Bliss_OnThePlusSide_MM

Big girls don’t cry. They go after what they want.

Thanks to her bangin’ curves, Valerie Carmichael has always turned heads-with the exception of seriously sexy Logan Mathis. Just Valerie’s luck that the object of her lust-filled affection is also best friends with her overprotective brother. But Valerie’s determined to get Logan’s attention…even if it means telling a teeny little lie to get a job at his new bar.

Logan can’t remember a time when Valerie didn’t secretly fuel all his hottest fantasies. Now the curvaceous she-devil is working behind his bar, tempting him every damn night. It’s only when he finds Valerie’s naughty things-to-do list that Logan decides to break every rule in the book-by making each red-hot deed a reality.

No one warned them that they were going to fall this hard. And no one warned them that sometimes the smallest secrets can have the biggest consequences.

PlusSide-Quote-Graphic-2

Excerpt

Valerie Carmichael needed a drink. A strong one. Because it was the only way she envisioned herself getting through the night.

An elbow nudged into her side, bringing her thoughts back to the crowded bar. “I can’t see anything through all of these people,” Brett said, scanning the room with his eyes. “Come on, let’s go to the other side so I can get a better view.”

Sighing, Valerie trudged behind him without a word.

When Brett had asked her to attend the grand opening of Bottoms Up, a new bar in their hometown of Granite, Texas, she’d hesitated to say yes. Sure, she was curious what the inside of the recently remodeled bar looked like and had no doubt the place would be jam-packed with handsome, available men. But it was still the last place on earth she wanted to be.

She knew better than to hang out in bars with her older and only—thank God—brother. Every time she’d done so in the past, the nights had always ended the same way. Brett would spend the entire evening hovering over her like a rabid pit bull, daring any single guy with a glint in his eye to look her way. Because Valerie turned heads. She always had.

Oh, she wasn’t silly enough to believe she looked like some gorgeous supermodel with a lean, trim figure or anything. She definitely didn’t. But she had a pretty face, banging plus-size curves, and a lively personality. And that was good enough for her. Valerie was just…Valerie. And damn proud of it.

Across the room, Sam and Leah emerged from the dense crowd, with a beer bottle for him and a glass of water for her. Apparently, Leah was still on that damn diet and counting calories so she would fit into her wedding dress. Though why she didn’t just buy the dress in a larger size was beyond Valerie.

Leah blinked at the sight of her. “Val? What are you doing here? You said you weren’t coming.”

Valerie shrugged. “I changed my mind.”

“Are you feeling okay?”

“Yeah, sure. Why?”

“When you said you didn’t want to go out, I assumed you were sick. You never turn down a night out.” Leah placed her palm lightly against Valerie’s forehead. “You sure you don’t have the flu or something?”

Valerie laughed and pushed her friend’s hand away. “Oh, stop it. I just didn’t feel like getting dressed up. I’m getting tired of the whole bar scene.”

Then Valerie’s heart stopped, along with her lips. Oh God.

Brett stood there talking to a tall, dark-haired man who had one thumb hooked in the front pocket of his jeans while he leaned comfortably against the wall with his right shoulder. She couldn’t see the other guy’s face, but she didn’t need to. Valerie recognized all six feet, two inches of him. Logan Mathis.

When I read this story… my first thought was, I am a true believer of FATE!

You have Tristan who is looking to just have a one night stand, and goes to a “play party” to have it, before he moves off to another town to be a professor. He has a “history” that will come back to bite him in the butt, but he is trying to rise above it and better himself.

And then on the other side of this, you have Isabelle, she too has had a past. An abusive relationship that almost left her dead. She his now trying to move forward after of living a sheltered life for over a year…everyone trying to protect her and “pamper” her. After everything she has gone through, she has learned that she in interested in the BDSM lifestyle. She has taken the proper steps to learn about it… but she has never experienced it. Isabelle is close with her cousin, who lives the lifestyle and has been invited to her “play party” before she leaves to go off to college. She isn’t looking for a relationship…she knows she is moving away…and she just wants to have some fun.

Isabelle walks into the party, not dressed like the others, but did the best she could after working at the family bakery all day. She grabs the attention of Tristan. Tristan watches her from afar, but finally speaks to her. The connection they had… and the trust that Isabelle had in Tristan was unusual for a first encounter, but it worked.

So they have their “one and done” encounter and then they go their separate ways. Neither spoke of their lives. Then weeks later, they run into each other again, Tristan is the professor, and Isabelle is the student.

Do the continue in their adventures together, or do they forget each other? Oh YES… THEY DO!

