REVIEW ~ LOVE PROFOUND By KELLY ELLIOTT 


There are books that you start reading and you just know will consume you, steal your breath, make your heart pound, cry big fat ugly tears, soothe your heart then make you cry all over again with sheer happiness. Well Ms Elliott you have done each and every one of those things to me with this book, I’m not sure what to do with myself. 
The second instalment in the Cowboys and angels series and lord have mercy do they just keep getting better, The Parker family have stole a forever piece of my heart, I could honestly read about them all day. Amelia may be the baby of the family but that girl has sass and determination along with the finest. Wade is a character that right from the start you just need to Love. The story flows with effortless perfection, consuming you and everything around you stands still, nothing else matters, you don’t even realise your sat holding your breath at times or how deep you have fallen into the story until the tears start to roll down you face. 
A 5 star and keep on going stars. 

 

I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

 

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

 

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

 

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Review – Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner

WickedDirty_Ecover_FINAL

Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From my years of devouring this amazing author’s work, I’ve learned several things: A J. Kenner romance is not a story but a SHEER SEDUCTION! As such, this writer’s words always make me sink into her stories. I will ALWAYS ADORE and FOREVER DEVOUR the Starks and their empire of friends and family. I’m devoted to this Stark network of which I’m hopelessly in love.

J. Kenner best summarizes the meaning of the Stark family—and all who cross their path—in her latest sensation, Wicked Dirty:

Honestly, these people are a bit like a puzzle, their lives crossing and overlapping and all of it woven together in a tapestry of friendship and family.

Wicked Dirty CLAIMED and CONSUMED every ounce of me from the very first page. Mind racing. Pulse pounding. Breaths bated. Feels flowing. Eyes wide in anticipation. Heart beating out of my chest. I felt the current of Wicked Dirty flow through me. I was DRUNK on this book that was my fine whiskey, so smooth and spectacular, and could not get enough of this Wicked Dirty drink.

A broken hero and heroine collide, a combustion of chemistry, where barriers are broken and trust is on the line. I LOVED the hero, Lyle, and the heroine, Sugar, both broken and beautiful. 

He touched me—and despite all my defenses, I fell.

_Wd2.1

Beautiful Sugar is sweet like her name, a strong and sassy heroine who I quickly admired. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Sugar wasn’t looking for a broken Prince Charming, Lyle, to rescue her, but the dark knight wasn’t looking for a damsel either.

Lyle is tall, built, and utterly gorgeous. I LOVED Lyle along with his dirty-talking mouth and huge heart! A Hollywood actor, Lyle, is used to disguising himself, wearing an acting mask like a safety shield.

Until one woman sees beneath the mask…

I feel so twisted up inside. Like I can feel his pain—and there’s so damn much of it.

One woman tests his limits…

“What do I want?”

He traces his fingertip along the neckline of the bodice, making me shiver.

“Isn’t that a loaded question? So much. But I can’t have any of it.”

One woman makes him want and feel…

“I want you, Sugar…I want to lose myself inside your heat, and I want to make you come like you never have before.”

_HimTab

HOLY HOT!!! These deliciously dirty words made me WANTON!

Reality and fantasy collide, and it may be the end for the broken prince and princess….

We’re walking a very thin line, he and I. And I’m not at all sure where pretending ends and reality begins.

Wicked Dirty by Julie Kenner wasn’t quite what I expected: it was SO MUCH MORE!!! This love story thoroughly SEDUCED my body, heart, and soul. I shivered in excitement and smoldered in need, as Wicked Dirty made me BREATHLESS! This book BUZZES with energy, as this is a romance YOU’LL FEEL with each seductive word.

Wicked Dirty is hot, heady, heart-pounding pleasure!!! This story is a sensual slow burn that blazed though me everywhere! I was ENRAPTURED with every enticing word. Wicked Dirty is a diamond that is a little dirty at first glance but oh so FLAWLESS!!! INTENSITY and INTOXICATION merge with PASSION and PLEASURE in Wicked Dirty, a ROMANTIC RUSH you won’t want to end.

One of my new favorites by J. Kenner…PURE PERFECTION!!!

💋💋💋💋💋 sensual, soulful, and seductive kisses

Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…

On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.

But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.

Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.

But sometimes love has a price.

And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it?

My blood pounds through my body, my heart beating so hard that I can feel the pressure not only against my ribs, but against the wall behind me. My lips are parted, my breath coming in shaky gasps.

He’s only inches away, so close I could reach out and touch that famous, gorgeous face. His eyes, as deep and blue as the summer sky, roam over me. He eases closer, moving slowly, his face reflecting a hunger that sends shivers through me.

Once again, my mind conjures the image of a hungry wolf. Only now I’m thinking that maybe getting eaten wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Besides, I’m here. Might as well enjoy it.

Then, of course, I remember exactly what it is.

Oh, God.

His fingertip brushes my forehead, and I almost jump out of my skin. I meet his eyes, see something that looks like irritation, and want to kick myself. I need to focus, dammit.

“You were somewhere else.” He speaks flatly, as if he’s working to keep all emotion out.

I shake my head, conjuring a lie. “I’m right here.” And then, because I’ve seen movies with call girls, I put my hand flat on his chest, trying to seem seductive. He’s wearing a gray T-shirt, and I can feel his heart beating beneath the planes of his muscled chest.

