Dark Desires (The Hunter Chronicles Book 2)

By Claire Marta

deadly-desires

Synopsis

Jasmine Hunter finds herself knee deep in a decadent vampire nest in Prague. A killer lurks the medieval city and is preying on blood donors who frequent the home of the local Vampire Mistress.

With her teammates from Scotland Yard in tow Jasmine, must attempt to discover the murderer’s identity.

But will things go to plan? Sex dungeons, submissive human pets, and sexy dominant males are a lot for a rookie to cope with.

Especially when Eric is the last person she expects to see…

Requested to assist with the hunt for a vicious serial killer by an old friend, Eric is left speechless to find Jasmine offering herself up as food. The attraction between them is burning as red hot as before, and his lust for the feisty female is just as deep.

More disturbing, his emotions which he normally has leashed, once more slip in her presence. Yet this time they feel different. Darker, primal, and savage yet Eric cannot explain why. The insidious pull of the other predators around him is also more than a sweet temptation he finds himself unable to resist.

Combining forces, Jasmine and Eric must play the parts of Master and submissive.

But nothing is as it seems.

Can they work out who the killer is in a household full of deception and secrets before it is too late? Or will a price be paid in blood….

Review

Dark Desires is book two in The Hunter Chronicles Series.  It picks up months later after Eric and Jasmine’s night in Paris.  We come to find out that Eric has had  no communication with Jasmine since that night.  Which has left Jasmine a little confused and frustrated.

Eric is still hot but doesn’t seem to understand women very well.  He is still very protective and is just beginning to realise what he wants.

It seems that Jasmine has decided that she is done waiting on Eric.  She dives into work.  She wants to prove herself to her coworkers and her boss that she can be a great field agent.

On her first assignment, she goes undercover in a vampire nest that leads her right back to Eric. As they start working together to track down a killer, Eric starts having stronger feelings than he has ever had before. He is not sure what is going on with him just that he has to have Jasmine.

Claire Marta has seamlessly put a cast of characters that work so well together.  There is a really family feeling between Jasmine, Twitch and Gemma. Their banter is so funny.  There was also a laugh out loud moment between Twitch and Eric that even when I think about it now brings a smile to my face.  New characters were also added to this book:  Asier, Kane and Conall.  There is a complicated relationship between Asier and Eric when it came to Jasmine. Each want to keep her safe but there are other forces at play that interrupt a long lasting friendship.

This book as mystery and suspense.  It will be interesting to see where Clarie Marta takes Eric and Jasmine’s relationship in the future.

Submission is Not Enough (Masters and Mercenaries #12)

By Lexi Blake

submission

Synopsis

A fallen hero reborn

Theo Taggart lost everything the night he died. His family, his beautiful Erin, and worst of all, he lost himself. A twisted doctor brought him back from the brink of death, but reprogrammed his identity to serve her will. Rescued by his brothers, he must fight to reclaim the man he was and the life, and love, that were stolen from him.

A love worth fighting for

Erin Argent thought she’d lost Theo forever. When he walked back into her life, it was nothing short of a miracle. Months of torture and conditioning at the hands of Dr. Hope McDonald have done damage to Theo that may never be mended. He has no memory of her or the life they shared. Breaking through to him, and helping him rediscover all he lost, will be the toughest mission she’s ever faced. Luckily for Theo, Erin loves a good fight.

Their reunion under siege

Unfortunately, Hope is far from done with Theo Taggart. Obsessed with her prize experiment, she will do anything to get him back. If the only way to finally break him of his past life is to kill Erin and his son, then she’s only too happy to oblige…

Review

Submission is Not Enough has now become my personal favorite book from this series.  Lexi Blake combined humour and emotional heartache that had me laughing and crying and laughing and crying.  I love how she brought back all of the characters that we love and we got to know new characters that will find a place in our hearts.

Erin is a truly special person.  She was a tough kid that had to overcome what was lacking in her family.  She deserved to have an easy adulthood but that wasn’t in the cards for her.  It was her tenacity that won me over.  She learned so much while she thought Theo was dead and she never gives up on a fight.

Theo is a man that has literally lost everything he knows to be true.  His family hasn’t given up on him but he has no idea who he is or what it means to be a Taggart.  When he comes back from the dead he has to find himself again and relearn everything about what his family is made of.

