Early Review: Beautiful Crazy by Kasey Lane

Beautiful Crazy: Kevan Landry and Mason Dillon

(Rock 'n' Ink #1)


She's a rocker with attitude and ink...
He's a sexy suit who gets what he wants

Kevan Landry is trying to keep her life on track and her brother in rehab. If her fledgling marketing firm can sign the hot new band, Manix Curse, it will make a world of difference. Mason Dillon heads the most successful music PR firm in Portland. He's desperate to breathe new life into the company by signing Manix Curse.

The last thing either one needs is a one-night stand with a smoldering stranger...

The stakes are high when a battle for the band-in the bedroom and the boardroom-becomes a battle of the heart. But if these two can set aside their differences, they may find they're the right mix of sexy savvy to conquer both their worlds.


Beautiful Crazy is by a newbie author Kasey Lane. The cover grabbed my attention first and I was snagged with the description. A sexy rocker chick and a hottie guy in a suit.. Yeah, Im going to give this one a whirl. Kevan’s fledgling business needs to sign this band. Mason needs to bring in new talent into the company he works for to keep his job as CEO. The band needs someone to take them to the next level. When Mason and Kevan meet they are just two people in a bar with a strong attraction to each other and a night of passion. Too bad the one night stand follows them into a boardroom the next day when they are both pitching the same band. Kevan is seething and cant believe she’s been played like that. Mason can’t think about anything but getting Kevan back in bed.  The beginning of this book, I wasn’t so sure of. It seemed like the characters were repeating themselves often and I wasn’t sure I liked either one of them all that much. But little by little I grew to like them more when they went on tour and started opening up to each more. By opening up to each other they opened up to us as the readers. By the end I was committed to the story and to Mason and Kevan as a couple. I ended up really enjoying the story despite the semi-shaky beginning. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series and hope it’s either Kevan’s brother or one of the bandmates.

Early review: Archangel's Heart by Nalini Singh

Archangel's Heart: Raphael and Elena

(Guild Hunter #9)

Expected publication: November 1st 2016


One of the most vicious archangels in the world has disappeared. No one knows if Lijuan is dead or has chosen to Sleep the long sleep of an immortal. But with her lands falling into chaos under a rising tide of vampiric bloodlust, a mysterious and ancient order of angels known as the Luminata calls the entire Cadre together to discuss the fate of her territory.

Accompanying her archangelic lover Raphael to the Luminata compound, guild hunter-turned-angel Elena senses that all is not as it seems. Secrets echo from within the stone walls of the compound, and the deeper Elena goes, the uglier the darkness. But neither Raphael nor Elena is ready for the brutal truths hidden within—truths that will change everything Elena thinks she knows about who she is…

Nothing will ever be the same again.

Archangel’s Heart by Nalini Singh is the ninth book in the Guild Hunters Series and we return to Elena and Raphael two years after the end of the last book. Some might be unhappy to return to this powerful couple but I for one have no issues revisiting Elena and Rafael as the seven all revolve around these two and come on, does Singh put out a bad Guild Hunter book regardless of the featured couple?? Nope, she sure does not.  In this book we dont see as much as the Seven as I’d like but we do get glimpses of them as well as a bit of Elena’s Guard. Aodhan does play a bigger part of this book since he goes with Elena and Rafael to Morocco.  I know a bunch of people want an Aodhan and Illium pairing but I'm pretty sure I remember reading that they are NOT going to end up together, but I can see why fans would want this to come to pass.

So anyway, the three of them head to Morocco to deal with the douches that are the Luminata. Ok to be fair not all of them are douchebags but there are more than a few that are. Near to the Luminata compound is a human settlement and when Elena arrives, the whispers start, people look at her as if in recognition. So a good part chunk of this book is the mystery that is Elena’s past. It’s quite intriguing. I had a lot of fun trying to guess the outcome but ended up being mostly wrong, but isn’t that the fun of it?

