QUICKIE REVIEW: Two For One Special (Menage Romance) by Marie Carnay

Two For One Special (Menage Romance)

by Marie Carnay

4.5 HEARTS

4-5 hearts

From Goodreads

Twice the temptation. Twice the pleasure. One love.

Damien and I love to share. The feeling of a woman trapped between our bodies—making her moan and beg and soar? Epic. Undeniable. When Macy shows up at the bar, Damien’s ready for a steamy night. She’s sexy and flirty and all woman. But I know she’s more than a curvy fling. If we play it right, she could be our forever.

I never thought a hot man would be into me. Let alone two. But when they hold me close, I can’t deny it. The way they tear their hands up my skin and grind against me on the dance floor—it’s more than I’ve ever dreamed of. And everything I want. There’s only one thing holding me back. Am I brave enough to give two men my heart?

Standalone, steamy ménage short story. Intended for mature audiences only

My Review Final

Holy cow can Marie Carney spin a spicy tale! This short story was fantastic! Yes the plot was basic but it drew me in with a quickness.

Macy being stood up was probably the best thing that could have happened to her. If it hadn’t she would have never had the chance to explore the world that Damien and Ray opened up to her. A world that she thoroughly enjoyed.

Both Ray and Damien seemed like great guys and I certainly wouldn’t mind being sandwiched between them. They were both extremely giving. They were even protective. There was a small scene in the story showing that. It was completely unnecessary but it made me cheer.

All in all this was a great read that I highly recommend.

P.S. I absolutely love the blurb for this! I think it’s perfect.

REVIEW: Scarlett Red by P.T. Michelle

Scarlett Red

(In the Shadows #2)

by P.T. Michelle

4 HEARTS
4 Hearts (2)

From Goodreads

Mister Black swept in and out of my life like a tornado, leaving me twisted up and forever changed in his wake.

And now that my life is finally back on track, I need to move on, despite the many reminders of our time together.

But our pasts are only as far away as the shadows we hide behind, and sometimes those shadows grow darker, converging on the present in the most insidious way.

He is Black: a stealthy hunter and rainbow master.

I am Red: a truth seeker and desire keeper.

My Review Final

Let me start by saying when I read Mister Black, book #1, of the In the Shadows series by P.T. Michelle I was pretty sure any future books couldn’t live up to the love I had for that book. Scarlett Red was every bit as good!

I have to admit Ms. Michelle had me reeling at the beginning of this book. I kind of liked Bash’s cocky, carefree personality, but I think I struggled as much as Talia did with feelings of cheating whenever I would admit to myself that Bash was pretty adorable. Then I would convince myself that he was some kind of “bad-guy” put in there to get to Talia in some way. Seriously, I felt all kinds of bi-polar over this character.

I really love Talia as a character. She’s had a tough life and is still so strong. Admittedly, she lost it just a bit in this book, but who could blame her? Falling for Sebastian in book 1 happened so fast and losing him was even faster. He just up and disappeared from her life and she’s been left adrift ever since. Finally, she is working to claim back her life and deal with the loss that has haunted her.

Sebastian is one of my all-time favorite male characters. He’s so alpha and sexy, but he’s also sweet and an all-around great guy. He has his demons that don’t want to let go, but it’s not made him bitter or just plain mean. I really feel like once he and Talia confirm their past connection and share their stories his chance for healing will come.

The intrigue in this book wasn’t overdone or cheesy. The sparks between these characters were off-the-charts hot! Not only do they have a connection that sizzles in the bedroom, but pretty much just whenever they are together. I love this series and this book.

REVIEW: Double Her Pleasure by Tanya Sands

Double Her Pleasure

(The Chasers #1)

by Tanya Sands

3 HEARTS
3 Hearts

From Goodreads

Miranda “Randa” Michaels has just about given up on love. With the moving in of two very attractive men next door, Randa thinks no way would either of them be interested in a full figured woman like her. She’s in for a surprise when she is pursued by not one, but both men.

Chase and Jack have been friend for years. They share a love of animals and women, particularly full figured ones. So much so that they prefer to share. They hit the jackpot when they move next door to Miranda Michaels and become her co-workers all in the same week.

Can she overcome her past experiences and open herself to the love of not one but two men?

