Refuse to compromise.

Hudson Winters is in control of every aspect of his world. From his earliest
memories, he's been driven to succeed. Starting from nothing, he built an
empire based on opportunity and intimidation.

Personally, professionally, and sexually - he ensures the reins are always
in his hands.

He never counted on a woman like Gabriella Hernandez.

From the moment she steps into his building, she proceeds to shake up his
entire existence. Her very presence causes him to question everything about
himself, his relationships, and his future.

This story features characters readers fell in love with in "The Barter
System" and gives you a chance to sit down and catch up. Prepare to be
twisted up and knocked around a bit.  Another hot, emotional read from
Always the Good Girl, Shayne McClendon.

NOTE: This story contains explicit sexual scenes and language and is
intended for mature audiences only. Do not read this novel if intense sexual
situations offend you.


Gabriella Hernandez had a long distance romance with a guy named Hudson.  He always told her that she could go and live with him in NYC so she packed up one day and decided to move from Washington to NYC to be close to him and start a new life.  Once she arrives and comes head-to-head with Hudson, she soon finds out that he's not the Hudson she was in love with and who loved her and asked her to move to NYC to be with.
Gabriella feels like her life has taken a turn for the worse when she finds out that Hudson is not who she thought.  She has to figure out now how she's going to survive and where she's going to live since she really has nowhere to go, but she knows for sure that she doesn't want to return home and doesn't want her family to see her as a failure.  She quickly finds a job in Hudson's building cleaning and is looking forward to rebuilding her life.  She is a free-spirit and doesn't let it get to her that she was duped.  

Natalia is Hudson's best friend and lover.  Whenever Hudson is not in a relationship, he and Natalia are lovers and she does everything he wants and I think that's why they get along so well.  Hudson has always been in love with Natalia, except he doesn't see it.  

Natalia brings out a side of Gabriella she never knew she had. Somehow, Brie helps Hudson and Natalia come closer together. He likes complete control and Natalia loves giving him complete control.  Gabriella teaches Hudson how to really feel love.  She has taught him how to love Natalia.

Even though Gabriella was not the person for Hudson, she will get her own story.

The sex scenes were pretty hot, I do have to say.  Overall, I enjoyed this book.
