Sexy Stranger by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: May 23, 2017

Format: Audio/Audible

Luke Wilder knows the lovely stranger doesn’t belong the second she struts into his sleepy little town. She’s a city girl who won’t stay longer than it takes to get her fancy foreign car repaired–which is why he should ignore his powerful need to make her notice him. It’s just that the moment she opens her smart mouth and gives it back as good as she gets, he wants to swap a whole lot more with her than insults.

Charlotte Freemont instantly dislikes the rude, redneck stranger she finds herself stuck with. Too bad he’s as hot, and as tempting, as sin. On the run from her messy past, she’s not there to get tangled up with a man, even one as hard to resist as the hot-headed Luke. But when he gives her a private tour of his craft whiskey distillery, their attraction ignites and Luke seizes the chance to show her there’s a whole lot more to him than rough and rugged.

When he finally learns her secret, will it shatter his trust in her? Or do they have a chance to create a whole new blend?

A sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite.

Review –

Loved this book, which I put in the category of “soft smut” because the sex in the plot line was appropriate and not overly done and “in your face”. 

The story itself is not new, hot girl running away from her problems, ends up with her car broken down somewhere in the southwest(this time in Texas). She meets a hot, hunky, rugged man and they clash, until they don’t and they live happily ever after.

Loved it and love Kendall Ryan.

Dirty Little Secret (Forbidden Desires #1) by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: September 14, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero.

But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How can I resist when the sexual sparks zapping between us set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns about my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

Review –

I just noticed that I hadn’t published a review on the second (really the first) book in the Forbidden Desires series so let’s blame it on today’s VERTIGO.  It’s crazy today!!!!!

Anyway, I’m glad this book was a freebie because the first half was Dirty Little Tease, which I had already read but goes on to show Gavin trying to seduce Emma Bell, sexy librarian to be his, while his brother Cooper is doing the same thing. Quinn, the oldest brother tells her that she HAS to pick one and let the other down easy. Naturally she chooses Gavin, the bad boy dominant and poor Cooper is never the same. Emma also finds out that Gavin’s first real girlfriend had died under mysterious circumstances in his apartment with ligature marks around her neck and wrists. She keeps her distance from him for a while and gives in and listens to his side of the story and there is a minor HEA.

All in all a good read.

 

Dirty Little Promise (Forbidden Desires #2) by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: October 9, 2017

Format: E-Book

The secret I’d discovered about sexy billionaire Gavin Kingsley was so big, so haunting wasn’t something I could overcome. I had a decision to make—hear him out and see where things went, or turn to his brother Cooper, who I was fairly certain was in love with me. But something dark inside of Gavin called to something dark inside of me. And I wasn’t willing to just walk away—not yet anyway.

This is the conclusion to Emma Bell’s epic love affair with the alpha and enigmatic Kingsley brothers. Secrets will be exposed, sides will be chosen, and nothing will ever be the same.

Review –

This book concludes the story of Gavin and Emma even though the series will continue and I was less impressed by this installment than the other two because there wasn’t as much sexual angst. There was conflict and dangerous turmoil but in the end you knew there would be a great big HEA. 

I will take a break and read some other genre before coming back to finish the series but I want to find out what the author has in store for Cooper and Quinn Kingsley.

Dirty Little Tease (Forbidden Desires #0) by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: September 4, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

A lonely librarian desperate to experience the kind of passion she’s only read about in her favorite literary classics.

One handsome stranger with a tragic past.

A chance meeting that will change their course of their lives forever. . .

This is a first look at the much-anticipated Dirty Little Secret, by New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

Review –

The title is perfect – the story is short with just enough going on to make you want to purchase the next book in the series.

The story line is a bit cliché and the reader knows what’s going to happen and which brother is “the big bad wolf” and that there is much more to their tragic background than we are led to believe. That being said, you will not be able NOT to read it and purchase the next in the series. Great going Kendall Ryan. You got me!!!!

 

Filthy Beautiful Lies (Filthy Beautiful Lies #1) by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: March 2016

**Warning: this book contains an addictively filthy alpha male who will dampen your panties and own your days and nights. Proceed at your own risk.** 

Meet Colton Drake..

I have no idea why she auctioned off her virginity for a cool mill. Regardless, I’m now the proud new owner of a perfectly intact hymen. A lot of good that will do me. I have certain tastes, certain sexual proclivities. My cock is a bit more discriminatory than most. And training a virgin takes finesse and patience – both of which I lack.

Sophie Evans has been backed into a corner. With her sister’s life hanging in the balance, the only choice is to claw her way out, even if that means selling her virginity to the highest bidder at an exclusive erotic club. When Colton Drake takes her home, she quickly learns nothing is as it seems with this beautifully troubled man. Being with him poses challenges she never expected, and pushes her to want things she never anticipated.

A sinfully seductive erotic romance where everything has a price and the cost of love is the highest of all from New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Kendall Ryan.

Review –

“Sophie Evans is auctioning off her most prized possession to help her sister Becca receive her treatments for Cancer. She is kind, innocent but totally lives for her sister not for herself.

