Holly ….HOTNESS!

Wow… This book was H O T!

...:

Wow this book…was just amazing.

The first thing that drawn me to read this book was the cover, and I didn’t even read the blurb. The whole ride was just what I needed. Once in a while, I have a state of mind a little difficult. I want to read all the books in the world, or at least the ones that I’m interested in, that drawn me, but I don’t feel like reading at all. But with THE BANDIT I had a deadline. And I’m so happy it was an amazing rollercoaster of feelings because thanks to books like this one, my appetite for reading books is back.


The story starts with Mains father, who goes to prison because he murdered his best friend, Angel’s father. Did he really kill his best friend? And if he did it, what was his reason? From the moment her father went to jail, Mains life changes from bad to worse. So after months of struggling to survive, she is desperate. And desperate situations lead to desperate measures. She decides to steal from her worse enemy, but she is caught.

And now she has to pay.

Angel…Angel is the opposite of his name.

What a beautiful name for the devil himself. He is dangerous, jerk, possessive, dominant, vengeful, gorgeous, sexy, rough, persistent, calculated, kinky, ruthless, stubborn. What he wants it’s what he gets. And he seeks revenge. But he seeks it in the wrong place.

can we just take a moment to let how attractive this man is sink in?:


Main and Angel are our heroes. They were destined to be together.

Destined by faith but also by their fathers. Their fathers were best friends, partners in business and the most feared of all the people. They ruled the city, the world. They killed, they stole, they ruled the dirty businesses. From the first time they laid eyes on each other, they knew that they were destined to be together. But Angel wanted to be in his father businesses, so he had to prove to his father that he was capable of that, and his test was to babysit Main.

The attraction and the desire were the most feared enemies of Angel, so he keeps pushing Main away and makes her hate him. She’s only a kid. Most of the time, it worked, but as years pass by and Main grows into a beautiful teenager thru a woman…

…things get complicated.

dk:


This book story had me glued to her from the first page thru the last one. I couldn’t put it down, couldn’t get enough of her.It was written from dual POV. The story was alternating from the past thru the present.The story was interesting and can’t wait to discover the continuing. I didn’t expect that ending but…DAMN.

Z and Lucas were some crazy and  HOT bonus.  Can’t wait to read the next book, and I really hope to see one day the story of Z and Lucas.

What I loved about the book?…Everything!

The story was amazing, captivating, hot, suspenseful….just PURE PLEASURE.

This was an ok read, though it didn’t wow me…I did enjoy reading it.

Valentina, a 31-year-old blogger (think Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City)…

I didn’t care for Valentina a lot…which is one of the main reasons this book didn’t wow me. Her writing-experiment is going very well, comparing Alaskan men to New Yorkers.She catches the eyes of many men, but there is one she is really interested in…

…Logan, the police chief.

These two get to know each other and after some events, they take things a step further. They were pretty hot together and…

Logan had quite the dirty mouth, which is always a plus in my book. 😀

Of course, things won’t stay perfect for long and there are some miscommunications that mess things up for the two of them.

No worries though….this one does end on a perfect HEA. 😉

“Ever f*cked a pirate?”

He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.

Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.

Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?

“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”

But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?

Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.

This is my first read from this author, and my first read with and about the inside of the Mafia. Thru all the book I keep forgetting that the action of the book was in our days. I kept going back in my mind like it was a historical romance.

When I read the blurb and I saw that the book it is about a pirate, I said: “woooow…. hell yeah I’m definitely in”.

“WooooW…. hell yeah, I’m definitely in!” 😀

Imagini pentru GIF HELL YEAH

Although the book is about a pirate, most of the action happens on the land.


So…we have Cora, a daughter’s mob mafia, the most powerful man of all.

Imagini pentru brunette with hazel eyes

Cora is a beautiful brunette with hazel eyes. She loves her parent’s very much and she knows very well what business they run. She doesn’t have a boyfriend in a long time, because of her father power. Every one of them got scared or got removed. She is very stubborn, funny and sometimes very naive.

And when it comes to defending what is hers…

…man….she can become a really Hot Sexy Badass Woman.

gunstocks Say that again Hypercrite!:

Her father runs and controls everything.

When you are the Boss of the Mafia, you expect to be killed, or your family to be in danger because you make harm to a lot of people and you gain a lot of enemies. So Cora is kidnapped, by an enemy of her father, a pirate, but actually, this pirate is made by another enemy to kidnap Cora and wants to use her to get to her father. But plans change.


James is a hot sexy specimen of a man, with dark hair and eyes.

