Synopsis

I thought I had control. I was so, so wrong . . .

I don’t need a relationship.
I have Hux, a decadent club where I quench whatever raw desire I choose. I take pleasure and I give it—no strings attached. So when Raya Rivers comes in asking for someone cold, emotionless, and filthy . . . well, no man ever takes his wicked pleasure quite the way I do.
Only Raya is different. Vulnerable. And carrying some deep sorrow that gets past all my carefully constructed walls and inexplicably makes me care. Now craving controls me. Ice has given way to red-hot need.
But Raya has no idea about my other life—my real life. That I’m a daddy to an adorable little girl.
My two worlds are about to collide with the force of a supernova. And once Raya knows the truth, will she be able to accept all I am?

Excerpt

‘What do you want, Raya?’

She steps toward me tentatively, as if she’s questioning what she’s doing. And when she reaches me, her chest pressed to mine, she gazes up at me. ‘I don’t know.’ Her eyes are wild and unsure. ‘But I know that every time we’re close, something powerful takes over. And you’re trying hard to fight it. You’re warm and cold. What are you scared of?’

‘You.’ My mouth is on her before I can think better of it, and I’ve lifted her from her feet before my tongue breaches the seam on her lips. We should talk, but this is the only thing I know what to say right now, and when her arms circle my shoulders, her mouth opening up, inviting me in, I know she’s okay with it. I know she gets it.

With one arm around her waist holding her to me and one secured on the nape of her neck, I walk to my office, my kiss deep, my blood racing, my heart bouncing off my ribcage. I set her on her feet and take the hem of her dress, pulling it up over her head, losing her lips for just a second in the process. She wrenches my shirt open, scattering buttons in the process, her hands immediately finding my skin beneath. My forward steps encourages her backwards, our kiss deepening as she unfastens my trousers and I push her knickers down her thighs.

We’re all over the place, desperation getting the better of us, a mess of tongues, hands and bodies. I pull some strength from nowhere, seize her hands and break our kiss, breathing heavily. Her unsure brown eyes soon prompts me to start ridding myself of the rest of my clothes, all under her watchful gaze. Until I’m naked.

‘This wasn’t supposed to happen,’ she whispers.

 

Header All I am 4

What a better way to celebrate – for those celebrating – Father’s Day than with Super Dad himself, Drew Davies?! Well, I’ll tell you, All I Am is an deliciously hot way to spend a couple of hours and will leave wanting even more from Jodi Ellen Malpas’ This Man series!

I can’t express how excited I was when Jodi first announced she was releasing this novella, since, like most of you who have read The lord of the Manor trilogy, I always craved more and more of this fantastic universe. And that’s exactly what JEM gave us!

Eight years after the end of This Man Confessed, Drew, that we know as the most broody and introvert of the hot trio of friends, is now a single parent – thanks to Cora’s devious and revolting shenanigans – of an adorable little girl, the good that came of of something awful. 

Georgia is the center of his universe, his everything, and he wants nothing else apart from the occasional and detached liaisons at his usual sex club. And that is exactly where he meets Raya, the woman who’s going to push his world out of kilter, and make his question all this stone written resolutions.

For the first time I can remember, I’m envious of my friends’ contentment. Both Jesse and Sam are still head over heels, eight years later. I honestly never thought they would find women who could handle them. And now it’s just me. It never bothered me before now.

But don’t think it was an easy ride, which surprised me due to the length of story. Raya has major hung-ups of her own,very valid ones I’d say, and both struggle with this insane lust and magnetism. They both have complicated situations and pasts, but for me, Drew’s pushing away, along with some other details and actions in their story, kind of put me off, and stole from my full enjoyment. Don’t get me wrong, I still devoured it, like everything JEM writes, but Drew’s almost to the end resistance to Arya’s importance and giving into his feelings took far too long and dominated the novella. That being sad, revisiting all the gang and seeing Jesse in all his Alpha hotness was priceless. Drew should have listen to the man! He got his woman and his HEA, so he knows what he’s talking about, lol!

“What?” he questions. Jesse’s eyes roll dramatically, his big chest expanding under his Ralph Lauren shirt on an inhale. “You practically trampled a guy.” He toasts me with his glass. “That’s a fucking huge red flag, mate.”

 I stare at my bottle moodily. “He was a cock.” Sam and Jesse both laugh. “I’m glad you two are finding this amusing.” I’m in fucking bits here. 

Sam’s palm lands on my good shoulder. “It happens to the best of us, my man. I have fucking battle wounds from the cat-and-mouse games Kate had me playing, and worst of all I didn’t even realize I was fucking playing. Women do that. Make you lose your sense and perspective.”

OMG, and the scene of the three men with Georgia was the best!!! I’ll not spoil it for you, but really it was a major highlight and put a huge smile on my face! 

Jodi gave us yet another amazingly well written story, with complex characters in Drew and Raya, and a speedy emotional roller coaster that you MUST read! Even if you haven’t read the original trilogy – what are you waiting for??? – you can still fully enjoy and understand this book, and for those who read, I’m sure you’re already digging into it, because hello… Jesse Ward! But if you aren’t here’s your chance. Believe me, you will not want to miss this über sexy, emotional and funny novella! Now, counting down the days for The Forbidden! <3 <3 <3 <3


“Georgia asked me if I loved you. And you know what? I do. What else could explain this madness?”

Header Reveal

The second part of the Lamian is here and with Reveal the plot thickens and the steam rises, so be prepared! <3

Falcon, Draco, Leonora and Charlotte’s story continues, and the action and suspense take a whole new level in this one. While on Bound, we got to meet the characters and theirs background, as well as the beginning of their journey together, in Reveal we get deep within the action and see as well as feel the incredible bound the mates share. They truly are each everything, and it was like they couldn’t breath when apart.

I understood that our love was greater than just a normal love. Our bond was deeper than any human one could ever be. We felt each other, and his strength flowed through me when I needed it most. He was more than my rock, he was my everything. Until this moment, I hadn’t realized the depth of our connection. We were bound in every way possible. I wouldn’t be able to exist without him.

Or keep their hands of each other when in close proximity, or even after the shortest of times. So much so, that, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, I felt there were a bit too many sex scenes within the first chapter, and in the most suprising situation, sometimes out of the blue. And I get horny pregnancy hormones, believe me, but here the leading ladies took it to a whole new level! Just a bit too OTT for my taste, even for my pervy mind. But one thing more I have to say about those is that ALL were incredibly, and scorchingly HOT!!! I may have had to take a break or two to fetch a cold glass of water, because oh boy, was it hot in here! *still fanning myself*

I will not extend too much this review, since it’s really hard to describe how good this book is without revealing to much, but I’ll say this, C. M. Steele created in this series, my new favorite books/series of hers, and I’m totally addicted and can’t recommend them enough. The writing is enrapturing and the characters, specially the heroes, are pure OTT alpha deliciousness. Add to that a old, historical feel to their charm, and they become truly irresistible. 

