When I started my reading challenge this year, I promised myself that I would try to read as many new to me authors as possible. This is how I found authors that are now on my auto-buy list. I gave their first book a chance and the rest is history. I don't even need to look at the cover or read the blurb of their books to one-click.
When the cover of Deceit in Bloom showed up on my news feed, I was mesmerized. After reading the blurb, I knew that this would be a thrilling reading escape. This book did not disappoint and I am so glad I found a new author to follow. Deceit in Bloom was a captivating story from beginning to end! Don't even get me started on the major cliffhanger that was waiting for me at the end of the story. The author does warn the readers at the beginning of the book, but I still got a virtual slap in the face when I was reading the last few words.
At twenty-five years old, Paisley James is craving for that one moment that will change her life. An adventure that would make her feel alive. Growing up as a foster child, she feels like she does not belong anywhere. Until sexy and intriguing Burke comes into her life. He's dangerous, unexpected and intense. As days go by, Paisley grows more addicted to his touch and his presence. Burke knows that he should stay away from Paisley. She's everything he ever wanted, but he can't have her. Claiming her would put her life in danger and he knows it. Will Burke be able to protect Paisley from the danger that is lurking around them?
I really enjoyed this book. It was passionate, action-packed and a real page-turning journey! Paisley and Burke's chemistry was seriously hot and addictive. You can feel the sexual tension rising when they are in the same room and their connection grew into something more pretty quickly. The supporting cast of characters in this story were great and I really hope some of them will get their own book. I loved the strong bond between Burke, Teagan and Kai. It was beautiful to see them so united. Like I mentioned before, the ending was pretty crazy. It took me my surprised and I can't wait to read the continuation of this story.
I give, Deceit in Bloom, by Jennifer Michael, 4 mesmerizing, intriguing, intense, what in the world was that ending stars!
