Skylar Nightingale – Bound to You

51ecuhJzuEL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

This is a young adult romance novel.  This book does a great job of capturing the wishy-washiness of young adults in their early twenties.  They can fall in love easily, but have a hard time committing at such a young age.  They make mistakes and easily hurt one another.  The supporting cast of characters also reflects this idea of trying to be mature in a relationship but not quite having skills to follow through.

The ups and downs in this romance was spectacular.  It is full of unpredictable twists.  I couldn’t put down the book because of the uncertainty of how the story would end.

The way that the story was presented was a bit unorthodox.  One chapter is presented by Nina and then the following chapter is presented by Terry about the same time span but from his perspective.  It was a bit difficult to get used to the pace, but it was nice to see both of their points of view.

RELEASE DAY: M. Leighton – Brave Enough (Tall, Dark, and Dangerous #3)

51NfWuQtJGL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Perfect book for a book club that enjoys a glass a wine.  It pairs well with both a red and white.

Tag may work the land at the vineyard, but he isn’t a snobby sommelier.  He’s over 6 and half feet tall with broad shoulders and a narrow waste.  But more importantly, he knows the type of kiss that pairs and follows the type of wine.

Weatherly is looking for an opportunity to let go.  Lucky for her, she arrives at her family’s property, an amazingly romantic paradise, and finds the incredibly hot Tag whose more than happy to engage in some down and dirty sex.  After reading some of these scenes, I needed a cold shower more than the characters.

Best part of the book is that both main characters are multi-dimensional.  They are possessive, strong, shrewd, and articulate but can also show insecurities and regret.  They were anything but predictable, which made for a great read.

There were lots of twists that kept me turning the pages ’til the very end.

Katy Evans – Manwhore +1

51YxnVXAg+L._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Manwhore +1 is the fun sequel to Manwhore.

I like how the author uses social media to set the stage for communication about Saint.

My favorite line:

“He’s ruined sex with anyone else – something I don’t even want to try – and he’s even ruined sex with myself.”

A billionaire should have some over-the-top toys.  This series is filled with some fabulous forms of transportation.  In the midst of his hiatus with Rachel, Saint purchases a $2 million Pagani Huayra Gullwing.  Much more exciting way to deal with heart break than digging into a container of ice cream.  And, nice addition to his 4 Bugattis and Rolls Royce!

While I enjoyed the book, I would only award this book 4 stars because the story line is very predictable.

Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to reading the next novel in the series: Ladies Man that will be released on April 26, 2016.

Sophie Quinn – Mr. Prime Minister

51yGNmFJw4L._SX384_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

This was an absolutely refreshing twist on a story where a wealthy, powerful man falls for a plain simple woman.  If you are tired of those types of stories, you should consider reading this book.  The story line in this book is truly fabulous!

The dialogue in the book is great, too.  Each character has a unique voice and personality.  The supporting cast adds a lot of humor and sincerity to the book.  Perhaps, it is just because I’m an American, but I love reading the English jargon.

The book captures the essence of romance:

“You should pick someone not pretty, not funny, not rich or talented, not someone who loves you when you’re successful and beautiful, funny and upbeat.  You should pick someone that respects you now, at your worst, at your lowest, because if he does, then you know you’ll have a partner for life, no matter what happens.”

Dani René – Broken by Desire

unnamed-2.jpg

Lucien’s constant desire for Cassandra was impressive.  Pretty much anything she says, does, or wears gives him a hard-on.  After 171,00 words, and reading about the state of his length, I was achy.  Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, I wasn’t able to conjure him into reality from the well-written pages.

I really liked Cassandra, imperfections and all.  She is independent and doesn’t reveal her secrets.  I love her ability to move on with her life even when she’s been wrecked.

Then there’s Jayce – oh my my.  He’s the slutty character that you can’t really pin down but is genuinely lovable.

The plot is filled some great twists!  If you enjoy something new in a romance story, you seriously have to read this book.

The steamy scenes in this book are like a volcano that erupts for days – explosive, intense, and enduring.