Designer beard:

He is very determined, smart, arrogant,  protective, dominant and very persistent in what he want’s and how he want’s it.James loves to be a pirate, loves his ship and his crew…and especially loves to live on the sea/ocean.

His life was ruined by one mob mafia…

…and he seeks revenge with all his soul and his heart.

But his time has come. Now he has his chance. He changes the plans, or so he thinks he can change them. But actually the plans change themselves and he doesn’t even know.


What I liked about the book was that it had a Romanian character, Nicholas. Yeyyyy.

The story was really good and the sex scenes were really hot.

I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.

My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.

When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. Your only thought will be the insatiable ache between your legs as my name drags across your lips. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just a cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.

WoW!…And I do mean…OMG…WoW… 😀

This is my first read of Sybil Bartel and it most certainly won’t be my last. OMG…if I knew this author can write so HOT I wouldn’t wait this long to read some of her’s books. I couldn’t put this book down.


The story starts with our hero, Jared… Ex-Marine,  a hot and sexy guy, with light brown eyes and dirty blond hair, who for the last three years works as a male escort. He doesn’t do this for the money but he makes it because he enjoys the control.  He’s a dominant alpha. He doesn’t  involve himself in any emotional relationship, no strings.

He is rough, strong, blunt and aggressive.

e743fcfa1821885a4bd6941a120d8fce:

And the ladies pay big money for him to be just like that. He comes, works you out and pretty damn good, then he gets his payment, and goes away, ..just like that. Ohhh…but how good he works….Mmm. 😀


When Sienna enters into the picture, or should I say, enters into his business, when he has to work her…things change. He knows he should stay away from her but, he finds her irresistible and as much as he wants to stay away from her he’s more drawn to her.

Sienna is a preacher’s daughter, she’s the opposite of everything…

Imagini pentru redhead green eyes pinterest

…and from the moment he meets her, he want’s her just because she looks innocent and pure. A sexy redhead with green eyes.

He want’s to ravish her, to make her dirty.

Kiss :

After her break-up with her “boyfriend”, Sienna hire’s the escort service to regain some control in her life and for revenge. When she meets Jared, she is scared of him, but the attraction is stronger.I liked Jared for his aggression and bully stuff but it was some moments when I wanted to kick his butt…


I really liked the story…and it was soo hot. I liked the intrigue, and the plot drew me to want to read the book.

I wanted more action and more suspense…but overall was a great story, a great reading and I will definitely read the next books in this series and other books by this author.

Highly recommended!

Ex-Army Ranger Erik Grady lives for the job. So when his chief at the Boston Fire Department offers him two choices—mandated therapy for supposed PTSD or a permanent desk job at the station, he reluctantly agrees to see a shrink. Only this doctor is unlike anything he expected. Female and curved in all the right places? Check. Hotter than a four-alarm fire? Check. The kind of woman that can heat his blood in and out of bed? Check, check. And oh, yeah, he just happens to have first hand experience…

Of all the men to walk into psychologist Olivia Jones’ office, why did it have to be him? Her one-night stand isn’t playing by the rules of just. One. Night. She’s had her heart broken in the past, and no way is she going there again. And now he’s blackmailing her into three dates? Well, if that’s what it takes to make him see a different therapist, fine. She can handle it. So what if the chemistry between them is combustible? She’s a professional, damn it. She’ll date Mr. I’m Too Sexy For My Bunker Pants. But it won’t end in the fun he expects.

It’s time to see how much heat this fireman can take…

Hot for the Fireman (Boston Heat #1)

by Gina L. Maxwell

*****4.5 Stars*****

imageedit_402_9293335776


Wow….Hot and Hilarious!

This is my second book read by this author and I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Gina L. Maxwell. She has a unique style. Just unmistakeable. For me at least. This book was just hilarious as hell and super HOT. 

Yeah….she writes super hot.

 :


This book was also my second book with the military or former military, read…

…and I have no words to describe the feelings. It’s amazing. But we all know that the war is in no way amazing. Too much hurt and suffering. Too much horrible and horror images that mark every human being. I don’t know how and I will never understand how those people, (because we all know that in the military are both men and women) when they withdraw from the army, people who were in mission in Iraq or other parts, they can be normal people again. And by normal I mean a human being who continues living his/hers life, who makes a future. I am sure they are not NORMAL people again, mentally, because we all know that are some of them that they come back mutilated, and some of them they never come back again… 

I admire these people. People who have the courage, the guts, the strength and power to move on, or at least, trying to move forward. To make a new future and a new life, when they saw what they saw and live thru all that hell.


