She’s everything he wants…

For years, Kyle Morgan has hidden his true feelings from the gorgeous girl next door that he grew up loving and protecting. But when she shows up at his apartment in the middle of the night, desperately needing comfort and support, his iron will begins to waver…

…and the only thing he can’t bear to lose.

Kyle was always the big brother Cecelia Anton never had, but suddenly her goofy best friend has become a sexy man she can’t keep her thoughts—or hands—off of. As their deep connection melts into uncontrollable desire, Ceci is willing to put it all on the line for a shot at true love. Only Kyle is keeping a terrible secret about Ceci’s past that could destroy not only their lifelong friendship but their happily-ever-after…

reviewThat sounds nice doesn’t it? It sounds nice and gentle and quiet and slightly anonymous but simultaneously likable. Well, it is! Kyle (beta to the max, alpha fans) has been in love with Ceci his entire life but he’s keeping a terrible secret (he knows about her past and she has a spot of retrograde amnesia that ensures her early childhood is a black pit o’ nothing). Ceci’s late granny (she’s dead – it isn’t like she constantly, like, showed up late to stuff) made Kyle promise to never tell her what happened, but as Ceci keeps on having violent nightmares, it’s fairly clear what’s she’s forgotten. Add on to this the fact that Ceci’s only got herself knocked up by her no-good boyfriend, who promptly freaks out and disappears at this news. Ceci has no other option but to turn to her BFF and her only family, Kyle. Kyle is basically friendzone made flesh and he offers Ceci a shoulder to cry on (and an erection to politely ignore). While all this shoulder crying and erection ignoring is going on, Ceci becomes more and more convinced that Kyle knows more about her past that he lets on. And Friendzone Kyle’s heart is hurt, his soul is achey and his penis is erect.

And that’s the book. It’s a solid example of the usual American small-town contemporary romance. There’s the cop hero, the pretty heroine, the big, happy family and the dreadful dark secret. It doesn’t really have huge moments of tension or intrigue and while I would’ve liked for Kyle to get a bit more assertive, he can’t do that because of his guilt at lying to Ceci. I’m not sure if the majestically filthy readers of this blog would necessarily go for this tameness and PG-level romance but I somewhat enjoyed it.

Putting a woman on her knees before me is what really makes my cock hard. I fuck with dominant force and absolute control. I demand complete surrender from my conquests.

Savage man, loner, warrior… I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation.

Now I’ve been discovered. Forced to return to a world that I have forgotten about and to a culture that is only vaguely familiar to my senses.

Dr. Moira Reed is an anthropologist who has been hired to help me transition back into modern society. It’s her job to smooth away my rough edges… to teach me how to navigate properly through this new life of mine. She wants to tame me.

She’ll never win.

I am wild, free and raw, and the only thing I want from the beautiful Moira Reed is to fuck her into submission.

She wants it, I am certain.

I will give it to her soon.

Yes, very soon, I will become the teacher and she will become my student. And when I am finished showing her body pleasure like no other, she’ll know what it feels like to be claimed by an uncivilized man.

reviewThis sounds like a strange book, doesn’t it? And it kind of is, I’m not gonna lie. Zach, the son of American missionaries was raised in an Amazonian tribe cut off from modernity. Anthropologist Moira decamps to Brazil, as a favour to Zach’s godfather, to fetch Zach and bring him back. This doesn’t go down well with Zach because he quite likes hunting anacondas and throwing spears and almost raping tribeswomen. Yes, there are quite a few ‘problematic’ details in this book, but let’s get the story out of the way. Zach resents Moira for taking him away from his home and bringing him to an unfamiliar and noisy place. His resentment is compounded when he realises he wants to make sexy love to Moira, whom he blames entirely for this upheaval, but Moira (understandably) sees the ickyness in fucking her vulnerable charge. Happily, she soon gets over that and she begins to school young Zach in the art of modern sexing.

So, let’s talk about that title.. I don’t know who came up with that but it’s bad. Really bad. Am I being over-sensitive with this? Zach isn’t uncivilised – he can hunt, he cares for his adopted family and his tribe, he respects his tribe’s traditions and wishes to protect them. Okay, so the ‘mating’ rituals of the tribe are fucked up and we don’t get anywhere near the condemnation I would’ve liked, but calling him uncivilised is so, well, colonialist. Is it ironic? I’d get it if it were ironic but I don’t think it is. And the book is actually sensitive to this ‘civility’ question. The reader understands his frustration at these arbitrary rules, like using eating utensils and wearing clothes and maintaining a certain coyness about sex. And Zach himself uses ‘uncivilised’ in a playful, sweet way, but having it as the title didn’t really sit well with me.

Other than that, I enjoyed this book. The sex was really hot, Moira was kind and understanding (way more understanding than I would have been), and Zach has enough innate decency to be a sympathetic character. The godfather angle could have been much more explosive, but there’s more than enough to be getting on with here. Very enjoyable.

I love two things-books and bad boys. I’m trying to kick the bad boy habit and hold on to the loving books one. When I take the new librarian position in Fortune, I immediately say yes when the Chief of Police asks me out and deliberately turn my back on the bad motorcycle riding boys that litter the Fortune landscape. After all, my bad boy yen was kick started by the frequent absences of my nomad father. But no one turns down a man like Judge, the president of the Death Lords MC, not even a girl trying to be good.

I fucking wish I was bi-polar. Then one of my alter egos could have a better libido.

Instead, I’m given the personal assistant from hell.

The only thing worse than being a personal assistant is being one for your high school nemesis.

But if this is the only way I can escape the family business, so be it.

