(Hamden Series, Book 3)
Lola Nash’s life edges on safe and controlled, containing few people; her brother, Boyd, a handful of friends and the facility for special needs children where she volunteers, called Aaron’s Place. However, a chance meeting shatters her control when she learns someone else’s closely held secret. The kind of secret causing her explicit and sexy dreams, all centering around Wes Thompson; known as Adonis in the ultra-exclusive world of the sex club, Olympus. Wes is intrigued by the voluptuous beauty who won’t give him the time of day. Like the God he emulates, he has never been the type to give in when he wants something or someone; Lola is exactly what he wants. Is Lola the one that can bring a God to his knees or will Wes conquer her, and then walk away as planned? Is the chance at love worth the cost of giving up everything you hold important? When the cards are down, will Wes and Lola call or fold?
“If you think your money impresses me, what can I say, I’m not a diamond or top shelf kind of girl.”
Yep. That would be strong and stubborn yet, caring, Lola Nash -- never afraid to speak her mind. But don’t let appearances fool you, there’s a lot more to her than meets the eye… which is why she’s perfect for our Hamden hottie, Wes Thompson.
“When I’m awake, when I’m asleep, all I see is her.”
The third book in the Hamden Series, Three of Diamonds, takes in ways, a darker and sexier tone than the other two books. I knew Wes’ story was going to be a good one, but hell, it was great! I was intrigued from the very beginning and looking forward to finding out everything about him and Lola. The secrets Lola had were simply put, heartbreaking. I felt so much sympathy for her. Like I said, she’s one strong woman and the last thing Lola ever expected, was to have her life changed forever by hot and sexy alpha male, Wes.
“Yes, he may be all business by day, however at night he was anything but. A private sex God who she was sure could make any woman feel things they’ve only read and dreamed about.”
“I want to taste you on my fingers.”
HOT HOT HOT! And did I mention, HOT? Because yeah, this is one HOT book. The chemistry between Lola and Wes sizzled from my Kindle. Very well written steamy scenes, in my opinion.
Just like with the other books, I also loved the fact that the problems in Three of Diamonds, were very much realistic and relatable. The things that went on here, could happen to just about anyone. In fact, this was the first books I’ve read that actually touches the subject of kids with special needs. Lola has a younger brother with Down syndrome and W. Ferraro, nailed it! She got everything about it perfectly…from the temper tantrums to the over excitements. Oh, and seeing how Wes was with Boyd, melted my heart. Talk about a swoon worthy man…. *sigh*
In this book we also got to see the other amazing characters and how their stories have unfolded. Loved how they all treated each other as one huge, crazy family. I’m hoping we get more books in this series… like CeCe’s story or even Aimee’s. I’m just not ready to say goodbye to these characters yet.
As usual, I loved the ending!!!!! The author knows how to give everyone their true HEA. I finished reading with a huge smile across my face.
Go buy this book!
“I love you, Lola, you will always be the best part of me.”
