One wild night leads to heartache…

Tori Glen loves her new job as an image consultant for Thurston-Hughes Inc.
If you block one ear and slur, that name sounds like Thrustin' You. Nice work, Black/Blake. The trouble is, she’s also in love with the three brothers who own it, Oliver, Rory, and Callum. They’re handsome, successful, aristocratic, successful and aristocratic? Rather an oxymoron, I should think. Fnarr fnarr *sips sherry, adjusts opera glasses* and way out of this small-town Texas girl’s league. So she remains a loyal professional—until the night she finds a heartbroken Oliver desperate for someone to love. Tori knows she should resist…but it’s so tempting to give in.

And a desperate plan…

Callum and Rory have denied their desire for Tori, hoping she’ll heal their older brother, who was so brutalized by his late wife’s betrayal. But when Oliver cruelly turns Tori away in the harsh light of day,
#DemBeerGoggles she tenders her resignation. Rory and Callum realize that to save their brother, they must embrace the unconventional sort of family they’ve always wanted—with Tori at its center. And it all starts with seducing her…

That could lead to happily ever after—or murder.

Isolated with the brothers at an elegant English country manor, they begin awakening Tori to the most sensual of pleasure. As opposed to that other type of pleasure - sensory deprivation... But consumed with regret, Oliver won’t be denied the chance to embrace the only woman worth the risk of loving again. What begins as a rivalry veers toward the future they’ve only dared to dream of. But a stranger is watching and waiting for a chance at revenge. Can the brothers come together to embrace the woman they love and defeat a killer?
Now you mention a killer? You gave us all that guff and waited until the very last word to mention a killer?

reviewHow many virgins can there be? There’s been a virgin hostage, a virgin concubine, a virgin secretary, a virgin butcher, a virgin baker and a virgin candlestick maker (…who will light THIS innocent maid’s fire?). Now it’s the time of the mistress, which, as with the virgin concubine, requires some mental gymnastics to wrap one’s head around. Anyway, the mistress in question is Tori, fixer for three brothers, Oliver (Grumpy), Callum (Horny) and the Other One (Non-Descripty). Tori is in love with her bosses and ends up sleeping with one of them, misplacing her hymen in the process. The freshly fucked Grumpy, the president of Bezakistani branch of MRAs, gives her shit about being a gold-digger and a whore and the usual. Tori, aghast, runs out.

This sounds familiar, right? Bosses, an employee, one member of the sex triad has been wounded in his past so he lashes out at the girl…this breakdown is a carbon copy of the previous book in the series, ‘Their Virgin Secretary’. Now we can safely assume that variety isn’t a top priority for anyone buying and reading a billionaire-menage-virgin book but come on!

Grumpy, Horny and Non-Descripty chase Tori and try to get her to marry them. There’s your plot. Grumpy is a bitter bastard, Horny is just a bastard and Non-Descr- zzzzzzzz. Oops. I fell asleep. I love this series. It’s ridiculous and silly. But it’s only enjoyable if it’s interesting or fresh. Fresh doesn’t have to mean original. It just has to be engaging. And this wasn’t.

Oh, and the Arab Spring is referenced obliquely. Apparently the discord in the region means that there’s some instability among the country’s neighbours, but you’ll be relieved to hear Fucktopia wasn’t much affected. It does, however, have hordes of horny refugees at its borders requesting entrance (in more ways than one). Happily, Bezakistani is more concerned with ass than it is with Assad.

What made the previous books so enjoyable seems to have fizzled out. There are only so many virgin-three men permutations, even if you’ve made kidnap and kinda-almost-pretty-much rape legal and romantic (it’s a Bezakistani tradition! You have to respect that!). The heroes were bland and the heroine was blander. There was no bite or humour to it – it was just…blah. God Bless Fucktopia.

‘Comforting Touch’ is part of the ‘Touch’ series, which I absolutely love. No worries though, this one can be read as a standalone. I would still suggest reading them all because they are all smutty goodness with a side of cotton candy. In fact I’ve re-read them a few times over.

Chelsea Dunn is ready to start her life over in San Francisco and is looking forward to joining a new BDSM community. She longs to have a permanent Dom but has never met any that she could fully give herself to. Then Rio Kelly comes back into her life: a man who many years ago changed everything for her, a man who seems to be trying to stay as far away from her as possible.

