Book Review – Unbeloved (Undeniable #4) – Madeline Sheehan

This is one of my absolute MUST READ series! The first book, Undeniable, set the stage for a series that’s unlike any other Biker MC series out there.

In Unbeloved, we are reacquainted with Dorothy. You might remember Dorothy as Jase’s lover. Dorothy is in love with Jase, but has lived for years as ‘the other woman’, seeing as Jase is married. Dorothy is tired of watching Jase with his wife and indulges in another affair, with another Hell’s Horseman, Hawk. She maintains both affairs for a long time before it all comes crashing down. After years of avoiding both men, she has to acknowledge that she still has feelings for one man.

I enjoyed this instalment. Nothing new there… all the books are as gritty and raw as the first one was. However, this one felt different…. and I’ll explain why. Firstly, Undeniable was an epic story that took place in a span of decades. While this is the same in that respect, it differs in the storytelling. In Undeniable, everything was spelled out to us, we got to live the pain, the suffering and the love that was Deuce and Eva’s relationship. In this one, everything felt a bit hurried. While I enjoyed it, I did wish the author would slow down, so I could take my time to cry for Dorothy’s lose and rejoice in her happily ever after.

That being said, I did have tears in my eyes because this was one angst-filled instalment. Dorothy’s happily ever after is not an easy one… and that’s an understatement. She gets the man of her dreams only to lose him again, and it was hard to read. When her happiness came, I was so happy, the tears fell. However, I felt robbed of the moment again. It all felt like it went too fast. I reached the epilogue hoping to see more of this HEA only to find something different… sigh… I just needed more!

The other thing I noticed was the lack of steamy scenes. We all know how unapologetically these bikers take their women. That’s part of why I love the series so much. I love the idea of these possessive bikers taking what they want when they want it. It’s a tiny (huge) fantasy of mine. However, the steamy scenes were about three if not less and they were glossed over. Again, I needed more :/

I think the reason this ended up feeling like a novella was because we already knew Dorothy’s story. This then felt like an extended epilogue. It’s the author’s style to tell us about the other characters in this incredible world she’s created, but then we might end up knowing so much that the subsequent books might never be as epic as the first.

That being said, I absolutely cannot wait for ZZ’s book. Though we know all about his background, his life now sounds even more dangerous, more interesting… and that introduction made my mouth water! I’m not as curious about Preacher but maybe it’s because we don’t know much about him, which might make his book another Undeniable in its epicness :)

4 stars.

Book Review – One Night: Promised – Jodi Ellen Malpas

I was so excited to receive a copy of this soon to be released book by Jodi Ellen Malpas! I’m sure you remember her as the creator of the phenomenon that was Jesse Ward, and with this new trilogy, she promised another crazy ride with a new guy, the mysterious M.

The book introduces us to our heroine, Livy (Olivia Taylor) who works in a coffee shop. She’s a bit of a recluse, a beautiful recluse, which means men are always asking her out and she always says no. Until she meets him, M. He’s arrogant and beautiful… she’s intrigued.

I’ve always tried to keep my life simple, but now I’m craving a complication – a tall, dark-haired, mysterious complication.

He makes her a proposition, one night of pure pleasure; no commitments, no feelings, no strings attached. She’d be crazy to accept. She has a past, one that is too fresh for her to even think of entertaining such a proposition. Yet she’s never felt this kind of attraction before. She can’t deny herself, and 24 hours it is.

M makes Livy feel things she never thought possible. It was inevitable, she wants more. But he’s too much of a mystery. He’s clearly hiding beneath the expensive suits and the arrogant attitude. There’s more to him that should worry her, but she’s willing to stick it out, if he is.

Onto my thoughts. The book has a slow build to it. Very slow. I found that I could put it down. Often. It is highly descriptive… by that I mean, we know absolutely everything going on in Livy’s mind. I personally prefer books with more dialogue and I felt, at least in the first half of the book, that it was all about Livy’s thoughts and feelings. It felt drawn out and repetitive and I had to constantly will myself to go on.

My other problem with the book was the erotic scenes. They felt so weird to me. The dialogue came off stilted and uncomfortable. This is where I place a disclaimer: I prefer a gentleman on the streets and a freak in the bed type of man, this was not M. The thing is, M is a British gentleman and he talks exactly as the upper crust of British society does. Well and good, but in the bedroom I wanted him to let lose, but all he did was say things like “This is good, yes?” and “I concur”. It was so weird. Plus he kept correcting her manners… gah! It was meant to be one night of pleasure and I read that scene in two days, I just couldn’t get over how weird it was.

That being said, I stuck with the book for a reason. I did want to see M’s identity revealed. And I will say that the last 10% of the book is an absolute thrill. Finally we get the drama and the emotion. In fact, if it hadn’t taken me so long to read the first 90% of the book, I would have rated the book higher.

I also enjoyed the secondary characters. Absolutely loved Livy’s grandmother and her best friend. Their characters seemed so real and positive.

