What he wants, he takes with no remorse or guilt.
She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn’t belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did—but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn’t leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.
What he wants, she isn’t sure she can give him.
The moment he told her want he wanted, she couldn’t resist. Instinct told her to run, but her heart said stay and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain. Though she wasn’t sure she could ever completely surrender, the primal part of her wanted to try, even knowing this man could break her in ways she never imagined. Because once he possessed her, he owned her and it would be too late to turn back. She can only pray that he doesn’t destroy her in the end.

This is different than the other books I've read by Maya but not in a bad way. Some things are a little redundant in that they are overly written to death in multiple places but all-in-all, I really enjoyed this book once I got into it. Evangeline is forced to go to a club after a bad breakup and ends up being assaulted while there by the ex. She is brought to the owner's office and Drake proceeds to go-down on her (Here's one of the little things that bugged me). Drake feels a pull towards Evangeline immediately and wants her for himself. Evangeline is kind of gun shy, but Drake is overly pushy. The whole relationship is a little one sided with Drake telling Evangeline what to do and she complies. The relationship is built over time and isn't an instant love, which helps make is a little more relatable. In the end, Drake's past, which he is hiding from Evangeline, shows up in the worst possible way and Drake does something to Evangeline that sends her running. This is where the cliffy is. And I started screaming at my kindle that it can't end that way, but it does. So you'll have to get book 2 to see what happens and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.
