Sudden Desires (Sweet Promise #1) ~ Shanora Williams

Screw the ring. 
The good life. 
My selfish wife.
I have felt abandoned by her for years. Forgotten. 

But all of that has changed. 
I've met an incredible woman. I didn't mean for anything to happen with her. We were only supposed to be doing business together. But that sassy mouth, fine ass, and those perky tits got to me. It was a spur of the moment thing - both of us blinded by lust. 

Is it bad to crave a woman so badly that you'll do practically anything to hold onto her? Like make sweet promises that you know damn well can't be kept?

Don't be fooled. This newfound "happiness" may only be a f*cking fa├žade, and what's worse is that I can't let it go. 
Not now. 
Probably not ever.

Why? Because there is only so much rejection a man can take before he finally just... gives into temptation.

Holy Roller Coaster Ride….Wow. The amount of deceit, angst, drama and just plain ol’ bitchyness (Yes , it’s a word)  in this story is off the charts.

Let’s be real, Colette is a complete Bitch. She is rude, rotten, spiteful and just down right hateful. I felt bad for Griffin right off the bat. That being said, I’m not warm and fuzzy about how he handled his situation.

Angelina is beautiful, smart and right up Griffin’s alley. Interesting that she should show up and seduce him; of course all at the time she and her brother want to partner with Griffin. Coincidence? I think not. But again, I feel bad that Griffin is going through this disastrous relationship with his wife, so he deserves the compliments and ego boosts, right?
I mean at some point in a marriage, don’t you ask, “how did we get here?” GAH!

I can see there is a lot more that has happened in all their pasts and while that is hinted at through the book, the real good, juicy stuff isn’t revealed until the last couple chapters. Definitely need to know more of what made Colette the way she is (I think it has to do with their child), what Griffin’s father did to Colette’s father and for Griffin to grow a pair and just get out of there!!!

Jackson's Destiny (Sawyer Brothers #2) ~ C.A. Harms



Shaken to his core, the loss was excruciating…

Jackson Sawyer was strong, confident, cocky, and arrogant, but when he loved, he loved hard.

The Sawyer family was faced with a tragedy that rocked their foundation. Jackson, however, was hit the hardest. He’s the one who can't seem to rise above the grief.

It has overtaken him…

Until he finds Bailey Whitmore. She also has a darkness she just can't shake. Yet she hides it well—tucking her sadness away, and shadowing it with a spunky attitude. 

But those demons have a way of showing up when you least expect it…

Love is intense.

Loss is inevitable.

Pain and anger are unavoidable.

Will they find the strength to rebuild their tainted hearts together? 

Or will it go against…Jackson’s Destiny?

CA Harms does it again!!  I loved Jackson’s Destiny!
Jackson is the sexy, strong cowboy that a city girl like Bailey shouldn’t get involved with. I mean, he was a complete ladies man and almost did her against the barn one night. Granted, it would have been seriously hot and totally worth it, but everything happens for a reason.

Bailey is not looking for anything serious. After her best friend’s mother basically breaks up her parent marriage, oh and by the way, Bailey still hasn’t told said best friend, Jackson’s interest takes her by surprise. Well, not totally since they have been skirting around their attraction for some time, but Bailey did not anticipate how forward he would be.

After Jackson’s father passes away, he gets in a funk and the only thing that pulls him out is the need to take care of Bailey. Amber’s mother, Carla is in town and coupled with the funeral, which reminds her of her brother, it sets Bailey off. These circumstances bring Jackson and Bailey together, but you have to read to see if it is enough to keep them together.

RIP ~ Rachel Van Dyken

Amazon US / UK  

Pretty things aren't meant to be broken. 
But I broke her, and now we both have to pay the price.

I'm her nightmare. 

I'm her savior. 

And now that I have her signature on an ironclad contract, I own her body and soul. 

She doesn't remember me. 

She will. 

It's inevitable. 

Because as much as I know I need to stay away, for fear of unlocking the memories I helped her father bury--I can't. 

She was the apple in the Garden, dangled in front of me, her core so tempting and sweet. A voice whispered. Just. One. Bite. 

I bit. 

I tasted. 

I fell. 

Welcome to the world of the Russian mafia, where death, is your only future.

Mob Bosses, Murder, a Mentalist Doctor and the daughter of one of said Mob Bosses?? Sign me up!!
This was a good Romantic Thriller. Odd, I know when you think of a thriller, you don't necessarily think of romance, but Rachel Van Dyken pulled it off. 

The good ol' doctor, Nikolai, has too many secrets to keep and at first I was confused of who's side he was playing for. In the midst of learning about the sexy doctor, there is a serial killer on the loose and the killer is attacking prostitutes. You're not too sure if Nikolai is involved, but you get a sneaky suspicion he is. 

Maya is in awe of Nikolai. She studies his work and begs him for an interview for her thesis. What she doesn't realize, at first, is there is a deal between her father, The Russian Mob Boss, and Nikolai in the form of....Nikolai now owns you. Say what?? Exactly what I thought. Oh, but the plot thickens. 

In the midst of the serial killer, Nikolai owning Maya, and the questions of her father's involvement, Maya's memories and nightmares are coming back. She feels safe with Nikolai, but she isn't sure why. 

I don't want to give away too much, but the plot twists had me thrown for a loop and the edge of your seat action kept me sucked in. The sex was pretty hot too!! I mean how could it not be, sexy, ripped doctor and beautiful Mafia princess...Fireworks!!!
