Then Came You

From Goodreads

Veterinary intern Emily can’t believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of the Los Angeles clinic she had always imagined. Now she has to put her plans to move to L.A. on hold for a whole year while she fulfills the obligation of her vet school scholarship.

Then Wyatt, her gorgeous one-night stand from a Reno vet conference, introduces himself as her new boss. And Emily is just as drawn to his seductive looks and quiet strength as she was on that very steamy night. She soon learns that Wyatt isn’t just a laid-back doctor, but a delicious alpha male tempting her away from her carefully laid-out plans…

My Review Final

Jill Shalvis has done it, again. Then Came You is the fifth book of the Animal Magnetism and it’s so, so, so good! This series is all about the super sexy guys and gals of Sunshine, Idaho and the employees and volunteers of the local vet clinic. Who doesn’t love a guy that loves animals? 

Wyatt can’t believe it when Dell introduces him to the new intern. What are the chances that his one night stand from the Reno vet convention is the same sexy little lady standing in front of him? The attraction is definitely still there and the chemistry is impossible to ignore. He’s not one of those guys that is afraid of commitment, but Emily has made it clear that her stay is temporary and Wyatt has no interest in losing his heart, again. I think Wyatt may be my very favorite Animal Magnetism book boyfriend.

Emily wanted nothing more than to do her internship in LA where she would be close to her father and could continue to take care of him. Yes, he’s an intelligent capable veterinarian himself, but the man is as absentminded as they come and would definitely forego caring for himself in exchange for taking care of a stray. But, she didn’t get her wish. Here she is in Sunshine, Idaho the last place on earth she would’ve chosen. She’s a city girl to the bone. To make matters worse, her mentor is the sexy one-night stand she allowed herself to have while in Reno, something that is completely out of character. And she can’t seem to convince her body to ignore Wyatt and just be professional.

I loved Wyatt and lived to read what shirt he was going to wear next. The casserole brigade cracked me up and his sisters in all of their dysfunction were hilarious. Emily and her sister were no different. They had such a fun sibling relationship. I really enjoy how Ms. Shalvis didn’t play games with her characters. She made it quite clear that they were attracted to one another, really attracted, but they only think keeping them apart was geography. 

Kudos Ms. Shalvis on another great installment. And I’m really hoping the next book belongs to Darcy and A.J.

This book was provided to me from NetGalley.com in exchange for my honest review.

REVIEW: Misbehavior by Kathryn Kelly

Misbehavior

(Death Dwellers MC # 3)

by Kathryn Kelly

5 HEARTS

5 Hearts

The Blurb

Matthew “Val” Taylor, the Road Captain in the club, was introduced to sex at an early age. Saved from the streets by the club’s Enforcer and President years ago, Val now lives for women and the open road. Until the night the only woman he’s ever loved is almost killed. Val determines to change his ways and be the man Zoann Donovan should have and the father their son deserves.

Zoann has loved Val for a long time. Violence and bitter betrayal forces her to ignore her feelings and distance herself not only from the sexy RC, but her beloved brother, too. Until she discovers the truth. Can Zoann ever be forgiven for all the pain she’s caused? Will Val overcome his own demons and have a future with her and their son? Who will survive in an MC filled with lust and revenge, love and hate?

Warning: This is a tale of rape, murders, deception, heartache, lies, and infidelity. The road to redemption is a tumultuous struggle where only the strong survive and justice is served…Outlaw-style.

My Review Final

This is not your mama’s romance. In fact it contains a lot of triggers and describes a rape in full detail. It is dark, gritty and full of violence. It is also very full of drama. In fact at times the drama makes you want to punch some of characters in the mouth. Mostly you just want to punch the men and Kendall. Kendall is a great character who has absolutely no tact. She says whatever comes into her head without a fucking filter.

I love Valentine/ Matthew but damn that boy never says the right thing. In fact whatever the worst thing to say it usually pops out of his mouth. He is also the biggest playboy in the club. All that being said I still love him even though he is a world class asshole. He is loyal to the club but he tends to get himself in trouble that could have been avoided. It took a mistake that could have ended his life for him to pull himself together.

Zoann has pretty much the worst sexual history. After being brutally raped, she has sex once and becomes pregnant. Val doesn’t react well to the news so she has to deal with it all on her own. She is a fighter and I loved that about her. She also wanted to help victims of sexual assault. I think it was her way of self-healing.

I think I enjoyed this fucked up ride more than the others. It gave me more background on all of the characters. It also gave me crucial info that I was lacking. It helped me understand all of the characters better.

I waited for this book for quite some time, and it didn’t disappoint me at all. In fact it actually blew my mind. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Kathryn Kelly gets better and better with every book she puts out.

BOOK SPOTLIGHT/ EXCERPT/ GIVEAWAY: Tempting the Governess by Vivienne Westlake

Book Spotlight Final

Tempting the Governess

by Vivienne Westlake

The Blurb

Never fall in love with your employer. Any respectable governess knew the cardinal rule. Christine Aubrey prided herself on her devotion to her charges, never suspecting that one day a former pupil would tempt her to break every rule in the book.

