Product Description

Jasmine Nichols is a control freak.

When she graduates from college as valedictorian with a degree in social services, her friend and mentor Jill Swanson offers her a job, but with one condition. She has to take two weeks off and just have fun. Taking the instructions to heart, Jasmine goes to a club called Debauchery and has a sizzling encounter with a sexy stranger.

Ex-pro football player Gabriel Johnson is done playing the field.

Gabe is tired of meaningless relationships, but when he meets a mysterious, beautiful, blue-eyed blonde at Debauchery and the chemistry is undeniable, he knows he’s finally found the one. What he didn’t expect was for her to freak out and run off.

Jasmine thought she made a clean getaway, so needless to say, she’s shocked when she finds herself face to face with the hot guy from the club once again.

He’s Jill’s. Half. Brother.

Gabe wants to pick up right where they left off and doesn’t waste any time convincing her. Jasmine’s blown away by the intensity of their relationship. How can she control something that makes her feel so wild and uninhibited?

But Jasmine can’t handle the pressure.

First, she’s confronted with old insecurities. Then suddenly, her brother has a secret he’ll only share with Gabe, the father who abandoned her shows up—at Gabe’s instigation—and a professional tragedy is the last straw.

What happens when it all falls apart?

Is being with Gabe more than she can handle?

By I.Heart.Romance - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
⭐️ 3 Stars⭐️

♦️WRITING: good but on the simplistic side - 'I did this. He did that. I wore this.'

♦️EDITING: good - very few errors found

♦️POV: dual first person

♦️HERO: Gabriel "Gabe" Johnson, 38--Real estate flipper. Retired football player. 6'4 with dark chocolate eyes, beard, dark hair past his chin that he sometimes wears in a man-bun. Sweet yet very intense with a short temper.

♦️HEROINE: Jasmine Nichols, 22--Recent college graduate, newbie Social worker. Lingerie model. Blonde hair, blue eyes, 5'10, curvy size 12/14. A bit of a pushover, needs to stand up for herself more, stop allowing others to bulldoze her.
"Of course I’d like to tell him to eff off, but I won’t because that’s just not my style."

♦️PLOT: After working very hard to graduate with a master's degree in social work, Jasmine goes to a club to celebrate and 'live a little', where she has a very brief steamy encounter with a mystery man. Days later, her friend Jill introduces Jasmine to her brother, Gabe...the mystery man from the club. They begin dating, meet each other's families, fall in love. Jasmine begins her career as a social worker, but after a case ends in tragedy, her absentee father returns and her gay twin brother is beaten in a hate crime, she can't deal. Feeling lost, Jasmine quits her job and her relationships splinter.

➖sweet romance
➖Jasmine's mother was a wonderful character. Due to a brain infection after Jasmine's birth causing irreversible damage, her mother now suffers from mental disabilities. She has a sweet innocence about her and loves her children dearly.
➖great epilogue
➖realistic characters

➖inconsistencies. At the beginning, Jasmine has golden blonde hair and blue eyes, but a few pages later her eyes are mossy green and hair is platinum blond.
➖everyone stutters in this book when they are upset or nervous
➖Jasmine feels like she needs to make things right with her dad, brother and Gabe, apologize, beg their forgiveness but she's the one that was wronged. She deserves some groveling, them begging for her forgiveness. He father bailed when she was a baby, her brother SLAPS her because she called him out on his whoring ways and in the middle of a tragedy, Gabe throws her out. This girl is 22 years old, she deserved a little understanding from him, instead he acts extremely immature, even going as far as trying to make her jealous by telling her he's going on a date. So what does Jasmine do? She goes to the club where he's gonna be on his date to say goodbye and to thank him...umm, what?? Have some self respect, women!

♦️STEAM LEVEL: hot, 3.5/5 - several quick, average sex scenes...except that Gabe likes to squeeze her throat and call her a s!ut.

