Liar Liar (Liar Liar #1) by L.A. Cotton

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Liar Liar #1.
Subject: Lies will destroy them all.
Synopsis
For eighteen-year-old Becca Torrence, the chance to finish high school in a new town, where no one knows her or the secrets of that night, should be a dream come true. But when the first day of school rolls around, something is wrong.

Instead of being greeted with warm smiles and reassuring hellos, Becca finds herself on the receiving end of icy stares and cruel whispers. Putting it down to her status as an outsider, she holds her head high, because they can’t know.

They can’t.

Can they?

Determined to make her new life in Credence work, Becca is willing to do whatever it takes to fit in. Even if it means losing herself in the process.


A white lie can save you … Too many lies will break you.














This was a hard book to read, because the subject the author chose to write about is something real, and unfortunately, an awful thing that happens nowadays at schools, bullying.

The main character, Becca, has a secret that we don't know yet, but it has changed her in suck a deeper level that she needs to reinvent herself and it has cost her to loose everything she had. 
She is having a hard time getting her life back because for some unknown reason the queen bee at her new school is after her and her life is slowly becoming a new kind of hell.


Becca is stronger than what people think but all the lies she has put in place are starting to close in on her and she is not sure she can keep going this way.

Her salvation comes in the name of Evan, a brooding and beautiful guy who she can't seem to stop thinking about. But he has secrets of his own and when the lies come to light there might be nothing left.

Becca feels like life is finally getting better, new friends and the possibility of love seemed impossible until now, but she is starting to believe in it again.

We know how lies tend to ruin everything, they were all scared of the truth but they will learn that hiding it can have the ability to destroy them all.

I'm off to the next book!

Excerpt 
Before she could react, B sat up and grabbed her with his freshly set hand, drawing her face towards his.  He felt his heart leap as their lips touched ever so gently at first.  He’d dreamed of kissing her since the first time he’d laid eyes on her, and could only hope that the feelings she’d admitted to were true.  Her lips moved softly upon his, her tongue darting out to lick along the line of his lips.  B opened his mouth and let her in, their tongues sliding together sensually as his body came to life.  It was a feeling he thought he’d never fully experience, the blood pounding in his veins, his heart jumping in his chest.  Mara’s arms came up to circle him, one around his back, the other sliding up his neck, her nails raking along his scalp near the nape of his neck.  The tiny shivers from her sharp little nails were more erotic than any sexual experience he’d ever had.  B’s heart felt like it was soaring free.  Maybe there really could be a happy ending for him.

Hot Shot (Last Shot #2) by Kelly Jamieson

My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes. 
Series: Yes, Last Shot #2.
Subject: A modern time Fairy tale.
Synopsis
A former Navy SEAL and current bad boy bar owner learns to trust a free spirit in this steamy novel of unexpected romance from the bestselling author of Body Shot and the Heller Brothers series.

Marco Solis knows that if he gets too close to people they disappear. His parents were deported back to Mexico when he was fourteen, his fiancée married someone else while he was in the military, and now his business partner’s spending more time with his girl than with Marco. For better or worse, that’s how Marco meets Carrie Garner. She’s legitimately model-hot. She’s also a nut—a wild, artsy, unapproachable nut. So why is Marco so interested in cracking her shell?

Although Carrie Garner is a natural in front of the camera, her dream is to make it as a photographer. Soon she’ll be heading to Spain for design school, and she’ll miss her best friend, Hayden, like crazy. She’ll even miss Hayden’s boyfriend, Beck—but she won’t miss Beck’s partner, Marco. Bossy, brooding, and annoyingly sexy, Marco really pushes her buttons, though he obviously wouldn’t mind pushing her buttons in an up-against-the-wall, hard-and-fast kind of way. The craziest part is, if Carrie lets him do that, well . . . she may never want to leave.


Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.



I love Kelly's books and the Last shot series is by far one of my favourites! These amazing characters take us on a crazy new ride, now featuring Marco and Carrie's story.

They hated each other at first sight, or that was what they thought. They were misguided, both of them had huge self-esteem problems generated by bad things happening in their lives, and they let that cloud their image of themselves and each other.

Together they realize that their lives are not so bad after all and they have a lot to offer. 

Carrie, beautiful model, fun and outgoing was actually a sweet and insecure woman on the inside; but Marco freed something in her and now she felt she could do and be anything. The problem was, she just wanted one thing more than anything now, and she was sure it was impossible.

Marco has been a favourite of mine since book 1, with his sexy Spanish and cute pick up lines; but he was so much more. He had a troublesome past that left some scars and life always showed him that people leave and he was okay with it, it was the way things worked, that's why he chose not to get attached. Until now, she changed everything and for the first time he didn't want to be left behind.

