This was truly a wonderful trilogy. Sylvie and Connor are my newest favorite couple. Ms. Frances blew me away with her wit, humor and erotic sex scenes. This will definitely be a re-read for me. Connor definitely redeemed himself in this last book and I've not quite met a heroine like Sylvie before. Their love story was different than the usual poor girl meets billionaire plot line and romance readers will definitely love this series. Great job Ms. Frances. I wish you had a 4th book in this series. I'm sad that I've finished and its been a while since I read a book that kept be guessing until the very end. Loved it!
Her jaw dropped. Connor hadn't left it at threatening calls. He'd barged into the offices of Bookworm Press and had a verbal and physical altercation with Jameson. Sylvie couldn't believe what she was reading. Words led to shoves and their subordinates had to step between them, to stop them from throwing punches at one another. Sylvie sat shaking her head. They were fighting over who she was going to work for? How immature! She didn't blame Jameson. She blamed Connor for causing the scene. This was the same man who couldn't be bothered seeing her Saturday night, who treated her like a discarded toy, a possession he no longer wanted, and now he's threatening to fight people for her? The whole thing was ridiculous! Why all this macho posturing?
Saturday he didn't want her. Now he wants her? Make up your frigging mind Connor!
She didn't understand men. If you throw something away, if you leave it on the curb, and someone else picks it up, you have no right to demand they give it back. You don't want it, but you don't want anyone else to have it either? Connor couldn't have it both ways.
She didn't belong to him. He had no say in the matter. He'd lost that right.ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sylvie decided not to respond to the last email. Though Jameson was obviously gloating over the fact that Connor was apoplectic about Sylvie leaving his employ, she was afraid that on further reflection he might not want to get in a pissing contest with Connor after all. Articles on the internet portrayed Connor as a ruthless adversary, a coldhearted corporate cutthroat. From what she'd been told, he and Jameson had engaged in this stupid competition, this dick-slapping contest, for years. Maybe it wasn't as big a deal as Sylvie thought it was. Maybe it was just business as usual for them.
