Review: Tycoon

Tycoon Tycoon by Katy Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict live,
Wow I loved this book, I always love Katy’s strong Alpha males who always love so completely and in Tycoon it was no different.
Christos and Brynn originally met in High school and Brynn had a crush, but was too afraid to act on it. Christos didn’t think he was good enough, and when his mother died he left to make a better life for his younger brother and himself.
Fast forward and Brynn comes to New York to start a new business, and in desperate need of start-up money.
Brynn is at her wits end gets an appointment to see Christos. As a favour to a mutual friend he agrees to one meeting. One meeting with Brynn throws his life into chaos as he falls in love with the one that got away. Brynn is in the same boat, but because he is in a relationship she holds herself back.
Always the strong men are the ones brought to their knees. There is plenty of angst before the guy keeps the girl. As always with Katy Evans book I read straight through and enjoyed every minute. Miss Evans is the master at romance. A standalone with HEA even though I think we will meet up the some of the characters in the next one. I can’t wait for the Audio copy, so I can listen and get lost in this wonderful five star read again.
I received an ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Review: Longing

Longing Longing by Ciana Stone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great start to a new series which incorporates Angel Joe from Honky Tonk angels in the first book. This is a second chance at love for Sabine and Logan who have loved each other for years.
We have plenty to get your teeth into as there so much going on.
Logan's life as he knew it was a lie, the only person he trusts is Sabine.
I loved it as I knew that numbers 2,3 were already available.

Review: Hot Cop

Hot Cop Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Meet Hot Cop Chase Kelly all he wants to do when he meets Livia is to treat her to The Kelly Trio Dinner, Drinks and handcuffs
Hot Cop is a sexy romantic comedy.
We have Hot Cop Chase Kelly who meets Liv the Librarian and instantly falls in lust. Liv decides that her life will be over when she’s 30 and decide Hot Cop doesn’t do commitment so maybe he can be a baby donor. Enjoy the sex without the responsibility. As Liv is a librarian she puts together a contract for to sign stating the terms of the agreement.
Well we all know what’s going to happen, but it’s the fun they have getting there. This book was lots of fun once the sex is gets started which involved sex in stairwells, in the back of police cars while handcuffed. This book really hit the mark, and I thoroughly enjoyed i.e. finished in one go, with a big smile on my face.

Review: Captive Vow

Captive Vow Captive Vow by Alta Hensley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Captive Vow is a strange dark tale, and I don’t want to give away much.
Demi is a waitress in a small town with only her fellow waitress Maria her only friend. Demi has a terrible secret her mother is being executed after a terrorist explosion had killed innocent people and her mother was responsible. On the day of the execution Demi goes to work as usual and tries unsuccessfully to put it out of her mind. So it with pleasure she goes to help feed an old lady Viv with Parkinson’s to eat.
Demi wakes and finds she is trapped in a box and tied up so she can’t move. When Demi finds out she has been kidnapped by VIV the old lady she has helping for months she finds it unbelievable. Before long they arrive at a beautiful house in the middle nowhere, but Demi has been drugged and placed in the basement and tied to a chair naked. The Viv she meets there is like a totally different woman. Viv threatens her with Maria and her baby, if she won’t do as she’s told it will be Maria who will suffer as she has someone watching them. So Demi must train to be a good wife to her son Pope. Pope is appalled and wants to take Demi home straight away. When the situation is explained he does everything he can keep her save.
Even though the plot is dark, the relationship between Pope and Demi becomes very real, I enjoyed this fast but strange book. The route to a HEA wasn’t a usual but it still a twisted but enthralling read.

Review: Abducted

Abducted Abducted by Evangeline Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What I wouldn't give to be kidnapped by some 7ft alien hunk, and who wanted to give me plenty of hot hot sex . Joking aside the women are always very strong in Evangeline stories and this one is no different. Having the power to be able to unlock any device is a nifty power to have. I enjoyed the adventure, Sarden has to rescue his sister and purchased Zoe to do a swap, but now his has got to know her, he changes his mind. So together they have to find another way.
As always Evangeline's stories are a cut above the normal alien romps,
and I am on the next one in the series.

I read this book when it came out and loved every minute of it.
I also listened to the audio edition when it came out, and loved it.
I was feeling nostalgic and I listened to beautiful Beloved,

What a great job Jonathan Cole and Grace Jones do as the narrators, as they take you on their secret journey towards their love for each other.

