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.

Synopsis

Ryder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

Excerpt

Work first. Reward sex next.

  That’ll give me something to look forward to during the next few days. The ones I can’t wait to dive headfirst into that will be an ever-changing combination of stress, exhaustion, strategy, and manipulation. An unscripted dance amongst us bidders while we size each other up, calculate our numbers, and explain to the developer why we’re the most valuable candidate for the job.

  It’s the game I love. The competition I thrive on. My return to the job that I’ve been desperate to make.

  And there’d be no better way to make a statement that Harper Denton is back than to leave this building with the multimillion dollar contract for Meteor Development tucked securely under my arm.

  And just like that, as a reward for my positive thinking, when I look up, there he is, in full view.

  I take in the expensive briefcase, the venti Starbucks, and the expensive watch peeking out from beneath the cuff of his shirt. And just my luck that while I’m afforded a full view of his body, the one thing I’m the most curious about is obscured by his hand holding his cell phone up to his ear: his face.

  So instead I drink him in. He really is magnificent. I note his posture and the way he carries his body when he moves forward a few steps. There’s an air about him that says he’s no-nonsense and in control, powerful, and at the same time he doesn’t seem uptight. He has that Southern     

  California professional vibe. I can’t put my finger on it but he reminds me of someone I can’t quite place. Regardless, a man who can pull off being in control and playful has definite merits.

  Like “spank me until my body aches in want, and then make a game of hitting each erogenous zone with his tongue before he’ll satisfy that ache he created and let me come” type of merits.

   The mind-blowing-sex reward just became even more appealing.

 
 

 

 

Header Sweet Rivalry

Sweet Rivalry is a spin-off of Sweet Cheeks, featuring Ryder, brother of the female main character Saylor. Although there’s this connection this story was created as a standalone. 

Sweet Rivalry is Ryder and Harpers’ short, fun and super sexy story. I love a good enemies to lovers tale, and this is what K. Bromberg gave in this book.

This is Ryder.
My rival.
My supporter.
My crush.

Harper and Ryder have a competitive past amongst themselves. All throughout their MBA and until the very end of it, they were each others biggest adversary (and deep down supporter), but simultaneously bringing up to light their very best.

Now, thirteen years after they are once again on opposing teams on a bidding war, but in more ways than one both are very different from those college years…

“A princess may not need to be saved, but she sure as shit needs to take a ride on that unicorn she’s found every once in a while. He’ll remind her she needs to live instead of staying locked up tight in that tower of hers.”

Despite that, some things never change, and their first instinct when coming face to face with each other is pushing the other until one of them comes on top. But now, more than ever, and given their off the charts sexual attraction, being on top was never more appealling!!!

Whoever said dreams were better flat out lied. Because Ryder is mouthwateringly fine. Breathtakingly sexy.

Since the moment I saw Ryder, I tried to hold true to my mantra—bid first, then reward sex––but I don’t think I ever once believed myself.

OMG, their undeniable physical attraction coupled with their non-stop sexy banter created some smoking HOT moments. It was sexual tension so thick you could cut it with a knife, and they absolutely rejoiced in that…

It’s heaven.
And hell.
It’s want mixed with need.
And I can’t warring against more please.
It’s reawakened desire versus self-preservation.

Sweet Rivalry really was a delicious fast little read, that showed once again K. Bromberg incredible writing talent, and amazing theme research  (working on the area I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of some elements). The only points that ended up lacking, in my opinion, were the fact that I felt no true emotional feeling by either of them, but only lust, and that is something I always crave in my romance stories, no matter its length. Fact that was enhanced by the lack of an epilogue or something along those lines that would allow us to look a bit further into their future, and realize there was much more to them than unmeasurable chemistry, something deeper. That being said it, Sweet Rivalry was still an fantastic and enjoyable little treat with kickass and well developed characters. K. Bromberg’s amazing writing in a fun sized package! <3 <3 <3 <3

“May the best man win.” He presses a kiss to my shoulder that makes my stomach flip-flop from the butterfly wings starting to flutter.
“May the best woman win. It’s sexist to assume it’s going to be a man.”

“Wait. That’s bullshit. There’s only one woman bidding.”
“Exactly.”

IMG_2041

Synopsis

Ethan Hades falls into the god category . . . though the myths surrounding Hades are far different than the truth of who he really is. God of the Underworld is just one of his many responsibilities. After spending centuries alone, a scapegoat for anything and everything that goes wrong in the world, he’s given up on life. He gave up on love way before that.

Until one day a woman he can’t ignore walks into his life. They have nothing in common—that she’s mortal being is only one of the many differences between them. Holland Corbin is everything Ethan has been waiting an eternity to find. One problem—she’s hell-bent on keeping him as far away from her as possible and looks at him like he’s the devil himself. Which, okay, she has good instincts.

