Lessons I learned growing up: 1) Take care of yourself. Everyone else will let you down. 2) People come and go. Mostly, they go. It’s best not to get too close. 3) Lying and stealing are acceptable survival techniques. 4) Hide anything important.

Now that I’m free from that life, unlearning these lessons is proving almost impossible. Falling in love didn’t cure me, but th

Wow! Someone else said that Michele Zurlo doesn't disappoint and they were completely right. "Drawing on Love" continues the story begun in the novella "Forging Love." Jessica discovers she's pregnant as Jesse declares his love. Their relationship is one of serious miscommunication and pain as well as joyful lovemaking and very hot sex. Jessica is still struggling to figure out who she is after her 3 year coma. She has missing memories and long lasting injuries from the car accident that caused ...more

WOW WOW WOW! I have loved Jessica and Jesse since they first came together. But I knew in my heart, with everything Jessica has been through, that her story would not be an easy one but would easily touch my heart. I must say that Ms. Zurlo did not disappoint me in that department. In fact she wrote both Jesse and Jessica with such clarity and emotion that It seemed like I was tagging along on their journey and feeling everything they go through right along with them; the highs as well as the lo ...more

WOW! This book is a breathtaking and amazing start for any Trilogy! Drawing on Love is the first book in “A SAFE Security Trilogy: Jesse and Jessica Book”. Michele Zurlo, just couldn’t tell their story in one book - she needs three books - LOL The series Safe Security is intriguing, well written and great reads and we learn about Brea and her sister Jessica. The novella “Forging Love” is helpful to read before the Trilogy. Reading ALL in order will be a rewarding experience and many hours of enj ...more

DRAWING ON LOVE is the second book in the Mercenary Hearts series and the fourth in the Safe Security series. This is a mini-series within the Safe Security series and needs to be read in the order of release.

DRAWING ON LOVE was provided to me within the PLEASURE BOUND anthology (no longer available).

Jesse is showing unbelievable patience and that he ‘sees’ Jessica. To be truly seen is something some women (and men) struggle with believing can be done.

As Jessica travels into the cities of her p

Loved it❤️ This is one talented author. My second book by this author and I’m so tempted to go out and buy them all. This is the book to read after fifty shades because this author can totally take you to the explanation why Dom/ sub relationships work. The book is just enthralling. Jesse has his work cut out for him trying to get Jessica to become his submissive. I love the way he calls her brat, and doesn’t take no excuses from her.

What did I like? The main characters are intense with the pu

Wow, Just Wow some of Michele Zurlo's very best work! The First Book I personally have been waiting on between Jesse Foraker and Jessica Zinn is nothing short of AMAZING!
Jesse fell in love with Jessica the very first time he laid eyes on her. Jesse an Alpha/Dominant from SAFE Securities. Jessica grew up with a man who kidnapped her and her sister raising them as his own. Teaching them how to Con, steal and lie. Being in a Coma for 3 years Jessica wants to take control of her lif

Shelves: bdsm, 5-star-reads
Jesse and Jessica seem perfect together. They are opposite and none of their pieces fit. A few of their pieces fit, but overall, the base of who they are as people, don’t fit. Jesse is extremely clear in who he is, what he wants, and how he feels. He has no problem articulating that and makes it clear to Jessica at every turn. Jessica has spent so much of her life adjusting, and being what she is supposed to be, she ends up going along with what Jesse wants. After all, this is how she was raised ...more

The things that happened to Jessica and her sister as a child shouldn't happen to anyone, ever, but they did and now Jessica has to find a way to live with her past her present and her future. Including the little dividend she got during her relationship/affair with Jesse. His feelings for her are so confusing, because she doesn't think she can ever have strong emotions like that for anyone even herself. This is a really good story that might have some triggers for some people, but it's deep, em ...more

The three Mercenary Hearts Books center around Jessica and Jesse's love story. The three books take you on a journey throughout there relationship. Jessica had a really hard life that got worse. After waking for a coma, the life she thought she had was false. The man who was there protecting her fell in love with her when she was still rehabing. One glorious night bonds the two forever, but before Jessica can commit, she needs to find a part of herself she lost before the accident. Jesse is the ...more

Well, my gracious ... I was surprised! I have to admit that I wasn't Jessica's number 1 fan. I understand that the way she navigates the world is because of the trauma she survived, but I couldn't find a way in to her, a way to connect. But Jesse did ;) Holy cow ... (one moment ... I have the vapors ...)

Jesse really sees Jessica, and he meets her right where she is. In fact, the more he loved her, the more I was able to. I am so excited that this is a trilogy! I can't WAIT to see how the rest un

Drawing on Love

Jessica was a really messed up woman from all that she’s been through. And her boyfriend/ bodyguard hasn’t made it easier on her. Instead it was making it harder on her. Jesse was a Dom and wanted a sub, but that’s something Jessica just couldn’t see herself being. As much as she tried to please him, she just couldn’t do it. She loves him but she didn’t think she could give up that kind of control over to him. Her heart and dreams have been taken away from her in a sense, she want

I have read many stories from the author and I must say I have always been impressed at how the characters are brought to life throughout the story. This one was no different. Jessica has been through so much but through it all you could she how strong she was becoming and has become. Then you have Jesse who is a Dom and wants a sub. These two so very different yet has so much passion and intense chemistry really brings them to life. This was another enjoyable story and I look forward to reading ...more

I absolutely loved the story of Jesse and Jessica. This book had me crying on several occasions. Such a passionate, compelling story of Jessica who is broken beyond repair and Jesse who just wants to be with her and Jessica feels that she cannot be what he needs despite him reassuring her that she is everything to him. I fell in love with the both and I desperately need to read the next books to find out what happens to them. Worthy of 5 stars and definitely recommend this book. Thank you Michel ...more
