Right – Wrong #2 by Jana Aston

Everly Jensen believes that there is one perfect, right man out there for her and his name is Finn Camden, her brother’s best friend.

Since the age of six, Everly has planned her life around Finn, going to extreme lengths to gain his attention. During one of her many ploys, Everly comes face to face with the most annoying, intrusive and captivating man she has ever met.

Will Everly get her man? and which man will it be?

REVIEW

Loved this book as much as the first.

Everly is a brilliant character.  She works with Sophie at Grind Me and appears frequently throughout “Wrong”.  She is completely obsessed with her brother’s best friend, Finn Camden and will literally do anything to get his attention but everything she does seems to push him further away.

Sawyer Camden has heard all about Everly and her exploits from his younger brother, and when he finally meets her his interest is piqued.  Knowing that Finn is completely wrong for her, Sawyer sets out to prove that maybe she should be setting her sights on the right brother.

I found this story to be more comical than the first and no less addictive.  As it progresses it gains in seriousness and I’ll be honest, you could be laughing one minute and close to tears the next.   It is very well written with the character developments and connections working really well. Sophie and Luke both make appearances along with some new characters, namely Chloe (Trust) and Sandra (Fling).

I would highly recommend this series if you like hot me, hot sex, and a good storyline.

The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers -Lover’s Triangle #3 by Calista Fox

Insurance fraud investigator, Scarlet Drake, is tenacious when it comes to following the leads.  Her current assignment has her tracking down Michael Vanderberg in connection to an art theft on his family’s estate but when the pair final meet the chemistry is undeniable.  Eliminating Michael from her investigation sends her into the path of his stepbrother, Sam Reed.  Saving Scarlet from a snow bank sends sparks flying and when Scarlet finds out that the brothers have shared women in the past she is more than willing to join them.

With the investigation still in full flow, Scarlet struggles to protect her new relationship whilst still tracking the clues.  Will she be able to hold it all together or will the secrets become more than anyone can take?

REVIEW

I received this book as an ARC review and really enjoyed it.  The characters are interesting and the chemistry between all three is sizzling.  The story is well written and is full of twists and secrets.  Scarlet is a woman who has had a tumultuous past. From the time she lost her parents in a tragic accident she has kept her heart sealed so that she would never feel that sort of pain again. Michael is similar to Scarlet in the heart department, whereas Sam is still recovering from the loss of the woman he loved. It takes all three of them to overcome their fears of love but together they are strong.

This is the third book in the series and although I have not read the previous stories it did not detract from the enjoyment of this one.  The female characters from books 1 & 2 make an appearance in this one and I will definitely be reading these and probably more by this author in the future

This is a menagé a trois with MF and MFM sex scenes.

REVIEW

Came across this series of books thanks to one of my favourite authors – D. L. Roan. When the boxset was released I had to give it a try and so glad I did.  These books are cleverly written in that they all based at Indulgence Resort on Aragon Island.  There are recurring characters in all the stories – Antonio Aragon, the Islands owner, his work partner and lover, Kenderly, and Mario, the extravagant and outrageous events manager.

Each story is based around a couple, either arriving separately or together, who find themselves living out fantasies they didn’t even realise they had.  Don’t misunderstand, these fantasies don’t tend towards the kink (well not all) but more to do with finding or rekindling love in exciting and erotic ways.

Great series and a brilliant way to introduce new authors to your reading selection. I will definitely be reading some of the books by the other authors now.

The Complete Knight Trilogy – Knight #1-3 by Kitty French

Lucien Knight is the enigmatic CEO of Knight Industries, and he is looking for a new PA. When an envelope sealed with a kiss arrives on his desk he knows he has found her.

Sophie Black is bored.  Bored of her work as a building contractors PA, bored of a marriage to man who she is convinced is having an affair, and bored with the routine of dinner, T.V., bed (and not the fun kind of bed). With the help of her friend Kara she sends the application to Knight Industries.

Lucien knows that the shy, reserved woman in front of him has a wild streak he just needs to help her unleash it. When he finds out her husband is a cheating no-good liar, Lucien decides to broaden Sophie’s horizons.  Being the owner of several Adult Entertainment clubs comes in handy to loosen her up and show her that life can be anything but dull.

With a past filled with pain and no plans for his future, Lucien soon finds that he is not only the teacher but also the student, and Sophie will teach him far more about love than he ever dreamed possible.

REVIEW

Kitty French is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.  This is vastly different to the first book of hers that I read – The Skeletons of Scarborough House – but no less enjoyable.

Lucien’s character is brilliant.  The ultimate CEO of the adult industry, he has all the charm and charisma to go with it.  I love his loyalty above all else.  The one moment where he tries to purge Sophie from his thoughts I was quietly screaming ‘NOOOO!’ but it all ends well and when the love emerges there is no stopping him.

