Manhattan Bound Series #2

By Juliette Braddock

Synopsis

wrapped-coverSweeping through the glitz and glamour of New York’s high society and the drama unfolding in the dressing rooms of Broadway, Wrapped, by Juliet Braddock, continues the journey of a young theatrical publicist’s foray into submission under the tutelage of a dashingly dark star of the stage. Wrapped—the much anticipated sequel to Braddock’s critically acclaimed erotic romance Weakened—is the second book in the Manhattan Bound series.

When Drew McKenzie presents Maxine Kirk with an ultimatum, challenging her to engage in his wanton brand of desire, she readily embraces her awakening hunger for a lifestyle that defies her perceptions of romance.

Entranced by Drew’s charming appeal and by his sensual assault to her senses, Maxine clamors to discover every nuance of this new relationship, ravenous to explore verboten fantasies that seem possible to fulfill only with Drew.

Along the way, he introduces her to his glamorous world of wealth and celebrity—where lavish galas and luxurious gifts are the norm—and entices her into his realm of control with his tender mode of domination.

All the while, however, they both grapple with painful emotions brought about by the extenuating circumstances of their separate pasts.

While Drew remains both confident and conscientious in his parlay of power over Maxine, his own tragic secret lurks in every shadow upon his path in life. Behind the façade of his stage persona and the origin of old Manhattan society, he struggles to hide the unforgiving reality he faced as a child.

Just as Maxine finds the strength to conquer her own torment with Drew’s patience and guidance leading her toward closure, terrifying truths begin to chip away at the surface of his composure.

As the nightmarish details of Drew’s unimaginable life emerge, he fears that this new world he’d begun to build with Maxine will crumble around him.

As Maxine finds herself embroiled in the battle to save Drew’s tortured soul from the atrocities that continue to stalk his every move, two lost souls struggling to find comfort and completion converge.

However, as Drew opens his heart to Maxine’s unwavering support, he questions his own bravery, wondering if she’ll take a bow and make her exit…or if she’ll stick around for the encore?

EXCERPT

Adjoa’s polite knuckle knock hadn’t worked, so her fist had to meet the door. He could sleep through anything. “Kwame, it’s me.”

When the door swung open, her eyes met a tall, sexy man with no shirt. The sprinkling of dark curly hair on his well-muscled chest forced her fingers to grip the handle of her bag so she wouldn’t reach out to stroke him.

A bicep flexed as he reached up to rub his eye. She’d always been a sucker for a man with a well-toned body, and this one met all of her muscle criteria.

Her gaze roamed up to the face scowling down at her. Holy crap. It was Kwame’s body she’d been ogling. She pushed past him so he couldn’t see her blush and headed into the kitchen. Grabbing a bottle of water from the fridge, she gulped it down. It didn’t come close to cooling her off. What was going on?

“Why aren’t you dressed? It’s seven.” She glanced down at her watch. “Five after seven to be exact. You should be ready to go.”

“I had a late night.”

Another swig of water at the sound of the sexy rumble of his morning voice didn’t help with the quiver in her stomach. Who was this man and why did he affect her like this? She hadn’t felt this way since she’d had that brief flutter of attraction in college. It had been easy to get over him when he started dating that hussy architect major.

“What were you doing? Computer work?” Please say yes. For years, they’d avoided detailed discussions about the people they dated; it seemed to be a mutual unspoken agreement between them.

“You know me too well.”

Relief flowed out of her in the form of a long exhale, glad he hadn’t been with a woman last night. Not that it should matter. Just because she’d asked him to be her fake man didn’t mean he couldn’t see other women. She didn’t even care. “Not good enough to circumvent you not being awake by now. Get going. Make it quick so both of us aren’t late.”

As he shuffled toward the bathroom, her gaze wandered down to his tight ass. Placing the cold, half-empty water bottle on her warm neck, she snapped her attention away. All of a sudden, her nerdy friend Kwame had morphed into a tempting man.

Review: The Ground Rules Rewritten by Roya Carmen

Hearts, Heroes and Happily Ever After received book two of the trilogy The Ground Rules, The Ground Rules: Rewritten, in exchange for an honest review and let’s just say, this book was devoured in about two days. It was one of those stories where the characters stay with you. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about the scenes I’d just read and wondering what the characters would do next. And once I’d finished it, I couldn’t believe I’d have to wait a few more months to discover how the trilogy will end.

If you’re a fan of erotic romance and are looking for a series that pushes the envelope and packs a powerful, angsty punch look no further than The Ground Rules series by Roya Carmen.

In the first book, The Ground Rules, readers meet two couples, the average but extremely likable Gabe and Mirella and the affluent, powerful Weston and Bridget. The premise of the series is what happens when two couples meet and share a chemistry so undeniable they do what many would consider to be the unthinkable, open up their marriages.

In book one, they give the couple swapping thing a go, but with stipulations, or ground rules. Of course, things don’t go according to their plan and ultimately, at the end of book one, the foursome ends the arrangement.

In book two, that unshakable chemistry rears its head once again and, after some internal struggle by Mirella, the arrangement is back on. With this book, Roya Carmen once again proves she can write not only a steamy novel, but one laced with inner turmoil and emotional angst. I knew going in that Mirella wouldn’t be able to play it cool and let the arrangement with Weston be just sex and I’m glad that I was right.

There’s a lot that happens in this book, I felt like it was a bit faster-paced than book one, but in a good way. The book does end with a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to see how things resolve when book three comes out, (currently slated for February 2016 according to the author’s website).

I thoroughly enjoyed this hot, wild read and I give it 4.5 stars. I’m seriously eyeing the calendar (im)patiently waiting for the third book. Is it February yet? 🙂

Here’s the book blurb and buy links for The Ground Rules Rewritten.

GRRFive simple rules. And it was very simple…until it wasn’t.

It could have been much worse. We weren’t thinking straight and had put everything on the line – risking our marriages. So when Weston ended the arrangement, it was for the best – for all of us. But I was still heartbroken. I thought I’d shatter into a million pieces. I didn’t, I survived. Not only did I survive, I came out stronger and ready to move on with my life.

But then…

Weston reaches out to me. With a few soft words, a gentle touch and a lingering gaze, he crumbles all my efforts.

Neither Gabe nor I want to start this again, and we are determined to fight the temptation. But Weston and Bridget are not taking no for an answer, and the pull between all of us is still so strong.

I tell myself I can handle it this time. This time, I am in the driver’s seat. This time, I am rewriting the ground rules.

Get The Ground Rules Rewritten at Amazon, Amazon.ca,  Barnes and Noble, iBooks, and Omnific Publishing.
