Synopsis/Blurb:

He was convinced he’d be a bachelor for life.  And then he met the girl of his dreams.

Jordan Reeves has fully embraced the carefree, uncomplicated bachelor life, figuring that the poor example he’d been provided by his parents of so-called marital bliss was reason enough to remain single.  He’s more than content to date one woman after another and never even consider settling down, especially since the only female who’s ever seriously caught his attention belongs to another man.

But during a vacation in Hawaii, Jordan unexpectedly meets a woman who could very easily change his mind about the joys of bachelorhood.  Aubrey Larson is young, gorgeous, fun-loving, and has a wicked sense of humor to match his own.  She’s also a dead ringer for the woman Jordan’s had an admitted crush on for the past few years, enough to be mistaken for her twin.

Aubrey recognizes the handsome Doctor Reeves as a player of epic proportions the first time they meet, but even her usual disdain for that type of male can’t diminish the overwhelming attraction she feels for him.  But as their relationship deepens, Aubrey has no idea that becoming involved with Jordan will lead to a startling discovery about her own past, and cause her to question his true feelings for her.

Reviews

This was a good, fun and light romantic story, it did contain a few twists but giving those away isn’t something that is gonna happen. I did get a little confused with the POV in this story seems to switch between dual to third person but I sort of got over that and began to enjoy the book.

This books isn’t all bells and whistles. There are no shocks to be fair. It’s just a really nice story that I would recommend to anyone that enjoys a good safe love story.

Reviewed by Donna

 

It’s always exciting to pick up a novel by a new author, will this be an exciting new discovery? Will I be disappointed? Will I enjoy the story and look forward to the next one? I love this journey and adventure.

Doctor Jordan Reeves is an obstetrician/ gynaecologist who has lived a carefree bachelor life, only smitten by one Tessa, who is out of bounds as she is a happily married woman with a family. One vacation in Hawaii he meets Aubrey Larson who could almost be Tessa’s double and there is definite chemistry.

Told in the third person, which to be honest is refreshing as it’s not that common nowadays, as well as from the two lead characters points of view however it does get a little confusing at times but seems to smooth out quickly enough. The story unfolds at quite a fast pace and it is very easy to read. A little predictable perhaps but a sweet romance with some passionate intimacy.

The lead characters are so much fun together, I particularly enjoyed the way Aubrey is her normal self around Jordan. The passion between them is lava hot too, so are the descriptions of their intimate scenes! 🌋 The sassy mouthed Aubrey fires off some great replies to Jordan and certainly knows how to hold her own, even though he is fourteen years her senior.

To answer my questions in my introduction yes I certainly do want to read more by this author, no I wasn’t disappointed and yes I look forward to reading about Finn and Max in their books!

Donna’s Review of A.C.H.E. by M. Never

by M.Never

 

 

Title: A.C.H.E.
Author: M. Never
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Ménage
Release Date: May 21, 2018

 

Blurb
A.C.H.E.
 
A is for Ache 
C is for Choice. 
H is for His. 
E is for Everly. 
 
I’ve always gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to my personal
life. Drug-addicted mother, obsessive stepfather, shitty upbringing, and one
soul-shattering, heart-wrenching relationship. 
 
But everything changed when I met Alec Prescott. I couldn’t stand the cocky,
hotshot lawyer at first, but after assisting him on one case, my opinion
changed drastically. He became the beginning I so desperately needed, even if
romantic relationships at work are completely forbidden. 
 
Unfortunately, falling in love with a coworker is the least of my problems.
Funny thing about the past, it’s never truly far away. No matter how fast you
run from it, or how hard you try to suppress it, it’s there, lingering like a
fog, blinding your vision, impacting your decisions, affecting your life. 
 
That’s where Tage Andrews comes in. He’s the heartache I can never outrun. The
man who saved me from my past while pillaging my emotions. I want to avoid
reliving it—avoid him—but he’s always there, lingering like a fog, blinding my
vision, impacting my decisions, affecting my life. 
 
