One night. One contract. One kiss, and Victor Newcomb will never be the same.
By age 24, Vic has accomplished more than most men achieve in a lifetime. Since childhood he’s tried to be the perfect son, the perfect executive, the perfect heir—and as next in line for the throne of his father’s multibillion dollar textile empire, he’s made his life entirely about discipline and control.
But he doesn’t know what discipline truly means—until he meets Amani Idrissi.
University student. Part-time masseuse. Cello virtuoso. The serene, reserved Moroccan American femme fascinates Vic with his cool allure, changing everything Vic thought he knew about power, about control, about his own sexuality. Yet when cello lessons turn into a business deal of an entirely different nature, Vic quickly realizes he’ll pay anything for the chance to see Amani again. To submit to his touch.
To discover the complete and utter freedom in giving up control.
But the deeper Vic falls headlong into love, the more he realizes he doesn’t know Amani at all. Secretive, withdrawn, Amani seems determined to keep their relationship strictly business. Even if Vic can see the quiet hurts, the old wounds hiding behind those dark, enticing eyes…
How far will he have to go, to win the love of his cocky cellist?
The seductive way that Cole McCade writes is just so captivating. I’m overly impressed with his ability to describe objects and make them dance off the page.
His Cocky Cellist is the second book in the series, but I honestly think it could be read as a stand alone. There was only one section in the beginning that mentioned Ash and and Brand and it wasn’t detrimental to the story.
I’m not going to regurgitate the blurb here because while the story was entertaining on many fronts, its the writing that is so exquisite. The words just stand out and create such a beautiful masterpiece. It’s just awesome. There was a fair amount of kink in this, but it was so well done and written in a way that it wasn’t distasteful in the slightest.
When the story started, I didn’t think I’d like Amani. He seemed like a snotty twenty year old who was tired of being taken advantage of, thereby not giving Vic the benefit of the doubt, in any way. The story seemed to mimic Pretty Woman in some aspects, which was fine, but then I laughed when Vic mentioned ‘going all Richard Gere’.
The more I got into it, the more I loved both Amani and Vic and after some of the past was unraveled, it became obvious how selfless Vic was and how determined he was to try to make everyone happy. I really enjoyed getting to know Vic’s character and would have loved a longer story, but was thrilled with the HEA.
Overall, this was a charming addition to the Undue Arrogance series and if you enjoyed the first book, you’ll love this one.
