#Review #Rockers Fatal Temptations (Fatal Cross Live! Book 2) by Theresa Hissong

My life has meaning again. I’m clean and sober, no longer relying on the poison to keep me going night after night as I perform for thousands. I have everything that I’d dreamed about for years; an amazing band, number one songs, money, and great friends. But there was one thing missing…a woman to call my own.

Presley Pittman is the lead singer for Witch’s Spawn and the opening band on our current tour. I find myself intrigued by the beautiful woman and whatever it is that haunts her. There is something mysterious about her that I can’t put my finger on. It isn’t until I notice a scar on her lip that I ask her about her past. I don’t think I could have ever prepared myself for the pain of her confessions.

She has to grow to be able to live and I’m thankful that she lets me be the man to walk beside her on the road to finding herself. When a possible setback in my own life threatens to restore my demons, I have to make the decision to stay strong so that I can be the man that Presley needs, because her own demons aren’t too far behind…threatening to destroy everything she’s ever known about her past.

 

What can I say about Ace and Presley? They are AWESOME! Presley has dealt with a lot of crap in her life and Ace has himself where he wants to be, clean and sober. Seeing his band Mate Taylor find love shows that that it can happen. Ace has been drawn to Presley since she and her band started the tour with them.
Presley has major trust issues outside of her band mates, which is totally understandable, but there is something about Ace that makes her want to add him to her trust circle and be with him.
The way these two connect is awesome, she has become the only addiction that he needs and he has become her rock, her safe port in the storm.
I love when Hissong writes any of her rocker books, she has a way of making you feel like you are there on the road with them.
I can’t wait to read more of the band!!

#Review #Rockers Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! Book 1) by Theresa Hissong

For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.
One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.
When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

Cora Maddox is tour manager and roadie extraordinaire for her cousin’s band Glory Days and has been since she was a kid.
She is tiny but mighty and no one knows how to get shit done for a band better than her. Her only problem now is Taylor Vaughn, guitarist for Fatal Cross Live. The little island fling they had while she was on vacation showed her how much she really liked him, but when she tried to contact him for months afterwards he wouldn’t take or return her calls and that showed her that he really was just looking for someone to warm his bed.
Taylor Vaughn, didn’t have a rough childhood his problems started when he and his band fell face first into the sex, drugs, and rock and roll life style. Yes, he was a man whore but something about little Coraline Maddox set him on fire. He knows he screwed the pooch when he never returned her calls but he had to get clean, be better so that when he next came to her he could beg his forgiveness and he could be the man she needed.
Now that they have to be together, because he’s filling in for Glory Day’s guitarist, she doesn’t know how she is going to face him but she knows that she isn’t going to let him know how bad he hurt her.
Man, Hissong is great at writing a rock story she really makes you feel like you are there. How she wrote about Taylor’s addiction problems and how he struggled to get clean and stay clean was awesome.
You can tell that Cora and Taylor feel for each other, even after the shit that they’ve been through. When they need each other the most though will they be able to stand strong or will they crash and burn? I’ll never tell!!!! Lol!!!
Check out Taylor, Cora, and the rest of the Fatal Desire crew to find out.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Can you say SPIN OFF??!!!! Lone Wolf Defenders is a spin off of Alicia Montgomery’s Fated Mates series. We met Killian in the last book of the Fated Mate series Tempted by The Wolf. Killian one of three adopted brothers of Meredith from that book.
This series is about all the brothers and Killian being the first.
Killian is a lone wolf, a wolf with no family but his adopted family, no clan of his own. For those of you who don’t know Killian, his brothers, and Meredith were raised by a human who taught them skills to do several things, security, espionage, surveillance, protection, and if need be theft.
He and his brothers now work for Sebastian Creed and are running a branch of security called what else “Lone Wolf Security” and he and his brothers are being allowed to in New York because of this and because their sister is pledged to the New York Alpha.
Now that the scene is set, lets get down to business!!
4 months before his adopted father died Killian was on a job to steal back a lost tapestry for a country that was once war torn. While doing this job he met Luna. While originally he was just using her for the job he grew to really like her.
Things happened ( No I’m not telling you what, you gotta read the book!) and they were torn apart.
Now they are once again in the same city and a chance meeting has them together again.
Luna hates Killian after the way things happened between them, she also is still in love with him though she doesn’t what to be, and now she needs him to keep her safe. Killian has put Luna out of his mind but not out off his heart.
There are so many ups and downs in this book. Montgomery does a great job of keeping a reader on their toes!!!
These Lone Wolves could totally be alphas, that is how strong a lone wolf is.
Killian he has Luna best interest at heart, but totally thinks his way is the only way to get things done and she has no problem telling him how wrong he is.
After things are totally cleared up will they stay with each other? I’m not telling…………..
I will say this though, this new series is gonna be a good one these brothers are super yummy and and strong as heck.

