n this stunningly sensual sequel to Seven Nights to Surrender, acclaimed author Jeanette Grey reunites readers with a young artist and the man who'll stop at nothing to have her . . .
EIGHT WAYS TO ECSTASY
Kate Reid's whirlwind romance with billionaire playboy Rylan Bellamy complicated her life in ways she'd worked to avoid. She'd fallen hard for his flirtatious charm and given him the one thing no other man had: her trust. Just as Kate began to imagine a future with Rylan, everything fell apart.
Now she's starting over in New York...but even the glittering streets of Manhattan can't erase the memory of Rylan knocking her off her feet and sweeping her into the most erotic, unforgettable week of her life.
It's been months, and Rylan still can't forget Kate. Months since he bared his soul at her feet. Months since he drove away the only woman to ever make him feel. Kate changed his world and now Rylan is determined to win her back-no matter what it takes. After crossing an ocean to reach her, he makes a deal with Kate: One more week, for one more chance. Now it's up to Rylan to show Kate all the ways they fit together . . . and prove that this player has met his perfect match. .
This is a book two everyone and there is no way I can do this without some sort of spoiler to what happens in book one, so if you don’t want to know what happens, go grab Seven Nights to Surrender and come back once you’ve finished!
Rylan will do everything to win Kate’s heart back, and she’d giving him one more week to prove that they fit, that the things they experienced in Paris weren’t a fluke and that they are perfect for each other. Only that proves to be harder said than done. In New York they live in two different worlds… Kate a student working and going to school and struggling to make ends meet, and Rylan, heir to a business he turned his back on, where money has never been an issue.
Kate isn’t sure she can trust Rylan and all she wants is for him to open up and share his true feelings, but after being burned his father, that isn’t as easy as it may seem.
Grey writes stories with heart and Eight Ways to Ecstasy is definitely among my favorites of hers. I just absolutely loved that we got to learn so much more about Rylan here. For as much as he was a playboy before Kate, he is 100% in and devoted to proving himself to her now, and I really thought it was amazing how much he committed himself to her… even if she kept pushing him away.
Kate frustrated me a bit because for all the times she said she was giving him a chance, I really felt that it was only on the surface that that was happening. Deep down, I felt like she wasn’t hoping she would have to put her heart on the line again. So there were times that I really was angry at her while reading because she said she would try but I truly felt she was just counting down the days until she could send him on his way… and I loved when he called her out on it.
As usual, Grey can write some amazing and beautiful and steam sexy scenes and Eight Ways to Ecstasy proves it once again. I can’t tell you all how much I love that I can count on a handful of authors to not squick me out with weird words and awkward sex. I count Grey among these!
If you’re looking for a story of second chances, a story of forgiveness and even growing up and taking responsibility… a story of finding who you’re meant to be, then you’re going to want to give this series a read. I absolutely loved it and I’m hoping we’ll see more from Grey in the way of companion books that will share Rylan’s sister’s story.
Thank you to the publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for my honest thoughts.
