Review: No Reservations by Kristin Proby

No Reservations

Kristen Proby

1001 Dark Nights

Fusion Series, Book 4.5

Evil Eye Concepts

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

Fixed Series, Book 5.5

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.

Excerpt:

“Uh…” She gave up pretending to breathe normally, her neck ceasing to support her head. “Ky, please…”

And then she felt it. Tiny bites along the insides of her thighs, branding her through the cotton leggings. Slow, precise, just enough pressure. Commanding her neck to play ball, Bree looked down to find Kyler’s eyelids at half mast, his white teeth sinking in every couple inches, his own chest and stomach shuddering in and out, his nipples in tight points. At the sight, the walls of Bree’s core constricted and released with enough force to send a rattling gasp flying from her mouth.

Kyler.”

“Bree?”

“Just…”

“Yeah.”

His double grip beneath her knees vanished, but before her legs could fall, Kyler was inserting his hips to catch them. One arm snaked around the base of her spine, sliding her forward and out of the machine…and then there she was. Legs wrapped around her ex-boyfriend’s waist, heart pounding, moisture pooled between her thighs, their mouths separated only by a matter of an inch.

“You wore that cologne on purpose,” she breathed. “Admit it.”

His grin flashed. “Guilty as charged and unrepentant as a sinner.”

Her gasp only widened his smile. “Bragging about sinning now, are you, Kyler?”

“You say my name all shaken up and sexy like that when you want me to kiss your pretty mouth.” Hunger made his tone sound like two knives sharpening each other. “I reckon nothing has changed.”

About Tessa Bailey:

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

 

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

4 Stars ✨ 

Second chance romances are a favorite, Bree and Kyler making this sexy, fun and feisty read as hot as a day at the beach. Kyler is so many good things wrapped in a beautiful package. He’s a genuine charmer, swoon worthy and so flippin sweet with a wickedly dirty mouth. Bree is sweet, dedicated and a very good woman. Pursuing her dream caused her to lose something she loved dearly, but never let it go from the heart. She’s quite the spunky woman. I enjoyed reading her.

Tessa Bailey has once again rocked my reading would and blown my mind with Too Close To Call. Kyler and Bree are a fun and flirty couple that make you smile constantly. I loved the banter between the two. Their connection hasn’t skipped a beat. Ms. Bailey gives the readers a sweet and heartfelt romance with passion so hot a cool down is required after reading. Too Close To Call is the perfect read to heat up you steamy beach day.

Review: Hold Me by J. Kenner

Hold Me

J. Kenner

1001 Dark Nights

Evil Eye Concepts

 

 

My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms.

But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials.

I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms.

 

 

4 Stars 
 I truly adored this sweet and emotional visit with Nikki and Damien. Life is a delicate balance once you add children into the mix. Finding time for yourself, work and love can be taxing on the soul. Ms. Kenner does an amazing job of displaying the reality and depth of these emotions. 
Nikki and Damien are so in love and devoted to each other. The flames of their passion have only increased with time and the addition of their family. I think many people can relate to Nikki’s emotional issues within Hold Me. I also love the growth Nikki has achieved for herself. And the fact the Damien and Nikki are combustible together is just a bonus.

Wicked Hot

Gennita Low

Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family Series

Kindle Edition, 110 pages
Expected publication: March 21st 2017 by Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated

 

New York Times bestselling author Gennita Low adds international intrigue and suspense to Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie family with WICKED HOT…

A US operative/businessman had been kidnapped in Indonesia. He has a vital piece of information that would get the US government in trouble. But Indonesia is a country with with over 17000 islands, with plenty of jungles in which to hide.

Off-the book NSA fixer, Kirk Ryan, approaches his cousin, Archer, who works at MacKenzie Securities for help with tracing a phone call. He also needs a translator familiar with Indonesian. Not a problem. MacKenzie Securities’ troubleshooter, Jade, has plenty of connections. In fact, there is a translator she knows who is in Indonesia right now.

Suria, GEM contract agent, really doesn’t want to do anything but lie on the heated beaches of Indonesia and just enjoy her first holiday in years. But she owes Jade Jax a favor and her friend’s calling it in. And the favor comes in a six-foot-two package of irresistible and wicked male. It’s just a translation job. She would help and maybe get to know the man for a day or two. What could go wrong?

