Review:

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

A few words for the heroine. She is everything you are expecting her to be when you read the title of her book. She developed a lot in this book and I liked that she went for what she wanted and didn't let anyone dictate her life. She did a few unexpected things that are good for her and were a pleasant surprise for me. I am not a fan of the name Viktor, but I was a fan of the man.  He was the best match for Sophia and I would have liked to see them working together in order to bring the bad guys down.

The flow of the story was good and I read the book quickly. I liked the pace and the main and secondary characters and I will continue reading the series. The little tease for the couple of the next book was more than enough to solidify my decision on that. Setta Jay is a new to me author and I hope that the rest of her books are just as good as this one. As you can guess, I would recommend the book.



Mercenary Princess Eyes Teaser.jpg


Excerpt:


With all attention currently off her, she raised her glass again and allowed her gaze to drift in Viktor’s direction. She held the glass suspended at her lips as their eyes connected. Even with the distance and his dimly lit seating area partially obscuring her view, she felt a shot of electricity slide over her skin, sending tingles of awareness coursing through her body. How was that kind of chemical attraction even possible? She’d lusted after him for years, but to be on the receiving end of his bold appraisal was something very different and far too enticing. It made her crave something she couldn’t have. Viktor was seductive in a way no man should be. He lounged in a chair, his long legs stretched before him, and all she could think about was climbing over those strong thighs and straddling him before ripping his shirt open and using his body. It didn’t matter that he was surrounded by men and women, to whom he paid no attention, or that armed, tattooed guards stood at the private stairs going to his section and beside his leather seat. She groaned mentally. Having him in her sphere was rapidly becoming a harsh lesson in frustration. The space between their VIP alcoves could have spanned an ocean, and they’d have been more likely to interact. There was enough firepower between his guards and her own to ensure their worlds could never collide. A “prim” princess of a small country and a ruthless Russian billionaire with a dark history—it was definitely not a match for the storybooks.

Excerpt:


He kissed her again, keeping his hands on her face even though he wanted to touch her all over.
“Thank you for telling me. Thank you for trusting me. You know that I will never hurt you like that, right?”
She nodded. “Yes, and no.”
He frowned. “Yes, and no?”
Isabelle pushed at the furrow in his brows with one finger and smiled, her hazel eyes filled with humor. “I know you would never control me like Bram did. And I will never be afraid of you like I was him.” She met his eyes. “But you have the ability of hurting my heart, Zane. I think that’s why I left two years ago. I think that’s why I got involved with Bram.”
“What are you saying?”
“I knew I would never fall in love with Bram. I thought I could love him but not be in love with him. Does that make sense?”
He nodded.
“But you…I knew that you could take my heart, and I’d never get it back. It scared me.”
“Oh, Isa.” Doesn’t she know that it’s the same for me with her?
Zane kissed her again, but this time, he didn’t stop himself from touching her. He thumbed her nipple and pinched it, tugging on it until she moaned in his mouth.
He trailed his hand down her stomach and in between her legs. She immediately opened herself for him, and he pushed his middle and ring fingers inside her.
“Damn, Isa, your pussy is so wet.”
She was also swollen and hot. The spongy part inside her was at least twice as large as normal. He rubbed his fingers over the area, and she came on his hand, flooding him with her scent and arousal.
“Holy shit.” He’d never seen anyone get off that fast. Not even himself when he had been a teenage boy.
She clutched at his shirt, almost blindly, trying to tear at it.
“Isa, Isa, hold on.”
He got up on his knees and pulled his shirt over his head. Before he was even done, Isabelle was reaching for his jeans.
She seemed uncoordinated though. She couldn’t get the button through the tab, and her eyes were feverish. He put his hand on hers to still it.
“It’s okay. I’ll get it. It’s okay.”
“Hurry, please.”
Zane backed up until his feet hit the floor. He pushed his jeans and boxers down and kicked them off. He grabbed her legs and rotated her to face him. He clutched both her thighs in his palms and pulled her toward him when her scent exploded all over the room.
He took a step back from the force of her hormones surging.
Isabelle moaned, a combination of pain and arousal, and Zane watched as her wetness leaked down her pussy and over her the inside of her thighs. His own cock was hard as stone, and pre-cum leaked out of him and dripped down his shaft.
He whipped his head up toward the door as he heard someone yell, “Holy shit,” from the other room, and then there was the sound of glass breaking.
As if in slow motion, Zane looked back at Isabelle.
Her heat was here.
He stepped back between her legs and dropped his hands on either side of her face.
She blinked up at him, almost as if her eyes hurt even though the lights were off in the room.
“Your heat’s here, Isa. I’m giving you one chance to turn back. Are you sure you want me to take you?”

