So many of my favorite series are wrapping up and reading this one made me so sad! Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy is the last book in her Killer Instinct series and involved two couples I’ve been dying to read. We FINALLY got our Liam and Sully story and we also got Cate and Ash’s story to end the series with a bang. I am so sad to see this one end, but Ms. Kennedy ended it with perfection. [Read more…]
Brighter Than the Sun is the latest installment in the KGI series by Maya Banks, and fans of the series have been waiting for the last Kelly brother to meet his match. While I loved the book and the main couple Joe and Zoe, it was the scenes with Sean and Rusty that got me the most. Rusty broke my heart in this book and if possible, I’m dying for them to get their HEA even more now!!! Okay, back to Joe and Zoe – there was such a sweetness between these two and it wasn’t hard to root for them. When the end of the book came around I was surprised it was already over because I was enjoying the whole book that much.
Zoe Kildare has had a shitty life thus far. Her mother left when she was only five, and being the only daughter of a drug kingpin who doesn’t give a crap about her, left her vulnerable to being used by the wrong guy. She overhears a phone call where the man she thought she loved was talking about how he had been forced to sleep with her to get to her dad, and then casually mentions that he’s going to kill her since its clear the old man doesn’t care about her. Scared and having nowhere to turn, she calls her one and only friend from college Rusty. As it turns out, Rusty is a badass who can outdo even Donovan in the technology department. Rusty creates a new identity complete with full background and then takes Zoe home with her to hide out and regroup. [Read more…]
When Shayla Black announced that her Wicked Lovers series would be ending after Holding On Tighter I was crushed. This is one of my favorite series of all time and I have loved every single book. Considering this installment is the 12th full length story, and there have been 6 novellas, that is saying a lot! It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite couple or story from them all, but without a doubt Jolie is my favorite heroine from the series. Independent, successful and self-sufficient, aspects of her personality reminded me of myself and there was nothing I would change about her. [Read more…]
Lora Leigh doesn’t waste any time getting into the action for Part 3 of Only Pleasure. When Kia returns home, much to Chase’s dismay, they find that her apartment has been vandalized and all of her belongings trashed. The words Die Bitch and Whore are spray painted on her walls, and she is left terrified and confused. Chase believes immediately that it is Kia’s ex-husband behind the attacks, but she does not agree.
Knowing she cannot stay in her trashed apartment, Kia returns to Chase’s where he can keep a close eye on her. Although badly shaken by what has happened, Kia is determined to go to work and carry on with her life. I really admired her strength during all of these attacks. Most of all, she is scared for Chase’s safety and it is that simple act that seems to break through his defenses. He decides to wait until they figure out who is after her before he finally tells her he loves her. But at least he has admitted it to himself. [Read more…]
Part two of Only Pleasure by Lora Leigh begins with Kia questioning whether she can continue having a “pleasure only” relationship with Chase, while she is also beginning to tire of having Khalid present every time they are together. We also start to see glimpses of who Khalid’s heroine is, setting up for his future story.
Chase Falladay is continuing to deny that he is in love with Kia Rutherford and his brother is becoming increasingly concerned about him. Cameron knows that Chase is holding himself away from Kia because of Moriah and he feels a sense of guilt over that. [Read more…]
Only Pleasure is the 10th book in the Bound Hearts series by Lora Leigh, and was reissued in three parts like Wicked Pleasure was earlier this year. Only Pleasure picks up six months after Chase was forced to kill Moriah Brockheim to protect his twin brother and his fiancé Jaci. The book starts off with the Epilogue which happens two years earlier. Chase, in his position as a protector for Ian Sinclair’s club, is forced to meet with Kia, the woman who fascinates him like no other and ask her to humiliate herself. After Kia’s husband assaulted her and tried to rape her, she confided in a friend about the exclusive club and that rumor was spreading fast. Chase cannot allow him that to happen, but he vows to do everything he can to protect her.
Chase Falladay is drowning in overwhelming guilt. He blames himself for not being aware that his brother Cameron was being pimped out by their evil aunt, and he knows that Cameron said nothing to protect him. Adding to that guilt, he considered Moriah a friend and he didn’t have any idea that she had been plotting his brother’s downfall. When he and Khalid see Kia in a bar alone one night he loses the fight to stay away from her, and he convinces himself that he can keep it strictly about the pleasure. [Read more…]
Hunt the Dawn is the second book in the Fatal Dreams series by Abbie Roads. The first book was reviewed by Jen and it wasn’t for her, but I really enjoyed it so I jumped in to read the second installment. In order for me to enjoy a book with psychic elements, the story must be really good, and I liked Hunt the Dawn even more than Race the Darkness. The heroine has survived hell and come out on top and while she lets the hero help her, she is a badass in her own right.
We were introduced to Lathan Montgomery in Race the Darkness, but very little was revealed about him. With the ability to see other people’s memories through scent, he is a very valuable asset to the FBI. Unfortunately, this ability hits him at times when he cannot control it and the sensations are overwhelming. This has led him to a very lonely life. All that changes when he comes across a scene where a woman is being attacked, and he intervenes. [Read more…]
Jimmy Holiday, defrocked priest and newly unemployed graphic designer, is settling into what he hopes will be a more normal life. He’s looking for a job and preparing his house for Tabby, his witchy girlfriend, to move in. If you can ignore the ever-present spirit of Lucy, things are looking pretty normal.
That is, until Jimmy gets a phone call at 3 a.m. which poses more questions than it answers, though he is determined to write it off. When an old silver flask shows up from someplace in Tombstone, AZ, he begins to suspect that ignoring the situation might not be an option. That idea is confirmed when he comes downstairs one t morning and finds a mysterious iPad on his kitchen table, with video instructions from The Order and a credit card taped to the back.
So, it’s off to Tombstone, with Tabby, Lucy, and Isaac the Cat reluctantly in tow. The chaos is beginning. Again. [Read more…]
After my intense dislike for the heroine in the first two books in this series, I was really worried about this one. At some point I’m going to go back and re-read those two and see if my opinion changes but in the meantime, I definitely plan to keep going with this series. Thankfully I cannot say enough good things about Kept, the third installment of the Enforcers series by Maya Banks. Hayley and Silas were a great match for each other and I loved them both! I think Silas is my new favorite book boyfriend. [Read more…]
You know when you start a series and love it so much you want the whole lot to be complete? I badly want to binge-read this romantic suspense set of books right here, but I made a mistake and the third book isn’t out for months. My bad. Now I have to wait. Sad face.
Tabitha is a loner, and a world-class hacker. She’s no family, few friends and no need for money, since being left a fortune by her old employer. Tabby takes legit security jobs as a way of keeping her super-speed mind occupied, and to keep the demons of her locked-down memories at bay. One day, she’s propositioned with work by a man she loves to hate – one Conner Hughes. [Read more…]
