In this second book in the Greg Dorn Series, Denver police officer Dorn wakes up one day to discover he is handcuffed to a bed in a
quasi-medical facility recovering from some serious wounds. He is in severe pain and has no memory of how he got there. As his memory slowly returns, Dorn is obsessed with getting home to his wife and daughter but finds he is being
held captive. He discovers that someone, somehow has tampered with his identity—and his head. He is now being prepped by his captor to become a
“soldier” in a killing scheme intended to radicate the enemy. “The General” fails to realize the extent to which he has perfected his new killing machine. Using his new skills, Greg escapes, jumps on a cargo train and heads home…but his homecoming is nothing like he expected.
B.A. Sherman’s passion is writing psychological thrillers.
He lives in Colorado with his wife and daughter and, when not writing novels, he is a police officer in Colorado. He has been in law enforcement for 24 years. The Test is his first full-length novel.
The short stories and books he writes are based on experiences he’s had over the years, with “a heaping spoonful of
fiction,” he says. He has published one short story, The Truth, currently available on Amazon.com.
When he’s not writing and working, Brad enjoys hunting,
camping, fishing and skiing. These are areas he plans to write about in the future, perhaps incorporating them into a thriller or two.
My life was mapped out and planned to perfection. I knew exactly what I wanted and where I was going, until I was thrust into his world and ripped from mine. In the blink of an eye everything shattered, proving to be nothing more than a cheap illusion. Now I’m living in this twisted form of hell, where enemies and friends are one and the same. I thought I wanted perfection. Now I don’t know what I want – perhaps not even my own freedom.
I’m the definition of wrong. I’m violent, I’m greedy, and I stop at nothing to win. I’m a notorious bookie and in my game paying with your life is not just a figure of speech. You lose, collect. I take whatever you have. She’s collateral for a debt, and if that debt’s not paid someone will die. This should be just business, so why can’t I kill her?
Everything is not always as it seems.
I received this book from the authors for an honest review.
So when Stevie told me about this book I was like HRMMMMM. She is great at writing filthy rockers and awesome paranormals sooooo how is this dark romance gonna be??? In once word : HOLY-MUTHER-OF-GOD!! OK so I guess that is more of a phrase right???
This book is a hot mess and by that I mean a good hot mess. Ria/Victoria is a soon to be doctor who is dating Mr. Perfect soon to be doctor but spoiled brat Euan. At dinner someone shows to collect the money he owes JP the bookie ANNNNND he throws them is WOMAN as collateral?? UHMMMM who does that? Oh a DB that is who.
So Ria is taken as a hostage to JP/Jude/yummy hottie bad boy. He is NOT happy his lackey took a woman as a hostage. He doesn’t do hostages. He just kills ya if you don’t pay up but not a hostage. So as anyone would do, Ria fights and tries to get away. This part of the book was my favorite. You get to see scrappy Ria fighting with Jude and people no one fights against Jude!
As the story progresses, we find out some stuff about the “awesome” boyfriend and his family connections. Then Jude and newly named Tor (Jude hates Ria) start to connect and form an understanding along ….with…..falling….in….love????? Best scene of the book, Tor drunk in the strip club…CLASSIC humor!!!
The book ends with a major cliffy but not the cliff you expected???? I loved it and cannot wait for the next book. I need more Jude in my life!!

I enjoy the escape writing allows, and fully enjoy weaving a tale and creating crazy characters. When I’m not writing I am cuddling with my two little girls, and listening to my husband play his guitar (swoon). Some trivial fact about me would be: I love the color pink, I adore sloths, and I have a thing for British accents. My biggest fear is completely irrational, but I can’t help it. The thought of the pending zombie apocalypse absolutely creeps me out. I honestly can not imagine a more horrifying way to be blotted out of existence than by the hand of a decaying, oozing corpse.
I hope if you read my books you will enjoy them and will be sucked into the little world I have created with words. After all, writing is the most amazing magic trick in the universe because it allows the reader to crawl inside the mind of the author. If you really think about that … it’s kind of disturbing.
Former model Chalise Boudreau returns to Louisiana after ten years and faces an uncertain future. Watching her budget, she’s living with her mother and plans to open a luxury salon, but she fears the community sees her homecoming as a failing, and she knows any malicious gossip will jeopardize her success.
Once bad-boy, now entrepreneur Chaz Riboucheaux is home and trying to rebuild his old reputation. He believes one of his companies, the Magnolia May, a pirate ship, can make Ascension a tourist destination, but the mayor refuses to grant him a lease at the city’s dock.
Chalise and Chaz come face to face at a Twelfth Night party. Years ago, he stood her up and left her brokenhearted. Now her brain is at war with her heart, but her body has a mind of its own. As Chaz leads her across the dance floor, he knows when the music stops it won’t be the end of their waltz. He has questions only she can answer, and he won’t stop until he gets what he wants.
“Forget him,” her adoring father had said at graduation when he spoiled her by replacing her Mazda with a Mercedes. Then he sent her off to modeling school in New York where luck found her. She quickly signed with an agent. Her career took off in a flash, and the thrill of modeling turned into a drug for a year.
But like a catfish flopping around in a boat, her life flip-flopped when her father died suddenly of a heart attack. When she and her mother discovered the estate was nearly bankrupt, Chalise made a new plan. That fall, she started college in New York City and continued modeling. Often when studying, her thoughts would drift. Though they were miles apart, she dreamed of what could have been with Chaz. She hadn’t wanted to believe the worst of him, but her pain poked her imagination in the most antagonistic ways.
Now he was back. She was home.
The pain of the past stabbed at her. Her chest tightened. He could live anywhere. Why had he picked Ascension? His nearness created a tension she couldn’t avoid. She would die of a thousand little cuts. No one need ever know how much she still cared for Chaz. Including her mother.
He was an enigma. An aloofness replaced his tough outer shell. He moved with confident masculine grace—much more appealing than any male model she’d ever dated. He looked way too sexy in a pirate costume. And then there were his business connections. The boy had savvy and brains.

