In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.
For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.
Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations . . . and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

First of all I have to say that I love this this series and I really loved this book. Want It is intense, suspenseful, and the hunger between Erin and Zander is downright combustible.
Erin’s life has never been as simple as everyone thought. Not even her childhood sweetheart knew the real her, the reason she was so uptight about certain things, and in the end it was her worry and concern that triggered the events that led them to explosively part ways. But four years later she’s in trouble, he’s back in town, and she needs his help. Although what he offers is way more than she ever bargained for.
Zander thought he had his future all planned out, but one night changed all that, and he moved forward without ever looking back. But now he’s forced to look into the eyes of the girl he once thought he loved and damn if it doesn’t feel like old times. Of course, all he wants is to get her out of his system once and for all.
It’s funny how a little thing like a ransom can bring two people closer than either of them thought imaginable. Their desires will ignite, their passions flame, and in the end it’ll be up to them if they get burned or embrace the fire.
My Favorite Fun Moment: The pool… It’s amazing how you can be so into someone that nothing else around you matters.

“I’m serious, Dani,” Erin snapped. “I made the call that got Zander arrested. You can’t get into West Point if you’ve been arrested, or if you can, Zander’s father either didn’t have that kind of pull or refused to exercise it. And Zander knew that immediately, the night this all happened. I didn’t understand at first, and by the time I did, it was all over.” Erin drew in a shuddering breath. “So Zander ended up enlisting the very next day. I think Gran Ginny told me that, actually, days later. God knows I never went out to the cape again after that night.”
“And you never spoke to him again,” Dani said.
“Not really,” Erin muttered. There had been one time, yes. And hadn’t that been an epic fail.
But Dani wasn’t done yet. “So that was it for you guys. Four years in the military, and neither one of you unbent enough to admit that you were wrong and ask for forgiveness?”
Erin scowled at her. “Since when do you ask for forgiveness?”
“I don’t.” Dani shrugged. “But I’m not you. Making things right is important to you, and if your Zander’s as Boy-Scouty as he sounds, it’s important to him, too. But not so important, apparently, for either of you, that you’d actually give up anything for it.”
Erin’s frown deepened. “Aren’t you supposed to be helping here?”
“Nope.” Dani grinned at her. “But I’m about to. He’s coming over tonight, isn’t he? You want me to find somewhere else to sleep?”
“What? No.” Erin’s eyes widened. “Dani, it’s not like that. It’s food and conversation, nothing more. I’m not even expecting him until six or whatever. I figured I’d just paint upstairs until dinner is done, then come down and get everything together. But we’re just going to talk, seriously. I’m not turning the entire brownstone into some sort of love nest.”
“Why not?” Dani asked. “He’s home, what, for just a couple weeks? Why not make things right while he’s still in town?”
“Because he hates me, maybe? That seems like a pretty good reason.”
