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 🙂

 

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.

Bound by Vengeance (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles #5) by Cora Reilly

2.5 No connection Stars

So it looks like I may be the odd one out, but I was disappointed. fail

If I remember correctly, I didn’t really love the last book either, maybe the series is just over for me. I don’t know.

I’ve also been a bit of a book funk, my next read shelf is full of books that I own, but I haven’t been able to get into.

Growl ( hate that name), is the top hit man. Her feared, but not so much respected. He is known as the bastard child, well just bastard. There was something  endearing about him. While he was a “monster”, I wanted to hug him and show him some love.

Now Cara, she over thought everything, and I mean everything. I always have a problem with woman who bodies respond, but the mind doesn’t. Maybe because as a woman, if my brain isn’t in it, nothing is happening.

Anyway, she spent most of the book caring what over people thought. Like really? None of those people cared about you, or helped you when life turned to shit.

Between Ms high and mighty, and Growl’s self loathing I didn’t feel a connection.

I mean maybe I’m being picky or harsh, but damn that woman. Lastly, what was with that ending?

I rounded to 3 stars because at least I finished this one. Sadly, it may just be time for me to give up on this series.

Next to Never (Fall Away #4.5) by Penelope Douglas

If Penelope Douglas  writes it, I read it.

So I was kinda of lost where this was going, and it’s safe to say this wasn’t so much Quinn’s story as it was Kat and Jase’s story. It was a story within a story.

Oddly enough this was an emotional book. I felt everything. Was Kat kind of weak? Yes. Was Jase a selfish prick? Yeah. I just couldn’t get over the wasted years. It broke my heart reading about two people who just couldn’t get their shit together.

This book sets the pace of the rest of this series. We meet the children of everyone in the Fall Away series.

We get a glimpse of troubled friendships, rivalry, family. Some forbidden love. I can safely say I will read it.

Naughty Boss by Whitney G.

Okay so I haven’t done a blog post in awhile. To catch up, I’ve bought just about every new book out, that I will read…. so about 5 LOL

 I had to take a step back from blogging due to some haters apparently, I romanticize the wrong things

thats me

That’s a story for another day…

So this book was everything, and I’m biased so there’s that. I love Whitney G’s books.

I love the alpha males she creates, and she did perfect with Michael.

He was the dick we love to hate….

yes-please

The banter was great, Mya was a  great heroine. All in all,  a quick sexy read.
