📚Review: The Bohemian and the Businessman (The Story Sisters #1) by Katy Regnery – ONLY 99c thru Sunday!!

The Bohemian and the Businessman by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved every Blueberry Lane character Katy Regnery has brought to life with her beautiful storytelling, but I don’t think I could have adored any of them more than I did Priscilla Story and Shane Olson.

I’ll admit, I didn’t even pay attention to the blurb. If it’s from Katy Regnery, it’s an instant buy. I have yet to read a story from her that I just didn’t love. So when I started reading The Bohemian and the Businessman I didn’t know what was in store for me. And in my opinion, that’s just the best way to go. Sure the blurb gives the premise, but going in blind is so much more enjoyable. At least it is in my opinion.

Anyways, throughout the series, we’ve heard a little about the Story sisters and I was so pleased to finally get to know the Story family. I kind of feel like Priscilla Story is my spirit animal. She was so free-spirited person and stuck out like a sore thumb in her uptight family. I was just as amazed as Shane was that even with the distant relationships with her siblings and the mysogonistic cretan she calls father, she’s managed to remain so bright. Even having been hurt in the past, she still looks at the beauty in the world with eyes wide open. It was so refreshing.

Shane Olson couldn’t have been more opposite if they from different planets. Her laid back, come what may attitude was something he had no room for in his life. He had a mission. His only goal was to work his way up the ladder and become CEO of Story Imports. He’s worked hard over the years toward that goal. He had tunnel vision when it came to his ambition. He wanted the security and luxury all that hard work would grant him. Coming from a dairy farm, he knows what tough times feels like and there is no one that will get in his way of striving for a life completely opposite from the life he left behind.

Oh, could he have been so wrong. Seeing those two together was just… awwwww! I don’t know how many times my heart melting when they had their moments when all pretenses were gone. They may have been completely different on the outside, but it was like they shared the same soul. Their wants and needs may have manifested differently throughout their lives to make them who they were, but there was no denying they were perfect for one another.

I don’t know how she does it, but every time I read a story by Katy Regnery I feel physically feel it in my heart. The flutters, palpitations, the warmth. I honestly have a physical reaction to her characters and their journeys.

This story was absolutely beautiful, sweet and charming! Another WIN in my book.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
Priscilla was primal – a storm, a tornado, a wild thing, the very definition of distracting. She wasn’t sensible. She wasn’t predictable. And she definitely wasn’t convenient.

“I barely know you, Priscilla, but what I do know feels…wild. Too wild. Agreeing to anything having to do with you feels reckless. In too many ways to count.”

Had she misjudged him? Underestimated his experience? Was he a stiff businessman by day and some sort of closet sex fiend by night?

He was-just as he’d been the first night she saw him again several weeks ago at Forrester- an anchor in her stormy world.

He wondered if the sun set inside of Priscilla every night, safe there until morning, making her vibrant and warn from the inside out, leaving enough of its powerful rays behind so that she could shine all day long.

He’d never really seen her coming…and then, one day, he woke up and she was his everything.

📚Review: Dirty Thief (Dirty Players #4) by Tia Louise

Dirty Thief by Tia Louise
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dirty Thief was a wonderful addition to the Dirty Players series. I really enjoyed getting more Ava. She wasn’t as prominent in the series as Zelda, so see her growth and maturity in this story was great.

With suspense brought by Ava’s returning past and duties expected of the Quenn Regent, Ava has quite a bit on her plate, but she loves it. Having spent her childhood dreaming of being a princess or being saved by a prince, she’s living her dream life and couldn’t be happier. From the previous books, she was always being protected by her sister, Zelda, and came across as fragile. In Dirty Thief, she was able to shine on her own and show her true inner strength. It was brilliant.

What I enjoyed most was that no matter what duties awaited, Rowan and Ava managed to keep the heat level in their lives turned up to max setting. Her innocent, sweetness kept Rowan extremely turned on and by just her mere presence, he was set to blow. Ava’s submissive side was eager to please and she was always willing to ease Rowan’s stress from the day. She was a great wife.

