Abuse (Abuse #1) by Nikki Sex

Published: January  13, 2015

Bonjour, my name is André Chevalier. It has been my joy and my great honor to help those who have lost their way. Not long after I began my journey, I met two such wounded souls.

Renata Koreman, my little mouse. She came to me as a child—shy, mute, injured… broken. It took oh-so many years to start to bring her back to herself! Yet, I could not fully heal her.

Years later, Grant Wilkinson, he too fell into my hands. The ex-Army Ranger was badly disfigured and saw himself as a monster. Isolated by secrets, solitary and self-contained, his colleagues affectionately named him ‘Frosty.’ Yet, how should one behave when besieged by a lifetime of confusion and guilt?

The moment I saw him, I thought of her and I wondered. The eye, they cannot always see clearly. And the heart? Ah, the heart can only guess at the truth. So it was that I remained uncertain.

Could the mouse and the monster heal each other?

Review –

I will read any book or story that has Andre Chevalier in it because he is a hot,dominant,good-looking Frenchman, who exudes sexual sensuality and knows everything there is to know about pleasing a woman.

In this book he is helping an ex-military man, Grant, who is badly scarred and was molested by his father as a child and has never been intimate with any woman other than a prostitute. The Monster. There is also Renate, who came to Andre as an 17-year-old who had been living on the street, who had also had a bad experience with her father and had seen her mother and little brother beaten to death by him in front of her. The Mouse.  She is now a sexual surrogate and Andre thinks the two can help each other. Fantastic.

Also, previously in the story, Grant’s father had died at his own birthday party but now it is suspected to be murder and Grant is number on the suspect list.

 

I loved it. Simply Fantastic!!!!!!!

Curves and Spurs: Seducing Rebecca by Emme Salt

Book Description:

Published: February 18, 2015
Fort Charles has a reputation for sin. All her life Rebecca’s heard the rumors that the cowboys there made a custom of sharing one woman between two men…and now she’s about to find out the truth.

Abandoned by her fundamentalist Mormon father for refusing to marry her sister’s husband, Rebecca has no choice but to work as a cook for ranch owner Carl Lawson and his fiery right-hand man Jamie Briggs.

Beautiful, voluptuous Rebecca is intent on preserving her virtue but can’t seem to resist the pull of the rough, masculine duo…or the wicked traditions of Fort Charles.

Review –

This was so short it should be against the law and I didn’t like the plot and couldn’t wait to get to the end.  Though there are three more in the series, I will not be reading them.

Honey, Baby, Sweetheart by Deb Caletti

Book Description:

Published: August 30, 2005

I’m not usually a reckless person. What happened the summer of my junior year was not about recklessness. It was about the way a moment, a single moment, can change things and make you decide to try to be someone different.Ruby McQueen is a sixteen-year-old high school student with the name, she thinks, of a rodeo cowgirl porn star, or, maybe worse, a Texas beauty queen runner-up. Her mother, Ann, one of the town librarians, was reading too much Southern literature before Ruby was born, and Chip, Ruby’s father, who was already dreaming of Nashville stardom, thought it would make a great stage name someday. Soon after Chip Jr. was born, Chip left to try his luck in the music business and ended up at the Gold Nugget Amusement Park one state over. He returns occasionally for visits that turn Ann’s heart upside down, and Ruby’s stomach inside out.It is summer in the northwest town of Nine Mile Falls, a place where brown bears sometimes show up in the shopping mall and people in hang gliders soar down the mountains and sometimes get stuck dangling from the trees. Ruby, ordinarily dubbed The Quiet Girl, finds herself hanging out with gorgeous, rich, thrill-seeking Travis Becker. With Travis, Ruby can be someone she’s never been before: Fearless. Powerful. But Ruby is in over her head, and finds she is risking more and more when she’s with him.

In an effort to keep Ruby occupied and mend her own broken heart, Ann drags Ruby to the weekly book club she runs for seniors. At first Ruby can’t imagine a more boring way to spend an afternoon, but she is soon charmed by the Casserole Queens (named, quite ironically, after women who bring casseroles to new widowers’ homes in hopes of snagging a husband). When the group discovers one of their own members is the subject of the tragic love story they are reading, Ann and Ruby ditch their respective obsessions to spearhead a reunion between the long-ago lovers. But this mission turns out to be more than just a road trip. Somewhere along the way Ruby and her mother learn the true meaning of love and freedom from it, individual purpose, and the real ties that bind.

This lyrical, multi-generational story of love, loss, and redemption speaks to everyone who has ever been in love — and lived to tell the tale.

Review –

I’m sorry, but I hated it. It was boring and I had to MAKE myself finish it.  Don’t waste your time.
