Enough of that though - this book. Adored.
Mitch is one of those frustrating heroes that's all closed up inside emotionally and you just want to kick him, but he has such good reasons for being guarded that you also want to pet him and tell him that everything's going to be okay. On top of that, he's a sexy and demanding Dom that makes you want to drop your panties.
I loved Laurel. She was an exceptionally strong heroine, one who had the guts to walk away when she needed to and - even more important - to stand her ground when the stakes were high. So many books have the hero chasing after the heroine after he messes up, and it's good to see the groveling, but in a relationship not everything can be high drama and "we're over" as soon as there's a fight. Both people have to be willing to fight FOR the relationship when the fight is over, despite their pride, despite their hurt... and Laurel is strong enough to do that and to show Mitch how a relationship SHOULD be. All he has to do is be deserving of that.
There's some danger, some twists and turns, plenty of humor, just a little bit of Ian's delightful relationship advice, and some new characters that have me super curious. Speaking of adoration, I really hope Kai gets his own book or novella eventually (although, like most of her novellas, Adored is more like a short book than a true novella) because listening to him talk about women and relationships... ha! His theories are sound, but he's obviously lacking in some practical experience =D
And, when you get to the epilogue, you'll probably curse Ms. Blake for not having the next book ready immediately. There's a reason she's an automatic-buy author for me, and I have not been disappointed yet.
The 1001 Dark Nights Series offers a unique opportunity for authors to showcase a favorite series, share their secrets and seduce the readers. Each book is connected only by the fact that the author has written a novella and considers it a story that Scheherazade might have told (I don't know that but it sounds right since this series is loosely based on the Arabian Nights). But for me, these tales are ones that could be told in the darkest nights, whispers of romance and desire, Masters and Monsters, Decadence and Dragons, Dreams and Desires.
Today's whisper that roared is another by Lexi Blake. Ms. Blake takes us back to the members of Sanctum and her Masters and Mercenaries Series. Masters and Mercenaries is an erotic, BDSM Series but as the series develops it's less obvious in it's BDSM. Oh it's there, we are aware of it but often it's just background information. The stories themselves drive the books.. It's a sensual tease.
Adored is a novella that runs parallel to the main story arc. It is more focused on the club or rather the members of the club rather than the employees of the McKay-Taggart Security Services. Pretty much all of the novellas are based around the club rather than the company.. but they do connect.
Laurel Daley by nature is a people pleaser.. she can't help it it's who she is but as her brother opens up about his lifestyle, Laurel also realizes that she's a submissive and wants to learn more about it. She also dreams of calling her pain in the ass, arrogant, afraid of change boss her Master. Only he's pushing her away as hard as he can. When she finally has a chance to connect with him, she is devastated when he once again pushes her away. Only this time, a baby is involved.
Mitch Bradford is a wounded man. A harsh childhood, two broken marriages and finally he's given up on love. He knows that sweet Laurel is attracted to him and he really really returns the attraction but he feels she deserves better than a broken man ten years her senior. But when they finally have sex and he pushes her away, poor Mitch is all but lost. Discovering she is pregnant brings her back into his life and maybe, just maybe Mitch will get it right.
*SIGH* this was one of those books. The ones you roll your eyes at, cheer for the heroine, yell at the hero, laugh at the secondary characters... It's fun, it's sexy and it's pretty much right on target. Mitch is in his late 30's (39) and feels like a two time looser, Laurel is in her late 20's and doesn't see being twice divorced as a detriment.. Now that is a true generational fact..
But there is so much more in this book. Mitch has reasons for his fear of change and he has to face them if he ever wants a life with Laurel..
And well, I wanted to smack Laurel's family. Honestly close or not I would be smacking any member of my family that invaded my life the way they did hers. But it was real, emotional and believable.
The secondary story was intense in and of itself but it also worked wonderfully to bring these two together.
Another great job by Ms. Blake.
