Double Crossed: Stolen
A Dark Romance
by Sabrina Howl

It was just a regular day at the bank for Lisbeth – clock in, manage funds and let finances dictate her flow. That normality is shattered the moment two criminals pick her bank to cash in on. When the alarm is tripped and the duo trapped inside, she’s the lucky human shield that gets them past the cops. Though Lisbeth considers herself another victim of their crime spree, she can’t deny her attraction to the men. They might have stolen her, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enlighten her – or that they can’t show her exactly what her monotonous life has been missing.

 

DOUBLE CROSSED: STOLEN is a dark steamy romance with themes of kidnapping, captivity, MMF action and guaranteed to get your heart racing!

Lisbeth was a banker who was caught in a crossfire when two armed and masked men took over the bank for a holdup. She’d been taken hostage by the men and was used as a human shield to be able to escape the cops. Little did she know that this was the start of a more gripping, if not more dangerous life she’d ever led.

Warren and Callum may have had hit the jackpot, not only because they had robbed a bank, but also because they met the woman who made their life even more exhilarating than ever before.

While I wasn’t particularly in favor of the plot (robbing banks and holding hostages), I knew there was still something going on about the characters that will make the reader have second thoughts. There’s a lot more than bank robbery and even kidnapping. The two male characters could definitely set the fire alarm for their extreme hotness and fiery attitude. Lisbeth was definitely in for the shock of her life.

This has been a rollercoaster of a story, a little too raunchy for my taste but proved to be quite promising.

Review: Total Abandonment (Unbearable Passion 4) by Scarlett Avery

Book Title: Total Abandonment
Series Name: Unbearable Passion, Book 4
Author: Scarlett Avery
Genre: Billionaire Romance Series/Erotic Romance

 

After a saucy weekend, Bryce declares his love for Sofia in the most unexpected way.

Bryce would do anything for his Sofia and there’s no doubt he loves her with all of his heart. But when Sofia introduces Bryce to her sizzling hot younger sister Ciara, Sofia smells trouble.

Every boyfriend she introduces to Ciara always falls for her ravishingly beautiful sibling.

Will Bryce and Sofia’s love survive Ciara’s legendary charm? Will Sofia come in second place again and lose the man she loves?

The last chapter in the Unbearable Passion series and I’m thrilled how it ended. Sofia and all her insecurities are eating up her insides now that she has to introduce her stunning sister, Ciara to her now lover extraordinaire, Bryce Van Linden. Ciara is great with light fixtures and she is hired by Bryce’s company to install new lighting in his New York office. Sofia doesn’t want them to meet, because Ciara is so gorgeous, that everyone she had liked before always chose her sister instead.

Trust and loyalty are put into test in Sofia & Bryce’s relationship, and I can’t really blame Sofia for all the doubts that clouded her mind. I love how Scarlett Avery continuously blow my mind with all these hot and steamy scenes and beautifully narrated story. The characters have their unique personalities and flaws, but those doesn’t deter me from genuinely hoping for their happily ever after. Their journey may have been quite a rocky one with pitfalls but seeing their smiles towards the end was worth it.

Did I mention the super erotic hot scenes that had the reader wide-eyed right at the start of the book? Better read this series so you’ll know what I am talking about. Ciao!

Review: EXPOSED – Unbearable Passion 3 by Scarlett Avery

Book Title: Exposed
Series Name: Unbearable Passion, Book 3
Author: Scarlett Avery
Genre: Billionaire Romance Series/Erotic Romance

When a man truly loves a woman he’ll do anything in his power to win her back.

The romantic adventure between Bryce and Sofia intensifies and it becomes clear it’s much more than a business arrangement in this sensual, sexy and steamy love story.

Tragedy strikes and Bryce is stuck in Silicon Valley desperately trying to dig his company out of a PR nightmare.

Stranded alone in Manhattan, Sofia is forced to accept work with another client who whisks her away on a two-week business trip to South America.

Has Bryce lost his Sofia forever?

He exhales sweet hot breaths into my mouth as he kisses my lips hard. It’s as if he’s ready for a second round of a steamy romping session before he catches his flight. I don’t want him to leave, but I know that I cannot ask him to stay longer or for him to take me with him.

He turns me around so I can face him, gently brushes the hair off my face, as he softly kisses the tip of my nose.

* * *

Bryce and Sofia had become physically distant for the meantime in this third book. Van Linden had no choice but to go and oversee his company’s problem on another state. And then a really unfortunate tragedy befell his friend, so he had to be away for a while. What with all the controversy surrounding his friend’s personality, he hardly had time to be with Sofia. Gosh, he missed her so much!

