Selene Michaels is determined to never let anyone make her feel inferior again. After a painful divorce, she finds herself in Paris on a working holiday, hopeful that this will be the opportunity she has been waiting for. She intends to have fun and maybe find a Prince Charming to flirt with; someone who will show her a good time, treat her right, and awaken her to all she has been missing. What she does not expect to find is Remington St. Germain and his adorable son, Adrien. Remington is intense, devastatingly hot and a Prince Charming on the outside, but a dirty talking, insatiable devil behind closed doors—the opposite of the man she has been hoping for—and not the type to give up on something that he wants. Selene soon realizes that life with Remington is not only interesting, but adventurous. It’s dangerous, and she’s about to find out how dangerous. . . if she is brave enough to take a chance.
So I meant to post this review today, rather than Obliterate's since it doesn't release until Monday, but I guess I'm suffering post-holiday brain scramble. So forgive me - and enjoy my review of Havoc. :)
Havoc is a nice mix of second-chance love, steam, and suspense. And I thrilled at meeting Selene and Remington. I'm anxious to continue their story!
Both Selene and Remington are scarred souls. Selene is piecing her life back together, trying to regain the confidence she once had. She's also reclaiming the career she let go and is in Paris for a new campaign launch. Remington is mysterious and sends mixed signals to Selene in the beginning. But he's an artist and a gorgeous single-dad, so he's broody nature seems fitting.
The sexual tension between Selene and Remington is incredible. Remington seems to be able to say so much with a look, a touch... Grey did an excellent job of conveying the pull between these two. And Grey tells the story from both Selene's and Remington's POVs, so we get to know what each is thinking.
The suspense element was just heating up at the end and it definitely has me on edge. I sympathize with both Selene and Remington - understand their stances on where they should go from here. I do have a theory as to what's going on, so I'm eager to find out if I'm right. Luckily, January 5th, when Obliterate releases, isn't too far away.
