#WOTR2018Attending #Review #ABrettMacleanDuet #BDSM Red by JM Walker

It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.
Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.
No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.

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

We are back with Brett and Evie from JM Walker’s Torn Series.  Years of marriage, three kids, and these two are still hot as heck together!!  Oh, and we get top see our very favorite sadist therapist!!!!

The past has come back in a big way to possibly screw up the life that they have built and let me just say that I felt just about all the feels with this one.

With all they went through in the previous stories to get and stay together I really thought that Walker was going to end this couple, I   mean how much more can two people take, and the ending?? Omg, please make sure you have tissues handy for that because you will need them and a strong drink when your done.

Walker has done a freaking mind f*** with this one so hold onto your hats  ladies and gents its going to be a bumpy ride.

Oh, and afterwards there is the story of Brett and Evie meeting for the first time, but told from his POV.  It’s awesome!!

#Review – Power Player by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

Power Player: Anti-Hero Game: Power Chain Book Two

Rules will not be broken.

Especially by her.
She was a strong woman.
It turned me on.
She became my personal challenge. It made me hard.
The more she hated me, the more I relished it.
I’m determined to break her down.
I am Paxton Williams. I’m a power player in an underworld game only few people know exist.
She knew the rules.
She knew the consequences.
She should know I’m not the man to let anyone get away…Including her.

Authors Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele team up to push beyond the boundaries, crossing a line into a deep, dangerous, and forbidden world. One where no one escapes, even if they beg to.

This is the Power Chain Series – a four book series of interconnected stand-alone romances.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

I am enjoying this series. It is a new concept that is intriguing to me. Bad boys and feisty women.

Laurel Conrad and Paxton Williams have a volatile relationship. After seeing Laurel bust in to a room putting a gun to Paxton you know this is gonna be a good one.  Laurel and Paxton were friends a kids and Laurel gave him her heart. But when he ran because he thought she deserved better he crushed her. Now is the time for Paxton to take what is his.

Laurel has a fire like no one else. She will not back down or give in. however, no matter how strong willed Laurel is Paxton knows her too well and cannot one-up him. I absolutely love her spunk and tenacity it keeps Paxton on his toes. He has to in this game of chess he is playing. I loved seeing the things Paxton did for Laurel. Yes, he did kidnap her but the cabin and all the thought that went into it made my heart flutter.

Not only do I love the guys of this series but the women are pretty awesome too.  Ellen Sue is amazing her loyalty to the guys is like no other. I enjoyed getting to know more of her and see more of her personality. I have to say Onyx and Paxton knew what they wanted and they took it literally. I have to say I didn’t like them in the beginning of either book but by the end they grew on me and I loved them. I cannot wait to see what Dane and Garrett hold in store for us. I am sure it will be good.

#NewRelease – Promise Me by Reana Malori

Promise Me

Reana Malori

Contemporary Interracial Romance

Blurb

Falling in love is easy.

Staying in love is the hard part.

One day is all they need, to remember why they fell in love.

From the outside looking in, Brandon and Monique Rivera were the perfect love

story. College sweethearts who’d fallen for each other at first sight, they’d been

inseparable from the first day they laid eyes on each other. They were the couple

everyone looked to as the gold-standard and they’re love held strong, even in

the face of family conflicts and long-held beliefs.

After years of loving each other and building a family, the cracks are starting to

show in the once perfect relationship. The reality of life, raising two kids, and

long hours at work, was an ongoing challenge to their marriage. When the nights

are long, and the days filled with chaos, Brandon and Monique must stay

focused on each other, their lives, and their love.

Excerpt

He’d fought tooth and nail over the years to convince her father that being with Monique was not some fetish or phase that he was going through. When he’d met her in college, she’d been a junior and he a senior. He’d known within the first ten minutes of meeting her on the quad, that she was the woman he would marry someday. Of that he was sure. Convincing her of that fact took much more time and effort. She was worth every second of every moment he’d gone after her. Flowers. Dinners. Playlists with all the best sappy love songs. Hell, he was willing to do anything just to get her to smile in his direction.

Shaking his head at the twists and turns their lives had taken, he smiled at the memory of some of the hoops he had to jump through to finally make her his. He spent more time and energy convincing her to give him a chance than he had on his classwork.

