Header Drunk On You

SACREBLEU!!! *cue dousing myself with cold water*

Yeah, Harper Sloan always gives us smoking hot books, but ladies, this one was OFF THE CHARTS!!! One of the hottest books I have ever read, without a doubt. So considered yourselves warned – Panties may self combust with Mr. Control Freak himself, Shane Kingston! 😉

If you’ve read When I’m With You, Nate and Ember’s story, Shane and Nikki are no strangers to you, as the best friends, respectively, of the couple.

Physically attracted to one another from the moment they met, they never acted on it, first, because they were both in relationships at the time, and then when they were both cheated on and had to break it, because they were not aware the other was single, given their exs couldn’t seem to let them go. Well, Nikki has reach her limit, so why not use their unmeasurable attraction, to kill two birds with one stone, and get rid of the clingers, faking a relationship, while indulging on their bodies craving for one another?! Sounds simple enough, right?! LOL

I miss the connection I’ve deprived myself of. The chemistry between a man and woman. Companionship.

I was completely in control of my life now. Nothing would change that.

Of course, Shane is not that easy to convince – hello, Mr. Control Freak after all –  and tries to prove that to Nikki, and show her all the reasons for which it can be a bad idea. Not, mind you, because he doesn’t want her (oh boy, does he WANT her), but because he knows that nothing is simple about their volcanic connection.

Until the day that changes, I’m going to keep doing what I’ve done since the day she crashed into my life … ignore the twinge inside me that demands I claim her.

“A man like me … I would ruin you and have you begging to be ruined all over again once you’d recovered.”
“Don’t underestimate me, Shane Kingston.”

Oh, that’s right, also because he’s truly a control freak in every way, but specially the bedroom! That’s right, you can call him SIR! Like that man needed to be any hotter! With moves and sex appeal like his, poor Nikki, she stood no chance! 

All I can do now is pray that she meant what she said because, one way or the other, Nikki Clark will be mine.

But Nikki isn’t the only one being surprised, because not in a million years, would Shane have guessed that the sexy, sassy and outspoken Nikki, to be a submissive at heart. Well, lucky for them! Match made in Kinky Heaven! 😉

Until this moment, I never would have guessed I had a docile bone in my body, but there is no doubt Shane dominates every single part of me. 
Body and mind.

“Your body burns for me, Nikki, and all I’ve done is tasted your mouth. You think it matters if we know each other past that to fuck? I barely touch you, and you come alive.”

A we all know, there is never anything simple on a fake relationship arrangement, specially when the couple is burning up the sheets, at the level these two are, so evidently feelings can’t be deleted from the equation, on either part, and that apparent simple agreement is just the start of something SO much deeper. 

With just her hands and mouth, she fucking owns me. 
And I’ll gladly let her.

The last thought I’m aware of floating through my mind is that I’ve just been ruined for any other man. I’m so royally and literally screwed now.

“Not sure I can be your fake anything, mon colibri.”

Just like the last time with him, my mind fogs and I become drunk on the feelings he brings forth with his touch.

Yep, we knew it, and deep down they knew it too, so when the feeling became too much, too strong, and to apparent, there was nothing left but take them to heart and assume all they were to each other. I loved that them didn’t roll around in denial for almost all the book, it took a serious event, and a bit of help from their friends, but upon realization there was no more denial, and it was full steam ahead. And if there was one thing these two had in abundance it was STEAM!

“The first time I felt that hummingbird vibrate against my naked skin, you became mine, and there wasn’t a fucking thing fake about it, Nicole.”

“Do you see how hard I am for you?” 
“Yes, Sir,” she pants.
 “Never, Nicole. I’ve never wanted someone as much as I do you.”

I have to stand out this, Shane was a pack of male deliciousness! Seriously, Harper gave us a irresistible male character with this man, a smoking hot package with unaccountable sex appeal, rocking the bedroom talk with his domineering ways, speaking and saying the sweetest things in the language of love, like we stood any chance, declares and pours his heart out in the most swoon-worthy matter! Even his thoughts were gold I tell you!

When you have the real thing, you can see how cheap the imitations you had in the past hold up in what matters in life.
Almost two months ago, the girl I had a crazy-as-fuck crush on gave me an opening. I didn’t realize she would become my everything when we started our fake relationship. Now, I know there was never anything about it that wasn’t real. She’s meant for me. I was made for her. Two halves of a fucking whole and I know, without her, I’ll never have happiness again.

Sure, the whole sexual/sensual dancing with teasing and grinding for other women was something that put me off, personally, because I’m far too possessive of my male characters and my man to allow that (LOL), but Nikki was perfectly fine with it. She even got off on it, so you know, whatever rocks your boat.

Even if he was stripping it all off like he used to, I think I would still feel the same way. He’s mine and I’m his. The rest is just a show.”

