Review – Own It by M. Dauphin

Own It by M. Dauphin

OH MY HEART! My happy, singing heart, so full of FEELINGS and all the bookish things we dream of. DAMN YOU M for OWNING ME with Own It. I’m ruined. Completely ruined over your BEST BOOK YET! My new M Dauphin FAVE!!!

Own It was a quick read. Easily devoured in 3 hours.. I was ADDICTED. HIGH off magical words and epic emotions and everything in between. M has TOTALLY nailed everything in this book. From the first chapter that smacks you in the feels and grips on SO, SO TIGHT. To the simmering, intense connection between the lead characters that just steals your heart and soul. To the secondary characters that add into the story and aid the flow. To a story line that wasn’t littered with unnecessary drama, but focused on two people, both different, both suffering, both searching. All of it, totally perfect. Just breathtaking. Jett & Lo have ALL OF ME. 

Jett Voss. My current obsession. LORD THIS MAN. I want one. Like now! I don’t know how M writes men the way she does but they work themselves straight into your heart and just wreck you. In the BEST POSSIBLE WAY. I’m just. GAH! *floats from the swoon* 

His and Lo’s relationship was written flawlessly. They were just right. You know? Like I could just feel it and I just knew the relationship was going to give me those epic tummy flutters and it did. Multiple times. And by golly THEY ARE HOT. BURNING HOT! Just EVERYTHING. 
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Own It, owns me. It’s M’s best book yet and my ultimate fave of hers!! 


You know what sucks? Cancer. Cancer sucks. 

Especially when it takes a young life. Like the life of my five year old son. You want to know what I have to say about that? Nothing. Absolutely nothing because I don’t have the drive anymore. There’s nothing left in me except emptiness. That much is obvious. I’ve lost my car, my career, and my apartment. At least I have my brother. Actually, I just have a place to stay because of my rich, single brother. 

I’m struggling to find purpose again. After what life’s shown me it can do to a person, I really don’t care if I’m breathing anymore. 

I am, but barely.

Then Jett Voss showed up and it’s like he’s an oxygen mask I don’t need or want.

She’s got no cares left in the world and I’m determined to resuscitate her heart.

It was a one-night stand that connected us. She only had one want that night, and I took care of it. I’m not stopping there though. I may have not known her before her heartbreak, but I know there’s life inside of her still.

I will find it.

That means I need to stick around town for a while. I guess I don’t have many other options. I’ve just been forced to run a company I never wanted and I’m a little bitter about it. The circumstances of why this fell into my lap makes it the hardest. Death is a cruel reality. My bike shop, occasionally the open road, not answering to anyone… this is the life I was living and wanted. 

It’s insane what one look, one night, one person can change in you.

Review – Breaking Gravity by Autumn Grey 

Breaking Gravity by Autumn Grey


Two words to describe the experience I’ve had while reading Breaking Gravity by Autumn Grey.  This book, took my breath away, took my heart captive and stole a part of my soul without even trying. All of it, from beginning to end was just FLAWLESS. 

This student/teacher romance was EVERYTHING it needed to be and yet so much more.. Breaking Gravity started off slow, building intensity with passion fuelled dislike and two broken, battered souls. Gradually as things became more between our two beautifully broken characters so did the power and rawness in words that captivated and consumed. Conquering my whole being. 

I was hypnotized. Completely and utterly addicted to the way Autumn made me feel. I LOST MY MIND over the way everything came together. The butterflies in my stomach couldn’t control their wings and my heart wouldn’t slow down. Everything drew me in, everything worked. The mesh of emotions that plagued me while reading we’re so freaking intense. I felt the scorching heat and love between our characters, I felt the guilt and damaged parts of them, I felt their happiness and sadness, their joy and pain. I felt it ALL. Autumn Grey has penned an absolute masterpiece with Breaking Gravity. 

Breaking Gravity left me spellbound. Lost in a sea of breathtaking feels. This epic journey of two lost, broken souls finding love, closure and happiness has stolen a part of me that I’ll happily never give back!

I’ve always followed my dreams with ruthless determination.

My life was going well. Success was at my fingertips.

Until it wasn’t.

