SYNOPSIS

Erika

I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.
His name is Michael Crist.
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.

Michael

Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military,  and I find Rika alone at college. In my city.
Unprotected.
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Holly mother!! This book was good!! Full of suspense, an interesting revenge plot that has you guessing what happened to get to this point all thru the story.

The Story starts with College student Erika “Rika” Fane , we can see right off the bat that she is a very wealthy and connected girl , that is desperate to escape the golden cage that her wealth pouts her on , but also , she’s trying to move on from the feelings attached to her past and what happened a few years back.

“Run all you want, Little Monster,” he said, sounding like a threat. “We’re faster.”

She think she’s running, she doesn’t know that she’s being lured to the thing that she is trying to forget.

Since infancy, she’s always been attracted to the older brother of the Crist family, but he never saw her or even care that she existed alongside his family. Except, there was a shared moment 3 years ago when she thought that might have been different.

“I didn’t feel so lost when he was around. It was the only time I didn’t feel lost.”

She has no idea that the events that happen one night 3 years ago brought her to this moment in her life and that a plot is developing against her for revenge.

Michael Crist is a dark and enigmatic man, and he’s not prepared to face the consequences of living so close to his enemy.

“I’ll look out for my little brother’s girlfriend and keep her nice and safe in the light of day and not violate the fuck out of her in the dark.”

He and his friend want revenge, and they want it now , and they have a plan in motion to make Rika pay for what was done to them 3 years ago .

...:

There’s a huge attraction that brews beneath the surface of this 2 characters and as thing develop the steam grows bigger and headier.

This book is told in Dual point (which I love) and this makes the plot, so much more entertaining.

And what can I tell you about the sex scenes … WOWZAAA!! They are scorching hot, all 4 horsemen have something to add to the table (some more than others, according to me!)

Let me tell you this , Miss Penelope Douglas writes effortless and unputdownable story’s.

“Does this hurt?” he asked. I brought my head up to look at him, but he wasn’t looking at me. He was looking at Michael. I twisted my head, seeing Michael’s mouth open a little, taking in quick, shallow breaths. “Yeah,” he said in a low voice, his eyes meeting mine. “But you like it,” I stated, feeling one of Kai’s hands trail up my belly between us. “You like the sting. It turns you on.

...:

The only reason I didn’t give this amazingly fun and hot story a 5 star rating is ….. Because I love so much the fall away series that I just can’t compare it (at least not yet)

AMAZING BOOK … YOU MUST MUST GO FOR IT

Beautiful Player (Beautiful Bastard #3) by Christina Lauren

Book: Beautiful Player , by Christina Lauren

My Rating for it : 4 1/2 stars

SYNOPSIS

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget.

Now that Hanna has discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I have read, all the books in this series a long time ago, but this is the one d

That I decided to re read a few days ago (for like the 4rth time) because I can say without a doubt that it’s my favorite from the bunch.

Don’t get me wrong I love me some Emmet , he is amazing , but for me Will was the hole package , smart , great looking , steaming Hot , super clever , and damn funny ( which was a lot of the appeal for the character )

He is such a control freak, man-hore at the beginning that I found his personal growth, that much more appealing, he was unapologetically happy about his life stile with his schedule hookups and prearrange sex.

Will was the last of the bunch to be with out a significant other and that eventually was taking his toll.

Until his college friends asks him to help her sister Hanna in to a better social life, and here is where all happens because she comes to his life full of unexpected questions and challenges for Will, all in a pretty package that is sure to unravel him, because Ziggy is no longer a gangly teenage girl, she is all woman now!!

 

The fact that she was disarmingly genuine and funny and surprisingly pretty shouldn’t have thrown me so dramatically.

 

  Ziggy/ Hanna, was such a delight to read, she was funny as all hell, and had absolutely no brain to mouth filter which is a trait that I personally love in all my friends, she was such a cheerful character, discovering the delights of single life outside of a cold sterile lab, and realizing the power of a woman’s body.

beautifull player

 This story is passionate (some scenes are so hot, I mean very hot in the way that they get you all tingly after a few lines) and very tender too, it is a story about discovering your true feelings and realizing that at some point you need more in life than security and that you may need a deeper connection to someone, it revolves around the sense of finding your true home in someone that has been there for many year and you didn’t even see It coming.

Hanna is as curios as they come, with a childlike view at times, she approaches everything head on, but when she realizes that her feeling may be a bit more complicated than she expected, Will has been the lead character of her secret dreams for so long that the friends with benefits / mentor line get a lot blurry as time goes by for them.

So obviously things get a little hard for her and her original plan to learn from the master mind of seduction and leave unharmed.

 Secret agent. Like a Ninja. Learn from the best.

 

On the other hand will is discovering feelings that he has trouble admitting even to him self

he realizes that he needs more than what his schedule hookups are giving him , and Hanna may be the perfect mach for him in all things , which scare the shit out of him.

We get to see a lot of the other character during this book and we learn many thing from them (which are obviously little nips from the future books to come)

Like I said before this series is as good as they come this lady’s are geniuses at their stuff!! I can’t say enough how good every book they have written is …  This is my personal favorite , but I can assure you that which ever you pick up you will love ( no pun intended!)

I do recommend that they should be read in order because they have kind of a story line that has many spoilers if you do not follow the timeline.

So just go read it you won’t regret it!!!

4 Y MEDIO
