Sloan O’Malley just left her entire world behind—her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she’s free. She can live the “normal” life she’s always wanted. A life without fear. But there’s nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.

Spotlight & $25 GC Giveaway: Careless Whispers series by Lisa Renee Jones

TODAY'S SPOTLIGHT

naughty mom reviewella1111122222

FIVE STARS for the Careless Whispers series. Talk about suspenseful, intriguing and TOTALLY captivating!!

Like Ella, I can’t make out who to trust. There are so many players on this mysterious game of chess and without a memory it’s that much harder.

Though she has Kayden by her side and his power and sexy body is there to protect her and help her seek the truth, he’s just as a mystery to Ella as the reason for her amnesia and why she’s in Italy. She wants to much to trust him and for the most part she does, but there are still holes in every bit of truth she discovers.

From the start of each book, I’m on pins and needles until I reach the end and then I’m left hanging on the edge of my seat, excited and anxious for more.

I can’t help but be engrossed in this series and soak it all up as fast as I can. With so many characters and facets to the story along with Lisa Renee Jones’ storytelling skills, I couldn’t help but feel like I’m watching my oven private movie inside my head.

divider line naughty mom review★★★★

Twisted, Deranged, Depraved!

I loved the first two book in this series. War and Baylee will always hold a piece of my heart. Though I don’t think this release was necessary, I will say it was an amazing read. Gabe was a twisted individual and it was evident after everything he put Baylee through and his demented mind in the two previous books. To find out he finds his HEA in a female that was even more demented and twisted than he was absolutely shocked me.

There was rarely a moment I didn’t cringe. Hannah and Gabe were true soulmates and it was extremely entertaining to find Gabe at a loss at how to keep Hannah under control. How can he keep her sane (even for short periods) or how can he tame her? She’s a WILDCARD for sure and gives him a run for his money from the moment they meet!!

divider line excerpt reveal gif blue
          Five minutes later, the valet pulls up with my car. Genevieve raises an eyebrow. “A Bugatti?”
          I’m so impressed she can name the model that I practically jizz in my pants.     “It’s the best.”
          She shakes her head, and I swear I hear her mutter something about rich men and their toys, but I don’t respond, too occupied with inspecting my car and then passing the attendant the cash I promised him earlier for returning my vehicle in perfect condition.
          I slide into the driver’s seat, and when I look over at Genevieve as she buckles her seatbelt, a wave of pure, unadulterated lust rolls through me. I’m very aware that I’ve trapped her, that she’s now defenseless to my whims. Not that I’d take advantage, but goddamn, to think that I could…
          I nearly shiver at my own vile thoughts.
         Glad she can’t know what I’m thinking, I flash her a smile. “So. Where am I taking you?”
          “I’m staying at the Park Hyatt on 57th Street.”
          “Fancy.” The Park Hyatt is one of the nicest luxury hotels in New York. That means this girl has money, which isn’t a bad thing. Just, the swell of my wallet in my back pocket is usually one of my better attributes. If wealth doesn’t attract her, I hope I’m not shit out of luck when it comes to getting an invitation up to her room.

ABOUT THE BOOK

When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle…and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist. He’s the perfect candidate for a mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one-night stand.

Reid left his life in Chicago far behind him and hasn’t been back, but he’s never been able to escape the guilt he feels about his own painful role in inviting a monster into his baby sister’s life. A monster who almost destroyed her. Being with Lia is an unexpected gift, one he doesn’t feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. When he surprises her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, in Miami, he’s in for a shock—and a fist to the face—when his past and present collide.

With secrets coming to the surface, Reid and Lia are thrown into a world of betrayal and lies that threatens to pull them under, and the last link to his former life may be the darkest of them all.

