REVIEW – Their Sweet Desire by Dixie Lynn Dwyer

Their Sweet Desire

Blurb:

Antoinette ‘Toni’ DeLuca owns the coffee shop, Bliss. She doesn’t trust easily—she has her reasons—and then she meets two billionaires who want to share her. The idea is completely arousing, but she has her reservations. Emerson Pierce and Stone Ryder appear too good to be true.  Her ex won’t leave her alone. He wants the business, and so does his criminal type family. She lies to protect her heart. But Emerson and Stone, two billionaires who want her, lie to protect their hearts as well. In mass confusion, everyone is a suspect in her demise. With the help of their family and friends, Emerson, Stone and Toni come clean so they can be together. But ultimately it’s the one person they dismissed too early that threatens to end their lives.

What Worked For Me:

I freaking LOVED Toni.  I don’t know why this character appealed to me so much but she has to be one of my most favorite written heroines…ever.  And her coffee/pastry shop?  Let’s just say I would love to have someone here locally create a place that sounded as warm and inviting as Bliss.  Toni had moments where I thought she was completely too stubborn for her own good but she’s so charming and flirtatious I didn’t even care. Emerson and Stone have to also be some the most inventive men when it comes to subterfuge and hiding their identity.  They are rich, accomplished and every time Stone opened his mouth, my panties got wet.  Throw together these three and you get some pretty intense and erotic encounters that make you forget that you aren’t actually in the book….you are simply reading it.  Then we have our villains.  I’m beginning to think that Ms. Dwyer is a pure genius when it comes to creating crazy, off-the-hook villains and one of these is completely off their rocker!   Throw in a fast moving and entertaining plot and again, some zany and crazy secondary characters and you have the perfect recipe for another outstanding book.

What Didn’t Work For Me:

I know that keeping secrets was part of the premise of this book but these characters are masters of secret keeping and lying.  While it was resolved and even understood, I expected confessions sooner than they actually happened.

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes, yes, yes.

REVIEW – A Billion to One by Dixie Lynn Dwyer

me-dld-pstbc-billion3130912_0206

Blurb:

Organized, assertive planner, with trust issues, seeks one-night stand. Chiara Costiano thinks it is a plan, thanks to her best friend Heather. Then she meets Cash Corbin and Zane Heston, two billionaires that want to share her and gain her trust. She’s not so easily convinced that they are for real, and that a ménage is what she wants, but they’re not taking no for an answer.  Cash and Zane are looking for the perfect woman. A billion to one is their chance of finding her, and they hit the jackpot with Chiara. She’s everything they want and desire, but she’s caught in a bit of a jam. They’re about to take over her father’s company, and she believes it belongs to her. As if being abducted isn’t enough, Chiara faces crimes of revenge from her father’s past, corporate sabotage, a hitman gone psycho, and two loving men who swear to remain by her side, no matter who tries to break them.

What Worked For Me:

I started this book expecting greatness, especially after book one in this series and I received exactly that.  I loved our heroine Chiara.  She is classy and sassy and very independent.  Born into wealth and privilege, she is no shrinking violet.  From her volunteer efforts to her humble abode, she doesn’t let her wealth guide her or define her.  Her heroes, Cash and Zane are strong, confident and the perfect foil to sexually repressed Chiara.  They bring her out of her shell and make her feel reckless, wild, and free.  A few hours of pleasure extend to days and weeks and this relationship looks golden until a crazy hitman goes…well crazier and Chiara’s life hangs in the balance because of her father and an unknown player in a game she wasn’t even aware was being played.  This plot was fantastic and I completely didn’t see the ending coming.  There was plenty of intrigue and suspense between all the mind-blowing (and Kindle melting) moments between our heroine and her heroes.  And as far as best friends go…Chiara’s are some of the best I have ever read.

What Didn’t Work For Me:

Everything was outstanding.

Would I Recommend This Book:

Yes…..over and over.

REVIEW – Their Greatest Treasure by Dixie Lynn Dwyer

me-dld-pstbc-theirgreatesttreasure3130903_0117

Blurb:

Nash and Riker blame themselves for their lover’s death after losing her during an investigation. Now retired Federal Agents and entrepreneurs, they’re billionaires, and their club is turning into a dive. They try to fill their empty hearts with money, women, and even alcohol, but it’s no use, they can’t let go of the past.  Chastity Malone is hired to help Riker and Nash Riley, two sexy twins with attitude. She’s reserved and untrusting, with a past and heartache of her own. By coincidence, their pasts collide, bringing them trouble and testing their fate in one another.  Chastity is threatened and assaulted. She is submerged in a web of lies by coincidence.  Riker and Nate must forget about the past and filter through the lies to save the one woman that completes them. But they didn’t count on one obsessed ex lover, an unsolved case, challenges to their faith, and a woman so strong, so determined to prove her innocence, she’s ready to die to prove it.

What Worked For Me:

I always think that the first book in a brand new series is going to set the tone for how the series is going to flow.  If Their Greatest Treasure is an indication of how Dixie Lynn Dwyer’s newest series is, prepare to have your mind blown.  These characters are phenomenal and their chemistry is mind blowing and electric.  At first Nash and Riker come off as spoiled, damaged and in need of some new ‘fixing up” in more than one areas of their life.  Did I mention, they are also smoking hot?  Well, they are…completely.  And their match?  Elegant, classy and soul-battered, Chastity.  She’s had her own past trauma and is looking for a solid and stable life.  But preventing her from that is an abusive ex how happens to have a link to the past of Nash and Riker.  Seperately, then together, these characters passions collide and explode leaving you breathless and full of anticipation for each new encounter.  But past wrongs, misunderstandings and confusion combine and threaten their new-found happiness.  The plot was seamless and effortless and the secondary characters further build anticipation for the next book.  This book is was a treasure from beginning to end.

What Didn’t Work For Me:

This book was flawless.

Would I Recommend This Book:

100% yes