It really was a beautiful and well written story, and I enjoyed and loved reading about these two, though I would have loved even more without a doubt if not for his – and hers – insistence on the whole ‘show’ side, because there was one or two moments in those events I really wish it weren’t featured there. I could live with a stage performance, with zero contact with the audience, but the way it happened, that was just a major turn off for me, and made me mad with Shane, and not for the same reasons Nikki was, LOL. It’s no news how jealous and possessive I am with my Hs! Yes, I’m weird like that. 😉

There was also a couple of character and development inconsistencies, that caught my attention, as well as a too big emphasis on their attraction from the moment they met, but easily discarded that I know it was the right attitude at the time for them, but I didn’t wan’t emphasized so much, and more than once in the present. I don’t want to be reminded more than once they were instantly and constantly attracted to one another, but easily moved on to other people (specially in Shane’s case), and didn’t fight for that connection. Their love story starts in the present, so let’s forget all about those feelings in the past.

Don’t get me wrong, those are just a details, because Shane really was close to perfect, and the way he grovels in the end… WOW! I fell for him and his french silver tongue right then and there! Full on dreamy devotion to Nikki! Sigh…

You have all of me. “There is nothing more important than that, mon amour. Every single inch of me. Inside and out. Body and heart. My control and trust. It’s all yours, Nikki.”

Drunk On You – which is the perfect title, btw – surprised me in the best of ways, and like I said before, you can’t forget something that is easily one of the HOTTEST stories you have ever read! It’s a really high bar that Harper Sloan set here, with these two. I devoured this as fast as starving person faced with a decadent chocolate cake – ok, with Harper Sloan’s I always do, lol – , and I wanted even more of these two, but I’m sure that just like with Ember and Nate, that we got to see quite a lot, and I loved every second, Shane and Nikki will get plenty of air time in his sister’s book, the next Hope Town! Can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“Je t’aime,” she gasps, her whole body shaking as she continues to cry, only now she’s smiling the biggest grin down at me. “I love you,” she repeats. “I love you so much it hurts.” 
“Je t’aime, mon amour. Je t’aime.”

In the end, we both got our exes out of our lives and won the greatest gift of all. 
Each other.

KU - I Want

Excerpt

“Climb gates around here often?” he asked, no censure in his voice. I realized he spoke English as fluently as he spoke Spanish.

               He was clad in navy basketball shorts, a pair of Nike running shoes and he was just sweaty enough for me to realize he’d likely been working out. I swear I was hypnotized by all of his exposed skin, so much so that I could just about remember my own name at that moment. I’d have blamed the fall for my dazed and confused frame of mind but that wasn’t it at all. It was purely because of him—the sexy Spanish-speaking god who’d saved me from certain harm. My eyes trailed along his muscular but lean body hungrily as I catalogued just how ridiculously gorgeous he was. I was hypnotized by his six-pack and the set of V-cut muscles I had an insane urge to trail my fingers over.

               I’d have kept right on staring had he not cleared his throat. I cringed as I came back to reality and realized he’d asked a question I hadn’t retained.

               “Um, huh?” I asked, perfectly clueless.

               “I was asking if you’re a professional gate climber,” he said huskily.

               “No, I—”

               “She’s really fine after a fall from that height?” the officer asked as he came through the gate.

               “She never hit the ground,” my savior said, “since I caught her.”

               The cop looked almost as impressed as I felt. I’d have heaped praised onto the stranger who saved me had I not remembered that I needed to be focused on a more pressing concern.

               “So now that I’m on this side I really need to get my—”
               The officer pinned me with a look that left no doubt that he was in charge. “Miss, please remain silent while I work out what’s going on here.”

               I pursed my lips and tried to contain my annoyance. I knew he was just doing his job but all I cared about was finding Elvis.

               The officer turned back to the Spanish model—I naturally assumed he modeled because he looked like he belonged in sensual looking black and white ads for men’s cologne. You know the kind of ads I’m talking about, right? There’s always a sexy guy giving you the let’s have all the sex look with a set of eyes that are clearly attempting to hypnotize you into buying something.

                He was at least six feet tall and had a head full of thick, dark hair. His face was perfectly proportioned from forehead to chin, and I could find nothing that didn’t appear to be symmetrical. He had a ridiculously sexy closely trimmed beard that I wanted to trace with my fingers and his jaw was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. I turned crimson when my eyes trailed up and met his and I realized he was observing me—which meant he knew I’d been staring at him. Again.

               I bit my lip and tried not to blush as I blinked like an idiot. I was relieved to have a reason to look to the police officer when he cleared his throat to get our attention. “Are you the one who called about the disturbance down the side of the house?” he asked.

