Jackson (Sexy Bastard #4) ~ Eve Jagger

Jackson (Sexy Bastard #4)



I thought I knew what I wanted.

The perfect life, the perfect wife.

And then I met Skylar.

Turns out what I wanted wasn't what I needed.

She's spontaneous, beautifully chaotic. She's an irresistible storm about to let loose. She dances like a firecracker and finds the sexiest ways to get in trouble. She breaks into buildings and knows all of Atlanta's best taco trucks. She doesn't check the boxes on my list--she blows my list out of the water.

I thought I knew what I wanted, but now all I want is her.


But our lives are so different. She's chasing adventure and determined to never settle down. I'm climbing the ladder to success, setting the groundwork for my ambition and the family that I hope to build. When our worlds come together, will they fit together or will they clash?

First I must say….Holy Hotness Batman! I knew Jackson was going to be scorching, but his and Skylar’s chemistry is off the charts! Wow. I could not get enough of these two and I love how all the sexy bastards made appearances in this story.

Jackson is calculated, head strong and determined. He plans everything out, even a checklist about what attributes his future wife should have. He doesn’t stray outside the lines and he is extremely focused on his job. That is until Skylar knocks him for a loop.

Skylar is smart, sassy and a complete wild card. She marches to the beat of her own drum and is not ready to settle or slow down. Commitment makes her run in the other direction due to her shattered heart. She just wants to live life and have a good time.

While Jackson and Skylar’s “relationship” starts out in an interesting place, they quickly realize they can’t get enough of each other. It’s exciting, thrilling and scary as hell. I didn’t know if they would spontaneously combust or sabotage their own budding relationship due to their fears. Skylar doesn’t fit in to Jackson’s mold of what his future wife would be and Jackson makes Skylar feels things she swore off after her last failed relationship.

Eve did a fantastic job with Jackson and Skylar’s characters. I wanted to reach in and smack them a couple times so they could get their heads on straight. The sexy bastards and their ladies brought Skylar into the fold, which was hard for Skylar to accept and it just shows what an amazing family these friends have become. I loved Jackson and Skylar’s story and cannot wait for the next Sexy Bastard!

Into the Nothing (Broken Outlaw Series #1) ~ BT Urruela





Xander Evans has been on the road for many years. Never settling. Always moving from one place to another, unable to let go of his past. He lived a tragic childhood, spending most of those years in foster care. He's never felt like he's had a home. That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he's ever known.

Paige Watson has it all. A loving family, beautiful home, and a great career. The only thing she's missing....is love. After escaping an abusive relationship, she opens her heart up to a stranger. He is unlike any man she's ever met. He came into her life and turned it completely upside down. Everything is perfect. That is, until one fateful night.

A night that would tear the Watson family apart, never to be put back together again.

A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.




I am so freaking proud of BT! Into the Nothing was really good. The story line pulled me in from the first chapter and I couldn’t put it down. BT’s writing was clean, straightforward and intriguing. His characters had their own personalities and they were written really well. I couldn’t help falling for Xander and loving Paige.

Xander is sexy, strong and a complete gentleman, but he also has secrets…. Secrets that cause him to move from place to place and not really have a “home.” He’s honest and direct with everyone he meets, but doesn’t really open up to anyone, until Paige.

Paige is a genuine sweetheart; beautiful AND smart. The minute she sees Xander, she’s struck by his rugged hotness. He comes to her rescue and instantly earns her father’s respect. After coming over for a Watson family dinner and a subsequent job offer, Paige is able to start breaking down Xander’s walls. There’s something special about her that he can’t resist. She just gets him.

There are a couple plot twists that I didn’t see coming and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. There were moments where I choked up and others where I wanted to beat someone with my kindle. I cannot wait for the next Broken Outlaw Book!

I really enjoyed Hook and Ladder 69! I mean hot firefighters, both men and women…Hello! What’s not to love? What I really liked about this grouping of stories is that we got to see a little glimpse of all the firefighters. There were some looking for long lasting love, while there were others who just like to give pleasure. There was even an M/M couple that I loved as well.


This was a super fun, exciting and HOT read. I loved all the writers work and the chapters were quick and scorching. The only downside was that I didn’t get enough of these characters. I really would have liked to see where some of these characters headed and if they truly stayed the lone wolf or if they settled down. I definitely want more of them!

Paradise Found: Cain (Paradise Stories Book 2) ~ L.B. Dunbar






“I hate that I love you,” she said. “You left me.”

“I lost you, there’s a difference. Now that I found you, I intend to keep you.”

Lost.

