ARC Review: Dirty Wicked by Shayla Black 

dirty-wicked-tour-banner

 

 

11-5-dirtywickedFrom New York Times bestselling author, Shayla Black…

After being framed for a crime he didn’t commit, former private eye Nick Navarro has nothing but revenge on his mind—until a woman from his past returns to beg for his help.

Beautiful widow Sasha Porter has been hunted by his enemies. Desperate, she offers him anything to keep her young daughter safe, even agreeing to become his mistress. The last thing either of them want are emotional entanglements but as they entrap the ruthless politician who arranged Nick’s downfall and passion sizzles between them, danger closes in.

Will he choose love over vengeance before it’s too late?

Shock knocked the air from her lungs. “You’d want someone giving you whatever just because you commanded it?”

“The commands are for your psyche, sweetheart. That way, you can tell yourself that you didn’t have a choice, that of course you didn’t like bedding down with a rapist. But honestly, I’m not going to do a damn thing to you until your body is good and wet and ready.”

She digested his words in a panic and shook her head. “That may never happen.”

His jaw tightened. “If I can’t get you hot, I don’t have any business between your legs. If you can’t let go because you’re afraid I’ll hurt you, I’ll persuade your body otherwise. That’s a promise.”

How was she supposed to respond to that? “Um, I’m sure you’re perfectly capable of…arousing a woman. I meant that I may disappoint you if you’re expecting some vixen. I—I’m not very sexual.”

Nick stilled, then a smile quirked up the side of his mouth. “You will be.”

Those words filled her with part dread—and if she was honest—part anticipation. Always, she’d been the good girl. She’d been a virgin on her wedding night, done her best to be a lady, even in the bedroom. Somehow, she didn’t think Nick would appreciate her circumspect nature or accept her lying back and sorting through her mental to-do list during sex.

Then again, what choice did she have? Faking a few moans would be much easier than actually orgasming with a virtual—and very dangerous—stranger.

Sasha thought back to his touch on her breast, the way he’d rocked his hips against her. She’d felt something, far more than she expected. Maybe it would be enough to see her through.

“I—I’ll do my best not to disappoint you,” she murmured finally.

A laugh played across Nick’s wide mouth. “Don’t worry. I plan to be thoroughly satisfied.”

review
 4.5 Stars 
Shayla Black packs the punch of a full novel with Dirty Wicked. Nick is fresh out of prison from a crime he didn’t commit. Sasha is on the run after the death of husband. One is set on revenge and the other just trying to keep her daughter alive. Realizing each other is a piece to the answer, Sasha shows up on Nick’s doorstep. Just as Nick decided to hunt her down. The sight of Sasha with her little girl on her hip, drenched from the rain, reignites the pull Nick feels towards her. Making his priority protection and not revenge.
The title says it all. Very dirty and completely wicked. Ms. Black gives readers an intriguing story, well written plot and oh so sexy. Nick is an alpha of the best kind. Sasha strength is beyond remarkable. Hate and fear brought them together. The love they discover between them changes the lives of all three of them.
Another scorching hot addition to the Wicked Lovers Series.

EXCERPT

    “Oh, fuck. You’re so beautiful. You need this now, don’t you? Yeah,” he agreed when she nodded frantically. “Let it take you under. Let me hear you scream.”

    Lily couldn’t think of anything she wanted more. As she circled her hyperaware nerve endings again, her body jerked. Desire surged. When Stone bent to take her nipple in his mouth, she clasped the back of his head and anchored him to her. Not that he’d do anything except help her drown. But this time nothing would be sweeter.

    He dragged a hand up to her other nipple and tangled his fingers with her own. Together, they manipulated the tip of that breast while he sucked the other hard and scraped the very tip with his teeth.

    Sensations mounted again. She felt like a vessel filling up with blood, with need, with an imminent explosion. It was right there . . .

    Her legs shook. Her hips jerked. She whimpered, strained for it. She tasted need.

    But she couldn’t seem to fall over the sweetly sharp edge.

    Lily pressed harder against her clit, narrowing her circles, focusing on just how good this was going to be. The seconds ticked off in her head, slowly becoming minutes. The exquisite need was its own form of hell, and she couldn’t seem to escape.

    The torture dragged on, and she saw no way out. She squeezed her eyes shut, feeling defeat begin to creep in.

    Stone sprang into action, popping her nipple from between his lips and grazing her ear with his lips. “You got this, baby. Focus on my voice and close your eyes. Yeah, I know that’s hard, but I’ve got you.”

    Oddly, she already believed that.

    “Picture yourself naked and me standing over you, stroking my cock. You know I’m going to tell you how sexy you are and how much I want you. Imagine that I’d fall to my knees between those pretty thighs. When you hold your arms open to me, I’ll go right into them. Then I’m going to kiss you, touch every lush, tingling curve of your body, and when you’re begging, that’s when I’ll slide inside you. Deep. That’s when I’ll stroke you slowly and thoroughly and make you claw my back as you come.”

