Blog Tour: Review & Giveaways ~ Travis (Alluring Indulgence 3) by Nicole Edwards @NicoleEAuthor

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 hot, sexy, Travis Walker stars

“You don’t want me to want you?”

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love anything Nicole Edwards, I rant and rave about her books all the time and am anxious for each new release. Even though she churns these books out at the rate of knots the quality just gets better and better as her writing evolves, so it was with bated breath that I waited for Travis. After all the snippets and teasers that had been released I was sooooo looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed!!!!

This review is going to be very hard to write as we have been asked to keep certain aspects of the book secret so as not to spoil for you all readers that are still to read this amazeballs installment of the Alluring Indulgence series but I will try to keep my lips sealed and try to convey how great this book was.

I maybe in the minority in saying this was not my favourite of hers but it does come very close!! Travis is the oldest of the Walker brothers, he is quiet, keeps himself to himself but is extremely authoritative. He needs to be though as he runs Walker Construction, the company that his brothers run together and this is the company that is currently building the Alluring Indulgence Resort. During this book, the resort is beginning to take shape and by the end of the book is complete.

This book centers round the love life of Travis. During all the books, including the Club Destiny series we have never seen Travis with anyone in particular, he has never been seen to have a relationship, he frequents Club Destiny, but what do we know about him???? He is the man of mystery which makes his story even more intriguing. Who is Travis Walker?? Well, we find out in this book. There is something hidden behind those eyes and it is sadness, Travis Walker needs to be loved but he has only ever loved one other, can he find love again??

This book is emotional, there were times when I was choked…Travis showing his softer and emotional side was extremely endearing to read about. It was hard for him to open up, but when he did the floodgates opened. The same goes for the other party in this book, emotion was prevalent as was the dominating testosterone that was Travis Walker. The sex scenes in this book in true Nicole style were hot, the first scene in the shower was smoking off the radar and could have easily made my kindle combust, I thought it may have had to go in the freezer at one point to cool down. But seriously after 40% and the foundations for his story have been laid, this book heats up…seriously heats up and you will need a fan!! The man of mystery is unveiled in this book and his story has been told beautifully right down to the bare bones. The relationship as it develops just gets better and better, you feel it building, you can feel it getting stronger and you can’t help but warm to it.

Here is one of my favourite quotes, I would have done more and a few others but they would have given away too much :-) :-

“It’s no biggie,” Zane answered in all seriousness. “It looks like Travis’ personality transplant is permanent, and we were just getting the goods on who performed the surgery so we can buy them a gift to show our appreciation. You know, like a house.”

See, from the above even the family notice how “love” has changed Travis.

Once again Nicole, amazing, I love this series and Club Destiny and the crossover is working so well. Love it Love it Love it!!!

About the Author:
About me... hmmm...

Ok, I've been asked to provide a little bit of "real" information about myself. That's harder to do than you think it is, especially for someone who has difficulty talking about themselves. ;) But, here goes...

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a kid, I loved creative writing and as I got older, I got acquainted with those voices in my head and that led to putting my stories on paper. And now, here I am all these years later, spending my days doing what I love most. I decided to give myself over to writing full time in 2012 and I haven't looked back. I spent nearly 13 years in the corporate world and I have to say, this is a bit of a change (just a little) and I am loving every second of it.

I live in Texas with my husband and three amazing kids and our two beloved dogs. If I'm not writing, I'm usually reading. I devour everything I can get my hands on. I love romance of any type and being an Indie author myself, I'm always looking for new Indies to support. I haven't always been into reading, but about eleven years ago, I picked up a book - I'm pretty sure it was by Nora Roberts - and from there, I haven't stopped. Before I began writing full time, and my characters started taking up so much of my time, I was reading about 200 books a year. That has dwindled somewhat, but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't read.

An interesting fact... I don't watch television - aside from the occasional news anyway. I will go see a movie or two rarely, but for the most part, I get all of my entertainment from a book. Some of my favorite authors include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Lora Leigh, Jane Rylon, Lori Foster, and Jaci Burton just to name a few.
