Reunited In Love by Nadia Lee- REVIEW


Title: Reunited In Love
Author: Nadia Lee
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 9, 2013


A Hot Sexy Contemporary Romance from Nadia Lee -- featuring an overprotective alpha billionaire hero who'll move heaven and earth for the woman he loves...

A temporary reunion...

Newly jobless and adrift, former investment banker Kerri Wilson travels to Virginia to see her best friend and regroup, only to run into billionaire playboy Ethan Lloyd. It's been years since she's snuck out of his bed after the most amazing sex of her life, and he's so not her type--she likes them tall, dark and manageable. But he's too hot to resist, and she succumbs to another sizzling, no-strings-attached (or so she thinks) night.

Unwilling to let her go this time, Ethan makes a simple proposition: a job, a place to stay, and an exclusive affair that will end when either of them finds someone else. But with her dark, painful past catching up to her, Kerri may have to bolt again--even though her heart is telling her to stay. And Ethan's not giving her up without fighting to make their "temporary" arrangement something far more permanent...


The Hearts on the Line Series Reading Order

Book 1: Vengeful in Love (Natalie Hall & Alex Damon) – Free!
Book 2: Reunited in Love (Kerri Wilson & Ethan Lloyd)
Book 3: Redemption in Love (Amandine Monroe Lloyd & Gavin Lloyd)
Book 4: Sweet in Love (Brooke de Lorenzo & Pete Monroe -- out March 2014)


Imagine having that one HOT night with someone years ago, never really being able to get them out of your head... and then they are in front of you.  What would you do?  How would you feel?  Shocked?  Excited?  Hot to the CORE?

Kerri and Ethan got the chance to find out in Reunited in Love.  Nadia did a fantastic job in bringing old characters back to life from Vengeful in Love.  It's nice to see the people in the background get the lime light for a change.  She built their own stories and compounded on her previous title.  Good thing to know is that Natalie and Alex show up here too!  Which only adds to the dimension of the story that she's building.

If you are looking for a couple of feel good stories that you can relate too, but luxuriously live through someone else, pick these up today!

We give Reunited in Love 3 1/2 stars.  Looking forward to Amandine and Gavin's journey in Redemption in Love!

When she's not writing the sexy contemporary romance series HEARTS ON THE LINE featuring hot, protective and possessive billionaire alpha heroes, she can be found digging through old Asian historical texts or planning another trip.

Hybrid by B.N. Toler ~ Blog Tour & Giveaway


Title: Hybrid (The Healer Series, #2)
Author: B.N. Toler

 photo add-to-goodreads.jpg

My Aunt Lucy used to say, “If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.” She said many wise things I never heeded when she was alive. I want to be the woman that’s okay with hiding from what she fears and letting her big, strong man protect her. But that’s not me. I hate to be scared. I hate the feeling that there is an evil out there that could hurt me if it finds me. But mostly, I hate that so many before me lived in fear and died at the hands of evil. That is why I cannot find peace within. There is no peace for me while Healers suffer the atrocities of others.

I know Rhett would protect me at all costs. He loves me. And that is why I must leave him behind. It’s impossible to justify hurting someone you love—or many you love—to do what you truly believe is right. Lucy also used to say, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I get what she was trying to tell me now. Hindsight is twenty/twenty. Sometimes we choose a path we think will lead us toward a noble cause, full of ambition and altruism, only to look back and see we’ve run over and crushed the ones we love most along the way. I can only pray that one day those I love will forgive me.

I woke up and I left. I left Rhett, the man who saved me from myself. The man I love. I left my brothers—my best friends.

I left.
But leaving led me to more. I found answers. I found others like me—who want what I want.

But most importantly, I found myself.

My name is Aldo Lawson.

I’m awake.

And I’m a Hybrid.

