#AuthorSpotlight – Hell Yeah! Taboo Frequency by @GemSivad #KindleWorld #Novella

taboo-frequency-cover

When ultimate impulse collides with maximum control…

It’s all about taking charge. Luke Danvers has his future planned to the nth degree—until he steps on an IED in Afghanistan. Bitter, angry, and emotionally adrift, he returns to the States, ready to spend the rest of his life pissed off at the world.

Kiley Endicott has never been a poster child for moderation. Married and widowed young, she’s raising twins on her own. Since impulse has always ruled her life, it’s not easy being a sedate parent under the critically watchful eye of her family.

A Friday night lapse in sanity, leads Kiley to a hook up with Luke Danvers. Even in the cab of a truck, he’s an awesome lover. She wants more. But she’s got to be circumspect, nobody can know.

Luke hasn’t had fun in—forever. But he can’t stop grinning after he meets Kiley Endicott. It’s more than her being a totally uninhibited lover, but God knows he can’t get enough of that either. She makes him laugh.

She says nobody can know. Okay, he’s trained in stealth. He sets up a call system, a taboo frequency, guaranteeing her twenty four hour access in every way. But he’s not just waiting for their secret meets. He’s planning a siege.

EXCERPT 

“Maybe we can help each other,” she said looking up at him. He didn’t know what she had in mind but listened to find out.

“I’m a single mom. I don’t have a steady man because I don’t want one hanging around my two kids who are right now with my mom. She doesn’t babysit often and aside from Marcie, I don’t leave them with anyone else. I have a full-time life that includes a job and no time for a relationship. ”

“And?” He squeezed her shoulders, urging her to make an offer he wasn’t going to refuse regardless of what it was.

“And—I have certain biological needs I’d like to satisfy with something other than plastic.” She closed her eyes, her blush denying the intimacies they’d just enjoyed at the same time her hand stroked his thigh, promising more.

“Well as to those biological needs—seems like we can find a way to get them satisfied. When you’ve got the time, I’ll find the place.” He pulled up next to her car and put the truck in park, idling in front of her sister’s house, waiting for Kiley’s answer.

When she remained mute, he decided coaxing was in order.  “You do the calling,” he said, switching on his truck’s overhead light to search in the glove compartment for paper.

“I’d just as soon the whole town not know we’re carrying on,” Kiley murmured, her blush turning her pink cheeks to ruby.

“Carrying on?” After the uninhibited fucking they’d just engaged in, her old-fashioned description made him smile.

His quick rummaging turned up no paper, so before shutting off the overhead light, he held her hand and wrote his number on her palm. “If you change your mind and don’t call, it’s okay. I’ll not bother you. If you do call, I’ve marked your number a TF.”

“TF?”

“That’s military speak for taboo frequency—a contact too important to miss. You call when you’re able to get free and I’ll make sure we get together.”

He let her get half out the door before he added his last addendum to their deal.  “As to the plastic, you might want to bring it along for a ride or two. No sense in letting it feel neglected.” He liked a little variety in the sheets and he figured he’d let her know up front, he wasn’t all vanilla. He had a feeling neither was she.

#WOTR #Review Grim, King’s Harlots 2.5 by JM Walker

 

 

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He never thought he could be happy.

Vice-One had been what he needed most, until he met Genevieve Gold.

She can’t forget her past.

The walls she’d built are hard to break, even after falling in love with Angel Rodriguez.

They have been together for months, have tried to be happy but still can’t find that certain connection—the piece of them that should ignore the evils of life and focus on the love they have for each other.

 

Goodreads

 

What an intense and wild ride. Hot and steamy with all the drama we have come to love. This novella dives you right back in the middle of Jay’s and Angel’s relationship that has been quite the rollercoaster of twists and turns. In Grit these two fell in love quick and hard. They are both broken and have been independent for so long that they don’t know how to put the past in the past and move forward with their future. This is a quick read that gives you all the dirty details. You get a lot of background on Jay and can see how each one is tortured with this past. But most importantly you get to see how they start to come around to overcome this. There is a helluva surpise at the end that could change a lot for everyone. I have fallen in love with the King’s Harlots!