I’d tasted the sweetest fruit of temptation, and I wanted another bite. I had promised myself before, but once wasn’t enough. The savory flavor of her lingered long after I’d lost her. Contending with the pressure to return to the fight, in order to prove myself to my father and the world, I had to let her go.

Found.


It has been a year. Sofie Vincentia and I had played a dangerous game. For one night, we pretended, only to discover our farce was real. I’d lost her, but I hadn’t stopped searching, hoping for her return. I was used to getting what I wanted, so when she didn’t come to me, I had to go after her. This would be the greatest fight of my life.

This is a great follow up to Paradise Fought: Abel. We got a glimpse of Cain and the burdens he bears in Abel’s story, but in Paradise Found: Cain, we really see the demons he fights. His father, the man he killed, Abel, Sofie… all of them contribute to his burdens.

I really enjoy LB’s writing. The way she is able to take biblical references and turn them in to a modern romance is really impressive. I got hooked right in to the story line and fell for these characters.

The push and pull between Sofie and Cain made me want to throw my kindle. They both want each other, but through a series of misunderstandings and some legal documents, Sofie is super reserved and Cain is ready to do anything to have her back. He feels like he lost her once and never wants to lose her again. Sofie, feels that Cain left her once, what’s stopping him from doing it again. Gah!


I really liked Cain and Sofie. Even though, Cain is supposed to be a snake, I mean he is the Cobra, he has a romantic side and is completely in love with Sofie. Sofie is tougher than she gives herself credit for. I don’t know if I would have been able to hold off this sexy fighter the way she did.  Sigh.

Tiger Shark ~ LP Lovell



 London’s square mile is witness to a revolution, a new breed of business woman. They call us tiger sharks. 


We out-earn, out-work and out-play our male counterparts. We work the system, play the game and most importantly, we win. In a city full of sharks only the most ruthless make it to the top of the pool.


The number one rule: never sleep with the boss. Ever. I had no intention of breaking it until I met my new boss. No matter how strong my resolve, Landon Banks can smell weakness like a shark smells blood in the water, and I’m bleeding.



The hunter becomes the hunted, lines start to blur, and I have a choice to make. Screw or be screwed. Of course, I never was much good at taking it like a bitch. Landon Banks will be learning to grab his ankles if I have anything to do with it.



Things are about to get interesting in the game of predator versus predator. Who will come out on top? 




Strong, independent woman meets sexy, overbearing, annoying boss, but with her rules, there’s no was that Georgia will sleep with Landon, right?

Landon is hot! Period. End Of. And to add to it, he’s wicked smart and a great businessman. Immediately, he gain’s Georgia’s respect, but almost as fast, he completely pisses her off. He unsettles her and not most people do.

I love Georgia’s fierce independence and go-getter attitude, but she has made so many rules for herself that she comes off a ridged to Landon. He know she puts on a fa├žade when dealing with clients or men that hit on her, but he just wants to see the real her. She’s beautiful, smart and feisty. But can he own her like he wants to?

LP wrote a great story with Landon and Georgia. Their chemistry was off the charts and the little twits she put in kept me on my toes. Really enjoyed it.

All the Rage ~ T.M. Frazier







They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.

I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.

You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.

And I'm a killer.

This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the s**t buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.

Without dwelling on the past.

Until him.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger...



All the Rage is a STANDALONE.


So I have to say, I am partial to King and Bear, but I do love me some Goon!!! Yes, All the Rage can be read as a standalone, but I liked the King and Bear references. I love these two characters that T.M. has created. Yes, we get to see a part of Rage in Lawless and Soulless, but Nolan is new and super sexy.

Rage is a bad ass chick! She’s unique and hard core, yet super hot! No one ever knows what hits them. She had a really hard time dealing with her “anger issues” when she was younger, so she was thought of as odd and different. While learning how to disguise it, she still had it bubbling inside her.

Nolan, the sexy “ex-hockey” player we meet has a broken leg and broken spirit. He’s angry at the world, but after a near death experience, he’s re-thinking his approach. A gorgeous blonde with bright blue eyes has kind of influenced some more positive thinking (wink wink).

Rage and Nolan are super hot and scary in their own ways. While they may not know each other’s secrets at first, they both feel this connection….this pull that they can’t ignore. While Nolan may understand it more, Rage realizes that Nolan is the first man she ever really “felt” something for…and that scares the shit out of her. 

T.M. wrote another fabulous book that I couldn’t put down. There was one scene where I was like, no that's not going to happen and then I was like, Uh, WTF?! There were some twists in there too that I was not expecting!!

I loved Rage and Nolan, but they couldn’t overcome my love for King. T.M.’s writing is well thought out, suspenseful and it pulls you right in to the story. She is definitely one of my favs!
