Gray is rash, impulsive and breaks the law. Kristie finds herself falling for him but will her attraction to Gray prove fatal?

When Kristie comes home from college, the last thing she expects is her world to be turned upside down by the appearance of a handsome, gruff stranger, Gray. He is the head of a biker gang in town called the Devil’s Advocates.

Kristie’s mom asks if she can befriend Gray in hopes of getting him on the straight and narrow. The plan backfires, however, as Kristie finds herself falling for Gray. Is it possible he feels the same way? The connection between them threatens to tear down everything Kristie has ever held dear.

The more she falls for Gray, the more messy things get. As Gray gets yanked further and further into the world of his gang, Kristie finds herself having to make a choice: stay on her own path or risk everything to be with Gray. Will she be able to make it out unscathed?

Review –

You know I’m a sucker for a motorcycle club/bad biker boy/contemporary romance and when I ran across the blurb for this one AND it was free, I couldn’t resist.

It’s the typical good girl/bad boy contemporary romance BUT with a twist. Kristie and Gray are cousins by marriage and they are hugely attracted to one another. The story deals with Gray’s uncle  trying to get him to change his ways and his dealings with a motorcycle gang and Kristie coming home for a college break , meeting her new step-father and his nephew, Gray. There is also a policeman, John, who becomes attracted to Kristie and uses her to get the goods on Gray so he can be arrested for a hit and run/murder that he did not commit and a motorcycle club member, Armand, whose intentions are anything but honorable, when it comes to Gray.

There is of course a few sex scenes but they are on the mild side(compared to some) and by the end of the book Gray has told Kristie he was just using her, but in reality he doesn’t want to involve her anymore deeply into his chaos  and so he skips town and Kristie starts dating Armand. (I also gagged when I read that because he is so slimy )If anyone is using Kristie, it’s Armand.

All in all, a great read. Looking forward to Book Two.

Black Light: Cuffed (Black Light Book 5) by Measha Stone

Book Description:

Published: April 20, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

“Do you think you’re the only woman in this room that loves the pain?”

Sydney isn’t one to go around directing the doms she plays with. If they don’t know how hard and how long to go, she walks.  Voicing her desires isn’t even an option. As an assistant DA she’s used to asking questions, not answering them.

Tate knows exactly what Sydney is after, how far she could go before she finds that sweet oblivion submissives find beneath his flogger. But he’s not giving it to her until she can ask for it.  He sees the fire burning in her and will try everything to show her how to let it burn wild.

One snag, there’s a murderer in town and it’s their job to make sure they get the right guy and keep him behind bars. But when the case starts to hit a little too close to home can Tate and Sydney work side by side without losing each other in the fray?

Review –

This is the first book in this series that I have read and I found it a very enjoyable read because it had an actual plot separate from the sexual storyline. Most times in the genre of contemporary/ erotic romance sex dominates the entire story and sometimes that’s fine but once in a while it can be a bit much. It was refreshing to have the sex play a part in the story, like a character.

There was suspense, angst, dark sexy times, an intriguing plot, stable characters full of passion, snarky attitudes, and a journey to self-acceptance with a sexy domineering hero. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Excellent read  and I plan to check out the other books in the series, which I found out are all written by different authors.

Note*

Call me a chicken but I’m not showing the cover because my feed shows up on my Facebook page and it’s very very sexual in nature and I don’t want to shock my friends. You can see the picture on my page of covers I like.

 

 

Good Men (Book 1) by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: August 22, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

“Say, yes,” his husky voice coaxed, lips gliding against the column of her throat.  As his lips ghosted over her skin, his hands inched the hem of her skirt higher and higher . . .

They weren’t what they seemed. They weren’t who they claimed to be. They were something so much more. Trapped in a loveless marriage by a man harboring too many dark secrets to count, Aspen discovers her very life is in danger. She tries to walk away, but it’s never that simple. Nothing ever is.

Kevin and Liam are the only two men that can keep her safe. They are the only two men that leave her heart racing and her body charged with an electrical current. They are bad for her, but she can’t get enough. They have a secret life, and she’s been tossed into the middle of it. She thought they were there to save her. Maybe . . . she was wrong.

Review –

Aspen married a man twenty years her senior and at first things were fine, but five years later he’s hitting her, sexually ignoring her, and because she saw something she shouldn’t, he’s threatening her life.

She seeks the help of two handsome tattooed attorneys on getting a divorce but finds it’s not going to be easy. Allan, her husband, is in a “mob” and has many influential friends.

She is as immediately drawn to the strong bodied, caring men as they are  to her. Their lives are much different now from their early years being brought up in a motorcycle club, but it’s that knowledge that will help them now help Aspen.

Great read and the sexual chemistry between the attorneys and Aspen was off the charts.

Looking forward to reading Book Two.

