Excerpt

2019 Betty Shreffler
Crowned and
Claimed Series, Book 2, Twice Claimed
Ryker’s strong hand cups my chin, turning my face to his, smothering my lips with a fierce sexual tension I wasn’t prepared for. His tongue invades my mouth with delicious need, his kiss the essence of fire burning ice. I melt beneath the dominance, succumbing to the passionate force of his lips moving over mine.
When he pulls back, I’m caught in a haze, my body screaming for more. We’re silent in the darkness. Eyes lingering on me, his black irises study me in the bit of light cast from the stage. I feel captured in them as if I’m drowning in dark water, unable to see the surface, and my only choice is to sink and welcome what awaits me. Thunderous drums pronounce the woman’s orgasm, and my attention returns to the stage, my entire body humming with sexual desire. Through another act, the men fight, and by the fifth act, and the plot’s thirteenth night, both men lay with the woman. My cheeks flush red, my entire body alert,
my nipples pert, and my pussy soaked with arousal. I watch, entranced as the three of them act out their lovemaking, each man taking her on either side.
Biting into my lip, I fist my hands in my lap as a breath escapes my parted mouth. Glancing over at Ryker, his gaze is more than his usual intensity. I see the heat in his own cheeks, the sexual tension raging just below the surface.
He licks his lips in a way that’s all too inviting, and I imagine myself moving into his arms and him kicking everyone out, so he can take me on the table.

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

ANNNNND this book is every reason why I love Kate.  She can write the hell outta anything and make it super naughty!!!  This book had me turning red, getting hot, and anticipating what would happen to Mr. Miller and Mrs. Anders *wiggle eyes*

Monica was so me at one point in my life minus having the kiddos.  Falling and divorcing your child hood sweetheart who leaves you broken and devastated over cheating with a new, shiny toy.  She is just living life and wondering where to start to get it back on track when Logan enters her life.  Her new, hot, and much younger neighbor invites her over for coffee annnd a little flirting.

The couple “explore” things while her kiddos are gone and we wonder what will happen when the “vacation” is over.

Friends this book has so many feels even with it being a novella.

I received this book for an honest review. 

SAY WHAT!!! Ok Friends this is a novella but oh man it is packed with so much more. 

There is hot, spicy and like the title states Quick and Dirty.  Let me tell you I am addicted to Monica Anders and Logan Miller. 

Monica is a divorced single mom. The kids are off to their Dad’s and his “new” woman for the week. Monica has the whole week to do whatever she wants only question is what. Her decision was an easy one after she meets her SMOKING HOT neighbor Logan. 

All it took was two knocks to begin this super-hot and naughty week long fling between Mrs. Anders and Mr. Miller.  Question is what will happen when the week is over and the kids are back? I’m telling you I was flying through these pages just to find out what was going to happen next between these two.  I cannot wait to see what the next book will bring but I do know it will be sizzling HOT.

#NewRelease #DoubleReview #Erotica #BDSM – Master’s Fate (Rise of the Dominant Book #2) by Red Phoenix

Master's Fate (Rise of the Dominants Book Two) by [Phoenix, Red]

What’s hotter than a sexy cowboy who knows how to please?

I love women, I always have.
Raised to be a gentleman, I know how to treat a lady right—especially in the bedroom.
I have a secret weapon. Curious what it is?
I’ll be happy to indulge you, but you’ll need to check all your inhibitions at the door…

Goodreads

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

Oh Master Anderson.  I have loved each and every glimpse into you and your life, so this book did not disappoint.  I loved seeing the relationship between Thane and Rytsar.

I have always wondered why Brad was off put by love…I mean we know about Amy but to learn of the first ladies to break his heart……through different circumstances makes me appreciate the love story we see for him in the main Brie series.

Brad is a true gentleman.  The ladies love Brad and Brad SURE loves the ladies.  When his mom and dad make him wonder about MORE and he proceeds to court Glee I was wondering what happens.  We also learn about Paige…a girl from his childhood and what she has done to his heart.

Any Master Anderson fan will love this story and how it shows so much more to our favorite prankster.  But I am really excited after reading about Rytsar and Samantha in the next book..their relationship is so crazy to me knowing where they are NOW in life.

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

It’s Master Anderson’s story. There has been something about him that I have enjoyed. Maybe it’s the way he handles that whip he loves to use.

The thing I am enjoying the most is seeing Brad, Thane, Durov and Samantha growing their friendship and bonds. The way there come together and support one another even if it meant putting things they love on hold.

My heart went out to Brad reading about his childhood past. I also went through the same thing when I was 13 and it hurt to read it. I did like some of the pranks Brad pulled. Brad the always the practical joker was able to continue the pranks even his family got in on the fun.  From the bullwhip to the fire play was so fun to see but to see the ability of a dominate to submit and struggle was a different experience.

