I live by one motto – work hard, play harder.

A pro-football player at the top of my game; the Devereux charm, and my skills on and off the field, haven’t let me down yet.

Whatever I want comes easy to me but when I see the cute, blonde gym instructor with the sensational body, I want her … but something tells me it’s going to take more than my name to score with Perrie Fraser.

Head down, no distractions – it’s my new mantra.

As a gym instructor to high-end clientele, all I want is to get through each day without attracting unwanted attention. Even if that attention does come in the form of a drop-dead gorgeous, annoyingly charming pro-football player.

If his ego doesn’t send me running, then his playboy image definitely should … but the more I get to know him, the clearer it becomes that saying no to Thomas Devereux is going to be much harder than I thought.

Sometimes the last thing you think you need becomes the only thing you can trust




About The Author

Author_ImageI am a lady who is in my early thirties who feels like a girl in my late teens!!! I love to read and write - My favourites are angst ridden romance and post-apocalyptic romance but I am up for anything so long as it's a page turner. 

I work hard and also play hard. I have an amazing family, am a mother of one and a wife of a demanding Manchester United fan.

I enjoy socialising, TV shows that incite obsessiveness, movies that become cult favourites and books that I can't put down.

I love my friends and quirky characters that I can observe and feed into my stories. I am excellent at accents and playing characters, which I like to slip into my everyday life.

All in all I'm a crazy person who likes to jazz up the mundane and breathe life into characters that I wish I knew in real life.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I usually hate time jumps when I am reading a book because almost always something bad has happened during the time we missed. So I was thrown off when we got a three-month jump in this book. It wasn't a bad thing though and it sped up things. Ella and Kyle had to move forward with their relationship and frankly, Ella had to grow up. Up until that point, she was her father's slave. A part of her was holding back because of her father. She needed to have her world shaken up as much as her father did. I honestly don't understand why there was so much hate between the two families. How could their love be so easily forgotten? I would have liked a better resolution for that event that changed their lives all those years ago.At least the story had a very good ending and make up for most of the parts I didn't like. Connor's book is next and I am hoping it will be as good one as this one was.Well build is another great book in the series. Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde always manage to create a story that once you start reading you don't realize how fast you devour the book until you have reached the last page.


Dan Briggs, the auctioneer in charge of today's sale, arrived and took his place in front of the small crowd. Less than a minute later, Kyle caught sight of Ella walking out of the connecting market, a bright, self-assured smile on her face and a sassy pep to her step, as if this piece of property was already hers and this auction was just a formality. His gut clenched at what he was about to do to her, but he couldn’t let himself be deterred by an emotion such as guilt. Without looking at who was gathered to watch the sale, she walked up to Dan and spoke to him for a few moments, even laughing at something he said, though Kyle couldn't hear their conversation. But he did have a clear view of Ella, and he took advantage of the opportunity to really study her without her guard being up, as he knew it would be as soon as he topped her first bid. It had been years since the last time he'd seen her. In high school, she'd been a pretty girl, with a lithe body that had tempted him to indulge in all sorts of sin. She’d had a sweet innocence about her that had effortlessly drawn him in. She was still slender with graceful long legs, but her curves were more pronounced and womanly. Her fitted jeans emphasized the alluring dip of her waist along with the tight shape of her spectacular ass. She was wearing a light blue T-shirt with Fisher's Grocery printed across her chest, and it didn't escape Kyle's notice that the breasts that had once been small swells of flesh were now firm and full and would overflow in his big hands in the best possible way. Her delicate features had matured, but she still possessed that natural beauty that didn't require any cosmetics or enhancements. Judging by the loose braid hanging halfway down her back, she'd let her once-shoulder-length style grow quite a few inches, and he found himself wondering how those chestnut strands would look completely unconfined, and if her hair was still as soft and silky as he remembered. Something in his belly tightened, and he recognized it as attraction and desire, even after all this time. If Ella were anyone else, or a woman he'd seen at a bar in the city, he would have already been working his way toward her to introduce himself and to see if the chemistry was reciprocated. And from there, he'd buy her a drink, they'd talk a bit, and he'd get a feel for if she was up for a mutual night of pleasure. Kyle killed that line of thinking. As much as Ella still tempted him, he was pretty certain that she'd knee him in the balls before she'd ever date him again. Especially after she learned he was going to be her new business neighbor.

