prince-charming-cover

Synopsis:

Keaton Bridge is one hundred percent bad boy.

Cassie doesn’t need a boy and certainly not a bad one. Nope. She fights crime for a living, and everything about this guy screams trouble, from his charming British accent to his mysterious past.

And Cassie doesn’t do trouble.

Keaton’s got his own trouble. He’s trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility.

All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can’t imagine living happily ever after without her.

All they have to do is walk away.

But neither of them ever walks away from a challenge.

Excerpt:

The list of crimes that happen on the dark net bounce through my brain as he holds me. Is he going to kill me? Strangle me right here in the parking lot of his own factory? Maybe he wants to try. He’s well-built but I’m pretty sure I can take a computer nerd in hand to hand combat. I just can’t let him get the jump.

He goes for me.

I’m surprised and prepared for it at the same time. I didn’t actually believe he’d try, but I’m reaching to block an attack while he’s leading with his head, which is weird, but I got this.

When his lips smash against mine my body is a split second ahead of my brain. It’s processed the list of dark net violence and thus completes a series of moves to bring down a frontal attack.

Even as I’m using his weight against him by holding his arm still while I swing him, letting his high center of gravity do all the work of stripping him of his balance, my mind processes the kiss. Because it was a kiss. A real soft-lipped-slightly-open-mouthed-I want-her-to-like-it kind of kiss.

By the time those nice thoughts register I’m slamming him up against the car. I’m a little disappointed that I can’t take back my counterattack. I would have let him kiss me a few more seconds before taking him down.

His eyes are open wide and the breath’s knocked out of him. The thump of his body against the car door fades into the night.

“Why did you do that?” I ask.

He looks at me as if I asked him why he pees standing up. Brows knotted. Arms out. Mouth half open as if he can’t contain the sheer number of answers he could give me right now.

“What?” He says it like whot and it’s endearing and haughty at the same time. Damnit. I should have taken that kiss and not gotten all black belt on him.

“Don’t sneak up on a girl like that.” I sound like a brat.

He straightens himself out, pulling his cuffs down and realigning his jacket.

“I’m going to pretend you didn’t just do a very impressive judo throw and tell you, out front, that I am going to kiss you. First, I am going to put my hands on your face, because I would like to feel your mouth move when I do it. Then I’m going to tilt my head to the right, so please, you should also tilt your head to the right.” He waits for me to nod, and when I do, he comes close to me and lowers his voice. “I’m going to wait a second once our lips touch, just to make sure we’re both appreciating this first contact. When I open my mouth a little, I want you to do the same. You need to accept my tongue in your mouth.” He puts his hands on my shoulders. “Is that enough of a warning?”

“What happens after that?”

“It’s unwritten.”

He moves his hands up to my jaw, laying his thumbs against my cheeks. He strokes them and I lean forward.

He kisses me just like he said he would. His tongue tastes like ice water, and his lips curve into the shape of mine. The adrenaline in my veins blends with something newer and warmer. He slides one hand back and tugs my hair which sends fluids and sensation and pleasure and all my attention between my legs. I push against him just so I can feel him resist. I need to fight him hard as I want him.

He’s rigid and yielding all at once, turning us around until I’m the one with my back against the car. I shove him away and he separates from me with a sharp intake of breath.

He doesn’t say a word, still holding me by a fistful of hair. The cold clouds of our breath mingle between us. He’s a predator, a criminal, and a mistake. But his jaw is tight and his nostrils flare when he breathes. He’s all those things and a bull charging for the red cape.

“Push me away again,” he says, finally, “and we’re done here. And I know for a fact that’s not what you want.”

I am the red cape, and I need to be yanked away as much as I need him to charge at me again and again.

“When I want you to stop I’ll say so.”

I shove him again, and he smiles before laying a kiss on me. It’s not a kiss I fight. It’s a kiss I want. He pauses, pulling his mouth away as if giving me a second to tell him to stop, but I don’t. I don’t start pushing against him until our mouths are locked again. His hips grind into me. I feel his erection through our clothes.

