Editorial Reviews


"Sexy with a capital S. Out of Bounds is a hot novel, packed with steam and excitement." - Long and Short Reviews

"A really good story with a wonderful ending, if you're in the mood for lots of sex in a book then this is the book for you! " - Smut Fanatic

"The romance is very organic. The setup for the "best friends" story is just as tantalizing as the central romance." - RT Book Reviews

"This is definitely a book that is perfect for a weekend escape from the hum-drum of cubicle life. The heat factor, not to mention the couple's stamina, is off the charts." - Romancing the Book

Really Hot! Love the hero in this book; Tarak is so alpha male ***shivers*** so possessive and domineering. Love this author's books. I've been reading her historical romance novels for a while now, written under the name of Mary Wine, and I absolutely love every one of them. She creates proud and strong female characters and savagely gentle heroes. I Haven't read one single of her books where I dislike any of them, and this was no different. Plus, this lady can write some steamy love scenes.

I'm guessing there will be another book about Celeste and Nartan. Hope I'm correct. I'll be on the lookout for more, and will sure read it as soon as is out.

Liked this overall. If the story had been fleshed out more would have held my attention more. Did not have a problem putting the story down to do something else. Seemed the two main characters were always angry, fighting against their attraction. Really bad when you are skimming through the "hot" parts of the story. Would have liked to see more of their softer sides after all the angst was resolved. Very abrupt and short HEA. Maybe we'll see more of them in Celeste and Natran's story.

What an awesomely sexy read!
If you like your heroes to be domineering in the most delicious way Dawn Ryder has the man for you.
Tarak Nektosha is a 'my way or the highway' man. He has earned his wealth through extremely hard work. The difficulties he has faced in his life have only served to make him more intense and focused. When he meets Sabra Donovan he really doesn't want to be drawn to her. He wants to get on, get off and get out. Women are only there to sate his physical needs and there really is no other use for them and they cannot be trusted.
Sabra, also, has no intention of getting involved with Tarak. Not only does he have a use her and lose her attitude towards the female sex, but even worse... he's her boss!
The two are absolutely drawn together in a scorchingly hot way. Tarak pulls out all the stops to get to Sabra and feels an overwhelming need to possess her. Though they both fight the attraction you have to know that they are going to give in.
And boy, do they.
Over and over... and it is scrumptious.
I feel that both character's personalities and motivations were deftly explored in such a way that you really understood what they felt and the actions they took.
If I had one smallest wish, it would be that the ending wouldn't have come so quickly. I felt that there could have been a little more interaction between Tarak and Sabra once they came to the complete realization of what their relationship was. A more involved epilogue would have suited this story nicely.
Overall, a great couple hours of mind vacation with two strong willed people who were great fun to observe as they fought the inevitable.
I can only hope that there will be a follow up book as there were several other highly intriguing characters that I wouldn't mind seeing more of.

Out of Bounds was an enjoyable read and the first book that I have read by Dawn Ryder. There's plenty of steamy sexiness and the story is a good one. One of the things that I enjoyed the most about this story is the fact that Sabra is no shy, demure, blushing woman who doesn't know her own mind. Despite wanting to move forward with her career, Sabra recognized that her attraction to Tarak could lead to something even more fulfilling. Although both Tarak and Sabra know that office romances, especially between employer and employee are often disastrous they decide to take a risk. The possible negative consequences for Sabra leads to Tarak offering Sabra a compromise that she just couldn't turn down.

There were some parts of the book that seemed a little disjointed and some scenes that I just didn't like. There were some references to Tarak's Apache heritage that I didn't particularly like and thought could have been left out all together. For example, Sabra tells Tarak "The first time I saw you, I thought you should be wearing a headband, like your ancestors." As well as when Sabra says that Tarak looks "like an echo from the last century." Now I know that was supposed to be her letting Tarak know how attractive he is to her, but that just didn't work for me. I half expected her to ask him to don a loin cloth and hold a tomahawk. That was just not sexy.

The secondary characters in Out of Bounds, namely Celeste and Nartan are interesting and are surely being set up for book 2. Celeste is Sabra's best friend who has survived an awful marriage and is gun shy when it comes to men, especially men with money. While Nartan is Tarak's best friend who will surely provide a challenge for the cautious Celeste. I will definitely be looking for their story down the line.

Sabra has just started working for the Nektosha company. She started in a little cubicle on the lower floors, but she's planning on one day working upstairs with the big guys.
Now it's the weekend and she's supposed to be having a good time at the beach with her boyfriend, but it seems he's having a good time with a friend of theirs.
Not all too sad about the break-up, she's about to leave for home, when her work-phone rings.
She's being summoned to a fancy hotel to her company's unveiling of the new series of Off-Road vehicles. Not an event such a low-level employee would normally be invited to, BUT all the VPs are stranded in Alaska and it's up to her to represent the company.
The boss will be there too of course. Tarak Nektosha.
She has never met the guy.

But as soon as she hears this sexy dark voice she knows she's in trouble.

Because as it turns out that voice belongs to none other than boss-man.
He just sent his 'girlfriend' packing because she looked to cheap for a business event. Nice.
He shouldn't have started to mix his private and business lives.
As soon as he sees Sabra he's extremely intrigued though and he grabs her to help him with the presentation.
Sabra feels like a crushing teenage girl in Tarak's presence.
He's so sexy and masculine and dark and sexy and grrr...

After a very successful night Tarak doesn't want to see Sabra leave, but she doesn't accept his invitation into his suite.

But he's not one to give up ☺

The next morning she again proves herself in a meeting and Tarak moves her up to his floor and into her own office.

But Sabra doesn't want personal 'things' to get in the way of her professional life.