 

But the lady in waiting had to eat and earn and pay bills! So Sofia had no choice but to accept another escort job, much to Bryce’s consternation. That, and the fact that they’re both unreachable due to communications failure, had almost put Bryce to the brink. Now he’s wondering whether he’d still see his ladylove and if so, would Sofia still have the hots for him?

Oh.. My G.. I thought this book could not get anymore steamier than ever. Everytime Bryce and Sofia are alone together, I have expected a lot of sparks and explosions and groundbreaking scenarios. Scarlett Avery did not disappoint. Even though their alone time together was lesser compared to what they’ve done on the other books (really sexy erotic time together, I must say), the author made sure that the main characters couldn’t and wouldn’t take their hands and limbs off each other. (insert evil grin here!)

And also, now that Bryce knew Sofia’s real name and identity, I had this feeling that it won’t be long before her sister would finally learn about Sofia’s real job. Ohhh! I’m so excited for this! Can’t wait to get my hands on the last book in the series!

Review: French Kiss (Unbearable Passion 2) by Scarlett Avery

Book Title: French Kiss
Series Name: Unbearable Passion, Book 2
Author: Scarlett Avery
Genre: Billionaire Romance Series/Erotic Romance

They don’t call Paris the most romantic city in the world for nothing.

Sofia (aka Amanda) is back is this sensual, sexy and steamy alpha billionaire romance and she’s playing the role of exclusive escort to her first client, the smoking hot billionaire Mr. Van Der Linden.

This time her services to the eligible bachelor take her all the way to Paris.

But it’s never really all about business; it’s all about Amanda.

Can she really keep it together or will she unravel little by little?

Sofia Herrera’s naughty arrangement becomes a little more complicated—especially when Bryce Van Der Linden does his best to fully dominate her.

She can’t deny the obvious—her body, mind and soul yearns for the dashing billionaire.

I can’t seem to stay away from Bryce Van Der Linden.. and I have a perfect reason why.

Billionaire Van Linden is an enigma. A force to reckon with. A man with balls of fire. A man with the most tantalizing eyes and hot kiss – well, that’s according to Sofia. Being in the city of love, Paris, truly escalated their relationship, inside and outside the bedroom, specifically. I wasn’t there to taste his lips, but I am 100% sure that this bad boy billionaire alpha could very well make my head turn and my lips purr.

OKay, sorry, I’m getting a little creepy here. Forgive me. Author Scarlett Avery has that magic touch when it comes to her writing. She’s an Amazon Bestseller, so that’s really saying something! Her characters are so adorably naughty and nice, I bet Santa Claus would have a hard time getting her a present.

Anyway, I love how fast-paced the story went, how delicious the scenes had become, how steamy the pages turned out until the end. But wait, there is no end yet in this book. Because there’s still book 3 where we’ll get a glimpse of the lovers’ other sides while they’re separated from one another. Gotta read the next book, ASAP!

A desperate woman. A dashing alpha billionaire. An unlikely love affair.

She’s a successful businesswoman turned high-priced escort. He’s a dotcom billionaire visiting NYC. She’s about to meet her first client and in order for this encounter to be a success, she has to follow the rules.

Lose yourself in this sensual, sexy and steamy alpha billionaire romance series between Billionaire, Bryce Van Der Linden, and former real estate queen-turned-escort Sofia Herrera in this kinky and tumultuous billionaire erotic romance series.

This alpha billionaire romance is full of mind-blowing sex, spanking and afternoon quickies in public places.

I so did not see this coming!!

Amanda, an expert in four different languages found herself entangled behind the sheets of one of the most eligible billionaire bachelors, Bryce Van Der Linden.  After a failed business career, she turned to a high-priced escort job, changed her name to Sofia and discovered something she never knew existed in the world of billionaires. Bryce did something most women never thought was possible. I myself couldn’t put my mind to it, but this is what I have to say – it was definitely mind-blowing!

It was really an exhilarating experience reading this book by Scarlett Avery. To say that the scenes contained in the story were deliciously wicked is putting it mildly. I’d rather say, this was an epic erotic feat! I was able to read this in just a couple of hours and really blew my mind and I even felt my nerves gyrating. Never Say Never could easily put Sylvia Day in a dim-lit corner because Scarlett Avery steals the limelight with this Unbearable Passion! Totally wicked!

Review: HUNTED by Elizabeth Naughton

Hunted (Eternal Guardians #8.75)
by Elisabeth Naughton

Erebus – Dark in every sense of the word, a skilled and lethal warrior, and sinfully sexy by design.

Since the dawn of modern man, Erebus was Hades’ secret weapon in the war between the immortal realms. Until Hades lost the minor god in a bet to his older brother Zeus. For the last hundred years, Erebus has trained Zeus’s Siren warriors in warfare and the sexual arts. But he’s never stopped longing for freedom. For a life filled with choice. And lately, he also longs for one Siren who entranced him during their steamy seduction sessions. A nymph he quickly became obsessed with and who was ripped from his grasp when her seduction training was complete. One he’s just learned Zeus has marked for death because she failed the last Siren test.