 

 

 

 

 

4 Stars

Suspenseful and fast-paced. Gennita Low gets readers hearts pumping and keeps them on their toes.
Wicked Hot packed a huge punch for a short book. Ms. Low has a keen eye for detail and takes the reader on hell of an adventure. Giving readers a close, personal and intimate look at the covert operations and the effects on the characters and those they surround themselves with.
Ms. Low’s attention to detail and amazingly strong characters have made wonderful additions to the MacKenzie world family. Kirk and Surya are both strong, hard headed and incredibly brave. Although I found Wicked Hot heavy on the suspense and action, the rising sexual tension along with the playful banter between Kirk and Surya gives reader the touch of romance that we love some much.
Ms. Low’s writing style is unique and very enjoyable. You can very much tell she has done more than her fair share of research. I look forward to reading more of her work.

EXCERPT :

“I want to know why you wear a damned burlap sack and flip-flops every damned day. You have access to anything you want, but the only times you aren’t dressed like a medieval monk are when you leave Sheoul-gra.” Azagoth cocked his head and intensified his focus, leaving Razr feeling like a germ under a microscope. “Is it part of your punishment?”

Razr started. He’d been living in Sheoul-gra and working in Azagoth’s employ for over a year now, and this was the first time his boss had asked him anything that wasn’t work-related.

“Yes,” Razr said, but it was a simple answer to a complex issue.

“Your situation is unique. You aren’t fallen, but you aren’t a Heavenly angel, either. You aren’t even Unfallen,” Azagoth said, referring to the in-between state of an angel who had lost his wings but who hadn’t entered Sheoul, the demon realm, to complete his fall from grace. He glided over to the wet bar and splashed rum into two glasses. “Heaven created a new designation of angel just for you.”

“Yeah,” Razr drawled. “Ain’t I special.” Except he wasn’t. There was another who had shared his status, his former lover Darlah, presumed dead after failing to return from a mission.

A mission that was now Razr’s alone.

Azagoth handed him one of the glasses, and Razr struggled to hide his surprise. And suspicion. The male rarely acknowledged his existence, let alone treated him like an equal. “For some reason, you are special.”

This was really getting weird. Azagoth had never shown any interest in him, but honestly, Razr was shocked that the guy didn’t know more about Razr’s story. He’d figured Heaven would have given Azagoth the full scoop, but apparently not.

“What I can’t figure out,” Azagoth continued, “is why you haven’t managed to take care of your business and get back into Heaven.”

Unable to remain still under this bizarre scrutiny, Razr swirled the rum around in his glass. “It’s not like you give me a lot of free time.”

“So it’s my fault?” Azagoth’s voice was smooth as velvet and just dark enough to raise the hair on Razr’s head. One didn’t just accuse the Grim Reaper of stalling shit. Not if they liked wearing their skin.

“Not at all,” Razr replied carefully, because his skin was pretty useful right where it was. “It’s just that I have limited resources in Sheoul-gra. I need more time in the human and demon realms.”

 Spellbindingly sexy and intensely captivating. 
Razr carries a burden that cuts him deep to the soul. That make him a complex and interesting character. He’s so sexy, one could melt if you stand too close. However the battle he fight within himself is far more damaging than any battle field. I loved that Razr is the total alpha but his internal struggle, depth and determination is what make him the angel that he is. 

Jedda is fun, confident and feisty. A unique character in the paranormal world. And one I really enjoyed. Jedda is like the mix of a dark fairy tale and sexy vixen. The strength and emotional depth she carries is as beautiful as the gemstones she needs and desires. She is witty with a bit of sass. She may have her weakness but Jedda is going to give you a run for your money along the way. 
Ms. Ione is truly a master at her craft. In 120 pages she is able to intrigue and pull you into her complex and compelling world. Captivating readers with a fast-paced story and a slow burning romance. Fascinating characters, insatiable romance and secrets that keep the pages flying. Razr and Jedda are one of those couple that will be leaving the reader with a lasting memory.

4 Stars 

Never Surrender is an action packed, emotional, sexy and humorous short story. Ms. Cross gives the reader an amazing cast of characters. Lots of personality and charisma. Easy to relate to and fun to read about. There’s a lot of drama, but it truly works for the story. Weddings tend to bring out emotions, giving a good dose of emotional depth to the story. Some highly steamy moments are tangle within the suspense of the story. A highlight of the book is Candace’s grandmother. That woman…. is worth the read alone. Add in the uniqueness of Ms. Cross’s writing, you get a pretty exciting book. 




Kaylea Cross hooked me from the beginning and didn’t let me down. Ms. Cross is a new author for me. And I’m kicking myself for not knowing about her. With a short story, she has intrigue me and has left me wanting a lot more. Never Surrender is a thoroughly enjoyable book that will have you laughing, keep you excited with action and heat up the pages in naughty ways. Ms. Cross’s Never Surrender is a wonderful addition to the MacKenzie world.

Published March 14th 2017 by Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated

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.

