Bad Boys After Dark: Mick Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASE........
Bad Boys After Dark: Mick

Indulge your inner vixen...

You asked for naughtier lovers, with the same fierce loyalty as The Bradens - Meet the Bad Boys... Four sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. .

Everything's naughtier after dark...
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party. 

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

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

My thoughts:

Mick and Amanda are both looking for a one night stand. Mick is trying to ignore the fact that he's very interested in his employee, and Amanda is trying to have some fun, instead of boring dates with boring men.

They meet at a masquerade party and have a very hot encounter in the bathroom. However, Mick figures out who his date is and cuts the party short. But Mick couldn't stay away from Amanda, and offers to teach her what she's looking to learn.

This is a VERY steamy book! Be prepared to stay up all night reading, and then not be able to sleep because you're too heated up.

This book is part of the After Dark series, but it can definitely be read as a standalone story (but you'll really want to read the rest!)

Executed in Paradise Book Review and Giveaway


When a body turns up at the Cottages, Madison and Fab are on the case. But when the killer makes a habit of discarding bodies on Madison’s property… it’s personal.

While on the hunt for the killer, the duo track down a double-crossing bail jumper, repossess a Lamborghini, and Madison lands her first case.

As more bodies pop up, the cops are eager to name a suspect. When a close friend is arrested as the prime suspect, Madison and Fab will stop at nothing to prove her innocence, but will they be too late?

Executed in Paradise, the ninth book in the scorching Paradise series about best friends who maintain the peace in the paradise of Tarpon Cove through unconventional ­– and highly entertaining – measures.

My thoughts:

As always, I love Fab and Madison's antics! I know I'll always enjoy reading Ms. Brown's books.

This time around, bodies are turning up on Madison's properties, so the murders are definitely hitting too close to home. One of their friends is arrested for the murders and then goes missing, so Fab and Madison are fighting even harder to prove her innocence.

Madison and Fab balance trying to solve the murders with handling PI cases for Brick and Spoon, which makes for a hilarious combination of work to be done.


This book is a fun read with just enough who dunnit to keep the pages turning quickly. Be prepared to read the whole book in one sitting, because it will be hard to put down!

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”
Available to buy from.....

"The Paradise series has it all! There is action, mystery, murder, romance, humor, & the greatest friendship of all time." 


"Multiple story lines made it impossible for me to put it down. The suspense, humor, love, romance, and of course touches of sarcasm, make this book the best one yet."

"I absolutely love the stories of Fab and Madison. You never know what is going to happen next. Adventures, drama, love, and all the humorous situations they find themselves in make wonderful reads."
Above reviews from Goodreads/Amazon

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Violated Book Review and Giveaway

New Release....
Sometimes the past should stay there… 

The murder is one of the most heinous FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher has ever seen. But that’s not why he and two members of the team are rushing to California. The Bureau is interested because the prime suspect is one of their own, Paige Dawson.

But Paige didn’t go to Valencia to kill anyone. She had set out on “vacation”—her new lover in tow—only to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. While the hands of the law are tied, she wants him to face the fact that he destroyed a young woman’s life and know that, as an FBI agent, she’ll be watching his every move. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she wound up in the back of a police cruiser.

Now Paige must face off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on the case, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there, possibly waiting to strike again…

My thoughts:

This is the first of the Brandon Fisher series that I've read, and I can't wait to go back and read the previous books!

Ms. Arnold has a wonderful way of describing her characters and her story. While some of the descriptions were gory, I felt that they were necessary for the story development, so that you truly understood what the detectives were seeing and feeling.

Paige Dawson set out to California to confront the man who destroyed her friend's life, yet she soon finds herself arrested for murder after being found on his property. She uses her phone call to call an FBI friend (instead of her boyfriend), which causes relationship drama.

Is this the work of another person angry at a rapist? Or is it the work of a serial killer? Can the FBI find out who is committing these heinous crimes before one of their own spends more time in jail?

This book has so many twists and turns! Once you start reading it be prepared for a wild ride!

Touched by Love Book Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE........
Touched by Love, The Remingtons #6, Love in Bloom

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she's spent her life proving it. She's moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she's forced to give up the very independence she's worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream―being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely―a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie's rescue, she's forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there's more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn't the only one who needs healing. Boyd's painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

My thoughts:

I've read a LOT of Melissa Foster's books, and this is by far my favorite of her books. The descriptions in this book are amazing, specifically since most of the descriptions are touch or scent based (since Janie is blind). This also made for much much hotter scenes of intimacy, because it's so much easier to immerse yourself in the scene without the visual descriptions.

Janie is definitely a very independent woman. She also has a stubborn streak a mile wide, since she's spent her whole life proving to the world that she can do things by herself. Boyd has spent his entire life focusing on one goal, and he doesn't want to give it all up for a woman.

A freak accident on the subway makes Janie dependent on other people for a change, and Boyd is happy to come to her rescue (and nurse her back to health). But their lives are moving away from each other at neck breaking speeds, so will they be able to sustain a relationship? Or will their ships pass in the night?

This book can be read as a stand alone book, and it seems to have less character crossover than many of Melissa Foster's other works, but I still recommend reading them all! You won't regret it (until you get to the last book and are forced to wait for the next one to come out).

*** THE REMINGTONS are part of the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 6-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, Seaside Summers & The Ryders)