Hate to Want You (Forbidden Hearts #1) by Alisha Rai

One night. No one will know.

Forbidden Hearts #1
Alisha Rai
Releasing July 25, 2017
Avon Books

Alisha Rai, one of contemporary romance’s brightest stars, makes her Avon Books debut with the first novel in the sexy Forbidden Hearts series!

One night. No one will know.

That was the deal. Every year, Livvy Kane and Nicholas Chandler would share one perfect night of illicit pleasure. The forbidden hours let them forget the tragedy that haunted their pasts—and the last names that made them enemies.

Until the night she didn’t show up.

Now Nicholas has an empire to run. He doesn’t have time for distractions and Livvy’s sudden reappearance in town is a major distraction. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want . . . so why can’t he forget how right she feels in his bed?

Livvy didn’t come home for Nicholas, but fate seems determined to remind her of his presence—and their past. Although the passion between them might have once run hot and deep, not even love can overcome the scandal that divided their families.

Being together might be against all the rules . . . but being apart is impossible.


Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Please, if someone finds the romance in this book, send me a message because it has been lost. The story goes on for chapters and chapters where the two main characters don't see each other and when they do see each other they just have sex. Which is sad. 

I wasn't overly invested in this story, but I am very excited about the idea of reading the second and third book in the series. They sound very interesting and I want them in my hands right now. The main characters didn't do much for me, but I liked some of the secondary like Livvy's sister in law and her brother. Nicholas's sister is also one of the people I liked. John is also good.

Once I saw a bigger image of the blurb I realized that the woman on the cover is Asian like Livvy which is a bonus for the book. I like it when the cover is somewhat close to the story. 

I have some questions that need answering. What happened to Livvy's father and Nicholas's mother? Why were they together that night? Also, who set the fire? To be fair those questions might have been answered in this book, but I was skimming some parts. The book had good characters, but a weak plot. The main couple needed more time together to fall with each other again. I am giving 3.5 stars to the book because I feel generous and I was able to finish the book in one day which means that I liked it even a little. 

Excerpt (Rated R):

Despite her ridiculous schoolgirl outfit, she wasn’t the girl she’d been when she left town. Her hair, her clothes, even her attitude was subtly different. He’d watched every change happen over the past decade in a time-lapse video. There was nothing he didn’t like about the differences in her now.


Right. Right. This was about sex. Nothing else.

She headed down the walkway, the flickering streetlamp in the parking lot burnishing her hair with red and black. She didn’t wobble a bit on her pencil-thin heels, reassuring him that though she’d been in a bar, she wasn’t anywhere near intoxicated.

He got out of the car, taking care to pull his collar up and lower his head, feeling ridiculous as he did so. He was a grown man. Who cared if he had sex with another consenting adult?

Lots of people, starting with his father, but he wasn’t going to think about them right now.

His strides were longer than hers. Her heels and skirt made it difficult for her to do more than mince. He made it to the door a second after she got it open, and followed her in, kicking the door shut behind him. She stripped off her light fall jacket and tossed it on the floor. “Liv—” was all he had a chance to say before she was in his arms, shoving him back.

It was dark, the only light coming in from the crack between the dingy curtains. Her lips pressed against his, and he inhaled the scent of her, each drugging kiss making his head spin. She crawled up him like he was a pole, her arms and legs clutching for balance.

It took him only a second. One second of having those red lips devouring his hungrily, one second of that hot sinner’s body pressing against his own, and all semblance of rational thought flew out of his brain.

Who cared about tomorrow? He was too enflamed to wonder about anything but the here and now. Too excited to even consider this a bad idea. He kissed her back as if he would die if he didn’t get her mouth, licking and sucking and memorizing the very taste of her. He slid his hands over her ass, gripped her luscious cheeks tight, and spun her around, pushing her up against the door.

He ripped his lips away, holding her from him when she might have forced her way back. “How do you want it?” he growled. He had an inkling, from the signals she was broadcasting, but it had been a while since he’d had to read those signals.

“Hard . . .” She scraped her nails over the back of his neck. “Use me. Make me feel it tomorrow.”

