Release – Fools Rush In by Lilliana Anderson

Title: Fools Rush In
Series: A Cartwright Brother Romance
Author: Lilliana Anderson
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 30, 2018

I was a good girl. But I wanted him, knowing he was a thief. Did that make me bad?
Before Sam, I was the most boring, awkward and level-headed person you’d ever met. I was my best friend’s side-kick, the supporting actress to another person’s life. 

And I was OK like that. 
I was lonely. 
But I was OK. 

Then he came along. Our eyes locked and BANG my heart started beating. As my blood warmed and pumped around my body, everything changed. Before that moment, I had been as dead inside as my mortuary ‘clients’. 

Now I was alive, experiencing things for the first time, enamoured with a man I knew to be a criminal. 
Instead of running and remaining the good Christian girl I was, I married him. 
Now, I had to live with the consequences of that decision.

LoveInCMinor_promo

Seventeen-year-old Reagan seems like the perfect small-town girl. Dubbed a saint by her older brother, Lincoln, she serves the community, makes straight A’s, attends church, spends her summers working with special needs children, and is a piano playing prodigy.

When you’re the daughter of the mayor and the police chief in a sleepy Kansas town, toeing the line is easier than the alternative.

That is, until her brother’s best friend changes the rules.

Reagan’s been subject to Ridley’s antics her entire life. Growing up, he tormented and teased her, but he kept his distance—until now. When Ridley breaks a promise, late night phone calls and secret rendezvous in the haystacks quickly transform into a reckless, all-consuming love.

Some promises are meant to be broken. Some secrets will not be contained, and sometimes the consequences we render are more than we can bear.

Cover Package: Hotel O by Clariss Wild

 
 
Title: Hotel O
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Super Hot Erotic Romance (stand alone)
Release Date: May 2, 2018
Cover Design: Booming Cover
 
 
Pleasure is business.
That’s our motto here at Hotel O.
No strings attached gratification is what we provide. Nothing is off limits.
And all of it stays within these walls.
My job as the organizer of these events requires a personal sacrifice.
Girlfriends are a liability I can’t afford.
So I get my own satisfaction somewhere else.
Online.
Anonymous.
Nothing beyond a one-night stand …
And I’ve found the perfect toy to play with.
A persistent, equally wicked girl that I can’t say no to.
The girl who’s going to make me risk it all.

Welcome to Hotel O … Enjoy your stay.

Author’s Note: Hotel O is complete and utter filthiness. Expect lots of debauchery … with multiple people. Please do not read if you’re easily offended or do not enjoy romances that explore the boundaries of depravity … Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Within seconds, the door handle clicks, and I hold my breath in anticipation.

A man in a black suit and a red tie steps in. The door shuts behind him.

My eyes glide over his body and his glide over mine. His face too is hidden behind a mask.

He’s tall and his hair is thick and dark, just like his voice when he says, “Hello Kitten …”

I’m struck in awe at the sound of his voice. It’s real. It’s him.

That same shiver runs up and down my spine as he approaches me slowly.

In a split second, images of violence flash through my mind. All the possible things that could happen. All the things he could do to me.

We’re alone, in a hotel room, and neither of us know each other by name.

He could do anything he wanted.

Take me. Use me. Lock me up.

Kill me.

And no one would ever know it was him.

It’s the perfect setting for the perfect crime.

And yet I’m not afraid of him.

I’m only afraid of my own reactions to what’s about to go down.

Meeting him was the only thing I wanted … and now that it’s finally happening I wonder if it’ll be enough. If I can satiate my needs without crossing the line.

He comes even closer. I don’t move an inch. I don’t know if it’s because I’m scared, or if it’s because my body feels as if it’s made out of rocks and ice.

I shudder when he stands across from the bed, leans against the dresser, and casually slides his eyes from the tips of my toes hidden in black heels all the way up to my high pony tail without any shame.

