Snow & Her Huntsman by Sydney St. Claire ♥ Review & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Erotic Romance)

Rylee Kincaid’s business is about to go under. Lucky for her, she’s found an investor. Ready to sign papers, she learns her knight in shining armor is Hunter Finnegan, the man who once gave her multiple orgasms then crushed her young, tender heart. Her world comes crashing down as it becomes clear the rich businessman intends a hostile takeover and to cast her out. Then he agrees to discuss a new deal, but only if Rylee will play Snow to his Huntsman at a BDSM fairy tale event.

Hunter has never forgotten the weekend of kinky sex he shared with Rylee in college. Unfortunately, he had to let her go to keep peace in his family. Now he’s back to claim the only woman he’s ever loved. He’ll stop at nothing to make the black-haired, fair-skinned beauty hear the truth of what happened so long ago, even if he has to tie her up. And that’s exactly what he does. But as the Huntsman reawakens the submissive in Snow, Hunter isn’t so sure he can do the same to Rylee’s heart.

First of all, I am not a huge BDSM fan. I'll read it, but it's not my favorite.

THIS book, however, was an absolutely wonderful mix of the BDSM/kink and the lovey-dovey stuff that saps like me enjoy reading about.

Along those lines, I loved how Rylee was totally believable; a "newbie" to the BDSM scene, she was skeptical, as I assume most people would be, and she did not hold back her feelings in that regard! She even poked some fun at it to get a rise out of Hunter (no pun intended).

Also along those lines, this book wasn't just about the bondage or the domination or the sex. Rylee ad Hunter had a real STORY, and that aspect of the book was so touching and kept me eagerly turning the pages to see what finally happened at the end.

The ending, specifically the private dialogue between Rylee and Hunter in the last scene, is one of my favorites. The things he said to her, even though it was just a few sentences, are now some of my favorite lines from a book!

This is the 2nd book I have read in this series. (I inadvertently skipped book #2 in the series, but these all seem to work just fine as stand-alones).

It was so cool how the 1st book, (I assume the 2nd) and the 3rd book, while all involving different characters, are occurring at the same time. For example, Rylee and Hunter (from this book) were "watching a show" that Jamie and Bryce were also watching in the 1st book. I can't recall a series that has been written this way, and I thought it was brilliant.

Needless to say, the love scenes were HOT, and Rylee and Hunter did things in this book that I never knew were possible. Not only are they possible, but I learned, via Hunter, that these things are done so often that society has given them NAMES! Who knew?!

I will definitely have to double-back and read book 2 in the series, and I am SO excited that book 4 is in the works!!!

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Rylee couldn’t believe what she’d done. She’d totally lost control, something she’d never done with another man but Hunter. Sex between her and her husband had never come close to the heat level between her and Hunter. Her hands dropped from his shoulders to his chest. Palms flat, she wasn’t sure if she wanted to push him away or bunch her fingers in his shirt and draw him even closer. God, what must he think of her? One kiss, and she’d gone up in flames, like a desperate and hungry woman.
Which was true. But to show it and behave in such a manner horrified her. “I…” She didn’t know what to say.
Hunter stepped away, she assumed to give her time to adjust her clothing. He picked up the invitation from the gray carpet. “My limo will pick you up at two on Thursday.”
“Thursday?” Damn, her mind and body felt as though she were swimming through a thick gel.
Handing her the invite, along with a large envelope he snagged off his desk, he held her gaze. “I’ll see you at Pleasure Manor. Your costumes will be delivered to your office this afternoon.”
He tapped the envelope. “Instructions and rules. I suggest you go get your bloodwork done this afternoon. You’ll need to bring the results with you.” Hunter handed her the briefcase and her purse and hustled her to the door.
Rylee blinked in confusion. Damn the man for being in complete control while she was a quivering mass of need. Her orgasm hadn’t eased her ache for this man. But she hated being manipulated, and he was a master. He’d lured her in with hopes and dreams of saving her business and probably used Glorie to make her mad enough that she’d confront him. Now, he’d had the nerve to use her own body against her. “Dammit, Hunter, I never said—”
Hunter halted her with the single lift of his brow. “Your body spoke for you.” He lowered his head and kissed her hard, swallowing her protests. “Thursday. And don’t bother wearing panties.”
