Quinn Beck is the kind of guy who keeps to himself. He’s quiet, reserved, and has this thing about being touched; he doesn’t like it. The reason? It’s the secret he’s been keeping inside for twenty years. Quinn has told no one what happened to him when he was ten. No. One. His plan is to take his secret to his grave, but his plan slowly starts to deteriorate when his boss hires a bubbly, outgoing, fidgety, drop-dead gorgeous woman from France, and sticks her in his office.
Margot Leclair moved to the U.S. in hopes to further her architectural and interior design career. Her new boss put her in the same office as his leading architect, who is a bit quirky, but extremely handsome, with his dark hair and dark eyes. Margot has a hard time keeping her eyes off of him. She also finds him intriguing and is curious about what makes him the way he is. She cannot help her growing attraction to him, even though she knows that he finds her irritating.
After almost a year of working together on a project and in the same office, their boss sends them on a trip to London for an Architectural Seminar. It turns into the trip from Hell that has Margot returning with a sprained ankle, and Quinn even more introverted than usual. Even after having the horrible trip, Margot wants to be with Quinn, yet he continues to fight their obvious connection.
When a death in Margot’s family sends them to France only days after getting home from London, an argument between Margot and Quinn sends him to a bar, where he decides to drink himself stupid. Will he reveal his secret to Margot while drunk off his ass, or will he close himself off even more? Can Quinn overcome his past to be with the one woman who wants him as is? Or will Quinn’s past come back to bite him and ruin everything he and Margot have together?
Quinn – The Beck Brothers Series #3 by Andria Large was, so far, my favorite book in the series. This book is filled with so many varying emotions that it allows the reader to imagine very real, very stunning “visuals”. The scenes in this book are sexy, gritty, raw, and powerful! The author, again, does a tremendous job of putting her thoughts on paper and having them come to life. The book has been thoroughly edited although I did have concerns about present and past tense. Certain tenses, while reading them, sound “off” only because we normally do not speak that way. However, I was assured that it is grammatically correct.
Quinn has been harboring a dark secret for many years and has kept it from everyone – including his family. He has forgotten how to love and how to let others love him in return. The secret has completely shattered him until he meets Margot. She not only infuriates and annoys him but has also begun to melt the ice around his heart. Can Quinn learn to trust her enough to tell her about his past? Will Margot be able to teach Quinn that there are certain things worth fighting your inner demons for? This story is a well written, exciting, tug at your heartstrings read that will leave you breathless, crying and wanting more.
I am looking forward to the fourth book in the Beck Brothers Series – Christian’s story. I think he will give all the other brothers a run for their money!!
