I lovTalen is a sexy alpha male who will do anything to protect his mate Cara and her daughter Janie....Even kill. Janie is just as cute as a button. I love how she has all the heroes wrapped around her little finger. I have been looking for awhile for a good series that is well written and def a keeper since I fell in love with the Breeds series from Lora Leigh and Black Dagger Brotherhood series from JR Ward. Yeah!! I finally found one. It has just enough action, erotic love scenes and a Alpha Hero. This is one of those books that you will read over and over again that is how good it is. This is a must for all Paranormal erotic fans who love their books with a good plot, steamy love scenes and a Hero you will want him to kidnap and sink his teeth into you. Can not wait to see how the next book turns out. ...more
Wow! Wow! And Wow! OMG I loved Fated, but Claimed was so much better. Right from the beginning the action starts and it never stops.
Dage, King of theWow! Wow! And Wow! OMG I loved Fated, but Claimed was so much better. Right from the beginning the action starts and it never stops.
Dage, King of the Realm is a sexy super Alpha Male hero who is arrogant, dominate and very protective of his mate and family.
His gaze swept her head to toe. "You're wearing my colors, love." He stalked forward and leaned down to brush her cheek with a kiss. "Soon you'll be wearing me," he whispered for her ears only.
He is use to everyone doing what he says with out any questions, but his mate Emma is a strong and stubborn woman. I am so happy Emma was chosen as his mate rather then a wimpy heroine. It just made the book more fun and interesting.
His gaze sharpened. "I've given you until tomorrow morning. Lower those shields or I'll shred them."
Anger began to boil like acid in her stomach. She lifted her chin. "We'll see about that, King."
Dage and Emmafs relationship is not easy. She defies him every chance she gets. Loved how Dage and Emma would bicker back and forth.
His jaw firmed. "You will be marked."
Her temper stirred to war with desire "No."
His full lips quirked. "I should've known the Queen of the Realm would be a pain in my a**."
Loved how we got to see Conn and Moira. It was great to see them talking and getting us ready for their story. Conn is definitely just like his brothers with an alpha attitude. Yeah baby...Conn already had me in Claimed with...
"Meaning I coming to get you."
I was so excited we are introduce to new secondary characters, Caleb and Lily. I am hoping they will be a couple and get their own story. I loved these two. She is strong will and he is a super sexy Alpha Male.
Lily tossed her head away and shoved at Caleb's chest. "Bite me, Caleb."
He raised an eyebrow "Apparently Lady Lily has entered this century. You use words like that, milady, and you'll get what you're asking for."
I adore Janie and was happy we got more of her dreams with her friend Zane. I am curious on what he is and look forward to more of his story and the roll he plays in this series.
I highly recommend Claimed if you are a Paranormal Romance fan who loves a fast paced novel with tons of action, angry sexing, strong heroines, many uber Alpha males and a great plot. Series should be read in order starting with Fated book 1. Claimed is a keeper and will re-read again.
Primal Law takes a different take on Wolf-shifters with special abilities, instant mating and other beings that are interesting. For me it is 3 starsPrimal Law takes a different take on Wolf-shifters with special abilities, instant mating and other beings that are interesting. For me it is 3 stars - like it, good start to a series that sounds promising.
Jax liked him right from the beginning with his sexy wolf Tattoo, over protective side when he rescues Kira. Loved his sweet, bit jealous and alpha male attitude.
Kira was a sweetheart especially when it came to the other Paranormal beings. I love how all she wanted to do was help them. But considering Jax is a wolf shifter she really was not all that willing to help him.
The pacing of the novel was smooth but at times felt like it was more on world building than the romance department. But once the romance does kick in, it is sexy and the sexual tension is hot. The chemistry between Jax and Kira was nice and was rooting for them to get their HEA.
Love the action scenes and all the secondary characters including the other beings. With a good ending I look forward to see how this series plays out. Even though I just like this novel it is still a keeper as I can see re-reading it in the future.
