So this one was not as good as Natalie and Flynn s story I loved Addie even in their books she was always one of my favorite secondary character, Hayden not so much Throughout this book though I think I got to learn about Hayden and see him a little differently so I started to like him Their romance is one of epic proportions Friends for 10 years and finally lovers and soul mates It is so sweet and so sexy I love how they open up to each other and their love knows no bounds I really love the epilogue, her birthday present to him is epic Completely and utterly epicFuck romance, this is our life I m talking about your life with me You are my life, Addison You have to marry me Say yes Say you will Yes, Hayden, I will Because, really, what does it matter how or when he asks The only thing I care about is that I get to spend my life with himSWOON ARC gifted by author in exchange for an honest review4.5 Rapturous Stars FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED I didn t want it until I had it, and now it s all I want She is all I wantI LOVED the first three books in the Quantum Series and I seriously believed that Flynn and Natalie were the ultimate couple You know, the ones that you keep coming back to after reading the next book in the series about a different couple Yeah, Flynn and Natalie where that for me They still are but Hayden and Addison are in equal running with them When I had finished the first book, Virtuous I had a huge dislike towards Hayden I can t pin point exactly what it was, maybe it was his behavior or dialogues or simple they Ms Force presented him to us, I just didn t like him But then as we slowly moved towards Valorous and Victorious I started to like him Not because he changed or cleaned up his act No It was because I realized that there were multiple facets to Hayden Roth and he kept himself so closed off that it would take something monumental for him to actually reveal his true self And you know what He did come undone by none other than Flynn s assistant Addison York From the moment Hayden kissed Addison in front of the whole world, the undercurrent tension that was between them Gosh Let s just say it wasn t under any.Hayden and Addie They are EXPLOSIVE, DYNAMIC and PERFECT for each other I m her partner Me No one else I realize tears are running down my face, and I don t care that I m crying for the first time in my adult life in front of someone I barely know My heart breaks at the thought of her doing those things with anyone but meI wish I wish I wish I could just post the whole dialogue but I would have given a lot away I wish I could just post the whole dialogue so that you could feel a smidgen of what I had felt when I read this scene I felt so heartbroken over Hayden s predicament Let s face it, when an Alpha male is brought down to tears you just can t handle it I actually had to stop for a minute to absorb what had actually transpired between the two Hayden and Addie s intensity is just OFF THE CHARTS After this little blip when they finally got together I actually squealed and kicked my legs I was just so HAPPY You re the only one I want You re the only one I ve ever felt this way about, and I ll never feel this way about anyone but youSigh This I was in La La Land and flying on Cloud 9 at this point.Like any other couple Hayden and Addie definitely had hardships But their hardships weren t exactly from outside influence Their hardships came in the form of Hayden s own insecurities and Addison s father And just like any of our favorite couple they not only crossed, they jumped through those hurdles and came out stronger than ever.Squeeeee This book was so so so good and it was an absolute joy for me to read this and to see the whole Quantum family come together was nothing short of bliss for me I didn t think that I would actually love Hayden Like yes Love no But I did Gosh did I love his character so much It was just do amazing to see Hayden transform Sure, that tough guy still exists but by the end of the book he had a certain warmth to him that had previously lacked.Ms Force did such an amazing job with this book and to make me love a character that I had previously hated is nothing short of amazing.You can follow me on The Story Begun In The Initial Quantum Trilogy Picks Up On Oscar Night After Academy Award Winning Director Hayden Roth Kisses The Woman He Desires Above All

anterior aviso, esta autora le gusta cerrar los libros dej ndote la boca abierta y pensando WTF Voy a hacer una escritura con las mayores tonter as que se escriban a cerca de un libro, solo aviso.ODIO LOS LIBROS DE BDSM, QUE SOLO TRATAN DE DOLOR, DOLOR, SIN INDAGAR M S EN LO QUE SE BASA BDSM Donde la autora se justifica mediante el pasado de su protagonista masculino, para justificar esa inclinaci n o gusto sexual hac a BDSM NO, NO NO Han hecho un flaco favor a aquellas personas que tienen un estilo de vida sexual diferente a lo convencional me encanta que en este libro y en los dem s, la autora siempre hace referencia al Lifestyle Co o, yo no lo practico, pero no quiere decir que me parezca malo, sino otra opci n, adem s ser a una hip crita si dijera que no me interesa o no llama la atenci n , cuando leo libro de er tica basada en BDSM Ahora sobre la historia de verdad es de la m s bonita, m s rom ntica, m s enternecedora, m s pasional, m s caliente que el d a de San Juan, que mejor describe el mundo BDSM desde el punto de vista de alguien que lo vive aqu no tengo mucha idea sobre ello, pero me ha parecido cre ble, y se ve que la autora se ha documentado que he podido leer en mucho, mucho tiempo He tenido el coraz n en un pu o durante todo libro Me ha sorprendido los dos personajes de una manera