The plane begins its ascent, the engines roaring to life. Fenton whips out a file from his briefcase and gives it a once-over. Again, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do and it’s killing me.
I pull my Kindle out of my bag and try to become invested in a second-chance romance about a rock star, but it’s nearly impossible sitting next to him. Each time I become engrossed in the words, he moves and my senses are assaulted by his proximity. The third time this happens, I search the ebook for ‘cock’ and start reading a sex scene. I need some form of undoing and if that has to be done via fictional character, so be it.
The heroine is taking the hero into her mouth when a low rumble radiates beside me. Startled, I look up and see Fenton smirking.
“What?” I push the power button on my e-reader and place it on my lap. I realize the jet has leveled off and it’s quiet in the cabin. “What are you looking at me like that for?”
“Just wondering what you’re reading.”
“Because,” he says, his eyes darkening, “your entire posture changed. Your lips parted, your breathing became labored. I’m intrigued.”
“I don’t think you’d be interested in this.”
“Trust me—if it gets that kind of reaction out of you, I’m definitely interested.”
Dragging in a lungful of air, I remember Presley’s pep talk and decide I have nothing to lose.
I switch on the tablet and find the page. “She drew his cock into her mouth, stroking his shaft as she licked a pool of semen from the tip.” I glance over my shoulder and his eyes are wide. I wink. “A growl escaped his throat as she stroked his velvety length, running her tongue—”
“Enough.” He snatches the Kindle from my grasp and places it on his briefcase. “Fucking hell, Brynne. Do you want fucked right here?”
Wherever It Leads is one of my favorite books so far this year. This book just grabs your attention from the very first sentence. We quickly see that Fenton is not a man to mess with, and he seems used to getting what he wants. And after finding a lost cell phone, he wants Brynne.
Brynne has not had an easy year. After being cheated on by her boyfriend, her brother goes missing, and it just seems like nothing is going right for her. Then she loses her cell phone, and she feels like the universe is out to get her. That is until she meets up with Fenton to retrieve her lost phone.
Fenton was already attracted to Brynne from the pictures that he saw on her phone, but was not prepared for the reaction he would have to seeing her in person. Brynne was literally speechless when she saw Fenton. He was undeniably gorgeous and intense, and she was instantly drawn to him.
The day after meeting, while they’re on their first date, Fenton makes Brynne an offer that she knows she should refuse, but her heart and her head are in conflict over the decision. Her BFF, Presley, helps convince Brynne that taking Fenton up on his offer would be good for her, and it would only be a rebound anyway. Brynne agrees, but after being with Fenton after only a short time, she knows that her heart is at risk of being broken once again.
Fenton doesn’t believe in love. He planned to spend time with Brynne and get to know her, but he hadn’t planned on the emotional pull that he would have towards her. The closer they get, the more torn Fenton becomes. He knows that there is a secret that he has to let Brynne in on, but knows that he will lose her once she finds out. Once everything is out in the open, will Brynne be able to forgive Fenton? And what will he lose to ensure that Brynne gets what she wants most?
Wherever It Leads was simply amazing. The characters were incredible, and the storyline keeps you drawn in from beginning to end. Highly recommend. 5 well-deserved stars.
