Servicing the Target (Masters of the Shadowlands #10) ~ Cherise Sinclair

A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He’s never been tempted to join in. But everything changes when the notorious Mistress Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Domme armor. 

Now, he’s set his sights on the beautiful Shadowlands Mistress. Maybe he’d considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time. He’ll trust her delicate hands to hold his heart. And if she wants to whip his ass on the way to an outstanding climax, he’s just fine with that too. 

Sure, he knows she likes “pretty boy” slaves. And he’s older. Craggy and rough. And six-five. Minor hindrances. The mission is a go.

It has been a while since I read a BDSM story and I enjoyed Ben and Anne’s story. While Ben is not into being a slave 24/7, his love for Anne will have him doing anything for her. The fact that they have both served in the Military is a major turn on. The fact that they can understand and relate to each other is even better.

They both have had their own issues that they have had to deal with (PTSD for Ben and Anne having a childhood where she constantly moved around) and where Ben would wear his heart on his sleeve, Anne has been more reserved. The love and support from all the friends in the Shadowlands is just what the couple needs to get through their own Master/Slave dynamic. Will they work it out?? You’ll have to read to find out.

The Truth of Tristan Lyons (Legendary Rock Star # 4) ~ LB Dunbar

 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png  photo Synopsis black scratch_zpst2tpkl6v.png


I understand why I have the nickname. Hey, what can I say? I like women. All women. It doesn’t matter what shape, size, or color. I’m even into sharing. I’ve done it all, seen it all, but I’m at an all-time low. Who wouldn’t be? My best friend is missing. My uncle’s an asshole. I don’t know who I am without The Nights. We are a band of brothers, soldiering through the world with our music. Only, our faithful leader is gone, and everyone else in the band is falling for the oldest trap: love. Love is a lie. It is painful. It is hurtful. 

I need a break. I want to be alone. I'm not prepared to share the exclusive home on the Island. I'm not prepared for her. I don’t know who she is or why she's here. She tells me to call her Ireland. I tell her my first name only. Originally, I don’t want to believe she doesn’t recognize me. Bass guitarist for The Nights, come on? After a while we both play the game. Secrets are another form of lies, aren't they? 

Our fantasy will crash to reality too soon. Secrets catch up to you. The truth has to be told. It confirms what I already know: love is a lie. 

Until her.

::Sign::The Heartbreaker. That man could break my heart any day::fans face::

Tristan Lyons is one emotion wreck, constantly drinking himself in to oblivion so he doesn’t have to feel. He could have any woman at the drop of a hat, but when Arturo’s absence, Guinevere’s pain, Lansing’s baby momma drama and Perkins happy nuptials get to be too much, Tristan goes to the Cayman Islands for some peace.

Ireland will not take Tristan’s crap. Natural beauty that she is, she doesn’t feel wanted or sexy. She feels as if she is an object for her parents to pawn off and her uncle to get his cheap thrill off of….Ewe Gross! When Ireland meets Tristan, she dumps his alcohol down the drain and demands a change. What Tristan finally realizes is that he could have hurt Ireland, like his uncle used to hurt him and he stops drinking, cold turkey.

After the initial withdrawals, Tristan starts to hang with Ireland and they start to form a bond. Only finding out after he has started to fall for her, she is to be married to another man. (No spoiler on who that other man is, but you have to read so you can find out!!) Seriously, that still happens in this day-in-age?? Ireland’s family is in some kind of debt she doesn’t know about and all Tristan wants to do is save her, but she has to stick up for herself first.

I loved this twist on the story of Tristan from the Arthurian Legends. The pure chaos at the end of this book has me thirsting for more. ::Spoiler Alert:: Arturo’s re-appearance, Guinevere’s response, the Nights new album, Lansing’s new baby and Tristan’s baby….Holy Hell we’re in for a wild ride!!

Slate (Breaking the Declan Brothers, #2) ~ Kelly Gendron

"Some boys will keep it, some will break it, and some boys, they just won't want it. You gotta be careful who you give your heart to..." Slate Declan

First loves, we all got them. Mine is Slate Declan. He was kind, gentle, and caring. Still, he managed to break my heart. So I put miles between us, and eventually, my heart healed. 

I haven’t seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I’m visiting my hometown, I’m going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I'll remind him of what he has lost, and then I'll prove to him that I’ve moved on. 

