Racing against time, NSA Agent Joaquin Muñoz is searching for a little girl who vanished twenty years ago with a dangerous secret. What's the dangerous secret? She knows where her nose is? Those grown ups didn't have it after all! Since Bailey Benson fits the profile, Joaquin abducts the beauty huh? and whisks her to the safety of Club Dominion HUH? —before anyone can silence her for good.

At first, Bailey is terrified,
I WONDER FUCKING WHY but when her captor demands information about her past, she’s stunned. 'Oh phew!' she says. 'I thought he was just going to brutally rape and kill me!' Are her horrific visions actually distant memories that imperil all she holds dear? Confined with Joaquin in a place that echoes with moans and breathes passion, ...awkward... he proves himself a fierce protector, as well as a sensual Master who’s slowly crawling deeper in her head…and heart. But giving in to him might be the most delicious danger of all.

Because Bailey soon learns that her past isn’t the only mystery. Joaquin has a secret of his own—a burning vengeance in his soul. The exposed truth leaves her vulnerable and wondering how much about the man she loves is a lie, how much more is at risk than her heart. And if she can trust him to protect her long enough to learn the truth.

reviewThis series has dropped off for me for the past few books, which is pretty understandable. There are only so many ways you can make BDSM-themed suspense new and exciting, especially if, as in this case, it’s more suspense than BDSM. Let’s get the basics out of the way. Joaquin is Kata’s brother – Kata who drunkenly married Hunter in Vegas and then Hunter’s dad and Kata’s mom got married so now Kata and Hunter are stepsiblings which no one really talks about. Anyway, Joaquin’s buddy got killed so he’s now on a one-man mission to save the world. He starts with the daughter of the BDSM-based erotica version of Josef Mengele. Some baddies are after her because that’s what happens to daughters of scientists that work for baddies. So as logic would dictate, Joaquin kidnaps her and bundles her away to the local BDSM club. Because… oh, I don’t know. Apparently this is a sexy Fort Knox slash Guantanamo Bay. Only instead of orange jumpsuits, the inmates wear their birthday suits.

This was without doubt the worst book in this series. It was 90% Josef Mengele bullshit and 10% sexy time. And even the sexy time was boring. So much time and energy was expended on the scientist/baddie plot and it just wasn’t interesting. The chemistry between Joaquin and Bailey was negligible and the whole thing was just kind of a mess. The characters from the other books in the series also made an appearance (there was one super hot scene where they all had a low-key orgy after a surprise birthday party – not as exciting as it sounds) and there’s a subplot about Joaquin being a shitty brother/son. I found it hard to care.

Five minutes until the interview begins.

Fresh on the heels of her college graduation, Cameron Heart has landed an interview at a prestigious architecture firm.

Four minutes until the interview.

She knows she's only there because the owner, Grayson Cole, is her older sister's friend.

Three minutes.

For the last seven years, Grayson has been the most intimidating man Cammie has ever had the pleasure, or displeasure, of being around.

Two Minutes.

But the job opportunity is too good to pass up. So, Cammie will have to ignore the fact that Grayson is handsome enough to have his own national holiday.
Is that all it takes to get a national holiday? I wonder what handsome stud World Tuberculosis Day is in honour of. Or International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation (February 6, fact fans!)

This countdown is taking forevveeeerrr.

After all, she shouldn't feel that way about her new boss. And, he will be her new boss.


"I'm not intimidated by you," I said with a confident smile.
"Perhaps we should fix that, Ms. Heart. Close the door."

reviewOh dear. I was so looking forward to this book. Grayson and Cammie’s relationship interested me much more than the protagonists’ in ‘The Duet‘, the first book of this series. Grayson was Cammie’s big sister’s friend, but he always acted shifty around Cammie. And Cammie acted shifty around him. “Gadzooks,” sez I. “Tis a forbidden romance!” So from there I was pumped to get to read because I’m a crack whore for forbidden romances. Until I started reading ‘The Design’, that is. Grayson is a big-shot architect (lol, like there are any architects around these days #topical) and Cammie has been offered a position at his firm. ‘Hooray,’ says Cammie. ‘I can now save money to go to Paris’ (she has a wide-on for the architecture of the Eiffel Tower, apparently). But when she starts working there, Grayson warns her that he can’t act on his feelings for her because he’s her boss. So naturally Cammie is all, ‘Buh? Feelings? For me?’

And so begins the world’s least discreet seduction attempt. Cammie wanders around sexily, eats lunch sexily, goes to the loo sexily…all to sexily tease Grayson, who brings his piece into his office at lunchtime for some afternoon delight to reciprocally tease Cammie. That’s enough to put anyone off, right? And Grayson’s blah-ness didn’t end there. He’s boring and dickish and weak, and plays right into Cammie’s hands as she exercises the tact of a six-year old with ADD.

