Judy, dubbed Blue by her friends, is a voluptuous thirty-one year old woman longing for a love of her own. Even more frustrating than her dissatisfaction with her work and the unwanted attention her body garners is always coming in second with the opposite sex. 

Bond, her best friend and lover, helps Blue stay sane and sexually satisfied, but she knows her place. Their secret relationship leaves Blue hungry to have a man she can call her own. 

When she finally succumbs to Cat’s artful needle for her first tattoo, she crosses paths with Tate. The towering, tattooed, motorcycle riding, American Indian fires off all her warnings signs, but she finds herself drawn to him against her own self-preservation. 

Thankfully, Blue’s close-knit group of friends help to keep her grounded, as does the women’s group she attends weekly, but she still finds herself wanting and needing more. 

Will Blue ever find the love she needs and deserves or will she forever come in second? Read her sexy story of friendship and love to find out.

"Everywhere he touched, the heat of his caress lingered. His gaze held me captive, dissolving my will and restraint. With my nipples clasped between his fingers, he pinched and tugged. 'I want to hurt you,' he grunted."

Andrea's Review
*ARC received in return for an honest review

I love Blakely Bennett's work. Apart from the amazing HOT sex scenes she creates that just burn up your kindle, Blakely has the knack of bringing us such wonderully broken, flawed characters to get to grips with who play with your emotions and embed themselves deep within your heart. 

Blue Persuasion is jam packed with hot, kinky sex and enough emotion to give you a book hangover for a fortnight...perfect!! 

This has to be my favourite of the series so far.

Although I loved Tate and all of his flaws & insecurities it was Blue that won me over. I'd not really noticed her in the previous books but in Blue Persuasion she comes into her own. She makes herself noticed and refuses go away. I loved her so much and my heart broke for her. For what she endured in her younger years and, in the way she saw herself and how she thought others perceived her. She was so used to being looked at, wanted, for her assests, her body that she was convinced she didn't deserve love, always in putting others happiness before hers. She just wanted to feel loved for herself and not as a stop gap until something or someone else came along. She was fed up with men looking at her and seeing her as a body and not as a person. 

This did make me feel frustrated with Blue, though. I wanted to shake her by the shoulders and tell her to stop allowing herself to be placed second best, to put herself out there and put herself first! Everyone she loved seemed to love her but not fully, not for her, well that's what Blue thought anyway. Bond loved her in his way but he was still holding out for Jacqs. All she wanted was someone to say "I love you" and mean it wholeheartedly. She had a huge heart that was full of love but no one seemed to want it unconditionally and that's what Blue wanted, unconditional love. 

This sums up Blue and made my heart ache for her.
"The forever bookmark, a holding place for someone else." -Blue

Enter Tate. Tate! *sighs* Tate was a huge hunk of an American Indian who had me swooning, man was he hot?!
Tate comes along and suddenly Blue realises he's someone worth fighting for and boy, does she need to fight for him? Tate has been betrayed in the worst way and tells Blue that although he wants her there will never be anything deep and meaningful, lasting between them. 
The more time they spend together the more Blue falls for him. Will Tate realise how much Blue means to him and tell her or will continue to push  her away until it's too late? 

I loved the chemistry between Blue and Tate, they nearly burned themselves off my kindle they were so hot! There were times I was shouting at my kindle, to Blue, not to go there and to Tate, to get a grip and just tell Blue how he felt. 

Blue Persuasion left me with a huge book hangover and I felt like I'd been put through the wringer, emotionally. I love this book so much and can't wait for my next fix from this group of friends. Blakey thank you for such a beautiful and emotional story!

Do yourself a favour and go 1-click Blue Persuasion today, I can't recommend it highly enough!!
