Today I will be reviewing Tawny Weber’s May 2009 Harlequin Blaze release, which I got an ARC of, Going Down Hard. I was lucky enough to have Tawny get in touch with me for an author interview, author guest blog and two book reviews for her April 2009 and May 2009 Harlequin Blaze releases. The first guest blog for her April 2009 release, Coming on Strong, was posted in March and the second guest blog for her May 2009 release, Going Down Hard, was posted at the end of April. I have had the pleasure and honor of interviewing Tawny Weber here on my blog and she answered all the reader comments. I also posted my review for Coming on Strong for you to read because it is the first part and ends with the story in Going Down Hard, which I’m reviewing today. In the first book Coming on Strong we met Sierra and Reece but we didn’t get to know them only got glimpses of their hot attraction to entice us into waiting for their own love story.
So in Going Down Hard, Sierra Donovan is flying high on her company’s rising success with her partner and best friend Belle. Her bonus for all of her success is…another sexy one-night-stand with cowboy Reece Carter–also known as the best sex she’s ever had. But when sick blackmail photos start to show up, (we got a little inside peek in the previous novel) fiercely self-reliant Sierra suddenly finds herself needing a 24-hour bodyguard. Now who better than cowboy turned security specialist Reece Carter to protect her because though Reece is tall, dark and dangerous…and he’s getting in Sierra’s take-charge way she knows he can keep her safe. But, oh god, can he make every single nerve ending on her body sizzle and Sierra soon realizes that coming home to great sex each night has its benefits. That is, as long as her bodyguard can keep her alive long enough to enjoy it which I think you may know that from his characteristics he would give his own life for hers if necessary.

Well it has taken me a while to get this novel read and reviewed because life got it the way for me but I have finally finished it. I have to say it wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be like when I first read about it. I had a bit of trouble getting into it at first but after midway through the book I was excited to finally find out how things would end for Sierra and Reece. Sierra is a strong and independent woman who has a tough time getting close to the opposite sex especially Reece since she has a very strong sexual attraction that she doesn’t want. Reece is a cowboy with military and security background that has not had any luck with the ladies since his horrible marriage to a woman who he thought he loved. Together they may seem like total opposites but that is just on the surface because deep down they are perfect for one another if they would only give themselves the chance to finally figure that out. I give this book 3 Open Books:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
