ARC Review - Protecting Maya by Fifi Flowers!


Logan “Shark” Hammond, forced into an early retirement and leaving his SEAL team behind, isn’t ready to walk away from serving those in need.

Maya Bexley, a strong independent actress, is being forced by her agent and the studio producing her latest film to keep quiet about being terrorized.

When Logan is assigned to protect Maya, he quickly earns her trust and vows to do whatever it takes to allow her to live in peace—with him, if he has anything to say about it.


I thought I liked Fifi Flowers work before, but after reading Protecting Maya and getting something so different than what she usually writes made me LOVE her even more! Everyone who knows me knows I LOOOOVE Susan Stoker and her fabulous Kindle World. Each author so far that have written in her world has done such a great job with there stories. Fifi Flowers did an even better job I think though because her usual work is more on the fun, light, and sexy ride, and this one had more heart pounding suspense with a delectable hero and a heroine who wasn't at all what I expected her to be like considering her career. 

Protecting Maya was really lively, sexy, romantic with a stunning plot that I couldn't get enough of. Its not overly long, nor overly short read. It was just right for the kindle world. There is plenty of action to go along with the sizzling hot romance that left me craving more. Well done!


ARC Review - Savage Prince by Meghan March!


Who knew things could get even darker and dirtier in New Orleans? New York Times bestselling author Meghan March introduces the Savage Prince of the city, the man you never want to meet. 

* * *
I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own.
I knew I shouldn’t touch her, but it didn’t stop me. 
Didn’t stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third.  
My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn’t. 
But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I’m nowhere near ready to quit her yet.
I’ll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness.
Hopefully it doesn’t kill us both. 

* * *
Savage Prince is book one of the Savage Trilogy, set in the same world as Ruthless King, however you do not need to read the Mount Trilogy to devour this scandalously hot new trilogy.


Savage Prince is DELIRIOUSLY HOT you will spontaneously orgasm and your heart will feel like its breaking free from your chest and your legs will feel like jelly. How could anyone resist that kind of HOTNESS? You can't, its THAT simple! This is a decadently dark, sinfully seductive and you WILL need several changes of panties, GUARAN-FREAKING-TEED romance! And the ending, my god, that ending will leave your mouth gaping open and your eyes popped out of your head. I DESPERATELY NEED Iron Princess now.

I thought I knew what I was getting after reading Miss March's Mount Trilogy, but after reading Savage Prince I apparently haven't seen ANYTHING yet! Savage Prince WILL BLOW. YOUR. EVER. LOVING. MIND. This is the kind of romance I didn't even know existed until Meghan March. I am serious, its COMPLETELY HYPNOTIZING! There is one deliciously mysterious anti-hero in this book that any red-blooded woman would fall to her knees for and BEG him to take her ANY way he desired. 

I am on a never ending high from this incredible book that I DON'T want to come down from. BEST. FEELING. EVER.  This book RIGHT HERE gets a ridiculously good, like THE BEST SEX OF YOUR LIFE GOOD TEN BOLD, BRIGHT, SHINNING STARS!

Only You, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is LIVE!


Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I've seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall-a different one every time-and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I'm looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there's no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we're watching 007 flicks together, and I'll admit-he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says "I'll come back for her" and he begs me for help, I can't turn him down.
But it's a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there's a chance for us.
I don't want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.


A realistically delicious, tempting, sexy, funny read from Malanie Harlow! Only You had me in stitches at times, yet there were some serious, heartfelt, realistic moments that had my heart galloping at a fast rate, and making me feel all warm and gooey inside and out. This romance had such a crazy fun mix of heart, humor, and heat that it was impossible to put down. I laughed, I sighed, I fell in love! Watching a man who seemed so tough and strong turn into a normal human when it came to a baby was eye opening. Its how I feel most of us, whether or not we are men or women, feel when it comes to a baby. We are scared. But watching Nate take care of his child had my heart melting. And when he gets help from his neighbor/friend, and a relationship starts to bloom, it made the story so much more appealing and charming. 

I am in awe over Only You! It was sexy fun, sweet and inspiring. And to watch a man fall for his little one with every little change or bottle feeding made me feel all...gooey. I LOVED IT! I give this book a SPECTACULARLY DONE FIVE SHOOTING STARS!

