Matthew “Val” Taylor, the Road Captain in the club, was introduced to sex at an early age. Saved from the streets by the club’s Enforcer and President years ago, Val now lives for women and the open road. Until the night the only woman he’s ever loved is almost killed. Val determines to change his ways and be the man Zoann Donovan should have and the father their son deserves.

Zoann has loved Val for a long time. Violence and bitter betrayal forces her to ignore her feelings and distance herself not only from the sexy RC, but her beloved brother, too. Until she discovers the truth. Can Zoann ever be forgiven for all the pain she’s caused? Will Val overcome his own demons and have a future with her and their son? Who will survive in an MC filled with lust and revenge, love and hate?

Warning: This is a tale of rape, murders, deception, heartache, lies, and infidelity. The road to redemption is a tumultuous struggle where only the strong survive and justice is served…Outlaw-style.

ReviewAttractive woman reading a book

First of all, let me start with an apology to Kathryn Kelly. I somehow, through my computer challenged brain, lost this book in my Kindle documents. I finally found it and started it right away. I had been anticipating reading this book and was super pumped. I’m so very happy I found this book. Kathryn Kelly is one of three authors that I think does MC romance perfectly. It’s not MC lite and please those of you that like that genre, don’t get pissy with me. There’s nothing wrong with MC lite and I enjoy reading books in that genre but there’s MC lite and then there’s gritty MC. Ms. Kelly writes gritty MC and she’s a master of her craft.

Finally, we got the complete story of Matthew “Val” and Zoann. This couple has intrigued me so much while reading this series. Val was so darn endearing to me that I just wanted to squeeze his manwhoring self. Well, you get to find out why he’s such a man whore. He’s an addict. In more ways than one. His addictions are as follows: sex, pills and Zoann. The first two he can get easily, the last, not so much. Val was introduced to sex at twelve by his parents, who he claimed loved him in their own way. I wanted to ask what way made the intro to sex okay but whatever. I get why Val glutted himself on other women considering Zoann’s treatment of him but he was hurtful in his own way also.

Zoann was an enigma to me before this story. She was such an uber bitch. I mean an over the top bitch. Now, after reading this book, I get it. I bawled my damn eyes out reading her story. She considered herself weak when she was so very strong. To face what she did was as impressive as it was heart wrenching. She has been in love with Val since she was seventeen. After he gave her a ride home from the club, she’s brutally raped by her half brother’s father over a bet. She was forced to take the morning after pill, keep the assault quiet so it didn’t hurt the club and faced the supposed loss of her brother. Her bitchery was well earned and entitled.

The MC faces a lot of things in this book. A dirty cop, missing members, rocky marriages, betrayal, violence, pregancies, just to name a few. I really enjoyed this book but I’m gonna tell you what I didn’t like. Mort cheated on Bailey and news flash Mort, oral sex is sex. Mort needs to nut up and make Bailey feel she’s important before she walks away for good. Outlaw is still an asshole and still undeserving of his wife. If I was Megan. I’d drop him right now. Val wasn’t as sympathetic to Zoann’s rape as he should’ve been. He was also a shitty father. Now, I’ll end with the part that bothered me the most. Quit picking on Kendall! Who gives a shit that she’s not Megan! I know ahe doesn’t have a filter but she’s never malicious. She’s very socially awkward but that’s not all her fault. This series is written it seems, to get you to hate her and I won’t do it. I love Megan but she’s not the end all be all. So in closing, Team Kendall, bitches!

Review

Roleplay Gone Wrong (Naughty Wives 1)

Frank and Evie have been married for 13 years and they are still very much in love. However, their bedroom escapades have taken a nose dive and they’re coming up with fun and exciting ways to keep their sex life interesting. Well, one night of role-playing takes a very wrong turn and ends up turning a fantasy into reality. Frank is about to learn just how naughty his wife can really be.

description

What a quick, hot and spicy little read! I LOVED it! Frank is the pussy master! He knows what hes doing and loves to bury his face in it. Mmmm… my type of man! Evie seems to be the mastermind behind all the role-playing and comes up with all the new sexy adventures they take and I really like her style.