Adventurous Me (Me, You and Us #1) by Deanndra Hall

Book Description:

Published: March 31, 2014

Format: Free Digital Book

Boring. Tiresome. Predictable. That’s how Trish’s husband of almost 30 years described her when he told her he was leaving. Trish sets out to drink her blues away when she literally stumbles onto a man who offers her the adventure of a lifetime. Trish has no idea what she’s walking into when she visits Bliss, the local BDSM club, but under Dave’s tutelage, she takes to the new lifestyle readily.

And when she’s paired for two weeks with Clint, the one Dom in the place who can’t seem to stand her, sparks fly. He keeps her so confused that Trish isn’t sure what’s going on. She’s sure of one thing, however: She’s falling for the handsome, tortured soul, and she’s hoping he’s falling for her.

But when a simple mistake puts her in harm’s way at his hands, Trish has to decide: Is it an adventure worth dying for? And when everything falls apart, can she manage to forgive him? More importantly, can he forgive himself and bury the ghosts that have been haunting him for too long?

Adventurous Me is a fun, sexy, sweet, explicit, romantic romp that’ll leave you breathless and hopeful. And it’s definitely not for the under-18 crowd.

Review –

Adventurous Me is the first book I have read by author Deanndra Hall, but I can tell you, it definitely will not be my last. From the first page to the very last page I was completely hooked! I absolutely adore the main character, Trish. She proves that adventure and love have no boundaries no matter what your age is.

Trish is a forty-nine year old woman**, who is in the process of being divorced after thirty of marriage. Her soon to be ex husband claims her to be “boring, tiresome, and predictable”, so she sets out on an adventure to prove him and herself that she is anything but that.

While Trish is out drinking one night, trying to prove that regardless of her age she can still be adventurous, she falls into the lap (literally) of a man who is willing to show her just how adventurous and fun she can be, given the right circumstances. Trish is pulled into a world that she knew nothing about(BDSM) but embraces every single second of it. A world where she meets Clint.

Clint is a man who has been through a world of hurt. He’s a man who gets thrown together with Trish to show her the ropes (pun intended) of this new world that she is eager to explore. Together they learn many things about one another and about themselves as individuals.
This book has everything from sexual chemistry, steamy sex scenes, heartbreak to happiness and a HEA.

Loved it!

** One of the many reasons I loved this book is that the author shows how more mature (and older) women can have just as much fun and fulfillment at a “sex” club as the younger set. Most contemporary romances/erotica are written with a young perfect-bodied woman as the lead and some days that’s hard to relate to. So THANK YOU Deanndra Hall!

 

Dark Room (Society X #1) by L.P. Dover and Heidi McLaughlin

Book Description:

Published: January 23, 2016

Format: Free Digital Book

The rules of Society X are simple . . . break them and you’re out.
Rule #1 – No names
It doesn’t matter if you want to know, it’s forbidden.
Rule #2 – No exchanging numbers
It doesn’t matter if you want to call, it’s forbidden.
Rule #3 – Everything is to remain strictly anonymous.
It doesn’t matter if you want to tell, it’s forbidden.
The Dark Room is the only place you can live out your fantasies and no one will ever know it’s you.
For Parker, what started out as a business transaction has turned into an addiction.
For Mia, it’s been a chance to discover who she truly is.
What happens in the dark will have you begging for more . . .

Review –

Dark Room is the story of Parker and Mia. They have known  each other for ages, since he is her brother’s best friend. Mia just got out of a not so happy relationship and has the opportunity, to ‘test’ a club for adult fun (BDSM Club) called “Society X”. She has the need to step out of her ordinary and to risk something for once, for her crush on the older Parker is obviously one-sided. What she doesn’t know is, that Parker, who is a silent investor for Society X, is about to test the so-called “Dark Room” of the premises, too…

In the Dark Room there is no talking and no light, there is no exchanging of names or numbers and both Mia and Parker are intrigued by the thought of anonymous sex with a stranger and as fate will have it they become each other’s first and only partner in the Dark Room. The chemistry between the main characters is amazing both in and out of the Dark Room. 

I don’t want to give too much away but just know it gets even better the more into the book you go and even though a bit predictable, who cares!

The story flows perfectly and the writing is good and the sex scenes are steamy.  Dark Room is as stand alone and I highly recommend it  if you’re looking for a super hot read.  

Bait by Jade West

Book Description:

Published: August 14, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me.
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.

Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait.

Review –

Abigail Summers moved to a new city to leave behind her old life. But no matter where she went, demons from her past caught up to her, making her crave a dangerous game.Abigail was one gutsy woman. She perfectly aware what she jumped into and took matter into her own hand to regain her spirit. I like how she could let herself loose while not losing control.

Phoenix may be a stranger, but he was no stranger to the dark needs. He let the monster lay dormant inside him until she breathed it back to life. On the surface, Phoenix had that wild and dangerous appeal. And I like how beyond that he was perfectly normal. He may be ruthless, but he also had heart.

