Book Description

He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.

My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.

And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.

My Thoughts

This book has a raw magnetism that will suck you in and not let you go!  For Angie, Evan Black is the forbidden fruit.  She can look, but never touch.  That is until her beloved Uncle Jahn dies and all the rules change.  His comforting touch turns into a flame that will not be put out.  But a promise from Evan to Jahn, keeps him from acting on his feelings.  He’s wanted Angie since the moment he laid eye on her, but he’s trouble….with a capital T.  Into illegal activities and a background that would scare even the toughest girl, Evan knows he should leave Angie alone.  He knows he’s no good for her, despite how much he wants to own her, control her, and ultimately love her.  However, upon learning that Angie secretly wants everything that Evan can give her, he promises to help her fly.  To show her the world and give her pleasure that will leave her begging for more.  But with Evan’s secrets that could endanger them both and Angie’s grief and guilt over the death of her sister, forever may not be an option for them.  As Angie learns to be herself and not the person everyone expects her to do, she finds that Evan may be everything she’s ever needed.  Can she hold onto him or will she have to learn to fly alone?

I am quite the newbie to J. Kenner and her style and genre, but I found this book very well written with an excellent plot and saucy, sexy dialogue as well as some sweltering sex scenes!  I loved this book from start to finish, and I am usually not a fan of first person writing.  Reading as Angie learned how to be herself and not live the life her sister would have led was highly entertaining.  I enjoyed watching her character change and deal with her new freedoms and feelings.  Evan’s bad boy alpha male character is definitely sexy and lust-worthy.  His bad boy exterior helps to hide his sensitive side.  I loved the mystery surrounding the art collection and the suspense involving Angie’s ex-boyfriend, an FBI agent.  The end just keeps you turning page after page. I wish I could tell you more, but I just don’t want to ruin the plot!  Pick up your copy today and get lost in J. Kenner’s Wanted!
