Synopsis

Sparks Fly … Lines Blur… Hearts Break

Alexander Avery is rich, powerful and the sexiest man Angeline Hemming has ever laid eyes on: a man like every woman dreams about. Angel is not immune to his sensual and ruthless pursuit, and Alex is intoxicated by the beautiful doctor; overwhelmed with desire like he’s never known.

As one of Angel’s profiling cases gets more and more dangerous, Alex finds himself filled with unfamiliar panic and emotional turmoil; his need to protect her goes against Angel’s adamant insistence that she doesn’t need his help. He isn’t a man to sit on the sidelines when the woman he’s obsessed with is threatened, so he takes control to protect her without telling her of his plans.

Angel’s fortitude is shaken when her stalker invades not only her personal life but also those close to her… even when that someone is as powerful and seemingly untouchable as Alexander Avery. Professional ethics insist she keep the details or her work secret, even as their newfound closeness has her yearning to confide in him. But, as Angel’s quest to protect her heart from Alex’s undeniable pull equals her need to keep him out of a dangerous situation, circumstances dictate a huge decision; which could have detrimental, and irreversible consequences for them both. 

When danger threatens and jealousy reaches the boiling point, lies will be told and secrets kept… Even with the best intentions and the most undeniable connection … the deepest of loves will be tested.

Blog Tour Review-Jo Rushton

"Confessions After Dark" is the second book in the "After Dark" series. Do not read this book until you have read "Angel After Dark" as it is a continuing story. 

I absolutely loved "Angel After Dark" (the first book in this series) and gave it five hearts and knowing I was getting another dose of Angel and Alex sent me giddy with excitement. This couple were just brilliant together and I couldn't wait to see what was in store for them next.

In this story, Angel's job was becoming more and more dangerous and when her relationship with Alex was threatened, she believed her only option was to push Alex away. Unfortunately, Alex wasn't the kind of guy you could easily walk away from. 

Alex was madly in love with Angel so when she attempted to end their relationship, as much as he was left heartbroken, he was determined to find a way for them to be together. For the first time in his life, he could see a future with a woman and he wasn't about to give that up without a fight. 

"Your body tells me you want this as much as I do. 
This is going to to happen and keep happening. Stop fighting it." 

Angel continued to be as independent as she was in the first book, but this time her determination to tackle problems by herself rather then share them drove me mad! She had her strong, sexy boyfriend, willing to do anything to help but instead she pushed him away. It infuriated Alex and I wondered how long he would be willing to wait for her. How long he would put up with her hot and cold ways. I really didn't know what was going to happen between this couple. 

"Do you think I'm not suffering? That I haven't been suffering? The way you tease me, 
taunt me...staying just out of my reach! You suck me in closer, and then pull away again! 
You're sending me to hell and I've had enough." 

It wasn't all bad times though, the good times between Angel and Alex made my heart melt. Together they were hot, sexy and passionate. Alex was a true romantic and I fell in love with him all over again. I loved the way he treated Angel. He was consistently showing her how much he cared for her. There is something extremely sexy about a man who is not afraid to show his true feelings!!! 

"Agony and ecstasy all rolled up into one. You are everything to me." 

Throughout this book, there were so many battles and arguments between the pair and I found myself craving those tender moments the couple had previously shared. From the start, I was invested in Alex and Angel's story and so many times, I felt like I was right there with them, through all of their highs and lows. By the end of the story my heart was hurting and I needed a glass of wine and chocolate to ease the pain. 

So even though this book has wrecked me emotionally and I feel like I've been on the world's bumpiest roller-coaster, it was definitely a ride worth taking. Alex and Angel have become one of my favourite book couples and I desperately wanted them to work things out, to see the good times out-way the bad. Their love for each other was truly worth the fight. 
And now I am left patiently waiting for book three! Confessions After Dark gets 5 bumpy hearts! 

Excerpt:


EXCERPT:

“Mmmmm… ” Alex murmured. The sound of his voice begged her to push the door open further. The smooth mahogany gave way beneath her trembling fingertips to reveal a lone figure sprawled face down on the bed. 

Angel’s breath left her lungs in a grateful rush as she leaned on the doorframe, hands reaching out to take her weight. Relief washed through her. He was here and he was alone. God help her, that fact was just as important. 

The sheet was falling low on his waist, clinging precariously to the curve of his butt, the strong expanse of his shoulders presented to her below the dark hair. It looked longer than she remembered, and she stood there, willing him to turn so she could see the lines of his face. Her lips parted to call his name, but he stopped her by calling hers first.

“Angel, don’t do this.”

She gasped softly and moved to the side of the bed, crawling gently onto it to kneel beside him, her rear resting on her feet. His scent surrounded her, a mixture of musky cologne and Alex. The skin, molded over the strong contours of his back, fascinated her. She wanted to touch, to feel the silken texture beneath her fingers, to run her nose down his spine, to taste the salty tang on her tongue. 

Angel was falling apart, her weakness overwhelming her. Earlier, she’d fought ruthlessly, but now, she had no fight left. With Alex, she wanted to surrender. The truth of it was undeniable.

“What am I doing?” she asked softly, reaching out to smooth her hand over the back of his head and down the strong muscles of his back. He was warm, a sharp contrast to her own skin, and the familiar electricity ran between his flesh and hers—tangible and alive.

Alex shifted, turning his head toward her. He was still sleeping, his features soft in the dark blue glow of night. “You deny us..."
