4 out of 5
I was so worried that this was going to be the standard “rich playboy meets simpering innocent” storyline. The beginning was a little slow to heat up and there’s some insta-love and a bit of “shining knight syndrome”, but once it heats up and the story gets moving- it is HOT! I really appreciated that I wasn’t dragged along without “secrets” being revealed. Jacob gives you just enough to whet your appetite and then you have to keep reading for more. And I devoured it!
I thoroughly have a crush on Caston. He’s a sweetie, but he’s also a man of power and confidence. Very sexy. Sabrina took longer for me to like, but as her character finds her feet, I grew to like her. She’s a great match for Caston.
Keeping with trends, F.L. Jacob did leave us with a cliffhanger. But it’s not a “How will they ever find their HEA?” kind of cliffhanger. It’s more of a “oh shit, what now? Leave them alone!” kind of cliffhanger. Is that TMI? I’m a little ill with cliffhangers, but I don’t want my loathing affecting my feelings on a book as a whole. I really enjoyed this book.
Have I Told You has super super sexy times that would seriously make your mother blush. Not my mother, she’ll love every second of the smut. But the sexy times are plentiful and well written. I strongly recommend this book and I will definitely be reading the sequel. With how well Caston and Sabrina’s story has been told so far, I have high expectations for F.L. Jacob’s future work.
Caston Black has it all, according to the outside world. The owner of the best-selling gentlemen’s magazine, Black Hollywood, has good looks, fame, fortune, and a reputation that precedes him. He can have any woman he wants, as long as he doesn’t keep them. Caston sets his sights on Sabrina for his next Hollywood Sweetheart. Little does he know he will find the woman to share his life, the one he is meant to keep forever.
Sabrina Bennett has been in a mentally and physically abusive relationship that has destroyed the beautiful, confident dancer who arrived at college three years ago. She thinks the only good thing left in her life is her abusive boyfriend. Keeping her boyfriend happy is her number one priority, no matter how impossible. She’s been broken and molded into a frightened, unsure girl desperate to be worthy of love.
Meeting by chance one evening, sparks fly between Caston and Sabrina. Neither expected the feelings they bring out in each other. Trying to have a normal relationship in their abnormal world is almost impossible, happiness is a new way of life for the lovers. They want to move forward, but the past won’t let go.
Can Caston help Sabrina heal from her past abuse? Can Sabrina show Caston he is as strong as he appears to be? When is the price of love too much? What do you do when the biggest threat to the person you love is you?
I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full time employee. Life is crazy and my love for reading had fizzled over the years but thanks to a wonderful group of ladies that I met last year I started reading again. Their love for books turned me on to many great writers who I would have never discovered if I hadn’t started reading again!
I started writing for them. They brought out my love for writing that I haven’t seen in years. Starting this process was tedious and nerve wrecking, but my lovely ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.
