OVERALL THOUGHTS: This book lives up to its name in plot only. The “wanting” left me tired and bored about halfway through, the saving grace was her underlying story. Three rich, yet bad boy hotties, a girl pretending to be the proverbial “girl next door” combined with explosive secrets that could get them all locked up, come together to create this OK read.
SYNOPSIS: For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me comes an all-new erotic series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.
He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.
My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.
And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.
Wanted is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
THE LOWDOWN: The three bad boys (because I know that is what you all care about most) are Evan, Cole, and Tyler and they certainly do not disappoint. They’re bad boys through and through, with sordid pasts and a present that rests firmly in the darkest shades of gray the law can offer; they are what will hook you into this read. But the underlying story is what will end up keeping you there.
Angie has had this huge crush on Evan for forever and though of course that is the major plot line (it is Erotica after all it isn’t the best part of this book. Angie’s richer than rich uncle has passed away and left a mess that she and the hotties need to find a way to work out. This becomes the more thrilling aspect. The unfortunate part is that Angie and Evan are totally hot for each other… it just takes them too long to get there and the resulting scenes fizzle as the pages turn.
So the bottom line is this: I think you should read it, but I suggest that you go into it as you would a Romance novel, not Erotica. The underlying plot out shines the sex, so if you’re looking for something with a high degree of heat, this isn’t the book for you. If you have a thing for bad boys and all the drama and mystery that goes with them, then check it out.
