Wild Boys After Dark Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASES........
Everything’s naughtier after dark… Fall in love with the Wild & Bad boys. Long enough to burn up the sheets and short enough to leave you craving more.

If raw emotions, cursing, dirty-talk, or intense, passionate sex that sometimes includes a silk tie, turn you off, then the After Dark books are not for you. *NO CLIFFHANGERS*

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**



Wild Boys After Dark, Logan (Book #1)

Stella “Stormy” Knight is an expert at hiding—her feelings, her past, and her identity. Sometimes all that hiding takes its toll, and she needs to come out from under that heavy suit of armor and cut loose—but it never takes her long to put it right back on and disappear without a trace. 

Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand. 

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.

My thoughts:

Logan is an ex-Navy Seal and a private investigator, with strong ties to his family. He believes in protecting those in trouble and getting to the bottom of a problem rather than running from it.

Stella has been running for her life, having left her family, friends and her whole life behind in order to protect those that she loves. A run-in in a bar sparks the chemistry between them, but Stella can't allow herself to consider a relationship with anyone, let alone a man who will push until he finds the real her.

I always love Melissa Foster's books, and the After Dark series is hot hot hot! Her books are always amazing, romantic, and sexy. But this series is so hot it blows the rest of her books out of the water! 

If you haven't read Melissa Foster's books before, try this one! It's a quick, super sexy read that you'll love!

Wild Boys After Dark, Heath (Book #2)
No last names. No strings. No ties.
Except of the silk variety. 

Dr. Heath Wild and Allyson Jenner only wanted a simple tryst. But Heath couldn’t live with just one night, just one taste, of Ally—and Ally couldn’t escape the memory of his hands on her skin, the way he looked at her like she was his obsession, or his seduction, which had pushed her to the edge and had made her want to do things she never had before.

One night leads to one tantalizing phone call. Can one phone call lead to forever?

Wild Boys After Dark, Cooper (Book #4)
Releasing 1st December, available to pre-order 

Four years ago at a film festival, Cici Fine met Cooper Wild, a man who turned her world upside down in the span of one deliciously perfect week. He was everything she’d ever dreamed of: sinfully sexy, intelligent, and incredibly loving. When the festival ended, they returned to their own hometowns with promises of forever. But Cooper disappeared, and Cici was left to raise the daughter he never knew about alone.

Cooper is finally thinking straight after years of being lost in grief from the tragedy that killed his father and left his mother blind. Now he’s on a mission to find the woman he left behind—the only woman he’s ever loved. 

But Cici Fine is no longer a naive young girl. She’s a savvy businesswoman with big responsibilities, on the cusp of a life-changing move. When fate brings the two together, they’ll put the old adage to the test and find out if love really can conquer all.

The Haunted Heart of Rory O'Dannon


NEW RELEASE.....
Is the love of Megara's life a hallucination -- or a ghost?

While delirious with fever, Megara had a visit and fell in love with the Irish poet Rory O'Dannon, but never saw him again. Years later, convinced that he had been a hallucination, she enters a pragmatic marriage to Senator Ken Benedict.

Until a car accident catapults her back to 19th century Ireland--and into Rory's arms.

Despite a challenging new life, Megara helps Rory find his poetry and pledges her heart to him, the night before he is to be hanged for treason...and then she wakes from the coma. Forced by sound evidence, she realizes that Rory was fictional, but discovers the wedding band he gave her and a message that time is running out!

Now Megara must choose between the easy life with her husband, or risk death and a chance for love with Rory.

My thoughts:

Have you ever had a dream so vivid that it changed your life? Meg is a fabulous dancer until she is in a tragic car accident that cripples her and destroys her possibility of a dancing career. When she returns home she meets an amazing Irishman in the middle of the night, and their interaction changes her life forever.

But was he a dream or a reality?

A half a lifetime later she's in another car accident and falls back into the 19th century and meets with the man from her youth. But she's stuck in the 19th century, and he is not what she believed.

When she awakens from a coma, she again has to consider whether this was a dream or if it was reality (or some version of reality).

This story is an amazing blend of historical romance and contemporary fiction. Megara and Rory's love story is beautiful and haunting, and it was very difficult to put this book down.

"A fanciful romance with lots of twists and turns, and a magical setting!"

Booker Dead Heat Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE....
A new breed of killer has hit Dallas. The victims? They bleed blue. And the brotherhood is calling in the cavalry: one Booker T. Adams, PI.

Excommunicated from the Dallas Police Department for refusing to overlook conduct unbefitting an officer, Booker has every reason to slam the door shut when the chief pleads for his assistance. But Booker can’t turn his back on the community he’s always felt drawn to protect, even if it means getting in bed with someone who tried to ruin his life.

As pandemonium floods the city from the inside out, Booker chases an invisible plague. He can’t stop what he can’t see. And then the unthinkable happens. Another killing…and this one guts him.

Driven by an eternal camaraderie he’d once shared with his long-time partner, Booker shifts into overdrive to end this sinister game, some sort of sick vigilante justice.

A vengeful fury of his own takes hold. And the damned can hear him coming.

My thoughts:

Booker is my favorite P.I., and his current story definitely doesn't disappoint! After someone starts murdering police, the chief approaches Booker to put an end to the killings. Are they being murdered because of a specific case? Or is someone out to kill cops in general?

Will Booker be able to find the killer before the city dissolves into terror? Can he survive the horrors that he'll experience? With Alisa by his side at work and in his personal life and Bolt learning to live within the law, you never know what's going to happen!

