Release day blitz & 4* review - Ignite by Elena M Reyes

Add to Goodreads
Teasing Hands: The hands kneading my flesh into submission are strong, yet gentle. Rough yet tender. His talented fingers dig deep into my naked flesh applying the perfect amount of pressure, bending me to his will. "Undress for me."

Taunting Lips: Her body was my greatest damnation. I craved her and the way she came alive beneath my fingers. The way she’d let me force my will upon her tender flesh, so breakable and trusting—open to all I could teach her. “I hate that I love you.”

Ignite Teaser 1
I didn’t like it.
How the fuck was I supposed to sleep while she traveled with her team up to Central Florida for an away game? The team was set to play the Gators next week and would stay through the weekend; three entire days without her warmth.
Those sweet smiles in the morning that always led to my devouring every inch of her tight body. To hearing her tiny whimpers of pleasure that always caused my heart to speed up. My Gatita’s touch rendered me her slave, and I fucking enjoyed every second under her control.
And now, I’d be without for a few days.
“Motherfuck.” I ran an agitated hand through my hair and tugged.
“What’s wrong?” Amanda wrapped her arms around me from behind. Her chin nestled between my shoulder blades in between soft kisses. “Was Dad pissed about my moving in? You told him, right?”
“No, but he knows.” I shrugged and turned around in her embrace to face her. “Told me as much the night of your game.”
Her brow rose and her adorable nose scrunched up. “You scared? If you can’t handle him…”
Palming her fleshy rear, I squeezed hard, causing her to squeak. “Repeat that?” Her mouth quirked up at the corner a second before her lips parted, but before she could utter a single syllable, I tossed her over my shoulder.
“Camden!” She giggled, her tiny fists pounding against my back. My naughty little Gatita. “What are you doing?”
“I’m showing you my fear.” The hand not holding her thighs in place spanked her. Once. Twice. Alternating between each cheek and all the while she squirmed in my hold. “See how I’m shaking?”
“Quit laughing, you jerk.” Her mock stern voice only caused me to laugh harder. Amanda was tussled a bit from my laughter and yelped. I had to hold myself up with one arm against the wall just outside my bedroom so that I wouldn’t drop her.
This was so us.
We had a bond that defied the norm.
Laughing at the most inappropriate moments, like the one we were just having, when I was attempting to show her my “fear.”
“I swear to God, Camden…if you drop me, I’m kicking your ass.” One of her slim hands dipped beneath the edge of my jeans and squeezed. A shiver ran down the center of my back at the feel of her touch.
“Can I fuck you instead of the ass kicking?” I groaned out; the woman was killing me. Digging her nails in, she pushed my hips forward against the wall. Shamelessly I rubbed against the surface once for relief. “Make you come on my tongue.”
“Fuck,” she whimpered low. “Please, baby. Take me to our bed and make me yours.”
I kicked our bedroom door open and entered. Tossing her up on the all-white duvet, I admired the way her breasts bounced and a sassy smile curved upon her lip. My Gatita wanted to play.
“Clothes off and ass up,” I growled out while pushing my pants down past my dick. Swollen and red, my cock bounced back and slapped against my lower abs. Those gorgeous eyes of her followed the movement with undisguised hunger. “You have thirty seconds before I put you over my knee. Move.”
“And if I don’t?” Amanda taunted, her slim fingers toying with the edge of her shirt.
“Then I walk out and find something else to eat.” Without another word, my Gatita bared herself to me and assumed my favorite position; one where I could slide beneath her and savor her taste on my tongue. “So eager.”
“Shut the fuck up and come eat.”eat.”
  Ignite Teaser 2

This box set includes both Teasing Hands and Taunting Lips as well as some great bonus scenes. I have read Teasing Hands before so it was great to read it again and to read the sequel and bonus chapters. I enjoyed this box set - the hero, Camden, is absolutely delicious and the story is interesting.

Teasing Hands

Teasing Hands is a good short read.  It features the relationship between college basketball star Mandi and masseuse Camden.  Their relationship is very intense, with lots of steamy scenes and emotional turmoil.  This is the first book I've read by Elena M Reyes, and I would definitely read more from this author.  

The first chapter in this book really draws you into this story.  I instantly connected to our heroine, Mandi, she is fun, feisty, a talented athlete and someone I could really imagine being friends with.  Camden is intense, slightly mysterious, dominant, cocky and possessive - oh and very, very hot!  

Mandi first encounters Camden at a club when she is out celebrating a basketball game win with her team mates.  Instantly attracted to the mysterious stranger with the startling eyes, she doesn't expect to see him again.  So he is the last person she expects to see at the spa where she is having a girls day out with her friend and their mothers.  Sparks fly again and a complex emotional journey begins.

Camden has been badly burnt by his previous marriage, and now is frightened to become involved emotionally with anyone.  Mandi struggles to deal with his commitment issues, as she wants more than an occasional romp in Camden's massage room.  The story is told from Mandi's first person point of view, and we get a real insight into her thoughts and feelings.  I really felt for her and really wanted her to be happy.

It isn't just Camden who has issues with previous relationships.  Mandi was badly treated by her ex, so he is the last person she wants to see again.  Mandi has to deal with his reappearance and her mother trying to interfere in her private life.

The sex scenes in this scene are steamy, but I must admit I was expecting BDSM elements in this book after reading the blurb.  Camden is definitely dominant but there isn't a master/sub relationship between him and Mandi.

Overall this was an enjoyable read which gets four out of five stars.

Taunting Lips

Taunting Lips tells Camden & Mandi's story from Camden's point of view. I was worried it was going to be a bit boring, as it is basically the same story, but the author managed to keep my attention from start to finish.  

Getting into Camden's mind was fascinating, he is such a complex character. I felt like I knew him a lot more, as he was a bit of an enigma in the first book. There are plenty of sexy scenes in this book, with Camden being just as panty meltingly hot as you'd expect.

This is a well written book, I really enjoyed it. Taunting Lips receives four out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
