Title: Spider Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills Publication Date: November 13th, 2017
From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new standalone romance about a flawed hero and the woman he can’t forget.
"She crossed my path and changed my whole direction."
He calls himself Spider.
I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane.
I didn’t know who he really was…British rock star…my stepbrother.
He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would.
Everyone warned me about him.
They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up.
They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart.
Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.
They say an unbreakable thread connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.
He just had to figure it out before it’s too late…

Excerpt:

How can one human man be so hot?
Spider sits on my toilet, shirtless, while I dab at his swollen eye. I’m doing my best to keep my eyes averted from the ink on his body, the way his tattoos swirl underneath his jeans, the way his chest is carved from stone.
Of course, I’m the stupid person who suggested he remove his shirt so I could see if he has any bruising on his chest. A cracked or broken rib can cause a lot of pain, and I want to be thorough, that’s all—I swear to baby Jesus.
He grinned at my request and whipped it off—which is the reason I’m now a mess.
There’s hardly any room to breathe with him in my small bathroom. I wipe at the spot of blood on his cheek as he watches me stoically, never taking his eyes off me, tracking my every movement.
“This will look worse tomorrow,” I murmur, just to ease the tension. I stand between his spread legs, acutely aware of his fresh scent, his pure magnetism. My hands shake and I have to focus to push an image of me straddling him, both of us naked, out of my head. I want to run my tongue over the tattoo on his neck. I want to bite him like an animal while he—
Good grief, Rose, stop the fantasy!
“You’d make a good nurse,” he says softly, his long black lashes fluttering softly against his chiseled cheekbones.
“Doctor of Psychology,” I correct him.
“Your dream?”
“Yes.” Although right now I’m dreaming of him… “I know that feeling. That’s how music is to me.” His golden-brown eyes watch me as I reach over to the medicine cabinet for more antiseptic and antibacterial cream, my chest perilously close to his face. I swear my nipples are reaching for him.
“Why psychology?”
I nod, pretending like I’m not all discombobulated. “My granny mainly. She loved to read people—literally. She ran a little palm-reading business out of her home before she died. All the old ladies of the neighborhood would come to see her. She’d make them coffee and they’d just…talk. She’d tell them what they needed to hear while I sat on the floor next to her and listened. There wasn’t any magic involved of course.” I laugh. “But…she was incredibly intuitive. She just got people. If someone twitched or looked left or right while they were talking, she’d have a reason for it and she’d tell me all about it after they left.”
“I think I would have loved your granny.” He curls an arm around me, tugging me close until my chest is a hair’s breadth away from his face. I recall our epic kiss on the plane. I feel the pressure of his taut thighs and my breath quickens as desire unfurls inside me.
A hum warms my blood. I want him—desperately.
And it’s entirely foolish.
He’s my stepbrother.
He doesn’t call girls back.
“Why does it seem like I’ve known you forever?” I ask, feeling myself gravitating closer.
He thinks about it, pushing a piece of hair out of my eyes. Cupping my nape, he pulls me in tighter until our noses meet. The back of his hand caresses my cheek and the heat from his touch burns, yet there’s a tautness in the roped muscles of his arms, as if he’s holding himself in check.
“Because I am you,” he says softly. “We’re so much alike, it’s staggering.” He pauses and stares deep into my eyes.
I nod. I can’t think. He’s so close to me, his eyes burning into mine. He closes his eyes and exhales. “I want you, Rose. You’re intoxicating.”
I suck in a sharp breath, our lips inches apart.
Is he going to kiss me? I want him to.
His eyes open after the silence has gone on too long, a smirk forming around his mouth. “You scared of me, Rose?”
Never.
“I’m scared you’ll rip my heart out.”
He stares at the LOST tattoo on his hand. “I probably will.” Spider-AvailableNow-KU.jpg

Review:

Rating: 1 out of 5 stars

It has been 5 hours since I finished the book and I believe I have calmed down enough to write this review. This review will be full of spoilers because when I rant I don't have a filter. If you have read the first book in the series I bet you will love this one. It's practically the same story with different people. 