Again for those of you who fear trilogies until they are completed, rest assured, the cliffy, it’s in reality non existent, and C. M. Steele really doesn’t really doesn’t leave us hanging, and I thank her for that! Absolutely ending for this second book. Couldn’t ask for better! So no relationship cliffies or anything like that! Just a  enticing paranormal trilogy where the background plot and the mystery and suspense connect all the three installments. I seriously can’t wait for the third book, coming next Fall! <3 <3 <3 <3 

My family is everything to me and I will do anything to protect her,”

Synopsis

The Boudreaux Series—Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Sometimes the past is better left behind you…

Lena Turner has spent her life as the outsider. Thanks to her extraordinary gifts, she’s learned to be independent—especially when it comes to men. She’s content to live her life in New Orleans as a schoolteacher, dating casually and dedicated to her small family. Long term is not part of her plan.

Sometimes the past catches up with you…

Leaving Lena behind to pursue his career was the most difficult thing Mason Coulter ever did. He told himself that it was for the best, had even convinced himself that he had only Lena’s best interests in mind. But now, after six long years, he’s back in New Orleans to settle his late eccentric aunt’s estate. All he has to do is get in and out of the city without submitting to the need to see Lena. But to Mason’s dismay, his aunt made other plans.

And sometimes the future and the past collide…

Having Mason walk back into her life is something Lena never saw coming. She could refuse to help him, but she’s never been good at telling Mason no. So she’ll do what she can to get the estate settled and Mason out of her life for good.

At least, that’s the plan. But Mason has plans of his own…

Excerpt

I wipe the back of my hand over my forehead and glance at my notes when suddenly, the air in the room shifts.

It’s subtle, but I feel it. The hair stands up on my neck. I haven’t felt this in six years.

“You can get back in your Ferrari and go away,” I say casually without looking over at the doorway and do my best to ignore the damn zoo that’s come awake in my stomach.

“I don’t have a Ferrari,” he replies. His voice hasn’t changed at all. It’s thick like melted milk chocolate, and he still has his southern accent. I don’t know why that surprises me.

“Well, whatever horse you rode in on? Ride back out on it.”

I hear him sigh, but I refuse to look at him. Because just one look will suck me in, and I’ve vowed never to be sucked in by Mason Coulter ever again.

“It’s good to see you, Lena.”

“Mm hmm.” I pretend to study my notes, but I don’t actually see the words anymore. “Good to see you, too.”

“You haven’t even looked over here.”

I can hear the smile in his voice. It makes me cringe.

“What do you want?”

“I want you to look at me,” he replies.

“Well, we don’t always get what we want.” Yes, I’m being a bitch, and no, I’m not sorry. Mason was the one. The one that I fell head over heels for, the one that charmed the pants off of me, literally, and then he just left. He disappeared, and I was left here, wondering what in the hell happened. Wondering what I did wrong because I was twenty-two and naïve and so heartsick for him I thought I wouldn’t survive it.

But I did.

“So, you’re still mad?”

I blink rapidly for a second, and then I can’t help it. I turn and take him in, from the top of his gorgeous, dark head to the tip of his designer shoes, and my body immediately comes to life. Panties are singed. And if I thought it was hot in here ten minutes ago, it’s an inferno now.

Damn him. He just had to stay hot, didn’t he? I mean, couldn’t he have lost all of his hair? Gained a whole bunch of weight? Something?

“You could say I’m still mad,” I reply, proud of myself for sounding calm and indifferent to him, when I’m anything but indifferent. “So unless you came in here to tell me you have a terminal illness, you can just turn around and go. I’m not interested in chit chat.”

“You were always good at chit chat,” he says and flashes that perfect smile at me. But there’s something there, in his smile that tells me something isn’t quite right.

And I’m just a sucker because I’m about to ask him what it is. I should stay firm and ask him to go.

But first, I need to settle an old score.

“You know,” I begin and put the cap on the blue marker. I set it down and turn to fully face him. “The last time I saw you, you said you’d be right back.”

“I said I’d see you soon,” he says, the smile fully leaving his face now.

“And then you just bailed.”

He sighs and leans against the doorjamb. He crosses his arms over his chest and glances down at his shoes, then back up at me. “I owe you an apology for that.”

“Yeah. You do.”

“I’m sorry.” His grey eyes are holding my own, and I can see the sincerity there, hear it in his voice. “I am truly sorry, Lena.”

I nod and turn away. “Thanks.”

“And I need your help.”

Of course he does.

This couldn’t be a quick, I want to stop in to see how you are, apologize, and go on my merry way.

No, it has to be complicated.

“My Aunt Claudia passed away last week.”

“Oh, Mason.” I turn quickly, blinking rapidly. I’m so sorry. I liked her very much.”

He nods. “Thank you.”

Mason and his Aunt Claudia were very close. I believe that we all have that one special family member that we bond with, who is important in our lives, and for him, it was his aunt. He spent summers with her here in New Orleans when he was young.

“I hadn’t heard that she’d passed.” That must be what I see behind his eyes. I don’t have the psychic abilities that my best friend, Mallory, has. But I can sense things. I want to hug him, to comfort him, but I stay planted where I am because I know what his touch will do to me.

“I’d planned to come to town and quickly take care of her estate, but it seems Aunt Claudia had other plans.” He laughs humorlessly and shakes his head, looking at the ceiling. “The attorney informed me that she was very clear that you were to come with me to the reading of the will.”

“Me?” I frown. “Why? I only met her a couple of times.”

He shrugs and pushes his hand through his hair, in the say way he did six years ago. But now the muscles under his black T-shirt are more defined, tanner from all of the hours he spends outside digging around for old things.

Mason is a well-known and important archeologist.

“You know that she was a bit… eccentric.” He smiles. “It’s one of the reasons I loved her so much. She did what she wanted, and she wanted this.”

“I see.” I swallow and stare out of the windows at the trees. There’s a slight breeze today. I walk over and open the window, wiggle my fingers and feel the breeze blow in my room. “And if I refuse?”

“If you refuse, her estate will be donated to the city of New Orleans.” My head whips around to stare at him again. “I know, it’s a lot of pressure. I don’t need her money, Lena. Archeology has been good to me. But I loved her, and I’d like to do right by her.”

I take a deep breath and let it out slowly. So, he’s not here because he wanted to see me. He’s here because his aunt didn’t give him a choice. He’s right, it is a lot of pressure.

“You can think about it,” he says. He pulls a business card from his pocket and sets it on the desk closest to him. “That’s my cell number. I need to be at the attorney’s office on Friday at 2:00 in the afternoon. If you decide you’re willing to go with me, I wrote the address on the back.”

I nod, staring at the small square of white paper.

“Lena?”

“Yeah?” My gaze finds his again and he smiles, as if remembering something especially sweet.

“You look fantastic. You’ve hardly changed at all.”

“Oh, I’ve changed.”
 

 Header Easy Fortune

What a delicious SURPRISE story Kristen Proby gave us! 

Easy Fortune is a sweet, sexy and super fast paced adventure. Not kidding, this novella really tells us the adventure Leah and Mason go through, a imposed adventure, but a exciting journey nonetheless. 😉

Leah, that we first met on Easy Magic as Mallory’s best friend, never expected Mason, the man that caused her the biggest heartbreak of her life six years prior, to come back to her life. Even less when the reason for his comeback is revealed, and it’s evident that his return isn’t exactly by his own resolution. But just when they think this imposed adventure and reunion may be the perfect way for them to have some closure, let’s just say fortune – and Mason’s aunt – had plans of their own! LOL

“You smell like you want me inside you.”
“Because I do,” she murmurs.
“Soon.” I lick the outer lips of her pussy and grin when she moans. “First, I get to learn you all over again.”
“You’re going to kill me.”
“But what a way to go.”

