A NEED SO INSATIABLE (Hearts #1) by Cecilia Robert

Genre(s): New Adult, Musician, Erotic, Contemporary Romance

Published: March 8th 2014

 

“You’ve owned me from the moment I walked into that music room. You’ve wrapped yourself in my heart and mind. I can’t get you out. I don’t want to.”
~ Rafael Van Rees
Sophie Fisher’s life is on fire. If she’s not ducking around corners or slipping out of windows to escape the debt collectors her father’s death has left knocking on her door, she’s dealing with her rebellious, fifteen-year-old sister, Lilli. And, as if that’s not enough, Rafael Van Rees crashes into her life—literally—bringing with him a past the public has no idea of. Can she unravel his mysteries before he unravels her, or will his presence finally force her to face the demons she’s trying to outrun?
Rafael Van Rees prides himself on being in control of his destiny, music and women. As far as he is concerned, his past is a black cloud in the distance–until he meets Sophie, that is, and his world spins out of control in more ways than one. He knows the darkest sins and secrets eventually reveal themselves, but when it comes to Sophie, he’ll stop at nothing to protect her from his past. Even if it kills him.

There was quite a bit of heat and passion between Raphael & Sophie. While the love portion of this book was really good I had trouble accepting the past Raphael was hiding. It was so far out from his current life that it seemed a bit far fetched for me. Sophie was a really great character. Sweet, but strong. Having overcome rebellious teen years and now being guardian to her teen sister, she had come a long way to being a responsible adult now providing for her Sis and recovering from a mountain of debt left behind by her father, she finds herself being threatened only moments after having the most intense moment with her biggest crush.

Raphael Van Rees wasn’t as much of a believable character as I’d hoped. He was passionate and completely devoted to Sophie but I just didn’t fall in love with him.

This is a good read and I did enjoy it, I just didn’t fully connect emotionally with it. I would like to say that I would be intrigued in knowing more about Sophie’s friend Dani and Raphael’s friend Hawk. That’s a story, I’d like to see.  I was extremely curious about Dani’s behavior and hope to learn her reason behind it.

I stalk toward the car, my fists twitching at my sides. Another thud comes from the house. The image of her wrapped in someone’s arms is replaced by one that entirely chills my blood. I change directions and dash across the lawn to the front door. It’s locked. I lift my foot to kick it in, but pause when I hear sounds coming from the backyard. I round the corner, scanning the area. Two large backpacks lay on the lawn. A smaller one tumbles to the ground beside them. I jerk my gaze up, trailing it along the rope dangling from the roof.
What the fuck?
Sophie leans out a window on the second story, grabs the rope, murmuring under her breath, and wraps her booted legs around it, sliding down expertly. I groan, readjusting the front of my jeans as I watch her curvy ass descend. I move to stand below the window and wait, my hands ready and twitching. Who said stalking doesn’t have its benefits?
“What are we rehearsing for? Grand Theft House, or this is just a nightly thing?”
She squeals, flailing, and plunges into my arms, cursing words that have my ears burning. I let her squirming body slide against mine until her feet touch the wet grass.
I duck my head, leveling my lips to the shell of her ear. “Ladies don’t curse.”
She shivers, and whirls around to face me, her eyes on fire and her cheeks flushed. “If you haven’t noticed, I’m nowhere close to a lady. What the fuck are you doing here?”
“Saving you from breaking that pretty little neck.”
She stomps to the backpacks and picks them off the ground. “I don’t need saving.” One bag goes over her shoulder, the other around her chest.
“What’s with the Sedan outside?”
Her hands stop adjusting the smaller bag, and she sways as she tries to balance the extra weight. “They’ve been watching my house since my dad passed away.” She starts to walk toward the bushy fence on her right.
“Where are you going?”
“To my Honda.”
“In the bushes?” She ignores me, and walks off. I grab her arm and spin her around. I’m not in the mood to argue. If Josef called Kravic to tell him I was hanging around, we might be sitting ducks right now. “We need to talk. Now.”
She frowns. “I’m staying at Jace’s, and need to get back before everyone gets nervous.” Her gaze darts around. She licks her lips before looking up at me.
“They’ll be fine. Trust me. I have someone watching their flat. Look, I know about the people following you and Lilli around.”
She stumbles back, her eyes wide. “Wha–how did you know? Did Jace tell you? Oh my God, she did, didn’t she? I’m going to kick her ass from here to Russia.”
I step forward, grabbing her shoulders. “Stop freaking out, Sophie. Jace didn’t tell me anything.” She tries to shake herself from my grip, but I don’t let her go. “There’s so much I want to tell you, but we need to leave, okay? Trust me.”
“Not now–”
“Damn it, Sophie, listen to me! I know these men. They’re not here because they want to play house with you.”
“Of c–wait a second. You know them?”
Shit! This is not how I wanted to explain things. I nod once. I’m already balls deep into my confession. No point in trying to deny it now.
She studies me, and, for just a moment, I see fear reflected in her eyes. “And you want me to trust you, Rafael? How the fuck am I supposed to do that?”
She abruptly wiggles out of my hands, and darts toward the front of the house, dropping the backpacks.
“Damn it all to hell!” I tear after her, scooping her up before she rounds the corner. She shrieks,  flailing her legs and arms, trying to dislodge my hold. One foot hits my balls. “Fucking hell! Stop that right now.” I growl in her ear.
Of course, she doesn’t. Clenching my jaw, I drop to the ground, making sure my body takes the impact, then flip around so she’s on her back. I pin her arms to the ground.
“Are you trying to castrate me? Seriously, Sophie, stop this struggling shit right now.”
“Let go of me you, you–”
“Sophie.”
She stops, glaring up at me. Tears swim in her eyes, reflecting the moonlight. She blinks hard, as if to push back the tears. Our ragged breathing fills the quiet night.
“Are you ready to listen to me?”
She swallows, and nods. I wait until I feel her body relax beneath mine, then ease my hands off her arms, and unpin her legs from my thighs. Her knee jerks up, toward my groin, and I tilt my hips fast.
“Bloody hell!” I grab her biceps, let my body drop onto hers, and capture her mouth with mine, swallowing her yelp.
Christ, she tastes like fire and tears and fear. Her mouth is the most fantastic thing I’ve ever tasted. Her bunched muscles relax beneath my fingers as a whimper rushes through her mouth. Pulling back, I nip her jaw, tracing a path to her ear and running my tongue over its outline.
“You taste so damn good, Sophie. Want to kick me again?”
She doesn’t answer. I pull back, quirking a brow at her. Fuck, she’s so beautiful with her flushed cheeks and plump, sweet lips.
She shakes her head.
“Good.” I brush that little dimple on her chin with my fingertips. “Trust. Me.”
She bites the corner of her bottom lip and nods. “This talk had better be good, or I might stab you while you sleep.”
I write YA, NA and Adult. My motto: Passion rules. I enjoy writing stories about people finding love in the most unexpected places, coupled with adventurous journeys, whether it’s urban, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary or paranormal romance. 
 
