Savannah

Blurb:

Why can’t anything ever be easy?

When Special Agent Savannah North undertakes an unsanctioned mission to rescue her niece from a human trafficker, she is forced to rely on the man she’d hoped to never see again. The only thing that stings more than his rejection two years ago is the lash of the flogger now. Can she protect her heart long enough to finish the job?

Landon Nixon has always regretted walking away from Savannah after their last assignment, but she’d been much too innocent—and dominant—for what he’d wanted from her. Now she needs a Dom to train her, and he realizes nothing was what it seemed. Will he be able to let her go again?

Avery Gale…Just saying her name makes me smile, and knowing she has a book coming out makes me kind of giddy, But I was a bad, bad girl and didn’t write the release date of this one down so I ended up buying this one a few days after it came out. Hopefully, one or two of those Mountain Mastery doms are available to make me see the error of my ways! *wink*

 

This is the second book in the Mountain Mastery series, which is a spin-off of sorts of the Morgan Brothers Series. And, a smaller spin-off of the Prairie Winds series. (I love those West brothers, and Tobi, who all make an appearance here!) We have agent Landon Nixon who is not so happy that he’s going to be working with agent Savannah North. Her goddaughter has been kidnapped by a dangerous cartel who deals in sex slavery, and Savannah has volunteered to play a slave to get herself into a ‘party’ where she knows she’ll be. But Savannah just may surprise Landon, because he turned her down in the past for a few reasons, one because he didn’t think she was a submissive. But she has 2 weeks to show him otherwise.

 

This was a fantastic story and I finished it in one setting. Savannah was as feisty as Tobi West, and just as fun. Of course, the Wests get involved, and there’s even a trip to Prairie Winds. Just another incredible book by Avery!

Reeling from the death of her daring Navy SEAL brother, reserved McKenzie Prescott decides to honor him in the only way she can think of–by finishing his bucket list.

Brynley Blake is a new author to me, but after reading Rogue, she is now firmly in my list of favorites! Wow! This book was a thrill from the get-go, and learning that this was the beginning of a series? I’m hooked! I stayed up the entire night to finish this, because once I started, I didn’t put it down.

 

McKenzie Prescott is a nice, boring girl who has decided to honor her brother’s legacy by completing the items on his bucket list. Her brother Liam was a Navy SEAL who was her complete opposite, and died during a rescue mission in the Middle East. But, she’s shot at while diving off a waterfall. Figuring it’s a fluke, she heads off to Vegas where she meets Noah Payne. Noah is an ex-SEAL whose wife and daughter are killed by a drug kingpin, and all he lives for is revenge. McKenzie is surprised to see Noah again when she goes to complete another item on her bucket list, but is it because he wants to help her or himself?

 

These two have the best chemistry I’ve seen in ages! I positively loved this book so much that if I could give it more than 5 stars I would! I am positively hooked on this series and can’t wait for the next one to come out. Ms Blake has created a series that will be talked about for years to come, with magnetic characters that jump off the pages. Simply excellence!

Shameless by M. Malone and Nana Malone

I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector…a killer…I am Noah Blake.

There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am…an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore…usually.

It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak…shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.

But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else…

Review

First off, be aware that this ends on a cliffy as I call them. That’s because this juicy goodness from M. Malone and Nana Malone is told in a trilogy of books. I’m not always crazy about that format, and I usually wait until all of the books are out first, but Noah sounded like such a hottie I couldn’t resist.

 

This falls under the ‘Best Friend’s Sister’ trope, and it’s a good one. Lucia is still mourning the loss of her brother, who was killed 6 years earlier. She’s determined to get to the answer of who killed him. Noah is her brother’s best friend. He owns a security company, and is doing his level best to keep Lucia from digging into her brother’s death, because the more she digs, the more danger she is in. He also wants her, but is determined to keep away. You know, the old ‘I want her, can’t have her, she’s too good for me” and so on. The sparks fly and oooh wait for it….big cliffy at the end! Despite that? Loved it!! And so will you!

Excerpt 1

Brent interjected. “I should probably be going.”

Lucia gripped his forearm harder. “No. Stay. Noah is going. Aren’t you Noah?”

