One hot mess. One hot boss. One too many hot encounters…

Catastrophe Queen, an all-new hilarious office romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is coming January 29th!

CQ-cover3.3.jpg

It’s not you. It’s me.

No, seriously. It is me. Not only does my name literally mean “unfortunate,” but that’s the story of my life.

Everything I touch turns to cr*p. An apartment fire—that I swear I was not responsible for—means I’m living back at home with my s*x-mad parents. Yay, me!

Which is why I need my new job as personal assistant to Cameron Reid to get back on my feet. Three months in this job and I can move back out and, hopefully, remember to turn off my flat iron once in a while.

Ahem.

On paper, my job is easy. Make coffee. Book appointments. Keep everything in order.

Until I walk in on my boss, half-naked, wearing nothing but the kind of tiny white towel that dreams are made of.

Now, nothing is easy—except our mutual attraction. But he’s my boss, and you know what they say about mixing work and pleasure: unless you do p*rn, it’s just not worth it.

Or is it?

ADD TO YOUR TBR: https://bit.ly/2D0tREC

If madness has a name…it’s hers. She is an artist seeking solace. He is a serial killer seeking vengeance. She doesn’t remember. He remembers it all. She is broken. He is obsessed. She wants truth. He wants revenge. One of them is guilty. One of them is innocent. Both of them want to win. And for that one of them has to die. About the Author: V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors. Connect with V.F.!

THE KISS THIEF by L.J. Shen

Release Date: January 9th

Add to Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/41450662-tk

Blurb They say your first kiss should be earned. Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky. They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred. Mine were broken before we left church. They say your heart only beats for one man. Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end. I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit. Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage. They say that all great love stories have a happy ending. I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter. One kiss. Two men. Three lives. Entwined together. And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

About the Author L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

Title: Sofa King Wrong
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 3, 2018



Blurb

Hard. Huge. Completely untamed.
He’s got the perfect tool to get the job done.
This off-limits brat is his duty to protect.
But forbidden fruit just tastes a whole lot sweeter

Life on the street taught me to fight to survive. Prison taught me to endure. I spent years locked up like an animal for protecting the ones I loved. Six damn years without the soft feel of a woman under my rough hands.

Now I work for my buddy’s moving company, Sofa King Movers. A job up in the Hollywood Hills seem like a piece of cake, until it turns out I’m not there to move boxes. I’m there for her,

Alyssa Campo. Hollywood starlet, movie sensation, tabloid drama queen. A barely legal wild-child with a reputation for being a class-A brat. And they want me to be her fucking bodyguard.

She’s off-limits in every possible way – too tempting, too famous, too way-too-fucking-young for me. But when the sassy-mouthed little tease under my watch decides to flaunt my rules, she’s going to learn how firm I can be with bad girls like her.

I know I should keep my distance, but once I’ve had a taste of those forbidden lips and those tempting curves, there’ll be no keeping me from her.

Alyssa’s mine to protect. And mine to claim.

She’s the forbidden fruit. But years behind bars has me hungry.

…And I’m gonna feast until the juice runs down my chin.

Sharing Samantha by Madison Faye 📕Reviewed📕




Title: Sharing Samantha
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Standalone Thanksgiving M/F/M Romance
Release Date: November 19, 2018



Blurb

Pass the gravy, share the pie.
We’ll have her stuffed and satisfied.
Forget the sweets and pumpkin spice,
We’ll give her something twice as nice.

We’ve always hated Thanksgiving. After all, growing up rough and untamed on the streets taught us one thing: there isn’t much in this life to be thankful for. And nothing comes for free unless you take it.

We’re trying to lie low at a prick of a business associate’s holiday party. But when she walks into our world, we know we’ve found something to make more than our stomachs growl.

Fiery red hair, sharp green eyes, pouty lips all full of sass and sweetness, and very much in need of rescuing from her asshole ex. She’s wrong on every level—too innocent, too good for two rough-and-tumble men like us. That and we’re supposed to do business with her entitled, awful family.

But one look at Samantha McCue, and we’re hooked, obsessed. One taste, and trust me when I say we will be coming back for seconds.

Because there’ll be some stuffing on this holiday table all right. And plenty of cream for that sweet pie. It’s the season of giving, after all.

…And between us both, we’ve got plenty to give her.

Fuck being “forbidden”. For once in our lives, we’ve found something to be thankful for.

And we’ll be damned if we let anyone take her from us.

Taking her is my right.

She’s different than the others. There’s a darkness about her. Something wild inside her. And it calls to the beast inside me.

But she isn’t what I expect. With every word and every touch, she pushes me, burrows deep under my skin, challenging the rules, upending history.

Author Bio


USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance, Natasha Knight specializes in dark, tortured heroes. Happily-Ever-Afters are almost always guaranteed, but she likes to put her characters through hell to get them there. She’s evil like that.


Author Links

Taken is the start of a new Duet from Natasha Knight. And what a freaking start. You have two families that have for generations been part of each other one way or another.

Every generation the Scafoni oldest gets to pick a “Willow Girl” out of the daughters. This year Helena is chosen. She has done everything she could think of to make sure she was not chosen. Now that she is to serve the Scafoni for three years- one year with each brother. Helena has to stay strong for her soul.

This is a dark read, that might have some triggers. But man is it well worth it. I can’t wait to see what Torn brings.

So we start where we ended in Taken. We don’t know where Sebastian and Helena are and if Gregory is involved at all. We have more questions than answers but Natasha is quick to answer some of them.

This second book is not nearly as “dark” as the first one as Sebastian is finally able to admit his feelings for Helena. But his brother Gregory is still a big part of what needs to happen for all of them. So Helena and Sebastian need to play the game and figure a way out of the trouble they are in.

I will say I would love to know what happens to Gregory. A story on him would be freaking awesome since he kind of turns pretty dark there for a bit.

Excerpt

The walk to his room was second nature—a quick elevator ride, take a right and go down four doors. A swift rap of my knuckles against the door, and then I waited for the overwhelming force that was Gavin Grayson.
“Hello,” he said as he opened the door. No scowl to greet me, no anger. There was a small upturn of his lips, a little more prominent on one side than the other.
A shudder rolled through me, my heart doing double time again.
“What’s wrong tonight?” I asked as I stepped into his room.
“You’re not in it,” he said.
My stomach flipped, and I felt heat flood my cheeks. How was it that in a few short weeks he had taken over my heart? I wanted, yearned for his praise. To get caught up in his eyes, loving the way they would soften and grow heavy as he looked at me.
I drew in a stuttered breath as he stepped forward and towered over me. In heels I was a decent five-feet-eight, but Gavin had to be a few inches over six feet tall—a commanding presence as he loomed over me.
“Emma?” He was so close I could feel his breath on my skin.
“Hmm?”
“I want you.”
The muscles in my thighs clenched and I stretched up toward him, almost begging him closer. “Yes.”
“To stop looking at me like that.”
The haze he covered me with suddenly cleared as I looked up at him. My stomach dropped as I tried to comprehend what happened. “What?”
He stepped away, his back turned to me. All of his muscles were tense, his fists clenching at his side.
“If that’s what you want, what do you need?” I asked.
His head fell back. “I thought I’d made that obvious.”
“I’m not sure,” I replied, more than a little surprised at how breathy my voice was. “I’ve gotten a lot of mixed messages.”
He moved back toward me. “You have me conflicted.”
“How so?”
“Because the last time I wanted a woman anywhere near this much, things didn’t end so well,” he began. “Because you’re young. Because you work for the hotel and not for me.” He reached out, his fingers caressing my clavicle before slipping up my neck. “Because nothing has ever seemed as taboo as your lips.”
My knees felt weak as he moved closer, my nipples tightening. There was no resistance as I waited with bated breath.
His lips were soft against mine, supple. A taste, a sample. It was perfect, and an electric pulse moved between us. Every ounce of want and desire sat in the small gap between our lips.
A squeak left me when he suddenly pressed forward, kissing deeper and more intensely than before. His free arm wound around my waist, pulling me closer to him while his mouth opened. I followed suit, wrapping my arms around his shoulders, pulling him closer. It was forceful and filled with more passion than I’d ever encountered, so much that it ignited an inferno inside me.
All I wanted was for him to keep touching me, to never stop.




Author Bio

K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology and the Amazon Bestselling Series, Breach. She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.

Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.

So it took me a bit to get into this story. I really liked Emma. But Gavin man, he is an a$$. He acts more like a teenager than a man. I mean he does explain his reasons for his attitude later but still, he is about to become a CEO of a major company and he can’t handle an emotion for a woman.

But I gave it four stars due to Emma and how she handles him. She is a very strong female character and keeps this story together. So if you are looking for a strong female character and a male that does redeem himself this is the book for you.

The first thing I have to say about this is I HAD to give this book 5 stars just due to how out of bounds it took me. I have read some dark romance stories. But this prequel does not have anything to do with romance, it is purely a dark themed story that takes you into the start of these characters beginning.

I don’t want to give anything away about this story. I want you to go in as blind as I did. Trust me you want to be blindsided with this story. It makes it all the more of a jewel out there. Just know that this is an extreme 18+ ONLY reader book. It is dark, dirty, disturbing in some places, and just makes me want to read the next book even more!

Series: NYC Doms by Jane Henry 📕Reviewed📕

 

 

Seven years ago, she was sheltered. In need of guidance. I was a newly-ordained priest with a vow of celibacy. Our love affair was torrid, and wrong, and ended in heartbreak.
We broke it off and went our separate ways.
I left the priesthood. She left her home.
Seven years later, she’s stranded in my NYC Club while a blizzard rages outside, and she wants a taste of dominance.
I won’t let another man lay eyes on her, much less touch her.
She’s still my everything. My salvation.
And there’s no way I’m letting her go.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow, I loved this story. The history that these two characters went through before they find each other again is so heartbreaking that it makes you wonder how they could ever get over it.

Chandra has always been trying to find her way in life. Her family is no help and has only wanted her to do what they wanted. When she falls in love with a person, not for her she is branded a who*e and decides to leave her home.

Axel/Noah is that person. He was a priest when they first met. They were never supposed to fall in love but they do anyway. Years later they find themselves in the same place, Verge, a BDSM club.

What will these two do when they are snowed in together? Will they be able to deal with their past?
#mustreadstory

“I wanted to push you to safeword,” he confesses, a note of regret in his voice. “But you won’t, will you?”
“No,” I whisper. My throat tightens. I want to open my eyes, but I want to obey him even more. “Why would I ever need to safeword with you?”
“I’m not safe, Chandra.” He brushes my thighs with his lips, soft and sweet, and my head falls back, my eyes squeezing closed tighter. I’m growing accustomed to the low throb between my thighs, and pulse of need. I’m riding it like a high. I can control this. I can take this. I’m strong, and I can do this.
When he suckles the skin at my thighs, I arch my back. I let out an involuntary whimper, and my mind flashes to our first time together. I remember.

We’re in his bed, sheets of pristine white tangled around our bodies, and he holds me as if he doesn’t want me to fly away, so close our sweat-slicked skin melds together as one. He’s trembling himself, exercising restraint like a bridled stallion. I can feel the way he wants to claim me with savage, hard thrusts. But it’s my first time, and he doesn’t want to hurt me.
He took his time ravishing my body, kissing every inch of me until my whole body teemed with need, working his way down with flutters of adoration from my temple to my toes. There isn’t a place on my body that hasn’t been blessed with his mouth, not a place he hasn’t worshipped with his tongue or hands. And now I want him. Now I need him in me, the sudden desperate longing clawing at my chest. I’m a virgin and sex scares me, but now I need him like the sun-parched earth needs rain. I’ll wither and die until he makes me his. Though they would damn us to hell, every single one of them, my heart knows better. My heart knows the truth.
This is right. This is perfect.
“I’ll be as gentle as I can,” he whispers in my ear, the deep, tender voice making tears spring to my eyes.
“Not too gentle,” I whisper, a joke and a plea that makes him chuckle.
“I love you,” he whispers, as he glides into me. My chest expands with the words and motion, and I clasp my arms around his broad, muscled back.
“I love you,” I whisper, a delicious friction fusing our bodies together.

TO: The guy who dumped me
FROM: The woman hired to advance your career
RE: I am 150,000% over you.

