Wrecked by Jessica Blake

This was a super good read! Grace is the epitome of spoiled D-list celebrity when her world falls apart and Daddy's money disappears. She's sent to live with her uncle and aunt in the boonies. When she gets there, she meets Luke, a caring and hunky philanthropist who is from a very well off family. She decides she'll lure him in because of his money but things happen very differently than what she imagined. 

The characters were well developed, even if it did take awhile for Grace to become someone I liked. Luke was hot from the get go and so compassionate, except where Grace was concerned. Smart man! You won't be disappointed.


Synopsis:
After her family's megalithic pet store chain goes under, Grace Silva's plush life in L.A. is turned upside down. Now too ashamed to be seen running to catch the bus (instead of being driven by the family's chauffeur), Grace books it out of Cali and heads for Crystal Brook, North Carolina. Without her trusty posse and plentiful opportunities to party, Grace finds herself at a loss living with her aunt and uncle. Crystal Brook is cozy. It's friendly. It's peaceful... And Grace hates it.

The only good thing the town has going for it is the hot and rumored wealthy hunk living down the street. Seeing a possible way out of her fall into the 'common life' (as her friends deem it), Grace does everything she can to catch Luke Anderson's eye, but not even her trustiest tricks seem to work. Scrambling to find an avenue, she begins volunteering at the local food pantry where Luke spends much of his time. Forced to come face to face with the kind of circumstances she's never even imagined, Grace begins to see that the seemingly impossible task of getting the guy is just the beginning of her long journey towards something better.

Only For the Night by Ella Sheridan


WOW!!!! Hank is H.O.T. This book seriously gave me heart palpitations. The fire between Sage and Hank was literally smoking. It was refreshing to see Hank's reticence in being a Dom with everything he had seen previously, but just as refreshing to see Sage's strength in trying to deny that part of herself because of her experience. Most stories just see both people jump head first with zero information and knowledge. This was definitely a book that was well-written, well-informed, and a super good read!!


Synopsis: She needs a Dom with heart. He sees the lifestyle as heartless. Can a brave submissive show a rock star that accepting his true nature will be nirvana for both of them? Letting go with her may help him put the pieces of himself—and his band—back together again.

 Struggling with the death of her mother, Sage Lyndsey turned to her Dom for comfort, but his impatience led to a humiliating scene in front of their club. Devastated, she runs to a small town on the Cali coast. Buying into Citrus Pointe’s bakery may be her best decision ever—if she can overcome the embarrassment of having her new landlord’s dog steal her towel right in front of him. It gets worse when she realizes he’s none other than rock bassist Hank Nash, and despite the problems it would cause, she wants nothing more than his talented hands on her, bending her to his will. Hank is an ex-cop who knows all too well what dominance looks like when it turns to abuse—he saw the consequences on another cop’s wife. After turning the man in, Hank left that life behind to start a rock band, Weekend Washout. Now he’s fighting to keep the band together, and to deny his urge to dominate pretty, spunky Sage. But when Sage’s ex-Dom reappears, Hank is forced into a life-changing decision: Accept both their needs and gain more than one night with Sage, or retreat to the safe life he’s built so carefully.

