Covet, (Splendor 1),  Janet Nissenson

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre: Romance, Erotica
Well, just for info this book was originally called Splendor (Inevitable 2), and is still available under that name. Now because of reader comments and requests Janet has re-written it to include Tessa’s backstory and her  marriage. Despite her being married though this is not a book that contains cheating.

I’ve got some issues reviewing this – its a long book, and usually I love those, but this dragged so, so much I wanted to flick ahead and find the actual story. It starts with Tessa being just 16, and the first half of the book mostly covers her teen years and marriage. We don’t even meet Ian until almost halfway through the book. Its classed as erotica too – and having looked at Splendor, and seen comments about the sex in reviews ( positive and negative – isn’t that always the way? What some of us love others hate!!) I was expecting something steamy here but...its just all dreams. Literally!! The sex is just in Tessa and Ian’s dreams and imagination. That doesn’t cut it for me, sorry. I need to feel the emotional connection otherwise the sex is just...sex, not romantic, not any sort of lovemaking.  
What I love about romance, whether erotica or otherwise, is the characters meeting, how they get together, build up to a romance, the push and pull, the slow burn that gradually sizzles until they finally take that plunge and become lovers, but here none of that happens. Its just Ian wanting Tessa but holding off, and Tessa wanting Ian but thinking he wouldn’t be interested in her. the sex is all imaginary.

Covet is a beautifully written story of heartbreak, tragedy, and hidden desires.

Tessa has had a hard life full of heartache and tragedy yet she is strong and determined with a beauty that lies deep within sometimes so deep it's only others that see it.

Ian, alpha male, heir to the gregson group

The story delves deep into tessa's past and keeps you engrossed allowing a understanding that made me feel the heartache along the way.
Will hidden attractions and strong principles impede a happily ever after for tessa and Ian?

An amazing read from me and can't wait for the next book.

Covet is the first in the long awaited prequel (& beyond trilogy) to the amazing book Splendor from the Inevitable series. I could hardly contain myself when I heard the author had decided to go back and reveal more of Ian and Tessa’s story.

Tessa Lockwood has endured more in her life than one person should ever face. Yet, she still has a sweetness of spirit unrivalled by her fellow man. Her story is not for the faint of heart and I warn you now, dear reader, that I shed a few tears as her backstory is revealed.

Working for the prestigious Gregson Group, a world renowned hotel chain, on their management support team; Tessa harbours a secret crush on her boss, the enigmatic Ian Gregson. Ian could give Tessa the world, and let’s face it, she deserves it and more. There is only one teeny, tiny problem, emm, that would be Tessa’s husband. Never fear!! All is not as it seems.

Ian Gregson was content with his bachelor lifestyle, more married to the job than anything else. That is until a blonde angel walked into his life. However, Ian is a very principled man. He has a strict no dating staff policy and, definitely, no seducing young married women. He resigns himself to coveting Tessa from afar.

Only fate has other ideas, what happens when one of the obstacles in Ian’s way is removed?

Ian and Tessa’s story is a classic Cinderella tale. Ian really is your quintessential leading man but has this naughty side just waiting to be unleashed. I love how unassuming Tessa is and she has no idea of her beauty which is more than skin deep. Plus, you have a few villains thrown in for good measure to boo and hiss at!

I am in awe of this author’s writing (can you tell, lol?) and the worlds/characters she creates. I literally need book two like NOW!!!

Covert is the stunningly beautiful prequel to Splendor. It is a story of strength, honor & courage, following the early life of Tessa Lockwood who will undoubtedly win your heart at every turn of the page.

Tessa's story is full of tragedy & despair & what she has to endure is emotionally staggering. She is so strong & courageous, facing life head on, fighting her insecurities & fears while trying her hardest to make it in a world that she so clearly doesn't feel she belongs in. Her beauty goes beyond the physical, as her inner beauty shines bright, setting her apart from those around her, with an innocence so heart warming yet wrenching at the same time. Her grace & quiet determination against adversity is inspiring & all you wish for is the most perfect HEA as it's the least she deserves.

Ian Gregson, heir, batchelor, alpha. He exudes power, commands respect & is a man of principles & damn will those principles push him to levels he has never experienced before. From the moment he meets Tessa he is bewitched. Her grace & beauty capture his heart like no other woman has managed so far, he wants her in every way possible, to worship her body as well as her soul. He can't stop thinking about her & the life he could give her, but knows that her heart & loyalties are held by another. Its the hardest thing he has ever had to accept.

This story really will capture you from the start. The character development is perfect, allowing you to understand the struggles of the heart & mind as the two try & hide their attraction to each other, as they struggle with their loyalties & principles.

A beautiful 5 stars from me & I cant wait to read the next chapter in Ian & Tessa's story.
