    As I always do I ended up reading Secret Storm (which is the book after this one) before I read this so I had an idea of how things would go. I loved Jane and Austin in Secret Storm and now I know why! Jane was a shy soccer player until Austin came along and broke her out of her shell. When he first comes into the picture you instantly hate his guts but after a while you can't help but love him. These two characters are almost total opposites but somehow make things work between them despite Austins past. He spent most of his childhood watching his Dad cheat on his mom and Austin swore not to ever hurt a woman that way. Even though he kept his relationships casual he realizes he still hurt the girls he was with. Somehow Jane gets under his skin and helps him grow into a better man as the story progresses. I absolutely fell for these two characters. Jane was strong and willful but she also kept Austin in line when he needed it and fought for what she wanted. Austin was a prick at first but once you peeled away the layers you started to see he was just screwed up from watching his parents flounder. The supporting characters Sara and Jack made me giddy because their book was just as good and seeing how things began was exciting! The writing was well done and the entire story was well paced and didn't rush anything to get to another part of the story. Last but not least I can't leave out the yummy sexy goodness in this book! "Tell me you want me." He groaned, his voice rough. "I want you, Austin." She moved her hips, begging for him. LOVE IT! The chemistry between Jane and Austin was palpable almost so much you could touch it. I loved watching Austin give in to his desire for Jane. They couldn't keep their hands off each other throughout the book and I loved every minute! Of course Austin has to overcome the stigma his Father has drilled into him and him and Jane face some trials but everything was wrapped up so nicely I want to turn right back around and start re-reading it again! I love the way the Author blends romance and sex with every page turned and keeps you hooked into the story with that mixture. She makes you root for the characters after you have fallen for them! I am torn between this being my favorite and loving Secret Storm beyond words! I'll take Jack and Austin any day of the week! (Reviewed by Hootie of Globug and Hootie need a book)
