Clandestine from Ava Harrison is perfect steamy, angsty romance perfection. With its flawed characters and passionate moments, I couldn’t put down Spencer and Olivia’s story.
Spencer is the controlling, emotionless CEO readers have come to expect in romance novels. When we first meet him, he is all arrogant and stolid. When he connects with Olivia, thought, is when readers get to finally see the man beneath, and this is man that they will swoon over. He becomes the epitome of the CEO romance hero.
Olivia is such a flawed heroine. Incredibly insecure and broken, she doesn’t see herself as worthy of anything or anyone. Every time something in her life falls apart or someone leaves, it is because she doesn’t measure up. Normally, this type of heroine bothers me, but her timidity only made me sympathetic to her character. I could see her self-worth being chipped away, and I cringed when she began to cope. I wanted better for her, because I truly liked her character and wanted her for Spencer. Her evolution throughout the story is without a doubt the biggest and the hardest fought battle, and at the end of the story I respected her struggle.
This story starts out heavy on the angst and steam, and it doesn’t let up until the end. Every single moment between Olivia and Spencer is electric, and the author does a great job moving them from lust to love in a believable fashion. Of course, the angst arrives with the many hurdles that come at them from both sides, and, as one would expect, they don’t always walk away unscathed. The readers will want to scream at them and will shake their heads in disappointment, but Ava Harrison delivers an ending the brings this couple full circle.
I absolutely loved this first Expose’ story from Ava Harrison. The characters and their journey will absolutely suck readers into the story, burning them up with the passion and romance of Spencer and Olivia.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
That was our agreement.
But Spencer Lancaster was addictive.
And I was high.
High off his taste, starved for his kiss, and desperate for his touch.
So when he asked me to stay, to enjoy his company for more nights than I knew I should, I wasn’t in the right mind to say no.
Everything was perfect. A dream come true.
But half a world away there were secrets.
All of the truths that could tear us apart.
