Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it "a compulsively readable book."

Interesting enemies to lovers storyline! I was quickly drawn into the plot as two strong characters each put their stand point out in front of us quickly. When they come face to face and the attraction is out of this world hot, it's fun to watch them decide to forget about business for a few days and simply enjoy! Fun read. Businessman Roman Bassani goes above and beyond for his clients, so when he has an offer that has to be presented in a hurry, he has no choice but to track down the owner of the business he wants to acquire while she's on vacation! Allie Landers might be in need of investors to save her business from downfall, but she's not willing to walk away from her passion project. She will stay at the helm and find someway to make it work ... regardless of how she feels about the sexy man in front of her promising the moon!

Let's start this review with the facts this is a hot steamy read with two main characters who know what they want. But it's more than being hot and steamy because it involves a female main character that has taken a very rough childhood and used it to help other women in abusive situations to have a safe shelter while using her gym, Transcend, to help finance it in part. Now it gets a little tricky. Allie is pigheaded and fighting change, so she escapes for a while to relax before her life changes forever and breaks her heart. For me the area around her going on the preplanned vacation is well thought out and presented in a believable way. It is something I would do knowing the problem will still be there when I get back and well it was already paid for. Roman is that hot alpha with a hidden soft side most people never see. I found him to be true to his integrity and his shock when he finds out who his one-night stand is was priceless. So, the relationship that develops between Roman and Allie was plotted by the author in a manner that shows them both off as strong decisive people. Allie did drive me crazy with her not willing to let Roman talk or even present his case for the business offer. But like many people pride and wanting to take of it themselves stood in her way. The reader will be very pleased with the ending to this hot, hot story for this reason I give it 4 STARS.

Another hot and steamy read from Katee Robert, this one with a bit of twist on the enemies to lovers story line. I really loved the whole set up of this one. Allie and Roman only know each other by name, so when attraction finds them in bed together before even knowing each other’s name, neither can ignore the chemistry and passion that they ignite in one another – even though they are supposed to be on opposite sides of a business deal, something that takes both of them by surprise when they finally get around to sharing their names with each other. Roman comes to see Allie as so much more than a business deal and way more than a vacation fling, but getting past her trust issues and her inability to lean on others for support and help is not easy. My only minor issue with this one was with Allie’s refusal to even hear Roman out with regards to the business proposal. I did like the them agreeing to continue the fling with a “no business” clause to it – even though we all knew how that was going to work out – but, I was never really sure what Allie’s issues were that kept her from at least listening to Roman and kind of felt like I missed something. And even with the disclosure agreement that Roman was under I still kind of felt that Allie could have asked more questions to learn a bit more before shutting him down. Not a huge issue, but something I did find myself thinking about more than once through this book. This was a quick read, but there is tons of the steam and heat that Katee Robert always knows how to deliver, as well as, two characters that you just couldn’t help but like. This is the second book in the series but it can easily be read as a standalone. Like most everything from this author, this one is definitely worth checking out!

This is a hot and steamy, enemies to lovers contemporary romance. Roman Bassani is an intermediary, helping broker takeover deals and investment opportunities for his clients. His latest challenge is even getting to talk to Allie Landers to put his business deal to her but she's proven so elusive he's followed her to the idyllic private island resort she's staying at for a well earned seven day vacation. However, when they first meet they are unaware of the true identity of each other and the attraction between them is scorching hot! What happens when reality steps in, well you'll just have to read it yourself to find out! What more could you want - a steamy romance set on a paradise island, a story packed with romantic encounters and a couple struggling with the dilemmas of associating mutual attraction and business conflicts. Both are fiercely independent but love makes them vulnerable. Can they find a way to work together for the good of her business and for the sake of both their hearts? What happens when they leave the resort and return to their work roles? If you like your romance hot and passionate, check out this series - and others from Harlequin Dare - they definitely fit the genre! Add in a talented author and your on to a winner IMHO. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this relatively quick but entertaining read to anyone who enjoys their romances with a large helping of spicy action to flavour it. I requested and received a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my personal opinion and review after reading the book.

