Alyssa Devereaux, Luke Traverson
He can’t control his desire.

Luc Traverson’s entire future is planned out—but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa Devereaux . She’s a former exotic dancer turned strip club owner and restaurateur. Recently, Alyssa and Luc shared one night of wild abandon that left Luc terrified by his loss of self-control—and Alyssa desperate for more.

And that’s just the way she wants it.

Fulfilling a promise, Luc is the guest chef for Alyssa’s restaurant debut. The sight of her makes Luc wild, so how can he survive a week without letting loose and ravaging her—especially when she’s begging for it? Luc’s desire for her explodes when he realizes he isn’t the only man desperate to have her. But one of the others is deadly. And that’s not the end of Alyssa’s secrets…which are as dark and mysterious and enticing as her fantasies.

Both characters I did not care for. Luke was ass the bulk of the book always thinking Alyssa was sleeping with all of Louisiana. And Alyssa seemed to be doing everything possible to prove him right. She was constantly parading around half dressed or naked in front of Tyler, her bouncer, or letting him touch and kiss on her. Luke even found her asleep in Tyler's bed, but she wonders why Luke thinks she's cheating.

Alyssa and Luke's entire relationships seem to be built on lies and manipulation. They never really opened up and truly talked to each other. And the only time they really got along was in bed together.

Tyler was a welcome distraction from Luke and Alyssa's drama. He, Hunter, and the characters from the previous two books were pretty much the saving grace for this one. The only thing that kept me from giving up on this book completely, was the fact that is part of a series that I'd like to continue. Hopefully the next additions will be better.
