TugFront5.5X8.5~ Synopsis ~

Aidan Hunter lost the only girl he ever loved to his older brother. To numb his pain, he drinks in excess, parties too hard, and sleeps with countless women.

Add running from a dangerous past and working in the oldest profession, and all she has is hope for a better life. Hope one day she will no longer feel shame and hope her past never catches up with her.

After Aidan pays to spend one wild night with Maria, pretending to be unaffected by her is impossible. Their night comes to an explosive end and Maria hopes she never sees him again, but Aidan refuses to give up. As Maria begins to accept that Aidan’s feelings for her are genuine, someone from her past threatens her life. Aidan’s not intimidated and takes a huge risk to protect her.

4.5 Stars by Guest Reviewer Margaret

So if you've read Irreparably Broken and Irreversible Damage then you know who Aidan "Tug" Hunter is and you know his story... Been in love with Tori since he was a kid but unfortunately Tori's in love with his brother Brady. So this leads up to Tug's story...and I must say I loved this book! I definitely experienced every kind of emotion possible. 

The book starts out showing you how he's a man who's trying to forget about his past with Tori by sleeping with anyone that's willing. He's trying to hide the pain by doing everything in excess. He's the CEO and expected to act a certain way in the public eye so he does the only thing he knows how to do which is fake it. 

Maria Santiago has had a tough life making tough decisions as best she could. She's struggling to make ends meet as she has her son Javier and her grandpa Franco to worry about. She's hiding from her past and hoping it won't catch up to her. She's also working as a hooker/prostitute while going to school and planning a better life. 

Tug unexpectedly meets Maria and she doesn't really give him the time of day but he vows to make Maria his and will stop at nothing until it happens. Maria thinks her past will ruin what they may have together but Tug reassures her that he isn't going anywhere. They are obviously worlds apart coming from different backgrounds but the attraction between the two is unmistakable and definitely HOT! 

Just an FYI the book does end on a cliffhanger so be prepared. It is definitely one that will make you think what in the hell just happened? I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. And if you haven't read Irreparably Broken and Irreversible Damage I highly recommend them. KJ Bell hurry with the next book!

Blog Tour: Wicked Flames by Sharon Kay

~ Synopsis ~

Gin Bonham lives with a dark secret. Born with an ability she never wanted, she builds her life around science and logic, running from the terror she is capable of causing. When sexy stranger Mathias spots her on a dance floor and cuts in, he leads Gin in a sensual rhythm that continues long after the music stops. But Mathias hides the fact that he knows exactly what she can do: in the deepest recesses of her mind lurks the power to manipulate fire. Destiny is coming for her and it doesn’t care if she’s ready or not.

Mathias possesses tracking and espionage skills so extraordinary that his fellow Lash demons call him The Hunter. Pursue and interrogate. He never fails. When he is tasked with coaxing Gin to work with the Lash demons against a common enemy, he relishes the challenge. But meeting her awakens a new, primal drive that pulls him toward her even as his tactics break her heart.

Failing to win Gin’s cooperation is not an option. But she is determined to flee, putting thousands of miles between her and any other supernatural creatures, including Mathias. Can she cool the charred embers of her emotions enough to forgive Mathias and embrace what she was meant to become? Or will her ability explode into something more than she can control?

5 Wicked Stars

This book was amazing!  It was about Gin the third Solsti.  We get to learn more about her and why she thinks her power is a curse.  This book doesn't have as much action on Torth as the first two books do, but Mathias makes up for that.  Mathias is HOT!!

