CRUSH ON YOU

A 4.5 star contemporary rom-com by Amelia Wilde

This is a warm smooch of a tale about how first, second and sometimes even third impressions aren’t always correct. I’d describe it as the perfect ‘pick me up’ book. Its both a book you should pick up, to read, and a heart warming tale that will pick your spirits up and leave you with that feel-good factor.

Crush on you, is a funny, gentle, smoking hot, romantic comedy and is everything you didn’t know you needed. It has two of the most adorable, yet sexy, characters in Roman and Jenny. This is a couple you just won’t be able to get enough of.

At school Jenny was the awkward geeky girl, the one who had to teach herself how to fit in. Roman was the hot guy everyone wanted to notice them, and he’s not grown any less hot with age. Let’s just say he wasn’t quite the arrogant player that Jenny remembered from her high school days. In fact both main characters were incredibly easy to like and are part of what made this a truly great read.

Whilst I want to describe this as quite a ‘sweet’ romance, that’s because of how it made me feel rather than ‘heat’ levels. This has plenty of hot bedroom (and waterfall, and elsewhere) scenes. The pace was perfect, quick enough to completely hold my attention throughout but not so fast that I ever got lost. The moment I dipped my toes into this book I was just buoyed along on a journey of love, secrets, mistakes and laughter.

I really, really enjoyed this book and I’m sure you will too.

Blurb

She’s my new employee. So she’s 100% off-limits.

And that’s not all.

Jenny London is the girl everyone overlooked in high school, including me. I had no idea that she’d gone from ugly duckling to brunette bombshell until the moment she stepped into my office wearing a red bikini and a smile.

If this is revenge for ignoring her in school, she’s serving it hot. And if it’s not? Doesn’t matter. The sight of her around the office is driving me wild. 

Too wild. I have a resort to save and a business to run. I need my head in the game, not tugging down the straps of her bikini.

I have to stop myself from falling. Office romances are forbidden for a reason: to protect the Bliss Resort and its legacy.

But let’s be honest…it’s already too late.

DADDY EVER AFTER

A novella by Measha Stone




A hot ‘little’ read – 4 stars

***Note*** This story first appeared in the Daddy’s Demands anthology, it’s been tidied up and, since the original book is no longer available, released separately.


Daddy Ever After is set in the Annex, that appears in both Beast and Tower. This can very much be read as a stand-alone story, though the other books are well worth reading too!

It has a very sweet feel to it, being fairly low on angst, but has plenty of heat too. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Daddy Dom book if there wasn’t some spanking, so if that offends this isn’t the book for you.

Jaelynn was very naive and on a path to her own destruction, thank goodness she had the amazing Hunter to warm her bottom and set her on the right path. This couple were just amazing together and I fell in love with both them and their story.

Since this is a fairly quick read, and I don’t want to give any of the plot away, I won’t talk about what happens. Instead I’ll just say that, whilst on paper I might have passed over this story as insta-love and a naive heroine aren’t always my thing, the wonderful writing and believable connection totally hooked me into it.

Highly recommended to all DD/lg fans, as well as anyone looking for a hot, quick and very feel good read.


It was only supposed to be a weekend contract. But Daddy had other plans. 

Weekend play dates are my stress release. Contract a girl, have some fun, get back to business. But Jaelynn isn’t like my other girls. There’s more to her; more substance, and a sensuality I can’t just ignore. She’s also a naughty girl, but I have no trouble bending her over my knee, or to my will.

She thinks she’s holding all the cards this weekend, but by the end, she’ll know who her Daddy Ever After really is.

BLURB:

Gabrielle Duval belongs to me.

I’ve made sure of that.

Now it’s time to eliminate the man who kept us apart.

My father.

The devil himself.

His reign of terror ends here.

On my terms.


Delivered, Book 2 of The Devil’s Duet, is not a standalone. It should be read after reading Depraved. Those who are triggered by dark story lines, please proceed cautiously!


My Review
The author can write an entertaining story but for me this was just very much an ‘OK’ read. It wasn’t terribly bad, but nor was it terribly memorable. The writing style is fine and I found both the story and dialogue easy to follow, but it just didn’t capture me.

Delivered is the second book in a duet, with both books needing to be read in order. I was interested enough at the end of Depraved to continue the story. Sadly I have to say that I really, really struggled to connect to, or even like, JD/Julian. Whilst I love a domineering alpha male hero, I can’t stand one that is arrogant and shows the heroine very little respect. For me JD tipped over into this category, with his constant inability to trust Gabrielle or to tell her the truth. 

“I’m staying,” she says calmly. “Because we’re partners, or we’re nothing.”