Mason and Leah’s second chance story was the perfect complement for this favorite series of mine! I can never get enough of the Boudreaux, even if indirectly, though it was great to see Mallory again. I really wish we got a bit more sight into their happy ending, with an epilogue, but as per KP’s usual, I’m hoping we will get one more glimpse of them in the next book. Easy Fortune really is the perfect tale to devour in a couple of hours, thanks to Kristen’s delicious and amazing writing, and the perfect way to sweeten our appetite for what’s to come. Savannah and Ben are almost here!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“There are a million reasons that I love you, and I plan to spend the rest of my life listing all of them for you.”

Synopsis

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.

Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

Excerpt

“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?”
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”
“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side.
“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”
“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”
“Am I?”

 

 
 

Header Until Sage

OMG!!! Can’t believe Sage’s story is finally here! Seems like forever since we got the first glimpse into these two’s story in Until Jax, and I’ve been counting down the days until I could get my grabby hands in this book, meanwhile I got even more curious every time we got another tiny snippet in every Until series book from then until now. I have to say all the wait was worth it, Until Sage was pure Aurora Rose Reynolds classic – we get the Until November feel, the first and for me still one (if not the) best of hers – that I adore so much, and irrefutable proof of way she is not of my all time favorite authors.

Sage and Kimberly had an instant attraction, from the very first second they laid eyes on one another. Physical attraction was the first impact, and no wonder, because by Kim’s description of Sage, even I was drooling. 

Hot is the only word filtering through my head as I take him in.

I was wrong; hot isn’t the right word. I don’t think there’s one in the English language to properly describe him.

I have to take a second here to say kudos to the author, because that cover! Oh boy, besides being in total cover lust with it’s gorgeousness, the model fits Sage’s description perfectly! One of my favorite covers this year, it’s been on my mind since I got the first sighting, and I could be happier with how true it fitted the character. 

Back to Sage and Kim’s story, their meeting was unexpected and created feeling in both of them that they couldn’t ignore, but Kim was spot on when she says that a man like Sage could break her heart.

I would normally say no to any kind of anything with a man who looks like him. A man who looks like he has the ability to break your heart with one smile. But there is something telling me that if I pass up his invitation, I will regret it for the rest of my life.

And I’m not spoilering it for you, because if you read the previous books, you know that after their whirlwind first meeting and first twenty four hours where their relationship developed at the speed of light, it all came tumbling down, because of a unfortunate event, and consequently, Sage making the mistake of his life and screwing everything up.

“Did you apologize?”
“Yeah.” I did apologize, but I knew the second I did that it was too late. The sadness I left her with had changed into anger, leaving me no shot at fixing what I broke.
“If she’s important to you, do it again, and again, and again, until she understands you’re sorry. Really fucking sorry,”

And here resides the reason for which, even though I adored this story, I haven’t rated it even higher. The events I was so looking forward to seeing, and the major groveling I was hoping to witness from Sage, are just brushed through, or even skipped. I know we got a glimpse into them in the previous books, but I was hoping to see from the inside of their mind – specially his – the events that caused the rupture, and seeing first hand his insistent groveling- Don’t get me wrong, we still get a bit of those, but not in sufficient depth to satisfy my demand for justice/fairness. Ok, you got me, I really wanted to see him crawl for her forgiveness, LOL!

I don’t know of another man who would put their ego aside and do what Sage did. I don’t know of another guy who would care enough to even try to win back someone they barely know.

That being said, rest assured, because he did grovel some, and his insistence and the final gesture that finally begun to restore her trust and allowed her to give him a change was epic and SO swoon worthy!

I had already known I cared about her before, but when I heard she was dead, my heart stopped beating, making me realize even though we hardly know each other, my heart had at some point claimed her as its own.
Gritting my teeth, I look down at the woman in my arms. It’s too soon for me to make my intentions clear, especially with everything that has happened, but she is mine, and will be until the day I die if I get my way.

Sure, him always being certain of his feelings for her, and her role in his life and future helped his case a lot, making mine and Kim’s heart melt with his charm, love and care. He knew she was his Boom, his future. Of that he was certain!

It’s not about his hands or his mouth on me. It’s his presence that affects me. He has the ability to become the sun I so desperately need in order to survive, and I’m afraid if I allow myself to feel all that warmth, when he’s gone, I won’t be able to live in the shadows.

They were equally drawn to one another, their chemistry was undeniable, even in her hurt, Kim was well aware of it, and never doubted his power over her, her body and heart. But what she didn’t know was that his feelings run as deep as hers. That for him, she was THE ONE. 

“It was you. You ruined me for anyone else. You didn’t even know you were doing it, but did it all the same.”

Now, Sage just had to prove to her, show her, and make her see how he saw her himself. That she was everything to him. That Kim was HIS!

Seeing those boots, I know going slow just went out the fucking window. I want her. No… want is too tame a word. I fucking need her.

So fucking beautiful. So fucking perfect. All fucking mine.

See what I mean by classic Aurora Rose Reynolds?! Sage was pure Alpha deliciousness at its best! The favorite kind of Romance hero there is for yours truly, and ARR’s are just the perfect combo! Truly irresistible!

God, I will never tire of this. I will never get tired of his weight on top of me and his strength surrounding me. Really, I know I will never get tired of him.

Add to all that alpha manliness, some wickedly naughty and steamy HOT sexy moments along with one seriously panty-melting dirty mouth and this is one story set to get you hooked from the very beginning until the next book’s teaser. 

Getting down on my knees, I spread her open and blow across her wet sex.
 “Sage.”

Synopsis

Quinn Evans knew Jenna Davis was the woman for him the moment he spotted her. Five years, a stint in the military, and the longest engagement in the history of mankind hasn’t changed his mind.

It’s a good thing there are only three months to go until their wedding because he’s about ready to toss her over his shoulder for a quick ceremony at the courthouse. But when she turns up missing, all bets are off as he races the clock to rescue his bride… and their unborn child.

Excerpt

“Here, you need to stay hydrated,” I instructed gently as I held out the beverage. She took it with a roll of her eyes but tipped it to her lips. With her head back, the long column of her throat was exposed and it was sexy as hell. My girl was more fucking gorgeous every day. When she’d drunk the last of her water, I sat down on the plush, emerald green couch and lifted her into my lap.

“Baby—” I started.

“I haven’t even had a second to process this, Quinn,” she interrupted. She buried her face in her hands and groaned. “How the fuck did this even happen?”

“Well, when a man and a woman—” I broke off with a laugh when Jenna smacked my bicep.

“That’s not what I mean and you know it, smartass. We’ve been careful. . .haven’t we?”

Clearly, Jenna hadn’t realized how many times we’d fucked without a condom since I’d been home. If she had asked me to put one on, I would have. I would give her anything. But she’d been too caught up in our passion to notice, and I had no problem taking full responsibility for that.

I’d been determined to knock her up as soon as the ink was dry on our marriage license anyway. The only thing that would’ve made me happier than knowing she was carrying our child would’ve been to have a wedding band on her finger. I lifted her hand to my mouth and kissed the solitary engagement ring.

