3 KINK Review | Advanced Copy Kindly Gifted By Author/PR 
The Rule Maker is a hilarious enemy to lovers’ romantic comedy. Zoey Reynolds has a one night stand with Ryder Covington. It ends badly and kudos to never ever seeing him again.
Fast forward, Zoey, an interior designer , lands a sweet contract to renovated a dilapidated ski resort purchased by Jason Covington. Jason is now a recluse and sends his brother Ryder to supervised the project. Ryder, a professional snowboarder, is recuperating from an injury and has agreed to help managed the remodel.
Zoey and Ryder reunion is priceless. It was hysterical and the main reason why I wanted to continue reading. It’s very original and I loved it! I fell in love with their drop dead witty dialogue. It’s filled with laugh-out-loud one line zingers throughout.
In the beginning the reunion is a little angst. Zoey is afraid Ryder will hurt her again . However, once Ryder and Zoey start working together they begin to accept their mutual attraction. Because of the dual POV, we have a good account why Ryder ditched Zoey the morning after. It helps to understand the reason because I want so much to give Ryder his swoon-worthy “good guy” badge.
In the end, Zoey’s dream is realized and Ryder finds someone he is willing to fight for at any cost. A joyful good read.

Synopsis: Ten Steps to Surviving a New Job:

1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)

2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.

3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.

4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.

5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he demands new design after new design.

6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.

7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.

8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.

9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your job—maybe even your heart.

10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.

Black excerpt

 

Snow gusting against the window was the only sound in the room as he searched for a show for us to watch.

So quiet. Way too quiet. I fidgeted with my necklace, moving the small diamond

back and forth on the chain. The last time I was in bed with Ryder…I didn’t even want to finish that thought, because it’d do nothing but make this situation worse. I chanced a peek in his direction.

He chewed the inside of his cheek, swiping through our options. “This is awkward, huh?” he said.

“We’ve achieved Urkel status.”

He chuckled and scrolled through the show queue. “Would you rather watch Law and Order: SVU or Criminal Minds?”

“That is quite possibly the worst Would You Rather question ever asked.”

His eyes cut to mine. “I didn’t know I was playing a game.”

“You’ve never played it?”
He shook his head.
Lainey and I played this game all the time in college,

and when we’d take road trips together. She always came up with the grossest ones. “It’s simple. All you have to do is ask the person which horrible thing they’d rather do. The harder

the question, the better. Like would you rather lay in a pit of snakes, or eat questionably dead roadkill?” I pointed to his phone. “Oh, John Tucker Must Die. I like that one.

“Negative, ghost rider.” He scrolled past my suggestion. “And what the hell does questionably dead mean? Is it still twitching, or are we talking suspicious cause of death?”

I shrugged. “The interpretation’s up to you.”

“You’re absolutely no help.” He swiped his thumb across his beard and contemplated. “I guess I’d go with the snakes.”

“Okay, now it’s your turn,” I said.

“Do I really have to play? I thought we were picking a show.”

I shot him a look.

“Fine. Would you rather have me or Chewbacca as your valentine?”

“Too easy. The spider.”
He put his hand to his heart. “You wound me.”
“Stop being such a baby.” I swatted at his chest and

immediately pulled my hand back. Nope. Would not go there. “Okay, would you rather not be able to see or talk for a month?”

He answered instantly. “See.”

“Right. You’d probably go nuts if you couldn’t open that big mouth of yours.”

His lips twitched. “You’re one to talk.”

“Excuse me?” Okay, I did have a tough time keeping my thoughts on lockdown outside the office, but that was my own cross to bear.

“Don’t even try to play it off like you’re innocent.”

I’d dated a lot of losers in the past, most who hadn’t even bothered to get to know me, but even after only hanging out a few times, Ryder had me pegged. He was perceptive. I saw the look in his eyes whenever I dealt with Jason. His attention focused solely on me was unnerving. “Jerk,” I sputtered.

“Now I know you’re holding back. You can do way better than that.” He scrolled through his phone again. “How about Die Hard?”

“Are all your show selections about death? I’m starting to worry I’d made a mistake coming over here.” My lips pulled into a smile and I quickly extinguished it. God, I wanted to hate him.

“Fine.” He continued looking at the Netflix queue. “Would you rather eat sushi from a taco stand, or lick an airplane armrest?”

“Good one. Sushi.” I pointed to his screen. “How about

10 Things I Hate About You?”He shook his head and chuckled. “Are all of your

suggestions going to not-so-subtly tell me you hate me?”
I smiled sweetly. “Maybe.”
“Just think, most people would find this to be a romantic

escape. Two people, stuck in the mountains on Valentine’s Day,” he said.

“We’re Hallmark movie material, all right,” I deadpanned.

“Okay, fine. How about The Walking Dead?”

“Your show picking powers have been officially revoked.” I grabbed the phone from his hand.

“Hey!” He grabbed for the phone and I held it out of reach. “You’re going to regret that.” Within seconds he was on top of me, playfully pinning me to the bed, his strong hands circling my wrists. Air evaporated from my lungs as

our gazes connected.
I was immediately transported back to that night.
Tell me what you want, Zoey. Tell me what you need from

I swallowed hard. That was months ago, and those words still haunted me from time to time. Because he did exactly that, gave me what I wanted and needed. Repeatedly.

3 KINK Review
Source: Advance Copy kindly gifted by author/publisher/PR

Disarmed is a delightful and stimulating erotic romance with a ménage story line leaving you aroused and entertained. It will capture your interest from the beginning with the witty banter between the girlfriends at their secretive sex club.

Although I did not want the storyline to detour to a more traditional romance, it is a good and fast read.  The story weaves between the lives of Jade and her two Doms:  Miles and Carson.

It’s a must read for those who like their kink with multiple partners, dirty talking alpha males and public displays of eliciting sexual pleasures. Granted the avid ménage reader will enjoy the storyline, the author will evoke an emotional pull with great compassion dealing with family issues. Loaded with tons of spicy sex, fans will not be able to put the book down.

 

Blurb:

Jade McGuire lives a double life. To the outside world, she is a well-put together art connoisseur with a good head on her shoulders. But in the privacy of a downtown DC apartment, she lives out every fantasy she has ever had.

Twice over.

Strong and independent during the day, Jade kneels at the feet of her two Doms once the sun sets.

After a chance meeting at Ruby’s Lounge, Miles Jennings and Carson Dunn find themselves playing a very dangerous, albeit sexually fulfilling, game. And all bets are off when the goal is to win the girl.

Young couple makes love to the wall

Noelle Berry is going places. She’s an in-demand sensual massage therapist at the famed Devi’s Bliss spa just outside San Francisco, nestled among the breath-taking redwoods of Marin County.

Mikey.

Her kid brother. Charming. Clever. Cute. But always in trouble.

To get him out of the home they grew up in, Noelle became Mikey’s guardian. But so far her good example has failed to teach him anything. Not responsibility, not ambition, not good judgment.

But when Mr. R comes to Devi’s Bliss for a massage, things seem like they might be turning a corner. Not only is he devastatingly handsome, he also wants to help her realize her dream. Right away. He even has a plan for Mikey. But can Noelle leave her past behind and trust him? Can she let him prove he’s different from the man in her life who hurt her the most?