I read somewhere that he was getting in shape to play a superhero in an upcoming movie. And kudos to whoever’s orchestrating that transformation, because this guy is rock solid.

He’s still looking at me, and I fist my hand in the material of his shirt, needing an anchor against the storm of emotion I see playing out on his face. Desire. Hunger. Longing. Regret.

And pain. I see so much damn pain that I have to fight the urge to cup my palm against his cheek and tell him that whatever it is, it’s going to be okay.

Instead, I simply whisper, “Lyle?”

I’m not sure if it was the wrong thing or the right thing to say, but I know that it was unexpected. And before I can apologize or cover or say anything else at all, he is on me. One hand at my throat, the other hard on my breast. I’m pinned against the wall, helpless, as he claims my mouth again. Wildly. Brutally.

I try to think what I’m supposed to do—try to respond. But I’m trapped. I’m not Sugar. I’m not Laine. I’m not anyone. This isn’t about sex. It’s about pain and need and that storm of horrors I saw on his face. I might as well not even be here. And as his hand squeezes tight on my breast—as his mouth clashes so hard against mine that he draws blood—my only thought is that I shouldn’t have come at all. That this was stupid. Foolish. And that this night is going to leave me scarred.

I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to be what he wants. A warm body. An anonymous female.

But I can’t do it. I can’t do it at all.

All I can be is me. A woman desperate enough to have sex for money. A girl trying anything and everything to save her house. To protect her family’s memory.

I can be that girl.

But I can’t be nothing. I can’t be no one.

And as his hand tightens in my hair—as he kisses me violently—as his body presses hard against mine and I feel the steel of his erection—I know that I’ve made a terrible, horrible, awful mistake.

Stop!

Review – Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland.


Mannnn, why must Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland be SO FREAKING GOOD? I mean I’m legit running out of good things to say about these two and the magic they write together! Like, this book, features a HOT British Dr who is pure SIN & SWOON! I can’t even!!

In all honesty, I am actually stuck on what to say. I just want to shout that this book was amazing and beautiful and perfect and awesome and everything. Because it was. It was all that and more.  

The writing was seamless. The story line, perfection. The connection of the characters was instant and intense and so believable. I was addicted from beginning to end and devoured it in one sitting. 

Penelope & Vi are unstoppable! I adore them together and apart. Never stop writing ladies, NEVER. #thisbritlovedyourbrit ❤



From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. 

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. 

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. 

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. 

No questions asked. 

Think about it. 

Or don’t. 

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. 

–Simon

Review – Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Juliette Poe

Barking Up The Wrong Tree FOR WEB

Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Juliette Poe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

With each book Juliette Poe brings us in the Sex and Sweet Tea series, I fall more in love!!! Maybe it’s because I lived near the real North Carolina area of this story’s setting but Whynot feels like home. Its residents, these characters that Juliette Poe magically brings to life, feel like family…my family. Juliette Poe transports you to the sweet, small town South where tradition, history, grace, manners, and more rule. Barking Up the Wrong Tree is the perfect light-hearted love story—SASSY and SWEET SOUTHERN GOODNESS!!!

This love story of a Southern gal meets a Yankee guy SWEPT THIS SOUTHERN GAL AWAY!

Beautiful Laken Mancinkus is down-to-earth, a Southern gal full of sweetness and sass! This caring vet has a huge heart but shields it so it doesn’t shatter again. I adored Laken and could be this heroine’s bestie!

“City boy…not sure you belong down here.”

Jake McDaniel is tall, dark, built, and handsome! This former pro football player stands out in the small Southern town, a Yankee with big bucks. Oh did I love Jake!

Laken and Jakes’ paths cross when she comes to his rescue, the vet making a home visit, and its instant fireworks for this couple. 

“You’re flirting with me? I hadn’t caught that.”

“I’ll have to up my game then.”

This Yankee and Southerner MELT when they collide and are MAGICAL together! I felt their chemistry, one palpable connection! 

“I told you we weren’t dating.”

“And I told you it was fine if you keep telling yourself that.”

Jake is determined to break the barrier to Laken’s heart along with other obstacles that stand in their way.

I’m a determined man who always goes for what he wants.

Completely charismatic and charming, Barking Up the Wrong Tree is a captivating read! It’s a little playful and a lot of fun. Refreshing like cold lemonade on a hot summer day, Barking Up the Wrong Tree is sweet Southern romance…no drama…just small town swoon. ENCHANTING and ENDEARING, Barking Up the Wrong Tree is the perfect flirty and feel-good love story that’s smooth and satisfying! 💜

💋💋💋💋 sweet Southern kisses

4 kisses

Things in Whynot, NC have gone to the dogs, and that’s just the way the town’s only veterinarian, Laken Mancinkus, likes it. No matter if she’s up when the rooster crows, or working until the cows come home, Laken never leaves an animal in need. So when a gorgeous Yankee comes begging for help herding some wily goats, Laken is up to the task.

Jake McDaniel is looking for a tax break, and what better way than to take up…farming? This ex-football player turned businessman turned unwitting goat farmer is up to his knees in goat drama. Runaway goats, dehydrated goats, and a baby goat that wants no one other than him, Jake needs more help than he cares to admit. Good thing the sexy veterinarian is right there to coach him on how to be a farmer. The only problem is, Laken’s not looking for anything more than a good time, while Jake is looking for his forever girl.

