READ AN EXCERPT FROM HYDE’S ABSOLUTION

 

I tore my attention from Hyde and gave it back to Tatum when she said, “I’ll call you tomorrow.”

Hyde’s presence had pretty much wiped all coherent thought from my mind, so I simply nodded and murmured, “Okay.”

As she and Nitro walked away from us, Hyde moved closer. His scent almost hypnotised me, if that was even possible. Looking down at me, he said, “What are you drinking?” The husky tone of his voice was like the final nail in my coffin. He could lead me down the path to sin with that voice.

“A cosmo please.”

He turned to the waiting bartender and ordered drinks before shifting his gaze back to me. His body was so damn close it almost pressed against mine. His eyes dropped to my chest. “You weren’t made to be subtle, were you, sugar?”

“Can’t say that word’s in my vocabulary, no.” The way he was devouring my body told me I’d made the best decision when I bought the black dress I wore tonight. Knee length with a plunging neckline and accentuated with a belt around my waist, it clung to every curve I had. My girls were up and proudly out, just the way I liked them. I mean, if you had it, flaunt it, right? And I’d had the red in my hair touched up that afternoon. It hung in lazy vivid red curls to just below my breasts. I wasn’t sure which part of me he thought wasn’t subtle, but I guessed it had something to do with my dress by the way he seemed unable to draw his gaze from my body.

Finally he found his way back up to my face. The heat flashing in his eyes shot a round of lust through my veins. Good God, this man, though. I wondered if he had any idea of the storm he caused within me. “Don’t ever add it.” If what he said didn’t make my legs sway a little, the forceful, gravelly way he said it did.

The bartender placed our drinks on the counter, distracting us from each other. Hyde dropped some cash on the bar, took a mouthful of his whisky and looked back at me while I got down as much of my drink as I could in one mouthful. God knew, I needed it. I could stand my ground with any man, but Hyde had a way of catching me off guard.

“You calm down after that thing about owing me money this morning?” And there he went, flipping my feelings about him on their head.

I fixed him with a look that let him know I wasn’t impressed. “I didn’t have anything to calm down from.”

“You seemed all worked up about it.”

I threw some more of my cocktail down my throat. “I wasn’t.” But I was getting there now, that was for sure.

He drank some more whisky, keeping his eyes steady on mine. “Okay.”

Okay? Oh no he didn’t. He didn’t get to end a conversation with that bullshit. “Okay? Seriously, you’re going to end with that?”

“It seemed pointless to argue.”

I finished my drink and placed the empty glass down with some force. Sliding off my stool, I said, “We weren’t arguing. I was simply telling you like it was.”

“Yeah, I’ve picked that up about you.”

My eyes practically popped out of their sockets. “Picked up what about me?”

“That you like to tell men like it is.”

“I do not! You just have this way of pushing my buttons. I feel like it’s you, not me.”

His lips twitched. “Sugar, if I knew which buttons I was pushing, I’d push them some more. I never said I didn’t like the way you told me how it was.”

I snatched my bag off the bar. I needed a moment to get my thoughts under control. In the space of seconds I’d switched from wanting him to wanting to smack him to wanting him again. My mind needed a break from the whiplash. I took a step away from the bar and said, “I’ll have another cosmo.”

Without waiting for his response, I headed in the direction of the ladies room. I’d almost made it there when a hand slid around my waist and I was pushed up against the wall in the dark hallway. A hard body pushed against mine as the hand around my waist slid down to settle on my ass and warm breath whispered across my cheek. “My cock likes that attitude of yours. Surprised the fuck outta me, but I can’t deny I want more of it.”

The proof of his statement ground against me, sparking need all over me. Every inch of my skin blazed with desire. I gripped his shirt with both hands and found his eyes. “You and I weren’t made for each other, Hyde.”

“I’m not saying we were.”

My body went to war with my mind. It fought me kicking and screaming, desperate for what he was offering, but I didn’t want to surrender. “So what’s the point of starting something?”

He pushed his cock harder against me. “I came here against better judgement tonight. Nitro told me you’d be here and I came because I couldn’t, for the fucking life of me, get you out of my head. I want my hands on those curves of yours and my dick as far inside you as you can take it.”

