F*CK CLUB: CON – A Shiloh Walker Review

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

I needed so much more from this story than I got. Con and Shawntelle had this insane ability to be this great will they/won’t they story. Unfortunately this felt like this fell a little flat and the characters rushed through to the romance.

When the story begins, Shawntelle is pursuing Con through flirtations and obvious glances. Although Con knows the dangers of her learning his history, he can’t help but wonder what it’d be like to be with her. I really hoped that this would drag out with a lot of anticipation and a huge climax (hah pun intended).

As for typical Walker books, there is an element of mystery: Shawntelle’s true desires and why she’s really pursuing Con is a large portion of the story. I’m not going to give away the main twist…but I will say that it came too soon for me. Generally Walker is really good at dragging out what’s TRULY going on to give you a big surprise but this time there was just something lacking.

I wanted to love this story more….that being said. I still love this series. And the second book left me eagerly awaiting Shame and Charli’s story!! OMG that one is going to be so good!


Fck Club Con Cover.jpg 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.

AVENGED – A Jay Crownover Review

 

One novel and four novellas promise to take readers back into New York Times bestselling author Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie Family with hot and steamy stories readers are sure to lose themselves in. Delve into the world you all know and love, and grab your copies today!

 

 

A Letter from Liliana Hart:

Dear Readers,

I’m thrilled to announce the MacKenzie Family World is returning! I asked four of my favorite authors to create their own characters and put them into the world you all know and love. These amazing authors revisited Surrender, Montana, and through their imagination you’ll get to meet new characters, while reuniting with some of your favorites.

These stories are hot, hot, hot and packed with action and adventure—exactly what you’d expect from a MacKenzie story. It was pure pleasure for me to read each and every one of them and see my world through someone else’s eyes. They definitely did the series justice, and I hope you discover four new authors to put on your auto-buy list.

Make sure you check out Spies and Stilettos, a brand new, full-length MacKenzie novel written by me. This will be the final installment of the MacKenzie series, featuring Brady Scott and Elena Nayal. After eighteen books of my own and nine books written by other bestselling authors in the MacKenzie World, it’s going to be difficult to say goodbye to a family I know as well as my own. Thank you for falling in love with the MacKenzies.

So grab a glass of wine, pour a bubble bath, and prepare to Surrender.

Love Always,

Liliana Hart

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

Oooh when The Point meets the Saints of Denver things GET GOOD! Ben and Echo have walked on the wrong side of the tracks in their towns for longer than they can remember. But when Echo’s mission to find the man her sister left behind leads her straight into the arms of dangerous Ben… Talk about a bad boy.

I loved Ben’s character and would’ve loved to see even more about him. Crownover is exceptional at writing believable bad characters that you want to fight for. Ben has an odd sense of right and wrong that still works out for him to live a lifestyle that would frighten most. Echo shows up in the most dramatic way! Being alone in the woods with a man who can’t be 100% honest with his past can get dicey. But don’t let the bad boy persona fool you. Ben’s 100% sexy and his reaction to Echo leaves nothing to be desired…or everything technically.

Echo..I wanted SO much more about her. If you haven’t read books 1 from the SoD and Point series you wouldn’t know where she (and Ben) come from but you wouldn’t be lost. There’s still a history told and a story that could be its own book. And that’s something that was lacking really in this novella…I wish it had been a full fledged story on its own. Echo and Ben have an undeniable bond, yes, but they seems to move so quickly in a way that just leaves something out.

Definitely interesting to see two series come together in another world!

BEAUTIFUL MESS – A Kasey Lane Release Boost & Giveaway

CHECK OUT MY REVIEW HERE!

When attorney Jami Dillon strides into the conference room to meet her new client, she’s stopped in her tracks by an all-too familiar figure. Jackson Paige. He’s her tall, tattooed, and sexy as hell hook up from law school-who also broke her heart. 

Hell’s bells.
Jackson Paige was, in fact, Jax Pain, the drummer of Manix Curse.
That thing in Jami’s chest tightened, making it hard to breathe.

Jackson Paige, aka Jax Pain, has worked hard to put that unfor-frickin-gettable fling behind him and the nasty secret that made him leave her. Truth is, life as the playboy drummer of Portland’s hottest metal band hasn’t helped him to forget the fiery, sexy woman who stole his heart. Lucky for him, Jami was just hired as his band’s new attorney. But when he sees the look on her face when she realizes who her new client is, Jax wonders if maybe being this close to her again isn’t such a great idea. The explosive chemistry is there, but so are the dark secrets…

THE CAD & THE CO-ED: A L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid Review & Giveaway

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

I LOVE a good romantic comedy and this one did not disappoint. Though this was my first, I had no issue jumping in at book 3 for this series. The characters have a great background and I loved these two!

Bryan is your typical party boy with a troubled past but somehow he’s portrayed in a way that doesn’t make him pathetic or annoying. He was a total Cad….the ultimate definition. But this story line that he has with Eilish is the perfection road to redemption. I liked that we got to see so much from his point of view and his thought process for handling stress and love. Eilish is such a badass mom. Seriously, I love her. I don’t have too many mom characters where the fixation isn’t the kid but Eilish’s story is a perfect blend.

