Conflicted. Controlled. Carnal.
In the safety of her little town, Gabi’s used to practicing control.
But silencing nightmares has come at a lonely cost.
In her world, practice hasn’t made perfect. It’s made…
Then fate sends a gorgeous stranger to her rescue.
Edgy. Commanding. Intimidating. And surely able to see into her very soul.
He’s everything she dreams about…and everything she fears.
After surviving a shattering loss, Jake is finished with grief and guilt.
Determined to live again, he moves forward–vowing to keep one thing sacred.
Unapologetically dominant, his intentions for a woman are clear.
And don’t expect what he can never offer.
He knows what he wants and how he wants it.
And now…he wants her.
Disclaimer: This the first book in The Perfect Storm Duet; and ends in a slight cliffhanger – which I didn’t know before I picked up the book, so now I am impatient for the conclusion to this duet.
Gabrielle Adams is a woman, content in her seclusion. She has spent her life running away from her horrific and traumatic past & she intends to do so for it makes her feel safe and secure. Her best friend, the only one who knows exactly what has happened to her, does her best to bring her out of her shell – mostly by setting her up on blind dates. One such blind date, or rather the end of one, puts her on the path of Jake Thorton – who rescues her after her car is run off the road in an accident.
Jake Thorton is a man grieving the loss of his wife – who was also his submissive. He lost her in an accident while he was overseas on a mission – and that has added to his guilt for he loved his wife but feels as if he wasn’t there to protect her.
When Jake rescues Gabi, there is an instant connection between them – but neither of them are ready to actually to make a move on their feelings. The connection between Jake and Gabi is what had me glued to this book – both Jake and Gabi have their demons; but I adored the way Jake handles Gabi – he instinctively knows the way she needs to be taught, while Gabi not knowing why she trusts Jake to keep her safe, but she instinctually does.
But more than Jake and Gabi’s connection – I adored how the author gave us enough foundation to lay down their relationship – we see Jake and Gabi lay the foundation of their relationship; from their first unconventional meeting, to their first date, to them getting to know each other, to Jake introducing Gabi to BDSM plays to both of them realizing how deep their feelings for each other run.
I just wish I had known it was a duet – I rarely read duets; but I honestly fell in love with Jake, Gabi and MS. Delaney’s writing so I need the next book STAT!
