Blog Tour: Mind by Audrey Carlan

Mind (Trinity Trilogy #2)

Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance, Erotic


I’m a magnet for evil and controlling men. Chase, my big business tycoon thinks he can protect me…he can’t.

No one can.

It became clear far too late how serious my stalker was, that his threats weren’t idle. He proved more than once that he would do what it takes, that there were no stakes too high to his sick and twisted games and delusions of worship.

We should have been better prepared. The roses, images, lingerie soaked in his seed, even his calling card written in blood didn’t penetrate. I had faith that my love could make it go away, that eventually he’d be caught.

I was wrong.


In the second highly anticipated erotic suspense novel in the Trinity Trilogy, MIND digs deep into the heart and psyche of Gillian and her stalker through dueling POVs.

While Chase and Gillian plan their wedding, follow them and the entire gang as the stalker acts out his revenge and plots his attack on Gillian, Chase, and their friends.

This book can be considered dark, erotic, and thrilling. As in Body (Trinity Trilogy Book 1) the issue of domestic violence plays heavily in the storyline, and Gillian experiences many disturbing flashbacks of the past, alongside tragedy the stalker brings to the present. There is also a lot of love, devotion, and friendship.

Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language, graphic sexual content, and themes that some may find disturbing. MIND is book 2 of a three-part trilogy. Body (Trinity Trilogy – Book 1) must be read prior to reading MIND.

Excerpt: 18+

“That’s it baby, you take my cock,” he presses deep. “Take. It. All. The. Way.” He grunts until he’s seated to the very hilt, his heavy balls slapping against the crack of my ass. “You feel me, Gillian. You feel me inside you. I’m always going to be there. Taking you, taking what’s mine, giving you what’s yours.” He breathes heavily as he stirs his cock inside me. “You want that? All of me. Every” thrust “fucking,” thrust, “inch” thrust, “Of me,” thrust,” is yours,” he lets out in a feverish rush.

He tugs at my hips spearing me on his thick cook, the lips of my sex protesting with each massive thrust. It’s divine. Him taking me this way. Proving that nothing will keep him from me.

“What do you feel?” He brings a wicked thumb into the mix, swirling the digit around my clit in dizzying circles that sends lightning to my sex.

“I feel…” I try to catch my breath as my orgasm builds, swirls like a boiling pot, my spine tightening, limbs protesting as the first waves of release shimmer through me. “I feel us.” He smiles, comes down onto me and powers into me.

“What else?” He grates. His skin is shining with sweat at the effort to hold back, not just pound and pour into me. No, he wants it to be good for me and it always is.

“Baby, it’s everything,” I whisper into his ear as I cling to him in a full body clench before tipping my head back and roaring through my release. I grip him to me so tightly I can feel the exact moment his spine stiffens, one vertebra at a time, in extreme pleasure, before pouring his release into me. The orgasm goes on and on as we both ride the wave for long minutes.

When I come back from Nirvana, I’m still clinging to him, only now I’m sprawled naked on his chest, both of us panting like we just ran a full marathon. Chase extends his arm and shuffles through his pants. He pulls out his phone holds it out and takes a picture.

“Now look at the camera for me this time. I want to keep this moment with me forever,” he says. I can only oblige him. Certain that my breasts are plastered against his chest I peek up through my hair and my hiding place on his chest. One of my hands is lying against his rapidly beating heart. We both look at the camera, and I give my secret smile, the one I only give to him. He takes the picture and turns it around so I can see. It’s breathtakingly beautiful. I see the Drum Bridge clearly in the distance but most importantly, I see Chase, his eyes sated and untarnished by his past or our current situation. My own gaze is soft, resplendent. Mostly, it’s just another candid moment of us in love.

“Send it to me…that one is special,” I use the same words he used about the other image. He nods once and then tosses the phone back down near his pants. We lay together for a long time.

“Do you think it will always be this good between us?” I finally ask. His arms tighten along my bare back and waist.

I lean up and rest my chin on his chest like I usually do after we make love.

