I was in the mood for some good ol' romantic suspense. And that's precisely what Dee Tenorio gave me! Though the focus was on the suspense plot, she struck the right amount of balance with the romance by cranking up the sexual tension between Trina and Cade through witty back and forths.
CONVICTED is a sexy and kick-ass read. I loved the chemistry between Cade and Trina, I loved the perfect mix of romance and suspense, I loved the back stories that made me relate to the main couple and I loved the suspense plot with characters that I hated on the spot and was happy to see getting what they deserved.
Memorable Scenes: - the one where Trina talks fave sexual positions > great scene! Gotta love Trina's tenaciousness - the one against the car > talk about hot... - the one in the cabin > can't remember ever reading a sex scene that was hot and so funny with the banter at the same time
Favorite Quotes: He refused to look at her, knowing she was walking naked into his bathroom. Of course she was. Her unending campaign to break his policy on sex with anyone he might have to arrest meant she got to flaunt herself in as many creative ways as she could. She had absolutely no respect for his cock, dammit. If she kept this up, it was going to break off or he was going to stroke out from lack of blood to his brain.
His eyes closed, letting go of everything but the image of Trina in his shower. He sped his stroke, concentrating hard on it to quiet his thoughts. Just the water, her sighs, and the dream that he had something more to offer her than the body of a ghost who didn’t know how to die.
“Hands on the car.” For just a second, she stared. It was all she could do. He stared back, gaze like stone. “Now, Trina.” “You want to role-play?” Not what usually worked for her—she liked hard and fast, thank you very much, but if that was what he needed, she could probably swing the damsel-under-arrest without much trouble. “No,” he growled as she shrugged. “I want you to get your goddamn hands on the car so I don’t have to worry about them while I fuck you blind.”
He was not going to give her the smile she was hunting. He couldn’t allow it.Trina collected his moments of weakness like a kid after baseball cards. Once they were hers, she cashed them in for pieces of his soul. He simply didn’t have enough left to play her games.
“I’m not killing anyone. I’m just going to shoot him several times. If he dies, that’s his fault.”
Damn it, his hands were empty, his fucking sweatpants were strangling him, and those fabulous breasts were covered under the folds of his own shirt. He glared at her. “That was cruel.” She smirked as she tightened her hold on the crisp cotton. “My tits, my rules.” Well, they’d just see what she said when she found out her ass belonged to him.
“You’re not rushing me, not this time. I’ll give you what you want, what we both want, but I’m doing it slow. Careful. If I want to work my way down your legs inch by inch or head up to your breasts, I will. If I want to flip you over and slow ride your ass all the way down to Mexico, I will. And you are going to calm the hell down and let us enjoy it.”
“That’s it? Yes? No explanations, no protestations of innocence?” Trina shrugged. “I think I gave up innocent when I deep throated you.”(less)

SINFUL DECEPTION continues in the same excellent vein the first two books started it all. The main couple is awesome, the writing is captivating, the suspense plot fits right in and it was just as sexy and hot as the other books in this series! This is one of the few series I've read that make me wish they'd make a TV series of it. I'd definitely watch that!
I read 2 books in this series back to back and though the main themes are the same (Border Patrol, ICE, cartels, illegal immigrants and smuggling) in each book, they are all original and never felt the same. The romances are also one-of-a-kind and each couple is unique.
SINFUL DECEPTION starts all cute and sexy with webcamming and pole dancing and then...BAM! Again (like with the other books in this series) Joan Swan took me completely by surprise with the plot by giving it a twist I didn't see coming at all. I loved Marcus and Tova and their story and the shortness (around 120 pages) of the book didn't take away from the story at all. The sexy times were in perfect balance with the suspense plot and I really like Swan's writing style. It's fast-paced, crisp and sexy.
Since there's no next book in this series yet I'm going on the hunt for Joan Swan's (and her alter ego Sky Jordan's) books because I really liked what I read in this series.
Memorable Scenes: - the one against the wall > seriously hot scene there! - the one in the shower > yowza!
