Hauberk Protection, Book 1
There’s nothing casual about this caper…
Jodi Tyler has loved and lost too many times to believe in happily ever after. That’s what makes her no-strings affair with her boss so perfect—his power in bed matches his respect for her independence. Still, when he surprises her with a ménage for her birthday, her secret thrill wars with a nagging thought: Why would he so casually share her with another man?
Even though Mark Rodriguez holds Jodi at arm’s length from his heart, her self-confidence is a turn-on he can’t resist. Inviting old college buddy and future business partner Sam into their bed for one night was supposed to set free her wildest fantasy. Instead he finds the tables turned, forced to watch while Sam brings her to the height of ecstasy.
Now, Mark’s not so sure he wants to share his treasure…
I obtained the above information from...... Leah Braemel's blog.
For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...
Omg... This is one firecracker kinda book. Non stop action throughout the whole story. No cool down period at all; which suited me just fine. Ms. Leah did a great job of bringing me to the edge of suspense, the brink of caution and then simply making me not care who or what... as long as I got the end result! If you are looking for a romantic, soft story... I have other book reviews for you to look into... But if you are looking for some hot, erotic, tie me up, spank my bottom and well... I won't use the other words... But you get my point. Then I urge you to get this book. And it is short enough for some quick satisfaction of your own! Just make sure you have *Cough* him... on speed dial!
The characters are believable enough to feel for. Jodi is working a detail on her birthday... Of all days. Then her boss Mark, who is also her secret lover, is the one that set it up. Go figure. Men! But her mind starts playing evil tricks on her due to her past. Which has not been great. Hell, who of us has had a prefect past; especially when it comes to men....
**Looks around to see who's hand is up... I didn't think so**
Anyways.... her mind gets the best of her and she thinks that Mark wants to walk away from her and their no strings attached relationship. Just the thought alone breaks her heart because like it or not.. Jodi has fallen for Mark.
Mark on the other hand... I have to give the man some props for trying to surprise Jodi on her birthday. But I will give him a swift kick in his ass for the way he went about doing it. He could have consulted with her first, that would have been nice... but he is a man after all and thought he could handle this all on his own. He made Jodi write down a list of sexual fantasies she wanted to happen... Well, he tried to make half her list come true in one night... You go Mark!
Now this is where it gets tricky.... Mark had this planned out and had been planning it for a whole month. Which made Jodi feel left out and alone.
***Hello, doesn't he know that women do like feeling left out and alone... They get the feeling they just as soon do it themselves..**
No woman likes to feel like they are second best ~ to anything. So, Jodi starts putting up a little wall to protect herself from the downfall she knows is coming sooner than later... But did she prepare her heart for what Mark had planned? Was Mark's heart prepared for what he knew he has planned?
Enter Sam... Oh Sam... Damn, this man. I think he could bring any woman to her knees simply by his voice. Which is very powerful by the way. Everything about Sam screams power, control, dominance and all things hot/wet and have to do with sex. Sam is Mark's best friend and soon to be business partner. But what Mark asks Sam to do may just put a kink in their friendship...
These three come together ((Hahahah... oh yeah, that too)) and bring forth some explosive discoveries. Friendship, partnership and relationships... Can they exist outside the confines of a sexual relationship? Does adding that something else to a relationship really strengthen the bonds or do you ruin what you had because you shared? Let's find out who's property gets kept as private as we flip (quickly) through the pages of Private Property!
And remember... Keep it Dirty, Smutty & Hussy!
