Cover Reveal AND CONTEST: His Lover To Protect


His Lover To Protect

Out of Uniform, Book 3

Releasing September 7, 2015

He’s never met a challenge he couldn’t take…

Alexis Yeung did everything right….only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarred stranger.

Except, embittered former pararescuer Luke Jackson isn’t exactly a stranger. He’s supposed to keep an eye on Alexis without her knowing. Ending up in bed together was definitely not the plan. Now he’s chasing her (admittedly hot) ass across Europe, a game of cat and mouse that always ends with the two of them tangled up in the sheets.

Something in their scarred, damaged souls calls to each other. And God help them, the sex in unbelievably hot. But if Alexis discovers who Luke really is, he’ll lose the one thing that makes him feel whole…

See where it all began with book 1 of the Out of Uniform series, In Bed with Mr. Wrong.

His to Keep

Falling for His Best Friend


Kiss me, please kiss me, and make me forget all about the countless things trying to drag me under.

Luke froze, and for one eternal second she thought she’d misread his signals. But then his mouth crashed down on hers, erasing any chance of misinterpretation. His tongue speared between her lips, stroking along her tongue once, twice, a third time. She couldn’t fight back a moan as he raked his teeth over her bottom lip before sucking it into his mouth. The spark of attraction inside her burst into an all-out bonfire. Alexis shifted her grip, letting go of his shirt with one hand so she could twine her fingers through his longish blond hair. She pulled it sharply enough to make him groan against her mouth, and then he was kissing his way along her jaw and nipping her earlobe. “You taste so goddamn good, darlin’, like a Georgia peach. I can’t get enough of it.”

Review: Waiting For You

Waiting-for-You-highres Waiting For You by Mari Carr

3.5 out of 5 Licks

Sparks in Texas, book 2

How do you protect the woman you love…when the greatest danger is sleeping in her bed?

Sydney Sparks can’t remember a time when Chas wasn’t part of her life—from childhood playmates, to high-school sweethearts, to long-distance friends. Now, after twelve long years, Chas is leaving the Marines and coming home. Sydney’s thrilled to have him back on American soil, safe and sound, even if his return is doing funny things to her heart.

The second he stepped off the plane and locked gazes with Sydney, Chas refused to waste a minute more on their “just friends” status quo. Together again, it feels as if they were never apart, the love they’d shared as innocent teens now vastly more intense as adults—with a sexual hunger to match.

However, despite his newfound happiness, Chas can’t seem to shake the memories of his tours in the Middle East, of the firefights, the killing…the deaths of his friends. When the flashbacks grow stronger, Chas struggles to hide his increasing lack of control, terrified of losing everything he’d just regained—including Sydney.

Waiting for You was previously published as part of the Sweet Seduction box set.

This is definitely an emotional read. Chas returns from several tours in the military and Sydney is thrilled to have him back home.  He’s spent so much time away over the years that she wasn’t sure she still knew him, but he came home with a new mission.  He decided it was finally time to make her his.  But Chas is suffering from PTSD and after he accidentally hits Sydney he spends a lot of time beating himself up.  It was hard to watch them stumble through the aftermath, but in the end love is always worth the rough times.  This is a quick read that will have you looking forward to your next trip to Texas with Mari Carr.

TWO CONTESTS!!! Laird Wolf


Laird Wolf, Takhini Shifters #2

He’s a wolf in a kilt. That pretty much says it all…

Pulling off a rescue mission at a remote castle in Scotland should be an easy task for lone wolf Damon Black. He’ll flash some muscle, show a little Alpha power, and do whatever it takes to ease Addie MacShay’s fears. But the woman who throws herself into his arms and cries boyfriend is more intriguing than anticipated. The sexy she-wolf’s got more curves, more tantalizing scent, more of everything he desires.

Addie’s job cataloguing an estate at the Sterling-Wylde Manor is complicated by the ongoing discovery of new wills and the two creepy heirs who won’t leave her alone. But her fake boyfriend turns out to be a far greater threat—not only is he fun and flirtatious, he looks delicious in a kilt. She craves his touch, but with her empathic skills on overdrive, touch is the last thing she needs.

Damon’s fighting his unruly inner beast. Addie’s fighting their incredible sexual pull. They’ll both have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one.  Now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of both contemporary and paranormal stories, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well entertained.

Review: Black Gold

Black Gold Black Gold by Vivian Arend

4 out of 5 Licks

Takhini Wolves, Book 1

Their wolves are howling at the moon. Their human halves are on different planets.

