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

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

I also must say that I absolutely LOVED IT.

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

One thing Kaylee nails in all of her books are her hero’s. Kaylee writes ALPHA so, so well. Alphas that know what they want, go after it and don’t care who knows. Alphas that make their claim from the start and see it through. Alphas that are POSSESSIVE, PROTECTIVE and OBSESSIVE yet RESPECTFUL and LOVING. Kaylee nails all that and more. In I Just Want You, Kaylee’s hero Crew was sheer perfection.
17499562_1589928704368207_2369503307474306765_n
Crew’s relationship with Berklee was written brilliantly. I felt all of their simmering tension, heart pounding lust and then their intense, passionate love.

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

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

synopsis

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

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

He’s my boss.

She’s my employee.

I want him.

I can’t resist her.

Review – Truth Revealed by KD Robichaux

Truth Revealed Ebook Cover

Review graphic

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

It was worth it. Truth Revealed is perfection.

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

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

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

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

Six Incredible Stars!

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

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

KD

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

Review – Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

DFRM Cover

Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Sometimes you have to play dirty, and oh did Laurelin Paige take me on a deliciously dirty ride with Dirty Filthy Rich Men! Dirty Filthy Rich Men dances in the darkness but leaps towards the light, a magical mix of good and evil laced with sex and sin. This romance rages, smolders, and stings from start to finish, a tingling tale felt everywhere. Dirty Filthy Rich Men is a riveting roller coaster of a romance of tantalization and thrills…pure adrenaline-fueled addiction!

The outside world closed around me, ceasing to exist, as I was captive to the best Dirty Filthy Rich Men. I was tangled and twisted in every part of this thrilling tale from the start!
Pulse-pounding, breath-bating, mind-mesmerizing, heart-hitting, and soul-searing, Dirty Filthy Rich Men is not just a book; it’s an entrancing, electrifying and emotionally-entwined escape into another world…MY WORLD!!! I could not get enough of this deliciously dirty romance that raced through my head, as I raced to turn the pages, where I became dirty too. Dirty Filthy Rich Men was my angst…my ache…my addiction…my ALL!!!


He was a special kind of catnip.

This romance was my catnip. Dirty Filthy Rich Boys was my dark, dirty, and delicious drug…one I did not only want but NEED. I needed this story like air to breathe, as Dirty Filthy Rich Boys became my breath, branding me.

After ten years, Sabrina Lind is reunited with the dark and devilish man who stole her body and still dances in her dreams after so much time apart. Dark-haired, green-eyed, tall, and muscular Donovan Kincaid is both sinner and saint. Deliciously dirty and super rich, Donovan is the ultimate player. 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.



“The problem is that the thing you really want to stop isn’t me, it’s how you react.”

Donovan’s dominant words possessed me, lighting a fire that burned from head to toe where I MELTED like molten lava.

Sabrina and Donovan’s cat-and-mouse game was amplified, more racy and risky than ever. So THRILLING where I could not stop the surge of power from this story that permeated through me. 

I had the impulse to slap him, but it was lost when his mouth crashed against mine. Then I couldn’t think about anything but him—his hands, his body, his victory over me. It was such an easy surrender.

I could not help but combust from this fire-hot kiss that raked over my body as if I were floating over hot coals…so heated…so hot! The push and pull had me panting…wanting…needing more. The connection with Donovan and Sabrina was INTENSE, I felt it through my bones—a shiver through me—as their link was so strong that even if these two opposites were separated, the connection would be felt in spades. 

We were a set, bound together by Cellophane. It smothered, making it hard to breathe.

A thrilling and tantalizing tale of deliciously dirty players, Dirty Filthy Rich Men is a cat-and-mouse game of epic proportions, a HIGH felt all the way to the sky! Hudson may have to make room for Laurelin Paige’s most intense alpha yet!!! Donovan delivers the dark and dirty, and I want to bathe in his delicious darkness covered in dirt!

Dirty Filthy Rich Men is intense, intoxicating, and invigorating, a rush of adrenaline and angst straight to the core! This scintillating story SEDUCED ME…everywhere. I could not help but feel every word I read and live every part of this delectable and daring adventure. I LOVED this brilliant book so hard! Dirty Filthy Rich Men blazes with fire—bleeding angst— and oh did I get BURNED in what is Laurelin Paige’s best book yet!!! I still need another hit or ten of this delicious drug.