Excerpt: “Who are you?” Her voice was low, as angry as her eyes despite the uncertainty that rasped through her words. She wasn’t backing down, that was for sure. Her bravado sent a tingle through his belly—and lower. That old urge, to hunt, to conquer, rose with other parts of his anatomy. Dangerous. Wrong. Hank fought it down, breathed through it, but before he found the control to answer, Knight decided he wanted to play some more. He jerked at the towel. The material slipped lower, forcing the woman to tighten her grip or lose the covering altogether. The adjustment pushed the rounded globe of her breast higher. How much farther before he could see her nipple? He shook his head. Why was he thinking about breasts when there was a strange woman in his home? He dug his fists into his pockets, hoping to obscure the unexpected effect she was having on him. “Since this is my apartment, I think my question comes first.” Confusion filtered across those lovely features. The woman stepped back, only to be brought up short by Knight’s unyielding grip. “You’re Hank?” Knight wanted to continue the game. He growled, giving the towel a hard shake like he’d nabbed a rabbit by the neck instead of a length of terry cloth. The move yanked the woman forward. She stumbled, panic sparking in her eyes. “Aren’t you going to call him off?” “Why?” he asked, barely managing to hold back his laughter. After a long, boring night driving and the news he’d just been hit with, he had to admit he was enjoying this little surprise. Knight was playing; Hank knew it even if the woman hadn’t figured it out yet, and he couldn’t resist playing with her a bit himself. “We have an intruder. He’s just doing his job.” She shook her head wildly. “I’m not an intruder. I live here.” She pulled on the towel. Knight dug in his paws, not giving an inch. “I—” Knight faked her out with a sudden lunge forward. The woman stumbled back, trying to avoid what looked like an attack. Knight took advantage and snatched the fabric out of her hands. Away from her body. Hank’s dick went tighter than his bass strings. He had no more than a half count to imprint the sight in his mind. It was all he needed. Full, round, high breasts with tender pink nipples drawn up tight. A smooth expanse of stomach begging to be explored, with just the right amount of inward curve at her waist to give him a place to grip. Hips wide enough to cradle him perfectly against the sparse patch of dark hair between her legs. Christ, she looked sweet, sweet enough to eat. And mortified. A bright red blush flared across her cheeks. The woman slapped a hand across her breasts, obscuring his view, and then, quick as the rabbit Knight had pretended to play with, she whirled away. He got an all too brief glimpse of her ass as she fled down the hall, the bounce of the perfect globes sending a second slam of blood to his already full erection. The crash of the guest bedroom door echoed around him as he hunched against the pain with a rough—very rough—laugh. Oblivious to the drama he’d caused, Knight settled onto his belly there in the middle of the hall, happily munching away on his prize. Hank opened his mouth to reprimand the dog, to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all, maybe to call the woman’s name—only to realize he still had no clue who the stranger in his house actually was. And he had to know, because da-yam, that body. That ass. Those eyes. Maybe he wasn’t as tired as he’d thought he was.

After earning a BA in English Literature, I married and started a family. But the worlds and characters that swirled through my mind just wouldn’t go away, and at a particularly difficult time in my life, I picked up pen and paper (or laptop) and tried to release some of that difficulty onto the page. I’ve been writing ever since. Now I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, run an accountability blog to help writers reach their goals, and am pursuing publication with the same passion I feel for writing. Nothing pleases me more than sharing the stories of my heart with you, the reader, and I hope, in some small way, these stories will touch your heart too.

Revealed by Samyah Leighton

This book was amazing!!! I will clarify that I haven't read book 1 which I needed to. It didn't affect my ability to understand the story, but having the backstory up front rather than through flashbacks would've been helpful. Skylar and Jackson's relationship was amazing! I loved seeing the progression over the course of the book/years. The passion emanated even from the pages. Obviously, Chris was my less than favorite character, but at times, you could see why Skylar had an almost Stockholm syndrome about him. You could decipher his charisma and genuine feelings for her, which made what he did so hard to bear. Jackson was hot, although quite honestly, a little too immature throughout a good portion of the story. I get why he was so angry and distrustful, but at some point, you have to grow up and let it go. Sleeping with everything that walks is disgusting and you can't use the excuse that you're hurt. Who hasn't been? All in all, this story is fantastic and I am on pins and needles for the next one!!!!

Boss by Sierra Cartwright

Smokin'!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The sexual chemistry between Nathan and Kelsey is off the charts. I like that it wasn't the traditional relationship and that she initially wanted zip to do with him. Having a Dom tell you "this is how it's going to be" in a book is rare....most Dom's in books aren't the same as IRL Dom's. Ms. Cartwright hit it out of the ballpark with this one!
Synopsis: His erotic demands test everything she believes. When the fearless, larger-than-life Nathan Donovan becomes her boss, Kelsey Lane’s life is turned upside down. The multimillionaire wants her by his side, but his demands don’t end there. Kelsey avoids romantic entanglements, especially with overwhelmingly dynamic men like Nathan. But she quickly discovers his attention and sensual desires ignite something deep inside her, leading her on a journey that tests everything she believes. The youngest, boldest of the dynamic Donovan brothers, Nathan is accustomed to getting what he wants. And he focuses his attention on the smart, sexy Kelsey. He quickly discovers she’s unlike any woman he’s ever known. She meets him, desire for desire, getting deep inside him, destroying the barriers he keeps around his heart. He wonders, though, if she’s willing to give him the one thing he demands… Buy Links: Amazon US: http://amzn.to/1ZJdyh7 Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/1MOzRZu iBooks: http://apple.co/1O4Sme8 B&N: http://bit.ly/1YZrscO Kobo: http://bit.ly/1YHRKB3 ARe: http://bit.ly/1VBayUu Books in the Series: Bind Amazon US: http://amzn.to/1R9BuJA Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/1P9YqC4 iBooks: apple.co/1GmR35C B&N: bit.ly/1RV3D4f Kobo: http://bit.ly/1mtuRF6 ARe: http://bit.ly/1WGrd8J Brand Amazon US: http://amzn.to/1ZJdttV Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/1NZgGjK iBooks: http://apple.co/1KlL3km B&N: http://bit.ly/1K7XImZ Kobo: http://bit.ly/1O4SAlw ARe: http://bit.ly/1HYwYde About Author: Winner of the 2013 Best BDSM Book of the Year award (Over The Line), the 2014 LASR Book of the Year award (In The Den), and the 2015 Golden Flogger (Crave), Sierra was born in Manchester, England where she spent her early years traipsing through castles.