“I hate knowing the mother of my child isn’t bound to me completely. I’m ecstatic to be a husband and dad.” I couldn’t help grinning like a lunatic.

Jenna laughed when she clocked my expression. “You’re too damn adorable, Quinn. How am I supposed to resist you?”

My grin widened even further. “You’re not.” My mouth crashed down over hers, and I kissed her deeply until we were both panting with need. “Why even try?”

 

Header From This Day Forward

A new Fiona Davenport’s is here, and a Sex & Vows novella to boot – one of my fav series -, so I twice as happy!

In From This Day Forward, Fiona gives us the beautiful story of Jenna,  I’m Yours, Baby Weston’s sister, and the handsome and very alpha, Quinn.

These ladies, gave us their usual victorious formula in this light-hearted, super sweet and über steamy story, where we pass superficially by their very first meeting and the first years into their relationship where they were some time apart, each developing their professional future, and come to focus on their present life on the verge of their big day, the most anticipated wedding. 

I love seeing this established couples stories – Sex & Vows novellas – that give us more an insight into their love story, and how their fit their ever growing romance with their every day lives. And these two were so incredibly realistic characters, that we feel their emotions and daily events like our own. Add to that some crazy HOT sex scenes, one smoking hot alpha with plenty of caveman traits, and hint of suspense, and you have this delicious novella to read in one sitting! Pure smutty deliciousness! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“You don’t even know me.”
Unable to resist the temptation of her pale, creamy skin, I ran the back of my hand down her soft cheek. “Not your name, but I knew you the second I laid eyes on you.”
“You can’t possible know anything about me!” she scoffed.
I cupped her face in my palms and stared into those green depths, seeing the other half of my soul.
“I know you’re mine. That’s all I need to know.”

Bailey_TooHardtoForget_MM

Synopsis

This time, she’s calling the shots.

Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he’s been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy’s determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she’ll finally be able to move on.

In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.

Excerpt

“I don’t know, Peggy.” He whirled on her, closing in until she was forced back onto the desk. “I had an All-American on my squad this morning and now I don’t. That’s all I know.” He pointed a finger toward the window. “I solve problems down on the field. Saving people isn’t my job.”

Saving people. God, there was such a wealth of regret and pain in those two words. But he couldn’t hear it and she couldn’t address it. Letting him know she saw right through his façade to the hurt beneath might force Elliott to close himself off. “You didn’t always limit yourself. Why are you doing it now?”

“Accepting things that can’t be changed isn’t a limitation. It’s realistic.”

“But how will you know if something can’t be changed unless you try?”

“When it comes to certain things, Peggy, trying leads to losing.” He was in her face now, the mint from his toothpaste familiar and inviting where it slid over her lips. “And I don’t lose.”

No one ever stood up this man but her, and she wouldn’t be cowed now. “No? You’re out a receiver.” She hitched herself up on his desk. “I’d call that a loss.”

The tips of his shoes met Peggy’s, his hands gripping the furniture on either side of her hips. “Who do you think you are, little girl? Coming into my office and telling me what I’ve done wrong?” His eyes were brilliant in their vexation, the attraction he was trying so hard to fight. “Where do you get the goddamn bravery?”

“The bravery is what you liked best about me,” she breathed, heat sizzling in a downward V toward her thighs. “Isn’t it?”

“No. That bravery is what almost led to my downfall.” His hands found her bottom, jerking her to the edge of the desk. “I resented it. Still do.”

“Liar,” Peggy whispered, easing her thighs wider. “You’re dying for an excuse to head for another downfall.” When her legs were as open as she could spread them, she leaned up to Elliott’s ear and let her breath shake loose. “One thrust.”

Elliott’s right hand came up out of nowhere, molding over Peggy’s mouth as his hips crowded into the notch of her legs. With a quick maneuver to recline her halfway back, Elliott’s erection found the apex of her thighs, delivering an aggressive pump against her underwear that sent a scream climbing up Peggy’s throat, only to be trapped by his hand. Knees jerking up out of reflex over the rush of sensation, an orgasm almost—almost— broke past the surface, sending her waters rippling out on all sides. Her legs wanted to hug Elliott’s waist, her voice wanted to beg for one more, one more, one more, but he shook his head, denying her, even though his gaze was hot, a low groan issuing from his harshly masculine mouth.

He leaned in and nipped the lobe of her ear. “Next time, ask for two.”

 

Header Too Hard To Forget

Boy, oh boy, Tessa Bailey sure created a challenging and surprising read in Too Hard To Forget, guaranteed to touch some readers’ hard limits but SO worth the risk!

For those of you that, like me, know and love the Clarkson family from the previous installments, Peggy is the baby sister. The apparently bubbly, confident, sassy and so full of life, young woman, is the living proof that appearances aren’t always what they seem, but even her own distant mother knew her daughter’s contrasting personality facets hid a immense pain and hurt that went beyond their family issues.

Peggy the bombshell. Peggy the liar. Peggy the mediator. Peggy the grief-stricken. The angel. The devil. The baby. The old soul.

And right she was, because Peggy hid a great secret, one that cause her pain like no other – a secret relationship, three years prior, and a shattered heart by the only men she ever loved, Elliott – so that she was decided, in this trip, to solve that, once and for all, so that she could hope to truly move on and find a her happy ending.

Love, or even the illusion of it, wouldn’t be happening anytime soon, though. Not until she accomplished her mission in Cincinnati.

Peggy was then a woman on a mission. One she would achieve no matter what.

Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans! LOL! Yes, she had a good game plan, but she forgot to account for their insane chemistry and her body and hearts’ pull to Elliott.

Her libido was just confused. That had to be all.
If nothing else, that confusion was another reminder that she’d come to Cincinnati to steal back the love she’d given Elliott. To bury the past and move on with a clear mind and heart.

Denial sure is a powerful thing! Rest assured because Elliott’s tops hers off by a mile. Coming from an extremely religious background, Elliott was already leaving with a huge amount of guilt and remorse due to his wife’s recent death, so when Peggy, a young and beautiful college student crosses his path and creates in him a world of feelings he never before felt – want, lust and even love – and to a level he could never foresee or deal with. So, when at a crossroad presented itself, he chose to hurt Peggy in such a way, that would drive her away from his life forever. Thinking it was for her best, he had no idea that Peggy never moved on and was so stuck in the past that she would do anything to get rid of the strings that attached her heart to Elliott’s.

“Did you come back here to make my life hell, Peggy?” he growled. “Answer me honestly. Because you’re succeeding.”
“You always did equate me with hell, didn’t you?” she said, almost to herself, before she seemed to snap back to the here and now. “You’re tripping if you think I would drive all the way from California just to bother you, Elliott.”

Things didn’t quite go as expected, for either of the parts, when Peggy came back into Elliott’s life. Old feelings are brought to light, old wounds reopened and new ones created. Add a teenage daughter to the mix, a brother and best friend living in a denial of their own, and their scorching attraction, Too Hard To Forget was a rollercoaster ride! 

“Bet you love knowing that sliver of stomach you showed me today in the car made it necessary to jerk off in my office with the door locked.”