This is a sweet and sexy story and loved every minute of it… She was.. At His Mercy, and it was GOOD!

Blue Boy Studio Series

Cam is a veteran porn star at Blue Boy Studios. Known as Mr. Nice Guy, he’s the top every newbie bottom wants to be paired with.



But in recent months his beloved hardcore scenes have dried up. Instead, he finds himself stuck with a string of monotonous foreplay scenes. He takes his frustration to his boss, and warped kind of lover, Jon Kellar, but Jon won’t bend. Cam is a commodity and will do as he’s told…in every way.



Cam’s frustration builds, but a chance meeting with a hot BMXer distracts him. Sasha Tate is gorgeous, warm and wonderful; everything Cam has ever wanted. They bond over shared interests and a sizzling mutual attraction. Cam is exhilarated and thrilled, until his chosen profession gets in the way.



Sasha pulls back, and before Cam can fix it, life comes at him from all fronts. A crisis threatens much more than his relationship with Sasha, and as his world implodes he begins to realize that life will never be the same again.

Cameron is a star at Blue Boy Studio. When he gets in a booty call relationship with his boss, he ends up with less starring roles and more solo performances. Sasha Tate, BMX biker, meets him at the record shop Cameron works at during the day. Although they have a mutual attraction things don’t go smoothly and Cam’s boss doesn’t want to give up his control. Life seems to take a drastic turn and Cam has some decisions to make.

“‘Friends?’

‘Yeah, friends. Maybe you need one you don’t fuck.’ The words stung, but before Cam could retaliate, Sasha shook his head and groaned. ‘Shit. I didn’t mean that.’

Cam snorted. ‘So what did you mean? That I’m a freakin’ man whore?’

Guilt colored Sasha’s features before he caught it and schooled his expression, but Cam saw it like a goddamned billboard sign. Sasha didn’t want to fuck a dirty, used porn star.”

These stories so far have struck me quite emotionally. Cam is the nice guy in the porn industry, but he’s involved in a toxic relationship with his boss, Jon. We all know that getting involved with your boss is a no-no. When Cam meets Sasha things seem to look up. But something is off and then Cam’s life seems to get more topsy-turvy. Sasha drove me a little crazy with his hot and cold dealings with Cam. I felt so badly when Cam really felt like he had no one he could share with. He’s the nice guy but does anyone really know him? Know his struggles? I really am so curious about all of the guys’ lives. I loved having a little more Sonny and Levi and I wonder what’s going to happen next with those two. And what about Kai and the new guys? I have so many questions!

If you like M/M, these are great short stories about guys working in the porn industry. The emotional aspects and the struggles these guys go through make the stories very compelling. I know that I’ll continue to read more in this series because I feel invested in their friendships and relationships.

Lindsay is in college and has come to the decision to stop being a “puck bunny” to the hockey team at her school after her heart is broken. But some habits are hard to break! She puts all her focus on her studies and is determined to stay away from the games, players and other puck bunnies alike. It is brought to her attention that she will be needing extra tutoring for one of her math classes.

Ryder or aka Ox…..hot, intelligent, charming sexy and naturally one of the teams best players has decided to give some of his time and help tutor. Just so happens Lindsay is his student.

It was really fun to watch these two banter back and forth and it had a few witty one liners. Lindsay, tries to fight her attraction to Ryder. At first she thinks he is just a womanizing manwhore and doesn’t even want his help to study but soon realizes he is her only hope. Ryder, never one to back down from a challenge, vows to get Lindsay to change her mind about him and her preconceived notions she has about him. The push and pull was funny and romantic and I found myself smiling and loving some of Ryders tactics to win Lindsay over.

This book is a quick, fun read and will surely hold your attention. Great beach read for upcoming summer! Definitely recommend!!

Excerpt

I also knew that I couldn’t sit in my Jeep all night thinking about Sunny, so I took a deep breath and prepared myself to walk into the house.

 

Each step I took felt like I had ankle weights attached to my legs. Then I felt my stomach flip and my heart drop as I heard the music playing from the doorway. My mother’s garbled, tearful voice was singing, but it sounded more like shouting Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You?” I knew which kind of drunk she was tonight.

 

I walked through the unlocked door and found my mother sprawled on her belly on the couch, one hand waving a large bottle of wine while she continued to sing terribly. She didn’t even notice I was there. What if it hadn’t been me? What if it had been a murdering rapist?

 

I felt my blood turn cold. I might not like my mother right now, but she was the only parent still around, and I loved her.

 

I crouched down by the couch and touched her shoulder. “Mom.”

