#REVIEW – Before the Lie by KD Robichaux

It was love at first sight.
Not just for me, but for Corbin as well.
Our eyes locked across the room, and that was all she wrote.
But we didn’t rush things.
We wanted to do it right.
After all, we would spend the rest of our lives together.
The love of my life.
My soul mate.
He was the intense and fiercely protective soldier,
and I was his doting and faithful lover.
I found my happily ever after.
This was our story…
Before the Lie

Note: This story is not suitable for persons under the age of 18.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

First thing I have to say is that I NEED the next book. STAT! This boo…wow. I really had no idea what I was getting into and that was fine with me. I read the blurb but I liked that it didn’t give a lot away.

Corbin Lowe. Military boy who had a difficult past and has a darkness to him that I really can’t wait to see more of. Alpha. Tattoos. Bad boy. Military. Enough said.

Vivian Brown is an innocent girl and while she may be timid and shy, there is definitely a sass to her that Corbin can’t get enough of. I found while reading about Vi and when she truly opens up, it brought me back to highschool and how shy I was. I could relate and I really like that in a heroine. She’s strong but also knows when she needs a strong man to protect her.

The chemistry between Vi and Corbin is off the charts. While this is the first book I’ve read by KD, it won’t be the last. KD pulls you in with her words and while you think everything is fine and cozy, she rips that blanket right out from under you and yells “JUST KIDDING”. I love it. Makes my dark heart a very very happy heart.

I’m so excited for the next book and I can’t wait to see where KD takes this story. So many things could happen but right now I really want to see Corbin’s darkness come to light. Things need to happen. People need to get theirs. And I need the second book in my hands already.


#Review – Stolen Innocence by @authMelodyAnne #Dark #Romance


Every master was once a student – every woman was once a child …

What makes a person forget their entire identity? What makes them become someone else? What makes them desire pain … control … and ultimately pleasure? It’s not anything that happens overnight, over even in a few weeks. Tragedy beyond what a human can possibly imagine will forever alter Mary’s future.

Mary’s life is boring, conservative and typical. She wants adventure, thrills and so much more. But she will soon learn to be careful what to wish for when she’s taken against her will and thrust into the twisted world of a powerful man who doesn’t care if she lives or dies.

When Mary starts becoming Elena, she does find a savior, but is he truly the person who will protect her, or will he be the one to escort her straight into the pits of hell?

Forgetting who she is or where she belongs, she learns she can trust no one, rely on only herself, and fall further than she ever thought possible. She will become someone else and the cycle will begin. She will become the person who will eventually change the life of so many others. Some might say the change is good, the violence is necessary. And some will cry for this tragedy that should have been stopped.

Just when you think you know how it all came about, how it will end, you will be floored again by who can be trusted … and who can’t.

Note from the author:

This book isn’t anything like what I’ve written before. I had a dream, the opening scene of this book, actually. And I woke up and lay there for a while, and still couldn’t push it away, so I got up, wrote the first chapter. Then I lay back down and was back out of bed within fifteen minutes, where I gave up on sleep and sat at my computer all night and all the next day until my eyes wouldn’t stay open anymore. Then for the next week, all I did was eat and sleep (minimally) and the first draft was born. I was so emotionally drained from it, I put it away for a month, and then came back to it and went back into the world of Elena.

My question was, what makes someone enter into a lifestyle of BDSM? What makes them enjoy pain? Enjoy being degraded? Then I realized, it’s not a matter of enjoyment necessarily. It’s a matter of your world spinning out of control. And this is a way to ground yourself. Elena has become so special to me. The first book is tragic and I cried several times while writing it. The second book, she starts to find herself, and in the third book … well, the third book leaves your mouth hanging open. I hope you enjoy this journey with me. It’s been an emotional one.

This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.