I enjoyed the suspense, but I didn’t quite understand how the events played out. Rowan and Ava were the monarchy of Monagasco, so why mere threaths to Ava’s security weren’t treated as such just baffled me. There were moments where I just pictured Rowan, Ava, Zelda and Caleb as the Scooby Gang. They way they planned out ways to try and catch the villian just seemed a bit pointless. Nonetheless, it all worked out and I really enjoyed the story.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
I’ve found my happily ever after, and I’ll be damned if I let some lowlife asshole take it away from me. The fist of anger, the survivor will of iron that has always been inside me roars to life.

Warm fires of love and bonding flow between us. She’s passionate and perfect. She’s my fire and ice.

📚Review: Faking It (Book Boyfriend #2) by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Faking It by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Every now and then, it’s extremely refreshing to come across a story that is just so sweet and swoon-worthy that your heart just melts and by the end of the story you’re just a ball of warm, loving goo.

That is what Faking It did for me. I don’t alway need my Hero to be redeemed or changed. Sometimes you just want the guy to be a good guy from the start and Max Sterling was all that and more. A complete and total gentlemen with a big heart, Max Sterling had me swooning and ready to rip my panties right off the bat.

Gosh, he was so damn sexy. The way he was with Hailey, I couldn’t help but get jealous. The way he calmed her fears and insecurities just had me gushing. It’s been so long since I’ve melted so easily for the characters in a story and Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde gave me the perfect reason to do just that.

Hailey ran a successful matchmaking business and Max was the agent helping her locate the perfect locale for expanding her office space. In the span of just a few months, they’ve quietly lusted after each other and remained respectful and professional when they were around each other. But that all changes when he finds out she’s available. From there, he’s totally up for taking the fake fiance role to the next level and she’s completely on board.

In getting to know each other, the grow much closer and Hailey trusts him with her reasons for the charade and by revealing the insecurities she’s lived with since she was young. And he takes it on as his duty to protect her and change that by doing everything in his power to make her feel sexy.

Gah, that man. Gets me wet just thinking about him again. He was a total gentleman on the streets and a total beast in the sheets. Oooh, I get shivers just remembering it all.

FAVORITE QUOTE:
“Greedy girl. You can have both the whipped cream and the chocolate sauce…as long as I get to eat your cherry.”

“I kind of feel like I’m back in high school and the hottest guy on campus just noticed me.”
“I’ve more than noticed you, sweet girl.”

“That pretty mouth of yours has some begging to do, and I’m ready to hear it.”

“You always have these kinds of erotic dreams?”
“Mostly since meeting you,” she admitted.

“How do you want me?”
“Every fucking way I can have you,” he answered automatically, and meant it in more ways that just this physical act. “But right now, I’ll take you just like this.”

📚Review: Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen #5) by Tillie Cole

Damnable Grace by Tillie Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I get when my precious Hangmen return. Each story is gripping. Filled with emotion, passion and plenty of action and suspense, I get everything I could possibly want in a story. I couldn’t have imagined what I would get from AK’s tale and the emotions that flooded me were truly intense.

AK or Xavier Deyes started out as a bright eyed boy that looked up to his big brother and wanted to follow in his footsteps. After years in the military, he finds his way to the Hades Hangmen MC. Just like the other men of the club, he too, has a past that haunts him, but he’s always been one of the jovial ones that keeps the mood light. But everyone has their days and he’s approaching his.

Determined to save the red head, Phebe, we met toward the end of Rider’s story in Deep Redemption, he finds himself revisiting all the pain of his past as he helps Phebe recover from the life she lived and the trauma she endured.

With new foes and an even more twisted villain, the Hangmen have their work cut out for them; but to see AK and Phebe both support each other as they heal from present and past wounds, it was absolutely beautiful.  The connection they shared wasn’t just in the attraction and pull but it was also a shared sense of guilty.  Not having been able to protect the ones they loved dearly. That failure has left a mark on them that they recognize in each other.  It was sad, yet beautiful.

Each story progresses in the timeline for the Hangmen while giving us a new and refreshing look and the guys and their women. Tillie Cole even gives us a peak and Flame and his growth; which is exponential from his story in Souls Unfractured. I can tell that there is so much more to come from these guys and the bad guys they come up against. I just know it’s going to be even more amazing and nail biting.

