There was no need to speak. Magic hung in the air and we were forever bound by its spell.

Spellbinding. There's a good word—a word that describes Satisfaction to a T.

It's pretty simple, really. I read this book. I loved this book. I wanted more of this book. I want more of this series. I want more classy kink, more anonymous trysts, more chance to indulge in something that feels a little forbidden—and does it while being sexy, fun and touching. (Not the dirty touching, y'all.

I really wish I had read the first book of this series because I was totally lost in here, but that is ok because I really enjoyed this book. The characters were very well written and likeable, well except maybe Junior for most of the book. The storyline was well written and a bit different in that the hot male lead is a few years younger that the smart hottie he is after. That was a nice twist. I loved these two characters so much. I loved seeing them fall for each other, and not just in a sexu ...more

Giving Brix the love he deserves

I fell in love with Brix in Indulgence, and thought that he needed to find the woman of his dreams. I'm so happy that he did in this book. Aspen is the world wind that he needed for him to realize and act on what he can bring to a relationship. Some girls love the boy-next-door type, who can be sexy and hot at the same time. I know I do, and Brix is all that and more. I love being in the world of Indulgence again, catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones
The prologue starts off with a scene from book 1 and told by Brix's POV. Love seeing it from the other side. My heart was crushed when I learned it wasn't the continuing story of Addison and Sebastian, but that's ok cause Brix's story was just as good. The Plus is we got to see Addison and Sebastian throughout the book though since Brix not only attends the Indulgence party again this year, but him and Addison are friends.
Brix met the women of his dreams and he doesn't even know her name. Wow,

Another hot, quick read that doesn't disappoint. Satisfaction by Jeanne McDonald is book 2 in Taking Chances series. The prologue retells a pivotal scene from book 1 from another's point of view, Brix the friendly yoga instructor. At first I was disappointed that Addison and Bass were not the lead players in book 2, however I was soon loving Brix and his bombshell. If you have read book 1, which you MUST read before Satisfaction, you will be happy to know that we do get to see how Addison and Ba ...more

Oooh…another visit to Indulgence…this time it’s Brix Johnson’s turn to indulge in the erotic masquerade. Swoon.

Brix has been haunted by an encounter he had with a woman who gave him the best sex he’s ever had—and that’s saying something after he attended the New Year’s Eve party at Indulgence last year. He sees black hair with purple streaks and hopes it’s the woman who got away, but he’s not found her after searching for months.

Planning to avoid the party this year, Brix is coerced into atten

Jeanne's story of Brix has all of my stars today.
Damn, woman.
This guy makes my heart bleed. For real. He has to be the sweetest, dorkiest, most enjoyable to watch, Sex Club attendee I've ever met. How freaking adorable (SORRY BRIX!) is this guy?
I simply loved the mysterious woman plot! He completely drives himself a little batty trying to find the intriguing tattooe'd love of his life kind of girl at his friend's wedding. And I was so smiely when he finally found her... NOT GONNA TELL YOU WHERE!

You MUST read Indulgence first. Otherwise you won't understand the characters, the storyline or the back story between all the characters.

I was so happy to hear Brix's story! He seemed like such a sweetheart and I felt horrible after what happened to him in Indulgence. I won't say what in case we have some people who don't want to read but find out what happens. I'm no enabler!

I was quite surprised with how Brix's story turned out as I was expecting him to wind up with someone else.

Fast paced, hot and sexy followup to Indulgence.

Brix and his Bombshell fire up the pages in this story about intense, soul shaking connections and learning to let go of inhibitions. The series is called "Taking Chances" for a reason. Brix takes a chance with a nameless woman, turning over his pleasure and his heart to her. In the end, the payoff is great.

An unconventional story, told from a mans POV, with a HEA that suits the characters and wraps up the story in a beautiful, red satin bow.

Wow! I loved this book! I've been looking forward to this book once I heard that Jeanne McDonald was going to write another book after Indulgence. Hot and steamy is what this book definitely is; well-written and quick moving this story moves along at a fast pace.

Brix Johnson is just everything (sigh) ... He is handsome and caring. The chemistry he has with Aspen is everything I could hope for in real life. I look forward to what Author Jeanne McDonald publishes next.

OMG! This book was so hot and steamy. I so need to read Indulgence (Book1)
after reading this. Loved these characters and really enjoyed Brix's story.

Brix meets a mystery lady at a party, only to have her vanish without a trace.

When he's invited to Indulgence, he excepts thinking it will help get her out of his mind. Only to find her again when he least expects it..