Stolen Innocence by Melody Anne

So, this is one of those “dirty” Melody Anne books. She has a way of making them so freakin’ dirty without using any naughty words… seriously. I’ve never read any other author that can do that. It’s definitely for the 18+ crowd. I’m going to go as far as people with triggers from rape, abuse, and anything related, don’t read it! It’s unquestionably a dark, gritty read. So you people who one starred it because it was “too dark” and “degrading” Holy hell people, you were warned in the synopsis for cripesake… Does this ring a bell???????? “This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.” “Explicit scenes of abuse.” Duh… you no like dark, you no read book… but don’t read it when you knew it was dark then give it a bad review because you don’t like dark books… You people make my ass twitch!

Mary is you typical 16 going on 17 year old. She’s kidnapped and brainwashed to believe she’s Elena the sex slave. She’s one tough cookie and for good reason. The men “grooming” her for the Master are vicious to say the least. She learns quickly that keeping her mouth shut keeps her from getting beat.

I’m still not sure how much the other characters are going to play a part in the next installments so I won’t mention them. I will say this, not everyone is who them seem and I’ve deemed most untrustworthy. Be careful who you put your faith in.

This is a fast paced, action packed thriller that is extremely sinister. Mmmmm, my kind of book! It’s an extremely gripping story with powerful characters and boat loads of tension. This is not, I repeat NOT for the faint of heart. Onto the next book, Forever Lost



Melody Anne is a NYT best selling author of the popular series: Billionaire Bachelors, Surrender, Baby for the Billionaire, Unexpected Hero’s, Billionaire Aviators, and some solo titles. I have a Young Adult Series; Rise of the Dark Angel.

As an aspiring author, I wrote for years, then published in 2011, finding my true calling, and a love of writing. Holding a Bachelor’s Degree in business, I love to write about strong, powerful, businessmen and the corporate world.

When I’m not writing, I spend time with my family, friends, and many pets. A country girl at heart, I love the small town and strong community I live in and am involved in many community projects.

To date, I have over 7 million book sales and have earned a spot on multiple best seller lists, including NYT’s, USA Today, WSJ, being an amazon top 100 bestselling author for 3 years in a row, as well as a Kobo and iBooks best seller. But beyond that, I just love getting to do what makes me happy – live in a fantasy world, 95% of the time.