She dropped her knees to the side. “I’m sure, Zane. Take me. Make me yours.”

Blog tour: Dirty, Reckless Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor #3) by Lexi Ryan

LOVE_BLOG TOUR.jpg
















Dirty, Reckless Love by Lexi Ryan Release Date: August 14, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance


dirty_amazon


I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .
Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away.
I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him.
Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.
I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed.
I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. It may be the very thing that could destroy us.

Review:

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

I have been waiting for this book since the very first time I saw Levi and Ellie together. I started reading it as soon as I could, but I had to stop at some point because I couldn't take it anymore. It's rare, but I was willing to move past the scene where Ellie and Colton are having sex because it happened in a flashback (but still, who wants to read that, right?). I was willing to accept all the (pointless) flashbacks and just keep reading. Around 60% I gave up because I realized that Ellie was in love with Colton. Even without all her memories, the feelings were there. And there was a scene where she confused Levi with Colton in her sleep that I didn't like. The flashbacks range from the first time Levi and Ellie met, 3 years ago to the day Colton beat her. They took up precious space that could have convinced me that Ellie and Levi could have a good relationship because 90% of the book Ellie is all about Colton and she is always trying to protect him. I realized that I wanted a big time jump where Ellie was away from Levi and on a journey where she was trying to find who she truly was. That could have convinced me that she had real feelings for Levi and she wasn't just in love with him because he was there. I was very disappointed with this book and I do hope that the next will be better. Molly and Braden already have some history and I want to know what their journey will be. I hope we won't waste too much time on other people this time. 


Excerpt:
The man searches my face. “That’s why you won’t come home. You’re afraid of Colton.” “I don’t want anything to do with that life.” He exhales heavily and rolls his shoulders back, as if he’s trying to shake off a ghost. “That’s not fair to the rest of us. To everyone who loves you, everyone who was sick with worry when they put you into that coma. Not. Fucking. Fair.” I shrug. “Maybe losing a child and almost dying has made me a little selfish.” His gaze drifts down to my stomach, and I cover it with my hand without thinking. “I’m sorry about the baby.” I nod, tears springing to my eyes. “Me too.” So sorry. “I understand if you want to live here now, but don’t cut us out. We all lost something that night.” “Did you?” He narrows his eyes. “You think I didn’t care? That this was all some game to me, and losing you was nothing?” I wrap my arms around my chest, as if the pressure might weaken this force pulling me toward him by the solar plexus, this inexplicable need to be closer and let him wrap me in his arms. “Losing me? When was I ever yours to lose?” He jerks his gaze away from me, slides off his stool, and downs the rest of his beer. “Thanks. I guess that clears up where we stand after everything.” I open my mouth to apologize but swallow the words and meet his steady gaze. Then he backs away and grabs his bags off the bar. He pulls an envelope from his pocket and hands it to me. “I was going to leave this for you with the barista next door, but I guess I can save myself the trouble.” “What is it?” I ask, staring at the crisp black calligraphy that reads Ellie Courdrey. “An invitation to Ava and Jake’s wedding. Despite what you seem to think of me, I’m not fucking my future sister-in-law.” “Their wedding?” He nods. “They thought about canceling after everything, but . . .” He stares at me for a long beat. “They decided to put love first.” That feels like a jab. At me? At them? I don’t know. “I don’t want to go back there.” “Maybe it’s not always about what you want.” He shrugs as if it’s no different to him either way, but I can tell by the tension in his shoulders that it matters a lot. He steps forward—too close—and I let him, closing my eyes at his scent. Then a flash. He’s over me. The weight of him presses into my hips, his calloused hands holding my face, his fingers in my hair. “You’re sure?” I nod. Slide my hands down his back and lift my hips. “Yes. Please.” He searches my eyes. “No regrets.” I hold on to the memory of this man, wanting to examine it, to figure out what it means, but I’m too distracted by his closeness in this moment. He’s big. Strong. Warm. He lowers his mouth to my ear. “I never stopped loving you. Even when you told me to. Even when you chose him.” And then he walks away. blog tour (23)

Synopsis
There’s no turning back…
The second I spared Isabel’s life, everything changed. I used to deal in death wishes. Now the instinct to protect her charts the course. Because every time I turn away from her, something turns me back. She’s uncovered a side of me that I can no longer ignore. Doesn’t change the fact that she doesn’t belong in my world. 
Isabel’s learning to hold her own, but nothing can prepare her for the life I’m being called back into. With a long road ahead of us, I won’t make promises I can’t keep. She can barely accept the dark deeds of my past—a bloody history spelled out in a ledger she’s more preoccupied with than I’d like.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