Noah grinned, his devilish smile bringing a mischievous twinkle to his eyes. Looking at the two of them in close proximity, Lucia could see clearly that there was no competition. Noah had dark sooty lashes that framed those intense whiskey-colored eyes, high cheekbones, a straight Roman nose, and full lips that tilted crookedly when he smiled. The man was gorgeous and he knew it. Which was a problem. Because he often used it to get what he wanted.

Brent, in comparison, also had dark hair, but not as dark as Noah’s. It also didn’t fall in disarray where some parts looked styled and other parts unkempt, but mostly looking like he’d just rolled out of bed. Or he’d rolled out of bed with someone. Brent’s eyes were a pale blue. Kind. He was cute in that boy-next-door, All-American kind of way. He didn’t look like he belonged in a fashion magazine, not like Noah did.

Feeling a little uncharitable comparing Brent so unfavorably with Noah, she had to concede that he was at least tall. Not as tall as Noah, but few men could compare to Noah’s towering height. Besides it wasn’t about looks, or height, or charisma, anyway.

Annoyed with herself, Lucia closed her eyes, hoping maybe this was all a bad dream, but when she opened them again Noah was still there. With him in the room, it was hard to breathe. He dominated and sucked up all the air, silently pulling her towards him with his gravitational force alone. It was like poor Brent wasn’t even there.

“Now, Lucia, I know you’d like to think you’re in charge right now. But you’re not. You don’t know this guy. And you invited him back to your place? I thought I taught you better than that.”

Brent tried to make an escape again. “Lucia, why don’t you deal with this guy? And we’ll try this again later.”

“No. You’re not going anywhere.”

Noah pushed himself to a seated position. “Oh yes he is. Because, you and I need to discuss what the hell this is for.” He held up the party gift from the bachelorette party.

Oh no. Oh no. Oh no.

In that moment, Lucia prayed to every saint her grandmother had ever forced her to pray to. Prayed to the Virgin Mary then to Jesus. Heck, for good measure, she added Buddha in there too. Just in case. But nothing happened. The ground did not open and swallow her.

Instead, she stood with her hand on Brent’s arm, staring at Noah as he held up the largest purple dildo she’d ever seen in her life.

Brent’s mouth fell open but no sound came out. As mortified as she was, Lucia couldn’t really blame him. The stupid thing was over a foot long, and thick. Really, really thick. Like thicker than a cucumber. She’d certainly never used the thing. It was a gag gift.

“How dare you go through my things!” she squeaked.

Noah shrugged. “I didn’t go through your things. The drawer was open. The thing was practically sticking out of it. Making its escape.”

Next to her, Brent shifted his gaze to her.

“That’s not mine,” she whispered. “I m-mean it is but I’ve never used it. It’s a gag gift from a bachelorette party.” She swung her gaze to Noah. “Put that down.”

“Not a chance. I mean, this thing is fascinating. I’m no stranger to toys myself. As far as I’m concerned, they can always enhance the situation. I’m not one of those guys that feel jealous or threatened. Matter of fact, I’m all for a little solo play. But this thing.” He held it up and shook it around. “Even I’ve never seen anything like it. And I’ve had a lot of practice.”

He turned his attention to Brent. “No disrespect to you, but I don’t think you can live up to this. It vibrates and rotates! Even I feel a little frightened by this thing.”

Screw the ground opening up and swallowing her whole. Just shoot her now. That would end this quickly. Shoot her. Send her little behind to heaven. Because she was done. Noah was bending the dildo around as it wiggled in his hands. He pushed the button, and the damn thing rotated on its own, making a whirring sound. Oh God. Could this get any worse?

Brent fixed his gaze on her. “I’m going to go.”

“No, please don’t go.”

She lunged and grabbed at the dildo, tugging when Noah refused to release it. The silicone material bent in ways Lucia was sure it wasn’t intended to as they fought over it. This was easily one of the most undignified moments of her life but she just couldn’t take it anymore. Noah’s smug face as he watched her struggling to get a better grip on the wiggling, gyrating piece of plastic only made it worse.

“Ugh, let go!”

In a fit of sudden anger, Lucia kicked him in the shin. And in his surprise, Noah let go of his end of the toy. The next few seconds would forever play in her mind in slow motion as she watched the toy fly end over end and hit Brent directly in the face.