Before Erebus can intercede on the nymph’s behalf, she escapes Olympus and flees into the human realm. In a fit of rage, Zeus commands Erebus to hunt her down and kill her. Erebus sees his opportunity to finally go after what he wants, but he’s torn. Freedom means nothing if the Siren at the center of his fantasies doesn’t truly crave him back. Because defying the gods will unleash the fury of Olympus, and if he chooses her over his duty, whether she joins him in exile or not, the hunter will become the hunted.

Erebus had served the gods all his life,  from Kronos,  to Hades,  and later on,  to Zeus. Under Zeus, he trained Sirens on their Seduction technique and one blonde nymph had captivated him from the start.

Seraphine.

She lost her memories when Zeus picked her to train as one of his Sirens.  But something triggered her memory and she realized the harsh truth about the Olympian.  Something that made her escape his clutches and forego the freedom she’d always wanted to achieve.

But there were consequences that must be met,  decisions that must be made, a body that must be fulfilled and a heart that must be hunted in order for the truth to be revealed .

As expected,  this has been another fantastic read from bestseller Elisabeth Naughton.  This time, a primordial deity takes the center stage as he struggles to fulfill his duties with Zeus and question his loyalty once he realized the truth about the Siren he’d grown to love and implore.  Erebus is such a strong character,  very protective and sincere with his emotions.  Seraphine is one of the stronger heroines I’ve encountered,  feminine yet lethal,  seductive yet stubborn,  sweet yet strong.

I love how Sera’s story being a nymph from Atlantis came about.  I’ve always been fascinated with stories concerning Atlantis and that back story about her family was impressive.  I love how her true nature was explored and inhibited in the book. I loved the sparkling chemistry between the two. I think this is my favorite among the 1001 Dark Nights/Eternal Guardians series yet.

Naughton never ceases to make my heart swoon and get excited!
P.S.

Don’t ask me about the erotic hot sexy scenes. This aint’ for the faint of heart. Be warned.. and be delighted! Erebus and Sera behind closed doors and in between sheets would put a shame to Fifty Shades.

Review: Falling For the Fake Fiance by Jennifer Blackwood

Falling for the Fake Fiance

(Snowpocalypse #2)
by Jennifer Blackwood

Jill Michaels prides herself on one thing: being independent. That is until her daughter gets into an elite school, and she needs money more than ever. It seems her fairy godmother—aka her deceased Grammy—has granted that wish in the form of one-fourth of her estate. The only catch? She must be married by her thirtieth birthday. In two months.

Aaron Collins is fresh out of the army and back in town to help his father’s failing business. When he runs into Jill at a hotel where she’s attending a single’s mixer, he makes sure she doesn’t make it past his room and into another guy’s arms. When he hears about her predicament, he has a plan: they’ll get married and keep it a secret. And maybe have a little sexy fun until he leave towns for his new job.

But letting go of the woman of his dreams may be harder than Aaron could have ever imagined.

This is oohhh la la.. Oh yeah, that’s what I said after reading this book and Jennifer Blackwell is just to be blamed. Although we’ve all heard about pretend lovers falling in love, might sound cliche and all that, but I still  went for this story and I loved it! I’d never settle for just one night with Aaron Collins if I were Jill Michaels. Ha!

Single mom Jill was still in mourning over the loss of her dear grandmother. But Grammy seemed to be still in control of Jill’s love life when she decided to bequeath 1/4 of her estate, provided that Jill get married before she reached her 30th birthday. I bet Grammy was rolling in her grave, laughing and dancing when her will was read. Her timing was impeccable, too, as Jill’s daughter successfully got listed to an elite school, and whether she liked it or not, she really had to find that perfect fiance before her inheritance got poof!

Fortunately, her old schoolmate slash next door neighbor Aaron Collins was back in town after his military services. When her friends Mia and Kate set her up with Mr. Hottie, it was just a matter of time before they left each other breathless with kisses. Dayum!

A secret wedding was supposedly the plan, but everything changed when the matters got out of hand. Fake fiances or not, this whirlwind romance got me and had me falling in love all over again.

I remember reading one of Jennifer Blackwell’s books a couple of years ago and admired her writing. Now, after devouring this latest book in less than a day, I can say I admire and adore her even more. Blackwell had me giggling and gawking and getting googly-eyed most of the time. And yes, sighing and covering my mouth and closing my eyes a few times, trying to suppress my grin when reading those steamy scenes. More than steamy actually – it was fiery!

Overall, Aaron and Jill had that explosive chemistry that I like in a story. I expect much more sexy stories from Miss Blackwell soon and I’m sure she won’t disappoint.
