Book Review: Desire





Desire (The Seductors Series #1)
by B.L. Wilde


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?

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC generously provided by author in exchange for an honest review**

Desire holds true to its title. It's an interesting story with a unique plot that is fueled by desire. Jade is a top agent where she practices the art of seduction in order to get information or goods from targets. She's worked the job flawlessly without breaking the first rule of not getting attached, until she meets her new target, young billionaire Oliver Kirkham. Oliver awakens her to feelings that have been dormant for her for a long time. He's charismatic and wears his heart on his sleeve. Their story ignites from their very first encounter. The writing is engaging and the plot flows easily making Desire a quicker read. I didn't feel that we got a lot of depth of character from Jade. Realizing that her career is a reason for that, I still feel as though I want to know more about her and her life before she became a seductor. There is a blatant mystery that swirls around Jade, and while I liked that for Oliver as the reader I wanted more from her character. Without that, I felt a certain disconnect to the characters. However, her character is fiercely independent and a great example of a great heroine. The story did hold my attention and I found the plot refreshing in its uniqueness. Usually billionaire men are paired with damsels in distress and I really liked that Jade isn't even close to being that damsel. The books ends in kind of a cliff hanger, it's not a cliff hanger where you're clutching the Kindle and screaming for more but Desire leaves you well desiring a little more. I'm excited for the second book to see where Jade and Oliver's journey takes us.