Favorite Quotes: “Maybe you could close your shirt while we do this.” She laughed but ignored the suggestion. In fact, she used a little shoulder shimmy to shake the loose blouse farther open. The move also jiggled her breasts beneath the white lace and filled Marcus’s lower body with another flash of fire. “Holy fuck…” Marcus muttered. “If you do that again, I’ll go into brain freeze and won’t be able to fix your camera.”
The pleasure burst at the base of his spine, shooting fire through his hips, his chest, his limbs…until even his hair tingled with it. He couldn’t hold back the sounds that rolled from him, deep, throaty, intense sounds of pleasure. And the electricity continued to hum through his veins for long moments afterward while they slumped together, nothing keeping them up but his body weight crushing her to the wall.
Tova’s mind emptied of everything but him. She wrapped her arms around him, curved her body into his, and opened her mouth. Let him take. And take. And take. Reveled in being so completely wanted. So thoroughly devoured. No one had ever kissed her like this. No one had ever wanted her so completely, so deeply.
“Yes…” The pitch of her voice rose, grew tight, “Jesus… Mar—” She cried out. Her hips jerked against his mouth, and Marcus closed his eyes with the delirium of her, held her steady, and ate at her, absorbing her tremors, her heat, her flavor, until her motions melted into shivers.

3,75 stars All the time I was reading the first chapter(s) I felt like I was missing out on something, some information to explain why Alice didn't panic at the fact that a stranger was passed out in her living room, a famous stranger but still a stranger. To explain the connection to and responsability for Holden she felt from the very beginning. I didn't understand that instant connection Alice felt to Holden. A connection that even had her contemplating telling him her real name. She never once questioned his appearance in her house and I found that strange.
Reading this book I felt like I was missing some sort of inside information. Why did Alice accept Holden being in her house like that? What happened to her in her past? I got a satisfying answer to that last question but the first still remains a mystery to me. I just couldn't click with the romance as it didn't make sense to my logical mind. Also, I missed Holden's POV. It was so absent it felt like the book could have been written and would have worked in first person as well.
Despite my confusion about the story, I did enjoy this book and that was because of Stein's writing. It has this captivating and mesmerizing quality to it that just kept me reading and kept pulling me back to the book even when I wasn't reading it. Her writing makes you feel the feelings her characters are going through and that was quite a feat in this book as I rationally didn't understand where their feelings were coming from but emotionally I revelled in them nonetheless.
Memorable Scene: - the one with the bathtub > beautifully written scene
Favorite Quote: “What are you thinking of?” She wished he hadn’t whispered that. His whisper was even better in person than it was in the movies—sort of husky, with a hint of sensuousness that didn’t really fit this situation. She was just cutting him out of a damn coat, for God’s sake.(less)

It's been a while since I read BEYOND CONTROL and BEYOND DENIAL, as good as it was, was just a minor blip on the Beyond radar. But from the first few words it was like I finished the previous book only yesterday instead of 5 months ago. I was thrown back into this amazing world of eroticism, toughness and rawness I've come to crave with this series.
I loved the main couple of this book!. They were so good together, so broken together and so beautiful in finding solace, belonging, love and passion in each other. In Six I felt her longing and craving for safety and to belong. And then Bren, Brendan Donnelly, the name alone made me swoon... In Bren I saw the quite strength and his craving for physical pain to dull the emotional pain.
But it wasn’t just Bren and Six, it was the plot written around their romance that was so intricately interlaced with it. It was the other characters, main characters from the two previous books but also main characters whose books are yet to come. All these characters are larger than life and yet they only complemented Six and Bren and their story. They never overshadowed the couple that was supposed to star in this book and I loved that! It was the expanding of the world created in the first two books with new information and new characters. It was the filthy-dirty, oh-so-awesome sex scenes that will ruin your panties. And it was everything combined. I have no words for how much I loved this book and how much I love this series!
This series is one of the few erotic romance series where the books mesmerize me so profoundly I'm lost in them and completely oblivious to my surroundings or time. When I read the Beyond books I'm right there, in the Sectors, in the Broken Circle, in the warehouse, in the garage. I’m there with the characters, feeling what they are feeling, being angry and sad on their behalf, being aroused to the point of overheating at their dirty, dirty way of loving each other.
