Synopsis

Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.

As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

Header Lure of Oblivion

4.25 ‘She’s everything’ Stars

I can honestly say Suzanne Wright is my favorite PNR author, and every time one of her releases is imminent I get giddy with excitement, and this was no exception! 

Lure of Oblivion, Zander and Gwen’s story is the third of The Mercury Pack and my favorite so far! 

Gwen was also fascinated by the whole true-mate thing. To have someone made specifically for you—someone who would never betray you, never hurt you, and would always cherish you—would be something special. She envied them that.

Both main characters were fantastic and totally kickass, and it was amazing to see some of the rest of the gang. The change of setting was bittersweet since though it gave us a fresh view and awesome new characters, of course we couldn’t get the full on experience of the Mercury pack in their land. I did love this new fresh take that Suzanne Wright gave us in this story, and specially that Gwen is a human! I’ve been so looking forward to a shifter/human pairing, so maybe it’s one of the reasons for which it became my fav of this series.

“You’re good at ignoring people, aren’t you, Gwen?”
“Dude, I’m so good at it, I can make people doubt that they’re actually alive.”

You don’t like that? Go Yahoo, Who gives a rat’s ass? I can promise you won’t find my name.”

LMAO! Nobody, and I mean nobody does this type of snarky, witty humor like Ms. Wright! I mean, it takes one to know one, right?! How could I not be completely in love with Gwen – as usual with SW’s heroines – and all her sarcastic and teasing splendor?! And Zander… Oh Lordy, was that wolfy HOT!!! And for someone who claims to be so aloof and apathetic to others (outside of his pack), he sure does shows us a different and how caring, loving and POSSESSIVE he is towards Gwen from the very start. Oh, and OTT sexy, how could I for get that?! Zander was ‘ovary imploding’ hot! 

“So, you like to use toys in bed?” 
Zander grinned wickedly and lightly squeezed her thigh. “You’d be my toy, baby.”

Suzanne Wright has once again created true PNR beauty, and given us EVERYTHING in Lure of Oblivion: funny, emotional, thrilling, sexy, steamy and loving endless moments that are keep getting us more and more addicted to her stories and all these characters. And the new countdown start till the new SW brilliancy, and I can’t wait!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 

She was more. She was everything.

You’re already mine, and I’m already yours. Nothing will change that. Not a thing. I wanted you for keeps before I realized we were mates. I am keeping you, no matter what.”

Synopsis

 

One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble.  He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.

The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes.

Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late.

With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy.

***

Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs.

Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her.

***

Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started.

Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten.

Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail.

Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was.

His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.

“Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.”

Meet Colton & Gia in

Falling Fast by Aurora Rose Reynolds!

falling fast cover

Synopsis

Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After six months of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

Header Falling Fast

Talk about a BOOM!!! Colton and Gia’s story is HERE!!!

I’ve been dying for Colton and Gia’s story since we got a glimpse into them on Until June, so you can imagine my level of excitement when Aurora Rose Reynolds announced the release of Falling Fast! I’ll tell you, it was a *running around screaming and squealing* kind of enthusiasm, since it was one of my most anticipated books EVER! 

Watching her go, I know I’m fucked, because I have never in all of my life wanted anything the way I want Gia Caro.

“That’s the kind of woman you lay all your hopes and dreams on, the kind who will make the struggles you’ve been through worth it.”

Well, after finishing Falling Fast I can honestly say the level of giddiness and exhilaration was more than justified, because Colton and Gia were everything I’d been hoping and craving for, and then some!

“I’m in love with you, and I know that isn’t going to change. I don’t want to be without you, so if you said you wanted to live in Chicago… fuck, if you said you wanted to live in Hell, I’d follow you there and do it happily.”

“You just breathing my air makes me happy, baby,”

Colt might have come with a big of nasty baggage, in the shape of a crazy ex, but the man himself and his unwavering faith that Gia was the One for him, and that he wouldn’t allow her, anyone or anything stop him to show Gia they were meant to be, was absolutely swoon-worthy and one of the reasons for which I feel for him as fast as I did. That and his insanely HOT alpha manliness! Oh boy, was this man hhhhhhhooootttt! Straight to my Best Book Boyfriend and my ARR fav H list!

Aurora Rose Reynolds really outdid herself, giving us in Falling Fast, a super sweet, sexy and, one my personal fav trope, insta-love story in most perfect of settings. Loved and devoured it from start to finish, so much so that now I’m  begging to see more of all these fantastic secondary characters, specially Colton’s brother and Gia’s bff! Can’t wait! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I love you, Gia. Had no idea what love was until you, but I know now, and I know I’ll always cherish everything you’ve given to me.”

I might have fallen fast, but I fell right into the perfect life.

Synopsis

 

Everybody has problems. But Travis? Yeah, he has so many problems that he finds it hard to breathe sometimes.