Our Review:
   We loved Healer with it's unique storyline and characters and Hybrid is just as amazing, if not better! Everytime I though I knew where the story was going, I was yanked in a different direction. I can't say enough how much I LOVE Aldo. She is so real, has real reactions to situations. She also listens to her heart no matter if it's telling her to leave the people she loves and go on a suicide mission.
   This book has a lot of mystery and suspense that will keep you gripped tight the whole time. Get this book, I promise you won't regret it!! I can't wait to get my hands on the next one, so you better get them typing fingers busy, Mrs. Toler!!!!
 
 4.5 STARS!!!!

Friends with Benefits by Anne Lange- Blog Tour and Review


Title: Friends with Benefits
Author: Anne Lange
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance – Ménage w/light BDSM elements
Publication Date: January 17, 2014



Can a summer of sexual exploration, lead to an unconventional forever.

When his best friend moves to the area, Tyler seizes an opportunity to fulfill his wife’s fantasies while, hopefully, leading her in the direction of his.

They shared women in the past, and Connor’s the only man Tyler trusts with this special summer assignment. But when neighbors start to gossip, and the actions of strangers threaten their already precarious threesome, he worries that Angela’s uncertainties and Connor’s ex will end what could be the perfect forever.

Tyler O’Neil

Until pillow talk exposed his wife’s fantasies, Tyler had no idea some of Angela’s desires so closely matched his own. So, when he decides to enlist the help of his best friend to fulfill a few for her, he secretly hopes it will lead to his own personal desire - a permanent threesome. Tyler and Connor shared women in the past, he’s the one and only man Tyler trusts with this special summer assignment.

Connor Jones

Connor can’t believe it when he best friend asks if he would consider seducing his wife. Then he meets Angela, and all the women in his past fade away. With his friend’s blessing he sets out to seduce the man’s wife. And when Tyler joins the party, the three of them set the sheets on fire. Angela is one sexy woman, and Tyler is one lucky man. If only Connor could find a woman like her, one who would love him unconditionally.

Angela O’Neil

Angela is floored when her husband suggests they explore some of her fantasies. Sex with a stranger, phone sex, outdoor sex, threesome sex. These were things she read about, thought about, wished for, but never in her wildest dreams thought would she be able to live them. She loves her husband, but soon she finds herself falling for his best friend too. That’s not normal, is it? What will people think? Sandwiched between the two of them, she’s never felt so treasured, so protected, or so loved.

When his best friend moves to the area, Tyler seizes an opportunity to fulfill his wife’s fantasies while, hopefully, leading her in the direction of his.

They shared women in the past, and Connor’s the only man Tyler trusts with this special summer assignment. But when neighbors start to gossip, and the actions of strangers threaten their already precarious threesome, he worries that Angela’s uncertainties and Connor’s ex will end what could be the perfect forever.


Trailer:

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/xLJytXPLFCQ?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Angie sat cross-legged on the window settee. The brightness of the moon belied the late hour, pushing the shadows deep into the corners. The faint murmur of Tyler’s and Connor’s voices rose through the floorboards from the first level. She looked over at the rumpled bed sheets and then down at the journal lying open in her lap. She re-read her entry.
We did it. I actually did it. How much must Tyler love me to have granted me this particular fantasy? Who knew my husband had a kinky side? And, even though he encouraged me to play with Connor over the weekend, which…WOW…tonight was different. Very different. Tonight the man I’m committed to watched another man make love to me. He helped another man make love to me. No jealousy. No competition. Only mutual excitement, sharing and exploring.
Honestly, it was a little weird at first. But, knowing Tyler trusted Connor made me feel secure. Though I guess I should have known he’d arranged the whole thing. I just didn’t think his surprise would include his best friend.
Oh, my. I can still feel their hands and their lips gliding over my body. The way they touched me, as if I were made of spun sugar. They kissed me. First their lips soft and sensual, and then demanding, scorching, as though they couldn’t get enough. I’ve never felt so alive, so beautiful, so treasured.
Few words were spoken. Few were needed.
“Let’s tie her up.” I’ll never look at Tyler’s silk ties the same way.
“Your skin is so soft, like flower petals.”
“You smell like vanilla, but you taste like some exotic brand of honey.”
They were so in tune to each other. Their hands guided me where and how they wanted me. All I could do was moan and sigh—until the end. Sometimes they took turns, sometimes they played with me together. At times it was almost too much. Having four hands or two tongues pleasuring me…my body hummed like a tuning fork. The energy they created…oh…I could almost feel the blood rushing hot and thick through my veins.
The blindfold hid them from me, and I so wanted to watch. But, I admit, I had no difficulty telling them apart. Their bodies are similar in build, but they are different in every other way.
The only thing that could have made it better would have been to feel both men inside me at the same time. Being sandwiched between two gorgeous men…that’s something I think many women fantasize about. I imagine my body would struggle to accommodate them, but in the end they would win. I think I’d forget to breathe.
My mouth’s watering as I write this. My body tingles. Should I be ashamed of how I feel? How will Tyler react now that it’s over? Was this a one-time event? How do I tell my husband I’m counting the hours until we can do it again?
Angela paused and raised her head when the bedroom door opened, and her husband walked in, a knowing smile on his handsome face.

