Review – The Bed Mate by Kendall Ryan

Review:

Today’s confession….the friends to lovers trope isn’t one of my favorites.  But, I love Kendall Ryan so I decided to give this latest installment of her Room Mate Series at try and I’m so happy I did.  Ms. Ryan works it like a catwalk model and I loved every second of this story!  Sam and Maggie are best friends and have been for years.  But quietly, Sam has always known that no woman could ever measure up to the standards of Maggie and he would never jeopardize his friendship in that way.  Maggie is fresh off a break-up and Sam swoops in to her rescue.  And so….it begins.  I adored Sam and Maggie!  Individually and as a couple, they are dynamite!  Sam is kind and generous and accepts all the many facets of Maggie’s personality.  He knows her better than anyone and there is something so sexy about a man who knows a woman this intimately without being intimate with her.  He pulls out all the stops, not only to make her feel better but to maneuver her a position in which she can accept him as a lover, not just a friend.  I was utterly charmed by him.  Maggie worships Sam but when several people point out how perfect they are together, Maggie allows her mind to entertain thoughts of another type of relationship with Sam.  It was so romantic.  These two have some pretty amazing chemistry and when you couple that with the way they can read each other so well….it results in some pretty erotic fireworks!!!  Whew!  I’m surprised my Kindle survived the onslaught of heat!  Throw in a romantic getaway, a douchebag ex,  and a few good-natured friends, and you have a delightfully sinful story brimming with romance and smokin’ hot sex.  I definitely enjoyed reading The Bed Mate and once again, I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ryan has up her sleeves for her readers next.  5 stars.

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a new story in her Room Mate series…

I might be a typical guy, but these last few years, my love life’s been anything but. From crazy ex-girlfriends to one night stands who are stage-five clingers, my relationships go bad faster than the milk in your fridge. The only constant has been my best friend Maggie.

Fresh off a bad breakup of her own, I invite Maggie to my guy’s skiing weekend knowing she needs an escape from reality. But then something funny starts to happen. I start noticing things about her that I never noticed before.

She’s beautiful and doesn’t know it, she’s funny without even trying, and now she’s suddenly single for the first time in forever.

Sharing a hotel room with her proves to be the tipping point in our very platonic friendship. Suddenly I want to put my hands, my mouth, and my … other parts … all over her gorgeous body. I want to claim her, make sure no man touches her ever again. But then her groveling ex shows up, and Maggie’s torn.

Am I ready to screw up the best relationship I’ve ever had for a shot at something more?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Every now and then, Sam would shoot me a sympathetic look, knowing that I had no idea what they were talking about, but in truth, their company was a welcome break. Between what the woman in the shop had said and the lady on the plane’s insinuation, my mind was going a mile a minute and I was beginning to look at Sam in a way I definitely shouldn’t be.

Okay, so, yeah, he was sexy. That was a no-brainer.

I shot him a furtive glance, taking in the corded muscles of his forearms and the lock of dark hair that constantly flopped onto his forehead. And sure, he was sweet and attentive. He looked after me and made sure I always had a fresh drink and that I wasn’t cold or hot. He held the door for me and pulled out my chair when we went to restaurants. Hell, he’d been looking forward to this trip for months and he’d sacrificed an entire day just to make sure I got here safe and didn’t spend my time sulking.

Still, that didn’t mean he had feelings for me. He hadn’t argued when I’d mentioned us being like brother and sister or anything.

No, this whole line of thinking was ludicrous. Sam was a good friend. That was all…wasn’t it?

After all, Trevor had loved me once and he never did any of that.

Admittedly, that wasn’t the best example, but it proved my point all the same. In Sam’s shoes, Trevor never would have missed the chance to hit the slopes with his friends. He hadn’t even skipped the business trip that fell on my twenty-fifth birthday years back.

But Sam was there, my brain supplied helpfully.

Again, not an indication that he had feelings for me. People were just different. Sam was one of the good ones. And if he liked me surely I’d have known by now. He’d have told me or…something.

“Is that your phone?” Sam turned to me and I blinked, only realizing that I’d been so encompassed in my own thoughts that I’d totally zoned out.

“What?” I asked, confused.

“Don’t you hear that vibrating noise? I think it’s your phone.”

I listened hard and then heard the low, gentle hum he was talking about.

“Yep, probably you-know-who again.” I sighed, but fished the phone from my tiny handbag all the same on the off chance it was a family member with an emergency.

It wasn’t Trevor, though. He had called—I had seven new missed messages from him since I’d left for the airport, but I also had three missed calls from my friend Deanna. I hadn’t spoken to her in more than two weeks because she’d been away on a long-awaited safari, but now more than ever I really needed to hear her voice.

