I almost don't even know what to say about this book, other than you should read it right now if you're a fan of erotica or erotic romance. It is quite simply electric, and maybe the most fun you will have reading a book this year. This is the second book in Ms. McGier's Minnesota Romances series - it uses the setting of the first book as a jumping off point, but things diverge quickly from there. Raul and Veronica's story in the first book was beautiful, heartfelt, and relatively straightforward - Alex and Dmitri's story is heartfelt, but it is anything but straightforward. Alex is a sex maniac, hard-drinking biker queen who also happens to be a high-powered executive, and Dmitri is a supremely confident, mysterious Russian stranger who initially seeks her out to 'teach her a lesson' as a favor to a friend. The sparks fly from their explosive first encounter, and things just keep ramping up from there as they get more and more hooked on one another. She doesn't believe one man can ever satisfy her, and he knows he can be everything she needs. Dmitri never tries to change her to get his way, he simply demonstrates to her what he knows to be true in some of the hottest sex scenes I've read, and with such confidence that I had to laugh out loud more than once at his sheer balls. Their relationship is a loud, chaotic, incredibly sexy thrill ride that will keep you turning 'just one more page' way into the night. And as if that was not enough, the pace of the second half is dialed up even more as someone starts coming after Alex's gang, leading to some surprisingly tense and emotional scenes that draw you even further into the story. Ms. McGier's Minnesota Romance series continues to be just amazing with this incredibly spicy second chapter. I can't wait to see what's next!

ONLY ONE MAN WILL DO was a quick and fast paced read. It held my interest from the beginning even though I'm not usually a fan of such steamy books since they take me out of my comfort zone. This book drew me in since there was a story being told and the sex enhanced the storytelling. The main characters had a depth to them and it was interesting to get to know them a little at a time. There were multiple story lines especially since Alexandra is both a business woman, she heads the family company, and a biker queen who has her own gang. The gang is definitely a kinky group that look to her as their leader and there are a couple of sweethearts thrown in.
When a Russian goes to her office to give her a message neither one is ready for the heat they generate. From there things get even hotter since they are both alpha types. Due to her upbringing she only needs a man to fill her needs - or so she thinks. He wants to be the last man she'll ever need. How will that work between them since they both have such strong personalities? There's a little bit of a mystery thrown in that was fairly easy to solve. There's definitely romance, lots of drinking, swearing, food, bike rides and more, crimes committed, injuries and death along with loving and ultimately love. There's a happily ever after and nice closure. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, HER LAST RESORT.
Ms. McGier takes me out of my comfort zone but when the story draws me in, I'm all in. I look forward to reading more of her books.
