The Blurb:

Tonight, I’ll be her fantasy man…

I have a thing for my next-door neighbor’s sexy best friend. I like to picture all the things I’ll do to her, imagine the noises she’ll make as I own her gorgeous body in a hundred different ways, hear her screaming my name…

Okay, maybe it’s more than a thing.

Ryssa’s a knockout, sure, but she’s smart, and kind, and funny, and sweetly naïve, too. She triggers all of my protective instincts, but I won’t let myself have her. I may be one of NYPD’s finest, but in my mind, I’ll always be that worthless, troublemaking kid from Hell’s Kitchen.

She deserves better.

Which is why, when I find out her best friend’s setting her up with a night of anonymous, blindfolded sex, I lose my everloving mind.

If anyone is checking off every item on Ryssa’s secret fantasy list, it’s going to be me.

And with her firm “no talking” rule, I’m going to have to get real creative once I decide to make this beautiful girl mine…

UNLAWFUL ENTRY is a hot as hell standalone M/F romance with a cop determined to fulfill every fantasy on your list. As with all my books, there is no cheating, and a HEA is guaranteed!

My Review

After reading Private Prick(book 2) and really not liking it I was worried about starting this book. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. Ryssa was cute nerdy, sweet, smart and she knew what she wanted in bed. Zach was so yummy. The sexy cop neighbor that was a dirty talking beast in bed. He was sweet and protective. I could feel the connection between Ryssa and Zach, and the smexy time was hot! I really liked the ending. Sweet HEA! Over all I really liked this book and I am glad I gave Ember Cole a second chance.

My Review

4 Fast love Stars

Fast Fury was my first time reading a Kaylea Cross book and it was good. I liked her writing 

style and the flow of the book. Abby was very likable. She was smart, sweet, and brave. Kai 

was very sexy and protective. The smexy time in this book was smokin' hot. Lots of great 

action. I just wanted it to be longer. I needed more of a build up to Abby and Kai's 

relationship. Other than that it was a great read.

Private Prick

Book Review Private Prick (Carnal Mischief Series)

Title:Private Prick

Series: Carnal Mischief Series

Author: Ember Cole

Date Published:   July 9th 2018

The Blurb:

I was only supposed to be a distraction…

When I get the call that a tenant is trapped in the building’s decrepit elevator, I climb down the shaft, drop in through the ceiling...and come face to face with Bekka Zoler, the sexy little redhead who’s starred in more than one of my fantasies. 

And she’s pissed.

Turns out her boyfriend failed to mention he had a fiancée, and now she’s feeling all sorts of vulnerable…and claustrophobic. I have to do something to distract her while we wait for the repairman to get her out of this metal box.

So I kiss her. 

It’s either the best or worst idea I’ve ever had, because next thing I know, I have her pinned to the wall and I’m doing wicked things to her body.

Bekka’s not even remotely ready for a relationship, and I can’t blame her. Problem is, the chemistry is insane between us, and I know she feels it, too. 

It’s time to convince the gorgeous spitfire that I’m the man for her, and this thing between us will last longer than one night.

PRIVATE PRICK is a hot as hell standalone M/F romance with a very…dynamic, dirty-talking hero. As with all my books, there is no cheating, and a HEA is guaranteed!

My Review

1.5 Not For Me Stars


"I'm not staying here in this teeny, tiny, dark, awful, airless, enclosed"-her throat moves as she swallows, and panic flashes in her eyes-"box with some stranger."- Bekka
........ a few minutes later....

"The only regret I'm likely to have is if you don't make me come before the goddamn elevator repair guys get here." -Bekka
Private Prick was my first book by Ember Cole and it really didn't work for me. The first few pages in I felt like something was off. It felt awkward. But I pressed on wanting to give this book a fair try. It never really got better for me. I had to force myself to finish it. I didn't hate it but I didn't like it. Adam was okay for me. Nothing special but okay. Bekka on the other hand took this book from boring to annoying in 5 seconds flat. She was just so stupid. She was like "I'm trying to find a real connection, but all I find is losers!" She was going around sleeping with, and having oral sex with men within minutes of meeting them and she was surprised that they hit it and quit it? Trying to find the real thing on Tinder... really? Don't go looking for a man at a bar and be shocked if you find a alcoholic. I'm totally cool if you want to go out and have sex for the enjoyment of it. But don't go handing your shit out like it's gum and then be all like "All I find is dogs? Where are all the real men?" 

