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 – Under The Stars by Tia Louise

5 out of 5 stars

I see another book or possibly duet coming our way from this one and I will surely be happy to get my hands on it.

Under the Stars, the stunning conclusion of the thrilling, white-hot second-chance Bright Lights Duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise is available NOW!

Under the Stars

All around us was darkness and night…

I’m not a hero. I’m a survivor.

I had one way out, and I took it.

Now all I want is peace,

A place to pick up the pieces and start over.

But she wants justice.

Names on a list, faces in the crowd.

I vowed to help her, but it’s taking us back to the demons.

Until he appeared.

I thought he died in the fight.

I was wrong.

He’s here.

Stronger, more powerful… Sexier.

And dangerous.

The boy I loved is now the one man we have to fear most.

When he tried to save me, he had no power.

Now everything has changed, and he’ll never stop until I’m his.

~ Lara ~

We stop walking and turn to face the emerald waters. The briny air pushes her hair back and around her shoulders. Tendrils spin around my face, and the inescapable sorrow filters through my chest.

“I can’t do this anymore.”

“Yes, you can.” Her voice is flat, and she bends to put Pierre on the dry sand. “I’m going up. How much longer will you be out here? Celeste is making Quiche Lorraine for breakfast.”

Another sigh. “I’ll be up in a bit. I’m finishing my exercise.”

“Don’t stay out too long or I’ll eat all the food! Come, Pierre!”

I watch her run up the tall staircase, her little dog at her heels, thinking of the reasons she has to run. I remember her as a small girl on the street, in the dark alley behind the theater. She was thin and starving and hunched in the corner waiting to die.

She was so malnourished, I thought she was younger than her actual age, which was twelve. I remember carrying her inside and fighting with Rosa. I remember Rosa boxing my ears and telling me the first time that kid cried, she’d throw us both in the alley with the rats. I remember the terror I felt that night and Molly falling asleep so quietly with her head on my chest.

She needed me. She loved me, and I loved her fiercely in return.

I remember her running around the theater, a sweet and innocent kid never suspecting the hawk was circling above, watching her, closing in to steal her soul and warp her future. I’ll never forgive myself for what happened to her. I’ll never forgive myself for not being there to protect her.

A flash of pain moves through my stomach, and I remember someone saying the same words to me not so long ago…

Walking to the edge of the water, I look out at the surf, at the waves rushing in and out. I think about how nothing bad can happen here. The sins of the past are far, far away from this beautiful place.

Only it’s a lie.

The sins of the past are never far away.

We carry them with us in our hearts wherever we go.

No matter how far we run, we can never outrun ourselves.

Tears are in my eyes, and I blink them away. My emotions are so close to the surface these days. I squat and wrap my arms around my knees, holding my insides together and wishing…

My wishes never come true.

“Lara!” A strong male voice cuts through the breeze.

For a moment I don’t believe it. It’s a wish caught on the wind and carried away out to sea.

“Lara!” It’s louder this time, closer.

Nervous anticipation floods my chest. I stand and look up and over my shoulder. The staircase where Molly descended is empty. The one ahead of it is empty as well.

Was it a dream?

Another shout, and I realize it’s coming from behind me. Turning, I see a tall figure jogging down the steps. He’s alone, and he’s moving fast. I look around, and no one is here. I have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

My heart alternates between beating out of my chest and dying. I’m back on that train, seeing him for the first time out of the blue, completely caught off-guard, alternately panicking and rejoicing… He’s alive!

He’s wearing faded jeans and a plain white t-shirt. His caramel hair is a little longer, but not much. It moves in the breeze as he approaches me.

He’s strong and pure and gorgeous as ever, and the way we touched, our glorious reunion is stronger and hotter in my memory than the sun climbing higher in the sky.

I want to cry. I want to sing. I want to hold him…

But now everything has changed.

Review – Signed by Marni Mann

6 out of 5 stars

6 stars

Marni, you blow me away woman. Your diversity of writing amazes me. This by far is the HOTTEST 🔥🔥🔥🔥 book I’ve read by you. Heat from beginning to the sweet ending. I will admit I read the epilogue with tears running down my face. This was such the perfect read. Serious scorch factor with a very emotional storyline.