He spends five years catering to his ex-wife’s every want and need—all to make it possible to continue to see his child.

He isn’t supposed to fall in love with a woman, but he does.

He isn’t supposed to find someone that is willing to put up with his ex-wife’s crazy antics, but he has.

He isn’t supposed to be happy, but he is.

And all it takes is his ex-wife finding out about his new-found peace for things to change.

***

Hannah saw him and knew he was the one.

All it took was one look into that haunted man’s eyes, and she was lost, never to be found again.

She thinks she has it all. His love, a new baby made with that love, and a house to raise their blended family.

She’s wrong, and Travis’ ex-wife is out to prove it.

***

Travis doesn’t deserve Hannah. All he’s done is hurt her.

She’s done everything in her power to keep everyone happy, but the more she tries, the harder his ex-wife pushes. Until one day, there’s nothing left to push.

Hannah leaves, and Allegra wins.

But Travis isn’t willing to let her have her way any longer.

He fights back, and only gets a bullet to the chest to show for it.

iScream Book Blog – It’s so damn #HOT you’ll enjoy every page and come back for more.”

Britt Red Hatter Book Blog – “I don’t think there are enough words in the English language to express how insanely incredible Go To Hail is.”

Smashly Bookalicious Reviewing Chicks – “For all those girls who have dealt with a crazy ex and their antics, this book is for you.”

 

 

Header Go To Hail
Lani Lynn Vale sure gave us another HOT and exciting new story with Go To Hail!

I’ve been anxiously awaiting for Hannah to have her very own HEA since LLV’s Code 11 – KPD SWAT series, biting my nails during Wolf’s book, and then when Travis was announced as her H, I’ve been counting down the days until I got their story.

And what a story it is! Damn, talk about between a rock and an hard place! And I’m not just talking about Travis here, but POOR Hannah. Hadn’t she already suffered enough in some of LLV’s previous books?! Poor woman can’t catch a break! I would call her Saint Hannah, the woman has been going through hell for more than ONE YEAR! A saint I tell you! I know Travis was in a horrible and tough situation with his daughter, mainly due to his PSYCHO ex ( though an absolute nightmare in every way, still takes second place, with Mig’s ex as reining queen of all time worst exes), and her disgusting blackmail, but I wish he had realized the hopelessness of the case sooner, and put Hannah and their baby first much early on! This crazy ex took far too much air time in the whole book, than I normally like, and hence why – even though I was expecting some serious OW drama in here – I couldn’t enjoy it as much or get as involved in their romance as I normally do with any of Lani Lynn Vale’s books.

Don’t get me wrong, I still devoured this baby like I always do with any of Lani’s fantastic tales, since we got all her typical kickass, funny, and HOT moments! The storyline was just was thrilling and enrapturing as the rest of her books : we can never go wrong with a LLV book! And these Hail brothers sure are something else. And I did FINALLY get Hannah’s HEA! It was a long time coming, woman! Now, I can’t wait to what these Hail Raisers gang brings us next!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Synopsis

No one would say Keelie Lockhart isn’t determined.  Taking on the role of both mom and dad to her two young kids, she’s managing life the best she can.  Saddled with a century-old dilapidated farmhouse she can’t afford, a bevy of goats, two dogs, and a geriatric donkey, the last thing she has time for is a man—even if that man is a knight whose shining armor comes in the form of worn-in jeans and work boots.  

Controlled, methodical, and focused—Asa Hollingsworth takes charge of everything in life.  Working close to home after years away, he finally has the time to focus on his kids.  Little does he know, a chance meeting with a petite, strawberry-blonde stranded on the side of the road, would intertwine their lives in a way he’d never want to untangle.  

But when school bullies turn into something much worse, Asa starts to dig around.  He never dreams the troubles lurking in the hallways of the local high school would shake his family to its core.  With drug dealers lurking, bullets flying, and threats coming from every angle, Asa must do everything he can to protect the ones he loves.  

Because in the end, there’s nothing more precious than the gift of life.  

Warning:  Oh, I’m sorry, that’s a fake ID.  If you’re not eighteen, consider yourself bounced and walk away from my books.  I’ll gladly welcome you back when you become a legit adult.  That is, unless you’re my parents or my children.  If so, walk away and don’t come back.  You don’t need to know what’s in my head.

5 Million ‘The greatest Gift’ Stars

WOW! WOW! WOW!
Every romance lover – specially the ones that love single parents trope – needs to one click the hell of this baby as soon as it’s live! Believe me you won’t regret it, because this book is EVERYTHING!!! 

