Jasmine Freeman’s world is about to tumble down around her and the one responsible for it is none other than her first love, Derek Titan. She hasn’t seen him in ten years, and they are both going to learn the truth of what happened back then.
Jasmine grew up wealthy and oblivious to the destruction her father caused all around him. Derek was from the wrong side of the tracks. In ten years their lives will be reversed. He is now a multi-billionaire tycoon and she works hard, but barely gets by due to her father’s unethical business practices.
Derek comes seeking revenge and instead finds out he has a half grown son and the woman he’s been angry with for so many years is not who he thought she was. They both fight against the passion they still feel for each other, but in the end it is irresistible.
Come take the journey with Derek and Jasmine as they rediscover a passion that never died and the lies that kept them apart.
My thoughts (Theo):
I got this book for free on Amazon and because I’ve liked it so much I’ve decided to also review it! This story is not your typical bad-boy-billionaire-meets-sweet-woman. No, not at all. This book is about having everything you’ve ever wanted and then the inevitable happens: you are left alone, hanging and wanting to go back.
Derek Titan is one of the wealthiest men alive. He is strong, stubborn, and ready to conquer everything, got to top from scratch and wants everyone to show him respect. He is also charismatic and to die for, but that is everything he does not want to be. He has only one goal: destroy the love of his life.
Jasmine Freeman is someone sweet, innocent and still remembering about the love of her life. She has little money, even though she grew up a rich girl, but only because her tyrant father is too greedy. She has a son and ready to conquer the world to give it to him. She has only one goal: never let the father of her child know that he has a child.
Everything starts with Derek and Jasmine back in high school, with them ready to leave the world and face the big cities. She wants everything for him and he wants everything for her. Their love is strong and beautiful and even though they are both young adults when you know you just know. But an unhappy truth comes to surface: Derek leaves her in front of the church before they depart for New York. The other unhappy event: Jasmine leaves Derek a day before they meet in front of the church.
Jasmine father does not agree with their relationship, so – an influence to the local bank – he withdrawals the money that was supposed to fund Derek’s father business. And he does so much more. He lets Derek know that Jasmine does not actually love him, that she is not actually interested in him and makes Derek leave her. But he also keep the appearances of a good father and let’s Jasmine get broken hearted. He wanted everything for Jasmine, but when he finds out about the pregnancy he gets mad. He almost gets her out of the house.
She does not budge; she goes to college with a child. She’s on her own, but she promised never to let anyone disturb her peace. Until one day when her father’s firm is taken from him. She is working at the firm and it is not happy to discover the new management. She is practically in shock when she finds Derek sitting in her father’s chair. And he is practically stunned to see the betraying girl he once loved and still does, in his office claiming that she will keep her job.
He forces her to work with him and soon he finds out about his child. At first everything goes south. Happens so fast and she does not know what to do anymore. Her child is thrilled to finally meet his father and always lives with the fear that he might leave again. But Derek does not want to hear about that, because he will never leave his child if he knew about him.
The romance starts to show, and even though Derek sometimes can become demanding, he shows his sweet face too. And the romance is so sweet and beautiful sometimes that you just want to take his head off. But hey, in the end things sort out.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read. Something sweet, yet sometimes making you want to scream.
Happy readying everyone!
