Review of Save My Soul (Kemmons Brothers Baseball #1) by Elley Arden

18761414[1]

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 189 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Psychotherapist Maggie Collins has always been a little off the proverbial wall, but now she’s also knee deep in a delayed quarter-life crisis. With her meager paychecks devoured by student loan debt, a car payment, and rent for office space, living at home with a flighty, folk-singing mother seemed like a good idea . . . at first. Now Maggie’s not so sure. She wants space to sort things out and launch a life of her own, but she needs a cushion of cash to get there. When an unexpected phone call brings an offer Maggie can’t refuse, she’s one deal with the devil away from moving out of her mother’s house.

The devil of contract negotiations, baseball agent Jordon Kemmons, has a problem the usual experts can’t fix . . . his star pitcher is too depressed to throw strikes. Even worse, Jordon’s post-divorce grudge against women is turning him into a raging mess. If desperate times call for desperate measures, then cynical Jordon has made the most desperate move of all. He’s hoping sexy psychotherapist Maggie Collins is the answer to all his rusty prayers.

Soon Maggie and Jordon are fighting an attraction that threatens everything they’ve ever believed. If it’s not just physical attraction . . . if it’s something more, maybe two wrongs can make a right.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review*

Maggie is quite the unique person. On the surface she seems kinds of flakey, but she’s sweet and caring and she knows how to love like no one else…even if she doesn’t realize it. Jordon, on the other hand, is like her polar opposite. He’s intimidating and sometimes cold, but she’ll call him on it every time.

When Jordan offers Maggie just the job she needs to get out of her financial problems and away from her wishy-washy mom she takes it, but her first day there has her wishing she hadn’t. Jordan drives her insane, which says a lot considering her profession, but she’s there to help Carlos, and she’ll put his well-being above her own discomfort.

Jordan has a secret. He’s wanted Maggie since the first time he saw her. She’s his balance and he has never felt for anyone the way he feels for her. Now all he has to do is convince her of that.

Save My Soul had me hooked from the first page. The first chapter had me laughing hysterically and I couldn’t put it down until I hit the last page. The emotional ride is bumpy, but the passion between them is intense.

My Favorite Laughable Moments: The first conversation between Maggie and Jordon and the…spider. OMG! The way they spoke to each other and the way the spider kept interrupting had me laughing so hard I was in tears.

Between that and the conversation that took place in the grocery story – poor toothpaste woman – I was dying. Literally, tears were rolling down my cheeks. 

My Favorite Moment: The pier. The moment thoughts get pushed aside and actions take over.

Review of Desired (Club Sin #3) by Stacey Kennedy

19156685[1]

Genre: Contemporary Romance, BDSM

Book Length (Est.): 269 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

Kyler Morgan, Master at the legendary Club Sin in Las Vegas, knows how to give women what they want—too well. He hasn’t had a real challenge in a long time. Then Ella Snow enters his life. Beautiful, inhibited, and innocent in the ways of submission and domination, Ella is the new blood he’s been lusting after. Soon, the thrill of training her to embrace his world brings forth desires Kyler cannot control.

After ending an abusive relationship, Ella makes a promise to herself to start living life to the fullest. It’s one of the reasons she seeks out Club Sin. Here, Kyler’s every touch is a lesson in liberation, stirring passions that have no bounds. But as she falls under Kyler’s command, Ella discovers that some secrets are so dark they must come to light. Submission alone may not be enough to save her, leaving her Master with only one question: How can he help Ella heal while unlocking the deep pleasures she craves?

Desired is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Being a cop and a Master at Club Sin Kyler Morgan is in control of everything in his life. The only thing he is lacking is a woman to challenge him and share his life with. At his friend’s wedding he spots Ella for the first time. Unable to keep his eyes off of her he catches the attention of the groom. Aiden introduces Ella as his assistant with no family and who has been through a lot in her past.

Ella Snow is coming out of an abusive relationship and has made her way to Las Vegas to start her life over. She is living life to the fullest, trying new things, trying to say yes instead of no, all while trying not to be discovered by her abusive husband.

Kyler discovers early on that Ella is vanilla in her sex life but also happens to be a born submissive. He being a Dom tries to hold back as much as he can to not scare Ella and help her heal from her past.

When Ella’s past finds her Kyler has a very hard time controlling himself as he is already falling in love and feels every need to protect her physically, heart and soul.

This was a great hot steamy read. I was addicted from the first chapter. This is the third installment in the Club Sin series and I really want to go back and read the first two, and I probably will. This is one of those series where you will never be able to get enough. The writing is great and the story line is awesome. Let’s just say there is no way you could walk away from Club Sin without wanting to read more.

My Favorite Moments: My all time favorite moment was when the submissive had a girl’s night and Ella explained that she really needed the girls’ help with getting her ass spanked by Kyler in the dungeon. 