Lone wolf Shaun Stevens’s automatic response to the words “happily ever after”?Kill me now. Yet with all his friends settling down he’s begun to think there may actually be something to this love-and-roses crap.

One thing’s for sure: his dream mate will have to out-cuss, out-spit and out-hike him. So he never expected the one to push his forever button would be a blue-blooded Southern debutante with a voice as dark and velvety as her skin.

When Gemmita Jacobs steps off the plane in Whitehorse, Yukon, it’s about more than her caribou research project. It’s her declaration of independence from an overprotected upbringing. Except there’s something in the air she can’t quite define—something that unexpectedly rouses her mating instincts.

Moments after their eyes lock, the deed is done—and done thoroughly. When the pheromone dust settles, though, all the reasons they don’t belong together become painfully clear.

It’s enough to make a wolf learn a whole new set of cuss words…

Warning: Two strong wolves getting exactly what they deserve. Includes wilderness nookie, shifters being naughty in public places, the Midnight Sun as a canopy for seduction and grizzly shifters on the loose. Oh, and don’t forget the sarcasm.

Man I love Vivian Arend and I love paranormal books!  What’s not to love about paranormal?  You get to completely suspend reality and literally anything can happen.  And when it comes to authors who write paranormal Vivian Arend is second to none.  She has this way of kidnapping me and throwing me into a story before I even know what’s happening.  lol  I always love coming back to Vivian because she never disappoints.  I always know I’m going to get a great story with lots of fun, laughter, and some smoking hot sex.  Gem and Shaun dive right into mate territory, but she puts the brakes on it almost immediately once he starts talking about her moving up north.  She is determined to prove she can manage on her own.  I loved these two both in human and wolf form.  They were so much fun and I was never really sure where they were going to go.  Gem is pretty moody and it was hard to tell if she was going to be nice or pissy with Shaun at any given moment.  Shaun wasn’t perfect either though.  He shoved his foot into his mouth multiple times but he was really trying hard.  I really loved Evan and Caroline too.  They added a great amount of fun and sexual tension to the book too.  I felt like the ending fizzled out just a bit for me, but overall I really enjoyed this start to a new series.  I’m anxious to see what happens with Evan in the future and I hope to see more of Gem and Shaun in the future books as well.

Review: Her Stand-In Boyfriend

herstandinboyfriendmed Her Stand-In Boyfriend by Kelly Jamieson

4 out of 5 Licks

This boyfriend business is about to get a whole lot more personal…

Event planner Lexi Mannis has a busy life in Chicago – too busy to have a boyfriend. For special occasions, she has her Stand-In Boyfriend, Mac Northrop. Mac offers (almost) all the perks of a real boyfriend – furniture assembly, a date to big events, and someone to cook for. But they’ve never been “with benefits”…until one wickedly hot night crosses the line.

Mac’s been in love with Lexi for ages. He knows he should probably end it, but dammit, he just can’t. When things get deliciously down and dirty, Mac is certain that he’s made the leap out of the friend zone…until Lexi decides she wants to remain friends. With benefits.

What Lexi doesn’t know is that she’s running out of time. And if she won’t promote Mac to Real Boyfriend, she might just lose her Stand-In Boyfriend to someone else…

Another great book from Kelly Jamieson.  A classic friends to lovers tale where the man has been in love for a while and it took the girl a while to figure it out.  Sometimes us women can be so blind to what is right in front of us.  After a crazy night out Lexi and Mac fall into bed and it is just as amazing as Mac always thought it would be.  This was a quick read and once Lexi got her head out of her ass I really liked her.  lol I think it was good that her friends called her out and made her really think about her relationship with Mac.  I don’t think she was doing any of it intentionally and it all mattered more because of his feelings for her.  Of course he shouldn’t have withheld so much for so many years, but that’s the way of things sometimes.  They really are great together and their history makes it so much stronger.  I’m very excited to see that this will be a series of books.  The only other thing I could have asked for was an epilogue. We got a happy ending but I always love getting a glimpse into the future, but hopefully we will see more of Lexi and Mac in future books.

Finding Master Right Review and CONTEST!!!

Cover Finding Master Right by Sparrow Beckett

5 out of 5 Licks

Dominant, crop-wielding men are all Kate dreams about, but how far is she willing to go? 

Kate wants a man who will take charge—she just needs to find the right guy. Fortunately, her friend is throwing a kinky Halloween party with a guest list loaded with sexy, available men. That’s where she meets Banner.

Dark and intense, Banner’s not just a Dominant, he’s a Master looking for a slave. Kate isn’t interested in something that extreme, but when he offers to help her find the perfect Dom, while training her to be a flawless submissive, she’s glad to have a matchmaker and protector.