#WOTR #Review #Paranormal #Shifter #TwinsieForTheDayBecky- Bearly Safe by Anya Breton

Bearly Safe (Texan Bears Book 1)

Attending a co-worker’s Halloween party dressed as a sexy fairy was the worst decision Shelby Maxwell made all week. That is until she lets her temper get the best of her in front of Dallas’s finest and ends up in the back of a police cruiser. Too bad the gorgeous jerk responsible for her bad behavior didn’t have the sense to avoid the police, himself.

When someone shoots up the party, the gorgeous jerk, Nick Kang, sprouts fur, explodes out of the police cruiser, and saves the day. Nick’s jerk streak continues as he leaves Shelby to explain what happened.

After her name is released to the press, a penitent Nick arrives to protect Shelby from the killer’s mafia associates. Close quarter guarding leads to close quarter groping and a little more intimacy than Shelby is prepared for. But it may be time to put her past behind her and accept far more than the safety Nick offers.

Review by Becky

WOW.  I loved Shelby’s foul mouth.  She just tells it like it is.  She doesn’t care what people think…oh yeah and she is an accountant.  Cracks me up.  Shelby’s personality is not the normal accountant.
Nick had an instant attraction to Shelby at the Halloween party they both attended.  They ended up handcuffed and in the backseat of a squad car.  Nick protected Shelby from being killed by gunfire.  He morphed into a bear while Shelby watched is disbelief.  Shelby was an unknown witness to corruptness and murder.  She had a target on her back.  Nick was her protector. Shelby desire for Nick grew and Nick would act hard to get…trying to get Shelby to make a heart decision.  He would leave her sexually frustrated which pissed her off even more and fired up that foul mouth of hers.
I loved the draw between Shelby and Nick even though she didn’t want to admit it.  She just wanted laid and Nick was leaving her with blue balls.  Shelby continued to need protection from the mob from the Halloween events.
Yes…our Shelby gets marked by Nick and man does she love it.  She knows that now she is doomed.  No other man will do and she is now Nick’s.  She enjoys every “o” moment of it.
So, Anya, what do you have in store in Book #2?

 

Anya writes stories with romantic slants. Sometimes they’re extra naughty and sometimes they’re sickeningly sweet.

She reviews books on a different, secret profile.

 

#Review – Lone Wolf (Olento Research Series #2) – Sarah Noffke

Lone Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research Book 2)

When one man can’t reconcile with the wolf inside of him, he knows all he can do is run. Take thewolf with him and run away from those he doesn’t want to hurt. But will that be his greatest mistake?

The pack is coming together, but one wolf would rather be alone with his demons than united as a team. In the second installment in the Olento Research series, Connor runs from the Lucidite Institute and his pack, fearful of what the wolf will make him do. All of the men describe feeling the impulses, thedesires that are unquenchable, coursing through them. But Connor knows he has a lesser chance of resisting those impulses due to his background. And after what he almost did to Adelaide, he can’t risks it happening again.

However, Mika hasn’t given up and he’s more driven to retrieve the werewolves he knows belong to him. He plants a mole in the Institute and thengoes to work creating a werewolf meant to catch other werewolves. One that is stronger, faster and bigger than those in the original pack.

Meanwhile Zephyr is quickly following leads and tracking down members of the pack, but will he be one step behind Olento Research? Can he rescue his team and stop Olento Research before they capture their would-be assassins?

Lone Wolf is darker and more grueling than its predecessor. However, it’s also a story about characters who are so beautiful with all their many flaws. It’s a story about how the very best intentions can still lead to the worst scenarios. When one intends not to hurt another, they may find that’s exactly what they’ve done.

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

This is the second book in the Olento Research series.  Adelaide is trying to round up all the werewolves before they cause anymore havoc. She was able to locate and bring a few of them to the Lucidites. However, Conner feels guilty after attacking Adelaide and runs as far as he can from her and the Lucidites finding himself falling into his old habits. Mika is not giving up he has added his own element of surprise for the wolves and Lucidites with another experiment and an unseen undercover spy.

The twist and turns mixed with the suspense and humor kept me turning pages to find out what was going to happen next. The dynamic between Adelaide “Freckles” and Rox’s “Hooker FBI Agent” had me in stitches. I see more and more of Ren coming out in Adelaide.  I enjoyed learning more about all the warewolves and watching how some are learning to accept the wolf inside them and how others just are not coexisting with theirs at all.  Absolutly love when you get a glimpse of characters from Sarah’s other series, like Dr. Dave Raydon from the Vagabond Circus Series. Oh and we get to see a little of Lucien’s powers at work too.

