his-undeniable-secret

synopsis

A short-story erotic romance from Shayla Black:

I’m Kayla.
I’m twenty one.
I’m afraid because ever since a sudden, terrible tragedy, I’m alone in the world—except for my brother’s best friend. But now Oliver intends to move back to London.
I’m in love with him. And I have to persuade him to stay…somehow.
Maybe if I tell him I’m a virgin and show him just how far I’m willing to go to keep him, he’ll give in.
Of course, I never expected that he’d be keeping a shocking secret of his own…

#Release Day #Review Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink Book 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

img_0420

synopsis

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

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

If you are a fan of the Montgomery Ink series, I know what you’re thinking, Yay Alex finally get his story!!
If you’ve never read the series once you’ve read Alex, you will love it so be prepared for your brooding men with tattoos lust to begin!!!
Alex is the youngest boy of the Denver Montgomery family, the last few years haven’t been the best for him; broken marriage, destroyed his little sister’s wedding, and went to rehab for his alcoholism.
Tabby, is the executive assistant for the family’s construction firm and runs it like a top, oh and is a honorary member of the Montgomery family.
I love that Ryan made the choice to set Alex’s story a year after the last book, so he’s had a while to get his demons until control and to rebuild his life, a year to be ready to love again.
Tabby has had a crush on Alex for a while and sees that he still doesn’t feel comfortable with his family after the events of the past, and she has a past that no one knows about.
I can’t believe how well these two go together, they’re like each other’s missing piece.
Tabby so understands him and can see what no one else can see with him. Alex learns that yes he screwed things up in the past, but he has to forgive himself like those he loves has, and live again.
Ryan has done a excellent job at showing how addiction can change people, how people deal with it when a family member has a disease such as this, and how a person can come back from the heartache it causes.
Make sure you have tissues handy for this one because Alex and Tabby will wreck you, but the introduction of Tabby’s hot as heck brothers will make it all better. It also doesn’t hurt that Alex has take up fighting, so we get to see his yummy tatted up and sweaty bod in the ring!!
Can’t wait for more Montgomery stories and fingers crossed on seeing more of Tabby’s yummy overprotective brothers.

#WOTR #Release Day #Review #BDSM Benevolent Master (Doms of Napa Valley Book 3) Dakota Trace

writers-on-the-river-attendingauthor-2017

img_0416

synopsis

Single mom, Alyce O’Connell is a desperate woman. With her thesis almost complete on the intricate relationships between dominants and submissives she thinks she’s found a way to better her and daughter’s life – until her adviser won’t sign off on it. Dr. Gylberte insists that Alyce needs some actual in ‘the field’ experience. While she can’t believe the woman is going to withhold her approval until Alyce has experienced at least a few weeks in the role of a dominant or submissive, Alyce is willing to do anything to get it – including begging the man at the door of New Beginnings to help her.

Kaleb Terzis loves his life. He not only gets to help kids by running one of the most popular youth art centers in Napa Valley, he also works part time as a Dominant at New Beginnings with several of his friends. He’s footloose and free – content to play the field of willing submissives, until a desperate woman comes into the club, all in the name of research. Even as he’s prepared to hand off Alyce to Master Ethan, he changes his mind when Alyce shivers at his touch and turns those needy eyes his way. Attracted to the cool beauty despite her resemblance to his ex wife, he takes her on – determined to prove that under her impersonal demeanor is a woman who needs to submit.

He just never expects her to turn the tables on him…

kristis review

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

Ok when I was asked to read this book I was thinking “BDSM, hells yeah!” At the same time I hadn’t read any of the other books from the series so I didn’t know if I would be missing something or not.
Luckily, I didn’t need to read the other books and I enjoyed this one so much they’ve been added to my TBR list.
So we have Alyce O’Connell trying to get her thesis on BDSM approved so she can get her degree to be a psychologist. She is doing everything she can to provide for her autistic daughter and herself after getting out of a very bad marriage.
When she is put into contact with Master Kaleb to find out about true submission things get interesting.
After seeing her, before her sister got them kicked out at The New Beginnings club, he can’t get her out of his mind.
Both of these characters have been burned by ex’s and you can tell in the way they act.
Trace has done a great job in putting you into Alyce’s mind and her feelings both past and present on herself, submission, and sex in general ring true.
Master Kaleb does a excellent job with teacher Alyce what she needs to know for her thesis and helping her find the submissive within. He also does a excellent job letting her know that yes she’s a mom and her child will always come first, she’s also a woman that a man can fall in love with.
A Douchebag ex hubby, a bitchie sister, and a bi-polar mother also make a appearance.
All in all, this was a story about no matter how much you’ve been hurt in the past love is still out there if you let it happen.

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!

Received a copy for a honest review

Ok, so this is Mrs. Teresa Gabelman’s contribution to the Taming the Vampire box set, one of 25 books by some fabulous authors, out just in time for Halloween.

