Review: Love in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre

Love in Lingerie
by Alessandra Torre

I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didn’t expect her to become my friend. I didn’t expect to fall in love with her.

The first rule of business is to never touch your employees. I think there is another rule about not falling for your best friend—a rule against imagining the curves of her body, or the way her breathing would change if I pulled down her panties and unzipped my pants.

Now, I can’t wait any longer. I’m tossing out the rules.

Damn the company.
Damn our friendship.
Damn my fears.

This has been so tantalizingly sexy, deliciously funny, definitely hot and sexy.

Kate Martin is looking for a job after feeling so under-appreciated in the lingerie company she’d been working at. She met Trey Marks, dashingly handsome and rich and hot. She can think of so many things to do with the man, but she isn’t one to misbehave herself, especially after getting engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Craig.

Well, she isn’t going anywhere whether she likes it or not, because if there’s one rule that Trey Marks religiously implements and follows, that is not to get associated with his co-worker, no commitments, no touch, no feels. Even if Kate Martin happened to be the woman who rocks his world.

Trey Marks isn’t the kind of man I’d want to consider as a book boyfriend, what with all his crazy and naughty ideas and kinks, but Kate Martin sure is the one that has slayed him. Props to this feisty girl who had full control of herself even if she really wants to get a taste of her boss the moment she sees him. Took them years and years – that’s long enough to do the inevitable, that was quite painfully slow if you were to ask me.

But when the love was consumed, everything around them burned and exploded. This is quite a shocking and aggressive read. My first Alessandra Torre book and this won’t definitely be the last.

 

Review: Breaking the Rules by Ali Parker

Breaking the Rules
The Rules Series 3
by Ali Parker

Dr. Kendal Tarrington has a deep hole to dig himself out of. His current lover looked so much like his last one because they’re related. He’s going to need to break the rules if he expects his relationship with Dana to take center stage in his life. With as badly as he wants love, there shouldn’t be anything he’s not willing to do to get it.

They say everything that’s forbidden to you is really sweet. And breaking the rules is just as delicious as a treat. Professor Kendal Tarrington had been burned when he fell for his student years ago. And now, history seemed to be repeating itself, with him again falling in love, this time with the sister of the girl he once broke the rules for.

And so Kendal was once again reeling from another broken heart.

I love how this series has ended. Teacher-Student relationship has always been frowned upon. A lot of you would tell me that kind of relationship is taboo and naturally a grave situation that must be dealt with seriously. But I’d like to believe that everyone has a right to fall in love with the one that their heart desires. There are those who really deserve a chance to cultivate that kind of relationship. I was happy with this story because Kendall proved he was someone who stood by his choice and didn’t step on one’s toes. I liked that Dana proved that she was worth the wait.

And I love that feeling of mushyness and awesomeness whenever I finish a series by Ali Parker. She never fails to surprise and amuse me. She always delivers the best stories.

Review: The Art of Catching a Greek Billionaire by Marian Tee

The Art of Catching a Greek Billionaire
(Greek Billionaire #1)
by Marian Tee

Once upon a time, there was an ordinary girl who grew up listening to bedtime stories where there were no knights in shining armor or Prince Charming. Instead, it had Greek billionaires and this little girl dreamt she’d one day have Her Own Greek Billionaire to live happily ever after with.

When this little girl grew up, she did what she could to make her dream come true.

This is my story.

I mean your story.

I mean, Mairi Tanner’s story.

Mairi Tanner had dreamed of marrying a Greek billionaire for as long as she could remember. But bagging one was next to impossible especially when there were mean girls that were out to quash her dream.

When the ripe time came for him to meet the Greek billionaire she’d been waiting for, it was only a matter of time before she got another Greek falling for her. And her life would never be the same again.

I enjoyed reading this book. Finally I know now how Mairi and Damen Laventis had met and stirred the flames that engulfed their love story. It was really interesting and rather fascinating to see a woman live up her dreams and never let anything destroy it. I’d say, Mairi did a great job catching not only one but two billionaires. Lucky you Ms.Yay!

As always Marian Tee delivered another exciting series that makes women weak in their knees, sweat trickle down their necks and gasp for breath. Those are definitely a Marian Tee guarantee.

Review: Play (Stage Dive 2) by Kylie Scott

Play (Stage Dive #2)
by Kylie Scott

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.

Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?

OMG!!!

