Journey with Korah and Dane in the Intoxicating Passion box set, as they battle their individual demons on the way to finding a way to care for one another.
Korah Daniels is a nineteen-year-old college student dealing with the aftermath of leaving an abusive relationship. After letting down her guard, she meets a sexy guy at a Halloween party, but quickly realizes her past isn’t as far gone as she hoped. Will she be able to run from her abuser? Will she continue to hold her heart dearly or will the mysterious Zorro find a way through?
Dane Davidson is the ultimate playboy, never sticking around for more than one night. When he encounters Angel Eyes, he discovers his heart isn’t as locked up as he imagined. The more he learns of her, the greater he desires her, and wants to protect her. Will Dane be able to let go of his past so he can have a future? Will Korah be the one who makes him want to change?  

The five Intoxicating Passion novelettes take you along with Dane and Korah, as they face the answers to life’s biggest questions.


       I started reading Intoxicating Passion, the box set, by Felicia Tatum around 11:30 pm and finished it by 1:52 am. Can I just say that I’m absolutely in love with Dane? I mean seriously the boy is far from perfect but there’s something about him that pulls at your heart. Don’t get me started on how much love I have for Korah. When it comes down to it though, I have to give mad love to Felicia Tatum and her utter brilliance on writing an engaging series of novellas and packaging it all together so we don’t have to wait for each individual one to be released.
Korah has trust issues when it comes to guys, rightfully so when you’ve been in an abusive relationship. I applaud Felicia for taking on a subject that affects numerous women and men around us on a day to day basis. Maybe you know of someone who is or has been abused, the one thing we all need to remember is that we can fight this by helping each other out. When Korah goes to a Halloween party with her best friend Leela, Zorro sweeps her off her feet and things heat up, but before faces and names are revealed, she runs.

“Was he a regular prince charming sweeping me off my feet? No, not most days, but he was real. And he cared for me with a passion I’d never experienced.” -Korah

Now Dane is a ladies man, but beneath that beautiful body of his lies a fragile, and broken heart. Witnessing his mother’s indiscretions and falling in love in high school with a girl that cheats on him with his best friend, Dane turns off his feelings by sleeping with any girl who shows interest. When he sees a girl in a store that doesn’t pay him the attention he’s used to his interest is piqued. When a girl that walks into his frat house on Halloween in an Angel costume leads to a little action, but she leaves before any names or faces are exchanged. It has him going crazy.

So when the semester starts up and Korah can’t stop thinking about the guy who made her lose control, Dane can’t stop thinking about the girl who ran off, and fate plays her hand by putting them together as lab partners, can they both come out on top or will they break each other more than they already are?

“Two shattered souls trying to make a relationship work, would be a tough challenge, but I knew if I could do it for anyone, it would be this magnificent creature in my arms.”-Dane

I absolutely loved this series. I don’t want to elaborate more on it that what I have already because I don’t like spoilers, but I will tell you so much goes down that you will have to finish it in one sitting. Seriously. Korah and Dane face so many obstacles but it only makes their ending so much sweeter. You can’t help but curse Dane at some of the stupid mistakes he makes, but he’s learning. The growth in both of these characters are beyond amazing and I’m really sad there isn’t more to their story. I definitely would love to see more from them. So if you haven’t grabbed your copy of this amazing set of novella’s you need to do that now! 

I love Felicia Tatum's books and this little series of 5 kept me captivated till the end. Korah and Dane met behind masks at a Halloween party and he wanted to find her again. Korah wanted to forget. Then they landed as lab partners in a class. Dane asked Korah to let him prove himself. See he's a playboy, hurt my relationships and Korah has had a scary past with guys. They try and Dane feels a connection and runs. Korah doesn't want to trust him again but their draw to each other is strong.
I loved their chemistry and wanted them together every time they got close!! But They had to work through stuff. Then Korahs ex comes and beats her!! Dane omg here I swooned he took such good care of her. I wanted to slap him though when he fought his feelings. This only took me a matter of hours to get through and I still want more!

