#Blog Tour Review- My Beloved (Thin Love, #1.5) by Eden Butler

My Beloved Blitz Banner
Title:  My Beloved (Thin Love, #1.5)
Author:  Eden Butler 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: December 8th 2014

Plot:   Keira Riley was the girl Kona Hale loved first, the woman he wants to love last. They’ve battled addiction, forgiven betrayal and healed from heartache, coming through it all bruised but hopeful that their future will be limitless.

Kona Hale was a blinding flame that Keira Riley gladly burned inside—his touch, his kiss, his overwhelming love, all made her dizzy, desperate and desired, made her believe in a love worth bleeding for, a love that ignites the heart with an unquenchable flame. But when you fall in love with an NFL darling who can’t seem to let go of the spotlight, sometimes even that flame can be gutted by the buffeting winds of opportunity, can be lost behind the brilliant flash of fame.

As Keira and Kona get caught up in plans for an extravagant march down the aisle, the hard won sanctuary they've found in each other's arms begins to erode. Will they be able to see through all the beckoning glitz and glamour to what they have worked so hard to build together, or will their love be lost in the spotlight?

MY BELOVED is a novella set prior to the THIN LOVE epilogue.

Hell yeah, you did, Eden! You SURE did!!

My Beloved was a treasure to be unwrapped by the talented Eden Butler!

From the exotic setting, to Kona’s Hawaiian roots which struck a familiar chord in me (*since FYI: I’m also a part Native Hawaiian originate myself and still live in Hawai’i till this day! “Kawehi,” my goodreads name is short for “Kawehilani” my middle name which means ‘Heavenly adornment’ in Hawaiian*), to watching Kona and Keira still learning to adjust to being a couple after their hefty time from being apart… it was spell-binding page-turner that left me utterly addicted for two hours and ultimately breathless and awestruck of the intricate journey that Ms. Butler has created and craftsmanship that she has delivered along the way!!

As we all know, smooth sailing was never in the DNA of what “Koira” is all about. But since when has the course of love ever been an easy feat at all, right? They are still as raw, broken, passionate, and tattered as ever… but most of all, they are two individuals looking for a new start, and are without a doubt as-- madly, entirely, haphazardly, in love with each other as they were in the beginning…wholly and irrevocably.

Author Eden Butler really knows how write a story without throwing in hells and thrills and for the sake of it gimmicks! No, she dives even deeper into Kona and Keira’s relationship and allows them really grow and appreciate the wonder of what they have that is each other, along with…. breaking down the eroded sanctuary that both characters have found in each other and what they could possibly lose if they don’t hold it close enough.

“Their lives might not always be easy, God knew it certainly had been a torturous, hazardous road….Each struggle was a lesson in learning…Taught her what mistakes to correct, which to avoid and every moment that they had been apart, every time that she had felt lonely, desperate or scared, each and every time had led her back to Kona, back to her always, to the arms of her beloved.”

#A magical and “beloved” novella that had me fist pumping and in tears!! Love, LOVED this!! ++the delightful glimpses we get of Ransom!! Can’t wait for Thick Love!!

His lips were full, that tongue so hot against her skin and Keira didn’t stop his attentions, even though they’d decided to stay hands off until after the wedding. “Kona, what are you doing?”
“Can’t you figure it out, baby?”
His voice vibrated against Keira’s neck and she closed her eyes, feeling her nipples harden when Kona pulled her earlobe between his teeth. “I thought…thought we were going to wait,” she said, unable to keep her eyes from fluttering. Kona moved his hand up her ribs, rested it just under her breast so his thumb could flick against her nipple. So he could pinch it between his fingers. “Oh God,” she moaned.
Kona didn’t remove his mouth from her neck as he picked Keira up and walked through the room to lay her on the bed. The look he gave her was primal, needy, his chest moving as he took in long, deep breaths. He looked down at Keira like he wanted to devour her. Just that look had her wet, had her laying back with her nails moving under the hem of her dress, showing Kona just a peek of her black thong. She smiled at his gruff growl. “The anticipation…”
“Fuck the anticipation.” He ripped off his jacket, popped the buttons on his shirt before he fell on top of her, threading his grip in her hair and pushing up her dress with his free hand. “Every time with you, Wildcat, every single time I taste you, feel you, is like the first time.” His fingers felt hot, left fire in their wake as Kona danced them up her thigh, right at the thin seam of her thong, releasing a breathy whine against her collarbone. “I don’t need anticipation. I’ve got plenty of it already. Every time, baby, I anticipate feeling how soft you are.” Kona’s fingernail slid under the black silk and he rubbed his knuckle against the soft skin between Keira’s legs. She stopped breathing, waiting for where he’d touch her next.
“I always need you. I always anticipate how you’ll feel around me, wanting your tight, warm pussy milking me dry.” One smooth movement and Kona had her thong off and his hand slid down, separating her wet lips. Kona pressed his thumb against her clit, rolling it until Keira’s back arched, then slipped two fingers inside of her, rubbing the walls of her core, kneading his knuckle right over that spot that never failed to leave Keira panting. Kona groaned, returned his mouth to her neck, moving his teeth, his tongue, over her pulse as he continued to move his fingers inside her. Keira let her head fall back, lost as the sensation Kona’s tongue and mouth and long, strong fingers shot through her body. Instinctively, Keira squeezed against his fingers, her hips moving in small circles as his movements increased. “Yes, baby, just like that. Squeeze me hard, stroke me with those tight muscles, love me from the inside. That’s what I always anticipate, Wildcat. That’s what you always give me.”
Keira’s sharp gasp surprised her, but not her purring when Kona went deeper. She grabbed his shoulders, pulling him down fully on top of her, her breath coming out in short pants against his lips. “Kona. Oh bebe, please fuck me.”
His only response was a low, needy growl and the lightening quick speed of his hands on Keira’s body, desperate, eager as he pulled her dress off.
“Don’t…rip…rip it.”
“Fuck that dress. That dress can go straight to hell.” He leaned up, hurried to strip himself bare before he was on top of Keira again, opening her up to him with his hands pressing down on the inside of her thighs. “That dress was in my way.”