He might have to move heaven and hell to get her to accept and admit her feelings for him. He might have to forfeit his own infinite existence to be with her. He might have to stand in contempt of the only set of laws he’s ever followed. But he will. He’d give everything to be with her, and he just might be forced to pay that exact price.

He’s damned either way. Might as well go out fighting for the woman he loves.

Excerpt

Somewhere between the myth and reality was where you’d find the truth. But you wouldn’t see it if you weren’t looking, and most people weren’t.

   Most people were content to believe what they wanted to believe, as opposed to the alternative—accepting what was actually real.

   Take me for instance. There was the myth of who I was, and there was the truth. My first name was Ethan—a perfectly everyday name—but it’s not the name I was given at birth. No, that name I used as a last name now, as a reminder of who I was. Not that I could forget. My reputation seemed to precede me in every life I lived, not because people knew who I really was or would believe me if I told them, but because they knew something was different about me. Something was to be avoided.

   They were right.

   “Ethan Hades.”

   So yeah. Bet you didn’t need twenty guesses to figure out who I was—who I really was. Yes, gods were real. No, we weren’t anything like the myths you’d grown up reading in school. Names, places, and rough ideas were about the only details the Greeks had gotten right. The rest was a bunch of fabricated rubbish. I

    rose from the tiny canvas stool that lined the outside of the medical tent, my legs not the least bit tired from holding a chair squat for the past twenty minutes while I’d waited for the new camp doc, who was not earning any points from me since he was running late. I had stuff to do. Stuff that didn’t include waiting on a scrap of fabric that would have been lucky to hold a mortal man of my size. That was another fun fact for the god/goddess trivia book—we weighed significantly more than a mortal the same stature. It had something to do with our bodies being solid muscle, and nothing like the kind of muscle humans possessed. Our muscles were heavier, stronger, and impenetrable—fitting since we were immortal beings.

    I didn’t say anything as the nurse lifted the tent curtain for me. Neither did she. She’d been trying to get into my bed since she’d first started her rotation a few months ago. I’d told her I hadn’t signed up with World Corps, and traveled to third world countries on various outreach missions, to get laid. I’d been nice about it. The first dozen times. The last dozen, I’d been curter with my replies, which might have explained the reason she was looking at me like she wanted to drive a scalpel through my eye.

   Good luck with that. Immortal being. Meaning cannot die. By scalpel to the cornea or any other method.

   Believe me, I’d put it to the test.

   The landscape directly below Frenchman’s Cliff would never be the same. It looked like some meteor had fallen there, carving a crater where the ground had been level before my attempt to challenge my immortal state of being.

 
 
 

Header Ethan Hades

 

Now here was something I had never read until now!!! Kat Austen sure gave us something new and refreshing, because I read PLENTY about history of all Gods in multiple religions, specially this one, of Ancient Greece, but never before in a smutty sweetness point of view, and wasn’t that the most delicious surprise!!!

Ethan Hades is every bit of arrogant and all things HOT that he’s truly entitle to be – he is after all the god of the underworld, lol – but upon meeting the straight laced, pragmatic and workaholic Dr. Holland Corbin, that apparently doesn’t bat an eyelash to him – first time ever for him – let’s just say he’s taken down a peg or two… Ok, not really!!!

He instantly feels that Holland is special to him somehow, and the more he analyzes those feelings the more he realizes that she may be his One! 

There’s just one obstacle, – since he has no doubt that he’ll make Holland fall in love with him, lol – her mortality. But for her he’s willing to give up everything, even his own imortality and power!

Holland of course tried to resist the best she could, but come on, really, it was a lost battle, because it was a lost battle from the start, because honestly, who could resist a freakin’ god?!

It was a deliciously little read, with some of-the-charts, turn-on-your-fans sex scenes and a sugary sweet insta-love story to leave feeling warm and tingly in all the right places. The only down and hence why a didn’t give it my usual Kat Austen five smutty stars, was the question of her mortality against his immortality and how it was solved – or unsolved – in the end. This is after all fiction at its best so instead of that epilogue, that was bittersweet and left me kind of sad, I wanted a full on Happy Ever After in all its glory were all the potential and escapism from our realities was present and these two got something that would reveal the beauty of Romance fiction, a splenderous HEA!

Nonetheless, it was a true, and addictive as usual, Kat Austen fantastic short read! I can’t wait for the next! Are we going to get any more of these gods?! I sure hope so! And maybe will see a bit more of Holland and Ethan?! Fingers crossed!!! 

“What have you been waiting for?”
 His brows knitted together, his look suggesting I was missing something. “You,” he breathed like it was a prayer. “I’ve been waiting for you.”

Synopsis
 

Angie is a survivor.  Anything you could throw at her, she could overcome.

After her father left her like a pile of unwanted trash, she began fighting.  Fighting to build a life. Fighting to keep her child. Fighting to matter.

She thought she had it all figured out.

