***Amber -#NerdGirlAmbz’s  Review***
In this book we follow Lexi and Ryan. Lexi is a twenty one year old basket case. The horrors of her past plague her present. She had witnessed many horrific things in her upbringing. A drug addicted mother who had an abusive boyfriend haunt her dreams. Ryan is labeled as one of Seattle’s most eligible bachelors. Charismatic and handsome. The last thing Lexi ever expected was to meet a man who could make her walls come crumbling down.

I loved this book. I have to admit it had a 50 shades of Grey feel to it, but with some twists and turns. I loved how the author put you directly into Lexi’s POV. Her writing was so incredibly written that you yourself feel as if you were apart of the story! I absolutely LOVE that. From the amazing characters to the unbelievable plot line and the unpredictable twists, this book was hands down alluringly incredible! I honestly could not put the book down. 5 stars across the board!! I can NOT wait to read the next book in this series! Bravo Jade!! I applaud you!