If just liked Eternal Rider (Lords of Deliverance #1) and not sure about continuing the series give it another chance. Lords of Deliverance series isIf just liked Eternal Rider (Lords of Deliverance #1) and not sure about continuing the series give it another chance. Lords of Deliverance series is getting better with each novel. So far I am just loving this series. A bit different from Larissa Iones Demonica series. Immortal Rider was alive with action and so many different emotions. The characters jump off the pages that you can feel their happiness and sadness. It has romance, action, and betrayal.
I love limos character who is free spirit and kick butt. Not only does she have three alpha male brothers but she has to deal with a human Arik alpha male. She has no problem holding her own when she has to come face to face with Arik. She has done some bad things in the past and has many secrets not only from Arik but also from her own brothers. Wow this leads to some intense moments. I love her interaction with family as it leads to some funny and sad moments.
Arik loved his character. I really felt bad for him when he kissed Limos then was taken away and tortured by Satan, who believes Limos is his. Poor Arik could not catch a break not only does he have to worry about Satan coming back for him now he has Pestilence after his soul. My heart broke for him when he got away from Satan and then he had to deal with the after effects of not knowing if anything was real while Limos and his sister try to heal him. Felt his pain when a bad incident happens with his sister and brought memories of their past.
Arik and Limos heat up the pages with their hot sexual chemistry. Perfect couple and was rooting for them all the way to get their HEA.
Loving how the characters from the Demonica Series are playing a small part in the novels. Wraith cracked me up in Immortal Rider. Still a smart mouth and loved it.
Thanatos and Regan I adore reading about. Never took away from Arik and Limos story just added so much to the plot and a part of it. Look forward to their story as I am hoping for an intense read. Immortal Rider is a keeper for me.
This was my 1st book I read by this author. Loved it! It had everything sadness, romance and suspense. I do not think I have ever read a book that deaThis was my 1st book I read by this author. Loved it! It had everything sadness, romance and suspense. I do not think I have ever read a book that dealt with so many issues. There is love, trust, death, murder, drug addiction etc. I think alot of people can relate to this book as something that has happen at some point in their life. I would read a part and say to my self. Wow I am so happy I have never gone through that then I would read another part and want to break down crying because I have been through that and I know what the character is going through (the emotions the charcaters go through were right on the mark. I felt like I was reliving my life). The characters jumped out of the pages. I felt like I was part of the family. The Hero Joe was super alpha male and stayed the same through out the book. He took care of what was his the only way he new how, might not always be good or sugar coated but he made sure what belong to him was taken care of. The Herione Violet was an amazing & strong woman. Kristen Ashley wrote her characters with alot of thought and emotion. You could feel their happiness, love, anger and sadness. This a keeper for me and will read more from KA. ...more
Smokin' hot bad for you Brock had me at the 1st kitchen scene. WOW was it intense. Another great book by KA. Did not disappoint. Brock is up front witSmokin' hot bad for you Brock had me at the 1st kitchen scene. WOW was it intense. Another great book by KA. Did not disappoint. Brock is up front with what he wants and to the point. Loving KA descriptions "Brock informed me in a deep, sexy, sleepy, rough whisper"
Brock like all of KA Heroes are not big on dwelling on mistakes they make with the heroine. It happened lets fix it and move forward. To Brock a promise is a promise no matter what it is or about. I wish Tess would of let Brock grovel more when she found out that he was a cop and undercover.
Favorite Quote Tess-"it's somewhat unhygienic for you to drink out of the milk jug." Brock-"Babe, I had my tongue in your mouth for ten minutes this morning. How's that any different?" ...more

Favorite Quotes Riley to Mercy: "Though right this second, I'd take plain old hot sex. Got an itch, kitty?"