All it took was three seconds to send my world crashing down around me, 

ripping my dreams to shreds.

Then I meet her, with her large hazel eyes that slay me at first glance.

And everything starts to make sense again.

I try to keep my distance.

To remind myself I am her mentor.

That we can’t be more, 

but every time I push away, I’m pulled deeper into her.

The line between student and teacher is blurring. 

One kiss. 

One taste. 

They’re all it would take to cross the line.

Review – I Just Want You by Kaylee Ryan


I Just Want You by Kaylee Ryan



I’m going to start this review by saying I devoured I Just Want You in half a day.

I’m also going to say, I think this is Kaylee’s best book yet!

I also must say that I absolutely LOVED IT.

I Just Want You is a sexy, steamy romance full of sweetness and swoon.

One thing Kaylee nails in all of her books are her hero’s. Kaylee writes ALPHA so, so well. Alphas that know what they want, go after it and don’t care who knows. Alphas that make their claim from the start and see it through. Alphas that are POSSESSIVE, PROTECTIVE and OBSESSIVE yet RESPECTFUL and LOVING. Kaylee nails all that and more. In I Just Want You, Kaylee’s hero Crew was sheer perfection.
Crew’s relationship with Berklee was written brilliantly. I felt all of their simmering tension, heart pounding lust and then their intense, passionate love.

I love that this whole book wasn’t littered with unnecessary drama and mainly focused on the relationship between Crew and Berklee. Even the latter part of the book and the issues the couple face, fit really well and were written in a great way that allowed the story to maintain its flow and beauty.

I Just Want You is CRAZY HOT. Utterly addictive, sweet and sexy! A MUST READ!




“Go to college,” they said. “Get a good job,” they said. “It will be a piece of cake.” Well, whoever they are, they lied. Sure, college was a blast, but after college, not so much. The finding a job to go with my expensive education, that part was not so easy. At least not until I was offered a position at the new club in town.

Life is defined by the little moments that have the power to change it completely. I never thought getting a cup of coffee would change mine, but it did. She did. She’s one of those moments.

He’s my boss.

She’s my employee.

I want him.

I can’t resist her.

Review – Wounded by Abby Brooks


Wounded by Abby Brooks



AHHHHH! I’ve just completed Wounded by Abby Brooks. I’m a little lost for words actually. I’ve only met a few of Abby’s books but this one BLEW ME AWAY! My heart and soul are Wounded in the best possible way. I was not expecting to feel the amount of emotions I did.

From the initial hate/enemy feel to the inevitable falling in love I was RIGHT THERE! Abby’s words infiltrated me and pulled me right in so I was experiencing every single thing that the characters were. My heart cracked and then broke during devastating scenes that were written with such intensity.

My heart was rebuilt through beautiful, passionate scenes that also made my tummy flip and flop.


Liam and Bailey were so well written. As total opposites these two should not have worked but Abby managed to pull them together and she did it spectacularly. Both characters were so flawed, yet so beautiful, each fighting personal demons and trying to handle each others. Even when everything implodes and things are pulled to within the thinnest degree their love is UNDENIABLE. It burrows deep into your skin and flares hope and happiness that is then delivered just brilliantly.

Wounded, from start to finish is a breathtaking read that worms it’s way into your heart, grips tight and does not let go! 5 STUNNING stars!




For every wound, there is a scar.

Raised on fame and fortune, Liam McGuire is a spoiled man-child. His handsome face blinds the world, but I see through it to what he is inside.


When his tour bus rolls off the road, Liam’s rushed to the hospital where I work. A jagged scar runs the length of his face, ruining his good looks and jeopardizing his career. As his nurse, I’m around him more than I’d like, but the more I get to know him, the more I realize the world wasn’t blind to him.

I was.

Liam McGuire feels deeply and loves wildly, throwing himself into everything he does with more passion than I ever dreamed possible. With that intensity aimed at me, the scars slashed across my own heart start to heal. He is fire and I’ve been cold my whole life.

Am I ready to thaw? Or is life better—safer—when I’m cold and numb?





Excerpt tour- Love, Home, and Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan


In a bonus Montgomery Ink novella, it seems that falling for your best friend isn’t as easy as fiction says and friends of the Montgomerys might finally find their happy ever after.

