#review – Cupid’s Arrow by Onne Andrews @OnneAndrews

Cupid's Arrow

synopsis

A cupid shooting another immortal with an arrow of Love was stupid and dangerous, so Galen fully expected to be punished by his grandmother, the goddess Aphrodite, after he shot Jack Frost. What he didn’t expect was Grandmother to strip his wings and powers, then dump him stark naked in the middle of Detroit’s coldest winter on record.

As a social worker, Cassie Stamos has a thing for hard luck cases. However, the naked hot guy who stumbles into her life isn’t the typical homeless man she deals with, though Galen Erotes may be just as crazy. Or she thinks so until he introduces her to a talking reindeer.

She knows she can never be a part of his world, but has the kiss she stole from him already condemned him to the mortal realm forever?

***Warning! For my regular readers, this story severely departs from my usual style in that it involves a heterosexual relationship between one man and one woman. I apologize if this subject matter offends some of you.

It also involves instances of matchmaking, elf violence, senior citizen sexual mishaps, and more really bad t-shirt puns.

Novella, approximately 30,000 words

angies review

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

I love to read Onne’s stories because they are always super fun…hot and sexy plus always fun too.

Galen is Cupid.  Like he is THE man.  In the last book, which I didn’t read and it didn’t affect my reading of this story, he caused a major problem…like a big time no-no.  SO his grandma and father are not too happy.  They decide to punish him and teach him a lesson.

Stripped literally and figuratively, he is dumped outside naked in Detroit.  Enter our heroine Cassie.  She steps in and helps to take care of Galen until his memory returns because the story he is telling has to be from a head injury right????

Galen and Dmitri, Cassie’s dad, crack me up a lot in the book.  Dmitri wants his daughter to be respected and treated well by Galen all the while Cassie is throwing herself at Galen…snicker…if only daddy knew who the naughty one in this situation really was.

The story is a quick and fun ready.  I mean we get to find out about the great war the Roman Gods are having with Santa Clause and his people….SEE FUNNY STUFF all the while waiting for Galen and Cassie to finally make a love connection.

Seriously though, this book was really fun and I sat one after noon and read through it laughing and fanning myself…f you are loking for something funny this is a good book to take a chance with.

House of Payne: Steele (House of Payne Book 5) by Stacy Gail

image

synopsis

TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subjects of surviving rape, trauma suffered during combat, child abuse, and possible sterility. If you have issues with these elements, this book might not be for you.

Raped. Tortured. Beaten. Essie Santiago’s life fell apart when she was sixteen, and it’s taken eight years to put it back together. There are some pieces that can never be mended; it would take a miracle for her to get pregnant, and physical closeness is something that makes her shudder. Only her love of creating beauty in the form of fashion gets her through the worst of the darkness.

When a mortar attack destroyed half his face and all of his life as he knew it, something vital died inside of former Marine, Ezekiel Steele. For years he’s felt nothing… until he sees Essie trying her best to be invisible. But the feisty spark inside the lovely fashion designer is too bright to be concealed, and like a moth to a flame, he’s helpless to resist her.

Chicago’s premiere tattoo studio, House Of Payne, is taking the world of fashion by storm, holding a contest to find the best designer the city has to offer. Competition is fierce, but all Essie can concentrate on are Steele’s dirty-talking lessons in sex. But when the student surpasses the master when it comes to love, Steele’s inner demons get the better of him. If he can’t face them down, he’ll lose Essie forever.

Fairy tale HEA guaranteed. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of 18***

