Title: Lucas
Series: The Hunter Brothers #1
Author: L.J. Dee

Book One of The Hunter Brothers: Lucas 

‘Lucas flashed into my life like a glorious thunderbolt, electrifying my senses with those cobalt blue eyes; then just like lightning he was gone.’ 

Jessica Evangelista has had it tough. Pregnant at sixteen, she’s fought hard to protect the little boy she loves. Life never dealt her a break, until now. But when her thunderbolt lands as a permanent fixture, seriously sinful and impossible to ignore, he threatens every aspect of the life she’s strived so hard to build. When you’re fighting for a chance, there aren’t many rules. Jess only has two; 

She will never sleep with her boss. 

She will never risk it all. 

Lucas Hunter is a man used to getting what he wants. A master of the boardroom and the bedroom, he’s respected, magnetic and powerful, and that’s the way he likes it. Dark and dominant, serious and brooding, he lives for control. But when a beautiful waitress crashes into his life, he knows he needs to win her. What he doesn’t need is a woman who blindsides him at every turn, forcing his ordered world into absolute chaos.

He doesn’t pick up waitresses and he doesn’t f**k employees. 

Relationships come with a cast iron contract. 

Some rules were made to be broken. Some feelings are just too powerful to ignore. 
Due to explicit language and strong sexual content, including BDSM, the series is recommended for readers over 18. 

The story of each Hunter brother is a full length erotic romance novel, designed to be read in order. 

This book begins when Jess ends up bumping into a really gorgeous guy when she's filling in for her sister at a waitressing job. Her humiliation gets worse when she discovers he's actually her new boss at her other job. She can't lose this job, and he seems to not want her there. But something is keeping her from being fired, and she's unsure what. 

These two have major chemistry, and when things start to get to hot, neither one are sure who is going to get burned. Especially when Jess has a few secrets of her own, and Lucas may have one too. 

This book started out very interesting. I loved the buisness relationship, and adding the child into the mix, because that never happens in books. But then the book just went a little crazy in my opinion. It was like the heroine was really interesting, and I respected her then she just sort of went crazy around the middle of the book. That was so unexpected that I started to lose interest in it. Then it just didn't get much better after that. 

So, my overall view on this one is that I liked it. I liked the story for the most part, and I liked the hero, and the child. But I was not really a fan of the heroine after she started going crazy then stopped all of a sudden. I'm not really sure I want to read more in the series either, but the next book seemed intriguing.