Sarah Noffke did a wonderful job blending her Dream travelers, warewolves, evil villain, suspense and tons of Ren like snarkiness in this book. I cannot wait for more of this series and get to know these wolves, Adelaide, and Rox better.

I bought this book from the author after meeting her at a signing plus seeing this book and thinking HEY that looks GREAT!!

SO I thought based on the blurb that this book was going to be kinda dark.  Don’t get me wrong, the subject matter of domestic violence is not pretty or light to touch on but it wasn’t the dubious consent kinda book I half expected…SHEW!!

Elena is married to an AWESOME guy said no woman ever.  She is subjected to daily abuse by him.  When he shows up at home one night and tells her to get dressed up, she thinks she finally has pleased him.  She finally is a good wife.  She is so excited to have a date with her husband even if she is ugly and fat and pasty and and and…get the picture….anyway, she dresses up and goes.  When she gets to the baseball game her spidey senses go off  that things are not ok and oy is she right.  Seems her hubby owes a lot of money to a loan shark named Ashton annnd well, he has pimped his wife out to clear the debit.  WHAT!!???  Yup!!

Ashton is stunned stupid but was raised by a good family.  He takes Elena not to use with as he wishes like her hubby told him but to help her overcome this abuse and move on with her life to be happy with someone else.

We see Ashton helping her gain her strength and her independence but we also see his desire for this woman.  She challenges him and makes him want more than just this life.

Elena loves the new woman she has become and is shocked when Ashton reveals his desires for HER…the ugly, fat, horrible house wife ……what!!!

The story is a lot of them figuring out what they are and then coming to terms with their feelings.  Ya see Elena only has 3 months but that time is ticking away.  Her husband is none too thrilled to see his wife happy and in caring hands so he starts to make some waves and boy is in gonnna pay for that….

The book was great.  I loved it to pieces and cant wait to start Miller, Ashton’s brothers book!!

#WOTR #Regency #Historical #Review #Giveaway – The Misfortune of Lady Lucianna by Christina McKnight

Title: The Misfortune of Lady Lucianna

Series: The Undaunted Debutantes Series (Book Two)

Author: Christina McKnight

Genre: Historical Romance, Regency England

Release Date: June 13, 2017

Word Count: 45,000

Quick-witted hellion Lucianna Constantine has no doubt who was responsible for the death of her dear friend. And she will stop at nothing to expose his transgressions—and those of every despicable man in London. Lucianna has witnessed the cruelty of London’s beau monde her entire life…starting with her own father. So she is more than willing to singlehandedly take down every vile man that crosses her path.

Roderick Crofton, the Duke of Montrose, had his entire family fortune stolen when his father trusted the wrong men. After a scandalous article surfaces in the London Daily Gazette, written by the notorious Mayfair Confidential columnist, Roderick finds himself financially destitute, without a betrothed, and lacking the means to find the lords responsible for duping his sire. With little option left, Roderick has only one choice: find another wealthy heiress to wed. His quest brings him to Lady Lucianna Constantine, and soon, he can’t deny that he wants her for more than just her dowry.

However, Luci has secrets that could change everything. And when Roderick uncovers what those confidences entail, it could mean misfortune for all involved.

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

Oh Luci……You so got side swiped by love that is for sure!!  LOL

Lucianna was not going to stop searching for a clue against the dastardly man who killed her friend.  She will not give up even though Edith is happily engaged and Ophelia is too busy reading then investigation.  She will not fail her deceased friend.

Roderick was too side swiped by love.  He was bound and determined to destroy the person who ruines his chance at find who stole from his family.  He stumbles on Luci in a fencing match and he couldn’t help but fall in love with her!  She is feisty and challenges him every step of the way but he won’t have it any other way.

I loved the almost disgust that Roderick feels for Luci’s sire and his treatment of her. His desire to protect her is what is his “down fall” into loving her.  Luci is going to catch the man who ruined her friend’s happiness and took her life.  When Roderick becomes an ally in her journey she is confused and finds herself even more drawn to the man.

I gotta say, I loved how Luci was so stubborn and this book is like a taming of the shrew updated version.  Roderick thinks taming Luci will save her but in fact it saves him.

I can’t wait for Ophelia’s book!!

#WOTR #Review – Whisper Forever by CA Harms

 

WHISPER FOREVER by CA Harms is LIVE! 

