Forever More (The Evermore Series, Book 2)
by Rachel De Lune
Genre: Erotic Romance

Hosted by: Bare Naked Words

What if you had everything you wanted within your grasp, but let it go?
Isabel Fields stands on the brink of a new life. She has the Dominant/submissive relationship she craves with the man she loves, but her past continues to haunt her.
With Isabel, Sebastian York can release the sexual Dominant he’d always tempered. He doesn’t intend to let her go, even when she bolts in panic. Together, both could experience the freedom to explore their relationship and sides of themselves previously stifled.
Their love is tested when issues of trust rising from Izzy’s past marriage and her damaged heart take their toll. They may have fallen in love, but that doesn’t guarantee it will be forever more.
Izzy and Seb have two choices: grow stronger together or be pulled apart by the past.

I sense Seb behind me. Just being near him sends a low pulse of current over my skin, making me hot with desire. His hand gently sweeps my hair to one side as he plants soft kisses on my neck. “I’ll turn the heat up. You’ve got far too many clothes on for my liking, Izzy.”
He moves away from me but I remain still. We’ve never been together as just us, without the pretence of exploring my sexuality. Will it be the same?
Why are you still standing there, sweetheart?” He turns me to face him and his eyes are dark, filled with blues and greens.
I… I wasn’t sure.”
Oh, sweet girl. I want you naked beneath me, and if you don’t hurry up and start taking clothes off…” he pauses to run his finger down the centre of my chest to the top of my jeans, “… I’m going to strip you myself.” My breath catches at his words, and the familiar ache at the bottom of my stomach makes me want to squirm. I run my palms up his chest and rest them on his shoulders.
As you wish.” I smile with my eyes, and it sparks the reaction I want. Seb pulls off my jumper and unbuttons my shirt. He peels it from my shoulders to my wrists, restraining my arms behind me. His hands move quickly, fulfilling his threat to strip me. He picks me up, carries me to the bed and pushes me back so he can pull my jeans and knickers off. I start to struggle to free my arms but he’s not undone the buttons at my shirt cuffs and I can’t free my hands.
I wanted you naked, but seeing you like this, Izzy… Keep the shirt on.”

5 – Angst fueled, Steamy and Full of Love – Stars
~this review MAY CONTAIN minor spoilers~

I miss the satisfaction from submitting to Seb. I miss the connection and the respite from my doubts. I want to fight for that as much as I want to fight Phil for taking it away from me. Will that be enough, though? Will I be enough?

This series had me by the heart since the beginning, and this book was just a reminder as to why. While both were emotional and full of drama, this one took the drive down angst road just a little bit further. Even though the first book ended in a not-so-nice cliffhanger, we got a taste of what was to come to keep us sane, and it gives you an idea of where book two was headed. Izzy's entire world is in complete disarray, she is getting hit with so many life changes, some big ones, all at once, and to say she is having some trouble adjusting is an understatement. This naturally has her in a constant state of emotional turmoil and instability. Seb, bless his heart, is sexy as hell and dominant as ever, but he also had the patience of a saint. He knew Izzy was what he wanted, and he desperately wanted to help her get through all she was going through - he just didn't know how. That's not to say he didn't have struggles of his own. The husband was an ever present thorn in his side and continued to cause problems between them. Speaking of the ass, I mean husband - I didn't like him much in the first book, and not just because he was the thing standing between Izzy and Seb, he just didn't have any redeeming qualities. My disgust for he who shall not be named reached all new heights in this book. I seriously wanted to hunt him down, cut off his balls and shove them where the sun don't shine. I have very strong, very negative feelings about that man. Luckily for Izzy, besides Seb, she had an amazing best friend in her life. She was there anytime Izzy needed her, anyway she needed her, and she was the vice of reason when Izzy felt herself drowning.
Aside from all the drama and tears, we are treated to some seriously awesome steam and a whole lotta heart. It was an incredible journey about two people who finally find that one person they can just be themselves with, and a love that can never be denied. The smokin hott sex was the wicked icing on the cake.

You are more than enough for me, Isabel. You are everything that I've ever wanted. You submit beautifully to me. You're beautiful and sexy. You challenge and inspire me. I love you. We're finding our own way, our story, remember.

MORE (The Evermore Series, Book 1) 

Miserable and dejected in her marriage, Isabel Fields encounters a stranger in a bar promising an opportunity to change her life. Nonetheless, she must make a decision she thought was reserved for other women.
Sexual dominant, Sebastian York, specializes in igniting passion in his lovers, but women always come and go, and he’s never had a woman to call his own.
Leading Izzy, a natural submissive, on a journey of sexual awakening, their casual arrangement soon grows too confining. Seb satisfies everything Izzy has craved and she instinctively bows to his dominant personality, fulfilling his every desire.
Their casual arrangement ignites Isabel’s long-buried passion and touches her heart, but Izzy struggles with the emotional turmoil that plagues her soul.
Sacrifices will have to be made by both, putting their love to the test. Izzy stands to lose the marriage she dedicated years of her life to, but has a chance to gain a relationship she's always longed for. All depends on whether Sebastian proves to be the love of Izzy’s life, or leaves her wanting more…

He’s not going to explain a freaking thing to me, I think as his mouth settles into a firm line. Asher’s eyes appear half pissed off and half sad. He looks like he’s struggling with something, but he’s not saying anything. I haven’t spent that much time with Asher, but I can tell getting words out of him will take some engine grease and possibly a crowbar.
I think I’d rather skip the part where he has to let me down slow.
“Okay. We’ll talk about it later,” I concede with a shrug and shake of my head.
In the grand scheme of things, I have a pretty good idea of what he’ll say. I mean, honestly? Who would pick a girl like me? I’m not sure how this whole Wraith mating stuff goes, but if the man has a choice, he has to prefer a better crop than me.
I don’t need to be worrying about this now anyway. So what if I felt a connection to the first man probably ever? So what if I clung to him like a monkey on a tree? So what if I feel safe with him, a feeling I haven’t had in a very long time? So freaking what? I don’t deserve a man like him. After the lives I’ve taken... happiness just isn’t in the cards for me.
“I'm all right. It’s not going to hurt. I didn’t even notice it was dislocated before now. It’ll get popped back in, I’ll be able to heal and walk. Win-win. You can go. I’ll be fine,” I tell him, my voice sounding almost dead even to my ears. I need to cut this off as soon as possible. His face tells me he is reluctant, but he needs to go.
“Come on Asher,” Evan says at his elbow, and she escorts him from the room, practically dragging him behind her up the stairs.
My eyes are on the stairs long after he disappears from my sight. In those moments, I take the time to shore up my heart. I don’t need to rely on Asher. I shouldn’t even rely on Aurelia or Rhys or prey on the hospitality of the Wraiths.
I should do the right thing. For once, I should do what I’ve always needed to do. But I need to be able to walk to do it.

Scattered Ashes (Ashes to Ashes #1)

Murder. Betrayal. Treason. Take your pick; he’s guilty of them all. On the path of redemption, he must beg for forgiveness from the one person he fought to save - the woman he has always loved. 

Thrown together in the trenches of war, they must work as a team to stop a monstrous puppet master from pulling their strings.

Ashes, ashes. We all fall down.
Get ready to burn.
