Zurlo1Blurb

reviewed-500As a writer for The Eclectic Traveler, adventuresome daredevil Tru Martin indulges her penchant for travel and thrills of all sorts.

reviewfbknotty1

Let me start out by saying that I LOVE this series! I was thrilled that Michele brought it back, and I would LOVE to see it continue. Or, there could be Doms of the CIA, or SEAL Doms, or Doms of the Special Forces, or…never mind, I’m just thrilled we have another.

So we have travel writer and major thrillseeker Tru. She has cheated death, and now she’s ticking off the items off her bucket list that her grandma helped her with. But while at a travel resort, she finds a dead body. She gets FBI agent Liam who is a brand new top in the lifestyle, and Jed, an experienced dominant, another agent as well. They both have spent time with her and she decides she wants both of them.

They end up undercover at her ex-dom’s lifestyle B and B, but Liam and Jed are both in for a surprise. They also have a killer to  catch. Tru does her own thing, can they convince her to be theirs?

As usual, Michele writes a book I can’t put down. I will say, most of the book, I thought Tru was way too toppy and much more switchy than a submissive. Though she seemed to sink right into her sub role. But that’s the fun of a good book, seeing a character be one way then go off in a different direction than you would expect. Just Loved it!

PG Excerpt

Tru wasn’t afraid of death. It happened to everyone eventually, and it was what you did with the moments between then and now that mattered. She climbed onto the edge of the basket. From this height, she knew she could get at least a ten count out of it, but the daredevil part of her wanted to push for longer. “I count twenty, and then I throw the pilot chute.”

Well aware of her love of adventure, Elvis shook his head and chuckled. “Ten, fourteen if you want to push it, but don’t go longer than that. We’re not that high up. You have an altimeter, so don’t forget to use it. Don’t push past 250 feet.. If you’re panicking, it’s okay to pull it early, better to be safe than a pancake. If you really open up in your batsuit, you’ll definitely get 10 seconds of flight time.” He pointed to a field in the distance. Two trucks, tiny like toys, were parked on the road next to it. “James is waiting for you there.”

As she threw a leg over the edge, Tru winked at Elvis. “See you on the other side.” She jumped straight out, careful to keep her eyes on the horizon so that she didn’t become disoriented. It was different than skydiving from an airplane. The wall of air was missing, and she found that she loved the complete lack of sound. She spread her wings. Wind whistled past her ears, but it was the kind that enveloped her in silence and wrapped her in a singular cocoon. This mindless nothingness, these moments of pure delight, was the sweet bliss she spent her life chasing. She was gloriously adrift.

Ten seconds might not seem like a lot of time, but with the absence of everything, it stretched to an eternity. Even the ground rising up to meet her took on a surreal quality. It was deaf and blind, shades of green and brown that meant nothing and everything all at once. It was breathless beauty, earthy and elemental in its stunning simplicity. And it was the void, that great, black nothingness where she stored her most precious parts. She lived a lifetime in those ten seconds, but a check of her altimeter showed that she’d run out of time.

Reluctantly she pulled the pilot chute to open her parachute. With a tremendous whoosh, it deployed, jerking her from the freefall and delaying the moment of death. The ground still rushed at her, but it came slower, and it seemed suddenly real. As she fell, she used the handles to steer so that she didn’t end up in a tree or an awkward bush. Soon she felt her feet make contact, and she ran a few steps until the chute touched down as well.

Happy Spank Patrick’s Day by Tymber Dalton

Spank1

Cali, Max, and Sean are hosting a kinky St. Patrick’s Day party for the Suncoast Society. From unicorn shibari photo shoots to crazy party games, it’s bound to be a wild night—even if Cali’s bondage-loving cat, Baxter, has been confined to a back room for the duration of the festivities.

Yet it’s not all fun and games. Before the party even happens, tragedy overshadows the evening, driving home the point that life is short and uncertain, friends are everything, and each moment should be fully appreciated. It also brings a lingering, unsettled question back to the forefront for the triad.

For tonight, they’ve been asked to carry on, and that’s what they’ll do. But as the party plays out around them, will their future path finally solidify in their minds, or will it leave them with more doubts and questions than answers?

Note: This book contains double penetration.

reviewfbknotty1

Happy Spank Patrick’s Day is one of the Suncoast holiday party get=together books. Our party hosts this time around are Max, Cali, and Sean. (I have noticed btw, Cali is getting very switchy, Sean much more subby. Where have all the female subs gone?) Anywho’s the book starts with our invite from Tony. (I soooo love that man *sighing happily*) I enjoy that invite, it makes me feel like part of the in-crowd.