James is one of the sweetest girls ever and is mature beyond her years, most likely because of losing her parents so you and her chasing her dreams. At 18, she was flying high, successful as could be. Little did she know that was all about to be ripped right out from under her by a nasty vile human being.

Brett, OMG, Brett. James is you ever tire of him, send him my way! That man is HOT!!!! You’d have to be crazy to not fantasize about him, real or not. He will set your panties on fire and melt your heart.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK NOW!! If you’re looking for the perfect weekend read, one click. I promise you will not be disappointed.

A one-night stand with James Ryne, the hottest actress in LA, was a night I’d never forget…

James: I can’t stop thinking about you.

Brett: I didn’t know America’s sweetheart was such a dirty girl.

James: It gets better.

Brett: You’re too young for me.

James: Eighteen’s the age of consent.

Brett: The things I want to do to you right now…

James: Are you ever going to tell me who you really are?

Brett: The best you’ve ever had. That’s all you need to know.

James: When are you coming back to LA?

Brett: Next week—and you’d better not be wearing panties.

Brett: What the hell did I just watch?

James: Oh my God, Brett! It’s going viral!

James: My life is ruined. My career. My reputation.

James: Are you there?

James: Will you let me explain?

James: Brett?

Brett: Forget everything I said before. Forget us.

I tried to forget her…until she walked into my office, begging to get signed.

Her body was leaning into mine, shivering from the air-conditioning vent blowing right above her. I pointed the air in the opposite direction, and my other hand went into her hair, pulling her face toward mine.

“A couple of miles,” I hissed against her lips, parting them for me.

The cranberry juice she’d mixed with her vodka tasted so fucking sweet on her tongue. If she gave me any more of it, I was going to shred her dress right here, dip my face between her legs, and lick her cunt.

Fuck, I couldn’t wait to taste that pussy and see if it was as sweet as the juice.

This driver needed to step on it.

I wasn’t a patient man.

As if she sensed that, she pulled back just a little, and I bit into her bottom lip, holding it, tugging it, before I said, “I’m going to fucking devour you.” Finally releasing her, I turned my attention to her neck, smelling, kissing, gnawing the skin that led to her ear.

“Oh my God,” she groaned, and she tried to slide her fingers through the slots between the buttons of my shirt.

She went lower, brushing back and forth across my cock, and that was when I shackled her wrists in my hand.

“Please,” she whined.

“You’re going to get it all fucking night; don’t you worry.”

We pulled into the front of my high-rise and came to a stop, and I opened the back door.

“I’ve got it, sir,” the driver said.

“I’m good,” I replied, sliding James into my arms and carrying her out.

The doorman didn’t greet me by name, a sign that he was new, but held the door open for us, and I took us through the lobby and into the elevator.

James’s tongue traced the outline of my ear as I pressed the button for my floor and settled us against the back wall.

“Make it hurry,” she breathed.

My thoughts were the same.

When we got to my floor, I rushed us down the short hallway and waved my fob over the reader. It clicked as it unlocked, and I brought us into the bedroom, setting James on her feet right by the bed.

I stood in front of her and said, “Turn around.”

I waited until her back faced me, and then I kissed across it while I lowered the zipper at the same time. She turned again when I was done, and she let the dress fall to the floor.

The only thing she wore now was the pair of black heels.

No bra, no panties.

I leaned back to admire her body. She had tits that were no bigger than my palms, nipples that were small and hard, and a bare pussy with the sweetest fucking clit at the top.

“Jesus Christ,” I moaned. She went to take the heels off, and I said, “Hell no. Keep them on.”

I looped my finger into the Windsor knot and pulled it loose. Before I had it off, James fisted both ends of my tie and used them to pull me toward her. The movement caused my lips to slam against hers, and the tie slithered down my chest, followed by the buttons from my shirt that she had torn apart.

She wanted my cock.

She was getting my tongue first.

About Marni:

Best-selling Author Marni Mann knew she was going to be a writer since middle school.

She crafts sexy, titillating stories that weave together her love of darkness, mystery, passion, and human emotion. A New Englander at heart, she now lives in Sarasota, Florida with her husband and their two dogs who subsequently have been characters in her books. When she’s not nose deep in her laptop working on her next novel, she’s scouring for chocolate, sipping wine, traveling to new locations, and devouring fabulous books.

