The Viper (Untamed Hearts 1), Kele Moon (Review)

The Viper, Kele MoonThe Viper (Untamed Hearts 1), Kele Moon

Katie Foster a high school teacher with a douche of an ex is hot, curvy and lives in the world of pta meetings and good ol America. Marcos Rivera a gang member who may die in the life and a fighter who lost his shot when he took the wrap serving a prison sentence. These two opposites should not have met let alone want or fall in love for each other.

Bookswagger Marcia: Five Crowns, major swagger a must read. Love this story, loved it. This series features characters from the authors Battered Hearts (my review of book one in the series) series which takes place in the small country town of Garnet. Garnet is the training ground for UFC fighters and where Katie happens to live.

Katie and Marcos meet and have this attraction to each other that is hot. Marcos is realistic without being over the top, which drives me crazy and why I cannot take a lot of supposedly bada$@ reads because if I feel I can take you, you ain’t hard. Marcos gives Katie peaks into the life, much to his distaste leading to his “Young and The Restless” dramatic walk away. I don’t want to give it away but the ending is surprising and enjoyable, not how I saw it going. But this heroine has moxy, she did not have time for his walk away. I am ready for the next one!

Straight to the Swagger: Hoxxx bad boy (he does not need any tt’s in his hot). Case of opposites attract, with a female who may look sweet but has the guts to stand up for her man, who is tough but used to letting people judge him.

Multicultural Note: Marcos is Puerto Rican from Miami, who is commonly mistaken for Cuban. Found it interesting because I have seen this play out for friends and I liked how the author realistically inter-weaved parts of his culture and did not just give a character a Hispanic name and tag her book as multicultural which drives me nuts so mad cool points for Kele Moon.

Outlander I Can’t But I Tried (Outlander Hop 10/15-10/31)

kiltOh Outlander,

the series always stacked in bookstores, independent sellers and used bookstores across America. I tried, I did. I have held you in my hands countless times. You have been recommended to me almost as much as A Coldest Winter Ever (this might be a black thing, ask me about it I will share). The series came out and I actually had to ask what it was about because I really did not know this book and television series were one in the same.

For some reason I have not been pulled in…

Me the lover of Highland Romances!

So I tried again this time via an audio book annnnnd. I have to say I am happy you’ll are loving it and I am supporting your love but I got off the train before we reached the destination.

If you love the series, or want to give it a read, try your hand at wining the entire series below!

Four Horse Men MC, Cynthia Rayne Series (Review)

Sweet PerditionFour Horse Men MC, Cynthia Rayne (Series Review)

The Four Horse Men, a series that takes place in a small town in Texas. This MC is bad. You know the usual, booze and boobs. They are different in most of the men went away for a brief period so the ole women were in charge for a while which means these men have a different outlook on life. This came through in book 1, Sweet Perdition.

I loved, loved Sweet Perdition, the hero was bad enough to keep it popping but man enough to realize he was into the hot Librarian ( I refuse to say sweet) Elizabeth. Classic case of opposites attracts. She was way more than he expected, they both had a few stereotypes they applied to each other going in and they ended up surprising each other. For .99 cents I would def give this read a go, it has some grit but not really dark and angsty which I liked.

Now cut to book two… it is getting darker. So I see this series getting darker, which I am not sure I like but to be frank I think most readers enjoy darker MC reads so I am not mad at the author, just sad for me (frownie face). Book 2 starts with the hot Cowboy a former rodeo star who we meet in book 1.

Hot as HadesHe meets stripper/bar hop Daisy while in a rival club doing work for his MC… Mmmm intriguing right? Well Daisy is there looking for her little sister. I enjoyed reading  Daisy she is an ex-Marine. Again another case of opposites attract. This story lagged a little in spots but had way more suspense (hence the darkness begins). We are introduced to book threes hero and heroine as well, I assuming it will be Daisy’s sister who is a submissive with the dark dominant MC brother (so ya I will be reading book three).

