#WOTR #Review – Captured Innocence by Kennedy Layne




When former Marine, Connor Ortega, was ordered into the offices of Crest Security Agency on a Saturday morning, he didn’t expect the latest case to hit so close to home. A submissive has been murdered in a particularly vicious manner and to bring her killer to justice, he must go undercover. Not hard to do considering he’s already part of the BDSM lifestyle.

Lauren Bailey, a local vendor of bejeweled erotic implements, lives vicariously through her clients due to her fear of bondage. When Connor’s dominant side can’t resist trying to ease her anxieties, she accepts his proposal and agrees to his one stipulation…keep things casual.

When the killer sets his sights on Lauren, Connor is forced to rethink their relationship. He has the training it takes to catch a murderer, but does he have the courage to escape his inner demons and capture Lauren’s heart?

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable (anal play, strong BDSM theme and elements, violence). Not intended for those under the age of 18.

Series Description:

He has personally selected his own former military team members, both men and women, to configure a seamless Special Operations Capable (SOC) unit.

Melinda's Review

This is for an audible review.

This was my first Kennedy Layne and an audio review. I enjoyed listening to this one. I was pulled in and the narrator was wonderful. This had so many of my favorites Military, BDSM, suspense, and mystery.

Connor and Crest Security Agency is investigating a murder in the BDSM family when Connor is introduced to Lauren. Lauren owns her own business making custom jeweled toys for the BDSM community. Lauren knows how she deserves to be treated and doesn’t put up with crap. Connor is a dominate alpha male he is kind and caring but once he decides something is his he will protect it with his life. I love that Conner is caring and gentle when it comes to Lauren.

Between the chemistry that Conner and Lauren have and the mystery that was building in the story I so enjoyed listening to this and hatted to pause it at any time. The ending was a surprise I had no idea who the suspect was I was way off on that one. I am intrigued to learn about the other guys in this series. I will defiantly be reading more about these men.

Travis King is the worst kind of asshole.

He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards.

He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes.

And I hate him.

It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable.

But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.

His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are a waste on such an egotistical man, which makes me hate him even more.

Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s always made that very clear.

He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed.

I’ve succumbed to his manwhore ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.

Because the King is about to get played at his own game—and lose.

For as much as I hate him, I can’t stop thinking about him. A captivating attraction passes between us each time his dark eyes meet mine. As the late nights and business trips add up, we are compelled to cross the line of our professional relationship.

But how can I call him my boyfriend when I already have a husband?

“I’ll save myself from further embarrassment by cutting in.” His voice was deep, and I caught his scent before I saw him. Jack smiled at me and made a face like he’d gotten in trouble.

“I’m off to get Arlene some more wine.” He elbowed Cole in the ribs. “She gets a little randy after she’s had a few.” He laughed and scampered away to find his wife while Cole rolled his eyes in disgust.
He took my small hand in his big one, and my entire body flushed with heat at his proximity. Our hands had never touched before. If anything, he did his best to avoid any sort of contact with me.

His skin against mine was electric.

Just our hands touched, but it felt as if he was touching me everywhere.

He laced one arm around my waist as the notes of another ballad filled the room. We were dancing like old people, my hand in his, his arm around my waist, and my other hand resting on his shoulder.

That big, broad shoulder hidden behind his tuxedo coat.

My fingers flexed involuntarily, and I couldn’t help but notice how hard his entire body was beneath that sexy tux. My mind wandered and my mouth watered as I thought back to that picture I’d seen of him wearing just his swim trunks. That mental image mixed with the man in the flesh sent an aching need right to my core.

He pulled me just a bit closer to him, surprising the hell out of me, and I felt something rigid pressing against my hip.

Holy. Shit.

Was he as hot for me as I was for him?

No way. There was no possible way.

But his erection digging into me told a completely different story.

“What was my father telling you?” he asked in a deep rumble. I looked up into his eyes.

God, he was handsome. His milk chocolate irises had golden flecks in them that I’d never been close enough to notice before, and his breath smelled of peppermint.

I couldn’t think when I was this close to him. Words caught in my throat.

“That bad?” he asked. I sensed his nervousness.

