Once In A Lifetime 

(Club Aries #4)

by Jordan Ashley

From Goodreads

Vincent D’Artino was the tall, dark, and handsome man Mallory Benson had always lusted after. Forget the fact that the man knew how to move his body to seduce her, he was fun and easy to laugh with, everything she was looking for in a man. Vincent considered himself a deadbeat with a dead end job and no prospects for the future. He didn’t want kids, marriage, and he had no “dream job” like his brothers. That was until Mallory came into his life and with one massage unlocked the doors he’d slammed shut eleven years ago.

Skeletons in his closet rattled far too loudly for his comfort, bringing up fears he’d rather forget, making him pull away from Mallory. A different fear takes hold of him when he gets the phone call that she was in a car accident. Would it be too late to win her heart? After all, women like her only came along once in a lifetime.

10712704_290754584464255_4349710857729671327_nJordan Ashley lives in a tourist trap near the lake in Ohio where the winters are like a ghost town and colder than she cares for, and the summers are crowded and the traffic sucks.

A divorced mom of three children, cat owner to a spoiled rotten Mainecoon, and soul mate to a self proclaimed werewolf, she spends most of her time devoted to them. As a teenager before the ‘hellions’ were born she found these voices in her head that just wouldn’t quiet and so began her love for writing. She listened to every word and finished her first novel before she was eighteen. She didn’t embrace her ‘naughty’ side until her marriage began to get rocky and suddenly many other options existed for her writing.

She found comfort in these new worlds that opened up before her, and found an outlet in them during the harshest parts of the separation. Now that her dream of being published has been brought to reality she cannot wait to reveal all these crazy characters to the masses, hoping they will love them as much as she does.

Jordan’s passion is her writing, but she also enjoys getting lost in fantastic worlds on TV. Her favorites include Game of Thrones,Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Once Upon a Time, and Supernatural. She is inspired by people in her life, and situations she or her friends find themselves in. She also has a secret (not so secret) addiction to Facebook and coffee – which she takes in 16oz mugs with inspirational quotes on them.

Book Spotlight Final

Nailed To The Wall

(Powertools #5)

by Jayne Rylon

From Goodreads

The crew is back and they’re dirtier than ever.

Five sexy men with a penchant for love and lust in any variation have formed a crew. They work hard and play harder—together. Though their partnership began in construction, renovating houses and selling them for a mint, they’ve formed a bond around their shared goal to provide women, and each other, with the ultimate sexual experience.

Over the past year, as each member discovered his soul mate—or two—they expanded the reach of their circle, lighting up their nights along with their souls. Monogamous relationships and the desire to start families threaten to put their libertine revelry on the back burner. Will the passion that bonded them fade away? How will the new crew wives cope with the complex relationship the men will always cherish and crave?

Determined to prove they stand by their men, the women decide it’s time to flex some muscle and give the crew a dose of girl power. They collude to take the guys as their horny hostages, using some big guns: boudoir photos, a pillow fight and a calculated foray into partner swapping. But will they have the guts to go through with their plans?

Warning: By Book Five in this series, fans will attest that anything goes in the crew. Be prepared for ménage in every flavor—m/f, f/f, mfm, fmf, and more—along with a slew of that’s what he said jokes. No throwing tomatoes at the author, please!

REVIEW: Cuffed at Midnight by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

Cuffed At Midnight

(Countermeasure:  Bytes of Life #3)

by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

4 Hearts

From Goodreads

Trevor and Cassandra Bauer’s romance continues to burn even after a near death, their wedding, working cases for the NSA, and their own personal investigation into the disappearance of Trevor’s parents. Trevor’s birthday is on the horizon and Cassandra is beating her head against the keyboard trying to find the right gift. Inspiration finally hits in the form of a house-warming gift from a friend. Little does Trevor know what surprise awaits him at the stroke of midnight…

My Review Final

Holy Hot birthday presents! Cuffed at Midnight is a companion novella to the Countermeasure series by the fabulous writing duo of Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. For anyone that has ever read a book and just wondered what happens next these companion novellas are the perfect solution. I am loving the Bytes of Life companion books. 

This book is narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds. I thoroughly enjoy Tim’s narration of Trevor. He does an equally good job with Cassie. And kudos to him for reading these hot and spicy scenes so well. There are times that I can read a good sex scene, but listening to it is uncomfortable. Not in this case at all. So good!

