*****5- Perfect Ending- Stars*****
~I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review~
~this review contains spoilers from book 1~

Clearly, I'm not the man you deserve. Have I scared you away yet?”
You're kidding me, right? Believe it or not, you're the first man in two years I've wanted to be with. I don't think my feelings are that fleeting. Actually, I rather like you. Besides, I'm known for taking cocky rich boys and turning them into men.”

What a perfect ending to a spectacular series. There was just so much to love with no annoyances- plenty of steam and awesome characters, a plot that keep you trapped in it's grip, mystery and suspense, funny and dirty banter, without mis-communications, ridiculous mis-understandings or people running away from their feelings, really it was perfect and once again beautifully told. Liv Morris has officially landed on my must buy list from here on out.

Anger and fear of the future mix together, and I hold on to her as if she's my lifeline, knowing she can see me through the troubles ahead. But am I selfish enough to drag her through the public storms stirring around me? It's a question I'm not prepared to answer.

Adam's Fall picks up right where Adam's Apple leaves off.
Reeling from Simon's betrayal, dealing with the public and business backlash all while trying to heal from his gunshot wound has completely turned Adam's world upside down. His once firm and controlled grip on his life has turned to utter chaos. But through it all, Kathryn remains by his side and he still can't believe his luck. She continues to teach him the art of Tantra while helping him heal physically and emotionally.

I've put this woman through a hell of a lot since we met. I have no frame of reference for being with someone like her, either. I am pathetic and out of my league. It's a feeling I don't care for but I can't seem to shake it.

The mess left behind by Simon's actions are going to take some time and a whole lotta work to clean up, and the stress of it all starts to wear on Adam. He's barely sleeping and when he does it's interrupted by nightmares of the shooting. The only thing keeping him together is Kathryn and the way she cares for him. The more time he spends with her, the more he needs her, he can no longer imagine his life without her in it. Since he's met her, she's opened him up and changed him on a fundamental level, nothing is the same and more often than not he's questioning the way he led his life before her. She's bringing out feelings in him that he hasn't felt in years and they are completely taking him by surprise.

Did I just almost tell her I love her? All of this stress is getting to me. I haven't spoken these words to anyone since the day I left my mother's grave. But they rolled off my tongue without a thought. Maybe it was my heart, not my head, speaking?

And on top of everything else-his father, who has never even acknowledged his existence before, turns his twisted, sadistic eyes in Adam's direction. No one is safe from the wrath of Xavier Thorpe and when the dust settles who will be left standing? This time, the sting of betrayal may be too much to handle.

This was one helluva conclusion fro this series, from the very beginning your tearing through the pages wondering-What Next? The steam bumps up a to a whole new level, I mean....dayum-there was some pretty hott stuff in here. Fogged up my glasses kind of hott. The progression of Adam & Kathryn's relationship was flawless, there was no backtracking, just growing together and moving forward. I am very sad to say goodbye to these people, but I am happy with where we ended. This series is unlike anything I've ever read before and when you read as much as I do, that's hard to come by.

This woman and her crazy Tantra helped me. And dammit, I think I'm falling head over fucking heels in love with her.

I had controlled my feelings with a tight fist, and once they were set free, my icy heart thawed. Her passion drew me to her like a loth to a flame, and I can't pull away.

Author: Liv Morris
Genre: Erotic Romance 18+
Synopsis
Uniquely told in Adam's point of view. Warning: Contains erotic situations intended for readers eighteen and over.
"I take cocky, rich boys like you and teach them how to make love to women until they're barely able to mutter a word. Completely and utterly blissed. That's really what separates the men from the boys, Mr. Kingsley. Sex as an art form versus f**king for a release." - Kathryn.
Adam Kingsley reigns as the young prince of Manhattan. Everything he touches turns to gold, making him the envy of Wall Street. Women swoon at his feet, money is no object, and his killer good looks are as wicked as sin. A dangerous trifecta that allows him to possess anything or anyone he desires.
What more could a thirty-two-year-old man wish for? Maybe that his life never changes and his murky past stays far away... Sounds reasonable, yet life seldom is.
Kathryn Delcour is an alluring socialite with unique erotic tastes who helps others find true sexual fulfillment. When she suddenly appears on the New York City social scene, Adam finds this complex woman too tempting to resist. He will stop at nothing to have her, yet she is warned to stay away from him and his player ways. Kathryn tries to keep him at arm's length, but her arms may not be strong enough to hold the charismatic Adam Kingsley at bay.
The passionate lure of ancient sexual practices, a past that isn't content to remain buried and a present filled with intrigue, danger and revenge. An erotic story sweetened with secrets, seduction, and suspense.




