Review and CONTEST: Getting It All

Getting It All Getting It All by Erin Nicholas

Sapphire Falls Book 4

There’s nothing like summertime in Sapphire Falls and Tucker Bennett is looking forward to hosting his best friend’s four young sons for the next three months. This is their first trip to Tuck’s farm since their father’s passing, and he’s fully prepared to step up for the boys. He’s also thrilled by the instant attraction to their aunt Delaney. He’s only ever wanted three things in life—his farm, a wife and kids. He’s already got the farm. Now it looks like Fate has delivered the rest in one complete just-add-dirt-bikes-and-a-new-puppy package.

Delaney Callan is beyond grateful for Tucker’s help while she catches her breath from becoming a sudden surrogate mother to her nephews. And she’s not immune to the sexual tension bouncing between them. But with all her focus on not screwing everything up with her nephews, there’s no time for a relationship, especially with marriage-minded Tucker. Of course, a casual summer fling is something else. After all, it would be a shame to waste a perfectly good barn…

Casual is the last thing Tucker wants. He’s set on taking care of Delaney and the boys, while she’s determined to prove she can go it alone. But she didn’t count on Sapphire Falls, the adorable little town filled with the loving, impossible-to-ignore Bennett family, well-meaning friends and everything four little boys could ever wish for.

What’s Delaney to do when the most impossible-to-ignore Bennett of all shows her the difference between what she needs and what she wants…and he turns out to be both?

If you’re a fan of Booze, bonfires, proposal-inducing pastry and using hay bales as a horizontal surface, this story is for you.

O M G I love this series!!!!! I can’t get enough of Sapphire Falls.  Let me try to compose myself so I can at least write something meaningful about this book.  Tucker has to be one of the sweetest men in the world.  Delaney has taken on the task of raising her sister’s 4 kids after two heartbreaking losses to the family.  Tucker wastes no time telling Delaney what he wants but she’s not having it.  She wants to prove she can take care of herself and the boys, but Tucker just wants to show her that having friends and family around to help is not such a bad thing.  I loved watching these two burn up the barn (hey there are 4 kids in the house and this way they don’t have to be so quiet).  There is also a scene toward the beginning where Delaney is given free rein in the kitchen-free rein doesn’t mean quite the same thing to Tucker as it does to Delaney though.  I won’t spoil the surprise for you though.  I can’t wait for more in this series.  I hope it never ever ends.  I want Sapphire Falls weddings, babies, and grand-babies!!!!

“C’mon. How have you been, really? What’s been going on with you?” he pushed. I frowned at him and he frowned right back. “Liz, please.”

I groaned in defeat. “All right, I suck.”

“Why do you suck?”

“So very many reasons.” I pushed my hair back from my face—no more hiding. “Pregnancy sucks. It’s natural, my ass. I finally stop throwing up, but I’m tired all the time. Giving up coffee was horrendous. None of my clothes fit right because of these stupid breasts, and they ache constantly. I have to pee like every thirty seconds, and then to top it off, I cry every time the Healthy Hound ad comes on. It’s ridiculous”

Little wrinkles appeared either side of his nose. “You cry at a dog food ad?”

“Yes. The puppies jump all over each other to get to their mother and it’s just so beautiful, with their cute little tails wagging and everything.”

He just stared at me.

“I know its psycho, Ben. Believe me, I’m well aware of this.”

“Hey, it’s fine.” He covered a smile with his hand. Too late, the bastard.

“You try dealing with all these hormones going apeshit. Crap. Apeshoot.”

“Apeshoot?”

“I’m trying not to swear,” I explained. “You want the first word our child comes out with to be something bad?”

“No. Gotcha.” The man was incredibly bad at hiding a grin. “No swearing.”

Review and Contest: Broken by Cynthia Eden

Broken-Cynthia-Eden

BROKEN Broken by Cynthia Eden

5 out of 5 Licks

The first novel in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s sizzling LOST series introduces the Last Option Search Team, an elite unit that must protect the only surviving victim of a serial killer.

