A woman determined to heal…
Shy researcher Jess Kingston spent the last eight weeks recovering from her ex-boyfriend’s brutal attack. Body healed, she’s ready to put her life back together—except her ex isn’t ready to let go. She won’t cower in a corner while Brit tortures her, but she’s powerless to fight back.
A man determined to resist…
Ex-military security specialist Conlan James avoids commitment like the plague. His job, his Harley, and the occasional one-night stand are all he needs, until the day he rescues Jess from a tense situation and realizes he can’t get her off his mind. He can teach her to protect herself, but protecting his heart is another matter.
A madman determined to win…
As the deadly game of cat-and-mouse with Brit heats up, so does the hunger between Con and Jess. Safety might be found in numbers, but in bed, all bets are off—and the wrong move could lead to heartbreak. Or death.
Wow !!!! Teach Me by Ella Sheridan was full of emotion, drama and smouldering passion.
Jess is a survivor of abuse, by her previous boyfriend who liked his women placid and mouse like (also his nickname for Jess). And at first jess was too numb (her parents had recently died) to notice his controlling ways. But as she came to terms with her grief, she began to chafe at the restraints Brit (her ex) wasn’t happy and punished her
We skip forward a few months,and jess is still trying to put her life back together. (Brit was never brought to justice, and disappeared before the police could question him, so it was his word against hers). She gets accosted by the ex, (who swore to her, that she would always be his). In swoops a tall dark stranger to rescue Jess.
Conlan had been watching a certain brown eyed beauty for a while. And wondered where she had been for the past few months. He would come to the coffee shop each Monday, in the hopes of getting a glimpse of her. Con rescues Jess and gives her a card for a self defense class, and tells her to be careful. Conlan won’t become involved with women for more than one night, he has seen what LOVE can do to people, he saw his best friend fall apart after the love of his life left him.
The story moves at a fast pace, Con (his nickname) and Jess fight their feelings for each other. A few scenes almost melted the kindle
A kidnapping near the end had me on the edge of my seat, very intense and a few tears. The other characters in the book are a great add, Cris her best friend is a riot. Jack (who needs a book) who is also an intense alpha male, had a few funny lines. Brit really was a bad guy, no redeeming qualities at all.
Yes it was a little predictable, but the author did an amazing job, she captured the intense emotions that both Con and Jess were feeling. The scenes were really well described, I could smell the pines in the woods, and my heart raced in time to the high adrenaline that was pushed through the characters veins.
I’m definitely adding this author to my reading list. Highly recommend this one.