This story is written really well and although its short, its really good and the sexcapades is amazing. Definitely 2 finger 1 handed read quality. There is a little bit of story but it all flowed well and it made sense. I felt all the emotions that Frank was feeling. Anger, jealousy, fear, confusion, horny… Dont get me wrong… this is erotica so don’t expect some deep emotional connection with the characters. But do plan on a smokin’ hot Reed! see what I did there 🙂

“White chicks always turn into sluts for my cock!”

Well smack my ass and call me your whore! Sign this bitch up and Im moving on to the next story.

Naughty Wife’s Surprise (Naughty Wives 2)

This picks up right where Frank and Evie left off. Now they’re back at home and Frank is giving Evie a spanking for being such a whore for that cop.

spank me

We do get to see Officer Connoly again and he is an alpha if I’ve ever read one. He and his giant black cock make a cameo appearance.

big dick

Now the tables do get turned in this one. We get a little Fem Dom and then some Dom action, girl on girl and some humiliation. We also have some Felching but it doesn’t go into detail. thank goodness One of the things that bothered me was the humiliation. Im not really a fan of humiliation and the way Officer Connoly was talking to Frank was really off putting and distracting. Another thing that I found to be a little irritating was the constant reminder that Frank and Evie have been married for 13 years. But other than those couple of things… it was totally hot and I loved it.

Now Im off to read the next Naughty Wives!

Cuckolding the Cheat (Naughty Wives 3)

SOOOOO GOOD!!! I loved it! HOT! HOT! HOT!

hot

In this one we get to meet Cherry’s husband, Steve. Cherry loves to be humiliated and the ultimate humiliation is watching her husband fuck someone else.

There was a laugh out loud moment that I think is worth mentioning. Steves ass is in full view and Frank is grossed out.

“It’s like that low-angle lens in porn where it’s all hairy ass and balls and you can barely see the woman.”

Then there was one part where I thought it was going to go straight horror film on me with a “Fatal Attraction” or more accurately “What Lies Beneath” moment.

killer bunny

Overall, I am lovin’ this series. For people who have a hard time with reading about cheating, you may want to approach with caution. However, if youre ok with swingers and voyeurism, then you should be just fine with this.

To sum it up…. this is how I feel about Naughty Wives
my body is ready

About HART ATTACK

Outside of Titan Group, there are few people that Roman Hart would die for. He’s a soldier, a protector, and he’s haunted that one of the people he should’ve been able to protect didn’t let him. That was years ago, and now a hardened heart and a cocky attitude are his impenetrable shields, until one woman—one challenge—drives him to distraction.

On the outside, Beth Tourne has it all. Luxury car, gorgeous condo, and a job partying with the rich and famous. It’s a plush CIA cover, but she wants more. Anything for an adrenaline rush that can override her guilty numbness and let her forget the tragedy she never saw coming.

Their scars make them perfect operatives. Their mirrored pasts give them deep, wounded reasons to stay alone. But the more they ignore the tension, the more vulnerable they become. Survival means trust. In one another, behind closed doors, and on the job. The only way they’re making it out alive is if they find peace while waging a war.

Excerpt

Roman backed her against the wall, hands crawling up her arms, down her back. His body was too cut, too big. Too much to want to say no to. She arched into him, on him, her breaths far too stilted.

His fingers traced her jaw, his lips so close to hers. “You’ve changed your mind?”

No. Maybe. “Yes.” Thick air filled her lungs, rabid hunger made her lust drunk. The warmth of his almost-there kiss teased her without touching. “I changed my mind.”

He took a step back and bumped his fist against the wall over her shoulder as his head dropped back. “Fuck me.” He took a shaky breath in. “You’re drunk. I’m not. Let’s go before I become the asshole prick you think I am.”

Synopsis

Brooke Willis had everything she ever wanted: a happy marriage, volunteer placement at the art gallery, and the promise of starting a family with the man of her dreams.

Saxon Reed had everything he ever thought he needed: a successful career, nice cars, expensive apartment, and more money than he knew what to do with.

