Stay By Riley Hart
Stay is the second in the Blackcreek series….this is the story of Braden and Wes….and I can’t forget Jessie, Wes’s 4 year old niece … We meet Wes in Collide when he comes into town to stay with his terminally sick sister….Well, the inevitable happens and Wes, a single, gay, almost thirty year old is now the sole guardian of Jessie….Wes’s sister had faith in him, saw something in him and/or felt that this responsibility was just…right…. the love, compassion, passion and tenderness shown between Wes and Braden blew me away…the way Braden took it upon himself to help Wes with Jessie was amazing….so natural and effortless….MM
Mrs. R By Jessie Courts
I get so happy when I find a great read that has a tad “more mature” heroine whom I can relate to a little more closely. Forty-two year old Rachel has lost her husband in an accident….the mother of two, college-aged, twin daughters, she finds herself lost and in a deep, self consuming depression….oh, but how things can change…! Rachel’s daughter’s bring home their friend, Luc, for a holiday visit, and Rachel, uh ahem, finds herself coming (wink) out of her days of dread, thanks to the man-boy-god with blond hair and starry blue eyes…. As Rachel moves along, feeling quite a lot better about life in general, she heads back to her late husbands law firm to finish a project that the two of them found passionate. Enter…..Joe Mason….the American CEO of this firm …yeah, this story just gets better!!
Hi there fellow book-lover’s,
This week’s sale list is amazing! I think my one-clicking finger has working overtime these days! I hope that everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend and find’s some time to kick back with an amazing book and relax! Lisa
8 Mile & Rion By K.S. Adkins
I loved this story! The relationship between the two main characters Rion and Loyal, was, in one word, explosive … Along with the two of them, their dysfunctional supporting cast helped to make this book one crazy read! Rion is a thirty year old, hell-on-wheels bookie who is trying to put her life back together after the loss of her dad who was THE bookie. Together, they ran his business. Loyal, an alpha, ex-Marine comes back from his years of service very mentally ( sort of PTSD) damaged with nothing and no one. There’s so many reasons why Rion and Loyal shouldn’t work, but these two are perfect for each other. This story isn’t easy. Someone going through a traumatic meltdown is hard to take. This story is raw, brutal, intense, and beautiful all at the same time. There were so many layers of f#cked-up ness to Loyal that I really wondered how this book would all end. Damn, K.S. Adkins knows exactly how to suck you into her stories and spit you out ~ you’ll be thanking her that she did. Brilliant …
Love’s Medicine By Ashley John
Every time I finish a book in this series I feel like Surf Bay becomes more and more real to me! I mean, I feel I should be tying a bib on as I eat at the Lobster Shack, I know exactly where the police station is, the thumping of the music at the Neon Zone, and I’m happy that the animal hospital is up and running as well! This installment is about Sammie and Justin. Along with, the more than fair share of heartache that Justin deserves, I felt so sad for him wondering if his feelings towards his best friend would be reciprocated. These two really found themselves in pretty dire situations; simply put ~ good guys doing unethical things. I also feel that out of all the Surf Bay characters, Sammie was the toughest one to get a hold on. His fear of commitment held steady throughout this story. But, in true Ashley John fashion, love will conquer even the most trying! Love’s Medicine had it all ~ heartache, angst, laughs and love coupled with descriptive and beautifully written prose ~ just what the doctor ordered ~ Can’t wait for my next read from my fab go to author! MM
Shades: An Evil Dead MC Story By Nicole James
Another fantastic read from Nicole James, whom I swear, is becoming one of the best MC authors around. In this installment, the story revolves around Skylar and Shades. Long lost lover’s that have met up again years later, and not because of a pleasant reunion. Again, we have a badass member of the Evil Dead MC Club helping their damsel in distress. Shades is smokin hot and Skylar is just enough strong/just enough submissive. Loved the chemistry between them. They seemed as if they really were perfectly meant for one another. The story has just enough twists and turns to make it interesting and intense. But … what I love most about Nicole’s books, along with her great main characters, are all the OTHER supporting characters!!! Omg, we meet Undertaker and Blood (can’t wait for his story!) also, I fell madly in love with Ghost! Again, Nicole blows me away with all the natural banter and camaraderie amongst the brothers. There is nothing stronger than the bond that ties the Evil Dead together whether it be among their own chapter or (in this installment) two other chapters that were amazingly incorporated into this book. I just love this author and I always look forward to her next read!
