Get in on the secret for KA Linde’s new book ‘The Wright Secret’

A new brother’s-best-friend stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I was just his best friend’s little sister.

But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.

There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.

So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

About DIRTY FILTHY FIX:

I like sex. Kinky sex. The kinkier the better.

Every day, it’s all I think about as I serve coffee and hand out business agendas to men who have no idea I’m not the prim, proper girl they think I am.

With a day job as the secretary to one of New York’s most powerful men, Hudson Pierce, I have to keep my double life quiet. As long as I do, it’s not a problem.

Enter: Nathan Sinclair. Tall, dark and handsome doesn’t come close to describing how hot he is. And that’s with his clothes on. But after a dirty, filthy rendezvous, I accept that if we ever see each other again, he’ll walk right by my desk on his way to see my boss without recognizing me.

Only, that’s not what happens. Not the first time I see him after the party. Or the next time. Or the time after that. And as much as I try to stop it, my two worlds are crashing into each other, putting my job and my reputation at risk.

And all I can think about is Nathan Sinclair.

All I can think about is getting just one more dirty, filthy fix.

Review

We have met Trish in the Fixed trilogy. She is Hudson’s secretary and we have already gotten a look into her life through his and Alayna’s eyes. But seeing the world in her own is a lot more dark and dirty then you would think.

She is a woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to go after it. She has the kind of confidence that most of wish we had, especially with our sexuality, but it all gets challenged when Nate Sinclair enters her life. He is a man that is used to getting what he wants. And what he wants is Trish. I love reading the struggle between Nate and Trish as they both try to keep their control in the relationship and not let the other get to close.

The ‘romance’ part is certainly a lot kinkier and dirtier then we have read in the rest of the series. Paige takes it up a notch in this story and certainly will have you blushing at the end of the scenes. This story is not  for the faint at heart. There is a lot of BDSM, voyeurism, bonding, and domination. It’s very intense and dark and certainly a different look into the world.

Like I do with the other books, I wish that we would have gotten more of a story for Nate and Trish. I would have loved to seen more of their backgrounds and how they got into the lifestyle that they like. We get a dabble of it, but not enough to really satisfy me. But that’s the point right? To leave you wanting more. Well Ms. Paige, you have succeeded.

About Laurelin Paige:

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

The last book in the USA Today Bestselling Dollar Series.


Review

The last book left us on such a big cliffhanger that we were still falling as we started reading this book. I started frantically going through the book, desperate to know what happened to Pim and Elder. When I find out, I almost dropped the book out of my hand because it was not at all who I was expecting. We see a familiar face in this book and I couldn’t hide my excitement seeing this person again.

Elder is not about to let anyone stop him from being with Pim. But this story brings him to a whole new level of dedication. He’s had to learn to give up things that have meant everything to him in order to save Pim and give her the life that she deserves. I have loved Elder since the first book, even when he was definitely the bad guy with Pim. I loved reading the many, many layers of his life and as we get to know more about him and how he came to be the man that he is.

Pim really becomes in her own in this story and I really love where she ends up. There were times (especially in the last two books) where I would have a hard time getting behind the character of Pim and her relationship with Elder, but this book completely turned my opinion around. Pepper Winters is not only able to get me to love the character of Pim but make her become a phoenix in my eyes, rising from the ashes of the stuff that she has to live through in that first book.

Pepper Winters really knows how to write a dark romance novel and is not afraid to not just dip her toe in the ugliness of the world, but jump right in. She shows that love can be found even in the darkest of places and that sometimes you have to sacrifice who you are now in order to find that kind of love.

Damien learns who the real monster is in ‘El Santo’ by M. Robinson

EL SANTO IS LIVE & FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED!
FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON
COVER MODEL ENRICO RAVENNA
COVER DESIGN: THE FINAL WRAP
I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I killed. 

I tortured. 
I loved… 


I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options. 


If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.

If you weren’t with me, you were against me.

Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.

Not for me.

For them.

For anyone.

Only for her…

She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.

A fucking monster.

Until it was too late. 

Except, I didn’t choose this life. 
It. Chose. Me.



*STANDALONE CONTEMPORARY/NEW ADULT ROMANCE


Review

Damien is on the road to be a very powerful man in Columbia. He is working for Salazar learning the ropes and what it takes to be a man in that life and if he can make the decisions that it takes to be powerful.

He has everything that it takes but there is one decision that has been following him since he first broke into the world. He saves someone that he was supposed to kill and now has taken it upon himself to do whatever it takes to keep her alive. There is something about her that touches on his soft spot.

As the years pass, things change between Damien and Amira. She becomes obsessed with him and the way that he makes her feel. Yes she knows he’s a bit crazy but he stirs something inside of her that she can’t let go. Damien knows that this girl is going to be his downfall and in the book we see how it effects him and decisions he makes. He puts her before anyone else and while it threatens everything he’s building he just can’t let her go.

M Robinson writes a dark tale of love and how it can be found when you least expect it. The story is gritty, dark, and shows that there is a fine line between what you want and your duties.

FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED

I’m going to tell you a story.
It’s dark.
It’s brutal.
It’s fucking real.
In order to understand my present, who I am, and what I’ve
become…
You need to understand my past.
Evil doesn’t always hide in the shadows, in the darkness.
Most of the time, it’s out in the open, in plain fucking sight. Possessing the
man you’d least expect. You see, I never imagined another life until I made one
for myself. By that time, I was too far-gone, engulfed in nothing but pitch
black darkness. Exactly the way it was meant to be.
No one could touch me.
No one fucked with me.
I. Was. Invincible.
Nothing more…
Nothing less.
When I dreamed of true love—of soul mates, my other half, of
her—the cruelty of my life would snap me back into my reality, making it just
that, a dream. One that could easily turn into a nightmare.
My worst fucking nightmare.
Every memory, the good, the bad, the in between. All the I
love yous, every last I fucking hate you, her heart and soul that I’d broken,
shattered and destroyed along the years belonged to me.
Her pleasure.
Her pain.
It was all a part of me, carved so fucking deep into my skin
where she would forever be engraved. My story is going to make you fucking hate
me as much as she does, but I want you to.
I’m not looking for redemption.
I’m not looking for your forgiveness.
I don’t deserve yours like I don’t deserve hers.
I’m far from the hero in this story.
I’m closer to the villain.
You will think of me as the villain.
Except, I’m far worse.
I’m the fucking monster.
And, I’m perfectly alright with that.
I dare you to try to love me…
Like she did and probably still does.

Noah gets a second chance of love in ‘Wicked Torture’ by J Kenner

Outwardly, Noah Carter is riding high as the tech world’s hottest new genius. Inside, he’s still reeling from the abduction of his wife and baby daughter eight years ago, and then the devastating discovery of his child’s body. For years, he kept up hope that his wife was alive, but now that she’s been declared legally dead, he’s thrown himself even more deeply into his work, cutting himself off from emotional ties because they just hurt too damn much.

Then he meets Kiki Porter, an eternal optimist with a killer work ethic and dreams of fronting a band. And everything changes. Even though he tries his damnedest to fight it…

Sexually, they are combustible together. But their true fire is emotional, though it is a slow to burn. But once it lights, it is all consuming. The relationship grows emotionally, the sex is hot, things are good.

But just when it’s looking like they might have a real future together, the past comes back to haunt them. And Noah’s going to have to decide what he’s willing to give up for love …

Time to heal.

Somehow, though, he never found the enthusiasm. Or maybe that was just an excuse. Another way of punishing himself for walking away from the woman he loved in favor of the woman he’d owed.

And since he’d never have either of them again, he needed to kick his own ass, pick up the pieces of his life, and start building something real. After all, there wasn’t a tech gadget he couldn’t design, build, or repair. So why was he so clueless when it came to his own damn life?

It was time, and it would be easy. Painless even, because God knew Evie embodied everything he admired in a woman. Strength. Intelligence. Ambition. Humor. Beauty. She was as desirable as Lyle had promised and obviously enthusiastic.

In other words, he was all out of excuses.

He stood up, intending to tell her to lead the way. But the words that came out of his mouth shocked them both. “I’m sorry, Evie,” he said. “You’ve been wonderful, but I have an early meeting, and I should probably get home.”

“Oh.” He’d surprised her as she was rising, and now she teetered awkwardly on her heels, as if his unexpected words would physically topple her.

He reached out a hand to steady her, and for the briefest moment, he considered pulling her close and fighting his way past his hesitation. She was everything he should want in a woman—with the unfortunately insurmountable problem that she wasn’t what he wanted at all. Or, rather, she wasn’t who he wanted.

Goddamn him.

Goddamn his stupid, unrealistic fantasies.

And while he was at it, goddamn Kiki, too.

He was being an idiot and unfair, and he knew it. An idiot, because he’d made his choice to walk away from Kiki long ago, and he knew damn well that he’d shattered her in the process. Even if he could have seen his way clear to look her up after all these years, he’d forfeited his right to come crawling back.

Unfair, because not ten minutes ago he’d been ready to take the plunge with Evie, and yet here he was, dodging and shifting like a damn coward, trying to swim up out of the deep black ocean of loss and pain. A familiar pain that wrapped him like a blanket, so cloying it was almost comfortable. And he knew damn well that there was only one way to fight it—he needed to take the girl to her room and try to fuck the darkness out of him.

The way he’d done with countless other women.

The way that never worked like it should. That only dulled the sharp edges of his pain, but added no light to the darkness.

That wasn’t what he wanted. Not anymore. One of the reasons he’d moved to Austin was to heal, after all. To heal, and to break bad habits.

Still, it was tempting, and it took more strength than he expected to shake his head again and say very gently, “I really am sorry. I’m not … ready.” She’d been polite enough not to mention the tragedy in his past, but he was certain that Lyle must have at least told her that he’d lost his wife and daughter. Hopefully, that softened the blow of rejection.

She’d regained her footing, and now she stepped back, her forehead creased as her eyes flicked over him, expertly assessing him as she would a witness. “It’s been almost nine years, I’m told.” The sharp edge of her voice sliced his heart. So much for softening the blow. “If you don’t get ready soon, I can’t help but think you’re going to end up sad and alone.”

With a thin, sympathetic smile, she turned and walked away, leaving him to watch her go and wonder at her perceptiveness. Because she was right.

He was going to end up sad and alone.

Hell, he already was.

Known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been praised by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.

In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
