This is the city.

Murder and violence is all in a day’s work for Lieutenant Vincent Girardi. But there is something about this murder that doesn’t add up. When a piece of paper with an address written on it is found at the crime scene, Vince believes that perhaps this victim wasn’t the intended target.

This book is so good. I mean SO good. Anyone who has ever read a Jade Cary book, knows how strong and powerful her voice is. She managed to blow me away with her powerful writing. This book left me wanting more. Yes, there was spanking, but the book was so much more. This is not just a typical spanking book. It has so much depth, and had me turning the pages to see what happens next. I loved it! Put this on your READ NOW list.

Wow! I just finished Jade Cary's Bella Rosa- a suspense & spanking (S&S - it's a new genre! ) and it was a wild ride! I was sucked right in from the beginning and swept into the intrigue of Rowan, a smart and sexy surgeon, her drug cartel running ex-husband, an FBI agent out for personal vengeance, and Vince, the lieutenant who tries to keep our heroine safe.

The sexual tension between Rowan and Vince drives the pacing as much as the suspense thread, which is very well done. Vince is all
Unbelievable from start to finish! Jade Cary is an amazing author that doesn't get the credit she deserves! Bella Rosa, like The Point of It ALL (also by Jade Cary) is the perfect combination of crime, suspense, and romance. Strong, independent female meets stronger male to keep her in line and take care of her. Erotic, passionate, intense, funny, you name it! Loved it!

Up until the last third of the book, I was in love with this book. The writing style was amazing--not too much descriptions but not too little, not too much talking inside their heads (I hate that when it's overdone), and the main characters were both awesome. Their playful banter back and forth made for many smiles and laughing out loud! I was so into this book until Vince started treating Rowan like a damn child. I was embarrassed for her! I love the alpha male dominance, but unfortunately it ...more

This is a brilliant novel!

It's a crime thriller mixed with romance. Slightly saucy in parts, but not overdone. It's hard to get a clear thread of romance, sex, and suspense woven alongside violence and crime in a thriller, but Cary does this exceptionally well.

I really enjoyed this book, and it had me on the edge of the seat. It's paced so that there is enough space to fill in the gaps with relevant description that leads you feeling as though you're there watching the scenes unfold amongst love
It was an okay book, I finished reading it in 1 day. To me this has the Sins & Needles vibe to it then add a bit of domination and spanking.
The characters were also more mature, the protagonist Rowan is 39 and Vince the male lead is 46. I didn't like it as much as I was hoping tho. I had a hard time connecting with the characters and the story but hey that's just me.
Thin plot, shallow characters. Even worse is the spanking thing. Consensual play is one thing, but when a man strikes a woman, hard, because he disapproves of her behaviour, that's not "hot." It's assault.

Spank That Romance: Bella Rosa - A NEW Romance Suspense 10 28 Apr 11, 2013 06:42PM  
Jade Cary wrote elaborate fantasies in her head from the time she was a small child. The fantasies included strong men and strong, loving relationships. She discovered romance novels quite by accident, once she'd devoured everything by Stephen King and Joseph Wambaugh. Desperate for something new to read, she picked up The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon. After that, she found Scruples, b ...more