So I’ll end by saying that unfortunately, this one was not for me. I’ve seen some absolutely glowing reviews so I urge you to go forth and read it. I would love to know your thoughts.

3 stars.

My name is Autumn Winters.

The truth is, that’s the biggest lie I’ve ever told.

My real name is Olivia Redmund. Autumn Winters is the curtain I hide behind. You see, I write bestselling erotic romance novels. But my life is far from erotic. The only fantasy exists in my head.

The day I met Hunter Grayson, that all changed. A handsome stranger on a train who turned my world upside down, made me think and feel things I never knew were possible.

But he’s hiding, too.

What happens when I slowly realize that who I truly am is more similar to who I’m pretending to be? I want to be brave enough to tell the world, but the fear is crippling.

Fear of myself. Fear of the unknown. Fear of what others will think.

But life is too short to be afraid.

And I’m so damn tired of hiding.

After a misunderstanding that jeopardized the wellbeing of the group and a near fatal accident that nearly cost him his best friend, Mark Moretti, Caleb was determined to become the loyal and devoted man he had been in the past. The minute Dr. Jena Turner stepped from the ICU with news of Mark’s condition, Caleb’s world spun off its axis. Several chance encounters only deepened his desire to make her his. He longed to prove that the life he preferred was one of pleasure and passion.

But, Jena Turner has a secret that haunts her. Hiding from her past, a simple moment in the heat of passion sends her running in fear. An unlikely confidant can either push her back into Caleb’s arms or give him a taste of his own medicine.

Broken and defeated, Caleb questions everything he knows about love. Can he prove to Jena that love is worth the risk or will he watch her walk out of his life forever?

vip 2

Some people need love…

I need sex, money, control, and power.

Anyone could have those four things, but only one could have VIP. Becoming Madam was never a choice for me, it was a mandated order from the most powerful woman I knew- my mother. I was born to fill her shoes, never to make mistakes, or to show weakness.

You are the product of your environment. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree; you learn from what you see, not from what you’re told. Nature vs. Nurture. I learned from it all; what I saw, what I didn’t see, what I was told, and from reading between the lines.

I was raised with the belief that the world spun ONLY because of me. I held power as far back as I can remember, saw things no one ever talks about, and witnessed illegal acts of sex, drugs, and money by the time I was eighteen.

You saw a glimpse of me in VIP, now see it from the beginning. Enter my world where anything goes; no judgments, no remorse, no guilt. You play by my rules, or you don’t play at all. There are no limits to what I can do, or to what I can show you…I will ensure my legacy by any means necessary.

My name is Lilith Veronica Stone, and I am The Madam.

He might just be my biggest mistake yet.

Evie Jamieson, a former wild child, is not only a headstrong, smart-mouthed trouble magnet, she is also a lead singer with a plan. That plan involves uprooting her band, including her two best friends guitarist Henry and band manager Mac, to Sydney to kick off their dreams of hitting the big time.

Jared Valentine is the older brother of Evie’s best friend Mac and also the man determined to make Evie his. They strike up a long distance friendship which suits Evie because she’s determined to avoid the distraction of love, not only because it doesn’t fit in with her plan, but because twice in the past it has left her for dead. Moving to Sydney, however, has put her directly in Jared’s path and he has decided it’s the perfect opportunity to make his play.

Unfortunately Jared, co-owner in a business that ‘consults’ in dangerous hostage and kidnapping situations, makes an enemy who’s determined to enact revenge. When his enemy puts Evie in his sights, Jared not only has a fight on his hands to make her his own, but also to keep her alive.

Now she’s on the run from a past she won’t talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she’s never actually met.

When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can’t help knowing the one-night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered.

But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they’ll first have to deal with the past that hasn’t forgotten her any more than she’s forgotten it–and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.

The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She’d been reading them since she was thirteen. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have…until he wasn’t beautiful anymore.

Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl’s love for a broken boy, and a wounded warrior’s love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

It was more like two years of being dominated and controlled by him, a handsome and powerful man. When she finally decides to leave him, after he finally pushes her too far, she revives her friendship with her best friend from college.

Little did Izzy know that rekindling her friendship would also throw her into an amazing loving relationship with a gorgeous fun, but at times jealous, bar owner named Z.

Matt Williams had everything a young, single guy could ever want. He lived in a great party town, made plenty of money and loved his job. Hell bent on avoiding commitment, Matt was fairly cavalier with women and kept his heart closed off to guard it at all costs. His good looks and charismatic personality guaranteed his nights were filled with fun and excitement. When his job forced him to relocate, everything changed.

The one thing Vanessa Hargrave was in control of was her career. Outside the office she had difficulty following her convictions…she didn’t like to disappoint her parents and continually vied for their acceptance. What seemed to please them was her engagement to Charles because he was a doctor; however, to Vanessa, he was too predictable, safe and boring. She wanted more. She desired passion and romance. She wanted to feel something; she needed to be more than a convenience to someone.