Alastair,

I’m on the 11:14 train out of London, so I’ll be there by 3:00. To make this as painless as possible, I thought it would help to establish key ground rules:
  1. No rehashing our past relationship. Yes, we were engaged, but it’s been twelve years and I’m over you.
  2. I’m very good at my job and that job is to help you shed the “reclusive” part of the whole “reclusive rock star” vibe you’ve got going on. Brace yourself.
  3. My plan is to have this wrapped up by Friday, so save your smoldering looks until I’m gone, please. (I assume you still smolder?) I’m immune now. See item #1.

I’ll see you in a few hours.
Remi

P.S. My cousin is getting married at the beginning of August. Guess who’s a bridesmaid? Funny, huh? Almost as funny as the fiancée you dumped because you thought she was married to her job now saving yours. Have I mentioned I’m totally, completely 150,000% over you?

Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

They say it’s always the one you least expect …

Andino Marcello made his choices—the right ones for duty and famiglia. But even the right choices have consequences. He’s never been more aware of that fact than he is now. The thing is, Andino isn’t the same man he once was. The mafia wants what it wants. He’ll push until they all break. Even her.

They say love shouldn’t hurt …

Haven Murphy needs to move on—from her pain and the man who caused it. But the faster she tries to run, the more things stay the same. She never thought it would end like this for them. The thing is, Haven isn’t the same woman she once was. The heart wants what it wants. She’ll fight until it all lets go. Even him.

How far will he go for love?

All the way to the very bitter end.

That’s his vow.

REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Vow is the conclusion of Andino and Havens story. And what a story it is. We begin a little later after the last book. Everyone is heartbroken and falling apart. Now the question is how will everyone heal?

Andino has made his choice, and Haven has to come to terms with that. But you will find while reading this story that love is never easy. and that emotions are sticky and not rational.

I had a hard time with the back and forth and watching Haven (her being such a strong character) go back to Andino continually. BUT as always there is a reason for everything. BK writes an amazing story that gives us a happy ending between Andino and Haven but wanting more in the overall story.

SEE WHERE IT ALL STARTED WITH DUTY, ANDINO + HAVEN DUET PART ONE!

BUY NOW!

SYNOPSIS:

They say heavy is the head that wears the crown …

Andino Marcello’s world is turned upside down when he becomes the next heir apparent to the Marcello empire. He was comfortable in his place as a Capo, but comfort is for the weak in the world of mafioso. The boss’s seat is waiting. It takes meeting a tattooed beauty who has no idea who Andino is or the criminal legacy he now carries beneath his three-piece suits, and charming smile for him to finally bend the rules set out for him. That doesn’t mean he can keep her.

They say things that never challenge you won’t change you …

Haven Murphy is doing her own thing, and she does it well. The owner of a successful Brooklyn strip club, she makes it her only goal to never fail.

She’s just trying to live her life when a morning jog puts her face to face with a man that will change the direction of her life with a single conversation. She knows there’s a dark side to him beyond his good looks and three-piece suits, but it’s hard for her to care when she wants him. That doesn’t mean he can be hers.

He’s going to break her heart; she’s going to keep his.

Because duty waits on no one.

goodreads-badge-add-38px

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have to be honest and say I do hate to wait for the next book so I did wait a little bit to read this one, and I am happy I did since I could not put this story down.

Andino is a man with the world on his shoulders. He hates it but takes it as it is. When he meets Haven by chance while jogging life takes a turn for him.

Haven is an independent woman that doesn’t need a man. She is equal to Andino which I loved. These two are a wonderfully hot couple. I loved this story.

God, I love this series. I couldn’t wait to get Law’s book and what a story it is. I didn’t see Law getting a hot FBI agent as his Queen but if we know anything it is that Madison will give us what we need even if we don’t know it.

This is a freaking hot story I almost thought my kindle was going to go up in flames. I loved this story and couldn’t put it down. I think we all need a Law in our lives!

Alpha’s Bane by Renee Rose & Lee Savino📕Reviewed📕

 

 

 

Trey

I never thought I’d have a girl like Sheridan. A pack princess–beautiful, smart, one of the elite. She picked me. She gave me her heart, her innocence.
Hurting her was my biggest regret. But then she betrayed us all.

Now she’s back–sent to spy on our pack.
She wants revenge.
But my wolf…he just wants her.

Sheridan

He crushed my heart and broke my trust. I ruined his life.
Now we have to work together, and it’s killing me.
I want to hate him. But more than that…I want his mark.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love this series. Yes, I have been keeping up with it, but you can read this one as a standalone.

We finally get Trey’s story and what a story it is.

Trey has been in love with the same girl since high school. But to save his mother and himself he walked away from everything he ever knew to protect them all.

Sheridan has loved Trey since the moment she met him. But she had a bright future and her parents didn’t want her to screw it all up for a boy. So when Trey broke up with her for no reason she figured it had to do with that. But when he disappeared and she had no other choice but to go to school, Sheridan made the most of it.

Years later they meet again. But will they let the same mistakes happen? Or will they finally admit they are fated to be mated and put their past behind them?

 


His jacket is still warm from his skin. I pull it tighter around me and shiver. The world falls away until it’s just me and Trey in this black box. No space, no time, just a heady scent rising between us and his dick poking me in my stocking-clad leg. Yes, please.

Then he clears his throat and takes a step back.

What? No!

“Thanks for helping out. Luka’s wanted us to hire help since the night crowd picked up.” He walks to to the door and holds it open without meeting my eyes. “I’ll let you get back to it.”

I’m frozen, too shocked to even glare at him. I strut in here like a goth’s wet dream and he’s just gonna…not?

Not that I expected him to pull me in here, strip off my naughty outfit, and fuck me against the wall. I did not want that. No way.

I stand there, biting my lip, and after a few seconds I realize I’m staring at his belt. Specifically, several inches below it. Several looooong inches.

“Fuck,” Trey growls, and stomps off, leaving me horn-gry.

So. Very. Horn-gry.

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow! For my first Trilina Pucci story, I have to say I am in love. I could not put this book down.

What starts off as an insta-lust between King and Drew turns into an epic love story. At first, I was a little bit of what the heck is going on when it came to Drew and Nick. And I really wanted to slap Drew and tell her to get the heck away from him. But she was able to figure that out all on her own.

Then you have King. He is one intense guy. You never know exactly where he is coming from unless it comes to Drew. For such a hard guy when he meets Drew he knows exactly what he wants and it is her. But when she walks away from him will he ever forgive her?

I really loved this story and even the side characters! I can’t wait to see where Trilina goes next!

Excerpt
“What are you willing to give me?” Because I want it all.
“I’m undecided.” I hate the look on his face. It’s fear,
he’s afraid I’ll hurt him again.
“So just tell me to stop when I cross a line. I’ll only go
as far as you trust me to go. Deal.” He nods his head hesitantly as my hand
finds the top button of his shirt, I undo it slowly making my way to each
before his shirt is completely undone. I only stop to briefly trace the tattoo
on his chest. God, I missed this body. His twelve pack casts a heavy shadow
from beneath the shirt and I run my fingers over his rock-hard stomach and up
to his chest, leaning in to kiss the tattooed area.
“This okay?” I ask from pressed lips against his chest
pulling back to look into his eyes.
“Fucking you isn’t my problem. It’s what to do with you
after.” Smacking his drink down on the bar top he puts his hands on my waist,
walking me backward away from the bar and then jerks me forward eliciting a
surprised yelp as I’m hoisted over his shoulder. “See that’s the problem”
bringing his hand down on my ass hard, “The way I see it, this is all you get.
I’ll give you my cock but that’s it. That’s the only deal I’ll make with you.
Take it or leave it.” It’s a start.
Without a hesitation I whisper, “Take it. But it won’t be
enough.” He places me back on my feet and looks me up and down, his expression
mirrors my own frustration.
“I hate that fucking outfit. I want you naked. Now.” His
words leave little room for debate.
“What? What’s wrong with my outfit?” I look at him like he’s
lost his mind.  
“It restricts access…” crossing his arms he grins, waiting
for me to disrobe.
“I’m not taking off my clothes in the middle of this room.”
He has lost his mind.
“We’re alone and last I checked it’s a fucking sex club.
Take your goddamn clothes off so I can bury my dick inside that tight wet
pussy, Drew.”
I’m fucking dripping the minute he growls at me but I take
all the time in the world, slipping off each shoulder giving my tyrant his own
private show. The more time I take the more his jaw tenses. God, I love riling
this man up.  
“You realize the longer you take the harsher the punishment.
I will take out every one of the seconds, on that ass tonight.”  
“Promises, promises.” I challenge back. He grabs his cock
adjusting the bulge, groaning with the motion.
“You have ten seconds to get it off then I’m ripping it off
myself.” His demeanor couldn’t be more serious. He will tear this very expensive,
amazing outfit off my body without so much as a second thought.
“Ten.” I start on one of my heels unhitching the ankle
strap.
“Nine.” finishing, I move to the other.
“Eight.” The strap around my ankle gets stuck as I start to
panic. I’m never going to make it. Fuck! I’m so hot, I don’t know which outcome
I want more. His punishment or my victory.
“Seven.” Fuck it, I rip it off my foot and pull down my
right shoulder strap starting to shimmy.
“Six.” I start looking around the room, “Five.” I scope out
where I could go to buy some more time. “Four.” I love this outfit.
“Three.” Son-of-a-bitch.
“Two.” Struggling with the zipper it finally comes loose and
I push my jumpsuit down to my ankles.  
“One.”

destined for a brighter future. But that was until she was taken. 
Stolen from her mundane, orderly life, she was drugged, and

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Holy sh*t… I have to say I knew, I knew this ended on a cliffy but da*nit, S.M made sure that I will be waiting and waiting for the next book to come out.

This story starts in a horrible place. Really in every woman’s nightmare to be honest. Sophia has no idea why she has been kidnapped and is now being auctioned off to horrible men. Just when she is ready to either die or finally go to a horrible man, her prayers are answered and she is saved.

Sophia now finds herself away from these horrible men and in the arms of her brother. She never knew her brother was in a secret service type team. Sophia soon finds out that this elite team is more then it seems, and that she may be in more danger than she ever thought.

* On a side note. I know some people might pass on this story due to the cliffhanger. BUT DON’T! This story is freaking awesome.

Exmas by Winter Renshaw📕 Reviewed📕

 

#NewRelease #WinterRenshaw #Exmas #HolidayRomance #AvailableNow

 

This Christmas, I’ll be getting a visit from a man in a suit, only it won’t be Santa.

Let me first say: Reed York was never my boyfriend. He was the pen. I was the company ink. Though if you want to get technical, we were more like colleagues-who-hated-each-other … with benefits.

Everything was fine until the charming jerk went behind my back, stole my promotion, and became my boss—literally overnight.

Refusing to work beneath him (professionally speaking and otherwise), I transferred 2,014 miles away to our Chicago division, and I’ve spent the past year trying to remember how much I hated his panty-melting smirk so I can forget how much I secretly loved the way his ocean eyes lit every time I walked into the room.

But he’s just announced a last-minute site visit the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, and on top of that, he’s audaciously designated me as his ‘right hand gal’ during his visit. If he thinks he has a snowball’s chance in this hell at getting back in my good graces, he’s got another thing coming.

Reed York might be a man used to getting everything he’s ever wanted, but Joa Jolivet is a woman that never forgets.

He can put me on his Christmas list all he wants, but everyone knows naughty boys only get coal.

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Christmas stories in my experience can be a hit or miss kind of thing. But this one I had to try since I really do enjoy Winter’s stories. And with the title and blurb, it really made me want to read.

To be honest I am really surprised how much I enjoyed this story. Even though it is based in the time span of Christmas time it doesn’t center around it. Reed and Joa have/had a relationship that spans a year before we even get started with their story.

Winter does go back and forth from present and past, which in some books can get confusing, but not this one. She makes sure that when you are going back and forth it makes sense in that time span.

Again this is an enjoyable holiday story with an HEA.

 

Reed

“Pam said you were looking for me?” Joa stands at the threshold of the conference room, favoring the hall side, her hands braced against the door jamb. Everything about her says she’s trying like hell to physically resist me.