This is a story of how a man with a troubled past can overcome on his own and win back the woman made to stand by his side. These two are honestly so heartfelt and real that it made me cry such happy tears! I’m so glad I got a chance to read this romance. Also, anytime a female charter is S-A-S-S-Y I am a happy woman! Definitely going to get the first few books!


The Cad and The Co-Ed, a quirky and sexy romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is available now!!

thecadandco-edcover

THE CAD

Bryan Leech is a cad.

Or, he *was* a cad.

No one is quite certain.

Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.

The only problem is, no one believes him.

THE CO-ED

Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed to put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.

The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.

THE PLAN

Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.

Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.

But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?

HOW TO TAME A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS – A Kerrelyn Sparks Review

IMG_0795.JPG

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

Okay it has been a bit since I ventured into the fantasy world…and Sparks new series of The Embraced does not disappoint! I’ve always loved her vampire series and was super excited to get the chance to read this early!

I love, love, love learning a whole new world. Lands and odd names but with a  feel of ancient medieval times. Magic and mysterious religions that cast eerie foreshadows on futures. Loved it all! Luciana was such a cute character! I love the interaction between her and her sisters. I’m hoping that they each get their own story so we can see how each of The Embraced differ and  from each land.

I was a little let down that Leo had this bad boy reputation as The Beast but he kind of felt no more than a puppy to me. In battle and defense he was badass but with Luciana and his men he felt more boyishly charming (which may have been the point that I could’ve missed) but I was hoping for more of a “taming”. That being said I do think that there was a great sense of humor to this book. Leo’s reactions to some things were downright gut-busting. Excited for more of this series!!


29875893.jpg Luciana grew up on the Isle of Moon, hidden away because of her magical powers. But when her father arrives, he offers her a choice: remain on the island or return with him and marry the Beast of Benwick in order to save their legacy—and her father’s life.

Lord Leofric, the Beast of Benwick, has not been touched since he was a child. Born with the power to harness lightning, he is a danger to everyone he touches. When he meets his betrothed, he expects a loveless, lonely marriage…until he discovers she’s vastly more powerful than he realized. But is she strong enough to withstand his touch?

If they can survive, their love will alter the future of the kingdom. But will their extraordinary powers cost them everything?

BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN – A Maya Banks Review

IMG_0807.JPG

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

Oh the Kelly boys….there’s nothing better than action packed military men who believe in love and family above all else. Joe has held out the longest (if you don’t count Rusty..and I DO!). He’s always been so adamant against find gin the fairytale ending all his siblings have seemed to find. Each previous story for the Kelly world has had its true level of intrigue and danger. But Joe…oh Joe got a bit of a different type.

Brighter Than The Sun had a much more down-home country feel than the other novels. There was mystery in the begging as we met Rusty’s friend, Zoe. She’s assuming a new identity after running from a dangerous past that’s turned against her. I was hoping that this would allow for a bit more danger throughout our story but it just wasn’t there. What was there was seeing Joe’s vulnerable side as his gut tells him to go after Zoe in there right way. Become her friend and show her that there ARE people in the world that you can trust and that are willing to protect you at all costs.

That being said the ending on this story had the typical KGI action and danger that any Banks fan is used to. I loved it! Despite the lack of action throughout Joe’s story we got to see a bit of a different type of Kelly. Not that our other operatives aren’t caring or kind…I mean they do rescue hostages for living. I liked that we got to see a Kelly, and especially Joe, more int heir home setting and the time in between missions.

Along with everyone else I am ANXIOUSLY awaiting Rusty and Sean’s story. The teasers in this one were soooo good!


 20453985.jpgSearing action and passion ignite the latest KGI novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Darkest Before Dawn.

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.
Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.
Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering.
Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t…

As the last unattached member of the Kelly clan, Joe is more than ready to risk life and limb on any mission he’s assigned to, but when it comes to love, he’ll keep his distance. He’s content to watch his brothers become thoroughly domesticated.

Zoe’s had nothing but heartbreak in her life, and she’s determined to start over with a completely new identity, thanks to her college friend, Rusty Kelly. But it’s the gorgeous smile and tender words of Joe Kelly that begin to weaken her resolve to never risk her heart again. And Joe will have to put everything on the line to save Zoe, when secrets of her past resurface—and threaten to tear them apart…

BEAUTIFUL MESS – A Kasey Lane Review & Giveaway

IMG_0836.JPG

**ARC received from the author for an honest review**
Welcome to the world of crazy rock and roll where ink meets paper! I was so excited to read Jax’s story. I was a little skeptic as book 1 felt a little immature for me but I still loved it. But Jax and Jami….oh these two are HOT!
I knew Jax had something up his sleeve going on during book 1. I had no idea that little Jami and him would’ve had some insane past that could’ve been so much more! This story was filled with so much delicious drama and hopefulness! This is a second chance romance for the books. Jax really is a good man at heart, despite being a rocker, and I wanted Jami to so badly see that he could be it. He WAS it. I was so nervous for the mega twist though. I won’t spoil it but oh my I was so worried! Some things aren’t easily forgivable. but Jax is perfectly capable of winning Jami over.
I love that Lane’s characters always butt heads! It makes for such good entertainment. And ugh the whole will they /won’t they scenario is perfect here! Definitely can’t wait for book 3: Beautiful Wreck for Bowen! THAT is going to be the king of comeback stories!

