Review: What The Hail by Lani Lynn Vale

What The Hail

Lani Lynn Vale

Hail Raisers Series, Book 4

Kindle Edition
Published December 14th 2017

He’s wanted her since he repossessed her car and made her cry.

Baylor Hail knew two things. One, he hated crying females. Two, it was even worse when he was the one to make that female cry.

He never meant to do anything but his job, but when one thing leads to another, suddenly all he can think about is the broken woman whose car he towed.

She’s wanted him since he patted her back and told her it was okay to cry even though she knew he was lying.
Nothing ever goes right for Lark.

Not when she got married. Not when she tried to leave her abusive husband, and not when she arrived in a new town with a fresh, clean slate.

That clean slate came courtesy of a secret organization that specializes in helping abused women find a way out. They set her up with a whole new life. It just turns out that it happened to be right smack dab in the middle of another woman’s old one.

That woman also happens to be down on her luck, something that Lark learns the hard way when on her first day there, her car is towed by a handsome stranger.

It’s been two years since she’s felt any kind of sexual attraction toward a man, and she reacts badly. We’re talking full-on, hysterical breakdown as he loads her car onto his tow truck while looking at her like she’s lost it.

Maybe being crazy isn’t all that bad.

The next thing she knows, she’s spending time with the sexy stranger and life couldn’t be better—even though she still doesn’t have a car.

She thinks she’s in the clear, that she’s got it all figured out… well, that is until her ex-husband finds her again.
Now the ball is in her sexy stranger’s court as he decides whether or not her kind of crazy is worth getting killed over.

Turns out, for Baylor Hail, maybe it is.

4.5 Stars

 

Holy Hail! Another awesome read from Lani Lynn Vale!

Baylor is a veteran, tow truck driver and a total alpha badass. A man who could easily scare the crap out of one person to save another. Beneath his hard and gorgeous exterior is a kind and caring man. Don’t get me wrong, he has his issues but he’s on fine man.

 

Lark has just become my favorite lead lady of the year. She’s strong, smart and brave. She’s quietly trying to make her happy. Lark has a few quarks that when mixed with her personality make her pretty flippin cool. This woman will easily make you laugh out loud.

What the Hail Is a world wind of emotions, actions, danger and a ton of humor. I could not put this book down. I laughed so much my cheeks hurt. Lark and Baylor have something special. Their chemistry is phenomenal and craziness that they go through is more than worth the read. Lark and Baylor are two people that you can tell were meant to be together. Their story will spin you in more ways than one.

About DAWN OF SURRENDER:

MacKenzie vs. MacKenzie…

Cole MacKenzie is content to be the sheriff of Surrender, Montana, but he’s needed for a greater purpose. The United States needs a U.S. Marshal with a certain kind of experience to track the leader of the notorious Silver Creek Bandits, as they leave a trail of bodies in their wake with every bank they rob. The leader is smart, cunning, and ruthless. And he’s also his brother.

Elizabeth MacKenzie never dreamed she’d marry Cole MacKenzie, but thanks to her father’s meddling, Cole was hers to have and to hold. Forever. She needed an equal, not a man to rule her life, and Cole fit the bill every in every way. If only he loved her.

One heart is broken and the other is bent on revenge, but love is a choice, and it’s one Cole and Elizabeth are determined to make.

Excerpt:

“My place is here, with my wife and this town. My duty is to them first. The job you’re asking me to do is meant for a younger man without any ties. I’m not going to pick up and leave my wife for months at a time to track outlaws. There’s plenty of good I can do here, with the badge I already have.”

“A wife is just a wife,” Jesse said. “But this is your chance to go down in history.”

Cole laughed. There was nothing just about Elizabeth. “I never asked to go down in history. I’m just doing the best I can to make the world we live in the best it can be. I want a family, and I don’t want to let them inherit a world of wars and violence.”

“War is in the nature of man,” Jesse said. “It’s been that way since Cain and Abel. And here we are, a whole bunch of years later with the story of two brothers.”

Cole had been watching the street, subconsciously seeking out his wife. He was starting to get worried that she’d gotten stuck somewhere. She should’ve been there by now.