It should be real easy, right?

Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there’s another problem. How do you break someone’s heart when they no longer have one?

Slate….. poor damaged, but oh so sexy Slate. He’s such a great man and everyone loves him. But he can’t love himself. Ever since the fire that burned his grandma’s shop to the ground he hasn’t been the same. After nearly a year in the hospital and several months of rehab, pain killers were all that would kill the pain. So now he fights for the rush and the pain. When the pain comes, he takes the meds. It becomes his vicious cycle.

Rayna has always loved Slate. At first, it was as the best friend that kids have, but then developed in to more. They became inseparable, up until Rayna was offered a position in Michigan. She wanted to stay with Slate, until she found another woman in his bed. She up and left the next day. This summer trip is the first time she has been home to the Bayou since.

When Rayna sees her Slate damaged and broken, she locks them in to the basement for 3 days. She is going to help Slate kick his addiction and give him a fresh start. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. With talks of spankings and hard rough sex, these three days are beyond intense. I wanted them to continue to give their relationship a shot after the three days, but Slate didn’t know if Rayna was staying and Rayna wasn’t sure if Slate would stay clean.

I Love the Declan Brothers!! Cannot Wait for Zeke!!

Wrath: Fire and Steel Motorcycle Club Romance (Fire and Steel MC #2) ~ Kaylee Song

 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png

 photo Synopsis 1_zps0trdk3oe.png
He's the sinner, she's the savior, but can she save him? 

Note: This is a Stand Alone Book with an HEA ending. 

The Savior 

Emma Snow has spent her life fighting to live. The product of a broken home, she clawed her way to independence, but at a cost. Now, in her junior year at a top tier college, she has everything within her grasp. Until she meets him. 

Aidan is wild and reckless. Everything she isn’t and everything she should avoid. Her attraction to him is undeniable. 

Emma escaped darkness before. Will surrendering to him only trap her again? 

The Sinner 

Wounded Army Specialist, Aidan Crowne never thought living at home could be this hard. A year into his new life, and he is already spinning out of control. No job, no prospects. 

Fire and Steel MC offers him a place at their side. Joining the club means he’ll have to sacrifice everything that makes him human and give into his true nature. 

His Wrath. 

Is it worth the cost? 

Can Emma deny Aidan when she's the only one who might lead him to safety? 
 photo Review 1_zpsjhbet8ch.png

Aiden (Wrath) is rough around the edges and living day by day. Since he returned from Afghanistan, he’s felt that he hasn’t had much to live for. He’s been with women, but nothing long term. The women see a wounded war vet and they flock, but their relationship usually dissolves before anything takes off. Every one see’s him as a hero, except himself.

 photo Wrath Meme_zpso1h5htrj.jpg

Emma is one strong, independent woman. After having to survive her mother’s addiction and her mother’s pimp, she is able to get them locked up. She’s paying her way through school by working in her cousin’s bar and her grades are her main focus…Until she meets Wrath. As focused as she is in becoming a physical therapist, she can’t deny the pull she has with Wrath. When her mother’s pimp gets released from jail and starts to taunt her, it’s going to take the whole club to hunt him down and force him to stop.

I enjoyed Emma and Aiden…I mean Wrath’s story. They are both stubborn and strong willed, which causes a few waves, but makes the makeup sex that much more HOT! I also like that we get to see Rage and Layla again and see more in to the Fire and Steel MC.

The Legend of Arturo King (Legendary Rock Stars #1) ~ LB Dunbar

 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png

 photo Synopsis 1_zps0trdk3oe.png

My name is Arturo King, and I’m told I’m a legend in music. My band is called the Nights and we got our start at the underground Round Table in New York City. Raised by a foster father, I didn’t know the extent of my inheritance until I was twenty-one, and it was all more than I bargained for. I wanted to play the guitar and rule the world with song, but I learned I have a mother from old money, a dead father who was once a real estate mogul, and a record company that needed some rebuilding. 

Mure Linn, my friend and mentor, has been by my side through it all, teaching me to play, strengthening my lyrics, and guiding me in the music industry. There was one area he couldn’t guide me, though, and that was love. Guinevere DeGrance changed everything for me, I suppose, including the reason I’m here learning the legend of my life without remembering any of it.