My Review Final

Double Her Pleasure is the first book of the Chasers series by Tanya Sands. While I enjoyed this book quite a bit the constant, and when I say constant I mean constant, reference to our heroine’s weight became annoying. Don’t get me wrong, I understand the insecurities and being plagued by these insecurities, but for the size that Randa was described as being I can not believe that she was so blatantly targeted because of it. I could even overlook that if the two men that fell in love with her didn’t profess their love for her and then reference her weight every time as being one of the reasons. Small or big I would be a bit annoyed if EVERY time I was told I was loved it was followed up with a size reference.

Now, that all being said if the book had cut the weight references in half this book would have been given a 4.5 star review. The characters were amazing and off-the-charts hot! I felt that Randa was a strong character overall, Chase and Jack were different in personality, yet complimented one another so well.

Chase and Jack are best friends that have a mutual respect for one another. They have the same taste in women and pretty much know that they want to settle down one day TOGETHER with the ONE woman of their dreams. All it took was one look at Randa and both guys knew she was the one. Her body is exactly what they crave and that’s just a bonus. She’s smart, funny and sweet. They know that their situation is unique and there is a very good chance that Randa won’t be open to their lifestyle. Planning to ease her into things Chase and Jack will stop at nothing to bring Randa around to their way of seeing things and capture her heart.

Randa can not believe how sexy her 2 neighbors are. But, they make her feel desires that she’s never imagined. For one, she sees herself as not worthy because of her size. Even more though, she is attracted and drawn to not one but both of her neighbors. She’s never wanted two men at one time and has no idea how the idea of that would even be possible. Lucky for her she has two hot and sexy guys that are more than happy to show her.

It can’t be easy to write a book where two men love the same woman, yet it’s not a competition. Ms. Sands does a great job at writing this scenario, making it believable and keeping the drama to a minimum. I feel it bears repeating that the story itself is really a good one and told well.

REVIEW: Lover Claimed by A.M. Griffin

Lover Claimed

(Dark Wolf Enterprises #2)

by A.M. Griffin

4 HEARTS
4 Hearts (2)

From Goodreads

Lover Claimed, the follow-up to the best selling Dark Wolf Enterprises…

When Meisha comes home and finds a strange man in her kitchen, she does what any sensible person would do. She beats the crap out of him first, then asks questions after. When he explains her best friend is in mortal danger, Meisha knows the whole mess—including a recent murder and the threats on her friend’s life—may be her fault, and she’s determined to get to the bottom of it. And no sexy stranger is going to stop her.

Lajos Farkas isn’t expecting to meet a spitfire, martial artist when he’s on a mission to figure out who’s stealing from Dark Wolf Enterprises, and he certainly doesn’t expect her to insist on butting in on his investigation. But getting rid of Meisha is seemingly impossible, and when his wolf decides she’s his life-mate, suddenly he realizes he’ll do anything to keep her close and grow old with her.
If they can just stay alive long enough to make that possible.

My Review Final

I don’t read a ton of paranormal, but this is one series that keeps drawing me back. Lover Claimed is the second book of the Dark Wolf Enterprises series by A.M. Griffin and quite possibly my favorite thus far. The heroine was strong and extremely likeable. The hero was all that makes us swoon over an alpha male.

Lajos Farkas is a shifter on a mission. His brother’s mate has been targeted and it all seems to lead back to Dark Wolf Enterprises. He will stop at nothing to find who is behind the threat and why. Well, almost nothing. First he has to drop his brother’s mate’s dog off to her best friend for safe-keeping. Easy, right? Ah, not so much! Not only does he find himself up against a kick*ss woman bent on handing him his balls, but he finds himself face-to-face with his mate.

Meisha has a past that has taught her one thing. Never let your guard down. So, when she finds a stranger in her kitchen what’s a girl to do but kick his butt three ways to Sunday. When she finds that this stranger is none other than the brother of her best friend’s boyfriend and that her friend is in trouble Meisha is all in to help. Even though Lajos has made it perfectly clear that he not only doesn’t need her help he doesn’t want it nothing will stop her, especially now that the trouble has spilled into her life.