Ex-SEAL and LOST founder Gabe Spencer is accustomed to the unusual in his job. But when knockout Eve Gray steps into his office, he’s rattled. For the mysterious woman is a dead ringer for the heiress thought to be the latest prey of the serial killer who goes by the name Lady Killer.

When Eve awoke in an Atlanta hospital, her past was a blank slate. Then she recognized her own face in the newspaper and vowed to learn the truth. Determined to confront the nightmares hidden in her mind, she never expects to find a partner in Gabe.

As Gabe and Eve work together, their explosive attraction becomes irresistible. Gabe knows that his desire for Eve is growing too strong, bordering on a dangerous obsession, but nothing pulls him away from her. And when another Eve lookalike disappears, Gabe vows to protect Eve at all costs. While Eve may have forgotten the killer in her past, it’s clear he hasn’t forgotten her.

Another winner from Cynthia Eden!  I was hooked from the first sentence and didn’t put it down until I was done.  I loved the premise of this book and Cynthia did a great job with the mystery aspect of this book, I had it down to two people but was never sure which one it was until the end.  Each member of the LOST team has such an interesting past.  I feel like we got just enough info about each of them to make me crave more.  Cynthia is great at writing dark heroes.  If I didn’t know better I would think the hero was the bad guy at times.  Gabe’s intensity for Eve is borderline scary.  Eve feels just as strongly for him she just didn’t know if the cause is his willingness to help her or actual feelings.  I don’t want to giveaway anything, but this book is full of twists and turns that are sure to leave you dying for more.  This is a fantastic start to a new series and I can’t wait to read more.

Review: Protecting Fate

PF Protecting Fate by Katee Robert

4 out of 5 Licks

Fixer Sara Reaver is furious when she discovers that she’s not only been exiled to the country for her own safety, but she’s been assigned a bodyguard. Zebadiah “Z” Loreto may be her brother’s best friend, but he’s also one big, bad, and very sexy wolf of a man…and Sara’s determined to make him come out and play.

And oh, Z wants to play. But Sara Reaver is definitely off-limits and Z promised himself never to unleash his dark desires ever again. Still, he can see that she craves the harsh and sensual hand of control.

It will mean crossing professional and personal boundaries. Breaking their own rules. And they’ll both discover just what happens—for good or bad—when they relinquish complete control…

I am so glad I read Katee’s first book in the Serve series.  I really enjoyed Sara’s story.  I’m still not 100% sure what her job as fixer means but it landed her in some really hot water this time.  She finds herself being swept into protection by Z.  The first encounter between the two of them at Serve is full of sexual tension and I was surprised when Z just walked out.  It was no surprise that when they finally do hit the sheets, they nearly burn the house down.  The sex between them is full of kink and awesomeness.  While I did really enjoy this one I felt like it kind of fizzled out toward the end.  I was expecting something to happen with the people she pissed off but that just kind of fell to the wayside.  There was some drama toward the end, but it wasn’t what I was expecting to happen.  I’m really looking forward to checking out more books from Katee.  She is definitely going on my must buy list.

Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde Pre-release Blitz

silver bastard pre-release blitz

silver bastard coming soon

Meet Puck & Becca on April 7th!

Amazon US | Amazon UK | B&N | Kobo | iBooks

SILVER BASTARD

First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels.

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward–full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from… But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can’t ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her–the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants…

silver bastard pr 3

“The Longnecks—they’re the MC my stepdad hung around with—they kept a lot of club whores around. Do the Silver Bastards do that, too?”

“Yup,” she replied. “It’s a free country and the brothers bring guests here all the time. Some of them stick around, some of them don’t. Some find they aren’t as welcome as they thought.”

“Doesn’t that bother you?”

“Boonie’s dick is the only one that matters to me,” she replied, her voice matter-of-fact. “As for the women, I care less about who they’re sleeping with than how they act the rest of the time. Like I said, fuck with the sisters and you won’t last. Bridget won’t be back if she keeps this shit up.”

“Old ladies didn’t get to make those decisions in the Long- necks.”