 

Whisper Forever by C.A. Harms 

 Contemporary Romance

I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept.

Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once. 

In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything.

That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone. 

I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough—no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery, and never again would a boy break my heart.

But the moment Lucas returned after four years, acting like we could pick up where we left off, that strength inside me shifted. The more I tried to ignore his efforts, the harder he fought.

How can one simple word whispered by one man mean so very much?

“Forever.”

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

This is a 2nd chance love/Friends to Lovers story and it kept me from the very 1st.  I sat and counted put it down.  The story of Lucas and Maddie was full of angst and hurt with a side of chemistry and arrogance.

Maddie declared her love for Lucas at age 9.  Well of course Lucas being a 10-year-old boy thought she was super gross for suggesting such a statement.  Even though Maddie’s heart was broken and kept getting broken by Lucas, she still couldn’t shake the love she has for him.

Lucas thought of Maddie as his friend. His buddy.  When he grew more and more popular he didn’t have time for his best friend anymore. He has willing and able females to keep him entertained.  Football and big money was all he knew and all he cared for.  When the karma train kick his butt back to the small town they are both from, THAT is when he opens his eyes and SEES his best friend as more than just a buddy but a WOMAN!!

I loved seeing Lucas grovel and chase Maddie but I also loved seeing he finally give in and accept his words of love and of caring.  I think the emotions Maddie feels over not wanting to be a 2nd choice are legit because I would feel the same way.  The couple go through a lot in this book but the epilogue was awesome and I loved that we got 2 epilogues essentially.  We get a his and her’s POV.  Each one makes you hear t a bit gooier then it already was.

C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

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

Ok I think that this is my new favorite book in the series…..EEEP!! I loved loved loved this friends to lover’s story. I loved the angst and the chemistry that we get from the two characters. I loved how each man was struggling as a single father who is devoted and loves his boys without end. But what I really loved was seeing two broken men find love with each other.

Cam’s story starts with the loss of his much-loved husband. His friend and heterosexual best friend, Kade, is there the whole way. He helps Cam pick up the pieces for himself and his boys. Kade is a man stuck in a loveless marriage. He turns to his best friend Cam when he realizes his marriage is over.

The two men develop a great friendship and support system but a night of drinking turns to some open and honest communication where Kade tells a little secret that will alter the men forever.

I loved how they two men were so afraid of what they were feeling and how they both took things slow. The small touches and first kiss….scorching for sure. I loved who they were both scared to try because of messing up their friendship and support system but also scared to let a once in a life time love go.

The story definitely tugged on my heart a few times along with made me stop to fan myself because DANG it got HOT really quick!!!

A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children and a husband before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.
Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.
A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.
A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.

#CoverReveal – Sweet Disaster by Sierra Hill

Sweet Disaster
Sierra Hill
Publication date: TBA
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Kady:

My life is a complete and utter disaster.

One major screw up after another.

In other words – I’m trouble.

I attempted college, but made a mess of that scene, too. Chalk it up to yet another disappointment in my parents’ ever-growing list of Kady failures.

Deciding I needed an escape from reality, my best friend and I flew off to Europe, where we were going to have the time of our lives.

The only problem with that plan is that I ran out of money after two weeks, and now I’m stuck in Florence, Italy with no means of getting home.

See? Trouble finds me wherever I go.

Gavin:
All I ever wanted to do was play basketball.

It’s all I’m good at.

I bypassed college and went straight to the pros. I’ve been playing overseas in Italy for six months, gaining fame, fans and having fun.
There’s only one problem. I miss home. I’m not too big to admit I’m homesick for my family and friends.
But that all changed when I heard from Cade Griffin, a former college hoops star. He called and asked me to rescue his sister, Kadence, who’s stranded and alone here in Florence.

Seems easy enough, right?
Except for the fact that Kady Griffin is gorgeous, completely off-limits and a sweet disaster waiting to happen all over my life.

Author Bio:

Since writing and publishing her first book in 2014, Sierra Hill has found her creative passion in writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain, who are constantly shouting for their own love stories to be told.

Sierra frequently indulges in what some might consider to be an unhealthy dose of reading, dark chocolate candy, and way too much coffee. She hates cold weather, and frequently finds herself traveling around the country to see her favorite live musicians in concert.

Sierra resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of twenty years and her long-haired, German Shepherd. She is currently working on her next book.
