Series: His to Possess #1
While attending a job fair, Jessica can’t help but notice the tall, dark, and handsome stranger across the conference lobby. Especially since he bears a striking resemblance to her ex, the man who broke her heart when he couldn’t support her dreams. Deciding to take a chance, Jessica invites Dane back to her bed for one night of hot, no strings attached sex in a last effort to finally get over her heartbreak. However, when the night’s over they find that sometimes a casual fling doesn’t end the next morning.
We get a nice introduction into what will most likely be a complicated tale of a naive girl named Jessica who moves from a small town to Philly to get a job, and encounters Dane who is most likely a billionaire businessman with an edge of dominance to his nature. We see the beginning of this relationship when Jessica mistakes Dane for her ex Storm who left her heart broken and out of sorts. Of course, that means that it instantly makes her think of all things passionate and sexually charged.
There’s definitely more to the story that I can’t wait to uncover. What will Jessica do with Dane if anything? Will she manage to get a job or will she have to use her meeting with Dane to get something? Will her new friendship with Melanie turn into something useful to her, and will Storm make his presence known in Philly at any point and stir up trouble?
I”m going to try to get my hands on books #2 and #3 since i know that they are also available via NetGalley but until then, at least i started this journey and can’t wait to see where it takes us. The heat that I’ve seen in other books by Opal Carew lead me to the assumption that this will be so steamy and charged that readers won’t be left wanting.
