~Blurb~

 If anyone asks, that’s all that’s in your trunk. Definitely, don’t say anything about the dead guy you just found back there!

Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend.

After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she finds the last guy she’d danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she kill him!?

When her older brother’s best friend offers to help, things start looking up. They’ve known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still treats her like a little kid – surely, committing felonies has to trigger some sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search for the answer to her question.

Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?

In case you didn’t read The Kane trilogy from this author, YOU MUST read it. Like every other author, Stylo Fantome has a unique style of writing. Humorous, funny as hell, intense action, exciting, suspenseful, mind blowing and of course…H O T.

Just a little Junk starts with…Jodi a.k.a Jo a.k.a Jojo

Maria on top:

Jodi is partying in a club with her friends and she is very drunk, and when I mean very, I’m saying unconscious drunk. She has a secret crush on her best friend, actually her brother best friend, who now that he left became her best friend. So…since she is drunk she hits on him and trays to make him jealous.

Archer a.k.a Archie

PMA - Ben Dahlhaus:

Archer is the sexy hot as hell best friend, the neighbor of Jodie. He swerved to Jo’s brother that will protect her, take care of her and never touch her. She was off limits to him. But Cupid made his way after all. He was head over heels for her since they were kids, teenagers, and he became in love with her.

So as a best friend…lover boy he had to take care of her right !?

 :


The next day when Jojo wakes up with the mother of all hangover’s, as this wasn’t just enough when she opens the trunk of her car, she wakes up for real when she sees a dead body in her trunk.

Now, this is all the fun and adventure starts. I’m telling you…this is when your heart, pulse, and breathing takes off. Like for real. Is all suspense, mystery, funny jokes, hotness and exciting.

I LOVED their relationship as friends, as lovers, as partners. To me,  were some moments when she was a total Dom. And I don’t mean it in a sexual way.

 :

No…he was all honey and sweets, not to upset her or to push her away.

But Archie was definitely the bad ass hero of the story. He was powerful, smart, determined. He knew what he wanted, tried in vain to stay away from Jojo, just to be her best friend because he thought he wasn’t good enough for her, that she deserved much better than him…but in the end….

So….if your heart is in good condition and if you want to read something suspenseful, exciting, funny and obviously HOT…

…This book is the one you need…imageedit_15_8758293539

~Blurb~

Ash Bennett’s had enough. She’s not wasting any more time longing for Prince Charming and getting stuck with Prince ‘Babe, What’s For Dinner?’
If she can’t find a respectable, self-sufficient man to start a family with she’ll just do it by herself. It’s better than pinning all your hopes on a guy who’s never going to make you happy. Take Dean Sherwood, sure he’s stupid hot but that doesn’t pay the bills or remember to pick you up from the airport. No, they’re just having a little fun until Ash can find a donor. Right?
If only it was that easy…
Everyone loves Dean. He’s easygoing, a great footballer and always up for a beer or sixteen. He also has the attention span of a Cocker Spaniel on MDMA, but that’s never been a problem where the opposite sex is concerned. At least it wasn’t until he met Ash. Beautiful, driven and wild in bed; she’s all he’s ever wanted in a wife.
Unfortunately, he’s far from what she wants in a husband, what with his perpetually empty bank account and inability to cook anything other than bacon. When she tells him he’s not baby-daddy material, Dean vows to become the man she needs, whatever it takes.
Open Hearts is the sequel to Locked Box. It features angst, bogans, hot sex, naked snowboarding and the triumphant return of Max and Julia who are dealing with a romantic dilemma of their own.

This is my third book read from this author. It’s the same style which I have become accustomed to, funny, hot and sexy. But my favorite one remains Taunt.

Open Hearts opens up with Ashley…

…Who is in conflict with herself because of her latest boyfriend, her sister and herself. Although Ashley and her sister Julie had a rough childhood, and she practically raised her sister, she managed to finish high school, get a job, a car, paid her school and get her a diploma and a properly job as a nurse, and take care of her sister. She lived her life a little too wild, with a lot’s of boyfriends and party’s, and now all she wants is peace, a baby and if is possible, a man. A man who wants to make a baby and if is possible to love her and for her to love him.


Dean a.k.a Red is a huge redhead.

Imagini pentru prince harry

A giant with an even giant heart. A very sexy redhead, as the author describes him. His only flaw is that he is thoughtless, irresponsible. He lived his life a little too wild too, but now he wants to settle down. Wife, kids, house all the family stuff.