♦️WARNINGS, TAGS & STUFF: dominate H, oral sex, hair pulling, throat squeezing, clothes ripping, sex in a public place, name calling, dirty talking, homosexuality, hate crime, weak h, marijuana use

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book from Evan Grace!! 11 September 2015
By Mama She's Crazy About Books Blog - Published on
My 4 star review of Gabe
I really enjoyed this story from Evan Grace. It was rather refreshing to read a new to me author, I love when I find a good author I have never read before. It makes me want to read all the other books they have written. This story from Evan was well thought out, and took enough twists and turns for me to be happy.
Jasmine Nichols is the heroine. She is such a strong woman, with a good head on her shoulders. She graduated from college with a degree in social services. Her friend, and mentor- the one who made her want to be a social worker- Jill, offers her a job. But the only stipulation Jill has, is that Jasmine take off, live a little and have some fun in her life. Jasmine is not like that at all. But she ends up going to a club, and has a smoking hot run in with a stranger, that changes her course in life forever.
Gabriel Johnson is the hero. And he is done. Gabe is an ex-pro football player and is so sick of the dumb one night stands, and meaningless relationships he could puke. He doesn’t have time for it and doesn’t welcome it into his life. After mulling over his life, he decides to go out to a club, the same one where Jasmine is, and you can see where this is going. They collide, and Gabe knows that without a doubt, he has found the one- the steam heat bursting off the both of them, is enough to ignite a fire. But after the night is over Jasmine bolts! Only what Jasmine doesn’t know, is that Gabe is her mentor’s half brother!! So she will be seeing more of him!!
I loved Gabe's quiet passion, he knows what he wants, and he gets it. He was totally the perfect guy- even had that touch of alpha to him. He just had to calm the beast that was inside Jasmine, wake her up for her to realize she needs him. And I was uber happy to know, the heroine wasn’t perfect. She had a crazy life at some points; she was also described as a size 12, which isn’t model stick thin! Love that.
I enjoyed all the elements of this story, and can’t wait for more in this series. I think some of the secondary characters have a story there- hint, JILL!! I was granted an ARC for an honest review!

3.0 out of 5 stars If you love hot, sexy scenes and lots of dirty talk, this book is definitely for you. 1 September 2015
By goodem - Published on
If you love hot, sexy scenes and lots of dirty talk, this book is definitely for you.

Jasmine Nichols has worked her ass off preparing herself to graduate with her degree in social work. Having had an amazing social worker and friend in Jill, herself, Jasmine immediately takes her best pal up on the offer to work alongside her changing the lives of the youth in need. However, Jill's one condition... Two week breather where Jasmine lets go and has fun. Enter in Gabe, Jill's incredibly attractive, dirty talking older brother and the story gets HOT QUICK. Hold on to your panties ladies cause Gabe likes to play dirty!

One thing I can say without a doubt about this book is it has some incredibly hot scenes and some smooth talking from one hot older brother. However, it never really grabbed my attention after that. I'm a quality sex over quantity and this book just had a bit much for me. I wanted more story, more angst, and some build up to the sex scenes.

I think Grace is on her way to a great story on this book. Story line has potential. Characters are interesting and with a little more tweaking this series could be great. One thing is for sure, Grace can work her way around a great sex scene and that's not an easy task!

In regards to Gabe, steamy scenes, and sizzle factor I easily give this one a 4 star. But, on the flip side I still need some more buildup in the story and to the great scenes to truly give up my stars. For this reason, I am going to meet in the middle with 3 stars!

3.0 out of 5 stars ... and already has a job lined up with her best friend and social worker who saved her 26 September 2015
By ReadingforMoms - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This story is about Jasmine who just graduated from college and already has a job lined up with her best friend and social worker who saved her. Her mother wasn't able to take care of Jasmine and her twin brother. I will not tell you why because if you want to know you should read the book. Jasmine felt like she had to grow up fast and everyone is always telling her to have fun. She goes out one night and meets Gabe who happens to be her best friends brother. Gabe fights for what he wants through the whole book I like him. Some of the dialogue in the book was unrealistic and didn't make sense. I didn't get some of the characters like Jasmine's brother his behavior was fake to me. Jasmine I didn't care too much for her she was boring, insecure, and immature. She was a quitter and doesn't listen to anyone but herself. All in all the book started out okay then the dialogue made it go downhill from there. If you like a story about a girl who thinks everyone will break her heart and has trust issues this is the book for you. There is also an alpha male if you like that sort of thing too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best way I can describe this book without going overboard ... 10 September 2015
By Ink Angels Book Blog - Published on
Ink Angels Book Blog received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The best way I can describe this book without going overboard is HOT! It was steamy from the beginning and did not let up until the end. I absolutely enjoyed every page. Even the drama held it together nicely.

Scanning the synopsis, I knew Gabe was going to be a total alpha male character (a trait I love in books), so I was excited to start reading. Jasmine was just a doll and I enjoyed how the two of them fit so well.

Grace did an amazing job with their story. Gabe was my first ever look into this author's work and I was not disappointed. I can only imagine that the books to follow in this series are going to be simply fantastic.
