It’s day one of Roya Carmen’s blog tour and we’re stoked to be part of it! The Ground Rules Rewritten is out tomorrow and we have not only a review, but a sneak peek for your delectation!
Just Plain Dirty – Mirella and Gabe
He catches me staring and shoots me a playful smile. He knows exactly what I’m thinking. I walk over to the bedroom door and lock it – which is basically code for ‘let’s fuck…very quietly’.
He turns off the TV and slides to the edge of the bed, pulling me to him. “Tell me you didn’t fuck him.”
“I didn’t. I wouldn’t do that to you.”
He slides a hand under my tweed skirt. “But you wanted to. You wanted him.”
I grab his face and stare into his beautiful eyes. Words escape me.
He toys with my panties and presses his fingers against the cotton. I close my eyes. I’m already so aroused, and he’s barely touched me.
He teases. His stare is intense as he studies me intently – as if he’s trying to break through, to read my thoughts. He pulls at my panties, not taking his gaze off my face. I anticipate his next move. I want him so badly.
“Take them off,” I practically beg.
His smile is playful when he obliges. He doesn’t take his eyes off mine as he slides the cotton briefs slowly down my legs and over my feet. He kisses my knee, a soft peck.
His warm hand travels up the inside of my thigh. My breath catches when he reaches my sweet spot. He glides his fingers against my sex and I whimper at the sensation. His touch is so amazing.
His eyes close. A whisper of a growl escapes his mouth. “You’re so fucking wet, you dirty girl.”
Review **Contains spoilers if you’ve not read book 1**
Series: The Ground Rules trilogy, #2
Author: Roya Carmen
Review by: Onnica
Release date: October 20th
Basic story: After the disastrous break up between the Keates and the Hansons, Mirella has been piecing her life back together, slowly. She’s functioning once more and only thinks of Weston every other minute of the day. When he tries to re-establish contact however, she’s angry, confused, but tempted as hell.
He pursues her with the intensity only he is capable of and once Gabe reveals that he wouldn’t mind reviving their arrangement, Mirella soon finds it impossible to resist. One thing is for sure though – it’ll be on her terms this time.
Weston realises he can’t be without Mirella, but doesn’t want to upset the the status quo. Instead, he resolves they’ll stick to their rules and keep their feelings between themselves. He’ll soon learn that feelings can’t always be contained…
Why you should read it: Holy crap, this was a great sequel to The Ground Rules! Every word, every glance was loaded with heat and angst and I loved every second of it. Despite all of Mirella’s better instincts, she’s fallen under Weston’s spell once again. And it’s getting COMPLICATED! I loved the dynamic between her with her husband Gabe and also with Weston. We get to know even more about all of the characters in this book. What makes them tick, their vulnerabilities too. I cannot rave about this book enough – I started re-reading it after finishing it!
What you might hate: Hell if I know – you may not like the route the story is going down – there are some questionable decisions made and some major ‘bending’ of the rules, but for me it just made the story more complex and more exciting. I usually hate drama, this story has plenty but it’s so well written and believable that I wanted more! I also usually dislike trilogies, but I’m so glad this saga won’t end just yet. I care about all of the characters and I honestly have no idea how it’s going to go down.
Rating: 5/5 – another stunning read by Roya Carmen. I cannot wait for the finish. Hopefully it’ll be this year that I’ll get closure on this story.
The Ground Rules Re-written is out October 20th.
About the author
Romance writer, mom, book junkie. I have been writing for over ten years, finding my passion for romance in 2008. When I’m not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, painting, and writing – there is nothing I enjoy more than sitting down at my laptop and making up my own stories – and if those stories should include beautiful men, a little romance, and a few steamy scenes, all the better!