Overall, it was fun to look into Elena mysterious family tree. I also loved the glimpses into Aodhan past and present. Little by little Aodhan is overcoming his past and becoming someone with one does not mess with. I’m looking forward to more in the Guild Hunter world and I don't see an end anytime soon.

Review: Tank by M. Malone

Tank: Tank Marshall and Emma Shaw

(Blue-Collar Billionaires #1)


Money changes everything...

Years ago, Tank Marshall swore off fighting. He exercises iron control to keep his anger in check. But his mother was just diagnosed with cancer and the deadbeat dad he hasn’t seen in years is back offering an inheritance and a chance at redemption.

There’s only one person that keeps him anchored in the midst of the chaos. One person untouched by violence and money and lies. Emma Shaw.

But the one thing that Tank hasn’t learned yet is that when billions are at stake, there’s no such thing as innocent. Money. Changes. Everything.

I received Tan by M. Malone for free through author Kit Rocha. They were gracious enough to provide some of their readers with a few freebies and this was one of them. I picked this one up to read on a whim, I think it was the title of the book more than anything. I didn't even know what it was about.  It didn't take me long to really start enjoying this book.  Tank has a burning hatred for the man that sired him but circumstances what they are (his mom is sick) he needs the money that his father is offering him. All he has to do is show up once a week so the old man can see him. Before he agrees to anything he decides that it is in his best interest to see a lawyer and keep seeing the same lawyer each week because of the girl that works the front desk.. Emma. He has a raging crush on her and asks her out every week and every week she says no.

Emma hasn’t had it too well as of late, her parents were murdered and all she wants to do is return to university so she can earn her degree. She works two jobs just to try to make that happen. One respectable and one not so respectable. Its a chance meeting at the second job that really has her giving Tank a second look. After he protects her and her friend and after a talk with his dad she decides to give Tank a chance and she never looks back. They basically become inseparable from there but their lives are complicated and Emma has a secret hanging over her head.

The book was entertaining and fast paced. I really enjoyed the characters and the story, though the characters are really what pull this book through. Emma is a warm soul and wants the best for everyone. Tank has some issues mostly with anger and he doesn’t have the healthiest way of dealing with it, but Emma helps. I really liked them together, I felt like they really complimented each other. I felt like there were some holes in the story especially when it came to the death of Emma’s parents. I feel like it was glossed over especially when it came to Emma’s role. I also would have liked to have heard more about Tank’s time in the military but it was barely mentioned. Overall, if you are looking for a quick entertaining read this is a good one. I may read the rest of the series and I may not. It’s still up in air, although, I did like all of Tanks brothers. There are five of them in all.

Review: Red and Her Wolf by Marie Hall

Red and Her Wolf: Ewan and Violet

(Kingdom #3)


Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child’s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed--you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.

She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who’d seek to harm her.

Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He’s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he’ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own.

This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened…

Red and Her Wolf b Marie Hall is the third book in the Kingdom Series. This is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood.  Big Bad has gotten a bad rap… Yes, so he killed grandma but it’s not what you think! I promise. The fairy tales got it all wrong. Ewan has been kept from his mate for 500 years and he can no longer be kept from her. Red or should be call her by her real name Violet has been ignorant of her past for 500 years but she has a destiny to fulfill and now is the time. Danika finally gives Ewan his mates location and he’s off in a shot and just in time. She took on a wolf from the dark and was grievously injured. Violet has hated the wolf that is embracing her for as long as she can remember but she is finding that her memories are not all that they are supposed to be and little by little she realizes that this wolf is someone she can trust when she can’t trust anyone else.

Wolf and Red are on the run, they are running towards Violets destiny but in order for her to do so she has to do two things.. 1. Stay alive and 2. Come into her powers. They have several tasks they have to complete to help Violet come into her powers before the final confrontation. I quite enjoyed the journey while these two learn to trust each other and Violet learns what she can do.. But I’ve got to say, the final battle was a bit anti-climatic. I felt like more power and magic would be thrown around but it all ended pretty quickly. The ending was pretty emotionally charged at least for Danika and had me a bit sad but Violet and Ewan’s happily ever after make up for that. This is the third and final book in the free ebook deal on Amazon but there are still two more books in the Big Bad.

