Leather, Lace and Rock-n-Roll was sexy, had great, funny as hell dialogue, hot guys, musicians and SEALS. I think it’s pretty much got all the bases covered.
Sexy Jaydon Hawke is a world class rock star. He’s also an active Navy SEAL. He’s like a super sexy singing James Bond. His profession as a musician allows him and his team to travel the world and infiltrate any situation at will. It was a novel approach and I loved the set up. Using women to get information has become Hawke’s modus operandi and Rachel Newbury is about to be on the receiving end of Hawke’s considerable charm.
Initially suspecting Rachel of being in cahoots with a known terrorist, Hawke’s plan was to get close to Rachel to pump...errr get the information he needs to prove her innocence or guilt. But it soon became evident that Rachel was innocent and Hawke had bitten off more than he can chew when he falls hard for the brainy and beautiful architect, who unlike every other female on planet Earth didn't throw herself at the famous Jaydon Hawke.
There is a great supporting case in Leather, Lace and Rock-n-Roll and in my opinion Cameron Tremaine and Max Sterling actually stole the show. Cameron is Rachel’s best friend and business partner. She is a super little spark plug. Sassy, blonde, built and hell on wheels. She’s like a feisty, little terrier who won’t back down from any challenge or threat. Her interactions with Hawke’s head of security Max Sterling (make that Captain Sterling as in head of the SEAL team) were some of the funniest in the book, super sexually charged and so fun to read. All her nicknames including calling him Mr. Clean and Aladdin (he’s bald) had me giggling. I loved her! I cannot wait to read their story Outspoken Angel. It’s bound to be off the charts sexy and explosive.
This is book has a lot going for it and was highly entertaining. Best of all it was free from Smashwords and MORE than worth it. There are several members of the SEAL team who are sure to get their own stories...and I’ll be reading every one of them. (less)

This is he classic story about a smart girl from the wrong side of the tracks and the star athlete headed for the big league. Their relationship should have been uncomplicated about two young people falling in love but life is seldom predictable and as always choices have consequences.
Little Libby Nobody has caught the attention of "Band-Aid" All-American-Athlete Aidan Palowski. He pursues her with a single-minded determination mostly at first because she’s the one girl on campus who won’t give him the time of day and doesn’t fall at his feet begging for his attention. In fact quite the opposite is true.
Libby is an extremely smart, determined to succeed and an oh so sarcastic young woman. She's quick with the biting comebacks and gives Aidan attitude at every opportunity. She’s certainly not his typical girlfriend material and that’s good because Libby has NO intention of becoming his latest conquest or pay a visit to the “boinking” room with him. Libby’s indifference however doesn’t stop Aidan from doggedly pursuing her. He shows up daily at the library when he knows she‘ll be there or heading to the Waffle House were she works. But Aidan‘s on the fast track to becoming a star pitcher for a MLB team and his long range plans just don‘t include a cutter like Libby. Aidan chose his career over Libby. He had no idea just what he was cutting out of his life.
Of course had Aidan taken the time to really get to know Libby instead of making assumptions about the Waffle House waitress, he may have discovered she had her own big plans for the future. She wasn’t just the little cutter he thought she was.
Everyone’s plans go out the window one night when Libby finally lets her guard down. Some tough, adult, selfless and selfish decisions are made as Libby and Aidan carry on with their lives after graduation.
Since I’ve already started the continuation of the story in Binding Arbitration I would definitely recommending reading Cutters vs. Jocks first. (less)

I am definitely confused by Matt's methods of proclaiming his love for Savannah. Seems he went way over the top and literally kept Savannah up in the air and definitely on the sexual edge. Wow what a crazy contraption they rigged up to sexually arouse and/or torment the girl not to mention all the time and effort to set the scene.
I can't deny that she was the beneficiary of a lot of male loving and attention including toys and many orgasms courtesy of multiple partners.
Seems to me Matt could of just taken her out for a nice dinner and movie if he wanted to pursue a deeper relationship with Savannah since he so obviously loved her? Seems like it would have been a lot less trouble...if not quite as fun for all involved.(less)

Santa Wore Combat Boots is a story about letting go, moving on and allowing yourself to love again. Throw in some cute kids, a smokin' hot fireman neighbor, the spirit of the holidays and it’s a sweet as Christmas cookies little seasonal tale proving that Christmas miracles really do come true.

It reads like any great lawyer show you might watch on TV or see at the movies. In fact it would make a great movie.
I was hooked right from the opening chapter.
A well-loved, Supreme Court Justice Fritz Rayburn is dead and a young 16 year old girl, Hannah Sheraton is in jail accused of his murder.
Josie Baylor-Bates is a great lawyer. She’s an athlete who enjoys a little beach volleyball, has a great no strings attached, mutually satisfying relationship with ex-cop turned PI Archer and a great low stress job at a laid back practice in Hermosa Beach...ahhhh that's the life.
But once upon a time Josie was a big time lawyer, forced into the spotlight when she defended a young woman, a mother of two small children. Josie defended her client so brilliantly that she walked only to later perpetrate the greatest crime a mother could commit. Josie never wanted to be in that position again so she threw in the towel for local small time, small problem law. Until a blast from her college days Linda Rayburn begs and pleads for Josie to defend her innocent daughter, accused of murder...the murder of Judge Rayburn.
The whole case is extremely interesting and complex. Hannah was a disturbed teenage whose metal status I continually questioned. She’s got OCD, cuts herself with razor blades and has been in trouble with the law in the past...basically she's a mess. Did she or didn't she do it?
It’s up to Josie to figure out the truth from the lies. What hidden Rayburn family dynamics are at work? The judge's son Kip, married to Hannah’s mom Linda is poised to assume his father’s seat on the bench. Who's willing to lie to keep the truth hidden? And is a little bit crazy Hannah going to be the scapegoat?
I really enjoyed Hostile Witness. It keep me guessing (even at 90% into the story). Was Hannah really innocent? Was she a consummate master manipulator? Josie was steadfastly in Hannah’s corner, defending her with every lawyer bone in her body when others would have sacrificed her to further their own agenda. Was history going to repeat itself? Was it possible for Josie to be so wrong about someone for a second time?

Jason was like a big, overgrown, playful puppy and totally obsessed with food. Good thing Haley was such a good cook. There were lots of laughs over his continual obsession with keeping his friends and family from getting their hands on her food...or as far as he was concerned - HIS food.
Haley and Jason started out as neighbors who lived beside each other and coworkers but they really never got along. Then slowly their relationship turned to friends with some very intimate and sexy times between them without fully going the whole way.
Playing for Keeps was a fun read and had me smiling, mostly at Jason’s antics. (less)

Seth’s got to be on top of his game and he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve to outwit, outlast and outplay the Succubus Isra who’s inhabited the body of the girl he’s got the hots. It's a dangerous game of kill...or send her back to hell or be killed. Seth's got to resist the allure at all costs because his life is literally on the line.

My interest was piqued and when I discovered A Hidden Fire for free I knew it was a no brainer.
While paranormal and vampires are not generally my preference, I really enjoyed A Hidden Fire and now have all the books in the series.
