 No one ever said a lasting love would be easy.

When Chase and Kay hit the streets of Las Vegas, the goal is simple—rescue Will, Chase’s brother, from making the biggest mistake of his young life. But keeping Will out of trouble turns out not to be the only obstacle in Chase and Kay’s path. Finding himself back in the city that broke him, Chase’s heartbreaking past threatens to derail all the progress he’s made.   However, Chase is determined not to let that happen.   While striving to help Will before he implodes, Chase seeks to come to terms with the things that almost destroyed him. He soon discovers that the answers to the most complicated questions sometimes lie in one’s own heart. You just have to be willing to dig deep enough to find them.   Can Chase succeed in doing that?

Just Let Me Love You is a story of healing, letting go, and trusting love to guide you. The conclusion of the Judge Me Not trilogy brings everything full circle.

My Review:

I have said it before and I will say it again, trilogies are one of my ideal reading formats and S.R. Grey has mastered the fine art of the trilogy! The Judge Me Not trilogy comes to an end with this near-perfect final read, Just Let Me Love You. From the moment they met, Chase and Kay have had an intense connection to one another and over the course of their relationship, they have worked hard to stay connected and always be true to themselves and one another. Both know they can survive anything as long as they are together which makes it all the more difficult for Chase to tell Kay that he is going along to Las Vegas to help his little brother, Will. Yeah, we’ll see about that!

Before he can even get out of the airport, Kay is by Chase’s side and ready to help him face not only his mother but the prospect of his little brother doing something life-alteringly stupid. From the moment they arrive in Vegas, Chase is on edge and relies heavily on Kay to keep him grounded and focused. Chase not only has to deal with Will who is hopelessly lost but with his mother who is absolutely clueless about what is going on with her boys. It’s never smart to try and fight a battle on two fronts so Chase and Kay divide and conquer. Chase starts by helping his mother to pull her head out of her ass and Kay follows up by keeping her occupied while Chase works on Will. Will is so far up his crazy girlfriend’s ass that he is willing to kill in order to protect her. Chase understands the need to protect the ones you love and though he gets where Will is coming from, he also doesn’t want to see his little brother go to jail when there is a far simpler solution to the problem.

As events with Chase’s family unfold, Chase is forced to face the demons from his own past. Through it all, Kay is by Chase’s side and helps him to come to terms with his past and face his future with a far less burdened soul. As the end of the summer draws near and Chase and Kay begin to think about their return trip home, Will asks Chase to stay just a bit longer. Though Chase and Kay are loathe to be separated from one another, Chase feels responsible for his little brother and wants to be sure he really is on the straight and narrow. On the eve of Chase’s return to Kay, fate plays a cruel trick on them both and nearly takes Chase’s life in a violent and most devastating wreck.

The Bottom Line: Just Let Me Love You is exactly how a trilogy should come to an end!! Over the course of the series Chase and Kay have both grown as individuals and as a couple and this final story really allows them to come full circle. This read has everything I expect to find in an S.R. Grey read, loads of emotion, some really fantastic naughty bits, just the right amount of drama and, and ending that is both completely realistic and believable for the characters. Nothing in this read is out of place or forced but is the logical conclusion for two characters that I have become quite attached to. At the end of it all, I found myself totally engrossed with this read and though I am sad to be letting go of Chase and Kay, I am also thrilled with their ending.

My Rating: 4/5 stars

My Review:

Vi Keeland is back and swinging for the fences with Throb, a sexy and fast-paced read centered on reality TV, one hot and compassionate contestant and, two brothers who have been at odds with one another for the majority of their lives.

Kate Monroe is stunning and the moment Cooper Montgomery lays eyes on her, he knows she will be his no matter the cost. Their first encounter is light and fun with Kate taking every penny Cooper (and the others) have in a night of poker. Turns out, Kate isn’t just a girl who can play cards but a card dealer and the daughter of a world champion poker player. Though the odds were certainly in her favor to win, Cooper doesn’t mind handing her every penny he has in the hopes of another meeting and the opportunity to win back his losses. Cooper isn’t used to being turned down by the women he is interested in so when Kate shoots him down he sees it as a challenge more than a rejection.

Kate Monroe has given up everything she wants in order to protect and provide for her family. Though her father was a world class card player he was also a gambler who always chased the next win. When her father died, Kate’s mother was left with huge debts and a son who requires costly treatments as a result of devastating car wreck. When the bills aren’t getting paid and her brother’s treatments are threatened, Kate quits school, starts dealing cards and, signs up as a contestant on a reality show. If Kate can make it to the final four, she will be able to reduce some her family’s burden. If Kate can win the competition she will be able to wipe out all of the debt and ensure her brother’s continued care. All Kate has to do is convince the bachelor that she is the woman among many for him. The rules of the game are quite simple and as soon as Kate signs the contract, she is bound to the rules.

