Security expert David McIntyre is in love with Jade and has been from the moment they met. Unfortunately for him, that was the week she married his best friend. For years he's stayed silent, giving her time to mourn. When he discovers she's dating again, all bets are off. Then someone targets her to die and he realizes he has more trouble than he bargained for. Seducing her isn't the problem. Convincing her what they have together isn't purely physical, however, is. It might even prove to be a bigger challenge than trying to keep her alive.

A intense read, while you can see how somethings might play out there were still some surprises in how they did turn out or how certain events played out. The characters were interesting and the story started at a great point.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This riveting contemporary romance gets the adrenaline pumping when widow, Jade Hadley is finally ready for a second chance at happiness and she tells her sister she needs some “excitement and red hot sex” in her life. Security expert David McIntyre has been in love with Jade since he met her so when he discovers she’s ready to date again he sets out to seduce her into a HEA with him, but before they can get things worked out, excitement comes calling as well and Jade’s life is threatened.
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with action, suspense, drama and red hot passion. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated intrigue and drama draws the reader deeper into the story. Spine tingling anticipation builds throughout the story during the budding romance and from the increasing danger to Jade. And the strong compelling characters are easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.
The attraction between Jade and David is strong enough to burn up the pages and the sex scenes are scorching hot, but the relationship has some obstacles to overcome. The reader can certainly empathize with Jade as she is unsure what to think about dating David since he’s her best friend and her rock which cause some drama during some intense moments. David stays strong, but when her life is threatened all bets are off.
I was completely caught up in this story from the beginning and couldn’t put it down until I read the very last word. This author always comes through for reader’s that are looking for thrills and excitement as well as passionate encounters no matter what name she is writing under, Savannah Stuart or Katie Reus and this one is no different.

Males love to crave what they can't have and I call this the FORBIDDEN FRUIT SYNDROME! This is one of those fabulous tales!
Jade Hadley is a young widow who has her own successful clothing store, a meddling sister and mom, troublemaking twin nephews and her fantastic and stable best friend, David, her deceased hubby's partner. What Jade really needs is some steamy, uncomplicated and hard sex. She misses having a man on or under her and the close physical connection. Jade decides to start dating, with the help of her meddling family, and find the man who can break her celibate life.
David McIntyre is an ex military, ex US Marshall and now he has a very successful security firm and travels a lot because he is a trouble person. David has loved his BF's wife, Jade, since the day he meet her. While Jade and Aidan were married, he kept his distance, screwed random females and kept his obsession with Jade to himself. Now he is in the hated "Friend Zone" and is waiting for Jade to be ready for a new relationship and then she is HIS!
When David returns from any business trip, he goes to Jade's home to catch up and to feed his cravings for her, and is shocked when she says she has a DATE, in a few hours. He is crushed, but Jade asks him to do his laundry and wait for her to get back and they can chat. Jade first date was terrible and when she opens her front door there is David, in just jeans! She wants and desires to touch or maybe kiss his amazing, yummy and sexy chest! David knows she is now ready for him because she becomes so aroused, by his chest, so he invites her for dinner and she agrees. After the Super Bowl, David wakes her up with toe curling kisses, sensual caresses and an earth shattering orgasm! David tries for more, but she freaks out and flees.
At her store, a mysterious and scared woman comes in for a scarf and sunglasses. When she asks Jade for a trade, her amazing ring for the merchandise, Jade agrees and then crap hits the fan! Now Jade's world is falling apart, with her desires for David on overdrive and with the odd DEA agent asking questions about the woman. Jade thinks the agent is lying and kinda scary, so she lies about having the ring. Jade is almost ran over by a speed truck and David comes to care for her and hears the whole agent/ring story. David must not only protect her, but comes clean about his feeling for her. They begin a sexual journey together while an unseen nemesis stalks her, attempts made to kidnap her, someone trashes her home and now her life is endangered. Can Jade let David's love into her heart? Will David be able to safeguard the only woman is has always loved? Will her deceased hubby stand between them? Is it love or the dangerous situation? How will Jade's meddling sister scheme to bring David and Jade together?
This was my first Savannah Stuart romance book and she knows how to write steamy, electrifying and "make my toes curl" scenes. The desire that are unleashed between Jade and David almost fired my kindle, twice. Jade was a character that I could relate to because of loss and death. Jade grieved so naturally, but fought to hard to keep her hubby's love unchanged and move on. David had the hero problem that I enjoy almost as much as a bad boy, what I love to call THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT SYNDROME! The syndrome is wanting and craving the BF's little sister or loved female friend, that he must NEVER touch! David handled and respected his BF's relationship and love his wife amazingly, in my humble opinion. David was supportive of Jade's grieve, but almost waited to long. Ms. Stuart even threw in kidnapping, bullets, a corrupt agent and unseen danger. This adrenaline thrill ride helped this couple to have must needed time alone together and the awesomely fabulous sex that Jade so needed! I am a diehard fan of reading a book and hopefully leaping into that author's creative world! Ms. Stuart does this with remarkable easy and her many world will now be added my TBR list! She receives a score of 4 fingers up and 8 toes for this adventurous tale.
NetGalley ARC received for my honest review.

Jade Hadley lost her husband in the line of duty. Now she is finally ready to move on with her life. David McIntyre, her husband's best friend, has always loved Jade. Now she is aware of him as a man and lover. Of course, romance takes a back seat when someone is trying to kill you. Luckily David is a well-trained security expert. Will their romance lead to a HEA? No one writes erotic romantic suspense like Savannah Stuart/Katie Reus. This book is a wild ride that combines intrigue with a sensual romance. Jade and David are both strong and determined people. They will fight and protect those they care about. The secondary story of Maya and Colin added so much to the story. Tempting Target had everything - love, joy, sorrow and a happy ending.

An interesting story about second chances at love that is also full of suspense. The characters are believable and have great interaction. David and Jade are best friends, there is sexual attraction, someone is after her and he needs to protect the woman he loves. I enjoyed the suspense aspect entwined with the unfolding love story very mush. Intriguing book filled with mystery and new found relationships.