 
This is my paradoxical predicament. 
Two men. 
One choice. 
Inevitable heartbreak.

Review
I really enjoyed this book but there was so much left unsaid. The book was loaded with so much action that I wish was more spread out and more detailed throughout. The book was a really easy going read until 60% and then the story seemed to explore and gain momentum.

The menage side of the book was ok but I truly didn’t think it was necessary and could have been left out with Tage being her friend and protector. But I did really like Alec and found his character really good. Although the insight into the characters was again very vague, leaving a lot of things hanging in the balance.

I hope this book isn’t the last and that we get to see what happens after as I have loads of things that need to be finished off. I do recommend this book but I feel that the reader would be left with question like I have been. Or maybe they will love it, for what it is.

Donna’s Review of One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn

by Meghan Quinn
Genres: Contemporary Romance

 

 

 

 

“What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?”

Forget.

I need to forget. I need an escape.

Only one person isn’t falling for my reputation as the NHL’s Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend’s house. She didn’t want to hear my reason–she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.

Adalyn is bold, sassy–and the perfect escape.

She’s everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.

And I do, making this summer the best off-season I’ve ever had.

But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don’t expect is to get her pregnant.

And what I definitely don’t expect is having to fight for her affection.

 

 

 

 

REVIEW

What a great book, I absolutely love this book and series.  It was a quirky concept and a brilliant storyline that has me gripped to see the outcome for all involved in the first book. This book concentrated on Hayden and how he finds his happy.

I really didn’t see this book evolving exactly how it did. I got more than a little teary on more than one occasion and fell head over hills in love with Hayden. Adelyn was a fantastic character and completely perfect for Hayden. Although at points through this book I wanted to shake her.

This wasn’t an easy romance but what they say is nothing good ever comes easy. This book had everything you ever wanted in a romance book and I can say I enjoyed every single word. This book is a huge recommend from me. A must read series.

EXCERPT

“Would you mind zipping up the back of my dress?” She walks toward me, her flowery scent floating in my direction, spiking my yearning into overdrive.

“Uh, yeah . . . sure.”

She turns around and looks over her shoulder. The back of her dress is completely open, the zipper was undone to just above the curve of her beautifully round ass.

Shit, all that smooth, tan skin, covered by nothing but the velvety fabric of the dress. Is she wearing underwear? She’s not wearing a bra and I see no panty line.

Clearing my throat, I ask, “Are you wearing underwear, Adalyn?”

From over her shoulder, she smiles shyly. “Yes, it’s small though.”

Of course, it is. Why wouldn’t it be?

Not being able to stop myself, I take a second to float my fingertips up her spine. From the initial touch, her back arches and a small gasp releases from her lips, but before I can think about stopping, she melts into my touch. Stepping closer, I place my hand on the back of her hip, my thumb pressing into her ass while the other hand explores the bare expanse of her back. Her head falls to my shoulder. Her lips part, and when I snake to the front of her dress, her breath hitches.

Eyes closed, I take in ragged breaths, my fingers inching closer and closer to her front, my cock painfully hard.

It’s been so goddamn long—and being with Adalyn has only spurred on my need—but I want to make sure we’re in a good place before we commit to anything. I want to make sure she’s ready emotionally because the minute I bury myself deep inside her, I know there will be no turning back. She will be mine forever.

But maybe, for now, I can just have a little touch . . .

My cock pressed against her butt, she expertly grinds her backside into me, her hands moving to my neck, pulling my head down to hers. I kiss the side of her neck, using the hand that’s gripping her hips to guide her with her grinding in just the right place.

Fuck, that feels good.

I grunt, the sound vibrating over her sleek neck. My hand on her stomach, she arches wanting more of my touch, silently asking me to move north.

And I fucking comply. Inch by slow inch, I guide my hand to just below her breasts. When I halt my pursuit, a displeased groan escapes her.

“Hayden, please.”