Review – Ryan’s Bed by Tijan

23658350_984001185071755_4942100904074562909_n

Ryan’s Bed
by Tijan

My rating: 6 of 5 stars


That would be utopia. If everyone was kind, if everyone was worthy. If there were no hatred, pain, or suffering. If people couldn’t see someone’s skin color, quality of their clothes, where they lived. If nothing mattered except the heart and mind.

It’s not often when I sit and stare at the last line of a story I finished and am left STUNNED SPEECHLESS!!! Three days. It took me three days to process Tijan Meyer’s latest soul-clenching story and translate my emotions into words. This story was UNEXPECTED, so UTTERLY RAW and REAL that my emotions are still reeling from its impact. Ryan’s Bed is a book I dove into blindly but one that made me see. I KNEW that this broken and beautiful book would BREAK ME, and that it did. Ryan’s Bed cut me open and I’m still BLEEDING.


I was dead inside.

Told through the perspective of a teenage girl, Mackenzie, this novel tackles tragedy head on, unraveling emotions and secrets, while love finds its way into broken hearts that have begun to heal.

Mackenzie is the beautiful, bold, and broken teen heroine. She is wise beyond her years. Stuck in a family where secrets and emotions are buried and truths need to be set free, Mackenzie seeks an escape that she finds in Ryan.

“Everything else was flat, black and white, gray, dull, cold, and then I went to him, and it felt like the color was turned on.”

Flirting In Bed

Ryan is gorgeous, smart, witty, and perceptive. He beacon of light in Mackenzie’s dark world. Ryan has a compassionate soul and I felt him soar through my soul. This hero has been through his own hell but is a survivor. Oh did I ADMIRE and love this heartfelt hero!!!

“You make me feel things I thought were gone.”

MacKenzie’s and Ryan’s chemistry is UNDENIABLE. This hero and heroine are drawn together like a moth to a flame. Two broken souls searching for solace. Two broken hearts longing to become whole. Two beautiful souls connected by feels and perhaps fate.

“It’s only you.”

The PARALYZING INTENSITY of this heartwarming and heartbreaking book burned through me like fire. Poignant. Passionate. Powerful. I was GUTTED as Ryan’s Bed gripped my heart and shattered it to pieces!!! I full out sobbed … chest-heaving sobs!!! My Kindle screen was covered in tears from this tornado in words that struck my soul, as Ryan’s Bed tore me apart.

Ryan’s Bed tackles tough issues. Ryan’s Bed is not simply a story—it’s a journey of shining after shattering. It’s healing after heartbreak. It’s bits of ugly woven with bits of beauty. It’s one of those WOW stories that slices you to shreds, baring you open, as the story bares itself to you. It’s an EMOTIONAL HIGH. It’s EVERYTHING!!!

Tijan’s words aren’t just part of a story you’re reading: They are an experience…a journey YOU LIVE and FEEL. I FELT this story’s spirit seize and squeeze my soul. My heart split open where every emotion absorbed every word. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their hauntingly beautiful love story was mine.

This was nothing what I expected, it was so much MORE! I bestow all the stars in the constellation to the EMOTIONALLY INTENSE Ryan’s Bed!!! This heartfelt tale is my first 6-STAR STORY this year, the highest for my blog, for those books that are worth the constellation of stars. Ryan’s Bed is not only my FIRST TOP 2018 read but it’s a TOP LIFETIME READ too.

THANK YOU, Tijan, for bringing this vision to light. Thank you for your bravery in bringing this book to readers. Thank you for making this story feel so real. Thank you for this soul-stirring story. An evocative and emotionally-wound journey of heartbreak and healing, Ryan’s Bed leaves a lasting mark on the soul. This HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL book broke me in the best way and is one that I’ll remember forever.

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…

I didn’t.
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.

Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

Review – Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland 

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland 

Vi Keeland NEVER disappoints. EVER. Everything she writes is pure gold. Everything she writes is incredible. Sex, Not Love was just the perfect romance. I devoured this book whole in a matter of hours, I couldn’t put it down. There was nothing about this book that I did not like, nothing I would ever think needed to change. It’s PERFECT.

