Wanted (Most Wanted, #1)


For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me comes an all-new erotic series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.
He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.

My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.

And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same. 

“You called me Lina on the roof the other day,” I said softly. I felt suddenly, unreasonably exposed, and I crossed my arms over my chest.

“Did I? I suppose I thought it suited you.” He stroked his palms down my bare shoulders. “Do you like it?”

I hesitated. I should back off. I should say no; I should be Angie. “Yes,” I whispered as he closed his fingers over mine. “I liked it.”

“Me, too.” He stood up, then held out a hand for me. “Come here, Lina,” he said, gently pulling me to my feet. The robe hung open, and he pushed it off my arms, leaving me naked.

I fought the urge to bend down for the robe, but honestly, it didn’t take much effort. I wanted to be naked with this man. I wanted to be wild with him. I wanted to be Lina.

I could do this; I could take these three weeks. Because surely with Evan keeping me tethered, nothing would go horribly wrong.

“Come with me,” he said, then led me to the bedroom.

My Review

Do you remember your first love? You know, the one where you could not breathe, or walk, or talk every time you were in the same room? Remember how you knew it would be impossible for him to reciprocate your feelings because he was older? What would happen if that love didn't just fade away? This is the foundation for this book. A first love kept secret through the years. Each encounter just as swoon worthy as the last. One problem, our heroine Angie has made a promise to never make it real. How can you handle these feelings knowing you can never act on them?

Angie has barely survived losing her sister. Her uncle Jahn has been like a second father to her. She loves her parents but when she is with her uncle, she experiences a freedom and independence to be herself she is unable to attain around her parents. Of course, spending time at her uncle Jahn's also means she can see Evan. She can dream that her love for him is mutual. She can fantasize and hope that maybe someday they will be together.

Evan keeps his feelings locked away in his self-denial. He also has made a promise to Jahn not to encourage Angie. Jahn is his mentor and has provided him support he never could have imagined from a stranger. He owes Jahn and he will keep his promise. This is easier said than done. Now that Jahn has passed away, will Angie and Evan be held to the promises they made to stay away from each other?

Our story is full of excitement, thrills, and mystery, with a twist of, dare I say it, illegal endeavors. Nothing is as it seems. Angie is determined to uncover the secrets Jahn and Evan have kept from her. What ensues is a delightful, passionate, and totally entertaining story that will keep you glued to this book. In spite of all the comings and goings, Angie finally finds her true voice and comes to terms with herself.

For those of you familiar with our author, you should note this book is as erotic and fascinating as her last unbeatable effort The Stark Trilogy.  Enjoy this new series!
