This was a pretty interesting read for me. I’m from the south and found a certain familiarity with the sayings used in the book, as they are truly southern sayings! Things like bless your heart, son of a biscuit eater, and crappydoodle all remind me of home and they appear all over this book! It was awesome.
This book was so adorable! It started out as boys versus girls in a game of “skittles”.
Miss Cora Reeve is in love with Branwell (Bran) and has been since childhood. When he proposes marriage to her, she is hurt, assumes it’s a joke and turns him down in front of his peers.
Bran must convince Cora that he is sincere with his proposal. He has longed for her for quite some time now. He needs to prove she is not another play in his game in the correct gentlemanly way. When Bran and Cora are thrown into a game of hide and seek, it turns hot and Bran shows Cora a sensual side of him. But was it enough to make Cora believe he truly wants a marriage with her?
The book was probably no more than 60 pages and was historical in language. A nice short love story!
Deadly Dance is the ultimate Criminal Minds experience. The members of A-Tac team are made up of CIA agents masquerading as college professors. They have a super secret ops center below the campus of their university. Though they’ve been on the trail of a notorious terrorist group, they are always one step behind.
In this fifth installment of the A-Tac series, the group they’ve been after targets one of their own on a personal level. IT specialist Harrison Blake lost his twin sister to a brutal rapist and serial killer known as the Cyber Killer. Dormant for nine years, it seems the Cyber Killer is back or a close imitation of him is. Someone is picking up where he left off and making Harrison relive the horror. One problem though, these copycat killings draw out the real Cyber Killer and he’s ready to make up for lost time.
Such a great edge of my seat, suspense novel. I felt like I was literally curled up with 400 pages of CBS on Wednesday nights. What was not so great was the romance that developed between Harrison and his A-Tac colleague Hannah Marshall. They just didn’t work for me. I felt like the sex was out of place and the characters were rushed into it. Also, a little irritating was the fact that the team is supposed to be a secret. They have aliases in place for a reason. But yet they were running around their college campus interviewing witnesses; not very professor like. Other than that it was a great suspense thriller. It could easily be a two part episode on Criminal Minds.

I was expecting some kinky play, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that while yes, there’s some kink in there, all three stories also had another element in common – a threesome relationship to some degree. I love ménage stories, so I was thrilled at that discovery. Read on for a bit about each tale.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please make sure you seat backs and tray tables are in their upright and locked position and that your seatbelts are securely fastened. It’s gonna get bumpy!
…this book was completely flawless. I loved every single second of it- I never found myself getting bored, wishing a scene turned out differently, or getting frustrated with the characters- it was just that good! As a matter of fact, it isn’t usual for me to be completely enthralled from the very first page, but this book just did me in. I told myself that this wasn’t going to be a “how much I love Brian” review… but… did I mention, how much I love Brian? I mean, LADIES. The man is utter perfection. Complete deliciousness. And yes, I have to just come out and say it… I think he’s probably my favorite hero to date- there’s just absolutely no comparison when it comes to him. He’s the quintessential black sheep of the family- all tatted up, covered in piercings in places that make even me blush, tan… sexy…puuurrrfect… he takes great pride in his artistic abilities, and very few people take the time to look beneath his bad boy exterior to see a man well worth taking the time to know.
And Candace… I have to say, I just absolutely loved her. I will admit though, I was a bit disappointed a few times towards the end, with how Candace waffled back and forth between strength and insecurity, but I was able to understand her issues, and Brian more than made up for all of her confusion, and helped them both to find their happily ever after. She’s honestly, probably a new favorite heroine of mine, and as I’m sure you all know… a good heroine is hard to come by. …I just love her sweet and innocence- and if you don’t know me already, I’m a sucker for the theme revolving around the bad boy who falls for the good girl…*sigh* …it’s pretty rare for me to find a book, where I wake up in the morning totally excited to turn on my kindle and pick up right back where I left off the night before- but Rock Me had me intrigued from start to finish. This is a book where the characters and the story stays with you long after finishing. …and did I mention it has some of the steamiest scenes? *fanning myself* …now, I’m not one that finds it necessary to have tons of sex scenes throughout the entire novel- they start to feel like a constant filler, and I usually tend to become a bit bored- but not even once, did I want to hurry any love-making scene between Brian and Candace. It was just so… well… hot! (Let’s be honest, the man doesn’t lack skills in the bedroom, that’s for sure.)
This is my first book by Cherrie Lynn, and it will most definitely not be my last- she just breathes sensuality and life into her characters. Everything about this story was just so well developed, and nothing about the characters felt two-dimensional. There were many times when I even laughed out loud at some of the dialogue between the characters… the conversations, characters, and everything about the book just felt so real. The plot flowed quickly and kept my attention from the first page to the last. This is definitely now added to my “favorites” shelf, and a keeper forever! 🙂 I could go on and on when writing this review, but I think all of you catch my drift… Rock Me freaking Rocked. My. World.