FALLING UNDER YOU: A Fixed Trilogy Novella by Laurelin Paige
Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway. But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom. Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

CRAVING HIS COMMAND: A Doms of Genesis Novella by Jenna Jacob
Mercy O’Connor—known as Symoné at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender.

If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, Symoné would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight.

AMERICAN QUEEN by Sierra Simone
It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

About the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Ten Authors-

 

Tessa Bailey Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

With experience and knowledge she delves deep into the emotional psyche of strong Dominants and sassy submissives with her Doms of Genesis series and The Doms of Her Life series (co-authored with Shayla Black and Isabella LaPearl).

Her works have been called: savagely beautiful, captivating, and emotionally riveting.

A hopeless romantic, Jenna paints a softer picture with her contemporary romance: Sky Of Dreams. A lover of life and laughter, she sets her zany sense of humor free in the romantic comedies: Sin On A Stick and Wet Dream.

No matter the genre, you’ll want a box of tissues handy, Jenna tugs hard on the heartstrings.

Review – Too Close To Call by Tessa Bailey

Review:

Ok.  Too Close To Call definitely falls in the “New Adult” category, which is something I rarely read.  Mostly because I have a hard time relating to the maturity level of the characters in the books.  However, Tessa Bailey has a winner with this book!  I found myself pulled into a story that would normally never appeal to me and enjoying ever second of it.  From the moment Kyler realizes his heart was left back in his hometown to the very satisfying ending, I was enraptured, not only by the sweet and playful side of Kyler, but by the stoic but passionate side of Bree.  Kyler is great…a young man on the cusp of his burgeoning career but with the mindset of a mature man.  He knows what he wants and he does everything in his power to make that so.  Bree is his everything.  Bree herself knows that Kyler was the love of her life but she gave him up so he could have bigger and better things than she wanted for herself.  She never wanted to leave home and doesn’t crave attention or fame.  So imagine her surprise when Kyler swoops back into town, determined to win her heart all over again.  Their cat-and-mouse chase is both titillating and romantic.  Truly, both of these characters were amazing.  Every facet of their relationship was wonderful.  The sex scenes were not over-the-top nor did they take over the story, which sometimes happens in novellas.  This was the perfect blend of romance and eroticism with plenty of backstory to make you feel like you have been with them from the very beginning of their journey.  The ending was superbly written and left me both wanting to know more 10 years into their future and being completely satisfied.  Overall, I was thoroughly entertained and engaged from beginning to end.  This book is perfect for lovers of second-chance romance and new-adult romance.  4.5 stars.

From New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey comes TOO CLOSE TO CALL, a novella in her Romancing the Clarksons Series published by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy today!

 

 

About TOO CLOSE TO CALL:

All-American wide receiver Kyler Tate’s life is about to change. A fairytale college career skyrocketed him to the NFL draft. Adoration and opportunity are thrown in his direction wherever he goes, thanks to being chosen in the first round by the Los Angeles Rage.

None of the accolades mean anything, though, without his high school sweetheart, Bree Justice, by his side. Four years ago, she walked away from Kyler, choosing a quiet life over the flash and notoriety his career would someday bring.

Now he’s back in their Indiana hometown, refusing to leave for Los Angeles without her. Demanding she give their life together a shot. Her heart never stopped bleeding for the love of her life, but Bree’s decision was final. Too bad their wild attraction has only been amplified by their separation, and Kyler won’t quit until Bree is wearing his ring.

Review – Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde

Review:

I very much enjoyed Shade’s Lady.  Our hero, Shade, is super alpha and over-the-top bada**.  While not my favorite character from this series (I still can’t move past my crush on Horse), I certainly liked him quite a bit (seriously, you need to read this whole series,  if you already haven’t.  Hot, yummy bikers…super awesome) and I think he was perfect for our heroine, Mandy.  He is definitely the big man and his bossiness and cave-man behavior melted my panties more than once.  I loved how he complemented Mandy’s outgoing and vivacious personality and I loved Mandy even more for her ability to surprise and soothe Shade.  There is nothing hotter than a man falling for his woman and Mandy’s ability to make Shade seem approachable and “real” made me want to be her!  She was perfect for him.  Their getting together was very unconventional and I like the authors approach and voice when handling the very serious issue of finding out your boyfriend is a scuzzy, lying, scum-bucket (honestly, her revenge was THE BEST EVER and Shade taking her back during it, PRICELESS).  This was a short and quick read but it certainly delivers quite the punch in smoking hot sex and engaging storyline.  Overall, I found this book to be both entertaining and stimulating (really, who doesn’t love a bad boy who uses his mouth so GOOD).  I love this series by Joanna and I recommend both Shade’s Lady AND The Reaper’s Motorcycle Club Series if you are into hot, erotic romance, bite-your-nails suspense, and MC stories.  4 stars.