I’m clutching his coat without any sense. I want to tear away every stitch of fabric. I push and pull with equal ferocity. I want to spread my legs but my coat’s too long. I want to punch him. I want that hard dick stretching me and I want it to hurt. My mind is wiped clean of everything but need. I don’t have a job or a career. I don’t have dreams built from childhood. I don’t have a name. I’m just a pillar of desire. I’m reduced to movement and hunger. I want his body inside mine. Nothing else.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Shopping for an Heir by Julia Kent Review

Shopping for an Heir by Julia Kent Review
Gerald Wright works for billionaires. He never imagined he’d become one.The former Navy Seal is a chauffeur by day, artist by night, so when hotter-than-ever ex-fiancée Suzanne Dayton interrupts his nude model sculpting class to serve him with inheritance paperwork from a man he’s never heard of, he assumes it’s a joke.Turns out the joke’s on him. There’s just one catch. A big one.And it might be Suzanne — in more ways than he ever dreamed.* * *Shopping for an Heir is the 10th book in the New York Times bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire series by Julia Kent.

Shopping for an Heir is the 10th book in her Shopping series.  Gerald Wright has been the security/chauffeur for the McCormick’s, and he shows the sensitive side he has through sculpting and his art classes.  He is the benefactor of an artifact that he helped smuggle into the country years ago to keep safe.  Suzanne Dayton is Gerald’s ex who he broke things off with 10 years ago and hasn’t seen since.  She is now a lawyer that is charge of making sure that the instructions with the inheritance has been carried out.  For the both of them, the past and the present collide, as they realize those sparks have never stopped between them.

I absolutely love this series.  The cast of characters are wonderfully flawed and never to fail with the hilarity of situations they find themselves in. Though we don’t deal with the main characters of the Shopping Series, they do make appearances along with Marie and newbie Agnes who proves herself just as feisty as the other characters.  Julia interweaves both seriousness and comedy in this book with the discussion of PTSD that Gerald has gone through from his days in service.  I love how she brings it to attention without making it too heavy or weighted down. I give this book 4 1/2 stars.  I loved how seamlessly the story flowed and introducing new and old characters of the series wasn’t that far of a stretch.

If you love a slew of great characters and situations that you wonder can happen in real life, then the Shopping series is for you.  I love the expansion into the series with Gerald and Suzanne’s story, and can’t wait for the next book in the series.

He leaned in, kissing her softly. Smoochy stirred, sat up, and toddled off, jumping off a very distracted Gerald’s lap.

 

“Let’s take this,” she said, breathless between kisses, “one step at a time.”

 

“Define ‘step.’”

 

“Spend the night with me.”

 

“I like that step.”

 

“Make me breakfast in the morning.”

 

“Is that step two?”

 

“Sure.”

 

“I always respond well to a clearly defined set of procedures.”

 

“How about a map?”

 

“Even better.”

 

Neither one moved. The offer, once accepted, was almost enough. Acting on it felt so big. So was he, though. As she crawled into his lap, connected to him by their eager mouths, she pulled her skirt up so she could straddle him, his arms wrapping around her waist. The heat of sinking into him, the intimacy of having his body so close, made her mind rest.

 

Her body took over.

 

“You taste so good,” he murmured between kisses, his hands sliding up her spine in tandem, then moving across her shoulders in synchronized perfection to remove her suit jacket. The shiver she gave came less from the temperature change and more from the delicious feel of how he touched her. With Gerald, a touch wasn’t just the stroke of a finger, the brush of a palm, the flick of a tongue, or the thrust into her. Never one to waste movement, he reveled in it, living fully in dimensions she couldn’t even see.

 

He pulled her shirt out from her waistband just as she returned the favor, seeking the raw warmth of his skin. Her hands flattened against his thick shoulders, the connection grounding, her body moving in a slow, involuntary rhythm against him as he kissed her hard.

 

So hard.

 

As he cupped her breasts over her bra, her nipples tightened, the ache spinning down in a spiral, tearing through years of pain and craving. Her breath hitched and his kiss became more urgent, his intent clear. It was so good to kiss a man who knew how to hold her just so, who used a feather light touch where she wanted it, and who pressed where a tighter squeeze made a difference.

 

Gerald had been joyfully unrestrained in bed, hours of pleasure unending, as if there were no events marking time— no final orgasm, no steps in a schematic— but only the undefined fuzzy logic of imperfect art played out in moans and sighs, in the light stroke of a fingertip against responsive flesh, in the wave of tongue against arched hips and the push and pull of love cried out in ecstasy.

 

In minutes, they would be back in that dimension. S

 

he shivered with anticipation.

 

“What are we doing?” she whispered, the tone playful, his hands sinking into her long waves.

 

“Whatever it is, it’s been a while,” he rasped. “I’ve missed you. I’ve missed this.”

