Netgalley ARC Review - The SEAL's Rebel Librarian by Anne Calhoun!




BLURB:

The second in the Alpha Ops novella series that features an alpha Navy SEAL and the librarian who brings him to his knees.

Jack Powell never planned on leaving the Navy, but his final mission as a SEAL left him with a tremor and a bad case of nerves. He's home, taking some college classes and trying to figure out what comes next when he meets Erin Kent, a divorced college librarian with an adventurous bucket list and a mission to get her ex-husband's voice out of her head. Jack guides Erin through skydiving and buying the motorcycle of her dreams, blithely accepting Erin's promise that their relationship is purely temporary. But when Jack gets the chance to go back into the shadowy world of security contracting, can he convince Erin to break her word and join him on the adventure of a lifetime?


MY REVIEW:

The SEAL's Rebel Librarian was a wonderful novella! I liked Jack and Erin and thought the story was sweet and full of passion and is a very likable story. There is plenty of steamy moments, a great dialogue and perfect situations that stole my breath and had me biting my lips. A thoroughly entertaining and romantic story.

With this being a novella I can't say a whole lot about the story unless I want to give everything totally away, but what I will say is the writing is good, the sex delicious, and with a sexy alpha SEAL, and a surprisingly bad-ass librarian, this novella is one of those stories that is surprising and passionate.

The SEAL's Rebel Librarian by Anne Calhoun recieves a ROMANTIC FOUR SHOOTING STARS! A great read and a great author.

Netgalley ARC Review - Claiming Her SEAL by Kat Cantrell!



BLURB:

In Navy SEAL Dex Riley’s world, women fall into two categories: those who don’t ask questions and those who wish they hadn’t. He hides the darkness in his past, content to run an island adventure company in the Caribbean with members of his former SEAL team—until resort guest Emma Richardson targets him for a vacation fling. Her fresh innocence and insistence on seeing hero material in Dex where none exists makes him yearn to be the man she deserves. And that terrifies Dex more than any war zone he's ever faced, until he discovers Emma has demons of her own…


MY REVIEW:

Claiming Her SEAL wasn't as good as I first thought it would be. It had great potential, but it didn't live up to my expectations like I thought it would. The story was decent and the characters were pretty darn interesting, but the off again and on again affection and feelings Dex had going on with Emma put me off a bit. Plus I found the same things being repeated a lot during the first several chapters. This had great potential. I loved the blurb. It had me curious to the romance and plot, but the actual story lacked...character. At least to me. And I REALLY wanted to like the story. The cover was very gorgeous and I love a story with a sexy SEAL. I do hope though that other readers won't be put off by the book just by one review. I know this story will have others wanting another taste. This book just wasn't for me.

I am only going to give this book a TWO AND A HALF STARS! I did not find it as passionate, or sexy, or as good as I was hoping.

Netgalley ARC Review - Dirty (Dive Bar 1) by Kylie Scott!



BLURB:

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn't know whether to burn down the church or sit and cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it's with his best man is another thing all together. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she'd marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she already tried Mr. Right and discovered he's all wrong-maybe it's time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what's wrong with getting dirty?



MY REVIEW:

OMG how this book ROCKED! Kylie Scott amazed me once again. This time with a NEW spin off series, Dive Bar! Dirty has the fun wit we come to enjoy with Miss Scott's stories along with the phenomenal characters and drama that draws us in. I laughed, I cried, I had to excuse myself to take a cool shower with some of the juicy sex! Vaughan is a sexy, moody, yet sweet man that completely and irrevocably captured my heart and weakened my knees. I loved his rough edges, his sexy grin, and his bedroom eyes. Lydia is one of my most favored characters of this year. Not only is she fun, a bit outrageous, and knows how to give as good as she gets, but she is just like me....beautifully curvy! I ADORE a curvy heroine! Vaughan and Lydia are wonderful together. The sexual tension between them, you could cut with a knife. They know how to push each other just enough to get the other out of their bad moods, and they have SO MUCH FUN! I freaking LOVED THIS BOOK!

Dirty is going to be flying off the shelves....or into readers reading devices once they get a load of this awesomeness. Not once did this book bore me or had me rolling my eyes. I was practically glued to my ereader. Nibbling my lip, fanning myself, and I couldn't stop smiling or giggling. The drama on both sides were sometimes outrageous (in a surprisingly fun way) and totally eye opening. And the sex.....WOWZA! Steamy, succulent, and unbelievably satisfying. 

Dirty is the total package! I give this a FANTASTICALLY FUN FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I AM SO LOVING THIS NEW SERIES! Its written to perfection! Fans of Stage Dive, will be screaming for more.

MY REVIEW:

Her Adoring SEAL is riveting, sweet, passionate with splashes of suspense. The Midnight Delta Series is an absolutely addicting series with the VERY BEST kind of heroes and intelligent, sweet heroines. The writing is well, magnificent. At least to me it is. I enjoy a story that has me sighing in pleasure and biting my nails with the suspense. Even though I wouldn't say this story was erotic, the sweet, patient love-making that we see is just as engrossing and fits this storyline perfectly. Plus, its the kind of love-making that will have tears swimming in your eyes. Its beautiful, kind, and oh so enchanting. I want my VERY own Midnight SEAL!

