Review for Let Me Love You

This was my first “older” heroine and “younger” hero romance and BOY OH BOY does it set the bar high for my next one! Jessica Jayne gives you a glimpse into a relationship that exceeds my expectations for what love can look like, no matter your age. Ren and Stacey were wonderful, and their backstories were realistic and thought out, all through the end. Jessica Jayne’s narrative was a delight to read and I look forward to her next adventure through romance!

Set The City On Fire by Sophia Peony (Review)

38795697.jpgPlease don’t die. Please don’t die. Please don’t die. 
Leo heard the frantic whisper over and over in his head. She begged him to stay alive, and he couldn’t very well disappoint her by dying.

Leonardo Costa
Someone tried to kill Leo, heir to the Costa family. Call it luck, call it a miracle, or simply say it wasn’t his time, but Leo survived thanks to Freya. Those who tried to kill him were dealt with, swiftly and painfully, but there was someone else controlling the rats, someone close to the family.
Leo had an enemy to eliminate, but when fate throws Freya back in his path, he knew he wasn’t letting go. She saved his life, and it was his duty to protect her.

Freya Santos
Her only alibi was Leo. She couldn’t remember what happened, but she knew there was no way she would have anything to do with the missing man. Right?
She had no choice but to depend on Leo and play the role of a happy fiancé, even if it’s temporary-very temporary. But when bullets start flying, Freya knew there was more to Leo and his family than meets the eye. Would she survive their fake engagement?

 Review for Set the City on Fire…

Once again Sophia Peony captivates me with her wonderful creations! Her new story ‘Set the City on Fire’ is a story so hot that I had to take a moment (or three) to compose myself. Her characters, Leo and Freya have chemistry that goes beyond the norm. He’s a mobster, domineering and controlling. She is spends most of her time either working or staying at home, completely innocent to the darker world around her. But saving Leo from impending death, is her door into this new world. I liked the slow burn of the story, the character shaping, and (of course) the happy ending. Another great read from Sophia Peony, for the win!

About the author…

81itGIgU5BL._SY200_.pngI love to write!
I’ve been reading fiction for years and finally decided that the images and scenes floating around in my head needed to make it to paper.

I’m a huge fan of romance, highly optimistic, and wildly faithful to the HEA (happily ever after). I’m inspired by most anything around me. And my biggest obstacle is not having enough time to get it all down on paper (or my computer, as the case may be).

My goal is create a fantasy you will enjoy with characters you could love.

I live in Texas with my attentive, loving, super-model husband, and my perfectly behaved, brilliant children. My produce never wilts, there are no weeds in my flowerbeds, and chocolate is my favorite food group.
And then I wake up.

Love In The Spotlight by Sophia Peony (Review)

51r8GSAF0lL.jpg Connor Knightly

Hollywood’s biggest star, and a product of Hollywood legends. 

Connor needed the right actress for his new movie. He didn’t want the hottest or most popular actress, he wanted the perfect one and Judith was the perfect woman for the role. This movie was his baby and Judith was his star. He just needs to remember to keep his hands off of her. He didn’t want another relationship in the spotlight.

Judith Roux

The product of two people who needed to divorce. 

Judith was ready to throw her towel in for her Hollywood dreams but not without a last hurrah. She took a chance and it paid off. She, Judith Roux, a relatively unknown actress, daughter of a porn film maker, and stepping stool for A-list celebrities was going to star in a movie with The Connor Knightly. She wasn’t just going to star in the movie with him; she was going to be the star.

Review for ‘Love In The Spotlight’

This novella was such a gem to read! Living in Los Angeles, I love when stories come into my neighborhood and I can fall in love with the city all over again. The Hollywood fame and fortune isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but Peony tends to her characters with such care and detail that she makes the stars look attainable. Her heroine, Judith, is strong-will and goes after exactly what she wants. The yin to her yang is Connor Knightly, the most handsome man in Hollywood. I loved their chemistry and the determination they both share to find their HEA. It was a wonderful, quick read. I look forward to hearing more about Sophia Peony in the future!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Erotic Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Krista Matthews thought nothing could be harder than losing her husband and Master to suicide until the man he’d entrusted her care to left her also.  By the time Dr. Dax Hayes returned from an overseas, volunteer medical tour, she thought she was over his deflection and ready to re-immerse herself in the BDSM world she needed and missed so much without his help.  One scene proved how wrong she was and after Master Dax’s timely rescue, she agrees to let him tutor her back into the lifestyle.  She hadn’t counted on her growing feelings for the strict Dom or his refusal to take her over completely, like she craved.