After reading Indulgence I knew I had to read Satisfaction. I highly recommend reading Indulgence first but it is not necessary.
Brix Johnson is a yoga instructor and loves his job. He also has a crush on Addison George a client of his yoga class. After visiting Indulgence last New Years Eve and seeing Addison there he was excited to say the least. He let her go then and now he is back to see what happens this year. What he didn't expect to find was the woman of his desires and then one he can't

OK I thought the first book was hot but this one takes hotness to a whole new level. Where Indulgence was the beginning of Addison's story it is merely the highlight for Brix. After dealing with the aftermath of directing Addison to follow her heart with Sebastian, Brix finds himself in a quandary. This is Brix's story of how his life was impacted and the waves of craziness, betrayal, lies, love and friendship that followed from that one night. Lots happens in the year following and when he gets ...more

I volunteered to read an ARC to post a review for United Indie Book Blog - This was an excellent read with great flow and character development. This is the second book the A Taking Chances Series. It is a stand-a-lone book but obviously has overlapping of characters and circumstances from Book 1 Indulgence. This book is about Brix Johnson, handsome and nice guy yoga instructor and Aspen Church, sex blogger, reporter. They had a sexual connection in Book 1 that had a lasting impression for Brix. ...more

Welcome back to Indulgence!! This time we get to experience it through Brix's eyes. Brix is reserved, quiet and struggles with getting women to notice him despite his hotness. Although, he was let down by Addison the year before, he has been convinced to come back after a hot experience at Addison's wedding with an unknown woman.

Indulgence gives Brix the confidence to be himself and do what he wants and step outside his comfort zone. One woman attracts his attention at the party...his mystery w

Hot. Steamy. But with a difference. A shyer, not-quit-as-sure-of-himself lead, that endears himself to the reader. Lots of Indulgence references, so it does help to read the first book before tackling this one. Love revisiting some of the other characters, but so glad Brix got his own book, and his own HEA. Jeanne has some major hot scenes in this book, and she handles them with a deft hand. Fast paced, and enjoyable.
Great read.

Brix is the sweet intellectual man that doesn't know how hot he is. He's not confident with women like he should be. One night of the hottest sex of his life with an anonymous woman ruins him. He spent months looking for her. He finally went back to Indulgence he finally finds her only for it to be ruined again. Get ready to meet the man every girl dreams of. ...more

I absolutely love Brix!!! First, my favorite type of POV is the male POV which this story is completely told from Brix's side. He is shy and insecure about who he is which I kind of found refreshing. He wants to be someone else and where else can he do that but at Indulgence and boy does he. His experience is filled with dominance and some surprises. He meets a dominate bombshell at a wedding that literally rocks his world and is searching for her and when he finds her again wow to say

This was a new author to me and although not a particularly long read I enjoyed it. I was intrigued when I read the premise of the story.
Brix has always had trouble communicating and talking to women as he is reserved, almost nerdy and somewhat shy. In fact he has secretly been crushing on one of his yoga students, Addison George.

We are back at Indulgence!! This book is hot, steamy and totally addictive!

This book is a standalone, but I would HIGHLY recommend you read book 1 first, as there is a fair bit of overlap, and to fully appreciate Brix's story and understand all of the characters involvement, it would be beneficial to read 'Indulgence' beforehand.

Having read the first book and I was super pleased that Brix was getting his own book. He really deserved it and Jeanne did not let us down with this story for him. Bri

Brix Johnson is that perfect guy to bring home to your parents. He's a good guy who's a wealthy yoga instructor, but for whatever reason, he's over looked by the woman he believes he wants. So he becomes her friend, and while at another friend's wedding, he meets a mysterious woman, with who he has the best night of sex with, and after it's over, she won't tell him her name, then disappears. He can't seem to get that woman out of his mind, and yet, he can't find her either. He gets another invit ...more

Brix Johnson is a man that hasn't always had luck with the ladies. Last New Year's Eve he came close to getting the girl of his dreams, but alas her heart already belonged to another. It was a kick in the gut, but he's manning up and moving on.

What he least expected was a chance encounter at his friend's wedding. This spunky, take charge spitfire turns his world upside down.... but in a good way. But after a tantalizing affair, she runs away without leaving her name or number to contact her.

Brix Johnson needs a boost in the self-confidence department. The sad part is that he feels he has to create a persona in order for that to happen. He constantly suffers because he puts himself in the same space as a woman he lusts after. It’s nice to see he has a friend in Autumn and that she wants to see him happy. He wants her to be happy as well. You expect all males to be self-assured alphas but Brix reminds the reader that that’s not always the case.

Satisfaction is the second book in the Taking Chances series by Jeanne McDonald and from the way it read out, I will definitely be going back for the first book.
When I read the blurb I was pretty much instantly hooked, a shy, somewhat introverted man who has some really hot sexy times with a woman at a wedding who wont even tell him her name then leaves him... - normally my tastes run a little to the opposite end of the spectrum.
