A gorgeous former Marine with a tortured soul.

The beautiful, compassionate therapist living next door.

A meddlesome grandma determined to get them together.

I was expecting a proposal on my birthday, and I got dumped instead.

How could I have been so clueless?

Grams knew exactly how to distract me.

The “cute boy next door” who’s been helping her with yard work clearly needs a little therapy. Who better to call than her newly single therapist granddaughter?

She even fakes dementia to get me to visit, and now that I’m here she’s doing everything in her power to throw us together.

Not that I’m complaining. Ryan is the sexiest man I’ve ever met–I mean the full package, from the chiseled jaw to the massive shoulders to the rippling abs. (And yes, his package is full, and he knows exactly how to deliver it.) He makes me want to get out of my head and follow my heart. He makes me want to take chances I never thought I’d take.

He also makes me want to take my clothes off. A lot.

But he’s moody and challenging–one minute he’s an open book, and the next he’s completely closed off. He holds me like he’ll never let go, but insists he wants to be alone.

Some wounds are so deep, only love can heal them.

How can I convince him to let me try?

Synopsis4
Alyssa Summers is not the kind of girl who cheats. Sure, she isn’t in love with her fiancé, Ryan Knight, but she has no use for silly ideas like love or passion. She needs someone who can keep her from destroying herself. She needs Ryan. She’s sure of it.
Then she meets Luke Lawrence.
He’s handsome. And he’s bold—he thinks nothing of flirting with her in front of Ryan. And he’s smart, and articulate, and interested in what she has to say.
But she should be able to stop thinking about him.
So what if his big, brown eyes light up when he smiles? So what if his laugh completely disarms her? So what if his touch– even his fingertips grazing her back– makes her body hum?
She shouldn’t feel so tempted. She shouldn’t feel so desperate to know him. Luke is Ryan’s business partner, for God’s sake. She should be able to resist him.
But she can’t. She wants Luke more than she’s ever wanted anything.

Review

 

Reviewed by Shera 4.5 Stars

So Rouse ME!   I was Roused by Luke Lawrence.  Holy Motha, this man is just pure perfection and this book is a wonderful 4.5 Stars!  The storyline was great and I didn’t stop until I finished!!

Alyssa is a smart, strong beautiful girl.  She broke at one point but managed to pick herself back up, with a little help from Ryan.  She is so afraid of going back to who she was, almost not existing that she believes she won’t survive without him.  Little does she realize she isn’t really living.  See, Alyssa was an actress, the stress the expectations of one in the spotlight can be overwhelming which led to her initial fall.  Ryan picked her up, helped her heal, but he doesn’t let her live.  He micromanages every aspect of her life right down to not letting her work because she’s “not ready” and HE doesn’t want to watch her fall apart again.  She’s convinced she has her best interests at heart.  He’s only trying to help, only trying to protect her……But what does she want?

Ryan is one of those guys whose ambitions are more important than anything.  Being a partner at a law firm, you know how those guys are.  Making that extra dollar, keeping up appearances.  He knows all, be all.  He thinks he’s always right and honestly believes he has Alyssa’s best interest at heart… but doesn’t see the girl he supposedly loves being lonely, miserable and has no life left in her eyes.  Ryan is a pompous ass as you will see through the story.

Luke is Ryan’s business partner.  As soon as Luke appeared in the book I was mesmerized.  This guy is all out swoon worthy.  Gorgeous body, perfect lips, soft brown eyes.  He is immediately drawn to Alyssa, flirts outright with her in front of Ryan and doesn’t care that it gets to him.  He is convinced Alyssa is not truly in love with Ryan and is only with him because she thinks she can’t make it on her own.    He is determined to not fail another woman again.  He refuses to watch someone withdraw from life when he knows he can help fix it….

“I wouldn’t want to get in the way of true love, real love, the kind of romantic, passionate love that leaves you breathless and keeps you together for 80 years”

Oh Luke, Luke, Luke….. You hopeless romantic, I adore you….

Alyssa’s temptation to Luke is overwhelming, she knows it’s wrong.  He knows it’s wrong but they can’t help the instant attraction, not only sexually but the whole package.    Will Alyssa finally realize she can do this without Ryan?  Will she see what you will see in Luke?  I love that man; I need a Luke in my life.  So does Alyssa.

“His lips are gorgeous, not too thick or thin and soft.  They look soft at least.  And they’re probably sweet from this drink.  A little sticky from the agave.  A little salty from the rim.  What would it feel like to have those lips on mine?”

