New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part III When You Tease Me Out-of-control party girl Elise Martin’s playground was all of Europe—until she came to Chicago to channel her innate creativity and sensual nature into something totally different, yet just as delicious. But she never dreamed that becoming chef at the sleek restaurant Fusion would lead her back into the territory of her girlhood crush—the irresistible enigma called Lucien, He says he’s going to take her under his hand and he’s even moved her into his luxurious penthouse, where she’s agreed to submit to his rules. It’s a prospect that both intimidates and excites Elise. One thing is for certain: while she may have had the power to put every other man in her life in her hip pocket, she can’t control Lucien. Gorgeous businessman Lucien Savauge, adopted son of an infamous French billionaire, knows how to treat bad girls, but Elise is a temptation that would try even the most disciplined of men. He can’t walk away from her—he won’t—but kindling their potentially explosive relationship is risky. She knows too much about his intentions with Ian Noble, even if she’s unaware of just how explosive her knowledge is. And as Elise is quickly learning, if she’s going to play with fire, she’s going to have to play by Lucien’s rules. Includes a bonus excerpt of Beth Kery’s Addicted to You More to come. Don't miss When I’m With You, Part IV, available 3/26
After Elise gets a taste of what it’s like to be under Lucien’s control and things don’t go as she plans, she runs. Straight into danger. Then Lucien shows her the pleasure she can have at his hand.
Elise is facing a new relationship, one that makes her feel things she doesn’t understand, a new job and new friends. She lives in a dump, doesn’t have much money, and her neighbor wants something she’s not willing to give. She’s trying desperately to retain her dignity while accepting Lucien’s terms and her own feelings. There is an interesting dichotomy between the two men who want Elise in When You Tease Me. While they have very different intentions, they both want to control her. I think Elise is desperate for Lucien to want her the way she wants him. When she is finally on her knees for him, she gets more than she bargains for, and my heart broke a little for her then. When You Tease Me answers some questions and raises others. Part four can’t come soon enough.