The human side of Lajos struggles with the wolf side that wants to claim it’s mate. Having a human for a mate is the last thing that he ever imagined or wanted for himself. Working together is making the struggle so much more difficult.

When this couple comes together sparks fly. I don’t care if it’s when they are arguing with one another, fighting beside the other or giving into the attraction that is undeniable this couple is combustible. Whether you normally read paranormal or not I can assure you that this series and this book will appeal to you.

Passionate Addiction

(Reckless Beat #2)

He’s been her ultimate untouchable desire.

Nothing says happy birthday like a rock god flying thousands of miles to surprise a woman he’s never met. But that’s exactly what happens to Gabi Smith when she gives her long distance best friend a flippant invitation to her laid back girl’s night out. She never expected to turn on the dance floor and find Blake Kennedy’s gaze holding her body captive.

She’s his everything and he’s never laid eyes on her.

Gabi means more to Blake than life itself. She’s his strength, his savior, and the only person who helped to vanquish his demons. No one means more to him than his angel. So when things between them start to sizzle, he’s ready to fight for the future he never thought he would deserve.

Skeletons from his past will threaten his only chance at love…

Blake has come a long way—with Gabi’s help—to leave the hell of his youth behind him, but sometimes memories don’t want to stay buried. Determined to stand on his own for once, Blake is willing to stretch the truth to keep his troubles from burdening the woman he adores.

Little white lies can create black holes in any relationship. Only time will tell if an Aussie with a heart of gold will forgive her bad-boy boyfriend or if the deceit will end his passionate addiction.

Undesired Lust

(Reckless Beat #3)

They used to be the perfect team.

Two years ago, songstress Sidney Higgins ruined her life by sleeping with not one, but two of the famous Reckless Beat men, Mason Lynch and Sean Taiden. Their night of intimate celebration turned into a worldwide sensation when the video Mason vowed to keep private was uploaded to the internet, destroying her squeaky-clean reputation and turning the world against her. Now she’s broken and left without hope, trying to find the one thing that can get her back on her feet.

A mistake neither one of them is willing to forgive.

When the sex tape went viral and his best friends held him accountable, Mason bore the stigma of asshole with pride. Now, bitterness has destroyed him, driving away his muse and making him worthless in the industry he loves. There’s only one option left to reclaim his creativity, but that would mean collaborating with a woman who wants to castrate him with a plastic knife.

A palpable chemistry even hate can’t diminish.

Forced to work together, neither one of them is prepared for the undesired lust which immediately takes hold. The lies fade away, exposing the truth; however, it also awakens a threat from their past. The person responsible for tearing them apart is back to ensure they don’t rekindle a spark. With their safety in the balance, Sidney and Mason need to determine what they’re willing to risk to reclaim a relationship they wish they’d never lost.

Excerpt Final

“How did that make you feel?” A voice she knew all too well whispered into her ear.

Is he really here? Nerina thought to herself. There was no way that Victor was here in the club, right now, talking to her, and asking her the ridiculous question of how did that scene make her feel. Was he stupid or something?

Turning to face her tormentor, she glared up at him making sure he saw her displeasure at him sneaking up on her.

“Don’t you have anything better to do with your time, than harass me?”

“Who said I’m here to see you?”

“Who says you aren’t?”

“I do.”

Great, they were going to spare verbally with the one another until one of them gave in. Well, it wasn’t going to be her.

“Whatever, I’m here with friends, so, later.”

He almost reached for her arm, the one with the silver bracelets that covered her scars, but seemed to think better of it.

“How about a dance?”

Was this guy for real? Nerina thought to herself. He had no problems displaying his apt dis-like of her disfigurement, and now he wanted to dance?

Victor was a big man and she couldn’t see how he was going to dance with her, but if that’s what he wanted, then one dance wasn’t going to hurt anyone.

“I wish you weren’t wearing that top.” He said out of nowhere as they swayed to the beat of the music.

“Well, I wish you wouldn’t open your mouth to speak, but we can’t all have what we want.”

Victor threw his head back and laughed. It was deep and melodious and shot straight to the core of her traitorous body.

There was a gentle touch at the nape of her neck and Nerina almost bolted until she heard his brother Colin speak into her ear.

“What do we have here?”

