Jessica Stanley is comfortable in her orderly life as a paralegal at a high end law firm. Having dated her fair share of liars and manipulators, Jessica views men through a pair of thick, cynical lenses. Men are good for one thing in her eyes, and one thing only.
Her predictable life is thrown into a whirlwind of new experiences when she meets a dominating man at a casual dinner with friends.
Royce Bradford is a man of intent and is used to getting his way. Until he meets Jessica. She is wound tight, and he finds himself yearning to unravel her secrets and her passions.
Jessica declares their relationship casual. She’s tempted by his seductive tone and unusually powerful demeanor to give him that much. But for Royce, it’s not enough. He wants more.
Except Jessica has built a secret tomb around her heart, and it will take a lot more than sensual play times and verbal commands for him to be allowed entrance. Royce never backs down from his desires. He takes up the challenge to seek out her Hidden Heart.
My 4 star review
Jessica Stanley is so comfortable keeping everybody at arm’s length that is has become second nature and now has a hard time letting anyone get any closer. She is a paralegal at a law firm where her boss is a total capital D, Douchebag. Men are no longer in her vocabulary, so much so that all she needs is one of her books and her battery operated friend. Oh and a glass of wine too.
Royce Bradford, now here is a man that gets what he wants. He is an "I take shit from no one kind of man", which I like. Then he meets Jessica at a dinner while out with his co-worker. And the chemistry is palpable.
But I will not spoil this flirtatious, hot, steamy, sexy book for you. Just take my word for it that Hidden Heart is so hot I had to fan myself throughout reading it. And it was such an easy read and very easy to get lost in its pages. I couldn’t help feeling torn when I got to the last chapter. Only because I knew it would be over in a matter of minutes and I wasn’t ready for it to be over yet.
I could read about Jessica and Royce all day long. They are super cute. I liked Jessica's character a lot that at times I felt I was her and well, all I wanted to do was be a good girl for Royce. What!? I am not going to lie. He can tell me what to do and boss me around any day. I am a big girl. I can take what he dishes out!
Measha Stone I love this book and can’t wait for book 2, Secured Heart to come out.
Which is coming Fall 2014...Yay!!!
