The Devil's Dust MC has a list of new threats to the club's lifestyle. Dani, to prove her loyalty, is trying to embrace a part of herself that she never knew existed until now. A sinful beast lurking beneath her surface has been awakened and is ready to eliminate anyone that stands in its way. Looking at her stained hands, she rinses the blood from them. She resigns herself to innocence lost and welcomes her thirst for more blood. After a breathtaking turn of events, Shadow is looking at life in a different perspective. Not knowing who he can trust or who he can forgive has left him feeling desolate and alone. As Shadow is laying behind his rifle, he wonders if he can pull the trigger to eliminate the threat. He takes a deep breath and squeezes the trigger, the rifle recoil ignites the fuel that drives him. Retaliations will be required. Boundaries will be shattered. Redemption will be lost. Betrayal so deep, yet they still yearn for one another. Can Shadow overlook Dani’s transgressions? Can Dani overlook the mistrust that Shadow has placed upon her?

My Review
5 Im A Biker Sex God Stars

The Scars That Define Us is book #2 in The Devil’s Dust MC Series by M.N Forby, I LOVED book #1  What Doesn’t Destroy Us here’s a link to my review. I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes.....

 Book #1 What Doesn’t Destroy Us set the bar high and it ended on a killer cliff-hanger. I’ll be honest I did stalk the author ever so slightly begging for a copy of the second book lol ;).

So your asking was it worth it.... hmmmm.... HELL YES it was, this book has you on the edge of your seat from the get go. Will he forgive her, will she forgive him, Shadow and Dani have an incredibly complex relationship but it grabs you and draws you in.

They are well beyond the realms of healthy, normal relationships and they are half way to obsessed and suffocating. For some reason this totally works for them and to be honest it shouldn’t but it does.

This book seems a lot more graphically violent than the first book and that might not be for everyone but if you are a fan of MC books this wont phase you at all.

I’m a fairly recent convertee to MC books and the sexy hunks of biker man, but god Shadow just makes me a puddle of mush. He should be an arsehole, he’s commandeering and rude, he treats Dani like she is property. The thing is I LIKE IT!!!!!! Every feminist in the world has just gasped in disgust but everything about him turns me on!!!!

Jesus let’s just talk about the sex for a minute.... whewwwwww its HAWT!!! As a couple 
they are raw and animalistic and I’d be lying if it didn’t admit that I was squirming in my seat. (The hubbys in for it later lol)

I’m sorry to say that Dani’s mom kind of got her just desserts, Karma’s a bitch baby!!!

This book has some kick ass action as well as the dysfunctional romance and all hail Bobby in all of his badass brilliance.
Thank the lord there is a 3rd book and I can almost guarantee I’m going to be harassing M.N Forby for a copy so watch this space.

I loved this book, its sexy and dirty and just brilliant 5 stars!!!

***Review - The Stark Affair Book One: Heat By Skylar Cross - 3.5 Stars***

***Review***

The Stark Affair Book One: Heat 
By Skylar Cross

3.5 Dirty, Filty Stars

Blurb - Book 1 of the 4-book series THE STARK AFFAIR by Skylar Cross 
Colton Stark is filthy rich. A billionaire playboy who drives fast and plays hard, he enjoys an endless stream of party girls... at his mansion, on his yacht, and in his private jet. 
He's also top of Miami-Dade Police Department's list of suspected narcotics traffickers. 
Tough girl cop Sofia grew up on the mean streets of Miami, unafraid to kick anyone's ass. When asked to investigate Colton, she doesn't even consider it a challenge. 
Until she comes face-to-face with Colton Stark's penetrating blue eyes. 
After a steamy meeting at his South Beach club, Sofia finds herself playing a dangerous but sexy game with her own principles. As evidence mounts of Colton Stark's dirty 
dealings, together they spark a bonfire of passionate heat. 




The Stark Affair Book One: Heat is the first book I have read by this author, I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes....

God where to start with this novella length story, well considering its short Skylar Cross has managed to pack in some serious smut lol!!!

I’m not sure what genre this book is classed as but as far as I’m concerned it erotica with a capital E!!!!

Skylar Cross is a dirty, dirty, dirty minded bunny!!!

If the edgier side of sex makes you cringe then this is not the book for you there’s descriptive anal and some girl on girl action in fact id probably say that there not much vanilla about this story!!

That being said there’s also a deeper story going on in fact I’m totally intrigued. Colton Stark is your typical genius but there’s something going on with his father’s company where he is the figure head but is not actually in charge. Personally I get the impression his character may be based on Ironman himself good old Tony Stark but who knows.

I’m really not sure what to think about Sofia she’s an ass kicking cop that swings both ways, she’s described as looking like Michelle Rodriguez. Other than that I didn’t really get a feel for her character.