PROMISES on January 16th
“What happened to us, Lincoln? Where did things go wrong?” she mutters
uneasily. Tears slowly find their way down her cheeks.
“I wish I had the answer, but I don’t.” My voice wavers.
“I don’t know how much longer I can keep doing this. I’m losing myself.
I hate who I’ve become,” she shakes her head regretfully.
“I hate that I’m hurting you.”
I get up and sit next to her. I place my hand under her chin, lifting
her face so I can see her. “I love you. You know that, don’t you?”
“I know you love me. That’s never been the problem.” Her faint smile
holds a touch of sadness.
How do two people that love each other repair what has been broken? Can
we? Seeing her sad is breaking me. I’m such a dumbass for not realizing how
much she’s hurting watching her best friend get something she wants so bad.
Something that I’m not willing to give her.
The ride home takes about an hour with the city traffic this time of
night. With Morgan’s hand clasped with mine we enter my apartment. The sound of
the door shutting echoes in the living room. I turn the lock and toss my keys
on the table next to the door.
I follow Morgan in to the bedroom. I lean down and place a gentle kiss
against her lips. The touch of her lips is a delicious sensation. I raise my
mouth from hers and gaze into her eyes. Christian was right. They are sad. How
haven’t I noticed how much this is affecting her?
She pushes up against me to meet my lips again. Morgan showers kisses
around my lips and along my jaw. Her breath smells sweet, like the fruity
cocktail she was drinking at the wedding reception. The kisses are slow and sensual
that drive me wild. My mouth swoops down to capture hers. She parts her lips
granting me access to her tongue. Her tongue tastes sugary. My lips recapture
hers, more demanding this time.
I pull away from her and gaze into her dark brown eyes. My hands make
their way to her face, cupping her cheeks. “I love you, Morgan,” I say against
her hips.
She bites her lip, and a groan passes through my lips. My chest heaves
uncontrollably. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve been intimate.
Slowly my fingertips pull the zipper of her dress. Once it reaches the
bottom, her strapless dress falls to the floor. Her flawless body stands before
be in a lacey black strapless bra and matching thong.
I gently outline her nipples, causing her to suck in a quick breath. Her
nipples harden immediately from being teased. I gradually work my way to the
clasp at the back undoing it. Her bra falls to the floor and I can’t help but
lean down and take her nipple into my mouth.
Her hands pull on my hair. I press kisses, feathery and light, followed
by little love bites as I make my way down her body. Morgan shivers and arches
against me. I guide her toward the bed until the back of her thighs hit the
“Lie down.”
Morgan complies and I take her breast into my mouth and suck hard. She
moans, when I bite her nipple.
When I look up, I see a mark on her breast. I sucked a little too hard.
I should feel bad, but I don’t. Instead, I feel proud. Possessive. I love
leaving my mark on Morgan.
I rip her panties off and throw them to the side.
Morgan gasps and looks down at me. “They were brand new,” she says
“They were in the way… I’ll buy you new ones.”
I continue to torture her with kisses along her stomach, her hip, then
her thighs. My hands stroke the inside of her thigh. I explore the sexy curves
that lead to her tight little ass.
“Stop teasing me,” she pleads.
When I find her clit, I suck on her sensitive bud. She cries out and
grips my hair and grinds against my face.
I lick her, kiss her, torture her with my mouth until she is chanting my
“Lincoln, oh, God.”
I smile as I bite her clit, then suck on it.
“Don’t stop. Just like that.” Her orgasm hits her hard. She pulls my
face against her and grinds against my face. Her other hand grips the sheet as
she cries out.
Her back arches off the bed and her body trembles.
I don’t give her time to recover as I make my way up her body, trailing
kisses along the way.
“Who do you belong to, Morgan? Tell me.” My voice low and demanding.
“You,” she moans “Always, you.” Her voice unsteady. She closes her eyes.
“Look at me, don’t close your eyes. I need to see your eyes. You need to
know who is doing this to you.”
She blinks, then her eyes blaze up at me.

“I’ll fight for you. Don’t give up on us.” I kiss the tip of her nose
and climb off the bed to quickly undress.

#promo – Deceit in Bloom by Jennifer Michael

Cautionary tales don’t usually have happy endings…

Raised in foster care. The sister of a whore. The fool who fell for the wrong guy.

Paisley James is all too aware that sometimes fairy tales just don’t exist.

There is no telling where hearts belong or loyalties lie when deceit is in bloom.

Author Note: Deceit in Bloom is book one of a series and ends in a BIG, dramatic cliffhanger (No joke). The story continues in book two, Vengeance in Bloom


As a child, Jennifer Michael dreamed of being an author. Life and adulting eventually pushed that dream down to a mere fantasy, which was where it stayed for years. Then, through a stroke of luck and a Kindle, she found the indie romance world, and the dream that was long ago deemed unattainable became a reality. Writing fulfills pieces of her she lost long ago.

Jennifer writes stories that range from sweet and sultry to dark and daring. Behind her computer, she’s constantly dreaming up where she’ll go, what new characters she’ll meet along the way, and what genre she will concur next.

From her house in southwest Florida, she spends far too much time wishing she were at the beach with a good book. She’s an avid reader of fiction, but is a huge fan of gritty stories with deep emotion or dark twisty plot twists. She’s also known to indulge in guilty pleasure television shows. She gets sucked into the world of characters from all mediums. She loves to hear from her readers so make sure to check her out on social media.

#Review – Runaway Feelings by Britni Hill

Runaway Feelings


A sexy story about runaway romance coming October 26th, 2016 …

One night.
That’s all it was supposed to be.
One night in an island paradise with a perfect stranger.

All I needed was an escape, just for a few days. My life took a turn I didn’t see coming, so I hopped the first plane out of Chicago with no plan at all.