FAVORITE QUOTES:
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

For the first time in a long time, I didn’t feel so f*cking alone. All because of Red.
Red and her f*cking face of freckles.

“AK . . . I want you . . . to ownme.”

“I am at peace.” Her eyebrows furrowed. “Does that make sense? That you bring me peace?”
“Yeah,” I said and, as I watched her face, I realized she did the fucking same to me. “You give me peace too.”

“I love you, Xavier Deyes. I love you more than I knew was possible. You are my grace. You are my redemption.”

“The devil’s man with the angel eyes.” I breathed. He breathed. We kissed. Broke apart. “The damned souls who together found grace.”

Ride Rough (Raven Riders #2, April 25th)

EXCERPT
It was one of Maverick’s favorite dreams.

He and Alexa had gone up to Swallow Falls in Western Maryland for a weekend getaway and were staying in one of the mini cabins at the state park. After a day of hiking and swimming and picnicking outside, they’d come back to their cabin tired and ready to crash, but getting naked for showers had sidetracked them for hours. And even once they finally fell asleep, Maverick was hard and ready every time he woke up, and he took her again and again, falling asleep still buried inside her . . .

And fuck if he wasn’t ready right now.

He burrowed his face in Alexa’s soft hair and banded his arm around her stomach. His hand filled with the soft mound of her breast. He pulled her back against his chest and ground his erection against the swell of her ass.

“Maverick,” she moaned.

Hell, yeah. He nuzzled her neck, kissed her there, tasting and nipping and sucking. God, he needed in her. “Fuck, Alexa,” he whispered.

Her hand gripped his. “Maverick.”

He rolled her under him and crawled on top of her, his body falling into the cradle of her spread thighs.

“Uh, Maverick.”

He frowned and kissed her jaw, her cheek, her mouth. It was the kiss that did it. Something wasn’t right. The memory playing out in his sleep-fogged mind didn’t feel like the reality confronting his physical senses. His eyes blinked open. And he found himself lying on top of Alexa. Not in the cabin at Swallow Falls years before. In the gray morning light of his house. Her wide hazel eyes stared up at him.

He reared off of her in an instant. “Fuck,” he said, coming to stand by the couch. Alexa looked stunned—and so fucking sexy that Maverick barely resisted crawling back on top of her. She lay on her back in his clothes, on his couch, her knees drawn up and falling out, her hair sleep-mussed and sexy. Jesus. He adjusted himself, unable to hide his raging hard-on, and scrubbed at his face. “Goddamn dream. I’m sorry, Alexa. I didn’t mean to do that.”

“You . . . you were dreaming. Of me?” she whispered.

His gaze narrowed. “Don’t ask a question you don’t want the answer to.”

📚Reviews for new releases from Bestselling authors Penelope Ward/Vi Keeland, M. Robinson and Kylie Scott

April has been off to an amazing start.  These new releases were absolutely amazing and had my jaw dropping, my heart pounding and my knickers wet. Each one is at the top of my recommendations list for your e-readers!!

Mister Moneybags by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland
Ends Here by M. Robinson
Twist by Kylie Scott

Mister Moneybags by Vi Keeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’d like to take a moment to bow down and give praise to the ever impressive and absolutely outstanding collaborative genius duo that is Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland.

Now on to the amazingness that is Mister Moneybags…

This book was so much more than I expected or could have ever imagined. Once I started, I literally couldn’t put it down. It was funny, witty, sexy and filled with a completely addictive Telenovela style drama that kept me hooked through and through. So much so, a camera could have panned in for great response close ups like…

Bianca George was awesome. She was funny, quick witted, independent, adventurous and spunky. She was like my spirit animal. Dexter Truitt Jr was totally sexy, smart, kind and quite romantic. Together they were absolutely perfect. The sexual tension was evident from their very first meeting which happens to be the best elevator scene I’ve come across. Sure you can get heavy petting, insane kissing and crazy hot sex from the typical elevator scenes, but Bianca had BALLS, which opened them up to some seriously funny conversations. I was laughing my ass off just 3% in to the story. That will always stand out and remain memorable for me.