It felt like the latter to me, how many times do I need to hear that he avoids answering your questions? LACK OF RESPECT! However , I’ve read books with similar ‘heroes’ who also annoy the hell out of me, yet most readers swoon over, so don’t rule the book out on that count alone. I have to say that I much preferred Smith and would have picked him over JD any day of the week.

At times I had to push myself to finish this, which is a shame because over all it was a good romantic suspense. It just draaaaaaaged too many times. Honestly I think this could have had chunks cut out and been trimmed down to a longer novel or two novellas. The constant ‘I know he won’t tell me anyway‘ ‘I’m keeping it secret for her own good‘ got old very quickly.

“JD.” He stops in the closet doorway, one hand on the jamb. “Don’t do this. Don’t shut me out.”



The fact that DW, this great evil man who the whole plot rotates around barely makes an appearance was disappointing. It would have been much grittier and edge of seat if we’d actually had more than 2 phone conversations. Yes he’s the President of the USA but he could have at least had henchmen lurking menacingly, lots of implied threats etc. A case of too much tell and not enough show.

I didn’t really feel invested until we were past the 50% mark of this book. Then the last 20-25% felt rushed, with a far too easy resolution, no real explanation of what happened and leaving me feeling as though justice had most definitely NOT been served. It seemed as if it was approaching a word limit/target, so the author just quickly sketched out an ending to fit the space left.

Oh and who killed Georgina and, more importantly, why? That part of the story line disappeared into nothing. I guess it might be continued in future books but then leave it as a mystery rather than a dropped story line. I bought into this a duet, not a duet but with unfinished story line that continues in a third or possibly fourth book. Don’t make it a hot potato and then never mention it again. There was also the whole truth about Deliliah/Mae thing that came out of left field. Did I miss the truth of her employment in book #1, (I don’t think so) or was that a bit of a continuity error?

This review sounds really negative and for me that usually happens when I read a book that has the bones of a good story but that just misses the mark. It wouldn’t have taken many tweaks for me to rave about this book. It had a good plot, well written and consistent characters who inspired emotion (even if it was irritation!), some excellent twists and turns and in the first book, really good pace.

About Eva

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

The Five

A Dark Romance/Romantic Suspense

by Lily White

Release: March 20, 2019



Every time…

Every single time…

Every single Lily White book grabs me from page one and beats my head repeatedly against it’s sheer brilliance until I’m so dizzy I can barely breathe.



Fantastic. Awe-inspiring. Mind blowing. Heart crushing. Soul searing. Take every amazing, wonderful, out of this world descriptive and apply it to The Five , and even then you won’t come close to conveying just how good this book is.

Five years, five neighbours, five older men, five victims, five times

Whilst you can sort of guess some of the twists, and unlike so many other authors whose work falls by the wayside, Lily very cleverly weaves her tale so that there aren’t the usual plot holes. So many twists in other books don’t stand up to closer scrutiny, I don’t believe that can be said of The Five . In fact I even stupidly doubted her at one point. I was naive enough to think ‘well if I’m correct, I’m not sure how she’s going to explain…. or how she will convince me that….’.

HA! FOOL! Of course the magnificence that is Lily White will pull the twists off. Not only that but she will pound you into the finest dust, to be blown away on the wind, whilst she does it. My heart bled for Rainey and, despite all the fucked-up (pun intended) stuff she had done, even at the end I totally and utterly adored her. When she lost Rowan, a little piece of my heart crumbled too.

This magnificent story is told in first person, with ‘present day’ chapters from Justin’s point of view and most of Rainey’s being her retelling the previous five years. 

The number five was important for some reason, but there were already so many possibilities as to what it could mean.

This is a romance that isn’t a romance but yet is a truly great love story that will last beyond time on this mortal coil and span into the infinity of the great ever after. Despite not being able to love herself, Rainey was so very much loved, into death and beyond, by one wonderful, if broken, man.


Do yourself a favour and read this. You’d be a fool not to.


I promise you I’ll take care of you, I promise I’ll always protect you……. I will love you more than anybody Rainey, I promise you that……I’ll always come find you…promise…..You and me forever, promise.

Blurb:  

Every man who meets Rainey wants her. Having lived a life of sex, drugs and manipulation, she is a temptation with far too many secrets.
When psychologist, Justin Redding, is assigned to Rainey’s case, he has no way of knowing the tale of debauchery he will encounter.
On a twisted path of love, loss and murder, Rainey leads Justin through the events of her life.
Death follows Rainey…
Justin fights to discover her secrets…
But will he discover the secret of THE FIVE in time to resist Rainey’s ultimate seduction?
“This book deals with sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers.”