Along comes Matt – sexy, carefree and a rule breaker at every turn. His “it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission” attitude cuts against her rigid polices and procedures mind-set and she despises how everything is seemingly handed to him.
Pushing Vanessa too far with his office antics might just cause enough friction to make them explode for one night. Will that one night be enough for them? Or will it create enough tension to throw them into something they never expected to have…

When werecat, Greta learns her tribe plans to sacrifice her on the next full moon unleash the potent magic of her blood, a dark sorcerer is the only one strong enough to protect her. Will Dayne kill her as he has so many others of her kind, or is his grudge against her family strong enough to save her?

Claimed:

In the midst of a power struggle for vampire king, it soon becomes clear to Anthony that the only way to protect a fragile human in his care is to claim her as his mate. Meanwhile, his deepest wish is to have his lover awakened from the memory loss that took everything… not just the memories he meant to erase.

Mated:

Be small. Be invisible. It’s an odd life mantra for a human woman in a world of monsters. But Jane’s blood contains a touch of vampire magic, making her a target. With her faster-than-normal healing time, she’s an ideal punching bag for the abusive vampire she’s been living with, the one she thought might protect her this time.

Paul owes a debt to the werewolf alpha, and Cole doesn’t care how he gets paid: flesh or coin. $10,000 or Jane? The human is a small price for the vampire to pay to be debt-free.

Cole is attractive and warm—so different from the coldness and death Jane has grown used to. If the werewolves didn’t have a worse reputation than the vampires, being taken by the alpha might feel like rescue, but Cole’s growing possessive nature, makes Jane fear he’ll only abuse her like the others. If he doesn’t, could becoming an alpha’s mate free her from the vampires for good?

everlasting

What if your destiny lay on the other side of death?

The annual Culling ceremony is a day every coming-of-age novice looks forward to within the Primeval Coven. It’s the start to being initiated into the Night Watchmen, humankind’s protectors, and it’s the long-awaited day when novices discover if they’re a Hunter or a Witch.

But this day is not a happy one for Faye Middleton. Not when she’s known her whole life that she’s a Defect and is about to face banishment in front of her fellow novices. She’s forced to attend the Culling with little hope for her future, but what she discovers about herself is far worse than she could’ve imagined. And far more dangerous.

Thrown into training and separated from her friends, Faye must learn to adjust. She struggles to find her place within the Coven, and with Jaxen Gramm, the darkly handsome and extremely unnerving man assigned to watch and protect her. Emotions run high, and when she discovers a deadly secret about him, her struggles deepen.

Book Review – Use (Songs of Perdition #2) – CD Reiss

I’m out of my book slump! And all thanks to this book :) Use was such a wonderful follow up to Kick… CD Reiss immediately pulls you in with her mastery of words and her clever manipulation of emotions and I was just thrilled to be back in her world.

So it begins right where Kick left off. Elliot has quit his job at the Center and Fiona feels adrift without him. She has a new counsellor but she can’t bring herself to confide anything to anyone. She still has no recollection of why she stabbed Deacon though some bits and pieces are forming in her mind… On the other hand, Elliot is worried about his attraction to Fiona. He cannot be attracted to his patient, yet she’s all he can think about. He wants to help her, but he’s afraid of being too close… and there’s still Deacon…

Kick was a 5 star read for me and this one upped the ante! It actually feels wrong to give it 5 stars because it deserves more. It’s unapologetic and raw and with that hint of a mystery that everyone wants to uncover. Why did Fiona stab Deacon? I’m a huge fan of mysteries so I devoured this one as slowly as I could so as to solve it without hearing it from the horse’s mouth… and I loved every minute of it.

Fiona is still broken. She is still ruled by her addictions, but with some help, she it starting to come to some realisations. She deserves more… maybe a normal life, maybe a man like Elliot. But Deacon grounds her, he lets her be…. can she really move on from him? Another thing I love, love triangles! CD Reiss has created a brilliant one where I move from one guy to the next in matter of pages :) But seeing as Deacon has some Dutch roots, as do I, maybe I’m rooting for him :)

I’ll mention that you can read this series without having read the previous ones… though why you haven’t read the previous ones is beyond me! They are equally brilliant, wonderfully written, though I would say this is the grittier one of the three.

So if you haven’t yet discovered CD Reiss, get out from under that rock and start reading Beg, or Spin or Kick… thank me later.

5 stars!

relentless

Arabella never expected to be a single parent in her forties. When she got married, in her mind, it was for life. But, as life sometimes does, it throws a curve ball, and decides a different fate for you.

So here she was, forty-four, single, two children at University and free from an abusive marriage. She is not unhappy with her life – she has her own business, which keeps her busy, and she has accepted her loneliness as part of being a single parent and staying off the grid in case her ex-husband finds her.

Fate then throws another curve ball. This one threatens to disrupt her well ordered life and turn it upside down, changing everything she knows; her perceptions, her thinking, her experiences… her life.

