Blitz Tour Stop: "Rapture" by Lexi Buchannan

MB 02 - Rapture  

(McKenzie Brothers, Book 2)

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. Also catch up with the McKenzie family as they welcome the twins to the family. Each book has a HEA 'Happily Ever After'


4 Stars

Rapture, book 2 in the McKenzie Brothers series, picks up rather nicely where we left off in The Wedding novella (1.5). One thing Lexi can do is transition a story very seamlessly. We made a jump to 5 months later at Lily’s baby shower in the book. I don’t feel like I missed anything moving onto Sebastian and Carla’s story, which was nice.  This is a great story told from a dual POV with Carla and Sebastian. I truly love this series and think this book was a good addition to the overall storyline.

Lexi can write some steamy scenes…..let’s get that out there!

Sebastian saw Carla from across the way at his brother’s wedding and couldn’t keep his eyes off her!!  It was instant attraction for Sebastian…..he saw Carla and wanted to meet her. He knew instantly that she was different. His description of his first sight of her just melts your heart. He was captivated by her beauty:

“My breath catches in my chest as she walks out of the marquee, if you could call it walking; she practically floats with grace and elegance. She’s breathtaking! One of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen with a tall slim build and full breasts that accentuate her hourglass figure. Her long, dark hair was a cascade of curls down her back, and over her shoulders.”

But….it turns out that she is with his brother, Ramon. He couldn’t believe it!! Finally a woman that makes him stop in his tracks, and she is taken!!  The attraction between the two of them in palpable and ‘forbidden’ in the McKenzie brothers’ world since Ramon is ‘dating’ Carla….or so we think. I loved the honesty of the feelings behind this relationship….the attraction was SO strong, and very undeniable, yet they were staying apart because she was in a ‘relationship’. Undeniable….strong…..intense. Good use of those words would describe the pull they had towards each other.

Here is the kicker….Sebastian likes to love’em and leave’em.  He isn’t a one woman man….he likes to play the field and say goodbye after he scores.  He denied his attraction…to himself. He wanted to. But every time they were in a room together, he couldn’t take his eyes off her.  He wanted to touch her, to talk to her… kiss her. But he didn’t do love.

Hell no. No way in hell can I be in love with Carla. I don’t do love, not like my sap of a brother, no way in fucking hell.  ~Sebastian

Carla wasn’t immune to Sebastian’s charm either….she felt, with every bit of her being, how attracted she was to him! Especially after running into each other at Lily’s baby shower….in the pantry, behind closed doors, alone….together.

His touch makes me shiver, which runs through me, if the slight shake to his hands is any indication, he’s just as affected by our touch. Why is something that feels so right, so wrong?   ~Carla

There is drama in this book….but not the normal drama you see. This one is in the form of a crazy ex out to get revenge and a clueless bimbo that wants her own ‘piece’ of the McKenzie pie. The way they were handled was super quick, and it was done and over. It wasn’t long and drawn out. It was NOT the main focus of the book, but added a little drama to make you want to read some more.

Their love affair made leaps and bounds in this book. They have some steamy hot, super sexy love scenes. Their appetite for one another is insatiable and Sebastian is so caring and protective of Carla, we definitely got to see the alpha male in him!

As I watch him, I feel heat licking at my body. He is divine and I know he’s feeling my gaze as the bulge in his pants is growing before my eyes. Unable to help myself, I lick my lips only to have my eyes shoot up to his when I hear him groan.

“If you keep looking at me as though you want me in your mouth, I’m not going to be responsible for the consequences.”

This was a short and sweet addition to the McKenzie brothers’ story and I can’t wait to read Ruben’s book next!! This is a fun, lighthearted and steamy series that is easy to read and one that you can pick up and get sucked into. How many families have this many hot sons….? Apparently the McKenzie family does!!

I rate this book in the series 4 short and sweet stars!



Carla's POV

What the hell has gotten into Sebastian? He practically dragged me out of Lily’s room and now he’s dragging me down the hallway as though there’s a fire. He looks through the window to a room. “In here,” he says, pushing the door open before pulling me inside and out of view of the window. “Sebasti–” He slams his mouth to mine and pushes me up against the wall, grabbing my thighs he hoists me up so I wrap my legs around him coming into contact with his huge swollen cock, making my eyes open wide. I had no idea he was so aroused. I shove my fingers into his hair, holding his mouth to me. The things he does with his tongue has me wet and aching. “I need you babe.” He lets my feet hit the floor, unzips me, shoving my jeans and thong down my legs before releasing his cock, which is already wet at the tip. I can’t take my eyes off him as he jerks with arousal and takes hold of himself, pulling back to the root of him and holding there. “Carla,” he says between gritted teeth, “I’m going to come the minute I get inside you.” That’s the only warning I get. He spins me around. I place my hands on the wall as he pulls my hips towards him before thrusting inside me. He feels so good, filling me up, which sets off little electric shocks along my channel. Letting go of my hips, he wraps me up in his arms and slides his hands up inside my top, shoving my bra above my breasts and starts massaging and pinching my nipples. “Hmm,” I moan resting my head on his shoulder behind me. My breath catches as he pulls most of the way out of me, leaving just the tip inside. “I’m going to fuck your cunt now.” Oh God! He starts pumping his hips in and out of me. One hand stays on my nipple while the other moves to my clit. The minute he touches me between my legs, he pinches my nipple and I explode. Seeing stars, I can’t stop climaxing. My channel grips Sebastian’s cock. My muscles rippling up and down the length of him. Cursing, he pulls out shoving his fingers inside me to ride out my orgasm. I feel his other hand take hold of his cock, which is pressed against my ass before turning my head and watching him ejaculate on the floor. Unable to catch my breath, I stay resting against the wall as he removes his fingers from inside me. I hear Sebastian putting himself back together before he bends and pulls my thong and jeans back up then he turns me around to fasten them. He kisses my lips, pulling me back into his arms. “God, did I need you…but shit, it would have been too messy if I came inside you here.” “I know.” I love him coming inside me. It makes me feel even more connected to him than just having his dick inside me. “You like my words, baby?” he whispers into my ear, rubbing my ass and pushing me against him. “You can’t be ready to go again?” “I’m always ready with you, and answer the question,” he chuckles. Why I blush when he uses those naughty words, I don’t know, but I do and now I probably look like a tomato. “You’re not saying anything, but I’ll let you off the hook for now because I know you find them as hot as I do when I use them and I bet if I touch your pussy it will be wet and not just from the orgasm you’ve just had.” Breaking away from him, I smack his arm. “Stop embarrassing me.” I try to leave the room, but he catches me around the waist. “I’ll be using those words again the next time I’m buried deep inside you,” he whispers in my ear. “Your little cunt will tell me how much dirty talk turns you on.” My body feels alive again. He’s just brought me to orgasm, and I already need him again. His words do turn me on, although I’m not used to hearing them when referring to my body parts. Oh, I’ve seen them in enough books that I’ve read, in fact Bared to You comes to mind, but God, Sebastian is right. Hearing those words turns me on something wicked. He moves to stand in front of me and smirks when he sees the lust I’m struggling to hide on my face. If we weren’t in an unlocked hospital room, I’d be on him again. “C’mon, before Mom comes looking for us. I promise to behave in public from now on,” he smirks. Opening the door for me, we walk out straight into Michael and Lucien. “Where have you two been?” Lucien pauses, looks between the two of us, and then continues, “Then again never mind. Carla you go back into Lily’s room, while we interrogate Sebastian and don’t worry we’re going to sit right over there by the door.” Lucien points.

About the Author

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. 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.
