When I'm with You: The Complete Novel (Because You Are Mine, #2)When I'm with You: The Complete Novel by Beth Kery

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Sexy Stars

When I’m with You is a light BDSM read with a cooking theme.


Elise is a rich girl, but she can’t tap into her trust fund until she turns twenty-five. She finished cooking school and wants to mentor with a chef. Lucien is rich, owns an exclusive restaurant and has corrupted father. Lucien is a man who knows what he wants and what kind of women he wants in bed. Elise aligns herself w

Week two and this story is still keeping pace. I guess the waiting is not to bad either. Even tho the physical relationship between these two has not went any further. It appears Lucien is beginning to have a more understanding for Elise

Lucien has so much to learn about Elise. I cant believe how little trust he gives her, but expect it from her.

"he’d never believe her, given all the hyped-up press about her."

I think its amazing how these two both come from money and are so determined to make i

A really sexy, steamy, and erotic book. Again as with the first book with all the sex toys and the manner they are used to full fill a couples complete satisfaction. I mean this woman had at least 5 or more orgasms and she still is ready to please her man SOME MORE. I wish I was Elise but with all her stamina and strength plus more. The male character, Lucien is one really gorgeous man with a sexy french accent. He is also a bit of a Superman in bed. All I needed was for the Superman and Superwo ...more

No head way is made in the relationship, Lucien doesn't trust Elise and Elise won't trust Lucien. They have their secrets and they are not talking to each other. I like watching Lucien hold back his desire and how Elise drives him crazy. A little intrigue is thrown in to the mix, why is Lucien spying on Ian? Of course left off on a sexy cliffhanger.

Elise present you the story of the #2
" could continue to fill in until you find one. With any luck, the chef you hire will want a stage. Knowing the
caliber of chefs you always choose in your restaurants, I’m sure he or she will be acceptable to my school in order to get
my degree. .”

Beth presents mixed emotions ....
Elise welcomed the opportunity for temporary escape from Lucien’s disturbing, compelling presence. She didn’t want him to
know how stupid she felt, how inadequate.

How could she p

Each part I read just leaves me craving more- luckily I don't have to wait long.
I think I might have figured out why Lucien is interested in Ian- There are 3 things in this part that send out signals I am now excited to see if I'm right. If you are reading this series too comment below if you think you know too and we can exchange notes. I also am still getting annoyed with Lucien as he still thinks Elise is a spoiled, wealthily child- I can't wait until he finds out where she lives and her othe
Francesca the Fierce (Under the Covers Book Blog)

The relationship between Lucien and Elise is intensifying. I am liking the side of Elise that is out there looking to better herself and not rely on her father’s position and money. This is something that Lucien needs to learn about her.

They haven’t gotten to full sex yet, and there’s a reason for that. I’m anxiously awaiting to see what will happen with that. But this episode was not without heat. The tension between Lucien and Elise is steamy.

I am very curious about the Ian/Lucien connection

So this 24 year old beautiful woman who has used her sexuality to manipulate men for years, who is known for giving head on a regular basis and dance half naked on tables is actually, are you ready for this.....a virgin. OMG, how original, the thing that had me interested for just a millisecond was the thought that maybe she wasn't. Why is it that Doms always fall for a virgin. So predictable and unoriginal.

Beth Kery gives us a little more of her story with Elise and Lucien. The scenes are hot and just leave you wanting more. The entire time I was waiting for Lucien to continue to tame Elise.

The story is picking up steam now so hopefully the next installment will really get cooking with Lucien & Elise. Nice to find out that not all is what it seemed with their characters.

20 swats have never felt so long and un-ending. I began to wonder about this spanking. I feel as if I am getting bread crumbs. Something is missing for me.

Elise is feisty but Lucien knows exactly what she needs even when she thinks he is crazy. It is a sexy continuation.
