Ever since that horrific night, I’d shut men completely out of my life. I’d gone from the spunky, fun, Alex DeMarco to a broken woman terrified of intimacy. Easing me back into dating, my best friend sets me up with kickboxing lessons from my charming and perfectly sculpted instructor—Carter Maxwell.
Carter’s goal is to break through my emotional barrier and mold my heart just like he molds my body, but trusting men is a battle I’m not ready for. What’s worse is my ex fiancé, Todd Livingston—the man who tore my heart in two—wants me back, and as much as I’d like to deny it, the feelings are still there.
Both men want what I can’t give—my body and my love—and neither are willing to give up the fight. But only one of them can unbreak this heart of mine.

Genre: New Adult Romance Cover Design: Charity Ferrell Release Date: August 30, 2018
Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.
Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating. The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath.I can’t blame him. He pleaded for me not to walk away. He doesn’t know leaving him broke my heart as much as it did his. It wasn’t for me. Rather, it was for someone else.
I skipped town after Hurricane Lauren obliterated my heart. Coming home was a hard choice to make. Arresting her isn’t. She has no idea of the demons I carry with me now. No idea that I’m a new man.
Charity Ferrell resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. She grew
up riding her bicycle to her library and reading anything she could get her hands on. Angst is her happy place, and she loves writing about flawed people finding love. She loves the basics—books, shoes, and online shopping.
Love conquers all…
The world doesn’t accept us, and people can be cruel. They tend to focus on the scars Captain earned in battle—but I see the man.
Every test we face only proves we are destined for each other.
Our brand of love is passionate and true, and we won’t let anything keep us apart.
Find out what happens when true love collides with selfless sacrifice.
Sparks will fly in the heartfelt conclusion
to Captain and Candy’s story.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I loved the first book in the duet, so I was going crazy waiting for the send installment of Captain and Candy’s love story/HEA.
This picked up literally as Captain left Candy’s house when he decided not to collar her. He gets some advice from a good friend on what to do with his predicament…he loves her BUT is too old for her.
I enjoyed the dynamic of what Captain does to help guide Candy and help her grow as a submissive. I loved seeing her with a few training center dominants to help her realize 110% Captain is the man for her. I think this dynamic helped Captain also realize he needs the little minx in his life too.
The rest of the book is a lot of retelling of previous scenes we have already seen Candy and Captain in….dinner with Brie and Sir, re-training Mary, the Russian Rescue of Rytsar, etc so I felt that part of the story wasn’t much new information since we already KNEW/UNDERSTOOD how they were feeling in the main Brie storyline.
The end of the book I did enjoy because I think it helped Captain face his demons with his personal life too. He is completely happy with Candy and their life but sometimes you don’t even know you need something until it presents its self to you.
I am excited to see more back story of Sir, Rytsar, and Master Anderson in college. Those will be some fun reads I am sure…unless they show the scene with Mistress Clark and Rytsar….eeeek that could be sad to read.

Title: My Kinda Forever
Series: Summer Sisters, Book 6
Author: Lacey Black
About My Kinda Forever:
Alone. Everything changed for Meghan Summer that fateful February night. All she had, all she saw in her future, was stripped away in the blink of an eye. Even though she finds herself surrounded by her growing family, at the end of the day, there’s nothing but a gaping hole where her heart once beat. Or so she thinks…
Her. Nick Adams shouldn’t want her. First off, she’s his employee and friend, but more importantly, she’s grieving the loss of her fiancé. Even now, more than two years later, which is why it’s important he be there for Meghan as her confidante, without checking out her stellar ass. However, his heart is pulling him toward her…
Together. How do you move past the hurt and pain to forge a new normal? Can Nick and Meghan make a go of their connection? What happens when their newfound love is put to the ultimate test as another is brought in the mix: a ghost.
*Though part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone. It is intended for those 18 and over due to graphic language, descriptive sex, and the world’s most inappropriate grandparents.
