Sometimes the hardest role in life is being true to yourself.
Jade Weir did the social scene. She played the ditzy Hollywood socialite and ran with the requisite fast crowds. Until one night and a shooting changed everything. Now she’s ready to go toe to toe with the handsome Sheriff’s deputy, Marlon Cross. Toe to toe or kiss for kiss, whichever comes first. The real Jade isn’t the celebutante from television, and she’s ready to do whatever it takes to prove it.
But is he ready for her?
Marlon liked his quiet and simple existence. No ties means no one gets hurt. And then came Jade. She’s a hurricane in high heels and totally trouble for him. She has the power to raise the ghosts in his past, but his heart won’t let him walk away.
Can they find a way to make the lust simmering between them work or will they simply part as the closest of friends?
Reader Advisory: This book contains anal play, sex on the dining room table and a hero bound and determined to get his way.
Reality can be an eye opening experience especially when your reality is altered by the glamour and deception of an exaggerated lifestyle.
A successful, famous, wealthy Hollywood actress, Jade Weir has chosen to resume her original identity as Jaden Marie Haydenweir and is looking for her one true love. Gone are the Hollywood trappings, but hanging over her head is a very dominating and greedy father who will stop at nothing, including using his daughter’s fame to guarantee the monthly sales of his trash magazine. He never fails to put Jade’s private disasters on the front cover.
Marlon Cross is the easy laid-back type of guy just trying to make his way through life and put the death of his wife behind him. That is until he receives a call from Jaden telling him she is coming back to Ohio and wants to see him again. Marlon doesn’t know whether to give the new Jaden a chance or to believe the never ending gossip.
Jaden and Marlon are both very complicated and intense characters. The situations they find themselves in test their faith and trust in each other and everyone around them. They are surrounded by some very unsavory characters and some angels in housecoats.
While their private time is explosive and revealing, the author puts the reader in the position of not knowing what the truth is and what should come next. When you think you have it figured out, here comes another curve ball. Their relationship centers on reconciliation and a future together but many outside forces threaten them on a regular basis.
Will they end up together or will they just give up? The emotions, the heat and the conflict are almost tangible and suck you in like a vacuum. The meaning behind the title is divulged and is a great surprise that relates to a secondary story throughout the book.
If you have never been exposed to Wendi Zwaduk’s work before Please Remember Me is an excellent place to start.
