Review – Fortuity by Rochelle Paige

Fortuity - eBook

Crystal's review

I have heard amazing things about Rochelle Paige and her great stories. I have never had the pleasure of reading her. I could not have picked a better introduction to Rochelle than this book. It truly blew me away. Faith and Dillon’s love story is beautiful, emotional and it seems that these two were fated to be together, to heal each other and to find the happiness that had eluded them both for quite some time.

I’ve read a lot of strong women characters. Their stories have ranged from as fantastic as healthy relationships to the worst possible abuse. Faith’s story as a young child in the foster care system slayed by heart and battered my soul from the moment I met her. Neglect at the hands of her mother and a foster family, Faith finds herself at death’s door but is given a second chance when she receives a transplant. Grabbing her life with both hands she taps into her inner strength and makes her life count. She left me so stunned and so grateful for my own well being. I rooted for her and demanded her happiness with every word that I read.

Dillon has had his own losses and engages in very high risk behaviors to cope. When his mother and father rescue him once again, the deal made brings a former foster kid into his life and changes his life in ways that he could not imagine. Thanks to Faith, Dillon begins to understand how precious life is and how the things he has taken for granted can change everyday life for Faith. The bond and the chemistry between these two was incredible. This time and experience he has had with her is simply eye opening. Not only for him but for me as well.

The ending of this book floored me! I sat and shook my head in disbelief and I am so anxiously awaiting Serenity to hit my kindle so I can finally see how the love story between Faith and Dillon ends. This duet is set to be one of my favorites this year! Rochelle Paige is so wonderfully talented. Her words are incredible and I’m just sorry that it has taken me this long to discover her. But since I have messaged her a million times while reading Fortuity, she’s got to realize she has a new fan in me!

FANTASTICALLY DONE, Rochelle!

Fortuity - Teaser 2 (1)

FB_IMG_1494244628116.jpg

The only kinds of luck I knew were bad and worse…until my life hung in the balance. I finally caught a break in the form of a second chance.
I vowed not to let it go to waste.
To make a difference.

But I didn’t start really living until I met him.
Dillon Montgomery.
My complete opposite—except for our matching tortured souls.

I couldn’t resist him for long.
How could I when his smallest touch made my heart race?
When it felt like we were destined to be together.

But sometimes luck and sorrow are intertwined…

Fortuity is the first book in the Fortuity Duet.

Fortuity - Teaser 1

img_0285-9

Dillon twisted his neck and flashed me an apologetic grin over his shoulder. Unwanted butterflies swirled in my belly, and I quickly yanked my hands away from his shoulders and took a step backwards. His eyes flashed with male satisfaction and his grin grew wider. Determined to ignore the impact he had on me, I shifted my focus to the students. “Your test date is coming fast, so you’ll need to squeeze in as much extra study time as you can without neglecting your regular coursework. Maybe set aside some time during Thanksgiving break when you don’t have as much homework.”

“Ugh. Studying over break sucks,” one of the girls complained.

“Yeah, but you guys are in the homestretch. This test score is one of the last things you need to get into college. Trust me, it’ll be worth the extra effort.”

“I guess if you could get into college while recovering from a transplant, then the least I can do is a little bit of studying over a holiday break that isn’t even that big of a deal since I don’t have a family to celebrate it with anyway.”

The other kids nodded in agreement, and I snuck a peek at Dillon while everyone finished packing up. His brown eyes were wide with shock. I quickly looked away before he could ask me anything, and focused on saying my goodbyes as the kids all headed out. We both kept quiet—for which I was incredibly grateful—as Dillon helped me clean up the room. When we were back on the road, I turned to him and asked, “Were you really teaching my kids how to count cards?”

His lips tilted up at the edges. “Maybe just a little.”

“It’s a good thing none of them have any money to gamble or else they might learn to enjoy blackjack as much as you do.” His lip tilt turned into a full-fledged grin, and I glared at him.  “I don’t know why you’re grinning at me! Look at what your affinity for gambling got you.”