I take my time checking my watch. “Do you always take three-hour lunches?”
Her arms tighten across her chest. “I was with a client.”
“Do you always let your clients kiss you?”
Her jaw hangs loose. “You were watching me?”
“Not watching. I looked outside and happened to see. Joa, why don’t you come in and shut the door.”
She hesitates, nostrils slightly flared, and then her arms drop to her sides and she exhales before stepping inside and shutting the door.
“You don’t have to stand all the way over there.” I chuff, finding amusement in the fact that she’s still digging her heels in. “I’m not going to bite. Only did that once. You didn’t like it, remember?”
“I can’t believe we’re having this conversation right now.”
“I can’t believe we’re having a conversation, period.” I rise, buttoning my suit coat as I make my way to her. “And I also can’t believe I had to fly two thousand miles across the country to get you to even look at me.”
“Really? Reed? You can’t believe that?” Her tone is mocking, her angled brows a stark contrast on her sweet face. She’s never been good at looking angry. It doesn’t suit her.
“All I wanted to do that day was tell you how sorry I was—”
“—sorry?!” She laughs, refusing to let me explain that my hands were tied. I was tapped that morning and told I had no choice but to take a job for which I never applied—a job that I didn’t even want—and that was before I knew the half of what was going on. “You were sorry? You wished me luck that morning, Reed. And then you took the job right out from under me. You knew how much I wanted that job and you just … took it. And then you stand here a year later with the audacity to act like I owe you a chance to apologize.”
“You don’t owe me anything, Joa.”
Her lips part, as if she already had a response prepared, but she stops herself, apparently at a loss for words. And I could be imagining this, but I swear her expression softened just a hair.
“Look—” I begin to say until she waves her hand through the air to silence me.
“Please. Let’s not waste our time talking about something that happened a lifetime ago,” she says. Funny how a year ago feels like a lifetime to her. It feels like only yesterday to me.

Criminal by Jane Henry & Loki Renard📕Reviewed📕

#NewRelease #Criminal #JaneHenry  #LokiRenard #KindleUnlimited #AvailableNow

Amazon: http://smarturl.it/CriminalRenardHenry
Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2AwcWXS

Synopsis:

He’s everything I hate. And he’s going to break me.

I thought I could take the law into my hands. I was wrong.

When I trespassed in the territory of the FBI’s most wanted, I thought I’d earn respect, maybe even a promotion. Instead, I was caught.

He’s going to strip me of everything — my clothes, my pride, my limits. He’s going to make me endure shameful punishment and worse than that, pleasure.

I can’t help myself.

I’m falling in love with a monster.

Everything about him is just plain… criminal.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I could not put this story down. Jane and Loki bring you into the world of criminals and FBI agents. When Sonya is caught in a very bad situation she is taken hostage by a man that does not make her life easy at all.

Colt is that man that take Sonya in his care. He locks her in a basement and makes her his prisoner. But what happens in that basement may change both Colt and Sonya’s future forever.

I loved this story, and hope these two authors come together again for another hot and intense story.

 

Excerpt

He plays by no one’s rules but his own, and I fucking love it.

I took my life in my hands by putting myself at Colt’s mercy. He could have been a monster. He could have raped me. Killed me. And I walked right into his lair and told myself I was brave. But now? Now, this is a choice I make. I could tell them no, that they’re not going to humiliate me like this. I can retain my pride, walk away from this job and do something…normal. I could play by the rules.

And feel the fire within me ebb away a little every day. Say good-bye to my dreams. And…never know what it’s like to be punished over my man’s knees in front of another man.

My intellect is horrified.

My body thrums with the need to say fuck politically correct.

And isn’t that brave? Women have fought for years to retain their dignity, their autonomy. And this is my choice. I could walk away from this now and know I caved and did what I was supposed to instead of what I craved. And holy hell, do I want back on the force.

Colt stands, his eyes locked on mine. He shrugs out of his dress coat. The only sounds in the room are the silky glide of fabric as he takes his coat off, mingled with my heavy breathing. I glance at Rico. His gaze is dispassionate, his lips tucked in a firm, stern line. This man holds my future in his hands. My dreams. He’s giving me one last chance, and I’m not going to fuck this up. Then the sound of a belt clasp gets my attention, and my eyes fly back to Colt. One sharp tug, and the belt slithers ominously through the loops.

I stop breathing. I’m frozen in place, watching Colt coil the belt before he lays it on the floor. His eyes still on me, he deliberately unfastens his sleeve and rolls it up, revealing his strong, muscled forearm. When both sleeves are rolled up, a silent declaration that he has a job to do and that job is punishing my ass, he picks up the belt. I watch him fist the buckle and wrap the leather around his hand, leaving a short, sturdy leather strap. With his free hand, he grabs the back of a chair, and the legs scrape along the floor. He folds his huge, powerful frame onto the chair, his eyes locked on mine, and wordlessly points to his knee. I swallow, willing myself to breathe. To let this go.

To trust him.

He will not force me across his knee but wants me to put myself there. To prove to Rico that I’m doing this of my own volition. That I can handle this stab to my pride and submit myself to authority.

Can I?

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have to say for my first Dylan Allen story I was at first on the bubble for a while. The first 25% of the story is almost a get to know the past yous. Each of them telling us how they got to the spot they are in. And in the spot that Hayes and Confidence are in it really is kind of funny.

I enjoy Confidence greatly. She brings life into this story after what you read about Hayes. And I have to say Hayes can be a real jerk, but Confidence sticks to her guns.

I did find the attraction between these two off the charts. But the build with their relationship is what kept me reading. I loved it. I will be reading more of Dylan’s books.

Series: Ravens Ruin by Marie James 📕Reviewed📕

 

Title: Sins of the Father: A Ravens Ruin Novel
Series: Ravens Ruin 

Author: Marie James
Genre: MC/Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 11, 2018
Blurb

I’m not misunderstood.I’m not confused about my position in life.

I’m not looking for answers to explain why I am the way I am.

This is the logic others use to try to make sense of me. According to them,
there has to be a reason for my apathy. There has to be some sort of
explanation for the calculating way I run my Club. There has to be a root cause
for my depravity.

They can’t wrap their heads around the fact that I’m evil, that I’m darkness
personified. Doing so would force them to acknowledge that the Devil has left
Hell and is living among them.

Most people may think I’m Satan, but I answer to Lynch, President of the Ravens
Ruin MC, and the Antichrist doesn’t have sh*t on me.

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Marie James is a new author to me and omg now I am kicking myself. There is so much wrong with this story that it makes it right.

Never have I thought that the MC club was a safe, clean, and happy go lucky place. But if you did you are not reading the right books. Marie brings a dark twist to the MC story. I will say that I did feel at times when they were talking in Church that I felt like I was missing something. I am not sure if I am as this is #1 but that doesn’t mean that she didn’t branch off from another MC to make this one. So I am going back to read her other stories.

First off, I have to say I loved ALL the characters in this book. And that is unusual. Candi/Zoe has no idea what she is getting into. So we walk into Raven Ruin through her eyes. Molly is her friend that gets Candi in but that is about all Molly does, to begin with.

Lynch, is a dick. He is on his own level of madness. But where his MC comes in that is his family. For whatever madness he finds that what he does it for. But now that Candi has walked into his club, she is what he craves.

Title: Claiming Candy
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2018

 

Blurb
Trick or Treat, Candy’s sweet.
We’ll give her something hard to eat.
We’ve waited long, behind jail bars.
But this Halloween, we’ll make her ours…
Rough, untamed, and
recently escaped from the psych ward at Tucker Prison. They say we’re
dangerous—that we’re a couple of animals. That we’re unhinged, deranged
maniacs.
…They ain’t wrong.
Tonight, we’re on
the run, and on the prowl. And when we tumble upon the “date” auction at the
local college sorority and see her up on that auction stage?
Well, we know we’ve found our prize.
She’s far too
innocent for two big, hardened, beasts like us. But, that
ain’t gonna stop us. Nothing will. There’ll be no shaking us once we’ve caught
a scent of her, no holding us back once we’ve gotten a peek of those sweet
curves and honeyed lips.
She’s never been
touched. We’ve gone far too long without. And tonight, little
red is about to meettwo big bad wolves out in the woods.
Two big mouths, the
better to eat her with. Four big hands, the better to hold her
tight between us with. Two big…well, let’s just say the better to claim her
with.
Something wicked her
way comes. Two somethings, actually. And tonight, sweet little Candy is about
to find two things that go bump in the night…
Grab some candy,
hunker down, and get ready to pull the blankets up to your eyes! If you’re
looking for hot, wild, a little scary, and fun, with a big ‘ole helping of
wrong, you’re in the right place! This book contains themes that may be
triggering to some readers. But, if you’re brave enough to get through it, I
promise there’ll be a treat for you at the end ;).
This mfm romance
is all about her – no m/m. As with all my books, this standalone novella has no
cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Not everything is what it seems. But isn’t that what makes a great book? Madison brings a great story to life with a Halloween twist.

When a sorority holds its annual Halloween party with the newbies up for auction Candy has little idea on what they really do.
When two wolves start bidding hard on her it starts freaking her out, as it should. But soon she will do anything she can to keep those wolves.
Those wolves are Jensen and Roarke. Everyone should have a couple of them. When they see Candy up there on that stage they know they have to have her.

This is a balls all the way in kind of story. (haha) Loved it.

KENNEDY

I was paying off a debt. 
One that wasn’t mine. 
But when your father screws over an outlaw motorcycle club and then disappears with their money, you have two choices. 
Pay with your body, or pay with your blood. 
With a little sister to protect, I did what I had to. 
I gave them me. 

REPO

I was born a protector. 
Whatever it took, I did it.
My family, my brothers and the club’s name—I made sure that anyone who crossed us, or at least anyone who tried, learned quickly why they shouldn’t.
Seeing her sitting at the bar, I was drawn to her. Her scars, her bruises, and the light around her. 
Without knowing me, she instantly had my back.
So it was only fair I had hers.

She walked in with the enemy. 
But there was no way in hell I was letting her walk out with them.

Virulent

Folie á Deux – Book One

by Dani René & Yolanda Olson

Publication Date: December 4, 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance

We’ve always been different.

Normal is something that’s bored us from the moments we were spit into this world, screaming and crying, wondering why we were dispelled from the sanctity of the darkness we both crave.

I guess in a way, it’s made us stronger than we thought we were.

Especially now since we have each other.

I’d do anything for her and she would do anything for me.

Lie.

Cheat.

Steal.

Kill.

We were never meant to be together, but the universe has a way of taking two completely different disasters and putting them together to let destruction reign freely. Our story is born of violence, deceit, and mischief, but it’s one you won’t soon forget.

Welcome to the world according to Pike & Molly.

*Warning: This is an extremely dark, taboo story. There are numerous triggers throughout the story.

Series: Stories in the Absurd by D.P Payne📕Reviewed📕

Copy of Paranormal Absurd Facebook Cover

 

 

PARCHED by Gwyn McNamee writing as DP Payne is #LIVE

#oneclick→http://www.books2read.com/ParchedDP

A wendigo controlled by a curse. An insatiable mystery woman. One sexy, crazy ride.

Greed. For the last 4,000 years, it’s been my curse.

Every day, I live with the repercussions of the terrible choices I made.

I thought I’d seen it all…then a black aura crosses my path.

The beautiful woman it belongs to sends my world into a tailspin.

She gets under my skin, hypnotizing me with her adventurous and kinky nature. I almost forget I know nothing about her.

Thinking with the wrong head can certainly get a man in trouble, but in this case, it could mean an end worse than my curse.

***Parched contains content for those 18 years and older only. It is crazy, over-the-top, and kinky. If you don’t enjoy steamy and sometimes raunchy scenes, this book probably isn’t for you. Skip to Cursed, book two, which is considerably tamer but still very steamy, and start there. These are stand-alones so you can pick up any of the books in any order.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

D.P. Payne comes out swinging with her first book. I am a huge paranormal reader and I enjoyed this one.

We get a wendigo named Waylon and everything is from his point of view, which I really enjoyed. Waylon is hungry and finds a woman with an aura that is black. Never before has anyone heard of it. But Waylon wants her, not for it but for her.
This is a great novella and was happy to read it.

 

 

CURSED by Gwyn McNamee writing as DP Payne is #LIVE
CursedPharaoh #NewRelease→www.books2read.com/CursedDP

 

A cursed pharaoh. A determined archaeologist. Three days to find true love.

The dank depths of the Egyptian ruins reveal something I’ve been searching for my entire adult life—the tomb of the mysterious pharaoh, Nebtawyre Mentuhotep IV.

And somehow, the sexy king steps from his sarcophagus very much alive.

