ARC Review: Take Me Back by Meghan March

 

Take Me Back

Meghan March

ebook, 275 pages
Published March 20th 2017 by Red Dress Press

 

 

We fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.

Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.

It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.

I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Two damaged people.

Countless secrets.

The fight of our lives.

We might be broken, but we’re not done.

 

 

4 Stars

Take Me Back is emotional, sexy and complex.

 

Meghan March gives readers heart pounding, adrenaline riding, oh my god that may have been the hottest thing I have read, read.  Exceptionally complex and deep characters captivate, entice and quickly find their way into the reader’s heart.  Every page is layered with emotion, making it very hard not to feel.

 

Ms. March had done something quite spectacular with Take Me Back. An unique and gut wrenching story that captivates. Strong emotion and deep passion. I feel that Take Me Back is truly some of Ms. March’s best work.

I guarantee you will be racing through the pages.

ARC Review: Master Her Senses by Laura Kaye

Master Her Senses

Laura Kaye

Blasphemy Series, Book 2

Kindle Edition, 152 pages
Published February 18th 2017 by Laura Kaye

 

 

 

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

Cassia Locke hasn’t played at Blasphemy since a caving accident left her with a paralyzing fear of the dark. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

 

 

 

 

4.5 Stars

 

Sensual, sexy, uplifting and erotic.

Cassia was involved in an accident leaving her with a lasting fear. Darkness. Cassia is a strong woman who has become overwhelmed by the negative impact on her daily living. Cassia is such a brave woman willing to face her fears head on and alone.

Quinton is the Master I wanted more of and did we get him. The man is amazing in too many ways. Commanding and dominant, yet sensitive and caring. He’s a fun loving guy with with a bit of a need of an adrenaline fix. Observant and wise, Quinton knows just how to push the limits in the best way possible.

 

Mastering Her Senses is a quick read that leaves you breathless. Laura Kaye embraces the sensual side of BDSM with Quinton and Cassia’s story. Intense chemistry, physical attraction and a bit of history make this story of healing my hottest read of the year so far.  Cassia and Quinton personalities work so well together.  I was able to feel emotions flowing through the pages as if I were experiencing the story myself. An intense yet playful and fun, fast paced story that’s light on the drama and heavy on the passion.  Master Her Senses is my favorite of the Blasphemy series thus far.

ARC Review: Tangled Passions by Melissa Schroeder

 

Tangled Passions

Melissa Schroeder

Task Force Hawaii, Book 4

Kindle Edition, 281 pages
Published March 3rd 2017 by Harmless Publishing
Facing an obsessive killer proves to be easier than falling in love.

Task Force Hawaii, Book 4

The last person Drew Franklin wants to work with is Cat Kalakau. Their history makes it difficult being in the same room, let alone being joined at the hip during a case. Months ago, they’d shared a night filled with romance and a bit more, but that ended after he was shot. Since then, even their friendship seems to have fallen apart. But he will do his job, even if spending more time with her is killing him.

Working with Drew every day reminds Cat she’s to blame for his injury. It doesn’t matter that she wants him more than her next breath, or that every time he looks at her she melts into a puddle of lust. She needs to resist her own desires to protect him as they hunt a serial killer targeting wealthy men signed up for dating services.

Soon though, their time together proves to be too much. One fight leads to a kiss, which leads to so much more. Neither of them is prepared for the overwhelming need they have for each other or the connection they seem to have. But when Cat realizes Drew is the object of the killer’s obsession, she will do anything to protect him even if it means sacrificing her life for his

 

 

 

 

4 Stars

 

Tangled Passions, the fourth book of Melissa Schroeder’s Task Force Hawaii series, is a humorous, sexy and emotional read that has you guessing until the end.

 

Cat and Drew’s story was highly anticipated for me. These two have been playing at a game of sexual tension for many books now. Cat is a strong woman with an even bigger personality. Drew is one of those rare, hard to find, good men. The chemistry these two create is more than intense. Denying their feelings has only made it worse. Seeing them finally give in to the attraction and feelings, wanting something more than a night or two, was magical.  Cat and Drew are intense, in every way. Their personalities are big, they’re passionate scorching. They truly to make the perfect couple.

 

Melissa Schroeder takes the reader to paradise once again while keeping them guessing with the turn of every page.  Perfectly blending romance and suspense, in a setting that is absolute breathtaking, while keeping the reader on their toes with the plot that’s turning. Tangled Passions is well worth spending a few hours in Hawaii.  Suspense done right and steamy hot passion, 5 Stars!!!!

ARC Review: Souljacker by Yasmine Galenorn

 

Souljacker

Yasmine Galenorn

Lily Bound Series, Book 1

Paperback, 292 pages
Published March 7th 2017 by Diversion Books

 

 

Lily O’Connell, a succubus, owns Lily Bound, an elite sex salon in the Blood Night District of Seattle. When a client is murdered in her house, a patch of skin missing from his chest, she knows there’s something evil afoot. Then comes the news that the Souljacker—a tattoo-artist-turned-vampire—has escaped from an institution for criminally deranged Supernaturals. And he’s hunting and killing everyone he has ever inked.

With one of the Souljacker’s tattoos on her thigh and nowhere else to turn, Lily hires Archer Desmond, a chaos demon and PI, to help her track down the vampire before he finds her and her friends. But Lily didn’t plan to fall for Archer. And as the old tales say—a succubus who falls in love will destroy the heart of the one she seeks to claim.

 

 

4.5 Stars

Souljacker is a fantastic beginning to what looks to be a great new urban fantasy series.

