Wow! This story was the mafia romance I didn’t know I needed! In a male dominated world, Catarina AKA Donna Conti was a strong, ruthless badass. I was impressed with her thirst for vengeance and one hundred percent on board with her sneaky ways. But then I met Massimo Greco and that playboy Mafia prince stole my heart. I loved their meet cute, reunion and the slow burn to trusting one another with their hidden secrets. Their tragic backstory brought the two together…like fate. Swoon!!!!! The book was entertaining, suspenseful and held a few unpredictable twists. AND we got reunited with the Big Boss Bennett Mazzone. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Can’t go wrong with some Bennett action. Definitely happy I read this one!

Excerpt

Lust blazes in his eyes. “I will wait for you to come to me.”

“You’ll be waiting,” I blurt, irritated when amusement skates across his face. I hate how he can obviously tell it’s a lie. He can see I’m floundering. That his want is not one-sided.

“I have a hand, and my blue balls can be patient.” A teasing smile spreads across his mouth, and I’m ensnared. Massimo is truly beautiful, and I only hope I’m strong enough to resist. I already suspect I’m not. “To a point,” he whispers against my ear, sending warm shivers coursing along my flesh. I squirm on his lap, failing to ignore the hard, thick length pulsing underneath me.

Massimo groans, and his eyes darken with undeniable desire. “You were put on this earth to test me. I’m sure of it.”

I can’t smother my smile in time.

“One kiss,” he says, his eyes dropping to my mouth as his tongue darts out and he wets his lips. “Would you deny your husband a kiss on his wedding night?”

“I have kissed you today.”

He shakes his head as his fingers sweep back and forth across my mouth, making it harder and harder to resist temptation. “I have kissed you. You have gone along with it because it was expected.”

He’s as delusional as me if he truly believes that. I drive my hands into his hair without even thinking about it. “Will everything be a negotiation between us?”

His brows climb to his hairline and a devilish grin widens his lush mouth. “Do we know any other way to be?”

“One kiss. Just one kiss.” The words feel like lies as I spout them.

“That is all I am asking.” He closes his eyes, moaning softly as my fingers explore the thick strands of his black hair. “That feels so incredibly good.”

I brush my mouth against his, and his eyes pop wide. His hands flatten against my back, pushing me in closer to his tempting body. I can indulge in one kiss. It is my wedding night after all, and my husband is one of the sexiest men alive. It’s not wrong to take this one thing for myself, right? “Just one kiss,” I remind him as our breaths comingle.

“Only one.”

Closing my eyes, I lower my mouth to his and descend into sheer bliss. He lets me control it, at first, and I’m surprised at the potent need driving me to take everything as I prod at the seam of his lips with my tongue. He opens instantly, letting my tongue plunge inside his mouth. I reposition myself on his lap, straddling his hips, so I can properly kiss him, and it’s that moment when all bets are off.

Whoa! My emotions were flying all over the place at that ending. If you’re looking for a new crazy Bully Romance with a kickass broken heroine to sink your teeth into, look no further. So many secrets and brutal family ties bubbling up out of the woodwork in this dark story. Fergie is getting a fresh start after some severe trauma but things aren’t all roses in her new step family. She has a step-monster for a brother, Cassius. His best friend Victor who is king of Stonehurst Prep. And a quirky artist Torsten rounds out the trio. They are supposed to watch over her but mostly torment her by teasing her desires and throwing her to the wolves aka her classmates. This story was an addictive page turner with lots of twists, gaspworthy moments, mystery and violence…let’s not forget the violence. The guys will have you loving and hating them and I’m not quite sure where I’ve left off on that scale. I can’t even fathom how I’m going to survive until the next book. I think I’m still in shock.

Wicked Flame by Ella Frank ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review!

He’s ready to steal his heart and never give it back.

Wicked Flame, a sizzling MM romance and the hot conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is out now!

Jameson

Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan

Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

I really loved Jameson and Ryan’s journey to happily ever after. There were enough twists and emotional growth to captivate my interest. Extremely steamy scenes. Some heart tugging revelations. And the perfect duet story length. All of it spoke to my MM Romance addiction and satisfied it to the max. These characters are so compelling and every little bite we get in this Chicagoverse makes me a little giddy. I never devour a book quite so quickly as an Ella Frank story. Every single time I’m like oh…I’m finished? But…but…I have to say…I always have a big ol’ smile on my face.

