Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from is it just me?... When something is labeled "erotic/mature audience" I expect something that means a few hours alone, lounging with a glass of wine. I found this novel to be a complete waste of my $17! Perhaps I've been spoiled by 50 shades, but it was extraordinarily misleading to place this in the "fans of 50 shades" category or label it "erotic romance/mature audience". the only thing that may have been slightly "erotic" or "mature" was the language and random places like the "c" word and the F-bomb. All this was, was a Harlequin with a few risqu? words tossed in. It was like a bad relationship-the lead in left you hot and bothered because of false expectations, but the anticipation wasn't worth your energy as you're let down and frustrated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It pulls you in.......... I did find it a slow start, but it did deliver, and I "wanted" to continue. Evan's character is what every woman dreams of, a bad boy with a bit of baggage to give him edge, but with a huge heart and love for the one he has always loved. Just ordered the next one. Can't wait until it arrives!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars, solid start Wanted is the first book in the Most Wanted series and it follows Angie who is trying to deal with her hurt and grief over her Uncles passing and in doing so looking for a thrill, something or someone to make her fly. Evan Black is that person for Angie, she has had a thing for him for years and is now getting the opportunity to be with him, but will both of their secrets bring them closer together or tear them apart. Wanted was an enjoyable book, I will say it didn't grab me the way I thought it would but it was still a really good book. The characters were solid, I thought Angie was a good character to follow, sometimes her inner dialogue got on my nerves but it didn't take away from the book. Evan was a really good character as well even though he was so full of secrets. I wish there would have been more character development in this story since the next book will be following another character but again it didn't take away from the story. The plot was good, there was some stuff that I was not expecting at all and it brought a sort of mystery aspect to this series. Overall I thought this book was good, it didn't blow me away but it held me enough I would like to read book two in this series. I would recommend this book to contemporary readers looking for a fast easy read.

9780804176668|excerpt Kenner / WANTED one I know exactly when my life shifted. That precise instant when his eyes met mine and I no longer saw the bland look of familiarity, but danger and fire, lust and hunger. Perhaps I should have turned away. Perhaps I should have run. I didn’t. I wanted him. More, I needed him. The man, and the fire that he ignited inside of me. And in his eyes, I saw that he needed me, too. That was the moment that everything changed. Me, most of all. But whether it changed for good or for ill . . . well, that remains to be seen. Even dead, my Uncle Jahn knew how to throw one hell of a party. His Chicago lakeside penthouse was bursting at the seams with an eclectic collection of mourners, most of whom had imbibed so much wine from the famous Howard Jahn cellar that whatever melancholy they’d brought with them had been sweetly erased, and now this wake or reception or whatever the hell you wanted to call it wasn’t the least bit somber. Politicians mingled with financiers mingled with artists and academics, and everyone was smiling and laughing and toasting the deceased. At his request, there’d been no formal funeral. Just this gathering of friends and family, food and drink, music and mirth. Jahn—­he hated the name Howard—­had lived a vibrant life, and that was never more obvious than now in his death. I missed him so damn much, but I hadn’t cried. Hadn’t screamed and ranted. Hadn’t done anyth