#ThrowBack #Review #Paranormal #Shifter Big Bad Bite (Big Bad Bite Book 1) by Jessie Lane

The first book in the best-selling Big Bad Bite Series!

What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?

Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community. It’s important she hide her true nature from both humans and Others.

Right after moving to a new city, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. He’s an alpha werewolf determined to do two things: figure out exactly what Jenna is and have her all to himself.

As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world—the Other world.

Contains mature themes.

Ok, let me start off with I’ve never read any of Lane’s paranormal work before, just her military and MC, but I loved this! This series doesn’t just have shifters in it, but demons, vampires, and witches too. One Bad Bite is the first book in the Series of the same name. In this book we meet Jenna O’Conner, kickass new member of Wilmington’s SWAT team. With Jenna it’s a case of “looks can be deceiving” because her petite frame hides what’s really inside. She is a shifter, but no one outside of her mother and two uncles know, she’s been made to hide all her life because she is a hybrid and been told that the community of Others finding out would be a death sentence.
Jenna is written just like I like my heroines, tough! She is a girl who knows and goes after what she wants, which is a life. She knows she wants to be in law enforcement and does it, by assuring her mom and uncle that she will keep hidden. On Jenna’s first day she is sent out with her unit to handle a hostage situation, this is where she meets her partner Kent. At the situation she meets, Adam McPhee. Adam, hot, redheaded, motorcycle drivin’ Alpha wolf of North Carolina.
When Jenna finds out that Kent is a Demon, while they’re out after their shift and she takes off. She has been warned after all that any Other that finds out about her isn’t good. When she runs out of the bar who’s there? Adam, that’s who!! Kent tries to talk to her and tell her it’s ok, but she still runs and Adam chases. It’s during the chase that Adam discovers that she is a wolf!! This story has it all wolves, tigers, demons. Of course some of them are bad and the bad ones aren’t just bad; in my mind, they’re evil.
Adam and Jenna must work together, with her long lost family, to save another pack master. Along the way Jenna finds out not every Other wants hybrids dead. Adam finds out Jenna is no ordinary human-wolf hybrid, but a demon-wolf hybrid the only one on Earth. Together they find the piece that’s been missing in their life, each other.

#NewRelease #Review #Menage Tempted by Ecstasy (Calypso’s Choice Book 2) by Dakota Trace

Calypso’s agenda continues when a lovely widow contacts her…

Michelle Cross, or Shelli as her friends call her, is stuck in a rut. With all her kids off at college, this widowed mother splits her time between her charities, and lusting after men – well two men specifically: her late husband’s best friend, James, and her much younger gardener, Doyle. Desperate to resist temptation, she turns to an online dating, but fails horribly. It’s not until James suggests Club Ecstasy, that she decides to try one more time to exorcise the sexy pair from her every fantasy. Besides what could be better than Christmas in West Caicos?

 

After making his fortune in the dot-com era, reclusive boy-genuis, Doyle Garcia took up gardening and found his new calling. He loves to get his hands dirty, and the icing on his Tia Roselina’s cake? It also allows him to tempt the luscious Widow Cross into his bed. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one with eyes for her. While he’d been known to share fishing holes with James Redding, could he also share the luscious widow with his friend? Only time will tell when James approaches him with a plan to seduce Shelli – all it will take is a couple first class trips to Club Ecstasy, and keeping his hands off James. The first will be easy? But the second, not so much – because if he finds Shelli attractive, James is temptation incarnate. Too bad he doesn’t realize he’s about to get a little help from a goddess who swears that there are no lines when it comes to no holds barred sex and love.