*****5- Scorching Hott- Stars*****

~this review contains minor spoilers~

The goal in Tantra is to unit different areas into one as we, I mean, couples make love. The aim is to open our minds and spiritual side while having sex combining the two. The key word is open. Freeing oneself.”
Well.... damn that was hott. Seriously sexy as hell, but not that in your face kind of sexy- more sensuous and truly erotic. I loved that it was told from the man's POV, the way his thoughts and feeling morphed throughout the course of the book was fascinating. It was really quite an experience, sure to land Liv Morris on my favorites list for a long long time.

Karma. I have to laugh. I, of all people, know too well about karma and it's legend. However, I've chosen to operate under the old proverb of an eye for an eye. Karma requires no action and the hope of a chance. I rely on one thing in this world: my actions. I will leave nothing to chance and prefer playing the game of life with the strongest hand possible.

Adam Kingsley has worked hard to get where he is today- a self made billionaire with New York at his feet. Nobody knows about the demons of his past resulting from his mothers death or his well known father who has never acknowledged his existence. All they see is money and power with a trail of discarded women and panties in his wake.

I've burned through women like a wildfire roaring across a dry forest. Nothing has stood in my way. My passions have been all-consuming as I've indulged myself in all kinds of debauchery. I might think about settling down in a few years, maybe. But, for now, I'm content to sample the choice delights surrounding me. What single man in my shoes wouldn't say the same? Temptation is just too fucking tempting for me.

And that's all he wants them to see. He hasn't gotten close to anyone since his mother and woman are nothing more than a release to him. But Adam's carefully controlled life is starting to unravel. First a betrayal by a longtime friend/business partner, and then he meets the woman who is about to turn his world upside down-he just doesn't know it yet.

The way she looks at me is intriguing, a confidence only acquired with time and experience. Everything about her fascinates me, and her sudden appearance on the social scene bewilders me. But most importantly right now, her body ha totally aroused mine. This combination almost never happens...

Kathryn Delcour is a beautiful, sexy as sin mystery to Adam. New to the social scene, and pre-warned of his playboy ways, shes quick to put him in his place which does but intrigue him further. A little digging provides him with some surprising information on her-she an instructor in the art of Tantra which explains some of her comments to him at their initial meeting.

I wonder, Mr. Kingsley. Do the women you frolic with have a release? Do you make them come so hard they forget their name? Or did you leave them with nothing? Not even a parting gift or their dignity as you shuffle them out of your limo onto the sidewalk. The truth is all the money you possess can't make you a man.”

He has to learn more about her, just being around her is not only highly arousing, but it's stirring up feelings in him he hasn't felt in a very long time. Kathryn tries her best to keep him at a distance, she will not become one of his backseat conquests. But his alluring charms paired with his persistence is hard to resist and he is determined to explore this pull he feels to her.

I long to share my true thoughts, telling her that until I met her last night I've never felt anything more than a physical attraction towards another woman. This pull I feel towards her is something very different. I have no words to define it.

Just when he thinks his life can't spiral any further out of control, threats to his business turn to threats on his life and leaves him feeling more vulnerable than ever. The only thing keeping him grounded is Kathryn, now he just needs to convince her of that.

From the very beginning this book firmly gripped my attention. The chemistry between Adam & Kathryn was off the charts and made for some very steamy scenes. I loved that she had no problem calling him on his crap and cut right through to the heart of him. The ending was not cliffhanger per say but it was kind of abrupt, left me with lots of questions and salivating for more. The entire book was just beautifully written and I loved every minute if it, I can't believe it was the authors debut-I look forward to reading much much more from her.

While holding her I realize I've never wanted a woman to be mine before. Only mine. But I've never met a woman like Kathryn before, either. My feelings for her are foreign and unrecognizable. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I wonder if I might me falling in love with her.

 *****5- I want a massage- Stars*****
~this review contains minor spoilers~

Here I am, a teacher of tantric sex who passionately teaches clients how to experience sex in the most blissful manner possible, and I've been stuck in a sexual dessert for two years.

Well now, that was a fun and sexy romp into Kathryn's head. This was pretty short, just a handful of chapters, but you really get to know Kathryn a bit better-this poor girl is starved for some intimacy.

Perhaps it's time to cave in to my mother's demands to find the perfect man for me. How bad could a date or two be? I just need a little scratch to make this sexual itch go away. One night spent being touched by the rough hands of a real man. And a willing tongue and a well-endowed...

We get to hear firsthand all of the warnings she receives about Adam prior to their first meeting and how that only makes her more curious about him. And her first impressions when she finally comes face to face with him? Yeah, the chemistry jumps off the page. But the best part was getting to sit in on a Tantra session...
That was some seriously hott stuff. Really makes me wants to buy my Hubs some lessons on those massages. As much as I enjoyed getting into Kathryn's head, it just made me that much more anxious to get to the rest of their story.

Adam Kingsley is a sight to behold. Towering in height and muscular. Dressed to kill or make panties drop in his designer tux. I can't turn away. The pull is to strong.
