4 3_4 Stars

I was twelve when a stranger at a train station taught me the meaning of ugly. He forced himself on me and threatened to kill my family if I told.

I stayed silent and the ugliness grew.

Now, that word rolls in film clips through my mind. All I’ve done since my best friend, Keyon Arias, left town is cement how ugly I am. Ugly on the inside—deep down to my core. On the outside… I am a Vixen. I flash men a smile and make them moan out pleasure I control.

Not them. Never them.

After five years of being away, my beautiful boy has come back to town for his father’s masquerade ball. He’s different. Hard muscle supersedes the skin and bone of his once boyish frame. One thing hasn’t changed though: the murderous look in his eyes when he slaughters his opponents. In the ring, I see the bullied boy, all grown up, dominating in ways he couldn’t in high school.

He’s the mayor’s son. The rising MMA fighter. The beautiful one.

I’m not the Paislee Cain of before, not the sweet girl he once knew, the one who chased away his bullies. I’m the town slut. The dirty girl whose shame will never fade no matter how many men I use. He’d disown what I’ve become.

Because beautiful can never love ugly.

Kristys Review (2)4 3_4 StarsSunniva Dee just does not write a book like anyone else.

It’s like she refuses to be bound by conventional rules, plot expectations, accepted character types and sometimes even by the constructs of the English language and that, my friend, is a phenomenally good thing.  Her books have a cadence all their own. A rhythm and a style that is completely and uniquely Sunniva.  To be honest, it always takes me a few chapters to settle into one of her books, but once I’m in her groove, I am so invested, so enthralled and so completely sucked in to her characters and the emotions she puts down on every page.  A Sunniva Dee book is a whirlwind of emotion, joy and tension, heartbreak and exhilaration, love, lust, despair and triumph.

This book is spectacular!!  The best book she’s written yet and she has a pretty impressive catalogue. 

I freaking ADORED this book. 

Paislee and Keyon are unlike anything I’ve read before. These characters are so complex, so unconventional and so completely refreshing and realistic.  I loved them both, my heart broke for them both, I rooted for them both to find their way to success and to happiness.  Never have two characters deserved it more.  Paislee, I can honestly say,  is unlike any other heroine I have ever read before and she is exactly that…a heroine. She’s a survivor and she completely owns her choices and her consequences, but she’s also a savior in her own rite and slaying her personal demons the only way she knows how.  Keyon is magnificent in every way you can image.  He is a selfless hero, fierce and destructive while nurturing and romantic. But he also has his own set of demons to slay and sometimes facing your demons is the hardest part.

The emotions this book pulled out of me are exactly the reasons I read.  My heart swelled with love and wonder, broke with pain and fear, raced with anticipation and trepidation, and stuttered  with passion and redemption.  I cried, I laughed, I cheered, I swooned and I could not have loved it more.

EXCERPT:

I’ve been on a one-track rail to landing Paislee in my bed since she got off the plane. Not that it’s been planned, but I convinced her that Pizza Pazza in Tampa is better than Mamma Lucia’s in Calceth. I told her about Simon during dinner, one thing led to another, and here I am unlocking the door to my duplex and letting her enter first.

She hasn’t commented on how we took my car from her hotel, how she’s basically dependent on me and my whims. But hey, I’m fucked too; it wasn’t my choice to have someone fill my head, and I didn’t ask that person to come to Florida.

We haven’t talked about tomorrow’s schedule, but I’m going to the rich dude’s house with her. He could be a total freak for all I know, so she’s not facing him alone.

“Oooh,” she whispers through a reverent puff of air like she’s never seen a cat before. Simon’s playing it up too, slinking around the corner with all the grace in the universe, stroking the doorjamb with a hip before he meanders over to us. “He’s soooo beautiful.”

“He’s just a regular old black street cat,” I say, but by the wink she shoots me, she doesn’t buy it. She read me back when too. “’Kay, fine: Simon’s awesome. Straight up the best pelt ever.”

“Pelt? You ass,” she giggles as she pets him from the top of his head and down the length of his body to his tail. Simon lifts it, happy. Any minute now, he’ll crank the volume on his purr-machine.

“Wow, he purrs loud.”

And there. For a cat, he’s being unexpectedly predictable.

“He loves the ladies,” I say, which makes her giggle more. I love to make her giggle. When she stands up again, I pull her in with one arm, fingers splayed across her spine. Firm breasts press against me, and I groan a little.

