    Very, very nice read I really enjoyed this one There was nothing particularly unusual about the plot, no sudden twists or turns or nothing overly melodramatic, or no big hidden secret revealed okay, there was a secret revealed, but I doubt readers will be shocked by the secret this was just a beautifully detailed character driven story, and what wonderful characters they were I absolutely fell in love with the hero, the heroine, and their extended families Although this book is part of a Very, very nice read I really enjoyed this one There was nothing particularly unusual about the plot, no sudden twists or turns or nothing overly melodramatic, or no big hidden secret revealed okay, there was a secret revealed, but I doubt readers will be shocked by the secret this was just a beautifully detailed character driven story, and what wonderful characters they were I absolutely fell in love with the hero, the heroine, and their extended families Although this book is part of a series, it s not absolutely necessary to have read the first book Laid Bare , but I suggest you do A couple of the characters from that book have pretty big roles in this one, and you ll also want to get the hero s full backstory from that book In fact, I m so hooked on this book s hero Brody Brown , that I just might have to pick that book up again and reacquaint myself with all his sexy wonderfulness Basically the plot is this Elise is a petite, blonde, beautiful, 30 something divorced star ballerina, until a recent traumatic event derailed her career and nearly her life Afterward, things are so bad in her native New York with her ex s vindictive parents, that she s packed her bags and moved herself and her precocious 7 year old daughter far, far, away, to Seattle, Washington Elise wants to start all over, forget about some horrible times in her past, and raise her young daughter in peace and quiet She s not looking for a man, she s not looking for a relationship, all she wants to do is work hard teaching at her recently opened dance studio, and provide a stable life for her daughter And if there just so happens to be a big, sexy, tattooed, motorcycle riding hottie living right across the street from herwell, he can be a part of her fantasies that s good enough for her.Brody Brown is big, bad, and sexy as all get out, works as a well respected and very successful tattoo artist and has his own shop When he was 18 his parents were killed in a car accident, and he had to put his promising career as an artist on hold so he could get a job and raise his younger brother and sister Brody is an alpha protector, always looking out for his family and taking care of those he loves No sacrifice is too big for this gentle giant who puts his family s welfare first Now that his brother and sister are adults with successful careers and lives of their own, his responsibilities have lessened, and he basically has a life of his own He s got a nice house, enough money, friends and family, and the occasional lover He s not looking for a wife or a relationship, but fate has a way of handing you stuff when you least expect it One day while getting the mail from his street side mailbox, he s sideswiped by a drunk driver, and his across the street neighbor runs over to administer first aid Such is the beginning of a beautiful friends turn into lovers turn into something muchstory.I won t get too much further into the plot, except to say that Brody and Elise s initial mutual attraction turns into why don t we be friends with benefits and lasts a good long while before they both realize that they ve done the unthinkable, and have fallen in love although both are reluctant to admit it These two were perfect for each other, and it s testament to LD s storytelling that she can keep the reader engrossed in a story that basically just tells what s going on in the H h s day to day life while their love story slowly develops Everthing is told in a totally natural, believable way and time frame Elise meets Brody s family, and starts hanging out with them and Brody s circle of friends Brody meets Elise s energetic daughter Rennie, and they hit it off and develop a strong bond Brody and Elise talk, revealing intimate things about their pasts as couples in a meaningful relationship do Elise has to deal with a jealous former girlfriend of Brody s out to wreck their relationship while dealing with issues of trust and with feelings of guilt about past decisions And all the while Brody is right there by her side, trying his best not to be too controlling Elise hates that but still being the protective guy that he is The longer this couple is together lovingly helping each other over life s little and one big, annoying hurdle near the end of the book that threatens Rennie s future , thethe reader wants them to realize that hey, can t you see you re in love.Sex scenes Hot, romantic, erotic, yet tastefully done And oh my, the things they do in Elise s dance studioand their first encounter whew Have a fan nearby because you ll need it Readers of the first book in the series about the Browns Laid Bare will be happy to know that siblings Adrian and Erin and her husbands are back to offer friendhip and support and encouragement and some razzing to their beloved brother This family may be a bit unconventional, but they are a loving and supportive bunch, much like in Ms Dane s exceptional Chase family series of books.I do love a story where either the hero or heroine, who s made a sacrifice or put their life on hold for some reason, finally gets their own well deserved HEA, so this one was very satisfying to me in that respect Readers looking for a hot contemporary about a couple of strong, deserving characters falling in love, and a story that s well developed, well told, and at times very emotional, will love this one These characters are ones that you will strongly root for and admire, and they ll tug at your heart strings I hope LD plans on writing younger brother rock star Adrian s story, because that guy needs a woman to love too 4 1 2 stars Warning This book contains explicit language and sex including oral a m m scene of oral sex, and a m f m menage scene neither scene involves the H h Not for the faint of heart.

