First published as a five-part e serial novel, Anything He Wants inflamed imaginations everywhere and became a national bestseller. Now available for the first time ever as a complete book, this edition contains never-before-released scenes and special bonus material. Don’t miss this erotic tale of a powerful billionaire who always gets what he wants and the young woman who’s about to enter his exclusive realm--a world of glittering opulence and all-consuming passion, where she’ll explore the darkest reaches of her own desire.

Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right?

Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need. As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender. But even as enemies seek deadly revenge against him, she’ll discover that her greatest threat is falling for her fiercely guarded boss…and yielding to her own darkest needs.

Review

Lucy Delacourt’s life is nothing but easy. After the sudden death of her parents and the loss of their family home, she drops out of school and moves to New York to start over and pay off her student loans. Her dreams of becoming a lawyer may be squashed for the moment but Lucy can’t give up. She takes a temp position at Hamilton Industries to help pay the bills.

The job might be crappy but the one highlight is the sexy and dark man who enters the elevator at the same time every morning. It starts off innocent but Lucy slowly realizes she wants a piece of her fantasy man. She gets her chance when she is suddenly left alone with her dream man. The sexual intimacy they share in the elevator that day leaves her shaken and soon Lucy is pulled into a crazy and sensual affair with the boss of the company.

Jeremiah Hamilton is a powerful billionaire who is never denied anything he wants and what he wants is Lucy completely under him. He sees a quiet beauty in her so he offers her a job as his personal assistant to do anything that he wants. Once Lucy agrees, he takes her away to Paris where they are both thrown into a dark game of passion, deceit and lies.

For some reason I liked this story. Lucy is innocent enough for me and normally she would drive me crazy but her insecurities and inexperience makes her endearing. I’m not sure if I buy the fact that she agrees to be his “personal assistant” and goes off with him to Paris after knowing him for only two days but I’ll go with it. Hey, I’m reading another story about a rich CEO who has a wicked dark side, so who am I to judge!

Since this was originally released in installments, the story flows awkwardly. The chapters start and end like installments that the publisher just pushed together. There is a lot happening in a two week period that is confusing. There is an assassin attempt and crazy family members the author throws in. The story could have been fleshed out better with more background story and better character development.

There is little resolution to Lucy and Jeremiah’s relationship. While they did bond during their time in Paris there is something missing. The cliffhanger at the end of the book didn’t help to calm that feeling. Of course, I’ll be waiting for the next book to come out. Hopefully, the author will take time to develop the story more and close some of the gaps from this book.