Excerpt:
“No, Rainey. Let me look at you. I love looking at you. Even when I close my eyes, all I see is you.”
I dropped my arms, my legs trembling. This was Rowan, the sweet, kindhearted boy I loved. Yet, in that moment I feared him. The adrenaline was wearing off and I was suddenly so cold.
His lips parted as he stared at me, those blue eyes I knew so well slowly taking in my body as heat blazed behind them. He’d grown so large, twice my size at least, and it had never occurred to me how strong he was until now. Nobody would pick on him anymore. Not without getting their asses handed to them in a fight.
“Can I touch you, Rainey?” His eyes lifted to mine. “Is that all right? For me to touch you?”
“Always,” I whispered, unable to put any strength in my voice. “You can always touch me.”
He stepped forward and I stepped back out of instinct. He would never hurt me. Not Rowan. But what I saw in him now was the predator that had always lingered just beneath the surface. He wasn’t a monster like his family or David. Not him. He was something else entirely.
Pain shot through his eyes when I moved, his hands fisting at his sides. “Do I scare you now?”
Shaking my head, I forced my mouth to move. “No. It’s just -“
“Just what?”
“You’re different, Rowan. A man, I guess. You’ve grown.”
Blue eyes held mine, the darkness in them seeping away, but not entirely. His lips pulled into a tight smile. “You need a man. I’ve become exactly what you need. For you, Rainey. Not anybody else. Just for you.”
I drew in a rattling breath. “Touch me.”
Rowan moved forward and I held my ground, craning my neck to look up at him. He was shaking, his skin so cold that I knew I had to fix him somehow. “Rowan?”
“Yeah?”
“Will you kiss me?”

Hunted and Claimed: Delta James




For all the Wayward fans who may have thought the Alpha guys have it easy, meet Riley Gentry a.k.a. The Masked Marauder. 


⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐


I FLOVED this book, IMHO it’s the best one yet. In fact I was that drawn into the story I read it in one day. This features Riley and Cameron, we’ve not really met either character before, though both have been hinted at/been in the background.

I either want to BE Riley or marry her (even though I’m straight and been married for 24 years). God that woman is kick-ass. Cameron was pretty decent too, though he paled in comparison to her absolute amazingness. My word she led him a merry dance with her determination to see justice served. I felt that he showed a great deal of respect for Riley, even though he too wanted to protect her a little too much at times.

In earlier books I’d got the impression that many of these super strong females had been spanked into submission by their alpha’s and were pretty much toe-ing the line. The last book threw a few doubts around that, this totally blows it out the water. There is a much stronger feel of discontent amongst the women, not particularly regarding their male so much as the patriarchal nature of their society as a whole. There was mention of an underground network that helped females escape less enlightened mates, and we discover that those Bae Diogel girls haven’t been quite as well behaved and meek as it might first appear.

Now if you don’t like alpha males who decide when their mate has been naughty, and spank/welt her ass soundly when she is, then you probably won’t like this. SO STEP AWAY, OR AT THE VERY LEAST PROCEED WITH CAUTION. I’d hate to see negative reviews on a book that clearly states that it has spanking and that in this parallel universe shifter males are in charge.

Another thing I will throw out there is that this finishes with a part of the story line left ‘hanging’. I wouldn’t call this a cliff-hanger and we do see Cameron and Riley’s story reach a HFN point BUT the ending almost isn’t an ending. HOWEVER that isn’t a criticism as I can see quite clearly that it’s a lead up to the next book. Part of me feels like Riley should continue to be the heroine, however so far each book has featured a separate couple, so I’m not making any assumptions. I do think she and some of the Bae Diogel girls will be playing a significant role in that book though.

I have a sneaking suspicion this may be the penultimate book, though I really REALLY hope it isn’t because I quite simply haven’t had enough of this world yet. However they do say to always go out on a high, and with how the series has been shaping up so far I do have high hopes for the next book.

Whilst this has an ongoing background story, and characters from previous books, I firmly believe you CAN read it as a stand-alone. It contains a few very mild spoilers for previous books (not many though) and seems to explain things I already knew in a way that didn’t feel tedious or repetitive, but would allow someone new to the series to pick up on what they’ve missed.

If you love shifter romances or domestic discipline stories then I highly recommend this book. I can’t wait for the next one.

Blurb:

She thought she could run from her mate. Then he lassoed her.

Riley decided years ago that she would be better off on her own, but when the alpha of the local pack finds out there’s a lone wolf causing trouble on his turf he takes matters into his own hands.

As far as Cameron Nichols is concerned, Riley will be joining his pack whether she likes it or not. Her only choice will be whether to submit to his authority with or without needing to be stripped bare and spanked over his knee until she is kicking and crying and promising obedience. When she chooses the latter, the Navy SEAL turned cowboy is more than happy to oblige.