    Opening LineEven at the close of the day, the sun was enough to make the ride home from work totally perfect Ever since I read Laid Bare I ve been waiting for Lauren Dane to continue with her sexy Brown family series and with Erin s brother Brody as our lead character here she doesn t disappoint COMING UNDONE grabs your attention right away with its cast of familiar characters, erotic love scenes, perceptive writing and Brody Wow, who wouldn t fall in love with this bad boy on the outsid Opening LineEven at the close of the day, the sun was enough to make the ride home from work totally perfect Ever since I read Laid Bare I ve been waiting for Lauren Dane to continue with her sexy Brown family series and with Erin s brother Brody as our lead character here she doesn t disappoint COMING UNDONE grabs your attention right away with its cast of familiar characters, erotic love scenes, perceptive writing and Brody Wow, who wouldn t fall in love with this bad boy on the outside, tender and sensitive on the inside charmer, sigh I have to say though not much ever really happens within this story it sa character study which Dane does very well, drawing the reader into the emotional lives of her characters with amazing dialogue and chemistry Our story takes place over the period of a year so we also get to watch the entire Brown family grow and change and in chapter 16 Erin Ben and Todd show us what they ve been up to in a detailed m nage romp and um yeahit s hot As a whole though I think true erotica fans will be slightly disappointed with the exception of chapter 16 because of the lack of heat Don t get me wrong Dane s sex scenes are amazing mirrored ballet studio or tattoo shop desk anyone and so well written they re just relatively tame compared to Laid Bare and it s over the top kink factor Still this is an amazingly hot and sensitive read that fans will love.Brody Brown has always been responsible for others giving up a promising art career to raise his younger brother and sister after their parents died Now that they ve grown and moved on Brody s life has finally become his own and with a prosperous tattoo shop, nice house and freedom to do as he pleases life is good However when Elise Sorenson moves in next door he can t help but get involved inways than one Once a world famous ballerina, Elise and her young daughter have moved far away from the horrors of her past hoping to start a new life The last thing she wants is a relationship especially with a tattooed, Harley riding bad guy but what Brody offers isn t a relationship instead he offers companionship with no strings attached A friends with benefits you might say and it s working for both of them until Elise s past comes back to haunt her Now as much as she doesn t want to admit it Elise might need Brody forthan just a good time in fact he may be what she truly desires.This could be read as a stand alone but readers would benefit from reading LAID BARE because it s awesome and you get the entire back story on the yummy Brown family and friends Cheers

    I won t write a plot synopsis, since there a few very detailed ones at GR already I absolutely loved Coming Undone The story takes place over about 1 1 2 years and you really get to know Brody and Elise I ve read all Ms Dane s Chase brothers books, and the first in this series, Laid Bare I loved all of her heroes They are alpha in most aspects, but also so warm and caring that I just want to cuddle with them all Well, at the very least, any way.There are quite a few secondary character I won t write a plot synopsis, since there a few very detailed ones at GR already I absolutely loved Coming Undone The story takes place over about 1 1 2 years and you really get to know Brody and Elise I ve read all Ms Dane s Chase brothers books, and the first in this series, Laid Bare I loved all of her heroes They are alpha in most aspects, but also so warm and caring that I just want to cuddle with them all Well, at the very least, any way.There are quite a few secondary characters that I ve become attached to as well in these two books I can t wait to read Inside Out , which is Cope and Ella s story.As I read this book, I was going to say this book wasextra steamy vs erotic Brody and Elise get pretty hot together However, there is a gratuitous chapter thrown in about 2 3 way through that revisits Erin, Ben, and Todd s bedroom from Laid Bare Content warning m m oral, menage all secondary characters

