It’s a good thing Gabriel Huntington has a special way with difficult subs and sees the gorgeous Lexi as a delicious challenge.

Can happily ever after start with a list? Grey Andrews thinks so.

After three years of searching, he isn’t any closer to finding her than he was when he started out. Carrie Tucker, an aspiring mystery writer and divorcée struggling to make it in the world of advertising, turned her focus from men to her career after dating too many creeps and losers. She’s finally earned her big break, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the first female creative director in a hot New York ad agency. So what if it means working nights and weekends? It’s not like she has a social life anyway. Is Grey’s marriage list a failure or will a chance meeting at a fiction-writing conference prove the marriage list to be the key to Grey’s happiness after all?

This book started slow for me, but ended with a bang! I enjoyed how the relationship between Lily and Adam developed from the beginning of the book until the end. This was a good read that showed how important family is to the development of people over time.

BLURB:

The best relationships usually begin unexpectedly. Puerto-Rican, American Liliana Serrano has never been one to let others determine her future—certainly not her pack of three overprotective brothers. She always stands on her own, which is exactly how she entered her arrangement with Adam Aquilani. The hot formula one driver is aloof, detached, and not interested in relationships. Fresh off a broken engagement with a cheating fiancé, no-strings-attached sex was just what she needed. Except one year later, she never expected their hook-ups to have consequences. Haunted by his past, Adam Aquilani is a man who lives on the edge. The absence of commitment and emotional attachment in his year-long relationship with Lily was just what he needed. Until he discovers the rules have changed, and he must decide to let her go, or give her full access to his well-guarded life. As the two take a journey of discovery, secrets are revealed which test the strength of their connection. Can they accept what is? Let go of what was and accept what will be?

Zander, veteran brother of Lily of Need You Now in the Martha’s Way series, is the middle Serrano brother we met in that series. He is coming to grips with being out of the military and living with the mental and physical consequences of war. He meets Colbie, literally by accident. She meets him the night she ran away from her wedding. These two broken individuals dance around each other and their issues until they discover that in the midst of all their dancing they have healed each other. This first installment of this series has set the stage for what appears to be a great series.

BLURB: 

There are wounds that never show on the body. For twenty-nine years, Colbie Bennington does as expected with an eternal smile stained on her lips. The biggest chances she’s ever taken can be counted on one hand, three fingers to be exact—her battered red chucks, painting her toenails a vibrant blue, and her wedding dress. Always the dutiful daughter and a Stepford fiancée, she has never acted on impulse, never been in love. She’s never lived. On her wedding day, Colbie ends a toxic relationship, drops the fake smile, and says, “I can’t do this anymore.” Navy SEAL Zander Serrano returns home broken and burdened with a volcano of remorse. Too trapped in a mental war to be at peace and too damaged to be at war, he shuts the world out. The last thing he expects is to feel, especially for a runaway bride with her own baggage. Two empty hearts marred in different spots find themselves drawn to one another. Each with their own scars. Some, the world can see. Others, unseen to the naked eye. They say two broken people should not be together. But for Colbie and Zander, their attraction is undeniable, unexpected. Can two souls with fractured parts be the best cure for each other’s wounds? Starting over is never easy, but sometimes in life, everyone needs somewhere to begin.

The Seduction of Sierra Leone was a page turner and full of twist and turns. When I was reading this book I was so amazed at the flow of words and how the author developed the characters. She made the heroine a smart*$$ spunky chick that took nothing off of anyone. That included the sexy protector Brandt. Which the description of him had me running for a cold shower. To add on top of that he is also dominant in the bedroom. OH MY!!! I didn’t think I was going to make it through. It was powerful sex scenes, human trafficking and bullets flying. I was on edge the entire time. Aislinn was by far my favorite character. She has that “I don’t care what you think attitude.” It made me love her all the more. Brandt melted my heart from the first time he was introduced. I like how he made sure Aislinn knew she belonged to him. She fought it tooth and nail but boy did she soak it up. I can only imagine how wet her panties were cause I was panting just reading on my kindle. Charlie was a pretty good character and wish I knew more about him. Especially since he liked Aislinn a lot. In any good book you always have to have a bad guy. So here comes Rick. Absolutely despised that man from the get go. However, his butt munchiness grew on me and things happen to him. I’ don’t want spoilers. LOL What I am about to share is on a tip of the iceberg.

Here are some of my favorite highlights in the book.
“You sure you can take it out in the heat, old man? she asked with a devilish smile.”

“Starting tomorrow, she would ignore him. Ignore him and his muscles and cute butt snd killer smile.”

