New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part VI When You Trust Me Furious, confused, and thousands of miles apart, Elise confronts Lucien about being left in the dark, about his relationship with Francesca and Ian, and about the true nature of his mission in Chicago. But just the sound of Lucien’s sonorous voice is enough to satisfy Elise for now. Even over the phone his skills of command and dominance are as thrilling as his touch. So potent, so demanding, and so irresistible Elise can’t help but listen...and obey. But the mystery deepens upon Lucien’s return, when Elise overhears him talking to a stranger about matters that confuse and worry her. Lucien does admit one intimate secret that leaves her stunned...not to mention grateful that he's trusting her more. Elise is still curious, but a decadently romantic night under the stars with Lucien makes her forget everything but her growing love for him. And she’s only too happy to give Lucien what she promised—her total submission, body and soul. Includes a bonus excerpt of Beth Kery’s Exposed to You More to come. Don't miss When I’m With You, Part VII, coming 4/16

Elise has to learn that if she wants Lucien to treat her like she can be trusted then she must be trustworthy. And Lucien has to learn that he has to take a leap of faith and put his trust in someone before he loses Elise and ends up alone forever.

Elise struggles with her identity. Because of her past and because Lucien hasn’t seen her in a long time, he assumes she’s the rebellious woman she used to be. Feeling like she has to constantly prove herself is frustrating for her. Lucien holds Elise’s past against her a bit. He’s not being very fair to her. It’s obvious he cares about her, but he’s still seemingly more interested in protecting himself. For her part, Elise is still acting out, although she is trying. The connection between Ian Noble and Lucien is finally partly revealed in When You Trust Me. This interesting storyline continues to grow.

New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part V When You Submit Elise feels regret for pushing Lucien over the sensual edge. He is no longer able to deny himself now that he’s taken her, and installs her in his bed for good. At her friend Francesca’s urging, Elise dares something new with Lucien—an attempt at honest communication, and not just about her career plans, but about something more challenging: She wants to submit to him completely. Lucien is moved by Elise’s honesty, but must leave for Paris to attend to one of his father’s companies. Also troubling for Elise is that Francesca and Ian seem to know everything about Lucien, including his secrets. All but one. Something even Elise doesn’t know. Whatever the cost, Elise is determined to confront Lucien about his past, and why, after all they’ve been through, is he just as determined to keep her in the dark. Includes a bonus excerpt of Beth Kery’s Paradise Rules More to come. Don't miss When I’m With You, Part VI, coming 4/9

Elise and Lucien have reached a precipice in their relationship. Elise is learning more about herself and how to please Lucien but little about the secrets Lucien is harboring. Those secrets could destroy their future together.

When You Submit is my favorite story (so far) in this serial. Yes, the sex is hotter and kinkier, but the emotional connection between Lucian and Elise is intensifying as well. Elise is more than a pretty face. She’s a hard worker, and her restaurant idea is amazing. Lucien recognizes that too now. It’s relief to see them connecting more. Elise is really vulnerable. Lucien demands that Elise give herself to him in every way while he remains an enigma to her. Elise recognizes now that she pushes Lucien, and that she does it because she wants him desperately. Her erotic self-discipline lessons teach them both a few things, but Lucien still feel the need to keep her in the dark about his past and his interest in his friend Ian Noble.

New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part I When We Touch Restaurateur and self-exiled heir Lucien Lenault’s first look at the breathtaking young chef trainee for his trendy Chicago restaurant is a shock. She’s Elise Martin, daughter of a wealthy French fashion designer. She’s also the holder of a secret that could explode his carefully laid plans. Notorious for her flagrant exhibitionism, and for flouting the respectable façade of her aristocratic background, the coquine’s wild streak shocked most people. Not Lucien. He was tempted by it. It was a deliriously punishable offense as far as Lucien was concerned. But taking on Elise is more than a game. She’s a catastrophe waiting to happen, an inferno that’s burned many a lover. Lucien isn’t most men, however, and he won’t allow her to manipulate him. In order to control the defiant beauty—in order to see her submit—he’s going to have to willingly walk in the flames... Includes a bonus excerpt of Beth Kery’s Because You Are Mine More to come. Don't miss When I’m With You, Part II, available 3/12

Restaurateur Lucien Lenault is shocked when he finds Elise Martin in his restaurant attempting to get a job as his chef. Elise is beautiful and infuriating and a blast from his past that could jeopardize everything he’s working toward. Elise claims she’s trying to start a new life for herself. Lucien thinks he sees right through her charm to the schemer underneath, though. When Lucien is given no choice, he agrees to help Elise, but only on his terms.

