Indy has been in love with Lee Nightingale since she was
five years old.Indy’s best friend,
Ally, is Lee’s sister and Kitty Sue, the Nightingale’s mom, has been her surrogate
mom since the death of her mother.Indy
has been avoiding Lee for the past ten years, ever since he told her she reminded
him of his little sister.This crushed
her, but she did everything in her power to stay away from him.Avoidance and lying has become second nature
Indy gets involved in a shooting and who can she call.Ally…who in turn gets Lee involved.Little does Indy know, Lee has been pissed as
hell these past few years watching her go from guy to guy and wanting that guy
to be him.He must work his ass off, to
prove he can be the man she needs.
I loved Indy.She’s
strong, independent, fun, loyal and rock n’ roll!I loved that she didn’t just turn into a big
pile of mush when it came to Lee.She
made him work for it.She put up a good
fight and stood her ground.I like that
she got pissed at him and didn’t back down from it.There were some things that pissed me off
about Indy too.Such as, NEVER FREAKING
LISTENING!--But that went along with
her independence…I guess.
Lee is…..hawt!He is
strong, responsible, protective, and possessive and did I say hot…O Hell
Yeah!He sees his opportunity to win
Indy over and he is not taking no for an answer, but he already knows she loves
him.He is smart as a whip and has known
it for years.He just needed to be the
right man for her.I love that he is so
patient.Most alphas in books are not…at
all. But he is one of the most patience that I have read!
I love all the action. I mean how many times can a girl get
kidnapped?Quite a few I guess!I also loved all the characters.I’m guessing that they will all be showing up
in their own books soon, since there are like a bazillion of them!
I must say that I was expecting more of the sexual experience,
since it is Kristen Ashley and Dream Man Oozed it, but the story flowed and
carried so well that in the end I didn’t miss it!
He’s an ass.A
jerk.A pig.A badass….. And I love him!Tack—Kane Allen is Motorcycle Man!Tack is the president of Chaos, a biker
gang.He’s tough, hot, sexy, badass and
loves his women.We know from Mystery
Man that Tack had a thing for Gwen and that didn’t end in his favor.So he’s back to his wild ridin’ ways.Women, booze and bikes.
Tyra met Tack at a Chaos party with lots of booze and
sex.Tack kicks her out.Little does Tack know, Tyra’s back.Not for him…..for a job.She is the new office manager for Ride, the
shop Tack owns.When Tack finds out, he’s
not happy.This starts the back and
forth that occurs between these characters.
There is action, hot sex, kidnapping and lots of blood.
I knew Tack from Dream Man Series and loved him
already.So, that being said his
assholeness rolled off me pretty easily.“Time to get your own bed
darlin’”OUCH!As a female, that would freaking suck.But I overlooked it.
I loved how Tyra was strong and in your face. I like that
she didn’t put up with Tack’s shit and stood on her own two feet.Even though she was falling—hard.I loved how protective Tack was of Tyra, even
when she tried to blow him off.
And one of the biggest pluses of this story is………..ALL THE
DREAM MEN!!!!!!!!!I loved reading about
all of them and catching up with my dream men!Hawk and Lawson!I haven’t read
Wild Man yet so I don’t know the other guys!But I loved catching up with them!
Overall, highly recommended for any Kristen Ashley fan or
anyone who wants a good book!
WOW!If you are
looking for a total erotic tale, this is the book for you!
Alisa, a very sexy librarian, just got told by her ‘boyfriend’
that she is frigid in bed.She is
determined to figure out why she has never had an orgasm…ever.Is it her?Is it her partners?She enters
Come Again, an adult store and things in her life changes.She learns all about orgasms and she likes
She ends up testing sex toys for the company Soloplay under
the anonymous name Sologirl.
Mark is the owner of Soloplay.He loves reading Sologirl’s reviews.Everything she picks ends up being a best
seller for him.Mark decides he wants
Sologirl to try and review a new couple’s line for his company.
Alisa declines this offer.Mark sets out to find out why because he’s desperate to save his
company.Once meeting Sologirl, Mark is
in deep lust. When Mark agrees to be her partner, will sparks fly or does Mark
only want her to improve his business??
It is a romance, so that’s not hard to figure out.