Lust soon overpowers reason as I fall down the rabbit hole with Wyre.

He claims me completely—my mind, body, and soul.

We only have three days to break a 4,000-year-old curse placed on him by his crazy ex.

If we don’t, he’ll return to his tomb and take my heart with him.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I think this is my favorite one so far.

We get a pharaoh that just can’t keep it in his pants. When his wife finds him screwing someone else (again) she puts a curse on him. He is only allowed to wake up every 27 years for 3 days to find his forever love. Needless to say, Wyre doesn’t take it too seriously the first couple thousand years. So when he wakes up this time, he expects it to be just like always.

Moira has been looking for the tomb of Nebtawyre Mentuhotep IV for a while now. But when she finds it she never expected him to look so alive. When Moira learns of the curse neither of them takes it as she could be the love of his life. But they do make the most of it.

I really liked this story. We also get to see the couple from the last book, although you don’t have to have read it to understand this book. 🙂

#oneclick→www.books2read.com/SpiritedDP
#SexyGhost #NewRelease #HauntedOctober #SexyOctober #absurd
#Preorder Loched NOW→www.books2read.com/LochedDP

A haunted mansion. A sexy ghost. A contractor determined to fix both.

Buying and renovating the old plantation house seems like a great idea. The fact that it’s supposedly haunted by the spirit of a murdered prostitute is a minor oversight.

I don’t believe in that crap anyway.

But after a late-night rendezvous with a sexy spirit elicits a very real nocturnal emission from me, I have to rethink my belief in poltergeists…and love.

The intoxicating woman who has been trapped here for over a century casts a spell over me with her humor, courage, and passion.

I have to do something to free her from her ethereal prison.

But will my actions break her metaphysical chains, or will they release something darker into my new home?

All books in the Supernatural Love Stories in the Absurd Series are stand-alone and can be read in any order.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Although this one had me laughing out loud I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the other two before. As with the other two books that D.P. has written this one is also novella size, insta love story.

Margot is pretty fun and funny for a ghost, but I guess you have to be after so many years being stuck in one place. But when she sees Blake, for once she doesn’t want them to leave.

Blake is at the house to restore it to its natural glory. But he is not from around there so he has no idea the house he bought is hunted. When he starts hearing weird things he thinks he is going nuts.

Payne brings a ghost story to life.

LOCHED by Gwyn McNamee, writing as DP Payne, is #LIVE

#oneclick→www.books2read.com/LochedDP
#Lochness #NewRelease #HauntedOctober #SexyOctober #absurd

A legend under the surface. A woman obsessed. A destined love.

Returning to Loch Ness means coming home in more ways than one.

The monster exists. I’ve seen him. Visions of the beast haunt my dreams and waking hours.

I need to get back to the loch. To him.

When he rises from the water again, I watch him shift into a sexy Highlander right before my eyes, and everything I think I know evaporates.

He’s so much more than I imagined.

A magical attraction between us leads down a path of ancient curses, family lore, and to an unmistakable love.

But will it be enough to keep him human, or will he return to the murky depths with my heart?

REVIEW  ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This one was probably my least favorite. Although it is an inspiring story I mean who would think to do a story about the Lochness monster. And the story has some interesting twists in it. I just felt like it was to short. All of these stories are novella size, and I get that. But for some weird reason, this one seemed to short.

I would recommend this series although they are all standalone and can be read in any order!

Book 1: Part 1
Book 2: Part 2
Book 3: Part 3

About Ascension Part 1:

Leoron of Alera returns home from the Hive wars determined to protect the capital city—and last bastion of a vanished Queen’s reign—from civil war. Loyal to the bone, Leo answers the call from Prime Nial and vows to protect at any cost three unknown females arriving from Earth.

But the simple soldier is unprepared for the shock of desire that brings him to his knees at first sight of Trinity Jones. Nothing makes sense as Leo fights friend and foe alike, and discovers the woman stealing his heart has a destiny beyond anything he could have imagined.

Welcome to the Interstellar Brides® all new Ascension Saga and the planet Alera, where women from Earth not only find their mates, but fight to rule the world.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So we are getting the queens 3 daughters story now. We start with Trinity. The queen has hidden herself and her children on earth. But that has all now come to an end when the queen is taken and now the daughters have to go back to her planet and find her.

Trinity meets Leo who is in charge of keeping her and her sisters safe. When they meet sparks fly and things turn deadly.

I will say that I find it unusual that Grace turned these shorter stories into individual books. Usually, she just does one novel size book. But I enjoyed this story either way.

 

About Ascension Part 2:

Leoron of Alera has learned the truth about his new mate’s identity, but landed in the hands of her enemies. The time for secrets is over…

Welcome to the Interstellar Brides® all new Ascension Saga and the planet Alera, where women from Earth not only find their mates, but fight to rule the world

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So this is the second book of the three for Trinity. She is a very strong character and deserves her props for being in the middle of a whole new world for herself. She has grown up with her mother telling her what to do if anything like this should ever happen, but to be in the middle of it is totally different.

Leo is a strong male counterpart. But he thinks himself not worthy of her, with his past and the things he has done he thinks Trinity is too pure for his love. Will she be strong enough to fight her enemies and to show Leo that he is exactly what she wants.

Great second book.

About Ascension Part 3: (Coming November 15th)

Although Trinity grew up on Earth, she’s Aleran. She’s been chosen by the artificial intelligence that bestows special gifts upon those deemed worthy. She’s been chosen to rule. To lead the planet and avoid the rising tides of war.

Leo is hers. She feels the truth every time he touches her. But enemies hunt them, her sisters are off on dangerous missions of their own, the queen is still missing, and in the royal court, nothing is what is seems…

Blurb:

She’s angry that I left. I’m angry that I died.

It’s the trouble with our two lives: we don’t only have one past to work through, but two. Double the pain, twice the betrayal.

A million times the tragedy.

***The Moon is the story of Merlin and Nimue from the New Camelot trilogy. It’s recommended that you read the trilogy first, as there are American King spoilers in The Moon.***

(Cards of Love is a massive multi-author project, a series of love letters to the mysterious and inspirational world of tarot cards. These can be read in any order, as the only thing the Cards of Love books share is their common inspiration from the world of tarot.)

Excerpt

A hiss in the darkness, then a flame, bright and dancing and unwelcome.

A match, I think, and then I think, why?

And then: where am I?

“You’re awake,” says a voice like water. A voice I love. It still doesn’t help me figure out where I am.

“Am I?” I ask. “Awake?”

Like I said earlier, I don’t dream as such, but when I close my eyes, the memories and visions are there, dogging my sleep. And I think maybe—yes, there is also a memory like this. A memory of a dark-haired girl and a cave sparkling with light, the night air heavy with the ecstatic cries we fed it.

“You are awake, Merlin.” The flame moves, calves another flame, and then is blown out. A candle now glows softly against the face of a woman standing at the end of the bed I’m on.

Dark brows arch high over clear blue eyes and a long nose curves gracefully down the woman’s oval face, framed by a high forehead and cheekbones, and a beautiful, if narrow, jaw. Her lips are on the thin side, but perfectly sculpted, giving her an expressive, fascinating mouth. Coffee-dark hair hangs in glossy sheets around her face and down her back.

She’s haunting. Haunting even as a girl, but now even more so as a woman.

“Nimue,” I say, and for the first time I notice how thirsty I am. I make to sit up—and realize my hands are tied to the bed.

Nimue sets the candle down on an end table, and it illuminates the space enough to show me that

I’m indeed in a room and not in the damp mouth of a cave.It means it’s now and not then, which I suppose I should be grateful for.

After all, I died then.

A silver key glints from just below the smile of her clavicle, the bottom tip of it pointing to the sweet valley between her breasts I used to know so well. They are small and pert—her body still the lithe dancer’s body she had as a girl—and my

flesh responds to the sight of those little handfuls, the memory of them. The fantasy of her dusky nipples dragging along the underside of my aching cock is enough to have my body warming, and that’s when I really become aware that I’m not only tied to the bed, but I’m also dressed in a pair of black boxer briefs and nothing else.

Well, nothing else except for the padded cuff around my ankle.

Nimue leans forward to untie my wrist, which leaves the front of her swishy dress gaping forward enough that I can see those nipples now, dark rose and erect.

I’d tasted them frequently once upon a time.

Once upon a time, twice.

In another life, I’d known the feel of her breasts against my lips and tongue better than I’d known almost anything else.

With one of my wrists freed, Nimue straightens and nods at the other. “You can untie yourself. You’ll find that the chain allows you more than enough length to do everything you need. I’m obviously trusting you not to do anything self-destructive, but should the need arise, I can take away this particular freedom.” She says it cheerfully, almost as if the idea of taking away my freedom delights her.

The key on her chest glints as she steps back, and I understand that it’s the key that unlocks my cuff—the same cuff that is connected to a ring in the floor by a length of slender chain.

Anger comes.

And with it shame.

And with that, fear.

I died once this way, and I’d rather not do it again.

I lunge for my other wrist to untie it, needing to be free, needing to reach for Nimue to kiss her or kill her—but by the time I untie myself, she’s out the door with it shut and locked behind her.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I will say that I did not know that this story went with Sierra’s other books. So at first, I felt a little out of place. BUT it didn’t last long.

Merlin and Nimue really do have a love for the ages. This book will take you over hundreds of years of their love and reincarnations of them finding each other every time. It was not hard to give this story a 5-star rating.
Now I just have to go back and read the other stories.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I am so excited about this series of books by these authors. Clarissa came out with a bang of a story.I will be honest at first I was confused about what was going on. But it didn’t take long to figure out that this is a dark but humanely sweet story. This story is about what would you do for your child? Would you do anything to save the child you love with all your heart no matter what it did to you? And then would you do anything to save your family?I loved this novella. In what is a short amount of pages, Clarissa shows you what true love and family means. Loved it.
 
 
 

Prologue


Lillian
 
After
 
It’s finally time.
I grab one of the dull pencils from the tray and a piece of paper from the stack and place it down in front of me. Biting my lip, I stare wistfully at the sheet, wondering what I should write. If I should even write anything.
There are so many things I want to say, so much I have to explain, but none of the words in my head will suffice. She’ll never understand. She’s too innocent to know the truth.
So I opt for something else instead. Something familiar and loving, so she’ll know how much I care.
“Are you gonna start or what?” the woman across the shoddy table says while glaring at me.
I look up from my paper and gaze blankly ahead. “As soon as I know what to write.”
“You don’t get much time, y’know,” she adds, shrugging. “Suit yourself.”
I nod a few times. Advice is best not taken for granted, so I pick up the pencil and rub my lips together.
 
 
Dear Daisy,
 
You’ll probably never read this letter, but I want you to know that at least I tried. I’ve told your auntie Dana to hold onto the letters I send her until I get the chance to hand them to you myself. As much as I want to, I can’t be with you right now. But I promise it won’t be long. I’ll be with you again soon. Before you even know it.
I know you’ll be good. I know you’ll do great out there in the world.
And you know … I will find you again.
 
Love,
Mommy
 
 
Smiling, I read over the words again before my letter and those of all the other women next to me are taken by the guard as she passes us.
They’ll read the contents and decide whether it’s suitable to send.
This is how it always goes … here in prison.
There’s no choice to make, no autonomy whatsoever. Nothing but sleep, eat, work, and wait.
Wait until your time is up.
Until you can see your baby again.
But I knew the consequence when I did what I did. That I’d end up sacrificing precious time I could’ve spent with her. But it was the only choice I could make, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I had to.
It’s no one’s fault. Not mine or his.
Circumstances brought me here, and I accept that wholeheartedly.
Love … is what brought me here.
I made the ultimate sacrifice for my little girl.
For a man I couldn’t stop loving even when that same love ripped her away from me.
For both … I’d willingly hang.

About Cards of Love: Knight of Wands

A chance for a sweet future, or a recipe for disaster?

Kaitlynn

My dream was to cook my way to fame and fortune, not run myself ragged keeping my late parents’ quaint Savannah restaurant afloat. My sister is useless, I’m chronically short-staffed, and even Gertie, my antiquated oven, hates me.

Then in charges Oliver, like a Golden Knight. He’s hunky and charming and makes others feel at ease. He’s earnest and kind, optimistic and extroverted. My best friend. My sister’s ex. Picking up the slack like he never left all those years ago. Making my body shiver with the lightest touch, the slightest smile. It would be so easy to let him be my knight in shining armor. But I can’t let him, even though he makes Gertie purr like a kitten.