Hope McDonald is the very definition of evil, but brilliant, mastermind.  She is obsessed with Theo and will do everything in her power to get him back.  She is definitely a person that you can just hate.

Lexi Blake put in the right mix of past and present into Submission is Not Enough.  Many times in this book we were taken to the past and learned what brought these two together.  I also loved all the humour that was injected into this story.  Ian provided a lot of humour and a lot of tough brotherly love.  This book had everything in it that makes this series so great.

The Pool Boy

By Penny Wylder

br-the-pool-boy

Synopsis

The second I saw her, I had to have her.
When my friend asked me to cover for him at his pool cleaning job, I figured I’d make some extra cash. I didn’t expect to find myself face to face with a sweet set of curves named Vera.
Then she started strutting around in her bikini.
I guess her goal is to piss her rich dad off. I’m clearly not the kind of guy he wants her near.
But if she thinks I’ll let her toy with me and not follow through… I’ve got a surprise for her.
A huge surprise that wants to rip through my pants.
I’ll screw her in the pool shed, the garden, and right in her room while her parents sleep down the hall.
I don’t care if her dad finds out or not—this girl is MINE.

Review

THE POOL BOY is a hot and quick read, and is the first book I’ve read from Penny Wylder.

James and Vera are very likeable characters and you could feel the chemistry between them right from the start.  Vera is not your typical rich girl.  She cares about those less fortunate than her and it’s her dream to work for a company that designs and builds homes for those that need them.  James is not the kind of man her father would ever pick for her.  He’s not from a wealthy family and is filling in as caretaker for their estate.  Vera is attracted to him at first sight, and if it pisses off her father that she’s sleeping with the help, well that’s just a bonus.

The sex between James and Vera dominates this story and it is hot.  Scorching hot.  That scene involving the garden hose?  Yowza.  The entire story (except the epilogue) takes place in the span of a week, so it is an insta-love.  Vera’s father’s involvement in her job-hunting endeavours was easy to spot right from the start and by the end of the book, the status of her relationship with her parents is left unresolved.  THE POOL BOY is told in dual POVs and is a stand-alone novella that comes with a nice HEA.  There is an option to read another epilogue that takes place a year later, but to access that you need to sign up to the author’s newsletter, which I think is sneaky.  I mean no offence to the author, but I’m not going to sign up to a newsletter just to find out how the story really ends.

Acquired Asset

By ZN Willett

acquired-asset

Synopsis

In the business world, Christopher Colby is a force to be reckoned with—admired by many, he’s an intelligent, confident, smooth-talking COO who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

To Quinn Cordell, Christopher is a demon reincarnated—a sexy, self-centered, cocky bastard who is trying his damnedest to take over her family’s company.

Normally, Quinn handles men like that very well—with precision and tactics of her own.

Quinn understands Christopher’s type.

But what Quinn doesn’t understand is, why she allowed Christopher to grope her in a supply closet?

Review

Acquired Asset is a a high powered story of trust and love within corporate america.   I loved this story of two families that were enemies at one point and now forced to merge together to create a super corporation.  That doesn’t mean that they like each other though.  And trying to figure out how to blend the new corporation will prove challenging.

I loved Quinn’s character.  She was everything I wanted her to be.  She was tough and didn’t take any crap from anyone.  She knew she had to  work hard because her counterpart with the other family was a man but that didn’t stop her.  The only thing she didn’t do well was put her heart on the line.

Christopher was the perfect man for Quinn.  He injected the right amount of humour and passion that made her crazy. He worked hard to get through her walls that she built up over many years.  I loved his directness and honesty.

They have huge hurdles to overcome.  (Mainly their families.) Christopher’s mother is a major bee-otch.  Quinn’s father isn’t happy about the situation either.

Acquired Asset made me laugh, cry and get enraged.  The perfect trifecta.  ZN Willett injected the right amount of passion that made this story addictive.  And the ending had an emotional punch that made want to read the book all over again.

