Synopsis (Goodreads):
Diego Lobos is every mother’s dream. He’s handsome, smart, athletic, and well-mannered. Diego attended an Ivy League college and managed to keep a near perfect GPA. Mothers want Diego Lobos as their future son-in-law. Girls swoon at the mere mention of his name. Guys want Diego to be on their team. They want Diego by their side at the club.

Everyone wants to be friends with Diego Lobos. He’s the guy everyone loves… And rightly so. But is he right for me? Can Diego fill the voids within me? Those vacant spaces that have been dark and empty for so long that I’d forgotten they existed until he stepped into my life… Diego is charismatic, charming, and genuine. He’s a sexy motherfucker without being the arrogant asshole. What more can a girl ask for? In my dark world I need more. I have a need most guys can’t fill. I demand certain expectations that have guys cupping their balls and running in the other direction.

Can Diego be a submissive? Sometimes I think so and other times he just confuses the shit out of me. This particular detail matters though. I can’t ever go back to that time. I can’t ever be under another man’s thumb. I refuse to bend. I refuse to part with the little bit that’s left of me.

Yes, I’m broken. But damn the world to hell if even this fractured part of me is more magnificent than half the bitches out there.

Love me or hate me. I don’t give a flying fuck. But everybody loves Diego… So why would he work so hard to be with someone like me?

This is book 3 in the Irresistible series. Desirae and Diego's story.

First Impression

Reverence is the third book in the Irresistible series that focuses on Desirae and Diego. I have a feeling this is going to be a good read with a lot of steamy scenes. 

Opening Lines
“I was supposed to go to boarding school during my adolescent years. Mother had done her research, filled out applications, and paid the deposit... But Father wasn't having any of it.”
The Good

Reverence was definitely steamy! But this wasn't just a steamy read, Senayda Pierre brings a very complex story to life and that takes real talent. Wow, wow! I really loved the characters in this book. Desirae is a strong female character that has had to go through some horrible things at the hands of her parents. Finally free she's moving on with her life, but what made me love her the most was the fact that as much as she's a tough cookie she's also vulnerable, making her a more realistic character.

Although she's attracted to Diego, attracted is an understatement, she's not sure if he can give her what she needs. Enter Diego, well this was a character I just automatically swooned over!! The description of him had me drooling, no wander he's the perfect guy! And the way he calls her Tesoro, I mean how do you not swoon?! He wants Desirae from the moment he meets her but tries to resist due to her being his sisters best friend and that only last for so long. Diego finally decides that he needs her and not just for one night but every night but getting her to let her guard down is not something that will be easy and Diego sure did have his work cut out for him.

The Bad / The In-Between

A really minor thing but I found the flow of this book to a little choppy and not as smooth as I wanted it to be, I felt like somethings just happened and there was no momentum building up to certain events.

Lasting Impression

Overall, Reverence was one hot, steamy, and complex read!! Great characters an a great plot, I highly recommend picking up this series! I'm looking forward to the next book that I believe will be Surrender and it's Nicholas and Andrea's story :).