 

Lily is smart, snarky and a succubus. She’s fun and feisty. Lily runs Lily Bound. A salon that will cater to clients and in return Lily is able to feed on the chi she needs without harming.  I liked Lily. There is a uniqueness to her that I enjoyed.  Her personality shines, she cares deeply and is willing to take on the would. Lily is challenged from the first pages of the book, causing exciting and unexpected changes in her life.

 

One of things that I love about Ms. Galenorn’s work is her world building. The settle and atmosphere of the story are like a character themselves.  Rich details allow the reader to perfectly   visualize the world in which they have stepped into. Ms. Galenorn’s personal touch to myth and legend adds to a creative and unique feel to the story. Secondary characters play just as important of a role to the story as do the primary. There’s a vast array of personality and paranormal creatures to touch on everyone’s tastes.  Not to mention readers do get some pretty steamy naughtiness as an added bonus.

 

I really enjoyed Souljacker. Ms. Galenorn offers up something a bit different and thoroughly enjoyable.  The cast of characters make the story.  ghosts, satyrs, witches and vamps. That’s just the beginning. Souljacker is a fast moving read. Darker in nature with some funny moments.  If you’re looking for something a bit different in a paranormal I highly recommend Souljacker.

ARC Review: Renegade by Laramie Briscoe

Renegade

Laramie Briscoe

Kindle Edition
Published March 9th 2017 by Laramie Briscoe Books

 

 

When you fall in love with the most unexpected person, at the most unexpected time……

Ryan “Renegade” Kepler

I’m the type of man who knows what I want. I make up my mind and stay in my lane, never veering off the course I set for myself.

Going into the military? Did it. Youngest member of the Moonshine Task Force? That’s me. Get my best friend’s older sister in bed? It was my pleasure.

Age means nothing to me. I’ve seen and done things men twice my age never will. What I want more than anything is someone to share my life with and that person is my best friend’s older sister, Whitney.

Whitney Trumbolt

Ryan is ten years my junior, but damn, being a cougar never felt as good as it did the night we spent together. Now I’m struggling with wanting things to either go back to the way they were or spend every night in his arms.

Make my wedding planning company the best in the south? Did it. Ignore the way my body trembles when I see Ryan? Epic fail. Freak out when I see a positive pregnancy test staring back at me? Complete with mascara running down my face and clutching my pearls.

Looks like things won’t go back to the way they were. There’s a man in my life that doesn’t take no for an answer. He’s the one who makes my blood run hot, cheeks turn red, and heart beat wildly within my chest. His name is Renegade.

 


4.5 Stars

 

Laramie Briscoe introduces readers to her exciting new series, The Moonshine Task Force, with Renegade.

 

Ryan “Renegade” Kelper is the epitome of book boyfriends. The youngest member of the Moonshine Task Force is dominant, dedicated, loyal and a good man wrapped in one hell of a sexy package. A man who has seen and done far more than his year should allow. Renegade is a man that knows what he wants and who. This man will make your heart hammer.

 

Whitney knows what the bad is a relationship all too well.  Having an ex who put her through the mill in more ways than one. Whitney is still healing but has her life back on track. She own one of the top wedding planning companies.  She puts all of herself into her job. You can see the passion that she possesses come through in every aspect of what she does. She’s a strong woman, independent and so caring.  I  absolutely adore Whitney. I related with her on so many levels and in so many ways. I always find an extra special place in my heart for a book when I can relate with one of the character so much.

 

Ryan and Whitney, swoon my heart.  Their story is highly emotional, deeply passionate and very sexy.  The connection they shared was amazing. Emotional and physical that became something extremely beautiful. Ryan’s patients, understanding and insight made him stand out. Whitney’s growth, determination and willingness made me want to befriend her on the spot.

 

Ms. Briscoe amazes me with every book.  She gives readers characters who could easily be one of your friends. Very believable story lines, low on the drama and high on personality. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Ms. Briscoe has an amazing talent for writing emotions so real, you truly feel her words.  She gives her readers intimate and pleasurable stories that leave lasting impressions.  Renegade holds a very special place with me. I connected with this story so closely it gave me chills.

As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.

Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.

As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.

About SHADE’S LADY:

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

Stylized close detailed portrait of masculine handsome young man in sepia tones

 

 

EXCERPT:

“Did you get my text?” Sara asked, pushing through the office door. I’d just finished tying my apron around my waist, and was leaning toward the cracked mirror on the wall for one last makeup check before punching in.

“No,” I replied, frowning. “Dropped my cell in the toilet this morning. I called the phone people. They said I didn’t have any insurance, so I’m fucked. I put it on Future Me’s list of things to worry about.”

Sadly, Future Me’s list got longer every day. She was supposed to pay our credit card bill, figure out whether we should break up with our boyfriend, and find a better place to sleep than my sister’s couch. She also needed to lose ten pounds and magically fix the rusted-out Kia Sedona currently broken down in my sister’s yard.

Present Me would’ve felt guilty about dumping all this on the poor thing, but I only had three minutes left to punch in and start slinging drinks for drunken bikers, so it would just have to wait.

Yup. I’m organized like that.

Studying my reflection, I ran an eye down the length of my body. Tight tank with a hint of bra showing? Check. (Nothing like some boob action to bring in the tips. Not only that, Rebel had said he’d be here tonight, and he always liked seeing the girls.)

Lipstick was bright and shiny, no smudges on the teeth. More eye makeup than I’d usually wear, but ever since I’d started hanging out with Rebel’s biker friends, I’d kicked it up a notch. Made me look wild and sexy. Not gonna lie—I liked this new me. I liked her a lot. I guess if there was one good thing about my sister’s life falling apart—and me moving to Violetta to help with the kids—it was that it’d forced me to change my life, too.