Vi  is a go to author for me. She’s the author who’s books I read when I want a solid contemporary romance that brings the heat, the feels and is as sexy as it is sweet. Sex, Not Love, fitted that to a t. From start to finish we are delivered magic in the form of Hunter who’s as delicious as he is dirty, sexy as he is sweet. I felt RUINED by this man. His cocky arrogance was HOT! And mannn did I swoon? *nods enthusiastically*. I swooned harrrrrrd! Nat was also a brilliant, captivating heroine. So easy to connect with and understand. She was written with flair and sass and her vulnerability was clear to see but I saw her as a character I would love to be friends with. She was just FANTASTIC. 

Together Hunter and Nat are explosive. Their chemistry all consuming. I loved the sizzle and burn of their build up and everything inbetween. Everything about them together just worked. Vi also worked in the perfect amount of emotion and feeling that 100% tugged on my heart strings. Together the emotions and the sexiness balanced flawlessly. 

If you’re looking for a read that will make you smile, swoon and get a little hot under the collar, a read that makes you feel then this book is the one you need! Vi Keeland has kicked off 2018 in tremendous fashion!! And as always I can’t wait to see what she does next!


From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Review – Under The Lights by Tia Louise 

5 out of 5 stars 

  Tia Louise strikes again. That woman needs a fire extinguisher around when she’s writing. She has the heat packed in surrounding you with hot and sexy words. Tia’s books definitely never lack for heat, but this book!! This book is so much more than off the charts heat.


Bonechilling, dangerous, angst all packed into a powerful book that you will not be capable of putting down until THE END! Then, you’ll be dying for more. You’ll be chomping at the bit for more. I feel for all the messages Tia will be bombarded with asking for more. Hot dang woman. You’re a rockstar!!


 “All the sin, heat, and dirty underbelly that comes with it. I’m dying to read Under the Stars!” –Nora Flite, USA Today bestselling author

Under the Lights, book one in the thrilling, white-hot second-chance Bright Lights Duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise is available NOW!

Under The Lights

Heroes don’t last long around here…

Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?

Check.

Prepare to die for her?

Double-check.

Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.

She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw her.

The curve of her breast outlined by sparkling rhinestones.

Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.

Long, dark hair…

She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.

Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.

Cat eyes and blood red lips.

Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.

I couldn’t keep my hands off her…

But her fame had a dark side,

A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.

I would do anything to save her…

He would do anything to see me dead.

“You’re so good.” Her voice is soft, and she traces her finger along the bandage before lifting her blue eyes to meet mine. “Thank you for buying me lunch. For saving me…”

Without warning, she steps forward and wraps her arms around my waist, pressing her face against my chest, and I don’t hold back. She fits perfectly in my arms, and I inhale the sweet scent of her hair just before I press my lips to the top of her head.

Her voice is muffled against my shirt. “It feels so safe here.”

“Lara,” I whisper in her hair. “I want to keep you safe.”

She pulls back, and I loosen my hold. But she doesn’t leave. She puts her hand against my cheek, lifting her chin as she rises higher on her toes. Hell if I make her work for it.

Leaning forward, I capture her lips. They part, and our tongues meet, curling together as I hug her closer to me. She exhales a little noise, and her fingers thread in the sides of my hair. I trace a line with my lips to her ear.

“I want you so much,” I whisper.

She turns, searching for my mouth, and I kiss her. She fists my shirt in her hands, pulling it up and placing her palm against my bare stomach. I groan deeply, and my hands slide under her ass. I lift her against my chest, and her legs go around my waist. Our kisses are wildfire, fast-moving, lips pulling, hungry for something more. Something just within reach.

She moving subtly against my waist, and the blood rushes downward. I’m hard and she’s riding me, stroking my erection with her crotch.

“Lara,” I groan.

Her lips still, and she holds my cheeks, looking into my eyes. “That night on the catwalk… The way you looked at me…”

My brow collapses at the memory. “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

“I only want you to see me.”

Her lips are pink and swollen from my kisses. I lean forward and kiss her again, tasting her like she’s water in the desert. She exhales a little noise, and it’s a charge straight to my cock.

I love her lips. I love her mouth. I want more. I want all of her.

“Does your waist hurt?”

