Book Review: Off Limits by Clare Connelly
As promised, this month I'll be reviewing all four of the titles from Harlequin's new DARE range, starting with Off Limits by Clare Connelly!
The first thing you should know about this book is that it is FREE. Yup, that's right, FREE at all major ebook stores. I'm presuming this is a limited-time offer for the launch month of the new DARE range, so do get in and grab it now! It's well worth the read.
Gemma Picton has grown up in the lap of luxury, but she's not content to sit on her behind and let the world revolve around her. A brilliant lawyer, she's now the in-house counsel for Jack Grant, billionaire playboy... and grieving widower. For two years, Gemma has kept Jack at a professional distance, but bit by bit, the walls are coming down. What sort of happily-ever-after can there be, though, for a girl who's never dreamed of white picket fences and a man who lost the love of his life?
This is an unconventional romance, but it works because neither Gemma nor Jack WANT a conventional sort of relationship. I absolutely loved Gemma's fierce, determined approach to life, her absolute refusal to compromise her principles for anyone. Her relationship with her grandmother the duchess was fabulous; I could have read a whole novel on the two of them alone.
The sex scenes in this book are hot, they are graphic and they start early on. It's not for the faint-hearted, but you could probably have guessed that from the cover. Off Limits is a great example of an unconventional relationship portrayed the right way, with a happy ending that was totally believable for the two characters in question. I thoroughly enjoyed the read, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the DARE range! Five stars for a fantastic, super sexy read!
