~Synopsis~

When Ward Johannsen’s little girl Ava shifted into a werewolf, she was taken into custody by the feds and shipped off to the nearest pack, all ties between father and daughter severed. Ward burned every bridge he had discovering her location, and then almost froze to death in the Colorado mountains tracking her new pack down. And that’s just the beginning of his struggle.
Henry Dormer is an alpha werewolf and an elite black ops soldier who failed his last mission. He returns home, hoping for some time to recuperate and help settle the pack’s newest member, a little pup named Ava who can’t shift back to her human form. Instead he meets Ward, who refuses to leave his daughter without a fight. The two men are as different as night and day, but their respect for each other strikes a spark of mutual interest that quickly grows into a flame. They might find something special together—love, passion, and even a family—if they can survive trigger-happy pack guardians, violent werewolf politics, and meddling government agencies that are just as likely to get their alpha soldiers killed as bring them home safely.

So, Where’s All The Sex?

My gosh, I almost feel guilty having a blog post on a site called Dirty Books Obsession that contains all of one complete sex scene in it. There are more intimate scenes, there are some close calls, but there’s only one fully-realized sex scene. Yeah. I know. What the hell?

I like to write sex. I really like to read it, and given my personal preferences, shouldn’t I be getting more of that action into my own books? The answer is an absolute, unequivocal maybe. It just depends on the book, for me. Some authors are truly reliable when it comes to what you’re getting with their stories—all sweet, or all sex, all the time. I’m…not.

For me, it really all depends on the characters and their personal situations. No, hear me out, this isn’t a bunch of BS—character is everything for me when it comes to sex. Character and circumstance. If the hottest guy in the world is about to get his head chopped off, and a page later he’s passionately getting it on with his would-be executioner? You better explain that with some serious magic or a huge knock to the head, because I’m not going to buy it otherwise and will be reluctant to even if you do give me a super explanation. Worse, I’m not going to want to read it, because if it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, my mind tends to rebel.

I’ve written an incubus who had to have sex all the time in order to stay healthy. Fun was had by all. I’ve written a shy virgin who only had time to lose said virginity in one on-the-page sex scene before I did awful things to him. Fair enough. In Off The Beaten Path, there are neither incubi or virgins, but there is a worried father desperate to save his little girl and an alpha werewolf with PTSD who has a lot more going on inside than his libido. Frankly, I’m happy I got them off together period, what with all the extra crap I threw their way.

I hope you find the heat level of Off The Beaten Path works for the story. I feel like it does, and if in a revisit someday I have them happy and healthy and fucking like bunnies? Well, more power to them and their well-rounded future selves. For now, there are minefields to navigate. Happy trails.

Author: Whitney G.
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Genre(s): Contemporary Romance, Adult, Second Chance
Release Date: September 19, 2017

 ~Synopsis~

We met on a Tuesday. Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday. And everything fell apart on a Tuesday… 

Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I’m a “domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego.” (I do have something huge. It’s not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She’s sexy as hell…And a virgin. 
At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for. 
Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set: 
Professional football for me. Law school for her. 
But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life. 
Until tonight.
We met on a Tuesday. Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday. And now it’s seven years later, on a Tuesday… 
This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele’s “When We Were Young”

~Release Day Review~Lucas (Cold Fury Hockey #8) by Sawyer Bennett~

 

33593824Title: Lucas
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Series: Cold Fury Hockey #8
Publisher: Loveswept
Page Count: 280 pages
Genre(s): Romance, Sport
Release Date: September 19, 2017
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

I started this series a long time ago and I loved the first couple of books.

Somehow along the way, I lost track of it and now it seems I skipped a couple of books. No worries though.. I will be rectifying my mistake. 😉

I am known to read my books out of order and I had no problem reading this one as a standalone…but…I would still advise everyone to read the previous books first. A lot of characters from those books, make an appearance and Lucas also played a part in the previous book. So I think it would make the reading experience better if you do. 😉

I am a huge hockey fan… I have no idea how this came to be, but big men with huge hockey sticks really do it for me. 😛

~Pre-Release Review~Royal Pain (His Royal Hotness #1) by Tracy Wolff~

 

35212286Title: Royal Pain
Author: Tracy Wolff
Series: His Royal Hotness 1
Publisher: Loveswept
Page Count: 230 pages
Genre(s): Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 26, 2017
Reviewer: ~Mary~
Rating: 3.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

He’s a womanizer. He’s cocky. He’s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.
Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.
Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.
But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . .

Now, this was a sweet, definitely hot fairy tale with a prince charming a.k.a “His Royal Hotness” and a common girl.

When the prince crown of Wildemar, Garett despaired tree mounts ago, his twin prince Kian took his place. Garrett was the first born and Kian the second. Since they were born, although they were twins, they were different.Garrett was born to be King, to rule. He was more malleable then Kian. He even wished to be the future king. And so it was very easy for him. He prepared since childhood for this. His country and other needs were first to him than his own. Wildemar comes first.

Kian, on the other hand, was the exact opposite.

I am a big fan of this author. I really loved her “Until” series and the “Underground Kings” !! So, of course, I had to give this new book a go. 😉

Even though I did enjoy reading this one…it wasn’t my favorite of her…I found the opening scene of this book pretty confusing. The heroine was running around with her arms wide and her eyes closed and ran into the hero. When he asks her if she is alright afterward she acts all flighty, and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why, and what was going on.

Thankfully it did get better and things became more clear.