Oh Laurelin Paige! I am so addicted to this scintillating story and series that OWNS every ounce of me! So incredibly good! I could not devour this heart-stopping sexy and strong story fast enough. The plot is powerful, the characters are combustible, and the writing is off-the-charts incredible, flowing with a heady mix of feels and fire. Laurelin Paige has brought her A-game out to play in Dirty Filthy Rich Men, a gem that is as stunning as it is dirty. Oh did I love getting dirty!

★★★★★★ scintillating super stars

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.

From NYT Bestselling author Laurelin Paige, discover a whole new world filled with sex, love, power, romance and dirty, filthy rich men.

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

Review – Unprofessional by J.D. Hawkins

Unprofessional Cover

Unprofessional by J.D. Hawkins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The best relationships begin as friendships.

When fire meets friendship, burning with the flames of desire, that friendship ignites and goes BOOM! Friends to lovers…ahhh…what a perfect match…my perfect match! J.D. Hawkins is a master of friends-to-lovers tales. Hawkins infuses his romances with the perfect amount of sweetness, spice, sarcasm, and swoon along with a little angst that make for riveting reads that rock readers’ worlds. Unprofessional is a fresh, flirty, and forbidden friends-to-lovers romance that is full of fire!!!

Unprofessional lured me from the very first page. The conversational style writing—so raw and real—CONSUMED ME!!! This sizzling and sugary story SEDUCED ME where I was under its spell.

Beautiful, brunette, green-eyed, and curvy Margo has maintained a platonic relationship with her hot best friend, Owen, for years…years!!! Owen with his tall, muscular body and dark hair. Owen who is a man-whore, sampling women like fine wine. Owen who has a huge heart. Owen who is all alpha and definitely delicious. Owen knows that his best friend is beautiful, but so off-limits, especially since Margo is his co-worker.

One drunk night, limits were tested…

I realize I’m still drunk—or at least I tell myself that, because this feels so good I need an excuse not to stop.

Now that they have had a taste test, Margo and Owen want more….

Suddenly he sweeps close, lifting me out of the chair to clutch my body to his, crushing his lips on mine to kiss me in a way that makes everything disappear. A kiss that says more than a thousand words ever could.

This kiss was intense, intoxicating, and in depth, capturing more than words. Its passion penetrated me, making me melt all over.

Lines are blurred, and remaining professional may be the toughest test of all.

This sweet and sexy story SEDUCED EVERY OUNCE OF ME, hitting all of the right spots.

Unprofessional is FIRE-HOT and FUN with its fresh setting of BuzzFeed-like atmosphere, captivating characters, serial dating, and forbidden office romance…A PLEASURE TO READ. I loved the long history and connection between Margo and Owen, their fierce friendship was truly powerful and endearing. Though I would have loved to have seen more dialogue between Owen and Margo, and a heavier dose of feels, more emotions from these main characters.

J.D. Hawkins WOWs readers once again with witty writing that is raw with characters that feel real. Slaying both male and female viewpoints, J.D. Hawkins’ Unprofessional flows with a natural ease, so smooth and seamless. The catchy and conversational style of Unprofessional ENTICED and ENTERTAINED me. I CRUSHED on this office romance HARD! Unprofessional was unputdownable.

“Wild horses. They sound a lot like you.”

“Like me?”

“Yeah. Wild and free, right up until they meet the right person to tame them.”

What happens when the internet’s favorite playboy falls in love?

I have the best job in the world. Date beautiful women and write about it.

But I want to take it to the next level: instead of writing about my experiences make it into an online reality show.

But here is the catch. My boss wants me to share the show with a woman co-host. And he wants that woman to be my best friend and co-worker, Margo.

I’ll date beautiful women and she’ll date hot men. Sounds fair enough.

So now I have to watch her fake date hot men. I used to love going home with a different woman every night, but suddenly this isn’t as fun. Seeing Margo with anyone else is driving me crazy.

And the more time I spend with her working on the show, the less I want to keep our relationship in the friends’ zone. And the harder it is to stop myself from imagining her bent over the copier.

Things are about to get unprofessional.

