He will give her everything she's ever wanted . . .

The only rule? He makes the rules.
Lana gives up her control, letting Jack take her body however he needs, while she works her way into his heart. But Jack's past catches up to them and Lana finds herself wrapped up in a scheme that will expose every secret she's worked so hard to keep. She clung to Jack once when her world was crashing down, but this time, she loves him. She'll continue to reach for him - her only fear is if he'll reach back, or go on his way, taking her soul with him . . .

"You look flushed," he said, his tone so raspy it made me want to tell him why.
"I was just thinking of something," I whispered, my gaze zeroing in on his mouth.
"Oh?" He took one step closer. "Care to share your thoughts?"
I licked my lips . . . ready to share more than just the thoughts. He'd said earlier he wondered what I
tasted like. I was wondering the same about him.
"Is it easy for you? Telling the truth?" I asked.
"How? Not that I lie, but I just don't know how you can say what you say."
"You mean voice what I want?"
"Yes." It was then it hit me. I wanted that. To be able to say what I wanted. Put a voice to my fears. My desires. My everything. To have someone actually listen.
"It's a matter of worth over value," he said. "Any given thing has a value. I just decide what it's worth to me to keep that value."
He took a step forward.
"For example, you have a value. My silence wasn't worth you walking away."
This was my first book by Joya Ryan and I was not disappointed in the least.
Love me some broken souls, fighting their demons and this book serves this up in spades.
I was totally gripped from the start, this author just had a way of drawing me in and not letting me go until I was rung out, reeling and thinking WTF!!!!!
Lana & Jack crackle with desire in the bedroom but almost crack under the strain out of it, they’re both holding back, not giving all of themselves for fear of the repercussions. Jack is one intense guy and he pushes Lana out of her comfort zone and gains her trust bit by bit, it’s gripping, suspenseful, off the charts hot and leaves you wanting more all the damn way through.
Joya deals with some dark issues in this book and I wasn’t sure Jack & Lana’s relationship was entirely healthy considering their pasts but there really was beauty in what they offered each other and I was itching for them to get their HEA and then, THEN…………………a freaking cliffhanger!!!!!!
I cannot believe I’m recommending a cliff hanger but this book is THAT good, it may chew you up & spit you out but gahhhh it’s worth every hot, steamy, angst filled minute!!!
