Beautiful Crazy by Kasey Lane – Review

reviewBeautiful Crazy

Synopsis

She’s a rocker with attitude and ink…He’s a sexy suit who gets what he wants

Kevan Landry is trying to keep her life on track and her brother in rehab. If her fledgling marketing firm can sign the hot new band, Manix Curse, it will make a world of difference. Mason Dillon heads the most successful music PR firm in Portland. He’s desperate to breathe new life into the company by signing Manix Curse.

The last thing either one needs is a one-night stand with a smoldering stranger…

The stakes are high when a battle for the band—in the bedroom and the boardroom—becomes a battle of the heart. But if these two can set aside their differences, they may find they’re the right mix of sexy savvy to conquer both their worlds.

goodreads

I loved Kevan from the start and Mason was hot as the suit, but overall I didn’t connect with this book. It started out with a bang and a rock show and then progressed into a cat and mouse game with one step forward and two steps back. The whole time I could not connect with either of the main characters. They wanted each other and didn’t want each other and I could not get on board with the hot and cold act.

The story was very well written and I enjoyed reading about the band and the marketing attempts, but the way the characters acted just put me off from the start. I do recommend this book though it was a pretty interesting read once things started picking up and the characters were very interesting and vibrant. I will be checking out the next books in the series and I can’t wait to read more from Kasey Lane.

For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne – Review

For Better or Worse

27276194Synopsis

Will a budding wedding planner and her bad boy neighbor stop banging heads and start hearing wedding bells in the sexy second novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s irresistible new series that marries Sex and the City with The Wedding Planner?

When small-town girl Heather Fowler finally gets promoted from assistant to actual wedding planner, she’s determined to make it as one of Manhattan’s elite Wedding Belles. Unfortunately, her first client demands an opulent black-tie affair at the Plaza…in five months’ time. Heather’s days quickly become a flurry of cake tastings, dress-fittings, RSVP cards, and bridal tantrums. But what she’s really losing sleep over is the live music blaring from her playboy neighbor’s apartment all night.

Five years ago, Josh Tanner was an up-and-comer on Wall Street, complete with the penthouse and the migraines. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there is more to life than the corner office. If only he could convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. As Heather lets down her guard, Josh is surprised when he starts falling for the sweet, vulnerable woman hiding beneath those power suits. Soon, it’s Heather’s turn to convince Josh to take the biggest risk of all: love.

I was excited to see more of the Belles and this awesome new series by Lauren Layne. And Heather and Josh did not disappoint… Josh was so swoony, while being the jerk musician next door and Heather was so funny and sweet it made for a great combination to read. I am dying to get my hands on Alexis’ story and see what is next for the Belles.

Furious Rush by SC Stephens – Review

Furious Rush

Stephens_FuriousRush_TRSynopsis

Too fast, too furious—and way too hot to handle…

Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father’s talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team’s newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie’s skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she’s racing against Hayden.

As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense—and strictly forbidden—attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind…

My Thoughts

This was a really interesting, really exciting, fast paced read and I was hooked from page 1. I really loved the world that SC Stephens has created here, with the motorcycle crews and the riders along with the street racing world. It was all intense, fast paced and fun to read.

The push and pull between Hayden and Kenzie was wonderful and the whole book was a fun interesting read. I loved the riding aspects and the thrills that were thrown in to the story, but at times it felt like there was too much going on. Too many hands in the pot so to speak and it made the story feel a little muddled at times.

Overall it was a good read that I enjoyed. I recommend this book for people who love racing and a very intense and driven heroine and a bad boy who would do anything for her.

Worked Up

Worked Up CoverSynopsis

Factory mechanic Duke Crawford just wants to watch SportsCenter in peace. Unfortunately, living with four divorcee sisters doesn’t provide much silence, nor does it change his stance on relationships. But when a fellow commitment-phobe stumbles into his life, getting him good and worked up, he can’t deny his protective instincts.

Samantha Waverly’s brother just put her in an impossible situation. The only way out? Marry huge, gruff, gladiator look-alike Duke—for show, of course. She doesn’t make promises—she knows too well how easily they can be broken—and this is no exception.

As the blistering attraction between them grows, the lines around the no-strings relationship blur. But Duke and Samantha’s marriage is only for show…or is it?

Review

3.5 Stars

My Thoughts

Duke is the kind of grumpy, pouty man who his appearance screams don’t mess with me and inside he is a big teddy bear. Samantha has been sheltered and is trying to break free and do something daring. They are each drawn to the other immediately and things moved from there pretty quickly. There was some major insta love in this book and an even faster marriage.

