TITLE : Transcendent AUTHOR : Shevaun DeLucia RELEASE DATE : January 28th COVER DESIGN BY : George Parulski of Eastway Photography
Love, desire, and the undeniable hunger for another living being is something Jeffrey Bauer knows nothing about. Women have always been drawn to him like moths to a flame. But, he’s been careful to never indulge in the same woman more than once; it’s a rule he has always abided by. A rule that has kept him safe—until now. Jeff’s impervious world now crumbles to the wayside once he crosses paths with her—Elise Jewels. She knocks down his walls with just one glance. She grabs ahold of his soul, without permission, and keeps it hostage. She’s become the exception to his simple rule. Elise screams innocence and purity—a beauty that Jeff doesn’t want to taint. He has to decide to embark on his deepest desires with Elise or to save her from himself by staying far away. Will he be able to fight the irresistible pull she has on him? Or will he allow her to slip away?
This is book 2 in the series,
but can be read as a stand alone.
I would totally recommend reading the series for the background on the other characters, it will flow beautifully
if you already know their personalities.
This was such a quick read!
I was sucked in literally by
the first chapter and couldn't put it down.
Jeff and Elise's story is revealed here.
It's crazy because they truly are polar opposites sexually,
but share some similar struggles within their respective family structure.
I loved watching Elise
come out of her shell slowly.
She just blossomed!
Once she started, watch out now!
There were a couple instances that rather shocked me, but she definitely grew up and finally stood up for herself!
Jeff, well he is a man first off
and they never learn the "right"way.
He of course is a man-whore that takes Elise out and FUBAR's the situation.
Ohh not just that night,
like a million times over.
It's like when a little boy
likes a girl and so he picks on her.
Obviously, he figures out how to do something right and then he
ONLY does it right.
I mean from the cooking,
to the mind blowing Ooooooo's,
to the supportive boyfriend, Everythang!!!
I think these two not only shocked each other, but their friends as well.
This group of friends has more stories to tell and I for one am dying for
Kinsey and Junior's story.

When reading wasn’t enough to satisfy her, she turned to writing, determined to create the perfect ending of her own.
