Netgalley ARC Review - Kiss Me That Way by Laura Trentham!


A river divides Cottonbloom in two: the upscale enclave on the Mississippi side and the rundown, rough and tumble side in Louisiana. They’re worlds apart—but nothing can build a bridge like love…

Cade Fournette never had it easy Cottonbloom. He stuck around long enough to raise his orphaned siblings and then hightailed it out West—and never looked back. Even though he’s made a success of himself in Seattle, Cade never lost the toughness and the angry edge that helped him survive down South. His only weak spot: the girl he left behind…

Monroe Kirby came from the wealthy side of town, but that didn’t protect her from her mother’s drinking—or her mother’s boyfriend. It was Cade who did that, on a long-ago hot September night, before he disappeared…along with a piece of her heart. Now Monroe is a physical therapist who can fight for herself, and it’s Cade who could use some conditioning when he makes an unexpected return back home. Will he and Monroe pick up where they left off and finally explore their mutual passion—or will the scars and secrets of the past divide them once more? 


Sweet, succulent, all-consuming, Kiss Me That Way just took my breath away and was the sweetest book I have read in a while. I loved the chemistry between Monroe and Cade. These two came from two different backgrounds but they were made for each other.

The story line was and is addicting. A young damsel in distress meets a rough young man who couldn't turn away. OMG, just beautiful and wonderful! I loved this book from the start to finish.  Laura Trentham did a fabulous job of writing a story with different characters that will have you eager to learn more about them and just generally falling in love with them.

Greer Karas has been mine since the first day I saw her.

I walked away because she deserved better than I could offer, but I always planned to come back and stake my claim when the time was right.

But true to form, Greer wasn't willing to wait. She threw down a challenge, and I’m meeting her head-on.

I’m not walking away this time because sometimes you have to fight dirty for love.

    Right now, I just want Cav. I might still want to kill him later, but not right this moment. I suck his finger into my mouth, laving it with my tongue and lips and dragging lightly down it with my teeth. As we hurtle down the runway, I make promises to him with my eyes. Take the restraints off or don’t; I’m still going to want you. Cav reaches out with his other hand and cups my breast, covered only by the soft material of my thin T-shirt. Chill bumps prickle along my skin when his fingers close around my nipple and twist. A moan escapes my lips, and I press into his touch. We say nothing until the captain announces that we’ve reached our cruising altitude. Cav removes his seat belt and mine before hauling me back onto his lap. “Jesus Christ, woman. Feel what you did to me.” He presses his hips up and against me, and I wiggle my ass against his cock’s solid length. “I want it.” “Good, because I’m going to lower you onto your knees, unzip my pants, and help you take it down your throat. And then I’m going to lift you up on my lap and slide your pussy down my cock until you’re full of me.” His dirty talk kills me every time. “What are you waiting for?” I ask, my tone taking on a seductive depth. “Need to taste you again first.” His lips crush to mine, and his tongue dives inside without waiting for invitation. Cav kisses like he does everything else—throwing his whole self into it. His hand is buried in my hair, tilting my head the way he likes. I moan into his mouth, loving the urgency radiating from him. Finally, he pulls my head back, his eyes greener than before. “On your knees, baby girl.” I nod as he helps me to the floor, the plush carpeting cushioning my position. Cav unzips his jeans and fists his cock as he pulls it out. As I lean forward, my hair falls around my face, but with my bound hands, I’m helpless to pull it back. Cav wraps one hand around the tangled strands and clenches it behind my head. I’m at his mercy, and yet I’ve never felt more powerful. The need in his eyes burns into me, and I want to give as much as I want to take.        

dirty duet 3       

Desperately seeking rich, famous, single guy with a giant cock to make my lying, cheating, should’ve-been-born-dickless ex-boyfriend realize what he’s just lost.

Oh, and I give great head. Just sayin’.


No man in his right mind would answer that ad.

Except thousands did.

My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton’s playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.

Cue my look of shock when one of Hollywood’s hottest new bad boys, Cavanaugh Westman, comes knocking at my door and drops his pants to prove that he does indeed have a giant cock.

What he doesn’t have is an explanation for why he disappeared from my life without a word three years ago, only to show up on the big screen two years later, killing bad guys in action flicks.

And now he wants me again.