Perfect love story and main characters, perfect subplot, perfect secondary characters (even the pets!) : yes, that’s right, utter PERFECTION!
I have no doubt you will fall in love with this whole gang, and I most say I adored both Asa and Keelie, but this man… Swoon…

Her hair’s a mess of waves flowing out from underneath, and for some reason, I like the fact she didn’t feel the need to do herself up.  Not that she needed to.  I’d take her covered in paint any day.

The whole story was beautifully written, but Asa was just far and beyond everything! I’m a sucker for an older, more mature Alpha (you know how much I hate immature Hs, lol) and this man really was THE BEST! Loving, patient and protective of the ones he loved but still remaining a true man’s man, OMG, I just melted and swooned all throughout the book with his actions and his words.

If a kiss could be a promise, then he just professed his declaration—heart and soul.

I’m calling dibs, I tell you, because he went straight to my top Best Book Boyfriend list, and he’s without a doubt my FAVorite of Brynne’s heroes.

“I hope you’re wet, baby.  I plan to bury myself in you so deep, you’ll feel where I’ve been for a week.”

Kellie was just as incredible, and SO STRONG! I hurt for her and her past and admired her resilience and strength – and of course her kickass spirit- and I was so glad Asa crossed paths with her, giving her a much needed breath of passion and happiness into her life!
Finding each other’s soul mate, your other half truly is the greatest gift of them all! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I’m home—for the first time since I moved to the farm, I’m home because I’m in his arms.

I look around at what might seem like bedlam to others—but to us, it’s become a perfect kind of chaos.

Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?

***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Synopsis

 

Captor becomes lover…
I’m a marksman. Mobster. Deadly assassin.
My job is to protect my brotherhood, but that isn’t my only responsibility.
I’m Kieran Hendry, the up-and- coming leader of The Order, and a new duty calls. I must take a wife.
A wife I don’t know.
A wife born into a position at the top of The Fellowship hierarchy.
A wife who will forge a strong alliance between her brotherhood and mine.
A wife I don’t want.
I knew next to nothing about Westlyn Breckenridge when I abducted her, but I quickly discover that she’s intelligent, strong, defiant, selfless. And beautiful.
One night with her is all it takes for me to see that she is no typical Mafia princess. I’m hopeful this arranged marriage won’t be the miserable union I imagined it to be. But convincing my intended to give us a chance won’t be easy when she sees me as the enemy. The brute who kidnapped her. The vile fiend who threatened to do as he wished with her body.
It’s true. I am all those things. I had cruel intentions. But everything has changed. My affection for her is unexpected. My love, unintended.

Excerpt

Kieran Hendry makes me feel like a woman. A desired woman. His words, the way he looks at me, his body language. Everything he does is a huge turn-on. Yet I hate this man. Loathe him. But damn, he has a way of touching me that makes me forget every logical thought in my head. It doesn’t make sense to me how I can despise him and at the same time respond so strongly to his touch.

It’s my body reacting to him, not my head. It must be hormones and sex drive. Those two things combined have the power to make people do things they wouldn’t normally do.

“You’re trembling.” He grazes the back of his fingers down my cheek and my stomach does some kind of flip. “Do I frighten you?”

I look away because I can’t tell him that it isn’t fear giving me the trembles.

He grasps my chin and forces me to look at him. “Do. I. Frighten. You?”

“No.”

He rubs my bottom lip with his thumb. “Then what is it?”

I shake my head.

He leans in for another kiss but stops before his lips touch mine. We’re so close I can feel his breath on my mouth. Just like last night when my body turned to mush.

I’m quivering and my breath has become more rapid. I may even be a little lightheaded.

His bottom lip grazes mine, but he still doesn’t kiss me. “I’ll back off right now if it’s what you want.”

I don’t want him to back off. I also don’t want him to know that I don’t want him to back off. Feels too much like giving in to something I’m not supposed to crave.

“I’m going to kiss you.”

I’m his captive. We made an agreement. I must submit without a fight per our deal to maintain Ellison’s safety.

Yeah. Keep telling yourself that, Wes. Maybe if you say it enough, you’ll start to believe it.

His fingers lace through my hair and he holds me prisoner when he lowers his mouth to mine. I open, giving his tongue an invitation to come inside. The two meet, and together they become erotic dance partners with Kieran taking the lead.

I’ve only had one very forgettable kiss in my life. But this kiss… I could live a million years and never forget it or the way I feel right now.

He stops, his lips hovering over mine. His breath warm against my skin. “More or stop? Your decision.”

He’s asking me to venture further with him. My body says yes, but my head tells me that one more step will take me to a place I shouldn’t go with this man. I’m twenty-three and being kissed for the second time in my life. I don’t want this to stop. “More.”

Header Unintended

4.5 ‘Mo Chroí’ Stars

Oh, Wow, talk about an intended mate becoming full on unintended FOREVER LOVE!!!