Review: Cherished

Cherished Cherished by Christina Bauer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict live,
Wow this series gets better with every book, after defeating Vicomte in book two and Thea rescuing all the Necromancer’s. All she wanted to do was to go back to her family’s farm, and just forget about magic and be a farmer. Phillip her friend’s brother has come to give her advice on fitting in the locals who still see her as a witch.
Betrayed by someone she trusted explicitly, and finding out Rowan needs her help Elea rushes to Casters country.
This is a fantastic book, so filled with action. Elea comes into her own to defeat all to defend and support Rowan. Even though others have other plans for her. When staying with Rowan she finds some of his own family is working against him.
This is a rich colour filled world created by Christina Bauer lets you immerse yourself in the non-stop action. Elea comes into her own with the love and support of Rowan. This must be read after books one and two as this is not a standalone. This is definitely a five star read, as the books have gotten better as the series has continued.

Concealed Concealed by Christina Bauer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say each book gets better than the one before.
This was non stop action, one again Rowan and Elea team up to defeat an even worst baddie than the Tsar.
This has an almost complete story following the main characters, but cannot be read alone.
I am in awe of Christina Bauer imagination and world building.
It is so easy to put yourself into the stories and not want to come out.

Review: Bare Yourself

Bare Yourself Bare Yourself by Alex Grayson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book on behalf Book Addict live,
This is Tegan’s story. He’s the exhibitionist. He likes people to watch him having sex. He likes to see them take their pleasure watching him getting his.
Tegan meets Willow on the side of the road when her car has a flat tyre. She leaves him with a kiss and she stays in his mind.
Circumstances bring them to cross paths again and neither of them can deny the attraction. Tegan gets Willow to discover her own dirty side and once he discovers this there’s no stopping his feelings.
As I hadn’t read book one it didn’t stop me reading this as a standalone. This is group of friends who met at sex addiction clinic, and as a group they try to help each other cope.
Willow is running from her own problems and has come to Atlanta to stay with friends until she finds a job and place to live. Very soon Willow and Tegan are falling for each other. I found Tegan very likable and Willow is a sweetheart.
There are reasons for Tegan’s sex addiction which is kinda harrowing and heartbreaking. I just loved him!!  The way he tries to help friends with their addictions you knew he’s deeper than he appears. He’s just a really good guy, especially the way he cares for Willow.
Willow was highly likeable. She’s funny and brave and I loved how she challenged Tegan on every level!
As you can imagine the loving scenes were off the charts!! Very imaginative kept me glued to my kindle, which it is still steaming.
The story flowed well and kept me all the way through, storyline isn’t just about the addiction there’s so much more to it. The things with her brother kinda broke my heart in places. So don’t think it’s just a sex book its way more than that.

Review: Crave Me

Crave Me Crave Me by Stacey Lynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this on behalf Book Addict live,
Chloe has always had a crush on her sister ex-boyfriend Simon. When her sister Cassie accused Simon of abusing her, and everything went bad so she hadn’t seen him for a few years. Chloe met Simon at masquerade ball and asked him to train her as a submissive. When Simon refused Chloe joined Luminous BDSM Club, but it wasn’t until six months later after a scene gone wrong she sees Simon again. Simon is livid after seeing Chloe so badly hurt, and offers to train her one month.
Simon and Chloe were a great couple together, they were perfect for each other. What made this more interesting was seeing Chloe as a strong business woman with her own right. Simon is a high school teacher, and the hockey coach so it was important to keep his sex life private. No billionaires, just a normal couple who enjoyed BDSM. The BDSM was very light, and there is plenty of hot sex.
If you enjoy a quick sexy love story, then you should enjoy this.

Review: Found Underneath

Found Underneath Found Underneath by K.L. Kreig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I Reviewed on behalf of Book Addict live,
Wow she has done it again, after waiting with bated breath for book two and it didn’t disappoint.
It was great catching up with Willow and Shaw and watch them paddle in waters of a relationship and love. All the while in the background we have others trying to undermine Preston’s mayoral campaign and get back at Shaw and Willows relationship.
We see lots more of Willow’s background in this part of the duo. This book puts your emotions in uproar as you go through the story with Shaw. We also get to know Shaw’s little sister Annabelle a lot better. There is a lot going on in this book and it doesn’t get much better than this wonderful duet. This was read straight through as soon as received the arc. I LOVED IT! I am waiting for the Audio edition so I can relive over again!