It was fun and amazing to watch these two dance around each other totally clueless; it shows us how sometimes out of fear we don't say things and accept situations for what we think they are and by doing that we loose great opportunities. 

I always though that when you want something you have to go for it with everything you got, and if even then it's still not working then it wasn't meant to be, but you will have no regrets after wards. 

A true fairy tale of modern times, I love every second of this book!

Vernal (The Royal Protector Academy #1) by Randi Cooley Wilson

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes. 
Series: Yes, The Royal Protector Academy #1.
Subject: Changing your destiny.
Synopsis
Serena has a bright future etched in stone. 
Tristan has a dark past that haunts him. 
Together, they have a love that can never be.

Sheltered, and unable to escape her bloodline, Serena St. Michael has spent the last two years training at the Royal Protector Academy. Struggling with a dark past, Tristan Gallagher’s current assignment is to protect a lifetime of secrets. One chance encounter will change everything. Serena must decide if she will follow her heart, forsaking all she’s ever known and risking a future worse than non-existence. Tristan will break every rule to save Serena, even if he can’t keep her. In their world of darkness, one love will ignite an ancient war. When pasts collide with the present, and secrets are revealed, will love be enough? Or will one lie destroy it all?

When you’ve hidden behind a mask for so long, would you reveal yourself for love? Vernal, the first novel in The Royal Protector Academy series is a dangerously exciting and darkly romantic tale that will take your breath away.



Well I read this book without realising that it came after the revelation series, and it was a bit of a spoiler I must admit since I haven't finished the series yet. But I tried to keep the stories separated in my mind and kind of work ( I'm hoping).

That being said it was really fun to read about this new generation of gargoyles, their friends and enemies. They reminded me so much about their predecessors that I couldn't hold it together and wanted them to get over themselves and love each other, like yesterday. 
But that's not how stories work so we bear with them fighting each other at every turn and at the same time falling so hard that there might not be a way back for either.

The main characters were amazing! Serena was strong, independent and smart; a bit too immature at first for my taste but she is young so we will forgive her for that.

Tristan was so ... Gage, yeah I think that's the best way to describe him, so similar but at the same time not that tainted by darkness. He might be going through a rough moment now but he doesn't know true darkness like his progenitor. He recognised the feeling from the start, he couldn't accept it but he knew; and that showed us he had a big and beautiful beating heart within.

And the cliffhanger we knew was coming, I can't wait to read the next part of this amazing an thrilling story!




                                           

The Book of Summer by Michelle Gable

My Rating: 4 Stars
Sex Scenes: No. 
Series: No.
Subject: Diferent lives of people who have a house in common.
Synopsis
Physician Bess Codman has returned to her family's Nantucket compound, Cliff House, for the first time in four years. Her great-grandparents built Cliff House almost a century before, but due to erosion, the once-grand home will soon fall into the sea. Though she' s purposefully avoided the island, Bess must now pack up the house and deal with her mother, a notorious town rabble-rouser, who refuses to leave.


The Book of Summer unravels the power and secrets of Cliff House as told through the voices of Ruby Packard, a bright-eyed and idealistic newlywed on the eve of WWII, the home's definitive guestbook, and Bess herself. Bess's grandmother always said it was a house of women, and by the very last day of the very last summer at Cliff House, Bess will understand the truth of her grandmother's words in ways she never contemplated. 



This one was a hard book to read. 
Like other work from the author I've had the pleasure of reading, it's about real people and real life problems. It's never easy reading about loss of lives, ending of friendships or extremely hard decisions that have to be made.

The author takes us on a long ride through all the lives that have passes though this Summer house during a time when life wasn't easy. The country was at war, lives were lost and people got lost too within the craziness of battle. 

Nowadays it might seem difficult to understand, with all the technology we manage, but back then people lost touch for years and years and there was nothing they could do. Sometimes all they had were the memories they made, and this house was full of them. 

It was really interesting the way in which the author connected the past lives with the lives of the present occupants of the house, and how things tend to repeat, lies and secrets stay hidden forever, and in most cases they end up mixed up with the memories of these peoples.

When talking about love the author has a melancholy about it, the main characters are trapped in lives where they choose to ignore the problems to find something close to happiness and some of them are too scared to take the leap and find out what could it be if they just chose love. A lot like real life itself.

A truly amazing read.

