Zane Walker might have been brutally attacked and after months in the hospital, walked away with his life spared, but now that he’s out of the hospital, he has only one goal in mind. Getting the girl. From the first time he kissed her, Zane knew V was the one for him. He also knew that getting her wasn’t going to be as easy as he hoped. She’s stubborn and the walls she has erected around her heart are nearly impenetrable. However, there’s one thing about Zane – he never gives up. And he’s not about to start now.
Can V learn to open her heart to the one man who is desperate to get past those walls she has erected, or will she walk away to protect him? How long will Zane allow her to deny what he knows is growing between them? Or is the only option to obscure the underlying emotions with spine tingling lust?
When V and Zane come together, smoke detectors go on the fritz, but when they bring Zane’s best friend Beau into the mix, extra fire extinguishers are needed.
Zane is the second book of the Alluring Indulgence series and focuses on the youngest of the seven Walker brothers. Zane is attacked at the end of the first book and hospitalized for several months. He is attacked outside the home of Vanessa Carmichael, with whom he’d been having a fling. V blames herself for the attack on Zane. Zane blames himself.
This book had a much better back story than the first one. V suffered some pretty severe PTSD, having witnessed the attack on Zane. I really wish these books were told in the first person though – given the “deep thoughts” it would make the story much better. It would be even more awesome if it was told in 1st person, alternating POV. The “threesome” in this book included Beau, Zane’s best friend. I liked the storyline surrounding Zane and Beau coming to terms with the dynamics of their friendship.
There were a few times I wanted to slap V, but once I realized she had some PTSD, it made things easier to handle. As with the first book, there is SOME STEAMY, HOT SEX and a major cliffhanger leading into the third book. This is my first step into the menage genre, and I have not been disappointed.
