The last thing Michaela Prentice expected was to end up in bed next to her friend Jordan Marsh after a wee bit too much champagne. The sex was incredible but she doesn't want their one night to ruin their friendship.
The last thing Jordan Marsh wants is to remain friends with Michaela. They’d crossed the line from friends to lovers and that was where he was going to stay, after all he’d been relentlessly plotting her seduction for months.
Now Michaela has woken up to a slight hangover, a relationship with a guy she thought she knew, a mother planning a wedding, and a brother and a best friend who think it’s important to run a background check on your new man. What could be more normal?
Just as Michaela is beginnings to adjust to the status of their new relationship things start exploding; literally.
This story started out nicely with Michaela and Jordan's friendship turned romance. However, the way it progressed through the pages was a little less appealing.
Jordan is obsessed with Michaela, which would be sweet, except for the fact that he refuses to leave her alone. He just jumps from zero to a million in a matter of minutes, not even pausing for a second. And I get it--when you care about or love someone, you don't want to let them go. But his love for her kinda crosses the line. Sure, she cares about him, but it felt like he was forcing her to stay with him and not giving her the choice. Yes, there is a mutual attraction, but if it were me, I'd like it if I could make a decision on my own instead of having one made for me.
Relentless was a fairly good story despite my issues with it. I did like some aspects of their relationship. Also, the side story with the mystery and danger was interesting enough. There's a chance I may pick up another one of Anna Wells stories someday.