“There are a few things I do not tolerate. Do not turn away from me when we are having a discussion and do not walk away from me. He was talking through his teeth, his face red. Aislinn didn’t know which attitude to take. She wanted to stay calm, but she felt her true self wanting to come through. Anything else you do not tolerate, oh great one? A smart@$$, he replied, a smile breaking through.”

“Toothless McShitty Smelly grabbed Brandt.”

BLURB: 

In the mangroves of Sierra Leone, two strangers raised a world apart find themselves inextricably connected. Seduction in Sierra Leone, the first in a series of three novels, is a fast-paced tale of murder, lust, and love that transports the reader to a foreign and mysterious world of danger. Aislinn Salameh, an American relief worker, is searching for purpose in her self- imposed lonely world. The stranger who enters her village on a blistering hot day seems more animal than human. She knows she should stay far away but can’t stop herself from being drawn to the mysterious man. Brandt Fairlane is haunted by the sins of his past. Detached from others, Brandt has spent his life alone. His line of work is too dangerous for the luxuries of love and family. When Brandt sees Aislinn and her haunting eyes, he knows he must possess her. But when Brandt’s past comes back from the dead and Aislinn is caught in the crossfire, it is up to him to keep her safe. In order to survive, they must learn to rely on one another. As they run for their lives, the heat between them becomes undeniable. Now, Brandt must not only protect Aislinn from a madman committed to stealing her away, but he also must protect her from himself. Because if Brandt steals her body and her heart, he’ll never let her go.

Wow, this was an impressive novel. It is even better than the first, Seduction in Sierra Leone and that is saying a lot. It is not necessary to read the first novel to appreciate this one but you will want to.

Madison was rescued from a human trafficking ring eight years ago by a mysterious man with emerald green eyes who shows up at her hospital in Seville with multiple gunshot wounds who might not make it. But Madison can’t stay away from him. She needs him to pull through because she never forgot the man who saved her life. When Patrick wakes up, he immediately recognizes the woman he could hardly bring himself to leave after he rescued her but now that he has found her again, he isn’t letting her out of his sight. Turns out, that is a good thing because the man who kidnapped Madison all those years ago wants her back.

The characters are so well developed in this story. They have an incredible depth and chemistry that makes them so compelling. Right from page one, you can feel for them and want them to succeed. The story line itself is also well researched and well developed. There are little cultural details about Seville peppered throughout the story giving it both authenticity and additional interest. I love how Patrick gives Madison time and understanding to come to terms with her past trauma. The way he does it is both incredibly hot and so endearing.

I can’t recommend this book enough. If you are a fan of romantic suspense, you won’t want to pass this one by. So exceptionally well written.

This was my first ever football romance. What can I say…it was a page turner until the very end. I loved the characters development throughout the entire book. I was always surprised by what happened on the next page. I felt emotions like i was siting in the living room of Griff & Lauren & rooting for them the whole time. I wanted to smack Lauren at times but also do the same to Griff. But in the end i got what i wanted all along. How much i love that little pug Spike. LOL He made the story & having those two in the mix made me laugh. Especially since personal things that took place have reflected what I have went through. Jean really made me love professional football. That never happens. So if you want a great story, laughing, crying, mad as hell, & a pug w/attitude! Then by all means grab the book. It’s totally worth it.

BLURB: 

Ten years ago, Griff Montgomery, star quarterback of the Kings and womanizer, became a stand-in father for his widowed sister’s kids. His happy family life collapsed when she and her new husband moved to California. Griff wanted his own family. But where does a “player” go to find his ideal mate? Surely not the courthouse!

Having sworn off marriage forever, Lauren Farraday barely kept her life together after her divorce. With her career shaky and depression closing in, the last thing she needed was a courtroom battle with a sexy athlete.

Forced, by a judge, to communicate, the pair came to an uneasy truce. Wary of Griff’s reputation with women, and hiding a secret, Lauren holds on to her heart. Unwilling to risk another tragedy in her life, she keeps him at arm’s length. Can the quarterback handle the truth or will he walk away, like he has in the past?

Melt My Heart

Reviewed by: Mary Ann Clarkson

 

Lexi has had to be in control of herself her whole life. Even from an early age she was taking care of herself. Now she finds it hard to let go and give control to a man. Gabriel is the Dom to tame her and make her feel safe. She wants to submit but again has a hard time of letting go. Lexi is a vet and when Gabriel finds a puppy at a job site he immediately takes the puppy to Lexi. He lets her take complete control of the situation and he appreciates how confident she is in her job. Gabriel decides to keep the puppy and takes Lexi shopping for him.

They both have been working on trust and letting go. Over the past few weeks Lexi has let Gabriel dictate certain aspects of her life. It could be small things like ordering food for her at lunch but eventually she begins to let go. They share some steamy nights together at Gabriel’s home and he decides he doesn’t want to end their relationship. He wants to get rid of the contract and be with Lexi. She is worried that the time for them to end the contract is coming soon but doesn’t want to end their relationship either. They both are afraid to say anything.

