Sybil Bartel
(Thrust, #2)
Publication date: March 20th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.

My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.

When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just the cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.

One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.

I discovered Sybil last year when I had the opportunity thread and review Talon.  Though Talon belongs to another series (Uncompromising Series), all those guys are pretty linked together and I loved the little overlap with the other series.

It was really nice to get back with those boys again cause they are mighty fine!!

Jared is no different!

Did I mention he is an escort?

Yup….. you read that one right!

Gotta hand it to Sybil, she know how to write those sexy alpha males with a heart and trust me there is no choice but to love them, and Jared is a fabulous character.  He is such a simple and complex character all at the same time.

And then comes Sienna and the temperature sky rockets…

Bad Boy vs. Good Girl…

And the rest is History!!! … oh I forgot to mention that you may need a cold shower after you are done because this is HOT!!!!

Alright, so what you need to know is that Rough is book 2 of the Thrust series, I did not read book 1. How did I even miss that but I will remedy that soon (I still have piles of books to read).

Plus I think that I have Neil (Book 2 from The Uncompromising Series somewhere in my Kindle) that I also need to read and review.  Luckily tons of public holidays in the UK this time of year so I promised myself to play catch up for you guys I promise!

In all seriousness, if you are looking for a steamy romance go no further my darlings cause Rough will tick all of the boxes for all that is hot and melty in a romance.  Sybil know what she is writing and I am a huge fan!

Trust me, you are not going to regret it!


Author Bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
