My Review
*ARC received in return for an honest review

Get me a bucket of ice NOW!! Jeez, that was one HOT & dirty book I couldn't read fast enough, I practically devoured it! I've said it before and I'll say it again, this series just gets better with each book and hotter too! 

Hooked started off as it meant to carry on, at a fast enthralling pace, with the heat ramping up until the very end. If you've been following this sports romance series, and I truly recommend that you do, then you'll know Hooked is Riley Wilde's story and boy, is she wild!  

Mark was introduced in Fastball, the second book in the series, and I have to admit I didn't really notice him other than to guess he held a torch for Riley. But he's certainly proved himself to be a red hot blooded alpha male and damn, is he hot!! I'm drooling just thinking about him. Who knew golfing could be so hot? 

If you're looking for a quick read that will have you laughing out loud, leave you hot under the collar and ready to pounce on the next poor guy who walks by then 1-click this baby and get HOOKED.  It will take take you for a hot and fast ride, leaving you breathless and reaching for a cigarette, even if you don't smoke!

A.M. Hargrove & Terri E. Laine have definitely scored a hole in one with Hooked and I can't recommend it highly enough.

My rating...

Cover Reveal: For All The Evers by Debra Anastasia

Today is the cover reveal of a very special book by a wonderful lady, Debra Anastasia.

Below is a letter Debra would like to share with you all to show how much For all The Evers means to her.

The release date of For All The Evers,  December 18, will be a way for us to pay tribute to our veterans and people that are currently serving.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Uncle Tommy,

I wish I had known you. You died in World War II. I know you had no wife, no kids, no descendants other than your brother’s children. I’ve often wondered how life would have been different if you’d lived.

My mom never met you, but you’re talked about a lot. My grandpa, your brother, told us your stories. He was hilarious, and I guess you’re together now. That’s a good thing. I know he missed you. And I was proud of the stories I heard about you.

I’ve felt helpless because there’s no fixing the past, but now I realize maybe I can. This letter is to thank you for your sacrifice, but I went further than that. I finished the book I promised your niece I would write.

Hopefully, after people read this, you will be known. It is my dearest hope that you will be remembered. My readers are incredibly generous with their hearts, so I know you will be loved.

We haven’t forgotten you.

And we love you.

Deb

WillCover2016.jpg

Title: Will 
Series: Not Your Average British Romance, Book 2 
Author: Kerry Heavens
Genre: Contemporary romance
Release Date: November 1, 2016


 
Synopsis

Will Middleton has no clue how much I want him. 

He looks at me like I’m an angel, 
And all I can think about is how he would look tied to my bed.
He’s the perfect gentleman. 
Amazing considering he’s related to The Spencer Ryan. 
He is everything Spencer is not. Sensitive, considerate, and unassumingly handsome. 
I’d like to show him that’s a good thing. 
But he broke my heart once, 
and I don't know if I can let him do it again.

Mags Goldsmith is a beautiful, confident heiress and she seems to want me. 
Although she really shouldn't. I'm not what she needs. 
She’s a goddess. And when I say goddess, 
I mean erotica writing siren, who knows more than one use for a riding crop
Everything I thought I knew about her has been rewritten,
And now she’s got me tied up in knots. 
She's everything I've ever wanted and more, 
I just have to prove I’m worthy.

This is not your average British romance. 
It's a tale of second chances, strap-ons, and of course sex oranges, 
All bound up and tied to a bedroom door.

