Product description

Product Description

Kingston “King” James is THE male supermodel. He’s at the top of his game, yet he’s bored. Money and fame come easy, women even easier — until her.

She’s everything he thought never existed…

For Phoenix Ryan every day is a reminder of heartache, of all the agony that poisons her soul. She’ll go to any length to appear strong, including convincing herself that she’s actually living — until him.

He’s everything she can’t stand…

As their lives relentlessly cross will they give in? Will they Relinquish?

This is Book One in the Embrace series. It can be read as a standalone with an HEA and is told in dual POV. Due to mature subject matter, strong sexual content and coarse language this book is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

4.0 out of 5 stars it hurt so good though. The storyline was intriguing 9 July 2015
By TAMMI - Published on

"Her fire, it burns so deep and bright--I can't help but surrender to it, begging for her to engulf me in her flames."

I am still on emotional overload from reading this book. The sexual chemistry will seriously leave you breathless and your panties drenched. It's freaking HOT! The banter is hilarious, I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt with it. Man, it hurt so good though. The storyline was intriguing, I was glued to the pages and could not put this baby down! I was reading at work, in between homework, bathroom breaks and during phone conversations! Yes, I became that girl and I will own it! The characters were very well developed, pace was spot-on and it was jam-packed with suspense. However, it was a touch of too much inner dialogue at some points.

"She thinks she needs a knight to battle the past, her fire-breathing dragon, but a phoenix is unique and immortal--just as the Phoenix that stands before me. Her beauty burns bright and vibrant."

I still cannot believe this is a debut, I liked her writing style and I absolutely adore these characters. It was so much fun to read, I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good time, a sexy man with a dirty mouth and writing that will reach out and smack you in the face with feelings. King is all ego and smart ass all the time. I love it and I absolutely love these two together. They are so hot and cold and oh-so-right you can't help but fall head over heels for them. As much fun as this story is, it is one hell of a roller coaster of emotions. There's a major twist, I am talking the mother of all twists that p'd me off for about ten seconds, but I still finished with a smile a mile long. These two are frustrating as hell. They will have you shaking your head as you laugh your butt off, then pulling your hair out in the same breath. You just keep going back for more and as you're tiptoeing around the edge, everything is pulled out from under you and it's an endless free fall. Don't worry you will be back on solid ground...sort of ;)
5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos to this first time author! King is worth the RIDE! 6 July 2015

I really truly enjoyed this first book from SE DEAN! Not all authors can put together a well thought out book the first time out of the gate, but SE has done just that. Her story line had me intrigued from the start and as it grew deeper and deeper I was completely immersed in Kingston and Phoenix's love affair...

Kingston James in on top of the world in his modeling career, but even though he thinks he has it all, his life is shallow and absolutely cliche in every way... Women throw themselves at him because of his looks, Men hate him because he turns the eyes of their women and one woman who caught his eye in all the wrong ways gets under his skin like no other.

Phoenix has lead a fairly tragic life, riddled with pain and heartbreak, she's set aside her own hopes and dreams to live out those of the ones that she loved. Her friends all know she missing out on living her life, and they try everything to break her of that habit she's formed. Some would call her a work-a-holic, others would say she's dedicated. But Phoenix is one tough nut to crack and though Kingston James makes her blood boil in a good and bad way, she's just plain not interested...

Life has a funny way of working itself out, and putting us in the path of people that were meant to be in our lives. Kingston was everything Phoenix wasn't... Their lives entangled and weaved intricately. Until they didn't and the twist will have your jaw dropping and your eyes popping... I tell you I was taken back but how well SE Dean played this one. You will never, EVER see it coming until it's upon you.... You will be so immersed in the storyline you won't see it coming.

Take a ride with King and Phoenix, I don't think you'll soon forget it... I loved this story and everything about it... I hope you will take a chance on this new author as I did. It's worth it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut story from a talented author! 14 July 2015

I was anticipating this debut novel from SE Dean for a while...... and it definitely was worth the wait! Kingston is a real a**hole while Pheonix was an ass kicker! I knew from the beginning there was something in her past that really affected who she had become, and while it does come out later in the book what happened with her family that affected her so deeply, I would have loved to learn more about who she was before and what happened a bit sooner. I love that she really lets Kingston have it from their first interaction and doesn't let up for quite some time. Her presence affects him and his a**hole ways instantly, and I love that he doesn't know what to do about that!
SE Dean definitely has some talent for writing. This is her debut novel and as an avid reader I have become pretty good at foreshadowing things to come...... BUT she tossed me around with this novel, not once but TWICE in the last 20% of the book! And I LOVED it! Her shocking twist totally broke my heart and I was afraid it may have ruined the whole story for me..... but she makes it better before the end of the book.
Great job SE Dean on your debut..... I will be looking for more from you in the future!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me 22 July 2015
By Sandoval - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got to 30%, and couldn't go any further. It's full of rambling and trains of thought that don't relate to the story, and are distracting. Plus all the characters are constantly yelling. I think there are one or more exclamation mark on every page. It's full of over kill descriptions, and unnecessary babble. At this point, I don't get the author's point of the story, not much is tying together, no cohesion. I'll give credit for the effort, but this story could've benefited from a good editor, and I feel like it wasn't worth the price I paid on Amazon.
3.0 out of 5 stars Just an ok read 31 October 2015

**3.5 Stars**

I am going to be perfectly honest, this book literally had me wanting to throw my kindle up against the wall. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I found myself hating Phoenix at times. She kind of got on my nerves with letting people push her around. I understood why her friends were doing what they were doing but, they came on a little too strong in my opinion. Kingston I freaking loved!! His and Phoenix's relationship at the beginning was a lot of back and forth. Then I finally started to love where the book was going and then BAM a humungo twist at the end and yes it is different from other books, but I just didn't like how it was done. Overall it is an okay read.
