You know why I like control?" he said with venom in his voice. "Because, without it, little girls like you would get scared off."
"I'm not scared of you," I breathed.
Having read Joya Ryan's Brazen series and absolutely loving it, I jumped on the chance to read this new trilogy by her. This book was definitely very different from her other series, and if I'm being honest, very different from what I expected...and not at all in a bad way. It's an erotic, all-consuming, and emotio ...more

Yours Tonight is no exception to the above. Lana is an unusual character in that she is independent yet vulnerabl ...more

This was an adult contemporary romance, featuring a girl who had been raped at 13.
Lana was a strong character, and had the sense to get out of a situation if she was feeling uncomfortable. I felt quite sorry for her and what she had been through, a ...more
I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I was asked to read this title for review by a friend and I readily agreed after reading the blurb. It sounded intriguing and definitely like something I’d like. I wasn’t wrong.

I just want to say that it isn't you it's me. I felt from the beginning that this wouldn't work out. That we were too different, but I wanted to try working it out anyway. I mean, perhaps somewhere along the way we could perhaps find something in common. Perhaps I would be surprised and finding you so much better than I expected you to be.
But I'm sad to inform you that even though you throw in Callum in the story and made him a hot fireman so wasn't that enough for me.I want ...more
