Stately Pleasures by Lucy Felthouse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The pleasure was all mine. This book was HOT! If you have read this book or thinking of reading it, you will think the same as me, lucky Alice. Jesus she gets the proposition of a lifetime.
Alice attends a job interview to work at a stately home belonging to Jeremy Davenport. She believes she messed up at the interview, nerves taking over but she gets the call to say the job is hers. Oh it's just the start of her happiness.
Jeremy comes across a little gruff but he's a real nice guy and hot with a wicked sexually appetite.
Alice is doing her best to impress, so when she gets a call to head to Mr Davenports office, she doesn't want to disappoint by arriving late.
Unfortunately she hears something and hovers too long outside his door, that's when she meets, Ethan the security guard, all muscle and drop dead delicious, he comes up behind her and escorts her to another office believing sh…

Dissident by Cecilia London
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dissident caught me off guard. Nothing like what I was expecting from a political thriller. Majorly hot sex scenes weaved in with witty banter. Caroline's food, movie and baseball references are so clever and funny.

Caroline is in a government hospital in a coma and the book is told back and forth between the present and her memories.

Caroline suffered a great loss when her husband was killed in an accident.
She struggled to do her job in Congress and be a mother to her two children.

She spouts off about Congressman John McIntyre at a political rally and wants to apologize. She ask her best friend to invite him to an event at her home so that she can. Sparks fly from there.

Caroline is cautious emotionally after the loss of her husband but can't deny the attraction between herself and Jack (John McIntyre).

Politically things are heating. Caroline is not one to keep her opinion to herself and I love he…

The first thing that springs to mind when thinking of how to start this review is, How does a writer grip you so much into the story? I fell in love with Shane and Matthew, beautiful characters. Both have different personalities but I was equally drawn to both. Then we have the monsters like, Walter Debussy, the meanest of characters, along with his sidekick, Roy Parsons, that man is an evil homophobic......., you get what I mean.
We meet other characters along the way like David who is Walter son, boy has he suffered at the hands of his father and Roy. Ultimately this story is about two men, Shane and Matthew both have their own pasts to share.
Matthew works for Mr Pig, AKA Walter. He works from home so I suppose that is a bonus, who would want to be around that man is beyond me.
Matthew has been on his own for a few years now, losing his husband, Sam in a car accident. It's s…

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is forbidden love at it's darkest. I knew there would be discomfort going into reading it, but I was greatly surprised by the sympathy I felt for the connection between Lochlan and Maya. Lochlan is 18 and Maya a year behind, they together care for their three younger siblings. Their mother has excited the family for a new relationship but the family is desperate to remain under the social services radar and stay together. I found the narrative of this neglected family difficult reading, it pulled desperately on my mothering instincts . The burden that these two older siblings had to carry was immense and it was inevitable that their life experience would screw them up. Lochlan and Maya's friendship was deeper than the newer connection they had and I felt that it was quite beautiful.

Where this story went filled me with such sadness, to the point that I wanted to disengage with the remaining port…

This book took me by storm and invaded my culinary romantic senses. One of my favourite books is 'Like Water for Chocolate' by Laura Esquivel and this book was also able to take food and weave it seamlessly into a story ripe with interesting characters. Where there's food, there's passion and that is true of this book. There is a quirky, different feel to this book and that is positive; I felt like I had come out of my normal genres and immersed myself in something special.

Lou is engaged to a stuffed shirt of a man Devlin (name says it all) who 'allows' her to play with her restaurant until they marry. Lou lives and breaths the creation of good food and the restaurant, named after her grandmother, it is her dream. One day, everything shatters, her relationship initially but the restaurant becomes fall out as it sustains a heinous review. Al is the vill…

Will she remember what happened or is she just faking?
Friends and family are still not sure is she remembers anything.

REVIEWED BY Becky Cox

Rain Shadow Complete Box Set by Tess Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rain Shadow, The Barringer Brothers is a great series. I was hooked from Book 1 and truly enjoyed the adventure.

"Reno" Luke Barringer is near death in the desert when an Angel, Evangeline Sharpe, finds him and saves his life...or does she just draw him into something that is even worse than death.

