Book Details

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Breathless Trilogy comes the first novel in the Enforcers series—a bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they’re willing to pay for pleasure.

What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.

She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.

What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.

The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.

This read follows a heavy hitter as it follows my The Bronze Horseman journey. Now don’t get me wrong, once I got in to Evangeline (Angel) and Drake’s story I wanted to know how all of his secrets would play out. But the beginning happened too fast for me, it wasn’t realistic. Hot, sexy, dream-worthy…yes. But realistic…no. I didn’t get a good feel for Evangeline, her appearance until several chapters in. We have a broken, insecure female in a world of people she ranks as higher than herself. I enjoyed that she has growth for us to watch and how others can influence this. Drake is a businessman and we’re not fully informed on all of the ins and outs of these details. This provides a mysterious spin, which I enjoyed. Overall this was a good read and I’ll be ready for the next upon its release in May to get the next installment of Angel and Drake’s story. That ending though….
Give this a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 3 stars
