    4.5 STARS Sabra has just started working for the Nektosha compa

    4.5 STARS

    Sabra has just started working for the Nektosha company. She started in a little cubicle on the lower floors, but she's planning on one day working upstairs with the big guys.
    Now it's the weekend and she's supposed to be having a good time at the beach with her boyfriend, but it seems he's having a good time with a friend of theirs.
    Not all too sad about the break-up, she's about to leave for home, when her work-phone rings.
    She's being summoned to a fancy hotel to her company's unveiling of the new series of Off-Road vehicles. Not an event such a low-level employee would normally be invited to, BUT all the VPs are stranded in Alaska and it's up to her to represent the company.
    The boss will be there too of course. Tarak Nektosha.
    She has never met the guy.

    But as soon as she hears this sexy dark voice she knows she's in trouble.

    Because as it turns out that voice belongs to none other than boss-man.
    He just sent his 'girlfriend' packing because she looked to cheap for a business event. Nice.
    He shouldn't have started to mix his private and business lives.
    As soon as he sees Sabra he's extremely intrigued though and he grabs her to help him with the presentation.
    Sabra feels like a crushing teenage girl in Tarak's presence.
    He's so sexy and masculine and dark and sexy and grrr...

    After a very successful night Tarak doesn't want to see Sabra leave, but she doesn't accept his invitation into his suite.

    But he's not one to give up ¿

    The next morning she again proves herself in a meeting and Tarak moves her up to his floor and into her own office.

    But Sabra doesn't want personal 'things' to get in the way of her professional life.
    That's when Tarak presents her with a challenging possiblilty. ¿

    A challenge that takes us all the way to Alaska ¿

    And since it's verrrry cold up there, we need to share some body heat ¿¿¿

    But of course everything is not as easy as it could be. Tarak has some left-over hurt from his past and Sabra is not sure if she's ready to fall for and maybe even submit to a guy like Tarak.

    Could there be a future for Sabra & Tarak?
    Will they get their HEA?
    Or will everybody die at the end? ¿¿¿
    Will there be a Cliffhanger? ¿¿¿

    I'm not telling you of course ¿¿¿


    The story was really very sexy and romantic and interesting. BUT I had a few problems with it too.
    I always had the feeling that the book used to be 150 pages longer, and someone cut out most of it - or at least it SHOULD'VE been 100 pages longer. It just felt too short. I would've given 5 Stars if there would've have been a bit MORE - what MORE exactly, I don't really know, but I just needed a bit more ¿

    Which doesn't make the story bad, not at all. I really loved it.
    Tarak is totally different from other book heroes. I loved him!
    And Sabra too. She's really sweet and she's fighting for what she wants.

    I had a few problems understanding the whole two-hundred-thousand-dollar idea. That was probably a bit too complicated for me...I just didn't understand why and what the whole purpose of that was ¿
    But it didn't bother me all that much.

    One thing about the writing that bothered me a bit....the characters always CURLED THEIR LIPS - Dawn really makes them do that a lot. And I really can't picture that in my mind. When I try to picture it, it looks like some kind of wild animal about to bark or bite...And that's not really what Dawn meant... she means they're about to smile or laugh...well - it's just me probably, but I didn't like that.

    But - all ^that^ aside - I really loved the story!!!

    OUT OF BOUNDS was a really erotic tale of two people finally finding their other half ....
    Taking us all the way from beautiful Southern California to the breathtaking Alaskan wilderness.

    The next book in the series FILTHY RICH - coming February 2015 - will be about Sabra's best friend Celeste and Tarak's 'brother' Nartan.
    And poor Nartan....He'll have his hands full with Celeste ¿

    Out of Bounds, Dawn Ryder Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews

    Out of Bounds, Dawn Ryder
    Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
    I have a weakness for the rich, controlling Alpha this looked right up my street. Tarak didn't disappoint right from the start, he's totally in control, cares nothing for the opinions of others, and so self confident he just Knows anyone will do what he wants. So when Sabra gets to a corporate photo op unexpectedly, and he sees her there and wants her, he's astonished that she refuses his “invitation” sent via one of his staff, and leaves. He knows she was attracted. Ladies never refuse him, and it just makes him more determined to have her. Sabra is very attracted to him, but she's worked hard for her job, and takes it very seriously. She knows that the slightest hint that she's involved with Tarak, and her credibility will be shot to pieces. She can't afford, and doesn't want, to let her work go that way. Tarak though takes steps to cover all her arguments, makes her an offer that overrides her concerns, and they quickly get into a heated, erotic, sensual romance. For Sabra her heart is fully in, despite telling herself otherwise and that its just a fling and fun, but for Tarak, well he doesn't give his heart. He's done that and been burned, and vowed never again, but she doesn't give her heart lightly so where does that leave them...?
    Well, what great characters, and what sizzling, sensual, well written love scenes. And they were love scenes, very quickly having evolved from just sex, though Tarak couldn't see it and wouldn't admit it. A great read, but one thing let it down for me, and that's the downside. The bit that makes you greive for them, makes you want to cry..We got lots of working up to and enjoyment of the hot and heavy, but the sad part, where things go wrong, that was very quickly over and me – I like to wallow in that. Barely got a tear out and it was all over, and I need more – that then makes the make up so much sweeter and emotional. It's 240 pages in kindle, so long enough to get fully into characters, but a bit extra length for the break up and I'd have rated it higher.
    Stars: Four.
