Book Review by Brenda Wright
Tori McLeod moved to the big city to get away from her mother—and her past. Her new routine is destroyed when she meets a mysterious stranger who won’t take no for an answer. Sebastian intrigues her, but his eyes hold secrets she would rather avoid. Sebastian Chelios, a hard-as-nails enforcer, is a new-in-town loner. He has to have her. Control her. Possess her. But he can’t—won’t—lose control, even though Tori’s innocence fascinates him. The last thing he’s going to do is love her, even after he gets her in his bed.Losing control is dangerous, especially when someone from Sebastian’s past covets Tori, putting more than just her heart in danger.
Can Sebastian protect Tori from Jose’s sadistic obsession? If he gets his hands on her, will she make it out in one piece?
I was given an ARC from the author because she’s a Twinsie, too!!! Jo-Anna Walker wrote her first book. When I first joined Twinsie Talk she told me she was writing a book. I was so excited for her. Then she asked if I wanted to read it...Of course I said yes!!! I was nervous though. I’m kind of a blunt and “tell it like it is” kinda girl. What if I didn’t like it? What if it’s bad? I just met this girl, how can I tell her bad things about her book....THEN I READ IT!!! There was NOTHING for me to worry about! The book was fabulous!!! I loved it!!! She told me to be honest with her and I said I would.
Here it goes!! JO-ANNA WALKER – I LOVED THIS BOOK!! I think the first quote I highlighted was on page 2!! It was really good. There were tons of great quotes in this story. It had a great hot guy (what’s not to love about that?). This story has it all. It has great characters, hot sex, a bad guy, mystery, and drama. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at the kindle, you name it, I had that emotion!! I personally cannot wait for the second book. It can't come soon enough...I'm glad I have that Twinsie connection and maybe she'll let me read it early!! (I'm begging, JoAnna!!)
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“I needed to know.” His voice raspy as the pad of his thumb ran over my bottom lip before he placed a soft kiss on my swollen lips.
I frowned, confused. “Know what?” I panted, gripping his shirt in my hand.
“If your lips tasted as good as they looked.”
“You are definitely blushing now.” He whispered, placing a kiss on my neck.
“Sebastian.” My heart thumped against my chest and I bit my bottom lip.
“What, little one?”
“I…I…” I stammered, words not forming properly on my tongue.
He chuckled. “Is there something you want?”
I licked my lips and couldn’t help but stare at his big hard body. Tattoos covered his torso and both his nipples were pierced. He was gorgeous and at the moment, he was all mine.
Our mouths continued to move together as he consumed me completely. Left me utterly breathless.
