He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.

 Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.
 My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.
 And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.

Book Review: 

Can people please stop comparing book to Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to you? Because if a book is good then it has to be good on it's own, not compared and try to look like them to be good. But in this case not even with the comparison works... If i would judge this book by the cover and the book blurb then it would be an A+ but Wanted didn't work at all as a story. I hate to say that a book was bad, but Wanted was just too damn annoying.

Everything about this book is NOT interesting. The storyline is mediocre without a really good idea to work with and when it was mentioned illegal business and dark secrets of the past i was expecting something to surprise me... But it turns out that the dark secrets are basically something that you can guess with a snap of your fingers and the illegal business are legal after all... (asides from one SMALL thingie that doesn't even take two pages to work out). Disappointed? Hell yeah!

I can't even talk about the main girl. Lina or Angie. She has NO personality. NO convictions. NO interests and she's confused about her whole career most of the time and can't just assume to her parents that she wants something different. Not to mention she is an adrenaline junkie... Her whole background story is pretty interesting if J. Kenner had written about a girl that was likable and not bland.  I could not stand her and kept rolling my eyes throughout everything she said. And did i mentioned her OH's? Oh that... Oh this... She couldn't stop so every answer to a question or sentence was a Oh.
 “Oh,” I repeated stupidly.
 “Oh.” I swallowed, suddenly feeling very warm.

Evan was not good because it was too stuck on the stereotype! Yes, we love our bad boys millionaire but make them new and exciting! Not boring and Been-there-Done-That. I just didn't connect with him at all. The only thing that appeared in the ending and could have made him amazing was his sister that only had two pages for her... But Evan was too predictable. You could guess what he would say or do and he's too inconsistent so i gave up trying to like him. And his scenes with Angie were way too forced and not hot at all but rather mechanical.
We touched only in two places—lips and knees—and yet every inch of skin on my body crackled with banked electricity, as if Evan were a storm and I’d been caught unawares.
There was one thing that i loved: Cole and Tyler! I seriously want the next books are about this two so we can get some real action!

I was so disappointed with the Author of the Stark Trilogy! She wrote so many amazing book with great characters but this one really did nothing for her. It was boring and plain and totally not the usual Hot and filled with passion stories that J. Kenner gives us
