BLOG TOUR REVIEW - Unleashed, Volume I by Callie Harper

Unleashed BT Banner   Unleashed Volume 1 Cover   Blurb     
Unleashed, Vol. 1: Hot Alpha Romance
(Beg For It series)

Declan Hunt
I never thought I’d see her again. The one I couldn’t have, the one I’d never forget. When I met her I had nothing, a lowly ranch hand working on her daddy’s land. She was the golden girl up on the hill, sexy as hell but beyond my reach. Now, like all my fantasies realized, she’s come to me for help.

I’m a bastard, ruthless in pursuit of my goals. My cold, hard drive has made me what I am today, amassing wealth and power. A good guy would help her, then send her on her way with a handshake and a smile. I’m not a good guy. I’m going to make a bargain and hold her to it.

One week. I’ll bail her out, pay off all her debts, but only after she gives herself to me completely. Seven days and seven nights of no-holds-barred submission to my dominance. I’m a demanding man with dark, relentless appetites. She’s unleashed the beast in me and I won’t stop until I possess all of her.

Six years ago he broke my heart. Now, with nowhere else to turn, I’ve put myself at his mercy. He’s the ultimate alpha male, commanding and controlling, and I’ve agreed to let him use me as his plaything for a week. I’m terrified of how he’ll take me, what he’ll make me do to serve all of his needs.

I’ve got to keep this week all business. It needs to stay a transaction pure and simple, no emotions in play. I’m scared as hell about the power he wields over me.

Because I have a dirty secret. I’ve never gotten over him. I’ll fight hard to keep up all my defenses even as he melts them down. But the truth is that the thought of serving him has me panting, wet and practically begging for everything he has planned.

NOTE: Unleashed is a four-volume story launching the Beg For It series about the hot, alpha males in Declan's family and the battles they wage with the strong, sexy women who make them finally meet their match.

This book alternates between the summer Declan and Kara met six years prior and the present. While I found this to be an entertaining start to this series, I have to be honest and say that I find Declan to be a first class assnugget in regard to his feelings about Kara in the present time frame. I understand that one has to be ruthless in order to be successful in the cutthroat world of business, but his attitude towards Kara in the current time frame leaves me feeling like I need to spork him in the taint.

I have no issues with Kara, either when she was a senior in high school (when she first met Declan), or now. We've all done ridiculous things in an attempt to get the object of our crush to notice us, so who can fault her for doing some of the things she did back then? And the young woman she became is still true to herself (for the most part). Her primary focus is to save her father's ranch, not try to be someone she's not, although I did get a kick out the part of the story when she decided to go all glamazon for the dinner meeting with Declan.

Declan had a craptastic childhood that has left him jaded yet cyncial. There's no doubt that he had a good idea back when he was just a ranch hand, so good for him that he was able to make that a successful business venture. But his attitude toward Kara when she went to his office irritated me like you wouldn't believe. Without giving away too much of that part of the story, I will say that proposition he presented Kara with would have had him being sued quicker than he would change his socks. I got the feeling from reading his POV that he wanted some type of retribution against Kara by showing her that he is now in the power position. Which I could understand if it was all about some type of revenge against her, but she was clearly into him six years ago, so why the douchenozzle act now?

No sexuals happened in this installment, although the scene at the restaurant was seven kinds of hot, enough that I can't wait to read the next part to see what happens between these two.

I like to fight and I like to f*ck.
Now’s my shot to fight for real, step out from my billionaire father’s shadow and be my own man. This summer’s all about going after my goal of becoming a pro MMA fighter. The problem is the girl I want to f*ck. She’s driving me crazy with her little yoga outfits, her creamy skin, luscious curves and wide-eyed innocence. Normally, I’d hit it and quit it, get her out of my system and focus. 

But she’s my goddamn stepsister. And she hates me. This summer we’re supposed to spend eight weeks together living under the same roof. I need to taste her. 

I won’t rest until she’s writhing beneath me, begging me to let her come. I’m a man who gets what he wants, and what I want now is Jewel. 

I want him so bad it hurts. I’ve never felt this way before. 
I’ve never had a problem keeping my distance from bad boys. The more muscles, tats and testosterone, the more I ran the other way. I learned my lesson, growing up with a trainwreck of a mother. 
Until now. 
Tuck makes my panties melt. He keeps me up at night, twisting in the sheets, obsessed with fantasies while I touch myself. 
But he’s my stepbrother. And he’s an alpha, dominant asshole. 
We’re sharing a house and he’s walking around shirtless, every inch of him ripped with hard muscle, sweaty after his brutal workouts. I don’t think I can hold out much longer. I’ve always been the good girl, but he makes me want to be bad.