I enjoyed seeing the love, laughter and comradery between not only the guys but between Brad and his family. The bond these friends have just amazed me.

#NewRelease #Review #YA #NewSeries From Breath And Ruin (Elements of Five Book 1) Carrie Ann Ryan

In her YA debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan dives into a world with magic and sacrifice with the Elements of Five.

Five hundred years ago, the Maison Realm was shattered, divided into warring kingdoms of elemental Wielders with fate and truth shadowed and uncertain. Now, factions of both the light and dark venture into the human realm in search of the prophesied Spirit Priestess who is said to Wield the Elements of Five and bring the two fractured kingdoms together.

Lyric has no idea that there’s a realm outside the human one she lives in. When fate and circumstances are pulled from her hands after an accident, and she finds out that nothing is as it seems.

There is a war surrounding her and when Lyric realizes that they are searching for her, she must rely on those she once trusted: a boy who isn’t who she thought, and a new realm of warriors who have come to protect her as she trains.

For the darkness is coming, and the Queen of Obscurite wants to ensure that the King of Lumiere can’t get his hands on Lyric. And the only way to ensure that is if Lyric herself is no more … no matter the cost to prophecy.

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

From one of my favorite contemporary and paranormal authors comes a new series and it’s YA.  Carrie Ann Ryan leads us into a world of elemental magic, a world looking for it’s savior in the form of the Spirit Priestess.

Lyric, love that name btw, is a recent high school graduate trying to figure out her path in the world.  She knows she’s going to college, but for what?  Her friends  Braelynn and Emory know what they want to do in life, but not her she is just a ordinary bisexual girl from Colorado.  Well ordinary but the dreams she’s been having since she was a kid.

Rhodes is the hot dude from down the road, along with his sister Rosamond they show Lyric that the world is not what it seems.

Ok if you have seen the cartoon or read the Manga The Last Air Bender you can kinda get the feel of the realm of Maison.  There are people that can use the four elements or more than one of them.  There is also a caste system with Queens, Kings, Lords, Ladies, and the lower class.

Ryan has done a excellent job bringing this new world of hers to life, it’s totally different for her but not really if that makes any sense at all.  The characters, other than having magic, are real as well as the Maison Realm.

It’s exciting to see Lyric, who thinks she’s nothing special just a average girl, find new things about herself and how strong she really is.

Couple things though, Emory is also Lyric’s ex as well as her friend, however, she seems like a real witch to me.  She’s not nice at all and seems to cause trouble and fights with everyone.  Two, I don’t think that Rhodes is what he seems to be besides a hot dude that show Lyric that humans are not alone and magic is real.  Oh, Oh, Oh and there is another guy Easton.  He’s suppose to be one of the bad guys but I get the feeling that there is more than just the attractiveness of a bad boy about him.

I can not wait until book 2, to find out more about this world and to see what kind of path that Lyric takes to become the person that she is meant to be.

#NewRelease #review #TwinsieForTheDayBecky – Father’s Insistence-Dark Sovereignty #3 by Anna Edwards

A Father's Insistence (Dark Sovereignty Book 3) by [Edwards, Anna ]

One of five women who endured horrific trials to win the hand of Nicholas Cavendish, Lady Joanna Nethercutt suffered greatly throughout the ordeal, ultimately losing to Victoria Hamilton. She swiftly finds herself sold by her own father, who’s determined she’ll be of use to him yet. For a year, she’s “trained” in preparation for marriage to Victoria’s brother, with whom she’ll be expected to produce heirs that will one day strengthen and continue the very society responsible for all of Joanna’s torment. 
In the space of a breath, Theodore Hamilton is thrust into a secret society he knew nothing about, and married to a woman who seems terrified of his very existence. Suddenly, his carefree yet honorable life is filled with secrets and shadows, allies and enemies, leaving Theodore unsure who to trust…starting with his broken bride. His lure to the delicate beauty is tempered by external influence, lies and manipulation from all sides.
In this breathless conclusion to the Dark Sovereignty series, Theodore must decide where his loyalties lie, and race to destroy the evil men responsible for the immeasurable suffering of everyone he holds dear—including the wife he never wanted, but can’t possibly live without.

Review by Becky

Father’s Insistence-Dark Sovereignty #3 by Anna Edwards

I received the book for my honest review.  SLAM DUNK!!!

