Torrid (Sordid #2) by Nikki Sloane

Nikki Sloane can write. Now before I do my review, just let say, that this is nothing like Sordid, which isn’t a bad thing. For some, it may even be a good thing. While I loved Sordid, and it’s questionable morals, some didn’t. Which is understandable.

So if your steering clear due to the first, no worries, this one is dark, but not dubious consent dark.

I genuinely liked Oksana, while she was in over her head, she still held her own.

“I might not outsmart the devil, but I was willing to deal with him.”

Everyone has a agenda, including Oksana. She is betraying everyone while trying to make an ally, and keep herself alive.

It’s tricky, and a satisfying plot.

Vasilije is a great anti-hero, he’s cold, ruthless, and bit selfish, but he also has some redeeming qualities, which makes for a believable romance.

It was sexy and suspenseful.

Why 4 stars? It was a bit repetitive at times.

 

Bombshell (Hollywood A-List #1) by C.D. Reiss

I think I’ve given every book that I have read by  C.D Reiss’s books 5 stars, except this one.  Now If you know this author, she is pretty clear that her books are NOT safe.

This book is kind of safe. This is a sweet book. I got goosebumps in the epilogue. I never get goosebumps. I love how Brad grows into fatherhood, and the support he received for doing what was right.

Brad is an actor who is a playboy, but he’s also a country boy who you can’t help but fall love with.  He’s living the dream until he finds out he has a daughter. A daughter who just lost her mother and is in need of some love and support.

No Nanny will do, it has to be Cara. Cara is laid back, she’s kind of go with the flow. She loves her job. She tries to stay out of the limelight because of past history. So she made a rule, never nanny for celebrities. It’s for her protection, one wrong move and your on the front page.

Cara decides to break her rule, because let’s face it, Brad needs the help, and she can’t say no. Even though she keeps picturing him naked.

Now that really what this book is about. A Nanny who didn’t stand a chance, and an actor who has his world turned upside down by a little girl named Nicole.

The sex is steaming, the feels are good, and all in it was a cute book. For some this will be a 5 star read, for me its 3.5 , I liked it 🙂

 

Tormentor Mine (Tormentor Mine #1) by Anna Zaires & Dima Zales

“There is no beauty without ugliness, just as there’s no happiness without sorrow. We live in a world of contrasts, not absolutes.”

I love this author writing, I devoured this book. Usually, too much inner dialogue drives me crazy, but it worked.

It all worked for me.

Peter is the best kind of Anti-hero, his obsession is downright romantic.

“I want her. It’s completely irrational, and wrong on so many levels, but I want her.”

I like how one minute I’m rooting for Sara, and the next I’m happy she got caught.

I liked Sara she was strong and smart. She knew she had no options, and she did what she had to do.

I think all dark readers will love this book, even those who aren’t will probably enjoy this on some level.

Good stuff.

Buy Me, Sir by Jade West

I used to be obsessed with Jade West, not like Melissa is with  Alexander because that chick is coo coo.

crazy

I mean I was uncomfortable, and that’s saying something.

Alexander is into some hard core shit, but Melissa wants what he wants, she will do anything just to have him.

So basically we have 2 types of crazies who fall in love and have some kinky sex.

Now  Jade West can write a damn sex scene.

My problem wasn’t so much the writing or even the plot, it was just long.

Like way too long.

I was skimming to get to the good stuff. tenor

I know, I know party foul.

So it’s a solid 3 stars for me, long story but sexy nonetheless.

Pushing Her Limits (Masters of Adrenaline #3)

3 stars for the story, 5 for the smut

Somehow I missed the first 2 book in this series, but I didn’t feel lost.

I enjoy BDSM and I love a sadist, and Altas was a great Sadist.

*Note to self: Don’t look for spanking GIF unless alone or “smut”

My review skills have dwindled, I don’t know what to say about books anymore, maybe I’m lazy.

Two people on different sides of the law find love and kink.

It was a sexy book. There is knife play, NO blood. 🙂

Dirty Doctor: A Novella (Steamy Coffee Reads #2) by Whitney G.

When it comes down to a book, we just want to escape and find sexy entertainment, well at least that’s how it is for me. This book did just that,

 It was sexy, and covered some doctor fantasies I didn’t even know I had.

Garret and Natalie are a perfect match, well at least that’s what the app says, but they haven’t met. When they do meet, it’s under professional circumstances.

So things get a little messy and Garret gets a little pissy. The sexual tension is on point and the banter is great.

So why 3 stars. It was kind of slow for a short story. It was like by the time we got to the action, the book was ending.

All and all, its a quick, sexy book.

Venom & Ecstasy (Venom #2) by S. Williams, Shanora Williams

The first half of this book was almost too sweet for me, and it fell flat. Thankfully it did pick up. This wasn’t as sexy as the first one. I still liked it, but I can’t pinpoint where it lost stars, I really did expect more from Draco.

bored

This book is about Gianna’s road to discovery and healing. We get a lot of answers about   Draco. While I expected more from Draco, I was even more disappointed in Gianna. She was supposed to be this strong vengeful queen. She kind of just fell in line, I mean she did act out, but not for the right reasons?

As a dark reader, I expect the heroine to fuck up, I almost look forward to it.

spankdon't make that face

Gianna really took to getting in trouble to a whole new level, and it kinda of set the rest of book, leaving us with a broken heart at the end.

I loved the writing, but I hated the way it ended, but I look forward to the next book.