Alexei by Eva Winners ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

Alexei by Eva Winners is now live!

Alexei Nikolaev.
Blessed with the face of Adonis. 
Cursed with eyes colder than the Artic and a past he can’t escape. 

His history is as tragic as a Dostoyevsky tale.

When I’m forced to work with him, fire ignites and things spiral out of control. Despite the desire felt from his mouthwatering body, covered in tattoos, distrust between us is deep. 

But unless we learn to work together and trust each other, we’re both as good as dead.

This was an amazing story. A story of a lost soul…Alexei Nikolaev and Aurora Ashford. Aurora is an FBI agent and one tough cookie. I love a strong character. She is forced to work with Alexei out in the field. Alexei is a bad guy but the world needs to find a Russian mobster. With Aurora’s resources and Alexei’s knowledge, they would be good together. Well…the first time they are together…they are going to a sex club. Because the person who owns it is one step closer to who they are looking for. Let me just tell you…This Story Is HOT AS HELL (FIREEEEEEE). I love the connection and the banter in this romance. Aurora can take it and dish it out. She is good for Alexei who has a dark past. This kind of reminds me of “Beauty and the Beast”. So good…So So Good!!!

See Me by Stacey Kennedy ~ Blog Tour w/ Review & Excerpt

She’s the one.
And he’s not giving up without a fight.

SEE ME, an all-new white hot standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy, is out now!

In the Phoenix club, fantasies come to life, but he wants her for real, and he’ll do anything to prove it in this deliciously sexy romance.

Lottie Harlow spends her days as a dog walker and her nights losing herself in wild fantasies at Phoenix, a members-only, voyeuristic sex club in New York City. Her anonymous existence is precisely planned. She must lay low, or risk facing the consequences of her family’s criminal past. She’s a ghost, and she likes it that way. But detective Hunt Walker is determined to uncover her secrets…

Hunt has always loved his nights at Phoenix, but they’re no longer enough. He wants more. He wants a relationship. He wants Lottie. He’s wanted her for years. The only problem? Lottie keeps him at a careful distance, never letting him get too close, ignoring the sizzling heat burning between them. He knows she’s intrigued by him, but she’s scared. He just can’t figure out why… But when enemies from her past come seeking revenge for her family’s deal gone wrong, Lottie’s secrets are revealed, and so is the explosive passion they’ve been fighting.

Soon, lust leads the way to love, but when Lottie’s brothers start threatening her, the line between right and wrong is blurred. Hunt becomes torn between his duty to his badge and his need to keep Lottie safe. But he’ll only get one chance to prove to Lottie that she’s worth fighting for… and that their love is worth the risk.

This story was a little tough for me. Lottie and Hunt are two members of Club Phoenix, which on the outside it looks like a cigar lounge, and deep inside is a sex club. Well…there isn’t much time in the sex club which disappointed me. For those who know me, I love my stories DIRTY! This story has some filthy tidbits of dirty, but it is more mystery to me. This was a well written story and the author knew what she is doing. Lottie (Marissa) has a past that she is running from. She wants nothing to do with Hunt, a cop in town. She knows her past could hurt him. After seven years, events finally comes back to haunt her. Hunt is there to help her. He winds up in jail and everything Lottie was worried about comes true. It was a little rushed in certain spots for me, and not enough naughty. It was good but I would say if you are looking for naughty sex club story, this one isn’t it.

Read an excerpt below!

“Tell me who you think broke into your condo,” he said firmly.

She shook her head, forcing her shoulders back. “I don’t know.” She knew better than to totally write off her family, but she couldn’t think up a good enough reason why they’d break into her condo after all this time. Plus, she had paid a lot of money to ensure she was never found. For the first couple of years she’d been in New York City, she’d always looked over her shoulder, worried they’d catch up with her, demanding the money she’d stolen. But no one ever came. After the third year, she stopped looking, feeling safe in her new identity.

Hunt dipped his chin, bringing his eye level down to hers. “No idea at all who it could be?”

“Nope,” she said, striding off before he could look too deep and find answers that she couldn’t give him.

