Jade Newton knows she's not a beautiful woman. She'd been told all of her life that she didn’t have what it took to interest a man. After many failed dates, and embarrassing moments, she finally decides to call an end to all dating. On the walk home, on the final date, Jade is attacked. She tried to fend off her attacker, but it's too late as the world goes dark.

One feminine scream, that was all it took to stop Braxton on his way from another kill.

He knows he should ignore it, but he can't. Finding an unconscious woman in the alleyway about to be assaulted, he has no choice but to put a stop to it. Death is all he knows, and that is exactly what he offers.

As for the woman, he takes her to the warehouse where he is currently staying, and helps her.

She is not supposed to ask any questions. Her mystery man keeps on turning up. She doesn’t know his name, but she finds herself falling for the man who saved and protected her.

He needs to leave her alone. Jade is not part of his world, but Braxton finds himself going back again and again, and again. He cannot stop himself. There is no room in his life for love. Or is there?



He took a step toward her. Jade finally seemed to be wising up, because she took a step back, then another one, and another, until she couldn’t go anywhere. He had trapped her in the corner of her kitchen with nowhere to go. He pressed his hands either side of her, locking her against his body and the counter.

“You’re boring,” he said.

She rolled her eyes, and rather than looking insolent, she looked so cute. “Tell me something I don’t know.”

He smiled. “You’ve been told you’re boring?”

“Many times. Trust me. Throw your insults at me, mystery man. I’ve heard them all before.” She lifted her hand and began to list them. “Ugly, plain, bland, boring, waste of time. Not worth it. Can’t remember you. You need plastic surgery. Do you want me to continue?”

“You don’t need to, I got the drift. Were these said by some of those asshole dates?” he asked.

She nodded. “And my mother.”

Braxton frowned. “Your mother?”

“Yes, she didn’t want to give me any kind of false … feelings. She told me I wasn’t a pretty girl.” She shrugged.

Now he wanted to hurt her already dead mother.

“No woman should ever tell her child that.”

“Why not?”

“It’s cruel.”

“But it’s the truth.”

“You’re not ugly.”

“You don’t need to lie to me.” She shook her head at him. “I don’t even know your name.”

“What does my name have to do with anything?” he asked.

“If you liked the way I look, I bet you would have told me your name.”

He tutted. “You think you know ugly.” He took her hand and placed it against his face. “I know ugly.”

“No, you’re not ugly.”

He laughed. The man who had given him the scars when he was nothing more than a boy had promised him he would never be pretty again.

“Don’t lie, Jade,” he said.

She surprised him by cupping his face and staring into his eyes. “I don’t think you’re ugly and I’m not lying. I don’t like lying, and I will not lie to you.”

He found that incredibly hard to believe. Everyone lied. Why did she have to be so different? He didn’t get it. She was infuriating and annoying, and he was getting tired of thinking about her. Gripping the back of her neck, he had to destroy whatever he had built up in his mind, or in her mind. He had to end it.

Slamming his lips down on hers, he expected her to fight to beg him to stop, to demand it. He wanted her to hurt him, reject him, make it easier to forget him.

But she didn’t.

At first, Jade did nothing.

Her hands were still on his face, but she wasn’t kissing him back. He was about to end the kiss when he felt her move. Her hands slid around the back of his neck, and then pulling him against her.

Braxton didn’t hesitate to bring her flush against him. One of his hands still held the back of her neck, the other slowly slid down her body, going toward the curve of her ass, to grip the flesh. He heard her sudden moan. It was nearly a whimper, and then another guttural moan that filled the room. He loved how plump her ass was. She fit against him so right.

He didn’t want to let her go. He loved the shape of her tits as they pressed against his chest. She felt so good.

Sliding his tongue across her lips, he intended to scare her, but now, all he wanted to do was explore her. His cock hardened. It had been a long time since he had a nice, hard fuck.

Jade let out a moan and he broke the kiss, staring into her eyes. Grabbing her hand, he walked her away from the kitchen, going straight to her bedroom.

“What are we doing?” she asked.

“You know what we’re doing.”

Plain Jade By Sam Crescent Jade Newton is thirty years old and never had a decent date in her life. After having been told her whole life that she is plain and boring, not beautiful or likely to be ever wanted she still tries to date, to fund her happily ever after but is unlucky in love. After another disastrous date she is attacked and rescued by Braxton. Braxton is everything she never knew she needed it wanted and Jade quickly becomes the centre of Braxton's dangerous world. He can't keep away from her but also struggles to stay. I loved this story so much and loved Braxton even if at times I wanted to shake him lol. It was so well written but emotional too. I felt for Jade so much, to be told all your life even by those who are supposed to love and protect you that you are nothing special was just so very sad, I know she felt is was setting her up to not have false hope but my heart broke for her. As for Braxton his back story was also heartbreaking and you could feel so much as to why he acted the way he did at times once you knew the truth. If ever there were two characters destined to find happiness and to fall in love and most of all be loved it was Jade and Braxton. I adored them both and am glad that I got to read their story and I know you will too. Happy Reading. 5 out of 5 stars Please note that I was given an arc of this book for my honest review which is exactly what I have given.
