Burning Resolution: A Workout World Novel

synopsis

Armed with a New Year’s resolution and a surly attitude toward physical fitness, Erica Sutton hires a personal trainer to whip her pudgy self into shape. What she hadn’t bargained for was Zack Sharp – the owner of Workout World – assigning himself to be her workout nazi.

An obsessed ex-lover of Zack’s notices the attention he is paying Erica and sets out to remove the competition by any means possible.

Now, Erica and Zack are holed up, debating the merits of donuts, sex, and love while their crazy stalker sets out to light their world, quite literally, on fire. It’s a race against time to find their assailant before the relationship they’ve started to build is burnt to the ground.

angies review

 

I received this book for an honest review.

*Snort* Yes I am still laughing at this book.  I mean if you like funny and insane then this my friends is a book for you.  I mean the first chapter had me LAUGHING so hard and out loud.  It’s an over the top yet so much fun read.  I think that if you enjoyed Tara Sivec’s writing then you will need to read these as well!

Erica, the main character is soo me….packing on a few pounds and hating the way she looks she decided to go to the gym.  Holy Mother of God who is the work out sadist…errr…coach??  Why yes hottie from high school Zach that’s who!  The banter had me cracking up at parts and laughing so hard.  When the two are flirting and thinking about the good old high school days there is a bit of drama which causes Erica and Zach to spend more and more time together which makes them become more and more attracted to each other.  The chemistry was hot and their relationship was a wild ride.  The suspense storyline was good but you can kiiiiiiinda figure it out but the twist we get was something I wasn’t expecting!!

Yes there were times I was gonna vagina punch Erica for letting her insecurities push Zach away and same to him with a solid nut punch because he would compare Erica to women from his past but generally I loved the two.  I laughed so hard and was thrilled when the book 2’s story line started to take shape…man Mason and Shondra are gonna be so much fun to read because he opened his mouth and inserts his foot A LOT around her!!  LOL

angies review

I received a copy of this book from the author.

When Alyson, the queen of smut, says she is going to write a NA adult book…I giggled.  I mean smut lady writing new adult??  AS IF!!  She is just pulling her readers legs.  No way you go from writing WHAT SHE WROTE in Triztan to a sweet romance…….But holy crap did she do it AND not only did she do it but she knocked it outta the park.  I loved Triztan and his filthy mouth but Jesse and his sweet defending of Summer’s honor.  OMG I can’t believe it!!  Like NO FREAKIGN WAY but Jesse stole my heart.

Jesse and Summer meet at Summer’s grandpa’s ranch.  She goes there to hide from her mom and the pressures of the skating world.  She is lost, confused and hurting.  Jesse is sentenced to the ranch as a place to serve his time for the trouble he got into in the city.  The horrors he witnessed as a young boy and what he did to survive make you respect him like crazy.  Given what he has seen and done you really gotta give him props for doing what he had to do to survive on the streets.

Jesse and Summer are kindred spirits.  Both are not like their peers and want more but what more they have yet to discover.  They both realize they can talk and be themselves when near the other.  The love of her grandpa’s ranch starts a friendship that buds into more until Summer had to leave suddenly.

As time jumps, the two are still thinking about the other but they just haven’t gotten the right time….she has school and he has his sentence to finish.  Time doesn’t stop them from thinking about the other and wondering “What if”……………They are moving forward but not really moving on.

When more time happens and Summer finds out about another change in her life, Jesse is her rock.  Their friendship develops beyond friends and they are falling in love with each other thanks to a little push from a special person in their lives.

This book was so emotional……I had lots of teary moments and full on sob sessions.  I loved how the books has a slow build with Jesse and Summer’s chemistry.  We fall in love with them and their love story.   The last few chapters are time jumps so we can see what happens to the couple and I gotta tell you…I loved it.  I can SEE Alyson putting her own heart and soul into the novel at certain scenes and her emotion is clearly visible in the book.  If you don’t cry, you have no pulse….LOL

excerpt

“What do you think of this one, Summer?” Angie asked, showing off a white, strapless dress.