Gin doesn't want to be like her sisters.  She doesn't want her power.  She wants to move to remote areas and help people get water.  She wants nothing to do with the life her sisters live with demons, fairies and other mythical creatures.  Why can't life be easy?  Everything is going well until Mathias shows up.  She wants him and isn't focused on the strange things happening around her.  What will she do when she finds out who and what Mathias and Ria are?
Mathias is sent to get Gin to accept her powers and use them.  He was told to use any manner necessary.  He wasn't expecting to be attracted to her.  He can't take his eyes off her from the moment he sees her.  He knows she needs to know the truth, but if he tells her she will run.  What will he do?  Start the relationship as a lie?  Or will he end up chasing her because he scared her off?
This is am amazing third book and I cannot wait for the final book in the series!!  I need it now.  Before starting this book I thought I knew who the fourth Solsti was, but I was very wrong!! I did guess who it was a little over half way through the book though.  Way to keep me glued to my couch so I could read this book Sharon!!

~ Excerpt ~

The distinct buttery smell of pecan instantly hit his nose. Gin stirred the hot chocolate with cinnamon sticks, further intensifying the olfactory barrage.

“This smells way better than the Coffeehouse,” He walked up behind her, admiring the view of her perfect ass in that tight little dress. Her hair hung long and loose down her back, and he threaded his hands into it, wanting to touch every inch of her.

She sucked in a breath and turned to face him, eyes huge. Cradling one mug in her hands, she offered it to him. “Taste.” Her voice was a strained whisper, a question and an offer combined.

He toyed with the ends of her hair. “Not first on my tasting list, Ginger.”

Her pulse ticked frantically at the base of her throat, and her chest rose and fell with uneven breaths. “Not…first…?”

He took the mug from her and set it on the counter. “No.” Fuck, she was so gorgeous, standing here all dressed up for him. Dim light or sunlight, silk or jeans, she glowed with a fiery sensuality. He planned to explore every nuance of her heat, starting when he was buried inside her.

Holding her hair to the side, he kissed her shoulder. Her arms slid up his shoulders to clutch his biceps and a breathy moan escaped her.

Nipping, he moved to her collarbone. Her neck. Anywhere but her parted lips, where he knew she wanted him. He wanted her pliant, defenseless, and begging.

She gave a full-body shudder and tilted her head.

Pliant, defenseless, begging. He gripped her hips and traced circles with his thumbs. “Can you guess what’s at the top of that list?”

“Um…” She blinked, but couldn’t hide the hunger in her eyes. “List?” Her hands dropped to grip the edge of the counter behind her.

He brushed his lips across her ear. “We’re gonna play a game.”

Her eyebrows raised. “What kind?”

“A guessing game.”

“Hmm.” She bit her lip. “Like twenty questions?”

“Only two questions.”

“What am I guessing?”

“I have something of yours.” He swept his hands up and down in the air in front of him. “On me.”

Her mouth dropped. “What? When did you—? Where?” her eyes darted over his chest and arms, and down to his open hands.

“You get two guesses. For each wrong guess, I kiss you.”

She folded her arms, pushing her breasts up and giving him a cock-hardening view of her cleavage. “That doesn’t sound so bad. How do you know I won’t guess wrong on pur—”

“After two guesses, you have to find it. Without talking. And you have to keep your eyes closed until you do.”

Her eyes widened. “What if I don’t find it?”

“You get spanked.”

That First Kiss by J.C. Valentine

His finger stroked the inside of her thigh, seeking higher ground as his thoughts rolled forward. Piper’s eyes trained on his face, hanging on his every word. “I didn’t intend for things to get as heated as they did, but as soon as I touched you, I needed more. I couldn’t help myself. You possessed me.”
The glazed look in her eye told him that she was remembering that night as vividly as he was. Placing both hands on the cushions on either side of her body, he hemmed her in, bringing their faces so close that when he spoke, his lips grazed hers. “The way you danced that night, pushing that sweet little ass of yours against me. It’s haunted me, Piper,” he whispered.  “You need to understand, I tried to resist you, just like I have been trying to resist you, but you drive me crazy. When I’m with you, it takes everything in me to stay away. All I think about, all I dream about is burying myself inside you.”
Piper licked her lips and Tate zeroed in on the tiny movement. “I want to suck those plump lips into my mouth,” he murmured. Shifting, he brought his knee up so it rested on the couch alongside hers and hovered over her. Her face was flushed and her chest rose and fell heavily. She wasn’t unaffected.
“You need to leave,” she said weakly.
Tate chose that moment to drop his head into the crook of her neck, nuzzling her. She smelled faintly of roses, and his cock jumped at her soft, feminine scent. “Do you want me to leave?” he asked softly.
He could feel her softening beneath him, her breath coming out in shudders as he skimmed his lips lightly up her neck to her ear, where he licked the pulse beating rapidly beneath her sensitive skin. “Yes.”
The single word left her on a stilted breath, only solidifying his need to get inside her. “I don’t think you do,” he murmured. With sure hands, Tate grabbed the backs of her thighs and yanked her toward him, seating her firmly beneath him on her back with her legs spread wide.

