Sharing Rylee release blitz

Received for an honest review.

I wanted to love this book. I started off loving it. I made it through the painful wait for Rylee to share her secret with Nick and Pete and then part one finished.
Oh great, I thought, the good stuff is going to start to happen but starting part two, with a change in voice from first to third person was incredibly jarring. I absolutely hated the use of it here. It makes describing action so difficult and leads to an increased use of names so every second word is a character's name. It became repetitive. 
I also thought there were too many coincidences. It would've been much better if Nick and Pete were already in a relationship before Rylee, it just played out a little too nicely.
I also felt like the book started in the middle. I know it's the second book in a series but I felt, for those who haven't read book one like myself, if we went back to when Rylee first met Pete it would give a more complete story.
I thought Sharing Rylee was going to be a beautiful story of acceptance and discovery, it was nowhere near that which is a shame, it could've been so much more than just another book.

*By the way, I hate leaving such a harsh review, but it's truly what I feel*

RELEASE BLITZ

Title: Sharing Rylee

Author: D. Kelly

Genre: Romantic Erotica/Menage

Release Date: July 12, 2016

 

BLURB

 

Do happily ever after’s always have to be so traditional?

 

Rylee Stafford has asked herself this question since she was eighteen years old. Now, at twenty-eight she still doesn’t have an answer. One thing she knows for sure is even if she can have the unconventional relationship she’s always dreamed of, it would never fly with her family. Her sexual proclivities would never be accepted by them or their social circle.

 

The truth is Rylee is tired of hiding her feelings. Tired of wanting what she can’t have and so tired of feeling abnormal because she wants a different kind of love. 

 

She’s kept her secret well hidden, especially from Nick, her on again off again love affair. Her secret isn’t their only stumbling block, though—Rylee’s also met someone new. His name is Pete and he sets her heart and soul on fire; he’s sexy, smart, possessive, and he wants her. No matter how much she cares for them she can’t bring herself to tell them the truth. The only way to Rylee’s heart is to have a relationship with both men. 

 

It’s only when Rylee takes her annual vacation does she finally realize her happiness is worth more than what anyone thinks of her. Now the only question is: will Rylee’s alternate lifestyle alienate everyone she loves? Or will she be accepted for the person she’s always been deep down inside?

EXCERPTS

 

Excerpt #1

 

“Nick, I think you should go.”

I feel like she punched me in the gut, but I’m going to take Zack’s lead on this one. He never let Cassidy pull too far away, and I’m not going to let Rylee shut me out now.

Silently, I get dressed. She’s still standing by the bathroom with her arms across her chest. She doesn’t want to get close to me because she doesn’t want to admit her feelings for me.

“Rylee,” I say, walking toward her at a slow pace. She eyes me up and down and presses herself as close to the wall as possible. She’s not getting away from me.

I pull her into my arms and crush my lips to hers. My hand weaves into her sexy, just-fucked hair, and I pull her tightly to my lips. I kiss her with all the passion I’ve had building inside of me for years and she feels it. I know she does because she hasn’t stopped whimpering the entire time her tongue has been dueling with mine. When I finally slow the kiss, she whimpers even more, and when I slowly pull away, her fingers go immediately to her lips as if she’s trying to savor the magic we just shared. 

“I’ll go for now, Ry, but not for long. I’m going to check in on you every day, but I’ll give you space and stay away. Don’t take too long because I want you now more than ever, Rylee. I always have and I always will.” 

I place a soft kiss to her forehead and leave.

 

Excerpt #2

 

My phone rings, and when I see Rylee’s face flash on the screen I pause. It’s almost time to confess my sins and hope she confesses hers, too.

“Are you counting down the minutes?” Her answering laugh has me smiling like a fool.

“I’m excited to see you, yes. I know we’re supposed to meet at five, but Nick needs me to stop by his house for about an hour. Do you mind meeting at six instead?”

I pause intentionally, and Ben shakes his head at me and stifles a laugh. “Don’t let him touch you.”

“I’m sorry, what?” She’s flustered and that’s exactly how I want her.

“You heard me, Rylee. If you’re going to make me wait after I flew in to see you, that can’t be helped. But if you let him put his hands on you before I get my chance, I’m not going to be happy.”

“Feeling possessive?” she fires back.

“Of what’s mine, at least temporarily, hell yeah.”

“I’m yours from six on, Pete, I promise.”

“You’re mine from five on. Nick is borrowing an hour of my time. Remember that.”

“I thought you two made up?” She blows out a frustrated sigh and I want to laugh.

“We did, but I told you when we met I don’t do love triangles. I’ve made an exception for you because we’ve got something, Ry, but once you come back from vacation you’re supposed to have an answer for me. I want your pussy aching from my cock being all you think about while you’re away. My cock, Rylee, not his. See you at six, darlin’.” 

 

 

Excerpt #3

 

I love how open and vulnerable she is today. The more she talks, the longer she stays; she can ask me if the sky is blue for all I care. “Anytime, anywhere, ask away.”

Her hand traces down the side of my face and I pull it to my mouth and kiss it tenderly.

“How many times have you been in love? I mean really in love, with your whole heart.” 

“Only twice.” 

A small gasp falls from her lips “Really? So just me and the love triangle girl?”

“Yes, what about you, Ry?”

“Just you and Pete. I’m so confused. I love him. Well, I’m pretty sure I do, but not like I love you, but not much different, either. Does that even make sense? I swear I’m going crazy.”

“You’re not crazy and believe it or not, it does make sense. You’re falling for him but you’ve loved me longer. It’s natural to love us differently and yet the same.”

“Why aren’t you mad? Isn’t this hard for you?”

“It is… but right now I’m being your friend on the outside. On the inside, I’m feeling a little more like a jealous boyfriend.”

“Is it wrong that the thought of you being a jealous boyfriend really turns me on?”

“Nope, not wrong at all. Too bad you’re not the jealous girlfriend type.” Her eyes narrow into slits and she rolls on top of me.

“Who says I’m not? If I would have walked in here and your fuck buddy from last night would have still been here with her tousled hair and smeared makeup—walking around in her underwear—you would have seen jealous girlfriend come out. I would have taken that bitch down.”

“Bitch? Isn’t that a bit harsh? I mean, you don’t even know her.”

Rylee grinds her pelvis against mine and it breathes life back into my dick. “I don’t want to know who is fucking you, Nick. You may not be mine yet, and I may not have a claim on you… for now at least, but I don’t ever want to see you with someone else.” 

“Why?” I ask, pulling her close so her lips are practically touching mine.

“Because it would hurt too much,” she confesses softly, and my lips take hers in a slow, sensual kiss.

“I wouldn’t do that to you, Ry. Your happiness is my intent, never your pain.”
