Review @Mandy_Harbin - Surrounded by Pleasure by Mandy Harbin (Woods Family #2)

Surrounded by Pleasure
Woods Family #2
by Mandy Harbin

Goodreads blurb:  Krista Owens is an attorney who works too much and plays too little. When her colleague, Mikaela, requests her assistance for a month on the Woods estate, hinting that her brothers-in-law are all hot with commitment phobias, Krista agrees to tell the guys she has a boyfriend, hoping to finally lose her virginity.

Toby Woods doesn’t want anything to do with Krista, but watching his brothers fight over her ignites his feral side. He wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her.

He knows it’s temporary, but will he be able to let her go when it’s time?

About the Author:  After reading Danielle Steel’s Summer’s End, Mandy became hooked on reading romance. Of course she was probably too young to be reading books like that at the time, which made it even that much better! She dabbled in writing throughout adolescence and justified studying it in college under that wonderful umbrella of liberal arts. Living in Arkansas, she figured writing was a dream and not a career, so when she went back to get her master’s degree, she studied business. It wasn’t until she was staying up late to write—after working full-time, spending time with the family, and studying mind-numbing business nonsense—when she realized something had to give. The love of writing prevailed. She still lives in Arkansas with a few classes shy of an MBA but now with more time to submerge herself in her craft.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

The cover is another one I definitely like, but I have a thing for big cats especially the shifter kind ;)

This is another novella length about 90 or so pages, and it is the 2nd book in this series.  This is for adults only due to the sexual content, and it is very steamy :)  I got this book in a bundled shifter set I bought.

Reviews for me are always difficult because I think your mood and feelings always have an effect on what you think of a book when you read it.  This is also why I try to get my reviews done as soon as I finish a book or at least for me I start losing my thoughts.  I don’t always mention this, but my reviews are always on my enjoyment of the story and I try to add things that someone might find useful when deciding whether or not the book is for them.  So always go with your own gut on whether a book is one you will enjoy because you know you best :)

I was again pulled into this fabulous world that Mandy created and loved every minute of it.  This is unusual for me because I tend to want non-stop action when I read my books, but this is more sexual and dating drama associated with shifters.  Mandy just does an amazing job with details and her storyline that everything fits beautifully together making a fantabulous story that works all around.

This is Krista and Toby’s story, but the whole Woods family is part of the story which I love because I’d have missed Mikaela and Josh if they were not part of the story too!!  The shifter mysteries are unwrapping and things are starting to fit together nicely, but I about died when the book ended because she totally hooked me at the end for the next story.  So now I’m probably going to have to get the next two books like NOW so I can read them after I finish a couple other reviews.

I highly recommend this book to all who enjoyed book 1 especially to my shifter lovin’ friends because it is purrrfectly delightful :)