kristis review

Received a copy for a honest review

Ok so for 4 books we have gotten hot, tattooed, alpha men and women from the House of Payne. Now we have head of the House’s security non-tattooed alpha Ezekiel Steele in the mix along with Essie Santiago, fashion designer and Twist’s little sister.
We found out  in book 3 why Essie left Chicago as a damaged teen, but now she’s back in town to win the honor of being House of Payne’s exclusive fashion designer. Being that it’s Payne we know she’s gonna have to jump through some hoops to get there.
I think it’s great that straight out of the gate Steele, as he likes to be called, knows how to deal with Essie. When she finds out that the contestants have to go through deep background checks for the contest she wants out, she doesn’t want anyone else to know she has been through some serious shit that almost killed her.
By pushing her into a corner, so to speak, he gives her a reason to stay because she is a fighter!!
These two characters are made in fire from the experiences they’ve lived. Him a ex solider, not only scarred on the outside from the wounds of battle, but scarred on the inside from the wounds that his childhood and his ex wife left on him. Her scarred both on the outside and the inside from a monster that decided to take her childhood from her.
Watching these two together is great! Steele does a awesome job of making Essie feel safe, yet letting her come into her own.
Steele realizing that his perfect ex wife wasn’t worth the pedestal that he put her on and that he hurt the one person that he promised not too broke my heart.
Essie and Steele fit together so well that when they figure it out its beautiful.
Reading about the fashion show is super cool! I love seeing how Essie gets her inspirational from the different tattoo artist! Enter Mad Max!! Helloooooooooooo hot stuff!! Accent and tats he needs a book like, STAT!!!
Not only did Gail give us our original House favs and introduce us to a new hot tattoo god, but she also gave us some seriously mental competition for Essie in the Fashion Designer contest!
Dizzy Izz and Oliver are pissy, uppity, and just plain no completion when it comes down to it, but like a good villain makes for good tv they also make for good reading too!
I love just how well Gail’s characters fit in the story, whether they’re a main character or a side one.
I LOVE this series and can’t wait for more!!

Excerpt

       “You sure you don’t need… uh, this?”

A low, sexy laugh escaped him as he brought his hand back to the juncture of her thighs. “This? You mean my cock?”

It was amazing, how she could still blush. “Mm-hm.”

“Say it.” When she didn’t immediately respond, the slow encroachment of his hand stilled. “Essie, I want you to feel free to say anything when you’re with me. Any thought. Any word. Nothing’s forbidden between us. You can say it.”

“Okay.” She huffed out an irritated breath and tried not to imagine what her mother would think of her for having such a dirty mouth. “Your, um… your c-cock.”

His hand instantly slid into her cleft, homed in like a champ on her clit and gave it one hard circle. She gasped, her head flinging back, but just as suddenly as he started, he stilled again.

“You stumbled a bit on that, sweetness. Say it again. It sounds so pretty, coming from your sweet lips.”

“Your cock.” It was quiet, hushed, but she managed to say it this time without stuttering. She was immediately rewarded with a few more spectacular swirls of his finger, but just as she was dissolving into a pool of pleasure, he stopped again.

“Say it again.”

Goddamn it. “Your cock.”

“Louder.”

“Your cock, your cock, your huge, fucking cock.”

She thanked heaven and whatever deity that might be involved in dirty talk when his fingers began to move, but they worked her so slowly she couldn’t stand it.

“Do you like my huge, fucking cock, Essie?”

“Yeah. Oh, yeah.”

“How much do you like my huge, fucking cock?”

Feverishly she pumped her hips, trying to get him going, and her hands loosened the front of his jeans despite his claim that it wasn’t necessary. “I love your huge, fucking cock.”

“What do you love about my huge, fucking cock?”

“At the moment, I love that it can’t talk.” – (322 words)

Release Day: April 25, 2016
Genre: Paranormal Romance

12894543_541380769356787_198004909_o

Blurb:

“Let me obliterate each and every last beast that’s holding that beautiful mind captive, Giselle.”

It’s no secret Detective Mike Thatcher wasn’t a fan of the blood drinkers. They stole his life, his woman, his future when they kidnapped his college sweetheart. So of course Fate paired him with the one thing he’d spent the past eleven years hating…a vampire. But Giselle isn’t just any vampire. She’s seduction, sin, strength and fragility all wrapped into one ice-cold package.

“That could take a lot of time. I have a lot of demons.”

Giselle has reasons for her sandpaper exterior, but they’re hers and hers alone. Then along came the one male she never wanted. Her Fated. Mike changed her in ways she didn’t like. He made her soft. He made her care. The gorgeous asshole made her feel, goddammit. And he’s just made it clear the running is over. Letting love in would prove to be the biggest challenge she’d ever faced.

But as Mike lets the past go, can Giselle do the same? Can she bare her soul? Show her shame? Just as Giselle stops fighting the inevitable, her entire world doesn’t only shift on its axis…it falls the fuck off.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A STANDALONE. This is a novella in the Regent Vampire Lords series that picks up on Mike and Giselle’s relationship toward the end of Reawakening. To understand their back story, you MUST read the series in order, starting with Surrendering.

