Summary

Vanessa Carmichael will never forget the horrible day for as long as she lives. With Zane fully on the mend from the brutal attack he suffered right in her very own yard, she knows she should be grateful, which she is. She also knows that walking away from Zane might be the only way to keep him safe. Despite her denial, V knows she can’t trust her own heart, especially when it comes to the youngest Walker brother, but he’s not the kind of man who will walk away when there is something he wants. He wants her even if it isn’t safe for him, and she’s not sure she is strong enough to walk away. Zane Walker might have been brutally attacked and after months in the hospital, walked away with his life spared, but now that he’s out of the hospital, he has only one goal in mind. Getting the girl.

From the first time he kissed her, Zane knew V was the only one for him. He also knew that getting her wasn’t going to be as easy as he hoped. She’s stubborn and the walls she has erected around her heart are nearly impenetrable. However, there’s one thing about Zane – he never gives up. And he’s not about to start now. Can V learn to open her heart to the one man who is desperate to get past those walls she has erected, or will she walk away to protect him? How long will Zane allow her to deny what he knows is growing between them? Or is the only option to obscure the underlying emotions with spine tingling lust?

When V and Zane come together, smoke detectors go on the fritz, but when they bring Zane’s best friend Beau into the mix extra fire extinguishers are needed.

NAUGHTYS’ REVIEW: NAUGHTYS’ RATING: 5 STARS

What can I say about Zane only that it literally took my breath away from start to finish. This is up there as one of my favourite books by Nicole Edwards. Still trying to take it all in…. so much going on in this book. Just when I think I have the Walker brothers figured out my jaw drops once again….love each and every one of them and their escapades. Nicole manages to up the ante once again with Zane. WOW, this ladies imagination knows no bounds. Love the storyline and the way Nicole interconnects the characters from Club Destiny and Alluring Indulgence, and how she has made the two series’ gel together perfectly. If you are looking for a hot steamy read this is the book for you as Zane is off the charts HOT!!! There were times I literally had to walk away from my Kindle, compose myself, and return for more. Just when I think it cannot get any hotter Nicole increases the tempo and my temperature. YES it’s THAT good!!!

The story centres around Zane Walker and his love interest Vanessa Carmichael, V as she is affectionately known. Zane has been the victim of an assault which we learned about towards the end of KALEB, the first in the series ALLURING INDULGENCE. V is falling for Zane(even if she will not admit it to herself), but she will not let him past that wall she has erected around her heart, a wall that Zane is determined to break through. He brings out a sexual side to Vanessa that she never realised she wanted to explore. This book takes us on that sexual journey and makes for a very hot and steamy ride indeed. It also gives us an insight into the lives of the other six Walker brothers which are eventful to say the least! We are introduced to another beautiful man also …the gorgeous Beau who I fell for hook, line and sinker. He is both heart melting and panty melting!! Boy, that guy sure knows how to work a pool table!! 😉

What also impacted on me from this book and Kaleb before it is the wonderful sense of family surrounding the brothers and their parents. The bond they have with each other, and the love that emanates from each and every one of these men for their mum and dad is very special, and gives this series substance.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I will just say if you have never read a Nicole Edwards book I totally recommend that you read this series and THE CLUB DESTINY series. They honestly are amazing!!! I have a huge book hangover after Zane, and I am waiting patiently (yeah right!) for Travis”, (another gorgeous Walker brother) the third in the ALLURING INDULGENCE series, to come out. From what I already know of this hunk of deliciousness I can see I am going to need my oxygen tent at the ready!!! Be still my beating heart!! Sigh!

Favourite quotes:

“Then what’s the problem?” He was getting irritated now. “Are you scared, V? Scared that fucking me might turn into something more?” Taunting her, he continued, “Scared that I might just be able to get past that impenetrable outer shell?”

“That was your first time to give a dude a blow job?”
“Yes.”
“Do you want to do it again.?”
“Yes.”
“With me.?”
“Yes”

“I love you, Vanessa Carmichael. I love you with everything I am.”
