It’s been years since brilliant IT consultant Olivia James, fell for a man who had a deeply hidden compulsion to violence and control. Left healing physically and emotionally, she became a shadow of the confident woman she used to be. That is, until she meets Ethan O’Connell, a man who makes her burn with a powerful desire. Haunted by fear and insecurity, she desperately tries to resist him, doing all the right things to protect her heart, but she is betrayed by her desires and her attraction to confident men. With stubborn perseverance, he ignores her attempts to push him away, leaving her wanting, desiring his love, needing it to feel alive and whole.
Ethan O’Connell is extremely successful in his businesses, with a seriously sexy Irish accent and a lethal kind of flare and charm. More than any one man should ever possess. Ethan knew, from the very first moment that he saw her that she is meant to be his. Used to getting the things he wants, he is determined to have her and struggles to control his Irish temper, the reason for his own troubled past. Olivia James is the woman that makes him want more, the kind of girl that would make any man think about forever. Afraid that he can’t live without her and unwilling to lose her, he hides his secrets and ignores his dark desires and fantasies of control.
Eccentric Psychic, Eva Storm is drawn to the energy around them. She knows that they are soul mates bound by past lives and helps the universe steer them together. Ethan is hesitant to believe at first, but there are things he can’t ignore. Things he couldn’t possibly know, but does. Neither of them can deny the dreams and memories that they both share, but Olivia is too afraid to believe and not willing to trust her heart.
Convinced that she is “THE ONLY ONE” for him, Ethan refuses to walk away, vowing that he will never give up on her, even if it means he has to fight hard enough for both of them. Can he control his temper and his needs in order to keep her in his life? Can she heal her past wounds and let him in? Like no other woman in his life, Olivia challenges him with her strong will and sharp sense of humor, making him wonder if she could ever become a willing captive of his dominance. Ethan hopes with all his heart that she will become equally addicted to his love, and a sneaky suspicion that falling in love with Olivia James is about to bring on a shift in the balance of power in his world.
Where to start? This book was jammed pack with emotions and was one hell of a roller coaster ride. Although it was one roller coaster ride that was great and I didn't want it to end. I am highly anticipating the second book already.
The story is based on Olivia and IT consultant and Ethan an successful established business man.
Lets start with Olivia.
At times I found myself wanting to have a love hate relationship with Olivia and how stubborn she could be. I do fully understand where she is coming from and her reason for being so timid and reserved. But wow she really does have a mind of her own.
Did I mention Ethan is based on an smoking hot Irish man, with a sexy accent to go with it? My main problem with Ethan is he was always used to getting his way, so to be told no, or someone didn't agree I felt myself feeling like I was dealing with the tantrums of my toddler. I really do think it's possible I had a love hate relationship with both main characters in this book.
The two main character had their own love hate relationship going on at times. Along with secrets. Secrets never make a good relationship, it's always better to come clean. This book kept me very intrigued and I felt like I never knew what was going to happen in the next chapter.
I did feel like the author made all the characters believable and I felt I could connect with each and every one of them. Each character had a personality all of their own that was well wrote out and defined. All the relationships were well thought out and all made sense.
Now to the ending.......
It left me wanting more. And by more I mean now! I need answers. I need to know what is going to happen.
I would highly suggest to anyone who loves books based on two great main characters, that is well written and thought out with a great developed plot to pick up this book.
Tricia Daniels lives in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada, where she raised three kids as a single parent. Creativity and imagination is something there is never a short supply of in her home. Between her quick wit and wicked sense of humor she found that she has a passion for writing steamy romance novels. Her goal is simple, tell her story, warm a few hearts, shed a few tears, share a silent chuckle, and occasionally, make people blush. That's the official version. But the simple truth is... I'm just a normal woman, struggling to pay the bills and trying to raise my kids in a home where they feel empowered, supported and loved.
