ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 2, 2014
Former Army intelligence officer Seth Hightower may work with the Hollywood elite as a makeup artist, but he’s learned not to trust the rich and famous with anything more than a good time. Only one woman ever tempted him to break his rules about dating actresses—and she left him with the memory of a single night and a lifetime of what-ifs.
Hollywood “It” girl Gia Harris is used to being in the spotlight. But after she witnesses something that puts her life in danger, she needs to avoid prying eyes. Seth’s special skills make him the perfect person to keep her famous face out of the news, but their history makes him the last person she wants to be alone with. He’s far too tempting—and now, far too close….
As Seth conceals Gia from those who would do her harm, they can’t ignore the blistering attraction between them. And when they give in to their cravings, they reveal more about themselves than either of them has ever laid bare before.…
REVIEW: ONLY FOR YOU is the third full length installment in Beth Kery’s adult, contemporary ONE NIGHT OF PASSION erotic romance series. This is former army intelligence officer and Hollywood makeup artist Seth Hightower and actress Gia Harris’s storyline. Although this is the third book in the series it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Some of the previous storyline characters play small roles throughout the novel but any important information revealed earlier is imparted where necessary.
Told from close third person points of view, ONLY FOR YOU is a second chance kind of storyline. Following a hot and sexy one night stand two years earlier, Gia never again heard from Seth. But Gia knew she lied about her career –an up and coming actress on the cusp of making it big –knowing that Seth wanted nothing to do with actresses or dating anyone in the industry. Two years would pass and Gia’s life is danger and Seth has been hired to protect the woman who had lied to him all those years ago.
The relationship between Seth and Gia is one of instant attraction but one built upon a lie. Seth’s experience with Hollywood actresses has left him burned and cold, but meeting Gia, Seth believed he quite possibly had found the ONE. Little did he realize that Gia was not truthful about her age, her history and her career-one that pushed Seth away-for good. When Gia’s life is threatened, Seth is reluctant to take the case knowing that he and Gia have a past. It is their mutual distrust of one another and a very long cross country car ride, that begins to fuel the fires of passion and love. The sex scenes are intimate, erotic and numerous. Seth is a man who cannot get enough of Gia and he likes control in the bedroom.
Most of the storyline focuses on the building relationship between Seth and Gia. Although our leading couple is secreted away, there is very little ongoing reference to what occurred that forces Gia into hiding. It is not until Gia is called back to testify against a Hollywood bigwig does the potential for attack become real. The focus of the story finds Gia the center of a media and paparazzi frenzy when it is believed that Gia is suffering with personal demons of her own.
The secondary characters and continued world building include some of the previous storyline couples for a sense of cohesion and familiarity. We will be reintroduced to Seth’s sister Joy and her husband/actor Everett Hughes, as well as Irish film director Rill Pierce and the love of his life Katie Hughes. Each of our storyline couples has some connection to one another-through blood, friendship and marriage.
Beth Kery is a master of erotic fiction where very little, between consenting adults, is off limits. Whether writing as Bethany Kane or Beth Kery, her storylines are definitely erotic, provocative and arousing. There is always an intense, emotional connection between her leading couples, and ONLY FOR YOU will pull you in from the very first.