The time comes for Lexi to submit to Gabriel at the club and he knows she is very nervous. He makes her feel completely comfortable with touching her and moving around to observe the different scenes playing out. He goes to their play area and Lexi hesitates for a brief moment then takes her place at the cross. She becomes nervous when she notices people around watching. Gabriel blindfolds her so she can feel what he is doing to her. She actually reaches subspace and she has never done that before. Gabriel and Lexi have to figure out where to go now with their arrangement.

I loved this story. I was pulled into the story from the beginning and read it in one sitting. The title is very fitting since not only does the characters melt your heart but having the puppy, Zeus included just makes the whole story come together. Gabriel was such an understanding man and even though Lexi was so down on herself for being a failure he continued working with her. He saw strength in her and didn’t want to give up on her. He got to know her before he rushed her into anything. It was baby steps but it all worked out in the end.

I highly recommend this story.

Can Lexi lower her barriers and allow Gabriel’s touch to melt her heart?

Bound and Teased is such an appropriate name for this book. I was bound to this book after reading the first couple of pages. Katie comes home after 8 long yrs. away to live with her grandma. I might add that the grandma is very open minded and can be very protective of her granddaughter at times. Katie hopes that she can rekindle the fire between her and the two men she left behind.

Ry and Jed has had an ongoing relationship ever since Katie left them. Both are very dominant men but Jed needs Ry’s dominance to make him happy. They love and respect each other but they know someone is missing from their lives. It is Katie. They both are very protective of their hearts. They don’t want to get hurt again if Katie would run away. They don’t know how Katie will take it with them being truly together. They learn quickly that Katie likes it. In fact it turns her on more than they ever thought it would. They have to build her trust back and during each sex scene they seem to do just that. Katie teases us all with starting and stopping the sex scenes with the men because she has issues that are triggered from her past. But true to their words the men stop and talk her through the scene. This builds the trust back with her. It also helps her move through the past and get on with her future.

The men don’t know why Katie ran 8 yrs. ago and they don’t know why she has come back. But they will get to the bottom of it. She confesses about her father and hoping that he is the man she wants him to be. She finds out he is crooked and she wants nothing to do with him. Katie’s’ father and ex-boyfriend come looking for her and try to make her go back with them. She is very strong and stands up to them both. Both men make her happy and that is what she wants.

A must read to see Katie and her men get their happily ever after.

I enjoyed this book. This story is sizzling from the beginning and scorches through until the end. I think the love the men have for each other and Katie is beautiful. They have a relationship that the town knows about but it isn’t thrown in peoples’ faces. They are a private couple and it seems to make things work for them. Both men are great role models for the kids in the town. Jed raises horses and runs a camp for kids to learn all about them. Ry is a sheriff. Katie seems to fit in to their lives effortlessly. I would recommend this book. What a great love story filled in with some smoking sex scenes. I look forward to more books from Marie Tuhart.

 

BLURB:

Eight years ago, a naive Katie Crane ran from Ry and Jed, warned their brand of love would ruin her life. Now she’s all grown up and returning home with a better understanding of the BDSM lifestyle. After the betrayal she’s faced at her father’s hands, she worries she won’t be strong enough to submit to the men she gave her heart and virginity to at eighteen. Jed Malloy and Ry McCade are surprised and thrilled by Katie’s return to Felton’s Creek. They’d been heartbroken after her departure and had turned to each other, embracing the BDSM lifestyle without her. Katie’s homecoming sparks hope and worry. Ry isn’t sure he can keep his dominant side under control, and Jed fears Katie will see him as less of a man by being a switch and Ry’s submissive. Having Katie back could mean the beginning of everything they’ve ever wanted or the end to the only family they’ve ever known.

Seduction in Sierra Leone

The Men of FTI, Book One

Pages: 160

Heat Level: 3 Flames (Erotic Sensual)

RATING: 5 STARS

Reviewed By: Kristin Arpin

 

Aislinn, daughter of travelling parents who found herself orphaned in a foreign country, can’t seem to allow herself to feel comfortable settling down and fitting in. So she travels the world doing volunteer work, most recently building houses in war town Sierra Leone. Brandt, a former soldier turned mercenary who grew up on the streets of the same countries Aislinn travelled with her parents but saw a much darker side. Both have stumbled into a small war where they have no one to rely on but each other if they want to survive.