“I think it looks great on you, if you’re looking to get married.”

“Ugh. Why is this so hard?”

“Probably because your hair is the color of a rainbow, and everything clashes with it.”

“Bitch!”

I laughed. “You know it’s true.”

“Yeah, yeah, yeah.”

“Why don’t you just go with black? Everything matches that.”

“You know, that’s probably what I’ll end up doing.”

“That’s what I’m wearing.”

“Shut up. You’re wearing black because your boyfriend Jesse isn’t taking you to prom.”

“Maybe.”

“What would you do if he showed up?”

“What? What kind of question is that? You know he’s not going to, so why are we playing this game?”

“Oh. Oh. Oh. Because I want to know. What would Summer do if her hot bod, boyfriend showed up to prom?”

“Well, he won’t, so…”

“Come on. Spill it, Jacobs!”

“I don’t know. Dance?”

“Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Give me a break!”

“Well, isn’t that what you do at prom?”

“No. There’s a lot more that you do at prom.”

“Um…okay. Like what?”

“Stay out all night.”

“Alright. If Jesse showed up, we’d go to dinner, then the dance.”

“B.O.R.I.N.G.,” she yawned.

“What do you want me to say? That I’d take him to a hotel room, rip his clothes off, and have wild and crazy sex with him?”

“YES!!!”

“You’re ridiculous, Angie.”

“Why? Because I made you admit that you want to see him naked and have wild and crazy sex with him?”

“No. Because your mind always goes straight to the gutter.”

“You know what they say about girls that have dirty minds, right?”

I rolled my eyes. “No, do tell me.”

“We’re smarter.”

“That makes absolutely no sense. You do realize that?”

“It’s true. I read it in my teen magazine. They said that girls with dirty minds masturbate more often; therefore, letting their endorphins kick in. It has something to do with releasing a certain chemical into your brain, and that’s why it makes you smarter.”

“So…if you’re a horny girl, you’re smarter?”

“Yep. They’ve even proven it with science.”

“I’m calling bullshit on that one, Ang.”

“Whatever, Summer. Science doesn’t lie.”

Word Count: 83,000 appox.

A lady concealed from society…
Lady Ellington, the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy marquis, has spent her entire life hiding from London’s high society—both as a result of her own desires and those forced upon her by her overbearing and abusive father. When the marquis passes away suddenly, Ellie feels as though a weight has been lifted and immediately assumes her role as mistress of Drake House. Though she is constantly looking over her shoulder, wondering when it will all be taken from her. And for good reason—no sooner has she shed her black mourning garb than a missive arrives, announcing an heir to the Marquisate. A person she has never heard of before, but one with enough power to change her fate entirely.
A man uncovering the secrets of his past…
Taken in by his nursemaid in infancy and raised as an orphan, Alex has never had the benefits of a name or a bloodline. Yet he’s content to work hard and earn his keep as a stable hand in one of London’s finest homes, proving himself worthy of both his position and his friendship to the beautiful Lady Ellington. When Ellie asks for his help with a delicate matter, he’s happy to oblige, but soon finds himself in the middle of more than he bargained for. His innocent meeting reveals secrets from the past that he never could have imagined, and he discovers that he’s a duke by birth. But even with the possibility of a title and all that goes along with it, Alex is unsure whether he can tear down the walls Ellie has built to protect her heart.
A love neither can hide…
While the two have a love that’s undeniable, it may not be enough to bridge the gap and overcome the obstacles standing in their way. And now, with every secret revealed, there’s even more at stake.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