She leans forward, running her nose along my jaw. “Nothing hurts. Everything is amazing.”

Review – Deal Breaker by Tara Leigh 



5 out of 5 stars

 Another successful book by Tara Leigh. I really enjoyed book 1 in this series and was so excited to get book 2. They can be read as standalones,  so don’t worry if you haven’t read book 1 yet. Though I do recommend you read it at some point just because its really good! 
Nixie and Nash are a set of feisty characters. Nixie is a little spitfire and Nash is your typical domineering alpha who eventually falls casualty to a woman!  The fire between these two makes the book that much better. Watching them go through all that they do and eventually come out on the right side with those walls torn down is so fulfilling. There is drama, sugar,  and spice waiting for you. 
Tara is definitely a new author that is making her mark in this book world one page at a time and I’m so honored to read her words. I look forward to more amazing reads.

Title: Deal Breaker

Author: Tara Leigh

Release Date: November 14, 2017

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press, SWERVE

Series: Billionaire Bosses #2

Genres: Romance

Format: Digital

Synopsis:

Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat… And everything to set her heart on fire. 

Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted… And exactly what he needs.

With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?

 “Can I have my clothes now?” My throat was so tight, each word emerged strangled.

“No.”

No? I’d swallowed my pride to sound appreciative, practically begging for my clothes back, and he had the gall to say no? Who the hell did this guy think he was?

Beneath the covers, an indignant shiver trembled through me. I couldn’t see much in the dark room, but I assumed he was the same man who’d come running into the alley last night. The memory of him was permanently ingrained in my brain. Tall, at least a foot taller than me, with close cropped dark hair and olive skin. Pale green eyes that sat above high cheekbones, fringed by long eyelashes that didn’t soften his hard edges one bit. “Listen, if you’re expecting some kind of open-armed, grateful—”

“From you?” He made a noise that sounded like a snort. “I’m getting the feeling you don’t do grateful.”

I winced, taken aback by the blunt honesty of his observation. “I never asked you to come running into the alley after me.”

“So you’re not glad I did?”

With my track record, of course I wouldn’t wind up with a run-of-the-mill good samaritan. No, instead I fell into the hands of a cocky jerk with extra time on his hands, looking for an appreciative female to stroke his ego. “How do you know I wouldn’t have been just fine on my own?”

“You’re right. I don’t.” His swift capitulation surprised me, and I sagged back against the pillow. “Next time you have your head in the clouds and don’t notice two thugs hot on your tail, looking to rob or rape you, probably both, I’ll let you take your chances.”

“Fine. All hail the conquering hero. Happy now?”

“Are you admitting that you needed my help?”

So damned smug. “Listen, we can debate my self-defense capabilities all day—”

“Night. It’s the middle of the night.”

“Whatever. All night, all day. There’s no difference. What I’m trying to say—”

The arrogant man with a white knight complex interrupted me again. “Actually, there is a difference. The difference is—it’s nighttime, and you’re in my bed getting all hot and bothered about nonsense. Either go to sleep, or we might as well channel your energy into something more productive.”

I snapped my sagging jaw shut, feeling a rush of heat between my thighs that rivaled my burning knife wound. Jeez, Nixie. Get a grip. This guy is clearly an asshole and you are not an asshole magnet.

Not anymore.

His low chuckle sent the hair at the back of my neck standing on end. “So that’s what it takes, huh? You know, most women would consider sex with me to be more of a bonus than a threat.”

Jesus, this guy had quite a set of balls on him. “Don’t flatter yourself, big shot. You could have called nine-one-one. Or dropped me off at the nearest hospital. I’m in your bed because you brought me here. And now I want to leave.”

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  – Penthouse Player by Tara Leigh 



Wow!!  Tara just wowed me with this forbidden office romance. The heat sizzled my kindle and the back and forth between characters kept me well engaged. This is definitely not a book you can read in bits.  It will have you reading through til the end. 
A chance meeting at a social event brings them together,  but when she finds out exactly who he is,  she is running faster than a cheetah. She is dumbstruck that he is the very man she will be working for. 
She tries to resist him at every turn but he keeps pushing  and pushing  until she eventually gives in.  What scandal will come of this relationship is the question. 
This is a definite must read.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more to come from Tara Leigh.