So as you can tell, this book contains a little part of the story, of such a soldier, a ranger soldier, who tries to move forward, who fights with his own demons.

This is the story of Lieutenant Erik Grady, former ranger soldier, now Boston firefighter, or…

” Hottie McBulgypants”.

real:


The book starts with a sexy stranger in the night, well…actually in a liquor store, with eyes like whiskey and dark hair. He’s a charming, determined, dominant, guy. A man who is every woman’s fantasy. And this time was Olivia’s fantasy and a one-night stand. One night with no compromises, no names exchanged, no information about each other…nothing.

They meet, they have a one-night stand and they return to their lives.

.:

Only,  life and fate had other plans.


Erik loves his job immensely. He also loves his real family and his brothers from the firehouse. His job is his life. So when his PTSD worsens and gives him panic attacks on his job, he is forced to see a therapist.

But when he meets his ‘Doc’…..fire’s in the house.

20c19dc0e6dc0d01c0d0f0198bd86a0a:

” Leaning a shoulder against the doorway, thumbs hooked in his front pockets and one ankle crossed over the other, Olivia’s worst nightmare and favorite fantasy leveled her with his penetrating stare and wicked grin. “What’s up, Doc?”


blonde hair for hazel eyes - Google Search:

After two years of heartbreak, Olivia decides that she is ready to date again, but she is constantly disappointed. So when the sexy as sin stranger propose the one night stand, she agrees. And ‘Wolf’ sticks to the nickname. She leaves the hotel room with her WOLF in her thoughts and in her mind and for that, she is stuck to the spot in her chair when she meets her new patient.

I loved the second characters and can’t wait to read their story.

Highly recommended!

I don’t do relationships…especially not with egotistical jerks like my new boss, Damian Wood. The man is vile, arrogant, condescending… and scorching hot. If he weren’t my boss and a grade-A a*&hole, I would turn on my world-famous charm and seduce the pants right off the man. But giving in to his undeniable allure might just cost me my job. Or worse yet, my heart.

I’m a prick…and Janice Holder’s new boss. Which means I should stay away, but I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. If I don’t get my twisted fascination under control, it will only be a matter of time before I bend her over my desk and screw her. Hard. The way I’ve imagined no fewer than a thousand times since we met. I’m playing with fire and neither of us can afford to get burned, but landing in hot water might just be worth the risk.

Faking It with Damian is a full-length, standalone office romance. It contains steamy scenes with a ton of heat and strong language intended for mature audiences.

****3.5 Stars****

The book starts with Janice.

Imagine similară

A beautiful blond girl with green eyes and a smoking hot body (of course she has a perfect body, she’s a Zumba instructor part time). Her dad abandoned her and her mother when she was a little girl. She doesn’t do relationships, she’s afraid of commitment, she thinks everyone will abandon her. But she also doesn’t have time for anyone in her life, because she takes care of her mother, who is dying.  She also hates her boss because he’s making her life miserable at work. But as much as she hates him, as much she is attracted to him. 


Damian is Janice new boss.

Imagini pentru hot guy dark hair with blue eyes

He’s a very sexy god with dark hair and blue eyes who takes every woman’s breath away. He is also an arrogant asshole, demanding, dominant and vile. As much as he try’s to stay as far away as possible from Janice, he is more and more attracted to her, and he does everything in his power to have her. Even lie to her and drag her in some funny games. Damian also had a hard life. His parents hating him all his life, and much more when his grandfather left all his fortune to him.


When the opportunity strikes, he doesn’t kick it away, he takes advantage and attracts Janice in his trap.

Every opportunity that he has.

“Kneel”

L〰:

What a demanding asshole. That scene…so intense.


The story with Damian wife was interesting, and although I don’t like drama, this one I enjoyed.

The book was intense but in the end...it softened. The sex action was good and hot…but to much licking. I liked that, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted much action in the real sex part. It was a scene when I thought that I would get some menage action, but damn…..no.

Interesting story with her father and the reason why he left her and her mother. That one I was not expecting.The book was good. The chemistry and the attraction between them were hot and intense, but I didn’t get Janice most of the time.

The book was funny, was good written, I liked the story, I liked the hero…but not so much the heroine.

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Star_rating_4_of_5.png (1011×215):


Ever since reading the first book in the “Stage Dive” series, I have been a huge fan of Kylie Scott.

