I was born into luxury and used to getting what I wanted.
What I desired most, with my life in disarray, was the man who sat across from me.
He was tall, dark and handsome, but, most notably, forbidden.

It made every accidental touch more sinful and every session more addictive.

There was so much tragedy and he was supposed to fix me.
I shouldn’t have wondered how it would feel to be trapped under his broad shoulders.
I shouldn’t have focused on the way he licked his bottom lip every time his gaze dropped from mine and roamed my curves.
I shouldn’t have dreamed about him breaking the rules to comfort me the way I desperately needed.

I did though, and I was the first one to break.

He was my protector and my confidant and then he became my lover.
I teased him, tempted the two of us and now there’s no way to take it back.
With everything I’ve been through, I didn’t expect to fall for him.
There’s only so much heartache I can take.

No one can know, not a soul, but secrets in the life I lead never last for long.

**** My Review ****

The Ultimate Storyteller + The Queen of Wicked Sensuality – what a combination???? Willow and her stories, in which darkness mixes with light, pain and pleasure are two sides of the same coin, and fear and passion are intertwined …. Add to that Amelia, with her unique descriptiveness, and exciting wickedness and you surely get a story that from the first chapter he will drag you into its whirlpool and will not let you go to the very end ….

Secrets and passion, forbidden love and sinful thoughts …. this is the world of Zander and Ella … attraction that is born at first sight and suppresses every sobriety, breaks down all barriers and culminates in those moments filled with fiery passion and surrender ……. Two intriguing characters, each wrapped in their own mystery, each possessed by their own demon, but the desire that burns inside them is the same ….  will they manage to overcome the darkness, or just learn how to enjoy it?

The description itself does not offer much information, the title points to something else, and confusion envelops you through the first chapters …. word by word, sentence by sentence and suddenly you are trapped in the world of Ella and Zander, not knowing anything, not understanding why … and you only want one thing, to get to the end as soon as possible, to the light that offers so many answers, and at the same time you want it to last as long as possible … You are horrified and excited, emotions change with dizzying speed, and you wonder and thank at the same time that you have chosen this book to read …… As always, these authors through clear and easy-to-read words, manage to weave a story that both shocks and amazes me, a story in which each answer brings even more questions, and every scene is full of suspension and brims with shorching sexuality …  and every new page  brings a new urge to keep reading.

Narrated through flawless dual narrative, the book offers insight into the thoughts of both main characters, deftly retaining the mystery that is so obvious from beginning to end. Riches and fame come with burdens too. Every perfectly acted play comes to an end. Ella, an entitled princess, whose life is marked with old money is a character who surprises with her endurance and obedience at the same time. Zander, and his secret, as well as the task he has to perform, is a dark hero who awakens sinful thoughts in the late hours. Zander Thompson at The Firm, a private security company for high profile clients. Discretion is a must…Ella is released into their custody from a psychiatric clinic. His job is to keep her safe & sound, but, seeing her brings to mind images of inappropriate things…. Will he be able to stay professional or will lines be crossed? And they together, an explosion of passion and emotions … Simply, even if you want, you can not ignore that sexual energy that emanates from every scene …

And definitely, I can’t wait to start the second part, which I hope offers refreshment and so much coveted answers that did not let me sleep while reading this part. Dark and exciting, emotional and aloof, Kiss Me by W. Winters and Amelia Wilde is definitely a great choice for all those who are not afraid to be trapped in sensual darkness, which offers an escape from everyday life.
