Review – Keeping Dominic by Alyson Reynolds

KeepingDominic_Front Cover

Crystal's review

My goodness! Keeping Dominic is one incredible read. It’s angsty, romantic… steamy and so so sexy. It is the perfect coming of age story. Dominic Torres and Brooke Caldwell’s tale of best friends to lovers is weaved with laughter, tears, miscommunications and a love deeply rooted in a friendship that as withstood the peaks and valleys of young first love.

It doesn’t hurt that Dominic is not only this dark haired, beautiful guy with a terrific body. He also is talented, devoted and so fiercely loyal to Brooke. He supports her unconditionally and loved her almost immediately. When Brooke makes the decision to keep their relationship completely platonic, he manages to hide his feelings… until he simply can’t. Brooke may not have suspected what his true feelings for her were, she had to have some inkling of an idea. One moment between them changes everything and nothing is the same afterwards.

There were moments in this book that were simply painful and heartbreaking. There were moments that I wanted to scream and throttle these two. They put my heart through the craziest emotion filled roller coaster ride and almost caused me to throw my brand new kindle across the room. Their connection is so solid and the chemistry and steam between these two is something amazing. Talk about an alpha? Dominic has it all in spades!

Alyson wrote a story that tackles some tough issues and demonstrates her growing talent of taking us into a story filled with what every romance reader wants – to be enthralled with the characters from beginning to end and leave us sighing, smiling and desperate to have more. Best friends to lovers doesn’t get any better than this! Truly fantastic, Alyson! Well done!

No one finds their soulmate at first glance.

Dominic Torres did though. From the second he saw his best friend’s little sister, he knew she was the one for him. Fast forward three years and now she’s his best friend and she has him firmly in the friend zone. He’s convinced he’ll never have the college romance his parents had.

Until the day it almost happened.

Brooke Caldwell’s life fell apart two days after her tall, dark and handsome best friend almost kissed her. A split second of hesitation made her question her entire relationship with her best friend. You wouldn’t think that a kiss that didn’t even happen would make her question her feelings as much as it did. But all of Brooke’s friends had said he had a thing for her.

Unrequited love or a figment of her imagination?

When an argument gets out of hand, Brooke and Dom hit a breaking point that has both of them scrambling into new relationships. Even pissed off and broken, neither of them can ignore the other for long. From best friends to lovers, one night could change everything.

Review – Something So Unscripted by Natasha Madison

5 out of 5 stars

Natasha, Natasha, Natasha! Woman I felt like you strung me along on a journey where I could only hope for the best, and that ending absolutely nailed it. You left me in tears as I was holding my breath hoping that what I thought was coming actually happened.

I’ve been a huge fan of yours since book 1. That’s no secret. You continue to produce quality books that reach your heart. I admit that I was so impatient for those two to go at it like rabbits, but when they did it was explosive.
I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Title: Something So Unscripted

Author: Natasha Madison

Genre: Sports Romance

Release: April 2, 2018

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39036169-something-so-unscripted

Blurb:

Zack

Finding my teammate in bed with my wife made the decision I had been fighting with for years easier.

It’s time to move on.

A fresh start and a new NHL team in a big city. Most importantly, it’s my son Jack’s best shot.

It would be both of our best shots.

Denise

After a bad childhood, I made sure I would succeed, so I lived for my job.

The problem is I die a little with each patient I lose. It’s part of my career at Hudson Children’s Oncology Hospital, but it doesn’t make the sting of loss any easier.

Seeking anything other than a life saved isn’t on my agenda until a NHL player walks into my hospital with his son.

We’re officially off script the moment we meet.

If this love is anything, it’s unscripted.

What Others Are Saying:

“Zack.” I hear her voice and just look at my wife. The woman who said she would love me in good times and in bad yet is currently holding a sheet to cover her naked body. The four-carat engagement with matching eternity wedding ring glistens in the light. “It’s just …” she starts to say, and I look over at the man in bed next to her. In our bed.

“It’s over.” I say the two words I swore I wouldn’t say no matter how hard it got. No matter how much I saw her push me away, no matter that I always suspected she was cheating on me. Then I look over at the man who I called a brother, the man who stood by my side on and off the ice. “You’re scum.”

“It just happened,” Colton says, getting out of the bed. At least he’s wearing boxers. His knee is still wrapped from the operation he had last month, which is why he wasn’t on the road with us, which is how I surprised them.

We were on the road for the whole week and due back tomorrow, but I hightailed it out of there to get home to my family and my son. “It just so happened you walked into my house and slept with my wife?” I ask him, and I have to wonder why I’m not more pissed, why I’m not more angry with them. “You come here and sleep with my wife with my son under the same roof.”

