J Kahele has done it again! This was an outstanding read and I enjoyed every bit of it. From the beginning, I was hooked by the believable characters. I instantly felt drawn to Violet and I was thoroughly gripped by the time the character Chain was introduced. The supporting characters were also believable. The hidden passions were cleverly woven in and I really felt captivated by their emotional and sensual discoveries.
The scenes are emotionally charged and they come across as very real, very raw and in parts I felt very sympathetic to them. It was also very fast paced, and I felt compelled to carry on reading, as I felt that I just ‘had to know’. This story combines, romance, emotional anguish, and suspense, cleverly written with true to life character depictions. It was also full of imagery, more than just from the characters. The places were described in infinite detail. So much so that I could imagine myself there. The seductive suspense and build up was very rich real and intriguing.
For me, the best part was being able to explore real life issues through the perspective of both male and female characters. I anxiously wait for more stories from this Author.

Excerpt from the Book
His hand slid to the curve of my back and he pulled me into a deep embrace. My eyes met his and they gleamed with a softness and gentleness that took my breath away. He smiled as he slid his finger down my cheek, across my chin, before slipping back into a kiss. I didn’t know if it was the way his lips softly touched mine, or if it was the loving way he had looked into my eyes, but everything about Chain at that moment captured my heart.
He placed feather kisses across my collarbone, the curve of my neck, my jaw, and then claimed my lips. The kiss was soft, slow and lingering. As our lips parted our tongues met in sync. I held him close, wanting to remember his strong shoulders, the touch of his skin to mine. His hand caressed the inside of my thigh and I moaned, then he curled me close to him and kissed me with a passion that made my heart skip a beat.
As our bodies slowly moved against each other, I felt something reaching deep inside of me, gripping at my heart, overwhelming my emotions, causing tears to stream uncontrollably from my eyes. Chain lifted his head, staring into my eyes, and I saw he was mirroring the same feelings as I.
As he circled his hips slowly, we found our release together and I exhaled sharply. That familiar feeling filled me, that stabbing, aching feeling.
It surrounded me.
I turned away from Chain, hugging my pillow, my mind drifting off into a pit of despair. As much as I tried to fight it, to run from it, there was no denying that I was falling hard for Chain Alexander and there was no way of escaping
