Again, Xavier has created a cast of characters that draw you into the story quickly! I loved Jovi. She’s the good girl who has done everything right and responsible in her life and wants to do something that involves feeling rather than thinking, and she finds that in Merrick. It’s all feeling and no rational thought. Hey, who could blame her? I wouldn’t be thinking rationally with Merrick around. Who doesn’t remember being young and trying to gain some independence from your parents? Oh Lordy, Merrick!!!! He’s a bad boy with a brain, a body to drive a woman wild, and a heart of gold? Who couldn’t resist that deadly combination? I mean, seriously, the guy loves Van Gogh and reading! What’s not hot about that? The sexual tension between these two is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!! I swear Xavier has cornered the market on sex scenes…just the right mix of naughty and sweet!
Again, Xavier, has outdone herself! She writes several different series, and all are different…sexy military men, a hotter than he$$ fighter, a retelling of Peter Pan, a single teenage dad, and now Merrick. In this one, she even manages to incorporate shades of Romeo and Juliet. And, I love every single one of her series and characters. And, she uses cliffhangers in ways draw you back for the next book. Instead of making me mad or frustrated, she just makes me more excited for the next book! I just want to live inside of her head for just a little while…what a trip that would be. Again, Xavier, you have made me fall in love with a different man! I can’t wait to see how this series develops, not just with Merrick and Jovi, but some of the other characters as well. You should pat yourself on the back again…another smash hit for me!!!!
Merrick is a HOT bad boy who has followed his brothers into the family business of street racing, working on cars and staying on the wrong side of the law. But he has dreams of something more in life. He hasn’t quite figured out his path to something more but loves creating art in the world around him.
Jovi is the only child of the Police Commissioner. She has always felt like a prisoner due to her father’s overprotectiveness with only one friend that he hasn’t succeeded in scaring off. She has been stuck at home, attending the local community college but dreams of something more. She intends to start truly living her life when she goes away to college in just a few months.
But a chance meeting has these two, from opposite sides of the law, feeling an attraction that neither can ignore. This unlikely pair bond over their mutual love for Vincent Van Gogh and meeting the one person who truly sees them and not where they’re from.
“I was looking for something to get out of bed for in the morning. Something to be the reds and oranges that fill my life…I was looking for you.”
But can a criminal and the Police Commissioner’s daughter really last?
I am really loving this new series!! As warned, this does end on a cliffhanger that has left me anxious for more. As opposite as Jovi and Merrick are, they are great together and I love them both. And the secondary characters in this book are fantastic as well and I can’t wait for more of them. If you loved the writing style of the Senses series, you will love this one. This is definitely another “Classic” from Xavier Neal!!
This book continues the love story of Merrick and Jovi. While the passion and sweetness of their relationship is still there, Merrick and Jovi are starting to feel the pressure of outside forces trying to create distance between them. But Merrick isn’t willing to give up the woman who has finally made him want more for his future besides the family business. And even though Jovi has been raised by an overprotective Police Commissioner, she is willing to risk his wrath to protect Merrick and those he loves.
But decisions will be made that may change everything that Merrick and Jovi have envisioned for their future. Will their love be strong enough to withstand the challenges they face?
I absolutely love this series!! Not only are Merrick and Jovi fantastic but we get more of the secondary characters as well. I love Merrick’s brothers and getting to know them better makes me excited for their stories as well. This book has so many feels that I couldn’t help but be swept up in the story and loved every minute of it. Warning: this book does end on a cliffhanger that is a killer but luckily the wait won’t be long for the next book in this series!