Sex in the Sticks (Love Hurts #1) by Sawyer Bennett

My Rating:  5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Love Hurts #1.
Subject: Leaving the city to find your own piece of heaven.
Synopsis
Wake up and feel the wood! In the first of a series of irresistible standalone romances from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, a city girl rediscovers love and lust in the Alaskan wilderness.

Valentine French may be the sassiest dating columnist in New York City, but the abundance of metrosexuals in her adopted metropolis is seriously cramping her style. Where are the beefy all-American boys? Hoping to find some inspiration, Val heads to Alaska, where the men outnumber the women fifteen to one and wrestle grizzly bears for sport. Or so she can only imagine. Suddenly the most eligible bachelorette in a town full of horny lumberjacks, Val is writing her best columns ever. But if she doesn’t get her nose out of her laptop, she just might miss out on Mr. Right.

Logan Burke is the sheriff of the little podunk town that Val finds so charmingly backward. He’s not that different from the guys she’s using for her little experiment; it’s just that one date would never be enough for Logan. As he listens to Val complain about love over beers in the local tavern, he realizes that she can’t see the forest for the trees. Because if she would ever give up her Prada bags and fourteen-dollar martinis, Logan would give her the only luxury that matters: his heart.

















I missed Sawyer Bennett's books, I was so excited when I got this one for review, I couldn't wait to get started!

Valentine is everything we wish we could be, super confident, rich, fun and beautiful; but she is really lonely, even though she hasn't figured it out yet. She is bored of NYC, so she decides a trip might be exactly what she needs.

The story was hilarious, she gets to Alaska and the adventures begin. This city girl is up for a bunch of surprises and mishaps before she can finally find what she was didn't even know she needed, but was exactly what she was looking for.

Logan was just WOW, a knight in shinning Armour in the middle of Alaska. He was there for her from the beginning and even though he didn't want to accept he liked her he couldn't stay away.

A match made in heaven. Once they come together, there's nothing any of them can do to stop the heat from consuming them. 

But Val still holds many secrets and they might be their ending. She needs to shed her last walls and finally let someone in  if she wants to find true happiness.

Just perfection! Like always a pleasure reading Sawyer's books.

Their Spoiled Brat (A MFM Daddy Romance) by J.L. Beck


My Rating:  4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: No.
Subject: Short menage story.
Synopsis
She’s going to call us Daddy, even if she doesn’t want too. 

My twin brother and I love women, and we love sharing them even more. So the moment we lay eyes on the innocent little Stephanie we know we have to have her. You see we have money, and a kink that needs to be met and Steph while she looks like she could be the perfect brat for us. 

They both want me. Two alpha’s set on making my dreams come true. I’ve never done the things they want me to do but with both of them taking control of me I know I have nothing to worry about. 

Still I’ve got Daddy issues, issues that money can solve and the Wright brothers know just how to tempt me not only out of my clothes and into their bed but into a deal I can’t refuse. 

The only problem is will I be able to walk away after having tasted both of them? I mean, I can’t be their spoiled little brat forever, can I?


-This is a STEAMY M/F/M romance that ends in a HEA. This is SMUT all the way through. Pour yourself a drink, and shuck the panties to the floor because it's time to get dirty with the Wright brothers.-
















This is the J.L. Beck's first menage book I've read and I loved it!

It is a fun and fast read, full of hot sex scenes and crazy sexual moments between the characters. 

The plot is super fast paced: meet + sex= insta-love; but if you are looking for a steamy story with two extremely irresistible guys and a strong but inexperienced woman this is the story for you.

Since the moment she meets the twins there's no going back, she feels the pull and even though she is a bit scared she can't refuse their invitation.

I felt like there was a lot more to say, and the story was a bit cut short for my taste, but it was still enjoyable.


               


The Handy Men by Jamie K. Schmidt

My Rating:  4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: No.
Subject: You can have all you want.
Synopsis
Jack and Dean love each other, but they’re missing the woman to complete their triangle. When newly divorced Paige Richards buys a Bed and Breakfast on Hamlet Island and employs them to help her fix the inn up, Jack and Dean are sure they’ve found the one they’ve been looking for. Despite the playful, sexy clues they drop, luscious Paige is reticent about getting involved, even when they set the stage so she can stumble on them in action. They can tell by her responses she wants to join them, but rumors travel fast on the small island, and tales of a threesome could get back to the conservative, family vacation crowd who won’t patronize those with an alternative lifestyle. And the last thing they want for Paige is the B&B’s rooms…and her bank account…to remain empty. But Jack and Dean will stop at nothing to prove to Paige that she can have it all…with them.

My Review

Book given in exchange of an honest review.

Okay, as you all well know, I love menages! And if we are all being honest to ourselves who wouldn’t be thrilled to have all that attention?!