Sophie epitomises many women who find themselves stuck in a hum drum marriage with the daily routine of life.  For Sophie, getting out of it was essential.  Her husband was a lying cheater who thought that she would just forgive and forget after 3 years with a mistress, fortunately for Sophie she had Lucien on her side.  I know that technically she also cheated on her husband and she was riddled with guilt because of it, but seriously…he deserved it!

Book One brought the pair together and apart.

Book Two brings them back together and delves deeper into Lucien’s past and forges the future for them.

Book Three confirms their union and brings a little love Kara’s way.

A great series based around a taboo subject but with a touch humour along the way.

Anchor Me – Stark Trilogy #4 by J. Kenner

Nikki and Damien are ready to move on with their future.  Nikki’s own business is taking off and the demons of the past seem to be quiet.  However, when tragedy strikes a vicious blow can the couple survive the fallout to follow.  With more secrets being kept Nikki finds her strength wavering and the one person she could turn to is holding back. Can Damien be the anchor that keeps her strong or is their relationship sinking?

REVIEW

Exciting continuation of the series.  I love Damien and Nikki’s story and have followed them through thick and thin.  Damien’s love for Nikki has never waivered and he shows her at every turn, even when things are at there darkest.  Nikki is dependant on Damien to give her what she needs in preference to cutting but during this story he holds back, causing doubts to rise within Nikki which drives her even closer to the edge.  Everything is done for a reason.

Damien never disappoints.  I have been a fan of his since the opening book and the love, trust and pride he has in Nikki only reinforces my like of his character.  He has had his own stuff to deal with and has had to keep secrets all his life so it’s no wonder he finds it hard to open up, even to Nikki.

Although I really like Nikki, I was actually in agreement with her with regards the familiy issue.  I’m not saying that she wouldn’t make a great mum and that having a child may alleviate some of her anxieties, but I also know (from experience of being a mum) that children can make life a lot more stressful.  Getting her desire to cut whenever life doesn’t go quite right under control would definitely be a starting point as several times throughout this story she reached for a sharp object, so I can see why she would be concerned.

I hope there will be more in this series even in the form of novellas (there is a 4.1 out already). I don’t think Nikki and Damien’s story is finished yet.

Stark Trilogy #3.5, #3.6, #3.7, #3.8, #3.9, #3.10, #3.11 by J. Kenner

 

The continuing saga of Damien Stark and Nikki Fairchild.

From wedding drama to birthday surprises, with a Valentines Day treasure hunt thrown in, Damien and Nikki share their love and battle the past that still haunts them both in this set of Novellas.

REVIEW

If you have loved Nikki and Damien’s story so far you will be delighted with this collection of novellas that track there lives through the following two years.  There is a wedding that is not to be missed followed by an interesting Honeymoon. Valentines Day brings out Damien’s romantic side and can Nikki finally keep a secret from him when his birthday approaches.  All our favourite characters are back to share in the drama along with a few new ones – their stories are told in the companion series of Stark International, Most Wanted and S.I.N.  Also some not-so-welcome familiar faces pop up when they are least expected or wanted.

These books really are a must before you read Anchor Me, the forth installment for Nikki and Damien.

The Stark Trilogy – Stark Trilogy #1-3 by J. Kenner

Damien Stark, multi-billionaire and former professional tennis player, can have any women he wants but for some reason, unknown to her, he has set his sights on Nikki Fairchild.

Relentless and very persuasive, Damien offers Nikki a deal she cannot resist.  It is supposed to be their secret. One week. One portrait. One Million Dollars.

As sparks fly between them and a connection neither can deny surfaces it becomes apparent that not everyone is thrilled by their relationship and when unknown forces and secrets threaten to tear them apart, will their passion and attraction be enough to get them through.

REVIEW

Great series.

Damien Stark is the hot billionaire who has secrets in his past.  Nikki Fairchild is the former pageant princess-turned-computer geek with secrets of her own.

The connection between Damien and Nikki is filled with passion and sexual tension but when that tension ignites they are on fire.  Damien is Nikki’s anchor and Nikki is Damien’s comfort.  The two work well together and despite the external influences that try to break them apart they only grow stronger.

Throughout the three book series we meet some really interesting characters – Jamie, Ollie, Evelyn and Blaine – each of which brings their own special personality to the stories.

There are some very steamy sex scenes and a light sprinkling of BDSM.  The chemistry that engulfs these two through the pages is evident and the growing love they have for each other is beautiful. Damien will do anything to protect Nikki and ensure her safety, Nikki will do anything for Damien – period!

The original trilogy of this series consists of the novels – Release Me, Claim Me and Complete Me.  I highly recommend this series if you have been a fan of either Fifty Shades or Crossfire. Damien could definitely hold his own with Christian and Gideon.

There are several accompanying novellas and due to popular demand there has also been a forth full novel recently released, all to be read and reviewed soon.
