Katherine Newheart is engaged to her dull fianc√©, Matthew O'Connor, who's just been made a partner in Katherine’s father’s law firm. 
When she meets The Boy alias Benjamin Riley, everything changes. Katherine tries to hold back, keep her usual control but it fails because Benjamin is everything that Matthew isn’t and that makes him everything that Katherine needs and wants. He awakes her in more ways than one. Katherine ends all tangled up in a steamy hot and passionate love affair with Benjamin. She tries to break if off with Matthew but all of a sudden, he turns into a complete monster and starts being violent towards her, threatening her about some fatal information he has about her family. Katherine can’t stay away from Benjamin, even though she’s perfectly aware that she might jeopardize it all but her love for Benjamin is strong, stronger than her own control. But how strong is Katherine's control when it all comes down to it? Is the passionate love between her and Benjamin enough for her to start doing things just for her or will she end up in her controlling way again?

* Review * 
What’s a woman to do when she finds herself with car trouble in the wrong part of town?  Accept  help from the steely blue eyed “boy” who comes to her rescue?  Little does she know that he will rescue her in more  ways than one.

The story was a little slow for me at first.  I thought the author got a little too hung up on describing Katherine’s designer clothing and products.  That being said once I got a little further into the story it took off and I couldn’t wait to see what was coming next.

Katherine she is no nonsense business woman running her own PR firm.  She is engaged to her boyfriend of 5 yrs, Matthew.  Matthew  is a lawyer in her father’s law firm.   They are comfortable with one another.  She expects no more than the daily mundane ins and outs of their relationship.

Upon meeting Benjamin we find out that he is not just a “boy” but more of a man than Katherine ever expected to want and need.  Benjamin has stirred feelings in her that she didn’t even know she was capable of.   His dark and unsettled past has captivated Katherine along with his boyish charms.

I was surprised by some of the twists and turns that the author threw at us.  The biggest was the change in Matthew.  I was unaffected by Matthew until the change.  Then he did nothing but make my blood boil.  I was hoping Katherine would get to the bottom of things and send him packing before it was too late.

I enjoyed the interactions between Benjamin and Katherine.  He really took her outside of herself and let us see a softer side of Katherine.  They were worlds apart on the social scale but were emotional tied to one another. 

“Babe, what do I have to do to make you see that we belong together, not because we have to but because we want to and nee d to.” 
~ Benjamin

I was pulling for Katherine and Benjamin to find a way to overcome their obstacles but they just kept coming.  The story left me with tears in my eyes and a need for more.  I will definitely be looking forward to the sequel .

 *About the Author *
Hello, as you probably know already, my name is Maja. I’m 28 years old and live in Denmark.
I want to share a little bit about myself and my private life because I want to stay true to who I am and that’s being open and honest.
I’m a single mom to my precious son, Tobias. He’s my blessing and teacher in life – that may sound a little weird but he’s shown me so much, thanks to him, I’ve learned how to fight and to keep on fighting. You see, my son is very sick from some unknown illness and doctors have given up but I haven’t and I will never ever give up.
Last year I read the Fifty Shades book series and loved it, obviously who didn’t?! Anyways, it got me thinking that maybe I should start writing again and let my imagination run wild. I started writing on another story, actually, from a man’s perspective but then Eye Telling came creeping in my mind and I started writing on that instead because I wanted to create a story where the lead male character isn’t a rich and career-minded man in an expensive designer suit but instead a regular but HOT guy who’s not as fortunate. He has a youthful clothing style and tattoos. He had a hell of a childhood but his ‘demons’ isn’t standing in the way of him wanting to be with Katherine (the lead female character).
In this story Katherine is the one who can’t seem to commit.
I never thought it would develop into a full length novel, but somehow it did and I’m so proud to have published my very own romance. It’s been a sweet escape for a sometimes rough everyday life and I can’t wait to share more of my stories.