His tongue dips out to wet his lips, and for a second there I wish he licked mine instead.

He cocks his head. “So … this is what you want.”

I nod and part my lips to say something, but nothing springs to mind. Nothing important … except for the fact that I want him to fuck me raw.

5 STAR ARC BOOKSHELF HOT READS RECOMMEND REVIEW

The Praetorian by Dawn L. Chiletz

 

 

The Praetorian

  

 The Praetorian
 Dawn L. Chiletz
2018

 

Prae·to·ri·an /prēˈtôrēən/- a skilled warrior serving as the personal guard of a Roman Emperor.

Bad-boy rock star Roman Creed keeps his secret locked behind a door.

When Seamore Productions offers to find him a new bodyguard through a reality TV show, Roman reluctantly agrees. He needs some good press and better security. The last thing he expects is a beautiful, curious cop to get under his skin and into his past. Why can’t he stop thinking about her?

Tough-as-nails detective Reed Manning keeps her secret locked away in her mind.

After being suspended from the police force, she considers trying out for the show. She’s supposed to keep her eye on the cash prize, but her potential boss captures her attention. What is he so desperately trying to hide?

When a single decision can change a life-
Never let your guard down.

 

 

 

Only yesterday, I wrote in a review that there are three kinds of Rockstar novels and I stick to this idea – because The Praetorian by Dawn L. Chiletz proves me right. Like the book I reviewed yesterday

 

First, I have to say Ms. Chiletz is a “new to me” author and I like her writing. Even if there is a little “but” coming at the end of this review.

 

The Praetorian belongs to the best of these three groups. The one that gives you all the classic clichés you would expect from a rock star romance and something NEW…

 

 

Or in this case several things new. This “thing” with the reality show was new to me in the relation of Rockstars. And then there was the suspense that was added to the story that came from something totally different.

 

Actually in my mind this is not ONE but a kind of 3in1 story. We have the Rockstar Romance – then the reality show and then there is something interesting that I would like to call “Murder by Death” feel … . Google that and you will come up with a movie I had to think of constantly while reading.  Murder by Death is a 1976 American satirical mystery comedy that is closely related tot he stories of Agatha Christie.

 

Please for the sake of spoilers do not ask me why that movie is running in circles around in my mind – just take my word for it.

 

My feelings for this book are somehow 100 % positive while I am not happy with the plot development … Strange right ? Can not say that ever happened. Maybe because the author kept my mind spinning and guessing , spinning again and guessing some more. So yes this is a 5 star read with a few buts..

 

The 5 stars are for engaging the reader so deeply that I did not want to put the book down – so basically the suspense part – which has been a long time for me since I was feeling something like that with a book.  But not for the romance part of the book … well lets say there was romance … but this book is no romance novel… as that took the backseat to the rest that was going on.

 

And then there is this thing about the plot development … The author kept me on my toes from the beginning on … I was (as I said) guessing and trying to figure out things. The story keeps a steady pace and there is a high build up in tension, but then when the reader is offered a solution the book suddenly kind of gets fast paced as if someone had set a final page number and the author suddenly realized she only had like 10 pages to come to an end. I felt kind of sorry for the characters. They were working so hard to get THEIR time and it was somehow cut short.

 

If I had a free wish, something that I could request from the author it would be the following : (I think she will understand if I tell it this vaguely to avoid spoilers)

 

Dear Author,

Quoting the blurb : Bad-boy rock star Roman Creed keeps his secret locked behind a door…. The secret behind that door…. Gets kind of lost in the end … with all the suspense and everything going on. There was a moment when I felt that that “secret” deserves its own book. I kind of NEED that “secret” to have its own book.  So PLEASE consider it – I think there are several readers out here thinking the same. You can contact me anytime if you want to know what I am thinking and why as I do not want to leave these spoilers here out in the open.