I went into ‘Comforting Touch’ with a little bit of a chip on my shoulder. I’m not big into second chance romances and that’s what I thought I was getting with this one. I don’t like the idea of the hero ever letting the heroine slip through his fingers but that wasn’t really the case here.

“I never stood a chance against you.”

When Chelsea first met Rio, she was young. I mean, against-the-law young. But the things he said to her sparked a fire in her she had never felt before. Growing up on the streets, she was used to men wanting to use her, and she would do the same if it meant a meal and a place to lay her head, but Rio was different and made her want more. As for Rio, he too was taken aback by the feelings he had when he met Chelsea. She brought something out in him that wanted to make her his, which made him feel dirty because of her age.

“Yes, Master.” I moan as he presses his cock against my pussy.

Now with both of them older and being back in each others lives, the passion really explodes. What I liked most about this story was how everything wrapped back around to the heroine. I loved that I felt like two people had found their soul-mates and these two were always destined to be together. Even in the sex scenes, there is so much love shown through them.

I do want to give a small spoiler because, well, I hate this about books…there is a dead ex. No worries though, he didn’t really love her and was with her when he was trying to live a vanilla lifestyle. There is no crying over a lost love and it’s barely a blip on the radar. I can’t want for the next in the series because I believe we are going to be jumping back into daddy play with that one, with a ménage couple and no one does better daddy play than Cara Dee.

He has these wild eyes—eyes that light something up in me—and he must be twice as big as I am, with strong, warm hands. Hands I try not to imagine everywhere.

He scares me. And thrills me.

But now the deed is done, and I have to face the consequences. He says he just wants to hold me here until the police come, but it’s been hours and I’m still here.

Chained to a pipe in his back room like a prisoner.

The only person I have to talk to is Johann, and I tell him dark, shameful secrets—secrets that involve the metal around my wrist and him standing over me. But I can’t stop. I need him to know everything. I need him.

Johann has his own secrets—ones he wants to tell me too. And more than anything, I want to listen. And maybe, before he sends me away, he’ll punish me.

Just a little.

sheriffSubmission didn’t come easily to Miranda LaVoie, least of all to a man like Mace Kennedy, who everyone in town but her seemed to be chasing.
But she didn’t need a man – didn’t need a dom, especially, she was quite sure. Her streak of independence was a mile wide, thanks to someone in her past that she had been stupid enough to trust with a knowledge of what it was she craved between the sheets.

Mace had known he’d wanted Miranda from the moment he’d seen her – as she was gracefully gliding away from him, which she seemed to do a lot of. But he could be a patient man when the goal was worthy enough, and his head, his heart, and his loins deemed that having her in his arms, beneath him, or over his lap was more than worth any expenditure of time or effort as he fought to banish the shadows of fear he saw in those beautiful eyes.

sheriffI’m known for being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when he can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.

But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. I question my sanity on a daily basis because of that woman. Sometimes, she makes me want to keep her to myself, and other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.

Yet, I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up at her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one, at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life—it’s her who stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins, and it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I’ll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.

What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine will become history.

Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins' ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player bass player? Um...rock on, I guess? for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? That's what cake does for me. Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there.
Shit, really? Because if that's true, I don't want to answer the door now after abandoning that baby there 18 years ago...I was kinda hoping that whole thing would stay there Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible...but will it lead to a connection of the heart? gross.

I have a soft-spot for this series. While none of the books that followed ‘Lick’ reached its heady heights, Scott writes very readable books (quite a handy attribute for a book, I daresay). ‘Deep’ concerns itself with Lizzy, Anne’s sister. You remember Anne, don’t you? She married Mal, the drummer? Yeah, her. Well, her sister. Turns out she’s knocked up. And the knocker upper is none other than Ben, Stage Dive’s bassist and obligatory non-descript band member. Ben and Lizzy had a fling way back when (well, three months ago) but they had to keep it on the QT because Ben is a huge pussy and was scared of what Mal would say when he heard about it. And there’s my first problem. Family objections just don’t fly with me. Not only that, but as well as being a pussy, Ben showed himself to be more changeable and temperamental than the Pacific Ring of Fire on her period. Does he want Lizzy? Meh. Does he want anyone else to have Lizzy? NO! Does he want a baby? Meh. Does he want Lizzy to bring her baby bump anywhere that isn’t on tour with him? NO! And Lizzy knows this is happening. She recognises it and acknowledges it, but keeps letting herself be dickmatized by Ben (stay away from the dick, Lizzy! That’s how we wound up here in the first place!).

