Book Tour Review & Giveaway ~ throb by Vi Keeland

A Contemporary Romance novel
New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Vi Keeland
Meet Cooper & Kate!

The rules:
No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?
Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.
Cooper – behind closed doors.

You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet. Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them. When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen. You know why? Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good. Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically. Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute. So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy. Now let’s put the rest of this behind us. Do you want to be with me tonight?”
After that prelude, I nod my head fast. I’m no fool. Who wouldn’t?

~this review may contain minor spoilers~

Smoldering eyes staring intently into mine, mixed with a hard, muscular body just inches away, make it easy to forget that he's off limits. Banned. Forbidden. A complete violation of the rules of my contract. It only makes me want him more.

When she signed the contract, all she was thinking about was how much her family needed the prize money. There were rules that HAD to be followed, quite a few actually but it all boiled down to -no relationships or sex outside of the game, and no discussing the contents of the contract. Seemed simple enough, especially considering she has been on a self-imposed hiatus for more than a year now. But that was before she met him. She wasn't counting on the dirty-talking tycoon that was about to flip her world on end or how hard it would be to say no to him... and she definitely wasn't counting on him not taking no for an answer or learning about the devil she made a deal with.

Deep down I think I do blame her, maybe not for how the words were delivered tonight, but for being able to give us a clean start. It's selfish, I know it is, I've seen the reason she's doing what she's doing, but I want her without qualifiers. Sneaking around, hiding something I feel the urge to publicly claim as mine, isn't in me.

In the words of Cooper himself-Who can resist watching a car accident waiting to happen? That pretty much sums up this book-you know it's going to be messy, you know your gonna get pissed, you know it won't be pretty, but you just can't look away. It was a unique concept, which I can truly appreciate with as many books as I read, and the synopsis turns out to be a pretty big tease in no way warning you what is about to happen-and neither will I. I'm glad I didn't see it coming, there were quite a few times the author managed to surprise me and it made the read that much more exhilarating. Instead, I'm gonna share my feelings on some of the characters.
Cooper: that man was actually pretty perfect. He embraced everything I love about a hott Alpha male-sexy, possessive, dirty, just a touch on this side of rough in the bedroom but underneath his hard shell was a sweet, caring man who is willing to do anything for those he cares about. He also has the patience of a saint and is all about control and order. It doesn't happen very often (girl-power and all) but I actually found myself siding with him for most of the book. The man stuck around and put up with a helluva lot more than I could have handled.
Kate: I can honestly say I spent a lot of my time on the fence with this girl. As a person, I loved her. She was sweet and funny, sassy and determined. Now for the no-so-lovable parts: she definitely came across as a hypocrite at times with her reactions to other people in Cooper's life, considering her current situation. I understood the reasons behind her decisions, but that didn't really help to alleviate my frustrations with her.
Flynn: I wanted to hate this guy... but just couldn't. He really was an amazing dude-sweet, funny, flirty, sexy and caring-he did nothing wrong other than get in my way, even if he didn't realize it.
Sadie: EVERYONE should have a best friend like her. She was hilarious, shamelessly horny, and completely loyal. Always there with a shoulder when needed and a good threat when necessary.
Miles: Asshat. Nuff' said.
This book kept my attention right from the start, every page added to the story and it all played into the end result-we weren't bogged down with a bunch of filler just to make the book longer. As much as it drove me insane at times, I really did love the journey and would do it again in a heartbeat. Surprisingly, this was the first book I ever read by Vi but I can guareentee it won't be the last. She flew to the top of my One-Click-Addiction List one blush, giggle & frustrated huff at a time and I cannot wait to see what she brings us next.

I want this all the time. Dance with you, have you on my arm at events, that carefree smile on your face. I didn't even realize it was what I was missing, until I found you. I want this. I need this.”
