FOSTER

I spent the last five years locked in a cage for a crime I didn’t commit.

Crucified by the press and social media. Hated by all.

But now that I’m a free man, I’m determined to prove I’m not the evil mastermind everyone thinks I am.

I just need someone to believe in me.

Someone like Addison James…

ADDISON

Foster Cruise is sexy as hell and worth billions. But he destroyed my family.

He may have gone to prison, but he hasn’t paid nearly enough for what I’ve lost.

He has no idea who I am, but I’m determined to prove what the law failed to—and put him back behind bars where he belongs.

I’ll offer him my body and sell my soul to that handsome-as-hell devil to make things right.

Trouble is, I’m afraid he’s already stolen my heart.

Adult content suitable for 18+
Language and sexual situations.

 

Review

This is the first book that Jani Kay and Normandie Alleman has written together. I have read just about everything that Jani Kay has written but Normandie Alleman is a new to me author. When I read the blurb, I got excited. I was looking forward to a sweet revenge story.

Foster Cruise has spent the last 5 years in prison in upstate New York for a crime that he claims that he did not commit. Fresh out, he relocates to sunny California in an effort to rebuild his life and to clear his name from he crime he is associated to. Fortunately for him, his wealth has been able to help his transition from prison to the real world. Materialistically, anyway. What he finds is that he desperately needs just one person in his life that understands him and believe that he didn’t commit the crimes he served time for.

Addison James’ family was a victim of the crimes that Foster Cruise was committed for. If it wasn’t for him, her family would be in a much better situation. For the past 5 years, Addison has been plotting her revenge against Foster. To make him suffer like he made her family suffer. She had a simple plan. Seduce, infiltrate and implicate. Easy enough, right? Unfortunately for her, it isn’t. She knew he was handsome but what she didn’t know what the real him. Once she starts to discover the man behind the infamous name, she might be too far gone with her heart. Can she carry out her plan for revenge if she has feelings for him?

Although I read this book fairly quickly, I felt like something was missing for me. I just couldn’t fully connect to either character. I’m not sure what held me back. I think I was expecting a little bit more on the revenge part. Their connection was immediate, which I’m fine with but it was pretty much insta-love. I didn’t really get the angst that I was expecting.

I did enjoy Ruby, Addison’s friend. She was a nice breath of fresh air. She was quirky, easy going, rebellious and you never know what that Aussie has up her sleeve.

Overall, I did enjoy this book  and would recommend it if you are looking for a quick read with insta-love and some laughs.

Excerpt

What man doesn’t like to be wanted?

Well, not if you’re me and you’ve just done a stint in jail for a crime you didn’t commit.

The press and social media have crucified me. People hate my guts. Nobody believes that I’m innocent.

Especially the woman who is determined to put me back behind bars because I destroyed her family. She’s hell bent on making me pay for my sins.

I’m starting a new life and putting all that crap behind me.

Except that Addison James won’t let me. She worms her way into my life and my bed until she’s under my skin and I just can’t shake her.

I’m Foster Cruise.

I’m wanted.

About Jani Kay

USA Today Bestselling Author – Jani Kay lives in Western Australia within a ten minute walk to the beach which is one of her favorite places to chill out.

She has been a bookworm all her life – as a voracious reader, she would gladly spend her last dollar on a book. She is always fascinated that for the mere price of a book (often less than the price of a coffee!), she can escape her life for a while and see through someone else’s eyes into their world.

Jani loves the colour red, is a fiery Aries, is impatient and always storming ahead with those ram’s horns, bashing her head…she has a wicked sense of humour and loves laughing.

In her ‘other’ life, Jani is a business woman and a scientist – a creative scientist though – she formulates skin care products and brews up concoctions in her laboratory…

She has 2 beautiful children who have grown into amazing young adults and Jani is very proud of them.

Besides reading and writing, her favorite ‘thing’ is traveling and drinking cocktails on the beach while watching the sun set over the ocean (Sex on The Beach anyone?).

Above all, she believes in Kindness, Karma, Miracles and Magic…
