The Ground Rules Rewritten by Roya Carmen ~Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt

Rules2 BT

royaFive simple rules. And it was very simple…until it wasn’t.

It could have been much worse. We weren’t thinking straight and had put everything on the line – risking our marriages. So when Weston ended the arrangement, it was for the best – for all of us. But I was still heartbroken. I thought I’d shatter into a million pieces. I didn’t, I survived. Not only did I survive, I came out stronger and ready to move on with my life.

But then…

Weston reaches out to me. With a few soft words, a gentle touch and a lingering gaze, he crumbles all my efforts.

Neither Gabe nor I want to start this again, and we are determined to fight the temptation. But Weston and Bridget are not taking no for an answer, and the pull between all of us is still so strong.

I tell myself I can handle it this time. This time, I am in the driver’s seat. This time, I am rewriting the ground rules.

First of all HUGE CLIFFHANGER!!!  Holy freakin hell what an ending. I was finally settling with the reality of what was going on and boom! I’m fucked. This is the second Ground Rules book and it’s just as bad ass as the first one.

This book is just crazy good. You’re waiting on pins and needles through out the whole book for all hell to break loose but when it does its not from the direction you think will happen. Wayyyy different direction. But I loved it!!!!

If you’ve read the first book then you know all about the swinging and extreme sexual tension that goes down. If you haven’t read the first one stop here. There will be mention of things that happen from the first book. Mirella, Gabe, Bridgett, and Weston are reunited and it’s awesome. Yes, I know the swinger subject is a little taboo but holy shit is it hot in these books. Rules are made and should be followed, but as you know from book one…. it doesn’t happen like that sometimes. In my book rules are made to be broken and Weston can smash them so damn well. 😉 how could you blame Mirella for wanting to go back for more??? I sure as hell don’t. She’s got her cake and eating it too.

Only the rules this time are a little more aggreable. But they still get smashed to pieces.  The heart wants what the heart wants but sometimes you just can’t have it. I was on my toes from start to finish wondering how this would play out. I am freakin shocked beyond belief and in desperate need for book three. Roya Carman kicks ass and I love her writing.  The sexy ass men she writes are swoon worthy each in their own different way. The woman are not whiny and predictable. They are each different and beautiful in their own ways. You get to learn so much more of the characters in this book more than the first and get an understanding of why they chose this particular life style. I can’t say enough good things about this book. I loved it from start to finish. I fell for the characters even more. Don’t miss out with this series. It’s incredible!!!



Just Plain Dirty – Mirella and Gabe

He catches me staring and shoots me a playful smile. He knows exactly what I’m thinking. I walk over to the bedroom door and lock it – which is basically code for ‘let’s fuck…very quietly’.

He turns off the TV and slides to the edge of the bed, pulling me to him. “Tell me you didn’t fuck him.”

“I didn’t. I wouldn’t do that to you.”

He slides a hand under my tweed skirt. “But you wanted to. You wanted him.”

I grab his face and stare into his beautiful eyes. Words escape me.

He toys with my panties and presses his fingers against the cotton. I close my eyes. I’m already so aroused, and he’s barely touched me.

He teases. His stare is intense as he studies me intently – as if he’s trying to break through, to read my thoughts. He pulls at my panties, not taking his gaze off my face. I anticipate his next move. I want him so badly.

“Take them off,” I practically beg.

His smile is playful when he obliges. He doesn’t take his eyes off mine as he slides the cotton briefs slowly down my legs and over my feet. He kisses my knee, a soft peck.

His warm hand travels up the inside of my thigh. My breath catches when he reaches my sweet spot. He glides his fingers against my sex and I whimper at the sensation. His touch is so amazing.

His eyes close. A whisper of a growl escapes his mouth. “You’re so fucking wet, you dirty girl.”

If you ask anyone to describe me they would say, “Oh, Mirella? She’s such a nice girl.” And that’s true…until a mysterious, peculiar man and his beautiful wife enter our lives.Weston and Bridget Hanson are no ordinary couple—they’re stunning, enigmatic, and sexy as hell. During the course of one unexpected evening, my ordinary world is turned upside down. How could it not be when Weston and Bridget propose the unthinkable? And when the unthinkable is so very tempting, giving in becomes inevitable.It sounds so logical and simple. Just five rules and we can all have what we desire. But the heart doesn’t follow rules, and now passion, jealousy, and confusion threaten to tear everything apart.

Two beautiful couples. Five simple rules. One hot mess.

About The Author

Romance writer, mom, book junkie. I have been writing for over ten years, finding my passion for romance in 2008. When I’m not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, painting, and writing – there is nothing I enjoy more than sitting down at my laptop and making up my own stories – and if those stories should include beautiful men, a little romance, and a few steamy scenes, all the better!