“I don’t know why it wouldn’t. I’m positive there is no other woman for me. No one else would put up with me the way you do.” He waggles his eyebrows, but I know there is some truth in his statement.

Kissing him softly, I pull back. “You’re right. No woman in their right mind would put up with you,” he cringes, but I continue. “Special dates and private garden showings, rooftop brunches, endless love making where the woman’s pleasure is paramount…you’re right. You’re ridiculous!” I giggle, and he nuzzles my nose.

“You’re cute.”

“Didn’t we already have this conversation? Cute is for puppies and newborns not naked women in their twenties who allow you to ravish them in public gardens.”

Chase laughs, and I enjoy feeling his cock wiggle within me. He likes to stay connected to me for as long as possible, but I know our private time is running out.

“Don’t we need to go?”

He kisses me then sits up. I shimmy off him and stand. The mixture of our combined releases coats my thighs and starts running down my leg. Chase watches closely, a predatory gleam in his eyes and a crooked, sexy smile on his face. I roll my eyes and grab the soft napkin that came with our picnic, wiping the mess up before putting on my panties, bra, and dress.

Chase dresses and I start to put everything away. “Leave it. I’ve paid someone to take care of it for us.” Of course he did. I shake my head and he puts my cardigan over my shoulders, the chill of the late afternoon in San Francisco starting to encroach.

“Next up…dessert,” Chase says as he leads me out the gate of the garden. I close my eyes and try to imprint today’s experience so that I can go back to it often. Whenever I have a rough day, I’m going to go back to those rainbow steps that tell a story so beautiful one must experience it with their own eyes, and the magical garden where Chase made wild and crazy love to me under the cool shade of a willow tree.

“I thought that’s what we just had,” I say, the innuendo clear in my tone.

“You saucy little vixen, come on. I know a place that serves up the best caramel cupcakes baked fresh every day.”

“You had me at ‘saucy little vixen’,” I grin.

My Review:  4/5 Stars

The story continues where the first one left off and Gillian has a psycho stalker that will stop at nothing to get her back. Chase only wants to keep her safe and protected and his overprotective and possessiveness has gone through the roof.

About to get married, this should be the time of their life, but when threats are made against her friends, the only family she has, they have to put their wedding on hold, but for how long?

I enjoyed this book, not as much as the first one, but things are heating up for Gillian and Chase. With her stalker on the scene, Chase has amped up the security and once it is know that the bad guy is going after her friends, he tries to protect them too.

There were parts of the book that I wanted to slap the heck out of Gillian, she gave in way to easily to Chase and the deal with Bree, I would have cussed her out so bad. I get that Bree was hurt, but at the same time so was Gillian. I really wished that she wrote Chase’s POV in this book, I got all excited because, she had Gillian and the stalker’s POV. So I was like heck yeah, I’m going to know what Chase’s is thinking, I even went so far as to go chapter to chapter on my Nook just to see if Chase would be there, but no luck. That was very disappointing, I will have to console myself in knowing that Soul, the third book, will have his POV.

Other then that, you have scorching sex scenes, a very strong and possessive man that will doing anything for the woman he loves. You will laugh and cry, what more could you ask for? I really can’t wait for the next book.

  1. Ms. Nessa, I very much enjoyed reading your reviews of Body and Mind. Thank you so much for “getting” the story and what the characters are going through and giving your honest opinion. Much appreciated! I’m going to be excited to read your thoughts about Soul in the future. BESOS


    • I really enjoyed both books. I even figured out who the bad guy was in the first book, and I can’t wait fir Soul. I enjoyed the excerpt and my dreams came true on Chase’s POV lol. I hope you have more books for the other soul sisters, mainly Kat and Carson.


      • Nessa, eventually Kat and Maria will have full length spin off novels. Bree will likely only get a novella. I’m so glad you loved the books! March 29th is when Soul will release but blogs will get ARCs in advance sometime at the beginning of March.


      • Awesome! I can’t wait to read them, I say you do Kat first lol. I understand with Bree, she already got her man, but it would be good to see how they are doing. I can’t wait to read Soul.