Hot damn! This was so good, I couldn’t put this book down! Mal and his crazy antics would be the death of me. And I don’t blame him if I’d die laughing with him right now. Seriously.

Kylie Scott continues to rock my world with her awesome Stage Dive stories. I thought David Ferris was already a cool dude in the first book, Lick. Until I got a glimpse of one of his bandmates, Malcolm Ericson. Oh man, this guy stood out and stood loud and proud. A certified hottie, I must add.

In this second book, PLAY, Mal is an enigma. Seriously, this talented drummer is so good with his hands, and mouth. He is the life of the party and when he speaks, everyone listens. And gets mesmerized.

No wonder Anne Rollins can’t stop gazing at him with her crazy eyes. This poor gal has been cheated by her roommate who took off without paying her debts to her. Badly needing help with her housing predicament, she soon agrees to Mal’s offer and the two lovers are inseparable ever since.

Life with Mal Ericson is full of fun and excitement and laughter. I wish I was in Anne’s shoes, spending the night with him and shouting expletives and what not just to piss off the other couple next door with his crazy antics. Oh god, Anne and Mal’s pretend bed moments were really hilarious! They even broke the bed by just screaming! How much more if they give in to their carnal needs. Seriously, this book is everything!

I dunno how to proceed with my review without revealing the rest of the story, so I gotta stop now. So far, Mal Ericson is my book boyfriend of the month, and I intend to enjoy each and everyday with him. Gosh, Kylie Scott, you are making a fool of me, but I like it! Yay!

 

OMG… I didn’t know that the book, PLAY was published exactly 3 years ago. Is this just a coincidence, or what? I really didn’t know about this, but let just say, Happy Birthday PLAY and MAL Ericson! 

Review: Relentless River by Lindsay Cross

Relentless River (Men of Mercy #10)
by Lindsay Cross

He was Ice.

Sheriff Bo Lawson was everything a retired Marine Special Operations Operator should be. Cold. Calculating. Calm in all situations. He handled terrorists and too drunk locals without blinking, until a couple of dead bodies show up in his small town, throwing his controlled environment into chaos.

She was fire.

Cheri Boudreaux, manager of the local bar, lives her life by one rule – work hard and play harder. The last thing she needs is a repeat of her father: a strict stick-in-the-mud unable to veer from the rules. Then she meets Bo, a walking, talking sex god in uniform and her preconceived notions incinerate.

Ice meets fire.

Bo craves order. He craves control. He craves a red head with a wild streak wider than the Mississippi. She is everything he despises, but can’t get off his mind. So, when Cheri needs help, he wants to be her knight in shining armor.

Threatened by a deadly foe neither of them could predict, Bo and Cheri clash in an uncontrollable inferno. When the truth is revealed, their world falls apart – can they find the strength to fight for each other or will their newfound love fall under a relentless tide of evil?

There’s another dead body found in Mercy, and Sheriff Bo Lawson vowed to put a stop to it. A former Marine Special Operations Operator, Bo had it bad when he blamed himself for his team’s death. Now he would do everything to catch the criminal threatening his town. Even if his lady love was involved.

Cheri Boudreaux managed a local bar that was always a target for trouble. She’s got men vying for her attention, but her sight was only focused on one man alone. Cheri was a tempest, with a dark family secret. Seriously, this woman could do all things to Bo, seduce him, stimulate him, antagonize him. And in all those attempts, she always succeeded. Except that one time when she got shot by a bullet and her cousin was pursued by a cunning murderer.

So far, the last book I’ve read in the Men of Mercy series was Revenge River, and boy it was action-packed and marvelous. Nightshade and Merc left a lasting impression on me. So when I learned about the release of Relentless River, I didn’t have second thoughts reading it.

And I wasn’t disappointed at all. Lindsay Cross still has it, ten books and counting!

I loved Sheriff Bo’s character. He was indeed relentless but Cheri had full control of him. Bo and his uptight demeanor towards Cheri made him more irresistible like a pint of ice cream under a hot sunny day. Lickable!

The drug-related issues and murders were really the main focus of the story and I liked that it was tackled at length throughout the book. Now the erotic scenes between the characters, though, hmm, those were something else. Definitely hot and spicy!

Looking forward to reading more of these Men of Mercy in the next months to come. Can’t wait to meet Riser’s match!

