I finished this story at 12.30am and I have a seriously dopey smile on my face. You know when you finish a book and you're just really happy. That's me right now.

These authors gave me the kind of story I love - packed with witty dialogue, explosive chemistry, actions that had me pondering what I would do in their situation and supporting characters that made it a really rich read. Everything felt real and the angst was genuinely emotional, never felt gratuitous. My heart was pounding in parts &

This was one heck of a forbidden romance!! It gave me all the feels! It was beautifully written and kept me on the edge of my seat!! It was so awesome that I read it in one sitting!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own

This one goes on my list of the best written stories I've read this year. I absolutely love the casual, witty, snarky internal dialogue the characters have with themselves. This is no romcom tho - there's a seriousness to it with just a touch of something darker.

Here's the thing... One of my favorite movies ever is Something Borrowed. Ever watch it? Its super good. Anyway, that movie and this story have something in common: boyfriend of narcisist gf and her bff have an affair. Initially, they ar

I did enjoy this book, at times it was certainly entertaining and I thought it was well written. The subject is one of my favourite genres, love triangles and cheating.

Sterling and Rachel are a couple of sorts, both come from powerful rich families and it was just assumed they would get together and eventually marry; two powerful family names joined, a match made in heaven. That is until Perrie makes an appearance, she is Rachel's childhood friend and she is about to throw a spanner in the work

This was a great read by Kimberly and Dominique. I really loved the tension and banter between Perrie and Sterling. HOT HOT HOT! Their chemistry jumped off the pages and I felt every gaze, touch and heated glance they shared with one another.

Perrie is a force to be reckoned with and she makes no excuses for going after what she wants. She is comfortable in her own skin and the confidence she exudes immediately draws you in. Sterling can be, how shall we say it, a douchecanoe! Howev

5 STARS FOR DON'T LET ME BE YOURS!! This book was everything I look for in the perfect read. It was filled with sexiness, chemistry, great bantering, angst and fabulous characters. I absolutely loved Sterling, he was PERFECTION. Sterling and Perrie's story had lots of OMG moments and will push all your emotion buttons. These two authors did an amazing job with this book, make sure to one click this one. I am hoping we will see more stories with some of the other characters from this book. ...more

Perrie didn’t mean to fall for the handsome stranger at the bar, but she was feeling great after a few drinks and he was on her radar. When she propositioned him, the twinkle in his blue eyes looked familiar, but she couldn’t place him. Then he uttered a name she was trying to forget, “Rachel”, and she knew who he was; Sterling Montgomery, her best friend Rachel’s boyfriend. He immediately told her they had broken up, but that didn’t matter. She would never hook up with her friends ex-boyfriend, ...more

My heart is still fluttering!!! Sterling and Perrie are freaking hot and awesome!!! I was waiting forever for this book (at least it FELT like forever to me) and I was so NOT disappointed. I was left totally breathless on more than one occasion! Blake is the next friends every girl should have. Rachel is the girl you love to hate and hope for get painful demise! Cooper is just as laid back as Sterling is wound up. The supporting characters are fantastic. I loved everything about t

Sterling and Perrie are an awesome couple that you were routing for throughout the whole book!

Aahhhhhh!!!!! I loved this book! I had such a smile on my face reading about Perrie and Sterling. Their interactions were comical yet so, so steamy.
These two characters had so much chemistry fuming out of the pages. I had such a hard time putting this book down, and once I realized it was starting to end, I wanted to stop. Adored everything about it.
Dominique Laura and Kimberly Reese need to write more books together!! It had the perfect amount of drama, angst, steam, love, and let’s not forget

The story was a steady pace and they plot held my interest. I have read previous books by both authors so I knew I would enjoy the book . I felt the book was tastefully written with the topic the book potrays. I enjoyed the characters , at times I felt Sterling was a jerk towards Perrie . Then there were times I felt she became weak and whiny towards Sterling. Sterling and Pierre were much better suited together than there current partners. The secondary characters , Coop and Blake were great ho ...more