Luke "Reno" is drawn deeper into the seedy underbelly of Dreygon Sharpe's warped mind and is kept on his toes trying to keep up with Dreygon's ever changing mind sets.

Luke and Angel fall deeper in love with each other and she knows he is hiding something. He is tortured daily with wanting to tell her everything but at what risk.

As Dreygon falls deeper into his cruelty, Angel doesn't know if she will ever escape her grandfather and the life she now can't stand to lead.

Luke "Reno" is willing to sacrifice anything to keep Angel safe. Angel is torn between …

His Angel by Kimberly Blalock

REVIEWED BY Becky Cox

His Angel by Kimberly Blalock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review.

Abby and Addie, twin sisters, were involved in a horrific car accident that left Addie dead and Abby devastated.

Abby has been struggling with the loss of her twin for years. Her best friend Amy has been there for her and been a great support system when she falls apart.

Amy is outwardly strong and outspoken and picks Abby up when the loss is too much to bear. Amy's on again off again boyfriend Dominic brings a friend along on a date with the girls and sparks fly for Abby and Dominic's friend Evan.

Evan is gorgeous and seems very strong and dominant, but we all have our secrets.

Abby's emotional state and Evan's secrets make for an adventurous story full of hot and steamy scenes. Throw in a hit and run that leaves Abby without her last year of memories and it just gets more interesting.

Ms. Blalock has chocked this one full of mystery and ho…

REVIEWED BY Becky Cox

My Demons by Kimberly Blalock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was gifted a copy for an honest review.

I just thought His Angel was a wild ride. My Demons is a crazy train from the beginning until the end. Kimberly leaves us with a cliffhanger at the of this book. If you have not read His Angel, you will need to do so before reading My Demons.

I don't want to say much about the plot and give away the "what the hell just happened" moment for anyone else.

It is an up and down ride the entire book and kept me turning pages. Evan and Abby learn a lot about themselves and each other. Evan's love for Abby never waivers. Abby finds an inner strength that she hasn't had before.

I like to pretend that I'm a good person.

Now I feel empty and lifeless stuck in a place I'm not sure I can escape.

What would you do if you had a chance for eternal love and happiness? What would you do to keep the one that sets fire to your soul?

Suicide Mission by Sara Schoen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sara Night's new life is a crazy adventure. She's learning new things, experiencing new things, and getting herself in dangerous situations. Reading the book, you can't help but cheer her on. "Don't do that!" "Come on, you can do it!" and my personal favorite, "Stop talking!" She has to make hard decisions and make the best out of bad situations, but she doesn't lose her good intentions and her quick wit. I'm not sure the entire thing is 100% realistic, but the story line was really creative and the book was a great read. I couldn't put it down and I can't wait to read more into this series.

REVIEWED BY Becky Cox

Professor Cline: Redeemed by J.M. LaRocca
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The past never stays in the past. The pain, guilt, and darkness still flow through my veins and itch to come out. I’m not proud of my secrets, but I have never felt shame either…until her.

Mason's story takes a darker turn. His love for Emma makes him strive to be a better person and attempt to right the wrongs of his past.

Their passion for each other is still very much present and a driving force for them both. J.M. LaRocca has once again drawn me into a passionate mysterious story that I couldn't put down.

Mason makes some major revelations about himself and his life. One of the definitions of redeemed is to make (something that is bad, unpleasant, etc.) better or more acceptable.

Sometimes love is enough....Mason and Emma prove that.

"My past was coming to an end, and she was my beginning"

Great read!

The Closer You Come by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by Gena Showater, not being a big PNR reader. I truly enjoyed her ability to tell a good story with great characters who are a little bit different to the average. There was a real fun element to the dialogue which I enjoyed. This was quite a longish read and I appreciated the gradual build of a relationship that wasn't rushed.