BEYOND PAIN is another amazing installment in this series that has taken hold of my heart. If you would have told me 6 months ago that I was going to enjoy reading an erotic romance series set in a dystopian world, with love scenes that consist of multiple partners who are all not in a committed relationship together, with female on female and male on male sexiness, I’d have laughed in your face. And yet here I am, confessing that this is one of my very favorite erotic romance series because it is written in a way that it just works for me. Despite the dystopian world, a world I have grown to love. Despite the f/f and m/m sex because it belongs in that world, a world that just wouldn’t be right without it and the books wouldn’t be so amazing without it. Kudos to Kit Rocha for accomplishing this feat very few authors can.
Now bring me BEYOND JEALOUSY because, man…I cannot wait for that story to unfold!
And those of you who love erotic romance and haven’t read this series yet, what the F are you waiting for? Go. Buy. Now. Run!
Fave Scenes: - Bren and Six at Cruz and Trix's celebration party > OMG, the build-up is off the charts! - the scene with Lex, Rachel, Dallas, Six and Bren after the cage fight with Elvis > Am I still breathing? That was beyond hot in so many ways! - Ace flogging Bren > OMG OMG OMG, that's all…
[Bren]“You've had a lot of kids come through here. How broken is too broken? How do you know what you can't fix?" Coop didn't answer right away. He twisted the beer bottle in his hand, staring at the label as he picked away at the edge. "No one's too broken. But you can't fix a damn thing. All you can do is figure out which ones want to fix themselves, then give them the tools to get the job done.”
Her heart pounded as the full import of his words slipped through her. The precarious balance of their relationship had tilted. He'd given her the power to ask for more, had painted a magical picture with deceptively innocent words.
The sudden burn in her chest scared her. It wasn't arousal, but something far more insidious, more dangerous. Affection, digging hooks into the painful scars on her heart, and she had to laugh it off to keep from flinging his hand away and bolting.
His loose pants rode low on his hips. She traced her fingertips above the waistband, reveling in the way his muscles tensed under her touch. This had to be the way the O'Kane women felt when they were on their knees, smug and drunk on the power of watching big tough men pretend they were issuing orders instead of begging.
She'd suck him all night if it meant listening to careful, perfectly controlled Brendan Donnelly rasp out crude commands that made his voice shake. Each groan gave her power, even as it hollowed her out. She was wet and aching, half hoping he'd put his fingers in her and get her off.
This was what she'd never known enough to crave before, the thing the O'Kanes exchanged as casually as words. Affection and warmth, the quiet sensual pleasure of warm skin and his hand in her hair. She could rub her cheek against Bren's chest and close her eyes, and every touch would be a reminder that she wasn't alone.
Orgasm didn't slam into her. It built in slow motion, the promise of it hanging sweet in the air as she clenched in anticipation. Then Bren groaned, and she knew she was squeezing him again, but she needed more than the slick sound of him plunging into her and their panting breaths. She needed that voice, stripped of its bland control, growling obscenities about the things he'd do to her.
“You don't want to own my body," she said, the words hesitant, almost a question. "You want me to give it to you, every damn time." The expression of gentle wonder made his dick ache. "Every time." "Because it belongs to me." She scratched him, streaking gentle lines of pain in her wake. "It's mine." "Yours." He pulled open the button and the zipper on her pants and urged the fabric down, off her ass. "Give it to me." "Tell me what you're gonna do with it," she challenged. "It better be dirty. It better be filthy.”
If the party room was expansive debauchery, this room was...distilled. The hard liquor of fucking. Sin on the rocks.

He was almost blown up by a suicide bomber which turned him into a war hero and his injury led him to permanently resigning from active duty. His shitty chilhood with an addict for a mother and his past mistakes made him into the hotheaded and guilt-ridden man.
Daniel and Hope were high school sweethearts until Daniel put her life in danger and wanted nothing to do with her anymore after she got engaged to someone else while he was in military bootcamp. At least that's what they both have been led to believe.
Hope Walker is a psychologist at a women's shelter. Danny was her first love and now when she's in need of protection because of a mob hit put out on her he returns into her life. Hope is stubborn and compassionate and believes in the good she does with her shelter. I found Danny's reaction to Hope's place of work a bit excessive. I understood his aversion to shelters but to me it was too easily used as the trigger for the conflict between Danny and Hope. To be honest I thought he was being unreasonable about it and didn't get why he was so upset and ready to put all the blame on himself and make it all about him without getting all the facts first. Hope is actually trying to make sure kids under her care don't have to suffer what he went through.
