Manhattan Bound Series Review Blitz

 

 

Book One, Manhattan Bound Series

Against the glittering backdrop of New York City, budding theatrical publicist Maxine Kirk, fresh off the bus from a small Pennsylvania town, stumbles into the arms of her beloved teenage crush, unleashing desires that she never imagined. 

Enter Drew McKenzie, a rising star on Broadway with dashing looks and talent to match, who masquerades behind the characters he portrays. 

Instantly, Maxine finds herself lured into Drew’s high society world only to uncover a complicated man beneath the glitz and glamour of his public persona. As soon as the curtain falls, Drew sheds his stage costumes to reveal a daring Dominant side. 

Titillated by his enigmatic life, Maxine clamors to discover a surreptitious and possibly perilous affair with Drew, all the while questioning her own preconceived notions on romance. 

Secrets surface, revealing haunting truths that test both Maxine and Drew of their own intentions. But in this high-stakes game of trust, only the strongest survive.

 

 

Book Two, Manhattan Bound Series

 

When Drew McKenzie presents Maxine Kirk with an ultimatum, challenging her to engage in his wanton brand of desire, she readily embraces her awakening hunger for a lifestyle that defies her perceptions of romance.

Entranced by Drew’s charming appeal and by his sensual assault to her senses, Maxine clamors to discover every nuance of this new relationship, ravenous to explore verboten fantasies that seem possible to fulfill only with Drew.

Along the way, he introduces her to his glamorous world of wealth and celebrity—where lavish galas and luxurious gifts are the norm—and entices her into his realm of control with his tender mode of domination.

All the while, however, they both grapple with painful emotions brought about by the extenuating circumstances of their separate pasts.

While Drew remains both confident and conscientious in his parlay of power over Maxine, his own tragic secret lurks in every shadow upon his path in life. Behind the façade of his stage persona and the origin of old Manhattan society, he struggles to hide the unforgiving reality he faced as a child.

Just as Maxine finds the strength to conquer her own torment with Drew’s patience and guidance leading her toward closure, terrifying truths begin to chip away at the surface of his composure.

As the nightmarish details of Drew’s unimaginable life emerge, he fears that this new world he’d begun to build with Maxine will crumble around him.

As Maxine finds herself embroiled in the battle to save Drew’s tortured soul from the atrocities that continue to stalk his every move, two lost souls struggling to find comfort and completion converge.

However, as Drew opens his heart to Maxine’s unwavering support, he questions his own bravery, wondering if she’ll take a bow and make her exit…or if she’ll stick around for the encore?

 

 

Book Three, Manhattan Bound Series

 

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.

Amazon bestselling author Juliet Braddock’s first efforts in

creative writing came long before she learned to put crayon to paper.  In fact, she began spinning stories in her

head nearly as soon as she could form complete sentences.  As long as she can remember, she’d always

created sagas about imaginary friends, family members and pop culture icons,

and kept everyone around her entertained with her witty—but often very

tall—tales.

 

For her sixth Christmas, Juliet’s mother got her a child’s

typewriter to preserve all of those creative thoughts filling her head, but she

quickly switched to ball point pens and notebooks when the ribbon ran dry.

 

Most of Juliet’s early attempts at writing romance focused on

members of Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet or young leading men on Broadway.  However, as she matured as a writer, she

decided that it was just as much fun to create her own romantic heroes and

heroines.

 

At an early age, she also developed a love for big cities,

and the tallest of skyscrapers were never high enough for her.  Juliet’s wanderlust would eventually lure her

to New York, a city she often visited during her formative years, and her love

affair with Manhattan began.  She’d

promised herself that one day she would return for good.

 

Juliet’s passion for writing and for big cities converged,

and after graduating with a degree in Journalism, she decided to set out on a

journey to find her heart…just where she’d left it.

 

A week after her college graduation, Juliet made the big move

from a small town to New York City, where she has made her home ever since.

 

In between building a career in communications and writing on

the side, she’s indulged in international travel, theater and art.  A wine and food buff, she’s by no means a

connoisseur, but she can give a few good restaurant recommendations if you’re

in the city.

