So what’s a powerful witch to do? Why, organize a league of magical warriors, of course!

Elea recruits and trains a fighting force to take down the Tsar.

ARC REVIEW: POWER STRUGGLE By Paige Fieldsted

 

Title: Power Struggle
Author: Paige Fieldsted
Genre: Erotic Romance

Release Date: November 30, 2017
Cover Designer: Concierge Literary Designs & Photography https://www.facebook.com/cldesignsky

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

I gave up on love twenty years ago, when my fairytale ending was ripped out of my hands. These days I want hot sex, and that’s it. Jameson Beck is experienced, confident, and so sexy it should be a sin— a perfect distraction from the murder trial taking over my life. Now I’m expected to work with him every day and ignore his never-ending advances? Yeah, right. I can’t keep my distance, not even with Jameson threatening everything I’ve worked for the past ten years.

Olivia Roberts is the epitome of a blonde bombshell. She’s hot, feisty, and isn’t afraid to talk dirty. She fights me at every turn, but that only makes me want her more. Too bad she’s the one person standing between me and the partnership I’d do anything for. Now Olivia is making me question it all. I thought my career was enough. I thought I didn’t need love. But now I don’t think I can live without it.

 

 

REVIEW:

Power struggle is the first novel I have read by this author, and it won’t be the last. I was pulled into the story right away. I always like reading dual POV especially in these intense, and very adult situations. We meet Olivia Roberts an extraordinary defense attorney we a great record at one of prestigious Law Firms in New York. Ten years of her life was devoted to her career hoping to be made partner, leaving little time for relationships.
All’s well until one James Beck super attorney at law is recruited by Olivia’s firm with offer of a partnership. I have set the scene, but after arriving in New York early James goes out on the town and meets this fabulous women, who like  him only wants sex and no relationship just like him. After one of the best nights of his life he meets her Monday morning the new law firm he is started at.
Then the action and a war start. This is a very entertaining book with scorching sex scenes, a murder trial runs through the story. I can’t believe this is Paige’s 2nd book. The writing puts you right there with them. I can’t recommend this enough if enjoy reading about 2 people over the age of thirty getting it on with such scorching hot passion.

ARC REVIEW: THE VEXEN’S LEAD ( Kit Davenport #1 ) By TATE JAMES

THE VIXEN’S LEAD

 

The Vixen’s Lead
Tate James
(Kit Davenport, #1)
Publication date: September 19th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance

I want vengeance so badly that I can almost taste it. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. So, I did what any privileged, adopted boarding school girl would do. I slapped on a secret identity and became an internationally renowned thief, known as The Fox. Nobody knows me. Nobody can catch me.

Or so I thought…

It turns out; I have what they want. Special abilities. And trust me, these abilities are coveted–and dangerous. Now, I don’t know who to trust or where to go. Peril lurks on every corner as I try to uncover my past and origin. Teaming up with unlikely allies may be my only chance at survival or my biggest mistake. Only time will tell.

I’m Kit Davenport and this is only the beginning.

Goodreads / Amazon

REVIEW:

I do love getting to read new series, with a kickass Heroine, and a house of hot hunks. We meet Kit and her best friend Lucy in the middle of a robbery. Kit is doing the robbery, and Lucy hacking into the computer security. By day they are two young ladies at a private Academy, bemoaning the lack of decent male stock when a set of twins start that seem older and more ripped than normal guys there age group sparks Kit’s interest. This all happens after a tracking device is found in one of the stolen items.

That’s just the beginning, hold on for the start off a rollercoaster adventure, that introduces all the main characters in a great beginning of this new series. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and can’t wait for Book two to see what mischief Kit can start with the Omega Group,

Author Bio:

Tate James was born and raised in the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand) but now lives in Australia with her husband, baby and furbaby.

She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.

EVERYTHING_TEASER1

REVIEW:    ♥♥♥♥♥

Almost Everything, is more magic from Christie Ridgeway and Crescent Cove. Beach house number 9 is where Vance army medic was to spend a month giving dead Colonel Parker’s daughter Layla a month long vacation as the dying wish of her father.

Only one problem he was waiting for a 9 year old girl. Layla comes to Crescent Cove with her Cupcake van, and her uncle Phil. So when he meets a beautiful woman instead of a young child, he decides he can’t let a fellow officer down or a beautiful woman and decides to keep his word. Vance and Layla feel the sparks immediately right from the word go, but both are determined to not act on the temptation.

Both Layla and Vance are wounded and broken from life, even though they hide it well. Layla pretends to be his girlfriend in front of his estranged family. Vance is completing her father’s helmet list for him. Gradually we see the healing and the love grow between them and to find out how, you need to read the book.
This is another of her books that is a feel good summer holiday of Romance.

ARC REVIEW: BEHIND THE BARS, The Music Street Series By Bestselling Author BRITTAINY C. CHERRY

 

Behind the Bars, the first beautiful and emotional standalone in the all-new Music Street Series from Brittainy C. Cherry is LIVE!

Behind the Bars Wrap

Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: December 7th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.

The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.

She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.

Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

REVIEW:

Wow what a beautiful story, I think I still have a few tears in my eyes. We first meet Jasmine and Elliott when they are sixteen, and they have such a beautiful connection. They recognise the music in their souls and the love. Jasmine is heartbroken leaving behind her stepfather and Elliott.
New Orleans is the first time Jasmine felt at home, but her mother drags her away to England and carries on pushing Jasmine into being a pop star, something she doesn’t want. Finally she has enough and goes home to New Orleans.
They both start to live again, and it was lovely to read. There is heartbreak, and then there is Hope and Love. I can’t recommend this enough, but get your hankies out. I can say you will have a smile on your at the end. This story had heart and a happy ending.