This was an amazing book, with incredible characters, which faced tough issues.  This book talks about Bulimia, the effect on one’s life and how to overcome it must be a lifelong decision.   About the toughness of the world, the harshness of NEEDING a relationship versus actually being in one and being loved.  I felt like I could connect to each character and give this a solid 4.5 Stars!

*Blog Tour and Review* Unsurpassed by Charity Parkerson

Unsurpassed1

Title: Unsurpassed

Author: Charity Parkerson

Publisher: Ellora’s Cave

Release Date: April 16, 2014

Genre: Contemporary erotic romance

Series: Book 1 in the No Rival series

Blurb

Aubree is infatuated with two men, Max and Ryan. The two former Marines have been her close friends ever since she made her first misguided attempt at joining their kickboxing classes. When the pair invites her to join them at a weekend party thrown by Drew, a famous MMA champion, she has no idea what they have in mind. After spending one hot ménage night with the pair, Aubree learns the men’s intentions are not all about her. Feeling betrayed, Aubree turns to Drew who is also tugging at her heart. She must choose between the two men who have been the center of her fantasies, and the one man who could make all her dreams come true.

Inside Scoop: This sexy tale includes a ménage and male/male encounters that may leave you wishing for an alpha male fighter of your own.

Shera’s Review 3 out of 5 Stars

Aubree is a nurse and is best friends with Max and Ryan who are both Ex-Marines.   She meets them through signing up for kickboxing lessons as they are both MMA fighters.  She trusts these boys, she WANTS these boys and fantasizes about them often, but how can she choose just one?  If only they knew how badly she wanted them.  It isn’t until they ask her to attend a charity event for the weekend until she actually sees how they want her and what their plans are for her while she is there.

At the Charity event, she meets Drew.  Drew is sexy, commanding and of course a fighter.  He is instantly drawn to Aubree at first sight and has plans for her.

“You can keep fighting and I will keep chasing you, but in the end, the same.  It will be my name you’re moaning”

He is certainly a ladies man of course, but with Aubree it’s real.  His attraction to her is different than all the other women.  As she is betrayed by her two best friends, Drew is there to pick up the pieces and will stop at nothing until he makes her his.

“You’re unlike any woman I’ve ever met before”

While the book had hot moments and some good story line I would’ve liked to see the characters developed a little more and the story to flow a little better as it was jumping all over the place.  The betrayal aspect of the story was a little unbelievable and more dialog was needed between Max and Ryan beforehand, at least to the reason they were doing what they did and what got them to that point.  I felt a majority of the book was rushed and incomplete

This book was still a good read and I give it a 3 star rating.  If the author had spent a little more time giving insight on the what and why’s and the characters were more developed I would’ve rated it higher.

Excerpt

Leaning against the cool wood of the hotel room door, she met his stare trying hard not to smile like an idiot.

“This was fun.”

Drew’s eyes flashed. “If you ask nicely, I’ll let you take me to bed.”

She shook her head at his antics. “What if I’m not feeling especially nice?”

Drew brushed his hand over her hip. “You’re right. You do feel naughty,” he agreed. Holding her stare, he bent closer, giving her time to protest his advance. The door opened at Aubree’s back. If she hadn’t hit the solid wall of Max’s chest, she might have ended up sprawled across the floor. Tilting back her head, she took note of the angry expression on Max’s face before switching her gaze back to Drew. His eyes danced with humor as he mouthed, “Denied,” and Aubree slapped her hand over her mouth to smother her giggles.

“Have a nice night, Drew.” Drew ignored Max’s snarling words.

“May I see you again?”

“I’d like that,” she answered without hesitation. Max growled. At the sound, Drew flashed him a cocky grin before giving her a wicked version of it and turning away. As soon as he moved out of the doorway, Max slammed it closed, focusing his ire on her. She’d never seen him truly angry before now. She laughed nervously.

“Are you drunk?”

“No,” she answered, incredulous. “I’ve had two glasses of champagne all night.”

“Your face is flushed.”

Aubree shrugged. “I’m happy. I had a good time.”

Max prowled toward her. The hard set of his jaw caused a flutter of desire to run through her. “Did you forget who you came here with?”

Unable to think of a single retort, she shrugged again. “I’m young and single. Why shouldn’t I enjoy myself?”

Max’s eyes flashed dangerously. His tone had a bite to it when he spoke. “You are not single.”