Will the baby goat, and Laken, be enough to get Jake to stay? Or will he take his tax break and hoof it back to Chicago? One thing is for certain…what happens on the farm doesn’t always stay on the farm.

Juliette Poe is the sweet and swoony alter ego of New York Times Best Selling author, Sawyer Bennett.

A fun-loving southern girl, Juliette knows the allure of sweet tea, small towns, and long summer nights, that some of the best dates end sitting on the front porch swing, and that family is top priority. She brings love in the south to life in her debut series, Sex & Sweet Tea.

When Juliette isn’t delivering the sweetest kind of romance, she’s teaching her southern belle daughter the fine art of fishing, the importance of wearing Chucks, and the endless possibilities of a vivid imagination.

Review – Breathing You In by S. Moose

Breathing You In cover

BBB Keeana review

Heart shattering, beautiful, brilliant and gut-wrenching! This story has stolen both my heart and soul. I could not put it down. S. Moose just has a way with words. Her words are so beautiful and masterful!!

This book OWNED ME. I could not put it down. It had me spellbound! S. Moose’s words are beautiful and shattering. This book will have you on a rollercoaster of emotions. It will rock you. Keep some tissues handy… you will need them, trust me! Get those one-click fingers ready! This book will tear you apart and then maybe put you back together!  You have to read to find out!

Review graphic

This incredible story is one that shook me. It is a story about regret, loss and a grief that encompasses every aspect of life and steals its joy. This is a story of a man who many of thought is a total jerk, a lost cause. Some have even called him a cheater. Reading Logan’s story and then re-reading in parts, I see Logan as a man who is deeply devastated, riddled with guilt and trying everything he can to cope. Even if that means he beds and leaves, drinks to dangerous levels, treats everyone around him with contempt and keeps people at a safe distance.

Grief has no rhyme or reason. It has no timetable. There’s no manual to follow to ease the unbearable sadness. This story is Logan’s way to speak his pain. His way is destructive, cruel to those who care for him. Shannon was the love of his life and their parting was not pleasant. Meeting Hannah finally is a step toward healing his heart and mending his soul. After two years, he finally feels something and in Hannah, he finds a kindred spirit because she has been grieving, too.

Hannah has suffered the loss of not only her brother but the loss of a relationship that she felt would help her move forward. Graduating from college, moving away from a home filled with memories and starting over is just what she needs. Meeting Logan and connecting with him changes her life in such a short period of time. She accepts that Logan is in pain, that he’s not ready to move on but she knows that she wants him and that she wants to be a part of his life. Still, how much can one person take when you’re constantly being pushed away? Still Hannah is a fighter.

Breathing You In is filled with such emotionally riveting moments, powerful realizations and steamy chemistry. When I read the last pages, I had tears running down my face. S gave readers so much in this story, from soaring highs to heartbreaking lows. I saw Logan’s triumphs as well as his setbacks. I felt Hannah’s confusion and her love for this tremendously wonderful but complicated man.

I loved every single moment. Well done, S!

Tragedy brings them together.

Life may tear them apart.

Two years after losing my wife and unborn child, I’m at rock bottom. I blanket my life with addictions to ease the pain.

Until life takes me on a detour, guiding me for a path I never expected.

Meeting Hannah Harris and those enticing deep emerald eyes makes the darkness shimmer and the oxygen in my lungs flow whenever she’s near me. When I’m with her, everything falls easily into place and she relieves the pain, making it easy to live. I’m clinging on to her for solace and salvation.

But how do I find a way to breathe in a new life and love while learning how to exhale the agony of my past?

Review – Drunk On You by Harper Sloan

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005]

Review graphic

C’est un des livres plus chauds de l’année et donc la peine d’attendre! Oh, mon cœur!

Shane Kingston has to be one of Harper’s sexiest leading men. Stripper turned business partner, occassional bartender and spotlight dancer. The man is seriously alpha, a bit of a control freak and what he wants – has always wanted – is Nikki Clark. Only two things stand in the way, or rather two people. That would be their exes Lacey and Seth. These two just can’t seem to let go more than a year after the break ups. Nikki is ready to move on, let loose and learn to have fun. Shane wants to move on, let loose and have fun with Nikki. They’ve always been attracted to each other. Now they don’t have to deny what they want. After one SERIOUSLY sexy dance at Dirty Dog, these two make a deal that’s mutually beneficial and kills two birds with one stone. They get rid of their exes and thoroughly enjoy each others company. A fake relationship for the public but can that really work in private when these two have such a long standing burning attraction?

It’s hard not to love Nikki. She’s a dedicated teacher and friend. She’s beloved by all the Corps Security families and is seen as one of their own. When she gives, she gives everything. There’s no way that Shane can resist his draw to Nikki with her strong independent streak and her need to please and care for those that she loves. She is the perfect submissive compliment to his dominant nature. After a horrible breakup, Nikki wants to enjoy her life and part of that is indulging her needs with the dirty French talking, sexy hips wiggling bartender. It doesn’t take long for these two to see that what they have isn’t just a simply friendship with some great times burning the sheets. This is more and so much deeper than either expected with a lot more to lose. Suddenly what’s supposed to be fake becomes very real.

