Elise Martin is known for her socialite status but she has
come to Chicago to show people that she isn't just a pretty
face. However, she never expected to fall back into the
hands of Lucien Lenault, her childhood crush again.
Lucien has a dominant personality. He is ruthless,
controlling and will do anything to get what he wants. When
he essentially blackmails Elise into an arrangement, the
sizzling sexual tension between them mounts until all those
years they've known each other snaps into a sensual
whirlwind of emotion. There is some emphasis of BDSM in this
novel, as well as some scenes that were thrown in for some
shock value. Kery definitely pushes her readers, wanting to
see how far they will come with her.
Although I didn't find the plot to be particularly engaging,
it was Lucien's character that I found most alluring. He is
a hard one to understand sometimes because of his ruthless
ways, but as the story goes on, you see some of the heart
hidden inside that he keeps only for Elise and I think
that's a very romantic notion.
WHEN I'M WITH YOU is wrought with sexual tension and burning
desire. Kery's writing takes hot to a whole new level.
New York Times bestselling author Beth
Keryâ€™s blistering new novel of a man and a woman bound by
the scandalous secrets of the pastâ€”and by the sexual hunger
that still fuels their uncontrollable desiresâ€¦
Out-of-control party girl and wealthy socialite Elise Martin
has come to Chicago to prove to herself and the rest of the
world that her life is truly worthwhile. But she never
dreamed sheâ€™d find herself at the erotic mercy of the
dynamic and wealthy Lucien Lenault, her girlhood crush, an
irresistible enigma who renders women powerless and
vulnerable...not to mention wholly insatiable.
But Elise isnâ€™t just any woman. Sheâ€™s used to playing with
fire, and for her, discovering Lucienâ€™s secrets is all part
of the game. What brought Lucien to Chicago with a new name
and a new identity? Who is Ian Noble, the provocative new
stranger in Lucienâ€™s shadow? And why has Lucien taken to
following him in the night?
As the two of them get deeper into a dangerous sexual dance,
Lucien canâ€™t help but wonder if the exquisite firestorm that
Elise has ignited could not only expose his secrets, but
draw him dangerously close to the edge and leave both their
futures in ashes.
