    1. Rating 3.25To be honest the entire setup of this book was bat-shit crazy and I shouldn't have enjoyed it but it still kind of worked. The hero is a former Hollywood stunts-man turned security business owner who doesn't know what happened at his event, all the guests were drugged and lost all inhibitions, indulging in an orgy. He asks his friend for help and he sends Lodestone agent and his ex fiancee Dakota.Rand is not happy to see her and has had no contact with her since he broke it off with h [...]

    2. Story Rating 4.5 StarsCharacter Rating 4.5 StarsRomance Level 4 StarsHeat Level 3.5 StarsAction Level 5 StarsOverall Rating 4.5 StarsThe only reason it did not get the full 5 Stars was because some of it was kind of hard to believe. Other than that this book WOWED me and I LOVED IT! I loved the hero Rand, he was so sexy and capable. I also really like the heroine. She had certain quirky things about her that she put aside to be a kick butt type of heroine.This book had a bit of a paranormal them [...]

    3. What I LovedCharacters Rand: Cherry has created another wonderful sexy male character. This guy was a Hollywood stunt double turned security guard business owner for the Hollywood elite. Not only is he good looking but he has a lot of survival fighting and escape skills that help them out along the way.Dakota aka Dr. North: At first when Rand sees her he has this intense venomous hatred towards her and I didn't like her. It took getting to know her and hearing her side of the story to like her. [...]

    4. In Cherry’s 2nd book in the Lodestone series we start off with a twist on the don’t drink the Kool-Aid. At a wedding reception someone spikes the champagne with an aphrodisiac and all inhibitions are lost. Rand Maguire used to be a stuntman and is now security specialist to the stars. His current job was to protect the celebrity guests at a wedding. Well that didn’t turn out so great. He calls Zak from the Lodestone group asking to send someone that can help figure out what and who could h [...]

    5. I was a little disappointed with this follow up to Hush. I was expecting to have my socks blown off but it just didn't happen. If it wasn't for the suspense of a set up, I would not have finished the book. The hero was OK but I didn't really care for the heroine at all. She needed to stand up for herself long before she finally did. The romance and the sex weren't all that good either. Cherry Adiar is capable of so much more, but not this time. :(

    6. A great read in an entirely different series than the TFLAC series and I was not disappointed! I loved the chemistry in this book.

    7. Review posted: Happily Ever After - ReadsBlog Rating: 3.5/5“I’m not going to turn feral,” he snapped. “I am feral.”~RandI love when a book starts out with the hero and heroine having a past that didn’t end well at all. Now they’re thrown together in order to stop a drug from being used as a weapon of mass destruction, a drug that Dakota, our heroine, had a hand in creating two years ago. The couple had been engaged and their relationship ended on a horrible note with a lot of hurtf [...]

    8. Coming back to the one man that broke her heart was something Dakota never thought she’d have to do. When Rand broke up with her over misinterpretations and lies she never could get him to see the light and she long ago gave up trying. Now the drug she helped to engineer has resurfaced with horrible complications. Only Dakota can track it down, whether Rand wants to admit it or not.All Rand knows is his sexy ex fiance is a liar. One ultimately responsible for his mothers death and the imprison [...]

    9. Kimber's review posted on Guilty PleasuresThe premise of this book had me laughing and intrigued at the same time, and because I enjoyed the first Lodestone story, I jumped at the chance to read this one too. Ms. Adair’s brand of sarcastic humor and edge-of-your-seat adventures will pull you in and keep you there until the very end. I finished the book in a day because I literally could not put it down.Rand McGuire is in charge of security detail for a Hollywood couple’s wedding and someone [...]

    10. Somebody gave me a bunch of Adair books and I've been plowing through them. I must say this is better than the earlier books, but suffers from what I think are the same problems.Adair is a bestseller, and I understand why: hot sex scenes and nonstop action. But I also didn't fall in love with a lot of these books because:1> It's supposed to be romantic suspense. I don't feel a lot of romance, but there is a truckload and more of lust. Chemistry does not equal romance in my book; every chemica [...]

    11. I fell asleep. I wasn't particularly tired, and generally if I'm really into whatever I'm reading it wouldnt matter if I was exhausted I'd still keep goingI fell asleepen had to push myself to continue. the first lodestone book was so so good, I liked the characters, the story kept me riveted, and the bad guys were well planned outd it was the reason i became a Cherry Adair fan Afterglow, as a follow up, was a pretty crushing disappointment.The story wasn't bad, just irritating felt like one of [...]

    12. Afterglow3 StarsA disappointing sequel that does not live up to the potential established in the first book. Aside from the fact that the heroine, Dakota North, works for Zak Stark, there is no connection between the books, which is unfortunate as it would have established a continuity that is sorely lacking. The hero, Rand Maguire, is a complete jerk and almost ruins the book. Dakota, however is intelligent and engaging although the fact that she still wants to be with a man who called her a "m [...]

    13. I think I would have liked this one better had the main characters not had a past together. Each one was still mired down in how the other wronged them that they had a hard time working together facing this new threat. By the end of the book I was tired of each of them bringing up the past, even when they realized how the other was mislead. I didn't care that they managed to get past it all. Then the big reveal of who was the big badwell at this point I didn't really care. I wish there had been [...]

