Escape, it was the reason James Riley flew to the other side of the world. His family believed he’d left for career progression—an opportunity he couldn’t pass up, and his lie was so good even he believed it. Australia was perfect for him. It helped him forget his one and only mistake. A relationship was the last thing on his mind because he was never going to fall for a woman again.
Ariana Scott thought she wanted a Dom. That choice cost her both blood and tears. A year later, she was still trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Her interest in the sexy British guy was too soon, too fast, and because of her job, off limits. But the lure of James Riley was a temptation she couldn’t shake off.
When a safe vanilla fling turns into a relationship, her career, her family, and her lifestyle threaten to tear her world apart. She’s fallen hard and is prepared to put everything on the line for James. He makes her question everything she thinks she knows about herself but there is only one answer when casual sex becomes more than desire.

Lorenzo De Santis is the boss. He’s an uncompromising hardass, he doesn’t suffer fools, and he doesn’t have time to deal with witless young interns. But when an old friend asks for a favor, Lorenzo can’t refuse. Even if it means taking on the man’s daughter as a project.
Kira Constantin: Rich. Party girl…Spy.
Kira Constantin feels like she has been half-alive since that one night of partying ended in tragedy. So when her father demands that she go undercover at De Santis Corp as a spy, there’s no way she can refuse. She must redeem herself, even if that means dealing with a boss like of Lorenzo De Santis.
Except neither of them counts on the forbidden heat that flares between them. As Kira and Lorenzo draw closer, spying on him becomes harder and harder. And then Kira discovers that the real villain might be closer to her than she thinks…
As ways I would like to thank NetGalley and St Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book that we could bring you this review.
I don’t know how Jackie Ashenden keeps doing it but with each book I read in this series I hate Mr. De Santi more and more. I loved how Lorenzo is dead set in making sure he exposes his father and gets rid of the power he has over the company. The only problem he has is the spy that they are trying to put in his midsts. The one thing that no one not any of them ever think about or even imagine was that Kira didn’t want to spy on Lorenzo and what he was plotting to do, nor did they think that should would tell him the truth of her being assigned as his intern was for. All they all thought was that Kira would do as she was told by her father since she carried so much guilt in her for what happened in the past. Kira has always had a deep affection for Lorenzo, since in her eyes he is the only person who has ever really seen her and helped her in figuring out how to channel her feelings and excess energy. That is the reason why she choses not to help her father in his plot to figure out what Lorenzo is up to and instead help Lorenzo in his mission.

Linebacker Sam Taylor feels like a ticking time bomb. He left the army with emotional wounds as fresh as the scars on his back. Sam’s been living like a monk, but his best friend, defensive lineman King Ulupoka, wants to get him laid. Easy for him to say. The larger-than-life Samoan is a hard-bodied, tribal-tattooed fantasy. Sam agrees, under one condition: King stays to watch.
ER nurse Jane Foster is done being a good girl, and nothing says wild like picking up two of football’s sexiest players and bringing them back to your hotel room. Trouble is, she can’t decide which one she wants more. Sam is hot, sweet, and vulnerable. Jane’s more than willing to ride him into oblivion. But King’s intense gaze from across the room promises that the best is yet to come.
Sure, King has had his choice of girls and guys in the past. That doesn’t mean he’ll jeopardize his relationship with Sam over a case of locker-room lust—until a naughty nurse pushes them both out of their comfort zones. Seeing Jane and Sam together turns King on more than he ever imagined. If they’re game, he’s ready to tackle a three-way play.
Rookie running back Tom Kelly loves the perks of football stardom. Men, women—there’s no shortage of companionship for a pro athlete who’s hot, young, and willing, and Tom is definitely willing. But deep down he wants a committed three-way relationship, especially if the female in the middle is Carmina de la Cruz. The undeniably sexy Army veteran may not say much, but her body speaks loud and clear.
After a traumatic tour in Afghanistan, Carmina is struggling to regain her speech and rebuild her life. More than anything, she wants to feel like a woman again. Tom may be a wholesome All-American, but he knows just how she needs to be touched—and he’s not the only Rebel who arouses her interest. With his scorching intensity, Tom’s best friend leaves her wondering if two players might be better than one.
Danny Smith is no stranger to his team’s kinky reputation. He gave in to temptation once, but he’s not going down that road again. Sure, Carmina’s curves promise pleasure, but her eyes guarantee it comes with baggage—and Danny has enough of his own. Still, giving up control can feel so good. And when it comes to everything Danny craves, Carmina and Tom make the perfect team.
As always I want to thank Random House Loveswept and Netgalley for providing us with a copy of these books so that we could bring you this review.
What can I say other than Samantha Kane and the Rebels have found a way to burn up my kindle once again. These books are both centered around how two Army friends and veterans have dealt with life after the injuries they sustained during an IED. Sam has to learn how to deal with his PTSD and Carmina with the recovery she has had to deal with after her brain injury. So I think its great that between King, Jane, and Tom they are able to help each of them. I don’t include Danny in that one because Tom helps him deal and learn how to recover after the time he has spent angry for what happen to Marian (from the first book). I applaud Samantha Kane’s strength in first not only about writing unconventional relationships but also for topics that many rather not touch. I typically don’t like to read M/M relationships or intimate scenes, but let me tell you this one was fantastic and I didn’t mind reading at all. I love the way that Samantha Kane writes them. Like I said burning up my kindle good.