It just got better from there. From Dex’s crazy idea to pursue Bianca under a fake persona, to his even crazier problem of being jealous of said guy. But what also touched me was the topic this book touched on. Lies. Big lies and little white lies lead to serious emotional hurt with a potential for chaotic situations. With equal measure of emotion to counter the humor this story had the perfect combination for an entertaining read.

I can’t fathom how these two authors manage to top their previous releases, but they do it each and every time. Their talent and genius knows no bounds and their continuous originality in the characters and story lines hook me in every time.

It’s impossible to be disappointed with any element in this book. It has everything you could want!!

☑ A sexy millionaire
☑ A spunky, headstrong female
☑ Soap Opera level drama
☑ Super high levels of sexual tension
☑ So many LOL moments
☑ Passion and romance

This all totaled up to be an unforgettable and must recommend read!

FAVORITE QUOTES:
An off sensation suddenly came over me. One I could honestly say I had never felt before. It was jealousy. But not just any jealousy. Jealousy of my own f*cking self. Suddenly, Jay wanted to f*ck up Dex in the worst way.

“I want to help you relax before we leave.”
“How are you going to manage that?”
“It’s time your pu**y became acquainted with my mouth.”

I smiled back and looked Dex in the eyes for a long while. What was staring back at me was absolutely beautiful. Not the man himself, but looking into his eyes, I saw love in its purest form. It was honest and open and willing to give me anything I wanted.

Ends Here by M. Robinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Damn! I thought part one of Creed and Mia’s story was epic. Ends Here had so much more!!!

Ends Here isn’t just an ending to their story. It’s the beginning of a new and touch chapter to the saga that is their life story. It picks up exactly where Road to Nowhere leaves us and Mia is in danger.

Basketball GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

While Creed works hard to protect Mia from an unknown enemy, she and him grow closer in their relationship. Now that Creed has stopped pushing her away, they work to planning their future. The problem is, she’s also spending much more time with his brother, Noah and finds her self torn between them. She loves Creed, but deep down Noah stirs feelings in her that she works hard to ignore. Her heart belongs to Creed, so she’s using that organ to override what her body is feeling.

I can’t give too much away. Their story is way more intense and better experienced for yourself. I know it was a ride I thoroughly enjoyed. I cried for each character equally. My heart broke for Mia, Creed and Noah… but I have to say I’m #TeamNoah all the way. Which team will you join?

FAVORITE QUOTES:
“You, Mia. Bein’ with you is my favorite f*ckin’ thing to do.”

“I need to see you. Hold you..f*ckin’ feel you. And it’s takin’ everythin’ in me, not to f*ckin’ kiss you right now and remind you who the f*ck you belong to.”

“You were always wit’ me, Mia. No matter where I went, where I’ve gone, what I’ve seen and what I’ve done…you have never not been wit’ me. You’ve always been my home.”

All I ever wanted was for you to be happy, and if it’s not wit’ me, then at least I have the memory of the love of my f*ckin’ life.”

“Jesus Christ, you’re my everythin’. You’ll always be my everythin’. The little girl who f*ckin’ saved me from myself more times than I can count. The same one who made me realize what love was, what havin’ the love of a good woman felt like. I never deserved you, baby, but God, I don’t f*ckin’ care.”

We were lobsters that got lost at sea, but made their way back to each other.

Twist by Kylie Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved Twist so much! I adored Lydia and quickly fell for Vaughn while reading the first book in this series (Dirty)…but none of that compared to my connection with Joe and Alex. They didn’t get off to a good start but their pace and personalities just kept me rooting for them and looking forward to tham “boom” moment when they come to their senses. You won’t believe when it happens to Alex.

Alexandra Parks is a graphic designer from Seattle who starts an online friendship with a gorgeous restaurator from Idaho. She’s slightly antisocial, sarcastic and a sex crazed woman and is officially my spirit sister. After a surprise visit, she finds out she’s been catfished. But lucky for her she couldn’t have been catfished by a better guy.

#Impastor GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Joe Collins is the sweet, hardworking older brother to one of the Dive Bar owners. He only meant to make a friend and have someone to talk to outside of his circle of life long friends. He never expected her to show up unannounced. Joe was so fricking adorable. On the outside, he was burly and manly and on the inside he was a marshmallow with a heart of gold. He was so caring and giving and worked hard to make sure he was available to help everyone he cared about.

