Stirred, Not Shaken....

On today's blog stop for Nancy S. Thompson I will be posting my review of her new dark erotic romance, STIRRED!

Nancy put together her dream cast for the characters of the book. After reading it, I have to agree with her choices! I'm so excited for everyone to check out STIRRED! 

Stirred Synopsis:
I’m Eden MacLaird, and Fate screwed me good at the age of twenty-one, stole my first love, then my first child. Twenty years later, I still haven't found my happily-ever-after. Sure, from the outside, I have it all, including Declan, my gorgeous, rich-as-sin husband. But things aren't what they seem, and catching Declan in bed with my best friend destroys any dreams I harbor for love, much less sexual fulfillment.

Then in walks Sean Bennett...

Just months away from earning his post-graduate law degree, Sean's smart, driven, and serious, but an unexpected encounter between us in a bar one night changes everything. His best friend, Trinitee, warns against getting too involved, but the heat between us is beyond intense, and neither of us are willing to walk away.

With my marriage in shambles, I'm eager to make a go of it with Sean, despite our sixteen-year age difference. But while I relish my sexual reawakening, I fear giving up the posh life I've grown accustomed to. That life, however, and everything in it, comes crashing down as bodies start piling up around us, and all clues point to me and Sean.

Secrets, betrayal, and revenge threaten to destroy not just my carefully-crafted reputation, but my very life. With our freedom at stake, Sean and I join forces to uncover those plotting against us. But as doubt and evidence mount, I must choose: give in to my suspicions and save myself, or trust our new-found love and save us both.

When I picked up Stirred by Nancy Thompson I was very curious as to how a very talented thrill writer was going to switch genres into romance. It only took a few pages to see that she was going to do it with as much aplomb as she did with her last two books. Stirred is a dark, gritty, intense romance of deceit, murder, family ties and frankly, the sex that stirs all those things together into an explosion for Eden and Sean. There were so many times I had to put the book down and take a deep breath, reminding myself that Eden and Sean weren't real people, but Ms. Thompson surely made you feel as if they were.

Declan, how I loath thee. I was never happier to see someone get their comeuppance in my life. As Eden's husband he betrayed her in so many ways I lost count. There was some humor in the book and you will find it in several scenes with Declan, the biggest D*** on the planet.

Ms. Thompson did such a fantastic job with this book it's hard to review it without giving spoilers. The characters were so real they made your chest ache with anticipation for them, and the plot of the book so plausible it scared me to think about it really happening to someone I know. Set in the beautiful backdrop of Snoqualmie Falls, Stirred is a walk through the dark world of martial affairs, murder, and what happily ever after really means.

I give Stirred 5 cups of so hot it burns your tongue coffee!