Looking for a hot ménage book? Well look no further. Just make sure you have a towel ready to wipe the drool. LOL!!
This is the second book in the Club Ecstasy series book is about a different triad.
Club Ecstasy is a island getaway where Ms. Calypso makes fantasies of three way come true.
Shellie is secretly panting after her hot as heck lawn boy and her friend tells her she needs to get away if she isn’t going to go for it.
Little does she know that her lawn boy Doyle is panting after her just as hard and with James, the man she has leaned on since the death of her husband and her son’s godfather. Not only do the guys want Shellie but they want each other too!!!
Trace does a great job at bringing the hotness with this story as well as angst. There’s also the fact that Doyle and James got hooked up with Shellie at the Club with the help of her friend. They want a forever deal while she is determined that after they leave the club the triad ends.
Will Shellie be able to let go and be with both of them? Will the guys be able to tell each other how they feel about the other?
What happens is a story of a triad finding their way and trying to make a real go after the heat of vacation ends.

Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Dakota, an author of erotic romance (think 50 Shades of Gray – but better) and paranormal erotica. And what exactly does that mean? Well, since I’ve always marched to the beat of different drum: it means that I get to take my unique life experiences – like putting around in the garage with my dad, or driving a train when I was ten, to create worlds where the heroines aren’t necessarily June Clever, but are strong independent women who may stand on their own two feet, but long to submit to the right man. Whether it’s two friends who realize there is more than friendship between them or the sexy alien who captures his unwilling slave’s heart, sparks fly between them. My imagination has no bounds or at least none I’ve found yet!

#ThrowBack #Contempary Passion Restored (Gallagher Brothers 2) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the one brother who thinks he can handle it all and the one woman who could change that.

Owen Gallagher likes everything in its place and is organized to a fault. While his brothers have each dealt with their own personal tragedies and stresses, Owen figures he’s had it pretty easy. That is until his perfectly ordered world is rocked at its foundation and he’s forced to rely on others. Now, he must heal his body and his soul while trying to ignore his delectable and utterly off-limits neighbor.

Liz McKinley is stressed out, exhausted, and not in the mood for a bearded and growly man in her ER. When she patches him up to the best of his ability, she’s prepared to push him firmly from her thoughts. Of course, that would be easier if she and her best friend hadn’t bought the house next to his. Now their paths seem to cross daily, and she is finding it harder and harder to say no to the injured and angry man next door. But she’s been scarred one too many times in her life, and even though this Gallagher looks good enough to eat, she knows that sometimes, sating that craving is the worst thing she can do.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

This is the second book in the spin-off of Montgomery Ink about the Gallagher Brothers.
Owen Gallagher- the organizer hottie of the Gallagher Brothers. He likes list, planners, order, and a fine woman.
Liz McKinley – overworked RN, brand new home owner, and wants nothing to do with men.
A chance meeting at a bar can change so many things.
The two meet with a hello and never think anymore about it. When Owen ends up in her hospital ER Liz wants nothing more than to help him get treated and move on, because once the hospital gossip knows that she knows him, it doesn’t matter how or that they briefly just met that evening, it’s fodder for the mill.
After Owen’s brother Graham and wife finally let him go back his house after him staying with them, all he wants to do is sleep in his own bed with his own pillow.
When his younger brother sees who his new neighbors are though, resting can wait because its none other than Liz and her best friend.
Fate keeps throwing these two together and I love it. While they both love their list and plans, they each have something that the other needs. He can show her that someone who truly loves you stays. She can show him that list and plans are great, but so is living in the moment.
As scared as it makes her Liz just can’t stay away from him. He makes her feel so much and when she feels too much and runs, he always gives her time to clear her head and then he gets back in there where he belongs.
Owen falls for her quickly and though he is busy with trying to get a big bid for the company, he always puts her first even when her running kills him.
Ryan once again does a great job writing about someone who has had a past trauma and learns to truly live when they feel safe and loved.
Gallagher’s are four brothers that would do anything for each other, we’ve seen that in Graham’s book Love Restored and in Jake’s book Ink Enduring. We see it again in Owen’s book when they help him show Liz what a family really is.
I can not wait to read Murphy’s book next, i think it well be a tear jerker.

#NonFiction #Review You Desrve a Drink; Boozy Misadventures and Tales of Debauchery by Mamrie Hart

The riotously funny debut from the drinking star with a YouTube problem.