“Ellie,” Alex said, his face only inches away. “Have you listened to a thing I’ve said?”
No, she didn’t want to listen; she only wanted to flee the room—the house entirely—and leave everyone behind.
She blinked rapidly and focused her gaze on his face—so stunningly handsome. Why had she never realized how truly, strikingly beautiful he was? It wasn’t until one was faced with the possibility of losing something that they finally found clarity.
“That paper does not matter…” His words faded once more as the thoughts fought for control over her mind. Of course, the papers didn’t matter—he would not agree to marry her. Why would he? She was a bastard. She was without a mother.
And he, Alex, was to be a grand duke.
Society—and every marriageable debutante—would be at his fingertips.
He would have no use for her. She was a liar, a coward, and not worthy of the love of a faithful man.
And she’d fooled herself into thinking it was she who didn’t need him.
“Do you not have anything to say?” Alex asked, moving his hold to her hand. “Your hand in marriage will make all that’s to come bearable—I want it all with you by my side or none of it.”
It was her turn to stare, her jaw slack. “Did I hear you correctly?” she mumbled.
“Ellington,” Alex started over, and she was grateful for it because she’d blocked every word, fearing them. “Will you honor me by taking the title of Lady Chastain—forever more to be my wife? You shall never want for a name or a home again.”
“But…“ Ellie couldn’t seem to put all her thoughts into cohesive sentences. “Why me?”

Twinsie for the Day

Review by Becky

What do you get when you mix a manly man, a successful woman, and a stalker? You get Brutal Obsession.  What woman would object to having her past man provide you protection from a crazy stalker? Maybe one that said things she shouldn’t have ending her relationship with man staring in front of her that is supposed to be her protector? Why would that manly man provide that daily protection to the woman from his past to whom he walked away from? To him, it starts as a job and to her it offers the protecting she needs from the creepy stalker. Not sleeping for nights. Waking up only to find he had been in her apartment watching her sleep? AHHHh.

Keane and Ashlyn get thrown together because of th creeper stalker. The close proximity to each other draws them closer to the point they can no longer deny the animal magnetism that pulls them together. This does not go unnoticed by the stalker. His actions intensify and Ashlyn goes from a desire prized possession to a tainted whore. The stalker continues to stay step in step with Keane and lurking in the shadows until the perfect storm.
You won’t find pages of sex and mind blowing O’s . You will find suspense and resolutions of years of unresolved word sanctions become resolved with the couple rejoining. The book is slower to start. Do not stop reading. I couldn’t put it down after the first few chapters.nit absolutely is a must read!

Wed by Wednesday

What happens when a naive city girl answers a personal ad to marry a bachelor farmer from the hills of Tennessee? Destiny! Read how Orla and Jethro’s story started back in the 1960s…and find out exactly how deliciously naughty these two can be! This insta-love 50,000-word novel is filled with humor, romance, and just enough erotica to keep you coming back for more. Wed by Wednesday is the prequel to Sarah O’Rourke’s Paradise series, and like all of her books, it can be read as a standalone. Free to read on KindleUnlimited with subscription!

“Listen, chaste kisses are fine for what they are. Quick exchanges of affection. An innocent way to tell somebody they mean something. When you wanna show a woman that she’s what’s lighting the fire in your gut, though… quick and innocent pecks just don’t do the trick. Nah, a man goes dark and dirty for that kind of lesson. He wants his woman wet and hot. And he wants her that way everywhere. Her mouth. Her core. Everywhere.”

review-header

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

OMG these ladies kill me.  There books always make me laugh out loud with the characters along with fan myself from the heat.  Even though this book travels back in time for Orla and Jethro, I still got everything I knew I would love about the characters.

We have met and loved Jethro and Orla in all of the books in the series so it made my heart happy so full to see their love story unfold even as untraditional as it was.  Orla had nothing and she meets Jethro in a personals ad oooorrrrr so she thinks and that is how this story begins.  Orla showing up to meet her farmer hubby to find out he is not the one who proposed but his mother is??  LOL I mean I was dying at the banter between our city girl and her broody bachelor.  Jethro and his super alpha dominant ways with Orla and her failed cooking…Snickers……Yes this book has an insta love element but ya know what, I loved it!!  I loved seeing these too and seeing their love unfold..LOVED LOVED LOVED it!!

