My Rating ~ 4 bites out of 5

It’s just another boring normal night in the life of Aaron Pilan. He’s being groped at work by a regular restaurant patron, his roommate calls telling him to bring home beer, his ex-girlfriend is hanging out at his apartment waiting for him to get home so she can ignore him and Aaron is too apathetic to change any of it. Lucky for him, as he’s leaving work he encounters a sexy woman, but before he can even think of approaching her he witnesses two men attack her and he takes a fatal gunshot to the chest. In an instant, instead of letting him die for her mistake, the woman decides to save him, to make him like her.  Aaron wakes up three days later no longer normal, boring, apathetic or human.

Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time and yet having everything turn out better than expected. Aaron was just minding his own business leaving work when he sees a gorgeous blond walking down the street. He’s captivated by her, but just as it looks like she’s, wonder of wonders, going to come talk to him, a car with two corrupt cops pulls up and demands her attention. When they get out and attempt to assault her, she takes them down, but not before Aaron is shot in the chest. Feeling remorse for her part in his impending death Michelle decides to save him. In doing so he will be bound to her for all time, she the Master, he the slave. It sounds like a bad thing, but after some rocky patches they end up rubbing along together quite well.

This was a very enjoyable read. The writing was smooth, the plot flowed quickly, the characters were interesting and the multiple POVs were insightful. I happen to enjoy multiple POVs, too. I look forward to continuing this series.

  1. Thank you for a wonderful review. Very much appreciated.

    You should know the second novel in the series, The Nightlife Las Vegas, is currently available on a FREE promotion on Amazon:

    Nothing like a little Vegas style debauchery for Valentines day. :)
