My Thoughts - Story When Ms. McDonald asked me to host this release tour along with reading and reviewing this series, I jumped on the chance. I had the pleasure of reading some of her other works and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this! Buttttt……I’m not that big of an erotica fan. If you could take out all the sex scenes and just give me the sexual tension of dealing with the work up…I would be happy. Yes, I am one of those terrible readers who skim over the sex scenes… Not this time though…Ms. McDonald did a fantastic job with both Indulgence and Satisfaction. In fact, right before I read Satisfaction, I re-read Indulgence again (and you NEVER see me rereading a book). Why? Cause I can’t get enough of her characters. Her writing is so spot on that it seems her characters are multi-dimensional and come right off of the pages! I was instantly sucked into Brix and his shyness. He was definitely not your typical alpha character and I found myself hooked – like I mean…REALLY HOOKED on this guy! Another thing I absolutely loved about this book is having Addison and Sebastian back in this story --- which I have to stress that it is important for you to read Indulgence first.

I want more classy kink, more anonymous trysts, more chance to indulge in something that feels a little forbidden—and does it while being sexy, fun and touching. (Not the dirty touching, y'all. Minds out of the gutter!) Satisfaction was satisfying in a very real way. It was a quick read—TBH, I wish it were a bit longer, because I feel like there's more story for Brix and his bombshell—and an incredibly enjoyable one. I loved seeing Brix, getting to know him and his… quirks, his shyness, his openness. I loved the little twist. I loved the friendships, and would happily read more about Amber and Autumn and Mercy and Gable. I loved seeing Bass and Red again, seeing things from another angle. I loved… everything, pretty much. Do I still have questions? Yes. I do. And I desperately want answers, which means I'm going to have to not-so-subtly implore Jeanne McDonald to write more in the Taking Chances series. Because it's pretty simple really—I want more of this series, and I want it now. The house was what fairy tales were made of. Assuming those fairy tales were elaborate pornos. ~ 4.5 STARS ~

    I really wish I had read the first book of this series because I was totally lost in here, but that is ok because I really enjoyed this book. The characters were very well written and likeable, well except maybe Junior for most of the book. The storyline was well written and a bit different in that the hot male lead is a few years younger that the smart hottie he is after. That was a nice twist. I loved these two characters so much.

    Giving Brix the love he deserves I fell in love with Brix in Indulgence, and thought that he needed to find the woman of his dreams. I'm so happy that he did in this book. Aspen is the world wind that he needed for him to realize and act on what he can bring to a relationship. Some girls love the boy-next-door type, who can be sexy and hot at the same time. I know I do, and Brix is all that and more.

    The prologue starts off with a scene from book 1 and told by Brix's POV. Love seeing it from the other side. My heart was crushed when I learned it wasn't the continuing story of Addison and Sebastian, but that's ok cause Brix's story was just as good. The Plus is we got to see Addison and Sebastian throughout the book though since Brix not only attends the Indulgence party again this year, but him and Addison are friends.

The Plus is we got to see Addison and Sebastian throughout the book though since Brix not only attends the Indulgence party again this year, but him and Addison are friends. Brix met the women of his dreams and he doesn't even know her name. Wow, this was intense and kept you wanting to know if he would ever find her again. The humor of the 80's throwback was awesome and epic. If you can't find the girl, what better way to relieve a little stress. No, not yoga, but attending the epic party-Indulgence again. You not only get hot scenes, you get to see a twist that none of us seen coming when we see who is attending the party and what this means for Brix. Holy smokes, have Mercy on your blood pressure when the name is revealed. You might just want to go to Aspen, CO to cool off with this explosion. Not only do you love the main characters, you love the secondary characters and hope that we get to see a story on Autumn or Amber. I will say that each book can be read as a standalone or if you read this book first you can go back to read book 1. It will just give you a more insight to how close Brix and Addison really are and how Addison and Sebastian became. I am still holding out hope that we get a book again on Addison and Sebastian. Yes, we know they are together, but there is more to tell especially with the publicity that occurs with them. I can honestly say that there is still a story for Brix and the mystery women as well. I believe Flex and Hunter would agree with us, don't you think? Who are these people you say, well wouldn't you like to know? You will have to attend the Indulgence party to find out. Satisfaction=Yes, yet again. Anxiously, waiting to see what occurs next in this series.