“Zack,” my wife says, and I look over at her again. Tears are rolling down her cheeks, her perfectly made up face now streaked with the black mascara she always wears. “Please let’s …”

I shake my head, putting my hands in my pockets. “Let’s what? Let’s talk about this?” I throw my head back and laugh. “Let’s talk about the fact that our son is in his room dying. Let’s talk about the fact that instead of helping him, you’re just helping yourself. Let’s talk about the fucking fact that instead of being there by his side with me, you chose to escape the fucking reality that our son won’t make it to six years old.”

“No.” She shakes her head, and I know that I’ve about had it.

“I’ll give you an hour,” I tell them both. “One hour and I want you packed and at the door when I come back.”

“But—” she says.

“But nothing, Chantal. You did what you had to do for you, and now I’m doing what I need to do for our son.”

I turn and walk out of our bedroom, then down the winding staircase that leads to the big brass front doors. Once outside in the warm Arizona air, I take my phone out of my pocket and call the only person I know who has my back no matter what. My agent and best friend, Jamie.

He answers after one ring, and it doesn’t surprise me he sleeps with his phone in his hand. “What’s up?” he says, his voice sleepy since it’s four a.m. in New York.

“I want out of Arizona, make the trade. Call the powers that be; I want out,” I tell him, getting into my Range Rover.

“You can’t just demand that,” he says, and I hear sheets rustle.

“Just walked in on Colton fucking my wife, so you can bet your ass I can. Make it happen. Call New York because it’s the only place I’ll go. I don’t care if I take a pay cut.”

“That fucking scumbag,” he says. “I’ll call them now.”

“Jamie, there is a top-notch doctor who specializes in cancer in New York. Max Horton’s sister,” I tell him quietly and slowly drive out of my gate.

“I’ll make it happen,” he says softly. “I’ll let you know what they say.”

“Jamie, I’m leaving here in a week regardless of what they say,” I tell him and disconnect the call.

“One week,” I say to myself. “One fucking week.”

Author Bio:

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review – This Time Around by Stacey Lynn

5 out of 5 stars

Stacey Lynn doesn’t just write books, she leaves an imprint on your heart! ❤❤ I knew this would be a great read, but was once again blown away by the depth of emotion she can make you feel with her words.

You will feel heartbreak and sadness. You will watch two souls from two different worlds slowly mend each others hearts after the devastation that each are dealing with. This book is a slow burn. We get to watch the characters truly break down each other’s walls and form a beautiful friendship. They never thought that friendship would turn to an all consuming love.

Stacey proves time and time again why she is one of my favorite go to authors, but she has even outdone herself with this one. I must now go and enjoy my book hangover.

This Time Around by Stacey Lynn
A Love in the Heartland Novel
Release Date: April 10th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cooper Hawke was everything I didn’t need. Rich and famous, and a high-profile actor, he lived a life of luxury while my life had always been much more simple.

Yet when he showed up at my cattle ranch in Kansas, he gave me everything I didn’t think I wanted again.

His marriage was over and he was lost.

I was still barely surviving in my grief after my husband’s sudden death.

As hard as I tried to keep him out, he slipped past my defenses, and slowly, a connection grew between us I could no longer deny.

But this time around, we were on borrowed time. Because Cooper still had his real life waiting for him back in Hollywood.

“What are you doing here?” I wrapped the robe around my waist, tightened the knot.

Goddamn it! He wasn’t supposed to see this.

“Couldn’t sleep?”

That was what he asked. The urge to scream at him, to unleash holy terror for putting the idea into my head and making me feel, clawed at my throat. “No. Why are you in my room?”

“Because I couldn’t sleep on the couch thinking of you and then I started hearing all this racket like the ceiling was going to cave in on my head and thought I should come check on you.”

My brain must have malfunctioned. I must have skipped some words, rearranged them in the wrong order. He didn’t say what it sounded like.

“What?”

He pinned me with a look. It stole the breath from my lungs. “You heard me.”

Shit.

“Yeah, shit.”

I slammed my mouth closed. If words were slipping out, when I didn’t mean them to, it was best to be quiet.

“Come out of the closet, Rebecca.”

He held out his hand. I ignored it.

I couldn’t breathe or move or focus.

He was standing outside my closet, and he was naked.

Not naked, naked. Mostly naked. He’d taken off the pants and shirt I’d given him and all he had on was a pair of black boxer briefs.

Skin-tight boxer briefs.

That showed every outline of him. And there was a lot of him to see.

My eyes darted to the side of the closet I’d swiped clean. Tomorrow, I’d bleach my eyes to erase that visual.

“Rebecca.”

“I’m fine here.”

He laughed low and slow, beautiful and over too quickly. I was not moving.

“You don’t come out, I’m coming in there to get you.”

No way in hell was he touching me. Not dressed like that.

I stepped over the bucket of shoes at my feet and stepped into the room. He moved back, giving me space and crossed his arms over his chest.

