5/5 Review: Madame X by Jasinda Wilder


 
My name is Madame X.I’m the best at what I do...

Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X wields culture and wit like a knife. But behind her sophisticated facade X is a woman adrift, trapped between a dangerous past she can’t remember and the protection of a seductive man who claims her body—and her soul.

Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for the safety of her tower penthouse, she also yearns to escape. But X has never known anything or anyone else—until he came along…

**********
Jasinda Wilder has done it again! Madame X is a wonderfully spun tale of a woman who teaches young wealthy men to be confident instead of arrogant and spoiled. She woke up 6 years ago, in a hospital beaten and broken after being attacked, she isn't alone and doesn't remember her name. Caleb is by her side and takes her home, helps her heal, and gives her a job. He seems great on the surface but treats X like she is property to be available when he deems it and then disappears. X doesn't have any outside communication and isn't allowed anything but a business relationship with her clients. If she crosses the line - Caleb makes her regret it. Needless to say Caleb is a bastard of epic proportions.

I must admit I wanted to shake X more then once because of the power she allowed Caleb and for some of the bad decisions she makes. The mystery is what and why is Caleb holding her the way he does. As, X's starts to grow and see the relationship for what it is, she meets a man named Logan who wants to treat her with love, and compassion. Cherish her for the gift she is. It was wonderful seeing how their connection started and moved so quickly in intensity.

Ms. Wilder's characters are hot, well-developed and strong. The story line progresses rapidly and will keep you involved and turning pages. I understand that it is part of a trilogy, but it doesn't leave you hanging just looking forward to seeing what the next book will unviel about the lovely Madame. If you are in the market for a darkish, erotic book, I would highly recommend this one.
