From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Breathless Trilogy comes the first novel in the Enforcers series—a bold new direction in erotic romance that explores the games men and women play, and the price they’re willing to pay for pleasure.
What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.
She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.
What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.
The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.
The night started out with Evangeline's girlfriends getting her all prettied up and looking gorgeous to go to the club with a VIP pass to hopefully run into her ex there to make him see what exactly he messed up, ended up taking a strange twist. That's when she meets Drake.
Evangeline has the worst self esteem and Drake proves to her over and over again just how beautiful she really is. It took a lot for Drake to finally gain Evangeline's total trust beings she just had a really bad break up and has always looked down upon herself in general. But she eventually gives Drake all of her. But what she wants in return, she may never have. She wants Drake. Not his money, not his extravagant gifts, she just wants him.
Things take a strange twist. Drake is having a "business meeting" at the house and well, I won't give too much away but Evangeline wanted to surprise him. He wants her no where near these horrible people he is meeting with. What he does to her is incredibly horrible when they show up and she is there. Apparently he didn't have a choice and was "protecting"
I'm looking forward to book 2 especially because Maya doesn't really go much into what Drake actually does... We get a little bit at the end when he's at his meeting but I'm dying to see what Drake does to try and get Evangeline back. I was definitely left wanting more. I'm looking forward to book 2!