Review – Avenged by Jay Crownover

Avenged Cover

Avenged: A MacKenzie Family Novella by Jay Crownover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Light is easy to love. Show me your darkness. ~R. Queen

I love books bathed in darkness with a sliver of light, as they dig deeply into the depths of hell but somehow find a bit of heaven. Jay Crownover is a mix master of black, shadowy stories that still shine like gold, such as her latest romance, Avenged. Avenged is the perfect fusion of light and dark, heaven and hell, and sin and salvation. Scorching and spine-tingling, Avenged is the newest Jay Crownover sensation that is full of soul and steam!

This story struck me hard like lighting immediately, feels threatening to flood like a dam ready to break. I was CAPTIVATED from the first page, as Avenged UTTERLY CONSUMED ME, eclipsing me like the sun and the moon as this book covered me with darkness and light. This intense and incredible story cut through me like a knife. I was on edge with bated breaths, heart racing, hoping that the light would surpass the dark. Tears fell like raindrops, preparing for a storm, but praying for the sun.

“When you let a wild animal out of a cage, it can be impossible to control.”

“I’m not worried about getting bit. In fact, I’m kind of looking forward to it.”

Avenged is a fractured but fierce and fire-hot fairytale. This is the story of a troubled Snow White and a tainted Prince Charming. Fate brought them together, a man and a woman who toe the line between dark and light, and now must find salvation. Two broken souls who, when joined, become whole. However, the past may strike and tear them apart before they find heaven among the pits of hell. 

“We were supposed to be here. We were supposed to save each other.”

Avenged sank into my soul, stamping itself everywhere, as this tale imprinted me with words that became feels. I felt ALL OF THE FEELS. I FELL HARD for Avenged a story that shook my soul with a force I did not see coming, but one that engulfed every emotion like a raging inferno. I LOVED every pulse-pounding minute! The mash-up of characters from several series was fresh and fun, making this story unique, but then again, Jay Crownover’s books are always one-of-a kind…just like her.

A master painter of stories of dark bled with light, I love Jay Crownover’s tales that are tarnished but so perfectly imperfect. Jay Crownover is one of those wondrous writers of brilliant books that break you, bind you, and brandish themselves to you forever. It’s that ‘Crownover Crack’ that hits me hard each time, where I’m rendered with the worst—yet best—emotional hangovers. My Avenged ride through heaven and hell was a riveting roller coaster, one I’d do again in a heartbeat.

She was the promise of everything that could be.

New York Times bestselling author Jay Crownover brings heat and heart to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with AVENGED…

Girl meets boy…

On the worst night of her life when she’s decided to take a drastic step that there is no going back from.

Girl is used to sitting by, letting fate deal cruel hand after cruel hand to good people with soft hearts and she’s had enough.

Girl thinks it’s time to fight back against fate and against men who aren’t careful with all the precious things a woman in love has to give him.

Fate shows girl who’s boss and turns her world and plans upside down without breaking a sweat.

Boy meets girl…

On the best night of his life when he’s decided that he’s going to make moves to be the man he was always meant to be instead of the man he was trained and conditioned to be.

Boy is used to a solitary life, quiet in the woods and knowing the only thing that might be looking for him is trouble and trouble is no longer his stock in trade.

Boy thinks it’s time to show trouble who’s boss, even if this trouble has big blue eyes and a body made to make men stupid. Trouble only gets the upper hand if the boy falls prey to its temptation.

Trouble turns the boy’s quiet, serene life sideways without any effort.

Trouble is fun and fate has a wicked sense of humor when it comes to this boy meeting this girl.  

excerpt

She might be Snow White, but there was no way in hell I was anything close to Prince Charming, or any fairytale prince, for that matter. Hell, I wasn’t even the Huntsman that showed mercy and refused to end an innocent life. I was more along the lines of the Big Bad Wolf. I lay in wait for my prey, ready to pounce, all while wearing a civilized front that very few could see through. I had sharp teeth and even sharper claws and I’d been using both for as long as I could remember.

The old me would eat this girl up without a second thought. I would have left her to her fate in the snow. I was impressed as hell with the way she popped up to her feet, with all types of adorable indignation and sexy pride radiating off of her, even though she was obviously hurting and about to fall over.

I was the old me as recently as this morning.