Then Bowen Race Tannenbaum walks into her life, turning it into a flurry of confusion, hope, and then ultimately despair.  He tore down, brick-by-brick, her carefully constructed world, leaving her heart in tatters and longing for more. Such as a happily ever after, something that wasn’t ever going to happen for her. Not when she couldn’t give him what he wanted.  He’d break her, and she couldn’t be put back together a second time.

Bowe wasn’t always so jaded, but when you keep drawing a losing hand, it tends to affect a man. He didn’t mean to lash out so carelessly. But he was so over being told no. He was done being lied to. He was through with being cheated on.

This time, his heart was getting what it wanted. If Angie wasn’t able to see what he was offering, what was right here in front of her, well then, he’d just have to damn well show her.

Excerpt

I headed toward the yelling. The closer I got, the louder it became.

At first I wasn’t sure what it was. Then the closer I got, the more I realized that it was someone cheering. Some sort of competition from the sound of it.

The moment I rounded the corner of the firehouse, I could see what everyone was cheering and yelling about. 

The firehouse stood on a large hill or sorts, and the moment I cleared the building, I could see down into the valley below the hill, not far, but far enough that I could see over the men’s heads, straight for the obstacle course below.

Bowe had already started his testing.

Feeling like shit that I’d left him with Elise too long, and he’d had to bring her with him, I automatically started scanning for her, and found her with PD.

Once I saw that she was happy, I moved my gaze back to the course, and was amazed by how fast Bowe was moving.

A man was also running with him, and upon closer inspection, I realized it was Booth. 

Booth, I’d heard, held the best time on the course.

And it looked like Bowe was holding his own.

He wasn’t winning, no, but for him being off for so long, I thought he was doing pretty damn good.

Then instead of taking the last flight of stairs with his patient, he jumped over the side, cradling the dummy.

It, of course, wouldn’t work in real life. 

Not with someone that was sick or in need of life saving measures. 

But it worked for now.

Laughing out loud, I yelled.

“Go, Bowe! Go!” I screamed, cupping my hands around my mouth to project the sound further.

He didn’t hear me over the crowd, but my daughter did. 

She turned her head, and immediately started to clap her hands as she realized it was me.

Grinning from ear to ear, I walked towards her, glancing over her shoulder at Bowe as I moved. 

I weaved through the throng of men, some firefighters 

Bowe had just crossed the finish line, Booth very close at his heels, when I reached Elise.

“Hey there, baby,” I cooed.

She giggled, but didn’t hold her hands out for me, so I chose to let PD hold her for a few more seconds as I turned to the field.

That’s when I saw Bowe.

Shirtless. 

Laughing his ass off while he shook Booth’s hand, who, conveniently, was also shirtless.

Both men were wiping sweat out of their faces with their shirts, talking about what I’d guess was the course they’d just run, when Bowe’s eyes lifted and found mine.

I waved, and he grinned, full out.

His beard and sweat slickened hair made him look rough and delicious, and I wanted to freakin’ throw myself at him.

I had a little bit of decorum, though, and managed to give him a small peck on the cheek the moment he arrived at my side.

“When did you get here?” he asked, slightly out of breath.

I started to lean back when he started to lean forward, and his eyes started to dance as he moved with me.

“About two minutes ago,” I giggled when he captured me around the waist and hauled me against him.

“My wife doesn’t kiss me like that when I’m sweaty,” a man from my side whined.

Yes, a grown man with six foot two inches of solid muscle, whined.

I gave him a look, which clearly, he read, causing him to grin.

“The name’s Luke.” He offered me his hand. “And I’m the SWAT team leader.”

I shook his offered hand and dropped it after two pumps, trying in vain to disentangle my body from Bowe’s. 

“The problem, old man, is that you give her a choice,” another, a redhead this time, called from somewhere behind me.

“Miller,” someone said. “Mercy would kick your ass if she thought you were not letting her have her way.”

 

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…

 

“As always an amazing story from Lani Lynn Vale. Her writing always draws me in so that I am fully immersed into her stories.” – 5 Star Review from KinkyGirlsBookObsessions

“It kept me on my toes and had some hot and steamy scenes in too. Loved it!” – 5 Star Review from Hellbenders Book Blog

Header Put Out

 Seriously!!! This series keeps getting better and better, so much so that it remains one of my all time favorites, and my absolute fav from Lani Lynn Vale.

Bowe we have met long ago at the beginning of the series  and he has been a standing feature all throughout it, making small cameos where it’s been pointed out more than once by the previous heroines what a delicious catch he is with his smoking hot looks and his irresistible deep voice.

Angie we meet on the previous book, Controlled Burn, were she played the mysterious not-so-effective assistant to July on her renovation business. Her hinted personality there couldn’t have been more different than the one that is revealed to us in this book, and I was beyond pleasant surprise. She is a fighter in every way Bowe came across her there, and was forever captivated. From that moment on he pursued her relentless, since something told she was the one for him. She made him feel things he needs felt before, and he wasn’t ashamed to acknowledge them.

