What if the person who stole your heart wasn't who you thought they were?

When my parents passed away, I grew up fast. Learning to stand on my own two feet has been a challenge, but I'm making it... my way. I make no apologies for the path I've chosen. My choices have served me well, but no one knows the real me.

Except one man.

He's a mystery to me. He's controlling, demanding, and he has me wrapped around his little finger. Anything he wants, I'll give it to him. The hours we share together aren't about love. It's just sex. Hot, dirty, passionate sex. It was never supposed to be anything more than that.

Until everything changed.

Now, I'm more confused than ever. The more I learn about him, the less I seem to understand. What I do know is that I'm falling, and I have the feeling when I land, it's going to hurt.

Just when Josephine “Joe” Hart thought, she found a bit of happiness in her life, it all comes tumbling down, leaving her to put the pieces of her heart back together.

Josephine has been through a lot in her young life by the time she turns eighteen she has lost both her parents and has no other family. She is alone on her own; she will do what it takes to survive and to follow her dreams. If that means stripping to make ends meet and pay for her college, then so, be it. She never expected to fall for anyone that was not in her plans. Her mystery man takes her on the most sensual ride of her life for filling sexual fantasies she didn’t even know she had. The sex is hot, dirty, and passionate but it’s just sex. Until real lives are exposed and feelings shared, things become complicated. He wants her, but he has secrets she wants him, but she has secrets. What happens when you find out the man you had decided to give everything to your mind, body and soul turns out not to be the man you thought he was?

My Review:

Oh, my I cannot say enough about this book. Let me start with hot, dirty sex in all kinds of places. This is not what I have grown to expect from J.C. Valentine. I have read a few of her books and this one goes in a completely different direction. The male character is a mystery from the beginning to the end, even when a huge twist is revealed in the cliffhanger we still don’t know what he his deal is. Yes, there is a cliffhanger and it's okay because J.C. Valentine warns us from the beginning this is a three part series so we have to expect a cliffhanger. Did I expect this one, Hell NO! I did not! Holy cow, what a crazy story this turned out to be!

Josephine has issues no question, she loses her mother at a young age to cancer her father falls apart after and Joe is left to take care of him until his death when she is eighteen. Not a great life so far for our heroine, so it's not surprising that her life choices are a little off. She’s a stripper, and in her profession, she meets all kinds of men. One day one of them propositions her and she starts on a sexual adventure that blows her mind. Secrets come to light, hearts are broken and confused. I don’t want to give away too much of the story because I absolutely hate spoilers. Therefore, I will say this is a very well written story that kept my attention from the very first dance and continued to keep it until the last. The sex scenes are steamy, sensual, and sometimes emotional. The male character is an arrogant jerk sometimes and a sort of decent guy the next, but the mystery he projects makes us care about who he is or could be. Josephine has a lot to work out by the end of this first installment and I can’t wait to find out where the author will take us.