She puffs another laugh, all Simon’s fault. He’s gotten to the part of the agenda where he’s going to cramp my style. His purrs reach us from the floor, and he’s scissoring in and out between both of our legs.

“Never mind him. Look at me,” I whisper. Let my thumb and forefinger slide over her chin. The amusement recedes from her eyes when she sees that I mean business. I’m hardening. She yelps. Then she laughs out loud.

“Simon, quit it!” I say, exasperated, and bend to unhook his claws from the fabric over her knees. “I’m sorry. You see how it is now, right?
Simon’s the ass in this house. I should sell him to the highest bidder. Fifty cents flat will do. Come to think of it—I’ve got fifty cents in my pocket,” I say, kissing her down the corridor. “I could pay someone to take him. ‘Perfectly good cat with a year’s worth of free cat food.’”

Obviously, I’m digging my own grave here. There’s no hot lovemaking when your girl’s laughing so hard she’s about to pee herself.

Born in the Land of the Midnight Sun, the author spent her early twenties making the world her playground. Southern Europe: Spain, Italy, Greece–Argentina: Buenos Aires, in particular. The United States finally kept her interest, and after half a decade in Los Angeles, she now lounges in the beautiful city of Savannah.

Sometimes, Sunniva writes with a paranormal twist (Shattering Halos, Stargazer, and Cat Love). At other times, it’s contemporary (Pandora Wild Child, Leon’s Way, Adrenaline Crush, Walking Heartbreak, and Dodging Trains, coming in late March 2016).

4 3_4 Stars

Synopsis:
The New York Times bestselling hockey series featuring the Carolina Cold Fury continues as the team’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.

Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.

Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.

Kristys Review (2)4 3_4 Stars

Every once in a while you read a book that just feels perfect.  It’s exactly what you’re looking for at exactly the right time and it just ticks all your boxes and gives you that warm satisfied sense of peace.  I don’t know if I was jonesing for a GREAT sports book or a WONDERFUL romance or an AMAZING new book boyfriend…..but I definitely got all three.

I’ve read all of the Cold Fury books and I’ve enjoyed them all, but let’s be honest…we all have our favorites.  I have friends who love Alex and others who love Garrett and one or two that fell for Ryker.  But mine has always been Zack, then again I’m a sucker for a little heartbreak (OK a lot of heartbreak in that one).  This book however…this one really made me question my loyalty to poor Zack because Hawke is freaking amazing.  I simply adored him.  I loved how he handles things, I loved who he is as a man, I loved his sense of humor….I just LOVED him.  I have to admit, I was skeptical about them bringing in a brand new Cold Fury player, but I can acknowledge when I’m wrong.  I was SO wrong.

Vale is a pretty awesome character too.  She’s strong and determined and independent.  I completely understood and believed her struggle to be a grown up, to do the right thing and to navigate her way through a lot of confusing and upsetting thing that have been thrown her way.  There were times I wanted to grab her shoulders and shake her and times I wanted to cry for her and tell her it was going to be ok.

God, I just can’t get enough of good second chance romances and this is one of my favorites.  This book is just so heartfelt, at times both incredibly sad and remarkable uplifting.  I have never wanted to believe in true love and meant to be more.  Sawyer Bennett just got everything right in this one.

AP - Synopsis.jpg

 

Kyrie Kent hates baseball. She hates players even more. When her best friend drags her to a Ravens game, she spends the innings reading a book… Until she gets a glimpse of the closer—a pitcher who draws her like magnet. Fighting her attraction to Easton Holliday is easy. All she has to do is keep her distance, avoid the ballpark, and keep her head down. At least, all that would have worked, but Easton doesn’t intend to let Kyrie walk so easily. When another player vies for Kyrie’s attention, Easton will swing for the fences. But will Kyrie strike him out or let him steal home?

 

Full disclosure: This is an erotic romance full of hot guys in tight baseball pants, even more guys in tight baseball pants who know how to swing a big stick, and explicit sex.

 

AP- Excerpt.jpg

 

I squirmed, the tension already building between my thighs. After the game, I’d wanted to console him. But the moment he’d looked at me in the hallway—his frustration turning to something hotter—all semblance of thought had flown from my mind. And when he’d kissed me? Everything had stopped except his body pressed to mine, his tongue owning me.

