Her story started long before she started working at The Sky Launch...
Screw fairytales. The only reward Gwen Anders got from her rough childhood was a thick skin and hard heart. She’s content with her daily grind managing a top NYC nightclub—Eighty-Eighth Floor. So hers isn’t a happily ever after. She doesn’t believe in those anyway.
Then she meets J.C.
The rich, smooth talking playboy is the sexiest thing that Gwen has ever encountered, but she’s not interested in a night-in-shining latex. But when a family tragedy pushes her to the brink, it’s J.C. who’s there to teach her a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires. His no-strings-attached lessons require her to abandon her constant need for control. Her carefully built walls are obliterated.
Gwen discovers there’s a beautiful world outside her prison. Freedom is exhilarating—and terrifying. When she starts to feel something for J.C., she fears for her heart. Especially as she realizes that he has secrets of his own. Secrets that don't want to set him free.
This series can be read alone or with the Fixed Trilogy.
Gwen is the manager of Sky Launch , the hottest nightclub around. She is very strict , hard working and very professional when it comes to her working place. She had a harsh beginning in life and this added to her cool and emotionally closed-off personality. She likes to stick by the rules and keep everything under control. ... until CJ makes his presence known by breaking every single rule of the club.
" He was arrogant and crass. Ridiculous and entitled."
CJ now owns the club's VIP rooms and he enjoys pushing Gwen's buttons more than he enjoys breaking the rules.
"The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do."
The story was good, but not great. The steamy scenes were great though , but I failed to connect with the characters on many levels..