Mercy: "So what, you followed me hoping I'd lower my standards and sleep with a wolf?" Riley: "You want to claw at me, kitty-cat? Come on." Mercy: "Sorry, I don't beat defenseless puppies." ...more
I really wanted to like this book. Actually stopped in the middle to try another 2 books from LD. So happy I did love her books. Well came back to SlaI really wanted to like this book. Actually stopped in the middle to try another 2 books from LD. So happy I did love her books. Well came back to Slade and the first half of the book kind of dragged, but the second part picked up and enjoyed it.
Pros: First sex scene was fan your self sexy. Slade smart mouth character was throughout book Slade as alpha picked up Slade shows his Jealous side Huge twist that was amazing made the book so much better Trisha friendship with other New Species memorable Later on in book gets emotional and good
Cons: The action in first half of book dragged on Slade did not seem to alpha for me more of a smart mouth Did not feel the connection for Slade and Trisha
I really wish I would of given Slade a chance the first time and read all at once. We meet Valiant who is the next in line for his own story (would of gotten a better feel of him before I read his book) and plus got to see Slade and Trisha. My loss. If new to LD stick to reading in order and give her a chance. They only get better as Valiant is an amazing read. These books can be stand alone and always know what is going on, but so much better to read in order as we meet new characters in books.
It is rare to find a author who can top the first book in a series. Cherise Sinclair did that and more with Dark Citadel book 2 in the Master of the SIt is rare to find a author who can top the first book in a series. Cherise Sinclair did that and more with Dark Citadel book 2 in the Master of the Shadowlands series. Her writing voice is beautiful and story telling is entertaining. What did it for me was by chapter 3 you already get beautiful descriptions, just enough back story on the characters, sizzling sexual tension, and you will fall in love with the Hero who is gentle and very loving.
“You’re allowed to look, sweetheart,” he murmured, running a finger down her hot cheek. “I enjoy having your eyes on me.”
You have a modest, polite and always obey by the rules Kari the Heroine that was raised by a strict father. She was never that interested in sex until her boyfriend told her about domination and bondage. She agrees to go with him to Shadowland to take lessons. He turns into a jerk and she decides to leave but Master Z catches her before leaving and gets her to stay and keep taking lessons with Master Dan an experienced Dom who never takes a sub for more than one night after the death of his wife a few years back.
Master Dan is the brooding Hero that can not let go of his diseased wife. Dan and his wife never had kids so her death left him feeling lonely. He just wants someone to love him, but he still aches and has guilt from the lost of his wife. Because of his guilt he never takes a sub for more than one night until Kari comes into his life. Now he has so many mixed emotions that he does not know how to deal with them. It was heart-wrenching to read at times because Kari thought he was having the same loving feelings for her but then he would become cold and pull away. It was nice to see his little possessiveness/jealous streak of Kari through out the book. Dan is a sweet talker and very touchy-feely. I fell in love with Dan by chapter 3 but Master Dan you had me at chapter 5 with one little word “Nibble.”
“Red,” she whispered. She bit her lip again, and he couldn’t stand it. “If anyone nibbles those lips, it will be me,” he murmured, licking over the plump bottom one. He tilted his head and took her mouth, then delved deep inside. She tasted of rum and coke and something that was essentially Kari.
It was a joy to watch Kari transform from a mousy school teacher to a beautiful, sensual woman. She falls in love with Dan pretty quick, but who wouldn’t when you have a sexy Dom who gets you and is whispering sweet, erotic words in your ear while caressing you in a gentle and loving way. She also had a backbone as she at times spoke her mind when Dan would get cold on her and back off. She also would bite her tongue and took what ever punishments Dan gave her in a erotic good way.
It was a treat to see Maser Z and Jessica through out the book. It was always just enough to let you know how they are doing and seeing that they are still madly in love.
And can not forget The Capture Gardens scene. Oh my it is erotic, fun and intense. Hope we get more of this in the other character stories.
Dark Citadel is a keeper. This book is the one you would want to read on a rainy night in front of a cozy fire with a nice glass of wine. You do not have to like BDSM to enjoy this book. For me that was just an added bonus. It is truly a love story with a Hero and Heroine that are meant to be together and reading how they are going to get there.