“Ouch!”

Lucia covered her mouth in horror as the toy fell to his feet. The silence that followed was only broken by the sounds of the still-running toy, wiggling over the carpet.

Noah guffawed. “My bad. Did I get it in your mouth? Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean anything. What’s a little dick in the mouth between friends, am I right?”

I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan. New York is now my kingdom.

Back in Britain my family are fighting over who’s the next Duke of Fairfax. The rules say it’s me–if I’m married. It’s not a trade-off worth making. I could never limit myself to just one woman.

Or so I thought until my world is turned upside down. Now, the only way I can save the empire I built is to inherit the title I’ve never wanted — so I need a wife.

To take my mind off business I need a night that’s all pleasure. I need to bury myself in a stranger.

The skim of Scarlett King’s hair over my body as she bends over . . .

The scrape of her nails across my chest as she screams my name . . .

The bite of her teeth on my shoulder just as we both reach the edge . . .

It all helps me forget.

I just didn’t bargain on finding my one night stand across the boardroom table the next day.

She might be my latest conquest but I have a feeling Scarlett King might just conquer me.

A sexy, standalone romance.

Enforcers Embrace (Southern Supernatural Alphas 2) Sara Anderson

enforcer

Blurb:

Logan Grant is a protector and enforcer for the Wolf Creek pack. He and his partner, Ash Cooper, keep the darkness away from the innocent humans and lycans living in the pack lands. Logan never imagined he’d fall for a human female, but when he met Emily Mullen, she stole his heart and made his wolf howl to claim her. Fear of losing her held Logan back, despite Ash urging him to mate her so they could all bond together. Instead, Logan pushed her away, thinking that would keep her safe. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Emily could feel Logan was pushing her away and keeping a part of himself secret from her. She’d tried to make it work, but finally she decided it was over between them. She had a secret of her own and decided to leave for a while to see the country and get over losing Logan.

Alone and far from home, Emily realizes someone is hunting her. She runs back to Logan and Ash, but is it too late? Logan and Ash have powerful enemies, and one in particular has vowed to take what they love away from them. They never imagined that would mean they would go after Emily.

If their enemies succeed, their lives will be destroyed forever.

First, let me apologize to Sara Anderson for not posting this review much sooner. I honestly thought I had already posted it. Bad Fibrofog, Bad!

Enforcer’s Embrace is the second in the Southern Supernatural Series, and I noticed something between this series and her Wild Mountain Shifters series…these wolves are a heck of a lot more dominant, more intense, just more! *whispers* And I kinda love it.

When we start our book off, Emily is scooting out of town. She’s pregnant, and Logan pretty much is avoiding her, plus she’s attracted to his roommate. As she makes herself scarce, Logan returns from being away and doing his enforcer job. Emily believes he’s a contractor who works with the police on occasion. He’s very unhappy his mate has left, his roommate, also his second, and Emily’s other mate, is pretty unhappy with how Logan has handled everything. He also comments that Logan should have knocked her up, then she would have been part of the pack. Logan was apparently trying to.

I had to stop there for just a minute because that part made me really angry. Shifter books do seem to have that mating right away imperative which, not crazy about but ok. However, I don’t agree with impregnating a woman without letting her in on it.

10 months later, Emily is back thanks to a text sent by someone saying her grandmother is ill. Just not true. Her brother makes her tell Logan about the baby, but when…nah, I think I’ll let you read it yourself. There’s lots going on in this book, with bad coyotes, even worse vampires, kidnapping, and lots of yummy dominant sex.

While I’ll admit the ‘get the little woman pregnant’ ploy was just plain old stupid on Logan’s part, (and Ash’s for suggesting it.) Not to mention what they had her do in the woods. (Nope, go read the book.) I really loved the book. Sara is just a great storyteller, and I just love her books even if the heroes are sometimes over the top.

Excerpt:

Logan leaned in and brushed a tender kiss across her lips. “I owe you a huge apology for how I behaved last year.”

Emily opened her mouth to forgive him again as relief swamped her, but Logan placed a finger over her lips.

“No, pet, do not simply say it’s okay and forgive. I distanced myself from you because I was afraid. There are things going on that you don’t understand yet. Once you know about those parts of me, there is no going back.”