I did enjoy this story and I learned lots about all these
toys that are out there!
I will first off say that I am totally impressed.I was apprehensive while reading the summary
on Goodreads, but after reading the book….I am soooo glad I did!
Twin brothers!!!! HOT!!!!!!!
Two brothers, who look identical, but have two totally
different personalities.Cash is a typical
bad boy, club owner, motorcycle riding hunk.Nash is totally opposite, soon to be lawyer, very smart, very educated
What’s a girl to do?Especially when Nash is dating her roommate and cousin and Cash is too
bad in her mind to want forever.
This story takes you through the
roller coaster ride that is Olivia’s life.Who does she want to be with?Cash or Nash?And what will
Olivia do when a bomb is dropped on her that includes Cash and Nash?
I was totally into this book. I sat for 5 hours straight and
only put it down briefly to get my kids dinner and go through their
backpacks!I liked how each chapter went
through different characters perspectives of the story.I could feel how each of them felt.
I enjoyed the growing connection between Olivia/Cash and
Olivia/Nash.I really enjoyed the twists
and turns towards the end!It was a wild
ride that I would have never expected.The author did a great job keeping my attention and having the story
The epilogue….I learned that this story is to be continued!I need to know when the next one is out!It will be an auto-buy for me!
I highly recommend this book!I got it off Amazon/Kindle for like 4
bucks.Totally worth the money!!!!!!
This story is a continuation of Tara’s first book Seduction
and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers #1).
Claire and Carter are together in their happy little
world.Friends around them are getting
married and they are enjoying their lives.Carter has decided that he wants to make their relationship official and
ask Claire to be his wife.This story is
the journey of this happening.There are
ups and downs and laughs beyond belief.
I really enjoy Tara’s humor she puts into her characters. I told myself I would highlight the funniest
quotes from the book as I read.I found
that I highlighted over 40 different ones!I thought that it would be easy to pick my favorites for this review,
but I’m thinking no.
Some of my favorites:
“Gavin turns around
and looks up at Drew with an angry look on his face.‘I’m going to put corn and hot sauce on your wiener
and then I’ll hit you in the face with it.Hit you in the face with your corny wiener.’ ‘Dude, you are an angry
little man,’ Drew tells him and he shakes his head. ‘You’re a juice bag!’ Gavin
“In honor of the wine
tours that evening, Drew dons a shirt with a picture of a corkscrew on the
front that reads, “I pull out.’”
“’He peed on our chair,’
I complain, giving Drew the two-finger eye salute.‘You puked on my dick,’ Carter deadpans.‘Fine, you win,’ I say with a sigh.”
“’You’re a gigantic,
stinkotic, vaginastic, clitoral, liptistic whore dizzle.”
“’YOU AND YOUR STUPID
RED AND WHITE STRIPED HAT!FUCKING CATS
DON’T WEAR HATS!’ Drew screams in frustration before throwing his phone against
I also love all the pop culture references that Tara
made.Vanilla Ice, Real Housewives of
Orange County and Atlanta, Say yes to the Dress, Brides by Lori…to name a
“Jenny looks over and
sees the horror on my face as I try to block out the mental image of moldy
cheese vaginas singing, ‘Mold, mold baby,’ in the voice of Vanilla Ice in my
This book is mostly humor and if you want to laugh your lazy
Sunday away like I just did, it’s perfect way to do that!
I whole heartedly believe
this book should have been named Sylvie.This was HER book and I LOVE her!
Sylvie is a very strong, independent,
kick ass tough woman.She plays by her
own rules and lives as she pleases.She has
a foul mouth and is truly one of the ‘guys’—from kicking ass to carrying a
gun.She has survived a horrific
childhood and young adult life.She had
only one person in the whole world she counted on---Tucker Creed.
But on her 18th
birthday, when they were supposed to disappear together, he disappeared from
her life.She’s been carrying that loss
along with her own tortured 6 years of hell after Creed left, for the past 16
I felt Sylvie’s pain..It
hurt in my gut.Just the thoughts of
what she went through those 6 years was excruciating.It made me love her strength more.
Creed has been living his
own hell these past 16 years.We learn
about what happened to Creed and why he left through Sylvie’s dreams.The reasons are terrible..horrible and it
wasn’t by choice.