I love it when I try a new-to-me author, start reading and before I know it I'm halfway through the book. This is what happened to me with Ann Mayburn's GUARDING HOPE. I answered to a call for reviewers for this book because when I read the premise, blurb and an excerpt I felt this would be a book I'd like. And I really did. Not in the least because of Mayburn's agreeable and crisp writing. Her voice and style are perfectly suited for this I/R romantic suspense with a reunion romance trope. Once I started reading I couldn't stop and whenever I had to (pesky EDJ) I couldn't wait to get back to it.
In romantic suspense it's hard to find the balance between the romance and the suspense plot but Ann Mayburn nailed it. And on top of that she writes amazingly sexy love scenes. Explicit and laced with primal need they are exactly the sex scenes I love to read. I loved the dynamics and dialogues between Danny and his friends, Boden and Omar. Despite the trashtalking that they use as a coping mechanism you feel they would go through hell and back for each other. I look forward to the stories of these friends and hope they have their own books in the future.
In short: this first encounter with Ann Mayburn's writing was a big success and I have another author to add to my ever-growing favorites list.
Fave Scene: - the guys doing tequila shots with hot sauce in it > priceless! What a way to introduce your hero and his friends - the escape from Hope's house > I didn't realize I was holding my breath until I finished the scene! - the shower scene at the safe house > holy smokes that was hot! - the scene with Rebecca and Danny > so sweet! Kids in romance novels are my weakness
Fave Quotes: Well, that settled it. She was an idiot, a masochistic fool who couldn’t wait to throw her heart back into the emotional food processor that was Danny.
She stopped so abruptly he ran into her, then stumbled back just as quickly. After glancing up and down the hall to make sure no one was around, she poked a finger into his chest. “Look, you don’t want to be here and I don’t want you here, but if you say or do one damned thing to upset anyone here, I swear to god, I will rip your balls off and shove them up your nose.”
Hope crawled over to Boden and a bright wave of relief washed through him as he reaffirmed that she was alive and in once piece. She placed her hand on his cheek. “Open your eyes, pretty boy. I want to see those baby blues.” Boden smiled and said in a weak voice, “Only if you show me your tits.” Hope gave a startled laugh and leaned back. “I thought you were dying. You survive this and I’ll find someone to show you their tits. I’m afraid if I did it Danny would shoot you.”(less)

Jeremy is Native American, younger than Tess and a dirty talker?... I'm sold! I loved this book and not only because of Jeremy. I also loved Tess. These two characters made appearances in the other two books of the trilogy and I immediately took a liking to them . In a limited page-count Kate Davies brought me an enjoyable and well-rounded character-driven story.
Of course, there will be complaints of it being too short for character-development or that the conflict was rushed but I thought it was all nicely tackled. Clean, crisp and without being over-dramatic Kate Davies handled the issues her characters had. I loved the romance and the story was, at the very least thanks to Jeremy’s dirty talk, super sexy. I liked how the conflict was solved as well.
I’d been looking forward to this story since I read the first story of this trilogy and it didn't disappoint! As expected LIFE OF THE PARTY turned out to be my favorite of the three books!
Favorite Scenes: - the pool table scene followed by the foreplay scene at Jeremy's apartment > so sexy and hot - the coat closet scene > this scene was hinted at in the other two books, I was really curious about where Jeremy and Taylor snuck off to and what they did and I'm happy to say it exceeded my expectations

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The premise was super enticing and the author delivered on it too. I loved everything about this book. The characters, the romance, the setting, everything. I especially loved the humor in the main characters and how it was counterbalanced with some heavy emotional stuff. I also loved how well-suited Taylor and Luca were. They had a lot in common but dealt with their respective issues that were alike in their own way, in a manner befitting their personalities. I loved Luca's impulsiveness and his "I don't give a shit" attitude. And I enjoyed seeing him, playboy king of the one night stands fall for Taylor. What I loved about Taylor were her witty and fun inner thoughts.