Review: Witness Seduction by Elle Kennedy

Witness Seduction
by Elle Kennedy

Surveillance Report

DEA Agent: Caleb Ford

Subject: Marley Kincaid, aka Nurse Hottie

Purpose: Kincaid’s drug-dealing ex, Patrick Grier, is on the run after killing a DEA agent. Grier won’t be able to stay away from Kincaid–she’s way too tempting…

Day One: Kincaid oblivious to the danger. Spends all her time doing sexy yoga. Damn, she moves her body in tantalizing ways.

Day Three: If I see her curvy silhouette one more time I’m in serious trouble.

Day Five: No sign of Grier, but after a few days of observation, things are getting incredibly…er, hard.

Day Seven: I had no choice but to make contact with Kincaid. Now that I’ve touched her, it’s impossible to stop. The investigation is jeopardized. Seduction is imminent… God help me.

thoughts-divider

DEA Agent Caleb Ford was on a mission, and part of the job was to keep his eyes on Marley Kincaid.. And he’s really got his eyes on her, alright, not for her beautiful physique nor breathtaking beauty. He’s got surveillance all over her house and knew when she was going to do yoga or maybe have her bestfriend over. Hey, it’s all part of his job.. And he was doing damn fine with it.. Until she was about to fall from the roof while she was cleaning the gutters. And fall she did right into his arms.

Big mistake. Because Agent Caleb Ford wasn’t supposed to get in contact with the subject. Because he was supposed to be spying on Marley who could be aiding and abetting her ex-boyfriend turned drug dealer turned murderer. Yes, he wasn’t supposed to touch her…

Because one touch meant he would never be able to resist her again.. and again.. and again.

Witness Seduction is a great read! I didn’t know that this was a reprint of one of Elle Kennedy’s old novels. I find this high-octane, action-packed book very entertaining, thrilling and definitely seductive. And when it’s from Elle Kennedy, expect it to be steamy, hot and blazing!

Two days prior to reading this, I was so emotional and overwhelmed by the books I’ve read, so I decided to read Witness Seduction. I already expected it to be hot and fiery… What I didn’t expect was my lips getting scalded when sipping a hot cup of coffee while reading about Agent Caleb Ford and his unsuspecting subject. Damn him and his way with a lady.. So smooth and brusque at the same time. I wouldn’t mind getting my hands cuffed by this agent. Hmmm.. hmm.

Can’t wait to get my hands on another Elle Kennedy book again soon!

Review: Big Bad Royal by Tia Siren

Big Bad Royal: A Bad Boy Billionaire Romance
by Tia Siren

Does one royally hot night count as happily ever after?

coffeesynopsisdREBECCA MONROE:
Who the hell does this guy think he is? He stumbles into my bar in the middle of a snowstorm and tells me he’s going to kidnap me, knock me up, and then take me back to his country to be his queen. Seriously?

But if he really is who he says he is, then I’m in trouble.

Billionaire prince? Check.
Ruthless playboy? Check.
Muscles and an obviously huge package in his pants? Check.

There is no way in hell he’ll get me to be his princess. Not even for one night.

Because if he does, then happily ever after will be over before it even began.

PRINCE NIKOLAY “NICK” ROSTOV:
When my father, the king of Kosnovia, told me I must kidnap and marry an American girl to save his crown, I told him he was insane.

But time’s running out, and here I am stranded in a blizzard in upstate New York, and the only decent woman around is standing behind the bar.

A barmaid? I’m a freakin’ prince. I date actresses and supermodels, if you can call that dating.

But little Miss Can-I-Get-You-a-Drink makes the big prince in my pants want to come out and play.

So I’ll turn on the charm and make the barmaid my queen.

Just for one long, hot, royal night…

thoughts-divider

King Rostov of Kosnovia kidnapped his woman and made her his wife and Queen during the early days. Now, this small monarchy in Russia was on the verge of falling and it’s up to Crown Prince Nikolay to find a wife and bear an heir in order to save them and keep their reign.

Rebecca Becca Boo Monroe had taken control of her father’s bar after he died and she knew she’s stuck in this small hillbilly town. Then a ruggedly handsome Russian bombarded her bar during a snowstorm and pretended his car won’t start. The next thing she knew, Becca found herself locked in the stranger’s embrace and supple lips and was about to be kidnapped by a crowned prince.

Big Bad Royal is a hot and steamy read. You’d better wear gloves while reading this because the heat was so intense and crackling, you might end up having dark and jarred hands. It’s quite a short story, but definitely full of bedroom action. Did Nick and Becca end up? How did the prince become a billionaire? You need to read this to find out!