PENTHOUSE PLAYER Excerpts

Copyright © 2017 Tara Leigh

Excerpt #1

My eyes skipped over a blonde in a red dress, and then quickly returned. I hadn’t realized I’d started walking towards her until a waiter nearly spilled my drink. She was gorgeous. And when she tipped her head back to laugh at something the man beside her said, I decided that word was entirely inadequate. Stunning was much more apt. Exquisitely stunning, actually. Her creamy skin was flawless. And she was tall. I looked down, or at least she appeared tall with the five-inch stilettos on her feet. When her open-mouthed laugh faded into a generous smile, her wide eyes met mine. If she’d been an investment, she would have been labeled high risk, high reward, with a warning—Don’t buy if you can’t afford to lose.

Her lips closed around the edge of the glass in her hands, our stare unbroken. Her eyes were the bright shade of freshly cut, well-tended grass. And after she took a sip, white wine by the looks of it, she didn’t look away. Her open appraisal was a lure, and I took the bait. She could have been a model on a billboard in Times Square, or in the GQ magazine I subscribed to but never had the time to read. I know I should’ve turned away. This girl was clearly trouble with capital T, something I needed as much as a hole in my head.

After doing well with the first fifty million I’d been able to raise, I was just about to open my fund up to new investors. I didn’t have any official commitments yet, but I had no doubt my fund was about to grow to at least $500 million. I had a lot to consider, and a ton of work to do. This was the most important time in my career and I couldn’t afford to fuck it up by becoming a lovesick fool over some girl, exquisitely stunning or not.

I stopped in my tracks, maybe ten feet away, although I couldn’t tear my eyes from her face. She was young. Maybe too young? But then she smiled again. And not just any smile. This one wasn’t polite, or friendly, or casual in any way. No, her smile was so bright it heated the drink in my hands and blinded me from seeing anyone else in the room. Her curved lips were an invitation I couldn’t resist. Even though I knew I should.

Excerpt #2

“Obviously, something needs to happen between us. Soon. Preferably tonight, actually.”

Endorphins ping-ponged through my body like the ball in an old-fashioned arcade game. I’d tried to deny the chemistry between us, then suggested we ignore it. But to hell with that. It just wasn’t possible. I found my voice. “Someplace with a bed, or a couch.” I shrugged. “At least a rug, maybe a table.”

Tristan chuckled, attempting to finger-comb his hair into place. “Last time I checked, my apartment had all four.”

“Good. We can’t be seen in public together. At least not outside of the office.”

“About that. Bettencourt has more than one hedge fund you can work on. I’ll set you up with another portfolio manager or have you assigned to marketing or research, whatever you want.”

I shook my head. That wasn’t what I wanted at all. “No. Please don’t. Your strategy is the one I feel most closely aligned with. I applied to Bettencourt, hoping I’d have the opportunity to work on the Millennial Fund. This doesn’t have to be an either/or situation.” Taking a breath, I debated whether or not I should even verbalize the thoughts racing through my mind. Spit it out, already. I forced words through my mouth in a rush. “Let’s just have sex tonight and get it out of our system. Then we can pretend it never happened and focus on work.”

An aristocratic eyebrow arched upwards. “You think that’s all going to take? One fuck and we won’t ever need to do it again?”

I grinned at Tristan’s outraged expression. He even wore indignation well. “Okay, fine. Maybe we’ll have to do it more than once. But I just started here, and I intend to come out on the other side of this internship with a job offer. And I want it because I’ve proved myself on the Bettencourt trading floor, not in you bedroom. No one can know about us.”

Tristan scowled. “Is there someone else? Maybe not a boyfriend, just a friends-with-benefits kind of thing? You seem pretty eager to keep us in the dark.”

It’s what I know. “Don’t be ridiculous.”

Tristan tucked in his shirt, adjusted his sleeves. Skepticism darkened his eyes. “Casual sex, no strings attached. That’s what you want?”

“I’m not exactly the next Mrs. Bettencourt, Tristan. I highly doubt your socialite stepmother would approve of me.”

“Why?” Tristan seemed less than eager to take my words at face value. “Because you want to do more with your life than plan overpriced parties with bad food and watered-down drinks?”

