I had never read Ella Frank before and wasn’t even sure what to think when reading the synopsis.. After reading it, I don’t think the blurb does it justice. This book felt like it was written as an erotic suspense with lots of twists and turns. I was gripped by the story from the beginning and could not put it down. I think it should have been said that this is a student/teacher romance. BUT don’t allow preconceived notions to let that turn you off…. trust me, this isn’t what you’re thinking. This book wasn’t what I was expecting and I couldn’t be happier about it.

“I never knew that I’d risk everything, even my freedom, just to touch someone.”

In the beginning, we meet Addison (Addy) and it’s pretty clear she is in a mental institution. Her doctor “Doc” is trying to get her to talk and she seems to be in some kind of psychosis where she won’t speak. I was really excited that the book just throws you off the cliff and you have to try and figure out what is happening. From the beginning all you know is that something is wrong and you want to know how she got there. The most intriguing part of the beginning of the book is that Addy keeps thinking she’s alone and “he” is gone. The first three chapters of this book set an amazing tone of the story that follows. Addy was a dark and sexual character to get inside. I was captivated by her maturity even though she was young. I loved how she was so bold and not embarrassed by her body or her desires.

“Right hand on the steering wheel, left hand inside your panties, and your eyes, those beautiful fucking eyes – keep them on me the entire time.”

Mr. McKendrick wasn’t at all what I was expecting. When someone says student/teacher romance I immediately think the guy is going to be a sleazy creep. I assume he is preying on an innocent girl or taking advantage of a vulnerability. I can honestly say those thoughts NEVER crossed my mind with him. I felt like from the beginning he was trying to thwart Addy’s advances. He was very clear that she was his student and it wasn’t going to happen. He kept his distance and told her “no” repeatedly. I loved that he wasn’t your typical guy looking for a young piece of ass. He was a man, who’s heart connected to Addy’s. I fell in love with Mr. McKendrick and I am not even the least bit ashamed. He does reveal his first name in the book, but it’s such an intimate scene I’ll let you find that out on your own.

I am not even a little sorry at how much this book turned me on. I think I even said I was going to make my husband tell me “no” over and over again after I finished this book. I have never been so turned on in my life by a man trying to stop a woman’s sexual advances. The tease, the build up, and the sex are 5 of 5 stars. My vagina and I were totally in agreement that this book was a sexual beast.

“I’ll teach you how to come with a man inside you… Not a boy Addison, a man.”

For me, this book was an A. The story was suspenseful and captivating and I couldn’t stop reading. I was wrapped in the mystery of what happened to Addy and why Mr. McKendrick was missing. I didn’t see how this book was going to play out from the beginning, so I loved that it kept me on edge. I read this book in a day and was angry at myself for finishing it so fast. I don’t know about the author’s other books, but this blew me away. If you are looking for book that has a lot of heat, and a bit of a thriller aspect to it, then this is it! Loved it from beginning to end.

Ecstasy Claimed picks up about a week after Ecstasy Unbound ends. Immediately we are thrown back into the world of Guardian’s, realms, and Greek mythology. This book focuses mostly on Gregorie and Alyssa. There are a few side stories we get to see played out and a tease for a new couple at the end. What I was most excited for in this book was to see how Gregorie claimed his mate and what happened with the piece of shit Cyril from book one.

“Your pussy knows who it belongs to. It’s soaking my fingers. Soon all this liquid will be around my dick.”

Alyssa reminded me a lot of a princess who is kept in a tower and sheltered from the world. Although she has a life, she is kept in the dark by her parents about who her mate was and why she wasn’t claimed the day she became of age. I felt sorry for Alyssa in the beginning because it really felt like people underestimated her out of pity. Once I read on and understood why she was protected it made sense, but in the beginning she pulled at my heart. As the book progressed and Alyssa found her confidence, I loved her even more. She ends up being a pretty bad-ass chick and I do love when my heroines have some sass.

