Tell Me Now (A Show and Tell Duet 1) by S. Moose
Bryce Hunter is rich, confident, powerful, and dominant. Men like him take what they want from any woman they want. Without thinking twice, they use you, break you, and then leave the pieces behind.
Past experience tells me to keep my distance, but there’s only one problem—the attraction between us is undeniable. I’m failing to control the desire he ignites in me, yet I know what will happen if I give in. I’ll be the broken pieces left behind.
With no boundaries, it’s not long before his cocky attitude and persistence wear me down. The attention and adoration he showers me with make me see him in a different light, and all too soon, I’m falling for his charms. Falling in love.
Love isn’t kind.
Love isn’t worth it.
Secrets come to light, and I find out I should always trust my instincts.
I’m the pawn in his game.
And I lose.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Tell Me Now is the first half of Bryce and Madison’s story. This emotional, heart-wrenching story, begins with Madison dealing with a bad break-up. She is emotionally vulnerable, and falls to the charms of Bryce. Knowing that she can’t deal with a man of Bryce’s caliber in her emotional state, she is determined to stay away from him after their night together, despite their connection. Bryce is just as determined that they will be together, and does everything in his power to get her to come around to his way of thinking.
This book is absolutely gut wrenching. My emotions were all over the place. Bryce is such a dark character, but his devotion is absolute. He has secrets that he knows can shatter everything, but hides so much of his past. Madison’s emotional vulnerability added a whole new dimension to the story. It seemed to both make her more susceptible to Bryce’s charms, and make her more determined to stay away from him. This story definitely kept me on edge right until the very last page. Every time I thought I knew what was coming next, something totally different happened!
Although I’m not fond of cliff hangers, this story was well written, and quickly had me trapped in its pages. I’m eagerly anticipating the next book in the duet, to complete their story.
