I never let anyone get too close – but he’s the only man who’s ever made me feel alive.
Meeting Jackson Steele was a shock to my senses. Confident and commanding, he could take charge of any room…or any woman. And Jackson wanted me. Our bond was immediate, our passion untamed. I wanted to surrender completely, but I couldn’t risk his knowing the truth about my past. Yet Jackson carried secrets too, and in our desire we found our escape. Learning to trust is never easy. My mind told me to run. But heart had never felt a fire this strong – one that could save me…or scorch me forever.
Julie Kenner never disappoints with her captivating stories. I love her writing style and the way she leaves you a bread crumb trail of clues as the story unfolds but she leaves you wondering the whole time your reading the who, what, how and whys of the story, right until the last moment.
Jackson is a man who likes his control and doesnt give up easily on the things he wants, Sylvia left him once before it wont happen again.
Sylvia needs to learn to trust and control is something that she can’t give up, her past has influence over her future.
Only one man, Jackson, has ever been let inside her walls and she ran, coming face to face with Jackson again throws her into a tail spin. Its more than just the resort project, the attraction, connection, chemistry and desire are hard to fight, and Jackson is fighting, pushing, hes not about to give up.
The romance, scorching hot and the passion oozes off the pages, its intense and erotic.
As this story unfolds there are moments where the pain is palpable, and the twist and turns had me taking in a quick breath and i found myself reading faster to get to the next revelation.
These are two strong and fantastic characters and i cannot wait to see where Kenner takes them next. I liked the link with Damian and Nikki it was good to catch up with old characters.
Brilliant book i so want the second in the trilogy now to see what happens next.