I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to find the willpower. Her fingernails dig into my scalp, spurring me on as she turns her head and finds my lips.

She kisses me.

Hot.

Wet.

Needy.

Her lips gliding across mine, her tongue diving into my mouth, her moans are vocal and sexy. Her delicious ass, pressing, grinding, undulating against my rock-hard cock makes me want to do so much more, makes me want to taste so much more.

Moving my hand higher, my fingertips graze the bottom of her breast. Soft. Round. Smooth. I caress her right below her nipple, never touching, just teasing . . . tempting.

 

 

 

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Genre: Contemporary/Rocker Romance

Some call him a rock god.
Others a celebrity bad boy.
Me? I call him the arrogant bastard who stole my concert venue.
His apology? To take me and my violin on tour with the band.
It’s an offer I can’t refuse, even if it does come with strings attached.
Because Rey Thomas isn’t who he seems.
Life isn’t pretty behind the deviant frontman’s facade.
It’s raw, ugly, and at times downright painful.
But it’s real.
And far better than the lie he presents to the world.
The man behind the face of Dark Tide is beautiful in his chaos.
All I have to do is keep him alive long enough to see that too.
Nobody ever said loving a rock star would be easy.

Reviews

I really don’t know where to begin with this review. I don’t know how to express the feeling that it provoked and just how to put it all down on paper. But I need for people to realise what a fantastic thought-provoking book this is. Some say we all have our demons and we do but some of us have a disease that we can never escape from. One that plays with us in the worst ways, these diseases are ones that have more access to us than any other. Especially when it’s your own mind that you can’t escape from.

This is one of the hardest books I have read, an example that with the world at your feet, you still feel like you are nothing, mental illness has no preference, it sees no creed, colour or status. Rey is perfect example that no one is untouchable. Rey and Tabitha’s story is just beautiful, even with all the demons that run through these pages and try to ruin it.

This is a rock star book with a difference and I think Max Henry handle every word and situation with kindness, compassion and incredible knowledge. I don’t want to spoil this book at all and explain what happens as it needs to experience first hand. But the saying is true. If you love someone enough let them go, if they come back they are yours forever and that is what else I will take from this book.

This book is a huge recommendation from me but it’s not for the faint of heart or mind. This book covers some serious and painful things so be warned. Max Henry you have done yourself and those of us that suffer proudly. And maybe more than a few rock star who couldn’t face another day too.

Reviewed by Donna

Seriously Max Henry! Seriously!!!!
I haven’t had the chance to read any adult fiction books in some time, being swamped down with boring university books or children’s fiction so to say this book blew my mind and gave my love of reading back would have to be the BIGGEST understatement EVER!!!It gave me all the feels and took me on an adventure of the heart and mind and really had me engrossed in their story. The depth of character is amazing and the storyline is exceptional.

A MUST READ for 2018!!!

Reviewed by Cherie

It’s always a delight starting a new book by this author, although we are warned about some triggers- and yes they are there- the whole subject of mental illness is handled brilliantly.

Dark Tide is an up and coming band made up of Rey, the lead singer, Toby on drums, Emery the bassist and Kris who is a sensational guitar player. After a mix up they meet the sassy and determined violinist, Tabitha. Things start to become very interesting and moving.

There is a darkness in this story, how could there not be with mental illness? A darkness that is showcased very smoothly as well as harshly, a clever move by Max Henry. A darkness that is necessary for readers to understand not only the main character better and try to get a handle on what his life is like but also how it affects those around him. It clearly gave a depth of understanding that I have never experienced before, thank you.

Down Beat isn’t all dark as there are lighter times, I enjoyed the banter between the characters, especially with Tabitha being smart-mouthed towards Rey and vice versa.

I am so excited to know that Kris’ story will be next in the series, he is such an intriguing character and I can’t wait to get to know him better.

