DELIGHT (McKenzie Brothers #3) by Lexi Buchanan-a review and blog tour
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date May 20, 2014
Kenza nightclub owner, Ruben McKenzie can have any woman he wants, but the only woman he wants is Rosie—his sweet innocent employee, who happens to be eleven years his junior. Watching her parade her hot little body around his club, serving drinks completely unaware of the attention she attracts is driving him to distraction. But when he sees a regular getting close to her, all bets are off.
Rosie has had more than enough life experience, but when it comes to matters of the heart—the one place that Ruben wants in—she’s completely innocent. Having no family of her own, it’s a dream to be invited to a McKenzie family gathering. Rosie always wanted to belong to a family like the McKenzie’s, but she’s afraid that if she gives her heart to Ruben and things don’t work she’ll be crushed, beyond repair.
Neither one of them may be able to keep their distance for long. The trouble that has been brewing at Kenza finally comes to a head, and when Rosie finds herself caught up in it, how far will Ruben go to protect her?
In this third installment of the McKenzie Brothers series you’ll learn more about the two remaining brothers, Lucien and Ramon. New players, Hunter and Julian, will be introduced.
None of my books have cliffhangers and they can be read as standalone, but to get the full background on the rest of the family then I do suggesting reading Seduce, The Wedding and Rapture first.
REVIEW: DELIGHT is the third instalment in Lexi Buchanan’s contemporary, adult McKenzie Brothers erotic romance series focusing on the five McKenzie brothers and the women (and men) they love. This is Ruben McKenzie and Rosie’s storyline. Ruben is the owner of the Kenza nightclub where Rosie serves drinks and tends bar. Ruben has been attracted to Rosie since the day she was hired at the club but he has had a hands off policy when it comes to the staff-until the day Rosie lets him know exactly how she feels. This the third full length storyline in the series but it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty although it is better to read in order as many of the previous storyline characters-including the entire McKenzie clan-play minor roles throughout the story.
The focus of the storyline is the building relationship between Ruben and Rosie but also the strange happenings inside the Kenza nightclub. From fights, to break ins, to questionable individuals Ruben suspects that something is going down but finding proof is difficult when the staff are your number one suspects.
The relationship between Ruben and Rosie is hot, sensual, seductive and steamy. Ruben is a man who likes a little kink with his sex and Rosie is a woman who has a difficult time overcoming the memories of her past.
The secondary characters include all of the McKenzie brothers, Ruben’s parents and the introduction of Hunter and Julian-a former marine who aids in the stake out with Ruben’s staff. There is plenty of humor with the matriarch Pippa McKenzie when the family get together for Sunday dinners, and she is all up in the McKenzie’s boys’ business when it comes to love and relationship. This is a woman who desperately wants grandchildren and she knows a good thing when she sees Ruben and Rosie together.
DELIGHT is a sexually erotic storyline about two people who have wanted one another for a very long time but their age difference and experience has kept them apart. Lexi Buchanan pulls the reader into a story of family and friendship; love and understanding; and giving in to the desires that control your heart and your soul.

by Lexi Buchanan
Release Date: April 17, 2013
Meet Michael, Sebastian, Ruben, Lucien and Ramon McKenzie.
Five hot brothers who are about to meet five equally hot partners.
Book 1 is Michael McKenzie’s story.
Michael is CEO of McKenzie Holdings and has a very bad habit of placing work before all else. His wife, Viv, had died in a car accident, with her current lover, on the way to meet with the divorce attorney’s six years ago. Michael was divorcing her because he’d discovered she’d had a stream of lovers during the course of their marriage. Since her death he’s had no wish to get involved with anyone, until Lily.
Lily, having lost her job at Oakfield Development gains employment at McKenzie Holdings thinking she’s going to work as the Assistant to Dale Roberts, but unbeknown to Lily she has been hired to work as Michael’s assistant. Lily is shocked, and disappointed to realize that the man she’s just been flirting with in the elevator is actually her boss.
Lily and Michael are instantly drawn to each other, but he’s her boss and Lily lives with her boyfriend of seven years. David, her boyfriend, has been acting strange for about five months which has caused Lily to re-evaluate her relationship with him and it comes up short, a lot. She had decided before meeting Michael that she wanted out of her relationship with David, but she has nowhere else to go, so she stays with him for now.
Michael and Lily finally start their relationship, which involves a lot of hot loving and scarves which Lily uses on Michael! Their relationship seems to be heading towards happily ever after, until Lily makes an announcement to Michael, which has him telling her to leave his home. She does, heartbroken, and runs to his brother Lucien.

RAPTURE (McKenzie Brothers #2) by Lexi Buchanan
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 30, 3013
Sebastian has never in his thirty-four years had such a strong attraction to a woman. Oh, he’s felt instant lust before, more times that he cares to remember, but there’s something about Carla that’s different and he finds it difficult to get her out of his head, which is where she needs to be considering she’s dating his brother.
Carla has been pretending to date Ramon for a while now to keep a violent ex of hers away and to keep Ramon’s family off his back. They’ve been friends for a couple of years, so it was only natural that they’d help each other out, except she hasn’t bargained on falling for Ramon’s brother, Sebastian.
I was born in Bolton, Lancashire within the United Kingdom, where I lived, and worked at the University of Bolton, until I moved to Ireland with my husband, four kids and pack of animals.
We are now settled in a lovely town, in County Cavan. The kids love their schools, once they get there that is.
My eldest daughter, is on the Irish Junior Archery Team, and spends her time training. At least she does when her dad can get her off her ipad, reading or listening to music.
I have recently joined the book review blog, Book Addict Mumma and made a wonderful new friend in Kristy Louise Garbutt, my new boss!
My kindle is loaded with too many books to mention, as I absolutely love to read when I have the chance.
My all time high would be to stand at the foot of Mount Everest in the Himalayas.