Overall the book had a lot going for it, but ultimately Duke started grating on my nerves after a while. I am ok with the broody, dominate man sometime, but Duke was over the top even for me. Add to that one brother I couldn’t stand that is trying to force marriage and I was a little disenchanted. I loved all of the puns from Sam and her drawings and pretty much everything about her, but she became meek when her brother was around and it felt a little off for me.

I love Tessa’s writing and her steamy scenes are off the charts, but this one just didn’t quite work for me. I recommend checking out this one for yourself, as it was a decent read, especially if you like the strong, quiet type and a broody alpha. It was a fun read that was over the top, but I did enjoy most of the book.

Notable Quotes

Mother Mary. There were men. And then there was Duke Crawford. He wasn’t pretty or sculpted. Didn’t have the kind of physique that would land him on the pages of a calendar or on a “hot bodies” board on Pinterest. No no. Duke was husky and covered in hair. A bear among mere cubs.


 Are you on a five-way text with them? Yes. Biggest mistake of my life. He pulled out onto the dark street, hitting the blinker and turning right. It’s like the mafia, these group texts. Once you’re in, you’re in for life.


I don’t want to be another responsibility to you.
Let me be the place you lose yourself instead.


We’re going to fuck tonight. Your bed. Mine. On the floor. In the shower. Against the window. All. Goddamn. Night. You’re going to know me from every angle when the sun comes up over New Jersey tomorrow.

Bad Boys After Dark: Mick by Melissa Foster – Review

Bad Boys After Dark: Mick

Synopsis

Indulge your inner vixen…

Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, fiercely loyal, uber alpha brothers about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. If dirty talk, cursing, or raw, passionate sex turns you off, the After Dark books are not for you, because everything’s naughtier after dark.

In BAD BOYS AFTER DARK: MICK…
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action–and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man–until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction–no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting–the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

goodreads

Review

3.5 Stars

This was a super hot and steamy quick read. I loved Mick and Amanda and their off the charts chemistry. I look forward to reading more of this series.

My Thoughts

This book starts out with Amanda Jenner wanting to unleash her inner vixen and take control of her love life, and after much research on the subject she settles on a masquerade party to test her seduction skills. She sets her sights on a masked man who turns out to be her boss. He puts a stop to the one night stand and proposes an arrangement. One night of passion to test her skills quickly turns in to a decadent weekend filled with pleasure and passion. But what will happen come Monday morning?

I really enjoyed this take on the boss/employee trope. I really liked Amanda and her take charge attitude through most of the book, but everyone in a while she would be a needy insecure girl and it drove me nuts. And Mick was a broody alpha male most of the time, but he would spout things like no romance and don’t do this or that and then flip the switch and be uber romantic and sweet. I love a little back and forth, but I just did not click with this one. It was a very good, very well written, very fun sexy read, but for me it is only a 3.5. I recommend picking up this book and plan to read as many Melissa Foster books as I can. The writing and story was really good, just not my favorite book.

Dark Sexy Knight by Katy Regnery – Review

Dark Sexy Knight

29973144Synopsis

From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes another timeless tale of love everlasting!

Loosely inspired by the legend of Camelot, Dark Sexy Knight tells the story of dinner theater knight Colt Lane, who meets down-on-her-luck Verity Gwynn on the worst day of her life. Evicted from their home, Verity and her special-needs brother, Ryan, must find jobs or risk being separated. Colt, who is the furthest-possible thing from a white knight in real life, comes to their unlikely rescue, quickly cementing his place in Verity’s heart.

Colt has dark, deeply buried secrets that keep his smile hidden and his eyes down, which has kept people away . . . until he meets Verity, who seems immune to his gruff manners and taciturn ways. The more time Colt spends with her, the more he longs for her sweetness in his life and yearns to be the knight in shining armor she so desperately needs. Certain he will lose her if she learns the truth about his past, he must decide if he can trust her with his yesterday in order to build a beautiful tomorrow.

goodreads

Review

3.5 Stars

It was sweet, sexy, touching, very swoony and incredibly romantic. This book was loosely based on the story of Camelot, but has been updated in the best way. It’s a contemporary fairy tale with a moody, brooding, deeply protective modern-day bad-boy knight who falls utterly in love with a down-on-her-luck damsel in distress who he rescues. I enjoyed reading so much it was over before I knew it. It was a very sweet, sexy, swoony quick read that I highly recommend checking out.

