Satin and Pearls (The Virgin Diaries #1) by Lauren Landish

Book Description:

Published: August 19, 2018

Format: E-Book

From Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Landish comes The Virgin Diaries, a series of take-charge alpha heroes and the sassy, innocent women who bring them to their knees.

I have a confession to make. I hate my math professor, Connor Daniels.

From the moment he walked into class, he’s been a thorn in my side, nitpicking every little thing that I do. It burns me how he expects me to be just as perfect as he is. I get that professors are supposed to challenge their students, but he’s such a . . .

He’s a dick.

Cocky. Big-headed. Egotistical.

So why can’t I stop fantasizing about him? Standing up there in his tight jeans, his bulge practically flaunted in my face. I picture the victorious way he’d smirk as he bent me over his desk, flipping my skirt up and taking me. Like it was inevitable.

But here’s the thing . . .

I don’t want him to just take my body, or my virginity.

I want him to teach me everything.

Review –

I am  not a prude, but overall it just struck me as a book of sex scenes with some filler. The story line wasn’t anything new (teacher/student), just another taboo relationship with a predictable outcome. I was disappointed . I won’t be reading the rest of the series.

This is another free digital book from Lucia Jordan and it did not leave me wanting to read the other three.

My main complaint with the story is the “instant sex”. There was no preliminary chemistry or build up  between Magnolia and Ranier, he just told her to take off her clothes, tied her to a table and had sex with her. Then he has the audacity to paint her like that and submit in an art contest. That’s where the book ends and that’s where my interest in the characters and plot ends too.

Hawk’s Property (Insurgents MC #1) by Chiah Wilder

Book Description:

Published: October 26, 2015

From the first time Hawk saw her, he knew he wanted to do dirty things to her in his bed.

Hawk, the muscled, tatted, badass Vice President of the Insurgents Motorcycle Club, sees women as bed warmers, nothing more. He never stays with the same woman, and although there are plenty of women who want to be his old lady, he wants none of that.

He doesn’t date.
He doesn’t let chicks ride on the back of his bike.
He doesn’t fall in love.

And that suits him just fine until he meets her whose eyes light a fire in him. Problem is she’s not so easy to get into his bed. Hawk wants her. And when Hawk wants something he takes it.

Cara Minelli doesn’t want to go to the biker bar, but her friend talks her into it. Swearing off men since she caught her fiancé cheating on her right before her wedding, she has buried herself in her career not wanting a man in her life. Until she sees him. He is sexy, rough, crude, and oh so very wrong for her. So why can’t she stop thinking of all the nasty things he’ll do to her if she relents and lets him in her bed?

Then a vicious killer who has been strangling women in the area focuses on Cara. Police think bikers are involved. Can Cara set aside her trust issues and let Hawk into her life?

Hawk sees it as his job to protect what is his…and Cara is very much his even if she doesn’t know it yet. Cara keeps her heart guarded, but when danger comes calling, their lives collide. Hawk will stop at nothing to keep Cara safe and make her “Property of Hawk”.

The Insurgents MC series are standalone romance novels. Hawk’s Property is Book One in the series. This book contains violence, strong language, and steamy sexual scenes. HEA. No cliffhangers. The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

Review –

I’ve become a big fan of erotic romances involving motorcycle clubs and this is one of the best I’ve read. It is a bit predictable at times but that can be overlooked  because of the steamy sexual tension between Hawk and Cara. They come from difference worlds and she is a lawyer but love conquers all and in the end they have their HEA.

Great read.  Adult with explicit sex
