synopsis

She’s his boss. He doesn’t care. This office isn’t big enough for the two of them…

When Rory Clarke ends up hiring the guy she spent one steamy night with to be her administrative assistant, she’s determined to keep things professional.

Lucas Blaine has other plans for her. He wants Rory, and it’s hard to resist his stunning blue eyes, chin dimple and the way he fills out a suit. Everywhere she looks, there he is, giving her a panty-melting smile and pulling her away for the most amazing (and satisfying) sex she’s ever had in her life.

What starts off as one sexual encounter turns into multiple trysts in and out of the office and the lines she’d tried to draw so carefully are blurring. But the closer they get, the more Rory realizes that there are things about Lucas she doesn’t know, things he’s hiding from her. She’ll have to decide if she can surrender to her feelings or get out while she still can.

myreview

 

Sweet Surrendering is pretty quick read as it kept me entertained and I even laughed aloud a few times. And, while the book was clever, a little steamy, and emotional there were parts that dragged on and there were some editing issues that I could not overlook. .The storyline is quite simple so it is a perfect read if you simply want an escape from reality for a few hours!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Sweet Surrendering in exchange for an honest review.

myreview

 

If you are looking for a light, fun read then this is the book for you! The story seemed rushed, but it has the potential to be much better. I was not particularly drawn to it nor would I add it to my “read again” list, but Forbidden Forever did provide me with some entertainment for an afternoon. It deals with a sensitive subject that many women struggle with so I commend the author for that.

synopsis
 
Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.playlist

Music is so important to my writing process. I create a full playlist for every book I write, and I listen to it over and over and over again while drafting. It keeps me inspired, keeps me in the characters minds, and it often gives me ideas for scenes, interactions, and even dialogue.

For Seven Day Fiancé, our couple travels to Cajun country, and I found some great inspiration in country music. From the setting, to the story telling that so many of my favorite country songs provide, they just “fit” the storyline well. But a few surprises snuck in, too.

 

  • I’m Too Sexy by Right Said Fred: This actually plays within the story, in a particular scene that is one of my absolute favorites, and from now on, I will always picture a shirtless disgruntled Cane Robicheaux when I hear this song. (he he) Read the book and you’ll see why.

 

  • Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield:            This is Angelle’s theme song. She’s starting life over, reaching out to prove she’s more than the girl she was, and she has a one-word tattoo branded on her wrist to remind her of just that… Chance.

 

  • I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz:   Truthfully, I think just about every romance novel that’s published in the last year had this as inspiration, but that doesn’t make it apply any less here. This was so important in the book that our musician hero almost sang it at one point. Instead, I went with what I believe is a much cooler alternative. But yeah, this song fits really well.

 

  • Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls:             This is sort of Cane’s theme song. The world sees him as the town bad boy/player. And in some ways, he is. But there’s much more to our tattooed bartender than meets the eye.

Rachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, where she watched soap operas with her grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading her mama’s favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up way too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.
 
When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, she homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches reality television with her amazing husband. Taste The Heat is her adult romance debut. She’s the author of MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY and A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES. She loves hearing from readers! Find her atwww.RachelHarrisWrites.com.
