Hotness Rating 3 out of 5
I have pretty much gotten away from reading shifter romance. This book made me regret that decision and miss the hot alpha world of a wolf pack. I loved Kristof and Trudy!
Kristoff suspects a member of their trusted pack is embezzling from them. With no other choice he hires an outside human accountant to go through the records and confirm his worst fear. What follows is a series of horrific events that throws Kristoff right into Trudy's life. He vows to keep her safe, even from himself. This proves to be harder than he thought considering Trudy is his soul-mate.
I loved Trudy! The strength and resilience she showed in the face of all that was happening around her was so fun to read. I love when an author doesn't create unnecessary drama and lets the story speak for itself. Kudos, Ms. Griffin. I can't wait to read more on this pack and the hot brothers of Dark Wolf Enterprises.
Building Bridges by Amy Ruttan
Hotness Rating 3 out of 5
Building Bridges is a story of facing your fears and chasing your dreams. In William and Molly's story we get both ends of that spectrum.
William chased his dream only to find it more than he had bargained for. Who says you can't go home, again? He made his mark and now he's back to his roots and basing his future on the ranch that his grandpa left him.
Molly trusted her heart to the wrong guy and learned the hard way to never trust a man. Sadly, that experience has scared her away from putting herself out there for anything including her dream to become a vet.
Although, the story between William and Molly was sweet there were times I didn't feel a true connection between the couple. That is until they took their clothes off. Then the air crackled with the sizzle between these two. Overall, I enjoyed this story and would give this author another read.

A Cowboy's Seduction by Cynthia D'Alba
Hotness Rating 3.5 out of 5
A Cowboy's Seduction is a fabulous, hot & spicy summer read. On second thought, it would make a great winter read, as well. Sure to warm you up.
Natalie Diamond is tired of the cold and snow. Thank goodness she'll be leaving soon to visit her parents in Florida for the Christmas holiday. At least that was her plans until she gets a call from her mom saying they are going on a once-in-a-lifetime cruise, but not to worry her gift is in the mail. That gift just happens to be an all expense paid trip to a Carribean Island.
Brock Wade lost his parents way too young leaving the ranch and the care of his siblings square on his shoulders. All work and no play is all he's known for longer than he cares to admit. But, when his brothers and sister give him an already booked and paid for Carribean vacation Brock isn't sure he can accept it. He can't leave the ranch. However, his brothers convince him none too gently that they can cover for him while he's gone.
When Brock and Natalie meet on their exclusive vacation sparks fly. The connection between this couple is as heartwarming as it is hot! I loved the Wade siblings and would love to read more about them. Hint-hint, Ms. D'Alba.
Born To Sin by Danica Avet
Hotness Rating 4 out of 5
Born To Sin is my first read by Danica Avet and I can honestly say she has a fan for life. I seriously want to go out and buy any title I can find that was written by this author. If you love a sizzling hot story with an equally alpha, hot guy then this is the book for you.
Sinclair "Sin" Rivas does not do relationships which is why he has kept his distance from the super tempting mechanic that works with him. She's the closest thing he has to a real friend and the thought of losing that just because he can't control himself doesn't sit well.
Taylor Guillory is one of the guys. She always has been and is comfortable with that distinction. But, she's had it with lusting after the infamously sexy Sin Rivas and she's got a plan to go after him. Yes, there is a chance it could ruin their friendship, but she's willing to take that chance for one night of passion. She just secretly hopes she can have it all.
I can not believe how much heat and emotion was packed into this short story. The characters were well developed, the background and story was so well written, and the dialogue was fun! And did I mention the sex was smoking hot?
I definitely recommend this book to anyone that loves a hot read with a great story and even better characters.
The Sound Of Your Name by Felice Fox
Hotness Rating 3 out of 5
The Sound Of Your Name is best if read after Hold Me Together (Cameron Ranch #1). Although, you can read it alone it left me a little confused and floundering in parts. I think my rating and enjoyment level would have been much higher if read in order.
Brody Cameron wants nothing more than to help save the family ranch. Sadly, he's been in a slump and hasn't ridden a bull in far too long. That is until he meets his little good luck charm. The problem is he wants more than their little quickies, but he doesn't want to risk the riding streak he has going on.
Ellie doesn't like fooling those around her, especially now that she's starting to really feel like a part of the crowd. But, she has to continue hiding her identity to get the story she needs for the city magazine she works for. Now, she has even more at stake. She's done the unthinkable and lost her heart to a cowboy.
I found the instant acceptance of being used odd. Ellie was supposed to be a worldy, city girl. Yet, she had no problem with the arrangement. It just didn't work for me. I liked the secondary characters a lot and would probably give more books in this series a chance. But, I would read the first book before.
Beneath The Pages by Jennifer Kacey
Hotness Rating 4 out of 5
Holy Hannah, this book is hot! Hot with a capital HOT! I would love to have read more of this story, but I'm not positive my Kindle wouldn't melt, so maybe it's a good thing it was a short story. This book has it all - a hot, alpha hero and 2 equally hot and sexy bodyguards that are perfectly happy to join in.
Acacia is used to living amongst the rich and famous. She's done it her whole life. And now that her beloved father has died she has inherited the magazine and will continue on with the life she has been trained to live. She enjoys her life for the most part, even if it does get the best of her at times. Tonight is one of those nights. Her house is filled with the rich and famous and she's just too tired to deal with the fake smiles and small talk. Even worse, she is on edge scared he'll show up. Or maybe scared that he won't.
Radigan is used to the world bending to his will. It's kind of a side effect of fame. He can have what he wants, when he wants it and he uses that to his advantage a lot! One night is he what he gives and then he moves on to the buffet of women that flock to him. That's always worked for him until one night with Acacia. He hasn't been able to get her off his mind ever since. He's a man that knows what he wants and isn't afraid to act on it. Now that he's set his mind to making Acacia his she doesn't stand a chance.
The characters in this book were more than just hot. They were well-written and enjoyable. I will definitely be reading more books by this author.