Fabian is a wealthy Italian property developer who just doesn’t understand the concept of the word ‘no’; despite the fact that he is engaged, about to be married. His relentless pursuit of her awakens her latent sexuality, throwing her into a vortex of desire, lust, guilt and indecision.

She can’t deny her attraction to him but there are good reasons to stay away, reasons he keeps telling her are unimportant. One of those reasons is the not insignificant fact, that he is only a few years older than her son.

Her dilemma is intensified, when her children discover the secret life she has been leading behind their backs, and they present her with a devastating ultimatum.

raw

Kendall Tremaine is content with her life. Sure, she is still haunted by the ghosts of a dark past, still searching for redemption from selfish actions. But she wakes each morning, hoping it is just around the corner. Until a trip to Spain turns her life upside down. She is sold as a sex slave. To a devastatingly handsome–and dangerous—billionaire. A billionaire who is more monster than man.

But it is the man’s tenderness that threatens to destroy her…not the monster’s cruelty.

Kace Ramos loves the sight of women knotted in his ropes. He enjoys their whimpers of pain. He craves their screams of terror. He never has a shortage of beautiful women in his dungeon. Some quietly submissive, some openly defiant, he strips them raw and then sends them home, broken and bruised. But the unbreakable Kendall does something no slave has ever done. Her cries of pleasure shatter his barriers, making him feel things he’s never felt before…things he thought he could never feel. Even before their time is up, he knows he’ll never get her out of his mind…or his heart.

The man will do whatever it takes to make her his. But the monster won’t be satisfied until he has torn her to pieces.

catching

Twenty-one year-old Jillian Nichols only has one rule when it comes to boys: catch and release. Boy-catching isn’t just a game for Jillian and her friends, it’s a lifestyle. After all, boys might be good for a dance or a drink and certainly a little under-cover action of the scandalous variety, but expect much else and you’re bound for heart ache.

So when her best friends and fellow boy catchers start dropping like flies junior year, Jillian is determined to keep boys in her bedroom and out of her heart. Until she meets Liam McAvoy, the kind of guy that sticks around to make waffles and who can’t—or perhaps won’t—take a hint.

Study abroad student Liam doesn’t want to be another notch on Jillian’s bedpost. Actually he has much more interesting ideas for Jillian and her bedposts, but his student visa’s set expiration date means he can’t promise her forever. That doesn’t mean he’s going to walk away from the challenge of discovering why Jillian is hell-bent at keeping people at a distance.

Before long, neither is sure who is catching who—or if they’re playing for keeps. Jillian knows one thing though: falling in love will not only break the only rule of boy-catching, it could also break her heart.

ruthless

But then he found me.

Now I belong to Cain—a ruthless, loveless man who’s intent on making me his obedient slave. He’s done unspeakable things to my body, tortured me, and broken me down so that I’ll never betray him. And I wouldn’t have…

Until Spike came along.

He’s rough around the edges, but warm. When he kisses me, I feel alive. I’ve never been in love, but Spike is all I’ve ever wanted. When I’m around him, all bets are off. I’m falling for him and I can’t hide it anymore.

If Cain finds out, he’ll kill us both.

deep

First loves, second chances…

When Cali Morgan kicks off her perfect post-college summer in Lake Tahoe, she has everything she ever wanted: acceptance into a top law program, a gorgeous boyfriend, and an incredible summer planned with her best friend.

Confident about her place in the world, Cali makes it her mission to be her friend’s wingwoman and help her meet guys. What Cali doesn’t count on is running into Jaeger Lang, one of her older brother’s high school friends, or the sparks that fly when she’s around him.

Jaeger has changed, and it’s not just the added height and muscle. There’s something about him that’s deep and a little scarred. In spite of the changes, Jaeger becomes a top pick for her friend—if Cali can keep her hands off him.

But when Cali’s boyfriend dumps her and her carefully laid plans begin to unravel, she finds herself questioning what it is she truly desires. In the midst of doubts about her future, one thing is very clear: she wants Jaeger for her own. The question is, has her friend already fallen for him?

beautiful

It was supposed to be just for the summer…

Some people just don’t belong together, or at least that’s what the world would have them believe.

Reese Westfield comes from a world of old money, country clubs, cotillions, and expensive cars. She’s tired of dating Warren McCarthy just to make her father happy. Reese has long since had her eye on someone else, and this summer she’s determined to make it happen.

Growing up in Lake Loveless there has always been a strict monetary divide—there was the rest of the Lake and then there were the Waterman’s. Ace Waterman has worked for everything he has, and he doesn’t have a lot. He breaks his back doing grunt work while putting himself through college. He’s used to life passing him by.

Reese has loved Ace from afar for as long as she can remember. The summer of her freshman year she comes home with plans to land Ace in her bed at least for a few short weeks, and, if she’s lucky, forever.

