Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel
Today is Steamy Saturday!
This is the day when I post a review for a book that I’ve read that is on the steamier side of romance. I’ve said it before, but I love my subscription to Harlequin Blaze! This little books are like mind candy! They can be read in a few hours and they are small enough to pop in my purse! Today’s book is an older one – from a few months ago. Enjoy!
Breaking the Rules by Tawny Weber
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
Release: Feb 2011
Source: I purchased this book to read and review
Subject: Max St. James, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class
Current Status: On leave after a year in Afghanistan.
Mission: Take some R & R. Check up on a buddy’s little sister.
Obstacle: Sophia Castillo. Independent, stubborn…and hot enough to make him forget she’s anybody’s “little sister”!
Max may be off duty, but he still has one last job to do. He’s promised to look in on—but not fool around with!—his best friend’s kid sister. Only once he meets Sophia, all thought of keeping his hands to himself go out the window.
Sophia, however, has different ideas. A recent widow, the last thing she needs is another man telling her what to do. Even if that gorgeous man leaves her drooling in a puddle of lust….
It’s a battle of wills. Who will end up on top? Max breaks every rule in the book to keep Sophia in his bed. After all, all’s fair in love and war.
And Max is counting on life with Sophia being a little bit of both.
Sergeant Max St. James is heading stateside for some leave after a year in Afghanistan, but promises to check up on one of his friend Rico’s sister. Although he’s aware that this promise seems to smell of a set up, he feels responsible for his friend being injured and wants to help him out however he can.
Sophia is the youngest of a large family of boys. She’s now a widow after years of living with a controlling man who cut her off from her friends and her family. She’s not interested in another controlling man!
This is a steamy little book. The sex is hot enough to steam up your glasses and warm those cold winter nights. The conflict between Max and Sophia is delightful to read! Throw in a controlling uncle, a whole bunch of erotic art and someone who is trying to destroy Sophia’s Art Gallery, and you have a book that is difficult to put down.
As I’ve said in the past, these Harlequin Blaze novels are hot little pieces of mind candy. Something that I can throw in my purse for a couple of hours of entertainment while sitting at the dance studio, or the skating rink, or where ever I’m waiting. This book is from the Uniformly Hot series that has recently been started at Harlequin. If all these books are this good I’ll have my Men In Uniform challenge done in no time!
