WHAT I NEED – A J. Daniels Review

img_0814

**ARC received from the author for an honest review**

Have you read the Bama Boys? How have you not! They’re hot, they’re alphas, and they love their women. CJ Tully has no shortage of that and he turns the heat up in Daniels’ latest “What I Need”.

Riley is in this horrible relationship with a man who essentially verbally abuses her and puts her down. In a moment of loneliness and thinking that they’ve broken up, Riley finally meets the infamous CJ Tully of the Bama Boys. He’s buff, he’s disturbingly sexy, and that southern drawl calling her darlin’ is all it takes to have her falling ass over tea kettle for him in a night that is UNFORGETTABLE *wink wink*.

Now the twist in our story comes early and oh so deliciously….Riley and her *cough* jerk *cough* man weren’t really on a break (Hello ROSS! lol). So what’s a girl to do but run back to what she knows. But when he takes things too far and almost kills CJ when he tries to rescue Riley….she finally sees the light. But now she’s wormed her way into a tough Tully situation. He’s laid up with a hurt leg and needs a nurse to help him at home (Sneaky CJ!).

Now I won’t give any more away but the ride that CJ takes miss Riley on is FILLED with adorable moments such as CJ saying just the right things and Riley being sweet and cute. But its also filled with some of the hottest scenes EVER. CJ may be a jokester in person and all business when he’s a cop but when CJ and Riley get passionate…THE. SPARKS. FLY. Add this to your collection immediately!!

HARD TO HANDLE – A Christine Warren

IMG_0297.JPG

**ARC received from the author for an honest review**

When The Darkness’ threat looms closer than ever before how will The Light find a new way to stop them? For the first time in Guardian history, Ash has awoken as the first of her kind, a female Guardian in the midst of a war between good and evil. Michael Drummond has always been around gifted women, sisters with innate abilities who tend to save the day. But when his sister’s premonitions lead him to Ash’s claws…he’s got to open up to a whole new world he never new existed.

The past books in the series has featured all sassy female Wardens and male Guardians whose attitudes reflect their stony nature. This book was so refreshing that Warren decided to go with a female Guardian! Drum was his own style..not quite sassy but sarcastic and stubborn. The banter between the stone faced Ash and Drum was so entertaining to read.  I loved Warren’s take on Drum’s female family members and their “abilities”. They were just enough of old Irish tales that it held a sense of superstition behind them.

We got to see a glimpse into each of the previous Guardians lives and even Wynn and Kylie joined in he adventure when The Darkness’s operations moved to the eastern world. Warren always writes the perfect amount of action and suspense as to how the Wardens and Guardians can save the day. In theory we’ll have two more novels and two more Guardians to discover!!!


9781250077387.jpg A SEDUCTION STRONGER THAN STONE 

The only male among four sisters, Michael Drummond is no stranger to women’s strength and formidable will. His Dublin pub, the Skin & Bones, is his refuge, a reassuringly masculine retreat. Until a fierce woman warrior from another realm bursts into his life, bringing with her a battle between good and evil…and an explosive dose of desire.

The first and only of her kind, Ash is a lone female gargoyle, a creature destined to protect mankind from Demons determined to unleash their darkest forces. But her arrival on Earth is more confusing than she expected: her bone-deep instinct to do battle is matched only by her untamed attraction to stubborn, stalwart Drum. If they manage to keep the world safe, can they turn the passion crackling between them into a love that will withstand the test of time?

A THOUSAND LETTERS – A Staci Hart Teaser Tuesday

A Thousand Letters, an all-new emotional standalone by Staci Hart is coming soon!

Full Cover.png

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.

But now he’s back.

I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.

Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.

One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey bought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

PUCKED OFF – A Helena Hunting Teaser Tuesday

 

businessman working on laptop  in black suit

Synopsis:
***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

F*CK CLUB: RILEY – A Shiloh Walker Review & Excerpt

**ARC received from the author for an honest review**

Review.png

Welcome to F*ck Club; where the rules are as solid as the men behind them. Riley Steele hasn’t always taken the traditional route when it comes to taking care of his family. But when the woman he’s been in love with since he was young needs his help, he’ll drop everything to save her; that includes the walls he’s built to keep her out of his secret.

