“Love is giving someone the power to destroy you, but trusting them not to.”

How do you live with yourself when you are the reason you lost the one thing that meant the most to you.

Timing is everything and for Reed, he can never seem to catch a break. When Reed returns to Boston to redeem himself he finds that Elle has already moved on, building a new life, a new beginning. He needs her to know that he meant every word before he left, that he never meant to leave her. Will he ever get that chance to tell her?

How do you love again when the one person who made you feel like you were his whole world left you with a broken heart? Hoping that life and new friends could keep her memories and feelings for Reed at bay, Elle chases life and all that it has to offer until she is confronted with heartbreak again.

Is time and space enough to get past losing your once in a lifetime or will Elle be always Wanting Reed?

Jamie says

"You are the air that I breathe.  Your voice is all I hear.
You're all I need.
Look ahead. Leave the past behind.
Put our lives on hold and press rewind."

Wanting Reed is the second book in the series, you have to read Breaking Elle first this isn't a standalone.  The book is told in Elle and Reed's POV's.  I would give this book 4-5 stars, it was a great ending to Elle and Reeds love story.  In book 1 you find how much chemistry the two have with each other but Elle has a boyfriend that she has been with for 2 years, but what happens when that relationship crumbles to pieces and Reed is there to help pick up the pieces.  There relationship is happening quickly and they couldn't be happier, but yes fate always has its way of tearing poor Elle's heart to pieces once again when Reed's past comes back to destroy what they have built.  The first book ends with a cliffy and you will want to pick upWanting Reed as soon as you put down Breaking Elle.  Wanting Reed picks up right after the tragic ending of Elle and Reeds relationship being destroyed, can they work through there wrongs and truly be happy?  Or has Elle moved on with her best friend Tyler?  Can Reed fix his past and present demons so that Elle can see that she does want him and not Tyler?  
I don't want to give away to much of this story but you have to know there is some seriously hot sexy scenes and so much desperation to know what is going to happen between the main characters.  I hope Antoinette decides to write more about some of these side characters because I would like to know what happens with there lives as well.  Thanks for a great story and I look forward to more from this author.

Here is some excerpts from the book enjoy!

Reed-Still, I can't stay in Texas and let go of her and all the memories I shared with her in the short time we were together go without and explanation.  There weren't many of them, but it's quality over quantity.  She's been running circles in my brain.  I can't shake her smell, the feel of her hair, the warmth of her body, or the taste of her lips.  She's all I've been thinking about and all that I've been missing.  My heart is trapped in my ribcage, and she's the only one who can set it free.  She trusted me not to hurt or destroy her.  I never meant to, but I did.  
The time away has made it even more unbelievably powerful.  She's destroying me.  This is not fucking just falling in love; this fucking crashing into it.  Complete destruction.

Elle- Turning, I stare out the window and watch the vibrant leaves flutter around me.  Before Reed, I never used to think that way.  I was always so protective of my emotions, but he encouraged me to and I hate him for it now.  Reed made me believe that I could lead with my heart.  That's what pains me the most.  If I didn't listen to him, let go, I wouldn't be here.

Reed and Elle- 
"You're poison to me.  My poison..."  she murmurs painfully.
"Am I? is that what you believe? Is that what you feel?  Is that what you see when you look in my eyes? Poison?" I whisper against her lips.
She sighs deeply and closes her eyes for several seconds.  During that time, I see the beauty in her pain, how much she wants to love and to trust, but she is too afraid to try again.

"I'm going to use you, worship you and love you.  Please, let me make you mine," he whispers into my ear. "You trust me, baby?"
"I trust you."  For some reason with everything we've been through, trusting him comes so naturally.

"I've always know that, You are my moon," she whispers, placing her delicate hands onto my face.  Her skin is as soft as silk and ignites the fire in my soul.  
"You are my sun, baby.  You are my wish, my fantasy come true.  I'll be your hope and everything you need."  I rasp, gazing into her engaging eyes.

When Elle Bennett meets Reed Austin she can't deny the attraction. She discovers that certain people come into your life who make you question everything that you've ever believed about love and life. Will she risk everything for something exciting and dangerous or will she choose what is familiar and secure? 

Reed Austin isn't looking for love when he moves to Boston. The distance was supposed to help him escape the trouble he left behind. Once he meets, Elle, everything changes. Reed can't figure out why he's drawn to Elle, but one thing is certain - he needs her.

Passion. Betrayal. Solace. Confusion. Desperation. 
Love and life are not simple and emotions and relationships are tested. 

Will attraction be enough or will their secrets and past keep them apart?

You can catch Antoinette on the beach soaking in the rays, but when the rumble of the thunderstorm rolls in, she’s curled up with a book or tapping away on her keyboard.