"For you being hung like a goddamn elephant," she says, making my ego surge along with my cock. "I had a hunch you would be." I cup her ass hard, holding her against me. "Did you also have a hunch I'd end up fucking you senseless before the day was over?" She giggles, but her eyes go a little wider. "I did. Am I psychic?"-Bekka and Adam

"Let's set you free, shall we?" "God, yes." She jerks the zipper down, then reaches into the waistband of my boxer shorts. "Oooh, you're a boxers guy," she says. "I wouldn't have guessed."-Bekka and Adam

Bekka came off immature like a high school girl trying to play like a grown woman. Oh and she was a bitch. At least She had condoms. Score one for safe sex. Still it's hard to feel bad for a woman that was upset that her "boyfriend" had a fiancée when she was five minutes into meeting the hero in the elevator, and she was letting him go down on her. Other than the absurdity of Bekka and her boyfriend issues, the book felt forced and rushed. I didn't feel a connection between the H&H nor did I personally feel a connection to the book. It kinda came off like a awkward porno where the plumber comes to fix the pipes and gets his "pipe" clean instead. It was a bit cheesy at times. 

"Please fuck me, Adam." "Yes, ma'am." She grins. "I love it when you talk military to me."-Bekka and Adam

"I-look, you're a really nice guy." Is there anything worse than being told you're a nice guy? "-but I just don't see us dating,"-Bekka and Adam

Than after going on about not being able to find a good guy she slept with Adam(a good guy) and then told him to get out they can't date. I wonder why she can't find a nice guy? Is it because she is a stupid bitch? Yes it is! I don't know if you can tell but I couldn't stand Bekka.. I'm sorry but I didn't like this book. I may try this author again. I believe I have a second ARC book for her but this one was a miss for me.

My Review

5 Everything Stars

May have mild spoilers

It's Not Over, by Grahame Claire, was a great read. When I was asked to read this book I went into it completely blind, having only read the synopsis. In my head I figured from the synopsis, that it would be a second chance/contemporary romance, it was much more. From the opening line of this book I was totally hooked. This read took me for a ride. Though it was a contemporary romance it was also suspenseful, mysterious, angsty, heartbreaking, and sweet. This book was written and flowed so well that I couldn't believe this was the debut book for Grahame Claire. 

I’m going to spread your legs and feast on your pussy until you won’t be able to think of anything else but how good I make you feel. You’ll be so addicted to me, I’ll have to go into hiding to rest my mouth.” -Daniel

“I don’t know what’s going on. When I asked him, he shut down. But I’m scared, V. This afternoon, his eyes looked like they used to. Before you came to us. There was nothing in them. They were just… cold.”-Muriella

The hero Daniel was an enigma in the start of the book. He was also really intriguing. I was very drawn to him, I wanted to figure him out. Figure out his past and why he was doing the things he was doing. There was so much depth to Daniel. He was Protective, sweet, loyal, smart, and sexy. He could also be cold, withdrawn, and at times he could be cruel. Daniel may have been a bad boy that played on both sides of the law, but he was a good man. Vivian was great too. She was strong, independent, and a fighter. She had some serious sass, but she was also sweet, caring and down to earth. I love that she fought for their relationship, their love. That she showed her vulnerability and pain without fear, and that she was honest. My heart broke for her and at times I could feel her pain as if it was my own. 

“If you were attempting to hurt me, you succeeded.” He closed his eyes, and it almost felt as if he couldn’t stand to look at me. “I don’t want to hurt you, V. I’m trying my damnedest not to.” The words were whisper soft and so full of anguish, my heart broke for him. I pushed up onto my toes, brushed my lips against his, his forehead fell against mine. “Then stop lying to both of us.”-Vivian and Daniel

“I need you to make me a promise.” “I don’t know if I can, but I’ll try.” “No matter what, you will fight for me. For us. I can’t be with someone who won’t do that.” He cupped my face, his solemn eyes looking deep into mine. “That’s a promise I can easily make.” -Vivian and Daniel

When the book starts it's 8 years into Daniel and Vivian's relationship. The book jumps back and forth between the present and the past, when Daniel and Vivian first fell in love. I loved getting to see how their relationship started. I also really, really loved that Vivian didn't just jump into bed with Daniel. She made him work for it, spend time with her, get to know each other. Causal sex in books is fine. I read them all the time, but not everyone is like that, and it was nice to see something a little different. There is some push/pull in this book and it worked well. The secondary characters, Muriella and Stone were interesting too. Their budding romance and Muriella past has me hoping their book comes out soon. I really loved this book. I am so glad I was asked to read it. I have been in a book funk for a while now and this book was different enough that it got me hooked and keep me entertained.

“It’s not over. Not for us, princess.” I bent and smashed my mouth to his. “I knew it wasn’t,” I said against his lips. “Thank you,” he said softly. “You saved me. Again.” “No one will ever take you away from me. Not even you.” He stood and set me on his desk. His eyes glittered as he looked down. “Not even me.” -Daniel and Vivian

Vampire's Faith

Book Review Vampire's Faith (Dark Protectors Series)

Title:Vampire's Faith

Series: Dark Protector Series

Author: Rebecca Zanetti

Date Published:   June 19th 2018 

Date Read:    June 13, 2018

The Blurb:

The Dark Protectors are Back!

