ManCard_finalcolor

Nothing ventured, nothing banged…

Ash
I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor–our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down…
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head?

Braht
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.

The Biker’s Virgin by Michelle A. Valentine Review

The Biker’s Virgin

36665344
I was given one simple job. Break in and kidnap a rival MC club’s daughter. 

I wasn’t expecting her to be a barely legal virgin begging me to take her.

I have to have her—wife her up and let the world know she belongs to me. I don’t even care if not following orders could cost me my life.

She’s. Mine.

No one will take her away from me.

A hot, sexy standalone with a dirty-talking biker and his sweet virgin. Releases Dec 7th 2017!

IMG_1474

Wow… this book was smoking hot! I can’t even begin to tell you how dirty this little book was! It definitely shocked me! AND I LOVED IT!

Piper had that whole good girl look down in public but once she was alone with Cade her freaky side came out! And I loved how Cade went wild for Piper! And I loved how dirty he was with Piper!
They fell fast and hard. But they knew in the beginning that they were each other’s soul mates!

I can’t wait to read books from this new series! I definitely think I’m in for a treat if they are anything like this book! I can’t wait!

I loved this little novella! It was hot and sweet and I couldn’t put it down!

Jake and Dylan had been friends for a while. But Jake wanted to take their friendship to the next level. Dylan had been in love with Jake since the day they met. But he never could work up the courage to tell Jake. He never wanted to mess up their friendship.

Jake making the first move by taking Dylan on a cruise. That’s when things really get started between them!
That elevator scene!!! Wow! Loved it! And everything there after.

This novella was a little angsty. But it wasn’t too bad. I definitely think Jake and Dylan should’ve talked right after everything went down with them.

But it all worked out in the end and I absolutely loved the ending! I wished this story was a little longer! I wanted to read more about them!!

BOOK REVIEW: Complicated by Kristen Ashley

IMG_4734When small town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn’t be stronger, but the timing couldn’t be worse.
Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids, and himself, is his only priority.
Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her and the brother she adores that’s perfect for them—a sleepy little town in Nebraska. She’s learned from life that there are no hopes and dreams. The only thing to look forward to is peace. And that’s what she works hard to build for herself and her brother. Right up until Hix walks into her life.
Hix can’t fight the pull and stay away from Greta for long. And Greta’s finding it hard not to hope for something more with all the promise that is Hix.
But when the first murder that’s happened in over five decades rocks his small, sleepy county, Hix has got to learn to trust again, convince Greta to take a shot with him, and at the same time catch a killer.
In other words, things are definitely…Complicated.

Melanie’s 4.5 Star Review:

As with all Kristen Ashley books, she sweeps you away in the intense romance brewing between her characters. In Complicated, we meet Hix a recently divorced father of 3 and also the town’s Sheriff. Admired by both genders of the population, Hix finds himself in a precarious situation when he falls in love with Greta Dare. Ms. Dare, a divorcee herself seems too glamorous for this small town. With luxurious hair, stylish clothes, gorgeous face, and a beautiful voice, she proves that her heart is even more attractive than her looks. Both finding themselves in surprising and uncharted territories, they navigate through it together in a way that only KA can write about. Complicated is a swoon worthy love story that is sure to set you heart on fire.

 I love how candid both Hix and Greta are with each other from the get go. Knowing just how complicated it would get if they both pursued what was happening between them, they try their hardest to break off the connection that seems to naturally tether them to one another. It doesn’t take very long for them to realize the impossibility of staying away. I have to say that aside from KA’s Honey series, Complicated has got to be one of her hottest yet. I swear, I will never look at a head board the same way again. If I’ve made you curious about it, then I highly suggest you buy yourself a copy and find out for yourself. Trust me, you won’t regret it. In fact, you’ll love it. The passion that swirls around Hix and Greta is undeniable—it’s both profound and exciting. These are just some of the things I love about picking up a Kristen Ashley book. She makes you believe that even the most impossible is possible when it comes to love.

 There are some elements of suspense and mystery entwined into the plot line as well which had me at the edge of my seat wanting to know who did it and why. I do wish there was a bit more closure than what was given about it but I also enjoyed the way it all came back to full circle. I’m so glad that the Ms. Ashley decided to release this once Audible exclusive novel into both digital and print because Hix and Greta’s love story was meant not only to be heard but to be lived through the pages too.

About the Author:

Kristen AshleyKristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

BOOK REVIEW: The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey

image1

At Twin Oaks Country Club, there are the fortunate ones, and then there are the rest of us: the waiters, the caddies, the valets, and in my case, the cabana girls. Most days, I’m poolside in a pleated skirt, dishing out margaritas to tycoons and titans. It’s not exactly my dream job, but it does come with one perk…

James Ashwood.

He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.

Besides being a legacy member at the club, he’s a tech mogul and Austin’s most eligible bachelor. Oh, and those dimples? Yeah, they make my stomach dip too.

On good days, I catch his sleek Porsche winding down the tree-lined drive. On better days, I steal a glimpse of his handsome profile as we pass in the hall. And on the absolute best day, I find him alone at the bar, looking for company.

“Come have a seat.”

Those four little words set me down a path I never could have imagined. Private planes, penthouse suites, and temptations around every corner make it impossible to keep my distance. His world feels decadent and wild—but overindulgence comes with a cost. Every kiss comes with strings. Every erotic encounter is a promise I’m not ready to keep.

When I pump the brakes, he hits the gas. James doesn’t want to go slow—he wants a commitment.