Who doesn’t love a good rock star book! Well, this is a great rock star book and then some!! I was so blown away with the content and how Max dealt with a delicate and taboo subject in such a respectful way… she went no holes bared and showed mental illness in all it’s ugly glory! This story was a dark and beautiful love story about a man with demons and the lady who accepted him for who he was demons and all. Max has a real talent for thought-provoking stories… and this one was no different, you come away with a whole new level of understanding about how precious life really is!! Look out for your family and friends, ask questions and just be there xx

Excerpt
“You
started without us.” The dark-haired cocky bastard from before makes a show of
moving my road case so he can sit in the seat adjacent to mine.
The quiet
guy who offered to help me carry it heads for the counter, and is immediately assailed
by some desperate woman with a napkin.
“You’re
really something, huh?” I muse as I lift my coffee to take a sip.
“I like to
think so.” His gaze bores into mine despite the fact the horn bag with the
napkin is lining him up in her sights. “What kind of music do you play?”
“What do
you care?”
We enter
what appears to be a staring contest while he formulates his answer; piercing
eyes fix firmly on me as I hold my coffee to my chest. His black hair is spiked
haphazardly, yet a few loose tendrils across his face give him the mysterious
edge that I imagine his groupies love. The T-shirt he wears is torn,
fashionably so, and just enough that I can get a glimpse as the ink he hides
below.
I sip my
coffee with a smirk.
He leans
forward, the studded cuff on his left wrist making a soft clink as it hits the
timber surface.
“Ohmygod,”
the horn bag breathes in one rushed syllable as she arrives at my table. “I
can’t believe you’re in here.”
The cocky
asshole drags his gaze from me and smiles at her, laying on the charm. “Good
place to get a coffee, right?”
“The best,”
she gushes, oblivious to the intense standoff she interrupted.
I sit back
and sip my latte, sizing up the woman. She seems to be in her late twenties,
early thirties at most. What surprises me is that she’s dressed like a soccer
mom. Not exactly what I’d expect a fan of a man kitted out in denim, leather,
and enough chains to rival a prison warden to look like.
“Can you
sign this?”
“Kris leave
me any room?” He takes the napkin from her, brushing his fingers over hers.
The woman
damn near comes on the spot. Slick move,
asshole.
“I think
there’s a space up here.” And in one swift move, Soccer Mom transforms to
Desperate Housewife with the tilt of her hips. The blouse that mere seconds ago
demurely hid her assets now hangs like a slack sail in the Dead Sea, giving the
cocky asshole to my left the perfect view of her ample tits.
Shoot me if
I ever turn into one of those.
“Thanks.”
He takes the pen she offers and then scratches a quick message for her like he
probably has a million times before.
She leaves
with her smile a little wider, and her panties more than likely a darn sight
wetter.
“Excuse
me.” I pull my phone out, amused to find him frowning at me in my periphery.
“What are
you doing?” He leans closer to see my screen, wafting what has to be pure
pheromones under my nostrils. How the
fuck do they make men’s cologne so addictive?
“I’m
googling your name, since you won’t introduce yourself properly.”
He laughs,
the rich sound traveling throughout the shop as his bandmate, Kris, returns
with a table number.
“Shouldn’t
you have like a private coffee shop, or something?” I sass. “Don’t celebrities
like you get places shut down so they can drink in peace?” The result comes up
on my screen, along with an assortment of very hot performance shots. Damn, this man can rock studs.
“She’s
kidding right?” Kris mumbles to the cocky asshole.
“I don’t
think so.” He smiles at me, leaning back casually in his seat. “I can’t believe
you don’t know my name.” The jerk spreads his legs wide, a denim-clad knee
perilously close to my thigh.
“Do you