Raw (Raw Family #1)

By Belle Aurora

41id7x5jqjl-_sx331_bo1204203200_

Synopsis

***Author Note: This is not a love story. This is a story of love gone wrong.*** Growing up the way I did, you’d think I’d be more screwed up than what I actually am. Soon as I turned sixteen, I left that bump in the road I called home and took my chances on the street. Best decision I ever made. Now, at the age of twenty six, I’m educated, employed and damn good at my job. My friends have become my family. Like me, they know what it’s like to grow up unloved. But the saying is true. The world makes way for those who know where they are going. That’s me. I know where I’m going and I’ll get there eventually. On my own terms and at my own pace. But then there’s him. I feel his eyes on me. I see him hiding in plain sight. He watches me. He makes me feel. It’s unconventional. But it’s real. I’m sure you’re wondering how a person falls in love with their stalker. So am I. This isn’t a story. This is my life. ***This book includes situations that some may find uncomfortable.

Review

Quote: There’s something about Twitch.  He’s just … raw.  Everything about him is raw.  And Gritty. And Unbound.

I have to be honest, this is the fourth time I have read this book – Twitch will cut you apart, break your heart and fracture your soul. Alexa and Twitch have such an incredible journey to travel and it’s not over by a long shot.

I first read Raw in 2014, then twice in 2015 whilst I patiently waited for the next instalment of the Raw Family.  I am sorry, I was not prepared to share my thoughts, I was not prepared to review until Dirty (Raw Family #2) was going to be released.  Once you finish this book you will understand, try being me like so many other readers and waiting since 2014.  The author has received such passionate pleas for the next instalment, you will understand when again you turn that last page.

Raw is one book that has simply stayed with me forever.   I have now read Raw again in preparation for Dirty (Raw Family #2) and I still am emotionally shattered upon finishing this story, it is not over by a long shot.  You will pick up Dirty (Raw Family #2) in the hope that you are given more.

Fair warning, you are not given a HEA however you are given hope.

Alexa and Twitch are explosive, passionate and sensual, you know when you read a book and you get that tingly feeling in your belly, you feel a little bit sick because you just know it is going be hard.  Raw is definitely gritty and will devastate your soul but in the end you will love it – Life is not easy, Love is not easy but sometimes the journey is what makes you appreciate what you have.

Be With Me

By Maya Banks

17290627

Synopsis

So much closer than just friends.

Hutch Bishop, Cam Douglas, and Sawyer Pritchard were juvenile delinquents with a reckless and wildly sexy side. But they had more in common than that. They had Regina Fallon, a wealthy but lonely girl from the right side of the tracks who formed an unusual friendship with the boys. She felt protected. She felt needed. She felt loved…for the first time in her life. By all three.

Today, she’s a police officer, dedicated to her badge, and wary of reigniting her relationship with the hot trio after one night of passion left her confused—and stunned—by what they wanted from her. But when a mysterious attempt is made on her life, Hutch, Cam, and Sawyer jump in to protect her again. Now, the four are forming an all-new bond. It’s more exciting, more intense, and—as a killer looms in the shadows—more dangerous than ever before. 

Review

Be With Me is a scorching read that will give you tingles with the anticipation of passionate sexual encounters.  Cam, Sawyer and Hutch all provide this story with their own dynamic personalities.  Reggie is just a stubborn woman who has so much love and I felt a connection to her immediately.

We follow Reggie as she fights her attraction at every step and I loved seeing how her wall of emotional defence gets torn down by Cam, Sawyer and Hutch.  Each of these men feed her soul and repair her heart with hope after their misunderstanding 12 months earlier.

The story flows perfectly from the first few pages.  We are taken on a ride of mystery along with three men who are determined to make the woman they love choose them for her happiness.

I thought the menage scenes and how they were inserted into the storyline were perfectly timed.  They were not just thrown in unnecessarily and played their part in these four characters realising they can have a future and happy ever after. Individual sexual encounters between Reggie and each of the guys were totally in line with their personalities as men and nurturers to her, it made me love each of them.

This is the fourth time I have read this story and it simply does not disappoint and is one of those books you will read once a year just to return the characters.  Be With Me delivers friends, family, love and some simply explosive sexual encounters that will leave you wanting more.

Ruthless (A Lawless Novel #1)

By Lexi Blake

Ruthless

Synopsis

The Lawless siblings are bound by vengeance. Riley, Drew, Brandon, and Mia believe the CEO of StratCast orchestrated their parents’ murder twenty years ago to steal their father’s software program. And there’s only one way Riley can find some solid evidence…

Heir to the StratCast legacy, Ellie Stratton hires a new attorney to handle a delicate business matter—and she’s shocked by her attraction to him. Over the course of a few weeks, Riley becomes her lover, her friend, her everything. But when her life is threatened, Ellie discovers that Riley is more obsessed with settling an old score than in the love she thought they were building. And Riley must choose between a revenge he’s prepared for all his life and the woman he’s sure he can’t live without…

Review

Lexi Blake has created the perfect spin-off to the Masters and Mercenaries series.  She has put together a diverse blend of characters and made them family.

