Blog/Review Tour * Passion In Paradise * Author Sarah O’Rourke

 

 

Nestled in the
foothills of the Smoky Mountains, the beautiful town of Paradise is the perfect
place to raise a family, have dinner at the local diner…and chase a ruthless
killer.
 
Jacob Stone is an undercover
DEA Agent dead-set on getting vengeance for his sister’s death.  When his
sources tell him that the drug dealer he’s been searching for will soon be
setting up a distribution center in the seemingly innocent town of Paradise, he
moves in for the kill.
 
What Jake wasn’t
counting on, however, was falling in love with gorgeous Harmony McKinnon – the
ex-wife of the man he was determined to eliminate.
 
Harmony McKinnon
never believed she’d find love again….not after the horrors she lived through
with her ex-husband.  When she meets secretive Jacob Stone and soon falls
in love, she never expected that her life would be in danger again…or that
the man she’d come to trust would betray her. 
Can Jake make Harmony
understand his motives?  Can Harmony trust him in spite of the past?
Will they have their happily ever after? 
 
Not everything is as
it seems in the sleepy, little town of Paradise, Tennessee!

Hard as Stone is the
second book in the Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters Series,
but is a stand-alone novel (165,000 words) that can be easily read without
reading the first book.
“Roll on your side, baby. I want to take this sweet pussy from behind tonight.”
“But I like feeling you on top of me,” Harmony said, her cheeks burning with embarrassment at her admission.
“Sweetheart, I love being inside you any way I can get in there, but if you’re on your side, I can give you my dick and my finger on that slick little love button of yours.  Trust me, darlin’, you’ll love it when I push that button,” he promised against her lips, nipping her chin with his teeth.
Harmony’s breath caught at the rough edge in his voice and she wasted no time doing as he bid, sighing when his warm lips dropped a kiss against the side of her neck to lick her delicious flesh.  She knew the reward that could be found in Jake’s arms if she took her cues from him, and he didn’t disappoint her when his hand dropped between her legs and two fingers explored her saturated folds.
“So wet, baby,” he growled his appreciation, swirling his finger through her slit and over her swollen clit.  “I love that,” he encouraged against her ear when her legs spread and her hips bucked against his hand.  “Love how soaked and ready you are for me.  Let’s see if you’re luscious little body is ready to take my cock yet,” he muttered, twitching his finger against her nub again as he pierced her with two fingers and pulled a low cry from her lips.
Harmony moaned as his fingers impaled her, fucking deep.  “Oh, God, Jake,” she choked, rocking her hips back into his pelvis as his fingers withdrew only to sink in again a heartbeat later.  
“Oh, yeah, all this sticky sweet honey says you’re more than ready for me, Sweetness,” he growled against her neck as he pulled his fingers from the tight heat of her pussy.  “You want my cock, darlin’?  You want me to fill you up and take away the ache?” he asked, his words vibrating against her skin as one hand curled around her breast and squeezed the firm globe gently.
“Yes,” she whimpered, pushing her head back against his throat as his fingers stroked through her swollen folds again and teased her clit.  “Do it, Jake,” she begged, wriggling her ass against his hardness.  His cock rimmed her entrance, offering her just a taste of heaven, but never truly delivering on the promise.    
He sucked the vulnerable flesh at her neck; she felt his teeth scrape the shell of her ear.  “Tell me first, Harmony.  Who do you belong to?” he asked her, plucking her nipple with his thumb and forefinger before tugging it gently and sending a white hot pulse of pleasure from her stomach to her pussy.  “Who does this gorgeous body belong to?”
“You,” she managed in a voice strangled by pleasure.  Plying her nipple with one hand and her clit with the other, she felt like she was one long exposed nerve ending.  “Stop teasing, Jake, and fuck me.”  She panted roughly as she wriggled against his onslaught.

 Book One:
Sarah
O’Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who bonded over their passion for
romantic fiction and erotica. Born and raised in the southern United States,
one lives near Louisville, Kentucky, while the other resides in Atlanta,
Georgia.  Formerly an accountant and a
chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children,
their husbands…and writing about love in every way possible.
 

Currently focusing on their Passion in Paradise series, they love to write wildly intense
romantica stories that have multiple characters, but each book focuses on one
specific couple that will ALWAYS have a happy ending…eventually!  The Passion in Paradise series follows the
lives of four sisters, who love and infuriate each other – and the men who love
them!  Each book is a stand-alone and
does NOT require the reader to have read the prior books.

From start to end this novel was wonderful!!!  I laughed, I cried, and Jake had me SWOONING!!!  This novel can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the Passion in Paradise Series.  Though I would recommend reading it as a series. The characters are so life-like, exciting, and a total hoot! My favorite character is Aunt Orla. She is just so funny!!!!  She keeps me in stitches!!! 

The story-line contains sensitive material. But the characters stand strong loving and supporting one another through good times and bad. 

Whether you read as a stand-alone or as a series, the authors make it clear the background of the characters. So if read Cain’s Salvation or not, the reader has an understanding of the make-up of each character and what they bring to the series. 

Look for little details while reading.  These little clues will give you a sneak peek into future reads in the series…

Even though there were a few grammar issues, this was a truly great read!!!  So make sure and add this to your reading list.  Then laugh, love, and cry with the McKinnon sisters. I promise the men in this novel are so, so, so!!!!!!  SWOON-WORTHY!!!!!

3.0 Teardrops

Ok, if you are an emotional reader like I am then make sure and have your tissues handy. The chapters that effected me the most were 10, 11, 33, 34, 54 and 55. 

Sisters Harmony and Honor have both had traumatic experiences with the opposite sex. Yet, as mentioned before it is through the love and support of family (blood related and so close they are family) that helps them to survive.  What these two have been through will shatter your heart. Just know that they both have trusting, loving, and strong men to love and protect them now. 

However the tears will not last for long. Soon Aunt Orla will have you  giggling, while the men will have you swooning…

The novel begins with Jake’s POV. He is in the I Don’t Care Cafe watching Harmony work and thinking about the first time that he saw her and talked to her at the cafe. Jake describes his business in Paradise, lets readers know a bit of his past and how he looks. He is one tall and yummy drink of water. Just looking at this fine creation will make woman’s mouths go dry. He is just that HOT!!! With his long hair, tattoo sleeve and his Harley he rides into town on…

Read how one man and one woman who thought love was not for them find that special connection.  It may take a while for the two to realize their love for one another, but the adventure to get there is sweet and sexy. The McKinnon sisters can be feisty when they want to be. In Jake’s case, that attracts him to Harmony even more. Thus also revs up their relationship.  And Jake REALLY knows how to please a woman too! I even sent some scenes to my hubs… he told me they were so naughty…

Will Harmony learn to trust Jake? Will Jake get his Happily Ever After? Shhh… It’s a secret. You will have to read and find that answer for yourself. All I will say is that these men….
