New York Times bestselling author Jasinda Wilder presents the second novel starring the mysterious Madame X.
My name is Madame X.
My life is not my own.
But it could be...
Everything Madame X has ever known is contained within the four walls of the penthouse owned by her lover—the man who controls her every move and desire.
While Caleb owns her body, someone else has touched her soul. X’s awakening at the hands of Logan’s raw, honest masculinity has led her down a new path, one that is as exciting as it is terrifying.
But Caleb’s need to own X completely knows no bounds, and he isn’t about to let her go. Not without a fight that could destroy them all...
Fans may rank this second entry in Wilder's intensely erotic Madame X series above the previous one, as it delves more compellingly into X's identity and her burgeoning desire for independence. The cause of her amnesia becomes a matter of greater distress when X begins to have flashbacks that contradict what her multimillionaire boss/rescuer/lover/warden Caleb Indigo has told her. After she befriends Rachel, one of Caleb's so-called apprentices (who are actually prostitutes), X witnesses a scene of brutal sex between Caleb and Rachel. The charged confrontation between X and Caleb that follows propels her straight into the arms of another man. Much of the book is written in the second person, as if it's a letter from X to Caleb, and it gives the narrative an uncomfortable intimacy, particularly when his psychological brutality sends her reeling. More so than in Madame X (2015), the consequences of Caleb's dark possessiveness and how it affects X are vividly drawn as she takes tentative steps toward an autonomy she has never known.

5 months until you release the ending? I seldom let myself read trilogies because there are always publishers who think they can keep you wanting...... But it is, in my case, a very big mistake. I love the stories you tell but would be willing to pay more to have the entire story all at once! Now by August I will have forgotten the first two and will at least have to re-read them to be ready for the third. This makes me very sad and I read to make me feel happy.......
Left total distracted for a day as I read and read and read till I finished the book in a day and a half. So captivating and a unique twist to a dark romance.
I am sure you bought this book expecting answers after yet another teasing cliffhanger. Won't get none here... Just endless inner dialogue, chapter length (unsexy) sex scenes & ridiculous, non eventful, fluff. I am so annoyed I spent the money & the time. Capitalism as it worst. Enough content for one book so they add filler and minutiae to eke out the financial rewards of the trilogy. Save your money & get something else...