Insecurities arise and miscommunication takes its toll not only on Shane and Nikki but on their other friendships as well. Shane is a deep well of secrets and past hurts that demand that he have total control in all areas of his life. But what happens when once, just once, he lets it all go? Can Nikki give everything to Shane and finally have all that she’s ever wanted?

I finished Drunk On You with a smile on my face and immediately flipped back to read the ending another time. Then I flipped back to other scenes in the book that made me want more of Shane’s dominating personality and Nikki’s need for him. This trip to Hope Town has been my favorite so far. This book has a mix of everything that has made Harper one of my favorite go to authors – steamy sexy scenes, sweet heartwarming romance, a leading man that wears his alpha so well and a leading woman who I just had to cheer on as she fought for and then got her man. It was amazing to have Nate and Ember back as they supported their best friends in finding their own happy ending. Let’s not forget Shane’s little sister, Liberty. She’s a female version of her brother, strong willed and has deep hurts. I’m so excited to read her story on my next visit to Hope Town.

We may have been disappointed that we didn’t get this book earlier this year, but it was definitely worth the wait. My hat’s off to Harper and the absolutely divine Shane Kingston! Don’t miss this one. FANTASTIC, Harper!

Five Starboy and Mon Colibri Stars!

It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.

One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.

He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.

Review  – Break of Day by Andie Christopher 



This book was everything I hoped for and more.  Two strangers running from their problems,  run right into each other.  They don’t want to like each other,  but fate inevitably had other plans. 
They fight the pull but lose completely. They decide maybe this unexpected twist of fate is worth the fun they could have since its only temporary. It gets hot and steamy,  angsty,  and will ultimately fill your heart to bursting. 

When they head their separate ways,  they have to question what the right decision is because like it or not,  they have a baby on the way.  You will be on the edge of your seat til the end.

Blurb:
One Mistake

Carla Hernandez needs to drop off the glamorous Miami grid. Her aunt’s house in Havana seems the perfect place to get over being dumped by her fiancé—and figure out why she keeps messing up her life. But photojournalist Jonah Kane’s unexpected presence is one sizzling mistake she’s hungry to make.  

 

 One Temptation

Jonah thought his favorite Cuban refuge would help him get some badly-needed peace. Still, he’s ridden out way worse than the tropical storm trapping him with Carla. And he’s going to handle this spoiled little princess on his own dominant, seductive terms just until the storm is over. Too bad this sexy wild card only makes him only want more. And more . . .

 

No Restraints 

Now Carla’s back home—but not quite alone. When her baby is born, she’s going to raise it on her own, no matter how much she still burns for Jonah. But Jonah can’t get over her irrepressible spirit or the passion they shared. And trying to walk away is only making things too hot to resist . . .

Excerpt:
Carla’s skin was melting. Her cotton romper clung to her melty mess of a body in the heat of August in Cuba. Rivers of mascara ran down her face, and she would shank someone for an afternoon in air-conditioning with a stack of fashion magazines.

I just thought being with a redheaded Cuban girl would be more exciting.

Her ex-fiancé’s words echoed in her head for the millionth time since he dumped her and asked for the ring back. She hadn’t thought an accountant’s wife needed to be exciting, but what the fuck did she know about anything anymore?

She smiled at the driver, probably a guy from Tia Lola’s street. He’d picked her up at the airport to bring her to the family home. Lola’s house was a couple of blocks off the stately, crumbling facades along the Malecón. When he’d put her bag in the trunk, she’d tipped him with American money; she’d seen her father do it the last time they’d visited. She clutched her shoulder bag, remembering exactly how much money she had in there. She didn’t usually carry around thousands of dollars in cash.

When the car had pulled up to her aunt’s house, she tried to give the driver more money. In a few words of rapid Spanish, he refused her and smiled. She grabbed her suitcase out of the trunk, took a deep breath, and walked up to the door.

Even though the exterior needed a whole mess of masonry work, the colonial mansion was still impressive. Carla wasn’t sure how it had stayed in the family. She knew that her father’s aunt ran a casa particulare. She rented out some of the bedrooms to tourists for more money than anyone in Cuba could afford, but she wasn’t sure how that was enough to keep the place up—especially since Americans hadn’t been able to come here for fun for almost half a century.

That was changing, and Carla was here to help turn her aunt’s house into a boutique hotel so that her tia could retire and so that her family’s home could sustain itself.

When she knocked, she was expecting her sixty-something-year-old great aunt to open the massive, carved, wooden door. Instead, a giant stood on the threshold. A bare-chested giant with biceps the size of her head. Her mouth popped open—and went dry to be perfectly honest. She made the mistake of looking down, hoping for more clothing. What she found were thighs, just massive thighs, encased in black boxer briefs.

She was going to find her words, eventually. Right now, she just needed a minute. Her clothes felt even stickier on her body, her makeup more melty, and before she humiliated herself by muttering something like thiiiighs, she looked up at his face. That didn’t make the humidity situation with respect to her panties any better because he had the most perfect face. And the most perfect smirk to go with the most perfect face she’d ever seen. And to go along with the perfect brown skin and the—gah—muscles. The only thing not perfect about him was the scar that bisected one of his dark eyebrows and the furrow between said eyebrows.