    As he spoke, her desire and racing blood clashed, merged. Everything inside her roared to a screaming crescendo. The wall she’d been slamming into, preventing her from falling over, disintegrated. She envisioned exactly what Stone told her to picture. She saw herself being not just perfectly able but eager to lie back and welcome him inside her as he gave her mind-blowing pleasure and she surrendered herself completely.
review
4 Stars

Lily is a complex yet sophisticated character. I instantly liked her. She has a past that plagues her on every level. Yet she finds a way to continue on. She knows her weakness and works hard to keeps herself balanced. When push comes to shove, Lily stands her ground. Her strength and will are beautiful and amazing. 


Stone is commanding, demanding and very much in your face. An ex con and a man on a mission, Stone hits a bump in the road that he was not expecting. A natural dominate and born protector with a gentle touch and a mountain of patients. Upon first meeting I was very iffy about ste patients. Upon first meeting I was very iffy about Stone, by the end, in love. 


Shayla Black sizzles the pages while deeply hitting your heart. Falling in Deeper is one of the darker tales within the Wicked Lovers Series. With elegance and grace Ms. Black dives deep into sensitive issues, pulling on the heartstrings hard. Lily and Stone’s dynamic complement each other so well. The compassion, intense passion and all the emotions make Falling in Deeper one of my Wicked Lovers book. A remarkable read!

During his decade as an international pop star, Jesse McCall has lived every day in the fast lane. A committed hedonist reveling in amazing highs, globetrotting, and nameless encounters, he refuses to think about his loneliness or empty future. Then tragedy strikes.

Shocked and grieving, he sheds his identity and walks away, searching for peace. Instead, he finds Bristol Reese, a no-nonsense beauty scraping to keep her family’s business afloat while struggling with her own demons. He’s intent on seducing her, but other than a pleasure-filled night, she’s not interested in a player, especially after her boyfriend recently proposed to her sister. In order to claim Bristol, Jesse has to prove he’s not the kind of man he’s always been. But when she learns his identity and his past comes back to haunt him, how will he convince her that he’s a changed man who wants nothing more than to make her his forever?

 

 
review

4.5 Stars

Pure Wicked is a treat for the fans of the Wicked Lovers Series.

 

Jesse McCall was introduced to readers in Decadent, book two of the Wicked Lovers Series. A Rockstar, bad boy with the reputation to go with. A man who got what he wanted, when he wanted. Fully indulging in his lifestyle, Jessie’s life was on a dangerous path. Fast forward 10 years, tragedy strikes very close to his heart. While cleaning up his own act, his friend and band mate, continued to walk a fine line between life and death, and lost.

In a moment of unexpected chivalry, while laying low, Jesse’s eyes open to what he wants and truly needs in life.  A changed man, Jesse learns what love and real passion truly are.  Like all men of the Wicked Lovers series, they fall hard and fast. The chemistry is intense and off the charts. The passion is wickedly sexy and scorches the pages.  I loved seeing how some time and growing up made a bad boy into a wickedly good man.  Shayla Black knows how to raise the temperature and cause a reader’s heart to race.

Top Reads of 2014

Top Reads of 2014

 

Wow, where has this year gone!  I can’t believe that Christmas is now over and the new year is upon us. It has been an amazing reading year for me.  I read 119 books.  Woot!  That is a new record for me!  I have found new authors that I have come to love. Had some wonderful recommendations that I would have never read otherwise.

 

So here are my top read for the year. Now mind you some of these book may not have been released in 2014, I did however read them this year, so they count!! LOL!

 

In no particular order:

 

Callum by Melissa Schroeder ( Cursed Clan Seires)

Claimed by Stacey Kennedy (Club Sin Series)

Forever Wicked by Shayla Black (Wicked Lovers Series)

Reaper’s Stand by Joanna Wylde (Reaper’s MC Series)

Surive To Dawn by PJ Schnyder (London Undead Series)

Hawk by Patricia A. Rasey (Sons Of Sangue Series)

Dirty Little Secret by Laramie Briscoe (Heaven Hill MC Series)

Preistress Dreaming by Yasmine Galenorn (Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon Series)

I really stepped out of my comfort zone of reading this year. Most people know me as a paranormal girl. I like the things that bite. LOL!

I started reading a lot of contemporary romance this year and have found a passion for MC romance. I also have found a love of military men with lots of tattoos that just kick ass. I am amazed that I read so many books this year but also that I branched out and read things that I normally wouldn’t have.  One of my favorite reads this year was a cowboy book.   I would have never read a cowboy book had it not been recommended to me.  That’s the wonderful thing about reading what I do is that through all the people I’ve met I’m always going to find something new to read. I can’t wait to see what 2015 is going to bring to my world of reading!!