Baxter is up to his shenanigans again, and of course, Sean is all tied up in it. (I won’t ruin the surprise, but rainbows are involved.) The party is looking like it will be huge, then tragedy strikes the Suncoast family. All I’ll say is have a hanky, a box of kleenex, or a Sir (or Ma’am) with a tear-proof t-shirt handy. There are most definitely boo-hoo moments. But the party goes on.

Tymber did an incredible job with this, as she does with every subject she brings up in her books. It’s real life, and real life is full of all kinds of stuff. There’s ups and downs, but here, The Suncoast family shows that family isn’t always about blood, but about the people who you choose and choose you. It doesn’t matter if you are gay, straight, Bi, transgender, kinky, vanilla, or any other combo, just accept people for who they are. That’s always what comes across.

STORY EXCERPT

“Wow. So far, it looks like we’ll have at least forty for the party Saturday night.” Cali looked up from her phone, from the e-mail with the latest list Tony had sent her. “And he said there are fifteen more maybes from the pool of people he allows to give maybes, or who had valid reasons for being a maybe.”

It was Thursday afternoon, and the final plans were underway.

Cali’s best friend, Essie, nodded. “That’s a good-sized party. This whole street will be packed. My guys are going to leave their vehicles at work tomorrow evening and carpool back here together in my car so people can use our driveway and yard to park in, too.”

They were sitting on Essie’s lanai. Essie’s baby boy, Eddie, lay soundly sleeping in his play crib next to her.

“I bet your mom’s looking forward to babysitting tomorrow.”

“She can’t wait.” Essie’s smile faded. “I can’t believe everything that’s happened. It feels like it was yesterday that I was flying back here from Spokane after getting that call.”

“How’s she doing?”

“The house is gorgeous. She’s finally finished everything major she wanted to do, including painting. And she baby-proofed. Eddie’s got his own room there now. It was my room. The backyard is a kid’s paradise. She looks twenty years younger, no kidding.”

Cali tipped her head as she studied her friend. “How are you doing?”

The heavy sigh hovered over the table for a long moment before disappearing. “I’m still angry” she quietly said. “More than I thought I should be. Ted finally called me out on it and I’m going to start seeing Doyle. Professionally,” she added, even though she didn’t need to. “Now that he’s back in town, he can take me on as a side client. When he’s out of town, we can have phone sessions.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Nothing for you to apologize for. You didn’t do anything wrong. Mom keeps apologizing, too, and I’m not even angry at her, if that sounds weird. I’m mad at my father for being a hoarder. I know that’s as irrational as hoarding is, but it’s how I feel. I see how happy Mom is now, and it sucks that she couldn’t find that happiness with the man she chose to stand beside all those years. Why he had to push us away with a mountain of garbage.”

She took a long, deep, shuddering breath. “But that’s in the past. And I need to learn to get past it. Becoming a mom sort of drove it all home for me a lot harder. Which is what Doyle’s going to try to help me with.” Essie forced a smile. “So when are we throwing Mal a baby shower? I thought we’d hear something from Chelbie by now.”

Cali thought about that. “You know, I haven’t seen either one of them online the past couple of days. I wonder if we’re holding a surprise shower or letting Mal in on it?”

“Chelbie had mentioned maybe a surprise party. But we talked before the Valentine’s Day party. I’ll need to ask her. She’s the one planning it.”

“True,” Cali said. “Chelbie’s her bestie.”

“Make sure someone talks to Tilly,” Essie said. “Find out her schedule. You know she’ll want to be there.”

“I’ll e-mail her once we talk to Chelbie,” Cali volunteered. “I know Tilly’s out of town right now. They’re not coming tomorrow night.”

“Aw.”

“Loren and Ross will be there.”

“Ooh. That’ll be fun.”

“Loren’s added Christmas trees to her hard limits.”

Essie laughed. “I bet that’s a first.”

“With this group? I wouldn’t be too sure.”

ADULT EXCERPT

 

He kissed the top of her head. “We love you, babe. You brought something into our lives we didn’t even know was missing.”

Before he knew it, she’d lowered the waistband of his shorts and had sucked his cock between her lips.

Like hell he’d fight her. He threaded his fingers through her hair and held on, slowly rocking his hips in time with her deliciously hot mouth.

“Oh, fuck, baby. Yeah.”