Headed for Tahiti, I was ready to put it all behind me.

I met Alex on the plane. He offered me something I wasn’t looking for. I took it greedily. When he offered more, I took that too.

When it all spiraled out of control what did I do?
One night.
That’s all I offered. At first.
One night with a beautiful woman. One I could walk away from.

A vacation was all I needed. Time away from running a business, and hiding from my soon-to-be ex-wife. I had it all planned out.

A fresh start waited for me when I got back.

Then she sat next to me. I wanted her. She was mysterious, hiding something. I offered her one night but it wasn’t enough.

Could a runaway romance really turn into more?

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

Uhm Britni you gotta warn a girl that this book is a non-stop read of hotness and sexy time??  I was like “WHU….My girl is writing filthy stuff…about time!!”  LOL

I love Briti’s characters because they could be me.  If you know Britni, you can hear her voice in the conversation between the characters.  There were times when I giggled saying “Yup that is soooooo Brit.”

Ok SOOO lets pretend you are engaged to a DB and you run…..you run to Tahiti.  When you are running you are sitting next to hottie who agrees to spend his time sexing you up while on said “vacation”.  What girl is gonna say no to that??  Not our Kait.

Alex is running himself to get away from life and Kait is the perfect “distraction”.  However, the more time they spend together the more time they both want but can’t because this is just a “no string attached while we are here on vacation” kinda thing.  People, this book is super hawt and sexy.  You find yourself falling more and more in love with Alex because DAYUM is he just perfect???

When RL comes crashing in, decisions are made and choices happen but then Alex is not happy and goes after HIS girl.  Because once you find that ONE person, you can’t let them go without a fight!!

#WOTR #MM #Review – Ryker & Gavin by AD Ellis

Ryker & Gavin

Gavin Mitchel has resigned himself to a lonely and unfulfilling love life, but his first meeting with Ryker Hudson is as steamy as it is random, which is precisely the way Ryker likes it. Their second meeting, while equally random, is beyond awkward.
Although a fourteen-year age difference stands in their way, a much larger obstacle is also blocking their path. Together, Ryker and Gavin must find the strength to overcome the roadblocks or bid farewell to their happily ever after.
**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and situations.**



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

AHH YES!  This book is by far my favorite of AD’s.  I don’t know why but Gavin just got to me……Maybe it’s his age, nerdy persona, unconfident and unlucky in love???  Maybe its Ryker just wanting to be loved and accepted for who he is unconditionally??  I don’t know but this couple….my heart!!!

Imagine finding a one night stand and thinking that MAYBE it could me more….and then a week later finding out this is soooo not possible because that one night stand is your best friends son…yeah AKWARD family dinners right!!??  WELL imagine said mother threw her gay son out when he came out at 18???  I mean HARSH.  Gavin is stuck…rock and hard place for dang sure.  We can feel his conflicted feelings for Ryker.  He is young and fun but he makes Gavin feel comfortable which isn’t an easy feat for “the old man”.

Ryker is hurting and refuses to let his mother back in but then after listening to his bestie and Gavin, he realized maybe he is willing to forgive things…but more importantly, is he willing to give things a go with Gavin???  *I was chanting DO IT DO IT*

You guys seriously, I felt the sadness from Gavin.  I felt and understood the anger at Ryker but I did wanna nut punch him one or twice for his overly rude comments.  But the feels are soooooooo THERE in this book.

I will say I loved seeing my Torey Hope peps and the side love story which totally helped Gavin and Ryker admit their feelings for one another…………

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.

“I have unusual hearing. I had to strain a little, but it was nice listening to you.”

“Careful, Caleb.” She giggled. “I think you just gave me a compliment.”

He almost got that closed-up look on his face again. Almost.

“I can say nice things when the moment arises.”

“Yes, you can.” In fact, his compliment made her feel positively giddy. “And thank you very much.” Then something he said clicked in her brain. “Have you been listening to my other music?”

He dropped his gaze to his plate. “I might have downloaded a track or two,” he mumbled.

