Cecille “CeCe” Cervetti lives her life by one rule: Never let a man control her heart, ever again.
CeCe has built a life to be proud of–she’s successful in business, and in lust. Men are her playground, to take from, and use to her body’s content. They can only have what she is willing to give, so don’t try asking for more.
When an unknown stalker raises the stakes, ripping away her hard won control, CeCe reluctantly seeks help from the first, and last, man she gave her heart to before he vanished from her life–Jarod Gates.
As they struggle to unmask the stalker, CeCe and Jarod learn of each other’s scarred pasts—scars that made them who they are today. But when her body screams for Jarod’s touch, can CeCe manage to keep her control? Or will Jarod make her question the one rule she’s built her life on?
BREAKING SPADES by W. FERRARO REVIEW – 4.5 Stars
Okay I have loved every single one of the amazingly gorgeous, hunky, viral, oozing sexiness men in this series. From Seth to Dylan to Wes and now Jarod. But OMG Jarod is my all time winner sorry Dylan you have been moved to 2nd spot sweetie. Of course at first Jarod was the bottom of my pile for what he had done to CeCe I mean hello “douchbag”. But after hearing his story, and watching what he goes through to prove to her just how much she means to him. OMG I am won over – sold . Wendy does a fabulous job building up this story and delivering the goods.
Wringing her hands together, desperate to flee, her feet refused to budge. She wanted to hear a word – any word to give her hope. Instead, he stood to his full 6’3” height, and turned to face his audience before loundly declaring, for all to hear, “Look, Kitten,” the word sounded vulgar to her now. “I don’t know what you thing we had, but you are wrong. Just because we did the deed doesn’t mean you are anything more than a wet behind the ear kitten trying to be a tigress in the wild. Run along and play with a ball of yarn, and leave the big game to the ones who know the score.” The cruel weight of Jarod’s words increased with the loud cackling from the Barbie’s.
Her world collapsed.
CeCe turned and ran out of Chase’s without a word to her stunned friends. Her only thought to escape the horrible nightmare playing out before her.
Outside she threw herself in her car and slammed the door before any of her friends could try to console her.
So yeah as you see from the start I was totally against Jarod thinking what a low life putz. But hey the author has to throw in some twists right – I mean come on what is a good romance without some rough roads to traverse first. And rough roads is just what Jarod and CeCe go through in this story. Especially when he is thrust back into her life by her over-bearing, over-protective, adoptive big brother Dylan Cross (mind you ladies this man is dangerously sexy lol)
CeCe has a stalker, and Dylan has hired Jarod as a private investigator to watch over her, whether she likes it or not. Of course Dylan has no clue what happened years ago between these two and CeCe doesn’t know that Jarod has been around a lot longer than she thinks. Ohhhh secrets people come on secrets – we all know what they do…
Movement pulled him from his memories of her body and his analysis of their five-minute reunion. Jarod watched a motorcycle enter the lot on the west side, keeping to that end of the building; he did a few laps then exited the way he came. Always too far away for Jarod to read his tags, but from what he could tell, it was a newer model racing bike. The motorcycle gone, Jarod brought his attention back to CeCe’s, and its owner who could clearly be seen inside. What was she doing? Pushing the driver’s seat all the way back, he got as comfortable as he could, having a feeling it would be a long night. Refusing to massage the constant throb in his leg, he allowed his mind to wander. The upside to this part of his job was he had a lot of time on his hands to play things over in his mind; the down side was he had a lot of time to play things over in his mind – things he spent a lot of time and energy not thinking about. CeCe Cervettie fit that category. She was a double edge sword; she was his talisman, but also his trigger. She was certainly going to make this job harder than anything before. The question was, would he be willing to face the demons he has avoided for years, and if he did, would he live through the fallout?
Phew okay that’s the last teaser I am sharing I don’t want to give to much away but let me say there is fall out and it isn’t pretty but you are going to have to read the book to find out if Jarod is able to make up for his past, if he can figure out who this twisted little pain in the butt stalker is, if Dylan gets a good swift kick from CeCe and if CeCe and Jarod finally get their happily ever after.
Wendy, thank you for yet another amazing installment full of hunky men, beautiful spirited women, and amazing story lines. You can have all the hot men and sexy women in the world in a book but without an amazing story, one full of trials, tribulations, overcoming and love it just isn’t a good read. I am never disappointed when I pick up one of your amazing books. I am head over heals in love with the Hamden series.
I live in New England with my young family. I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
I wish you all happy reading and hope you fall in love with the men of Hamden.
