5 out of 5 Licks
A woman who doesn’t have time for love…
A hot night full of hotel-destroying sex was all Kellie wanted from her client-turned-sex god. Between family and work, there isn’t room for love, just hot, sweaty lust. An arrangement for mutual gratification is exactly what Kellie wants, but every kiss, each mind-blowing orgasm twines her heart around a man she cannot have.
A man building a new life…
Quinton’s assumptions about the So Inked shop owner are turned on their head after one session under her tattoo machine. Kellie’s not the vandal he’s looking for, but she’s the woman he wants. In his bed, on the desk or under the stars, he’ll take her any way he can get her. But Quin has secrets and someone is out to destroy him. Someone who has their sights set on Kellie now.
The Harder He Falls by Sidney Bristol is a total knock out of a story with plenty of emotional punch. The writer deserves the championship belt for her HOT SEX scenes alone. From the start I was rooting for kick-ass tattoo artist Kelli and ex-MMA fighter Quin.
Kelli has a lot on her plate. She’s part-owner of a business and takes care of her grandmother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. No time to date, she makes it perfectly clear to Quin that their relationship isn’t ever going to move past the bedroom. Quin, trying to build a name for himself with his gym and become a better father, has a lot on his plate too. He’ll steal what moments with Kelli that he can.
Quin and Kelli are evenly matched from their strong personalities to their shared sexual appetites. Their chemistry is explosive and totally believable. I really loved their story! And I want more. There are a whole bunch of wonderful supporting characters in this book. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Bristol has in store for them, especially Carly.
There’s a suspense element to the story that isn’t all that suspenseful, but I really didn’t care because I was so caught up in the romance. You’ll be knocked out too.
