I wish she could just release normal books... Or at least more than two (2) chapters at a time.
I'm not a fan of this new serialized format. What is the point other than to charge me a lot of money for 2 chapters of a book? Ms. Kery does know how to write a great story and I really enjoyed Ian and Francesca's story, but at $2.oo a pop for less than 50 pages...not sure I can do it a 2nd time. I've already got the 2nd installment pre-ordered but that may be as far as I go.

The series seem very interesting and I am looking forward to the next book. I think this is going to be my second favorite short book series but i am going to be apprehensive first.
Francesca the Fierce (Under the Covers Book Blog)

There’s an aura of sexy that surrounds the serials Beth Kery creates. This time we have one of Ian and Francesca’s friends (from Because You Are Mine). Lucien Lenault is a rich and powerful man in Chicago, with a secret past in France. He owns a successful restaurant, and at his restaurant is presented with a sight he wasn’t expected. His chef is there trying to seduce a woman, who ends up being none other than the girl their families had expected he’d marry.

Elise is in Chicago to fulfill her d...more
I hate serial novels, but I was pulled in by the pretty picture and because it was Beth Kery. The first chapter quickly establishes Lucien and Elise, and their past. Elise was a wild, party girl that didn't know what she wanted from life. Lucien was the controlled and cool, older man. They were attracted to each other but a misunderstanding tore them apart.
Elise wants to be a chef in Lucien's restaurant, but Lucien doesn't like the idea because he is still attracted to Elise. They push each oth...more

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...more

Just when I said I woukd never do this to myself again. I find myself back in the trap that Beth Kery has set for me.

Another weekly, two chapters at a time, 8 part series, that once I complete will be over my personal book limit price....dun dun duuuun. I know. I need to be commited to rehab for my excessive addiction to mommy porn.

So I have to admit that the story kinda started out slow, because of that dreadful need to setup a back story for the characters. When I was thinking that it was time...more

When We Touch, you set me on fire!
Oh this was hot and they didn't even reach the main goal :D
Lucien Lenault you are a hot piece of male candy :) I love an alpha male with a spice of BDSM on the mix.
Elise you're going to drive this man crazy and I'm going to enjoy every single second of it :D
A new encounter leads these two, into each others arms, after a past of mysteries and lust unconsumed.
This first instalment was sexy and intense, with both their wills being tested and some limits being cro...more
i thought am done her with the series and finished but here is lucien ...that didnt attracted me much untill i found that Ian & Francesca will have a part and #3 is out named " because we belong"
Beth You Are The Devil.

★first, this series stars after a year of both Ian and Franscesca are together
★second, well..to get you reading Lucien Lenault is plotting something against Ian and he even changed his name .that is reason Lucien is in Chicago not paris at The Fusion rest.
it may have something...more
I hate these serial series books, but I can't put them down. I learned my lesson with BK last serial series and this time I waited until all 8 books were out to get them. This one starts of good, piquing my interest. Lets see how books 2-8 go. Looking forward to them.

Usually the claim of 'worst book ever' is awarded to a novel for a few weeks or even months before I come upon one I dislike again so quickly. I was willing to try this one because, well, I like to try new things. I like to try new books because it is so much fun to give them to patrons who are looking for something new and I might find a new favourite. I hate that feeling of an empty bedside table more than I hate the feeling of trying something new. So. This one was not worth finishing. I got...more
Mmmmm vediamo come andrà avanti ... Sono contenta di sapere altro di Francesca e Ian anche se la storia non è la loro...comunque voglio scoprire qualcosa di più sullo chef vediamo come la storia evolverà
I've decided that I am not too fond of the Pt 1-Pt ? books. I hate paying for 2 chapters at a time, especially if the first chapters don't pull me in.

These installments are quick reads at approx. 60 pages and they leave me craving more!
I think it's kind of fun to get a new installment every week - it's like a present delivered to my kindle tuesday morning for the next 7 weeks!
Lucien has a lot of back story that I can't wait to find out about. Elise well Lucien seems to have an imagine of her that doesn't seem to fit her now but Lucien has yet to find out what exactly Elise has gone through to get to where she's at- It's going to be interestin...more
A good erotica, very HOTT and our leading man is sexy as F*ck!!!! I like the story it has a little of that BDSM in it but not enough to turn me off. 4 stars love!!!

What the hell is going on with this cover? Spaghetti pearls? I have zero interest in reading this book, but the cover... I couldn't help it.
Really couldnt get into the story maybe will get back to it at some point.
So far, I've read books 1 - 5 in this series. I generally don't like reading books in parts or installments like this, but I've read Beth Kery before, and enjoyed her work.
I feel like this book is written well enough, but the fault lies with me here, (or maybe it doesn't) because there are so many books based on the same premise (dom/sub). I would have liked to see something that made this book stand out from the rest. In that regard, so far, the series is a little disappointing. I may change my...more

Not much to say right yet. It has been okay so far. Just 2 chapters down so not really a lot. I like that Ian has been included (scandal??) in this already.

When I found out this book was about Lucien and Elise I wondered whatever happened to Zoe from "Because You are Mine". I was pleased to find out what happened with her - not a lot of explanation but enough that I knew what happened to her.

Still can't give a full review because only a few things have happened so far. Although, I think he's too...more
I'm not feeling this one as much as the previous series, I don't really get Lucien and I don't understand why a strong willed Elise would so easily give into submission. Maybe the follow up will enlighten me.
Excelente trama, de las mejores que he leido hasta ahora. Y sinceramente Lucien y Elise me han parecido muchisimo más interesantes que Ian y Francesca. La historia esta bien desarrollada y Lucien a pesar de su pasado no tiene ese trauma taaaaan marcado como otros personajes del genero. Lo adore, quiero leer la continuación de esta historia. Sé que no dejaran de sorprenderme.
Very short story with minor details. It includes some flash backs to understand the characters.

The language is very simple and easy to understand.

The actual plot was too boring for me.

I will however read the entire series to find out what happens (obviously, why else would I read it?)
This is just the 1st book in the series ( 8 parts) and I really enjoyed it. But, it is the second book behind "Because you are mine" which should be read 1st. I loved both of them. Great characters! Hope there is a 3rd - it left a couple a story lines open.
I am hoping the story line gets better. So far a bunch of mysterious questions and Lucien's weird idea about sex and his control problems. I was surprised that Elise consented or submitted to him. Hopefully the next installment is better.
Well well...I think I need a cold shower right now!!!So hot!
I like Lucien, even if he is controlling like his friend Ian..but I like Elise even better...there's fire between those two and I can wait for more!!!

I enjoyed her writing, I only have 3 stars because it bugs when authors write small books & stretch it out over 3 or 4 books.
Just write one 300 or 400 page book!
Anyway that was my only complaint.
