#ReleaseDay #DoubleReview #BDSM – Bound by Love (Brie’s Submission Book 17) by Red Phoenix @redphoenix69

Bound by Love (Brie's Submission Book 17)

Our Love is Epic…

My name is Brie, and I am a submissive.
This is my HEA.

In a world of kinky passions, I have found true love with Thane.The sex is incredible, the level of passion unreal!

My heart completely melts when I look into the eyes of our baby.

This is the beginning of my happily ever after, but it will be a fight because there are those who seek to destroy it.

It seems my life is fated to reflect the sensual play I crave.
To enjoy the pleasure–I must face the pain.


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

I have been waiting, as all the fans have, for the birth of baby……………*shakes finger* Did you think I would let that spoiler outta the bag?  That is a negative!!  Wanna know?  Then read the book!!

This book was a great jump back and forth in time from Brie’s POV.  We get to see scenes from Sir’s book and how she was feeling plus we get to see her thoughts about coupling with Sir annnnnd our favorite Russian….MMMM Rytsar.  I know I love seeing the dynamic of their friendship and *Wink* MORE.  The More is ALWAYS GOOD READING and Red didn’t let us down *Blushes*

WE get a lot more in this book too.  WE get to see a happy and in love Lea.  After EVERYTHING she went trough with Mrs. Clark I was so happy to see Love in the air for her.  Granted I had HOPED it would be with Rytsar but she is happy so I am good……Or is she?

Mary….Oh Mary….What is going on with you?  I never thought I would say this, but Mary REALLY DOES LOVE Brie and Lea.  After what she does in this book for the girls, I seriously hope she gets an HEA because she does deserve it.

Seeing scenes with Master Anderson and Tono are always great additions to any book of course. I love getting to see the old gang in any capacity.

Lilly, Oh friends she is still causing trouble for our couple.  Unfortunately, our couple doesn’t know her evil is still out there causing havoc on their lives.

More evil from the past in the form of Brie’s bully comes back into play.  I wonder what is going to happen with this story line because Brie is pretty shaken up with memories of her past with Darius.

This book does a great job setting up more plot for more books plus letting us reconnect with our old story lines and characters.  I love this series and stop whatever I am doing to sit and read.  Sir and Brie’s love story is truly EPIC like the Blurb suggests.  #CondorLove

Yes!!! I have been waiting for this book.  We have seen Brie grow from a young woman to a glowing mom to be to now seeing her become a mom.  I absolutely love the way this book takes us from present to past.

There were so many great things in this book.  WOW I love Brie’s imagination the scene Brie thought about to keep her mind off the labor pains was well yeah you will need to read that. The photo shoot was a great scene also I loved seeing pregnant Brie. The pranks Rytsar and Brie pull on Master Anderson I was giggling the entire time. Rytsar was amazing he is the best Dyadya ever.

It was great to see everyone from the training center again.  I have to say seeing Brie, Lea, Mary, and Autumn together and them having one of their girls night was great. Oh gosh Lea your crazy jokes just kill me oh heck you in general kill me. Everyone needs a friend like Lea. I have to say I go back and forth with disliking Mary to liking Mary and this was a like time.

I am so in love with this series and these people.  I cannot wait for more of Brie and Sir to see how their lives continue to grow and intertwine with all of their friends. No matter how far they go from one another they always end up back together for one reason or another even if it is just for a short time.

When it’s no longer a voice of reason, a voice of comfort giving us a pep talk when we need one?
What happens when that inner voice turns into a bully?
You’re fat.
Don’t you dare eat that. 
You’ll never be as pretty as her
You’ll never be as good as them.

You are disgusting.
You. Are. Nothing.

#NewRelease – Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh


Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh
Publication Date: March 19th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Willow Haven’s content. Okay, that’s a lie, but she has tried her damndest. Trouble is, it never sticks. Second oldest in a family her town was named after, she’s always felt the pressure. From the townspeople, from her sisters, but most of all from her daddy—the original Good Old Boy and Havenbrook’s reigning mayor. The only time she didn’t feel that stress had been those blissful months spent in the arms of the resident bad boy. The same one who broke her heart beyond repair when he left without a word.

