Review - Jaded by Desire by Desiree A. Cox

Jaded by Desire
by Desiree A. Cox
Series: Lust, Desire and Love Trilogy, Book 2
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 28, 2015

Nikki's life was changing. She was in love, she was getting married, and she was going to have the baby that she never expected she'd have.

Everything was perfect.

Or was it?

Everyone has secrets, those hidden parts of our past we don't ever want to be discovered.

Nikki and Jeff's love will be tested.  Is their love strong enough to survive the secrets that come out?

For 18+ readers due to sex, sexual situations and language. 
This book is not a stand-alone, it is book 2 in a trilogy.  

I have been anxiously waiting for this book and loved how this story was laid out by the author. There are still some hot and steamy times, but what I loved most was having Jeff’s POV and really seeing the character development take place.

Jeff was not my favorite character at the end of book one, but getting inside his head was a perfect way to move this trilogy forward. The things that had me questioning Jeff’s motives and actions in book one could now be seen in a different light – events from his past and mistakes that he’s made and how his actions are a direct result of some of those things.

I still found myself aggravated with Nikki at times. I was happy to see she has worked out most of her issues over her feelings towards her ex, but she still struck me as a bit shallow and self-centered at times. When she realizes some of her past mistakes could seriously impact her future, I was glad to see she her recognized just how her actions had come back to haunt her.

Jeff and Nikki together were explosive – the heat between them could be felt coming off the page. I loved the emotional component between the two – you could feel them struggling with how to communicate and could feel the fear they both had about their past mistakes coming to light and what that would do to their relationship.

And of course we are left hanging at the end, waiting to find out what will happen next in the final book of this trilogy. Nikki and Jeff have lots of issues to work through and I look forward to finding out how the author leads us down this path of Lust, Desire, and Love.