What the hell do I do now?

Find out more about BEFORE THAT NIGHT below and enter to win a $50 giftcard!



Before that night, Addison Millan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she’d bought with her first semester’s tuition refund—the only money her addict mother hadn’t taken off with when she’d abandoned them the year prior. Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he’d met a month ago when she’d first served him the city’s worst diner coffee...which he’d been drinking daily ever since. Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she’d been fighting hard not to fall for—her only friend in her new shadow of a life—would be in a position to rip her family apart. Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job. Then that one perfect night changed everything. BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Book 1) chronicles the destiny-altering events that take place seven years prior to EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Book 2), Caine & Addison’s emotional story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run—and chase—when their past threatens their future.

Christ, she just kept getting sweeter every day. When Addison rounded the counter and hopped up onto the empty stool next to him so she could stick up another collage of carefully cut, colored, and glittered Easter eggs on the wall, Caine felt his brain blitz out for a second or two. The woman was a petite little thing, but she had curves for days. And that perfect hourglass figure of hers was currently inches from his face. Good lord. “So you don’t think your brother’s making a good business decision?” she asked him quizzically as she wobbled a bit to try and reach a spot about a foot beyond her reach. His hands shot out to grab her waist and steady her. What in the world were they talking about again? “Thanks. I’m good now.” She finished taping up the eggs and blushed from the apples of her cheeks to the tips of her ears when he picked her up off the stool and gently settled her down on the ground. “Um, yeah. Again, thanks for the assist.” Quick as a skittish kitten, she scurry-shuffled back behind the counter. Meanwhile, Caine felt like his entire body was drifting in slow-motion—his brain especially, which was taking its sweet time un-fuzzing. Jesus, she’d felt good in his arms.

Protecting His Own Blog Tour Stop with ARC Review!

PROTECTING HIS OWN- Masters of the Shadowlands

Landscape designer, Beth King survived an abusive husband and built a new life for herself with the help of Master Nolan, the strongest, most protective man she has ever known. She loves him with all her heart, but the one thing he wants, she can’t give him. To her grief, the damage from her abusive first marriage means she can’t bear him children.

As Beth and Nolan change their plans and pursue adoption, they're already imagining a baby girl in the nursery. But when two boys from the local domestic violence shelter see their mother taken to the hospital, they call Beth in a panic. Agreeing to care for them temporarily, Beth soon falls in love with the two adorable boys.

Now Master Nolan has a new problem. How can he protect the children when their drug-addicted mother is released—and how the hell can he keep his sweet submissive’s heart from being broken when they leave?


I LOOOOOVED reading a book with more Beth and Nolan! And to see Beth so strong, beautiful, kind, and exceedingly brave is fantastic. Nolan is still the sexy, dominant, protective Dom we know and love but this time, he is determined to love and protect and bring together a family.

This story had me in tears...A LOT! So many feels in one story, especially one from one of our favorite Shadowland couple was something I wasn't expecting but treasured with every fiber of my being. The story is powerfully sweet and absolutely touching with our sexy protective and caring Dom and strong-willed, just-as-protective submissive. OMG, to say I loved watching these two get a family and the way they interacted with some kids that really needed love and affection, is putting it mildly! I had no idea the lovely Sinclair could write such a beautifully, touching, lip-biting story that could have my feelings so up and down. And yet, Miss Sinclair still managed to get some powerful, sexy, edgy, dominant scenes that we all expect and love from a Masters of the Shadowlands book. I actually think, this book tops most of her previous books. Mainly because it was more intense, and centered so much around children and family. This is just simply put, an absolute treasure!

Protecting His Own gets a FIRM BUT TOUCHING, FIVE SHOOTING STARS! This book will leave your emotions in every which way and back again! You will truly adore this book. A DEFINITE MUST HAVE NOW BOOK.

Curvy, intelligent and focused, Kyra Simmons has her eye on the prize. She’s locked her sights on becoming the top technical engineer for the most prestigious space program back on Earth. That is, until her life and plans are turned upside down in an instant on board a maintenance Space Station.

Stranded on the now failing Space station, Kyra needs a miracle to survive. She has no idea that the ‘foreign’ astronauts who show up to rescue her are out of this world—literally.