His Wicked Games by Ember Casey

4.5 Stars

This is one I probably would have never found had I not received this set, which would have truly been a tragedy as it was a great read! Who doesn't love a hot billionaire bad boy?

Lily Frazer will do anything necessary to save Frazer Center for Arts. Including breaking into the estate of Calder Cunningham and express her grievances of him pulling funding from the center. What Lily doesn't expect is that it will turn into days of wickedly pleasurable games with a man that she thought she hated but finds her body likes him very much!

Calder Cunningham is a notoriously rich bad boy. When he cuts funding to The Arts center he ignores Lily's pleas for a meeting and in doing so catches her breaking into his estate. So begins the game of cat and mouse.

The relationship development between Calder and Lily is amazing! The games they play are awesome. There is intrigue and wonderment throughout. The game is on and the winner takes all.

Can Lily win the funding back for the Frazer Center?

I will definitely be reading further on in this series, it is wonderful!

Fierce by Clarissa Wild

This book was a fast, easy read.  It had me chuckling in places and just think really?  Same things were just unbelievable.

Autumn is excited to be starting college.  She finally gets to be with Brody, her best friend from home that is three years older. She also has her best friend Evie with her.  She is hoping to not be the laughing stock here like in high school.  She can't believe she caught the eye of the hottest guy on campus Hunter Bane!  He is hot and every time he approaches her she looks like an idiot.  She loses her breath and can't talk.  Will she be scared away?  Or will she throw all her inhibitions out the window?

Hunter Bane is only surviving for one reason and one reason alone.  He doesn't need the distraction of any girl.  He has to keep his focus on his goal.  Though he has a hard time keeping away from the shy, beautiful, innocent Autumn or Leafy as he likes to call her.  Will he complete what he needs to? Or does Autumn get in the way?

This book is definitely worth the read.  I just needed a little more and for some areas to be a little more believable!!

Can't Shake You by Molly McLain
4.5 Stars

Another installment in this great set of books! Yet another I would have never found without this set.

Carissa Brandt has one night of great passion with Josh Hudson then he is shipped off to Afghanistan. It was one night that she has been unable to put out of her mind. Three years and a relationship with his best friend have not put out the fire he started. The sexual tension between them can be cut with a knife.

Josh Hudson is a fine piece of Marine. Running his own construction company and fighting what he feels for Carissa because it breaks the guy code. Now Carissa needs his help renovating a house and working with her day after day is giving him a series case of blue balls! Plus someone is out to destroy his company and reputation.

Friends with benefits seems to be the way to go. Surely the tension between these two will burn itself out. They just have to sex their way out of it!

Great read. There is suspense, drama and lots of hotness!

Sorority Pledge 1-6 by Daizie Draper
4 Stars

This one took me out of my comfort box and opened my mind. Though I personally would never do what Addison does I found myself trying to see through her eyes as to what the attraction would be to her particular lifestyle. Though I would never partake in this way of life reading it still left me somewhat hot and bothered. So job well done!

