Blurb From Goodreads:

Detective Mark Colby is used to being in charge whether it’s on the job, or in the bedroom. He knows the rules and follows them to the letter, that is until she steps into his station.

Detective Antonia Rossi has always had to fight her way to the top. Being the police commissioner’s daughter in a male-dominated profession has always come at a price. When she’s assigned as Mark’s new partner, she knows she’s in for a fight. Mark’s reputation for dominance proceeds him, and he makes no effort to hide it.

Can duty override desire, or will it end in a fiery crash of wills? Sometimes the crash is worth the burn.

My Review:

Pretty good story. A few things bothered me though. For a stand-alone story, I still felt a little lost with the other characters. And I don’t understand why Amber got her own point of view, she really wasn’t one of the main characters, and we don’t really get closure with her. At first, it seems like she is but I was left with many questions. And Mark, I wouldn’t want him as my book boyfriend. To me, he was just a selfish jerk that wasn’t willing to put any work into the relationship, quick to assume the worst without letting anyone explain anything. I already live with one of those, I don’t want to read about it. I was hoping with the issues that Amber and Mark were having that the story was going to show how they were able to work things out to get their HEA. Nope, that’s not what happens at all. Overall it was an interesting story but I just didn’t connect with the characters at all.

Blazing #BlogTour & #Review: Wicked Dirty by J. Kenner

Sometimes bad isn’t good enough…

On the outside, Lyle Tarpin is a clean-cut Hollywood actor whose star is on the rise. Inside, he’s battling his own demons, shunning relationships and finding solace in the arms of a string of anonymous women paid very well for their discretion.

But when he’s photographed in a compromising position by an over-eager reporter, the only way to save his career is to say that the woman he was with is his fiancée. And now Lyle has to play a very public game with the only woman who’s ever managed to get under his skin.

Struggling waitress Sugar Laine agrees to spend one night with Lyle—but only because she’s desperate to save her family home. She never expects that a night of passion will turn into a pretend engagement … or that the heat between them will blossom into love.

But sometimes love has a price.

And now the only question is—can Lyle and Sugar afford to pay it?

My blood pounds through my body, my heart beating so hard that I can feel the pressure not only against my ribs, but against the wall behind me. My lips are parted, my breath coming in shaky gasps.

He’s only inches away, so close I could reach out and touch that famous, gorgeous face. His eyes, as deep and blue as the summer sky, roam over me. He eases closer, moving slowly, his face reflecting a hunger that sends shivers through me.

Once again, my mind conjures the image of a hungry wolf. Only now I’m thinking that maybe getting eaten wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Besides, I’m here. Might as well enjoy it.

Then, of course, I remember exactly what it is.

Oh, God.

His fingertip brushes my forehead, and I almost jump out of my skin. I meet his eyes, see something that looks like irritation, and want to kick myself. I need to focus, dammit.

“You were somewhere else.” He speaks flatly, as if he’s working to keep all emotion out.

I shake my head, conjuring a lie. “I’m right here.” And then, because I’ve seen movies with call girls, I put my hand flat on his chest, trying to seem seductive. He’s wearing a gray T-shirt, and I can feel his heart beating beneath the planes of his muscled chest.

I read somewhere that he was getting in shape to play a superhero in an upcoming movie. And kudos to whoever’s orchestrating that transformation, because this guy is rock solid.

He’s still looking at me, and I fist my hand in the material of his shirt, needing an anchor against the storm of emotion I see playing out on his face. Desire. Hunger. Longing. Regret.

And pain. I see so much damn pain that I have to fight the urge to cup my palm against his cheek and tell him that whatever it is, it’s going to be okay.

Instead, I simply whisper, “Lyle?”

I’m not sure if it was the wrong thing or the right thing to say, but I know that it was unexpected. And before I can apologize or cover or say anything else at all, he is on me. One hand at my throat, the other hard on my breast. I’m pinned against the wall, helpless, as he claims my mouth again. Wildly. Brutally.

I try to think what I’m supposed to do—try to respond. But I’m trapped. I’m not Sugar. I’m not Laine. I’m not anyone. This isn’t about sex. It’s about pain and need and that storm of horrors I saw on his face. I might as well not even be here. And as his hand squeezes tight on my breast—as his mouth clashes so hard against mine that he draws blood—my only thought is that I shouldn’t have come at all. That this was stupid. Foolish. And that this night is going to leave me scarred.

I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to be what he wants. A warm body. An anonymous female.

But I can’t do it. I can’t do it at all.

All I can be is me. A woman desperate enough to have sex for money. A girl trying anything and everything to save her house. To protect her family’s memory.

I can be that girl.

But I can’t be nothing. I can’t be no one.

And as his hand tightens in my hair—as he kisses me violently—as his body presses hard against mine and I feel the steel of his erection—I know that I’ve made a terrible, horrible, awful mistake.

Stop!

