Review: MASTERING HER SENSES by Laura Kaye!

MASTERING HER SENSES - Review Tour banner    

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life. Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

My Review: I'm smack dab in the middle when it comes to my feelings on this one. I can definitely say it wasn't as good as the previous book in the series, which I totally loved. But this wasn't bad, just.. okay. 

My biggest issue was that the big climax of the story was the plot equivalent of the "big hill" on a kiddie roller coaster. Or maybe a speed bump. It was such a huge let down. The rest of the story was hot, and considering what issues Quinton and Cassia were working through, I'm sure this author could create some better drama. In fact, I know she can, because the other books I've read by her were awesome.

Now to what I loved. BDSM is my kink of choice when it comes to romance/erotica, so I have read my fair share. And Laura Kaye does it very well. It's all safe, consensual, and great care is taken on both sides. I also like how the characters use different aspects of the lifestyle to help them work through issues - in this case, Cassia's phobia after her accident. It was all so well done, which does help redeem this book in my eyes.

Cover Lovin': Definitely hot.

Recommendation: While reading the previous books isn't required or absolutely necessary... you should read them because they are amazing.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE (3.5/5)!! Alas, I had to knock this down some because the storyline fell flat around 80% in. But this author still deserves a read, and I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!

Happy Reading!

About MASTERING HER SENSES (Blasphemy #2, 2/21/17):

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, she’ll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

Review: WICKED WOLF by Nazarea Andrews!

WW_Banner  

Today we are part of the blog tour for WICKED WOLF, the third book in the Wicked Ever After series by Nazarea Andrews! This is an erotic, fairy-tale novella series! Get it now for just .99 cents!

You can sign up for Nazarea's newsletter for exclusive materials and information on the series.

My Review: Charming's book was good. Beast's book was even better. And now Wolf gets his chance in the spotlight.. and it's the best of the three. I am not exaggerating when I say I devoured this book. I had to know how Wolf would get his happy ending, and he so deserved it. 

Once again, I was struck by how much I loved how this author portrayed the friendship between the four men. In fact, I don't think friendship is a strong enough word, the bond the four goes beyond that. While that might have been my favorite part of the previous books, Wolf himself overshadows all that. I really fell for him while reading this. My heart ached for what he was going through. And if the author can get me that invested in a book, they deserve major props. 

Now I will be impatiently waiting for Mal's story!

Cover Lovin': Fits perfectly with the rest of the series.

Recommendation: You'll definitely want to read Wicked Charming and Wicked Beast before this one.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)!! I think Wolf is my favorite of the three. This would have been a five star read for me if not for the switching between past and present. But Wolf's story just smacked me right in the heart, so he deserves all the stars.

Happy Reading!

Review: HOMETOWN COWBOY by Sara Richardson!

HometownCowboy_banner

Today we are part of the blog tour for HOMETOWN COWBOY by Sara Richardson. This is the first book in her brand new series, Rocky Mountain Riders. You can buy it now and pre-order the next book in the series, Comeback Cowboy!

My Review: Sometimes you just need a hot cowboy in your life. And what luck - there is going to be a whole series of hot cowboys! I jumped at the chance to review this book because it just sounded so cute. And I was so not disappointed. I loved reading about Jessa and Lance. When he first shows up at her house? I giggled through that whole scene, it was perfect. 

I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, so I will just say that the drama with Lance's father hit me right in the feels. And then the big climax, when the hero inevitably messes everything up so readers can get their sappy reunion.. I could not be prouder of Jessa for sticking up for herself. Girl power to the max!

Now I just have to wait a million years for the next book.

Cover Lovin': Yeehaw!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge necessary. But be prepared to be desperate for the next book!

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5). This was just so darned cute, I loved it. And as much as I liked this, I know I'm going to love the other brothers' stories just as much!

Happy Reading!

About HOMETOWN COWBOY:

NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY

Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot--will not--fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.

Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father--Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance's dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that's easier said than done . . .

Review: CHASING CASEY by Jane Anthony!