    UNDONE,LAID BARE AND WIDE OPEN Lauren Dane does it again, spinning an erotic tale with human emotion and sizzling sex This book is the second in a series revolving around a family of siblings and the women men they love Although this book is not as epic as the first it s just as good and emotional, then again my view could be biased because the first book had a very unusual coupling and I loved it.Brody Brown is the caretaker for everyone, raising his siblings from the tender age of 17 g UNDONE,LAID BARE AND WIDE OPEN Lauren Dane does it again, spinning an erotic tale with human emotion and sizzling sex This book is the second in a series revolving around a family of siblings and the women men they love Although this book is not as epic as the first it s just as good and emotional, then again my view could be biased because the first book had a very unusual coupling and I loved it.Brody Brown is the caretaker for everyone, raising his siblings from the tender age of 17 giving up his hopes and dreams to become the parents that they lost in an accident You might think that his live is without merits but it is the complete opposite he has raised two very successful people and he couldn t be prouder plus he aint doing so bad himself A successful tattoo artist surrounded by friends and family life isn t too bad All he needs is a casual romance and everything would be perfect That s what he finds in his neighbour Elise, what started as casual becomes so muchthan he would have imagined.Elise is escaping from a horrid past and moving to Seattle is just what s needed Finding great neighbours and good friends and living a normal life with her daughter The upside is that she has a very sexy and inked up bad boy neighbour, he personifies what fantasies are made of He lives inside Elise s fantasy every night, and man is he good Elise just wants a man without complications and Brody fits that bill what she doesn t expect is to love him and adore the way he treats her and her daughter Seems that healing and love can come in a big inked up package.This book was hot, not as hot as Laid Bare but it doesn t fall short, Dane knows people and writes what she knows on paper, and makes it raw Her books aren t just sex but a whole lotand that s why I enjoy her style of writing Brody is strong and tough but inside a sweet and caring person and the balance of that was beautiful Elise is strong after all she s been through no crying sappy female in this one just a beautiful strong woman The heat between the two characters could start a small forest fire that would last for a few days, hot, hot hot Plus chapter 16 gave me a stroke it was bloody steaming when she gave me a taste of Ben, Todd and Erin Blasphemy My fave trios If you love erotica and a good story then check out Dane s work, no disappointment MMM CHAPTER 16, GOD Read Laid Bare I should let you know, that I am no huge fan of M F erotica but Lauren Dane lights my fire, but I could blame that on Todd and Ben and oh yeh Erin the woman

    Have you ever read a book that everyone really seems to enjoy, but you find yourself having the opposite reaction This has happened to me in the case of Lauren Dane s Coming Undone I ve been a big fan of Lauren s past work and she really does write some of the best love scenes out there But with Coming Undone, I felt something was missing The plot didn t keep my interest because the plot came across as too ho hum, and the fact that the two main characters use each other for the soul purpose Have you ever read a book that everyone really seems to enjoy, but you find yourself having the opposite reaction This has happened to me in the case of Lauren Dane s Coming Undone I ve been a big fan of Lauren s past work and she really does write some of the best love scenes out there But with Coming Undone, I felt something was missing The plot didn t keep my interest because the plot came across as too ho hum, and the fact that the two main characters use each other for the soul purpose of being each other s booty call didn t give me that feel of a sexy and smoldering romance I usually think in terms of a Lauren Dane book.Coming Undone is a sequel of sorts to Laid Bare, which I didn t read But I will say that I was able to catch up with the characters in a way I wasn t confused The heroine of this tale is Elise Sorenson who has come to Seattle, Washington with her daughter Rennie where they can have a fresh start After a disastrous abusive marriage that left her unable to ever dance ballet professionally again, Elise has hope she can live without fear But, she still has to contend with her deceased husband s parents, especially her horrid ex mother in law, who is making plans to take Rennie away from her What Elise doesn t count on is her tattooed, Harley riding neighbor Brody Brown, who sends wonderful shivers down her spine It s been a very long time since she has had any sexual release with another man She knows he is very wrong for her because of his lifestyle, but can t help but wonder what it would feel like to have Brody s goateed mouth pressed against her own Brody is very interested in this widow, even though he thinks she would never be attracted to a man like him because he owns a tattoo shop and is constantly surrounded by a group of rowdy siblings and friends Brody takes a big chance and admits his attraction to Elise He visits her at her dance studio and comes out and says, I think we should expand our friendship to friends who have sex And since Elise would love nothingthan to have sex with Brody, she hops at the chance and they become friends with