Peggy’s return really was a two edged sword, he both loved and hated what they had, and had to face that he needed to come to peace with his guilt and past. That proved to be a long and hard task, but Elliott overcame it, and realized his failures and that he needed Peggy, she was not his downfall but his lifeline.

“Done. It’s mine now, Peggy. I made us go without one another for three years and these failures are mine. They were mine when they happened. And they’re mine now.”

Obviously, because Tessa always gives us the good stuff – aka – HEA -, eventually they both cleared out their pain, and made peace with their decision, but in the meanwhile we got so smoking HOT, off-the-charts, tension filled, sex scenes, that caught even yours truly – and considering I’m the farthest from prude – of guard and even a bit irked. I know, I know, I never thought I would say this because come on, Tessa is the Queen of Dirty Talk, and I love every single word coming out of her heroes mouth, but in Elliot she took it to a whole new level, and there was one single element  – which I will not describe, so that I don’t spoil it for any of you – in their sex scenes that didn’t sit quite well with me. Don’t get me wrong, I still devoured them, like the pervy I confess to be, but if that hadn’t been there it would have been perfect for me.
Too Hard Too Forget really was an incredible, refreshing and surprising second chance romance story. True to Tessa’s books, it was beautifully written, deep character development, and ALL the feels!!! And dear Lord, I CAN’T wait for Belmont and Sage’s story! I’m almost sure he will go straight to my all time best boyfriend list! Anxiously counting down the days here!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“A fool is the kind of man who pushes away someone who makes him laugh. Makes him think. Makes him want to try harder and love harder and live harder. Live at all. That’s what Peggy Clarkson did for me. Twice in my life. Twice more than I earned. And this heart she woke up inside me loves her. It’ll beat for her until it stops altogether.”

Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

Synopsis
 

Truth Alan Reacher was a biker. He was a bladesmith. What he was not, was a fool.

The moment he walked in on his girl screwing his cousin on his bike, he does the only thing he can do.

He ditches the bike seat—and the girl—riding right out of her life without a backwards glance.

That is until he’s forced to attend the marriage of his cousin to his cheating ex-girlfriend.  The only bright spot of the entire thing was watching some chick go off on the groom—the groom’s ex-fiancé—right in the middle of the bouquet toss.

***

Verity Ruthann Cassidy was supposed to be here today attending this wedding as the bride, not watching the festivities as a guest from the chairs she’d painstakingly purchased covers for while her fiancé—now her ex-fiancé—screwed around on her with another woman.

The icing on the wedding cake that she refuses to eat? She’s forced to attend the wedding due to her mother being the wedding planner.

However, the night doesn’t turn out quite the way she expects it due to the hot-as-hell biker sitting in the chair directly beside her. The man gave one hell of a speech during the reception that sounded like something that could have come straight out of her own mouth, and she enjoyed every single second of it.

***

Thrown together under similarly lousy circumstances, the two newly single jilted former lovers of the happy couple decide to go to Vegas on what was to be Verity’s honeymoon trip.

One thing leads to another, and the next thing they know, their night has gone from a celebration of being single to a marriage—to each other.

Verity and Truth now have to figure out if everything that happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas.

“Son of a Beard is one WILD, ACTION-PACKED RIDE!”– Dani Hodge

Header Son of a Beard

“One man’s used up slut is another man’s brand new bride.”

Is this or is this not one of the best opening lines EVAH?! Best best-man speech ever!!! LMFAO

Lani Lynn Vale sure gave us one hell of a ride with Son of a Beard!!! Of course with a tricky premise like this one, it was set to be one surprising story, and that it was!

Truth caught the surprise of a lifetime when he arrived home and caught his live in ‘girlfriend’ screwing his cousin on his bike. Mind you, his shock and rage wasn’t for the woman herself but for his bike! That says all about their ‘relationship’ and what she meant to him. The desecration of his precious bike was the big issue!

My bike meant the world to me, and I hadn’t been able to sit on it without thinking about them since then.

Verity’s situation with her cheating fiancée (the one caught screwing Truth’s girlfriend) was even worse, specially with the way she was confronted by the situation. Poor woman.

But well there is always a silver lining, and theirs is their meeting in the wedding from hell. And a second one, that EPIC best man speech!

And boy, oh boy was that a meeting, the attraction was immediate and they sure took advantage of the crappy situation they were on. Their bodies demanded it so!

I wasn’t normally so slutty, but hell, if you saw this man, you’d have jumped at the chance to do him, too!

Of drunken trip to Las Vegas and their life would never be the same! 

Truth was the very personification of hermit, all he wanted was his life of solitude with his blacksmith trade but when fate again brought Verity to his doorstep, she ended up blowing that all away. 

I’m with her, what is so damn sexy about a sweaty hot man pounding metal to submission? I don’t know, but I totally got her. Irresistible!!!

“Bladesmith,” he muttered, still not taking his eyes off of what he was hammering.  “Different set of training, and different set of skills are required to do the two.”

He was just as intrigued by her, with her proper facade, but out of the boy personality. Verity was everything he craved and never dreamt he wanted.

God, she sounded so prim and proper that I wanted to strip the pants from her lower half and fuck that proper right out of her.

And rock her world he did, but definitely not as much as she rocked his. They were the perfect match, and sarcastic, witty and sassy lines between them, more than prove it.

“You don’t have any time for you?” he tilted his head to study me.
He was now leaning against my GG’s china cabinet, and I realized how out of place he looked in front of it.
“I blow.”
He blinked.
“That’s good news, I guess,” he drawled.

LOL, this sure was one of Lani’s most hilarious couple. Verity really brought Truth’s best features to light, and I loved every single second of it!

“Didn’t realize you let women fight your battles, Son.” Truth’s father backed away, taking a hold of his wife’s arm. “Though I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that you can’t handle your business.”
“I can handle my business,” Truth said, leaning back into his chair. “It’s just sexier when she does it for me.”

Don’t get me wrong, Truth isn’t by any means perfect. There was one moment there when he was trying to push her away, that he said some horrible things to Verity – even though he had his reason for it – so bad that I wanted to nut punch him, but after a away she could see way he had done it, and ended up fighting for him. I wish it had been him taking the first step (ok, he tried) for their reconciliation, but it also proved to us what a strong and intelligent woman she is. 

Certainly all the HOT sex had something to do with her fast forgiveness, I’m sure. These two were explosive together!

“You feel so fucking good, baby. Like a dream,” I rasped, sweeping my lips up the line of her jaw.

It was incredible to revisit all the previous couples, and their women insight on their men really was spot on. Perfect description for these Dixie Wardens Rejects MC men!

“But there’s this thing about the man you love,” she whispered, not caring that the man she loved was standing at her back, listening to every word. “They can drive you insane, but at the end of the night, when you’re in their arms, everything that was wrong with that day ceases to exist.”

Son of a Beard really was a kick ass ride. Action packed, hilarious ROFL moments and amazing character and relationship development from start to finish. Lani Lynn Vale never let’s us down (ok, maybe a little, because I NEED to know Ghost’s identity!!!), and this book and series is yet another proof of her immense talented in creating unforgettable stories. Can’t wait for Jessie James story! Actually I want ALL of the rest of the gang’s books like, yesterday!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“I trust you completely, Truth. With my heart and with my body,” she whispered.  “You’re a good man.”