Jack, dean and Paige’s story was just was I needed, the fact that the guys where in a M/M relationship just made things hotter, I did enjoy their solo scenes and little moments.


I find it hard to explain what I love about this type of books, their connection was just perfect and the sex scenes where Hotter that hell. 
The characters where developed just enough for us to get to know them and enjoy their little quirks.

Paige got stronger as the story kept developing, mostly because she let go of her inhibitions, but she also found herself again after her ex's betrayal and became the woman she was always supposed to be. She was done taking crap from people.

Letter from the author:

Dear Readers,

Years ago a restless, troubled man sprang to life in my head, and he wouldn't leave me alone. He had a younger brother that he loved more than anything in the world, so I sat down and tried to write their story. And it wasn't very good. But these brothers--Jude and Ryan--never left me. A decade later, I realized that, like Frankenstein's monster, they were waiting for me to create their loves. And a few months later, Tell Me How This Ends was born. 
The book is the first in the Tell Me trilogy, which is heartfelt, fun, and sometimes emotional. It was my pleasure to follow Jude, Ryan, and their friends through three books. I'm not going to lie; there were tears when I wrote the final scene.
I am so honored that Tell Me How This Ends has been nominated for a RITA award, but I'm even more humbled by the readers who have taken the time to tell me they love the book. I hope you love it, too.



My Review

Book given in exchange of an honest review by the author.

I have no idea where to start, this book was just so much! 
I had a blast reading it and at the same time I suffered from a deep depression for a while, trying to figure out how could things get better without all of the characters dying from sadness.

The situation in which these three people find themselves is unique and disastrous at the same time. It doesn't seem to be a way to fix this in which all of them can be happy, it's just a disaster waiting to happen. 
And still, I couldn't put it down, the whole story was hypnotic, I kept expecting things to go very wrong, but the characters were so truthful and honest, that they never crossed that line and I couldn't have been happier.

I loved the three of them! The part I found amazing was that the author accomplished something beautiful, she created these people who even though they were in the worst situation possible, they still made all of the best decisions, so we don't feel the need to judge them on them. I've read a lot of books where the characters are faced with this love triangles and in one point or the other, one of them makes a wrong decision or crosses a line that can't be uncrossed and we hate them a bit for it. 
This was never the case in this story, I could feel their pain, Ryan who ignored his brother's feelings and looked the other way, Jude who would have given anything for his brother, even if it meant giving up his own happiness; and Lizzie who couldn't forget him, even though she tried, and made all of the right choices he has a piece of her heart and she couldn't shake him

I felt so proud of Ryan, he was the strongest of them all, even though he was the one who all of them felt the need to protect, in the end he took the decision making in his hands and became the better man, because he loved them so much and he had the strength needed to sacrifice himself.

Jude was a peculiar kind of guy, he seemed detached from life, like nothing could ever reach him. Until he saw Elizabeth, she was a mess, far away from what he usually liked, but she was the perfect imperfection for him. 
Their relationship was beautiful for me, because they brought the best out of each other, but it was ugly. No heart and roses for these two, they had passion and they fought teeth and nail to avoid opening up to each other, but there was this inevitability about them. 

Jude's vulnerability almost killed me, once he opened up, I was done for, he is the kind of bad boy you always wanted but couldn't get close, and now he is all yours!

Taken by J.C. Valentine

My Rating:  4 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: No.
Subject: Chance encounters.
Synopsis
Love is blind…
Especially when you’ve been abducted.

Caught in the dredges of life, Elise had come to the grudging conclusion that mediocrity was all she’d ever have. 
Until a routine shopping trip turns into a deadly affair. 

Taken. Two men, one a brute and the other an enigma. A cabin in the woods. One dangerous agenda. 

Blindfolded and held captive, Elise’s mundane existence just got a whole lot more interesting. Thrust into the unknown, held prisoner by a man with rough hands and a gentle voice, she’s faced with her own demise while struggling against a growing desire for the unacceptable—her captor. 


Will Elise make it out with her life—and heart—intact? 

My Review


Book given in exchange of an honest review.

Shockingly, this is my first book by this author, I always loved the blurbs and covers but never got around to reading one until now, and I can say that I totally regret it!

I really enjoyed this book, the author’s writing captured me alongside the main character Elise and I felt every terrifying feeling she was experiencing. I also enjoyed the sexual tension between Elise and Marcus; I can understand how a situation like this would heighten your senses and make you feel everything with much more intensity.   

She felt a connection right away and he kept giving her mixed signals; how could such a bad person seem so good? And why did she feel more than attraction towards him? 