    14. Another great suspenseful read in the Lodestone series from Cherry Adair. Afterglow had the right amount of nail biting, gut clenching action that I love to read with a small bit of paranormal thrown in. I loved both characters, Rand and Dakota, and felt so much emotion when Ms. Adair was breaking down the relationship between the two. There were a few tears but only the good kind. Again, there were some deaths that I was pretty bummed about but a Happily Ever After makes it worthwhile. I can’ [...]

    15. When I began this book, it felt like there should have been a prequel since there was so much history being hinted at between the protagonists. Fortunately, their history was gradually revealed in the book.At the start though, I thought it was a romantic comedy rather than a romantic suspense - who would think of an aphrodisiac being a weapon of terrorism? But it does get serious very quickly and the finale is suitably climatic and surprising. A good read overall.

    16. I'm giving this a 2.5. It started off slow and I was annoyed at the idiocy of both Rand and Dakota. Later you do actually see that both of them had reasons to mistrust and not explain themselves, but people who don't commit to finishing all their books the way I do would dnf it.

    17. If you can suspend your disbelief this was a pretty fun read! Completely ridiculous plot, didn't always make sense. But I still enjoyed reading it! I think it was the great chemistry between the H/h. They were also both very like able! I totally enjoyed it!

    18. Review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2012/03/19/I’ve long been a fan of Adair and I know when I pick up one of her books, I’m in for a good read. While I still haven’t gotten the chance to read the first book in this series, Hush, it’s waiting for me on my nook, and I can’t wait to see how this series started off.Dakota lost everything she had going for her in a short amount of time, her fiance left her, she lost her job and was caught in an explosion that put her int he hospi [...]

    19. Yet again, I had to read a book just to be caught up in a series & It wasn't very good. So the guy in this book broke up with (totally DUMPED) the girl in this story 2 years prior based on his mother & fathers words without asking her about any of it. All I can say is "WHAT AN ASS!"She is a chemist who can track people based pn a paranormal gift she has & is sent to Moraco tho help him with a drug slipped in the champaign causing an orgy at a famous couples wedding problem. Now my sl [...]

    20. Afterglow by Cherry AdairParanormal Romance –March 20th, 20124 starsAfterglow is a hot contemporary romance with lots of excitement and betrayal and a touch of magic! It is the second in her Lodestone adventure series.Afterglow features strong characters and sizzling hot chemistry! The tension between the main characters is off the charts as the hero begins the book feeling the heroine has betrayed him. When Rand Maguire’s security at a high profile wedding is infiltrated and the guests are [...]

    21. I think this was the wildest paranormal romantic suspense I’d ever read. The opening scene was shockingly funny and titilating, and it set the tone for the rest of the story. The plot itself was quite bizarre and implausible. However, I did enjoy the chemistry between the hero and heroine, as well as the adrenaline fueled craziness spanning across several European countries.Dakota and Rand had sizzling chemistry, but the relationship was strained for the majority of this book due to omissions, [...]

    22. Where to start…. I am giving this a 4 star rating, the pace was great, excellent twist at the end, and I appreciated the fact that Rand put all his years as a stunt man to good use. Rand, our hunky hero, son of Paul a pharmaceutical genius, has a rather extreme falling out with Paul’s genius protégée Dakota. Two years later, the same drug Dakota and Paul were working on, rears its ugly head at a wedding. Slight spoilersOddly enough, the notion of Rapture is not that far fetched. It would m [...]

    23. I liked this book but felt guilty for liking it. I think the premise is original and that's saying a lot from someone who reads as many romance novels as I do. Rapture is such a problematic drug. It's like E taken to it's logical extreme. I spent the whole time reading this wondering what would happen if someone ever created a drug like this. At the same time it's kinda a unique idea. It's soap opera dramaful in that over the top way that was really entertaining. I confess to figuring out the pl [...]

    24. Rand Maguire, a high profile event security specialist is watching his most recent gig go totally FUBAR. He’s supposed to be managing the security for an A List Hollywood celebrity wedding – unfortunately somebody slipped a mickey into the toasting champagne and now the entire guest list is under the influence of an extremely powerful aphrodisiac and are now shagging each left right and centre all over the wedding buffet!He asks Zak, hero of the first Lodestone book, to send help and he send [...]

    25. Rand Maguire, stunt man and now owner of Maguire Security handling the celebrity wedding of the god-daughter of his friend and benefactor Director Seth Creed's Monaco wedding, seeks to find out who dosed the guests with his Dad's failed anti-depression drug turned deadly aprodisac. The guest are horrified to remember they all had wild monkey-sex willy-nilly 12 hours before on Rand's watch. He's ruined without getting to the bottom of who's responsible. His old buddy Zak at Lodestone sends agent [...]

    26. Cherry never fails to blow my mind! Love this book so much. Non stop action. Disaster was about to fall upon Rand Maguire if he didn't fix things fast. Something had gone terribly wrong on a highly secret A list wedding. The last thing he wanted and needed was Dr. Dakota North in his life. The one woman who had betrayed him and had hated for the last two years. His father in jail, his mother dead and it was all her fault. Dakota has a special skill and no matter what, he needed her. The angst be [...]

    27. I read Hush which is book 1 in the Lodestone series. I feel this book is worth reading - however this book goes back and forth between a 3 to a 4 to a 5 back to a 3 to a 5. Without giving the story away here is my review.The book starts with a bizarre story. Enter Dakota, who has the same sixth sense as Zak Stark, from "Hush". (I would have liked more on how Lodestone started but in the end it didn't matter - maybe a novella in between Ms Adair?).Well Rand and Dakota have a past. And Rand would [...]