And in the End .. thank you for a “late night reading shift” – I could not put this book down …

5 STAR ARC BOOKSHELF HOT READS RECOMMEND

Midnight Valentine by J.T. Geissinger

 

 

Midnight Valentine

  

 Midnight Valentine
 J.T. Geissinger
February 6th 2018

 

True love never dies.

Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.

Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye. When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.

Is a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love possible, or is a broken heart the cruelest kind of liar?

 

 

 

Dear Ms. Geissinger,

 

A few days have passed since I finished reading Midnight Valentine. And I really needed that time to gather my thoughts and feelings. Let me open with a “Thank you”  – from the bottom of my heart … THANK YOU FOR CHANGING YOUR MIND (I can only remember once when I told an author this before and the situation was very similar)… The other option you had was NO OPTION  – so please all artists freedom cast aside DON’T EVER DO THAT … no matter how much it tempts you DON’T … please pleas please…

 

Dear future Readers,

 

I will not say anything about the story itself because that simply should not be done and I hope that none of the other readers will do it.  Yea – you are guessing right – This is THAT kind of story … the one where you should go in blind. I admit I had my suspicions and I was proven right but that actually does not matter.

 

The one thing I might want to add is that you need to be open to certain views on life – but if you read the Blurb you should have a good guess what I am talking about. Just toy around with ideas OK?

 

If you read any other books of this author and because of the intensity I would like to mention “make me sin” in this reference, you know what kind of book you will get here. I had one or two of these “it’s hard to breath because my heart is beating so fast” moments here again.

 

JT Geissinger will present you with leading characters that are broken yet so strong that you can not help but route for them. I loved both characters so much that it was easy to get lost in the story and it hurt when I had to leave them. The story setting was created in such vivid details that it was easy to feel not only a close relation to the characters but also the surrounding.

 

So please be open to possibilities beyond what is assumed to be predictable or normal and I hope you love the story as much as I did.

Review – Soul Redeemed (Sons of Wrath #4) by Keri Lake

Soul Redeemed Book Cover Soul Redeemed
(Sons of Wrath #4)
Keri Lake
Paranormal Romance
27th June 2017
kindle version
338

Being half incubus sucks sometimes. Sure, the sex is great, but getting hounded by females gets old pretty fast. Especially when the only one Calix cares about has gone missing, propelling him into a downward spiral of depression and abstinence.

Trapped by a wannabe mad scientist inside a nightmare of her own, Ava longs to be free, even if it means going back to the only male she regrets having betrayed. All she needs is a single opportunity to lead the way.

Calix should hate Ava for the way she deceived him and his brothers. Yet, when she shows up looking like she’s been through a hell of her own, the sweet relief over her return battles the bitter sting of her betrayal, and Calix can’t bring himself to turn her away. Not to mention, an incubus who’s starved himself of sex for too long is a detriment to everyone—including his brothers—and the way Ava commands his body is exactly the release he needs.

Unfortunately, thanks to the lunatic who held her captive, she’s now a walking death trap to any male that tries to bed her. But danger is closing in, placing Ava’s life in jeopardy, and if Calix doesn’t find a way to control his virile urges, he might just be her deadliest threat.

4.5 ‘Even In Death’ Stars.

Ava had a tough choice to make betray Calix and his brothers or burn in hell next to her sadistic brother. Being half human/ half fallen she decided to betray Calix and a day doesn’t go by without her regretting it.

But her freedom didn’t last for long being captured by a mad scientist and being injected with a deadly virus haven’t helped her current situation. After months she finally manages to escape and goes to the only place she feels safe the one place where she might not be wanted.

The heart wants what the heart wants, and Calix half incubus/Wrath wants Ava despite her betrayal and the pain that she has caused. After months of starving himself she reappears but not without consequences.

Calix must learn to trust Ava again but ends up forgiving her because she redeems herself on numerous accounts. I didn’t particularly care about these two in the other books, but I have a place saved in my heart just for them.

I loved the chemistry between these two off the charts hot and slightly kinky.

