Frostbitten

By Charlotte Stein

32471528

Synopsis

Shy nurse Cora both dreads and lives for the moments she sees Zeke, an orderly at the hospital where she works. Zeke is too handsome, too compelling, too much, and seems totally unaware of Cora. But before she can bring herself to his attention, an explosion rips through the hospital Christmas party.

Zeke has noticed Cora—in fact, he’s so irresistibly drawn to her that he saves her from the explosion by turning her into a vampire, much to the jealousy and resentment of his partner, Merrick. Zeke hates being a vampire, and now that she’ll live, doesn’t want Cora to suffer his fate. If they can both resist the overwhelming instinct to bond, joining their bodies as Cora draws her maker’s blood, she might be able to return to her normal human life.

As Merrick uses every erotic trick to keep Zeke distracted from the blood passion, Cora becomes more and more drawn to both of her reluctant captors. And more and more happy to abandon her old life in exchange for an eternity with two hot immortal lovers. All she has to do is convince Merrick and Zeke that being a vampire isn’t all that bad. 

Review

Frostbitten is told from Cora’s POV and can I say I really wanted some chapters from Zeke and Derricks POV as i truly believed that would have helped me connect to these two men.  I wanted to know how they truly felt especially Merricks tug of war with his beliefs on not being good enough or wanting to turn another human.

I really did struggle with this story, it wasn’t romantic enough for me and the menage felt rushed towards the end as part of tying up the story.  In saying that however I did feel Cora’s intense frustration and pain when she was going through the change period and the loneliness and inner thoughts were what kept me turning the pages.

Frostbitten  did not flow right for me and again I needed to know what these guys were thinking as one minute Zeke is trying to finish the turning of Cora and next thing Merrick can’t control himself and steps in.

So I am a little disappointed as the cover and synopsis had me thinking I was in for so hot and heavy vampire menage.

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.

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.

Colters’ Lady (Colters’ Legacy #2)

By Maya Banks

7789774-2

Synopsis

Can their love give her the strength to overcome the tragedy in her past?

Colters’ Legacy, Book 2

When police officer Seth Colter sees the delicate, shabbily dressed beauty in line at the soup kitchen where he’s serving, he’s gut shot over the idea of her being on the streets cold and alone. More baffling is the dark, possessive instinct that tells him she belongs to him.

For Lily Weston, home is a secluded nook in a back alley until Seth offers her a place to stay. She’s wary of his offer, but even one night out of the cold is too much temptation to resist.

Seth is convinced Lily is his. The problem is, when his brothers lay eyes on her, the same primitive instinct comes roaring to the surface. The Colters never imagined they’d follow the unconventional path of their fathers, but they can’t ignore their mutual need to offer Lily their protection and their love. But before Lily and the brothers can forge a future together, they must heal the deep wounds of her past.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, multiple partners, menage a quatre, violence.

Review

This was fast paced and began along a similar scene to Colters’ Woman (Book 1) and yes I loved both beginnings.

I fell hard for these three boys when I read about them growing up in Colters’ Woman so I was really looking forward to seeing their journey of whether they would follow in their fathers footsteps. All three men had indifvual careers and lifestyles and it was interesting to see how it played out.

Lily is just beautiful and I did not pick her emotional wound, I knew it centred about children but was still surprised when her emotional outburst revealed her true pain and loss. How her path crossed the boys, the way she like Holly in Book 1 enriched their mens lives and strengthened their own personalities and individual charactericstics was a really great journey.

Again we are not deprived of hot passionate sexual menage scenes but then also individual emotional sex scenes between Lily and the boys.

I am really enjoying this series – now onto Callie’s story in Book 3, Colters’ Daughter.

Colters’ Woman (Colters’ Legacy #1)

By Maya Banks

51XJ1oDMnpL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_

Synopsis

Holly Bardwell is running from her past mistakes. Straight into the arms of the Colter brothers.

Colters’ Legacy, Book 1

Adam, Ethan and Ryan aren’t looking for women. They’re looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They’re losing hope they’ll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin.

Adam knows she’s the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact—and protecting her from the danger of her past.

