ARC Review - Private Wolf by TL Reeve!


BLURB:

Shawn Blu, tracker and private investigator, has come home. As a pack tracker, he’s ready to defend Los Lobos and use his contacts to find pack members and bring them back into the fold. So, when Miss Fern, his aunt, asks him to find Brienne Talbert, he’s happy to help out. What he isn’t expecting is to find his mate.

Brienne left home at sixteen, knowing she’d return to the Black Hills and Los Lobos one day. As it stands, in six months she’ll graduate with her master’s degree and there’s no way anyone will stop her now. However, when the hunky slab of wolf Shawn Blu shows up with a tempting offer—a week with her pack, no strings attached—she’s willing to reconsider her harsh stance about not going home.

When one weekend turns into a mating she hadn’t planned on, will she be able to leave it all behind and return to school, or will the call of her pack be too much to turn her back on?

MY REVIEW:

Private Wolf was a lot of fun and full of sexiness! I loved that we get some meddling relatives that seem to be into matchmaking and that made me smile. Brienne and Shawn were a fantastic combustible couple too! The moment they meet back up, I felt things heat up and get hot. But when they finally make love, DAMN! I felt like the pages just caught on fire. I loved the intensity of the mating and the coaxing and seduction that came along with it. TL Reeve knows how to weave a story full of fantastic paranormal activity and smoking scenes full of passion and fire. Her characters are always entertaining and full of spirit while the romance is a guarantee to win you over.

I think I can say that Private Wolf is my new favorite in the Black Hills Wolves series! Shawn is so handsome and full of charm and pure alpha he nearly makes me swoon while Brienne is a combination of sweet and sassy that makes me wish she was real so I can befriend her. She holds an innocence that I can relate to as well as a hidden sensuality that is hard to ignore. 

I give Private Wolf a HOWLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I loved this book from start to finish and I am already anticipating the next one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND those that love a good paranormal romance, to pick up this book and prepare for a great read!

Synopsis
No man has ever tempted Melina Blackwood to break her rules about getting involved with warlocks. At least, that was the case before meeting Trevor Dupree—a warlock who would need an accountant to figure out how many witches he’s been with. Trevor infuriates her, confuses her, but most of all, he makes her long for his touch. Turning him down wasn’t easy the first time, and she’s not sure she can resist the temptation now that Trevor is willing to do anything to make her his.
Trevor Dupree has been infatuated with far too many witches, believing every witch he’s dated had the potential to be the one he’d spend the rest of his life with. Melina Blackwood changed all of that, but the irritating witch not only turned him down, she practically filed a restraining order to keep him away. Six months later, she’s still the only witch he wants, and he has no intention of letting her walk away again.
One woman can prevent Melina and Trevor from finding their happily ever after. Her obsession with Trevor will drive her to do whatever it takes to possess him.

Excerpt 
 Talk? We needed to talk? My whole body was on fire, and he wanted to talk? My brain finally caught up with what we were doing, and I pushed him away. “Get me off. Ugh! I mean, get off of me,” I stammered, taking several steps back. Rather than looking angry at my bitchy attitude, Trevor’s lips curled into a cocky grin. “Don’t worry. Once we’re done talking, I’ll get you off at least a dozen times.” “No getting off!” I snapped. “Then you want me back on you?” he feigned confusion. “Save your man-whore charm for some other witch.” I accompanied my words with a scathing glare. “You are not seducing me, and you are certainly not getting me off today.” Trevor chuckled. “I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but if I hadn’t decided to slow things down, my tongue would already be between your legs, making you scream my name.” “Well, this has been a nice talk,” I told him, grabbing my purse and shoes before heading to the door. As my hand reached for the knob, Trevor pressed a palm against the door and leaned into my body, caging me in. His warm breath caressed my ear, making me shudder and drop my purse and shoes. “I make you nervous,” Trevor said softly. “You’re afraid to be alone with me, afraid to talk about what you feel for me. You’re afraid to admit how much you want me.” He was right, but that’s not what I said. “Could you stop pressing your dick against my back?” I hissed. “There’s my bitchy Melina,” he murmured against my ear. “I’ve missed that about you.” “You’ve missed me being bitchy?” I asked with a laugh, trying hard not to lift up onto my tiptoes and press against Trevor’s erection. “It’s like foreplay with you. You’re acting like a bitch because being near me turns you on, and it makes you want me more.” The sensation of Trevor’s hot breath against the back of my neck had me fighting back a moan. I had to stay strong because I knew Trevor was waiting for any weakness he could pounce on. Instead of moaning, I snorted. “I’m acting like a bitch because I don’t like being manhandled by some asshole man-whore warlock.” Trevor chuckled again, and I wanted to hate that sound. I knew if I turned around, I’d find some annoyingly arrogant smirk on his face. What pissed me off most was that I loved that smirk. I loved all the naughty things it did to my body. “You think I’m a man-whore, Melina?” he asked. “That is the term for a man who fucks any woman who’ll spread her legs, right?” I asked, being intentionally crude to remind myself that I was just a piece of ass Trevor couldn’t have. I was nothing more than the woman who’d turned him down. The problem with my argument was that if Trevor were really a man-whore who was only after me because I’d turned him down, I might have given in months ago. I was not the romantic type, waiting for Mr. Right to come along and sweep me off my feet. While there were many reasons I couldn’t get involved with a warlock, I liked sex, and I had no doubt Trevor knew what he was doing. A night with Trevor would undoubtedly be phenomenal, but Trevor Dupree didn’t do one-night stands; he did relationships, ones that ended about two weeks after they started. Trevor wasn’t chasing after me because he wanted to fuck me; Trevor believed I could be his happily ever after. That thought was depressingly laughable. I wasn’t anyone’s happily ever after.