If you have read book 1, which you MUST read before Satisfaction, you will be happy to know that we do get to see how Addison and Bass fair through the eyes of Brix. Brix surprised me as a lead. He is not the typical Alpha male I generally go for, but he won me over with his honesty and sincerity. His leading lady loves to be in control, but they later find a good balance. The NYE party at Indulgence is on, a year after we met Addison in book 1. More "no holds barred" sex is taking place and more drama is brewing! What I really enjoy with this series is although there are plenty of sex scenes, they are written in a way that isn't always crass and dirty. There is beautiful, almost poetic scenes that elevate the story to being more than a sexy read. "Slow and steady I ghosted my lips down her neck, along her collarbone, and over those pert peaks that demanded my attention....To my pleasure, her already hard nipples grew harder with each pass, and the most delicious shiver rippled along her body as I blew across her damp, heated skin." There are a number of stories set up in this addition to the series, and I look forward to reading more about this group of characters.

Eek I was so happy to see Brix get his own story after reading Indulgence. I devoured this story in a day. I couldn't put it down and needed to know what happens next. I enjoyed seeing the characters we fell in love with in the first book in the series return though at time I wanted to smack them for their interfering with Brix. I was cheering for Brix when he finally stood up for himself. Watching him grow and become a confident man in more ways than one was refreshing - it's not often I read a romance where the male is the one with confidence issues. Again Jeanne has delved into the world of erotica and knocked it out of the park! 5 Stars for Satisfaction by Jeanne McDonald *** Reviewed for Sweet & Spicy Reads - ARC provided for a honest review ***

He sees black hair with purple streaks and hopes it’s the woman who got away, but he’s not found her after searching for months. Planning to avoid the party this year, Brix is coerced into attending by his friend, Addison. But is the reality of Indulgence better or worse than the fantasy Brix has created in his mind—especially when his past collides with his fantasy. I really wanted to love this book. I loved the brief snippet of Brix and his story in Indulgence. I was so looking forward to Brix’s turn to indulge in the fantasy created by the New Year’s Eve party. Oh, don’t get me wrong… he sure as hell does indulge and it’s HOT and SEXY. But there was something missing…something that wasn’t quite finished about Brix’s story. I’m hoping there’s more about Brix in upcoming books because there’s more to Brix and his happily ever after. ~ Missy, 4 stars

The roller coaster ride Ms. McDonald took me on after these two get properly introduced was filled with angst and frustration (and a little bit of heart break too) but it was also very fun to watch. I loved these characters. A LOT. And cannot wait to see where the TAKING CHANCES adventure leads us to next! Thanks so much to this author for allowing me to read and review. You need this book in your life. Brix is win - all the way.

    Fast paced, hot and sexy followup to Indulgence. Brix and his Bombshell fire up the pages in this story about intense, soul shaking connections and learning to let go of inhibitions. The series is called "Taking Chances" for a reason. Brix takes a chance with a nameless woman, turning over his pleasure and his heart to her. In the end, the payoff is great. An unconventional story, told from a mans POV, with a HEA that suits the characters and wraps up the story in a beautiful, red satin bow.

    OMG! This book was so hot and steamy. I so need to read Indulgence (Book1) after reading this. Loved these characters and really enjoyed Brix's story. Brix meets a mystery lady at a party, only to have her vanish without a trace. He can't get her out of his mind and can't find out who she was... When he's invited to Indulgence, he excepts thinking it will help get her out of his mind. Only to find her again when he least expects it..

