Is pleasure addictive? If one person lines up perfectly with all your deepest desires, all your kinkiest kinks, would you choose him, in spite of how bad he might be?
My Stranger is about a woman who is sucked into the orbit of a Bad Boy Alpha Male, but like all bad boys, there is a deep, dark streak of the romantic in him. But her stranger wields a darkness that goes beyond normal behavior. Confidence hints at aggression, intelligence turns to manipulation, care is hidden within control, and persistence slides into obsession.
And like all of us who fall for the bad boys, AJ can’t help but wonder if she’s the woman who will save him from himself, if she’s the woman who can inspire a change in his behavior.
“You’re not like any other woman I’ve ever known.” His rusty voice turned downright corroded. “Maybe you can’t be soiled. Maybe your light can’t be dimmed. Maybe you would have been my fucking salvation, if you weren’t trying so goddamned hard to keep your distance.”
Would you fall for that line? There’s no shame if your answer is yes. Lots of us have fallen for lines like that. It’s that damned romantic streak, reeling us in, tying us in knots. The possibility of winning the ultimate prize, dangling before us like a fat, juicy carrot.
AJ’s girlfriend wants her to have one last fling with a man to get it all out of her system before they take their relationship to the next level. So when AJ feels a man’s strong arms wrap around her in the dark, and hears her girlfriend’s pet name for her fall from his lips, she willingly submits to her stranger—and only finds out how dangerous he is after it’s too late to stop her addiction to the pleasure he gives her.
A dark erotic tale of lust and lies, and a truth more dangerous than the ecstasy she discovers in her stranger’s bed.

For the first time in her life, AJ is ready to commit to one person, but her girlfriend isn’t certain that AJ can be faithful and suggests one last fling to make sure she’s ready for a future together.

I recevied this book from Once Upon An Alpha, in exchange for my review.
Don't you just love it when a book totally throws you for a loop, and does not go the way you thought it would?? This one, right here.
AJ is thinking of asking her girlfriend Sam to move in with her, but Sam knocks AJ for six by suggesting she have one last fling, one last affair, before they move in. One last fling with a man, so that AJ can be sure Sam will be enough. Next thing, AJ is blindfolded, tied to a bed and having the best sex she ever had, all, she thinks, thanks to Sam.
I could not remember the tags this book for review came with, and thought, since its about AJ and Sam, it was a F/F book, but there are no scenes between them here, they just talk about it. I wasn't disappointed by that, it was just the way I thought it was gonna go. But it totally goes the opposite way, and AJ has a week of her last fling, with a man, that she thinks is from Sam. BUT all is not as it seems, and when AJ is found, her world is left in pieces. Especially when they discover who is behind it all and his past history.
What surprised me, totally blew me away, was the ending. I soooooooooooooooo did not see that coming! As that unfolded, I knew, I absolutely knew AJ would give him what he asked for, rather than deny him, for she knew what he was and is capable of. LOVED IT!!
AJ gets a say in the first person, and Sam's comes across as third person, different, yes, I'm seeing it more though and I like it! I just wish HE had been given a voice. I'm a bit weird like that, wanting to know what this man was thinking about when he took AJ, when he did what he did to her, to those others. And what her thought when AJ gave him what he asked for. This is why it doesn't get the full five stars.
Its only short, just over an hour. I'm rather glad I choose to read it in the tub, for my kindle may well have gone flying, again (twice in one week is just a bit too much, don't you think!) and I wasn't able to fling it across the bathroom!
This is the first I've read of Lola White, and I look forward to more, especially if they twist like this one did at the end.
