During her very first date with Conner, Jasmine realizes that she has made a terrible mistake. A jealous and vindictive woman who believes that Jasmine is her rival finds them and decides that she will take care of Jasmine once and for all. Believing that Connor is hers Desiree curses Jasmine to forever want and never to be satisfied.

While Jasmine with the help of her sisters, fights for her life they find themselves at a bar and picking up Mike. Little do they know that he may just be her salvation. Jasmine and Mike are more than attracted to each other and a bond begins to form but can they trust Mike with the truth? Will they ever be able to find Desiree and get her to break the curse? Jasmine and Mike may have found each other but Jasmine is quickly running out of time.

This book was a different kind of story than I am used to by this author. I am a big fan of Tina Donahue and decided to give this one a try. Right from the start I knew that I would enjoy this one as well. Jasmine is such a strong woman. She never gives up and continues to fight until her last breath. Mike is a wonderful man. He has pain and secrets of his own but is more than willing to help Jasmine no matter what the cost is to him. The bond that builds between them turns to love and watching it bloom was a beautiful read. The two make a wonderful couple always caring more about the other than themselves.

Not only do the main characters make this a great read but also the secondary ones make more than an impression on the reader. Jasmine’s sisters and her dear friend Ben definitely endear themselves to the reader as much as Jasmine and Mike do. The love that they all share makes this a wonderful read that should not be missed.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
