Jasmine Nichols is a control freak.

When she graduates from college as valedictorian with a degree in social services, her friend and mentor Jill Swanson offers her a job, but with one condition. She has to take two weeks off and just have fun. Taking the instructions to heart, Jasmine goes to a club called Debauchery and has a sizzling encounter with a sexy stranger.

Ex-pro football player Gabriel Johnson is done playing the field.

Gabe is tired of meaningless relationships, but when he meets a mysterious, beautiful, blue-eyed blonde at Debauchery and the chemistry is undeniable, he knows he’s finally found the one. What he didn’t expect was for her to freak out and run off. 

Jasmine thought she made a clean getaway, so needless to say, she’s shocked when she finds herself face to face with the hot guy from the club once again. 

He’s Jill’s. Half. Brother.

Gabe wants to pick up right where they left off and doesn’t waste any time convincing her. Jasmine’s blown away by the intensity of their relationship. How can she control something that makes her feel so wild and uninhibited?

But Jasmine can’t handle the pressure.

First, she’s confronted with old insecurities. Then suddenly, her brother has a secret he’ll only share with Gabe, the father who abandoned her shows up—at Gabe’s instigation—and a professional tragedy is the last straw. 

What happens when it all falls apart?
Is being with Gabe more than she can handle?

Sometimes just when you think you have everything figured out and under control, fate, that evil little thing can throw you small twist and changed everything you thought you knew.

Jazzy as everyone calls her, has been pulled out for a night of celebration by her twin brother, Jordan.  When she sees an incredible and sexy looking man standing just a few feet away from where she is at the bar she is drawn to him like a moth to a flame.  When he disappears she feels it is for the best, because she knows that he would be anything but safe for her.  But then, the stranger reappears, and pulls her in for a moment in time that will forever change her life.  But, for as quick as things heat up, that stop just as fast and Jasmine takes the chance to escape trying to keep herself intact.

Gabe gets the surprise of his life when the one woman who twisted everything up inside of him walks through his door with his sister.  When he sees her he knows that he must find more out about her and refuses to let her get away from him this time.

This book will keep you on anything but an even emotional level that is for sure.  The way that life allows all outside obstacles to jump in the way of Jazzy and Gabe just adds to the suspense of whether or not they will really be able to make it as a couple.  Add into the fact of all the other drama that Jazz seems to have falling around her in her life outside of Gabe just makes the day to day stress for her even more unbearable.   The way that Evan Grace writes Gabe makes him that dreamy hunk that we all wish we could find.  That is what makes him such a wonderful and studly book boyfriend.  The one thing that will drive you crazy is the fact that even though Jazzy has had to somewhat grow up quick, she allows her age and insecurities consume her and that is what seemed to aggravate me the most about this book.  That and Jordan's selfishness, but in reality most gay men are that way.

Overall this was a good book to read and review.  It is recommendable to your friends, and it will also leave you wanting to continue this series into the next book to see what will happen with Jill.  

A Midwesterner and self-proclaimed nerd, Evan has been an avid reader most of her life, but five years ago got bit by the writing bug, and it quickly became her addiction, passion and therapy. When the voices in her head give it a rest, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Madeline Sheehan and Jamie Mcguire. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, so if you see her wearing her headphones you know she means business and is in the zone.
