Really, really, really good! REIGN OVER ME isn't in the usual genre that I read, but I'm thinking I've been reading the wrong genre! Excellent plot, vivid, well-developed characters, immediately engaging, fast paced and wicked hot. Lots of dog-eared pages in this one!
The Covenant, 1
Geeky girl Isabel never imagined herself as a badass biker babe … but when her family’s troubles send her to the Aces Motorcycle Club, she is thrown deep into biker domain. While pretending to be a club whore, Isabel finds herself at constant odds with the club’s rough yet sexy vice president.
Rem’s toughened exterior is the product of years in the Marines and then as his club’s VP. He knows that Isabel doesn’t belong in this world, but he can’t help the desire that seems to grow everyday she is near. He wants her innocence to soothe his soul and her sweet curves to soothe the ache in his body.
Their differences only fuel the fire as they come together in an epic way. But unknown enemies are circling the club, threatening their newfound passion with dangerous secrets. Will they learn to trust love and each other? Or will doubt tear them apart?
Be Warned: forced seduction, public exhibition, menage sex (MFM), double penetration
I stopped where I was and turned slowly to face Rem again. I heard the door close, leaving me alone with him. He stalked toward me, and fear rolled through me at the look on his face, somewhere between anger and lust. While I knew he would never hurt me, I couldn’t help being scared. After all, he was a powerful man, more than capable of causing harm. I moved backwards as he came closer, and I felt the pool table hit my backside.
My fear made my hands spring up in defense. "Rem."
"Quiet,” he said, and then he grabbed me and spun me around to bend over the table. I swung my arms back at him, but it only made it easier for him to pin both my wrists to the small of my back.
"Enough of this bullshit. We tried things your way. Now it’s time for my way," he said, his voice low and rumbling.
Before I knew it, Rem had one hand holding my wrists and the other was bunching my skirt around my waist. Then I felt a hand on my panties, and I only had time for small yelp before he ripped away the crotch.
The open air against my center made me wriggle and I looked over my shoulder to scream at him, but what I saw stopped the sound in my throat.
The way Rem was looking at my pussy was feral and ardent. His eyes were intense but focused and his upper lip pulled back to show clenched teeth, like a wolf ready to bite. A rough palm cupped my ass gently, and my skin tingled under the contact.
After a moment, he looked up to my face, and I could see the beast in his eyes, angry and possessive. I stilled under his gaze, suddenly feeling languid, like my body was ready to surrender to his.
Next thing I knew his hand was smacking my ass, hard. It was a real spanking, not some playful petting, three times in a quick succession.
I cried out. The pain was searing.
"Rem, please stop."
He stopped, but his hand stayed on my ass, cupping the cheek he just lit on fire.
"What was that for?" I screamed at him and tried to wiggle loose again.
"That was for flirting with other men,” he growled through his clenched teeth. “And this is for sending Jessica to my room."
Then he gave three more violent slaps to the other cheek.
"Rem, please.” I didn't understand why he was spanking me, but more importantly, I didn't understand why each one was like an electric shock to my nipples and pussy.
He was rubbing that cheek now. "Come on, babe. You are a smart girl. You know exactly what this is about." His fingers wandered gently to the edge of my sex. My eyes widened, and I froze in place. Was he going to touch me? My rational brain told me to keep fighting, but my body didn’t want to fight. With his touch, the languid feeling had returned. It wanted to hold still for his hand, and that’s exactly what I did. I put my head down on the table and simply breathed as I felt his callused fingers stroking closer to my center.
But I was still confused. “I thought you didn't like me like that,” I said as I looked back at him.
The anger still burned bright in his eyes, and he gripped my wrists tight in his hand. "Are you fucking kidding me? Do you think I take the time to talk to a woman … ever?"
"I thought you were just being niii—” His fingers found my clit, and I gasped, fighting for air as Rem touched me where no one had touched me before. "Oh, God." I closed my eyes and let the sensation flow through me. His touch was gentle, but I could feel the roughness of his fingers, rough from real work. The thought only turned me on more.
"No, darling. I wasn't being nice. I want inside this pussy. I've wanted to possess you since the moment I saw you." His fingers pressed harder against my center, and I felt his thumb play at my entrance. I could feel the wetness gathering, and I was feeling an ache from deep within. "Now I'm through with this courting bullshit. I tried to do this the right way, but it's clear you need a good, hard fucking to get through to you."
His thumb was right at my entrance, and I arched my back as much as I could. I groaned as my inner muscles started aching for something more.
In that moment, lust completely consumed my mind. I was so ready to be taken, to be owned. I didn't care how he was doing it. In fact I loved this brutal part of him. This was my fantasy for the past week coming true.
"That's it, baby. Show me how much you want me inside you."
I moaned like a wanton slut and pushed back at him. Rem removed his thumb, and his two fingers that were toying with my clit slid an inch up to push inside me. I whimpered as my muscles clamped around him, finally giving them something to hug. It felt so good I went up on my toes to get his fingers deeper. Rem pushed my hips back down with the hand that still held my wrists behind my back. "Keep still and take what I give you."