               I couldn’t resist the urge to let my eyes wander back to the Spanish god. I knew just enough Spanish to determine that if his looks were rated on the salsa scale he’d be called el más caliente.

               His eyes were on me as he answered the cop. “My brother called, yes.”

               “What’s your name, sir?”

               “Alejandro Cruz.”

               Even his name was sexy. My skin felt hot and prickly under his gaze. Anxious for a reprieve, I looked back to the officer.

               The cop nodded as he took note of it on his pad. “And your brother’s name?”

               “Rafael Cruz.”

               “And you?” the cop asked with a head nod toward me.

               “Kaya Porter.”

               “Can you spell that?”
               “K-a-y-a,” I answered.

               “That’s a weird name,” the officer said as he wrote it down.

               I wasn’t sure if he was being rude or not so I shrugged and said nothing. Alejandro growled something under his breath that I couldn’t understand. A shiver went down my back at the way the words rolled off his tongue. His Spanish accent fascinated me. I’d never been one to care one way or the other about a man’s voice, but his did things to me. I wondered if audio erotica was a thing. If it were, I would pay a subscription fee to hear him talk all day.
               “So were you trying to escape or get in?” the officer asked, ruining my good fantasy about an Alejandro Cruz dirty talk subscription service.

               “I was trying to get in,” I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything I’d said, “I told you—”

               “No, no, she is not the disturbance,” Alejandro interjected. “My brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldn’t have called the police—it’s animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and he’s been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.”

              My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. “Don’t talk about my little buddy like that,” I snapped.

 

Header I Want

QUE CALOR!!! Really, HOT DAMN!!! I feel like I should build a shrine for these Cruz brothers, because they are  whole new league of their own in matters of Best Book Boyfriend. 

Trust me, if you haven’t yet read the first installment, I Don’t, you need to. STAT! I though Mateo was as good as it could get, with all my ideals for main male character more than filled out. Well, seems I shouldn’t have supposed because Alejandro is just as dreamy and delicious! 

It didn’t matter because just like Mateo had said about the night he saw Avelina in the sunroom, I knew what Kaya was to me.

Yep, you got it right, Alejandro will conquer all your hearts and make you swoon, hard!

Alejandro and Kaya meet when she falls on his arms, literally, in her mission to recover her borrowed pet peacock, Elvis. Let’s just say it’s the most of unconventional first meets, but boy did it pack a punch. For both of them!

As much as I wanted to pretend I wasn’t, the truth was that I was beyond attracted to Alejandro Cruz.

Here it start the major swooning moments, given it only took that chance, brief encounter for Alejandro to know that Kaya is everything he’s been looking for – very unsuccessfully we might say,lol – and to know he’ll do anything to prove and show her she’s his one.

“Be careful, man. Your past—” 
“Is just that,” I interrupted. “It’s in the past. I never knew what I was looking for until I met her.”

Once again I was enchanted with how Ella developed this story, considering even though we have this instant-love/lust, their relationship has a wonderful slow built, starting with a good friendship, when both their bodies craved so much more, but Alejandro showed once again how incredible he was, because that is just what Kaya needed, patience, love and care. The insane attraction was always present, he just had to show her all they could be.

Our chemistry was electric, so much so that you could almost see it arcing between. I’d do whatever needed to be done to get her on board with being mine. Already I knew I was hers.

I can’t enhance enough how much I love all these characters, both the main ones and all the secondary ones, even the grumpy Rafael. And Elvis! OMG, he was bloody brilliant, and kudos to Ella for thinking so outside the box with not only in regards of the type of pet (loved all the extra info about this beautiful species I knew very little about), but also for giving him a more important role than I could have dreamt of! 

Alejandro was thankful to Elvis for all his help, and he was spot on! Without Elvis he never would have so easily conquered – or met – his soulmate!

I knew Kaya was different—had known it since the moment I met her. She wasn’t my past—she was my future.

From the first touch of his lips to mine I knew that Alejandro Cruz was in a class all of his own.

They really were PERFECT together! Completed each other in everything, and you could feel they were meant to be and I was rooting for them from the start, and so giddy with excitement right along with Kaya, because, hello? Hot swoon worthy, gorgeous latino! How could we resist?

“I wish there were a way to explain just how much I love your touch on my skin,” he said. “It is everything, Kaya. Everything.”

He was too much and not enough all at once, the most perfect symphony of feeling I’d ever experienced in my life.

Sigh… How good and delicious his this man?! And HOT! Sexy hot! Loyal, devoted, loving and caring, and all wrapped up in the perfect and irresistible package! Ella Foy hit all the right notes with I Want, exactly like she did with I Don’t, giving us this enticingly captivating, sweet and super sexy little read, that left me now craving, longing, even more for Rafael’s story, I need. Specially after that tidbit at the end! Now I’m the one that needs it, and NEED IT, NOW! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Te amo.”
Her eyes widened and her lips opened in surprise. “Is that—did you just tell me that you love me?”
“Sí, mi amor. I love you, Kaya.”