Kate never counted on meeting Cooper Montgomery and she certainly never counted on her intense attraction to him. Jeopardizing her participation in the show by seeing Cooper is risky but the attraction they have to one another is undeniable. Cooper has no idea why Kate is participating in the show and with every ounce of his being, he wants her uninvolved immediately. To make matters far, far worse Cooper’s loser brother, Miles is the producer of the reality show and he is desperate on many levels to see the show succeed. Kate is an audience favorite and so, Miles takes every opportunity available to put her into a position of enticement. It certainly helps that the bachelor (not-so-affectionately known as Dickhead) is totally into Kate and relishes every moment he can be near her and touching her. Kate is stuck between a huge rock and a hard place and every encounter with Cooper draws her closer to him and away from her goals. Achieving her goals is paramount and eventually Kate is forced to fess up to Cooper about her involvement in the show. Though Cooper understands her motivation, he is not happy with it or her decision to stay the course. Cooper is man used to getting what he wants, Kate wants Cooper and the prize money and so, they two devise a series of personal rules that will allow Kate to care for her family on her terms and be with Cooper. The situation is certainly not ideal and though Cooper is on edge constantly, he supports Kate. The two have wicked sexual chemistry and every time they are together Cooper all but brands Kate so she won’t forget who it is she belongs with. As fate would have it, Cooper’s brother really is a totally loser and when he figures out that Kate is not only violating the rules of her contract but seeing his brother, he endeavors to ruin them both.

The Bottom Line: Throb is all kinds of sexy and exciting and Cooper is already one of my favorite leading men for 2015. The premise of Throb just begs for all kinds of drama and it is delivered in spades (HA!) Kate is so strong and adamant about helping her family that she is nearly blinded by her determination. Cooper is equally strong and determined and does everything within his power to make Kate his. Cooper is blindsided by his brother’s betrayal and the fallout from that betrayal is nearly the end of everything Cooper holds dear. He is such a good man and fine partner for Kate that is heartbreaking to see the two of them split apart. Getting to their HEA is dramatic and somewhat wretched but the end is worth the wait.

As much as I loved this read (and I did!), I do have a few issues with the ending. Miles digs up some pretty damaging dirt on Kate and though he is eventually shut down, I never found out what happened to that information. Furthermore, even though I found out that Miles and Cooper’s relationship goes from bad to worse, there is really no resolution to their story. Since the book doesn’t end on a cliffhanger at all, I found myself frustrated by the few loose ends I was left with. Overall, these loose ends didn’t kill the read for me but they did leave me wondering.

throb teaser 2

Excerpt from Throb:

Every girl needs three things:

1. A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.

Meet Cooper: My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin. The brief contact stirs an ache inside me. This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.

“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.

“Did I just what?”

She squints at me. “You know.”

“Do I?”

“I felt your tongue on my hand. You…you licked me.”

I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it. It just sort of …happened. “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”

“So you tasted me?”

My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation. “I suppose I did. But it wasn’t nearly enough. That brings us back to my invitation for dinner. Tomorrow night?”

“I can’t.”

“The day after then?”

She laughs and shakes her head. The sound makes me smile.

“Good night, Cooper.” She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

2. A best friend to talk about him to.

Meet Sadie: “And?”

“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”

“How was his office?”

“Really? That’s what you want to know. Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract? How was his office?”

“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”

I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass. “His office was beautiful. Sleek, overlooking the city. It oozed power.”

“Nice. Bet he fucks like he owns you.”

The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.

“Go on,” Sadie prods.

I don’t continue immediately.

“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?” My best friend smirks knowingly.

“Shut up.” I pause. “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

“Well, him. Obviously.”

“I wish it were that easy.”

3. A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.

Cooper – behind closed doors.: “You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet. Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them. When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen. You know why? Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good. Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically. Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute. So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy. Now let’s put the rest of this behind us. Do you want to be with me tonight?”

After that prelude, I nod my head fast. I’m no fool. Who wouldn’t?

Synopsis:

Acclaimed literary biographer Elizabeth Winston writes about long-dead heroes.  So bad-boy rock icon Zander Freedman couldn’t possibly tempt her to write his memoir.  Except the man is a mass of fascinating contradictions–manipulative, honest, gifted, charismatic and morally ambiguous.   In short, everything she seeks in a biography subject.   When in her life will she get another chance to work with a living legend? But saying yes to one temptation soon leads to another.   Suddenly she’s having heated fantasies about her subject, fantasies this blue-eyed devil is only too willing to stoke.   She thought self-control was in her DNA; after all, she grew up a minister’s daughter.
She thought wrong.  

Rock star Zander Freedman has been an outlier–many would say an outcast–for most of his life.   But there’s no disaster he can’t overcome, from the breakup of his band to the inevitable damage to his reputation.   His Resurrection Tour is shaping up to be his greatest triumph–if his golden voice holds out.   Contracting a respected biographer is simply about creating more buzz. Elizabeth’s integrity is the key to consolidating his legacy as one of  rock’s greats.   All the damn woman has to do is write down what he tells her. Not force him to think.   Or encourage the good guy struggling to get out.
And certainly not make him fall in love for the first time in his life.  Turns out he is scared of something: being known.