This is one of those books where you just think that the hero and heroine deserve each other. You kind of wish they’d go and live on a desert island somewhere, where they can live out their bitter-tasting romance and not bother any other civilians. I may be over-reacting. No, actually I KNOW I’m over-reacting but this book had so much potential. Even so, throw in a psycho jealous roommate (really? We’re doing this?), a prick co-worker and a subplot involving Grayson’s mother that doesn’t go anywhere and watch the book sabotage itself. And this is before I mention Grayson’s behind-the-scenes shenanigans, which are genuinely worrying and upsetting.

RS Grey is a fine writer but this is a book I just didn’t get. There was no chemistry, the hero didn’t deserve the (high-handed but well-meaning) heroine and too many loose-ends were left hanging.

sheriffSound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it’s the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?

I’ve always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn’t have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn’t a single night that I didn’t hear her voice.

You see, meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one.

They both happened anyway.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.
Fighting for my career.
Fighting the impending silence.
Fighting for her.

Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.

I think that’s the sound I’ll miss the most.

sheriffHe could have it all… but all he wants is her.

During his soaring career as the lead singer of indie-rock band Ink & Iron, Cole Kennrick has been through it all: sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Overindulging until he lost what mattered most.

Now he’s pulled his life together and left his addictions behind, except for one: his ex-wife, Janie. If only he can convince her their love was—still is—the real thing.

In the seven years since their divorce, Janie has kept tabs on the only man she’s ever truly loved. The one she had to leave in order to save herself. Still, dark and often kinky desires they explored together linger in her dreams and fantasies.

Janie has seen up close and way-too-personal that rock stars are bad, bad medicine. But when Cole shows up at her yoga studio, clean and sober, his leather-and-motorcycles scent teasing her senses, it’s way too tempting to slip right back into the one place she swore she’d never risk again—his arms.

This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.

Warning: One smokin’ hot tattooed rock star, five sexy-as-hell motorcycles, and a little spanking—because leather and skin just naturally go together.

Overall Grade: B+

AmazonBarnes & NoblesKoboGoodreads

Beneath this Mask starts off with a very engaging intro. We meet a young woman—a very well known socialite—who has to testify in her father’s trial for the millions of dollars he has stolen from innocent people. The perfect little world that she thought she had crumbled down around her over things she had no power to control. She knew that if she ever wanted to live a somewhat normal life, she had to run and start over… so that’s what she did.

“The tattoos had become more than a camouflage to hide the girl I’d once been; they were a declaration that I was never going back..I could never again fit into the life I’d previously led.”

Charlotte Agoston, aka Charlie, our heroine, really re-invents herself. She moves to New Orleans, gets a fake ID, and merrily survives. She has two jobs to pay her bills but doesn’t really let herself get too close to anyone, knowing that one day she might have to up and leave at a moment notice if someone was to find her. She dyes her hair tons of colors and tattoos herself up so that she looks nothing like her former self; she now wears somewhat of a mask. She is content in this for the most part. At times, Charlie is lonely and she fills some of her needs with the owner of the tattoo parlor she works for, but that’s only to keep the loneliness at bay. Their relationship is strictly friends with benefits, and it works well for them. Then, one day, in walks Simon Duchesne and turns Charlie’s world on its side.

“I want to see you again. Just dinner. Or drinks. Your choice.”
“I think you should go. You’re losing your friends.”
“I’ll catch up. Just give me your number. Please, Charlie.”

Simon is a good old boy, which makes him easy to adore. He is pretty damn perfect. But he is exactly the type of man Charlie needs to stay away from. Simon’s family is a prominent family in New Orleans and he is set to take political office in his father’s footsteps. He is a former Navy fighter pilot who everyone seems to love. People know who Simon is and are always talking about whom he is with or might be dating. Charlie can’t be in that type of spotlight, but Simon just won’t let her get away from him.

“If I fuck you tonight, are you going to throw me out on my ass as soon as we’re done and never call me again?” I bit my lip. Damn. He should be a freaking interrogator instead of a politician. But I wasn’t going to lie to him. At least not about this. “Probably.” His face fell and he released my chin and backed away. “Then, no.”

This is a cat-and-mouse kind of love story. I always favor the hero chasing the heroine, so it’s safe to say I really enjoyed watching Simon chase Charlie. Plus, it’s a sweet, fun chase and not one that grew tiring. Simon knew that Charlie was something different. Although he never seemed like the man-whore type, he never before had the urge to keep a woman either… until her. There was just something different about Charlie, and he wouldn’t just give her what she wanted, which was merely a quick fling. He wanted it all from her. There was even one part in the story where Charlie tells Simon, “I just want to fuck you,” and he gets up—leaving her naked—telling her to call him when he wants something more. I almost died. I loved that Simon was this way.

“I was naive to think I could escape my past. Losing Simon would be my penance, and when that happened, memories like this would be all I had left.”

As the story unfolds so does Charlie’s past. We get to watch them fight through issues of their past to try to be better people for each other. Anyone who likes their heroes protective and extra sweet and their heroines feisty and bold in their sexual desires will eat this up. The only downfall I saw in this story was there was no white knight saving the day. It was all so real-ish. I like a little fairytale-ness to my stories, and I felt like this one missed that at the end. But I think the author was going for the strong woman who did it all on her own, which is great and we still get a happily ever after. I just felt that a little something was missing at the end.

