Ethan Review- Nicole Edwards: 1/10/14


Ethan by Nicole Edwards
Published: January 7, 2014
Alluring Indulgence #5


Talk about an intense read! I absloutely loved it and it was far from my normal read. This is my first M/M Romance, and it was well worth waiting for. I read Travis and Kaleb but they had women involved in their relationships too so it was not the same as the fire that was Ethan and Beau in this book! Typical of a Nicole Edwards book, there is a huge amount of very hot sex, but there is also a great backstory and heartbreaking revelations about both men's pasts that make you just want to grab them up and hug them.

Similar to all Walker Brothers, Ethan is a take no prisoners kind of bad ass, with a large, muscular frame and hot temper to match. Once his first love turned him off of every looking for that closeness and intimacy again, Ethan has shut down his heart and any opportunity Beau may have been looking for to get inside and get close to Ethan. Even after they share a passionate kiss on Christmas, Ethan will not allow Beau to get close to him and it is a struggle for them both to grasp what they each want and need from the other.

This book deals with a lot of issues, emotions and history and is not a quick and light read. Be prepared to be swept away. I highly recommend this book and give it an enthusiastic 5 stars. Easily. <3 Kellie


Ethan is part of the Alluring Indulgence series (#5), however, this book was written to be read as a stand alone book as well.

How long did it take you to find your place in the world?

For Ethan Walker, going through the motions of life, keeping his distance and never getting attached has become the mantra he lives by. Success is measured by how many hours he can work and how little attention he can draw. That was until he landed on Beau Bennett’s radar. Until Beau, Ethan had never met a man who could get him to question his own logic and even consider taking a different path.

Beau Bennett knows exactly who he is - now. It might’ve taken him some time to figure it out, but now that he has his bearings, Beau has set his sights on the mysteriously sexy Ethan Walker. Pursuing someone has never been his style, but something is telling him to keep at it because the end result is going to be worth it.

Now that they’ve found one another, how long will it take Ethan and Beau to accept that their place in the world is... Together?

Warning: This book contains sexual encounters and graphic language that some readers may find objectionable, including, but not limited to: m/m encounters, anal sex. Contains graphic material that is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Teaser

"Baby," he murmurs, holding firm to my upper arms. "Don't screw me around."

Squirming, I glare at him boldly. "I'm not screwing you around, Cole. You should know I'm not like that." "Yes you are. You've been mind fuckin' me from the moment you walked into this joint. Don't go acting all innocent and shit. You know exactly what you've been doing." "Is that how you think of me?" The leather of his jacket creaks as he leans in close to speak into my ear. So close that I can feel his lips as they brush against my lobe as he whispers. "That's exactly how I think." "Then call me a prick tease and fuck off. I don't want your dick anywhere near me." Chuckling, he shakes his head slowly. "Push me away all you want. But you're mine and you know it. You were mine the moment I saw you. I know you Maddie. You don't think anyone can know you. But I do." "You don't know shit," I grumble, placing my hands on his chest in a bid to push him away. "Baby," he warns, overpowering me as he moves to slide his arms around my waist, pulling me, roughly, up against him. "No more pushing me away, baby." His voice drops to a sexy murmur as his hands slide down to grip my arse. "No more screwing around." I try to keep my wits about me. I don't need this. I don't need him. Even if he is super fucking hot. "I'm not interested in you, Cole!" "Then why are you panting like a fucking bitch in heat?" I pull my head back, an unimpressed look upon my face - that comment just made it easier for me to say no. "A Bitch in heat? Is that how you get chicks to drop their panties?" Gripping my arse a little tighter, he looks into my eyes, grinning that ridiculously sexy grin of his. "I actually like to let my tongue do the convincing." "Of course you do, and then you fuck them senseless. I've heard them screaming at night," I bite out, sarcastically. "Babe, I think it's time you let my tongue convince you." My fingers gently brush the leather of his jacket as the image of him between my legs fills my mind. I shake it off. "In your dreams buddy." "Every night since I met you, baby. Every fucking night."

Synopsis

The last thing Holly Harris expected was to wind up nineteen, knocked-up, and all alone. When Coop left to pursue his dreams of becoming a rock god, he left a tiny piece of him behind.

Holly wishes he hadn’t.

Jackson wishes he hadn’t.

Jackson Rowe tried filling the void his family left by drinking, screwing around, and leaving a string of heartbroken women in his wake. Moving back to Sugartown should have been easy, but he hadn’t counted on the fact his sometimes attraction to Holly would still be alive and kicking—and he sure as hell hadn’t counted on her being pregnant with another man’s baby.

