Series: Billionaire Bosses #2
Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat… And everything to set her heart on fire.
Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted… And exactly what he needs.
With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?
Penthouse Player make an appearance in this book since Tristan and Nash are friends.
September 11, 2001 is a day that everyone remembers especially New Yorkers' because chances are you are either personally effected by that horrible day or someone close to you was. I can tell you everything that happened to my family that day from the first plane flying into the towers to the aftermath of the all the destruction and heartbreak. Nixie lost both her parents that day, and Nash's brother joined the Military in response to the attacks and died in combat years later. This story starts on September 11, 2017, sixteen years after the devastating events. The first time Nash sees Nixie he is taken by her flaming hair and attractive body but then he notices something that Nixie doesn't realize....she's being followed into an alley by two men. To say that Nash comes to her rescue is an understatement because of the way things turn out. Maybe it was fate stepping in on a day that they both needed it.
I enjoyed this book for several reasons, first off Nixie was a strong female character, some may consider her weak but if you have ever been in an abusive relationship you know that it takes strength to remove yourself from it and that is what Nixie has done. Did she run away from her problems, yes she did, but that isn't a sign of weakness in my eyes. Nash won me over, I must admit that at first I didn't really like him he reminded me to much of an overbearing, domineering, potentially abusive alpha male but I am happy to say that most of me first impression of him was wrong. He he had his moments of being overbearing as well as domineering and could be considered a stalker a time or two but that is where it ended....thankfully.
Tara Leigh has taken us on a path of self discovery for both Nash and Nixie, while their chemistry was great I really enjoyed watching Nash go from his playboy was to a man that was committed to the woman he loved. I look forward to the next book in this series and I really cannot wait for Tara Leigh's new series Nothing But Trouble, with the first book Rock King being released on February 20, 2018.
