Review

Guilt is a poison that consumes our body and never lets it go. It’s even worse when it’s survivors guilt after losing someone that you love. That is the struggle that Zee has throughout the whole book. His brother died seemingly of an OD and he feels guilty not only because he survived but because of what happened right before Marc died.

Alexis knows a thing or two about guilt. She is drowning in it as well as she watches her twin sister go down a road that can only lead to her death. She is connected to her sister and only wants what is best for her but how do you help them without putting yourself in danger? That is really the big question of the hour.

This book dives into those emotions that we feel when we have to say good bye to someone that we love and mourn the fact that they are no longer the people that we once knew. Zee and Alexis are two different heads of the same coin. They have a lot of similarities which makes sense that they would find solace in the other. What I love is that we see the struggle of wanting what they want and also making sure to keep promises that were made in the past.

There were times that Zee annoyed me, but in a good way. I always get frustrated when one of the people in the couple keeps pushing away the other because ‘its for their own good’. Zee thinks that Alexis deserves better than him but can’t seem to keep himself away. That’s why when they finally get together its one of those HALLELUJAH moments. There is a big build up before they get together and

Zee is that poor puppy dog that you just want to wrap up in a bubble and protect. He may be a man by age but he is still a lost boy who is trying to find his way in the world. I could feel everything that he was feeling as we go through the book and try to understand how he got to be a part of Sunder. I am glad and happy to see that he finally grew up to be a man and get his HEA.

Compared to the other books (because it’s hard not to when it’s a book series) is that it’s not my favorite of the series. I did enjoy reading it and liked it, but I think that the last book is still my favorite in the series.

‘The Wright Boss’ by KA Linde has Landon trying to win the girl of his dreams

 

TWBoss iBooksA new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

 Review

I absolutely loved the first book and I was so happy to know that this book is just as good as the first one. Like the first one, there is a lot of angst between Heidi and Landon. Once he becomes her boss, their relationship becomes forbidden fruit for the other.

And of course neither one can resist.

Heidi is stuck between her heart and her mind and that struggle of what she wants most spells bad news for Landon. As we see more of Heidi’s character and the past (especially with her father) we see why she is a little hesitant to let Landon in. Add to the fact that Landon has more baggage then an airplane, it would make anyone hesitate to begin a relationship with him.

But Landon. He is beyond swoon worthy. I thought Jensen was the perfect man but after seeing Landon with Heidi, I am beginning to wonder if I am wrong. Landon has his issues because Miranda is crazy and only wants Landon because of his money. We get to see even more of the ugly that is inside of her and wonder (much like his siblings) what he ever saw in Miranda.

The romance part of the book??! Hot DAY-UM! It’s hotter than what happen in the first book because the forbidden nature of the relationship. They have to hide what they feel for one another not only for their jobs but because of the fact that Landon is going through an ugly divorce with Miranda. Reading the angst between them made me feel that I was in the moment with them.

This family has their problems, much like any family does, but KA Linde shows that while their may be problems with the siblings, they will stop at nothing to help one another out. I love the back and forth that Landon has with his siblings and how he relies on each one of them for different things. Much like we all do with our siblings.

KA Linde does a great job at setting up the next book that will feature Austin and most likely Julia. We see a peak into how their relationship started and what happened and we also get inklings of the problems that they have a head. I can’t wait to see where the story takes us.

‘Lawless’ by Teagan Kade will have you wanting more

image

Full Blurb

She’s never come before, and I never fail to satisfy.

I’m the brother-in-law who doesn’t play by the rules.

No one delivers between the sheets like I do.

I had it all once—a pro hockey contract, money, an endless line of women looking for that special kind of action only my big stick could provide.

Then I went and screwed everything up.

I let my brother walk away with the best thing in my life.

But he’s gone, and I’m back, ready to take what should have been mine from the start.

Wren’s pretty blue eyes and perfect curves beckon me, still make me iron hard.

She has no idea how bad I want her, how much I dream about her soft lips and tight body.

I know she’s ready for me—all of me, know only my big D can deliver the big O she’s been craving for so long.

Question is, do I go gentle, or do I go hard?

This cover for ‘Most Valuable Playboy’ is certainly a MVP

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy, new standalone sports romance releasing September 1st, MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY! Told from the guy’s POV, MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY will hit retailers just in time to celebrate the start of fall and football season! The audiobook is slated for a simultaneous release and will be narrated by Zachary Webber! Don’t miss the amazing cover and blurb below!

About MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY:

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the owner’s handsy-as-hell sister who seems dead set on winning more than a date with me at the auction.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me the next day that we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.

Violet says she’ll take one for the team and pretend to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport. And soon enough, I want this game with her to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

*MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!*

Amity and Carver set up a challenge in ‘Battle of the Sexes’ by Adriana Locke

BLURB

​:
​BATTLE OF THE SEXES
Carver Jones’ partner at Jones + Gallum had to step down for medical reasons. He’s absolutely devastated. He swears. Just ignore his cheeky grin, okay?

 

When word reaches his fancy corner office that Gallum is replacing himself with his daughter, Amity, Carver is ecstatic.

 

For real this time.

 

Jones squashes men in the business industry flat. A woman? Pfst. He’ll be completely in charge in no time, doing whatever he wants. He’s so ready for this.

