Mr. Blackstone is back and he is
as charming and sexy as ever.The
continuing love story of Ethan and Brynne is a scorching hot read filled with
romance, angst, passion and answers to questions that left me dangling at the
end of “Eyes Wide Open”.
Ethan, being a true Alpha, holds
nothing back in “Rare and Precious Things”.From a fairytale wedding night, to a beautiful honeymoon, Ethan proves
to be the most romantic husband every woman dreams of.
As a soon to be dad, Ethan shows
Brynne his sweet, gentle side.How he
constantly tends to her every need while still the ever-persistent
dirty talker, is adorable. All that, and oozing even more sensuality than ever
before, is all Brynne needs to help her through one of the most bitter-sweet
times of her life.Still mourning the
violent passing of her father, as well as being kidnapped by a crazed lunatic,
should have Brynne spinning out of control.But it is Ethan’s love and looking forward to the life and family they
are building together, which keeps her grounded. It is here where her character
grows stronger, thanks to Ethan’s support. In exchange, Brynne eases the
darkness that threatens to consume Ethan.These two broken souls heal one another.
There are some nefarious characters,
which re-enter their lives and try to disrupt Byrnne and Ethan’s
happiness.They mainly focus on Byrnne
and the ugliness she had suffered in the past. But, with her husband’s
assistance, she becomes stronger, more powerful and more in control of her
emotions.Her faith in their love and
marriage gives her the courage to move forward.
However, Ethan is facing a more
difficult time handling the ghosts from his past. His nightmares are becoming
worse and more frequent.The burden of
carrying so much guilt, for events that were out of his control, is becoming
too much for Ethan to bear. It is Brynne’s love that helps him to cope with all the darkness that consumes his soul, and she becomes
In the hours of the darkest kind, Brynne has ever been my
light. My lover who saw inside my battered soul and freed me.
My beautiful girl let me know, and
showed me, yet again, what a rarity I possessed in her love, as she had from
the very first. Rare.
Brynne’s love was something rare—a gift.
A precious gift I’d been given, by some divine twist of fate that had brought
her into my world…and changed everything about me. About how I saw things,
about what I dreamed for the future, about my capacity to move beyond the
shadows of my past. Brynne’s love changed absolutely everything.
Of course there is drama.A heartless mother-in-law, friends from the
past that serve as a reminder of all his guilt and a few highly intense moments,
are just some of the bumps in the road these happy honeymooners face.But, all’s well that ends well for Ethan and
Brynne and their future together.So
happy to see this couple grow and support one
another.Their love is strong and their
passion is all consuming.Ethan is more
erotic than ever. And if you want to know if the baby is a boy or a girl, I
highly recommend you to pick up a copy of “Rare and Precious Things”
Spencer Shrike.... I
went from wanting to kick your ass hard to loving you dearly.
Strike’s life is
somewhat… difficult.He is being pulled
in different directions by forces looking to destroy him. From chasing
competitors who are trying to annihilate his custom bike business, to the law
breathing down his neck for his past indiscretions, to a reality show invading
his privacy, Spenser is forced to distance himself from the one true person
that can offer him everything he wants and needs. That one special girl is his “bombshell”, the
one and only, Veronica Vaughn.
And it is his love for Ronnie, the need to
protect her from all the fallout surrounding him that has him pushing her as
far away from him as possible.But
Spencer cannot longer take life with out Ronnie, so he is prepared to do what
ever is necessary to keep her within his grasp.
“The day I saw you, my life started. My chest swelled with
this feeling. A feeling I’d never felt
Spencer You tricky
devil - things with you are NOT what they seem. He is a true romantic hero with
a dirty mind and a dirty mouth. Now, I just have to wait for “GUNS” to learn more
about your angst filled life.
