Every girl needs three things
 1.  A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.
 Meet Cooper
 My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.
“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.
“Did I just what?”
She squints at me.  “You know.”
“Do I?”
“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”
I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”
“So you tasted me?”
My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”
“I can’t.”
“The day after then?”
She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile.
“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

2.  A best friend to talk about him to.
 Meet Sadie

“And I kissed him when we were in his office.”
“How was his office?”
“Really?  That’s what you want to know.  Not how was the kiss or aren’t you in breach of your contract?  How was his office?”
“You can tell a lot about a man by his office.”
I gulp another unladylike sip from my wine glass.  “His office was beautiful.  Sleek, overlooking the city.  It oozed power.”
“Nice.  Bet he fucks like he owns you.”
The thought of what he’s like in bed is enough to make me lose my train of thought.
“Go on,” Sadie prods.
I don’t continue immediately.
“You forgot what you were up to because you were thinking of him fucking you like he owns you, didn’t you?”  My best friend smirks knowingly.
“Shut up.”  I pause.  “Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
“Well, him.  Obviously.”
“I wish it were that easy.”

3.  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?
::: 5 Throbbing Kisses | Dual POV| Standalone (within a series) | HEA | Hollywood ::: 

My favorite Vi Keeland book to date!

In need of money to pay back loans and other debts, Kate signs up for a new reality dating show, Throb. The bachelor is an up and coming rock star with devilish good looks and he has an eye on Kate from the start of filming.

Cooper, owner of one of the top film companies in Hollywood, has once again agreed to back up another project his brother has cooked up. As much as they don’t get along, Cooper’s willing to hear out and help his brother Miles whenever he needs. Even if his new reality show seems like yet another failure. 

Cooper and Kate meet one night at a game of poker and the attraction sizzles. Kate would love nothing more than to accept Cooper’s proposal of a date, but her contract for Throb doesn’t allow it. What these two strangers don’t realize is that they have way more in common than they know. There’s a connection that will have them coming face to face unexpectedly and will have them facing a serious dilemma. 

As Cooper and Kate try to figure out a way to date in secret, her reality show stud works hard to get her attention. And he certainly gets it. But can he compete with the other man in her heart?

The first woman I can't stop thinking about in years, and she's about to have the most romantic date of her life...with someone else.

I loved how Cooper went for what he wanted no matter what. He never let the threat of the contract or the bachelor keep him from pursuing Kate. He wanted her, and I’m not just talking about wanting a one night stand, no he needed her in more ways than one. He comes off as just this bossy (which he totally is), hot shot, but he’s so much more. He’s a true gentleman and he’s insanely sweet and kind. Let us not discard that sexy mouth of his that is constantly spurting hilarious one-liners and panty-dropping, dirty talk.

Kate is just an adorable, selfless peach. I couldn’t stop wanting to hug her and admire her strength and determination. The love she had for her family was out of this world and rare to witness. She was willing to give up things she loved and desired in order to provide a better life for them. A truly remarkable young woman.

I’d recommend this romance to anyone looking for a hot, fast-paced read. I was unknowingly flipping pages at lighting speed in this book. I was so engrossed in it and connected with these characters straight away. I never wanted it to end! I’m so excited to see what Keeland comes up with next for Beat, book two in this series focusing on another set of characters.
5 Throbbing Kisses
Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work.  She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