Suddenly, being alone with Nick in the dojo has me nervous. I’m shifting my weight from foot to foot and not completely sure what to do with my hands. “Hey,” he finally says, offering me a small smile.
“As I’ll ever be,” I grumble, not really sure if I can do this.
Or if I should.
No, I definitely should. After what happened last week, a woman should know a few basic self-defense moves.
Nick heads over to the bench and unties his belt, dropping it on the bench beside my bag. Then, he strips off his white jacket.
My jaw hits the floor.
Unlike our time on the boat Monday, where he wasn’t wearing a shirt, this time he’s wearing a white tank top underneath, and if it’s possible, I think it makes him hotter. It hugs his very hard, very muscular upper body in a way that I’ve only read about in books. (Or saw one time when Linkin stripped for my sister, Lexi.) His shoulders…my word, his shoulders. The definition and muscles are like a work of art. Nick turns back to face me. “Is this okay? It’s hot.”
Yep. Definitely hot.
“Umm, sure. Whatever. Fine.” I know I try to sound casual, but really, it just comes out like a bumbling, blubbering teenager.
“Good. Now come here,” he instructs, and the tone goes straight to the apex of my legs (which are practically shaking, by the way). Why does it sound dirty?
“I’m going to show you just a few moves to help you escape an assailant. The first is an open hand strike. You’re going to use the heel of your hand to strike some of your assailant’s most sensitive areas,” he teaches, demonstrating the move. “Aim for the eyes, nose, mouth, or neck.” He stands in front of me and holds my hand, positioning it and showing me the correct ways to execute. “Here,” he adds, moving my hand to his face.
I can feel his breath on the palm of my hand as I slowly shadow his movements, practicing without actually striking him.
“Good. Now, if he comes at you from behind, your elbow is a valuable weapon. It’s hard, and when thrust into his face, neck, or stomach, you could definitely buy some precious time to get away.” He moves behind me and I immediately thrust upward with my elbow. He easily dodges the blow, as mortification tinges my cheeks.
“Oh my God, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to try to hit you, it just…was a reflex,” I insist.
“You’re fine,” he chuckles. “It’s good for you to actually practice the moves. Well, except this next one. No need to practice the knee to the groin. Just know it’s one of the most effective ways to disarm an assailant. If done right, your perp will be lying on the ground, crying for his mommy while you run away,” Nick teases, holding his hand over his…area.
Of course, my eyes drop down.
Why wouldn’t they?
He was just referring to someone’s…package.
“Yeah, no need to practice that,” I quickly reply, again a blush burning my neck and cheeks.
Is it hot in here?
“Let’s go over a few ways to block a punch or slap,” he says, showing me a few techniques using my arms and hands, before finally demonstrating what to do if the assailant gets me down on the ground.
Yep, I’ve officially lost my mind. I’m practically rolling around on the mat with Nick, who is trying to teach me moves that might one day save my life. And all I can think about is the way his arms feel when they wrap around me or the way his package brushes up against my thigh, not once, but five times.
Yes, I counted.
“Okay, that’s the basics. I want to do a few of them in a real-life situation. Stand over there, and I’ll come at you. I want you to take me down.”
“Wait, what? I can’t take you down. You’re…big.”
And, cue the blush…
Nick chuckles. “I’ll be okay, honey. Promise.” Then he winks at me, and my entire body seems to catch fire. “Ready?”
No. I’m definitely not ready for this.

I thought I knew who I was.
A girl from Devon with a love of drawing.
A trip to Rome shows ancient forces at work, which I never knew existed.
Beauty in my world has died.
Can he save me from the encroaching darkness?
I’m the God of War.
The God of Masculinity.
If I want something I take it, such is the power I wield.
Is it really possible for a human woman to bring me to my knees?
