Jasmine Nichols is a control freak.
When she graduates from college as valedictorian with a degree in social services, her friend and mentor Jill Swanson offers her a job, but with one condition. She has to take two weeks off and just have fun. Taking the instructions to heart, Jasmine goes to a club called Debauchery and has a sizzling encounter with a sexy stranger.
Ex-pro football player Gabriel Johnson is done playing the field.
Gabe is tired of meaningless relationships, but when he meets a mysterious, beautiful, blue-eyed blonde at Debauchery and the chemistry is undeniable, he knows he’s finally found the one. What he didn’t expect was for her to freak out and run off.
Jasmine thought she made a clean getaway, so needless to say, she’s shocked when she finds herself face to face with the hot guy from the club once again.
He’s Jill’s. Half. Brother.
Gabe wants to pick up right where they left off and doesn’t waste any time convincing her. Jasmine’s blown away by the intensity of their relationship. How can she control something that makes her feel so wild and uninhibited?
But Jasmine can’t handle the pressure.
First, she’s confronted with old insecurities. Then suddenly, her brother has a secret he’ll only share with Gabe, the father who abandoned her shows up—at Gabe’s instigation—and a professional tragedy is the last straw.
What happens when it all falls apart?
Is being with Gabe more than she can handle?

4.5 Star Review
"My mother gave birth to my twin brother and me when she was eighteen years old. Life was perfect, until my mother acquired encephalitis not long after our birth. The detrimental damaged was irreversible, but our grandparents stepped in."
Jasmine took the events for what they were. It was not an excuse to run wide and blame everyone around her, no. It was what led to her future...the future of social work. She worked very hard to obtain her Master's Degree and become a savior for those families like her own.
After all the struggles her family faced were what brought Jill in to their lives, and Jill was not only a social worker herself, but a friend. The best kind.
One night out led to one unforgettable first encounter. Jasmine had no idea what came over her but the first chance she got to escape the man who had her mind and body racing, she bolted.
Never in her wildest dreams had she expected to find him later when being introduce to Jill 'Older' brother.
Now the heat was own and she was no longer sure she wanted to run from it.
Gabe is intense and does not even attempt to hide how attracted he is to her. He says whats on his mind and at times it is startling.
Jasmine finds herself having to face a past that was not sure she ever wanted to deal with. Things take a heavy emotional toll on her and she pulls herself away from everyone, needing just a little space to heal. Will this space only drive a wedge between her and the man she ran from? Or will they fight for what is theirs?
