Release by Beth Kery

Beth Kery
Berkley Sensation
April 2013 (Re-Release)

Beth Kery takes readers on a sensual, suspenseful journey in the erotic novel, RELEASE.  Upon the fiery destruction of her home, Genny makes use of a penthouse apartment she co-owns with her deceased husband’s former business partner, but arriving at the apartment forces her to face memories she’s tried to ignore for three years.  Sean has waited a long time for the opportunity to not only speak to Genny again about the forbidden night he shared with her and her husband, but also to make amends for not being able to comfort her following Max’s death.  Haunted by the horrible and delicious memories of her interlude with Sean, Genny is horrified when she discovers that she and Sean are snowed in together because of the weather – there is no way she won’t be able to resist the pull of the past and her attraction towards Sean.  At first, it seems as though the fire at Genny’s home was a tragic accident, but when a quick series of additional incidents take place, Sean recognizes that someone is out to get something from Genny, but whatever it is, she is in grave danger.

Scorching hot, RELEASE has a little bit of everything – suspense, romance, kink, and sexy characters that keep you hooked and reading late into the night.  Genny and Sean are R-E-D-H-O-T, and because RELEASE is written in a combination of flashbacks and current events, Genny’s deceased husband has a more active role than one would typically expect of such a character.  The plot was atypical of a suspenseful erotic novel, and the final outcome is unexpected.  I really found RELEASE to be an original and engaging novel, and while this is my first Beth Kery novel, it won’t be my last!
