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.

    This was a great story with a touchy subject. It held my interest the whole way through. Much better than The Protector. Jodi can tell a wonderful story and this book didn't disappoint.

    I loved her series This Man before I read this book. But this story is very taboo and also amazing. The chemistry of the main characters you can feel it leave the page and capture you. You feel their attraction and their heartache. I found myself on the verge of tears and then smiling and cheering their lives. A great read. Recommend this book! You will love it!

  • Not my type of storyline

    By ChronoReader
    This story aimed to make you feel sympathetic for the main character, but I couldn't feel any sympathy at all. There was a clear lack of storyline development. There was a need for more dynamism between all of the characters. I was a bit bored reading...few parts of the storyline were novel.
  • Heart knows!

    Love this book! Hot read! Only your heart knows who you love even someone that may not be yours!
  • Great writer

    Not everyone will appreciate the story, but JEM can write. As always, I enjoyed her storytelling and appreciate the different perspective. Life is not always easy as Jack and Annie discovered.

    So disappointed. It was not the writing, but the content. I'm sad because this author is my favorite above E.L. James. I'm a married woman and I understand the dynamics of what you wanted to portray about their special love, however, personally did not enjoy reading about an affair. It was disturbing.
  • Great Story

    While it might stir a but of controversy it gives the other side of the story. I laughed, I cried....and boy I cried, but I really loved this story. Jodi Ellen Malpas nailed this story! Which is why she's one of my favorites!