absolutamente maravillosa Durante el libro anterior, ya vamos viendo pinceladas sobre lo que sienten Addie y Hayden, pero ni llega al 1% de lo que sienten en realidad.Addie lucha si, no encuentro otra palabra mejor que esta para demostrarle a Hayden que ella es su otra mitad, que puede darle todo y m s para poder estar juntos Siempre ha tenido una confianza total del amor que siente y del amor tan profundo que siente Hayden hac a ella Claro que ha habido peque os momentos de duda a la hora de afrontar lifestyle de Hayden, pero lo resuelve con una solvencia total.Y sobre Hayden, mejor me controlo, ya que podr a bloquear GD hablando solamente de l Tengo claro que de ahora en adelante l pasar a mi grupo de inigualables, junto con Derek Craven, Lord Belceb ,Wulfric Bedwyn y otros pocos m s, donde les tengo guardado en mi coraz n y en cualquier parte de mi cuerpo que quieran poseer Que personaje m s maravilloso, complejo y completo Es puro amor, si, si, AMOR del bueno Como ama a Addie, que pasi n, que necesidad, que temor ha hacerla da o, a no merecerla De verdad, ha soltado cada frase, que mis enaguas volatilizaban en cero coma.Lo volver a leer si, si, si, si,. I thought I would like this story however, I did not Hayden was an ass in the previous books and he was in this one too as well as wishy washy which bugged me to no end Yes, I realize he had a fucked up childhood but jeez, get a set of balls And Addie Hmmm, for such an organized, together person, she was just too stupid Really, you re so desperate for Hayden that you will do anything, endure anything, just to have him Honey, he is not worth it and your future does not bode well that he won t self destruct and take you with him.Hayden claims to be a Dom but view spoiler he starts crying, pounding on the window and begging when he sees Addie just talking to another Dom Really Crying and begging Not only does he need his Dom card taken away but his man card hide spoiler Hayden has been in love with Addie for years His best friend Flynn is aware of this and he understands why Hayden won t pursue her He s a Sexual Dominant, his tastes are particular and he knows that Addie is too good for him Too pure to ever enter into the lifestyle If that s not enough growing up in his family and seeing what his parents did to each other he has had no first hand knowledge of love Apart from seeing what his friends parents had that is All Hayden knows is that love is not for him It s toxic and it never ends well He ll love Addie from afar but that s all he s willing to risk.Addie has secretly crushed on Hayden, that as she got older turned to into love But he won t see her that way When the chance arises for her to take the next step she does so Hayden has no clue what s about to hit him He knows he shouldn t but he can t say no An incredible night that blows them both away with the intensity of the chemistry between them But when Addie awakes alone and Hayden does not respond to her calls she is beyond hurt, shes angry.Hayden knows he crossed the line with Addie But he vows to not do so again But when his secret comes out and Addie demands the chance to experience it with him he flat out says no Addie does not let this deter her If he won t show her she will find someone who will When he finds out what Addie is doing and he may be to late, we see a change in Hayden His near break down at the thought of Addie being possibly hurt trying to be what he wants he knows then that he will be the one The one to bring her into the lifestyle and show her what it means to be a submissive.With their relationship moving forward, Hayden approaches Addie s father Simon He wants his blessing But he s in for a surprise Simon does not want Hayden for Addie He knows or he s heard the rumors about Hayden and that s the last thing he wants for his daughter.Addie won t let Hayden go, no matter what her father says He s it for her.I loved watching these friends become lovers It was an erotically charged read that delves into the BDSM lifestyle Gives you an understanding of what it is all about The true meaning of the lifestyle and what it entails. 4.5 stars 4 starsThis is the fourth book in the Quantum series, and could probably be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading it in order to fully appreciate the characters and their relationships While the first three books focussed on one couple Flynn and Natalie this book brings us the story Flynn s Director and best friend, Hayden, and his dedicated Assistant, Addison Addie , and OMG, it s a fantastic love story Functional yet still slightly angsty, it s the story of two people who are desperately in love and HIGHLY sexed , who want to be together but live very different lives It s about discovering who they are, what they want, and finding that common ground, and I loved it At the end of the last book, it was Oscar night and in his moment of triumph, Hayden grabbed Addie for a celebratory kiss that was seen around the world It was an unexpected kiss, but one that meant so much as it was the first time either of them had shown any sign of the attraction that they have had for each other for a long time, but had never acted on It s also the kiss that changes everything because afterwards, there is no hiding for either of themI didn t want it until I had it, and now it s all I want She is all I wantThe chemistry between these two is sizzling Their physical attraction is intense, and there is lots and lots of hot and steamy sexy time, but than that, they have a deeper connection They love each other, and they know it without a doubt, but while Addie is thrilled that Hayden finally seems to be returning her feelings, he is holding back from her, and