Jaine Diamond – Dirty Like Us (Dirty Series #0.5)

REVIEW

Hands Down – A 5 STAR Book. It was a fantastically fun page turner. It was better than even being a guest at Zane and Maggie’s event. In this short novella, the author covers every emotional angle from each character’s perspective without repeating the characters’ thoughts but also not skimming over what could be complicated feelings. It was fun, filled with humor, and had an excellent dose of hot and sexy. I’m not usually a fan of novellas, but this author ROCKED IT! I can’t wait to continue with this series!

BLURB

Rock god. Sex god. Total nightmare for women. And the only man who’d make Maggie a proposal so insane it just might work. A night of chance. An irresistible gamble… It’s time for Zane and Maggie to go all in.

Jaine Diamond – Dirty Like Brody (Dirty, Book 2)

REVIEW

I love love love this book! Without a doubt a 5 star book. As a reader, I was pulling for Brody and Jessa to get together from the first page. I was rooting for Jessa in spite of the fact that she was a supermodel. Typically, that I would automatically hate this kind of character. However, she was riddled with self esteem issues that made her real and likable. I respected Brody as his internal compass always pointed North, even if he walked along a diverted path.

There’s heat and angst in spades! I love how we learn about the progression of their relationship through the years that started during the age of adolescence. The way the characters acted were age appropriate throughout the book.

There are plenty of unexpected turns in this book. And don’t bother trying to guess the ending – great ending.

BLURB

He was all she ever wanted. Then she broke his heart…

As longtime manager of Dirty, the hottest rock band on the planet, gorgeous and brooding Brody Mason has had his share of beautiful women. Yet the only one he’s ever wanted is the one he never had—the one who tore his heart out.

Beautiful and elusive Jessa Mayes appears to have it all. Talent, money, and a glamorous life. But she also has a secret. Six years ago, she ran away—from her dream career as a songwriter with Dirty, and the only man she’s ever loved—without telling anyone why.

Now Jessa’s doing the one thing she swore she’d never do. She’s coming home—to be a bridesmaid in her brother’s rock star wedding… and face the mistakes of her past.

It won’t be easy.

Love this intense never is.

Dirty Like Brody is the second full-length novel in the Dirty series—a rockstar romance series about the members of the rock band Dirty and the women and men who love them.

Novels in the Dirty series are interconnected standalones, each with an HEA. (There are ongoing storylines that develop throughout the series, so reading them in order is not crucial but is recommended.)

L.D. Rose – Sweet Sacrifice (The Soul Mate Tree Book 9)

REVIEW

This book had great originality but I lost interest when a battle ensued with a snake-like creature and was then remedied with yet another snake. Admittedly, I really don’t like reptiles.

As a romance novel, the pull between Irene and Bash was authentic. Despite the elements that were off putting, the romantic elements were good enough that I was inclined to finish the novel. This is actually saying quite a lot as I really really despise reptiles.

This was the only book that I have read in this series and I felt as if I was missing a critical element.

BLURB

Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.

As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.

The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?

Olivia Cunning – Outsider (Exodus World Tour – Volume 2)

REVIEW

This review is months overdue, which is no indication on how much I enjoyed this book. If you have read my other reviews of the Sinners on Tour series, you would know that I am a huge Trey fan. I was thrilled to finally get to see the threesome of Trey, Reagan, and Ethan find their happily ever after. Based on the characters state of distress and lack of comfort with their sexuality, the majority of this book focuses on Reagan and Ethan. Each of them had to trudge uphill to openly embrace their relationships. I enjoyed the story but would have liked it more if Trey was more of the focus. Also, I didn’t think the ending was befitting the characters. While I savored the story, I was a bit disappointed. Nonetheless, I still would categorize this as a MUST READ book for fans of the series.

BLURB

Reagan Elliot should be living her dream…

She’s touring with Exodus End as their new rhythm guitarist and gaining more notoriety and fame than she ever imagined possible.

She’s earned the devoted love of not only one, but two spectacular men. Her committed threesome with sexy guitarist Trey Mills and her hunky bodyguard Ethan Conner is stable, loving, deep, and satisfying for all involved.

