Meet Jake and Mimi.
Mimi is a young professional woman who is nearing her wedding day with the perfect, reliable, trustworthy fiance. But she wonders if something's missing. She's made all the right moves and choices all her life, and as she draws closer to the big day she realizes she's never really taken any chances in her life - no danger, no living on the edge and she begins to wonder if she's making the right choices at all...
Jake is the ultimate seducer. Women don't know what has hit them until it's over, and even then, he leaves them, literally, breathless and weak. The sex is unbelievable. But Jake is all about the chase, the domination and the pleasure he gets from giving a woman the greatest pleasure she's ever had - or ever will have.
When Jake and Mimi collide, so to speak, the sparks are undeniable, and the obession heats up for both of them. Unknown to either of them, a third party has drawn himself into the picture and things are about to take a turn for the worst.
This story will capture your attention in the first chapter and have you convinced you cannot put the book down until you reach the end, and the end will surprise you. It is a powerfully and superbly written thriller that will leave you, the reader, breathless at some points as it explores both sides of the exchange of sexual power with an eroticism that will make you squirm.
I would definitely consider this an adults only book for its eroticism and sexuality.

Adult content, mature theme
well, this was a good thriller, but I had to skip the last twenty or so pages at the end, and go to the last page to see how it ended. Just a little too dark and chilly for me.
If you like mind benders and thrillers then this is the book for you. I had a hard time following all of the characters making the story hard for me to follow.
