I’m J.D. Wilder, and it takes a lot to shame me, but we’re about to see where you draw the line.
Gabrielle Duval once belonged to me.
And like it or not, she’ll be mine again.
In a world where money, power and corruption rule, I’m prepared to do whatever it takes.
Although nothing with that woman is ever easy.
But believe me when I tell you, I’ll enjoy every minute of the fight.
My Review: 4 stars
Possible Spoilers and Cliffhanger Alert!
This is my first book from Eva Charles and I can say I was not disappointed!
Gabrielle never expected JD (Julian) Wilder to re-enter her life. After years of being apart, and not by her doing, he randomly shows back up the night his father wins the presidency.
Gabrielle has known JD since she was little. Her mom used to work for his family. But she knows he is up to no good when he walks into her hotel. And she was right.
JD Wilder always gets what he wants and he wants Gabrielle back in his life for more than one reason. He gives her a business proposition, one he knows won’t turn down because someone she loves depends on this deal.
Gabrielle agrees to the proposition but things don’t work out the way JD plans.
Gabrielle is not happy about this proposition but does what she needs to do for a person she loves. But Gabrielle doesn’t know the entire story. She doesn’t know the main reason JD showed back up. And he won’t completely tell her.
But what happens when random, weird things start happening around Gabrielle’s hotel? Will JD be able to find out who is messing with Gabrielle or will it be to late?
I really liked the characters in this story. I think they had great character development. JD comes off as an ass but he really does have a good heart. Gabrielle is such a sweetheart but she is also a very strong women.
There are a few parts of the book that could be hard to read if you can’t handle “dark” reads.
I can not wait for the second book to see how this story ends!
About the Author:
A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.
A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.
Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.
When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.