From the moment Lucien and Elise see each other it’s clear they have a tumultuous past. The attraction and animosity between them is tangible. Which is greater is yet to be seen. They both come from wealthy, dysfunctional families and have fled France and their problems. I love the dynamics between them. Elise met Lucien when she was fourteen and he twenty-one. They haven’t seen each other in two years. His denial of her feelings when she was old enough to express them hurt her badly. They’ve known each other a long time, and their chemistry is undeniable. Elise’s feelings for Lucien and Lucien’s secrets, especially those concerning Ian Noble, foster the intensity and sensuality of When We Touch. I’m intrigued by Lucien and Elise and anxious for what’s undoubtedly yet to come.

New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part VIII When We Are One In the luxury of Ian’s penthouse, he, Francesca, Lucien and Elise gather for an evening that begins in pleasure and ends in a shattering confrontation—one that finally reveals the secrets of Lucien’s past. And, at Elise’s impulsive urging, the bitter truth that Lucien has hidden for so long is finally exposed. But the reality is more soul tearing than Elise imagined—leaving her with the guilt that she pushed the man she loves too far. When both Lucien and Ian go to London, Elise is left in self-doubt. Surely Lucien is furious at her for tipping his hand so impetuously—it has been his greatest fear since he met her. With a heavy heart, Elise makes a heartrending decision for both of them. But Lucien has one more reveal for Elise, one that could make or break a relationship that has consumed the both of them. One that could change their futures forever.

Elise and Lucien go to Ian and Francesca’s for good food with good friends, but things take a drastic turn when Ian reveals a secret and Lucien reveals even bigger ones.  Elise blames herself for blurting things out. Will this misunderstanding cost them everything?

The final installment of the When I’m With You series is yet another turning point in Lucien and Elise’s relationship. Romantically, When We Are One has everything, including angst and poignancy. Their relationship has come full circle, but it was a roller coaster along the way, full of ups and downs, in and out of bed. Elise finds happiness with Lucien, and while he does with her as well, his ending is a little unsettled. He’s discovered information about his past, but will he seek answers? And will Ian do the same? I love the intensity of the When I’m With You series—mainly the dynamics between Elise and Lucien. Each installment makes the next even better. Questions remain, and outcomes are open, though. I’m looking forward to reading more about Francesca and Ian in Because We Belong. I didn’t get enough of them in this series or in Because You Are Mine. And while Elise and Lucien’s story could be complete, I’d love to continue reading about them as well. When I’m With You is the perfect combination of erotic romance BDSM.

New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the past—and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desires... When I’m With You, Part IV When I’m Bad Lucien knows there’s no going back now—Elise is not a woman a man takes in half measure. It’s all or nothing. In moving forward to make her his—completely—he promises that if she submits she’ll discover what she craves too. The kind of sharp, imperative edge of pleasure she’s never truly known before. But Elise proves to be such a wild, fiery, and sexually fearsome woman that Lucien wonders if she can ever really surrender to him. When she does let loose, Lucien fears that he is the one getting closer to being burned. As the two of them get deeper into a dangerous sexual dance, Lucien can’t help but wonder if the exquisite firestorm that Elise has ignited could expose his secrets, draw him dangerously close to the edge, and leave his future in ashes. Includes a bonus excerpt of Beth Kery’s Release More to come. Don't miss When I’m With You, Part V, coming 4/2

Elise has always had a strong will, and what she wants she gets. She wants Lucien to let go of his tight control and give himself to her. But she might have pushed him too far this time. When I’m Bad is a milestone for Elise and Lucien. While there are still more to come (hopefully) this is a pretty big deal. Sex is as intense as I thought it would be between them, physically of course, but emotionally too. For Elise, sex with Lucien is hard, hot, and a bit confusing. For Lucien, Elise’s passion is consuming, her defiance frustrating, and her innocence surprising. Elise is unsure of her boundaries with Lucien and why she pushes them. She’s wanted Lucien for a long time, and she seems perfect for Lucien’s sexual appetites. But whether or not they can fulfill each other in every aspect remains to be seen. Lucien is allowing Elise into his life but not opening up to her, whereas Elise seems to be the one bared, literally and figuratively, to Lucien. Hot sex, massages, and restraints are a few of the ways Lucien uses to teach her what he wants and show her what she needs in When I’m Bad.