know every stranger you meet’s name?” I lift an eyebrow at him. “Rey?
“Babe, I’m
not a stranger.” Fucker still smiles. “I haven’t had to introduce myself for
the past four and half years.”
“Since we
first made Billboard,” Kris adds quietly.
I like him.
He’s not in-your-face like this jackass to my left. He’s quiet, humble even. He actually makes me want to hold a
conversation with him.
Rey, on the
other hand…. “You’re a little full of yourself, aren’t you?”
Kris smiles
behind his linked hands, elbows on the table.
“Would you prefer to be full of me?” Rey
wiggles a pierced eyebrow.
“You have
to be shitting me,” I mumble, looking away.
“You never
answered my question, Tabitha,” Rey
taunts. “Or can I call you Tabby, since you’re like a wild cat, all claws and
snarl?”
I almost
smile at his comment… almost.
“Tabitha.”
I look back at the guy, pissed at myself for recognizing that he is in fact
pretty damn good-looking. Bastard. “And
I play classical. A little bit of crossover.”
“Classical.”
Rey looks like he’s fit to burst. “People still listen to that?”
“They do.”
I give him a hard stare, and then shift focus to Kris. “In all honesty, I am
surprised you two don’t have security or some kind of protection if you’re that
shit hot.”
He lifts an
inked finger and points to a burly guy outside the shop. If I didn’t know
better, I’d think the man was Joe Public. He’s big, sure, but he’s dressed in
sweats and a T-shirt. No earpiece, no Secret Service-style shades. He just
looks… normal.
“I think
his name’s Pete,” Kris mumbles. “He turned up late. Hence why you got in.”
“You think his name is Pete?” I snort a
laugh.
“He’s not
our normal crew,” Rey fills in. “Hired while we’re in town.”
“Oh.”
Frustrated by how quickly the conversation has turned comfortable, I redirect
back to the issue at hand. “Can I ask why you’re at my table?”
“We need
coffee.” Rey shrugs.
“At my table, though?”
“Figured we
got off on the wrong foot.” He wrinkles his nose. It’s cute. No it’s not. Focus, Tab.
“Can’t
blame me for that.” I take a nonchalant sip of my coffee… and promptly choke on
a bubble of foam that gets stuck on the roof of my mouth near my throat. Slick.
“Can’t
blame us, either,” Rey retorts.
It’s okay, asshole. I don’t need a pat on the
back or anything. Just unable to breathe for a beat there, but you just take it
easy, okay?
“Rick
organized the whole thing,” he finishes, unfazed by the tears teetering on the
rims of my eyes.
“You okay?”
“Yeah,
Kris. I am now. Thanks.” I wipe the moisture away before I end up looking
bat-shit crazy with mascara down my face.
“Where you
from?”
“Pardon?” I
glare at Rey.
“Your
accent. You’re not American.”
I give the
muppet a slow clap.
His
nostrils flare when a few customers look across at our table. “Are you
Austral—”
I lift a
palm to stop him. “Don’t say it.”
“What?”
“Don’t you
dare assume I’m Australian. There’s more than one country down there, you
know.”
He stares
at me, blank. Fuck my life.
“Kris, help
him out here.” I down the last of my coffee.
“New
Zealand,” he murmurs to Rey.
“Oh.” His
face stays blank as a clean slate.
“You’ve
heard of it, right?” I ask.
“Of course
I have,” he scoffs.
“But you
didn’t know where it was.”
He smiles,
and damn it all if that doesn’t make me do so too. Stay strong. I can’t fawn over this guy like every other female on
the planet, not when my objective is to make his life hell. Not that I know how I’m going to do that
just yet.
“Geography
was never my thing,” he explains as Kendall brings their drinks over.
She sets
Rey’s down first, and then throws me a sneaky look behind his back before
setting Kris’s before him.
“Later,” I mouth while both boys are distracted adding
sugar.
She gives
me her don’t test me eye, and then
leaves.
“Well,” I
announce, pushing my empty cup to the middle of the table. “This has been
swell, guys, but I really must press on.”
I get
halfway to my feet before a strong hand to my thigh shunts me back in the
chair. Holy hell, that was intense.

 

“Sit.” Rey
stirs his coffee, eyes on the amber swirl. “I’m not finished with you yet.”