**Contains graphic sexual content and foul language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

 Forged
in Fire 
 
 
“Lady, if I were you, I’d get the hell away from here ‘cause
when I make it up this hill, I’m gonna be looking for you.” Lucky Coalson’s luck has run out.  His ex-wife turned out to be a con artist; his business is in a shambles; and he’s been tossed into a muddy river by a smart assed feminist with a chip on her shoulder.  Things couldn’t get much worse…or
so he thought.
When Lucky’s accused of murdering his ex-wife, the Coalson
family enlists the help of a private investigator to gather the clues necessary to prove his innocence. Little did they know that Renee Morgan is the same woman that sent Lucky scrambling up a sodden river bank at the height of a storm.
The two square off immediately, but Renee’s admiration of
the Coalson family, despite her dislike of Lucky, is the deciding factor in her acceptance of the job. And although Lucky bristles every time she speaks, he grudgingly respects her intelligence and savvy skills as a private investigator.
As the hunt for the killer escalates, the two find they are
not the only ones looking for the mysterious assassin. And the other people are more than willing to take out anyone that gets in their way, including those that Lucky and Renee hold dear to their hearts.  


In a moment of passion that rocks them to the core, they
realize their love may be forged in fire, but both have been badly burned by past lovers, and too stubborn to admit the truth.  Can they find a way around their fears, or will Lucky’s ex-wife continue to plague him from the grave?

#Review – Save Your Soul by: Rochelle Paige

 

synopsis

 Brecken Kane had been damn good at his job in the military. The experience served him well when he moved into the private sector. Brecken’s new security business is booming, and he’s settling into civilian life. Little does he know his newest client’s request to save his daughter will change everything.

Hadley Gresham knows she isn’t likely to make it out of the jungle alive. She’d distanced herself from her parents after she learned her dad made his money selling illegal arms. Kidnapped by his competitors, she knows there’s little chance he’ll be able to save her.

Luckily for Hadley, her father hires Brecken. He’d never leave an innocent woman behind, let alone the one he quickly comes to consider his. Brecken might be Hadley’s rescuer, but she’s the one who saves his soul.

Melinda's Review

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

I so enjoyed this quick insta-love read, even though it is a quick read it is fast paced and pack full of hot alpha military male, suspense, a feisty female, and some hot sexy scenes.

Brecken Kane who is ex-military and now owns a security company is hired to save Hadley Gresham. Little does Hadley’s father know when he shows Brecken a picture of Hadley Brecken decided then and there he was going to save her and she was going to be his.

Hadley knows she was kidnapped because of her father even though she thinks there is either no way her dad could save her or even forgot about her she still has fight in her. She is surprised when her savior does come for her one glance at Brecken and she is attracted. However, after having to hike miles in the jungle after being saved she soon realizes this is more than an attraction.  All I can say is the water fall scene was so HOT.

Rochelle Paige has such a way of dragging you into a story and making you want to turn the pages. This is a short story but it is not short on anything. It is packed with romance and suspense. I do wish it was longer only because I felt a connection to Brecken and Hadley and just wanted more. I am enjoying this series and cannot wait to see what’s next.

about-the-author
 

I absolutely adore reading – always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me “About time!”

#WOTR #Review – A Reason to Live by @CPSmith63 #ARTL #ReasonSeries @WritersonRiver

ARTL COVER

WARNING: Author believes in soul mates and insta-love, proceed with caution if you’re not a romantic at heart.

Love’s greatest cure is salvation of one’s soul.

Shane Sherman has a problem. Well, two, actually. One has auburn hair and pale-green eyes, and the other? . . . Is a secret. One he doesn’t want to talk about. But all that changes when Sage comes to town.

Sage Sloan is being stalked. So she runs to Trails End and the bravest man her sister said she’d ever met. Sergeant Shane Sherman.

Sparks fly, tempers flare, and bears misbehave as Shane and Sage find a way to coexist in Trails End. That is, until a killer comes to call. Then all bets are off. Shane isn’t about to lose his saving grace.

This is the third and final book in the Reason Series. I highly recommend you read books one and two before “A Reason To Live.”

Rated R for sexual content and language and M for Maxine.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

A Reason To Live by C.P. Smith
Shane & Sage
GREAT CONCLUSION TO A MAGNIFICENT SERIES
5 Stars cause 10 wasn’t an option

Holy. Freakin’. Hell. This book knocked me on my ass. CP Smith really outdid herself with this one. From a prologue that grabs you immediately with it’s heart wrenching detail and the thick with emotion story to follow, I fear she’ll have a hard time trying to top this one. It’s THAT good people! This tale of two lost souls wondering through life not sure of their next moves will make you laugh, it’ll make you cry, and somewhere in between, it’ll make your heart leap with vast amounts of emotion.