For me, the one good point in the previous book was Malakai and Amelie. Well, their story was ruined in this book and I have lost all hope for the series. I am going to read more books from Bella Jewel because I have liked most of the other books I have read from her, but I am giving up this series. In the next book, the main couple will be in a cabin in the woods and I bet the hero will still find someone else to sleep with.  Because that's what the heroes in this book do. For example, early in this book, Makalai orders a member of the club to bring in Bree because he wants to relieve some tension from not been able to do anything with Amelie. I honestly believe this series has 0 romance and is just sex. Amelie spends 60% of the book being a pushover and lets everyone in her life guilt her into doing something. She lets her mother verbally abuse her and force her to visit her ex-boyfriend because she ruined his life. She wasn't the one who grabbed the steering wheel and made the car move out of course. And her ex is still an a-hole. At least Amelie got her backbone and took the reins. I started to like her until she made the same mistake as Scarlett. She slept with the hero after she found him with another woman. Like minutes after. At least this time the hero was caught before he did something with the other woman.


Hushed torment has practically the same plot as Whiskey burning. The hero is no good for the heroine, sleeps with another woman to get rid of some tension, tries to win over the heroine, doesn't trust her because that's the right thing to do (Malakai didn't even let her explain her part) sleeps with another woman and the heroine like a sheep with no will forgives him. Clap clap ladies. Give them some hard time. Make them regrets their actions. This review is me giving up the series.

Blog Tour: Rock solid by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde


SBPRBanner-RockSolid-BT

Rock Solid, an all-new sexy and romantic standalone by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde is available NOW!!

CPEWRockSolidCover5x8_BW_HIGH

Rock Solid by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde Publication Date: November 14th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Connor Prescott doesn't do one night stands (yes, ladies, he's an anomaly) so when he meets a beautiful woman during a snowed in night at the airport who wants to forget her heartache, he makes an exception. Their night together is incendiary, and by morning Connor wants more . . . except his sexy stranger is gone. He's pretty sure he'll never see her again, until three and a half years later she finds him, and changes his entire world with three little words . . . You're a daddy.


Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars



Each book in the series is getting better and better for me. I loved Rock solid. As I have said before manwhoring has become one of the things I expect to read in a book and I don't like it much. Every hero these days can fit into the same mold. Connor is a different kind of guy though and I liked that. He was a very sweet person and he is more like the version of a man every woman needs. He does all the right things and you don't have to worry about STDs. From the moment he found out he had a daughter he was there and didn't make a big deal (unreasonably) over the years he had lost. He accepted the situation and instead focused all his energy on winning his daughter and baby mama's love. He is one of my favorite heroes because he is a combination of a sweet, caring man and an alpha without the drama. In this book, he did nothing but the best for everyone. Katie, on the other hand, was a little faulty. For me, Connor is perfect, so don't assume that Katie is a bad person. Connor has everything figured out in his life with a loving family and a successful job, but Katie is still haunted by her parent's bitter divorce, which leads her to have a few hang-ups and making the situation more difficult. Her parents did a work on her, so from the moment, she finds Connor's contact information she starts to worry about visitations and custody. It wasn't pretty and it made the book a little less fun. Still, I loved Rock solid and its hero so I am a happy woman and I am giving the book a nomination for my favorite reads of 2017.



Excerpt:

Connor scrolled through the list of movies on pay-per-view for the tenth time, not sure what Katie might be in the mood for. He'd raided the mini bar as promised, and all the junk food loot was on the coffee table awaiting their impromptu slumber party. He was just waiting, albeit impatiently, to find out if Katie was going to join him or not. After her emotionally draining day, he wasn't sure she was going to be up to hanging out, and as much as he'd understand that decision, the thought mostly disappointed him. When he heard the door to her bedroom open, a flood of relief coursed through him. "So, what are you in the mood for?" he asked, anxious for her to join him and hoping that she sat on the same sofa as he did instead of the single chair opposite the couch—Jesus, what was he, fourteen? "We've got our choice between a romantic comedy, action adventure, or a horror flick." "None of those," she said, her voice soft and husky as she approached from his peripheral vision. "The only thing I'm in the mood for is . . . you." Certain that he'd heard Katie wrong, he turned his head to glance at her. His jaw dropped open in shock as he stared at the stunning, erotic vision standing a few feet away from him, dressed in a sinful red ensemble that screamed fuck me, please. Unsure as to what was going on—was he being cruelly punked right now?—his entire body went rigid, including his dick, as he desperately tried to clear the lust that was quickly fogging his brain. He managed to close his mouth, but that only made his jaw clench achingly tight as he fought off the urge to do something stupid, like push her down to the couch and give free rein to the attraction they'd both been skirting. Jesus, he couldn't tear his eyes away from her and the see-through lingerie that exposed more than it covered, teasing him mercilessly. The sheer underwire cups pushed her generous breasts up like an offering, barely containing all that mouthwatering fullness, and her tight, rosy nipples pushed against the thin, lacy fabric. The skirt of the short gown draped over her midsection like a veil, sheer enough for him to see the indentation of her waist and flare of her hips, and a pair of tiny red matching panties he wanted to tear off of her with his teeth. He swore beneath his breath, and when she made a soft, uncertain noise in the back of her throat, he jerked his gaze back up to hers. He caught a quick glimpse of apprehension shimmering in those big brown eyes, which contradicted the bold, brazen woman currently standing in front of him. "Maybe this was a really stupid idea," she said in a voice that cracked with a wealth of doubts, right before she turned back around and rushed toward her bedroom in a blur of red material that swirled around her waist and thighs. Realizing that she believed his hesitation was because he didn't want her, Connor jumped to his feet and reached Katie before she made it halfway across the living room. He caught her around the waist with a strong arm and hauled her up against his body, her back to his front—and quickly realized what a huge mistake that was. She valiantly struggled to break free of his hold, the curve of her delectable ass shifting and wriggling against the thick length of his cock already straining the zipper of his jeans. He gritted his teeth at the onslaught of lust racing through his blood, threatening to eradicate his self-control and any rational decisions he needed to make. And the situation definitely called for him to remain level-headed so he could think with his brain and not his unruly dick. She tried to push away his arm one last time, but when it didn't budge, she made a frustrated sound. "Just let me go, Connor," she said, her voice defeated and so damn vulnerable. "Please." He wasn't releasing her until he knew she was okay. "Katie—" "Don't make this any worse than it already is," she said, cutting him off, her entire body still unyielding against his. "I must have misread your interest, and I don’t think I can handle getting rejected twice in one day." Aww, fuck. The very last thing he felt for her was disinterest, but he didn't want to take advantage of her or the situation, either. He released her and turned Katie so that she was facing him, hating the wariness in her gaze. She looked like she was going to bolt again, and he wasn't about to let that happen until they got a few things straight. With his hands gripping her hips so she couldn't go anywhere, at least not easily, he backed her up a few steps, until she was trapped between him and the wall. The impulse to run his hands up the indentation of her waist to the breasts nearly spilling out of her flimsy top was so strong and so distracting he had to place his palms safely on the wall on either side of her shoulders. She tipped her head back to look up at him, and he nearly smiled when he saw the earlier doubts that had been clouding her gaze were now replaced with a stubborn attitude that turned him on way too much. "First of all, you didn't misread anything," he told her. "You surprised the fuck out of me, because I didn't expect you to come out of your room looking like a goddamn sex kitten. And secondly, I'm not rejecting you personally." Her chin lifted obstinately. "Just what I'm offering?" The corner of his mouth quirked at the impudent tone of her voice, and before he could think better of it, he touched one of the soft, blonde strands of hair that fell to the swell of her breasts. He rubbed the silky texture between his fingers, immediately imagining how it would feel to have his entire hand wrapped around the length. Tugging. Pulling. Her gasping. Moaning. Begging. The heady images in his head fueled his growing hunger for her. "What, exactly, are you offering, Valentine?" he murmured, knowing he was torturing himself but beyond caring any longer. She rolled her eyes at him. "Isn't it obvious?" He watched as her tongue dampened her bottom lip, spurring more dirty thoughts to fill his head. "Tell me," he said, the words a gentle demand. "Just so it's clear for both of us." She hesitated for a moment, as if gathering up the nerve, then spoke. "Remember that fantasy I told you about earlier? The sex-with-a-stranger-in-a-hotel-room fantasy?" How could he forget something like that? "Yes." She exhaled a breath. "That's all I want. No last names. No personal information. Just a night of hot, mindless sex." Yeah, that sounded damn good, except he was already coming to want so much more than that with her. ROCK SOLID AN

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant “skillfully melds history and legend” (RT Book Reviews) in a brand new series – The Kindred.