Straight to the Swagger: So if you think this sounds interesting and you like a good MC read that pulls you in and slides into darkness this might be the series for you!

makemesweat My Most recent Evernight Publishing read Make Me Sweat (Bringing the Heat 1), Avril Ashton, had those hot bedroom scenes although they did not necessarily take place in the bedroom! When I bought it I got it on sale for .99 cents although it is back at regular price now. But never fear with the 50 percent off deal they have going on now you can still rack up on some great reads.

Undercover federal agent Simon Dakin wants Ever Marcille not knowing she is the contact standing between him and his target arms dealer ghost. Ever is charged with watching new potential client Dak aka the federal agent Simon who is after her boss (although there is more but I refuse to spoil it for you). These two think they are serving cross purposes when it comes to life outside the bedroom but time will defiantly tell.

Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. Dak put it on Ever scene one and kept it up. Ever is a strong willed woman and really did not know how to take a guy who could handle her. After a drastic first marriage which she dove in head first and is still paying for her guard is way up but Dak shows her he is a good guy who is tougher than her and can handle all her spunk. There were some stilted moments for me hence the three stars but overall good read, interesting light suspenseful quickie.

Straight to the Swagger: Hot did I mention hot XXX scenes, if you like a dominant man who does not take you all the way into bdsm land, you will enjoy this read.

Lover Claimed (Dark Wolf Enterprises, 2) A.M. Griffin (Giveaway/Tour/Thoughts)

Lover Claimed (Dark Wolf Enterprises, 2) A.M. GriffinLover Claimed_Small

(Book Description Provided) 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.

Perilous Risk, Natasha Blackthorne Release Spotlight/Giveaway

Perilous RiskPerilous Risk, Natasha Blackthorne

Book Description (provided) Heartbroken and disillusioned, Rebecca Howland is done with all men.

Especially noblemen. Past a certain age, she knows her previous life of carnal indulgence and grand adventure is over. Or so she thinks. Back at home, whilst working in her family’s shop, a moment of compassion entangles her in an old battle between two powerful, bitter enemies. A commoner, Rebecca finds herself falsely accused of a heinous act by a vicious member of the aristocracy. In grave peril, she turns to the one man she thinks can help her.

Stephen Drake, now inexplicably Baron Drake, has always desired Rebecca.

When she turns to him, he vows to protect her at all costs, especially from the dangerous life he lives. The stakes are high and time is running out for her … and for him as well. Stephen finds himself driven to ruthless actions that threaten to kill the fragile bond between them.

Years ago, Rebecca forbade herself to love Stephen Drake. Now he’s back, no longer the young man she remembers but a dark and dangerous stranger. When he demands a fortnight of her complete submission in return for his protection, his sexual dominance ignites carnal passion that makes her feel alive like never before. But … dare she trust a man with too many secrets?

Perilous Risk

Regency Risks, Book Three

By Natasha Blackthorne

 

His stare pinned her and she remained rooted to the spot like a cornered hare.

He lowered his head. She felt her eyes widening. Her heart beat harder and harder, deafening thunder in her ears.

He put his mouth to hers.

She couldn’t breathe. Couldn’t think. Couldn’t make a move.

Oh, God. Oh, God save me…

His full lips pressed hers, warm, soft, intense. She’d never known a man’s mouth to be so lushly sensual and yet so deliciously firm. From that touch, pleasure surged through her, tightening her nipples, and sending sparks of fire tingling into her belly and outward, all the way down to her toes. She couldn’t suppress the shudder that wracked her head to foot.

He lifted his head. Then he watched her, closely.

Edginess built inside her, combining with and intensifying the arousal pulsing in her blood. She licked her lips then let her breath out in a ragged sigh.

“Open to me, Rebecca.”

He’d spoken softly, oh so softly—but the steel beneath the gentleness sent shivers all over her. And not a little tingling excitement. Unable to bear the determined heat of his gaze, she stared at the bridge of his elegant straight nose. Dazed, afraid of him, yes, holy heavens yes, but far more frightened of the feelings that were rapidly leaping to life within her.

No, this couldn’t be happening. She had kept herself safe all these years since Jon. No emotionally dangerous entanglements. She was past all of this. He should be out chasing some young opera dancer tonight. She should be home, fast asleep in her chaste bed.

Safe.
