Since UNCORKED, romantic suspense novel by Rebecca Rohman , wil put you in the right mood for a tête-à-tête with your significant other, my thoughts about the book come with 'candlelight dinner' menu and wine pairing. Visit MINA'S BOOKSHELF for an extended review. Enjoy ;)

This contemporary debut novel, authored by indie writer Rebecca Rohman, is labeled as "romance with elements of suspense." Well, the label may not adequately describe the intensity and

This was an interesting story that approaches a very difficult topic in a captivating way. I found myself wanting to know more and more about the lives of these interesting characters and the trials that they faced. I was scared for the characters, yet at the same time thrilled to see how much they accomplished, and how well they were able to overcome everything that came at them.

Some of the conversation and dialogue in this novel seems rather forced and unnatural. It is not written the way that

I have to say I really love Ms Rohman's writing style. Each paragraph, sentence and chapter has just enough description to keep you hanging, wanting to read more. Ms Rohman has avoided the angsty backwards and forwards story line where you just want to bang the character's heads together. Don't get me wrong this story is jam packed full of drama, action, love, lust and mystery. But Ms Rohman's writing style kept the story moving without lingering story lines.

Uncorked is not a typical romance novel. It's full of suspense, and twists and turns. This book kept me on my toes. Just when you thought, you have it all figured out or things would calm down, another piece of the story is revealed and you have to keep going. The emotion between Chella Noon & Mitch Mariani was beautifully written. This book had me shedding tears with the characters. The pressure built just like the pressure in a bottle of good Champagne.

Thank you goodreads giveaway and Rebecca Rohman for the opportunity to read Uncorked. At first I didn't think I was going to like it, however once the plot thickened a little, I enjoyed it. It had enough suspense that I wanted to see how it ended. Was a quick read once I got into the story line.

I gave this book 5 stalking stars ;)

This is Chella and Mitch's story.

From the outside Chella looks like she has it all. A strong life, a great job, wonderful friends. The only thing that her friends seem to think that she is missing is a man. But Chella is not interested in a man. She has had problems for the last ten years from her ex. A man that has not left her alone but has stalked her for years and made her life miserable and the only th

Uncorked took my emotions for a ride. One minute I’m happy, next I’m so angry I almost through my kindle across the room, but then I would be sad where I felt like bawling my eyes out. There were also times I looked around to make sure no one could read it while I blushed like a school girl.

Rebecca Rohman’s writing makes you feel what they feel, and I think she did real well mixing all those emotions together to make a great story.

Well... I think I've found a new favourite author. And genre. The synopsis states that Uncorked is "a contemporary romance with elements of suspense". The suspense is definitely there, and so is the romance. There never seemed to be a dull moment in Uncorked. There was always something happening and I was constantly trying to predict what was going to happen next. The story had a great pace and there didn't seem to be any "down time" moments.

Wow! This book will devour you! This is not just your ordinary romance story. It has suspense, twists and turns and keeps you one the edge of your seat! You feel emotionally connected to the main characters. The story is written very well! I love reading a book that makes you feel every emotion and this book delivered!

The book is about a woman named Chella Noon who keeps to herself, doesn't go out much, works 24/7 and only has a hand full of friends. Her reason in doing so is she hides from her

In Uncorked,Chella Noon is set up by her friends with Mitch Mariani. The two as a couple have some great chemistry but their relationship is challenged by a psycho ex from Chella's past. She has lived a shell of a life, constantly moving and finding it hard to set up roots due to the threat her ex has posed. Her chemistry and feelings for Mitch are causing her to rethink her life of solitude.

Mitch, company owner, hot guy, appears to be perfect for Chella. He wants to be Chella's protector and th

I've long been a fan of Rebecca's and have loved every other book she's written. I had never read her very first book though, until now.

It's nothing short of what I have come to expect from her. A beautiful story with romance and suspense; tons of plot twists and lots of steam!

Mitch is such a fantastic character, you find yourself falling a little bit in love with him yourself. He's charming, polite and tenacious, which serves him well up against the very stubborn Chella.

I loved this book. While I was reading it there were many moments where I felt that I could relate to Chella and Mitch.

There were many situations where I was reading and would have a "What" feeling, there was so much that would happen that I didn't see coming. There were many turns that kept me guessing and kept me hooked so that I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. It kept me going to try and figure out w

This is the second book I have read by Rebecca Rohman and I understand this was the first book she wrote, the story is very well written and I made a deep connection with Chella & Mitch throughout the whole story.

I really enjoyed this book from start to finish, the story takes you on a wild journey of twists, betrayal, love and contains lots of emotional drama.

The story contains some very sensitive issues, from serious staking matters to miscarriage, Rebecca has written

This is Rebecca Rohman's first book ... I, of course, read this one third
... it's a stand alone book so don't worry if you haven't read it or you didn't read it first!

while I could tell it was her first book, that in NO WAY diminished the wow factor of this book.

I think this book was a great break-out novel for Rebecca. It was well written the characters were likable, and well developed just as the story was, great sex between the main characters and a lot of angst and build up of suspense as the book continues on.
Do not miss this read, you will be sorry. I am not really good at reviews, but I like this book and wanted to encourage people not to miss out on a good first novel!!!
I see a great future for this writer and will continue to buy her books!

Suspense, steamy romance, sexy male, what more can you ask for. Another exciting and steamy story by one of my favourite authors. Chella and Mitch are set up by their friends. Chella had a harrowing 10 years and tries to keep her distance but Mitch won't be put off. Lots of disasters and accidents throughout the story. Mitch is the "red hot lover". Loved the story, page turner from start to finish.

WOW, what a great read. I was pulled in from the first page to the last.
Loved both Chella and Mitch's characters and Rebecca's writing style. This book takes you on a rollercoaster ride full of twists and turns that you don't expect, it's captivating reading.
There is everything you can wish for in a book, love hot sex, intrigue, lies and deception even a stalker.

I loved Uncorked by Rebecca Rohman. The story has the just the right amount of romance and suspense. Chella and Mitch have a great story to tell and keep the reader enthralled while they tell it. I didn't want to put the book down. Not only will you love the story, but you will fall in love with the characters.

Very enjoyable read. There is a lot of suspense and drama. You will be thinking what could happen next!? Those poor characters :) Mitch, Chella, and all of the other characters are well developed and likable.

My only issue is that is just doesn't seem as fast paced as I would like.

Definitely worth checking out.

I've been a big Rebecca Rohman fan since one of my reading groups read Love, Lives and The D.A. a few years ago. And in that time I have read every other book this author has published, except Uncorked. Not sure why it took me this long to go back and read her debut but I am glad I finally did.

I loved that the intensity was there from page one and didn't let up until the very end. I love me a good romantic suspense story- and while we knew who was responsible for most of it, trying to figure out

I’m not entirely sure why it has taken me so long to read Uncorked. I blame life. Life always tends to get in the way of good reading. And this is most definitely good reading!

Uncorked has all the elements we have come to expect from a Rebecca Rohman novel: suspense, romance, strong females and alpha males. I think Chella is perhaps my favourite female character. And Mitch. Well, I’d love to be set up on a blind date with him ;) Mitch is persistent and determined. No matter how hard Chella tries