But Cameron knows instantly that Riley isn’t just a feisty female in need of an alpha’s firm hand. She is his mate, and she knows it too, despite her best efforts to deny it. No matter how many times she tries to run, he will always chase her down, punish her thoroughly, and then mount and claim her so roughly that all she can do is scream her helpless, shamefully intense pleasure into the pillow as her body betrays her and surrenders ever more completely to his demands.





Author Synopsis:

For all the Wayward fans who may have thought the Alpha guys have it easy, meet Riley Gentry a.k.a. The Masked Marauder. 

Riley, lone wolf, alpha herself, has dedicated her life to rescuing as many women as possible from the rogue packs who have kidnapped them to use for breeding.   Using the cover of working as an executive chef for hire, Riley has been very successful in getting women out and to safety with the packs in the Coalition.  But her rescues have bought her to the attention of the Ruling Councils and the kidnappers.

Enter Cameron Nichols, powerful cowboy alpha of the Wolf Meadow pack in Galveston.

Believing the masked women is using his territory as her home base, Cameron intends to discover her identity and bring her under the protection of his pack. 

Two strong-willed alphas — fated mates.  Who will rescue who?

Excerpt:

Standing side-by-side along with their mates, Roz and Skylar grinned at either and each delivered a staggering blow to the other’s mate.  Maddie tripped Griffin as Catherine smashed a priceless urn over Marco’s head. Marco seemed unphased by the blow and brushed the chards of pottery from his hair.  Declan had a death grip on Ava who managed to stomp on his foot and bite him anyway.

Darby broke free from Jean-Michel and launched herself at Cameron knocking him to the ground.  As Jean-Michel fisted her hair to pull her off of him, she grabbed a small chair, turned within his grasp and broke it over his head.  He shook his head, grinned at her but didn’t loosen his grip and growled at his mate in a menacingly affectionate tone.

Cameron got to his feet and was out the front door just in time to see an SUV speeding up the driveway toward the main road.

🎇 🎇 🎇 🎇 🎇

~ I really enjoyed this pacy, dark-swirled romantic suspense ~

This is a series where each successive book has been even better than the last. I really do recommend reading A Father’s Insistence if you enjoy a good romantic suspense that dips its toes (and feet) into the dark. However, whilst it is a complete story in it’s own right, I do recommend that you read the other two books in the Dark Sovereignty series in order to fully understand the suspense element.

So I picked this up in the evening, intending to only read a chapter or two before going to bed. Yeah, big mistake. For me this was TOTALLY one of those books where you ‘just need to read the next few pages’ before you can put it down. I didn’t even dare look at what time I closed the book, but it wasn’t until I’d reached the very end of the epilogue – oops. I can totally go to work on a few hours sleep.

I found it easy to connect to Theo and Joanna, they felt believable and were both incredibly likeable. The author did a very good job of writing the deception element of the story. Why wouldn’t someone believe their father’s version of events, when there has never been anything to raise your suspicion? I did feel he accepted the drugging incident too easily, but that was only a very minor part of the story. Particularly as it was totally believable that subsequent events would have distracted him from pursuing it further.

Joanna felt broken without feeling weak, her responses to events were believable and well explained. Whilst I struggled to totally believe Theo was utterly in love with her after such a short time together, Stockholm Syndrome and her view of him as a rescuing hero made it easy to believe Joanna’s feelings. What is undeniable is the strong chemistry between the pair, they certainly heat up your kindle.

The epilogue felt different to the rest of the book, I’m not convinced it totally worked for me. However, I loved knowing what had happened to people etc. though I would have been just as happy with a very simple event showing how the ‘Society’ had changed.

This trilogy was my introduction to the author, but it’s definitely not going to be the last book I read by her. Her writing, character development, exciting plots and ability to weave a twisty tale leave me needing more of it.


Blurb:

One of five women who endured horrific trials to win the hand of Nicholas Cavendish, Lady Joanna Nethercutt suffered greatly throughout the ordeal, ultimately losing to Victoria Hamilton. She swiftly finds herself sold by her own father, who’s determined she’ll be of use to him yet. For a year, she’s “trained” in preparation for marriage to Victoria’s brother, with whom she’ll be expected to produce heirs that will one day strengthen and continue the very society responsible for all of Joanna’s torment.

In the space of a breath, Theodore Hamilton is thrust into a secret society he knew nothing about, and married to a woman who seems terrified of his very existence. Suddenly, his carefree yet honorable life is filled with secrets and shadows, allies and enemies, leaving Theodore unsure who to trust…starting with his broken bride. His lure to the delicate beauty is tempered by external influence, lies and manipulation from all sides.

In this breathless conclusion to the Dark Sovereignty series, Theodore must decide where his loyalties lie, and race to destroy the evil men responsible for the immeasurable suffering of everyone he holds dear—including the wife he never wanted, but can’t possibly live without.
