Skyler Tower (Tower, #1)My Review
Skyler Tower by Khelsey Jackson 

No matter how much beauty, money, and power Evangeline has, she is missing the one thing she needs the most, love. After five years, her driver and bodyguard, Axel, suddenly is looking pretty hot and she finds herself drawn to him. Enter Angelo, dark, Italian reporter on a mission and the sparks she felt with Axel pale in comparison to the nuclear explosion Evangeline feels. Two dominant lovers, sharing control, but Angelo hides some dark secrets and its Axel’s job, both professionally and personally to discover what it is. Is Axel doing this out of jealousy or duty?

When a stalker threatens Evangeline, and the timing coincides too closely with Angelo’s appearance, Axel fears he is part of the plan to hurt Evangeline’s once-shattered heart. Will this turn into a painful triangle or will the stalker eliminate the ice queen of industry?

Skyler Tower by Kelsey Jackson is built in the high dollar world of successful corporate power, where everyone knows they are attractive, they are powerful and they get what they want. Evangeline has been hurt in the past, so she has been driven to never need anyone else, ever. She revels in her power, but there is a side to her that is warm and caring. Angelo is the Italian Stallion, almost a little too slick, but he, too has a painful past. My favorite character, who I do wish we saw more of, was Axel, all American in looks, a former trained soldier, devoted and loyal to his boss, all while hiding his feelings for her, only to miss his chance.

Ms. Jackson has created an intense tale with a touch of danger and a dollop of mystery. She has no problem steaming up the plot with enough sexual tension to take the wrinkles out of a cotton shirt. If you want a quick read that doesn’t dig too far below the surface of its characters, has lots of instant heat and beautiful people who dwell on the power that gives them, come on up to the top floor of Skyler Tower!