* This book has been re-edited and revised. Includes an expanded ending and a new, never-before published short story sequel.

Warning: This title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, ménage a quatre, violence.

 

Review

This is going to be another great series by Maya Banks that I am going to devour. Maya knows to give you action, suspense, romance, mystery, passion and great family relationships, it’s why I love her books.

Three dynamic men and one strong willed female make a wonderful story which I could not put down.  Love, laughter, trust and resilience is tested in their relationship.

The passionate sexual scenes are brilliant and I loved the menage but then I also relished the individual loving and passionate encounters which each man that Holly enjoyed.

Holly’s history gives the story it’s mystery and suspense elements and it provided the avenue for the three brothers to be all alpha and protect their woman.

The best part we see how their relationship progresses, meet children which sets up for the next book which I downloaded right after reading.  I am about to start reading Colters’ Lady (Colters’ Legacy #2) – so excited.

Sacrifice (Laid Bare # 4)

By S.R. Grey

BR Sacrifice

Synopsis

Lucien and Dahlia… A relationship that was never meant to be. Is that why it seems so destined to fail? 

Maybe. But Lucien doesn’t believe that’s the case. 

Still, with all the odds stacked against this unlikely couple, Lucien sees only one way out—sacrifice himself in order to save Dahlia. 

Will Lucien succeed in destroying himself? Can Dahlia stop him? Or, will their love prove strong enough to save them both? 

All the answers are revealed in Sacrifice: Laid Bare, the final installment in the Laid Bare series. 

Review

Lucien and Dahlia head to Canada in the hopes that Dunne⎯a being like Lucien⎯can help them break the hold Lucien’s parents have over him, but more importantly, can keep Dahlia safe.  Some sexy times ensue and Dahlia is made so powerful that she’s able to solve all their problems without any physical harm coming to anyone.

SACRIFICE is the final novella in the Laid Bare series and we finally find out exactly what Lucien is and what Dahlia becomes.  To be honest, I feel all kinds of stupid for not figuring it out for myself.  As with the previous novellas in this series, SACRIFICE is told in dual POVs and the story is very fast paced.  Overall, I enjoyed this series, but I think the entire series could have been better and more memorable if only it was slowed down and fleshed out a bit more.

By Zoey Derrick

Kyle Black, manager of 69 Bottles, has a secret. He and Addison are closer than she thinks, but telling her could keep her away. When Talon sets his sights on Addison, Kyle uses his secret to push her into Talon’s arms, only to discover she isn’t the only one he needs.

The perfect balance…or Addison’s ultimate undoing? 

Talon and Kyle push their boundaries and Addison’s, but can they throw their reservations to the wind and claim her together? 

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…

Review

I saw the amazing ratings CLAIMING ADDISON had on Amazon and Goodreads and thought I’d grab a copy.  Rockstars and threesomes with some M/M action thrown in?  Sounds like it could be a good read.  And it was good, up to a point.

My main issue with this story is Addison.  Don’t get me wrong, she’s a perfectly fine character.  However, this is a woman who, for the past several years, has been successfully working her way up the corporate ladder.  Her current assignment with 69 Bottles is an amazing opportunity, and if she can pull it off, it’ll be great for her career.  But in under 24 hours of her arrival, she’s allowing every member of the band to kiss and grope her before they go out on stage???  And then by day three or four she’s sleeping with two of them???  I find it hard to believe that a woman who was the ultimate professional would suddenly throw her professionalism out the window.  I also thought it was odd that her bosses know she’s sleeping with two members of the band, and they don’t care.

CLAIMING ADDISON is part of a series and is told in Addison’s, Talon’s and Kyle’s POVs.  The sex was hot and I liked the story well enough, even though I felt it moved a bit slowly.  While the book doesn’t really end on a cliffhanger, it does just end, because apparently this threesome’s story will be told over three books.  I assumed that each book would be a standalone, and I’m regretting that I didn’t research this series a little more before I started.  I just don’t think I have it in me to read about the same threesome over three books, not when I didn’t love the first book.

Reckless Rendezvous (Reckless Beat # 4.5)

By Eden Summers

BR Reckless Rendezvous

Synopsis

One kiss sends Leah Gorman’s life into a tailspin. 

