5 Star Review – Bound Beneath His Pain by Stacey Kennedy

 Tour Titles 5

What Worked For Me:

I’m not sure what you are doing right now, other than reading this review, but my first piece of advice to you would be to purchase this book immediately….then order in pizza, put the kids to bed early, find those comfy p.j.’s and settle in for one deliciously intense love story that will have you falling in love with just being in love, over and over again.  This book moved me on so many levels.  Micah is our brooding and intensely passionate hero.  I lusted after him immediately but I flat out craved him even more with the way he pursued Allie, our heroine, so thoroughly.  For a man who seems so remote and cold to the outside world, he is very warm and giving and generous.  I loved so many facets of his character and each layer the author revealed delighted me as a reader.  I was surprised, repeatedly, but the depth of emotion Micah possessed and it was a breath of fresh air in a world full of cookie cutter romance heroes.  And Allie?  I adored her.  She is everything I like in my heroine…she’s not a doormat and she knows exactly what she wants.  She is willing to fight to work in a relationship but she isn’t willing to settle and just be some man’s arm candy.  She has standards and a ridiculous amount of class and grace.  There isn’t one thing about her as a character the author could have written differently that would have made her any better.  Micah and Allie both have issues and obstacles to face, both separately and together but there is no denying from the very first meeting that they have some very explosive chemistry.  I was almost blushing at the intensity of their attraction!  There is a fantastic storyline that had me not putting down my device, not for anything.  I was engaged and entertained the entire time.  There are also plenty of secondary characters we are introduced to that make you thirst for their stories.  While there is some angst, there isn’t anything over-the-top that has you rolling your eyes at its absurdity, which has been a theme in some books of late.  Bound Beneath His Pain is a wonderfully written and decadently erotic treat for the senses and I personally would like to volunteer my time to visit Ms. Kennedy and offer nanny and housekeeping services, something I would NEVER do, just to ensure she has adequate time to write the next book in this series as quickly as possible.  Easily one of the best books I have read this year. 

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes…to any and all of my romance and erotic romance reading friends.

Final Star Rating:

5 Stars (but more like 10)

Cover Reveal – Dancing For the Badman by Hayley Faiman

Title: Dancing for the Badman
Series: Russian Bratva #3
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 25, 2016
A lifetime ago, Kirill Baryshev was a man in love. Born and raised to embody what it means to be a Russian soldier—hard, cold, and ruthless—she was the one person he trusted with his heart. She was his gold. She was his treasure. And then she was gone. Her death, coupled with the death of their unborn child, was an act of betrayal. She took herself away from him after learning who he really was. A badman. A Bratva man. 

A decade ago, Tatyana Orlova was a young woman who knew her future—and he was unbearably handsome. But when the FBI knocked on her door, warning her that her future was a dangerous man with ties to the Russian mafia, her fear rewrote her future in seconds. Pregnant and alone, she fled, the heartache of her decision something she knew she would carry with her always. Raising a daughter on her own, working the pole night after night, was far from a dream come true. Her life was about survival. Her hope was lost in reality—until her past darkened her door.

Lies. Regret. Fear. Anger. It all rises to the surface when the truth is revealed and Kirill and Tatyana are reunited. One federal agent’s obsession leads the fated lovers back together. But the love they once shared was shattered years ago, and the pain that accompanied that loss may not ever be overcome. Tatyana will endure Kirill’s cruel treatment toward her for the sake of their daughter, but the love she harbors for him is not lost. His presence makes her hope. His presence makes her dream. Maybe, just maybe, she can dance her way back into her badman’s heart.