Wedding planner Arianna King had everything planned out down to the last detail until her father’s ultimatum changed everything. Now she’s alone, trying to open her own business, and seemingly failing at every corner. Just when things start to look even bleaker, she’ll find out just how much she can rely on her best friend—and herself.

Being in love with your best friend isn’t always easy as Harper Rosso knows. He’s been by her side since the beginning, but now that she finally has time to breath, he might just be able to show her what he could be for her. Only he’ll have to make sure he’s ready to take that chance and perhaps lose her forever.

Sparks fly between the two of them once they finally take their relationship to the next level. Only the burning temptation than fills them might not be enough in the face of what they left behind and what threatens their future.

“You always see something in me that no one else does. Are you sure it’s even there, Harper?”

He fought the urge to turn his face and kiss her palm. “I see you, that’s what matters. Now, I’m going to take you upstairs and tuck you into bed so you can sleep off your drunk. In the morning, you and I can talk about exactly how you’re going to face this head-on. You can do whatever you set your mind to, and you don’t need your stinking father to make that happen. And while we’re at it, you don’t need Justin for anything.”
She snorted and tried to stand. When she wobbled, he got up, taking her with him and hoisting her into his arms. She was so freaking light, even with all those sexy curves. Ari wrapped her arms around his neck and sighed into him again.
“You’re acting like my white knight again, Harper.”
He made his way down the hall to her room, trying not to let the feel of her body against his seep into his bones. “I’m not the white knight, more of the dented armored stable boy.”
“Did stable boys wear armor?” she asked, sleepily.
“Well, they should have with all those swords and lances everywhere.” He tucked her into bed, her clothes still in place. He wasn’t that much of a saint, and even trying to get her comfortable by stripping her down would have been too much for him.
Harper leaned down and brushed a kiss against her forehead. “Get some sleep, and we can figure it all out in the morning. I’m here, Ari, I’m never going away.”
She didn’t answer, her chest rising and falling as she slept.
It was just as well; if she’d answered, he was afraid she’d say she didn’t need him, and he couldn’t live with that. Not anymore.

Review – Truth Revealed by KD Robichaux

Truth Revealed Ebook Cover

Review graphic

My heart wasn’t ready for this.
My soul wasn’t prepared to be shattered.
This journey with Vi and Corbin was not easy for me…. but oh. Oh, it was worth it. Every laugh. Every sobbing tear. Every swoon worthy scene. Every utterly sexy word and command from Corbin’s mouth. Every show of strength and tenacity from Vi.

It was worth it. Truth Revealed is perfection.

It’s been a decade since Vi and Corbin have divorced. Ten years since a lie destroyed everything that ever mattered to the both of them. They have both managed to move on. But while some things have changed, some things have stayed the same. Corbin and Vi can’t let each other go. They aren’t far from each other’s thoughts. So have they really moved on? It seems they haven’t. Clearly for Vi there can never be anyone that compares to the truest love of her life. Corbin still claims his little wife. He seeths at the thought of anyone touching her.

Opportunities arise. Things are about to change and they will never be the same once the truth of the last ten years is revealed.

I read Truth with my heart in my throat. There were plenty of late nights with Vi and Corbin. This book is so full of angst, heartbreak, loss… all of that, yes. But there is tremendous healing, strength and powerful enlightening moments. True love still shining just as bright as ever. The story is so well paced, so incredibly moving. I have never known a couple like these two. Their love story is so real. This isn’t just a story… could be me or you. So many touching moments, still so many belly laughs. And holy smokes! Corbin is the master of his sexual prowess. That hasn’t changed in ten years. If anything it’s even hotter! Even sexier. This man sent chills up my spine and had me running for a fan! He is sex walking. Then there’s Vi. So strong, so resilient. She’s a survivor and managed to take her horrible ordeal and turn it into something that empowered her. Damn if she didn’t make me cheer out loud for her throughout this entire story. She is Belle, Wonder Woman and Lois Lane all rolled into one!

I cannot begin to tell Kayla how much this book – in fact, this duet – meant to me. It is beautifully written, lovingly researched. It shows in every word that I read. It shows in how Vi and Corbin are still with me and how I still message Kayla to tell her how much I miss them. This is one duet you cannot miss. It is a must read! Thank you, Kayla, for letting me be a part of Vi and Corbin’s story.