Review: Chance at Redemption

Chance at Redemption Chance at Redemption by Samatha Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This arc was reviewed for Book Addict live,
Chance at Redemption is the story of Luke, Madison’s little brother and the bitch from hell Gwen.
Gwen’s father is a US Senator and has been indulged all her life. Finally he has had enough and cut her off. At first she thinks that he will give in, but by the time she realises he is serious she has no job and no money and breaks down in a ladies washroom. Madison feels sorry for her and hires her for her brother’s bar.
When she comes into the bar to work in 6” heels with full make up and her boobs nearly popping out of top. Luke gives her a chance and she soon learns to wear chucks instead.
Well I loved Luke and Gwen, they had so much in common with parent problems. Much to Luke’s surprise Gwen works really hard and soon becomes a firm favourite with clientele. Luke and Gwen soon become an item, all seems to be going well. Until a friend from Gwen’s previous life starts to cause trouble.
Through the love Luke shows Gwen begins she accepts herself as she is without the hair extensions and heavy make-up. This is lovely read about love and actually healing past problems. In the end I was routing for Gwen as much as Luke they made a great couple. So if you enjoy a romantic comedy with plenty going on, then this the book for you.

Review: Beltway Betrayers

Beltway Betrayers Beltway Betrayers by Taylor Marsh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed by Book Addict live,
This book was a joy to read a suspense with side dish of romance. At the root of the problems T.J. and Alex faced in this lively adventure is their exes.
As you can read in the blurb there is a lot of unhappy people with Alex and T.J relationship. Alex is a successful life coach helping women take control in their lives. So she finds it difficult when T.J. tries to protect and advise her. The couple have only been together 6 months and it’s the first time they have fallen in love and the adjustment is hard for both of them.
So when Alex goes to Los Angeles and all hell breaks loose, the action and suspense come out to play. Without giving anything away all most of the problems they are resolved by the end of the book, but it takes is lot of action to get there. I loved Phyllis T.J.’s stepmother and Bella they showed the men what is to be strong women. This is the first book I have read from Taylor Marsh and it want be the last.

Review: Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey

Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed for Book Addict live,
Goaltending is another sports romance from the pen of Jami Davenport. There are set in the same sports world in Seattle, but can be read completely standalone.
This was the story of Brick a twenty something playboy womaniser who spends his free time Drinking and having one night stands. After a night of carousing with friends, his is woken up early one morning and finds a 5 year old girl standing on his doorstep with a note in her hands. What’s a guy going to do when suddenly finds out he has a daughter and her mother and grandmother are both dead.
Find a nanny, in comes Amelia to the rescue. This was about falling in love with your child as well as a woman for the first time in Brick’s life. At times it was sad to see someone who thinks they are only capable of one form of behavior because that’s what they been told.
This is a sweet love story about building a family and a new life. Macy was a sweetheart and so easy to love, at times I was crying and at others smiling. So another one bites the dust in this Seattle based sports series. I’m looking forward to see who will be in the next book in the series.

Review: Set Me Free

Set Me Free Set Me Free by M.R. Leahy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very dark read, but a compelling one. This story revolves around a child sex slave school, where children are being taught how to please their future buyer.
This story follows little 10 year old Emmalyn whose own mother puts her there, telling her father doesn’t want her anymore. When she taken to slaves’ quarters she shares a room with a twelve child year old boy Kodah who looks after her and helps her through the nightmare that never ends.
This book follows the two until Emmalyn is sixteen and auctioned and bought by the mysterious Drifter. This book is not for the faint of heart, it deals with child abuse. It is an absolving read and it finishes on a more positive note. Book two is coming soon and I can’t wait to find out what happens and to read their HEA

O MY GOD I have just finished book 2, and I’m blown away. When Emmalyn lost her memory after thinking Kodah was dead I was devastated. When meet every one five years later, and the girls were living in Drifter’s house in Texas. He is gradually trying to guide Emma to California to find her future and her past.
Before Emmi leaves for California she resolves to speak to her shadow that turns up once a month on 26 of every month. We know its Kodah checking on her, she knows deep down he means her no harm.
I don’t want to spoil this for you so I will say everything happens in California, and I was riveted and I read the book in one go. I can’t recommend this enough, but Bk 1 needs to be read first. This deals with sensitive subject matter, but ends with a HEA for the main couple.

