Nobody’s home at the millionaire’s estate on remote Frakes Island. And nobody seems to be watching. Becca Cantrell dives in for an illicit midnight skinnydip–and gets hauled out by a towering, hard-muscled guy with burning dark eyes. He seems to be in charge. Good. The man is the embodiment of her most intense fantasies. And she’s up for risky thrills . . .

Nick Ward can’t tell her that he’s spying on a vicious Russian crime boss. Becca could be his worst enemy: an assassin sent to kill him, a call girl sent to distract him, or the worst scenario of all–a clueless innocent. Anyway he looks at it, she’s trouble: beautiful, bare, dripping-wet trouble. The kind he can’t resist.

She’s not scared. After one taste of his hot mouth, Becca soon discovers just how fearless she can be. She’ll need it, too–because things are about to explode on Frakes Island, launching Becca and Nick into danger they could never have imagined–and a passion that could destroy them both.


This is an oldie but goodie for me. I read it at the beginning of my romance stage, so this author will always have a special place in my heart.

Nick is an ex-Fed trying to live down a string of professional bad calls. They eat away eat him terribly. He’s a man whore and has never had a meaningful relationship. When he’s undercover, he runs into a beautiful woman who fastly becomes his whole entire world.

Becca is a self admitted good girl. She doesn’t rock the boat at all. After her ex’s betrayal, she tries to take a small trip to get away from it all. She stumbles into the middle of an undercover situation that’s truly monstrous. The only person she can trust is a man who may be every bit as bad as the monsters.

Shannon McKenna was at the top of her game when this series first started. She went off the deep end with the mind control drugs and I stopped reading her. If you love humor, suspense, blistering sex scenes and filthy mouthed alpha males, read McKenna. She knows how to get it done.

All Ryker Dennison wanted was to become President of the Roaming Devil’s Motorcycle Club. It would be his legacy. His grandfather and father had both held the title and he was the next in line.

Enter Ella Hawkins. He had known her since they were fifteen and had tried to push her memory away. Their troublesome past included her father arresting him, which was not something he could easily forget. But when she came to him, pleading for his help to save the one man he despised from a rival motorcycle gang, he found himself agreeing to help her, thus breaking the number one rule of the MC.

Ryker soon finds himself with a major dilemma. Women weren’t part of the club life and bringing Ella into his world would only mean putting her in danger. With his father trying to push Ella away from him for his own benefit, her father constantly trying to arrest him, and his own desire for her getting in the way of his club life, he finds himself going against everything to be with the woman he loved. Will breaking the rules land him in the ultimate position to have everything he ever wanted? Or will his risky move cost him everything, including the woman of his dreams?


I always enjoy finding a new author to read. It’s a rare thing for me nowadays. Tried and true when I have to spend my money. I also enjoy finding a new MC romance series. Bonus is, new series and new author.

Ryker is slated to take the gavel and be the President of the Roaming Devils MC after his father steps down or dies. He’s ready. The club has been his way of life for as long as he can remember. His vision for the MC is different from his father’s. He knows there will be resistance but he’s up for the challenge.

Ella is a doctor and the daughter of a police officer that is set on taking down Ryker’s club. Ella went to high school with Ryker, knows what the MC is about and goes to Ryker for help. This starts a series of events that will have light suspense fans cheering.

Good start to a new series and I’m really looking forward to the next one. Will it be Superman or Vampire?

Greer has always been there for Asher, but she wishes she could break through her shyness and show how much she truly loves him. But after a steamy, mindless fling at Hunter and Gretchen’s engagement party, Greer finds herself tossed aside and forced to admit that you can’t love someone who doesn’t acknowledge you exist.

It’s a shame he got her pregnant.

After his fiancée betrayed him and tanked his business in one fell swoop, Asher has spent his time trying to rebuild his wealth and forget the past. But he doesn’t understand why Greer blew him off after their night together—until he catches a glimpse of her belly.

Now Asher is willing to do whatever it takes to convince Greer she belongs with him. And he’s very skilled at the art of persuasion.


