He even knows who he wants to settle down with - sexy single mom Ginger Paulson. The problem is Ginger's eight year old son Hayden is Kane's Little Buddy and he is not supposed to have a relationship with a mom in the program that connects father-less young boys with an adult male mentor.
Ginger slips and falls down a flight of stairs, causing a hurt shoulder and ankle. Kane volunteers to help her with Hayden and her wheelchair bound father while she recovers, despite her reluctance to rely on anyone else. Once Ginger has sexy cowboy Kane within arms reach, she finally gets the courage to let him know she wants him and has for some time. Kane can't resist finally getting to have Ginger where he wants her - in bed nekkid with him in control. They have to take things easy at first because of her injuries but once she heals, Kane takes command with no holds barred. Let's just say Kane has rope and knows how to use it.
Kane and Ginger's sexual chemistry is combustible but he wants more than just sex. He suggests they keep their relationship quiet at first because of Hayden and the Little Buddy program. However, Kane embarks on a campaign to win Ginger for his own with all of his sexy cowboy charm and his skillful silver tongue.
Kane and Ginger's story was hot, sexy and sweet! Kane was such a wonderful man, he helped Ginger with her son and father and basically just tried to take care of her since she was always taking care of everyone but herself. Plus he was dominant and very sexy during their love scenes. Kane admired Ginger's strength instead of being threatened by it, he appreciated the way she cared for her son and father. He was a little self-conscious of his lack of education compared to Ginger's job as a lawyer but she convinces him that she thinks the world of the caring man he is and stuff like that doesn't matter. Ginger was an admirable person, she worked hard to be a good mom and daughter. She admires Kane and appreciates him for the caring man he is today and doesn't judge him based on his past the way some do.
As you can tell, I loved the story and though Kane was an amazing hero. He and Ginger make a great couple, I really enjoyed seeing them find love together since they were both lonely. Kane was also wonderful with her son and father, he will be a great Dad. Raising Kane was a sexy, sweet, hot and emotional entry into this great series.
There is no M/M or ménage in this book. It does contain hot nekkid mattress dancing, oral scenes in the shower and various other places, a little bondage and anal plus some light spanking just to liven things up. (less)

Mild BDSM, nothing too crazy beyond some tying up, a bit of spanking and some hijinks in the woods while tied to a tree (sign me up for a screaming orgasm too please). Oh yeah, there was a public nookie scene at a "club".
I enjoyed the author's writing style and plan on checking out her other work. No ménage was included for those who are not a fan of the heroine sandwich.(less)