Jett Vaughn has one thing on his mind these days – Presley Hart. He will do anything it takes to make her his. At least, he thinks he will.
Presley Hart wants one thing in life – a man who will make her his number one. After being married to a man who never put her first, she swore she’d never settle for second best again. At least, she thought she wouldn’t.
When Jett’s life comes crashing down around him, his flaws are laid bare for all to see. Presley stands by her man but there’s only so much she can do to help him. She loves him and wants to be with him but she has her limits and Jett’s about to reach them.
In the midst of hurt, loss and destruction, can love win out? Can a man who is struggling to find his way, show the woman he loves just how much he wants her to be the one? Or is there only so much a heart can take before enough’s enough?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
EEEP. I finished book 1 and jumped right into book 2. Jett and Presley are a great couple to read….yes you wanna kick their butts every now and again buuuut a fun couple none the less.
The book starts right where the novella stops. We see Jett and Presley dealing with the news about her marriage to another less then famous rocker Lennon. Jett is still uber caveman, alpha over his new woman but he is ok with what she hid from him. Presley is all in with Jett. She never thought she would agree to date another rocker but Jett is NOT Lennon.
This book our couples faces A LOT of drama We see them doing a good job coping, fighting, making up and then trying to figure out the next step. I really liked Presley because she put Jett in his place. She was honest with his bandmates and manager Tom. She was only there for Jett. She could care about anything else. Her job was him and how to help him along. She was always telling Jett what he didnt want to hear and sometimes this caused friction BUT she was never untrue to her character. Jett is a romantic at heart but at times his fear of loss made him do things that made us and Presley sad. However, true to form out rocker would come back and grovel like the best of them!! LOL
The band mates are awesome guys. I cant wait to read West’s story but I really want to know more about Van. What the heck is up with him and his anger with Jett????

You know what they say about wishing for the impossible.
My name is Talia Perizkova, and time is usually my best friend. It’s been good to me in the months since I left the man who nearly killed me, and I’ve returned the favor by working hard at Stone Global Corp, even getting promoted to lead one of SGC’s key expansion projects.
There’s only one mar on that record. The night I told time to kiss my ass, during a business trip to Vegas with my bosses–yes, my bosses–and experienced a night for the record books with them both. But what happened in the City of Sin refuses to stay there for any of us, and time has joined forces with his pal, karma, to exact payback where it most matters. In my heart.
Fletcher Ford. Drake Newland. They’re two of the business world’s sexiest, most sought-after bachelors, and I’ve fallen for them both. Their passion is everything I crave, their protection is everything I need–and their love is everything my orthodox family will never let me accept.
The solution, according to them, is simple. One man steps down, so at least two of us are happy.
I could find a way…
But sacrifices are rarely simple, and one plus one doesn’t always equal happily-ever-after. That means all three of us have some huge, hard decisions to make. Take a chance on this rare love we’ve been given…or give in to fear, and lose each other forever?
OMG!! HAWT HAWT HAWT!! I am a giant fan of this series and these authors. I loved Kil and Claire’s stories but have loved the additional side characters stories as well. When we got a glimpse of these three in then Vegas Anthology, I was fanning myself!! WOWZERS and yummy!!
Drake, Tolly and Fletcher are a combustible MFM trio. Drake and Fletchers are “brothers from another mother” and they both meet and set their sights on Natalia AKA Tolly. She is the perfect woman for them. We see how they “get together” in the Vegas anthology but now it has a couple weeks after the fact and Tolly is freaking out. I mean these guys are EVERY WOMAN’S DREAM so why would they want her?? Plain and simple frump girl? I loved how they went to force a confrontation out of Tolly…I was cracking up. These guys were soooo outta place and super uncomfortable but the will endure anything for their future and that is what Tolly is…their future!!
Tolly loves these guys but her family is not having it. Her insecurities will not let her be happy and then neither will their other one night stands…they remind Tolly of what she isn’t and what they are…BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT and PERFECT. Hey thanks Tolly’s ex Gavin for the mind games! You’re a peach!!
When the trio finally gives it a 110% all in, someone steps forward to shatter the HEA for the group. The remaining 2 are left lost and confused. Will they ever get back to the happy they had or was it all an illusion?
I wanted to kick Tolly’s butt in the beginning because she was soooooooooo unsure of herself but then when I saw her growth from the love of her men …at the gala…. yeah that showdown was awesome but the final show down at the end of the book had my heart so happy.
I loved the guys and just like Tolly I loved them both for different reasons. They both bring love and warmth to her but they also provided her with some much more.