Life hasn’t come easy for Finn Thomas. He’s had to claw and fight for everything he’s ever had—and truth be told, it hasn’t been much. He spent the first eighteen years of his life living so far from the wrong side of the tracks, he couldn’t even see them through his trailer window. The only thing that ever came easy for him and made his sorry ass happy was the one girl he loved with all his heart. And the one thing he had no choice but to leave behind.

When an opportunity arises to return to his tiny, southern hometown and open the first bar in a formerly dry county, he jumps at the chance. That won’t win him points with the mayor, who’s hell bent on making Finn’s life a nightmare for sullying his namesake. Too bad for Mayor Haven, Finn’s got his sights set on more than just the town, and this time he won’t be scared off quite so easily.

#NewRelease – Retaliate Series: Vigilante Justice #2 By: Kristin Harte

Title: Retaliate
Series: Vigilante Justice #2
Author: Kristin Harte
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 15, 2018 

The second book in the Vigilante Justice series features a dangerous second chance romance… 

He loved her…and lost her 
Justice is still under attack, but it’s been quiet. At least, until I get a phone call saying a resident needs help. Not just any resident either. The grandmother of the woman who ripped my heart out of my chest over a decade before. One trip up the mountain, and my worst fears—and biggest hopes—are realized. Anabeth’s back and just as captivating as she’d always been. But when she faces off against a Soul Suckers rider, I’ll have to do more than protect her. I’ll have to figure out a way to win her back. Because there’s no way I’ll ever let her go again. 

She’s never gotten over him 
Fourteen years after leaving Justice for what I thought would be the last time, I’m forced back to say goodbye to the only family I’ve ever known. The town’s as small as ever, and being there is just as painful as I remember. The memories of big hurts and bigger mistakes won’t leave me alone…and neither will my ex. I’m still attracted to Bishop Kennard—even more than I was as a lovesick teenager—but he’s a man now. A tough, brutal man who will stop at nothing to protect me. 

Too bad he’s the one who needs protecting…from the things I did that caused me to leave him behind in the first place. 
“I want the whole story, Anabeth.” Bishop began to pace, his steps long and loud. Stomping almost. “I deserve that much. You never gave me a fucking reason why you left.”


And I never would because to admit what I’d done would break him. Break us forever. A sob ripped through my chest, racking my body hard. “I can’t. You’ll…” 



“I’ll what?” Bishop lunged and grabbed my arms, holding me up, staring down at me in a way he never would again if he knew. If I told him. With care and compassion and feelings so strong, I could almost believe he’d forgive me. But he wouldn’t. I couldn’t even forgive myself. “Tell me, Anabeth. What is it you think I’ll do if I know?”



“You’ll hate me,” I snapped. “You’ll never see me the same way, and I can’t. I just…”



Bishop stood solid and firm, waiting for me to finish my sentence. Watching as if hoping I would keep talking, but I was done. Out of words. Battlements restored.



Hating myself, knowing he wouldn’t stop pushing me unless I made him, I said the only thing I could think of to end the conversation. “Katie’s waiting on the boxes.”



Bishop reeled as if I’d slapped him with my words. I didn’t back down, staring right back at him as he gaped at me. As his own walls came crashing down, his face going from hurt to pissed in two seconds flat.



“You ruined us, Anabeth,” he said, his voice empty and lifeless. “Whatever happened—whatever you’re keeping from me—it destroyed us both. Don’t you get that? I should know what took you away from me. I should know why my heart’s been broken for fourteen goddamn years.”



But the words wouldn’t come. I’d promised myself I wouldn’t ever tell him, wouldn’t ever bring that pain to his door. A broken heart was nothing in comparison, so I simply shook my head and pressed my lips together as the tears flowed. As I collapsed under the grief and self-hatred that I carried every day. As I watched him shut down.



He grabbed a box of signs and headed for the stairs, leaving me behind. 











