Review – Until You’re Mine by Cindi Madsen


This is a review I fully did not anticipate I would be writing.  First, because it’s new adult, something that doesn’t hold my attention at all and second, because I put it down and picked it back up 3 different times since it couldn’t hold my attention.  But something was nagging me about it in the back of my head so I decided to give it a go for a final time two nights ago…just for sh**s and giggles.  And I know what was nagging me….the writing was good and I could sense the potential and I was so right and blown away I can’t believe I was going to DNF it!  Until You’re Mine may have started out way too slow for my usual liking but the second half of the book packs such and emotional and visceral punch, it’s worth a little bit of boring back story to get to the heart of what this book is about….enduring, faithful, searing LOVE that has no limits and no regrets.  Our hero, Shane, lost it all because his head wasn’t in the sport he loved so much and he had a very good reason for this.  He is trying to re-build his credibility with the MMA community and is working with our heroines family gym.  I completely fell head-over-heels for Shane.  He has such a great work ethic, especially when you take into account his childhood.  But more than that, it was his pure emotion and want he had for Brooklyn that made him all the more fantastic.  And his ultimate display of that love at the end?  One of the most epic romantic moves EVER!!!!  Our heroine, Brooklyn, has returned home for the summer temporarily to help get the family gym back in order.  She has plans and dreams and isn’t willing to sacrifice them…for anyone or anything.  She has a tempestuous relationship with her father and there were a few times I wanted to crawl into this book and ring his neck.  Brooklyn is drawn to Shane but there are many factors at play that keep her fighting what she feels for him.  Not just tiny, insignificant factors either.  I loved the scrappy determination in which Brooklyn displays about everything in her life…..fighting for the future she wants, the man she thinks she needs, and the man who could be her everything.  She was a heroine that really spoke to me.  I adored the relationship she had with her brothers too!  As Shane and Brooklyn fight their attraction, circumstances in her life change and Brooklyn becomes incapable of denying that she wants Shane desperately, despite the fact she is convinced they can never work.  These two have some super-charged chemistry but even better, the emotional pull they have towards one another makes it even more erotic.  The sex scenes were both titillating and decadent.  There is some angst….naturally when to people are this young, you are going to get that, but it didn’t take anything away from the story in the least.  There are some pretty important family dynamics that play out and bring many moments of laughter and tears to the story.  The plot is well written, despite the fact that I found the beginning to drag out too slowly, it did pick up speed and my interest.  And the ending of this book….it was perfect and flawless.  I’m so glad I made the choice to finish because I would have missed out on a very epic love story!  I’m looking forward to seeing what Ms. Madsen has up her sleeves next because she definitely has my interest peaked!  4.5 stars.

About Until You’re Mine:

You might’ve heard of me, Shane Knox, the guy who rose quickly through the MMA fighter ranks, only to crash just as fast. No one cares about personal reasons when it comes to losing fights and money. I’m determined to get back to where I was. For you to hear my name again. I’ve finally convinced the owner of Team Domination to take a chance and get me back in fighting—and winning—shape. What I didn’t bargain for is the guy’s spitfire of a daughter. Factor in her two professional-fighter brothers who are acting as my coaches and the fact that my career hangs in the balance, and Brooklyn’s the last girl I should be fantasizing about.


The closer we get, the more I want Brooklyn. The stakes are high, and I know there’s a big chance of both of us getting hurt, but I won’t stop until she’s mine.

I smiled at
her. It wasn’t a friendly smile. It was sinister. Her eyes widened, and she moved
back on the rock, knowing I was coming for her.
“You better
lose that dress real quick, Princess. I’d hate for it to get wrecked.” I crept
closer. Panic marred her features. She knew all too well that I meant what I
wouldn’t.” She held her hands out to stop me.
“Come on,
you know me better than that. You’re getting in this water. It’s just up to you
whether your pretty dress is coming in with you.” I turned my back to her. “You
have until the count of three. If you’re not in the water by then, I’m turning
around regardless of whether you’re still dressed or not.”
“Linc, I’m
not skinny-dipping with you.” Her voice quivered a touch with nerves.
I chuckled.
“No one said anything about skinny-dipping, but please don’t let me stop you if
you feel inclined to swim naked.” I reached for the waistband of my boxers, and
intending to mess with her a little more, I removed them completely. “I might
just join you.” I threw my underwear over my shoulder and onto the rock.
I was
surely going to hell for this.
“Linc! Oh,
my god!” I looked over my shoulder at her to find her face buried in her hands.
“To the
count of three, Indie,” I warned one last time.
She huffed.
What was I
doing? She was Nate’s sister.
And she had
Jack-ass for a boyfriend.
She was
completely off limits.
It was
silent. I turned to find her standing on the rock, twisting her hands nervously
in front of her. Her dress…at her feet.
I gulped.
Lace. White lace. Matching.
I was going to hell.
And I didn’t care. I didn’t care that she was
Nate’s sister. I didn’t care that she had a boyfriend. I didn’t care that she
was entirely off limits. She was mine. Always had been.
And one way or another, I wasn’t
leaving this island without getting what I wanted.

