Review – Bait by Jade West


Review graphic

Bait is a must read!

Dark and twisted. There was no putting this down once I started. Jade has written some of the dirtiest, kinkiest books I have ever read. But with this story, she has truly shown some incredible talent. Bait had me turned around, flabbergasted and craving more with each turn of the page. Leo and Abigail’s tale is not one for the faint of heart. This book will either draw you in completely or have you running as far away as possible. I chose to fall in with my mind and heart wide open, both feet totally jumping in for one of the best reads of the year.

Leo and Abigail both have a past filled with horrible losses. Both have an empty place in their hearts that can only seem to be filled by fulfilling their darkest needs. One desires to be prey. The other to be the predator. Abigail ran from the pain of her past but has always dreamed that she is being chased by the dark monster, one who uses her for his own dark desires once she is caught. Abigail believes that until she has the wish fulfilled she can’t move forward and sets a plan in motion to make her nightmare a reality. Leo, the Phoenix, is a single father with a child that refuses to speak after the loss of his mother, a brother who is a thorn in his side and a demon inside him. He is the dark monster. A past filled with angry unanswered questions has made him so. A chance meeting online with Abigail will change the course of his life in ways that he never dreamed.

Leo is big, tatted… just a beautiful man wanting to take care of his son, his sister and his business. He’s never been able to let go of the past, and he has the scars on the outside to prove it. Abigail is fragile and torn a part after her image of love and family was scattered into a million pieces. Her heart and mind have been damaged. I saw Abigail trying to get through the day, faking her way through her life until she could finally feel something. The emotions between these two are so real, so heartbreakingly close to the surface. Their story, their coming together so enthralled and captured me.

This is a fantasy unlike any that I have read in a very long time. It was brilliantly written, breathtaking and exciting. There was no staying away from this story. I had to see it through to the end. This was Jade West at her best. I was blindsided by how much I enjoyed this suspenseful, heart pounding tale of two people and their desire to find peace in the chaos, fulfillment in the emptiness of their pain and resolution so that they could move forward together. An amazingly powerful read! Absolutely stunning!

Six Dark Love Stars!




A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me.
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.

Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.

Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.
She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness.

She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.
