Belong To You & Made For You Blog Tour Stop Review & Giveaway

Title: Belong To You (Cole, #1)
Genre: Romance
Age Group: Adult
Released: April 2013
My honeymoon was almost everything I dreamed it would be, a tropical paradise, turquoise water, romantic walks on the beach, and loads and loads of mind shattering sex. The only thing missing was the groom.

After seven years of coasting through a relationship with Michael, my senses were numb. A week of passion with a stranger was just what I needed to clear my head and take back control of my life. But how do you move on when the man that was only supposed to be a fling somehow seeps into your soul and steals your heart?
Sydney is going on her dream honeymoon to Hawaii.  Problem?  There's no groom.  After coasting through life for the past 7 years with her fiance Michael she finally decides that she needs more out of life.  Having given up her love for singing and slowly losing more of herself she's finally had enough.  Final nail in the coffin?  When she finds his secretary on her knees in his office.  So Sydney finds herself on a plan going on a romantic honeymoon with her best friend Sienna.

Sienna wants Sydney to let lose and have the time of her life.  While reluctant to let lose and have a good time she meets Jack who literally at their first meeting is up in her personal space.  He proposes to her that they make the most of their week and enjoy their time together limited to only 10 personal questions about one another.  So begins the game of sex and questions.  But what starts out as a game of fun quickly starts to become more when Sydney starts to feel more for Jack in a matter of days than she felt for Michael in the past 7 years.  She renews her love for singing while on vacation and feels like she's finally started to rediscover herself.

When the week is up, Sydney doesn't want to let go and leave but she gets on the plan and leaves to return to New York where she's recently relocated to to be closer to Sienna but she gets on the plane a little sad that she's let Jack get away.

Sydney loves her job working at one of the Heston Hotel's lounge as a singer.  She gets to do what she loves doing and enjoys every second of it.  She tries to put Jack behind her as much as she can, but she can't seem to forget him.  By chance the owner of the Heston hotel wants to hear Sydney sing, so she puts on the performance of a lifetime impressing the owner and landing a job for the following weekend for the hotel.  To her there's something oddly familiar about the owner she can't put her finger on it.  It's not until the following weekend after she's done performing that she runs straight into Jack backstage and he hurries to whisk her away from his father and his date for the night and to his apartment which just so happens to be the penthouse suite in another hotel.

Jack hasn't had a girlfriend since he was sixteen and Sydney just ended a bad relationship with her fiance Michael.  Can they pull through and learn to trust one another and will their feelings be enough to survive all the tests along the way?  When Jack reveals his business ventures to Sydney outside of the hotel chain he owns with his father, Sydney can't decide if she can handle it, add in his jealous ex-lover and employee Jenna, and you have the recipe for the jealousy and self doubt.  Sydney finds herself falling even more for Jack, and when she's given the opportunity she's been waiting hoping for will she be able to leave Jack behind to chase her dreams?

I loved Jack.  He's dominating behind closed doors but he's also so sweet and loving every other time, always putting her needs before his.  I loved the first part of this story it was sexy, it was hot, and it was steamy!  4.5 stars!

***This is part two of this series.  For the enjoyment of this series you will need to read book 1 first***

Sydney and Sienna's dreams are coming true.  They finally get to go on tour with Double Strife who happen to be friends of theirs, Kyle and Justin.  They knew Kyle and Justin before they made it big and got picked up to do a European tour and as much as she is reluctant to go and leave Jack behind Sydney goes on tour with a schedule so she can still see Jack.

Life on the read is difficult for both Sydney and Jack.  They both miss one another a great deal and there's jealousy to be had on both sides between Sienna the porn queen and Justin the rock star who happened to have feelings for Sydney years ago and hasn't seemed to get over his feelings for her after all this time.  This book is a lot more serious than the first book and I don't mean that in a bad way.  As their feelings for one another grow, so does the feelings of jealousy and doubt that cloud them at every turn.  But one thing is clear, whenever Jack comes to visit it's clear the passion between them as not died and he tries to keep in touch as much as possible.

While on break in New York from living her dreams, tragedy strikes Jack and brings their relationship to it's knees especially when Sydney must return to finish out her tour and leave Jack alone to deal with the aftermath of the tragedy.  But when you are meant to be with one another, love always has a way of pulling through.  Will that be the case for Sydney and Jack?  You'll have to read this story to find out.

I loved this series it went from playful to downright serious heavy romance all the while keeping the sex on high and believe me there's plenty of that to keep you going and reading.  This series was HOTT and made me wonder where Vi has been hiding all these months!  I will definitely be reading more of Vi's work in the future and I loved this book more than the first one, 5 stars!