And then, almost as if he’d conjured her, she came through the window of visibility, the snow swirling around her. She’d left her head uncovered, and loose strands of dark hair had come out of the long braid that rested over her shoulder. Her long coat swirled around her legs, and her pistols were slung low on her hips. Unlike any other woman he’d ever met, she chose to wear men’s trousers in her day-to-day work at the ranch. He’d never actually seen her in a dress. But he definitely appreciated what she did to a pair of men’s pants.

Jesse saw her too, and his fork stopped halfway to his mouth.

“Good Lord,” Jesse rasped.

“She’s something, huh?”

Jesse blew out a breath and put his fork down. “Oh, good. You see her too. I was afraid maybe I’d died and she was an angel of death.”

“There are worse ways to go,” Cole said, smiling.

“That’s for damned sure.” Jesse picked up his fork again, but he’d forgotten what he was doing so he set it down again. “I’ve got to tell you, MacKenzie, I’ve seen a lot of things in my life, but I’ve never seen anything like her.”

She was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen. And she was all his.

4 Stars

Whether it’s the MacKenzies of today or those of yesteryears, a visit with them is an adventure that only a MacKenzie can give.

This is a special story in my eyes. Cole and Elizabeth are simply amazing. Seeing how the MacKenzies began their clan, Ms. Hart treated readers with Dawn of Surrender. Cole and Elizabeth story is simple yet it’s so something profound that I became completely enchanted with their tale. Two hard working good people, doing what need to be done while finding who they are and making their marriage work.

Dawn of Surrender may just be my favorite of the MacKenzie stories. Sassy and sexy, yet simple beautiful. Cole and Elizabeth show way it’s so easy to love the MacKenzies.

Excerpt and Review: No Reservations by Kristin Proby

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a sexy, new contemporary romance novella in her Fusion Series, NO RESERVATIONS, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy of this amazing novella today!

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

4 Stars

Maura is a straight forward woman is so many ways. That’s just one one thing I liked about her. A teacher that you shouldn’t judge by her cover. Maura has sassy and spunk. She’s the kind of woman that you want at your side.

Chase comes with a player reputation but I saw him as a man loving his life. Flirty, cocky and a bit dominant side. Chase is confident in both himself and his business. He gives as good as he gets. He’s a fun character in many unexpecting ways.

I really enjoyed No Reservations. A short and quick read that turns the heart up to scorching levels. I love a good character driven story and that what No Reservations is. Two amazing and awesome main characters, excellent banter that increases the flame to the fire. Two people who know who they are and what they want. Two people who are each other’s match in too many ways. Chase and Maura give readers one enticing ride. A slow burn, intense chemistry and some wonderfully intimate moments. No Reservations is a fantastic read.

Review: Dirty Filthy Fix by Laurelin Paige

 

Dirty Filthy Fix

Laurelin Paige

Fixed Series, Book 5.5

1001 Dark Nights

Expected publication: November 21st 2017 by Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated

 

 

I like sex. Kinky sex. The kinkier the better.

Every day, it’s all I think about as I serve coffee and hand out business agendas to men who have no idea I’m not the prim proper girl they think I am.

With a day job as the secretary to one of New York’s most powerful men, Hudson Pierce, I have to keep my double life quiet. As long as I do, it’s not a problem.

Enter: Nathan Sinclair. Tall, dark and handsome doesn’t come close to describing how hot he is. And that’s with his clothes on. But after a dirty, filthy rendezvous, I accept that if we ever see each other again, he’ll walk right by my desk on his way to see my boss without recognizing me.

Only, that’s not what happens. Not the first time I see him after the party. Or the next time. Or the time after that. And as much as I try to stop it, my two worlds are crashing into each other, putting my job and my reputation at risk.

And all I can think about is Nathan Sinclair.

All I can think about is getting just one more dirty, filthy fix.

 

 

 

4.5 Stars

 

Wow- the perfect dirty fix!

Nathan is sexy, charming and has the ability to make any woman melt completely. He too is strong and independent, also domineering with the ability to understand and nurture. He so caught me off guard. Nathan went when the flow to speak. He was willing to change and adapt to someone else’s needs. Making Nathan the catch of all catches.

Trish is a kick butt assistant by the light of day but when the sun goes down an amazingly kinky woman emerges to play. She’s independent and strong, and completely confident with her wants and need. Her sexuality is equal to her career. She works hard and plays just as hard. Trish has a set of rules, made by her, to keep her from falling. Those rules keep her from getting hurt.