Blog Tour – Lost For You by Jayne Frost

Author: Jayne Frost

Genre: Contemporary Romance


I’ve been clean for years. But now my addiction has a face. Her face…

At eighteen, I stood at the precipice of stardom. I had the record deal. And the tour to back it up. But I succumbed to the pressure of that life. The dark side.

Now, I skate on the fringe. My brother is the genius guitarist for the band Caged, and I’m the one who helped make that happen. I’m happy to run my bars and my land development company.

Sure I am.

And then I meet her—Taryn Ayers—the music manager behind the three biggest bands in the country. She doesn’t know I’m Cam’s older brother. Or that I’ve got a secret that makes

her world and mine fundamentally incompatible.

Problem is, I want to know Taryn. I crave her as much as any drug.

But can I risk letting her know me?


Lost For You is a STAND ALONE New Adult Romance.

Intended for mature audiences due to hot as sin rockstars and the world they live in.

**Please note: This book contains instances of drug use.**


Head bowed, I trudged along, feeling around inside my purse for my keys. For such a tiny bag, everything got lost.

“About time you got here.”

My heart stalled when I spotted Chase sitting in front of my door. Climbing to his feet, he strolled toward me. And then his hands sunk into my hair and his mouth covered mine, tongue diving between my lips with wild abandon.

Sliding his hand to my nape, he touched his forehead to mine. “Missed this mouth.” He nipped my lip to prove the point.

Still dazed from his kiss, I ran my hands over his broad chest to his shoulders. Cursing the hormones, or the pheromones, or whatever it was that made me want to hold onto Chase so tight that he’d never leave, I smiled. “I missed you too.”

“You okay?”

The gentle tone and concern clouding his gaze made me squirm. “I’m fine. Just tired. What are you doing here?”

The pads of his calloused fingertips dug into the tension knots on my neck. “Waiting for you.” He pressed another kiss to my lips, gentle this time. “You said you’d call when you got in. Your plane landed over an hour ago.”

“Yeah, I had to stop by the office.”

A heavenly scent wafted up, and I blinked at Chase as I tried to place the aroma. Wrestling from his hold, I pushed him aside, searching. He chuckled low in his throat as I rushed blindly toward the three large bags with the familiar turquoise script propped against the wall next to my door.

“Franklin’s?” I gushed, nearly falling to my knees in worship. “You brought me barbecue … from Franklin’s?”

Somehow Chase managed to grab the handles on the bags before I ripped them open. “I take it you’re a fan?”

A fan? Franklin’s was hands-down the best barbecue joint in the city. Lines formed around the little shack at sunrise on most days. And when the food was gone, the owner placed a homemade sign in the window that simply read “Out.” That usually happened before noon.

“How did you manage to get Franklin’s Barbecue at this time of night?”

I scrambled to get the key into the lock, missing the target when Chase’s lips brushed my neck. “I told you. I’m a resourceful guy.” His free hand slid to the juncture of my thighs. “Now open the door. I’m starving.”

Release Blitz – Ruthless by Tory Richards

ruthless- draft3_1.jpg



It’s been years since Rebel went undercover to spy on the Red Devils for his club, Dark Menace. During his days as a Red Devil, Rebel was forced to watch and participate in Wildman’s sick and twisted club dealings, including the ruin of a young and innocent woman. Even though she escaped, Rebel can’t forget the captivating beauty. Bike Week in Daytona Beach brings them back together. This is their story.


I grabbed Ginger by the hand and pulled her out of the room, down the hall and to the bathroom. Her resistance was futile, her fear unimportant. I knew what I had to do, and if she were smart, she’d realize it, too. If she wanted to live. I opened the bathroom door and yanked her inside, thanking fuck that I found it empty. It was filthy, but better than nothing, and it had a shower that everyone used when they felt the need to be clean, which wasn’t often.

Ginger spun around when I shut the door, the look of a trapped animal in her pretty blues. I ignored her growing terror, steeling myself for what I had to do. Even behind closed doors I had to make it real, had to be convincing that I was an unfeeling bastard. I saw her swallow, could see her tits rising and falling rapidly as the fear of the unknown overwhelmed her. She was expecting the worst, preparing herself to do whatever she had to do to survive.

“Take off your clothes.” I kept my tone harsh, indifferent to her growing panic.

She shook her head vigorously and stepped back, slamming hard against the cracked porcelain sink. A nervous cry escaped her, and her eyes were wild as she took in her surroundings and realized that there was no escape. Her gaze touched on the door behind me before meeting my eyes.


