    THRUST

    I really enjoyed this book. Loved Alex. He was hot and very sexy. Totally loved his dominate ways and the way he took what he wanted even if it changed his future plan. Will definitely read more from this author.

    Wonderful - could not put it down!

    Thrust by Sybil Bartel Hot, Wild, Wicked and Wonderful…did I mention HOT? This was a book that I could not put down once I started reading it. As I read a few of the characters sounded familiar so I checked and found that I had read about them in the Uncompromising Series and wondered if this was another in the series or just a sidebar novel that needed to be told…whatever it is…it enthralled me. And, I can hardly wait to read whatever Sybil Bartel writes next. Many romance novels that I have recently read have dealt with men who come home from war and their ability or inability to deal with what they have experienced. In this book the main character, Alex Vega, came up with his own way of taking control – he became a male escort – providing services for money. He had a five year plan and was doing well for himself until he met Olivia Toussaint. Yes, she turned his world upside down and made him rethink his life, his plans and a whole lot more. And Alex managed to shake Olivia’s life up, too. Alex may seem cold and clinical in some ways but underneath it all he does seem to care about some of his clients and look out for them so when Olivia appears on the scene it is not totally surprising that he acts, reacts to, shares with and cares for her as he does. Olivia is a strong woman who thinks she knows who and what she needs but Alex makes her reassess and then make decisions that will have a huge impact on her and her plans. There is a lot that happens in this book – in and out of the bedroom. This is a love story that was deeper than I expected it to be and one that I gladly recommend to others – unless they don’t like mature reading of an erotic nature. It made me think and feel and care and then want in more ways than one. Great characters, great story – just great! Thank you to the author who through NetGalley gave me a copy of this splendid book to read. This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    A determined love

    This is the first book that I've read by Sybil Bartel. I definitely was not disappointed. From the very first page I couldn't put it down. Alex was a true Alpha male with a side of serious ego to boot. Olivia was a headstrong innocent beauty with confidence showing on the outside but doubt riding through her insides. They were the perfect match for each other from the beginning, even with Olivia fighting the pull. I loved their battle of wits and Alex's determination to not give up no matter what his head, and other outside factors, kept saying. I loved the secondary character's that were thrown into the book. But I have to say I was a little off put with Jesse. I mean, seriously, if he really cared about Olivia he would have helped her with her demons instead of waiting 2 years and constantly walking away. I was thrilled when Olivia finally realized where her heart truly belonged. I would love to read more about these two and really see their HEA. I definitely am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series when they come out, especially Dane's story.

    Great read

    Loved this book. The chemistry between the H/h was sizzling hot. The banter was witty and the Sex was hot and steamy. Would highly recommend.

    HOT!!

    This is my first book by this author but it definitely won't be my last. The writing style drew me in from the beginning and I couldn't stop reading until the story was done. Alex is a high-end male escort. He loves his job and has no desire to change his employment in the near future. Usually, his dates are bedroom only but when a client has an offer he can't refuse, he agrees to a date at an art auction. It's on this date that he finds Olivia. The attraction to her is immediate but since Alex doesn't date outside of work, he thinks he can turn her into a client. Olivia has no interest in cougar-magnate Alex. She just wants her auction to be successful so she can launch her non-profit, service dog training for veterans. When Alex's drama ruins her auction, he does everything he can to right the wrong. When Olivia finds out what Alex does for a living, is she going to be able to forgive and forget or will it be more than she can handle? I was drawn to this book by the description and I loved it! Neither Alex nor Olivia are pushovers so this lead to some pretty explosive chemistry between them. I thought the ending wrapped up pretty quickly and I was left with some questions about other characters. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author! *This is my voluntary review of an Advanced Reader Copy*
