She doesn’t play it safe...
Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge. But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her. Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.
Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard. She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.
He doesn’t play at all...
Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets. And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk... as long as he can claim Sophie.
Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others... Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch.

Call me a masochist but I seem to keep coming back to Cynthia Eden’s Dark Obsession series even when the first book failed to convince me of the chemistry between the H/h. In Want Me, I found more of the same – a desirous hero who hankers after a woman who is scared, running and obstinate. Yet their passion feels…empty, like it was built only on lust and a tenuous connection because of abusive childhood histories, which made both Lex’s insistent proclamation of love (and Sophie’s reciprocal declaration at the end) not entirely believable.