Oliver

I practically grew up waiting tables alongside KitKat. She’s a brilliant chef, but it’s clear she’s no manager. I’ve noticed other changes in her since her letters stopped coming to me in Iraq. There’s fire burning in her green eyes—and pain.

The kiss was meant to comfort. But it explodes into searing passion so white-hot, not even the tallest, iciest sweet tea can quench it. I shouldn’t try. She doesn’t want help, especially not mine. But a kiss like that is the beginning of a promise. A promise that won’t stop until I help her find her dream.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I adored this story. Two people that have been pulled apart for years but have kept each other up with letters. So when Oliver shows back up in town after retiring from the military and finds out Kaitlynn has taken over her families diner, he finds himself back in her life.

Kaitlynn is forced to come back and take over the family business. Her sister is a bi*ch and is no help. Everything is falling apart and there is no money, she is really just tired of it. But when Oliver walks in and offers to help her, she really doesn’t know if it is worth taking it or walking away.

I enjoyed this short story. There is a lot of emotions and conflict but the love shines through in this book. Another great book added to the Cards series.

Release Date: October 25, 2018
Cover Design: Lori Jackson Design

Synopsis

I loved him first.

Jake was my best friend in college-my very straight best friend, until one night he was more. He may have run after what happened between us, but I never forgot him. When fate puts us in the same place, five years later, he has a fiance by his side. Carina is beautiful, driven, and draws my attention almost as much as he still does. A game of truth or dare leads to a wild night and a relationship that has our feelings growing into something bigger than any of us intended. But what happens when our feelings deepen? Can I handle being with two people? If it means I can have him, I’ll love them both.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Holy crap. I had to take a couple days to figure out what I was going to say in my review for this story. I really could not put this story down. The whole thing blew me away, but the ending, the ending tore me up and then stitched me back together.

I refuse to give anything away. But know that you have to read this book. It does have MM and MFM in it, so if that is not your thing don’t read it. But if you can get past it the story is wonderful.

They hired me to keep her safe. I never planned to give her a baby.

My job was to do what I do best.
Watch my target. Protect them at all costs. Kill anyone who gets in my way.
My weapon of choice? Anything with a sharp edge.
But the second I see my newest client, I know I’m in trouble.
The pain in her eyes, her sinful body, those sky-high, take-me-hard, spiked heels I can’t ignore.
In one night, we share more than I thought possible.
Our secrets.
Our torments.
Her bed.
I never expected she’d give me so much more.
Until I find out she’s having my baby.
Then out of nowhere, the threat of danger becomes real.
But I’m ready.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, even if it means laying down my own life.
Warning. This dark and dirty romance is steamy, dangerous, and swoon-worthy. If you like slightly over the top romance stories with a dominant alpha male, this is for you! Standalone romance with no cliffhanger and a naughty happily ever after to give you all the feels.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

3 1/2 ⭐️’s

I wanted to give this story so many more stars, to be honest. But I couldn’t. This story left more questions than answers, for the story that Bella gave it was too short, and I felt like I was missing something.

I know one of the authors took her card and added it to her already growing lists of stories and she just took her already developed characters and went with it, but she warned us and to be honest I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. But with this story I did. Maybe, later on, we will get more from Blade and Sydney which would be great. But for now, it is an interesting story for sure.

BLADE
“I should go,” she whispers in a tone that’s as hesitant as the tentative expression on her face as she sits there on the side of the bed.

I want to see her shed all of that bravado for a minute.
Or for a night.
I’d like nothing more than to hold onto her and pull her body onto my lap, pressing her round, firm ass into my stiff member.
And to tell her to relax.
To let it all go.
To just be.
Or to be… with me.
As in on her bed, against the nearest wall, or any flat surface as she so desires.
“No. You shouldn’t,” I say firmly, and flash a hint of a one sided-smile. “This is your room. I’m the one who should get out of your hair so you can relax. Unless you want me to stay. We can keep talking… or I can stay and we can just…not do any talking at all. Up to you.”
She shrugs one shoulder and looks at nothing in particular, her head still facing forward as though looking my way would give too much away. “I don’t know… it’s been a while since I opened up to anyone about myself. Or maybe I never have. I supposed we can keep talking.” She throws me a glance, and I see a bit of playfulness flash across her face. “Wait, what did you mean by we can just not talk?”
“There’s a whole lot going on… between you and me. Tell me you don’t sense it.”
“Sense what exactly?” she pries shyly.
“This. Us. Chemistry. Attraction. Fire. Whatever you want to call it. Tell me you don’t feel that, Sydney,” I demand in a low, raspy whisper.
“All right. There’s… something,” she admits after a long pause.
I slowly lower our locked hands, letting the back of her hand rest on my knee. “Good.”
“So… now what?” she asks, and I hold my tongue, avoiding an answer, waiting for more from her.
That’s when I notice the very subtle way her body turns toward me. Only her leg nearest to me moves, parting slightly, showing more of her bare inner thighs. And I start to wonder if she’s wearing anything under this blouse. The hem of it rests at her upper thighs, not revealing much, except for the hint of a triangular line where her thighs touch and meet her mound. My mouth starts to water as I imagine what she must taste like. Honey, maybe. Or fruity. Definitely sweet and sinful.
“You’re staring,” she adds, shifting a little in her spot. “I’m really not great at… all of this.”
“Tell me what you want,” I say in a low, growling demand and lick my lips. Her little movement gave away something critical. I can smell her need. Her scent. And it wasn’t there before now. I know because every one of my senses is highly attuned, trained to detect the slightest of differences around me. Sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. What it tells me is that not only is she not wearing any panties, but that the simple connection of our hands, our proximity, our sitting in her bed, our earlier conversation, it all has made her wet with arousal.
It’s unmistakable.
And I’m the cause of it.
I’m a Wall Street Journal (Begging for Bad Boys, April, 2017) and USA Today (Begging for Bad Boys, Alpha for the Holidays, Shifters in the Snow: Bundle of Joy, Shifters in the Shadows) Bestselling Author.

I love reading and writing steamy, high-action romance stories about firefighters, billionaires, and alpha males who know what they want and aren’t afraid of laying claim to the women who catch their interest. I love a happy ever after ending. I enjoy reading, hiking, the countryside, and traveling to destinations unspoiled by commercial tourism, like Las Vegas… 🙂

Like so many characters in my novels, I enjoy action, romance and unexpected love connections that take your breath away. For the next while, you’ll find me plotting and writing about my latest stories on my Macbook.

He’d protect her from any threat…

But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone. 
Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.
Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.
Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid
of him
Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place. 
But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival
skills
 will become much more than lessons…

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Janie Crouch is new to me author. I have to say I enjoyed this story. I have been reading a few suspensive type books lately but this one is a page-turner and I enjoyed the second chance story. And that is not something I usually enjoy. I was hesitant to read this story just on the premise alone. I don’t like second chance stories and with a new author, it usually isn’t something I do. But the blurb was too good to pass up.

So I will say this. Give this book a chance. It really is good.

Excerpt
“I was here a couple of years ago, but only for a day or
two,” Anne told Zac, looking away. She had booked a room out of Oak Creek both
times she’d dared come back. The thought of staying at The Mayor’s Inn had been
too painful. She couldn’t even look at that hotel without feeling sick to her
stomach.
And she’d avoided everyone—particularly Zac—as much as
possible. Just in case his words about not coming back were still true. She
tried to swallow the panic that threatened to overwhelm her. Maybe he still
felt that way now, even though he hadn’t said anything at the hospital.
“There.” He pointed at her. “That look that just came into
your eyes. I saw it at the hospital. It’s like you’re afraid of me, Annie.” He
took a step closer and she instinctively one back. One of his eyebrows shot up,
letting her know she’d proved his point. “Do you think I’m going to hurt you?”
“No.” Not physically. She’d never worried that he’d hurt her
that way, despite having five inches and probably fifty pounds—all muscle—on
her.
But he was right. She couldn’t continue living in Oak Creek
with them ignoring everything that had happened that night. What had been said.
What had been done. Maybe she would’ve tried to, and to avoid Zac forever, if
he hadn’t ended up in her ER. 
But the truth was, there weren’t enough bushes in this town
for her to jump into. She was going to run into Zac. A lot.
Sometimes all you could do was face the past.
She pulled a breath in. “I’m not scared of you. I mean, I
know you would never hurt me physically. For crying out loud, you wrecked your
motorcycle rather than hit a dog.” She’d meant for her laugh to seem breezy,
but it just sounded stilted. “But yeah, I mean, we can’t pretend like that
night never happened. The stuff we did. Stuff you…we said.”
His eyes narrowed. “That night we spent together after Becky
died.”
“Yeah. That night.” As if they’d had another. “The bottom
line is, I can’t leave here, Zac. No matter what you said then, or even if you
feel the same way now.”
He shook his head, brows furrowing. “I don’t expect you to
leave. You’re obviously a respected doctor, more than competent. Why would you
think I wanted you to leave?”
Some of the tension she’d been carrying since his arrival in
the ER began to ease. He was right. Something said in grief and anger six years
ago didn’t necessarily hold true all this time later. She was silly for
thinking it did. “Okay, well, it’s good to know you don’t feel the same as you
did back then.”
He took a single predatory step closer, and she tensed
again. “I said something that night to make you think you needed to leave?”
She stared at him, her mouth flopping open like some sort of
fish. “You don’t remember what you said?”
Those words would be engrained in her memory forever.
Get out and don’t come back.
He rubbed his forehead. “That whole night is fuzzy for me.”
I can’t even bear to look at you. You just betrayed the
only person in this town who ever wanted you here. 
Tossing her naked into the hallway before flinging her
clothes at her. 
“What do you remember?” She forced the words past a throat
that seemed to have dried up.
His hand moved to the back of his neck. “Honestly, not much
at all. It’s sort of a blur.”
She retreated a step from him again. That night had been the
most important night of her life. The best. The worst. It had changed the very
fabric of her being. 
And it was sort of a blur for him.

Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About Getting Dirty:

Perfection isn’t always so perfect.
All I’ve done since I was seventeen is try to prove my father wrong.
Try to prove I am better than him and his perfect lineage. His perfect name.
Anyone who has gotten in my way of attaining that goal I consider collateral damage.
Now my life has spiraled so far out of my control, I’m free falling, and for whatever reason Jess and Jace feel like a safe haven.
They’re not. They’re two blips from my past. And that’s where I should have left them.
We come from different worlds.
Whatever we have can only exist in this moment.
They’re just two dirty mechanics.
And I’ve spent my whole life avoiding getting dirty.

REVIEW
Man, I loved this story. I have never read Aubrey Cara before and I didn’t read the blurb either, to be honest. I read this story because it is part of the Hard N’ Dirty series. So I just drove right in and I am so happy I did. I got some great freaking characters and a wonderful story.

The brothers were amazing and Madeline is a headcase. But Jace and Jess bring out the best in Madeline and she needs them so badly but refuses to accept it. That is what makes this story so wonderful. The push and pull between them all. This is a must read book and a great start to this standalone series.

About Filthy Fight:

I know better than to fall for the bad boy, a disgraced boxer, a man with demons.
I never mix business with pleasure.
My mind screams no, but my body demands.
Harder.
Faster.
More.
I’m no match for him when he fights dirty.
His dark past comes back to haunt us, but the secrets and hidden intentions only pull me closer.
I should keep it clean, but I can’t resist the
Filthy Fight.

REVIEW

Alta brought a great story to life. I enjoyed Mateo and Julep’s love story. It was intense, brought tears to my eyes, and made me want to throw my kindle across the room.

Julep is trying to get her fathers gym back up to what it was in the glory days. Shamrocks is in need of a great fighter. Her friend tells her about a fighter that is not fighting anymore due to throwing a fight and having issues with gambling. He has cleaned up his act and is looking to getting back in the game.

Mateo had his reasons for doing what he did. But he doesn’t need to explain himself to anyone- or so he feels. But when Julep shows up at his house and offers him a second chance at his dream, he just might have to come out with the truth.

These two may start out as a working relationship, but you can feel the heat right away. It doesn’t take long for them to see that there is more to their relationship than just working.
I greatly enjoyed this story about sacrifice and love.