“It…you make me…I swear I feel things when I’m around you that are completely irrational.  A paramedic should be able to put those feelings on hold, but I can’t. Something about you makes my heart beat faster.”

The problem was that Angie’s life was a complicated one. Besides an huge abandonment issue cause by her father, her personal past love was the thing nightmares were made of, and to top it of, impossible to shut down forever. So, it’s no wander that when Bowe showed interess she ran for the hills, and rejected every single one of his advances for months.

Bowe was NEARLY the perfect hero, and his sensible side and his lovable nature coupled with that sexy as hell package made it so, but I so wanted he hadn’t been detained by Angie’s pushing away – yes, she did it for far too much and too long, no doubt – and hadn’t giving up on pursuing her, and then the revelation and scene at 5%!!!! I wanted to scream!!! Really, If that scene/part wasn’t there I would have given the book the five stars it deserved, but that one page was enough for him to let me down ( smh at you Lani, you meanie! ) and take him some points down from the perfect man and best book boyfriend he could have conquered, because really he was up there with Tai, from Shock Advised – my  LLV best book boyfriend and male main character perfection – , for all the rest of the book he was absolutely swoon worthy! If I could just let that one scene go… I really, really wish it wasn’t there. 🙁 

Anyway, don’t let me in any way spoil your Bowe high, because believe that piece of hot deliciousness is going to make you sigh and swoon! He’s just THAT good!!! So much so that Angie tried with all her might resist, but really even she knew she couldn’t resist THAT forever!!! LOL

“If we do this,” I said, pressing a kiss to her lips. “I’m not leaving. I’m staying. Forever. You literally won’t be able to get rid of me. I’ll move in here permanently.  Let my lease go.  Set up shop.  Seriously…I’m yours.”

Oh, and did I forget to mention his scorchingly HOT bedroom skills???!!! Honestly, be prepared because Lani come up with all the guns for this man! Bowe should probably come with a warning! It really is the quiet ones we need to look out for! WOW *cue fanning myself*

The man had fucking superpowers or something.
He’d gone from timid rabbit to voracious bear in three seconds flat, and I couldn’t find one single complaint about it.

“They’re freakin’ beautiful, because they are a part of you.” He stared into my eyes.  “The story behind them is ugly, but that’s a part of life.  You have to sometimes go through ugly to get beautiful.”

Not only that, but his hidden sensibility and bit of fragility made him impossible not to love as Angie soon found out, but it was seeing him with her baby girl Elise, to whom he instantly gave a part of his heart, that really sealed the deal. How could she not? Big sexy men with babies, who can resist them?! Specially one so in touch with his feelings and emotions!

“I fucking love you.  Every once in a while, I’m going to screw up. I’m going to piss you off and make you cry. I don’t mean to.  I don’t want you to cry.  But I will, because I’m a fucking human being.  I’m not a machine. I have feelings.

Put Out really was a fantastic and unforgettable story, and Angie, Bowe and Elise made go through all the feels! Of course we also had the usual deliciously thrilling and enticing Lani Lynn Vale moments, filled with suspense, romance, humor and plenty of steam! It gets you hooked from the start and keeps you begging for more! Yes, as you know I’m that greedy and can’t wait to see what comes next – yes, I’m looking at you Fatbaby, come to mommy!!!

“Jesus, Bowe,” I gasped, my hands going up under his arms to clutch his strong shoulders.  “What are you doing to me?” He pulled back and looked me dead in the eyes, the only light shining was the full moon from outside. But it was enough.  It was enough to see everything in his eyes all at once.
“Loving you, Ang.  Loving you.”

I love you.  I love you.  I love you.
I can’t say it enough that I love you. I love you more and more every day.  I miss you when you’re not there. I miss you when you’re in the other freakin’ room.

Header Jail House Rock

What an amazing smutty debut for the duo, Liberty Laine!

Short, sweet, sexy, safe and super funny, that’s how the words I’d use to describe Jake and Millie’s delicious story on Jail House Rock. These two get us hooked from the very beginning and their antics and laughing out loud moments just make us devour it in one sitting.

“I said Code Red,” I reply, ignoring Jake’s response.
“Red means ‘I’ve been kidnapped. Come fast,’ right?” she asks while rubbing her sore arm. Trying to break the door down with her small frame might not have been her best decision.
 “Tillie! That’s Code Blue! Code Red was ‘I’ve been kidnapped, but it’s all good and I think I want to stay.’ I’m not leaving here. He has all the orgasms,”

It was a goddamn code blue, all right. As in blue balls. Fucking Tillie. (Jake)

An OTT alpha bondsman and one (ok, two, since her twin sister is even worse) quirky – and a bit crazy – wannabe singer, make this one interesting reading. It was a true spiced up rom com at its best and I can’t wait wait to see what these ladies brings us next, they definitely got on my auto-read-author list! I hope next we get a equally enticing story for Tillie, Millie’s naughty sister!