Theodore grew up in a sheltered life….protected from the dark and evilness of his father. He was at the ceremony when Nicholas chose Victoria to be his leaving Joanna at the mercy of the highest bidder.  Joanna was bought, hid, abused, and neglected by Theodore’s father.  He would continue for a year until the time was right and misled Theodore into thinking it was the Cavendish brothers who mistreated Joanna.  Theodore wed Joanna to protect her.  By Joanna’s omissions, she validated Theodore’s father’s story.
Theodore immediately felt a connection to Joanna and wanted to protect her.  Slowly, Joanna came out of her shell and disclosed the real truths of abuser.
This was the wrap up of the Dark Sovereignty series and was wonderfully written.  You could feel the connect between Theodore and Joanna and cheered her on to come forward.  I absolutely loved the ending which is actually the beginning of the new generation.
Another well-written story Anna!
What do you have up your sleeve for your next project? hmmmmmmm? 🙂

Ok, this is the bit where I have to sell myself. Why is it so much easier to write about sexy blokes! Anyway.

I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an Accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It was also around this time that I became one of the founding members of a dramatic/erotic/dark roleplaying group on Twitter. It was wildly popular with both English and American followers. The writing helped me to overcome my depression by giving me an outlet to channel my thoughts into and not sit around worrying all day about things that would never happen. I took over responsibility for management of the group and responsibility for the development of our storylines. As well as playing at least ten different characters in the group ranging from an innocent virgin, bloodthirsty assassin and even a male lover. The success of the role-play spurred me on to writing novels.

I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality. Surrendered Control, my first book released in November 2016, combines two of my favourite travel destinations. India is where I lived for eighteen months with my husband and two children. My young son was only six months old when we travelled there. It was a fabulous time for us all and they learnt so much about the differing cultures, as well as, much to my husband’s chagrin, spending lots of money in the silk shops. The Control series will feature lots of international travel.

I have always been an avid reader. Mainly murder mystery in the past but with Beautiful Bastard I discovered a whole new set of novels and I haven’t looked back since. I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demure but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Paranormal – The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon Book 1) by Genevieve Jack

The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon Book 1)

New Orleans: city of intrigue, supernatural secrets, voodoo, and one enigmatic dragon…

For 300 years, Gabriel Blakemore has survived hidden among humans after a coup in his native realm of Paragon scattered him and his siblings across the globe. Keeping his secret has preserved his dragon magic but led to a life devoid of true intimacy. Now a voodoo curse threatens to end his immortal existence. His only hope is to find an antidote, one that may rest in a mortal woman.

Death is a welcome end for Raven Tanglewood. After five years of unsuccessful treatment for her brain cancer, her illness has become a prison, something her adventurous spirit cannot abide.

When Gabriel heals Raven and binds her to him, he awakens a connection stronger than any he’s ever known. But she sees the bond as another kind of captivity. Can Gabriel win her love and trust in time to awaken the life-saving magic within her? Or will his fiery personality and possessive ways drive her from his side and seal his fate?

Goodreads

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

When I saw this book, I was curious for a couple of reasons.  The first is I wanted to read a book from this author and jumping into series that are already out plus a few deep is hard to do.  The other reason is HELLO SHIFTERS…..HELLO DRAGON SHIFTERS.  To be honest, I have only read one other series about dragons.  I loved the direction/spin she took with her series because it was very different from what I expected.

I will say the world building was slow and a time or two I was a little confused BUT stick with the story because after a while I couldn’t put the book down.  I was dying to know about Raven and her dragon Gabriel.  My favorite scene is when Gabriel admits how crazy he is for Raven…..this woman brought a powerful dragon to his knees…..sigh……..

The angst between the characters builds and it BURNS people…sooo burns!!!  I was so ready, much like Raven, for when they did some “How you doing “ time *Wink wink*  Their love story was very sweet and I enjoyed watching them fall for each other while also trying to protect the other.

The curse and the family fall out Gabriel has to over come was crazy intense.  Poor guy has a crazy woman and crazy uncle after him!!  I mean he can’t live anywhere without having threats to his life!

I am so looking forward to the next book and hanging with Gabriel and Raven again.  I am sure Gabriel will be just as possessive over Raven with his brother which is hilarious BUT also trying to find their siblings will be good reads.   I wonder how the family will react to the everything Gabriel has to warn them about in regards to their family!!

Dark Reign by Nikki Landis

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

I loved reading this short but awesome story from a new favorite author.

Ari and Evan, 2 people who should have never met BUT end up in each other’s path.  The little mermaid spin was great.  I could totally see it through the story.

Evan being human and Ari being a of another begin…two people who have no business being together and yet love finds a way right???  When Evan needs Ari, she is there but can it last?  Will it last?  I mean they have every reason to NOT be together, but can they find a way to make it work???

The story was a quick read for me one afternoon when I was home sick with the flu.  It was the perfect distraction from my misery!!!
