#1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day, America's premier author of provocative fiction, delivers the debut novel from Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin.The realization that Jax still affected me so strongly was a jagged pill to swallow. He'd only been part of my life for five short weeks two years ago. But now he was back. Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close. And God, he was magnificent. His eyes were a brown so dark they were nearly black. Thickly lashed, they were relentless in their intensity. Had I really thought they were soft and warm? There was nothing soft about Jackson Rutledge. He was a hard and jaded man, cut from a ruthless cloth.In that moment I understood how badly I wanted to unravel the mystery of Jax. Bad enough that I didn't mind how much it was going to cost me .
This was the first book I read from this author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I saw so much buzz about this book on Twitter, so I had to see what all the hype was. And I’m really happy that a took a chance on this! The story is about a second chance at love for Gia and Jax. They had a passionate love affair a year ago that ended badly, but now the two are thrown together again for business (and of course some pleasure). This is an adult romance novel, so there is some sex scenes but these are later in the book – so don’t think this author and book is just about sex! This is a really good story that will leave you wanting for more. And luckily the next book, Aftershock, will be released in November!I was disappointed that the book was only 102 pages. But for a short story it was so intense and sexy, that I could not put the book down! I rated this book 4 out of 5 stars because I wish it was longer. I’ve seen other reviewers give this book a 1 star because the book was short, but I don’t think that is justified. This was a great story and I recommend this book!
