Indulging in Irelyn - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

NFL quarterback, Zolt Hamil was America’s heartthrob until a career ending injury changed his life. Years later, he’s picked up the pieces and carved out a new path for himself. But the mental and physical scars of that day have left him moody and reclusive, and his only relief is indulging in pleasure and pain with his many one night stands. Though many women have tried, Zolt refuses to care about any of them. Only one woman has his heart; a hallucination of a young, sable-eyed, blonde beauty whom he conjured that painful day on the football field.

On the first day at his new job at a law firm in Scottsdale, Arizona, Zolt comes face to face with his hallucination, Irelyn Wilkes. Their fateful connection, and explosive passion for each other pulls them together, and this time, Zolt refuses to let her slip from his life.

But Irelyn has her own demons to fight and her controlling boyfriend is one of them. He doesn't take kindly to other people playing with his toys, and he’ll stop at nothing to keep her by his side.

Can Irelyn and Zolt defy the odds and find a way to be together? Or, will the events set in motion years ago keep them apart forever?

Are you ready for Zolt Hamil?

Brace yourself, because this MAN is scourging HOT!  

Years ago, he was a NFL quarterback, one of the most sought-after bachelors, and he was living his dreams, but a career-ending injury had changed his life. Now, he’s got a different career path – he’s now a successful lawyer. He’s still a lady’s man, but he doesn’t believe in relationship. He’s got scars that causes him pain both physically and mentally. He’s got some mood swings and prefers his solitude. He’s in for ONE NIGHT only – he will give them pleasure, then shove them out the door (douche move, I KNOW!). BUT there is this one girl who had been running in his mind for years – the girl whom he shared that connection on THAT day in the football field, only that he wasn’t THAT sure if she was real or a figment of his imagination.

But on his first day at his new job, he proved that he was not hallucinating, because the girl of his dreams, and fantasy is standing right in front of him – Irelyn Wilkes. The moment their eyes met, the powerful connection was still present. But Irelyn has her own baggage – a controlling boyfriend, and the sudden and mysterious death of her brother.

Zolt and Irelyn definitely had that kind of chemistry that will explode laboratories. It took a while, since he was being honorable and all – but once IT finally happened: OMG! It was worth the wait!

Zolt can be an alpha male – possessive, domineering and just plain SEXY and he can be sweet and charming as well. Did I tell you he’s smart too?!!! He was a great guy, but he has his moments sometimes. After all that he had been through, the pain, the insecurities that he was experiencing, it was just understandable.

As for Irelyn – at first I was like – WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! GO BREAK UP WITH MARCUS!!! I can’t understand why she allowed herself to be treated like a piece of possession, she deserved way better than that. But once you get to read the whole thing, you will understand. Marcus can really be scary. He can intimidate you without even touching you. Well, I think he’s a big bully who needs to be put in his place. I was waiting for that big fight where Zolt would crush his face. Arggghhh!  

Then there were the other characters – Sloan, Brody, Cody and Rachel who were just as important as the main characters and also had their moments. After finally reaching the final chapter, the anticipation rises up and I just couldn’t wait what the next installment would bring. If the first book left me panting, wondering, and scared for the characters, how much more the second book?

My first read coming from this author, and I must say I wasn’t disappointed. She built anticipation, gave me an element of surprise and a whole lot of amazing sex. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down, and when I did, I was hoping the next book is just right around the corner. Oh well, I guess I have to wait till June for it. Nevertheless, it’s worth the read, and I would recommend it to friends.
