📚Excerpt & Review: SINNER by Sierra Simone

Overall: 5/5
Naughty Factor: 5/5
POV: His/1st person

“I’m not going to take off your underwear. I’m going peel this silk off you like the skin of a fruit, and then I’m going to eat you. I’m going to suck on you like a plum. I’m going to unwrap you like a Christmas present and then you’ll see what a happy boy I am.”

I never expected to have a religious experience while reading a romance novel…but this story was EVERYTHING! There was so much depth to the story and these characters- and I felt so much from every moment.

Perhaps I’d been programmed at birth only to want this one person, and there’s this tiny thing in my mind—not a thought, not even the seed of a thought, but like the frozen root of some dormant plant that might one day years from now drop a seed that can become a full-blown thought—that I can almost remember feeling this way about God once upon a time. That years ago, there used to be a Sean Bell that loved without restraint and reluctance and fear. She reminds me.

I loved Tyler and Poppy’s story in Priest and Midnight Mass and didn’t expect that a more original, thought provoking story could follow those two books…I was so wrong. Sinner touched on so many social issues as well as continued with the religious theme that fits the Bell family perfectly.

It never works. And it’s a stinging thing to note that even as I try my hardest, even as I throw every reason I ever hated God or despised the Church at her, I can’t crack her faith the way her love cracks me. I can’t carve away her connection with God the same way she’s carved a gap into my heart that she refuses to fill.

Kindle | Paperback | Audible


“All these bruises,” Smoke muses. “And not one of them caused by me.” He trails a hand up my arms and down my flat stomach. “Pity, but I still have time to leave my mark on you yet.”

My entire body stiffens. I’m as rigid as a corpse.

Smoke chuckles and I’m glad I’m facing away because his laugh is pure torture, causing his erection to vibrate against my folds which are aching for more contact.

“You will be punished, hellion. You can be sure of that.”

I look over my shoulder and meet his dark eyes which darken even further as his pupils dilate. His lingering gaze rakes me over from my feet to my breasts and back down to the space between my thighs. He licks his full bottom lip.

My stomach flips. My will to fight him off doesn’t waiver, but my body isn’t getting the message. My core clenches again. I turn back around to face the tile, digging my teeth into my lower lip until I taste my own blood.

His chest presses against my back, and his hardness pulses between my legs, rubbing against my inner thighs. He squirts some shampoo in his hand, working it into my hair. He tilts my head back and rinses my hair then slides his slick and soapy hand down my body. Continue reading Up In Smoke (A King Series Novel) by T.M. Frazier

“All these bruises,” Smoke muses. “And not one of them caused by me.” He trails a hand up my arms and down my flat stomach. “Pity, but I still have time to leave my mark on you yet.”

My entire body stiffens. I’m as rigid as a corpse.

Smoke chuckles and I’m glad I’m facing away because his laugh is pure torture, causing his erection to vibrate against my folds which are aching for more contact.

“You will be punished, hellion. You can be sure of that.”

I look over my shoulder and meet his dark eyes which darken even further as his pupils dilate. His lingering gaze rakes me over from my feet to my breasts and back down to the space between my thighs. He licks his full bottom lip.

My stomach flips. My will to fight him off doesn’t waiver, but my body isn’t getting the message. My core clenches again. I turn back around to face the tile, digging my teeth into my lower lip until I taste my own blood.

His chest presses against my back, and his hardness pulses between my legs, rubbing against my inner thighs. He squirts some shampoo in his hand, working it into my hair. He tilts my head back and rinses my hair then slides his slick and soapy hand down my body.

I’m breathing rapidly now. Short quick breaths I can’t control. There’s a deep rumble in his throat. His hand travels lower and lower on my stomach until it’s between my legs. He’s working his thumb over my swollen nub, sending sparks of need, pangs of pleasure, and a wave of self-hatred, surging within my battered body and bruised soul.

“What…what are you doing?” I ask, seeing flashes of white hot lust behind my closed eyes.

“More questions…” his voice a hearty amused rasp. His fingers circle my clit while he continues to rock his hard cock between my legs. The pressure building is so strong it borders on painful.