About SHADE’S LADY:

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

Release Blitz w/ Review – Sweet Rivalry by K. Bromberg

Review:

This book was short and sweet and full of chemistry between our hero, Ryder, and his nemesis, Harper.  Harper has always come out on top in everything, but one thing Harper always secretly wanted was Ryder.  Since she knows there is no way he lusts after her, she flees at the end of their graduate year and never looks back.    A new work project has brought these two competitors face to face and this time, Harper is determined that she will be the victor….and maybe receive a long sought after reward.  What neither of them counted on was the intensely deep connection they feel towards one another, something that neither time nor distance has touched.  Harper is strong and determined and has quite the sassy and witty mouth on her.  She gives Ryder a challenge, one he is eager to accept.  Ryder was an awesome hero…cocky and bold, deliciously dirty mouthed, and fair-minded and passionate about the things he wants.  He very much wants Harper and I about lost my shorts when these two finally succumb to the lust they are feeling.  Seriously…I’m surprised the didn’t burst into flames.  The sex scenes are erotic and titillating with the perfect blend of emotion and passion.  There is even a little bit of intrigue thrown in, to keep you even more engaged and entertained.  This was a fast paced and quick read full of great banter between the characters and an ending that left me fully satisfied.  I can’t wait to dive into more books by K. Bromberg.  If Sweet Rivalry is just a taste of her other books, I’ve been missing out on some fantastic reads!  4.5 stars

sweetrivRyder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

And not just on mine––not just a brush of lips against lips—but I’m talking all in. Hands on my cheeks, tongue licking between my lips, body pressed against mine, groan in the back of his throat, type of all in.

I don’t react at first. I’m stunned. Flabbergasted, my mind reeling from the anger to the surprise to now this without any warning at all.

This is Ryder.

My rival.

My supporter.

My crush.

The thoughts flicker that this is what I’ve wanted. But they soon shift to panic. To insecurity I don’t kiss well enough. That this is all a joke and I’m the butt of it.

But then I feel. Everything. All at once.

And I know this is real.

It’s like I can’t catch my breath and have too much air all at the same time.

My body is on fire. And not just from his touch but from that burn deep inside that feels like it’s exploding and imploding all at once.

So this is what it feels like to really be kissed.

It’s a fleeting thought before the sensations, the moment, the emotions, consume me whole.

His hands move my face to change the angle of the kiss. His fingertips on the line of my jaw singe my skin. His lips move expertly against mine, and all I can do is feel. All I can do is want.

Thinking isn’t an option.

The anger from before has morphed to want. The adrenaline has recharged with desire.

There is no rivalry.

There is no graduation ceremony tomorrow I’m missing to catch my flight.

There is no panic over if I’ll ever see him again.

It’s just him.

And me.

The scent of his cologne in my nose. The heat of his body against mine. The taste of hunger in his kiss.

5 Star Review – Rock Chick Reawakening by Kristen Ashley

If each book in the fabulously written Rock Chick Series is a decadent layer in a beautifully decorated cake, then you should consider Rock Chick Reawakening the glittery and bold topper that completes the masterpiece!  The long desired story of Marcus and Daisy is now in your hands and I have to tell you, you will not be disappointed.  It’s old school Kristen Ashley, and sucks you right in with a sexy and uber-alpha hero (the mysterious and dashing Marcus) and his southern flower, Daisy.  I loved both of them and it’s so hard to pin point just one reason why.  Marcus is bold and confident and is the king of his world and Daisy is strong and sweet and has no idea how incredibly worthy she is of Marcus.  I don’t want to spoil this with details but let me tell you that Marcus works very hard to sweep Daisy off her feet and he does it spectacularly.  In true Kristen Ashley heroine fashion, Daisy give Marcus a run for his money.  She’s damaged and thinks she can’t possibly be good enough for him but Marcus devotes his life to making sure she realizes she deserves the sun and moon and anything else she possibly wants.  They have amazing chemistry and theirs was a love story so moving I was blinded by the sheer brightness of its power.  We learn how Marcus becomes involved with Lee Nightingale and we also learn what happens after the final book in this series, Rock Chick Revolution.  The plot was fast moving and fresh.  Ms. Ashley ties up so many lingering questions we had in regards to Marcus and Daisy and still gives us a taste of what we *might* read about in the future. And the epilogue….you could have knocked me over with a feather.  Tears of happiness and joy were the name of the game at the ending!   This book was, quite possibly, the most romantic book I have ever read and was definitely worth the wait.  Mark my words, Rock Chick Reawakening will go down and one of the greatest love stories of all time.  Kristen Ashley is the queen of romance writers and this book, despite it’s short length, is one of her greatest accomplishments. 5 stars

From New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Ashley, comes ROCK CHICK REAWAKENING, the long awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure you grab your copy today!

