A struggling single mom gets caught up in the web of a notorious Casanova who likes to play games.

When Clara Scott signs up for the Player’s Game, she does it only for the money. As a struggling single mom, she needs the extra cash.

Colton Rossi is beautiful, but he’s also a notorious player. Women swoon all over him. Yet Clara’s not interested in the least in a Casanova like him, nor does she have time in her life for romance.

She knows she can’t get tangled up in his games. She needs to look out for herself, and her small son too. As intoxicating as he is, she vows to pull herself away from him, but when he makes her an offer she can’t refuse, she’s drawn in further despite her best intentions.

Will her preconceptions be confirmed, or is there more to Colton Rossi than meets the eye?

WICKED PLAYER contains some coarse language and sexual scenes. For 18+ audiences.

A sweet romance that had a tiny bit of a slow burn going on in it. Loved the premise of this story. Clara Scott is a single introverted mom who is a bit insecure with her looks. She goes out of her comfort zone to attend the Player’s Game at Colton Rossi’s mansion. Colton has a bit of a reputation of being a player and invites a selected group of women once a month to his exclusive mansion for a dinner party. I really liked that Clara didn’t want to feel like a Bachelor contestant vying for Colton’s attention. She has a son who is her main focus and doesn’t have time to worry whether she’s going to get Colton’s “rose” or whatever else he wants to hand over. Her character was pretty strong, admirable and protective of her heart and her son. Colton…I really liked him as well. He was more than a manwhore sleeping his way through the town’s eligible women. I loved how persistent he was and sometimes wanted to shake him to get a clue. A solid entertaining romance and I didn’t find it SUPER steamy but it was definitely hot enough to keep my attention and make me smile at the end.

Praise

The Smutbarians – “A sweet romance that had a tiny bit of a slow burn going on in it. Loved the premise of this story.”

Goodreads Review – “I absolutely LOVED this story!”

Excerpt

“Would you like to stay?” he asks kindly.

“Uh…” I’m completely speechless. “Well, I was just about to board the bus. I can’t miss the bus.”

He smiles. “Don’t worry,” he says. “The bus will wait while you make your decision.”

“I don’t want to leave all these girls hanging,” I argue. I’m certainly not making things easy. I just didn’t expect this.

“You can stay as early or as late as you wish,” he goes on. “My driver can take you home.”

“Your driver?” Once again, I’m reminded just how far apart our worlds are.

“Yes, Robert… he lives in the guest house,” he explains. “He’s my go-to guy. He also drives for me occasionally.”

“Uh…” I’m still so confused. I stare at the bus. Everyone else is already seated inside, and a few shoot me dirty looks. I’m keeping everyone waiting.

“I know we don’t know each other well, but that’s exactly why I want you to stay back… I want to get to know you better. And I promise… I’ll be a perfect gentleman.”

I’m so confused… and it finally hits me. Oh, yes. He picks a woman every night. And apparently, I’m the lucky one tonight. I must be something special.

But that’s not what I signed up for. I have no desire to be part of his harem, and I don’t want to be the chosen one.

“So I guess I’m the ‘chosen one,’” I sneer. 

He smiles. “Yes, you are. You ladies like to chat, don’t you?”

“Of course we do,” I snap. “And I know all about the chosen one, and I do not wish to be the chosen one.”

He laughs. “Well, sorry honey, but you are.”

His words only make me angrier. I jut my chin out. “Thank you, but I decline.”

His face falls.

“I bet this never happens,” I say. “Maybe Mr. Most Interesting Man in the World is not so interesting after all.”

He laughs. “You crack me up,” he says. “I think that’s why I like you.”

“Yes, that must be why, because I certainly don’t stack up to all the beauties sitting in the bus, waiting for me right now. It’s like Top Model at your parties… remember that show?”

He smiles. “No, I’ve never watched.”

“Well, I don’t wanna be here, so I’m getting on that bus. I don’t care if you paid me a thousand dollars to be here tonight. I wish to not be here anymore.”

He shakes his head, an inches closer. Damn, he smells good, like liqueur and candy. “Are you sure about that?”

“Yes, I am. Positive.”

“What if…” he’s slow to say. “What if I made it ten grand to stay the night?”

My mouth hangs. Did I hear him correctly? Ten grand? He’s crazy! I’m still at a loss when he says it again, just in case I didn’t hear him the first time, “Ten grand to stay the night.”

“Wow, how so Indecent Proposal of you. Can you make it one million?”

He laughs. “Well, that’s a bit rich, even for me. But I’m sure you’d be worth every penny. Alas, ten grand is my final offer. Take it or leave it.”

Ten grand could do so much for Christian and I. But it’s the principle of the thing. I would, in essence, be prostituting myself.

“Still no,” I tell him. “I am opposed to this whole thing on principle. I am not a high class escort.”

“Yes, of course not,” he says. “But what if I told you there is no expectation of sex or anything of a sexual nature.”