Kristin Harte started off as a chemistry major in college but somehow ended up writing romances featuring ex-military heroes and the women who knock them to their knees…literally and figuratively. She likes drinking in the shade, snuggling under a warm blanket on a cold evening, and researching how to blow things up. Her children know nothing of what she writes, and her husband just hopes he’s not at their Chicago-ish home the day the government shows up to confront Kristin about her Google search history. 

When not writing good men doing bad things, Kristin can be found writing paranormal romance as Ellis Leigh or co-writing naughty novellas as London Hale.


#WOTR18 #Review #NewRelease – Outcast, A Good Guys Novel by Jamie Schossler


My infatuation with Ezra Johnson started how all obsessions begin—with a simple crush. Over the years I silently soaked up every shy smile and random act of kindness, wrestling them away to a secret place in my heart meant for unrequited love.
Because if it wasn’t for the fact that I tutor him once a week, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t even know I exist.
Then I find his sketchbook.
And it changes everything.

There are two certainties in my life: I’ve been in love with Kayla Reynolds since I was fourteen, and I can’t have her.
I’ve spent years settling for a two-dimensional fantasy world, capturing her beauty with a pencil and paper. She’s kind, smart, gorgeous…
And she belongs to someone else.
Or so I thought.
An interesting turn of events makes me realize things aren’t always how they appear on the outside, and now I’ve got my chance to be the man she deserves.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called a loser. The cripple. An outcast.
But maybe—just maybe—this time the good guy won’t finish last.



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

OH MAN!!  Ezra!!  I gotta say it.  This is my favorite book of the series. FAVORITE!!!  Ezra and Kayla are such a great read!!

Ezra and Kayla are both blind to the way the other feels about them.  He thinks he is the gimp with the limp and the squishy belly guy so no way would this beautiful girl like him let alone LOOK at him THAT WAY.

Sure Kayla is a popularish girl who is seen as another guys girlfriend but little does everyone know what is really happening between Gavin and Kayla.  Side Note: Gavin needs a book.  He needs some love Jamie!!!

Ok back to the review.  When Kayla discovers Ezra’s secret she decided to go after what she wants buuuut is stunned he pushed her away.  The couple spend the summer writing letters and forming an amazing bond that will help them when they go away to the same college in a few months.

Ezra is such a great guy.  He feels even though he has changed a bit physically he is still not enough for Kayla and makes a few stupid decisions…but I mean even he says Guys do stupid things…..

Kayla is such a sensitive person.  She really loves her people with her entire heart.  She doesn’t let a lot of people in but when she does, you are set for life with her.  Looking at all the people she helps in her life from Gavin to Paul shows the amazing character she has and strength to know when to do the right thing.  Shauna is also a great person for her to connect with and she will help her grow in her charitable contributions.

There is just so much about this story that I love and I wasn’t able to put the book down because I needed to know what would happen….how would the first kiss go?  How would the first of OTHER things go? *wink*  But I loved seeing the two grow as a couple and as individuals in the story.

Jamie Schlosser grew up on a farm in Illinois surrounded by cornfields. Although she no longer lives in the country, her dream is to return to rural living someday. As a stay-at-home mom, she spends most of her days running back and forth between her two wonderful kids and her laptop. She loves her family, iced coffee, and happily-everafters.

#newrelease – Our Alternate Ending by Katie Fox

Our Alternate Ending

She was the hot mess who stumbled through his door.
He was the one who gave her a chance.


When Elle Callihan finds herself on the twenty-sixth floor of the country’s top publishing firm after putting her dreams on hold for five years, she’s not about to allow the opportunity to slip through her fingers.

There’s just one problem.

Her new, humorless, this-needs-to-be-done-right-now, jerk of a boss makes her working life a living hell.

With the minutes on his own clock ticking, CEO and certified workaholic, Owen Caldwell, has no time for anything. Not relationships. Not life. And certainly not the connection that simmers between himself and his new assistant.

As the pair work together, their undeniable attraction draws them closer, bringing a realization that sometimes life and the people in it are worth slowing down for. But when Elle is presented with a plot twist she never saw coming, she quickly learns that crafting her own story may be much harder than she initially thought.

Faced with a difficult decision, she has two choices: write the truth or deliver an alternate ending she knows they both deserve.