Early Review: Her Naughty Holiday by Tiffany Reisz

Her Naughty Holiday: Clover Greene and Erick Fields

(Men at Work #2)

Expected publication: October 18th 2016

A feast she wasn't expecting!

Clover Greene would sooner crawl into her oven than host family for Thanksgiving dinner. Yet another annual ritual of too much food, served with a side of criticism over "Clover's Bad Life Choices." This year, she needs to distract them all—with a handsome fake boyfriend. And she has the perfect guy in mind.

Contractor Erick Fields is the poster boy for sexy single dads, and Clover has been secretly crushing on him for ages. She certainly wasn't expecting Erick to agree to her insane charade…or to add lots of hot, wicked sex to the deal. If they can pull it off, the worst Thanksgiving ever might give them something to be really thankful for!

Her Naughty Holiday is the second book in Tiffany Reisz’s Men at Work series featuring sexy men that create beautiful things with their hands. Their hands tend to be talented at other things as well. *wink wink*, because it wouldn’t be a Reisz novel without some awesome sexy times. Like the first book in this series this one is also heartwarming with some good laughs involved.

I enjoyed both Erick and Clover; however, I did not love this book as much as the first. That being said I still thoroughly enjoyed it, but when you read the two back to back it’s hard to not compare. Clover runs a successful nursery but is getting ready to close up shop for the weekend. It’s right before Thanksgiving and she can’t bare to deal with her passive aggressive family alone. Thankfully, her awesome teenaged assistant has a single sexy father who is up for being used this holiday season. Erick and Clover have been eying each other and Ruthie has had enough and she takes it upon herself to hook them up for the holidays.

So now that they have determined that Erick is going to be her “Sven” for Thanksgiving, hey decide that its probably a good idea that they get to know each other better on a one on one basis without Ruthie. From here on their chemistry explodes! Its laughs, good sex and Clover worrying about her family and Erick doing his best to calm Clovers nerves. I really liked Erick and Clover together, I feel like they balanced each other well and made a good team. Im happy I got a copy of this book to read. Thanks NetGalley and Harlequin!

Review: Gerard's Beauty by Marie Hall

Gerard's Beauty: Gerard Caron and Betty Hart

(Kingdom #2)

A not so classic retelling of Beauty and the Beast, as seen through the eyes of the villain...

Betty Hart has had it with men. Jilted in love, her life now consists of shelving books by day, watching too much Anime by night, and occasionally dressing up like a superhero on the weekends with her fellow ‘Bleeding Heart’ nerds. Men are not welcome and very much unwanted. Especially the sexy Frenchman who saunters into her library reeking of alcohol and looking like he went one too many rounds in the ring.

Gerard Caron is in trouble. Again. Caught with his pants down (literally) he’s forced to seek asylum on Earth while his fairy godmother tries to keep Prince Charming from going all ‘Off with his head’. Maybe, messing around with the King’s daughter hadn’t been such a great idea after all, not that Gerard knew the silly redhead was a princess. But his fairy godmother knows the only way to save his life is to finally pair Gerard with his perfect mate, whether he’s willing or not.

From the moment Gerard lays eyes on the nerdy librarian he knows he must have her, but Betty is unlike any woman he’s ever known. He thought Betty would come as willingly to his bed as every other woman before her, but she is a woman who demands respect and even… horror of all horrors… love. Is it possible for a self-proclaimed Casanova to change his ways?