After losing her husband Brooke insists on taking over his company to keep his dreams alive. Struggling in an industry she knows nothing about, Brooke turns to Saxon, her husband’s best friend and business partner, for guidance and support. Their mutual grief, and Saxon’s need to look after his best friend’s wife, creates a connection beyond just business.

Can Brooke take over the company and find a new life without saying goodbye to the past? Can Saxon protect and care for Brooke without scaring her away?

What happens when your heart doesn’t listen to your head? When lines are crossed and boundaries are pushed?

“Life goes on, whether you choose to move forward and take a chance in the unknown or stay behind, locked in the past, thinking of what could’ve been. I don’t want to live in the past anymore. I’m so lonely; there’s nothing for me here.”

Excerpt

Gripping her hips so tightly she can no longer shake and shimmy them, I try to gain some kind of control over my anger. What the fuck is she doing?

As I step up behind her and hold her tight against me, the douche touching her releases his hands and steps back. Good idea, buddy. Brooke hasn’t turned to look at who it is, but I know from the way her body relaxed into mine that she knows it’s me.

“What are you doing, Brooke?” I say into her ear, trying to keep all traces of anger out of my voice. If she was mine, if I wasn’t so scared of pushing her away, I would have picked her up and thrown her over my shoulder and carried her the fuck out of here.

She turns her head slightly towards me. “I told you it was girls’ night tonight,” she says defensively.

“You know what I mean.” I grip her hips harder and pull her against me tighter as my control begins to snap.

She turns around in my arms and steps out of my embrace. “Saxon …” She’s frustrated and becoming flustered as she tries to find her words.

I don’t think about it as I grab her hand and begin to pull her off the dance floor. I don’t miss the curious looks from the two blondes, the confusion on Rachel’s face, or the smirk on Harper’s.

I couldn’t care what any of them think or if any of them find out. I actually wish they would. I want everyone to know Brooke is mine.

I don’t care how she feels about what we are doing, what she thinks it is—she is mine. I wanted to stake my claim on that dance floor. Tell that douche he better not put his hands on what’s mine and then take Brooke into my arms and show everyone exactly who she belongs to.

Of course I couldn’t do anything because I live in a constant state of panic, watching everything I say and do, living in the fear of scaring her off.

See Kay’s Goodreads Review Here

In the opening of this novel, you have a married couple so in love with each other and reveling in that love you can feel it ooze out of the pages of this story. They are so very happy, so very connected and have decided to start trying to make a baby. This led to a very nice first love scene. I knew where the story was headed but I smiled anyway as I continued to read. The beginning of the second chapter is her at his funeral and the devastation you feel for her as the pall bearers carry the casket. You hear what she’s seeing and thinking in her mind. The numbness, heartbreak and the hopelessness.

This story is about Brooke, Nate and Saxon. Brooke and Nate are the married couple and Saxon is Nate’s best friend. They had been best friends since high school. Nate’s family accepted Saxon into theirs, no questions asked. Saxon and Nate built their investment banking firm from the ground up together. Unbeknownst to Nate, Saxon has always had feelings for Brooke. Feelings he’s never expressed nor acted on. He just kind of pulled away enough so that these feelings didn’t change their friendship. Now his best friend is gone and he has to face his own loss and grief while watching Brooke fall apart.

The pacing of this story is over about a year’s time. During that time period, we see Brooke return to the land of the living, deciding to try and fit into the company her husband started. She tries to keep moving forward even if a part of her heart is missing. The more time she spend with Saxon, the closer they become, which leads to an intimate relationship. They both have to deal with the guilt and this guilt is stifling. Nate, the deceased husband, still looms large. Family coming to terms with Brooke and Saxon’s new found relationship isn’t easy either.