I’m shattered. I’m stunned. I was not ready for all that was The Deep End. My body, my mind, my heart, and my soul were not ready. This is not for the faint of heart or the close minded. But in true Kristen Ashley fashion she does this story justice.

Alpha-subs are abundant in The Bee’s Honey club and Dommes run the game. Amélie is at the top and seems to be Queen Bee, but her years have unfortunately turned to dull scenery. Until Olivier catches her eye and lights the fuse she almost thought had run out.

I absolutely love Kristen Ashley and every story she puts out. This was such a new avenue and risk for her to take and I am absolutely in lust. Olly and Amélie have this one-in-a-million connection that just oozes off the page and drips form every word. There is always a risk that a story based in a risqué world could put readers off. I happen to think that KA did the theme perfectly. Olly has the innate ability to show every little emotion in his tics and facial and physical gestures. Amélie is such a wonderfully elegant woman who’s own power is so sexy in a confident way. Its chic meets beast in this delectable tale.

As with all KA stories there’s always a baser story, a deep meaning, behind the sex and the action. I think that KA fought hard to show that owning yourself, your wants and needs, is worth fighting for. That life can try to show you that being extraordinary is wrong and that you could be alone. But in reality, you can find your HEA no matter how out-there your HEA may be.

Every once in a while a character jumps off the page in straight into my heart. The glimpse we see for The Farthest Edge tells me that Branch is soon to be by next love affair! If you’re brave enough….dive into The Deep End now!

THE DEEP END - Tour teaser 2

 

EXCERPT:

As he slowly closed the door behind him and moved his eyes to look through the room, taking it in, she watched them get wide.

They dropped to her and his amusement was clear. Not only radiating from his gaze but twitching his lips.

Another unusual—and unacceptable—reaction.

He thought this was funny.

She hoped like fuck she had the opportunity to prove him wrong.

She crossed her arms on her chest and slightly put out a foot, like she was about to start tapping her toe. In the wrap dress she wore, she knew this opened the overlap, not exposing anything, but the promise for him was impossible to resist.

His attention dropped to her legs.

“In the playrooms,” she began with a snap, and his gaze cut to hers, “I want eye contact. Unless otherwise instructed, you should not only feel free to look me directly in the eyes, if I’m in your line of sight or I’m not giving you something that your body’s natural reaction would make it difficult to meet my gaze, I require it.”

She stood there staring as he did nothing but dip his chin in acknowledgment.

Cheeky.

Exceptionally cheeky.

Fabulous.

“Unless I’ve asked for their silence or for them to ask for leave to speak, I also require my toys to respond when they’re spoken to. Even if it’s only a ‘yes, Mistress,’ or ‘no, Mistress.’”

His stance relaxed, like he was settling in at the beginning of a show he found vaguely intriguing, and his deep rumble of a voice bounced like boulders through the room. “Yes, Mistress.”

Christ, even his voice declared his challenge.

“Excellent,” she allowed. “Your name?”

“Olivier,” he answered.

French.

Also unusual, at least in this country. And interesting.

She liked it a great deal.

She studied him.

He let her, holding her eyes.

“I’m Mistress Amélie,” she eventually informed him.

“I know. You got a lotta fans out there…Mistress.”

The hesitation over him saying “Mistress” gave less of the impression he was testing her and more of the strange impression the word was unpracticed when, with any experienced sub, it would slip right off their tongue.

She made no comment to that.

“There are things we should go over,” she remarked.

“Right,” he stated, his big body adjusting again, now like he was settling in further, intent on giving her the same attention he would a flight attendant who gave the safety address.

That being no more than a courtesy.

She fought the shiver his actions created but allowed the irritation.

“Your safe word is kitten,” she stated.

“Yes, Mistress.”

“You’re open to any kind of play,” she went on.

“Yes, Mistress.”

“It’s important and now’s the time to share should there be anything you wish me to shy away from, Olivier. Especially as this is the first time I’ve played with you.”

Something in his eyes flashed. Blue eyes that were the color of nothing and everything. Not sky. Not sea. Not midnight. A pure blue that only existed in the unchartable depths of a rainbow.

She felt that flash snake up between her thighs, taking residence in her womb.

He wanted this conversation done so she would play with him. He wanted the preliminaries over so they’d get to the good stuff.

He wanted her.

She stared into those blue eyes and for a moment felt mesmerized.

For God’s sake, Leigh, she berated herself in an effort to pull it together. Rainbow?

“Olivier,” she prompted.

“I’m open to anything,” he confirmed.

 

 


Kristin Ashley - headshotAbout Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