Katie Fox was born in Florida and raised in Pennsylvania, where she still currently resides with her husband and son. A hopeless romantic, she is a sucker for a good love story. When you don’t find her nose buried in one, she’s usually found in her writing cave, giving life to the voices in her head. Since a very young age, writing has been her passion. Katie has a crazy obsession with social media and loves interacting with her fans.


#review #Excerpt – Deeper Water, Once and Forever Book 3 by Lauren Stewart @ReadLaurenS

Title:             Deeper Water

Subtitle:       Carson and Laney’s After Happily-Ever-After

Series:          Once and Forever #3

Author:        Lauren Stewart

Genre:          New Adult/Romantic Comedy

Release        Date: Feb 11, 2018

Word Count: 57,000

Two people can only tread water for so long

 A steamy new romantic comedy with the characters you fell in love with in Darker Water and Virtually Impossible.

My name is Carson Bennett.

The first time I slept with Laney Temple was two years ago.

At the time, I thought I deserved a medal for all the effort I put into making it happen. I ended up with so much more than I’ve ever deserved.

Now, with everyone and my brother getting hitched, I think I’m finally ready for the next big step. To make what Lane and I have better and stronger. Deeper. I’m just not sure if she’s ready.

Unfortunately, life isn’t all bacon and glitter just because we say three little words to each other.

When we’re horizontal, our communication couldn’t be better. And the other forty-nine percent of the day—when my pants are zipped, her bra is hooked, and nobody’s hands are anywhere fun—it’s still easy and full of laughs.

It’s just that last one percent we haven’t quite figured out yet.

Time’s ticking. And if we don’t repair the cracks soon, water is going to rush in and break this whole damn thing apart.

~ ~ ~

Carson and Laney are back! Just in time for Valentine’s Day. Get a look at their after happily-ever-after and be there for Hayden and Andi’s island wedding.

*Deeper Water is not a true standalone contemporary romance novel like the others in this series. You will enjoy it much more if you read Darker Water first. I suggest starting there.

Darker Water, book one in this series, will be on sale for only 0.99

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

Oh Carsen!!  Oh Laney!! The 2 of you are so perfect for each other but your letting other people’s expectations of you and life get in the way.

SO Carsen and Laney are happy.  They are in love BUT the are in a limbo state.  Yes, they love each other.  Yes they live together BUT they have stalled.  Everyone else is getting engaged and married so why aren’t they?

Carsen knows he wants to marry Lane which is a crazy thought for him because he knows she can do so much better then him.  He wants to make the engagement the PERFECT engagement because women dream about that right??  The right proposal.  The perfect ring.  The perfect way to start their future.  But now, because Laney doesn’t push Carsen he worries that Lane isn’t looking to him as her future.

Laney is happy with Carsen but she knows marriage isn’t a top priority for him.  But she is feeling distance between the couple and she has no clue what it is.  When Carsen comes right out and asks “Am I the ONE for you?”  Laney and Carsen start to evaluate their relationship.  They know they love each other but why have their stalled?  What is the issue?

I enjoyed seeing our couple again. I enjoyed their inappropriate jokes and inappropriate behavior.  I enjoyed reliving their relationship again because the love they have is so amazing but sometimes you have to STOP and see what is going on in rode to move forward.

Personal note: Jellyfish stings are no flipping joke and I totally felt Laney’s pain plus laughed my arse off in the scene at the beach!!!

Lauren Stewart grew up reading Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, James Clavell, Piers Anthony, and Agatha Christie, which explains why she can’t seem to stick to one genre at a time. She loves emoticons and hates when people speak in the third person, so…

I got to the more romantic stuff pretty late, but paranormal romance was what changed me from an obsessed reader into an obsessed reader AND writer. I think my writing style comes from a mash-up of all my early favorites and my new ones, women like JR Ward, Karen Marie Moning, Nalini Singh, Charlaine Harris, and Janet Evanovich. Wow, how much would you pay to be invited to that dinner party?

I want to make people think, cry, and giggle, not necessarily all at the same time (although it’s great when it happens). In every one of my books, you’ll find elements of other genres – fantasy, mystery, romance, paranormal, suspense, YA, women’s literature, all with a touch of humor.

