He ruined me.
Even though I knew he was playing games, I couldn’t resist him. He was under my skin, in my blood, and deep in my bones.
He saved me.
My life was a lie and I had no idea. He forced me to see the truth. Although it hurt, he healed me.
Because of him, I was strong enough to survive.
Without another word to me, he picked up the handset again and clicked it. “Jack, after you take out the trash, there’re two women at table fifteen. Tell them that King will be taking Jena home and that their tab is on the house.”
“No problem, boss.”
King’s eyes never left my face during this exchange. When he was done, he dropped the radio on the desk again.
“Now, you’re girls are taken care of and you and I need to have a chat.”
I straightened my shoulders. “Like I said, King, I appreciate your help but I’m leaving.”
“Sit. Your. Ass. Down. Jena,” he barked.
“Fuck you, King!” I shouted.
Suddenly he was right in front of me, no, practically on top of me, his left arm wrapping around me and pulling me tightly against his body. His right hand twisted in my hair, yanking my head back so hard it almost hurt.
I didn’t understand why, but I felt that tugging somewhere else on my body. Somewhere much lower.
“Don’t say it unless you mean it, darlin’,” he snarled.
Then he kissed me.
All or Nothing by C.C. Wood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
All Or Nothing is book 1 in the new Wicked Games series by C.C. Wood
All or Nothing contains some of my favorite aspects in any novel.
A sexy, demanding, overprotective alpha….
A no nonsense, independent, headstrong heroine that I think everyone can connect with…
Let me just jump right into the fact that I LOVE the men in this novel. Each Alpha introduced is better than the last. You won’t be able to help but fall in instant lust with them.
King comes off so cocky and sexy, that we instantly want him just as bad, if not more than Jena does! Jena has a love hate relationship with King. (And let’s be honest….that’s better than instalove 99% of the time anyway, right!) The physical attraction they have towards each other leaps off the pages and gives us one thigh clenching erotic read. Combine that unexpected twists, and you have a 5 star read and a great beginning to what is sure to be a fantastic series.
What I love about CC Wood’s writing style is that it’s full of character, story, and twists. She doesn’t pad her novel’s with “fluff” to hit word count. Which saves us from any dull moments or stale reading time, hoping that the books picks up again.No matter what she writes I know that each book to come is sure to be better than the last.
I CAN’T WAIT for the next Wicked Games!