Asher is a self made man. He started with nothing. Built a company. Lost that company due to his girlfriend’s cheating and betrayal, He rebuilt his company and is now a billionaire but hides his pain at his ex’s actions behind a bottle of alcohol.

Greer is a trust fund baby. Her father is a Hugh Hefner type. She has money but has never had a parent who cared anything about her. She’s an afterthought in her own life. She’s loved Asher for years. She’s watched him through it all.

I enjoyed the story. It managed to hold my interest during the worst book funk that I’ve ever had. I love unplanned pregnancies in my books. I love watching the hot guy fall for the Plain Jane type. I also love the humor of Jessica Clare’s writing.

One kiss lasts a moment. But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime.One boy. One girl. A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade. A bond that neither time nor distance can break. A bond that will last forever. Or so they believe.When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation? Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come.



This book was the most wonderful love story that I have ever read. It was precious and innocent. Love in it’s most simple and pure form. A boy and a girl who became best friends at 5, soulmates at 8 and had the love of a lifetime at 15. I’m still sitting here with tears in my eyes and a goofy smile on my face.

Poppy was amazing. Her outlook on life was awe-inspiring. Her faith in God and her acceptance of what lay ahead for her, made me tear up over and over. She was sweet and kind. Never felt sorry for herself and life dealt her a shit ass hand. She is my most favorite heroine that I’ve ever read about.

Rune. The hero. There were several times that I wanted to shake him but I understood his anger. It was watching him process and come to terms with it that was an emotional journey. Poppy and her love made him a better person. Everyone should be loved the way Rune loved Poppy.

Love intense romances? Don’t mind a little tears with yours? If so, read this book. You will cry but you will never read a love story that’s as beautiful as this one.

Reagan Elliot should be living her dream…

She’s touring with Exodus End as their new rhythm guitarist and gaining more notoriety and fame than she ever imagined possible.

She’s earned the devoted love of not only one, but two spectacular men. Her committed threesome with sexy guitarist Trey Mills and her hunky bodyguard Ethan Conner is stable, loving, deep, and satisfying for all involved.

But sometimes the world sees things differently and is determined to destroy what it doesn’t understand.

Can Reagan’s relationship with Trey and Ethan survive the cruel backlash of the media, her family, and a bigoted public? Or will the talented musician lose everything she holds dear in the face of her own burgeoning doubts?


I love Olivia Cunning’s books. She writes rock stars great. Her stories suck you in and you become obsessed. I liked Trey, Ethan and Reagan’s story. I thought that they could totally be a triad. Not all authors can truly write a triad. I can only think of three.

What I liked:

Ethan’s mom.

Trey’s parents.


Sinners and Exodus End members being in the story.

What I didn’t like:

Ethan was rough with Trey sexually.

The constant insecurities by all three characters.

I felt that Ethan and Reagan had some self-loathing issues.

I really don’t think we needed another story about these three.

Recipe: 1 Porn Star, 1 Step Sister, 1 Wealthy Father, 1 Flighty Stepmother

Take one trust fund baby porn star, a stepsister in need of money, and a wealthy father the flighty stepmother stole from. Add in a lot of sex, a huge dose of tragedy, a load of betrayal, a pinch of revenge and a heap of arrogance. Mix them together and shake shit up for a few weeks.

The result?

One VERY Dirty Boy.


Max is a porn star. He is also part owner for the studio he works for. In case, you are unaware, he’s a first class prick. Plain and simple. No way to sugar coat it. He is a vile and wretched individual.

Story is a young woman who has had a history of bad luck. Not just that, her mother is the stuff nightmares are made of. What kind of mother tells her daughter to strip, look for a sugar daddy or go into porn?! She also took out credit in Story’s name and didn’t pay the bills. Story is sweet, long suffering and unfortunately desperate.

This was the beginning of a possible new series for Kathryn Kelly, I think. I liked it but I didn’t love it. It read more like erotica than erotic romance to me. I love an alpha male who can be an alpha hole but Max was just cruel. I’ll continue on with series if that’s the direction Kathryn goes. I want Kellan’s book.

