Filthy Rich by Dawn Ryder

Celeste Connor swore that she'd never be a victim again. After the hell of her abusive ex, the last thing she needs is to be under another man's thumb. But when she catches the eye of fiercely dominant Nartan Lupan at her best friend's wedding, Celeste finds herself drawn into a glittering world of wealth and power that has her body aching and her mind reeling.
Nartan is a filthy rich businessman who works hard, plays harder, and doesn't take no for an answer-and he wants Celeste with a hunger he's never before felt. He'll do whatever it takes to have her. But Nartan didn't expect that he'd want still more...

Celeste is recovering emotionally from an abusive ex-husband and has traveled to Alaska for her best friend’s wedding. Nartan—the groom’s best friend—has decided that he wants Celeste, all that’s left to do is to convince her she wants him too.
I gave this my best go and, unfortunately, it went nowhere expect for in the characters heads. Way, way, way too much bloody internal dialogue. In fact, I could probably fill a thimble with how little the characters communicated with each other. Not only did the internal dialogue get repetitive in places, it made the characters feel disconnected and caused my eyes to glaze over.
Finally, rather than chucking my Kindle in the bin, I just gave up.
One a side note, if you do pick this up, pick up the first book in the series. Out of Bounds, because what I read in this book was all about Tarak and Sabra’s wedding.
Overall, too much internal dialogue ruined the book before it even really began.