I ponder this new information for a second. “So let’s review this proposal… you would pay me ten thousand dollars just to watch me fall asleep, because that’s what I’ll be doing very shortly.”

To Break A Devil by Lilah E. Noir ~ Release Blitz w/ Playlist, Excerpt & Giveaway!

Title: To Break A Devil
Author: Lilah E. Noir
Genre: Dark Bully Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2021

BLURB

She humiliated me eight years ago.
Now, she will pay for her sins.

Sage Phoenix was the bane of my existence. That tattooed tease with a short skirt and body made for sin drove me crazy from the moment I met her.

I loathed her, and yet she woke up my deepest, most shameful carnal desires.

I had a mind of logic and order until she turned the tables on me and left me behind, broken and in disgrace.

It’s a hot summer night in the city when our paths cross again.
I’m no longer the boy she seduced in high school. I grew smarter, stronger… and I have all the tools to break her.

She pushed me way too far. Once we’re all alone in her rundown tattoo parlor, Sage will have no choice but to submit to my revenge.

There is just one problem… I’m still crazy for her.

Can I resist her? Who will win the ultimate battle of wills?

This is a standalone novella with HFN, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. It’s a dark tale and a twisted second chance love story of two former high school enemies. 

The book contains steamy situations, scenes of violence and is intended for a mature audience. It is not a safe story. 

All the characters are over 18 years old.

Author’s Note: The story was originally published in 2016 under the name The Brat With The Phoenix Tattoo. It’s the same story, only with improved editing and a new title.

I would definitely heed the warning on this novella. I read a lot of dark or BDSM or bully romance. To me…there was nothing romantic about this story. I would more categorize this story as dub-consensual BDSM revenge erotica. Paul is a bit unstable and obsessed with payback against a bratty, artsy girl named Sage that he tutored in high school. If you like that type of erotica, this is a dark, titillating dubious-consent, punish the bratty girl by using BDSM elements tale. But for me…there was no romance…dark or otherwise. I found the short story entertaining for the category I mentioned.

PLAYLIST

EXCERPT

Sage was right where I wanted her.

My little victim found her voice and uttered with her seductive purr. Poor thing.

“It would have lasted if you had lasted, too, Paul. It’s not my fault you came fast.” Sage had her typical wicked smile, but she was unraveling. Her lips were wide open for a kiss, her nipples were hard as pebbles and she was raising her hips to grind them against my crotch.

Perfect.

She gasped loud in protest when I crushed my lips against hers, bit them to the bleeding point and forced her to open her mouth. I pushed my tongue in and rubbed it against hers. Muffled moans escaped her lips. Sage struggled and writhed under me but wasn’t trying hard enough to release herself. My hands found themselves on her tender, pulsing throat and I sank my nails in the back of her soft neck until she screamed. I was bruising her delicate skin. It wouldn’t take a lot to crush her, break her windpipe and catch the last breaths of her life in my mouth. Instead, I grasped her hard enough to hurt and bruise her. I deprived her of air and controlled how much she’d get as I was devouring her, sating my hunger for the taste of an untamed, captivating creature. All her sounds drowned in my rough kiss. At first, she responded with the same painful lust by sinking her teeth in my tongue and fighting for control. The lack of oxygen and my power over her took their toll, and I assumed the top position.

She tasted just like I always thought, sweet and spicy. The mild taste of whiskey on her tongue just made me go wilder and kiss her in a more ferocious way. I sucked her tongue into my mouth and breathed some air in her, thrilled to be necessary for her survival. 

When Sage grew weak in my arms, I hurried to remove my fingers off her neck and slid them down her firm breasts. It amazed me how hard her nipples were, like two little pieces of rock I’d soon torture, just like the rest of her sensual body. That little witch needed to learn her place. She wouldn’t have any say in what would happen to her, that I’d have no qualms in taking her and treating her like my private toy. Sage would be my whore tonight. 

I played with her tender tits and drank in what I’ve longed for all these years. Then, with one smooth and precise movement I ripped her tank top open, shredding it to strips of ruined fabric. The kiss was intense enough to make my head spin. That was the perfect moment to release her luscious, roughened and bleeding lips and let her scream out.

EARLY REVIEWS FOR TO BREAK A DEVIL

★★★★★ This is a very dark and sizzling story which is basically a revenge scene that had been building for years. Well-written, well-edited, page-turner steamy story.

★★★★★ “Thoroughly enjoyed this book and really didn’t want it to end. Love the chemistry and feistiness. What an ending!”

★★★★★ “The undeniable attraction between the two. It is like fighting fire with fire.”

★★★★★ “Sage and Paul’s story was purely steamy and dirty! I loved every dark and twisted minute of this book. This book was so steamy and dirty I had to take breaks it was that good.”

★★★★ “I was pleasantly surprised by this novella’s character development and original plot, and would recommend it, particularly to anyone who is into BDSM.”

★★★★ “Straight up exactly what I want when I want dark bully/erotica. If you’re looking for a book to work you up with dark and to let your body enjoy the fruits of intense se* that makes you feel like you ran 50 miles than you are going to enjoy Paul and Sage.”