“Seen enough, princess?” The giant’s voice resonated to her very marrow, and she nearly shivered with the desire to climb him like a tree. She barely registered that he spoke English with an American accent. She didn’t even take exception to the fact that he’d called her “princess.” That should hit a sore spot, but she wasn’t about to let it. Now that she was single, she needed to store this kind of thing up for her spank-bank.

But she knew it was probably better if she said something sooner or later. Before that drool started from the corner of her mouth and after memorizing the pattern of his chest hair. “Who are you?”

“Who the fuck are you?” He reared back a bit and seemed to pull air with him. That’s the only way she could explain following him into the foyer, pushing past his big body without spending too much time trying to cop a feel. Indeed, who the fuck was she, trying to cop a feel of an angry giant? It might be time to admit that she was beyond needing spank-bank material and right in the neighborhood of need-to-get-laid-right-now.

“Where’s Tia Lola?”

“You mean Señora Hernandez?”

“Do you ever answer questions without questions?”

“Only when I get my questions answered, princess.”

“Stop calling me that.”

“Answer my questions.”

She’d had about enough of his bullshit, but she surmised that the best way to get her questions answered was to give him what he wanted. “Okay. No, I haven’t seen enough because I’ve been sleeping with the same guy for three years, and he doesn’t look nearly as good as you in boxer briefs. Or at least he didn’t before he dumped me.” It felt so good to say exactly what was on her mind. With Geoff, she’d always had to watch her words. She took a breath, and continued while he still looked taken aback. “I’m Carla Hernandez. Lola Hernandez is my father’s aunt. I’m here to bring her—something.” She felt like a drug dealer carrying around this much money, but it was impossible to transfer American money to Lola’s bank account in Cuba.  She didn’t want to say money, because while the giant appeared to be benevolent and had certainly made himself at home here, she couldn’t be sure. “Now, who are you?”

“Jonah Kane.” Of course he had to have a name that sounded like he looked. He appeared to be wearing boulders under his skin. Of course his name would be hard, like rock. “I’m here working on a book, and I’m renting a room here.”

“You’re a writer?” she asked, surprised. “I know some writers have crazy rituals to make sure things get done, but leaving the U.S. just to get away from reliable Internet seems extreme.”

“I’m a photojournalist.”

That piqued her interest, but it seemed past due for him to put his pants on. For one thing, his body was going to give her a heatstroke-related seizure if she was exposed to it any longer. He was so hot it was starting to make her mad. For another thing, she could feel his judgmental glare and didn’t like the way he said princess—it was an insult disguised as an endearment, and she didn’t need that.

“Can you please go put some pants on?”

He leaned one hand on the bannister of the stairway leading to the bedrooms, with a sexy, cocky half-smile on his face. “Why? I thought you were getting a great show?”

Carla wasn’t going to rise to the bait of a jerk like that. She’d grown up with two of them—both her father and brother were a handful—so she just pointed upstairs. “Pants now, unbearable ego later.”

* * * *

Jonah stomped up the stairs, still cranky from his rude awakening. Mrs. Hernandez had told him her niece was coming for a visit. He wasn’t sure what he’d been expecting, but it wasn’t the woman who’d showed up at the door.

He’d perked right up when she gave him a slow once over, worrying that he’d have an inconvenient hard-on, one that he couldn’t control, for the first time in years. She wasn’t his usual type. His last girlfriend—if you could call her that—had been a foreign service officer in Kenya. Shannon spoke multiple languages and could handle a bit of rough in the bedroom—hell, she’d loved a bit of rough. Ultimately, the only place they were compatible was in bed, but she was the kind of woman he’d end up with.

Carla Hernandez was a pretty little pixie sprite who reeked of privilege. He wasn’t a big shopper, but it didn’t take a genius to guess that her outfit probably cost more than all the furniture in his New York apartment. She showed up from the U.S. in an all-white little suit thingy—like the kind toddlers wore. If that didn’t say idiotic rich girl, he wasn’t sure what did.

If he’d started in on any of the things he wanted to try with her—pushed her up against the wall and shut up her throaty little cock tease of a voice with his mouth—he’d probably ruin her clothes and maybe crack a rib.

No, the freckled redhead was not his type, but she’d managed to get under his skin in about ten seconds flat, and he hated that. He’d negotiated his way out of getting kidnapped by a terrorist group, and he was having dirty sex fantasies about a woman who would balk at the first hint of a spanking. Maybe he wasn’t being fair, but his gut told him that Carla was trouble, that it would be best to stay away. That pert, upturned nose combined with the deep smoky voice might make her sexy as hell, but he didn’t have time for a regular girl, much less a princess like her. Make him put on pants. He should have dropped his boxer briefs just to see what she’d have done. He smiled at the idea of shocking her.

When he got back downstairs, she was sitting on one of the old, falling-apart chairs in the room that Lola insisted on serving her tea in every afternoon, even though Jonah preferred beer. But, every afternoon he was there. He sat his ass down anyway and drank tea from the chipped service Lola had inherited from her grandmother.

Carla looked fresh and unconcerned as she pressed the cuff of her shorts flat with her fingertip, as if she was ensuring they were still straight. Like a nervous tick. She’d said she was here to give her aunt something, but she hadn’t said what that something was. He’d grown fond of Lola, and he didn’t want anyone taking advantage of her, including her own family.