When Dean and Ash meet, there is insta love. But only one of them recognizes and fights for the other one.

I loved Dean will all my heart, especially with his Dom/rough side. I loved him even with his dumbness side. How can you not love that sweet, kinky, kind, sexy, gorgeous, giant/big, guy??? He was ambitious, persistent, he fought for what he wanted the most, he changed his entire life for that.

my naughty thoughts:

I loved Ash too, but most of the book…man….

Imagini pentru GIF bitch wtf

I wanted to enter there, in the book, and slap that crazy bi… face. Wtf was wrong with her??? I was so angry with her…

The story was good, I like it. I loved how funny it was some time.

A great book from a great writer.

If you want to read something funny and hot, this book right here is the one.

Julian Dane thought he’d hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn’t that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.

Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall’s heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks.

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, so I went in kind of blind. Thankfully I could follow the storyline just fine so this can be read as a stand-alone. Going in blind also meant I didn’t have any feelings about the MC’s before starting this book. So even though I know, from the reviews I have read about the other books, that Julian was an ass in the past…for me, he started with a clean slate. 😛

tumblr_m3ym8tKkqr1qaybgdo2_500.gif (500×160)

This is a second chance love story, which I am a huge fan of. 😉

Julian has betrayed Kendall in the past and he broke her heart. Kendall wasn’t in the best place of her life at that time either…she has bi-polar and was a bit messed up herself.

tumblr_mgxelpk6SV1rijbg1o1_500.gif (500×259)

I was a bit disappointed, that there was so little info about their pasts in this one. I would have liked to read more about their previous relationship and how Kendall felt struggling with her bipolar. This book really focuses on the present though.

Both of them are doing better now and Julian wants to right his mistakes, make amends and apologize to the woman he has wronged. 

Kendall isn’t so accepting at first though…

Slowly these two get to know each other all over again and grow closer.

227378-Silhouette-Kiss.gif (500×266)

There are some issues, with Kendall’s family not being happy with her relationship with Julian…Even though this book deal with some heavy subjects, such as mental illness and addiction, this book is mostly about becoming the person you were meant to be. Like I said before, there isn’t much about the actual addiction and the struggle with bi-polar because this book starts when both of the MC’s have overcome their struggles.

These two were great together, but they didn’t heal one another. They both came to a point in their lives, where they decided to get their act together…before they reunited. I really appreciated that. They didn’t need to be together, to function…but they wanted to be.

Still, I wished there would have been more information about the time they spend together in the past.

~Review~Fierce Obsessions (The Phoenix Pack #6) by Suzanne Wright~

 

33283628Title: Fierce Obsessions
Author: Suzanne Wright
Series: The Phoenix Pack #6
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Page Count: 306 pages
Release Date: June 13, 2017
Genre(s): Romance, Paranormal, Shifters/Werewolves
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 5 Stars out of 5

~Blurb~

When raven shifter Riley Porter was given sanctuary by the Phoenix Pack, she let them believe she had left her flock. Reluctant to divulge the secrets of her past, she was still embraced as family. Only Tao Lukas, the protective and passionate Head Enforcer of the pack, was resistant to the enigmatic shifter. Until Riley started to arouse in him something other than suspicion.

Tao doesn’t trust lone shifters, especially ones so guarded—and tempting. But the sexual tension between them is making them both come undone, and vulnerable to more than desire. All Tao wants is for Riley to stay with him and to trust him with the truth of her past.

As Riley’s mysteries come to light, so does a danger that threatens not only her life but the safety of the entire pack. For Tao, keeping Riley safe means keeping her close—forever—as his mate.

As many knows, I don’t read a lot of MF books anymore, since I am very picky about them. I will always read a book written by Suzanne Wright though because she has always been one of my favorite MF authors. I have read almost all her books and I will continue to do so in the future.

What can I say…I am a huge fan!!!

superhero-movie-gifs-incredibles-animated-disney-gifs.gif (500×208)


I have known Tao since he was introduced in book 1 of the Phoenix series. I have always wanted to know more about the Head Enforcer of the Phoenix pack.