I cleared my throat and broke our eye contact so I could think. “Just a proud father bragging about the time his son took off his clothes in a department store.”

“God. He tells everybody that stupid story. I’m surprised this is the first time you’ve heard it.”

I smiled. “It’s not so bad.”

“I was ten.”

I choked on my laugh as I tried to hold it in.

“It’s okay. You can laugh.”

I didn’t hold back, and even Cole chuckled along with me. I couldn’t help the joy that filled my heart in hearing even a small chuckle out of the man who was in a perpetual bad mood.

I made the mistake of looking up at him as we both laughed. When he smiled, adorable little crinkles outlined his eyes and he had a tiny dimple in just his left cheek. He looked carefree and young, ten times more beautiful than he had just moments earlier.

But when our eyes met, the mood instantly changed.

Neither of us was laughing anymore. Instead, an intense heat passed between us and the air around us filled with a raw and savage tension.

#WOTR #Review #Historical – Ivar the Red (The Wolves Of Brittany #2) by Victoria Vane


Ivar the Red



As the epic struggle to rule Brittany continues, Ivar the Red unexpectedly finds himself in charge of the Norse army after his brother, Valdrik, is severely wounded. Intensely loyal, Ivar is prepared to do everything to see their victory through—except taking a Breton wife. Nevertheless, Lady Emma of Quimper fascinates him more than any woman he’s ever known. Although her highborn status protects her from bondage, Ivar vows to claim her as his own.

Lady Emma of Quimper is determined to defend her home as fiercely as any knight, until she opens the gates to save an old friend from the clutches of the Vikings. But her trust has been misplaced, and she finds herself at the mercy of a bloodthirsty heathen—Ivar the Red. Pride keeps Emma from fully surrendering to the conquering lord of Quimper, even when she realizes he’s not quite the devil she imagined.

Ivar has always enjoyed a challenge, especially one from a beautiful Amazon with the heart of a warrior. Though she defies him at every turn, Ivar deals gently with Emma—until she betrays his trust and escapes. Refusing to be made a fool, Ivar sets out to recover his captive who is determined to return to Quimper at the head of an army. When Ivar finds her in the clutches of death, he suddenly realizes she matters far more than his injured pride and sexual desire. He will do anything to save her and give up everything to make her his.

angies review


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

Before you even begin to read Ivar and fall in lust…er….love with him you MUST read book 1in the series.  If not, there are parts of the story you will not understand but besides that, why would you skip out on a hot Viking story???

SO Ivar is feeling caged.  He is confused by his brothers need to wed the duchess when he can just take and claim.  Ivar doesn’t seem to think any woman will be able to tame his heart….but he hasn’t met feisty, stubborn, heard-headed Lady Emma yet!!

Lady Emma is not thrilled with her father going behind her back to betroth her to a beast of a man all to secure his lands from a Viking attack.  When the Vikings DO attack and kill her father, Emma is left to treaty with them. She is stunned that the duchess is actually talking about them kindly…how can that be?  They are beasts for sure.

The chemistry and the banter between the two is great.  Ivar wants to teach Emma a lesson for humiliating him but at the same time the thought of pushing her off on another burns his soul.  Emma wants to hate the Viking but the more she gets to know him and his lineage, the more her heart warms to him.

I am a huge fan of historical and this book made my heart so happy.  I loved how this story overlapped the first book and can’t wait for book 3.  The last Viking brother needs a HEA too right????

#Review – The Devil (Devil’s Renegade MC #1.5) by Kim Jones


synopsisFor years, Marty, the newst patch holder for the Devil’s Renegades MC, has been attracted to the club’s little sister–Maddie. And like all his brothers before him, Marty has been warned that she’s off limits.

But when the club president asks Marty to keep an eye on Maddie while he’s out of town, Marty finds himself torn between giving in to his desires and keeping his promise to the MC.

It should be easy to uphold the legacy of the club–love, loyalty and respect. But when you’re a Devil, sometimes it feels too damn good to be bad.

Melinda's Review

I saw this short story by Kim Jones and jumped in. I had a moment and didn’t realize it was part of a series I have not read yet. Well after reading this I will rectify that.  This was a quick read and I enjoyed every second of it.