She slid her hands around to his ass, digging her fingers in, holding on tightly as she blew him, adding delicious, sweet pain to the pleasure she was giving him.

“Good grief,” Max said from behind him. “You talked her into it, huh?”

“No,” Sean gasped. “She did this all on her own.”

Cali let go with one hand and gave Max a thumbs-up before grabbing Sean’s ass again.

He wanted to hold on, but it felt too good. She was too good, knowing exactly how and where to lick and suck his cock, flicking her tongue along the slit, stroking the glans. It didn’t take him long before his balls drew up tight and he was shooting his load down her throat.

As he recovered, he stood there, holding her, her face pressed against his skin, stroking her hair.

Then he stared down at her, grinned, and dropped to his knees. She let out a squeak of protest as he grabbed her panties and yanked them down her legs. Then he shoved her thighs apart, pulled her forward in her seat, and started reciprocating.

Glad this is a leather chair.

He let out a startled yelp when he felt something touch his balls, and started to look back when Max grabbed him by the hair and shoved his face into her pussy again.

“Oh, no, you don’t. You keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t mind me.”

Now satisfied it wasn’t Baxter trying to take a swipe at his family jewels, Sean went back to work. With his legs hooked around Cali’s thighs and her hands buried in his hair, he flicked at her clit, laving his tongue up and town her labia, loving every moan she made and how she wiggled, tipping her hips to give him better access. Even slinging her legs over his shoulders.

Max worked Sean’s shorts lower and then Sean felt cool lube and a finger probing his ass, making him moan.

That made Cali moan in return.

It didn’t take Max long to start working his condom-clad cock into Sean’s ass, reviving interest in Sean’s cock.

“Yeah,” Cali gasped. “That’s so hot, watching you two.”

Sean closed his eyes and ate her out with gusto. No similes needed, because he set every ounce of energy he had toward making her feel good. Showing her how he felt about her.

Loving her.

He let out another groan as Max bottomed out inside his ass before he slapped Sean’s ass. “Yeah, buddy. You get to be the middle this morning.” Max’s fingers grabbed hold of Sean’s hips. “Enjoy, buddy. Make her come before I do, and maybe I’ll get you off a second time. Otherwise, you’re wearing a vibrating butt plug all day and you’ll be in fucking misery.”

Well, if that is how he wants to play it.

He circled her clit with his tongue before wrapping his lips around it and sucking hard. She squealed, which immediately turned into a long, low moan as she tipped over the edge.

“Aw, you fucker,” Max said. He buried his cock deep in Sean’s ass and reached around to start stroking Sean’s cock. “Guess it’s your lucky day.”

Now Sean was fucking himself back and forth between Max’s hand and cock, all while seeing if he could coax another one out of Cali. Sometimes, in the morning, they could get several out of her if they tried really hard, even though all of them were usually more of evening sex people than morning ones.

Meanwhile, Cali had a good handful of his hair, a tight grip on it that felt good in that hot sex sort of way he loved.

He loved this, them.

Everything about it.

Yes, there’d been some mornings they’d been late to work because they’d ended up having sex, the three of them.

Or one or both of them had taken her as soon as they’d walked in the door in the afternoon.

Why would he ever want to give this up? Any of it?

I don’t.

And that basically was the final nail in that argument.

“Come on,” Max coaxed. “Use that mouth on her. You know I love hearing you make her come for us.”

Another thing. Even though it was one or the other of them—usually, sometimes both at the same time—it was always still them.

She was theirs, just like they were hers.

Cali tipped over the edge again, and Max’s grip tightened on Sean’s cock. “Okay. Squeeze my cock with that ass of yours, buddy.” He started jacking Sean faster, harder, and Sean held onto Cali as he started fucking back against Max’s cock with gusto.

“Yeah, there’s my guy.” Sean felt the release building, a little slower this time because he wasn’t exactly a teenager anymore, but it didn’t hurt that Max’s cock, at that angle, was pressing against his prostate.

Who didn’t love a good cock in their ass?

He sure as hell did.

Cali leaned forward, stroking his hair now. “Come for us, baby,” she urged. “Give it to him.”

That did it. She always had that effect on him, whether it was the two of them tag-teaming him, or she and him ganging up on Max. Orgasm number two blasted out of him, coating Max’s hand with cum.

“There you go,” he grunted as he started moving again. He didn’t even bother wiping his hand off, grabbing Sean’s hip and fucking him hard and fast, grinding against his ass and working up to his own orgasm a few strokes later.