“Death by blowjob? That’s exactly how I want to go.”

There is just something about this series that makes it really addictive. It is action-packed, exciting and you submerge yourself into a world you don’t want to leave. Ms. Lake delivers a great paranormal series with ups and downs for all characters. Gritty, with flawed characters but you can’t help but love. It shows the belly of the underworld with all its twisted glory.

You can clearly feel the bond that the Wrath Brothers have with one another and the connection they have to their mates. It’s like you are part of the gang and are in on the action. I’m going to be honest here I thought that I wouldn’t like it, but I am glad that I did, and I need the other books now.

Out of all the males in the book it is hard to choose a favorite they are all VERY appealing. I l love logan, Gavin and Calix but there is also something about Ferno, Zayne and Xander (kind of feel as if I shouldn’t like the fallen angel) but there are worse things in life.

There were times when I was biting on my nails with what was going to happen next and at 81 % I got so peeved off it was unbelievable. Surly the author wouldn’t cross that line. Sweet baby Jesus all I can say is that she didn’t cross that line. Otherwise I would have gone on a rampage. It’s not a pretty sight when that happens. I become a mini version of the Hulk. I just don’t turn green.

Finally, a series I am up to date on. I really hope to see Denya and Zayne get a book. Zayne so needs some TLC and he is in some serious deep shite.

Release Package: Snowed in with the Stuntmen by Riley Love

 
 
Title: Snowed In With The Stuntmen
Series: Behind the Scenes #1
Author: Riley Love
Genre: Contemporary Reverse Harem Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2018 
 
 
 
 
 

 

One snowstorm. Four stuntmen to keep me warm.

 

 
I’ve landed the role of a lifetime, starring in a major feature film.
 
But—there’s always one of those, isn’t there?
 
My ex is starring opposite me, and he’s making sure I know he’s moved on.
 
Paparazzi are everywhere, trying to get the story of why we called it quits.
 
I want to get out of here, but with a huge snowstorm coming in, no one’s leaving this secluded resort.
 
My four sexy costars are supposed to play the villains, but this weekend, they’ll show me I’m the star of the show.

 


 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
“We have a confession to make.” Drew was directly across from me. When he flushed, it covered his head, which was kind of adorable. He’d legit been a warrior, and I thought he was cute. There was no telling what horrors he’d seen. What those hands were capable of.“Enough with the dramatic pause.” I tried to adjust the bra and only succeeded in drawing attention to the situation. “Tell me what it is.”

“Okay.” He gulped. I made the warrior nervous. “We can’t stop thinking about you.”

What?

“What does that mean?” I’d had plenty of guys adorably stumble over telling me about their feelings, but this was my first experience with a plural pronoun. It was still entirely possible I was reading this all wrong. But from the way Drew’s gaze hadn’t left mine, it seemed rude to survey the table to see what the rest of we was thinking. I could feel their gazes on me.

“We busted Harvey’s balls because he had a crush on you.” Garrett’s voice was low. Harvey? Really? But he didn’t talk. “The more we gave him shit, the more we realized we all felt the same way. So we started making up stories about what we’d do if we got the chance. And we kept trying to top each other, which one of us would fuck you best.”

I couldn’t speak. All this time, I’d been sitting in my lonely suite identical to this one, having the very same thoughts. It was overwhelming to realize that not one but four men had been fantasizing about me. I wouldn’t be able to catch my breath for the rest of the movie.

“Did Garrett make things weird?” Ethan asked, whacking Garrett in the back of the head. “Because if he did, we can pretend we don’t want to fuck you.”

There were two ways I could handle this situation—walk out of the room in a huff like I thought the idea was disgusting. Or I could stay and find out what this all meant.

Problem was, I didn’t think it was a horrible idea. One sinful night could be what I needed to get through this movie. These guys took risks on a daily basis, and I’d said I wanted to be one of them.