In Cuffed at Midnight Cassandra is at a loss for what to get Trevor for his birthday. This is his first birthday with them as a couple and she wants to make it special and memorable. And boy does she. Expect edible body oils, cuffs, and lots of down and dirty sex. Trevor’s reaction to his gift was hugely intoxicating. I swear my ears were sweaty by the time I was done listening to this story.

Cammie has had one hell of a night. Her long-time abusive boyfriend pushed her to the limits and then a freaking wolf hit her car. While clutching a bag of frozen peas to her swollen eye she manages to rescue the wolf and make it home. But what’s she do with it after that?

Ian can’t believe his luck. After a stupid decision he’s been run out of every shifter territory he’s entered. Hoping Coyote Bluff would be different seems to have been his downfall. After a bunch of coyotes chase him through the night he finds himself being coddled by a tempting woman. His canine half is already in love with her.

Cammie’s ex comes calling, Ian’s found out by the local Alpha and the town seems bent on keeping them apart. Can they fight against everyone at once to find happiness together?

Excerpt Final

He’d found a few other women that sent the same impulses through him, but he’d never had one of them turn down his advances. It almost made him want to push her, force her to see they were meant to be together. The way her eyes had moved over him in the beginning had been torture. She’d caressed him with her gaze, touching him and heating his skin as she moved her glances across his body.

He found it funny that she created clothing for him. He knew, could smell, the effect his body had on her. He’d watched the blush creep across her cheeks as she’d looked him over. He just didn’t know what to do about it. Did he push her?

As they walked he’d paid attention to her emotions, letting them flow over him like a heavy rain. He was partially connected to her mind through the dream-sharing and he could sense many of her thoughts. She was confused and definitely aroused. If she was fighting the mutual attraction even in a dream there was very little he could do to sooth her. At least her nightmare had stopped the moment he’d touched her mind. He hadn’t even seen what had caused her to whimper in the first place.

She stopped suddenly and he nearly plowed into her back. She whipped around, glaring at him. “You said you’re a shifter, right? I saw you change from a wolf to ‘this’.” The look of irritation that followed her hand sweep forced him to swallow a chuckle. She was definitely not what he had expected, but her bluntness was endearing.

“Yes. I’m a wolf shifter. Why? Do you have questions? Would you like to sit and chat for a while?” He wanted to get her stationary so he could study her, perhaps tempt her into kissing him. “You could conjure a seat or two and we could rest, talk?”

He caught the slight scent of arousal again as she looked him over. She didn’t want to admit it, but she found him tantalizing. She quickly brought her eyes back to his, but he could see the embarrassment and heat hiding in their depths. He grinned and watched the blush deepen.

“Okay, let’s sit. You can explain how you shift, and I’ll try to figure out how I pulled you together.” She closed her eyes, furrowed her brow and squeezed her small hands into fists. He watched her and grinned. She was so adorable. His eyes widened slightly when a beautiful wrought-iron bench materialized next to her. “There. Sit.” She motioned to the other end of the bench as she perched on the end closest to her. She crossed her ankles and looked at him expectantly.

We are so excited to bring you the Release Day Launch for Laura Kaye’s JUST GOTTA SAY! JUST GOTTA SAY is a 17K-word erotic menage short story. JUST GOTTA SAY will be $.99 and available in print!!

Just Gotta Say

Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** Kobo

Just Gotta Say is a super sexy friends-to-lovers story and a contemporary ménage a quatres. Here’s the blurb:

Callie Davis stumbles upon two of her three male roommates in a surprising, molten-hot midnight tryst and discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. Desire to play with them grips her, and she can’t stop fantasizing about having multiple men, particularly her three long-time best friends.

Callie is thrilled when a guys’ night out gives her the perfect opportunity to recreate her fantasy, with the help of a threesome porn video and a bag of sex toys. That is, until Lucas, Jack and Noah return early and catch her in the act. More than anything, the guys want to make her fantasy come true. But Callie has a secret, and she can’t help wondering if being with all three men will risk the future she’s always wanted with one of them.

As three strong sets of hands caress and undress her, Callie surrenders to desire, because sometimes you just gotta say…yes.

