Hot, wild sex is one thing but commitment is another. Katharine Mayflower is only too willing to jump Wil Sattler’s delicious body in an orgasmic frenzy of lust but the idea of forever scares her. Sure, songs have been written about it, but Katharine isn’t sure she can keep up with the beat.
Wil has two great loves—Katharine and music. His plan is to serenade her heart and body with sex, sin and submission until the only thing she can think of is him and her need for love. Music brought them back together, desire and hunger will seal their fate.
Sad songs say so much. Sometimes the best way to explain your feelings is in song. For some people, it’s the only way.
I’ve read more than a few Amarinda Jones stories, but this one was far and away my favorite. The writing is tight and kept me right in my seat until the end. No looking away from this book. Once I closed the document, I still thought about the characters.
I have a gage for books I like. If I think about them and get a little angry, then it’s a good book—it made me emotionally engaged in the story. There were times when I wanted to smack the heroine so she’d see reason. Katharine has a good head on her shoulders, but there is some major brow beating and ego crushing going on in her life and it’s deep. How she survived is a testament to her strong will. As much as she irked me, I still liked her because she was human,
Wil...now there’s a hunk o’ man. I want one of him for myself. He’s smart, has a law degree, and did I mention he can sing? The combination is lethal and oh so hot. What I loved t he most about him, and what really made the story great was his devotion to her. He’s a typical guy and not without needs, but he never really gave up on her. That was truly sexy to read about and I felt like I was practically in her shoes.
If you want a sexy, steamy book that will warm the chilliest nights and make you squirm in your seat, then you need to read Shackle Me Not. I give it 4 cherries.
