From USA Today best-selling authors W Winters and Amelia Wilde comes a sinful romance with a touch of dark and angst that will keep you gripping the edge of your seat … and begging for more.
I should have known when I couldn’t keep my eyes off her that this would be a mistake.
I was hired to protect her, this woman who’s lost everything yet there’s an obvious fire that blazes behind her beautiful gaze. She stares back, daring and tempting me. It calls to a side of me that’s darker and longs to tame her.
We both have secrets, we both have a past we’re not ready to face. More than that, we both want to get lost in each other, falling into a forbidden game of control and power. Of submission and dominance.
The moment she agrees to my terms, I know I’ve crossed a line. One of many rules I’m willing to break. No one can know, not a soul, but secrets in the life I lead never last for long.
Loved it. Willow never disappoints. Such an intriguing read55
The story of Ella and Zander is intimately woven and unfolds in an intricately deep and dark fashion. I was sucked in within a few pages and was lost in their world. I can’t wait to see how their story continues and am counting the days until I can return to their love story.55
Love the Way You Kiss Me is one flaming hot story. When there is an instant connection but it is forbidden, what shall one do? Zander is an employee of The Firm, the private security company that has been hired to protect and look after Ella, the social media socialite. All her life, Ella has been under the social media microscope. She was born into wealth and has always gotten what she's wanted. She lived her life the way she wanted and not at all shy about allowing others to see her wants and desires. However, a fatal incident has placed Ella out of the spotlight and living in darkness. What happened to change Ella from the carefree, outspoken, and flamboyant woman? Zander notices this spark in Ella the moment he sees her in the courtroom. There is this magnetic pull he can't explain and she feels it too. One of many that have sworn to watch over and protect her, Zander is the only one who doesn't know why Ella is in the state that she is in. Curiosity soon takes over and Zander finds himself looking into Ella's past. What he discovers confirms why he feels this connection with her. He knows that he can give her what she wants and needs to get better. To return to that woman she once was. However at what price? Can Zander maintain his professional relationship and the oath he has taken as a member of The Firm, or will it all go down because his desire to give Ella what she wants and needs will ruin them both?45
Honestly, I don’t know where to start with this review. At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it, because if I’m honest I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. Then BAM, I’m hooked on Ella and Zander and couldn’t quit reading. Didn’t see the ending coming and I knew I didn’t like that slimy Kam for a reason. Need to second book now!55
This was a really good story by these two authors. You couldn’t even tell it was co-written. Their words flowed seamlessly throughout. I haven’t read a BDSM book in a while and I was not disappointed. Zander and Ella are thrown together by the place he works at. The Firm is a protection agency and that is what they are doing. Ella is mysterious and I wanted to know so much about her. Zander is just as much a mystery. When they first met, Zander felt something he hasn’t in a while. Some of the questions I had were answered, but now I have more. Willow and Amelia did pull out the passion and feelings with these two. This is a slow-burn romance with some suspense. There is a connection that you can’t deny that they have. I just can’t wait to read the next part in Zander and Ella’s story.45
This was intense in so many ways! Zander exudes intenseness just by being. Ella’s obviously gone through something seriously intense that you have the jist of, just not all the facts yet. And the feelings and connection between the two of them? You guessed it, INTENSE!!! The chemistry is 🔥🔥🔥 I was so involved in the story I didn’t realize I was at the end!! And now I cannot wait to find out what happens next!!55
This book, I think, is much slower moving than what I’m used to from W. Winters. Normally, I can’t put her books down and stay up until the wee hours to finish one. This was a much slower read. There is excellent chemistry between Ella and Zander, and the angst is quite palpable. There is great intrigue in each other’s past. Even though the story is slow to build, it is definitely worth the read. I’m anxious to read the next book, but I do hope it packs more a punch a little faster than the first.45
Zander Thompson works for The Firm which his brother Cade started. They have a background in law and psychiatry but also have military backgrounds. They are more than bodyguards and Cade is wanting to move The Firm into more high-end private markets. Ella Bordeu has suffered a great deal. She needs The Firm to guard and protect her. She gets to go home that she hasn't been in for several years. They remove anything she can use to hurt herself and place cameras throughout the house to monitor her. Zander finds out things from Ella's past and figures out what she needs. Zander and Ella keep what they are doing together from The Firm. This is a duet so it does end in a cliffhanger.45
OMG! I am in love with the story of Ella and Zander 💜 First — if you don’t like cliffhangers or have no interest in needing to read two books to get the whole story, then this book is not for you. If you don’t mind those, you only have to wait two months for the conclusion in “Love the Way You Hold Me”. This story is written from both Ella and Zander’s points of views and includes a forbidden relationship, D/s role play, mysterious moments, angst, and suspense. I love the instant chemistry that Ella and Zander have from the moment their eyes meet. The suspense of ‘will they, won’t they’ is fun, the two of them engage in some bantering and teasing that will make you smile, and the way Zander gets Ella to open up is amazing. Zander enjoys taking care of Ella but he has his own trauma from the past so he tries hard to deny his attraction to her at first. You eventually find out that Ella tried to commit suicide and that landed her in a mental health facility but not what caused her to try to kill herself. Ella’s manager Kamden, seems a bit sketchy by trying to control her and what goes on around her. I can’t help to think maybe he had something to do with her suicide attempt. This book leaves me with so many questions about what happened in the past to bring Ella to this point in her life and what the future holds for her and Zander. I am looking forward to the conclusion of their story! I received a complimentary copy of this book and am voluntarily giving an honest review55
Love the way you kiss me by Willow Winters, and Amelia Wilde was a page turned from the beginning. This book is sexy and angsty. Ella and Zander, we're hot; the twist and suspense get to you faster, but worth it; this is a BDSM story and a good one. The relationship they form is beautiful. I can't wait for the next book.55
