She wants a baby. He wants her. Simple enough, right?
Ellie Godfrey has kissed her share of frogs. So many, in fact, that she fears she won’t recognize her prince if and when he finally comes along. Tired of waiting for THE ONE, Ellie decides to have a baby on her own before it’s too late.
When Jasper Autry hears about Ellie’s plan, what else can he do but step in and offer to “contribute” to her project. Does that make him an opportunist? Whatever. He wants the perpetually out-of-reach Ellie Godfrey, and when he sees his chance, he takes it. That she’s the sister of his business partner and close friend Flynn gives him pause, but it doesn’t stop him from having what he wants.
As Jasper and Ellie embark upon their secret “project,” he makes it clear that for as long as they’re together, he’s in charge—in the bedroom anyway. After the hottest sex of her life, Ellie realizes she’s made a deal with the devil himself.
Warning: If you hate foul-mouthed heroes who like it a little rough and dirty, this might not be the book for you…Contains hot and sexy BDSM scenes among other things that might not appeal to the faint of heart. Enter at your own risk and enjoy!
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
Ravenous was such a page-turner! Not having ready any other works by the author before, I was impressed with the writing and storyline of the book.
At the beginning of the story we get to meet Ellie Godfrey, not only is she wealthy, but she is also part of the Hollywood's elite. Her family has been in the entertainment industry for so long that she has also started to work in her brother's company. Yet living the live of luxury is not enough for her, she wants something that all her other siblings have, a family. But when you have a family that is famous, people tend to use her to get to her other family members. So Ellie makes a radical decision, to have a child of her own with or without a father figure in her child's life. It is then at a friend's wedding that she confides on one of her best friends that she wants a baby that Jasper Autry offers his help, by doing things the old fashioned way. Now that things got serious, it's up to Ellie to keep her heart intact if she wants to have a child in the end.
When Jasper Autry hears about Ellie's plan, he immediately offers to help her. After knowing each other for so long, he is finally getting the girl that he has liked, but can't completely have. His purpose is to give her a baby without dragging her to his most personal live. A personal live that he has been trying to ignore, but will eventually catch up to him if he is not careful. But as the two of them start to spend more time with each other, the more chemistry seems to evolved around them. It is then that when they least expect it Jasper's past comes back and ready to ruin what they have.
I absolutely loved reading this book, it was filled with steamy and romantic scenes between the characters that had me reading until the very end. It's evident from the start that they both have chemistry, but as they begin to tell each other their deepest secrets things start to change. Ellie is such a strong character in the book, she knows what she wants and is willing to get it no matter what. Her struggle to find the one hasn't worked out for her, but her desire to have a family is much stronger that she is willing to have a baby without a husband. On the other hand, Jasper is smart and good looking. He is also kind and is willing to help Ellie and give her what she wants, without anything in return. Through ups and downs, both Ellie and Jasper will have to decide if they have a shot at relationship or not. Overall, Ravenous was such a great book, the ending was sweet and very fitting of the story. I would highly recommend it. :)