Dr. Dax Hayes fell for Krista Matthews the minute he looked into her blue eyes and saw the sated, content look she shared with her husband, Dr. Kurt Matthews.  He managed to keep his feelings and lust under control until his friend and colleague asked him to join him in gifting Krista with a menage for her birthday.  Knowing it was a mistake, but unable to resist, Dax succumbs to the temptation of this one-time scene, never realizing where it would lead.  A year later, after sealing his fate with a questionable act, he flees on a guilt trip only to return and discover nothing had changed-he still wanted Krista Matthews with an ache that wouldn’t be assuaged by anyone else. 

Unable to resist stepping in when she gets herself in trouble, Dax again gives in to temptation and aids the one woman he can never have back into the lifestyle her submissive nature needed.  When a vindictive woman tells Krista the truth, will her feelings be strong enough to forgive him, or did he gamble everything only to lose it all in the end?

DISCLAIMER: This book is intended for adults only. It contains elements of power exchange, BDSM, including explicit sexual scenes and anal play. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

Voices nearing the surgery room filtered through the swinging doors and one deep baritone sent a shiver of awareness dancing under Krista’s suddenly tight skin.  She turned just as Dax pushed through them and her first thought was nothing had changed.  He still towered over her, his coal black hair still curled around his ears and nape and those penetrating green eyes set in a tanned, chiseled face could still draw a quick, heated response from her.  She wasn’t sure she could lay claim to being female if her heart rate didn’t pick up speed or she didn’t go slightly damp when Dr. Dax Hayes walked into a room.

He left without a word for a year and a half.  The reminder helped her to believe that instant response meant nothing nor changed a thing.  Inhaling until she couldn’t hold any more air in her lungs, she nodded and managed a small smile of welcome.

“Dr. Hayes.  It’s good to have you back again.”

Crap.  Krista had been about to congratulate herself on managing a cool, but friendly greeting when he fisted those large hands on his lean hips and cocked his head.  His bland, generic reply belied his intense regard that turned the butterflies of unwanted pleasure in her stomach to jitters of long neglected need.

“It’s nice to be back.  How have you been, Krista?”

So proper and reserved from a man whose cock she’d had in her mouth.  “Good.  You?” she returned just as detached, her heart aching for the easy friendship they shared before both he and Kurt deserted her.  She felt as lost and alone at this moment of stiff formality as she had at her husband’s funeral.

He stiffened and gazed at her for another silent moment, as if he too found this initial meeting disappointing.  “Better, now that I’m stateside again.  Let’s just say my tour reinforced how lucky we are as opposed to some parts of the world.”  Dax stepped forward, his eyes softening as he said, “Krista, I…”

The resident and nurse entered, and he clamped his mouth shut, yanking his eyes off her with an abruptness that allowed Krista to release her pent-up breath.

Duets & Dominance by Anya Summers

Elizabeth “Lizzie” von Klepper has a problem of epic proportions—she’s the oldest virgin in the world. Invited to perform on Pleasure Island with her best friend Solomon, she devises a plan to seduce him, and rid herself of that infernal status. After all, they shared a mind-blowing kiss a year ago and that has to count for something, right?

Solomon Ventura adores Lizzie. She’s been his best friend since their humble beginnings at Julliard, but deep down he’s yearned for her. For more. And ever since he tasted her, a stolen kiss he hasn’t been able to forget, he cannot seem to stop his mind from conjuring up myriad fantasies with Lizzie in the starring role. But he’s not the man for her. She’s light where he is dark, and his brand of love would shatter the only woman he’s ever cared about.

Will the best friends move their relationship out of the friendzone? Or will a week spent on pleasure island destroy them both?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

Seven years of her life, down the toilet. Seven years of waiting for Edward to marry her. Seven years of patiently waiting for him to make an honest woman out of her. God, how he and the model he’d been banging must have laughed over her stupidity.