About Hard Wood:

Cat Milnick’s Summer To-Do List

1. Get my new brewpub up and running.
2. Ignore the wickedly handsome Dom Wilde and his kinky furniture.
3. No more carpenter puns. Screw and hammer. Tongue and groove. Nail gun.
4. Focus on the beer.
5. Remember: If I fail, I’ll have to go back to working for my evil ex-boyfriend.
6. Don’t get turned on when Dom calls me his little spitfire in his sexy, smoky growl.

And above all, don’t get too attached to his…ahem…‘hard wood.’

REVIEW

I love Tara Crescent and was so excited to read this story in the Hard N’ Dirty series and it really did not disappoint. The characters are very interesting and the chemistry is off the hook. The only issue I had is that I felt like I was coming into a series because of the other characters. Like everyone had their own stories and I should already know their love stories.

But when it comes to this story it is pretty dang good. Cat has just moved to the same town as Dom to start a brewery. She is a tightly wound woman that knows this is all she has and needs it to work. But when she meets Dom she finds something else she really wants too.

Dom is a carpenter and is good with his hands. He made some items for Cat’s new restaurant and they become friends. But the chemistry is just too much for him to ignore. But Dom has a problem with commitment. So what will he do when he finds himself falling for this wonderful woman that has fallen into his lap?

Title: Blaze
Author: Renee Rose
Amazon
Goodreads
Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About Blaze:

A dirty talking fireman + His fiery new recruit
= Enough heat to start a three alarm fire.

Lia:
Here’s what I know: Firemen are nicer than cops.
More predictable. They have that same hero desire but it burns brighter.
They’re not quite as power-hungry or controlling. Except for the captain.
They call him Blaze and he’s got a streak of controlling cop for sure.
It’s a trait that unfortunately makes my knees go weak in a boss.
Especially a beefy fire captain boss.

Blaze:
Having smoking hot Lia Burke in my firehouse might be the death of me.
I can’t stand the other guys ogling her. They are not exactly PC.
It’s locker room talk around here twenty-four seven.
I swear I’m going to have a sexual harassment claim on my hands in less than a month.
And I’ll probably be the guy who crosses the line first.

Note: This is a stand-alone steamy romance with an HEA and no cheating.

REVIEWThis is the 4th book of the Hard N’ Dirty (all standalone) series. Blaze is a hot and dirty firefighter based story. In this one, we get Lia and Blaze the captain of their station.

About Hammered:

The environmental chick? Yeah, she’s hot.
I’d love to bend her over the hood of her stupid little electric car and smack that ass.
But the project comes first.
I don’t have time for dating, especially tree-huggers. I have to get this build completed on time.
But a kiss never hurt anyone… right?
She just better not be playing me to get info on my boss. Or shut down this project.
Because she’ll find out that I can give as good as I get.
That I have creative ways to punish her.
Get her begging for more…

REVIEWI usually enjoy Alexis Alvarez and her stories. But I didn’t particularly like this one. I liked the main two characters, Talia and Dane. But I didn’t really like the story or the secondary set of characters. I did finish the book because I wanted to find out how they got the bad guys, and of course, the book was yummy LOL.

Bottom line, I could not connect with the storyline and the secondary characters, but I did enjoy Talia and Dane when they were together.

I am a little iffy on if I would recommend this book but since it is part of this series I guess I would. They are all standalone so it would have to be up to the reader to read.

About Beauty & the LumberJacks
After this logging season, I’m never having sex again. Because: reasons.
But first, I have a gig earning room and board and ten thousand dollars by ‘entertaining’ 8 lumberjacks. Eight strong and strapping Paul Bunyan types, big enough to break me in two.
There’s Lincoln, the leader, the stern, silent type…
Jagger, the Kurt Cobain look-alike, with a soul full of music and rockstar moves…
Elon & Oren, ginger twins who share everything…
Saint, the quiet genius with a monster in his pants…
Roy and Tommy, who just want to watch…
And Mason, who hates me and won’t say why, but on his night tries to break me with pleasure…
The lumberjacks own me: body, mind and orgasms.
But when they discover my secret–the reason I’m hiding from the world–everything changes.
REVIEW

I have to say that I was not expecting these many men in this book. I loved it though. Lee brought a young woman in need to a group of men that had no idea that they had this much protection in them.

This book has suspense, love, hot sex, and sweetness in the least expected place. I loved it. What a way to end this series. 🙂

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have not read or heard of Katy Regnery before. When I saw this cover from another author facebook page I loved it, and then read the blurb I thought WTH. WOW. Where have I been! I loved the twist and turns she gave this book. And I love how she turned Cinderella around.

This is a dark and stormy read that brings you into a whole new world. I never have read such a different twist on a fairytale and I loved it. I felt for Ashley right off the bat. That poor girl never had a chance until. Now that she is stuck with her step-father and brothers she is in so much more trouble.

When she gets to her fairy godfather. Gus is able to hide her and save her for a while. While Ashley is in hiding she finds her prince in a ruff and rugged ex-secret serviceman named Julian. Who has his own past that he is running from.

I loved this story and will be going to purchase the others to read!

Excerpt
All rights reserved. Used with permission.


Instead of going inside, I walk around the house, to the backyard, to see if I can help bring in any dirty dishes, but the picnic table is empty. All traces of our dinner party have already been cleaned up by the Ducharmes siblings.

 
I look up at the midnight sky, at the dozens and dozens of stars, and I wonder if Gus is right. What he says feels right, but I feel very young and very small as I stare up at the universe. It’s not wrong to give yourself over to loving if the chance arises.
 
“We get amazing night skies up here.”
 
I look over my shoulder and find Julian, tall, barefoot, and beautiful, walking toward me.
 
“Yes, you do,” I answer, giving him a shy and tentative smile before I turn my attention back upward.
 
My skin prickles with awareness. My lips tingle, remembering the insistent pressure of his. And elsewhere in my body, I clench hard, willing those deep-set tremors not to start up again right now. I want to believe what Gus has told me—that liking and wanting a man isn’t wrong—but it’s new to me, and I need a little time to reconcile my desire and conscience together.
 
“When I lived in DC, it was what I missed the most, besides Noelle. More than the cheese. More than the beer. More than the skiing.” He stops, standing beside me, staring up at the firmament. “I missed Vermont’s night skies. And the millions of stars.”
 
“I can see why,” I say. “When I lived in LA, I never saw stars.” I giggle. “I mean, I saw the people kind, but not the sky kind.”
 
“Who’s the most famous person you ever met?”
 
“Hmm. Maybe . . . Gigi Hadid . . . or Bella? Hmm . . . Or Cara Delevingne? Kate Moss mentored my m—Tig for a while, um, and she knew Gisele, of course. Also—”
 
“Wait a second! Gisele? Did you ever meet Tom Brady?” he asks, his voice eager.
 
“Let me guess.” I glance at his face. “Patriots fan?”
 
“The biggest.”
 
“Tig went to their wedding, but I never met him. Sorry,” I say, giggling as he lays a hand over his heart and pretends to cry. “Speaking of the rich and famous, Noelle tells me you met the vice president while you worked in Washington.”
 
“She did?” His teasing expression disappears quickly as he straightens, dropping his hand. “Uh, yeah. Long time ago.”
 
“Not so long,” I say. 
 
“Yeah, well . . . I guess it just feels like a while ago.” I wait for him to say more, hoping to learn why he left Washington so abruptly, but he stretches his arms over his head and yawns. “I’m tired. You must be exhausted.”
 
“At school I was on the dining hall rotation, which meant cooking for one hundred souls regularly. Tonight was a breeze.”
 
“Your soup was amazing.”

“Thank you.”

“The steak too.”

“Thank you again.”

“And the tart.”

“That was your sister. Let her know you thought so.”

“And the kiss.”

 
“Thank—” I’m grinning at him, but my eyes widen at his unexpected compliment, and I immediately look back up at the sky. It’s dark out so he can’t see my blush.
 
His chuckle is soft and low beside me, and maybe I’m wicked for not feeling more guilty, but I feel my smile grow as I trace Orion’s belt. I don’t dare look at him, but I feel him step closer to me, the warmth of his chest radiating against my back. If I moved slightly, one step even, his body would be flush against mine, and the shiver down my arms has nothing to do with the night chill. I want him to touch me, but I know he won’t.
 
As though he can read my mind, he whispers, close to my ear, “Not unless you ask.”
 
I close my eyes and say a prayer for strength and virtue, which, sadly, works, because the next thing I hear is his footsteps receding.
 
“Good night, sweet Ashley,” he says to my back, his voice a low rumble.
 
My eyes open slowly to the glittering heavens.
 
“Good night, sweet prince,” I whisper to Julian’s stars.

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed the first Vegas Underground story. The first one was a really good story and this one is just as good.

We have Corey Simonson a card dealer for the Bellimisso. She loves her job and loves interacting with people. When she is asked to deal in a private game and things go very wrong for her.

Stefano is very protective of Corey and is not happy at all when her life is threatened. When he has to keep her close for her safety and because her father is an FBI agent that he is pretty sure is a bad FBI agent.

This is a great story that brings us back to the first set of characters but gives us a new set and a wonderful story. I couldn’t put this book down.

What’s that?” She eyed the bottle with easygoing curiosity.

“Lube. For your butt,” Sharpe replied.

“What’s it do?” She’d never come across anyone using such a thing before.

“You know how your pussy is gushing with liquid every time either one of us touches you?” Sharpe flicked his gaze down to her twitching hole. “It’s doing it now.”

“I know. What about it?”

“Even if you’re the most turned-on in the universe, your ass can’t make itself wet. It needs a little help, or my fingers will hurt you.”

“Neat.” Alora didn’t know what else to say. Getting hurt kinda sounded sexy right now, so it was a good thing the guys were in charge because if she was running things, she’d probably tear herself an actual new one from making the guys just stuff their cocks into her holes already.

She felt a sudden drizzle of cold liquid on her ass. The sensitive nerves in her ring of muscle seemed to make her tense from the unfamiliar coolness. A moment later, Sharpe’s finger pressed firmly against her hole.

It felt weird. Mostly, the only thing she noticed was the pressure. As her ass capitulated against the invasion, however, it began to stretch… and stretch… it was nothing like when Brynn’s fingers had stretched her pussy. This hole seemed so reluctant to let anything in, and just as she thought she was stretched enough, there was more resistance inside from her second sphincter. Alora wished she knew less about biology, as the process was repeated, but as Sharpe’s finger completely breached her back passage, the stretching sensation turned into a warm feeling, that was the touch-equivalent of hot chocolate. Taking a bath in warm caramel couldn’t feel more decadent than the sensation of Sharpe’s finger sliding deep into her ass and touching her from inside her own body.

The thousands of tiny nerve endings in such a small area all came alive, tingling with the delicious stimulation as Sharpe expertly and carefully made this experience mind-blowingly hot. When his hand touched her ass, she knew he was all the way in.

“How does that feel?” he asked.

“Soooo good,” she enthused. Was it the endorphins or something else? She wasn’t sure, but she almost felt drunk.

When Brynn moved his fingers in her pussy, swirling his other hand over her clit, she squeaked.

“I can feel… like you’re both pressing on the same place!” she exclaimed in amazement.

“Yep. It’s a thin separation between the two. That’s why we need to do this very carefully, to be sure you don’t get hurt,” Sharpe explained.

“So, this is dangerous?” she asked. For some reason, the idea turned her on even more.

“It can be. But don’t worry about that. Trust us; we’ll guide you through safely.” Sharpe’s words were reassuring. Alora did trust them. She trusted all the dragons. And she had no idea why, when they’d hardly known each other for very long at all. She just knew, somehow, Sharpe and Brynn wouldn’t rush things, they’d go at a pace her body could handle and they would check to be sure she could take whatever they gave her. They weren’t going to break her and throw her away, like some people might. She finally understood what they meant about nurturing her and being her daddies.

They can make me come when they breathe.

I used to be the galaxy’s first daughter—its princess. In a devastating attack on my homeworld, I am taken by the enemy, evaluated like common cattle, and prepared to be sold. Then four dragons burst in and burn the place down. They save me. But it isn’t safe for me to return to Nidia, so they take me to their planet, Telia II, instead.

Brynn, Argon, Sharpe and Canavan are outcasts; the other alien races fear their great power. They protect me, treasure me, test my limits and chastise me when I disobey their strict rules. But what future can we have, when I must return to my duties and piece together my shattered planet, while they will never be accepted by anyone?