Marty is asked to keep an eye on Maddie but knows it is hands off. Even though he has been attracted to her for a while can he keep his hands off her even when she is testing him every chance she gets.  She knows the hands off rule too but she enjoys the response she gets from him. Can he resist her and stay loyal to his club and brothers or is their temptation too much.

I absolutely loved Maddie he spunk and sass is wonderful. Although to know why she is just starting to let this side of herself out again I’m going to have to go back and read the start of the series to get her back story. I enjoyed seeing Marty hold back his feelings but the bar scene was great man he is going to have his hands full keeping an eye on Maddie. She is going to keep him on his toes and want to make him punish her in more than one way *wink* *wink*.

I am ready to read the rest of this story to find out where sit will go. The way Kim Jones tells a story you never know how it will end. So looking forward for more Maddie and Marty.

#Review – Ravage MC Boxset by Ryan Michele


synopsis**Ravage MC Box Set**
Includes: Ravage Me, Seduce Me, Consume Me, Satisfy Me & Rattle Me

Ravage Me (Ravage MC#1) http://bit.ly/RavageMe-Amz
After spending the last two years stuck behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit, Harlow ‘Princess’ Gavelson’s time inside has finally come to an end, and she’s ready for revenge. Unfortunately, being the daughter to the Vice President of the Ravage Motorcycle Club cuts into her plans, as orders must be followed. Trying to settle back into this life is proving difficult when the tables are turned and the woman who framed her is out for blood. Lucky for Princess, growing up in a MC has taught her how to hold her own.
After spending years in hell overseas, Donavon ‘Cruz’ came home to lose the very thing he went into hell for, sending him to the darkest moments of his life. Joining Ravage two years ago was his safe haven, and he protects his family at all costs.
When a dark-haired bombshell struts into the club’s shop, he’s caught off guard but immediately knows she’s the one he’d do anything for. Tough as nails, and taking no crap from anyone, he’s captivated by a woman who could handle this life. Trying to meet the needs of the MC business and follow his heart proves to be difficult when the two collide, and lives are at stake.
Can these two find a way to be together, or will the needs of Ravage cost them everything, including their lives?

Seduce Me (Ravage MC#2) http://bit.ly/SeduceMe-Amz
Casey Alexander grew up part of the Ravage Motorcycle family since the day she was abandoned by her mother and thrown into her father’s lap. Always seeing herself as an outsider, she spent her whole life trying to fit in, but never really succeeding. When she loses her beloved father, the utter aloneness engulfs her, leaving her searching for solace in the one man she’s always craved. Confessing her love for him only results in devastation when he pushes her away. Convinced she needs a fresh start, she leaves everything behind in order to mend her broken heart and begin building a future without him.
Gage Thomas (G.T.) Gavelson fell in love with his Angel when he was just a pint sized kid. Both beautiful and smart, he always felt she deserved so much better than him. Growing up beside her in the club only continued to test his will power, until one night, he gave into temptation. Realizing he couldn’t allow himself to hold her back from the life she deserved, he pushed her away, allowing her to believe she would never be enough for him. Letting her go had been the hardest thing he’d ever done. Even though he’d thought it’d been the right thing to do, not a day goes by that misery doesn’t consume him for it.
When a tragic shootout occurs, everything changes as once again their lives are intermingled. When you find your way back to the one person you are meant to be with, forgiveness should be easy. But sometimes, we hurt each other too much to ever be able to forgive.
Is their love strong enough to heal their pain?

Consume Me (Ravage MC#3) http://tinyurl.com/ConsumeMe-Amz
Prospect Andrew “Tug” Tugger wants two things.
One, to become a member of the Ravage Motorcycle Club, and two, Blaze, the sexy brunette whose eyes set him on fire.
Only one of those things is under his control, and he is done waiting.
It’s time to take what he wants.
Blaze has been running from her tragic past for over four years. She is finally feeling settled, after stripping her way through school and building a life in Sumner, her first safe haven. She keeps everyone at arm’s length, afraid to let anyone discover the secrets she holds within.

