Review and Contest: One Night Of Scandal

ONoScandal_5001-270x405 One Night of Scandal by Elle Kennedy

4 out of 5 Licks

The wrong man never felt so right…

Ex-fighter Reed Miller has been secretly lusting over his best friend’s girl for months, but he refuses to jeopardize a friendship over a woman—especially one who doesn’t like him all that much. Now that Darcy’s on the market again, it’s even more imperative to stick to his strict hands-off policy. But the sizzling attraction between them is too powerful to ignore, and once he’s had a taste of her…all bets are off.

Darcy Grant is tired of walking the straight and narrow path. She’s on the hunt for passion, and there’s no denying Reed is just the man to give it to her. Although she has no interest in dating a bad boy, and certainly not her ex’s best friend, it’s impossible not to melt beneath Reed’s skillful touch. Now it’s just a matter of setting a few ground rules—and hoping her rule-breaking, sweet-talking bad boy agrees to follow them. But if she lets Reed into her bed, does she stand a chance of keeping him out of her heart?

The continuation of the After Hours series gets right to the tension that we saw briefly between Darcy and Reed in One Night of Sin.  They try hard to fight what’s clearly between them but you can only fight chemistry for so long.  After a small dry humping session in the corner of Reeds club Sin they try to steer clear of each other.  They both feel a bit guilty about their attraction since Darcy just got out of a relationship with one of Reed’s best friends-AJ.  Darcy discovers her inner vixen whenever she’s near Reed.  She just can’t help but tease and push him all the while hoping he will finally break.  And when he finally does break it’s so smoking hot they break the smoke detectors-well not really but read this book and you’ll see what I mean.  Poor Reed has a bad boy reputation that he can’t seem to shake.  He wants to prove to Darcy that he wants a serious relationship, but she’s so busy trying to prove to him that she can do casual that she doesn’t realize that’s not what he wants.  It was a lot of fun watching these two fight and finally submit to their desires.  They do a lot to keep the excitement level up and Reed slowly proves to her that she’s what he wants.  The end is so sweet I almost cried, but the epilogue brought back the fun, outgoing couple again.  Another great book from Elle and I’m definitely going to have to read more of her books.

Review and Contest: One Night of Sin

Event Banner (1)

 

ONoSin_500 One Night of Sin by Elle Kennedy

5 out of 5 Licks

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skyler’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

OMG this book was so freaking HOT!!!!! This book is classified as a novella, but Elle did a great job introducing the characters and building the relationship between these two.  It starts out as two people with a very intense attraction and grows into a relationship without either of them even noticing.  lol I was hooked from the first paragraph.  I didn’t stop reading once I started until I finished.  When Gage and Skyler together are a major fire hazard, they were setting stuff on fire left and right.  I love watching big, tough guys fall hard and Gage is the epitome of tough guy.  Even though he shows Skyler what it’s like to walk on the wild side, he also shows her his sweet side that makes me melt.  I’m looking forward to seeing what the next book in this series brings.

Audio Review: Ivan’s Captive Submissive

Ivan Ivan’s Captive Submissive by Ann Mayburn

4 out of 5 Licks

Book 1 in the Submissives Wish Series

When Gia Lopez signs up for the Submissive’s Wish Charity Auction she has no idea that she’s about to be bought by a Russian Dom who will do anything to make her fantasies come true. Including staging an elaborate kidnapping that Gia believes is real. Ivan is instantly drawn to Gia and he wants to be the best Master she’s ever had. As he spends time with Gia he begins to have intense feelings for the strong, independent, and sexy American woman. He’s only won a week of her service but wishes to keep her forever.

Unaware of Ivan’s true feelings, Gia fights her growing emotional attachment to him. All she wants is to settle down with a nice Dom in the United States, continue her career, and live a normal life. However, Ivan sets a plan into motion that will push Gia to all of her limits and take her on a global journey of self-discovery, extreme pleasure, and love.

Warning: Contains Erotic Spanking, Subspace, f/f situations, a devastatingly sexy Dom who knows what he wants, and a submissive who just might be ready to give him what he needs.

