Read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited: AmazonAbigail I was in big trouble. The biggest. Running out of time, I turned to him. Jacob Winters promised he’d solve all my problems. All I had to do was become his pet. With some men, that kind of deal might have been a nightmare. Jacob Winters was a dream come true. I was raised to be a lady, not a man’s plaything. But with Jacob, I almost had it all; pleasure like I’d never known and protection from the danger stalking me. Was it greedy to want more? I had his body, but I wanted his heart. I told myself it was just sex. We were providing each other a mutual service, nothing more. Right? I couldn’t possibly be foolish enough to fall in love with him. Jacob I must have been crazy. I’d wanted Abigail for years, I won’t deny it. But I don’t pursue married women, and her husband was a disaster waiting to happen. Everything about Abigail warned me to steer clear, including the lady herself. Some women might cheat, but not her. Abigail was too noble for her own good. Beautiful and untouchable. Then her husband was murdered and every dark shadow he’d held back came after Abigail at once. She was on the run, and I was the only man who could save her. The best things come to men who wait, and I’d been waiting. Abigail was mine. I didn’t want a girlfriend. I definitely didn’t need a wife. I just wanted her. In my home. In my bed. I was going to own every inch of her elegantly curved body. I’d keep her for as long as I wanted her, and then we’d both walk away. What could possibly go wrong?
About Ivy LayneIvy Layne has had her nose stuck in a book since she first learned to decipher the English language. Sometime in her early teens, she stumbled across her first Romance, and the die was cast. Though she pretended to pay attention to her creative writing professors, she dreamed of writing steamy romance instead of literary fiction. These days, she’s neck deep in alpha heroes and the smart, sexy women who love them. Married to her very own alpha hero (who rubs her back after a long day of typing, but also leaves his socks on the floor). Ivy lives in the mountains of North Carolina where she and her other half are having a blast raising two energetic little boys. Aside from her family, Ivy’s greatest loves are coffee and chocolate, preferably together.
This was a great romance story that had that spark that keeps your interest from the beginning. The characters are definitely interesting – you have one exciting and hot alpha billionaire named Jacob Winters and the heroine named Abigail-now she is in trouble from Big Bad John Jordan and the only person she could think of that could help was Jacob. And this is how the story begins. There is intrigue, mystery, romance, passion, action and some heartbreak.
What I loved about Abigail is her love for her mom. She took what she had , her body, and used it to bargain to help her mom and keep her safe. This is how she gets Jacob’s help, only thing is in the process, she starts falling for him. Jacob had feelings for Abigail and sees an opportunity to get Abigail where he wants her and seizes it. There are many twists and turns which was awesome; I also enjoyed the supporting characters in this story which also added another level of flavor to this romantic read. I loved the ending which had me really psyched on this new series and I cannot wait for book 2 which features the supporting characters Vance and Magnolia
My rating: 4.5 stars ****