Colton Drake is hot, dominant and mysterious. He doesn’t want an inexperienced woman but can’t help being drawn to Sophie; wanting to teach her and make her his. He doesn’t push her as he wants her to want him, to want her trust. Above all, he wants her companionship. As a reader experiencing his thoughts, you can see that he is a good guy underneath but is afraid of giving too much of himself to anyone.

As these two characters live together, there are bound to be changes in feelings. I enjoyed that this wasn’t instalove or that there wasn’t any rush to having sex. This was a slow build up to something that could potentially be more, the way that Sophie became less scared of any kind of physical with Colton and the conversely the way that Colton reacted to Sophie as a woman and something more than what she was bought for – to be a sex slave.

Without a doubt, Kendall Ryan knows how to write foreplay and really anything physically sexy between a man and a woman and Filthy Beautiful Lies was no exception. Hot, hot, HOT!!!

As secrets are revealed towards the end and I am left feeling crazy to know more about Colton’s past, I am left wanting for more. I can’t wait to see how their situation plays out in Filthy Beautiful Love scheduled for release in September.

My only small complaint was that I wish it was longer – I think that this story could have been resolved in one book.  I don’t mind cliffhangers or continuations if there is enough story for a second book or because the first book is lengthy but I am more of a fan of longer complete reads in all honesty. Overall this was an enjoyable read and I look forward to book 2.”

This review is from Shh, Mom’s Reading blog and I agree with  every word!

Sinfully Mine (Lessons with the Dom #2) by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: July 14, 2015

She was forbidden.

I didn’t care.

As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits, but the girl was tempting as sin and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.

I didn’t.

When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.
With my heart on lockdown and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.

No strings. No attachments.

And definitely no falling for her again.

Review –

This is the second book in Lesseons with the Dom series and features Hale’s (The Gentleman Mentor) best friend and owner of the BDSM club. He is a very sexy dominant man and seems to have lots of secrets.

It’s New Years Eve when the book begins and in walks a girl, now a woman, from his past. Six years ago he’d had serious feelings for her and she’d been finishing high school and it didn’t end well for either of them  and now here she is with a broken heart and wanting HOT SWEATY SEX, nothing else. Macey is Hale’s little sister and off limits to Reece but he agress to have “no strings attached” sex but he knows that soon he’ll be having the same old feelings for her again.

This book has a dual POV and it was perfect  because Reese’s feelings and thoughts were very hidden from Macey almost all the book. He loved her but he fought his feelings and he hurt her so many times, but thank God he left all his insecurities aside and went for her, cleared everything up and showed he was worth loving.

Hale finds out about their arrangment and the friendship between the two men suffers but it eventually gets back on track and things work out for everyone.

There is LOTS of explicit sex and I’ve read some reviewers that say it was too much, but all i say is if you’re reading an erotic romance expect that there will be lot of sex, it’s like walking into a candy store and not expecting to see candy.

The epilogue is priceless and ties the series together.

The Gentleman Mentor (Lessons with the Dom #1) by Kendall Ryan

Book Description:

Published: May 5, 2015

She’s a client. That’s all.

Or it should be.

But with every lesson, she’s becoming more.

The secrets I’m hiding behind the image of the Gentleman Mentor make telling her the truth—and having anything real—impossible.

I’m training her for another man, and that fact guts me every time I think of it.

I know she’s not mine … but part of me won’t accept that.

Am I willing to risk it all to keep her?

He calls himself the Gentleman Mentor.

Just reading his ad makes me feel more alive than I have in years.

He promises to teach me the art of seduction … and show me the most sinfully erotic pleasures. He’s going to help me become the kind of confident, sexy woman men can’t ignore.

Six lessons … with the most gorgeous man … who happens to be a Dom.

The only problem … now that I’ve experienced his brand of delectable domination will anyone else ever compare?

Review –

Five-star-feedback-on-oDesk

Although this is an erotic romance with light BDSM the whole story is tastefully done. As you can see by the five star rating-I loved it!!!!!

Hale trains submissives for other men but when he takes on Brie he realizes he knows her. This has never happened to him before and although he doesn’t know her personally he know that his roommate is friends with her. And to make matters even more convoluted, Brie wants to be trained so she can please Kirby, who is said roommate. She has no idea that Hale knows Kirby and he doesn’t let on.

After their first sexual encounter Hale feels differently about Brie, more possessive, more caring and that means trouble. It’s been two years since he caught his fiancée with another man and he vowed to not be taken in again.

At the same time, Brie feels bad that she hasn’t thought about Kirby at all since starting her training sessions with Hale. It is Kirby she wants, right?  Then why does she feel that it’s more than just sex with she and Hale interact with each other?

Eventually Brie finds out that Hale knew Kirby from the beginning and wants nothing to do with him and then sees Kirby for the man he really is and wants Hale back.  She goes to a BDSM club and surprises Hale and it all works out.

This is a fast read and it’s the first in a series, which I plan to continue.  There is explicit sex and crude language but neither are out-of-place in the story.
