The second book in the bestselling Club X series

Stefan March lives for a good time. Born into wealth, he sees everything in terms of what he can have, especially women. So far, life has denied him nothing and no one. When he meets his newest bartender, he instantly knows who his next conquest will be, but Shay’s not like the usual women he collects. To get her, he’ll have to be more than just the player he’s always been.

Shay Callahan is beautiful, determined, and intelligent. She’s got plans for her life, and they don’t include getting sidetracked by a man, and certainly not her wealthy player boss. Her job at Club X is for one thing—money to fund her education—but if she can make Stefan March see he’s not God’s gift to women, all the better. She never expects to find out there’s more to him than meets the eye.

As different as day and night, can these two see past who they think they are to find love?

••••••••••••••••••

REVIEW: SURRENDER is the second installment in KM Scott’s adult, contemporary Club X erotic romance series (a spin off from her Heart of Stone trilogy) focusing on three brothers: Cassian and Stefan March, and their half brother Kane Jackson-co owners of Club X-a secreted club where all of your erotic fantasies come true. Each story is a stand alone and ends with a happily ever after but for cohesion, history and backstory I recommend reading in order because each storyline is interconnected. This is Stefan March and microbiologist Shaylene (Shay) Callahan’s story.

Told from alternating first person points of view (Shay and Stefan) SURRENDER follows Shay and Stefan’s building relationship. Shay needs money as she is about to embark on a year long research project in Copenhagen and Club X will offer up the ideal position to attain her financial goals. But Shay has been forewarned about the youngest March brother Stefan, a man-whore whose bad boy reputation proceeds his introduction. Shay is already predisposed to Stefan’s distinctive history and within minutes of introduction Shay has tried and convicted Stefan as the womanizer he is purported to be. From the steady stream of women exiting his office, Shay knows that she must keep her distance or find herself caught up in the downward spiral of Stefan March. But what Shay doesn’t know is that Stefan has plans of his own.

As the storyline progresses, so too does the relationship between Shay and Stefan. From stolen nights, and promises of friendship and love, Shay begins to fall for Stefan but there are reasons people earn reputations and Stefan must face the possibility of losing everything when an unspoken threat against the Club puts Stefan directly in the path of betrayal and hurt. The sex scenes are passionate, intimate and intense but there are moments where I had to question both Stefan and Shay’s direction and intent.

The world building continues with Club X as the background to the brothers’ stories. The dark secrets hidden behind the walls of Club X add an air of mystery and fantasy to a series that focuses on three brothers whose lives could not have been any different. The colorful secondary characters include Shay’s friend Cassie, Stefan’s brothers, as well as Cassian’s fiancée Olivia, and the employees who work for Club X. The brothers each control a different aspect of the Club and in this we learn a little bit about the happenings of what goes on behind the scenes. The ongoing need for protection will find the Club and our brothers at odds with what needs to be done and Stefan will risk everything, including Shay, for the forgiveness he believes he does not deserve.

KM Scott’s CLUB X series is a compelling and captivating look at three brothers and the women they love. The condemnation and self debasing nature for Stefan is equal to the pain he has caused his family, and in this, we are pulled into the emotional and destructive nature of sibling rivalry and brotherly love. SURRENDER Club X 2 is an incredible storyline of heartbreak and betrayal; family and love.

•••••••••••••••••

REVIEW:  TEMPTATION is the first instalment in KM Scott’s adult, contemporary erotic romance CLUB X spin off series from her popular Heart of Stone trilogy. Each new instalment in the Club X series focuses on one of three March brothers-this is Cassian (Cash) March and Olivia Lucas’s story. Each story is a stand alone and ends with a HEA. You do not have to have read Scott’s Heart of Stone series to understand or comprehend the Club X series but I highly recommend reading the Heart of Stone Trilogy for your own pleasure.

The focus of the storyline follows Olivia Lucas as she begins to work for the mysterious Cassian March at his secreted Club X. Very little information is known to the public about what happens behind the closed doors of Club X. Olivia is about to embark on a new job where fantasies really do come true. Club X straddles the line of legality and in this, the March brothers will face off against the law, the media and possibly one of their own.

The relationship between Cassian and Olivia begins as boss and employee but soon moves along to much more. When Olivia arranges her for own night of fantasy she can’t seem to get enough of the mysterious man who has been chosen to make all of her dreams come true and in this the storyline begins to unfold. TEMPTATION is a story of forbidden love –one where betrayal and revenge will force Cassian to make a decision that will affect his relationship with Olivia and the people who work at Club X.

