He didn’t think, he didn’t question—he just acted.
What she wanted, she took—without regard.
It was only one night, but it changed everything.
After losing his fiancée, Ben Covington is unsure he’ll ever love again. But he’s so deeply drawn to Bell Wilde that he’s thrown for a loop. Maybe it’s purely sexual chemistry that’s igniting their spark… or maybe it’s his second chance at love.
Bell Wilde has just gotten her life back on track and may not be up the challenge of Ben Covington coming back into it. However, once the spark is reignited…there’s no stopping it. But even if they both manage to pull together their frayed hearts, a secret from Bell’s past just might shatter them both.
The fourth Connections new adult novel (after Mended) is angst-filled and compulsively readable. Nearly six years after Ben Covington and Bell Wilde shared a night of passion, they run into each other at an awards banquet. Ben wants a relationship. Bell reluctantly acknowledges their fierce sexual chemistry, but insists on a no-strings-attached, friends-with-benefits arrangement or nothing at all. Determined to change her mind, Ben begins a concentrated plan of seduction involving erotic role-playing, romantic dinners, and light domination. But it turns out that Bell is hiding a huge secret that will almost certainly derail their budding relationship. Karr's world is filled with imperfect yet relatable characters, a familiar but well-written story, and hotter-than-hot sex scenes.