“Take off your fucking clothes,” I said in an uncaring, demanding tone. “You’re filthy, and not in a way that gets my dick hard. Now undress.” I removed my cut and the t-shirt beneath it. “In fact, I think I’ll join you.” Her eyes nearly popped out of her head at that. “If you’re not undressed by the time I’m out of my clothes, you won’t like the consequences.” I kicked off my boots as my hands went to the front of my pants.

As I’d expected she would, Ginger’s small hands began to unbutton her blouse. Slowly she began to expose enticing, creamy skin to my wandering eyes. I undid my pants. She lowered her gaze to the floor and turned around before reluctantly removing the garment. I let her have her moment of modesty before I looked into the mirror in front of her. Fuck. My dick took notice of her perfect tits and rosy nipples. Hard nipples. Surprising.

I lowered my zipper, the sound of it overloud in the tiny room. I could tell that she knew what I was doing by the stiffening of her backside, but she didn’t let it stop her from removing her jeans. As I kicked mine away, hers hit the floor. I hissed, taking in the mouth-watering curves of her shapely ass, an ass I wanted to dig my fingers into while I was grinding my dick into her cunt. Fucking hell, I hadn’t expected the surge of lust that was heating my blood at an alarming rate.

The sound of harsh breathing filled the room, and it took a minute before I realized that it was mine. “Turn around,” I demanded sharply.

I kept the smile to myself when I watched her bring her long hair forward, knowing that she was trying to use it to shield as much of her nudity as she could from me. She’d all but succeeded. When she turned, her tits were hidden behind the thick layers of her hair, and her hands were shielding her pussy from me.

“Come here, Ginger.”

She padded toward me slowly. I was glad that she was acting sensible. It would make my job a helluva lot easier, and besides, I didn’t want to hurt her. When she was within inches of me she halted, her gaze still lowered to the floor. “Look at me.” I moved her hair back behind her, exposing those luscious tits. Christ, they were full and rounded, more than a handful, and her rosy little nipples made me salivate and my dick harden.

Her worried, frightened eyes locked onto mine, and I steeled myself from softening towards her. “This is going to happen, Ginger. You and I both know that Wildman will kill us both if it doesn’t, and that’s after every one of his brothers fucks you raw.” I hesitated, giving her time to digest that. “You want that to happen?” She shook her head, a lone tear making its way down her cheek. I wiped it away with my thumb. “No more resistance from you, and I’ll make it as easy on you as I can.”

Review – Southern Attraction by Kaylee Ryan


Southern Attraction was a seriously sweet romance which I found I enjoyed very much.  Normally I like my books with more spice and sin but the easy comfort I felt reading Southern Attraction was like welcoming a long-time friend home from a very long trip.  I enjoyed the heady anticipation and deliciousness of the tease I found reading this book.  Our hero, Mike, is a true gentleman, having met our heroine while she was already in a relationship.  He can’t deny he is attracted but he doesn’t poach.  He is so swoony and romantic, it was very easy to fall in love with him.  Jamie, our heroine first met Mike when she comes to visit her best friend and knows immediately that a relationship with him would never work but that the relationship she is already in is no longer working either.  She leaves town, and Mike, and determined to settle for nothing less that what Mike makes her feel.  But upon her return to help her friend plan her wedding, she is shocked by how much she feels still for Mike and these feelings they both feel can’t be denied.  I really liked Jamie and  her open, friendly nature and her drive to succeed.  You never doubt the love she feels for her friend and you know that if she can feel that type of loyalty and love for a friend then the person she chooses to share her life with will be loved completely and unconditionally.  She was a delightful character, fresh and vivacious and full of positive energy.  There are so many romantic moments between Jamie and Mike that don’t include sex that I forgot how wonderful the anticipation of a romance can be when it’s not “wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am” and I’m grateful to Ms. Ryan for reminding me.  Mike and Jamie have obstacles to over come…she’s a city girl with big career dreams and he’s a country boy running his family bar, there is no way they can make it work…or can they?  Southern Attraction made me laugh and cry but mostly it made me sigh in utter satisfaction.  I was enchanted from the first word until the very last and I’m definitely going back to get the other books in this series so I don’t miss out on one minute of what seems to be a great series!  4.5 stars!

I had everything I ever wanted, living the dream, at least that’s what I always thought. The night we met, we had an instant attraction, but she was with someone else. When we reunited a few months later, that pull was still there, stronger than ever. So strong, that even though she was hundreds of miles away, I pursued her. I told myself that I just wanted to get to know her. Deep down I knew it was more.


I never understood the draw of living in the middle of nowhere. Born and raised a city girl, I never had the desire to leave. Who would have thought a weekend trip to the country would have me questioning myself? It was more than just the country; it’s him. The way he looks at me, treats me, that smooth southern

Am I willing to give up my legacy for her?

Am I willing to give up my dream for him?

Can two souls come together by the force of Southern Attraction?
