When betrayal is the only path to love, life is destined to be changed forever. ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY 99 CENTS!
This isn’t your typical story about boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. No. This is a story about deception and betrayal at its finest. This is a story about hatred and attraction, which does everything in its power to destroy two people.
Essie Horton is a woman who has lived through unspeakable things during her short life, and when a prime opportunity presents itself, she dives right in, only concerned about herself and her objectives.
Drayden Warner is a man used to living the good life, bedding every beauty in sight, masking an empty existence, and hiding from a tragedy which happened years ago. Little does he know, his life will change forever when he meets the one woman who will possibly destroy him for good.
Contact of any sort with him is dangerous. I want so much to be unaffected by him, to truly hate him, but I just can’t. I’m drawn to him on some weird level. I fight it, put on a good show, but in the end, he has this inexplicable power over me. And I think he knows it, too.
“What do you want?” I ask flippantly, aiming for indifference. He sits down in the chair and tugs me onto his lap. My arm rubs against his chiseled chest while his scent infiltrates my defenses.
Fuck. I’m in some serious shit here.
“When I tell you to do something, Essie, you best do it the first time I say or else.” His arm wrapped around my waist is holding me in place so I don’t attempt to get away from him. His other arm is running up and down my leg, his hand teasing my burning flesh.
“You are not the boss of me, Drayden. You can’t order me around and expect me to comply.” I’m trying my best to control my breathing. I can’t give way to the fact that my body is betraying me.
“I own you, Essie. For the foreseeable future, you belong to me and you will do whatever I say, whenever I say it. If you refuse, then there will be consequences.”
“What?” I say as I look at him with disbelief. “No one owns me, you bastard!” I struggle to get free but his punishing hold on me is too tight. “Let me go!” I shout.
“You can fight me, but I will always win. Always.” His hold remains strong, never wavering. There is no hope in getting away from him, not right now. My best plan is to remain still, let him do or say what he came here for and be done with it for tonight.
5 Stars! This was sooooo good. Beautiful, powerful, epic read.
Even when I thought I hated you, Essie, I loved you.
I consumed this book in one sitting. Loved every word. Debut novel….all I can say OMG!
Betrayal, heartache, lust, acceptance, love….so many different feelings with this book.
You instantly fall in love with Drayden. With his stubborn mood swing sexy self. The book is like no other I have read. Amazing, beautiful and brilliant. BUT there is not a thing I can tell you because it would spoil it for you…big time. You just have to read it and find out for yourself. Don’t worry though you still get a HUGE HEA and I LOVED the epilogue.
