hot in some places and tearjerker in another

by Ashley Magruder

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review... sex heat hunger part 1 is a erotic and humorous novel all put in one and you wouldn't expect that... It had a lot of BDSM scenes which was oh my exquisite... it also had a lot of humor scenes which would make you laugh your butt off but it did have those scenes where you just wanted to cry because you wanted them to be happy together... Some novels like this is hard to read because of how good they are... But I'd love these novels they are so adventurous and so fun... I'm definitely going to keep this in my current bookshelf so I can keep rereading this over and over anytime I want to... And I'm going to recommend it to all of my friends...

Thoroughly engrossing

by Valeen

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I knew back when I read the Love, Passion and Power series that James was a character with a great story to tell. Here in his own story he's even more interesting and layered than I had suspected he was in Kendra and Justin's story.

James is having a horrible day for reasons unexplained at first, and Emma's voice at the bar they're both at, as she's on her cell being let down by her friend, is kind and sweet and sexy, and he's intrigued, and when she turns around, attracted. They spend a few hours talking, and share a cab back to their respective homes. Yes, they make out a little, but Emma isn't sure the next day if anything will come of it. Boy is she in for a surprise when he calls her the next day and asks her out. When he gives her a blunt proposition, Emma's taken aback, but very intrigued, and attracted, so she takes him up on it.

"But I'm a very busy man, and I don't have a lot of time for relationships and dating. I'm being very upfront about what kind of person I am and what kind of partner I would be. I love sex, I'm very good at it, and I would prefer to have it with someone I enjoy spending time with and respect. And I would very much like for you to be that person. I want to take care of you, spoil you, but above all else f*** your brains out. I just won't be a typical hands-on always home, always around boyfriend. Don't expect sweet text messages and phone calls every night that's just not me. I'm too busy. And I'm definitely not the boyfriend, marrying, settle down and have a family type of guy."

"But you need to know I live only in the now and won't make any promises about the future. What I can promise, though, is that when we are together, I will take care of you. I want to take you out as my date to special events, have you share my bed as often as you want to, and spend time together when it's convenient. I don't play head games and don't like labels such as boyfriend and girlfriend, but for lack of a better term, that's what we would be. However, I never share. We would be exclusive, so it's a take it or a leave it kind of thing. I'm not a good guy, and I'm not boyfriend material. We have no future. It's all about making each other feel good in the now, for as long as the arrangement works for the both of us."

Sounds very Christian Grey-ish, but have no fear, this is no 50 Shades crap. The relationship the two embark upon turns out to be quickly encompassing for both of them. Yes, very passionate, but surprisingly emotional (contrary to James' assertion about not being a "boyfriend") and it's obvious the two are quickly developing strong, very strong, feelings for the other. But, both of them carry around their own baggage, have scars, that may possibly hamper their developing relationship.

Reading their journey from "arrangement" to falling in love is a sexy, emotional experience. I can't wait to read their conclusion!

Getting To Know Each Other

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. In the previous book the reader heard James and Emma declare their love for one another and, in this one, Whitley Cox, has them exploring their relationship in more depth. Whitley's writing is addictive so that you just don't want to stop to say put the kettle on or go out for the night as I almost felt as if they were "real" in so many ways. The author's skill to be able to do that is very clever and is a rare talent. Thoroughly enjoyable episode as James tries to settle Emma's fears and we learn more about their pasts.
RECOMMENDED.

Enjoyed this one

by Anonymous

This series of books was released differently than most. There are 4 books, but books 1 & 2 together are "Love, Passion and Power" while the 3rd and 4th books are "Sex, Heat and Hunger." Book 1's story is actually finished in book 2 and should really be read together. Books 3 and 4 are set up the same way. They were originally released separately and so I've only rated this 4 stars. The writing is very good and I particularly liked how Whitley Cox used emotion to get you personally involved with the story.

No strings attached.

by Lene Norway

When James meets Emma, he is intrigued by her. He offers her a relationship based on sex with no commitments. Emma, fascinated by his proposal, takes the deal. But the more she gets to know James, the harder she falls. But is she the only one?

This is an intriguing and engrossing story filled with steamy scenes to make you hot and bothered. It is a captivating and well written plot and the protagonists feel so real.

Can't wait to read the next one.

Enjoyable romance

by Bookreview.dk

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A story about Emma and James. James goes to a pub one night, where he meets Emma. It is instant attraction. Both characters has issues from the past which they have to struggle with.
This story has it all; drama, passion, love, lust, suspense, intrigues, past issues, heartbreak, twists and lots of emotional ups and downs.
The chemistry and attraction between the main characters are well described and the steamy scenes are well written. I like the story line and it could be happening in real life. People often do let their past rule in their present. The characters develops well during the story.
Enjoyable and I like the romance.

HOT AND HEAVY

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

When James and Emma meet at a bar late one night, they both feel a spark. When James calls and offers Emma an unusual proposition, she accepts without giving it too much though, she is hot for him and figures it will be fun if nothing else. She is still insecure after breaking up with her longtime boyfriend even though he was an uptight ass. James admits upfront that he is not a nice man, and not to expect too much from him, but they cannot seem to keep their hands off of each other. They both have pasts they have to get over, but can they do it together?

If you love hot sex and romance, this is the book for you. They have great chemistry and a backstory that is realistic. Hot and heavy and well written

Sexy, Emotional

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. He's always been so cold, aloof. He asks to have dinner with her she didn't think he would be asking her to have a sex only. When Emma tells James about her past he keeps himself closed off not letting her in. Emma confused after she'd bared her soul to him. What will happen when James starts to get jealous and controlling, Emma reminds him she will not stand for it. Once both confess their love can James open his heart fully to Emma. It's a great romance and love story with some really hot sexy scenes. Strong characters and great story line.
