Release Date: June 11, 2019


One man can change everything. That man can touch you and you tremble all over. That man can wake you up and allow you to breathe when life leaves you unable to catch your breath. For me that ONE MAN is Jax North. He's handsome, brutally so, and wealthy, money and power easily at his fingertips. He's dark, and yet, he can make me smile with a single look or word. He's a force when he walks into a room.

Our first encounter is intense, overwhelmingly intense. I go with it. I go with him and how can I not? He's that ONE MAN for me and what a ride it is. But there are things about me that he doesn't know, he can't know, so I say goodbye. Only you don't say goodbye to a man like Jax if he doesn't want you to. I've challenged him without trying. He wants me. I don't want to want him, and yet, I crave him. He tears me down, my resistance, my walls. But those walls protect me. They seal my secrets inside. And I forget that being alone is safe. I forget that there are reasons I can’t be with Jax North. I forget that once he knows, everything will change.

Because I need him.

​Because he's my ONE MAN.

He holds me fast and pulls me to him, our legs colliding, the hard lines of his body hugging mine. My gaze jerks to his, the night darkening his blue eyes, the streetlight catching flecks of amber in his intense stare. “Run with me, not away from me.”

“I don’t even know you.”

“Then change that. I’m not asking you to marry me. I’m asking you to get to know me the way I want to know you.” Somehow, this statement manages to be the perfect mix of alpha male and vulnerability. “Come with me.”

“Where?” I whisper, and I can feel my body swaying toward his.

His hand slides under my hair, a warm strong hand, his thumb stretching to my jaw, tilting my face to his. His blue eyes still catching amber gold in the streetlights, a dominance in their depths that shouldn’t arouse me, but there’s no fighting my reaction to this man, or to who I am deep down inside. And I am the woman who is drawn to a man like Jax. Perhaps to a man too like York.

“I promised you a castle,” he says, “but I’ll settle for anywhere where I can do this.” His mouth closes down on mine, his tongue pressing past my lips, a quick tease that I still manage to feel in every part of me. Goosebumps lift on my skin and his mouth lingers above mine, a hot breath promising more before he strokes deep. And then, he’s kissing me, a wicked, passionate kiss that is pure heat, greedy even, fierce. Alluring. Passionate. Addictive. And then gone, his mouth is gone, and I’m panting as he says, “Say yes and I’ll take you anywhere you want to go.”

Every warning that York stirred in me earlier fades away with the taste of this man on my lips, every warning is immediately reasoned away. This is one night and then Jax is gone. This is an escape. Death and grief allow me permission to need this. That damn journal gives me permission to need him. I’m going to do this.

“I want off this street corner,” I say. “I want to leave. I want to leave with you.”

His eyes warm, approval and satisfaction in their depths that somehow isn’t arrogant. He laces his fingers with mine and walks backward, guiding me to the door of the SUV. And then he does something unexpected. He steps aside and motions me toward the back doors, a silent invitation to enter or walk away, to make my own decision. I climb inside, letting the soft leather absorb my body, a willing victim, as he’d wanted.

One Man sucked me in right from the first page and kept me entertained until the very end.  Set in a world of riches and opulence, this book is full of mistrust, secrets, hidden agendas, shady characters, and suspense and not to mention some hot in between the sheets action. 

Jax North is a strong, sexy, determined male who is out for revenge - revenge against the Knight family who he believes had a hand in his brother’s apparent “suicide”. Emma Knight finds her life in complete upheaval after she reads her deceased father’s journal and discovers some unsavory things about her father.  There is an intense attraction between Emma and Jax and they are both wondering if they can trust each other as they are holding onto their own secrets.  You can truly witness the struggle that Emma has trusting Jax while knowing that he is hell bent on revenge towards her family.  At the same time, Jax is grappling with his feelings towards Emma given his hatred for the Knights.  One thing is for sure, these two have some explosive chemistry and they both have a desire to unravel what all has truly happened and who all the key players are.

Let’s talk about villains here.  I always love a good villain and there are so many potential ones revealed in One Man.  They are conniving puppeteers who thrive on manipulation, hoarding secrets, and conducting shady business dealings.  

I love how this author weaves such an intricate story where she slowly reveals one secret only to give the reader more questions.  She creates a hero and heroine that are strong, determined, and well-developed.  There are no doormats in this book!  This fast-paced novel was so entertaining that I could not put it down.  I knew going into it that it would be a trilogy so you can imagine the doozy of a cliffhanger that the author left us with!  I received One Man for free and I am counting down the days for the next book.