Six Incredible Stars!


Truth Revealed Teaser 1


It’s been a decade since I divorced the love of my life, after her confession while I was deployed.
Ten years since I spoke to Vi, my soul mate, the girl who had brought me to life only to stab me in the heart, sending me into an even darker state than where I was before I met her.
Ten years, I’ve been watching her from afar, keeping tabs.
After a decade in the Army, two Purple Hearts and a Medal of Honor under my belt, I was kicked out with an honorable discharge, knowing no other skill than One Shot One Kill. Two years later, I’m part of a group of mercenaries who carry out justice. Criminals who hide behind their fancy lawyers and power—we take care of them and make it all look like karma. And with intel from our founder, Dr. Walker, a therapist with a long list of predators whose victims were too scared to turn them in, work is plenty and fulfilling.

Until Vi begins her sessions and I discover the reality I’ve lived the past ten years was nothing but a lie, when the truth is revealed.

 Before the Lie

#1 Before the Lie








KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom, who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a Senior Editor for Hot Tree Editing. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her very own real life romance.

Review – Bossed by Sloane Howell

Bossed Cover

Bossed by Sloane Howell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Life will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off. The right pitch will come, but when it does, be prepared to run the bases. ~Rick Maksian

When your heart is still racing and your pulse is pounding after you finished a book, it’s the highest of highs…the best feeling ever!!! When an author bats a book out of the park, you CHEER loudly and proudly!!! Sloane Howell has upped the ante, and brought his A-Game out to play in Bossed, his BEST BOOK YET!!! Fire-hot and feisty, Bossed blazes with a lethal dose of heat and heart, hitting one hell of a home run!

As if I were at a baseball game, Bossed CAPTIVATED and CLAIMED me from the start. This story stirred up a desire—a hunger for more—that surged through me as I raced through the pages like a fastball. I was CONSUMED as Bossed became my breath, making me breathless. The brilliant banter in Bossed, a fusion of heat and hate, was both my adrenaline and amusement, and I could not get enough of this feisty hero and heroine.

“What’s wrong? You can dish it out but can’t take it?”

“Oh, I can take it. I just prefer an entrée. Not an appetizer.” I shot a glance to his crotch.

“I can assure you, there’s plenty to eat down there. And it looks like you’ve been starving yourself for a while.”

I could not stop laughing at these lines that were the best fusion of laugher, loathing, and lust! My heart beat out of my chest as the banter took control of every part of me! Utterly BRILLIANT!

If beautiful Jenny Jackson had known that Ethan Mason was so arrogant and annoying, she would have reconsidered working at his company. If only her new boss wasn’t so hot and hard-headed. If only her new boss did not throw banter like baseballs, hurling balls of fire at her for her to throw right back at him. If only she wasn’t so attracted to Mr. Power Prick. If only she didn’t fantasize about his pr–…

Ethan Mason didn’t want to hire the sexy spitfire, this hot librarian-like woman, but Jenny Jackson calls to him from her smarts to her sex appeal in spades. He doesn’t want to want his employee, but can’t help the raging desire that burns when Jenny plays this cat-and-mouse game as well or even better than him. 

“You’re playing a dangerous game, Miss Jackson.”

Those words, filled with passion and power, infiltrated me where I tried to catch my breath as my pulse pounded like a drum, anticipating what would happen next.

Temptation is tough to ignore as there is a fine line between love and hate, and Ethan and Jenny are towing that line…

His mouth was on mine and my hands were pinned above my head. I moaned into his mouth and he swallowed it whole, along with my kiss. His chest slammed into mine and I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t see anything, vision blurry.

Now THAT is a kiss, the kind that is a full-body, passion-permeating, intense, and intoxicating KISS!!! Ethan and Jenny have a fierce connection—body to mind—with combustible chemistry. Together, they are fireworks ready to explode!!!

This game is not over until lines are crossed from forbidden to more. Forbidden fruit has never tasted so sweet. Will the boss and employee risk getting burned? Will this game end in a shut-out where only one player comes out on top?

