Out of Bounds, Dawn Ryder
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I have a weakness for the rich, controlling Alpha heroes…so this looked right up my street. Tarak didn’t disappoint right from the start, he’s totally in control, cares nothing for the opinions of others, and so self confident he just Knows anyone will do what he wants. So when Sabra gets to a corporate photo op unexpectedly, and he sees her there and wants her, he’s astonished that she refuses his “invitation” sent via one of his staff, and leaves. He knows she was attracted. Ladies never refuse him, and it just makes him more determined to have her. Sabra is very attracted to him, but she’s worked hard for her job, and takes it very seriously. She knows that the slightest hint that she’s involved with Tarak, and her credibility will be shot to pieces. She can’t afford, and doesn’t want, to let her work go that way. Tarak though takes steps to cover all her arguments, makes her an offer that overrides her concerns, and they quickly get into a heated, erotic, sensual romance. For Sabra her heart is fully in, despite telling herself otherwise and that its just a fling and fun, but for Tarak, well he doesn’t give his heart. He’s done that and been burned, and vowed never again, but she doesn’t give her heart lightly so where does that leave them…?
Well, what great characters, and what sizzling, sensual, well written love scenes. And they were love scenes, very quickly having evolved from just sex, though Tarak couldn’t see it and wouldn’t admit it. A great read, but one thing let it down for me, and that’s the downside. The bit that makes you greive for them, makes you want to cry..We got lots of working up to and enjoyment of the hot and heavy, but the sad part, where things go wrong, that was very quickly over and me – I like to wallow in that. Barely got a tear out and it was all over, and I need more – that then makes the make up so much sweeter and emotional. It’s 240 pages in kindle, so long enough to get fully into characters, but a bit extra length for the break up and I’d have rated it higher.
Stars: Four.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