Man of my Dreams
Keep Me

Sexy, tatted up, underwear model Marcus Grayson is every girl’s dream—or more likely worst nightmare. He’s a player, a self-proclaimed bachelor for life, and he’s got no problem living up to his man-whore status. But when his older sister’s friend comes back from the past, he may just have the chance to turn some of his adolescent fantasies into reality. 

Tessa Bradley is a self-sufficient, take-no-bull, single mother—well, now she is. Finally rid of her abusive, alcoholic ex, she’s making a new life for herself and catching up with old friends; the ones she was forced to break ties with because of her controlling husband. When she runs into Marcus, her friend Riley’s once-adorable turned smoking-hot little brother, she has no idea how he’s about to rock her world.

I love when I get introduced to author's I've never heard about, even more so when I love their books. I wasn't able to get to Man of my Dreams before the tour date was upon us, but I did manage to read Keep Me and I absolutely adored it. I know reading is an escape to some, because it is to me as well, but I've found lately that I'm really enjoying books that have a realistic theme. Keep Me is by no means and easy read. It's an emotional roller coaster and I applaud Faith Andrews in doing a spectacular job. I felt like I connected with Tessa and Marcus on some degree and that's what reading is all about in my opinion. I love and thrive on that connection. I laughed, swooned, and cried throughout this book. OMG the last 20% of the book had me glued to it. No one was tearing me away from finishing it once I hit that last percentage. I was hooked from the beginning and stayed hooked until the beautiful end.

So what's it about? Well Tessa met this guy Zack and thought he was amazing. You know the saying, "Love is blind," right? Well it took a lot for Tessa to finally see the damage he was causing her and for her to get away from him. When she starts working, little does she know one of the clients of the place she works at is going to be the little brother of her best friend Riley. Little he is not, sexy as sin he is. We start off the book with Marcus's POV, loved that its dual by the way, and he owns up to his man whorish ways. He never thought he would run into Tessa again, let alone feel the feelings he's starting to feel. The thing is can he change his ways and finally be wiling to commit to one girl if that girl is Tessa, or will his past get in the way of a future he never dreamed about?

"And I want you to keep me here. Please, baby, keep me." -Marcus

The quote up there... best quote ever! I wish I had a guy to tell me that. When I say this book is a roller coaster ride of emotions, I'm not kidding. It's not only about falling in love with your best friends little brother or your sister's best friend. It's about learning to grow as an individual and as a couple. It's about deciding what's worth fighting for and hoping for the best. It's about over coming life's obstacles, learning to love again, and above all trust in someone with everything you have.

"So, like you said before, we need to focus on the good and fuck the bad."-Beck

If you haven't picked up your copy of this book, you need to do so now. You need to fall in love with the way Faith Andrews wrote a strong mother figure in Tessa Bradley and hot bad boy who isn't so bad in Marcus Grayson. You'll also love Riley (the sister/best friend), Beck (Marcus's best friend). and you can't forget Luca (Tessa's son). A full rounded cast of characters for you to drool over, I hope to be reading another book containing Riley's story. *hint hint* :)

Keep me was absolutely adorable. I read it in 24 hours. Tessa and Riley were great friends in high school and past till Tessa went off and got married to a dude she realllllly shouldn't have. He pulled her away from her friends, dominated her life and beat her. Even after she had their son. With a restraining order on him and him in rehab, that should keep her safe and him away. Right?

Marcus, is Riley's younger brother, and hot model. He's had a thing for Tessa for a while. He's known as a player too. But when their careers come together, the heat ignites. Can he prove to her that he's not a play boy and she can trust her heart with him?

Omg this story was so cute. Marcus falling for Tessa, proving himself to her and Tessa trying to let down her guard. And the way he is with her son. I swooned! Marcus is one stand up  strong character in this book!! I loved him. Especially when he says to Tessa "keep me". And he always will protect her. It was adorable! Hot and sweet! Loved!!!