 

 

 

 

5 Stars

 

 Joanna Wylde takes readers on a full throttle ride. 
Mandy is strong, highly independent, laugh out loud funny and a touch of bat sh*t crazy. She carries a strong distrust in men. Fun is ok, but relationships are a no. Her loyalty to family rivals that of even the Reapers. Mandy’s feisty and her personality shines. Her inner thoughts will are insanely comical. Mandy is one of my favorite female characters that Ms. Wylde written. I loved Mandy. 
Shade is bold, demanding and oh my god, my jaw just hit the floor sexy. The Reaper’s national president is rough, rugged and all alpha. He doesn’t ask, he commands. Shade is a man of actions and few words. Under his intimidating and swoon worthy exterior, Shade has a caring heart that not many see. Shade surprise me in many ways. I truly didn’t think I was going like him as much as I do. 
Flippin Fantastic! Shade and Mandy take sexual tension and chemistry it a new level. Their banter is tear worthy funny at times and the passion is so hot, be on the watch for a fire. Actions and emotions are perfectly portrayed through each event within this quick moving storyline. Many humorous moments with the right amount of drama and great characters make Shade’s Lady a very memorable read in the Reaper’s MC world.

EXCERPT:

A brisk March wind blew through Surrender.

“Being a cop doesn’t mean I crave donuts.” Grant Boone glared out the window toward the bakery across the street.

Cooper MacKenzie snorted, “You were a cop.”

Grant’s hands fisted in his lap and his gaze dropped to stare at them as the familiar anger raged through his body. His light brown hair, which was long overdue for a cut, hung down to hide his expression. He knew Cooper hadn’t meant anything by it, but damn, the words still pierced him like a knife to the gut.

“My mistake,” he said. “I was a cop.”

“Come on, Grant. You know I didn’t mean it that way. Hell, you’re still the best there is. Your chief will wake up and realize his screw-up before long. Though I’ve always thought you and the city would clash before too long. Hell, look at you. You look like you walked out of one of those Marlboro commercials. What the hell is a country boy like you doing in Detroit anyway?”

Cooper wasn’t the first person to tell him he didn’t belong in the Motor City. But he’d served the city with a purpose. He’d worked undercover, and he’d been an asset to the force. It wasn’t often they came across a six-foot-five, two-hundred-and-forty-five pound bruiser to work the biker bars and clubs.

“There’s no going back, Coop. I gave that shithole city the best years of my life. And for what? A forced retirement under a cloud of an internal affairs investigation.” Grant set his coffee on the desk and knuckled his eyes. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d slept a full night through. God, was he tired.

About SWEET SURRENDER:

It’s been twelve years since Liza Carmichael stepped foot in Surrender, but after her great aunt’s death she has no choice but to return and settle her estate. Which includes the corner bakery that’s been a staple in Surrender for more than fifty years.

After twenty-five years on the job, Lieutenant Grant Boone finds himself at loose ends now that he’s retired. He’s gotten a number of job offers—one from MacKenzie Security—but he’s burned out and jaded, and the last thing he wants to do is carry the burden of another badge and weapon. He almost turns down the invitation from his good friend Cooper MacKenzie to stay as their guest for a few weeks while he’s deciding what to do with the rest of his life. But he packs his bag and heads to Surrender anyway.

The only thing Boone knows is that his future plans don’t include Liza Carmichael. She’s bossy, temperamental, and the confections she bakes are sweet enough to tempt a saint. Thank God he’s never pretended to be one. But after he gets one taste of Liza and things start heating up in the kitchen, he realizes how delicious new beginnings can be.

review
4.5 Stars 

Suspenseful with a naughty side of sweet. 


 


Grant was forced to retire from his position with the Detroit Police Department. Feeling bitter and a bit lost, he takes the advice of a friend and visits Surrender. Grant is loyal, brave and determined. A good cop and better man. 


Liza has returned to Surrender to settle her great aunt’s estate. She’s not stepped foot in Surrender in over a decade. An amazing baker with a sweet yet naughty side. Liza is a whirlwind of a woman. She stands her ground in anger and danger. You have to love a woman that will put her money where her mouth is. 



Liliana Hart gets your adrenaline pumping in more ways than one with Sweet Surrender. Chemistry, sweet yet naughty passion and suspense fill the pages of this quick, one sit read. Grant and Liza are intense from beginning to end. From their initial meeting, where their chemistry ignites to dodging bullets while running for their lives, the action never stops. Ms. Hart layers depth and quirks within her character’s personalities that make the reader want to know them. It’s hard not to fall hard while in Surrender, Montana. The passion and suspense are perfectly balanced making Sweet Surrender one of my favorite visits to Surrender.
