Heartbeats by Sarah O'Rourke *~*~*~*~*~* Blog Tour & Review



Heartbeats BY Sarah O'Rourke


He’ll fight her every step of the way. She’s fighting because there is no other way to keep him alive.

Alpha FBI agent Matteo Cassano gives the orders. He is not accustomed at all to following them. The control-freak legend of the FBI could have any woman he wants, and often had in the past. But when he meets the amazing, younger Brenna Langley, he might have finally found the woman that could change his entire life.

Brenna Langley is professional, focused, and determined to move ahead in her career at the FBI.  Having tried a few failed relationships, she had decided that romance would not be in the cards for her. That was, until Matt Cassano enters her orbit and she finds herself on a secret, covert mission to save the great man from himself. 

But what happens when these two determined personalities clash and the change is more than either one of them bargained for? And when Matt’s health becomes an issue, can the fledgling relationship survive?

STANDALONE. HEA. Romantica erotica.



Brushing a lingering kiss to the center of her now exposed porcelain skin, he lifted his eyes to hers and smiled wolfishly.  “I was just wondering if this couch is gonna provide enough room for me,” he replied as her ran two fingers down the center of her chest until they reached the clasp of her bra.

Her voice caught in her throat at his touch, and it was an effort to even get one word out. "Room to what, exactly?" she asked as her own fingers continued to release the buttons on his shirt. Feeling his lips moving against the fabric of her plain, serviceable lace bra, Bren finally freed that last button on his shirt, her sense of victory easily swallowed up in the sensations he was causing in her body. Burying her hands in the soft springy curls on his chest, she pushed the offending shirt off of his shoulders, her desire to see him too much to ignore.  “Whatcha think you’re gonna do here, Cassano?”

Catching her eyes with his, Matteo grinned against her pale flesh.  “Sweetheart, there’s no thinking to it.  I’ve imagined what I want to do to you a thousand times in a thousand different ways.  I know that I’m about to make those fantasies a reality.  I’m on the verge of devouring this beautiful body of yours.  I’m just curious as to where you’d rather serve me that meal.  Here or in a nice comfortable bed?  I’m good either place,” he returned huskily a scant moment before his teeth captured her nipple through the material of her bra.  Growling against her skin, he suddenly offered a great prayer of thanks to the brilliant genius who first imagined the possibilities of a bra with a front closing snap as his fingers quickly flicked open the clasp.

In one fell swoop, Bren felt her bra leave her body, the insubstantial material flying through the air.  If she wasn't mistaken,  she heard it land somewhere on the linoleum in the kitchen, and at some point later on she needed to remember to congratulate him on the distance he’d achieved. At this exact moment, however, that was the last thought on her mind as his wonderfully warm mouth suddenly found her waiting breast, engulfing it quickly in the fiery heat of his mouth.

Stars: 5

Just one more beat...

Great romantic comedy with a little suspense and lots of passion! You feel like you are in the middle of a huge Italian family get together. While balancing workplace romance on the federal level. Not your traditional Passion in Paradise romance - this one is more city chic and less country and I loved it!! And now a bit about the story...

Bren has been drawn to Matteo since be came back to work. What she doesn't know is he feels the same way. However long shifts tracking down unSubs (think Criminal Minds) keeps distracting them from many real dates. But as in any potential relationship there are some secrets, things that should have been left unsaid, and things not said enough... Will these two survive they're next case?

Favorite passages:
- she was wondering if he was stalking her like a lion would an antelope, she was smart enough to not allow things to move too quickly
- But what he could not stand for, what he would not allow, was decaf coffee. Somebody was going to pay for this one.
- "Careful, careful, Agent Cassano. You wouldn't want to offend the oracle before you receive the services you desire, now would you?'
- "I'm sorry, did I sleep through you being appointed dictator for the day?"
- "Mama knows, Kitty Cat, so put away your claws,"
- "Yeah, you saved her golden angel," Alex agreed. "With a slightly tarnished halo," Mari murmured, "but, still a halo nonetheless," she added with a slight smile at her brother. "Slightly tarnished, my ass! The thing has turned green and is half hanging off his head," Cath snorted.
- "Bella, don't you think you've established enough rules?"
- "Rabbit food doesn't take a hell of a long time to prepare,"
- "Always thinking with the brain in your pants,"

Sarah O'Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who bonded over their passion for romantic fiction and erotica. Born and raised in the southern United States, one lives near Louisville, Kentucky, while the other resides in Atlanta, Georgia.  Formerly an accountant and a chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children, their husbands...and writing about love in every way possible.

Inspired by their dog-eared copies of Gone with the Wind and their almost warped DVDs of Steel Magnolias, they love to write wildly intense romantic/erotica stories that have multiple characters, but they focus on one couple that will ALWAYS have a happy ending…eventually!
