      I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.This novella is a quick and easy paranormal read that ended too soon, as far as I'm concerned. I feel like I was just getting to the good part when all of a sudden, it was over. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy it because I did. I liked Brenna. She had this no-nonsense honesty about her. She did not try to fight her feelings for Dante. Instead, she was brave enough [...]

      My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars This was my second 1001 nights Novella by Julie Kenner that I have had the pleasure of reading.  You can read my review of Caress of Darkness here. This one follows the story of Dante.  He is haunted by the memory of his once thought true mate, Brenna.  Thirteen years have passed but the feelings continue to torment him.  He refused to watch her burn in the flames like he has witnessed his brothers once thought true mates succumb to. So he let her go.  You see [...]

      When you're made up of pure energy and exist forever, it's kind of tough to find a mate that can keep up with you. Dante Storm is a member of the Phoenix Brotherhood, a group of beings who are made up of pure energy and possess special abilities. He's watched his brothers pair up with their mates one by one, but Dante's situation isn't that simple. He willingly gave up Brenna Hart 13 years ago, cutting out his heart in the process. When he's tasked with locating the same brooch that private acqu [...]

      I’m a huge J Kenner fan, but I’ve never read any of her paranormal romances. Caress of Pleasure was the perfect introduction to her otherworldly works; I instantly loved the idea of the Phoenix Brotherhood – where they came from, who they are, and what they do. A phoenix rising from the ashes, being reborn, and given another chance at life is a perfect metaphor to live by because being able to right wrongs and reunite with those one loves can turn a lonely existence into one worth living.

      We return to Dark Pleasures to meet Dante. Like all of Julie's men, Dante is sexy as sin and stubborn to the point of frustration. When he walked away from Brenna 13 years ago he began the slow torture of them both. Now he needs her help in order to save one of his brothers from the Fuerie. The team is back together in order to save a brother they believe was lost to the void. Along with their mission, an old love is rekindled, but is it strong enough to survive the flames of the Phoenix Fire? P [...]

      An enjoyable second chance paranormal romance…This is the second novella in the Dark Pleasures series.Dante Storm is an immortal being in human form who thought he’d found the love of his eternal life thirteen years ago until he inadvertently saw something that changed his mind, so he left her with no explanation and an incorrect impression. He doesn’t believe that she would’ve survived facing the flames necessary to become his mate. Yet he’s never forgotten her, he’s restless with t [...]

      Leigh's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.75 StarsNormally I am a huge fan of Ms. Kenner. I love her alpha males and her down to earth heroines. I love the power plays and the stories and lives she crafts. And while I will typically branch out into the paranormal as a change of pace, and I liked Caress of Pleasure, it didn’t pack the emotional punch for me that I usually get from her books.Caress of Pleasure tells the story of Dante and Brenna, and how years before, Dante broke b [...]

      Who doesn't love a quick, sexy paranormal romance? If you are new to this author or the Dark Pleasures series, CARESS OF PLEASURE gives you a tasty bite of what to look forward to with Ms. Kenner's writing. Even if you aren't a big fan of the paranormal aspect of it, Ms. Kenner doesn't shove it down your throat, like some paranormal authors do. There is the perfect amount of paranormal in this beautifully done erotic romance.In this novella, I was immediately entranced with Dante and Brenna's he [...]

      Caress of Pleasure is book number 3.5 in author Julie Kenner’s Dark Pleasures series as well as the 5th novella in the 2015 1,001 Dark Nights line-up. I have loved the Dark Pleasures series from the beginning and filled with heat, action, and mystery, this novella was a wonderful addition.I always enjoy a story where former lovers who experienced a nasty breakup are reunited and put into a situation which forces them to be in one another’s company again. This was the case with Brenna and Dan [...]

      I don't usually read paranormal stories but I took a chance on this story and loved it! It's a story of love lost, misunderstandings and immortality.Dante Storm has only loved one woman, Brenna Hart. A future together was an impossibility because "He'd fallen for a mortal, after all. And after thirteen years, the memory of Brenna Hart still had the power to wreck him." Now in order to save one of his team, Merrick, Dante has to face the woman he left behind and ask for her help.Brenna Hart is a [...]

