Genevieve Bujold has never gotten over her attraction to Sean Kennedy. Neither time nor one dead husband has done anything to diminish the feelings she has for Sean, and even though she is a widow, and has been for three years, Genny is unsure if she is able to allow Sean back into her heart, life, and her bed.  When her house burns down and Genny returns to the only place she can to spend the night, she finds Sean there as well.  Amidst the worse snow storm of the century Genny and Sean intimately explore their burgeoning feelings for each other while shutting out the rest of the world. Real life interrupts more than once, however, and it seems that Genny has an enemy – one that does not want her to find out the circumstances of her husband’s death. 

Sean Kennedy has loved Genny Bujold since the first moment he saw her almost four years ago. The COO of Sauren-Kennedy Solutions, Sean has watched and waited and wondered why, even after she became a widow, she refused any contact with him.  Three years ago, she and Sean made the sheets come alive at the suggestion of her husband, and though Sean regrets how the ménage happened, he doesn’t regret the emotions Genny made – and still makes – him feel.  When she interrupts him by coming to the penthouse in order to spend the night, Sean once more realizes that the love he has for Genny continues to burn in his heart – even if she did kill her husband. 


Sean and Genny have a lot to work out in RELEASE.  Most of all, they have to get to the bottom of their feelings for each other.  Sean makes Genny feel things she is almost afraid of – she is an independent woman and her need to submit to Sean in the bedroom has her head spinning.  The words “unwavering loyalty” come to mind when I think of Sean.  He is like an open book when it comes to the woman he loves – you can tell his feelings with every glance, touch, and kiss that he gives Genny.  He wears his heart on his sleeve and his love is unconditional.  Sean loved her before her husband died, and he loves her now.  Genny is a bit harder to figure out – not because this is a bad thing – but because as a woman, she keeps her emotions closer to her heart and not as ‘out there’ as Sean.  The fact that she loved Sean before her husband passed away makes Genny relive over and over the night they spent exploring each other, but it hasn’t made her stop loving him. 


The suspense is high in RELEASE.  Someone doesn’t want Genny or Sean to find out what is in her dead husband’s possessions – possessions that Genny has no idea about even though evidence points differently.  Add in sultry hot love scenes dominant in nature, as well as fascinating to see, unfold and RELEASE is a read worthy of any keeper shelf.  Beth Kery has successfully transitioned from digital author to mainstream print, and the results are fabulous: well written stories that will charm, captivate and keep you on the edge of your seat.  Try not to fall in love with Sean and Genny’s story – I dare you!