Sterling And Perrie
Their attraction is undeniable and oh so wrong.
Sterling is promised to Perrie's so called best friend Rachael but is living a lie. It is the life that he thinks that his parents want for him. He is smart, confident, sexy and cocky but always finds himself in the web that Rachael weaves. Yes his mostly off again girlfriend .
Perrie is oh so sassy, beautiful, creative and a trail blazer. She is making her way with hard work and determination. She has always had a soft spot for

I received an ARC of this book and was thrilled to check it out. I absolutely adore Kimberly Reese and Dominique Laura is a new author to me. Don't Let Me Be Yours was a sexy little taboo read that I thought was well written. The pace was quick, the banter witty and the sex hot. Esperanza "Perrie" Ayala is the pseudo best friend of Rachel who is the on again/off again girl friend, soon to be wife of Sterling Montgomery. Perrie is a Latina spitfire. Rachel is quite frankly the girl you love hate. ...more

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..I have to say I am surprised I surprised myself when I continued to read this book, let me explain..I hate hate cheating and never condone it, so why did I give this book a chance? Well honestly after reading some reviews I wanted to know, you curiosity..Well I am glad I did, I actually enjoyed it. Sterling was a jerk, no denying it but as you continue to read you see some of his redeeming qualities. Then we have Perrie, I enjoyed her character, normally I would ...more

Don't Let Me Be Yours is the first book that I've read by either of the either of these authors, and I am inspired to read more by these two. Together or alone. I was looking for something a bit lighter then what I got, but I loved it all the same. It was sexy and all consuming and I blazed through this in a matter of a few hours. I just couldn't let the idea of Perrie and Sterling together go but it's certainly a struggle to see them together.

This story is everything you could ever want when i

My Readultery Life Review

Don’t Let Me Be Yours is probably one off may favourite reads this year so far. Having never read any books from either of these author’s, I was a little hesitant to take a chance on this storyline, but these ladies can write!!!! From this story alone, I will be resolving the issue on not reading any off the authors previous works.

This knocked my socks off from the first page till the very last, the chemistry jumped off the pages and I could feel my palms get sweaty as

I fell so in love with this story! I couldn't put it down once I started reading it!
Perrie and Sterling are made for each other. Perrie is hot and feisty and Sterling is the typical alpha male that wants everything his way. Theres only one huge problem...Sterling is with Perrie's best friend Rachel.
There are no words to truly justify how much I loved this book! Perrie and Sterling have a hot hot hot relationship! The sex is off the so hot!! This story has everything. Angst, heartbreak

An phenomenal read from two absolutely amazing authors!  These two ladies have absolutely knocked the story out of park!

The writing was outstanding. I felt that I was actually part of the story in some places... To the point that my emotions were all over the place.  My heart hurt badly for these characters at some points, and they had me smiling at others.

 I absolutely adored Perrie. She was so strong in so many different aspects. Sterling is a strong alpha, but we see his softer side as well.

The love these to vie for is quite an uphill battle. Sterling and Perrie both try to maintain their distance but after finding the truth of Rachel and her lies, both stop at nothing to win each other back.
I loved this love triangle storyline because it can be relatable to real life in that this story can actually happen...
Good Read!!

“Our time together is drenched in scarlet; steeped in secrets, sin, and shame.”

It’s no secret that I’m drawn to the complicated, frowned upon subjects in books. I love the drama that follows characters and the journey–although not pretty–they have to weave through to get to the things they want.

Don’t Let Me Be Yours was a book that captured my attention from the start, which I feel hasn’t happened for me in awhile. This was also my first book by both Kimberly or Dominique, and after finishin

This book had a lot of potential to be great-the plot was intriguing and it was pretty much well written, it was just awfully hard to connect to any of the characters. I felt as though the whole relationship between Perrie and Rachel was juvenile, and in today’s world very unbelievable that they still were involved in each other’s life.
This book has a warning for cheating-but it’s so much more than the cheating that I know people are going to have issues with. For me, the indefinite push and pul

This book was fantastic! I seriously couldn’t put it down! What a read!
I got so excited, only to be dropped so low. It sounded right up my alley, but the writing is incredibly stiff and ruined it for me. IMHO.
