4 out of 5

I was so worried that this was going to be the standard “rich playboy meets simpering innocent” storyline. The beginning was a little slow to heat up and there’s some insta-love and a bit of “shining knight syndrome”, but once it heats up and the story gets moving- it is HOT! I really appreciated that I wasn’t dragged along without “secrets” being revealed. Jacob gives you just enough to whet your appetite and then you have to keep reading for more. And I devoured it!

I thoroughly have a crush on Caston. He’s a sweetie, but he’s also a man of power and confidence. Very sexy. Sabrina took longer for me to like, but as her character finds her feet, I grew to like her. She’s a great match for Caston.

Keeping with trends, F.L. Jacob did leave us with a cliffhanger. But it’s not a “How will they ever find their HEA?” kind of cliffhanger.  It’s more of a “oh shit, what now? Leave them alone!” kind of cliffhanger.  Is that TMI? I’m a little ill with cliffhangers, but I don’t want my loathing affecting my feelings on a book as a whole. I really enjoyed this book.

Have I Told You has super super sexy times that would seriously make your mother blush. Not my mother, she’ll love every second of the smut. But the sexy times are plentiful and well written. I strongly recommend this book and I will definitely be reading the sequel. With how well Caston and Sabrina’s story has been told so far, I have high expectations for F.L. Jacob’s future work.

She thinks the only good thing left in her life is her abusive boyfriend. Keeping her boyfriend happy is her number one priority, no matter how impossible.

Meeting by chance one evening, sparks fly between Caston and Sabrina. Neither expected the feelings they bring out in each other. Trying to have a normal relationship in their abnormal world is almost impossible, happiness is a new way of life for the lovers. They want to move forward, but the past won’t let go.

I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full time employee. Life is crazy and my love for reading had fizzled over the years but thanks to a wonderful group of ladies that I met last year I started reading again. Their love for books turned me on to many great writers who I would have never discovered if I hadn’t started reading again!

I started writing for them. They brought out my love for writing that I haven’t seen in years. Starting this process was tedious and nerve wrecking, but my lovely ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.

Quote PicTeaser

Breakfast flew by.  Caston stood up to leave and I felt sad, as if a piece of me was leaving.  Standing in front of him, I straightened his suit coat; feeling very brazen I took his lapels in my hands, pulling him close to me.  He put his hands on my hips, under my shirt.  His thumbs edge their way to touch my skin.  It jumped at his touch.

“Be good today.  I will leave an iPad for you to use.”  He leaned forward and kissed my forehead.  I sighed, and looked up at him timidly through my eyelashes.

“Yes, Caston,” I responded angelically.  My mind was begging him to kiss me.  Please, God, kiss me.

“I could get used to this,” Caston replied, staring into my hazel eyes, while brushing my sides with his thumbs.

He was barely a hair’s breadth away from my mouth now.  He enveloped my mouth, and his tongue parted my lips, hungrily seeking mine.  I allowed him entrance, and my knees buckled.  He caught me, pressing me to his body.  One hand stayed on my back, while the other skimmed up my back and tangled in my hair.  Intertwining his hand in my hair, he pulled my head back, starting to kiss the sides of my mouth down to my neck.  My mind went absolutely blank, and I felt my insides clenching.  Just as suddenly as he started kissing me, he pulled away.  Breathless, I leaned up against the table.  Holy shit!  Did that just happen?

ADD IT TO YOUR TBR: Have I Told You

Excerpt:

I heard Caston return, but I was mesmerized by the night sky.  I was pulled out of my trance when I heard a click, click, click.  I panicked that the paparazzi had found us until I turned over on my stomach and Caston was standing a few feet behind me with a camera in front of him.

I smiled up at him.  “You scared me.”

A few more clicks of me on my stomach with my feet in the air.  He dropped the camera to his waist.  “I’m sorry, you’re too beautiful and this lighting is amazing tonight.”

He knelt down in front of me taking the wine glass from my hands.  Licking his lips he leans in for another kiss.  A pool of liquid drips into my panties.  Leaning further, he kisses that spot on my neck that makes me shiver.  I let out made a soft moan.  “Strip for me,” he whispers in my ear.

My breath hitches.  I sit back on my heels looking at him.  My nipples are pebbled and poking through my thin shirt.  I take my hand and remove my ponytail.  He picks up his camera and starts snapping away, as I shake my hair out.  It falls over my shoulders.  I look up at him with hooded eyes and bite my lip.  More clicking, but I heard a moan come from behind that camera.  I smiled ever so slightly, knowing I was turning him on.