This book is about Maverick, a vampire and Becky, a human. Once upon a time Maverick was human and they were in love, but Maverick was turned and pushed her away to keep her safe.
First let me say that Maverick being a Vamp doesn’t change the fact that he’s a dude and dudes think they know what’s best when it comes to the safety of the women they love.
Second, hello another group of sexy vamps from one of queens of sexy vampires.
Maverick, once human now vampire, is a part of the Enforcers. If Gabelman’s vampires were law enforcement the VC Warriors would be the Feds and the Enforcers the local law enforcement. They are after a certain group of vamps and Becky just happens to be caught in the middle.
The action starts right off the bat, I love the reactions that Becky and Maverick have to each other after the time they’ve been apart. The way they feel about each, like in real life, hasn’t changed due to time and circumstance.
The new vampires are funny as heck, they protect the good guys, and love hard. I for one have my fingers crossed for more of the Enforcers, whether they are on their own or intergraded in with the Protectors, hint hint!! . Oh, and Becky by the way kicks ass, literally!!! Love a strong woman who knows what and who she wants.
When men, be they human or vampire, realize that no matter what happens to you a woman who loves you will always love you, magic happens.

The Enforcer by Teresa Gabelman

 

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

Oh Teresa you and your vampires….I mean you know I love me some VC Warrior Jared in The Protectors series but these new guys…Can I get a hells YES to them!!  OMG!!  I am thinking ol’ Dusty may be my new baby daddy in this series too!!!

SO this is a new series by one of my favorite paranormal writers.  If you love her other series, you are going to need to jump into this series as well.  The Enforcers are tough, big and uber alpha plus super funny. Maverick has loved Becky forever but he disappeared due to being changed.  When he sees her with the bad guy he and his Enforcer friends have to figure out her connection to James.

Becky is still not over Maverick.  He left her and she has no clue why.  When she is forced to spend time with him to protect her from some bad people, she has to deal with her heart falling all over him again and the devastation she will feel when he leaves.

This story is a GREAT into the new vampire series.  I can’t wait for more!!

Melinda's Review

Teresa Gabelman – The Enforcer

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

I love Teresa Gabelman’s Protector’s and even her Lee County Wolves but there Enforcers are going to be some competition. Although Maverick was great I’m thinking Dusty is going to the top of my list.

This is about Maverick who was absolutely in love with Becky. Until one night his life changes and he disappears from Becky’s life. She is heartbroken for months. You see Maverick was changed in to a vampire and he decided his life was too dangerous for his Becky. He though the only way to protect her from him and his new life was to leave her. Until one night she is tossed into his world and planted right in front of him. Now he has no choice but to protect her and keep her safe.

Becky will have to endure his presents and deal with the heart break all over again when he leaves her again because she knows it will be coming.

What a great series I loved Becky’s sass, stubbornness, and fight. She is a strong female that can stand on her own feet and stand up to big bad vampires. The vampires are wonderful too and I cannot wait to get to know then better.

#Release Day #Review The Hunt by Harper A. Brooks

img_0380

synopsis

Prince Kael has just lost his father to an assassin, and he’s the next target. A murderer is on the loose, the kingdom is in disarray, and Kael is determined to make the person responsible for killing his father pay. But falling for the beautiful Cara, panther-shifter and main suspect in his father’s murder, wasn’t part of the plan. He’s not at all sure she did it, and he finds himself going against everything he’s ever known just to claim her.

The ceremonial Hunt is approaching, and mates must be chosen to run together. The hatred between the tiger and panther species is all they know. If Kael and Cara follow their hearts, it could mean treason and death.

kristis review

I received a copy for a honest review

This is my first Harper A. Brooks book and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I love shifters stories and the take the Brooks gave is her own little spin on the beginnings of feline shifters. Her storytelling pulled me in from the beginning with how it started right away and there was no lag time between the happenings in the foreword and the story itself.
Our story happens during a time and place that panther shifters are shunned and hated, tigers are the ruling felines with the other feline races in the middle.
Cara is a panther doing all that she can for her younger sister and aging grandmother. It’s hard though because being a panther they live on the outskirts of the great city where there is little animals for hunting and no one in the city wants to trade with a panther.
Kael is the tiger prince, the next Rei or king in their world. He’s known nothing really other than his training as the next Rei and the things he’s learned from his father.
The Hunt is where a male picks his mate and they run through the sacred forest hoping to receive blessings from blessed mother Sajara.
Cara and Kael meet when the current Rei, Kael’s father, is murdered in the town square while announcing the hunt will start soon. Kael thinks that Cara is the assassin and takes chase, Cara being a hated panther does the only thing she can do…..RUN.
Cara will doing anything for her little family including being falsely imprisoned. During the time leading up to the Hunt lots of things happen, but the most important thing I think is Kael learning that maybe his father didn’t know everything about his people and Cara learning that it’s ok to take care of her grandmother and sister, but she can not forget herself while doing so.
The Hunt was a sweet little shifter story with some intrigue mixed in. I would definitely read more stories set in this shifter world.