It was absurd, really, how gullible she’d been in their relationship. Most men didn’t want to wait to have a physical relationship, especially not with their intended bride.

Pretty stupid of her, in retrospect.

Lizzie rolled her eyes at herself and her predicament. Deep down, she had known that indisputable fact but she’d ignored the truth because she hadn’t loved Edward. Hell, she hadn’t been certain she even liked him. And he had obviously never cared for her, but had been as stuck as she in a prison of expectation.

She’d toed the line her parents had expected her to walk without overstepping the boundaries they erected. Because of that, she had lived a relatively sheltered life in pursuit of her career as a concert flutist. Even during her time at Julliard, she had been buttoned up with responsibilities and the terrible desire to please her parents, hoping that if she did as they asked of her, they would finally show a measure of warmth towards her.

So when her parents had introduced her to Edward Cunningham III, one of their friend’s sons, it had been the most natural extension in the world to accept his proposal.

Sheltered, secluded, and undeniably obtuse when it came to matters of the heart, Lizzie had caved to their unspoken demands. It was funny now, for when she looked back at how Edward had proposed, it had obviously been another business merger and nothing more.

American King, the stunning conclusion to The New Camelot Trilogy by Sierra Simone is LIVE!!

American-King-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg

They say that every tragic hero has a fatal flaw, a secret sin, a tiny stitch sewn into his future since birth.  And here I am.  My sins are no longer secret. My flaws have never been more fatal.  And I’ve never been closer to tragedy than I am now.

I am a man who loves, a man whose love demands much in return.  I am a king, a king who was foolish enough to build a kingdom on the bones of the past. I am a husband and a lover and a soldier and a father and a president.

And I will survive this.

Long live the king.

Captured Memories by Katherine McIntyre (Review)

Captured Memories

by Katherine McIntyre

(Cupid’s Café #3)

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35437000-captured-memories

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time.

Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place.

When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.

Excerpt:

The date started as bland and was speeding right along to abysmal.

Liv sucked on her straw, taking in an extra hefty helping of her black-and-white milkshake, as if the creamy goodness could block out the absolute drivel coming out of this guy’s mouth. He hadn’t seemed like this much of a twat online, but hey, dating profiles lie. The overhead lights of the Denny’s blared down on her, and the rattle and chill of air conditioning blasting through this place made her skin prickle.

“So you take photographs, right?” Kyle asked, his smarmy grin the sort kind she itched to punch off his face, and the Drakkar Noir he’d slathered on making her stomach churn. “What’s your real job?”

Liv swigged so much milkshake it went straight to her head, but even brain freeze melted in the fury his question inspired. So far he checked off every item on her ‘Shit that Makes Liv Morozov Rage’ list. Acting like her career wasn’t a legitimate profession tended to top that, along with the territorial way he leaned forward, his hand inching across the laminate table as the minutes wore on.

“Professional Emasculator. I’ve been told that’s why I’ve got such a problem keeping a man,” she drawled, batting her eyelashes innocently while the venom poured from her mouth. This had been a bad idea from the start, spurred on by the promise she made to Tessa to give the dating pool a fair try again. Common sense-wise, making connections she might be able to use for her quite-real job as a photographer didn’t hurt, and she figured she could slice through any assholes who came her way.

Looked like right off the bat they lined up for the slaughter.

Strong women. Strong words.

Katherine McIntyre is a feisty Irish chick with a big attitude despite her short stature. She writes stories featuring snarky women, ragtag crews, and men with bad attitudes—high chance for a passionate speech thrown into the mix. As an eternal geek and tomboy who’s always stepped to her own beat, she’s made it her mission to write stories that represent the broad spectrum of people out there, from different cultures and races to all varieties of men and women. Easily distracted by cats and sugar.

Review of ‘Captured Memories’

Katherine McIntyre as brought to her series an immense and detailed storyline, but raw and emotional. I was so impressed by the way she handled a broken hero and his journey through the waters of love once more. I absolutely love the idea of a rekindled romance, and the one between Liv and Zane brings the heat and sets up the story to be both bold and witty. Their tension is palpable, and their past-demons are strong. But together, they make one hell of a power couple. A very good read, that I was so happy came across my Kindle!