“We’re having ourselves a dance Colin. Behave yourself,” Victor urged with a growl in his voice. She hadn’t realized before but not only was Victor vocal in the sense of grunts and growls, and a few rumbles, so were the rest of his family. Including Teak. Maybe it was a cultural thing, living in a small town. Communication was just as verbal as it was non-verbal so maybe those sounds meant something to them.

“Wish she wasn’t wearing the death top man,” Colin commented as his hands went to the outside of her thighs to move her the way he wanted her to move. She didn’t protest, men tended to be touchy during dancing. As long as they both knew that’s all they were getting from her she was okay.

“What’s with the two of you wanting me out of my top?”

“Silver doesn’t look good on you is all. You should try gold, maybe even cooper, but silver? No silver just won’t do. It clashes with your skin tone.”

Well that was definitely a first. Two men advising her on what not to wear and then suggesting what she should wear. Maybe they weren’t into girls. Her mouth cracked into a grin she couldn’t hide, and Victor leaned forward so that his breath caressed her cheek as he whispered in her ear.

“Why are you smiling?”

“No reason, I just didn’t realize you two were gay is all.”

Victor’s back straightened and he stopped moving to stare down at her with an arched brow. His brother Colin tightened his hold at her thigh, almost painfully.

“We’re not gay.” Victor said with disgust. She knew they weren’t gay, but she’d said it anyway, so he could see how it felt.

“You got something against gay people? Or is it all people you view as different or beneath you?”

His growl was almost as loud as the music. Nerina stepped out of Colin’s grip so that she could look both brothers in the face.

“Who in the hell gave you the idea that we’re remotely like that?” Colin asked with a sour look on his face.

She looked in Victor’s direction, who was still staring at her as if she’d said something totally out of character. It wasn’t like he really knew her anyway, so he’d have no clue that on any given day, she always spoke her mind.

“Your brother took one look at me and made an assumption. So I made my own. It doesn’t feel good to have people assume does it?”

“I was taken off guard is all.”

“By what? I’m like you and anyone else, I just happen to have a disability. You took one look at my hand and you literally sneered.”

“I did no such thing.”

“You did.” She insisted. “How about we cut the dance short, and go our separate way.”

“Great going dip-shit. You just ruined my chance to get fresh with her.” Colin chimed in.

Victor growled again. This time at his brother Colin who was smiling.

She started to back away but Victor apparently had more to say.

“Introduce us.”

“To who?”

“Your friends.”

“Not happening, go find someone else to dance with.”

She did not want him or his brother meeting her friends.

Ever.

About HARD TO BE GOOD:

Hard Ink Tattoo owner Jeremy Rixey has taken on his brother’s stateside fight against the forces that nearly killed Nick and his Special Forces team a year before. Now, Jeremy’s whole world has been turned upside down—not the least of which by a brilliant, quiet blond man who tempts Jeremy to settle down for the first time ever.

Recent kidnapping victim Charlie Merritt has always been better with computers than people, so when he’s drawn into the SF team’s investigation of his army colonel father’s corruption, he’s surprised to find acceptance and friendship—especially since his father never accepted who Charlie was. Even more surprising is the heated tension Charlie feels with sexy, tattooed Jeremy, Charlie’s opposite in almost every way.

With tragedy and chaos all around them, temptation flashes hot, and Jeremy and Charlie can’t help but wonder why they’re trying so hard to be good…

EXCERPT:

“You should be inside celebrating,” Jeremy said, his voice a raw scrape. “You and Marz did an amazing thing this morning.” An hour ago, Marz and Charlie had cracked open a heavily encrypted microchip that contained a wealth of information that not only seemed likely to help the team clear its name, but proved that Charlie’s father hadn’t been dirty, like they’d all thought. “And I’m so happy for you about your dad.”

A wounded darkness passed through Charlie’s gaze, but he finally nodded. “Didn’t feel right without you there.” Pink filtered into his cheeks, and damn if that wasn’t as cute as it was sexy. Jeremy wasn’t sure anything had ever made him blush.