Release Date: January 2016

Buy Links: Amazon

Type: Contemporary Romance, New Adult, Stand Alone

My Review:
This book shocked me a little. Even after reading the description, I think I had a different idea of what the book was about before actually starting it. Which worked for me, because I was that much more unsure about what was going to happen - and therefore that much desperate to keep reading.

This book follows the typical romance formula, while still managing to be original enough that I wasn't sure how it was going to end. And that drama at the end. Whoa, boy. No spoilers, but I was definitely thrown for a loop. Drama to the max, and totally a shock. 

I'm over love triangles for the most part, but I think the author did a great job here of making it just different enough that I wasn't bored with the idea. 

Cover Lovin': Very steamy. Two thumbs up!

Recommendation: No prior knowledge necessary!

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE (3.5/5)!  This was a good read. I didn't fall in love with this book, but it gave me a very entertaining afternoon. So it definitely deserves a read.

About the Book: ~AJ~
Casey Grainger is not only the epitome of the girl next door, she’s the girl of my dreams. The blonde bombshell of a bartender who watches me with sky blue eyes, smiles with the sweetest dimples, and whose laughter is as melodic as chimes.
She stole my heart the way sunlight sneaks up on the day. Then a death in her family took her away from me. Now my heart lives in Texas while my body rots in New Jersey. As if that’s not bad enough, the ranch hand on her family’s farm is her damned ex-fiancĂ©.
Austin still loves her, and he’s made it known. So Casey has a choice to make. It’s either him or me, but I’m far too stubborn to give up the fight.
That’s the one upside to having nothing left -- I have nothing left to lose.

~Casey~
I don’t date musicians -- I don’t date period -- yet I find myself drawn to the dark and broody sound tech, whose wailing drum beats thump in time with the cadence of my heart. Beneath the arrogant grin and cocky one-liners, AJ Morello is a lonely man, burdened by the choices he’s made. But, he’s not the only one with regrets. 
Mine goes by the name of Austin Krehley. 
After seven years away, there’s still a connection. A tiny spark that slowly builds to a burning flame the longer I stay. 
Two completely different men both hold two completely different pieces of my heart, but I can’t have them both. 
A sexy country boy and a sultry rocker -- how’s a girl to choose?


*This story is for mature audiences only. Contains explicit scenes intended for adults 18+

“Lauren Blakely is the QUEEN of sweet, fun, and steamy reads… Her books are utterly addictive.” ~ Angie’s Dreamy Reads

  THE HOT ONE - cover  

EXCERPT:
She turns her head.
And waves.
And smiles.
That smile makes me feel like I can do this. Like I can win her heart again. Mine pounds faster as I near her, and it’s not just because I happen to think she’s the most stunning woman I’ve ever seen, but because of who she is.
I arrive at her side, and she straightens. “Hey.”
“Hey.”
There’s that awkwardness again, and I want no part of it today. Like the bungee jumper I am, I lean in and dust a quick kiss on her lips. At first, she freezes. That won’t fucking do at all. My tongue darts out, flicking her top lip. A soft breath escapes her, and she gives in. Her sweet lips linger on mine, sending a charge down my spine. My brain leapfrogs ahead, and I picture scooping her up in my arms, carrying her to a quiet little patch of trees, and kissing her till she begs me to take her home.
I want that badly—I want her to beg for it because she’s at her happiest when she’s overcome—but I suspect it’s too soon for her.
Not to mention, screwing in Central Park usually results in a public citation. Public fornicators are never as clandestine as they think they are.
I nibble lightly on her bottom lip for a few seconds, drawing out a throaty murmur from her. Then I somehow find the will to separate.
She blinks. Several times. She sways the slightest bit, like her feet barely touch the ground. Good. I want her to be affected.
She furrows her brow. “I’m sorry, but do we kiss now when we see each other in the park?”
“Evidently we do.”
“Weird. Because I didn’t get that memo.”
I rock on my heels. “Want me to take it back?”
“The kiss or the memo?”
“The memo,” I say matter-of-factly, like this is all so obvious. “You can’t take a kiss back.”
“You sure on that, Nichols?”
“I can try to take back the kiss. Want me to, sweet girl?” I use the term of endearment I once called her. She doesn’t blanch, and that’s a damn good sign.
She smirks. “Be my guest.”
I kiss her once more, like I’m reversing the lip lock, doing it all in rewind, pulling away ever so slowly, ever so softly, leaving her dazed once more.
Perfect.
If she can drive me this crazy, make me this hard, send the temperature in my blood to beyond incendiary, the least I can do is return the favor.
Judging from her reaction, I’m doing it right.
I gesture from her to me. “Like that. I think that’s how you take back a kiss.”
Chuckling, she nods to the running path. “Ready for me to kick your ass?”
Every competitive bone in my body snaps to attention. “We’ll see about that,” I say, then I smack her pink nylon covered behind.
Her eyes widen, saying oh-no-you-didn’t.
But there’s a twinkle in those baby browns that says the lady might like spanking.
That’s new, and it’s most interesting.
I pencil in a new item on my mental to-do list. Find out how much she likes spanking. I never spanked her in college—just wasn’t part of the repertoire. But judging from her response now, I’m more determined than ever to find out everything she likes in and out of bed.

