Book Description

Hold Me Down Hard by Cathryn Fox

A sexy category romance from Entangled publishing's Brazen imprint…

He'll break all the rules…

When Eden Carver, Iowa farm girl turned NY actress, decides to seduce the sexy cop next door, she begins to wonder if she's bitten off more than she can chew. 

The last thing Officer Jay Bennett wants is to cross a line with the sweet and innocent country girl—no matter how much he'd like to help himself to a nibble.  Not only are they in the friendship zone, a naïve girl like Eden doesn't belong in his dangerous world. 

But when she asks him to help her rehearse lines, and things go from simmer to boil, he finds himself doing the one thing he swore he'd never do.  He knows he needs to walk away from temptation, but when sweet little Eden bites back, it tilts his world on its axis.

Because biting back changes everything.

This title was previously released on the Flaunt imprint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sizzling, heartwarming, laugh out loud funny! May 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Multipublished author, Cathryn Fox has another hit on her hands with her debut release with Entangled Publishing!

Friends. What would we do without them? Or in Eden and Jay's case, what wouldn't we like to do with them?

I'm not going to give you another rundown on the plot, you've read that several times over and they've all hit the nail right on the head. This short, sexy read has it all. Great plot, a touching backstory for Jay--the super protective smoking hot cop next door, Eden, the actress with a secret wish to break free of her good girl image and get her kink on, Jay's frustration at lusting after his best friend while unable to make his move for fearing he'd be too rough for the sweet little girl from Iowa and scare her away with his dark sexual desires...It's the perfect recipe for a hot little read.

Oh, did I say I wasn't going to get into the plot? Sorry. But it's difficult not to, because this novella is just that good.

Ms. Fox has done an exceptional job of developing an intriquing, attention holding story that warms the heart, makes you laugh,[you have to see what Jay says about Eden's self composed script] and sets your e-reader on fire with scorching hot love scenes, all wrapped up in four neat little chapters that make you want to shake your iPad so more will magically appear.

Well done, Ms. Fox! And in the infamous words of Dickens..."please sir, I want some more"...or was that Eden? LOL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot! May 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book just jumps into the action, which makes sense - it's a short story. this short story definitely left me wanting more. This story would have been a fantastic full length novel, but for what it is, it was fantastic. The author did a great job creating a full and engaging story with the few words used.

I was pleasantly suprised with the depth of character portrayed. Often with the shorter stories,, you're left wanting more due to wanting more character development. In this case, I wanted more because the characters were so well developed and easy to like that I wanted more time with them!

Plus... This story was HOT! I can be iffy on BDSM - but this story was able to encapture the theme without oppressing women. I am very impressed! I would definitely recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spicy Romance May 13, 2013
By Whitney
Format:Kindle Edition
Hold Me Down Hard by Cathryn Fox is a super short novella that gives the reader a brief insight into the relationship of not so innocent country girl, Eden Carver and her next door neighbor, Police Officer Jay Bennett. Aspiring actress Eden wants to move out of the 'friend zone' with Jay so she and her friends write a sexy script and convince him to run lines with Eden.

If you're looking for a quick, spicy romance read, with it's brisk page and interesting characters then this is the short story for you!

Note: I received my e-book copy from Entangled with the promise for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, sexy and fun! July 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Hold me Down Hard is fast-paced, straight to the freaking point, and completely lustful! 

For some reason, everyone thinks Eden is a sweet, naive and innocent country girl from Iowa and this includes her hot best friend Jay. Little does anyone know that this aspiring actress has some sinful fantasies and fetishes. Sweet Eden likes to be tied up and spanked and she wants to be with someone who can give her that and more. I like a girl who knows that they want and that was Eden all the way. She was sexy, sensual and with the right push, wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted. Eden had a creative way of getting exactly what she wanted from Jay and I was damn proud of her! 

I can totally understand Eden's uniform fetish. There is just something about a strong man in a uniform that makes me want to pounce too. Jay was the perfect sexy cop I'd love to have in my bed all day! Jay was everything Eden has ever wanted in a guy and so much more. Jay was noble, protective, and totally sweet, but man does he like it hard, rough, and fast in bed. I liked that he didn't want to hurt Eden and respected her as a friend and as a woman. I think he underestimated himself when it came to Eden and I was so glad when he finally let loose and was able to be himself. 

Hold Me Down Hard does not hesitate and goes directly into the sexy times, so if you're looking for a drawn out love story plot line, you won't find it here. This is just intense sexual attraction and chemistry at work and it was hot as hell.

Overall, Hold Me Down Hard is one short and steamy read that will pique your sexual interest and have you really really wishing for more. Please prepare to have your boyfriend, husband or significant other at hand after finishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow this book was hot. June 21, 2013
By Annie
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars

Wow this book was hot. It was a really good short book, and I wish it would have been longer.

Eden is an actress. She isn't the sweet innocent farm girl her neighbor Jay thinks she is. She has her fetishes that were looked down upon by her ex. She is afraid to open herself up again. Is Jay the guy for her? Will he accept her?

Jay is a sexy cop. He really likes Eden, but he doesn't want to corrupt her. He thinks he is all wrong for her. So he decides to keep their relationship platonic. Will he give in to Eden? Can Eden be all he needs to make his life fulfilled?

This book was steamy. I really liked it. It was a fun fast read. I would recommend it!!!