This was an intriguing story. The setting was one I hadn’t thought much of but reading this story, I won’t soon forget it. The gripping realism and the suffering of these people doesn’t make the news often but it should. Brandt owes a debt to the elder of the small village where Aislinn has been volunteering and he pays his debts. Nevertheless, he can’t take his eyes off Aislinn. Aislinn isn’t interested in the brooding man with the scars who never smiles but when he makes such an effort to get her attention, she can’t just say no. Then bullets start flying and they are running for their lives. Bodies are left behind. No one is safe. There is human trafficking, gun smuggling, war lords with protection rackets, and no one seems to care except this country’s innocent victims who are too poor and hungry to do anything about it.
These characters have a depth that is rarely seen in a romance novel. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect. The struggles they both go through trying to find the people they want to be rather than the ones the imperfect world made them is touching and heart breaking. I can’t recommend this novel enough.

 

BLURB:

In the mangroves of Sierra Leone, two strangers raised a world apart find themselves inextricably connected. Seduction in Sierra Leone, the first in a series of three novels, is a fast-paced tale of murder, lust, and love that transports the reader to a foreign and mysterious world of danger. Aislinn Salameh, an American relief worker, is searching for purpose in her self- imposed lonely world. The stranger who enters her village on a blistering hot day seems more animal than human. She knows she should stay far away but can’t stop herself from being drawn to the mysterious man. Brandt Fairlane is haunted by the sins of his past. Detached from others, Brandt has spent his life alone. His line of work is too dangerous for the luxuries of love and family. When Brandt sees Aislinn and her haunting eyes, he knows he must possess her. But when Brandt’s past comes back from the dead and Aislinn is caught in the crossfire, it is up to him to keep her safe. In order to survive, they must learn to rely on one another. As they run for their lives, the heat between them becomes undeniable. Now, Brandt must not only protect Aislinn from a madman committed to stealing her away, but he also must protect her from himself. Because if Brandt steals her body and her heart, he’ll never let her go.

Dirty White Candy as the title says it all. Candy is a recent divorcee down on her luck but looking to spice things up. So her BFF gives her a personal shopper, sex therapist and a fresh start. There are laughs, awkward moments and above all lots and lots of sex. This is not a book for the faint at heart. Candy really comes out of her shell and explores all different types of sexual experiences that her ex husband never could fulfill. The book feels as though all of us have been in that type of situation until we find what works within our everyday lives. The book was a growing tool for Candy. I felt as though I grew with the character. I really connected with David. He was shy and worried everything he was doing was wrong. I liked how he developed throughout the story. He melted my heart. I got the hots for John though. He turned me on a lot. Especially how he took charge, fulfilled Candy’s fantasies and then was so sweet but sincere.

When I started reading the book. I was afraid I wasn’t going to like it. I’m not huge into the sci-fi romance books. I just can’t seem to wrap my head around other worlds. However, this book changed my outlook. I felt as though I was reading the book Riddick only with different characters. It felt all to real but with the awesome facts of Carter and Sabrina fighting for their lives on Ki Crystal Planet. That was a pretty awesome planet in all. It was so hot but underneath it all these crystals lay and are actually beautiful but deadly. That was a great twist. I loved how Sabrina could remember absolutely everything.

It’s Carter Jamison’s job to catch Sabrina Rutledge and return her to her boss, dead or alive. What he hadn’t counted on was falling for her, again. She’d broken his heart once. Could he forgive her and save her? Or would he turn her over to the tyrant who owned her and walk away? When Sabrina sees who’s come after her, part of her is happy, another part is dismayed.

Shore to please follows our favorites from the aquarium while they battle threats from extremists. Tensions rise and loyalties are tested. Full of action, suspense, mystery and passion.

 

BLURB:

Tara Langley is an animal rights activist protesting against Gulf Shore Aquarium keeping dolphins in captivity. Paul “Flipper” O’Riley is the aquarium’s head dolphin trainer. Fire and gasoline, right? So why are they both itching to light the match? Annette Mardis presents Shore To Please, the next chapter in her wonderfully entertaining romance series, Gulf Shore.

Tara Langley thought she’d found the love of her life, but he betrayed her with another woman. So she buried herself in her mission: convincing Gulf Shore Aquarium that dolphins and whales belong in the wild, not in artificial pools.

If Tara had her way, Paul “Flipper” O’Riley would lose the job he loves. Flipper is the head dolphin trainer, and the aquarium’s dolphins are his babies. While he’s open to having a real family one day, the last person he would choose to be his wife and the mother of his children would be Tara.

These two should be sworn enemies, after all. He certainly swears at the sight of her. And his surfer-dude looks and lover-boy reputation aren’t exactly what Ms. Prim and Tidy had in mind when she pictured her ideal man.

But in the age-old way of opposites attracting, Tara and Flipper find themselves inexplicably drawn to each other. There’s no possible way a relationship between them could work, right?
