After kicking my cheating boyfriend to the curb, I was ready to drown my sorrows in a bottle of tequila. Then I saw him. What started out as a sexy flirtation turned into a night of red-hot passion. When I woke the next morning next to a naked man whose name I couldn’t remember, I did the only thing I could — I ran. 
When the beautiful, curvy blonde laid one on me, I couldn’t stop with one kiss. Before I knew it, we’d spent a mind-blowing night together. When I woke up alone, I did everything I could to find her, but the trail ran cold.

 

Two years later, we are unexpectedly reunited, and I discover the secret she’s kept from me.

 

I refuse to let her get away again. Not when she’s the mother of my child.

This is a short novella with a lot in it. I hope that there will be a continuation to this story… because I want MORE!

This is a short story about Sofie and David. Sofie finds her boyfriend cheating on her and kicks him out. She needs to go out and forget about him…and she does something that she would not normally do… she drinks and meets someone and sleeps with him.
She is embarrassed by her behavior and does the “walk of shame” before he wakes up…and never sees him again.
Things happen and her life changes because of that one indiscretion of her. (Well, the title pretty much tell you what the life changing event was.) LOL
By a chance the run into each other again during a vacation.
Will she tell him about the baby? Will they be able to pick up where they left off?

If you haven’t read anything by this author, this is a great story to start with. Just know, most of her stories are full length, and don’t want you wanting more…like this story does.

I want to know how much further the relationship can go between Sofie and David.
This story has so much in it for just being a novella… and I hope the author continues this storyline so I will know what happens with these two.

Secrets of Submission is a HEA book in the Secrets series.

about-the-book-4

At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last…a fairy tale of my very own.

But this story isn’t about Jake. It’s about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me—downright pisses me off at times—but he also brings me back to life.

My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice—the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.

Reviewed by JoannaThis is such a beautiful story.It starts off with a story of Sidney living in the “system”. By the age of ten, she is taken in with a foster family. She had hopes that she would finally find a family and be happy. Little did she know, her foster parents only took her in for the money, they didn’t care. Thankfully there was a foster brother, Conner, who made it better for her. They got along well and grew up to be great siblings.
In high school Sidney meets Jake and they begin to date. Jake know about the life Sidney is living, and invites her to his house for the holidays, and Sidney is welcomed.

I don’t want to tell to much more about the story… afraid to give up to much of what happens.

I do want to tell you that there are two wonderful men in this story. You have Jake, and then you will also get to meet Abel. Both completely different from each other, but they both help Sidney “Collect the Pieces” of herself. So beautiful.

Just know… there are tears. Yes, you will probably cry, but then you will be happy again… and then you will be sad…and then happy. LOL In other words, hold on…you will be on an emotional rollercoaster, but is will be SO worth it.

So well written… I couldn’t put it down.

Synopsis

Edwin Allen Mercer
I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they’ve read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Murder is, after all, a dirty little thing. Some can stomach it. Others can’t. My answer to those reviews: find a woman to co-author with. To be the next pathetic character in my book. Pity she’s so pretty.

Miranda Cross
All I’ve ever wanted was to be successful as a writer so when I was offered the opportunity to co-author a book with my idol, EA Mercer, I jumped at the chance. He’s beautiful and a literary genius, but something about him makes my stomach knot. And maybe it’s my overactive imagination making my hairs stand on end when he walks up behind me.
After all, these wicked little words we’re typing are only fiction. They’re only fiction…

What the heck did I just read?

I need to first start off by saying… this is not my normal read. Yes, I am more known or reading the Dark and Dirty and the Erotic, but I thought hey… It is Stevie J. Cole and BT Urruela, I had to read it. AND I AM SO GLAD I DID!

Now, how to write a review without ruining it… hhhmmm

This is a story about an author, Ethan Allen Mercer, who writes murder mysteries and he is looking for a co-writer to collaborate with him. So he starts a contest with the colleges to have their creative writing classes write a short story to be considered for the position.

So Miranda Cross enters, and the story she writes is one messed up story, and EA Mercer is intrigued. They meet and it was an awkward meeting and Miranda wasn’t sure if she got the job or not, but then gets a notice that she got it, and starts to work with Ethan.

Then… there is a HOT homicide detective working on some current murders that are happening in the town. He is just as messed up as Ethan and Miranda, but he catches the eye of Miranda and they have a drink together. There is a little bit of a “love triangle” even though Miranda has no idea that Ethan has feelings for her.

Things get weird and Miranda gets some strange, creepy feeling about Ethan.

Let me tell you, this is where I have to stop with my review… because it is just a f’d up story, and at times I think…. Should I be worried about the two authors writing this? I mean it is amazingly written and when you get into this story, you don’t want to put it down, because I am like… NO what happens next???

