Why Do We Like This Book?

Adrian NA Mini Banner
There's nothing I hate more than a whiny, wimpy heroine. There's nothing I love more than that whiny, wimpy heroine finding her strength and backbone. And if she finds it while banging a tattooed, pierced bad boy in a suit? Even better! This book is filled with hot, dirty sex, suspense, villains you love to hate and an alpha a-hole who shows just enough of his soft side to be likable. [December 2014]

Favorite Quotes

I’m drawn to him like those stupid moths drawn to a flame.  The ones that get closer and closer until their wings sizzle and their bodies smoke.  When it’s over, they fall to the ground like burning little crisps.
But with Violet, it feels like….more.  Like I want to use and keep and possess and mark and fuck until I can’t see straight.  She consumes me.  Confuses me.  Exhilarates me.
I hate it.
I want more of it.


The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.

Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.

One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.

My everything.

About The Author
Adrian Perkins

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom’s Jackie Collins novels. I’m a romance junkie and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever BBF.

I’m a Part-time Realtor and full-time Mommy with a husband, 2 kids and 3 cats. I love to travel almost as much as I love to read.