Behind Closed Doors by J.L. Berg Blog Tour Review

Behind Closed Doors by J.L. Berg Blog Tour Review
My name is Roman Cavenaugh and I’m kind of an asshole. 
Running a company isn't easy, especially when everyone expects you to fail, so being a jerk? It comes with the territory. 
I don't have time to mess around, and I sure as hell didn’t see her coming.
Cara Hamilton—she was supposed to be off limits…a temporary employee brought in during my assistant’s maternity leave. 
But, in the blink of an eye, she became so much more. 
An obsession I couldn’t shake.

So yeah, I may be an asshole, but now, I finally had a purpose, and soon, she would be mine. 
All’s fair in love and war…
Goodreads

bcd-releaseday

 

Roman Cavanagh is known for being an arrogant conceited jerk.  But he’s had to prove himself his whole life to his father, now taking over the company that he was never even considered to do. He is brother to Jude who was in J.L. Berg’s previous books Within and Beyond These Walls.  This is a complete standalone and you don’t need to read those previous books.

Cara Hamilton is trying to find her footing after following her boyfriend to NYC.  She accepts a temporary position as Roman’s secretary, as his regular one is out on maternity leave.  She is a free spirit and is someone who actually stands up to Roman when he is acting like an arrogant jerk.  Slowly she works past the walls that Roman has erected to protect himself and they find themselves in a boss/employee friendship.  Through this friendship, Cara’s eyes are open to her partner’s true colors.  Soon lines are blurred and the consequences of those actions have to be faced by both.

This isn’t the typical guy meets girl, or girl meets guy, falls in love and have their HEA.  This is a story that both Roman and Cara delve deeper into themselves and see parts they don’t like and work to change that for the better.  When they realize their feelings run deeper than just boss/employee or even friendship, they fight to show the other that they are the one they are meant to be with.  I am being vague because there is a twist in BCD that you have to read to find out yourself, so there will be no spoilers here.

I love J.L. Berg and have since I first read When You’re Ready.  She has a way of getting into your head and pulling at the emotions that you didn’t even know that they were there. Or she taps into an emotion that you don’t want to confront but you have no choice but to confront.  I love that about her and this is a perfect book to start with if you have never read her before and then move onto her other series.

I give it 4 ½ stars, I really wanted to give it 5 but sometimes with Roman I was put off more often than not with his behavior.  But this is a book that will stay with me and I will reread at some point, and I think it will be the same for you if you decide to give this book a go.

Book Review — Moonshot by Alessandra Torre

Book Review — Moonshot by Alessandra Torre
Baseball wasn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase … he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil. I tried to stay away. I couldn’t. Then, the team started losing. Women started dying. And everything in my perfect world broke apart.

Review:

Moonshot is told in dual point-of-view, which is my favorite. I love hearing both sides of the story. Dual point-of-view also keeps from having another book told from the other side, which I feel are a bit of a waste. Sorry, had to gush over my love of dual pov.

Moving on. Ty Rollins is the daughter of famed closing pitcher for the New York Yankees. She has been traveling with the team as a bat girl since her Mom died when she was young. The teammates have kept a close eye on her and see her as family.

Ty is in love with all things baseball. She knows all the stats, all the players and even watches ESPN everyday to keep up with it all. I don’t believe anyone knows baseball more than her.

The Yankees are always looking to win The World Series. They will do whatever it takes to clench that title. Ty knew one of the guys had to go and be replaced with the eye catching troublemaker Chase Sterns.

After being bumped from his last team, the clean cut Yankee’s snatch him up. Ty is stoked because she knows this will help them win The World Series. What she doesn’t realize is that her life as she knows it is about to change.

There is instant attraction between the two, but with Ty being only 17, there wasn’t much Chase could do until she became legal. With that in mind, a friendship was born.

As time wore on, their love burned bright and hot like a wildfire. Unfortunately, fate had a way of screwing it.

I found myself flying through the pages. I just couldn’t get enough. I was learning more about baseball than I ever knew before. I grew up with the Chicago Cubs. My husband is the biggest baseball fan I know. I felt like I betrayed him reading about The Yankees when he loathes them more than any sports team out there.

The romance in the book was very well written. AT developed their love in an all-inclusive way that you can’t help but want to devour it. You found yourself grinning. I was reading it while waiting for a prescription at the pharmacy and found myself covering my smile because it was so bright.

