Then the Reverend Hobson opened up, slow and solemn, and begun to talk; and straight off the most outrageous row busted out in the cellar a body ever heard; it was only one dog, but he made a most powerful racket, and he kept it up right along; the parson he had to stand there, over the coffin, and wait -- you couldn't hear yourself think. The charge was so outrageous that the steward for all answer only dropped his eyelids bashfully.
When he learned, however, the amount of rich furs that had been passed into the hands of the Northwesters, he was outrageous , and insisted that an inventory should be taken of all the property purchased of the Americans, "with a view to ulterior measures in England, for the recovery of the value from the Northwest Company.
I would have given them good words, but there was no room for it, two fiery dragons could not have been more furious than they were; they tore my clothes, bullied and roared as if they would have murdered me; the mistress of the house came next, and then the master, and all outrageous , for a while especially. The chemistry between emmet and Leah is hot.

And Leah has a major crush on him. With Outrageous Marie Force wrote a wonderful story with characters I easily could connect with. The writing is excellent and the story is beautifully thought out, beautifully told and beautifully written. The book contains Odions, a Quantum Short Story. Aug 26, Michele rated it it was amazing. From the hysterical dialogue to the ridiculously hot love scenes and the sweet connection between Leah and Emmett, Marie Force was spot-on with this newest offering in the Quantum series. The Quantum series hooked me from book one and I have had an absolute blast meeting each new couple and watching their journey to a HEA.
I was looking forward to learning more a Actual Rating: I was looking forward to learning more about Emmett and Leah after seeing their attraction growing with each scene they popped up in almost since the beginning. Aug 14, Stephanie Taylor rated it really liked it. While it is a part of a series, I can honestly say it can be read as a standalone. This series is a bit more on the erotic side than her other novels, though, so be warned! Leah Holt is fairly new at Quantum. Fresh from NYC and a job she hated, she is loving her new life in California.
The best of those perks? She'll do whatever she can to make him see her as more than the young, inexperienced girl he thinks she is.
But when a freak accident has Leah taking care of Emmett, neither one of them are able to resist their attraction to each other. So… I do love a good Marie Force novel. However, the series has had some pretty great reviews so I decided to dive in with this book. The characters are likeable, the story line keeps moving well, and the BDSM themes are fairly tame… and sometimes just darn hilarious! Her stories are usually interesting and fast-paced, with likeable characters who grow along the way.
Fans of Marie Force will not be disappointed in this novel at all. Grab your copy today!! Aug 14, Jill Dion rated it it was amazing. I did not think I would love another couple as much as I loved Natalie and Flynn but shut the front door. Leah and Emmitt had me at the first lick. Leah has been taken out of a job she really should not have been in to a job that is most perfect for her. She was a teacher but after going to her best friend's wedding she ended up with the job as a PA to a Hollywood movie star, who also happens to be another member of the Quantum group.
She is thrust into this Quantum family and sets her eyes on Em I did not think I would love another couple as much as I loved Natalie and Flynn but shut the front door. She is thrust into this Quantum family and sets her eyes on Emmitt. She falls for him while he goes over contracts the day she is hired. After that she ends up talking to him all the time with legal questions. He is a member of the "basement" and for now that is all he needs for the person touch, or so he thinks.
Then he is caught up in the hurricane named Leah. This story will keep you in laughter, tears and deep thought. I personally think it is the best in the series. And I very much look forward to Marlowe's story and pretty sure we can all guess who she will end up with. You can read this as a stand alone but I have no idea why you would.
This series needs to be enjoyed by all. It would work just fine as a standalone, if need be. I loved the story line and although predictable at times, it held my attention and cracked me up as well. I look forward to the next book and see what happens with another certain character! Aug 14, Carol rated it it was amazing. What a fun story. Leah wanted to have Emmett with every fiber of her being. Even if it was only for one night. When he got his package hurt, her friend, Natalie, volunteered her to care for him since she knew Leah wanted him. I will say Leah and Emmett's banter was hilarious throughout the whole book.
My husband kept asking what I was laughing about. When Leah's life if threatened, Emmett falls apart, but his friends and Leah put him back together. This book was full of sexy banter, fun banter, What a fun story. This book was full of sexy banter, fun banter, sexy scenes, and love.