#Review #Shifter #Alpha Romancing The Alpha (True Mates 3) by Alicia Montgomery

***Can be read as a standalone billionaire werewolf shifter paranormal book**
In the next installment of the True Mates series, New York Alpha Grant Anderson meets his match in feisty New Jersey Alpha, Francesca “Frankie” Muccino.

New Jersey Alpha Francesca “Frankie” Muccino never had it easy. Alpha of her ragtag clan, head of her family, and manager of their ailing restaurant business, she’s got a lot on her plate. When a handsome, sexy, and very naked Lycan shows up on her doorstep, sparks immediately fly, but it’s one more complication she can’t handle.

Escaping from a kidnapping attempt by his enemies, New York Alpha Grant Anderson finds himself in New Jersey territory. He’s immediately drawn to the plucky and spirited Frankie, and has no qualms about going for what he wants – her, in his bed. The Jersey Alpha won’t be an easy catch, but Grant is determined to tame the wild she-wolf.

Danger brings them together as the evil mages come back for their revenge, determined more than ever to take Lycans down. Thirsty for retribution, they have taken in a new ally, one that’s closer to the New York clan and could finally bring them the victory they want. Frankie is caught in the middle of the war between the New York Clan and the mages and Grant will do anything to protect her. Can he keep her safe and win her over, or will the mages and their mysterious ally tear them apart?

Romancing the Alpha is a full-length (over 70,000 words) billionaire werewolf steamy paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series world. To understand the elements, I recommend you read “Fated Mates” and “Blood Moon” before this book.

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

Grant Anderson is the alpha billionaire of New York. He is trying to keep the lycan safe safe from the mages.
Francesca Muccino, to her family and friends, is one of the only female alphas to led a pack. She is New Jersey’s alpha, that is the New York packs neighbor, and she meets Grant by running into him literally like with her car, after he’s been drugged and kidnaped.
Though this is Grant and Frankie’s first meeting, it’s not the first time we are meeting her, we met her in book one when she saved Alynna from a group of catty women at her coming out ball.
Not only is Frankie the alpha for New Jersey, she along with her brothers, runs a Italian Restaurant that has been in her family for generations.
Even though they’ve never met Grant caught her scent the night of the ball and hasn’t stop thinking about the mysterious woman with the yummy smell.
In this story we not only have the mages trying to kill off the alpha, we also have a group of lycan working with them to try and take over New York. Oh, and we have a delusional female that thinks Grant is in love with her.
Frankie has major high walls around her heart where men are concerned and I have to say if I was in her place I’d say forget men and switch sides!! Lol, but seriously it takes hard work on Grant’s part to get her to see that he has real feelings for her.
Babies being born, surprise trips to Italy, hot alpha sex, kidnappings, killer mages, this book has it all and I can’t wait for the next one!!

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Stain by J.M. Walker
Asher & Meeka
HOLY COWZ…VERY INTENSE STORY
5 Stars

So, this is the second installment into the King’s Harlots series and it just keeps getting better. This was an action packed emotional roller coaster and that tore me up. Such grit and mayhem infused with sex appeal and peppered with humor. You can’t go wrong with this beautiful story.

Asher is on VICE-One and a Navy Seal. He’s trying like hell to shut down a sex trading ring. He’s inserted himself and Meeka into the dark world of monsters. On top of this mindfuck he’s entered into, he’s dealing with his own battles that seem to stay at bay when Meeka is around. What is this dude thinking? He needs some serious help!

Meeka is part of the King’s Harlots MC and still kind of on the outs with Jay the MC President due to some past shit. Meeka is a good girl. The girl nextdoor if you will. She’s quiet, poised, but always ready for anything. That is until Asher asks for her help in taking down this sex trafficking ring. Holy hell, how freaking scary. I cringed every time she had to meet with that evil jerk Charles.

