Blog Tour: Enchanted & Desired by Eva Simone


Jess Foster is your typical party girl…or so it seems….

She’s got it all, money, looks, brains and sex appeal to rival any siren. Living in Manhattan with her best friend Lily, Jess enjoys the high life, toying with men and casting them aside, but behind the party girl facade is a broken, scared young woman who feels like she can’t confide in anyone. She hides it well until she spends the night with a sexy Italian player.
Simon Mantovani doesn’t do relationships.
He’s witnessed one woman he loves being broken beyond repair. He couldn’t protect her…and he will never let that happen again. He keeps his conquests to one night only, making sure to remove any emotional connection from the equation. That is until he’s introduced to a vixen that captures his attention. Convincing himself it’s a purely physical reaction, he embarks on a quest to get her out of his system…not so easy when you recognize the pain of a broken soul behind the most beautiful eyes you’ve ever seen.
Have Jess and Simon met their match in each other? Will they be able to forge something real together, or will their primal, undeniable attraction to each other be the very thing that rips them apart? Jess is a master of self-sabotage. Confronted with a decision that could change everything, will she put her trust in the man she so desperately wants?
A thrilling tale of caustic love between two people that swore never to go down this path. Jess and Simon will take you on a roller coaster ride as they struggle to find their place in each others lives.

Sometimes love just isn’t enough…


I fell so madly in love with Brandon and Lily in

I'm telling you I was in a book hangover for a long time. Brandon was the perfect hero. Loyal and protective and Lily was sweet and brave. 
I was overjoyed when I started chatting with the sweet author Eva Simone and was offered the honor to review the sequel. Jess was a character I was intrigued by in the previous installment. I knew that she had some issues but I wasn't aware of the depth and severity of them. Jess has a history that has damaged her present and her future. She has let these issues from her past control her in a way that she doesn't let men in and she doesn't do relationships. But this has always been easy for her because none of her "hook ups" have ever made her really feel on an emotional level. Until Simon. At first it's all about the lust 
They way they make each other feel on a physical level. Amazing chemistry and out of the world orgasms. Both agree that this is the best sex of their lives. 
 Jess can't fight the attraction so she does the one thing she can do. She runs. She pushes Simon away and does in a way that makes him believe there isn't any point in going after her. 
This book took me on a ride of of mass emotional turmoil
I avoid books with certain triggers. I didn't ask questions before going into this book and that is my fault. I just want to say that the writing was stellar and it was written passionately and with a depth of emotion that at times took my breath away. I simply had major issues on a personal level with the heroines choices. I found that Simon was near perfect. His only problems were brought about  in direct reflection of Jess's stubbornness and actions that hurt him so badly.
 She has never put up a fight for me, and that’s part of the problem.
 If Jess had have opened her eyes to what was in front of her face the pain these two suffered would have been minimal. She simply made me so mad!!
I did see them grow slowly. Simon more than Jess and I adored the ending so much. Not all love stories can be fairy tales. Some are a journey that has a broken and  tattered road that leads two souls together and while they are fighting to build a bridge..they sometimes stumble. I know that this author wanted to convey a story of healing and trust and I think she'll please a whole lot of readers with the outcome.
I am glad I pushed forth to their HEA and adore Eva Simone for pushing my boundaries and helping me show a little mercy to some characters normally I'd not have been able to do so. 


I am a stay at home mother of two, wife to a wonderful hubby, and certified book addict. I studied English at university, gaining an honours degree in literature and linguistics.
After straying so far from my education I was sucked back in to the world of reading by the illustrious FSOG. Two years later, and at least 200+ books later, with a story on the back burner I decided it was time to put my education to good use and write my first novel.

Thanks Eva