“What are you really doing here?” His voice was overly harsh, and she jumped. He was usually careful about how he used his voice and his size, which wasn’t necessarily an asset in his line of work. Not many subjects forgot that he was there when he took up so much space.

“I don’t see how that’s any of your business.” She might not see it, but that didn’t matter. He wasn’t about to let any avaricious relatives get at a woman who’d treated him like a son during the months he’d been in Havana. “But, if you must know, I’m here because Lola needs help updating this place.”

Jonah looked around. He could see that, but he still didn’t trust that Carla wasn’t scheming to get this place out from under Lola and ship her great aunt off to some retirement home/purgatory until the woman kicked it. Jonah didn’t trust women with perfectly pleated white shorts or prissy-ass attitudes.

He sat down on the chair opposite her and it creaked in protest. “Doesn’t seem like it needs much updating to me.”

Carla brushed a large strand of red hair off of her face and behind her shoulder, revealing a swath of milky, freckled skin that make him think of summer. Innocence. When he looked up at her face, her plush lips were twisted into a suppressed smile. She’d caught him checking her out. And now she’d be on some power trip about how he wanted her—which, of course, he didn’t.

“It does need updating if she wants to turn this place into a successful B&B once tourism travel completely opens up.”

“She’s never said anything about wanting to do that.” Jonah pulled on his earlobe. “I think this place is charming as is. It’s a historical landmark. You’re probably wanting to tear out everything nice about the place and put in a one-hundred-thousand-dollar bathroom.”

She grimaced. “That’s mighty presumptuous of you. And, like I said, this isn’t any of your business.” She got up on her feet then. Her high heel echoed against the bright, mosaic stone floor.  “Where’s my aunt?”

“Great aunt.”

“I’m well aware of our relationship to each other. Where is she?”

“She’s at the park, playing checkers with her friends. She usually comes back around four and makes tea.”

She mumbled, “I hope she has rum for the tea.” She hefted her carry-on and roller bag and walked out of the room.

He had to fight himself to keep from grabbing her bag and carrying it up the stairs for her. And then he had to fight his hard-on again when she turned around. She might be lean, but her ass was to die for. His heart picked up at the thought of palming it, and an image of her mouth, wide with the shock of taking him inside as he grabbed both half-globes, took him over for a split second. Not even her grumbling something about being a gentleman stopped him from thinking about what she’d look like naked and wanting him.

He did not have time for this shit. 


USA Today Bestselling author Andie J. Christopher writes edgy, funny, sexy contemporary romance. She grew up in a family of voracious readers, and picked up her first Harlequin Romance novel at age twelve when she’d finished reading everything else in her grandmother’s house. It was love at first read. It wasn’t too long before she started writing her own stories — her first heroine drank Campari and wore a lot of Esprit.

Although, she set aside writing fiction for a while, her love of romance novels stayed with her through college, law school, and multiple cross-country moves. During one long East Coast winter, she decided writing a book would be a good excuse to avoid braving the elements. It was love at first write. Her heroes are dirty-talking alphas, and her heroines traded Esprit for Free People. (None of them would turn down a Campari, though.)

I especially recommend for those of you that want a follow up on your favorite couples from the Titan series. I also reviewed the audio version and it was spectacular. You are really able to feel sucked into the story. Great job as always Cristin.

About GONE TO DUST by Liliana Hart

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces – and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their countries, their militaries, and their families.

Sometimes the dead do rise….

Miller Darling is one of the most popular romance novelists of her time. Not bad for a woman who doesn’t believe in romance. She’s as logical as they come, and she doesn’t believe in happily ever afters. What she does believe in is family, so when her brother disappears, she doesn’t think twice about packing her bag and her laptop and heading out to find him.

Elias Cole lived and breathed the life of a Navy SEAL. Now he’s “dead” and his hero’s honor tarnished. The only thing keeping him sane are the men who are like him – The Gravediggers – and the woman who makes his head spin. He’s never met anyone like Miller Darling. Her smart mouth and quick wit keep him on his toes, and damned if he doesn’t find that appealing.

When Miller receives a package from the brother who abandoned her asking for help, it’s clear she’s in over her head with the mess he’s gotten himself into. She needs a professional, and Elias is just the man for the job. Only her brother is a former SEAL – the man who left his team to die – and Elias is more interested in vengeance than saving his life.

About A SEAL’S OATH by Cora Seton

Navy SEAL Boone Rudman and his friends want to create a sustainable community that can be replicated anywhere in the world. But they need land, so when Martin Fulsom, leader of the Fulsom Foundation, offers them Westfield, a ranch in Montana, they agree to Fulsom’s condition that they document their progress on a reality television show.

Building the community will be hard enough, but Boone’s got another problem. Fulsom expects families to make up the population of the new town. Now Boone’s got to find a wife fast, before he loses his funding and his dream. So when he arrives at Westfield to find it already occupied by the startlingly beautiful, strangely attired Riley Eaton, he wonders if fate itself has provided him with an answer.