I loved Riley’s character. Shiloh Walker’s stories always hold such strong, complex characters whose backgrounds have such darkness that you want them to see the light and find their HEA. Riley is an alpha male with a secret heart of gold. He protects those he considers family; blood related and by choosing. When Brianna needs his help to escape an abusive situatuion in the middle of the night, he’s her knight in black armor. These two have a history that is slowly revealed as Brianna’s trouble looms overhead.

As with most of Walker’s suspenseful romance, this story has an undercurrent of mayhem when Riley’s clients begin to experience some frightening situations. She always has a way to put an unknown assailant within the story. And she always keeps you guessing! The multiple storylines blended so well together: Can Riley protect Brianna, his clients, AND his secret?

Hoping we get more for the other Steele siblings! Until next review…

synopsis

riley72

The first rule of F*ck Club…we don’t talk about it. We just do the job and get paid. 

And Riley Steele did his job very well. 

He’ll be the first to admit that his current life isn’t the one he’d foreseen. It’s not even one he wants, but after his parents died and he was left to care for two siblings and a mountain of debt, he was willing to do almost anything. 

Now, after almost ten years of being paid to pleasure, he’s almost numb to it…and to women. 

That all changes with one phone call. 

Brianna Sharpe, the girl he’d loved as a boy, is leaving an abusive lover and needs someplace to hide. 

Opening his home to Bree is easy. Protecting his heart is a different story. She’d completely shattered it once already. 

But Bree has changed and Riley wants to think there might be a chance. Only…what will she do when she discovers his secrets?

“Is everything okay, Ry?”

The moonlight filtering in through the narrow slit in the curtains painted her skin with a soft, silvery light. Her eyes were darker than he’d ever seen them and he had to curl his hands into fists to keep from reaching for her.

“Everything’s fine, Bree,” he lied.

Even to his own ears, the words sounded hollow.

“Then why aren’t you talking to me? Why don’t you seem to want to look at me anymore?”

She was trying to torture him.

Slowly, he reached out and skimmed the back of his fingers down her cheek, careful to keep the touch light.

“We’re talking now. I’m looking at you now.”

“And you’re ready to haul ass out of here,” she said, looking wounded.

“Because if I don’t—” He snapped his jaw shut before the rest of the words could slip out, but he’d said too much already.

Her eyes widened. “If you don’t, what?”

“Bree.” Her name came out a low rasp. “Go to bed, okay? Go in there with your son and go to sleep.”

“I’ll go to bed when I damn well want.” She poked him in the chest with her finger. “How about you answer me now?”

He caught her wrist.

She tugged, and reflexively, he tugged back harder.

She crashed against his chest and the warm, soft weight of her had him biting back a groan.

She splayed the fingers of her left hand against his chest. He could feel her pulse bounding madly against his thumb. Slowly, he stroked that rapid beat, staring into her eyes.

“Everything’s wrong,” he said without thinking. “I can’t even go into detail about most of it, but the worst thing is that you’re here and I can’t touch you. I need you like I need my next breath. I always have. But you’re just as out of reach now as you’ve been for the past ten years.”

He started to let her go, telling himself he’d lock himself in the bathroom for the next hour, maybe longer. Or maybe he’d just go back downstairs and sleep in the torture device of a chair.

But, although he let go of Bree’s hand, she didn’t let go of him. The hand on his chest curled, fisting in his shirt and she moved closer.

“Who says you can’t touch me? Who says I’m out of reach?”

Her eyes lingered on his mouth and a groan rumbled out of him.

“Don’t,” he said, shaking his head.

“Don’t what?” She leaned in and kissed his chin.

The threads of his control started to snap like tension wires that threatened to cut and slice and wound as they broke.

Back away. Don’t touch, he told himself.

But he didn’t do that. He slid a hand into her hair and twisted the thick, heavy curls around his fingers. “You should go back to bed, Bree,” he said thickly.

“And you should let me decide what I should and shouldn’t do.”

Then she leaned in and kissed him.

Her tongue slid along his lower lip.