What I like the most about these characters is that they’re unapologetic for what they need and they clicked together like a jigsaw puzzle. The sex scenes were dirty and the situation added to the hotness.

The book started dark and mysterious with a tinge of ominous tone. I enjoyed the overall storyline even though I wasn’t surprised by outcome.

Bait is a story of two broken souls finding comfort with each other. It would appeal to readers looking for dark, erotic read with element of suspense.

At Any Price (Gaming the System #1) by Brenna Aubrey

Book Description:

Published: December 9, 2013

Format: Free Digital Book

When Mia Strong, proud geek-girl and popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she’ll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact.

It’s a desperate step, but it’s the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother’s mounting hospital bills.

Difficulty Level: Millionaire CEO

Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first million at seventeen. Now, in his mid-twenties, he’s sexy, driven and–as CEO of his own gaming company–he’s used to making the rules. Before Mia knows what’s happening, he’s found the loophole in the rules of her auction. Every stipulation she’s made to protect her heart gets tossed by the wayside.

She can’t tell if he’s playing her…or if he’s playing for keeps.

Review –

I loved the characters and plot of At Any Price. The characters were unique and well-developed. They both have their hangups which causes them to close themselves off, one from the other, at times. I just wanted to shake them back into reality.

The romance is slow burn, and almost teasing. It’s there and then it wasn’t. Adam decided to bid and win the auction because he didn’t want her to “sell” her virginity and even though he is the one to take it, it’s only after the deal has been cancelled. He loves her but doesn’t know how to tell her. Unbeknownst to him, Mia is falling in love with him too but doesn’t know what to do with those feelings.

Mia didn’t  know it but Adam has known about her and a lot of her financial difficulties for over a year because of being a player in one of the video games she plays. When she finds out, she is livid.

I am content with the end to their story in this book, so I might not read on in the series. The next one is told from Adam’s POV, which I am certain I WILL NOT read and the third book is their HEA and since I know that’s how it’s going to end I don’t care the spend money to confirm it.

Pleasant read.

 

Dirty Filthy Rich Boys (Dirty Duet #0.5) by Laurelin Paige

Book Description:

Published: February 22, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

Because when dirty, filthy, rich boys play, they play for keeps.

Review –

Dirty Filthy Rich Boys is the prequel novella in the Dirty Duet series and is set 10 years before the first book, Dirty Filthy Rich Men, starts its story.

 Sabrina was just a freshmen student who had a big crush on a guy who didn’t even know she existed. But what she didn’t know in return was that her existence had become more than noticeable and acknowledged by someone who was about to rock her world. And then some. And some more. Just in case she didn’t feel his earthquake. 

Though not a traditional triangle Sabrina will find herself caught between the two bad boys; one whom she will have a crush on and one whom she will crave. It’s a game of sex, control, jealousy, manipulation, secrets and possession.

This is a butterflies-in-your-belly set-up driven by Donovan’s sinister and calculated manipulations and further complicated by Weston’s charm and loyalty to his best friend. What will happen? I’ll let you know in my review of Dirty Filthy Rich Men.

This is a very HOT read.

Timeless (Black Brothers Standalone Novella) by Brynley Bush

Book Description:

Published:January 26, 2016

Format: Free Digital Book

Marcus Dunn came into my life ten years ago and possessed me body and soul, introducing me to a world of dark and forbidden pleasures before disappearing without a word.
I’ve never forgiven him.
Or forgotten him.

Walking away from Ariana McKnight was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
But running into her after all these years, handcuffed to a spanking bench, has me forgetting everything I promised myself ten years ago.
I still can’t have her.
But I can’t stay away.

One tough FBI agent who longs to give her power away—just not to him.
One former Navy SEAL who wants to take it, but can offer her nothing in return.
One snowbound weekend in the middle of nowhere with no choice but to resolve their unfinished business.

Review –

Ariana treats herself to a weekend getaway to explore her interest in BDSM. She never expects to run into Marcus Dunn. A love affair that she thought was just beginning was shattered  when he walked away ten years ago leaving her heart-broken.

Marcus has reasons why he left her behind and think one night with her will be sufficient, but one taste of giving her what she needs isn’t going to be enough.

The chemistry behind the two main characters seemed a bit stilted but I could have dealt with that had it not been for the convoluted storyline.  He’s an ex-Navy Seal and she is a FBI agent and he’s working on a case of insurance fraud and she helps him solve it (getting stabbed in the process). It was just too much for me.

I wish the author would have constructed a storyline out of her interest in the BDSM lifestyle, had her meet up with Marcus again and have them work out their problems and have a HEA and leave their jobs out of it.

I had high hopes for this book but was very disappointed .

Review –

This is the first short book in the Delightful series and it was free,  but that still didn’t keep it from boring me to sleep. ‘Nuff said!