Smoldering, sweet, and swimming with sexual tension, Bossed is ROMANCE BLISS! The heated banter bled angst and amusement, an adrenaline-filled high. My heart raced, fueled by forbidden love and feels. I did not expect the tears that fell from my face, emotions entangling around me like a baseball glove, waiting to catch me as I fell. Intense and incredible, this blazing hot baseball-meets-office romance INTOXICATED ME where I felt a FURIOUS RUSH!!! Bossed is ELECTRIC, a story that sparks with heat and heart from start to finish!

Bossed OWNED every ounce of ME!!! Bossed owned me LIKE A BOSS! I LOVED every enticing minute! Sloane Howell batted Bossed out of the park in a book that BLEW ME AWAY!!! I can’t wait to see what curveball Sloane Howell throws at readers next! 

“When I look at you, I can’t stop.”

★★★★★ home runs


STALK ME ON GOODREADS —> View all my reviews


He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.

Review- Wedlocked by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

I am so happy to see Ace and Dylan get their happy ever after, but I am going to miss them so much. They have truly weaves their way into my heart and will forever reside there. This was a fantastic and heartfelt ending to a new beginning for them both.
This book was the perfect blend of everything. It was hot, but duh, because Dylan and Ace! It was also funny.. But most of all it was full of complete heartfelt emotion that I did admit made me cry a few times (happy tears).
All of our favorite characters from.the past come together to celebrate the joining of this absolutely perfect couple. It truly doesn’t get any better than this. My heart just feels pure joy right now. That ending completed me too. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.

“SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore.

As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass.

“See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?”

“Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal.

Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?”

Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?”

A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.”

“Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.”

His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.”

“It’s more fun watching you.”

“Ace. Get your ass on that board.”

I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?”

“If you’re lucky.”

I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy.

“What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.”

“Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body.


“See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.”

I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned.

“Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.”

“I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board.

“You having fun right now?” Dylan asked.

“Maybe a little.”

“Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.”

I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head.

“Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.”

As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss.

“Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”

Review – Ready For His Rule by Angel Payne

Ready cover

Review graphic

Everyone that is a fan of the WILD Boys has been anxiously awaiting this book. The ultimate leader and best man in the group. John Franzen has been at the side of his men through everything. Kidnappings, murder plots, terrorists… love lost and gained. He has held the weight of the world on his brave shoulders and has stood strong through it all. How wonderful and how satisfying that this man is getting his own love story!

Franzen has been released from the service and his leaving wasn’t so stellar. Now he has been charged with protecting the Vice President of the United States and her son. It was supposed to be a routine mission until it wasn’t. An unspeakable act changes Tracy Rhodes’s life forever and now Captain Franzen must do whatever it takes to protect her. Neither of them planned for the chaos to bring them together. Neither of them planned to have a bond so deep and so lasting in just a few short weeks. Knowing that sacrifices will have to be made, the Dragon has to decide what to do – let the love of his life and the submissive of his dreams go and make the world right again or stay with her and drag her down. No matter the cost he has to keep her safe, even if that means he has to let her go.

If a series has to end, it should end like this. It should end with an incredible man facing his insecurities and his fears and winning the most coveted of prizes – his heart. It should end with the most heartbreaking but soul mending story that an author has to give. I laughed and cried my whole heart out. I swooned and sighed because no one does dominance like the Dragon, six and a half feet of pure power and masculinity. I cheered for a woman who through no fault of her own finds the world on her shoulders, and she balances that ball of responsibility with class, grace, strength and brilliance. Tracy Rhodes was the definition of the call sign she was given. She was a tigress and a fierce one at that. Mother, world leader, proud submissive. All in a day’s work.

Saying goodbye to a beloved cast of characters… oh, how it stings. Garrett and Sage are why I found the amazing Angel Payne in the first place. This series will always be special to me.

Are you ready?
Angel Payne’s alpha military heroes, the WILD Boys of Special Forces, have swept away readers across the globe with their fierce passion and suspenseful adventures. The warriors of the First Special Forces Group come together in one final book, featuring the Dominant team leader everyone’s been waiting for…

Captain John Franzen.