Ace has loved Reese for as long as he can remember, but their friendship has never graduated beyond platonic, so when Reese comes home from her first year away and proposes the two of them have a summer fling, Ace is quick to comply. The rules: no strings, no expectations, just something hotter than the sun to set the sheets on fire.

But when their worlds collide, and neither of them is willing to admit to having true feelings, it becomes clear to Ace he’s nothing more than a dirty little secret—that the summer fling was just something meaningless to pass the time.

Reese wonders if she can ever stop trying to please her father, and it’s only through her mother’s letters that she finds the answers she truly seeks, but will they be the ones she wants to hear?

As summer draws to a close, Ace and Reese are still very much enraptured even though the time has come to douse the flame and move on—but neither one of them is prepared to leave this BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION.

the pretend

Confident. Brilliant. Rich. Devastatingly handsome. Aiden Manning seemed to have it all. As naive as I was, when he seemed interested in me, I fell head over heels immediately.

But Aiden Manning’s life held a dark side, one that he needed to hide at any cost. That’s where I would come in. My trusting nature had caused me to owe money to the wrong people, and Aiden was right there and ready to help, if only I’d help him out as well. Just one signature on a piece of paper, and suddenly I was bound to him. The ground rules I had laid out at the beginning quickly melted away, and I found myself being drawn deeper and deeper into Aiden’s life.

However, someone couldn’t handle that. An even more powerful figure in Aiden’s life would stop at nothing to break the two of us apart. It soon became clear that I might have to sacrfice everything I had to keep the two of us together.

The real question was: How long could I pretend?

nameless

They named it anything but love.

After a failed marriage to a domineering man, Erin refuses to be controlled by anything or anyone. That includes Seth, the father of her baby—a man who was supposed to be only a one-night-stand, a man who’s used to always getting his way.

There’s a reason that Seth Thomas, a successful defense attorney, is often referred to as the Bulldozer. If something needs to happen, he makes it happen. That includes being part of his baby’s life—even if he never expected to be a father, even if Erin doesn’t really trust him.

They’ll work out an arrangement in the best interest of their baby—and if they occasionally have sex, well, that’s just an added perk—but they both agree on one thing.

What they have will never be love.

hurricane

Olivia Statler hates Logan Hayes. It’s not the fact that he’s an executive of a rival travel company, or the fact that he’s trying to buy her company, or even the fact that he won’t leave her alone. Two years ago, the two of them seemed to have something that was amazing and real, but Logan’s ego got in the way.

When a new resort offers her an all-expense-paid trip to woo new clients, she figures that a working vacation is just what she needs.

Gwen

When I close my eyes and manage to block out the horrors going on around me and ignore the aches and pain in virtually every inch of my body, I can still hear the cheers of the audience as I’m lifted into the air by my teammates. For those few brief moments as I remember toppling from the top of the pyramid I feel like I’m flying, I’m free and nothing can hurt me.

But, I was wrong…

How long would it take before they stopped missing me; stopped looking; before I was forgotten about completely? A month? Six months? A year? I’m no longer a person. I’m a commodity.

Lance

I have a plan, years in the making. It’s perfect – foolproof. All I need is to keep myself focused on the big picture – my ultimate goal. But then she arrived…

She tests my patience and my will. She angers and frustrates me, making the darkness within scream to be released. I want to ignore her, but I can’t. I need to let her go, but can’t seem to allow her to be sent away.

She’s going to ruin everything…

the intern

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest.

She wants it. She takes it.
She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth.

When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets “Ceci,” he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change.

He’s the boss. She’s the intern.
Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules.

Then again, some rules were made to be broken.

What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more–secrets, lies, deceit.

intern 2

My cock noticed her before I did.
She came out of nowhere.
Completely unexpected.

And I let her in…unwillingly.
But she gave me no choice.

She sledgehammered my thick walls, leaving me charmed by her knowledge, and seduced by her beauty.

I was captivated.

And now…it was about to tumble down in a tsunami of lies.
Uncertainty riveted my core as my anger spread…she was impossible to forget.
After all, she was still my intern.

Forbidden.
Lust.
Betrayal.

I felt all of those things for her at once. But only one would destroy us.

Book Review – Pleasures of a Dark Prince (Immortals After Dark #9) – Kresley Cole

Something unexpected happened. In retrospect I guess it was bound to happen but I have to say it blindsided me. After falling in love with this series, rating every book 4.5 – 5 stars, I finally bumped into the one I didn’t fall in love with.

Pleasures of a Dark Prince is Garreth MacRieve’s story. I was so excited because I think Lykae’s are my favorite immortals in this series… they’re just that much sweeter in my opinion. So anyway, in book #2, we met Garreth. He is Lachlain’s younger brother and therefore a Prince. Garreth is out playing rugby when he scents his mate, Lucia. He immediately pursues her…

The way he looked at her was consuming, savouring – as if she were the most beautiful creature on earth and he’d ben starved for the sight of her.