“Spread your thighs wide for me. I need your come all over my face and mine covering your beautiful breasts.”

Gregorie… oh brooding Gregorie. When we first meet him in book one he is so quiet and only down to fuck because he physically has to. I was really glad he got his own book because we get a chance to see why he was always so grumpy and what was keeping him from being happy. I loved that he had to go and claim Alyssa immediately after the wedding ceremony between Uri and Alexandra. I felt like in this book we get to see the tender side of him that has been waiting on his mate to mature so he could claim her.

“Use both hands and hold on to the end of the bed. I’m going to give you all my weight as I fuck your ass deep and pin you down hard.”

The sex in this book was off the fucking charts good. I have about 30 sections highlighted and I still didn’t get them all. The dirty talk is out of control and you all know how I like my filthy whispers! Scene after scene they got me off and blew my mind every time. I was impressed that even by the end of the book I wasn’t tired or bored with the sex. A lot of times if there is too much I check out, but this book kept me on edge until the end.

“Open your eyes. I want you to see who owns this pussy.”

This series is one that I love. I have learned with the second book that it’s not something I can casually pick up. This is a meaty story and when I sit down to read it, I need to be focused and involved. I read a lot of books and for the most part they are pretty easy to pick up and put down. When I am reading a book from this series I know that I will get sucked in and taken to another world. This book has so much packed in it was unbelievably hard to go back and try to remember everything. I felt like I got closure on a lot of things that left me hanging in the first book, but I also got some juicy sneaks into the next. I will say that at parts I had a hard time keeping everyone straight because there are so many players in the story now. Although there are a lot of characters to keep up with I am anxiously looking forward to the next book.

This erotic novella is 100 pages of hot sex with a fight for dominance. We are introduced to Camille in the Seen Trilogy and again in Flashes of Me (this can be read as a standalone.) Camille is the new intern at Blaine Technologies and is in love with their CFO, Nathan Lawford. When she finally gets the guts to make the first move in the elevator, she is surprised by how Nathan reacts to her advances.

“Fill me, Nate.” The heel of his hand presses against my clit and I tremble, the contact direct and constant. “I’m so empty.”

Camille is a very different character than I am used to reading. First of all she has green hair, facial piercings, and an overall bad attitude. I didn’t really identify with her, but I fell in love with her right away. What I loved most was that she never changed. She stayed a bit jaded and kind of bitchy the whole time, but she rocked it. I really appreciated that the author never made her apologize for who she was.

“You’ll come when I give you permission to come, Nate.”

Nathan is the complete opposite of Camille and I kind of loved that. He is straight laced, quiet, and doesn’t deviate from his routine. Nathan is the type of guy that needs a woman like Camille to shake him up. He needed her to rip him out of his box and make him see what life can be about. They start off a little unconventionally,l but I don’t know of any other way he would have brought down his walls for her.

The sex in this book is so hot! In the beginning it’s a struggle for dominance, and I wasn’t sure who I wanted to come out on top (did you see what I did there?) There are plenty of detailed scenes in this short novella and I walked away very satisfied. After reading all of the books in this series, I think Nathan and Camille might be my most favorite couple… mostly because they are so opposite.

“My pussy is slick and wet, yearning to be filled with a big hard cock.”

This story is good, even if it was a bit predictable. I felt like what made this story stand out above the others was my connection to the main characters. They were different than
people I have read about before and I enjoyed the change of pace. If you are looking for something short and sexy grab this $0.99 deal while you can. It can be read as a stand alone, but the others are worth it as well.

I picked up this bundle because of a tweet I saw. I went in thinking it was going to be super gushy sweet throughout, but it was kind of drama filled, with some head scratching characters, and a bunch of dirty sex. Shockingly I actually kind of enjoyed myself. Once I started it I couldn’t stop until I was done.