Donna’s Review of Tequila Haze by Melissa Toppen

by Melissa Toppen
IT’S LIVE!
 
It was destiny– the night I met Hudson Demasi.
I remember how effortlessly he stole my heart- his dark eyes and quick smile forever etched into my mind. We spent one incredible night together under a haze of tequila- a perfect night. And when I woke the next day, he was gone…
I never expected to see him again. Years passed and with it, life went on. Until one day there he is- standing in front of me like no time has passed at all.
He’s determined to remedy his mistakes. I’m determined to let him try. Because even though I know I should walk away- the urge to feel the burn is just too strong.

 

 
Tequila Haze is the first book in the Tequila Duet.
 
 

AVAILABLE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED!




I absolutely adored this duet and the second part was great and I got loads of feels from it. I just couldn’t believe how the first part of Tequila Burn played out.  I really can’t say what happens but it would have gone so different, time-wise to sort things out in my world.

Lennon came across as very timid in this book and I really didn’t get that from her character in Tequila Haze and I was puzzled, to say the least. I really loved Hudson and although I wanted to slap him on occasion you just couldn’t help but feel for him in this book. He was on a road that anyone would find hard to deal with.

The supporting characters were brilliant again and I think their added input made this story fuller and stronger. I cried heaps reading the last 20% of this book as I watch the sunrise over London, with a nice cuppa. What a great moment to experience and what a great conclusion to this duet.

These books are a huge recommend from me. I love me a rockstar and a country star just became a huge contender.

Bane-Cover-Facebook

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

Review

Where do I begin with the review, its taken me a few days to mull it all over in my head? I needed to get things straight to not be swayed or influenced by others. To stick to my feelings and not get swept up in the hype. I enjoyed this book don’t get me wrong, but I was expecting so much more. I may have been spoilt in the past by LJ Shen and her ability to sweep me off my feet and blow me away.

Right now to start to explain. I really can’t be fair. I loved Bane, his character and what he was to Jesse. I get that he had the swagger, he was indeed a loveable rogue and although he protected Jesse like a man possessed which I find so beautiful, he just didn’t make me get the feels. And So like Bane I refuse to apologise.

The strongest and most upstanding character in this book is indeed Jesse. She was a warrior and God did she have so much to deal with. She is the kind of character that makes you look at things with different eyes and for me, she made this book. Now them together was perfect in a lot of ways. How he helped her to fix herself by handing her exactly what she needed. As the book went on Jesse opened up and the banter and relationship grew from there.

I do recommend this book, it provoked a ton of different emotions. I laughed and I got teary. So, all in all, it was a great read but for me. I just wanted more.

Our 5 Stars Reviews of King’s Wrath by Nina Levine

by Nina Levine
Genres: MC Romance

The wait is finally over! The highly anticipated King’s Wrath by Nina Levine is now available on all ebook retailers.

Finally meet the enigma that is King.

Our love wasn’t like everyone else’s.
There wasn’t a first date or flowers and gifts.
We didn’t have a song or cute nicknames for each other.
There were no calls during the day to check in with me, no coming home to cook me dinner, and no foot massages at the end of a long day.
That wasn’t how he loved.
But love me he did.
Madly, deeply, passionately, completely.
King loved with everything he had.
He just loved a little differently to most.

This is King’s story. From the beginning. All the ugly and all the beautiful, by the end of this duet you will come to understand the man behind the club.

King’s story will be told over two books – King’s Wrath & King’s Reign.

REVIEWS

Ah King! Such a complex character and one I have eagerly waited to get to know better. Being back with the Sydney Storm boys is a treat, one definitely worth waiting for from this author, who only produces quality work.

Zachary Brown was born into a hard life and lived a hard life until he was taken under the wing of his foster parents Margreet and Dale King, who later adopted him. I’d like to say that things were rosy and peachy for King from then on however that’s not real life and it certainly wasn’t for him. Ivy, another foster child in the system, and he became extremely close. A deep love developed but the relationship was also very volatile.