he won t tell her why Hayden has a secret he is a sexual Dominant, and is heavily into kink though nothing too terrifying , and he doesn t want to expose her to that He craves control but knows that she isn t submissive, and he believes that there s no way a relationship between them can work So there is quite a bit of back and forth, with Hayden pushing Addie away only to be stripping her naked again at the next available opportunity but you can see that underneath it all the two of them are trying desperately to make it work, so it didn t become too annoying We see Hayden s confusion as he is torn between his love for Addie and the needs of what he considers to be his darker side He wants to protect her from being hurt, and it s easy to see that he genuinely has her wellbeing at the forefront of his mind And deep down, he s afraid that letting her into his world, and allowing her to see his darkest desires will change her feelings for him I love her, I want her, I need her I can t have her. But there is so much to Addie than he ever knew She is an absolute spitfire She loves Hayden fiercely, and she goes after her man with single minded determination, not allowing him to push her away When she learns his secret, she is shocked, but she takes it in her stride and is open to idea of exploring it with him and she does it without coming across as a doormat, WIN She is strong and confident, she knows what she wants, and she fights for it And when Hayden refuses to include her in his world, she takes it upon herself to research the lifestyle, learning the physical and emotional aspects of and what would be expected of her I love her tenacity, and how she doesn t let Hayden walk all over her She s a great heroine who doesn t hold anything back, and I liked her a lotYou re the only one I want You re the only one I ve ever felt this way about, and I ll never feel this way about anyone but youIf you re concerned about the BDSM, don t be Yes, there s a heavy emphasis on the lifestyle, but I thought it was addressed and explained sensibly and respectfully, without sensationalising it It s definitely something that the characters explore, but it s in the bedroom only and most of the sex in the book takes place before they enter into that sort of relationship and it s actually pretty tame hard and rough and very descriptive Hayden seems to have supernatural stamina , but definitely vanilla There are a few Dom sub scenes, and some kink some featuring Hayden and Addie, and other stuff that Addie sees while she s exploring , but even those are fairly tame compared to other books that I have read, and I thought it was handled really well.But the focus is definitely on the romance, and this is such a gorgeous love story Hayden and Addie are both so sure about their feelings, open about the fact that they want each other badly, and desperate to be together, but unable to get on the same page about how, or whether, it can actually happen The feelings are intense and the sex is off the charts hot, and I really enjoyed their journey as they discover what they truly want and find a way forward togetherI never should have doubted that you were exactly what I want and need I should have trusted my heart because it kept leading me to youThe rest of the Quantum group are all a part of the story especially Flynn and Natalie and I loved getting the chance to catch up with them, as well as get a hint at possible future books please I really enjoyed this book Hayden and Addie s love story is beautifully written engaging and exciting with a great mix of drama, romance, sex, and some funny lighter moments I listened to it as an audiobook and loved the dual narration, and I thought the narrators did a great job at telling this bringing these characters to life.A great read 4 stars. Mixed review and a big ole rant ahead Did I like the romance between the intense, broody Hayden and devoted Addie, you bet Did I care for the BDSM aspect Hell NO So therein lays the conflict I m so tired of BDSM stories, had my fill with Fifty and am so tired of all my favorite authors deciding to jump on this bandwagon It pisses me off to no end But I also dearly love this author I thought surely sensible Addie wouldn t be as big of a pushover at Natalie in the last 2 bks But sadly NO, that s not the case I promised myself no 1 clicking this series, so this is my bad But now I know I just can t go forward with this series unless of course Marlow gets to do a beat down on some guy in the name of you only want it because I do and it s the best painful awesome sex of your life, and you ll do it because you want me to love you What a rationalization, right I thanked the heavens when Hayden told Addie he wasn t into blood, urine excrement and animals Praise the book gods Reading another story where another woman is afraid, bruised and can t walk straight from the pain of the night before and is in too much pain to go at it again, but does so anyway because her guy wants it is utter bullshit in my opinion I m shaking my head in disgust at Addie while she s cringing and limping around and can t sit Oh but its consensual right Sure, but is this not a therapist dream Sounds like a big mindfuck to me The idea of BDSM never occurs to these women until the guy they love wants it and then of course they ll bend over whatever spanking bench is handy to take all the Dom can dish out because she wants him to love her Biggest crock of horse shit ever Don t so many women take enough unnecessary abuse from men that women authors have to dress it up as fun Baffled by the bullshit of it all Or maybe I just need a book with this theme where the author does a better job of making it all believable.