Sarah Morgan never disappoints! With AN INVITATION TO SIN she had me glued to the pages from the very first sentence till the last word and proves all those Harlequin Presents nay-sayers wrong! If you know my reading preferences you’ll know I like my books HOT, the hotter the better, and DIRTY, the dirtier the better. Harlequin Presents usually aren’t dirty hot and AN INVITATION TO SIN wasn’t that either, and yet it made me feel the same way my dirty hot books do. Sarah Morgan’s writing has something about it that pulls you in and keeps your attention and don’t leave you wanting more because it gives you all you want, even when there are no explicit dirty sex scenes.
Favorite Scene: - the scene at the opera > beautifully written, very sexy without any real explicitness it was an amazing scene
Favorite Quotes: She couldn’t keep this up for much longer. She was going to punch someone, split her dress and end up naked.
‘I’ve got moves that would make you weep.’ ‘I’m sure you make women weep a lot, but I’m not a crier.’ ‘I like you more and more. You could bathe naked in the fountain.’ He reached for the chilled bottle of champagne. ‘Or I could roll this over your skin.’ Her skin was prickling with the heat and she made a sound that was half laugh, half groan. ‘Now you’re torturing me. Talk about something else, before I melt.’
‘I thought you were trying to prove to the board you’re responsible?’ ‘I’ll use a condom. Does that count?’
Turning towards her, he leaned his forehead against hers and smiled that smile that made women forget how to put one leg in front of the other to walk away.
‘We won’t be expending more energy. This was a one-time thing. We’re going to forget this happened.’ He should have been relieved to hear that from a woman. The fact that he wasn’t surprised him. ‘Fine by me. But any time you want me to make you moan again, just tap me on the shoulder. My skills are at your disposal.’
‘Bene. In that case I take you, Taylor Carmichael, to have and to hold, to sin and misbehave with until too much hot sex doth leave us breathless and knackered. How does that sound to you?’ (less)
The reason I desperately wanted to read this book wasn't because of the cover, though it's a fabulously genius cover, it was because of...moreAwesomeness!!!
The reason I desperately wanted to read this book wasn't because of the cover, though it's a fabulously genius cover, it was because of the title! I unashamedly confess to being a dirty-talk junkie and when a title includes any form or the combination of the words dirty and talk, I'm a goner!
So back to the book. The title set a pretty high expectation prescedent and I hoped it would meet my expectation. When I started I immediately knew I wouldn't have to worry about it. Though it wasn't the filthy dirty I usually prefer it definitely was a sexy read.
The IM conversation and the start of the relationship reminded a lot of how I met my hubby (yes we met through internet) and I was instantly smitten with Jackie Ashenden's humorous, agreeable voice and her main characters.
I loved Christie! She made it onto my fave heroines list with her witty humor, her straightforwardness and her down-to-earth look on life. She's also has bouts of self-doubt caused by her inconsiderate awful family, especially her mother, but it never got all woe-is-me and I loved that about her.
Joseph was yummy. Period. He's blunt and bossy in a sexy way and he knows and acknowledges his flaws. He has ADHD issues but doesn't let that impede him in his going after what he wants, whether in business or pursuing his attraction to Christie.
Both main characters had their flaws, they certainly weren't perfect and ironically that's what made them perfect in my eyes, because I adore flawed characters especialwhen they are well-written, show their vulnerability and I can relate to them in many ways.
One thing puzzled me a bit: Joseph "met" Christie in an online game forum on one of his employees's computer and chatted with her a second time using said employee's handle...Later in the story Joseph has created a profile of his own but I kept wondering about how he did it the second time as the employee had returned to his computer.
I think I liked this book so much because it touched so many aspects of my own life. Not literally of course, it's fiction after all, but it had more parallels than any other contemporary romance I've ever read. This made me very partial to this story and its author.
I also beyond loved the humor in this book. Jackie Ashenden has a very humorous voice laced with a lot of dry wit and I've said it before and will say it again: humor gets me every time! Combine it with sexy and sensuous and I'm a fan for life! I'm so glad I requested this book in exchange for a review. So! Glad! It has made my 2013 favorites for sure!