The right love is worth the wait.

Seven years have passed since I fell for Boone West. The brooding bad boy. We were friends, even when I secretly wanted more, but I settled for what he offered. After he left Wyoming–and me–I grew up. Moved on. Or so I believed until he blew back into my life with the scorching force of an Arizona desert wind.

I’m not that innocent sixteen-year-old girl anymore–I’m a businesswoman who swore never to settle again. But this older, wiser, hotter version of Boone unsettles me. How am I supposed to resist his megawatt smile and his built-army-strong body? Especially when he’s inserting himself into every aspect of my life? Now he’s determined to prove he can offer me everything that he couldn’t before–and he’s the only man that can fix the heart that he broke.

Joining the army? Best decision I ever made. Even though it meant I had to leave her behind. Sierra McKay. The wide-eyed beauty, who saw more in me than I saw in myself. I didn’t dare offer her anything more than friendship, because one kiss, one touch and I wouldn’t have had the guts to go.

I’ve worked hard to become the man I am. I have a career. A purpose. After a chance encounter with the one woman I never forgot–I’m not leaving anything else to chance. Now that I’ve chased her across three states, I’m ready to demonstrate that the passion we couldn’t act on before burns hotter than ever between us. And I’ll use every weapon in my arsenal to show Sierra McKay that she’s always been mine.


I am so glad that I got to read this book! I love all things McKay and West! I loved the series that spawned this one. I cried after reading Cowboy Take Me Away. I was devastated that the series was over! I needed Boone and Sierra’s book.

Boone is a West. Sierra is a McKay. Their families are related but not these two particular people. The author put this story on a slow simmer and made us wait. As a reader of the first series, you don’t really know a lot about the Wests. It’s still my hope that the author will finish the West saga. This was a sweet love story and has whetted my appetite for the next book.

Lorelei James is a wonderfully talented author. She evokes such an emotional response from her readers. Whether she’s writing about ranching, war injuries, health issues or committed triads, she sucks you into her stories. Thank you Ms. James for bringing me back to the family that I love and have missed terribly.

I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.

He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?


As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.

Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.

The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find a way to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.


I really enjoyed this first book in Callihan’s new series. I love rock star romances. What woman hasn’t crushed on a rock star? I sure have. The author did a great job with her characters, both primary and secondary.

You have a band member struggling with his musical desire while trying to deal with another band mate’s attempted suicide. His battle with his future and the future of the band. He disappears from that life. Takes a break in a small town.

You also have a woman who’s living half a life after the death of her parents. When the rock star literally crashes into her life, he’s everything she abhors.

Will he ever find his way back to music? Get over his guilt and anger at his friend’s attempted suicide? Find his muse? Will she ever face her life? Do what she’s good at? Will they find any of it together? You’ll have to read and find out for yourselves.

Troy Brennan

Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heart-throb with steel-blue eyes. “The Fixer” who can make or break you in this city.

Oh, and my new husband.

Sparrow Raynes

That’s me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life.
But then he caged me.
Kidnapped me.
And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up.
Put simply, Troy Brennan clipped my wings.

I have dreams, big ones, but I doubt he’ll ever let me chase them. I have no idea why he decided to take me as his wife. But I do know this: pissing off this man will not do me any good. At all.


If you can’t handle cheating, stay away from this one.

What does it mean when the most infamous man in town demands that you marry him? Even though he hasn’t looked your way since you were a child. Why did he kidnap you and force you into marriage? Why is his friend warning you off but your parent urging you on? How does the plain girl land the most eligible bachelor? Why is your new husband demanding your fidelity while never offering you his? What secrets does he have? Why are you attracted to this monster? Will you ever get the answers you need or the security you require? Will you even live through the experience?

All of these questions get answered and then some. I really enjoyed watching Sparrow grow more and more comfortable with herself. I also loved her refusal to put up with Troy’s shit. Troy really was a vile man for most of the book. His only saving grace was that he fell in love with his wife eventually. There is good suspense and hot sex in this book, if you can overlook the initial cheating.