Vampire King Ronan Kayrs wasn’t supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn’t supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn’t supposed to finally touch the woman who’s haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds.

Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they’re hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy—that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.

My Review

5 The Dark Protectors are back Stars

**Warning this review will contain copious amounts of Fangirling and a liberal sprinkling of curse words AKA **

OMFG to say I am a Rebecca Zanetti Fan would be a gross understatement. I FUCKING love Rebecca. Like crazy fangirl love! I haven't read a book from her that I didn't love. My favorite series of her is the Dark Protectors. I was so sad when the series ended. I went through serious withdrawals. I craved that shit bad! Did like 3 rereads, bought all the books in paperback so I could pet them, and then read the Realm Enforcer series just to get a little more time in the DP world. So when I heard that Rebecca Zanetti was bringing back the Dark Protector Series, well I may have had a fangirl freak out.

I seen Vampire Faith on Netgalley and prayed I would get it. When I seen I got it, I may have screamed a little bit. My ass may have danced around the house a some,*cough* lost my shit*cough* whatever. This book was so good. From page 1 it was a start to finish thrill ride. Ronan Kayrs was totally sexy and everything I have come to expect in a Kayrs male. Who is Ronan Kayrs you say? Well I'm not telling, but I can tell you that I fell madly in love with him. He was a major bad ass warrior, a protector, at times playful and all alpha! I loved his backstory. Dr. Faith Cooper was great too. I loved how smart, and brave she was. There was also a naive side to her that didn't want to believe there was pure evil in the world. Even though I really liked Faith I found myself at times annoyed with her rash decisions. I understood where she was coming from, but she made choices that endangered not just herself and Ronan but Garrett as well. No one messes with my mini Talen! 

Ronan and Faith together were cute and at times reminded me a little of Talen and Cara. Which was cool because I love them. It was so good seeing Benny, Logan, Garrett, and Dage again. The plot was very good, and I can't wait to see where Rebecca takes this series. My only complaint was I would have liked more of the past couples to be in this book. I was hoping to see some interaction between the new characters and the originals. I just kept waiting for some Talen time. I wanted to see how Emma, Faith, and Kane got along. I was hoping to see a little family reunion. I have high hopes that my favorites will play a bigger part in the next book. Still overall this book was great. I started it last night and finished it this morning at 4am. I couldn't put it down.

Beyond Control Texas Trilogy

Book Review Beyond Control (Texas Trilogy )

Title:Beyond Control

Series: Texas Trilogy

Author: Kat Martin

Date Published:   May 29th 2018

Date Read:    May 24, 2018 

The Blurb:

When Victoria Langford got engaged, she told herself to give love a chance. Six months later, she's on the run from her angry, abusive ex-fiancé with her four-year-old daughter and nowhere to go.

Seventy miles north of Dallas, the Iron River Ranch is pretty much nowhere. That’s what its new owner, Josh Cain, wanted when he came back from Afghanistan. Big skies, quiet nights, no trouble.

One look tells Josh the pretty redhead with the adorable little girl will give him trouble of the most personal kind. But he’s seen trouble before, and he doesn't scare easy. Not when “accidents” start happening around the ranch. Not when Tory’s best friend back in Phoenix is abducted and brutalized. Not even when it looks like their current problems are only the tip of the iceberg.

But if he gets too close to fierce, determined Tory, Josh knows his nights are going to be anything but quiet. And that’s one possibility no amount of training can prepare him for . .

My Review

                        5 Safe Haven Stars

I love me some Kat Martin books. My first taste of her work was when I got her books in the BOSS INC series. I loved all 3 of them. So when I seen this one on netgalley I knew I wanted to read it. I am so glad I got to read this book. Beyond Control was so good. I loved every single minute of it. Josh was amazing. He was protective, sweet and sexy! A former sniper in the Marines Josh was a total badass. Plus I have a weakness for men in uniforms! I could just picture him in his dress blues and fatigues .......yum!

Sorry I think I drooled a little. Anyways Tory was great too. I love how smart and brave she was. She didn't take stupid risk, or run blindly into danger. She did what she had to, to protect her daughter, herself and the man she loved. Josh and Tory had major chemistry. The sexual tension was just rolling off the pages. The plot was very good. I like the domestic abuse trope, because it does happen in real life. I love anything that brings light to the problem of domestic abuse. Plus I love when the domestic abuse trope has a strong heroine to show that women do have power and can fight back. I love that Tory was able to lean on Josh for protections and still be strong in her own right. This book had a ton of action, but it had sweet down times too, where it built up Tory and Josh's relationship. Tory's ex Damon (the bad guy abuser) was super evil and gave me the creeps. Overall this book kept me on the edge of my seat, gave me all the feels and made me want to go back and read the first two books in this series. I loved it!