My only complaint about the book, and why I gave it 4 stars is because the twist of the story, the murders, just didn’t seem to fit. Let me first say that the murders are not the only twist to the story. There are more.

Back to the murders. It was at least 50% into the book before the murders even started making their way into the story. I found that a little disheartening. Even with the action starting, they still felt forced. In AT’s other books, her twists work seamlessly. You’re like, “Oh, shit!” I honestly feel like the murders could have been left out of the story and Moonshot would have been just as great.

The ending came rushing in like a hurricane. There was no stopping it and you better hold on because it is intense.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. AT never lets you down and you will definitely enjoy this one. I would compare Moonshot to Hollywood Dirt. It isn’t dark and twisted like her other books. It is a sweet romance, but some real shit happens. If you loved Hollywood Dirt, chances are you will really enjoy Moonshot.

Drop Dead Sexy by Katie Ashley Book Review and Cover Reveal for next book

For Olivia Sullivan, love is more a four letter curse word than a sentiment. Growing up as the daughter of a small town mortician, guys didn’t warm to the fact there were dead people in her house. At thirty, taking over the family business and becoming the town Coroner helped to cement her undateable status. Of course her past sex history didn’t help matters either.

Attempt number one with her first love ended barely before it got started with a horrific latex allergy hospitalization. Attempt number two had him coming and then going with an undiagnosed heart condition. For the past three years, Olivia has closed up shop for fear of what might happen next in the bedroom.

After being forced to go single to her mother’s lingerie shower, Olivia stumbles into an out of town bar with one intention: find an able bodied stud to go home with to end her losing sex streak. Enter Holden Caulfield Mains aka Catcher, who earned his nickname not just from the book he was named for, but for the fact he was sure to catch the attention any woman who came within a five mile radius. Waking up after a night of the most mind blowing sex she could have ever imagined, a horrified Olivia runs away thinking she’s left Catcher behind.

When Olivia’s small town is wracked by its first murder, she never could have imagined her one night stand would reappear in the form of the GBI’s lead investigator. To her mortification, Catcher isn’t ready to let go of their sizzling chemistry, and he doesn’t understand the meaning of no. As things start to heat up between them, the body count starts to rise, and they’re led on a wild goose chase from backwoods mountain Nudist Colonies to altercations with the Dixie Mafia. Can Olivia and Catcher survive to solve the murder while also not succumbing to their explosive passion?

Drop Dead Sexy Review:

I love Katie Ashley. I haven’t read a book she has written and ever been disappointed. Drop Dead Sexy is another one I really liked.

I love that Katie picked a career for a woman (town coroner) that is typically a man’s career. That right there was enough for me to be excited for this book.

Drop Dead Sexy has lots of humor in it. I found myself laughing out loud at the silly and outrageous things Olivia has to do or endure. One example is when she found out she had a latex allergy. I felt so sorry for Olivia having this allergy. Can you imagine how many men buy only latex condoms and don’t think about women who could have the allergy? I mean, when you go to the doctor they always ask you if you are allergic to latex. Lots of people are. But to find out while losing your virginity has to be the worst.

Next, Olivia has to endure yet another sucky incident: her Mother’s lingerie party. I mean, would you go to your Mother’s lingerie party? I’m really open about sex, and I knew my parents had it, and it was talked about openingly at my house, but I can’t say I would want to go to a lingerie party for my Mom.

Well, before she went to the party, she decided she was going to leave town and find herself a man. Her dry spell had lasted too long, and come hell or high water, she was getting laid. Enter sexy Catcher, a Georgia Bureau Investigator.

Well, they hit it off right away. They both had eyes for each other and it didn’t take but a minute for the introductions to begin. Enter sexy scenes. Then more sexy scenes. And more sexy scenes. So many sexy scenes I felt bad for Olivia’s hooha, but cheered for her too.

After doing the walk of shame the next morning, Olivia thought that it would be the last she would see of Catcher, only to find him on a case that she was working on too. Seriously, how had these two never met before?

This is the part of the book that has lots of voodoo, suspense, mystery and some laughs pulled in. It wasn’t a hard core Lisa Gardner detective book, but it had it’s own mystery to figure out with Olivia and Catcher at the helm.

Overall, I give this book a solid 4. I save those 5’s for books that blow my heart apart. I would definitely recommend everyone read this book. It has comedy, sex and mystery all wrapped up in it. I think most people would really like it if you’re into the comedy, sex and mystery aspects. I love reading Katie Ashley books, and I can say I recommend all of them.