I didn’t like Elise that much to be honest, there were moments she had no self-esteem whatsoever and at the end she kind of ruined things a bit. It’s okay to miss someone or to feel lonely but what she was doing was something different. 

A thrilling story with some exhilarating moments and also some steamy sex scenes that will test your limits.

EXCERPT 

What was that she’d said about not having encountered a penis in ages? Well, Elise was getting an up close and personal introduction with Manhandler’s member, and it was rock hard and ready to please, judging by the way it was prodding persistently between her legs as if demanding entry. 
And Elise was one sick pup, because, after managing to fall asleep then waking up to the feel of it wedged between her thighs, coupled with the hardness and warmth of her captor firmly wrapped around her, she had become wetter than the Niagara Falls. 
This was what happened when you went without proper male attention for too long. Clearly, her body was looking for love in all the wrong places. Holy crap! She needed to get her head screwed on straight. Nothing about her sudden and growing desire was okay. Not a damn thing. 
She wasn’t sure how long she laid there, feeling the gentle throb of his cock against her buttocks, his soft breath tickling her ear, sweating from the immense heat of his body against hers—he was like an inferno!—and keeping track of the thump of his heart pounding against her back. Thanks to her lack of sight, Elise only knew sensations, and they were more than enough to send her thoughts spiraling down a rabbit hole she had no business exploring. 
So when the door slammed open and Driver burst in, Elise was both terrified and relieved. 
“Rise and shine!” Driver shouted at the same time Manhandler yanked Elise beneath him, covering her body with his, and roared, “What the fuck! I could have shot you, you motherfucker!” 
“You’re not that trigger happy,” Driver said confidently. 
Elise heard the distinct metallic click of what she assumed to be the hammer being reset—on a gun!—beside her ear. 
“You’re damn lucky for that,” Manhandler snarled. “You dumb fuck.” 
“Got your heart pumping. You’ve been needing to get more cardio in anyway. Get rid of those love handles.” 
Manhandler growled his irritation. “Get out before I put a bullet in your ass.” 
“Need a few minutes alone with the missus?” 
It was then Elise became highly aware of exactly where Manhandler was positioned. Or more specifically, how. And judging by how Manhandler stiffened, his whole body going rock steady, she knew he’d realized it too. 
“It’s not what it looks like.” 
“Hey, I’m not saying anything. You wanna shit where you eat? Fine by me. Just don’t let it go to your head. Well, the one that counts anyway. We might have to shoot her later.” With that little gem of advice, Driver closed the door, whistling a cheery little tune as he went. 
Elise, though highly disturbed, was also keenly aware of the man on top of her. His body was everywhere, so much wider and heavier than her own…and it felt amazing. Even more amazing was the hard ridge of his cock pressed right up tight against her cleft, which wouldn’t have been an issue at all had she not inadvertently opened her legs when he’d rolled on top of her, creating the perfect cradle for his hips to rest in. 
And without her sight, all she could do was lie there and focus on what was going on below the waist. 
“Well, this is an interesting turn of events,” Manhandler said with a casual flair that Elise found admirable, considering she was beginning to experience heart palpitations. 
“Why are you on top of me?” she demanded to know, her tone fraught with irritation. 
“Don’t get so defensive, buttercup. I’m not the one who spread his legs like butter.” 
She gasped, affronted. “You’re the one who climbed on top of me!” 
“To protect you!” 
“From your egotistical asshat friend!” 
“I was half asleep. I didn’t know who the hell it was,” he hissed back. Then, with a grunt, he shoved away from her. The bedsprings squawked loudly as he sprang to his feet. “You act as if I stripped you down to your panties and tried to get inside you.” 
God, just those words were enough to make Elise shiver. And not in a bad way. Not at all. 
Apparently, her silence was enough to give him pause. “Wait…is that what you’re pissed about?” 
“What?” she asked through clenched teeth. She already knew where this was going, because she was thinking it too. 
“That’s it, isn’t it?” There was a smugness to his tone that she didn’t appreciate one bit. He came closer again, and she could feel him looming over her. “You liked me on top of you.” 
“No, I didn’t.” Rolling away from the sound of his voice, Elise’s feet found the floor and she popped up, wanting desperately to run away but not knowing where to go without removing the blindfold, which could very well be a death sentence. 
Manhandler came up behind her, his smug attitude full-watt. “Yeah, you did. You wanted the D. Just admit it.” She felt his heat a second before she felt his lips beside her ear. In a low, gruff voice laced with desire, he said, “If you wanted it, all you had to do was ask, buttercup.”
