Review & Giveaway:Captivated by Megan Hart and Tiffany Reisz

I'm so excited to be part of this blog tour for
Captivated by Megan Hart and Tiffany Reisz
Read on for a review and giveaway!

Book Synopsis:

Double the passion and seduction as New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart and international bestselling author Tiffany Reisz weave two provocative tales about power, bad-boy lovers and secret desires!

LETTING GO by Megan Hart 
Colleen goes to the same bar every night and orders the same drink: a whiskey, neat. She doesn't drink it, though. Jesse the bartender notices the beautiful, sad woman who keeps to herself. Until one night when she lets go and lets him in. And after that, Jesse has only one mission--to show her one night is only the beginning.

SEIZE THE NIGHT by Tiffany Reisz 
Four years ago, a night of forbidden passion between Remi and Julien, the heirs of two powerful and competitive horse-racing families, led to a feud that is threatening to ruin both farms. Now Remi must find Julien again, but when she does, her need for Julien is just as strong and just as forbidden.

What I thought about Captivated

 The best part about an anthology is finding a new author to keep an eye on. I really liked the story from Megan Hart, titled Letting Go. Colleen's ex-husband is a jerk. He's worn her down to the point of stealing her confidence, accusing her of being too controlling to enjoy life. 

When she hooks up with bartender Jesse for a snowy weekend, she finds that "control" can be a very big turn-on, especially with a willing partner.  But when things go from hook-up to something more serious, Colleen must face her insecurities head on. 

This story felt really fresh to me, and I loved the characters, including Colleen's boss Mark when he helps her put things in perspective.  And Jesse ... he's terrific! 

Seize the Night by Tiffany Reisz is retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, using the main theme of family feud against the backdrop of Kentucky horse racing. 

When Remi suspects foul play between the two families, she must seek out Julien, her long-lost love in Paris. The attraction is still strong between them, even though their association started the feud. That doesn't stop Remi and soon they are reunited.

There's a sexy, smart-mouthed assistant and a luscious oncologist as side-kicks, along with breaking and entering, ambulances and fake marriages too! 

I loved that both of these stories had women paired with younger men and there were lovely HEA's all around.  Call me sappy, but it was a nice sweet read after a long day. I recommend reading both stories.