“I’m gonna give you the fuckin world, baby”

This read was a little outside the box for me. I’m not normally into New Adult as I tend to favor stories about billionaires who have money to throw around or are a little bit set up in life. It’s easy and fluffy, but I gave this one a go because it was recommended to me. I was told it housed an obsessed, sweet hero, and oh, were they right.

Emily McCarthy has had more than a rough life. It’s sad, lonely, and truly heartbreaking at times. Yet she is a survivor. She works hard to make a life for herself but keeps her head down to not draw attention. She’s skittish, and with great reason. She knows she risks her stepfather finding her, so it’s best just to blend in. Then Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell sees her one day. He knows with one look she is like no one else, and he wants her.

O’Connell and I had a little bit of a rough start. He’s young and acts accordingly. He likes amateur fighting, works construction, gets drunk every weekend and finds easy pussy. Then one day he catches sight of Emily and things start to shift for him. The first few bites of O’Connell didn’t sit well in my stomach, and I believe part of this is because the author does a wonderful job of making you love Emily. As the reader, whenever I thought something might hurt her, I of course went on guard and was quick to judge. So that you don’t go off the handle like I did, I want to give you a tiny little spoiler: Emily goes to a party that the kids at her college are throwing and she sees O’Connell there. Emily is talking to a guy who she has met a few times but there is nothing between them. When O’Connell sees this he lets another girl climb onto his lap and picks her up and he carries her out of the room. Now, O’Connell and Emily are not even together, but this made me MAD. Like I wanted to quit the book…But five minutes later, O’Connell is back to say sorry and that he didn’t do anything with her, that he was just jealous.

“I’m fucked-up possessive over you. I know that, and I’m afraid that you’ll get sick of all the bullshit that comes with me.”

I think I forgot how young he was for a second because his behavior at that point was childish. After this point, O’Connell totally flips the script. At first, he thought he wasn’t worthy of Emily because of his own rough, neglected childhood, which I got and understood. Yet when he decides he’ll do whatever it takes to have Emily, it’s truly heartwarming: We get this hero who is young and just skating by in life, but then he meets this girl and decides not only that he wants her, even with all her issues, but that he is going to do everything in his power to make himself better and be a man who can give her everything she could ever want. It is extremely sweet to watch him do these things. We get to watch him transform into a man because he will stop at nothing for her. Together they grow and fight through the issues of their pasts. O’Connell turns into one of the sweetest heroes and will have you eating out of his hand by the end of the book.

This made for an incredible story. The side characters where wonderful, and the book opens up to so many possibilities for things to come. I loved all the different interactions we got with all the friends; it really makes you want more from this world. I had lots of laugh-out-loud moments, followed by lots of getting the feels from other moments. I’m highly impressed that this is a first book from the author, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.

Genres: Paranormal/ Sci-fi, Sexy Romance
Pages: 174

Overall Grade: B

AmazonBarnes & NoblesKoboGoodreads

The Omega’s Heart is the fourth book in the Wilde Creek series and can be read as a standalone. I have enjoyed them all so far so, although you can read it without the others, if you’re a shifter junkie like me you should give them all a go.

Jeremiah Kincaid can’t fully shift even though he’s a full-blooded wolf. He is forced into the role of an Omega for his pact. His pack is never mean to him, but you can tell he is treated differently. He is made to run errands and do all kinds of odds and ends around the pack. While the things he does are important, he never feels appreciated and it nicked at my heart for him.

Honey Williams is on the run. She knows her alpha father has plans for her and she is terrified to find out what those plans might be. When she high-tails it out of town, she runs right into Jeremiah’s pack and into him. Butler’s spin on mates is fated-mates. When you meet your mate you know it. It’s instant and all consuming. Jeremiah tries to push Honey away, thinking he is unworthy because he can’t fully shift, but this lasts maybe ten seconds… I’m not joking; it lasted ten seconds tops. Once she tells him she could care less, he has his fangs and cock inside her minutes later. The thing about shifters is that, when their mates are in danger, nothing will stop them from protecting their mates; and, once he mated with Honey, some animal instincts Jeremiah never knew he had came out. These instincts are powerful and I loved them.

“You’re the part of my heart I didn’t know was missing. I can’t imagine my life without you in it.”

Jeremiah and Honey are both very easy characters to love. Never once was I frustrated with or angry at them. What was so wonderful about this story was, while it was a story about two people falling in love, it was more about two people overcoming inner pains together and having each other to do that with.

It’s sweet, light, and packs a nice punch of smut. My only problem with the story is I did grow a little bored at the beginning, but the slow pace was necessary for the author to set up the characters for us. Once they meet, its all eventful sailing. We even get a taste of the next book at the end of this one, and I’m super excited to get my hands on it.