Sixteen years later, Creed
is called to work for Knight!Yes!!!
KNIGHT!!!I was so excited to read about
him in this book.It made me really love
him.Knight showed how caring of a
person he is by being a friend to Sylvie all these years.
Sylvie also works for
Knight.Unbeknownst to him, they are put
together to work a case.
I love how Kristen Ashley
pulled in Knight and HAWK DELGALO!!!Yes
you heard right!Hawk is in this
story!!!(He’s from Kristen’s book
Mystery Man—if you didn’t know.)HOT!
Sylvie and Creed together was
explosive.From their initial fight (which
I can’t blame her for) to the hot and steamy sex!I had to cool off after a couple of those
Their love is something
many people strive for—and yes there are bumps—but their love is pure from when
they were younger and the bond is super strong.I felt a truly emotional connection to them.
If you want
to laugh until you pee your pants, this is the book for you!I
have never laughed so much while reading a book.My husband kept
looking at me like I was crazy.Finally he asked what I was
reading and I gave him a few lines and he laughed too!
Claire is a
single mom in her twenties who is works hard to give her son Gavin a better
life.She is trying desperately to save money to begin her own
company selling her delicious chocolate treats.Gavin is freaking
hilarious.He has a horribly hilarious mouth and you never know
what is going to come out of it!I was rolling. “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do, watcha gonna do when they cut your wiener,” Gavin sang as he pointed his gun at random objects. “Wow, cops have gotten pretty hardcore lately” Carter muttered.” ― Tara Sivec, Seduction and Snacks
“Holy shit, did they just kill off that fish’s wife?” I blurted in shock. “Yep,” Gavin replied. “That big, mean fish ated her.” He said it so calmly – like it was no big deal that a sweet, loving cartoon fish just got murdered. What the fuck was wrong with this movie? This couldn’t be appropriate for kids. I didn’t think it was appropriate for me.” ― Tara Sivec, Seduction and Snacks
that Gavin’s dad is from a one night stand that she had back in college.She tried desperately to find him, but didn’t know his name.It was a wild college party and she left early in the morning before
exchanging the fun morning afters.
4 years and Carter enters her life.He is her one night stand and
he doesn’t remember her…at first.So she sets out to help him
been lusting after a girl he met at a party 4 years earlier and was crushed he
woke up to an empty bed.The biggest thing he remembers about her
is the smell of chocolate—her smell.He has tired looking for her
and came up empty.
supporting characters in this story are freaking hilarious.Claire’s BFF Liz has been there for her for years.Carter’s
BFF is an ogre who has no manners, but wears the funniest shirts.The stuff that comes out of his mouth is hilarious.
highly recommend reading this book.Do I wish there was a meatier
story..yes… But the comedy makes up for anything lacking in my eyes.I will be rereading this book soon. It was piss your pants funny!
“And let’s face it people, no one is ever honest with you about child birth. Not even your mother. “It’s a pain you forget all about once you have that sweet little baby in your arms.” Bullshit. I CALL BULLSHIT. Any friend, cousin, or nosey-ass stranger in the grocery store that tells you it’s not that bad is a lying sack of shit. Your vagina is roughly the size of the girth of a penis. It has to stretch and open andturn into a giant bat cave so the life-sucking human you’ve been growing for nine months can angrily claw its way out. Who in their right mind would do that willingly? You’re just walking along one day and think to yourself, “You know, I think it’s time I turn my vagina into an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar (minus the cheddar) and saddle myself down for a minimum of eighteen years to someone who will suck the soul and the will to live right out of my body so I’m a shell of the person I used to be and can’t get laid even if I pay for it.” ― Tara Sivec, Seduction and Snacks
Micah are finally going to get their happily ever after….or are they.
gotten out of the mob and has created a new life for himself.It
revolves around….Leese and making her happy.
Micah are planning their upcoming wedding.There is build up to
the wedding and the wedding night.The wedding night didn’t boom
as I would have liked.This girl waiting for marriage to do the
deed but, she was in pain…not very climatic.