I loved all books in that series and so when the “Dive Bar” series came out, I jumped right into that one too. I really liked the first book in this series, so when I received an ARC for book 2, it made my day.  🙂

sister-act-gif-1450365032.gif (600×300)


I have to say that I liked this book a bit more than book 1. Reason being… the heroine.   She was extremely funny and sarcastic…and I just love some me good sarcasm…

This book is about Joe and Alex….and no, Alex is not a guy….sorry guys. 😛

Joe is a sexy lumbersexual, working as a bartender at “Dive Bar”. He also helps his father in his carpentry business. Joe has a beard….Bearded men usually don’t do it for me….at all. However, the reference to “Thor” kind of got to me, so I figured I could work with it.  😉

Chris-Hemsworth-Hair-Thor.jpg (500×500):

Joe has been snooping in his brother Erik’s online dating account and it was there, that he met the lovely Alex.


Alex is a graphic designer, who works mostly from home.

She doesn’t have many friends, just one really because she is a bit socially awkward. She doesn’t do relationships either. One night stands are really all that she is after, but after emailing back and forth with her new online buddy, she starts reconsidering. Finally, she picks up the courage, to go meet the man face to face.

2feffc45e416e70dc535c95fa1f377d1.jpg (448×640):

These two don’t really start off on the right foot. It did make for some hilarious scenes, though.

I loved snarky Alex !!

“Lumbersexuals were clearly the worst. Truth was, I’d never been especially into beards.  At best, I’d been indifferent. Now, however, I outright despised them. Horrible hairy frames for lying lips and duplicitous tongues, that’s what they were. Loathsome whiskery bastards. Burn them all in a fire”.

This girl was funny as hell !!


I also really liked Joe. He was very sweet, charming and sexy, though, at the end, he pissed me off something fierce !!

Still…these two made an awesome couple.

They were funny together, their banter was great and the steam was HOT !!

giphy.gif (500×250)


I am very curious to see who is gonna be next in this series. I myself hope it’s Erik’s turn to fall flat on his face. That guy needs a good kick in the nuts by the right girl !!

Even though I really liked this book and I laughed my ass off…

Mal and Jimmy from “Stage Dive” will always be my favorites…..though you never know.

 

An ARC was kindly provided to me, by the author, in exchange for an honest review.

“Lost Rider” is the first book in this new series by Haper Sloan.

Maverick had a really hard time growing up.

His father was an absolute asshole and the only thing that kept Maverick going were his dreams of bull riding…and Leighton. He knows he can’t stay…he is slowly dying inside. He knows she has a big crush on him and he knows that she would follow him to the end of the world if need be…So he does the only thing he can think of. He breaks her 16-year-old heart into little pieces and goes off to chase his dreams.

Fast forward 10 years and Maverick is forced to come home again.

His bull riding career has come to a screeching halt and his siblings need him because their father has died. Coming home also means…

…Coming face to face with the one girl he never wanted to leave…

Leighton was crushed when Maverick broke her heart and left…

But she has since grown up and made a life for herself. Maverick still owns a piece of her heart though and she doesn’t know if that will ever change. Now Maverick has come back and he has made it very clear he wants her and he intends to never let her go.

But how will she ever trust him again...

This was a very low on angst, second chance story.

Not only a second chance on love but a second chance on family and life. I enjoyed reading it, though I would have enjoyed it more if there would have been a bit more angst. I also would have preferred a bit more dialogue. The MC’s spend a lot of time in their heads…

I liked Maverick and Leighton, though Leighton did annoy me at times. I know what Maverick did to her when she was 16, was extremely shitty, but in my opinion, him leaving was a necessity. Not everything was about her, though for some reason, she made it out to be. Thankfully she was also funny as hell, so that made up for her annoying parts.

As for Maverick…yeah he was a major asshole in the beginning. But what can I say…I like assholes and he did try very hard to redeem himself. He was also a major dirty talker, which get’s me all the time.  😉

The steam in this book was delicious…

“I was lost once. A Rider without the ability to do what he loved. I came home even though it was the last place I thought I wanted to be, and in the process not only did I find myself again, but I also found that my reason for livin’ didn’t have shit to do with ridin’. ”

I do have to say that “Corps Security” and especially “Hope Town” are still my favorite series by this author, though. I don’t think anything will change that. Still, this was a very sweet, low on angst and high on love “second chance” story. I am definitely reading the next book !!

Kept from You (Tear Asunder #4) by Nashoda Rose

*****4.5 Stars*****


I am seriously in love with this series and I have been waiting (not so patiently) for Kite’s story.

This is the fourth book in the series and I think it could be read as a stand alone. Why anyone would actually want to do that, is beyond me, though, because all the books in this series are awesome. So my advice…start at the beginning.  😉

Kite (Killian) is the drummer for the famous band “Tear Asunder”.