Since launching her YouTube channel “You Deserve a Drink” in 2011, comedian Mamrie Hart has built an intensely devoted following of more than half a million viewers. Like her bawdy and bacchanalian show, Hart’s eponymous debut pays tribute to her boozy misadventures with an original cocktail recipe accompanying each hilarious tale. From the “Leaves of Three Martini,” commemorating the hookup to whom she accidentally gave poison ivy, to the “Bizzargarita,” in honor of the time she and a friend were approached by two uber-Republican couples who wanted to “swing” while on vacation in Mexico, You Deserve a Drink is as useful as it is entertaining.

So Non-Fiction is not at all in my wheelhouse, but when your hubby gets you a book from a person you have watched on tv and said how much you like her, you give it a chance.
Mamrie Hart is a woman who has a show on YouTube called You Deserve A Drink. She comes up with a topic or person to discuss, a drink to go with it, and shows you how to make it. For Example, on one episode she made a drink called A Donut F**k With Me Martini and proceeded to talk about National Donut day. I laughed my booty off the whole time I watched.
Ok, now that you know a little about Mamrie let me tell you about her book.
It’s filled with stories from her childhood, college days, well from her life. Not the sweet sentimental stories, stories that will make you laugh out loud so hard while you’re reading it while in the salon that people stare at you and think somethings wrong!!
One chapter had me laughing so hard, my ten yr old daughter started laughing at me!!!
She is funny, likes to drink, tells you like it is, and is totally owns her shit!! If I was younger and was anywhere near her, I’d try to get myself a spot on her squad.
I have to say the hubby did good picking out this book, for a non-fiction it rocked!! If you don’t know who Mamrie Hart is look her up on YouTube. Also, each chapter starts off with a drink recipe and she tells you about a built in drinking game in the Foreword!!
Loved this book, check it out!!

#NewRelease #Review Dropout (Bad Boy Homecoming #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Grayson Cleary left town before graduation day and never looked back. Most people back home pegged him as a dropout. Over time, he’s worked to make something of his life and leave his past behind, so when his ten-year reunion comes up, he has no intention of attending. When his best friend begs him to go, Grayson finds himself confronted with a past he’d rather forget and the one woman he’s always craved.

Kate St. Dalton had everything when she left her hometown. Not only was she Valedictorian with a full scholarship, but she was also engaged to the boy of her dreams. Then, life threw a wrench in her plans, and she had to find a way to live the new life fate handed her. The last thing she needs is the hot boy from high school returning to town as the sexy man of her dreams.

When the two take a chance and use the reunion week to burn up the sheets, they’ll have to remember that it’s only for a few nights—not for a lifetime. And decide if what they have is just a fling…or something far more than a mere reunion.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

This series of Bad Boy Homecoming books are set of 5 books all wrote by different authors. Though they are all set at the same time and place they do not have to be read together.

Everybody has something about their high school years that they either wish that they had done or regret that they did do. Whether it’s asking a person out, realizing that as a kid you weren’t the nicest person, or that you didn’t really see the world around you. Whatever it was, just remember that could be the thing that set you one the path of who you are today and would you change that person?
Grayson Clearly was the bad boy, the high school drop out. He really didn’t want to leave the home he made for himself in
Denver to go back to the small town Texas for his high school reunion, his best friend makes him.
Kate St. Dalton was the class Valedictorian, had a full scholarship, and was engaged to her high school sweetheart.
A lot can change in 10 years and you can kind out all kinds of things about people that you thought you knew.
Grayson is a hunky, bearded, tattooed man. Please wait while I wipe the drool!! Lol!! He is a very strong man and I’m not just talking muscles here, but he has those too!!! In high school he had a crush on Kate and seeing her again after all this time just reminds him of that.
Kate is definitely not the girl she was in school. She’s had to move back to her home town and live with a lot of the town, her parents included, looking at her with disappointment that she didn’t live up to her potential.
So, the feelings come fast between these two, I mean they haven’t seen each other in 10 years and never really knew each other beyond what you see in school, and yet it works. They learn things about each other they never knew, things that shaped them into the person they are today.
In learning those things they realize that if Grayson had acted on that crush in high school, they might not be these adults and might not stand a chance, so the time wasn’t right. Now though, now the time is perfect and though it’s fast it is exactly what the two need.
Ryan has wrote another great couple. Grayson and Kate are two kids that grew to be the adults that other needed to be complete.
This is one reunion that I am not missing if all the stories are this good!!!

