My name is Angelica McCoy and I am a man-eater. I use men. I use them to make me feel worthy and beautiful, to help me get through the day. To help me forget.
That is until a certain man walked into my life and turned it upside down. He’s the only person that’s been able to see through the lies, the bullshit masks. He turns every wall I've carefully constructed around my broken heart to rubble.
Without questioning it, without asking for permission he takes my heart and makes it his.
The question is can I get over my own fears, the suffocating disbelief in happily ever after to give him what he needs? What he deserves?
“Look at me, baby.”
Opening my eyes at his soft command I find his blue ones trained on me. In the past week he’s told me that he adores me and that he wasn’t letting me go. Staring into his eyes as he moves above me, I believe him. His eyes are nearly screaming the words I’m desperate to hear, the words I’m too afraid to say out loud. I wish more than anything for the strength to tell him how I feel.
I thought all of my firsts were used up but I know now just how wrong in that assumption I was. I’ve never made love before. Until now. The emotion in this room is tangible, the delicious feeling of security washing over me as I finally grasp onto those emotions.
I shatter under the man that is slowly taking over my heart. Tears form in my eyes that I’m unable to hold back. I’m toeing the edge so close to jumping, falling for this man. And I have to believe Ryan is right there with me.
My name is no more than a whisper as Ryan follows closely behind with his own release. Even that one whispered word feels more important than any word another man’s spoken to me in the past.
I was so happy when I read Vanquish (book 1). I knew immediately that S.J. McGran was going to be another notable author that I could fold up and put into my sacred box of "keepers". You know what I'm talking about, when your reading a book and it just.. clicks. So naturally I couldn't wait to read Conquer (book 2).
It centres on Angelica McCoy who we are introduced to in Vanquish. She is a man-eater & party animal, and although her family comes from money & status, they are grounded and loving. Angelica harbours a deep seated pain from long ago and guards her heart fiercely. She is only capable of physical intimacy and is happy to burn through men to temporarily numb her pain. Until she meets the man who will not allow her to use him and throw him away. A man who, with his GQ good looks and exceptional intelligence, will melt your panties off!
I don't want to say who that man turns out to be because I dont want to spoil your experience, you'll just have to find out yourself. But I promise you this book will have you feeling every emotion on the spectrum.
S.J. McGran absolutely nailed it!I couldn't put Conquer down. It is written in dual POV in a tone that is flawless, I absolutely believed every word. These characters & their stories have permeated my heart and I CANNOT WAIT until book 3. LOVE LOVE LOVE this series and so will you- HOS guarantee!!
5 shiny, indefectible stars!! Thanks for another amazing instalment S.J McGran!
