Forbidden desire is just the beginning…

Excerpt 

It was chilly in the basement. It was unfinished—concrete floors and walls, and a couple of shelves along one wall. It appeared to be the same size as the ground floor, but there were no walls. It was wide open. Mark wheeled out a few space heaters that had been hugging the wall, plugged them in, and turned them on. I stood next to one before deciding to go back upstairs to grab my coat. As I passed Diesel, he gave me a hateful look and that made me want to leave for good. So I grabbed my coat upstairs, but instead of heading back to the basement where the guys were tuning their instruments, I went into the bathroom and leaned against the counter, trying to decide if I wanted to find a place to sit tight or if I wanted to be brave and sit downstairs with a look of defiance on my face. Not sitting in the basement would be giving up. It would, on some level, be cowardly, and I knew that until his friends accepted me, I’d have to get used to their coldness. While it upset me on a personal level, I could understand where they were coming from when I really thought about it. Either they thought I broke up Kage’s marriage and I was here flaunting it (before the wedding corpse was even cold, so to speak) or they simply didn’t like a woman barging in on their guy time, especially practice time. If that was the case, I didn’t want to sit in there. I knew they were creating and working, and I didn’t want to interfere with it or make them feel awkward. If those had been the only vibes I thought I was getting, I could live with it and I’d even offer to stay out. Unfortunately, I was positive that wasn’t all I was feeling.

So I looked at my face in the mirror as though reasoning with myself, weighing the pros and cons that would influence my decision. I felt like Scarlett in Gone with the Wind, getting dressed before Melanie’s birthday party, only I didn’t have a Rhett demanding that I had to go. I was my own Rhett too, chiding myself for not moving, not going in there and dealing with whatever cold shoulders they wanted to give me. It was then, as I was focusing on my breathing and working up my courage, that I heard a tap on the door. I cleared my throat. “Yes?”

It was Kage. “Everything okay in there?”

I hadn’t lied to this man yet, and I wasn’t about to now. “No, not really.”

“Are you sick?”

“No.” I faced the door and turned the knob, peeking my head out.

“What’s wrong?”

I opened the door farther, inviting him in. I lowered my voice. “I feel really awkward around those guys. I know they resent me, and that’s fine, but I can’t decide if I want to hang out in the basement. I don’t know if they’re hating me because they think I’m the reason why you broke up with Fay or if they just don’t want me to watch you practice.”

He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me close after closing the door behind him. “Or maybe they’re pissed because I got the girl.”

I raised my eyebrows and smiled in spite of myself. “Oh, that’s not it.”

“Maybe it is.” I knew he was full of shit, but I didn’t mind when his lips brushed mine or when he drowned me in a kiss. It was easy to forget what I’d been feeling just moments ago. “They’re just going to have to get used to you.” He scanned my eyes until he could see my understanding, and then he kissed me once more. “Was it my imagination, or did you like my hand on your leg at the dinner table?”

If I’d blushed easily, my cheeks would have turned pink then, because I was surprised at how well he’d learned to read me in such a short time. My voice sounded hoarse and foreign to my ears when I responded. “The naughty side of me wanted you to keep going.”

Fallen Too Far – Abbi Glines

16070903Synopsis

To want what you’re not supposed to have…

She is only nineteen.

She is his new stepfather’s daughter.

She is still naïve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother.

But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…

Blaire just may have fallen too far.

My Review

Blaire has gone through some heartbreak throughout her 19 years. Losing her mother and sister and having her father walk out on them. When her mum dies, she’s forced to sell everything to pay the medical bills and now all that’s left is her truck, a twenty dollar note and her gun. The only living parent she has is her dad, whom she hasn’t seen in five years and now she has to go ask for him for help even though she’d rather not. But when she arrives at the address he’s given her, he’s not there and a full blown party is in its place.

Enter 24 year old Rush. He’s not happy she’s there and has given her a month to find a job and apartment and move out. As grateful as she is, this arrangement has now made her head spin and Rush has since changed his mind about this arrangement telling her she can now stay. But with Rush having a family secret, and his sister Nan, hating her for some apparent reason, Blaire wants to know what’s up, but when she does,  it changes everything!

