I was born into luxury and used to getting what I wanted.
What I desired most, with my life in disarray, was the man who sat across from me.
He was tall, dark and handsome, but, most notably, forbidden.
It made every accidental touch more sinful and every session more addictive.
There was so much tragedy and he was supposed to fix me.
I shouldn’t have wondered how it would feel to be trapped under his broad shoulders.
I shouldn’t have focused on the way he licked his bottom lip every time his gaze dropped from mine and roamed my curves.
I shouldn’t have dreamed about him breaking the rules to comfort me the way I desperately needed.
I did though, and I was the first one to break.
He was my protector and my confidant and then he became my lover.
I teased him, tempted the two of us and now there’s no way to take it back.
With everything I've been through, I didn’t expect to fall for him.
There’s only so much heartache I can take.
This is book 2 in the Love The Way You series. Book 1, Kiss Me, must be read first.
Ella and Zander continue
The smoking hot story of Ella and Zander continues and goes deeper and darker. I wasn’t prepared to like these characters more than I did in the first book, but they are brought to new levels. I can’t wait to see what is next for them and am left unsure if they will ever get the HEA they deserve. All in all I have to say they grow on me the further their tale unfolds.
Hold on Tight
Hold Me continues where we left off with Kiss Me. Zander and Ella are playing a dangerous game. Their connection has been found out and now they both are suffering the consequences. Zander has been kicked off The Firm and Ella is finding that the one person she trusted the most was responsible for others finding out. Anger, betrayal and confusion surround Ella as she tries to pick up her life and start fresh. Now that they have been found out, Zander is not holding back. He knows what he wants and what he needs to do to help Ella be Ella again.
Ella is unsure of where she stands with Zander. She wants him to want her, but not only physically. As she works through her emotions of who and what she has lost, new discoveries of her past are revealed. Zander is determined to find out answers that may just reveal why Ella behaved and enjoyed being a exhibitionist.
More secrets and answers to those secrets will be revealed in Love Me (book 3).
Ella & Zander
This is book 2 of the LOVE THE WAY series. I received an ARC copy. The story continues with the D/s relationship between Ella and Zander. Ella had just been transferred from a psych facility into the custody of "The Firm" security/new psych therapy business for which Zander works. In book 1, Kiss Me, Zander learns that Ella had a D/s relationship with her deceased husband and feels that Ella will best heal under his care as a Dom. Book 2 continues with this preface and begins to answer questions that were left unanswered in book 1. Along the way, their relationship begins to turn more romantic, leaving Zander questioning his true feelings for Ella (as he has had a sad relationship past as well). As they begin to learn more about each other, will they be able to continue turning this D/s relationship to a forever love. The book ends with a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting to read book 3. Its a different story, but I found that the more I read Ella and Zander's story, I became more entranced. Pick up this series. You will be glad you did.