Darcy smiled sweetly. “We don’t get to make those decisions in the Silver Bastards, either. Yet the right decisions still magically happen. Nobody knows how, really. Guess it’s just all our good karma coming back to us.”

My mouth dropped. Darcy winked.

“You think those men don’t need us?” she asked. “Boonie likes sleeping next to me. Gets cold and lonely when all the old ladies take a girls’ weekend in Seattle. Would be even colder and lonelier if we didn’t come back, and one time we forgot to for nearly a week. Fortunately things worked out and we found our way home again. Now things tend to work out faster.”

My eyes went wide.

“You serious?”

“Do I look like a woman who will eat shit?”

Point taken.

“Let’s get this trash out. I’m sure Puck will be looking for you  soon, and I want to make sure all the girls meet you first. That boy’s crazy about you—it’s cute. Like a pit bull crushing on a kitten.”

Review: If You Dare

IYD_cover-wLogo If You Dare by Cari Quinn

5 out of 5 Licks

He’ll help her speed right past her limits…if she dares.

Pop princess Peyton Pryor wants just one night to break out of the mold she’s been stuck in for way too long. Successful beyond her wildest dreams, she can’t help wanting more—to write her own music, to head into edgier territory, to have some fun. Particularly the naughty kind that doesn’t match her pristine, sanitized image.

An illicit joyride in a borrowed Porsche leads her straight to ex-Detective and current romantic suspense author Noah Keaton, who has been feeling itchy about his own mold lately. After turning his back on being a cop, he’s been on the straight and narrow for far too long. If Peyton’s hungry for experience, he’s just the man for the job. Because he’s hungry for her.

Maybe this time, one dare will become so much more…

Loved it!  This is the last book I have to review in the new Kindle Worlds Dare to Love series and it didn’t disappoint.  I really enjoyed the element of BDSM that was brought into this book.  It’s not heavy play but it does get super hot and use of the word Sir is involved.  *sigh*  Noah beats himself up a little more than I like my Doms to do.  He still feels guilty over a mistake he made when he was on the force and I don’t blame him for his feelings surrounding it.  Peyton just wants a chance at freedom.  What she doesn’t know is that being dominated by Noah will set her free in a way she can never imagine.  I really enjoyed watching Peyton dive into the BDSM world and the connection with Presley from Double Dare.  The piece of jewelry she has made for her sounds beautiful and of course Noah has to add his own to the mix.  I loved the epilogue.  It wrapped everything up nicely.  I’d love to read more about these two.

Review: Double Dare

DD_cover2-wDTL Double Dare by Taryn Elliot

4 out of 5 Licks

A blind date from hell turns into a dare that changes everything.

Jewelry designer Presley Warren is sick of spending every single night alone. The crushing weight of running her family’s business leaves little time for the designing she loves. It’s no surprise that dating is last on her to-do list. In a moment of weakness she agrees to let her best friend set her up.

In a funk, millionaire Vance O’Neal is dragged to the first home game of the season for the Miami Thunder. He literally runs into a gorgeous blond as soon as he walks into the stadium. She’s light and laughter and the first woman to pull at him in years. One problem—she’s already taken. In a twist of fate, he’s seated next to Presley at the game. Her date shows his true colors as a rude, self-involved jerk so Vance can’t help himself when the Halftime Kiss Cam pans onto them. He dares her to kiss him—in fact, he double dares her to take a chance on a stranger.

He’s convinced her to start with one night—now he wants a shot at forever.

