REVIEW: Shut In (Just This Once Part 1) by Cee Smith




Blaire didn’t know much about one-night stands, but she knew how they’re supposed to go. A night where inhibitions are thrown out, no names, no attachments, and in the morning you both go your separate ways, never to speak again. At least that’s what was supposed to happen.

Mother nature had other plans.

She established boundaries: No details, no more sex. But Joel was never much for following the rules. With a body built for sex and an appetite to match, one night with him would never be enough. Torn between the case that could make her legal career and a man who thinks of clothes as optional, how long could she stick to the rules?

My Review

There is a lot of story packed in to the first part of this serial!

Blair liked rules. She lived by rules. She made a career out of following the rules. Then one night she threw them all out the window. That’s when things got interesting.  Enter Joel. The one night stand.

We get a pretty good idea on Blair’s character. Joel on the other hand, we know very little about. But that’s the whole point. These two have off the charts chemistry and even in the most awkward of moments, you can feel the sexual tension between them. This certainly isn’t your typical one night stand story though. Underneath all the hot steamy action is a story full of suspense and questions that beg to be answered. The story is fast paced and the end will floor you. I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds!

Cee Smith is a lover of the written word. Since first learning how to string a sentence together, she’s been putting pen to paper and hasn’t looked back. Though she’s no longer obsessed with blood and gore, the dark side still calls to her, often finding refuge in her current writings. Her addiction to reading is what finally inspired her to take a chance at publishing.

A California native, currently residing in North Carolina with her husband. She loves salacious stories, true love and forbidden romances—the more angst the better. Other than reading and writing, some of her other obsessions are peanut butter (don’t get her started), Michael Fassbender, and watching tv.

She loves talking about the creative process and what books she’s reading, so feel free to shoot her a line. Or if you just want to say hi that’s fine too. She swears she’ll respond.
