Jade has had a horrific upbringing, her mother died during childbirth leaving her in the system and moved from foster home to foster home. Never feeling loved or cared for by another, she hoped that someone would adopt her and she would find happiness. If Jade thought her life was bad before it's nothing compared to what she is about to endure every day with M.
Brock grew up very differently to Jade, he has two parents and a sibling. He comes from wealth, runs a the family business and is free to do what he likes. He's living life as any good looking bachelor with money would with no strings attached.
Meeting Brock will change her whole life. One hot night together leaves them wanting more but Jade knows that can't happen. For one night it's nice to be just Jade to do what she wants and feel for the first time, for one night her life is hers now she's had a glimpse of what life could be like she knows she needs to return to the woman that owns and controls every aspect of her life. But now Brock has had a taste he wants more, and he will do anything to have again regardless of who is in his way.
M and Brock both want Jade, both for different reasons, both always get what they want. One wants to protect her and the other has a contract. Will Jade go back to the only life she knows or will Brock be able to go up against M and protect her?
I really like these characters, Brock is is perfect for Jade he is so sweet and protective of her, he wanted Jade, set his sights and wasn't letting go. Jade is one tough strong cookie, she has had a hard life but never let her past define who she is.
Jade may be one of the toughest, more resilient female characters I've ever read!

Brock is a sweetheart and all he wants is Jade.
This book breaks your heart and gives you hope - all with a twist you didn't see coming!
I really enjoyed this book. Jodi L. Perry has proven once again that she is a talented writer, capable of creating stories that capture your attention, and make you fall in love with the characters. Jade and Brock have a great chemistry and I loved how their relationship developed through the book. The secondary characters were also well written and incited strong feelings, which was great to see. Overall this book was really well written and a highly enjoyable read.
I liked the storyline. There was action, drama, suspense and it was also smoking hot in parts. An emotional rollercoaster. Great chemistry between the two main characters. A good read that keeps you guessing all the way to the end.