History tells us of mighty Gods that once ruled the Earth. What it doesn’t say is that over time their powers were suppressed by hatred, violence, and suffering. Many have forgotten their true nature and those that remain behind strive for balance in a modern world.
Welcome to the Gods Reborn Series, a place where emotions can destroy a planet, supremacy is the ultimate goal, and the possibility of love can change everything that you know forever.
I haven’t read Claire before Beauty; however, I’m a fan of everything Anna. I will be creeping Claire’s work now! Kudos!
What hot-blooded woman wouldn’t want to tangle with that hunk of burnin’ hot lover, Mars?!!! Just makes my timbers shiver! When you dislike the villain, the authors do their work. Pluto – what a tool! Greedy, evil, and all things sinister. He needs his appendage peeled. The magnetism between Vicky/Venus and Mar is undeniable from the get go. I thoroughly enjoyed reading how Vicky came into her powers and how she and Mars had to overcome their own trials. The power of love trumps evil.
I look forward to seeing how Pluto gets his since getting emotions didn’t halt him. There’s lots of Gods and Goddess so reading how they all play out will be awesome! I can’t wait. KUDOS Ladies!!!!!
About Anna Edwards
Ok, this is the bit where I have to sell myself. Why is it so much easier to write about sexy blokes! Anyway.
I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an Accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.
In 2015 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It was also around this time that I became one of the founding members of a dramatic/erotic/dark roleplaying group on Twitter. It was wildly popular with both English and American followers. The writing helped me to overcome my depression by giving me an outlet to channel my thoughts into and not sit around worrying all day about things that would never happen. I took over responsibility for management of the group and responsibility for the development of our storylines. As well as playing at least ten different characters in the group ranging from an innocent virgin, bloodthirsty assassin and even a male lover. The success of the role-play spurred me on to writing novels.
I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality. Surrendered Control, my first book released in November 2016, combines two of my favourite travel destinations. India is where I lived for eighteen months with my husband and two children. My young son was only six months old when we travelled there. It was a fabulous time for us all and they learnt so much about the differing cultures, as well as, much to my husband’s chagrin, spending lots of money in the silk shops. The Control series will feature lots of international travel.
I have always been an avid reader. Mainly murder mystery in the past but with Beautiful Bastard I discovered a whole new set of novels and I haven’t looked back since. I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demure but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.
About Claire Marta
A native Brit, I live in Italy with my husband and daughter. When I am not writing and drinking copious amounts of tea, I enjoys taking photos of my adoptive country, trying to stay fit with running, reading amazing books and being a stay at home mother.
She’s opening a video-game themed cookie bouquet shop with her best friend. But even dreams come with stress and sleepless nights.
Their primary investor, Dante, is as overbearing in real life as he is on his award winning cooking show. On the other hand, he’s sexy as hell, and his boyfriend, Christopher, is as kind as he is a gorgeous, drool-worthy geek of a guy.
She likes looking, but she’d rather have a hands-on experience.
When the tension of trying to keep her business together threatens to tear Julie apart, Christopher’s got a solution for teaching her to share the workload. If she can surrender control in the bedroom, it might help her delegate in the office.
Is submission worth the cost?
What starts as game where blindfolds and submission are the board pieces becomes more serious. Until Julie discovers that Dante and Christopher have kept a secret from her that shatters her trust, leaving their hearts and jobs one move away from game over.
Twinsie Jo’s Review:
First off. Oh Christopher. Ooohlala.
So I was intrigued by Julie and Dante’s not so nice relationship while reading the first book. And when I realized they were getting their book, I knew this was going to be fun. The only thing I wished because I’m a freak and all, was that the first BIG fight they had, ended up in crazy hot intense sex. But I got why it didn’t happen. The tension was INSANE and it drove me nuts. But I also loved it. I’m a masochist that way.
I really loved the dynamic between this trio but I have to say, that I REALLY loved Christopher’s character. I’m partial to Dominant men so maybe that’s why? Either way, all three characters worked well together. I hope the author does more to this series although I’m not sure what other side characters could get stories. Either way, I’m satisfied if there is no more.