After dinner with the most arrogant man in the world, Jessica Miller is shocked when her blind date tries to maul her in the parking lot. Enter “Zag”: the brooding, bruising alpha male who jumps off his motorcycle and teaches the jerk a lesson he won’t forget. After getting one taste of a bad boy who lives on the edge, Jessica’s hooked. Zag’s willing to give her the ride of her life. But she needs to wrap her arms around his powerful chest and hold on—tight.
Zag knows firsthand that the True Brothers MC isn’t for the faint of heart. He only intends to show beautiful, innocent Jessica a few cheap thrills to satisfy her curiosity. But the more he lets her in, the more Zag comes to depend on her gentle touch to help heal the wounds that he’s been denying for so long. Now, a rival gang has set its sights on Jessica, and Zag must step up once again. He just hopes he can go the distance to protect the woman he loves.
Every rebel needs a cause—and a woman to believe in. Discover why Heidi McLaughlin raves that “the sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water” in this smoldering novel from the author of Ruthless.
The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
As President of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to protect Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.
With her lowlife father in prison for manslaughter, Nicole Walker keeps her distance from the biker scene—until she meets the stud running security at her best friend’s wedding. “Tank” is big, mean, and trouble from every direction. Yet Nicole can’t take her eyes off his chiseled body, or deny the pure electricity she feels when he returns her gaze. Guys like Tank are supposed to be a one-way ride to heartbreak. So why, after a scorching night in his bed, does Nicole only want more?
From his tour in the Marines to his sister’s disastrous marriage, Tank has seen the worst that life has to offer. Ever since his father’s death, Tank’s been fiercely protective of his family—and the True Brothers have always had his back. But nothing could prepare him for a woman like Nicole, who’s determined to break down the walls around his heart. When violence strikes, placing Nicole in harm’s way, Tank digs deep to find the courage to keep her safe—and the strength to love without limits.

Everyone loves a secret…
Liv Tyner has an ultra-sexy one she’s been keeping all to herself. A sinfully delicious, forbidden secret that has inspired endless fantasy material late into her lonely nights. But when that secret is suddenly staring her in the face—in the form of two fantastically built and wildly successful men—not only does Liv have trouble keeping her one-time-only love triangle under wraps, she also longs for a repeat performance.
Step-brothers Nate Dalton and Tristan Reeves have built a global communications empire that laid the groundwork for their ten-year homecoming to Bayfront. But more important than success is winning the love of the one woman neither has gotten off his mind or out of his system no matter how much time and distance spans between them—sensational and highly addictive Liv Tyner!
As a slow seduction begins and all their juicy secrets are revealed, can these star-crossed lovers find themselves in the right place, at the right time, to make a more permanent love connection?
As always thanks goes first to Netgalley and St. Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Like the title of the book indicates I have become addicted to Calista Fox and her steamy trios. I loved how Nate and Tristen didn’t start off their lives having money, unlike some in Bayfront. They worked for it and have worked hard to achieve the success they have. Even if it was at the expense and risk of losing the woman that they desired deeply. But when they come back to Bayfront they come ready to claim what they want. Liv has always been able to see past the “nerdy” aspects of Tristen and Nate to the sexy men deep inside and has wanted them always. Especially after the one night that they spent together. But Liv is getting ready to start a new chapter in her life and its going to take her away from the men she has always wanted once again. I love the fact that Nate and Tristian were willing to go wherever they needed to to be with Liv. Whether that is staying in Bayfront or going across the world, it showed so much how much they really want to make things work with her once and for all.

I love a good opposites attract romance and Derek and Sam are about as opposite as you can get….on the surface. He’s aloof, not looking for a relationship, keep things simple. She’s warm, kind, and wants the fairy tale, after she makes her mark in the world of dance of course. Yet, both are trying to make it in their perspective fields and are a force to be reckoned with in their own rights. They are both driven and ambitious, they just present it differently.
From the start these two are drawn to each other and their chemistry pops off the pages, especially when there are ropes involved 😉 Those were some of my favorite scenes, btw.
When it comes to Derek and Sam, it’s the push and the pull that I liked. They both stayed true to themselves, while opening up to new experiences.
The supporting characters are just as endearing. Sam’s grandmother will grab your heart, I so need her story!!!
Keeping with the Doms of Washington series, this story isn’t complete without some intrigue and mystery.
Out of all the books, I think Lucky is my favorite so far.

Writing erotic romance is the most fun I’ve ever had. (Well, except for the research.)
Many of my books are set in Washington, DC, where I lived and worked many years, running a public relations firm. In my PR career I’ve been fortunate to encounter or represent some of the city’s powerful insiders. I write, tweet and post under my pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since my clients might be a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. (I’ll never tell.)
Today, I live in Virginia with my husband and furry child. Occasionally I’m separated from my laptop to indulge in dance classes and visit wineries and hiking trails with family and friends. If there were a house fire, I’d grab my dog, laptop and five foot-long, regulation, Sally Rand ostrich feather fans — in that order. (Hubby knows the way out.)
I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, and an ongoing student of fiction writing, as well as avid reader of general fiction and romance, especially the erotic kind.

