Hers by Dawn Robertson ~ Blog Tour


I am weak.
I am lonely.
I am a slut.
I am strong.
I am Dominant.
I am independent.
I am Seven James.

My entire life, no one has wanted me, and that was fine, because I sure as shit didn't need anyone else. Blah, Blah Blah, insert sad story here about negligent parents, and shitty siblings, and you have my life story in a nut shell. When my college boyfriend dumped me, it was just icing on the cake. Five years, and a booming career later I am here to collect my revenge.

That was until a delicious plaything walked into the kink club I frequent, and rocked my typically un-rockable world. Causing me to break the one rule I have lived by since Daniel Alexander walked out of my life, never have sex with the same person twice. Ever.

Warning!!!! Hers contains sexually explicit situations that may be uncomfortable for some. These include FF, FMF, and MFM interactions.


He sits across from me with a smug grin on his face, eating bite after bite of his salmon. I push the chicken parm around on my plate with absolutely no appetite. Still within the confines of our luxurious suite, we’ve opted for a room service-catered evening. After the brain beating I took in the shower, I had no desire to leave my bathroom, let alone face the world.

“You really aren't going to talk to me?” he questions, reaching for a glass of red wine sitting in front of him on the table. As the glass meets his lips, I finally decide to give in.

“What is there to talk about, Levi?”

The fact is, we have the most fucked up relationship on planet Earth. I don't want to want him, but I do. He wants more than I will ever be able to give him, or at least I think he does. And

we’re forced to work together in the most uncomfortable situation ever.

During the day, we opened the door for some kind of friendship, as I offered to help him fend off the claws of his ex-wife. I, Seven Fucking James, was helping a guy, whom I’m fucking, fend off his ex-wife. Ex. Wife. I might as well start waving a little white flag in surrender, because no matter the outcome, it was going to be downright fucking bad.

“What happened earlier?” His voice drips with sarcasm, as I try not to lunge across the table and strangle him to death. I’m pretty damn close.

“Oh, you mean when you came into my shower and busted a load on my face without letting me return the favor?” I try to brush it off like his actions don't bother me in the least, but it’s clear that he can see right through me.

“Seven, I don't know what kind of game we’re playing. But I am kind of over the game portion of things.” He’s trying to take charge of the situation, and in a way, it’s sort of cute.

“What game, Levi? I told you it was a one-night thing. You wouldn't leave it at that. So I tried to push you away with the threesome with another guy. The only thing that did was drive you closer. I don't know what else to do to push you away. I don't do whatever this is.” I wave between us with my fork, before tossing it down onto the plate in front of me and pushing my chair out. “We have to work together for this week, Levi. Please, don't make this any more uncomfortable than it is already going to be.” I stand on shaky legs, praying he can't tell my body is blatantly betraying the tough front I’m putting on. My bare feet pad down the hardwood floor toward the bedroom.

I hear his chair push out from the table, and footsteps in the distance, but I don't look back to see where they lead.

“Seven,” he speaks, waiting for a response. I pause outside of my door, hand on the knob. I turn toward him, locking gazes and he speaks. “Just give it a chance. A fucking chance. That is all I am asking you for.”

I turn, facing the bedroom door. “I’ll think about it.” I close the door behind me. Fuck.


4 Stars

I honestly had no clue what to expect when I started this book but let me tell you-it didn't disappoint!

Seven James has had a crazy life. Having parents and a brother that never wanted her and made her feel unloved she's lived her life protecting herself. She has only opened her heart up to one man and in return he broke her. Since then she's lived her life trying to take over the world. She's a fierce business woman, Dominant, uses sex to block out her insecurities, and has only had one friend her entire life. When someone unexpected enters her life she doesn't know how to handle it. Doesn't know if she wants to be wanted. Doesn't know how to be loved.
Hers had so many different things going on it constantly kept your head spinning. Seven had so many things going on: running a business, revenge on her ex, being a best friend and part time lover to her best friend, Star, getting caught up in a forbidden relationship at work, and hiding her insecurities from the outside world. There were multiple story lines that it almost became too much, but it definitely leads up to the next book for Dawn Robertson. 
What I loved in this book was how it kept you on your toes. Just when you think you know what's coming-the unexpected happens. I can truly say this book wasn't predictable at all. There were a ton of hot steamy scenes that went anywhere from regular guy on girl to threesomes and even talk of foursomes-it definitely kept your blood...flowing. I loved, also, how Levi never gave up on her. Throughout ups, downs, insecurities, and egos, he was there and made sure she always knew it. My only complaint is that sometimes there was TOO much story line. So many players and so much drama made it a bit overwhelming. 
Overall this book was definitely a good read and recommended to everyone!