I really was not sure how I was going to like Mystery Man because the H/h sleep together for 18 months with out knowing each other or names and the Hero just comes to the Heroine house once or a few times a week to have sex with her and then through out the night leaves. Was a little creep out at the beginning of the book because the Heroine Gwen lets the Hero Cabe "Hawk" Delgado sneak in her house, climbed in her bed and she did not even make a scene. Boy was I so wrong because I loved this booked.
Gwen lives in her head at times and her lover has been her Mystery Man and she was content with that. Well her Mystery Man “Hawk” is now real and in her face because her life is in danger from something her sister did. Well I got more creep out again because Hawk knows everything about Gwen. But later on fall in love with Hawk because why he knew everything about her.
Hawk creep me out in the beginning then fell in love with him, then hated him then fell in love with him all over again. Well I fell in love with him after he started seeing Gwen then hated him when a certain misunderstanding happens between the two. Kristen Ashley has a way with her books at one point sometimes you hate the Hero. Lets just say with the Thursday scene had me ready to cry and beat him over the head. Once that was all cleared up I fell in love with him all over again.
Hawk as been dead inside for 8 years because of a sad incident that happened to him. Because of this he has not been in a serious relationship. He would of wanted a relationship with Gwen but he was giving what she wanted a Mystery man. We get to learn about Hawk and his past little by little through the book. Because of all the danger in Gwen’s life from her sister, their relationship is pretty rocky at times. Gwen will do things that Hawk is not happy about. This is when we really get to know Tack. (can not wait for his story.)
Kristen Ashley writes some of the best epilogues. She is truly the Queen of Epilogues. Mystery Man epilogue is awesome. Loved it.
The sex scenes were scorching hot, plot was interesting, action was good, relationship was rocky at times where I could not turn my pages fast enough to find out if they were going to have their happy ending and the Hero is a super sexy in your face-Uber Alpha male-biker babe. A great start to a new series. This is a keeper for me.
Valiant starts with a bang and never lets up. Wow it starts off with a human in his yard and his reaction to her. Perfect start to his book as I wouldValiant starts with a bang and never lets up. Wow it starts off with a human in his yard and his reaction to her. Perfect start to his book as I would not want it any other way. Valiant is introduce in Slade’s book #2. He is more animal than human and does not really like humans. This book has a nice mixture of action, love, anger and a good plot. It moves smoothly through out.
Valiant the hero is pushy, super possessive and protective with no patience. He is a super sexy Alpha hero that Tammy was able to bring to his knees. Loved how he would have his little jealous moments because of his animal and not so human side where he misunderstands things. It was nice to see he was still Alpha throughout the book but was finding his human side at the same time. When Valiant was angry, everyone around him felt it and when his feelings were hurt you felt it.
Tammy the heroine was sweet and strong as she always put Valiant in his place. She is a beautiful heroine who became friends with Breeze another New Species. She loved Valiant for his animal side and was able to bring out his human side. She never knew love and never had a family but was able to fall in love with Valiant, his family The New Species and considered them her family.
Great to see more characters from the previous book and introduce to new ones. Can not wait for Tiger's story.

My dearest friend at Belle's Book Bag highly recommended this book. So happy she did. I was hooked from the 1st page. Thank you Belle's Book Bag for introducing me to a new author.
Elise is strong, independent, wonderful mother and survivor. She has gone through a lot through her bad marriage and issues with her brother. She moves with her young daughter to a new town to try and start a new life and keep her daughter protected. Her daughter will always come first.
Brody is her sexy neighbor who she comes to his aid during an accident. They both do not want to be in a relationship but decide to be friends with benefits.
Brody is sweet, caring and loving, not only does he build a real friendship with Elise but also her daughter. He always puts his ladies first. His is also protective and holds a lot back. He is an alpha male but since he knows a little about her bad past he becomes gentle with Elise.
Love Brody and his siblings. They all play a good roll in this book. Elise parents are the best.