Well, like everyone who’s read and loved this series and specially after Endurance, I’ve been dying to know all about what happened in those days after Westlyn and Ellison’s abduction and the agreement of marriage between The Order and The Fellowship. Unintended can be read as a standalone, but to fully enjoy and understand all this Mafia universe – and because the rest of the series are MUST READS – I advise reading all the previous books, where we got to meet not only Kieran and Westlyn, but the rest of gang.

Kieran and Westlyn have been raised in the ways of the brotherhoods since they were born, and knew of their fates weren’t really their own, and obligations they would  have to fulfill, but that is very different from having to face that reality instantly, and having to accept that in a matter of days they will have to marry someone they don’t even know for the peace of their brotherhoods. Two marriages between their leaders families to seal a peace treaty between two enemy brotherhoods. 

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing to tell our children one day that the brotherhood they’ve grown up in and their mother’s brotherhood were once at war, but our marriage and their existence brought peace to the two of them?”

Kidnapping his future intended may seem like a OTT measure by Kieran, but for the man that will be the future leader of The Order, nothing is too much if it insures his objectives are fulfilled and he gets what he wants. To claim his mate.

This woman has the power to affect me. Affect my actions. My emotions. It’s a weakness I can’t afford.

Oh, yes, Kieran never expected to be so affected by his intended, and I loved how sucker punched he was by his reactions to Westlyn, given his cocky and asshole attitude, specially in the regards of required female purity *insert eye roll* – yeah, yeah, I know it’s a brotherhood/culture thing, but damn, I hate one sided expectations! If the leaders want pure brides they should keep it in their pants too, argh… – made me slap him silly a bunch of times, lol. Ok, rant over, because like I said, it’s a culture thing, and the women, given how they were brought up, are fully aware and understand. And, boy did the man make up for his initial asshole attitude! I did love how Westlyn reacted to him instantly, but never lost her focus of the situation, that she was a captive to The Order, her brotherhood enemies, and that though she was incredibly attracted to Kieran, she remained strong, and true to herself.  

No man has ever spoken to me the way Kieran does. Telling me that I’m beautiful and that he wants me and that I’m going to be his. Feeling desired and wanted… it’s intoxicating, even if it is coming from this brute.

She may have been melting on the inside, and her body begging for all that Kieran was offering, but she knew all that was at stake, and made the man work for it! The sexual tension was off the charts and Kieran was beyond HOT and swoony in every way after their initial confrontation. It was full on ‘seduce Westlyn’ game on!

“Even if I say yes to your marriage proposal, I won’t belong to you. I am my own person.” 
She’s delusional if she believes that misconception. “That’s where you’re wrong, Westlyn. When you take my last name and my cock, you will become mine… my property. But that also means you’ll become my treasure to protect. I will place myself between you and whatever danger presents itself. No harm will ever come to you or our children. That’s my vow to you.”

See what I mean? WOW!!! From that point on he really was the PERFECT book boyfriend, and made me swoon and sigh often and constantly. Him revealing his true self, his hidden pain and fragility, to her was just the perfect culmination of their courtship. They were indeed the perfect match.

“I don’t know how it’s done in The Fellowship, but we are faithful to our partners. When I claim you, you also claim me. Just as you owe me your faithfulness and loyalty and devotion, I owe you the same.

Yep, I’m adoring this Syndicate men! You know how much I worship loyalty and faithfulness in my characters, so you can imagine why this Sin series is one of my favorites, because, so far all the characters have been incredibly loyal to their mates, and Kieran and Westlyn are once again fantastic on that matter. From the start they don’t settle, they show and demand that loyalty and discover that have the same view on their marriage. They want a real marriage, they are each others, and only each others!

Westlyn Breckenridge is mine. 
I will go to fucking war with The Order, The Fellowship, or whoever for her if I must.

Kieran stole me… and I liked it. 
He told me I was beautiful… and I liked it.
He took my virginity… and I liked it. A lot. 
He calls me wife… and I love it. 
Captor becomes intended becomes lover becomes husband.

OMG! They were fantastic! I completely feel in love with these two, and their love story. And Kieran surprised me in the most wonderful ways in how he treated Westlyn. Like she really was his whole world, not only the woman he was obligated to marry, but his life. His salvation.

This woman. She’s the light to my dark. The angel to my devil. The quiet to my storm. The key to my prison.

“You’re the angel who possesses the power to ease my hell.”

Georgia Cates managed to capture all the blossoming of Kieran and Westlyn’s love story, in the most beautiful, organic and realistic of ways, and still maintain all this incredibly and well constructed Mafia universe, that makes us live all this intense emotions right along with all these characters.

“Love is like a rose. It blooms at the perfect time when it’s at its most beautiful, but only after being nurtured. That’s what our relationship needs: to be nurtured so it can bloom when it’s at its most beautiful.”

