Boy Toy Auction by CA Harms

What was meant to be a fun evening to benefit charity, suddenly became so much more…

They were both volunteered into attending the Boy Toy Auction.
One as a contestant. 
One as an attendee.

Emerson lost an internal battle the moment Nicholas stepped onto the stage. 

As soon as he started moving his hips to the rhythm of the music, she was captivated. Suddenly, the timid girl became a warrior as she fought to have the highest bid. 

There was no way she was leaving without him at her side. 

From the moment Nic saw her, Emerson became his focal point. 
The beautiful woman in the silver dress. 
The one that held his stare.
He needed her to win.
He needed her.

He’d make sure this was the best money she’d ever spend.
Or the worst…depends on how you look at it.

Because sometimes, it doesn’t matter what you want, life has a way of throwing you a curve ball that you aren’t prepared for…

Boy Toy Auction is super fun, sweet and unexpected, for both Emerson and Nic. It was supposed to be a night of entertainment and possible bragging rights. What these two didn't expect was the magic that was created that night. 

Both Nic and Emerson are enamored with each other from first sight. They can't look away. And there is no way anyone was going to win Nic that night besides Emerson. She is almost as shocked as her friend is that she actually bid on a guy....and WON!

Insta-spark and chemistry. Insta-infatuation and sexual tension. These two totally burn up the pages until Emerson's controlling father gets in the way. This man is vicious. He's controlling and manipulative. He is disgusting. Luckily Nic isn't afraid of him, but unfortunately, Emerson is. 

A series of events leaves Emerson homeless and jobless. She and Nic are on the outs and it all has to do with  her father. Gah! I despise this man. All bad things seem to circle back to him. But Nic is not going to give up. He's not giving up on Emerson or their love. The question was always if Emerson could handle that. If she was done with her father's controlling ways. You'll have to read to find out. 

I love CA Harms' writing. She is a one-click author for me and I always enjoy her characters. They are relate-able and real. There's just enough angst and drama to keep you on the edge of your seat, but not too much where its unbelievable. Just fantastic!

Booted (Trails of Sin Book 3)

The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.

We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.
Violent relief in a warm body.

Beneath her touch, I’m alive.
Against her skin, I’m redeemed.
Buried inside her, I forget the past.
Until the past takes her from me.

Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving.
I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.
I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.

TRAILS OF SIN series (HEAs with no cliffhangers - must be read in order):
Knotted #1 - Jake and Conor
Buckled #2 - Jarret and Maybe
Booted #3 - Lorne and Raina

 I'm a huge fan of Pam Godwin's. Her dark romances grip me from the first page and don't let go. There's love, lust, angst, chaos and calm, all rolled in to one amazing package. Booted is the conclusion to the Trails of Sin books I needed. 

There are so many questions at the end of Buckled that I needed answered. Not of Jarret and Maybe, but of Raina and Lorne. I had only seen Lorne from the outside in the other books, but now we get to see and feel what Lorne went through. 

Raina's life is no walk in the park either. And we get some clarity of why she was there in the first place. I get it. I'm not going to say I liked it, but it was a necessary evil. The hand she was dealt coupled with the "relationship" she had with John Holsten.... just wow. This is one strong, kick@$% woman!

Booted is well written with several twists, but the twists are the explanations we have been waiting for. All the puzzle pieces start to fit together and conclude in one mass chaos event that left me gasping for air! Their love was not normal or conventional, but it worked.

"I hear you."

Just fantastic!

"He smashed my heart against my ribs to make room for his. Now we beat side by side, stretching and growing together in the shared space."