benefits.These two engage in a hot and heavy affair where they can t stay away from one another These two have quickies all over the place Soon their physical attraction changes into something deeper and Brody can t help but want Elise and Rennie as a permanent fixture in his life A big plus is his sister Erin heroine from Laid Bare , thinks Elise and her precocious daughter would be perfect Brody He just has to figure out a way to keep his ex lover Raven at bay who still wants him for her own, as well as Elise s ex in laws who harass her to the point where she thinks she ll loose Rennie forever.Coming Undone is a very simple read, meaning there s not a great deal of action, unlike her past few books I found myself wanting somethingand something deeper to happen because the majority of the scenes had an incredible amount of interaction with many characters There is a great amount of dialogue and scenes of everyday life that just didn t thrill me I also wasn t turned on by the many scenes of Brody and Elise having quick sex Their passion came across a bit too stilted and calculating for me to really enjoy.Brody is a wonderfully written hero and Elise is well rounded, but I felt their chemistry wastepid than hot, and their let s rip off our clothes and go at it love making too cool At one point I thought Elise and Brody would be better as just friends than lovers The only real external conflict is Elise worried about Rennie being taken away from her clich d villainous ex mother in law and Brody having to deal with the rebel like Raven who feels she has a claim on him because they were lovers in the past I waited, hoping for a big reveal or something explosive, but it never came.There s a lack of depth and overall conflict in Coming Undone, but for those who like a read in the terms of what you see, is what you get, then this latest by Lauren Dane is for you

    I m so glad that I continued with this series.Book 1 was unexpected and left me confused Book 2 allowed me to becomecomfortable with Erin s relationship even if I don t understand the mechanics and think it s unfair to Ben Brody and Elise s story was cute Elise and her daughter fit right in with the Brown s This story was a good segue from Erin to her big brother Brody However, there was an odd start to their relationship One moment they were admiring each other from across the stree I m so glad that I continued with this series.Book 1 was unexpected and left me confused Book 2 allowed me to becomecomfortable with Erin s relationship even if I don t understand the mechanics and think it s unfair to Ben Brody and Elise s story was cute Elise and her daughter fit right in with the Brown s This story was a good segue from Erin to her big brother Brody However, there was an odd start to their relationship One moment they were admiring each other from across the street, the next they were in each other s lives sexually and constantly Also, there could have been smoother transitions between scenes The author would move on, but then assume that we can read her mind Put space between paragraphs, add a line between different scenessomething.The most aggravating part of this story is that I would get lost and not know who is talking I constantly had to reread dialog to figure out who was talking Handles like Brody said or Erin murmured are needed for the reader to follow along Although I enjoyed book 1 and book 2, I m not sure if this series is for me I m on the fence about book 3 This book is a 3 star read for me, but Merry Christmas I m giving 4 stars

    This is the third book I ve read by Lauren Dane, and I think I d probably say it s my favorite so far It was a great read all around and I thoroughly enjoyed it.Series Note This book is the 2nd in Dane s unofficial Brown Siblings series For the most part I d say it s not necessary to have read the previous book, but there are a references and situations that would be clearer if you did read it Plus, it s a great book also so you should read it anyway.Summary Elise Sorenson escapes to Seatt This is the third book I ve read by Lauren Dane, and I think I d probably say it s my favorite so far It was a great read all around and I thoroughly enjoyed it.Series Note This book is the 2nd in Dane s unofficial Brown Siblings series For the most part I d say it s not necessary to have read the previous book, but there are a references and situations that would be clearer if you did read it Plus, it s a great book also so you should read it anyway.Summary Elise Sorenson escapes to Seattle after her life pretty much falls apart Her abusive ex husband is deadafter he injured her so badly that her dance career is over, and she s just won a court battle with his parents over custody of their daughter So to start over she moves to Seattle and opens a ballet studio Everything is going well for Elise and her daughterand they only get better when she meets hunky neighbor Brody Brown.With his tattoos, bad boy looks, and Harley riding ways, Elise wonders if she should stay away