3.5 stars--spicy and decadent 3.5 stars--MAKE ME CRAVE is the second instalment in Katee Robert’s contemporary, adult MAKE ME erotic, romance series. This is investment consultant Roman Bassani, and gym owner Allie Landers’ story line. MAKE ME CRAVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Allie and Roman) MAKE ME CRAVE follows the building relationship between investment consultant Roman Bassani, and gym owner Allie Landers. Allie Landers’ business, a gym and women’s shelter, is bleeding money. Close to bankrupt, and in desperate need of funds, Allie’s pride pushes our heroine towards foreclosure, when she refuses to accept an offer from a potential investor. Enter Roman Bassani, the man with whom Allie will fall in love but the man whose client wishes to remain anonymous in the face of Allie’s fears and mistrust. Allie Landers has a difficult time trusting men, and none more so than the man who is hoping to have Allie sign on the dotted line. A much needed island vacation finds Allie coming face to face to Roman Bassani, a vacation that turns into something more as Roman pursues our heroine for more than just a business arrangement. The highly sexual relationship between Allie and Roman begins while on an island vacation but Allie’s inability to trust, and let go of her pride, pushes at all of our hero’s buttons. Unwilling to hand her business over to an unknown investor, our heroine stands on the precipice of losing it all, including her relationship with Roman Bassani. The numerous $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. MAKE ME CRAVE is a spicy and decadent story of insta-lust; of one woman’s inability to let go of her pride, and one man’s need to prove he is much more than the bottom line. The premise is entertaining ; the characters are animated; the romance is hot, heavy and energetic. MAKE ME CRAVE will stimulate your mind on a lazy, sunny afternoon

Although short Make Me Crave packed a punch . It was hot, steamy, funny and highlighted a serious issue. I enjoyed this book quite a bit especially the heat between the main characters. It was palpable, practically leapt off the pages. I loved the chemistry between these two plus the bit of hate that was mixed in. If you're in the mood for a quick, steamy book I definitely recommend this. ARC provided by publisher through Net Galley in exchange for a honest review

This was a very hot little novella, and I enjoyed the characters' connection. I only wish they'd done a little more talking along the way... Roman Bassani is a shark. He knows what he needs to do in his business, connecting investors with struggling businesses, and he does it VERY well. He is determined to get a gym owner to sign the contract he's presenting her with, but she's thwarting him at every turn, and never returns his phone calls. He's getting desperate as the deadline nears, and he's willing to do anything to pin her down. When he discovers she's vacationing on a secluded private island, he pulls some strings to get himself a reservation there as well. He will convince her it's the best thing for her business, if it's the last thing he ever does. Allie Landers is drowning. Her business is barely staying afloat, and she's been putting everything it's made into her other, connected business, a women's shelter. She's determined not to let down everyone who depends on her, and she's determined to continue doing it alone. She can't stand the thought of taking on an investor who will have a say in her operations, especially if they won't want to continue the women's shelter as it is, which is the true project of her heart. So, she's been avoiding Roman like the plague. But when he tracks her down to her private getaway, and sparks fly, how can she continue to resist him? Roman and Allie's chemistry jumped off the page. I really loved their connection, and I loved that Allie, while she was a curvy girl, had basically no body image issues, and was happy with herself and her appearance. And I really loved how Roman worshiped her just as she was. Their sexy times were super steamy, and I enjoyed watching them get to know one another. My only real gripe, though I know it would have gone against the entire deal they struck with each other, was I truly wish they would have just talked more. Allie was so determined to keep it only about the physical, and while I understood her reasoning, by the end of the week she just wasn't being honest with herself at all, much less with Roman. I really like seeing strong friendships in the books I read, but especially between women. I really enjoyed Allie's best friend, Becka. I'm assuming she'll be a future heroine in the series, as she's also the sister of the heroine from book 1, and I'm definitely looking forward to that! She was no nonsense and totally honest with Allie and called her out on her stuff, and I loved that. Roman's good friend was helpful in that way as well, and I liked their interactions. I liked this book, and I'm definitely looking forward to more in the series. Since there's no epilogue, I'm really hoping we will see more of this couple in the next books. I'd love to be able to check in on them in the future!

Trying to do the right thing leads in a naughty direction. Make Me Crave is that perfect blend of spice and nice with an overlay of humor and heart. Allie and Roman have a chemistry that's off the charts. Pushing buttons as they ignite heat. Robert is a magnet for steamy romance that hits on every beat of my heart. Love breathes fire and Crave delivers.