Theodore Blake was a “good boy” who grew up into a responsible man. Shouldering the burden of raising his sister’s children and managing his older brother’s affairs, Teddy has always done the right thing. But when his former governess returns to Birchwood, all he can think about is how good it would be to be bad.

You can find Tempting the Governess at:

Goodreads ~ Amazon ~ iTunes ~ Barnes & Noble ~ Kobo ~ AllRomance

Excerpt Final

Only one woman had ever engendered tender feelings of affection.

Now that Teddy finally had the chance to tell her, he did not know how. His quiet nature had always served him in the past, but today it hindered him, barred him from the thing he wanted most.

“If Astrophill and Stella is not to your taste, perhaps you would enjoy a verse from Lord Byron.” He lowered his voice. “There be none of Beauty’s daughters with a magic like thee; and like music on the waters is thy sweet voice to me.”

For a moment, Christine’s gaze met his and held. “You never cease to surprise me, Teddy.”

She’d said it. Teddy. He would’ve been happy with Theodore. His name lingered in the air, and he savored it like a fine vintage of port.

Her eyes widened in horror, and she covered her lips. “I am sorry, Mr. Blake. Forgive me for my slip in proper manners.”

She closed the red leather-bound book and set it on the cushion beside her. From the way she gripped the wood back of the chaise, he knew she was alarmed, probably intent on leaving. If he didn’t stop her—

Teddy stepped in front of her and picked up the book. “I know my recitations are not as practiced or eloquent as my brothers’ would be. If you should like to read in quiet contemplation, I can ring for my luncheon and let you choose a book to your liking. ”

Christine’s cheeks turned pink again. “It is not that, sir. It is…I mean…I—” She paused, taking a deep breath. “I have embarrassed myself and I think it is best that I return to check on the children.”

“When did Mr. Howell arrive to see the children?”

She glanced at the grandfather clock against the wall. “I suspect it was around one o’clock.”

“You have another hour,” he said. . “Surely you can stay a few minutes longer.”

“I—I”

“I am asking you to stay.” He put the volume back into her hands. As he did so, his fingers brushed hers and he wished he could allow them to linger.

When she opened her mouth to speak, he did not let her. If she wanted another excuse to leave, he would not give her the chance.

REVIEW: Passion At Dawn by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey

Passion At Dawn

(Countermeasure: Bytes of Life #4)

by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

4 HEARTS
4 Hearts

From Goodreads

In the third Countermeasure: Byte of Life, Trevor and Cassandra Bauer have settled into married life after facing the bumpy road to the altar. While Cassandra looks for ways to spice up their love life, Trevor questions his efficacy as a husband. His insecurities are compounded by the constant threat of Nathan Nelson, her old friend and past lover, who can’t accept their marriage as final.

A brand new marriage, personal uncertainties, and a good dose of alpha geek jealousy make for a volatile mix. When a phone call spurs him to lay claim to what is his and give Cassandra the fantasies she craves, Trevor reacts like any hot blooded man would. The result is a steamy room, slippery bodies, and Passion at Dawn.

My Review Final

Passion at Dawn is yet another peek into the life of Cassandra and Trevor. I am loving the Bytes of Life companion books to the Countermeasure series. Countermeasure, Countermeasure #1 was so good and honestly I didn’t see the point of the Bytes of Life companions, but I thought what the heck I’ll give them a read. I am so glad I did! The idea of getting a peek into the daily life of this couple after the first book ended is brilliant. In Ecstasy at Dawn, Bytes of Life #2 we get the honeymoon. In Cuffed at Midnight, Bytes of Life #3 we get a peek into Trevor’s first birthday being in a relationship with Cassandra and how they celebrate it. Now, in Passion at Dawn, Bytes of Life #4, is the real life stuff that happens in a new marriage. The insecurities, the doubts, the fears, the obsessive love that one has for their new spouse. These companion books bring you so much closer to the characters and make you feel like you really know them.

Passion at Dawn was a combination of heartbreaking and sizzling. The sparks between this couple are off the charts. And like any newlyweds they explore these sparks as thoroughly and as often as possible. Can I tell you that it sends shivers down my spine every time Trevor says “Cassie girl” in his super sexy Irish brogue. Trevor broke my heart with his insecurities. Don’t get me wrong, I get it! Nathan has made sure that Trevor isn’t confident in his marriage, but to see this amazingly sexy, confident man drowning in his fear brought tears to my eyes. Cassie gave Trevor no reasons to worry, other than the fact that she refuses to stop talking to her old friend Nathan. I get that she has no feelings for him and she is doing nothing wrong, but Nathan is so mean and obvious about trying to tear them apart I really wanted to hear her tell him off.

Now, I’m off to read To Russia With Love, Countermeasure #2. I can’t wait to read more from this amazing cast of characters.

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.

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.

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!

by Chris Almeida & Cecilia Aubrey

4 HEARTS
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.

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.

COVER REVEAL/ GIVEAWAY/ RELEASE DAY LAUNCH: Just Gotta Say by Laura Kaye

JGS RDL Banner

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.”