Warrior Lord Tordin, Crown Prince of Olodia, knows he’s outside of the Mandates of the Intergalactic Alliance when he intercedes to rescue the survivors of the Earth space station. But there’s something or someone pulling him in.

He’s not prepared for what he finds in the unassuming Earth female. Try as he might to stay away, the pull grows stronger and stronger to be with her. His mission depends on his ability to stay focused and be prepared, but that’s almost impossible with Kyra in his thoughts and dreams.

On the alien mother ship speeding away from Earth forever, Kyra’s biggest problem is not getting back to Earth; it’s how not to fall for this alien Warrior Lord who's the actual man of her dreams.

Can she find a way to realize her dreams of power and recognition now that she’s been rescued by Tordin?

Holding the contraption up for a better view, she’s caught off guard when a large, tall ‘astronaut’ intruder appears from heaven only knows where. Intent on finding out the truth about its origins, there’s no way Simona is letting him get his hands on the find of a lifetime—no matter how irresistible she finds him.

Michelle Spiva aka Mychal Daniels  Harassment (Interview) Questions:

1. Ok, so readers (I admit, ME) want to know how you came to be a writer? Did you always want to write?

No, I wanted to be a singer. My mother was a voracious reader and instilled a love of reading into me and many of my siblings. I loved the escape reading gave me and only considered writing when I was in a post-graduate degree program. The program was high stress, we weren’t really allowed to work and writing little stories for extra income seemed like a great idea.

My first stories were horrid, but I didn’t give up—even though the reviews suggested I should. Determined to learn the art and craft of storytelling, I began to write longer stories and people started to enjoy them. A few years later and I’m a full-time storyteller. I’m self-taught and charge myself to continue to learn always.  

 2. So we know you write this fantastic Olodian Warrior Romance Series which are Sci-fi romance, but what we want to know is
how did you decide to write these books?

It was a sort of request/challenge from another author. I was finishing up a contemporary romance two part story, when an author remarked on how my writing style (romantic suspense) would fit very well in SciFi romance. I was about to start a paranormal-shifter series and instead decided to let my imagination really run wild to go beyond the stars, where anything is possible.

 3. How many more in this series do you plan on writing?

I’m currently working on book #5 of the series, Restored By Gordin. I believe the fans will enjoy what this new book has in store for them.

I originally thought this would be a three book series and then it took off and the fans started asking for more books.

I won’t say this is the last, but I won’t promise there will be more either. I do have plans for some of the other Warriors that haven’t been featured, but they might show up in other series. Too soon to say for sure.

 4. Who is your favorite Olodian warrior and why?

Ah come on! That’s like asking who is your favorite child. I find that when I’m working on each story, that Alien Warrior is the one I’m focused on and want to know everything I can about. Each of them has their particular qualities that endear them to me. So, I’ll say each is special to me in his own way.

 5. Which heroine from the series would you say do you like best?

Again, we’re talking about my “babies” here. I love each of my heroines because they come to me with the best story to tell. They are flawed in their strength. Yet, they still have a journey worth exploring. I like being able to root for them to get the prize and live the happy ever after.

 6. Can you tell us a bit about your current WIP?

Sure! I’m currently working on Book #5 of this series and making notes on another one that will come after this book is complete.

In this WIP, we find Emperor Gordin and Ellery Chambers settling into a life of “roommates”. The transition is hard for both of them and manifest itself in unique ways for each. Emperor Gordin has to find a suitable way to interact with his charge, while Ellery must restore her faith in herself and others.
 7. What do you stress out the most with this particular series?

Making sure to give the best possible story I can. I am a storyteller. The story is the biggest part for me. More so than trying to have individual parts that stand out, I strive to have a story where the components flow and work well together to make a great story.

 8. Do you have a actor or model that represents what you think your favorite Olodian warrior looks like?

Ooh yum! I get to play Romance Hottie Casting Couch!
But seriously, I can only hope that they would become movies! And, if they did, I’d love for these gentlemen to play the heros.

Tordin (Rescued By Tordin):  Matthew Daddario OR Ian Somerhalder
Malm (Revived By Malm):  Channing Tatum OR Jason Momoa
Jalek (Ravished By Jalek): Zac Efron or Rob Lowe in his prime
Rilic (Redeemed By Rilic):  Sasha Roiz or Alexander Skarsgard
Gordin (Restored By Gordin: COMING SOON!): Chris Hemsworth OR Sean Connery in his prime

The heroine—I like to allow my readers to find something of themselves in her and so the best cast would be YOU! I do make them women of color in my books because I got tired of not seeing me in the stories. BUT, the stories are written so that she is a little of every woman.