At a friend’s lavish wedding, Harley McLain and her twin sister, Charity, meet sexy stock-car driver Cooper Brickman. The more reserved Harley is immediately smitten—until he hits on her twin. He sounds like a keeper, Harley. Never let go of this one. But Harley has had enough of being the “nice” girl, and after trading dresses with Charity, she seduces Cooper for a night of wild sex. Harley has never seen any tv show with featuring identical twins ever.

What was supposed to be a one-night fling gets complicated when Cooper needs a nanny to look after his kid sister—and is convinced sweet, dependable Harley would be perfect for the job. What he doesn't know is that she's actually the TURBO-SLUT he BANGED. Everyone knows BANGING TURBO-SLUTS can't be dependable. They've got their hungry vaginas to think about. She can’t resist the money—or Cooper’s hot bod. But when her deception is revealed, will it destroy her dependable image—or will he finally realize how sexy sweet can be?

reviewThis was the third book in my dip into the dependable, sex-deprived world of contemporary and happily, it was my favourite. This is the eighth book in the Fast Track series but it can definitely be read and enjoyed as a standalone. Here we have Cooper Brickman (he’s tough and hard, like a brick man, if you will). As you can imagine, his two main interests are the left boob and the right boob. Although he is partial to Ms L. Abia and her friend Mike Litoris also (his nickname is the almost Tudor-era-esque Cunny King). He meets nanny Harley at a wedding and immediately starts rambling drunkenly about his troublesome teenage sister. Harley is disappointed because she’s fancied him for, like, ever and he basically tells her he reminds her of one of those bosom-y women whose vagina is like one of those caves in Indiana Jones with the big cobwebs that look like blankets. Harley’s twin sister, Charity, is more his style. She and Harley are identical, but while Harley wears her heart on her sleeve, Charity wears her boobs on hers. This causes Charity issues too. She’s seen as the flighty good-time girl to Harley’s dependable Indiana Jones vagina, especially since she’s in lurve with the boring-ass Jeff who’s kind of mean to her. So, in the grand tradition of Tia and Tamera and every single identical twin ever (well, on tv anyway), they switch roles. Harley dons Charity’s Boob Tube of Slutitude and Charity tries on Harley’s Cobweb of Dry Spells.

Unsurprisingly the Cunny King falls for this (well, he’s not known as the New York Times Crossword King, is he?) and soundly fucks Harley’s cobwebs back to the Temple of Doom from whence they came. But, after a series of unfortunate events, Harley now works as a nanny for Cooper’s sister and has to pretend she never slept with him. What could possibly happen?!

I love this shit – identity theft, vaginas, bosoms, cunny kings… I’m on board. Cooper was a major bimbo but I liked him. And once you get over the kind of rapey aspect of the identity switch, it grows into a sweet and innocent love story. I was disappointed that Charity didn’t get her own story, though. We hear a lot about innocent, staid heroines bedding the bad boy but I really loved Charity’s vamp and how she wanted to bed the boring Jeff. I thought her efforts to overcome her ‘reputation’ were worth more than the side-plot they were given and had the potential for a really sweet love story. But, quibbles aside, this was a fun, contemporary romp. That’s right, ROMP.

Nate has developed quite a playboy reputation around campus. It's not that he doesn't respect or trust women; *sideways face emoji* he doesn't trust himself. The men in Nate’s family are prone to abusive behavior—a dirty secret that Nate’s been running from his entire life—so Nate doesn't do relationships. But he can’t help himself around one girl… He can't help himself from beating her up? Or having a relationship.

Jessie is strong, independent, and works at a tattoo parlor. Nate can’t resist getting close to her, even if it’s strictly a friendship. But it doesn't take long for Nate to admit that what he wants with Jessie is more than just friendly.

With Jessie, he can be himself and explore what he’s always felt was a terrifying darkness inside him. Even when Nate begins to crave her in a way that both shocks and horrifies him, Jessie still wants to know every part of him. Testing their boundaries together will take a trust that could render them inseparable… or tear them apart.

reviewI read the first book in this series, but it signalled a slowdown in my consumption of NA books. I’m just too damn old for this shit. But I did like the premise of this book. Rather than our usual NA fare of good girl and bad boy, we have good boy from a fucked-up home and a fuck-em-and-chuck-em MO, and a ‘bad’ girl with a solid and loving home life. Readers met Jessie and Nate in previous books, but my first impressions weren’t great. Jessie seemed nice. Nate seemed nice. They seemed on track for a nice NA relationship. And, as the old adage goes, ‘nice is a four-letter word’. But remember Nate’s shitty home life? And his revolving door of lovely ladies? Well, they’re connected. Nate has ‘urges’ that he immediately links to his father’s abusive nature. When he gets the urge to spank his bedmate, or to tie her up, he equates it with his father’s beatings. When these urges grow stronger around Jessie, he enters full self-hatred mode but he can’t seem to stop himself.

This is where the book breaks out from the NA stable. The sex is SO hot. Nate’s brand of kink is pretty tame – he likes spanking and mild bondage, but he’s also incredibly sweet and kind to Jessie. It’s pretty shaky ground, making a connection between domestic abuse and kink, but Lee manages it well. Jessie is unequivocal in her enjoyment of the sex, and Nate never, ever slaps her in anger or frustration. The difference between his parents’ relationship and his burgeoning relationship with Jessie is stark, and we see that Nate is a caring, kind and thoughtful person, with a sideline in sex mastery.

So, if NA turns you off with its slightly sanitised sex, but you still love the hand-wringing drama, read this. That Lee woman is filthy.
