Book Review: Only (Holton Woods #2) by HelenKay Dimon


He’s a man who fixes difficult situations. She’s the one thing he can’t handle—and the one thing he can’t resist…


Sebastian Jameson negotiates for high-end clients who need problems taken care of quickly and discreetly. Accustomed to being in control, he’s still reeling from his ex-wife’s decision to write a tell-all about their private life, one that highlighted their bedroom activities. The fallout left Bast’s love life in chaos, making him a magnet for women who thrive on risky fantasies, and a pariah to all others.

Kyra Royer knows all about Bast’s reputation—and is intrigued enough to try to change him into a one-woman guy. But getting him into her bed will be a challenge. He’s known her brother for years, and her brother, with his rough past and sniper abilities, is not a man you cross. Kyra knows Bast thinks she’s off-limits, so she’ll have to get creative to make him hers.

As Kyra turns up the heat, Bast struggles to resist the sexy young woman’s considerable charms. But when Bast’s job turns from tricky to deadly, keeping Kyra nearby might be the only way to keep her alive—even if it means getting closer than he ever intended…

We got a glimpse of attorney Sebastian Jameson in Mercy and right off the bad I wanted more. More sexy attorney, more controlling man, more more more! I loved him, I wanted to know him, I wanted to be consumed by him and HelenKay Dimon delivered!

Wade, whom we also met in Mercy, has a baby sister, Kyra, who he will protect with ever ounce of power he owns. He wants more for her. He wants her to succeed in life and move on from the not so great upbringing they had. He wants her to escape the life he lives everyday. He wants her to get out and do something important, be someone. She is determined and strong and is following down the path of success and departure until Bast.

Kyra knows that Bast is no good for her, she knows that with one flick of the wrist he can damage her heart and kill her spirit. She doesn’t care she wants him, every part of the man he is and she will go to any means necessary to claim that man as her own. The years of difference that linger between them don’t matter, all that matters is the way she feels every time their paths cross and the butterflies that whirl in her stomach with every lingering look. It’s raw and passionate. The feeling is forbidden but she wants it, she will suffer the consequences just to have him and those consequences maybe the ones that ruin her life forever, but it’s a risk she will take.

Bast knows he needs to stay as far away from Kyra as possible. She is something too pure and good for the likes of him. She is innocent and sweet and besides that he knows Wade will most likely kill him if he ever touched his baby sister. The only problem is his heads collide with each other.   Slowly he finds his willpower dwindling and his need to consume her taking over. He will snap, there is no doubt about that. He will have her and it may just cost him everything.

 I can’t even start with this series. HelenKay is one heck of a romance naughty girl writer. The characters are HOT, the scenes are on fire and everything she puts on paper will crawl its way into your soul and take over. The storyline was so addicting I couldn’t put the Only down. I needed it like air in my lungs and like food in my stomach. She started the hot factor in Mercy and she kept it going in Only. I loved the struggle between the characters and how Bast fought to do the right thing for Kyra. I loved Kyra’s stubbornness to get what she wanted. Their banter amused me and their sex set me on fire.

I can honestly say that I am NOT a big fan of series, even though I do believe you can read each of these novels as stand alones I would highly recommend starting from the beginning because I can promise you, you will NOT be disappointed. This is defiantly a series I will read every book she puts out, no questions asked. I will never forget these characters; they found a place in my heart and will stay there. I have had the honor of meeting Becca and Jarrett (Mercy), Wade and Eli (Mercy and Taken) and Bast and Kyra (Only). In fact I have already read and LOVED Taken (soon to be released). I am really hoping we get Natalie and Gage next. Yummy. Keep them coming HelenKay – you have earned an eager fan that will follow you forever.