“Everything about her about us, is permanently painted there. No matter what happens, it’s artwork no one can demolish and there’s a comfort in that like no other.” ~Merrick~
Vintage picks up right where Classic left off with our hearts in our throats about Merrick and Jovi’s future. Would Merrick survive to even have a life with Jovi? Xavier Neal puts our minds to rest with that fairly quickly, but the danger is by no means over! As the book continues, the relationship between the two lovers gets more serious. Merrick is trying to find a way out of his criminal life to have a life not being a “McCoy” but just being himself. He just wants to live a normal life with Jovi. But, that may be prove harder than he ever expected and come with some very painful consequences. Each of their loyalties to their families is also tested. But, when you are in love with the Police Commissioner’s daughter, and you are the man he is after, it isn’t going to be an easy relationship. But, what I really like about this series and what makes it stand out in the romance genre, is there really is no angst between Jovi and Merrick. They are together, they are loyal to each other, and love each other…the angst is with their families, just like in Romeo and Juliet. Neal has done a fantastic job again of making this a somewhat modernized version of the classic love story. There is mystery and action, like in Classic, especially where The Devil is concerned. I want to know who he is afraid of!
Vintage was another winner for me! But, be forewarned, there is a shocking cliffhanger that I didn’t see coming. However, I’m not mad at Xavier at all. I am one of those weirdos that likes a good cliffhanger. It makes me remember the story and the characters, and honestly, it leaves me anxious for the next book! If you love a forbidden romance, that’s sweet and a little naughty, with lots of action and thrills, then hop on in and take a ride with Merrick and Jovi…it’s one heck of a ride.

Follow Cassie on her emotional journey along with all the twists and turns of fate and destiny!
I turn and see HIM, I realise he is the one watching me. I don’t know why I don’t feel creeped out, but I don’t. I put a towel around me and find myself walking towards him. I need to know who he is.
The closer I get to him the more of him I can see. He is in his swim shorts and no top. His body is so beautiful. All I can do is look into his eyes, they are the most beautiful blue colour. They are turquoise and are like pools that are drawing me in.
“Hi” I say, trying not to blush “I’m …”
“Cassie” he says. “I know who you are, I was hoping to bump into you tonight. I’m Jordan,” he says with the biggest and brightest grin I’ve ever seen.
“Hi Jordan. Why were you hoping to bump into me?” I stupidly say to him. He’s making me lose control of myself. I feel really nervous and look down at the floor.
“Erm I wanted to get to know you. I feel like I’m drawn to you for some reason. I know that sounds stupid, but everywhere I look I can only see you.” He puts his finger under my chin and makes me look into his eyes. “Even when I have my eyes closed, all I can see is you. Sorry if that sounds a bit stalkerish.” He laughs, but I can see that he’s embarrassed about showing me his feelings.
I laugh with him because I really don’t know what to say. I have to try and say something though because he is looking at me with those mesmerising eyes. “Yeah it does sound a bit stalkerish,” I laugh. “But I’m flattered and yes, I have seen you around at school and I did wonder who you were too. So we are both a bit stalkerish.” We both start laughing.
“I’m going to go and dry off and get some more clothes on. Then maybe we can grab a drink,” I say really quickly so Jordan doesn’t see I’m waffling on a bit. He is making me nervous but I don’t want to stop talking to him. I turn and walk back into the house, towards the stairs to go upstairs to the bedroom to find my dress. I can feel him following me and I smile to myself. I am a little bit nervous though that I am in the house with him and my friends are outside, but he makes me feel safe.
“That’s sounds great, although I don’t mind if you don’t put anymore clothes on” he says grinning at me. He is following closely behind me, I was right.
“No, seriously I would feel better if I had more clothes on.” I laugh as I’m heading up the stairs.
A recovering alcoholic, the key to Evelyn’s continuing sobriety is to remain focused and controlled. She finally has her life on track with a new job at a law firm, but her world is shaken when she meets the firm’s gorgeous, charming, dominant CEO.
Wade’s perfect world is one of discipline and obedience. When he encounters his firm’s new employee, he begins a cat-and-mouse game in his pursuit of the feisty and independent Evelyn, determined to break through her cold demeanor and give her the discipline he’s sure she craves.
Both of Evelyn’s parents were addicts, incapable of giving her the slightest bit of affection, and she’s not equipped to deal with the rush of powerful emotions her relationship with Mr. Parks unleashes. So she turns to the only solace she knows—numbing her feelings with alcohol.
Just as Evelyn’s heart begins to thaw, Mr. Parks is reminded of his own troubled upbringing and he pulls away, leaving her feeling abandoned.