Banner knows they’re not compatible, yet something about Kate is impossible to resist. Once he finds her the right Dom, will he be able let her go?

O M F G! Go buy this right now!  I would stop there if I thought I could get away with it, but I guess I can give you more.  Obviously I loved this book.  Once I started nothing else mattered, I ignored everything around me (my poor family-I’ll send Sparrow the therapy bill for my son lol) and I tried to ignore sleep, but my body wouldn’t allow that.  I’ve read a lot of BDSM over the years, but this is the first book where the hero (or in this case Master) was looking for a slave.  Much like Kate, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  As I continued to read it was obvious that Banner and Kate were hot for each other.  This is a classic tale of two people fighting what is so clear to every one around them and that always makes for an interesting story.  The sex is explosive and so freaking hot.  I felt like the authors did a great job of mixing a lot of sex with a lot of dialogue.  I was engrossed in the characters almost immediately. It was fun with just the right amount of drama (and a few tears) to keep me desperate to know what was going to happen next.  I am already so engrossed in this series and we are only on book 1.  I can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves for us next.  I know it’s going to be awesome.  I’m looking forward to seeing a lot more from Sparrow Beckett in the future.

Review: A Santini Takes the Fall

takes_450x2 A Santini Takes the Fall by Melissa Schroeder

4 out of 5 Licks

the Santinis series, Book 9

A man avoiding his destiny.

Anthony Santini is happy with life. The former Marine is now working a dream job for NCIS in a dream location: Hawaii. He’s watched his cousins and now his siblings fall into the Santini Curse and that is not for him. Not yet. He’s happy to play the field and enjoy life. It still doesn’t stop his cousin’s wife from trying to fix him up.

A woman avoiding love.

 Lalani Hawkins has had enough heartache to last a lifetime. The professional dancer isn’t looking for love and she definitely doesn’t need a man like Santini in her life. After the worst blind date in history, she thinks she’ll never see him again.

For two people who want to avoid each other, Lalani and Anthony can’t seem to achieve that. Each time they meet, Lalani falls a little more under the Santini spell, and for Anthony, he is drawn to the vivacious dancer. But when Anthony senses her hesitation to commit, he starts to formulate a plan. Because when a Santini man decides he’s found his mate, there is no stopping him.

That’s right everyone, it’s time for another Santini to take the fall.  :)  In this book we get Anthony keeping up with the Santini tradition of fighting the crazy attraction between him and Lalani.  He comes across as an ass the very first time he meets her so typical Santini behavior. lol In this book they both fight each other a bit, but eventually they can’t stay away from each other and decide to give into temptation.  Of course all this did was fan the flames between them and now there is a five alarm fire raging between them and neither of them is sure what to do with it.  Eventually Anthony makes a colossal miscalculation, but in the end he does the right thing and begs for forgiveness.  This is a wonderful addition to the Santini legacy.  Also even thought this is part of a series it can be read as  standalone, but it’s better if you get to know all the Santinis cause the family experience is so much fun.

Review and Contest: To Tempt a SEAL


To Tempt a Seal_Cover To Tempt a SEAL by Sara Jane Stone

4 out of 5 Licks

Sin City SEAL’s #1

For the first time in her life, social worker Lucia Lewis is ready to live. And the masquerade ball in Las Vegas is just the place to find a ridiculously hot guy to complete her wicked to-do list. The only rule? Her elegant Venetian mask—which conceals the scars that have always held her back from the life she deserves—stays on.
Navy SEAL Cade Daniels heads to Vegas on a mission to keep his best friend’s little sister out of trouble. Except the woman he’s sent to find is all heat and flame…and perfectly capable of handling herself. And him. But the moment Lucia’s mask slips, the need to heal her, body and soul, is complete and absolute temptation.

But revealing himself could cost him the one thing he isn’t willing to risk…his heart.

I found Sara Jane Stone about a year ago and was excited to see more from her.  I’ve always enjoyed military romance and Sara is starting a brand new series with this one.  Lucia wants to take a chance in Vegas and have a random hook up.  She’s worked really hard to feel better about herself and decided a wild night fulfilling her fantasies was the best way to help make that happen.  She had no idea her sister asked Cade to keep an eye out for her and not let her do anything crazy.  Cade takes one look at Lucia and prayed she was the one he was supposed to watch out for.  He decided he was going to keep her closer than Natalie asked, but couldn’t take the chance to pass up a night with Lucia.  Of course eventually Lucia finds out the truth and heads back home.