But, most of all, I loved how he loved me.  Without limits. He didn’t care that anyone thought he was whipped or too attentive to me. He only cared about what he and I thought, and that was everything.

Synopsis

In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

Excerpt

I should tell Quinn and Clay that he’s here. But one look at him and it’s like the last ten years have never passed and I’m back at the bonfire, the awkward high schooler uncomfortable in her own skin. Marching away from him in the woods. It was the last time I saw him. How is it possible that he can affect me this much after all this time?

He hasn’t noticed me, not with his head bowed, so I quickly turn around and focus on Pastor John as he finishes up his prayer. Him being here means nothing. I should be happy that I remember the pain from that night so well, it will make keeping my walls up around him so much easier.

“On behalf of the Davis family, I want to thank everyone for coming today. At this time, the family has asked for some time alone as they say their good-byes. They wanted me to remind everyone that the PieHole will be opening up for a few hours tonight starting at five for anyone that wishes to join them.”

I keep my arm around Quinn, not looking back to where I saw Maverick. I can hear the church slowly emptying and I feel a frown pull at my lips. I had hoped that when everyone started to leave that he would have come up front to be with his family, but so far, the pew we’re in is still empty save for the three of us. We sit and wait for everyone to leave, something that Clay had asked Pastor John to make arrangements for in place of the customary recessional, knowing that no one in this town would really mean a word of it anyway. Plus, I know Quinn is having a hard time. Regardless of the fact that she wasn’t the closest with her father, she was really counting on this—Maverick home. She’s still shaking in my arms, but when I look over at Clay I realize his silence isn’t because of the heaviness of Buford’s death, but instead anger over his brother’s absence that has started to build to a boil. I fear that he’s seconds away from tipping over the edge.

I stand when Clay and Quinn do, but hang back at the edge of the row we had been sitting in as they meet Pastor John and gather their father’s ashes. I can’t wait to get out of these heels. If it would have been acceptable to wear my boots, I would have, but Quinn would have killed me. As it is, I feel like I can’t take a deep breath with how tight my dress is against my chest. I never wear tight shirts. I haven’t since my boobs became beasts of their own right. I’m too busy fiddling with the straps of my dress, trying desperately to get some of the pressure against my chest to ease up so I could take a deep breath, when I heard Quinn gasp.

“Mav!” Next thing I know she’s running past where I’m standing, her black hair streaming in the air behind her as she speeds forward right into her brother’s arms. Clay moves to stand next to me and I look up to meet his green eyes, the questions he isn’t vocalizing dancing in their emerald depths. He’s not stupid and I’m doing a crappy job at hiding the memories haunting me right now. He gives me a small smile, shifting his hold on the urn to wrap his free arm around me and pulls me into a strong hold.

“You’re shakin’,” he says against my temple and I just nod.

“I’m good, Clay. Go see your brother.”

“I’m fine right where I am, sugar.”

I keep my eyes to the ground, focusing on his worn boots instead of looking up, hating myself for making this moment about me when I should be focused on them. Like it or not, I can’t fight the feelings that being near him bring me. I’m that stupid, naive sixteen-year-old all over again. “Let’s get out of here,” he says after a few silent seconds. I look up and give him a smile, hoping that it looks a hell of a lot braver than I feel. Inside I feel like I might puke.

“You think I could have a second with my family?”

My head shoots up at the coldness I hadn’t anticipated in Maverick’s voice. He’s not focused on me, though, instead looking at his brother with a hard expression and one brow raised upward.

“Mav!” Quinn gasps and he moves his attention from his brother to her.

“Sorry, Quinn, but I’m thinkin’ that Clay’s lady friend would understand that this should be a moment for our family and give us time alone.”

“I’ll just—”

“Don’t you dare finish that sentence, sugar,” Clay all but spits through clenched teeth and drops his arm to take a step forward. “You’ve got something to say, Mav, then say it.”

“Nothing to say, Clayton, I just think it would be nice for your girlfriend to give us some space.”

“My girlfriend,” he parrots sarcastically, his deep voice vibrating in anger.

“Mav.” Quinn attempts to butt in, but stops when Maverick leaves her side and turns to stalk out of the church. I should find it comical that he obviously didn’t recognize me, or hell, maybe he did and he’s just picking up where he left off ten years ago in the middle of the dark woods. I take a deep breath. “It’s okay. He’s right. Y’all need some time as a family. I’ll head over to the PieHole and start settin’ up for tonight.”

Quinn brushes a tear from her cheek and just shakes her head. I look at Clay to see him staring in the direction that his brother just left.

“You’re family,” he finally says, not looking in my direction.

“Clay, really, it’s okay. It’s been a long time since y’all were back together and I don’t need to be there for that reunion. It sucks that it takes all of this to finally bring him home, but he’s here and y’all need to make up for a lot of time lost.”

“Shut up, Leighton.”

“Don’t, Clay.”

“Don’t what? You’ve got every right to be here. You’re just as much a part of our family as he is. Hell, maybe even more so than he is at this point. So just shut up, come with us, and ignore him.”

I shake my head, the fight instantly leaving my sails, knowing I would be arguing until the end of time if I

pressed this issue.

“I can’t believe he doesn’t even recognize you,” Quinn whispers.

 

 

Header Lost Rider

Awww… Harper Sloan really gave us all the feels in this western inspired second chance romance!

I completely fell in love not only with the main characters, but all the story setting and the secondary characters, and that is saying a lot because second chance romance, as most of you know is normally not my thing, but the way Harper wrote it really captivated me and touched my heart.

Maverick and Leighton have known each other since she came into this world, and always shared a unexplainable connection, that was evident for everyone surrounding them, and even themselves, though they didn’t fully acknowledge it. But life is a bumpy road, as they, even at very young age find out, because not all the love and care can sometimes erase a life of pain, and that was what Maverick had been suffering all this childhood, which made in see no solution but to try to escape – I will not reveal all his motives, because that would ruin your ride, of course -, and for that he had to hurt the one good thing in his life, Leighton.

Young girl that she was, she never saw that her feeling were indeed reciprocated, so when Maverick decide to leave and cut all roots, she naturally couldn’t see beyond her own pain, and never again let herself get close enough to risk her heart again.

Fast forward ten years (the very start of the book) and Maverick, being somewhat forced to come back home, let’s just say he really arrived like a enraged bull in a china shop! Oh boy, was he an a major @sshole!!! But fear not, because the cowboy more than redeems himself, and it only that a very, very short time for his attitudes to awake Leigh’s feistiness and she more than is up to task to kick his butt into gear, maybe with a ‘pie-cide’ or two to the mix! LOL

This explosive clash was sure turn in a blink of an eye into sexual charged explosion, and lordy, were they hot for one another!

He needs to stop calling me that or I’ll be putty in his hands. Is there anything sexier than a deep southern drawl uttering the word “darlin’ ”? Nope—there isn’t, which is why he needs to stop that immediately.

So very true, no woman can really resist to a good southern darlin’, specially when that comes from you soulmate cowboy, which was Leighton’s case, but old wounds and a ten years of hurt don’t just blow up in the air, and her mind starts to war with her body.

I forget about everything that has ever happened between us.
My anger. His anger. It all just vanishes and it’s as if he never left.