Today’s Spotlight: My #review of a series that has given me the strongest #bookhangover EVER‼

todays spotlight read

divider line Naughty Mom Review ★★★★★

          I have this overwhelming need to share the following two books with you. My reading obsession began in the fall of 2013. Since then I have devoured as many stories as I could in search of adventure, romance, fantasy and soulful love as an escape from my day-to-day routine of work and home.
          I’ve come across some stories that disappointed and I’ve come across some that provided that needed respite from life. However, in my quest to devour romances with rock stars, CEO executives, sports stars, bikers and the occasional vampire; I found two stories that, essentially devoured me.
          I had only previously read one other book from this author prior to these and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was unlike anything I had ever read and told from a perspective I had been hoping someone would tell. So when I nabbed her newest series, I couldn’t wait to read them and once I got started… I. COULD. NOT. STOP.
          Then I was so emotionally distraught after reading the first book; I literally had to step away from reading for 24 hrs. The story affected me in ways I didn’t foresee and resisting the urge to huddle on the floor in the fetal position proved difficult. After the short reprieve, I started on the second book. I was ready to find out what was going to happen. If revenge would be as sweet as I’d hoped. And it was. So sweet.
          It was like I was granted new life. I fell in love with new characters that were so different from the first two and made me feel a new onslaught of emotions. I laughed and hurt and I loved every word of it.
          If you’re looking for a story that will speak to you on a level like no other, this is what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a cookie cutter story with the same style and formula that end with the typical HEA like so many books out there, then this isn’t what you’re looking for and you’d be missing out. It’s not all rainbows and flowers and unicorns. It is emotion and hurt, sadness, love and it was so REAL. It was more real than any story I have ever read.
          Last but not least, the writing was absolutely BRILLIANT. The author wrote both in such an artful way. I was able to feel emotionally invested in every character without the usual need for excessive description. Her words were so simple yet complex. She managed to convey so much in such a simplistic way .  There was no need to describe a character’s pain by telling me their heart was ‘bursting like a bolt of lightning crashing from the heavens’ . When they were sad, I FELT sad. When they felt loved, I FELT loved. When they were lost and empty, I too, FELT lost and empty and it was without the frilly word counts to make it more dramatic than it needed to be.
          In all honesty, I don’t know how any of the above could convey enough to you how much these stories spoke to me. They may not be for everyone, and of course they may not speak to you like they spoke to me… but I wouldn’t be doing my part as a reader if I didn’t tell you how they affected me. I truly hope you give these books a shot. If you take up any of my suggestions in a spotlight post, I’d hope that these are the ones you would really consider.

MY REVIEW

ABOUT THE BOOK
First in a new series—welcome to the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club, where hard bodies and hot leather are made for each other, and love gone wrong is the most irresistible of all…

“I was the demon-possessed monster and she was the innocent, naïve angel. But none of that matters. She asks, I give and right now, I’ll kill anyone who tries to stop me from giving this woman what she wants—me.”

Dirk lives in the shadows—performing hits, maintaining order, and upholding the no-holds-barred legacy of the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club. A nomad with a restless spirit and a cold heart, the open road is his world. One of the few constants in his life: his desire for the one woman who has consumed his thoughts for years.

Saylor Samson grew up far from the harshness of Dirk’s world. But ever since she was seventeen she’s been drawn to this dark and mysterious man who always seemed to show up just when she needed him.

After years of fated encounters, he’s back. This time he’s taking her. This time she’s ready for the ride. But just when the darkness in Dirk’s life begins to fade, Saylor reveals a secret that puts them both to the ultimate test. Now, Dirk has to make a decision: submit to his destiny with the MC, or choose his own.

MY REVIEW

ABOUT THE BOOK
The sizzling second book featuring the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club, bikers bent on riding chrome and meting out mayhem…

Shady has spent the last eight years of his life dedicated to the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club. But after losing the man who was both his brother and his best friend, he has a new purpose—to avenge the death of the greatest nomad in Sinner’s Creed history.

His plan is flawless. His mission is simple: seek and destroy. There is no room for distractions—especially a distraction like Diem.

She’s infuriating. Demanding. Complicated. Impossible. And for some reason, Shady can’t stay away. But he only has space in his heart for one love: Sinner’s Creed. And the club always comes first. Always.

ABOUT THE BOOK
“At 18 I had pennies, but money didn’t make me bold. At 19 I had dollars, but it didn’t dull the pain of being sold. At 20 I had hundreds, but then I met him and was found. At 21 I had thousands, but all I wanted was to be bound.”
“At 23 I had dollars, but life changed and made me rich. At 25 I had hundreds, but it wasn’t enough to stop my killing itch. At 27 I had thousands, but my reputation didn’t set me free. At 29 I had millions, but I met her and could finally see.”

