MOMENTARY LAPSE

MOMENTARY LAPSE                           TONI J. STRAWN

Any man can get down and dirty. A real man cleans up his own mess. One Moment, Book 2 Madison St James's life is a glittering fairy tale until her Prince Charming turns out to be Prince Cheating. With the help of a sexy stranger, Madison becomes someone she's not for just one night. Confident, uninhibited, and up for no-holds-barred sex. It's hot. It's sensual. And so real that Madison doesn't see how she can ever return to her superficial life. But with no money of her own, no job and no experience, Madison is trapped. Just like her manipulative mother planned. Cole Langford has one of the most powerful names in Maryland, but none of the money and prestige that go with it. But he knows first-hand what it's like to get kicked to the curb by power-wielding megalomaniacs. Lately Cole's libido's been on holiday. Even his old hobby of seducing rich social climbers and leaving them begging has lost its appeal. But Madison is like decadent candy, and Cole isn't satisfied with one tiny taste. Even if going back for seconds has disaster written all over it. Warning: Contains an appetizing one-night stand in a hotel, saucy sexcapades in a deserted stairwell and proof that sometimes you have to strip down and get naked in front of the mirror to truly see yourself. 

MY REVIEW:
     What do you do when you grow up with a mom who thinks she owns your life?  You know the ones that say, “I gave birth to you so therefore you owe me.”  Well those moms are mild compared to Madison St. James’s mom Patricia.  She is a social climber.  Originally trailer trash who is a poser now.
     She put Madison in pageants as far back as she could remember.  Taught her manners, how to walk, talk, who to talk to, and where to be seen.  No one or nothing got past Patricia.  So, when it came time for Madison to marry well she hand picked him too, Logan, a senator’s son.
     There was just one or two flaws in the ointment.  He can’t seem to live within his financial means.  So to solve that problem, Patricia pays him an allowance which he goes over also.  But when your daddy is a senator and his wealthy girlfriend’s mom want’s this he does it.  Plus this is his father’s final warning marry Madison and shape up or get cut off.  So…
     Bringing us to his second flaw.  Madison caught him cheating on her and she tells him it is over.  She then runs out to stay at the very hotel she caught him at.  Morbid? Yes!  She know it is.  But she just wanted revenge maybe.  She goes down to the bar orders a drink when she catches the eye of a Cole Langford.  Not of the rich side of the Langford’s he won’t claim them.  So don’t even try and lump them.  He won’t have it.  Anyway, he doesn’t like the rich but there is something about Madison that is different.  She is shy, mannered, unsure, yet bold, beautiful, and scared all at the same time.  Which totally captured him which in itself angers him.
     When she almost falls off her chair he is there to catch her.  He has no plans to bed her those days are behind him.  Yet, he can’t seem to turn away from this one.  But he is torn for he know he has his sister who is about her age who has physical therapy to do and so much more from an accident that had killed their mom.  She has overcome a lot but he has a chip on his shoulder and the rich side of the Langford’s to thank for that since they wouldn’t help when his sister needed them.  Resentment much?
     This was one hot story.  It grabs you from the get to.  The characters are bold and loud and in your face but they keep you on your toes.  I couldn’t put it down.  The sex scenes are hot so bring a fan.  I give this 5++++ stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