And here is where Maverick really stood out as a amazing romantic hero, because he really opened his heart and his life to her, revealing every single thing about his past that made him leave, and he proved that he really had no choice, because staying would be dying.

No matter how much I truly did want her back then, I knew I had to cut the ties that connected our hearts.

Maverick really was a dreamy male MC, we could feel in his every thought how much Leigh meant for him, how much he loved her and thought he was doing what was best for her by leaving, even if it killed him to stay away. Since forever he craved her more than anything.

All she had to do was walk into a room and I forgot it all.
I forgot because she became the only thing I wanted more than my need to chase my dreams. The only thing I craved more than escaping.
(…)
Only now I know that those dreams meant nothing without her to share them with. I gave up one thing to chase the other, and right now I’m just praying I’m not too late to fix the mistakes of my past.

For me, he more than redeemed himself, and he fought like hell to have his girl’s love back, the thing that he wanted and craved more than anything to survive.

I didn’t know what I would be comin’ home to, but I knew that I damn sure wouldn’t spend another day regrettin’ the mistakes of my actions. Not when I have the power to do somethin’ about it now. A chance.”

Yes, I’m sorry but I have to say it, because he really took the bull by the horns and did everything in his power to win Leigh. He knew it was the fight of a lifetime.

Settled in for the long run, and it’s gonna last a lot longer than eight seconds. You better believe I’m ridin’ this out with you until you buck me off. And darlin’, there hasn’t been a ride I’ve ever been more prepared for.”

I want you, Leigh. I want what’s inside of you that has always pulled me in and made me feel like I was the only man in the world.

And he sure made her feel like she was the only woman he the world. She was all he could see, the center of his universe.

She was my compass when I was lost without direction.
She was the pull I always felt to come home but never had the balls to try, knowing that it might be too late.
She was my biggest regret, but she will be my biggest accomplishment—God willing.

Once she truly let go, and embraced everything he had to offer it was just as beautiful to see/read as it was his battle. Their mutual love and devotion shone through for anyone to see. A true companionship and love beyond measure! 

He’s stronger.
I’m stronger.
Together I just know we’ll be unbreakable.

It really was an amazing love story and Maverick and Leighton stole my heart. This Coming Home series, with this incredible first installment, went straight to my favorite series, and after the glimpse we had of the rest of the Davis siblings, and fantastic setting, and story development, I can’t wait to see what Harper gives us next with Kiss My Boots, Quinn’s story! <3 <3 <3 <3

“I love you, Maverick Austin Davis. I loved you then. I love you now. I’ll love you always.”
There it is. All of her. And finally, with that, I’ve found all of me.
 “I, God,” I breathe, closing my eyes while her words wash over me before opening them again. “I love you right back, Leighton. Loved you then. Love you always.”

No . . . ridin’ doesn’t define me anymore. Not when I’ve got the love of the woman made for me. She gave me me back, and in the process, I gained everything.

Synopsis

The reclusive Ian barely participates in life, only doing so when his powers demand that he use them or pay the consequences. It seems that there’s not a single person on this planet who doesn’t want something from him, but the pain and suffering of others is nearly unbearable at times, leaving him no choice but to act.

That is until Wink unwittingly walks into his life, completely unaware that she’s stepped straight into the dragon’s den.
Wink is just trying to get home after a long day of work. Her plans for the evening do not include stumbling upon a man with blood on his hands hovering over a dead woman in her hallway.

There are three things that someone in Wink’s position should’ve done in that instance.
1. Slowly back away from the hot, bearded killer and run the other way.
2. Call the cops.
3. Not come back until the scene was safe.

Instead, she stops, takes a picture—drawing the man’s attention to her—and then takes off at the speed of a fat, blind and possibly intoxicated penguin.

Ian tries to let her go, but the moment that she runs, every single one of his predatory instincts surge to the surface and the hunt is on. Ian always catches his prey, this time is no different. What is different is that, for the first time in his life, he is consumed with the need to keep his catch.

Excerpt

She sniffled, and I looked up sharply.

And to my horror, I saw the first tear slip down one cheek.

Another tear soon followed.

“You’re crying?” I asked in outrage.

I didn’t handle tears well.

There was something about them that had the power to undo me.

“You can ignore me,” she said. “It’s just hormones.”

“Hormones?” I asked.

“You know…hormones. It’s that time of the month. It just happens,” she said flippantly.

“So there’s no reason for the tears…you’re just doing it,” I observed.

She nodded.

“It happens. A lot. Sometimes I cry because I need to, like after I’ve seen a sad video on YouTube. Or sometimes I hear a song that I really like, and the beauty of it moves me to tears,” she explained.

“So you’re crying now, not because anything’s amiss, but because you’re a girl,” I said. “Do I have that correct?”

She shrugged, causing me to sigh.

“That means nothing to me. If you’re going to speak girl, you’re going to have to give me a cheat guide or something. I never had a single female in my life, besides my sister, and that was a very long time ago,” I told her.

She glared at me, the tears gone.

“You’re not very nice,” she observed.

I knew that.

I couldn’t help it, either.

“I was raised in an orphanage,” I said. “I have absolutely no tact. If you want hearts and flowers, you’re going to have trouble getting that from me.”

“Who says that I want that from you?” she challenged. “I’ve only known you for a very short period of time. Not even long enough to form a valid opinion of you or your character.”

I sighed.

“Did you look in a mirror yet?” I asked her.

She stiffened and squirmed.

“No,” she lied.

My brows rose.

“You didn’t?” I asked. “Not even a little bit?”

She was cute when she lied.

Her nose had a small upturn to it, meaning I knew exactly when she started to lie because a little crease would appear on the bridge of her nose as she concentrated on what to say.

“Fine,” she snarled. “What’d you do to me?”

I laughed.

“I have no fucking clue,” I said honestly. “Magic, I guess.”

She pursed her lips in disgust.

“Seriously?” she asked. “That’s all you’ve got? Magic?”

I shrugged.

“I don’t know what else to call it,” I told her.

“Prove it,” she challenged.

 
Header Oh My Dragon

 Oh, my Dragon, the third installment of Lani Lynn Vale’s amazing PNR series, I Like Big Dragons, tells us the story of Ian, the broodiest and most reclusive of the dragon riders, and Wink, a struggling artist.

Let’s just say they had a hell of a first meeting, when she encounters the dark and handsome stranger over her dead neighbor’s body! Well, even in that particular situation, she couldn’t help but notice him, lol!   

This man was gorgeous. I’m talking so fucking handsome that it hurt to look at him for too long.
And his eyes. God, they were practically sucking me into his soul!

What she has no idea is that she isn’t that much of a stranger to him – and here resided my biggest hung up with their story, I understood his reasoning to stay away from her, but it lasted far too long, specially from the moment he realized she was his mate, that being say, that is off page and he was indeed a broken man with a hurt soul since his childhood. Since the very first book in the series I was drawn to his quiet and sad persona, and here we got to see deep within his mind, why he was the way he was.

It felt wrong, like my heart hurt, and I didn’t want anything to do with that. When the heart became involved, things never worked out right.

