Hold Me Until Midnight by Christina Phillips
Grayson Brothers #1
I was pleasantly surprised by this one as I’ve had mixed results with the Entangled: Brazen line of novels. The chemistry between these two was fantastic and I really enjoyed watching the sparks fly.
“She might have fallen for Jackson against all her best intentions. But maybe it wouldn’t end with her getting her heart broken.”
I loved Scarlett and how real and genuine she is. She might have grown up in a life of privilege but she gives back, treats everyone with respect, and has a quiet dignity. Her compassion toward Jackson’s past was really sweet and she never doubts that her and Jackson are meant for each other regardless of their different life styles.
Jackson was a perfect growly, alpha male who can take charge but also respect the woman he’s with. For me, he’s just the right amount of alpha without being overbearing. He’s initially just in lust with Scarlett but slowly his feelings change the more he spends with her, especially when he begins to see the real Scarlett. There were a few times where Jackson thinks about something that used to annoy him but it doesn’t with Scarlett. It happens a few times and it’s just a small pet peeve for me in romance novels. Obviously when feelings are involved you feel differently about things but some of them were really early in their time together and seemed out of character for a guy who’s used to one night stands and keeping people at a distance.
4 stars – it was enjoyable
Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…
Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.
Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?