You see? Alex and Joe couldn’t have been more different. Complete and total opposits yet, they were absolutely perfect for each other.

Twist was FUNNY and sweet and a great example of not ‘judging a book by its cover’, so to speak. Alex thought the handsome Mr. GQ type was what she was looking for and finds out her soulmate lies in a Lumbersexual hottie who’s great with his hands. Case in point?…looks don’t make the man. Personality and how he treats people is the most attractive trait.

=> Start the Dive Bar SeriesTODAY <=

FAVORITE QUOTES:

“Mind you, I didn’t have a clue then how cute you looked in your Little Miss F*cking Sunshine panties.”
Huh. I cocked my head. “You flirting with me, Bigfoot?”

Fingers dug into my hair and his mouth covered mine, hot and hungry. There was no going slow. We were a car crash, a catastrophe. His tongue in my mouth and my hands pushing at his coat, tearing at his T-shirt. One large hand slid down over my spine, grabbing my ass and kneading, while the other cradled the back of my head.

Butterflies didn’t cover it. There were pterodactyls inside my stomach, swooping and screeching and flying around. Not even they, however, could compete with the throbbing ache in my pu**y.

Joe, the man formerly known as just my friend, was some kind of a f*cking sex god.

📚Review: LEGALLY CHARMING (Ever After #1) by Lauren Smith

A workaholic lawyer comes home during a Halloween party and finds a princess sleeping in his bed. Find out what happens next in LEGALLY CHARMING, first in Lauren Smith’s newest #contemporaryromance #newadultromance series, Ever After!

✯✯✯✯

A charming and sweet romance!

Felicity Hart and Jared Redmond are from different worlds and at different point in their lives. Felicity is an Art History Grad student with dreams of being an art curator in a well known gallery/museum. Jared is a workaholic attorney working on the partnership path.

But one night he finds a princess in his bed and it all changes for the both of them. They have great chemistry and find a comfortable ease with the other person that allows them to release and be themselves where they aren’t able to otherwise. Felicity helps Jared enjoy a slower pace in life. He love of art opens him up to new things and teaches him to enjoy those things he would have normally ignored. For Felicity, having him in her life gives her a boost in confidence. Being young and having spent her every available moment studying and working, the nerd in her finds a new zest for life when she realizes that sexy Jared has his eye on her.

Aside from building a fast and easy friendship, they find that their attraction is something that is propelling them in to uncharted territory. Jared has never had to juggle work with a personal life and Felicity’s young and fragile confidence has trouble accepting their budding relationship.

I found it a bit hard to connect with the characters on a level beyond surface appreciation for their story, but it was an enjoyable romance. It follows a similar format as many contemporary romances, but was a good story to enjoy when dealing with a book hangover or looking for a quick read. I’ve been a fan of Lauren Smith’s other works and this one was much “softer” than the others I’ve read. It was different but was just well written as the others.

ABOUT THE BOOK

THE RIGHT DRESS CAN CATCH THE EYE OF PRINCE CHARMING…

Felicity Hart has one goal: Completing her masters in art. Falling in love isn’t part of the plan. She reluctantly agrees to attend a Halloween party with her best friend. After sneaking away from the party and falling asleep in an unoccupied room, she wakes to the sexiest pair of eyes she’s ever seen. Eyes that belong to the one man who could turn her well organized world upside down. When he flashes that wicked, panty-melting smile at her the vow to not fall in love seems impossible…

EVERY PRINCE IS LOOKING FOR HIS SLEEPING BEAUTY TO KISS…

Jared Redmond used to be the ultimate bad boy. But now his legal career is taking off and the partners of his firm are trusting him with high-dollar real estate transactions. Jared’s king-size bed is empty. But when he arrives home on Halloween to find a princess sleeping in his bed – his all work and no play attitude goes out the window. There’s nothing he wants more than to explore the hidden desires of this mysterious beauty and show her just how much of a bad boy he really is by fulfilling her every fantasy.

