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.
Evan gradually begins to reveal her past to Cain, and she learns that he hasn't told her the last of his secrets either. With glimpses into Lucy's past, Caleb's marriage, and the events that turned Catherine's heart to ice, A Deeper Shade of Jade is a rollercoaster ride that comes crashing into the station with a cliffhanger so bad, you will curse the name Lilly Black.
When Cain returns to San Diego to find his life completely turned upside down, he leaves it behind, taking a job offer he never thought he'd take, and Evan could not be more excited to follow him. Their world becomes a dizzying haze of sex, lies, and alcohol until an unexpected event brings it all to a screeching halt.
Amid scorching sex scenes as Cain and Evan push each other's sexual boundaries, Precious Jade takes the reader into Evan's pasts as she tries to overcome her step father's abuse in order to build a future with Cain without letting it destroy her, and the incident in his past that left Cain so possessive and untrusting is revealed, changing the game by devastating a major player. By the end of the book, you won't know who to hate...except for the killer, whose shadow falls upon Cain and Evan no matter where they run.
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. This series is more than erotica, containing a well-woven plot, and as we learned in the first two books in this series, things are never as they seem. Precious Jade is no exception, taking the reader on a fast-paced ride full of unexpected twists and turns that ends with another of Lilly Black's shocking cliffhangers that will leave you anxiously awaiting the release of the fourth and final book.
