Violence marked Freddie Edun’s early years. Coming to work for the Essiens saved him from the angry young man he was and gave him focus. Now he’s walking the path of success, and partnership in Banks Security business is within reach. He just has to seal this deal with a potential client first. Until he meets the client’s wife, and the deal risks taking a nose dive.
Kike Ogun married young to a man who dazzled her with his bogus charm. She’s lived like a caged bird for many years, but with a looming milestone birthday on the horizon, she is determined to walk a new path of self-love. If she could just ignore the electrifying and forbidden attraction she feels towards a younger man from the first moment they meet.
With a devious husband who refuses to let go, she’s going to need help—Freddie’s protection—to stay alive long enough to celebrate her upcoming birthday. And she’s going to have to give in to her dark passion for him and finally unleash the natural woman inside. If it’s only sex, then what’s love got to do it?
This story unravels in two instalments—this is the first part.
Freddie Untangled was a great 5 star read.
Kike is a famous actress and married to Lekan who is a Pastor with a very dark side.
Freddie works in security and after a near kidnapping, his company is hired by Kike and her husband. He is Kike’s bodyguard and takes the job very seriously.
There is something about Freddie that gets to Kike. He makes her feel things she hasn’t felt in a long time. Freddie is also finding himself attracted to Kike, there is something about this woman that intrigues him.
Sometimes, I feel as if I’m going to be murdered in my sleep
When Kike thinks she’s pulling one over on Freddie, she is the one surprised. I loved that scene.
As we move forward some more surprises and twists are revealed. We learn a few more things about Kike and Freddie. There is a level of D/s relationship and a little bit of masochist/sadist as well. I was all over the place with this book. Would she leave, wouldn’t she leave? Things take a big turn at the end leaving a big cliffhanger. This was my first read from Kiru Taye and I really enjoyed it, I am looking forward to reading more in this series. I need to know what happens.