She s had her fill of bad boys, but once she gets to know Brody, she realizes he s one of the few genuinely good guys out there It doesn t hurt that there is a blazing chemistry between them Neither, though, are looking for a relationship so they settle on a friends with benefits compromise But as the two grow close, feelings grow and each secretly wantsFirst, though, Elise has to settle some issues from her past before she can hope to move on with Brody.Review The absolute best thing about this book was the character of Brody He is like my ultimate Alpha Bad Boy Good Guy I mean, he s got the whole bad boy thing going with all the tattoos and being a tattoo artist , the overall look, the Harley, the attitude and all thatbut he s is such a nice guy He s kind and caring, genuine, sweet, loving, etc Just an all around fantastic character I loved reading about him.I liked Elise as well, but not nearly as much as Brody Elise got on my nerves now and then with her semi lack of trust in Brody about her past and how she seemed to blame herself for every little thing But she was still a strong woman to have made it through what she did.On the romance frontgreat chemistry between these two characters I thought they fit really well together and the development of the relationship throughout the book was fantastic Plus, they had some smoking hot sex together Seriously hot stuff there And I liked how even though the scenes were erotic and hot, they didn t take over the book and make it a sex fest The story was very well rounded.I would say this book falls solidly into that contemporary romance genre where the book is all about the characters and the relationships and the trials and tribulations of life It s a pretty basic story, but the way Dane tells itthe characters, the emotions, the relationships, the sexall make it stand out and keep it from being boring.And I loved that the H H H from the last book Erin, Todd and Ben had a good sized role in this book I loved those three together and Dane gave us a nice peek into their life a very vivid peek, at that I just enjoyed this book all around It had just about everything I love in a good romance book I think Brody will be a character that stays in my mind for a whilenot sure if he can beat out Tara Janzen s Christian Hawkins as my fav, but Brody s up there near the top.WARNING, this book contains explicit sex and language, oral sex, light ass play, masturbation, and a scene with m m oral sex and m f m sex not involving the H H

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This came very highly recommended from several trusted sources, but, wow, it misfired on so many points for me The characters started off very promisingly, but then turned flat, like so many little paper dolls who had sex, and talked at each other, and had sex, and kept secrets, and had sex, and recited their secrets, and had sex Okay, to be fair, it s an erotic romance, so yes, they re going to have a lot of sex, except the heroine had been beaten and raped and brutalized not a terribly long This came very highly recommended from several trusted sources, but, wow, it misfired on so many points for me The characters started off very promisingly, but then turned flat, like so many little paper dolls who had sex, and talked at each other, and had sex, and kept secrets, and had sex, and recited their secrets, and had sex Okay, to be fair, it s an erotic romance, so yes, they re going to have a lot of sex, except the heroine had been beaten and raped and brutalized not a terribly long time before, which was pretty jarring And also to be fair, the sex was well written, except I couldn t get the paper doll metaphor out of my head, because everything else just seemed to be filler before we could get to another sex scene The ex in laws were such caricatures, I couldn t take their threats seriously yessss, let me tell you in a public bathroom how I m going to take your daughter away from you and make her hate you because you were so bourgeois that my son turned into the drug addict who raped and beat you so severely that you had to retire from your dancing career It doesn t have to make sense because I am eeeeevil Also, really Judges use the public restrooms in courthouses while they re involved in a custody hearing How convenient Alsoalso please A principal dancer with a thinly veiled ABT who kills her ex husband after being held prisoner in her apartment and beaten and raped by him, and who then goes through a very public custody battle with the aforementioned eeeeeevil ex in laws how is this not the topic of every link first 100 pages of google hits after her name This is an issue because a new boyfriend knows something bad has gone down, but not what, and doesn t think to google her, or even think about not googling her and not invading her privacy and b sister of new boyfriend DOES google her and finds only stuff related to her dance career I could go on, but it s probably best just to let it goooooo.Two stars but only because I did manage to finish it
