I never let anyone get too close—but he’s the only man who’s ever made me feel alive. 

Meeting Jackson Steele was a shock to my senses. Confident and commanding, he could take charge of any room . . . or any woman. And Jackson wanted me. The mere sight of him took my breath away, and his touch made me break all my rules.   

Our bond was immediate, our passion untamed. I wanted to surrender completely to his kiss, but I couldn’t risk his knowing the truth about my past. Yet Jackson carried secrets too, and in our desire we found our escape, pushing our boundaries as far as they could go. 

Learning to trust is never easy. In my mind, I knew I should run. But in my heart, I never felt a fire this strong—and it could either save me or scorch me forever.

Say My Name is intended for mature audiences.

My Review:  This was a decent book. It took me a bit to get into, but once I was sucked in, all was good.

I like Jackson. Hes a strong character, has good looks, knows how to be the alpha, and it actually a decent guy. He's great at what he does, life is going just fine for him. Then Syliva walks back into the picture. She is only there to talk about getting him on a project she is working on and nothing else. But Jackson still has feeling for her, and it really hurt him when she had him leave.

Syliva was a character that I didn't care much for. She was kinda boring, not really strong and just meh. She left Jackson a while ago. Now she needs him on board for a job. For this to happen, he wants all of her and thats something she doesn't want.

Things are going to get interesting. Slyvia wants him, but doesn't really want anything to happen. Jackson still cares and wants her. What was supposed to be a simple job recruitment, is about to get a little hot and dirty. When things started to get heated, the author did really well. Nothing too crazy, but enough to keep you enjoyed.

Overall a decent book, and it would have turned out even better if Slyiva was a better character.

My Rating:
