Running is always easier.
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.
Sebastian 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.
How can Sebastian protect Tori from Jose’s sadistic obsession? If he gets his hands on her, will she make it out in one piece?
Angie J's Review:
OK SOOOO Yes I gave this 5 stars and yes I know the author and Yes she is a blogger friend of mine BUT seriously it is worth the 5 stars.
This book has my stomach in knots, my panties very wet and the tears streaming down my face. OMG I was texting Jo-Jo throughout the ending chapters screaming about what was going one....Jo Jo has mad writing chops for sure. She wrote a lot of mystery (what does Brett, Sebastian and Jose have in common), hot sex (omg the towel scene with Tori/Little One and Sebastian) and an amazeball twist ending.....I am stillllllll freaking out about it.........
The main characters Tori/Sebastian meet at a coffee shop.....Instant chemistry between the two of them. They have a very physical pull but soon develop feelings for one another. You meet Brett and think JACKASS but he is Tori's best friend Keisha's brother soooo you kinda gotta deal with him. However, meeting Jose (insert evil music) was heart stopping. I have met some cray cray people in my RL and lemme say I better never meet a real Jose. He is the perfect "bad guy" and man I felt sorry for Tori and Sebastian. Obsessed over Tori is Jose and he believes Tori is his but Sebastian screw up his chance to 'meet her first".....
Tori is a great character. She is a great mix of foul mouth trucker and sweet innocent girl next door...interesting mix right!!! Sebastian is a hot bad boy...tattooed, piercings and mystery man who makes sure that Tori (as well as myself) is hooked. My favorite line was "I was broken til I found you. You are my glue." *swoon*
I cannot wait for book 2 in the series because I need to know what happens to Tori. I also need to know about this yummmmmmy man named Garrith *wiped droll from my chin*. Anywho people ya gotta get this book so do me a favor...click the link below and get this for yourself. I couldn't put the book down!!!!!!!!
This was a book I purchased and choose to read because one the author is a friend/fellow blogger and two the book description intrigued me. I mean come on; Hard-as-nails enforcer, innocent girl, and some sadistic obsessed guy tell me you’re not a little intrigued. I loved this book it took me on twist and turns and some oh I never saw that coming. I found myself yelling at my nook at times, swooning at other times, freaking out sometimes and yes I even shed some tears.
This is told through Tori’s point of view so you are kept in the dark about a lot of things just like she is. So yes you are just as confused as Tori like what is it exactly that Sebastian does, how does he know creepy psycho Jose (oh and I mean Creepy psycho as in I don’t think I have read another book with someone so creepy and psychotic), and how does her best friend Keisha’s brother, Brett, fit into all this.
I loved the scene in the coffee shop when Sebastian pinned her between her chair and the coffee table and did what he did just to see her blush. This also gets the attention of Keisha and is how Tori and Keisha meet. My second favorite scene is with Sebastian and Tori toward the end of the book. I was so happy for them at this point and when you read it you will know what I’m talking about.
When this one ended I had cried and was gasping NO and then I saw the last line “To Be Continued.” found myself saying “Wait! What? No, that can’t be.” I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book to find out what happens next. I have to know what is in store for Tori and the rest of them. Oh, my mind is running away with its self….. is it going to be something good, something bad, will I smile, will I laugh, or will I cry more. The suspense is killing me, but I guess I will have to wait like everyone else for the next book.