But I needed to shut this down. I closed my eyes and took in a deep breath. Too much, too soon. I sat up. “Look, Easton, I didn’t come over here to—”

He leaned over, claiming my mouth with an insistent kiss and pushing me back into the cushions. I put my hands on his chest and tried to shove him away, but he grabbed my wrists and pinned them next to my ears.

His kiss lit me on fire and I couldn’t help but return it, caressing his tongue with mine as he slanted over me, tasting me. When he squeezed my wrists harder, I moaned into his mouth. He worked his knee between my thighs, the thin georgette material of my dress pushing up as he went. God, if he went much farther he’d know how wet I was.

I turned my head, breaking the kiss and taking a breath, but he wasn’t deterred. He fastened his lips to my neck, sucking and licking until goose bumps covered my arms and legs and I arched my back to him. When my pebbled nipples rubbed against his hard chest, I gasped.

He released my wrists and ran his hands down my shoulders, pushing my cardigan and the top of my dress down until my breasts were revealed. The cool air hit them, but soon after his mouth was hot and wet on one while he palmed the other. I dug my fingers into his hair and let my head fall back against the couch.

“Spread your legs.” His voice was sandpaper as he went back to sucking and biting my nipple, my need growing with each nip of his teeth.

I opened my legs and he pushed his knee up higher, until it was almost touching my pussy.

“Wider, Kyrie.” He bit my nipple for emphasis, making me moan and do as he’d said, spreading as wide as I could.

When his knee made contact with me, he hissed. “You’re so hot.”

I dug my nails into his scalp as he switched to my other nipple, giving it the same treatment as he moved his knee against my pussy, steady pressure up and down that had me moving my hips along with him.

Placing a kiss between my breasts, he pulled his knee away and sank to the floor in front of me. He ran his hands up my thighs under my dress and gripped my ass, yanking me forward until I was perched on the edge of the couch.

Looking up at me, his eyes were hooded and the corners of his mouth turned up in a faint smile. Moving his hand around my thigh, he stroked down the wet material of my panties and then back up to my clit. He used his thumb, rubbing my nub through the material and making me ache for more contact.

“You like that?” He asked, the devious smile still playing along his lips. “Tell me.”

“I-I like it.”

“How about this?” He pushed his finger around the fabric of my panties and touched my clit, stroking it in the same motion.

I jumped at the contact and bit my lip. “Yes.” It was a husky whisper.

He licked his lips and my thighs went up in flames.

“Do you want me to kiss you here?” He ran his thumb down and teased it at my entrance.

Say no, say no, say no. “Yes.”

“What if I fuck you here? Ram my cock as deep and hard as I can until you come on a scream. Would you like that?”

No, no, no. “Yes.” I made a keening sound as he plunged his thumb inside me.

“You’d say my name, wouldn’t you?” He pulled his thumb out and licked it clean as I watched.

My heart thumped in my chest and I couldn’t think, only stare as he closed his eyes and relished my taste.

“Say it.” His voice hardened, the edge piercing and ragged.

Heaven help me. “Yes.”

Pretty boy made me swoon, he was so cute (WHAT? Can’t I say cute???)
And preppy girl was trouble and fun from the start. What’s not to love?!?

All in all, you should read it. Oh and it’s a sport romance !!!

Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that.

Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend.

No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this

weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting

to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good…

But why can’t she stop fantasizing about him?

Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days,

and a panty-dropping smile.

Except—he isn’t.

As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole.

But she won’t touch him either.

Too bad their hormones missed the memo.

Synopsis:

You know me.

Come on, you know you do.

Maybe you pretend you don’t. Maybe you clear your browser history religiously. Maybe you pretend to be aghast whenever someone even mentions the word porn in your presence.

But the truth is that you do know me.

Everybody knows Logan O’Toole, world famous porn star.

Except then Devi Dare pops into my world, and pretty soon I’m doing things that aren’t like me—like texting her with flirty banter and creating an entire web porn series just so I can get to star in her bed. Again. And again.

With Devi, my entire universe shifts, and the more time I spend with her, the more I realize that Logan O’Toole isn’t the guy I thought he was.

So maybe I’m not the guy you thought I was either.

Wenn's Review

4 Stars!

Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect from this book when I sign up for it.

All I knew was that

a) I love both authors so it could only be explosive,

b) with a title and blurb like that you can only want to read it,

c) and when they release a cover like this it becomes your most expected book to read!