The Hard Way by Katie Ashley Caleb Hall has always been the golden boy of the gridiron. Because of his talent at football, coupled with his father’s wealth, he’s always gotten his way. But when a night of drunken debauchery lands him in hot water with the college athletic board, neither his influential father nor his charming grin can save him. He finds it a total buzz kill when he is sentenced to community service with troubled youth at an inner-city shelter. But his nightmare is only beginning when his greatest high school regret is the very one in charge of the program, and she has him by the balls in more ways than one.  For Avery Prescott, senior year was a nightmare of epic proportions, and Caleb Hall played the lead villain. After she fled her small town for college in the bright lights of Atlanta, she thought she had escaped the painful memories of her past. She never could have imagined Caleb would waltz through the door of the outreach program she presided over. But Avery has news for Caleb—she isn’t the same shy, doormat of a girl she was in high school.

Will they stay in the defensive zone or discover that sometimes life's greatest lessons are learned the hard way?

The Hard Way by Katie Ashley Caleb Hall has always been the golden boy of the gridiron. Because of his talent at football, coupled with his father’s wealth, he’s always gotten his way. But when a night of drunken debauchery lands him in hot water with the college athletic board, neither his influential father nor his charming grin can save him. He finds it a total buzz kill when he is sentenced to community service with troubled youth at an inner-city shelter. But his nightmare is only beginning when his greatest high school regret is the very one in charge of the program, and she has him by the balls in more ways than one.  For Avery Prescott, senior year was a nightmare of epic proportions, and Caleb Hall played the lead villain. After she fled her small town for college in the bright lights of Atlanta, she thought she had escaped the painful memories of her past.

Hardball by CD Reiss Review

Hardball by CD Reiss Review

HardBall 

Perfect ass.

Perfect arms.

Perfect swagger.

 They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

Hes the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.

When he runs the bases, every womans eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.

Im no queen. Im a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season. 

Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But theres not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes. 

Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It's a fun, witty, full-length standalone meant for the over-eighteen crowd.

Review:

I loved HardBall so much. I’m usually pretty hard on Christine’s books. I also like them, but I feel this is her best book yet. It starts with Vivian who is an elementary school librarian who takes her under privileged children to the LA Dodger’s stadium for a field trip. Vivian has her own agenda, other than taking her children to the stadium. She wants to get a baseball signed with every member of the Dodger’s team for her dad’s birthday present. Vivian and her Dad are hardcore Dodger’s fans.

While Vivian meets the players there, they all seem very nice and are happy to do a meet and greet with the children. Vivian has three players left to get her ball signed, one being Dash Wallace. She let’s her children go first, and then she went to have her ball signed by Dash, and he asked her if she was a teacher, and she tells him she is a librarian. He looks at the ball and asks her if she has the whole roster on the ball? She tells him it is for her Dad. Dash then almost accuses her of arranging the field trip just so she can get the ball signed. Well, that really ticks her off. Vivian proceeds to snark at him and tells him, “Thank you. If it was too much trouble to sign without an insult, you shouldn’t have bothered. My dad probably wouldn’t noticed it was missing. insert clapping.

From here the books really gets started, and this was all from the very first chapter.

What I really love of about Christine is that she sets the scene in the town she lives in, which is LA. With this book, it is no exception. She draws an image in your head the difference between the low-income neighborhoods to the rich Beverly Hills area. Vivian works in a low-income school that has a lot of children who do not speak english, mostly spanish, but then drives back to her home, which is in Beverly Hills where she lives with her dad. The ultra rich of baseball star Dash Wallace lives in the Hills.

Another thing that I love about Christine’s books is that I’m always learning something new. From the first books I read in her Song’s of Submission series, to her mafia series, her story about a paparazzi photographer and now in her baseball themed love story.

My husband is a huge baseball fan, and I grew up in a small town in Indiana, just an hour outside Chicago. Baseball was in my home all the time. My brother even played ball in high school as a pitcher, only to have his rotator cuff torn and had to have surgery. There went any of his prospects of a scholarship. Colleges don’t usually want kids who have already been injured.

I learned that ball players play something like 162 games a year. Let’s not forget they have spring training. That is a lot of time away from home and their family, if they have one. I also learned that playing baseball doesn’t last that long. In my opinion players in MLB make ridiculous money, more than any sport, and I just don’t understand why. Moving on.