…but she rejects him. He vows to find out everything about her.

Lucia is a Valkyrie and the best archer in the world. But her gift did not come from practice. No, she was gifted her gift. See, at sixteen, she met a man and fell in love with him, turns out the man is the devil. Seriously. In her escape, she was helped by the skathi goddess who gave her the gift. However, she always has to hit her target or she’ll felt pain like she’s never known. Also, the devil wakes up every 500 years or so and she has to go put him back to slumber. And so that is her mission. Only now she has a Lykae trailing her, because he has to have her and protect her. Oh and did I mention Lucia can’t have sex? That’s another of her punishments… and this Lykae is not taking no for an answer.

So like I said, this series has been the best thing I’ve come across in a very long time. I expected to fall in love yet again and I did not. And here’s why. Lucia admittedly had her share of problems, so she had to avoid Garreth. It just annoyed me how much she hurt him. In escaping him, hiding from him, it just exasperated me. I get she had her reasons but I grew tired. Then there’s the fact that the secondary characters were mortals and it was set in the amazon… I was bored. I didn’t skim, but the story was exciting in the beginning and the end, the middle was just tedious.

The saving grace? Garreth. A sexy alpha male with a big heart. He did everything for Lucia – protected her, loved her…

“You are everything to me!” He wrapped her hair around his fist, forcing her to meet his frenzied gaze. “Why can I no’ be that for you? Let me claim you for my own. Choose me this night…”

Sigh… Another saving grace? The last few chapters… just really beautiful…

“You canna know how much I’ve wanted to hear you telling’ me you love me.” He stared at the ground looking lost. “And I want to make you happy, crave to.”

So he made the book for me…. All in all, I can’t wait for the next book so that I can reconnect with my favorite series.

3 stars.

Blog Tour: Book Review + Giveaway – Night Owl – M. Pierce

Just yesterday I was one of the few people who hadn’t read this book. Now? I’m one of the hundreds in love with everything Night Owl! Contrary to what you may think, I wasn’t living under a rock, I’d heard of the book and read all the praises but for some reason I just never picked the book up… now I’m wondering why the hell it took me so long?!

Night Owl is the story of Matt, a writer. He meets another writer online who goes by the name Little Bird. Matt’s online name is Night Owl. Matt doesn’t want to know the person behind Little Bird. He’s content on co-writting, until Little Bird unknowingly sends him an email from her personal account which also has her picture. Now Matt can’t stop thinking about Hannah, the little Bird. Their online conversation veers into the sexual and now they can’t stop thinking about each other. Add to that the fact that they will be living in the same state, and meeting is inevitable.

Sigh, this book tugged at my heartstrings. It started out very smutty and I immediately pegged it to be one of those ;) I devoured it hungrily, until the smut turned into something deeper… and then I was lost to the story. I never wanted it to end which was sad because I couldn’t put it down!

Matt has a lot of secrets that he’s keeping from Hannah, and the biggest is his identity. And that there is the catalyst that changed the book from good ol’ smut into something else… something deeper. Matt changed from a dominant dirty talker to this wonderfully complex man and I fell for him completely. I have to admit, I love a man who can cry and when they do I just melt. So yes, Matt won major points for being sensitive under his macho exterior.

The book is told in Matt’s POV which is an experience in itself. It was funny and different… I definitely can’t wait to see where their story goes!

4 stars!

night

Excerpt

Matt had a sprawling, high-rise apartment in downtown Denver. I probably should have guessed. The rooms were clean and modern, harshly white, with light hardwood floors and gorgeous area rugs. The fixtures were all of matching brushed metal and the décor was spare but tasteful. I recognized a framed John Singer Sargent print on the wall.

Matt loomed as I padded through the neat, quiet rooms. Each time I smiled at him, I thought I caught a glimmer of anxiety in his expression. Why would he be nervous? Was my opinion really that important to him?

“This place is lovely,” I said. “It’s amazing. I can’t believe it was ever messy.”

“Oh, I had a maid come through,” he said.

“Laurence!” I squealed when I saw the rabbit’s hutch in the living room. The hutch was as swanky as Matt’s apartment, made of beautiful varnished wood with little gold knobs.

“Your lady love is back,” Matt said to the rabbit.

We watched Laurence hop around his hutch for a while. Matt’s hovering was making me uneasy—and strangely aroused. He hadn’t touched me yet, but I knew he planned to. I assumed his bedroom was down the hall.

Was something wrong? Tension and desire made my stomach clench.

We drifted into the kitchen, Matt right at my back.

“Nice.” I swallowed and brushed my hand over the granite countertop. Even the kitchen was immaculate.

I could feel Matt behind me. I thought I heard him take a soft breath. My skin prickled. God, if he didn’t touch me soon—

I exhaled in a rush as Matt brought his chest flush against my back. He pinned me to the edge of the island and cupped my breasts from behind. I moaned.

