Madame X, Book One
Madame X invites you to test the limits of desire in this provocative new
novel from New York Times bestselling author Jasinda Wilder.
My name is Madame X.
I’m the best at what I do…
Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X wields culture and wit like a knife. But behind her sophisticated facade X is a woman adrift, trapped between a dangerous past she can’t remember and the protection of a seductive man who claims her body—and her soul.
Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for the safety of her tower penthouse, she also yearns to escape. But X has never known anything or anyone else—until he came along…
MADAME X is unlike any book I’ve ever read before. Written in a point of view that I have yet to come across, the journey and the way of telling it will take you on a unique journey. The writing is striking, and Madame X is a captivating character.
I can’t give any peak into the story as it was slowly revealed by reading it. Being in X’s head, you only know what she knows. You’re left with only the resources she has. And what she has isn’t much as she only knows what she’s experienced in the last 6 years since waking up from a coma. She’s now the woman in high demand for teaching the young elite how to be controlled and professional, how to be the men they need to be. Her controlled, exacting manner is schooled and professional. She’s confined and compliant, but defiant and demanding. She’s weak to him, but strong in her femininity.
Madame X is cultured, controlled, but something in her is reaching, striving for more. She wants answers, she wants more. The more she questions, the more of a black hole she opens. It rips wide open and within it the answers are both fleeting and enlightening. She gets one step forward, but is forced two steps backward. When he enters, so unexpectedly, her needs skew in a different direction. Someone who knows nothing has no ability to understand what they truly want. She’s torn in two, desperate for something different but also wanting the comfortableness of the same. Ms. Wilder will fascinate you with her writing, pull you in, make you desperate for answers. You won’t be able to stop reading because you’ll need to know more. X will confuse you, captivate you, and force you to see things from her eyes, even if you’re yelling at her to do something different. I am desperate for more in her story.
<It does end in a mild cliffhanger>