“There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you, Kaya. The instant you fell into my arms I knew you were my soulmate. Everything I’ve done since then has been about keeping you.”

Synopsis
 

Baseball is life, the rest is just details.

Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.

Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.

Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends.  He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.

People think he’s a jerk.

And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.

***

Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.

Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat.  She was just there to do her job.

Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks.  And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.

But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.

What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.

Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent.  Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?

Wrong.

This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.

What else did she get?

The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.

It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.

HOT DAMN!!!These girls are AWESOME!

And yes, I mean both this writing duo and these Coltraine twins!

One Coletrain fleeing is not good, but those two teamed up is bound to be catastrophic.

After reading the first book, Jail House Rock, I thought things couldn’t get much better and funny than Millie and Jake, but boy was I wrong! Tillie, the true outlaw sister, and Nathan – aka Oficcer Trent – were absolutely brilliant. They are the proof that opposites do indeed attract, and even though they’re on opposite sides of the law, nothing can stop their destiny.

There’s only one thing I’ve ever wanted more than being a cop, and currently, she is Sugar Hills’ number-one fugitive.

Officer Nathan Trent, resident all-around good guy. My heaven. My hell.

And if they try, Nate isn’t going to allow it, because one thing he has no doubt since he was a boy, and he took a look at those blue eyes, Tillie Coletrain was HIS. After that he just had to bid his time until she was ready for him to lay his claim. Well, seems that time has come…

Despite knowing how wrong we look for each other from the outside, I know—and have always known—we are a perfect match.

Tillie may try to run, hide or push him away – she has done it countless times, lol – , even though she has wanted him for long to, but considering she thinks she is not good enough for him, she doesn’t even contemplate he can be hers, but Officer Trent is not taking no for an answer, and uses all the guns at his disposal to prove to her, he knows all that she hides behind that sassy and badass persona, and he loves all of her. That, and he’s been waiting all this time for her! Yes, ladies, a virgin H! Just one of the reasons for which I ADORED him soooo much!!! Best Book Boyfriend material right here!

He kisses me like he’s forgotten every mouth but mine. He meets my lips with the kind of fervor that makes me feel like he thinks he’s the lucky one and I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to him. And I’ve never been anyone’s best anything.

Wild Thing was absolute smutty perfection! Über funny and lighthearted, a super sweet and sexy alpha that proves himself BBB material, with some smoking hot moments and a kickass heroine with a huge heart. Indeed a fast paced, addictive little read, that I loved even more than the first book. Can’t wait to see what these ladies will bring us next! Maybe the nutty Hannah and her very own version of SOA, Jax?! LOL <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“For fuck’s sake, Officer Trent. Put the artillery away,” I say, nudging his big bicep with my elbow. “We aren’t at the damn gun show.”

“Always knew my heaven could be found between your thighs,”

Synopsis

After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began eighteen years ago but had a heartbreaking ending.

Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal. 

But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored. 

As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

Header Time in Between

Well, seems I’m yet again the odd woman out, since most of my friends seemed to love this one, but, Oh man, I can’t believe how disappointed I am right now….

This is one of my fav KA series, and I had such high expectations for The Time in Between from the moment it was announced, but Coert and Cady’s just let me down in a big way.

Coert turned out to be a major asshole, yes, KA’s Hs, always have some jerk moments, but this one… Lord, I just couldn’t forgive him, specially because of his mean, awful treatment of the h, and it last for so long, almost till 50%! And to top then (SPOILER ALERT) he finally goes and admits their break up and separation was mostly his fault, and confesses he never stopped loving her, which didn’t stop him from dating and dating after, and even getting engaged, with no mind of Cady’s feeling, even thinking the she was keeping tabs on him, arghhhh…(SPOILER END) and bam, does 180 and NO GROVELLING!!!! And here is the second part of my huge disappointment, Candy, oh, Cady…. One of the weakest and more doormat female character I have ever read! 🙁 This woman, really was an emotional punching bad, over, and over, since the beginning, and by everyone (yes, even her longing actual family, admit to being horrible in the start and she taking it). Yes, it’s good to have a forgiving nature, at least that’s what I’m told- I’m personally a grudgeful bitch, no news here, lol, and maybe why it bother me that much – but Cady was the very definition of sacrificial lamb! She took it, and took it, and even after they made up, she just pretended like there was no 18 year separation and that still everything was HER fault, or that it was to forget… Good God, woman!
Anyway, rant is over, and I have to point out, as usual I was involved with the writing, though we still get a lot of repeated KA maneirisms, but it was an interesting storyline, but I couldn’t get past these MCs personalities and characterization.
Of course what ended up saving, and raising this rating from a negative one was that PERFECT Epilogue! Lordy, that beautiful ending, was so emotional, so HEA in every way, and tied up the series with the perfect bow, that almost made me forget the disappointment with rest of the story, almost…. Sigh…

About the Author

Kristin Ashley - headshot

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

Nothing’s changed.