As they collapsed onto the office floor, Cali slid out of the chair to join them there on the carpet.

“Dude, you spooged me,” Sean mumbled.

“Technically you spooged yourself,” Max said, wiping his hand all over Sean’s back and making Cali laugh.

But he has made it is life’s mission to find this woman and pull her out of the depths of hell at whatever cost. She will be his save one way or another.

reviewfbknotty1

Anson is the third and final book in the Black Stallion Trilogy, which is a shame, because it’s been a pleasurable series to read.

This time, Anson finally gets to rescue the girl, a latina girl named Natalia that he wanted to save in the auction that he and his brother Stryder saved Zoya. Anson takes himself to Argentina to save Natalia, but finds that she’s not overly thrilled at the outcome. But the rescue doesn’t go as planned, and Anson and Natalia are stuck in Argentina with a price on their heads and no way out!

Like I said, it’s sad to see this series end. It would have been nice to have more books with other employees, ect. rescuing other women. (Maybe some local ones?) Though I’m still not sure about Jennie, sometimes I just want to throttle her. Being a person who suffers in tremendous pain everyday, I can tell you her herbal stuff doesn’t work. I’ll stick to my white man’s way thank you. (Maybe it’s because she’s high all the time?) I will say, she threw me for a loop with the barbecue. Sometimes, you gotta love that crazy gal.

EXCERPT:

Fuck, he might have been shot but he wasn’t dead. That became evident when her hand slid down his leg to slip beneath the outer covering that served as chaps for the gaucho pants he’d purchased to wear to the fair. His cock stirred as her fingers dipped into the deep pocket in the loose white pants. Anson grimaced, silently berating himself as he remembered exactly where she’d been for the past six months. Eyes the color of emeralds lifted to his and he also remembered how she’d slugged Montez.

“Bossy and might I say, you’ve got one heck of a right cross, Ms. Alvarez.”

She seemed surprised, a quick grin appearing before she said, “And don’t you forget it.”

“I’m not likely to forget anything about you,” he said, meaning every word.

Natalia rolled her eyes, pulling her hand free with the key in her grip. “You’re already becoming delirious. Let’s get you inside.”

Mastering The FanGirl by Ava Sinclair

Fangirl

Book Blurb:

Emma Holland didn’t expect a reply after she sent an anonymous email to her favorite author letting him know how much his books have meant to her, but Alden Fisher surprised her. He didn’t just write back, he wanted to get to know her better.

Fearful that a handsome, successful man like Alden could never be interested in a geeky fangirl like her, Emma created a fake profile to impress him. But as their relationship grew into an intimate, passionate online romance, Emma’s guilt grew as well, and when her shame became too great she disappeared from social media.

But Emma is about to discover that Alden is not content to let her write the ending to this story. He is determined not only to show Emma that he fell in love with the woman behind the profile, but to give her the correction and dominance he knows she both needs and craves.

He tracks Emma down and soon she is lying over his knee for the intense, painful spanking she has needed for so long.

Though she is shocked by Alden’s sudden return to her life, his firm discipline and loving guidance give Emma confidence she has never had before, and being claimed properly by him at last is better than she ever dreamed. But when a secret from his past threatens to tarnish Alden’s reputation, will the ensuing scandal destroy the bond Emma has built with the man who changed her life first with his books and then with his belief in her?

reviewfbknotty1

First off, let me just say if you are going to read this, you may want to have something to cool you down sitting nearby. However that may look for you. Because this book is quite steamy hot!

It starts with our heroine Emma engaging in an online relationship with author Alden Fisher. She craves his dominance, but when it starts to get too real for her, she disappears from his life. Lucky for her, he manages to track her down and surprise her. He wants to continue where they left off, and uses some underhanded means to get her to agree.

But a jealous co-worker and an ex of his manage to throw a wrench in the works that might just derail their relationship.

I loved this book a whole lot! The sex scenes were positively so smoking hot I needed to fan myself! I loved how Alden stood up for Emma and how he boosted her confidence, he’s what every man should be like, especially dominants. And both of them are broken in their own ways, especially Emma, but they manage to be each other’s support in such a wonderful way. This book is definitely a keeper!

Excerpt:

Prologue

May 2015

“Put your hands between your legs and spread the lips of your pussy.”

When there was no reply, his next question came quietly, but with the increased authority that made her tingle. “Are you doing it?”

She swallowed nervously. “Yes.”