Overall I really enjoyed this book.  There were some things that I felt could have been explored a little further.  Lucia’s weight loss and scars seemed to have a huge impact on her life but after the first few chapters they really weren’t brought up again in detail.  I feel like she might have been a little more cognizant of those two things in particular throughout the book.  The attraction between these two can’t be denied though.  I really enjoyed that Cade made her feel so attractive and happy.  The fantasy lists were sexy and lots of fun.  I laughed and smiled a lot while reading this book.  I can’t wait to see what comes next for this series.  I’m guessing we are going to get the sisters story next and I’m excited to see where it goes.

“Turn around,” he murmured as he moved behind her. His fingers toyed with the straps of her red dress and lowered them down her shoulders. “And tell me what you see.”

“People.” She gasped as he drew her dress down to her waist, revealing her black lace bra to the night air. Her nipples pebbled, begging for his touch. “Everywhere.”

Her breasts were left wanting as his hand moved to her legs and lifted her skirt until it bunched at her waist. A thrill ran through her. All those people below, and yet she was on the verge of losing herself in this moment. Being here, with him, felt wild and wanton, so far removed from the walls holding her trapped in her life back home.

“When you come…” His fingers teased the edge of her lace thong, and she spread her legs, opening for him. “When you scream my name, will they hear you?”

“No,” she gasped. His finger slipped beneath the edge of her underwear. “Maybe. I don’t care.”

“Does this fit your fantasy? Is this what you want?” he demanded. “Tell me.”

She turned to face him and looped her arms around his neck. His hand moved over her, and his fingers ran down her backside, touching, exploring. Her hips rocked against him, demanding friction.

“I want you,” she said. “Make me scream your name. Over and over. I don’t care if they hear. I want the fantasy. Please.”

Review: Adored

Adored Adored by Lexi Blake

4.75 out of 5 Licks

Masters and Mercenaries, Book 8.5

A man who gave up on love

Mitch Bradford is an intimidating man. In his professional life, he has a reputation for demolishing his opponents in the courtroom. At the exclusive BDSM club Sanctum, he prefers disciplining pretty submissives with no strings attached. In his line of work, there’s no time for a healthy relationship. After a few failed attempts, he knows he’s not good for any woman—especially not his best friend’s sister.

A woman who always gets what she wants

Laurel Daley knows what she wants, and her sights are set on Mitch. He’s smart and sexy, and it doesn’t matter that he’s a few years older and has a couple of bitter ex-wives. Watching him in action at work and at play, she knows he just needs a little polish to make some woman the perfect lover. She intends to be that woman, but first she has to show him how good it could be.

A killer lurking in the shadows

Assigned to work together on an important case, Mitch and Laurel are confronted with the perfect opportunity to explore their mutual desire. Night after night of being close breaks down Mitch’s defenses. The more he sees of Laurel, the more he knows he wants her. Unfortunately, someone else has their eyes on Laurel and they have murder in mind.

These short novellas are at their best when you feel like you have just finished an epic novel, and Lexi is the master of them. She is able to weave a tale that has you in its grasp until you get to the end. The world around you stops existing, and you live for the story alone.  Like the full-length novels in the Maters and Mercenaries series, Adored is bloody brilliant.  But honestly I haven’t read anything by her that I haven’t loved. I’d even read dino porn, if she wrote it… hehehe

There are some men so broken by their past that you want to fight for them and knock them on the head all at the same time. Mitch is one of the worst of that category.  Not only has he never had a successful relationship with a woman, but his parents caused so much hurt to him as well.  He wants Laurel with every fiber of his being, but he doesn’t think he is young or good enough for her. Fate just might force his hand though.

Laurel may be a submissive, but she is no pushover. She is feisty, and willing to give Mitch the fight of his life to get their HEA. She is truly a woman I would love to have as a great friend. She fits in well with the other women in this series. I love that Lexi always writes these strong women. Often times when you hear the label submissive, people think weak willed. That is so far from the truth, and these women show it big time.

I highly recommend this story and the rest of the Masters and Mercenaries series. You will not be disappointed with a single one. Hope y’all enjoy them as much as I have.

Love Between the Bases #1
Jennifer Bernard
Releasing May 26th, 2015
Avon Romance


Jennifer Bernard, the USA Today bestselling author of the Bachelor Firemen series, scores another homerun with a brand-new series about sexy, single baseball players.

Playing for the Kilby Catfish is hotshot pitcher Caleb Hart’s last chance to salvage his career after a major league meltdown. But the day of his opener with the minor league team, Caleb strikes out with the gorgeous woman who is delivering a petition to run the unruly Catfish out of town. Now to stay in the lineup, Caleb will need to score big with the feisty brunette he can’t keep out of his thoughts.

