Instigation (Clandestine Affairs, #1) ~ Tessa Teevan

Three years after her life changed forever, Gabriella Latham finally has it all. Killer job [if working for her boyfriend counts]. Killer closet [even if she doesn't technically own any of it]. Killer boyfriend [who refuses to let her leave him, even when she tries]. Unfortunately for her, the last part isn't hyperbole. She just doesn't know it yet.

Adrian Morningstar was a dream come true. No one had ever loved her more, and for the first time, in longer than she could remember, she was no longer alone. He was the Prince Charming to her Cinderella, until suddenly he became the Beast with whom she could not escape.

Until him.

When Rafe Matthews is hired to oversee the guest home construction of one of the most powerful businessmen in the country, he finally has his in. Nothing will get in the way of what he sets out to do. 

Until her.

Watching from the shadows, he's drawn to the beautiful, isolated woman of the house. His curiosity is piqued and he has to have her. She may be taken by the boss, but that's not enough to stop him. Or her.

Nothing is quite as it seems, and this is only the beginning. 

Passions ignite. Tempers flare. Secrets kill. 

WOW so this one came totally out of left field!!
Plot, Style of writing and Vibe..
Definitely unexpected... I caught myself trying to continue scrolling to the next page when I realized I was left hanging.

The beginning was a whirlwind we get introduced to Gabriella we can see she's somewhat of a recluse and we find out it's due to events that quickly are unraveled as the story progresses.
 We are just as quickly introduced to Adrian and get the "He 's up to something!" feeling...
We get snippets of how they met and crucial signs that were missed through their relationship!
Then BAM!!! 
We are flung into the present and meet Rafe!!!
 Yummy in the how many licks will it take to get to the - well you get where I'm going with that... Only Issue I had was the Insta~"TRUST
The story line does touch on a Topic that may be a trigger to some regarding domestic violence (remember it doesn't always have to be physical mental abuse is ABUSE.)

So many questions, so much left to the imagination 
When we finally thought we got a grasp of who might be the villain we get blindsided 
and ultimately are still left wondering!!
That ending Yeesh!!
