WARNING: This is a white-hot, panty-melting, boundary-pushing read. Not intended for the faint of heart.
“You’re mine. You belong to me. You will always belong to me. Because no one has ever made you feel the way I have.”
Jackson Hawke might be a monster, but he’s Hannah’s monster. They belong together and she’s determined to show Jackson she can love every part of him-light and dark, cruel and gentle, lost soul and Dominant man.
Jackson knows he doesn’t deserve her. He is broken and twisted and wrong inside, but when Hannah touches him it feels right, he feels right in a way he hasn’t in so long.
Can a monster learn to become a man again? Or will dark forces from the past claim Hannah’s life before she can claim his heart?
* * Desperate Domination is the 3rd in the Bought by the Billionaire serial romance series and ends in a CLIFFHANGER. For maximum enjoyment it should be read after books one and two.* *
I am loving these books, but would rather read them as one book.
Review: Bought By The Billionaire 3: Desperate Domination
Desperate Domination by Lili Valente is the third book in her Bought by the Billionaire four-part serial.
The proverbial cat is out of the bag - no more mistaken identity. But now that Jackson doesn't have a reason to hate Hannah can he pull it together and truly feel for the woman who has the same face as the one he's hated for the past six years? As their bond together grows, the climate turns more dangerous. Threats loom. Jackson believes he is not a good man and now that he knows Hannah IS in fact Hannah, he doesn't feel he is worthy of her. Are his hands too stained with his crimes to allow their relationship to bloom?
I Love Where This Series Is Going
"How much of yourself are you willing to give up, Hannah? How much are you going to let me take before you draw the line?"
DESPERATE DOMINATION, the third book in this series, picks up right where the second left off. And, oh, how I had been waiting for this one, because my hair was standing on end at the end of Book 2, just waiting to see what Jackson Hawke had up his sleeve. And, in true Lili Valente fashion, she picked right back up with this mind-blower of a story and ran with it.
Just when it seems that Hannah and Jackson have reached a turning point in their twisted but crazily sexy and oddly romantic relationship, all bets are off. With one scene, Lili turns the mood of the story completely around, keeping me guessing with all of the shifts in action. Has Jackson realized who Hannah is? Is Hannah safe from Jackson? What will be the outcome for the two of them?
"Darkness made the light shine brighter, pain made pleasure that much sweeter, and what was the point of angels if not to save beautiful devils like Jackson Hawke?"
Jackson believes that he is beyond redemption, that nothing, not even Hannah's love, can change the man that he has become. Hannah, unwilling to write him off, trusts him with everything that she is, all of her deepest secrets. But when Jackson just can't forget about the past, a chain of events are set in motion that neither one could anticipate
And, there it is, THE END. I was not believing that Lili could do this again. This series is Cliffhanger Central, but I am not done, not nearly so. This book, like the rest of the series, is 5+ crazy, twisted, star-crossed, redemptive stars, and I cannot wait for DIVINE DOMINATION to answer all of my questions.
"Love and hate were opposite sides of the same coin and shared far more similarities than differences. They both came from the heart and the heart could be reasoned with, appealed to, even changed from time to time. The heart knew how to forgive, and as long as forgiveness was a possibility, hope was never beyond reach."