“Close your eyes,” he instructed. “Move the forefingers of your other hand over your clit, but softly. Barely graze it. Move them lower, over the inner folds.” He paused. “Are you wet?”

“Y-yes.”

A sigh.

She’d been talking to him long enough to know his sighs as well as his words. This one indicated irritation.

“You aren’t doing it.” There was stern disappointment in his tone, and she wondered how he even knew, given there was an ocean between them.

She glanced over at the cell phone, her heart pounding as if the man behind the cool British accent might somehow jump out of the tiny speaker.

“No,” she admitted, hoping the speaker didn’t pick up her voice. But he’d heard her. Touching herself had never come easy for a woman who was raised to hate her own body. It had gotten easier, with him, and she loved it. But sometimes it was still difficult.

“When we are finally together next week, when we are more than just pictures to one another, I will punish you for this.” Another pause. “And for the other things on my list.”

She has no doubt that he meant it. Her pussy clenched with need, and she wondered if he’d give her permission to use the vibrator later. She glanced over at the computer on her desk, where his picture served as her background. It was a private picture—one he’d never made public on social media or used on the ‘About the Author’ section of his books. This was one he’d sent just to her. In it, he was standing against a stone wall, rolling hills of emerald green behind him. He wasn’t smiling, but he wasn’t frowning either. He looked thoughtful, intense. She liked this picture better than any other, not just because it was hers alone, but because whenever she looked at it, she was instantly drawn to the eyes. The gaze had always held her, and even now she fancied he was watching her as she obediently parted her labia with trembling fingers.

“Sir.” She breathed the word, then moaned a soft exhale of breath.

“Obeying now, are we? That’s my good girl.” Soft words of praise after the promise of discipline precipitated the shudder of her first small orgasm. She may not even need the vibrator; some nights she didn’t. Sometimes the memory of his words alone was enough to bring her off.

“I want you to spread those smooth lips of your pussy. Spread them wide. And I want you to shift your hips forward as you keep your legs apart. I want you to work your fingers up and down over your slick, wet inner labia. I want you to think of me as you do this. I want you to think of how I’ll have you seated just as you are, my hands underneath, cupping your smacked bottom, my tongue lapping away your sweetness as you open yourself to me like the good girl I know you can be.”

The wave was building again. Her eyes closed. Calling on her imagination was easy. She did it every day at her job, helping others visualize and bring messages to life. But this was so much better, imagining him—the man she’d longed for before she even knew him—possessing her, those elegant hands squeezing her buttocks as he tasted what was his.

“Don’t touch your clit.” She almost jumped in the chair, a chill running down her spine. She’d been about to, and moans of pleasure turned to little whimpers of frustration.

“Believe me, love. If I were between your legs, I’d be tasting everything but that. Your sweet, slick flesh would be the main course. Your delightful clit would be dessert. But only when I was ready.”

Her pussy pulsed at the description, her clit throbbing with the aching need to be touched. Her stocking-clad toes curled against the hardwood floor. He was touching her from a continent away, stroking her with his words.

“How wet is my sweet girl now?”

She threw her head back, her dark brunette curls spilling down the back of the chair. She could feel the arousal pulsing from her pussy. The chair seat beneath her was wet with it. She’d had six lovers in her life—actual physical lovers—and none of them had ever gotten her as hot as the man on the phone.

“So wet.” She moaned. “Please… can I come?”

“Now, now… you know better than that. Ask me properly. And correctly.”

He’s correcting my grammar? For some reason, this excited her even more. She was the naughty student to his professor, her favorite fantasy, and the first she’d confessed to him. She asked him properly.

May I come… sir?”

“My Kitty may come. She may touch her clit. Her finger is my tongue. Flick it… Mmmm…”

She obeyed, imagining looking down to see the top of his dark head between her legs, to see his thick dark hair. And this time when she came, she cried out so loud she worried the neighbors might have heard. But she was past caring, her back arching so hard that her bottom left the chair, the waves of pleasure so strong that they nearly took her breath away.

She felt suspended on a cloud of pure sensual bliss, and when she floated back down to sitting, she placed a hand on either side of the seat to steady herself.

“Kitty? Kitty?” His voice drifted back to her, calm, purposeful. “Pick up the phone.”

She reached over, fumbling on the table, picked it up, switched it off speaker mode, and pressed it to her ear. She could smell the arousal still coating her fingers.

“Sir,” she said. “I’m here.”