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

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

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

eXtortion_mock1b
Synopsis

 

A job is just a job, right? Just because a man gets paid to do bad things, doesn’t necessarily make him a bad person. At least that what he’s been telling himself these past few years. He’s just a man who enjoys the perks of the job: money, travel, women, and lots of cash. It doesn’t come without cost, and the years of deception have taken its toll. He’s done. Almost.

One final job. One final conquest. One last heartbreak until he’s free of The Company and their hold over him.

Little does he know, he’s about to face the toughest job of his life. Follow Ethan on his titillating path of self-actualization and turmoil in J. Derek Teevan’s debut novel eXtortion.

Excerpt

A sick excitement courses through me when Luke picks up his phone and dials the number on the contract to confirm that I’ll take the assignment. It’s almost like the first day of school nerves all over again, only this time around you’re getting paid to seduce your teacher.

If she takes the bait and sleeps with me, she’s the one who failed the test. I’m just the asshole who’s administering it. Unfortunately for her, I’ve never failed. In my time at The Company, I have a success rate of 100%. Yeah, I’m the dick who has successfully ensured that twelve women were divorced and didn’t receive a penny of their husband’s money. It took time, cultivating a relationship, dangling the carrot, or playing a cat-and-mouse game. Looks like Dr. Samantha Dawson is going to be lucky number thirteen.

Or unlucky, in her case.

“Okay, you’re good to go. They’ll send you the complete file by courier tomorrow, and your training day starts on Monday, Officer Hoyt. You got three days, so suit-up. Or I guess in your case, get those scrubs ready.”

Luke can never miss a chance to bring up a movie reference with that other Ethan guy. I’ve grown so used to them I’m not even sure if they register in my brain anymore. My brain stays with the subject at hand. “Wow, that was fast. We usually have more time to study the target before the meeting. What’s the deal?”

He simply shrugs and gives me an impassive stare. “Time is money, buddy, and this guy, the client, has to be pulling some serious strings for you. Your case and internship at the hospital both start Monday. Damn, talk about good timing. It’s like he was waiting for someone from The Company to graduate medical school to make this happen. Must be one miserable son-of-a-bitch.”

I run a hand over my face. Damn, I almost wonder what the good doctor has done to make her husband want to toss her to the curb. But it’s best left to remain uninvolved. It doesn’t matter what she’s done or not done. It only matters that I do my job.

Header Extortion

What a DEBUT! Really, talk about starting with a BANG!!!

J. Derek Teevan had indeed a fantastic beginning for what I’m sure it’s going to be a kickass career in this Erotic romance universe. 

Ethan, our main male character has one very unorthodox – and even cringe worthy, for yours truly – side job: luring and sleeping with married women in order for their POS to be able to divorce them and maintain all their fortune. Yep, you read it correctly, Ethan was basically a step or hundred lower than the common gigolo. A handsome, captivating and irresistible one, but still a prostitute. 

These women were married and “off limits” and my job was to break through all those boundaries and make them mine, if even only for a moment. It was an excitement that left me the moment my cum did.

Of course, as we well know, the world is not only black and white, and Ethan is well aware of the devastating consequences of what he does, and now that he ended Medical school – the reason for which he entered this business, since he was drowning in debt – and can stomach carrying on destroying women lives.

I wasn’t a bad person, I was just doing this to survive, and once I was hrough medical school, I would be saving lives, not ruining them.

“Well… what’s one more?” The words leave my mouth, and I’m wondering how many lives will I have to save until I can feel some sort of redemption. Will I ever feel that, redemption?

All good intentions flew to hell when one last IRRESISTIBLE, in more ways then one is sent his way, and one look at Samantha, and he knew this target was unlike any other before.

I’ve never felt the way I do towards a woman like this, I’ve never wanted a woman like this before.

Samantha doesn’t remember anymore what meant to be happy. She knows her marriage failed, even with all her effort to regain what she thought they once had – which was never real considering her disgusting cheating pig of a husband – and she has been sinking lower and lower in this immense loneliness and putting on a cold facade for the world around her, so when one of her assigned pediatric ER interns, proves himself attentive, charming, caring and brilliant, both to her and with their little patients and their parents, and their insane chemistry is palpable, lets just say it will take all her strength to resist him. Not that he was aggressive or very actively trying, but it was impossible to deny all the desire, and the emotion that she saw in his eyes.

Thoughts of her are all-consuming, and if I don’t fuck her soon, I’m going to explode.