WHEN MIDNIGHT STRIKES AND COACHES TURN TO PUMPKINS…

Underneath the glitter of this fairy tale romance, Felicity and Jared might have found true love. But the mounting pressure of their real lives takes hold again and Jared and Felicity are pulled further and further apart. Can they find their fairy tale ending or will they be left with the dying embers of what could have been?

Read an Excerpt of Dirty Filthy Rich Men – Coming in 6 days (FREE prequal)

Dirty Filthy Rich Men, an all-new contemporary romance from NYT Bestseller Laurelin Paige is coming March 27th!

After she was gone, I walked over to the windows and drank in the scene. The Town Center was high enough that it had an unblocked view of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, and beyond.
Giddiness surged through me, starting like a pinprick at my center and moving out through my veins in all directions until even my fingers and toes felt warm.
I was really here.
I made it.
It wasn’t the way I thought it would be, but in the end, it still came out of my time at Harvard. I’d always known that connections made the difference in a career, and here I was. Finally. At the top of the world, looking out.
I couldn’t stop grinning.
“It’s incredible, isn’t it?” a male voice came from behind me.
Still smiling, I glanced up and caught his reflection in the window.
And everything disappeared.
The world that had buzzed below, the beautiful scene, the excitement that had unfurled through my body—all of it evaporated and all that existed in its place was a pale, hollow shell of myself and the man in the perfectly tailored suit behind me.
I turned to look at him directly. Our gazes smashed together, and my legs nearly fell out from under me.
“Donovan,” I rasped. It was a miracle that I managed to find enough voice to say that much.
And there was so much more that had to be said. So much more that I hadn’t prepared for. Which was ridiculous since I’d talked to him so many times in my head over the years, practiced so many conversations, but never did he show up out of the blue looking so dastardly handsome in a dark gray three-piece suit, his face rugged with scruff, his eyes hazel and earnest despite the playful smirk on his lips.
I opened my mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I wasn’t even sure how to breathe anymore.
He broke our gaze to nod out the window at the skyline, walking toward me as he said, “I’m sure you found the Empire.”
Though his focus was now on the scenery, I didn’t take my eyes off him as he approached. He didn’t stop until he was right beside me. So close our shoulders would touch if I coughed. Tension ran off him like foam spilling over from a mug of beer. Good tension. Bad tension. I wasn’t sure if there was a difference when it came to Donovan.
Which was why I was screwed if he was here.
Why the hell was he here?
“I thought you were in Tokyo.” I couldn’t stop staring at him. He’d gotten more refined with age, and rougher at the same time. His hair was short and his curls gone, giving him a polished look he lacked before. The lines by his eyes were more defined and his expression seemed harder than I’d remembered. It made him sexier.
As if he was a man who needed to be sexier than the one I knew.
“I came back two months ago,” he said offhandedly. “That’s it right there.” He leaned his face in close to mine as he pointed to the famous structure. “Do you see it?”
Fuck if I cared about the Empire. I was in Donovan Kincaid’s orbit. What else was there in the world?

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

ABOUT THE BOOK
On the outside my life seems simple. I’m an average woman with a love for motorcycles. A high school teacher who’s a single mother. But what you don’t know is what lingers just beneath the surface…
The desires
The needs.
This hunger that can never be fully satiated.
Part of me knows it’s bad. That I shouldn’t crave what I do. But the other half doesn’t give a fu*k.
I’m split in two. Which is how I’ve spent most of my life.
Torn in half by conflicting emotions. By the man I desire, but shouldn’t. By the secrets that I hide from almost everyone.
Then…
One day, everything changes…
My world is turned upside down and I’m left falling…
Falling toward something special.
Toward a sense of belonging that I find in the strangest of places. With someone I never thought I’d be with in my wildest dreams.

I’m Gwen Donovan and this is my journey to love and self acceptance.
Let’s just hope, that in the end, it doesn’t bite me in the ass.

Warning: Contains shameless adult sexual content, taboo situations, graphic violence, profanity that’d make your grandmother blush, a woman who has multiple orgasms, a vast array of possible triggers including past sexual assault so expect anything.

This was one naughty and deliciously erotic story.

