So in fact he was on the periphery. Still a part, but in a much different, smaller way. For years their motto had been play hard and live free. Being in a relationship changed a man. It changed his priorities. Ash got that.
He understood it. But it left Ash out of the loop. The third wheel. It was especially hard because, until Bethany, Ash and Jace had shared most of their women.
More often than not, they fucked the same women. He was restless and edgy, in search of something, he had no idea what. He was focused. Knew exactly what he wanted at all times and he had the wealth and power to make it happen. But what was the point when he himself had no clue what it was he wanted or needed at present? He scanned the park, taking in the baby strollers being pushed by mothers and nannies. He tried to picture himself with children and nearly shuddered at the thought.
He was thirty-eight, almost thirty-nine, a time when most men had already settled down and produced offspring. Maybe that was why they hated him so much now. He had more wealth and power than even the old man did. His grandfather. His grandfather had sold his successful business when Ash was still a boy. None of his family had worked a day in their lives.
He shook his head. Fucking leeches, the lot of them. HCM Global Resorts had projects in various stages of the works. The Paris hotel was a done deal after their having to work fast to replace investors that had backed out.
Things were moving along and progressing well. Ash was the only one not distracted by his personal life, so he had to step up.
Take some of the slack for his friends so they could enjoy having a life outside of work. He stopped mid-step and let his gaze settle more fully on her, taking in her appearance.
Long blond hair that drifted just so with the breeze, revealing a startlingly beautiful face with striking eyes that he could see even from the distance that he stood. She was wearing a funky long skirt that swirled with the wind, baring the long expanse of one leg. Blingy flip-flops adorned her feet and he could see the bright pink polish on her toes and a toe ring that sparkled when she moved her foot to shift position. The sun caught on a silvery ankle bracelet, drawing even more attention to her slender leg.
She was busy sketching, her brow furrowed in concentration as her pencil flew over the page, and beside her was a huge bag stuffed full, with rolled up papers extending from the top. But what most caught his attention was the choker she wore around her neck.
He made that instant assessment. It was tight around her neck, resting just at the hollow of her delicate throat. It was gaudy on her. It stood out, out of place. His curiosity was piqued because when he saw a piece of jewelry like that on a woman, it meant something far different than it did to most people and he was seized with interest to know if it was indeed a collar, or if it was just an ornament, chosen by her.
If Ash could make that judgment after mere moments of studying her, then how the hell could the man making love to her not see the same? Maybe the collar was more a reflection of her dominant, which was arrogant and idiotic.
A collar should represent his care of his submissive, how in touch with her he was, and it should fit the woman wearing it. He was making a hell of a lot of assumptions. It could just be a simple necklace the woman had chosen herself. But to a man like Ash, that piece of jewelry meant something more than just an accessory. Then she hastily slammed her sketchpad closed and began to shove it into her bag. She half rose, still stuffing things into that huge bag, and he realized she was leaving.
Before he was even aware of it, he hurried forward, intrigued. Adrenaline rushed through his veins. The hunt. He wanted to know who this woman was, and what that collar she wore meant. And this woman was beautiful.
And perhaps exactly what he was looking for. How would he know unless he got to her before she bailed? He was nearly to her when she whirled around, bag in hand, obviously preparing to walk away and she nearly bumped headlong into him.
He probably looked like some stalker about to attack. The bag tipped over, coming loose from her grip, and the contents spilled, pencils, brushes and papers flying everywhere. Bizarre cover art aside, this was a great read.
It was the sort of fun, ultra-sexy, modern romance that can eat up an entire Saturday. I have already ordered the next two books in the trilogy.
This is the first book in the Breathless Trilogy, and like all good books in a contemporary series, it features three best friends, Gabe, Jace and Ash, who are also super attractive, wealthy and powerful.
Seriously, do these guys all meet at a prep school for unnaturally attractive boys? Why do they not have one fat, awkward friend? Anyway, the guys run a successful hotel and resort company, each of their unique personalities contributing to the success of the business. Gabe Hamilton is the man who takes the vision for a new hotel and makes it a reality, with meticulous attention to detail and absolute refusal to settle for anything less than perfection.
Gabe is demanding, brooding, sexy, and he always gets what he wants. Mia is strictly verboten. Engaging in sexy shenanigans with her would cause Jace to bust a nut, and also pretty much destroy their friendship and business partnership. Mia wants Gabe too. When Gabe offers her a job as his personal assistant, she thinks, sure why not?
Gabe presents Mia with a contract outlining the parameters of their relationship. Basically he wants to dominate and control, with her available to him at all times. In the context of this story, the contract makes sense.
Gabe is still struggling with the idea that she may not have enjoyed or felt fulfilled by the relationship he thought she was a willing participant in, and so he makes it very clear to all his lovers what he is looking for. His need for control is just a part of his personality, the same personality that allows him to be a very successful, focused businessman.
I want you to be satisfied.