Claire might have thought that having one less man to deal with in the reality show Matchmaker would have made her life easier, but she was wrong. As they all get to know each other better, Claire discovers that being compatible with each man doesn’t make him an ideal mate. And, as they make their way through another week of dates, Claire finds that one of them doesn’t even want to be there…
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
So this one starts with the elimination and we get a whole new set of dates. I wonder how having one of the guys leaving would change the dynamics between the guys and even with Claire. This one started out with my heart in my throat. I’m telling you it is intense. Then the games begin now last time it was a physical challenge this time it was a mental challenge.
We get to see more of the guys personalities but at the same time we only see what Claire sees. I think there are things the guys are hiding from Claire. These guys I’m telling you they bend the rules and sometimes take it too far to get what they want. The dates that stand out the most to me were Darius and Grayson’s dates not because of where the guys took Claire but because they took time to talk and get to know more about Claire. There were some great dates and then there were some just OK dates.
Some rules were changed and some rules were bent a bit we got to see how each guy reached to things that occurred on their dates. Some handle things better than others. I’m seeing the ones that are all about Claire and who are all about themselves. I am cheering for Grayson and Darius to go to final two. These two always stand out to me and I really want to get to more about them. Now we have to wait to see who is the next one to go and what will be in store for Claire next.
“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging than Dirty Dancing, she–like Baby–won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance–and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.
Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?
TRIGGER WARNING: This book contains flashbacks of violence and drug abuse, and the impact of these factors on family members. If you have issues with these elements, this book is not for you.
Chicago’s premiere tattoo studio, House Of Payne, is across the street from the Mad Cow diner, but it might as well be on another planet as far as waitress Paradise Simone is concerned. She’s a good girl from Waukegan with a past she’d rather forget, and a future that goes only as far as the next day. What does she know about superstars and paparazzi?
But Pari does know danger when she sees it, and tattooist Max Kulagin has it written all over him. A proper Waukegan girl should know to steer well clear, but she can’t resist Max when he leaves beautiful, intimate art sketched out on cheap diner napkins.
Beautiful, intimate art…of her.
Max knows ugliness. He was born in it. Raised in it. Had it shoved down his throat every goddamn day. So when he stumbles across true beauty, he worships it. There’s a deep sensuality in the waitress who likes to suck on her pen whenever he’s around, and he’s just the man to bring that beauty out in her. She might be a lady in the street, but one look at Pari tells him she’s going to be a freak in the bed.
And in the shower.
And while he’s driving with her head going to town in his lap.
The life Max leads might be in the spotlight, but it’s Pari who gets caught in the glare. When her past catches up to her, it’s her life that holds all the excitement, and not in a good way. But there’s no force on earth that can take Max’s beautiful Paradise away now that he’s finally found it.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
Sooo, Max is probably some I’ve been waiting forever to read it seems, ever since he started talking to Essie in Steele’s book!!!I knew what I thought he was going liked from his first words and I’m glad to say he was so much MORE!!!!I also had pictured who he was going to look like, hello Josh Mario John!!!
Pari, she is someone who has been through some deep s**t, but she didn’t let that break her.She is someone that has become stronger than even she knew.
Pari works as a waitress at The Mad Cow, love the name, a diner across the street from the House of Payne shop.Max has been coming to the diner for a month and during that month he has left her little drawings on napkins.Sometimes funny drawings, sometimes drawings of her, and sometimes very naughty drawings of her.
As you can tell from the drawings that he leaves her, Max is a artist.He is one of the premier artist at the House of Payne, the top tattoo shop in Chicago if not the world.
I love how easy these two seem to come together it seems almost effortless, but let’s face it, it wasn’t.Max has spent that month falling more for the girl with the purple hair and killer buttthan he has for anyone else and Pari has spent that month secretly keeping his drawings and falling for him too.