“Why, Caleb Branam. Thank you so much. I’m flattered.”

“Yeah, well, don’t let it go to your head.” He bit into his hamburger, killing any further exchange of words.

Jasmine swallowed her smile and dug into her hamburger. By the time they finished eating and he’d had one beer to her two, she was a little mellow but still excited. She could feel it in her blood. These songs were good. Maybe the best she’d ever done. She couldn’t wait until they hit the studio tomorrow and she heard the guys play the tunes.

On the way home, she leaned back in her seat, closed her eyes, and hummed the tune she’d just finished that afternoon. She couldn’t wait to get into rehearsals tomorrow. She was so busy thinking about it all she didn’t realize they’d pulled into her driveway until the truck stopped.

“Oh!” She opened her eyes. “We’re here.”

“Yep. Have nice snooze?”

“I wasn’t sleeping,” she denied. “I was just imagining my music.”

“Okay. Let’s imagine it inside.”

In the house, she dropped her keys on the counter, put her purse next to them, and whirled around with her arms in the air. She was just so jazzed, just as she always was when she completed new songs. She wished she could soar through the air. She paid little attention to her actions until she lost her balance and stumbled into Caleb. He wrapped his arms around her to catch her, and every pulse point in her body began to thunder like a herd of elephants.

Jasmine wrapped her arms around his neck to balance herself and found herself staring into dark eyes that seemed to see right inside her. He cupped his palm to her head to hold it steady and pressed his mouth to hers. His lips were cool and firm, yet, at the contact, heat flooded her body. The tip of his tongue traced the closed seam of her mouth, and when he added pressure, she opened for him without thinking.

And practically detonated right there. His tongue scorched the inside of her mouth, coaxing her own tongue to dance with his. Everything faded away, leaving only the two of them and a kiss that trumped any she had ever had in her life. It went on and on, stealing her breath and making her nipples harden and her pussy tingle. She held on for dear life as the world spun around her.

Then, with the same suddenness, he broke the contact and lowered her to her feet. She stared at him through glazed eyes, trying to make her brain function again.


“What is the right word.” He took two steps back, putting distance between them. “I’m sorry. That was a mistake”

Jasmine licked her lips, the taste of him still lingering there as she struggled to get her breathing under control. “It didn’t feel like a mistake to me.”

Shut up, Jasmine. You know it was a mistake. Wrong guy, wrong time.

“Trust me, it is.” He had rearranged his features into his perfected expressionless mask again.


“Listen,” he interrupted. “There is no but. I haven’t kissed anyone in more than a year, and this is not the place to start.” He took another step backward. “This can’t happen. We have a business arrangement requiring my entire focus. And the last thing I need in my life is some kind of entanglement here.”

Disclaim by Pam Godwin
Matias & Camila

So, those of you that know me, know that one of my all time favorites is Pam Godwin. She could write an insurance manual and I’d be mesmerized by the contents! Her words are that fucking good! I intentionally read this slow so I could savor every damn word. I didn’t want it to end. Disclaim is thought provoking, captivating, and just down right brilliant. It will take your breath away and steal your soul.

This is not for the faint of heart so beware. No beautiful cut and dry love story here. This isn’t a BDSM tale of self discovery… more like the dark and dirty things in life we mostly turn a blind eye to. So, if your squeamish, then put this one back on the shelf until you are so inclined to pull up your big girl panties and read one of the best books of 2016.

Camila is one of those women so blinded by her own need to deliver justice to those who do wrong, that she doesn’t even hesitate to put herself in harms way if she believes the outcome will benefit her crusade. She strong, courageous, and cunning! She’s a former sex slave on a mission to take down any and all slave trading rings, but when she poses as a slave herself, things don’t go as planned. Let’s just say Camila is in for a rude awakening.

Matias is all kinds of alpha male. He’s lean, he’s mean, and he’s not taking no for an answer. He’s fighting his own battle that can only be described as hell on Earth. I seriously did not know whether to trust him or not. I’m still not certain! Get ready to fall in love with this man while your insides secretly hate him. No shit!

