3 rigid stars + 2 boho stars + 1 whaaaa? stars = 5 fabulous bright ones for BENTLEY!

Bentley Ridge has worked his ass off to make his company BAM a success, and he has little time for fun. Often described as uptight and boring by women he dates, he lets it slide off his shoulders. Until Emmy comes in and blows in his world to pieces. A bohemian free spirit finishing her college degree, Emmy is 150% NOT Bentley's type, but something about her makes him desperate for more. But Bentley's being stalked by someone wanting to ruin the mixed use development he's dreamt of. Breaking things off with Emmy is not an option…will he be able to keep her safe without stifling her freedom?

While Ms. Moreland is a new author for me, BENTLEY is definitely not the last I'll read by her! This first book in the Vested Interest series was sexy, serious and suspenseful, three descriptions that always make me anxious to dig into a book. Bentley and Emmy were both complicated characters, with depth you don't often see in an super sexy romance story. They were so different, but something drew them together, and I think readers are better for it. And when the sex started? WHEW! They were absolutely explosive! Emmy loosened Bentley up, while he gave her the security she craved. I really cannot wait for Aidan and Cami's story next!!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; mixed condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; violence and murder.