Blaire was a great character to read. She hadn’t had much life experience since she looked after her sick mum for three years until her death and she has been through so much in her life, it was great to see her stay so strong and focus on what she wants to make something of herself in this lonely world without her mum and sister. She’s never really let anyone in, apart from her best friend Cain, but even then she had to let him go as he wanted more and she couldn’t give it to him. You do see her conflicted in her feelings for Rush. Since he was so harsh on her at times then so nice, it really did confuse her but her heart was still drawn to him, no matter how much she knew if something happened, it wouldn’t last as he is someone to just ‘fuck and dump.’ But she was so, so wrong…

I have to say…it did take me a while to warm up to Rush. The first time we meet him, I found him arrogant, egotistical and ignorant and of course, he was the son of a famous drummer so he had a lot of money to just throw around. That, of course, was down to what he knew about Blaire and her side of the family, so the only way he could act was being an absolute dickhead to her, but underneath his fucked-up ways, I did eventually warm up to him and find that deep down, he was such a lovely guy, but he was just being an asshole to Blaire because of Nan’s – his sister – secret, which no one thought to tell Blaire about until it was too late. I really felt for him at the end. It made my chest hurt when he was sobbing! YES sobbing to Blaire. For someone so closed off, his feelings were certainly brought to the service with Blaire, whom seemed to change is way of feeling. He wanted to be different with her, and he was, until the secret changed everything.

Grant. Oh what a lovely supporting character! I was drawn to him the instant he entered the scene with Blaire and he wanting to help her, unlike a certain brother of his at the start. He seemed like the type of guy who would be there for you, no matter what and would help you out. That’s something that I did like about him. He was willing to help Blaire out, no matter how weird it might have been within his family dynamic as there was a huge secret everyone was harbouring from Blaire.

The chemistry between Blaire and Rush was off the scale. The sexual tension between them sizzled at every turn and you could really see that they were so attracted to each other but Blaire was ‘innocent’ and Rush was a ‘fuck-up’ who thought she deserved more than him, but I was so glad that they both succumbed to their feelings, especially Rush, whose feelings you quickly saw rush to the service for Blaire. For someone who said he wasn’t a ‘kiss and cuddle’ person, he certainly felt that way with Blaire and it made the sex scenes that much more intense and emotional.

The story includes secrets, tragedies, jealousy, twists and heartbreaks. It truly is a book that needs to be read and that cliff-hanger at the end. Jesus! I cannot wait until March for the second book. I need to know what happens now.

My review

I’d been seeing this book about for a couple of weeks but I wasn’t really too bothered about reading it as nowadays there seems to be erotica everywhere since the uprising of 50 Shades. Although i love smutty books, i did decide to buy it for my kindle last night and see what the fuss was about – also i decided that it would be the only book from the series i would buy – this turned out to be a lie as i REALLY need to read the other member’s stories now! Especially Trey as i did fall a tiny bit in love with him.

At the start i did think it would be sex, sex, sex (which it is) but there is so much more to that book than that.
There’s Brian, who always falls head over hells too quickly for any girlfriend then gets his heartbroken and then there’s Myrna who’s been heartbroken and divorced from an abusive relationship and who finds it hard to love since her ex threw the words around meaninglessly at her.

I love that it was Brian who was the ‘romantic’ one of the relationship – it makes a change from the girl being tied to that spot especially as hes a rock star so you would think they had no feelings attached to them and they would be the ones disregarding the girls, but it wasn’t like that. Myrna didn’t want anything, she wanted a fling and then that be it, but bit by bit Brian kind of broke down her defenses and let her see that although love can be terrifying, he was in it for the long haul (as you can tell throughout the book – i loved him and felt sorry for him at times but i could see why Myrna was afraid)

It did annoy me when he said the L-word and she was like “I was waiting for you to say it.” Seriously? I know you’re afraid of loving someone but girls can say I Love You first – I sure as hell have done.

Other than that, I’d totally recommend this book to my friends – if they were into smut