So to say that I was surprised by the tournure of the story is an understatement.
And this Logan O’Toole, sighs, he is one beautiful soul! And Devi, I wish I was as wise as her.

Both characters are masters in the introspection art. Well, sooner or later. The struggles they faced were genuine, I could understand the way they weighed the right and wrong, the real life and set life.

Kuddos to the authors for writing such a beautiful story with a topic so easily judged.
The sex scenes were perfect, steamy, and were respectful of the “actors/characters”.
I really loved how everything blended together and yet how Logan was able to draw a line between work and love. Until it all crumbled….

Above all, this book fed my addiction to porn, exhilarating feelings, heartbreaking declarations, hot make-up session, and love confession.

Synopsis

What’s harder than resisting one Dane man? Resisting two.

I don’t date bikers. It’s my one cardinal rule. No rough, rugged, tattooed egotistical maniacs on two wheels. Even if they are gorgeous, brilliant, and sport the prefix Doctor. Bottom line, bikers are nothing but trouble.

T.R.O.U.B.L.E

Dr. Devlin Dane has had his sights set on my panties for months. But I’ve done a stellar job of fending him off. As Mercy Medical’s most eligible bachelor, he has no problem in the panty dropping department. He’s tall, dark, and inked all over. I get the appeal, I’m not dead. I’m not stupid either. He’s a walking heartbreak waiting to happen.

But when Reese Dane comes crashing into my life – literally- the game suddenly changes.

Reese, the dark, brooding, motorcycle racing champion, knows exactly how to apply the right pressure on and off the track.

The two have an unstoppable pull like centrifugal force, and both bad boy bikers are determined to take me on a high-powered ride I’ll never forget…

Cover Reveal 🚄 DODGING TRAINS 🚄 by Sunniva Dee

Dodging Trains
Sunniva Dee
Publication date: March 29th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

I was twelve when a stranger at a train station taught me the meaning of ugly. He forced himself on me and threatened to kill my family if I told.

I stayed silent and the ugliness grew.

Now, that word rolls in film clips through my mind. All I’ve done since my best friend, Keyon Arias, left town is cement how ugly I am. Ugly on the inside—deep down to my core. On the outside… I am a Vixen. I flash men a smile and make them moan out pleasure I control.

Not them. Never them.

After five years of being away, my beautiful boy has come back to town for his father’s masquerade ball. He’s different. Hard muscle supersedes the skin and bone of his once boyish frame. One thing hasn’t changed though: the murderous look in his eyes when he slaughters his opponents. In the ring, I see the bullied boy, all grown up, dominating in ways he couldn’t in high school.

He’s the mayor’s son. The rising MMA fighter. The beautiful one.

I’m not the Paislee Cain of before, not the sweet girl he once knew, the one who chased away his bullies. I’m the town slut. The dirty girl whose shame will never fade no matter how many men I use. He’d disown what I’ve become.

Because beautiful can never love ugly.

Dodging Trains Full

EXCERPT:

PAISLEE

The most vibrant moments of my life flicker through my brain like film clips. If I concentrate long enough, they suck in sound until they become so real they mix in the scents from my memories too. Already, I realize today will morph into a clip that’ll join the rest of them—the short version of today, what I’m watching right now.

In this moment, he doesn’t star in a snippet at the back of my brain. He’s almost tangible, himself in ways I haven’t seen him in years.

Heat glistened off him when he strutted into the cage, arms high in preempted victory and with a cocky smile on his mouth. But now, minutes into the match, he’s not smiling anymore, no, because Keyon is fighting hard.

He always did that. Fought hard, I mean. And I wasn’t afraid for him back when I knew him either. Who can be afraid for someone who looks murderous?
I don’t mind his back toward the camera while he delivers the last decisive blow to his opponent; I enjoy the sight of skin and muscles under glaring spotlights and sweat that flies off hair and lashes when he turns.

The local TV station replays Keyon’s knockout in slow motion, while I consider what’s most real; replays like these on a TV screen versus what’s in my brain—those special clips from years ago. I let the thought go and ponder instead how Keyon and what’s-his-name survive the punishment they give each other.

I’ve kept close track of Keyon in the news. This is the first televised event he’s been a part of, so until now I’ve found him on the Internet and in our flimsy newspaper, the Rigita Gazette.