“What?” He pointed at his face. “The black eye?”

“Yeah, for starters.”

His grin grew into a blinding smile. “It was worth it.”

“What? Why?”

“Because it’s the reason I met you.”

Shit. Those damn butterflies took flight in my stomach again.

Review – Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

Birthday-Girl-EBOOK

Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



”Time passes by you like a bullet … Don’t doubt yourself, don’t second-guess, don’t let fear hold you back, don’t be lazy, and don’t base your decisions on how happy it will make others. Just go for it, okay?”

For three years, I’ve quietly hoarded Pen Douglas’ books on my kindle, books remaining in the dark, intending to read them, and, regrettably, never doing so UNTIL NOW. Until I decided to finally to bring Penelope Douglas’ words to the light. Until I picked up Birthday Girl and COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. Until I realized how the power of Penelope Douglas’ words pulled me in—line by line and feel by feel—where they tugged my heart and splashed my soul across the pages. Until I finally realized what I’ve been missing.

BIRTHDAY GIRL… JUST WOW, WOW, WOW! Birthday Girl is the most sumptuous of slow burns, A BURNING INTENSITY felt everywhere! It’s a HEADY HIT of FORBIDDEN PLEASURE that pierces straight to the core. MY BODY TINGLED at the tension that taunted me, holding me in its grasp, tension so thick you could cut it with a knife. I ATE UP that angst, every last delicious drop.

Birthday Girl Teaser

Fear and longing, turmoil and need.

We want it, but we know we shouldn’t.

I loved the slow-burning plot that was UTTERLY ENGAGING and paced to perfection. The characters have charisma in spades and were so compelling—drawing me into their story deeply—that I fell hard for them. This melt-worthy hero OWNED me. Pike is a hot god with a heart of gold. So sexy and all alpha. Just YES! Jordan is the perfect pairing with Pike, a beauty who is wise and witty. Their chemistry was palpable and the build-up of their romance had me on edge! I was almost UNGLUED. OH SO GOOD!

”I want you to want me.”

Birthday Girl Teaser 2

Heart-stopping sexy meets pulse-pounding pleasure in a tale that is TABOO TO THE MAX. Birthday Girl is one SCORCHING HOT HIGH!
This forbidden love story is a SLOW SEDUCTION in words. Oh was I wholeheartedly seduced! Hook. Line. Sinker. Penelope Douglas takes you on a tantalizingly taboo, thriller of a ride that bleeds angst and renders you breathless where you’re begging for more Birthday Girl. I was so DRUNK ON BIRTHDAY GIRL. I LOVED EVERYTHING about Birthday Girl, a BANG-UP BOOK! So much LOVE. I. NEED. MORE!

”If I know you want it, too, how will I be able to resist you?”

JORDAN

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.

He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe.

He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.

I have to stop this. It can’t happen.

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable.

Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one.

I am.

PIKE

I took her in, because I thought I was helping.

She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement.

As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to.

The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me.

But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight.

And her boyfriend’s father.  

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.

*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.
img_0285-8

Pike and Jordan get back late from mudding and are hosing off in the backyard.

JORDAN

I drop the hose to my side and drag the fingers of my left hand down his abs, my heart pounding so hard it hurts. They tighten as my nails slide across the muscles, and I’m so afraid to look at him.

This is wrong. I know it’s wrong.

But God, he feels good. I can feel his eyes on me, and every thread of my bra is chafing my skin, and I just want to be bare right now. I want him to see me.

I close my eyes. Oh, God.

“Jordan…” He grasps my hand, and I can hear him breathing hard.

I nod, opening my eyes but still unable to meet his. “I know,” I breathe out. “I’m sorry.”

I’m parched, my eyes sting with tears and I don’t know why, and there’s a need between my thighs that is almost painful.

Slowly, he tips my chin up. I finally raise my gaze, but he’s not looking at me, either. His eyes are cast down, and his brow is pinched in pain. “You’re just out of sorts,” he says quietly. “You miss Cole, and I just happen to be here. It’s okay.”