The wild look in her eyes was sharper than he’d ever seen it, and it ramped up his own lust. He dragged his hand over her ass, rubbing the fabric against her bottom. “This outfit is indecent.”

Her lids dropped to half-mast, and she arched her back. “You don’t like my clothes? I’m heartbroken.”

“You look like a schoolgirl.”

She tightened her legs around his waist, rubbing up on him. Her heat and wetness was obvious, even through the twin barriers of her underwear and his pants. “A naughty one? Who needs to be punished?”

He should feel ridiculous, but instead his body hardened more, blood engorging his dick. “So naughty.” His hand slipped up her leg to her hip and the strip of fabric there. He used his other hand to arch her back farther, feathering his fingers up her spine. “I could see your ass while you were walking outside.” He traced his hand around the waistband at her back and clenched the fabric in his wrist, pulling the bikini and her tights taut, digging into the folds of her pussy. Her eyes widened.

He tightened his grip. “Were you purposefully strutting around in this skirt, your ass hanging out of it?”


“You’re lying. Do you know what I do to liars?”

Her nails dug into his skin. “Tell me you spank them.”

A red haze swam in front of his eyes, and he pushed her legs down so she was standing. Then he grabbed her by the waist and spun her around to face the door.

He grasped her by the hips and pulled her to stand with her back in an arch, then flipped up that ridiculous plaid skirt. It took him a second to lower her tights to her thighs. Her red panties barely covered the curves of her ass, making him growl. He didn’t know what bar she’d been in, but he imagined her seated in some dingy smoke-filled dive, anonymous bastards salivating over her tight body. Fuck, all it would have taken was one shimmy, and everyone could have gotten a free show, these tempting round globes exposed but for the silly scraps of fabric she’d put over them.

You have no right to be jealous.

He palmed her cheeks, rubbing his thumbs over the plump flesh. “Do you know how badly I wanted to pull you onto my lap and flip this skirt up the second I saw you?”

“To fuck me or to spank me?”


She arched her back more, her ass wriggling. He didn’t think, merely lifted his hand and smacked one full cheek, his rational, caring side standing far apart and watching in horror. He’d never spanked a woman before. As scrappy as Livvy was, he hadn’t thought she’d like this.

Her moan suggested otherwise.

He got it. He got the appeal of this, with Livvy bent over in front of him, legs spread, skirt lifted, red panties exposed, and the hot flesh of her ass filling his hand. He slapped her other cheek, and she moaned again, louder. Hell. He could see the appeal of literally doing anything with Livvy, to be honest.

“Was that okay?” he had the semblance of mind to ask her.

Her hands had braced against the door, and her fingers curled in. She nodded, her red-streaked hair rippling over her back.

His next tap was harder. “You’ve been so bad, Livvy. Tempting all those men tonight. Tempting me.” He smacked her again. “You’ve never stopped tempting me.”

She whimpered. “I’ll stop.”

“We both know that’s impossible.” He squeezed her left cheek, dropping to his knees behind her. With his teeth, he carefully lowered the panties over her ass to meet the rolled-up waistband of her tights. He stayed there, luxuriating in her body as he pressed soft kisses over each cheek, punctuating each tender touch with a slap of his hand.

When she was rocking back against his mouth, he pulled away. He came to his feet. Unable to take his gaze off her tight body, he walked backward until his knees hit the cheap bed. Nicholas slid down to sit on the floor, his back supported by the bed. The sliver of streetlight illuminating the room highlighted her sweet, reddened buttocks. He tore at his jeans, growling when his hand met his throbbing cock. He needed to jerk off or get in her pussy. Something. Anything. Literally whatever would relieve this ache as soon as possible.

She peeked under her arm and straightened, skirt dropping down to cover her bottom.

A crime, covering that butt.

Livvy stripped off her tights and panties and then turned to face him. “Nicholas?”

He ran his hand down his cock once, then twice when he noted the hunger in her gaze as she watched him fondle himself. He grazed the tip, and his body jerked. “Take off your clothes. Shirt first.”

“Do I have to?” Her breathless question was pseudo-innocent.

“Unless you want to be punished.” How he’d punish her, he wasn’t sure. More spanking? Licking her until she wept with the need to orgasm? Fucking her until she screamed?