I’m not sure what’s really going on with Colton and the ‘Group’ he’s organized but I’m sure the story will unfold and answer some of the questions raised during the next three parts.


This book is short and filthy but I need to know what happens next, Skylar Cross managed to write the prefect suck in start to a series. It finishes just as it starts to get good so roll on part two but for Part one I give it 3.5 stars.

Seaside Hearts
Seaside Summers # 2
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing October, 2014



Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had.  But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

My Review
3.5 Cheese Filled Stars
Seaside Hearts is book #2 in the Seaside Summers Series and book #22 in the Love In Bloom Series. This is the second book I have read by Melissa Foster, I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes....

This book is one of the biggest loads of cheese filled, cheese flavoured, cheese I’ve ever read!!!

Do you know what.... What’s not to love about a cheesy love story?

I’m not sure how old Melissa Foster is but regardless she read Mills & Boon, id actually lay money on the fact that she loved Mills & Boon. Well Melissa so do I, so does my mom and so did my grandma. In my opinion Mills & Boon is so incredibly successful because what they do they do exceptionally well.

That’s how I feel about this author, Melissa Foster does old school cheesy romance incredibly well, you know exactly what you are going to get and you know that you are going to enjoy it.

Jenna is a classic firecracker with a bit of a saucy edge and Pete is an old fashioned 
gentleman, this is classic romance territory and them as a couple works incredibly well.
I liked that they had a deeper connection than just sex and I loved the relationship between Jenna and her girlfriends.

My main issue with this book is that it hinted at being a tiny bit smuttier than normal, hell anal was mentioned. Unfortunately this book is a bit of a tease as it was straight down the line vanilla, nothing wrong with it but I did have my hopes up for a bit of smut lol.

I enjoyed this book; I read a wide variety of romance from YA and NA to contemporary and 
even some dark romances. But I never forget what got me hooked on romance novels to start off with and that’s stories just like this!!

This is a great standalone novel and although I’m tempted to read the books before and after I’m confident that I could pick up another book in the series and not feel confused or left out of the character loops.
This book is the perfect book for a hot bath and a glass of wine, for me it just needed a smidge less cheese so 3.5 stars!

***Review - A Fighter's Desire by L.P.Dover - Gloves off 0.5 & 0.6 - 3.5 stars***

***Review***
A Fighter's Desire by L.P. Dover
Gloves Off #0.5 and #0.6



3.5 Just an Intro Stars
Blurb - Two is always better than one.

Knowing a fighter’s desires and needs are one thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter’s Desire gives you not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that’ll leave you breathless and aching for more.

Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that’s exactly what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing things—including women—and she happened to be the only one they truly craved. However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. Nonetheless, she sure as hell was going to enjoy it.

Part Two: Fighting temptation isn’t easy when you’re constantly around the one person you’ve desired more than any other. Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the end they’d break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man she couldn’t led her down the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to be one of her brother’s best friends. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, and he’s afraid she’ll want more than what he can give her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes. They have no choice but to keep their time a secret, and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

A Fighter’s Desire by L.P. Dover includes books #0.5 and #0.6 in the gloves off series.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I was given this in exchange for an honest review so here goes...

A Fighter’s Desire is literally a tale of two halves lol

Part one is about Ashleigh and the twins Ryley and Camden.

Those twins are naughty, naughty boys and their story starts off promisingly kinky with threesomes and ropes and all sorts lol.

I love the twins they are identical but polar opposites, Ryley is adorable and seems genuinely quite smitten with Ashleigh. Camden on the other hand just seems like an asshole!!!

This short intro to the characters doesn't end like I was expecting but it has definitely made me intrigued to find out what happens in Ryley’s book which is book #2 in the series.

On to Tyler and Gabriella's novella, Tyler is Gabriella's fantasy man and I loved how this story played out.

Tyler might be a player but he seems to really care about Gabriella but I don't get the impression theirs is a happily ever after love more of a enjoy the moment kind of passion.

I loved that Gabriella is a kick ass fighter too but I thought she needed more confidence in herself.

The sex for both couples is steamy but I kind of expected it to be a bit saucier.

These novellas are both short but sweet and do a fab job of introducing all of the main characters.

They have definitely whetted my appetite for the rest of the series. I've got book #1 Tyler's Undoing on my kindle so watch this space for my review soon.


A Fighters Desire gets 3.5 just an intro stars.

Her Perfect Game
Hot & Nerdy # 2
By: Shannyn Schroeder
Out Now!!!

 


Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else…

Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn’t quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she’s entering a “hackfest” over spring break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who’s been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can’t fight the desire that comes rushing back.
  
Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they’re face to face again, he doesn’t know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her that he’s offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?