It hid nothing. I couldn’t find a place to focus on.

I was losing my mind. It had to be sleep deprivation. I looked to my bed and ruffled covers which made me think of…

Nope. Not going there. I stared at the wall. It was cream and void of any decorations or photos. It was safe.

Finally, I breathed. He stood there, watching me, I felt it like I felt my skin crawling from his inspection.

“Want to talk about this?” he asked.

Nope. I didn’t. I didn’t want to say a single word to Cooper Hawke. The man in underwear in my bedroom.

I crossed my arms over my stomach. Uncrossed them. “No.” My hands went to my hair and I untangled my hair tie, shoving my hands back into my hair and re-fixing the messy knot. “I don’t want to talk about it.”

“I might be able to help, you know. It’s not like I haven’t stood in a closet, wanting to do the exact same thing you’ve just done.”

“You can’t help me.”

He stepped closer. I shuffled back. He moved again. I retreated. He was getting closer when he needed to move back.

“Cooper,” I said, “Please. I need to be alone.”

“I thought we were friends.”

“What?” My gaze jumped to him, fell. Tight, tanned skin and black boxer briefs. A trail of hair from his bellybutton that disappeared beneath those briefs burned into my retinas. I squeezed my eyes closed. A futile attempt to erase that pretty, pretty sight.

“I thought we were friends,” he repeated.

I forced my eyes open and choked out, “We are.”

His full lips quirked into a grin. I knew that look. He had it downstairs. I did not like that look. Not one little bit. “Friends help each other, don’t they?”

“Friends respect what the other person wants and needs.”

I scooted away from him again and bumped into the wall next to my closet.

He took one more step toward me. Slowly. Like he’d done downstairs, allowing me time to move away, allowing me time to see his intention. My head screamed to move out of the way while my body shouted stay right where you are.

My body sucked.

He was in front of me, not touching me. Far enough away where he was in no danger of touching me.

I still wanted him to touch me.

His hand raised and he settled it on the wall above my shoulder. And I could smell him.

“Cooper. Why are you here?”

He didn’t even blink. “Because I want to help you.”

“You can’t.”

“I can try.”

Review – Blackstone by JD Hollyfield

Blackstone1

Crystal's review

The premise of this series really stuck out to me – Four Fathers. Each with their own story to tell but their stories are also interconnected. Each story gives the reader a different area of romance to explore: contemporary, erotic, taboo and dark. The blurbs drew me in and I was so amped to read Blackstone. I have never read anything by JD Hollyfield or any of the other authors.

Blackstone was just amazing. It was a quick read but I fell into immediately. Trevor Blackstone is one of the four owners of Four Fathers Freight. He’s a mathematical genius and that makes him quirky, serious and complex. His past has defined him and it one of misunderstandings, loss and abandonment. He finds solace in the ocean… and being in control. All of that is shattered when a spitfire of a woman moves in next door for the summer. But from the first look, from the first meeting, Lucy isn’t like anyone that Trevor has ever known. She’s funny, strong, observant and she just gets him. She’s peace in the violent storm of numbers, equations and formulas.

Like Trevor, Lucy has her own past filled with things that haunt her. Bad decisions, bad relationships, loss of confidence. Lossing her beloved grandmother was the catalyst for change and for the summer she’s going to take her grandmother’s advice and . She never expected Trevor, his affection, his attention. Weird but so very sexy, he turns her world upside down.

Oh, this was just SO GOOD. The story made me itch for more of Lucy and Trevor’s story. There were a few unanswered questions when I got to the last page and I hope that the next three books will have the answers. I laughed all the way through this read and Trevor is definitely not like any other hero I have ever read. Kudos to Lucy, though. She made that man earn her.

One fabulous first look and a great start to an awesome series! Great job, Jessica!

My name is Trevor Blackstone.
I am an obsessive, complicated, demanding man.
People may not understand me, but it doesn’t stop them from wanting me.

Being Sunday, I decide to take a break from memory lane. I snatch a worn historical romance paperback from Gran’s bookshelf and slide into my brand new white bikini. Grabbing my towel and a Mike’s Hard Lemonade from the fridge, I head out back.

The sun feels amazing on my skin. I inhale the breeze, tasting the salt of the ocean on my tongue. I drop my towel on the lawn chair and get comfortable. My shades are down, and my book is ready to be dominated.

“This is nice,” I hum to myself, lifting my lemonade and taking a nice sip.

And out it all repels as I spit and choke on it.

Jeeeesus Christ.”

I knock my sunglasses halfway down my nose as my eyes threaten to fall out of their sockets. Where in holy heavens did he come from? The half-naked man leaning on his balcony across the way. My tongue about falls out of my mouth. Is that Numbers? And holy shit, when did he get so much muscle? I’d call him fit, but that’s not fit. That’s like, “Hi, I eat muscle for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now I’m just all muscle.”