My Favorite Sincere Moment: I really enjoyed reading Ella opening up to Kyler about her past and her feelings.

Release Day Blitz: Uninhibited (The Callahans #2) by Melody Grace

20922819[1]

Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult

Book Length (Est.): 277 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

He’ll teach her a pleasure beyond her wildest dreams…

Alicia Wright isn’t the kind of girl to make out with a stranger in a dark alley. She’s spent years playing it safe, pining after the perfect man – who’s about to marry someone else. She doesn’t know how to move on, until a sexy stranger turns her world upside down with a wickedly tempting proposition…

She’ll rescue him from the edge of oblivion…

Rock star Dex Callahan swore his days of fame and debauchery were behind him, but the spotlight keeps calling his name. Determined not to fall into his old life, he goes looking for distraction — and finds an intoxicating red-head with a mouth made for sin. One kiss could never be enough, so Dex offers her a deal: spend one week with him, and she’ll forget her old flame ever existed.

Together, they’ll ignite a passion that will change them forever…

No rules. No limits. As the whirlwind week of pleasure unfolds, Alicia discovers a desire she never knew existed – and the tortured heart Dex hides behind his charming smile. But can old loves so easily be replaced? And when the week is over, will their bond be strong enough to weather the storm?

*This book contains adult situations and explicit content. 17+*

UNINHIBITED is part of the Beachwood Bay series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from Mark My Words Book Publicity in exchange for an honest review*

Even though the feelings aren’t mutual Alicia believes her heart belongs to another. So why is that ever since the night she met Dex in that alleyway can she not stop thinking about him? His touch. His kiss. He now rules her daydreams and every fantasy. But Alicia is a thinker, and she thinks entirely too much for her own good. All she needs to go for what her body is telling her she needs is one little push and once she gets it she’ll fall off the edge.

“Everything is right here, in his arms. This is me, all of me. And I want him with everything I am.” 

Dex is afraid of himself. Afraid of his demons. But when he was in Alicia’s embrace it all disappeared. For that one simple reason he couldn’t risk letting her walk away, though that’s exactly what he let happen. When she reaches back out to him he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.

“You drove me half-crazy, leaving me alone that night. I swore, if I got you back here, I’d make you never want to walk away again.” 

Dex and Alicia are hot together in Uninhibited. Their romance sizzles across the pages keeping you glued to the story and their heartaches keep your emotions on edge, waiting for the moment when they can fall over.

My Favorite Quote: “Something tells me you could get me out of a corset in five seconds flat if you put your mind to it.” 

My Favorite Moment: The ending! Love, love, loved it!

Review of Unrequited (The Callahans #1) by Melody Grace

22018783[1]

Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult

Book Length (Est.): 100 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

You can be anyone for a night…

Alicia isn’t the kind of girl to kiss a total stranger up against the wall — no matter how devastatingly sexy he is. But reeling from a broken heart, she runs straight into the arms of Dex Callahan: rock star, bad boy, and the most seductive man she’s ever known.

Dex is looking for distraction, at any price. The innocent redhead is just what he needs to keep his demons at bay — but one taste of her sweetness isn’t enough. He needs to possess her, body and soul.

Two searching hearts. One night to discover the passion of a lifetime. Dex is determined to show Alicia the pleasure she’s been denied, but can she let go of her heartache and take a risk on the unknown? Find out in the sizzling new novella from USA Today bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I got this book free from Amazon at the direction of the author who requested an honest review*

Unrequited is a sizzling novella that introduces Dex and Alicia. You don’t have to read it before reading their full length story in Uninhibited, but I’d definitely recommend it. It gives you a behind the scenes look of the first time they met. You wanna know the down and dirty details, and believe me you definitely do, then don’t skip this book.

Dex is nervous. Alicia is upset. But neither can resist the other when their paths collide in a heated alley inferno. Sometimes you just need someone to take the pain away…and that’s exactly what they do for each other.

“Dear Lord. I’ve never been kissed like this, not even close. His mouth is branding me, consuming mine.” 

Things heat up, but then fall cold, leaving Alicia time to begin thinking with her head again and Dex to chase after what he wants. With her in his hands and a proposition upon his lips what will happen next? I’m onto Uninhibited to find out.

My Favorite Moment: The story was entirely too short to pick just one – I loved it all – but I was drawn into the moment when Dex confronted Alicia outside his building. 

“One week. No rules, no limits, just us. I can save you from this unrequited love of yours. And you… You can save me from myself.”

Review of Dark Love by TL Clark

21322211[1]

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica

Book Length (Est.): 165 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

This book delves into the dark realm of Mistress Eigengrau, and the love that exists between this female Dom and her male Sub. This is not a book for the faint-hearted or under-18s as it contains graphic sexually explicit scenes, so strap on tight for a rough ride!

