Book Review for The One That I Crave by Amari Nylix

 Austin Heat #3

The One That I Crave by Amari Nylix

Published January 9, 2024 by Temair Media


Taken from Goodreads
:  Cold showers are required for this steamy series…after all, it gets hot in Texas!

The third installment in Amari Nylix’s addictive new series, Austin Heat: THE ONE…That I Crave will make you hold your breath, laugh out loud, and wipe your brow. The angst and heat intensify with the next twist in Rakell and Jake’s layered journey. The media storm following the explosive playoff game has the world speculating over Jake—both on and off the field. Who was that girl on the big screen?

This expanding cast of characters will surprise you as they come to life. Their motivations, pasts, and dreams are uncovered as this ongoing saga unfolds with new revelations.

After an amazing season, the Sacramento Condors are poised to make history as they face off against the Kentucky Stallions in New Orleans. Jake’s been focused on keeping his promise to Dwayne, and the sports world is swooning over Jake and Dwayne’s meet-cute and the fact that they reunited, emerging as one of the most instinctive quarterback-wide receiver pairs in the league.

Rakell grapples with her new notoriety as she pursues her dreams amid the social media brouhaha. She says goodbye to her escort persona, Marietta, hoping to leave that in the past. She finally musters the strength to open herself to Jake—giving into that Austin Heat.

If this were a TV show (it is not…yet ), think: a naughty version of Virgin River hooks up with Friday Night Lights. Add in a little Yellowstone toothpick-chewin’ and you get the vibe of this spicy Austin-based series that follows Jake and Rakell, along with a host of other intriguing characters, as they search for The One.


My Thoughts:  Are Rakell and Jake ever going to end up together?   That is the question I had when I ended book two of this series.  I really wanted this question to be answered while reading book three.  The Austin Heat series MUST be read in order.

Amari Nylix did not turn the heat down at all.   This book had me blushing, smiling, laughing, and wanting more of Jake and Rakell.  I love that Jake did not let Rakell get away with her excuses, even though he wanted to be with her more than anything else.   Rakell never let up on wanting to be with Jake, she just had to figure out how to be a girlfriend of a famous NFL quarterback.  

The Austin Heat series is a steamy, sexy, sports romance. 

Thank you GetRedPr for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Meet Amari Nylix (taken from Goodreads):
 Amazon bestseller Amari Nylix tells sordid stories revolving around tempestuous love affairs. Inspired by the secret liaisons of old west villains, heroes and the temptress women who lure those powerful men into their webs. She particularly enjoys it when the men’s armor is ripped away, exposing their soft under bellies known as their hearts. She relishes in the men’s pursuit of the soft, feminine kitten, only to find themselves shocked when she turns out to be a wanton minx. 

Years of traveling the globe, studying her human subjects as they let their emotions draw them into sticky situations, taking notes along the way, led her to write stories that taunt. Amari delights in sharing her torrid stories of heart-wrenching, epic love that begin with the desires of the flesh and evolve into affairs of the heart.

Amari resides in the finest hotels the world over, enjoying the attention of the men that dare. Little do they know, her motives are to reel them in, then use them for ‘research’ purposes. Her objective is always to dissect the hidden ‘sweet’ motivations of the men she writes about that are often disguised behind their alpha bravados. She makes no apologies for her pernicious ways. Her sole goal is to give all the minxes that follow her writing a fulfilling ride on the provocative, emotional, and often humorous train they bought a ticket on.

She currently splits her time between Austin, Texas and wherever the hell else she wants. She has an affinity for old hotel bars where she can be seen enjoying a cocktail or two, while she imagines all the saucy liaisons that were sparked within those walls. Her favorites are the Driskill Hotel (Austin), Palmer House (Chicago), the Hotel Del Coronado (Coronado Island) as well as the Hotel Rosewood (London).  When she’s not writing, she enjoys being served, by hot, ripped men…while doing ‘research’ for future books.





Book Tour for Dirty Books by Carissa Knight with a GIVEAWAY


Dirty Books 
by Carissa Knight

(The One Night Stand Club, #2)
Publication date: April 12th 2024
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance



Carlie Taylor, a shy and (often clumsy) erotic romance author, decides to walk on the wild side at Club Nocté’s latest event – a masquerade party. What’s the harm in a little anonymous fun? Well, when that fun leaves you with flashbacks of a stranger’s kiss and the world’s most baffling case of déjà vu, things get interesting.

Enter Adam, a personal trainer with abs that deserve their own Instagram account (oh wait, they have one). When he starts training Carlie, the sparks fly—but not just from the workout burn. There’s something strangely familiar about those biceps, but where could she have seen them before…?

