Book Spotlight for Love Repeated by Nancy Corrigan (Review & GIVEAWAY)


As a fan of steamy reads I'm excited by the book I'm bringing you today.  Nancy Corrigan is making a return visit today with her latest release, Love Repeated, the first book in her Sander's Valley series.  Keep reading to get a look at what's between the covers, along with my impressions of this erotic tale with a small town feel.  Make sure to fill out the form below for the chance to win a $10 GC too!

Young lovers, Kyle and Ronnie, had the world ahead of them at seventeen. Stubbornness, misunderstanding and a mother’s influence forced them to forge their own paths. A decade later, neither can find love.
Ronnie always thought it was easier to move on than deal with the pain and hurt of past mistakes. She made plenty of them, but so did Kyle and her parents. Kyle knows the moment he touches Ronnie that he still loves her. He won’t repeat the past and let her leave him a second time.
It takes a tragedy and a secret to reunite them, but their passion returns in a rush along with regret and guilt. To have love, they’ll have to overcome their issues—before her mother’s sin takes Ronnie away, once and for all.

EXCERPT:

“I want to kiss you, Ronnie.”
She swept the tip of her tongue out, moistening her mouth and tempting him to feast. “Are you asking permission, or—”
He leaned closer and caught her bottom lip between his teeth, stopping her words. Her shaky exhale washed over him, filling his lungs with the scent of cinnamon. The long-denied craving for her taste surged. She’d always chewed on cinnamon gum or mints. The taste used to drug him. Would it still? She’d been his favorite addiction a lifetime ago.
He grasped the back of her neck and licked the inside of her lip. Her flavor hit him, a punch in the gut he welcomed. It left him a little crazed and a lot horny. On a groan, he kissed her. She opened to him, stroking her tongue with his and feeding him her soft mewling noises, those little purrs of contentment she’d always offered him whenever they first came together. He soaked them up along with the rightness kissing her brought.
She complemented his thrusts and licks with ones of her own. They’d perfected the art of kissing years before they’d ever joined their bodies. It had been his favorite hobby. He’d never been able to get enough. He still couldn’t. Head angled, he delved deeper and sucked on her tongue, tearing moans from her throat.
She twisted her torso and linked her hands around his neck. Nails dug into his skin, she tugged him closer, kissed him harder, and tore his tenacious control to shreds. He rocked into her and let his hands roam over her soft, curvy body.
Primitive hungers beat at him. He wanted to strip her and lick every inch, memorizing her swells and valleys. Maybe spread her thighs and get drunk on her sweet sex. Or push her to her knees and pump into her mouth until he exploded. So many images rose, but it was the need to possess her that made his decision.
He tore his mouth from hers. She panted hard. So did he. The lust they’d shared returned, stronger than ever. He couldn’t wait a moment more.
He rubbed his forefinger over her lips, then slipped it between them. Her breath heated his skin. She closed her mouth over his finger. With a swirl of her tongue, she drew him deeper and held him there for a long moment before she sucked. Hard.
His dick jerked. Precum seeped from the tip. He yanked on his finger, but she bit just to the point of pain, stopping him. His breath escaped in a shudder. He dragged the digit out, her teeth scraping him, and cupped her face between his palms.
“I’m going bend you over your car, lift your skirt, and fuck you, Ronnie. If you have some guy that’s going to hunt me down for making you come all over my dick, tell me now.” He flashedher a wicked smile. “And I’ll make you writhe over my tongue instead.”

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

In this novella that's the start of a new series we get a tale of lost dreams and rekindled romance between two people kept apart by their own stubbornness and cowardice.  When fate intervenes ten years later will they be able to put past hurts behind them or will a secret come between them just when their HEA is within reach?


Kyle and Ronnie came from very different social circles but spent many torrid summers steaming up the countryside.  Kyle knew she was his future but her doubts and her mother's pressure had her running away in the night and left him forever wondering what-if.  When she returns battered and bruised he comes to her rescue and fights for their future once again.  His plan for claiming her revolves around lots of erotic encounters while getting her to admit her true feelings.  Through everything Kyle remains strong in his beliefs of his love for her and is willing to give up everything to be with her.  He's sweet and very forgiving despite all the hurt she caused.  He's unquestionably supportive and protective and gave her the time to realize what was truly important to her.  He definitely was the best part of the story!


Ronnie came from a family of wealth but lies between her parents set her on a self-destructive path that kept her from a HEA with Kyle.  Her mother led her to believe things that were untrue and tarnished her happiness with Kyle through doubts.  It's led to ten years of loneliness with no one to truly care about her.  It also ruined her relationship with her father and took away her belief in fairytale love and HEAs.  Her mother also carried a big secret that's now put Ronnie's life in jeopardy.  Luckily she has Kyle's strength to lean on, if only she can put her stubbornness aside.  Ronnie never let her wealth taint her interactions with the much poorer Kyle and their sweet friendship quickly turned steamy.  She never listened to her heart though and let her mother sway her in many ways.  I was disappointed that she never stood up for what she really wanted, instead she let assumptions rule her.  I never really warmed up to her as she felt cold with emotions that never ran too deep.


This was a quick read with lots of erotic encounters that took away a bit from the story's emotional depth.  Ms. Corrigan did a good job though laying the groundwork for their early interactions to make their rekindled relationship believable.  The ending was a bit rushed with Ronnie's familial secret easy to discern as well as the villain's identity.  Kyle is the true highlight of this story as he's everything a girl wants.....sweet, sexy, supportive, honorable, loyal, and close to his family.  The brief interactions with his brother Wyn were playful and have me very excited to see more of this fun and flirty younger brother.  Ms. Corrigan has crafted a solid start to the Sander's Valley series, and the sexy brothers who live there, and I'm greatly anticipating the next installment.


My rating for this is a B-


*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

AUTHOR INFO:

A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with woman strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.
