BLOG TOUR ~ REX by Beth Michele (Review)

Title: Rex (Finding Love #2)
Author: Beth Michele
Genre: Contemporary Romance



It all started with a simple phrase.

Love Sucks

The moment Vanessa Hilliard walked into the tattoo shop uttering those two words was the day my life began its downward spiral.

Or maybe it’s the day my life began.

My name is Rex Grayson.

And this is my story.


The day I met Rex Grayson, I got a hell of a lot more than I bargained for. He sparked something inside of me -- possibility. A word that never existed in my world before. He caused me to question who I was and made me want things I never dreamed were possible.

We’ve both got a mountain of shit in our past.

My name is Vanessa Hilliard. I have an affinity for the unusual and seriously twisted.

He thinks this is his story.

But it’s really mine.

**This is a full-length Adult Contemporary Romance that contains mature sexual content and language and is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

This story is of two damaged souls that are both struggling with the pasts.  Both Rex and Vanessa have some serious demons that they are fighting.  Neither one believed in love. They both enjoyed meaningless sex, there weren't any connections involved.  Things begin to change and sparks begin to fly between the two of them.  Something that started out as just sex, quickly turned into something fierce between the two of them.  Both of them were drawn to each other, yet neither one wanted to admit their feelings for the other.  Was this for fear of rejection.  Fear of commitment? Both Rex and Vanessa have a wall built around their hearts.  But little by little, their walls begin to fall and they are both left standing with their hearts in their hands.  Will Rex give his heart to Vanessa?  Will Vanessa give her heart to Rex?  Can the two of them accept each other's past?  Can the two of them let their pasts go in order to move on with the future?

I loved seeing the sparks fly between Vanessa and Rex.  Neither one of them were ever short with words, and they both put up a really good fight to stop themselves from falling for the other.  My heart went out to Rex for the pain that he was carrying from his past.  Rex left few people in, but somehow Vanessa was able to get under his skin.  I loved seeing Vanessa fall for Rex.  The two of them both deserved happiness, they both deserved to be loved.  The last two Chapter was my favorite part of the book.  Who would have thought, a sharpie marker would have such a significant bearing. (lol) 

Beth Michele delivered another great love story that will have you falling for her characters. I highly recommend this book.  I have to say, when I was reading this book, I pictured Rex as Adam Levine.  The hot, built guy covered in tattoos, it just screamed YUMMY!!!!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


I subtly open my legs, hoping he might take the hint and move his hand where I really need it. Instead, he continues to drive me crazy with his calloused finger circling just above my knee. His warm breath fans my neck, and I bite back the noise that wants to escape when his tongue makes contact with that sensitive spot behind my ear. “You taste so good,” he murmurs, “and I bet you’re already wet for me.” “Beyond wet,” I whisper back, not wanting the taxi driver to hear and think that I’m a sex-crazed freak, even though I feel like one. Rex inhales a jagged breath, his hand finally wandering higher up my thigh. “I can’t wait until my tongue can find out just how much,” he says quietly. And when I glance up at him, his eyes denote a hunger that lights a flame inside of me. One that’s been buried for quite some time. I press my lips together, staring out the window in an attempt to distract myself. My skin tingles with anticipation as I try to rein in my breathing that is currently out of control. But I don’t have to wait too long. Within minutes, the taxi pulls up in front of his building. Rex pays the driver and practically jerks me from the seat, latching onto my hand as we fly into the building like two sex-starved lunatics. He hesitates the moment we enter the glass door, glancing up at the flight of stairs then back to me. With a devious grin, he scoops me up under my knees and I let out a yelp of surprise. “Ahh! What on earth are you doing, Rex?” I laugh, my head dropping back. He continues striding up the stairs with purpose. “What does it look like I’m doing?” “Why are you carrying me? I can walk, you know.” “Blondie, shut up 
and kiss me,” he demands. “I need motivation for climbing.”
