Spiraling from the bustling streets of New York City to the opulence of Paris, KNOTTED, the third book in Juliet Braddock’s Manhattan Bound series, continues the steamy journey of Maxine Kirk’s whirlwind romance with star of the Broadway stage, Drew McKenzie.
As their love continues to flourish, Maxine finds herself ensconced in Drew’s world, where power reigns in his all-consuming lust for her. From a blackout in Manhattan to a back alley in Paris to a castle in the Loire Valley, their passion knows no boundaries.
All the while, though, traces from their separate pasts continue to haunt, threatening to disrupt their happiness.
Maxine must confront the harsh, emotional realities that she’d thought she’d conquered. However, she wonders if her courage will withstand the crushing heartache that has threatened to destroy her soul.
As Drew continues to fit together the missing pieces of his childhood, danger shadows his every move. Drifting through the tumultuous events of their public and personal lives, Drew will stop at nothing to keep Maxine safe—and to guard their secrets from the world.
Passion and peril collide, culminating in the explosive revelation of the enigma that’s followed Drew for years.
KNOTTED, the third novel in Juliet Braddock’s “Manhattan Bound” series of four books, is available at most major e-book retailers on October 3.
Within the past week I have read all three books to this series and to say I love them is an understatement! All three books were great on their own but this book was outstanding and amazing! Before starting this series, I have never read anything by Juliet Braddock but I will be in the future! She is now on my favorite author list.
There were a lot of uprises in this book that I didn't see coming. Knotted had me on my knees and wet! Yes .... it was hot and steamy! The entire time I was reading, I was wishing I was in Maxines shoes whether she was being tied up or whipped or whatever other sexual act was going on. I also wanted to explore all these places they had sex. Now I want to go out and find my own spot to explore! If you like BSDM book, then this is the book for you!
Omg Drew and Maxine just keep dragging me in with their romance and their love towards one another! Even with Drew' dominant side, he is without a doubt a great guy. Through Maxines breakdown, he was there to help her get through everything. Maxine has come along way with her haunting past, but she still has her moments like the one in this book that ripped my heart out right along with her.
This series is absolutely amazing and I cannot thank Juliet enough for creating a world and characters that I fell in love with. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
**I received an ARC book in review for an honest exchange.**
Excerpt: Maxine and Drew’s First Valentine’s Day together…
In one swift move, he'd clasped her hands in his and held them above her head as he pinned her with his body against the cold, stainless steel refrigerator. “Should I deny you on this frigid, snowy…Valentine afternoon?”
Now was her chance to spill the beans and send her punishment into overdrive. “I can do that myself, Kind Sir,” she insisted. “Without touching myself.”
Raising a brow, his pride swelled. Such a perfect submissive was she.
“Oh, yeah, Sassypants?” he challenged as he plucked at a strap. “Show me...”
Maxine took one very slow, deep breath into her lungs. Wrapping her fingers around the refrigerator door handle, she opened her green eyes wide and held his gaze as he watched her. Already, she could feel her clit twitching beneath that damp wisp of satin that covered her, and her nipples throbbed against those little pasties.
“Uhhhhhhh...” she groaned.
However, Drew couldn't resist closing just a bit of distance between them, fearing she'd collapse and hurt herself as orgasm took hold. Placing a hand on each side of her, he was ready to catch her, just in case.
“Tell me what you're thinking right now, Maxine.”
“I'm thinking...ohhh, I'm thinking I'm on my knees, Sir...”
“And what are you doing in your little fantasy?” he prompted her.
“Sucking you...sucking you off, Sir...and I'm... oh, fuck...!”
Without warning, she gripped his shoulder as she kicked her heel, scuffing it against the hardwood floor. His face was so close, so intense, as she writhed before him but not against him. Drew hadn't laid a single finger on her, yet orgasm consumed her as her body just shook with the shocks of oblivion.
Drew's thoughts were likewise awhirl. Her sexual appetite knew no boundaries. Maxine’s need to please him—and to please herself—astounded him. Seeing her submit to her own pleasure always sent jolts of electric desire straight through his cock. Witnessing her shuddering and screaming and calling out his name when all he'd done was simply walk in the door and give her a mild scolding nearly reduced him to ashes.
He fucking hated losing control with her, but he simply couldn't resist slipping his hands between them, ripping away those two little hearts from her nipples and dipping his head to bite down, drawing one swollen little bud between his teeth.
“So help me, Maxine, if I come in my fucking jeans...you're getting spanked until next Valentine's D—”
Reality, however, struck him suddenly like a bolt of lightning to a tree.
Fuck. The power went out.
