January 10, 2013 Book Review, Book Tour, Past Giveaways, Romance 5

Hello and welcome to the blog tour for Avoiding Responsibility! I’m sharing a ton of stuff with you today including: My review, a very sexy excerpt, and two exciting giveaways! 


Lexi has finally given up her once destructive relationships and moved onto bigger and better things with a sexy new man in town. Just when she is starting to figure it out with him, her world is tilted once again with a phone call from none other than Ramsey Bridges. A year after his entrance into her life, Ramsey is trying to make amends and does the one thing she never expects—invites her to Jack’s wedding.

The wedding she had evaded at all costs. But no matter what she does, Lexi can’t seem to escape her past with Jack. But does she really want to?

Despite the explosive chemistry between Lexi and Ramsey, she is skeptical about trusting him after everything that has happened. When things are amiss with him, she starts questioning his motives. Can Ramsey be the one to remove Jack from Lexi’s life permanently or should she move on with her blossoming new life?


My Review:

Though I haven’t yet read the first book in the series, Avoiding Commitment, I don’t think it’s necessary in order to enjoy this book. That being said, after reading Avoiding Responsibility I plan on reading the first book, just to get more of these characters.

There was enough back story to understand where everyone’s relationships stand, and the first meeting between Jack and Lexi let me know how strong the chemistry between them is. This is just one of the moments that the author creates so brilliantly. What I enjoyed most about the book is these “moments”. Linde has a knack for creating scenes, especially between two people, that whether they are romantic, angry, or even angst ridden, they are incredibly powerful. Emotions are raw and palpable and the reader is there, captured by the moment, and can feel the heat between the characters. At more than one point I found myself gasping out loud, my pulse-pounding, having forgotten where I was.

There is so much to enjoy in this book: brilliant “moments”, fantastic drama, romance, angst, hot male leads, twists, turns, and surprises. I look forward to reading both the first and third books in the series.

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.


He breathed hot against her, causing her to squirm. “You taste so good.”

“Then don’t stop,” she told him, willing him to continue to touch her. Her body was achingly close.

“Not yet,” he repeated, dropping her leg and righting himself.

She was breathing heavy when he straightened and kissed her breathlessly. “See. Don’t you taste good?”

“God, I need you…now,” she said, as her hand came up and undid the button and zipper of his shorts. Only his tight ass held the shorts up, and she slid her hands to grasp the firm muscles, allowing the shorts to slide effortlessly to the floor.

He pushed her back against the railing, hard. Without the restriction of his shorts, he was clearly visible to her, throbbing, and ready. She groaned at the sight of him, picking up her own leg, wrapping it around him, and wrenching him closer to her. He slid against the length of her cotton underwear slowly, teasingly. Her climax, which had been so close only seconds earlier, was building again with every passing moment of anticipation. “You’re mine?” she murmured to him, half a question and half a statement.

His hands dug into her back as he tried to get closer and closer to her. “Yes.”

“All mine?” she groaned, her hand sinking into his hair and forcing his eyes to meet hers again.