Addison Montgomery has an itch that she just can not seem to scratch. Vanilla men are just not doing it for her. Accepting that she may be a little on the freaky side just is not an option. Until she crosses paths with Logan Thorndike and recieves a spanking that she will never forget and it opens up a whole world of kink!

Logan Thorndike has a penchant for domination. He is just unsure if it is a world he want to dive into. One girl brings his dom tendencies to the surface. Spanking Addison thrills him in ways he just can not describe.

This is an enjoyable ride into the world of Dom and sub. It was very interesting to see Addison and Logan travel down this path. This is a great series of quick, hot reads.

~ 20 Fun Facts ~
  1. Olivia Rigal sings every Wednesday night in the karaoke club
  2. Olivia Rigal went to dog grooming school
  3. Lacey Silks had a passion for acting when she was a teen. As an extra she met Marlon Brando, Matthew Broderick, Ricky Lake, Brendan Fraser, Jerry O’Connell and Shirly MacLain
  4. Lacey Silks is afraid of flying. If you ever sit beside her on a plane, don’t mind the Hail Mary’s. And good luck getting to the bathroom. She will not unbuckle her seat belt through the entire flight
  5. Before she was an author, Ember casey worked as a pastry chef. She's never met a cake (or puff pastry, or tart, or chocolate truffle) she didn't love
  6. Ember Casey started writing Romance because her critique group kept telling her that her attempts at Young Adult were too, uh, "adult"
  7. J.C. Valentine is a reality TV junkie. The Kardashians hold her prisoner often and without mercy
  8. J.C. Valentine loves thunderstorms. They’re perfect for writing
  9. Clarissa Wild always drinks tea when writing, and she needs at least 2 cups of earl grey tea a day
  10. Like the main character in her book Fierce, Clarissa Wild is actually quite a book-nerd, and not just that … she loves playing videogames as well
  11. Sky Corgan actually participates in the BDSM lifestyle as a dominant
  12. Sky Corgan has to have complete silence while writing, so no coffee shop writing
  13. V.J. Chambers still watches The Vampire Diaries, and she’s still on Team Damon
  14. V.J. Chambers has a cat called Isis, and she does not like to relinquish the keyboard for her to actually write. She would rather lie on it
  15. Blair Babylon has lived in 5 US states: Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, New Jersey and New York
  16. Blair Babylon was a child actor and model who did over 30 TV commercials and a short-lived PBS series
  17. During her tween years, Molly McLain began writing while listening to Wednesday night dedications and requests on radio. Since no one ever dedicated a romantic song to her, she made up her own love stories instead. To this day, all it takes to get the creative juices flowing is a little REO Speedwagon
  18. Molly McLain is a closet WWE fan. She may or may not fangirl over Randy Orton to the point her children refer to him as her boyfriend. They’re also kind enough to pause the TV when he’s on so she can drool
  19. Although Daizie Draper’s pretty kinky, she’s more of a switch than a straight-up sub. The BDSM in Sorority Pledge veers into many untested areas for her because Addison, the sub in the story, learns she's masochistic, which I Daizie is not
  20. One of Daizie’s quirky things is that she hates crumbs, like stepping on them with her bare feet. It just irks her like nothing else

Cover Reveal: Indiscretion: Volume One by Elisabeth Grace

~ Synopsis ~

F*ck and chuck. Pump and dump. Hit it and quit it. One night stand. Didn’t matter how I branded it—that’s all she had wanted it to be. That much was clear when she left me with my pants down and my dick still out.
What she hadn’t counted on was fate intervening and our worlds colliding—again.
The day I showed back up in the life of Chloe Griffins, I knew I had to have her again. My body was hungry for another taste. Like an addict, I’d been craving another hit for months, and there she was—flesh and bone, tits and ass.
The fact that she worked for the competition should’ve been reason enough for me to leave her alone. I had a job to do that summer and f*cking Chloe wasn’t part of it. But I was like a man possessed.
I’d do whatever it took to have her again.