These didn’t sound like terrible punishments for either of them.

Her fingers fumbled with the buttons of her shirt, and she undid them one by one, so slowly he knew it was a tease. He tightened his hand on his cock, because he knew if he didn’t, he’d demand she come over here so he could rip the offending material right off her.

She stripped it off her shoulders, leaving her in her bra, her toned belly inviting his lips.

“Now the bra.”

She unsnapped the front snap and drew both cups of red lace away from her breasts. They were perky and lifted on their own, the small handfuls the perfect fit for his palm. Her brown nipples were tight and pointed, giving away her excitement. Her breasts rose and fell, her gaze locked on his hand. He made his pulls slower and more explicit, both to give her a show and to make sure he didn’t blow too quickly.

Her hand dropped to the waistband of her skirt, shoving it down, leaving her completely naked. She licked her lips, making the remnants of her lipstick shiny and vibrant. He imagined those lips wrapped tight around his cock, him whispering, Suck me, while guiding her head over his lap.

He shook his head, trying to shake the filthy image from his brain, and released his cock. “Come here.”

She walked over. Her hand unselfconsciously slid over her belly and pussy. She was wet and hot and plump, nearly hairless, save for a small landing strip. The pot of gold tattooed at her hip was a dark shadow. “Closer.”

Blog tour: All or Nothing at All (Billionaire Builders #3) by Jennifer Probst


ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL by Jennifer Probst just went live!

Buy it now


HGTV’s Property Brothers meets The Marriage Bargain in this third volume in the Billionaire Builders series, an all-new, heart-wrenching, and sexy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

Tristan Pierce left the family business to carve out a life of his own, but never forgot his passionate affair with the much younger, inexperienced Sydney Greene, or the hurtful breakup that tore him apart. When he’s forced to return home and face his past, will he be able to carve out a future, or will lies ruin his second chance at love?

Sydney Greene loved Tristan her entire life but when he left, he took not only her heart, but her trust along with him. Now that they’re together again, it’s time they both face the biggest secret of all...


Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

All or nothing at all is, unfortunately, the last book in the Billionaire Builders series by Jennifer Probst. Finally, we get to read Tristan and Sydney's story. I have been waiting for them to get together for a long time and now we discover their dirty secrets. The prologue gives us the chance to find out what happened almost a decade ago and reveals Sydney's biggest secret.

I am trying to be reasonable and say that when the revelation came I was on both sides equally, but to be honest I am trying really hard to see Sydney's point. She had some good moments like the time she decided not to take what little Tristan was offering her, but for half the book I kept thinking how she should have said the truth a lot earlier. I don't know why she kept postponing it. If she had said something from the start maybe we wouldn't have gotten a story that's filled with hate, hurt,  betrayal and distrust. Tristan was treating Sydney very badly after that. Just as he had become a sweet man Sydney and I were falling in love with he became this cold bitter man and I disliked him. I was mad at Sydne for keeping her secret, but I was also mad at him for treating her so badly. Both characters were flawed and they weren't able to achieve the character development I wanted them to.

It saddens me to think that we won't get another book in this world. I loved the Pierce brothers and their other halves. Despite the ups and down's of this book, I was able to enjoy it. Tristan is so loving and a terrific dad for Becca. All the book could have been just the two of them and I wouldn't have minded. Would it be too much to ask for a novella where all the couples spend time with their future children? Pretty please?

If someone asked me if they should read the book or not, I would lean towards the read it side. A little slip from the very good books by Jennifer Probst won't change my mind about the recommendation. Enjoy seeing Tristan and Becca bonding and sharing something special. 


Jennifer Probst wrote her first book at twelve years old. She bound it in a folder, read it to her classmates, and hasn’t stopped writing since. She took a short hiatus to get married, get pregnant, buy a house, get pregnant again, pursue a master’s in English Literature, and rescue two shelter dogs. Now she is writing again.

She makes her home in Upstate New York with the whole crew. Her sons keep her active, stressed, joyous, and sad her house will never be truly clean.
She is the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of sexy and erotic contemporary romance. She was thrilled her book, The Marriage Bargain, was ranked #6 on Amazon's Best Books for 2012. She loves hearing from readers. Visit her website for updates on new releases and her street team at