Let Me by Cecy Robson – Review

Let Me

LETME_CoverSynopsis

Once he was broken beyond repair.
Now this MMA contender is fighting to be a better man—for her. RT Book Reviews
proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson
“has the hottest brothers ever!” And in Let Me, it is Finn’s turn to discover
how love can heal the deepest wounds.

A mixed martial arts star on the
rise, Finn O’Brien dismantles his opponents with brutal precision. And yet
beneath his fierce persona, Finn is raw from a trauma he’s buried for years . .
. until the day his deep-rooted rage erupts and lands him in court-mandated
therapy. Finn’s not one to bare his soul, but if talking it out means meeting
beautiful women like Sol Marieles, he’ll give it a shot.

 Sol is working toward her master’s
degree in psychology, and already she feels like she’s in over her head. With
an important internship on the line and a scary family situation demanding her
attention, the last thing Sol needs is Finn around to distract her. The man is
ripped and seriously sexy yet it’s his troubled side that warns her to keep her
distance. But their attraction is intense, and he clearly has the heat to see
how far and fast their passion takes them.

 Alone, Finn and Sol have been
fighting to find happiness in their lives. Together, there’s no stopping them
as they face their greatest challenges—not in the ring, but in their
hearts.

goodreads

Review

3.5 Stars

This book was beautiful and heartbreaking and romantic and emotional all at the same time. It was also tough read, but well worth reading. These two beautifully broken and flawed souls finding each other and working to make each other whole again.

My Thoughts

Cecy knows how to tackle difficult or uncomfortable subject matters and even though they can be hard to read, her characters always come out the other side stronger and better for having gone through them. I knew Finn’s story was going to be a rough one and she didn’t disappoint. I also knew it would be a beautiful one; one full of hope and promise and I was not disappointed.

Finn O’Brien is at the top of his MMA game, when his demons start to become more than he can take. He gets sent to therapy to deal with his issues. He runs into Sol while in therapy. Sol and Finn have known each other since they were little kids, but they don’t exactly know each other at all, in fact at times it felt like nobody really knew either of them.

Sol is struggling to cope with her mother’s mental illness and seems to be struggling the most with allowing others the opportunity to help. I got the fact that she wanted to be the one that could help her mum but shouldering all the responsibility herself was not the healthiest way to handle the situation.

A story full of ups, downs, good days and bad along with everything in between. It was a beautiful story about second chances, love, redemption and letting things you can’t control go in order to move on. It is definitely a story you do not want to miss. Highly recommended if you like your bad boy fighter with a tender side and a whole brood of demons to slay.

Dirty Sexy Inked by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde – Review

Dirty Sexy Inked

12167214_10153136555452681_485539440_n FINALSynopsis

Breaking hearts is what wild and rebellious Mason Kincaid does best. Hit it and quit it is his motto, and with his bad boy reputation and tattoos, he doesn’t lack for female companionship. Until one hot night with the one woman he swore he’d never touch becomes an all consuming addiction he can’t kick. Katrina Sands has been his best friend for years, but now that he knows what she feels like, and tastes like, there is no going back to being just friends. Hot, dirty sex has never felt so good…or so right.

goodreads

Review

3.5 Stars

This book had it all… Unrequited love = check; Friends to Lovers = check; Smoking hot sexytimes = check; A reformed manwhore = check; A what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas hookup = check. All of these things added up to a fun, sweet and seriously sexy read.

My Thoughts

When we met Mason in the last book he was a total man whore, going after anything with a pulse. I was intrigued by his role in the brothers and was happy to get into his head and heart. He has some serious commitment issues and is ignoring his growing attraction to his childhood best friend Katrina.

Katrina has been in love with Mason for as long as she can remember. He was her savior in high school and the two have relied on each other ever since. It is getting harder and harder for her to see Mason hooking up with everyone around her and treating her as his sisterly best friend.

The pair are attending Clay and Samantha’s wedding in Vegas, with Clay planning a wild weekend and getting laid constantly and Katrina wanting to enjoy a weekend with the girls. The guys crash the ladies party while they are at Coyote Ugly. Katrina decides to let loose and dance on the bar, which sets Mason into alpha mode.

The chemistry and heat is off the charts once they give into it. What starts as a hookup quickly turns in to a friends with benefits thing while they are in Vegas. When they return home Mason realizes that he has always wanted more from Katrina, but was afraid of losing her or hurting her.

I enjoyed Mason and Kat but it felt a little rushed. Mason’s 180 from man whore to you are the only girl in the world is one of those things that always bug me a little bit. Overall I liked the story and enjoyed the banter and history between Mason and Kat. Recommended if you like your tattooed bad boy with a healthy dose of sweet along with his tortured past.