After years sacrificing herself for Reckless Beat, Leah needs to catch her breath. She has to escape the constant chaos and revive her frayed nerves. There’s no better place than Vegas and the memory of a heavily-inked man with talented hands to make her heart palpitate for reasons other than stress. Logan is exactly what she needs right now… Or is he? Her pleasure comes at a price, and she will be left to question every aspect of her life and what her future holds. 

This novella starts straight after the events of Sultry Groove (Reckless Beat 4) and will lead you into the final book of the Reckless Beat series.

Review

If you’ve read the series, you know that Leah has had a thing for Ryan for years, but she’s never acted on it because he was married.  But in a moment of anger, he did, and it upset her deeply and sent her fleeing to Las Vegas and straight into the arms of Logan, the man she met when she got a certain “something” pierced.  She wants to forget about Ryan and thinks Logan will be perfect for the job.

Leah and Logan are great, and I think they could be really good together if her heart didn’t already belong to Ryan.  Leah’s honest and upfront and not too shy about asking for what she wants, except with Ryan.  Logan‘s cocky, dirty and funny, but he’s also a nice guy who seems to genuinely care for Leah.  You don’t see Ryan until the end where he breaks her heart by telling her he wants to try and be friends again.  RECKLESS RENDEZVOUS is a quick read that sets us up for Leah and Ryan’s story, which will be the final book in the Reckless Beat series.  You just know that their story is going to be explosive and I for one can’t wait to read it and see what is going on in Ryan’s head.

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. M/F/M/M, graphic language, consensual BDSM, spanking, HEA. There is ‘No’ touching or titillation between siblings.

My Review

Ok so I started this right after finishing Weekend Surrender being #1 of the series and did not think it could get better, well I was wrong.  Zoey’s story is so much more emotional than Rachel’s and the dynamic of the three brothers was so intense especially Tanner.

The relationship Zoey has with her Mother is another depth to this story and it broke my heart in so many ways.

I really loved how we also got to see Rachel and her men from Book 1 and then also again meet characters that will form Book 3, this series is really flowing well from each book but still giving us a new erotic adventure but enabling us to find out what other characters are doing.

I am really enjoying this series, the ménage scenes are one component of this romantic story but the characters have great depth and connections to each other which makes me as a reader so happy.

Weekend Surrender

by Lori King

weekend surrender

Synopsis

After another painful betrayal and break up, Rachael Morgan sets out to prove to herself that she can handle a good time with a man and walk away sexually satisfied and with her heart intact. She could have never imagined that she would be agreeing to the proposition of a lifetime. Every woman in Stone River, Texas would jump at this chance, but she’s afraid she’ll leave pieces of her heart behind.

Raised on their family ranch the four Brooks brothers have always shared everything. Even women. When they find themselves face to face with the one person who could complete them all, they set out on a journey to claim her for their own.

Fate can place them all in the right place at the right time, but will Rachel be able to overcome her relationship scars, or is she destined to live her life alone believing that no man ever stays?

(M/F/M/M/M Ménage, consensual BDSM, bondage, spanking, HEA, There is no touching or titillation between siblings.)

My Review

This was erotic, passionate and had great moments of humour. From the first chapter we  straight away meet these hot cowboys and immediately feel the physical attraction.  It did not feel rushed and I easily followed the characters long held small town connections and the four brothers were easily identified with their own personalities and sexual traits.

Now we are talking about four good looking cowboys and one girl who they have held secret attraction to and can I say my god the kitchen table scene – H.O.T.

I really enjoyed this story as now and then I move into Menage Romance for the whole escapism of intense passionate physical and emotional love.  We are also introduced to other characters who upon checking make up the next two books.  I am dying to read book 2 as I really loved Zoey who was Rachel’s friend.

Another point in this story was when Rachel needed to process and find herself after her Weekend Surrender, the feelings and emotions portrayed on the pages really helped me connect with the characters and follow their ultimate HEA and really appreciated a snapshot of how they were going later on.

Great Menage Romance that will definitely make you all hot and bothered.