I love that Christine made this librarian have a spine. Dash thought she was going to be easy to woo, like most women he has already been with. What he doesn’t realize is that Vivian wasn’t interested in having her heart crushed again. Yes, dating a rich and handsome man would be great, but he wants to put a time limit on it, so she wants to protect her heart. I don’t know that I could have been that strong.

As the story progresses, their love story begins and moves along at a great pace. I never felt bored. I never wanted to put the book down and I found that it sucked me in right away. The only negative isn’t necessarily about the book, but Christine sometimes has a way to make books wordy. I feel that if I’m reading a great american novel, I can understand all the wordy words, but Christine’s book are romance novels that just don’t need it. I love that she uses books as a connection, and that’s not what I’m referring to, it’s more about the analogies. A few are okay, but sometimes there are more than I feel are not needed.

From the little I just told you about the book, I can honestly say that I would recommend HardBall to my friends. It is my favorite CD Reiss book that she has written. I just can’t wait to get my hands on my own physical copy and get it signed. That’s how much I loved it.

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

An Unforgivable Love Story Review:

I don’t know what to say about this book. Stay with me during my rambles.
First, I met Barbara at Penned Con right before she was to release Love Nouveau. I was giving her unsolicited advice, and she showed me the amazing cover and then I read the blurb. I was honestly stunned that this was her first book. I read it and it was amazing. She made a name for herself in the tough book industry.
Moving on to An Unforgivable Love Story, Berry departs from the basic formula. She wrote the book in 4 sections. Each section is about a different character.
During the first section, I had a good idea where the book was going, and I even sent a tweet to Barbara that I was going to live tweet her as I read the book. The first section leaves you with a cliffhanger.
During section 2, you start all over again, just to leave you with a cliffhanger like section 1 did. That’s okay because when you start section 3, you have all the important information and you feel like you can get a handle on what’s happening.
As you read through section 3, you are going back-and-forth with how you are feeling about the whole situation. Where do you stand on what is happening. Do you agree with the characters decisions or not.
Then when you finish up section three, you feel like things are settled, but then you realize there is section 4. Now what is going to happen? You read it, and it is such a plot twist that I don’t even know how I feel about it. I don’t even think I understand it. Maybe Berry wrote it so you don’t get it and you make your own opinion on what happens. I don’t know. I need to tweet her. The end definitely left me scratching my head.

The Confessions of Marcus Stearns by Tiffany Reisz

Blurb

In The Confessions of Marcus Stearns, notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day. Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal. Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed? Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

The Confessions of Marcus Stearns

There is not a book that Tiffany Reisz writes that I won’t read. She is my Queen of writing. Of course I consumed the book. All the things like housework and people were ignored. I mean, I just found out that Soren has/had a confessor. The shit that man must know. I just had to find out!

Review:

The Confessions is an amazing book. I loved getting a look around in Soren’s mind, plus we also get Elanor and Tiffany’s confessions. Talk about a prize at the end of The Original Sinners series.

It wasn’t necessary what Soren has to say, but the advice he gives Soren. It was great advice, advice I would expect a Jesuit Priest would give anyone.

Elanor even had some confessions of her own. There were a couple of shockers that you don’t see coming, so you will definitely have to read this short story to find out what secrets she is holding on to.

Now, on to the tea. The best part that will give you are palpitations is the end, when Tiffany gives you facts that you didn’t know about the series. Yes, Tiffany has her own confessions, but the list at the end is fabulous. (sung in my most fabulous aka Nene Leakes voice)

I got permission from the Queen herself to spill some of these fun facts about the series. (Rubbing my hands together) Are you ready to get started? All of the following are direct quotes from the book or pieces are direct quotes.

Fun Facts about the series:

  1. All the names of the principle characters in The Siren are based on the four cardinal directions:
    • Nora Sutherlin- North South
    • Wesly- West
    • Zach Easton-  East
    • Soren- South
  2. Soren’s middle name is Lennox, which is an author tribute to English soul singer Annie Lennox who co-wrote the song, “Missionary Man” from which the author of the Original Sinners series (Tiffany Resiz) took the phrase “Original Sinner.” Lennox is also a district in Scotland.
  3. This one is a huge fact for me: Soren is a polyglot meaning he speaks and reads multiple languages. These include English, Danish, Swedish, French, Spanish, Arabic, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, German, Portuguese, Mandarin Chinese, and the biblical languages of Koine Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Latin. None other than Professor Henry Jones, i.e. Indiana Jones, inspired Soren’s polyglotism. That is so cool. Indiana Jones.  Now I’m wondering if Soren watched Indiana Jones to say, “Hey, I want to know all those languages,” or if it was only inspired by Tiffany watching Indiana Jones. Shaming fact, I’ve never watched Indiana Jones, BUT, I have ridden the ride at Disneyland.
  4. Soren’s motorcycle is a black 1992 Ducati 907 I.E. It is the only year the 907 I.E. came in black.
  5. Remember that Soren’s father was a baron. He did not keep the title because he went into the priest hood. However, the family estate is called Edenfell and is located in the north of England along the Scottish border. Due to Kingsley’s largesse, Edenfell is now the property of Fionn Eastion.
  6. There are references throughout the series that reference The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis.
  7. Songs in the series are as follows.
    1. Sting’s, “When We Dance” is the song Soren and Elanor waltz to in The Saint. The Police song Nora dances to with Zach at the end of The Queen is, “Every Little The She Does Is Magic.”
  8. Soren’s name is correctly spoken as Suurn (rhymes with burn.)
  9. Soren and Elanor’s parish is taken from a small farming community in Kentucky near where he author lived at the time.
  10. The original draft of The Siren was written in 2003! In the original draft, Nora picked Wesley over Soren. What you say? Soren told the author he didn’t approve. The author changed the ending, because the author knows what’s good for her.

Don’t fret or worry. There is still a lot of interesting trivia in the book to know. You still have to read Tiffany Reisz’s confession. Just wait for that!

As a HUGE sidenote, Tiffany let’s the reader note that there will be more short stories, or novellas about this cast of characters, but since the series never hit the Bestseller list, it is hard for a publisher to justify an author to keep writing more books. This saddens me so much because this series, the one I’m talking about right now, is my perfect 10. I have not read a better series in all my 35 years. Yes, the series is Taboo, can be a tough subject to read, but I believe Tiffany and her magic poetic pen wrote the best ever series about BDSM out there. The journey she had to go through to get the relationship correct and add the real element of BDSM is equally balanced. I don’t practice BDSM, but I want to think she wrote a love story that has a very accurate betrayal of their sexual world. I know their love story was unequivocally the best series I have ever read. Yes, it’s that fantastic.

Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre

Love, Chloe description

Chloe Madison. That’s me. A former NYU princess who fell from grace, right off my pampered Manhattan throne and onto the unforgiving steps of Nicole Brantley, socialite and queen bitch. Now, I walked her dog and mixed her smoothies. Tried to navigate my own problems while fixing all of hers.

I wanted what every New York girl did. A career, an apartment, and true love, preferably in a smoking hot package.

It turned out … I’d have to fight for all of it.

Review:

Going into Love, Chloe, I had no preconceived notions going into this book. I did not read the Cosmo column, so I really only had a general idea that a rich girl loses her money and has to get her life back on track.
From the moment I started reading it I was in. I’m not surprised because Alessandra always pulls me in. I kept thinking, where is this book going to take me? What kind of ride is it going to be?
From the start I loved Chloe’s friends. They are her rock, rich as all get out, but her true friends. Instead of giving up on her, they help her through this “tough” transition in life.
Enter Vic the ex. Well maybe ex. I found myself cheering for him, and even felt bad for him at times. His acts of love are what I want, being as I’m in the same position as Chloe, and I couldn’t help root for the guy. I have rooted for much worse in books, and they got the girl.
That brings us to Carter. Well isn’t he just something. That’s all I’ve got to say about that. He’s something alright.
Love, Chloe hit me in all the right spots. I was ticked-off at Chloe’s parents for her, I swooned when she swooned, I was confused when she was confused, and I was hot and bothered when she was hot and bothered. This may be one of Alessandra’s less steamier books, but when she steams in this one, oh buddy, it steams. You might even learn a trick or two.

Love Chloe by Alessandra Torre. Chloe Madison. That's me. A former NYU princess who fell from grace, right off my pampered Manhattan throne and onto the unforgiving steps of Nicole Brantley, socialite and queen bitch. Now, I walked her dog and mixed her smoothies. Tried to navigate my own problems while fixing all of hers. I wanted what every New York girl did. A career, an apartment, and true love, preferably in a smoking hot package. It turned out ... I'd have to fight for all of it.