I wipe at my chin, unsure whether it’s lemonade splatter or I’m drooling. I’m probably drooling. I wasn’t paying attention to much of him yesterday when he was acting all crazy on my front step. I just wanted him gone. To be honest, while he was babbling, I was trying to dig in the back of my brain for my old high school karate moves in case he tried something on me. Looking at him now, I wish he had.

He lifts his hand, threading his large hand through his hair and dragging his fingers down his hard chest covered in a dusting of hair. “Oh boy, where’s that hand going?” I mumble, licking my lips. Oh yeah. I see where this is going. Yep, oh yeah… Did I just moan?

Oh, hell yeah I did, but it’s so worth it. His hand dips down into his board shorts and he adjusts himself. Feel free to pull them down. Show us the goods, I think, mentally visualizing just how big his junk is. He’s a pretty big guy. Big hands. Theory says, and all.

Watching him fondle himself in all his hot glory, my curiosity piques. How old is he really? He sure had a reason to take offense by my calling him old. He certainly doesn’t look old. He surely looks a zillion times hotter than Jimmy, and he was only twenty-eight. I’m not an age wizard, but if I had to guess, I’d say late thirties, early forties. Definitely a bit out of my age range. Why? No idea. No real reason screaming stay away. Well, besides the major one being he wants to evict me, tear down my Gran’s life of memories, and probably build a gym in its place.

Yeah, that’s a good enough reason.

It also reminds me it’s the guys who look appealing on the outside that usually turn out to be dicks on the inside.

Review – Rebel Heir by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Rebel Heir by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

I NEED MORE THAN 5 STARS DAMMIT!!!!!

Smoking hot chemistry – check.

Two insanely, lovable characters – check.

Solid, flawless writing – check.

Intense, heart pounding story – check.

Perfection in a book – CHECK CHECK CHECK!

20% was all it took for me to fall head over heels with this book. 20% in for me and I never wanted it to end. I honestly think I’ve found my new favourite Ward & Keeland book. I honestly think I love a Ward & Keeland hero more than Graham *gasps*. Yes I said it and I don’t regret it. Rush is PHENOMENAL! I’ve fallen head over heels in love with him. I just CANNOT EXPLAIN him well enough to fully tell you how incredible he is!

Rebel Heir is one of those books that just takes you away. Away from the world and all the things happening around you. Vi & Penelope have a way with their writing that is indescribable. They catapult you INTO the story, they make you a part of it and everything seems so real. Not many authors have this ability at all, in my opinion. But Vi & Penelope nail it every time.

As this is the first of a duet it ends with a SHOCKER. A shock-er! But the angst and the build up and the overall feel is so, so WORTH IT! I actually don’t want to tell you ANYTHING ELSE about this book because it will spoil it. You just cannot understand how amazing it is until you READ IT. And you MUST!

Rebel Heir is a sweet and hella sexy novel that builds this duet perfectly. The characters are insanely charismatic. The story is angsty and super addictive. I just love EVERYTHING about it!!

From New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, comes the first book in a new, sexy duet.

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.

REBEL HEIR is easy Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland best book yet! I URGE YOU to click this, RIGHT NOWWWWW!!!!!

Review – Endorsed by Marni Mann

6 out of 5 stars

6 stars

OMFG! I’m sitting here trying to write this review through teary eyes and wet cheeks. There is a reason Marni Mann is one of my absolute favorite authors, and this book just solidified it even more.

I can’t really go into the story because it’s an experience you deserve to have without it being ruinded, so I’m going to tell you about the emotional roller coaster ride that I just went on for the last 4 hours. Yes, 4 hours straight. Once I picked up this book, I wasn’t putting it down for NOTHING! I literally sat in my car for 2 hours while my son had baseball practice because I couldn’t part with it. It was too cold to read outside. I regret nothing.

This book shows how beautifully broken hearts can try do hard to deny things, but in the end fate wins! These two did not have it easy, and what they’ve gone through makes you fall in love with them even more. The chemistry between these two was OFF THE CHARTS SMOKING HOT!!! But the obstacles they conquered is what made this story all that and more.

I highly recommend you read this book. You can certainly read it a standalone but I highly recommend you read Signed. It lets you know all the characters better. Bravo Marni. I bow down to you!

My client’s younger sister is off-f***ing-limits.

Getting my first big client signed to the NFL was the second best moment of my life. Escorting his sister back to her hotel was the first. Imagining what she would feel like, look like, taste like—none of it was as good as the real thing.

If her brother found out, it would destroy my career, so I ended things between us.

Eight years later, the girl who got away still owns me.

First, I’ll make her forgive me, and then I’m going to make her mine.

He’s owned my body for far too long.