 

But is he ready to fight the hardest fight of his life? No, not the one to maintain control of his company. The one to keep control of his heart.

 

The battle may begin in the boardroom, but the war will definitely be won in the bedroom. May the best sex win.

​EXCERPT :

​BATTLE OF THE SEXES
​“There’s a woman here to see you, Mr. Jones,” Marisa chirps through the line.

“Send her in.”

Swiping a set of files from the corner of my desk, I spread them in front of me in a haphazard, I’ve-been-doing-this-all-day, kind of way. Not that I haven’t been working since before the sun came up. I have. But that’s not the point.

The point is this: first impressions matter most. It sets the stage for every other interaction, regardless of the relationship. And the relationship I’m about to have with Amity Gallum, as co-CEO’s of Jones + Gallum, will be the most important one in my life.

Hell, it might be the only one in my life, but that’s irrelevant.

The door handle flicks. I bow my head and appear to be so invested in the numbers in front of me that I don’t hear it. I’ll force her to break the ice. I don’t break for anyone.

My stomach begins to knot as I wait for her to say something. I imagine her standing in the doorway, a load of binders in her hand, as she looks at me over the top of those clunky glasses she wore when we were kids. I hope to God she upgraded those in the last twenty years.

Frustration grows with each second she doesn’t bother to speak, and after more moments than I care to admit, I finally look up.

Holy. Shit.

One thing is clear—this isn’t Amity Gallum. There’s no way this stunner is the braces-wearing, freckle-faced, nerdy little girl I knew in elementary school. No. Freaking Way.

After making a quick mental note to tell Marisa to not assume I know who is here to see me, I feast my eyes on the voluptuous visitor. My lips twist into a smirk as I try to keep myself composed. “Good afternoon,” I say smoothly.

“Yes, it is.”

It takes every bit of effort I can manage to keep my jaw from dropping. Even after all this time, I recognize that voice.

Black stilettos do nothing but extend long, lean legs that are capped off with a black skirt. A white top, rounded at the chest by a full set of tits, has a tailored black jacket on top. Loose, blonde curls touch her shoulders.

She. Definitely. Upgraded.

“Can I help you?” I grin, rifling through all the ways I can–and hope to be–helping her later.

Her blue eyes pin me to my chair, clearly unamused by my reaction to her “fuck me” body. “No, but I can help you find a restraining order if you don’t stop looking at me like that, Carver.”

“Like what?” I grin.

“Like you’re a ten-year-old boy that wants to pick me for Seven Minutes in Heaven.”

“You still think about that?”

“Yes,” she smiles. “You come to mind any time any guy is being an asshole.”

With a half-laugh, I try to rebound. “That’s no way to talk to your boss.”

A fire lights up her eyes. “Let’s get one thing straight: you are not my boss. We are co-CEO’s of this company.” Her narrow shoulders throw back, her mouth forming a tight, thin line. “If you think you’re going to bend me over, you have another think coming.”

“Do you prefer another position?”

“I don’t like you,” she glares. “I won’t like you. And,” she says, storming in and getting comfortable on the sofa across from my desk, “if you get in my way, I will make you pay.”

Challenge accepted.

Review: ‘Road to Ruin’ by Callie Hart and Jonny James has Nikita and Tommy going down a dark road together

Format: e-book, paperback
Format read: e-book
Series: book 1 of New Orleans Night series
Rating: 18+ sexual content, language
Genre: Dark Romance
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34773563-road-to-ruin?from_search=true

It’s been a few days since I finished the book and I still am not completely sure how I feel about the book. I know that I want to read the next book in the series but I am not sure that I am going to want to buy it the day that it comes out. The first quarter of the book was hard to get through because we get introduced to the world that Tommy and Nikita are a part of.

Nikita works for the prison and is trying to help out one of her patients but by doing so, she finds herself knee deep in a whole lot of trouble. And his name begins with Tommy. Tommy is trying to do anything that he can to save his sister but Nikita throws a wrench in his plans. It becomes a power struggle for him because he wants to protect his sister, but can’t seem to stay away from Nikita.

The relationship between Nikita and Tommy is where I have the hardest time with accepting. They go from a one-night stand (a pretty hot and steamy one night stand that was explosive) to the point where they are willing to do anything for the other. For me, it just didn’t seem believable that they would both give up everything for the other after a handful of scenes together. I hope that there is more to them in the next book.

Despite the fact that I don’t care for the relationship of them together, I do like Tommy and Nikita as characters individual. Tommy is the right kind of bad boy with a good heart and it’s hard not to be a little swooning when you see how dedicated he is to try and save his sister. Nikita is not that sweet girl that you see on the surface, but rather she is someone that can kick your butt if you mess with her in the wrong way. That scene at the bar is priceless and I would love to see that play out in real life.

While the story is a bit slow in the beginning, it does pick up towards the middle. There is a cliffhanger ending, but not a super big one, just enough to let you know that there is a whole lol left of this story and to hang on for the next book.

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and moulding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.

Callie Hart is the author of the Blood & Roses Series. Zeth & Sloane’s story is now complete, but there are a number of stories still to be released under the Blood & Roses banner. 2015 will see Cade, Michael and Rebel’s stories being released, as well as a number of brand new stories, all of which will be Dark Romance novels.