VILLAINS_TEASER2

REVIEW:

Well Madison has been stalking Harley Crow, s was obsessing over him, but Harley is usually on his own, and as Marlowe was never working in his area they had never connected before. The Spiked Roses exclusive Men’s Club sets up tastings, which was all different themes. When The Dark and Deadly is announced, and Harley is attending Madison can’t resist signing up.
This is not a pretty romance wrapped up with pretty words. If you read the first in the Series you may have some idea. This is a hired assassin, a paid killer, and he thinks he has a dark soul. Marlowe got her wish and went home with Harley for a weekend. This is a dark and dirty tale, and Harley couldn’t have a woman that is not afraid of him and makes him feel things. So things have to get more deadly .
So this was something I enjoyed if that’s the right word. Alta Hensley always writes well, and I am always are pulled into the story. This Series is not for the faint of heart.

ARC REVIEW: MR ALL WRONG By R.C. STEPHENS

He’s not your average governor. And she’s definitely not a traditional first lady.
Mr. All Wrong by R.C. Stephens is LIVE!

Mr All Wrong BC

MR ALL WRONG

R.C. STEPHENS

GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

 

BLURB:

The first time I met Evie Harper, she threw a cream pie at my face. I actually hadn’t met her, just saw her. It was more like she hated everything I stood for and showed me her opinion with an airborne cream pie. Yes, she smacked me front and center on my face. The second time I saw Evie, I didn’t realize she was the cream-pie-throwing bandit, and she took my breath away in a flowing red gown at a gala.
Of course I couldn’t resist her looks, so I asked her to dance. She called me a schmuck and stalked off.
My own Cinderella ran away from me. I shouldn’t have chased her down. We were all wrong for each other. But her fire red hair and feisty personality reeled me in, and I was hooked. Chicago’s most renowned playboy was finally falling head over loafers. At least it felt that way because she was like no other woman I’d met before . . . Evie was special . . .
Problem was I had trust issues when it came to women. Freud would’ve probably said it was my mother’s doing. Somehow Evie made me believe in her . . . trust her . . .
Big damn mistake!
One I hope I won’t live to regret . . .
But then again how could someone so wrong for me turn out to be so damn perfect?

REVIEW:

Wow I was blown away by this book, it was not what I was expecting, and it was much more.
Colton fell in love with Evie after throwing a pie in his face. Evie fascinated Colton, he was use to woman throwing themselves at him. So when she ran from him, he chased.
This has so much more than a straight forward romance. I loved the relationship between Colton, Evie and Carter. I don’t want to spoil the story for you. There is a lot going on, and you won’t expect any of it. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
I was glued to my kindle, and it ended up being an all nighter.

ARC REVIEW: THE BRITISH KNIGHT By USA Today Bestselling Author LOUISE BAY

 

The British Knight, an all-new contemporary romance by Louise Bay

TheBritishKnight.Ebook.jpg

The British Knight by Louise Bay
Release Date: December 5th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met.

As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.

REVIEW:

I have really enjoyed reading about Violet and Alexander, or Mr Knightley. Where have I heard that name before? This is a lovely romance, and they are a great couple from the word go. Violet is employed to try and sort out his paperwork, and get his billing up to date.
This is set mostly in London, and Louise describes Lincoln Inn, and chambers so well. I had a cousin who was barrister there, and it brought back memories. If you enjoyed The Duke of Manhattan, this is Scarlett little sister. This had everything you would like in it like hot sex, a hunky man, great banter and a couple worth cheering on. They were perfect for each other, and I was hooked from the beginning. This to me was the perfect entertaining romance.

MICHAEL_TEASER4

REVIEW:

I absolutely loved this delightful Christmas tale, in a nice bite size chunk of feel good cheer. I fell in love with Michael who after having his heart broken closed himself off from feeling anything good or bad.
Then he meets up with his best friends little sister Holly who has decided to bring back the happy man she has known and loved since she was a child.
Before we know it cyclone Holly has attacked Michael’s unhappiness and caused a dent in the walls around his heart. That’s all from me, enjoy the run up to Christmas with Holly and Michael’s road to their happily ever after.

About the Authors:

F.G. Adams writes contemporary and paranormal romance about sexy alpha heroes and feisty-mouthed heroines. The wonder twins forming F.G. enjoy a healthy obsession of reading that started at a young age. Their books reflect an avid imagination that was cultivated by their grandmother who taught them the mind has no limits and to use both hands when reaching for the stars. Partners in writing, they both thrive on creating unique storylines for you, the reader to enjoy.

When not writing, you can find them on a beach with their significant other enjoying the waves or riding a Harley on a country road somewhere in the USA.

At last, Elea has found the love of her life. Unfortunately, the evil Tsar Viktor is about to unleash an army of twisted mages bent on killing everyone Elea cares about… including the man who’s stolen her heart.

REVIEW:

I don’t know how Christina Bauer manages to do it, I have been hooked on the Angelbound Series, and then I discovered this series. It seems I’ve waiting ages for this book I just couldn’t see how it was going to be resolved. As always nothing is ever easy for our kickass heroine. I thought she had Rowan and the casters now, that’s too easy for Elea.
As always they have a great cast of characters that have appeared through the books in the Series. Also a visit from vindictive Victor put in his usual appearance trying to take over the worlds.

I did love Rowan’s little brother Jicho, and his magic ship. This book was a compelling read, if you have never read this series, I really recommend it, as Christina always develops such rich worlds with great characters. Even the baddies are inventive with their schemes. I was very happy with the outcome, and we ended on a happy note. As always it was feast for the brain, and gives the imagination at a FIVE Star work out.
