As soon as I was within reach, he reached out and linked his hands around my waist. I dropped my purse to the carpet and wrapped my arms around his neck. The warmth and comfort of his arms instantly relaxed me, my body leaning into his.

It was as if Aiden was exactly what I’d been needing, even when I had no idea I needed anyone.

He was more than that, though. He had always been more than a man I would spend time with, a man I slept with. It was deeper than that. I knew that the friendship between us would last even after the physical side of our relationship eventually stopped.

“Forgot how good you smell,” he replied, pulling his head back.

“And I forgot how good you are for me in all ways.”

“You’re good for a man’s ego, Aly,” he said with a grin and a squeeze of his arms. “Now, are you gonna make me stand out here all night, or are you going to invite me in?”

“Detective Lawrence,” I said in feigned shock, holding my hand over my heart. “Shouldn’t you be warning me against inviting strangers into my apartment?”

He pulled my body hard against his, dropping his lips first to my mouth then dragging them along my jaw before he stopped just below my ear. “I’ve been inside you more times than I can count, Aly, and I still can’t get enough of you. Doesn’t that tell you something?”

Every word he said, every stroke of his fingers on my hips as he said them, sent jolts of electricity through me. My breathing sped up and my heart raced. He always had that effect on me and in that moment—and the head space I was in—it was exactly what I needed.

I turned my head and ran my tongue around the curve of his ear before sucking his lobe between my lips and letting it go. “Wanna come inside, Detective Lawrence?” I rasped.

He stepped back and bent down to pick up his duffle bag and my discarded purse. “Thought you’d never ask.”


Our Review:

***ARC received for an honest review***

“A heart that I could no longer deny now belonged to two men.”
Taste is the second part of this three-part serial and kicks off where Touch finished. This is a book of few answers and way more questions but the thing I loved the most was the mystery. Romantic suspense is how I stumbled across BJ Harvey and while I love her wit in her other series I have missed this side of her repertoire and she is sating my appetite with the Sovereign series.

BJ Harvey really stirs the pot with this one and the soup just gets thicker and thicker, with revelations that I didn’t see coming I was in total shock near the end and am now itching for Feel. Who to trust? Who to fear? It seems everyone has skeletons in their closet and some are so deep they are in Narnia. But as the plot gets more intricate so do my theories. My brain has run a mile a minute trying to piece together what may or may not be running through the mind of BJ Harvey.

I have to say I am definitely #teamfence at the moment. While both men in Alyssa’s life have their pro’s and con’s I just cannot choose between them. Each have their own endearing qualities and I have to say I would hate to be in Alyssa’s shoes…why does BJ Harvey write her men this way…to TORMENT you!!

Aiden is Alyssa’s rock, her constant, he is her sounding board and her man in times of crises and he really comes through for her in this book. He is freakin adorable. He would be her safe choice, her sensible choice. While their relationship has always been casual there are feelings involved, will Alyssa hedge her funds or will she dice with danger?

“And in doing so, the cataclysmic time bomb that had been silently ticking away in my chest was detonated, blowing everything I thought I knew it wanted into smithereens.”

On the other side you have Barrett, who we still really know absolutely nothing about, but we do see another side to him in Taste. The chemistry they have is seriously off the charts but I am torn between if this is really love or lust. However, I don’t think that his ship has sailed, while he is keeping his cards extremely close to chest I truly believe that there is a method to his madness and when those cards are revealed will he have the Royal Flush?

“The sound of the hotel room door shutting set me off as I realized that he had, in fact, left the room and left me, and proved that I was just a job after all. And that hurt more than I ever thought it would.”

Oooooo decisions decisions…which way will BJ Harvey go? For now, #teamfence and #teamAlyssa, after all, she needs all the help she can get.

Touch, Sovereign Book 1

 It started on a plane, a first class connection that spilled over into a lustful date on a rooftop.

She's very open, he's intriguingly mysterious with wicked intentions, all of which she wants directed her way.

Can she trust that feeling of heady lust that leaves her aching for his touch, or is there more to it when it comes to Barrett "Bullseye" Matthews.

Touch is part one of a new three part romance serial from USA Today Bestselling Author B.J. Harvey.

Feel, Sovereign Book 3

 Part Three and the stunning conclusion to the Sovereign Series

Coming February 10th 2016

I’m in love with two men. One came crashing into my life like a whirlwind, equal parts thrill and destruction. The other is like a calm sea, weathering the storm with me, offering me comfort and stability and promising to fight for me until the bitter end.

I have to make a decision. Who do I choose?

Barrett Matthews is a force to be reckoned with, and he has made it his mission to win me over.

Aiden Lawrence has had a piece of my heart from the very beginning and has never let me down.

Both men can make me happy; both men can keep me safe.

In the end, my heart will break whoever I choose.

My only hope is that I can survive the decision I make.