This book was a very well-written sexy read that really drew me into the characters and their story plus delivered some very hot sex scenes.
Bailey is an independent woman who knows what she wants in life - and what she wants right now is some hot sex but she isn't satisfied with the brawny self-centered men she normally dates. So she decides she should have sex with her friend Sebastian because he is totally different than her normal men - loyal, kind of quiet and a good guy. Sebastian was attracted to Bailey but only treated her as a friend because that seemed to be best for them. When she tells him her plan for them to be fuck buddies, he is less than pleased. He doesn't appreciate the casual way she wants to use him plus he doesn't think she can handle the way he is in the bedroom - a dominant man who likes to spank and occasionally tie up his lover. So he teases Bailey to the point where she is about to get off - then leaves her hanging. She is pissed but very intrigued by this new side of Bastian.
Bastian gets Cat to invite Bailey to a local club so she can see what he likes in the bedroom. In a private room, along with Cat and Mason, Sebastian sits with Bailey as they watch another couple do what he likes in the bedroom - a little spanking then some fun. Bailey is surprised by how much she enjoys watching it and is even more suprised to look over and see Mason and Cat having a little fun too. Things get hot and heavy between Bastian and Bailey, but the intensity of the love making scared Bailey so she doesn't talk to him for a few days since she has a tendency to run from emotions she can't handle.
Sebastian and Bailey start to work out a relationship of sorts that centers on their intense attraction for each other. Sebastian loves to control in the bedroom but he never takes it too far and he is always making sure Bailey is comfortable. Bailey is one hilarious strong woman so she can take whatever Bastian dishes out, usually with a funny quip back at him. She can accept his spanking and dominance in the bedroom but she has a big problem with him trying to have a deeper relationship with her. Bastian has intense feelings for Bailey but can she overcome a lifelong fear of relationships and dependence on a man in time to accept the love Bastian has for her?
This story was wonderful! I was laughing at times and needing a class of ice cubes at others. The relationship between Bastian and Bailey was very believable and well-written. Bailey's fear of relationships was a result of seeing her mother go through four marriages while using men to fund her lifestyle, so I can understand her reluctance to accept money from Bastian and her fear of admiting her feelings even to herself. Bastian was one of those quiet strong men who has a hidden kinky side that made him want to spank Bailey and screw the heck out of her. He was very skilled with his mouth and not at all selfish, so I can understand Bailey's intense pleasure at his hands. The spanking and dominance did not go too far, he mostly just uses his hand and a little bit of tying up. Bastian was very sweet with Bailey, he tried to be sensitive to her needs and feelings but he also knew he would have to push her a little bit so she didn't treat him as casually as she did her other boyfriends. He did one or two dumb things that pissed Bailey off but he honestly was just being a guy and they can't really help it, right? One thing about the story that is just not a big deal and I am glad - Bailey is African-American and Sebastian is white but it is never a big deal. Bastian justs sees her as an incredibly sexy woman.
Overall, I really ejoyed this story. It was emotional, sweet, funny and sexy as hell at times. This story includes some spanking, a little bit of bondage, two couples doing it in the same room (so voyarism but no touching by the other couple - do you think Mason or Bastian would share?), anal, a toy and one hilarious scene where Bailey accidently walks in on Bastian's lawyer co-worker getting a blow job and she notices that he has the biggest dick she ever saw (they don't call him Big Phil for nothing). Highly recommended but read Maverick's Black Cat by Lena Matthews and Maggie Casper first - both are hot, wonderful reads!(less)

Jack and Keely were a great couple who liked to fight sometimes and they definitely heated up the sheets in the bedroom. There was a lot of emotion in the book as they work their way from hate to lust then love. There were a lot of funny scenes and lines that made me crack up. The emotional end even made me tear up a bit too. Another amazing story in this great series!

The story had a great mix of smoking hot love scenes and emotions. I think those of us who are married or in a relationship can relate to some of the communication issues in the book, so it's nice to see a couple work through their problems and come out a stronger couple. I really enjoyed this one!

Maverick was a man who loved to be in control and knew that he found someone special in Black Cat. They meet at an internet chat room when Catarena aka "Black Cat" is trying to research BDSM for an erotic novel she is writing. He used to be into the lifestyle and is intrigued by Black Cat. They set up times to "meet" online so she can learn more about the lifestyle. They have some hot and heavy sessions as Maverick teaches her about giving up control. Maverick sends her a web cam so they can see each other because he really wants to meet her. Catarina flips out when she recongnizes her boss in the camera and cuts off all contact with him.
Maverick aka Mason Broderick becomes obsessed with finding the girl he knows as Black Cat because he thinks they have something special together. Catarena has to deliver his mail at work sometimes, which is how he finally recognizes her after searching frantically for a week. Wow was that a hot scene in his office!
The love scenes and tension were scorching in this book. I thought Maverick was very hot in spite (because?) of his tendency to control. I enjoyed Mason and Catarena's story, though I wouldn't have minded a few more love scenes after they find each other. Great book!(less)

Sweet romance. Nice heroine who was fun. Oh yeah, and a temporary menage. Hero and heroine ride off into the sunset together - alone.
Okay, I really enjoyed this book. The love scenes were hot and the story was good - I really felt like I was riding the rodeo circuit with them. Colby was one hot, sexy cowboy! He can call me "sug" anyday. I enjoyed reading this, the story was well-written, the cowboys were authentic and sexy and the love scenes were smoking!(less)
