✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ A Jade's Trick by Lilly Black

Another of my foster author's is Lilly Black. I've been thoroughly enjoying her Jaded Series. Book one, A Jade's Trick drew me in and didn't let go.

A Jade's Trick, the first installment in Lilly Black's Jaded Series, tells the story of Evan Lucien (F), a former runaway left frigid by years of sexual abuse, and Cain Ballantyne, a strikingly handsome billionaire who is accustomed to getting everything he wants all the time...until he meets his match in Evan. Streetwise and hardwired to expect the worst in people, she sees right through him, instantly recognizing him for what he is - a rich playboy just out for a good time, but this playboy comes with much darker desires than she could have imagined. 

Determined to prove her assessment wrong, Cain spares no resource in seducing her, reminding her at every turn that he is the one who will succeed where all others have failed, and when Evan surrenders to his charms, she finds everything she ever wanted. In her, Cain finds everything he never knew he needed, becoming the man he pretended to be to make her his.
On the arm of San Diego's most eligible bachelor, the poor girl from New Orleans finds herself thrusts into the spotlight among the Southern Californian elite, where she learns that none of the people in Cain's world are what they seem.

Everyone has secrets and hidden motives beneath their perfect facades, even Cain himself, and over the course of the four book series, as their tumultuous yet unstoppable love grows, he gradually begins to share his secrets with her amid grand gestures of affection and phenomenal, mind-bending sex, all while a killer hunts among his ex-submissives.

Though bondage is a part of their sex lives, it does not define the characters or Lilly Black's books, less than half of the sex scenes containing BDSM, and even those scenes are sensual, making their story appealing to readers who may not be inclined to seek out erotica focused mainly on BDSM. The Jaded Series is more than erotica, containing a well-woven plot, and various mysteries to be solved throughout the subsequent books. 

A Jade's Trick is available on Amazon and is listed in Kindle Unlimited.

Momma Says: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Cain and Evan's story is thoroughly captivating and erotic. Evan is scarred, both inside and out, and hides behind her snark and wit. When Cain sets his sights on her, what follows is an all-consuming seduction that even the most jaded of us would be hard put to ignore. As Cain introducing Evan to BDSM and she begins to open up, their feelings for each other are almost palpable. 
The story is beautifully written and emotional as Black paints a picture of not just romance and sex, but of obsession, betrayal, love, lust, trust, and even hope. This first book in the series is more than just a love story, it's a journey for this pair as they fight an claw their way through the beginnings of a relationship amid the many pitfalls created by so many around them. 
Lilly Black has given us romance, mystery, and a bit of mayhem with twists and turns that will give you whiplash - right to the very last page. Speaking of the last page, I was floored and can't wait to dive in to book two!
