Release+Review-Claimed-Celeste Jones

Author – Celeste Jones
Release date – September 18


Sometimes it takes two men to replace the love of your life.

Done mourning her lost love, Cassie sets off on a journey to find her future. Little did she suspect that the path to her future would start when she ran her car into a ditch.

Twin brothers Luke and Aidan are Eagle Canyon bred through and through, and that means they are looking for one woman to share their lives … and their bed.

Cassie allows herself one night with the two handsome cowboys.

But, after one night, will she be able to leave?

Not if Luke and Aidan have anything to say about it.

Our Review:

Hot, quick read that leaves you wanting more! It's a standalone novel that is the first in a series. I've never read anything by this author and this was a great introduction to her books. We follow a widow on a path to re-disCanyonring herself on a journey with a hidden agenda. She stumbles into Eagle Canyon and is immersed in a new setting and a way to heal.

This is a fascinating tale of a little place called Eagle Canyon that is rich in Native American history and legend. It limits outside influence with no public wifi...And all the couples are twin brothers with a female spouse. This is a story of Cassie finding a new normal, a new path, and new love. I enjoyed the rich history of the town and idea of limiting smartphone use, though I'm hesitant to know if it'd work.

I loved Cassie. She's a heartbroken young widow, trying to finish a task, and figure out her life. She's ready for new adventures, but keeps her past to herself. Not quite shy, but reserved and cautious. Stumbling into town, she encounters dark and handsome Luke. He's a stoic man of action and feels the sizzle right away. His twin Aiden is the town doctor, the light and more worldly version. He too feels the pull of the town's special historical magic on their trio.

The three have chemistry and pheromones in abundance. They can't keep their hands off each other! Who could blame Cassie when Aiden and Luke are described in such exotic and imaginative ways! Handsome doesn't even begin to scratch their surface. They fall into their relationship quickly and with so many sparks. I don't love that type of relationship, but despite that fastness, it seems to work for Eagle Canyon.

Claimed is a super fast read that draws you in to amazing characters, a setting with rich history, and well written love scenes. I liked the easy to follow plot, which did have the slight mystery of why Cassie was traveling in that area. But even the town had great depth and served a special purpose for the story. And despite quite a few differences from the “real” world, the world of Eagle Canyon works well and gives a happy ending.

Anyone in need of quick read that will get their libido going, this is the book you need! But it's more than that...the well written characters leave you wanting more and very interested in what books come next in the series.

“My brain and libido could not process that much testosterone in a confined space.”
“If there was any good news in all of this, I had at least found out my sex drive had moved out of neutral. Frankly, I'd thought it might even have been in reverse for the last few years.”
“ was hard to believe that on a regular old Wednesday my brother would randomly find the woman who was destined to be ours.”
“Tonight, just for this one night, I was going to live out every fantasy I'd ever had and probably a few I hadn't thought of yet.”

Excerpt 1

A large black truck hummed into the lot and parked in front of me. Luke practically jumped out before it came to a complete stop. "Is everything okay? Is there something wrong with your hotel room? Do you need me to speak to the manager?  Why are you outside?"
Aidan exited the driver's side and greeted me a little more cordially, then turned to his brother. "Maybe she was just excited to see us."
If I hadn't been excited to see them before, I certainly was now. Good heavens, but they were sexy. Crisp shirts, tight jeans and well-worn boots. I felt my nipples harden under my blouse and forced myself not to look down to see if they were announcing my arousal to the world.
"You look beautiful, Cassie," Luke said, taking my hand and leading me to the passenger side of the truck. He assisted me up into the seat, his hand brushing along my hip as he made sure I got into the truck safely. Once I settled in the middle of the seat, Aidan reached across and buckled me in. Seemed to be a family trait with these two, but I can't say I minded.
Luke took his place to my right and seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time getting his own seat belt fastened. I'm not sure if he was fumbling or just enjoyed the fact that the latch for his seat belt was next to my rear end, and his fingers seemed to spend a fair amount of time touching my ass.
We hadn't even gotten out of the parking lot and I was aching with sexual need. I took a deep breath and quickly started talking about anything but my womanly desires. 
"Before we go to dinner, would it be possible to go someplace where I can get Wi-Fi service? I can't seem to get a signal and my friend, Ellie, is going to be worried if she doesn't hear from me. I’d just like to be able to send her a quick email," I said, staring straight ahead focusing on the town of Eagle Canyon. With one sexy brother on either side of me, I wasn't sure where to look and forward seemed safest. The effect they had on me was dangerous.  I was in way over my head.
"Absolutely," Luke said, resting his hand on my knee.
"We want you to be able to tell your friend that you are absolutely safe," Aidan said, dropping his hand to cover my other knee.
My interest in the sights outside the windshield halted and I stared at their two hands, one dark, the other fair, covering my knees. If I'd worn jeans instead of a skirt, at least there'd be a barrier between their hot palms and my weak flesh, though I'd imagine that the heat these two radiated would have melted Kevlar.
"I-is this a d-date?" my voice squeaked.
Both hands squeezed my knees, sending a pulse of need up my thighs. "Oh, this is so much more than a date," Luke whispered in my ear.
"With b-both of you?"
We stopped for a traffic light and Aidan slipped his hand under my skirt and his fingertip flirted with the edge of my panties. "That's how it works here in Eagle Canyon."
"Works in Eagle Canyon?" I was so distracted by what their hands were doing to me, I must not have heard him correctly.
The light turned green and Aidan removed his hand. A small whimper escaped my mouth at the absence of his touch.
Luke's hand slipped under my skirt in place of his brother's. "You see, Cassie," Luke's voice was a husky whisper, "when two men care for a woman, her needs are always met. While Aidan makes sure we get to our destination safely, I can make sure you are properly attended to."
"In our community," Aidan added, not taking his eyes from the road, "women are cherished. Properly protecting and caring for a woman is a job so important that not just one man can do it."
Luke's fingers worked their way between my thighs and pushed the crotch of my panties to the side. "Not just two men to protect and care for you, but two men to provide for your needs, all of your needs." As if what he was trying to say might not have been clear, his thumb rubbed across my clit while his index finger slipped into my embarrassingly moist pussy.
"Oh, Aidan, she is so wet."
We stopped at the only other traffic light in town. Aidan put the truck in park and reached over to push my skirt up and we watched Luke finger fuck me. His long dark fingers moved in and out of my pussy. "Does that feel good, little girl?" Aidan asked.
My eyes met his and I could see they had gone from sky blue to a deep gray with desire. We all knew the answer to his question, but I said it anyway. The longing inside me grew more intense. "Yes. It feels… wonderful."
"Good girl," he said and went back to the task of delivering us to our destination. I was glad he was driving and not me. I would have ended up in the ditch again.
Luke continued to torment my pussy with his fingers and pressed my clit with his thumb.I gripped the edge of the seat with my hands, tremors cascading through my limbs. The scent of my arousal wafting through the cab of the truck. 
While I was in the throes of a building orgasm, the two of them talked about me as though I wasn't even there.
"I told you she was perfect for us," Luke said.
"I know. And so responsive," Aidan added. "I can't wait to get her between us."
Between us? Oh god.
