Jayded is a great story. It's told in both Max and Kyle's POVs. I loved the fact that we get to see what both of them were thinking.

Kyle is a ladies man. He not one those cocky ladies man were it take you a while to like them. Kyle is a very likable character right from the beginning. He works at his parents' company Saunders Literary Agency. His older brother Junior works there too.

Max was ready to get married to her fiance. She breaks it off and heads to New York. She interviews to become a

This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest Review

This was a amazing story. Shevaun Delucia is a incredible storyteller and knows how to bring the sizzle into any story! Right from page one Shevaun's creative and intriguing characters kept me captivated until the very end.

I loved Max and Kyle's chemistry, they feel as if they are coming up off the page to act out the scenes for you. It is so real and raw and Shevaun leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the twists and t

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 convenie

Jayded by Shevaun Delucia was such an awesome read. It tells an amazingly fun story of a May/December office relationship

Kyle was a wise for his years Alpha male with no intention of settling down until he meets the lovely Max. She set his heart and umm groin on fire from the moment they met and the attraction between them made for some hot and steamy moments.

I enjoyed the way Shevaun expressed his immediate possessiveness of Max. I nearly spit out my drink when she used the phrase "pee on my t

I was lucky enough to get a free copy of this book for an honest Review.

I thought the book was well written and I like it from the first page. I loved the story of Kyle and Maxine. Not only did it have loads of saucy scenes in it but it also had a storyline and romance. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the ending I hoped for more it really felt like the author ran out of ideas for a endi

Maxine was looking for a change. She needed a change of scenery. A change of jobs. So when she decides to look into working for a larger family owned agency she's not sure what she will find. Does she want to work for someone else? Is this the right place to start over?

Kyle is the son of the agency owners. He is schmexy, partying man-ho. When he gets a look at Maxine, he knows she should be off limits, but he can't help himself.

Max and Kyle start a hot office romance that t

Fear comes in all forms and for Kyle Commitment is his biggest fear. That is until he meets Maxine. She owns her own publishing company in South Carolina, but she wants to do better and maybe a bit bigger.

I loved this book. It is well written and developed. I fell in love with the characters. Kyle is 24 years old, works for his parents literacy agency and likes to play the field. Max is a 33 year old business woman who is considering merging her publishing company with the one Kyle's family owns. Max and Kyle are attracted at first sight but neither is looking for something serious. I highly recommend the book to romance lovers. There are quite a few steamy scenes.

This book pulled me in from the very first chapter and kept me wanting more all the way to the end. I fell in love with Kyle and Maxine. They are the type of characters you connect with and feel like you are friends with.

This book had me laughing and gasping all throughout it and left me wanting to know what will happen next.

Jayded: to be sexually pleasured to a point where all other lovers are inferior

This is the first book I've read by Shevaun, I appreciate her reaching out to me to review her book! When you first meet Maxine, she's getting out of relationship where she felt suffocated. She's ready to start over in a new place. I really liked Maxine, she has her head on straight and knows what she wants. She's a great example of what happens when you work hard an

Jayded was a fantastic book. I couldn't put it down. I would love to see follow up stories about other characters.

Kyle is your typical 24 yr old player. He works for his parents publishing company. Maxine comes along to join the company as a partner. Nine years his senior, she refuses at acknowledge the attraction she feels towards Kyle. Not to mention... Hello... Bosses son! But the attraction is way too much. They begin a something more t

So I'm reading the Forbidden Romance series backwards, but that is okay! I first was introduced to Shevaun when I read Nirvana. I got a glimpse of the characters that I have met. This is the first book in the series and I can see the why so many people liked it. It's a story about a new beginnings for one and another finds what he was looking for.

Maxine is trying to start over, she is moving to a new place and letting go of extra baggage. She recently merged her company with Saunders Literary A

I hate what Max went through growing up, I am just glad she had her brothers there for her. Kyle is your typical 24 year old bachelor, and loving his life. Max knocks him completely off his feet. Love does not know age, so age should not matter. The chemistry between these two is off the charts, and let me tell you it is hot. I am really happy with the way the book ended, who would have known. You will not be sorry for one clicking this book.

This was my first book by DeLucia. Kyle and Maxine meet through work when her business merges with his family's & they begin a hot office romance which they keep hidden from everyone mainly because of their difference in age. They are really cute together & have some great chemistry. Although the ending felt a little rushed to me it was a enjoyable read.

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, determin