My Review
3.5 Geeky Love Stars
Her Perfect Game is book #2 in the Hot & Needy Series by Shannyn Schroeder. I read and enjoyed the first book Her Best Shot here’s a link to my review. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes....

Again like the first book in the series this is only a short novel probably closer to novella length.

Although it’s a quick read I do feel like I actually got to know the characters and I started to invest in their relationship.

I like Charlie she’s kind of badass which is fab considering that both her and Jonah are big ole geeks.

I’m going to be honest and say that this book had me picturing the big bang theory with all of the comicon and Joss Whedon references, for me that’s fab its one of my favourite shows lol.

I do have a massive criticism though and it’s that Jonah and Charlie have a history but there just wasn’t enough of a back story. I don’t feel like I really understood why they never worked in the first place. This story posed a lot of questions but didn’t actually answer most of them.

They are a cute couple and I wanted them to be together and happy but a bit more passion would have gone a long way.

I’m not at all sure what to make of Jonah he was sweet but he is like Lenard from big bang he’s super sweet but just not overtly sexy.


Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed this book it’s cute and I’m glad they get a HEA but it just wasn’t my favourite 3.5 stars.

Excerpt


It took a second for Charlie to realize that she was being called a cheater. She stood. “What?” She looked up at the board. She and Override were still in second place, now only by five points, but Jane and her partner were fifty points behind.
“She had an unfair advantage. I wasn’t sure, but I suspected. It’s just not possible.”
Charlie glared at her. “I am not cheating. How could I?”
A nasty smirk stole across Jane’s face. “Someone fed you the answers.”
Charlie’s heart sank. She knew exactly where this was going. “No one gave me anything.”
“Should we ask your boyfriend over there?” She pointed at Jonah sitting by the door.
“First of all, he’s not my boyfriend. Second, he didn’t give me shit. I’ve worked through each task just like everyone else.”
Jane crossed her arms and waited. Carl looked back and forth between Jonah and Jane.
Jonah slid from the stool. “I didn’t give her anything. I didn’t create the challenge. Carl did.”
Of course, Jonah wouldn’t lie about their relationship.
Carl crossed the room to talk to Jonah. The harsh whispers carried across the room. Carl was asking about having a personal relationship with a competitor. Jonah nodded. She was screwed.
Her stomach sank. There was no coming back from this. “Fuck this.” She slammed her laptop shut and looked at Override. “Sorry if you get screwed here too. I did not cheat, but I refuse to get thrown out for doing nothing wrong.”
She slid her computer into her bag and rushed out the door.
“Wait,” Jonah called.
She didn’t, but then he caught her by the arm. “What are you doing?”
Charlie yanked her arm from his grasp. “I’m not going to sit there and be accused of cheating because I slept with you.”
“Carl wasn’t going to throw you out. He knows I didn’t have access to anything he created.”
“Doesn’t matter. If I win, everyone in that room will question whether it was legitimate. Thanks for fucking this up for me.” She turned away, tears clawing at her throat.
“Whoa. What do you mean me? I didn’t do a damn thing.”
“That’s right, you didn’t. All you had to do was deny we had any kind of relationship.”
“Why the hell would I do that? I know you didn’t cheat, and lying wasn’t going to change that accusation.”
“Whatever.” She took a couple more steps before he moved in front of her.
“What’s the big deal? It’s a stupid small-time hackfest.”
“Not for me it wasn’t. I needed this win.”
“Charlie, you have to know that you didn’t really have a chance against Poison.”
Tears welled and burned her eyelids. “Thanks for the vote of confidence. I guess we’ll never know now.”
She tried to push past him, but he laid a hand on her shoulder. “Why are you so upset?”
Charlie swallowed hard. “I needed this win. This was my chance. The prize is Def Con. I can’t afford to get to Vegas and pay for a hotel and shit. And I need Def Con to network and find a job.”
“No, you don’t, Charlie. You’re good enough that all you have to do is send out your résumé after graduation. You won’t need to network. The jobs will be there.”
She swiped at her face, hating every tear that fell. “No, they won’t because there won’t be a graduation. I dropped out.”
He looked stunned, his mouth hanging open, and Charlie skirted around him. She couldn’t look at his face knowing in a moment it would be filled with disappointment. She raced to her room, packed her stuff, and checked out to go back to her regular life.

Excerpt
I’d never given much thought to falling in love. For someone like me, it seemed an impossibility. Why dwell on something that would never happen? I had no interest in chicks for more than what they could give me in one night. Fuck ‘em and then show ‘em the door. There were always clinger groupies, who claimed to love me. But they loved what I could offer them. Sex. A one-night stand. A story to tell their friends about how they slept with a rocker. With Grant McDermott. I was a name. A symbol. Nothing more.