The Mr. and
Mrs. Only have a night together before everything gets flipped.Micah has people in the mob who want him back and will do whatever they
can to get him back.
up getting threatened and she leaves….with Ryan!This causes lots
of commotion between Micah and his family.I didn’t buy it.I was not sold on this.I kept saying to myself….why
doesn’t she go talk to Micah if she is so in love with him and tell him what the
mob guy threatened??Why run??It
boggled my mind and wasn’t believable.This girl waited all this
time for Micah and then all the sudden she’s just going to leave?? And they buy
The part in
this book that is so far stretched in my mind is Micah decides to buy into a
television show Remade.Remade is a reality show where non-singer
celebrities or news makers go on and learn to sing.Leese gets
approached to be on the show and ends up meeting back up with Micah unbeknownst
to her.This was way to American Idol/Dancing with the Stars for
me for a book.I couldn’t get into it.
meeting back up with each other, the mob guy drugs Micah and he ends up raping
Leese!!!Yes you heard me right!!!!He beat the hell
out of her!I was floored when I read this.I had a
hard time liking or even being fond of Micah after that.
up telling him about the threats and he goes in to save the day.We really don’t learn what he did.
is a YA book and I am not usually reading those, so maybe this is skewed a
bit.But I didn’t feel this book.I didn’t care for
it and I am seriously reconsidering reading #3 in the series.
Well if you couldn't already tell, I am very new to this blogging thing. I am still learning. I do not have all my reviews up currently. You can go to my Goodreads page and see them until I get them moved over. Thanks for stopping by!
Summary: Two hot cowboys meet one city girl and one falls in love.
I had higher hopes for this one. My problem was, I kept comparing it to Lorelei James' Rough Riders the first one. I know that is probably not fair, but the story had the same feel.
The major difference was character build up and connection. With Unridden, I didn't feel that connection between Slade and Jenna. I felt it more with Mustang and Jenna. But, even that connection didn't feel like a lasting one. More like as she called it 'a booty call'.
I like when I read books and the characters feel like I can reach out and touch them. Here. I didn't get that feeling.
That being said the sex scenes were pretty hot with lots of m/f/m action.
This is one of my favorites of this series that I have read.
Quick Summary: Gabi is an victims advocate who goes undercover at Shadowlands to catch a horrible kidnapper who kidnapped her friend and is selling the women on the black market as slaves. Master Marcus is her 'trainer'. Sparks fly.
I love that this book had a story that I could get into. I loved the action and the strong will of Gabi. She is a powerful woman and character in this book. I loved how she stood up for herself and yet..was a total submissive in the bedroom. Marcus...southern boy drawl..was HOT!!!!! I'm pretty sure he is my favorite of the doms. He is loving, caring and I didn't feel that coldness that I felt from the others. He is a dom I would love to take HOME!!!!!!!!!!
I love how this story brings together the characters from the previous stories and lets us know what has been happening with them. Overall great read! LOVED IT!
Okay so once I got past the mystery guy coming into her bedroom for A YEAR AND A HALF!!! and having sex with her...and her not telling him to get the f*** out!!!!!! I fell in love with the story.
Quick Summary: Gwen allows the mystery man to come into her bedroom and sleep with her (well have sex with her) for a year and a half and never asks him his name. So she doesn't know who he is... but he knows exactly who she is. Cabe aka Hawk is her mystery man. Total alpha hot male. He is very protective of what is his and he considers Gwen his.
She is not to apt to that after meeting him in the daylight because of his dominate...me man..take care of you...neanderthal ways. But it ends he wont take no for an answer. And when Gwen's druggie of a sister Ginger gets Gwen into some serious situations....Hawk is there..well watching her like a hawk. He is her protector. There are also 2 other alpha males in this story that have a thing for Ms. Gwen..(she's getting all the hot guys). Lawson and Tack the two other alphas. One a man of the law and the other the leader of a biker club. The author wove these characters into the story quite well. I believed with everything that all of these men had part of them that loved Gwen and wanted to protect her.
There was lots of action and intrigue throughout the story. When i thought the story was over and the 'happy ending' happened...it kept going adding many other layers to the characters and the story. I was very impressed.
I loved Hawk and though he was way on the alpha side...he was a sweetheart and only wanted to protect Gwen from the Bad ass life. The relationship started off creepy..but ended up...well...you'll have to read and find out.
