Into the Fire

Compass Boys Book 2

Release Date Nov. 28, 2017



James Compton is a man of two worlds. For half the year, he’s Seth’s oldest boy, working with his family and the horses on Compass Ranch. The other half, he’s Jamie, a daring smokejumper on the West Yellowstone Squad. Those two halves make him feel whole, happy, satisfied. Until he meets his boss’s daughter, Ivy…

Ivy Wagner’s life should be complete. College degree in hand, she’s excited to embark on her career as a large-animal vet. Add in the attention of one very sexy James Compton, and her future should be all sunshine and steamy shared showers. However, a shattering loss in her past ensures Ivy will never date a smokejumper…no matter how perfect for her James may be.

As the couple grows closer, it’s clear they’re headed for a day of reckoning. Ivy can’t lose someone she loves to a raging wildfire, and James may be incapable of giving up a vital part of himself, of living half a life.

When James faces his own loss, the pair are forced to confront their individual demons. What will they willingly let go of…and what will they choose to fight for?

Laramie Briscoe knows how to hit your heart hard.

 

Drew Walker watched his true love walk out of his life.  After ten years, a long string of nameless women and few falls into a very dark places, Drew has become a damn good man. Strong, hard working, and a good looking man. I do believe Drew is a fine southern gentleman under his badass biker exterior. Drew is the best of Liam and Tyler together. That’s saying something.

 

Charity Thomas wanted nothing more than to not be like her stripper mother. Walking away from home leaving a huge chunk of her heart behind was the hard decisions she’s had to make. Ten years and a dream under her belt, Charity is summoned home, a better woman than before she left.  Charity is just as brave as all the Heaven Hill women. Smart with a huge heart, she found a confidence during her time away that helped her become a fine woman.

 

With each book Ms. Briscoe completes, the level of emotional depth and passion continuously increases. The words become emotions the reader easily feel, making the story more life like in the process. Drew and Charity’s story has once again exceeded any level of expectation that I have for Ms. Briscoe’s books.

 

From beginning to end the reader is able to feel the heartache, sadness, loss, love, excitement, and freedom right along with Drew and Charity.  It’s a bumpy ride with a bit of suspense that leaves your heart pounding in more ways than one.

Club Sin Series, Book 7

Pub Date Oct 27, 2015

Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept

 

Dmitri and Presley—the scorching-hot couple who started it all in Claimed—return to save Club Sin in the exhilarating new short novel from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.

Dmitri Pratt is living out his dream. Not only does he own the ultimate playground for the BDSM lifestyle, he’s found a special connection with his deliciously sexy sub, Presley Flynn, the woman who complements him in ways that go far beyond the bedroom. But when an anonymous blackmailer threatens to expose the elite, high-profile members of Club Sin in a notorious tabloid, Dmitri’s perfect world spirals out of control.

Before she met Dmitri, Presley never imagined she would find a Master who could deliver on all her hottest fantasies. Dmitri’s love and his sensual artistry surprise her every day, until he suddenly turns distant and cold. For the first time, Presley wonders where Dmitri’s heart truly lies: with her, or with Club Sin. As the life they’ve built together begins to crumble, Presley can only trust that Dmitri has what it takes—to defend what’s his, and win back the woman he cannot live without.

Mine is intended for mature audiences.

 

review

4 Stars 

Stacey Kennedy concludes the Club Sin series with an emotional and sexy tale that will leave the reader satisfied as any good Dom would.

Presley and Dimitri hit a snag in their relationship as trouble falls upon Club Sin’s doorstep. Emotions fly and trust is tested as control slips from the Masters hands. Watching Dimitri struggle was something of a surprise. He discovered a new side of himself that makes him a better man. Presley has grown so much since meeting her in Claimed. Confident and strong, she stands up for herself, even to her Dom. Bringing out a new woman within herself. One you have to smile at and be proud of.

An exceptional finish to a fabulous series. Stacey Kennedy gave her readers an amazing look at the many sides of BDSM. Tasteful with real and raw emotions. It’s only right that the couple that started this memorable series, Dimitri and Presley, be the ones to finish it.

Dark-Hunter Reading Challenge

I am a huge Dark Hunter fan!  Sherrilyn Kenyon was one of the first PNR authors that I discovered.  I fell in love and devoured the series. I even have my very own bow and arrow tattoo!!!  When I started reading about the Dark-Hunters, Ash’s book has been out a few months.  Needless to say I had a lot of reading to do.  I read 9 books in 2 weeks.  That was a record for me at the time.  I have read every book, some more than once.  If you count all the short stories, there are thirty-two stories in this series to date.

When I finished reading Styxx’s book, I was almost floored.  I loved the book so much it made me want to go back from the beginning and get lost in this adventure all over again.  So I decided to make my own reading challenge this year!
