Review of Don't Let Him Go (I Want Morrison Book 1) by Kay Harris


Kay Harris delivers a new novel that kicks off a brand new series of quick romances that take you and the characters on a roller coaster ride of emotion. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. You'll also find affiliate links here, which may help me earn a few extra pennies in case you choose to make a purchase through them. Be sure to check out the excerpt and my review and then enter the giveaway below. If you comment, Kay will respond. And following the tour gives you plenty more chances to win!





Don't Let Him Go

Candace Gleason passed the bar, landed a great job, and is making a killer salary--basically, all of her dreams are coming true. Until she’s assigned to keep the boss’s petulant son out of trouble.

Jack Morrison is the rebellious black sheep of a mighty real estate family. He runs a nonprofit whose mission is to save poor people from evil corporations, like the one his own family owns. He is obnoxious, ridiculously charming, and insanely hot. He is the bane of Candace’s very existence.

Sparks fly from the moment they meet. Candace suddenly has more to worry about than keeping Jack out of jail. She has to keep him out of her heart.




Read an excerpt:
I folded my arms across my chest and glared at Jack as he moseyed into the room. “You ambushed me.”

Jack came to a stop a few feet away and nodded. “I did.”

“That’s it?” I spread my arms out and leaned forward. My voice rose despite my effort to control it. “That’s all you have to say?”

“What do you want me to say? You’re smart. You can see what I did back there. I used you for my own gain.”

“You’re a prick!”

“I’m not surprised you feel that way. But I am sorry you had to get caught in the crossfire.” He moved to the couch and took a seat in the middle of it, purposefully giving me the high ground.

He slung his arms over the back of the couch casually, making him look like an arrogant ass. And that is exactly what I thought of him at that moment. So I called him on his supposed apology. “Are you?”

“Yes, I am. But you’re not innocent, Candie. You put yourself in this position by going to work for Morrison.”

“It’s Candace!” I shouted, on the edge of insanity.

He didn’t respond. He just looked at me with that infuriatingly handsome face and waited, an amused grin dancing on his face.

**My thoughts**

Yes, this is another one of those stories where the main character falls head over heels for the rich leading man and they tumble into a quick and intense romance. But what is different this time, to me, is the growth that the two characters go through as the story progresses. Candace grew up with a couple of hippies always fighting the good fight, but always wanted to live the rich, lavish life. Jack grew up in that rich, lavish life, and preferred to be the one fighting the good fight. It's these opposite ideals in life that actually make them perfectly compatible in every way because they complement each other so well. It turns out they actually want the same things out of life, only use different tactics to get there. And they need each other to pull it off.

The fire in their relationship is based on their individual intensities. That intensity fuels the fire more and more, creating a passion for love and each other, but also a passion in their own lives and what they do. Another thing I liked about this story is how that passion contributes to events over time that prevent them from having a perfect storybook romance. They have one huge defining battle and a then a couple more sprinkled along the way. That part gives more of a sense of realism in their relationship.

I will admit that I still do have a hard time with these super intense, quick romances. And I'm not sure if I could be so forgiving so quickly for what appears to be a huge betrayal. Nevertheless, this book was an enjoyable way to spend a cold winter's evening. It's very clear that there is to be another book in  the series, thanks to a cliffhanger in the epilogue. But fear not, cliffhanger haters. The main story is clearly resolved and this was just meant as a bit of a teaser of what is to come should you decide to continue with the series. You should feel fulfilled.

Read an excerpt from The Truth Inside by Trish Edmisten and enter the giveaway!


Please note that affiliate links are present within this post. Should you make a purchase through one, I may earn a small commission to help support my websites.




The Truth Inside


For as long as he can remember, Nate’s dreamed of being an MMA fighter. Nothing is going to stand in his way and no one is going to distract him. Everything is going according to plan when Natalie comes along. Even though he wasn’t looking for love, Nate can’t help falling fast and hard. Smart, sweet and supportive, she seems too good to be true, but it’s actually the other way around. Nate isn’t good enough for her, and he’s keeping a secret that will change everything between them. One day, she’ll see the truth inside of him. Until then, Nate’s determined to keep Natalie in his life for as long as he can.



http://amzn.to/2BnGLuB


Read an excerpt:
Scooting forward until their knees touched, Natalie reached up and framed his face with her hands. “It doesn’t change anything between us, Nate.”

“It changes everything.”

“The only thing that changes is now I know. That’s it, nothing else.”

“It really doesn’t matter to you?”

Nate still looked doubtful, but she wasn’t surprised. Having spent his whole life being confused by and ridiculed for what he was, she knew better than to expect it to be easy to convince him it wasn’t a deal breaker.

“It matters, but it doesn’t change the way I feel about you.”

A hint of wonder sparked in his eyes. “How is that possible?”

“Would it matter to you if I’d been born male?”

“No, but that’s different.”

“It’s really not. I fell in love with who you are, not what you are. You may have been born a female, but you’re not. You never have been.”

“I still have ”

Natalie pressed a finger to his lips, cutting off his words. “What’s between your legs doesn’t make a difference to me. It isn’t what I fell in love with.”

Tears glistened in his eyes as he took a shaky breath. “You say that now, but you haven’t seen what’s under my clothes.”