There was so much I liked about this book but let me tell about what I didn’t like first, so we end on a positive note. I liked both lead characters but never felt their connection on anything but a physical level. I tried to but just couldn’t. This is classified as a romance novel and their romance never clicked for me. The romance Brooke had with Nate was real and beautiful, which left my heart heavy as I knew where this was headed. Now, the things I liked were: the writing style, the emotions this style invoked in me and the acceptance toward the end of the book. I got teary eyed when Brooke finally realized that she didn’t have to choose between the two men she loved. She could have the love she did for both of them. Loving them both didn’t mean she was betraying her husband. Even in the future, she could take Nate with her, wherever she went. Saxon was a good guy too. He loved both Nate and Brooke so very much. Many times while reading this at night, I would reach over and touch my husband’s hair and panic at the thought of one day he wouldn’t be there. I wouldn’t be able to smell him on our sheets, our touch his skin or share more of our life together. For that reason alone, for anyone who has ever been in love, read this book and then love that person like there’s no tomorrow.

Release Day, Review & Giveaway ~ The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

Kristen Callihan Author Spotlight Banner

TheHookUp
Title: The Hook Up
Author: Kristen Callihan
Release Date: September 8, 2014
Genre: New Adult

 

The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love

Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she’s shut him down. Completely.

That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It’s a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

All’s fair in love and football…Game on

Excerpt

My mother once told me that the most important moment in my life wouldn’t be when I won the National Championship or even the Super Bowl. It would be when I fell in love.

Life, she insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living. Given that she told me this when I was sixteen, I basically rolled my eyes and worked on practicing my pass fakes.

But my mother was insistent.

“You’ll see, Drew. One day, love will creep up and smack you upside the head. Then you’ll understand.”

My mom, it turns out, was wrong in one regard. Love, when it came for me, did not creep. No, it walked up to me, bold as you please, you know, just in case I wasn’t paying attention. It did, however, slap me upside my head.

And while I’d be happy to tell my mom that she was right about that, she’s dead. A fact that hurts even more now that I’ve been struck down. More like shot down. Cut off at the knees. Totally fucked. Whatever you want to call this disaster. Because the object of my affection hates me.

I am man enough to acknowledge that the cluster fuck that is my current love life is entirely my fault. I wasn’t prepared for Anna Jones.

I still cringe at the memory of when I first laid eyes on her at the beginning of the semester. Being late for class, I’d rushed to a seat in the back row, and was trying to remain unnoticed. I can’t go anywhere on campus without getting attention. And though it sounds like an awesome thing, it gets tiring.

When the roll call reached the back row, a soft voice, rich and thick as maple syrup, slid over me.

“Anna Jones.”

Just her name. That was all she’d said. It was like a hot finger stroking down my spine. My head snapped up. And there she was, so fucking pretty that I couldn’t think straight. I might as well have been sacked.

Breathless, my head ringing, I could only gape. I’m not going to say it was love at first sight. No, it was more like oh, hell-yes-please, I’ll have that. With a helping of right-the-fuck-now on the side.

Thinking maybe I was overtired and simply overreacting to something that wasn’t really there, I stared at Anna Jones and tried to make sense of my extreme reaction.

As if feeling my gaze, she’d turned, and fucking hell… Her eyes were wide, almost cat-like, with the corners tilting up just a bit. At first, those eyes appeared brown, but they were really bottle green. And so clear. And annoyed. She glared at me. I didn’t care. One word was playing a loop in my head: mine.

I don’t remember the rest of the class. I watched Anna Jones like a condemned man getting his last view of the setting sun. While she tried to ignore me. Admirably.

The second class ended I shot up, and so did she. We nearly collided in the middle of the aisle. And then it all fell to shit.

I am not a fan of New Adult as a genre. I’m truly not and have quit reading books or refused to read them because they fell into this genre. I’m a grown woman and like to read grown up romances complete with explicit sex. I admit it, I’m a bit of a nasty girl. My complaint with this genre was the fact that my first few attempts at New Adult were almost what I considered Young Adult on the heat scale. No bueno. This book however, is what I think this genre should always be. College aged characters that have descriptive sex.

In a time where there are literally tons of broken characters in books, this story took two broken people and made their story believable and emotional. You have the college quarterback who has the world by the tail, but who still feels the loss of both parents with every part of his being. You also have the voluptuous redhead that has to work for everything she has while she continues to question what she really wants. They are unlikely to fall for each other but that’s exactly what happens. It isn’t always pretty but it is always heartfelt.

