Review: Tori St. Claire's Unravel Me

Title: Unravel Me
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: Tori St. Claire
Publisher: Entangled Brazen
Pages: 173
Language: English
Format: Ebook

I've always been a fan over Entangled Brazen's spicy sexiness, but this book, OMG! Unravel Me is HOT with a capital "H". From the very first chapter, it is a very sexy book. I, personally don't read straight erotic books, not that I have any problems with those that read or write them, so I believe that this book was the sauciest book that I've ever read (no, obviously I haven't read 50 Shades of Grey). 

While it was extremely sexy, Miss St. Claire completely nails the characters. I fanned myself (whew) reading the sexy scenes, but when they aren't in the bedroom, I completely adored the characters. 

The heroine, attorney Cassie Blaire is a wonderfully wounded, but oh-so strong woman. I could totally relate to her and found myself really cheer for her to have a happily-ever-after. And then there is the hero, Brad Steele (grab the fan). I could totally picture him with the way he looks to the little characteristics. I think that he is just one of the sweetest hero. Yes, he needs to be in control and has some pretty dark desires, but he really is a great guy. I like softness and his ability to put himself out there, like the morning after. 

I loved the plot line of the no-name exchange night of passion, then finding themselves on opposing counsel the next morning, each with their views on how the other will be.  I also enjoyed the secondary characters, they were interesting and really added to the story.

The actual writing was amazing. Miss St. Claire is a definite wordsmith. Her descriptions are vivid and interesting. I never felt the need to skip over a passage. And as I mentioned above, the love scenes are pretty amazing. It takes serious talent to write like that and Miss St. Claire definitely has it. 

I would give this book 4.5 stars. I had never read a book by Miss St. Claire, but I've added her to my list of authors to be read. It was a great experience. I will warn readers to have a fan nearby as whew! The story is hot!!!

About the Book:
Letting go might be the key that unlocks her pleasure…

Attorney Cassie Blaire has spent most of her life living by rules. Rules that keep her life sensible, and on the right path. But five years after losing her husband, Cassie is saying sayonara to “sensible.” And it starts now—with indulging a need she’s long denied.

When he arrives in Colorado, all Brad Steele wants is a scotch before he has to play nice in the first face-to-face meeting with his co-counsel in an ugly divorce case. But instead, he finds her—a lush, inviting stranger whose dark eyes invite him to sin…and thirst turns into a raw, undeniable hunger.

Now Cassie is initiated into a world that has nothing to do with being sensible, and everything to do with sensuality. Under Brad’s guiding touch, she’s receiving an education in desire—one that breaks all of the old rules, and explores tantalizing new ones. And once she learns that her naughty one-nighter is her arrogant co-counsel, all of her objections will be sustained…


National Bestselling author Tori St. Claire grew up writing. Hobby quickly turned into passion, and when she discovered the world of romance as a teen, poems and short stories gave way to full length novels with sexy heroes and heroines waiting to be swept off their feet. She wrote her first romance novel at seventeen.

While that manuscript gathered dust-bunnies beneath the bed, she went on to establish herself as a contemporary, historical, and paranormal author under the pen name, Claire Ashgrove. Additionally, she writes strictly historical romance as Sophia Garrett. Her writing, however, skirted a fine line between hot and steamy, and motivated by authors she admired, she pushed her boundaries and made the leap into erotica, using the darker side of human nature and on-the-edge suspense to drive grittier, sexier, stories.

Her erotic romantic suspense novels are searingly sensual experiences that unite passion with true emotion, and the all-consuming tie that binds — love.