Ophelia Donovan wants to move past the loves of her life, two badass bikers in her brother’s MC. When she gave Cash “Ghost” McCall and Louis “Stretch” King, an ultimatum of bringing their relationship out in the open or she’d walk, they chose separation. It crushed Ophelia’s dreams of having a happily-ever-after and family with Ghost and Stretch.

Stretch lives with guilt and pain from the death of his former lover and the injuries he received the same night. For a while, Cash and Stretch worked fine. They’d agreed to choose a woman together to bring into their relationship. Instead, Cash brought Outlaw’s sister in, intending to use her as a shield for Cash’s growing feelings for both Stretch and Fee. The dissolution of their relationship because of Fee’s goading leaves Stretch angry with both of his lovers.

Ghost doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t have the confidence in himself that he’s equipped for something meaningful. He only knows he loves both Stretch and Ophelia. She wants kids, a house with him and Stretch, and, most of all, an open relationship with them. So open she expects Ghost to go to her brothers—his club’s president—and confess all. Even if he did do commitment, he wouldn’t be alive to see it through. Outlaw would kill Ghost, especially after already warning him away.

Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell knows Ghost is about fun and fucking. He’s in charge of the Bobs, those women trotted out for pleasure at special club occasions. Outlaw’s little sister wants a family and he refuses to allow her to waste her years on a man who’ll walk away in the end. Outlaw’s life has been quiet recently, with every known club threat removed, giving him plenty of time to focus on family.

Thanks to Cash’s outrageous plan to throw Outlaw off, he raises the man’s suspicions instead. A biker from a rival club uses Ophelia to get on Outlaw’s good side, leaving her gravely injured, Outlaw in jail, Stretch admitting how important both she and Cash are to him, and Cash determined to never deny his love again.


It has taken me a while to write my review because, I was and still am in denial. I can’t believe the series is over. I feel like I’ve lost a dear friend. I’m sullen, grouchy and a bit lonely. I love this series. It has captivated me since I opened my first book. Not only did I get to read a great series but I got to get to know Kat Kelly. She’s a wonderful friend and I am so blessed that she reached out to me. So, for my review, I’m going to say goodbye to these characters individually.

Cash McCall, Stretch King and Ophelia Donovan- what a wonderful triad you are. Stretch, you had my heart all the way through your journey. Ophelia, kudos to you for sticking to your guys with these two. Thank you for befriending Kendall, even when she didn’t deserve it. Cash, you were quite possibly the most selfish character of the whole series and almost didn’t deserve these two.

Digger- you had me hating you for a long time. You thoroughly convinced me of your betrayal. I’m glad you ended up being a good guy.

Bunny-I’m glad you got your HEA. You certainly deserved it.

Val- You poor screwed up man. I liked you so much better before you became so stupid.

Zoann- Bless your precious heart. You endured so much in your life. I’m thankful you and Val worked it out.

Mortician- Mort, how I love you! I love your humor, your darkness, your care and keeping of all the women in your life, including your friendship with Red.

Bailey- You are a saint. Mort was an ass to you while he fought his attraction to you. You got the best of both of your parents.

Megan- I adore you. Your love and trust of Christopher is exactly what a wife should have for her husband. The quiet yet firm way you ruled the women. Your patience, sweet lord, your patience.

Christopher- I still hate you! I hate you less now than early on in the series but I still hate you. The only thing positive I can say about you is that you LOVE your wife. When your death comes, I hope Kendall is the one causing it.

Johnnie-I loved you so much in the beginning. Then I lost respect for you when you failed Kendall again and again. I never questioned your love for her, just your defense of her.

Kendall- You were an amazing character. I wanted to hug and comfort you, then you showed your ass again. I wanted to shake you then. Back and forth, back and forth. You had your demons that you constantly battled and you lost more than you won with them. Stay away from Christopher. He’s your Kryptonite. Your attraction to him makes me want to throw up.

Thank you Kat for writing this series and your friendship. Maybe, check in with the Death Dwellers MC sometime? Maybe write about the kids next? What ever you decide, I’ll be there breathless with anticipation.