The love scenes were erotic but done tastefully. Brody does have a thing for oral play. Lets just say the love scene in the Dance studio is HOT!!!
Not only was I glue to my e-reader wandering if these two were ever going to realize they are more of a couple than good friends but I was also wandering when I was going to find out about Elise past with her ex-husband and brother. Lauren Dane gives little teasers here and there but never the full story. I was expecting to get a story about her issues with her brother then later on get something about her ex or vise versa. Boy was I wrong. I got all of it at once. It is a pretty intense moment. The writing is so real, that I felt I was reliving my life. While Elise was telling her story about one of the incidents I just kept thinking wow how can any body go through that and still be strong and while she was telling about the other incident I actually had to stop reading and take a breather. Elise comments, thoughts and actions are what has really happened to me and were dead on.
If you are looking for an erotic book with a Sexy Tattoo Hero, with a good plot, different emotions, serious sexy love scenes and beautiful characters that are real then this is the book for you. This is book 2 in the Brown Siblings series but I read it and never read the other books and was not lost at all.
I was not sure how I was going to like a Cyborg for the Hero. I am glad I gave this book a chance it was very good. I like the scene where Flint &I was not sure how I was going to like a Cyborg for the Hero. I am glad I gave this book a chance it was very good. I like the scene where Flint & Mira are seeing the doctor. Some find it not so nice, but I thought Laurann did a fine job with Flint being sincere blocking her from others viewng her. Granted later he does not block her from others viewing her but in the beginng he did. Got to think this is a fiction book so Flints character can be an A$$ with no emotions because that is only what these cyborgs know. I did enjoy how Mira was able to bring out the softer side in Flint. I hated/love one secondary character. Hated this character at the beginning but loved him towards the end. I am eager to read his story to see if he will find a love who will bring him to his knees. If you like your men Alpha with a good plot and loves scenes that are erotic give Burning Up Flint a chance.
My first time reading R.L. Mathewson and will not be my last. H & h are believable (minus Jason's food obsession) R.L. Mathewson has a way of writMy first time reading R.L. Mathewson and will not be my last. H & h are believable (minus Jason's food obsession) R.L. Mathewson has a way of writing where you can not put the book down.
Jason is alpha yummy in a good way. Not in a way where he is in the h face letting her know she is his and only his. He does it in a sneaky way where he will scare off any dates etc. Cute and refreshing. I adored the H/h fiendship build first and see where it was going to take them.
It was nice too see the H/h interact with other characters and it did not take away from the story like a fill in just to use writing space, not boring either it just added to the story. Playing For Keeps is a keeper for me.
Jaci has been good friends with twins Cam and Chase for awhile. She has been in love with Cam since she was 13 and he was 18.
"Wait on me, Cam. I'll grJaci has been good friends with twins Cam and Chase for awhile. She has been in love with Cam since she was 13 and he was 18.
"Wait on me, Cam. I'll grow up and I'll take all the bad things away"
Eight years later Jaci is hoping to see Cam at a party. Now that she is 21 he will not be making her go home like he use to. Or she thought. Cam is 26 now and has wanted Jaci for as long as he can remember. He wants to keep her safe and protected from other guys that come to these parties. This is when the sexual tension starts and the dominate side of Cam comes out.
"You can go home with me, or I can take you back to your parent's," he rasped. "Which one?" "The Party---" You' re not staying here." He backed her against the front of the truck, lifting her until he was wedged fully against her, his hands sliding beneath the skirt to the bare flesh revealed by the thong she wore.
Now seven years later Jaci runs into Chase at a party hosted by her dear friend Courtney and her husband Ian. She finds out that Chase and Cam also work for Ian at his mansion, where she will be working on a design for the mansion. She has been running away from Cam and Chase for seven years since a very uneventful night happened between all of them. This is where the story gets interesting. Another client Jaci has done designs for has started some nasty rumors. Cam and Chase are not too pleased about the gossip going around. Cam made a promise to Jaci years ago that he would kill any man who hurt her. The Twins take it upon them selves to try and get the truth about the rumors and Jaci is not to happy about them meddling in her business. Chase and Cam are very protective of Jaci, but Chase has a better way of dealing with it. As for Cam he can not control his anger over someone hurting Jaci.