The Lawless children, (Drew, Riley, Bran and Mia) have had to endure more than one family should have to endure.  They deserve justice even in the form of revenge.  But revenge often has casualties. It’s then we learn whether or not the Lawless children can live with themselves in the end.

Ellie Stratton daughter of Phillip Stratton and business parter of Steven Castalano.  These two men and Patricia Cain were the orchestrators of the murders of Benedict and Iris Lawless.

Quote:  “The sins of the father were about to be visited on the daughter’s doorstep.  Ellie Stratton would have to pay her father’s debt.”

The plan was twenty years in the making and Riley will integrate his way into Ellie’s life.  But no matter how perfect the plan is not every contingency can be foreseen.   Like caring about the person you are about to destroy or the person you want to destroy having his own plan.

I loved Ellie the moment I read about her.  She is a truly good person, that wants nothing but the best for the people that work for her.  She has those rose colored glasses on and never takes them off.  My heart hurt thinking that she was the one that Riley had to use and eventually destroy, but I was also really torn because I felt for the family.  They already had their lives destroyed and they need justice in order to more on.  Does having a good reason excuse the family from intentionally hurting this woman?

The Lawless children were great compliments to each other.  First you have the ultra-serious Drew, who can only see revenge all the way to Bran who is the rock of the family.  Mia is the wild child, who was able to get Case to see how good she was for him.   And finally we have Riley, who is a little bit of all them.  He understands that he is going to put his family first and do what he has to do so they can all move on with their lives.

One of the things I really liked about this book was that we got to revisit Case and Mia.  Case was a voice of reason in this book, which he really wasn’t in Dominance Never Dies.  He and Mia are so good together.

In closing, I loved this book and can’t wait for the second addition to this series.

Colters’ Daughter (Colters’ Legacy #3)

By Maya Banks

51eK+PJTMGL._SY346_

Synopsis

He let her go once. This time he’s playing for keeps.

“Colters’ Legacy, Book 3”

Callie Colter once chased sunsets all over the world. Until Max. Together they were a perfect storm of desire, and she reveled in the beautiful power. Then he disappeared without a word, and the betrayal drove her home to lick her wounds.

Who knew he’d have the gall to show his face in her brother’s bar.

Max Wilder figures he deserves Callie’s right hook to the jaw, but it changes nothing. He had his reasons for pursuing her across Europe, for making her fall in love with him. But when she took everything he gave and offered “more, ” she changed all the rules. He had no choice leaving her, but he’s back. This time for the right reasons.

Callie is angry and hurt, yet powerless against Max’s relentless onslaught. He’ll settle for nothing less than her complete surrender-and her love. Only when she’s back in his arms will he be truly happy. And the damning truth can stay safely tucked away.

Except the truth has a way of creeping to the surface, and Max may just be out of second chances.

Warning: This title contains adult language, explicit sex, rough sex, anal sex. In other words…sex Also contains themes of D/s which might offend some readers. Lots of angst, emotion and betrayal. Second chances and lots of warm fuzzies.

Review

I knew Callie’s story would be a heart breaking journey but even I was surprised how passionate this beautiful Colter daughter was – how she truly thinks she is so different from her family – how she loves Callies Meadow – I get shivers went she mentions this – I can still recall her birth in that meadow in Colter’s Legacy Book 1.

Her love story with Max will show you passion, trust and then thoroughly heartbreaking moments.  I picked this up and could not put it down and I admit I was so angry with Seth as to the way Max’s secret was revealed – headstrong brother of hers!

Callie is so different from the rest of her family and I just felt so attached to her as a character and being the only daughter in her family.

I am about to pick up Colter’s Promise as I need to see how Max and Callie end up.

Colter’s Legacy what a wonderful series – so many beautiful characters that should strength, loyalty and family – just a beautiful romantic series.

