Underneath the movie star's good looks is a man battling with the demons of his past. No one knows the real Nathaniel, they only see the pin-up, the man he pretends to be. Until one night he is forced to rely on Katie Field, an ordinary young woman from a very different world to Nathaniel's. She may be starstuck but she isn't blinded by the bright lights of fame. Can Nathaniel trust her enough to reveal the man behind the mask? Let the seduction begin...
Tortured Rake was a book that took me totally by surprise. I curled up with it, fully expecting a sexy, fun, adventurous ride. Colour me surprised when underneath its glossy and glib exterior, was a vulnerable hero with a traumatic past.
Nathaniel Wolfe is a name everyone has heard. Legendary actor, sexiest man alive and ridiculously wealthy, Nathaniel is used to being in the spotlight. Little Katie Fields, relative unknown costume designer, is not. But all that is about to change. Nathaniel needs Katie’s help. When she aides him, Katie is thrown headfirst into Nathaniel’s decadent world where nothing is as it seems…and nothing is real.
Katie wants nothing more than to meet Nathaniel Wolfe – the real Nathaniel Wolfe, that is. Not the
version the rest of the world is familiar with. But Nathaniel isn’t one to let
his guard down or let people get close to him. Good thing for Katie, she has
ways of talking people around.
I adored Katie and Nathaniel’s story. It was a pleasure to watch them both grow as characters, how they complimented each other and how their feelings progressed. Nathaniel is the perfect leading man for any book – strong, sexy and just a little bit broken. And Katie is just the woman to fix him. The book was extremely well written and held my attention effortlessly throughout.
I definitely look forward to more in this series.
