Rapturous  – Marie Force 

Quantum Series, book 4

HTJB, Inc (January 19, 2016)



Control is his mantra…until one woman breaks his control—and his heart.

It’s Oscar night, and Academy Award-winning director Hayden Roth spontaneously kisses the woman he desires above all others, even though he knows she can never be his. Addison York craves her boss’s best friend, Hayden, but he has never given her an ounce of encouragement–until tonight when he kissed her after winning the Oscar. Was that kiss the start of something or another in a long line of frustrations where Hayden is concerned? Something is keeping him from acting on the attraction that simmers between them, and Addie is determined to find out what it is. But when she stumbles upon the secret that Hayden, Flynn and her other close friends have kept from her, will she allow hurt feelings to get in the way of true love? When Hayden won’t share his BDSM lifestyle with her, Addie decides to conduct her own research. Will she be intrigued or repulsed? And what will Hayden do when he finds out how she’s been spending her evenings?

Warning: If you hate foul-mouthed heroes who like it a little rough and dirty, this might not be the book for you…. Contains hot and sexy BDSM scenes among other things that might not appeal to the faint of heart. Enter at your own risk and enjoy the sensual indulgence of Hayden and Addie’s steamy story!”

Now INCLUDES a TAME version of Rapturous IN THE BACK of the STEAMY version!




The unexpected kiss that ignites a 10 year attraction

The attraction between Addison and Hayden has been simmering for the past 10 years. The unexpected kiss Hayden gives her when he wins the Oscar for Best Director, has Addie determined to pursue him. Hayden has fought his attraction to Addie, she’s his best friend and business partner’s super-efficient assistant. Hayden doesn’t do relationships, feelings, or romance. He also lives a super-secret life and is unwilling to bring Addie into it. Once she finds out about it, Addie is just as determined to be prove to him that she can handle it and wants to be introduced to that lifestyle even if it means going elsewhere to be trained.

This is the 4th book in the Quantum Series and I feel they should be read in order for the backstory. The writing is done in first person point of view and is smoothly done between the characters. Hayden was not a favorite character of mine in the previous books, but Marie has a track record of making us change our minds about some of her characters. I loved how Hayden fought against his feelings and the conflict he felt. I loved how feisty Addie was portrayed and how determined she was to get what she wanted. I love how the characters live this secret lifestyle parallel to leading their famous lives.