1001 Dark Nights: Forever Wicked by Shayla Black

FW_1001-Dark-Nights_Shayla-Black_300dpi-200x300Forever Wicked

Wicked Lovers, Book 7.75

They had nothing in common but a desperate passion…

Billionaire Jason Denning lived life fast and hard in a world where anything could be bought and sold, even affection. But all that changed when he met “Greta,” a beautiful stranger ready to explore her hidden desires. From a blue collar family, Gia Angelotti wore a badge, fought for right—and opened herself utterly to love him. Blindsided and falling hard, Jason does the first impulsive thing of his life and hustles her to the altar.

Until a second chance proved that forever could be theirs.

Then tragedy ripped Jason’s new bride from his arms and out of his life. When he finds Gia again, he gives her a choice: spend the three weeks before their first anniversary with him or forfeit the money she receives from their marriage. Reluctantly, she agrees to once again put herself at his mercy and return to his bed. But having her right where he wants her is dangerous for Jason’s peace of mind. No matter how hard he tries, he finds himself falling for her again. Will he learn to trust that their love is real before Gia leaves again for good?

review5 of 5 Stars

From the moment we got our first glimpse of Jason and Greta in Logan’s book of the wicked lover series, I knew there had to be more to the two of them than the dominant submissive relationship. They are the opposites attract couple.

Jason Denning is the powerful and wealthy man who is used to getting what he wants, pretty much when he wants it. He is also a sexy Dom at our favorite club, Dominion. He comes from the corporate high class world where things like marriages and children are arranged and contracted. Love is not a word Jason knows the meaning to. Jason has to learn that there are things money can’t buy.

Gia Angelotti aka Greta, is what you would call a good woman. She a civil worker, kind hearted and loyal beyond belief to her family, but she also had secret needs. Joining club Dominion To express and learn about personal side, Gia got more than what was included with her monthly dues. Her connection with Jason lead to be more just a dominant submissive relationship, he got her to marry him. On their wedding night, while eloping in Vegas a tragic accident the falls upon Gia’s family. She leaves to care for her family. Meanwhile not speaking with Jason for almost a year.

Jason and Gia have to have one of my favorite stories from the wicked lover series. Touching, thought-provoking, emotional and sexy as hell, these to go on a roller coaster ride that shakes up both their lives. They both are so different and I think that what makes them so good together. He wants nothing more to have that woman by his side to be able to provide for her.

Gia wants to be loved, not just take care of. Gia is special because she gets to teach Jason what love truly is and that money can’t buy true happiness.

A must read for anyone who enjoys the Wicked Lover Series or a good d/s story.

Surrender to Me by Shayla Black

surrender layout2.inddSurrender to Me

Wicked Lovers, Book 4

A secret fantasy.

Hunter had everything until a bullet put his career as a Navy SEAL on hold. Restless and in need of distraction, he accepts an intriguing proposition. Restless and uncertain about his future, he accepts an intriguing proposition: share an acquaintance’s girlfriend and fulfill her fantasy of a ménage. It should have been just a night of sexual adventure between three consenting adults. But Kata is like no other girl Hunter has ever met. By turns audacious and sexy, then vulnerable and aloof, she’s a heartbreaker he’s determined to master. But he needs more than one night. And he wants to do it alone.

An uncontrollable obsession.

Kata never expected to leave her comfortable relationship and explore something so dangerously forbidden with a stranger. Hard as she tries to resist, the guilty pleasure overwhelms her, and she surrenders herself, inch by inch, to the hardcore man who wants her for himself. Consumed by blazing desire, they’re soon threatened by the shadows of the past. And now to keep Kata safe, Hunter makes her a bold proposition of his own. Saying yes will destroy her heart. But saying no could cost Kata her life.

review

Surrender to Me was an emotional and sexual power house of a novel.

Hunter, who is what I call an Alpha’s alpha.  He’s complex and like a fire cracker waiting to go off. A Navy Seal and a Dom, he has the confidence needed to be both.  Things he wants don’t just slide through his fingers.  What was to be a night of fun, stops him in tracks.  Going all out, like on a mission Hunter goes after Kata and there is no stopping him.  I still am not sure what I really think of Hunter.  I don’t quite think he is the “means asshole” that he is proclaimed to be, but I don’t really love him either.  There were part of him I enjoyed and times I just wanted to snack him upside the head.

Kata is her own woman.  She is strong willed and independent.  She is the one who controls her life. When a friend set up a b-day party for Katas twenty-fifth in Vegas, Ben not only gives her a party he tries to deliver her fantasy of a ménage. In walked Hunter hitting her like a ton of bricks.   She has baggage that makes men like Hunter, throw up the red flags.  Kata learns that “What happens in Vegas”, doesn’t always stay in Vegas.  Katas mind and body conflict badly when it comes to the domineering man that is Hunter. Getting lost in a man is one thing, loosing yourself to a man is another.

I have read many of the Wicked Lovers Series books, and Surrender to Me is hands down my favorite of the six that I have read.  Yes, I will admit that I have become addicted to Ms. Blacks naughty and steamy talent for writing romance.   She knows how to deliver a book that is hot, dangerous and intense.   It also makes you look outside the box.  Surrender is not quite like the pervious in the series.  I found the emotions get a bit deeper in this one.  A powerful read!
