Heat Factor: Lots of peppers (and a tad of pepper spray perhaps?)
Character Chemistry: It overpowers all reason and sanity, I think
Plot: Sara was a promising student at Julliard when her whole life fell apart. Four years later, she sees a tall, wealthy, handsome man and they immediately get tangled up in a super intense, emotionally-explosive relationship with a lot of serious issues and roadblocks to happiness
Overall: This book is going to be like catnip for a VERY niche audience–if you thought Gossip Girl was the best, most romantic show around, this might be for you. If your favorite summer memories of love look like they came straight out of an episode of Jersey Shore, this might be for you. If you’ve ever heard that Sex and the City actually modeled fairly unhealthy female friendships and you thought “huh?”, this might be for you.
Character Chemistry: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my. Waiting for these two to get it going was like waiting to turn 6 when you’re 5.
Plot: So. Dominic takes over for his philandering, sexual assault-y lump of a father at his mother’s company. Ally is barely keeping it together trying to take care of her father, who has Alzheimer’s and needs to stay in his very expensive care facility. Dominic gets Ally fired from her job in a pizzeria, and Dominic’s mother hires Ally to work at their very intense fashion house.
Overall: This book was absolutely mind-bogglingly good.