'Could somebody die from too many orgasms?'- Angela

OH DEAR LORD, WE HOPE NOT!!!  But damn does she sure try her luck.  From pillow talk with her hot hubby, to acting out some of the most taboo fantasies, Angela gives 'Friends with Benefits' a whole new meaning.  Worried that she won't live up to Tyler's (hubby) and Connor's (hubby's best friend) dreams as much as they have lived up to hers, she goes head first into this new world.  A world where I will say for sure, is one of the HOTTEST places I have had the pleasure to read about.  At one point...  I BLUSHED!  Yes, ME!  

With all the witty banter back and forth between Tyler and Connor, and Angela staying in her head too afraid to branch out, you will want to keep reading (and keep an eye on your kindle to make sure it doesn't catch on fire).  Tyler's the type of hubby that we all would love to have in some ways.  One being he completely understands Angela's needs for BOOK BOYFRIENDS!  Yea ladies, it's all laid out in here and he even 'assists' her after one particularly hot scene...

This one is BURNING up with sexiness.  
Worried that it would end up being a little raunchy and way out of our comfort zone, we went into this with an open mind.  Good thing that we did!!  Anne Lange did a fantastic job taking us into a world you may have never thought you should visit and did it very tastefully and leaving you wanting more.

We give this one 4 stars (based the fact that she actually made me blush!)  :)



Anne grew up the oldest of four in Ontario, Canada. She works full-time and writes in her spare time. Books and shoes are her passion. Reading is her escape. Anne started writing in late 2009, realized she needed to figure out what in the world she was doing, and began her trek of workshops, networking and writing. While she reads many genres of fiction, she prefers to write hot, edgy romance with attractive men, sexy females, and always a happily ever after. She’d love for you to follow her on this journey as she brings more fiction to the world for people, who like her, just need to get away from it all for a few hours every now and then.

Promise Me Always by Kari March

Promise Me Always
by Kari March
 
BLOG TOUR
 
Synopsis:
Blake Bentley had a rough upbringing, never fully believing he was good enough for anything or anyone. After being left with a broken heart by his only girlfriend, Blake swore off relationships for good and turned to the only two things that made him feel sufficient - sex and firefighting.
 
Tessa Collins was brought up in the traditional 'perfect' family - loving parents, great sister, and amazing friends. After falling in love with Jared, her life was perfect - until he betrayed her. She has no idea that his betrayal could end up costing her more than just a shattered heart.
 
Blake and Tessa have been friends since high school. Never wanting to admit their attraction for each
other, the two always remained close friends. Now, three years later, Blake and Tessa find themselves
being pulled together by a force much greater than friendship.
 
Blake and Tessa have promised to be friends forever, but as fate pulls them together, they embark on a roller coaster ride of a lifetime. Will his self doubt and her insecurities keep them apart? Or will they be able to promise each other always?
 
