Review & Giveaway: Falloir (Passion Noire #2) by J. D. Chase

Title: Falloir
Series: Passion Noire #2
Author: J. D. Chase
Publication Date: April 23rd, 2015 

La Veuve Noire’s little boxes keep rattling as she struggles to juggle the challenges that life seems intent on throwing at her. It doesn’t help that the most important thing in the world to her, The Kid, is inextricably linked to the physical representation of her nemesis.

A new little box, constructed from guilt and grief, leads her to take drastic action. Tired of looking over her shoulder, Veuve longs to smash open those little boxes and face up to the demons inside, once and for all.

Ex-Commando, Jax ‘Jones’ is the embodiment of everything she strives to avoid. Frustratingly, the more determined she is to conquer her past, the more she finds herself relying on him.

But what if the past is inexplicably linked with the present? Just who will face the consequences of provoking demons from the past?

About the Author:

UK based, bestselling Indie author of contemporary romance … otherwise known as elegantly filthy erotica. Shoeaholic. Introvert. Prude. Teetotaler. Compulsive Liar!!

UK bestselling author of the Rouge Passion and Orion the Hunter series. Not your average romance novelist ... but then, who wants to be average?

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 sewing 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!

If you've read my review of the first book in the Passion Noire series, you know that I loved that book and I got really invested in the characters stories. Well, this second book didn't disappoint at all. Starting exactly where the first one finished, Falloir is even better than Vouloir. At least in my opinion. I loved getting sucked even deeper in La Veuve Noire's life and the people she cares about. This second book also had some more suspense which made it that much better for me.

One of my favorite parts of this book was getting more insight into the Kid and his past. I have to say that I had tears in my eyes for quite a big part of the book written from his POV. I loved seeing how little by little he opens more and more to the rest of the world. He fights to get past the hell he lived in as a teenager and at the same time he tries to get his family together again. The surprises that J.D. Chase threw in in that aspect and also with respect to the other characters were so unexpected that definitely kept me glued to the book and kept me invested in their stories.

It was quite interesting to read how things between La Veuve Noire and Jones develop. Both of them continue to be amazing and interesting characters. The chemistry between them is still off the charts and things between them just get more and more complicated. Even though they are both dominant, they have an undeniable connection that definitely rises the question how things will be solved between them. Me personally, I am rooting for them to find a way to be together. There is just something in Jones that I think will help Veuve to finally heal. He is this dominant, strong alpha male but he has this tender and softer side that makes him  simply irresistible. 

So yes, in a few words, this series is a must read. It is intriguing and interesting. The characters are amazing and at least in my case, I felt like they were real people, like they were my friends. And considering how this second part finished, I can't wait for the third book to be out. I do have some ideas what will probably happen but considering how many times I was surprised so far, I am probably wrong. So if you are looking for not your typical read, full with surprises and unexpected turns, with incredibly well developed and interesting characters, and of course superb writing, then you should read the Passion Noire series. I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed :)