“Are you ready?” he whispered in my ear.

inevitable

After experiencing a humiliating breakup, twenty-two-year-old Cassandra Clarke is fresh out of college and living a simple solitary life without any intentions of pursuing love anytime soon.

It’s through Oliver, Logan’s four-year-old son, who keeps popping up in her childhood tree house, that she slowly begins to catch glimpses of the compassionate and wounded man Logan has hidden beneath his strong exterior.

Cassandra knows it’s wrong and that she’s heading for another heartbreak.
Logan will never be able to give her what she wants…love.

Keen to learn more about his scandalous activities, she joins him at Candle Street Hall in Norfolk, a house with a reputation darker still.

Elizabeth DeVille doesn’t belong at a party like this–one where the gowns cost more than her Camry and cigars run higher than her grad school utility bills. Dragged out of seclusion by her best friend Suri, Elizabeth is merely playing dress-up, rubbing elbows with a crowd that banished her troubled family years ago.

Hunter West is tired. Tired of parties, tired of pretending, and tired of trying to right a wrong that haunts him every day. Bourbon heir and professional poker player by day, by night Hunter is gambling with his life in a high-stakes game of crime and blackmail.

When Elizabeth stumbles into Hunter’s den of vices, she’s a light in the darkness, a flame in the void. And, just like everything he touches, Hunter mars her in a record time. To rectify the damage done, Elizabeth needs money she doesn’t have, and she’s come up with a foolproof way to get it.

Follow Elizabeth–code-named Scarlett–to the lush Nevada brothel where she’ll auction her virginity and risk the only thing that’s not for sale: her heart. The highest bidder is a familiar face, with wicked hands and the devil’s mouth. And a secret so dark that it could cost her life.

He’s done what he can to keep me out of danger, but it’s not enough. I need answers. I need the truth. He refuses to give it to me, and because of that I don’t trust him. He refuses to tell me what really happened and to just forget about it but I refuse.

I won’t back down until I get answers.

But there’s one thing wrong with getting too many answers. It leads to lies. It leads to trouble. It leads to danger. But worst of all, it leads to me falling deeply and madly in love with him.

I’ve gotta be out of my mind.

Jayne was always the one person he could count on in his life. Now Nick is starting to realize that he never wants her to leave again . . . and that being “just friends” isn’t going to be enough anymore.

Book Review – The Saint (The Original Sinners: White Years #1) – Tiffany Reisz

Officially a favorite of 2014! Tiffany Reisz writes BDSM Erotica… actually scratch that, she writes like no one else can. It’s thought provoking, it’s clever, it’s witty, it’s steamy… I just never wanted this book to end!

As we know by now, The White Years take us back to the time when Nora and Søren met. She was almost 16, in a Catholic Girls High School, living with her mother and questioning the existence of God. Her mother coerces her into going to church to impress the new priest. See, her fees are paid by the church and with a new priest, things might change. Nora agrees to go to church only because she learns that the new priest drives a Ducati. Once there, she sees him. Father Marcus Stearns, or Søren as he introduces himself to her. She falls in love with him immediately. He’s hot yes, hotter that anyone she’s ever seen… but also, it feels like fate, like they’re meant to be. Two problems; he’s a priest and he’s 29.

We know how their story goes because we’ve of course read The Red Years, but this was the insight into their relationship I had been longing for. The Saint is all about their beginning, what it was that drew them to each other. How strong their connection is, and this for me was vital. I was one of the few who were convinced that Nora should try a normal relationship (until I read The Mistress of course.) But in The Saint you realise that these two are soul mates.

“There are three eternal truths about me you have to know: I love Søren. I belong to Søren. And I will go back to Søren.

I absolutely enjoyed this book. I loved the moments of desperation, where they want to be with each other so much but couldn’t. I laughed out loud when they bantered and ached when they ached. It was just one of those books where the author manipulates your emotions just right. Where you feel everything she intends you to feel. Even when I warred with myself about some things… some caveats if you will that I actually should discuss…

One: As a former Catholic girls high school student, I guess my experience with the book is different from that of your average reader. It has nothing to do with religion, or maybe it does, I’m not sure. I just feel as though Søren is potrayed more as a god. He does have his many flaws but overall I feel like even those are meant to show us how absolutely miraculous it is that he overcame them to be this perfect being. Which is strange because he’s actually far from perfect. I felt like Nora treated him as if he walked on water…

This was what she’d wanted since the day they met. She’d wanted to serve him, to kneel before him, to offer herself to be used by him. Every day he sacrificed himself on the alter of the Catholic Church -gave up his time, his wealth, his freedom. That she could give this one thing to him, the pleasure of using her, and she would give it with all her heart, body and soul.

She basically worships the man… I mean, there were things he did, things he said that made me absolutely swoon for him but the way she spoke about him made me feel a tad weird. Again, these are just my feelings, to each his own.