"Cam, you can't contol her life here." "I have no intention of controlling her life." Cam stated. "I'm going to become her life, Chase. There's a difference.
Something bad happened from Cam’s past that he is unable to have sex with a woman by himself and spend the night with a woman. I could not flip my pages fast enough to find out what happened to Cam. Lora Leigh did an amazing job keeping readers waiting for the his big secret. The only way Jaci can have Cam is if she is willing to have Chase too. It broke my heart at times reading this because she has always loved Cam and for her to have his heart she is willing to sleep with both of them. But the hardest and saddest part was when Cam was not able to sleep with Jaci in bed after their ménage. And the reason why. This goes on for a while through out the book. Jaci has let him have it a few times because of this. Loved it when Cam would have his little jealous/possessive moments. One of my fave quotes from the book.
Khalid: "There, my reputation is now once again intact, you may inform Paige you were ravished after all." Jaci: "You are a rogue." She laughed. Cam: "He's also endangered if he doesn't take his fucking hands off you"
As for Chase he is the sweet brother that can not tell Jaci no and she can walk all over him. He also loves Jaci but not the way Cam does. He knows that Cam is one that has Jaci heart. Love Chase and at times was rooting for him to have Jaci’s heart when Cam was being pig headed.
This is truly a love story where your hoping and wandering how Cam and Jaci are going to get their HEA. Lora Leigh not only wrote an erotic ménage but a good storyline with a suspenseful plot. She has you wandering through out the book about secrets and the evil people who started the gossip. The emotions run so deep with some of the sadness and anger. I love it when I read a ménage with tasteful graphic sex scenes, emotions and a good plot. Wicked Pleasure is really Cam and Jaci story on how she will do what ever it takes to have his heart. It was a nice and painful at times journey to see if she can have him trust her enough to open up about his bad past.
This is one of my fave from the Bound Heart series.

Armentrout is an amazing author for her YA Books, especially The Lux Series (which I love and can not get enough of) that is written in first person POV. But as writing J. Lynn for her romance novels and in 3rd person falls a bit flat.
I prefer Romance over YA and after reading her YA novels I was so excited to see how she writes a Adult Novel. I expected more. I did like reading Tempting The Best Man and rate it as 3 stars-I Liked it, but it could of been so much better.
I love the brothers with there sarcastic brotherly comments. I enjoyed reading how involved they are with Maddie’s family. Loved Maddie’s family.
I could not connect with Maddie and Chase. I think I would of connected more with them if there was not so many inner thoughts and rehashing why she loves him and why he should not love her etc., between their dialog and if they would of eased up on the angst. There was not enough of dialogue time with them. I love some angst between the H/h as long as have some sexual tension, but there was none. I did think Chase was a sweetheart at times especially when he jumped to make sure he was the one to pick her up when her car broke down and did not take advantage of her while she was drunk. He seemed to make sure he was always there for her. Love how he would remember the cutest and embarrassing things when they were kids, loved when they had their memorable talking moments.
I do look forward to the rest of the series as I think this series has potential. I love Jennifer L. Armentrout 1st person POV and I hope she finds her groove as J. Lynn in 3rd person. If new to reading this author, not a big fan of this book and do not mind YA novels then give her Lux series a chance and see what an amazing author she is. ...more

Melissa’s Grandmother Nellie wants her granddaughter to meet a nice man and settle down. So for Melissa’s birthday she wins her a date with a sexy fireman from a charity auction. There is a little misunderstanding with the auction that brings Brody and Melissa together.
I fell in love with Grams since Melissa and Brody’s first date. Which did not go to well since they fought most of the time, but ended up pretty steamy at her doorstep. Grams had me laughing so hard at times.
