I did not know what to expect while reading Destroy since I am not familiar with the Submission series by CD Reiss. However, I am a Nikki Sloane fan and knew I would be in for a dark and sensual read.
Jessica Carnes, a stubborn, strong-willed artist finds herself trying to save her reputation. Jessica's sculpture has been sold and she finds herself having to decide whether to destroy her sculpture that she has poured her heart into or see it in the hands of a man she loathes.
Alec Rafferty seems to hold all the cards, he seems to find himself with the power to destroy Jessica's rebuilt reputation. Alec is a artist himself but has a stigma in the world of artist. He offers Jessica a proposition to collaborate on a new sculpture. The only problem is the heated chemistry they have makes it difficult to keep their hands off of each other.
Destroy is a very short read but in that time it had the heat, the want and hate between two characters and it drew me in to wanting to read the Submission series and find out about the characters. I really never give novellas 5 stars because I don't feel they can give the reader the emotions that's needed from a full story but Nikki Sloane proved me wrong. This is a 5 star must read!