“Please, Westlyn. I can’t recall in twenty-eight years ever hearing those words said to me. You’d be the first to say them.” 
We are so much alike, he and I. Both of us yearning to be loved.

Unintended really was so much more romantic and heartfelt than I could have imagined, and I couldn’t have loved Kieran and Westlyn more than I did. It was fantastic to live and go through all these feelings with them. Georgia Cates couldn’t have created a more perfect story for this Mafia arranged marriage, we got all the emotions of the love story plus an enrapturing side plot that is giving us so many potential main characters and interesting plots for the series future. This series keeps getting richer and more and more enticing, and after some considerations pointed out by Kieran himself here, I now hope – PRAY – that Lorna will get her own HEA with another that not Leith, and if that teaser is any indication, I’m hoping she does indeed get her own fresh start and a brand new H, that is the perfect man for her! Fingers crossed and counting down the days!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

She is my other half. My better half. And that is why I will never let her go.
I was her kidnapper. I may have taken her as my captive, but she’s the one who captured my heart.

When I stole this beautiful woman, all I had in my heart was anger and rage and malice. I had cruel intentions. But then everything changed. My affection for her was unexpected. My love, unintended.

Synopsis

Emery Matheson knows pussies. Cats, that is. As the star of a reality show called The Pussy Tamer, it’s his job to fix extreme feline behavioral issues.

When he hears about his next project—a lonely cat hoarder named Estelle—he expects a little old widow, not the blond bombshell who opens the door.

With a 100 percent success rate, Emery has never had trouble finishing a job. But just a few hours into the first day of filming and one thing is clear—Estelle and her band of misfit pussies will give him a run for his money… and his heart.

Excerpt

Red spots began soaking through Emery’s gray T-shirt.

“Oh my God. You’re bleeding.” I pointed at his chest. “I’m so sorry.”

He just laughed. “Occupational hazard. We have a medic on hand for that very reason. Besides, it’s not like you didn’t warn me.”

His words summoned a brunette carrying a first aid kit.

“You know the drill,” she said, grinning at him while she opened the case and started lining up her supplies on the kitchen table.

Emery grabbed the back of his T-shirt and pulled it over his head, being careful not to disrupt the wires from his mic.

Suddenly, it felt like all the air had been sucked out of the room. The thin material had done little to hide the muscle definition underneath, but at least then I couldn’t see his smooth skin.

His nipples.

The ridges of his abs and that highly coveted V by his hips.

A thin smattering of hair covered his chest, traveling down the center of his abs and below his belly button. The light brown trail disappeared into the waist of his jeans.

I wanted to run my fingers over it. All of it. Even the parts I couldn’t see.

I was looking at the most magnificent torso ever—not just in real life—in the entire damn universe. He had movie stars and models beat. I remembered watching a video of Charlie Hunnam training for an upcoming role, and I’d been in awe of the amount of work it took to look that good.

Regular people didn’t just go walking around in that kind of shape. Apparently, Emery didn’t fall into the category of ‘regular people.’

And God bless him for it.

Feeling weak in the knees, I leaned my hip against the counter and wondered if I was the only one affected. Everyone else went about their tasks as usual. Well, everyone except for the medic.

After taking a seat, Emery said something to her about not using bandages this time, and her response was a nervous giggle. She quickly cleaned the area with disinfectant, then put cream over the scratches.

Red-faced, she slowly backed away as Emery slipped a new shirt on.

A different kind of heat flared through me, but this one was familiar and much more unpleasant than the virus I was fighting off.

Jealousy.

I was jealous that she got to touch him.

I made a face, because that was ridiculous. Emery was here to work, not get eye-fucked by the crazy cat lady.

The hot-and-bothered medic taped a sign to the wall by the door. In big letters, it said, ‘Do not leave door open. Mike will run.’ It made my sudden desire to claw her eyes out diminish.

She was just doing her job.

Psycho much, Estelle?

Opening my cabinet, I grabbed the bottle of Tylenol and choked down a couple pills along with my sweet tea.

I extended the medicine toward Emery. “Want some?”

“Nah,” he replied. “It doesn’t hurt that bad.”

“That happens a lot, doesn’t it?” I lightly accused.

“Getting mauled by cats?” He laughed. “More times than I can count.”

“No.” I tipped my head toward the flushed woman retreating from my apartment. “People losing their shit every time you take your shirt off.”

 

Header Untamable

AWWW…

UNTAMABLE IS PERFECT! UTTERLY AND COMPLETELY PUUURRRFECT!