Jase is one of three friends bonded by a friendship formed in foster care but solidified by very difficult times. Jase has spent the last 10 years doing something he didn't choose and now the three friends have moved to Strawberry Valley for a new start. Brook Lynn is a woman in her 20s trying to make ends meet with multiple jobs, a hopeless sister she loves and profound hearing loss. Brook Lynn is feisty and defensive with barriers that no one penetrates. Jase and Brook Lynn have an unusual start to their relationship involving her sister which…

This story is so compelling it will have you on the edge of seat!.Susan Mac Nicol is exceptional once again in providing the readers with a story so moving and so full of romance you will not want to put the book down.


All Alexander Montgomery has ever wanted was to have a normal relationship and perhaps a chance at true love, but with his traumatic and horrific past he all but lost any expectations that there will be someone out there that will accept him as he is. You see, Alexander experienced the worst type of abuse at the hands of a madman, someone who once claimed to love Alexander and who, with the promise of a relationship, submitted him to years of physical and mental terror, really that is the only way I can describe this experience. After many years and with a help of a therapist Alexander has learnt to live as best as he can and he has become a prominent writer, he knows he cant have a normal …

This is the second book in Paulina's fascinating Witches Amulet series. This book follows the endearing, exciting adventures of Marcus and Michael. This is a heartfelt and steamy story. The M/M relationship is a wonderful tale, I just wonder what Lillith will do next to these sweet, loving, brave men. The story is fast paced, please read Stone Guardian first. I am so excited to read the next book. Paulina's world is one of the most creative, descriptive worlds, and I truly enjoyed this book and both books in the series, so far!

REVIEWED BY Micky Barnard

Maybe Matt's Miracle by Tammy Falkner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have been waiting for Matt's story since he was first introduced in Tall, tatted and tempting. Matt stole my heart in that book, as he appeared to be in a palliative stage of his illness. This story finds him a few years down the line, in remission but still single after the heartache of being dumped after diagnosis. Matt is everything that all the other Reed brothers are, tall, blonde and gorgeous but also with the biggest heart. This book plunges into Kendra's funeral, a fellow cancer sufferer of Matt's and half sister to Skylar. Sky is asked to take on Kendra's children and Matt is a willing helper. I loved the connection between these two even if it was instalove. They moved extremely quickly and I would have enjoyed a slightly slower pace. However, this was easy, lose yourself reading and I did enjoy it.

Rain Shadow Complete Box Set by Tess Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 1:
In this book, it sets the scene of a beaten and near death man found in the desert. Angel rescues him and brings him back to the family "compound". But will he be any better off? "Reno" as they have come to call him, as he has lost his memory, has to be on guard constantly with the MC gang - most of all when he remembers who he is. Because nothing or no-one will be able to save him - not even his Angel!

Book 2:
Once Luke has his memory back, its a game of one step ahead of the others, to make sure the MC don't discover his true identity. In the meantime, the relationship between Luke and Angel heats up, a lot! Angel needs to play Doctor again for Luke and other MC members who can't seem to keep their tempers in check. Although there is one she can't save.

Rain Shadow by Tess Oliver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Things are going at an even momentum with Luke back at work and Angel, Cash and Richo keeping the home front safe. Dreygon is playing mind games with Luke and his DEA job.

Luke and Angel get to go away to Lake Tahoe for some hiking, boating and "stuff!" Once they are back, Dreygon has his men find Cash and they give him a good beating. Doc Angel can only do so much with her limited supplies but super glue comes in handy instead of stitches. This assault makes Luke go ahead to seek the truth about Angel, but could this tear them apart?

As with all good finales, we get all the answers we have been seeking through the five books. Things are wrapped up at the compound in a spectacular way. And the mystery intriguing us throughout the series is solved, it happened to be one of Luke's dad's cold cases. This rocks Angel's life but once she has time to absorb it all, she can only see …

Rain Shadow by Tess Oliver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Even though this book was slower in pace, it was just as good as the others. I loved that we got to read the relationship between Luke and Angel blossoming and growing stronger. Their time on the ranch with Gage and Richo was a much needed change of pace. And getting to know Gage better wasn't a chore either! I am glad Richo had someone there for him too, after his "big brother" Cash is away. And will we see more of Friday - I hope so.

