Jennifer’s Review: 

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

Kade has been in love with Sienna since forever, but with her being the Prez’s daughter she’s completely off limits. Too bad his head, heart, and body didn’t get the memo. He pines over her every time she’s around. He’s one determined man, and after he finally gets a taste, there’s nothing in the world that could deter him from getting the woman he loves.

“Let me love you.”

Sienna wants things she knows aren’t possible and therefore even if they’re right in front of her she’ll run the other direction in denial. Happily ever afters don’t happen in their lifestyle and to think they will is pure fantasy, which is something she won’t allow herself the luxury of. However, when she wants something done, she’s her father’s daughter and will take no prisoners.

“It was getting hot over there. I didn’t know something was going on with you two,” Aubs said, as soon as I slammed the door.

“There isn’t,” I spat.

“Yeah, okay, because that’s believable. You looked like you wanted to either kill him or rip his clothes off.”

Even when Kade is being an ass it comes from somewhere sweet. Sienna is the exact opposite. She’s mean and hateful sometimes and I just wanted to throw something at her. Pregnancy hormones be damned. But when their barriers both drop at the same time…they are left with sparks that rage toward inferno.

Bulletproof is book two in the Righteous Outlaws MC series and although the main characters are different in each book the underlying MC issues continue through each one. They definitely have to be read in order. And oh boy am I looking forward to reading book three, Dice.

My Favorite Moment: I always love those moments that can make you laugh one second and them be intense the next. When Sienna takes Dice’s advice and goes to Kade for a little relief it’s a mixture of humor and hotness.

Review of The Accidental Boyfriend by Maggie Dallen

The Accidental Boyfriend

Mr. Right vs Mr. Holy-Hotness

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 156 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

What do you do when Mr. Right seems oh-so-wrong?

Holly Sinclair is ready to have it all. She’s even found her Mr. Right–a steady, reliable guy who just needs a little convincing. Now all the former wild child has to do is free herself of her very inconvenient attraction to Jack Everett. Not only does the notorious playboy and tabloid king seduce her at her sister’s wedding, he follows her to Paris! Suddenly, Holly is alone with Jack in the most romantic city in the world–and his family is leaping to the wrong conclusions…

The world’s most infamous bachelor has finally met his match. If Jack was the type to settle down, Holly would be the woman of his dreams. There’s just one hitch: Holly actually believes she wants to marry Mr. Oh-So-Boring. Intent on proving that she deserves someone better, Jack finds himself playing the role of the perfect boyfriend…a little too well. If he’s not careful, he might just lose this game–and his heart.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from Kensington Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Holly is fun and caring, but she definitely has something wrong with her head because the scenario she’s mapped out as her wannabe life is just plain insane. I mean it’s like she’s trying to put the square peg in the round hole. She may want the two point five kids and the white picket fence, but sometimes things happen on their own and cannot be forced no matter how hard you try.

Jack is something else. It’s almost like he’s addicted to Holly, but doesn’t want to admit it…not even to himself. He’s the first one to offer to help her, he’s always right there when she needs him, and he’ll make the ultimate sacrifice for her in order to give her exactly what she wants.

“You should be with someone who thinks you’re amazing just the way you are. You should be with me.”

The Accidental Boyfriend is book two and I honestly think that although it can be read as a standalone that you read book one, The Accidental Engagement, first. I personally did not read it first and although I could put the pieces together there’s a lot of references to what happened in the book one that left me wishing I’d read it.

There are some funny situations Jack and Holly find themselves in for the pure and simple fact that they both act first and think later. The interactions Holly has with Mr. Right are awkward and make me dislike her a little more with each one. But the ending moment when everything comes together is both thoughtful and perfect.

My Favorite Awkward Moment: When Holly repays a favor by coming to Jack’s rescue, although her rescue attempt turns into a lot more than she bargained for.

Review of Storm (Bad Boys of X-Ops #3) by Rie Warren

Storm

Dangerous and Hot!

 

Genre: MC Romance, Erotica

Book Length (Est.): 295 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Danger.
Lust.
Desire . . . Trust?

STORM
I’m headed back to the Blood Legion MC in New Orleans, my old stomping grounds. Guns. Thugs. Broads. Cocaine nightmares. A Mexican cartel, cracker coke runners, and now there’s a new international threat in town.

Blaize Carmichael is my only partner in this op. Blaize. As a biker babe. Jeeesus. I’ve had a bone for her from day one when she walked into headquarters—haughty, superior, and always in charge.

There’s a goddamn good chance we’ll get made, played, and put in the grave as government-issue traitors. But I can’t help it—I love to get rough, raw, dirty, and dominant with her.

No more yes ma’am, no ma’am. Blaize is about to find out I don’t always takes orders as issued.