This story starts when King is nine then jumps years to pertinent times in his life in part one. Part two is based on present day which helps to keep things organised and clear in reader’s minds. I have to admit that I felt very protective towards King, the big bad biker? Yes, definitely! I wanted to wrap him up in cotton wool and ease the tension and stresses of his life.

Enter Lily, a smart-mouthed, strong woman who has a heart of gold. Her mother is a little on the eccentric side but fun to read about and her sister is a sister every woman would like to have for real. (Her situation, set up by their mum, is a hoot too!) Lily’s ex, Linc, …now he is a totally different story and I could cheerfully clobber him over the head! 😳

Plenty of action, drama and passion to light up a movie screen…actually the series would make a great transition onto film! A few twists to stir things up and make it interesting adds to this cocktail of goodness. I totally recommend you start at the beginning, if you haven’t, then feast on the whole series knowing this is waiting for you to gobble up!

Wow what an intense read.. King is in the middle of a crisis, his club, his family and an ex makes for one complicated story of love, hate and vengeance! We finally learn of Kings past, his childhood… what makes him into the strong, loyal, crazy MC president he is today. This book was everything I was hoping for and so much more… it was a powerful story with an amazing message I cannot wait for its fabulous conclusion!!

Reviewed by Nat

The King has arrived and OMG was he worth the delays and waiting. I knew he would overpower the rest of The Storm men but didn’t quite see it to the extent that it was. King is all consuming and I was hooked from the first word.

This book is a two-part book, really divided by time. You get a small glimpse of what created the beast, as well as what fuels it. The story has more to come and I think that is when the true wrath of King will be shown. He has loved and lost so many times throughout his life, he isn’t willing to lose ever again and at the end of the book, you see him walk away again not through hate but through love and protection.

I really loved all the characters in this book and I loved just how strong the women are. King needs a strong woman and all that has been and that is in his life, have balls and are no-nonsense, smart-mouthed, sassy, bold women, that can take care of what’s theirs. Ivy and Jen fitted that bill for some time.  But I think Lily is the one to finally tame our beast. If only he would just calm his storm and open his heart.

This book is fantastic and a huge recommend from me. Bring on the final. I can’t wait.

Book One in the new Sydney Storm MC series.

A biker torn between loyalty to his club and love for his woman.

I let Evie Bishop go once. I won’t make that mistake again.

I’ve loved Evie since we were kids, before I found the Storm MC.
Long before I sold my soul to the devil.
I never wanted to bring her into this world, but a man can only go so long without the woman he loves by his side. I need her like I fucking need air and I won’t stop until she’s mine again.
I knew she’d battle me.
I knew I’d have to fight hard for her.
But I never thought I’d be in this predicament—torn between her and my club.
The thing about me, though, is that I’ll do anything for those I love. Even if it could cost me everything.

BLURB

I would have been stupid to turn the opportunity down.

A feature film starring the hottest man in Hollywood—and me.

It wasn’t just the chance of a lifetime; it was the first time I’d landed the leading role.

But Tanner James isn’t just any actor, aka “Sex God”.

He’s the man who took my virginity then shattered my dreams.

If I can use this part to launch a new career, it will be worth it.

If I can stop myself from falling back into bed with Tanner, it will be a miracle.

And my heart?

There’s no way he’s taking that from me.

He’s always been the one who owned it.

 

 

 

REVIEW

Jenna & Tanner or “Janner” as the media dubbed them all those years ago when they were young and in love!! 10 years later after an alleged affair & a nasty break up and they are together again starring as lead roles in a feature film… the chemistry between the two is unmissable to everyone but themselves and as the movie goes on their mutual attraction to each other gets harder and harder for them to ignore but the scars of the past are too are they too deep for them to ignore. A beautiful second chance love story that will make you swoon, a must read.

EXCERPT

“Today meant nothing,” I say. “Our past is in the past.”

“Totally in the past. But when I’m working with you…”

I feel myself inch closer to him. “… what?”