The rock star & the academic: Making opposites attract by Karina Bliss

I love the opposites-attract trope, ‘You say toe-ma-toe, I say toe-mate-o’. (FYI, as a Kiwi, I say it the first way). I couldn’t have written two people more different than my egotistical, rock-star bad boy Zander Freedman and my warm-hearted, church-brat academic Elizabeth Winston.  With opposites, it’s easy to see what’s keeping your characters apart. But when you’re writing romance, what’s more important is what brings and binds these two together. What do they have in common? Both Zander and Elizabeth are smart, independent, take-charge people who share a similar sense of the ridiculous, and I made sure my plot gave them opportunities to join forces.  I found this wonderful Oscar Wilde quote, which I adopted as my theme for Rise. “Every saint has a past, and every sinner a future.” As I wrote the book, it reminded me to add dimensions to my story characters. Just because my heroine is a good person doesn’t mean she lacks a wild side, and vice versa for the hero.  Opposites or not, the hero and heroine need to appreciate each other in a way no one else does. In Zander, Elizabeth sees a caretaker hero, capable of kindness and vulnerability. In Elizabeth, Zander sees a wolf in sheep’s clothing, someone as adventurous as he is.  In a romance, the challenge for opposites is to incorporate the qualities of the other – the qualities they lack – so two halves become a perfect whole.  Can you recommend favorite romances that use this dynamic?

kaleidoscopte teaser

Excerpt from Kaleidoscope Hearts:

What’s wrong?” I asked as she wiped her tears and shook her head. Her face was no longer wet, save for the dip over the top of her lips. I’d never noticed how full they were before then. I’d never noticed how rosy and defined her cheekbones were, or the way her eyebrows turned into a slight frown when she looked at me. I’d never paid attention to how ridiculously alluring her eyes were. The different shades made them look like the marbles I used to collect when I was a kid. My gaze drifted down to her neck, where I noticed her swallow, and then over her tits, which were now full, not like the last time I’d seen her in a bathing suit when she was still flat chested. Jesus Christ, this girl was hot.

The clearing of her throat made my eyes snap back to hers, putting an end to their voyeuristic journey down her now grown up body.

“You’re so grown up,” I said before I could stop myself and cringed at the voice I said it in, all needy and husky and fuck my life, desperate. I expected her to roll her eyes, the way she normally did when I said anything to her, but this girl, this freaking girl looked at me and smiled the sexiest smile I’d ever seen. And I had just been at a party full of hot girls smiling, but Elle’s was slow and sensual when she wasn’t trying to make it be. It was just her smile, the one I’d been seeing for as long as I could remember. Putting that smile on this grown up version of her should be down right illegal.

“Are you hitting on me?” she asked, with a sultriness in her voice that surprised the hell out of me.

“That depends,” I said, inching to sit closer to her, somehow completely forgetting that I was in my best friend’s house and this was his little sister. The thought of Vic finding us crossed my mind, but I pushed it down. In that moment, under a sky full of stars with a sad Estelle, all I could think about was making her smile.

“What does it depend on?” she whispered.

“Whether or not it’s working,” I whispered back, lifting my hand and running it down her back, a motion I shouldn’t have done because now I knew Elle wasn’t wearing a bra under the oversized sweater she had on and that knowledge woke up everything in my lower region.

Excerpt from Behind the Door (Part 1: Behind the Door Series):

Before I could react, he had pried my legs apart and was working along my inner right thigh, moving slowly upward. By now, my reservations were gone and I surrendered to him. And when his fingers reached the junction between my legs, I gasped when his hands slipped under my butt and gripped my cheeks, squeezing them in his hands. He could see every intimate part of me, I was sure of it. Letting go of my butt, his hands came around to my folds. At that moment, when his finger slipped between my legs, I clapped my hand over my mouth, suppressing my scream.

His fingers moved along my folds, tracking my wetness up and down. I was so wet at this point that my insides heaved with desire as he stroked me. I wanted to cry out, ask him what he was doing, but I didn’t. I let him manipulate my folds, slowly, methodically bringing me to orgasm. My hips began rocking in time with his hands. God, those hands were making me feel things I never thought possible. I could feel my climax building, like a wave caught in the shallows it was gaining momentum, waiting to wash over me.

I was at his mercy now. I ached for release and was willing to do anything to achieve it. But when his finger inched back and forth over my vagina, teasing me with the promise of what was to come. I bit my lip, desperate for him to penetrate me. His fingers did not wait long to slip inside of me, and when I felt the pressure of him moving deeper, I arched my back and moaned. He was rubbing back and forth over that spot, the one so many men try to find but give up. Well, Mr. Hands knew exactly where my spot was, and as he slowly moved in and out of me, I knew I was going to come harder than I had ever come before.
