He intoxicated her. Commanded. Consumed.

She’s a wanted woman—the stakes are high, her every move is watched, and yet the lure between them can’t be denied.

Review –

This book contains the prequel, First Night, which revolves around Clay and  Julia meet and have crazy, hot, one night stand kind of sex. Night After Night  begins when Clay asks Julia to fly to New York for the week-end.

While this is an erotic romance it also is a life drama.

It was supposed to only be one night but Clay is developing feeling for Julia, but she’s not being truthful with him and he HATES liars. He’s been burned before so he walks away. Julie is having  to repay a debt to a very dangerous man by playing poker with whales and doesn’t want to involve Clay into her problems and if keeping him safe means lying to him, so be it.

Great story line. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Perdition House-Part 1 An Erotic Saga by Bonnie Edwards

Book Description:

Published: June 25, 2014

Perdition House…

When Faye Grantham inherits Perdition House, her family’s secret shame, she expects to sell the property for millions and marry her long time fiancé.
But the spirits who still reside in the mansion have other ideas. Trapped in the bordello, the women who lived and worked there wait to tell their stories to Faye.
The “girls” don’t just hang around waiting, though. They control Faye’s libido, influence her decisions and drive her into the arms of two very different men.
Liam Watson wears comfort like most men wear cologne, but with an interest in adventurous sex, he’s a lot more man than he first seems.
Mark McLeod is a strong, decisive businessman who was not meant to be more than a hot one-night stand. But Mark is in no hurry to end their liaison, and hopes to continue her lessons in sensuality.
As Faye becomes enthralled with her family mansion, she’s soon embroiled in a life-changing situation that has her re-examining her engagement, her business decisions, and her beliefs about herself.
As the spirits reveal themselves one by one, Faye learns their stories: how they came to Perdition House, why they joined the women there and some of the secrets that only a high-class bordello could hold.
But can decades-old secrets affect Faye’s life today?
Ghost stories are not always frightening. Sometimes they’re cheeky, naughty and often erotic…

Welcome to Perdition House: a house of sin, secrets and seduction.

Review –

I’m fast learning that I AM NOT a fan of paranormal erotic romance.

This story line is just a bit much for me and I found my mind wondering, unable to stay connected with the plot. Somehow Ghosts in an old house that used to be a brothel is hard for me to swallow. I won’t be reading Part 2.

Night Is Darkest (Men In Blue #1) by Jayne Rylon

Book Description:

Published: November 24, 2009

Some secrets refuse to stay hidden.

Lacey Daughtry’s perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother’s murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother’s best friends and fellow officers for protection…and comfort.

Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she’s dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she’s harbored for so long.

But the partners are holding out on Lacey. Determined to suppress the most extreme facets of their lust, they agree to settle for sharing the woman they crave while concealing their desire for each other. Until Lacey cracks their resolve, unleashing a torrent of emotions that threatens to distract them when they can least afford it.

Their blossoming relationship is complicated by secrets. And the only way to evade the killer threatening their lives is to bare their souls in the darkest hours of the night. Or everything will come crashing down, just before the dawn.

Review –

I guess this would be classified as “erotic romance” but it also fits into the “crime fiction” genre and that’s what makes it so good.  While there is a LOT of sex, and not your run of the mill male to female vanilla sex, it worked well with the storyline.  Maybe I’m becoming  more in tune with the erotic romance genre and realize that the authors are giving readers what they want because this is the second book that I’ve read lately with a prominent threesome.

The chemistry between Lacey and her brother’s two male best friends is electric and Mason and Tyler have the same kind of chemistry for each other.

Together they cope with the death of Lacey’s brother and a fellow policeman and piece together who killed him and why. It’s a very good story with well-defined characters and a romance that is somewhat believable. I mean, it all depends on if you mind sharing your sexual partner or spouse.

 This is the first in the Men in Blue series but I haven’t decided if I’ll read any of the others. This one is a good stand alone.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Book Description:

Published: January 27, 2015

Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

Review –

 I rated this book five stars *****

This book pulls at your heart-strings from the very the very first sentence, ” The day after Meg died I received  this letter, ‘I regret to inform you that I have had to take my own life.'”, and never lets go.

Cody and Meg have been best friends all their lives and Cody considered Meg’s mother her mother instead of Patricia, who most times couldn’t be bothered with motherly things.  They were different yet everyone in town said they were like two peas in a pod, and that’s why Meg’s suicide hits Cody so hard.  They had planned to go to the same college but things didn’t go as planned and Meg got a scholarship to a private school  away from home while Cody went to the local community college. Meg’s parents ask Cody to go to the Meg’s off campus house where she shares space with a few roommates so she does and when first meeting the them doesn’t like them at all. Once inside Meg’s room she’s shocked about how neat it is and that it looks like someone has already done most of the packing.  When asked about this, her roommates say that Meg left it that way. She finds out the Meg had a boyfriend for a short time and that he had broken her heart. When she meets Ben McAllister for the first time he hates him and lets him know why. He ***ked her friend and them dumped her. 

While going through Meg’s computer Cody finds that there are missing emails and encrypted files and with the help of a nerdy roommate find out that Meg had been posting to a suicide support board and that someone was encouraging her  so she makes it her goal to find this person and make him pay. During all of this and Ben are thrown together with some of the roommates and sparks start to fly.  She dislikes Ben and likes him at the same time and feels disloyal to Meg for thinking about him.   Both Cody and Ben have baggage from the past, more so Cody, but this brings them closer and without his knowledge or anyone elses, she goes onto the suicide support board hoping to smoke out Meg’s suicide mentor.  She does and asks Ben to travel with her to the home of the man so she can confront him. He doesn’t like it but he does because he has developed strong feelings for her. She confronts the man and instead of driving back to Washington with Ben, calls her Mom and says she wants to come home NOW. Her mom arranges for a plane ticket and Cody flies home to leave Ben to drive the 1000 miles by himself. When she gets home she goes to Meg’s parents home and tells them everyone from the beginning and they tell her they knew about the suicide support board, it had been in the police report, but didn’t know the identity of the man.  They tell Cody that Meg had depression but didn’t want her friends to know and that it came to her through Meg’s Mom who had it too, so Cody should not feel any responsiblity for Meg’s death. There was nothing anyone could have done once Meg made her final choice.  Cody goes home and Ben drives up and all is forgiven and they confess their ***ked  up love for one another and I cried like a baby. This book will remain with me for a very long time.