Excerpt

She stares at me. I feel like I've bared all and she's still giving me no clue. I'm just about to pull my arm out of her grasp and walk away, when she leans in and presses her lips to mine.
All my resolve, all my hesitation goes out the window and I have her under me in a split second, pushing my tongue between her parted lips. It’s so unlike me, but I’m only human, I can only take so much longing before I break. Taking what I have needed for so long, I try to put my doubts out of my head. I know I’m not who she needs me to be and I can’t ever be, but right now I don’t care.
I’ve been alone without her. I can’t do it anymore. I need her.
Thank God,” she gasps when I let her breathe. “I thought you didn’t want me.”
Feel how much I want you now?” I grin, pushing the hard fact of my arousal against her.
Uh huh.” She giggles, pulling my face back to hers.
I let myself relax into her, loving the feel of her body pressing against mine and kiss her, taking my time. I’ve wanted to do this for so long. Her hands find their way under my t-shirt and her nails lightly draw across my back sending a shiver down my spine.
I pull back from her lips, smiling as she opens her eyes. The light from the TV doesn’t do justice to the searing flecks of gold in her green eyes, but I have that indelibly marked in my memory, I don’t need to see it right now. There are however, things I do want to see. This might be a one shot deal and I’m not walking away from this wishing. Lifting off her enough to find the bottom of the t-shirt she’s wearing, I help her off with it, burying my face in her neck. She smells just like I remember and I want to eat her. 
Holy shit! I didn’t mean eat her, eat her…but fuck, I could, if she’ll let me. 
Hers was the first clit I ever licked and I think even back then I was pretty good at it. It’s worship in it’s purest form and I doubt any man has ever worshiped her like I did…do…and now I could remind her. I try to take my time making my way down, I want to bury my face between her legs like, yesterday. I'm aware that I'm rushing, a couple of kisses here and there as I ease down her body, but I can't slow down. 
Reaching her underwear, I'm already intoxicated by her heady scent. I grasp her knickers in both hands and peel them down, stopping dead in my tracks when I see that she is completely bare and as if this isn’t almost more than I can take right now, she has the word ‘Focus’ tattooed, just…there above her…you know. Like she knows she will have an intoxicating effect on whoever is lucky enough to read the word. I’ll be honest, it’s the one thing I can’t do right now. I think I might have swallowed my tongue.  
I can’t describe what this does to me. I’m sure it has some deep meaning, but fuck…what was I doing? Oh yeah, I was about to worship her like she has never been worshiped before. Show her that anyone else who has tried was simply pretending, because this is from the heart. Except now, I have performance anxiety. I mean, look at her. Stunning, and so boldly confident in her sensuality, that she has an instruction tattooed right by her perfectly waxed and ready…Je-sus! I can’t even think the word.

Cover Reveal: Dashing Through The Snow by M. Leighton

Halloween is over.  Thanksgiving is on its way.

What better way to celebrate the holidays than to curl up with a hot, sexy story about a hot, sexy snowboarder?

Title: Dashing Through The Snow
Author: M. Leighton

Synopsis

Dilyn Hart hates Christmas, so when her boss (and ex-boyfriend) hands her an assignment to interview champion snowboarder and gorgeous playboy extraordinaire, Dash Grainger, on Christmas Eve, she takes it. There are several things she doesn’t plan for—a surly driver, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, a freak snowstorm—but the biggest surprise of all is Dash himself.

Dash Grainger lives for the high, and so far in his twenty-six years, he’s never met anyone or anything he loves more. Nothing has ever thrilled him as much as slick snow, cold air, and breakneck speed.

Until he meets Dilyn.

But one perfect night doesn’t mean clear, blue skies the next day. There are some storms that can’t be weathered.

Christmas Day might just be one of them.

Brie Holloway is beautiful.

My Review
*ARC received in return for an honest review

Aaw, I adored this book!! I loved the first book in the series, Chasing Butterflies, but this was even better. I couldn't put it down. Chance and Brie grabbed me from the very beginning and wouldn't leave go even after I read the last page. They have found their way into my heart.

We first met Chance & Brie in Chasing Butterflies and, although Catching Fireflies can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend you read book one first for a better understanding of all the characters and their back stories as they do cross over.

I loved Chance, he was so adorable, thoughtful and loving for those he cared about. I felt so sorry for him and what he had to cope with in his home life as he grew up, that I cried a few times for him. He made my heart hurt.
Brie was  quite a strong character, the perfect soulmate for Chance. I cheered out loud when she stepped up and came to Chance's defence during a very emotional time for him.

Terri E. Laine has fast become one of my 'go-to' authors, she creates wonderful characters who fill us with so much emotion that we can't help either hating or falling in love with. I have laughed, cried and shouted my way through this book.

If you're looking for a great second chance romance read then I can definitely recommend Catching Fireflies, it's the perfect book to curl up with on these dark cold nights.

I give this a rating of...
