Releasing control is relief…
I was warned about men like Brett Maclean.
He was dark and thrilling, intense and controlling. And he captivated me from the very start. He unleashed something inside of me like no other. His bad rep and troubled past drew me to him like gasoline feeding a flame.
With just one taste, I felt the danger in him, the uncontrollable power that left me breathless. The passion consumed me. Fast and hard.
Temptation couldn’t guard my heart. I should have known a man of such raw and wild desires came with competition.
Possessed by You is the first book I have ever read by J.M. Walker and let me tell ya’ll….I’m hooked! Wow. This book is amazingly written and the characters are well-developed. From page one I was absorbed into this world and I did not want to stop!
Evvie Neal’s character is independent and hard working even though she has a family of guys trying to dictate her every move. She also has a temper that can rival the best of them. I connected with her instantly because she doesn’t back down and she fights for what she wants. I love a strong female lead and J.M. Walker gives us that in Possessed by You. Brett MacLean…holy hell….he is one arrogant, controlling, and sexy as all get out alpha male. He’s domineering and sometimes you want to slap that sexy little smirk off his face, but believe me when I say this: Dominance should be a freakin’ synonym for the name Brett MacLean. He’s a playboy club/bar owner who knows just how swoon-worthy he really is. Together Evvie and Brett have chemistry. OMG…the chemistry these two have!!! **backs away from computer to fan herself**
[Evvie]: I inhaled a gasp and punched his shoulder. “No, you fucking don’t. You don’t own any part of me.” The tendons in his neck strained against his skin as he glared at me. “Well you fucking own me, Evvie. Every single piece of me. Mind, body, and soul. I am fucking yours.”
This story is one big roller coaster ride. J.M. Walker had me on the edge of my seat, sick with worry, hot and bothered, and practically drooling. I literally had to get up and walk away from my iPad at times because I was just that furious! When a book can pull this many emotions out of me I can definitely say it’s a great book. The way Evvie enthralls Brett is beautiful and crazy all at once. She’s the only person who has ever gotten to him like this and it’s breathtaking to watch. There is also a bit of mystery behind the characters. Brett has some big skeletons and I am itching to find out more. I also liked how the story ended in this book but I am extremely glad there is more to Brett and Evvie’s story!
[Evvie]: I was his. I wasn’t sure if it was the alcohol or the dangerous attraction that I felt towards him but I submitted. Completely and utterly. I was his.
Overall, I loved everything about this book. It held my attention, left me reeling, and I definitely wanted more. J.M. Walker is incredible and I can’t wait to read more from her!