I was the old me until I looked in the mirror after my shower and finally took the time to examine the still-healing slice across my throat. In a rare moment of clarity, I realized how close I had come to meeting my maker. The wound had been there, healing for months, but today was the day I really saw it and realized I no longer wanted to be the kind of man that deserved to have his throat slit open every time he was distracted and not on the defense. There was no way I would have a halo waiting for me on the other side; I had known that for a long time. It was always bound to be horns and a tail for me because I’d been actively courting my own corner in hell for as long as I could remember. I was the guy that had waterfront property on the lake of fire but I no longer wanted to watch the world burn. Those flames got too close and they were leaving scars on more places than my neck.

I wasn’t a guy that deserved a second chance.

I wasn’t a guy that deserved redemption.

I wasn’t a guy that deserved forgiveness.

I wasn’t a guy that deserved compassion or pity.

I wasn’t a guy that should have been rewarded with a shot to redo and retry everything I had done wrong…but I was a guy that was given that shot. And for whatever reason this morning, while I was looking in the mirror, I told myself it was time to stop squandering it.

I could be the guy that deserved forgiveness. I just had to work at it…harder than anyone else ever had.

Review – One Final Breath by LK Collins

One Final Breath eBook

Review graphic

This story truly made me think and then ask myself… As a mom of two small boys, what would I do if I found myself in Faye’s situation? So suddenly my world is thrown into chaos as the man that is my whole world disappears before my eyes and leaves me and his boys behind. How would I find the strength to move forward?

The prologue to One Final Breath left me in tears and so lost that I pulled those that I loved that most closer. It was a pain that shook me to my core. Time is so fleeting. Circumstances can change without even a warning.

Faye’s story is one of heartbreak and profound loss. Her husband Ben was everything. He was the center of her universe. How do you go on when everything is gone? Faye knew that she had to go forward – she had her son to think about. She had to show him that she could be strong. She doesn’t have time for love or a relationship. She throws heself into her art and strives to make a stable home for Braxley. Then chance happens and she meets a man who makes her feel something more than sadness, more than emptiness. But how can she feel good when her love is gone?

Thane’s story is also of heartbreak and loss. A failed marriage on its last days and a son that he has become the sole caretaker for. He’s leaving behind a sad unfilled life to build something positive for Jack. Thane is hoping that positive also includes a grieving beautiful artist and her precious son who in one short meeting has become Jack’s closest and dearest friend.

Thane is perfect for Faye and watching them grow their relationship and their blended family come together was amazing. He is a balm to her pain, giving her the courage to face losing Ben. He’s a blessing that she never expected to have – and she slowly begins to believe that Ben would want her to have this second chance at love. With Faye, Thane can let go of his past and look past his anger. He can have it all with Faye – friendship, laughs and a deep true love. A solid family and a red hot chemistry! These are so sexy together! Mercy!

This was such a story of love triumphing over loss. This is the story of two types of grief and the process of accepting that life and love may not always go as we have hoped, but if we are fortunate we can find the happiness that we’re always meant to have. This is one beautiful love story that you don’t want to miss!

One life.
One choice.
One love.
Sometimes it’s all we get and one moment could change it all.

I hate the number one—it haunts me; my every waking moment is a constant reminder of what I lost.

One day, I met a guy and I fell in love.
He asked me one question…I said yes.

Our life was perfect…until one day everything changed.

I watched him slowly slip and fade away.
The one person I loved, my best friend, my partner, my everything, was slowly dying right in front of my eyes.
The doctors said he had one year left; he only lasted one month.
As I held on to his hand, he took one final breath and slipped from this world.
Leaving me; one woman, one broken heart, one child to show the world to…all alone.

This is my story about the power of one…

I’m not sure what it is about him, but for some reason since we met, he’s consumed my thoughts. He takes the pain away—he makes me feel sane—he makes me feel like there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel I’ve been living in for so long.

Review – The Brave Line by Kate Stewart

The Brave Line by Kate Stewart 

My heart is pounding.

My palms are sweaty.

My skin is tingling.

My soul is singing.

Everything inside me is on fire. 

I am ridiculously happy. Floating high on a mighty blissful cloud of EPIC bookworm feels! I’m struggling to find words. I’m struggling to fully describe how perfect this story is. I don’t know how to really make sense of all my feelings in a way where people will understand. I’ve read all of Kate Stewart’s books and this book is without doubt her best yet. The Brave Line is OUTSTANDING

Everything about The Brave Line will just burn you to the core. It will cover every base, tick every single box and steal every part of your heart. I kid you not, you will FEEL IT ALL. There is no emotion you will not experience. When a book can be heart breaking but heart warming all at the same time you just know you’ve got yourself a winner. 

