Review: Rising by Lexxi James. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rising by Lexxi James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A new Dom rises from the ashes.

I thought I wanted a normal life.

Between my money and resources,

it should’ve been easy.

But there was one problem.

There’s a woman I’ve watched for years.

The woman who saved my life.

People know her as Kathryn Chase.

I call her Kitten.

The only thing my good girl wanted?

To submit.

Wish granted.

But it’s time my good girl learns

What it takes

To play bad.

Rising is a steamy romantic suspense that continues the story of Jake and Kathryn. 


Hot! Hot! Hot!

The heroine: Kathryn Chase – formerly an army nurse, she now works as an insurance investigator. She is newly engaged to Jake Russo and has worked with him on some of her investigations.

The Hero(es): Jake Russo – he is a cyber crime expert and master hacker. He is also extremely wealthy and was in the Army during the gulf war. Kathryn saved him at the time and he has been watching over her since he got back.

The story:When Kathryn wanted to learn more about BDSM, her good friend Paco Robles introduced her to Jake. He has been her Dom ever since, though they have been moving slowly and have yet to go to a BDSM club together. When Kathryn finds out that Jake has been visiting some local clubs without her, she is determined to figure out why.

I liked this story and the fact that it delved deeper into the BDSM lifestyle and world. It was much steamier than the first book, though that was pretty steamy as well. I like the relationship between Kat and Jake and especially how they end up working together in so many things.

The supporting characters were awesome, especially Paco and Julian. They are both gay men that are hot and sexy as well. Paco is mysterious as ever and Julian is always good for a laugh. There is suspense as well and danger. I won’t go into the plot but to say that I really liked it.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
