His Obsession Next Door {In the Line of Duty} {Book Review}

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for free from Cathryn Fox for my review. The opinions in this post are 100% of my own and may differ from others.

Title: His Obsession Next Door {In The Line Of Duty}

Author: Cathryn Fox

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

Once the fuse is lit, there's only one way to extinguish the flames.

Years ago, Cole Sullivan made a battlefield promise sealed in a dying man's blood—to take care of his best friend's little sister. Now he's forced to live with the fact that Gemma Matthews is completely off limits.

Though Gemma's always had a crush on the darkly handsome, far-too-serious explosives expert, she can't forget the sting of his rejection. Now here they are, ten years later, with Cole still stubbornly in the role of protector. But when she catches him watching her from his house next door, she jumps at the opportunity to show him everything he's been missing.

Cole can barely keep his cool at Gemma's bedroom window performance. He's never been a risk taker, but her all-out campaign of seduction ignites a fuse that can only blow up in his face.

All thoughts of backing off are swept away in the heat of reckless passion. Leaving him wondering how he will live with himself amid the razor-sharp shards of his broken promise.

My Review:

      Ok so I should have had this review up a few weeks ago. But real life has gotten in my way the few past weeks. But anyways I was so happy to be able to read this book from Cathryn Fox. I love a good book with a man in uniform. His Obsession Next Door if you haven't read it the 1st in the In The Line Of Dity series. 

    I fell in love with Cole right away when he 1st walked into Gemma's vet clinic with his injured dog. Cole is a solider who has come home from the war scarred, both emotionally and physically. I also think Cole carries the death of his best friend a little too heavily on his own shoulders. 

     Gemma was a lead female character that I actually liked. Gemma is strong and independent. Though at one point she was just a little pushy. But that push was just what she needed to get Cole to realize they belonged together. 

       I really liked the flow that Cathryn  brought to the story. There was just the right amount of drama and romance, a little bit of laughter. And just the right amount heat between Cole and Gemma. 

     I thought this book was a great start to this series and can't wait to read more of them. I definitely give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it.

       You can purchase His Obsession Next Door on Amazon, B & N, Kobo and on iBooks.

Club Sin: Freed {Book Review}

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley for my review. The opinions in this post are 100% of my own and may differ from others.

Title: Club Sin: Freed

Author: Stacey Kennedy

Genre: Erotic Romance

Book Description:

Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.

Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.

My Review:

     This is the fourth book I have read from Stacey Kennedy and the fourth or actually 3.5 book in the Club Sin series

     If you enjoy steamy erotic romances with a mix of BDSM mixed in than this is the book for you. Though I do have to admit to me at least this book is a little tamer than the other ones in the Club Sin series. Not that, that's a bad thing. Also this one doesn't really take place in Club Sin but more in Ethan's club, if you can call where he goes a club. It's more of a hotel room. But this book is more about getting to know Mary and Ethan and watching them grow as a couple. And watching Mary grow as a person. 

     I'm glad Mary got her own book. I mean we know her as the doctor who gives everyone the exams to anyone who wants to join Club Sin. But it was nice to see her as person and get to know more about her. It was great to watch as she grew as a person and let go of her past with her husband Charles (who also had been her Dom). There were times Mary brought tears to my eyes, but there were also times I felt she was being very stubborn.

   Oh what can I say about Ethan. He was such a gentleman. It was nice to see an older Dom in the series. It was also great to see how great he treated Mary and showed her she could love and have a Dom again. 

    I think Stacey Kennedy hit it out of the park again with the one once again. Though I did miss the club at points and the characters I'm used to seeing. Though luckily Dmitri does pop up a couple of times in this book. 

   I'll give Freed 4 out of 5 Stars and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the Club Sin series or steamy erotic romances. I can't wait to read Porters story next!!!!!! 

     Club Sin's: Freed  comes out Nov. 4th you can Pre-Order on Amazon, B & N, Kobo and on iBooks.

**Book Sale** What A Lady Craves by Ashlyn Macnamara


Title: What A Lady Craves

Author: Ashlyn Macnamara

Genre: Steamy Regency

Book Description:

 Ashlyn Macnamara weaves a delicious tale of two souls torn apart by circumstance and reunited by fate—perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries.
Henrietta Upperton is about to marry Alexander Sanford when he rushes off to India to salvage his family’s fortune. Then comes the devastating news that he has wed another. Eight agonizing years later, a storm washes Alexander ashore—injured, widowed, and hunted—and one glimpse of his ruggedly handsome face reawakens the desire Henrietta thought she had buried deep inside. Her body still yearns for his touch, but she’s determined not let him wound her again . . . not this time.

For Alexander, honor always comes first. But only now does he realize that when given the choice between two virtuous deeds, he picked the wrong one. On the run with his life in tatters and a pair of daughters in tow, Alexander burns for Henrietta. He knows he does not deserve forgiveness. And yet he longs to wrap his arms around her warm body once again. What’s more, he is sure the lady craves the same.