  9. What is your favorite part about writing Sci-fi romances?

All the possibilities that live in the what if. SciFi Romance allows me to see myself in the possibility. As a woman of color, I can imagine that there are sexy Aliens who love all Earth women equally. I also imagine that all of them are the answers to many a fantasy and prayer as well. Writing SciFi Romance gives me the opportunity to explore my many whatifs without being questioned with any sort of history or proof that what I present couldn’t happen.

 10. Do you think you will write more Sci-Fi romances other than this series?

Yes, I do. I already have a new series in the works that I believe readers will get a lot of fun reading.

ARC Review - Water World Warrior by Lisa Lace!


Why would I want to be married to an alien? 

I should not have applied to TerraMates. The idea was crazy. I'm a young woman, in the prime of my life. 

But I was desperate. 

When I landed on another world, his appearance intrigued me. He dripped sexuality and moved like an animal. We have three days together before he sets sail without me. Am I going to escape or submit to my desires?


Water World Warrior is like a combination of pirate and sci-fi romance mixed together. It was that uniqueness that intrigued me. Its different yet sexy and oh so interesting. I liked the characters and how they came to be together. The fact that everything is wonderfully detailed helped me draw a wonderful picture in my head of everything that just was gasp-worthy. I loved the romance and the steamy scenes. So. Good.

This is my first book by Lisa Lace and the first Terramates novel and I really don't want it to be my last. I love sexy alien romances and this one is just too unique to give up! I loved the pirate like thrill and the sci-fi quality that just stunned me. A truly enjoyable read.


Netgalley ARC Review - denial by Lisa Renee Jones!


Book one in the CARELESS WHISPERS series. This is a standalone spin-off of the INSIDE OUT series (soon to be a TV show) that follows Ella Ferguson, Sara McMillan's best friend.

Ella Ferguson awakes alone in Italy, unsure of who she is, and a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He’s tall, dark, and sexy, with money and power, the kind of man who makes a girl want to be possessed. And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn't destroy her first.

WOW! This book was full of spirit, suspenseful, wonderfully strong sexual chemistry and truly remarkable characters! I freaking LOVED IT! The story is captivating from the very moment you open the book and it continues to draw you in, entrapping you in the best way. I was constantly biting my lip and my heart was always racing. I didn't know where the story was going to take me from one moment to the next and it was exhilarating. JUST AMAZING!

Lisa Renee Jones is a terrific writer. She added all my favorite elements to this story: Sizzling passion, sensual, moan-worthy sex, heart-thumping suspension and dream worthy romance. A truly delectable romance and unforgettable.

Denial gets a LIP-BITING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! The suspense and action is awesome and the romance and sex...AMAZING!

Netgalley ARC Review - Never Give You Up by Shady Grace!


A life of crime—or a lifetime of love?

Mary Billing knows her solitary mountain life is over when a handsome stranger blows on to her land in an unmarked chopper. Terry McCoy is not only dangerous to the pretty widow’s shattered senses, he’s a hardened criminal no woman in her right mind would fall for. Yet there’s something tender about Terry—something that makes her surrender to his searing touch. Now Mary is in deep—deep enough to be taken hostage by a villain whose true target is Terry…

The son of a notorious crime boss, Terry is about to take over his murdered father’s multi-million dollar empire. But first there’s the little matter of avenging his father’s death—and rescuing the one woman he knows could turn his hard-bitten life around. Terry never wanted a life of crime, but suddenly he’s ready to do just about anything to bring Mary back…


I love this type of romance! Mobs, damsels in distress, a surprising hero that is both dangerous, alluring, and sexy as sin. This story is fabulous! The characters are ones I like and the story captured me from the very beginning. Its full of action, suspense, danger, love, and smoking hot chemistry! 

After reading this book, I am eager to read more romances with sexy mob bosses, or sons of mob bosses in any case. I couldn't picture a son of a mob boss being such a delectable hero but dang, Shady Grace did a splendid job!