I’m sorry, but I had to go there, with this many pussies in one book, how could I not?! LOL

Now, seriously – ok, as much as I can be – Emery and Estelle’s story surpassed all my expectations.  Yes, I was anticipating a pretty amazing and hilarious Rom Com with plenty of sexual innuendo and some deliciously cheesy lines, and I sure got all that, but Untamable surprised me so much, given it was SO much more than that. It was EVERYTHING! It made me do through all the range of feeling possible, and in such a realistically and perfect way written that I was so invested in the characters and their emotions I even ended up shedding a few tears in a more than one occasion and not all of them laughing.

I’d heard people talk about this moment. When they were so captivated by someone, time seemed to stop. 

The whole world would get to witness the first time I ever felt weak in the knees from one look. One simple sentence. One set of perfect plump lips.

I never expected to be so emotionally connected with the story so I can honestly say Estelle, Emery and his family, and specially his dad, completely stole my heart. 

Emery and Estelle meet in the most unusual of ways as a cat hoarder and the pussy tamer, but from the get go we could see that besides the instant connection, these two were indeed the perfect match in all ways possible. OMG, I loved these two so very much!

First kisses were meant to test the waters. They were supposed to be brief and gentle. 
Nothing about Emery’s kiss was quick or apprehensive. 
I’d waited my entire life for a kiss like this—I just didn’t realize I’d been waiting for it. Until now.

I already knew going in that Jamie Schlosser always creates the most realisticly, down to earth heroes, but with Emery she went far and beyond. It’s like she has an Perfect Man handbook and she just goes there and pick one up, and each it she ups the game even more. Body, heart and soul perfect! Like Estelle said herself the man didn’t have flaws, he was good and loyal to the core in a smoking hot package and just as scorching in between the sheets, so she was one lucky lady. 

She let me see her—all of her. I was such a lucky motherfucker.

He was like a drug. And I just had to face it—I was so fucking addicted to Emery Matheson.  

Estelle was an equally interesting character, I loved her spunky, quirky, hold no barriers attitude. Her hidden fragility and love and care for her cats, just made her even more endearing to me, and with a combo like that in a blonde bombshell like that, Emery didn’t stand a chance. Two golden hearts matched perfectly!

So it doesn’t matter how far apart we are,” I said, squeezing her hand. “Wherever I am, you’ll still be my greatest something.”

Jamie really exceeded all my expectations and blew my mind in how she was able to compile every emotion in the book – worry not, because it is a RomCom after all, so the hilariousness was still front and center –  and make me fall in love, not only with the main characters, but with the secondary ones. Undoubtedly heart touching, soul warming and spirit lifting! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I love you,” he blurted out, and I sucked in a breath so fast I thought I might choke on it. “I love your potty mouth and the way you don’t give a fuck if anyone approves or not. I love that you bottle fed kittens. I love that you lose at strip poker on purpose. I even love the way you drive.” He took a deep breath. “You’ve shown me everything about you, Estelle. I see you. And I love all of it.”

“If we ever get separated—by death or otherwise—I’d dream of you every night just so we could be together.”

Synopsis

A love of a lifetime . . .

Leaving Belmont Clarkson is the hardest thing Sage Alexander has ever done. From the moment they met, she knew Belmont was the one, and getting up close and personal with him on his family’s epic road trip has taken her desire to a new, even hotter level. But there’s no way she can go there—not without revealing secrets that could devastate them both.

Losing Sage is not an option. Belmont’s heart is hers, has always been hers. He knows she’s hiding something from him, but nothing will stand in his way of telling her just how much she means to him. Finding her is easy—saving her from her past could cost him everything.

Excerpt

“You don’t have to leave right away,” Sage said when Belmont turned, watching her from beneath his eyebrows. “Can you wait here while I take a quick shower?”

Maybe that hadn’t been the right thing to say. His big back heaved and the touch of his tongue in her mouth came crashing in like a behemoth wave. They had crossed an unspoken boundary on the train platform. There was no going back to before, to when they stopped at rough, crushing embraces. As if that hadn’t been…more than sexual somehow.

“Yes, I’ll wait,” he said, his voice sounding like serrated metal. “I can light the fire for you.”

I’ll say. God, why did everything sound like an innuendo now? If her body weren’t flush and sweating beneath the jumpsuit, she would have laughed about it. But there was nothing funny about having Belmont looming mere yards away, looking like one word of encouragement would snap his chain and send him barreling toward her. “That would be perfect. I’ll just be…a few minutes.”

Sage all but dove into the itty-bitty bathroom, pressing her back up against the door and willing her racing heart to calm down. Why had she asked him to stay? Her resolve would weaken with every passing second. Biting down on her lower lip, she began the excruciating task of lowering the zipper of her jumpsuit, which kicked up a protest in her triceps and shoulder muscles. When she finally got it down, she gripped the hem of her T-shirt and attempted to lift it over her head.

