Mindy’s Review: 

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

Jared Redmond is a very busy man. Now that he is trusted with high dollar real estate transactions he does not have time for a personal life. When he comes home early one weekend and his brother is having a party at the house he just wants to go to bed. When he gets to his room he finds a woman sleeping in his bed and all he can think to himself is she looks like a princess. Being the gentleman he is he lets her sleep and falls asleep next to her.

Felicity Hart has one goal in life. Complete her masters in art. When she goes to a Halloween party and falls asleep in an unoccupied room she wakes to find the most beautiful eyes staring back at her.

Spending time together has the possibility of falling in love a reality. Both have very demanding schedules and their time together gets shorter and shorter. But when the heart loves someone anything is possible.

I enjoyed this book. I felt like Felicity should of had more confidence in herself. She is one of those girls that doesn’t know how pretty she is and does not feel like she deserves the knight and shining armor of a beautiful man. Overall the story is good and you really fall in love with the characters.

Review of 120 Days (Morgan Family Series #4) by J.L. Leslie

120-days

“I won’t stand outside the fire. I’ll dance in the motherfucking flames.”

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 145 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Bad things happen to good people every day. I hear this saying all the time. I’ve never really believed it. Not until I was one of the unlucky ones.

Now I have to be strong and live my life. Easier said than done. I have to figure out how to be normal again. How to be myself again. Only how do I do that when everything around me feels different? When my home is no longer my home? When my mind doesn’t think the way I want it to? When my body doesn’t even feel the same?

I try not to count the days that I can go without reliving my attack. One day…Three days…One hour…

I try to date. Be happy with a man. Only I seem to blame every man I meet. None of them understand what I’m going through. None of them understand me.

Except for one.

**120 Days (Morgan Family Series: Book Four) is a standalone, full-length novel. If you read 90 Days (Morgan Family Series: Book Three) then you had the pleasure of meeting Melanie and James. This is their story.

This book contains graphic material including rape, adult content, adult language, and sexual situations. It is meant for mature readers only.**

Mindy’s Review: 

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

Let me start by saying this is the fourth book in the Morgan Family Series. If you have not read the previous books, you need to before you start reading this one.

The next thing I need to say is thank you! Thank you J. L. Leslie for writing this one. I have been consumed by this series since I read the first one. I’m actually sad that it is over.

James is a therapist that deals with addiction. He helped Melanie’s brother when he was in rehab. Now that he is out James and Rhys are best friends.

Melanie is Rhys sister that was attacked and is dealing with her fear to be able to move on with her life. Sometimes to overcome your fear you have to have it come back full circle. Melanie likes James right away and feels really safe with him.  As their relationship grows the chemistry between them starts to grow more intense and dang is it hot!

I loved this book. I loved this entire series!

Review of Picture Me This by Marina Lovechild

picture-me-this

Ummmm….

 

Genre: Erotica, BDSM

Book Length (Est.): 141 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

“One snap with the shutter of my camera, and you will be mine forever,” he whispered.

My name is Sam, short for Samantha. I’m regular, boring and plain. The only time I can ever relax during my time in college is in photography class, or at least… It was.

That all changed when I met my new photography teacher. He is too sexy for his own good, and his mind too twisted for words to describe.
Together we tumbled into darkness, slowly spiraling out of control, and honestly…? I think I like it.

Mindy’s Review: 

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

Samantha is a college student. She is pretty plain and boring. The only time she feels relaxed is when she is smoking pot or in photography class. That is until she meets the new teacher.

Samantha tries to impress her teacher but can never seem to make him like anything that she does. That is until she starts taking pictures of herself.  She wants him to see the real her. However falling in love with him was not part of the plan.

This was a weird read for me. The teacher has a hidden past that he wants to keep hidden. Samantha wants to know all of his secrets no matter the cost. To be honest I kind of felt like I was reading a Lifetime movie script. With that being said I think it could be a really great movie.

Review of Dirty Like Us (Dirty #0.5) by Jaine Diamond

dirty-like-us

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 200 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

What happens in Vegas… better stay in Vegas.

Maggie Omura has never been a gambling woman. As assistant manager of Dirty, the hottest rock band on the planet, she brings order to the lives of four crazy-ass rock stars.

But when the band lands in Vegas, a streak of bad luck lands Maggie in a bind–and in the penthouse suite, with the last man she’d ever want for a roommate.

Zane Traynor, lead singer of Dirty. Rock god. Sex god. Total nightmare for women.

And the only man who’d make Maggie a proposal so insane it just might work.

A night of chance.
An irresistible gamble…
It’s time for Zane and Maggie to go all in.

