How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

As the ever dutiful daughter at her father's prestigious real estate firm, Frankie Jordan never mixes business with pleasure. But after meeting her new client, Derek Block, her sexual fantasies have turned into intense cravings. This animalistic man has become the object of her desire. Only she can't have him.

Derek Block is so close to finally getting revenge against the man who tried to destroy him. But after one meeting with Frankie Jordan, his focus is gone. He needs to be inside her, to worship her submissive body until she screams. And then his dick needs to stay the hell away from her...but it has a mind of its own.

This is The Unblocked Collection, which includes all five novellas.

The best 14 hours I've spent in a long time!

If you could sum up The Unblocked Collection in three words, what would they be?

Rollercoaster, exciting, love

What did you like best about this story?

I loved that even though there were road blocks and bumps, they kept coming back to the idea of love.

What does Joe Arden and Molly Glenmore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joe and Molly bring so much emotion to this story that I can't bring out in my imagination.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment when she finally realized that she could allow love and her career in her life equally and still be happy. I believe a lot of people find it hard to make it all work and this book brings hope.

DNF

I could just not read this book. I stoped 1/4 in to it. The man was awful in so many ways. I’m not against the whole alpha man and so on. But he was too much. And the woman... Why can’t there be more romance book with fierce women and fierce but empathic men? And no - it’s not a turn on to be overly confident.

Yawn

I was bored with the story line. I guess the sex was decent but I struggled with the relationship development.

Love love love!!

I love this book!!! I wish there was more suspense between Block and his Uncle and Frankie and Reid! It would have brought an element of nail biting!! But over all I loved the characters and would have loved more domination from Derick!

Issa no for me dawg

I read a lot of romance novels-- they're my one vice. So I have a very high tolerance for corn, absurd plots, endless alphas, lazily-written secondary characters, problematic af slut-shaming, foiled abduction plots, you name it. But Unblocked ~blocked~ me from finishing it. (I couldn't help myself.)

I made it all the way to the first really ~sensual~ scene (in the restaurant) but I had to stop because it was SO badly written. I liked both the narrators and I cannot even imagine how many times those poor souls had to practice reading this without lol-ing.

The odd part is that Mann took a lot of time to flesh out both Derek & Frankie's jobs, motivations, and flaws. I could tell she put in some effort to research corporate real estate & I was on board!

But THEN that absurd sex dialogue, my dudes, I could not EVEN. I can moooostly handle some dumb pillow talk in these books. But I lose my patience when I feel like the author feeds words like "juices, wet, moan" and other more x-rated descriptors into their Super Sexy Times Word Processor 2000™ and expect the reader to be like "yup, I am arouzzled" AND for us to believe that an intelligent, able heroine would be WOOED by it.

Like, what?? Has she ever been messaged by a creep on Tinder or read a bathroom wall? This ain't nothing new! It ruined the rest of it for me, because I no longer believed Frankie would be attracted to Derek or that he deserved to waste any more of her time.

Aim higher than 7th grade boy speak, Marni Mann. The Frankies of the world deserve better.

Christian Grey meet Derrick Block

This book is a non-stop raw stimulating SEX. There is a story line and a happily ever after but I can't believe that I hadn't found my this book earlier. Joe Arden voice makes an already sexy charter even better with his amazing voice.

Sex but no story.....

Horrible. Unreadable. Just a bunch of sex strung together by some bad story telling. Very disappointed given I really liked some of Mann’s other books.

Horrible.

The male lead is gross. I do not get it at all. I can't stand the way he talks about women.

Not sure how I feel about this one

I like a well written sex scene as much as the next junkie but (can’t believe I’m saying this ), there is such thing as too much of a good thing. If you take those scenes out of this book you are looking at maybe 2 hours worth of story. The heroin was a bit of a wino and I think her friend was a little over the top. That being said, it was well written, intriguing, and the narration was outstanding ! I didn’t feel, even with the length, that it was a waste of time, but I was glad to get to the end. All questions answered, no cliffhangers and a hea. This is a solid read.

I couldn’t finish it

This book is 80% sex and I got tired of skipping through the same scenes to hear the story. Love a good romance but this is over the top.

Disappointing characters and story

I was unable to finish this tedious epic. Given the length the characters are shallow and juvenile. although I love erotic and steamy fiction I recommend this for readers who enjoy reading about male control freaks and sexually submissive women. the male lead despite his success is depicted as a flanette wearing lumberjack . Rather than hot the sexualiation of the female lead and descriptions and unbelievable repetitive nature all their sexual encounters was at best boring and at worst degrading and the level of female submission extremely male centric. There are lots of fantasy cliches from sexual encounters in public and a few shades of gray but if you prefer more balanced and moderm female heroic romances I recommend reading Helena Hunting over this author. can't fault the performance of the readers... wouldn't of made it far without them!