Because what doesn’t kill us should make us laugh.

What Inspired Me to Write This Book?

This whole series began on a dare—that I wouldn’t be able to write a standalone novel that ended in a happy ending (until then, I’d always written series where one couple takes a few novels to reach their happy ending).

What can I say? Definitely not that I can pass up a challenge because I can’t. And so, I wrote Darker Water.

Darker Water was a twist on The Frog Prince, with the heroine believing she has the metaphorical power to turn good men—princes—into assholes—frogs. Because all the men she’d fallen for had seemed perfect right up until she found out they were total pricks. So what does she need to make her believe in love again? A frog, of course. An asshole who, because of her love, finally shows us that he’s been an amazing man all along.

The fairytale at the beginning of that book (and for the next five books) came to me as soon as I started typing. It just flowed and set up the entire framework for the story. The second part of Laney and Carson’s fairytale, at the end, encapsulates what they’ve learned and where they’re headed.

When I was challenged by readers (remember how I said I can’t say no to a challenge?) to give them more of Carson, I did.

Deeper Water is a continuation of Carson and Laney’s love story, what I call their after happily-ever-after, as well as that of Hayden and Andi, the main characters from Virtually Impossible (Book #2). I’ve always been a firm believer that stories don’t end on the last page of a book, just like our love stories don’t end when we say “I do.” At least I hope they don’t because that would be awful.

So in this book, Carson and Laney run into some hurdles and have to repair a few cracks that occur in all relationships, regardless of how wonderful they are.

Who Will We Meet in This One?

First let me say that it turned out to be a great way to explore relationships at every stage. For instance, Laney’s parents who’ve been married for almost thirty years are in this book. Hillary and Eric, Laney’s ex-roommate and her boyfriend have been together for more than a few years. Emilia, Andi’s married bestie/boss and her husband have been married for a few. And Carson’s mother, Renee? Well, she’s had experience with a lot of different phases with a lot of different husbands. Ha.

As for other people we’ll meet or meet again? Carson’s evil stepsister, Anna. Hayden’s ex-wife who I absolutely adore, Clare. And we also get to know Andi’s screwed-up friend Sara whose story will be in Immaterial Defense, the next book in this series.

So it’s a pretty full cast for my shorter-than-normal book. I guess I just can’t say goodbye to any of my characters. Don’t be surprised if one of my paranormal characters appears in this series.

It might be a challenge, but then, you know how I feel about challenges.


Lane pulled me deeper until the water was about waist-high. She slipped her hands around my neck and jumped into my arms. I gratefully caught her under her ass, and she wrapped her legs around me.

“Am I too heavy?”

“Not at all. But if a shark comes along, you know I’m going to drop you and run for it, right?”

“Of course,” she said, smiling. “No problem—I can handle a shark.”

“What if it’s a big shark?”

“Depends who’s measuring.” Laughing, she ground her hips on mine, and my big shark woke right up. “Men always seem to think things are larger than they actually are.”

“You’ve never complained before.”

“I complain all the time, just not about that.”

“I’ve never heard you complain. You must be doing it wrong. Try whining more next time so I know.”

“Like this?” she asked in a high, nasal voice, her nose and upper lip rising and making her look as close to unattractive as possible.

“That’d do it.” I tried kissing her, but with her mouth contorted like that, I got more teeth than lip. Pina Colada-flavored.

She pulled away. “What were you talking to your brother about at the bar earlier?”

“Do you always think about my brother while we’re kissing?”

“Jealous?” she asked. The brat. “Or do you just not want to answer the question?”

“Always, and no. I’d rather make out than talk about Hayden.”

“Then answer quick so we can get back to it.”

I sighed. “Fine.” I spoke faster than an auctioneer on speed. “He planned a surprise wedding gift for Andi back home. I’m helping him with it.” Done speaking, I leaned in for my prize.

“Really?” Pulling away, she did that girlie inhalation that lifted her breasts up beautifully, as well as her brow and the corners of her mouth. Like she was the world’s most perfect marionette or something. “How romantic! What is it?”