A bit about me…
I’ve been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances–the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed–though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets…backstage passes…that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.
These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.
Victoria Blue lives in her own portion of the galaxy known as Southern California. There she finds the love and life sustaining power of one amazing sun, two unique and awe inspiring planets and three indifferent, yet comforting moons. Life is fantastic and challenging and everyday brings new adventures to be discovered. She looks forward to seeing what’s next!

Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.
Before they told us the prince was dead.

Enter Jenna McCormick, a feisty drug and alcohol counselor, a woman with her own share of troubles.

SLASH AND BURN (Book 5)
Is theirs a match made in heaven…
Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.
Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.
You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.
Seduction has never been so sweet! The New York Timesbestselling author of the Cold Fury series—Alex, Garrett, Zack,and Ryker—returns with the first novel in a hot new trilogy.
Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner.
The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the naïve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever.
Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!
I received this book from NetGalley for a Review.
WOW OK this was a bit darker then I was expecting. I like Dark but I dunno that I was really ready for the dark place that Sawyer took me……I mean I knew that the book was about and what happened to the main character in the beginning of the story but YOWZERS!! I kinda hurt my tender soul a little for the character……Sela…Omg what she does for revenge……The heroine puts herself through so much for revenge on what happens to her.
I really can’t give a lot away because this book is so deep and twisted and dark and will destroy your soul a little bit but trust me it’s a good destroying..LOL You will not be able to put this book down. You will need to keep reading because Sela falls for the worst man of all and we need to know WTF is going to happen. What is going on? How can this end? Will this end badly…of course it will end badly who are we kidding!!!
I was hoping with my happy HEA white light heart that Beck and Sela will come out unscathed but lets be honest…THIS is not a happy romance story people. Its dark and brutal.
Will I read book 2…OMG YES…Will I be prepared to be destroyed even more? OMG YES YES YES
Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.
A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.
Sawyer likes her Bloody Mary’s strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
Here at Lark and Gannet, you’ll work directly under the partners, being groomed by the most powerful, all-male partnership to handle an exclusive clientele. While within The Firm, your level of training goes deeper, requiring more…varied tasks, which you’re obligated to perform to your Master’s pleasing.Are you nervous? You should be. Chase Larkin has chosen you to be his submissive.Alexis Wilde, will you submit?
All I wanted was to save my brother. Something my parents failed to do—and then, I failed him also. As an introvert, getting ahead in the cutthroat law firm required a level of ego stroking I didn’t possess, and that meant my talents were overlooked. Until Chase Larkin noticed me.
My erotic fantasy come to life, Chase is all powerful, all man, all dominant. In one night, he changed my life irrevocably. Now I’m ruined, destined to crave him forever. His scent. His taste. His brutal touch…
If I never followed him to his office that night, then none of this would’ve happened. A serial rapist on the prowl. Our lives in jeopardy. And only a moment—one pivotal moment—to decide our fate. His life or mine.
*This is a full length, standalone dark romance with an antihero that may trigger uncomfortable feelings for the reader. The court proceedings are centered around a rape case. Although there is no onscreen rape in this book, there are instances of rough sex and violent debasement for the main character.
Being with Chase—even for the short time that I have—has suspended my internal clock. Days feels like years, minutes like days, seconds like hours. I can’t accurately compare it to anything I’ve ever experienced, as I’ve never experienced anything or anyone like him before.
I’ve watched him at a distance for a year, as an observer, fantasizing. Longing. Desiring…but never once confusing my reality with expectation. He was just like a fictional character. I was under no delusion that I’d ever become a part of his reality.
The moment he touched me, I changed. There was no impact on him; I absorbed the shock. I’m also under no delusion that I am anything more to him than what he desires for me to be.
I am his object of derision.
I am his.
And the glimpses he gives me beneath his rigid exterior is enough to sustain me. Like last night. I’m as equally aroused by his brutal touch as I am by his tender caress. I crave his harsh declarations just as I desire to hear his whispered confessions.
If you’re to love someone, love them wholly. You can’t break them down into pieces. Compartmentalizing. Trying to puzzle a person into the perfect, ideal someone. If I belong to Chase, then I belong to the monster as much as I do the man.
I’m just unsure of which one will finally break me.