“I don’t understand. What do you mean ‘no going back’?”

Logan leaned in and kissed her neck. “I promise to tell you everything soon, but first Ash felt left out last night. What do you say we include him today?”

Did Logan read her thoughts or something? She’d just been thinking about him and now Logan wanted her to include him? Emily squirmed as liquid heat started to drip from her entrance. No, she was not getting hot for two men in a restaurant. No.

“Emily,” Logan said with a voice that was full of command. “I can see that you are aroused by the idea of Ash and me. Either say your safe word, or spread your legs and hook your feet around the legs of the chair.” Logan’s hand stroked up her leg until he reached her soaked channel. He gathered her cream and softly stroked her clit.

Emily gasped. “Logan!” He’d played with her pussy in that kink bar, Sinister, several times, but others were getting off as well. Here a bunch of men were eating and drinking. She looked around and thought she saw she was getting side glances a lot.

Ash leaned in and Emily’s heart did a double take at how he firmly grabbed her thigh. “I suggest you be a good girl and listen to your Master. It would be fun for me to fuck you right here, but you may be a bit embarrassed.”

Emily gulped. “Here?” Emily closed her eyes as Logan stroked his finger over her clit, and Ash moved his hands over her aching breasts. She didn’t doubt now that they would bend her over right here with the way they were touching her.

Ash nodded. “I’ve seen it done with a misbehaving subbie. This is pack-owned, and packs share. We don’t see sex the same way you do. We will fuck our mates wherever we please, and if others watch, so be it.”

“Pack-owned? What is that?” Emily asked as she spread her legs wider and made sure her skirt covered her properly.

“Yes, pack-owned. You will know everything soon, but for right now, I may have texted a few enforcers and told them there would be an encore to last night’s show.”

“Last night?” Emily breathed out as she felt a blush go from her chest to her hairline.

“Mm hm. Tell me, Emily. What do you think about having two men fuck you at once?” Ash asked.

“Two men?” Emily shook her head but fresh cream coated her entrance and her ass clenched at the thought of having both of them. Logan chuckled, pulled his hand free, and licked her cream from his fingers.

Emily watched and moaned at the jolt of arousal that shot through her. She’d refused to think about Ash since she was with Logan, but she’d wanted him as well. Now he was here, and he started stroking her leg and moving closer to her pussy.

Logan gripped her chin, pulled her face to him, and lowered his lips to hers. Ash’s fingers swept over her wet folds, and she jumped.

Logan lifted slightly. “What’s your safe word?”

“Red, Master.”

“Good. When you come, I suggested you stay perfectly still and not make any sound. My fellow enforcers have sensitive hearing, and we may end up with a buffet with you as the main treat.”

ADULT EXCERPT

Emily gasped as Ash’s fingers plunged into her and he rubbed her clit. Logan reached over and pinched her nipple as he kissed her again. His lips tasted of coffee and cinnamon roll as his mouth took possession of hers.

Logan was gentle this morning instead of the vengeful interrogator he’d been last night. They both teased her until she was ready to scream, but she didn’t want all the others to know what was going on or for them to feast on her. She fisted one hand on Ash’s leg and one on Logan’s and whimpered into Logan’s mouth as her need grew.

Emily’s hips lifted to try and get more from Ash as he gently stroked and pushed into her. Her head fell back as Logan and Ash both pinched her nipple and clit at the same time, and she exploded. She shook as waves of cataclysmic bliss engulfed her, but she couldn’t cry out. She bit her lip as she breathed through the pleasure swamping her.

Emily blinked and looked over at Logan. Just past him, one of the men was stroking his own cock as he watched them. Embarrassment burned her face. How many others noticed?

Logan captured her chin and caught her gaze. “Now how about you return the favor to Ash?”

“Return it how?” Emily asked, although she already had a good idea. She looked around and felt her face starting to blush again.

Logan stroked her lips and gently shoved her toward the floor. “Ash would like to feel your lips around him.”

Emily glanced at Ash. His eyes were half-lidded as if she already had his cock in her mouth. “Here? Now?”

“Yes,” Logan said without a trace of humor. “Show these enforcers who your Masters are.”