Riley Eaton is done with traffic jams and 24/7 workweeks. She loves Jane Austen’s novels, and she knows she’s not the only woman longing for a simpler, more beautiful life. When she discovers her friends are in the same frame of mind, she throws caution to the wind and invites them to Westfield, the ranch her uncle inherited long ago but has never lived in. Equipped with a key and a standing invitation to stay there whenever she likes, she gathers her friends, drives to Chance Creek, and gives up all things 21st century in order to open a Jane Austen-style bed-and-breakfast. She knows her absentee uncle will be thrilled with a new stream of income, and Westfield is perfect for Regency living, with its wide lawns, extensive gardens, and large ballroom. But when sexy, stubborn Boone shows up with plans to build a hyper-modern sustainable community on the ranch, it’s clear her Regency paradise is over before it even began.

Now Boone has 30 days to marry Riley or lose the ranch to developers, and Riley has three weeks to prepare for the bed-and-breakfast’s first guests or face bankruptcy. Can they overcome their prejudices to help each other? Or will their pride destroy both their futures?

Review – Play On by Samantha Young

 

Play On Cover

Play On by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Here I sit with my head still stuck in the clouds, stuck in a story that stole me away to another world. I’m still floating on Cloud Nine. Tears are still etched in my eyes, a soulful mix of swoon and sorrow. The feels won’t stop flowing. My soul is still stripped bare from this book. My heart still beats for a book that lifted me up from my everyday life and thrust me to another life across the pond…another world in Scotland. I’m still basking in the beauty of a book that held my heart hostage: PLAY ON by Samantha Young, a romance perfectly synched to my soul with a constant beat of the heart.

Samantha Young’s writing SUCKS YOU IN and makes you stay. Play On captivated me from the start. I was UNEQUIVOCALLY CONSUMED by this romance that penetrated every part of me. Play On is an MESMERIZING and MEANINGFUL MASTERPIECE, one I SAVORED like a fine wine, cherishing each drop. Play On, so HEARTFELT and HEADY, was MY DRUG and I was thoroughly ADDICTED. I WAS ALL IN…body…heart…soul…EVERYTHING!!!

Samantha Young crafted a PERFECTLY IMPERFECT hero and heroine with strength in spades, characters with whom I fell in fast love and ones that instantly claimed my heart. Both Nora and Aidan are beautiful inside out. This hero and heroine are beautifully broken but so perfect for each other, two broken halves that make a whole, so raw that they felt real.

Beautiful Nora O’Brien at a young age has had a tough life…to hell and back. A warrior woman, Nora forges on, gaining strength after each battle life bestows upon her. I greatly adored and admired this heroine!

Nora has been burned and is not looking for a relationship, but sometimes fate has other plans.

And I saw it. What I’d been trying so hard not to see. I saw that he wanted me … like I wanted him.

Aidan Lennox is tall, dark, and utterly handsome. He is a player, a music producer who travels the world with no time for relationships. I LOVED this complex alpha! 

“What am I to you?”

“You? You’re everything.”

Play On Teaser 2

These words were EVERYTHING, so beautiful that I melted all over inside. I SWOONED so hard! I felt ALL OF THE FEELS!

Nora and Aidan don’t make sense together but like a moth drawn to a flame, they are drawn to one another. Two broken souls searching for solace. Two broken hearts longing to become whole. Two beautiful souls connected by feels and fate.

“Why are you fighting this when you want it?”

“Because—” His mouth crushed down on mine, silencing me.

The chemistry between Nora and Aidan is combustible and unstoppable! I felt the hero and heroines’ pull through the pages, a magnetic attraction. 

“I don’t have stubble burn on my cheeks, do I?”

“No. But you’ll most certainly have it between your thighs by tomorrow morning.”

HOLY HOT!!! Aidan’s magical mouth with heated words made me wanton! I was on FIRE along with the hero and heroine! 

Aidan Lennox was going to leave me in pieces.

Play On Teaser

Play On POSSESSED every part of me, penetrating straight to the heart! The push and pull…the angst that bled had me ON EDGE—so ENTANGLED IN EMOTIONS—where I felt everything this hero and heroine did. I felt the unparalleled intensity and intimacy of this romance with the quick rise and fall of my chest, the way my breaths bated, my pulse pounded, and my heart beat out of its chest. 

“If you’re to be mine, I need you to be mine, because all of me is yours.”

Play On is a book that is HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL! Play On’s powerful and poignant words SHREDDED MY SOUL—where I felt stripped bare—as my emotions belonged to this beautiful book from beginning to end. This love story woven in fate and feels struck me so hard as it held my fragile heart in its hands, shattering it to pieces, and then sewing it back together so many times. I BROKE IN THE BEST BEST WAY!

A union of the heart, mind, and soul, Play On is PERFECTION…Samantha Young’s best work yet!!! The beauty of Samantha Young’s writing shines through this book, so full of life, love, and loss. Play On is a love story but SO MUCH MORE; it’s a story of self-discovery, unbridled strength, fate, and hard fought and forever love.

PLAY ON…oh did this STUNNING STORY play me like a beautiful harp—a MOVING MELODY that moved me so much that I still feel every word…every character…every sensation…EVERYTHING!!! This is a love story with so much heart and soul that you’re guaranteed to feel ALL OF THE FEELS!!! I dare you not to feel every word as this romance—so POWERFUL and POIGNANT—plays you in the best way. I FELL IN LOVE…SO MUCH LOVE…OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!💜

“Sometimes the most beautiful things in life are the messiest.”

