When enigmatic billionaire Ian Noble sets Lin the task of “taming” his brilliant yet half-savage brother Kam Reardon, she eagerly accepts. She’s more than curious about the solitary g

Wow, dare I say it....too much sex? Don't get me wrong, the scenes are intense and hot but after a while I was looking for more talking and plot and less bed dancing. Full review to come on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews

Oh Beth Kery, where have you and your books been all this time?! How have I not known the hot naughtiness of your stories?! I’m surprised this book, Since I Saw You, isn't smoking from all the hotness it contains. This is one of the steamiest and sexiest books I’ve read in a quite a while. I was blown away by the level of eroticism of the story which just grabbed hold of me from the beginning and kept its alluring hold on me for the whole ride.

This book was so well written. Kery did a beautiful

Quick & Dirty: A woman whose life revolves around work meets a man determined to get her to let go of her control in this fabulous erotic love story by Beth Kery.

Opening Sentence: Lin Soong hurried down the sidewalk, her face coated in a thin layer of perspiration overlaid with an autumn mist.

Lin prides herself on being a fantastic executive assistant to Ian Noble. The fact that she’s also in love with him only makes her want to do an even bette

This review may contain spoilers for previous books in the Because You Are Mine series. You can read this book as a standalone, but I believe you’ll enjoy it more if you’ve read the other books first.

When I found out there would be one more book in Beth Kery’s Because You Are Mine series, I wondered if it could live up to the others, especially now that Ian and Francesca had finally gotten their

Original Post:

My first impression of Since I Saw You honestly came from the cover and the promising premise. I have never read Beth Kery previously, so I jumped into this book blindly unsure what to expect. I love trying new things and I am not afraid of it, so why not? What I got in return was a very pleasant surprise.

Thought this book is part of a series, it was said it can be read as a stand-alone. It did, to an extent, but at the same time the back st

This book had a very slow start and a minimal plot, but lots of sizzling sex scenes.
Lin Soong has been in love with her boss, Ian Noble for years, knowing he doesn’t return the feeling. She has thrown all her passion into her work as an executive for Noble Enterprises, working all the time. That changes when Ian asks her to smooth the way for his genius brother, Kam, who has invented a biomet

Since I Saw You will be out on all book retail sites tomorrow but I was fortunate enough to get an early copy to review. Since the book is not out till tomorrow I will keep this review as spoiler-free as possible. Some of you may already know, in this week’s episode of the podcast we discussed at length the things that make a Beth Kery book so appealing in our review of her first published erotic romance, Wicked Burn which was released back in 2008.

It was nice. But I would be lying if I told you there was much of a story outside of Cam expressing his feelings on her body and the way she moves.

I do love the ending where he is finally able to steal her from Ian. It makes for an interesting addition to their love story.
The only twist in this book is that they both made assumptions on the reasons why they came together and according top me Cam's assumption was mostly accurate.

It was rather hard reading Lin and understanding her feelings toward

I think this is my favorite book from the series. I thought I was invested in Ian, Francesca, Lucien, and Elise's stories, but that was nothing compared to how I felt about Lin and Kam's story. The story was so enchanting to me. The only time I put it down was when I had to start work for the day. Lin was the perfect choice for Kam. I know it's just a book, but Kam's love for Lin is what dreams are made of. Hopefully I can find my "Kam" in real life, lol. A must read!

So I knew I wouldn't be able to put tuis down till the end and I was right. It was really good. Very Erotic but with a good story. A great ending to a great series. I love the way she incorporates the previous characters in each book. If you haven't read because you are mine you have to start there first this is book four in the series. This is definitely a series i would recommend. Since i saw you is to be released in may so start reading.

I read Beth Kery novels very, very slowly. I like to savor them. Her ability to keep the plot interesting along with deep POV is enviable. For a reader, it's just wonderful. I love to get lost in romances, and Ms. Kery builds such wonderful worlds and journeys allowing just that. She never disappoints and Since I Saw You proves that point - again.

Hm. So I first read this in 2014 and I LOVED IT.
I re-read it [again in the wee hours] ... so I really liked it but didn't L O V E as much? Maybe?

But ... it's still one of my favorite Beth Kery books. [Somehow I didn't think it was as hot this read? Or maybe it was the whole 4 AM half dead/tired/not tracking...]

I love Lin and Kam. Love them. They're SO PERFECT for each other.

And I also - like there are still BDSM elements which I think was "a thing" in this series - but it's not hardcore, and THA

I enjoyed reading about Kam and Lin. It was so great getting to know more about Kam now that he was willing to get to know his brothers more which meant spending time in Chicago. We learned about his past with Gaines, it was tough hearing what he endured, we got to see a whole different side to him now that he was no longer a recluse. I have to admit I was shocked to learn how Lin felt about Ian for all of these years. I loved how Lin began to change the more time she spent with Kam, he made her ...more

This is absolute trash. I had an acquaintance recommend it to me, but it is poorly written and about nothing but sex. And not just normal, emotional, beautiful sex either- this is just porn. The man only thinks about how the woman is making him feel- and uses her as an object rather than a woman- and she? Well the true tragedy is that she LIKES it. She likes being seen and treated as a sex object. Gross. I am not on board.

Enjoyed it. Liked the story very much.

I plowed through quite a few books and just kept adding the titles to my Goodreads list. Should've realized I'd be doing crap reviews on them.

I do remember really liking the storyline. Yes, it's smut, but not just a "slam-bam-thank you m'am". Don't get me wrong, I thought it was hot... the bonus was that I got to enjoy a good story too.

ABOUT THE BOOK: May 6, 2014

When enigmatic billionaire Ian Noble sets Lin the task of “taming” his brilliant yet half-savage brother Kam Reardon, she eagerly accepts. She’s more than curious about the solitary genius and everything she’s heard about him. During their electric first meeting, her fascination increases a hundredfold. Kam practically oozes raw sex appeal. Lin is interested...very interested. But does her intense attraction and willingness to go places with him she’s never gone before

Since I Saw You is one of those books where you kind of love the male lead and practically despise the female lead. She's just awful and thinks highly of herself and he is genuinely a nice guy even with his issues. This book's big downfall was the fact that it was rather confusing and lacked tons of key details. The were two main details that especially bothered me. One of the details that kept getting me every time was the fact that the female lead was supposed to be Chinese. And yet the author ...more

This a novelette that tells the story of the growing relationship between Ian’s personal assistant Lin Soong and Ian’s half-brother Kam Reardon. It alternates between Lin’s POV and Kam’s.

I like Kam and am glad he got a story, even if it is short. Definitely should have been a longer book. After all Kam is as much a part of the family as Ian and Lucian (sure has the same ‘appetites’ as them) and he deserves as much space, or at least more than he got.

One thing for sure is Beth Kery knows how to write Erotica. This is the 4th installment in the Because you are mine series.

Ever doting Lin wants to help Ian by helping Kam adjust to being in the USA. What she didn't expect is for him to look like he

I received a copy thanks to Penguin at an event, for an honest review.

This was a great sexy read, from two POV's! Some of the steamiest, spiciest, hottest scenes I have read. I have read quite a few erotic romance books and this one definitely was one of the best ones I have read. Kam was straight forward, intriguing and sexy. The chemistry between this couple was off the charts!
