Chloe just got out of a bad relationship and thinks that some distance from her ex will help. So she agrees to work on Gabe’s farm as his veterinarian.
Gabe has crushed/lusted/loved Chloe for a long time. He thinks she is off limits as the sister of his best friend. But after 1 kiss, all bets are off. He is not trying to break up her relationship, but after finding out she is unattached, he will do his best to help her to see that he is the man for her.
This is another story in the Billionaire Obsession series by J.S Scott. I think that as this series continues, I have been able to see the progress in her writing style and plot themes. She has been able to keep the stories from becoming stale. It is not like I am reading the same plot over and over. There are times where elements are the same, but it is not so repetitive that I am bored with the story.
In this story, the heaviest theme was the abuse of Chloe’s previous relationship. It was at times brutal to read but it made me want Chloe to find happiness even more. Plus, it goes to show that money and a good family cannot always shield a person from being in an abusive relationship.
I sympathized with Chloe because many of the reasons why she stayed parallel to real life victims of abuse. I could understand how Chloe’s family felt once they found out what had been happening because they did not see the signs. The Coulter family is so tight-knit, that I could imagine the emotional reactions when they realized they were unable to shield their sister from being in a painful relationship.
But this book is not all tears and sadness, because Gabe was more than willing to be the man and protector that Chloe needed in her life. With that, Gabe secured his spot on my Billionaire book boyfriend list.