Laughing under his breath at how desperate he’d been at the time, he was glad he’d been able to woo her with his charm and wit within a few weeks. Otherwise, he would have failed out of school. Which wouldn’t have helped him one bit, especially with her parents. When she’d finally decided to give him a chance, it had been the best day of his life.

#ReleaseDay – One More Night by Jenika Snow

 

 

 

 

When my sister passed away I adopted her daughter, Dolly, and raised her as my own. We were all we had left in this world and I was going to try my hardest to make sure she never wanted for anything.

That’s why I needed someone I trusted to watch over the most important person in my life. Being a businessman meant I was out of the house a good portion of the day, a necessary evil to provide for Dolly. A live-in nanny would ensure Dolly got the best care possible when I wasn’t with her.

And when I saw Emma for the first time I didn’t just see a caretaker for Dolly. I saw a woman who had every caveman instinct in me rising up like a primal beast. I felt possession and need for Emma the likes of which I’d never experienced before.

I didn’t just want a nanny anymore, I wanted Emma … all of her.
She might think this was just another job, but before our time was up Emma would realize she was mine and I wasn’t letting her go.

 



Warning: Guys, this book is going to give you whiplash for how insta-crazy it is. Talk about a hero who can’t keep his hands off his woman! This may look like a sugary sweet read—and it is—but make no mistake: it’s filthy as hell. We have one alpha hero who instantly falls for the heroine and won’t let her go. Maybe a little obsessive, but hey, that’s what we like.

His other hand pressed against my lower back and I gasped from the searing heat of that lone touch. When he pulled me closer, I groaned, his erection pressed against my belly. We were both frantic with need then, unable to stop what was about to happen.
“This is going to happen,” he said harshly and I could only nod in agreement.
“It’s crazy fast.”
He grunted. “It’s fucking perfect.”
When he broke the kiss to remove my clothes, I didn’t stop him. Once the material was gone our mouths were latched back together. Eyes closed, body lost in feeling, I brought my hands to the front of his slacks and fumbled with the button. I needed him naked, needed him to be pressed up against me in all his hard, powerful maleness.
His erection pressed demandingly against his slacks and all I could think about was what it would feel like to have him inside of me. He kissed me with so much demand I was helpless. Never removing his lips from mine, I was vaguely aware of the sound of his zipper being brought down. And then I felt the scorching-hot length of him press against my belly.
A moan ripped from me.
I had my hands on his shoulders, my nails digging into his body. I needed him impossibly closer. My bra still covered my breasts and I wanted the offending fabric gone. I wanted to feel his skin against mine.
“I need you naked,” I whispered, and pushed his shirt up almost frantically. The air left me when I glanced down at his hard chest. Tattoos covered his golden, muscular flesh.
“I need to have every part of your body on display so I can fucking own it.”
A shiver worked its way over me after he said those deliciously dark words.
I lowered my gaze down to his hard cock and swallowed. He was hung like a fucking monster. Before I could drag my gaze from the sight of his stiff dick, he had his hands pressed right below my ass and was lifting me. He held me for long seconds as he fucked my mouth. And there were no other words to describe exactly what he was doing.

Three hearts. Two worlds. No limits.

Tyran Varosa and Braxon Torr are on a mission. Find an inhabitable planet. Start

Phaedra Kari has been called a lot of things in her life: trouble, cyber-jockey,

lunatic, hacker, but never someone’s mate – not until an alien prince and his best

friend arrive at the Drift. She’s got plans of her own, and they don’t include

mating anyone, not even a pair of gorgeous aliens whose every touch tempts her

to say yes.

When corporate backstabbing progresses to real-life murder, these three will

need to come together to ensure the survival of their plans, their friends, and

each other.

Excerpt

The crowd suddenly hushed and she stopped talking to focus on the scene unfolding

in front of her. The door to the newly arrived ship had opened, and a hot as hell male

walked through it. At first glance, he appeared almost human, with short, black hair and

a neatly trimmed beard. His skin was a shimmering silver, though, and he was taller

than most of the humans and Pheran present. Another male followed after the first, and

she had to bite her lip not to sigh in appreciation. The second male was a little taller and

broader than the first, and his skin had a golden sheen to it. His hair was long enough to

be tied back, but his beard was as closely cropped as his silver companions.