Review: Dating-ish

Dating-ish Dating-ish by Penny Reid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
I must say I fell in love with the Mad AI scientist Matt, and Marie the journalist that had given on dating, especially after going on a date to meet a mature bearded man who is her perfect match, and meets someone else completely. At first Marie finds Matt irritating, but gradually he starts to grow on her.
Marie (one of our knitting crew) and Matt (previously met and adored) come together in a story that is romantic and heartfelt and smart and funny. Dating-ish is a book that will speak to and appeal to a large audience. Anyone who has ever felt the very real pressure and struggle of dating will commiserate with an exasperated Marie.
The unrealistic expectations for both men and women seeking companionship will feel a kinship with both Matt and Marie. The adventures of dating and the alternatives to them are explored in this book. Marie is looking for her right person, and you will be cheering for nerdy, adorable Matt along the way.
Knitting in the City fans will get more glimpses into the group and what has been happening since the last book in the series. Dating-ish really shows the depth and the progression of their friendships and how they have branched out to include their partners as well. Dating-ish is a real winner for me, and I can’t recommend enough.
At times I was laughing out loud, my husband was quite jealous. This is a witty and sexy book. A must read for fans of Penny Reid.

Review: Her Alien Masters

Her Alien Masters Her Alien Masters by Renee Rose
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I reviewed for Book Addict live, 3.5 stars
Mira survived the horrific crash that had inadvertently killed the innocent inhabitants of the planet Pra’kir, facing a possible death sentence along with her four other shipmates. There is no hope of ever returning to Earth, the spaceship exploded the lives of several innocent inhabitants lost, which in turn has led to a very resentful population.
Waiting in prison Mira had anticipated a possible death sentence being requested by the families of those Pra’kirian killed when the spaceship crashed and exploded. She is astounded to discover that she and the four other shipmates are to be “fostered” into society, enabling them to give back their service within their appointed placements for the term of their individual lives.
Mira is placed with the family of three orphaned girls, currently being cared for by their totally unprepared twin uncles, their mother had been killed when her ship crashed and exploded. Within this placement she is to be fostered and disciplined by either of both Jakk and Gav’n, these two enormous HUNKS never shy from their responsibility, often coming up with their own ingenious ideas. They know if they can’t make Mira to submit to the local ways, she can be taken away from them.
Mira, a trained engineer accepts that she will never return to earth, she initially thought caring for three children would be hard however she has quickly started to care for each of them a great deal. The punishments are harder to handle, however the benefits implemented by these two gorgeous hunks more than make up for it in the sex dept. It’s great addition to the series the characters were larger than life, there was plenty of love, laughter, tears and discipline along with some amazing sexiness that will hold any readers imagination I enjoyed the book, and it was a quick easy read. Even though this number 3,it can be read as a standalone

Review: The Tempest

The Tempest The Tempest by Brit Constantine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book on behalf of Book Addict live,
I really did enjoy following Lenic and Felicity’s story. I like how Felicity is a vlogger and we get into her head a bit when she sees an opportunity for a video. Felicity’s character really made me laugh at times.
But deep down you can tell both Lenic and Felicity have something dark in their history. We don’t find the reason until later in the book.
 I like how the story goes beyond the viral video of Lenic in the shower.
I was bit confused at first with the chapter titles, because the author quotes the characters. The book starts in Lenic’s perspective, in the prologue, but then the entire book follows Felicity’s perspective. I thought it was switching back and forth because the chapter headings had the characters’ name beneath the quote, but I caught on eventually.
Lenic’s perspective does come back later on in the book, and I like how he is portrayed.  I managed to overlook those details and I remained focus on knowing the story, learning more about the characters. At times I couldn’t stop my imagination going Viral especially the charity car wash event with Lenic’s friends stripped to the waist


I will say there is a lot of sex in this story, but it was used to show the growing intimacies in and out bed. All in all an enjoyable read, I loved the epilogues. It was a very intense relationship with an HEA

Hank Lawless definitely did not disappoint! Hank is an alpha male that's tough and very good with his hands, he's sweet and loving and so deliciously hot!!!
Hope Moon is a sweet and kind single mom that's guarded and righty so! The pain and suffering she experienced from her mobster husband just broke my heart. The chemistry between Hank and Hope is so sexy and passionate it will leave you swooning and begging for more. This is Jane Anthony's first dark romance and in my opinion she nailed it!

