Jasmine ~ Crystal Brewton

You can find Crystal Brewton here and you can purchase Jasmine here.


Jasmine Ambrose was a top magazine model - beautiful and seductive - until her jealous husband took his hands to her, carving her into a creature that he swore no one would ever want or love. Just before killing her, Ezra is apprehended by the police and sentenced to a maximum security prison. Yet, there is a copycat on the loose, killing off other models from the magazine firm in the same method that Ezra had used on Jasmine. As fear of the copycat killer keeps the NYC police department on the run, Assistant District Attorney Paul Chevalier must do everything in his power to keep Jasmine safe and alive - all while battling his own inner demons and facing the fact that he is falling in love with the scarred model. "Jasmine" is a riveting romantic mystery that will keep readers on the edge of their seat, biting their nails and begging for more.

Always the Mistress of Tough Topics, Crystal Brewton is again at it in Jasmine, a heart-wrenching story of a woman who has everything stripped from her… by the hands of her abusive husband.  In an amazing show of strength, Jasmine never once gives up.  She even finds a way to trust again and let a man into her life.  Her strength of spirit coupled with the love and support of her friends guides her to seek the closure and security she needs to get on with her life.

Ms. Brewton has a way with difficult subjects, taking them in all their horrible, offensive glory, embracing them and putting them on paper for all to see.  While many authors shy away from subjects such as sexual abuse and domestic violence, she takes them within and makes them into something more.  Something that usually has a happier ending.

If you are looking for a meaty story with a strong, if a bit damaged, heroine, then look no farther.  Any of Ms. Brewton’s many stories will fill this bill, but Jasmine is a special story, a guilty pleasure, if you will.  Not only do you get your admirable heroine, your handsome yet sensitive hero, and a few laughs along the way, you get a bonus with this one: complete satisfaction.

Probably one of the author’s very best works to date, Jasmine is sure to please, outrage, and completely entrance.
