Opinião: "Until We Touch"

Autor: Susan Mallery
Série: Fool's Gold #15
Editor: Harlequin
Edição/reimpressão: Junho de 2014
ISBN: 9780373778935
Páginas: 384
Origem: Requisitado no NetGalley

Sinopse: From New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery comes the story of secret desires finally fulfilled…

After a family tragedy, former football hero Jack McGarry keeps the world at arm's length—a challenge now that his PR firm has moved to neighborly Fool's Gold, California.

Larissa Owens knows where she stands—Jack sees her as just another one of the guys. No matter what her heart wishes, Jack's her boss, not her boyfriend. But then Larissa's big secret is revealed…by her mother!

When Jack discovers the truth about Larissa's feelings, her touch suddenly becomes tantalizing, and he's not sure he wants to resist. But if he gives in to desire, heartache is sure to follow. Friendship or true love—will Jack go for the ultimate play?

A minha opinião: Já tinha saudades de Fool's Gold... E escolhi a altura perfeita para regressar, já que a acção de Until We Touch se passa no final do Verão/início do Outono.

Os protagonistas são, desta vez, Jack McGarry e Larissa Owens. Jack é um dos quatro sócios da empresa de relações públicas que se mudou recentemente para a cidade e Larissa é a sua assistente e a massagista dos quatro. E, para quem leu os dois livros anteriores da série, é bastante óbvio que Larissa está apaixonada por Jack. Mas não é só para nós que é óbvio, também para a mãe de Larissa o é, e ela não se coíbe de contar a Jack que a sua filha está apaixonada por ele e que é por isso que não avança com a sua vida. E pede-lhe que a despeça para que ela regresse a casa, case e tenha filhos...

Larissa nem consegue acreditar no que a mãe fez. Ainda por cima, não é verdade... Felizmente que Jack não faz caso e a relação de amizade entre ambos pode continuar como sempre foi. Mas depois Jack tem uma reacção a uma das massagens de Larissa que nunca tinha tido antes. E Larissa não consegue deixar de pensar que também quer o que a mãe quer para ela...

A revelação da mãe de Larissa abre uma caixa de Pandora e, de repente, Jack não consegue deixar de reparar e de pensar em Larissa. E quando ela percebe que afinal a mãe tinha razão, só consegue antever uma solução: envolver-se com Jack para que o encanto se quebre e a paixão termine. Mas e se o encanto, pelo contrário, só se tornar cada vez mais forte? Afinal, Jack sempre deixou bem claro que não tem qualquer intenção de constituir família. Mas não será que, sem se aperceber, já faz parte de uma?

Pelo meio temos uma série de peripécias envolvendo toda a espécie de animais, um órfão que precisa de ajuda, a Taryn e o Angel a planear o casamento, uma surpresa por parte de Sam e Dellina e o vislumbre do que aí virá para o Kenny... Ah, e a Mayor Marsha continua a mexer os cordelinhos nos bastidores...

Gostei muito da história e do romance entre o Jack e a Larissa. Gosto de romances entre amigos e a verdade é que, se analisarmos o histórico deles, era bastante óbvio que já eram mais do que amigos antes mesmo de se envolverem romanticamente. A sério, a paciência do Jack para as centenas de projectos e de causas da Larissa não se pode explicar apenas com amizade...

Mal posso esperar por regressar a Fool's Gold pelo Natal e ver o que a autora reservou para o pobre do Kenny. Suspeito que vá sofrer...

Este livro conta para os Desafios Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading 2016, TBR Pile 2016 e Monthly Key Word 2016 (touch).

Gratuitos na Amazon até 1 de Outubro


Moon Borne é o primeiro livro de uma série de fantasia em que cada livro segue um casal cujos poderes da mulher serão fundamentais para o lado do amor (personificado por Hades e Persephone) na futura guerra entre os deuses do Olympo. A mitologia criada pela autora é muito interessante e, até agora, tenho gostado bastante dos casais. Recomendo.

Wicked Lord of Thessaly é uma novela que, embora relacionada com os livros da série, não acompanha os eventos principais. Esta novela conta-nos a história de como Agrius, irmão de Thereus (o protagonista de Earth Borne), conheceu e se apaixonou pela sua mulher Eione. É uma prequela de Earth Borne, mas recomendo que seja lida após a leitura deste. É, também a primeira de uma série de cinco novelas, cada uma focada num dos irmão de Thereus, e já foram editadas mais duas.

Roping the Virgin is over-the-top sweet, with a heaping scoop of sexy steam. Blake sweeps his Luciana off her feet and gives her the life she’s always dreamed of.

Release Blitz Packet: Obsession by Ann Mayburn

obsession

obsession5

Synopsis
This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger)

Hannah

All my life, I've only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I've tried to please them. I'm starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I've scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention--and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they're probably illegal. I can only pray I don't scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am.

Leo

There are very few people in this world I've ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn't know it but I've been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there's no way she'll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust...a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah's absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn't hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don't feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She's mine, only mine, and I'm keeping her forever.

Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who's completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.

AboutTheAuthor
With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

A Disciple will fight like a savage when it counts.

A graduate of Loyola University Chicago with a BA in English, she still lives in Chicago, IL where she was born and raised with her boyfriend and her prima donna pet rabbit, Lola.

He’s her patient. She’s his doctor.
They shouldn’t. But God, do they want to.

New Sports Romance by Amy Daws!

CHALLENGE IS NOW LIVE
& FREE on Kindle Unlimited!




Blurb


Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn’t stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter—his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She’s not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

Indie’s tired of her naivety putting a target on her back. As a gifted child, she’s let her education take the front seat her whole life. But a fling with a footballer like Camden might be just what she needs to grab life by the balls.

And he could be the perfect guy for the plan she’s been sitting on for over two years.

But when feelings make a final play, there’s no amount of medicine that can heal the damage to their hearts.



CHALLENGE EXCERPT:
She chooses that second to lean over top of me and stuff the blood pressure cuff into a metal basket above my bed. She loses her footing slightly and, well, never one to waste an opportunity, my hands reach up to grip her lower back and pull her down on top of me. Her chest hits mine, and I’m assaulted with an orgasmic scent that must be distinctly of the Dr. Porter variety.
I’m not sure what I had planned. Truth be told, I didn’t completely think it through. Most likely I was just going to say something smart and see what else I could get to come out of her gorgeous mouth. But a flurry of excitement rips through me when her eyes flash to my lips and, in that instant, I know what I have to do.
I have to taste her.
Without hesitating, I sample her lips, giving her what her eyes were so quietly begging for. She lets out an audible groan, but it’s not a frightened groan. It’s a “you cheeky sod, I like this” sort of groan. It’s the kind of groan you make when you’re young and trying to fight off an orgasm that comes much too soon because you’re so inexperienced. It’s the kind of groan that makes all the pain in my knee completely dissipate. It’s the kind of groan that gives me the slightest glimpse of how hot she would be in the sack.
I forget all about the fact that I’m kissing my doctor. Right now, she’s simply an incredibly sexy woman who has managed to consume ninety percent of my thoughts since I arrived here over an hour ago. And denial is a dish best served hot and luscious, so I’m eating while I have the chance.