In the previous books, he always came across as kind of a badass, who was into kinky sex like BDSM. Things aren’t always as they seem, though….

This book starts with Kite and Savvy still in high school getting to know each other.

They both have a hard time growing up. Kite especially is very angry and he has a right to be. He might be a bad boy with a bad boy attitude, but he tries to use his anger for good. That means fighting bullies and drug suppliers. Still…everyone knows not to mess with Kite. Savvy (15) is the kind of person that sees the good in everyone, especially in bad boy Kite. She might be a bit scared, but she can’t help but feel drawn to him.

These two form a strong bond, however, short they’re the time they spend together is. A bond that is sealed with a kiss, when circumstances force them to say goodbye

Fast forward 11 years and they come face to face once again, this time because Savvy has run out of options and she needs a favor….


They never got over that magical kiss and this time, Kite won’t let her go…

I don’t want to go into the plot any deeper than this. Of course, there is much much more, but that would spoiler the story and like all the books in this series….this one should be read without spoilers.

I will tell you, however, that Kite is quite the dirty talker.

I had to fan myself more than once.  😉


I really enjoyed Kite and Savvy’s story.

She was so sweet and forgiving, while he was also so sweet, yet still angry. I think they were the perfect Ying and Yang. I am not gonna lie, though. Haven and Crisis (book 3)  are still my absolute favorite couple in this series. I would also suggest to everyone to read the “Unyielding” series, which is a spin-off of this series !!

Can’t wait for the next book in this series….which will be Trevor’s !!!

Throne of Truth (Truth and Lies Duet #2) by Pepper Winters

*****5 Stars*****transp


Simply and truly a real MASTERPIECE. That’s what this book was.

Amazing story, amazing characters, amazing writing. Throne of Truth was one of my most anticipated books! It’s the conclusion to this story because Crown of Lies left me wanting for more!  

A roller coaster of epic proportions!

The second book starts right after the first one ended.

With Elle in danger. And with all the danger, she remains strong and fights for her freedom and life, until the end.

It starts explosive and didn’t let down until the end.

I don’t want to enter in so many details of the book because I don’t want to spoil the joy of the next readers, I just want to express my feelings. While reading this book, my feelings were like a tornado.

Penn was such an enigmatic, dirty-talker.

Infinity:

“My lips sought hers. I dragged her forward, our mouths connecting in a vicious kiss.She cried out as I held her close.
My tongue licked her seam, begging for entry but not forcing, even though every cell in my body demanded to shove her back, climb on top, and show her in actions, not words who I was.”

Commanding, kinky, devious and possessive hero. Penn’s story is pain and struggle. Throne of Truth gives us the full story of Penn.


Who he is, what he’s been hiding, and why?

Imagine similară

I’d hunted her down, invaded her life, and befriended her father because of emotion. To deny that would be the worst kind of lie because it would mean I’d have to lie to myself.


Elle’s trust and faith are put to the ultimate test.

“How did I ever believe I could walk away from him? How did one truth delete so many lies and make everything seem inconsequential now he was back in my life?”

When it comes to standing by her man, Elle does everything in her power to protect him.

She is a powerful woman!!

The book is told from dual POVs, is full of suspense, second chance to love, deceit, betrayal, jealousy, conspiracy, greed and… lies.

“Our bodies reacquainted, our hearts patterned to the same rhythm, our minds synced into one frequency.”

I recommend to not read any reviews for this book if you haven’t read the first book.

AMAZING BOOK!

Dirty Wife Games (Indecent Games #2) by Clarissa Wild

****3.5 Stars****

35hhh


This was my first reading from this author. What attracted me to read this book was the blurb. I didn’t read the first book to know exactly what to expect. The book is written in dual perspectives between Hyun and Drake.The book is written in many plans. In the past when Hyun meets her future husband, in her marriage whether monster husband and in the present.


 The book is about a woman, who is forced by her parents to marry a co-worker of her father’s.

Greg Warren, a monster of a man.


But what I loved about her was her strength and her determination to escape that painful life. The action of the book is mainly based on the present, when she’s gone from her husband for a few months. She lives, or try to live her life like a free woman.
“I can survive, knowing he is there, wherever I go. I never know when or where I’m going to see him again. I just know I will.”

..:


 She is watched. Every move or action of her’s is followed and never out of sight. She is stalked by a stranger. So instead of feeling scared, she feels safe.
How the story goes is up to you to discover.
