Hotter Than Ever by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: February 14, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

As a corporate lawyer, there isn’t a whole that gets by Hannah, much less the warning signs of a failing relationship. She knows that her four-month-old relationship with Josh Homes is already over, but he breaks down in tears when she tries to break up with him. She’s too sympathetic and can’t stand to see him cry, so she gives him what he wants: a weeklong trip to Friday Harbor to attend his sister’s wedding, during which he hopes to show Hannah that they were meant for each other.

Matthew Homes hasn’t seen his brother Josh in nearly a decade. Their relationship has been stormy since long before Matthew used his share of the family fortune to set up the biggest real-estate conglomerate in the United States, while Josh blew his share on small businesses that failed, leaving him an everyday accountant. But Matthew isn’t just a successful real-estate mogul—he’s also the ultimate dominant, with sinfully tempting looks and the sly prowess and charm of a panther.
When Matthew sees Josh at the wedding, he’s immediately taken aback by the sexy and confident woman he calls his girlfriend.

But will Matthew fall for Josh and Hannah’s act? Will Matthew be able to resist the temptation of Hannah and steer clear of deepening the feud with his brother?

And what will happen when Matthew finds Hannah wandering aimlessly in the middle of the night and becomes overwhelmed with a desire to see her kneeling at his feet?

Review –

A very sexy but very predictable read about two feuding brothers, one light and one dark and the girl who is wanted by both of them.

It was okay but not good enough for me to invest in the rest of the series.

*Side Note:

I hate it when book covers have absolutely nothing to do with the story line – LIKE THIS ONE. Ugh!!!!!!!

 

Submission – The Complete Set by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: August 20, 2014

Colby Bell has just been crushed by a bad break-up, leaving her robbed and so desperate for cash that she’s willing to take on two more jobs. To make things worse her rent is overdue with an eviction notice comes in the mail.

Suddenly, news of the death of her estranged father comes, with the ownership of a strange business falling into her hands. But not everything is as it seems, she investigates the company only to find it deals with unusual ‘furniture’, made for the custom purpose of rougher-edged sex. To further complicate matters, Jax, a charming and gorgeous designer, is entwined in the business, and exudes a disarming sexuality.

Colby can feel an surging attraction to Jax but is she ready to enter the strange and dark world of BDSM? Is it too dangerous to get physical with a future business partner? Or will Colby’s body give in to its undeniable urges?

This ebook contains very hot and explicit descriptions of sexual activity.  Only mature readers should download this book.

Review – 

The first  free digital book ended in a super cliffhanger so I HAD  to get the complete set to see where the author took these characters.

Although there is a very strong sexual under tone to this story there is also humor. Colby had no idea what BDSM stood for or how the various pieces of sexually oriented  furniture were used. Jax was more than willing to show her the various uses and she discovered she was drawn to the life style the more he showed her. The series of books ends with a HEA and this is a series that could easily be read more than once.

Great read.

Lust by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: April 7, 2014

Back in high school Claire and Brent used to joke that if they were not married to other people by the time they were thirty they would marry each other. Brent remembers his friend as the geeky, glasses wearing redhead, who was always a little too tall and skinny, and Claire remembers Brent as the shy guy with the nice smile and the gentlemanly manners. Neither of them is ready for the fact that Claire is a gorgeous, willowy beauty and Brent is a strapping virile man with a thick shock of blonde hair and a heart stopping, panty dropping smile. What begins with a blindfold develops into a deep exploration that leads far beyond friendship and their previous limits.

Claire, fresh from a breakup with Greg, is very receptive to seeing her old next door neighbor, who is now out of the military and starting a new job in New York. She remembers him as tall, lanky and nerdy and that is NOT what greets her when he comes to visit. He is tall with muscles everywhere and a killer smile. 

They go to a bar, get a bit drunk and end up having sex back at Claire’s apartment. The next morning nothing is said but that night it happens again. Each one believes that it’s just about the sex and the other doesn’t want a relationship,(rarely is their communication in these stories)

Brent goes to her office to let her know how he truly feels and sees Claire in the arms of her old flame,Greg. What he doesn’t know is that Greg came to see Claire unexpectedly and is asking her for a “booty call” (the nerve!) and she is trying to get out of his clutches.  Claire looks up in time to see Brent turn and head for the elevators and tries to catch him but by the time she reaches the street he’s gone.  END. Can we all say CLIFF HANGER!!!!!!

Even though the plot was good and the main characters did have hot chemistry I just wasn’t pulled into the story enough to buy the next book in the series. 

Maybe next time.

Guilty – The Complete Set by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published:July 19, 2015

Rachel has the urge to be bad—very, very bad—and Jesse James is just the one to show her how.