BLAIZE
I can’t stand the way Storm calls me woman or cher or sexy. As soon as we’re back in DC, I’m going to wipe that infuriating wicked smirk right off his dangerously handsome face.

I’m always prepared for every scenario. I’ve built my career on complete professionalism in and out of the field. But when Storm comes at me with wild animal lust—when he opens up to me—when he opens me up, I can’t say no.

I don’t want to.

We’re in danger every single day we stay in NOLA. There is no way we can make it out alive. Not together. Not this time.

Jennifer’s Review: 

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

Want another book boyfriend? It’s Storm!

Storm’s infatuation with Blaize has been teased on in the last two books and I couldn’t wait to see what happened between the two of them when they were undercover together. Let me just say…DAYYYYUUUUM! Nothing like a little role reversal topped in leather.

Storm is one intense and slightly insane man. He knows what he wants/needs and he knows what he has to do and go through to get it. He’s sweet and loving one moment and hell on wheels the next.

“I could wear a paper sack and you’d get hard.”

Blaize has her secrets, but she isn’t only the militant style leader Storm’s used to. There’s a lot more with her than meets the eye. And Storm wants to know all of it…all of her…inside and out. It was nice to see she had the heart of a woman beneath all her attitude and orders.

They’ll have to not only fit into the MC they’ll also have to survive it. And what a wild and crazy ride it is!

Storm is another fantastic book in the library of Rie Warren! She knows how to write those bad boys in a way that has us begging for more. Bring on Bane…I can’t wait!

My Favorite Moments: I loved the intense chemistry between Storm and Blaize all throughout the book.

“Blaize. I am real close to hiking up your skirt and ripping off your panties –“

“Who says I’m wearing any?”

“Wrong fucking answer.”

Excerpt:

I placed Blaize down in the bed, gently. Dropping my clothes to the floor, I crawled in beside her and leaned up on my elbow.

“There’s just one thing I want from you, Blaize. Not pity. Not worry. Not as my boss. And no ass kicking either.”

“What?”

“Kiss me for real.”

“Is that a directive?” Her arms wound around my shoulders, guiding me down to her.

“As direct as I get.”

A low groan rolled from my chest as soon as our lips met. The heat of her mouth, the touch of her tongue, the light tease of her hands up and down my back was summer soft, and highly addictive.

The slant of her head was perfect and when she drove her fingers into the muscles of my ass, a louder longer groan rushed out of me and into her mouth. My chest filled, pumping like bellows, and I wanted to crash all the way against her, mate her, make her completely mine.

With a soft graze of her teeth against my bottom lip, she pulled just slightly back.

“Blaize.” I skimmed my hands from her waist to her hips to her thighs, nudging my mouth against hers. “Fuck, Blaize.”

She drew her hands up my arms, over my shoulders, locked them behind my neck. “I thought you needed something sweet.”

“That was more than sweet.” Sweet torture.

I rolled her to her side, asking for nothing more than her warmth.

I’d already gotten her kiss.

I could be patient enough to wait for the rest. All of her.

“Remember that the next time you want to curse the boss lady, sugar.

“Sugar?” My belly rumbled with a laugh. “You learning the lingo?”

She sighed with a little sniffle that meant she was ready to head to la-la land.

I whispered against her neck, “You know you really fall asleep too easily with me.”

“’M’still awake,” she slurred.

Uh huh.

She drifted off just like that.

And half an hour later, I still needed to get off.

This room was gonna smell like hot sex by the morning one way or the other.

Getting up without disturbing her, I cracked the balcony door, poured a drink, and spat into my palm.

Sitting in the chair, I spread my thighs, hefted my meaty balls in one hand, and drank the whisky.

My cock rose up to my stomach, a huge thick rod incapable of going soft with an almost naked Blaize in my bed. I took another drink, letting the scotch roll around my mouth as my fist closed over the base of my cock and cruised up to the purplish head of my dick. I squeezed, and a drop of pre-come rolled out. Clear and slippery, the fluid ran down my veiny length and pooled against my sac.

Blaize shifted in the bed, her arms outstretched, blindly searching for me. With an operative’s instincts that something was different, her head snapped up and she was immediately awake.

Her eyes darted to me, spread out and naked before her.

“Didn’t wake you, did I?” I tugged my cock, making it even harder, hotter, pulsing.

“Fuck. Storm.” She sat up, and as the sheet drifted to her waist I could easily make out the sexy way her nipples tightened.

My pelvis rocked up.

I stared at her. “C’mere.”