From the first glimpse of his face on TV, I saw the same impatience as before. Wildfire still burns in his eyes, and dedication radiates off him like red-hot quicksilver. In my imagination, Keyon is rattling the starting gates, dying to be freed into a world where he can rule, destroy, feast on his power without inhibitions.

She impressed me

She intrigued me

She captivated me

I’m consumed by her, but I can’t afford the risk of loving her. I repeat this

like a mantra in a valiant attempt to make myself believe the words.

And I did, until I almost lost her. Until I was forced to admit what she

Am I willing to gamble on love? Knowing how quickly the world can be

turned upside down, how everything you thought you had safely within

your grasp can suddenly get snatched away…

Tormented by my past, I know I run the risk of destroying my future.

Then the present forces me to fight for her – secrets, lies, threats and

betrayal, a potent mixture for heartbreak and hurt…

But whoever wants my girl needs to get through me first. I protect what’s

mine, and I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

Wenn's Review

4 Stars

Caught by Her is the second book in this series, about Lena and Nate.

Starting right after Lena’s accident, Nate has some difficulties to accept the feelings he has for Lena and let’s just say that he has his own way to deal with it.
Lena on the other hand doesn’t understand what has happened to change Nate’s behaviour so drastically…

Both characters here are full of surprises, and I must say that one of the things I LOVED the most in this book was the “real life” feeling I had all along. They are not sugar coated, don’t live in a mansion with unicorns, they do every day things together, talk like I would talk to my husband…

Their complicity was flagrant and so refreshing. Lena’s actions, even if you won’t agree with every thing she does, were funded and appropriate. I’m referring here to Nate’s brother. (view spoiler)

The only negative thing I could say is that I found the first part of the story, when Nate has to wake the fuck up and unstuck his head out of his ass, a wee bit too long.
The second part though, was unexpected and so good! Every thing happened so fast and seriously was REALLY well written, it felt like I was watching a movie. It was crystal clear!

I really enjoyed being immersed in Nate and Lena’s lives and I can not wait to read about Marcus!

Author Bio:

GL Chapple is a girl that always loved to read and write and promised

herself that, one day, she’d have a book bearing her name on her shelf.

Living in South Wales with her husband and two young children, she’s a

thirty something stay at home mother.

She spends a great deal of time at the beach, despite the welsh

weather! And loves hot and sunny days…which we never get enough

of…

She will read almost anything and really only become enamoured with

romance at the end of 2014, however, since then, she hasn’t looked

back.

Excerpt:

This time our kisses were soft and sweet, his hands cradled my face as

his lips gently brushed mine. Our tongues tangled together in a slow

dance as he began to make love to me as the music played in the

background.

This was completely different from our previous encounters.

This was love.

This was so incredibly intimate and sensual.

Tears glistened in my eyes, and I fought to stop them falling. The

emotional intensity was almost more than I could bear.

This wasn’t about making me come un-done; this was about sealing us

together, bonding us, sharing something incredible and powerful

together.

The words resonated deep within me as he kissed and caressed me. I’d

never felt so connected to someone; it was unlike anything I’d ever

experienced.

He maintained eye contact with me as he worshipped my body, his eyes

telling me more than his words ever could.

I thought I’d laid myself bare to Nate by telling him my secrets, but this

was so much more than that. I felt totally exposed to him and instead of

feeling anxious, I felt cherished and loved. My chest ached. My heart felt

like it had swollen to burst.

The sensations flooding my system were overwhelming me and I clung

to him, my fingertips digging into his back, my nails raking up and down

as I pulled him closer to me.

I could feel myself climbing towards my third orgasm, my mind scattered,

my emotions frayed and my body taut. I wanted to tell him I didn’t think I

could cope with anymore.

It was all too much.

My words were garbled, moans indecipherable, I closed my eyes for a

moment and heard him call my name through the fog of pleasure.

“Lena, look at me, Princess.” His voice was strained but demanding.

I opened my eyes as my body seemed to dissolve beneath me as a

wave of pleasure washed over me, the intensity forcing a strangled cry

from me. He slowed slightly as I rode out my orgasm.

My body felt boneless, my senses overloaded, before he increased his

tempo again, chasing his own release.

Within minutes my name became a long drawn out moan on his lips as

he reached his climax. He held his weight off me with his forearms but

dropped his head down onto my chest. I could feel his heart beating

against my own chest
