Naughty Mom Review: TARGET THIS by Lily White

Target ThisTarget This by Lily White

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 star for this mind f*ck.

Lily White brings a new concept with each new story. As I read each page, I found myself wondering what was happening next. What I expected was not what the reader would typically expect. Target This explores the mind of the anti-hero and why he does what he does. This book delves into the art of manipulation and I couldn’t help but think,”WTF?” as I read the last pages.

I find it difficult to explain what’s behind the pages of this book without giving too much away…

Autumn Cleary is the typical librarian type. Prim and proper with all aspects of her life as sterile as can be. One day, she comes across a dark, mysterious and handsome man that turns her world upside down.

Lucas Bates is a writer with dark fantasies who makes a living putting those desires on paper for the masses. He seems Autumn as a challenge being that she’s the complete opposite of his readers/fans. They don’t get a long and she utterly despises him, but events in her life leave her no choice but to seek his help. Which turns out to be a HUGE mistake.

The events that followed had my head spinning. I couldn’t decide whether I was for or against Lucas. Which are the same feelings Autumn went through. I felt like I was in her shoes as I read this story. That alone speaks volumes of how well written the story was. Lily did a great job of making you feel the manipulation that Autumn goes through.

Another great read for this Naughty Mom.

Devil’s Game (Reaper’s MC #3)  

Author: Joanna Wylde

Release Date: June 3, 2014

Sypnosis:

Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies—the Reapers—using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her. Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger—a man who isn’t afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn’t afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One. Or so she thinks.

Devil’s Game is by far my favorite of the Reaper’s MC series.  Em and Hunter were such great characters and were totally relate-able.  Hopefully you’ve read Reaper’s Property and Reaper’s Legacy.  If not download them now.  Trust me, you’ll love them just as much.  Though it’s possible to read this without them, you’ll learn so much more about all the other characters in the this story.  Also, there are some scenes in Devil’s Game that overlap with scenes in Reaper’s Legacy when we learn of Sophie and Ruger’s story.

I loved Em and Hunter.  Hunter is the typical fuck ’em and chuck ’em biker who’s only love is the love for his MC and Em is the daughter of an MC president and a rival to Hunter’s.  Because of the situation between the two MCs, they’re thrust in a situation where there is no denying their attraction to each other.  Though they fight it it’s still under their skin and unshakeable.  It was interesting to the Em’s strength from her life of living with an MC.  She’s a very strong young woman and demonstrates that strength time and time again throughout this book.

Both characters had GREAT chemistry and the writing was superb.  Conversations between the characters were natural and Joanna did a magnificent job or portraying life in a motorcycle club.

Devil’s Game was filled with intense sexiness, amazing sexual tension and wonderful humor.  I had quite a few laugh out loud moments as I read and enjoyed it immensely.  Filled with colorful characters, a great story line and strong characters, it’s easy to get lost in this read.  Once I started, it was difficult for me to put my iPhone/iPad down.  Once I finished… I was already craving more.  [by the way, you can pre-order the next book; Reaper’s Stand]  I look forward to reading Picnic’s story.

Devil’s Game by Joanna Wylde gets 5 Naughty stars.

Synopsis:

****Mature Audiences only**** (language, explicit sex, some drug use)

In every life there is always that…one.

Twenty-one year old Laura Sedgwick is a rebel without a cause. Her only plans for life are to make no plans. She revels in her fascination of the unexpected as she navigates her way through mid -1990’s Dallas nightlife. One very bad night brings her face to face with the one man likely to change her mind about…well…everything.

Twenty-three year old Seth Whitaker has every intention of seeing through with his well mapped out life. He is a hard working over-achiever that has no intentions of slowing his pace for anyone. With a fierce determination to not let life pass him by without taking a huge bite, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to the one distraction that could keep him from his best laid plans. Little did he know his determination to keep his life on track would be the very thing to trigger the events that change the course of both their lives.

In this life she had only done one thing right…

…and she was his only chance at salvation.

EXCERPT

All I was feeling was showing in the bathroom mirror on my reddened face. I was having a hard time enjoying it, instead of being terrified. I cupped some water from the faucet and swallowed, willing myself to get it together. I walked into the hall of the long corridor that led back to the rooftop door and found Seth waiting for me, arms crossed over his chest, casually leaning against the wall. I stood on the opposite wall, placing my hands behind my back. I felt a drop of water drip from my bottom lip onto my chest and slide into the V of my dress. I saw his eyes follow it with envy as he spokes his first words to me.

“You are all I think about, and I come here and you look…like this,” he breathed the words to me and I felt them on every inch of my body. I moved to go to him and he made a small gesture that kept me where I was. He still wanted to play and I was game.

“What do you think about?”

“Your laugh, the way your voice is raspy in the morning when you wake up, the arch of your perfect feet, the way your hair falls over your face when you’re on top of me, the way this feels right now and every time I’m with you.”

I pulled my leg through the thigh high slit in my dress propping my heel on the wall behind me and smiled. He cursed as he came toward me in a blur. He stopped himself inches away, placing both hands on the side of my face against the wall.

“Temptress,” he whispered into my ear.

The first words that come to mind as I try to describe this book??….WOW!  It’s been so long since I’ve read a story that truly touched me.  Kate Stewart did an amazing job telling a story of two great characters and their love.  From the moment I began reading the prologue, I was intrigued and couldn’t wait to read on.  The story between Laura and Seth was extremely well written and heartwarming.

The love story amidst the raving times of the 90s was well described.  Kate did a wonderful job depicting the times giving the back drop to this story an eclectic atmosphere and way of the youth in those days and included a playlist that brought back memories of my own and set the mood for Laura and Seth’s love as well as their pain and heartache.

After a time, Laura and Seth finally had their first moment of intimacy and it was very passionate and sweet.   So much so, I could feel what they felt for each other.  As time drew on and their relationship grew, it was truly moving.  There were moments that were so well written, their pain was my pain.  Truly tear jerking moments are provided in this story.  I do not tear easily but this story truly pulled at my heart strings with ease.

I have to say that Room 212 happens to be my first 5 star review in quite some time.