I looked down, a blush coloring my cheeks. If he knew that even my own mother wouldn’t be seen in public with me, he would feel differently. “Something like that.”

Review – Hate to Love You by Tijan

HATETOLOVEYOUFINALCOVER2

Hate to Love You by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know you’ve read a book that rocked your world when you don’t want it to end. Tijan Meyer writes such raw and riveting stories that FEEL SO REAL, and I am always left wanting…NEEDING MORE. Hate to Love You is a HEADY HIGH, an edge-of-your-seat, emotionally-entwined, delicious drama-infused love story! This tale HITS DEEP with a few punches—touchy situations you may not see coming but ones that will TOUCH YOU and ones you will FEEL! Heartfelt and hypnotizing, Hate to Love You is a romance you’ll feel while reading, and oh did I feel Tijan’s words take hold of me!

Hate to Love You INTOXICATED ME where I was fully immersed into the college world. These charismatic characters quickly became my classmates and my friends. My college days flashed before my eyes as I was taken back to a care-free time of university life with classes, books, frat parties, and young love. I lived and breathed this book as Hate to Love You became me.

Beautiful and badass Kennedy Clarke was burned in the past but is ready for a fresh start in college, hoping to learn from her high school mistakes and avoid all the hot boys and all the drama. Sarcastic, smart, and sassy, Kennedy is my spirit animal. She marches to the beat of her own drum and is a leader rather than a follower. I ADORED and ADMIRED this heroine so much!

It was better to start swinging first then to get hit by someone else.

College Quarterback, Shay Coleman, is a HOT with a HUGE HEART! It was INSTA-LOVE! Shay is a Viking God who OWNED EVERY OUNCE OF ME! I could not get enough of this perfect man! 

“That’s called charisma and perhaps map animal sexiness. It oozes out, and you are affected…I know what’s good, Clarke, and it’s definitely me.”

When Kennedy and Shay connect in class, it’s one CHEMISTRY-FILLED COLLISION! This hero and heroine’s chemistry is intense and insane. The sexual tension is off-the-charts! 

“We hate each other. Fine. But not right now.”

His lips nipped at mine. I felt them smile as he murmured,

“I don’t hate you right now at all.”

HTLY-Teaser3

I MELTED at words that are PURE MAGIC, ones that pulled me in deep! 

His lips met mine, and he whispered against them, “I don’t play fair. Ever.”

Hate to Love You rains with kisses…so many sweet and sexy kisses between a heroine who has lost faith in men and a hero who makes her believe again. These kisses said so much! I loved Kennedy and Shay together!

Oh. My. SWOON! My head was full of swoony sensations and so much goodness! 

“No thinking. Just . . .” He bent down, his lips over mine. “Feeling this.”

I felt Hate to Love You PENETRATE ME! The passion…the promise…I FELT EVERY WORD I READ! The push and the pull was my DRUG that I both hated and loved. Hate to Love You twists and turns around the heart in a romance roller coaster of feels, and I FELT IT ALL!

Words reached inside and grabbed my heart hard, tugging it the whole way where it stayed stuck in this story. Hate to Love You broke me with a heavy hit to my heart where my tears bled onto the pages. Happy tears. Heartbreaking tears. Hopeful tears. In a HEART-WRENCHING and HEARTWARMING romance, Hate to Love You made my heart both shatter and soar.

Hate to Love You is a SLOW BURN of a romance that oozes smolder, sweetness, and strength. Kennedy and Shays’ love is hard-fought love at its best, and their story seems far from over. As always, Tijan Meyer has WOWED ME and left me panting for more! I did not want Hate to Love You to end, this most delicious of dramas meets potent and passionate romance. I fell in love with this soul-searing story over and over again, one where the feels remain long after the last page. 

“You can let me in.”

“You’re in. You’re so far in that I don’t know what I’d do if I lost you.”

“Then I’m in, and you’re in, too.”

💋💋💋💋💋 sweet and smoldering ‘hate to love’ kisses

Rule #1: No hot guys.

It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.

No one would know me at college.

Rule #2: No drama.

I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.

Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.

Right?

Wrong.

And all because of Shay Coleman.

Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .

. . . and he was about to break all my rules.