I shook my head. “If I tell you, it won’t be a surprise.” I would’ve zipped my lips if my hands weren’t happy where they were—cupping her ass so nicely. Good thing the water was deep enough to cover us or the thirteen-year-old kid staring at us from shore would’ve gotten quite a show.

“The surprise is for Andi, not me. So spill.”

As much as I liked to tease her, she’d find out eventually. “Promise you won’t say anything.”

“I promise.”

“Promise me that if you break said promise, you will let me do every deviant thing I can imagine to you while saying, ‘Please, sir, may I have some more?’ Complete with the English accent.”

She stared at me for a minute, stunned or maybe trying to figure out what deviant thing I could be referring to that we hadn’t already tried.

“Promise,” she said finally, in an English accent.

“That’s my girl.” I kind of hoped she told someone.


Short Book Quotes

Fairytale Beginning:

Once upon a time, there was a frog who, with great care, held the heart of the most beautiful woman in his entire world.


Fairytale Ending:

For this couple, as with all others who are destined to be, “happily ever after” means they will never give up… on themselves or on each other.



It was as if we were both experiencing the same thing, feeling the same emotional component.

Oh, who am I kidding? He probably wasn’t thinking anything at the moment. Or, best case it was something like, “Ahhh…oooh…goooood.”



I need to know—yes or no.” He swallowed. “Do you believe we have a future together?”

“Yes,” I said without thinking. “I can’t imagine my life without you. But we still have a lot of stuff to work on before—”

“Sorry,” he said, his smile stopping my heart for a second. “I quit listening after you said yes. We’ll deal with the rest of it later.”


“Well,” she said, still waving to her parents, who’d just gotten caught by the crowd. “My father might still be under the impression I’m a virgin, and the man I’m with respects my decision.”

I swallowed my laugh. She wasn’t kidding. “Oh, I respect your decisions, babe. Completely. For instance, I respected your decision to ride me like a cowgirl the other night. And I had all kinds of respect for you when you dragged me into that restaurant bathroom a couple weeks ago because you needed to fuck right then and there. And that thing you did with your tongue the other—”


“Get dressed.” She pulled away from me and tossed me a t-shirt. “I promised them we’d be there.”

“And I promised myself we’d use all these condoms before going home. I allocated a certain number for each day, and we can’t fall behind.” I shrugged. “One of us is going to have to break their promise, Lane. Guess what my priority is.”


As much as I liked to tease her, she’d find out eventually. “Promise you won’t say anything.”

“I promise.”

“Promise me that if you break said promise, you will let me do every deviant thing I can imagine to you while saying, ‘Please, sir, may I have some more?’ Complete with the English accent.”

She stared at me for a minute, stunned or maybe trying to figure out what deviant thing I could be referring to that we hadn’t already tried.

“Promise,” she said finally, in an English accent.

“That’s my girl.” I kind of hoped she told someone.





#Review #Shifter The Blackstone Bear (Blackstone Mountain 3) by Alicia Montgomery

Ben Walker’s bear is out of control and he can’t let anyone know, not even his family and closest friends. The darkness inside is threatening to consume him, but when he meets Penny, he knows she’s the one: his mate, the one who can calm his bear. And for once in his life, he feels he has a bright future ahead.

Even though she’s human, Blackstone has become a sanctuary for Penny Bennet. It’s the place where she could start over and escape the scorn of the people from her past. When Ben suddenly declares she’s the one his bear chose, she’s not sure if she believes him. After all, why would he want to be with the girl from the wrong side of the tracks?

When an unknown threat puts his family in danger, Ben must take the lead to protect everyone and everything he holds dear. But, can he also convince Penny she’s his forever mate, before it’s too late?

