Knockout is the latest contribution in the Tapped Out series which begins with Shadowboxer (at the time of this review it is offered for the astonishing price of FREE btw!!!) While there are light references to characters from previous stories in this series, you by no means have to read any other story to be sucked into this underground MMA world based in New York. In fact MMA is simply in the background and it is the characters and their life experiences that is forefront in this installation. You are introduced to Emerson, who lost his father as a child, Lily who lost her mother as a child and JC who despite coming from a family of money and has both parents living, might as well have lost them both because of their neglect. This is a wonderful story of two young children that grow up together yet unknown to each other fall in love, but hide their feelings because of loyalties and sense of family. Along the way a third person enters their orbit and slowly ingrains himself in the lives of Lily, by being a best friend, and Emerson, through a sense of jealousy towards his relationship with the woman he secretly loves and an attraction to the man he struggles with. I enjoy how the characters hide their attraction, lust and love for each other as they work through their issues trying to make sense of it all. And when they do come together it is explosive sex! One of the things I absolutely love about Cari Quinn is she doesn’t make you wait forever for the sexy parts, yet she can give you several life times of background and develop her characters so quickly that the sex, love and lust seem so natural. The other thing I love about Cari Quinn is she gives you lots of excellent, well-written sex scenes. There is no waiting 75% of the story for the one big hook up, then slam into the happily ever after. Ms. Quinn gets you there quickly, then deals with the aftermath and resulting feelings and conflict before you get the HEA. Each book in this series keeps getting better and better!
KNOCKOUT – Cari Quinn
This steamy new adult novella may not be long, but it's packed with sex and emotion as Lily, JC and Emerson discover that the feelings they have for each other are more than they ever dared to admit, until now. It's told from all three points of view in first person, and they are each quite interesting characters. Lily is the daughter of the gym owner where she works, a 20 year old woman who is looking for a little adventure. I'll be the first to say that at age twenty, I'm pretty sure a menage partnership would never have even occurred to me but Lily has the gumption to pull it off. Emerson is a young man her father took a liking to at a young age and helped out with his career as a now up and coming MMA fighter. He's always seen Lily as hands off but there's no denying that he has a strong attraction to her.. And JC is a friend of Lily's, working on a construction project at the gym who just happens to have his eye on Lily and Emerson too. He initiates the action between them at a house party where they are the only invited guests, and a hot and heavy encounter between the three of them ensues. But one night isn't going to be enough for them, and they find ways to spend more 'quality' time together. They get a happy for now ending (one that doesn't delve into the logistics of a long term partnership, which is fitting for their ages) but we know their relationship will continue to evolve. A quick and very sexy read!
HOT SUMMER NIGHTS – Cathy Clamp
When two people unknown to each other are the joint inheritors at a motel property, it's a chance for them to connect and save the property at the same time as they find a future with each other. This is a short but sexy read, and I liked both characters. Little did they know that Sophie's grandfather and Gabe's mentor had planned on doing this little bit of matchmaking by making sure they'd have little choice but to work together. They have a steamy love scene and the happy ending is appropriate for the story.
MARKED FOR LOVE - Anna J. Stewart
There was a lot of story in this short novella, and I only wish it had been longer! Regan took over the care of her siblings when her mother died young and her father turned to alcohol. Not only that, but she's helped keep their business afloat too. Her neighbour Brodie who has just opened a tattoo shop across the street might have caught her eye, but she just doesn't feel she has time for any relationship. Brodie is persistent though, and manages to change her mind. It's a sweet story, no overly explicit scenes but a tender romance. I really liked all the family dynamics in this one, and while we get the "I Love You' declaration, I didn't think it was needed to believe they could have a happy ending together. I will definitely look for more by this author.
UNASHAMED — Leah Braemel
Hayley has Max and Noah working hard on the house she bought, doing a renovation job for her. She's not above getting her hands dirty though and pitching in, though both Max and Noah have other dirty thoughts involving her - as she does them. I really liked all the characters in this story, and it had lots of sexy goodness as this menage trio works out the kinks of taking a one night stand and making it into a committed threesome relationship. I appreciated that the effect of their relationship on their families was not glossed over but was integral to the story. As well, while both Max and Noah have feelings for Hayley (and vice versa), the relationship between Max and Noah themselves morphs from friendship into acknowledging their true feelings for each other. This story has a lot of heart to go with the steamy scenes and was a great read.
