Meet Damian Castillo. The man, the legend, the heartbreaker. As a self-proclaimed man-whore, Damian doesn’t believe in love or commitment. In fact, he can’t remember the last time he’s had feeling for a woman that went beyond hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only things he cares about are his bar, his appearance, and his needs.

But then he meets Alexis.

Meet Alexis Blythe. A small town girl that has lost a lot of love in her life. Wanting to leave her past behind her, she moves to San Francisco looking for a big change. Yet, despite everything she’s gone through, she still believes in true love.

But then she meets Damian.

When Alexis shows up at his bar, Damian’s caught by surprise. She’s different. She’s sweet, innocent, and feisty. But above all, this woman didn’t respond to his charm and piercing-blue eyes the way every other woman did. To Damian, she’s his ultimate challenge.

Could Alexis be the girl that will break through Damian’s wall of perpetual bachelorhood without getting hurt? Or will Damian remain true his ways and break Alexis’s heart and her hopes of true love?

My Review

Cocky, self-assured, handsome and unbearably charming... that is Damian. At least, that is the illusion Damian is a pro at presenting when you meet him. He keeps all emotions well hidden behind this impenetrable facade.

A chance encounter with his new neighbor Alexis sends him for a spin and then some. The instant chemistry cannot be denied. Damian being the way he is, makes it known that he is a fun guy, no commitments, entanglements, love them and leave them kind of guy.

Our two main characters cannot be more opposite. Alexis is looking to start a new life away from her ex-boyfriend, her small town life, and the loneliness of having lost her parents at a young age. She is trying to reach out for a new life where adventure is welcomed hand in hand with self-respect and pity is no longer the emotion people feel when they meet her.

Of course they are fated to be together. We are taken through the ups and downs of this blooming relationship and the learning curve of the "no commitment" Damian in his quest to discover how to love.

This is book 1 of our story. Book 2 - Taming Damian - is due out early in 2014. Lucky for us, as the end of book 1 leaves us with a surprise and a WTF!!! expletive in our mouths.

About the Author

Jessica Wood writes contemporary romance.

While she has lived in countless cities throughout the U.S., her heart belongs to San Francisco. To her, there’s something seductively romantic about the Golden Gate Bridge, the steep rolling hills of the city streets, the cable cars, and the Victorian-style architecture.

She loves a strong, masculine man with a witty personality. While she is headstrong and extremely independent, she can’t resist a man who takes control of the relationship, both outside and inside of the bedroom.

She loves to travel internationally, and tries to plan a yearly trip abroad. She also loves to cook and bake, and—to the benefit of her friends—she loves to share. She also enjoys ceramics and being creative with her hands. She has a weakness for good (maybe bad) TV shows; she’s up-to-date on over 25 current shows, and no, that wasn’t a joke.

And it goes without saying, she loves books—they’re like old and dear friends who have always been there to make her laugh and make her cry.

The one thing she wished she had more of is time.
