BOOK REVIEW#- Bite & Release by Cory Cyr

BiteandRelease_ecover_RevealTitle:  Bite & Release
Author:  Cory Cyr
Publication Date: May 23rd 2014

Plot:   Ryan Chase left Fairbanks, Alaska, when she was 21 years old to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Somewhere along the way her dreams of stardom crashed and burned, along with her life.

Thirteen years later she is forced to return to Fairbanks because her unforgiving and emotionally-distant father has suddenly died. Ryan seizes the opportunity to not only escape her abusive husband but to be able to attend her best friend's wedding. What could go wrong? It's only Fairbanks, Alaska... While wishing she was anywhere but her father's funeral and wake, Ryan is struck senseless by a stunning, drop-dead gorgeous man. Her thoughts turn carnal and she desperately wants to know him in every way—and position—possible. There's only one problem...

He's the devil's spawn. He's the one who marked her for life. He's the kid she used to baby-sit. And he's hotter than hell!

Shea Michaels has loved Ryan Chase for most of his life. After surviving an unspeakable childhood, he became a man of whom she could be proud of...if she ever came back. Now that she's returned, Shea pursues her with a vengeance, undaunted by the thirteen year age difference that Ryan uses as the shield between them.

Confusion, guilt and lust bombard Ryan as she battles the memories of the little boy she used to know while still being drawn to the heart-stopping man he has become.

 My Review 

I'll admit, I'm a closet pervert. I've always had a fascination with taboo romances and this one proved to be quite thoroughly although is wasn't actually.

Take a 34 year old woman and a 21-year old male. Both are legal to get romantically and sexually involved according to U.S. regulations, right? Okay.

But now, take into account that despite their 13 year difference:
*the girl used to babysit the guy while she was a teenager and the guy was not even in the two digit age line.
*the guy has been in love with her since he was a child
+and even told her dad when he was eight years old that he was going to marry her. Heh, quite a statement, young man!

I could divulge a lot more to this plot but I'll keep it brief. Basically the just of it was just Ryan (the girl) coming to grips to her attraction with Shea (the guy) and to see him as the grown man that he is today and not the little boy she last saw him as.

Now add in: add in a jealous flame, an abusive ex-husband, Shea's meddling sister (not in a bad way that is), some parental objection, and a game changing revelation... and you got yourself a story!

My Thoughts: An over all, steamy story that, well, I greatly enjoyed. But then again, it could just be my 'pervy' side that's doing the talking for me! lol. Ryan is one lucky cougar to have such a stud panting and holding a torch for you after all of these years! And not to mention, he's a veterinarian! Gah, looks, brains, and loyal to a fault! Score!! What a jealous, jealous woman I am!

So why not a 5-star rating?: Don't get me wrong, this story was good and all but the last minute twist of the story (*in which I won't divulge*) I just flipped my lid. It was random, unneeded, and unnecessary drama. Just pointless. Hence, the deduction.

That all said, happy reading guys!

My Rating:
-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 8
-Cover : 8

 About the Author 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I began writing music and poetry at an early age. My love of music became my sole focus and I spent quite a few years as the lead singer for many local rock bands. In high school I was fascinated with the macabre and started writing science fiction and horror stories so dark they earned me the nickname "Gory Cory." After years of writing dark tales, I never thought in a million years my first two finished manuscripts would be Adult Romance. Bite & Release will be the first book published sometime in late May/early June and Reviving Haven; my second book will be released at the end of July. The themes of both books are older women/younger men and are for 18+ due to language, sexual situations and subject matter. Both are stand alone with no cliffhanger.