Tasmin was killed on her 18th birthday. She had everything planned out. A psychology degree, a mother who pushed her to greatness, and a future anyone would die for. But then her murderer saved her life, only to sell her into a totally different existence.
Elder went from penniless to stinking rich with one twist of fate. His lifetime of crime and shadows of thievery are behind him but no matter the power he now wields, it’s not enough. He has an agenda to fulfil and he won’t stop until it’s complete.
But then they meet.
A beaten slave and a richly dressed thief. Money is what guided their separate fates. Money is what brought them together. And money is ultimately what destroys them.
She was poor.
He was rich.

divider line EXCERPT Fuck this.
I stalked forward.
My hand came up.
The urge to soothe her catapulted my fingers to her cheek. My skin erupted from her delicate heat. I’d already had my single touch when I’d petted her hair. I wasn’t permitted a second.
But it didn’t stop me.
One second, she stood close, arching her chin at the door.
The next, she was across the cage, flying into a stack of boxes that tumbled in a clatter of butcher knives, butter knives, and sharp forks.
Her eyes turned luminous in the gloom, locking on mine with rage.
Shit.
I’d forgotten myself by feeling sorry for this beaten wraith, but she hadn’t forgotten her overwhelming hatred of men.
I didn’t look away. But I didn’t explain myself, either.
I’d borrowed her for the night. If I wanted to touch her, I could. The fact that she’d leapt away meant I could report her to her master and have her punished.
Or you could punish her instead.
The distance between us grew thicker as we breathed fast.
I waited…wanting to know just how deep her education in pleasure flowed. Tearing her gaze from mine, she swallowed hard. Piece by piece, she hid her loathing, replacing it with reluctant acceptance.
Inching closer, her toes nudged aside sharp blades as she made her way to me and fell to her knees on the cold concrete.
Half of me jolted with insane lust. Most of me shied away with repulsion as her straggly hair covered her face but not before I saw the twisted disgust and echoing despair.
“Get up,” I murmured. Even though my voice was low, the cavern of the garage amplified it, layering it with bite.
Instantly, she swooped up. The crackle of her joints and misused cartilage in her bones sounded like tiny gunfire.
“Don’t kneel. Not in here.”

Today’s Spotlight-#Review & $25 GC #Giveaway: This is the Route of Twisted Pain by MariaLisa deMora – Are you ready to get Twisted?

todays spotlight read
twisted pain teaser

divider line naughty mom review★★★★★

WOW! This is the Route of Twisted Pain has introduced new characters that I absolutely love. Incoherent MC has now been added to my FAVORITES bikers list. I didn’t think I could love any bikers as much as I do my Rebels, but these guys are up there.

George Bell aka Twisted was such an great character. His life wasn’t easy, but every hardship was a learning curve. He made the most of his youth until he was brought into the life of the Incoherent MC. That’s when he learned about family and brotherhood. He was made for that life and was such an honorable guy. He did what needed to be done for his club, no matter what. He was intelligent, even at a young age. Knew how to think things through. I totally admired this guy.

Penny Dane was raised in the club life. She knew the rules and respected them. Raised under then “Princess” title, she was everyone’s little girl and treasured by her uncle’s club. But being Princess doesn’t mean she’s too delicate to handle what’s needed. She proves that she’s willing to do whatever it takes, no matter the sacrifice. She’s a flower with thorns, for sure.

When fate stepped in and brought these two together, it was amazing. Their first scene was hot, sexy, sensual, intimidate…did I say hot?? Warning: don’t read this at work, like I did. I got all hot and bothered and couldn’t do anything about it. I just couldn’t stop reading.

I don’t know how MariaLisa deMora does it, but she manages to tell an entire life story before getting to a quarter of the book. It’s an absolute gift. By then, you know and love the character before the good stuff even hits the pages. I’m invested early on and feel like I’ve lived their lives right along side them without feeling like the story has been dragged out. She knows have to deliver the important stuff and get you to the meat of the story.

I loved this book and the characters so much. I can’t wait for more of the Incoherent MC. I’m hoping Po’Boy is next.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Legends are born from moments like these. Folktales spun around a single point in time so perfect, you can almost hear the click resonating through the universe as things align.

