Emotional and Absolutely Romantic Eight Nights to Ecstasy picks up where Seven Nights To Surrender ends with Rylan Bellamy confronting his old demons, namely facing the board members of his father’s company and claiming his heritage. Three months after Kate walks out of Rylan’s life in Paris he grabs the opportunity to make amends with her, convincing Kate seven more nights to prove he can earn her trust. Though she left Paris brokenhearted, Kate still loves Rylan but needs to guard her heart more than ever. This time, though, Rylan will do anything to have her in his life. But Rylan’s fight to regain power in the company is proving a difficult task, and with his sister’s help, Lexie, he’s determined to run the business his way. Eight Nights to Ecstasy is beautifully written, a perfect blend of angst, romance, and passion. It’s also a journey of self discovery for both Rylan and Kate as they navigate around conflicts in their new relationship. I just love these two strong and likable characters because the desire for love and growth is so palpable and relatable. Rylan is so nurturing of Kate’s sexual apprehensions, and with encouragement guides her to heights of pleasure. Ms. Grey pens a heartwarming romance of second chance that is intensely emotional and chocked full of steamy goodness that does not disappoint. I loved it.

4.5 Stars I highly recommend starting with the first book, so there's no time spent wondering why things started out the way they did. The author eventually tells you why but a good portion of the book passes without knowing. This is a well written, beautiful, off the charts steamy romance between two people from opposite sides of the track. This author knows how to write a male lead who knows how to worship his woman. Sizzling HOT! The sexual chemistry between Rylan and Kate is explosive! Chapters 21 and 29...WOW! So good I actually remember the chapter numbers. Both characters have their issues and some of them are deep-seated. Watching them work through them and have their "aha" moments made you want to jump up, point at both of them and say "FINALLY!" Great story! I can't wait to read the next book in The Art of Passion series. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

I really enjoyed this second and concluding part to Rylan and Kate's story! Though they get back into bed together pretty fast, Rylan can see that while Kate might be willing to surrender her body to him again, she's keeping her emotions under tight guard and it's not going to be as easy as he'd hoped to convince her that they belong together after his seven night trial period is up. I thought Kate was quite smart actually - she knows that she can't resist her sexual attraction to Rylan so she doesn't try. The result is some seriously steamy scenes between them, but it's not until later in the story that her heart starts to get involved again. Rylan is still struggling through much of this story with his identity as the son of a corrupt businessman (now in jail) who'd been groomed to take over and had instead fled to Paris to get away from his responsibilities. Just because he's back in New York doesn't mean he wants that job, but he's forced to do something about the company, especially as his sister Lexie is counting on him to help her withstand a hostile takeover by other board members. He's got 90 days to prove that he's the right man to lead the company, which is particularly difficult since he doesn't believe it of himself. But as the story progresses, through his interactions with Kate and his sister, he finally is ready to take on the yolk of responsibility and for the right reasons. Up to now, he'd always been trying to protect his younger brother Evan (who he sent away to protect him from their father, and as a result is estranged from him still) and his sister Lexie from their family, instead of really being a part of the family with them. These revelations rock him to the core and help him realize the mistakes he's been making. And along with understanding what his family role is supposed to be, he becomes aware that to be a man worthy of Kate's trust he needs to work harder at being totally open and honest with her, about everything. This means sharing the parts of himself that he's always kept closed off. Kate is not without her own faults. As a result of having an abusive father, she has low self esteem and trust issues. In Paris with Rylan, her sense of self worth had increased dramatically with his confidence in her artistic talent, and despite the fallout of their relationship there, she had taken some of what he said to heart and gone back to college to further her education in fine arts. She's struggling with her latest assignment, and it's only with Rylan's introduction back into her life that she realizes he had set her free in Paris to find her artistic muse - and that her muse is him. He's very physically attractive and the sketches she did of him in Paris were imbued with her growing feelings for him. But it's not just trusting Rylan that is the issue - it's trusting herself enough to open her heart to the man who broke it the first time. It's only when Rylan shows her how much he's changed that she is able to admit to herself that she loves him. At the beginning her hot and cold reaction to Rylan was somewhat frustrating, but she redeemed herself by the end. I love a hero in pursuit story, and that's what we have here, as Rylan takes these nights and days with Kate to build up their relationship again. In the end their love proves true. 4.5 stars for this steamy and emotional conclusion to their romance.

Eight Ways to Ecstasy is a sensual overload of sexiness. I received an ARC of Jeanette Grey's latest tempting novel in exchange for an honest review. I am a new recruit to Ms. Grey's work. She has the shock value along with the spicy factor on her side with Kate and Rylan's story but I felt like I was missing something. Eight Ways to Ecstasy had me feeling like I walked in at the midpoint of the story and it was hard for me to catch up. It could have been that I had not gotten the chance to read book one in the series but I was in a confused state most of the story.