Tess is determined to catch her husband in the act of cheating on her. This isn’t the first time she has caught onto him having an affair, but she knows if she can catch him in the act there is no way he can back track his way out of it. Right before she can scream out his name while he is fucking his mistress on the balcony of a hotel she is grabbed from behind and silenced with a hand by Vincent Whitehorse…. Isn’t that name just fucking hot? I can already tell just by that alone that he is going to have a giant cock. Anyway, Vincent is also there to see if his wife is having an affair, but he doesn’t want his wife to know the game is up.

Vincent drags Tess to the local bar for a little sit down where they proceed to get wasted and of course have crazy mind blowing monkey sex. Vincent ask Tess not to let on she knows about the affair because he needs to tie up some lose ends before he too cuts his wife lose. He doesn’t want her to try and destroy his business and some charities that she is on the boards of just to spite him. Tess agrees to just telling her husband she needs time away so she doesn’t have to be around him any longer. As Vincent tries to get his life in order to free himself he can’t seem to get Tess out of his mind. He even goes to her work every night and makes sure she is getting home ok without her knowing.

Vincent can only fight his attraction for Tess for so long and can’t stand the thought of anyone else wanting his Tess and wants to claim her publicly. While this is sweet and all, I had a few hang-ups that drove me nutty. While Vincent never sleeps with his wife again he does act like he loves her still to her face. Even kissing her and saying dirty things about fucking her pussy later so she thinks she still has him. While I know he hates her because we get his point of view and he even says it makes him want to vomit, I still hated it! Plus, how did this alpha guy EVER put up with his cheating wife’s behavior? This chick was over the top self-centered that I couldn’t see anyone, especially an alpha male, ever liking her. I know the author played it like he only went alpha because of Tess and she brought it out in him, but I still had to scratch my head at that.

While the story has a few things that made me clench my jaw, I enjoyed it for the most part. The heroine was kind of a push over and I really wanted her to grow a backbone. But the sex was dirty, nasty hot, and the drama held my attention well. I’m extremely curious about a few of the side characters. The writing is a little wobbly at points and could use a good cleaning up. It even started to have a little Kristen Ashley feel with the language when the hero went into alpha mode. I’m not sure why I really enjoyed myself so much, but I really did. I saw there is another book about the heroine’s best friend and one of the guys in this story, so I’m sure I’ll probably be reading it next.

Overall Grade: D


AmazonBarnes & NoblesGoodreads
Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant.

While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia. There was nothing disguised about Jake. Including the fact he made a habit of making very bad decisions about who to give his love.

But for Josephine and Jake, there was one person who adored them. One person who knew how to lead them to happiness. And one person who was intent on doing it.

Even if she had to do it as her final wish on this earth.

reviewKristen Ashley’s recent books have been disappointments. Some have put it down to her spark being extinguished by too heavy an editorial hand, others have just been a bit bored by her stories. ‘The Will’ comes to us in a huge wave of excitement. So many people have been saying that this is Ashley back to her best, so, as a huge Ashley fan, I was excited to read it.

Josephine has come back to the small town of Magdalene for her beloved grandmother’s funeral. This is where she sees the local hottie, Jake, and his gaggle of kids. Josephine, being aware of general etiquette, refrains from humping his leg but they meet again at the reading of her grandmother’s will. This is where things get interesting, and Josephine finds herself embroiled in a relationship with the aforementioned hottie, attempting to form relationships with his kids, and reconnecting with what she left behind when she fled all those years ago.

It’s such a lovely and charming opening but the usual Ashley features creep in quickly enough. While I enjoy her books, Ashley has some bad habits and these seem to be even more apparent in this book. First of all, the book is too long. A lot of readers were disappointed by the relatively brief books she released with Grand Central, so I guess she felt free to spread her cluttered, overly-descriptive wings in this self-published book. But it’s long, so long that I felt like I was being held hostage by conversations that resolved nothing and incidents that served only to highlight Josephine’s saintliness. Josephine tends to cast a spell on everyone she meets. Every man she meets falls in love with her. Teenagers do away with centuries of instinctual grumpiness and decide she’s wonderful, despite her preaching about eating their vegetables. Oh, and she’s crazy in bed. She can do no wrong. Which brings me to point number two.