“They don’t look much like aliens.”

Zale grunted. “Maybe not to you.”

That was the moment both males unfurled their wings. Holy fraxx. They had wings! “I

take it back. Wings are definitely alien.”

#WOTR #Review – Chasing Dove (Branches of Emerys book 4) by Brandy L. Rivers

Secrets buried in the past will guide the way.

After solving the riddles of her father’s journal, Jacinda has finally found what she was looking for—and something she didn’t expect—love. With nightmares plaguing her, she runs away to protect the man who claimed her heart.

Unable to let her go, Chatan follows Jacinda, determined to prove she needs help. And not just his. She has more family than she believes, and they have the means and willingness to help stop Thanatos.

Chatan has to convince her running isn’t the answer while uncovering the deep secrets of the relics she’s found, and how she can use them to stop Thanatos.

To finally free her from the past, they will have to discover dark pieces of their families’ history. Their destiny is entwined with a prophecy, an ancient war, and each other. What side will they choose?

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Chasing Dove picks up from the end of Finding Hawk. Jacinda has a terrifying nightmare that has her running from the man she loves to try to and save her mother.

Chatan refuses to loose Jacinda so he follows her the best way he knows how. He has to find a way for her to see there are others out there that care about her and want to help.

The bond Chatan and Jacinda have is unbreakable. I loved watching Chatan and Jacinda grow closer together. Also enjoyed seeing some of the council members but to see Jacinda and Brent learn more about each other was heartwarming. One of my favorite scenes was the tattoos that Chatan’s brother does for them. The other was how Chatan ended up staying with Jacinda in the hotel and car rides.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 2018
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

 

I’ve loved and lost. Now I lose myself in mindless sex, drinking and work, anything to pass the time and fill the void that I feel. Another drink, another guy…until Chase Wilson. He’s not what I expect, turns out he’s also not who I thought. Then again, neither am I. 

 


 

Some might call what I’m doing destructive, I call it survival. When finally putting myself out there backfires, I vow not to let it happen again. I know what my body wants, but it’s not what my heart needs and it’s about time I learn the difference.
As life around me moves on, I realize life is worth living and that I’m worth loving. But old habits die hard as I struggle to understand Chase’s motives for trying to save me from myself.
One thing is clear. For the first time, I’m done being perfectly lonely.

#Review Bound by Destiny by Ryan Michele

38192500

 

Love knows no names—no bounds—sometimes you’re bound by destiny…
Micah’s choices and actions when he was young left him estranged from his family—the Ravage MC family. Older and wiser, it’s now one of his biggest regrets … along with pushing Emery away.
Emery has been walking a tight rope for far too long. Everything has changed. Dealing with her near death experience, her brother’s return, and her parents problems have left her feeling very lost in a world she thought she knew.
Except—sometimes when we are so lost we manage to find exactly where we should be.
Jacks didn’t mean for it to happen, but Emery slammed into him like a freight train pushing all the buttons he’d kept locked down for far too long. Jacks though, can’t get caught up in a game of who is the better man. Been there, done that, and lost in a big way.
When everything changes, destiny is all we can hold onto. Emery finds herself caught between two very different men unable to keep her heart out of the mix.
Sometimes we bleed for others—and sometimes the past, it just won’t let go.
Other times—some people walk away not allowing us to have a choice in the matter …
Those are the times that hurt the most and cut the deepest.

I received a copy of this for an honest review.

I really enjoy this family and watching these kids grow up finding their own path. It may not be the path their parents would choose but hey what kid listens to their parents.

Emery has been friends with Micha since they were kids. She got to see a side of him he never let anyone see. She has loved him for years but once can only hold on for so long. When Emery needs someone Jacks if the one there for her to lean on. Emery’s friendship with Jacks is growing and transferring into something more. However, when Micha decides to come home to make amends and claim Emery he sees there maybe someone in his way. The choice is Emery’s and Emery’s alone. Like Pops said “Who can’t you live without? If they were to leave you this very moment would either of them destroy you?” Well who will it be? Guess you will have to read it to find out.

I enjoyed this one I was never sure what was going to happen. I loved what Ryker did for Emery and Austyn. The end of this book does a great job of setting us up for the next book and boy do I wanna know what will happen next.
