Book Review: Want Me by Cynthia Eden
Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge. But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her. Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.
Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard. She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.
He doesn’t play at all...
Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets. And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk... as long as he can claim Sophie.
Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others... Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch.
No one does a hero like Cynthia Eden. Her heroes are dark, mysterious, and sexy as hell. You'll love them and Lex will show you why.
You won't be able to stop yourself from falling for Lex. He's the greatest guy. He has fallen for a woman that his friends think is up to no good and is doing his best to keep her safe even if she doesn't want him to.
Sophie has fought hard for everything she has. Now someone is out to hurt her and she has no idea who. Could it be someone she defended or is it her best friend Ethan? Hell, you even have to wonder if it's one of the guys from her past.
You learn right away that there is more to Sophie than what meets the eye. She comes off as this tough woman who cares about no one and will protect the scum of the earth in court. But what you really have is a very caring woman who has a friend back no matter what.
Lex is perfect for her. He knows she has a past and he still will stand with her. For much of the story, he takes crap from his partners and best friends because of what he feels for Sophie. They worry that she's using him and leading him down a dark tunnel that he might not be able to survive.
I really enjoyed these two. I like when a character shows everyone one side of them and as a reader, you get to learn about all the other facets of their beings. Want Me is action-packed and you'll feel like you are on a non-stop ride. It's very enjoyable and you'll love the characters in it. Who doesn't love a hot, hero guy? Have any of you read her?