Of course, all good things come to an end, and they have to leave the ranch and head back to Reno. Luke is called back to work and the sooner he can get Dreygon behind bars, the better. Luke and Angel get some alone time at his house, but sharing a bath together is triggering some alarm bells for him. Has he finally got something on Dreygon?

Some would call this book a filler in, I would call it a setter up. All of it was needed to help bring this baby …

I received and ARC for an honest review of this book and I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to delve into the story of Lydia and James.

Soon she finds herself homeless and loveless. The only thing she seems to still have control of is her work, and it is there where she is approached by James. He is so complicated and difficult to read, nothing really is at it seems with him but for some strange reason he seems drawn to Lydia and in the long run by trying to help her he might just end up helping himself.

Unscripted by Christy Pastore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book started really well, it jumped straight into a very engaging story. I loved how Ronan and Halliday met. I had a great mental picture of Ronan. I found Halliday harder to picture maybe because she was quite flaky as a character at times. You could argue that she's allowed to be flaky, having lived through a gang rape and torture. The relationship between Ronan and Halliday quickly moved forward. I found Ronan's swift desire for a relationship somewhat lacking in credibility considering his back story and the fact that they hadn't known each other more than a few days.

An interesting story develops between these two, their pasts, present, future and respective families get in the way. Ronan's life as a film star inevitably interferes in normal relationship development. Maybe that's why everything between them seemed accelerated. A good read with intense characters and plenty…

This was a cool science fiction YA read. There were times I may have liked a little more detail to explain why or how things turned into the way they were. But Logan Keys has painted a fascinating future where many are dying of cancer, turning into zombies, or going to extreme measures to live longer. We are introduced to two very remarkable main characters, Tom and Liza. And I liked that she kept me guessing as to how these two characters would converge in the story. There is also several secondary characters who I will be anxious to read more about in the next installment of this story. I look forward to reading it. This story was original and exciting.

Sins of September by Andrea Smith writing as Graysen Blue
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this story. The Title had me completely intrigued and the story indeed was an intriguing one.

I am sure there will be people who will talk about the Taboo topic, however, in order to totally understand the events of this romantic story, one must embark in this tale of love. LOVE has many faces and we can't control who we fall in love with, nor the time when this will occur. We only know we will do pretty much everything for the recipient of that love, and that if it is the right thing it will provide us with a force so strong we can fight any battle of goliath proportions, as nothing will stand in our way and nobody will be able to break that bond.

Four Play by Amalie Silver.

I had previously read three of the books in this laugh-out-loud quartet and I'll say that they were all highly entertaining and enjoyable.

Big Balls had me shamelessly snorting from the very first page and it continued throughout! Amalie certainly has a fascinating way of drawing the reader right in to her perfectly woven web of words and I loved it in this novella! Big Balls had the perfect mix of humor and romance.

Debating Number 10 is the story of a self-confessed douchebag. This novella is about Simon who is sleeping his way through the girls in his debate team and his plan is to seduce his debate teacher after he bags number ten who he hopes will be Arleen. This was a very sweet and funny story - funny in that who, but Simon, tracks their conquests on a spreadsheet and sweet because watching the relationship between Simon and Arleen grow was really lovely.

Having said that, you don't have to have read the Men of Inked series to enjoy Alfa Investigations (although, you really should because it's an AWESOME series).

Morgan is a bad-boy gone good - but still deliciously bad - who has recently returned from serving in the military and moves states to work at his cousins PI firm. Enter his first case, Race - yes it's her name and has a beautiful story behind it. Strong, uptight, rigid with a soft side that not many get to see. Watching these two butt heads time and time again was pretty entertaining and when they got together, it was kinda explosive.

This is a short and sexy read, no huge story here. It's a romantic and hot, well if you don't include the blackmail. Gasp! blackmailed into having sex, really? Yep but it's all good, trust me. All Holly wanted to do was save the cat and Logan just wanted the pussy.

I love this series. I could not wait to get my hands on this book. The character's you can't help fall in love with them because they touch your heart. The story is always incredible and has a twist you never see coming.