When her past comes back to haunt her Pari thinks about leaving the city to be safe, but after hearing about her past Max vows to do everything in his power to make sure she is happy, safe, and staying by his side where she belongs.
I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so much while reading a book, not laughed just smiled because these are two characters that I can plainly see in my head and having a picture of Max in you head is a good thing!!
Gail did a wonderful job with Pari’s backstory, showed how you can overcome anything, if you have people that love you and you can trust at your side.She also wrote about the family that they have in the epilogue and it seems that Max and Pari get everything that could possibly want to make them happy.
I can’t wait to meet Tag in the next House of Payne story, I just know it’s gonna be a good one.
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.
My name is Bristol Mateo, and I am the tour manager for the #1 rock band, Cycle of Sin. It takes a lot to keep a band of five rockstars on schedule, but I’ve been doing it for just over two years now.
As a new tour begins, I find myself confused over what happened after a night of partying between shows. The kiss from each of them is laced with enough power to destroy me, and my mind is riddled with guilt over the things I feel for them individually.
Dean, Evan, Hunter, Sebastian, and Austin heat my body in ways that are deemed immoral. As we tour across the world, I find myself falling for each of them equally. When they vow their hearts to me as one, I realize I am meant to be loved by them all.
I belong to Cycle of Sin, and Cycle of Sin belongs to me.
***Warning…5 rockstars and 1 female….The possibilities are endless.
Ok, we all have our favorite bands. They may be boy bands, country bands, or rock bands whatever floats your boat and we all think “Man they are hot, I’d do one off them.” Well in Theresa Hissong’s Rocked our heroine Bristol is one lucky girl because she doesn’t have to choose, she gets them allllllllllllllllll!!!!!!
Bristol is the tour manager of the band Cycle of Sin, she and the five guys of the band have become great friends.
After a night of partying with the guys she finds herself unable to stop thinking about them, each and every one of them.
I will just say it, “ I want to be Bristol when I grow up’!!!! Dean, Evan, Hunter, Sebastian, and Austin all are in love with her and instead of trying to make her chose and causing drama in the band they decide to let her love them all.
First off that five guys all came to one decision about something is mind blowing and second what else is mind blowing is just them, lol.When there is danger coming for Bristol the guys all take awesome care to keep her safe.
This is Hissong’s first journey into Reverse Harem and I hope we get to see more from her, maybe a shifter one since her shifter stories are so good.Whatever it may be I will be reading it.

You like small and to the point novellas?Well than this one’s for you!!!!
Welcome to the small town of Haven, where the Grayson brothers live.The hot, hot, hot Grayson brothers!!
Most books, not all, give us the stories of a older man and younger woman or couples the same age, with this one Jenna Jacobs gives us the story of Gina, a older woman, and Nate, a hotter, younger man and until recently a virgin.
Gina is awesome!!She is a tough, no nonsense bar owner who is fighting her feelings with Nate.She is bound and determined that this is only going to be a fling, no matter how much it hurts her heart.
Nate is totally in love with Gina, after all he did give her his virginity and she is a great person too, who cares that she is older than him.When Gina’s life is in danger Nate shows age is northing but a number and goes to saves her.
This is why Jacob is one of my favorite authors, Revenge On The Rocks is a novella, however so much is packed into it!!!
Family looking out for family,love, danger, and let’s not forget hot sex!!!!I am sooo glad that there are more single Grayson brothers, because I can’t wait to come back to visit Haven!!
Nate had spent the day rotating the horses on the family ranch to ensure that each child attending Camp Melody—a respite for terminally ill and special-needs kids—would have a fresh mount. Though it was early April, the day was unseasonably warm. He’d worked up a hell of a sweat saddling, unsaddling, and grooming the steeds. When dinner was done, he’d been anxious to grab a shower and head into Haven. But brothers Nash and Noble had seized both bathrooms, forcing Nate to wait an extra thirty minutes to scrub the scent of horse and sweaty grime from his body.