Tears leak from my eyes. I’m so fucking mad at myself for being turned on. For Smoke being right. I’m so wet. He feels it. There’s no way he can’t feel it.

He leans in close. I’m stone still except for the tremors gripping my body. He licks the tear off my cheek and groans. He dips the tip of his finger inside of me and I tighten around the intrusion. It’s a foreign sensation. Strange. It feels both wrong and right. Pleasurable and painful. “Your tight little pussy is weeping too. I wonder if its tears taste the same.”

I look over my shoulder as he withdraws his finger and sucks it into his mouth. He groans. “Fear or desire. They both taste real fuckin’ good to me.”

He places his hand back between my legs. When I try to squeeze my thighs together to keep him out he parts them with his knee on a grunt and begins circling my clit again. This time harder. Faster.

I’m staying as still as I can, but when I feel something begin to happen inside my body. The sparks he ignited within me are all crashing together. I can’t hold back. My face scrunches as I try to fight the orgasm fighting its way out, but it’s no use. I can’t fight it. It’s too fucking strong. I’m so fucking close.

I arch my back without thinking, pressing my ass against him, begging for more. For what I need to push me over the edge.

Smoke hisses. “Oh, what I could do to this beautiful little pussy.”

The pleasure builds and builds as he strokes me harder. Faster. I’m about to come all over his fingers when the feeling is lost.

I spin around.

Smoke is gone.

I can’t see through the steam so I shut off the spray and wipe the water from my eyes only to see Smoke toweling off in front of the sink on the other side of the bathroom.

The only proof I have of what just happened between us was real is his cock. Erect. Thick. Huge. The purplish swollen head bobs against his abs, jutting out over the top of the towel he wraps around his waist.

“What…what just happened?” I stammer, leaning back against the wall for support.

Smoke steps forward, and when I go to jerk back, he reaches out and pinches my nipple painfully hard. I yelp and leap back, slipping on the tile, falling on my ass, taking the shower curtain down with me.

Smoke rips the curtain off my head and glares down at me with a triumphant grin on his evil beautiful face. “What just happened was called punishment and you got off easy. Next time I’ll split that tight pussy in two with my fucking cock.”

He goes to leave but stops. “You want pain?” he asks. “I’ll give it to you. You want pleasure? Now that’s something you’re gonna have to earn.”

He leaves, slamming the door behind him.

I release a shaky exhale.

I’d hoped the rest of my time with Smoke would be tolerable, but there’s no fucking way that’s going to happen. Not now. Not with my skin crawling with need. I’m losing my mind. About where I am. About what this is all about. About this beautiful horrible evil man.

I feel like I’ve already been split in two.

What Smoke is doing to me is far more than punishment.

It’s  pure fucking torture.

Title: A Cruel Kind of Beautiful
Author: Michelle Hazen

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Page Count: 344

Synopsis:

If you can’t get to the Big O, can you get to the happily ever after? 

Jera McKnight loves music, swoons for hot guys, but sucks at sex. Jacob Tate is her perfect storm: a pun-loving nude model with a heart as big as his record collection.

When a newspaper-delivery accident lands him in her living room, he’s almost tempting enough to make her forget she’s never been able to please a man—in bed or out of it. Sure, he laughs at her obscure jokes, and he’ll even accept a PG-rating if it means he gets time with her, but he’s also hiding something. And it has everything to do with the off-limits room in his apartment.

Jera pours all her confusion and longing into her drum kit, which pays off when her band lands the record deal of their dreams. Except just like Jacob, it might be too good to come without a catch.

She doesn’t know if her music is good enough to attract a better contract, or if she’s enough to tempt a man like Jacob to give up his secrets, even if they could fix her problems between the sheets. But if this rocker girl is too afraid to bet on herself, she might just end up playing to an empty house.

NMST 5-STAR REVIEW

A CRUEL KIND OF BEAUTIFUL Excerpt
Copyright © 2017 Michelle Hazen

“If this is about sex, here’s the thing: I like sex. Every kind of sex. And I can make it unbelievably good for you.” He says it without a hint of a blush, and no trace of arrogance. The temperature of my skin rockets up.

I swallow to combat my suddenly dry mouth. I really, really want to roll him on top of me and forget that no matter how hot he makes me, I’ll be left panting and straining and unfulfilled at the end.

