Review: "Vouloir" by J.D. Chase

  cooltext1932662140 Vouloir Cover

Vouloir: French meaning ‘to want’.

Want: To have a desire to possess something or someone; To have a strong desire to do something; To wish for something or someone; To desire sexually; To require something to be attended to in a particular manner.

Sexual Therapist by day and desirable Domme by night, La Veuve Noire is struggling to keep up with demand for her services. Whether it’s fixing them up or tying them down, Veuve’s skills are legendary. Juggling her demanding roles with looking after a mysterious nineteen year old, the Kid, her life is a balancing act. But the tart with a heart cannot resist taking on ‘just one more’ client. The problem is, there’s always ‘just one more’ client, and each one appears more needy than the last. Like Dean, the barman who’s taken advantage of his drunken boss and has to face up to being a flop between the sheets. Like Dan, a teenager in crisis who is contemplating the unthinkable. Juggling so much inevitably means that something gets dropped occasionally. La Veuve Noire, The Black Widow, hates to fail at anything and like everything in life, the higher the stakes, the greater the potential loss. With everyone turning to her in sheer desperation, she turns to her usual means of escape: the club, Vouloir. But Vouloir now holds a reminder of a distant past she strives to forget. Blond hair, blue eyes and unmistakable dominance tinged with danger. Is Jones the key to the Kid’s future? Or will he simply unlock the painful past? This three part series runs parallel/post parallel with Rouge Passion and features some of RP’s characters but it can be read as a standalone series.

La Veuve Noire is a woman with a past. It's one so fierce that she has boxed it up and thrown it away. When she became The Black Widow that part of her life was dead. Does it still cause a few problems? Of course, but she's a woman who knows her heart and her mind. She has a heart made of gold and that causes her to become attached easily to her patients. She has a way about her that even as a character gets you hooked in easily and quickly.  She's the type of woman that has that crass yet classy way about her that lets you know she's in control, but will go bitch psycho if you piss her off. It also causes clients to attach to her easily. This is what happens to Dan, her newest client. He has horrible self esteem even if he doesn't realize it. As La Veuve Noire begins to boost it we seem him go through some extreme circumstances.  He's beyond attracted to La Veuve Noire, but most people are. He's the hottie you see then realize there's issues, namely his mother. Then there is Jones, a man that scares her as much as he attracts her. He's a reminder of what has been and she can't see what could be. He's kind hearted and has witnessed great traumatic events during his years in the Royal Navy. He's also the one person that The Kid will open up to. The Kid is just that, a kid with a horrendous past. It's one that we get bits and pieces of through out the book. I know that when it all comes out it will be heart wrenching.

This story isn't what I expected, it's much more. There is always something going on and it's not just another BDSM book full of sex. There is sex there and it's STEAMY, but these characters all have their place in each others lives as well as in the story. By the end you get to see the whole theory of how we all are connected in some way and this is how they've met each other and taken that place. Toward the end I thought I knew how things were going to progress and end. No! Not at all. The end is a complete mind f*ck and I can't wait to find out the answers to just...How???  This book has twists, but you don't feel like your on a roller coaster. It has a steady pace and the events flow flawlessly together. The only thing I had a problem with were the initials for things. I admit I had to google to figure it out and then go on reading. I absolutely loved this book and can't wait for the next one in the series to come out. I want answers!


  I love reading - almost as much as I love writing.. I relish the sheer escapism of losing myself in a book that grips me and takes me on an emotional roller coaster. I regularly mourn the passing of a good book - am I the only one who turns the pages more slowly when you don’t want a great book to end? I love a good steamy romance and I adore sexy alpha males. I also have more than a passing interest in BDSM (nod, nod … wink, wink). One day, I put pen to paper (well fingers to keyboard, actually) and the Orion the Hunter series was born. Little did I know that, at that moment, I was sowing the seeds of change. For, just a few months later, as a somewhat bewildered Amazon Kindle bestselling Indie author, I quit my career as an education professional to write full time. Scary stuff, I think you’ll agree. 2013 was a very difficult year for me for personal reasons. It taught me how fragile life is and how important it is to grab it with both hands and ride the hell out of it. So in 2014, I began my comeback with the Amazon #1 Bestselling Erotica/Romantic Erotica bestselling series, Rouge Passion. I also met many of my favourite authors and so many lovely readers at my first signing event in Edinburgh. I flipped Stu Reardon’s kilt! Happy days … I have big plans for 2015. I’m signing at several more author events around the UK and I’m pouring my heart and soul into what I consider my best series yet - by far! Cue Passion Noire, a three part series revolving around La Veuve Noire - a sexual therapist by day and a desirable Domme by night. But fear not, sexy alphas are still on the menu. I mean … this is me!