REVIEW:

5 wings

As usual, I couldn’t put it down! And I’m so happy that we got to have Lyle’s story!! Damien is still my favorite but so far all the guys in the Stark world are awesome. Not a one isn’t book boyfriend material, and oh so swoon worthy. I love how we’ve heard of Lyle before, we know about as much about him as any other fan does, practically nothing. But we’ve met him, we know he’s hot and must be a good person since Damien likes him lol. And I loved getting to know him better!! But if you haven’t read any of the other Stark books, no worries, you aren’t going to be lost reading this stand-alone. But I do suggest you read them all!

My Review:

Talk about intriguing! It starts out as a paranormal romance but by the end who knows what’s going to happen. Warning, there is a cliffhanger and waiting for the next book is going to be hard. Ophelia is Ilya reincarnated, we get a few flash backs that answer a few questions but leave more in its wake. The unexpected twists and rising number of unanswered questions will keep you hooked until the end, which will then have you screaming for more!!!

Blurb From Goodreads:

Track The Ripper brings you a new twist on Jack the Ripper… 

New Londone is drowning in social and political unrest, a society on the verge of collapse and a people overcome with despair. Police and citizens in the Whitechapel District are at each other’s throats. Mob mentality has taken over, and lingering suspicion and heated tempers are raging on both sides of the thin line between good and evil. To make matters even worse, there’s a depraved killer on the loose, targeting the working women in East Edge. 

Inspector Frank Abberline has finally clawed his way out of the seedy Whitechapel sector, only to be sucked back in when the homicidal maniac begins to unleash his tour of terror. It is not the inspector’s first rodeo, but this is also not the typical case. Something’s very off about this killer, a lurking darkness even more depraved than the mayhem the inspector has unearthed before. 

Will Inspector Abberline be able to reevaluate his beliefs or even set them aside so he can track and hopefully catch the Ripper?

My Review:

Wow, not sure yet if I can call this paranormal but there are hints that it is. It’s more of a modern day Ripper story but with the feel of it being historical. Very interestingly written, at first I thought it was historical but then the police computer and cell phones kind of threw me off. But the hints of paranormal kept me hooked, along with the characters. I look forward to reading book 2 to find out what happens next.

Destined to be enemies, bound by fate… 

Prince Ariston rules over the Allegiant – an elite faction favored by the Greek Gods. Separated from his family at a young age, he became a prisoner to the rebellion. 

Marylyn O’Conner is a rebel, forced to do the rebellion’s bidding until an unforgiving family debt is paid. A pawn in the war for rebels to gain their freedom, she is obligated to become a spy, or her family will suffer. 

Driven by revenge after returning from captivity, Prince Ariston makes it his mission to hunt down rebel spies, capturing Marylyn O’Conner in the process. 

Desperate, Marylyn knows she needs to escape her alluring captor, or risk the safety of her family. 

A fast-paced romance that will have you fall in love with each character and keep you turning the pages for more!

My Review:

Wow!! Can I have book 2 like right now?? Other than Prince Ariston seeming to fall in love with Marylyn way too quickly, which gets explained much later in the book, I had so much fun reading this. I could barely put it down (which is why it was read in one day)!! So very glad this is a series, otherwise I’d be very upset that so many things were left hanging. I consider this somewhat dystopian because the Greek Gods, with the help of their followers (humans), have wiped out most of the world’s population. The rebels don’t worship Zeus or Poseidon so they were forced to go into hiding to survive. It’s also kinda Romeo & Juliet, Prince Ariston is with the Allegiant, those that worship Zeus and Poseidon while Marylyn is a rebel and worships Hades. There are also sea nymphs and I can’t wait to find out what other mythical creatures will appear.

Blurb From Goodreads:

TO THEM, HE WAS AN EXPERIMENT
TO HER, HE WAS FAMILY

The first time I saw him, I had no idea he was created in a lab.

I’d been living on the streets for around eight months before I lost count. It wasn’t easy, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home. In all that time, unable to trust anyone, I had been alone (I knew from experience that people always failed you). Then one day, while out searching for food, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked.

It wasn’t a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn’t a normal dog – he was crazy intelligent. I’m talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn.

The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would’ve been the end of our story if we hadn’t been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully’s clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe…

Even if it meant risking my own life.

My Review:

First off, be sure to read the author note in the beginning. Going from screen writer to author isn’t easy. That being said, this book was awesome! There were times when it changed from first person to third but other than that, one of the best written books of the year. Granted, this is my opinion but I LOVE detail and this book had it in spades, but not to the point where it was nauseating or boring. The characters seemed so real and had so much depth that now that I’ve finished the book I feel their loss in my life. There really wasn’t anyone I couldn’t relate with, even the bad guy. Totally understood what he was trying to do and why, but I still couldn’t condone it. It’s not often a book comes along like this and I’m so glad I decided to read it. And the fact that it’s a series, I plan on reading them all!

