Book Review: Captivated by Megan Hart & Tiffany Reisz

Captivated
by Megan Hart and Tiffany Reisz 

Blurb:
Double the passion and seduction as New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart and international bestselling author Tiffany Reisz weave two provocative tales about power, bad-boy lovers and secret desires!

LETTING GO by Megan Hart 
Colleen goes to the same bar every night and orders the same drink: a whiskey, neat. She doesn't drink it, though. Jesse the bartender notices the beautiful, sad woman who keeps to herself. Until one night when she lets go and lets him in. And after that, Jesse has only one mission--to show her one night is only the beginning.

SEIZE THE NIGHT by Tiffany Reisz 
Four years ago, a night of forbidden passion between Remi and Julien, the heirs of two powerful and competitive horse-racing families, led to a feud that is threatening to ruin both farms. Now Remi must find Julien again, but when she does, her need for Julien is just as strong and just as forbidden.

Viviana's Review:
 LETTING GO by Megan Hart 
This is the first time I read anything by Megan Hart but it won't be the last time. I enjoyed her writing style! This was a story about a woman who is recently divorced from controlling man. She goes to the same bar every day but doesn't drink in an effort to show and convince herself she is in control. Turns out the bartender, Jesse, is a hottie and he pays attention. He's also attracted to her. At first he tries to be friend her and she hesitates. However, I'm sure you'd figure it out that THAT doesn't last long. The attraction is mutual and while she is concerned about the age difference, he's younger than she, she is also concerned about a few other things. 

There were a few times where I wanted to grab Colleen by the shoulders and shake her to help her realize a good thing while it's in front of her. It felt like the author was perhaps trying too hard to make the "obstacles" a tad bit bigger than they really were and it was obvious to the reader. This didn't make me like Colleen very much. Jesse is a sweetheart who just wanted to be with Colleen and tried his hardest to understand where she was coming from. I am glad things worked out in the end, but again, felt that there was more obstacles/issues being created than necessary. 


SEIZE THE NIGHT by Tiffany Reisz 
I couldn't wait to read this! Love Tiffany Reisz! Her style of writing. Her stories! Just Love. This was a Romeo and Juliet with a twist. In this case Remi, she is the "older woman" by four years and Julien is the younger man who knows exactly what he wants. And he wants Remi! However, they are from from rival horse racing families in Kentucky and they originally met at a party four years ago where they hit it off and they didn't know who the other one was at the time. It was an instant connection. They spent hours talking and getting to know each other. With the instant connection came the attraction they felt for each other. So when then 22 year old Remi is caught semi naked with then 17 year old Julien.. yeah not so good! It was a misunderstanding but the feuding families used this to further their cause!

Fast forward and we have Remi, working for her family and subconsciously looking for Julien at all the events. Unfortunately, he's no where to be found. When she learns that there is something a mist with the family businesses she seeks Julien out for help. When the two of them reconnect the sparks reignite and the story goes on from there!

Oh and Merrick! Merrick is Remi assistant! He is sarcastic, funny, sexy and while he won't say it, very sweet. OH he so needs his own story. I hope one day, Tiffany decides to write SOMETHING, with him. Just need more of him! He brought more umph to an already awesome story!

While not as "HOT" compared to the sex scenes from Tiffany's other stories, I think everything works great together for THIS story!
