Will their wedding night be a one-night stand or a merger for keeps?

Global real estate mogul, Cade Sloan should've listened to his own advice: trust no one, and never a woman…especially not his 24 hour bride gone AWOL with his millions. Nina, mousy secretary turned sexy vixen, will repay every penny with interest…

When Cade gears up for a takeover, there's sweet hell to pay. Nina owes her husband a wedding night and he’s hell bent on collecting… his way, his time, his pleasure.

This is a very fast paced, incredibly short book, with a whirlwind of a book, with the pace never letting up. But with that pace, it feels as though you are getting lots of half thoughts. 

All the ideas present in the book were good and if they were fully developed and the book had been about twice as long, this would have easily been a five star read, as there is so much potential in the story. However the way it has been written, left me confused for most of the story, and the only thing I know for sure is I did not like Cade Sloan. 

I would go as far as to say I hated the way Cade Sloan treated Nina, and although I get that intially he was forced into a marriage, the way he makes Nina repay her debt, moved him even further down my list of leading men that I like. 

There was a lot of locations featured briefly in this book, and I liked the setting of Cyprus for a fair amount of the story, but even though you have characters jet setting around the world, you never really get a feel for any destination, which seems a shame, even more detail about the hotels would be been good. 

I barely got a feel for Nina's character at all. She seemed at all times very reluctant to go along with anything Cade said, but I didn't fully understand her other motivations apart from the obvious of money. 

Overall I found I did like this book, but thought it could have been a lot better than it was.
