★ Lifeless (Lifeless #1) - 4 Stars
If the first book had been intense, sexual and filled with mystery – the second book? Hold on into your e-readers, as J.M. La Rocca takes us in for one wild ride into the dangerous world of Kade Evans.
KADE EVANS, what have you gotten yourself into?!
The first book ended with me wondering what in the world Kade Evans has been hiding. His world had previously revolve around his band, alcohol, drugs and women until Scarlett. He was everything to her, and he hated to see her go. But to save her from his past and from the danger that surrounds him, he must break her heart first. He promised himself that after he settled everything, he would win her back once again. He went on hiatus and focused on what needs to be done. He didn’t like it, but he needed to do it if he wanted to put his past aside and move on with his life. But his plans had a sudden turn when Scarlett strutted back into his life, more beautiful than ever.
EIGHT MONTHS, it has been eight long excruciating months since Scarlett saw Kade. After his betrayal, she had tried to move on and forget about him. It had been quite a task. Her thoughts often went into his direction. It didn’t even help when her best friend Jules tries to push her towards Bryce. Then a new opportunity came in, when she was transferred to LA. It would give her a new beginning. She can start over once again. But one evening, she bumped into the last person she expected to see, Kade Evans.
I loved this more than I loved the first book – because it is jam-packed with action and suspense, and of course, gets you all hot and bothered with all the steamy scenes – indeed, make-up sex is still the best there is. It’s good to see the old characters back here – especially Jules who seemed to have a problem of her own but it didn’t made her less a friend to Scarlett. She was still supportive of her.
I was relentlessly on the edge of my seat – suffering from one twist to another, unable to put down my e-reader of the fear I might miss something out. I didn’t know who the real enemy is, or whom to trust. Unforeseen friends, betrayals, and reunion – just as when I thought I got it figured out, I found myself in constant awe.
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.