In this story, Elsie is smitten with the two hot guys from the gym. She likes to keep guys at arms length away and keep her heart locked away. She is scarred both mentally and physically from her past. She needs the right man or men to unlock her from her past.

John and Brian are both ex military and MMA fighters. They are also best friends. These men have seen who they want and are always up for a challenge.

This book is about Sally and how her present life came to be.

I loved how the author started out in present tense and then went back in time tracing back history with Sally's ancestor's explaining re-encarnation and how each character came to be. The details in each time period are very good. It made you feel you could actually picture the character in each time and place.

This is a very well written book.

REVIEWED BY Micky Barnard


A Million Miles Away by Lara Avery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This read crashed into my world and sucked me in whole. I devoured the book and wished for more reading time. I've never heard of Lara Avery before but the blurb on netgalley intrigued me and I was not disappointed.

Michelle and Kelsey are 17 year old twins, they've drifted in their closeness in their teens as they're so different. One a dancer, one an artist. Kelsey has a long term boyfriend, Michelle falls in and out of love regularly. Michelle has met Peter, who is about to go to Afghanistan on his first tour. Michelle is killed in a car accident on her way home from taking him to the airport. Kelsey is left without her other half and has no way to get in touch with Peter. When he skypes Michelle, she finds it impossible to tell him. What plays out in Kelsey's life and relationship is compelling. There are terrible secrets but there is also love.

This book was a breath of fresh air …

Chasing River by K.A. Tucker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was different to any KA Tucker book I've previously read but I'm a loyal fan and I liked the different tone.

Amber is an American tourist in her 20s on a four month 'see all you can of the world' trip. She landed in Ireland the day before and was busy hurtling to her tour of the city pick up. She is jumped on by a local man when the world literally explodes.

River saved Amber from his brother's wrong doings and now he's suffering literally. Neither Amber or River can forget about their brief meeting. These two are an unlikely coupling, from completely different sides of the tracks. This book was suspense filled and drew me in. There were aspects of the IRA that didn't gel for me but I have personal feelings about it having been involved in the Manchester bombing aftermath.

I was provided with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

The Ground Rules by Roya Carmen

REVIEWED BY Micky Barnard

The Ground Rules by Roya Carmen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 stars.

Two married couples, Mirella and Gabe, Weston and Bridget. Mirella and Gabe have a solid, passionate marriage and two children. An opportunistic meeting with Weston and Bridget leads to a proposition involving dates and rules. Amongst the rules there are to be no emotional connections. Weston and Bridget have an open marriage but how could this ever not be complicated?

This book gripped me. It's like watching a car approaching and not breaking in the distance but you still can't look away. I loved Mirella and Gabe's relationship but I still enjoyed the development of the dates. I would have liked to have seen the other side to the dates between Gabe and Bridget but that isn't the focus of the storyline. The ending left me wanting more and I'm glad to see a second book is on it's way.

Private North by Tess Oliver

REVIEWED BY Becky Cox

Private North by Tess Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Private North was a great read. Ms. Oliver gave us mystery, romance and humor; not to mention the hot hot Private North.

August is a trust fund baby trying to forge her own way at college and be able to make her own decisions. She foregoes a sterile winter break with her family to take an internship with her favorite Professor. When Professor North invites her to his home during winter break to do the internship, August encounters the North brothers, Ethan and Dalton. You will need to read the book to see which North brother sparks a fire for August but when he does its steaming.

This is my first Tess Oliver book and I love her writing style. The romantic scenes were so very hot. Thanks for a great read Ms. Oliver.

Four Play by Amalie Silver

REVIEWED BY Becky Cox

Four Play by Amalie Silver
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Four Play is four novellas. My favorite was Fair Play which is the prequel to Word Play that I enjoyed very much.

All four are funny, sassy stories that made me chuckle.

Big Balls - Softball players, umpires and some hot times.

Debating Number Ten - Teacher crush and the car analogies kept me laughing.

Surrendering to Innocence - Wilson has a crush to end all crushes on his best friends Mom.

Fair Play - Prequel to Word Play, the original meeting of Lauren and Michael and my favorite.


Enjoyed them all for a quick fun read.