This is a standalone reverse harem not a love triangle. It features dragon shifters doing dragony things, including setting things on fire, BDSM and spanking. It’s set in the same universe as the Twenty-Fourth Century Daddies series, but this is a separate storyline featuring a completely new species.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Flame Daddies is a new series by Katie Douglas that takes you into the world of dragons, elves, and humans and how they all interact in this story.

Dragons are hunted by elves (new twist) and there are not many left in the galaxy. When Argon, Sharpe, Canavan, and Brynn find a woman in need they have no idea what they are getting into.

Alora needs help and she finds herself being helped by four dragons. They all find themselves very attracted to each other. So when someone steals Alora from them they will do anything to get her back.

I enjoyed this book. And can’t wait to see where the next installment takes us.

Katie Douglas is a number one and USA Today bestselling British author of romance and erotica. Katie is an incorrigible romantic and her books reflect that. Especially the incorrigible part. In her spare time she likes to run headfirst into impossible projects, especially if those projects involve travel and good food. Her other love is shoe shopping. If you want to find her, look for the nearest natural disaster. She’s probably in the Starbucks closest to it.

She also writes dark romance as Aria Adams.

Reese
I made a mistake that might have ruined someone’s life. I’ve moved to Sydney to avoid the glares and the questions from
the people back home, but there’s one thing I can’t run from—the guilt and pain that follows me relentlessly. All I can do is dull it with alcohol and casual sex. But then my new boss, Mr Dark and Delicious, deserted me, mid kiss, with my skirt hiked up and my shirt discarded on the alley floor. I should hate him―him and the secrets he’s keeping. But I can’t stay away. Because the pain and guilt he’s hiding mirror my own.
Low
All she wanted was one night. That, I could do. I’m the king of casual. Love them and leave them, before they leave me.
With chemistry off the scale, we couldn’t even make it home, both of us too impatient, ripping each other’s clothes off in the alleyway outside the bar.
Then my phone buzzed, and one text message stopped everything. I couldn’t think. Couldn’t breathe. All I could do was run. I’m toxic, but I can’t tell her why. I can’t bear the look of horror I know would cross her face. But I
also don’t know how to keep something so life altering from the woman I’m falling for. Not when I need her just to survive it.

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had to give this book 5 stars due to the different writing style and the different story this author takes you through. At first, I thought yes this is just another bar hopping love story with a man-whore and girl that didn’t know what she wanted. But this book is sooo much more.

Reese is hiding from her past. She made a huge mistake and is running. When she gets a job at a bar and meets her new boss Low it is instant chemistry. But these two decide to be friends. I loved the banter between everyone in this story but these two are just wonderful.

Low is a man-whore and doesn’t hide it. He is bi and will go with whatever is going on that night. But when he meets Reese something inside him just clicks and she is all he wants. But when he gets news that will/could change his life forever he decides that she is better off without him.

This story is NOT your usual love story. I loved that, it was so refreshing to read something new and with characters that took real-life problems and stuck with it. Reese may have run from her past life, but she was not running from her love for Low. And Low knew he would have a life of struggle and new that he needed help. And yes sometimes I did not like his choices BUT he always found his way back to Reese. That is love.

Great read!

She moved forward, coming to a stop as she finally managed to make out the features of the person on the other side. Jake.

Her stomach danced happily as she opened the door. “Hey, sheriff. You sure you’re not following me?”

He pulled off his hat, holding it in front of him. “Molly, what are you doing here?”

“I could ask you the same thing.”

“I saw the light was on and I knew Laken should have been closed up by now. Thought I’d just check that everything was all right.”

She sighed. “You caught me red-handed stealing.” She held out the yellow skirt. “I suppose you better arrest me and haul me away to jail.”

“You want to be arrested?”

“I have a thing for authority figures,” she whispered with a wink, leaning into him. She leaned a bit too far, though and her sprained ankle gave way, sending her toppling into him.

He grabbed hold of her, holding them both steady.

“Whoops! Sorry, Sheriff. Didn’t mean to fall head over heels for you.”

His eyebrows drew closer together. “Molly, have you been drinking?”

“Just a couple.”

“You smell like booze.”

“I do not!” she protested before she remembered the wine she’d spilled on herself. “Oh, I suppose I do.”

“I hope you’re not planning on driving anywhere,” he said sternly.

“Of course not.” She sighed with exasperation. “Sheriff, are you always so serious?”

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I did not know when I started this book that there were 3 previous books to this series. Thank goodness they are all more or less standalone. There are characters from previous books and mentions of those stories but it doesn’t take away from this book.

Molly ends up in Haven to take care of her bucket list. She is determined that when her life ends it will be on her terms. But she never thought she would ever meet someone like Jake. All she wants is to find some fun at the local BDSM club and take some much needed time with friends.

Jake is the local sheriff. He is still trying to get over a tragedy from his past. He has not had anyone in his life for 2 years or so. But when he meets Molly he decides to get involved with the scene again and interduce her into the life.

I really enjoyed this story and the characters. I will be going back to read the other stories to this series.

Laylah Roberts grew up in rural New Zealand. She worked her way through several libraries, devouring romance books. She finally worked up the courage to write her own story and she’s never looked back. She loves dominant, Alpha men who meet their match in her strong heroines. When she’s not writing, she’s busy running after her young daughter and trying to tame her never-ending pile of laundry.

For years, he was a part of my life. I watched him rush to the hospital countless times, his beautiful surgeon hands racing to save lives.

After all this time, I can’t escape the truth.

I want Dr. Lowe.

Lust chokes each moment we’re together. He promises to fulfill my fantasies—every dirty, naughty desire we can dream up.

Only, I can’t have him.

He’s confident. Experienced. Seductive.

And he’s my ex-boyfriend’s father.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my first Nikki Sloane book and I absolutely loved it. I am a sucker for a good older/younger story and then you add the ex-boyfriend father as the new love interests. Oh yea, you have my interest peaked.

I did have a little issue in the middle when Greg has a choice to make. Cassidy acts more like an adult then Greg does. But in the end, he grows up and makes the right decision.

This is a good age gap story that I could not put down. Cassidy and Greg are a great couple when they finally slow down and become a team. Preston has a lot of growing up to do. But most men at that age do unless they are forced to. I enjoyed this book and will be reading more of Nikki’s books in the future.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
Wow. It has been a while since I have read such an enjoyable MC story. Two broken people, but for totally different reasons might find some kind of love between themselves.
 
Trigger is the prez of the bike club. He is emotionally stunted and is very deadly. But his MC is his family and life.
 
Tessa is friends with the vice prez and is hiding out from them. Them being an ex and her mother. When Trigger and she decide to get close but no emotions. Sometimes things don’t always work out.
 
This does end on a cliffhanger. But is a great book

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
So this book starts where Trigger ended. Trigger is on a rampage and Tess has run off to where she never wanted to go back to.
 
Tess is back at her mother’s place which we find out is a brothel kind of place, and Clark is there. Tess hates it there but has no choice right now but to be there. We learn a lot about Tess and her past. It is very emotional and hard to read at some parts.
 
Trigger is back to being himself before Tess. He is also trying to find his father. Everyone in his crew wants Tess back but they also know they need to tread lightly when it comes to bringing her up since they know Trigger is walking a thin line where she is involved.
 
I loved this story and couldn’t put it down. I am excited to see what the next one brings us. The ending is unbelievable. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

BLURB:

Who knew reading sexy alien abduction stories could get a girl into trouble? Or that an e-reader could also be the gateway to another galaxy? I definitely didn’t… but here I am anyway, mated to the Tsenturion High Commander just like the unwilling human heroines in my favorite sci-fi romances.

The Commander demands obedience. He intends to claim me, train me, and turn me into his perfect little pleasure trophy. He doesn’t believe in love. I don’t believe in giving in without a fight. There’s no amount of discipline or ecstasy that could break me to his will… I hope.

Alien Captive is a hot alien abduction romance, starring one feisty human and the Tsenturion Warrior strong enough to potentially master her.

Disclaimer: the authors are not responsible for any actual alien abductions that may result should you purchase this book.

 

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I LOVED this story. Alien Captive takes a simple E-reader story of Dawns to a real-world alien kidnapping. HAHA. What would you do if the story you are reading is an EHarmany questionnaire? Well, that is pretty much what Lee and Golden have brought you.

Dawn and Gavrill do not get along at all at first. These two rub each other wrong in so many ways. But like all things they come to an agreement and a middle ground. It just so happens to happen in the bedroom most of the time.

Gavrill has a lot on his shoulders and Dawn showing up is not something he wants or needs right now. But he soon learns that sometimes a woman is exactly what a man needs.

This is a wonderfully written story with great characters that bring out the best and worse of each other.

About The Authors

Excerpt

“Come,”
Reid said, and she followed him without hesitation. He led her to a narrow bench, definitely not wide enough to seat her whole backside.
“Sit.”  She lowered
herself onto the seat and she had called it right, half her ass hung over the side of the bench. Finn and Jax stayed where they were, watching her. Reid moved behind her and she turned her head to follow him.  It was only then
that she noticed the strange apparatus positioned behind the bench, something similar to a catheter on a pole. A feeling of trepidation rose in her belly.
Her gaze flitted nervously to the three men. She didn’t want to disappoint them and since she had never done anything like this in her life before, she had no idea how not to fail them.
“You’re going to be amazing,” Jax said softly, detecting the shadow that visibly marred her features. She nodded and offered him a weak smile. From behind, Reid pulled on a pair of latex gloves. When he lifted and released the latex against his
skin, she jumped at the sound and a surge of wetness spilled from her. Her nipples popped out. She didn’t mistake the men’s soft husky groans at her body’s demonstration.
“Ready?” Reid asked. She nodded, not daring to turn around. She clenched her thighs and fisted her hands. And yet everything about those initial moments seemed to have
aroused her in a way she didn’t think she could be.
“Relax, little swan,” he said. She tried and couldn’t get her muscles to loosen up at all.
“The coldness you’re going to feel is just a little lube, all right?”
She closed her eyes and jerked when Reid touched her untouched hole. He prodded and poked
and she knew she wasn’t making it any easier for him to go deeper than the tip of his finger.
“Don’t fight me,” Reid said so softly she barely heard his
words, but she clearly heard how she affected him. How gaining access into her tight little hole was turning him on.
Her gaze opened on Finn and Jax and she licked her lip to see their cocks, tearing at the heavy fabric of their jeans. Reid applied generous amounts of gel to her. After a moment he said, “I’m going to insert the nozzle into your ass now,
little swan.” She froze at the first contact of thin plastic edging at her. She wasn’t ready for this. She started to panic. 
“You know why we’re doing this, don’t you, Saylor?” Jax asked. She didn’t answer, she wanted them to tell her again why they were doing this to her. What the end result would be.

 

REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

4 1/2 ⭐️’s

For my first Chloe Kent story. it has blown me away, to be honest. I have struggled all day to do a 4 or 5 star so I settled with the half star. The reason for that is I felt right from the start that Saylor and the three men had huge chemistry. Saylor is younger than them and is inexperienced, but she seems to be the only one with balls. She wanted them and once she was old enough she went after them. The THREE GROWN MEN didn’t. I guess that is what bothered me. They had their own money, were grown-ups, and didn’t need her father for any of that anymore. Respect is one thing, but if they really wanted her for more than a one-night thing then they should have man upped and did something about it.

Other than that I enjoyed this story. The sex was freaking HOT, the storyline good, and I loved Saylor. This says book 1 so I am interested to see where she takes this series.

Author Bio
Chloe Kent has been hooked on romance since her teens and couldn’t wait to grow up and write her own romance novels. Her books usually feature a spirited heroine, and at least two… sometimes more incredibly hot heroes.
Her favorites pastimes include her husband, her dog, and books. Her biggest fear is running out of coffee or her imagination.

DISHONORED

by Bethany-Kris

Publication Date: August 6, 2018

Genres: Adult, Organized Crime, Mafia, Romantic Suspense

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

Sex is his weapon.

Power is her drug.

Caesar Accardo is gasoline. Mostly harmless while stable, but Aria holds the match to set the dishonored Cosa Nostra prince on fire in more ways than one. And if he burns down everything in his path because of it—so be it.

The problem is … she just wasn’t prepared for all of him.