Emily had a strange feeling as if she was proving to all these men in the room that she wanted Logan and Ash. “Is this because I left?”

Logan nodded. “In a way, yes. None of them can say you don’t want me and Ash.”

Emily slid from the chair to kneel before Ash. She may end up in jail after this, and hopefully Logan would bail her out, but she would follow his instructions. She slipped Ash’s sweatpants down and pulled his hard cock free. It was about as long as Logan’s but thicker. Did Logan say she was going to have them both at once? They’d split her in two! She licked the rim of the head of Ash’s cock and then smiled at his intake of breath as he fisted her hair.

This was much more fun than she thought it would be. She quickly learned how to make Ash shudder and thrust his hips forward. When he threw his head back and moaned, Emily took his cock fully into her mouth. She gripped his cock with her hand and stroked him as she sucked him down as far as she could without gagging.

“Fuck, Logan. Why did you wait so long to claim her?” Ash thrust his hips forward and Emily swallowed to keep from gagging. Ash groaned loud enough Emily was sure everyone heard. Her pussy once again began to drip nectar at the thought of everyone watching her.

“I’m coming,” Ash whispered between clenched teeth.

Logan’s hand joined Ash’s. “Swallow him down, Emily. Let his scent fill you and accept him as your Master as well.”

Jungle Rapture (Jaguar Queens 1) by M.A. Jewell

junglerapture1l__43994.1493178634.300.450

Product Description

The Jaguar Queens, 1

An advocate for endangered species, journalist Kelsi Gorman travels to the Brazilian Amazon to locate a mysterious black jaguar the size of a saber-toothed tiger. Instead, the enormous cat finds her knee deep in mud, blood, and smugglers. 

Jaime Salazar, one of a few surviving male jaguar shifters, encounters a scent he never thought to find—a female jag shifter. Jag queens exist only in the elder’s stories, but someone staked out a she-cat like poacher bait. 

In a fit of primal instinct, Jaime marks Kelsi as his mate. Now, no other female will arouse him. To avoid a long celibate life, he is forced to woo his reluctant mate-to-be. But first he must keep her alive.

KG Logo

Jungle Rapture is the first book in the Jungle Queens series written by M.A. Jewell, who is a new author to me. I’m awfully glad I picked up this book, and the only negative thing I have to say is that I was bummed that it was so short. (It’s one of Evernight’s Reading On The Go books). Shifter books are a genre that I’ve only gotten into over the past couple of years, and it’s a very fluid world other than they shift and want mates. Ms Jewell has written a richly, lush world for her story and I was so impressed with the detail and the characters.

We pretty much deal with Kelsi Gorman and Jamie Salazar for the entirety. Kelsi finds herself in quite a bit of trouble with some poachers at the beginning of the book. Jamie is a black jaguar shifter who is trying to keep his identity secret, both as the giant black jaguar he is, and who his human side is. So he helps Kelsi out, but as a jaguar, until he has no choice but to reveal himself to her, because after all, she’s his mate.

However, Kelsi has no clue who or what she is, and doesn’t believe or want Jamie as a mate. But after a day of violence, Kelsi has her eyes opened, but will she choose Jamie, or leave him?

I was completely riveted to this book, and was close to having a bit of a bratty foot stomping moment because there wasn’t any more book to read. You’ll definitely want to check this one out, and I’ve found myself a new author to love

Excerpt:

Jaime stayed silent in the face of her outburst. With a deliberate nod, he stood. She guessed him to be about six-foot-four. He toed off rubber boots that appeared way too small then lowered the zipper of his pants. Kelsi gasped before looking pointedly at the damp earth.

“I must disrobe or go naked the rest of our hike. Don’t look away. It’s essential you know me as I am.”

Kelsi jerked a nod. Her sanity rode on this next minute. His pants dropped to his feet, and he stepped from them. Her gaze followed the perfect, masculine form of his calves to his thighs. She gasped again. Still seated, she got a full frontal of the healthy weight at his groin.

Uncut, interesting. She forced herself to look him in the eye. The half-grin returned. He may be some unearthly, were-something, but he was still a typical man.

Jaime dropped to a prone position. “I’ll lie still in cat form. So you feel safe.”