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.

Synopsis

After suffering a brutal hate crime, submissive Trevor Hammond’s outward appearance projects the usual carefree demeanor his friends know and love. But inside, the remnants of his battered psyche and the ghosts of his assailants keep him bound in chains of anxiety.

While his Master, Moses Abrams, aka Daddy Drake, is aware of the devastation consuming his precious sub, he finds himself powerless to neutralize his lover’s demons. Embarking on an unconventional journey, Drake is determined to find a way to heal and bring back the man who owns his heart.

Will his love be enough to draw Trevor back from the darkness?

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

Yay, Moses, aka Daddy Drake, and Trevor finally get their book!! I have been waiting for their book since Embracing My Submission!!!!
It really bites that it happens to be after the events in Seduced by My Doms, but this is where they needed to be.
Trevor has always been this bubbly, happy go lucky sub; the sub that everyone at Club Genesis, Dom and Subs alike, love.
However after he was severely beaten, he is no longer the sub he once was.
The love that Drake has for Trevor can be seen in everything he does, it’s a beautiful thing. No matter how bad Trevor is mentally after this event, Drake doesn’t stop fighting to get His Trevor back. Both are dealing with guilt about the incident and Trevor seems to be sinking further in a black pit.
Yes, the sex scenes are hot between them, once Drake realizes he isn’t going to trigger a relapse in Trevor. However, for me they are just the icing on the cake in this story. Trevor finding himself and releasing he can’t let his tormentors win is the very best part of this story. It is a rough road getting there with a few bumps along the way, but he finally find himself in the end and it is wonderful to see the Trevor we all love come back.
Omg!!! Julianna and Mika are the best family anyone could have by the way, what they do for Drake and Trevor is simple heart melting!!!

#Review #ReleaseDay Year of the Scorpio:Part One by Stacy Gail

img_0350

synopsis

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a DARK mafia romance. In addition to several scenes with strong sexual content, there are also scenes involving violence, death, gun play, mention of sexual abuse, and adult language. Due to the nature of this book, it is intended for 18+ audiences only***
They call me Dash.

Sixteen years ago my brother and I were kidnapped. The Scorpeones believed our father, boss of the Vitaliev Bratva, could be pressured into relinquishing his hold on Chicago’s underworld.

They were dead wrong.

Ultimately the Scorpeones made the youngest of their family pay for their sins. I tried not to care. Marco Polo Scorpeone, the hostage whose life was forfeit if his family moved on the Vitalievs, was the enemy. Why should I care if he was tortured worse than a prisoner of war?

Except I did care.

For sixteen years I’ve cared, more than I can say.
They call me Scorpio.

There was no light in my world. Then I saw Dash smile.

No voice could pierce my darkness. Then I heard Dash speak.

I’ve killed to survive. Killed to please my handler. Hell, I’ve killed to please myself. Killing is what I do.

I know I’m not good enough for Dash, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that she’s mine, from now until the end of time. But that time might be nearer than I think, because someone deadlier than me is closing in…

Author’s Note: This is the first half of a two-part story arc. YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART ONE ends on a cliffhanger, which will be concluded in YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART TWO. You have been warned.

For those of you that have read Gail’s House of Payne series you might remember Scorpio, as he likes his enemies to call him Polo to his friend, from Rude and Sass’s book. For those of you who have not them two things: one read that series and two Scorpio works for the head of the Vitaliev Bratva which is the lead Russian mob family.
He was given to the Vitaliev family as a child to stop a war and though he was treated like a son he never forgot why he was there, who sent him there, or that he essentially was a prisoner all his life. He grew up and became the go to guy for the head of the family and lead bodyguard for Dasha Vitaliev. Now he’s free.
Dasha Vitaliev, she is not some pampered princess living in the dark she knows what her father, now her brother, does. She also knows that Polo has been gone for six months following the death of her father and he’s back.
These two are great together. When you read the whole back story of the Vitaliev/Scorrpeone war you’re amazed these two come out of it as well as they have. The darkness of the early years have tainted some, like Dash’s brother, but have made these two strong.
What I love about them is she knows what he has done all these years while employed for her family, but she doesn’t care she sees the man. He thought he needed to be “clean” for her, but he just needed to be him. Shit hits the fan while these two are becoming a couple, Polo vows to do anything to keep her safe as she’s his reason for living. I think he’s surprised when she tells him to do it, she’s knows no matter what he does or who he has to go through, he is still her Polo.
Now I’m gonna warn you, you’ll need tissues as this is a mafia story and people die and it’s not just the bad guys. Oh, and you’ll wanna throw your device but remember this is only Part One of the story so DO NOT DO ITT!!!!

about the author

img_0351

A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.