I am impressed with the way Caitlyn O'Leary writes these SEAL books! I can't seem to get enough and want MORE like yesterday. She writes these stories that will guarantee readers will love them and keep them hooked on the characters and stories. She is an AMAZING author! The characters in this particular story are my favorites so far! Beth is an extraordinary woman with a past that left her emotionally scared of men. Jack is the one man who understands her and cares for her in a way that leaves us readers awed and wishing for our own 'Jack'.  Jack and Beth together fit perfectly. I LOVED THEM! 



Her Adoring SEAL gets a SWEET AND SIGH-WORTHY FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I am eagerly awaiting the next book and hope Miss Caitlyn doesn't keep us waiting for long. This book is going on the top of the list baby!

Can he keep her safe?   Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Goodreads   Exclusive Excerpt: They were going to kill her. Jack gripped his gun as he looked into the storage room. Griff was across the square in the bell tower, and Jack had just gotten word he found three of the other doctors and could take down their captors. Aiden and Dex were on other floors of the hospital looking for hostages and tangos. Their lieutenant was outside ready to give the command to Aiden to start taking out the targets. That left him in the basement to find this horror. The woman was on her knees, her shirt torn, breasts spilling out, and a face covered in blood and bruises. She had one arm wrapped around a man’s hips like a lover, her cheek pressed against his thigh, and her blonde hair tangled with his pubic hair. That’s where the farce ended. The tip of the knife she held was pressed against his balls, and Jack could see a trickle of blood. “Come closer and I will cut off his cock,” she said in raspy Spanish. “Kill her.” The man commanded to the three other men in the room. “Sir, the bullet could hit you.” “You’re two feet away. You can’t shoot straight? Kill the bitch!” The woman flinched, and the knife bit into the man’s tender flesh. He yowled. “Kill her now, she’s cutting me.” “You keep talking and threatening me and you’ll never father a child. Tell them to back off.” Jack admired her bravery, but what did she think she was going to accomplish? How in the hell did she think she was going to get out of this mess?

ARC Review - Bear Commitment by Marlie Monroe!



BLURB:

To protect her son, she must guard her heart. 

A fresh start…

Lila returned home to Pleasant Valley to give her half-shifter, half-human son a stable, loving home far away from the bad influences in the city. With her parents’ guidance, she hopes to safely guide her son through puberty and his first volatile transition from boy to beast. 

An animal instinct…

Grizzly shifter Stuart Watson wasn’t looking for love while campaigning for reelection as county sheriff. However, there was no denying he’d met his match after his first encounter with Lila. The feisty brunette is everything he ever wanted in a woman. All he has to do is convince his reluctant mate and her rebellious son to give him a chance to prove his worth.

A love worth risking it all…

Before Stuart can stake his claim, Lila’s life is endangered by the person she loves most. He races to rescue his mate, determined to save the day and safeguard their future.


MY REVIEW:

ANOTHER FREAKING OUTSTANDING READ IN MARLIE MONROE'S PLEASANT VALLEY SHIFTER SERIES! Bear Commitment is the second installment in Miss Monroe's Shifter Series and is amazingly good. The story runs smoothly and Stuart and Lila are combustible together. Their passion is fiery and SO. DANG. HOT. I loved how intense and patient and wonderful Stuart is. Lila is perfectly saucy and feisty. These two made the perfect couple!

I am excited to see what else Miss Monroe will bring to us in future stories. This series is one of my top favorite new series. I love everything about this story. The characters, the sizzling romance, and the mild suspense and action keeps me on the edge and eager for more. 

SIZZLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS is what I give Bear Commitment. Its one of those books with a sexy cover, exciting blurb, and fantastic plot! Keep them coming Miss Monroe...keep them coming! 

Netgalley ARC Review - Rocked By Love by Christine Warren!



BLURB:

Bestselling author Christine Warren returns to the secret world of gargoyles-where legends come alive, and lovers are caught between a rock and a hard place...

Kylie Kramer knows that she's putting her life in danger when she decides to investigate her friend's mysterious death. What she doesn't know is that she's being watched over by a powerful protector. A legend in stone who has defended humanity throughout the ages. A rock-hard savior who swoops down from the sky, scoops Kylie into his impossibly strong arms, and draws her into a world that no mortal woman can imagine...or resist.

ROCKED BY LOVE

As the strongest of the gargoyles, Dag is sworn to destroy the demons that threaten Kylie's world before returning to his stony slumber. But the burning desire she ignites in him is even harder to fight-an all-consuming force that, once unleashed, can never be tamed. As their passion grows, so do the ranks of a demonic army plotting to take over the earth. When the ultimate battle begins, Dag and Kylie must face some demons of their own-to carve out a love that's stronger than time...



