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: Royally Screwed by Emma Chase

Royally Screwed (Royally #1)
by Emma Chase

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.

Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.

There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.

But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

 

I am not quite myself today. Early on, I was getting displeased at a certain prince, wondered if I would be able to tolerate him. And then in the end, I found myself sobbing like a kitten who lost her mitten and then I began to cry.. (wait, that sounds like a nursery rhyme!)

Oh well, please, allow me some moments to indulge in His Royal Hotness, as I still have a royal hangover from Emma Chase’s enigmatic prince. And do forgive me for acting like a fool in this review, as I believe this one deserve to be tackled at length.

At first glance, at first meet, at first impression, Prince Nicholas Pembrook came off as an annoying, obnoxious, irritating prince with unsavory character. I thought he was going to be that typical bad boy royal who thought so highly of himself, but halfway through the book, my thoughts about him turned upside down. A royal with a heart, a prince with sense of humor, a brother torn between duties and family and love.

Olivia Hammond had it hard and difficult. Her life seemed to be at shambles ever since her mother died and her father broke down from heartache. Her little firecracker of a sister Ellie was the one thing that got her up and running in their quiant coffeeshop, Amelia’s, even when it was on the verge of foreclosure. (I thoroughly love Ellie, by the way!)

And then she met this prince who thought so highly of himself, offered her a thousand euros for a kiss. If you were in Olivia’s shoes, would you decline the offer, or go kiss and tell?

I can’t believe this is just the first time I read a book by Emma Chase. Why, why, why? What have I been reading my entire life?

One moment I was okay, the next minute I was tearing up inside. I don’t know how to handle these princes of Wessco. At first I thought I’d see Nicholas and Henry as the laidback versions of Prince William and Prince Harry of Wales. Mostly of their family tragedy and military involvement and party-party inclinations. But the moment Nicholas brought Olivia to Wessco and introduced her to the palace, I stopped comparing the royals and saw Nick at a whole new light. He’s amazing. He’s fantastic. He’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of. And he’s everything I’d never get. (Lucky bloke!)

And Prince Henry… my goodness! I was so wrong about him at the beginning. I thought he was immature and insensitive. But when he poured out his heart, I cried along with him. I can’t wait to read what happens to him after Nicholas dropped the bomb at his feet. O.M.G.

And Olivia, you feisty American gal, how could you be so much lucky. I’d love to trade places with you one day, have a taste of living in the palace and being with His Royal Hotness himself 24/7. How would you like that?

Emma Chase, I am so sorry I haven’t read your past books. I am so sorry I had put off reading Royally Screwed two months ago when I got it on my Kindle. I am so sorry for the stars in my eyes whenever I see Nicholas on that book cover. I am so sorry for acting like a silly little girl right now. I bet Queen Lenora won’t approve of my behavior. But I am not sorry for falling in love with your story and for falling hard for Nicholas. And I am sure, I won’t be sorry meeting Prince Henry real soon.

Thank you Emma for this has been a royal rollercoaster ride and I love riding every minute of it.

Now, please let me find Nicholas’ Calvin Kleins before I go to sleep… uhm wait… he doesn’t wear CKs OMG!!! *hides face*

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.

Review: Untapped by Weston Parker

Untapped
by Weston Parker

Some desires are better left uncovered…

Erik Bertinelli is the son of the vilest mob boss in all of New York’s underbelly. He’s the enforcer, the hitman for the syndicate, and the type of guy who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty. His hideaway is as unconventional as they come… the New York Public Library.

With a thirst for knowledge and a grand getaway at his fingertips, he loses himself daily in the dusty tales of old. Life is too f*cked up most days of the week. Peace would be beyond welcomed.

Grace Adams desires more than anything to live fully alive, and yet, she’s doing just the opposite of that. She’s a librarian at the New York Public Library and spends her days wishing like hell that she could disappear into one of the romance novels she reads.

With an imagination that would shock her family and friends, she keeps to herself and lives in the colorful parts of her mind – alone.

Untapped.

When the same deliciously dangerous alpha male keeps showing up between the bookshelves, her daydreams quickly dive into passion that feels too good to be true. The kind that could burn anyone involved. The kind she would do anything for. Maybe even kill…

This has been a really nerve-wracking read, dynamic action erotic drama that would have your heart pumping like crazy. I cannot explicitly describe how this book got me hook from start to finish. It took me a lot of willpower to get away from this book. Seriously.

The main male protagonist isn’t the kind of book boyfriend you would want to admire nor get involved with. A member of a Mafia clan, ruthless, deadly, monstrous, that’s Erik Bertinelli for you. But Grace Adams wasn’t at all perturbed by such characteristics. Dressed like an old librarian should be, Grace captured the eyes and heart of the Mafia assassin and it was just a matter of time before he defied all odds and put a bullet to the one that made him suffer his whole life.

Erik and Grace’s relationship was doomed right from the beginning. The head of the Mafia made sure of that. It was really a surprise to me that I ended up liking the story, given the fact that I am really not into organized crime stories. Well, the only other crime syndicate novel I’ve read before was TOXIC, which was the first book in this same series. {Reviewed here}.. The brutality of Mafia and all other syndicates oftentimes scared me. But Weston Parker made this story quite fascinating and mind-blowing. I was shocked when I got to finish reading the book in one night.  Now I cannot wait to read what happens next to the doomed lovers! Yay!