If there was ever a perfect title that not only catches you but describes the book in one, It Dirty Filthy Fix by Laurelin Paige. It’s dirty, taboo, filthy, sexy and hand down one of the HOTTEST books that I have read to date.

Nathan and Trish are explosive together. That only touches what I liked about this novella. A strong woman, an alpha that surprised me and one dirty, filthy, so sin worthy book. Strong characters, a good plot and excellent pacing. Ms. Paige has gone over the top with Dirty Filthy Fix. It’s sexy and adventurous. Two people who find their Happy even though it’s not conventional, it works for them. Ms. Paige is on my radar now.

You want a quick read that can blow your mind, Dirty Filthy Fix is the read for you.

CHERISH HARD

A Hard Play Novel by Nalini Singh

 

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh kicks off her new Hard Play contemporary romance series with a sizzling story that’ll leave you smiling…

 

Sailor Bishop has only one goal for his future – to create a successful landscaping business. No distractions allowed. Then he comes face-to-face and lips-to-lips with a woman who blushes like an innocent… and kisses like pure sin.

 

Ísa Rain craves a man who will cherish her, aches to create a loving family of her own. Trading steamy kisses with a hot gardener in a parking lot? Not the way to true love. Then a deal with the devil (aka her CEO-mother) makes Ísa a corporate VP for the summer. Her main task? Working closely with a certain hot gardener.

 

And Sailor Bishop has wickedness on his mind.

 

As Ísa starts to fall for a man who makes her want to throttle and pounce on him at the same time, she knows she has to choose – play it safe and steady, or risk all her dreams and hope Sailor doesn’t destroy her heart.

Excerpt from CHERISH HARD

Nalini Singh

 

ÍSA WONDERED WHAT THE HELL she was doing.

Being a devil woman, she reminded herself. Having fun for a change. Not being a grandma at twenty-eight years of age.

Still, she couldn’t stop second-guessing herself as Sailor led her out of the house through a side entrance that opened out into a small, manicured garden. “I’ll have to take off my heels,” she whispered when she saw the pebbled path snaking through the garden.

“Want a piggyback ride?” A playful grin. “I promise not to molest your thighs.”

Goose bumps broke out over Ísa’s skin, her nipples tight. Reckless as she was feeling tonight, she might just have taken him up on his offer if she hadn’t been worried her damn dress would split in two. “Maybe when we’re naked,” she said instead, Devil Ísa in full flower.

Groaning, he doubled over as if she’d punched him.

Her lips twitching despite the melting sexual heat liquefying her bones, she leaned down to slip off her heels.

Sailor waited, his hand firm around hers, until she was done. Taking the heels from her, he carried them in his other hand as Ísa padded beside him on the grass that lay on this side of the pebbled path. The path ended at a weathered wooden gate, which, when opened, put them at the top of a narrow walkway that led down onto a beach Ísa couldn’t yet see but could hear.

Her heart crashed in time with the waves as they made their way down to the beach while the mansion behind them pulsed with light and music. But she didn’t turn and run away, she didn’t stop and talk herself out of it, she didn’t attempt to be a sensible adult. She followed a gorgeous, blue-eyed man down a dirt pathway to an effectively private beach.

The sand that had been tracked onto the path was gritty under her feet, the air coming off the sea cool but not cold.

“The water’s going to be icy, isn’t it?” she whispered to his broad back.

“Don’t worry, spitfire. I’ll keep you warm,” was the deep-voiced response. “Stop here.” Jumping down to the beach, he reached up to grab her by the waist, swinging her down as if she were a featherweight.

Something fluffy and mushy came to life inside Ísa. “Here?”

Shaking his head, he said, “Raj told me there’s like a little cove area—not a proper cove, but caused by— There.”

Ísa saw it at once. A huge tree had fallen into the water at some point and smashed up against some rocks where it appeared to be stuck. Between the jutting rocks on either side and the fallen trunk was a naturally created pool. The water within it was pretty calm, and it looked as if they could get to it by clambering over some rocks that didn’t appear too sharp or slippery.

Of course, she’d be walking over those rocks naked.