I was bouncing up and down with giddiness when I found out we would receive another installment of the Taking Chances Series! And I do not know about you boys and girls but I SQUEALED when I found out BRIX would have his own book!!! Our shy, awkward, sex god got his own book! {sighs dreamily} I mean who did not want more of BRIX Johnson after book one! I loved this man so much! He is not your typical male lead. Yes, Brix is hot as sin and has women falling all over themselves to get his attention. But this man has a vulnerable side and is a little insecure with himself and it makes you want to hug him and never let him go. Brix met his dream girl and lost her a few months back, only to bump into his little dominate bombshell again. This girl is funny, hot, and can command a room like she owns it. I love how she taught Brix how to really explore his sexuality with her. She opened him up to a whole new world he would have only fantasize about. One of my favorite scenes is when Brix is at Indulgence and his alter persona takes over. When this sweet, sweet man turns into a sexy beast... Well, I could not get enough of him!! He was HOT HOT HOT!! I am talking smoking HOT with a side of OH. MY. GOD. can I have him! Kind of hot! Here are a few quotes that I loved when I was reading! “The predatory gleam in her eyes caused my heart and cock to jump. I gulped and nodded. “Yes,” I gasped. “Yes, mistress,” she corrected. I didn’t think, I simply reacted. “Yes, mistress. But what about all the punishment stuff you read about in books?” ⬆ Oh!! Brix met a mistress!! Hell hot sexy times! ⬇ “Hard or soft limit?”“Hard,” I admitted. “Does that include you fucking my ass?” My eyes grew wide with her bluntness, yet, just as I had at the wedding, I found her boldness refreshing. “No. Just me, mistress.”“As you wish, but I will tell you that anal stimulation is quite satisfying for men. The orgasm is unlike anything you have ever experienced.” Let's just say Brix gets a little cocky in his birthday suit! "That's Right, sweetheart. I'm flirting with you." <-- Naked Brix can flirt with me all damn day!!

Can Brix and this mystery woman come together and create a future? Or will he walk away from it all?

Everyone at Indulgence must follow the rules including wearing a mask but Brix knows this is his woman. When he walks away this time he didn't feel bad. Then she walks up to the bar and he realizes this is his chance to show her the man he really is. Brix was not prepare for the truth he is about to find out and the pain that comes with it. Indulgence is not for the faint of heart nor is it a night to find true love. I loved Brix in the first book, he is a good guy who has given up a lot just to get where he is. I am glad things worked out for him in this book. I look forward to reading more from Jeanne McDonald.

Maybe just maybe he indulged a little too much or is it possible that his dip into the fun, release and freedom afforded from participating will help him find his way. This book is hot and this author plays us like a fiddle keeping us turning the pages not only for the hotness factor but also for the story. The characters, the night, the stories behind the scene all build up to a great ending that soothes the heart. A night of Indulgence which helped open eyes to a world of possibilities yet to be explored.

    I volunteered to read an ARC to post a review for United Indie Book Blog - This was an excellent read with great flow and character development. This is the second book the A Taking Chances Series. It is a stand-a-lone book but obviously has overlapping of characters and circumstances from Book 1 Indulgence. This book is about Brix Johnson, handsome and nice guy yoga instructor and Aspen Church, sex blogger, reporter. They had a sexual connection in Book 1 that had a lasting impression for Brix.

He never knew Aspen's name and had searched for her to no avail. In this book we are once again exposed to the carnal pleasure that those looking for physical satisfaction can pursue at the New Year's Eve once a year party at Indulgence. Brix returns for the second time to forget about his mysterious lady and to seek satisfaction without connection. This book definitely explores adult steamy content of BDSM and alternate lifestyles. The sex scenes are panty-melting scorching hot! I enjoyed both Indulgence and this book.

    Hot. Steamy. But with a difference. A shyer, not-quit-as-sure-of-himself lead, that endears himself to the reader. Lots of Indulgence references, so it does help to read the first book before tackling this one. Love revisiting some of the other characters, but so glad Brix got his own book, and his own HEA. Jeanne has some major hot scenes in this book, and she handles them with a deft hand. Fast paced, and enjoyable. Great read.

    Brix is the sweet intellectual man that doesn't know how hot he is. He's not confident with women like he should be. One night of the hottest sex of his life with an anonymous woman ruins him. He spent months looking for her. He finally went back to Indulgence he finally finds her only for it to be ruined again. Get ready to meet the man every girl dreams of.

    Rating 4.5 I absolutely love Brix!!! First, my favorite type of POV is the male POV which this story is completely told from Brix's side. He is shy and insecure about who he is which I kind of found refreshing. He wants to be someone else and where else can he do that but at Indulgence and boy does he. His experience is filled with dominance and some surprises. He meets a dominate bombshell at a wedding that literally rocks his world and is searching for her and when he finds her again wow to say Rating 4.5 I absolutely love Brix!!!