I will not reveal anymore, because the best in this smutty novella, is the plot development, and the absolutely enticing way in which it unfolds, and how Ethan and Sam’s initial magnetism turns into so much more, and all the sizzling sex scenes in between! 

I need to be near her; her presence is intoxicating to me. She’s my drug, and I never want to detox.

I devoured it in one sitting, and I can honestly say that, apart from that detailed sex scene with OW in the prologue, which I found absolutely unnecessary for the plot, given there was no real justification behind it, given there is no trace of OW drama in the remainder of the book – which I loved – and some very minor personal preferences, eXtortion, proved to be an incredibly hot, super sexy and clever smutty read, where a refreshing plot and captivating writing will no doubt bring major success to the author. I love the author’s wife, Tessa Teevan’s, books, and I’m a huge fan of hers, so I will say, that she better watch out (just kidding, lol) because Derek may give her a run for her money, with a debut like this! That is one TALENTED household! Now I have a new author added to my auto-read list and can’t wait to see what delicious read he’ll give us next!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Nothing in my life has ever felt more right, more perfect than this, being with her, in her.

Synopsis

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone…

Police academy cadet Charlie Burns can’t believe his luck when the gorgeous blonde he meets in a bar murmurs those magic words: “Nothing serious, ’kay?” Mind-blowing, no-strings sex with Ever Carmichael—it’s the holy grail of hookups for a guy who’s too busy following in his law enforcement family’s footsteps to think about getting serious. Charlie’s all about casual…that is, until Ever calls it quits and his world tilts on its axis.

Ever knows that when you control the relationship game, you can’t get played. But for the first time, she wants more than short-term satisfaction. Step one: end her fling with commitment-phobic Charlie. Step two: sacrifice herself to the ruthless NYC dating scene. Yet everywhere she turns, there’s Charlie, being his ridiculously charming self. No online match or blind date compares to the criminally hot cop-in-training, but they’re over. Aren’t they?

If love is a four-letter-word, why does the idea of Ever seeing someone else tie Charlie up in knots?  Now he’s desperate to win her back…and a little date sabotage never hurt anyone, right?

Header Disorderly Conduct

 

Woohoo! A brand new series from Tessa Bailey!

Yes, I couldn’t have been more excited when TB announced this upcoming series, and I may have screamed like a little girl when I got this book in my e-reader, after all there isn’t one story by her that I don’t devour and love in any way, and Disorderly Conduct was no exception!

Charlie and Ever’s story – as well as the whole series, I suspect – has a bit of different feel from Tessa’s other series, and this is one of the things that most captivates in her books (ok, ok, the dirties talkers may have something to do with it too, lol). Part of the novelty I’m sure it’s not only the setting, hello, Police Academy aka Hottie Central, But also the age range, since the main characters are in their early twenties, so Tessa kickass as usual, and gave them a very youthful and realistically immature actions at time, but I’ll not spoil more on that field, you should experience all of the feels when reading this, because believe me, you HAVE to read this!

Charlie and Ever are immediately drawn to one another, literally, like to magnets. They set eyes on the other across a crowded bar and BAM! Instant explosion! Charlie might as well be drooling, actually I think he might have been, if the tightness in his pants was any indication, lol!  As he said himself, Ever was every man’s wet dream come true…

It’s really working for me, because her legs are two sticks of dynamite and I’m more than willing to die in the explosion.

This girl is dynamite, wrapped in Please Santa, I’ve Been a Good Boy.

But worry not, because that reaction was not one sided! Ever was just as raptured by Charlie as he was by her! After all who can resist an handsome future officer, with a sparkle in his eye, a wickedly hot body that has you craving for more and the filthiest of mouths?!

There’s only one Charlie Burns. Intense, charming, sexy and capable, all at once.

Charlie Burns: a walking, talking reminder to do your Kegels.

Oh yes, they had no chance, and everything was going smoothly with their no-string attached relationship. The ‘no-feellings, just sex’ was exactly what they agreed upon from the start. And each of them had some valid reasons to not want any kind of commitment.

My whole life, my mother has impressed on me that there are no exceptions when it comes to men. Relationships don’t last, because men’s affections are fleeting. 
When we’re in control of the game, we can’t get played.

 

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all about commitment. Right now, though, my entire reserve of commitment juice is being poured into becoming a cop.

So yes, as we well know, that was set to implode in some way or another, specially given their insane connection, so when a event happens in Ever’s life, – not spoiling what, you’ll have to find out for yourselves – she is basically forced to give up Charlie, since he’s very clear that he doesn’t want anything more than sex, and actively look for someone she can share a future with. And that is where everything goes to hell, because one thing is certain, for Charlie what they have is perfect, now it’s just a matter of making Ever change her mind. You can imagine how well that’s going to go, LOL! One thing is certain, he has no doubt what Ever is, and that is HIS!