The legendary rock star series begins…

 photo Review 1_zpsjhbet8ch.png photo 4 metalsilver stars_zpsrqr9npjs.png
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I heard this was fan fiction of the Legend of King Arthur, but LB Dunbar did a fantastic job transforming the characters in to a rock band and completely immersing them into the music business.

Arturo and Guinevere’s story is one of lust, love, happiness and tragedy. While Guinevere watched Arturo for a long time, being the daughter of the Leo Degrance, who owned the bar where The Nights got their start, Arturo doesn’t really “notice” Guinevere until one night she is in the crowd in a gorgeous floor length white dress. He is enamored with her and has to find out who she is.

When they begin start to spend time together, they both fall fast and hard. Unfortunately, Arturo has been around and has a bit of a shady past that it causes Guinevere’s jealously to flare, yet Guinevere has some secrets she hasn’t told Arturo. This was an emotional rollercoaster with some hot sex, secrets, tons of angst and one of the biggest cliffhangers I have ever read. Not for the faint at heart…..but so good.

The Temptress ~ C.J. Fallowfield

 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png
 photo Synopsis_zpshy1vcpnk.png

There’s just something about a French accent, something that conjures images of romance, sex and passion. There’s a reason French is called ‘the language of love.’

Lulu McQueen runs an exclusive honeytrap agency, to test the fidelity of rich men for their suspicious partners. While her business flourishes and her track record in the field remains unbroken, earning her the nickname of The Temptress, her personal life isn’t so successful.

A trip to Paris, years ago, led to the most erotic encounter of her life with Luc, a charismatic, dominant, irresistible Frenchman. For one night she experienced bliss on a scale she’d never encountered and fled in the morning, ashamed of herself, but her Parisian one night stand was burned into her memories and no one since had compared.

With no one available on short notice, Lulu steps in to lure Mrs. Le Grand’s rich husband, for an extortionately high fee. Lulu’s in for the shock of her life when she finds her mark at the hotel bar. Luc Le Grand still has a face and body to make Adonis weep. He exudes confidence, masculinity and raw sex appeal.
The question now isn’t whether Lulu can tempt him, but whether she can resist him, retain her reputation and secure her fee, or whether she’ll fall under Mr. Le Grand’s spell. Again. photo Review_zpseibjxw6t.png  photo 5 metalgold stars_zpspm2epe1k.png  photo The Temptress Collage_zpsobcscezu.jpg

I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book!! I couldn’t stop talk about Luc and Lulu’s story with my friends. I was sucked in from the first chapter and couldn’t put it down. This is definitely one story of second chances, emotional roller coasters and angst that you do not want to miss!!

Luc Le Grand…. I mean what else is there to say, but WOW! He’s sexy, confident, and just one HOT alpha!! When Luc Le Grand knows what he wants, he gets it. Period. When he sees Lulu McQueen in the club in Paris, he sets sights on having her for the evening. When she refuses his initial attempt, he tries to woo her, which he never does. There’s something about Lulu that gets under his skin and he will do whatever he has to, to have her….the first time they meet and when they are re-connected.

Lulu McQueen is one kickass woman. Strong, independent and beautiful, Lulu tends to fall too quickly and tries to protect herself from Luc’s advances. She knows he’s a man that she would not be able to get over. After giving him a chance and having the best day ever in Paris, they have one night of steamy, hot, off-the-charts sex. By the next morning Lulu knows she has some strong feelings for Luc and flees before he wakes up. Finally, when she gets the courage to call him, she realizes she’s lost his number.

The way these two re-connect is set up by none other than Luc’s wife….Yes, people I said wife. But we soon find out that neither Luc or Lulu is over each other. Even though Luc has not strayed from his wife for the 5 years they’ve been married, Luc would for Lulu (especially since Luc has not had sex in 5 years. Holy self control!!). Lulu is not ready to be with Luc until she knows the truth of why his wife has hired her to lure him in to an affair and until she can tell Luc a secret that she has kept for 6 years.

Luc and Lulu’s chemistry is off the charts HOT! He’s an alpha who knows what he likes and demands control. Lulu loves to relinquish that control to Luc, which causes for some steamy, fast and hard sessions in the sheets. Cannot wait for “All That Glisters.”