Hotness Rating 4 out of 5
Mister Black, aka Sebastian Quinn is hot! I mean sizzling, panties melting hot! This story is a must read and I can't wait to read the rest of the In The Shadows series. The only reason I gave this story 4.5 stars instead of 5 is because it started out just a bit slow and confusing. I get this was important to build up the intrigue, but it put me off just a little bit. It quickly got past this awkward stage and slipped right into fabulous! You will not regret reading this story!
Talia is running from her past, but it continues to haunt her. One of the few good memories she actually has from being a child was when a kind older teen boy saved her. He's never left her mind, though and 8 years later he's her biggest fantasy. She was only 13 at the time and they never exchanged names, so she knows they'll never cross paths, again. At least, that's always been her assumption until she runs into a mysteriously sexy guy at a costume party.
Sebastian's the illegitimate son, but that doesn't stop him from being protective and loving to his sister. Home on leave Sebastian spends as much time as he can with his sister hoping to help her heal from the recent trauma she's gone through. The horrific event that she'll give no one any details about. So when Sebastian finds the intriguing "Scarlet" sneaking through his sister's home he needs to find out more. He quickly unearths the truth that she is there to try to get the story of the events from Mina for the college paper. A story that could launch her career as soon as she graduates.
The connection that Sebastian and Talia have is palpable from the very beginning. I could not get enough of these two characters. Seriously, it was almost torture to read knowing that it would be over soon. Normally, I don't like a story that leaves me hanging, but these characters sucked me in and now I'm hooked. Please, please, please Ms. Michelle write fast because I need (and I mean need) to know what happens next.

Sabrina York has done it again and she has done it in a huge way. Defiant is the 5th book of the Noble Passions series and in contention for my favorite. Just the fact that she has made me love regency historical is a feat in itself and she has done that and then some.
Ned has sowed his wild oats to the point that his family can't take it anymore. Rather than watch him to continue down his wild path his brother, the Duke, is sending him to the Continent for "seasoning". Ned can't imagine anything worse than being sent away. But, then again, he has lived worse. He and his family were penniless and homeless until Edward took them in. That alone is the reason that he can't have the only woman he has ever loved.
Sophia's brother Ewan has sacrificed his whole life, so that when she reached the age to marry she could have her pick of anyone she wanted. The problem is she doesn't want the royal, high society, dandy men that Ewan insists on presenting to her. She has only ever wanted one man, but that man can barely stand to be in the same room with her. Which really stinks considering his sister is married to her brother and they are often together.
I loved Ned so much and here I thought I couldn't love anyone more than Ewan. It took approximately 2 chapters for my heart to hurt for him. He didn't have the strength and "don't screw with me" attitude that Ewan had, so when pitted against him poor Ned didn't stand a chance. Watching his growth and journey to finding the man that he is was what made me love him the most. Sophia was such a fun, strong female character. She was so much like her brother, but born into a society that doesn't admire strength and independence in their women. I can't imagine how smothered she had to feel. The love that this couple shared was enlightening and painful, but genuine and hopeful. I am so thankful that I have discovered this amazing series by Sabrina York!