MY REVIEW:

HOLY HOT TAMALE! Shamelessly Spellbound, the second book in Cassandra Lawson's absolutely irresistible Spells That Bind series, is HOT HOT HOT! I mean I had to have a fan and ICE WATER for the majority of the book. Trevor and Melina blew up my ereader...ok they didn't blow it up, but I swear they definitely made it heat up. I was worried it was going to catch on fire. To say Trevor and Melina had intense chemistry, is putting it lightly. I loved their passion for each other. Melina is tough, sassy, sexy, curvy, and her take charge attitude pleased me. Trevor is outrageously flirty, sexy, dominant, and oh so possessive. I loved how he was with Mr. Whiskers and I got a real kick out of him being a condor.

I laughed, I bit my lip, I was on the edge of my seat, and I had many hot flashes thanks to all the sexy scenes that seemed non-stop. Miss Lawson's Spells That Bind series is my absolute FAVORITE series. The covers are always amazing and sexy, and the plot always catches my attention with a nice steady pace that flows with the story. I always loved the writing and the characters are a guarantee to be a hit with me. In this case, Trevor and Melina (ok, and Mr. Whiskers) are truly fantastic and are probably my favorite. They make a perfect match.

Shamelessly Spellbound gets a SINFULLY FUN FIVE SHOOTING STARS! It took my breath away and the delicious scenes had me squirming. Loved this book and I most assuredly think its a MUST BUY THIS SECOND book.

Netgalley ARC Review - Wicked Bond by Sawyer Bennett!


BLURB:

Bridger Payne is an enigma that no one can figure out. Wise beyond his years, eerily intuitive and sexy as hell, every woman in The Silo wants him.
None can have him.
Not the real man, anyway.
He might wield the lash for you if you ask prettily, but he’ll get no gratification from it. He’ll definitely make you scream, but he won’t think twice about you when he walks away.
Bridger carries the darkest of secrets He’s filled with too much pain.
He’s utterly untouchable.
Until she came along.

MY REVIEW:

DAMN, Wicked Bond had me in tears, smiling and squirming. This story had my emotions all over the place, and yet, I wouldn't have it any other way. I loved how suspenseful and dangerous some of the story was, and how resilient both Bridger and Maggie were with their pasts. Even though there was a lot of super HOT scenes, I was amazingly touched how our hero Bridger overcame his past to let Maggie into his heart. It took a bit of time, but with Maggie's incredible strong character, she manages to get Bridger to open up to a relationship. And Bridger shows Maggie what making love, with kink, can be like, and oh boy, that was hotter and sexier then I could of imagined!

This story might have a few triggers for some people. But the author did such an amazing job with writing the scenes and plot and how the characters overcame everything that came their way throughout the story. It truly is a great story.

Wicked Bond easily gets a SMOLDERING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! It is both emotional and sweet with that delectable kink we come to know and love with a one of Sawyer Bennett's Wicked Horse books. DEFINITELY A MUST READ!

Review - Foolish Expectations by Alison Bliss!



BLURB:

Forever is the last thing they expected… 

Lawyer Nash Sutherland encounters a spirited young woman with an untrusting nature in a Texas roadside bar. She’s as sexy as she is surly, and their undeniable attraction leads them to one night of pleasure…and a fateful condom mishap. By morning, the striking beauty has disappeared, but he can’t get her out of his head. She’s everything he wasn’t looking for, but now must find. 