The supporting character cast is rather hefty. We get to see a small glimpse into Liv and Joshua’s lives, while giggling at Van and Amber a bit. The two characters that stood out the most for me were Tate and Nico. Tate is one of Camila’s best friends, but barely says two words through the entire book. His quiet persona intrigue me and I’m feeling that I need to know more about this beautiful silent giant. Now Nico, he’s Matias’ friends and he’s kind of a prick, but eh, he totally rubbed off on me.

So, this books is definitely going on my top 10 of 2016 no doubt about it. The storyline is exceedingly compelling and those characters, wow so commanding, so realistic. The dialogue flows with proficiency and the tension leading up to the climax is hauntingly superb. I love you Pam Godwin and your messed up mind! You make me wanna be a dirty girl!

Beautiful, innocent Mina Mason has led a sheltered life as the sister to the most notorious crime lord in England. Her family’s wealth and expectations keep her in a gilded cage, never able to act on her true desires. Like kissing — and engaging in far more scandalous behavior with–Charlie Thatcher, her childhood best friend. As a member of a rival gang, Charlie is distinctly off-limits.


Charlie Thatcher has known since he was a boy where his loyalties should lie: with the Chapman Street Thieves, who saved him from a brutal death in the dark alleys of the Ratcliffe rookery. As a bartender for the Three Boars public house, he deals in information and secrets, protecting his fellow brothers with his mind and his fists. But when one of those members threatens Mina’s safety, Charlie’s primal, protective instincts are triggered–and his defense of her puts them both in danger.


Stealing the Rogue’s Heart is a dark, gritty, and sexy romantic suspense set in pre-Victorian working class London. While it is book four in the Rookery Rogues series, it can be read as a stand-alone historical romance novella.

#Review #Contemporary #Suspense Sunset Reads: Damian & Layla (Sunset Reads 2) by D.C. Triana


One year.
It’s been one year since Agent Damian Trent left for Washington without a word.
One year since he’s seen her beautiful face.
One year since he’s heard his name on her lips.
He’s been recently called back to New York City on assignment, to catch a criminal who’s trying to infiltrate Sunset Reads. The last thing he expects is to work side by side with the woman he turned his back on.
Having her close is an unwanted distraction that he’s more than willing to ignore, if only she wasn’t so damn tempting.
Everything seems under control, until a night of feverish passion has him abandoning all thoughts of reason. Now, he will do everything in his power to get her back, and even more so to protect her.

Layla Reece wants nothing to do with the man who left her a year ago.
The man who took her heart with him, leaving her broken.
After a year of trying to forget Damian Trent, she is finally ready to move on.
But trying to forget him becomes a tedious task when he suddenly reappears in her life.
Although she fights to stay away, his magnetism is too strong and she finds herself giving into the deep timbre of his voice, and the strength and safety of his arms.
Staying away from Damian turns out to be futile, especially when his kisses consume her and his heart shatters the walls she spent so much time building.
Finding herself in danger, she now has to turn to the only man she trusts to keep her safe, but can she trust him enough to give him her heart once again?

