Overview

Jade has worked as a Seductor in a secret organization for five years now. Her main job? To earn the trust of her targets and secure the object or information her company was hired to steal-by any means necessary. She's damn good at it, too.

With five years left on her contract, she is handed an assignment that turns her world upside down.

Oliver Kirkham is the attractive, young CEO of Kirkham Industries, a weapons manufacturing company, and is currently in possession of some very important blueprints-blueprints that could change the way war, as we know it, works. He's extremely focused and doesn't have time to date, at least until he comes to the rescue of a shy but very alluring Jade Gibbs.

What happens when one night of passion turns into more? Will Jade allow her feelings for Oliver to get in the way of her mission? Or will she do what she was hired to do and secure the steal?

**I WAS SENT A COPY FREE OF CHARGE FOR REVIEW. I AM NOT BEING COMPENSATED. I’m torn with this book. It’s a great story with extremely strong, well voiced characters. But on the other hand it feels a little rushed and I’d really like to know more about Jade and the other Seductors. The author hints at relationships (both romantic in nature and platonic) between the various characters that work in this secret organization, but there’s not enough there to build a mental image of their relationships. I would have rated this higher if I could have gotten to know Jade and her backstory more. However, I did enjoy this story. Jade is an amazing character–most of the time in this type of book the female character (main or supporting) is seen as a wilting flower, or damsel in distress just waiting for the hero to come in and sweep them off their feet. Jade has nothing of that, even while pretending to be something she’s not. Her interactions with Oliver were interesting, I liked how the ‘love/lust at first sight’ gave way to feelings, and compromised missions. [No further spoilers ;) ] The character of Oliver was great too. An alpha male who went after someone that he wanted, but at the same time there’s tenderness and gentleness that I find isn’t in a lot of alpha-male characters. He and Jade are electric together and I found myself falling for them together. The plot was decent, it worked with what the characters had set up, and worked well with the world. I enjoyed the ending. I won’t talk anymore about that, other than I really liked it and it left me wanting more. I want to know more about where the characters go from here. Overall, it was okay, few repetitive phrases, and a too mysterious heroine on the downside, but the story carries itself well and redeems itself slightly.

4.5 out of 5 for this reader folks! WOW .. well that was a totally different (in a great way) and SUPER HOT read. Desire by B.L. Wilde is most definitely classified as an erotic novel. While the smut was yummy and plentiful, I have to say the actual storyline was quite unique and not something I have come across before (not that I can think of right now anyway ...lol). Meet sexy, strong minded, nothing gets in her way, Jade. Jade is an employee to a company called "The Seductors". These are men and woman who are trained in the art of seduction in order to manipulate a "target". Clients hire a seductor for many reasons. A seductor is trained to be the best, and not just the best at seduction. A seductor is held to a high standard of fitness, personal image, special ops, and yes .. SEX! Jade is considered to be a top seductor within the company. She can manipulate and distance herself from any target she has been given, and ALWAYS gets the job done! Jade's latest target is Oliver, the CEO of a company that specializes on nuclear weapons. Jade's mission is simple ... seduce Oliver and get close enough to extract essential files on his computer. Easy enough for the top seductor right??? Ya ... not so much! ;) What Jade doesn't expect, is to have her mind blown by this wicked and wonderful man. For the first time, Jade is somewhat feeling a little trumped and is experiencing feelings that have no business in surfacing. Oliver rocks her world in ways that make him the hardest target she has ever had. So much more to this story .. I am not giving you any more goodies. LOL I will say, I was captivated by the story, and the smut made my toes curl in the best way ever. These two lit my e-reader on fire! ;) It was intense at times, especially reading how Jade lowers her walls and let's Oliver see her vulnerable side. Lines get blurred as the relationship progresses, leaving Jade to question if a mission is in fact worth it. The writing was excellent. I was completely drawn in. My only negative remarks will be about the cover and the ending. The cover needs to match this amazing book, and right now it looks a little on the cheap side. The ending .. hard to comment on this without giving much away, so all I'll say is that I was a little confused if I was left with a cliffhanger or a true ending. I guess I'll find out when her next book in this series is released! ;) HAPPY READING!

What would you do if your job was seducing unsuspecting people for someone else’s gain? How would you handle allowing a target cloud your judgement towards the job that you’re on? These are some of the questions that Jade is faced with after working for a secret organization of Seductors.   Over the past 5 years she has gotten really good at her job and it makes it so much more easier that she actually enjoys what she’s doing. Jade finally gets the one case that is almost too much for her to handle, she’s given that task of retrieving some sensitive information from Kirkham Industries CEO, Oliver Kirkham.  So I have to be honest and admit that when I actually grasped all what being a top Seductors really was, I kinda felt like they were just super spy-like prostitutes. Ok so it wasn't kinda, that’s what I thought and I’m really having a hard time thinking otherwise.   Jade has a true talent for getting what she wants and does not feel guilty about her position one bit. Things changed when the Seductor was seduced by the target. After her first encounter with Oliver, Jade was never the same. Jade couldn't believe just how simple it was for Oliver to take over her thoughts and do things to her body that she never thought possible.   I liked Jade she despite her focus and loyalty to her job she has a conscience and for me it made her more human.  Oliver Kirkham is different from most of the overly wealthy alpha males that I have been in many books that I've read as of late, which is refreshing. Despite his primal desire for Jade, he’s not stalker like and far from that I need to control your every move syndrome.   As I progressed through Desire I was on the edge of my seat wondering if Jade would complete her mission. On some level I was hoping somehow circumstances would change where Oliver would not get hurt. I actually developed a soft for him. While Desire did come full circle it still had that cliffhanger vibe. I got to the last page and almost passed out. I wanna know what happens now. So almost immediately I looked to see when I would be able to get my greedy hands on Vol. 2 I learn that I have to suffer until June, 2014. Now I have a pouty face.  **Huge thanks to the author for providing me with an arc copy in exchange for my honest opinion** Please check out my blog at shawnasurvey dot blogspot dot com.  Follow me on Twitter @shawnasurvey.

Desire I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and that I am delighted to do. Since the holidays I have been swamped, but managed to read a bit each day and have finally completed its wondrous tale. The Seductors may be a fictional organization, but the way it is written of I wish it were a real one, and would love to sign up if deemed worthy of such a group. The characters in the story are very believable which speaks well of the author’s abilities. As a writer myself it is always great to see the people brought to life in my mind’s eye. The story itself is wonderful, the pace and timbre of the tale are very well done indeed. It is not my place to reveal the storyline, for that is the place of an author and as such won’t step on her toes, so to speak. I will say that the ending is perfection…and leave it at that. I would highly recommend anyone who enjoys this genre to buy it, and whatever other book she has or ever will write.
