REVIEW: Stern Desire by Leah Shay

by Leah Shay

Her love can heal him; his love can set her free. The moment Kyra walked into billionaire Jared Stern’s hospital room and introduced herself as his nurse he knew that this paragon of loveliness was what he needed to mend his damaged soul. Jared knew he had to have her. They shared an instant mutual attraction. Drawn together by some irresistible force they stirred emotions in each other that neither had felt in years. But, Jared’s dark inescapable secrets plagued him, and they were a constant reminder why he was not right for her. Kyra’s trust in men had been severely destroyed and for years she felt nothing but mistrust and anger towards them. Jared’s mysterious nature reminded Kyra why she had built a fortress around her heart protecting herself from men like him. Reluctantly, Kyra gave way to Jared’s relentless pursuits. Will she jeopardized her career knowing that anything other than a nurse-patient relationship could be risky and lead to her losing her job or even her license? Will Jared’s secrets smother their hot steamy love affair, or will he do the unthinkable to trap Kyra into the relationship? One thing about secrets they rarely stay in the dark.

REVIEW: I'd like to thank Promotional Book Tours and the author for allowing me a chance to read the book in exchange for an honest review.
The book itself was a relatively easy read. The story line went quickly, I kind of liked the characters. Jared was a controlling bratty billionaire. Kyra went against all of her ingrained truths about being a nurse when she fell in love with him, which makes me think she has absolutely no self-control. Jared loves this because he can mold her like putty. It sounds bad, but the author wrote it thoroughly enough for me to come up with those conclusions. As deep and altering as their love may have been for either of them in the book, I didn't feel it. That's where the writing fell flat. 
This was a very sexual book. Lots of sex scenes, some of them pretty hot, but it all went ice-cold whenever I read the words "v-jay" or "magic stick". Sorry, those terms do nothing for me. Maybe they do something for other people, but not this girl.
I wish I could have liked this book more.
