I moved to New York for a fresh start. I did not move here to fall for a man like Sebastian.

Sebastian Black came into my life like a storm in the peak of the night…dark, raging, all-consuming, and guaranteed to leave destruction in his wake. From the moment our eyes met, he had a hold on me. I wanted, craved, and needed him like nothing I had ever desired before.

The problem was he needed total submission. From the moment he handed me the contract, I knew what he was proposing would destroy me. What I had not planned was his ability to make me crave destruction. I would lose myself in him. Sebastian knew how to take me over the edge, and before I even knew it, I wanted to go free-falling.

It was evident that my past had the ability to destroy us. What I had not calculated was the power of his to do the same. My dark, brooding, impeccably sexual, alpha-male had his own crosses to bear. I was not sure I was strong enough to handle them, or the woman who helped chain him there.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***

 All I want for Christmas this year is Sebastian Black. He is the new Christian Grey in my opinion. This book by Kandice Michelle Young will leave you with a severe book hangover and you dying to know what happens next with Sebastian and Danielle (Dani).

I could not put this book down. It grabbed me from the beginning and it didn’t let go. I’m convinced that it still has a hold on me. All I can think about right now is this book. The story is great. It takes two people who couldn’t be more different and throws them together in a way that you can see spells heartbreak. You can feel the sexual tension coming off the pages when the two of them are together. You can feel Dani’s frustration at Sebastian’s secretiveness. The story is written so well that you feel like you’re in the book. You feel like you are Dani. I love it. I love that I can feel mad at Geoff for being an ass instead of telling her  how he feels. I love that I feel sad when Sebastian yet again leaves Dani for Alana. I love that I hate Alana. I hate her just as much I as I hated Elena Lincoln and I hope that in book two, we find out just what kind of hold she has on Sebastian.

Dani is a great female character. She is doing just find on her own until she meets Sebastian, and then her world is just flipped upside down. She gets on this roller coaster relationship train with him and you can feel the whiplash that their relationship goes through. And I couldn’t help but hope that she would get a happily ever after. Dani is fierce and independent, but she’s also in need of the dom/sub relationship that Sebastian offers.

Sebastian. Oh good Lord, Sebastian Black. He can set a woman’s panties on fire just by breathing. He’s an alpha male with a dark past, a past that we don’t know much about. Sebastian is used to getting what he wants and then moving on when he’s achieved what he wants. Dani sparks something in him that makes him want more. But his secrets with Alana are always getting in the way. I felt like smacking him upside the head a few times when he would leave Dani to be with Alana. I hope that in book two we find out more about these secrets that they share and just why Alana is in Sebastian’s life.

The book is available for pre-order. I highly highly suggest that you do yourselves a favor and one-click it so that in February, you’ll have it waiting for you. It’s a book that has many twists and turns and you won’t guess half of what happens. The book does in on an abrupt cliffhanger, but it’s done very well. I cannot wait for the next book. I need it like tomorrow!
