HOOOOOTTT!!!! That word describes this entire book. Welcome to the Cameo Hotel was a whirlwind book that kept me interested from the very beginning. If I had to describe this book, I would say this book is all about forbidden fruit being the juiciest. The question that remains is will the consequences be worth it?
The plot of this book was different than most I read. The blurb, while it does reflect the book, I don't feel it really gives you a good idea of what you are about to read. With that being said, the book is amazing and I enjoyed it, but I feel a better description is needed there.
The characters in this book are amazing. First off, Emma is what an independent female looks like. She is strong, independent, takes no bull, but also remains positive and professional when it calls for it. I loved how she remained positive, yet still stood up for herself. So commendable. Then you have Gavin. He is exactly what I would expect. He is strong, powerful, demanding, and alpha to the core. What I didn't expect was the other side to him. He is all of that, but there is also more to him than meets the eye.
The heat in this story is off the chain. There is a bit of taboo when you think about the hotel employee and guest aspect of this story. Then the way the author created a brilliant build up? Yeah the heat had to be off the charts. It was the only way to fit the rest of the book. Get yourself a fan because it is HOTTTT!
The writing style of this book is good. The pace of the story is steady. The book is technically a dual point of view, but before you get your hopes up let me explain. Most of the story is told from Emma's point of view. I would say at least eighty percent. The other is told from Gavin. While this did not take away from the story for me, I felt the need to explain that for others.
In conclusion, I really enjoyed this book. The characters are dynamic. The plot is fresh and entertaining. I enjoyed the ending and felt satisfied with the way the story turned out. It was a great story.
Writing Style: 5/5
The walk to his room was second nature—a quick elevator ride, take a right and go down four doors. A swift rap of my knuckles against the door, and then I waited for the overwhelming force that was Gavin Grayson.
“Hello,” he said as he opened the door. No scowl to greet me, no anger. There was a small upturn of his lips, a little more prominent on one side than the other.
A shudder rolled through me, my heart doing double time again.
“What’s wrong tonight?” I asked as I stepped into his room.
“You’re not in it,” he said.
My stomach flipped, and I felt heat flood my cheeks. How was it that in a few short weeks he had taken over my heart? I wanted, yearned for his praise. To get caught up in his eyes, loving the way they would soften and grow heavy as he looked at me.
I drew in a stuttered breath as he stepped forward and towered over me. In heels I was a decent five-feet-eight, but Gavin had to be a few inches over six feet tall—a commanding presence as he loomed over me.
“Emma?” He was so close I could feel his breath on my skin.
“I want you.”
The muscles in my thighs clenched and I stretched up toward him, almost begging him closer. “Yes.”
“To stop looking at me like that.”
The haze he covered me with suddenly cleared as I looked up at him. My stomach dropped as I tried to comprehend what happened. “What?”
He stepped away, his back turned to me. All of his muscles were tense, his fists clenching at his side.
“If that’s what you want, what do you need?” I asked.
His head fell back. “I thought I’d made that obvious.”
“I’m not sure,” I replied, more than a little surprised at how breathy my voice was. “I’ve gotten a lot of mixed messages.”
He moved back toward me. “You have me conflicted.”
“Because the last time I wanted a woman anywhere near this much, things didn’t end so well,” he began. “Because you’re young. Because you work for the hotel and not for me.” He reached out, his fingers caressing my clavicle before slipping up my neck. “Because nothing has ever seemed as taboo as your lips.”
My knees felt weak as he moved closer, my nipples tightening. There was no resistance as I waited with bated breath.
His lips were soft against mine, supple. A taste, a sample. It was perfect, and an electric pulse moved between us. Every ounce of want and desire sat in the small gap between our lips.
A squeak left me when he suddenly pressed forward, kissing deeper and more intensely than before. His free arm wound around my waist, pulling me closer to him while his mouth opened. I followed suit, wrapping my arms around his shoulders, pulling him closer. It was forceful and filled with more passion than I’d ever encountered, so much that it ignited an inferno inside me.
All I wanted was for him to keep touching me, to never stop.
