Foreign Affairs Boxed Set by Mari Carr & Lexxie Couper



Reviewed by Tabatha


The Foreign Affairs series is exactly that...characters falling in love despite the great distances that could keep them apart. It's a fun concept for romance, but don't worry because you will get your HFN endings with each book. I think this collaborative effort between Lexxie and Mari was fantastic, and I also think you will all enjoy it too.


Everything about the story appealed to me. The two characters couldn't be more adorable if they tried, and I think they were perfectly matched despite the circumstances of their acquaintance. Annie might have felt like she was down on her luck, but I think fate had her best interest at heart. Hunter was such a sweet guy and trying to do the right thing, but chemistry and passion couldn't be denied. I was so glad that things worked out for this couple in the end, and I can't wait to read the next story in this series that features Dylan and Monet to hopefully see what happens when he found himself in New York.


Talk about sexual tension! These two characters had so much intense chemistry you could feel the heat coming off the pages. Unfortunately something, or rather someone, is standing in the way of them being together. And the more time they spend together, the harder and harder it is getting for these two to resist the undeniable and powerful connection between them. When they are finally able to come together, I swear my ereader was going to go up in flames. Now I thought that the first book in this series was sizzling hot, but Mari and Lexxie both kicked it up a notch with this second installment and I can't wait to get started on the next book!


I gotta say I am really loving this series so far, and I can't seem to get enough! Mari and Lexxie even kicked the heat up a notch further with this one. At first, I was a bit concerned given how fast these two fall into bed with one another, but then again I think it was very fitting of their personalities as well. There was some slight confusion in the beginning for Amy and Andrew, but they were definitely evenly matched and you could feel the progression from lust to love . This was one sizzling hot, guys! It touched on all my favorite buttons making it an absolute pleasure to read.


This one was good, but not nearly the same caliber in the romance department as the previous three books in the series. I think I just was expecting to see more of the romance that connects these three, but those moments together are glossed over. Now aside from that, the rest of the book was just as awesome as all the others in this series. The sexual tension and chemistry between them all was explosive. Keith, Marc, and Harper were great together as a trio, but I think what stuck out to me the most was the connection between Keith and Marc. These two guys were connected in such a way that you almost got a hint of them not being nearly as hetero as they claimed. Now that would have made this book even more hot. *winks*

So suffice to say, overall I loved this series and I think this collaborative effort between Mari and Lexxie was a huge hit! I'd love to see more from them both together as well as apart, but they definitely have something special with this box set of books.