Her arms wouldn’t cooperate. They flat out wouldn’t rise any higher than her ribs, leaving the T-shirt suspended in midair. Her muscles burned like someone had doused them in lighter fluid and held them above a flame. Sage’s agony must have escaped in the form of a whimper, because Belmont’s boots scraped just outside the door. And her stomach hollowed with awareness, lightning racing all over her skin.

“Sage.” His voice was deep, urgent. “Do you need help?”

No. Say no. She’d only gotten finished reminding him she didn’t need him. But in this case, it would be a lie and she’d done so much of that lately. With Belmont. The most truthful person she knew. “I can’t get my shirt off.” Her nose started to ache, the tip probably turning red. “My arms hurt.”

His growl was short and broken. A beat passed before the door opened and she felt Belmont filling the doorway behind her. She flicked a glance up to the ancient mirror and confirmed what she’d seen in her mind’s eyes. Belmont towering over her like an avenging angel, outlined by candlelight. He’d taken off his coat, leaving him in a black long-sleeved shirt, which he’d rolled up to the elbows. Every inch of visible skin was shot through with strained cords of muscle, as if his frustration were written on him like a road map.

Sage still had the shirt halfway lifted, so her lower back was visible. Not a big deal to most people. But Belmont had never seen anything below her neck. Or above her knees. With the jumpsuit peeled halfway down, the band of her underwear might even be peeking out.

Breathing grew difficult as Belmont took one step closer and took hold of the T-shirt, his knuckles grazing the small of her back. “You’re wearing”—his breath ghosted down her neck—“my shirt.”

Sage only realized she’d closed her eyes when they popped open. Oh God. In the shock of Belmont arriving, she’d forgotten. “I am?” Her mouth was parched. “L-look at that.”

“I am looking.” She jumped when Belmont reached over her shoulder with his left hand and turned on the shower, the sound of spray filling the room. Then the roughness of his knuckles returned, sliding up her spine along with the shirt. “I like knowing there was a layer of me standing between you and the earth.”

Her legs took on the consistency of Jell-O. His touch was a drug, making her languid, although it was different than the way he usually touched her. There was sex this time. So much of it. And it was that major difference that allowed Sage to accept the skimming of his fingers. Accept the part of herself that lusted. They were in a dark room and time had surely suspended anywhere outside this little plot of square footage. Words ached to leave her mouth, words that wouldn’t be suitable in the sunlight. This man, so warm and brave and large at her back, knew things about her no one else did. What was one more secret? “I stole it out of your suitcase. I broke a commandment and everything.”

“Why?” He breathed into her hair, sinking heat like an anchor in her belly. The shirt came off, her arms dropped to her sides, and she was left in nothing but a bra from the waist up. Inches from Belmont. “Why, sweetest girl?”

A light steam had begun curling in the air like beckoning fingers. Maybe this is a dream. It felt like one of the fevered fantasies she woke from on occasion, sweat slicking her breasts and neck. “Because I like the way you smell and it hadn’t been washed.”

His exhale was gravelly. “Sage.”

“Yes.”

She thought he might not respond, but finally he asked a question that made her nipples turn to hard points. “Can you manage”—a long, windy inhale—“the bra?”

Sage tried. She really, truly did. Her arms felt as though they might break off and hit the floor, but she reached back until her muscles locked up, refusing to move farther. But Belmont was already there, pushing them back down, holding them at her hips.

“Jesus. Please, stop. I can’t watch it.” His touch disappeared only for a second and then the cotton material of the bra tightened over her breasts. She could feel him working the back clasp with fingers she knew so well. They’d tunneled through her hair so many times, twisted in her clothing, but had never, ever, touched her with any kind of…intent. Intent to seduce. And that’s what he was doing, intentional or not. The inhibitions she’d held close forever, circled the drain, along with the shower water. “Your back is so beautiful.” A ghost of a fingertip traced down her spine. “But I need to leave before I—”

“What?”

“Before I turn you around.” They weren’t touching, but she could sense the shudder that ran through him. “Or look in that mirror.”

Right or wrong, the mine, their codependency aside, Sage knew if she let him leave just then, she would regret it for all time. Her body had been woken up. By one man. He’d kept her on the razor’s edge for thousands of miles, surrounding her with his power and taking it away. Over and over. And this fever wrapping around them in the tiny bathroom was completely different from easing his anxiety. Finally, she felt like a woman standing in front of him, instead of a calming device. This was mutual and alive and she couldn’t stand it to end. Tomorrow might be a different story, but this moment was the culmination of a thousand dreams and she could no more deny herself than she could forget his face.

“Belmont, do you think of the kiss?”

“I never stop,” he groaned into her hair. “Never.”

She took a deep breath for courage. “Will you shower with me?”

4.5 ‘My Heartbeat/Love of a Lifetime’ Stars

ALL THE FEELS!!!

