Nic’s Rating:   This was recommended to me by several other friends when we were in Vegas for the Naughty Mafia event in August.  I knew that this had to move up on my TBR list but unfortunately I didn’t get to it until this past January.  This was such a remarkable and touching story.  I laughed, I cried, I got frustrated, I felt sad, I felt happy…it was definitely an emotional roller coaster while reading this book.  The connection that I felt with all of the characters had me wanting more of all of their stories (us damn greedy readers always wanting more).   ;-)   No, but seriously I think we totally could use more from ♥Sabin♥.  This story is NOT one to be missed.  MUST read for everyone.

Synopsis:

What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?  Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.*This book is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content.Note: due to mature content recommended for Ages 17+

A couple of weeks ago, the author tweeted, asking readers to describe Brody Markham in one word.  My choice based on book 1, mysterious.

We first met Brody in book 1, as Hunter’s reclusive and cranky twin brother who was recently released from prison.  What was his crime?  Until this book, it was unknown.  In this book, we learn early on, that prison time was due (no spoilers) to an event that took place with his now ex-girlfriend, Stacy Hutchens.  This bitch actually broke up with him after he was sentenced.  Nice.  Real nice.  And when you learn the secret Brody has kept from everyone, you will hate her even more.  Brody’s current feelings for Stacy can best be described as hostile.  She took advantage of him, using her family’s money and power.  Given that she comes from a wealthy family, Brody is quick to assume other people from wealth would treat him similarly, which explains why he was so rude to Alyssa Myers in book 1.

The fact he called me a snotty, rich bitch heiress – yes, those were his exact words – still stings a hell of a lot.

Brody quickly learns that his first impression of Alyssa was way off base.  She Continue reading ‘Review: [Make It a Double] (Last Call #2) by Sawyer Bennett’

heartinwire2

So in HIW we deal with all the after math. Patrick trying to fix his broken heart and trying to forget what he did to his friend. OMG, I didn’t know until now how bad it was for Mr. Clementines(Jamie). Get this, I felt bad for him. That conversation with him and Patrick was so sad. Mind you I hate Jamie and can’t stand clementines because of him. Ruined. Patrick was so hurt over not being able to help him and at the end he took things upon his hands. And the plot that he put together with Frank and Jesse. Those 3 had it all planned out. It seemed that Patrick left one storm to get into another one. Now he has a family situation to deal with, he still feels like he’s pulled back to El somehow and the new girl that’s going to drag him by the balls…Team Marly!!

I can’t fully guarantee you that this is a spoil free review. I’m undecided about this book. Not in a bad way. Stuck on what to rate it. There were many things I liked about the story but it also goes back and forth, to flashbacks and her dreams, where it seemed most of the story took place. I don’t have an issue with flashbacks and dreams but I don’t want them to take over the whole story. I need a present tense.
Madison’s sister Alice dies and leaves her the lingerie shop, Naughty Bits. This is not your average lingerie shop. There are many other items sold there and Alice enjoyed decorating her shop. Being only 5 years apart, and although they were very different from each other, they were also very close. It was sad because Madison feels she failed her. Not being there for her. Truth is Alice didn’t tell her she was sick until the very end when all she wanted was her sister by her side. This is probably one of the things I enjoyed most about the book. Even though Alice was dead, she was still able to help her sister. The flashbacks of their time together wasn’t making it any easier for Madison to be at the shop. Madison wasn’t sure about herself and it turns out her sister knew her very well. Well enough to leave her the shop and also tell her that’s she’s a submissive.

 


Big sister Alice had some help from the the gentleman who owned the hardware store(A Different Time Hardware) next door, Mr. Logan Scott. There’s also Troy who works for Mr. Scott and it is he who Madison first meets at the lingerie shop. Alright so let me break this down to you quickly. Logan is a Dom and is training Troy for his new Mistress. Yes fun. No training is showed yet. In his hardware store Logan also builds custom handmade toys, benches, tables, cages, etc, to special customers. More fun. I know I want to read the next book because I feel there has to be more of Logan than what we get. All I know is that he can melt Madison’s panties with barely touching her. I sense that this Master is going to be a very delicious one. He’s almost in his 40′s so you know he’s got experience. Oh and the best part, Alice leaves Madison a letter saying to trust Continue reading ‘#SMUTBookFridays | Review [Naughty Bits Part I: The Lingerie Shop](Naughty Bits #1) by Joey Hill’