Nora O’Brien chased a dream from Indiana to Scotland, so sure it was the right thing to do. Three years later she was left in her adopted country with nothing to her name but guilt and regret.

Until Aidan Lennox entered her life.

Older, worldlier, a music producer and composer, the sexy Scot should never have made sense for Nora. But somehow, in each other, they found the light they were looking for, the laughter and the passion—the strength to play on despite their past losses.

But when life dealt Aidan another unlucky hand, instead of reaching for her he disappeared. The agonizing loss of him inspired something within Nora. It fired her spirit— the anger and hurt pushing her forward to take control and reach for her dreams.

Finally pursuing a career on stage while she put herself through college, everything is how Nora wants it. She’s avoiding heartbreak and concentrating on her goals.

Sounds easy but it’s not. Because Aidan is back. And for some reason he hates Nora.

He’s determined to be at war with her. And she has absolutely no idea why.

Review – Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan

DLS Amazon

Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Before I began this story, I had to say…Gasp! My name is Karen and I’ve never met the Filthy Beautiful Lies series by Kendall Ryan. Let’s put it this way: I’ve only met Kendall’s rom-coms so I really had no idea to expect from this other delicious side of Kendall.

I dove into Dirty Little Secret, a story about as far away from a rom-com as you could get, and relished my dive into dark territory. I closed out my world and opened up the Dirty Little Secret world where I quickly fell captive to words that made me their prisoner from the first page.

My first thought after inhaling the Prologue:

WHOA!!! Is this the same author who writes those fun and flirty romances?!? I like the dark and dirtier writer Kendall even better. Dark and dirty romance writing fits Kendall Ryan like a glove: oh so perfectly.

From the first page, Dirty Little Secret is a RUSH, a fervor of smolder and smoothness that strikes hard. Pulse-pounding, breath-bating, mind-mesmerizing, heart-hitting, and soul-searing, this STORY STOLE EVERY SENSE and SEDUCED EVERY OUNCE OF ME. Dirty Little Secret pounds hard with a paralyzing intensity, a HEADY and HOT hit of adrenaline straight to the core that POSSESSES ALL THE WAY!!!

With a burst of fate, a hero and heroine collide, embarking on an intensely captivating cat-and-mouse game that is molten-hot and messy.

All ALPHA Gavin Kingsley is gorgeous, commanding, controlled, and oh-so-sexy. He has an animal magnetism that radiates pure power. I did not want to like this mysterious man, but I could not help but fall hard and fast for this bad boy…scorching HOT in every way. Gavin is a god who will OWN EVERY OUNCE OF YOU!!!

Gavin wasn’t a fantasy. He was a nightmare.

Gavin lives for control that is tested when he collides with a beautiful librarian. I LOVED this smart, sexy, and sassy gal who is done being meek and ready to be bold. 

“You want a man to take control, to make you feel wanted, and you want to feel pleasure like you’ve never imagined.”

Gavin is both sinner and saint, and I could not get enough of this delicious man!!! He exudes sex and sin. I MELTED at his touch through his dominant words. 

“Ride my fingers. Make yourself come.”

This story is SMOLDER and SIN, and I couldn’t SOAK IN THESE SEDUCTIVE WORDS enough. My thighs could not help but clench. My body could not help but blaze. My heart could not help but bleed for this broken and beautiful man. Gavin’s sinfully sexy spell bound me to him where I was helpless to let go.

“Do I frighten you?” he asked, amused.

“Of course not,” I lied.

“Good, because you terrify me, he murmured.”

The connection between this hero and heroine is INTENSE where I felt it through my bones—a shiver through me—a bond with strength in spades. Fire fused with fate. The push and pull had me panting…wanting…needing more. 

If he’d asked, I would have given it to him. Everything.

DIRTY (4)

I was ON EDGE, the energy coursed through me like lighting, fast and furiously. I was POSSESSED. Dirty Little Secret was the predator and I was the prey. Being owned never felt so good!!!

“I never promised you a happy ending.”

Heart-stopping sexy meets seductive suspense in Dirty Little Secret… Kendall Ryan’s BEST BOOK YET!!! Dirty Little Secret is an edge-of-your seat EXPERIENCE, one I could not devour fast enough!!! Kendall Ryan has seriously WOWED ME with her words!!! The plot is possessive and powerful with an invigorating storyline of twists and turns. The characters are captivating with a strong hero and heroine who are combustible together. The writing is intense and incredible, flowing with a heady mix of feels and fire. This romance is SHEER BRILLIANCE from beginning to end!!!

Dirty Little Secret is DELICIOUSLY DOMINANT and SINFULLY SEXY!!! Oh did Dirty Little Secret dominate me!!! This book blazes the body and seduces the senses with an UNPARALLELED INTENSITY felt everywhere. You can’t help but REVEL in the PASSION and POWER that flows from Dirty Little Secret. I can still feel this Dirty Little Secret whispering to me, caressing me everywhere. Dirty Little Secret UNRAVELED ME, this firestorm in words my FUEL. I can’t wait to feel more!!!

I knew this wouldn’t be casual, knew I wouldn’t walk away from this in one piece.

The start to a sexy new series from New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan…

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How am I expected to resist when the sexual sparks zap between us and set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

The story continues in Dirty Little Promise, releasing October 30th.