Drew notices Anna in class and pretty much falls for her right away. Anna takes some time to get used to the idea. She does agree to a “hook up” kinda of arrangement. Drew goes along with this for a while but after they have sex, he’s all in. He doesn’t care who knows and wants to shout that they are together from the rooftops but not Anna. Anna is too busy waiting for and dreading Drew to come to his senses about choosing her. She’s a full figured girl and with that there are scars that affect how Anna feels about herself. Self preservation is a bitch sometimes and gets the better of these two on more than one occasion. But in the end, there’s a beautiful love story of learning to love one’s self and love’s redemptive powers at work.

I only have two complaints about this book. The first one is that it seemed lengthy while I was reading it. The second was that I felt that the heroine was a bit of a slut. She’s maybe twenty-one and she’d already had mulitple sexual partners? Just a personal preference. I don’t have to have a virginal heroine by any means but it kind of struck me as sleazy. Other than those two complaints, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and eagerly await the next book. I hope Iris gets her own book. Hint, hint Ms. Callihan. Please.

This book was given in exchange for an honest review by the author.

Title: An Indecent Affair Part IV

Author: Stephanie Julian

Release date: September 15, 2014

 

About An Indecent Affair Part IV:

 

Kat has uprooted her life and moved to Philadelphia. She’s starting her own business and opening her heart. But caring for two men brings both rewards and pitfalls.

Tristan and Adam are determined to keep Kat close and win her heart. But work dangers and family obligations conspire to tear them apart before their fragile relationship has a chance to grow into something stronger.

Excerpt

Kat’s mouth dropped open at Tristan’s bald statement.

Naked and between them.

Oh, god, yes. That sounded wonderful.

She wanted that. And everything that went with it. All she needed was the courage to take what they offered.

Go ahead. Do it. Say yes.

Tristan watched her, his expression intent and a challenge in his eyes. From the very first, he’d been upfront about exactly what that he wanted. Which was her.

Nothing in her life had prepared her for Tristan. No one had ever pursued her with such straightforward commitment. It made her ache for everything he wanted to give her.

At the same time, it made her wary of giving herself over to him and having the rug pulled out from under her later.

That was a game her mother liked to play. Give with one hand and take away with the other.

Kat had learned to be wary of anyone who offered her anything with no visible strings attached. There were always strings. Something else her mother had taught her.

Her gaze skipped to Adam, who had all sorts of hidden strings. She wasn’t sure she had the necessary tools to deal with him. He held his emotions so closely in check, she sometimes wondered if he felt anything at all. Well, anything besides lust.

If they continued this affair, she’d have to learn to deal with that. And decide if she could live with a man who only wanted her sexually.

If Adam didn’t commit… If he was only in it for the short-term…

Could she live with knowing she would be only a bed partner to him?

Can you live with knowing you didn’t even try?

She’d regret it every single day.

“I want that, too.”

Tristan’s immediate smile lit him up, stealing the air from her lungs. His expression transformed into one of a man who’d gotten exactly what he wanted. Which was her. The thought made excitement sizzle and pop along her nerves.

Then she slid another glance at Adam and panic nipped at her confidence.

“It’s just…” She struggled to pick the right words. “I’m just not sure I know how to do…this.”

Tristan shook his head. “There’s no right or wrong. We’ll figure out what works for us as we go.”

She nodded but that didn’t exactly make her feel better. She liked having a plan. Liked knowing what was expected of her. Where she fit into the scheme of things.

“Kat.”

Adam’s voice made her blink before her gaze flipped to him.

“Yes?”

We want this. Both of us.”

Adam stared at her just as intently as Tristan had seconds ago. But his eyes lacked the warmth Tristan’s held. Or did they?

She couldn’t read Adam. As much as she tried, as much as she wanted to, she didn’t know what he was thinking. The only thing she was sure of was Adam’s desire for her. That was clear as day.

Frustration bit at her. Would it always be like this? Would she always be lacking something in Adam’s eyes? And did it matter, if she found what she needed in Tristan’s?

“Do you? How can I know that for sure?”