OMG! This book was hot! Meet Brice. Hot cop who is trying to solve the murder of a young girl. He is a Dom...big time. He owns a club with his cousin and friend where he goes and plays. With all the stress of his Detective work, he goes to the club for fun. In walks in a beautiful little red head, terryn. She is very new to the scene and wants to be a sub. Well, she meets the one and only Brice and things get hot between them. The murder strikes again...and Brice is sent to investigate. The parts were the author describes the killings made my skin crawl, but I suppose that was the mood she wanted to set. I don't want to give anything away, but it did take me till almost the end to get clued into who the killer was. The author did a good job writing this.
The scenes at thee club were hot, hot, hot. One scene in particular made me gasp...I loved it. I don't know much about the club scene, but after reading...hmmm....
I really liked that this book was an actual story and the plot went throughout the entire cast of the story. We meed many characters (which I didn't know this was book 2...so now I have to get book 1)--but we get a glimpse of what the characters from the first book are up to. We also meet Brice's partner, Angie, Jenny and many others that pull you into the story. The story is well rounded in my opinion. Not wam-bam...but an actual plot with hot, hot, hot...lovin!
I recommend this book to anyone who loves a steamy read filled with romance, suspense, some BDSM and a hot, hot leading man!
I read several reviews on this book so i dove right in. Its a fairly long book, but it has great character build up.
Jake...oh Jake. I fell hard for this bad boy...who's not so bad. Jake is a rock god and has achieved fame and fortune at a very young age. But never love, because he left that behind when he was fourteen years old. Jake has lost of demons that he is trying to bury, but they keep coming out to haunt him. To me these demons makes him real and i connected with him deeply.
Enter Tru, Trudy. She's a music journalist who long ago was best friends and in love with Jake until he abruptly moved away at fourteen. The magazine she writes for lands a huge interview with The Jake, and Tru reluctantly goes to do the interview.
Sparks definitely fly between them, but it takes some build up before anything happens. Oh did I mention that Tru has a boyfriend...ummm yeah Will. The author does a great job interweaving this triangle throughout the first half of the book. I personally may not have agreed with choices made, but I defiantly felt for all the characters.
The only complaint I have is there are lots and lots of typos. Which made reading parts hard, because i had to go back and reread. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. If you can look past the typos, you will find a very character enriched love story. I loved Jake and Tru. Speaking of typos, please excuse any in this review as i am writing on a tablet and its giving me issues. Happy reading!
Update So after laying in bed last night thinking about Jake and tru I am going to amend my rating to a 5. yes there were many typos but the story was so good I can't knock it. I sooo felt for Jake. I could still fell his love, lust, addiction pain and loss way after finishing the book. Therefore it gets 5 stars from me!
On Dublin Street is a tale of a woman who leaves the states (Virginia to be exact) to escape her demons there. She moves to Scotland, the birthplace of her mother and attends school there. Joss is a strong woman, but has many hurts and flaws. Her parents and sister die at a very early age and it causes her to 'rebel'. She has never escaped her families’ death and lives with it daily. She has vowed never to get close to anyone. This in her mind will get away from the hurt of her families demise. Braden is a Scottish alpha male who is a hot hot hunk! He usually has a hot, tall, blonde on his arm most of the time. From the first time he meets Joss (hot, shorter and brown hair) he is hot. He has his own demons that he is healing from. Mainly an ex that was a cold, gold-digging cheater. Joss is on the market for a new apartment and finds one On Dublin Street with Ellie. Ellie is a beautiful PhD student. Low and behold Ellie's brother is Braden, which is how the two begin to get to know each other. With Joss' not getting close to anyone philosophy, Braden strikes up a deal with her. No strings attached sex. She's all for it. Can they stay that way?? Or will Joss's walls finally come down?? -------------- My thoughts. I loved these characters. Joss..oh Joss. She is such a strong--stand up for herself woman. She is also so hurt inside and 'broken' as she called it over the loss of her family. I felt the depth of her pain. I wanted to cry--even though she couldn't. Braden...hot man. I heard is Scottish accent with each word that was written! It made me have goose bumps! I love that he was strong and wouldn't let Joss go. He knew what he wanted, just had to make Joss see it. This story was a nice romantic story. It didn't have people getting killed or someone attacking (for the most part). It had lots of emotional ups and downs. I highly recommend reading it!
