I like to do these ‘Top Ten Reasons to Read’ posts when I read an erotic book that I would recommend. Sometimes I go months without finding a good book for a post like this, but this month I’ve read two! Today I’m talking about Keep Me Closer by Rhyannon Byrd. This is the first I’ve read by her and I was shocked at how dirty this hero is. He is also possessive, controlling (sometimes too controlling), and a big asshole. Ginorumous asshole. Just putting that out there. But in a guilty pleasure kind of way, he worked for me. The author just goes for it – and I liked that. She holds nothing back. Oh – there is a heroine too! Her name is Brit and she is a therapist who is being stalked by a very mentally ill client. Alex is a PI who is forced to keep an eye on her (Brit is BFF with Alex’s brother’s wife) . These two hate each other at first but then they kiss and realize it’s more fun to get into each other’s pants than hate each other. I read this book in one sitting and was pretty entertained. One more thing to note, the kindle price is $7.99 which is a bummer, because I think that is pretty pricey. But I still want to rec it and talk about. So here we go.
Please note the quotes below are quite explicit.
10. We’ll start with a warm-up quote. Ease our way in. Their first kiss….
He took her mouth like he owned it. Like he wanted to violate and possess it in every way known to man. Take whatever he wanted from it. From her. It was that aggressive. That outrageously devastating. If he fucked like he kissed, she was surprised women weren’t lining up around the block from his condo, begging for his attention.
9. How about some hot staring…
She lowered her smoldering gaze to his boots, then slowly ran it up his body, taking her time, taking him in, and bit her lip when she got to his crotch, the denim of his jeans bulging as it tried to contain his erection. She lingered there for so long he started to sweat, his muscles twitching, and then she made her way up to his abs, and he thanked God for every grueling hour he spent working to keep his body in shape.
He pulled back, his gaze roaming over every inch of her upper body, his mouth wanting to be everywhere at once as he ripped at the buttons on his jeans, in such a hurry he nearly tore one off. Shoving them over his hips with his boxers, he heaved a ragged groan of relief when his dick sprang free, swollen nearly to bursting and almost embarrassingly brutal-looking, with its thick veins and ruddy coloring, more than ready to bury itself in what was sure to be its newest favorite place.
7. We are now entering the penis portion of the list. There is much worshiping, much praise.
With her heavy-lidded gaze locked on his dick, she breathed out, “I want to touch it first.”
He hissed a curse through his teeth, then groaned her name, wondering why everything felt so different with her. So…raw and exciting, when he’d though he’d already experienced everything there was to experience when it came to sex.
“Please,” she whispered, his damn heart nearly stopping as she reached out and grasped him with both hands, pulling the rigid shaft away from his body. “It’s gorgeous and I want to hold it for a moment.”
(have I mentioned how much I love this book?)
6. I honestly don’t know how Alex carries his massive peen around with him all day. It’s tough work, y’all!
She was petting him, tracing the thick veins with the delicate tip of her finger, then testing the girth to see if she could wrap her fingers around him, which she couldn’t. And, Christ, that only made him thicker, seeing how huge he looked in her delicate grip. Yeah, he knew his dick was bigger than a lot of women had seen, but he’d never had a woman who looked as if she so thoroughly appreciated the way he was built. Not just the size, but the whole fucking package. Literally.
5. After discussing birth control, and the fact that Brit is on the pill and they are both clean, Alex has a huge sigh of relief – whew…good thing because….
“Cushioned and tight and slick. I want to feel you on my skin. Want to feel you from the inside out more than I’ve ever wanted any goddamn thing in this world. And I swear I’m not feeding you a line. I mean every word.” Lifting his head so he could see her face, he asked, “So you with me? Or do I need to grab my wallet?”
For a moment, she stared back at him as if to say this was total madness. But then her lips parted, and he heard her murmur, “No..I’m…I’m with you.”
“Good.” He pulled his fingers back and aimed his cockhead right for her swollen, slippery vulva. “Because I’m about to fuck you so hard, I don’t think a rubber could have taken it.”
Good lord hold on tight Brit.
“Shh. Just let me in and relax. It’ll be okay. Better than okay.”
She gave an adorable laugh that was choked. “That’s easy for you to say. You’re not the one getting crammed full of massive penis right now.”
3. Clean up on aisle two!
“”Huh,” he grunted. “Look at that.”
“What?” she wheezed, concentrating on not falling on her ass.
There was a deliciously raw, husky edge to his voice as he said, “The floor is wet. My cum’s dripping out of you.”
“Oh, God.” He was right, it was. And it was so freaking sexy.
(this turns on Alex so much that he immediately gets hard again and he decides to “blast you full of more” )
2. The sex is so good, staying conscience could be a problem.
The raw intensity of his climax shot her into another one, and this time Brit couldn’t help but scream as her body got caught up in the crashing waves of heat and sensation, until she was so overwhelmed she couldn’t even make a sound. For endless moments, everything was dark and primal and silent, and when she finally blinked her eyes open, she was surprised to find the front of her body plastered against the glass, Alex’s muscular form slumped heavily against her back.
Holy hell. Did I just pass out? She bit her lip to hold back a giggle, then sobered as something occurred to her. The man had nearly killed her just now with intense sexual pleasure, and he hadn’t even touched her breasts or her clit.
1. And let’s leave on this note, because why not?
“Jesus Brit. I want to fuck you so hard,” he breathed out, his hands flexing around her things.
“You already have.”
A raw, thick sound rumbled deep in his chest, and she could feel him shake his head. “Not like that. I want to harder than before. I want to tie your gorgeous ass down and fucking own you. Drench you in me, in my sweat and my cum, until I seep in your pores.”
He goes on…but you get the picture, right?
Fun book you guys.
