What do you do when you can't control your feelings for someone? When you know you shouldn't go there? Not even in your head.
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.
Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who's had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she's already in too deep. And Jack isn't only dangerous. He is forbidden
When your hard limit becomes your addiction.
Quite simply, that quote is me. I thought this genre was a hard limit for me, yet I devoured every single word of this novel. I couldn’t get enough of this illicit love story. Had I known the plot prior to starting I probably would have disregarded this title, no matter how much I love the author, because I feel so strongly about the subject matter. I would have disparaged a delectably, sinful passion that literally became my obsession. Ms. Malpas delivered an epic liaison, rife with yearning and ardor. I hate that I loved this journey as much as I did. How could something so wrong, be so right? The complexities of the situation were wonderfully illustrated and the lure of temptation exquisitely brought to light.
The love affair between Annie Ryan and Jack Joseph is a passion full of heartache and hope. It’s an intense romance ladened with lust, and riddled with deceit. I loved the intellectual level the author imposed in these characters and the inner dialogue helped me see a different side of something I was sure I wanted nothing to do with. The push and the pull of the hero and heroine was intoxicating. I loved the supporting cast as much as the mains, giving the reader an authentic dose of reality. I love it when an authors words not only make me feel, but force me to take a step out of myself and gain another perspective, causing me to question my perceptions of right and wrong.
I was always yours. Even when I didn’t know you. And you were always mine, it just took a while to find each other.