It’s an enjoyable book, of course, but Ben was immensely unlikable and I was annoyed at Lizzy for buying his mood swing bitch-assness time after time. However, as it’s a wrap-up book, we got lots of interjections from other members of the band and their better halves (including Mal who, of course, stole every scene because he’s hilarious). If you haven’t read the other books in the series, you shouldn’t start with this one. But if you’ve read and enjoyed the other books, it’s worth reading this to see the series off.

AmazonBarnes & NoblesKoboGoodreads

‘Lost’ is a new romantic suspense series by Cynthia Eden, with each book being a standalone featuring a new couple. I’m a pretty big fan of Eden’s. I feel she does outstanding romantic suspense and the first book in her ‘Lost’ series, ‘Broken’, might be one of her best yet.

“I need your help,” Eve told him, and she knew it sounded like she was begging – she was. “Because what’s missing … my life is missing. I’m missing.”

Let me start by saying the prologue is intense. We meet our heroine, Eve Gray, being tortured at the hands of a serial killer. She gets away, and then the story starts up six months later. Eve has no idea who she is. All she knows is she barely escaped death and no one seems to be looking for her. She is alone, with no identity. One day she sees a photo of a missing woman in the paper who looks just like her.

When your life splinters apart… who will be there to pick up the pieces?

Gabe Spencer is an ex-SEAL. He started Lost when his sister went missing. He may not have found her alive but he did find her. It’s what he and his team are best at – finding the missing and lost. When Eve walks into his office, he finds himself drawn to her in a way he has never felt before. Can he help her find herself?

Gabe never meant to want Eve so badly, he never meant to need her so much… but now, he never wants to let her go…

This is an edge-of-your-seat read. Very early on Gabe and Eve know they want each other. Gage let’s Eve know that if he takes her to bed she will be his. He won’t be able to let her go. I liked that the romance was so solid. It gave me something to hang on to while the author threw me into a story that had me biting my nails and looking under my bed.

I felt like my mind was constantly going. Because Eve can’t remember, it makes it so much more interesting to be in her head. You try and piece things together with her. You’re getting glimpses of things that happened, trying to slip them together, unsure if they totally fit in those places. It was fun, it was intense, and I loved how the author played these things out for me. It was almost like I was playing Clue. I was enthralled.

Not only that but all of the Lost team unit really had major depth to them. Everyone has a story, everyone is the best at what they do, and everyone must have a freaking book because I need it. Bravo Eden, not only did you give me a great romance and a story that engaged me, you also gave me a story that often times made me feel like I was actually a part of the Lost team.

I picked this one up because it was a little different than most – a hero who is a paid killer and a heroine who’s a CEO and the face of a multi-billion dollar cosmetic empire. I was right the story was different and it hooked me in the first chapter.

“Either fuck me now, or leave.”

Amelia Wentworth has a bucket list. It seems like a perfect time to start crossing things off the list, being as someone is trying to kill her. Hiding out in a remote town in a fixer-up house, she starts checking things off the list. One of the items just happens to be sex with a stranger. Little does she know that said stranger, the one giving her the best sex of her life is actually the hitman sent to take her out.

Cruz Barcelona is the best at what he does. While he might make a living taking lives, he only kills those who deserve to die. But something feels off with his newest hit. Everything tells that she is a terrible person and that the world would be better place without her, but his gut is telling him something else. And then when he finally comes face to face with her, he can’t seem to keep his hands off her.

The plot was interesting. In fact, I couldn’t put the book down until the end. The mystery of why someone wanted Amelia dead, and if she really did some of the things Cruz found out about her, keeps you really engaged with the story. Not only that, but Cruz was an intriguing point of view to be in when the narration switched to him. He could be a little hard around the edges at times but I liked him.

He drew a deep breath, then closed his mouth over hers as he pounded his shaft into her. She felt his hands at her neck but couldn’t think of anything but his cock filling her, exploding into her as she came again.

What really made me like this one though was the sex. It’s raw, it’s dirty, and it’s downright hot. Did I mention? No condoms! Yeah, it was pretty awesome. I think the only downfall for me was I wanted an epilogue. You do get your happy ever after and all the sweetness of a romance ending, but I wanted to see how these two would be down the road. That being said, Cherry Adair is a new author to me and I look forward to what she does next.