Gerard’s Beauty by Marie Hall is the second book in the Kingdom Series featuring the Bad Five the villains in some of the most popular fairy tales, but they are more than tales, they are real! I suspected I knew which fairy tale Gerard is from but we don't find out for sure until a little ways into this book. I didn't feel like this book had quite the same emotional connection as the first book. It was still entertaining but it missed a bit of that. Gerard is what we might call a manwhore, he got himself into a spot of trouble and go thrown out of Kingdom. Danika took the opportunity to introduce Gerard to his fated mate. It is not love at first site between Betty and Gerard.. Maybe a whole lot of lust but Betty is less than impressed with Gerard when they first meet.

Betty ends up taking in the homeless, jobless, confused Gerard and ends up stuck with him for a month. Gerard is cursed with pretty much his worst nightmare as part of his sentencing and is banned from Kingdom for one month. At the end of the month his fate is in Betty’s hands. I liked how this book wasn’t insta-love. It pretty much takes the full month for deep feelings to develop. It builds as they spend more time together and get comfortable. Betty was cute and I enjoyed her even her quirkiness. Gerard, I wasn’t feeling that much at first but little by little he turns himself around. We find out there is more to him than just his cock. If that's all he had there was no way he’s have been able to win Betty over. Overall, it was good; it wasn’t great but a fun quick read. And this one is available for free on Amazon in the three book collection.

Review: Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall

Her Mad Hatter: Hatter and Alice

(Kingdom #1)

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating--or fight for Alice.

So I picked up Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall on Amazon as a freebie several years ago. The cover intrigued me along with the blurb. I'm not sure why it took me so long to actually read it but I’m sad I didn’t get to it sooner. Immediately I liked Danika who is the fairy godmother to the Bad Five. She’s a fairy with some sass and likes to take on a challenge. Her most current challenge? To find the mates of the Bad Five before the year is up or they will be no more.  She’s been trying to find Hatters mate for years but she can sense his time is drawing near as he is retreating more and more into Wonderland and his own madness.

Alice has always been obsessed with Alice in Wonderland the book. She swears when she was 13 that Hatter came to her when she was in the hospital. She’s been in love with Hatter ever since. Alice thinks she is dreaming when she first lands in Wonderland but soon realizes that this is no dream and the Hatter is really there.

I really enjoyed this book, it’s pretty short about 150 pages but it packs a pretty good punch. The ended almost had me in tears but I managed to stay strong and keep it in check lol. I loved how descriptive Marie Hall’s writing was and how she re-imagined Alice and Hatter. She took a well known fairy tale and turned it into her own. Hatter and Alice have some obstacles to overcome including Wonderland accepting Alice and one of its own, but Alice fights.. She fights for what she wants.  I definitely recommend grabbing this one and giving it a chance. Why not, it's free afterall.

Review: The Temptation of Lila and Ethan by Jessica Sorensen

The Temptation of Lila and Ethan: Ethan Gregory and Lila Summers

(The Secret #3)

On the surface, Lila Summers is flawless: good looks, expensive clothes, and a big, beautiful smile. But a dark past and even darker secrets are threatening to bubble over her perfect fa├žade. She'll do anything to keep the emptiness inside hidden-which leads her into situations that always end badly. Whenever she hits bottom, there's only one person who's there to pull her out: Ethan Gregory.

Ethan set the rules a long time ago: he and Lila are just friends. He doesn't do relationships. Although his tattooed, bad boy exterior is a far cry from Lila's pretty princess image, Ethan can't deny they have a deeper connection than he's used to. If he's not careful, he could be in serious danger of becoming attached-and he's learned the hard way that attachment only leads to heartbreak.

When Lila falls farther than she ever has before, can Ethan continue to help as a friend? Or is he also getting close to falling . . . for her?