The secondary characters include Cassian’s brothers Stefan and Kane. Stefan is quite the man-whore and Kane hides a dark and dangerous past. We are introduced to Olivia’s friends who step in to protect the friend that they love but one friend wants something more from Olivia than she is willing to give.

TEMPTATION: Club X takes the reader behind the scenes of a specialty club where, for a price, just about anything you want can be found-pushing the boundaries of the law is an every day occurrence. The sex scenes are seductive, sensual and compelling. KM Scott pulls the reader into a startling world where fantasy meets reality; where romance comes with a price; and where one woman will have to confront the truth about the man with whom she has fallen in love.

About the book: Release Date August 5, 2014

She needs to be good.

Five years ago, Kit Landry was homeless and alone at sixteen. Determined to ditch her crappy life, she moved to Nashville with only $200, her guitar, and a notebook full of songs. She hit it big as America’s country sweetheart, but a year of living like a rock star plus a stint in rehab has killed any good will she had with her label. The suits have ordered Kit to shape up or ship out of the limelight. The last thing she needs is a hot, sexy distraction with a sinful smile.

He doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

Max Butler is as far from a celebrity as you can get and he likes it that way. A Nashville firefighter, he’s living the single life with a revolving door of parties, friends, and a different woman in his bed every night. When his normal life suddenly collides with the girl on his favorite Rolling Stone cover, he sees the perfect chance to fulfill his ultimate fantasy and see just how bad Kit can be.

Sometimes bad is so very good.

With three weeks until Kit leaves for her big tour, Max promises to give her a break from being the good girl–no strings attached. But when hot days lead to sultry nights, the lines get blurred and suddenly three weeks of bad might not be good enough.

••••••••••••••••••••

REVIEW: TEMPTATION is the latest adult, contemporary release from author Robin Covington. The storyline focuses on Nashville firefighter Max Butler and twenty one year old country music star Kit Landry. Told from alternating first person POV (Kit and Max) the storyline follows their building relationship after Max rescues Kit from a burning studio. Kit has been placed on notice by her recording company following a stint in rehab and Max is a distraction she doesn’t need.

Max and Kit’s relationship is in constant turmoil-from nosey paparazzi to the sell out of a friendship and more, our couple find themselves in the spotlight for everything that could wrong. When provocative images of the couple are brought to the attention of Kit’s producers, it doesn’t take a genius to know that someone close has targeted Kit for another fall.

The secondary characters included Max’s family, friend and fellow firefighters who give Max a little bit of trouble when his love life begins to spiral out of control. Kit’s entourage and management team tend to make her life a little more complicated and in the end she must open her eyes to the possibility that she has been betrayed by the very people who have promised to be there if she falls.

TEMPTATION pulls the reader onto the stage and back rooms as a one time star must prove to the fans and herself that she is ready for everything that life and money have to offer. Robin Covington writes a story that is seductive and realistic with its’ gritty, no nonsense look at the price of fame on friendship, family and love.

excerpt

 

 

I couldn’t stop thinking about that kiss. How she’d tasted, how she’d felt in my arms. Despite the difference in our size, Kit fit perfectly against me—like she was made to be there. We had chemistry, alright. But that was all it was or would ever be.
“Excuse me, can you tell me where I can find Shannon Jones?”
The voice came out of nowhere and I lurched up, banging the top of my head on the edge of the fire truck door. Biting back the “fuck me” that could get me written up, I straightened, turned, and found myself looking right into the eyes of the woman I’d just been obsessing over.
Kit was standing there in my station, an expression of surprise and then concern on her face as she glanced to where I’d clonked the living shit out of myself just seconds before. She was wearing a low-cut, little blue sundress and cowboy boots and everything else was miles of bare skin and dark curls. My brain went mushy. Maybe I’d hit my head harder than I’d thought.
Her voice was full of concern as she moved closer. “Max, are you okay? I didn’t mean to sneak up behind you.”
I stared at her like an idiot. In person, I was reminded again of just how gorgeous she was. She walked towards me and I couldn’t move, couldn’t take my eyes off of her. If you looked up “dumbstruck” in the dictionary, you’d see my goofy-ass face pasted right next to it.
I still hadn’t answered when she stopped in front of me. Standing on tiptoe she touched my recent injury. “Are you sure you’re okay?”
Her voice was feminine, with a whiskey-edge that tied my gut up in knots. Her hand was cool on my over-heated skin and, as she moved closer, I could smell her sweet, summery, honeysuckle scent. All I wanted to do was pull her lush curves against my body, take her mouth, and find out exactly where this crazy chemistry would take us.
I definitely had a head injury because suddenly I realized that I had her close enough to do all those things and I wasn’t doing anything about it.