The Photographer Trilogy By Sarah Robinson
The Photographer Trilogy sort of did a number on me. My emotions were all over the place ~ when good things happened to Kate, I was overjoyed, yet a chapter later I was bawling my eyes out wondering just how much one person can take. This story is painful to read at times, but necessary to give validity to the reality and horror of abuse. I really admire and understand the passion Sarah Robinson put into each of her characters in order to make her story feel real. Her attention to detail painted a perfect picture of each scene in my mind. I’d like to think that this book pays homage to all victims of any type of abuse ~ and what doesn’t kill you (literally) makes you stronger. Fabulous job by Ms. Robinson. Looking forward to reading more of her work.

The Vixon and the Vet By Katy Regnery
This is a cute story of girl who was “dismissed” from her reporting job and runs back home to recuperate. She is given one more chance to make a name for herself, by interviewing the town recluse, Asher Lee. After returning wounded and disfigured from Afghanistan, Asher Lee has cut himself off from the world. When Savannah comes knocking at his door, his world is turned upside down.
I loved this story of patience, courage and trust. Savannah and Asher were adorable together and I was cheering for them all the way.
This book is based on the Beauty and the Beast. The next book in the series Never Let You Go, based on Hansel and Gretel, is due out next month. Recommended by Diana from TPAM- Goodreads
Propositioning Mr. Raine By Laurann Dohner
First of all Laurann Dohner is one of my most favorite authors. She always gives me
a very sexy good time. This book is no exception. I loved this story. It’s quite
erotic with a good story and very likeable main characters. There is a rope scene
that is burned into my memory forever. Recommended by Stacie from TPAM-Goodreads
Seven Years to Sin By Sylvia Day
I absolutely loved Alistar and Lady Sheffield. This was one of my first looks into
the damaged male psyche. Sylvia Day has said this story is where some of her ideas
behind “Bared to You” started to form. Very good historical romance. Recommended by Stacie from TPAM-Goodreads
May 26th: 21 Stolen Kisses By Lauren Blakely
May 26th: The Cage By Megan Shepard
May 26th: Ultraviolet By Jessica Sorenson
by Jessica Clare
Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation.
He’s had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—he has a chance to mend his broken heart.
When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met—down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato.
She also has no clue that he’s rich…
Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What’s the harm in a little fling when it’s just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan’s arms, Bronte’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge.
But she soon discovers there’s more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more. Now, Bronte’s caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world’s most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?
This was a cute billionaire book where Logan just bought a resort and during his visit a hurricane forces everyone to be evacuated. However, Bronte and Logan are left to fend for themselves after being trapped in an elevator. As the two get to know each other their chemistry explodes and they engage in some hot, delicious sex on the island. But once they leave the island the reality of the situation kicked in. She works in a diner and he’s a billionaire. So he does what most men with money do…… manipulate the situation to his advantage. But Bronte isn’t an ordinary waitress, she is an educated waitress who recognized that she was in a cat and mouse game and she refuses to succumb to it.
Eventually, everything works out, but I loved watching everything unfold. I loved when Logan realizes that being a billionaire was not going to get him anywhere and that he was actually going to have to work at their relationship. He had to realize that he couldn’t just bulldoze her into doing everything he wanted. Because Bronte wasn’t a weak person. She was a strong and independent woman.

When Bianca and Jakob awake on a sandy shore in the middle of nowhere, their first thoughts are of survival. But as they explore their surroundings and try to discover who stranded them on the island, they can’t deny the electricity surging between them. Soon it’s more than just a campfire keeping them warm…
But just as Bianca is starting to trust Jakob, she uncovers a clue to their abduction—and he may know more than he’s letting on. Was Jakob just as surprised as she to find himself alone with her…or could the man she’s fallen for be her captor?
I was online trying to decide if I should read this book or a different book when J.S. Cooper informed me that I must read this book. So I one-clicked this book and ended up staying up all reading this book. I then spent the next day cussing out J.S. Cooper in my mind. FYI: I hate working on no sleep.
The Question: “Why didn’t I just go to sleep when it got late?”
The Answer: “The book sucked me in and I couldn’t stop turning the pages.”
The craziness of Jacob, David and Mattias continued in this book. But just like the last book……. the bombshells kept coming. This book had my emotions jumping all over the place. Even now, I still don’t have this book figured out. You know an author is a FANTASTIC writer when you cannot figure out the ending. I still have absolutely zero idea who is good and who is bad in this book. I have a ton of theories and they are all very different and something tells me that in the end they will all be wrong.
I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait until Dec. for Resolution to be released because I really need a resolution to this book. I HAVE TO KNOW what is going to happen. I HAVE TO KNOW what is the truth! I HAVE TO KNOW who set all this chaos up! I HAVE TO KNOW who is good and who is bad!!! J.S. COOPER…….. I HAVE TO KNOW!!!!!

