Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?

REVIEW:

I do enjoy one of Jami Davenport’s Seattle Sports Romances, but I have to say this one was one of my favourites. Matt, Vi, and the boys was such a lovely treat.
At the beginning it was a meeting of the Odd Couple Vi the tattooed stripper, and Matt the straitlaced man who likes his life ordered and sane. The chemistry between them was unwelcome at first, but neither can resist other.
I loved Vi with the boys, and the healthy food she tries to feed them made me laugh.
This was a sweet sexy love story about two lost people who found each other and made their lives complete. I especially like imagining a lot sweaty sexy hunks playing Hockey. Matt was a great surprise to me, he always seemed boring on the surface, but he was a real surprise. If you enjoy a good sports romance then this the one for you.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an Honest review.

ARC REVIEW: PULLED UNDER ( a Walker Security Novel #2 ) By New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES

PULLED UNDER by Lisa Renee Jones
NOVEMBER 28, 2017

Pulled Under Cover[115489]

PULLED UNDER

WALKER SECURITY NOVEL

RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 28TH 2017

BLURB:

A new sexy standalone from Lisa Renee Jones…

He is blond, tattooed, and dangerous. She’s as beautiful as she is mysterious and could be his destruction…

Asher wasn’t always a member of the elite Walker Security team, he was a billionaire’s son, who rebelled against his father’s controlling hand, and ended up in New York City’s underground of drugs, rock n roll, and danger. But that is long behind him, and while his tattoos and long blond hair remain, he’s now a chameleon, far more comfortable in a suit and tie than a leather jacket.

Or so he likes to tell himself.

But now Walker Security needs him back inside the underground club scene for a police case they’re working. Women are dying, murdered, and the clock is ticking until another victim is claimed. When Asher is pulled back into this toxic world he meets Sierra, who is as beautiful as she is mysterious. A woman who calls to a darker side of him, long suppressed, unleashing it in what becomes wicked hot passion and obsession. But Sierra has a secret, one that leads her, and Asher, to a dangerous place, and game, with dangerous players, and the game is about life or death.

EXCERPT:

“You want more now, and yet you don’t want it enough to make it end. And I already don’t want it to end, Sierra.”
She leans into me, her head resting on my shoulder, emotion that isn’t pleasure radiating off of her and crashing into me. I cup her face and tilt her chin up, my thumb stroking her cheek. “What are you thinking?”
“Nothing. Everything. Can you kiss me again already?”
“Where, Sierra?”
“Where?”
“Where do you want me to kiss you? Tell me.”
“Everywhere.” She pushes to her toes, and her lips find mine, looking for an escape, trying to drive her demons away.
I want to demand her answer, make her tell me where she wants my mouth, but I feel her desperation, her need to escape whatever is in her head. And so, I press my lips to hers, I kiss her mouth, drinking her in, and I don’t taste him this time. I taste her. I taste us. I taste need and hunger and passion. “I want you naked,” I say, my hands sliding inside her jeans and panties. “In every possible way, Sierra.”
“I’m pretty sure I’m already there, and it’s terrifying.” She flattens her hand on my chest. “If you turn into an asshole, I swear—”
“You can punish me,” I promise, “and I’m still willing to offer suggestions.”
“If you turn into an asshole after I trusted you,” she says. “I won’t need suggestions, Mr. Ex-Navy SEAL who won’t be able to hide from my wrath.”
Fuck, I’m crazy about this woman. “Good thing I’m not going to turn into an asshole. I want you naked,” I repeat, and this time, I make it happen. I lower myself to one knee and take her jeans and panties with me. My arm wraps her waist and I lift her, dragging her clothing away, and setting her back down. My hands settle on her hips then and I look up at her. She stares down at me, the simmering look in her eyes all about arousal, submission. And I want that from her and not because it’s some sex game, of which I could play and play well.
I press my lips to her belly and just that easily she trembles, and it only makes me want more. Everything is more with her. I drag my mouth lower and lower…

REVIEW:

This is book two in The Walker Security Series, and it never fails or I’m very fickle because I been in love with Kyle from Deep Under. Now I’m in quandary because Asher really does for me. There is nothing sexier than one of Lisa Renee Jones Heroes they always feel like the real deal.
Sorry I was focusing on Asher, I can’t help it. On another note I always have a lot of respect for her heroines, and Sierra did not disappoint. The more you get to know about her the more kickass Sierra becomes.
When these two get together under such extreme circumstances you can feel the attraction sparking between them. All this with a life and death situation that Lisa weaves with her usual expertise. I was glued to my kindle, and ended up reading through the night.