Ísa looked up at the moon. Imagined it shining on the stark white of her body. Gulped. “Will you close your eyes while I go in the water?” Even Devil Ísa wasn’t up for blinding him with her glow-in-the-dark form.

A glance back. “What’re you going to bribe me with?”

Ísa scowled. “Not pushing you into the water right now.” It was a toothless threat given his muscles and her lack of them.

Rubbing his jaw, he said, “Three tongue kisses. That’s my price, and I’m not budging.”

Ísa wanted to pounce on him all over again. “Two,” she countered.

“Nuh-uh. Three. Or I’m keeping both eyes wide open.” Leaning in, he pressed his nose to hers. “I really want to keep my eyes wide open.”

And Ísa really wanted to kiss him and run her hands all over that sculpted chest. “Three,” she whispered.

Sweet and Sexy

Sailor is the just type of alpha that I love. Strong and confident yet sweet, compassionate and determined. He’s totally swoon worthy. Sailor is a quiet man but knows what he wants out of life.

Ísa was a sweet woman but sadly didn’t stand out for me. Yes, I liked her. As I got to know her she did grow on me, but I didn’t love her. She gave a lot for her family that left her lonely. Seeing her come out of that shell was nice.

Cherish Hard is a wonderful story. Very engaging, fun and likable characters and a good plot. Second characters make their personalities known throughout the story. Adding more wit and humor to a very enjoyable story. Sailor and Ísa have a chance at something wonderful. I love how they opened up to each other without a ton of drama. They let the romance do its magic. A highlight of Cherish Hard was the ties to Rock Kiss series that I adore.

ARC Review: Inked Memories by Carrie Ann Ryan

 

Inked Memories

Carrie Ann Ryan

Montgomery Ink Series, Book 8

ebook, 218 pages

Published October 31st 2017



The Montgomery Ink series by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues when the final Denver Montgomery sibling refuses to fall for his brother’s former flame—the company’s new plumber.

Wes Montgomery watched his entire family fall in love, and now finds himself ready to settle down. Except the one person he seems to find chemistry with is not only his twin’s ex, she also works for Montgomery Inc. But when the two find themselves in one compromising situation after another, Wes realizes he’s having second thoughts about the dynamic woman who’s burst her way into his life. Sure she sets off his temper, but she also makes him hot in every other way possible.

Jillian Reid never loved her best friend like everyone thought she should, so she pushed him away so he could have his future. Now, despite fighting it, she finds herself attracted to the one man she shouldn’t. When her father’s health takes a turn for the worse, and a danger no one saw coming show its face, she’s forced to turn to Wes for help. The two of them have fought off their attraction long enough, and each cave to the desire. But this enemies-to-lovers tale might have an ending no one ever dreamed of.

 

 

 

 

 

4 Stars

 

Wes is the fixer of the Montgomery family. As his siblings have pair off, his fixing is need so much and I believe has become a bit lonely. Wes is an amazing man, a loyal friend and the best type of brother.
Jillian is a hands down, kick butt woman. Amazing at her craft, sassy and snarky to the core. Quick witted she can give as good as she gets. Jillian is devoted and beyond caring to those she loves.

The final chapter of the Denver Montgomery’s is upon reader and I have to say it was such an emotional read for me. It hit home on so many levels I had to read Inked Memories twice to capture the entire story. Wes and Jillian was a surprise pairing, I thought. You could see the tension coming off the two of them anytime they were together. The banter was spot on. I loved how Wes and Jillian drove each other crazy. Purposefully and no so. Theirs was a slow burn to romance, as we see a lot of individual time with both Wes and Jillian. They proved to each other, the preconceived ideas they had of one were very far from the truth. Catching two people off guard and giving them something more.
Emotional is an understatement for Inked Memories. Get the tissues ready. I have been with the Montgomery clan from the beginning. With Inked Memories hitting so very close to home with me, this story holds a special place in my heart. Family is who you make it and not just blood, the Montgomery’s proved that time and time again. The stories of the Denver part of the family maybe finished but Ms. Ryan opened the door of the Montgomery clan.