Dirty Girl (Dirty Girl Duet # 1)

By Meghan March

BR Dirty Girl

Synopsis

Desperately seeking rich, famous, single guy with a giant cock to make my lying, cheating, should’ve-been-born-dickless ex-boyfriend realize what he’s just lost. 
Oh, and I give great head. Just sayin’.

No man in his right mind would answer that ad. 
Except thousands did. 

My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton’s playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.

Cue my look of shock when one of Hollywood’s hottest new bad boys, Cavanaugh Westman, comes knocking at my door and drops his pants to prove that he does indeed have a giant cock. 
What he doesn’t have is an explanation for why he disappeared from my life without a word three years ago, only to show up on the big screen two years later, killing bad guys in action flicks.

Now he wants me again.
What the hell do I do now?

Review

After reading the synopsis for DIRTY GIRL, it was quickly added to my TBR list.  It sounded like it was going to be a witty, funny, sexy and entertaining read, and while the story starts out that way, it quickly turns into something that’s just sex, sex and more sex with a smidgeon of a story thrown in.  While that might be perfect for some people, it was a disappointment for me.

I couldn’t connect with Greer, who throughout the entire story tries and fails to stand up for herself.  Her lack of strength was evident early on when she slept with Cav within minutes of seeing him for the first time since he left her abruptly, and without a word, three years beforehand.  As for Cav, well, it’s hard to like Cav, who thinks that being dominant means treating a woman like a child throwing a tantrum.  Thinking and saying things like “she’s begging to be taken in hand”, “she needs a keeper”, and “If your brother isn’t going to keep a leash on you to keep you safe, then I will.” doesn’t come across as dominant in my opinion, but rather controlling and demeaning.  I was also not a fan of him calling her a slut or that he turned everything into a threat of sexual punishment.  The dom and dirty talk felt cheesy and don’t even get me started on that anal sex scene.

DIRTY GIRL is told in dual POVs, is the beginning of a new series and ends in a cliffhanger.  It’s clear that Greer’s brother, Creighton, has had a series written about him before, and if you haven’t read his series you’ll feel like you’re out of the loop in a couple of scenes.  DIRTY GIRL is a novella so the story moves at a fairly quick pace, with some of the chapters being only a couple of pages long.  It also includes some flashback scenes which I felt weren’t worked into the story in a seamless way.  If you like stories that involve bullying men and an abundance of sex, then you’ll enjoy this one. Sadly, it wasn’t for me, and I was really looking forward to enjoying this one.

Burning Ultimatum (Trevor’s Harem # 4)

By Aubrey Parker

BR Burning Ultimatum

Synopsis

With Trevor’s contest at its end, it’d be easy to say we’re three against one. And yet I’ve never felt so alone. 

My heart is torn, twisted, ripped. I’m alternately hot and cold. I dream vivid dreams, no longer sure if they’re fantasy or reality. 

There’s a new player in the game. He’s tall, broad, beautiful, and intimidating. Everyone is afraid of him, even the company. I’m told he has a secret, and that I’m its subject. And someone else has a secret, too — from our mystery man, and god help us if he learns it. 

Everyone is loyal to something or someone in this place — though it’s seldom what it seems. 

I don’t know who’s with me and who’s against me — if I’ll go home with my new protector … or be kept here forever. 

I couldn’t possibly be what Eros has combed the world for … can I?

Review

BURNING ULTIMATUM is the final novella in a four-part serial that I read back to back.  I really wanted to like this series and I kept giving it the benefit of the doubt, but the only emotion I’m feeling two weeks after finishing it is frustrated.

Starting with BURNING OFFER, I didn’t understand what was going on but I was intrigued enough to continue with the series.  BURNING RIVALRY and BURNING CHOICE were similar, in that I still didn’t understand anything, but I was still intrigued even as I was getting frustrated.  I truly hoped that BURNING ULTIMATUM would explain everything.  That there’d be this lightbulb moment where suddenly everything from the first three books would make sense.  Either I missed a chapter or two that explained everything, or I’m just too stupid to understand, but I still don’t get what the point of this story was.  Right from the start I felt as though I was missing something, and that feeling never went away for me.

This entire series has amazing ratings and reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads, so obviously a lot of people are loving it, but unfortunately I just can’t give it the same love.  If you love books with hidden agendas, backstabbing, ulterior motives, mind games and corporate takeovers, this one will be right up your alley.
