Maxwell Knight was dangerously good looking, seductively charming, and definitely trouble. He was everything Jeanella Mefferd did not need now. Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength of her friends and the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she'd never felt before--dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat.

The narrator's voice sounded bored. The male voice was no different than her female voice.

Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

I have all of the Crossfire series and the Dream Guardian series. I loved both series. Hated this book.

The narrator's voice was crisp and concise, but very slow. The story also was very slow, but picked up in the end. There is a very good cliffhanger at the end.
The reason Mia left was not well thought out. She was sweet, but a spitfire, if she were mad enough to leave, she would have stayed long enough to yell and scream at Schooner. I think the reason she was mad enough to leave could have been better thought out.

Dr. Shelly Monroe is a woman who doesn't shy away from going after what she wants, but lately good sex has been hard to find. Shelly's become increasingly frustrated with the men she's been dating and the men she believes are the right choice.Joshua Daniels is certainly not even close to the right choice. In fact, he is exactly the wrong choice. For one thing, he's Mason Langley's best friend and best man. Second, he's too much of a risky complication for Shelly to even consider.

The author that wrote this series, loves the word "however". The story is good. There is some less "however" than was in Exquisite. It bothered me, it may not bother others.

In Try Me, Sole Regret's crafty drummer, Gabe "Force" Banner, seduces a straight-laced accountant before she realizes she's talking to a rock star.

I liked the first 2 books of the series, this one seemed like it could have been told as an epilogue to the second book, or a prologue if there is another book. A few minutes summary would have worked to tell this whole book.

One night changed my life forever. Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it's more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can't. I haven’t told anyone. I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.

Any additional comments?

This story made me cry, that never happens with a book for me. I was a nurse for over 30 years the last 9 years I was a hospice nurse, so I had some perspective with someone dying with a terminal illness. A main character rarely dies in a book. I loved all the characters, and in the end everything works out like you wanted in the beginning of the book.