Plus . . . they don’t need to know a damn thing about Ever. She’s mine. I’m hers. We’re ours. 
Unofficially, of course.

Of course we couldn’t have a new Tessa Bailey, the Queen of Dirty Talk, without some scorchingly hot sex scenes, and some seriously panty melting filthy talk, and oh boy, did Charlie fit the bill, perfectly!!! Consider yourself warned! Cold shower may be required!

“Tilt your fucking hips and spread your thighs, Ever.” He snaps my thong against the back of my thigh. “I skipped my lunch break for this, so give me something to eat.”

Yes, Charlie was set for disaster from the start, with his devious schemes, and not seeing what was right in from of him all along, which I wish it hadn’t taken him so freaking long, and only realize it after a major event, though believable, I didn’t want it so far along in the book, even I thought it was taking to freaking long to realize what they had. But his past and his families mentality was far to ingrained to allow him to open his eyes. Talk about living in denial!

A badge is something you earn and keep. It doesn’t disappear when things get rough—no, it shines brighter. It’s a sure thing. A lasting thing.

So, given the major mess that he got himself into, of course a major groveling was needed, and that is where Tessa excels once again! This woman sure knows how to make her heroes beg for mercy! And I loved every second of it!!!

“If you say, fuck me, Charlie, I will drop whatever I’m doing. I will get between those legs if I have to kill, steal or sacrifice to get there. And you’ll be a sweating, moaning, crying tangle of sex in the sheets by the time it’s over. I know you don’t doubt me, because I’ve done it. I’ve done it.”

“I’ve been dying for you. Dying. You don’t know what it’s been like.” 
“Yes, I do.”

The Academy started with a bang, and Disorderly Conduct proved to be the perfect visit card for what I’m sure is another all time Fav series by Tessa Bailey! Charlie and Ever’s story was a amazing and enrapturing tale, fresh and super sexy, will get you hooked with this gang from the start, and after that little teaser by the end of the book, I bet Jack’s story is going to be just as delicious and unpredictable! I can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“I’ve been writing my name on every part of you. Knew it and couldn’t stop it. Couldn’t help it since day one. Mine, mine, mine.”

I’m in love with you. I love you so much. And you can depend on that. You can depend on me for the rest of your life. I won’t let you go for anything.

I should have known then we were forever. You tasted like forever.

Synopsis
 

Tobias knows that women are a lot of trouble, and one in particular is more trouble than most. Yet even with the knowledge that she’s a pain in the ass, he doesn’t stop himself from doing the one thing he knows that he shouldn’t do—fall in love with her.
It’s supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out.
What Tobias isn’t supposed to do is fall for the woman he’s supposed to rescue. But he can’t help being intrigued–and amused–by the defiance rolling off Audrey every time he so much as speaks to her. This fascination only intensifies with every single word from her delectable mouth.

***

It’s been six years since her assault, yet it feels like it happened just yesterday. Audrey’s sick and tired of feeling so useless. She’s had enough of being scared, she’s doesn’t want to be all alone for the rest of her life. All of that boils down to a woman who’s had enough of not doing anything to reclaim her life.
She’s at a loss as to how to move on, and every attempt she makes results in failure. Just when she’s ready to quit, a sexy biker is there to push her out of her comfort zone.
Under Tobias’ patient guidance, Audrey slowly makes her way back to herself. She lands a job that she adores, and she thinks she’s finally found her place in this world. Most surprisingly, though, she finds herself falling in love with a man that honestly scares her to death.
Just when she vows to take that final step that’ll put her past in her past forever, the life she wants to live is yanked away. Leaving her with nothing to pick up the pieces.

Header For the Love of Beard

4.5 ‘Healing Hearts’ Stars

Hot damn! Lani Lynn Vale did it again, and I’m equal parts sad to see my LLV’s FAV series go (though we know we’ll get more at some point from the Dixie Wardens Rejects, yay) and so, so very happy, because For The Love of Beard, Tobias and Audrey story, really was the PERFECT conclusion for the series. A story of rebirth and healing at its very best, with Toby stealing my heart with the way he cherished and loved Audrey from their very first encounter! I Adored these two, their tale and all the feelings they created, so very much!

As we know from Beard Up – if you haven’t yet read this amazing story, you NEED to! – Tobias was sent to save and protect Audrey from a possible and terrible fate, what he hadn’t counted was to fall in love at the spot.

I was that annoying man who followed her around like a goddamned puppy.

 

It was the longest two days I’d ever experienced. 
On the plus side, we got all her crap packed. The downside? I lost my heart.