“Sometimes I can’t tell where we leave off and our characters begin.” Is he sitting nearer than he was a few seconds ago?

“I know. I feel the same way,” I confess, and then I’m definitely moving closer to him. Definitely staring at his lips. We’re like two magnets. Simply telling them to stay apart never stops the pull.

“But that’s the job, right?” he says, and his eyes are on my mouth now.

I nod. “We have to put everything aside and just focus on the work.”

“Right. Yes. I can do that.” He’s so close we’re almost touching. Then he reaches his hand out and places it on my thigh. I feel a chill run up my body, and I close my eyes. The warm, heavy feeling of his hand is so familiar and so exciting at once. “Can you do that?”

The honest answer is that I don’t know. I open my eyes and find him staring at me. I get lost in his stare. For a moment, we hesitate.

Then the next thing I know, my lips are pressed against his and his tongue is finding its way inside my mouth. I don’t know who started it, but neither of us can deny this is what we both want in this moment. Have wanted since this afternoon. Maybe since we first saw each other outside craft services two weeks ago.

He cradles my face between his hands and shifts me closer, as though afraid I’ll break our connection.

But I’m not going anywhere. I want more. I swing my leg over to straddle him, so I can press my hips into his pelvis. I groan when I feel how hard he is, groan with the need that’s already built up unbearably between my thighs. I rock back and forth, desperate. Only a few scraps of cloth stand between us, but they’re enough to frustrate me.

He stands up, me still astride him, then he tosses me onto my back in front of him. He kneels on the ground, and I’m lying on the couch of my trailer looking up at the ceiling, and a part of me is wondering how the hell this happened again. But a much louder part of me doesn’t want it to end before we’re both naked and screaming out all our unresolved anger in orgasm.

Before I have time to register what’s happening, I feel Tanner’s fingers creep up my thighs and under my panties. He plays with me, teasing before he plunges two fingers inside my body.

I gasp in surprise and delight.

This. This is what I need.

I let my thighs fall farther apart, giving him all the access he wants. Tanner dances and swirls his fingers around, first deep inside me and then up to brush my clit. I grip the couch, nearly paralyzed in anticipation. My legs begin to shake, and I can’t remember my own name anymore. All I can think about is how incredible this feels, and how, improbably, he’s become even more talented at touching a woman over the years. Holy shit.

I’ve never been fingered like this before.

He leaves one hand to work every centimeter of my clit then takes the other and dances it up and down the inside of my thighs until I’m crying out. His free hand covers my mouth, but that doesn’t help. It isn’t until he stills that I quiet, although my hips are still rocking greedily, trying to get what I want from his fingers.

“Sshh,” he says, “Someone might still be around.”

“I don’t care,” I moan, and, in the moment, I swear I don’t. Let everyone hear how glorious this is. Tanner grins as he presses his fingers back inside me, bending them and twisting them, showing off more moves that get my body pulsing and my pussy soaking wet.

I’m going to come. I’m so close. “Fuck, Tanner, yes…”

“Yes,” he growls, and that’s all it takes to send me flying over the edge into ecstasy.

… just as someone knocks on the trailer door.

Donna’s Review of Back in the Game by Meghan Quinn

by Meghan Quinn

 

 

 

Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession.

But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men’s bathroom. Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number.

Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. But Rachel isn’t the only girl in Calder’s life which scares him, because Calder’s daughter already lost her mother. He doesn’t want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel’s task of breaking through Calder’s wall that much more difficult.

 

 

 

REVIEW

I first came across this story in the Team Player anthology and I thoroughly enjoyed this thoroughly cute and humour filled novella and for such a short story it packed plenty of passion and an instant chemistry that fuels the romance.

I just love a single dad story, especially when the little one is their whole world. It makes for a completely swoon-worthy read. A Meghan Quinn book wouldn’t be the same without the witty banter and laugh out loud moments. All in all a fantastic read.

Reviewed by Donna

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