It’s been years since he touched me, and my skin still remembers every brush, stroke, and thrust. I want to forget how good it felt. Almost as much as I want to do it again.

We can’t finish what we started until I make my confession.

I have a secret—one that wasn’t mine to keep.

Before he can love me, he’ll have to find some way to forgive me.

When my hand wasn’t on the gearshift, it was on her thigh. Her skin was hot. Tight. But it didn’t give me the heat I was after, so I went to search for it, dragging my fingers higher on her leg. My thumb then dipped below the hem of her dress, tracing a small pattern over her flesh.

“Samantha, I need you to do something for me.”

She took a breath that ended with the softest moan. “Okay.”

“I need you to shift when I tell you to.”

“Why?”

“Because I need one hand on the steering wheel while the other is inside your cunt.”

“Jack…”

“Shift into third.”

She quickly reached across my arm, grabbing the gearstick and moving it like I’d asked her to.

My fingers climbed several inches higher, feeling the space widen as she spread her legs apart. “Now, go to second.” As I rose to the outside of her pussy, I expected to feel her panties.

There was nothing.

Just a bare pussy and a clit that needed me to rub it.

“Jesus,” I hissed. “Neutral. Shift right now.”

We were coming to a stop at the red light. Before the car completely slowed, my pointer finger traced around her entrance to wet the tip, and I slid right in.

“Oh my God,” she groaned. “Your hands.”

She’d missed them.

They’d missed her.

And she was about to get a hell of a lot more.

Review- Nobody’s Prince Charming by Aimee Nicole Walker

5 out of 5 stars

Aimee every single time I pick up one of your books, I’m transported to a different world
A world where happiness and bliss is all you feel. This book made laugh. It made me cry. It made my heart flutter. Most of all it made me feel whole.

Wren was definitely a character I knew I would hold close to my heart. What can I say, I love damaged people. Watching him navigate his way through unknown territory was a beautiful thing. I loved watching his journey unfold.

Dare, oh Dare. How can you not love him. He is that ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. He had this bright light about him that made everyone smile. I loved watching him worm his way into Wren’s heart (and his pants 😝).

Going back to Blissville is always a special trip down memory lane, getting to see all our beloved characters from previous books. I can’t wait for the next masterpiece that you send my way.

NOBODY’S PRINCE CHARMING

AIMEE NICOLE WALKER

M/M ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: 03.23.18

COVER DESIGN: JAY AHEER/ Simply Defined Art

COVER PHOTOGRAPHER: WANDER AGUIAR

BLURB

Fire and ice. Oil and water. Vodka and decisions. That’s what Darren McCoy and Wren Davison are: two opposites that shouldn’t mix well. Dare believes in fairy tales, true love, and happily ever after. Wren believes in fast cars, freedom, and no-strings sex. What can these two men possibly have in common? A magnetic pull strong enough to obliterate logic and reason.

For more than a year, Dare and Wren have worked together at the Curl Up and Dye Salon. Dare has pursued the mysterious, brooding man, and Wren has resisted his provocative charm. Then one day, something happens that allows the men to see each other in a new light. Wren learns that Dare hides a heavy heart behind his brilliant smile. Dare realizes that beneath Wren’s gruff exterior beats the heart of a prince.

Passions ignite once the men stop fighting their attraction, but will it be enough to overcome their differences? Is Wren the prince that Dare is looking for? Can Dare teach Wren that true love does exist?

Nobody’s Prince charming is a modern-day fairy tale where some princes ride Harleys, and castle walls are built to scale. It is the third book in the Road to Blissville series but can be read as a standalone book. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults eighteen and over.

We didn’t say anything on our way up to Dare’s room because neither of us wanted to risk waking Ralph. We were lucky that we didn’t get caught when we pulled that stunt in the laundry room. Okay, the stunt that I pulled. I knew that Ralph liked me, and I even suspected he knew that his grandson had become very important to me, but that didn’t give me the right to be disrespectful in his home. It wasn’t because we were gay either. I would’ve felt the same if we were a straight couple sneaking up to… Couple? I rolled the word around in my head a few times, expecting a negative thought to refute its validity but none came. I discovered I liked the way the word felt, sounded, and even tasted on my tongue. Just because I didn’t speak it out loud didn’t mean it was less true.

When we got to Dare’s room, we silently undressed each other in between soft kisses in the muted light from the lamp on the bedside table. The mood between us was different like we both had realized something important that day: what we shared was poignant and real. There was a confidence in Dare’s hands when he touched me and in his eyes when he looked at me. Did he see and feel the same changes in me?

