WickedGrind_Ecover_FINAL_RSometimes it feels so damn good to be bad

Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centerpiece of his sexy, controversial show. Find her, and Wyatt is sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well why their relationship ended all those years ago.

Determined to break free from her good girl persona, Kelsey wants spice. Adventure. And she’s certain that Wyatt is just the man to help.

But when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control—on camera and in his bed—Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Because how can a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?

All Wicked novels stand alone

Synopsis

She’s the light from his past.


He’s the one her heart has always longed for. 
Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in. 
When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.
Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was. 
His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul. 
One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.
***
This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.

Review
Heartbreakingly beautiful.

That is it.

That is what this story is.

It tells the story of Christopher Walker who has been dealt a really crappy hand with a father who abused him and his sister and killed his mother. But was saved from that life from Faith and Cade.

But it was Alissa that saved him from himself. Until he goes to war and comes out a broken man.

Much like the other Men of Honor series, we see the transformation of Christopher as he goes from shy, 15 year old boy thinking he’s worthless to the alpha male man that is plagued by a decision that haunts him for his life.

This story is one of the darkest stories from KC Lynn (with Unlawful Justice still being the darkest for me) and she does it in a way that doesn’t have you give up hope. She showcases the struggle that soldiers have to deal with when coming home from war that you would have thought she fought in a war herself. I was completely immersed in this story that I forgot that it was just that. A story. I felt like I was living it, feeling the ache that Christopher has to deal with on a daily basis.

Now for the lighter side (or the side we all love) romance! Yes there are scorching scenes and if you follow her on Facebook you know a few of the scenes I’m talking about. I love the connection between Alissa and Christopher because I am one of those hopeless romantics that think love can help heal all wounds. 

In my eyes KC Lynn can write no wrong. It’s getting to the point that I wonder if she will even write a book I wouldn’t like. She has a whimsical way of writing that makes you relate to the characters but when it gets real, you feel that pain with you. It’s amazing writing and I can’t see what she has in store for us next.



Excerpt

One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.
Something passes between us.
A decision.
A choice.
No more fighting this.
“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.
The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.
A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”
I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.
At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.
He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.
His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.
His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.
                “So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.
                 I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.
                Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.
                “Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”
                “Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?
                “Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”
                His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.
                What we did have.
                “The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”
                “Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.
                He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.
                Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.
                “Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”

COVER DESIGNER: HANG LE

 

Wicked Favor AMAZONNew York Times bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, is happy to introduce a new Wicked Horse club in Las Vegas and you’re cordially invited to attend the grand opening…

As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.

Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.

As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

‘Throne of Truth’ by Pepper Winters is a book unlike any of her others


Throne of Truth, the thrilling conclusion to Crown of Lies from New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, is available now!

 

Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters

Publication Date: February 28th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

TWO YEARS

Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.

 

TWO DAYS

Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.

 

TWO HOURS

To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.

 

TWO MINUTES

For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.

 

TWO SECONDS

For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.

 

TWO BREATHS

For me to walk out the door.

 

TWO HEARTBEATS

For it all to be over.


Review

This book surprised me. In a very good way. I have read quite a few books from Pepper Winters and she has a certain way of writing that leaves you clutching your e-reader crying out and cursing that ever made the decision to read one of her books.
Been there done that.
This book is different though. While this one has some dark themes it does not quite reach that level that her other books have (ie Tears of Tess). This book focuses more on the relationship of Penn and Elle and what it takes to actually make it work. And you know that part that sucks the most. Is that I miss the ludicrous things that Winters does. I miss those dark erotic things that I have come to love from her because I hate to break it to you. This book has none of that.
For a good portion of the book Elle and Penn aren’t even together. Circumstances pull them apart and they spent the majority of the book trying to get back to one another. On the one hand, it’s great because we get all the answers to all our questions. But on the other hand, it does drag on in places.
I love Pepper Winters writing because she is not afraid to address the dark issues that exist in the world. She dabbles in our own dark fantasies and brings them to life. I hope that we get back to that with the next book.

K. Bromberg writes a hit in ‘Sweet Rivalry’

sweetriv

SWEET RIVALRY

By K. Bromberg

Release Day: Feb 28, 2017

 

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.

Review

Going into this story I thought it was a small novella for her Driven series but I was pleasantly surprised to be rewarded with just a short story about two new characters. It follows Harper and Ryder, two people who have been rivals since they were in grade school only to have the rivalry continue on as adults.

A sweet rivalry it is.

Sorry couldn’t help myself.

Anyways, Harper, like many of us females in a world that is run my men. She is trying to prove that a situation from her past doesn’t dictate the worker that she really is. 

Ryder tries to keep his personal feelings out of the job but the more that he sees her the more that he knows that he can’t resist her. Harper is the type of woman who doesn’t put up with anyone’s BS and I love that she doesn’t just give in to Ryder just because they have chemistry. He has to work for it which leads to a very explosive night for both of them.

I love K. Bromberg’s writing and how she can create these characters that are like a match and fuel. Once ignited, it burns hot and can not be ignored. I can’t wait to see where Bromberg takes us next.

EXCERPT:

He takes a step toward me then hesitates, but before I can process anything else, his lips are on mine.