There’s always a happy ever after, no matter how long it takes to get there.

A note from the author
 
I’m a big fan of beautiful covers. I also believe that covers go a long way in getting a book noticed by buyers. I love ALL my covers, but sometimes it’s not easy for me to find an image that gives me the feel for the story. Sounds pretty weird, huh?..LOL
 
In the last few months, I’ve changed the cover for A Need So Insatiable twice, trying to find the right feel for the book. Recently, I did a small poll between the current cover (the model in a suit)  and an older version (the couple). As much as the majority loved the brooding male on the cover, they also loved the one featuring a couple. I decided to go back and change it to see how the response would be. I’m quite happy with this one too, I love the male model’s expression.  Plus, just look at how he’s holding her, and where her hand is on his neck? **swoon**
 
What do you think of the new cover?

REVIEW

Insane relative, possessive biker prez and one tough “old lady”. – I love this series,

Megan aka Meggie has proven her strength before but with each situation she finds herself in, she shows her strength knows no bounds when it comes to her husband and MC prez, Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell. While she juggles being a new mother, a wife and the duties of trying to care for the MC club and its bikers, she has now taken the task of putting together her dream wedding.

If the stress of all that wasn’t enough, now there is a rival biker stalking and threatening her to get to Christopher. Meggie proves that she can be strong and fragile. The MC life isn’t her ideal, but she loves Christopher so much she is willing to stand by his side through everything and support him no matter what.

These two truly have an intense connection/relationship that would put so many others to shame. The personalities of these characters is so tangible that I can truly see them and their mannerisms in my head. I get a kick out of Outlaw. His colorful use of the English language just cracks me up and keeps everything very entertaining. He has such a strong and intense personality.

The Death Dwellers MC is one of my favorite MC series. To me, the story lines, plots and characters are up there with similar well known and very popular series such as The Undeniable series and The Reapers MC.

Blurb

I tried hard not to fall for the bad guy.

My new roommate, Blake, is a jerk—an unemployed artist with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t stand him unless his hands are on me. He makes me desperate for him, and everything he makes me feel.

And then there’s my new boss, Pierce–successful, charming, and extremely good-looking. He goes after what he wants, but what does he see in me?

I try to stay away, but I end up in the arms of exactly who I was hiding from. And when I find out what’s being hidden from me, my heart twists in ways it never should.

I thought I knew him.

I didn’t.

The way he kissed me.

The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin.

I thought it meant something, but as it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.

Seven Sons (Book One) *See where it all began*

*Please note this book is dark romance and deals with serious themes including rape, violence and murder.*

This story unfolds over seven volumes approx. 25 – 30,000 words each.

My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I’m out for revenge.

But I didn’t expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn’t expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I’m faced with an impossible choice – Jase, or avenging my fathers death?