Excerpt Final

The set-up: Callie’s most secret fantasy was just unexpectedly revealed to her three male roommates…

The invitation he laid out for her—the invitation to be with them, to act out this fantasy for real with them—was completely outside anything she imagined possible.

She sat for a long moment, still mostly curled into herself. Her gaze lit on the rough bobbing of Jack’s Adams apple as he swallowed. His apparent case of nerves eased hers. A little. Soft, sandy-colored strands brushed against her forehead. Her nose filled with the scent of him, all night air and masculinity.

Callie took a deep breath, her body remembering her unfulfilled arousal even as her brain struggled to keep up. “What are you saying, Jack?” she whispered, buying herself time to think and needing him to spell it out.

One hand stroked her back while the other combed her hair off the side of her face. “I’m saying”—he nibbled at her ear, but this time his lips lingered, his warm exhalation caressing her skin—“that the three of us want to bring that fantasy to life for you. If you want.”

Every nerve ending tingled with the promise of what he offered. Her heart rose from where it had plummeted into her gut and now hammered against her chest. Images of the three of them kissing her, fucking her, swamped her brain. Blood roared through her ears. “Are you teasing me?”

“Look at me,” he said, sliding his large hand under her cheek.

The commanding press of his skin on hers skittered electrical charges down her neck to her breasts. Her nipples hardened. She acquiesced and sat up just enough to face one of her three dearest friends.

“We want to do this for you.” He quirked the sexiest of crooked smiles and shrugged with one shoulder. “You know we’d be good together.”

She didn’t know whether his “we” meant her and him or the four of them. An encouraging voice in her mind said both interpretations were true.

He cupped her neck, his grasp comforting and reassuring, and brushed his lips against her right cheekbone. Her right eye. Her forehead. Tilting his head to the other side, he repeated the action against her left eye, the apple of her left cheek. She gasped when his last kiss fell on that tender, hollow spot just below her ear.

“What do you want, Callie? Whatever you want, we want. Always.”

ARC REVIEW: Delicate Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

Delicate Ink Cover

Delicate Ink

(Montgomery Ink #1)

by Carrie Ann Ryan


4-5 hearts (1)

From Goodreads

On the wrong side of thirty, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.

Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her—in more ways than one.

Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.

My Review Final

Let Carrie Ann Ryan introduce you to uber swoon worthy tat master Austin Montgomery! I totally adored super sexy Austin,especially the fact that he is on the cusp of turning forty. Since I am middle aged I really love reading about older, sexy heroes that don’t have me felling like I am some cradle robber when I fantasize about them. There are so many qualities that I love about Austin but what has endeared me the most about him is his genuine love for his family. They mean everything to him. It is so refreshing to see someone who puts their family first.

Like many single people around his age, Austin is suddenly feeling the need to settle down and have a family before he gets too old. Having just broken up with his recent girlfriend, and no other prospects in sight, it feels like he is never going to fulfill that dream. That is until Sierra Elder walks into Montgomery Ink’s door one morning. This Boulder transplant, who comes with her own set of baggage, doesn’t exactly hit it off with Austin right off the bat. And despite the less than warm and fuzzy first impression, Sierra can’t help but be attracted to Austin and vice versa. But ghosts in her past have left her skittish when it comes to another relationship, and it will be up to Austin to chip away at her defenses to see if they can both find the happiness they have been looking for.

Kudos to Carrie Ann Ryan on Delicate Ink! Ink Inspired and Ink Reunited precede Delicate Ink. While it isn’t totally necessary to read these books first, it might help you better understand who some of the characters are, especially Shep and Shea. It should be noted that Delicate Ink contains some mild BDSM elements as part of the story. I loved all three of these books with their interesting characters and storylines and I am definitely looking forward to Tempting Boundaries which comes out in December!

REVIEW: Kissed By A Demon Spy by Sharon Kay


Kissed by a Demon Spy

by: Sharon Kay


3 Hearts

From Goodreads

This novella is a companion piece to the Solsti series and can be read as a stand-alone.

Kidnapped as a teen and forced into a life of sexual slavery, Garnet vowed long ago to do whatever she could to spare others her fate. When karma comes full circle with an offer of freedom for her and her young son, she jumps at the chance.