Melinda's ReviewI sat and read this entire box set in a matter of a few days and love the fact that I could go from one book right on to the next. Let me tell you once I started it I could not set it down. I would read until my eyes shut and it was the first thing I picked up in the morning. The suspense of what the club was going though and the stories of all the guys and their women had me turning these pages so fast.

Each of these stories had their own WOW factor in Ravage Me Harlow is a badass that not only talks a big talk but would back it up with her fists no matter who it was even a brother. She rides her own bike and knows how to ride it *wink wink*. Cruz is the only one she would let subdue her. In Seduce Me Casey is the daughter of a fallen brother and Harlow’s BFF. She has had a thing for GT, Harlow’s brother, but GT has been HOT and Cold towards her. Never feeling like she belonged and was a burden she packed up and left.  However, when things go bad Casey is pulled back home and things heat up between GT and Casey.  Consume Me is about Blaze, a dancer at X, who is hiding from her past meets up with Tug. These two were great Blaze determined to keep her past a secret and never let a man in and Tug determined to make Blaze his was off the charts. The chemistry between Blaze and Tug was blazing HOT. Satisfy Me is a valentine’s day novella telling three separate stories about Tug/Blaze, Cruz/Princess, and GT/Angle’s account of the day from each couples POV. I Loved being able to catch up with each couple. All I can say is each of the ladies had a special day and surprise planned for each of their men. Although some of the guys outdid themselves remembering the day the ones that didn’t or don’t like to celebrate ended up doing a great job doing something nice for their woman.  I loved Ma’s tradition for GT and Harlow and the fact that she expanded the tradition was heartwarming. Rattle Me is about Casey and GT. I so enjoyed seeing more of their story I was in tears a few times during this one but to see how their family rallied behind them and supported them was amazing. What GT does for Casey had my eyes watering and my heart fluttering.

The women are all strong, sassy, fighters and survivors. None of them back down or give up they are loyal to the club and their men. I was not only hooked on the stories between each couple but the suspense of the club issues had me turning these pages. I cannot wait for more of this series.

about the author
I’m a mom and a wife who works full time. I have a huge obsession with collecting paperbacks and reading. Becoming an author, wasn’t exactly what I set out to do, it just happened. I needed something to help me get rid of the feeling of being ‘just a mom’ or ‘just a wife’ that was consuming me and writing became that outlet. My book(s) cover some tough issues which are hard for some readers to digest. I am grateful for every single one of you who read my books.

#Review – Echo (Black Lotus #2) by E.K. Blair


The highly anticipated follow-up to Bang. Echo is the second book in the Black Lotus series.

It’s been said the longest echo ever measured lasted 75 seconds, but I can assure you, this will last much longer. The bang deafened the world around me, muting everything into nullity, allowing the reflection of its destruction to live far beyond its intended life.

It will follow me forever, destroying me–destroying you.

You want answers?

So do I.

Jo’s Review

I went into this book fearful that it would gut me. Ended it satisfied that it did.

This is the second book in the Black Lotus series and man oh man can EK Blair write a story. It left me wanting more, aching for each word, reading as fast as I could to find out what happens next. But also nervous that I would miss something. Maybe I was reading too fast. But I didn’t. Every word. Every chapter. Every single page, I breathed in. I love the way EK writes. I can’t quite explain it but I feel like she’s talking to me. Although I haven’t met her in person (yet), I can almost hear her telling me the story.

There is just something about this trilogy. It opens up that darkness inside of you, leaving you wondering if maybe you’re a little dark too. Maybe you can relate to the characters. Maybe this book speaks so loudly to you, that it scares you.

The story line in this book falls right after Bang, which I really enjoyed. I’ve been reading this one right after the other so I can still feel what’s going on and not forget. Although with this series, I don’t think I’ll ever forget what these first two books have done to me. I won’t look at a dark book the same again.

EK Blair, you are truly amazing and have a way of showcasing the pain, heartache, utter sorrow, happiness and of course more in the words you write. I could feel the emotions dripping off the pages. My heart hurt for these characters in a way no other book has ever been able to do.

I now sit here, wondering what lays in store for me when I read Hush. But a part of me doesn’t want this dark torturous ride to end. So for that, I thank you.