Sgt. Shane Sherman is struggling with life after war, life after death, and what the future holds for a man who doesn’t seem to think he’s worthy of love or life. He’s bitter, he’s callused, and he’s Trails Ends most eligible headcase… I mean bachelor, lol. He fits in well in Trails End, however he’s in limbo between putting some roots down and being a fly-by-night drifter that works odd jobs, very rarely interacts with his peers, and can’t overlook his past. Enter the beautiful and talented Sage Sloan.

This girl fits in so perfectly in Trails End and into the lives of our awesome “First Family” of the town. Mia and Maxine really take a liking to her immediately and I say what’s not to love with her. Sage is a strong female character lead. She’s a therapist for troubled and abused kids, but taking a bit of a leave due to unsettling threats happening to her lately. She goes to Trails End looking for Sgt. Sherman so that he can help her figure out what’s going on and hopefully solve the mystery of the threats. She gets way more than she bargained for and I’m not just talking about Shane. Holy cowz these women of Trails End are relentless.

Maxine is insistent on Sage hanging around Trails End for a while. She always knows more than we do and can predict more for some reason. That woman makes this story and every other story she’s in that much richer, funnier, and more meaningful. I just love this town and it’s inhabitants. I’m going to beg CP to take me there one day! I’m sad to see that this is the last “Reason” book, but wow… what a book this is to close out one of the most memorable series I’ve ever read.

It’s compelling, it’s emotional, and it’s full to the rim with suspense, wit, and sex appeal. The pacing is perfect, the characters powerful and convincing, and the dialogue flows with ease and felt very natural. The build up to the climax was superb and created the right amount of tension to keep me hanging on every damn word. It’s not light-hearted, but not awfully dark either. It’s the perfect blend of anticipation and hope. I loved it and wish I could read it again for the first time!

MELINDA’S REVIEW

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

This is the second book in the combustible series and is a standalone you do not have to read Heart on Fire.  However, this series is so good you will want to. Brandy L. Rivers has a way of writing strong women who have been through a lot and is trying to overcome it without being weak and dependent on a man.

Ella is tired of being in the spot light 24/7 she needs to get away she takes off to take up residents in a small town near her friend Mila. Ella has secrets that she wants no one to find out. She has panic attacks and tried to handle things on her own but after meeting her neighbor Trent he was determined NOT to let her do it on her own.

Trent is the fireman next door and is drawn to Ella. She is familiar to him but has no idea why but his 9 year old nephew has it figured out. Trent is determined to help Ella get over her nightmares. However, he has his own issues he is working through.  Will Trent be able to hlp Ella get over her past even when old ghosts begin to appear.

I enjoy Brandy L. Rivers writing style but this one was one of the best. There is drama but not over the top, suspense that has you turning the pages, and love of a family and friends. I am loving this series just as much as her paranormal series.

A few of my favorites:

“Ella, I’ve been invested since you ran into me at the store. You’re different than any other woman I’ve ever met. We have a connection. No one has ever made me feel this way.”

“She seemed surprised you were with a girlfriend.” “I dated. I don’t think I called any of them my girlfriend. None of them were you. I’ve had sparks, but never fire.”

– EXCERPT 

Ella noticed the condensed milk behind her and set her phone in the shopping cart before turning back. She ran right into a solid wall of man and stumbled back, pulling her hands up in a defensive stance.

He caught her upper arms before she fell and pulled her upright. She jerked away as her breath came in heavy pants.

“Hey, you all right?” His warm baritone eased the building panic, followed by pale blue eyes holding her gaze, calming the sudden fear.

Once her heartbeat slowed, she quickly took him in. Hair as black as night, icy blue eyes, pale skin, full pink lips. The emblem on his uniform struck a chord and the rest of her tension rolled away.

A nervous laugh escaped. “Sorry. I didn’t see you there.”

He ducked his gaze, a slight smile on his lips. “My fault.”

“Mine. I wasn’t looking.” I’m an idiot.

He chuckled. “I’ll admit, I was staring. You look familiar. Just trying to figure out why.”

No, no, no! He can’t know who I am. Shaking her head, she backed toward her cart and closed her eyes. Her heart tried to pound its way out of her chest.

“Sorry. Too forward?” He shuffled away one step and shoved his hands in his pockets. “I wasn’t trying to come on to you. You really do look familiar, and I can’t figure out why.”

She pushed the black frames up her nose and shrugged. “I’ve been in town all of an hour. Never been here before in my life.”

Recognition lit up his face and her heart sank. Maybe settling down was a really bad idea.

