Carson Bradley is a super hot, rich, CEO of a pharmaceutical company. The man oozes sex. He lost what he thought was the love of his life at 17 to Cancer. It broke him. So when his mother set him up with Bianca he just went with the flow. When Carson boards his plane to fly to their wedding location fate steps in and smacks him a good one.
Lillian Ly has been accepted to attend the prestigious St. Croix Medical School. Over the moon with this she leaves her mother behind and heads off. Lillian has been a saint her entire life. Nose to the books kind of girl. Not allowing men to deter her. Even when she meets Richard who is pretty hot himself on the plane (who happens to be a med student as well) she politely declines him and asks to be just friends. Soon she is settled and months have passed by. Never did she know that Fate would drop the one person who would change her life forever on the beach in front of her.
This book was very interesting. It had the typical bad boy millionaire and the virginal girl vibe. I almost said ehh no can do.. BUT the story line caught me with something different. The author did a good job at twisting a tale that kept you wondering what would happen next. Bianca is out for blood and really give Carson and Lily a run for their money. Carson is so overprotective of Lily. It was fun to watch him protect her but also it was nice to see him come out of his shell. You could really feel that it was like a kid in a candy store with him. He had blocked off his heart for so long that when fate brought them together it was like his heart instantly kicked down the walls around it. There are so many ups and downs in this book. You want to beat Bianca she is a horrible person. I felt so bad for Lily throughout this book. But Bianca isn’t done yet. As I got closer and closer to the end of the book my worst nightmare was becoming more of a possibility.. yes folks.. the dreaded Cliff Hanger!!! It wasn’t a super bad cliff but, it is there. Now to impatiently await book 2!!!

He rips my panties off. The crisp, echoing sound of torn lace makes me even hotter. “Not good enough. Promise me, Lil.” His voice is more demanding and authoritative. Am I finally seeing and hearing the real Carson? He drops down to his knees to place his head between my thighs, gently spreading them apart. Oh god, I feel his pounding tongue, taunting and coercing me to tell him what he wants to hear. He’s too good at this. I’m not a worthy opponent against his seduction.
“Uh…uh…yes, I promise,” I pant as his velvet tongue glides inside my pulsing walls, tasting the sweet result of his doing. Without any warning, I hear a soft buzzing sound and then vibrating sensation sends my entire body into an explosive volcanic eruption. “Uh…uh…Carson, oh my god!” I moan and then clench my jaw, trying to hang on to my dignity. I find myself gripping the sheets tighter and then my fingers find their way through his thick, dark hair, pulling him closer to me with my bound wrists.”

Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen and wrote the first sentence of a fantasy that I’ve imagined ever since I was a daydreaming little girl—minus the steamy parts of course. That initial sentence was the seed that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart. If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I’ve succeeded my goal.
I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t laugh! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or Mr. Hot Billionaire in my book, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become your reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.