Upside Down {Book Review}

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for free from Netgalley for my review. The opinion's in this post are 100% of my own and may differ from other's.

Title: Upside Down {An Off the Map Novel}

Author: Lia Riley

Genre: New Adult

Book Description:

If You Never Get Lost, You'll Never Be Found

Twenty-one-year-old Natalia Stolfi is saying good-bye to the past-and turning her life upside down with a trip to the land down under. For the next six months, she'll act like a carefree exchange student, not a girl sinking under the weight of painful memories. Everything is going according to plan until she meets a brooding surfer with hypnotic green eyes and the troubling ability to see straight through her act.

Bran Lockhart is having the worst year on record. After the girl of his dreams turned into a nightmare, he moved back home to Melbourne to piece his life together. Yet no amount of disappointment could blind him to the pretty California girl who gets past all his defenses. He's never wanted anyone the way he wants Talia. But when Bran gets a stark reminder of why he stopped believing in love, he and Talia must decide if what they have is once in a lifetime . . . or if they were meant to live a world apart.

Book #1 in the OFF THE MAP series

My Review:

        In author Lia Riley's debut book Upside Down you will want to curl up on the couch with a blanket for this book. Oh and FYI you may want to bring a box of tissues. It's a powerful story that draws you in from the first page and keeps you going until the very last word.

      Both Bran and Talia have problems that their running from.  I really felt connected with Talia's character in this story. Which by the way doesn't happen often for me with the female character's in books. But in this story Talia's running from the she feels she is to blame for the death of her older sister, who died in a car accident. I lost a sister years ago in a car accident. So I can understand where Talia is coming from when she just wants to get away. Also not to mention everything else she is dealing with.

     Oh Bran what can I say about Bran? He's definitely not your typical swoon worthy male in this book. Bran has his own problems that he is trying to get over. So he comes off as defensive and rude. Its obvious that he doesn't let anyone get close to him.

     I loved the banter between Bran and Talia. Their banter kept a very deep and emotional book light at times. The characters were well developed and relatable and the plot is believable and flows very well. Also I thought the steamy scenes were done tastefully.

    I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read the next book in this series, to see where Bran and Talia take us.

                     You can purchase Upside Down  on Amazon, B & N, Kobo, iBook.

Taking Control {Book Review} & Giveaway: 9/8/14

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from the author for my review. The opinions in this post are 100% of my own and may differ from other's.

Title: Taking Control {Kerr Chronicles}

Author: Jen Frederick

Genre: Romance/Erotic

Book Description:

I thought I needed only one thing in my life--the money and power to crush one man. But the moment I laid eyes on Victoria Corielli, my thirst for revenge was replaced by my craving for her.

No rule would keep me away; no obstacle too large to overcome. Not her will, not our differing social positions, not my infamous past. When she lost everything, I helped her pick up the pieces. When she trusted me with everything, she sealed her fate.

I've convinced Victoria she can put her heart in my hands. Now I have to protect it--from her shady stepfather and my business rivals, from enemies known and hidden. I'll do anything to keep her. And I might have to prove it, because now Victoria''s risking more than her heart to be with me; she's risking her life.

My Review:

Ian Kerr and Victoria "Tiny" Corielli are back in the second book Taking Control. I have been feeling very Ian deprived lately so, I got this book just in time to get my Ian fix. This is the second book of Jen Frederick's that I have read and if I hadn't become a fan reading Losing Control. Than I definitely became a fan reading Taking Control. If you haven't read Losing Control yet than you can check out my review for it HERE. I would definitely suggest that you read it first before trying to read Taking Control because you may be a little confused reading it. But I must say that Jen Frederick hit it out of the ball park with this book.

     It was really refreshing to see this book written from Ian's POV, and than every now and than having Tiny's thrown in. It was nice being able to see the way that Ian thought and saw things. I feel like that in this book we got to learn more about Ian than we even did in the first book. We got to see a side of him that I don't think Ian lets many people see of him. And if I wasn't in love with Ian before, I'm definitely in love with him now. He's still his sweet, sexy, dominate and possessive self. But we also get to see more of the business side of him in this book.

    Tiny's dealing with the death of her mother in this book. I still found Tiny to be likeable and her normal feisty self in this book. But I will say there were a couple of times I wanted to yell at Tiny in the book. I kind of felt that she became a little whiney in this book. I mean I know she was dealing with thing's. But still she was kind of complaining about that fact that she was no longer a bike currier and was stuck behind a desk now. I do have to say that by the end of the story though Tiny redeem herself.

    I really liked that the plot of this story picks up from where Losing Control ends and that the story flows nicely. I also enjoyed that Jen brought back a few of the other character's from the first story. If you enjoyed the first book of this series than you won't be disappointed in this book.

   I would definitely give this book 5 out of 5 stars and would recommend it to any of my friends.

             I do not have any of the pre-order links yet but will post them as soon as I can.
