Decision made.

She’s going home with this man, and she’s not going to regret it when she leaves him in the morning.

Or at least that’s what she thinks.

Captain by Lauren Rowe

From, Lauren Rowe, the USA Today and International bestselling author ofCaptain Ebook Cover The Club Series and Ball Peen Hammer comes a sexy standalone romance: Captain.

It wasn’t the way this kind of story was supposed to go . . .
Insta-love isn’t supposed to turn into insta-hate.

But that’s exactly what happened when the hot-as-hell dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag-player-douche looking for nothing but a little side action. Jerk.

And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a “sociopath”? Assh*le.

And now, three months later, through a mind-blowing series of events I couldn’t have predicted in a million years, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I’ve got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.

Okay, sure, I’ll put on a happy face this week and act like I’ve never even met the jerk before–did I mention his sister is marrying my boss?–but that doesn’t mean I’ll like it. And it certainly doesn’t mean I’ll stop secretly hating the cocky bastard’s guts.

Because I do.
I hate him.
I really do.

I just wish my brain would explain the situation to my body . . . because every time he flashes that panty-melting smile at me, it takes all my self-restraint not to jump the bastard’s hot-as-f*ck bones.

She has been promised to Hail, who has just taken over Royal Industries along with his brothers and cousins.

Just one look at Lily and Hail is determined to own her in every way. He doesn’t want her obedience just because she’s honoring a promise. He wants her obedience because she craves to please him.

Curveball by Mariah Dietz

Curveball Ebook CoverShakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and tragedy in humor.

My life proved his theory as fact.

At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in return.

Finding out he had a wife was tragic.
Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.
My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.

Nine years later, I’ve learned to see the humor in most situations.

My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind dates.
My son’s jokes.
The fire alarm going off each time I cook.

My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in both our lives.

But I wasn’t the only one who noticed him.
When I began having feelings for the man my best and only friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh round of heartbreak.

Love led me to this town.
Lies kept me there.

Would history repeat itself?
Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?

REVIEW: Lily by M.A. Horst

Super hot and over the top …

This series is turning out to be a super hot, over the top kinky love fest with a set of dirty talking Royal males who are enraptured by a wonderful array of sweet, innocent but blossoming Flowers……This time Lily is the target as she becomes the focus of a bidding war and is in a desperate situation until Hail Royal, enters stage right, with a serious case of instalust and determined to have her at any price……

There is a hero, a heroine, an evil villain, a heartless parent and also a hapless one thrown in for good measure and last but by no means least a dastardly plot…although this is a modern story the narrative and the language used is slightly antiquated and formal (apart from the sex talk and scenes…which are downright dirty) giving it a timeless quality in keeping with the classic fairy tale tradition….

A fast moving and oh so steamy romance which feels like it should end with a final bow and curtsy, a curtain call and the sound of rapturous applause…… I am so looking forward to reading the next in the series…..This novella was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads…

UltraViolence by Natalie Bennett

ULTRA+VIOLENCEreceived_1428523950544861
Noun
Random acts of violence with no justification.
Unprovoked, usually brutal.
Done simply for thrill and entertainment.

A sick infatuation.

A volatile obsession,

And a rising body count.

This isn’t your typical love story.

***Warning***
This is a dark erotic thriller. It is strange, ugly, and dirty. These characters have a f**ked moral compass. You may hate one or both of them. I remained true to their personalities from start to finish. This book contains scenes of graphic violence, harsh language, and dirty kinky sex scenes.

REVIEW: Poppy by M.A. Horst

A short and sweet super sexy treat

Who doesn’t like a great fairy story ..all that magic and fairy dust flying around and raunchy , hot sex……back up a minute you say that doesn’t sound like any children’s book I have read!!! And of course you would be right…this is a short , twisty, steamy read which is oh so very naughty and nice !!

Mr Hans Christian Anderson would probably turn in his grave , although he had a dark side to him too it would be fair to say…..this author writes such great characters and despite the brevity of the book she manages to conjure up a totally wonderful world with a gorgeous, dirty talking if somewhat arrogant hero and a beautiful if somewhat naive heroine..with a jealous wicked witch causing mischief and mayhem thrown in for good measure..

I confess I am not a fan of short stories…all that love at first sight or instalust, call it what you may… but this author is such a great story teller and having suspended all my beliefs I devoured this book in one sitting….this is a thoroughly entertaining, short and sweet super sexy treat..the first in a yet to be released series..This novella was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads…