MY REVIEW:

Rocked By Love is a fun-filled, humorous, flirty read with a splendid set of characters and a ridiculously good plot. I loved the gargoyles elements. Gargoyles fascinate me and to see them in this kind of light in a romance excited and thrilled me. There was a sexy old world accent and attitude with Dag that was sexy as hell and charming. 

The sexual tension between Dag and Kylie simmered strongly. The passion was strong and delicious...just the way I like my romances! Another thing I liked was the action. It was nail-biting and had just the right amount of suspense to keep you on edge. Christine Warren is a brilliant author who puts together a fun and entertaining romance that is delightful with laugh out loud moments.

Rocked By Love gets a FUN AND ACTION-PACKED FIVE SHOOTING STARS.

ARC Review - The Layover by Silke Ming!



BLURB:

[Siren Classic Romance, HEA]
Alex Ponsonby walks onto a Singapore-bound flight and is immediately smitten by the blonde stewardess, Zola Kemper, who is the most junior of the crew. Ignored by the more senior crew members, she is ecstatic when the handsome Alex offers to show her around Singapore. A strange turn of events starting with a snow storm in Vancouver extends her time in Singapore from five to twelve days, allowing a relationship between the two to burst into bloom.
When he takes her to his office Christmas party, she meets his boss and former best friend Garrett Evans. To settle their differences, Garrett issues Alex an indecent proposal—one night with Zola and all is forgotten. But Alex has fallen in love with Zola. Can their relationship survive this pitfall?


MY REVIEW:

Exciting, sexy, erotica at its best with the sweet romance I crave. Silke Ming did it again, this time in her book, The Layover. I enjoy reading these types of romances because I am amazed at the quality of eroticism that I find in one of Silk Mings books. I never imagined before, that I would find these hot, but thanks to Miss Ming, I not only find them extremely H-O-T but wickedly delicious! 

Zola and Alex are amazing characters with wonderful personalities and wicked thoughts that fit each other to perfection. The plot fit the story too! It drew me in and had me eagerly turning the page. Truly exciting in more then one way. *Wink* 

The Layover gets a DIRTY, WICKED FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its one of the most erotic books so far of 2016! A. MUST. READ. BOOK.

Netgalley ARC Review - Romancing The Ranger by Jennie Marts!



BLURB:

Reese Hudson meant to destroy mementos from her last failed relationship, not burn down an outhouse and incur the wrath of a sexy park ranger. When the judge rejects her offer to pay for the structure and sentences her to rebuild it—with the hot ranger supervising—she embraces the challenge to take control of her life. 

Park ranger Wade Baker wants nothing to do with the rich city girl, no matter how tempting he finds her lush curves. She’s too much like his ex-fiancĂ©e, and if he’s learned anything, it’s that women like Reese don’t fit into his world. And he sure as hell wants no part of her big city life. 

Reese may not know a hammer from a screwdriver, but she’s working hard to prove she’s not just some pampered princess to be toyed with. And damn it if Wade doesn’t admire her tenacious spirit. If only they got along half as well outside the bedroom as they do in it, there might be a chance for them after all…


MY REVIEW:

What a sweet, fun, energetic romance! Romancing The Ranger by Jennie Marts is a book I really got into. Reese and Wade are stupendous characters. Fun and flirty, this book had me giggling and sighing happily. I loved the cover, the blurb intrigued me, and the story had me completely content. 

Romancing The Ranger has a lot of sizzling romance and a ton of energy that is super fun. The chemistry is off the charts hot and the plot is juicy and something I can picture happening in real life. I just generally enjoyed this book and am happy to say Jennie Marts is going on my list of "Look For" authors. 

A FLIRTY FOUR SHOOTING STARS FOR ROMANCING THE RANGER! Its a good time with mishaps, romance, and pure enjoyment.

18+ by #SebastianEX

My name is Matthew Weston. Don't call me anything else, because I won't respond. And if you think you can get away with whimpering ‘Matt’ while I have you tied to the bed, about to devour you, it'll end up being your loss.
Men like me don't talk about feelings. We just don't. 
What men like me do is pound. I pound the asphalt with my running shoes on morning runs. I pound a punching bag in the gym until my knuckles bleed. And when I need a release, I find a beautiful woman sprawled out on her bed, eagerly waiting for my cock, and pound her into oblivion. Yeah, that's me. I don't have feelings, and I don't do love. 
At least I didn't, until the night Ella walked into my office looking like a disgusting junky to interview for a position for The Onyx Club. 
She was like no one I'd ever met before. She was timid, reserved, and quite plain with her mousy brown hair and dirty clothes. Ella also had a dark and haunted gleam in her eye. A secret, a past she was desperate to conceal. 
And when she called me ‘Matt’ it didn't seem to bother me. 
She came into my life and turned it upside down. The only question is, can I screw her out of my system, or will my filthy desire for her keep her by my side?