 

She bent her head back and looked up into my face with eyes that were glassy and unfocused, and a face that was puffy and wet from crying. For a moment, she looked at me like she didn’t know who I was, until she whispered, “Oh, Judd.”

 

The bottle dropped to the floor with a loud thunk as she wailed, “He left us!”

 

I looked down at the bottle, prepared to go get some towels to clean up the mess, but nothing spilled out. She had already drunk the whole bottle.

 

“That bastard,” she mumbled before her head plopped back down. She buried her face into the couch cushion, her whole body heaving in great big sobs.

 

I left the bottle on the floor and tried to get my mom up so I could get her to the bedroom and into bed. I managed to flip her over, but her body was limp as she continued sobbing.

 

“Just leave me here to die.”

 

I sighed and rolled my eyes at her dramatic words. “You’re not dying. Come on; let’s get you up and into bed.”

 

She sat up, her face the perfect imitation of a toddler’s pout. “Why did he want to be … one of those things, Judd? Tell me why!” she yelled the last part.

 

“I don’t know, Mom.”

 

This was not the discussion I wanted to have about my father with her. She never talked about what had happened that night, unless it was to whine, scream, and cry while she was drunk. My mother always acted like he had left her for another woman. I guessed he did in his own way. Except that other woman was himself.

 

Yeesh. Someone call either Jerry Springer or Dr. Phil.

 

I managed to get her up on her feet then looped her arm around my shoulders and mine around her waist as I basically dragged her down the hall. That was when the familiar coughing/gagging sound started coming from her, and I tried to double time it to the hall bathroom, but we didn’t make it.

 

She projectile vomited all over the hall. The sour stench turned my stomach, and I had to fight my own gag reflex.

 

I took deep breaths through my mouth and closed my eyes. Eff my life.

WOWZA! Talk about a hot read! WOOWEEEE! This is a first time read by this author for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The writing style was one I connected with quickly. The characters were intense and full of spunk and grit. I really liked it a lot.

Bridgewater is a very unique town. When Catherine comes back to handle some family issues she did not expect to find a sexy cowboy. And she definitely wasn’t expecting to want to throw down some roots. She loved the big city life, the craziness, and the hustle. She was a go getter. When she meets Jack on the plane she never thought she would see him again. But boy does she!

Jack and Sam are cousins. And to be honest I thought this was a little weird at first. But as the story progressed I finally understood what they were about. I was on board! They are completely different from one another. Jack fun, Sam serious. But one thing is for sure, they love the women. And they love them damn well.

I wont spoil the book for ya. Youll have to read these sexy cowboys and enjoy. This was a light read. Nothing majorly heavy. It was a blast to read and most definitely very sexy!

Ride Me Dirty (Bridgewater Ménage: Bridgewater County Book 1) by Vanessa Vale

Date of Publication: April 6, 2017

They remember her as a pesky kid.

She doesn’t remember them at all.

Her life’s in New York. The property she’s inherited is in Bridgewater, Montana. Going back to the town she visited every summer as a child stirs up long forgotten memories and a girlhood crush, on not one teen-turned-hot-cowboy, but two. Cousins Jack and Sam Kane. Fortunately for her, in Bridgewater, one cowboy’s never enough.

In this contemporary version of Vanessa Vale’s USA Today bestselling, Bridgewater Menage series, Catherine is forced to choose the life she really wants: the big-city lawyer or the small town cowgirl with two men who want to take her for a very dirty ride.

Sivan has been in and out of foster homes until she lands at Betty’s house. Little did she know that Jax Jayne, youngest brother to a rock band group, would be joining her. Will she be able to keep her walls up to keep the distance between them or will Jax be the one to tear everything down?

“Sivan was different from any girl I’d ever met. Fiery, yes. But I liked that about her. She’d been through something. Grief and loneliness peeked from behind those eyes. And strength, she didn’t know it yet. She also had a vulnerability that made me want to protect her – from everything, past and present.”

This was quite an emotional YA read. A lot more than I anticipated. Both Sivan and Jax had issues they needed to resolve and reasons to maintain walls. I had really never given much thought to how hard it would be to be a twin of someone famous…poor Jax! Not even to go into the trauma that Sivan had suffered. I loved Betty and how she nurtured her foster children and tried to ease them into a loving and healthy family environment. Sivan and Jax were really sweet together and this was a great YA book about healing and young love. Very enjoyable.

If you are looking for a new young adult book, I would definitely give this one a try. Its story has a great sense of family and emotional healing. I would definitely let my daughter read it
