Stern Desire by Leah Shay #bookreview #giveaway

by Leah Shay

Her love can heal him; his love can set her free.
The moment Kyra walked into billionaire Jared Stern’s hospital room and introduced herself as his nurse he knew that this paragon of loveliness was what he needed to mend his damaged soul. Jared knew he had to have her. They shared an instant mutual attraction. Drawn together by some irresistible force they stirred emotions in each other that neither had felt in years. But, Jared’s dark inescapable secrets plagued him, and they were a constant reminder why he was not right for her. Kyra’s trust in men had been severely destroyed and for years she felt nothing but mistrust and anger towards them. Jared’s mysterious nature reminded Kyra why she had built a fortress around her heart protecting herself from men like him. Reluctantly, Kyra gave way to Jared’s relentless pursuits. Will she jeopardized her career knowing that anything other than a nurse-patient relationship could be risky and lead to her losing her job or even her license? Will Jared’s secrets smother their hot steamy love affair, or will he do the unthinkable to trap Kyra into
the relationship? One thing about secrets they rarely stay in thedark.

My review:

Stern Desire is a classic love story. Man with a dark past, a woman that has been burned too many times….they find each other and despite all the obstacles try and make it work. Each is hesitant (well Jared less so), but neither can deny the growing tension between them. They back and forth between them was fascinating to watch. Kyra has more than just her heart on the line, her job and career are both on the line. Normally this type of story isn’t my thing but I found myself wrapped up in the story and the characters. Jared is the ultimate rich boy player who shows that money isn’t always the key to everything. It’s a dark, mysterious, slightly romantic story. Make sure you have a block of time before you sit down to read. You will want to read this until the end.

About the author:

Leah Shay grew up on a small beautiful carefree island in the Caribbean. With the warm blue Caribbean Sea as her backyard she loved to walk the white sandy beach and got loss in the stories unfolding in her head. She had always been an avid reader and spent all her free time nose-deep in a book, or telling stories to enthused listeners. She loves reading, dancing, traveling, and music. As a child she would read anything she could get her hands on. Her local library was her favorite place, and looked forward to every weekend her mom would take her there. Her dream was to become a teacher, but fate led her down another fulfilling career path. She is currently a part-time registered nurse with a whole lot of stories to tell. To relieve her cluttered mind of the many stories floating around in her head she finally decided to put them down on paper, hence the first book
in the Stern Desire series was born. Currently she lives in Miami, Florida with her husband and two children. She just can’t be away from year round summer and beautiful beaches.
