Annie has never experienced the 'spark' with a guy - the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It's not just a spark that ignites between them. It's an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

Jodi Ellen always does a great job with her writing and characters. This particular storyline is realistic and I appreciate her tackling this "Forbidden" topic. The only reason I only give four stars is because of the following.
Why do all the heroines, at some point, lose control of bodily function and can't move their legs or speak. It's either they're so enamored with a man they've just met or because some dangerous or traumatic event. Please give your female characters a bit more gumption, or is that the way British women actually respond to unexpected, emergencies or dangerous events. Whatever happened to Fight or Flight,? Is that not a thing in Britain? Anyway, I do enjoy the books and the way they allow you to become apart of a different life.

Maria De La Torre is a survivor. Her life has not been paved with streets of gold...but with blood and sacrifice. She may have been there for her soul sister in the Trinity Trilogy but this story is about her life. The life she chooses. The same life someone from her past is trying to take away.

Looks as though my hot streak ended when Warren Shipley, one of the nation's wealthiest men, hired me to play arm-candy to save face with the other one-percenters he did business with. At least that's what I thought when I arrived in Washington, DC, until I was met by old man Shipley's debonair and insanely handsome son. The Senator from California, Aaron Shipley. Youngest senator in the history of politics, single, beyond rich, and the face of every political magazine around the US.

So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I've ever come across. While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering, and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder to cry on (you know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people!

Okay, when I began this book. Lucy has to be the most irritating character. She is willfully antagonistic and entitled. She made this a very difficult listen.. it took almost the whole book, before I kinda warmed up to her. Adam was the primary reason I continued on with the book.

Unbroken by her tumultuous past, she is pursuing a stable and secure future that doesn't include worrying about where the rent money will come from.

This story was okay, but not my favorite ofbrhevthrew. Something I've noticed in a few othwrbbook, is this false pride written into the female characters. Even when it's not truly believabe, the characters will reject support or help due to some phony ideal, that Western culture would never accept something "unearned," even when truly needed. Come on, in the real world this is insulting to women who will accept help when truly needed.

Quinn Caruthers has several problems: her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon. Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings - or even date - without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend - several years older - from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they're going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man - experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.

Why is it so popular to write the female leads as so Stupid with no self preservation instincts. It's my own damn fault for reading and continuing to hope the character would get a clue. Are all British women this naive? Really, the story would be much, much better if the female lead was a little brighter than a moon rock.

I read or listened a second time, hoping my first review was too harsh. I really do LOVE Miller, but Holy F**k, I now have a headache trying not to scream at Olivia. I do love the other characters. So why did you write Olivia in such a ridiculous manner. I couldn't be friends with such a person and definitely wouldn't want her with me in a desperate and emergency situation.

The storyline was decent, but Ava is really written as an irritating character. She's confusing, manipulative, worthless in life situations, entitled and immature. Jesse has a ton of issues, but he is so much more likeable.
