No Trespassing by K.D. Robichaux
Standalone Contemporary Romance
Millionaires, rock stars, motorcycles, stepbrothers, teachers, Doms, tattooists, porn stars, cops, firemen, sports stars… we’ve read them and loved them. But when something different comes along, it’s like a breath of fresh air. I had such a great time reading No Trespassing by KD Robichaux. She is a new author to me, and she just happened to catch me online and asked be to review her book. It’s a cross between Indiana Jones and a hot and slightly cheesy instalove. An easy and fun read, I blew off a few responsibilities to read it, and even snuck in a few pages at a concert.
Emmy is a young wanna-be archeologist who runs an adventure blog. She grew up with very well known parents who met making a famous discovery in the Egyptian pyramids. Emmy is more comfortable underground, alone in a room of bones, than in a public setting. She has been an introverted nerd her whole life, and her only focus has been to get in a good site and make a discovery. But Dean Savageman, the host of the most popular show on the Adventure Channel always gets there and uses his clout to get in right before her.
Emmy HATES the gorgeous archeologist with every ounce of her being. Yet she has the adventure channel on her TV 24/7 and has never missed an episode of his show, because he is doing everything she ever dreamed of. Personally, I loved Emmy. She is totally a girly girl, despite being this cool archeologist, and she had some really cute inner thoughts. Her only friends are her roommate and fellow nerd, and a gay couple she has only met online. I love her relationship with them. And I totally related to this thought:
“I message Calvin back, using the same butterfly filter. Can this thing just follow me around everywhere I go?”
Aaah, if we could only all wear filters in real life? But I digress. Even though Emmy knows Dean is hot, and she has gone to bed to his voice for 2 years, she really and truly hates Mr. Savageman. So when she gets trapped in catacombs underneath New Orleans with the man, she lets him know how she feels in no uncertain terms.
“You site-stealing, dream-crushing, arrogant bag of dick tips!”
Dean has seen her at his sites. He could tell she wasn’t a groupie, but she always disappeared. He started to think she might be a ghost, but she was a ghost he had a hell of a lot of fantasies about.
As they are forced to work together to possibly make a monumental discovery, Emmy realizes he’s not such a dick.
“He literally offered me the shirt off his back.”
In fact, the sexual tension is getting super thick. So when he has to pick her up on his shoulders to see something, she gets a little worried.
“Please, help a sistah out and don’t let me soak the man’s neck. No wetty right now, okay? Pretty please?”
Teehee. She was so cute and clumsy, yet so smart. He was so handsome, commanding and in control. And when they finally gave in…damn. He was HOT.
“This pussy is mine. From now on, I’m the only one who gets to touch it. If it needs something, it’ll get it from me and me alone. Does it need something, Em?”
- Totally unusual, unique storyline.
- I learned some stuff.
- Made me crave even more (I wish it were a series somehow, which I usually don’t wish)
- I felt like I was in an Indiana Jones movie.
- The sex was hot (if you don’t really think about where they are doing it).
- It was a quick, easy, fairly angst-free book.
- How there is no question in your mind that these two were supposed to be together.
Dislikes: (not really dislikes, just things I didn’t love)
- The time skip. Give me the angst!
- I would have liked some more booby traps or danger (or rats?), for it to have been a little more challenging.
- It got a little cheesy sometimes. I don’t mind insta-love (it happened to me!) but they got a little corny expressing that love within hours.
- I didn’t know what was real and researched about the history and the catacombs, and what was made up for the book.