My body answered his words with another rush of moisture. He was my master in every way. Fortunately, he showed me mercy and let his fingers go deeper. I groaned into the table. I felt his fingers move in exploration, as if he was looking for something. My panting filled my ears as he took his time.
"There it is," he said after a few moments. He rubbed at something inside me. "There's that sweet cherry." I opened my eyes and looked over my shoulder at him, silently begging him to take it. "I thought I would break it with my fingers, but looking at you now I want to break it over my cock.”
I bit my lip and begged him with his eyes.
I whimpered as his fingers left me to attack his belt. I was leaning over too far to see, but I suddenly felt something warm and hard prodding my slick folds.
"Rem," I whispered, suddenly scared. I did want this, but it was happening so fast.
He looked away from our bodies to my eyes.
"Baby, everything is all right." He released my hands slowly and laid them on the table by my head. Then his fingers slid on top of mine and I felt his chest against my back. His lips nuzzled my ear. "You are mine now, and I take care of what’s mine."
I loved this book so much! It's a fast read because you can't put it down until you're done. Highly recommend it!
This is one of the better books I’ve read this year. Loved that the female lead was not dumb or dishonest about her feelings. Really hate overly angst book.
Well lets start with the cover, in one word,... titillating. I have never written a book review before but felt compelled to do so after reading this book. This book is a contemporary romance novel, and it sucks you in from the get go with its, erotica, alpha-male, screwed up characters, wtf moments, and sexual tension.Reign over Me is riveting, sexy and pulsing with energy, it is everything you want in romance: sexy, sweet and a ton of heat. And I can't wait for Gwendolyn's next book.
If you are a fan of romance between strong men and stronger-than-they-know ladies, you'll like this story. Author Gwendolyn Casey takes readers deep into the world of motorcycle clubs and the bad boys who run them. In the fantasy world that Casey artfully creates, innocent Izzy (Isabel) meets Remington and the sparks fly. Experiencing Izzy's transition from an innocent young lady into a woman who recognizes her own strength (even while enjoying Rem's dominance in the bedroom and a few other fun places!) is just so much fun. Through careful introduction to and exploration of the motorcycle club world, Casey carefully introduces other bad boy club members and their stories -- setting up Reign Over Me as a great first book in this new series. Five stars!
Looking for something other than billionaires wooing women with whips and dark abuse histories? Are you a fan of Sons of Anarchy? Then try this book. It's your classic opposites attract, bad boy meets innocent girl kind of story, but with plenty of sexual tension and mystery to keep you reading. The author keeps switching the narrative between the main characters, so as the reader you can truly experience both sides of the story as it develops from lust to love. The dialogue is realistic and the author's descriptions of each scene makes it easy to visualize every detail. The characters are likeable and the sex scenes are HOT! There's enough of excitement, danger and passion to keep you reading (and blushing). Buy this book!
I'm a guy who read this book only because I was challenged to by my girlfriend's sister. After finishing the book, I admit two things: 1) I have never read a romance novel or erotic literature prior. 2) I loved it! The book: The characters are complex and their interactions well developed. The plot flows well and at a good pace. I love the author's writing style and word choices. (it says book 1, but I can't find book 2. Help! Is it on the way?) Sex/romance/love/erotica, etc: The characters sexual chemistry and tension is virtually tangible as it is often told from both the male and female point of view. The sex scenes were creative and simply - hot! They got me thinking and more.
Just finished Reign Over Me and wow, it was a really good read. Izzy and Rem are smoking hot together. After Isabel's dad and uncle get into trouble with a rival MC she becomes a unknowing pawn in their club business. Sent to the Aces for protection, Izzy is like a fish out of water. The club decides to protect her and she finds a way to assimilate into the club. Sparks like fire ignite between her and the Aces Vice Prez, Remington and a really sexy and complicated romance begins. I enjoyed this book very much and that ending was unexpected - be sure to have a cold drink on standby! Interesting characters that set up storylines to come and I can't wait to read them all. Great story from this author, Gwendolyn Casey. If MC stories are your thing, this one won't disappoint!
With her middle-class upbringing, the last place Isabel Rochester ever expected to end up was in a MC club. Being sent here by her uncle for protection seems odd, but if it means staying safe until she can see her father again she will do it. Life has not always been easy for Rem, but the Marines helped, and the Ace’s became his family after his service. The MC life can be harsh and cruel, especially to outsiders, yet Rem would never live any other way. Isabel is struck by a bolt of attraction when Rem walks into the room, even when it seems he has no interest in her at all. Every day is a battle for Rem. He wants Isabel beyond reason, but she is too good for a man like him. It all becomes too much, and the eruption rocks the entire club. The Ace’s demand loyalty above all else, and Isabel is about to be tested in ways she never thought possible. The lure of a bad boy is hard to resist, especially when it comes packed with hard muscle and a gorgeous face. Isabel has no resistance to this kind of onslaught, and the result is incredible. She and Rem are complete opposites in so many ways, yet when they come together it is magic. I love the darkness, but it is the sincerity and total devotion the Ace’s have for each other, that keep you wanting more.
This book is amazing beginning to end! I love the way each chapter switches from the main characters points of view! Great read!!!!
This book was amazing. Loved it from beginning to end. Could not put it down!! Can't wait to read more from this author
