LEAD ME ON - Victoria Dahl
Victoria Dahl continues to amaze me and I absolutely loved Lead Me On. The author’s sense of humor certainly comes out in this book and I had to sit back and think what it would have been to have been raised like Jane Morgan had been and also the question first and foremost was you absolutely can’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Jane Morgan had been raised in a most unusual way. Her mother had a thing for men in prison, in fact Jane’s father had been an inmate. She visited along with her mother, many of her mom’s prison boyfriends, in fact, her step father had served time, was definitely a biker with a ton of tatoes and she absolutely adored him. In fact, it wa this very man who finally had enough of watching her trying to destroy herself and put her straight. He actually saved her life.
William Chase reminded Jane of her father and men from her past. He didn’t fit the image of someone she wanted to see however he intrigued her and she was physically attracted to him. He frequented her office as he owned his own business, he had a demolition business and blasted away rock, etc. to make way for building sites. He drove a dusty, rusted truck, also had tattoos and didn’t dress appropriately for Jane’s like yet in the end, passion for him over road her common sense and she ended up sleeping with him and was very confused by all of her emotions.
Jane left her family and started over by changing everything and hiding from her past. She was a buttoned up office manager and wanted to marry a respectable person. However, when her brother was jailed and accused of some things he didn’t do, Jane had to help her parents and brother and Chase as well as her father also assisted in proving her brother not guilty. However, her cover was blown and I wondered if she would ever recover and what it would take for her to see the love available to her with this amazing man who adored her.
Lead me On, was a most amazing read……I laughed and cried at the same time and I can’t wait to read the other books in this series. I must say, I decided to read Victoria Dahl romance!
Raw, animal magnetism…
…is a big red flag to prim and proper office manager Jane Morgan. After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look and her taste for bad boys.

She gives herself one explosive, fantasy-filled night with Chase. The next day it's back to plain Jane and safe men.
But when her beloved brother becomes a murder suspect, it's Chase who comes to her rescue. And Jane discovers that a man who's been around the block knows a thing or two about uncovering the truth….