They drive one another crazy, and yet they can’t stay away.

When old flames resurface, and even older wounds are torn open, can two people so similar make it work? Or will their stubbornness only drive them further apart?

*Content Warning. Intended for a mature 18+ audience. Contains angst, a crap-tonne of profanity, short-tempered Australian wildlife, and some very pregnant sex.

 
Excerpt
Holly “We gonna talk about last night?” “No. We’re not going to talk about it. We’re not going to have a repeat performance, and we’re not talking about it.” “Okay then.” Jackson snatches up another handful of popcorn and shovels it in his mouth before chewing with it half-opened. I swear, one day I’m going to shove my fist in there, and then maybe he’ll learn to shut the hell up. “So you don’t want me to eat you out right here on the couch?” I drop the bowl and popcorn spills out all over my lap. I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and whisper, “I hate you.” “No you don’t. You want to, but sweetheart, you got all kinds of feelings for old Jack, and none of them are based on hatred.” “Would you please not refer to yourself as old Jack? You sound like a paedophile.” “Night, Hols. Old Jack’s going to take a shower before hitting the hay. I might even forget to lock the door so you don’t have to kick it down.” “I hate you!” I scream as he saunters away chuckling. “Sure, sweetheart, you just keep telling yourself that.”

Just when things start to fall into place, they all seem to fall apart and the one person they think they can trust turns out to be the one to hurt them the most.

Review


Loved it! This is not a rock star love story, this is a good old mobster drama with a rock/love story sprinkled in. If you read Lifeless (which you should have before My Beautiful) then you know how it ended and this book seamlessly picked up right there, which I appreciate. Trying to remember what happened in a previous book or having to re-read several chapters of the last one again both suck so this was perfect transition from book one to book two. Jenn has a way of telling a story that gives you a clear vision of the characters and the back story like you are watching the book play out on film. I cannot wait to read more from her. 

Scarlett's abrupt ending to her relationship with Kade in LIfeless left us yearning to find out what happens with them and if Kde is able to leave behind the mob life he was born into and dragged back in as an adult. Like I said, Kade being a rock star was just a side note compared to the real story of crime, violence, gang life and murder that Kade is forced into to protect his friends and especially to save Scarlett. I loved the book, the series, the characters and the way it all ended. I highly recommend it and give it 5-stars all the way. <3 Kellie

Excerpt
I slowly walked up to her, lifting my hand up to caress her cheek. “I still can’t believe I’m here with you.” “Me too,” she sighed as she leaned into my hand. Lifting my other hand, I ran my fingers through her hair. I pulled the elastic band out and grasped her hair into my fist, then my mouth was on hers. She let out a soft moan as our lips finally connected, our tongues teasing and our teeth biting. My breaths were coming rapidly and I couldn’t contain my own hums of approval as she explored my body with her hands. Letting my hands drop, I found the tie that held her robe closed. I untied it and pulled it apart. My hands started to do their own exploring; it didn’t take long until I discovered she wasn’t wearing anything underneath. I groaned and my cock twitched. I was now hard as a rock. I had to slow down before it was over faster than it started. I wanted to savor every moment. Slowly, I pulled my lips away and looked at her beautiful face. Her cheeks were flushed and her lips swollen and red. Just the sight of her in front of me all flushed and breathing heavily with her robe gaping open, made me want to throw her on the bed and fuck her into oblivion. But it would be over too soon for me. I wanted to taste every inch of her. Memorize every curve of her body, every moan that escaped her lips. I wanted to make her come until she begged me to stop. Only then would I succumb to my own needs. I lifted my hands up to her shoulders and gently pushed the robe back making it fall in a lump at her feet. “Go lay on the bed and spread your legs for me.” She hesitated for only a second. I said I would let her have control, but tonight I needed it. I had no control over anything else in my life at that moment, so right then, I needed the control. Especially after the night I had. I walked to the end of the bed as she got comfortable, resting her hands on her sides as she spread her legs for me. I could see goose bumps on her body as she bit her lower lip and gazed at me with hooded eyes. She was wet for me and I licked my lips in anticipation. I had to hold myself back from diving right in. Not once did I go down on anyone else while Scarlett and I were apart. Her taste and her smell were burned into my receptors and I didn’t want anything else to fuck that up. And right then, I needed a little reminding.