A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

Yeah. I'm that guy. But the instant I run into her again I’ve got one goal and one goal only—a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.

Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you've got to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I'm prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

He's the one who got away . . .

The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not . . .? I've tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I'm cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I’m not over him, so what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's changed in the ways that matter?

After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?

Review: ROYALLY MATCHED by Emma Chase!

RM-FB-on-sale-5
My Review: I knew after reading the first book of that this author would not disappoint when Henry got his turn. I laughed, I sniffled, I considered hugging my e-reader but realized that might be uncomfortable for all involved.. basically, I loved this. You know you have a good book when you forget you're reading, that the story isn't actually playing out in front of you, and time just slips away.

Typically, when I read a romance, I find myself either falling for the hero, or I see myself in the heroine. Whichever I go with, there's usually a clear winner - I end up liking one more than the other. But not here, I am in love with Henry and Sarah both. I had to know how their story would end, but I almost didn't finish this book. I didn't want to... I wasn't ready to say goodbye. So if you want a fantastic contemporary romance, look no further. Both of these books have been top notch, and I highly recommend them.

Cover Lovin': Oh my! Very yum.

Recommendation:  You'll want to read book one if you haven't already. Henry's life is vastly changed by the results of the first book.

Final Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)!! I can't say enough how much I loved this. I blushed, I laughed, I fell in love. 

Happy Reading!

    Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Review: WICKED BEAST by Nazarea Andrews

WB_Banner  

WICKED BEAST is the second book in the Wicked Ever After series by Nazarea Andrews! This is an erotic, fairy-tale novella series! Get it now for just .99 cents!

You can sign up for Nazarea's newsletter for exclusive materials and information on the series.

My Review: Let me start by saying I generally am not the biggest fan of Domme/sub relationships. I like men in charge. That said, I really liked this book. Beast was amazing, and seeing his relationship with Beauty was hot, and more than a little moving. This is a novella, so don't expect for things to get too deep and emotional. But it's definitely worth a read.

You'd think, since this isn't normally my thing, that I would like this even less than book one, but nope! I liked this better, for sure. I was so into the story, I was even shaking during the truly emotional scene about halfway through. This book has its flaws, but it's easily overlooked, trust me. Beast is worth it.

Cover Lovin': Simple, elegant, and the series is a cohesive whole.

Recommendation: Reading the first book is recommended since some of Beast's motivations in the beginning are a direct result of the end of Wicked Charming.

Final Rating: FOUR out if FIVE stars (4/5)! Better than book one! Emotional, sexy, and has me begging for more.

Happy Reading!

The chase has never been quite as intoxicating as it is with her, the feisty sub with an innocent streak a mile wide. And for the first time, he wants to keep her, but Scarlet already has a Dom, and Hunter has no intentions of giving her up. Both Wolf and Hunter are in for a surprise when they realize Scarlet doesn’t want one of them. She’s playing to keep them both.