To me this is a five star feast in every respect.
Even though this is about Asher and Walker Security they can be read as a standalone, each couple get their HEA, but we meet all the bunch through each story. Anyway this is a great series so give one a try.

REVIEW:

The Infinity Gene is the sequel to The Butterfly Code from the Girl on Fire series by Sue Wyshynski. It’s a long awaited addition to the series, with the first released in 2015. It only took me a minute to get back into the series, to find myself in the trans-humanistic world again, but once I jumped in I was hooked. Aeris is a compelling character, full of strength, naivety, love, and determination.
During the first book she was thrust into a new world, one that she thought would give her answers about her mother, but instead left her with more questions. In book two we see even more so how she has embraced this new version of the world she has found and how there’s a place for her in it, even if it wasn’t truly meant to be. Hunter is back, of course, and as lovely as ever. We don’t get enough of him, though we do see the lengths he is willing to go for Aeris. We also revisit with several of the other genetically modified humans, as well as meet the others that we have only known of by title, The Winterborn Survivors.

Wow I love these kind of books, as we all know it’s only a matter of time before this things happen, or have they already? The first book the Butterfly Effect pulled me into this series. The Infinity Gene has kept me there. I don’t know what to say, I don’t want give anything away. I will say this carried straight after book one finished. Aeris is lured to an interview, about writing music for movie and television. Once there she is attacked, while there she see a young girl tied to a chair and rescues her, but she finally gets away only to find the Tribunal is coming, and because of her Hunter’s life is in danger. Aeris she has to leave him to save him.

As we all know nothing is that easy, but I ‘m waiting to read book three which is now on Kindle unlimited. This one of those that keep you hooked, and this definitely a five star read for me, and I can’t wait for more.

REVIEW:

This book three in this magical series, this time it was P.O. As we know if you have read any of the books in series, when one of the guys meet their woman they know immediately in an almost a spiritual experience.
P.O can’t believe the beautiful girl he sees from the tables outside the coffee shop. They began to communicate by their computers and mobile phone.as he goes back to Boston to finish he’s his double degrees at MIT. Very soon Aurele decided to write to Olivier as she did not want Olivier to find  out she was deaf.
This is an enjoyable book. As we know it always nice to catch up with guys and their women and family. This is a delightful slice of this magical interlude. It was great to see Olivier get his HEA.

About DIRTY FILTHY FIX:

I like sex. Kinky sex. The kinkier the better.

Every day, it’s all I think about as I serve coffee and hand out business agendas to men who have no idea I’m not the prim, proper girl they think I am.

With a day job as the secretary to one of New York’s most powerful men, Hudson Pierce, I have to keep my double life quiet. As long as I do, it’s not a problem.

Enter: Nathan Sinclair. Tall, dark and handsome doesn’t come close to describing how hot he is. And that’s with his clothes on. But after a dirty, filthy rendezvous, I accept that if we ever see each other again, he’ll walk right by my desk on his way to see my boss without recognizing me.

Only, that’s not what happens. Not the first time I see him after the party. Or the next time. Or the time after that. And as much as I try to stop it, my two worlds are crashing into each other, putting my job and my reputation at risk.

REVIEW:

Dirty Filthy Fix is a slice of life from The Fixed Trilogy for 1001 Dark Nights series. In this Dirty Filthy Fix we meet Patricia, Hudson Pierce’s so prim and proper secretary. Who on Saturday nights goes to sex parties where she very strict rules on how she conducts herself.
Then she meets Nathan Sinclair who is a partner at the same company as Donovan Kincaid from Dirty Filthy Rich Men Duet. Immediately Trish is attracted to Nate as soon as they meet at one of Saturday night Open Door sex parties, so she knows he is no stranger to dirty kinky sex.
What Trish doesn’t expect is the connection she feels for him. At the parties Trish never takes off her mask, so she gobsmacked when Nate appears for an appointment with her boss and recognises her straight away.
I don’t know how Laurelin does it, as always I was glued to my steaming kindle as this book is HOT and filthy goes without saying.
This is a novella, but it didn’t feel like it. It never felt rushed and for the commitment phobe like Trish,and their unconventional outlook on life. The road to their Hea was worked out in a less standard end which fitted the couple well. I can’t recommend this book enough, it’s a great edition to Laurelin’s Dirty Filthy, and Fixed universes. I can’t wait for the Audio copy so I can enjoy it all again.

This tight end is at the top of his game.