Blog Tour – Review of Crave (Exiled #2) by Victoria Danann

Crave

Powerful and Moving

 

Genre:  Paranormal Romance, Sci-fi

Book Length (Est.): 13 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Crave surpassed the limits of mortal endurance and survived years of torture by the Rautt. For years he’d been isolated, chained in darkness, kept in filth, starved, taken to the point of death only to be restored so that his enemies could begin the cycle again. His family thought he was dead, but the woman who’d held his heart and his promise never gave up hope.

After his rescue, his memory and sanity gone, Dandy will plumb the depths of love to bring him back from hell, while his community sets out to prove that he’ll never be alone again.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from Book Enthusiast Promotions in exchange for an honest review*

The last thing Carnal did before his death was see Crave free. It was the gut-wrenching ending to book one that leads straight into book two. Crave had been held and tortured by the Rautt for years and when his people got him back he wasn’t the same man he was before. All that darkness had clouded his mind and pushed him to the brink of madness. But Dandy never gave up hope…not once. Not until one day she realized it was time for her to move on with her life like Crave seemed to be doing with his.

The mind is funny thing though, sometimes one little word can turn things around. And sometimes it takes an act of determination and love to set things right. Nothing comes easy to the Exiled, but they sure know how to come together to take care of their own.

“He’s got this insane idea that he no longer deserves you. He’s got it in his head that he needs to prove to you that he’d die for you.”

The depths of emotions in this book are endless. Crave is powerful and moving. I laughed and cried and couldn’t have put it down if I’d tried.

This is the second book in the Exiled series and it was just as good as, if not better than, Carnal. Victoria Danann’s writing has a way of moving your soul. The characters easily win you over and it’s not long before you’re feeling what they feel and wanting what they want.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: There are so many moving moments in this book, but I don’t want to give anything good away so I’m going with something a little lighter…may favorite laughable moment happens when Crave and Dandy are discussing a little gift from Flora.

Excerpt:

Eight years earlier.

Dandy and Crave had taken the hike up the western mountain to the waterfall pool. Everyone knew where it was, but few people went because the effort to get there was worth mention.

The pool was small, only fifteen feet across, but the water was beautiful and clear. It was also cold since it began its journey higher up as snow melt. Crave thought it was the prettiest spot in the world, surrounded by pink granite outcroppings, aspens and evergreen trees.

They’d removed their clothes and jumped in, Dandy shrieking about the cold while he pretended to be immune and laughed at her. They swam and splashed, but after a time ended up kissing and exploring each other’s postpubescent bodies.

In many ways Dandy thought those first shy touches were the most erotic things that would ever happen to her. It was then and there that Crave had also declared.

“I love you, Dandy. You’re my promise.”

She laughed. “You can’t just say I’m your promise, Crave. You have to ask me. Don’t you know that?”

He looked a little hurt, but started again. “Dandelion. I love you. Are you going to be my promise or not?”

“I will.” She smiled showing off her white teeth. Then she grew serious as a thundercloud. “But I’d better never catch you with another female.”

Crave was offended at the suggestion. Even in his fantasies, the only female he could imagine mounting was Dandelion. “I wouldn’t do that.” Understanding flitted across his boyish features as he considered the implications and his expression changed to a look of worry. “Same for you.Right? No other males.”

Dandy smiled a perfectly coy female smile and drew closer. “I would never, Crave,” she breathed. “You’re my promise.”

His forehead smoothed as he relaxed then promptly dunked her under with a mischievous grin.

Book Length (Est.): 153 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Dylan Zane has everything he wants. He’s co-owner of a lucrative business, rich, good-looking, and has willing women available any time he wants them. He’s never felt like he’s been missing out on anything. Until he met her…

Riley Daniels knows she shouldn’t be attracted to Dylan Zane. He insults her, makes her second-guess herself, and they argue more than they get along. But there’s times she sees another side of him and she knows there’s more to him…

They both have a past they’d rather keep hidden. But secrets have a way of coming out. Especially when you don’t want anyone to know about them.

Find out in the second installment of the Zane Series: Book Two. **All books in this series are stand-alone novels and can be read without reading the other books in the series. No cliffhangers.**

**Due to mature content, language, and sexual scenes this book is for mature readers only.**

Mindy’s Review: 

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

Dylan Zane is the oldest of the Zane siblings. He feels a great deal of remorse when it comes to their childhood. He feels as if he could have done more. Now that he is older and is a co-owner of the business he does not really feel like he is missing out on anything in life. He is handsome and can have any woman he wants. One thing that he will not settle for is a committed relationship.

Riley Daniels is friends with the Zane siblings but gets an uneasy feeling every time she is near Dylan. He makes her second guess her job as a social worker. Mainly because she is the only one that knows the true story of their childhood. Riley has a difficult time reading Dylan but one thing she knows for sure is she is completely attracted to him.