To live in the light, they hunt in the dark…

Unparalleled in beauty and daring, Leoma has been raised with a single-minded focus—to wipe out corrupt witches. But when her new target leads her to a discovery that unveils a graver plan from the Coven, she doesn’t hesitate to follow. Yet, she’s not the only one on the hunt. And the sexy, infuriating man who crosses her path could prove to be a distraction—something she’s never encountered before.

Honor and family mean everything to Braith. When his life is turned upside down by the murder of his ward and heir without cause or reason, he has no choice but to turn to vengeance. Until a stunning, dangerous woman continues to thwart his efforts at every turn. Now, he must battle not only his need for revenge but his desire for the female, as well.

Review:

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Eversong is the first full-length book in the Kindred series by Donna Grant. In this book, we have Leoma a brave hunter who is after the Coven and Braith a man who seeks revenge from the Coven. They join forces to end the witches and during their quest they manage to fall in love. Before you begin this book keep in mind that is set around the 14th century. If you don't like that or witches, hunters and other stuff that come with them don't try to read the book. The main villain of the series is going to be the witches. If you do like this stuff prepare for a journey. The story seemed simple at first, but new characters were introduced and we had some revelations that made the book better than just good. I hope we will see more of Braith and Leoma in the upcoming books because not only were they a great couple, but they also have to take care of a couple of things. The next book will future a new couple and I don't remember if we have met them in this book, but I hope they will be from Leoma's clan.

I am definitely looking forward to the next book. We saw some secondary characters in this book that share their point of view with us and they were very interesting. I don't know if they are going to get their own book, but I hope they will at least appear in the series until it ends or they die (I hope they won't die and they will live happily ever after. Amir man, I am looking at you and your lady). I liked the pace of the story, but I couldn't help but feel like the wording of the characters was not appropriate for the time the book was set. It felt too modern time-y for me. I don't read many books like that and it might be just me, but I can't get it out of my head and that's one of the reasons I cannot give a higher rating to the book.

Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

As I was starting to gather my thoughts for this book, I realized that I didn't have much to say. Pretty much nothing to be honest. I thought that the reason I had nothing to say had to do with how much I liked or not the book. Well, I liked the book. I liked how this novella is not about sex or something like that. The book almost didn't include any sex scenes, which would have been a shame. This is the story of two friends who realize that they have feelings for each other and they can no longer contain them. There is a simplicity about this book and a lack of drama that made the story perfect. The thing is the everything worked so well in this book I have nothing to complain about. It's a great friend to lovers story and I am sure you will fall in love with Sam and Maggie. I did.


Excerpt:

Every now and then, Sam would shoot me a sympathetic look, knowing that I had no idea what they were talking about, but in truth, their company was a welcome break. Between what the woman in the shop had said and the lady on the plane’s insinuation, my mind was going a mile a minute and I was beginning to look at Sam in a way I definitely shouldn’t be. Okay, so, yeah, he was sexy. That was a no-brainer. I shot him a furtive glance, taking in the corded muscles of his forearms and the lock of dark hair that constantly flopped onto his forehead. And sure, he was sweet and attentive. He looked after me and made sure I always had a fresh drink and that I wasn’t cold or hot. He held the door for me and pulled out my chair when we went to restaurants. Hell, he’d been looking forward to this trip for months and he’d sacrificed an entire day just to make sure I got here safe and didn’t spend my time sulking. Still, that didn’t mean he had feelings for me. He hadn’t argued when I’d mentioned us being like brother and sister or anything. No, this whole line of thinking was ludicrous. Sam was a good friend. That was all…wasn’t it? After all, Trevor had loved me once and he never did any of that. Admittedly, that wasn’t the best example, but it proved my point all the same. In Sam’s shoes, Trevor never would have missed the chance to hit the slopes with his friends. He hadn’t even skipped the business trip that fell on my twenty-fifth birthday years back. But Sam was there, my brain supplied helpfully. Again, not an indication that he had feelings for me. People were just different. Sam was one of the good ones. And if he liked me surely I’d have known by now. He’d have told me or…something. “Is that your phone?” Sam turned to me and I blinked, only realizing that I’d been so encompassed in my own thoughts that I’d totally zoned out. “What?” I asked, confused. “Don’t you hear that vibrating noise? I think it’s your phone.” I listened hard and then heard the low, gentle hum he was talking about. “Yep, probably you-know-who again.” I sighed, but fished the phone from my tiny handbag all the same on the off chance it was a family member with an emergency. It wasn’t Trevor, though. He had called—I had seven new missed messages from him since I’d left for the airport, but I also had three missed calls from my friend Deanna. I hadn’t spoken to her in more than two weeks because she’d been away on a long-awaited safari, but now more than ever I really needed to hear her voice.

