Review: In His Keeping by Maya Banks (rom-susp)

IN HIS KEEPING

  
Blurb:

Maya continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn series with this second book—a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.

Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.

Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

  Review:

This is 423 pages of a slow burn. Really I found myself skipping ahead several times. I normally love Maya Banks books but sometimes she gives you a book where is it feels like it’s dragging along at a snails pace. I really wanted her to get to the point. It’s like trying to listen to my father in law tell a story. He has to give you the background of everybody involved then the story, then the actual event is two minutes. But she we’ve it’s together to wear it all made sense in the end. 

The characters had good sex scenes. And the build up to maintain relationship is strong. I believe it will last a long time. 

Also she provided information for the whole story arc between the brothers and the family. So we get more information from what happened with their father. The plot thickens. 

So, overall I liked the book, didn’t love it. I may not read it again. But it was ok. Not the deviant naughtiness I am used to but it was a good reprieve.

#freebook Dissident by Cecilia London

image

She once was important. Now she’s considered dangerous.

In a new America where almost no one can be trusted, Caroline lies unconscious in a government hospital as others decide her fate. She is a political dissident, wanted for questioning by a brutal regime that has come to power in a shockingly easy way. As she recovers from her injuries, all she has are her memories. And once she wakes up, they may not matter anymore.

Dissident is part contemporary romance and part political thriller, with elements of romantic suspense and speculative fiction. Told mostly in flashback, it details the budding romantic relationship between our heroine Caroline and Jack, the silver fox playboy who tries to win her heart.

Part One of a Six Part Series. Each part is a full length novel between 60,000-120,000 words and ends in a cliffhanger. For readers 18+. This saga contains adult situations, including non-gratuitous violence, explicit (consensual) sex, psychological and physical trauma, and an oftentimes dark and gritty plot (particularly in part two).

Caroline’s journey continues in Conscience, now available for preorder (releases August 17, 2015).

“With equal parts political thriller and captivating romance, Cecilia London has crafted a novel that’s hard to put down and kept me wanting more! I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!” – Melissa Brown, Author of Wife Number Seven

“There’s so much delicious word porn in this book. YES, WORD PORN….It’s unapologetically an intellectual smut novel, which made me all warm in all the right places. There’s suspense, danger, anger, love, and (most importantly) delicious sex. GIVE ME MORE.” – Obsessed With Myshelf

“Behind all the information about elections and scandals is a beautiful love story that touched my heart. I fell in love with Caroline and think that Jack is one sexy man!” – Carol, StarAngels’ Reviews

“Cecilia London has one powerful and chaotic series breaking out of the gates at full speed! Is it a political suspense novel? Romantic suspense? Dystopian political romantic suspense? All I know is this is one riveting tale that packs a wallop….At no point could I see where this would end up and I must say, the ride to the finish and balancing on the edge of this cliff hanger is well worth the ticket to ride!” – Dianne, TomeTender

Review:
SPOILERS AHEAD CAPTAIN!!!!

I got this book for free on Kindle unlimited. I really didn’t expect much since I had the misfortune of reading “Taken by the T-Rex”.  In some ways or didn’t disappoint what little expectations I did have. It was short, and there was sex between a human and a beastly looking  dinosaur.

However,  if the author hasn’t mentioned the claws or snout, I wouldn’t have thought this was a animal at all. You could possible substitute freakish alien for the idea of a dinosaur and the book would still work.

I also didn’t expect the threesome or the last lines in the book about adding him to the group of fuck buddies or the sitter getting a girlfriend out of it.

Sex: 4 (even though it was out of my comfort box was still hot)

Plot: 1 (haha that’s funny,  a plot in dino erotica)

My overall enjoyment: 3 (because I was freaked out how well I enjoyed this,  and I didn’t really picture a dinosaur just an alien being with dino like features)

I’m going to hell,  I know.
