Review

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

This book is a quick and short read. I enjoyed it, like I always enjoy every book from Katee Robert. I always find her stories entertaining, and they always leave me with a feel-good feeling. Her characters are always very likeable. I also love that her books are equal parts sweet and steamy.

I’m not sure how many books I was able to read from this series, but I know that the first book I tried out in the Out Of Uniform series was a hit for me, so I followed the series from there. His To Take may be a short novella, but it will still definitely give you a complete and satisfying story of two main characters that any reader will root for even from the very beginning.

If you’ve read anything from Ms. Robert, then you shouldn’t miss this novella. Moreover, if you’ve read anything from this series, then you really have to check this book as well. To be honest, His To Take may not actually make it to my list of best reads this year, but it is still a book I won’t mind re-reading in the future.

When it comes to contemporary romance novels, I have to say that Tessa Bailey’s name is among the top of my list. Whether it’s a BDSM-themed book, a sexy action romance, or heroes who love to talk dirty, she always entertains me with her stories. Crashed Out is no different. I am not really a fan of older woman/younger man stories, but I make an exception for amazing writers like Ms. Bailey. As it turns out, I am not wrong in this.

Crashed Out is sweet, sexy, and even funny at times. The heroine is older than the hero, but any reader wouldn’t even get to focus on that fact. What you would gravitate to as a reader was the obvious chemistry between the main characters, the smooth character development that happens throughout the book, and the swoonworthy things that the hero does to win the girl.

I am also not a fan of rockstar heroes, but this hero is different from any rockstar you meet in fiction. He’s a good guy whos fame didn’t blow his ego too much. I think Crashed Out is a good way to start the series. It gets you hooked into the story and makes you look forward to more stories at the same time. I will really be on the lookout for more books from this series and from Ms. Bailey herself.

If you don’t like the DD/lg dunamics in a relationship, then this book and this series is not for your. However, if you haven’t tried something like this and would like to, then you can start with this book. This is the fourth book in the series, but it’s a good starting place for new readers because it has the best story out of the four books in the series.

The first three books, for me, were centered too much on the sex and the DD/lg relationship. Becoming Daddy’s Girl has hot sex, the DD/lg dynamics, sizzling dominance and submission scenes that all come hand in hand with a story that was sweet and touching. Our hero is a good man who was unappreciated. Our heroine is a good girl who was in love with the hero for a long time. I think this is my favorite book in the series.

Book 1 – Daddy Morebucks

Book 2 – Daddy’s Game

Book 3 – Poor Little Daddy’s Girl

Book 4 – Becoming Daddy’s Girl

I remember binge reading the Gypsy Brothers series. For the longest time, I tried putting it off. The series sat in my Kindle for a long time because I got too afraid to read it. The thing was, I like dark stories. But I wanted them as standalones, or as duologies at most. I didn’t want to be too invested to read an entire serial like the Gypsy Brothers was, and I had seven books to read. However, the moment I started Seven Sons, I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop until I got to the very end.

Zero Hour is now Jace and Juliette’s story. This is how their life became after Dornan died. Of course, they were all still on the run, being chased by the MC and the cartel, not being able to trust many people. Most of all, they had their own trauma to live through. It seemed like Dornan was still ruling over all of them even from the grave. Dornan’s character has always been dark and compelling. I liked him at times, but I absolutely hated him too. I think I was just like Juliette who loved Dornan before he did what he did to her.

Jace and Juliette both have long to go before they can go back to normal, and at this point, I don’t think they will ever be normal at all. I definitely loved this conclusion to the series. I don’t know if I have a favorite among the eight installments. It feels like they all come together as one explosive story in one very long book. If you followed the Gypsy Brothers at all, you should certainly get this book. This is the best ending I could ever think of for Jason and Juliette.

Excerpt

I don’t even stop to see what kind of furniture the room consists of. I throw Juliette on the floor and pounce on her like I’m a lion and she’s my catch.

My dick’s inside her within three seconds of the door closing, even though its dark in here, the only light from a couple of candles throwing off weak light. It could be the middle of the day and I wouldn’t have a clue, because all I can see is Juliette Portland underneath me, her legs spread and her pussy full of me. I put my hands around her neck. I want to squeeze. I want to choke her so fucking badly. Goddamn it! I stop grinding my cock into her. I just stop.

“I don’t want to hurt you,” I whisper in the dark. “Julz, the things I used to do in this place—I used to hurt people and get off on it. I don’t want to hurt you, baby.”

She reaches up and grabs hold of my face; I can just make out her eyes, her pupils almost swallowing any trace of green.

“Jase,” she breathes, “What if I want you to hurt me?”
