Having grown up with a freeloading
mother who cared for no one but herself, Jacey Cass is
determined to make her own way in the world. Her job as a
sales clerk at a boutique for Insomnia, one of the hottest
lingerie companies in the country, is just one more step
towards a brighter future, including being able to afford
college. The path she has set for herself means life is all
work and no play for Jacey, except once a year. At
Insomnia’s annual black-tie soirée, Jacey lets go for one
night and has blissful, anonymous sex with the perfect
lover, Alex Vaughn.
Alex is one step away from taking over
Insomnia. The only person standing in his way is his father
who is refusing to hand over the reins even as the man
violates the values Insomnia was built on. After his father
fires the model for the company’s big summer catalog, Alex
has a brilliant idea. The mysterious woman he meets once a
year is the perfect beauty to be the Insomnia cover model.
What he doesn’t expect is for his enigmatic lover to turn
him down flat.
Jacey will never accept a handout,
which is exactly what she sees Alex’s offer as. But when
the search for a model turns into a televised competition
with one hundred thousand dollars and a contract as the
prize, Jacey knows the chance to win much-needed money is
too good to pass up. The contest brings Jacey back into
Alex’s life and into his arms. But someone is out to
destroy the burgeoning relationship between Alex and Jacey.
It’s up to the lovers to decide if the feelings between them
are strong enough to overcome someone else’s machinations.
Like a great piece of lingerie,
For His Eyes Only tempts and teases. It’s a sensual
delight made enchanting by Avery Beck’s signature charming
characters. Jacey is a woman who, for good reason, is
absolutely determined to never rely on anyone but herself.
She has survived a hellish childhood and come out the
stronger for it, so it’s impossible not to cheer for her to
find happiness, love, and success. Alex’s background may be
miles away from Jacey’s, but he’s her match on every level.
Alex may have a wealthy father and be in line for the
position of CEO of Insomnia, but he’s also a hard worker and
is tender and protective of those he cares for. The road to
happily ever after is filled with obstacles for Jacey and
Alex, most of them set up by Alex’s conniving father. As
the tale’s villain, William Vaughn is suitably irredeemable
and fits the bill perfectly.
I’ve quickly come to adore Ms. Beck’s stories for their
endearing characters and steamy-hot love scenes; For
His Eyes Only has both in spades. I lost myself in
Jacey and Alex’s story for hours, finishing the story fully
satisfied and eager to read the next book of Ms. Beck’s.
