Henry Wolf is a deliciously wicked, sinfully handsome man who has done a very bad thing.
Worse, he owns me now—every inch of my body and a sizeable chunk of my stupid, naïve heart.
And he’s made it clear that if I want to keep my job and stay in Alaska, I’m stuck catering to his every whim and wish—both in the hotel and in his bedroom—while I wait for the potential fiery media circus ring that will no doubt drag my reputation into the gutter along with his, should his past discretions surface.
I will not surrender to his demands, not when I have dirt to hold over his head. IF I have the guts to blackmail him, that is. And something warns me that going through with it will have disastrous consequences for my heart.
Break Me in some ways, well, broke me. Not to worry though. NWest repaired the damage. LOL
Ha! Nice pun, wifey 🙂
Okay, I’m going to start with the shit-storm swirling around Henry. There’s the stress of the hotel opening and having to schmooze people…namely women. Then there’s his dad and asshole brother arriving and said brother trying to stir up trouble. And then there’s the matter of allegations made by Henry’s former assistant. This all causes problems for Abbi and Henry’s fledgling romance. I know that Henry tried to explain things to Abbi, to prepare her for the things she might see and/or hear, but I felt like he should have known better. Yes, he’s used to being with women who are more mature and confident but he knew, KNEW, Abbi would react less maturely and confidently. They’ve spent enough time getting to know each other that I think he should’ve expected she wouldn’t handle things well and should have prepared her better. What did you think?
I do kind of agree with you, however, Abbi really didn’t even think of what Henry said to her before he had to get out there and schmooze as usual. Plus, she saw herself what a twat the brother was, so I found it a little sad that she had no confidence in Henry and what he showed her when they were in private.
Abbi’s conclusions were understandable, in my opinion. I know that information was gleaned or was delivered from a less than reliable source, but given Abbi being who she is, I wasn’t surprised that she immediately drew negative conclusions. Her actions after coming to these conclusions are one of the things that broke me. Well, this whole situation did. But I was kinda shocked. And dismayed. I know it ends up making sense (in a way) but still. How did you feel about Abbi’s jumping to conclusions and her actions afterwards?
Yes, I do agree with this. It was definitely understandable, plus she was not at all sure of herself. So when she saw some things, and then heard some other things, it was rather natural that she would jump to those conclusions. I was totally shocked with how she reacted, though. Utterly!
Henry’s subsequent action was shocking. And I felt, telling. It spoke to the depth of his feelings. It also left Abbi adrift. What did you think of his reaction?
I was both shocked by Henry’s reaction and understood it at the same time. He probably didn’t understand what happened to make Abbi act that way.
When Abbi begins working with the landscaping crew she develops a strong bond with Ronan. And a lesser bond with Connor. These two have reputations – well-deserved – for being party boys. I appreciated getting to see a little deeper, especially with Ronan. With those feelings between them and the sexual tension that’s always been there, things heat up. I didn’t know quite how I felt about those developments other than THEY.WERE.HOT! I mean, there was no reason Abbi couldn’t hook up with Ronan and/or Connor. But still. My heart broke for Henry…while I was fanning myself. LOL What were your thoughts and feelings about these three?
Oh LOL! They were definitely very HOT! And I kind of told Abbi (in my mind) good for you, girl! Good for you! She let go a little more of her strict upbringing, and I think that was really something.
Henry’s return made me fearful and hopeful. I was afraid of how he would react upon learning all Abbi had been up to. I was fearful he might not care at all because he didn’t have any designs on rekindling things with her. But I was ever so hopeful his coming back was a sign he’d changed his mind. You?
Yeah, the return was definitely something, and I really didn’t know what to think of it. I was hopeful, but at the same time, I was afraid that Abbi was just going to be hurt again.
The ending segment was dramatic to say the least. I can’t imagine getting dire news about family and being so far away. The circumstances/arrangements for getting Abbi home had hope really blooming in my chest. And I immediately started the next installment, anxious to see where things went from here. What did you think about the ending?
That ending had me so sad and anguished! I actually did get news like that once… and it was awful to have to wait the whole day to get a plane to get home. I felt so bad for Abbi, and I also was kind of relieved with how Henry made sure she’d get home as quickly as possible.
