“This has got to be Kristen Ashley’s hottest book to date!” ~ Under the Covers

Quick, someone grab a fan and cool me down! This has got to be Kristen Ashley’s hottest book to date! I swear I am still blushing (and maybe panting a little) from reading it. The sexy times may take some time to arrive but when they do hold on to your hats and grab a spare pair of knickers; you’re going to need them.

If you have ever read a Kristen Ashley book, then you will know exactly what to expect with Deacon the heroes may be a little rougher in her Unfinished Heroes series and the books more erotic, but you are still left with Ashley’s highly addictive combination of tough alpha hero, with more muscles and testosterone than a football locker room and an intense romance where the heroine can’t help but be swept off her feet. And what girl could resist being swept off her feet by Deacon? He has made an appearance in Ashley’s previous books and his back story proved both sadder and more interesting than I expected. I really enjoyed reading and seeing him get his well deserved happy ending with Cassidy, the heroine.

But, I did find this book to be fairly slow, it definitely isn’t for you if you want something snappy and fast paced, the first part of the book did drag along and then it seemed as soon as it picked up the pace I had reached the end and they were having a very steamy epilogue that had me eyes fixed on the screen and my hand reaching for….a glass of ice water.

Another fantastic book from Kristen Ashley, I really am a KA Addict and cannot WAIT for whatever she wants to release next.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

  1. Love her series. I started with the Mystery Men series and from there never got any housework done for a month. I am so looking forward to this book but didn’t like the review part where it says this book is slow moving.however, not a problem will read this in no time once it gets out.

  2. I’m definitely a KA addict. Everything she writes is awesome and I expect nothing less than what your review states. A hot alpha male and a feisty heroine extreme situations. All the makings of a great KA book. Looking forward to reading it.

  3. I am also a KA junkie…good review, but am also a little dismayed at the slow comment…oh well, reviews don’t stop me from reading an author I adore…so I will be going for it! 🙂

  4. Love all hints Kristen Ashley! Even have one of her Fortnums T-shirts and always get compliments. Looking forward to reading this.

  5. I liked the review! I also am a KA fan and I am sure I will love it, however it disturbs me to hear it’s slow paced considering its a book under 300 pages, kind of on the short side for her but I am a fan so I m sure it will rock!!!!!!!!

  6. I LOVE KA’s books !!!!!!!!!! I already own all the mystery men series and 2 of the Chaos books that are out right now. I can’t wait for Deacon to hit the stores. I much prefer hard copy books to e books. I still love the feel of a book in my hands! KA rocks tho she is awesome!!!!! Keep up the good work girl you rock !!!
