Blakely Bennett's Books & Favorites

Learn all about my novels and the books I love.

My Body-Mine

My Body-Mine - Blakely Bennett After completing My Body-Mine, I knew I would continue to write until I'm old and gray (okay, I'm already partially gray but you know what I mean).

I still long for a big bear hug from Marcello and totally fell in love with him writing this novel.

I know a few of my readers wanted a different ending to the series, but I followed where my characters took me and I stand firmly with the outcome. Jane grew so much through the trilogy and really came into her own.

Someday I might write a prequel and/or sequel. I would really love to dive into Luke and Janice's story.

Thanks to all my readers who connect with Jane and her dark journey.

The Golden Chance

The Golden Chance - Jayne Ann Krentz It took me a bit to get into it but then I fell in love with the story. I probably would have rated it 4 1/2 stars if I could have but felt it closer to a 5 than 4. I loved the romance and the intrigue regarding the families that are slowly revealed. Fun to see an unknown person thrown in to the mix and how she shakes things up. The sex scenes, although not really graphic were a turn on.

For the romance addicts out there, I recommend it.


Dry - Augusten Burroughs I really enjoyed this book. The ending is heart wrenching for sure. I would give this book 4 1/2 stars if Goodreads allowed it.

He has a great writing style and is a king at similes.

Good Girls Don't

Good Girls Don't - Victoria Dahl I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. It was a quick, easy read.

One More Kiss

One More Kiss - Mary Blayney I'd give a 3 1/2 stars if GR would let me. I liked the story pretty well but she way over used was/were. It was a slow burn historical romance.

Gone Girl

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn I thought she was brilliant at people description but overly wordy to get to the point. I found the ending so very unsatisfying. I would not recommend it.

The Master's Need (The Master's Angel #2)

The Master's Need (The Master's Angel #2) - Veronica Angel I found it to be a quick, sexy read. Check it out!

My Body-His (Marcello)

My Body-His (Marcello) - Blakely Bennett My Body-His (Marcello), the second in the My Body Trilogy (dark, erotic, suspense), has a lot of highs and lows. Jane's plight tore at my heart and I felt all her emotions along the way. Although Jane has the most evolution through the course of the trilogy, Marcello has a pretty wide character arc as well. I hated him so much at first but he showed he had the personality to evolve in light of what Jane experiences. I love that my characters surprise me and Marcello definitely did.

I love that I got to know the characters even better through writing this novel.

My Body-His

My Body-His - Blakely Bennett This book will always be very special to me since it was my first published. I remember reading my very first review by BookieNookie and I got very scared. She REALLY felt it! Then I realized that it was a good thing. If I could do anything differently with this novel it would be to make it even more clear (I thought it was clear enough) that this story is about a dysfunctional relationship and not a romance. Well you live and learn and I learned so much in the process of writing the trilogy.

I personally fell in love with all the characters and the ride they took me on with their story. I still miss you Jane.