Even my arousal was different. Rather than the all-consuming fire, it was a slow-burning flame that never seemed to diminish or burn out. It vibrated through me like normal, but new emotions joined the passion: tenderness and a desire for something I didn’t deserve and shouldn’t want. I’d been stingy with my heart for my entire life, giving it only to my mom who had died and a boy who was nearly rejected by his family for loving me. My mom didn’t choose to willingly leave me, but the boy did. I didn’t blame him, but it still hurt, especially when our breakup was only a few months after my mom’s death. I had no one in the world I could count on until I met Jimmy and Danny. I sure as hell couldn’t count on Falcon. Just thinking about him brought on a fresh wave of exhaustion, which killed my arousal.

Dare didn’t seem to mind. He pulled back the sheets and blankets then gestured for me to climb inside. He joined me after I got situated then turned off the light before he rolled over and lay his head on my chest. In the dark, it was easier to find the words that I couldn’t speak to anyone else. Hell, Jimmy and Danny didn’t even know that Falcon was my sperm donor, yet here I was about to tell Dare everything.

“Wren,” he said softly in the darkness. “You don’t have to tell me anything if you don’t want to, okay? If you do want to talk, I promise you that nothing you say will leave this room.”

“I know, Sparkles.” I trailed my hands up and down his back, finding comfort in the rhythm and already familiar feel of my fingers bumping along his spine. “You’d never betray my trust.” I knew it as certain as the sun would rise in the east. No matter what happened between us, Dare would keep my confidence. “Once upon a time,” I began to lighten the mood. I expected Dare to snort, but he giggled. “What?”

“That’s a phrase I use frequently in my head. I tend to work everyday events into fairy tales.”

“Yeah? Who am I?” I asked.

“Prince Charming, duh. Only with longer hair, biker boots, and a beefier body. My prince rides a Harley instead of a horse.”

“Sparkles, I’m nobody’s Prince Charming.”

“You don’t get to decide that,” he said in a singsong voice. “I decide who my Prince Charming is and no one else.”

I ignored the fluttering in my stomach and dug deep for a gruff response. “Fine, but don’t say that I didn’t warn you.”

“Once upon a time…” Dare prompted.

I am a wife and mother to three kids, three dogs, and a cat. When I’m not dreaming up stories, I like to lose myself in a good book, cook or bake. I’m a girly tomboy who paints her fingernails while watching sports and yelling at the referees. I will always choose the book over the movie. I believe in happily-ever- after. Love inspires everything that I do. Music keeps me sane.

Review- Until Sunrise by Sarah O’Rourke

5 out of 5 stars

Another heartwarming book by Sarah O’Rourke. This dynamic duo never fails to make me laugh, be happy, be frustrated, cry, and then feel like I’ve just read a masterpiece. This was a quick read as part of the Aurora Rose Reynolds kindle world, and I believe this series wouldn’t have been the same without Sarah’s contribution.

Michelle didn’t have the picture perfect family growing up which made her weary of any relationships with men. At the age of 25,she’s doing anything to try to lose her virginity. Needless to say, these dating apps aren’t quite what she expected. After waiting for blind date for almost an hour, Luka barges his way to her table and into her mind. She tries so hard to resist, but that Luka is the perfect specimen of a man. There’s no way I would’ve been able to hold out as long as she did.

Luka grew up with parents that were married almost immediately and still going strong 40 years later, so when his eyes land on Michelle, he knows he’s found his forever. Watching this man and his unrelenting pursuit for what he wants just made my heart so happy. Who doesn’t want a man like that?

Sarah has never failed to deliver an alpha male that I haven’t fallen head over heels in love with, and Luka just added to the list. I cried the entire epilogue. It was so beautiful. Another Sarah O’Rourke masterpiece!

Until Sunrise by: Sarah O’Rourke

  1. How did the two of you begin writing together?

We met in an online writing group, found out that we were writing similar type stories and plotlines, and soon became fast friends! After a few months, we started beta reading for each other, and that soon morphed into “Ummmm, just help me out with this one paragraph, ‘kay?” Needless to say, it grew into much more than just a paragraph or two when we started writing whole stories together. That was over 9 years ago…and wow! Life has surely changed so much during that time. We call ourselves Crazy One and Crazy Two — for VERY obvious reasons!

2. Where did the concept for Until Sunrise come from?

Until Sunrise is based in the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World (Aurora Rose Reynolds.) Our characters were very briefly mentioned in ARR’s book Until Ashlyn. We had the great pleasure of giving a romantic (and funny!) backstory to Michelle and Luke that we hope does justice to ARR’s amazing world!

3. What is your favourite type of book to read?

Romance. Romance. And MORE Romance!!!

4. Out of all the books you’ve written, do you have a favourite?

Oh, we’re not supposed to have favorites, right? Well, don’t tell the other little book children, but we are both exceedingly fond of Man of Honor. Zeke is the ultimate hero that we just love to pieces!