Fave Scene: - the interview > awesome turn of events scene - Joseph's big grovel > so good! LOVED!!
Fave Quotes: Being at home watching TV or reading a good book was much more interesting than the endless round of socializing Marisa seemed to do.
Sex with Greg [note from reviewer: ex-boyfriend] had been...well, comparing that with her experience with Joseph was like comparing an original master to a copy painted by apes and then photocopied one million times.
Joseph sat back in his seat, composed. As if he hadn't delivered the kind of kiss that made a stone curl its toes. If a stone had toes. (less)

My Review: A world-renowned plastic surgeon and a roller derby girl/barista. This can only be lead to an awesome romance story, right?
I met Jared in THE REBOUND GIRL, book 1 of the series, as the jackass ex of the heroine. Admittedly I didn't really like Jared at first when he first appeared in that book but by the time I got to the end Jared had redeemed himself quite a bit and I was looking forward to his book. Through the grapevine (aka Twitter) I learned his heroine was going to be a roller-skating girl and this spiked my interest even more.
Jared is authoritative, self-deprecating and a little smug. Gretchen is frank and direct. I adore how the characters Tamara Morgan writes are flawed and far from perfect and how they embrace that while finding love. They make them perfect in my eyes and I love them so much more than those characters who are seemingly perfect and flawless. The flaws and imperfection of Morgan’s characters make them characters I can relate to and empathize with and it is the best way to engage my full attention.
I love Tamara Morgan's writing and her heroines and with THE DERBY GIRL she spoiled me with writing that put a smile on my face from page 1 and a heroine that was once again made of awesomeness. Gretchen was witty and outspoken but beneath her tough exterior she uses as an armor, both in behavior and appearance, there is vulnerability and a hint of insecurity she manages to mask with sharp humor and a healthy amount of brawn.
Both Jared and Gretchen use their outward appearance and/or demeanor to battle disapproval from others. THE DERBY GIRL is all about acceptance, for both Jared and Gretchen. And Tamara Morgan did a great job of showing that in the characters through their actions, POVs and back-stories and the romance. I've found that her books are very character-driven. Which is something I love. In THE DERBY GIRL there are a few plotlines but even there they serve the character development more than they are actual plots.
I really loved this second book in the series and I can’t wait to see what great characters has in store for me next in this series! I have a suspicion but Tamara Morgan has been known to surprise me so I’m not speculating much and will just wait and see. In the contemporary romance part of my (digital) shelves, Tamara Morgan and this series take top spot.
Fave Scenes: - The lecture at the community college > awesome scene and prime example of Morgan's writing skills. Oh and the aftermath was very sexy - the date at the derby game, up till and including the bathroom scene > I'm repeating myself but see my remarks at the previous fave scene :) - Jared's declaration of love > I was smiling through my tears
Despite him driving a ridiculous car, his face was one Gretchen knew well. Dreamed of often. Occasionally fantasized about licking. But only occasionally. And always under the most sanitary of conditions.
She laughed. “That’s sweet, but you can go ahead and stop acting like you’ve just discovered your dick and won’t stop until the whole world has admired it with you.”
Her friend Caitlyn called him a panty disintegrator. One strong look, and satiny undergarments all but combusted on the spot, flung themselves at the nearest unsuspecting passerby. Good thing Gretchen’s undergarments were made of sterner stuff. She had specialty no-ride hotpants—a staple of roller derby girls everywhere. Those suckers didn’t move without express permission from the owner first.
Ill-fitting swimsuits with untamed pubic hair creeping out the seams had a way of equalizing people.
Sensation crashed around him, her lips the center of the storm. He could have remained like that for hours, exploring the little jolts of pleasure that erupted at every tiny movement of her tongue against his.
His hands gripped her thighs tightly. “Woman, don’t you know that the only words coming out of your mouth when you’re half-naked and spread wide open are yes, more and, if you’re so inclined, fill me, you beast?”
“There isn’t any chance your grandmother is about to come home and tell us to get off her lawn, is there?” Jared asked, pulling back to give them time to breathe. It was a good thing too, as Gretchen had somehow forgotten the most basic of human needs as she reveled in the soft, sweet depth of him.