 

“There’s something so inspiring about living in a city like

New York that’s so rich in culture and so very vibrant. Every neighborhood has

its own story to tell,” Juliet says.  “I

often do my best plotting on the subway, just observing the lives unfolding around

me.  New York truly has a billion stories

nestled between the skyscrapers.”

 

A proud Manhattanite, Juliet couldn’t live anywhere

else—except for Paris, perhaps—and is a gushing cat-mom to a Russian Blue mix

who was rescued as a kitten from the streets of Brooklyn.

Excerpt

**Enjoy a sneak peek into Law’s book!!!**

LAW.

Helicopters.

The sound of rotor blades haunted him. Sometimes, they were deafening. He could be standing in a crowded market in Bangkok, and all he would hear is womp womp womp.

Kingsley had joined the military at the tender age of seventeen. Some forged paperwork and a couple fake IDs, and he got right in – he knew punishment and discovery was inevitable, but none of it could be as bad as his home life. His step-father took discipline very seriously, and though Kingsley had been over six feet tall since Year Six, he was a string bean. Putting on weight was impossible for him, even though he ate like a horse. His step-father was a local boxing champion, a skill he liked to use often to prove his points.

The military could provide an income, schooling, a chance to travel, and most importantly – would teach him how to properly defend himself. How to make sure no one could ever treat him like that again.

What he’d never expected, though, was to take to it like a duck to water. He’d signed up for simple infantry, but showed such an aptitude for marksmanship, he was moved up through the ranks to sniper quickly. By the time it was discovered that he’d lied about his age, no one cared. He was too good at his job.

And not just shooting. He took to almost everything well. A childhood love for Aikido stayed with him, and he became a high degree black belt. His aptitude for stealth and his above average intellect caused his higher ups to push him towards the intelligence side of the military. He was introduced to the wonders that were SIS – formerly MI6. British intelligence and secret service.

He traveled all over the world. Received training – and gave it – at prestigious places like Quantico and Langley, did tours all over Europe.

Then the war on terror went to a whole new level. At the time, Kingsley had been part of an elite group of soldiers and special agents that were concentrating on gathering information about Al Qaeda. They were instructed to use “any means necessary” – a work ethic that would prove to stick with him later in life.

They were stationed in Afghanistan, operating primarily out of Camp Bastion. It was conjoined with an American military base, the famed Camp Leatherneck. There was a lot of good-natured rivalry going on between the two bases, and while Kingsley enjoyed the rowdy Americans, he kept to himself for the most part.

Obviously, there was an airfield at the base, and all manner of airplanes and jets were taking off, all the time. But for some reason, the helicopters stood out the most for him. He enjoyed helicopters, had received training on several models, and liked to fly in them.

One day, he returned from a fact finding mission and he’d been walking across the base when a Westland Lynx helicopter had flown low over him. A little unusual. He’d lifted his eyes to watch it, squinting in the setting sun, totally not paying attention to anything going on in front of him.

Watch it!

But the warning came too late. He rammed into someone, completely bowling them over. He came to a stop, looking down at his feet.

“Sorry.”

She was tiny. Even sprawled out on the ground, he could tell; being somewhat of a giant, he was a good judge of size. He bent down and held out his hand, and though she glared at him, she took it and pulled herself to her feet. He smiled to himself. The pixie in front of him would be lucky if she was even brushing five-foot-two.

“Do you always walk around without looking where you’re going?” she snapped, dusting herself off. She had an American accent and was wearing a white lab coat over faded green scrubs.

“Only when I feel like making new friends,” he teased. She glanced up at him, then went back to cleaning herself off.

“Pity it didn’t work this time.”

“Oh, I don’t know. I’m feeling very friendly.”

“Watch it, soldier. I outrank you.”

“Different countries, love, doesn’t count. We’re technically peers. Fancy a drink?”

No. Now get out of my way.”

He laughed as she pushed past him. She was little, but feisty. He wondered what her gig was, what had brought her to Afghanistan.

“The name’s Law!” he yelled out at her form as she hurried across the pavement.

“Good for you!”

“And you are!?”

“Someone who doesn’t want to be your friend!”

He laughed until she’d disappeared from sight.

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since …, forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
