BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND EXCERPT: WANT (Ryder Brothers #2) by Kayti McGee

WANT (Ryder Brothers #2) by Kayti McGee

Release Date: October 31st

Cover Design: Laurelin Paige

Photographer: Rob Lang


Welcome to Hollywood, where wet dreams come true.

I fell for Marlee the second I met her- gorgeous smile, unimpressed by my stardom… bendy.

Not even remotely interested in me.

Of course the girl of my dreams has to be engaged to her hometown high-school sweetheart. Nothing’s ever easy, right?

Until they break up.

And she moves in with me.

The only person who can help her practice for her next role is me.

Because Marlee isn’t just new to Hollywood.

She’s a virgin.

My Review

Want – to have a desire to possess or do (something); wish for

A pretty straightforward definition for something that has the capacity  to consume one’s life and change its entire direction, and that’s exactly what happens when Jake Ryder meets Marlee on the set of one of his music videos, and even though the dynamics of their relationship doesn’t start off the way Jake wants it to, a time comes when there’s a possibility for something more than friendship between them and because this is something Jake has wanted for some time, he’s not about to let this opportunity pass him by and what he decides to do will either get him what he wants with Marlee or ruin what they originally had.

Because readers are privy to both Jake and Marlee’s perspectives, we know exactly  how these two feel about each other, and even though I was amazed by how oblivious Marlee is to Jake’s true feelings for her, I think that it only adds to how sweet these two are together and how easy it would be for them to find love with one another if Marlee would only take a minute to think about all the ways that Jake has made her life better and more complete.

Kayti McGee creates a unique way for Jake to prove himself to Marlee and show her how to find her sensual side. Jake’s guidance is invaluable to Marlee, especially since she’s completely innocent when it comes to this side of things and while I didn’t quite understand why she would accept a job with the provisions set before her, as long as it served as a way to give Jake his shot with the love of his life then I was more than willing to see how it would all play out, even if it frustrated me to no end at times because it felt like everything was moving in slow motion.

After witnessing just how close the Ryder brothers are and how they live to razz one another in book one, I wanted to experience more of that in Want, and Kayti McGee gave me more Ryder brother goodness which adds to the dynamics of the storyline and offers a bit of comic relief when things get a bit unpredictable between Jake and Marlee.

I’m a sucker for a friends-to-lovers romance; I love it when a hero and heroine already have an established bond due to their friendship; it allows love to shine through regardless of how long it takes for them to get on the same page and it adds to their chemistry and connection, which translates perfectly in the scenes where Jake is teaching Marlee how to be a good lover and readers will definitely be fanning themselves with how electric things are between Jake and Marlee from their very first lesson.

Two Ryder brothers down. One to Go, and with JD Hawkins at the helm for the final book, I’m excited to see where he takes his hero and heroine and how much he’s going to make them work for the ‘More’ that they deserve.

4 Poison Apples


His hand moves to the side of my cheek and his fingers stroke my jaw for a moment before drawing my face towards his. My breath catches when his lips play against mine. Then I feel the force of his mouth and the finesse of his lips as he parts mine and his tongue enters my mouth.

It feels like my first kiss, as he presses his hand against the back of my head, and runs his tongue along mine. Maybe this is my first kiss in some way because I feel something on the other end of his kiss that I haven’t known before: desire. His mouth is hot and hard and pliable at once and I feel that liquid sensation as my body molds into him, my nipples erect and chafing against my shirt. No one has kissed me like this before.

I guess he does want this after all.

He lies on top of me and I spread my legs to make room for him, to take on his weight and it feels so natural. His weight presses me onto the bed and I feel his firm muscles contracting against me, his erect cock pressing into my belly. I feel drunk on him again and can’t believe this is finally happening. I imagined kissing him, imagined our bodies together. There’s so much heat from our bodies that I want my clothes off. I break my mouth away from his, gasping. I’m all ready to untangle my robe and go back to the whole nude thing I was going to do before, but he stills.

“If we’re going to do this right, we need to do everything, one lesson at a time.”

“Like a dance class,” I say. “One skill at a time.” I like that idea. I’m good at learning choreography. I have excellent muscle memory. He runs a finger on my lips and I part them for him.

“You’re a good student,” he says. His voice is deeper than usual but also tinged with more than just that desire. It’s like—I don’t know, seduction or something. “I want to take my time with you.”

I feel safe and comfortable and horny all at once. That’s a much more reasonable combination of emotions, like the ones I read about. In my romance novels. Oh, shit. I realize-those books are about love, and this particular bit of feels always comes before someone falls in it.

Have I made a horrible mistake?