I love Jeanne McDonald's stories and she doesn't disappoint with Satisfaction - she takes us on a great journey and really ties into the voice of this character. Her writing is full of great dialog and images that transport you the reader to this great setting and makes me want to spend more time with these characters. We do get to see some of the familiar characters from book 1 - loved revisiting Addison and Sebastian again! I loved the ending, it was perfect within the context of the story - love! It was great to get a chance to catch up with Brix again he definitely deserved his own story and this doesn't disappoint.

    4 star review of Satisfaction (Taking Chances Series, #2) by Jeanne McDonald This was a new author to me and although not a particularly long read I enjoyed it. I was intrigued when I read the premise of the story. Brix has always had trouble communicating and talking to women as he is reserved, almost nerdy and somewhat shy.

I was intrigued when I read the premise of the story. Brix has always had trouble communicating and talking to women as he is reserved, almost nerdy and somewhat shy. In fact he has secretly been crushing on one of his yoga students, Addison George. He is shocked when an opportunity arises to attend Indulgence, a yearly, invitation only, New Year’s Eve erotic masquerade party. When he sees Addison there he decides it is now or never, only to find out that she is already involved with someone. Brix is the guy that always does the right thing, a nice guy, so instead of pursing her he encourages her to go after the man she really wants. When he attends a close friend’s wedding, he is absolutely shocked when he is propositioned by a hot tattooed bombshell that intrigues him straight away. What follows is a night of intense pleasure; hooking up for casual sex he is absolutely amazed at the connection between him and the mystery woman who refuses to give him her name. After she disappears into the night, he searches high and low for her, becoming obsessed with finding her. Addison and Sebastian encourage him to attend the next annual Indulgence, New Year’s Eve erotic masquerade party and Brix finally decides that he may as well. Imagine the incredible shock when he sees his mystery bombshell is also there. What follows is a series of miss-communication, hurt and betrayal with Brix devastated and angry. Can Brix and his mystery woman finally get together and create a future? Or will he walk away from it all?

    We are back at Indulgence!! This book is hot, steamy and totally addictive! This book is a standalone, but I would HIGHLY recommend you read book 1 first, as there is a fair bit of overlap, and to fully appreciate Brix's story and understand all of the characters involvement, it would be beneficial to read 'Indulgence' beforehand. Having read the first book and I was super pleased that Brix was getting his own book. He really deserved it and Jeanne did not let us down with this story for him. Bri We are back at Indulgence!! This book is hot, steamy and totally addictive! This book is a standalone, but I would HIGHLY recommend you read book 1 first, as there is a fair bit of overlap, and to fully appreciate Brix's story and understand all of the characters involvement, it would be beneficial to read 'Indulgence' beforehand. Having read the first book and I was super pleased that Brix was getting his own book. He really deserved it and Jeanne did not let us down with this story for him. Brix is a very different character, and not necessarily the alpha male you might expect. He is extremely hot and sexy, but at the same time is lacking a lot of self confidence himself and is pretty shy. He's the total opposite of a cocky, confident guy, and is actually far more reserved but also very honest and sincere. Brix meets the woman of his dreams, and following an evening of passion they part ways but he doesn't even know her name. He's desperate to find her again and continue where they left off, but she either can't be found or doesn't want to be found. Being friends with Addison, means that Brix ends up heading to Indulgence again for another New Year party! And that's when the fun really starts....! This book is very passionate and sensual, and written beautifully. It's a quick, fun easy read, packed full of fun, frolics, humor and a serious side. Erotic romances can be a bit OTT, but again, Jeanne McDonald has written the story so well, it's perfect. We get plenty from Addision and Sebastian in this story which is great as I loved those two, and lots from all of the other secondary characters which I would love to see more from! I really look forward to reading more in this series as there are a lot of characters whose stories I would love to explore, and a few questions I would still like answered! Overall a really great 5 star read which I devoured from start to finish and left me feeling truly satisfied!! Lou 4TLoReading Blog

So he becomes her friend, and while at another friend's wedding, he meets a mysterious woman, with who he has the best night of sex with, and after it's over, she won't tell him her name, then disappears.