Rachel Brown’s life is perfect just the way it is. Sure, she doesn’t have a boyfriend or a social life, but she has a routine and that is all that matters. Rachel’s loud and rather exuberant roommate, Layla, often comments on how boring Rachel’s life is, but Rachel doesn’t see it that way. At least, she didn’t until the night Jesse James walked into her Laundromat, and her life. Yeah, she thinks the name is absurd and his parents had a very cruel sense of humor. But the dark and simmering look in his eyes makes her body hum with excitement from the moment she first sees him. This Jesse James is not from the old west – he is dangerously seductive and irresistibly tempting.

Suddenly, the safe little bubble that Rachel has built around herself bursts as she throws all caution to the wind. But is Jesse more trouble than she can handle?

Review –

Rachel doesn’t know what to think of the big, bold, dangerous looking biker she meets in the laundromat except that he’s trouble with a capital  T. She decides to take a risk and go with him for a ride on his motorcycle when he offers and little does she know that her life will be changed forever.

I have a reading soft-spot for bikers, MC clubs and bad boys and this series of short books has them all.  There is steamy sexual chemistry, mild domination,gun fire, a twin brother, who is a cop, no less),blazing  hot sex scenes and a hea. A great read and so short can be read in an hour or less.

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.

This is the first in the Hypnotized series by Lucia Jordan and was sent to me via e-mail as a free digital book.

The author writes short “books” to pull you into a certain situation hoping you will buy the three other books in the series. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t.  This time I didn’t.

The story line was good and the sex scenes were very hot and steamy but I just never became invested in the characters so I’ve decided not to go any further in the series. Besides, I know what will happen – Ariana will marry Cody, there will be ups and down but in the end the feelings they have will turn to love and the will have a HEA. 

A pleasant read.

Mark’s expert lessons will teach Autumn the pleasure of submission, but at what cost?”

Autumn Smith has always been a confident businesswoman. Her prowess in the boardroom has helped her achieve the rank of CEO at Tech Titans. In spite of all that success, her love life leaves a lot to be desired. But the discovery of a mysterious business card one night leads her to Mark Paris- a seductively enigmatic ‘Intimacy Tutor’ who specializes in helping women realize their wildest sensual fantasies. He’s a tall and handsome gentleman with the power to control her every desire.
Soon Autumn embarks on the ultimate pleasure seeking adventure – discovering the joys of surrendering to power – with the most gorgeous man and in the most salacious scenarios beyond her imagination…

Review –

Autumn’s boyfriend, Evan, is seeing other women because he says they will do the kinkier things that she won’t. So, when he drops a business card with the name of a sex tutor Autumn plans to take lessons and finally get him to commit to her only.

But once she meets Mark, the Sex Tutor, and she realizes how he makes her feel (like nothing Evan ever has) she begins to have second thoughts about Evan. She continues to see Mark and realizes that she feels more for him than she should. The sex between them is great and hot but could she have a relationship with him? Out of the blue Evan proposes and she finds out it’s because his parents want him married before they will give him access to his trust fund.  First she says YES and then NO. She decides to tell Mark exactly how she feels and he tells her he can not have a relationship with her or any one. Well, this is not what she wanted to hear. 

To make a long story short, she gets fired from her job, and  decides to start her own company that will empower women and hire Mark as part of her team. Mark agrees and confesses that he does love her and that she will be the only woman for him from now on. HEA!

Loved this short series of four books because there was  a plot, humor, and hot sex scenes. Lucia Jordan hit a home run with this one!

Another complete set of short books by Lucia Jordan that I had to have after reading the first one.

Good story line, though a bit unbelievable, but after all it’s fiction, great chemistry between male and female main characters and hot and steamy sex scenes.  All that makes for a great read.

Cara left Pennsylvania because of an abusive relationship and is starting fresh in Colorado  and is not ready for another relationship but Damien Hayes, a very rich and successful CEO sees her at a Charity Ball and places the highest bid for her at the Bachelorette Auction and intends to make her his own. He has dark secrets of his own and more than a few sexual kinks. This set of four short books details the ups and downs in the relationship with plenty of hot steamy sex scenes to keep your blood sizzling.

Side Note:

I have read SEVERAL books and complete sets by prolific writer, Lucia Jordan, and what I like most is that the first book of a series  is almost always offered free digitally and if it grabs you then you can  purchase the others. They are very short, less than 35 pages and are hot and steamy. Sometimes I stop with the first book while other times I can’t stop until I read the entire set.

If you’ve never experienced Lucia Jordan you don’t know what you are missing!
