Blurb

One day you held my hand. One day you loved me.
Then you were gone.
At sixteen, I lost the only love I’d ever known. Thrown back into the foster system, pregnant and alone, I prayed that you’d come for me and save me from life’s cruelties. Only the next time I saw you, it was too late.
Doing what I needed to do to provide for my son, we were finally brought face to face. It should have been the best day of my life, but it was far from it. It was the worst.
That day a monster took me and held me captive.

I begged for my life. I prayed for my son. I dreamt of you, the memories keeping me alive.

You finally came for me. You were my heart. My Salvation.

But sometimes the heart is too damaged, too broken, to be saved.

And sometimes monsters have a way of coming back to haunt me.
*This is a dark story. It is intended for mature audiences. If you need a trigger warning then this book isn’t for you. I have other books of mine that I’d recommend like Current or Tainted by Crazy, but not this one.

Eve Sawyer had a bright future ahead of her when a tragic accident costs her everything. Now, twelve years later, desperation for all she has been missing compels her to seek comfort and pleasure in the arms of strangers. A few hours indulging in anonymous sex with a man named Nate gave her more pleasure than she ever dreamed possible; unfortunately past experiences with men hadn’t given her any hope that night could ever lead to anything more. After meeting Nate again and succumbing to his erotic coercion to enter into a sex-only affair, she soon discovers all the different ways a man with a creative imagination can give a woman with limitations the exciting, pleasurable adventures she has been craving.

Nate Radcliff never had trouble forgetting a woman once he left her bed until he spent the night having sex with a woman who insisted on keeping her name a secret and her face hidden in the dark. A few weeks later, a chance encounter has him coming face to face with the woman he has been obsessing about, and with the fact she is blind. Immediately struck with admiration for the lengths Eve is willing to go to brighten her dark world, he becomes determined to give her the adventures she craves.

For weeks Eve basks in the decadent pleasures and adventures both Nate and his friends give her, making sure she keeps her heart guarded from hoping for more, even when Nate insists their sex-only affair has grown into something more for him. But Nate wasn’t one to give up, especially when he wanted someone as much as he wanted Eve. Just when his persistence starts to pay off and Eve becomes open to a future with him, her best friend, Holly, returns to town, her jealousy and possessiveness threatening to drive them apart. Eve refuses to believe anything bad about Holly, the only person who has stayed faithfully by her side through thick and thin, which drives a wedge between her and Nate. In the end, Eve’s refusal to see her friend’s true motives comes close to not only costing her the man she loves, but to costing her life.

reviewfbknotty1

Blindsided is the first book in the Virginia Bluebloods series by the very talented writer BJ Wane. The Virginia Bluebloods are 4 hot, rich, good ole southern boys, who are best friends. They all buck tradition and certainly anything expected of them by their parental units. Nate, Wes, Dec and Finn. Blindsided is about Nate.

Nate is a playboy who doesn’t do relationships, and once a year, a friend of his, Camille, sets him up with a woman for a night of no-holds barred sex. He’s trying to bury the demons of the death of his drug addicted sister. But this year, his partner wants things a little different.

Eve was blinded in a car accident that killed her high school sweetheart 12 years ago. Every year, Camille finds her a man so she can have some anonymous sex and drive the demons away. This year, it’s with Nate, who gives her more pleasure then she’s ever had.

A few weeks later, he runs into her at a friends rock climbing facility, and is amazed to learn she is blind. He starts to relentlessly pursue her until she finally agrees to go out with him, for a sex only affair. But Eve’s friend Holly has her doubts, and she’s quite vocal. about it, even obsessive. I’d tell you more but…You need to read it to get how incredible it really is.

I loved this first novel of the Virginia Bluebloods. BJ Wane is a remarkable storyteller and I absolutely loved this book. If you are reading the e-books, ignore the typos. They aren’t present in the print copy.

This Book gets 5 Naughty Orgasms!

My Interview With BJ Wane

by Knotty Girl Sandie

1)      What gave you the idea to use a blind woman as a character in this book? Which was brilliant because of all the unique experiences she got to have.

So many times, main characters are ‘perfect’ in books in the romance genre.  I was looking for a challenge, something ‘different’ for a plot and thought, “What if my main character was flawed in a big way?”  Once I decided on a physical disability, the challenge came in how to write an erotica with someone with such limitations.  I loved coming up with the different ways Nate devised to enhance Eve’s sense of feeling.

