You and I, Alone (You and I, #1) written by Melissa Toppen (321 pgs) – finished reading 2/10/15 – 5 stars - Contemporary Romance

2/10/15 - Fantastic! Two strong and passionate main characters who were afraid of commitment, but seemed to find something so powerful and endearing in each other. So looking forward to continuing their story in the next installment to this trilogy...

3/4/15 – This one gets off the blocks running and it doesn’t let up with the drama, intrigue, and intimacy until the final page is turned. Two people so in control of their lives while both are dealing with ramifications in the past with career ending injuries. Bentley is rich, gorgeous, and smart. He’s the owner of several exclusive nightclubs that cater to the rich and famous. Anna/Logan is an exotic dancer in one of his nightclubs that is also a hard-working college student. She’s basically always done her own thing. When these two meet, however, their chemistry and attraction is off-the-charts. Can two strong and confident individuals let down their guard enough to let another see them for who they really are? Bentley, though, wants Logan any way he can have her. He’s not willing to stand by and let someone else come between them. He wines and dines her with meaningful gifts in order to show her that he’s more than capable of making her happy.

Wow! Both Logan and Bentley (not too crazy about a gorgeous guy with a name like that, though) were amazing! When they are together intimately it’s scorching and just plain HOT!!! Way to write those sex scenes Ms. Toppen!!! They were just so erotically charged with heat and intensity!  As their relationship deepens, however, Logan does seem to let Bentley in more and more each time they are together. The book does end in a cliffhanger, and it’s a shame that I have to wait until April to see how their relationship evolves some more. It’s such a great story, though, I’m willing to wait it out. Ms. Toppen pulls the reader into the story with two explosive characters and their seductive lives. Both Logan and Bentley were totally likable as they learn how much that they are willing to sacrifice to find love. I’m sure that there will be much more drama, and I’m hoping that there are some juicy secrets as well, when the other two parts of this trilogy are released. I had no idea what I was going to encounter within this book because I had never read a Melissa Toppen book before, but I was definitely entertained and enjoyed every word of it. This is one thrilling read!

Oh, and if you get a chance, check out the Book Trailer on’s pretty cool!!!!
