ARC Review ~ Tell Me You Want Me (Search and Seduce, #2) by Joya Ryan

Tell Me You Want Me (Search and Seduce, #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: January 4th 2016

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

She’s getting dirty with the bad boy…

Determined to find her inner badass and save her business, boutique owner Michelle Ruby signs up for a twenty-four hour survival class. Except, she’s the only person who registered, and the guide is a sex-on-a-stick G.I. Joe come to life. Between his massive muscles, smoldering blue eyes, and “there’s no crying in camping” attitude, she’s in trouble…in more ways than one.

Search and rescue squad member Dex Young never thought he’d be roped into teaching “survival skills” to pageant queens. His sole student is upper class, upper state, and sexy as hell. And he has a sneaking suspicion that beneath her tight updo and designer jeans, there’s a sex kitten waiting to claw her way out.

But Dex knows women like her. Knows they only bring guys like him home to piss off their daddies. If it’s the bad boy experience she wants, she’ll get it. And Dex? Well, he can’t wait to find out just how dirty Michelle’s willing to get…

My Opinion

Tell Me You Want Me sounded like a book that was right up my alley. Hot survival expert? Yep. Wilderness training alone? Yep. Everything about that had loads of potential for passion and romance. Unfortunately it just didn't work for me.

I struggled to engage with the characters if I'm honest. I didn't feel they were developed enough, but rather they were almost cookie cutter moulded with a standard, simple background that wasn't tied up. There wasn't enough detail for me to actually feel anything.

Similarly, although there were a few steamy moments, I didn't really buy into the connection between Dex and Michelle. Sometimes it was cheesy and I just lost interest as the book went on until I was skimming.

Overall this just didn't work for me. Maybe my expectation were too high? I don't know, but there didn't feel like there was enough emotional depth or story. I didn't know who or what to root for. There's potential, but I think more detail and book is needed.