He smiled wickedly and leaned in, bringing his face only inches away from hers. “What do you want to know, Miss Reece?”
Layla stared at those full, sensual lips, warmth spreading through her.
“Everything,” she replied breathlessly, her eyes widening when she realized she had spoken aloud.
He stared back at her parted lips while she spoke, and fought the urge to close the distance between them. After a brief moment, he smiled and leaned back. “I can tell you that I’m an only child. I can also tell you I grew up here in New York. In Brooklyn. Joined the military at eighteen.”
“How did you get recruited into the FBI?”
“I was a translator in the Special Ops unit. I graduated with two majors-”
“Two majors! Wow!” Her eyes showed genuine admiration.
“Don’t seem so surprised…” he teased.
“Oh…no…it’s just that, well you don’t really seem like…” she trailed off, not sure how to continue.
“Like a book worm?” He smiled.
“Well. Yes.” She played with her napkin nervously, her nerves catching up to her.
“And how do I seem, Miss Reece?”
Layla was briefly stumped by the question, but then pursed her lips in contemplation, mischief shining in her eyes.
“Rough around the edges,” she paused, taking in his demeanor, “definitely reserved…” Her eyes traveled along his strong jawline, making her way across his broad shoulders, and pausing slightly on the muscles of his chest before she brought her eyes back up to meet his. “Powerful,” she whispered.
He leaned in again. “Is that all?”
She smiled, a glint of amusement in her eyes. “Very Intelligent,” she finished, and took a sip of her drink, taking a quick glance at him beneath lowered lashes.
He stared at those green eyes. “You’re very observant, Miss Reece, and surprisingly rather bold.”
She smiled. “So I’ve been told.”
His eyes narrowed dangerously. “Have you also been told that you are very sexy, and that just by a glance from those emerald eyes you can make a man think deliciously, dark thoughts?” His voice was low and seductive.

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

This is book two in the Sunset. Reads series. A little refresher, Sunset Reads is a publishing house owned by William Jameson and his bestselling author wife Cristina Cruz. We met them in book one as it was the story of how they met, came together, and saved the company from his evil ex step father. We met Layla and Damian in their story too. Layla Reece is Cristina’s best friend and now she has been hired as the new Public Relations Director for the publishing House.
Damian Trent is one of Will’s oldest and closest friends and is in the FBI.
He and Layla had the start of a thing when they first met, but he left suddenly and destroyed her heart.
Now he is back in New York and still attracted to her, as she is him. However, she has no plans to ever lose her heart to him again.
When he is given his new assignment to look into a company that the FBI is looking into for embezzlement and fraud, he is sent right into Sunset Reads. Not knowing that Layla works there now, he has to convince Will and Cristina to let him use their company to catch the person behind the embezzling and frauds and he has to work with Layla too.
OMG! So, the attraction these two have is off the charts! They constantly want to be near each other but can’t stand to be near each other at the same time. Not to mention the fact that he absolutely does not like that she has to pretend to be attracted to the head of the company that he is investigating and Henry Cristina’s brother is in love with her.
Layla is a strong woman and know what she wants and knows how to do her job and the job that the FBI want her to do. Damian has been a agent for a long time and he is good at it. However, working with Layla is driving him outta his ming and I love seeing this strong man brought to his knees.
When they finally get together I’m surprised that the fire alarms don’t go off, that is how hot they are.
This story has it all; bad guys, bad girls, shoot outs, hot love scenes, hot FBI agents, hot fireman fiends, hot BFF with accents!!
Triana writes a story with mystery, intrigue, and about two people who when the going gets tough they stand up and do the job they have to do, and fall in love in the process.
Though this is book two in the series, I think it reads well as a stand alone. I do hope that we see Henry the Hot fireman and hunky Sebastian with his awesome accent get their HEA. I can’t wait for the next story!



My name is D.C. and I’m the author of a new series currently on Amazon called Sunset Reads. The first book is based on the couple William and Cristina who find themselves fighting their urges to be with one another although a series of heated moments changes their lives forever.
I grew up in New York, I’m the daughter of two wonderful,Colombian immigrant parents. I’m a traveler, the travel bug hit me a couple years ago and my goal is to eventually see the whole world. So far I’ve gotten to Italy and Japan…I’m thinking Germany next. I started to write as an outlet for being bullied at school and as soon as I started I couldn’t put the pen down. It was always my dream to be a published author, ever since the age of fourteen, and now at 34 I finally accomplished my goal.
I plan on continuing to write and really truly want to get to meet new readers and writers and share experiences and ideas. Being a part of forums is new to me, but I would love to get to know about the people who love to dream and create new ideas and fantasies through literature just like I do. Thank you for making me a part of your group and allowing me to join you in these amazing adventures in storytelling and reading.