And not just on mine––not just a brush of lips against lips—but I’m talking all in. Hands on my cheeks, tongue licking between my lips, body pressed against mine, groan in the back of his throat, type of all in.

I don’t react at first. I’m stunned. Flabbergasted, my mind reeling from the anger to the surprise to now this without any warning at all.

This is Ryder.

My rival.

My supporter.

My crush.

The thoughts flicker that this is what I’ve wanted. But they soon shift to panic. To insecurity I don’t kiss well enough. That this is all a joke and I’m the butt of it.

But then I feel. Everything. All at once.

And I know this is real.

It’s like I can’t catch my breath and have too much air all at the same time.

My body is on fire. And not just from his touch but from that burn deep inside that feels like it’s exploding and imploding all at once.

So this is what it feels like to really be kissed.

It’s a fleeting thought before the sensations, the moment, the emotions, consume me whole.

His hands move my face to change the angle of the kiss. His fingertips on the line of my jaw singe my skin. His lips move expertly against mine, and all I can do is feel. All I can do is want.

Thinking isn’t an option.

The anger from before has morphed to want. The adrenaline has recharged with desire.

There is no rivalry.

There is no graduation ceremony tomorrow I’m missing to catch my flight.

There is no panic over if I’ll ever see him again.

It’s just him.

And me.

The scent of his cologne in my nose. The heat of his body against mine. The taste of hunger in his kiss.

‘The Wright Brother’ by KA Linde has Jensen and Emery learning how to trust

THE WRIGHT BROTHER

By K.A Linde

Standalone – Contemporary Romance

Release Day: February 28th, 2017

 

 

I’d dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

EXCERPT

Her smile was magnetic, and I just wanted to kiss her. I mean…I’d wanted to kiss her all night. But sitting there, in front of the last lit house, with Christmas music playing in the background and her smile radiating joy, there was nowhere else I’d rather be. That thought hit me so suddenly and I didn’t even know why.

I put my truck into park, leaned over to her side of the car, and pushed my hand up into her dark hair. She froze, silhouetted by the light display behind her. Her eyes locked with mine, green meeting brown, and her eyes widened with surprise. She breathed out softly, and I could feel her pulse ratchet up at my touch.

This was the girl who had pulled me across the room at Sutton’s wedding, like a magnet finding its pair. This was the tension that I’d felt when we first spoke. Here was the world of desire and lust that had clouded both of our minds ever since our first kiss.

My face was only inches from hers. I wanted to take what was mine. I wanted to claim her mouth and then her body right here in the cab of my truck, like we were young, wild, and carefree.

But, instead, I couldn’t seem to stop staring at her.

She laughed lightly to try to defuse the tension. But it wasn’t possible, and it was a feeble effort.

“Are you going to kiss me?” she whispered boldly.

I didn’t need any further prodding. I crushed my lips against hers. It was like striking a match. Our lips moved against each other, desperate with the need to get closer, to have more. She opened her mouth for me, and I brushed my tongue against hers. The groan that emanated from deep in the back of her throat made my dick twitch. Our tongues volleyed for position. She was just as aching for attention as I was.

I heard the click of her belt buckle, and soon, she was pushing her body closer, moving over the divide of my truck. My hands fell to her ass, and I effortlessly hoisted her up and into my seat. She squeaked in shock but didn’t break contact. Instead, she straddled me and let her hands wander across my chest.

My hands never left her ass because, damn, did that woman have an ass. She was grinding up against me, and I moved into a full-blown hard-on at her ministrations. She must have realized what she was doing to me because, when she swiveled her hips in place, she moaned against the feel of my dick.

In that moment, I didn’t give a shit that we were acting like teenagers, parked outside of a stranger’s house, bucking against each other for just an ounce of satisfaction. I was ready to strip her bare and fuck her until she forgot every word to every Christmas song and only remembered my name.

That was, until she rocked back just a little too hard, and a loud honk erupted from the hood of the truck.

Review

I was so excited to read this book, and start this new series, by KA Linde because I absolutely loved her Record series. And I am happy to report that she did not disappoint.

Emery comes back to her hometown of Lubbock Texas after a bad breakup with her boyfriend and all she wants to do is forget about her past. But that all goes down the drain when a deeper part of her past comes up and she runs into a familiar face of Jensen Wright, the brother of the man who broke her heart in high school.

Jensen has his own things going on. Some bits and pieces. While they go into the relationship both thinking its going to be a fling we as readers know that just ain’t going to happen. Sure enough, Jensen finds himself falling for Emery hard and fast and it turns his life in a tailspin because it’s like he forgets how to be a person. He says stupid things (which we all have done), he does stupid (again guilty), but the fact that he never quits is what makes you root for him.

I love the dynamic of their relationship. They both have a hard past and dealt with people who cheated on them so naturally trust will be an issue. Once they get over that hurdle (which is a big one), they become that romantic couple that is too cute that it makes you sick. I was just happy that we got to see a lot of those moments because I really like reading them together.

While I love the couple and their relationship, the story did lack that ‘shocking factor’. The twist of the story will likely be guessed by most of you out there but that does nothing to deter from the story. For me, it actually enhanced it even though I knew what was going to happen.

This is part of a new series where it will follow a new couple with each book. The kind of series that I like and I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us.

Rating: B+