Audrey, as we LLV’s fans know, is Tunnel’s sister, and was horribly sexually assaulted six years prior – Life To My Flight – and has sense retracted on to herself, just revealing a snappy and sassy persona, and kidding her true self, and protecting her heart behind steel walls.

Fully acknowledging all this and the rough path that laid ahead for him, Tobias took an amazing way to approach Audrey’s prickly demeanor, showing how much he understood and cared for her beyond everything else. 

On the outside, I may look undamaged. But if it was possible to see to the heart of a person, mine would look torn, mangled and bruised.

Toby really was the perfect match for her in every way, and I couldn’t have pictured a better person to understand all that Audrey had been trough and its subsequent damaged. After all broken souls and damaged hearts is something his family is well versed in. Something that luckily Lani will allow us to explore in her upcoming new series, Hail Raisers.

Through a lot of patience, true love and care, Audrey’s soul slowly started to heal, and Toby’s heart, to his own surprise, gained a new life, in his love for her. They truly healed one another.

All of it was gone, and in its place was Audrey. 
She surrounded me, filled my heart, and I never wanted her to leave.

And when Audrey couldn’t resist the handsome, tattooed and bearded biker, that was a standing feature in her life, anymore, and gave in to their attraction, and let go, it was everything and more that Toby could have wished for, so much more. It was explosive! 

He plundered my mouth, his tongue tangling with my own, as he claimed me. 
And it was a claiming. Everything in that kiss told me exactly what I needed to know.
I was his. Now. Tomorrow, and next week. He wanted me, and I had to either accept it, or fight.

Once that line was crossed there was no stopping them, and oh boy, were they HOT!!! Prepare yourself, because this book has the steamiest sex scenes in any of Lani Lynn Vale’s book! *cue fanning myself*

Until then, I’m going to be the best roommate you’ve ever had.” 
“A roommate with benefits?”  She started to chuckle. “Will you sneak into my room at night and have your dirty way with me, Mr. Dixie Warden Reject?” 
I grinned widely. “Yeah, but you won’t be leaving my bed after we’re done.” 
“Why is that?” I turned my serious eyes back to the road, too. 
“Because you won’t be able to feel your legs until morning.”

And their banter! It was so incredible awesome and hilarious at times! I’ll say it again, and again, truly PERFECT MATCH!

I was more than aware of the consequences. I’ve attended nine police officer funerals in my years as a cop. I knew better than she did the sacrifices we had to make each day, and the possibility of putting that shield on over our hearts one day, but not the next.

As per LLV usual we have all those suspenseful, hilarious, steamy and emotional moments, as well as a touching sensibilization for the hard and dangerous reality that is working in Law Enforcement. Lani’s main characters, are, imo, so incredibly enticing for the realism in which she portraits them, and Tobias and Audrey are the perfect example of it. I loved them beyond words, and I’m said to see these Rejects go, but I’m sure this isn’t the last of we’ll see of them. Now, counting down the days until LLV’s new series and their first installments, Pitch Please and Hail No! Lani’s really spoils us rotten, and I couldn’t love her more for it! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

There were a lot of people in love in the world, but only the ones who truly felt it the deepest, and were willing to fight for that love, were the ones that stayed together.

“I love you, Audrey Morrison, soon-to-be Hail.” I squeezed his neck tighter. “I love you right back, Tobias Hail.

Synopsis

Anya is getting ready to go to college, but she’s sad to leave her bodyguard behind. Sasha has been everything to her over the year, even more than he knows. She’s fantasized about all the ways he could do more than just protect her, and leaving him is making her heart ache. What she doesn’t know is he’s got his own plans, and they include more than she could have possibly dreamed of.

Sasha is the big Russian bodyguard everyone stays clear of. He’s intimidating, rough, and knows how to kill. But there’s a soft spot inside him, and it’s name is Anya. He’s made a promise to her father and to himself that he won’t touch her until he’s fulfilled his duty. But that time is almost up, and her innocence is free to claim.

Warning: We know how our readers love it dirty with a side of sweet so we’ve stolen a book from Jessa Kane, and added our own little sparkle to it. It’s the filthiest ever, so bring a spoon. You guys are going to eat it up.

Holy mother of smutty Orgasms! This was absolutely filthy!!!
And I loved every single second of it! How could I not with two of my fav and dirtiest smutty authors pulling all their kinky nature to light and giving us this delicious and warning required, little smutty gem?! Yep, they managed to surpass themselves in the smutty and kinky scale! Not for the faint of heart, because the temperature is guaranteed to rise! You better have your birth control in check, or your fav BoB fully charged, lol! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“You were mine to breed the day we locked eyes. You knew this, did you not?” Sweat breaks out on his upper lip, his big, tattooed chest heaving, expanding. “Innocent or not, your body knew to tempt Uncle Sasha and no one else. You knew you’d make me a daddy one day in more ways than one.”