Blog tour: Ryan (Jagged Edge #8) by A. L. Long


Title: RYAN
Series: Jagged Edge #8
Author: A. L. Long
Genre: Adult, Erotica Romance
Published: November 16, 2017
Page Count: 178 Pages
Following the same routine, day in and day out, Charlie Winters was about to give up on getting the break she deserved. Things begin to look up when her brother Nick suggested she to come to New York to work at his landscaping company. Moving from the small town of Cedar Grove to the big Apple was everything Charlie dreamed of, until her brother witnessed a brutal murder, which put his life in danger. Charlie would do everything she could to protect him even if it meant contacting the boy she fell in love with as a teenager.

Leaving the only girl, he had ever loved, the last thing Ryan Hyatt expected was to run into her, especially in Manhattan. Regretting his decision to push her away after he had enlisted in the military, he tried to make it up to her by offering to protect her brother Nick. When tragedy stuck, he soon found that his brother Josh may have been involved. Ryan would stop at nothing to protect the woman he would never stopped loving.



Review: 

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

I know I want to read the next book in the series because the hero is very intriguing, but I am afraid I am not going to like the book. Ryan could have been a good book if I believed that Ryan was working for a security company. In a couple of situations the clues were painfully obvious and yet Ryan couldn't see them. If Ryan was ordered to protect me I would have been afraid. I could have liked the book, but it didn't work for me in the end and I just stopped trying to like it. The heroine was a good person, but what kind of sister stares at her brother's arse? And likes what she sees? That creeped me out and since it happened in the second chapter it kind of sealed the deal for the rest of the book. You want to sell us your brother as a catch? Don't do it like that. Incest is never a good thing. I am going to stop my review here because the best parts of the book had to do with Josh and I cannot comment on his story. I would say, skip this book and go for the next one.



Some would call me a little naughty but I see myself as a writer of spicy thoughts. Being an erotic romance writer is something that I never imagined I would be doing. There is nothing more rewarding than to put your thoughts down and sharing them. I began writing three years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. When I first began writing, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to write. It didn’t take me long to realize that romance would be my niche. I believe that every life deserves a little bit of romance, a little spice doesn’t hurt either. When I am not writing, I enjoy the company of good friends and relaxing with a delicious glass of red wine.

Review: Defiant Queen (Mount Trilogy #2) by Meghan March


 

    


The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment? They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body. But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy. I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules. I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact. But he has other plans . . .   Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire. ADD TO GOODREADS

   Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I want the trilogy to end because these cliffhangers are annoying. How could anyone expect me to wait for the third book after everything that happened in this one? The plot's development was different than the one I expected, but I can't say I minded. I enjoyed the book a lot and I cannot wait for the final book to be released. We have to find out how the characters will react and how things will change. This time the story alternates between Keira and Mount's point of view and I loved that. I got a better understanding of both characters and I can say that this trilogy is evolving and is getting better. I still have 100 questions about the characters and I want to see how Keira and Mount will get their happy ending. Should I not assume that? I don't know what to expect anymore. I gotta to say though that Mount managed to win a spot in my heart and I want to see Keira bringing him down to his knees. I want to see him getting softer. I liked Keira more in this book too. She is the same woman he met in the first book, but she has toned down some parts of her attitude and everything is perfect. I don't think they will be in the first book because I have a feeling something big will come. Too many things have to happen in the next book and Defiant queen is here to warm us up. I can't wait for the next book to come. One month and 3 days to go!

New Orleans belongs to me. You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn’t know she caught my attention. She should’ve been more careful. I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It’s time to collect what I’m owed. Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount. *Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*   ADD TO GOODREADS