Review: Bombshell

Bombshell Bombshell by C.D. Reiss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict Live,
This is an addition to the original review, I listened to the Audio edition and it was great. I thoroughly recommend.
We first met Brad and Cara at the West Side Nannies,Cara supporting her friend Blakely who was being interviewed for a new position. When “BRING THE WET ONES” the call for anyone looking after children. Cara's meeting with Nicole is when she had pooped herself out of fear of being left with strangers. Cara manages to care and clean the child. Then Brad an A list Superstar who is used to getting his own way hires Cara and Blakely to look after his little girl.
Little Nicole immediately takes a shine to Cara and so does Brad. He falls for her from the beginning, but Cara plays by the rules especially after what happened to Blakely. This book is great, the Bombshell from the title is Nicole a 5 year old that has been sent to live with her father after her mother dies. Brad is still in a state of shock not knowing anything about children.
I loved this story, the relationship between Brad, Nicole and Cara was wonderful to watch develop, I can’t recommend this book enough. Come and enjoy another winner from CD Reiss. I’ve already ordered the Audio edition on May 1st, so I can enjoy it all over again.

Review: Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans

Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans Sonora: And The Eye of the Titans by T.S. Hall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I This first book of a series, so there was a lot of world building so there is a lot to take in and a lot we still need to discover, but Sonora and the Eye of the Titans sets everything up nicely and I am already in the “I need to know what happens next” mode.
I really liked our 4 main characters Allora, Katie, Dax, and Tanner as well as the secondary ones in the form of the adults. A part of me wanted to kick Allora and Tanner’s asses in gear, I mean really but I guess that opens up the story into more interesting moments between the two.
As usual, I am not going to share too much of the plot because I want you to read the book; and where would the fun be if I made it all easy for you all.
I think the story line is really interesting and original as I tend to love any sort of twists to my favourite old myths and this baby right here fits the bill. I am going to highly recommend it and hope that the next book in the series is available soon as I am an impatient one!
I am keeping my eyes out for this series and for anything that Travis will come up with. as the series has wonderful potential and what matters is what happens next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict Live,
We first met Brad and Cara at the West Side Nannies,Cara supporting her friend Blakely who was being interviewed for a new position. When “BRING THE WET ONES” the call for anyone looking after children. Cara's meeting with Nicole is when she had pooped herself out of fear of being left with strangers. Cara manages to care and clean the child. Then Brad an A list Superstar who is used to getting his own way hires Cara and Blakely to look after his little girl.
Little Nicole immediately takes a shine to Cara and so does Brad. He falls for her from the beginning, but Cara plays by the rules especially after what happened to Blakely. This book is great, the Bombshell from the title is Nicole a 5 year old that has been sent to live with her father after her mother dies. Brad is still in a state of shock not knowing anything about children.
I loved this story, the relationship between Brad, Nicole and Cara was wonderful to watch develop, I can’t recommend this book enough. Come and enjoy another winner from CD Reiss. I’ve already ordered the Audio edition on May 1st, so I can enjoy it all over again.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Review: Faking It with Damian

Faking It with Damian Faking It with Damian by D.J. Hunnam
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book on behalf of Book Addict live.
I absolutely fell in love with Damian, I thought he was great and I want to keep him. This story is set in the workplace where the sparks were flying between Damian and Janice.
The only thing I couldn’t get over is Janice being so cold with him, I know it warmed up, but I couldn’t warm up to her character. It maybe because I want her man.
I really enjoyed this really sexy romance, there was plenty of other things going on with Damian and Janice that kept me reading straight through in one seating. If you love a hot romance with plenty to get your teeth into this is the book for you.

Review: Harmful Rush: A Remedy Stand-Alone Novel

Harmful Rush: A Remedy Stand-Alone Novel Harmful Rush: A Remedy Stand-Alone Novel by Debra Doxer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book on behalf of Book Addict. Live
Harmful Rush is the first book I have read by Debra Doxer and won’t be the last. Although set in the Remedy world, it can be read as a standalone.
I have to say this book had surprises, I just imagined a girl goes to college meets cute guy with the usual angst. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Skylark Samuels is a girl with a secret, a secret that was exposed during a shooting at her school. Skylark goes to college away from home until things quieten down and it’s the best thing she did.
This is a book I really enjoyed, it was different in many respects, but Sky and Dylan were great together and she saves him in more ways than one. This was a love story with the paranormal thrown in, which combined made an enjoyable mixture. I also loved Trevor and Maggie they made me smile.

