5 STAR REVIEW: SINFULLY MINE BY KENDALL RYAN!!!

Title: Sinfully Mine
Author: Kendall Ryan
Release Date: JULY 14, 2015!!

SYNOPSIS:
SINFULLY MINE is a standalone contemporary romance novel from New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kendall Ryan.
She was forbidden.
I didn’t care.
As my best friend's little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits. Tempting as sin, and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.
I didn't.
When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.
With my heart on lockdown, and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.
No strings. No attachments.
And definitely no falling for her again.
If you like steamy love stories, you won't want to miss this older brother's best friend romance.
This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you're sure to fall in love with. Enjoy!
PRE-ORDER HERE:

Ahhhhhhh! Reece, Reece, Reece!!!! Sweet, sinful Reece. Gah! 

This man. 

I love him with the kind of love that borderlines fanatical! He's something else. Another dimension. He's so broken, so intense, but also so soft and sweet. It's a beautiful and dynamic paradox. It makes me shiver. As I was reading Sinfully Mine, I felt myself falling. I was at the edge of a cliff and I tumbled head first into a full blown love fest. He took ALL of my senses and put them on high alert. It was amazing. I really and truly can't explain it. 

After reading and adoring The Gentleman Mentor, I was a buzz with what was going to happen in this book. I had huge expectations. HUGE. The sneak peek at the end of Hale's novel was such a tasty and tantalizing morsel, I knew I had to get my hands on Reece and Macey's story. And I had to do it soon. It was going to be good, I just knew it. 

What I didn't know was that Reece was so much more damaged than Hale. That caught me off guard. I'm not sure why, but he was so much deeper than I initially thought he was. He's tortured by a broken heart and that heart has been closed off, afraid to make any emotional connections with woman. He's living life but not really living. He throws himself into work and he's a hell of a business man. He doesn't take on submissive's. He does scenes at Crave, has hookups here and there, but for the most part, he keeps him self blocked from the world. **Ah, my heart. My Reece.** He exists like that until Macey shows up.

Macey's appearance shakes him to the core. It's been six, long years since they've seen each other. And time hasn't healed old wounds, if anything it's just caused them to ooze silently. During their time apart, Macey's changed. She's not the same girl Reece fell in love. She's a hot blooded, beautiful woman who's coming off a bad break up. She's looking for a change. For something to breathe life into her her veins. She wants to spice things up and she wants Reece.

What I totally ADORED about Macey was that she pushed Reece's limits without realizing it. Her personality is as big as Texas. She's easy to love and a couple times in this story my heart broke for her. Reece doesn't treat her right. He's so broken, he doesn't know how to. He can't. But Macey is a strong woman. She knows what she wants. I loved seeing her relationship with Hale (her brother) and I LOVVVVEDDD seeing Hale's protective side when it came to his sister. It added so much depth to the story!

Ahh! Hale. Reece. **faints** You have to meet these men. Dear, God. They are HAWTTTTT! 

Overall Sinfully Mine rocked. It's steamy, but I think it's more emotional than anything else. The BDSM aspect is very light. Like super, duper light. There are a couple "Dom-ish" scenes but those are more emotionally explosive than anything else. Reece is not open to a relationship, so when Macey shows up and they agree (with Hale's begrudging approval <<--- hehehe) to some lessons, he's resolute in keeping his heart sealed tight.

This book is about second chances. It is a second chance love story. It's about healing old wounds, about allowing yourself the freedom to move on. It's about choosing to love no matter the fear of it going bad. Love is a courageous act. It really is. It's putting yourself in another persons hands and giving them a measure of control over your life. And for a man like Reece, who prides himself on complete control, that's scary. 

Together, this couple is electric. Their chemistry is undeniable. Magnetic. Tangible. 
The story is unbelievably addicting.
I LOVED it. 
I REALLY, REALLY, LOVED it. 

It's safe to say that Kendall Ryan is my new FAV author. I can't get enough. I want to read every. single. one of her books. And I plan to make a reading calendar, log them all, and start a binge session. Her writing is the perfect mix of emotion and steam. It's clean, not overly fluffy, but each word is there for a reason and packs one hell of a punch! 
It's phenomenal. 

I give Reece and Macey's Sinfully Sexy Story 5 SENSATIONAL Stars!!!!!