#WOTR #Paranormal #ThrowBack Slade (The Protectors 6) by Teresa Gabelman

Highly trained VC Warrior, Dr. Slade Buchanan’s, role between lifesaver and lifetaker has been a constant battle, but nothing prepared him for half-breed VC Warrior trainee, Jill Nichols. Slade realizes his struggles from the past were nothing compared to the difficulty of resisting the woman who could never belong to a man like him.

Being the only female VC Warrior recruit, Jill Nichols, has an uphill battle. Falling for the sexy doctor, Slade Buchanan, has not made the battle any easier, especially when he constantly reminds her and others there will never be anything between them. Working harder than any male recruit, obstacles are thrown in her path, and with each challenge, it becomes clear that the two things she wants most may never be.

So, I personally have been waiting for Slade’s book since he was introduced in book three and he was well with the wait! For those of you who are joining the Warriors for the first time let me tell you a little something about Slade.
Slade Buchanan is a doctor, VC Warrior and all around MAJOR HOTTIE!! Jill Nichols is a half breed in training to be a warrior, is the only female in the program, and isn’t afraid to kick a little of male ass to prove that she deserves to be there.
Slade and Jill have been circling each other for a while, Jill is so sure that she is not good enough for him and he is sure that she is too innocent for him.
The training for Jill and the other half-breeds is in full force because the test to be warrior is soon and guess who is one of Jill’s trainers? Slade!! Jax, the other of their trainers, thinks she’s a liability and shouldn’t be there while Slade knows she can do it, but is trying not to show how much she’s getting to him.
This book is full of laughs when Jill out shoots the guys in one scene and has to be taught, by the mates of the other Warriors, how the pole dance for an undercover op in another.
Jill shows what a strong female she is by taking the hide road when she goes to check on her father, since she was put out after being turned. Slade stands by her even when he wants to be strong for her when she’s hurting.
Teresa keeps the story down to earth with Jill learning to drive, but she keeps it hot with Slade being the one that helps her!! Let’s face it, any scene with Slade is hot!!
There’s lots that I could tell you about this story like, you’ll need tissues, you’ll laugh your ass off, and there’s lots I’m leaving out but, when in comes down to it, this is not a story of how the hot doctor gets the girl, this is the story of how a strong, kickass, woman of power, who doesn’t know just how strong she is, gets the man of her fantasies.
Teresa Gableman does a great job with her characters and let’s them tell their own story I feel, and in doing so she always leaves me waiting on pins and needles wanting more!!

#ReleaseBlitz #Review #Contemporary More Than Need You (More Than Words 2) by Shayla Black

Release Date: June 13, 2017

Designer: Rachel Connolly

Photographer: Sara Eirew

Add To GoodReads Here

I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

This book is the second in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.

This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)

Griffin Reed is Maxon Reed’s estranged brother. 3 years ago he believed his brother and the woman that he loved lied and kept him in the dark, his hurt ego caused him to shove them both away and to do a bad thing. It took years for him to realize what he did and why but now he wants them both back.
More Than Need You doesn’t pick up right where More Than Want You ended, but about a couple of weeks before.
Britta Stone loved Griffin with everything she had, he was her first in all ways and when he shoved her away he crushed her.
When she finally is moving on with her life, Griffin comes roaring back claiming that he didn’t know about their son and that he still loves her.
Man, Black wrote a good one here. Griffin trying to prove that he does in fact want to be the man that Britta need, even though she already is engaged, shows that he knows what he did all though years ago was beyond stupid. Britta still loves him and she fights so hard against it and its no wonder with how badly he hurt her, should she believe that he is changed and give him another chance or should she stand continue to guard her heart and marry a man she doesn’t love just because she knows he’s a safe bet.
Seeing Griff try to get her back is awesome, but seeing him be a father? That right there is panty melting!!!
Yes Griff did something stupid, but when he explains why he has such a hard time trusting the good in things you can see that it was bound to happen at some point, it just happened with his brother and Britta and it ended up hurting him too.
Also, seeing him get his brother back and to be working with him, shows that family is everything and you really need to talk before you do something stupid when you jump to conclusions.
I can’t wait to see what happens with Griffin and Maxon’s sister in the next book, if she’s anything like her brother’s it’s gonna be good.