“I’m just not—” Jeremy shrugged and looked down at Charlie’s chest again. Having seen the guy dress more than once, he knew that shirt covered lean muscle that ran from strong shoulders down to his narrow hips. Jeremy fisted his hands against the urge to burrow them under the hem of the tee. After weeks of looking, and wanting, he was dying to touch. Jeremy found Charlie hard to read though, and hadn’t wanted to do anything to scare him off. “—very good company right now. I’m sorry if that—”

Charlie nudged Jeremy’s chin up with his hand, his fingers just barely touching Jer’s stubble-covered skin. But then his thumb landed softly against his lips.

Jeremy’s heartbeat kicked up and his lips fell open. Slowly, oh so tentatively, Charlie stroked the soft pad of his thumb back and forth across them.

“Charlie,” Jeremy whispered as arousal surged through his body, spiking his pulse, tensing his muscles, hardening his dick.

Uncertainty poured off Charlie as the man’s hand trembled where it touched him, but those blue eyes absolutely blazed desire. No way was Jeremy imagining that.

“You’re always good company, to me,” Charlie said in a low voice, his gaze dropping to Jeremy’s lips. Charlie leaned in closer, and closer still, and Jeremy could hardly believe the other man was the one to initiate this. But he was fucking thrilled.

Jeremy swallowed, his lips anticipating that first soft brush. Charlie was so close his shaky breath caressed Jeremy’s lips. His pace was maddening but so damn sexy Jer could barely breathe. And then Charlie’s eyelids fluttered closed and he was right there…

REVIEW: Falling Hard by Sandy Sullivan

Falling Hard

(Eight Second Ride #1)

by Sandy Sullivan

4.5 HEARTS
4-5 hearts
From Goodreads

Levi Bond is a professional bull rider. Eight seconds on the back of a two-thousand pound bull gets the adrenaline pumping, his heart racing, and makes him feel like a million bucks. When he gets it in his mind to check out fellow bull rider, Curt Walsh, he is reminded how easy it would be to fall hard for the rugged cowboy.

Curt Walsh has the career he’s always wanted—professional bull rider. He’s good—more than good, he’s one of the best, but he’s off his game at the moment. Confusion about his sexual preference is running him ragged. He likes both men and women, but what he really wants is Levi Bond, his friend and fellow bull rider.

What happens when two macho bull riders fall for each other? Riding bulls is only eight seconds, but sharing a life together outside of the arena is an even bigger challenge. Are they ready to face it together?

My Review Final

Wow! I am blown away with this book! Falling Hard by Sandy Sullivan is a sizzling m/m romance that is sure to melt your heart. This is the first book of the Eight Second Ride series and if it’s any indication of what’s to come Sandy has a fan for life. I’ve been around the bull riding community for most of my early twenties and was really a bit suspicious of how Ms. Sullivan could pull off this particular love story in a setting known for manly men who can often be set in their ways and stubborn. After reading the story of Levi and Curt I think she did an amazing job! She detailed the fear that plagued these characters when “coming out” was discussed and the ignorance they faced from some of the riders. Although, I loved that they were mostly accepted and supported I have my doubts of how realistic that actually is at this time.

Levi Bond is at the top of his career and good thing since he’s nearing the end of it, as well. He’s one of the lucky ones. He has a profitable ranch and good people to keep it running well in his absence. He wants nothing more than to win the title and settle down with the man of his dreams and raise a family of his own. He has no illusions that living the life of a gay man in a small town will be smooth sailing, but most everyone he loves and respects already knows and supports his choices. Now, if he can just find that man of his dreams. Fellow bull-rider and friend Curt is what his heart wants, but he’s not even sure Curt is gay.

Curt Walsh lives his life on his own terms. He’s never felt loved or wanted by his family, so the nomadic life of a bullrider suits him just fine. He seldom lacks for companionship on the road. He can pretty much have his pick of a different girl every night. Except he’s bi-sexual and lately his desires have been pulling him towards Levi. Levi makes him feel and want things that he’s never wanted in his life. No one has ever made him consider anything permanent or even to choose one gender over the other. But, there is just something different about how Levi makes him feel in and out of the bedroom.

When this couple comes together sparks fly. You can feel the connection and the attraction right through your Kindle. It’s not all sex, either. Although, don’t get me wrong that part is HOT!!! But, they truly have this undeniable passion and respect for each other that just resonates to the very heart of you. I can not wait to read what else this series has to offer.