“So did you mean what you said last night? About me?” He grimaced, his eyes closing briefly. “I’m sorry about that. I shouldn’t have said it.” “But you think it, right? That I’m a little girl living in a fantasy world?” “No.” He put a hand on my shoulder. “I think you’re an optimist. I think you see good in people they don’t even see themselves. You build people up—especially me.” “You?” I laughed a little. “You don’t need me to build you up.” “Hell yes, I do. You think I’d have been able to handle this whole fatherhood bombshell if you hadn’t been here? If you’d said, ‘That’s what you get for fucking around, asshole. Good luck.’ I shook my head, a strand of hair coming loose from my bun. “I’d never have done that.” “I know.” He tucked the strand behind my ear and moved his hand to the back of my neck. His eyes dropped to my lips. “But I would have deserved it.” I held my breath. Things seemed to be happening in slow motion. His forehead came to rest on mine. And then our noses touched. Our eyes closed. An eternity passed, his lips a whisper from mine. Either one of us could have initiated a kiss. A slight lift of my chin. A little drop of his head. The question—will we or won’t we?—hung there between us, even as his closed lips brushed mine, eyelash soft. I wanted nothing more than to wrap my arms around his neck and fit my body flush against his, but my wrists lay inert on the edge of the sink. Suddenly he spoke, his breath warm against my mouth. “You know that dream you have, the one where you really want to do something, you’re desperate to do something, but you’re paralyzed?” “Yes,” I whispered. “I think I’m having that dream right now.” “Me too.” And then I felt it, the gentle pressure at the back of my neck, pulling my head toward him. It was all I needed. Our mouths came together firmly this time, our lips opening, and I angled my body toward his, throwing my arms around his neck. His hands explored my back while his tongue explored my mouth, and he backed me into the corner, his hips pinning mine against the hard stone counter. He kissed with a fervor and intensity that surprised me, his mouth traveling down my neck, his fingers threading through my hair, pulling the pins loose, his body giving off heat that mine hungrily absorbed. I wanted to get closer to him, wished I could feel his skin against mine. I rose up on tiptoe to press against him, my back arching to fit the question mark curve of his body. He felt big and strong and reassuring, exactly how I wanted him to feel. I wasn’t even sure what it was I wanted reassurance about… My desirability? Our chemistry? Something new and different happening between us? He swept his lips to the other side of my throat, a necklace of soft, insistent kisses that warmed my blood. When his mouth returned to mine, the kiss grew hot and frantic. He reached down and hiked the hem of my skirt to my waist, and I immediately jumped up, wrapping my legs around him. His hands moved under my ass and he carried me like that into the living room, never lifting his mouth off mine. When he reached the couch, he knelt on it and tipped me backward, stripping off his shirt and stretching out above me. My hands moved lightning fast over hot skin, solid muscle. Chest and arms and back—I couldn’t get enough. His hand stole beneath the T-shirt I wore and I arched my back so he could reach underneath me and unclasp my bra, then moaned softly at the feel of his palm over my breasts. Moving down, he shoved the shirt and bra up to my neck and put his mouth on me, his lips, his tongue, his teeth, my nipples hardening into tight little peaks that begged to be licked, sucked, teased, tortured. What are we doing? What are we doing? What are we doing? screamed a voice in my head. I ignored it, hooking my arms beneath his and pulling him up so I could kiss him again. I didn’t care what we were doing. It felt way too good to stop.

"Whatever, just hand me what you have, and I'll try it all on." She reaches for the huge pile from Tara's hands. "Happy now?" "Yep. Now get your cute butt into that fitting room and model everything for me." With a huff, Tinley throws the pile of clothes over her shoulder and trudges her way over. She doesn't see an employee in sight when the rooms come into view and hopes she doesn't need a key to get in. She'd rather not have to drag herself all over the store with this ridiculous pile of clothing. She tries the first door in front of her, and of course, it's locked. The doors go all the way to the floor, so there's no way she can slide her body underneath even if she wanted to. She starts to walk back out into the store when she spots a door slightly ajar at the end of the hallway. She shuffles past all the other rooms and pushes the door wide open. For a split second, she has that awkward panic moment-her feet glued to their spot on the floor and a look of horror on her face. She can't look away, but what's in front of her is absolutely terrifying. The woman screams, which finally pulls Tinley out of her daze. She slams the door shut, the clothes tumble from her hands, and she hightails it out of there. She doesn't even stop to tell Tara she's leaving as she speed walks by her. The only thing on her mind is getting out of this store as fast as humanly possible without making a scene. As soon as Tinley steps foot out of the store, someone pulls on her arm and whips her around. "What just happened? Why did you leave?"

Marriage Of Inconvenience Blog Tour Stop with ARC Review!


Marriage of Inconvenience, an all new romantic comedy standalone in the USA Today bestselling, Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid, is available NOW!

MOI copy

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.
Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?


My VERY first Penny Reid story and I CHERISHED THE HECK OUT OF IT! SOOOO fun, SOOOO SEXY, SOOOO SWEET, this is one romantic comedy that is a MUST READ, MUST HAVE, MUST OWN book! I fell in absolute love with Kat and Dan. Their was fascinating chemistry, fantastic banter, and undeniable charm. I laughed, I got swept away on a tidal wave of pure entertainment and sizzling romance. I can't believe I haven't read a Penny Reid book until now. I am now kicking myself and NEEDING to read more books by this talented, fun, sassy author. 