I remain still, my fingers still on his stomach and his hand still on my chin. His chest moves up and down, and for a moment, I think I’m going to turn tail and run. He’s making excuses for me. An easy one to hide behind. It would make sense I’m feeling lost and in need of someone else to escape into.

But what’s his excuse. I know he looks at me. I know he does it when he thinks I don’t see it, but I do.

My eyes sting, filling with tears. “That’s not why I was apologizing,” I tell him.

I raise my eyes, meeting his, and while I’m afraid, I have to dive. I can’t hold back.

“I’m sorry, because,” I whisper shakily, “this isn’t the first time I wanted you to touch me.”

And his gaze freezes on me.

He holds my eyes, unmoving except for the rise and fall of his chest, and I have no idea what’s going through his head right now, but I don’t think I’m sorry. No more excuses that this is about me being distraught over Cole.

The attraction was already there.

He slowly lets his fingers fall from my chin, both of his hands balling into fists, and he clenches his jaw, suddenly looking angry.

On reflex, I take a step back, but I don’t get any farther. Grabbing my waist, he hauls me into him, snaking an arm round me and gripping my jaw in his hand between his thumb and four fingers. I gasp, loving the feeling of his body hard against mine but scared, too, because he looks so mad.

“No,” he growls, baring his teeth and looking at me with fury in his eyes. “Do you understand? It’s not happening. You’re not getting that from me.”

Tears fills my eyes, and I can barely see him anymore as my body shakes with a silent sob.

His arm is like steel around me, and I can feel the heat of his rage coming off his skin.

He shakes me. “You wanna get laid, then you go hunt somewhere else.”

I suck in air and twist away from him, pushing his body away.

He’s right. What am I doing? Why would I do that? I feel so stupid, and I crouch down, quickly gathering up my shirt and shoes.

But I wasn’t imagining it, was I? There was something between us, and it was coming from him as much as from me. Did I just see what I wanted to see?

I want to scream. Tears stream down my face, and he still just stands there, glaring at me.

“Go to your room,” he orders.

I break out in a laugh, the bitter sound dripping with disbelief. “Go fuck yourself!” I stand up, hardening my voice. “I’ll find another bed tonight, thank you. Anyone will do for a slut like me, right?”

I whip around and run for the back door, but he grabs the inside of my elbow and hauls me back into the wall of his chest. I drop my shirt and shoes, and he forces us forward into the wall of the house. I shoot out my hands, crashing into the siding.

Jesus.

I shake, sucking in short, shallow breaths as my heart races and my blood runs hot under my skin.

What the…

He reaches around, taking my face in his hand and his hot breath in my ear. “Don’t threaten me with shit like that. If you want to act like a brat, then maybe you should get grounded like one, huh?”

I almost laugh through the tears drying on my face. “By all means,” I taunt. “I’m dying to see how you try to take control of me. You can’t even get Cole to do his chores, and when was the last time a woman got hot in your bed? You’re not even a man.”

He growls and slams his palm into the house in front of me.

I jump.

And the next thing I know, his hand is in my hair, and my head is being twisted to the side as his lips crash down on mine.

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 – 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- 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

Part of Aurora Rose Reynolds’ Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: April 3rd, 2018

Cover Design: Sarah O’Rourke

But when Luka Templeton invaded her blind date and suddenly begins taking over her every waking thought, she realizes that she is in way too deep with the confident alpha male currently wreaking havoc on her life.

Join us on this romantic comedy romp as Chelle and Luka find their way to happily ever after!

Romantic comedy. Releases on April 3 as part of Aurora Rose Reynold’s Happily Ever After Kindle World. (And if you’ve read Aurora’s Until series, you’ll know Chelle from Until Ashlyn!)

  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.

Review – Sinner by Sierra Simone

Sinner cover

Crystal's review

Sierra Simone has written some absolutely stunning books. Her stories are thought provoking, soul stirring and without fail some of the sexiest reads ever. No one can write a scene quite like Sierra. Sinner is so emotionally riveting, so divine in its approach to God and relationships.