The perfect place for a woman on the run to disappear…
Accused of a horrific murder she didn’t commit, former heiress Callie Ward has been a fugitive since she was sixteen–until she found the perfect hideout, Club Dominion. The only problem is she’s fallen for the club’s master, Mitchell Thorpe, who keeps her at arm’s length. Little does she know that his reasons for not getting involved have everything to do with his wounded heart…and his consuming desire for her.
To live out her wildest fantasies…
Enter Sean Kirkpatrick, a Dom who’s recently come to Dominion and taken a pointed interest in Callie. Hoping to make Thorpe jealous, she submits to Sean one shuddering sigh at a time. It isn’t long before she realizes she’s falling for him too. But the tender lover who’s seducing her body and slowly earning her trust isn’t who he claims…
And to fall in love.
When emotions collide and truths are exposed, Sean is willing to risk all to keep Callie from slipping through his fingers. But he’s not the only man looking to stake a claim. Now Callie is torn between Sean and Thorpe, and though she’s unsure whom she can trust, she’ll have to surrender her body and soul to both–if she wants to elude a killer…
Poor Callie has been on the run for awhile and when she decided to stay at Club Dominion she does it because she wants Thorpe. However, Thorpe keeps pushing her away. So when Sean shows up on the scene wanting Callie and Thorpe attempts to go all alpha-male on Callie. He has decided that he does want her; however Callie has already started developing feelings for the YUMMY Sean as well.
All of the players in this book have secrets and we all know what happens when there are secrets in relationships. Add into it a killer that is after Callie………. and then add two Doms who aren’t going to give her up for anything. So what do you get when you add all of that together?!?!?!? An awesome book.
I enjoy books that are fast paced, have drama and have angst. The book had all of that plus some fun humor because Callie had tendency to top from the bottom. Many times, I enjoy putting myself into the character’s shoes because it brings much more of the books emotions to life for me and I can just imagine that I would top from the bottom all the time, so it made me laugh. I also enjoyed both Doms. I would have been like Callie and wanted them both. Not one, but both. They were so HOT, YUMMY, ALPHA and PROTECTIVE!!! PERFECT MEN!!!! And the ending, it was also perfect. I enjoyed the compromises and the thought that both men put into what they wanted. Again, Great Book!!

Mine To Hold (Book 6)
Belong to Me
By Shayla Black
She’s undercover and in over her head…
When FBI analyst Tara Jacobs’s fellow agent and best friend goes missing while investigating a sex ring, Tara goes undercover as a submissive in a Dallas BDSM club called Dominion. But no man can top a woman with Tara’s moxie convincingly enough—until an edgy, dangerous Dom takes control of the scene and sets her heart racing with a single, commanding glance. Too bad he’s also the man who stole her innocence years ago—and one to whom she will never submit.
He’s got everything under control…until he falls for her again.
Navy SEAL Logan Edgington once left the woman he loved to save her life. He knows Tara will never forgive him, but he has no doubt that he possesses the knowledge to help her master her fears and the strength to guide her through an unfamiliar world of pleasure and pain. He alone can protect her on a dangerous mission that reveals both wicked depravities and terrible secrets. Logan relishes the exquisite torture of holding her again and feeling her uninhibited response. No matter how much Tara insists their fling will end after this mission, he’s determined that she will be his once more—and this time, he’ll never let her go.
So I thought that I wanted Hunter! Holy cow was I wrong! I wanted the other brother, Logan! He’s the man for me! I finally got what I was in search of. I wanted a dominating man who knew when to push and when not to push. I wanted a man that would put his woman first. Logan was that man!
Tara was the woman that he fell in love with years ago and at 16 he knew she was the one! However, when his mother was married and the killer threatened to harm Tara, he lets her go. Since then he has never found another woman that makes him feel whole.
Tara has been working for the FBI and her friend went missing in an underground sex ring. When she decided to go undercover she didn’t realize that she would have to learn to be a submissive to the man that broke her heart and took her virginity.
Once the two get back together the threats start coming again, but this time Logan isn’t backing away!
I loved this story! There was drama. There was angst. There was a hot sexy Dom! There was everything that I needed. Logan was a sweet yet seasoned Dom. Control in the bedroom yet empowered with love. ***SWOON*** He even went soft on punishment one day just to give her what she needed!!! PERFECT!!!! I was putty in Logan’s hand! There was also a crazy plot twist. I guessed it but didn’t want to believe it. And when I flipped the page and saw it……. I still didn’t want to believe it.
I was completely engrossed in this book and it took my emotions on a roller coaster. The writer was able to put me in Tara’s shoe which brought up all sorts of emotions in me. For me, this is when I know I’ve found an amazing book! I loved it!!