Brody and Melissa both do not want to be in a relationship but it seems that they can’t keep their hands of each other. Just when their relationship starts off it is interfered by misunderstandings from their past. I could not turn my e-reader fast enough to see how they will get their happily after.
There was some yummy sexual tension. The bickering between Brody and Melissa usually leaves them in a heated moment. And lets just say they really need to stay away from doors during these moments.
If you are looking for a fun plot, HOT smexing, LOL moments with a opposite attract couple that are meant to be together then this book is it. ...more
I was looking forward to Ryan’s story in Hot For Fireman and was disappointed. I fell in love with The Fireman Who Loved Me, the characters and JennifI was looking forward to Ryan’s story in Hot For Fireman and was disappointed. I fell in love with The Fireman Who Loved Me, the characters and Jennifer Bernard writing but I could not get into this book.
It started off okay with Katie and Ryan having some bickering moments but I did not feel any chemistry between them. The characters seemed flat.
The sex scenes were a bit rushed and I did have to read them again because I felt I missed a part. The sexual tension was not there like in her 1st book.
Hot For Fireman was missing some LOL moments. Even the secondary characters (old men in the bar) were flat. The scene I thought was okay is when the firemen did a strip dance on the bar for charity at a bachorlette party.
I will continue to read this series because I did enjoyed her writing in the first book. This can be a stand alone book so you do not have to read it if reading the series. ...more
Dane is a sweet, sexy and really short read. I like it but I would of loved it if the H/h did not sleep together right away. The chemistry was good whDane is a sweet, sexy and really short read. I like it but I would of loved it if the H/h did not sleep together right away. The chemistry was good when they were together and you can feel their pain and happiness. Got good background on why he left and why he is back. I thought Charlotte slept with Dane way to fast. She has not heard or seen him in like 10 years and the first time she see’s him in her Garage they sleep together on her desk. I would of like a little more bickering before this happened.
I enjoy Liliana Hart’s writing and her yummy Alpha male heroes. I will continue to read The MacKenzie series when I am in need of a quick erotic novel fix with steamy sex and a dominate, possessive, Alpha male hero.
Ever since I posted Burning Up sexy cover as my pick for Lusting For Covers Meme by TBQ's Book Palace awhile back on my blog. I was looking forward to reading it. Even though I rate it as a 3 star-I like it. I really wanted it to be a 4 or 5 star. Now it is not a bad thing that it is 3 stars. I just had a few issues with the book but at the same time I enjoyed it.
I love how Jack is a hot Smoke Jumper Alpha Male Hero who is arrogant but is also sweet. My kind of hero I love in my novels. The sweetest moment I loved is when he asked her “Dance with me” right after he got out of the shower, he was just wearing a pair of sweatpants, t-shirt, barefoot in her living room.
Lily I adore and thought she is a strong willed heroine that does not want help with her crazy stalker issues especially from Jack and his crew.
I loved Jack and Lily as a couple but did not always feel their spark. I think I would of connected more with them as a couple and did think they could of have great chemistry together if in between there dialogue there was not a lot of inner thoughts. They do have some hot scenes together but at one time got interrupted by the stalker thoughts, then went back to what they were doing which was hot and heavy, then stopped because of a fire the stalker caused. I actually had to go back to make sure I did not miss anything.
Parts of the novel seemed to be a bit repetitive and have too many inner thoughts with the two main characters that at times slowed the book down. Plus the inner thoughts were too long in between the dialogues. Too much rehashing their time together when they were 16 and how the stalker caused the fires back when she lived in the city. I really wanted to know more about Jacks background especially since he hates being enclosed and has serious issues of this that now as an adult he prefers to sleep in the hangar out in the open.
Love the storyline and loved reading about Jack and his crew in action when came to putting out fires. Kudos to Anne Marsh for writing some awesome action scenes and a creepy stalker that made my skin crawl. Enjoyed Jacks brothers (not by blood) Rio, Evan, how they became orphans and brothers. Loved when they were together in a scene. The brotherly love they have for each other is fun with their sarcastic comments to each other. They never took away from Jack and Lily’s story just added so much to it. Towards the end was intense and could not turn my Kindle fast enough.