Aria De Rose is a hurricane. Amazing from afar, but destructive up close. Caesar keeps getting pulled into the Camorra queen’s plans in her effort to gain power, but he’s a better player than she knows.

The thing is … women like her are the reason why rules are meant to be broken.

Philadelphia isn’t ready for game these two are playing—the sacrifices they make might not be worth it in the end, and someone will always lose in a war.

They’re broken, so very vicious, and they are not the good guys. But for every villain in the world, there’s a monster at his back who made him that way.

And monsters like those hide in plain sight.

Note: This is a standalone romance with content that some might find triggering. Be warned, and read with caution.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Holy crap batman. This book blew me away. I freaking loved this story about Caesar and Aria. Just when you think you have a handle on what is going on, BAMB you are thrown another twist.

Caesar and Aria are both screwed up in their own right. But when they come together they find a peace within each other that they never expected. Both use sex as a weapon and neither is used to it from the other. There is something really deep about watching these two try to out whit each other and fall in love at the same time.

I have to say that this story is not what I expected at all. It was so much more. More emotions, more impact, more everything. I loved it.

He’d told me time and time again the club was my “family”.
My “family” let a lot of things happen to me that shouldn’t of.
My “family” did a great job of turning a blind eye.
My “family” was great at letting me be the punching bag for their

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So there are a couple different reasons I went to 5 stars instead of 4. First I want to say this is the first Elizabeth book I have read so I had nothing to go by before reading Scarred. And at some points I was almost ready to stop reading, then some I was crying, and at the end, I knew I had to give this book 5 stars. Not only due to the story but because of the emotional elements also.

At first, I want to say I was not too into Roxy. I mean yes I understand where she is coming from and where she is at. There is no one to help her, and nowhere where she can really go. When the MC club is so big that everywhere you would turn there would be someone to turn you back to the abusive man you just ran from.

Then you have Tex, the man that has supposedly been in love with Roxy for years. He has been watching her get beat the crap out of for years and has done nothing because Rage is his best friend. That bothered me. So when he finally has the guts to leave with her it doesn’t take long for these two to come out with their emotions and fears.We are eventually taken to Montana where Roxy has brothers in an up and up MC club. This is where we meet some wonderful new characters and Roxy comes out of her shell. She and Tex become part of a new MC club and now have to learn their own relationship.A lot of things happen in this book.

Again it is a lot of roller coasters and emotional upheaval but I really did enjoy it. That is what makes a good story in my thoughts. I am breathless to see what happens in the next book. I am sure it will be a hate/love relationship kind of like this one.

Series: The Fraternity Brothers by Emerson Rose Includes: Hot and Dangerous 📕Reviewed📕

 

 

He needs a roommate, she needs a place to live.

Correction.

She needs a place to hide …

When charming firefighter Hunter meets a beautiful woman at the DMV, he wastes no time making her acquaintance. When she mentions she’s new in town and looking for a fresh start, he does not hesitate in offering to rent the extra bedroom in his house. After all, he’s never been able to resist a damsel-in-distress and helping those in need is what he does best.

What begins as an innocent, well intentioned arrangement, blossoms into a passionate entanglement neither one of them saw coming.

It all feels right. His tight-knit group of friends think the world of her. And he can’t imagine going the rest of his life without Edie by his side.

But when her past comes to call and their love is on the line, Hunter’s save-the-world complex faces the ultimate test. Is love enough to save them both?


**Hot and Dangerous Book One in The Fraternity Brothers Series, is the first of seven stories. The series is about a group of fraternity brothers who continue to be best friends long after graduation, and the women they fall in love with. Each book is a full length stand-alone romance with a happily ever after and no cliffhanger**

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have to say this book surprised me. I was a little apprehensive about this book, but I wanted to give it a try and I am so happy I did.

I loved this group of friends and Hunter. He is looking for a roommate since he has been cut off from his family because he is following his dreams. He is destined to become a firefighter and will do anything to do it. So when he meets Edie at the DMV he finds himself offering his home to her as a roommate.

Edie is hiding, and when she finds herself talking to Hunter she takes his offer and help. She is not looking for anything romantic, in fact, she wants NOTHING to do with romance. She wants a new life and maybe some friends.

Hunter finds he really enjoys Edie and her company. His friends like and respect her and it shows. But when her past comes back to hunt her will everyone stick by her? Or will they turn their back on her?

I went down to a 4 star due to how quick the ending ended. It was like bam. However, I did enjoy the story and will read the others.

Hunter

“Hunter, you’re fired.”
I look up from my bunk that I’ve just made with military precision after my last twenty-four-hour shift for the week. “Uh, sir?”
Chief Sullivan stands tall and irritated on the threshold of the room with his hands behind his back. “You have failed to show proof of a Class A license, so I have to fire you. I’ve been telling you for weeks to get this done by today. Time’s up.”
Shit. I was planning on taking care of that three days ago, but I was busy hiding the fact that I’m going to the academy to become a full-time firefighter from my family. “I was going to take care of that today, sir.”
His brows shoot up, and his expression is doubtful. “You have until five o’clock tonight. Have fun at the DMV on a Saturday, son. I don’t envy you.”
I don’t envy me either. “Thank you, sir. I’ll make sure you have it before five.”
“You do that, or you really will be fired.”
I’m a volunteer firefighter. Technically, he can’t fire me, but hopefully, that will soon change—being a full-time firefighter, not being fired.
He turns to leave and pauses on his way out. “Everything all right with your family?” he asks.
No, everything is not all right with my family. They’re pissed they spent thousands of dollars sending me to Westview University for four years only to watch me throw it all away to play hero, as they say. Chief knows my family is less than thrilled about my career choice, and he’s always been supportive.
“They still feel the same way. Nothing’s going to make them budge, though. I’m not going to worry about it.”
He grunts in agreement and leaves me alone. There’s not much else to say.
I hadn’t planned on spending the day at the DMV. I was going to take a run on the beach, work out, and place an ad for a roommate. Dad refuses to help with the rent now that I’m not going on to law school as planned.
As he planned, not me. I never wanted to go to college in the first place. I’ve wanted to be a firefighter since I was ten years old when I rescued a kitten from a burning garage five houses down from ours on Grand Avenue.
I saw smoke coming from the Grady’s garage and heard Cleo’s meows. Like an idiot, I went inside and crawled around on my hands and knees to find her. Mrs. Grady was a nice lady, and I knew how much she loved that cat. I couldn’t let it die.
When I emerged from the garage, Cleo under my arm coughing and sputtering, gasping for air, I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Even after spending the night in the hospital for smoke inhalation, I wouldn’t shut up about being a firefighter.
My dad finally put his foot down a year later and told me under no circumstances was a Forrest man going to work a blue-collar job. I didn’t know what that meant other than I wasn’t allowed to talk about being a fireman anymore. Dad said I was going to be a lawyer like the rest of the family. Being a lawyer looked boring dressing in a suit, carrying a briefcase, working behind a desk on the computer, and spending time in stuffy old courthouses. No, that isn’t what I wanted to do—never was, never will be.
I step outside into the sunlight and shield my eyes. Another perfect day in California. Too bad I have to spend it inside waiting for a special license that says I can keep driving the huge rigs I’ve been driving for almost four years already. What a waste of time.

 

I love summer, the smell of clean babies, lilacs and swimming. I’m a Midwestern mother of five, Mimi of two and owner of three fur babies.

I spend my weekdays writing full time and raising my family.

I write about intelligent women and the stubborn men who love them.
I write about turmoil and conflict. I write about the most complex, convoluted emotion we as humans experience.

I write about love.

Even as a kid, I knew the kind of hell the world could dish out. I grew to expect the worst and learned to face it head on.

Her beauty and innocence captivated me, and just being near her made the shadows of my past seem less daunting. Without even realizing it, I let her in, but as we grew closer, I quickly realized that her walls were even more guarded than my own. 
 
Like me, Alex had a past filled with secrets. Could our broken souls find a way to mend together, or would we remain imprisoned by our past?
REVIEW
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shadow and Alex with their love affair will take your breath away. Shadow has a history that will make you tear up and Alex has a painful past that is misunderstood. When these two get together they might be able the heal each other.

What becomes a friendship between Shadow and Alex becomes a love and sacrifice between the two. They have to find a way to survive her past that is coming back to get her. And Shadows MC crew that is just trying to help.

I enjoyed the chemistry and story that these two shares with us.

I heard the loud rumble of several motorcycles approaching, and as they got closer, I noticed something familiar about one of the men. Even in the pitch black of night, I knew it was him—the hot biker from the bookstore. I stood frozen in place as he and his friend whipped past me.
A black SUV pulled in right behind them and they all parked near the front door of Newman’s. I watched in awe as he got off his motorcycle and removed his helmet. He turned to look in my direction, and as those penetrating blue eyes locked on mine, all my sense of reason seemed to just wash away. I couldn’t move. My pulse was racing, my palms were sweating, and my hormones were raging. He looked so damn good with his dark hair tousled, and it was impossible not to notice how his jeans clung to him in all the right places. I was a complete mess. No man had ever had such an effect on me. I didn’t like it. I wanted to get into my car and shake it off, but when I realized that he was leaving his two friends to walk in my direction, my mind and body just wouldn’t cooperate. I simply stood there like a total idiot.
After he finally made his way over to me, I was surprised by his furrowed brow and intense expression. He just stood there staring at me for several seconds, and having no idea what else to do, I mumbled, “It’s you.”
“Yeah. It’s me.”
“I’m sorry … I don’t actually know your name.”
“It’s Shadow.” Before I could respond, he took a quick glance around the parking lot and asked, “You out here alone?”
“Yeah … I was just about to head home.”
“You shouldn’t be out here by yourself. It’s not safe,” he growled.
Surprised by his fierce tone, I became even more nervous and started to ramble. “I’m okay. My friends are inside. We were watching the band. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of them … the Smoking Guns. They’re pretty good. Not exactly my thing. A little loud for my taste. Not the loudest one I’ve ever been to, but close. At least I had an excuse to leave early … I have a shipment coming in tomorrow morning, so I need to be at the store early. What about you? Are you here to see the band, too?”
“Not exactly.” Without giving further explanation, he asked, “Where’s your car?”
“Um … it’s right over there,” I answered as I pointed in its direction.
He leaned to the side as he looked around me and grimaced, clearly not impressed by the state of my vehicle. “That’s your car?”
“Yeah. I know it’s not much, but it gets me to where I’m going.”
Just when I thought the moment couldn’t get any more uncomfortable, Jason stepped out of the bar, and as he glared at the burly biker standing next to me, he shouted, “Hey, Alex? You okay?”
“Yeah. I’m good. I was just about to leave.” When he didn’t move, I said, “You’re going to miss the closer if you don’t go back inside.”
“You’re sure you’re okay?”
“Yes, Jason. I’m fine.”
“Okay. Don’t forget to text me when you get home.”
“I will. Don’t worry.”
Once he was gone, I turned my attention back to my biker. He studied me for a moment, his eyes lingering on my mouth for only a fleeting moment; then, without saying a word, he started walking towards my car. Having no idea what he was doing, I just stood there trying to wrap my head around exactly what was happening. He turned around and looked over at me then said, “I thought you were leaving.”
“I am.” He cocked his eyebrow as he motioned his hand towards the driver’s side door. Feeling like a complete idiot, I rushed over to him and quickly unlocked my door.
He watched me get inside and asked, “You okay to drive?”
“Yes, I’m fine.” He again stared at me for a moment like he was trying to decide if I really was okay. “Seriously. I had one beer two hours ago. I’m fine.”
“Good.”
I expected him to step back, but he just stood there looking down at me. I felt warm all over, my heart was pounding so loudly that I was certain he could hear it. I felt my face turning red, and not wanting him to see my body’s reaction to him, I said, “Your motorcycle is really something. I bet it’s awesome to ride on a night like this.”
“It is.”
“Okay, well … I guess I better get going.” With a bit of hesitation, I put my hand on the door handle and as I started to close it, I said, “Thanks for walking me to my car.”
His expression softened as he moved out of the way and said, “Be careful.”
“I will. Thanks.”
After I closed the door, I gave him a smile and a quick wave goodbye, then started my engine. As I pulled out of the parking lot, I glanced up at my rearview mirror, and a chill ran down my spine when I noticed he was still standing in the same spot, watching intently as I drove out onto the main road.

 

“Damn,” I muttered to myself.
