~ 4.5 STARS~

SOLSTICE BURN by Kym Grosso is quick and HOT read you should definitely pick up! This was my first book by this author and I must say, I’m a fan. SOLSTICE BURN is the prequel to Kym’s new series, CLUB ALTURA – which FYI, I’ve started and it’s fantastic.
This novella follows Chase and Penny’s story. Right from the very beginning I enjoyed how this installment was written. It allowed me to fully understand the characters and their personalities…which let me tell you, they were quite the opposite.

Chase was more of a free-spirited kind of guy, while Penny was all about focus and control. This was mainly why I believe Penny needed Chase in her life. She needed to actually live her life, instead of just existing through it. Fate truly intervened here by bringing these two souls together. Their chemistry sizzled ad I truly felt it!

Now, while SOLSTICE BURN was a quick read, it did not feel short or lacking. I actually enjoyed just as much as I do a regular-length novel, so props to the author for developing the plot line and characters so well! Go one-click this one! I highly recommend it! :) 4.5 stars!

Powerful CEO, Garrett Emerson’s, life and corporation are built on a foundation of risk taking and top secret priorities. He works hard, but plays even harder.

If you are a fan of Romantic Suspense | Erotic Suspense novels, drop everything and one-click CARNAL RISK now. I absolutely loved it and loved even more the fact that it kept me guessing who did what and why all throughout the book. Quite the page turner! I needed to know what would happen next, and it’s always an amazing feeling when an author manages to evoke such curiosity from me as a reader.

Garret was YUMMY. Heck, Lars was pretty yummy too, so suffice it to say I enjoyed reading about the secondary characters just as much as the main (huge plus for me!). Garret was beyond successful and quite the alpha…did I mention he was yummy? *Wink!* His business was rather unusual and very secretive. In fact, in order to work for him, you needed clearance. So, when his friend and co-worker dies mysteriously, all hell breaks loose.

Selby was a BADASS heroine. She was super intelligent and her line of work was pretty darn cool too. She handled top secret projects that required high clearance as well. So you can see how Garrett and Selby come together. Lars hires Selby to find a replacement for Evan, Garrett’s friend. An easier-said-than-done task, you see. Garrett was convinced Evan’s “accidental” death was anything but an accident, so he was very hesitant where anything Evan-related was concerned.

Now, I won’t go into any more of the details concerning the storyline because it’s FULL of twists and turns, ones you need to experience yourself. The suspenseful side of this book really kept me turning the pages and the romantic and HOT side, kept me swooning all through the very last page. Garret and Selby’s story is one a HIGHLY recommend if you’re anything like me and love an amazing romantic suspense! I cannot wait for the next installment in this series! Kym Grosso, I’M A FAN.
