Tour-Review and Excerpt: Unlawful Desire by Chelle Bliss (ALFA PI #2)


Title: Unlawful Desire
Series: ALFA PI Book #2

No matter how hard I tried to push her away, fate thrust us together again.
Screw relationships. My motto: Hit it and quit it.
Simple worked. Feelings weren’t on the line, hearts weren’t able to be broken, and I could keep my life simple.
My friends told me to move on and find the “one,” but I wasn’t ready to love again.
Until I met her.
A dirty-mouthed temptress with a killer body that had me questioning everything.
I knew I could ruin her forever, but not without losing myself.
I wouldn’t do it.
But Georgia Phillips was innocent, pure, and total perfection.
I wouldn’t be the one to strip her bare and break her heart.
I swore I’d never call another woman mine, but that was before I almost lost her.
Warning: If you can't handle a cocky bad boy or a badass chick with a dirty mouth, this might not be the book for you.

Unlawful Desire Excerpt
She leaned back against the bar with her tits jutting out and her arms crossed underneath. “What’s your problem with me? Did I do something to you, Frisco?”

Caught off guard by her question, my body jerked backward. “N-no,” I stuttered.

She tapped her foot. “You ditched me, marched off when you heard my age, and tonight, you seem less than happy that I’m here. What the f*ck gives?”

I cleared my throat, trying to find my voice and a reasonable explanation. “I don’t have anything against you.” I was in so much trouble.

“Let’s cut the sh*t, Frisco. I’m a big girl. What’s the problem? Would you rather I leave?” Her body oozed attitude.

I cringed. I never wanted to hurt anyone, but I knew that I had hurt her feelings. “No. Don’t go. I’m sorry. It’s just that Sunshine…” My chest tightened. “She’s trying to fix us up.”

Georgia filled her cheeks with air before slowly exhaling. “Is that so bad?” She narrowed her eyes. “If I’m not your type, it’s cool. But otherwise, what’s the issue? I thought we had a nice time up until you left the party. I’m a big girl. Just be honest with me. I’m not into playing games.”

I wanted to play games. Naked games that ended with us against a wall, tangled together like we’d played the sexiest game of Twister.

My Review

So, I'm actually on the fence for this one.  There really was not much drama at all...I was hoping for something more in tune with the PI agency like there was in Sinful Intent so there would be suspense.  Here in Unlawful Desire, it was mostly sexual tension, conflict over the age difference between Frisco and Georgia, and the bit of drama over the accident.

A big plus for this story is Frisco's character, who I absolutely loved.  Strong alpha male, hot and sexy of course (this wouldn't be a Chelle Bliss book without that thank goodness!), and hurt from his past with his ex.  Georgia was a good female lead, though at times her naïveté did show.  My big character gripe for this story was Suzy.  Over the course of the Men of Inked series and now here, she's developing into a kind of annoying and pushy person--nothing like the Sunshine I adored from Throttle Me--and City just going along with her just doesn't fit with the City who's been my favorite through all of the books.  They both just seem miles away from the characters they once were, which for me detracts from the story in Unlawful Desire.

I did enjoy the banter between Frisco and Georgia, and the hot and steamy scenes between them were excellent.  I just felt like the story got away from what I thought the series would be, making it more about the personal relationship with no strong suspense element.

If you're already a Chelle Bliss fan, you'll enjoy this addition to the advised, this is for the 18+ crowd due to plentiful adult coarse language in addition to those hot and steamy adult scenes.
