REVIEW: This story picks up where Twisted by Desire concludes. Nikki is pregnant and Jeff is not happy about it. Over the course of time, he warms up to the idea that he will be a father. Jeff and Nikki become closer during the months leading up to the wedding; however, Nikki starts to feel insecure about everything. Not only does she start feeling insecure about her body as it continuously grows larger by the week, but now she gets to meet the coworker that Jeff is always out of town with on business. And…SHE is anything but the business type. What hasn’t he been telling her? I really enjoyed reading this story more so than the first in the series. Twisted by Desire gave me knots in my stomach regarding the way that Jeff spoke to Nikki. It was difficult to understand what she saw in him. More of the story came out in Jaded by Desire and I found out what was missing! The reader never had a chance to read about Jeff’s point of view. Jeff and Nikki go through a whirlwind of emotions through this story; however, the author allows you to see how it effects both of them. I was able to relate to the situations that they faced and my interests were peaked while I read further into the story. I didn’t really notice that I showed favoritism to any character although, they all seemed to have their own secrets in this one. Jaded by Desire is targeted to a female audience, in my opinion. I rate this one with five stars because it was well written and original; the characters also seemed to be more developed. There wasn’t as much sex which I enjoyed. Sometimes, I feel that too much sex can take away from a potentially great story but this was not the case here. I am excited to read the next in the series called Reclaimed by Desire which will be out in the summer of this year.
