This book is fire! Straight from the very first chapter I was sucked in and held until that last page that I wanted to come because I needed to know how things would come to a close, but at the same time I dreaded so much so. I loved this read and was so enamored. I could not get this book out of my head long after I had finished it. This brought the best of both worlds for me with the slow burn romance and the dark underworld of the mafia too. I won’t divulge all the details or anymore than the blurb does because I feel that would give away too much and ruin the experience for readers. This is one you won’t want to miss and you will have to take my world for it. I will definitely be back for more in this series as soon as it is available! Melody Calder was a new author to me when I picked up this gem but I was pleased with my experience so much I have since gone and one-clicked some of her other works to devour in the very near future as well!
Wow. I couldn’t put this page turner down. I felt like I was holding my breath for most of it. Just a fantastic story full of action and suspense and heart stopping emotion. I connected immediately to the storyline and just couldn’t put the book down before finishes. Just one of those books that you devour. I know I did. Excellent excellent book.
I was sucked into the story immediately. Drama, tension, drug cartel, and a daughter caught up in being a pawn among all the secrets. Can Ramone whose job is to keep Katie safe after being shot save her from a life that she has no control over? Katie suffers PTSD and anxiety attacks after being shot, can Ramone help her become the strong woman that her father expects? It is the only way to keep them both safe from her father, a drug boss. The book ends without satisfying all my questions. I can’t wait for the next in the series.
I give Sexy Drug (Losing My Heart Book 1) by Melody Calder 5 out of 5 stars. This book hits the ground running and is a page-turner for sure! When spoiled daughter Katie is under attack, her father puts Ramone in charge of keeping her safe with one very important rule – keep your hands off! Ramone and Katie butt heads, so he thinks this will be no problem…boy, is he wrong! It’s not hard to get wrapped up in the lives of Katie and Ramone and these two are characters you will love to root for. The pace of this story keeps your attention and is well-written. The best part? It’s book 1 of the Losing My Heart series, so there is definitely more romance and action to come! Highly recommend this author and this book.
Sexy Drug by Melody Calder is the first book in the Losing My Heart Series. Identity is important, portrayal even more so. Kate finds this out as she learns everyone isn’t always who they seem on the outside.
Katie’s dad is a ruthless and cruel man. She can only assume her new body guard, Ramone, is the same. An instant dislike is apparent between the two. However, when you spend all of your time with someone, you get to know them on a deeper level.
Can first impressions be put aside for these two to work together, or is it a disaster from the start? If they can’t work it out, who suffers?
Review by Carly Vogler
A mafia boss as cold and calculating as they come or so I thought. This book had me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next foot to fall. Katie the daughter of the mafia boss has many trials as she is put in her place by her father. Living with bodyguards constantly and no privacy is a never ending tight rope. Book 2 is a must in this series.
Intense, confronting and brutal. This author does not hold back. Once you dive in, you better hold your breath because you won’t come up for air until the end. I felt such a connection to Katie and Ramone and the world that the author creates is so tangible and real. Slow to build but that just adds to the essence of the storyline. With that ending I am in need of book 2.
I enjoyed this book. This is my first book by this author and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. This is a well written story about the daughter of a drug lord and a trusted employee. Ramone has been put in charge of Katie’s safety. Problem is she gets everything she wants. He has ambitions and he is not willing to let her get in his way. What happens next with them is not expected but you will want to find out! They are great characters that made the story feel realistic. This is an engaging story that is fast paced with romance and some action. I enjoyed watching their growth throughout their story. This is a shorter story that I highly recommend.

Sexy Drug is the first book in the Losing My Heart series by Melody Calder.
I was so upset when I went to the next page, just to realize it was over.
I found myself entranced in this story, I wasn’t ready for it to end.… I needed more.
Katie is the daughter of a dangerous drug lord and can have anything and everything she wants. Ramone is one of the Bosses trusted men.
They can’t stand each other. He sees a spoiled brat and she sees a ruthless man like her father. When Ramone gets put in charge of her safety and is forced to be with her 24/7, sparks will fly.
Will they be able to look past each other’s flaws and be friends?
Or will the demand of what is expected of them be too much?
It seems like everyone has secrets and no one can be trusted.
My heart goes out to Katie and all that she is going through.
I am appalled by her father and everything he is doing and I hope that he’s not going to get away with it.
I am so ready to see what happens next!
This is a great start to a series that is sure to be one of my favorites!
