A stand-alone forbidden romance...
People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.
I call myself tenacious.
One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Until a chance encounter changes everything.
It only leaves me wanting more.
But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.
Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.
Too bad I already did.
And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again...

A.L JACKSON had my mind spinning with this suspenseful romance, not giving anything away until the plot thickened and the truths were finally revealed at the right time.
ABOUT THE PLOT;
Grace is a single parent with three children and lives with her Gran, Grace is afraid of her ex, desperately trying to find someone to help her so her husband can't take her children away from her, he has already threatened that if she doesn't return to him although they are now divorced he will take them away. Grace has evidence and is a threat to him and his dirty deeds unless he has her under his thumb, something Grace isn't willing to do and will do anything to fight for her children and keep them away from him.
Grace was a dreamer a believer in fairy-tales until she trusted her heart to the wrong man.
Nothing is given away as to who Grace's ex is until absolutely necessary keeping you guessing and desperately wanting to know whats gone down and who he is, you just know that he is powerful and obviously corrupt.
Ian is an attorney, he's intense, a man who is clawing his way to the top were his only goal is to make partner and he will do anything to get there. Ian is also ruthless, he comes across as self absorbed and focused on his goals, none of that includes women, love or a happy future. Ian is a man with his own dark past and is desperate never to be a bottom feeder ever again.
Until Grace..........Love. changes. focus.
The night Ian meets Grace it's instant lust on Ian's part and the dirty talker in him comes out, Ian always gets what he wants and the woman with the killer legs is going to be his for one night. Ian doesn't get his night but he can't get Grace out of his head, the man who self proclaimed couldn't love, would never trust another except his friend and his brother, a man who only had his own interests at heart and one meet with a beautiful haunted woman changes everything..
A great read, at times cryptic, suspenseful, hot, with its moments of humour and adorable kids too.
Ian does end up helping Grace but the battle is dirty and dangerous and Ian falls deeper and deeper for Grace putting his career and all he has build at risk.
Grace had every-right to believe in price charming again, I loved how it all it turned out in the end.
I haven't read the previous book which is Ian's brothers story and after just a few glimpses of his brother Jace and his wife Faith, I was definitely intrigued and would love to read their story too, there are no spoilers in this book to MORE OF YOU.
I also loved SHOW ME THE WAY, that book absolutely claimed me, a single dad story, I loved it and I am looking forward to reading more from this author, each book has been very different.
