Release Blitz - Re/Leased by Michele Zurlo

released 500

My Thoughts

I really love this series by Michele. She blends romance and suspense so very well and adds a bit of kink that makes it irresistible. I couldn't wait to read David and Autumn's story.

David's estranged father requests that he find out who has taken a large amount of funds from his business. He agrees to do so because his mother asked him to do so on her deathbed. His father suspects Autumn, so David and his team begin their investigation of her. In the process David falls for her. I loved Autumn. She has been taking care of her sister who is in a coma. Working hard to afford the bills. Making her a suspect. I loved her with David. Sizzling and sweet. I didn't see who was responsible until Michele gave the big reveal and I loved that too. I so enjoyed David and Autumn's story and can't wait to read more in the series.

I give Re/Leased 5 hearts!

About the Book

Honoring a promise he made to his late mother, David Eastridge, part owner of SAFE Security, returns home one final time—to help his father find the culprit responsible for embezzling three million dollars from his company. It should be an easy job—his father already has a suspect in mind.

 After a series of tragic events that robbed her of a father and put her sister in a coma, Autumn Sullivan was forced to take on several jobs just to get by. She’s an accounting assistant by day, an occasional service Domme on the weekend, and a thief-for-hire by night. 

 David’s strategy of hiring Autumn—as a submissive—backfires when he finds himself enchanted by her sense of humor and playful attitude. Determined to prove her innocence, he enlists the help of Malcolm Legato and Agent Keith Rossetti to dig deeper. This enigmatic submissive is openly hiding things from him. Her secretive nature and the bread crumbs she drops about her past don’t add up—not even when he assigns Jesse Foraker, his SAFE Security buddy—to tail her and search her apartment. None of them are prepared for what the FBI uncovers. 

 Falling in love wasn’t in the plan, but David makes her believe that she isn’t doomed to live a solitary life. Plunged into a world of lies and espionage—with a serial killer after her—Autumn is forced to come to terms with her past if she is to have any hope of a future with David. 

 Warnings: BDSM party games, sex toys, bondage, flogging, spanking, and a trip to the beach 


David regarded Autumn regretfully. “I didn’t bring ropes. Maybe next time.” “Here.” Jordan appeared out of nowhere. He handed a coil to David. “You can use mine. Amy’s not one for public play. Yet.” Autumn fingered the rope. The silk caressed her back. “I’m game if you are.” David didn’t respond, so she lifted her arms. “It’s okay if this is your first time. Everybody’s a virgin once.” “It’s been a while.” David untied the knot holding the coil together. “You’re going to need to be patient.” She encouraged with a smile. “I’ve got all evening.” Jordan took a few steps back to give them privacy. David worked quietly and with methodical meticulousness. Autumn mostly watched his face, but her gaze was repeatedly drawn to the way his shoulders and arms moved. Muscles bunched and elongated, and the deeper he concentrated, the more he sucked the corner of his upper lip. Autumn was tempted to offer to suck it for him. Instead she chose to say something innocuous. “You’re cute when you’re concentrating.” He glanced up, surprised, and his knot-weaving fingers stuttered. She raised her eyebrows. “Let me guess—nobody’s ever told you that you were cute before?” “You’re not at all what I expected.” “You wanted a leggy blonde with huge fake boobs?” He exhaled a laugh. “No.” “Botox lips and cherry red lipstick?” “Hell, no. I just didn’t think you’d be so forward.” “Ahh.” She sighed knowingly. “I’m not demure, and that’s a turn off.” “Not at all. It’s refreshing. I like that you’re lighthearted and that you feel free to tease and flirt. I’m having fun, and I didn’t think I would.” He went back to looping rope.

About the Author

I'm Michele Zurlo, author of over 20 romance novels. I write contemporary and paranormal, BDSM and mainstream--whatever it takes to give my characters the happy endings they deserve.

I'm not half as interesting as my characters. My childhood dreams tended to stretch no further than the next book in my to-be-read pile, and I aspired to be a librarian so I could read all day. I ended up teaching middle school, so that fulfilled part of my dream. Some words of wisdom from an inspiring lady had me tapping out stories on my first laptop, so in the evenings, romantic tales flow from my fingertips.

I'm pretty impulsive when it comes to big decisions, especially when it's something I've never done before. Writing is just one in a long line of impulsive decisions that turned out to showcase my great instincts.