Sierra took on some hefty topics and did them with style, grace and dignity. She shined the light on subjects that so taboo in the African American community – religion, racism, interracial relationships and homosexuality. And while she takes full responsibility for any mistakes that she may have made while writing this book, I have to say this. As an African American woman, this book and everything in it, from Sean’s understanding of satin pillowcases to Zenny’s moment of explaining the realities of being black in today’s society to her love for a man who some may call the enemy, honored me and affirmed that Sierra just plain gets it. She writes this so powerfully that the idea of this taboo interracial affair between a very young and very inexperienced woman who is moments away from becoming a nun and the much older very worldly man who happens to be her brother’s best friend with a mission to corrupt her and make her see that God is a farce ceases to be a black and white issue. It simply becomes a love issue.

Sean Bell is all sex and sinful delights. A millionaire playboy in hand tailored suits. He’s also very complex and very torn in his relationship with God. His tragic past and how the Catholic church played a man in his family’s devastation has remained at a focal point in his life. His devotion to his family and to his work doesn’t leave time for real relationships. He simply doesn’t want to make room for love and then one night changes everything he thought he wanted. Zenny Iverson has a plan for her life – to finish on her own two feet, making her own decisions. That means she will finish college, devote herself to God and act in service of His will. But for one night she simply wants to be Zenny and experience it all – life, love… sex. A chance meeting with a man who has been a part of her life since the day she was born will change her life as well. His attention to her body will awaken her. His devotion to her well being will leave her breathless. Things just got a bit more… doubtful.

There are so many jaw dropping moments in this story. So many tears that I found myself wiping off my face. Revelations that left me stunned and had me reassessing my own faith and beliefs. The sexy in this book is scorching hot. The chemistry felt so real. These two people took up a place in my heart and my soul that I cannot give back even if I wanted to. Beautifully presented, masterfully written. Authentic and honest… at times brutally so. This was a emotional mix of heaven, hell and all the lusty moments in between. So very well done. This is one not to be missed.

Sinner teaser

synopsis.jpg

I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.

What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18.

They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser.

My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.

Sinner.

Sinner teaser 2

img_0285-9

“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up.  Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.

Fuck, I want to see it.  I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.

“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.

“My…cunt?”  She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.

“Yeah.”  My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before.  Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.

She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar.  I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.

Her forbidden body.

That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear.  Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad.  Bad even for Sean Bell.

Bad, bad, bad.

Review – When Sinners Kneel by R Scarlett

When Sinners Kneel by R Scarlett

First off I want to say that PNR is not my usual reading genre. I tend to stay away from it because it really doesn’t do anything for me. HOWEVER, THIS BOOK! It’s BRILLIANT!

Originally, it was the cover and blurb that drew me into this book. Both were amazingly attractive and suddenly the PNR genre didn’t matter to me. So I picked it up and dived in. I was CAPTIVATED people. CAP-TI-VATED! I don’t read PNR but from now on, if R. Scarlett writes it, I’m going to read it!

R Scarlett has weaved one hell of a stunning read with When Sinners Kneel. It was intense and deep and perfect! From beginning to end Beau had his claws in me and never let go, he was incredibly special.

The way this book is written, the way things develop, is just magical.

It’s this kind of book that makes you so happy that you stepped outside your comfort zone. 5 well deserved stars!

Hell is empty, and all the devils are here.

Lex Harvey came to The Pit to find her missing friend. Someone who fights there must have the answers she’s seeking. Instead, she found him. The damage inside her matches the darkness inside him. She’s only eighteen, but the feelings she has for him are as old as time.

Beau Knight should have ruled New York. Falling in love was the beginning of his end. He watched her die and he lost his heart. Now, The Pit is his heaven and his hell. The only place he can be himself.

They’re both beyond fixing. Addicts, with desires humans couldn’t understand.

A soulless man and a souleating girl.