Review: The Bohemian and the Businessman

The Bohemian and the Businessman The Bohemian and the Businessman by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict live,
This is a lovely story about Priscilla, the wild arty sister and a straight-laced Shane who she teases all the time when she worked at her father’s company.
When she comes home from Paris desperately needing help, the only one she can turned to is Shane. They have an agreement a marriage of convenience, for a year to get her inheritance, and Shane should get his promotion.
Nothing goes to plan as Priscilla and Shane discover when they become engaged. As more secrets are spilled, the attraction has become more real every day. As usual I loved this book from Katy Regnery, lots of romance with a hot hunks and strong heroines. This story just flowed and was a beautiful read.
Now I can’t wait for the other Story Sisters to get HEA.

Review: Unfinished Night: The Complete Duet

Unfinished Night: The Complete Duet Unfinished Night: The Complete Duet by Violet Duke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict Live,
I have reviewed as two Books to keep the story straight.
Before That Night Book one
This was a very emotional read, pulling you into the story and play on your heartstrings.

We meet Addison as she go for a job, so she keep looking after siblings Kylie and Tanner. I should say second job, as she has a part time one that doesn’t pay enough. Addison just needs to buy time so she can save and then on her 21st birthday, then apply for custody for her siblings. While working the late shift at diner where a lot of cops come before and shifts as it is near police station. This is where she meets Caine, and they become friendly, but as the months pass this changes into something more.
I loved this book it made me cry like a baby. I was devastated at the end even though I knew there was a second book going in.
Book 2
Every night without you

We pick up the many years later and Addison moved back to the area with a different identity, and manager of a centre for the homeless halfway house. Helping family become part a community learning to help each other. Caine is driving as he spots Addison and follows her back to the centre.
We find nothing has changed with the reason she left, but Cain and Addison decide to fight the stalker together this time. It was great to meet her siblings much older selves. This book was so heartfelt I was crying and laughing loving Caine so much for his devotion to Addison. These both books are emotional and you just get pulled into the story. If you love romance with suspense and intrigue with HEA then this is for you.

Review: Low Blow

Low Blow Low Blow by Kristen Hope Mazzola
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict Live,
Low Blow is not the usual sports romance. It was much better, when Griffin meets Olive it was an instant attraction which never wavered only got stronger.
Low Blow has characters from previous books, but it can be read as a standalone. It was unusual way to meet the love of your life. I loved this book, it was a wonderful story and enjoyed it all.

Review: Provocative

Provocative Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict Live.
I have to say how much I love this author's books. The opening scene at the beginning of this story narrated by Nick and his very descriptive first meeting with Faith and the Bank Officials” Suit number one and number two started me off and I was hooked. Even though he is there for his own reasons, Faith captures his interest straight away. They’re both acting like its one night when they both know this is something more.
Both of them are looking for proof of foul play concerning her mother’s actions after her father died, and her mother’s death. Nick is also after the truth of his father’s death, and is there to see if Faith is involved. The more time they spend together, the more they trust each other. I love the way everything is the story draws you in, and before you know it the end and you realise there is more going on than you thought, and it is definitely deadly for someone. Now I have to wait for part two. As always the sex is hot, Nick is a sexy alpha that loves Faith’s provocative nature.

Review: His Human Rebel

His Human Rebel His Human Rebel by Renee Rose
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this on behalf of Book addict. Live
This is book 4 in the Zandian Masters series, this is a Sci Fi Romance with plenty of sex thrown in. I also enjoy that a 7ft male with horns wanting to mate me is one of my fantasies, the author captures this perfectly for me. I had to have a cold shower after this one.
Cambry has been a slave in a factory, and then sentence to death when she and the others humans were rescued by the Zandians. Cambry doesn’t trust anyone, and when Lundric a Zandian guard tries to make her feel safe she keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop.
After plenty of action in and out of the bedroom we finally get their Hea.Without giving anything away all the books follow on from each other, but each couple get their own story, as with the others in the series there is plenty of spanking and other alpha sexual favours Lundric wants to do to his Human mate. So now I have to go back and catch on the ones I missed.

Review: Rough Around the Soul

Rough Around the Soul Rough Around the Soul by Maria Monroe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a quick, but enjoyable read. Jake meets a young woman who asks him to sleep with her. Jake finds her attractive, not realising he has been given a false name he takes her home for the night. After a fantastic night of sex Aria leaves and he has no way to find her.
There is a lot going in this story, it is told with alternating views between Jake and Melanie which drives the story. It was a bit of insta love, with a side helping of sex thrown in.it was quick read and this is the first time I’ve read a book from this author and it won’t be my last.

