Book One: Lucas

‘Lucas flashed into my life like a glorious thunderbolt, electrifying my senses with those cobalt blue eyes; then just like lightning he was gone.’

Jessica Evangelista has had it tough. Pregnant at sixteen, she’s fought hard to protect the little boy she loves. Life never dealt her a break, until now. But when her thunderbolt lands as a permanent fixture, seriously sinful and impossible to ignore, he threatens every aspect of the life she’s strived so hard to build. When you’re fighting for a chance, there aren’t many rules. Jess only has two;

She will never sleep with her boss.

She will never risk it all.

Lucas Hunter is a man used to getting what he wants. A master of the boardroom and the bedroom, he’s respected, magnetic and powerful, and that’s the way he likes it. Dark and dominant, serious and brooding, he lives for control. But when a beautiful waitress crashes into his life, he knows he needs to win her. What he doesn’t need is a woman who blindsides him at every turn, forcing his ordered world into absolute chaos.

He doesn’t pick up waitresses and he doesn’t f**k employees.

Relationships come with a cast iron contract.

Some rules were made to be broken. Some feelings are just too powerful to ignore.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.



Lucas – what’s in a name???

First off, I wish the very hot, sexy Dom in this story didn’t share his name with my son…awkward!!

I really enjoyed this story and loved the slow development of the characters. It was great to get to know them and how they tick before they jumped into bed or in this case “strip and kneel”.

The Dom and Sub relationship was well explained and wasn’t OTT. There were times when I was cringing, not a fan of humiliation and whipping (for me), but I sort of got it with them. This book could have had the BDSM stuff taken out and still been HOT.

I had a little bit of a problem with the “compartmentalisation” of their relationship going on as long as it did, but I definitely understood Jess’s hesitating on bringing Lucas into her son’s life. In my own experience, I wish more Mother’s acted this way. Jess was a very mature twenty-one-year-old and I never felt frustrated like I normally do when reading NA books.

Overall loved the characters, the sexy bits were hot and the ending was everything I hoped it would be. Cannot wait for Roman’s book.

Loved the book L. J. but you never told us how old Lucas was….I need to know!!!