 

YAY ~ Double Review!

Mindy’s Review: 

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

Maggie Omura is the assistant manager for Dirty. Dirty just so happens to be the hottest band in the world right now. Her only rule is to not get involved with the talent.

Zane Traynor is the lead singer for Dirty. He is a rock god and has a long list of one night stands to go along with it.

Maggie ends up trying to help someone and puts herself in a sticky situation. Sharing a suite with the rock god himself. He has wanted Maggie for so long and she knows it. She has been able to stand her ground for six years. However when she has a rough night and practically throws herself at Zane just to be shut down and humiliated she has no idea what to do.

Zane has had it bad for Maggie since he first laid eyes on her. Knowing she has a screwed up relationship with her dad makes Zane very angry.  Not to mention they just happen to be staying in her fathers hotel in Vegas. Everything with her father comes with a price. Zane has a better idea and pops the question to Maggie to get her father off her back. When Zane sets everything up he really goes all in.

OMG! I loved this short story. I really need the rest of it, and I mean I need it now.  I am just in awe with these two characters and I really need to know the rest of their story. I cannot wait!!

Jennifer’s Review: 

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

To Maggie, Zane is a rock god who sleeps his way through groupies. He’s also the man who causes her breathe to hitch and her body to shiver, which is why she’s kept things strictly professional over the years.

To Zane, Maggie is his girl, she just doesn’t know it. He’d do anything for her, including figuring out how to convince her to marry him. Too bad she thinks the entire thing is a sham and that he’s only doing it to help her get back at her father.

Dirty Like Us keeps you on the edge of your seat as you watch two people who are completely in love with each other fumble it up at every turn. Both too stubborn to admit their true feelings, and Zane is trying, but Maggie keeps thinking he’s not serious. The end…OMG the end! What a cliffhanger! My heart broke for Zane with his last ditch effort. Now I understand all their awkward tension filled moments in Dirty Like Me, but I really need for them to finish their story now.

“You’re fucking crazy.”

“I’m a fucking great friend. And I’d make a great husband.”

She laughed, hard, which cut me in a way I didn’t care to acknowledge. “And how’s that, do you imagine?”

“Let’s see. I’ve got a great cock, I’m giving as fuck in bed, I’m loyal to a fucking fault, and I’d kill for you.”

Blog Tour: Review of Hooked (Viking Bastards MC) by Christina Phillips

hooked

“Every girl deserves one bad boy in her past”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 162 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:

Zach…

I like my sex dirty and disposable. I’m not into commitment or chicks who want more than one night. My brothers and club come first, second and last.

Until she walks into my life. Classy, rich and so out of my league it’s crazy. A week together should get her out of my system, but this good girl is so bad when we’re all alone and I can’t get enough of her.

I don’t do forever, but she’s hooked me so bad I don’t ever want to let her go. Except there’s no way a princess can live in my world and I sure as hell won’t live in hers…

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Netgalley via Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review*

Zach is an absolutely no relationship kind of guy. He takes care of his sister and his club will always come first. When Grace walks into the bar to use the phone his thought process will change forever.

Grace is the kind of girl that comes from money and always tries to make her parents proud. Now that she has ended her engagement she is headed to her sister’s house. But not before her car breaks down in a shady part of town. With her head held high she walks right into a biker bar to use the phone and right into Zach’s arms.

This was a good romantic read. A hot headed guy that lives a crazy lifestyle falls for the girl that doesn’t fit into his life at all. With this being an MC book I expected to know more about the club. However, Zach and Grace are really good for each other. When he has to step into her lifestyle he knows that he could never fit into it but is not willing to let Grace go.

My Favorite Part: I think everything that had to do with Zach’s sister made me laugh. She has this brother that the world is scared of but she likes to tell it like it is.

Excerpt:

I pull her close, and she winds her arms around me, which makes me almost forget what I
was about to say. “What you see is what you get with me.”
“Hmm,” she says as though she doesn’t believe a word. “Big, bad, tough guy on the
outside. That’s okay, your secret’s safe with me.”
I snort with laughter. “No secret, Grace.” I like saying her name. “That’s me, inside and
out.”
“If you say so.”
“When I get you home, I’ll prove it to you.”
“Do you live far from here?”
With my arm still wrapped around her, I once again make for the door. “Nah. Just a couple
of blocks. Won’t take long.”
“Can we pick my luggage up first?”
I pause, hand on doorknob. “Luggage?”
“Yes. From my car. You know, toothbrush and…stuff.” Her cheeks are pink and she gives
a little shrug. “If I’m staying the night I need my things.”
“Sure.” My mind fills with the happy vision of Grace in my shower. I pull open the door,
keen to get home and put that particular fantasy into action.
Tension vibrates from her as we walk back into the bar. I swagger across the room,
ignoring the glances from my brothers and friends, and they soon get the message. Instead of
catcalls and jeers, they go back to their business, and Grace gives a relieved sigh as the door
swings shut behind us.
“At least it’s stopped raining.” She lowers her umbrella. “That’s my car, over there.”
I glance across the street and there’s no mistaking which car she’s talking about. It’s a
silver Mercedes coupe, and if I don’t warn my brothers the car’s off-limits, it’ll be picked clean by
morning.
She opens the trunk and takes out an overnight case, then looks at me expectantly, as
though she’s waiting for me to haul out the massive case that takes up the entire space. Is she
leaving home or going on vacation?
It’s none of my business, and I don’t know why the question even enters my head.
“You need all this shit for one night?”
“No, but I need a change of clothes.” She frowns as though something’s just occurred to
her. “Oh, you mean we’re walking to your house? I thought you’d have your car here. It doesn’t
matter, I can make do.”
She goes to shut the trunk, and I hold it open. “I don’t have a car.” Seriously, is she really
that clueless? Her surprised glance tells me that yeah, she really is. I haul her case out and
slam the trunk.
“There’s really no need.” She waves a finger at her case. “I don’t expect you to carry it
along the street. It’s too heavy.”
“The hell it is.” Even if the damn thing were full of bricks I wouldn’t back down now. “You
better have some killer underwear in here as payback.”

Blog Tour: Review of Enforcer’s Price by Sarah Hawthorne

ep

“Don’t look at something if you don’t want to hit it.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 199 pages

Book Description/Synopsis:

A man looking for redemption 

Colt spent eight months in prison for trusting the wrong woman, nearly bringing down his entire motorcycle club in the process. Now he needs to fix the MC’s cash flow problems or watch the only family he’s ever known fall apart.

Meeting Krista wasn’t part of his mission.

Falling for her could mean his destruction.

A single mom trying to get by 

Krista was ready to leave hooking behind when her ex cleaned out her bank account. Stuck working to provide for her daughter, she protects herself with one rule: never get involved with someone at the club.

Not that she wants to. Sex has become a job, a means to an end.

One night together as an escape 

Krista’s body wakes at Colt’s touch, allowing her to imagine a life after the MC. A future. A happily-ever-after, if only briefly. Krista brings out feelings in Colt he forgot could exist. But just as he begins to trust again, Krista’s truth is revealed—testing the very boundaries of Colt’s jealousy and faith.

Mindy’s Review: 

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

Krista is a strong woman that makes the best out of what she has. Being a single mother has limited her options on trying to survive and make money. Krista does tricks for the local MC to bring in extra cash. Her ex is a drug addict that she just cannot seem to get away from. He cleans out her account making life difficult for Krista. Having protection from the club seems to be all that she has.

Colt has made a lot of bad decisions in his life including his choice in girlfriends. Almost bringing his club down in the process he has a lot to make up for. Trying to get a smaller club to patch over will be his test. Meeting Krista happened by chance and now that he has had her on the back of his bike he knows he wants to keep her there.

Colt just happens to be in town to see if a smaller club has what it takes to patch into his club. One look at Krista and the fear in her eyes and he knows that he wants to protect her. He thinks she is just a  bartender for the club but when the truth is revealed can he accept what she has done? Not only is he dealing with unfamiliar feelings he is trying to figure out who the rat is in the club and how to deal with that situation. Not to mention Krista’s crazy ex.

This book gets really intense real quick. This is the authors first book that I know of and this really amazes me. This book is written so well. The characters are strong and independent. The sex is hot, the storyline is intense. I think this one blew me away. I loved it!

Excerpt:

“That was good, right?” He propped himself on an elbow. “You know I want you. But
you gotta be up for this as well. All of it. Not just once, but something real.”
I wanted to say yes. I wanted to tell him that we were going to live happily ever after.
Whatever I was doing right now could not continue. I’d lose all the business from the guys and
Becky and I would be broke. But a little fling. I could have that, right? One night where I could
feel wanted, cherished, loved.
I looked into his eyes and whispered, “I want you.”
It was the only thing I could promise right now. I knew he wanted more, but I couldn’t
give him that. I could only give him right now.
His arms went rigid. “No. Not just want, not just now. Tell me this is more than just a
quick fuck for you. Tell me you want more, or I’m
going to stop.” His eyes were steel as they
searched mine.
