Good Men (Book 1) by Lucia Jordan

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.

Hot Connection, The Complete Set by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: July 18, 2017

Format: E-Book

Zoe Lang’s life isn’t working out quite as she hoped.

Estranged from her family and sick of her dreary existence, she spends her nights dreaming about her high school sweetheart, Edward. She knows that one day soon, he’ll come back to sweep her off her feet, and together they’ll build the life that he always promised her. She just has to be patient while he builds his career and saves his money until they can be together. Then one night, Zoe’s apartment building catches fire, and her life changes forever when she meets smolderingly handsome firefighter, Cole Mitchell. When Zoe saves his life, their futures become inexorably entangled.

Review –

The first “book” in this short set was free and ended with such an abrupt cliffhanger that I HAD to buy the complete series.

Poor Zoe, if it wasn’t for her bad luck she would have no luck at all.

She wakes up in her small apartment on the third floor and smells smoke. She grabs her purse and her photo album with all the momentous of Edward, her “boyfriend” since High School.

She notices that a neighbor and her two children are not accounted for and tells a fireman who rushes back into the building. Then,three  fireman come out of the building with the missing occupants but the other fireman is missing.Zoe runs into the fiery building and finds him caught under a metal pipe. She grabs the hot pipe and he is able ti get free and then the roof collapses.

She wakes up in the hospital with both hands bandaged and a fireman sitting in the chair next to her bed. She saved his life and now he wants to be there for her.

He sees the album with Edward’s pictures and letters but still asks her to come to his home after she’s released so he can take care of her. She really doesn’t have any other place to go so she gives in even though she thinks it’s a dangerous thing to do given how attracted she is to the fireman.

Days go by and the sexual tension between them gets too strong and Zoe gives in to her feelings but then regrets it and moved out and into her brother’s home, even though there is tension between them.

Fast forward and we find out that Edward is a cheat and a “gold digger”(Zoe will inherit a nice amount eventually) and her brother’s wife turns out to be Edward’s sister and they’ve been working together.

Needless to say, Cole and Zoe get back together and there is a HEA.

Good story all around and made for a very steamy and pleasant read.

RANT: I HATE this cover because it is very misleading and totally off the mark for this series. Total book cover rant coming soon!

Format: Free Digital Book

Sara Parker is a woman who values her independence. She runs her horse stable on nothing but guts—and her reputation as a woman who stands on her own two feet. Until Adam Steele appeared in her life looking and smelling like sex on a stick. Sara can’t say no to a quick roll in the hay. Still, is the best sex of her life worth giving up everything she’s worked so hard to achieve?

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!

The Nature of Desire by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: June 12, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

To help out her friend, Carly pretends to be Tanya for one gorgeous, glamorous night. Even if she’s not a sophisticated event organizer like Tanya, how difficult can overseeing the gallery auction be for a fine arts graduate? Attending the elitist art event is a dream come true and Carly needs the money the job will pay. The evening turns out more magical than Carly’s wildest dreams when the sponsor, French art investor, Antoine Thomas, invites her back to his hotel room. For a few fairytale hours, Carly can be someone she isn’t. She takes what she wants, but when she wakes up with a lot more than a sorely loved body, her life changes in a frightening way.

Review –

Okay, the first rule of thumb is NEVER pretend to be someone you’re not! That’s what Carly agrees to do for her friend(who she has only known a few months)and proceeds to oversee a gallery opening. So, of course, she runs into the handsome French art investor, Antoine Thomas, and he believing her to be Tanya(whom he has been emailing) asks her back to his hotel room. So, after several drinks and acts of sex, she wakes up the next morning, groggy but with a wedding ring on her hand. Can we all say SURPRISE?

Not really, this story is as old as time and a bit boring so I won’t be reading the other three short books in the series.

Suffice it to say, I was glad when the story ended.

 

Beneath This Man (The Complete Set) by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: June 12, 2017

Format: E-Book

Alexa really, really needs a big break.


She’s been working at the newspaper for five years and she hasn’t had a single byline. She’s sick and tired of doing research and getting coffee. So when Alexa finds out that one of her friends is attending a sex party, she begs to tag along. Alexa has never done anything wild, but for the sake of getting a good story she’ll do whatever it takes, and writing about the underground group sex scene would definitely get attention. The only thing Alexa doesn’t expect is that she’ll meet a man at the party, a man who doesn’t seem like he belongs there either.

Review –

Book One was free and, of course, the end was a semi cliffhanger so I HAD to buy the complete set, which consists of four mini books. I say “mini” because they are less than thirty pages each.

Anyway, the story line is not new but Alexa and Luke had a great chemistry so I wanted to see where the author would take them. Where she took them was to a predictable HEA by ways of a pretty boring relationship . I was pretty disappointed because usually books by Lucia Jordan are steamier than this one. 

Oh well, live and learn. I’m sure it won’t be the last time I’m pulled into a storyline and shell out money for the other books.

 

Crazy Beautiful by Lucia Jordan

Book Description:

Published: April 18, 2017

Format: Free Digital Book

Valeri Huntington has her dream—a publicist for one of the top firms on the east coast. Nevertheless, she can’t help but feel like something is missing. A long list of men has been left in her wake because they just can’t seem to measure up or she finds a way to rationalize her way out of anything before it gets too serious. The one relationship she did have ended roughly and left her picking up the pieces up of her heart for months. After that breakup, she vowed to throw herself into her work and that’s where she’s been ever since. The night she ran into Dallas McCormick she was left feeling like she’d been hit with a ton of bricks. The reclusive man that lived in the mountains was somewhat of a legend. He’d outright insulted her and pissed her off like no one ever has, and yet, her body burned from a desire that she had no idea even existed.

Like a magnet, she was pulled to him and she had no idea why. Dallas McCormick was not the man everyone created rumors about. However, there is no denying that there is a dark shadow that looms over him, and it’s one that could very well put Valerie in harm’s way.

Review –

This is the first book in the Crazy Beautiful series and although it was good, I don’t plan to read the others. There was a bit of chemistry between Valeri and Dallas but it wasn’t the combustible type and it’s too predictable. Dallas is ex-military and suffers from PTSD and that’s what puts Valeri in harm’s way at the end of the book. The reader knows that everything is going to work out fine in the end so why spend money just to confirm that?

It was a short pleasant read. Great cover though!

 

 

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.

Review –

50860-kindle-3-box

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.