Wolf's Blade and Merry "Chris" Mas by Clare Dargin

Passion's Magic by Eden Bradley


Synopsis:
Molly Duncan, forty-one, has come to Passion Lake for three things. A new job. A new life. And a new Dom. Her Dom husband has been dead for four years and she desperately wants the closeness of a loving D/s relationship. So she accepts a job at the Passion Lake library and buys an old semi-run-down farm suitable for boarding horses. Horses were a huge part of her life growing up, until she met and married Tom and entered his world of BDSM. Now she hopes to combine both of her passions.

Enter Jared Thompkins, seven-time World All-Around Rodeo Champion and circuit heart-throb. His career ended by injury at age twenty-eight, he’s ready to settle down and find a submissive of his own. A woman he can love and cherish and dominate the hell out of. On the recommendation of his older brother Mitch, he applies for the position of stable manager.

Molly sees a handsome, cocky, young cowboy with a swagger for a walk and a panty-melting grin. Jared sees a lusty, voluptuous, mature blond who’s ready for what he can give her.

The attraction between them is instantaneous and explosive. Each is exactly what the other has been seeking. Now all Jared has to do is prove to a wary Molly that it’s not just sex. He’s in it for the long haul. And a thirteen-year age difference is not the insurmountable obstacle she seems to think it is.

About the Author:
Julie Shelton is 73 years old, a retired storyteller/puppeteer. She loves reading and writing, ballet, pistachio ice cream, the mountains, Medieval illuminated manuscripts, Classical music. 80’s rock ballads, and violets.

She hates hypocrisy, intolerance, liver, and sushi.

If she were a tree, she would be a live oak because it lasts for hundreds of years, it doesn’t shed its leaves in the winter, and it’s great for climbing and hanging swings from.

If she were a piece of music…hmmm, that’s a bit tougher. She’d either be Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto #2 in C Minor, the most achingly romantic piece of music ever written, or Prokofiev’s sumptuous score to the ballet Romeo and Juliet.

Boy by Eden Bradley


I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book. It was different from my normal genre in the sense that it's a little darker and more....sadistic, for lack of a better term, in the sex scenes. Overall, I did enjoy the book and seeing where the relationship between Christopher and Aimee would go. The characters had a lot of depth and the story line was definitely different. The ending did leave me wanting to read the next one, so that's a good point in its favor!!!



Synopsis:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Eden Bradley~the continuation of her tale of ultimate surrender found in Book One of The Training House Series, GIRL

Being broken has never been such beautiful torture…


I am Christopher. I am most specifically not called Boy in this exclusive slave training arena where every submissive male is known as ‘Boy’. They don’t let me retain my identity—they make me. They keep me in my head, in my body, no matter what they’re doing to me, because they know I require it. They call me brat. They call me rebel. These terms are far too bland to describe what I really am. I am anger in chains. I am seething sexual animal. I am the worst kind of f*ck-up. 

The Master loves me. Maybe only because the level of my misbehavior challenges him to come up with new and terrible punishments. Do I sound proud? I am. I also love him, in my way. It’s a strange dynamic, one that has never been disrupted by anyone. Until I saw the new Girl. 

Fresh-faced and indescribably lovely. Burning alchemical reaction that threatened to consume me the moment I saw her. I will call her Aimee. I refuse to play the Master’s games. Because for reasons I don’t understand, she is instantly more to me than any of the other Girls. What will she think of me? The ultimate anarchist. The keeper of secrets. The unbreakable one. Why do I even care? All I know is that I do. And that this Girl could ultimately be the one who finally breaks me.
