‘He looked down at the floor for a minute then looked back to meet her eyes. “I’ve never been in love, I’m fourty-four years old, and this is the first time in my life when I’ve even wondered if I might be. I’m not sure I know what love feels like.” Her breath caught in her throat, and she couldn’t look away from the tenderness, the hesitance, the growing warmth in his eyes. She was trrembling visibly now. He would have to see it. “But I think it has to feel like this. Like…like youo matter more to me than…than even I do.”‘
USA Today bestselling author Claire Kent continues her emotionally charged story of longing, betrayal, and insatiable desire as two lovers find themselves in a deadly standoff of seduction.
Kelly Watson got involved with mogul Caleb Marshall for all the wrong reasons: namely, to prove that he murdered her father twenty years ago. But Caleb is hotter than hell, the sex is mind-blowing, and Kelly’s afraid that she’s falling for him despite her chilling suspicions. Now, the more time she spends in his arms, the more she risks betraying her identity and losing her heart. The only way out is to discover the truth before Caleb figures out who she really is.
Caleb’s feelings for Kelly are taking him into uncharted territory, replacing his weakness for call girls and one-night stands with a hunger for something real. Still, the ruthless businessman in him can’t resist looking into Kelly’s background. When his investigation suggests that he’s not the only one with something to hide, Caleb is forced to decide if he can trust someone who’s been telling him lies. For the first time, Caleb understands how intimacy can be so tempting—and, in the wrong hands, so dangerous.
Darker the Release is intended for mature audiences.
This woman can write and I can read what could possibly go wrong? well noting and everything! Imagine little old me missing my train stop because I’m reading a book doesn’t seem too bad huh? Now imagine me reading this book and missing 5 stops and having to run to work and still being 25 minutes late, now it seems a little worse. Well thats exactly what happened. this book sucked me in and spat me out 5 stops late, worst part I wasn’t even mad because I fitted in another chapter on the train ride back towards the office. But that’s enough about the woes of reading on the train lets talk about the book.
I jumped over myself to get the second installment of Caleb and Kelly’s story, so much so I accidentally downloaded it onto my kindle three times! I loved the first book and needed to find out what happened. What time had let me forget was what an emotional roller coaster their story was, there is so many threads spun to create this story line it made me dizzy but most importantly it had me hooked.
I loved this book from start to finish Kelly is clearly a woman that has a lot going on in her life, the murder of her father, her mother that checked out on her not long after and now the knowledge that she could be sleeping and falling in love with the man responsible for her fathers death. This book is hot and steamy and defiantly full of darkness and sin. Caleb Marshall is certainly no saint and that’s for sure, often coming across as headstrong and always getting what he wants however when it comes to his Kelly Blossom the man seems to soften ever so slightly, a trait that had me softening to him, and the fact he was easy on the eyes definitely helped!
The only fault in the entire book was that every now and again the dialogue became rather repetitive. It was written as in real life the way real people would talk (minus the suspicion that the man your going out with may have killed your father) and I think this was the downfall. Books don’t read like in real life, characters don’t parrot back to one another. I might flounder and repeat back what someone had just said to me but Elizabeth Bennet certainly never would.
Bottom line I’m disappointed that we won’t be seeing anymore of the twosome that is Kelly Blossom and her silver fox, they aren’t an easy dreamy read like some of the others on my Books I Love list but I definitely enjoyed spending my time with them.
I’m sure you are all well used to starting a book and not even contemplating putting it down until its 4am and you realize you only have two chapters left, then reading on anyway, well this is most certainly one of those. Its not just a gushy romance, the story has some real grit and substance that had me constantly guessing what could possibly come next.
Sparks defiantly fly between these two, their story hooks you in, draws you closer and has you longing for more.