Masquerading as a village innkeeper, Aden keeps his espionage work secret from the gentle pixies he lives among. Using his skills to prevent a group of vicious demons from attacking the innocent, his world is draped in mist, shadow, and danger.

Steeped in shame, Garnet is loath to share her past with Aden. But Aden senses a sweet, loyal strength in her that no amount of horror can erase. His dangerous work is the opposite of the stability Garnet craves. Yet Aden’s patience and strength make him the hero she never had. When the enemy targets them, Garnet and Aden realize that honesty is the truest form of courage.

My Review Final

I don’t think Aden could have been any more perfect for Garnet. From the moment his eyes fall on her, there is a connection that he is loathe to break. There is something about her that captures him and forces him to step outside of his comfort zone and do what ever he can to help. Garnet is just as perfect for him. Her genuine innocence and inner light shines even after everything she has been through. They are two halves of the same soul.

Oh sweet lord, Garnet. Don’t let her innocence and love of life fool you. She was one strong woman, to endure everything she had been through. But despite her life, she never wavered and did what she had to in order to survive. She was a very intelligent woman. She understood her place and what went on in her world, but she never faltered. She put others before herself, and in the end, she was rewarded with the most amazing, loving man. I really felt for her. And I felt with her. When she saw her old home for the first time in forever, I felt like I was seeing it through her eyes. She was a  beautiful woman inside and out and was genuinely kind and loving. She was scared and timid at times, but the strength and protection she got from Aden made her stronger than she ever was. She trusted him in a way she had never thought possible, and that trust and his patience was all she needed to heal. She really became a magnificent woman because of him, and their love was nothing short of wondrous.

Sweet, sweet Aden. He was definitely a man you wanted around. Not only because he is sex on legs, but because he is, in every sense, a warrior. He protects everyone he can, even more so those he holds dear. He loves life and is willing to learn. And most of all, he understands. When he sees what Garnet is living through and finally is able to protect her, he truly gives her the time and patience she needs in order to heal. He never pushes too much, is man enough to know what she is and is not ready for, and most of all loves her with a passion that is all-consuming. He protects her fiercely, and loves her completely, and is truly a man worthy. He was laid-back and enjoyed what life had to offer. He saw beauty in things others did not, and he saw strength in Garnet when she did not see it herself. He embraced her as a woman, loved her as herself, and made both of them complete.

I loved Aden and Garnet together. I honestly cannot get over how amazing Aden was. He truly owned the book for me. There was nothing he did that I did not like. He was sweet when he wanted to be. Protective when he had to be. Understanding when most others would have pushed or given up. And damnit, he loved so passionately! These two were made for each other, and I enjoyed their journey to openness and love.

REVIEW: Ecstasy by the Sea by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

Ecstasy by the Sea

(Countermeasure:  Bytes of Life #2)

by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

4 Hearts

From Goodreads

This steamy spinoff to COUNTERMEASURE sees Trevor Bauer and Cassandra James having just tied the knot and moving across the pond to their new digs in Ireland to begin their life as a married couple. Their days have been swamped with planning the wedding, setting up their new business, and Trevor’s NSA commitments—not to mention their continued investigation into his parents’ disappearance. So when it’s pointed out to him that a key launching point for a new marriage has been overlooked, Trevor takes matters into his own hands.

Unbeknownst to Cassandra, Trevor plans the perfect honeymoon getaway down to the daintiest swatch of lace. His detail-obsessed wife won’t know what hit her when he sweeps her away for what will result in nothing less than a weekend filled with pure ecstasy by the sea….

My Review Final

For those of you that have read Countermeasure by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey you have to read this book. I can not tell you how many books that I’ve finished and just wished I had a little more of what happens next. Ecstasy by the Sea is that book. The Bytes of Life series could be read independently of the Countermeasure series, but I would advise reading them as companions. 

In Ecstasy by the Sea we get a peek at Trevor and Cassandra’s wedding and their move to Ireland. I loved the descriptions of how Bob is stepping up to be the dad that he should have always been. Trevor is so sweet and works so hard to surprise Cassie with an unexpected honeymoon. Their love comes across even more in this short story and the scenes are a ton hotter. 

I can not wait to read more on this couple and the characters that make up the Countermeasures series.