Cue the drama: Adam’s Insta-famous life is like a soap opera, complete with a villainous ex who could give Cruella a run for her money. As Carlie and Adam’s flirty banter turns into something more, the world watches, likes, and comments. But can their fledgling romance survive the glare of the spotlight and the ghost of masquerades past?

The plot thickens like a good protein shake when Carlie has her ‘aha!’ moment. That mysterious, dreamy guy from the club? Yup, it’s Mr. Six-Pack himself. Now, the question isn’t just about enduring a tough gym session, but whether they can flex their hearts into accepting that their one-night stand might just be the real deal.

EXCERPT:  “What’ll it be?” I clear my throat and shoot her a reserved smile, the one I give to new clients who seem like they’d bolt at any hint of intimidation. “Ready to jump into the fire with me?”

Her eyes round, the whites embracing her green irises all the way as she nods.

“Yeah, fire. Jumping—great. Love fire.” She pulls up short, raising a hand to her cheek. “I mean, not actual fire, it might ruin my outfit. Not that it’s a great outfit, but it’s the only one I really like at the moment. So … just, you know, the metaphoric—workout—kind of fire,” she stammers, a mess of words and wide-eyed glances that somehow amplify her charm. “Good, god. Someone stop me.”

I can’t help but grin and exhale. While there’s a hit of disappointment, it’s pretty clear this woman isn’t the one from Nocté.

“Right, metaphoric fire it is, then.” I gesture toward the mats. “How about we start with some warm-up stretches?”

She nods, enthusiasm waning slightly at the prospect of actual exercise, it seems. It makes me wonder why she’s motivated to be here.

Something to ask her when she’s more comfortable.

As she follows me to the mats, her movements are a dance of awkward angles and misplaced steps. To be honest, it’s endearing in its rarity in this place.

“Take a seat and just watch what I do. Then, you do the same. Think you can handle that?” I asked dropping down onto the mat.

She nods tentatively, a small squeak escaping her lips as she sits down opposite me.

I roll through toe touches, figure fours, and even some knee and hip mobility stretches, since it looks like her joints could benefit from a little strengthening. Her hamstrings are awfully tight.

However, watching her attempt to mirror my stretches is like observing a fawn on ice—there’s a willingness, but the execution is wildly imprecise. It’s almost comical, the way she fumbles, and with each slip or overreach.

“Good. Feel warmed up?” I ask when we’ve made it through the full warm-up routine.

Her eyes meet mine and despite the crimson in her cheeks, she nods. “The metaphorical fire is stoked and ready.”

I chuckle, gesturing to a large, inflated balance ball. “Good. That’s what we want. I’ll focus today on core and upper body, with a little bit of cardio thrown in for good measure. Sound good?”

“Whatever you say, boss,” she says, standing up and brushing off her backside.

The gleaming blue balance ball sits in the corner of the room like a challenge made manifest. Perhaps it’s pushing my luck a bit, considering her initial awkwardness, but we gotta start somewhere. Right?

Carlie approaches the ball as if it’s a wild animal that might spook.

“This is pretty basic, so don’t let it freak you out. Here’s what I want you to do … Just sit down gently, like this, feet flat on the floor. Then, we’ll have you do a few crunches and back extensions.” I model the position I want her to get into and stand back up. “I’ll walk you through everything. You’ve got this.”

“Okay.” She nods, then exhales loudly. Her hands lightly skimming the rubbery surface before she turns around and commits her full weight to it.

The ball accepts her with a gentle give, and for a moment, it seems like she might master this precarious throne with perfection.

Her smile beams at me as she glances up and declares, “I am the queen of the— Whoa!”

In an instant, her victory crumbles as the ball skids away, sending her toppling sideways. Her arms windmill, but without much to grab onto, it’s the gym schedules and an advertisement for green juice she takes down with her. She lands with a soft thud, covered in a sea of fluttering paper.

“Are you okay?” I ask, rushing over to her.

Her face peeks out, sheepish and flushed.

Before I can reach a hand out to help her, she’s back on her feet, batting away the paper with a tight laugh.

“I always wanted to make a dramatic entrance. Consider that a rehearsal,” she quips, though her eyes have taken on a wild, maybe even crazy edge.

Carissa Knight is all about bringing the heat in every romance she writes, but making the journey as angsty and awkward as possible. (Because come on! What could be more fun than making the characters squirm?)

While she’s a new kid around the romcom block, Carissa’s actually been kicking out books for over a decade as award-winning & international bestselling author, Carissa Andrews. If you like paranormal or urban fantasy, check her out. 

In the meantime, get ready for her brand new steamy romcom series, “The One Night Stand Club!”