I want to pretend I don’t know better.

“This isn’t a romance novel,” I tell Jacob. “It doesn’t work like that. You can’t just put on some Barry Manilow and call it making love, and be so gentle with me that my head explodes into a rain of fireworks. I tried all that, and it sucked.”

I push up to sitting, my eyes darting away from him as I rub one hand down my opposite arm. I hate how ugly it makes me feel to talk about this stuff.

“No matter how excited I get, I can’t finish. My ex tried to help me get over it, and it only made the whole thing worse for both of us.”

“Look, I get that. I listened to that shitty voicemail he left you. But it doesn’t have to go that way, Jera. Did you know that seventy-five percent of women have trouble experiencing orgasm through vaginal sex? Only fifteen percent of women have the same trouble once additional stimulation is provided.” He sits up too. “Have you tried toys? Even just a little booster like a vibrating cock ring? What about fetishes?”

I blink, at a loss.

“Fetishes can be really unique, and they are often biologically based,” he explains. “Not linked to trauma or anything weird. They’re incredibly powerful. You could have an insane gummy bear fetish or something and just have no idea that’s what you need to get excited. Have you read much erotica?”

My cheeks burn and if my mouth isn’t hanging open, it’s only because I’m too shocked to move.

“I might have done some research,” he admits.

“Oh really? I thought I accidentally hit play on my Sexual Dysfunction for Dummies audiobook. How are you not blushing right now?”

“I like talking about sex.” He shrugs. “And it’s important to you. Of course I want to know as much as I can. Besides, I’m an engineering major. Taking things apart and figuring out how they work is kind of what we do.”

That pulls a reluctant smile from me, because that is insanely nerdy but also sweet, and more than a little embarrassing. I don’t even want to see all the ways I’ve besmirched his browser history.

Publisher: Forever – Grand Central Publishing
Series: Firefly Lake

She has a million reasons to leave. Can he give her the one she needs to stay?

Cat McGuire’s return to Firefly Lake is turning into much more than she bargained for. Sure, she missed the crisp pine-scented air and the comfort of having her family around her. But being home makes her feel less like the successful single mom she is–and more like the awkward teen who never fit in. It doesn’t help that hockey-pro Luc Simard is back in town, too. Luc was her childhood crush, the hometown hero who never noticed her, and yet somehow he still makes her heart skip a beat.

Luc’s homecoming has been bittersweet. He’s lost his wife and his career, but there’s no better place to start over than Firefly Lake. Coaching the local kids’ hockey team makes him feel alive again, and he thinks his life is complete–until Cat arrives. The shy girl he always wanted to protect is now the gorgeous woman who’s stealing his heart and making him believe in second chances. But how can he convince Cat that Firefly Lake is where she truly belongs?

Praise for Back Home at Firefly Lake:

“When these two broken souls come together, magic happens.” – Publishers Weekly

“Back Home at Firefly Lake is a charming small-town, second-chance story. With well-written and relatable characters, readers both new and old to the series will enjoy it.” – Harlequin Junkie

EXCERPT

Luc’s heart squeezed. [Cat] was embarrassed to ask her family for help, like he’d have been embarrassed asking his. Except, that would never be an issue because he had more money than he could spend in one lifetime. Money to finance the creamery expansion his dad had talked about for years, and to send his folks on that cruise they’d hankered after but could never afford because of the cost of raising four kids and putting most of them through college. Money for everything except what mattered most—taking care of his wife and their child like he’d planned.

“Pay for the hockey registration when your grant comes through.” He tried to smile. “I know you’re good for it.”

“Thanks.” Cat’s voice cracked and she took one hand away from her bag to rub it across her face. “Hockey means everything to Amy. I want her to be able to play, but she’s growing so fast right now.”

“Hockey’s an expensive sport.” He slid an arm around her shoulders and gave her a little squeeze. The same kind of friendly squeeze he’d given her all those times back in high school when she’d saved his butt in chemistry. Before today, however, his fingers had never tingled when he’d touched Cat. His body had never heated, either.

Cat started and pulled away at the same instant he did. “Hockey can be a dangerous sport too, and now Amy will be playing with boys. She hasn’t played with boys since she was seven. She could get hurt.

