Ethan O’Connell is extremely successful in his businesses, with a seriously sexy Irish accent and a lethal kind of flare and charm. More than any one man should ever possess. Ethan knew, from the very first moment that he saw her that she is meant to be his. Used to getting the things he wants, he is determined to have her and struggles to control his Irish temper, the reason for his own troubled past. Olivia James is the woman that makes him want more, the kind of girl that would make any man think about forever. Afraid that he can’t live without her and unwilling to lose her, he hides his secrets and ignores his dark desires and fantasies of control.
Eccentric Psychic, Eva Storm is drawn to the energy around them. She knows that they are soul mates bound by past lives and helps the universe steer them together. Ethan is hesitant to believe at first, but there are things he can’t ignore. Things he couldn’t possibly know, but does. Neither of them can deny the dreams and memories that they both share, but Olivia is too afraid to believe and not willing to trust her heart.
Convinced that she is “THE ONLY ONE” for him, Ethan refuses to walk away, vowing that he will never give up on her, even if it means he has to fight hard enough for both of them. Can he control his temper and his needs in order to keep her in his life? Can she heal her past wounds and let him in? Like no other woman in his life, Olivia challenges him with her strong will and sharp sense of humor, making him wonder if she could ever become a willing captive of his dominance. Ethan hopes with all his heart that she will become equally addicted to his love, and a sneaky suspicion that falling in love with Olivia James is about to bring on a shift in the balance of power in his world.
Olivia James is a very relatable character, as many of us know – or are – survivors of domestic violence. I understand 100% why she is wary of trusting ANY man, let alone a man like Ethan. She’s inexorably drawn to Ethan, but is very afraid of her reaction to him – let alone his legendary temper.
Ethan O’Connell is the epitome of alpha male! His dominant, never-take-no-for-an-answer mentality works well in business, but is terrifying to Olivia. He’s tall, athletic, sexy as HELL, and is TOTALLY smitten with Olivia. He is doing his best to jump through all the hoops she tosses in his way, but it is not easy for the often volatile Ethan. He has his own baggage, which is no less daunting to him than Olivia’s is to her.