A new chapter begins with this installment and you will be happy with the result. For once, Tristan and Isabelle are together and they begin a new journey. If you thought that the previous installments were bad then you will be surprised with this one. The plot gets darker and we have a few players in the game that change the course of the story. I was satisfied with how things turned out because I felt like we are past the introductory part of Isabell and Tristan's story.  I want to see where the author want's to take our characters and how they are going to survive the battle with their enemies. In my opinion, the installments keep getting better and better.

I feel like I should mention that we have a rape victim in this part of the story, so if that's not something you like you should skip this installment.

Review: Wild With You (The Connor Family #2) by Layla Hagen


About WILD WITH YOU

Lori
Planning weddings is my dream job. As a single Mom, I live vicariously through my brides. From picking the dress to cutting the cake, I'm there every step of the way.
When I meet the best man at the latest wedding, sparks fly. Graham Frazier is more than I bargained for. The charismatic soccer club owner is disillusioned with marriage after his divorce, so it's part of my job to make sure he won't slip any sarcastic jokes in his best man's speech.
It's not part of my job to notice his washboard abs, or that he kisses like a dream. Graham's touch is sizzling.
Before I know it, he bosses me into accepting gifts and spending the night at his house (his excuse is good: I can't possibly drive after working a wedding, can I?)
I say yes to both. There are no two ways about it. I have the hots for this bossy man.
Graham
Since my divorce, weddings aren't my favorite events. But when my best friends decide to tie the knot, I promise to throw them a party they won't forget.
I was counting on sitting through long hours of preparations, but I didn't count on meeting someone like Lori Connor.
I pursue her relentlessly, wanting those long legs wrapped around me and her smooth skin under my lips.
Then I meet her son, and that boy charms me even faster than his mother did. Before I know it, he has me wrapped around his little finger.
But are Lori and I ready for our lives to intertwine in ways we haven't even imagined before?

Review:

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars

Do you honestly expect me to write a bad review for this book? Or maybe not say that I enjoyed the book? I am starting to think that I will never give a bad rating or review to this author. Graham could have been jaded or bitter about love and marriage and ruin the story, but instead, he kept supporting his friends with their marriage preparations and helped them with the budget. He was a great friend and I loved his relationship with Amber and her man. Of course, he got the biggest reward in the end, which is Lori. Lori is a single mom who plans weddings and loves her job. She is also sensible and a good mom. She and Graham took things slowly and I liked how they gradually became a family. It was fun to watch Graham give Lori's son everything he wanted since he couldn't resist his charm. What I really liked about this kid is that he actually acts like one. He is not mature and he tricked Graham into buying him more toys which is something I would expect from a kid. For once, a kid acted like a kid in a novel. He, Graham and Lori were a loving family and I can't wait to see more of them in Will's book. Will admitted that he is not against the idea of love and relationships so, I want to see how his story will go. 

Do I even have to say that I recommend the book? You already knew it.

Exclusive Excerpt:

ISABELLE RAND KISSED her boyfriend, Bram, on the cheek and exited his vehicle. As she walked to the front of the school, she took a deep breath. When she reached the doors, she turned around and waved at Bram, knowing he wouldn’t leave until he saw her walk into the building.

She made no move to look and see if he drove away as she walked down the hall to her classroom. But, instead of going to the end of the corridor, she took a right into the school’s office.

“He’s gone,” her coworker, Jessica, said.

Isabelle breathed a sigh of relief, but it didn’t last long. She was only a fourth of the way through her plan.

Two more teachers, Danni and Alice, with their arms full, came from the back office area along with their principal, Noah.

Danni and Alice dropped the huge, mismatched luggage at Isabelle’s feet.

“Here are most of your clothes,” Danni told her.

“And here are the rest of your clothes and toiletries,” Alice said.

Jessica came over from where she’d been watching the window and took Isabelle’s hand, placing a set of car keys in it. “Here’s your new car. It’s nothing great, but it’s bought and paid for.”

“Give me the keys,” Noah said. “I’ll pull the car around.”

Isabelle handed them over.

Noah looked at Jessica.

“It’s a black Kia,” she told him.

Isabelle swallowed hard as she tried not to cry. “I don’t know what I’d do without you guys.”

Jessica hugged Isabelle first. “This is what friends do for each other.”

