I had almost forgotten how much I not only have loved this series, but Zoey Derrick’s writing. When Defining Us showed up on my kindle I jumped up and down like a little kid. Why? Because I knew that I would be in for one hot, sexy, panty wetting, emotion draining, angsty read that this series is all about. Let’s just add into the fact the M/M hotness that always takes it up another level in sexiness. Defining Us doesn’t disappoint on any of those things. I think I have said with each book that the last was my favorite but I can say without even a tiny bit of doubt that Defining Us blew the rest of the books away.
I don’t want to give any spoilers away because while I really hope you have read this series from the beginning and if not make sure you have pick these books up; but I want you to be taken away with Calvin and Eric’s story. Let me just state that you don’t have to read the previous books, but I loved this series a lot so I just want you all to read them. They are emotional, extremely sexy and books that literally suck you in from the very first words to the very last. Defining Us will have you crying your heart out for Calvin’s past, I’m serious here, have the tissues and wine readily available because you will need it. Eric, in my opinion was the only perfect match that Zoey Derrick could have given Calvin. Trust me; you will feel the same way once you read it.
Zoey Derrick has once again written an emotion filled book that will stay with you even after you have finished it. I love her writing style and look forward to more from her in the future.
It is from Glendale, Arizona that Zoey Derrick, a mortgage underwriter by day and romance and erotica novelist by night, writes stories as hot as the desert sun itself. It is this passion that drips off of her work, bringing excitement to anyone who enjoys a good and sensual love story.
Not only does she aim to take her readers on an erotic dance that lasts the night, it allows her to empty her mind of stories we all wish were true.
Her stories are hopeful yet true to life, skillfully avoiding melodrama and the unrealistic, bringing her gripping Erotica only closer to the heart of those that dare dipping into it.
The intimacy of her fantasies that she shares with her readers is thrilling and encouraging, climactic yet full of suspense. She is a loving mistress, up for anything, of which any reader is doomed to return to again and again.