George Bell, aka Twisted, knows the odds are against him. Have been all his life. Born in a Louisiana bordello, raised around the rough and rowdy men of a motorcycle club, he’s never been the lucky type. But he believes luck can change, so when fate gives him a glimpse of breathtaking beauty, he’s more than willing to roll the dice. Chancing upon what could be the woman of his dreams, he’s prepared to push this streak as far as he can.

Penny Dane’s background gives her an edge in the life she’s chosen to lead. Raised in a can-do family, she’s resilient, rolling with life’s punches and landing on her feet. But, when the past holds painful secrets—when a single misstep can turn deadly—can she trust the passion this man stirs in her?

On the surface, Bell and Penny don’t work. Their mismatched worlds are too different. But like a backwater bayou, what you see is not the whole story, there are mysteries buried underneath. Penny is the red-haired beauty caught up in a web of lies. Bell is like no one she’s ever met before. The problem is, he knows it.

Today’s Spotlight: Five Star #Review of CHAINED (Caged #2) by D.H. Sidebottom

todays spotlight read
Chained t1 no date

divider line naughty mom review✯✯✯✯✯

Be sure to read Caged BEFORE you pick up Chained. This is a continuations of Anderson and Kloe’s story and picks up right where Caged left off. Without the first book, you won’t have a clue about what is going on. Trust me, you’ll want to get started on it ASAP.

It’s been a while since an author sucked me into their story, pushed me out off the cliff and them stomped on my heart. And D.H. Sidebottom did that to me with this book. When I read Caged, I was a bit confused with the characters. I didn’t fully understand them or what they offered each other, but it ALL came together in Chained. The connection became so clear, I felt like a doofus for not seeing it before. The suspense, thrills and darkness within the story and characters was captivating. I learned to love Anderson and Kloe, deeply. Their connection was something way beyond what I expected and I was absolutely thrown for a loop.

When Chained starts off, she’s fully aware that Anderson has been playing her, but he’s not the only one. People have been weaseling into her life and trying to drag her back into a past she thought was long gone. Anderson knows, but he’s had his own agenda all along. Poor Kloe can’t trust anyone, but she loves Anderson and she’s willing to do whatever he needs so that she can provide him the closure she wasn’t able to in the previous book. She made a promise to him and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep it. Even if it means giving herself to him…COMPLETELY. A sacrifice she never would have considered before. Love knows know bounds and kindred spirits is what they are. The share an understanding of such a twisted childhood that they were practically made for each other.

Oh, this was such a roller coaster for me. From page to page, I was trying to guess who was playing who? What was going to happen next? And will Anderson give up his plan for revenge? It’s a guessing game and ultimately, you’re thrown into a tailspin of emotion that will leave you empty for some time. It took me two day to recover from this hangover. That’s a rare thing for me. I usually bounce back like a yo-yo.

D.H. Sidebottom is the Queen of twisted manipulation and she’s proven she plans to hold on to that title every chance she gets. I can’t wait for her next masterpiece.

Caged (Caged #1)

ABOUT THE BOOK
The Conclusion to Caged. Caged MUST be read before this book.

I had once thought that when I found the light I had been searching for in that long, dark tunnel that it would finally give me the gift I had been holding on for.
I had scoured the joyless night sky for peace, a peace that only the brightness of the stars could grant.
And I had endeavoured to catch that single magic snowflake in the middle of a howling snowstorm.
I had been looking. Forever.

But little did I know that it WAS the sinister darkness in the tunnel that was the gift. It WAS the black reservoir of the deepest, darkest night that would be the very thing to give my chaotic soul peace. And it WAS the heaving rush of the bleakest blizzard that was filled with magic.

Anderson Cain WAS the darkness.
He WAS the black peace in my soul.
And within the raging pool of his wild green eyes WAS the magic.
The magic that saw me. The real me.
He made sure I saw me too. All of me. He’d told me he would make me accept who I really was.

I was Kloe Grant. And now – now I am the epitome of what he wanted me to be.

But when I finally let go, and I allowed that darkness to find me, neither of us was prepared for who I really was.

Death itself.