      3.5 StarsVery surprisingly, this is the first book by Ms. Kenner that I have read and even though I knew it was a novella, I feel cheated because it ended too soon, just at the point I wanted more.Thirteen years ago, Brenna and Dante had been in a relationship that ended when Dante walked away with no explanation to her. However, he walked away because he thought there was no future for them but has not forgotten her all this time. Now he is in need of Brenna’s professional expertise to acquir [...]

      I just love Brennaally. She is awesome. Another all-too-short story of the Phoenix Brotherhood, and I don't see any more on the horizon yet! That is so sad.Brenna and Mal's story totally gets to the heart of human/immortal issues when, after falling in love, Mal breaks off the relationship because, well, he's immortal and she isn't. You would think that's a problem, but in the end, it's not for Brenna! This girl is a fighter and when she sees the man who broke her heart all those years ago, her [...]

      A very short paranormal by the lovely J. Kenner. Honestly, let me start of by saying that I don't read paranormal books and before starting to read this book I had no idea that it was paranormal.There are two characters who knew each other once upon a time and fell in love. But then Dante left and now years later he's back and needs Brenna's help finding one of his brothers that went missing a long time ago.When they meet their chemistry is still there. In fact it's a lot stronger than before. S [...]

      Julie Kenner is known for melting panties with a few keyboard strokes, and Caress of Pleasure is no exception. A scintillating, scorching read full of passion and furious thoughts, this short story will satisfy your craving for hot paranormal encounters! Brenna is the kind of woman we all want to have in our corner, even if she's made some mistakes in the past and held onto some grudges for too long. Dante is the super hero we all want, the friend everyone needs, and the lover every woman dreams [...]

    17. Sofia Lazaridou on said:

      The romantic side of the story is quite satisfying. It was angst-y and it was interesting. The relationship between the two characters was established 13 years ago. Their happy ending was good and as I usually do, I wanted an epilogue for them even if it happened a short time later, i.e. two weeks or a month. The end, as it is in the book was quite nice.I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 because while (as I mentioned above) liked the romance part of the story, I found the action side lacking. [...]

      Review will be posted atbooks-n-kisses MBER OF HEARTS: 3REVIEW: This is my second novella in this series that I have read. And much like the first novella I read. The world is very interesting. I am intrigued by all that is going on. Dante and Brenna are very likeable characters. Yet, most of their problems could have been solved so many years ago if they had just talked to each other. But, then we wouldn’t have had a story. I know I can’t have my cake and eat it too. Or can I? So all and al [...]

      Caress of Pleasure is a short sexy read in the Dark Pleasures series. That would have to be my only complaint is that I hated that it was over so quickly. I wanted more of Brenna and Dante. Brenna and Dante were involved years ago until Dante left her breaking her heart. They reconnect as he needs her help to recover a broach. Their chemistry is still sizzling and they share some pretty hot moments together. I loved that Brenna was so confident and secure to admit her feelings for Dante and that [...]

      3.5 stars for Caress of Pleasure by Julie KennerThis was my 1st review for SUMMER"S BOOK BLOG, a try out of sorts. I am normally not a fan or paranormal. But I have to be honest i really liked this short novella.Dante broke the heart of Brenna. Unknowingly she led to her own pain. When they are thrown back together to save one of Dante's brothers of the Brotherhood all the old feelings come back but can either risk the pain again.It is worth a read.

    23. Stephanie on said:

      LOVED it! Dante and Brenna, were in love many years ago. But he walked away thinking that she was not his forever. Needing her now he finds her to help him on a mission. Even after all these years the love they had for each other has never faded. They each want to protect themselves from getting hurt again, but their connection is just too strong. I loved reading about these two finding their way back to each other. It was a nice, hot read!

      I wish this story had been lomger!! I need more of Dante and Brenna. They have a past but Dante discovers he and his brothers needs Brenna Hart's assistance. He has not forgotten about her the last 13 years nor has she forgotten him. They combust when they get near each other and it's sweet and steamy!

      Review on behalf of Obsessed by Books3.5 starsThis is a fast paced read, I was disappointed that there was not enough action, but the romance part was steamy and angsty. The book was easy to follow and a very quick read. At the end of the day this is a novella, so it it a quick read.