Emma Chase – Appealed (The Legal Briefs Series #3)

518asJFqgDL._SX319_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Humorous, Fun, & Romantic!!  Another great hit by Emma Chase!!  This is an amazingly fantastic teenage lovers reunited story.

Let’s face it, teenage boys are selfish and immature, it’s not surprising that the relationship fizzled so quickly when then were young.  Their break up was realistic and emotionally true to their age.  It left both of them damaged for about 15 years.

Adult Brent is awesome.  He’s quit witted, great friend, and intelligent.  He also has a great sense of humor.  When his mom orchestrates an arrangement that leads him to share a room with Kennedy, he says

“Now she’s just creeping me out.  It’s one thing if I want to screw Kennedy ten different ways.  But to think of my mother cheering us on – sitting on the sidelines with a flag in one hand and foam cock in the other – is just wrong.”

Brent and Kennedy are an easy couple to want to cheer for.  Both of them come from extremely privileged homes and have trust funds to keep them happy, but they work their asses off at their legal jobs.  The heart of their relationship is based on the passion between them not on the lavish lifestyle that they could lead together.

Without spoiling the story – BEST twist on a teenagers reuniting love story.

D.W. Marshall – Stolen Flame

5178TrdLSjL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Synopsis

Stolen Flame:

Vivian is excited about this weekend. Why wouldn’t she be? She is finally turning twenty-one, and she knows for-a-fact that Liam, the man of her dreams is in love with her too. On the eve of her birthday, her world comes crashing down when she is taken from her home.
Now, instead of spending her birthday in Liam-heaven, she learns that she will be forced to take part in The Chamber, a lavish sex club for the world’s richest and most powerful men. She finds early on that she will not suffer her sentence alone. With the budding sisterhood of the six other women taken at the same time, along with an unexpected ally, Vivian will discover an inner strength and love that she never knew existed.

Review

Wow!!  This story stunned me by altering my perception as the scenes progressed.  The plot is intense and dark and pushes the limit of what I normally can handle in a story.  This wasn’t by any sense of the imagination a typical erotic tale.  The majority of the story takes place where the kidnapped girls are held captive in a sex club and are forced to satisfy 5 men, 5 days a week.  While this is a chilling to imagine, the strength of the characters, particularly Vivian, compelled me to continue reading and I couldn’t book down the book.  The author amazingly weaves a bit of romance into an extraordinary situation.  As a reader I was clinging to the romantic elements as much as Vivian was desperate to hold onto her love.

** Spoiler Alert ** (It’s a romance novel – an HEA is expected)

After the girls are released – the book gets intriguing.  Vivian champions the concept of embracing the bad things in life and continuing on.

What if a couple’s sex life moves in a direction where both are no longer comfortable?  Where is the long standing BDSM relationship between Nathaniel and Abby going?

Aubry Bondurant – Ask Me Something (The Something Series #2)

ask_me-1.jpg

Romance, humor, and drama – all wrapped into one book.

First, let’s talk romance.  Again, Bondurant breaks away from the normal workplace romance.  This isn’t a lust at first sight book where the weak woman falls at the feet of her boss.  Their relationship is based on years of friendship.  Sasha is a remarkably strong and successful woman and has a fabulously quick-wit tongue.  Brian is more easy going and enjoys Sasha’s challenging smart mouth.  While he may have a laid-back personality, he surprisingly demands control in the bedroom.  However, he’s not into pain play.  He’s all about pleasurable torture, making the steamy scenes very HOT.  Also, he notes that he’s not opposed to Sasha’s occasional desire of control when she states, “Maybe I want to be spontaneous and take you in my mouth without permission some morning.”

Ask Me Something

There’s tons of humor woven throughout the story – too many to quote, but here’s one:

Sasha gives Brian’s 22 year-old sister advice on what to do if the man she is attracted to does’t feel the same, “Okay, You get a big glass of wine, buy yourself a good vibrator, and you say to hell with him.  If he can’t realize that you’re a catch, McKensie, then it’s his loss.”

There’s well-written drama from all directions: family, work, and of course the relationship.

The happily-ever-after included a few delightful twists that left me smiling for days.