After the nasty lies Sadie Merritt’s rich ex-boyfriend spread about her all over town, she’s lucky to have a job at all. She can’t afford to screw it up by falling for the player who is supposed to be helping her change the image of the fun-loving Catfish. But that’s easier said than done when Caleb’s voice alone is enough to make her pulse race. And when he surprises her with a mind-blowing kiss, she knows there’s no turning back.

Teaser #2



Caleb made her lose her head, plain and simple.

Sadie rested her forehead against his chest, amazed all over again by the firmness of his toughened muscles. The heat of his body contrasted with the cool water in the most heavenly way. “Maybe I didn’t think this all the way through.”

“Are you telling me a dumb baseball player got the better of a brilliant future law student? Nah.” He bent his head so he could nuzzle her hair. “You smell nice. Like water lilies.”

She smelled hot man, mixed with lake water and sun-baked mesquite. Somehow they’d drifted away from the gravelly edge, so the stench of mud wasn’t as prominent. She felt so dreamy and secure, held tight in Caleb’s arms as they floated aimlessly in the lake. He grinned down at her, the light reflected off the lake water turning his eyes a soft, clear blue. Sun glinted in his hair, spangled with crystal drops of water. He really was a remarkably beautiful man. Everything seemed to still while she soaked in the details of his powerful physique, his rawboned handsomeness, the flash of vulnerability in his eyes.

She could really lose herself in him. Completely and utterly. Never before had she felt anything close to that.

“Dream on,” she told him, and flipped out of his arms. She dove under the surface, letting the slide of water through her hair and across her body wash away the effects of that alarming moment.

She’d always loved to swim, and it took only a few moments to put distance between herself and Caleb. But he wasn’t a professional athlete for nothing, and within moments he was splashing in her wake.

Shrieking with breathless laughter, she flung herself backward, as if onto a watery couch. He grabbed an ankle, and she flipped to her stomach, kicking hard. But it was no use; she felt herself being inexorably pulled toward him, his wonderfully big hands reeling her in.

And then there she was, snuggled against his chest again. It rose and fell with his rapid breaths. “There, that’s better,” he said with satisfaction, the words rumbling against her ear. “I kinda like this whole fishing thing.”

“No fair, I got distracted,” she protested, turning her body in the circle of his arms so she could see his face. Water streamed from his hair, down his neck to his wide shoulders. His eyelashes clung together, so his eyes looked bluer than ever. “I’d forgotten how much I love swimming in this lake.”

“It’s starting to grow on me too. Or at least something is.”

She giggled, and then, as a grin split his face, started laughing. As he watched her something shifted in his expression. His goofy smile vanished, replaced by an intent, hungry look. His head lowered, eyes glittering. The rest of the world receded, so only his face remained, coming closer and closer to hers, his mouth reaching for her …

Oh wow. He was going to kiss her.

And then he was kissing her. His lips burned against hers, sending pure shock throughout her body. Kisses didn’t feel like that. They didn’t turn your lips to fire, they didn’t liquefy your lungs so you could barely breathe. They didn’t make you dizzy.

She pulled away with a gasp, still in his embrace, their faces close enough so she felt his quickened breathing. Caleb looked just as stunned as she felt, his eyes gone dark and gray as a hurricane. For a long moment the two of them just stared at each other, poised on the edge of the unknown. Water lapped against her hips, and a breath of air kissed her shoulder. Everywhere her body touched Caleb’s, heat seared.

And then they were on each other again. He seemed to consume her, exploring her mouth with long sweeps of his tongue that left sparkling trails of heat in their wake. He tasted so wonderful, like summer days, like fireflies and bicycling down dusty back roads, like every time she’d laid on her back in a meadow and dreamed about the future.

Little whimpers rose from her throat. She pulled her mouth from his, her cheek brushing across his stubbly chin, its roughness sending more shocks through her. His grip loosened and she slid down his body until she stood on the lake bottom, pressed against him from head to toe. The huge bulge in his briefs made her feel a little faint.

“Sweet Jesus,” he whispered as she nibbled on his jaw. She couldn’t help it; she wanted to eat him up. “You’re making me crazy. We can’t do this here.”

“Shh.” She didn’t want to talk. She wanted this all-consuming, crazy conflagration that she’d never even imagined before. Tugging at his shoulders, she rose on tiptoe, brushing her lips against his again. With a heartfelt groan, he gave in.
