Alisha Rai's The Karimi Siblings SeriesSo I've already talked about Alisha Rai and her unbelievably amazing erotica, Glutton For Pleasure, Serving Pleasure, and A Gentleman In The Streets in my review post here. And I mentioned how I am slowly making my way through everything she's written or recommends because I think I may love her.

Falling For Him was just what I needed when I was going through some pretty bad PMS and basically ODing on chocolate and wondering where all the perfect men in books were in real life. I mean, really authors, are these men for real? Is art imitating life? Because if so, I need to find my Mason.

|Mason was on it.|
Also, when they finally get down to it, the sex is PHENOMENAL. Alisha Rai should give classes on writing sex scenes. And the bone melting chemistry between the main characters... Phew! INTENSE! Also some of the best sex scenes I've ever read, consistently! (I cannot repeat it enough, you guys have to read Serving Pleasure and A Gentleman In The Streets... seriously HOTTEST books I've read in a while).

Waiting For Her was the second book about Leyla's brother Sasha. I was wondering what Sasha would be like, since he was a bit of an ass in Leyla's book (pretty typical when it comes to guys from the East and their sisters, really. Although, thankfully, mine is nothing like that.) But I was pleasantly surprised. Sure, he thinks he knows what he's talking about and is a bit bullheaded. But it comes from a good place. And I was confident Maira would whip him into shape!
Sasha's a dreamboat. Like seriously *call home about him* hot. But he's a bit of a stubborn ass, and I like how his sister and girlfriend (Soon to be girlfriend?) know how to work around it. Dr.Maira Khan is a young doctor, who has been in love with Sasha FOREVER, but hasn't done diddly squat about it till the events of this book. Life or death situations can put things into stark perspective for you, and Maira decides to finally take action.
I liked how drama free Maira was. In fact, I'm pretty sure Sasha created most of the drama ha! I adored how the story progressed though, even after Sasha fucked up. And once again, I have to give props to Alisha Rai for not wasting time on unnecessary angst. It is so damn refreshing! The sexual tension between them was so.damn.hot. I can't believe how much I enjoyed their pre-sex sexy times! H-A-W-T. Cold shower warning.

Who cares where he's from?!"
My absolute favorite scene is when her mom shows up the morning after their first night together. I adored Sasha in that whole chapter. And Maira's mom was all kinds of awesome too! I would not want to be in her shoes in that scene though. Just thinking about it gives me hives. Yikes.
I can't stress enough just how much I've been enjoying reading Alisha Rai's books (and her twitter feed)! Lovable characters, blistering hot chemistry between the leads, and just plain fun! Wench recommendation for sure!

These books are PERFECT for when you're in the mood for short and sweet romances, palette cleansers between other genres, or just something to pick up before bed! Definitely comes highly recommended by me for the smut and the romance! Enjoy!
