4,5 Stars

Gabe Maxwell is a powerhouse in the boardroom, a man with a dark past he's buried under success and power. He's not a white picket fence and forever kind of guy and he's definitely not into redheads. That is until one corners him, kisses him and thanks him for waking her up. Right before she walks away and leaves him. She's gone and he's obsessed.

Then she walks into his office and back into his life, and he has to have her. It doesn't matter that she's the kind of woman you marry. It doesn't matter that she's everything he avoids because she's everything he wants.

Only Abbie isn't the good girl she seems. She has secrets and a past and soon, she'll pull Gabe into her bed, her life, and that spells more than obsession. It spells danger.

We all remember Gabe from Reid's books.
His Demand & Her Submission can be read as a complete standalone duet - but I suggest you read the Dirty Rich series in the right order - all very adorable and sexy and exciting books! ☺

We loved Gabe from the moment we met him as Reid's brother. He's this mysterious & sexy lawyer. And that's all we know.
Now we get to hear his story. And it's really sexy and exciting!
He's a one night kind of guy. He will never fall in love and get married like his brother. Things happened in his past that he does not want to relive.
But then he sees this redhead at a bar and he's ... smitten!

Abbie has some very serious and even dangerous legal problems - good thing she just met one of the best lawyers in New York.

Both have some secrets they're not yet telling ...


I really adored this story.
I was waiting for Gabe's book for so long and now here it is!
It starts sexy and exciting and it kind of never stops being sexy and exciting and mysterious and suspensy!
Also - lots of adorable puppy moments!

It was a bit too much back and forth. I stopped counting the times Abbie wanted to run away. Ugh!
Why don't people in books just TALK to each other. If they would just talk about everything - all the secret shit - it would never be as bad is it is once the lies are revealed later on in the stories.
I hate secrets and those two just got on my nerves with all their secrets!
Without those stupid secrets and without the constant repeat of Abbie's running or not running arguments - these two books could've / should've been only one book! BUT - we all know that Lisa loves writing ALL THE WORDS. ☺ And we will always read them!

BUT - I still really liked the story & loved Gabe - I can't wait to get my hands on book #2!!!!

HIS DEMAND was a very sexy & exciting romance full of adorable puppies!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Gabe - this one is MINE!!!

ARC received for an honest review

If you have read the Dirty books you have met Gabe already, however this duet could be read as a stand alone.

I have been intrigued by Gabe (Reid and Cat's brother) all through this Dirty Rich series, and I have been looking forward to his story.

Unfortunately, for me, anyway, His Demand fell a bit short for me.  It felt like we went from first meetings to practically moving in with each other in 4.2 seconds.

Abbie annoyed me.  She was so hot and cold with Gabe.  All hot and bothered by him one second, running away from him the next.  It was like they were in a rinse, lather and repeat cycle.  I just wanted to yell at her to make up her darn mind.  And if she didn't want Gabe, I would take him off her hands!

Gabe also felt like he has lost some of his hard-ass-ness, boooo.  I want the take-no-crap gabe back.

But this could all just be me.

We are left on a bit of a cliffy with this one, however it is a LRJ duet, so that was expected when I started reading.

I look forward to seeing where Gabe and Abbie's story goes.