5. What is your writing process?

Our process usually starts with a few glasses of wine and a 4-hour phone call. Crazy One usually has some wild-ass idea for an off-the-wall story, so we start with 30 minutes of Crazy Two trying to talk Crazy One out of the latest adventure. It seldom works. Then, Crazy Two resigns herself to 4-6 months of writing hell. (FYI: In case you’re wondering, Crazy Two knows the battle has been lost when Crazy One lets out a war cry of “Bitch, let’s do this thing!”)

At the beginning, we usually talk and talk and talk about plotlines, settings, characters, etc. before the first word is written. Do NOT underestimate the amount of talking that we do. We then make sure that all of our crazy meds are filled and available at a moment’s notice. Then Crazy One will start writing – and after an inordinate amount of bitching, whining, and complaining, she sends the chapters to Crazy Two for review. Crazy Two then drinks a few bottles of wine, puts on her football helmet, and goes to battle with Crazy One over any changes. This can get bloody.

When the book is finished, Crazy Two then edits and rewrites…and sends it back to Crazy One, who has her Momma and the Crazy Crew Street Team read it while simultaneously yelling about the ridiculous and wicked cuts that were made to her precious manuscript. Momma, who obviously was a Grammar Nazi in a previous life, then lectures both Crazies on their lack of knowledge concerning basic English language structure. (Ignore Momma…she’s a little bitter about all those dollars spent on Crazy One’s college education. Hi, Momma!)

In the end, Crazy Two prepares the covers (which usually sends Crazy One into hiding because Crazy Two becomes slightly psychotic during design time. It’s not her fault…no one appreciates how much she SUFFERS for her art!) Then we publish the book and pray. And drink. A lot. There ya go! Does that sound confusing? Imagine how we feel!

6. If you could meet one author, who would it be and why?

Well, we’ve been blessed to meet so maaaaany of our idols recently. BUT…if we were able to turn back the clock, we’d want to meet Margaret Mitchell…hands down. In our opinion, that woman wrote the best alpha male ever to grace the pages of a book. We would love to just have 5 tiny, short minutes with her to pick her brain and find out what motivated her to write Gone With the Wind and how she managed to develop such amazing characters! (And we’re both born and raised in the South…)

7. Where does your inspiration come from?

There’s an old saying that recommends that you “Write what you know.” We’ve taken that to heart, and most of our books are set in the South (southern United States) and are about Southern belles and their kick-ass alphas. Since both of us were born and raised in the South, we’re pretty well-versed in how romance works down here, and we often find ourselves including scenes or dialogue that we have heard or actually said!

8. What are your favourite things about signings? Do you get nervous at them?

Oh, Crazy One is our signing guru. She loves to interact with our current readers and meet new readers! Signings are also a time for to be fangirls and get to meet the other authors that we love and admire!

9. What inspired you to become writers?

We each started for different reasons but ALMOST at the same time. Crazy One started writing in order to deal with her husband’s military deployment. Crazy Two began writing in order to relax from work issues.

10. What are your next upcoming releases?

We’re currently working on Copy Cat, which will be a companion story to our paranormal shifter romance Cat Scratch Fever. Then, we’ll be working on Maggie and Ice’s story (from our Passion in Paradise series.) We’re not quite sure on the title yet, but we do have it narrowed down to two choices! That’s progress for us!

Review – Bound By Love by Red Phoenix

Bound By Love Offical 2

Crystal's review

It’s hard to believe that there have been 17 books in this amazing series. I’ve been reading since right after these books started. I have fallen more and more in love with Brie and her Sir with every single release. We have met some of the most intriguingly divine doms and they have all taken my breath away. From Sir to Noss, from Faelen to Rytsar and all the deliciousness in between, this series has made my heart trip in my chest and made me sigh, sigh, sigh.

Bound By Love is different to for me though. This story seemed to bring everything together. All the struggles, all the unanswered questions… everything was here. The flashbacks, the memories… this wonderful sense of family between Brie, Sir and Rytsar. It was astounding. To see Sir back in his wonderful dominant self and to experience the love that he had for his daughter. No little girl is more loved than Baby Davis. She is special, even down to her name.

And while it may seem that Rytsar is a huge part of this story and he pops in a lot, the truth is that he IS an integral part of the Sir and Brie story. He’s Brie’s knight and protector. He’s Sir’s brother – truer and closer than blood. He should have been in the delivery room. He should care so much for his moye soltnse – his niece, his very sun. Whether they realize it or not, Rytsar is Sir and Brie’s missing piece and watching them together just made my heart so happy. There’s no competition, no animosity, no rivalry for Brie’s love. They both have it and they both know it. It was glorious. It was a bond that nothing and no one could shake. Many had tried – and failed miserably.