Jonathan (our gorgeous hero of a Submissive) has his attention diverted by another but it leaves him conflicted and confused. Can he turn away from the only kind of love he has ever known to explore new avenues? Or is it just a passing fancy; a light shone on a new world that ultimately has no longevity? Jonathan’s life is certainly about to get a lot more challenging.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

I am not too sure where to start. This is the first book I have read where a woman is a Dom and the Sub is a male. But here we go…

Jonathan comes from an abusive childhood and he thinks he does not deserve to be happy in life.

Melanie Dunn is a very successful business woman by day. Hiring Jonathan becomes the start of their relationship. She takes care of him and introduces him to the submissive lifestyle.

Mistress Eigengrau is a very strict Dom in the comfort of her own home and Jonathan will do anything to make the one woman who he trusts very happy, including cleaning in costume, fulfilling any desire, and being a very good puppy.

Lucy works at the office with Jonathan and they have a strong attraction to each other. He knows that having Lucy as a friend will make his Dom very unhappy, but he just cannot stay away from her. Lucy is very vanilla in the bedroom and has no idea what a relationship with him will consist of.

“Well, if you’re going to get flogged to within an inch of your life it might as well be for something worthwhile, and he was never going to have this moment again.” 

The author does warn you before reading. This book is definitely not for the readers who do not enjoy erotica or reading about the Dom and Sub lifestyle. There were plenty of times where I was completely shocked! However, this is a good story line. The advice I would give is to have the POV changes in their own chapters as they are very long chapters and could stand to be broken up.

My Favorite Moment: My favorite moment was when Lucy told her boyfriend off. You have to read the book to really get the “You Go Girl” feeling.

Review of Awaken (The Soulkeepers #2) by Lori Adams

20890093[1]

Genre: Paranormal Romance, New Adult

Book Length (Est.): 299 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

The thrills continue in Lori Adams’s addictive New Adult series of paranormal romance—the Soulkeepers—featuring the hottest love triangle in this life . . . or the next.

Sophia St. James has every reason to be happy: she survived the kiss of death from the seductive Demon Knight Dante and is free to be with Michael, her sexy Guardian Angel. She eagerly begins her Awakening to become a Spirit Walker and help lost souls cross over. But her training is fraught with setbacks, and Michael begs her to stop. The life of a Spirit Walker is far too dangerous, and he won’t be able to protect her.

Then Dante returns, threatening to drag Sophia to Hell so they can finally be together. Terrified of losing everything she has worked for, Sophia turns the tables on Dante, luring him into a deception that may get them both killed. The stakes climb even higher when Dante’s ally, Wolfgang, emerges from Hell with one order: kill Sophia. Will Michael once again be Sophia’s saving grace or will the Awakening give her the power she needs to save herself?

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Awaken puts an interesting spin on angels, demons, and love triangles. To be honest I’m still not entirely sure who I love more, Michael or Dante.

Michael is an angel who shares a heart link with Sofia and I just want to love him, but sometimes he is so incredibly frustrating. He says he love Sofia, but he doesn’t always prove that fact…sometimes he does the exact opposite. Three little pulls is all it takes to let her know how he feels about her, and sometimes he can’t even manage that. But then there are times he’s beyond sweet and romantic. I wonder which is the real him.

Dante on the other hand is completely sure of himself. He knows he loves Sofia above and beyond anything and he’ll do anything to prove that once upon a time she loved him back. But he’s a demon who wants to bring her to Hell with him. He’s protective and sexy, but Hell…not too sure how strong a bond would have to be to follow someone there voluntarily. But dang, what that man endures to get back to his love. How could anyone not love him for that? I know I’m having a difficult time not.

Sofia is chained to the car of an emotional, spiritual, and physical rollercoaster. Things are changing between her and Michael and they’re not entirely good, and with Dante back in town there’s only so much she can handle. Unable to shut off her emotions her ability to concentrate on anything is tested, and she fails miserably. They also control her physical capabilities, leaving her feeling like a failure. Torn and confused she conspires to a new plan. Although I think her witchy decision will cause more harm than she anticipated.

There’s a town member, possibly even a friend of Sofia’s, who has a secret, one that betrays her, but who oh who is it…? And what in the world happened to Ka at the dance that put Sofia in such turmoil? These questions and more have me impatiently waiting for book three, Unforgiven, the third and final book in the Soulkeepers Series.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: I loved Dante’s taste in travel music. Perfection!

My Favorite Couple: Vaughn and Bailey! I would love to read a short novella about just them and what they were doing throughout this series. 

My Favorite Moment: The carriage ride to the waterfall. It was such a gorgeous night…until it wasn’t.