The supporting character cast is fairly large. I think I’ll only mention a few. It was nice to see Angel and Jay making appearances here and there. I hated that fucker Tyler… but then again… I hated him in the first book Grit. He’s still not my fave, but plays an outstanding villain. Now this Charles Brian, holy freaking hell. This guy makes Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer look like the Pope. I don’t think there’s any human left in him, he’s mostly all monster.

So, to say this was good is an understatement. It was fanfuckingtastic! Stain has a great storyline that just keeps you guessing. I loved the characters, good and bad. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, but still somewhat perplexed as to where this is going to go in the next installment. Can’t wait to see! The pacing is perfect and the dialogue flows nicely. Great job Jo.

For His Eyes Only
Masters and Mercenaries, Book 13
By Lexi Blake
Coming February 28, 2017

A night he can’t forget

Five years ago, Nick Markovic found himself consumed by his quest for vengeance. The one time he managed to find peace was in the arms of Hayley Dalton. Being with her was like bathing in sunlight, and he ached to feel that again, but he couldn’t. He gave his oath to Hayley’s cousin Desiree, his partner at McKay-Taggart and Knight, that he’d never let his darkness infect Hayley’s innocent world.

A spark she can’t put out

It was years before that Hayley offered everything she had to Nick. After that one amazing night, all she wanted was to be his forever. Unfortunately, Nick’s reaction was to walk away from her and never look back. The warm and caring man she’d discovered was gone, and after Des’s death, he’d only grown colder. But when Hayley finds herself in mortal danger, she’s forced to seek protection from the man who broke her heart.

A flame that threatens to consume them both

Haunted by the women he failed, Nick can’t allow himself to grow close to Hayley again. Running to stay ahead of the powerful forces that endanger their lives, they travel from the lush Garden in London to the glittering lights of Rio. As the threat against her becomes clearer, he realizes that to keep her safe he must confront the demons from his past, even if it costs him a future with the woman he loves.

gun-shy-cover

Returning to his hometown to sell his hated father’s ranch, the last thing Andrew Grant expects to find on his first day in town is a reason to stay. But there she is, Melissa Divine. The girl he loved all those years ago.

But Melissa has changed since those innocent days. She’s just escaped from a hellish marriage and wants nothing to do with any man. Especially not this big, burly alpha biker who reminds her of her ex.

Can this former SEAL change her mind before his time runs out?

goodreads-badge  53b41b062dd5056cbd063f91

Excerpt

It was the grin that did her in. Warm, gentle, understanding.

It was that grin that washed away her reluctance.

He was the man she chose. He was the man her heart and soul told her she wanted.

Could she be wrong?

Absolutely.

There was that risk in every decision in every day of living.

There was no shame in the fear.

Running from it was the weakness.

She did not run.

She took a step toward him. And another. She went up on her tiptoes, cupped his nape in her trembling hand, and she kissed him.

His lips were mobile beneath hers and warm, but he made no other move. She had to take his hand and set it on her hip before he touched her. But once she had issued that subtle invitation, he didn’t require more.

He turned her around and braced her against the kitchen counter and deepened the kiss, sending glory and delight through her body. She reveled in the sensation of his mouth trailing hotly over her cheek and down to the crook of her neck, where he nibbled at the sensitive skin there.

Ribbons of pleasure skittered over her nerves and she pressed against him, trying desperately to get closer. His scent surrounded her, filling her nostrils, dizzying her mind. Filling her with an irresistible urge to taste him as well.

Madly, voraciously, they ate at each other, licking, lapping, nipping all exposed skin and then, in a frenetic rush, exposing more. In her frenzy, she popped the buttons off his shirt. They skittered all over the floor, but neither of them noticed or cared. They also ignored the dogs’ amusement with the new toys.

As buttons and toenails clattered on the linoleum, Andrew murmured something unintelligible and walked her backwards into the room off the kitchen.

Thank God the room was off the kitchen.