After one night of passion, Bailey Hobbs finds herself in an unexpected predicament. And the cause of it happens to be the persistent man standing in her living room, proposing a solution: marriage. She may be pregnant with Nash’s child, but after her past with a cheating ex, she refuses to put her faith in another man. But try telling that to a guy who argues for a living. 

The only thing bigger than his…Stetson…is his ego, and Bailey knows firsthand how hard it is to resist Nash when he wants something. But she’s determined to keep him at an emotionally safe distance…one he refuses to allow. Because if Nash can’t get her to risk her heart once more, it will cost them the one thing that matters most.

MY REVIEW:

SOOOOOO GOOD! Foolish Expectations was WONDERFUL. I LOVED Nash and Bailey's story. Sexy, sizzling, sigh-worthy, and laugh-out loud fun, this book HAD IT ALL! I didn't think this book could top Playing With Fire and sexy Cowboy, but I should of learned. I fell for Nash the moment he turned on the charm to Bailey. Even when she is in full prickly, bitchy mode, he clashes through her walls and their chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS HOT! 

This story had me turning page after page. I found myself putting the book down and taking a break, even though I DID NOT WANT TO just to make it last a bit longer. I am officially HOOKED on Alison Bliss's stories and I am truly excited and anticipating her newest book, Size Matters. 

Foolish Expectations is fun, super sexy, with wonderful characters and sizzling romance. I give this book a GLORIOUS FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I. FREAKING. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. Keep them coming Miss Bliss...PLEASE!

Netgalley ARC Review - Sparking The Fire by Kate Meader!





BLURB:

Actor Molly Cade, America’s fallen sweetheart, finally has her shot at a Hollywood comeback with a dramatic new role as a tough-as-nails firefighter that promises to propel her back to the big time and restore her self-respect.


Wyatt Fox, resident daredevil at Engine Co. 6, needs a low-key job to keep him busy while he recovers from his latest rescue stunt. Consulting on a local movie shoot should add just enough spark to his day. Especially when in struts Molly Cade: the woman who worked his heart over good, and then left him in the Windy City dust.

Their story is straight out of a script: irrepressible, spunky heroine meets taciturn, smoldering hero. But these two refuse to be typecast, and when the embers of an old love are stoked, someone is bound to get burned…


MY REVIEW:

Yet again, Kate Meader created a book that is fun, sassy, laugh-out loud witty and tempting as heck! This Hot In Chicago series is one of my favs! I love the laughs, the sexy times, the sizzling romance, and the very interesting characters. Sparking The Fire was even hotter and more fun then the last book and I just can't help but to shout out to the world about it!

Sparking The Fire is a real page-turner. The witty dialogue and the scorching scenes will leave you absolutely BEGGING for the next one. I am in LUST with sexy Wyatt. Sexy, smoldering with sexuality and that incredible body, had me warmed up and ready for HIS fire in no time. Molly is full of spunk, a great actress, and is so sassy and sweet all rolled into a bombshell of a body. When Wyatt and Molly come together its beautiful and full of spark.

Sparking The Fire gets a SMOKING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Come get the book that will have you giggling and sighing with pleasure all at once.

Netgalley ARC Review - A Sure Thing by Marie Harte!



BLURB:

Meet the Donnigans
With the eldest Donnigan brothers adjusting to civilian life, their younger sister constantly in trouble, and their little brother clueless about life in general, falling in love is the last thing on anyone's mind...

Can this Bossy Badass Marine...
The Marine Corps was everything Landon Donnigan ever wanted in life...until a bullet sent him home with a medical discharge. Teaching a self-defense class at the gym is old-hat for a marine, but when he meets sexy Ava Rosenthal, his combat skills are useless for protecting his heart.

Be her Mr. Right? 
Ava can take care of herself and likes quiet, bookish men-not muscular warriors who think women need to be coddled. But Landon is more than he seems, and when they come together, the results are explosive.


MY REVIEW:
Sassy, fun, witty, sexy...A Sure Thing by Marie Harte entertained and delighted me! The first thing that popped out for me was this gorgeous cover. The colors are eye-catching and the couple in such a sexy position just urges a romance reader to dive right in. And then its the incredible characters. Fun, charming, incredibly sassy, they make you laugh and sigh. This story is a definite SURE THING!

I loved how exhilarating and sweet the romance and chemistry was. The love scenes are delicious and the plot was well written. I just LOVED this story! Marie Harte is a terrific writer of romance and definitely keeps me coming back for more.

A Sure Thing gets a SPIRITED FOUR SHOOTING STARS! Its entertaining and the romance sizzles and its pure fun.
