Wanted: A Most Wanted Novel by J. Kenner
I received this book from the publisher through netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.
My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.
And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.
Review: If this is only the first in a trilogy I say bring it on. Hot sexy dangerous men and the story had a plot! It was actually a lot of plot. By the end of the book that I wasn't sure I wanted to end, I felt like the characters were old friends and I was sad to see them go. The only good part is that since this is supposed to be a series I'm hoping I get to see them again in the next book.
This book started off slow and steady and then built up leaving you wanting to strangle the author into letting these two people get together already. The build up was worth the wait though. It helped build the story and even made it a tad more plausible than most romance novels.
Evan and his friends are supposedly dangerous, but danger really can be a relative term when it comes to people. Sometimes the people you think are safe are actually the most dangerous because they feel righteous in their motives. Sure makes you think.
