Review: The Silk Tie by Lily Harlem

The Silk Tie is the first book that I have read by Lily Harlem, but it definitely won't be my last. I am a huge fan of Erotica, but lately the books I have read in the genre have lacked any real heat to me. That was absolutely not the case here, and I have to say that The Silk Tie was definitely one of the hottest books I have ever read. I loved the characters and absolutely devoured this book.

Gabe and Hayley are a happily married couple with fulfilling lives. They are both have successful careers and are open and honest with each other, often times trying new things in bed together. But Gabe finds himself drawn to his new client Brent, and starts to wonder what it would be like to be with the sexy man. Gabe struggles with his new fantasies and the guilt he feels over his feelings. But when Hayley finds out, she can't help but be excited about the thought of two men together and agrees to see her husband and Brent together. As Brent and Gabe explore the attraction between them with Hayley close by, they begin to feel more and soon the three of them start to wonder what their future looks like. Can Hayley and Gabe make it through this new side of their relationship, and will they allow Brent into their lives permanently?

I really liked these characters. They were all fantastic, and I loved how respectful and honest they were with one another. Gabe was so scared to explore things at first because of Hayley and what it would mean for him as a guy but also for his marriage. But his attraction and feelings for Brent continued to grow and it wasn't hard to see why. I was glad that he talked to Hayley and Brent about it all and that they were able to be open about everything. Hayley was so understanding and encouraging. She really embraced the change her relationship was taking and I was glad to see her right there every step of the way. Not only did she enjoy what Gabe and Brent were doing, but she genuinely didn't feel any jealousy and just wanted to be a part of it. Brent was probably my favorite though. He was so sweet and kind. He was patient and thoughtful, and I loved that he talked to Hayley about things and that he insisted on her being there for everything. It really showed that he not only respected Gabe and Hayley as individuals, but that he also respected their marriage. These three had a ton of chemistry between them as a group, but they also had it as pairs as well. They were so hot, and I loved all the sexy action in this book. It was well written and showed the growing connection between all the characters as well as just the physical side of what they were experiencing.

Overall, this was a great book and I loved the heat in this one. If you are looking for some seriously sexy times that explore many different situations, this book is definitely one you should try out. It has it all. I really loved seeing Gabe and Brent explore things between them and really develop such a strong bond, but I also really loved seeing Brent and Hayley grow in their feelings for one another as well. I thought that Lily Harlem did a great job of showing that the connection and love between Gabe and Hayley never changed or diminished. It was always present and as strong as ever. But with the addition of Brent, there was even more love there. It was just with another person added in, and it felt so real. I didn't ever question the connection between them, and I felt like Brent was a natural addition to their relationship. I saw no jealousy and didn't feel as though anyone was left out or not as wanted as anyone else. Sometimes with menage stories that can be the case, but it wasn't with The Silk Tie and it made me love this story even more. I will say that I thought that the sex between these three was the majority of the book. While it was hot and I enjoyed it, I wish that we would have seen a bit more of them out in the real world and adjusting to their new lives outside the bedroom as well. That was the only reason for the four star rating instead of a five. I will absolutely look for more from Lily Harlem though, and I can't wait to go back and read some of her previous stories as well as see what she does next.

ARC Review: Light Her Fire by Samanthe Beck

Wow! Just when I thought Samanthe Beck couldn't get any hotter...I definitely don't recommend reading Light Her Fire in a public place because this one was hot, hot, HOT!

I loved the chemistry between Josh and Melody. Seriously, they had some pretty smoking chemistry together and it just seemed to jump off the pages. From their first encounter to the last their relationship felt fresh and I just found myself not only rooting for them but unable to put the book down.

Coming off a ten year engagement, Melody is looking for some fun and excitement with no strings attached. When she catches Josh looking at her with want in his eyes at the market she figures it's finally time to make her move before she looses her nerve. What occurs after between these two will leave you panting for more.

I really liked these two. Josh is a sexy alpha fire chief (seriously can't get any hotter) and Melody is the sweet girl next door with a naughty side. Together these two were explosive and I really enjoyed watching them fall for one another.

I hope that Samanthe Beck decides to write more stories set in Bluelick because I'm loving this small town. Plus there was mention of a sexy Wolverine that I'm super intrigued by and definitely want more of. Light Her Fire was a super sexy story and I highly recommend you rush out and get a copy now. You won't be disappointed at all.

Audiobook Review: Torn by Kim Karr, Narrated by Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox

The Connections series by Kim Karr is one of my favorite contemporary series that I have ever read. I really love all the characters and I find them all really interesting. Each character is unique and deep, and I love that Kim Karr has made them so real by giving them to us flaws and all. After reading and loving Torn, I really wanted more of my favorite characters so I couldn't wait to be able to hear their story.Torn has the same narrators from the Connected Audiobook, and I thought that Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox did a great job again with Torn.

Torn picks up after the shocking events in Connected, and the reader quickly finds out more about where the cliffhanger left off. Now that we know Ben is not really dead and has returned home, River and Dahlia are both left to wonder what the future holds for all of them. Dahlia thought that Ben was the one for her, but after his death she reconnected with River and they discovered a connection unlike anything they had ever felt before. Even though Dahlia needs to know about what really happened with Ben, she is committed to River and determined to show him that Ben being back changes nothing between them. But even though River knows how Dahlia feels about him, he is also scared that now that Ben is back things will change. With Ben determined to get back everything he had before, including Dahlia, will River and Dahlia be able to get through everything and have a future together? Or will the obstacles in their way tear them apart?

River and Dahlia are some of my all time favorite book characters. I really love both of them, and I love how perfect they are for each other. They are so different from any other characters I have ever read before, and I really loved seeing the narrators continue to bring their story to life. This book is so much more emotional than the first, and both River and Dahlia are struggling with what their new circumstances mean for their relationship. I felt like Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox did such a great job of really showing the emotion and turmoil that these characters are feeling. Their narration made everything so realistic, and listening to the audiobook almost felt like you were really a part of what these characters were going through.

I really thought that Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox were great narrators for this story. They were clear and easy to understand. They were also able to do multiple characters well so that they listener always knew who was talking. I thought that Christian did a great River, but he also does a really great job at Ben as well. Veronica Meunch continued to show that she is great at Dahlia as well, and I really thought that she was one of the better female narrators that I have listened to so far. I am really enjoying these two in this series, and I really hope that they will continue to narrate the audiobooks for the Connections series. They do such a great job of bringing Kim Karr's fabulous books to life, and I really think that they are the perfect pair of narrators for these books.