“That’s better,” he said. “Speakerphones are convenient, but there’s something so intimate about having you talk directly into the phone. I can imagine you, sitting in my lap, your lips pressed to my ear. I can almost imagine your warm breath tickling my earlobe as you speak the words in that lovely, lilting voice of yours.”

“Oh, sir…” She curled her feet beneath her and leaned her head against the chair’s railing. She imagined herself in his lap, and swallowed the sob of regret already forming in her throat.

“Did you get your ticket, Kitty?”

A pang, painful, centered in her chest. She glanced at the computer screen, at those intense eyes. She looked away. “Yes,” she lied. “I used my frequent flier miles.”

“I’d have happily paid for it.”

“It’s okay.” She tried to sound casual. “It didn’t cost me anything.”

“I respect that you want to be independent, but after today, I pay for everything. Understand?”

She nodded, swallowing, her finger tracing the top of her stocking. “Yes, sir.”

“You have all the information?”

“Yes.”

“Repeat it.”

She hoped he’d attribute the quaver in her voice to excitement. “Brookside Inn, Room 212, Victoria, British Columbia. I’m to be there at six in the evening on Saturday.”

“Good girl.” She heard the clink of ice in his glass. It was cocktail hour in the U.K. She knew that because he had told her of his regimented routine. Breakfast at seven—usually eggs over easy and toast with jam, although on Wednesdays he enjoyed a traditional English breakfast with sausage, baked beans, mushrooms, and half a tomato. Afterwards a brisk walk around his duck pond. Since they started talking, he’d treated her to several pictures of his small estate through all four seasons. Her favorite part was the pond. There was a bench by it, under a willow. Her most enjoyable daydream involved his sitting on that bench, her at his feet as the fall leaves swirled around them.

“Kitty?”

She startled. “Yes?”

“I cannot wait to see you. I cannot wait to run my hands through those auburn tresses, to spank your sweet little bottom until you beg me to stop and fuck you.” He grew quiet for a moment. “Two days, love. That’s all that stands between us now. Two days.”

“Two days. Yes.” The truth rose in her like a bubble, the pressure of it pressing against her from the inside. Her idealistic side sparred with her rational one.

Just tell him! He’ll understand!

Don’t be an idiot. He’ll never understand. He’ll hate you.

“I’ll see you then,” she said quietly.

“Yes. Until then. Goodbye, my little one.”

“Goodbye, sir.”

The soft click as he hung up might as well be a gunshot killing everything she’d ever wanted. She drew her knees up, hugged them to her, and sobbed. She wanted to curl up there, in that chair, and just fade away. But she couldn’t. She had to move on. She was hardly the first woman to do something stupid, to get carried away by her emotions. A mistake like this could only destroy her life if it was repeated. She’d consider this a lesson.

She rose and walked over to the computer, looking at his image on the screen. Each morning since she’d made his photo her screensaver, she’d look at it and imagine him saying something new. Now she imagined him saying, “Shame on you.”

She hastily clicked on the Safari web browser icon, pulling up the Facebook page that mercifully blocked out the picture of the man she’d never met in person but desperately loved. And now, staring at her instead was Kitty Klein, the fake name of the woman she’d been pretending to be.

“You’re the one he wants,” she said, staring at the profile picture of the auburn-haired beauty smiling from under a floppy straw hat.

A sob rose in her throat, one of those painful ones she knew would break with ragged rawness if she let it. She willed herself to force it back down.

“No!” Her tone was one of a self-loathing scold. “You don’t deserve to cry. You did this to yourself. You did this to him, too.”

It was harder than she ever imagined, going to her settings, clicking on the security link, and then choosing ‘Deactivate Your Profile.’

Are you sure? Facebook wanted to know—a safety net, just in case she changed her mind. Facebook reminded of her options, suggesting she simply hide the profile instead.

But she was sure. She couldn’t allow the temptation. She couldn’t allow the deception the existence of the profile represented. With the click of a button, the auburn-haired beauty she’d been impersonating was gone, vanished from social media without a trace.

Next she clicked on her email folder marked ‘Sir’ and deleted everything—from the first email she’d sent him, to the reply she’d not expected, to the most recent note telling her what time to call, and what to be wearing when she did.

The final step involved going to the website for QuikPhone, where she deleted her account and disabled the phone she’d bought just to talk to him. There was a box at the foot of her bed. She opened it, willing herself not to pick up the books inside, not to caress the creased covers or peek at the dog-eared pages filled with the highlighted passages that had inspired her, words that had saved her life, words that had made a total stranger her hero.