Adam’s chin lifted. “You can’t. You can only trust me when I say that I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t want to be.”

She absolutely believed that. She also knew that Adam’s bond to Tristan was so strong, Adam might accept her into his bed simply because he knew that’s what Tristan wanted.

Except that didn’t explain yesterday’s encounter.

“Did you tell him?”

The question escaped before she could bite her tongue. She wanted to take back the words immediately. Glancing at Tristan, he didn’t look shocked or surprised as Adam nodded.

Thank god.

That pressing weight on her shoulders suddenly felt twenty times lighter.

“Good. That’s…good. I don’t want there to be secrets.”

With a widening grin, Tristan took a step closer. “I’m glad we’re on the same page. Adam and I know each other. We trust each other. You’re not a prize we’re competing for. You’re the woman we want to make love to.”

Desire heated her blood at the warmth in Tristan’s eyes. Her fingers itched with the urge to reach out and run her fingers along Tristan’s strong jaw. To feel the slight abrasion of his whiskers against her skin. To let her fingers run down his neck to the broad muscles of his chest. Wanted to strip off his shirt and press her naked body against his.

She wanted Adam to plaster himself against her back, grip her hips with his hands and bite her neck so hard he left a mark.

Her gaze flipped to Adam, who’d held his ground.

“But you have to understand,” Adam said. “I’m not Tristan. I’m not easy.”

Amazingly, Adam’s blunt statement made her smile. As her lips curved, Adam’s expression lost some of its darkness.

“I’ve actually been able to pick that up on my own.”

Tristan cut the distance between them by another step and her heart skipped a couple of beats.

“So are you ready to eat?’ Tristan asked.

She blinked. “You want to eat first?”

Tristan’s grin widened and even Adam’s lips curved.

Reaching for her hand, Tristan squeezed her fingers then rubbed his thumb over her knuckles. “We’re not just interested in sex.”

Neither was she. But relationships were fraught with even more pitfalls than “just sex.”

“Okay.”

“Kat.”

She looked at Adam.

“Yes?”

“Do you want to eat?”

She did. Her stomach rumbled at the thought. “Dinner. Yes. Let’s order dinner.”

“Or would you rather we lay you out on the table and show you why you won’t be sorry you said yes?”

About Stephanie Julian:

 

Stephanie JulianI’m a reformed reporter who enjoys making up stories much more than writing about real life.

In sixth grade, I found my mother’s stash of romance novels hidden under her bed and realized they were much more interesting than the books in the school library. I devoured Rosemary Rogers, Bertrice Small and, most especially, Kathleen Woodiwiss.

In college, I majored in English and continued to expand my favorites list. Shakespeare, the Canterbury Tales, the Bronte sisters, Mary Shelley. Then I graduated and discovered there wasn’t much I could do with an English degree.

That’s when I found out they would pay me to write for a living at a newspaper. Want to learn how to write tight and clean? Work for a daily local and condense a three-hour meeting with an angry mob of residents upset about a sewer system overhaul into 15 inches in 20 minutes.

After my sons were born, I freelanced, working at home in my drafty attic office, and developed a two-book-a-day Harlequin habit that turned into a writing habit. My first attempts at romance were firmly rooted in the Harlequin tradition and I sold my first two romances to Avalon Books under the name Stephanie Scott.

But writing sweet romances was not what I’d had in mind. I wanted to write books where people actually got to have sex. I contracted my first erotic romance to Ellora’s Cave and never looked back.

I write sexy series that combine heat with heart. Four are linked by Etruscan Magic: Magical Seduction, Lucani Lovers, Forgotten Goddesses and Darkly Enchanted. I also write the silly-funny, super-sexy Lovers on the Fringe series and the straight contemporary DeMarco Investigations series. I’m also writing the serial menage, INDECENT.

BY PRIVATE INVITATION, NO RESERVATIONS and OVER EXPOSED comprise the contemporary erotic romance series, Salon Games.

I’m happily married to a Springsteen fanatic and I’m the mother of two sons who introduced me to the joys of Slipknot, Warped Tour and never-ending headaches.