“That’s thoughtful.” Kelsi couldn’t keep the sarcasm from her voice. Likely, he played her like some pervert exhibitionist. Although, he did have goods worth looking at.

“Remember, I cannot harm you. You are—special.”

Before she could ask what he meant, Jaime grimaced. His body shimmered with a dark light that grew beyond his form. The nimbus cast a beast shape around his body, darkened further, then melted away.

Kelsi’s strangled yelp cut the air. She scrambled back from the massive jaguar lying in Jaime’s place. Black Beauty. The cat settled his muzzle on his front paws and raised amazing blue eyes to her. True to Jaime’s word, the beast didn’t move a muscle.

Kelsi froze in wonder. If the dart drug did this, she’d know eventually. But wow, what a ride! Her knees sank into the damp earth as she crawled on all fours to the cat.

“Hi there, Black Beauty. Such a pretty boy.”

The lush fur, so close, called to her. As Jaime predicted, the jaguar’s sedate manner gave her a sense of safety. Ferns near his nose quivered in time with his regular breaths. She reached a hand to his neck and slid fingers into his pelt. Aside from leaning into her touch, the animal didn’t move.

Kelsi edged closer. She reveled in the nearness to the great cat. Like a child who couldn’t stay away from a fluffy kitten, she ruffled his ears then leaned in to nuzzle his fur. His luscious scent further soothed, melting away any remaining angst.

“Thank you for saving me,” she whispered. Fully into the fantasy, or her delirium, she lay next to him and stroked his side.

Black Beauty blinked and lifted his face to hers. He flicked his whiskers before the tip of his tongue dabbed her nose.

She giggled. A visceral part of her wanted the magnificent animal to accept her touch. All those times the big cats approached her—unusually interested in her over the other zookeepers—she’d yearned to tousle their ears or ruffle their fur. Logic never allowed her to indulge.

Petting the cat, she couldn’t help the smile that split her face. “You’re amazing.”

White light rose from the jaguar’s form enveloping her hand. While the glow hid his body, fur turned to bare skin under her touch. The halo of light receded. With that same knowing, half-smile, Jaime propped his head on a raised elbow and turned to his side. “So are you, anjo.”

His arousal lay prominent, front and center, along his abdomen. Kelsi’s mouth froze in an “O”. A beat too late, she yanked her arm to her own personal space. Heat flushed her cheeks and other hidden parts.

Dangerously Bad by Eden Bradley

Being bad never felt so good…

Duff Stewart has two specialties: restoring vintage motorcycles and doing bad things to beautiful girls at New Orleans’s most notorious BDSM club. And there’s no girl he’d rather be with than the stunning Layla Chouset.

Layla has sworn off relationships with Dominant men, but there’s something about the gorgeous Scotsman, and he is determined to win her heart. She may agree to submit to his every want and desire, but can she submit to love…?

Review

I get big time excited when Eden Bradley has a new book out, because for people like me, she’s a goddess. I’m a subbie and not afraid to say it, while I don’t mind reading BDSM books written by authors not in the lifestyle, I do prefer it. Eden knows what she’s writing about, which makes the experience for me as a reader, writer, blogger and yes, a sub, way more satisfying.

So, I excitedly dove into the book and then I stopped. The brakes went on for a couple of reasons. One, I’m not a fan of interracial books where it’s the woman. And it’s not because i’m racial, it’s because I put myself in the characters place, so that just turns it off for me. Then, the biggest reason…Layla is a Domme. That usually makes me just toss the book aside and be done with it, and when it’s the “male dom converts female domme into sub” storyline, I usually stay as far away from the book as I can, BUT this is Eden Bradley, so I decided to keep on going with it. I’m very glad I did.

Eden did a fantastic job with recent Scotland transplant Duff Stewart, cousin to Jaime. A hot Scot in a kilt with a killer bod and a brogue? Um, yeah. You can bet I’d convert from a domme, a vanilla chick, even a nun, to get my hands on Duff. Luckily, our Domme doesn’t take most of the book to decide to submit to Duff. (another of my toss the book reasons) Smart girl. The scenes the two of them have are so hot I needed the AC cranked on high. Eden writes incredible sex scenes. Once again, I’m just blown away.