I love your awful singing. I love your ridiculous antics. I love how you love your crazy criminal-ass sister. I love it all, and I want it for always. I don’t know what you have in store for me because you always seem to surprise me, but I want those surprises too,”

Synopsis

A sexy new M/M romance from New York Times Bestselling author Tessa Bailey 

When CEO Renner Bastion walks into a room, everyone keeps their distance. Well, everyone but the sarcastic, tattooed, Boston-bred security guard whose presence has kept Renner in New Jersey longer than intended. As if the unwanted attraction isn’t unsettling enough, Renner finds out his protector isn’t as unavailable as originally thought. 

Milo Bautista just came out to his wealthy, ultra-confident boss, a man he secretly respects and admires…in more ways than he’ll admit. Worldly, experienced Renner would never look in his direction, let alone share some of that confidence he wears like a cloak, so Milo has set his sights on someone else to be his first. 

Until Renner offers him private lessons in seduction…

Oh boy! Is it HOT in here or is it just me??? 

I know, I know, by now I should already be used to Tessa Bailey’s level of smoking hotness erotic perfection – she is, after all the queen of dirty mouthed alpha males –  but this one just cemented that in a whole new level!

Wound Tight is the first MM Romance by the author, and as I’m completely addicted to her writing and Made in Jersey is one of my favorite series, I couldn’t miss this one, even though it’s not a genre I’ve ever read before, (yes, I’ve read plenty of MMF and MFM, but we all know it’s not exactly the same, lol), and decided to pop my MM romance reader cherry with Renner and Milo’s story, and let me tell you, it was SO worth it!!! <3

Renner have been circling around each other for months, actually, since the very moment the security guard come to service as his employee. Renner has lived a life where control and rules have taken over, and are the only way he can function properly as well as his defense mechanism of choice. Rules and control that he applies to every single aspect of his life, which is mainly dominated by his work and his need to overcome himself every day on a professional level, so when the care-free security guard, to whom he is secretly attracted, clashes his controlled world and rules at every turn with his ‘take no prisoners’ attitude, he can’t help but be every day more fascinated…

Putting up with the subtle jabs and sarcasm had nothing to do with Renner’s reluctant fascination with the security guard. Or the way a flame lit under his blood every time the man was close by.

Milo Bautista has been just has drawn to his new boss since meeting him, but his attraction hides so much more, because what no one else know is that he has recently realized, or better yet, acknowledge to himself the true nature of his sexual orientation. And being Renner a confident and self assured gay man, he represents what Milo longs to acquire, a security in himself, sexually, that he doesn’t possess. Or at least that the excuse that he gives himself for wanting to care and protect Renner, and even stalking him… LOL

Instead of learning how to be comfortable in his own skin by following the lead of a man who epitomized confidence, Milo had developed something of a crush. Who wouldn’t? Renner was concise, demanding and intelligent, and he didn’t give a fuck who disapproved of him. A badass who could raise an eyebrow and have employees running for cover.

I loved Milo’s character! His honesty, and straightforwardness, as well as his glass-half-full attitude were so refreshing! His loyalty and protectiveness to the ones he cared for just made him even more incredible!

He enjoyed taking care of people.
For some reason, that quality was amplified around Renner. By about seven million notches. Probably because the jerk needed taking care of more than anyone.

Of course all these extraordinary qualities only spiked Renner’s interest more every day, so when one of those days Milo confessed – completely blowing his mind – that he was attracted to men, there was no stopping their magnetism. Even though Renner sure as hell tried, placing obstacles at every turn and revealing his rules that deemed Milo as ticking all the boxes of whom he didn’t ever allow himself to date.

“No one under thirty. No one with even a remote connection to my company. And no one on the fence.” He paused. “That might seem a little harsh to you, but it’s better for everyone involved if there are no second thoughts or regrets.”

But in reality, all those rules proved more than futile, because their off-the-charts attraction had to explode at some point, and when it did, there was no stopping them! 

“I make the decisions. Do you understand? Boss inside work, boss outside of work. That’s me. Your dick seems to like that idea just fine.”

And Lordy, let yourselves be prepared because an unleashed Renner, in all his alpha maleness, filthy mouthing glory, was a thing of beauty! Up there with all the other Tessa Bailey’s dirty talking alphas! There was no mistaking who was in control in this relationship.

“Fuck. I’m so hot watching you make up for lost time with my cock. You can’t get enough. Just like I can’t get enough of that pretty-boy mouth.”

Even if at times Milo was just has dirty mouthed as his first male lover.

“I want to suck you off right here. I want you to remember me on my knees, my head bobbing up and down between your legs, next time someone tries to fuck around with you. Or tries to make you forget that you run shit.” Another, longer lick. “You’re the man, Renner. So sit back, watch me make you come, and feel like it.”

But he got off much more on being on the receiving end of all that dominance and filthy words, because as he soon discovers, it’s what he has been craving all this life. Or maybe that’s just Renner himself. Maybe he’s  WHO he has been craving all along…

“Tell me, Renner, because I needed you to…mark me. I kept waiting and you never came. So I need to hear the reason you wouldn’t let me leave with anyone.”
“Because I want you for myself.”

