Love, Passion and Power: Part 2, by Whitley Cox

Love, Passion and Power: Part 2 (The Dark and Damaged Hearts #2)


The moment Kendra Black gave into temptation and took Justin Williams to bed she knew there was no turning back. There was something in him that she needed, that she longed for —safety, he made her feel safe, he made her feel cherished, he made her feel like for once she finally had a shot at love and a happily ever after. A damaged heart —so much like her own, she was drawn to him like a moth to a flame, an attraction so strong she would risk burning her wings just to be near him.

Now they are preparing to move in together and start their life. She’s eager to play sidekick to her superhero, to embark on new adventures both in and out of the bedroom. Kendra’s opened her heart, but trust doesn’t come easy, and love takes two hearts to make it work. Can Justin find a way to win over the love of his life, before her old demons come creeping back and cause Kendra to cut and run?


My review:

** I volunteered to read an advance reviewer copy of this book. **

What a powerfully emotional “Kendra and Justin” focus. The insecurities were more prevalent, the personal speeches more profound, and the sex was unbelievingly erotically charged. I fully enjoyed seeing how two strong and independent people stayed true to themselves as well as to each other even through the many obstacles placed before them. “Dark and Damaged” has never been so enticing.

Love, Passion and Power: Part 1, by Whitley Cox

Love, Passion and Power: Part 1


When personal trainer Kendra Black saw millionaire Justin Williams walk through her door all she saw was money and a practiced swagger. A man who’s used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But Kendra is startled to realize that there is more to Justin than meets the eye, he’s kind and funny and brilliant, and she wants him, desperately. Unable to resist Kendra or her fiery spirit and zest for life, right from the start, Justin pursues her, only her troubled childhood holds her back. She’s been running from love for so long, she doesn’t know how to stop and let it catch up.

Elated when Kendra finally gives into their attraction, Justin jumps in with both feet, only his hectic and demanding life continues to interfere, and Kendra’s past comes creeping back and the two are tested. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionate and physical adventure, Justin discovers Kendra’s secrets and fears while exploring and uncovering his own wild and dark desires.


My review:

** I volunteered to read an advance reviewer copy of this book. **

What a tale!  An unusual journey of self-acceptance through all the trials and tribulations that life has thrown at “Kendra”.  At times I envied her, respected her, even wanted to be her.  Then there were the times I thought she was being stubborn, whiny, and ungrateful.  Yet through it all she remained true to herself.  “Justin” is one hot alpha that has a few quirks (that I hope get explored) and his workaholic and demanding schedule dominate his life – as it would for any typical millionaire.  And yet the two could not be better matched to complement each other.  I cannot wait to see where the story goes!