“Mila’s friend? Ella, right?”

Nodding, she took a relieved breath. “Yeah.”

“Must have seen pictures of you over at her house.”

“Oh.” A frown pulled at her lips.

He shook his head. “Damn. Hey, sorry. I’m Trent Ward.” He held out his hand, and she took it cautiously.

“Hi, Trent. Look, I’m doing a little shopping now that I’m finally here. I drove all day long and I’m tired, but I need food. I’m sure I’ll see you around.”

Her nervous rambling made him smile. “You will. I live across the street from you.”

“Huh. Have a nice night.” Dipping her head, she grabbed the condensed milk and dropped it into the cart before hurrying out of the aisle.

I received this review copy from the publisher off of NetGalley.

Oh man!  Rand Rand Rand!!  You secret fulfiller you….scratch that you naughty secret fulfiller you!!  LOL  Rand has been in a couple of pretty hot and steamy scenes through the series and so I gotta say, I was interested in what he had to “bring to the table” if ya catch my drift!!!

Cat is a hot mess.  We saw her demise at the end of the last book and we kinda feel bad for her but do we really???  I mean she was rich entitled woman but then we find her sleeping in her car…SAY WHAT?  So I was interested in what the heck happened to go from flowing in cash to negative cash in her accounts.

Rand is a Mr. White Knight and he does his best to try and get through to Cat but she doesn’t deem herself worthy of Rand.  Rand goes through a lot as do we the readers.  There were times I was giving the stink eye and then I was kinda frowing but then was fanning myself because man can Sawyer serve up the hotness in her novels!!

As much as I loved this book and I look forward to the next novel, I am waiting not so patiently for Bridger because that BROKEN Man has my heart and has since book 1…do you remember that threesome????  Oh wait I mean do you remember how broken he is…LOL

*~*~*It’s RELEASE DAY for Bryan & Jase: Something About Him by A.D. Ellis!*~*~*

Bryan & Jase (Something About Him)

 

The blurb:

Jase Rafferty grew up hiding his sexual curiosities—until he meets Bryan Keating. Bryan’s sexual preference is no secret, and being deployed overseas together allows the two men to forge a solid friendship. The sexual attraction is undeniable, but after one lust-filled week, they must go their separate ways.

A year later, a chance meeting gives them one more weekend together, even though they know Jase can’t risk his military career or his family obligations to be with Bryan.

Several years pass before Jase finally accepts the desperate longing in his heart and body. But when fear and hatred threaten to tear them apart, Jase must make a tough decision, one that he isn’t sure he and Bryan can overcome. Together, they must choose to weather the storm or say goodbye forever.

 

**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

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

*Wipes my tear and shakes my fist* DAMN IT AD!!!! UGH!! This book!!! So much about this book…the feels, the emotion, the want and the needs of the characters in the book.

I love MM stories and read the short novella about Bryan and Jase a month or so ago. SO when I saw the full length novel, I was stoked. I was keeping an eye on the teasers and knew that the guys were together and there was a child but that was about the extent of what I knew. When I sat down today, I DEVOURED the book. I stopped only when I HAD TOO because Jase, Bryan and Gray NEEDED ME!!! They needed me to read their complex and long love story….SIGH……

Jase and Bryan knew each other when they were in the military. Bryan was out about his sexuality. Jase was always in the closet and afraid to admit his feelings for men…well for Bryan specifically. When the two meet up (AFTER THE NOVELLA) we catch up and see that Jase is still hiding. They guys spend another long weekend end with the “what if’s” playing in their minds. When they lose touch they re-connect at a gaming convention out of pure coincidence. The guys pick up right where they left off.

Jase is trying to find a way to deal with this love of his, how to talk to his son about who he loves and trying to make it work with Bryan. Bryan is stumbling because he is all in so he wants to shout it out at the rooftops that this is his boyfriend but he is trying to be patient with Jase and respectful of his son’s needs.

The story, unfortunately, hits on many subjects that homosexual couples have to endure. They have to deal with judgmental worries from co-workers plus judgement from family members but many harmful world spewed at their children. Love is Love People. PERIOD!

My favorite part of the story is Bryan talking to Gray about bigotry…..
“I used to hide that I like boys. But as I got older I remembered all the lessons that I learned in church and two of them stuck out the most for me. God never makes mistakes, so I know he didn’t mess up when he made me. And God teaches us to love one another. He didn’t say love only the people you agree with or love only those who live that way you think they should.”