“I don’t have to see what’s under your clothes to decide how I feel about you. The only parts of your body I care about are the parts that make you who you are,” Natalie said softly. “Your heart and your mind are what matters.”

Racing the Tide


Racing the Tide, Book one in the TETRAD Group series.

Cole and Gabby, undercover in Vancouver’s Chinatown, have no time for the attraction developing between them. Not when the race is on to rescue a kidnap victim before time runs out.

My name is Cole McClintock. My new job with the TETRAD Group has me working with a woman that’s gotten me so tied up in unfuckingbelievable knots that I’m a certifiable nut job. I mean, just look at her. The woman is beyond hot with those big doe eyes and luscious curves that makes me want to possess every single inch of her.

One look at Cole McClintock and knew I should stay right the fuck away from him. My name is Gabriella Banks and I’d be the first to admit I’m complicated, but at least my job as a new operative with The TETRAD Group keeps me too busy to dwell on my lack of a sex life. I never thought I’d be admitting this, but my strong-woman exterior hides a craving for something more—something only Cole can provide…

Read an excerpt:
“Hey, you in there or in La La Land? Just one more, sis, okay? I need a little more time to catch that new guy’s eye,” Celine stage-whispered in her ear. She nodded in the direction of a man striding toward them. He sat at an empty table less than eight feet away. Hmm. He looked like the kind of guy who thought he was every woman’s fantasy, his polished yet scruffy appearance a ploy at pretending he didn’t care. She’d bet he used one of those special razors that kept his beard that precise length. No one was that good-looking without doing a little something.

A big, wide-shouldered man, he wasn’t dressed like the rest of the patrons, having opted for a black T-shirt and faded blue jeans. He spoke to the waitress in a gravelly voice, asking about takeout, and she handed him a menu. He glanced over, checking both of them out then coming back to lock eyes with her for that split second that men and women share in bars.

Only this time, the effect was paralyzing. His eyes were whiskey-brown and shadowed. And they were hard. Flint hard. Every line of muscle in his handsome face was tight and tense. Worry or something more disturbing? The corner of his mouth twitched into a semblance of a smile that didn’t reached his eyes. The air between them crackled with tension like a direct hit from a lightning bolt. What the hell? Her lips parting, she took a sharp intake of breath, steadying herself. Then he looked away, breaking eye contact. She swallowed hard. Whoa. What just happened?

“What? That pretty boy?” Gabby said, whispering into her sister’s ear, pretending indifference. She twisted in the chair, facing another direction. She’d seen way too much of what men were capable to ever fall for someone who looked that full of himself. Or that good.

First Impressions


Michael:

Two years ago I made a mistake, a big one, and then I threw in another couple just for good measure. I screwed up my life big time but I made it through. I was lucky.

Then I was given the opportunity for a fresh start. Two years in Auckland, NZ, ‘The City of Sails’. Away from the LA gossip, a chance to breathe, to get my life back together. 


I grabbed it and packed my new set of golden rules with me.

I don’t do relationships.
I don’t do commitment.
I don’t do white picket fences.

And I especially don’t do arrogant, holier-than-thou, smoking hot K9 officers who walk into my ER and rock my world.

Josh:


The only thing I know for certain about Dr. Michael Oliver is the guy is an arrogant, untrustworthy player, and I’d barely survived the last one of those in my life. Once was more than enough. 

The man might be gorgeous but my eleven-year-old daughter takes number one priority and I won’t risk her being hurt, again. I’m a solo dad, a K9 cop and a son to pain in the ass, bigoted parents.

I don’t have time for games.
I don’t have time for taking chances.
I don’t have time for more complications in my life.

And I sure as hell don’t have time for the infuriating Dr. Michael Oliver, however damn sexy he is.

Read an excerpt:
Josh was fuming. Fast pitch was one of the few activities he got to enjoy on his own and now he had to put up with Michael freaking Oliver. Arriving at Kendrick’s he’d immediately collared Mark at the bar as the guy was buying a round.

“What the hell, man? Whose idea was it to invite him?”

His friend plastered a huge grin on his face and held up his hands in surrender. “Nothing to do with me, mate. Boss man just asked me to deliver him.”

“And you couldn’t think of any reason that wouldn’t be a good idea?”

“What was I going to say?” Mark studied his friend. “And honestly, he seems a good guy and he plays a solid game.”

“I don’t give a flying fuck if he plays like Nathan Nukunuku, he’s an asshole.”

“Funny, that’s what he called you.”

“Wait. He called me an asshole?”

Mark snorted. “Lighten up, Josh. Anyone would think you actually liked the guy.”

“Fuck off.”

Mark whacked him on the back of his head.

“Ow,” Josh protested.

“Suck it up. You deserved it. So, the guy was cruising, so what? Oh. My. God. What a scandal. And he even got lucky with a gorgeous young man, well good for him. It’s not a crime. And besides, he’s hot. And he hit on you. I would think that was reassuring, that you haven’t lost it. You’re both obviously hot for each other.”

“I’m a father of an eleven-year-old girl.”

“And that came with getting your dick cut off, did it?”

“You wouldn’t understand,” Josh dismissed the comment.

In a rowboat. Trapped. Up for ransom. My captor’s name is Molly, and Molly is having much too much fun eyeing me and tormenting me— a cat toying with a mouse. The difficulty is that, after the emptiness of my aristocratic existence, I’m not absolutely averse to being played with.