She felt his gaze following her, reading right through all the things she wasn’t telling him.

When he finally caught up with her on the way back to her condo, he blessedly shifted subjects. “Come stay with me until we catch the person responsible,” he offered.

Cars honked at each other as she shook her head adamantly. “Like hell they’re making me afraid of my own home.”

“Then I’ll take your couch. It’s not safe, Lottie.” When they stopped at the corner of the street and waited for the light to change, he arched an eyebrow. “I have a gun. You do not.”

“Good point,” she said. This spelled all kinds of dangerous, but Hunt would not relent, and she refused to leave her condo. “Okay, you’re right; it’s safer,” she conceded, knowing her limitations in protecting herself if someone broke in again. “I appreciate the offer.”

“Think nothing of it,” he said and began crossing the street. “We can grab my overnight bag before we go back to your place.”

All of this seemed unnecessary, but she realized as she inhaled the greasy aroma coming from the hot dog stand, that for the first time since she opened her condo’s door earlier, she could breathe a little easier.

When they arrived at the condo a half an hour later, the forensic unit was packing up. She sighed as she took in the state of the place. What a mess! Figuring she had to start somewhere, she moved to the living room, picked up the cushions off the floor, and placed them back on the couch.

After a short conversation, Hunt shut the front door behind the last cop and locked it. He moved to the liquor cabinet in the corner of her living room and poured them both a double shot of whiskey. He handed her the glass and watched her with a stern look, his well-crafted cop look. “Time’s up, Lottie.”

“I’m not sure what you mean.” She sipped her whiskey. A big, long sip.

His mouth twitched, but that was the only break in his intensity. “I rather enjoy when you make me work to know you. But I’m afraid, like I already said, time is up. Tell me what you’re hiding.”

She swallowed. Part of her wanted to tell him everything. Explain her entire past. But if Hunt knew about her past life as Marissa Ricci, and that she’d had her true identity buried, he’d have to tell Rhys. Then Archer would learn that she’d lied to them. She’d never be allowed back in Phoenix. She loved her new life, and that included her sensual life in Phoenix, and her friends who also belonged.

The air seemed too thin as Hunt took another step closer, erasing the distance between them. “I know there’s a reason you have refused, from day one, to not act on what’s between us. And I know that reason is tied to your break-in today.”

She looked to her glass, avoiding his penetrating stare. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

His fingers dragged against her jawline before he cupped her chin, forcing her to meet the strength in his gaze. “Let me help you.”

She needed to shut this down. Now. Hunt was too smart, too insightful, too damn trained. Her heart began to hammer, making the room feel smaller and smaller. He’d peel all her layers back and expose all her secrets. She couldn’t allow that.

“Lottie,” he said, a pillar of strength.

Suddenly it occurred to her she knew exactly how to distract him. Ignoring the consequences, she placed her glass on the table and grabbed his shirt, pulling him closer. Before she could second-guess herself, she sealed her lips on his. He stiffened, seemly momentarily surprised, until he softened, wrapping his arms around her, bringing her tight against him with a low groan.

Her lips opened, and his followed, but he never quite gave her the kiss she suddenly, desperately needed.

When he broke away a few minutes later, he chuckled against her lips. “Shutting me up, huh? All right, Lottie, I’ll go along with that.” His hands fell to her hips, and he gave her a push until her back hit the wall. She gasped. Need stormed through her as his eyes darkened with arousal. “For now.”

Frenzied thoughts filled her mind as his mouth met hers again, but when he took over the kiss, her thoughts simply faded into nothingness.

She parted her mouth, and his tongue invaded, sliding against hers. His kiss was skilled, determined, and left her dripping. She slid her hands over his strong, flexing arms, shoulders, up his thick neck to the back of his head, running her fingers across the shaved hair.

He groaned, breaking the kiss so his lips could travel along her neck. His hand threaded in her hair, and she rolled her hips, heat pooling low in her body. His tongue flicked her ear lobe, and she moaned, a tease of how that tongue would feel elsewhere. “Can I touch you?” His breath tickled across her ear.

The game was dangerous. And yet, and yet…she couldn’t stop from playing now that she felt him…tasted him. “Yes.”