Like he had, hurt so bad it had ended his career. “Amy’s playing minor hockey. At her age, there is a rule about no body checking.” He tried to make his tone reassuring. “I promise I’ll keep a close eye on her.” It was his job as her coach, and he’d do the same for any kid. It had nothing to do with the strange and unexpected attraction he all of a sudden had for this woman he’d known his whole life, who he’d never really looked at until today.

A woman who wasn’t Maggie. Luc’s stomach clenched in a tangled lump of guilt and grief, tied tight with a slippery ribbon of disloyalty. Maggie was never coming back, but that didn’t mean Luc could forget her. Or that he wanted to.

📚 Review: The Dark Romeo Trilogy by Sienna Blake [TWO #Giveaways ending soon]

THE DARK ROMEO SERIES IS NOW COMPLETE!!Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this is a retelling for mature audiences.
Don’t enter the Underworld if you’re scared of the dark.

Most are familiar with the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet. It’s one of the most tragic love stories every written. True soulmates, that felt an instant connection that bound them heart and soul only to be ripped apart by their families because of a long time feud that had been around long before they were. Many authors retell this story with their own unique spin on the characters and story line and what Sienna Blake put down on paper was one of the best versions I’ve come across.

Julianna Capulet is an officer of the law, daughter to the Chief of Police and has lived her life striving to follow in her father’s footsteps and make him proud. Roman Tyrell is the reluctant heir to the Tyrell empire. Born into a family that has controlled Verona’s underground for years. Raised by a father with a heavy hand, all he’s ever wanted was to get away and have nothing to do with any of it.

For Jules and Roman, one night together changed their fates and bound them forever.

The Dark Romeo Trilogy follows their story through the insane betrayals, questions in loyalties and tested love.  This trilogy was a perfect blend of old and new, a classic with a modern twist, the light and the dark. Sienna Blake wrote the story in a way that felt so familiar yet completely different all at the same time. Even as I read through the conclusion, I riveted with how the story unfolded and absolutely blown away. I highly recommend the story as it’s the best I’ve read from this author, so far. A definite must have for you reading collection.

📚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.

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.

ABOUT THE BOOK
ALFA Private Investigations is a spin-off of the Men of Inked series, but can be read separately.
**Includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas**

There’s only one thing worse than dating a friend’s sister sleeping with his mother.
Fran DeLuca’s known for her bossy, overbearing personality almost as much as for her love of nylon tracksuits. But when someone runs off with fifty thousand dollars, she becomes involved in an ALFA investigation and catches the eye of silver fox biker, Bear.
Bear North, ALFA’s resident bad boy, has never thought of Fran as anything more than his buddy’s mom. When she trades in her elastic pants and orthopedic tennis shoes for a pair of skintight jeans and high heels, he takes notice of the fifty-something MILF.
When the money trail leads closer to Fran than expected, Bear takes charge of the investigation and will do anything to protect her. Can Bear track a thief, claim Fran, and keep Morgan DeLuca in the dark long enough to solve the case?

Wicked Impulse is book 3 in the ALFA PI series and includes a BONUS novella – Men of Inked Christmas.

divider line review logo★★★★
DAMN!! Bear and Fran proved that age is just a number. They could give the younger peeps a run for their money. They were fricking smokin hot!!!

Bear lost his only love years ago and spends his days working at ALFA PI and nights with random women. He has a past and a reputation that follows him, so when he volunteers to help their current investigation by questioning Morgan’s mother, Fran… Morgan is none too happy. He doesn’t want the man anywhere near his mom and warns him at every turn. Though Bear assures him that all will be on the up and up, he can’t get rid of the fact that deep down, he’s always been curious what Fran hid beneath her daily tracksuits.

Bear and Fran showed me that at their age, they could go at it just as much and as fiercely as the young couples I read about. Bear had serious stamina and beneath the grandma style Fran hid behind, she was a sex kitten with an insatiable drive that Bear was all to willing to assist her with.

They were adorable for a mature couple and just as sexy as any other Hero and heroine I’ve come across. Their story was a great addition to the ALFA PI series and I look forward to so much more. Especially the way it left off.

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.

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.
