Book Tour for Dirty Sexy Cuffed by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde (REVIEW)

As a reader who's fallen in love with the Kincaid brothers throughout the previous books in the Dirty Sexy series, I'm thrilled to finally get deeper insight into the quiet but commanding youngest brother.  Keep reading to get a tantalizing taste of Dirty Sexy Cuffed by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde, along with my impressions of this book, then add it to your bookshelf!

As a cop, Levi Kincaid is all about discipline and control . . .in the bedroom, and out of it, and he's always been very careful about choosing women who abide by his rules.  Hot sex and intense pleasure?  No problem.  Emotional commitment and forever promises?  No way.  But he never anticipates falling for a blue eyed angel who makes him want to cuff her to his bed and do dirty, sexy things to her.  And that control of his?  It doesn't stand a chance against Sarah Robins, the one woman he can't resist . . .


"What about fun?” he countered easily. “Ever take time for that?"
“It’s been awhile,” she admitted softly.
He didn’t miss the quick flicker of sadness in her gaze that made him want to reach out and touch her, to use his thumb to smooth away the crease that had formed between her brows. Resisting the urge took more effort than he’d expected. “Then how about you say yes to a date with me, and I’ll remedy that for you. I’m all about having a good time with a pretty girl,” he added with a wink.
She opened her mouth to speak, and certain a denial was about to spill out, he quickly held up a hand to stop her. “Wait. Don’t say anything.” She pressed her lips back together, and even though her gaze was wary, he continued on while he still had a bit of leverage. “I want you to really think about your answer this time, instead of automatically turning me down, because one more rejection might just crush me.”




The Kincaid brothers went through a lot growing up with a childhood of abuse and uncaring adults constantly wanting to separate them. Through all the turmoil they could only count on each other which has made them a formidable force as adults. Their childhood pain has left its mark, and with each brother finding their HEA, the emotional walls they've each put up have slowly started to fall. In this third installment in the series it's youngest brother Levi who has his ordered life thrown for a loop when he comes to the aid of a woman running from her obsessed ex-boyfriend and the cult who's driving his actions. Steamy encounters are balanced with revelations of their pasts to make this an engaging story that's a nice addition to the series.

From a childhood of having to watch his mother degrade herself while putting him in danger repeatedly, Levi learned at an early age to behave and be quiet to keep safe. He learned to keep his emotions in check and it's made him the man he is today. As an adult he's still quiet and controlled, a cop with a protective streak, who longs for control in the bedroom. Relationships and commitment aren't for him as he never wants to lose control and put his heart on the line after the betrayal of a mother who should've loved him unconditionally. Meeting the equally emotionally bruised Sarah catches him by surprise, as do the feelings of love she inspires, and has him thinking of HEA for the first time as long as he can keep her safe from her ex. Levi's a sweet and sexy hero with a kind heart. He's always gone for one-night stands or chosen women who only want a short-term fling, never having to work to get the woman he wants...until Sarah. She represents the goodness he's always wanted in his world and he takes his time getting to know her in ever-increasing erotic encounters that end up becoming so much more.

Sarah's childhood was one of heartbreak too. Losing her family at an early age left her in the care of the foster system, sent from one family to another, which had her hardening her heart with each family leaving her behind. As an adult though, she hasn't given up on love, but it's led to some bad decisions which have her on the run. Against her better judgement she's drawn to Levi, his intensity and the feelings of being special to him, have her giving in to a date that becomes so much more. Sarah's very kind hearted and strong-willed, rolling with the punches life sends her way without complaint. She's used to struggles and hates to rely on others, but Levi's the one bright spot in days full of fear and looking over her shoulder. She's an example to Levi of the power of love as she accepts his needs wholeheartedly, never judging him, giving him the support he never felt from anyone other than his brothers.

This was a fast-paced story, over before I knew it. The initial meeting between Levi and Sarah is memorable and sets the tone for their relationship as it shows how far he's willing to go to keep her safe. Their connection is crackling with sexual encounters that are scorching and tinged with a bit of bdsm. Sarah's a bit quiet compared to the larger than life Levi which left me feeling not entirely engaged in their pairing. With Levi's playfulness and sexiness though I was enamored with him from the start of the series and enjoyed seeing him take center stage here. My biggest issue, in an otherwise entertaining journey to HEA, involved the cult Sarah was running from. This element was overly melodramatic, and with so much build up regarding the nefariousness of it, it made for a lackluster conclusion to the story. Thank heavens for the epilogue though which left readers with their jaws on the floor and a sexy secret from the past that already has my heart fluttering. From start to finish this is a steamy story with a likable main couple along with glimpses of past couples who embrace the sense of family between these three brothers. It's an emotional story that ultimately leaves you with a smile on your face as well as counting down the days until the next installment in this series.

My rating for this is a B+

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


Are you ready to get Dirty Sexy with a Saint?
Clay Kincaid knows he's more a sinner than a saint.  Especially when it comes to women.  With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn't do committed relationships.  But he does like sex—the hotter and harder, the better.  He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson.  Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does.  Let the sinning begin . . .



Breaking hearts is what wild and rebellious Mason Kincaid does best. Hit it and quit it is his motto, and with his bad boy reputation and tattoos, he doesn't lack for female companionship. Until one hot night with the one woman he swore he'd never touch becomes an all-consuming addiction he can't kick. Katrina Sands has been his best friend for years, but now that he knows what she feels like, and tastes like, there is no going back to being just friends. Hot, dirty sex has never felt so good...or so right.