And she finds all that and more in a rugged, edgy motorcycle mechanic, the one man in the bar who eclipses all the others.
He’s her dirtiest little secret…
Isaac Banks doesn’t talk to members of the Steel Warriors motorcycle club about his painful past. All they know is he’s the best bike mechanic in the state, which is exactly how he likes it. Ava doesn’t recognize him as the awkward kid who used to spend Sunday nights at her dinner table with their families, but she’s sure interested in the man she thinks he is now. She’s from the world he left behind, and he knows he should walk away—but it’s impossible to say no to the woman who starred in all his adolescent fantasies. All he wants is one night to get her out of his system. Because there was no way she could live up to his dreams. 
But he’s wrong. One night will never be enough.

Review: Destiny Disgraced by Carrie Ann Ryan 

 

Destiny Disgraced 

Carrie Ann Ryan 

Talon Pack Series, Book 6

Paperback
Published September 12th 2017

 

The Talon Pack continues with a new twist to the Packs and a revelation no one was prepared for.

Mitchell Brentwood is aware that others think he’s the harsh taskmaster Beta trying to keep his Pack alive, but they only see what he wants them to know. He’d once thought he had his path laid out before him, but when his future was violently ripped away, he vowed he’d never let anyone close again—especially not a young wolf from a traitorous Pack.

Dawn Levin may be younger than the war that destroyed her people, but she knows she must still pay for their sins. She’s ready to find her way in this new world where wolves and humans blend as one, but first, she needs to fight her attraction to the dark wolf that stands in her way.

While the two struggle with their feelings and burning attraction for each other, they can’t ignore the world that shakes beneath their feet. There is a new enemy on the horizon, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An adversary that might be closer than they realize

 

 

 

 

 

4 Stars
Mitchell carries a secret that leaves his heart heavy and missing a piece. Arrogant and stubborn yet loyal and dedicated. His protective nature explains the fierceness that makes people run away and the caring and gentleness he provides to his pack and friends.
Dawn is trying to find her place in a changing world. Being a maternal dominant without wee ones to care and nurture has taken a bit of a toll on her. Strong, independent and the amount of caring and love she is willing to give is beyond words.
Changes are a foot for the Talon Pack. Action, suspense and slow burning passion. Carrie Ann Ryan keeps readers on the toes with the surprises she reveals in Destiny Disgraced. Dawn and Mitchell have a connection but their hearts, heads and wolves are not getting in line together. Mitchell helping the Central pack opened him to something he didn’t think he could ever want again. Dawn gained more than a friendship by taking a helping hand. I enjoyed seeing the passion that Mitchell and Dawn shared. The compassion and independence along with chemistry makes Mitchell and Dawn an amazing couple.

Austin Compton has struggled to live up to the Compass legacy his entire life, afraid of disappointing his overachieving family. After dropping out of college, he convinced his parents to buy a big rig and let him contribute to the Compass Ranch in his own way.

When he picks up some unexpected cargo in the form of a gorgeous if battered stowaway, he’s in trouble. The same reckless urges that convinced him to abandon his education are telling him to keep Hayden close and safe, maybe even teach her how to love again after the disastrous relationship she’s fleeing.

When troubled times fall on Compass Ranch, Hayden will do anything to repay the kindness Austin and his family showed her. It’s time to support Austin like he’s done for her, if her past doesn’t catch up with her at exactly the wrong moment.

Sweet, compassionate and sexy!

Austin is a man not to be judged by his looks. Yes, he’s fall down gorgeous, built and has every alpha tendency you could imagine. Not to mention the tattoos. Under his dominating exterior is a kind, caring and compassionate man that you don’t see coming. Austin is a dream come true. His mama raised him right. Austin is a true gentleman.
Hayden is a wonderful woman with dreams and aspirations who got a bad deal with the wrong man. In a moment of desperation she finds strength. Hayden is a stubborn woman but her bravery is beyond the stars. She’s an honest woman admitting to her not so wise choices and a conviction to see things to the end. She needs, for her own piece of mind, to know she can handle herself on her own before she can commit to a life of more.
Stay just a bit longer – Words of need and compassion. Austin and Hayden meet in the craziest of situations. Being a good man, Austin sees Hayden for what she is, not only beautiful, but a woman in true need of help. Austin unknowingly gives Hayden a peace that she’s never experienced. The compassion and warmth of Austin allows Hayden to begin to heal and discover herself. Love is a bumpy road, working hard to make it work and all of patience. Seeing Austin and Hayden take that road, made a story I fell in love with.