She dragged her hands down his chest and caught the front of his shirt, tugging it free of the waistband of his trousers. “I want you naked,” she said against his mouth. “I want your hands on me and I want to be naked.”

“Bree…”

She tipped her head back and met his eyes in the darkened room.

“We…” He shook his head rapidly. “Don’t do this, okay?”

“Why not?”

“Because I…” Air coming in ragged bursts, he tried to think of the most logical explanation. Because once wasn’t enough? Because he didn’t know how to handle this? Because…because…

There was a logical reason and he knew it.

But then Bree kissed him and the thought of logic died in a shuddering explosion.

Wrapping his arms around her, he pulled her up against him.

fck-club-con-cover Rule #2…Respect the ladies.

Conner Steele has nothing but respect for ladies. He absolutely adores them and takes more than a little bit of pride in his job—or rather, his former job.

After a run-in with a cop, former male escort Con, along with his brother Riley and best friend Shame, decided it might just be best to hang up their…hats and retire from the business of being paid to pleasure.

After all, they have a profitable business going with their new pub. No reason to ruin a good thing and Con is more than happy to keep pleasing the ladies—just…no longer as a job. Finding a date or company for the night has never been an issue for him, either. He’s been told more than once that he can charm a tiger out of its stripes. But lately a new hire at the bar is turning the tables on him—she is the one charming him, twisting him up into knots and getting him so worked up, he can barely see straight.

In his rather expert opinion, Shawntelle Callahan is nothing less than a queen.

And she’s a queen on a mission, too. Even as tangled up as he is over her, he can see that. First she tries to coax him out of retirement for one last engagement. When that doesn’t work, she sets out to drive him crazy. After finally admitting that she’s a writer who’s looking to do a story on male escorts, Con realizes it will be best to just stay away from Shawntelle. Sure, she says she’s just looking for some hands-on information but he knows there’s more to it than that. There are secrets in her eyes, barely hidden lies and doubt.

FULL PACKAGE: A Lauren Blakely Review, Excerpt, AND GIVEAWAY!

*ARC received from the author for an honest review*

The Queen of RomComs delivers again! Lauren Blakely never disappoints with her charmingly funny and devilishly sassy characters. FULL PACKAGE delivers just what it intends….the full spread of sexy, funny, and heartwarming reads that any good romance lover needs. Nothings better than the typical trope of “how can something so wrong feel so right”. But when two best friends become roommates and decide to step over the line of friendship…you’re in for one hot read.

The doctor’s in: Chase has been best friends with Josie for years and it make have snuck up on him, but his friendship with Josie is growing into something beyond the friendly bond. When he’s back in town with the worst luck in finding a new home, Josie steps in and realizes he’d be the perfect roommate: they already get along. Josie hasn’t had the best luck with men and Chase has her best interest at heart so he could help her find Mr. Right…right?

Should they cross the line: I loved the fact that this was another book from a male’s perspective. There aren’t too many out there that I’ve enjoyed and Blakely always nails it each time. Chase is so devilishly funny with Josie and it honestly makes me so deliriously happy to see that these two started off as best friends. The ease with which these two coexist is just so sweet (pun intended). Side note: the “recipe chapters” were so DAMN clever! Blakely was able to have recipes Josie would use and somehow twirl in her feelings towards what was to happen to give the reader just the right amount of delicious teasing!

GAH! I’m so happy with how this one turned out! Blakely put in all the right ingredients and one delicious read was created! I can’t WAIT for her next release, THE HOT ONE! Until  next review…

XOXO Nalla

FULL PACKAGE by Lauren Blakely is Here!

A sexy and funny friends-to-lovers standalone romantic comedy, FULL PACKAGE is about a sexy, witty man as he falls head over heels for a woman, who just happens to be his roommate. It takes everything you love about a Lauren Blakely novel –witty dialogue, smoking hot sex scenes, and heartfelt moments –and puts them into one fantastic book! Told in the guy’s POV, with a creative look into Josie’s POV as well, FULL PACKAGE is the laugh-out-loud and insanely hot story of what happens when a sexy ER doc falls madly in love with his gorgeous roommate…and they’re forced to deal with all that simmering desire in a mere six hundred square feet of living space.

