I never let anyone get too close—but he’s the only man who’s ever made me feel alive.
Meeting Jackson Steele was a shock to my senses. Confident and commanding, he could take charge of any room . . . or any woman. And Jackson wanted me. The mere sight of him took my breath away, and his touch made me break all my rules.
Our bond was immediate, our passion untamed. I wanted to surrender completely to his kiss, but I couldn’t risk his knowing the truth about my past. Yet Jackson carried secrets too, and in our desire we found our escape, pushing our boundaries as far as they could go.
Learning to trust is never easy. In my mind, I knew I should run. But in my heart, I never felt a fire this strong—and it could either save me or scorch me forever.

I didn't feel the connection between Jackson and Sylvia for a few reasons. Their relationship re-starts really badly and is missing intimate moments without sex. Jackson comes off as a complete jerk, but he does have some redeeming moments as the story progresses. Sylvia annoyed me a bit the way she runs away from Jackson. I guessed the big reveal fairly early in the story, so it is wasn't surprising at all. Overall the story is well written, and if you like a sexy, brooding alpha male, you will probably enjoy it. There are still more secrets to be revealed and I plan on read the next book in the series, On My Knees, to see how the story develops.
I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
