Title: The Good One
Author: Amie Nichols
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 5, 2016
River Scott is the daughter of a billionaire. She runs her father’s company and does what she is told, including cleaning up after her out-of-control, socialite, wild-child baby sister.
After a tragic night fifteen years ago, River feels she has no choice but to continue on the path of being the good one, keeping her sister in check and always pleasing her father.
She’s in a dead-end relationship, but all she wants is love, passion, and sweep-you-off-your-feet excitement.
Because of her sister, she meets ex-male escort, Damian Matthews. Their attraction is by far like nothing either have experienced. He gives her everything she wants and so much more.
Unfortunately, this is not the guy River’s father would approve of. He approves of Ryan Lane, a wealthy, successful playboy who is ready to settle down and start a life in politics. She knows Ryan is the smart choice, but no one makes her feel like Damian does.
When River starts dating Damian, a set of events are put into motion changing everything she thought she knew about her family.
Can River get what she wants without losing everything and hurting the one person she has sworn to protect for the rest of her life?
This is a standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual situations, this book is meant for adults over 18.
What happens when you mix a successful business woman and a retired male escort?
River is used to taking care of everyone else, but herself. Her younger sister, Charity, is a handful and keeps her on her toes. Charity requests a bachelorette party at ‘MCL’ and River has made it her job to do whatever her sister wants. River crosses paths with Damien, who owns MCL and is a retired escort. They both fall for each, but their relationship isn’t easy. River has family obligations that may keep her from Damien… good thing he doesn’t go down without a fight.
This book was fast paced and I was able to read it rather quickly. There are pieces of the story that keep you in suspense and secrets that you won’t see coming.
Damien is pushed out of his comfort zone because he isn’t used to chasing a girl. He’s never felt like this before for anyone. I do feel like his character was too pushy and needy at times, but then River finally catches up.
I also loved all the secondary characters. It looks like Josie and Brett are getting their story next, which I can’t wait to read.
4 out of 5 stars
My true passion is romance with some suspense and mystery. Giving my readers a reason to turn the page, with edge-of-your-seat thrills.
I love to write about sexy characters, alpha males and strong females. No matter what my story entails, know that you will leave with a warm fuzzy feeling and a HEA always.
Real life, well, let’s face it, can kind of suck sometimes. Full of stress and so many depressing things happening in the world. Reading is a way to escape the pressures of real life. This is why I like to give my readers a promise of a happy ending.
In life I think the simple pleasures are the ones that make the difference: coffee, wine, and a good book, to name a few.
I also love all animals, a soft spot in my heart for elephants. And of course, my fur babies. Two miniature dachshunds that make me smile every day.