Review: The Makeup Test

The Makeup Test The Makeup Test by Vanessa M. Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Make-up Test is feel good romance, and with some angst with and funny bits thrown in. As with other books in the Ritter University world than can be read as standalones.
 
This time is Parker’s turn for romance, when she is left alone in her dorm before the Hols. Parker is desperate to finish up her last clients make-up order and then she is suddenly handcuffed with a gun aimed towards her. Campus security call the police because he thinks she is cooking Meths.
 
When she is arrested it starts a series of events that escalate out of control. The only good thing to come out of the situation is she meets Cade. Parker and Cade still have a lot problems to work through before they end up together. This was a quick read but with plenty going on. I enjoyed the read, and really felt for Parker, but she got her HEA. That all am going to tell you, find out for yourself.

Review: Rough

Rough Rough by Sybil Bartel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow I am trying to cool down that was a hot read. Jared was one hunk of a man who was not expecting to meet a woman like Sienna. He was affected straight away, and started treating her different from the beginning. There is plenty of hot sex and some of the things he says to Sienna my god hot, the steam is still coming off my kindle.
 
This book is part of a series of standalone books with a connected group of ex-servicemen who have the left the service with a variety of problems and use sex to cope. A enjoyed the story, lots of intrigue, great sex with a hot man what else do you want? I’m looking forward to Danes story Grind coming soon, can’t wait

Review: Commander in Chief

Commander in Chief Commander in Chief by Katy Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review
Commander in Chief by Katy evans
Added note the Audio book has come out, I listened all the night, bringing everything to life for me.
This second instalment in the series starts two months after Matt winning the Election for the Presidency. Charlotte has been travelling with her friend in Europe, but has come back home to watch Matt be sworn in as President. They both knew going into the relationship, if he won the Presidency even though they loved each other they would part. Charlotte still loved him more than ever, and missed him so much.
Matt is still in love with Charlotte, and decided to win her back to his side.
We see through the eyes of one of the most famous couple in America and the rest of the western world how they conduct their relationship.
Matt realises he will do anything to get Charlotte back into his life. When they work closely together as Matt asked her to stand in as the Acting First Lady because he is bachelor.
We see a wonderful romance with Matt trying his to win Charlotte, and run the Country. They both are incredibly busy, but when Matt can put time aside he spends the making feel her feel loved.It hard dating the President of the United States, but both are determined to make it work. So I recommend you press that button and order the book yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

Review: A Handful of Fire

A Handful of Fire A Handful of Fire by Alexis Alvarez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict.Live
A Handful of Fire is Wonderful story with a emotional subject matter. It is about a Shai who specialises in therapy to help children dealing with serious illness. Through treating Michael a super intelligent but an unhappy boy trying to cope with a life threatening illness, and the treatment side effects. Through treating Michael she meets and falls for his father Gabriel.
Gabriel is a widower and he isn’t coping well with his son's illness. Full of anguish he loses himself in work and vain women.
This is a romance that take time to build, and even then not everything perfect. I love this book has substance and it’s not insta love or sex. The sex is hot, but Gabriel can still be a jerk, even if he is a hot jerk. We get HEA it takes work to get there, and is all the better for it. I enjoyed it and read it in one seating, it’s not long but has plenty to get your teeth into.

Review: Oliver

Oliver Oliver by F.G. Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have reviewed this on behalf the Book Addict Blog.
Soulmates destined to collide” is the perfect way to describe this beautiful second chance romance.
Oliver has been tracking a woman who has been on the run from a nightmare for 14 years. Fallyn Blackwood and her daughter have been running using false identities to get by.
Oliver has had nothing in his life for 6 years since the death of his one love. When he is handed picture of Fallyn and asked to find and protect by her sister. He slowly comes back to life as he follows her from town to town.
Finally they meet and Fallyn and Oliver really fall for each, Fallyn also a mother to fourteen year old has never had a loving relationship with a man. It was a beautiful to see Oliver earning her trust. This is the third in a series, but can be read as a standalone with its own HEA.
Fallyn was a very strong woman with what she had survived, and managed bring up her daughter on her own from a young age. Oliver was really smitten it was a great sexy romance with suspense and I really enjoyed it. A romance with that extra dimension. This definitely ticked all my boxes, and can’t wait for the next book.