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

REVIEW:

This is an enjoyable tale about a girl and boy who meet and really like each other a lot. There’s only one thing wrong, the girl called Layla who’s family are football fanatics, so much so her mother gave birth to her in the football Stadium while Ohio State while playing their Arch rivals Michigan and unfortunately they lost.
Thus begins a fierce hatred begins that is instilled in the children especially their daughter who is now Captain of the cheerleaders.
The boy named Jay comes from a normal family, who only support Michigan because their son plays for the College football.
This is a lighthearted look at the Rivalry between two college football teams that spills over into Jay and Layla’s secret romance, that causes all sorts of problems. I loved Jay he was so smitten with Layla, but it takes Layla longer to realise her feelings. This is sweet love story, that had me chuckling at times at some of things Kayla got up too. This is an amusing book that I read in one go,and left me with a smile on my face.

HUNGER MOON BC

 

Hunger Moon
Alexandra Sokoloff
(The Huntress/FBI Thrillers #5)
Publication date: October 24th 2017
Genres: Adult, Mystery, Thriller

Revenge has no limits.

Special Agent Matthew Roarke has abandoned his rogue search for serial killer Cara Lindstrom. He’s returned to the FBI to head a task force with one mission: to rid society of its worst predators. But as the skeletal symbols of Santa Muerte, “Lady Death,” mysteriously appear at universities nationwide, threatening death to rapists, Roarke’s team is pressured to investigate. When a frat boy goes missing in Santa Barbara, Roarke realizes a bloodbath is coming—desperate teenagers are about to mete out personal, cold-blooded justice.

Hiding from the law, avenging angel Cara Lindstrom is on her own ruthless quest. She plans to stay as far away from Roarke as possible—until an old enemy comes after both her and the FBI, forcing her back into Roarke’s orbit. This time, the huntress has become the hunted . . .

Goodreads / Amazon

REVIEW:

Wow this book blew me away, but I have to say you really needed to read the books in order. Otherwise you would find it hard to really understand Cara’s motivation.
This book was more of a bigger picture, overall what was going on in the country and how it affected normal people.
I was riveted in the story, and the way it played out. This is not for the fainthearted, but if you have read the rest of the books in this series you will know what to expect.
Special Agent Mathew Roarke has returned to the FBI to head task force whose mission is rid society of its worse sexual Predators.
Unfortunately his team is sent to investigate the attacks on universities by Bitch on Halloween, where they leave dummies as the skeletal symbols of Santa Muerte, “Lady Death,” mysteriously appear at universities across the country. The message to rapists beware, we know who you are? That is just the start, you will have read it yourself to learn more.
This is a must read if you have read the series, if you haven’t read the series I would start now. I was blown away by this book, and definitely would give more than 5 stars if I could.

ARC REVIEW: A RANCHER’S HEART ( Heart Falls Book One ) By New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.

 A RANCHER'S HEART BANNER

 

A new pic

 

Release Date: November 14, 2017
Series: Heart Falls #1

This cowboy has given up on love, but the new nanny might just make him change his mind. The first in a brand-new series from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.
Caleb Stone is wearing too many hats and it’s making him crankier than usual. He’s a cowboy, a father, and the head of his large family—and has been since tragedy claimed his parents over ten years ago. The ranch is struggling, but it’s the title of single dad that’s got him tangled up in knots. He needs a full-time, live-in nanny at the Silver Stone homestead in Heart Falls, Alberta, to help with his two little girls, but the woman about to arrive on his doorstep? Tantalizing, tempting, and trouble with capital T’s.
Tamara Coleman doesn’t regret the choices that led to losing her job, but she definitely needs a fresh start. When a friend recommends her for a nanny position in a new town, she swears this time it’ll be different. No more acting on impulse—except sexy, gruff Caleb is exactly the kind of man who pushes all her buttons. And what’s more, it’s so much fun to push his in return. Sparks fly between Tamara and her gorgeous boss, but she can’t risk her position, and he doesn’t dare risk his heart.
With two people fighting their true natures, something’s going to give. Luckily, there’s more than one way to capture a rancher’s heart

EXCERPT:

Caleb’s expression might be unreadable, but his eyes—
He couldn’t hide the fire burning in his gut. Lust, not anger.
It appeared his little lesson had backfired.
Inspiration hit—a bad, wicked idea that was so wrong. So very wrong, but now that it was fully formed, stopping was damn near impossible.
She needed to turn away.
Need to grab on and take a bite.
God, she needed a bite of Caleb Stone.
Do it. Take a bite.
Fine, it was a bad idea, but she’d blame the stupidity on the heat in her veins, bubbling now with sexual frustration as well as anger.
Tamara lifted her chin and looked him in the eye as she adjusted position. Closer. Closer, until she could skim her fingertips over his impossibly hard chest. Circling and teasing the light dusting of curls and the tight surface of his nipples.
“I’m sorry, baby. You’re right. I misspoke. You are just fine without a woman. Your bed isn’t cold and lonely.” As she spoke she slid her hand down. Slowly, lower, until her thumb stroked the thick ridge she found waiting, pressed to the front of his jeans. “You don’t spend the night with your fist wrapped around your cock.”
Caleb swallowed hard. His pulse raced at the base of his throat.
“Tamara—” The word was a harsh growl.
But he didn’t move away.
“Or maybe you do. Taking care of yourself—I’m sure you take care of yourself no problem.” Tamara unsnapped the button on his jeans. He grabbed her wrist. “Not that I blame you. I do the same thing.”
The sound of his zipper being lowered meshed with a dangerous rumble deep in his chest. He let go of her hands, and then, oh my God, he was touching her. Skimming his palms up her waist, slowing as he passed her breasts.
She ached. She waited, no longer angry, but on fire with desire.
Caleb sucked for air, chest heaving as he fought—for control? For strength? He slid his fingers into her hair and tightened, lifting her face.
Then his lips crashed down and he was kissing her senseless.

REVIEW:

It was with great pleasure to receive an ARC of this book from the author, as I am a great fan of The Rocky Mountain House Series. This is a spin off with Tamara Coleman goes to Heart Falls to be Caleb Stone’s nanny. We met the Stone family in Jessie and Dare’s book.
Tamara has a heart of gold, but is very outspoken just what Caleb and his daughters Sasha and Emma need. This new series has a similar feel to it as Rocky Mountain House. Always family first, and we get to know the Stone brothers. Tamara makes friends easily so we meet some of the characters from Heart Falls.
This was the first in a series so we had background to family and the ranch. It was beautiful to watch Caleb learning to love again. Tamara was gone on Caleb from the first meeting, but fought the attraction because of confusing the little girls. Caleb benefited with Tamara unfettered truths and her outspokenness. This is a wonderful start to a new series, and I am looking forward to  Book two A Rancher’s Song.

The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.

She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.

Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.

The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.

One shot. One kill.

REVIEW:

I do enjoy these series of books and especially enjoyed Andre’s. I think many of us would enjoy a book about ex-marine hunk so Alpha you just want to swoon. This is about Andre falling for someone who is in hiding, and finds himself looking after the woman of his dreams.
That the thing about these books the woman are strong, after suffering from a traumatic past. They come out stronger keeping the men on their toes. Kendell stands up for herself very well, and keeps Andre on his toes in and out of the bedroom. This is a great bit of escapism with lots of hot men, with plenty of hot sex thrown. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it, and it is always great to see the rest of guys in action. I can honestly say I finished this book in one evening . So suspend believe and enjoy an evening of escapism

Author Bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

ARC REVIEW: WICKED TORTURE ( Stark World #3 ) By New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner

 

Wicked Torture, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner

WickedTorture_Ecover_FINAL.jpg

Outwardly, Noah Carter is riding high as the tech world’s hottest new genius. Inside, he’s still reeling from the abduction of his wife and baby daughter eight years ago, and then the devastating discovery of his child’s body. For years, he kept up hope that his wife was alive, but now that she’s been declared legally dead, he’s thrown himself even more deeply into his work, cutting himself off from emotional ties because they just hurt too damn much.

Then he meets Kiki Porter, an eternal optimist with a killer work ethic and dreams of fronting a band. And everything changes. Even though he tries his damnedest to fight it…

Sexually, they are combustible together. But their true fire is emotional, though it is a slow to burn. But once it lights, it is all consuming. The relationship grows emotionally, the sex is hot, things are good.

But just when it’s looking like they might have a real future together, the past comes back to haunt them. And Noah’s going to have to decide what he’s willing to give up for love …

REVIEW:

 

It is always good to step inside the wider Stark world. In this standalone we meet Noah, who has survived a terrible personal tragedy losing his wife and daughter to kidnappers some years previously.
Kiki now on her own after her divorce, but runs a successful company and finally getting her life on track. I love second chance love stories they are usually older but not necessarily wiser. This was a complex love story, with the baggage Kiki carries from her childhood.

Noah carries guilt for how he left Kiki the first time, and guilt from the kidnapping and death of his wife and daughter Diana. The fact that this  is a second chance romance made all the emotional turmoil more understandable.
I loved this book it captivated me, and with the intense emotions Kiki and Noah felt I couldn’t put it down. I kept my fingers crossed for both of these damaged people.
That’s all from me, as I don’t won’t to spoil anything for you. Even though it was a pleasure to step into the Stark world. This can be read as standalone.

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

About J. Kenner

Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.

Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A five time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy). Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development with AwesomenessTV/Awestruck.

Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.

In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