I would advice that you read the novella First Night first. It’s Clay and Julia’s first encounter. The short steamy story of their first night together. It was supposed to just be one night but Julia left Clay wanting more and vice-versa because Julia couldn’t stop thinking about Clay. All she ever wanted were 8 inches and a brain, and well, Clay gave them to her and then some. Now they are both needy for each other and decide to spend the weekend together. Maybe this wasn’t the best idea for 2 people who aren’t willing to give up anymore than just sex. First it was one night, now a weekend. Soon they will start having feelings for each other that’s when the hurting begins.

image

Julia is a dependent woman. Has a set of walls that she’s not willing to let just any man crumble including Clay. She’s sassy and knows what she wants and her heart is now telling her it wants Clay. But is she willing to let him in? Can she trust him enough to let him know her secret? Oh yes the Secret. You know the good stories have to give you some angst. Clay hates liars and he feels Julia is hiding something from him. He’s even willing to wait for Julia to tell him the truth. But for how long?

image

Of course with angst comes drama. Julia’s ex left her with a big problem she is still paying for. She’s trying to keep those closest to her as far as possible and safe. That also means Clay. She’s developing stronger feelings for him and doesn’t want to drag him along. She’s also lying to him. I wanted Julia to just confess it to Clay and hoped that he would understand. He’s opened up to her en Continue reading ‘#SMUTBookFridays | Review [Night After Night](Seductive Nights, #1) by Lauren Blakely’

Cover Reveal: [Where There's Smoke] by Elizabeth Lee

We are thrilled to bring you the cover for Elizabeth Lee’s WHERE THERE’S SMOKE!! WHERE THERE’S SMOKE is a New Adult Romantic Suspense novel being released on May 20th.

Where There's Smoke Front Cover

This cover was designed by Lauren Perry of L. Perry Designs.

 

About WHERE THERE’S SMOKE:

There is something to be said for letting go. Ryland Roberts knows that better than anyone. He’d let go of his ambitions, of his family and—most of all—of her. He’d perfected the art of putting his past behind him and accepted the fact that the town he wanted to leave in his rearview was the place where he was going to live out his days. But sometimes the past doesn’t just go away. Sometimes it comes back to haunt you.

Piper Jameson convinced herself that she left for all the right reasons. She’d saved people by leaving—made sure that they weren’t tainted by her rebellious ways. When her little sister asks her to come home and say goodbye to their ailing mother, she’s forced to see that things aren’t always as they seem. The people who she’d left behind might not have been saved at all.

In the amount of time it takes a bullet to travel from point A to point B, Piper and Ryland will have to put their feelings for each other aside and make a choice. Forced on the run with Piper’s sister, they begin to understand that the future they thought was gone was never really lost.

SUMMARY
In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled

and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-
wedding festivities.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.

The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and
misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of…my final test.

I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you’ve heard the whole story.

And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?

Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.KATI don’t beg.
I don’t cry.
And I don’t give second chances.Ream, the lead guitarist of the rock band Tear Asunder, deserves a gold medal for best dick move ever when he ran the moment he discovered my secret after two days of hot sex. Then he brings some chick to my coming home party from the hospital—after being shot.
I hate him.Until …Ream’s six foot two frame unfolds out of the car after being gone on tour for eight months. I stared. And in my defense, any girl would stare. It would almost be rude not to because Ream was the type of guy who stood out. Not because he was loud and obnoxious. No, it was because he was the complete opposite. Subtle and dangerously quiet. If he spoke, you’d better hope he liked you because otherwise you’d be falling at his feet begging for mercy. Except me … I don’t beg—ever.
But when our eyes locked, it was Ream’s steady confidence that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers.Then…Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.

Sex is ugly. It’s using someone for your own narcissistic pleasure. I did it, but hated it—until her. She was unfuckinexpected. Then I had to wreck our beginning with my screwed up past. I don’t deserve her, but I’m selfish and I’m taking her anyway. This is who I am and it’s too late to change me.