It is Sooo good, this is my third reading of the series, including Outrageous!!!! Aug 16, Robin Maxile rated it liked it. It was entertaining, which is why I gave it 3 stars, but talk about a let down. The storyline seemed all over the place. Aug 19, Marcy rated it it was amazing. I loved Emmett and Leah! I loved her sassy, feisty personality.
The way she pestered Emmett was endearing. He may have been annoyed with her, but you could tell she was getting under his skin. There were some moments that had me rolling with laughter, which I love to do when reading. They also had me fanning myself with their heat. Aug 19, Samantha rated it it was amazing Shelves: This one definitely took had a lighter feel than the others in the series and Leah was so funny!
I loved that we got to see the whole group again and actually got so much from them. I honestly do not have enough words to say how much I enjoyed this series. It is one of my all-time favorites, and when a new book releases in this series, I will drop everything to start that new book. The Quantum family and what I have gone to experience with these characters has meant everything to me.
These books are perfect to me. They are exceptionally written, they are romantic and full of heat, they have such dynamic and memorable characters, and I enjoy reading every single word and pag I honestly do not have enough words to say how much I enjoyed this series.

Marie Force has such a way with words and has created such a phenomenal series with this world. I think what I love most about this series is that each couple is unique and special in their own way, they all connect into this world together. The friendships and the family that these characters have created for one another and how that builds through every new book and moment with them is outstanding. I am not ready for that, and knowing that this is the next to last book in the series makes my heart all kinds of sad because I just love this world and these characters.
While this book could be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading these books in order so you can really understand and get the feel for the family that is Quantum. And besides, all of these characters are exceptional and you will absolutely love their stories. Outrageous follows the story of Leah and Emmett. Leah is an assistant working with the Quantum group and is one of the most outspoken and sassy female characters I have read. She is a gem. And the one thing that she knows that she wants is Emmett.
Emmit is the head legal counsel for Quantum. He is all about the king and the BDSM that his friends also partake in, and he is one who does not have time for relationships. But soon these to realize that one night is nowhere near enough and what ensues afterwords is the story that will steal your heart, melt you something fierce, and will have you rooting like hell that these two can make it all work. What I loved about Leah and Emmett was there back-and-forth. It was the absolute best.
I had a smile on my face every page of this book. It adds such a heat to it, it is so real and honest, and it is so tangible in a way that it will have you believing everything they are sharing together. Marie Force once again delivered a phenomenal story for the series. It perfectly coupled the right amount of romance, heat and connection, spark and banter, where the story that was full of action and emotion and that just made me love those two characters even more.
Getting to not only be with them, but the entire world of Quantum at such a special time for them all, just made me fall more in love with them and this series. I loved every moment I got within this world and with these characters, and I really enjoyed getting to see the interactions that both Emmett and Leah had with their friends.
It just made everything so much more right and enjoyable getting that, and it reinforced to me again and again why I love this series and all of these characters so much. They are a dynamic and unique and loyal and special and just people I wish I knew in real life. If you are new to this series, then I highly recommend starting at the beginning and falling in love with the world of quantum.

I truly cannot recommend this year is enough! This series is truly special and one of the best I have ever read. Aug 15, Luisa Rivas rated it really liked it. The fifth installment in the Quantum series, this one involves Leah and Emmett.
Emmett is the lawyer of the Quantum group, and is also a close friend to all. Leah was gobsmacked with Emmett and was determined to get the man. For day The fifth installment in the Quantum series, this one involves Leah and Emmett. For days she kept at him, asking ridiculous questions about legal matters that she got from the Judge Judy show.
She was obsessed and as he says, it felt like a pesky fly that kept flitting around him. Emmett has a past history that prevents him from wanting to get involved in a serious relation. This book started a little slow and the characters were too much in their minds. But then, something switched and it was Marie Force in all her glory. Wonderful dialogues and interactions and hysterically funny scenes.
This couple was one of the best in this series.

They have fun in bed and out of bed, and they were so compatible. They brought each other peace and a sense of rightness. I loved seeing the progression as they move from lust to love. There was also an element of suspense that added a lot flavor to the plot and showed just how strong Leah is. I had a great time with Leah because she is so irreverent.
I also loved seeing how she kept Emmett on his toes, he never knew what to expect from her. There were many, many sex scenes of the kinky kind, but there were as many scenes of the Quantum family and friends. It was great reading, a little slow at first but wonderful later on. A great love story! There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
