Releasing control is relief…
I was warned about men like Brett Maclean.
He was dark and thrilling, intense and controlling. And he captivated me from the very start. He unleashed something inside of me like no other. His bad rep and troubled past drew me to him like gasoline feeding a flame.
With just one taste, I felt the danger in him, the uncontrollable power that left me breathless. The passion consumed me. Fast and hard.
Temptation couldn't guard my heart. I should have known a man of such raw and wild desires came with competition.
I'm a new self-published author who just got introduced to the writing world early 2013. My aunt suggested that I write a story because I'm an avid reader but I waved it off and left it alone. Well this year, a story came to me and I went with it. It took me a little bit but I finally got a story idea that worked and now I can't stop or control the characters/stories that keep popping up in my head. I'm born and raised in Canada and I live with my very wonderful and supportive husband, Michael. We don't have any children (yet) unless you count our cats. My hubby been my rock through this whole new experience for me. I couldn't have done it without him and my friends and family. One of the many things I love about this new chapter in my life is that I'm learning constantly. It's never a dull moment and as long as one person likes my story, I am happy.

I was honored to be asked to read Brett's story way early in the process!! I met Brett in the Shattered series and really felt bad for him. I knew there was more to his story and was so happy that Jo-Anna decided to give him a book (series) too! and HOLY CRAP!! If I had known how hot he was going to be, I would have been begging for his book long long ago!! WOW!! Now I like to highlight quotes as I read the book. Most of the time I'll get about a page worth of quotes. Not with this book!! I had 4 pages of quotes!!! And of course, I had to create some teasers for these quotes! It's very easy to do with great wording!!! OK, so on to my review.
Brett was very quiet in the Shattered series. Well he is no more. He has come out of his shell and is showing off his alpha controlling self. He knows what he wants and he goes after it! He won't stop until he gets what he wants. And he wants Evvie Neal! He knows he has to be with her (ok, he just wants to "fuck" her). But after that first kiss, it was over for him. Evvie is no one to mess around with either!! She's the youngest, having older brothers AND a male best friend that is like another brother, she knows how to handle men. And they all want to protect her from the playboy Brett.
You will fall in love with both of these characters. I did, right from the beginning. Their banter back and forth is amazing! oh and the sex.............. OFF THE CHARTS HOT!!! so hot!!
If the teasers above did not convince you to click on this book, I'm not sure what is wrong with you!!! Seriously, this is a must read!! and just when I didn't think it could get any hotter................... I've started reading book 2 in the series and H O L Y C R A P!! EVEN HOTTER!! and I didn't think that would be possible!! This is my favorite quote from the book. Read this quote and then go click! Find out for yourself! You won't be sorry!!
I love her. More than life itself.
It’s a love so powerful, it consumes me. Invades my thoughts, controls my actions. It possesses me.
From the first touch, the first kiss, Evvie Neal has been mine. She didn’t know it then and now, three months later, here we are, in love. Deep and raw emotional love.
She tells me she feels the same. Shows me more instead. They are just words but every time she says them, those three little words rock me to the core. Brings me to my knees.
She is the only woman ever to get me to submit. To open up. To reveal myself. A part of me I’ve kept hidden since I was a child.
She is the one. Mine.
