Z is for Zolt Hamiliton (Being Zolt) By Dawna Raver


But in all honesty the only reason I'm continuing the A to Z is because of this author and this book!  She deserves recognition and her book needs to be read! The Indulging series is the first erotica/NA series (Besides Fifty Shades of Grey of course) that I have ever read.

So Being Zolt is the second book in the Indulging series. It follows Irelyn a sheltered girl who has only had one boyfriend before, her brother's friend Marcus. When Irelyn was younger she was at a football game where Zolt was the star quarterback and ended up getting hurt. During that time they had a connection and it followed them all the way until she was in college. Neither one knew the other, they just both felt that initial spark.

When Zolt becomes a lawyer at her dad's law firm the chemistry flies and soon Irelyn and Zolt are having major feelings for each other. The second book picks up on the cliffhanger from the first book.  I personally love cliffhangers because it makes me want the new book immediately. Although Zolt and Irelyn are great characters I think my favorite character is Sloan, Zolt's friend and bodyguard.  Who, fortunately for me, was able to get his own book with Saving Kenna. I really connected with all the characters in the Indulging series but Sloan probably more than everyone else.  I love how Zolt's alpha male is randomly broken with his past demons. I love how the twists and turns with Marcus are approached in this book and mostly how I went "HOLY CRAP" and "YES" when certain things happened.  If you like erotica/NA and brooding male characters with a whole lot of stamina and class then the Indulging series is definitely for you!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: (taken from her website)

“Smart ass by nature, writer by accident.”
D L Raver didn’t always want to be a writer, but now the voices in her head won’t shut the f**k up and the stories keep coming.
She’s an Amazon Best Selling Author of new adult erotic romance and new adult romantic fantasy (under Dawna Raver). The Indulging Series was her first new adult erotic romance series, and is proud that Zolt Hamil from this series was voted in top ten list of Fictional Boyfriends’ top Fictional Boyfriends.
When she’s not spending time in her fantasy world, D L Raver loves NFL football, reading, and pretending she’s a top chef in the kitchen—even though experiments often lead to ordering out.
Oh, and fawning over her dogs and husband, sometimes in that order.

(On a Personal note)

Dawna is not only a great author but I have enjoyed getting to know her the last couple months. She not only writes her books but designs all of her book covers as well. I enjoy talking with her when I get the chance and love how each of her stories is full of great characters and stories that draw you in. I've gone to her for advice and every time she is full of great information for me. She's just an overall amazing person!  (Sorry this post is so late Dawna, just been super busy with kids sports and stuff! But here it is :D)

 NFL quarterback, Zolt Hamil was America’s heartthrob until a career ending injury changed his life. Years later, he’s picked up the pieces and carved out a new path for himself. But the mental and physical scars of that day have left him moody and reclusive, and his only relief is indulging in pleasure and pain with his many one night stands. Though many women have tried, Zolt refuses to care about any of them. Only one woman has his heart; a hallucination of a young, sable-eyed, blonde beauty whom he conjured that painful day on the football field.
On the first day at his new job at a law firm in Scottsdale, Arizona, Zolt comes face to face with his hallucination, Irelyn Wilkes. Their fateful connection, and explosive passion for each other pulls them together, and this time, Zolt refuses to let her slip from his life.

But Irelyn has her own demons to fight, and her controlling boyfriend is one of them. He doesn't take kindly to other people playing with his toys, and he’ll stop at nothing to keep her by his side. 

Can Irelyn and Zolt defy the odds and find a way to be together? Or, will the events set in motion years ago keep them apart forever?

Irelyn Wilkes was Zolt Hamil’s seraph. His angel. His hallucination suddenly real. But her abrupt departure from his life has sent him into a tailspin of nameless women, alcohol, and drugs. When Zolt realizes that Irelyn lied to him, he sobers up and sets into motion a public rescue, making an even greater enemy of Marcus Xavier.
Marcus doesn’t take kindly to people taking what is his, and he’s not about to let Zolt and Irelyn ride into the sunset without a fight. He’s already murdered her brother; taking out Zolt Hamil would make his day.

Can Zolt and Irelyn mend their broken relationship and find a way back to each other? Or will Marcus succeed with his plans to separate this fated pair forever?

Saving Kenna is an erotic stand-alone novel with an Irish twist, a bunch of second chances, and a sweet happy ever after set in the Indulging Series world. It is not necessary to read Indulging in Irelyn or Being Zolt, but I hope you'll want to after reading Kenna & Sloan's story. 

I knew from the first moment I saw her, Kenna Campbell would be my undoing. I've done my best to stay away from her, but I fail at every turn. Now, she's been taken from me, and I'll stop at nothing to get her back.

Irish born, Sloan Sullivan is a man with a past he can't escape. Everything about him, from his identity to his profession, is a lie.

Until he met Kenna, he didn't think twice about his fraudulent life. Now, his past is threatening his future and preventing him from saving the woman he loves.

I've loved Sloan from the moment I saw him. Though he pushes me away at every turn, and his alpha male tendencies frustrate me, I never leave. I always give him a second chance.

Kenna Campbell fell in love with Sloan Sullivan when she was sixteen. Throughout the years, she's stayed true to him even when it hurt her to do so.

In a heartbreaking turn of events, Kenna falls prey to Marcus Xavier's evil game. Though she's physically survived the brutality she suffered at the hands of two men, her emotional and mental scars refuse to heal, and she wonders if she's broken beyond repair.

Is love enough to keep these two together, or will the monsters from both their pasts destroy them forever?