If you love the series, like I do, you need this book in your life. PERIOD.  Orla is a scream at 20 as she is at 70.  Jethro corrupted her in the best of ways as she corrupted him too.

Jethro’s lips kicked up in a sly half-smile at her sudden movement. It was like he knew he was getting to her and he enjoyed that knowledge immensely. “There’s no way you’re not from the city. Nashville or Knoxville, maybe,” he murmured, before shaking his head. “Nah, I’m bettin’ you came in from Atlanta.”

“How…how did you know that?” Orla stuttered, her eyebrows furrowing with consternation. Just what she needed in her life – an intelligent jackass.

“That fancy hair. Your pretty dress. Those shiny shoes that, if you look, you can see your reflection lookin’ back. And those heels of yours aren’t scuffed, so you’ve been riding, not walking. Your clothes are too wrinkled to be from Nashville or Knoxville, so you’re just rumpled enough to have gotten off the bus from Atlanta,” he surmised, with a know-it-all grin as her cheeks reddened with embarrassment. “Oh, yeah! You’re city bred from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. And a fussy little lady like you ain’t gonna find what she’s lookin’ for in Paradise.”

“Actually, son…” Jethro’s mother began to hedge, biting her lip as she turned to look up into her son’s face. “She has found just what she’s been missing.”

Biting her lip, Orla winced as Jethro frowned at his step mother. The woman, however, didn’t look overly worried about her son’s imminent reaction and she wondered if things would work out alright after all.

Jethro frowned. “Mother McKinnon, we don’t have time for…”

“Oh, just rip the bandage off, Lydia,” Nellie ordered, interrupting Jethro as she bustled over to where they all stood together. “Jethro, meet your future wife,” the waitress decreed, flapping a hand at where Orla stood, nose to chest with him. “Take a minute and let this settle in your bones, boy. Your much beloved step-momma done went and ordered you up a bride for hire.”

Lured By My Master  (The Doms of Genesis #6)

synopsis

How far would you go for love? Would you strip away your defenses? Confront your fears? Unlock your darkest secrets? Risk your heart without any promise of tomorrow?
I, Cindy Noland, ER Nurse have fallen crazy-in-love with sinfully sexy Dr. Samuel Brooks, only to discover he’s been hiding a kinky alter ego: Master Sam. Confronting him tossed me into a mysterious new world that incited my every fear, made my heart race, and left me questioning everything I knew about myself. Now I have only two options: gather the pieces of my heart and walk away, or lay my soul bare to venture into the sensual unknown with a man who’s heart might never be mine?
Just how far would I go for love?

Twinsie for the Day

Review by Amy

Never have I been given such a look inside a submissive’s mind before now. Jenna Jacob does an outstanding  job of creating characters that you can relate to and come to call friends.

Dr.  Sam Brooks and Nurse Allisinda (Cin) Noland work together but also have a steamy relationship. Once her best friend, Liz, lets it slip that Sam is a Dom, Cin must decide what her next move is… learn to be the submissive he needs or walk away. Cin has to look deep into herself to decide who she is and if she can leave all preconceived notions behind so she can keep what she wants most, Sam.

The book sucks you in from the beginning and grabs a hold of you, letting go too soon. Lucikly, you never quite let go of these characters and see them throughout this amazing series.

Meet The Author…

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.

Author Bio

Muriel Garcia is an indie author from Belgium.

She started writing in 2005 but never published anything until 2015 when she decided to bite the bullet and just do it. She’s grateful for all the amazing people she got to meet through her passion for writing.

The ‘Last Hangman MC Series’ is the one that made people find out about her but since then she released a contemporary series and a dark gory thriller, which people have compared to Stephen King on crack — thing she’s rather proud of.

Some of her favourite things include snowy days, live music, horror movies, ghost stories, travelling and of course a cosy day spent with a good book.
