I’m J.D. Wilder, and it takes a lot to shame me, but we’re about to see where you draw the line.
Gabrielle Duval once belonged to me.
And like it or not, she’ll be mine again.
In a world where money, power and corruption rule, I’m prepared to do whatever it takes.
Although nothing with that woman is ever easy.
But believe me when I tell you, I’ll enjoy every minute of the fight.

~ABOUT THE AUTHOR~
A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.
A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.
Eva holds a BA from Boston College and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.
When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

And I enjoyed it quite a lot. The writing was fantastic. It was well paced. The plot was engaging and well developed. There is a nice little mystery storyline that weaves its way throughout the story. It is also a second chance romance, which can be iffy for me at times. Luckily both the hero and heroine had moved on during the fifteen years apart. Nothing that bugs me more than a heroine that sits around pining. (lol) I didn’t find it particularly angsty or dark. However, if you know me then you know that I read some super dark books, so your mileage may vary in that regard. There wasn’t any OW or OM drama. There were some interesting secondary characters especially the hero’s brothers and Smith. The two main characters were intriguing, to say the least. J.D…what can I say. The guy was a douche. He honestly was. However, I think his douchiness is a facade. At least when it comes to Gabrielle. As for the heroine…theoretically, I would have preferred Gabrielle kicked the hero in the balls and told him to go f-ck himself, but that would have made for a very short book indeed. I still enjoyed her as a heroine despite that. Last, it all wraps up on a whopper of a cliffhanger.
There was just one thing that stopped this from being a 5-Star book. The fact that the hero (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) cheated on the heroine in the past. I am guessing there is more to that incident than was hinted at in this book, but (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) cheating is a tricky issue for me, and I found myself bothered by it here. Perhaps when the reason is fully revealed in the next book, I will feel differently. The other TINY issue I had was with the sexual experiences that these two were supposed to have had when she was 15/16 (and a virgin), and he was 19 (I believe). They seemed a bit far fetched for a couple of teenagers. But that was more of an eye-rolling niggle than anything that affected my rating or enjoyment of the story.
So yea, nothing more to say about this one. I enjoyed it a lot and I am looking forward to the second book.