This is my first Anne Marsh novel and even though I did have some issues with Jack and Lily story, I do look forward to continuing this series and her other novels. Evan and Rio got my attention and hope to see more of Jack’s crew in future novels. Evan is up next in Slow Burn look forward to reading it and showing off the sexy cover on my blog.
It seems like with every new book I read in Master Of The Shadowlands I am loving that hero. Nolan is a sweet and sexy Dom. I love how he was always kissing Beth on the lips like they were a couple. He is a gentleman holding out chairs for her. He was fun and playful in and outside the club. He even made his punishments in the Club freakin sexy... Nolan baby you can put me up on the Bar naked anytime and punish me. Loved his sense of humor.
"Oh, God," she whispered. her mind had gone out of focus. Her heart beat so forcefully it should have knocked him off her.
He chuckled. "No need to go that far. 'Oh Master' will do."
This book was different then the others as we get more of Master Nolan outside of the Club and OMG the Play Party at his house is wickedly delicious. Plus we get to see more of Master Z, Jessica, Master Dan, Kari and definitely more of Cullen. I am happy to add another 5 star- Amazing read to Master Of The Shadowlands series.

Nick the hero lives the life of fine restaurants, fancy parties and beautiful woman in LA. He does not plan on staying in this small town he moved to, only took this job as a chef because he only has a visa to work in CA. If he worked in a diner as a chef in LA or San Francisco people would know him and look down on him for working in a dive and not a fancy restaurant. So he took a chef job in a small town where no one would know him and can not judge him. His father thought cooking was for sissies. But he can’t stay there because he has to prove to his father that he is not a sissy and a real man.
He said he would stay a year, but is he really not staying that long. As soon as things slow down in LA from what he did wrong and he is able to go back, he is going.
Not only is Nick hot in the kitchen, he is also Hot in the storage room, his kitchen, Cafe Bathroom and the man surely knows how to make use with a whisk, chocolate pudding and oranges.
Phoebe’s life has always been responsible and simple, but since Nick rode in with his huge monster of a vehicle her world has been anything but simple. He has her doing things she would never normally do since she took over the Cafe. Love the scene where they were digging for clams in the cold rainy weather. It was nice to see them not but heads but smile and have fun.
I did not like how some scenes would take longer because of the character descriptions on what they were thinking. For one scene I thought it was going to be good was on the beach, clothes coming off, a little fondling, Nick brings out rope and does ask her if she has been bonded before and then next thing you know it is ended with something like she was his all night. So we never got to read on what happened between them. It kind of felt like some of the scene was cut out, and I think if hearing on what they were thinking was cut a little shorter we could of got the rest of what really happened.
The secondary characters were fun. Sometimes their stories used up more space then they needed. Her niece and Brother law I did enjoy reading about, but felt at times it took away from Nick and Phoebe’s story.
I enjoyed reading Deliciously Sinful and was my first read by Lilli Feisty. I will be reading more from this series. I gave it 3 stars only because it was very easy to put down and pick back up. I would still recommend Deliciously Sinful. It has scorching hot scenes, a tortured hero and a good plot.

This is something I have never read before. Rock Chick reads more like a comical mystery. I gave it 3 stars liked it because I am not really sure how I actually feel about it. There were times the story annoyed me and that was because Indy got on my nerves more than once. But then there were times, few and far I actually enjoyed her character.
Lee was of course like all Kristen Ashley's heroes sexy, possessive with an Alpha Male Attitude.
It seems like all Indy's friends are a bunch of crazies and all Lee friends are reserved. I love friends to lovers theme. Was not always feeling Lee and Indy's connection on this.
The action was over the top for me and crazy but I am assuming that is what it is suppose to be like. So I will take that in consideration when reading book #2.
