I will break every single rule to make her mine.
My life has always been defined by the extreme. I don’t balance - I’m an all or nothing kind of man.
Doesn’t sound healthy? It sure as hell isn’t.
Giving in to my cravings has almost ruined my life before and I’m not going to let it happen again.
That’s why I need rules. A strict regulation to keep my head in place.
Once a year. A different girl each time. No exclusivity – no addiction.
Laura is fueling my hunger like no girl ever has before.
But she’s not on the menu.
Taking her is against the rules.
Keeping her could ruin me.
…Or finally appease the monster within me.

Wickedly Delicious and Perfectly Imperfect
I loved this book! It was hard to put it down, I stayed up all night reading!!! This book was freaking addictive, hot, deliciously wicked, hot and hell did I mention hot? This review will probably just end up a big fangirling mess on how much I loved the raw, dirty, explosive fucking that went on in this book. Pardon my brashness. But yes. There was no love making. Well, maybe there was. But it didn't start out that way. Ryan Hawkins doesn't do love. He fucks, he gives into his dark cravings once a year. (Again. Sorry!!!) And he fucks hard. And good. And Laura can't get enough!! (Really who could blame her though One Indecent Proposal Turns Out To Be OH So Much More)Because I think I would’ve succumbed to the ways of Ryan myself. No shame. He is all alpha. Dominating. Powerful. Controlling. Possessive. And I know these have been done before. BUT! I just can't explain it. There's just something about him that just COMPLETELY did it for me!!! Cause when he says (“Yes, doll. I will fuck you until you don’t know your own name, and the fact that I’m the first one to ever do it won’t change my plans whatsoever,” he whispers, his piercing eyes blazing dark with lust. “You agreed to this. You wanted this. But don’t expect me to be gentle with you.”) Good lord!!!!! I don't think I've ever used the term "ovaries exploded" but yeah. That's pretty much what happened. He is very vulgar and blunt. And the dirty talkin. Ok. Now that I probably sound like a complete sex-crazed hornball.
Let's get to the story. Cause there's a really great story too!!! Double win!!!!
Ryan has a dark past and urges. He controls them by using an agency (Violent Delights) to send him a new woman each year to spend one night with him. He has rules set for himself and this annual retreat allows Ryan to explore his sexual dominant side without any major complications. That time of year is quickly approaching and this time Ryan wants to pick the leggy brunette beauty, Laura at his own Charity Event. He sees something special in her and has to have her. He doesn't expect Laura to unintentionally throw a wrench into his well laid plans.
Laura two years ago dropped out of college to take care of her dying mother. Now, she's waitressing to pay off her debts and to save enough money to move away for a fresh start with her best friend Layla. What Laura doesn't count on is meeting Ryan, and how the mysterious dominant billionaire is about to change her life.