The Brave Line follows Michelle and Rowdy. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing these two are as individuals AND together. Both are incredibly broken, heavily influenced by very different pasts. Yet they are sensational in every way possible.

Michelle was a surprise to me. I never expected a character with such depth. Michelle stole my heart, almost immediately. I didn’t care that she wasn’t always perfect. I didn’t care that she had flaws and she wore them on her sleeve. I simply didn’t care because to me, Kate wrote her in a way that was understandable. We follow Michelle, we learn her past, we learn her pain and it made me FEEL for her, love her. 

I’m not sure where to begin with Rowdy. Everything I want to say about him would probably mean I was here until the end of time. I loved him that much. The guy attached himself onto my soul and wouldn’t budge. But then I wouldn’t want him too either. Rowdy is beautifully broken, built from devastation and pain. His hard exterior mixed with his want and need for better made him undeniably perfect. Rowdy rocked my world with his wicked ways and sinful mouth. Imagine my delight when the hot cop was also a dirty one. *praise hands* Even when Rowdy was being a total royal pain in the butt I adored him. Like Michelle I was drawn to him. And will remain drawn to him indefinitely.

Together though, together they consumed me. Together they wrecked me. Together they made me so happy. Nothing came easy for them, yet they worked. This book didn’t need any unnecessary drama from outside sources, Rowdy and Michelle had enough personal roadblocks to deal with and here is where Kate played on the passion and intensity of the characters. The relationship between them is tense and raw while being incredibly hot, but it’s also devastating and I spent so much time WISHING, FEELING, getting wayyy too emotional over the fact that their heartbreak was stopping them from finally being happy.
But by the end, the powerful, heartbreaking journey that I’d been on ended on the most blissful high. I’m not sure whether I devoured this book or it devoured me. My heart and soul have been tugged around, broken and rebuilt impeccably. I am so in love with this book that I don’t want to pick up another. I’ll happily remain in hungover state for a while. And no, I won’t feel bad about it, because The Brave Line is flawless perfection and will undoubtedly be one of my top reads of 2017.

She is a five foot seven long list of things he can’t have.

He is a determined cop, desperate to keep his heart sealed behind his badge.

Michelle is a survivor. With a fresh perspective on life, she trades her tragic past in California for the coastal waters of Charleston. Fueled by a new career as a dispatcher, she’s determined not to let her scars weigh her down. She apologizes for nothing, especially her insatiable need for a certain police officer.

Rowdy is a newly minted sergeant dedicated to his job, but the life of a Charleston police officer has never been more dangerous. With his need to take order of a city spiraling out of control, the last thing he wants is an entanglement with a mouthy dispatcher. But, there’s just one problem. He can’t get enough of her.

As the heat rises between the unlikely pair, so does the tension.

Three months of summer was all it took to shake their foundations, rattle their walls, and bring them crashing down.

It was lust.

It was love.

It was real.

And it would have been perfect . . . if it wasn’t already over.

Note to reader:

This book has several elements and explores topics that some may consider triggers. For mature audiences only. Explicit sex, violence and language.

Review – Devil You Know by L. A. Fiore

Devil You Know by L.A. Fiore

There are times when I pick up a book and read it, immerse myself in it and then get really, fricking annoyed with myself. Because after reading a book like this, I wonder why I’ve never met this author’s work before, why I’ve never drowned in her words before. I will forever read ANYTHING this author puts out going forward. This one book, Devil You Know has solidified my love for all things LA Fiore.

I’ve seen this book shared around lately, it caught my eye for sure but it wasn’t until a very trusted book friend raved about it that I decided I just HAD to pick it up. And now, I totally understand what she’s raving about because this book is PHENOMENAL. I honestly don’t think anything I write in a review will do the book justice. Just know that this book enveloped me, consumed me, broke me, healed me and above all else FUCKING OWNED ME! 

Devil You Know is laid out so perfectly, so flawlessly. Everything about it is just EPIC. From the delightful, swoony butterflies that root themselves deep inside to the raw, intense, heart pounding suspense, to the overwhelming love that sizzles underneath it all, I was DONE FOR. Hooked so hard, pulled in so deep that I couldn’t come up for air. I didn’t even want to.