As always, Mr. Mefford has told a story so rich in detail that you can smell the urine and the trash (even if you don't want to), and with a cast of characters whose lives you get immersed in and you can't help but cheer for them and mourn their losses. 

This is book 6 in the Booker series, but it can definitely be read as a stand alone story. However, I definitely recommend reading them all! You'll thank me for it.

Seized by Love Book Review and Giveaway

 photo seized by love badge_zpsogf4g5b8.png

NEW RELEASE........
New Addition to the Love in Bloom Series, Seized by Love, Book #1 The Ryders

YOU FELL IN love with Blue Ryder and Lizzie Barber in Seaside Summers, now follow their journey to find true love in SEIZED BY LOVE, the first book in the Ryder series.

Lizzie Barber runs a successful flower shop by day and secretly hosts the Naked Baker webcast at night to help pay for her younger sister’s education. To keep friends and family from finding out about her sexy secret, she’s put her social life on hold until her sister’s education is paid off and she can stop filming the webcast.

Blue Ryder fell hard for Lizzie Barber when he met her a year ago, and he hasn’t been able to get her off his mind since. Everything about the feisty little brunette, from her tight bod to her seductive smile, cuts straight to his heart. Though Lizzie has turned down every invitation he’s extended—Blue is not about to give up trying. 

Renovating Lizzie’s kitchen brings Blue further into Lizzie’s life, and the oven is not the only thing heating up. One night and one powerful kiss changes everything. But when Lizzie’s secret is revealed and the safe bubble she’s hidden in shatters, true love may not be enough to put the pieces back together.

*** THE RYDERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 5-book hot contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction. While each book may be read as a standalone, you might enjoy reading the entire Love in Bloom series (The Snow Sisters, The Bradens, The Remingtons, & Seaside Summers)

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts:

While I always love Melissa Foster's books, this one takes the cake (very interestingly shaped cakes even)!

Lizzie is one of the most caring and loving characters I've seen in a long time. While she was in college her family fell on hard times, and Lizzie turned to a wig, glasses and a very carefully placed apron as the Naked Baker in order to put herself through college. She would've stopped long ago but now she's supporting her younger sister and putting her through college.

But Lizzie is very ashamed of her night job, and she refuses to get into any relationship because she knows that no one will understand.

Blue is a gorgeous and very handy man who is doing lots of home repairs for Lizzie, while asking her out every chance that he gets.  They have a ton of chemistry, but Lizzie can't allow herself to get into a relationship, and Blue has been hurt in the past and has trust issues.

Will they be able to make a relationship work? Or will their pasts (and present) derail any potential relationship they may have?

Laguna Lights Book Review and Giveaway


New Release....
Welcome back to Laguna Beach...

Laura Kinkaid’s glamorous Hollywood life is falling apart. After years of reality television stardom beginning in high school on Laguna Nights, her career and relationship with her long-term boyfriend Scott are fizzling out.

Laura decides to go home to Laguna Beach for the weekend to attend a baby shower for her high school friend. That decision – and a car accident – will lead her to a new future, if she’s ready to take a chance at love. 

Paul Dorn’s former life in New York City is far behind him and he’s working in a popular Laguna Beach surf shop when fate brings the most beautiful woman he’s ever met into his life. The attraction is instant and he has an overwhelming desire to protect her. While Paul’s retail sales career is a short-term job for market research purposes, his focus on Laura is long-term.

Will Laura allow a handsome stranger to help her create a future unlike her past, or will the bright lights of Hollywood pull her back to LA?

***Laguna Lights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone read. And if you enjoy Laura and Paul's story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.

My thoughts:

Initially I was excited to read the newest book in the Laguna Beach series, but when I discovered that Laura was the main character I almost changed my mind about reading it. I disliked Laura so much during the previous two books, so I couldn't imagine reading a whole story about her.

Boy was I wrong! Laura and Paul's story was heartfelt, it was sweet and funny, with a little bit of weirdness and a lot of surprises! I love that both Laura and Paul are restarting their lives, and that Laura has decided to reconnect with her Laguna Nights friends (and frenemies). I really enjoyed the continuing story of the town and its inhabitants.

This book can definitely be read on its own, but you'll enjoy it so much more if you read Laguna Nights and Laguna Heights first.

Also available
Laguna Nights (Laguna Beach Book 1)
Madison Alcott was back in her hometown, caring for her sick mom and working long hours at the best resort in Laguna Beach. She never imagined she'd return to the place where she became famous on the hit reality TV show Laguna Nights, and the place where she was humiliated on national television. Fortunately, the past had stayed tucked away until her old high school boyfriend appeared in the lobby.

Josh Welsh was a superstar by age eighteen, the bad boy break-out star of Laguna Nights. Since then, his star had lost its shine and he barely was holding onto his Hollywood status. When he was asked to host a new reality travel show, he jumped at the chance. The only problem was the first episode was shooting in Laguna Beach. Of all the reasons Josh didn't want to return home, he hadn't even imagined the worst scenario: running into Madison "Holly" Alcott.

Josh's connection to Madison was still as strong as her anger at his betrayal. When the new reality series forces them together, they must face Laguna Nights past and present, and navigate a journey where nothing is as it seems.

***Laguna Heights can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novella. And if you enjoy Annie and Hank's story, please consider reading the rest of the Laguna Beach series.