Seriously, Tessa Bailey just wrecked me with these two’s UNBREAKABLE love story! Belmont and Sage’s broken souls stole my breath and made me cry like a baby – interrupted by so seriously needed fanning myself due their sexual tension and sexy times, it is Tessa Bailey, after all – and proved how family and soulmates’ love and support is the only healing possible! Loved really conquered ALL in this epic ending for this amazing series!

Belmont, the only remaining single – not really, lol – of the Clarkson siblings, has been since the very first book, the character I was most captivated and intrigued about, because for me, like it was reinforced multiple times in this book, Belmont was the core, the driving center of this damaged family. Bel was without a doubt one of the most beautiful male characters I have ever read.

He was the only one of his kind.

Belmont was special and unique in every way, and Sage knew that very well immediately after meeting him, all those years back. They were indeed drawn to each other like two halves of one’s soul.

“Your heart asked mine. And mine was already begging.”

My GOD!!! This man!!! Seriously, his love, no, love is not strong enough would for what we can feel he feels for her, WORSHIP is so much more fitting. Sage was the center of his universe, so when she is obligated to remove herself from his life, to protect him, we could already feel the depth of his heartbreak.

“My heart, Aaron. I don’t think I can keep it beating without her.”

Cue the sobby tears… Fear not, he didn’t spend the rest of the book balled up in despair, and went to get his woman and find out why she left their life so suddenly, and he had quite a battle ahead of him, given Sage was just has damaged as him. I have to say this book truly had all the feels, but in the first half I was a bit too lost inside their heads. Yes, we needed those thoughts to understand these two, but at some points they became almost the entire chapters, and given the sadness and depression of their state of mind, I felt it became too much. Yes, they did indeed live inside their heads, but a bit more of communication or at least an effort too, would have created a different dynamic and undoubtedly reached the full 5 stars for me. Actually Belmont alone would have achieved it!

“My name is Belmont. I’m your daughter’s…” Sweat began to bead on his brow under their close attention. “I’m your daughter’s.”

See what I mean? This introduction to her parents alone shows all everything that Bel is about: Sage’s! 😉

Sage knew exactly his level of devotion, because she reciprocated in measure, and that exactly her fear, considering her parents extreme codependency. That was their hardest obstacle and the line that they feared crossing, and OMG, their struggle just about undid me! It completely torn me apart and I was suffering to find balance right along with them. That woman was strong, because I sure has hell you not be able to resist everything that was Belmont… He was everything!

“I already knew. Because you’re a man who values everyone’s happiness above himself. And that’s what makes you the greatest man any of us will ever know. There’s never been anyone like you, Belmont. There never will be again. How lucky am I that I get to love you?”

She knew how love she was, even given his damaged soul, Belmont gave his all for her, even touching her with a care and love of one who touches a divinity, a relic. When he realized all his love and devotion was not one sided and that Sage crave him just like he craved her, it was like someone gave him the world. Apropos since she was indeed his world.

She fit against him like God had taken a mold of his body and created a woman who would correspond to every jut and angle of him.

Some may consider his level of devotion/obsession too much, too stalkerish, but I adored him for it, and devoured every word from his lips, case in point that I have DOZENS, yes, dozens of Bel’s quotes highlighted on my book, and it was nearly impossible to chose for this review, I wanted to show you everything that Belmont is, and what an lucky lady Sage was. 

There was nothing better in the entire world than being held by Belmont.

So I’ll stop here, and tell all of you to go get Too Beautiful to Break, and find for yourselves just how dreamy, swoon-worthy and perfectly imperfect Belmont is, and how amazing, heartbreaking and soul-warming his and Sage’s story is. Tessa Bailey may have given us the saddest/darkest of her stories in this book, but TBTB was so much more and even being each others one and only – can’t put into words I much I loved that <3 – it didn’t deter TB of given us some of her her trademark steamy hot sexy times, and dirty talk. Told you Bel was perfect in every way! 😉

Too Beautiful to Break was the PERFECT closure for this incredible and emotional series. What a better way to finish than with the person that was the hidden key behind all the complicated Clarksons HEA?! Brilliant Ending for a brilliant Series! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“A fearless man for a fearless woman, Sage. All of me is standing on this beach in front of you. All of me will stand beside you for the rest of my life.”

“There’s my heartbeat,” he whispered in her ear. “I love you.”

Synopsis

A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…
but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

Excerpt

I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.

His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.

I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.

I don’t know what to say.

This guy has left me sort of speechless.

“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.

“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.

Oh god.

Why am I licking my lips?

It only made his eyes narrow and darken.

        I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?

“This is illegal,” I state.

His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”

I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.

“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”

“So are you, Alana.”

“It’s just … Lana.”

His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”

I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?

“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.

“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.

I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”

He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”

I lose my breath.

My eyes wide.

He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.

“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.

“And go where?”

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”