She’d read once that if you suddenly severed a limb, you’d not feel it at first. And that’s how she felt now. Numb. She knew that when the feeling came rushing back, it would be excruciating.

But the break had to be made. Tomorrow she’d take the box with the books and the phone to Goodwill. She’d drop it off, the last traces of her Almost Perfect Life gone forever. Then she’d wait for the blood to rush back into her heart, and begin the daily struggle of trying not to think of what might have been.

A Letter from Liliana Hart:

Dear Readers,

I’m thrilled to announce the MacKenzie Family World is returning! I asked four of my favorite authors to create their own characters and put them into the world you all know and love. These amazing authors revisited Surrender, Montana, and through their imagination you’ll get to meet new characters, while reuniting with some of your favorites.

These stories are hot, hot, hot and packed with action and adventure—exactly what you’d expect from a MacKenzie story. It was pure pleasure for me to read each and every one of them and see my world through someone else’s eyes. They definitely did the series justice, and I hope you discover four new authors to put on your auto-buy list.

Make sure you check out Spies and Stilettos, a brand new, full-length MacKenzie novel written by me. This will be the final installment of the MacKenzie series, featuring Brady Scott and Elena Nayal. After eighteen books of my own and nine books written by other bestselling authors in the MacKenzie World, it’s going to be difficult to say goodbye to a family I know as well as my own. Thank you for falling in love with the MacKenzies.

So grab a glass of wine, pour a bubble bath, and prepare to Surrender.

Love Always,

Liliana Hart

reviewfbknotty1

Jake ‘Harley’ Ryan is a member of HOT, Hostile Operations Team. He’s been called by Declan MacKenzie to go on an undercover rescue op. Back 7 years ago, Jake was an 18 year-old kid and a new member of The Brothers of Sin, a lethal, criminal biker gang. But a judge gave him a chance for a new life when he was sent to the military, now that judge is lying in a coma, his wife dead, all because of the Brothers and their leader, Brandon.

Jake is being sent in to protect their witness. Little does he know that he knows tattoo artist Eva Grey. She changed her look and her name, now she’s swearing vengeance, especially on Brandon, for the death of her sister 7 years earlier.

This was a regrettably short read, but was so, so, good! Very enjoyable and hard to put down. I just loved Eva and Jake’s chemistry and the suspense.

But she owes Jade Jax a favor and her friend’s calling it in. And the favor comes in a six-foot-two package of irresistible and wicked male. It’s just a translation job. She would help and maybe get to know the man for a day or two. What could go wrong?

reviewfbknotty1

Kirk Ryan is an NSA fixer. He’s called in by the MacKenzies on a low day for them all. Kirk swears retribution on their behalf. His op takes him to Bali, to stop a group of rogue SEALs from killing a group of Interpol reps and rescuing 3 of their own. He also has a GEM agent working with him, Suraya.

The two of them are on a race against the clock to help rescue the hostages and stop the missile from blowing up. They also are fighting their attraction to each other.

Loved this book! Gennita Low writes a wonderful and realistic military novel/novella every time, and this is no exception.

His Virgin Mate (Interstellar Brides: The Virgins, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

His Virgin Mate (Interstellar Brides: The Virgins, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

Date of Publication: March 16, 2017

Blurb

One look, one touch, and there is no denying the heat…

Alexis Lopez just turned twenty-one, her parents are dead, and life isn’t exactly what she’d hoped. Her lackluster response to men is just one problem she’s eager to solve by volunteering for the Interstellar Bride Program. Sharing sensual dreams with her new mate is just the beginning. One look at the large, dominant alien who claims she belongs to him sets her body on fire. When he tells her, in explicit detail, how he’ll claim her in every way, she is eager to give her mate everything, body and soul.

But things aren’t that easy. Von of Everis is a Hunter. After years fighting the Hive wars, he’s home, and one of the top ranking military police in his region. But his bed, and his life, are empty until Alexis arrives. One look at his innocent little bride and he knows she belongs to him, but that claim is challenged by one of the most feared warriors on the planet.

Stolen kisses and mind-numbing pleasure won’t save Von from a deadly duel. Falling in love with his new mate drives a tenderness he didn’t believe he would ever feel. But Von is a Hunter, a warrior, a protector, and someone is trying to take what belongs to him. Someone is using his mate to set a trap…

reviewfbknotty1

Hey Grace Goodwin fans! Grace has come out with a new series in the Interstellar Brides Coalition, and this time, it’s all about the virgins! I’ll be honest, virgin books can be a real hit or miss for me, usually because of the way the heroine behaves for one, and then there’s the hero and how he behaves towards said virginity. But this one was a good one!

