No Woman Has Ever Denied Him… Until Now
In the urban jungle of Los Angeles, hard-working city girl Cathlene Patterson has her hands full juggling two jobs. She meets wealthy and cynical businessman Nick Maxwell who immediately falls hard for her independent spirit. He offers to rescue her from the daily grind but she’s no damsel in distress. Although she craves Nick with a burning lust, she challenges his advances at every turn. He boldly and ruthlessly bends rules to win her love, only to have them backfire. Cathlene delves deep into his bad boy persona and touches a part of him he had long buried. Her stubbornness rivals his own and distrust keeps them apart, but nothing will prevent Nick from claiming His Unquenchable Desire.
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Cathlene works hard to take care of herself and her debts. The last thing she wants is a handout or some hot rich guy trying to take care of her.
Nick gets what he wants and what he wants is Cathlene. He’s never had a woman say no to him or his money, so when she does he’s at a complete loss on how to win her, but that won’t stop him from trying.
Nick goes above and beyond stalker. He watches her, he has people watch her, and he bribes information about her from other people…he’s kind of creepy in that aspect. He does have his sweet moments, but the overpowering ‘I get what I want’ attitude gets a little much.
Their relationship is hot and cold and honestly didn’t feel quite right to me. Cathlene has kind of a poor me feel about her, while on the other hand I couldn’t quite decide if I even liked Nick or not.
“You should know that sometimes guys tend to act stupid when they’re getting too close to a woman.”
As for the writing, it switched back and forth between Cathlene and Nick entirely too often. Sometimes it would only be a sentence or two and then it would switch back. For me it was just too much. However, His Unquenchable Desire is a fast read with an interesting storyline.