Let’s start with the narrator-whew his accent is sexy!!  I did have to listen a little more closely at first to understand him at times, but I quickly got used to it and was fine from that point on.  I did notice a few times when I believe he said wrong words-I saw this because the sentence didn’t make sense so I’m assuming since I didn’t have the book right in front of me while listening.  Holy crap this book is freaking hot!  Heed the warning above my kittens!  This book is full of seriously sexy BDSM scenes and one hell of a head fuck!  You know I’m not one for ruining surprises so I won’t say more than that about that subject.  Ivan is all about pushing Gia’s limits.  He takes her to places she’s never even imagined were possible and in turn she gives him everything she has.  Ivan rides the line between insanely sexy and dangerous.  There are some pretty strong scenes in this one so make sure you are prepared to read some heavy stuff along with the lighter side of things.  There is even some knife play which always peeks my interest.  It’s not all BDSM though, there is plenty of romance happening too.  This book will give you a little bit of action, plenty of passion, and a love story as well.  Another amazing read by Ann Mayburn, I can’t wait to see what she brings next!

Review: Hero By Night

Hero By Night Hero By Night by Sara Jane Stone

5 out of 5 Licks

Book Three:  Independence Falls

He was nobody’s hero until he landed in the wrong bed …

Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls seems like the first step to reclaiming her life until the town playboy stumbles into her bed …

Chad Summers is living his dream—helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream goodbye. But when he ends up in the wrong bed, the one woman in Independence Falls he can’t touch offers a tempting proposition. Chad is ready and willing to give in to the primal desire to make Lena his at night—on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real.

But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality if Chad can prove he’s the hero Lena needs night and day … forever.

I am loving this series soooo hard!!  I am so glad I signed up for that blog tour months ago.  I may have never found Sara without that tour.  Once again we have a female soldier as the heroine and she is awesome!  I love that Lena has a dog, very appropriately named Hero, too.  Sara did a great job injecting lots of fun and cute moments with Hero along with showing the unconditional love, loyalty, and sense of security he brought to Lena.  Chad is right up there with the sweetest (and sexiest) heroes I’ve ever read.  He makes it his mission in life to help Lena recover the part of herself she thought she’d lost.  I found myself with tears in my eyes several times while reading this book.  I couldn’t force myself to put it down once I started it.  I truly never wanted it to end.  This is a great series and I am eagerly awaiting the next book.

Review: Breathless For You

breathless-for-you-200x300 Breathless For You by Lexxie Couper

3.5 out of 5 Licks

When desire goes sky high, things get hot. Really hot.

Outback Skies, Book 1

The middle of the Outback seems the perfect place for city-bred Dr. Matt Corvin to recover from the beating life has given him. Working in Wallaby Ridge as a member of the Royal Flying Doctors is just what this doctor needs, until he finds himself paired with a pilot who’s every sexual fantasy that’s ever done barrel rolls through his head. She rekindles in him a desire for something he thought he’d never want again—connection.

Natacha Freeman was one medical exam away from RAAF fighter pilot status when her lungs royally screwed her over. Flying a medical plane in the Outback should have provided isolation to match her desolation. Instead, she’s stuck in a tiny plane with a nice guy who sends her hormones screaming full throttle.

Though Tash is jumping on the brakes with both feet, Matt’s not above using his thorough knowledge of the human body to change her mind. Until the dangerous reality of living in the Outback brings them crashing to the ground.

Warning: If gorgeous sexy doctors with incredible bedside manner and a dominating sexual side make you shudder with sheer orgasmic rapture, this book may be…wait for it…just what the doctor ordered.