Get your shit together, Butler. Carpe the fucking diem.
I grabbed her by the waist and pulled her towards me, turning us so she was backed up against the door of the fire truck. She still held her packages in her hands and I missed the feel of her touch on my body, but I could work with what I had.
She stared up at me, her big, blue eyes wide with shock but mostly what I saw there was curiosity. She licked her lips and that was all the invitation I needed. I leaned into her, bypassing the prize of her mouth to press a kiss to her throat, just above the place where her pulse pounded against her skin. She was delicious all over, sweet and warm, and I wanted to drag her down to the floor and bury my cock inside her body for hours.
I looked down and realized that my hands were shaking, my breath as quick as hers—and I hadn’t even kissed her yet.
“When we fuck, it’s probably going to kill me.” It came out as a growl, as I tipped her face up to mine and wasted no more time in taking what I wanted.
Kit didn’t play games, no pretending that she didn’t want this, too. She opened to me, meeting my tongue more than halfway when I dove inside. She was as hungry as I was and the kiss was anything but the usual finesse I used on women. There was no slow seduction here. It wasn’t in my power to play games. I was at the mercy of whatever she would give me.
I slanted my mouth over hers, barely giving her a chance to take a breath before I went at her again like I was starving.
And I was famished. For her. It was the craziest thing I’d ever experienced, but I wasn’t going to let a little insanity stop me. It never had before.
I wrapped my arms around her waist, inserting my body in between her legs. The skirt of her dress rode up high on her thighs as I pressed my hard-on against the hot cleft of her pussy. I rolled my hips against her and she dropped the bags in her hands with a thud against the concrete, weaving her fingers into my hair with a pressure that brought a little pain with the pleasure.
I didn’t care. She could do whatever she wanted to my body as long as I got to do exactly what I was doing right now. As long as she let me do this and so much more.

excerpt

Finished with his ribbon, I rested my hands on his chest and leaned up to kiss his cheek.
Under my hands, his chest constricted with his swift intake of breath at the moment my lips touched his skin. I inhaled deeply, soaking in his scent of cedar wood, citrus, and warm male while the blood pounded in my ears and my skin grew warmer. Pulling away, we both exhaled slowly as our eyes locked in a heated exchange of shock and desire.
There was no mistaking the look of desire in his eyes, and I’m sure it matched the one in my own. I wanted him with jaw-clenching intensity and the part of me that was all woman unfurled after being packed away for so long. I might as well have been back on that fire escape, because this felt just as dangerous. More dangerous.
Behind me, the gathered paparazzi began to call out above the murmuring of the crowd.
“Give him a real kiss, Kit!”
“Is that how you thank a hero?”¬
“Kiss him!”
At the sound of their voices, I glanced over my shoulder. Everyone was smiling encouragingly; the press wanted the photo, the other firefighters were cheering on their boy.
I looked back at Max for his opinion.
A smirk pulled at the edge of his lips. “I did save your life.”
I narrowed my eyes, not really mad at the suggestion. “That’s not fair.”
He shrugged his shoulders the slightest bit and grinned. “Chicken?”
Oh. Hell. No.
Determined and rising to the bait, I lifted my face, slowly closing the distance between our mouths. This would be quick, fun and flirty, and over before it began.
I had no fucking clue what I was talking about.
The first press of our mouths was like being hooked up to a live wire. We both broke contact in surprise but quickly began again, the lure of such intense pleasure already addictive.
I was the one who took it deeper, running my tongue along his, dipping inside to taste him. I couldn’t help myself; it was like putting my favorite dessert in front of me and saying that I could only have a sample. Good luck trying to stop me.
Max groaned and grabbed my hips, his fingers lightly digging into my flesh—tugging me closer and turning the kiss hotter, wetter. His mouth slanted over mine and his tongue stroked past my lips, taking what he wanted and what I freely gave. My knees went weak, and I clutched the fabric of his uniform, holding him close as the kiss went on and on.
The sound of whooping and clapping startled me and snapped me back to reality. This wasn’t good.
I distanced myself from Max, only far enough away to end the kiss but not far enough to lose the physical contact of his hands on me. I was breathing hard, my breasts swollen under the tight dress, my lips tender and tingly. Max was panting, his face hard and eyes hot.
Painfully aware of our audience and my management and label resident glaring at me from the other end of the room, I tried to pull back further but Max shook his head, holding me in his grip.
“We shouldn’t have done that,” I said.
“Maybe not, but I want to do it again,” he answered, his smile intimate and naughty enough to make me shiver. “And I want to do more.”
I sucked in a breath. I had thought the fire was dangerous, but I was wrong. Max was the thing I needed to worry about.
“You’re no angel,” I whispered.
“I’m glad you finally figured it out.”