Wound Tight is quite a rocky journey into their relationship, and at times my heart was really hurting for Milo, and his gentle soul with all the back and forth and pushing away from Renner. He really was the best, because Renner was amazing too, but damn, his reactions sometimes gave me whiplash! His fear and defensive walls around his heart are justified by what happened in his past, but Milo, with his love and openness ends up conquering them all! And his Renner’s major groveling sure did help a lot! 😉

Now I’m just sad we have to say goodbye to this series, and all the Made in Jersey gang – from whom we got one more delicious peek here – because they just proved Tessa Bailey’s incredible writing talent over and over again, and here with a very special twist, given their blue-collar characters, which was undeniably refreshing! But I’m sure that soon enough TB will brings us more surprises like this series, and I can’t freakin’ wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“I claimed you, Renner. I made you my friend. Made you my…more. I needed you to claim me in return. That was all I needed.”

“I’m staying here for you. This is going to be home, because it’s where you are. If I go somewhere, I’m taking you with me. No days or nights apart. Not because I don’t have trust. But because I don’t have the patience for time without Milo. I don’t want to know what that’s like anymore. I need you.”

Synopsis

One moment, one ordinary day changed my life and led me to my forever.

Three guys tried to kidnap me.

One man saved me.

I was beyond scared. Being blind, I was already terrified of my every move, the unknown frightening.

His name is Torch. Once he decided I was his, he didn’t let me go. Torch became everything to me: my protector, my safe haven, my husband, lover, and most of all, the father to my babies. He made me see that I didn’t have to be afraid of my every step, because he would always be there to catch me before I fell.

Torch is the Vice President of the Devils Souls MC. The men are violent and scary, but I learned to trust them, because above everything else, their women are protected. They became my family. My only family.

header-torch

First and foremost I have to say this cover… WOW!!!! It’s one of my favorite covers this year, honestly! I already wanted to read Torch as soon as it was announced, but add this cover to the mix and I SO wanted to meet Torch! Total Cover Lust!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

The giddy excitement to read this couple’s story was more than justified, IMHO, because, considering how picky I am with this genre, I enjoyed the hell out of this ride!

Torch emerges in Kayla’s life exactly when she needed a savior the most, and like a true knight in shining armor – though more of a dark knight -, he rescues her, but like the good bad-ass, alpha biker that he is, he never again let’s her go. Even more surprisingly, she soon finds out she also doesn’t want him to let go.

For the first time in my life, I am deciding to trust a stranger, and blindly at that. I am taking a leap of faith, and that’s something I never ever do. I fear the unknown.

Torch was an amazing character. Sure he has a rough and hard persona that fits perfectly with his MC lifestyle, and even cold and cruel when required, but with Kayla and his daughter he couldn’t be more surprisingly sweet and caring. This is a side he reserve for, and only for, the one women he loves. To the rest of the world he is the biker with the tattoos and rough attitude to match.

“What’s that look for?”
“You have full sleeves?” she asks and puts her hair up in a bun thing on top of her head.
“Yeah.”
Her head shoots in my direction. “Oh. My. God. I am dating a freaking bad boy and didn’t even know it!” She fans herself dramatically.
“You’re such a little shit.” I laugh at her dramatics.
“I’m your little shit, though.”

Of course, not just any biker, but a OTT obsessed and protective alpha at its best, and Kayla was on the receiving end of his obsession and protectiveness. From the moment they met she brought it out in him, and it never stopped. I love a good protective alpha – and Kayla really needed a champion -, but one of the things I loved the most, not only about Torch, but about this couple in general was their contrast: his strength to her fragility, his bossiness to her sassiness, and of course, his rough and hard exterior compared to her softness, but the clash I adored the most was the love and care with which he treated her from the very start, by she was made of glass, and the most precious thing in the world… That had me swooning…

“You never get on your knees for anyone,” he growls and presses his mouth to mine. “You are to be worshiped,”—his lips trail down to my throat then down to my breasts—“cherished”—his lips trail down to my belly button—“You are my Queen and will be treated as such.”

Like a good insta-love / lust trope – and you guys know how much I love those, LOL – the feelings and the relationship develop at warp speed, and I truly felt their attraction and appeal to one another from the very beginning.

I didn’t think I could love anyone like this, but I love her with everything in me.

 

Kayla will be the only person who sees my vulnerable side. The only one I will be with like this. She may have not been my first, but she sure as fuck will be my last.

I’m sure you know the expression “the bigger they are, the harder they fall”, let me tell you that fits Torch to a T, because for someone who never thought he would find his soul mate, it only took him um look, one touch, to fall and fall HARD for Kayla!

“I can’t stand the thought of losing you, Torch. You are my world,” she whispers to me. It strikes me right in the heart. She means everything to me, too.

