DEFINITELY and WITHOUT A DOUBT my favorite Dom by Roni Loren to date ~Under the Covers
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite erotic romance series. When I crack open a Roni Loren book I seem to always expect a very sexy read, characters with depth and a storyline that always keeps engaged while being a bit suspenseful. And that's just sexy suspense done right.
I often compare this series to Wicked Ties by Shayla Black. It's a lighter version of BDSM that say the Cherise Sinclairs and Tiffany Reisz of the world, and sometimes that's just what fits the bill. The great thing about this author is that she ALWAYS does right.
FALL INTO YOU is no different. It's hot, it's sexy, full of alpha Dominant goodness and a thrill of a story. But let me start with the hero, because I have something to say here. Bear with me.
Grant is the owner of a BDSM club, he's also a winemaker a down home cowboy. He's one of the toughest Doms at the club mainly because he doesn't think he can be in a relationship again because of his past failure at one. So I was reading this and about 30% through a friend of mine tells me to go over to Roni's blog and see who her inspiration for Grant was... *me running to the website*
I present you... Blake Shelton. This tiny little fact just increased my enjoyment of this book by like 1000, and I was loving it already. See, I have a bit of a crush on this sexy cowboy.
*sigh* Where was I? Oh yeah, the book...Do I need to tell you more about Grant? Fine, fine, I will. He's overprotective, dominant, alpha, take charge, and good with a rope. He's a successful business man too. He is DEFINITELY and WITHOUT A DOUBT my favorite Dom by Roni Loren to date. Totally puuuuurrrrrr worthy.
Then we have Charli, the heroine. I loved her from the very beginning. She's a typical tomboy that doesn't have the level of confidence because she's always been a little too plain, a little too tall, a little too flat chested, to get to where she wants in life. This affects her personal life as well as her career. She works for a TV station but they won't give her a on camera job because she's not sexy enough.
So there she goes trying to crack a case and doing some research. This research gets her in some trouble and Grant has to step in to protect her until the heat passes over. Except that she finds herself in the middle of a lot more heat than she thought she could handle. And it's all about Grant teaching her the ropes...so to speak...in BDSM training.
Got your attention yet? Although this is a plot that we see time and time again, it worked so well for Ms. Loren because her writing is amazing. She creates characters that you can't help but fall in love with and a storyline that keeps you turning the pages.
Definitely one that won't disappoint you!

Charli was a lot like looking into a mirror for me. I wont go into all of the "what does she mean?" here, but in all of my reading of books, no heroine seemed to smack me between the eyes like Charli. She is a seemingly tough as nails woman who has to come face to face with some inner doubts, and there is no one who is better suited to accept the challenge that is Charli than Grant Waters.
Grant is the -in my opinion- greatest type of hero. He is former military. Former CIA. Successful businessman. Unflinchingly dominant with his sexual desires. And, underneath his rough and ready cowboy exterior, a softie when it comes to love. Grant is more than willing and able to take Charli on.
The story revolves around Grants vineyard slash secret BDSM club that is outside of Dallas, Texas city limits. Yes, we have vineyards out here. Yes, as Charli's character is investigating, we love our football here in Texas. No, I have yet to find anything like Grant -um, his club, here in the Dallas area (but I am still searching). Ms. Loren creates such a beautiful image of these grounds on her pages that you can almost feel the Texas breeze in the air.
This story is, ultimately, a revelation about both characters. It is steamy, sexually charged, exciting, and real. What a great story to introduce 2013 with!
Although this is the third in a series, it can be read alone, but why would you want to? Do I adore this series? YES! Would I recommend it to you? YES! What are you waiting for? You know you want to...
Not realizing this was the third book in an ongoing series, Loving on the Edge, I picked up Fall Into You by Roni Loren, a new to me author. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily I was able to get invested in the characters and how much I enjoyed Ms. Loren's voice as a writer. Filled with likable characters, good dialogue and just the right touch of suspense, I found myself glued to the pages of this book.
Charli Beaumonde can't believe she's lost her chance at a TV job as a sports reporter because her boss doesn't believe she's "girly" enough for the camera. A tomboy at heart, Charli's always known she's not as attractive as most girls but figured her talent would more than make up for what she lacks in looks. Determined to prove her boss wrong, Charli begins investigating a sports scandal which turns dangerous. While not a woman who runs from adversity easily, when her life is threatened and she needs a place to hide out, Charli finds herself relying on Grant Waters, her brother's best friend.
Grant Waters knows having Charli at his "home" will be nothing but trouble. She's his best friend's younger sister and his home is "The Ranch", a BDSM resort in Texas he owns. A dominant, Alpha type man who's used to being in charge, Grant is a lonely and has a tragic past. He never thought his friend's sister would become interested in the lifestyle or want him to teach her "the ropes".
The scenes between Charli and Grant are full of incredibly chemistry and smoking hot sex. As Grant teaches Charli how to be the perfect submissive, she makes him question his decision to go through life all alone. Ms. Loren did a great job developing both Charli and Grant's characters and their emotional relationship. While Grant helps Charli deal with her issues of self doubt, Charli helps Grant face what he really wants.
A more than good story on it's own, Ms. Loren's well written addition of BDSM elements takes this romance to another level. Adding in some light touches of humor and some "Southern Charm" helps to make this a very enjoyable read. I look forward to going back and reading more of the books in this series and more of Ms. Loren's work in the future
In the previous books in this series Grant was that suave yet mysterious owner of The Ranch where the elite come to explore BDSM in secret. He was tantalizingly sexy and charming and I couldn't wait to read his story. Now that it's here, I can honestly say it was so worth the wait. Grant, along with running The Ranch, is also the owner of a prosperous winery and a former military man and CIA agent. He's seen a lot of bad things throughout those years, but nothing hurt him more than the death of his wife and child for which he's still torturing himself over. He feels guilty and doesn't think he deserves happiness so he's cut himself off from forming any meaningful connections. He also doesn't want to put his heart on the line again and thus has kept the few relationships he's had very business-like. Meeting Charli awakens his heart and mind and even though he tries to fight it he soon finds himself caught up in her web.
Charli's always been one of the boys, much to the chagrin of her mother who left her at an early age. She's tough and can take care of herself and she's an incredibly likable heroine. She's always felt like she didn't measure up though, and after losing out on a promotion, she's told she's not girly enough either. Being around Grant definitely brings out her girly side though, along with her newfound submissive side. This leads to some incredibly steamy scenes, and for a reader who doesn't read a lot of BDSM, I found them written in a way that will appeal to the naughty side of us all.
There's a nice bit of suspense surrounding Charli that's nicely intertwined with their steamy relationship that kept me guessing until the end. Not only is the suspense entertaining but seeing characters from past stories was equally satisfying. It was nice knowing that a couple's HEA extended beyond the final page and being given another tantalizing glimpse of Colby and Kade set my heart racing even faster as I count down the days until their stories are told.
Fall Into You has me falling further in love with this series and Roni Loren's writing style! These characters are emotionally hurting and seeing them heal brought tears to my eyes. This story was immensely satisfying on every level and I look forward to the next installment in Ms. Loren's sexy and suspenseful series.
