It was an innocent mistake…

All workaholic real estate broker Addison Andrews wanted was one night of pleasure, and picking the right guy was no different than shopping from a catalog thanks to the dating app on her phone. His name was Wilder, and his profile was blank – just a sexy picture of a man who promised every wicked intention of a one-night stand.

The agreement was simple. One night. No last names. But the second their bodies melded together in the sheets of their posh Manhattan hotel room, there was no denying they fit together like two pieces of a broken puzzle.

There’s just one problem…

Addison unknowingly swiped right on the one man she wasn’t supposed to be with – her new stepbrother. All it takes is one bite of forbidden fruit to become addicted, but being with him has major consequences for their entire family. And if anyone found out about them, the career she worked so hard to build would crumble to the ground.

But Wilder Van Cleef doesn’t care about the possibility of a scandal. He wants her, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes.

Winter Renshaw is another author that I've seen around, and I decided that it was time to give her a go! The blurb hooked me and I thought that this would be a lot of fun... So why not listen to it? I hadn't listened to Thomas Fawley and Katie McAble before, and I really enjoyed listening to them as they told Addison and Wilder's story.

It was interesting the way that Addison and Wilder met, and how Wilder was so dominant in the bedroom. Addison was so set in her ways, so it was nice to see her give control over to Wilder. It was supposed to be a one night stand, but Wilder couldn't let it go and they kept crossing paths, over and over!

I don't think either Addison and Wilder realised how much that they would like one another or the situations that they would find themselves in. Every time though, I knew they were meant to be. They were hot and sexy together, but complications always arose. I liked that Addison was loyal to her family, but Wilder could not let her get away.

These two were hot and cold, and each complication made it hard, and I kind of lost a little interest after a while. Then the ending changed and wrapped up so quickly, that it didn't seem believable... I wanted to love this one, but sadly I didn't. But I don't think it has deterred me too much, because I want to see more Coco! I love Addison’s sister, so I need to revisit this world! 

*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

A little bit of interaction between Addison and Wilder and a little advice in the second one from Coco.

“Of course you want to be with me again,” I said. “I just let you tie me up and have your way with me.”
Wilder winced in pain—the emotional type, not the physical. I was quite positive most women threw themselves at him.
“I meant it when I said I don’t do relationships,” I said.
“I did too.” His teal eyes searched mine. “I don’t do relationships. Hooking up on a regular basis does not constitute a relationship, Addison. Not in my world.”

“You know that dating app everyone’s using right now?” I asked her.
She furrowed her perfectly sculpted brows. “Yeah, we just did a story on that not too long ago. It’s supposed to be for dating, but most people use it to find casual sex and hook-ups.”
“I was doing a little shopping, and I came across him,” I said quietly. “It all just happened a lot faster than I thought it would.”
Coco’s mouth hung open in disbelief. “So you met a random stranger on a dating app and had sex with him?”
I nodded, rearranging the silverware at my place setting until the bottoms all lined up. “So unlike me, right?”
“Addison,” she said, staring at me intently “Never kiss a stranger. Not in this city. You never know who you’re really kissing.”