Author Bio:

Jo Ho I’m a self-taught, award-winning British screenwriter and director who gained my first broadcast credit when I created and wrote one of CBBC’s most ambitious productions in history, the action packed-fantasy, SPIRIT WARRIORS starring Jessica Henwick (GAME OF THRONES, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and Marvel’s upcoming IRON FIST) and Benedict Wong (DOCTOR STRANGE, MARCO POLO). The show was the UK’s first TV drama series to star a predominately East Asian cast, with myself the first Chinese person to have created a UK drama series.

Known for my high concept genre work, I have developed a number of original television series including a medieval action adventure for acclaimed producers Morgan O’Sullivan and James Flynn (THE BORGIAS, VIKINGS, PENNY DREADFUL), a US genre show for Rick Porras (THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) and Gary Pearl (JANE THE VIRGIN), and an action fantasy drama for OSCAR nominated producer, Meta Louise Foldager Sorensen (A ROYAL AFFAIR, MELANCHOLIA). I also have several original screenplays in development including supernatural thriller, BLOODLINES, family fantasy, SKETCH, and CHINA BLUES, a comedy drama, funded by CREATIVE ENGLAND.

In 2010, I was named Winner of the Women In Film and Television’s ‘NEW TALENT’ Award. I was also nominated for CDN’s ‘BEST BREAKTHROUGH PRODUCTION TALENT’ Award, with Spirit Warriors in the running for ‘BEST CHILDREN’S PROGRAMME’ at 2011′s Broadcast Award’s. I was also named one of the Top Ten Outstanding Young Chinese People in the UK, and presented with the Big Ben Award for ‘OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT BY A CHINESE WOMAN IN THE UK FILM AND TELEVISION INDUSTRY’.

In addition to writing, I also direct. My first short film Isolation 9 won best film at the Buffalo San Film Festival. I followed this up with Monkey Nut Tales which was chosen by Film London for their prestigious PULSE strand. The short film debuted at the Times BFI London Film Festival.

Wanted, Book 1 of The Chase Ryder Series is my first novel.

Rapturous #Release #Blitz: Destined To Crave by Setta Jay

Fate gave them love… then tore them apart.

The descendant of two almighty Gods and a Guardian of Earth, Eirykr “Rykr” is born of immense power. Yet, no amount of strength or skill can save him from the curse that tore him away from his first and only love. Turned into a shadowy assassin, he wields the demons bound to his soul with the ruthlessness of a blade. For nearly a decade, he’s searched for the key to free himself, all the while watching over and dangerously craving the beautiful mate who believes she’s driven him away.

Lucy is a born protector, a trait of her Guardian lineage. When her greatest gift was torn from her, leaving a gaping hole in her soul, she refuses to allow a young Rykr, her known mate, to suffer the same dire consequences. Her fear forces her to make a haunting decision and with a grave threat, she crushes him, demanding they part for a decade. Yet, as the years pass she can feel him watching her from the shadows, conjuring wild fantasies that make her ache for him to finally end their torment.

As time ticks toward the decade mark, dark forces rush to descend. Will Rykr’s secret and relentless need to protect Lucy condemn them to a hopeless destiny of constant craving? Or will Lucy bind them for all eternity, no matter the violent threat to her very soul?

Warning: This title contains dirty talk, bad language and erotically charged scenes meant to scorch your eReader.

Other than being WAY too short this start to the spin-off series is just as hot as the original series! I loved it!! And I’m so looking forward to seeing where this goes with the demons. And having the characters from the original series is just so perfect, like visiting old friends. Time-wise there is a big gap between series but there’s just enough backstory to ensure you don’t get lost. What’s even better is that even if you haven’t read the original series there’s no need, other than characters it’s like nothing was missed.

My Review:

That was such a fun ride! Solina is one of my favorite female characters. She’s not afraid to admit fear but she’s not willing to let it rule her life either. She stands up for what she believes in and won’t back down. Such a great ending! As much as I hate that this series is over I absolutely loved reading it! Other than a few spots of “down time” it was nonstop action and adventure with a bit of romance (finally)near the end. If you’re looking for a modern Norse tale then look no more.

My Review:

I am so bummed that this series is over but man it was good! Strong female characters with hot dragon shifters, always a read to look forward to. I especially enjoyed the sub-plot going on in the background, it carries through all the books, even more so toward the end. And yay!! There’s a spin-off series, which is good since the story really wasn’t over. Yes, the HEA is there but the Dark Fae and fallen angels situation hasn’t been taken care of. The treaty has been renewed (not really a spoiler since it’s an HEA) and Erelah is now a mother. That’s where the  “it can’t be over” part comes in but that I won’t give away (I’m evil, I know hahaha). This one was full of oh no moments, the stop breathing, grip the book harder, try to read faster type of moments to the point of sitting at my desk and reading instead of working. Having to force myself to put it down, throw in the sexy, naked dragons and there’s no way I want to stop reading! Great characters, great world building, truly worth reading.