“Help them go on the run like a criminal in the night?” Isabelle joked as the first tear fell.

Alice embraced Isabelle next. When she pulled away, she squeezed Isabelle’s arms. “No, we’re helping you escape an abusive boyfriend who doesn’t deserve to call you his.”

Isabelle smiled as best she could.

Danni enveloped Isabelle last.

“I’m scared,” Isabelle said in her friend’s ear.

Danni drew away and looked into Isabelle’s eyes. “I know. I would be scared, too. But we’ve been planning this for a month. Minneapolis is less than two hours away. You will make it before he even knows you’re gone.”

“Honey, are you sure you don’t want to go to a shelter? Are you sure your friends in Minneapolis can keep you safe?” Alice, twenty years Isabelle’s senior, asked.

There was no way Isabelle could tell these wonderful humans that she was going to the safest place in the world for her. Not only was Damien her friend, but he was also the alpha of the Minnesota Wolf Pack. And her other friends whom she was seeking solace from were the wolf-shifter sentinels. Once she told Damien about Bram, he would do everything to help her. And Bram wouldn’t dare take on the alpha of their pack. Not if he wanted to live to tell about it.

“I’m absolutely sure. I just need to get there.”

“Okay, honey. We trust your decision.”

“We’d better go. I’m sure Noah has pulled the car to the side door by now.”

Isabelle took one of the handles to wheel the bag outside, and Danni took the other.

Once they walked outside, Noah popped open the trunk and then got out of Isabelle’s new car. The bags were loaded into the trunk, and then Noah hugged Isabelle.

When he stepped away, he held out his hand. “Phone.”

“What?”

With his other hand, he reached into his back pocket. “Your phone.”

“Oh. Yeah. I almost forgot.”

The four of them had discussed the unlikelihood of Bram tracking her phone since he wasn’t on her plan, but they didn’t think it was a risk she should take. Plus, she didn’t want to deal with the numerous phone calls he was bound to make once he realized she was gone.

She opened her purse and took out her phone. With a silent good-bye, she handed it over, and Noah gave her a new prepaid phone.

“I programmed all our numbers into it, just in case you need anything. And please let us know when you make it there safely.”

“I will.” She looked around at her friends. “I don’t know how I’ll ever repay you.”

“I do,” Alice said. “You can repay us by getting yourself to safety and staying there.”

Isabelle smiled. “I will. I promise.”

“You’d better.”

Isabelle walked around to the driver’s side of her new car but stopped before getting in. She’d almost forgotten. “Please be careful. Bram is not a good guy, and he’s not what he seems. He’s very strong and very dangerous.”

She wished she could come out and warn them that Bram was a wolf-shifter, stronger than all of them combined, and capable of turning into a wild animal that could rip them to shreds. But she couldn’t. They were her friends, but she couldn’t give away her species.

“Honey, please don’t concern yourself with us. It’s a teacher in-service today, so no students to worry about, and we’ll just tell everyone else you called in sick. We know nothing.”

Noah waved the phone. “As soon as you leave, I’m going to call my office with your phone. It’ll show up on your statement that you called in. Like Alice said, don’t worry about us.”

Isabelle closed her eyes. “You know that’s never going to happen. But I will try to worry less. As long as you promise to be careful.”

“We promise,” Alice said for all of them.

And, with one last good-bye, Isabelle took off for Minneapolis…and for freedom.

Blog tour: Opportunity (Office Roulette #3) by Kennedy Layne


About OPPORTUNITY (Office Roulette #3)

USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne brings you the thrilling conclusion to the Office Roulette trilogy…
Gareth Nicollet had been born into wealth, but he’d learned at an early age that money wasn’t everything it was cracked up to be. Regrettably, he’d made a meaningful choice early on in his life that now threatened his future with the woman he loved.

Review:

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Opportunity is the final installment in the Office Roulette series and we finally get to know who is the killer and their motive. I didn't see that revelation coming to be honest. I would have never guessed the identity of the killer and why he did it. I may not the series as much as I love the "Keys to love", but the end won me over. I wish that the main characters from the two previous books had a more significant role to the discovery of the killer, but at least they appeared in the "epilogue" of the book. The romance was good though and I liked the two main characters. As the story goes on, we get more info on their past and how they ended up in the place they are now. For a short story, this installment had a lot of things going on and I was satisfied with the ending result since there wasn't a question left unanswered. Now that I have finished the three books and know the full story, I can recommend the series since it was a nice journey and it was a good mix of romance and mystery.

Missed the first two books and want to catch up? Get your hands on them now!