Marriage Of Inconvenience made me smile. I felt a fabulous connection between the Dan and Kat. There were moments of pure heart and moments of pure lust. The mix of humor and sweet, all consuming love was exactly what I craved. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH I WANT TO SCREAM IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!


Staring at his chin, because I couldn’t quite lift my eyes any higher, I cleared my throat. “Should we get ready for bed?” “Sure,” he said, his voice a rumble. Dan’s eyes were on me, I felt the weight of them. My hands came to the hem of my skirt and I hesitated, feeling winded for some reason. Sneaking a glance at him, I immediately wished I hadn’t. His gaze was watchful, but it was also unmistakably hot in a way that seemed at once both avaricious and accusatory. The vice tightened around my lungs. Kiss him! Just freaking kiss him! You want numbered steps? Fine. You kiss him- check. He kisses you back- check. Then you make out- check. Check the boxes. I licked my lips, balling my hands into fists at my sides again, preparing to follow my hasty list. But then he said, “Undress me.” My breath caught. On instinct, my eyes lifted and collided with his in much the same way our bodies had collided at the top of the stairs just moments ago. Jarring. Startling. Thrilling. This time I couldn’t look away because this time I was falling. He made no move to catch me. “What? What did you say?” His eyes narrowed, which served only to increase the intensity of his gaze from smolder to inferno. “Take my clothes off.” I stared at him, licking my lips again, and shaking my head. That wasn’t one of my steps. Lifting my chin, I moved to kiss him. He leaned to the side, evading me even as his eyes dropped to my mouth. “Take off my shirt and I’ll give you a kiss.” He’d used his naughty-secret voice. An explosion of heat erupted in my belly, and now I was hot all over. I couldn’t figure out if the heat was embarrassment or arousal or both. He didn’t give me a chance to figure it out. His hands lifted and he undid his cuffs; then they moved to the top button of his shirt. “You better take over,” he said darkly, “or else you’re not getting that kiss.”

ARC Review - Guardian's Bond by Rhenna Morgan!


For decades, he’s been alone.
Now, she’s here. His fated mate.
His to win. To protect. 
To provide for and pleasure. 

Priest Rahandras has lived with the darkness trapped inside himself for years. Betrayed by his own brother and forced to watch his clan’s brutal annihilation, the only thing Priest wants more than to escape the curse that haunts him—as both man and beast—is to rebuild.

Until the mate he’s longed for walks into his life with an elder from his past. She’s everything he’s wished for, and the key to the clan’s very survival.

Kateri Falsen is a woman of logic and facts. While Priest’s cat can sense her arousal, telling her they’re fated won’t be enough. He’ll have to show her his love: with his words, with his actions, and with his body.

Protecting Kateri from the evil trapped inside him is paramount. But when lost clan members are systematically murdered, he’ll have to choose between exposing his mate to his black magic, or risking her as the next victim.

ARC Review - Dragon VIP: Pyrochlore by Starla Night!


Smokin’ hot dragon shifters have no idea what to do with these sassy Earth females — but claiming them as mates will change the universe!

Bad boy dragon shifter Pyrochlore “Pyro” Onyx is the acting CEO of the Onyx Corporation — and for the smokin’ hot billionaire playboy, it definitely feels like an act. He has two weeks to save his family’s company from destruction and himself from an unwanted marriage to the Empress of his home planet, Draconis. 

When he catches sweet, curvy Amy stalking his every move, a new feeling wars with his old cynicism. No matter the species, females want Pyro for only one thing. And it isn’t true love or faithfulness. 

Super responsible second-grade teacher Amy should never have given in to her secret fantasies to stalk the gorgeous dragon, but in his presence, her self-control just snaps. And although he calls her naive, she’s not so innocent that she doesn’t know what she wants. Playing with the fiery male risks getting burned, but as dark forces gather, she could be his only salvation. 

This is a complete novel with a happy ending! It features steamy dragon shifter love scenes and a passionate teacher who can teach the bad boy a thing or two. Must love dragons! 


I thought I enjoyed Mal's story, but Pyro kicked Mal right out of the #1 spot in a flurry of scales and fire! I got swept away by Pyro's seductive charm, his fiery passion, the way he sometimes lets his temper take control and the way he seemed to take charge and bring Amy such pleasure and happiness. 

Starla Night's Dragon VIP series has taken over me in the VERY BEST WAY! This series is magical, has great sci-fy  quality and some of the most gloriously delicious scenes that just seem to....pop for me. The way Amy seemed to have her eye on Pyro and the way he approaches her had my heart rate accelerating and my knees feeling all weak and gooey. And the way he is so persistent with her and seduces her kept me breathless. This romance is full of magic and is sexy, sweet, and irresistible. It has plenty of dragon adventure and just has so much great quality and is beautiful beyond words. I am already anticipating the next book in this series!