Two: Nora keeps leaving a trail of broken hearts. Sigh… it makes me slightly angry for some reason. I was a huge fan of Wesley and we all know how that went… and well, let’s just say it happens a second time in this book and…. I mean, she knows she’ll never leave Søren. Maybe that took years for her to understand but she shouldn’t start relationships with other people is my opinion. She just keeps hurting the poor men!

Ok, so I ranted a bit, but I will say this is why I love these books and why I just have to declare Tiffany Reisz my favorite author. This is not just erotica for the sake of steam. It makes me pause and have these weird debates in my head, it teaches me, it scares me (because jeez, Søren is a Sadist with a capital S) and when I’m done, I want to start it all over again because nothing I read next will measure up.

5 stars!

Kieran Donovan has always been a doormat to the women in his life. Begging his wife not to leave after finding her in bed with not one—but five men—only provides further proof of that.

In need of an escape from an empty house and a broken heart, Kieran heads to Midtown to see his estranged brother, Liam. There he meets Shayne Wickham, Liam’s best friend. Shayne’s dark and sexy with a wild streak a mile long and a sexual appetite for things Kieran’s never even dreamed of doing. But after an intense, and all too brief encounter, he’s more than willing to learn. Despite the usual safeguards Shayne keeps around herself and her own wounded heart, she finds herself more than willing to show him the ropes…and the floggers…and the paddles.

Kieran’s never seen himself as dominant in any aspect of his life. But when Shayne submits herself to him, it ignites an inner strength and hunger he never knew he had—and feelings Shayne didn’t know she could have. So used to keeping others at an arm’s length, the ease with which she finds herself trusting Kieran is both exciting and unsettling. Could Kieran be someone she could finally trust her heart to—or will he leave her scarred like everyone else?

This is His world. His way.

There is only one question the man will not answer…

 

seduction

All women look the same on their knees with their lips wrapped around my cock. 

You like to think you’re different, special somehow. But trust me, I’ll have you wet and begging for it before you can think of all those bullshit, good girl reasons why not.

I’m your darkest secret. Your dirtiest fantasy.

Who am I?

The Seducer.

And I’ve never lost a case.

Until her. Keely Fawes. My mysterious new target.

Someone wants to destroy her — and I’m their weapon of choice.

Her secrets could be my undoing. Her innocence will ruin me.

But I don’t care.

I’m going to show her how fucking good it feels to be bad. She’ll come screaming my name if it’s the last thing I do.

seduction 2

Show me a woman who doesn’t like to be dominated, and I’ll show you a fucking liar.

It’s OK, you can admit it. I won’t tell. You want it rough and deep and dirty. You want to hear the steel in my voice when I tell you exactly how to please me. And you want to know, I won’t hesitate to punish you if you don’t follow my commands to the letter.

Yeah, that’s right. I’ll punish you, and I won’t go gentle either. I’ll bend you over and spank that sweet ass until it’s branded with my handprint. Until it hurts so good, you forget where the line is between pleasure and pain.

Who am I? The Seducer. And now I’m in way over my head.

I thought she was just a job to me, another girl to screw. But now she’s under my skin, and I can’t just walk away. My secrets are spiraling out of control, but I can’t quit now. She doesn’t realize the danger she’s facing — or that her biggest threat is me.

I want to protect her, but I could wind up destroying us both.

In the beginning, her life was bland. Like she was living in a world lacking color. Nothing stood out. Nothing seemed to matter.

Then, with one single drop, the colorless world she lived in burst into something more. Something vibrant, and brave.

He was that drop, the one that shook the foundation of her life to its’ core. He unraveled to her that was suffocating in a world she didn’t belong in. He was the color she’d been searching for.

From the moment they reconnect, it is clear to Eve the passion, brilliance, and determination that first attracted her to Jake are stronger than ever. So strong that fighting their pull seems useless. But falling back in love isn’t as easy as letting the walls down. Eve soon realizes the choices they’ve both made come with consequences. Ones that will test how deep her love runs for a man living with a storm inside.

give

Here’s the deal… I learned a long time ago that sometimes you have to use what you’ve got to make things happen. What I happen to have is a pretty smile, long legs and the ability to make men believe anything I say. Before you get on your high horse and start judging me, can you honestly say you’ve never batted your lashes at some guy for a free drink at the bar? That’s what I thought.

Keep that in mind as I tell you my story of how I took it one step further. My story of lies, deceit, manipulation and love. Yeah, love. Believe me, it fits. Especially, when you factor in Nick and Tucker – one had my heart and the other one wanted it all for himself. Which one? Well, I can’t tell you that. It would defeat the purpose of the story. If I’m going to fill you in about me, Lila Garrison, and my life as a con artist you’re going to need to know all the facts, including the ones about the two guys who made me want to give up the life of fancy clothes, expensive jewelry, fast cars and easy money. Because sometimes, one person can give you something that’s more valuable than all of that.

If you’re still interested, stick around. Just remember, I’m pretty good at convincing people to do what I want, so if by the end of this whole thing you feel worked over, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
