Blog Tour: Throb by Vi Keeland @ViKeeland

The rules:
No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?
Eight weeks ago I signed a contract.  One that seemed like a good idea at the time.  A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed.  There were some rules though.  Lots of them actually.  Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal.  After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought.  Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

A gentleman that turns into a bossy dirty talker in the bedroom.
Cooper – behind closed doors.

“You haven’t even begun to see bossy yet.  Tonight I’m going to tell you to do things, and you’re going to do them.  When I tell you to open wider, or take my cock deeper, you’re going to listen.  You know why?  Because since the moment we met, all I’ve wanted to do is make you feel good.  Hell, I don’t even need to get off physically.  Because I’m going to get off watching you every minute.  So, yeah, I’m going to be bossy.  Now let’s put the rest of this behind us.  Do you want to be with me tonight?”
After that prelude, I nod my head fast.  I’m no fool.  Who wouldn’t?

Throb left me




With great excitement thanks to Vi Keeland’s latest leading heartthrob, Cooper Montgomery.

This read was a pleasant surprise. So glad I jumped right in blind, without a single clue as to what this story was about. And what I found was a refreshing plot filled with passion, a cast of characters I come to adore and some I absolutely loathed. Once starting, I was immediately hooked, smitten with the deliciously bossy Cooper.  It was easy to fall in love with his filthy mouth and titillating ways. Always dominating in the bedroom; Cooper is a take-charge kind of guy – rich, powerful and all business. But, life becomes intensely uneasy when circumstances involving his relationship with Kate were not in his control. He is determined to claim her, regardless of the fact that she was unavailable. Pure Alpha-hotness.

Poor Kate. Her timing truly sucked when meeting Cooper. Stuck with making a heart wrenching decision – fall for the perfect guy or following through on her reality show contract. Following her heart will lead her into a blissful romance. Listening to her mind will allow her the chance to help her family out of a dire financial situation. I was sent into a whirlwind as Kate's future was at risk, cursing the rules that bound her…

-       no dating outside the program
-       no sex outside the game
-       do not break any rules
-    to win the prize, she must make another man fall for her charms

Kate and Cooper’s life is spinning out of control, as his bastard of a brother, Miles, is the ruthless master of the game. Regardless, they manage to turn on the heat and bend the rules with stolen moments of sizzling passion which I savored. But all the while, I was on the edge of my seat, as the drama level was kicked up to high. Kate forced to make a decision that will change her life, and Cooper finds himself backed into a corner with nowhere to turn. This story was intense.

All in all, Throb was a great read for me and I highly recommend giving it a try. Vi Keeland’s writing style is the perfect blend of serious sexiness laced with humor. Although part of a series involving different couples, this read is considered a standalone with no cliffhanger ending. There are some that feel this is a love triangle of sorts, but in my opinion, it is not in any way. And now my wait begins for the next installment – a definite must read.


Vi Keeland just took me for a emotional ride. For the most part I was in my happy place this entire book. I have several no fly zones when it comes to my romance. The weird part is that .. I'd have never been able to read this story if Kate and Coopers situations were reversed. I barely tolerated Kate at one particular point but had to try to put myself in her shoes for a moment and.. still really don't think I could fully understand her. There are just some things that didn't add up for me. I liked Kate but felt something was always. . just off. That is the only reason I couldn't give this story 5 stars. Kate had other options but she stayed with the one that hurt Cooper. But Cooper oh man what really kept me riveted and mesmerized because Vi just has that it factor when she creates her heroes. His dominant and bossy ways were sublime and I really felt him fall for Kate. He always had Kate's best interest at heart.  Sexy and sweet and bumpy at times.. even when I was fuming mad I didn't want to stop reading just because I had to know how it would play out. As for Flynn.. really not sure about him. The whole scenario with him grossed me out. Its hard to see him in a better light after that. Vi may surprise me though. Either way Cooper is going down as one of my favorite heroes ever.