In the first book of the series, we have our heroine, Alexis Lopez, or Alex for short. She’s 21 and she’s held on to her virginity because no one has interested her enough to want to give it up to. But when she goes to the testing center, she quickly matches and has erotic dreams about her new mate. She also finds out that the birthmark she has is significant to her mate and his race on Everis as well.

Alex quickly makes friends with two other women who match and have marks as well.When she gets to Everis, before her mate, Von has a chance to claim her, a Major named Cosmo decides that Alex is his. He hates Von, and will do anything to cause trouble.

Will Alex find out what it’s like to have the Everis “Claiming Sequence” fully fulfilled, or will someone take her from Von forever?

This was a truly enjoyable read from Grace, as are all of the Interstellar Bride books. I do admit, I have a bunch to catch-up on in the whole series, but I’m going to have a blast doing it! I just LOVE this series!

This book gets 5 Super Stellar Stars

About Grace Goodwin

Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead.

Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of.

She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.

Resisting My Submission (The Doms of Genesis) by Jenna Jacob


Synopsis

 

They say first impressions mean everything. Either Maximus “Max” Gunn didn’t get the memo or he didn’t care. The gorgeous, muscle-bound Dominant’s assumption that I, Mistress Sammie, was a submissive set my blood boiling. I wanted to drive the toe of my coveted Louis Vuitton stilettos between his legs—and bring him to his knees.

But anger wasn’t the only burning emotion Max ignited inside me. The potent sexual attraction we share threatened to burn me alive, too. Unwilling to cede our Dominance, the battle for control raged like a third world war, both in and out of the dungeon. It would take a coup d’état for love to conquer our drive to command.

But when Max learns the secrets of my past, and attempts to heal my scars, I don’t know if I’ll be able to still the battle…or fall willingly to my knees.

Release Blitz and Review! Cut Wide Open by Abby McCarthy

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.

reviewfbknotty1

Sometimes you read a book and it just stays with you. Then, you just HAVE to tell your friends about it, even the ones who don’t read. Because, the book, it’s just SO UNBELIEVABLY GREAT!!! Cut Wide Open by Abby McCarthy is THAT book.

This is about the story of Gunnar and Charlie. (Charlotte) They meet when Charlie is 8 years old and she lives across the street from Gunnar. Charlie doesn’t have a great life, and she grows up with Gunnar being her rock. But they end up separated for a long time, and when Gunnar finally finds her, a huge misunderstanding ends up leading to Charlie’s biggest nightmare. (There be triggers here.) Will they find each other again?

This was such an emotional, gut-wrenching story, but it also pointed out the power of long, abiding love. Gunnar is Charlie’s soulmate, and he loves her so much that he would go to the ends of the earth for her. There’s also some MC action here, and a wonderful cast of side characters that will make for awesome books in this series!! I can’t wait for the next one!!!

About Private Reserve:

Olivia was the best thing that ever happened to me. But she’s a good girl, and I have a side that is far too dark for a minister’s daughter. When she started talking about plans after graduation, the only thing I could do was run back to Italy—to protect her from me. But she’s back in my life, and I need a wife before I can take full ownership of our failing vineyard and hotel. Only problem is, I want her again. No way can I put my hands on her. One kiss, one taste, could unleash the side of me that would only scare her.

 

If she discovers my dark side, I don’t know if she’ll flee back to the states, or surrender to me. What she doesn’t know is she already owns me, and if she leaves, I’ll never be the same.

reviewfbknotty1

I have always been a big fan of Ms. Fox’s, so I jumped on the chance to read and review this novella. I most certainly am glad I did. Despite the fact that it was a short book, it was a super, sexy story.

Olivia Frasier is at a winery in Tuscany, sent by one of her friends by a dossier. 2 years prior, her and her friends decided that on the month of their 25th birthdays, someone would pull their name and make up a dossier and send them on a destination adventure and not come home until they’ve had epic sex. Olivia is still in a funk over her ex who broke her heart by leaving her 2 years ago. But fate intervenes when she finds out the soon to be owner of the estate is none other than Gio himself. And he’s got a sexy best friend who he’s in love with.

This short is so hot the scenes sizzle right off the pages. Gio is a steamy, dominant, alpha who wants Olivia and his best friend. You’ll certainly need a bucket of ice for this one!