Inside the lines…
It’s the definition of life for Tracy Rhodes, and she has no choice about that. Lines–lots of them–are what happens when one is sworn in as second-in-command of the free world.
But the lines are crushed beneath the boots of Captain John Franzen, assigned as a special advisor to her security team for a high-profile event in Vegas. The towering warrior with the haunted stare shatters her composure, invades her libido, and makes her yearn for things she shouldn’t. Sweaty, illicit things…with her body pinned beneath his…

Outside the boundaries…
John Franzen, six and a half feet of rigid composure on the outside, is a lost man on the inside. Why the hell is he even alive? A guy isn’t supposed to survive eleven years in Special Forces, especially after the crazy missions he’s been assigned. Accepting the security gig in Vegas is just a favor to a friend–a way to fill time that’s become too damn empty lately.
Until the cushy “babysitting job” becomes the most treacherous mission of his life–and the politician he’s protecting becomes the woman in his bed. The lover beneath his bonds…

The submissive he longs to claim forever.

Breaking all the rules…
She’s destined for marble halls and an oval office.
He’s wired for dirt and violence.
Will her passion be enough to tame his demons…to claim the ultimate wild boy as her own?

Angel Payne

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and gooey kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimed Cimarron series. Temptation Court, a new series being launched through the Dark Nights Discovery project, debuts in 2016.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.

Review- His To Seduce by Stacey Lynn

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

What an incredible ending to an amazing series. Stacey has proven time and time again that she is an outstanding writer. I feel complete after reading this book. 

Cam and David are both on different paths in Life, though they are both running from their own demons. Can spends his time working at his friends bar and he can’t keep his eyes off the beautiful but elusive Camden. He vows to never give up. 

Sparks definitely fly between these two and it gets hot and heavy. Cam can’t promise him more than a weekend though. Her mind just won’t let the past go. Its hindering her relationships and future.

Watching these two go through different struggles in life and ultimately tackle them together is EVERYTHING! These were two lost souls who found themselves in each other. Such a beautiful story.

His to Seduce by Stacey Lynn

Publication Date: March 21st, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Loveswept

An honorable man who’s lost his way . . . A career woman who hides behind her button-up suits. Unexpected romance is the specialty at the Fireside Grill as Stacey Lynn’s captivating series comes full circle.

Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him.

Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.


“Please,” I whispered, and leaned into his palm now cupping my cheek. His hands were strong. Long, tanned fingers that had made me think of naughty things like this for months.

In the darkness, I saw a flash of his white teeth. “I like it when you beg. When you need me.”

Tonight’s need was selfish. A moment to forget the loneliness. A moment to take what I’d been too chicken to go after for months even though it was right in front of me.

He’d been right before my eyes, flirting relentlessly and trying to break me down. Tonight, I was tired of fighting the pull I’d felt for him despite how wrong I knew he was for me. This was one night. A moment of wildness I didn’t usually indulge in, but who didn’t enjoy getting laid at a friend’s wedding? It was almost a requirement.

His hands dropped to my knees, spreading them wide so he could step in between them.

His fingers teased my thighs, running up and down my bare flesh until I shivered from the softness of his touch.

My eyes were half-lidded when I forced myself to look at him. I saw only his lust for me, and my heart rioted against my rib cage.

Damn . . . he wanted me. It was as thrilling as it was terrifying.

One of his hands left my leg and cupped the back of my neck. He pulled me to him until our foreheads touched.

“I want this,” he said, his voice thick and gruff. “Tell me you want this.”

“I want it.”

“Tell me you want me.”

I couldn’t. A long time ago I swore to myself I’d never be vulnerable again. I certainly wasn’t about to make that admission when all I currently wanted was a night of pretending and forgetting.

“Camden, I want you to know that when I sink into you, when I push your panties to the side and run my fingers through your wetness, this isn’t a one-time thing for us. This is the beginning.”

I shivered again. From his words, his promise—something I so desperately craved but was too terrified to take hold of.

I shifted my hips, pulling him to me until his erection brushed against my center.

“Tonight.” I gasped as he rubbed against me in the perfect spot. “It’s all I can promise.”

He chuckled, moving his mouth against my cheek, down to my jaw and my throat. “We’ll see about that.”