“No, he didn’t make things weird.” The words shook as I spoke. “Tell me some of these stories.”

No turning back now…

“We could do that.” Ethan stood and circled the table so he stood behind me. His hands landed on my shoulders, and my body tensed under his touch. He let go immediately. “Or we could show you.”

Short Excerpt:

He massaged the tender skin on my ass, running his hands up to my lower back and down my thighs. I concentrated on the way his touch felt, how pretty the snow was, and how much I felt like the woman I always wanted to be when I was with him.

Could I make this last? Or would it melt away, like the snow?

Review – Skin Deep (Station Seventeen #1) by Kimberly Kincaid

Goodreads Review

 

 

Where there’s smoke…

For firefighter Kellan Walker, checking his emotions at the door doesn’t just keep him on the level. It keeps him alive. A gut-wrenching find at the scene of a blaze threatens to blow his ironclad composure, but when the detective assigned to the case is the same woman who put his sister’s life at risk three months ago, all bets for Kellan being calm, cool, or collected are definitely off.

There’s bound to be fire…

Keeping people safe is Isabella Moreno’s number one priority, no matter how tough the case. Working without solid leads and with the gorgeous, broody firefighter who believes she’s responsible for endangering his sister on a previous case isn’t ideal. But someone is hurting women in the here-and-now. Isabella will do whatever it takes to find justice.

As Kellan and Isabella reluctantly team up to catch a criminal, they realize they have more in common than they’d ever imagined. With every move, the stakes grow higher and the passion sizzles hotter, but can they race against the clock and the odds to catch a killer? Or will they lose their hearts—and their lives?

This is first book in the series by Ms. Kincaid and it starts with a bang. It’s been a long time since I read a book with a fire fighter and it was about time that I got round to reading one again. It’s just I’m picky. 

Kellan Walker a firefighter in Remington with Station Seventeen with the RFD. A former army ranger more specifically a sniper He’s been compartmentalizing things since his tours overseas. His emotions start to go a haywire when a certain RPD cop is around. Kellan can hold a mean grudge against said cop. 

Isabella Moreno is a tough as nails cop. She is totally bad arse and a strong female MC. For months Isabella has had to put up with Kellan’s grudge which isn’t justifiable. What happened to Kylie Kellan’s sister isn’t her fault. For the last couple of months they have managed to avoid one another until a disturbing case brings them together.  

After putting a fire out, Kellan stumbles across some photos that point to a prostitution ring and they handed over to the thirty third precinct where Moreno works. Their first meeting is chilly, very chilly that is until Moreno comes around and asks for another walk through, through the burnt down house. 

Kellan doesn’t want to help her at first but then caves.

 

Although they have a rocky start that doesn’t dampen the chemistry that they have together and what I love is that they didn’t act on it straight away. After the elephant in the room that was between them was taken care of did they start a relationship. A physical one to begin with but emotions soon got involved. I love them together they have some similarities between them but also enough differences to make what they have. The sex was sizzling, strong attraction and well I want meself a firefighter.  

The story plot progresses naturally and all the loose ends are tied up. Although overall fast paced it did drag in some places that is why I could only give it 4 stars.  

But there is also superb character development. Isabella goes from being closed off to trusting specific people in her life. After she lost her cousin to a tragic event she has been living on the outskirts so that no one can get close to her.  

Kellan has to deal with the emotions he isn’t sticking to anymore and well we see how he has a tough time but he openly accepts his feelings for Isabella.  

I loved the gender reversal where Isabella saves the day. 

The writing style is completely different to the book I read before that the transition was pretty easy though. Engaging, captivating and worth a read.

 

We all have auto buy authors. Over the last year or so, two of my auto buys have been dropped due to cookie cutter romances and well repetitive stories/plots and characters.

Getting to the actual point here is that Ms. Kincaid seems to suit me for an auto buy. I will most certainly be checking out her other books in the future. Just still have a lot of books to read beforehand.