I need you, Ava.
I am desperate. For you. For a touch. For a kiss. For the scrape of your hand down my stomach. For the slide of your lips across my hipbone. The sweep of your thigh against mine in the dulcet, drowning darkness. For the warm huff of your breath on my skin and the wet suck of your mouth around me and the building pressure of need reaching release…I am mad with need.
Wild with it.
I cannot have you. I have lost you, as I have lost myself.
And so I go in search. Of myself, and thus the man who might return to you, and take you in his arms.
I loathe each of the thousands of miles between us, but I cannot wish them away, for I hope at the end of my journey I shall find you. Or rather, find myself, and thus…you. Myself, and thus us.
I am taking the long way home, Ava.
I’m losing my mind, and I don’t know how to stop it. I shouldn’t be writing to you, but I am. I’m friendless, loveless, and lifeless. You’re out there somewhere, and still you’re all I really have. I hate my reliance and dependence on you, emotionally and otherwise, and that reliance is something I’m coming to recognize. I hate that I can’t hate you as much as I want to. I hate that I still love you so much.
I hate that there’s no clear solution to our conundrum. Even if we could forgive each other, what then?
I hate you, Christian. I really do.
But most of all, I don’t.
Complicatedly (still) yours,
The night I finished this story, I didn’t sleep very well. I couldn’t get Ava and Christian’s story off my mind. I was consumed. I needed more journal entries, more blog posts, more letters…..
The book is written in journal entries, letters, and blog posts. It will put you right in the middle of the turmoil these characters are going through. You pick sides, you hate them both, you love them both, you laugh with them, cry with them, crack open a bottle of wine with them (or 2, don’t judge), grieve with them, want to heal with them, and in the end you are left gutted. Each entry in to their lives will put your emotions through a meat grinder. This book isn’t pretty. It’s ugly, raw, and very very real. I think that’s why I love it so much. Everything isn’t wrapped up in a pretty little bow at the end of 300 pages. The ending is heart stopping and was a twist I never in a million years saw coming.
So grab a ton of tissues, a very large wine glass and a few bottles of wine, and get ready for a book that will shred your emotions and leave you in ruins

Ben Lawson is making a comeback…
After a few tabloid headlines, they think they know me. They don’t know a damn thing. As CEO of a movie production company, I’ll show them who I really am when we hit it big at the box office. My ex thought her smear tactics would ruin me, but I’m unbreakable. Rising from the debris, I swore I’d never let a woman distract me like that again. But then, my leading actress walked on the set and changed everything.
Seductive, sexy, and unapologetic, Aria Rose could break me. I wanted to help her, protect her…love her. Instead, I destroyed her.
Aria Rose is baring it all….
I knew better. I knew not to trust another Hollywood heartthrob with a reputation like his. He was my boss and became my ruin. I should have stayed far away from him. Ben Lawson promised me the world. He even promised me his heart.
But he destroyed everything–my heart, my career, us.
I would like to thank Sarah Robinson, Season Publishing and NetGalley for a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Both Aria and Ben have ex’s that would like nothing more than to see their lives destroyed and their careers end in disaster. But one thing neither of them count on is the fact that Ben is willing to be left with nothing then to see anything bad be done to Aria. I loved the fact that Aria wants to prove that she is a great actress and doesn’t use her family connections to get parts. Also when it comes to Ben I liked that he was working hard to bring something up from nothing. He was willing to take risks and put his own money on the line if need be. They not only prove that they can do it but that they can do it better together.
I give this book 4 kisses…

Lara Ashburn hates bikers. She watched a motorcycle club destroy her hometown, bringing her brother down with it. That’s a life she put far in her rearview. So the last person she wants to see walking into her classroom is the top enforcer of the Devil’s Keepers. Big, mean, and gorgeous, all tattoos and leather, Chaser is everything Lara should avoid. Yet the insane chemistry sparking between them tempts her to break all the rules.
Ryan “Chaser” Frey has his hands full with a teen daughter in need of tough love, and he doesn’t have time for prissy teachers who want to tell him how to raise his kid. But Chaser never could resist a chick who gives as good as she gets. Lara is sexy as hell, and she’s not afraid of him. Plus, her links to a California club could provide the Devils with leverage against their enemies. But that would mean mixing business with pleasure—and risking the one woman Chaser can’t afford to lose.
First and foremost a thank you to Random House Loveswept and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this books that we could bring you this review.
Now while I was already on a MC kick I was happy to sit and read this one. This is the third book in the Devil’s Keepers MC series and one that I was very much anticipating. Lara having come from a town where an MC was the cause of all her issues she is quite weary of MC’s, so it is amazing to see how spending time with Chaser helps change Lara’s opinion of him and his club. Though Chaser is not in any way a sweet easy person to get to know. He is gruff and tough and an all out ass when he first meets Lara, he does start to show her not everything is as it appears. Also we get a little bit more of what is going on within the ranks of the MC and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