She didn’t think she had the wherewithal to make it up the stairs.

Her body was afire, liquid and languid—as though an angry volcano bubbled at her core.

Andrew seemed equally shaken. His hands shook as he removed her blouse. His eyes were wide, red-rimmed, as he stared at her breasts, cupped in nothing but lace.

“God,” he sighed. “God.” Then he whipped around and kicked the door closed with his boot.

She laughed. “Why did you do that?”

“The dogs sleep with me sometimes. At the moment I’d prefer they not join us.”

“Excellent idea.”

kristis review

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

This book picks up a month after the events in the previous book. The TF-S team is rescuing Caroline Cotter who Mr. J kidnaped, but little do they know that it isnt really Caroline.
Ok so many things!! First, this is Merc’s book and we don’t know much about him other than Mr.J really screwed him over, more so than the rest of the team I think. Second, you don’t really wanna feel for the enemy but God I can’t help it!! Nightshade is Mr. J’s daughter, well she think she and Caroline are really his because that is the lie that she has been told all her life. That Caroline’s father kidnapped her and killed their mother when they were babies, when in fact it was the other way around but she doesn’t know that.
Nightshade and Merc fall for each other, but she hates herself for it because she is just pretending to be her sister and knows that once everyone finds out who and what she really is they will hate her for it, but she is there to do a job and get out.
There’s just so many levels of hair pulling in this book!! Lol!! You tug a little bit because you see these two falling, you really pull hard and wanna throw the book because you know she’s the enemy’s daughter but you see that she isn’t as bad as him, and finally you just rip it out because you just wanna slap them both; him for not realizing she’s the enemy and her for not realizing the lie she’s been living.
I love that we finally learn more about Merc, that we get to see the rest of the team again, and that things in the end turn out better than predicted. I can’t wait to see the team get Caroline back, the real one, and Mr. J get his comeuppance.

#Review – Grit, King’s Harlots 1, by J.M. Walker

26244050

 

synopsis

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

 

He refuses to fall in love.

He was born alone and he will die alone. Or, at least he thought so until now.

Vice-One is all he knows. His squad. His brothers. The men he spends every day protecting. He is empty and only one person can fill this void. This darkness.

Meanwhile, Genevieve Gold makes it clear he should stay away when she is everything he craves.

 

She is lost.

Her heart has been ripped out; stomped on…crushed into tiny pieces, leaving only a gaping hole behind.

King’s Harlots is all she has. Her club. Her sisters. Her life. But something is missing until he shows up.

Angel Rodriguez is everything she hates but everything she needs.

 

Putting differences aside, they will work together to bring down a malevolent force threatening to rip them apart…

kellys review

Female MC’s and Alpha Military? Yes, please!!! O.M. Wow! Absolutely instense! The perfect set up for an incredible series. Alpha female and alpha male….who dominates?

Jay has grown up in the MC world and ends up starting her own female MC club. She has has so many things happen to her in the past that she closes people out but is fiercely loyal to the ones she loves. Angel is a Seal and is constantly being sent out on missions. He had a difficult childhood and with work he generally closes people out, except the ones he loves. On Angel’s downtime, him and his team do construction work. While working on Jay’s club there is an explosion, literally. The brief time that Angel and Jay met he has felt sort of protective of her. The explosion amplifies it. There are girls missing in the area and both are trying to get it sorted out. Both of their pasts creep up on them and things go chaotic. There are so many underlying secrets coming to light that will keep you glued to this story. There is no way you will put this down. From the HOT physical intensity to the chaotic story line to all the feels…….My only issue with the book is that it ended! Noooooo! This is the perfect storm for a crazy good, hot as hell story!

 

“A small smile crept on my face. He was adamant I would fall for him. Maybe he was right. But two could play that game. I was the creator of my own story, and no man was going to change that.”

 

“Angel Rodriguez was the epitome of every sinful desire I had. Every dark secret. Every fetish and fantasy. He dominated my body and took control, giving me the greatest pleasure in return.”