Damien and Thea have an undeniable pull. A connection so deep, it was hard not to get wrapped up in them, with them. They were everything I wanted and NEEDED them to be. The angst and tension that oozes from this book and it’s characters was STRONG. BREATHTAKING. And I LOVED IT. 

Devil You Know will undoubtedly be up there in my TOP reads of 2017. Infact, it’s up in my TOP reads, period. I want to rebel and not give any star rating because IT DESERVES MORE than I could ever give! L.A. Fiore has a new fan FOR LIFE!

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length. 

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me. 

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Review- Papi by JC Valentine

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

OMG JC. How did you manage to cram so much hotness into a short little book? It was oh so hot and oh so sweet.  I definitely need MORE!!!

I’ll be waiting ever so patiently for more of their story. Lord knows this was a tease and leaves you wanting more. 


A scintillating standalone novella based on a true story coming soon from bestselling author J.C. Valentine.

 

Dating is hard.

Especially when it’s a younger man.

Alejandro is everything I ever dreamed of:

Sexy.

Driven.

Dominant.

He’s my Spanish lover.

My every fantasy come true.

My weakness.

And he wants me. All of me. Maybe even more than I have to give.

But the way he talks to me…looks at me…touches me drives me crazy in the best way possible.

And he knows it.

He knows the power he holds over me…and he wields it like a blade…

Straight through my heart.

Everything I have, everything I am, is in his hands…

Because Alejandro is everything and nothing I expected.

He may be my downfall…

But I am more than eager to take the plunge.

Review – The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan

PM Cover

The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The best relationships begin as friendships.

When fire meets friendship, burning with the flames of desire, that friendship ignites and goes BOOM! Friends to lovers…ahhh…what a perfect match! My perfect match was Kendall Ryan’s latest love story: The Play Mate. The Play Mate is friendship on fire, a romance that burns the body and melts the heart. Oh did my HEART MELT!!!

The Play Mate enticed me from the very first page. This sweet and sexy story seduced me where I was under its spell. I was ENTICED and ENAMORED. The Play Mate was playful, and oh did I want to play with this chemistry-clad cat-and-mouse game.

Beautiful, blonde, green-eyed, and curvy Edie has lusted after her older brother’s best friend, Smith, for as long as she can remember. Smith with his dark hair, hazel eyes, tall and muscular body, and all-alpha personality is the perfect catch. If only Edie could catch him that is…

Edie has been a bit sexually deprived and wants an experienced lover if even for a night. Her mission: Get Smith to let go of Edie the best friend’s sister, embrace the woman, and give her the big ‘O.’ 

“I just wanted to have one orgasm that wasn’t supplied me.”

Oh did I LOVE Edie! She is a gal who goes after what and who she wants, so brave and bold. The game is on and Smith’s challenge is to stay in the friend zone and ignore the goods. Perhaps a sample won’t hurt…

“I didn’t know I was starving until I tasted her.”

YES PLEASE!!! Smith’s words lit a fire inside of me, oh was his mouth delicious and dirty! Edie and Smith’s friendship is full of sparks that are ready to ignite into a firestorm.

Their chemistry sizzles, a powerful potion of friendship and fire. This game is not over until lines are crossed from the friend zone to more. Will these friends risk getting burned?

“Major crash and burn ahead or not, I was committed to staying on this ride.”

The Play Mate SEDUCED ME where could not help but surrender to its sweet and sexy spell. This story of friendship on fire burns the body and melts the heart. I’m still BURNING from The Play Mate. I’m MELTING from Smith’s tantalizing and tender words. I’m melting for MORE.

You can’t help but FALL IN LOVE with a Kendall Ryan romance, a feel-good love story laced with humor, heart, and heat delivered in a raw and real format that FEELS RIGHT. The Play Mate FELT SO RIGHT AND SO GOOD. The story made me smile, smolder, and swoon, sensations I felt IN SPADES. The Play Mate, this melt-in-your-mouth romance, was my chocolate chip cookie…so sweet, decadent and delicious.

Heart-stopping sexy and sugary sweet, The Play Mate is a delicious ROMANCE TREAT! The heated banter, the enticing innuendos, the combustible chemistry, the angst, the romance, and more make The Play Mate the PERFECT PACKAGE. I’m not ready to stop playing with this package.

Smith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.