I have never read anything so well written…and so screwed up all in the same time, and there wasn’t much sex in it at all…so you know it had to be good to keep my attention. LOL

BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, Purple Heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books.  He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist.

At an early age, he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother’s bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination.

Upon graduation from high school, his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four-team members badly wounded.

After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state.

Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities.

After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he had always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel ‘A Lover’s Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, ‘Into the Nothing’ and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.

First let me say that this is “Book 2” but it can definitely be read as a standalone. I had not read book 1 and loved this story.

This is a story about Bridget Carter and Conner Black.
Bridget knew Conner from a BDSM club called Eden. They had never been together, but she was very aware of him, and come to find out, he was very aware of her.
Bridget had a child at the age of 16 and gave him up for adoption. She begins to get phone calls from a boy, his name is Alex and is now 14, who is needing her help.

“I think you’re my mother. Please, help me.”

Bridget goes to Conner for help. She figured since he owns Blacklight Securities, he would be a great person to help her find out where this boy is and what is happening to make him call her.

So now that they are working together, and getting to know each other, things change between them personally. They begin to play at the Club.

“It was a zing I had never felt before with any other Dom, and it left me slightly unnerved.”

There is some darkness behind Conner, and you need to find out what makes him sexy.. and what makes him tick.

I loved how the story just seemed to flow… before I knew it, it was over. It kept my interest as to what was going to happen next, and the scenes between Bridget and Conner were super HOT.

So that is where I am going to leave you in this review… if you want to read a story with a good plot, super sexy scenes and some suspense, this story is for you!

Wow, what a quick and sexy read.

I have never read anything by this author, and I really enjoyed this as my first one.
This is a quick love story between Liam, and Irish Alpha Male who wants to live life under the radar. He is an aristocrat and just wants to live a normal life. He gets a job at a local bar in his college town, and little does he know, Charlie is going to change his life on the first day he meets her.

The sparks fly from the very first meeting. Charlie doesn’t seem to believe that love will ever happen for her. Liam does everything he needs to do to win her over.
Does it work? Well, you need to read it to find out.

Liam is someone who I could definitely fall for.. WOW.. he is total swoon worthy.

Excerpt

“I’m not sure how they raise men in your country, but here, you should look a woman in the eye when you speak to her.” Her eyes gleamed with some sort of flirty challenge.

“I apologize,” I growled, discarding the box of bottles at my feet and lunging across the small space between us.

Her hands were in my hair, her thigh hooked around my waist. Now she felt my cock, hard and pounding between us and pressed against the seam of her skirt, the very goddamn place it’d been itching to be all night.

“You’re an Irish bastard,” she said as her teeth nipped at my bottom lip.

My hands clawed at her arse before I hoisted her on my hips and pressed her against the metal shelves behind her.

“Looks like you’ve got a thing for bastards then.”

I nipped at the tender flesh beneath her ear before laving my tongue up the line of her throat. A low whimper fell from her lips and landed a sucker-punch to my balls. My hips worked against her body, my hands roaming her torso and teasing at the neckline of her top.

“Jesus, I want to taste you.” I trailed my tongue across the swell of one breast. Her fingers thrust in my hair as a tremor pulsed through her body. “I want to see what you’re wearing under this hot little skirt.”

I fisted at the tight skirt, desperate to shove my hand beneath her panties and coax that soft, wet pussy to an orgasm with my fingers. And then my tongue. God, how my tongue ached to taste every inch of that perfection. I was going mad with the thoughts of how she would taste.

My hand found its way beneath the elastic of her panties, my fingers soaked instantly by her silky juices. I nearly came in my pants from just a single touch. I slid another finger through her hot lips and circled her clit slowly with my thumb. Breaths shuddered out of her body, her nipples hardening even further. Without a second thought, I pulled the low neckline of her top down, the creamy round flesh of her breast spilling out of the cup of her bra. I tugged the lace out of my way with my teeth, and finally, my lips attached to the dusky pink bud. I drew out the delicate flesh in slow, torturous sucks.

Soft mewls fell past her perfect pink lips as I worked her soft body. I couldn’t wait to hear her come, my name biting past her lips as I pushed her to a mind-blowing orgasm.

“Christ, you feel this good in my hands. I can’t wait to taste this sweet pussy.”

“Irish,” she sighed, her eyes falling closed when I pressed my thumb to the bud of her clit, applying pressure until her nails cut into the skin at my shoulder and her head fell back against a box.

“Name’s Liam, beautiful, and I can’t wait to hear you scream it from the rooftops.”