2)      If you could be any one of your characters, which one would you choose and why?

That’s a hard one, but probably Camille in Bind Me To You would be my first choice.  I admired the gumption it took to brave something like going to a sex club under false pretenses to help stop her blind nephew’s dead-beat dad from disrupting his life by going after custody after years of neglect and abandonment.  I wouldn’t be brave enough to do such a thing, even for such a good reason-I’m too much of a coward!

3)      You are an awesome author and I’m a huge fan. Who does BJ Wane, the reader, read for books when she has time?

First, thank you!  Because I spend so much time writing (and wallowing) in the erotic genre, I tend to prefer books in the suspense or romantic suspense genres for a break.  I love Linda Howard, Sandra Brown and Nora’s Roberts suspense titles as well as Christine Feehan’s Sea Haven series. 

4)      What is your favorite type of music? Any favorite groups? Do you listen while you’re writing?

I’m, going to give away my age here, but I love the oldies, especially the 70’s and a lot of the 60’s.  Listening to ‘old time rock ‘n roll’ really pumps me and yes, I have music blaring when I’m writing.

5)      How long are you going to make the Virginia Bluebloods series? Any other projects for you on the horizon?

Book 5, Bound By Two, will be out December 7 and will be the last in this series.  I’ve switched gears and am writing a 3 book erotic suspense series in which book one starts with the murder of a young woman on a private island owned by three cousins at the end of one of their popular, weekend, BDSM play parties.  The case will be solved at the end of book 3.  This is another challenge for me, one I’m enjoying very much.

 

 

Thanks so much for agreeing to do this and taking the time out of your busy day.

About BJ Wane

I live in the Midwest with my husband and our two dogs. I love dogs, enjoy spending time with my daughter, babysitting dogs and kids, reading and working puzzles. We have traveled extensively throughout the states, Canada and just once overseas, but I much prefer being homebody. I worked for a while writing articles for a local magazine but soon found my interest in writing for myself peaking. My first book was strictly spanking erotica, but I slowly evolved to writing erotic romance with an emphasis on spanking. My favorite genre to read is Romantic Suspense.

The Southern Gentleman: Protective Instinct:

tsg1_coverfinal_b_560x900

ENTER THE GLAM WORLD OF A CRISIS MANAGEMENT AGENCY SPECIALIZING IN CELEBRITY SCANDAL AND POLITICAL INTRIGUE…

 

Sex. Politics. Scandal.

 

When a shadowy group intent on stealing the U.S. presidential election targets a leading candidate’s daughter, jaded professional fixer Nolan Jackson is hired to safely escort her across the country to a star-studded Election Eve event. There’s only one problem: She’s ditched the campaign and disappeared… A southern gentleman who likes fast cars, deadly weapons and total control, Nolan is used to winning at all costs. Except in love. Yet, he’ll soon find himself irresistibly drawn to the candidate’s beautiful, naïve daughter.

 

Sheltered heiress Lola Randall has always played it safe. Now she’s gone rogue. After escaping the media spotlight and her overbearing parents, the last thing she needs in her life is an alpha male.But when Nolan shows her how good it can feel to relinquish control, she begins to secretly crave his domination. Now, she must choose between her independence and falling in love. Because Nolan is determined to win her heart and nail the bad guys before the opposition finds a way to steal the White House.

 

Erotic romantic suspense series for mature audiences

 

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This is Book 1 in a steamy, suspenseful 2-book story. Book 1 ends in a scandalous cliffhanger, Book 2 delivers the HEA.

rev3a

I’ve been looking forward to reading this series for a while. Especially this series starter. Being a blogger means you have a busy schedule so you can’t always get to things right when you want to, but I squeezed this in as soon as I could.

Lola is a young woman who is feeling the stress of her mother’s bid for presidency. She decides to throw off her Secret Service detail and take off.  Nolan Jackson runs a multi-million dollar security firm, with his ex-wife as the VP, he’s also a Dominant. He gets an urgent call to come to Virginia to meet with the Governor’s campaign manager, an old marine buddy. He drives because he has an aversion to flying.

His mission: Find Lola and bring her back. He drives out to find her, and she’s in a perilous situation when he does. She tries his patience, eventually bringing out the Dom in him. He also has to protect her from the bad guys who want to kidnap her. Such an enjoyable read, and I’m totally excited to read the conclusion of this 2-part series and beyond. Sweden Reese has written a winner of a series with hot, refined, Southern dirty alphas.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