First response for The Temptation of Lila and Ethan by Jessica Sorensen is WHOA… I was not expecting it to be that heavy. Coming into this book you know that Lila has some issues and there may be more going on than meets the eye, but I was not expecting this… DAMN. Some people have some F’ed up parents but I think Lila’s parents take honors for the WORST PARENTS EVER!!! My heart truly breaks for Lila and her childhood, there was just so much wrong with it and she never really got to know what being a child was like or even what it was like to know your parents love you unconditionally or even at all. Within the first chapter we witness Lila just falling apart. She’s barely kept it together for so long but now everything is coming unglued and all she has left is Ethan. Ethan is almost as damaged as Lila, with an abusive father and his own secret that he has been keeping hidden for years. Ethan sees Lila going down a path he is all too familiar with and he refuses to lose her like he has someone in his past. He is determined to do whatever he has to do to make sure that does not happen again, but in helping Lila, he may do something he swore he would never do again…

I loved both Ethan and Lila, but that is no surprise, they first capture your heart in the first book in this series, as Ella and Micha’s best friends they are around a lot. They are both loyal and caring friends, they may have been side characters but they make their presence known. You wonder what is going on between those two but they are pretty closed lipped about it, even to Ella and Micha. Now they have their own book and their personalities are no less dynamic and there is more to both of them that you ever knew. It starts with Ethan as Lila’s sudo-savior, he’s always rescuing her from bad situations. Ethan has this overwhelming need to protect Lila even from herself. I freak’n loved Ethans determination to help Lila, to help her overcome her demons. Sometimes he’s a bit of an ass but when it comes down to it, he always does the right thing. Lila has always been so pampered she basically doesn’t know the basics of living and it’s a bit amusing to watch Lila learn things that most people have known since their teens or younger. Things like doing laundry or doing the dishes, getting a job, paying bills… You know living, but she has never had to do any of those things. There is no way Ethan is going to do those things for her; he gives her a swift dose of reality. While he is teaching Lila things, she is teaching him things, like how to care again. Ethan has long since closed himself off from caring about anyone, he feels like he has failed everyone he has cared about and doesn’t deserve it. His story isn’t as drastic as Lila’s but it has affected him all the same. These two end up being pretty perfect for each other, as different as they seem on the outside they are pretty similar on the inside. While they are busy fixing the other, they end up fixing a bit of themselves in the process.

The story itself is fast moving, I read this all in one sitting and could not put the book down. This is not surprising for a Jessica Sorensen title, she has a way of pulling you in and not letting you go until the end. You come to love her character and care what happens to them. In this book, it is such an emotional journey for both Ethan and Lila. They both have demons they are holding onto from their pasts and before they can move forward they have to come to terms with the past. Lila’s journey in particular is hard fought and amazing. I don’t want to give anything away but it about breaks your heart as she reveals things about her past and by the end while not fully healed she is well on her way to a better healthier life. Ethan’s back story the part with his parents makes you want to rally on his side, that is no way for a child to grow up and story you hear all too often. The other part of it, I was kind of ehh on, it was interesting but I didn’t always buy it. At times it felt forced, but it did add a bit of interest to the story. Overall, I loved this book, maybe not as much as Ella and Micha. I didn’t quite have the same book hangover afterwards but it is another excellent addition to Jessica Sorensens collection!

Review: Club Wonderland by Christine d'Abo

Club Wonderland: Gael Hernandez and Alice White

(Friends and Benefits #2)

Alice White isn’t used to being ignored. So when the object of her lust does just that, she’s bound and determined to get his attention. Her pursuit leads her to Wonderland, the kind of club she’s only read about, and suddenly Alice is craving something she never knew she needed.

Gael Hernandez wants to be the youngest partner at his prestigious law firm, and not even a certain tempting legal assistant can distract him from his goal of financially helping his family. Until she shows up at his favorite club and surprises him with an interest in being restrained. But the BDSM lifestyle is no game to him, and he won’t take things further until Alice is schooled into submission.

After a taste, Alice wants more. She offers to be Gael’s sub for one weekend, with nothing forbidden and no boundaries. In a few short days, he gives her the strength to be the person she’s always wanted to be. Now Alice just needs to convince Gael that he can dominate in the bedroom, and submit to love.