I tend not to mind Mary Sues in romance, because a lot of romance is about wish fulfilment, and readers tend not to want excessively flawed, difficult-to-like heroines. But Josephine was so teeth-grindingly perfect that she became unutterably tedious. And had the most bizarre manner of speaking. I guess Ashley wanted her to come across as cultured and educated, but she spoke like a badly trained Lizzie Bennet from a poorly funded Jane Austen am-dram production. She seemed bewildered by common slang (and slang that has most certainly entered the common lexicon) despite working as a photographer’s assistant for years, travelling the world and meeting various celebrities. Are you really telling us that these people think using “alas” with such frequency is perfectly normal?

And yes, “alas”. If I ever hear that word again, it’ll be too soon. Same with “indeed” and “goodly.” Rather than sounding classy, Josephine just sounded like she had an extremely limited vocabulary. And an editor should have pointed that out, along with all-too-frequent instances of using words in the wrong context (the author was fond of using ‘extortionate’ when she meant ‘very’).

So where does this leave us? Ashley writes very sweet books, and readers tend to appreciate her detailed and committed approach. But for me it was a bridge too far. I’m not sure if this book strayed too far into self-indulgence, or if I’ve tired of Ashley’s style. Her fans may well love it but I just didn’t enjoy it.

As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi’s presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required—especially when dealing with royal etiquette.

Unfortunately for Griffin, he’s stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn’t know a thing about high society—but she sure can kiss.
Well, that's hardly apropos, Griffin. Griffin sounds like that kid in school who always shouted inappropriate and random phrases at inopportune moments. Her lack of polish may sink Griffin, because after all, even his money can’t buy class. Elegance is learned, my friends. Elegance is learned, oh yeah. But through Maylee’s eyes, he’s starting to appreciate the simple things in life—if simple means the most complicated woman he’s ever met. *still lip syncing 'Money Can't Buy You Class'

Maylee is everything Griffin isn’t—and everything he wants—if he can let down his guard and step outside his sheltered world… That's right, Griffin, confident and cool, you know you hold the key. Find your dreams within yourself, and live with dignity

reviewThis is the fourth book in the Billionaire Boys Club series so we all should be familiar enough with the characters by now. This is Griffin’s book. My memory of Griffin from previous books was less about his character and centred more on the enormous stick shoved up his ass, and when we meet him in this book, I find my memory to be pretty accurate.

Griffin’s personal assistant has been struck by illness, just when Griffin has to fly back to his home country to attend his cousin’s wedding. Due to some bad luck and some evil machinations from some meddlesome friends, Griffin finds himself saddled with an unconventional replacement assistant for his trip.

Jessica Clare tends to do simple things very, very well. This is a straightforward odd-couple concept, mixed with fish-out-of-water elements, tied up with some mommy issues. Maylee isn’t the plain and staid assistant Griffin may have wanted, but she’s such a genuine, warm character that I couldn’t help but take her side immediately. I actually resented some of the characters’ actions at the beginning of the book, because I saw them as making Griffin suffer at her expense. She was kind and sweet, and just wanted to do her job well. It was, therefore, an uphill battle to warm to Griffin, because he was so unforgivably rude to her. This, however, leads to a slow-burn friendship between the characters as they feel out each other’s foibles and quirks. But, as with all of Clare’s books, this slow-burn doesn’t come at the expense of hot sex. In fact, the author is such a talent that she can make dry-humping seem like the sexiest thing since God invented rugby players’ thighs.

This was needed after the particularly heavy ‘The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed’. Instead of that drama, we get royalty, chocolate, a priggish (but adorable) dope and a gloriously sweet heroine. A huge treat.
