Determined Trilogy, #1

David and Samantha were cute but they moved kind of fast. She cracked me up when she stole a pair of his underwear and put them on because he stole hers and put them in his pocket. It was like a small victory for her and I was anxious to see his reaction when he found out instead of her walking around commando. Even though they were fast he was really sweet to her.

Samantha is so adorable and talked herself into going on a date with David by this thought, “there was a rich-beyond words prime specimen of maleness sitting across from me, wanting to take me out on a fancy date,” and it worked because that was the start of her going to her first symphony. I also love her relationship with Carrie, only a true friend will pretend to be your lesbian girlfriend to protect you from a guy you didn’t want to be around.

I think it’s great how Samantha is taking it. She’s not letting it go to her head and she’s still herself. I would have a ball with my own driver. (I hate driving and would love to have someone drive me around so that I can relax and get lost in my thoughts.) Not only that but she handled bad situations, and things that could have turned ugly, with poise and a little earned smugness. It was awesome. The sex was amazing and I loved how they talked to each other, you can tell that they have a connection. They were hot for each other and weren't afraid to show it. Evan was a creep from the beginning and I knew they were going to have problems with him.

In all it was a good read.

Book Blurb for Determined

Billionaire David Keith was sexy, successful, and on the wish list of every woman in San Francisco. Sam knew it was dangerous to hope she was different than all the women David normally dated, but for the first time, success wasn’t the only thing on Samantha’s mind.