Club Wonderland by Christine d'Abo is the second book in the Friends and Benefits Series, I read the first book and really enjoyed it so I was happy when this book came up to request. I have always enjoyed d’Abo. I have to say, I preferred the first book in this series to this one. The character development in the first book was better, we had a better understanding of the characters and it was more humorous. Not that this book was even remotely bad, I definitely enjoyed it. The character development in this book wasn’t as good. We did learn some about Alice and her difficult relationship with her mother and her desire to please people. It was fun watching her explore her sexuality as well. Gael comes to us knowing what he likes and how he likes it, there is no exploration for him here, for him his exploration is more emotional. He’s never really had any emotional attachments to his subs and never really wanted one. Right now he has a lot at stake and Alice could blow all of that out of the water but I liked how he went for it anyway after a whole bunch of heming and hawing lol. Gael, while I did really like him he’s a great intense Dom but he is not as developed as Alice. He remains a bit of a mystery. There was also a bit of issue with the timing in this book. The beginning was a bit slow and the ending a bit rushed. Story was fun and since it is fairly short it did move along pretty quickly.

Review: About a Dragon by G.A. Aiken

About a Dragon: Briec the Mighty and Talaith

(Dragon Kin #2)

C’mon dragon, light my fire…

For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by—wait for it—a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure…or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she’s the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he’s in for a surprise…

Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he’d counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It’s embarrassing, really, that it isn’t this outspoken female’s magicks that have the realm’s greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different—and if he doesn’t tread carefully, what he doesn’t know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race…

About a Dragon by G.A. Aiken is the second book in one of my all-time favorite dragon series: the Dragon Kin. G.A. Aiken brings us Briec the Mighty whose arrogance knows no bounds! I’m surprised that there is room for more than himself and his ego within any city limits, he’s that bad. You would think a character with an ego a mile wide would be annoying, but no, G.I. Aiken knew exactly how to pull this one off. She gave him a mate that can stand up to him and put him in his place. So his arrogance became a funny quirk instead of a serious character fall. And really can any other character type pull off arrogance quite like a dragon? Not so much, I mean really, I’d be cocky too if I was a dragon. Lol

I loved both Briec and Talaith, both were freak’n funny on their own, bring them together and the laughs were plentiful! We basically met Talaith when she is being dragged from her bed and tied up by the townspeople to be burned as a witch. When Briec runs across this scene he takes in her courage and decides to “rescue” her, AKA kidnap her for himself. However, Briec being Briec, he thinks she would be happy that he abducted her and pretty much said she is to be his sex slave. Talaith being Talaith did not so much appreciate that.. sure she appreciated the “rescue” but she wasn’t so sure that this was much better. From the minute of her rescue the sparks are flying between these two, their form of foreplay turns out to be arguing. Some of the fights they picked with each other were just ridiculous but highly amusing. These two will have you in laughing from beginning to end.

Talaith is a total smart alek and pretty badass I have to say. Just when things really start heating up, she takes off from Briec leaving him heart broken. This is where we really get to see her badassness kick in, sure it was spoken of, but after this point to get to see her training in action. This series is full of some serious female ass kickers; which is my fav! Briec is more than just a pretty face and ego as it turns out. He’s actually a warrior who takes exception to anyone trying to take what is his and for now, Talaith is his… but he’s sure he’ll tire of her eventually, maybe in a couple hundred of years… In an epic battle Briec manages to do some serious damage to the enemy as does Talaith. Together they can do some serious damage. Besides Talaith and Briec, we have lots of meddling dragons from Briec’s family as well as Annwyl the Bloody who ends up in the book quite a lot which is fine by me as I quite enjoyed her in the first book as well and she is just as contrary as always. If you haven’t been reading the Dragon Kin series you’ve been missing out, especially if you like to laugh and enjoy a good dragon story. I’ve pretty much fallen in love with this book as well as the series.