I feel such raw love for him that it’s almost unreal and so powerful. I love him with every bit of my being.

However, don’t be mistaken, because he wasn’t alone on this ride! Kayla fell just as hard and fast as he did! But with how cherished and cared for, as she was by him, how could she not?! He became everything to her, as she did to him…

Meeting him was one of the worst and best days of my life.
That was the day he changed my life forever. The day I finally felt, lived, and loved. He became my rock, my world.
He made me see that it was okay to be afraid and that I shouldn’t fear, because he would always be there to catch me.

LeAnn Ashers also gave us a look into their MC world, and thought the side plots, alerted to a very sad reality on human traffic, sexual slavery, and abuse, which this group, The Devils Souls MC tried to fight and annihilate as best as they could, by any means necessary, even if it meant crossing to the other side of the law in the most unorthodox of ways. They may be rough, hard and scary, but for and to the ones they loved, and specially to protect them they would do anything. I loved how all of them treated their woman like gold, never breaking their alphaness to the rest of the world.

“Hang on for the ride, girl, because that man will make you the happiest woman imaginable. They may look gruff, but for us, they are softies. They won’t ever admit that, though,”

Ms. Ashers really gave me the type of MC Romance that ticks all my boxes! Insta-love, OTT obsessed alpha, minor to none club-whore and other woman problems, faithful and devoted hero, and good context and development: we had it all in TORCH! The fast paced and thrill filled plot just spiced it up even more! And after all those teasing snippets of these secondary characters, I can’t wait for the stories from the rest of the gang! So many interesting characters! I can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

My husband.
 The man who made me feel.
The man who showed me what love is.
The man who gave me everything I never knew I wanted and needed.
The man who I never saw but loved with everything in me.
This man who is my everything, my heart, and the other part of my soul.

 

“The most beautiful thing about you is your heart. The light that comes off of you makes my cold heart not so cold. You are the kindest person I have ever met and the most loving.”

Dilyn Hart hates Christmas, so when her boss (and ex-boyfriend) hands her an assignment to interview champion snowboarder and gorgeous playboy extraordinaire, Dash Grainger, on Christmas Eve, she takes it. There are several things she doesn’t plan for—a surly driver, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, a freak snowstorm—but the biggest surprise of all is Dash himself.

Dash Grainger lives for the high, and so far in his twenty-six years, he’s never met anyone or anything he loves more. Nothing has ever thrilled him as much as slick snow, cold air, and breakneck speed.

Until he meets Dilyn.

But one perfect night doesn’t mean clear, blue skies the next day. There are some storms that can’t be weathered.

Christmas Day might just be one of them.

Dashing Through The Snow is the perfect little read for beginning of this holiday season!!! It puts you immediately in the Christmas Spirit!!!

Sweet and super sexy are the words that describe this little treat of novella to a T, since I devoured it as fast as a delicious Christmas cake.

Dash and Dilyn find themselves stuck in a cabin in a middle of a snowstorm, and took a chance, and opened up to one another, like they had never done before in their lives, because from the very first look they felt the connection, and the deep seated feeling that they could trust, that they could rely on each other.

“You know me.  It doesn’t always take years to get to know someone. Sometimes you get a feel for people within minutes.  And you know me. Trust me, you know me.”

They both had childhood hurts and traumas that left them scars, so it was like this the recognition of a kindle souls, and for two people who had never truly loved before, this night may just have changed not only their view on the world, but their entire future. They never really stood a chance! LOL!

“So there will always be something more important than people.”
“Yes. Until there’s not. Until someone walks away with my heart.”
“How will you know? How can you be so sure you’ve never been in love?”
His answer is spoken in a hushed tone that rasps across my nerves like crushed velvet. “Because she’ll be my high.  That’s how I’ll know.”

I’ve never—never, ever—reacted to a man this way. So profoundly. So wildly.

And Dash for all of his daredevil, playboy persona sure did surprise me, because his feelings where so clear, and his words deeply touching and meaningful. We could feel that deep down he knew that he had found in Dilyn what he himself never knew that he was looking for, but clearly craved: true love.

I think real love doesn’t ever go away. You can’t turn it off, outrun it, or drink it away.

That’s the kind of love I’ll stop skiing for.  The kind that’s worth everything.  It’s all or nothing for me.  And when I find my ‘all’, I’ll give her everything.”

But this man isn’t made only of tender moments and sweet words, because he is every bit of panty-melting manliness that Dilyn thought she was prepared for, but even in that he was so much more, because not even her strength and sassiness were enough to fight a one on one contact with Dash. Specially considering the way he truly wanted to contact with her… Because OMG, was that man HOT!!! 

“I won’t stop until you come all over me. I want to feel everything you’ve got dripping between us.”