Riley, a raven shifter, has only recently (previous book) moved to the Phoenix pack. She was taken in by the pack because she came with two young shifter children, who were given sanctuary by the pack.

blue-hair.jpg (450×450):  tumblr_nt6tiwiCjG1qbp4fzo1_500.gif (500×281)


These didn’t start off on the right foot. Tao strongly distrusts strangers, especially lone shifters and he didn’t want Riley anywhere near his pack. That doesn’t mean he didn’t think she was hot though.

After Riley has spent some time with the pack, Tao slowly starts to trust her and even like her…he was already very attracted to her, so now…

he just needs to make a move…which is exactly what he does.

ba631a34db3caac6f26a23acb57f0a43 (480×232)

Riley loves nothing more than antagonizing Tao. It brings her and her raven much pleasure. She can’t deny being very attracted to the man though…So once the ice is broken and Tao suggests they take things a bit further, Riley figures…why the hell not. It’s not like it’s anything serious…

I really liked Riley. It is always very hard for me to like a heroine, which is why I am such a big fan of this series and the other ones written by this author. She writes about very strong females, who don’t take shit from anyone. Riley was funny and kickass.

“You better hope you are never on fire, Tao, because I’m more likely to relax and pull out some marshmallows than to help you.”

Everyone who has read Suzanne Wright’s books knows that they are extremely HOT. This one was no exception. I was, as usual, blushing my way through this one.

“I’ll fuck you in every way I can have you. And then I’ll do it again and again.”

giphy.gif (500×281)


There is a whole background story going on, about Riley’s former flock but I don’t want to spoiler the whole book. It’s best to read it for yourself. These books can be read as stand alone’s, though you wouldn’t know all the side characters (and there are plenty) so I would advise reading the whole series. 

You won’t be sorry! 😀

I myself hope there will be plenty more books in this series and all the others.

No one does shifters, vampires, and demons like Suzanne Wright does. 😛

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

Well…for me, the book was AMAZING.

Amazing written, it has an amazing and unique story, adrenaline, suspense, joy, happiness, hate, intrigue, secrets, power, fight for power, life and freedom. After that ending in The Bandit…I couldn’t get fast enough my hands on this one. All my plans and my expectations were blown away, in a very good way.

This two books certainly entered in my favorite shelve.

Imagini pentru gifs amazing

I don’t know how to start and how to end, without revealing something important and good from the book.

Because everything in the book is a key to a secret or something.

Imagini pentru gifs amazing

I think it was engaging as the first one, very well written, hot but…the ending was a little confusing to me. The book starts right where the first one ended. This book had so many turns and twists. If in The Bandit I could anticipate something…in this book I was completely in the air. I couldn’t think, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t put it down.You know that feeling when you definitely breathe the book?! This one is just like that. I didn’t need anything, I just needed this book.


Main, is so much powerful, mature and  stronger,

Hello, I'm Alexandria. I'm 17 and came here from sacramento, California. I'm very out going and like to have fun. I used to live in Maine. Selene and I have been best friends since birth. We're much alike she just doesn't show it.I love to read and write.:

More determined to win her freedom, to escape from Angel, and so much, very much stubborn. Sometimes, I wanted so much to punch her, to crack her head in two and shove there some brain or mind…

But Angel is so much more determined now than ever to win her back, to win her love, her trust and makes everything to win.

And I do mean EVERYTHING!

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.

Image added in Photography Inspiration Collection in Photography Category:

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.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.

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.

Faking It with Damian by D.J. Hunnam

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.

****4 Stars****

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.

4-star-rating.jpg (1547×292):


I have a very deep love for cowboys, so when I was given the chance of reviewing a “cowboy” book, by one of my favorite authors…I jumped on it !!

You know what they say….and I totally agree !!

save_a_horse_ride_a_cowboy.jpg (400×400):


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

It was very different, from all the other books I have read by her (which are a lot), though one thing has not changed…. the delicious alpha hero.  😉

1406937578668 (500×320):


The beginning of this books has some flashbacks to the past when Maverick and Leighton were much younger. Leighton has always had a huge crush on her best friends older brother.

636020789802055665-1828284865_break-up-quotes.jpg (625×363):


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.

741393._SY540_.jpg (359×540):


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…

1.jpg (905×601):

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...

7677cf1b0a9b7969264d1fa7995f7c3e.gif (500×280)


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…

6674645.gif (500×281)


“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’. ” 

d89cb9f53012c95fae6436b01fe9cae2.jpg (536×603):


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 !!