EXCERPT:

Her face was stunning. Wide smile. White teeth and a good deal of them. Big eyes. Elegant nose. Soft cheekbones. All of this she highlighted with the expert use of makeup from what was clearly a gift of superior genes into something that shone like a Hollywood starlet.

A starlet of a stripper who looked a good deal like Dolly Parton, who also likely got home the night before, earliest, three in the morning, and was right then, only hours later, back on the stage helping another girl by teaching her some moves.

“Marcus, brother,” Smithie’s voice came at him. “You got a problem with the way I do business, and I give you reason to have that problem, then we have a talk. I don’t give you that reason, we don’t have conversations like this one. That’s our deal.”

Marcus listened to him while he watched Daisy talking to the other girl and then she ran across the stage, doing it gracefully in platform sandals, her stone-washed jeans tight on her ass and hips and all the way down her legs. Still, after she ran the four steps, she launched herself high, grabbing on to the pole at least three feet higher than she was, her body swinging around by just her hands.

When the swing ended, she climbed up the pole, hand over hand. Doing this quickly, taking herself up another four feet, she flipped her bottom half over, wrapping her skinny legs around the pole. She dropped back, her hair flowing down, and with her only hold on the pole being her legs, she arched her back and slid down slowly, somehow circling the pole as she did it.

She ended this doing a layout with her hands on the floor, her legs in slow and controlled movements coming over her head one after the other. Her hands pushing off, she was up.

Standing straight with perfect posture.

A Message from Kristen:

Dear Reader,

I’m beside myself with glee that this prequel to my Rock Chick series has been unleashed! There was some time when I never thought I’d write it. When I couldn’t be in that terrible place with Daisy. But I’m oh-so glad that she called to me, demanding her story be told so she could give it to me and now I can give it to you! I loved every moment spent with Daisy and Marcus. And I hope you do too!

~Kristen Ashley

kristen-ashley-headshotAbout Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

About 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Eight:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Christopher Rice, Melissa Foster, Rebecca Zanetti, Liliana Hart, and introducing Jennifer Lyon and Riley Hart.

Six Dark Tales. Six Sensual Stories. Six Page Turners.

Kiss The Flame by Christopher Rice
Laney Foley is the first woman from her hard working family to attend college. That’s why she can’t act on her powerful attraction to one of the gorgeous teaching assistants in her Introduction to Art History course. Ever since he first laid eyes on her, Michael Brouchard seems to think about little else but the two of them together. And it’s become harder for Laney to ignore his intelligence and his charm.

Daring Her Love by Melissa Foster
Kat Martin knows what she wants in a man—someone stable and adoring, definitely not the type of guy who sleeps around. After all, Kat rarely does the wrong thing—until she meets seductively enticing Eric James. When it comes to his career, race-car driver Eric James is intense, obsessive, and passionate, but when it comes to sex, there’s only one kind—daring, unbridled, and no-strings-attached.

Teased by Rebecca Zanetti
Chalton Reese has left war and death in the past. His fingers now protect with a keyboard instead of a weapon. Until the vampire king sends him on one more mission; to hunt down a human female with the knowledge to destroy the Realm. Olivia Roberts has eyes like emeralds, a brain to match his own, and a passion that might destroy them both—if the enemy on their heels doesn’t do so first.

The Promise of Surrender by Liliana Hart
Mia Russo spent ten years working undercover before handing in her shield. Opening her own pawn shop is a piece of cake in comparison. Until the day Zeke McBride walks into her shop. Zeke knows Mia has every right not to trust him. He was the one who chose the next op instead of her. And all he can hope is that somewhere under the snarl and cynicism is a woman who can forgive.

Savaged Surrender by Jennifer Lyon
Bad boy Ethan Hunt is tainted by a past he can’t escape. Good girl Ana Kendall is a wicked temptation impossible to resist. She’s too innocent for him, so he leaves, joining the security team for the famous rock band Savaged Illusions. Since moving in with her dad at fourteen, Ana’s been the perfect daughter. But perfection sucks. It’s time to shed her good girl persona and go after what she wants—Ethan.

Jumpstart by Riley Hart
Motocross star Beckett Monroe is in need of R&R, not only to adjust to his new out-of-the-closet status, but in hopes of reigniting his passion for motocross. Support shows up in the way of Christian Foster, his childhood best friend and first love. Spending time with Christian is the jumpstart Beck’s heart needs. But even if Christian can forgive Beck for hurting him years ago, do they stand a chance against the obstacles in their path?

 

 

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.