And the thing about the fortunate ones?
They’re used to getting what they want.

Melanie’s 5+ Star Review:

With dreamy eyes and a big smile on my face, I shut off my Kindle and ended the love affair with my TOP 2017 read. I’ve read many of R.S. Grey’s books, all of which I’ve enjoyed and most of which I’ve loved but her most recent release, The Fortunate Ones won me over times a million. A feel good romance with enough angst to make a literary masochist’s mouth water. I was unable to put my e-reader down for more than a few minutes at a time—those minutes of course ones that called for emergency family needs. And during those few times, I could almost hear James and Brooke calling a teasing, “Yoo-hoo, over here!” The author’s writing is deftly inviting and her characters so utterly alluring. I couldn’t get enough of Ms. Grey’s words which left me reading through the night and into the early hours of the morning. A full 8 hours night’s rest and the following day’s work productivity be damned.

In The Fortunate Ones, we get a taste of how the rich live. Set mostly inside the lavish premises of Twin Oaks Country Club in Austin, Texas you quickly hone on to the fact that the author may just have some experience in a place like this. I loved the way she described not only the extravagant amenities and services such a place would offer but also love that she goes into great detail about the over-the-top shenanigans its affluent members are up to. The author delivers it in such a witty, humorous way which had me giggling in the dark of my bedroom with a snoring husband next to me. I’m legit thankful for our Tempurpedic having enough sense to cushion the shaking from those incessant giggles.

 Though Brooke, the female lead in this story was born rich and comes from old money, she goes against the grain. Both her and her sister Ellie take up jobs at Twin Oaks instead of depending on their father’s money or finding an equally rich husband to depend on. I loved, loved this about her. She’s well educated, determined, and confident. Brooke would make Beyoncé proud about the whole independent woman thing, but there’s also a softness that makes up so much of who she is. It’s when the infamous James Ashwood comes into her life that this vulnerability really comes into focus. But before we get into that, let’s get into James flippin’ Ashwood—oh yes, PLEASE! Oh, how I’d love to get into James Ashwood, over and over and over again. Hello, heart shaped eyes emoji and oh, there goes those ovaries bursting like they’re mass weapons of destruction. This guy. THIS GUY! He most definitely lives up to the locker room rumors. Intelligence and looks, this guy could win Ms. Universe in a heartbeat. Not even Steve Harvey could mess that one up. Not only is he passionate about his work, but he’s so gosh darn passionate when it comes to Brooke as well. The connection that these two share is something that I went gaga over. So sweet, so DAAAAAAAAAMNED HAAAAAWT! Yep, not HOT—HAWT! It could be that the cat and mouse game they play with each other worked their appetites but when they finally give into their desires their chemistry is so off the Richter scale. So not only was the bed shaking with giggles but boy oh boy, it was also shaking for other reasons which shouldn’t be mentioned for the sake of TMI. Buuuut…“Hello, thigh clench it’s good see you again old pal, how I’ve missed you.” You will self-combust from the heat that emanates between James and Brooke; and no, it’s not page after page of senseless hottie tottie scenes—it’s those couple of scenes that matter and that make the thigh clench all too real.

 While this book could be dubbed as an easy going, feel good read it also has so much angst that comes from both Brooke’s and James’ vulnerabilities—her inability to settle down and his lack of experience in the love department. But the best part about it is that even though they’re both trying to navigate their way, the road always seems to lead back to one another. They make you realize that carefully mapped out plans aren’t always the right direction to take. Rather, it’s truly the heart that leads us the right way, to the right person. The Fortunate Ones really made me feel like the fortunate one to have found my top 2017 read so late into the year. Cue, “Save the Best for Last” by the beautiful Vanessa Williams, ya’ll! This was the book I needed and you can bet that this book is soon going to find its way on to my bookshelf just as it has already found its way into my bookish heart. With it’s delicious and addicting components, R.S. Grey has concocted the perfect modern day love story in The Fortunate Ones.

Lawn Boys by K. Webster Review

Lawn Boys

by K. Webster
A Taboo Treat
Publication Date: November 1, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon | Paperback

She’s lived her life and it has been a good one.
Marriage. College. A family.
Slowly, though, life moved forward and left her at a standstill.

Until the lawn boy barges into her world.
Bossy. Big. Sexy as hell.
A virile young male to remind her she’s all woman.

Too bad she’s twice his age.
Too bad he doesn’t care.

She’s older and wiser and more mature.
Which means absolutely nothing when he’s invading her space.

Just when she thinks she has a handle on things, she meets his twin.

Double the growls.
Double the intensity.
Double the pleasure.

Double the trouble.

IMG_1202

This was an ok read for me. It was a nice switch for me. I usually read older men getting with younger women (still in their teens!lol). But I hardly read younger men getting with older women. I thought it worked out in this book.

Anthony was young but very assertive! He knew what he wanted and how he wanted it. He had been eyeing Stephanie for a while. He finally couldn’t wait anymore and took the first steps to getting her.
Stephanie pushed a little bit… Anthony was exactly what she needed but didn’t think she should be with him because of his age. But once she let go… she knew he was the one to make her happy!

I loved the sex in this book. You could feel the sexual chemistry they have with each other. And the little bit of forbiddeness of the situation.

The only thing that was kind of a what moment for me was the whole Aiden thing. The first time was hot. And I wished that it had went a little further. But the second time seemed off a little. And nothing really came of it.

I’m looking forward and hoping Aiden gets his own book. I would love to read it!