“Lauren Blakely has mastered the recipe for delightful and delicious. It’s called Full Package. I can’t find words to tell you how much I enjoyed this friends to lovers romance with enough sweet to melt in your mouth and enough spice to melt your panties.”

I’ve been told I have quite a gift.

Hey, I don’t just mean in my pants. I’ve got a big brain too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing….

Until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard…place.

Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy’s smoking hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.

I can resist Josie. I’m disciplined, I’m focused, and I keep my hands to myself, even in the mere five-hundred square feet we share. Until the one night she insists on sliding under the covers with me. It’ll help her sleep after what happened that day, she says.

Spoiler-neither one of us sleeps.

Did I mention she’s also one of my best friends? That she’s brilliant, beautiful and a total firecracker? Guess that makes her the full package too.

EXCERPT

I point to the curved wooden stand with a hook at the top. “This. Explain this.”

                Josie sets her hands on her hips. “It’s a banana holder.”

                I give her a stern look. “I can read. I don’t need to know what. I need to know why.” I poke the object on the shelf at Bed Bath & Beyond, otherwise known as the Nexus of Unnecessary Things. Pretty sure there’s some kind of vortex or force field right smack dab in the middle of this store attracting all the weird, bizarre, and odd home goods. “Why can’t they sit on the kitchen counter? Or, how about in a bowl?”

                “Maybe the bananas just like to dangle?” she suggests. “Hang free and all?”

                Smacking my forehead, I go along with it. “Aha. That makes perfect sense.”

                “I’m here to help.” She tugs on my shirtsleeve. “But can we please get to the sheet aisle? You can’t sleep on a naked mattress.”

                “That may be true, but I could definitely sleep naked on a mattress,” I offer, and she laughs as we navigate through another sardine-packed aisle in the mammoth store.

                It’s one in the afternoon, and I just moved in this morning. That took all of two hours. Spending my twenties in med school and as a resident gave me very little time for the acquisition of things, so most of my possessions fit in a duffel bag. I have very little. Not even sheets for a queen-size bed. Ergo, I’m spending Saturday at Bed Bath & Beyond, which is a bit like wandering through a Buzzfeed post titled “Ten Things I’ll Never Use.”

                More like five hundred. Wait. Make that five hundred and one, because I just spotted the new number one item on the list.

                “That,” I say as I make a beeline for a shelf of crème brûlée torches. Grabbing a silvery one, I hold it up. “Please say we can have a housewarming party, and you’ll make crème brûlée, and I can stride all proud and awesome into the kitchen,” I say, puffing out my chest and deepening my voice. “And I can light it with a torch, and we’ll all ooh and ahh at the manly fire I made when I lit up a dessert.”

                She arches an eyebrow. “A manly fire?”

                I nod vigorously. “And then you’ll let the guests take turns punching me in the face for being a total douche for owning a crème brûlée torch.”

                She narrows her eyes. “You actually want people to punch you?”

                I’m deadly serious as I answer her. “If I ever own a crème brûlée torch, you have carte blanche to punch me, Josie. You really should.” I drop the torch on the shelf and take her hand, clasping it tightly in mine. “Promise me. From this day forward. Promise you’ll punch me if I ever own a crème brûlée torch, a rotating tie rack, or more than one kind of cheese grater. This is part of our roommate pact.”

                She grips my hand tighter, her green eyes glowing with stark seriousness. “I solemnly swear to pummel you under all the aforementioned circumstances. As proof of our friendship and roommate solidarity.”

                “You’re a saint,” I say, then wrap a hand around her head and tug her close for a quick kiss on her forehead.

                And hello, sweet, sexy scent of Josie. What is this delicious smell? Is it . . . oh fuck me.Cherries.My God, she smells like cherries. Like the perfect summer fruit. Like the naughtiest fruit. And I’ve got to wonder if that cherry scent is her face lotion, her shampoo, or her body wash?

                Body wash.

                My mind is adrift, and the word association begins. Because what goes with body wash but nudity?

                Naked woman in the shower. Washing. Lathering. Soaping.

                Ah, hell.

                Snap the fuck out it, Summers.