Let’s start with the fact that there is a very brief appearance by a character named Kitty.  Now I have no idea if this Kitty is meant to be for me, but I always like to think it is.  lol  Ok back to the book.  Matt is a side character from Lexxie’s very popular Heart of Fame series.  You don’t need to read the book he is a part of to enjoy this story though, I haven’t read it yet and I still enjoyed it.  It always makes me happy to see residual characters get their stories told so I’m glad Matt found his happiness.  Tash quite literally has some heart stopping moments in this novella, but thanks to Matt she comes through relatively unscathed.  Her heart is a bit of a different story but Matt is willing to help her put that back together too.  Since this is a novella there isn’t a lot of time for a lot of character development or back story, but Lexxie manages to tell us enough for me to route for the characters which is always important.  The sex between them is hot and takes place outside in the middle of nowhere, but someone still manages to show up and eventually end the fun.  All in all this is a cute, quick read that will leave you breathless and waiting for the next book in this series.  I can’t wait to see where we go next!

Review: Reckless Nights

RecklessNights300-200x300 Reckless Nights by Karen Erickson

4 out of 5 Licks

Vegas Nights, Book 1

Reagan can’t believe her luck—and not in a good way. One minute she’s hanging out with her friends at an exclusive party in Las Vegas. The next, she’s attracted the attention of a famous actor. Not just any actor. Declan Carter, the man on which she used to—okay, might still—have a fangirl crush. Whose blue eyes leave her embarrassingly tongue tied.

All Declan wants is to meet a nice, normal woman who won’t use him as a stepping stone to fame. Something about Reagan tells him she could be that rare woman, and he follows his instinct to invite her back to his suite—where they proceed to have wild monkey sex. All. Night. Long.

What was supposed to be one night of no-regrets sex stretches out into a blissful weekend of two people who can’t get enough of each other. But when the glamour of Sin City wears off, they’re standing on the edge of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn a weekend fling into something lasting. Will they take the jump?

Declan is trying to make a big come back after finally deciding to end his wild days and going to rehab.  He wants Reagan but knows he has to give 100% to his new movie project so they walk away after their wild weekend and hope to meet back up again when he’s done filming.  He does eventually come to her and they have their romantic reunion.  This is a great, quick read that will leave you looking forward to more in this series.  Once Declan and Reagan hit the sheets the fire builds hot and fast.  Lot’s of sexy stuff going on between the two of them and it was sad to see the weekend come to an end.  The end is a bit abrupt but we get a happy ending.  I’m looking forward to the rest of the books in the series and I’ve got my fingers crossed for more of these two.  There is also a prequel to this book called Wicked Weekend.  It’s a fun freebie so make sure you get it too and see how these three friends landed an invite to the exclusive party!

Review and Contest: I Do!

I-Do!-Rachel-Gibson

Cover I Do! by Rachel Gibson

3 out of 5 Licks

In New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson’s newest novella, Vince Haven and Sadie Hollowell are headed to the altar, and all their friends are headed to Lovett, Texas, to join them for the party of the year.

But Becca Ramsey doesn’t have time for all that. Fresh out of beauty school, Becca’s all business … and the last thing she needs is bad boy Nate Parrish anywhere in her life.

In the past, Nate was trouble. He’s been trying to repair his reputation—heck, he’s even got just one girlfriend. The problem is, she isn’t Becca. Now Nate’s in a whole lot of hot water. He needs to get Becca from “I won’t” to “I do” … but how can he do that when she won’t even say “I might”?

Before you read this book I’m going to recommend you read the other books in this series before reading this novella.  I thought this book was part of another series, but I was wrong!  Oops!  lol  The book was fun, but I know I would have enjoyed it so much more if I were better acquainted with the couples that were mentioned.  Becca and Nate were the only new couple in this book and their parts were not even half the book.  I’m not opposed to the fact that they fell in love with each other so fast, but they only really spoke to each other about three times before they fell in love and it didn’t seem like he did much, if any talking during that time.  Overall the other couples had some sweet, funny moments and I definitely want to read the other books in this series, but I thought the relationship between Nate and Becca felt a bit forced.

Boys of Fall

Going-Long Going Long by Cari Quinn

3.5 out of 5 Licks

This time, he’ll need to hit all the right notes to win the woman he’s always loved…

Wade Bennett is used to coming in second to his seemingly perfect older brother. In high school, Colt was a star linebacker while Wade was the punter, an important job without all of the glory. When Charlene Martinez—the only girl Wade ever truly wanted—fell for Colt, Wade decided to take his chances with music and went on the road. Leaving behind his family, his best friend, Rafe, and Charlene, who had feelings for Wade she never allowed herself to feel.

