RELEASE, the debut novel by Rebecca Lynn, is Book 1 of the new Iris Series and the perfect blend of steamy erotica and sweet romance.
Two and half years after the death of her husband, twenty seven year old Ryann Thornton is finally ready to embrace life again. Goal oriented, driven, and beautiful, she has a new career, a new home, and if she can work through her doubts and insecurities, possibly a new love.
Jeremy McCallister is dominant, gorgeous, and talented. He's a notorious ladies’ man and one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors. When he sees Ryann Thornton standing in the rain, he has to have her, and when he goes after something, he gets it. However, he’ll have to work hard to convince Ryann they’re compatible both in and out of the bedroom.
When Ryann discovers her new career poses a conflict in her relationship with Jeremy, she uses it as an excuse to run scared. Will Jeremy be able to persuade her to take a risk, or will circumstances beyond their control stand in the way of their happiness?
Release begins with Ryann, and Jeremy first seeing each other when Ryann has car trouble in the rain on her way an art show. Her whole world is fixing to change by just glancing at Jeremy through a window.. Once she finally arrives at the art gallery she sees Jeremy again. This time though the attraction is undeniable, and Jeremy is bound and determined to have her. These two continue to dance around it because Ryann is scared, but Jeremy is very relentless and doesn't give up on her.
But other problems arise that try to keep them apart.
Jeremy and Ryann had a sweet passionate relationship. It was a very nice romance, and it made the book enjoyable. I really did like Release. The writing was good, and I enjoyed all of the characters. Most of the side characters I hope to see get their own story like Ryann's best friend for instance. The only thing that bothered me was the first half of the book seemed a little bit forced, like it just didn't flow very well, and I was sometimes bored with it. But then the rest of the book was very interesting, and very enjoyable. I am actually looking forward to more in this series as well!
