First Thing I See 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers
First Thing I See  
 4 of 5 stars false 
Hope York transformed her boring self into flawless beauty on the outside. But inside, she never changed. Kennedy Jenner was a successful, wealthy and jaw dropping handsome man that could have whatever he wanted, on his own terms. And he wanted Hope. But would he still want her after he saw her for who she really was, instead of what she carefully planned for everyone to see? And will his own secret past stand in his way for getting what he really wants? Sex, secrets and dominance, with a little love story in between


****I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review****
Hope has recently moved to New York and started her dream job as an event planner at a five start hotel. On her first day of training she meets Kennedy Jenner, a wealthy business man who is staying at the hotel. They start an intense relationship complicated by her insecurities, his past demons and the thousand miles in between Chicago and New York. I was a little bit annoyed at the female main character when the book first started; she seemed weak and self conscious. It took me awhile to warm up to Hope and once I got the background story I respected her a lot more. Kennedy was a rich, gorgeous man with a damaged past and an overprotective streak that made me want to slap him at times. The problems that the two of them had were realistic and not over the top. The cheerleader best friend was a good influence on Hope with her encouragement and understanding. Hopes dad was endearing and I felt bad for him because the step-mom was a raging bitch with a side helping of slut. The Jenner family was supportive of Kennedy and his niece was beyond adorable. The love scenes were scorching hot and I really liked that their whole relationship was not based on sex. The couple seemed to share a genuine connection that kept them together when other people would have given up. I liked the book, but I really wish it had an epilogue.