**content is for +18yrs. **
 
 
Excerpt * Blake POV:
Tess headed for the kitchen, so I got up and followed her. As soon as she shut the fridge from
getting her beer, she rammed into my chest. She backed away looking all flustered. Color slowly
crept into her cheeks as her eyes scanned the length of my body. Damn! She was hotter than I
even remembered.
“Hey, baby girl. Can we talk?” I whispered in her ear.
“Sure, Blake. What’s up?”
“Not here. Come with me.” I grabbed her hand and led her out to the balcony. For some reason,
I didn’t want an audience for this conversation.
Once we were outside I took her in my arms and gave her the biggest hug. I had wanted to do
that since she walked in the door tonight. Fuck, she smelled just like the beach and her scent
was enough to make me hard. I needed to talk before my dick got me in trouble. “Are you okay?
You deserve so much better than that asshole,” I said softly into her ear.
She took a deep breath and started twirling her hair again. “I'll be alright, Blake. Pretty sure I
knew it was coming. It’s not like this is the first time he’s done this. I guess I was just stupid for
thinking he really was sorry. I’m just so embarrassed. I mean, how stupid am I?”
“Tess, you’re not stupid. He’s the jackass that fucked up. If he couldn’t see how amazing you
are, then that's his loss. Please don’t think that about yourself. You are one of the smartest girls
I know and you deserve someone that will treat you like a damn princess.”
With those words she threw herself into my arms and held onto me like she was drowning. She
fit perfectly wrapped all around me and I couldn’t help but think back to that afternoon in my
truck. I started to feel my pants getting tighter as the memories filled my mind. I pushed her
back and held her at arm’s length. Her face fell a little at my gesture and I felt like an ass, but
the last thing I wanted her to feel was my dick pressing against her.
 
 
Our Review:
  Kari March done a fantastic job at bringing her characters to life. Tess and Blake are one very steamy pair that have one heck of a communication issue. Tess isn't a whiney 'Oh Woh is Me' heroine, I mean this girl is tough and Blake is completely swoon worthy. The supporting characters are hilarious, I do believe Lexi was my favorite though ;). 
  
  Promise Me Always is one heck of a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. I peeled through this book with no problem. The end of it was kind of drug out and it did get repetitive in spots but still good.
 
  Overall, Kari's debut novel was a hit and we will definitely check out her next ones. A Book Whore for life!!! Good Job Kari, keep it up!!!
 
3.5 Stars!!

I have always had a passion for reading my entire life. I love it so that I dedicated my life to educating children. As a teacher, I have had the profound pleasure of teaching children to read and explore their imaginations through a good book. Just recently I decided to write a story that had been on my mind. Now I have several that I want to turn into additional books. Writing has become a passion that I dearly love. I live with my handsome husband in Southern California. We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle that California provides. We have two beautiful dogs, but on children.

Meet the Characters:


Excerpt 1:
Closing the door behind me, I was grateful to be back in my own room. Peeling out of my clothes, I quickly got into the shower. It felt like an oasis, the water caressing my body. Thoughts of Mac and I in bed were coming back to me like rapid fire from a machine gun. These thoughts startled me as my body began to respond to the pictures in my mind. Mac knew his way around a female’s body and it certainly felt as though he had pulled out all the stops with me. When I closed my eyes I could visualize his head between my legs. The memory of it made my insides clench down deep. Then I remembered the culmination of his efforts and my body’s response in a tantalizing orgasm. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced before. I had to push those thoughts out of my head because the whole situation was crazy. We got married, and he didn’t seem to be taken aback by it. In fact, he was calm about the whole thing. Strange reaction for a guy. I felt kind of bad for running out of there like I did, but when I fell on him, things became real—too real. I began remembering in that moment our intimate interaction, and for a split second, I thought about surrendering to my desire for him. Again. Willingly. While sober. If I had, we’d be in bed together, and he’d be doing… Mac proclaims love

OUR REVIEW
 
3 STARS
 
'What happens in Vegas, sometimes doesn't stay in Vegas'.

This is ever so true with the journey these two head out on.

Mac-lost in her from the moment he sat his eyes on her.
Natalie- confused but safe in his arms.

A love story that's written in a backwards fashion but ends up on the road to a soul searching life together.

"I'm yours. I was waiting for you and didn't even know it."
-Natalie