So, he learn very young to try to distance himself from others, specially the ones he loved, in a way to protect them, and deep down, himself too. But when he was caught of guard and had to touch Wink, therefore cementing their connection as mates, he had no chance but let go of that hurt and fear, and let himself feel. And Wink as SO awesome, because she was attracted to him because of his personality, not despite of it.

“You damn well know exactly what I want,” she said. “I want you to fuck me. If I wanted slow and sweet, I would’ve found some other man. I know you don’t do slow and sweet.”

Ok, enough of the darker subject  – and he wasn’t just dark, as he reveals very early on – because this story is so much more then that. As per Lani’s fashion, she gave us a tone of hilarious moments, a lot with the kickass secondary characters,

“What’d you name her?” Blythe asked, a sleeping baby against her chest.
 “Creepy.”
“That’s not too bad,” Keifer mumbled. “Mine’s named ‘Little Fucker’.”

And some explosively HOT sex scenes! Ian really is the perfect example that the quiet ones really are the worst, in the best possible way, that is. Check out this epic quote, it’s the written proof of how deliciously naughty he was!

“You want me?” I asked her.
“I want your mouth.”
“Where?” I persisted.
 “On me.”  She widened her legs, letting me see the wetness between her legs. It was so copious that it slickened her thighs.
“Come ride my beard then, baby.” I continued to work my cock, slower now than I had been doing it before. She smiled at me timidly, her bravado fading.
“Now,” I ordered. “Use my beard like your own personal saddle.”

I really need to emphasize their sexual attraction, and their bedroom talk, because I feel that I should warn all of you so you are truly ready for this level of heat. I loved every delicious word out of his mouth!

“Oh darn,” she whispered brokenly. “I’m going to fucking hell.”
 I laughed at her succulent words. “There’s going to be fucking, but I doubt hell will be involved unless too many orgasms is your version of hell.”

Oh, My Dragon, like LLV’s other books is a fast pace, well written, sensible and passionate story, in this incredibly thought out paranormal universe, that hooks you from the start and you devour in one sitting, specially for a Lani Lynn Vale addict, like yours truly. It was so good to revisit some the characters of the previous books as well as see some of the upcoming ones – at least I hope so! -, because I can’t wait to read Jean Luc ( I’m a sucker for a good accent) and Mattie’s story! <3 <3 <3 <3 

“I love you,” I told her. “All of you.”
(…)
“I love you,” she whispered.

Synopsis

Alisha

My story isn’t a very conventional one. I met my man online, which isn’t a shocking thing nowadays.

I sure didn’t know that he would rescue me from hell.

I had been stuck in hell with no way out. Then Techy swooped in with guns blazing and took me out of there. A knight in shining leather.

I didn’t expect to feel what I feel; that I would fall in love, that I would feel safe and protected.

I had never felt that before.

Until Techy.

Techy is a member of the Devil’s Souls MC, the most notorious MC in Texas. They love hard and fight harder. You mess with their family, hell is something you’d beg for.

Shit hits the fan when someone from my past comes to get what my dead father never gave back to him.

My name is Alisha and this is my story.

Techy

A man is after my woman.

He won’t be a man much longer.

He dares to try and take her from me?

Hell is something he’ll beg for. Because nobody, and I mean nobody, looks in Alisha’s direction in a way I don’t like. If they do? They’ll be eating their teeth.

If you threaten her? Death is an easy way out.

I will do whatever it takes to protect her.

This book has a HEA, with no cheating and a obsessed alpha. If you don’t like instalove this book isn’t for you.

Header Techy

I’ve waiting for Techy since his very first mention on Torch‘s book and now he is here in all is badass gecky glory!

Techy, aka Jordan, and Alisha’s portraits two of my favorite tropes in romance, insta-love/lust and savior/damsel in distress, so right there LeAnn Ashers immediately won me over. She does this type of tales perfectly, given us somewhat of a super HOT modern life fairytale.  

Most of all, I want to love and I want the unconditional love people have in fairytales.

Alisha sure got what she wished for, in spades!

Techy and Alisha first made contact in Torch’s book – but don’t worry, it’s retold here – and they were instantly drawn to one another. Jordan was Alisha’s lifeline to the outside world, after many and many years of abuse and neglect by her parents, specially her father. Techy was captivated by her sweetness and innocence, her inner light, and had no idea the horror she was leaving, so when the situation escalates and he realizes what she has been suffering, he takes care of the situation, in the most ruthless of ways, because to him, she is his. And no one hurts what is his.

Alisha is so innocent, and I’m a selfish bastard. I want her so fucking bad. I wanted her from the moment I saw her.

Alisha is mine. Body, soul, heart—every single part of her is mine. She will always be mine until we die. She is going to be the mother of my kids, my wife.

Jordan did indeed rescue her just in nick of time, becoming truly everything to Alisha. Her real life knight in shining armor – or better yet, a leather covered, tattooed bike rider -, solidifying her feelings for him.  She wanted everything with him, love and lust demanded so, and I loved how the author created here a slow burn in the sexual department, that generated a lot of sexual tension and build up, that made the sex scenes that much scorchingly delicious.

Jordan is a ten, and these men are sixes on a good day. We may be biased, but they are too pretty for us. We like them tattooed and with that bad-boy vibe.

I want more of everything. His touch, his mouth. It’s not enough, and I’m aching.
Down there.

We could say here is where Alisha’s true life starts. Techy wants to show her everything, and to give her the world. She becomes the center of his dark world – and beware of this, because this book really has a quite a bit of graphic descriptive violence to it, so the dark element is certainly there – as much as he becomes hers. His love and devotion really shone through in every moment of the story, and I was touched with his caring and protective nature where she was concerned. They definitely were the perfect match.

“Angel, I don’t deserve you. I don’t deserve any part of you,” he hisses.

 I tear up. I sit up, touching his face. I kiss him on the lips slowly, thoroughly, putting everything I feel into this kiss. “You deserve me. You may think you don’t deserve me, but you have had me from the moment you messaged me. You’ve always have.”

“Angel, you saying this means I am going to marry your ass. I am going to put babies in you. You’re mine forever. You were mine before, but now, it’s time for you to hear it.”

Now, you must be asking yourself why, since I loved so many elements to this story, have I not rated it any higher, and I’ve got to tell it was definitely not because of the enrapturing premise and storyline, but I simply just couldn’t get past, and was a lot of times distracted by it, the heavy amount of inconsistencies thought the plot, timeline, and editing wise – closely similar to the issues I had with the author’s first book- , as well as sometimes, character personality wise, with drastic shifts, specially Alisha. Like I’ve said, it distracted me and stole my attention and the credibility of some parts of the story for me.

But as you also can see by my rating and review, I still enjoyed Techy and all is badass insta-love/lust goodness and will definitely carry on reading the rest of the series, and all other LeAnn books. It’s so rare to find safe MC romance books, and this gives us that in spades. Techy was completely safe! It is mind blowing to see the love, devotion, faithful and protectiveness that these men have for their women.  It totally swoonworthy! So much so that, I can’t wait so see what she gives us with Butch, Vinny and Trey! 

Together forever. I am too fucking selfish to even let her up for air. She is my air. I breathe her every second of the day. She is my everything.

 

He became my protector.
My husband.
The father of my kids.
 My lover.
My shoulder to cry on.
My best friend.
Most of all, he is my heart, my soul.
