Captivating Nights

By Anise Storm

31625141-_sx120_

Synopsis

With New Year’s Eve and her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, best-selling author Calista Grant has a hard time envisioning actually doing something for herself. At the urging of her closest friends, she books herself a once in lifetime vacation, trading the chaos of Boston for the serene tranquility of the Caribbean. Once in paradise, she makes the decision to drop her guard and finally let loose.

Enter two bachelors, with demons of their own to vanquish. Zane Rhodes, a successful architect, is on a path of self-destruction after a tragic loss. In denial regarding his own issues, resort owner, Xavier Rivera, invites his best friend to spend the holiday with him in paradise. Once there, they both meet Calista and are immediately captivated.

Used to sharing everything, including women, they set out to seduce the innocent brunette and fulfill her deepest fantasies. Neither is prepared for what happens next, though, as the two Dominants find themselves not only battling each other, but their own demons as well. Will they be able to save their friendship before the reality of the three ends the fantasy forever?

Review

Captivating Nights has made me want to be a Y to my very own X & Z.  I want what Cali was given by X & Z – she was cherished, devoured and pushed to her limits.

The three main characters all had something that the other needed in order to repair and take a plunge with their hearts.  I cannot believe how much emotional baggage these characters had but it just gave them all such depth and I loved watching them all figure it out.

Cali immediately had me within the first few chapters and then X & Z – can two guys be any more dominant, possessive and selfless in the way they brought Cali to her knees.

X & Z both had such strong individual traits and then Cali comes along and it was like a three piece puzzle was solved with one night of passion.  I enjoyed watching as they kept putting that puzzle back together each night at the resort and each time it was harder for them to break apart in the morning.

I am glad the author did not go too dramatic with Cali’s diving adventure, the way she entwined that into the story for Zane to have his moment on enlightenment was perfect.

Tears in my eyes with the ending and Captivating Nights is going to my menage shelf to pick up again.

Always Wanting

By Alex Grayson

32588261

Synopsis

My name is Abigail Summers, and I’m addicted to sex. Yes, you read right. I’m a woman that craves… no, needs to have a man take my body on a daily basis. If I don’t have sex at least once a day, my body shakes from withdrawals, my stomach cramps with unbearable pain, my sexually hazed mind goes haywire, and I become extremely irritable and a major bitch. This isn’t a lifestyle I’ve chosen for myself. It’s a struggle I deal with every single day.

I don’t do relationships, because what man wants to be stuck knowing his girl may be out f*cking some random guy if he’s not available? You may think this is something that I can control, but I say screw you; you’ve never been in my shoes before.

The cravings may be something I can’t control, but I’ve learned to embrace them. I’ve tried the sexual addiction support groups. I’ve tried curbing my appetites. I’ve been shunned, criticized, ridiculed, and called every nasty name under the sun. Well, I say f*ck all you judgmental assholes. I’ll have sex with who I want, when I want, where I want. Embarrassment? That’s a thing of the past. This is my life now, and those that don’t like it can go straight to hell.

But then he came along and screwed everything up. Colt Maverick. For once in my life, I want more, crave more from one guy. A guy that’s sweet and doesn’t match my hard interior. A guy that looks at me like he wants to eat me alive and claim me as his own. A guy that will most definitely not be okay with my addiction. A guy that I want over and over again, not because my body demands it, but because I demand it.

I now have a new addiction. But will he be enough to satisfy my uncontrollable desires?

Review

Always Wanting is my second book by this author and again she has this ability to suck me in within the first few chapters.  I cannot explain how this author can make me form such intense emotional connections to her leading ladies.  I cannot believe I have read a book about a stalker and a sex addict and loved them both, the author has a way of not defining the characters but enabling them to evolve and you want them to find their happiness.

Colt Maverick, so glad he got his story as I loved him in Endless Obsession and I was happy to get to also read about Poppy and Asher and hear a little of how they have progressed.

Abigail was such an interesting character and her affliction and emotional trauma had me glued to the pages and in awe of her strength and determination.  Some of the scenes in this book are heart breaking and had me feeling such sadness for her pain and pure desperation.

One of the best parts of this story was her group of three friends and can I say that I fell in love with Nathan and his loyalty and love for Abigail.  Just putting it out there that I would love a story for Nathan because he deserves it.

Always Wanting ended perfectly for me and I was so happy that Abigail although not healed is repaired and given a chance at love and happiness.

Love the Cover, was perfect for Colt.

Quote: I still get the sense that she’s waiting for the other shoe to drop between us.  I’m not going to let it happen.  I’ll superglue those fuckers to our feet if I have to.

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.