How do you find redemption from your demons when you are one?

Review – How to Date a Douchebag: The Coaching Hours by Sara Ney

26166439_1616559975111198_175690812388798088_n


The Coaching Hours
by Sara Ney

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After you go gaga over the four bright and beautiful book covers of Sara Ney’s How to Date a Douchebag series, you’ll notice that each story is as UNIQUE as the color of its cover. Each How to Date a Douchebag story is STUNNING. Each How to Date a Douchebag story strikes like a match, lighting a fire inside you that you won’t want to extinguish as you BURN for the book. Each How to Date a Douchebag story is EVERYTHING!!!

The Coaching Hours is the last HURRAH! This How to Date a Douchebag book is IT!!! You can’t help but love these Douchebags. Sara Ney writes strong heroes and heroines who are as entertaining as they are endearing, and this series-ending story is no exception. The Coaching Hours is the tale of the Iowa wrestling coach’s beautiful and bright daughter and a bet that douchebags make to land her like a coveted prize.

Those douchebags need to learn a lesson. And I’m just the girl to teach them.

This is a story that slowly reveals itself, enshrouding the reader with a little mystery. The Coaching Hours keeps you swimming in a splash of suspense the whole time reading. The twists … just YES!!! A bit forbidden and full of angst, The Coaching Hours bursts with sexual tension that is simply DELICIOUS.

We’ve officially crossed an invisible line we can’t walk over.

This is the story of friends who become more.

A heart is racing but I’m not sure if it’s his or mine.

This is the story of the nice guy finally finishing first. You’ll be rooting for this prince to claim his princess at the end. You’ll SWOON hard for the hero who is hot with a hard body, is as protective as he is passionate, and as sweet as he is sexy. This alpha will make you MELT!!! This so-not-a douchebag but so ALPHA PERFECTION will make you fall in love with him so hard. I LOVED this hero who OWNED ME!!!

”I’m always content to just look at you.”

This hero and heroine are MAGICAL together! I felt their chemistry combust … so hot and heady! I felt their palpable connection. I felt the sensuality smoke through me. I FELT IT ALL!!!

This last How to Date a Douchebag book, The Coaching Hours, MELTED ME!!! Sara Ney delivers a relatable, tension-twisting and heart-hitting tale of unexpected love. The slow burn … the build-up … the delicious sexual tension … just so freaking HOT and HEADY! The Coaching Hours is a BANG-UP BOOK that bleeds the most delicious of drama and angst. This tale tortures with tension and touches with tenderness, and is DOWNRIGHT ADDICTING! I LOVED IT!

We’re playing with fire, and we both know it.

It’s the END … the Douchebags are DONE but I still can’t help but CRAVE MORE! I don’t want to let this humorous, heated, and heartfelt series go! Each tale I’ve fallen for so hard as I love all in different ways. These characters centered around a college wrestling team still feel like family and I’m not ready to bid them farewell. I already miss these Douchebags so much! I don’t want the How to Date a Douchebag series to be over. I’m not crying … you are!!!

”Even surrounded by people, I was alone because I wasn’t with you.”

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 slow burning stars

synopsis.jpg

THERE ARE NO DOUCHEBAGS IN THIS STORY.

Well, there are, but they’re not who this story is about.
This story is about me—the coach’s daughter.
When I moved to Iowa to live with my dad, the university’s take-no-prisoners wrestling coach, I thought transferring would be easy as pie—living with my father would be temporary, and he’d make sure his douchebag wrestlers left me alone.
Wrong on both counts.

ASSHOLES ALWAYS COME OUT OF THE WOODWORK WHEN THE STAKES ARE HIGH.

A bet is placed, and I’m on the table. After one humiliating night and too much alcohol, I find the last nice guy on campus. And when he offers to rent me his spare bedroom, I go all in. It’s time for the nice guy to finish first.
Midnight chats and spilling my problems turn to lingering touches. Lingering touches turn to more.
And the ultimate good guy has the potential do more damage than any douchebags ever could.
