Review: Jayded by Shevaun Delucia

Release Date: April 10, 2015

Maxine Daniels was made an offer that she couldn’t refuse. She couldn’t think of a better time—after breaking things off with her fiancé—to change cities and merge her company with Saunders Literary Agency. At thirty-three, she isn’t getting any younger, so it’s time to start fresh and leave her past behind.

What she doesn’t anticipate is the diversion that lies ahead. Kyle Saunders is a catastrophic tsunami that enters her life and consumes her world in just a matter of minutes. Everything about him is telling her no, but her heart and the heat between her legs is screaming yes. He was never a factor in her divine plan—nor was she in his.
Kyle is the cliché bachelor; he is a twenty-four-year-old charismatic chick magnet who refuses to settle down. He’s dead set on living the carefree single life—that is—until Max comes strolling in. Then all his ridiculous rules fall to the wayside. Who knew that just one hello could alter their lives forever?

This was definitely an interesting read with lust at first sight and quite a bit of steamy scenes.  These two characters just clicked so easily that they formed a special bond with one another.  The author did a good job of showing this relationship growing from their first meeting until the very end of the book.

We meet Maxine who is out to discover a new life, not happy with the one she was living.  She’s very much a go getter and out to succeed in life, work is her life.  So of course its convenient when she goes for a new job and finds someone from the office, a hot young someone named Kyle, who also happens to be the son of the owners who are about to be her partners.  No, that does not promise any kind of drama at all … not! I think their main difference is their age, she’s much older than he is, but like the old saying goes ‘Age ain’t nothing but a number’.

You can definitely spot the differences though because Kyle reminded me of a stereotypical Bachelor from the city with an accent and a crassness that I reserve for my Jersey and New York boys, I know you know what I’m talking about.  ‘How you doin?’ Anyway even with all of that he begins to grow on me, a softer side is shown as his feelings begin to develop for Maxine without him even realizing it. 

I also really love the side story of his best friend, who is just like him but then begins to catch feelings for the quiet Elise, it’s cute.  And let's not even get started on Maxine's assistant Kinsley who is a firecracker of a friend who goes straight to the point. She is entertainment all by herself.  I can see a book all about her but the question is who would be the mystery guy because she doesn't seem to catch anyones eye or interest, hmmm makes you wonder.  All the characters were great and I could only imagine what it's like working at their company.  Although I could probably do without the stalker, you'll see who I'm talking about super creepy and delusional. 

Overall it was a great read with a story line that is relate able and will keep you occupied from beginning to the very end, with lots of great saucy scenes in between.  The ending will definitely keep you wondering where will the story take you. There's so many ways the story can continue but I hope to get a chance to read more about these characters. 

About the Author:


Shevaun DeLucia lives in upstate New York with her husband, four children, and two dogs. As a stay-at-home mom while her children were young, she fell in love with reading. She indulged in the small moments that took her away from the reality of her loud, overly rambunctious household, bringing her into a world of fantasy. When reading wasn’t enough to satisfy her, she turned to writing, determined to create the perfect ending of her own. 

I received this book from the author, so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