A review copy was provided by Rockstar Lit PR for an honest review.

Notable Quotes

She owned his heart. She was the other half of his soul. And he never wanted to live his life without her in it.


Whether Katrina knew it or not, she was his. And he was going to do everything in his power to prove it.


He didn’t know how to do gentle or romantic. When he fucked, he was rough and hard and demanding. Katrina was the one good thing in his life, and he never wanted to taint her with his perverse need to use sex, to use her, to ease all those underling raging emotions form the past that he struggled to keep buried so he didn’t hurt anyone or anything.


They were two damaged people who’d managed to heal each other with something as simple as unconditional love. The fact that they were best friends who had phenomenal sex was a bonus.

Dirty Sexy Saint by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde – REVIEW REPOST

Dirty Sexy Saint

Synopsis12167406_10153136549657681_785521662_n FINAL

Are you ready to get Dirty Sexy with a Saint?

Clay Kincaid knows he’s more a sinner than a saint. Especially when it comes to women. With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn’t do committed relationships. But he does like sex–the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson. Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does.

Let the sinning begin . . .

Review

3.5 Stars

I really liked Clay and the entire Kincaid clan. The story was well written and fun, but for me it moved a little slow in some parts and I found myself skimming a little. I would definitely recommend you get to know the Dirty Sexy series. It was well worth the read and I can’t wait to get to know Mason and Levi better.

My Thoughts

We first meet Samantha Jamieson her father is trying to force her to marry someone to keep the business in the family. She overhears these plans and refuses. Her father threatens to cut her off if she does not comply with his demands, so she leaves everything behind and goes. She ends up at a bar and gets wasted with no place to go or no money to spend.

She ends up at Clay’s bar Kincaid’s and “Saint” Clay helps her out and gives her a place to stay for the night. The next morning she tells Clay the whole story and he lets her stay with him and work at his bar. The two fight a strong attraction and dance around each other every day, while Samantha finds herself and starts to enjoy her independence. When they start a no strings affair, it soon becomes something more, until Clay’s past and Samantha’s present start to collide.

Dirty Sexy Saint was the an easy and very sexy read, it delivered a strong plot and enjoyable characters with good chemistry and real feelings. I cannot wait for book 2 in this series and seeing Clay’s brothers meet their match. Mason is a tattoo artist with manwhore ways and a seriously hot best friend that wants more, and Levi is a cop that is serious and straight laced.

Notable Quotes

I know, without a doubt, that I want you. More than I’ve ever wanted another man.


I don’t do soft and gentle and sweet. I like to control and fuck so hard and deep you’ll scream and be sore the next day. I’d want you on your knees, with my hands fisted in your hair while you suck my cock, and then I’d bend you over this table, spread your legs wide, and fuck you all over again.


He left no part of her untouched. Physically, he owned her. Emotionally, he felt so right, so much a part of her. So inevitable. Like she’d been waiting her whole entire life to meet him , to be with him. She’d never had that kind of intimate and profound connection with a man before… and she feared she never would again.


You’re playing with the hottest kind of fire there is, Cupcake.


You’d better feed me a bite of that cupcake before I change my mind and eat you instead


You can’t force a vibrant, independent woman like Samantha to be someone or something she isn’t and expect her to be happy.

However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates.

Forever Pucked by Helena Hunting – Review

Forever Pucked

29348230Synopsis

Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be?

In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he’s an incurable romantic with an XL heart, and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

So it makes complete sense that Violet Hall can’t wait to nail him down to the matrimonial mattress and become Mrs. Violet Waters.

It’s so romantic.

Violet is totally stoked to set a date.

Eventually. At some point. Likely before the next millennium. Or when Violet stops getting hives every time someone brings up the wedding, and their mothers stop colluding on stadium sized venues. Whichever comes first.

Review

3.5 Stars 4 Stars

I really enjoyed this quick, fun return to Violet and Alex. It was nice to see the whole crew and to finally find out why Violet hates weddings. The Beaver and the Super MC are back and they’re getting married!

My Thoughts

This is the continuation of Alex and Violet’s crazy love story. This book is full of funny, silly, and sexy times…all things that we come to expect from these characters. But it also shows some touching and tender moments where we get to see more sides of both Alex and Violet that we haven’t seen before. I really enjoyed these more serious grown up moments right alongside the silliness.

Overall this was a really fun story that had many touching moments and a whole lot of laughs. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys a dash of silly, a large serving of belly laughs and a pinch of drama.