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

Holy bearded brooding bear!!!
Ben is the Lennox’s cousin, he is a bear shifter, and works at the mines with his cousins.
I love a brooding bearded man and that he is a bear shifter just makes it all the more awesome.
Penny is a new waitress at the bar in town called The Den. She had moved back into the area to take care of her dying dad and now that he has passed she has to stay until she builds her funds back up before she can return to Texas. She is a shy girl and has thought that Ben was hot since they bumped into each of their at his cousin’s bachelor party at the bar, but he has no clue she’s around. Until he gets a whiff of her, then he and his bear notice her as their mate.
In this story Montgomery gives us a man who is sure that his other side is a monster and a woman that can calm that monster, that man taking the time to woo that woman (not just take her and mate her), another Lennox wedding, and some crazy a** relatives.
I love Montgomery’s shifters, she always leaves me wanting more.



Alicia Montgomery has always dreamed of becoming a romance novel writer. She started writing down her stories in now long-forgotten diaries and notebooks, never thinking that her dream would come true. After taking the well-worn path to a stable career, she is now plunging into the world of self-publishing.

Sexy shifters, billionaires, alpha males, and of course, strong, sexy female characters are her favorite to write. Alicia is a wanderer, along with her husband, they travel the world and have lived in various spots all over the world.


#NewRelease #Review – Paradise Found by Sarah O’Rourke

Paradise Found

Samantha “The Body” Dixon had once been a famous runway model who’d walked every catwalk from Paris to Milan and back again, but when her career abruptly comes to a screeching halt, she’s out to prove she’s got a whole lot more to offer than just a pretty face and killer rack.
Benjamin Atkins might have once been the most in demand photographer in the fashion industry, but times have changed and he’d learned the hard way to value substance over style. Now, he’s built a new life doing what he loves in the beautiful town of Paradise, TN.
When these two ex-lovers reconnect after a bitter break-up, can their broken hearts find a way back to their own personal paradise found?



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

AHHH These ladies!!  I love their books.  Reading their stories, its so easy to just open and read the whole story in one sitting!  I also love how each of the stories we get to see old characters from their other books.  We keep getting glimpses of everyone we have read about so it’s a constant updating of our couples!

Ben and Sami had the love of a life time.  They were so happy and are ready to begin their life together.  They are planning the wedding and then family for their future.  When Sami breaks things off with Ben he is lost and upset.  Fast forward 3 years and both are still miserable and lonely.  Ben is still blind sided by Sami’s betrayal.  Sami is still miserable for sacrificing Ben’s heart to give him his HEA with someone else.

The couple are thrown together with the help of 2 traitorous friends who know why Sami did what she did for Ben.  This causes Ben to take matters into his hands to make his Vixen remember he is hers and she is his.  DREAMY SIGH Ben is super alpha and super sweet.

I loved how patient ….ok kidnapping her was a bit much but still he was patient with her but at times I wanted to throttle Sami because she wouldn’t take the gift of a 2nd chance with Ben and run with it.  When Ben forced her to open her eyes and listen to her heart the story was amazing……

#WOTR18 #Review #Novella #Erotica – On a Whim by JM Walker


I’m in hiding.

As a bestselling BDSM author, I know all too well the danger of letting people get too close.

I’ve spent my entire life keeping people at arm’s length, until her. Kiki Smith is simply supposed to be my new cover designer, but before I know it, she starts breaking down the walls I’ve worked so hard to erect.

She’s unlike any woman I’ve ever met and before I’m even aware of what’s happening, she consumes me from the inside out.

There’s just one problem… I have a secret, and I’m afraid that once she finds out what I’m hiding, my barriers will once again slam back into place.



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

Hot little read from one of my favorite erotica authors.  JM can do a “quickie” very well.  *snickers* She gets you hot and bothered plus actually deliver a fun story to go along.

Kiki is a mother and book cover designer.  She is lonely and thanks to her bestie, Chaz, she is going to put herself out there again after her ex fiancée left her at the altar.

Bo is a model but also a romance author hiding from Kiki.  He is enthralled by her good girl persona and wants to see if she is the real deal before telling her his real identity.

The couple have a hot and steamy romance with lots of naughty fun to read…I mean come on it’s a JM book so OF COURSE the naughty fun is in abundance!!

The flirting was funny and sweet in the beginning but soon emotions (and fluid are swapped…LOL) but what will Kiki do when she learns of Bo’s deceit????  How will it all go down and what the heck was Parker Reed doing making a nice little cameo???

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.