Nowhere has got to be Bink Cummings’s best work yet. It had a level of eroticism that her other books didn’t and had be burning hot from the beginning.

nowhere-teaser-2I’m a huge fan of Bink Cummings’ work. Her writing style is my absolute favorite because she has the knack of making me feel a part of the story. The characters don’t just narrate a story, they speak to me. So when I started Nowhere, I’d already heard how hot it was from others that read it, but I didn’t realize how true that was until I read it for myself. Damn! It was SMOKIN’ HOT. 4% in and I was already wishing for alone time and hating that I was stuck at work. Shoot, if I had B.O.B with me, I would have locked my office door during my lunch hour. It was THAT sexy.

Nowhere is the story of Gwen Donovan. A thirty something school teacher and single mother with a hidden desire for dark kink and a very complicated relationship with her stepbrother and Crimson Outlaws MC V.P., Nash McQueen.

But when Gwen gets the chance to get away for a bit, she had no idea that things would change and a man she couldn’t stand would be the one to fill the emptiness she felt. Wesley King is cocky, sexy and rich. He makes no excuses for who he is and has no problem with any of it. He knows who he is, what he likes and what he wants and does what he pleases. But when Gwen spends more time with him, she sees a side to him she never thought existed. And he gives her the comfort and confidence she needed to embrace that darker side of her that she battles daily.

nowhere-teaser-4She struggled so much with reconciling her school teacher self with the wanton, sex crazed, kink loving goddess within and Wes holds no judgement and even loves that side of her. It was like they fed off each others desires and when they finally connected, it was amazing.

Nowhere was a great story of self-discovery and I enjoyed traveling that road with Gwen. She was a strong woman from the get-go but by the end, she was so much stronger. It was practically empowering. I cannot wait to find out what happens next when Somewhere is released.

📚Review Spotlight of JADED HEARTS (Loaded Replay #1) by Harper Sloan

todays spotlight read
jadedhearts_frontcover_loresJaded Hearts by Harper Sloan
Loaded Replay #1
Release Date: December 13, 2016

ABOUT THE BOOK
Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted—our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world.
It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.
Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.
Dreams were just that…something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.
Happiness…that feeling is a joke.
In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.

Jaded Hearts will kick off the Loaded Replay series – which will be a series of interconnected standalones. The cast and crew of Jaded Hearts was introduced to us for the first time briefly in Unexpected Fate. You do not need to read that book in order to fully enjoy Jaded Hearts. Happy reading!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jaded Hearts was a wonderful start to Harper Sloan’s new series, Loaded Replay. An alpha security expert and a fiery, feisty rockstar… What more could I ask for??

Jaded Hearts captivated me the moment I read the Prologue. By the time I began Chapter One, I knew what I needed to know to start the journey Penelope was about to embark on.

modernrock_loresWrenlee Davenport is the pixie lead singer of Loaded Replay, the band that is filling up stadiums around the world and only growing bigger in popularity with the masses. With her twin brother, Weston, and their two long time friends, Luke and Jamison, she makes music and lives life on the road touring and performing the music they love. But she’s reached a point that no matter how many people she’s surrounded by, she’s still lonely. The allure of he state and audience no longer holds that sparkle and rush she loved so much. But when her very protective and loving brother Wes, brings on extra security, Chance Nash brings about what is missing her life to bring that all back.

Chance was introduced to us in the Home Town series as Cohen’s roommate and best friend. With Jaded Hearts, he gets his chance at love. A former special ops marine, he was hired into Corps Security back in Atlanta. Guilt from failure, in his eyes, he jumps at the chance to take on a job that will take him out of town and away for some change in his life. And the moment he steps into the same room as Wren, that change is evident and strong.

I loved Wren’s feisty boldness. She was so adorably cute and loved by her brother and band mates. She was humble and funny and was exactly what Chance needed to counteract his rough, military edges. There was a definite transformation from his first appearance to the ending but never lost his alpha tendencies and extreme protectiveness.3-chance

Jaded Hearts was a GREAT start to a new series and Harper Sloan has always been one of my automatic oneclicks. She fails to disappoint in her storytelling abilities and Chance and Wren are just two more characters I have fallen in love with. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