Falling for the Villain by M. Robinson & Rachel Van Dyken ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone dark romance novel.

“Play for me, Juliet…”

Those four words whispered in my ear again and again until I craved what I used to fear.
Such a simple demand from my captor—the man who stole me and refused to tell me why he wouldn’t let me go.

I was his.

He made me need him, just as much as he needed me.
I broke all the rules of the golden prison he put me in.  

During the day he ruled his dark, seedy world.
His subjects and me.

During the night—he bowed before my feet.  

Have you ever wondered what happened to the villains in all the fairy tales you read?
You’ll soon find out.

It all started when he kidnapped me and made me his pet.
And it all ended with me…

Calling him master.    

*This story is not for the faint of heart and may be uncomfortable for some readers. But, then again, stepping outside of your comfort zone may be exactly the thing you need…

This was a dark, twisted, angsty book for sure. Donovan is a sadist that trains women to be pets for wealthy and sometimes depraved men. His past is broken and shaped him into what he is today. Juliet is a sassy piano player and daughter of a mob boss. Donovan knows immediately he has to have her and kidnaps her. He tries to break her to build her back into what he wants. At times, I felt torn about this because it seemed to be more about punishment than anything else and Stockholm Syndrome definitely starts to set in. This plot in the story saddened me because Juliet is such a strong woman but has been broken so badly by Donovan it’s hard to watch at times.

Between past traumas and feelings cropping up, this story had angst, suspense, twists and was insanely dark. There were many sexy scenes with some cringeworthy. I wanted them to have genuine feelings for each other but I had a hard time with Donovan. He does try to redeem himself but I’m not sure if it’s enough to make me his fan. This one left me with some mixed feelings at the end!

HOLY COW! This author leaves me wanting more…

This is book two, and book one left me hanging and desperately wanting more. Book two gave me so much more…but still left me hanging. I don’t know how she does it, but she’s good at it. The drama continues to happen between Beau and Jane. The HOTNESS also continues. Beau asks Jane not to leave him. Paige, the little girl Jane is nannying for, has become close to Jane as well. Things begin to happen that put Jane in danger. The detective has thrown out some suspicion Jane could possibly be the one who set the house fire.

There are SO many unanswered questions that I can’t wait to see how this all plays out. I have never cheered for a couple more than I have cheered for Jane to find her prince charming in Beau. But from what it is looking like right now…that may not happen.

EXCERPT

“Let me guess,” she says, her voice quivering. “It’s not me, it’s you.”

“Correct.” It’s not her. She’s beautiful and smart and kind. She has a whole life ahead of her. Meanwhile I’m a selfish bastard who used her. The fire was a disaster in ten different ways, but there is one small, shining upside. It was also a wake-up call that I desperately needed.

She manages a wry, watery smile. “Don’t worry, Beau. I hear you loud and clear. And I respect your boundaries. I’m not going to take advantage of you.”

Oh the fucking irony. And worse, she knows it. She knows that I was using her. It’s a little joke at my expense, and I deserve it. What can I say to that sharp awareness? What can I do but fall to my knees and beg her forgiveness? I won’t be able to last a day without her in my arms. I won’t be able to watch her without wanting her.

“Jane. I’m dangerous to you. Look at what happened to Emily. Now look at you, almost burned to a crisp in a fire, small and fragile in a hospital bed—because of me.” Her brow furrows, and I know she means to argue with me. “God, I’m not even good for Paige. You know it. You said it yourself. I snap at her. I argue with her. I’m the problem here.”

Her eyes fill with tears. “You love me. You said you love me.”

It would be better to deny it, to claim I didn’t mean it, but I can’t quite bring myself to lie to her that way. “It doesn’t matter. My love is dangerous.”

Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.

Rich. Handsome. Bastard.

Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him.

Not me.

At least, not until he made a move on me.

I thought I could survive being his target.

Wow…this book! So many layers to these characters that gradually get peeled away one by one and each one is an eye-opener! Sebastian is the popular, hot, star college quarterback that is used to getting his way in more ways then one. His family has political ties so he must toe the line and behave. Things are expected of him and what he wants really doesn’t matter.

Naomi has had a crush on Sebastian since high school but he pays no attention to her. She is reluctantly a cheerleader because her mother pushes her hard to fit in. Her mother is fashion designer and she doesn’t know who her father is. She also has a “mysterious” pen pal with back and forth letters. I have my suspicions about who this person is.

Sebastian takes a bet…to have sex with Naomi by a group of girls that torment her. But we learn that Naomi may not have been as invisible to Sebastian as she thinks all these years. Once these two make contact, there are fireworks! And they seem to have more than a few things in common. Things that allow Sebastian to be his true kinky self. There are some pretty heavy sexy scenes and more than one twist with family secrets being pushed to the surface. This story ends with a pretty big holy crap moment. Looking forward to the next book!
