Jared

I’m not your boyfriend. I’m not the guy next door. I don’t even play nice.

My hands twisting in your hair, my whispered demand in your ear—I’m the fantasy you’ll wish you never had.

When I’m through with you, every inch of your body will know where I’ve been. Your only thought will be the insatiable ache between your legs as my name drags across your lips. You won’t crave more, you’ll beg for it. Because I’m not just a cocky smile with military hardened muscles you paid five grand for—I’m the experience you’ll never forget.

One night with me and you’ll know exactly why women pay me to be rough.

Phoenix Dixon was the epitome of what you’d picture a rock God. With chiseled abs, bright blue eyes and hair that would make any woman envious, he owned the stage for DIXON.

Hadley Anders was just a typical woman, until the night she attended a DIXON concert. She’d always been a fan of the group, especially the lead singer Phoenix Dixon. She never expected that her life could change in the blink of an eye.

But, what Dixon wants Dixon gets.

REVIEW: Just One Spark by Jami Wagner

All Beth Moyer wanted was a one-night stand, an evening to relax and cut loose before she went to work at her new grown-up job. Instead, all she got was a few minutes that left her mortified and another reason why you can never trust a man.

Maverick Mitchell is ready to prove he’s learned from his mistakes and move forward. But before it’s time to buckle down, one last fling won’t hurt. Or so he thought. On the first day of his new start, the feisty redhead he met over the weekend is the first person he sees.

An office romance isn’t the smartest idea. Sneaking around is an even worse one, but neither can deny the fire that has sparked between them. Considering Beth and Maverick are competing for the same position and only one will be offered the job, they can only hope that every choice they’ve made doesn’t end up in flames.

Sneak peek

“Shane, you can’t see the future. You are human. We all know the risks of being in this line of work but we also know the rewards that come with it. Shane what we do, what you do is amazing. We protect those who can’t protect themselves and sometime Shane we are going to get hurt and sometimes we lose people but the important part to remember is that we win Shane, we get to see how this ends, we get to end it.”

Shane looked deep in to my eyes and let out a sigh, “How do you do it baby? How do you live through what you lived through and still see hope? How is it that you can look at the world and see so much and hope? And not only do you see hope but you spread it baby. You make me believe that there is a better tomorrow and that the world isn’t just shit. You are my light darlin.”

I couldn’t help the tear that fell down my cheek. I know Shane thought I was his light but he was mine and he was the one that showed me that the world can be a beautiful place. He is the one that showed me what love is, he showed me a world that I didn’t think existed.

“You know more and do more than you think Shane. You don’t even see how truly amazing and perfect you are.” I leaned over and kissed him gently on the lips, forgetting about my banged-up face. I flinched when Shane put his forehead on mine, I tried to hide it because I knew he needed this closeness but he saw right through.

“Shit baby I’m sorry. Let me take a look.” Shane inspected my face and made a growling sound from deep in his throat. His eyes filled with so much anger, I could feel it coming off him in waves. I placed my hands on his.

4/5

This was a powerful and at times violent romantic thriller and a great addition to what is fast becoming an addictive series..the heroes of these books seem to be magnets for the most sadistic of enemies and as a consequence the small town where the action takes place is fast becoming murder central….Collision can be read as a standalone but for the full backstory and appreciation of the characters it is better to start with Double Take …the first in the series ……

Told from the perspective of the two main characters, the narrative included flashbacks to serious events in their pasts……. in addition the killer’s thoughts and motives were interwoven throughout …I particularly liked the camaraderie between the specialist investigative team members which was totally believable full of humour, friendship and love ….furthermore concerns I raised regarding characterisation in the first book no longer applied…

The story was fast paced and really dark at times; the author skilfully created an unsettling atmosphere of menace and uncertainty as the plot twisted and turned…as in the case of the first book the format was in the style of a whodunnit and the conclusion was suitably unexpected and shocking …..

With it’s gripping plot and surprising finale I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in the future.

Veronica Webber is single again after being in a loveless marriage way past its expiration date. For the first time in a very long time, she feels free and after being burned so badly by love in the past, any thought of romance is the last thing on her mind.

In walks a man from her past, Trevor Allen, a tall, dark, and handsome womanizer who is usually all about the bottom line. For Trevor that bottom line has always been made up of the countless notches on his bedpost. But when he sees Veronica after so many years, he can’t help but be drawn to her and know her again… even if that means being friend-zoned from the start.

As this unlikely pair spends more and more time together, they quickly realize that there might be something between them that goes past “just friends.” But there’s just one tiny detail that makes this situation slightly more complicated… Trevor was Veronica’s ex-husband’s best man at their wedding nine years ago.

So when past mistakes and indiscretions come back to haunt them, will their happily ever after end before it even gets started?

Or will the best man win this time.

4/5

The third in the End Game series…. this was a great final installment in what has been a dark and fascinating erotic trilogy…..well written with a plot that hurtles at a fast pace to the conclusion…

There were so many twists and turns at times I felt I was developing whiplash ….the characters were intriguing and their roles in the plot were often unpredictable …just when I thought I knew who I was rooting for everything would change and I had to reevaluate my allegiances….

The antagonists relationship most definitely reflected the nature of the book with unspoken secrets and hidden truths which at times elicited feelings of frustration from me….if only they were more up front and honest…but then again the resulting story would have been considerably shorter…. and wow there were plenty of steamy moments to make up for their failure to articulate ….

In summary this was a suitably satisfying series finale; I was completely caught up in the outcome of the story and invested in the lives of the participants and when the last page was turned and all was revealed ……checkmate

Arrogant.
Womanizer.
Sexy as hell. 

These are all words that have been used to describe my best friend. They might be true, but to me, he’s just Cole Calloway. The one person who has always been there. Now it’s my turn to reciprocate. Coming off an injury, Cole needs me. I won’t let him down.

It’s easy to fall back into old habits with friends, but with Cole something is different. He’s different with me. The touches are gentler. His eyes linger on me.  There’s something there that wasn’t before. My heart flutters just a little too much every time I look at him. What’s the worst that could happen if I stopped overthinking and just let go?

This was a quick fast paced read that’s filled with sexual tension between two friends, when it explodes and trust me it does it’s extremely hot and steamy making this one sexy read.

The main characters Cole and Mackenzie are best friends they’ve known each since they were kids, I thought the way their relationship was portrayed was very good you could really feel the connection between them both everything felt genuine and real, from the banter that flowed between them to their feelings and thoughts regarding how their relationship was changing.

Like I’ve already said this is a fast paced read and in my opinion that’s it’s only downfall, it was just a bit too fast paced bringing the timing of certain aspects into question.

Overall Hard Ball is a really good sports themed friends to lovers story with a twist in it that even I didn’t see coming. It was hot and sexy and when I say that what I really mean is it was SUPER HOT and SEXY!! I’d have liked a bit more drama but all in all a decent read.