But sometimes the world sees things differently and is determined to destroy what it doesn’t understand.

Can Reagan’s relationship with Trey and Ethan survive the cruel backlash of the media, her family, and a bigoted public? Or will the talented musician lose everything she holds dear in the face of her own burgeoning doubts?

Outsider is the second book in the Exodus End World Tour series. It’s also the sequel to Double Time, the fifth book in the Sinners on Tour series.

Tiffany Reisz – The Confessions

REVIEW

This is a MUST READ! Okay, I would probably say that anything that is about Soren is a must read. But this really is worth it! I mean what was going through Soren’s mind when he first met Eleanor? The reader gets to be the fly on the wall for both Soren’s and Eleanor’s confessions. What could Eleanor have done that made her feel guilty? Bottom line, this book book is worth the price of admissions.

BLURB

Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire…

Father Stuart Ballard has been Marcus Stearns’ confessor since the young Jesuit was only eighteen years old. He thought he’d heard every sin the boy had to confess until Marcus uttered those three fateful words: “I met Eleanor.”

So begins the 40-page “The Confession of Marcus Stearns,” a moving coda to the RITA® Award-winning Original Sinners series. Originally published as a limited-edition paperback for the 2014 RT Booklovers’ Convention, and available worldwide for the first time.

This collection also includes “The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber,” a companion 36-page story written exclusively for this book.

And, finally, all secrets are revealed in “The Confession of Tiffany Reisz,” an exclusive, in-depth interview.

Joshua Edward Smith – Gravity (Entropy Book 3)

REVIEW

Sequels are difficult to write well but a trilogy is even more difficult. Gravity offers a great end to this story. There are sufficient time lapses to make things more interesting. The change in relationship status between the characters over time is done remarkably well. I didn’t find the sex factor as compelling as in the previous two books. But hey, that is simply my opinion. Nevertheless, the ending of the book was sensational. For those, like me, that need to see the resolution in characters’ lives, this is a must read novel.

BLURB

A chance meeting brings Sir and Lisa together after five years. But Sir is in a budding relationship and Lisa’s life is in chaos. Could a radical change in Sir’s situation finally let things work between them? Gravity is a complex and moving exploration of the turmoil older people face bringing romance and commitment back to single life.

Although the third in the Entropy series, this novel can be read as a standalone.

S. L. Finlay – Billionaire’s Little Sweetheart

billionaires-little

REVIEW

This is a sweet little taste of an age play story. I use the term age play over Daddy/little because the relationship seemed a bit contrived. In fact, Cindy is a drama major in college, which seriously affected the believability. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, you might want to give this book a shot.

There were parts of the book that were done quite well – the kind that pull at your heart. I would give this book … 3 STARS.

BLURB

When Cindy, a broke college student, who is tired of eating ramen, and borrowing money from her folks for text books, gets evicted from her dorm after a wild party thrown by her roommate, while she was away, the wrongfully accused finds an interesting housing ad in the paper.

A well-to-do older man, will allow her to stay with him for free, in her own self-contained apartment on his property right near campus, in exchange for a few hours cleaning a week. The deal seems too good to be true.

Cindy meets the rich older man, and quickly finds she would have done anything he asked, even if she didn’t need housing this badly.

He seems to take a shining to Cindy, letting her know after their expectantly long meeting regarding the room, that it’s hers if she wants it. He can hold it for as long as she needs.

When she agrees to move in though, the older man gives her a contract outlining her life living there. She will not only receive free accommodation, but also an allowance for personal expenses. Among other things, the contract says that she has to call him ‘Daddy’ and consent to wear ‘approved clothing’ when she is home.

Even with the oddness of his requests, Cindy feels she can trust this man, so she agrees to sign her new Daddy’s contact, and hands over control of much of her living situation to this man.

When she hands over control, he lets her into his heart. This is a fast-paced, sexy age play romance.

Warning: This romance novel includes scenes depicting sex acts, BDSM, and age play. If any of these things offend you don’t buy the book.