 

If you are still reading this you need to stop and one click this. One helluva ride! Woohoo!

angies review

 

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

WHAT!!  Asher…and…..Meeka!  OMG this book was so good…like way better then book Jay and Angel and that was a great book too!!!

OMG SO Asher and Meeka totally had me wiggling my eye brows at the two of them.  They had this chemistry but hid behind the “best friend” lines.  When Asher needs his best friend to go undercover he gets Meeka involved.   She doesn’t want to but the argument leads to a scorching kiss and has both of them shaking their heads. Meeka is like “What the heck?  Why am I reacting to my BEST FRIEND this way?”  However, Asher finally admits to his true lifelong feelings to himself about how he feels about Meeka.  I loved the friends to lovers story line.  They are both a mess and wanting it but so scared of ruining the best friend status they have had for years.  They both want what the other has to offer but are so scared to want it. The story of them falling in love is an amazing journey.  AMAZING!!!

Now the story that is going along with them two falling in love is with the traffickers again.  Asher is undercover trying to bring own this area of the ring.  Asher and Meeks meet with the leader and CREEPY doesn’t even do that man justice.  Plus the little spark he has for our Meeka…yeah Alpha Asher is not cool with it at allllllll.

The twist in the book was great and totally something I didn’t think would happen…..I loved the story and felt the ending scenes were a little bit rushed BUT that gave way to the feel of what was happening all around at the end of the story!  It was ANARCHY!!!!  As always with me, I wanted a longer epilogue but that is because I am an epilogue girl!  I am also excited for Colby and Brogan because that man is locked up tighter then Fort Asher!!

synopsis

Smokin’ Hot Military Romance!
Get the Complete Series of Irresistible SEAL in this Exclusive Box Set!
After an unhappy childhood, Luke Carter joined the US Navy and has dedicated the last twelve years of his life to the SEALs. But the relentless overseas tours have taken their toll on his mind and body and now he dreams of what life might be like outside the military. Love, romance, his own space—maybe even a family he can call his own.

Juliet Morgan works in the fast-paced world of finance. Beautiful, headstrong and smart, she chooses her career over love and puts all of her energy into her new job—a job she was ‘persuaded’ to take far away from her beloved Manhattan by her rich, overbearing father. She’s not looking for romance, but feels lonely and lost in her new environment so she turns to online retail therapy to lift her spirits and accidentally stumbles across a dating site where she’s awestruck by Luke Carter.

The sparks flicker to a roaring flame with each sizzling message between them—then the battlefield nearly claims Luke’s life and he’s rushed home to the States. Although he’s only an hour away from Juliet, in his mind everything’s changed and his pride gets in the way of the love, passion, and happiness they both so desperately crave.

Can Juliet break down the walls of this irresistible SEAL, or are they both destined to a life of loneliness?

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

This box set has all three books of the series so you don’t miss one bit.
Juliet is a woman who has been up rooted from a life she loves in Manhattan, by her father, to a life she hates in L.A. She has decided to prove to her father that he hasn’t totally screwed up her life by learning to love her new city and job.
Luke is a Navy Seal deployed overseas, who has signed up for a military dating website to try and find himself some back home, whether it be a Ms. Right or a Ms. Right Now. Juliet finds the dating site purely by accident but signs up anyways, and when she finds Luke’s profile she’s drawn to him.
First off let me say HELLO HUNKY SAILOR!!! Juliet and Luke really start getting to know each other and to like what they learn.
I love how when Luke comes home hurt she goes to him, no they’ve never actually met until then but they’ve gotten to know each other so well she can’t help but go to him.
Heartly writes about how a wounded solider feels and what they go through mentally so very well, you can’t help but be there and feel it too.
Juliet and Luke go through and over come a lot to make it, but make it they do.
The only thing I do wish is that Heartly showed Juliet’s father just how great her life became, but since they didn’t get along I understand the reason behind him not being in the book other then the first introduction of him.