Years in Nashville quickly hardened the dreamy guy who just wanted to sing and hang out with his dog, Melody. His success has given him more than enough money, even if he knows he’ll never be able to compete with his hometown hero big brother. But after Coach Carr’s heart attack, Wade comes home to help the man who helped him make the decision to chase his dreams all those years ago.

Now Wade wants to chase a new dream in his old hometown, especially since Charlene is single again after divorcing Colt. And Wade is no longer a boy unwilling to fight for what—and who—he needs.

I’m going to get this out in the open real fast-Wade frustrated the hell out of me!  I get that he grew up feeling as though he was living in his brothers shadow, but it sure sounds like he put himself there.  He wanted Charlene back in high school but never had the balls to act on it.  They were the best of friends and he just rolled over and watched her start a relationship with his brother.  Eventually he gets his head out of his ass but it sure takes him a while to figure it out.  On the flip side once he does take life by the horns things get super hot and oh so dreamy when he sings to her while doing dirty things.  I’m a sucker for music so him singing to her made my heart melt.  Charlene and Wade find some interesting places to get wild and I was a little surprised at her willingness to go at it like rabbits all over town and in public.  Romance on a timeline always brings out the crazy in both the hero and the heroine so I wasn’t surprised when eventually they had a tiff and each allowed the other to give up and walk away.  Thankfully Coach came to the rescue (as he’s prone to do) and helped Wade see the error of his ways.  The ending was really sweet.  I’m super excited that there are more books to come in this series.  So many people have been introduced and I want them all to get a happy ever after.  I also liked that Cari brought in a couple from one of her other books.  Jazz and Gray definitely made me want to read more about them.

Out-of-Bounds Out of Bounds by Erin Nicholas

5 out of 5 Licks

As star running back for his high school team, Jackson Brady led a charmed life—until the wild child pushed a little too far. And thanks to snitching goody two-shoes Annabelle Hartington, Jackson endured scandal, shame, and suspension from the team before the championship game. His ensuing downward spiral would have been far worse if not for Nicholas Carr, his high school coach and mentor.

Now, twelve years later, Jackson doesn’t think twice about returning to Quinn, Texas, to help out when Coach suffers a heart attack. It’s an opportunity to atone for past sins and prove he’s ready to give back to the close-knit community. And he knows just the person to help him—the same woman who brought him down all those years ago. A respected and beloved teacher, if Annabelle is willing to take a chance on him, everyone will know Jackson’s a new man.

But he’s not the only one who’s changed. Though she’s just as smart as he remembers, Annabelle is also sweet, kind, loyal—and hiding a surprisingly passionate woman behind her staid schoolteacher clothes. Suddenly proving himself to the town might be more difficult than he’d thought. Because while Jackson may have shed most of his wild ways, turns out nothing stirs his inner bad boy quite like Annabelle.

Ahhh Erin knows how to make a reader sigh with utter contentment at the end of a book.  Once again I was captured from the very start and couldn’t take my eyes off the words for one second.  Annabelle isn’t quite the goodie two shoes that Jackson sees her as.  He notices a couple small tattoos and is surprised to learn she has several more.  He’s even more surprised when he gets the chance to find them all.  I am a huge music freak I have a few treble clefs tattooed on me too so I was thrilled to find out that all of Annabelle’s tats are not only music related but have great meaning to her as well.  I’m also now debating an idea similar to her tats in my head.  Annabelle lets her wild streak show when she’s with Jackson.  They really are the perfect complement to each other.  They smooth out each others edges and make each other better people.  And that is something that makes a story so wonderful.  They both make a few mistakes along the way, but when they come together it is one of the sweetest moments ever!  Be prepared to shed a few happy tears.  I’m pretty sure Erin must get some kind of high off reader tears cause she sure does love to make us cry! lol  And be prepared for the shock of your life if you are an Erin Nicholas fan-there is no food play in this one!!  They do mess around in the kitchen though so that’s gotta count for something! ;)