He can't seem to get that woman out of his mind, and yet, he can't find her either. He gets another invitation to Indulgence, a New Year's Eve, erotic masquerade party, and is talked into going again, since when he's there, he can be whoever he wants to be. But what happens when his past mixes with fantasy? Let me start out by stating for the record, THIS STORY IS SUPER HOT HOT HOT! I'm sure I'll repeat that more than once, but it's taken every in me to not just type HOT over and over again. Brix is a shyer man who always feels like the nerd, although he looks nothing like one now, so he was very enduring to me. But he had some serious sex appeal when all is said and done. I really didn't get a feel for the mysterious woman, so I wasn't real sure about her. Jeanne McDonald has a talented writing style that not only makes it easy to become fully immersed in, but her writing shot sparks out of my kindle with all of the FIERY, SCORCHIN HOT FLAMES of sexy scene goodness that leaves no panties left standing. She added in a twist or two that came out of left field that made for f-bomb dropping moments, and some well placed humor kept me laughing. The ending felt too rushed for me, and so I"m begging for Brix to get a bit more story pretty please! With that being said, I cannot wait to see what else this author writes about that will disintegrate my drawers. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This spunky, take charge spitfire turns his world upside down.... but in a good way. But after a tantalizing affair, she runs away without leaving her name or number to contact her. After much searching, he beings to think it wasn't meant to be. It's New Year's Eve again and he decides to attend Indulgence one more time. It was the last place he expected to see his siren again, but this time he has a choice to make... does he finally get to know her or walk away just as she did to him. But just as he's ready to make a decision that will effect his future, he learns the extent of secrets kept by his friends. How will he handle the truth and will the good guy finally get the girl? Satisfaction is an interesting, sensual read about a guy learning just who he is, becoming the man he always wanted to be. He's shy around woman and easily tongue tied around women that he desires. The journey he takes throughout this book is scintillating and keeps you on the edge of your seat. He may be award at times, but he's got an alter persona that shines through, giving him confidences that adds to his sexual appeal. I really enjoyed this story that showcases Brix's sweet and caring side right along with his alpha, dominate side. He's a man that knows how to please a woman with this give and take. Brix is the type of man you can take home to meet the parents, but also the type of man that's a beast in the bedroom. If you are looking for a man that will stand beside you as a partner and deliver on all your naughty fantasies, then Brix is your man.

    Brix Johnson needs a boost in the self-confidence department. The sad part is that he feels he has to create a persona in order for that to happen. He constantly suffers because he puts himself in the same space as a woman he lusts after. It’s nice to see he has a friend in Autumn and that she wants to see him happy. He wants her to be happy as well. You expect all males to be self-assured alphas but Brix reminds the reader that that’s not always the case.

The author could have left Brix trying to reinvent himself into something he’s not but then she adds in “Cedar”. There seems to be some type of connection that you will have to explore. Scenes are steamy and not for the shy. What I found interesting is that we have a book that is told from a man’s point of view written by a woman. She could have taken the easy way and had the story written from the female’s perspective. I would think that it would be a little harder from Brix’s angle since we all know how hard it is to understand a man but I think the author has pulled it off. Toward the end, Brix has an interesting conversation with Aspen - it certainly had me taking notice. Endings can be happy and they can be sad then we have this one. It left me hanging, which is a good thing because I want to know what’s going to happen to this characters. It’s like reading a soap opera. The twists and turns of the scenes leave you wanting more – and the sex ain’t bad either. You don’t have to have the first book read in order to enjoy this one. But at some point you should try and get it read so that you can understand who these people are and how they got to their place in this book. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Satisfaction is the second book in the Taking Chances series by Jeanne McDonald and from the way it read out, I will definitely be going back for the first book. When I read the blurb I was pretty much instantly hooked, a shy, somewhat introverted man who has some really hot sexy times with a woman at a wedding who wont even tell him her name then leaves him... - normally my tastes run a little to the opposite end of the spectrum.

I like my men to be a little more forceful, stronger.. a little more dominant than the woman. But I wanted to try something new and JM has a great reputation as an author so in I went. WOOHOO!! Brix (love this name) from book 1, apparently, gets invited back to Indulgence for an erotic masquerade party on New Years (loving this concept) and runs back into the woman from the wedding. The story is told entirely from the male POV (which I also loved) and was very well written. The characters, especially the main ones, were well developed and I feel that had I read the first book, would have been even more complex in their depth within the story. This is my fault entirely. The only issue I had at all with the story might possibly come with the ending. I generally like everything tied up nice and neat and the author left this a little open but since this is a series I can understand why. I am very much looking forward to any more books she might have coming in this series and will now go back and pick up the first story. 4**** WickedGoodStars!