It wasn’t until he hit town and pulled to a stop in front of the Hangover that anticipation and excitement replaced the lingering annoyance he’d felt toward his brothers. After pocketing his keys, Nate strode toward the bar, beyond ready to lay eyes on the sexy woman he’d been dreaming about all day…Gina.
But when he stepped through the door to find hiswoman wrapped in the arms of his twin brother, rage born of jealousy erupted within. As he watched Noble place a kiss on the top of Gina’s head, a fire of pure possessive rage thundered through Nate’s veins.
“Get your fucking hands off her,” he bellowed, eating up the floor in long, angry strides.
“Uh-oh.” A mischievous grin lit up Noble’s face, followed by a playful wink. “I think we’ve been caught, darlin’.”
Logically, Nate knew his brother was simply baiting him, and that Gina had absolutely no interest in his twin. Emotionally, none of that mattered. Noble had crossed the line and Nate was three seconds away from pounding his twin to dust. Nate and his five siblings had grown up teasing, tormenting, and ultimately beating the hell out of each other on a regular basis. He’d whooped Noble’s ass plenty of time and could damn well do it again.
“Caught? Caught doing what?” Gina blanched. She peeled out of Noble’s grasp, landing a sharp elbow to his ribs. “Get your paws off me, asshole! I’m not one of your bed bunnies. And get the fuck out from behind my bar.”
Nate was proud of his feisty woman for taking his dickhead brother to task, but he still wanted to beat the bastard ugly for touching her. Noble’s grin only widened as he hurried around the bar and sidled onto the barstool alongside Nash, who was smirking.
As if sensing Nate’s rage, Gina placed her hand on his chest to placate him before flashing him a gentle smile. “Would you mind hauling out another keg from the cooler for me, please?”
“You know I wouldn’t.” He narrowed his eyes at Noble. “Touch her again, asswipe, and you die. Got it?”
All traces of humor left the man’s face. He raised his hands in surrender. “I was just messing around, lover boy. No need to get your tampon stuck sideways.”
His muscles grew taut. Grabbing Noble’s shirt, Nate hauled him up off his seat. Fury rippled outward as they faced off, nose-to-nose. “Mess around with someone else. Gina’s off-limits.”
“Chill out, man. Christ, I didn’t mean anything by it.”
Nate released his brother with a powerful shove and an evil glare.
Nash let out a low whistle and slapped Noble on the back. “You just got shit on.”
“Shut the fuck up, or I’ll shit on you,” he countered, smacking Nash upside the back of the head.
Ignoring his idiot brothers, Nate exhaled a ragged breath before locking his stare on Gina. The rage inside him instantly melted, replaced by the fiery hunger of demand. She flashed him a carnal smile, then turned and headed toward the back room. As he followed behind her, Nate’s stare was glued to the sexy sway of her ass. He moved in close behind her, Nate cupped her tempting orbs in both palms. Once they’d made their way around the corner, Gina abruptly stopped. Pivoting, she wrapped her arms around his neck and pressed in tight against his chest. Nate’s cock roared to life as her hard nipples scraped the flesh beneath his shirt. Gripping her ass tighter, he slanted his lips over hers, rocking his lengthening erection between her legs, and swallowed her gasp.
With a tiny giggle, she pulled back. A provocative smirk tugged her lips. “I missed you today, too.”
Lifting onto her tiptoes, she pressed her lips to his.
Nate had kissed her a million times. Still, every time his mouth met hers felt like the first. Sliding a hand to her strawberry-blonde curls, he fisted her mane and tilted her head back. He saw her mutual need, raw and scorching in her pale blue eyes…could practically taste the desire pulsing through her system. It was all the incentive he needed. Pressing his mouth to hers again, he delved desperately past her lips and swirled his tongue deep inside her heated wet silk.