This chapter in Brie and Sir’s life was wonderful to be a part of. Sir is still the same sensual, sexy dominant man that he always was but added to that? Fatherhood. And Thane Davis wears it brilliantly. Add also the fact that this man knows with all his heart what he had to lose and how much his wife and family mean to him. For Brie’s part, she is truly a mother but still very much her husband’s submissive. Her bubbly joy tickled me and her passion still knocked me out. She is by far one of my favorite female characters of all time!

There is so much more to Sir and Brie’s story. But not just them. Reading this story and seeing all the many possibilities, I am so excited to continue this journey with these amazing characters! Bravo, Mistress. So very well done!

A sexy and intensely romantic tale from USA Today Bestselling Author Red Phoenix

Our Love is Epic…

My name is Brie, and I am a submissive.
This is my HEA.

In a world of kinky passions, I have found true love with Thane.The sex is incredible, the level of passion unreal!

My heart completely melts when I look into the eyes of our baby.

This is the beginning of my happily ever after, but it will be a fight because there are those who seek to destroy it.

It seems my life is fated to reflect the sensual play I crave.
To enjoy the pleasure– I must face the pain.

Sexy young woman wearing bride lingerie. White bra and panties

img_0285-9

I am guided down a flight of stairs and taken through the hallway to a set of grand double doors.

The doors open up to a luxurious, multi-roomed suite with an impossibly large canopy bed next to a window overlooking a manicured garden. Everything about this place is over the top.

To contrast against the luxurious surroundings, Sir asks me to strip. I look to my left and see a wall covered in mirrors. As I take off my clothes, I catch a glimpse of my naked body. I bow before him, turned on by the fact he still wears an expensive Italian suit.

I am his, to be used according to his will, and I know from personal experience that his will is kinky and ravenous.

“I will not be the only one you please tonight.”

Rytsar enters the room from one of the adjoining areas. The wicked grin on his face and the bulge in his pants alerts me to the fact he is aroused by what Sir has planned for me.

I have enjoyed quite a few scenes with these two, and look forward to them putting me through the paces. But, we are not alone.

Master Anderson walks in, dressed only in blue jeans and his black Stetson. I bite my lip as I gaze up at his manly chest. He tips his hat to me. He, too, appears to be excited about the evening’s events based on the large erection outlined in his jeans.

So it is to be three-on-one tonight. I am curious how it will play out, considering the impressive size of Master Anderson’s shaft. I start to feel tingles of fear and excitement wondering how much my body will be pushed.

That’s when a fourth man enters the room. I let out a gasp when I see who it is.

I am very familiar with Boa and his shaft, having studied it closely during class at the Submissive Training Center, and then later claimed by it during one of my practicums.

Boa is every bit as challenging as Master Anderson.

I brave glance up at Sir, wondering how much he will demand of me.

“Téa, there will be no safeword tonight.”

My heart skips a beat. We have never played out a scene without a safeword before.

“Do you understand and consent?” he asks.

As always, I have control over what happens next. My curiosity outweighs my fear and I answer confidently, “Yes, Master.”

Review – Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan

KRLongShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM

Crystal's review

I’ve tried very hard to put my feelings into words for this book, and words really do escape me. Everything I could say, anything at all seems inadequate for the story that I finished. I’ve been fortunate as blogger to get to read some amazing stories from some truly talented authors. I’ve seen them take risks, delve into controversy and break glass ceilings. All of these things wrapped in true love stories that melt the heart and affirm that some things are worth fighting for.

Long Shot shattered everything I thought I could feel.

It is raw and at times brutal. Honest. Eye opening. Thought provoking. So very real. It left me in triumphant tears and it made my heart ache. Long Shot was filled with cold hard truths and made me look into places that I never believed I would and examine sports culture in ways that I truly never thought of – the ugly, the violence, the cover ups and money used to make thing simply disappear.

Still, underneath of all the ugly, all the anguish and all the anger there is a beautiful love between August and Iris that I envied and coveted. It was magic from the first glimpse and chemistry that flowed like warm honey. These two were meant to be, even if circumstances were working against them. As time passed and they were separated by more than the miles, the bond between August and Iris still grew stronger and more intense. I have to give it to August.  This man was determined and he stayed true to his heart. Always true to his love for Iris. Even in her lowest of lows, Iris found her light in August. There was no denying that the man wearing number 33 was her center.

Long Shot is one of those stories that will stay in your mind for days after it is finished but has marked your soul for much longer. It is brilliant, an emotional ride that left me swaying. Beautifully written words with fantastic characters who simply breathe their truth. There were moments of sigh worthy romance and fan your face and cross your legs steamy sex. There were moments that I couldn’t read. It hurt too much and felt too big. I always came back. I had to. I would not have missed this for anything.

Congratulations, Kennedy. This was everything and a whole lot more. I could not have missed this. Bravo to you!

TEASER2.1

img_0285-9

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”

I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.

“Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.

I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.

And I do.

I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.

He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.

Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.