This is the second book in the series. I have to say that I loved the first one and I loved this one just as much. This story gets a little bit more emotional as the details about their abuse comes to light to the public. Dylan and his siblings must deal with their past and make some decisions to help other people in need. While his relationship with Riley gets serious he denies the fact that he is falling in love. Once the relationship gets tested he will have to make a decision on his future, love her or walk away.

I am so excited to read the third book in the series Tease Me.

Review of Tame Me (Zane Series # 1) by J. L. Leslie

41gyVEZWs7L._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

Tame Me

Genre: Love & Romance

Book Length (Est.): 169 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Wren Davis has always been the responsible one. The caretaker. She’s always put her life on hold for others. When she takes a job as Stellan Zane’s housekeeper, she does it to take care of her sister. Her own life can wait. Only she wasn’t expecting to find him so irresistible…

Stellan Zane is used to getting what he wants, when he wants. No woman gets to him. No woman really knows about him or his past. When he lets his little sister hire him a housekeeper, Wren Davis is not what he was expecting. And she’s his employee. Yet, she’s what he wants…

Unable to fight their attraction, the two embark on a relationship that’s supposed to be uncomplicated. Allowing Wren to have the carefree life she’s never had and Stellan to enjoy the type of relationship he always gets. But when exes interfere, the unexpected happens and things become complicated, can Wren tame Stellan…and will he allow her to?

Mindy’s Review: 

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

Stellan Zane is used to getting everything he wants. Being a self-made millionaire with his siblings comes with extra perks.  He can have anyone that he wants when he wants them. As long as they go away when he is finished with them. Even though he has some crazy ex’s he tries not to let that get to him. When he decides to let his sister interview housekeepers for his two homes he never thought she would hire a gorgeous woman that he is very tempted to touch.

Wren Davis has bills to pay. She has been taking care of her sister since her mother died. She has just finished college but has not landed a job that can pay for everything that she needs. When she sees an ad for a housekeeper making more than enough money she is unable to resist and applies. When she gets the job on the spot she feels as there is more to this job then what meets the eye. Once she sees Mr. Zane for himself her body comes to life.

Wren knows that she should not have dirty thoughts about her boss. But when sparks start to fly between the two of them it is unstoppable. With neither of them trying to get their heart involved it becomes a battle. Stellan has no idea what these feelings are or what to do with them. All he knows is that Wren makes him very happy and he wants to see her more and more, and not just in the kitchen.

This was an awesome read. This book has scorching romance, a very crazy ex and some first time feelings for both of them. I cannot read to read the next book in the series about the other Zane brother Tempt Me.

Happy reading my friends.

Review of Fooling Around by Noelle Adams

Fooling Around

Keep the Tissues Handy

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 242 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

In this steamy novel from New York Times bestselling author Noelle Adams, a notorious tech mogul makes a mild-mannered woman an offer she can’t refuse. What he gets is a battle for control—and a million-dollar affair.

Eric Vincent isn’t in the habit of asking for help. As the founder of a lucrative sports videogame franchise, he’s accustomed to getting his way and enjoying the fruits of his hard-earned success. Then all his illusions of dominance are shattered by a skiing accident that leaves him hobbled, facing a string of surgeries and months of immobility. The only way he’s going to survive is with someone by his side to anticipate his every desire. Someone who will devote every waking second to his comfort. Someone like Julie Nelson . . .

Julie’s life revolves around other people: her students, her parents, her sister. But even she has her limits. Julie has zero interest in playing personal assistant to Eric Vincent, a man who’s as arrogant as he is charismatic . . . until he ups the salary to one million dollars for three months’ work. Soon Julie’s struggling to bite her tongue—and resist the chemistry that draws her to Eric. But after one scorching kiss, Julie decides it’s finally her turn to be selfish. And this time, she’s going to get what she wants.

Jennifer’s Review: 

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

Julie just lost her mother and wasn’t sure what her future held, but then she was made an offer that she couldn’t really refuse. Three months of dealing with someone she’d not particularly liked in exchange for one million dollars in salary….yep that would be hard to turn down.

Eric didn’t really pay any attention to Julie when they initially met, but the longer he was stuck with her the more he noticed the small things she did. After that he knew he had to have her around until he could get back on his own two feet.

There’s a lot of sadness in Fooling Around. It’s almost like every time there’s a glimpse of happiness in comes the sad to rain on the parade. Even the relationship between Eric and Julie was filled with uncertainties, misunderstands, and just plainly a roller coaster of ups and downs. There is a certain level of sweetness and there are a few hot steamy love scenes, but even they’re over shadowed by the general sadness of the story.

My Favorite Moment: There’s a little discussion that takes place about making someone’s eyes happy. It was sweet and kind of perfect.