I popped my Taryn Elliot cherry and boy am I glad I did!  Double Dare was flat-out FUN.  Presley is having a horrible time on her blind date, but is enjoying the small snips of conversation she’s been having with the guy in the seat next to her.  When the Kiss Cam rolls around and her date continues to ignore her, the man next to her takes advantage of the moment and dares her to kiss him.  Sound familiar?  There was a You Tube video that went viral not that long ago with a very similar situation.  I don’t know what happened after that video, but I sure hope Taryn’s version is close.  I don’t think even Vance could have predicted that daring the hottie next to him would result in her coming home with him, but he was certainly happy with that outcome.  Vance and Presley steam up the bedroom and take the time to get to know each other.  I am really impressed by how much story was put into this novella.  I really felt like I had a chance to get to know the characters which is usually very hard to do in such a short amount of time.  I really enjoyed Taryn’s writing style.  The sex scenes were hot and the emotion between the characters felt really genuine.  There were times when Presley annoyed me a bit, but given the stress she was under (mostly self-inflicted since she wouldn’t open up to her dad) I can see why she made some of the choices she did.  Vance is a little too perfect but I loved it.  He tried his hardest to support Presley and only wanted the best for her in every way.  Also even though this book is part of the Kindle Worlds Dare to Love series it can totally be read as a stand alone-although you should read all the books in the series cause they are good reads too.

Review: Twice As Daring

TAD_coverREVLogo1-682x1024 Twice As Daring by Sami Lee

4 out of 5 Licks

Publicist Abby Lehman likes her job—until she finds herself working as a glorified babysitter for cocky-as-the-devil NFL star Sam Cormack. Sam is unpredictable, unruly, impossible—and also impossibly sexy. It has taken all Abby’s willpower to keep from throwing herself at him like one of his groupies. When her boss insists she accompany Sam to a black tie restaurant opening, things heat up even further. And when she finds out Sam has also been lusting after her she throws caution to the wind and indulges in a hot tryst with him that threatens her career as well as her heart.

Sam knows he screwed up with Abby and curses his impulsive nature. Making love to her was something he’d wanted for a long time, but he should have taken things slower with her, made sure they got to know each other. Now she thinks he only wants her for sex, just when Sam’s realizing she’s the first woman to make him want the real deal in a long time.

Can he make her believe he’s ready to put his playboy days behind him and start something real with his Miss Right?

Sam is mad that he was given a babysitter.  So he made a few crazy, not so good choices doesn’t mean he has to be watched all the time.  The relationship between these two is strained at best.  But when she is forced to go to a formal function Sam decides to take a chance to see if she really hates him as much as she says.  Abby can’t believe that Sam had the nerve to send her such a skimpy dress after she said no, but that doesn’t stop her from wearing it.  The dress seems to be the changing factor for both of them.  After they have some naked time they both take a step back, but that doesn’t even last a day.  I saw what was coming a mile away, but it didn’t matter.  I wasn’t expecting the final reaction though so that surprised me.  I’m surprised at how natural their relationship felt even though it moved so fast.  It may be a novella, but you will feel like you’ve read a much longer book.  I really enjoyed this book.  It is a fun read that will have you laughing out loud.  Sami’s characters say the funniest things.  The Aussie sayings are the absolute best! I mean seriously: “Holy snappin’ duck shit” who says that?  lol

Pre-Release Blitz: Deep by Kylie Scott

Excerpt

His laughter, it didn’t really sound the smallest bit amused. “Christ. You’re done here.”

“Ah, no. I’m actually not. Now see, this is where we have a problem.” I folded my arms. Then unfolded them because like fuck I’d look defensive. He was the one in the wrong, not me. “You’re not prepared to take me, or my feelings, seriously. What you want is to hide away in Mr. Too Cool for Commitment land and just play with my affections when it suits you. Okay, I’ve accepted that. But none of that means it’s okay for you to come in here and act like you’re the boss of me. None of it.”

“That so?” he asked, leaning down so that we were almost nose to nose.

“That’s so, baby.” I play-punched him in the shoulder, which it should be noted, I barely came up to. Okay, so maybe the alcohol on a mostly empty stomach had made me slightly/lots braver/sillier. “So why don’t you take your little caveman jealous tantrum bullshit somewhere else. See, I do this funny thing I like to refer to as whatever the fuck I want. Understand?”

He just stared.

“And as pretty as you are with your beard and your muscles, you are too damn tricky and . . . complicated and shit for me.”

“I am?”

“Yes, you are. Are you finally seeing my point here?”

“You bet.”

“Excellent. So take your hotness elsewhere, kind sir. I want no part of it!” Huh. I had so told him. Drunken bravado was the best.
