  • Anything He Wants
Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right?

Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need.  As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender.  But even as enemies seek deadly revenge against him, she’ll discover that her greatest threat is falling for her fiercely guarded boss…and yielding to her own darkest needs.

             I came across Anything He Wants through Netgalley, and just by reading the summary I was hooked. This book is like a collection of a 5 back-to-back short stories, and while reading it, I realized that I had already read the first two parts previously, and loved it, so it was no brainer that I thoroughly enjoyed the rest this book. It starts of with a subtle beginning with just two strangers having heated sex, and there was no character depth or meaningful interactions whatsoever, but as you go on with the story, the characters are much more developed, and you can see them as a couple instead of just two people screwing each other. Fair warming, this book is heavy on domination-submission aspect, so if you are not into that, then don't read it. I really like that part, it was done exceptionally well, and everything flowed naturally not forced, which is how it should be.

            Lucy is the ever-so-popular damsel in distress with mountains of trouble surrounding her. No house, no partner, no friends, okay job, but the one thing that lightens up her day every morning is the stranger in the elevator. Obviously, the stranger has to be the CEO of the company she works for, Jeremiah Hamilton. First of all, I love his name..Jeremiah.. so very dreamy. He alpha with a big A, and probably the most dominating men I have read after Christian Grey. I really like him. He was very silent, and mysterious in the beginning which is totally my type (*wink*). He does open up a teeny bit by the end, but still his demons (whatever they are) are yet to be released. My favorite part was when he interviewed Lucy for the position. It'll be extremely weird if it happened in reality but in fantasy it was HOT.

             The story continues very smoothly until the end 20% or so, where all the hell breaks loose. There were so many things happening at the same time, it was like watching the climax part of a very well directed suspense thriller. Every bad person was revealing their secrets, and it got very intense; I enjoyed the last part, but I think the author overdid it with the ending stunt. I just wanted everything to tie neatly, and be done with all the drama, but now I have to wait for a sequel to get my happy ending. I felt bad for Lucy, that girl really needed a break after what she went through. So the conclusion is that I very much liked Anything He Wants by Sara Fawkes, and I'm really looking forward to read more about Jeremiah. This book is one of the don't-overthink-and-go-with-the-flow kind of read, so just enjoy the fun ride, and don't question too much.