Michelle Leighton really gave us the perfect little holiday treat, with all her usual and incredible writing and amazing character development but in a short and insta-love setting that left me just as hooked as her full length novels. You guys know what a good insta-love whore I am, so let me tell you this one was just fantastic!!! So, please, Michelle, bring on more treats like Dash and Dilyn!!! He may have given Dilyn Christmas back, but you sure brought us Christmas! Merry Christmas to everyone! <3 <3 <3 <3 

We only spent a few hours together, but my heart made the decision that we were meant for each other.

“I know how hard Christmas is for you.”
I shake my head, injecting as much sincerity into my expression as I possibly can.  “No, not anymore.  I will forever love this holiday more than any other. It brought me you.”

Maybe we can make a family.  Our family.  Either way, our future is bright and beautiful with a little dash of perfect.

Excerpt

I dug through the pile and found the envelope she was referring to at the bottom. It was impossible to miss with US Citizenship and Immigration Services listed on the upper left corner.

“Crap. Crap. Crap,” I chanted to myself as I tore it open. Then it turned to “fuck, fuck, fuck” as my heart dropped. I read through the letter quickly the first time around, and then much more slowly to make sure I wasn’t misunderstanding what it said. Unfortunately, the meaning didn’t change the second time around.

“I’m fucked,” I groaned.

“Not yet you aren’t,” Landon growled from the door as he barged into my office and slammed it shut. “If you were, I’d know it because I’d be the one doing the fucking.”

His raspy voice slid over my skin and heated it. Just the sound of him talking had my panties wet, and I’d been avoiding him all this time because I’d thought he’d be the reason why I had visa problems.

“All those wasted opportunities,” I muttered.

“Not wasted,” he corrected. “Foreplay.”

“I don’t have time for this right now, Landon. Not when my whole world is falling apart,” I cried, waving the letter in the air.

“You sound as bad as Samantha did when she told me to get my ass in here.” He tore it from my hands, and I dropped my head to my desk while he read through the letter.

“It’s just an additional interview, Zoe,” he said soothingly, in a failed attempt to calm me down.

“My visa was approved by an immigration officer at the border two months ago. It was easy peasy. I showed him my TN visa application letter, my bachelor’s degree, and my passport. I answered some questions about how long I planned to stay in the country. About how often I planned to go home to see my family. Boom, I was approved. Which means they shouldn’t have any additional questions for me,” I retorted as I jumped to my feet and paced back and forth. “Except, someone apparently has it in for me since they received a tip that I lied about my intent to stay here for only three years. Who would do something like that?”

“Calm the fuck down,” he ordered, as though it was that simple.

“Calm down?” I parroted. “That’s easy for you to say since you’re not the one in danger of being deported!”

“Neither are you.”

“I beg to differ”—I stormed towards him and jabbed my finger in his chest, absently noticing how firm it was—“since an appointment at an immigration field office sure sounds like the start to yanking my work visa to me.”

“You know what?” he drawled. “Don’t calm down. Feel free to freak the fuck out because in the end that will work out even better for me.”

“What in the heck are you talking about?”

“I’m talking about you and me, Zoe. You’ve been denying what’s happening between us for two, fucking long as hell months,” he growled, his eyes lit with determination. “You’ve used your work visa as an excuse to keep yourself away from me. Well guess what, Blondie? Giving in to me is your way out of this mess.”

“I still have absolutely no idea what you mean. Maybe you can dumb it down for me since I’m blonde and all,” I muttered sarcastically, not a big fan of his nickname for me.

“Fine,” he bit out. “I’ll make it as simple as one word—marriage.”

“What? No,” I gasped. “We haven’t even been out on a date!”

“And whose fault is that?” he countered. “It certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying on my part. If I’d had my way, you wouldn’t have a single doubt about how damn serious I am.”

 

 

header-temporarily-married

Super sweet, super HOT and super quick/short read, that’s what we get with Not So Temporarily Married! It was indeed all around SUPER and classic Fiona Davenport! <3

Zoe, a recently graduated architectural Canadian designer decided to take a bet and spread her wings into Uncle Sam’s lands. Luck was on her side and she landed her first job working for an established and prestigious architectural/construction firm. But it is clear from the very first day that she was just lucky on the professional department, because she caught much more than a job, she caught the undivided attention of her boss, the smoking hot, Landon.

Landon knew from the very moment his eyes landed on Zoe that she was his future, the only woman for him. His future wife and mother of his children. He insistently pursued her from the very first day she started at his company, and had been quite patient in waiting for her to change her mind – yes, for a FD’s hero he showed quite a restrain, not taking what he wanted for all those months, LOL – until the very thing that was keeping her from him worked in his favor, her work VISA conditions! Let’s just say he was more than happy to solve her affliction with the perfect solution that would please both of them, marriage.

Zoe was of course shocked, but given the insane attraction to Landon, that she had been fighting from the very start, marrying her boss sure was the furthest from a hardship!  Now, she was just in for a bit of a surprise when she would realize that this marriage was going to be real in every vow and way, and the NOT SO TEMPORARILY!!! <3 <3 <3 <3
