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.


REVIEW: RAPTURE is the second full length novel (and 3rd storyline) in Lexi Buchanan’s McKenzie Brothers series focusing on the five McKenzie Brothers (Michael, Sebastian, Ramon, Ruben and Lucien) and the women (or men) that they love. This is Sebastian and Carla’s story-one of forbidden love and secret pasts.

Sebastian wants Carla but there is a problem-Carla lives with Sebastian’s brother Ramon and the brothers all made a promise to each other that they would never date a brother’s ex. So for five months, Sebastian watches Carla at family dinners hoping that his brother will tire of his new love. But something about Carla and Ramon’s relationship doesn’t sit well with Sebastian and it isn’t only Seb that notices.

As the storyline develops, we watch as the sexual tension between Carla and Sebastian heightens with every encounter and get together. The couple met at Michael and Lily’s wedding and there was an instant attraction and connection. When the truth about Ramon and Carla’s relationship is revealed, Sebastian is quick to profess his love and his need for the woman who has occupied his every thought for months.

A good portion of the story revolves around the anxiety and angst of forbidden love as Sebastian tries to keep his distance from what he believes is his brother’s lover. When Sebastian and Carla are finally able to connect, there is someone else waiting to take the couple down.

RAPTURE is a fast paced and interesting look at sibling rivalry, family dynamics and falling in love. There is plenty of sinful sex once Sebastian and Carla become a couple and the insta-love is professed in a heart beat. The storyline has many humorous moments as the family gathers for the birth of Michael and Lily’s twins and there is something about Lucien’s relationship with Lily that has everyone questioning the same.

Lexi Buchanan combines humor, heartbreak and the love of a family to pull the reader into a storyline about one man’s forbidden desire and his need for the woman who has consumed his soul.

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.

Seduce went to #56 overall on Amazon and Sizzle went to #19 on Barnes and Noble!!

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.
