The Misters Series, Five,  and Mr & Mrs by J. A. Huss

Ten years ago the lives of five wealthy and respected college students was turned upside down by an accusation of rape. Dubbed the Misters of Brown, Mr Perfect, Mr Romantic, Mr Corporate, Mr Mysterious and Mr Match have managed to keep under the radar but now they are finding their pasts are coming back to haunt them.

Finding love was never in their futures but, as each Mister finds a woman, can he keep her from the danger that follows him.  Can coming back together to save their women (and their women saving them!) bring an end to their past and finally put their ghosts to rest.

Danger, mystery, lies and betrayal blend together with love, romance and friendship to make a compelling series that should not be missed.

Joining the Misters is Five, who appears frequently and plays a major role throughout the Mister series.

Finishing the series in a spectacular way is Mr & Mrs.  All the Misters are getting married. One island, six grooms, six brides, children, kittens and pigs, what could possibly go wrong?!

REVIEW

Fantastically brilliant from start to finish. All seven books read in 2 weeks proves that I could not put them down.  As soon as one was finished it was straight onto the next.  More of the plot and mystery is revealed with each book and although they are classed as a standalone…seriously, why would you only want to read to one?

To get the most out of this series they really should be read in order although I am undecided where I would put Five.  His book brings a lot of answers and although it is labelled 0.5 and is technically a prequel, I read him after Mr Match but before Mr & Mrs as his book brings a lot of answers that could potentially spoil elements of the Mister books.

The female characters are all perfectly matched to their Mister and the connection between each is….HOT!  Hot Kisses, Hot Sex, just HOT!

If you have never read this author before then I can highly recommend her.  She has lots of series and most seem to be connected.  I would suggest reading The complete Rook and Ronin series first (see blog post) as the Mister series does contain some of their children but in all honesty it is not essential. There is a very good chance that if you read this series first you will want to go back and find out what happened with the Flynn’s, the Shrike’s and the Aston’s anyway.

So much potential for future books…Can’t wait to see what comes next!

Thanks Julie for bringing us these wonderful characters.

The Billionaire Shifter’s True Alpha – Billionaire Shifters Club #5) by Diana Seere

Sophia Stanton enjoys the finer things in life, especially men and has no plans of giving up her pleasures any time soon.  That is until she her the BEAT.

Zach Hayden should not be the man he is today. Well, essentially he is no longer a man. Following an accident at work, Zach now has the abilities to Shift, but following months of rehabilitation the Stanton family are not convinced of his adaption to their world.

In the care of Sophia, Zach is taken to their ranch in Montana where the two work on the conventions of his shifting and their sexual attraction. Not knowing who to trust, Zach flees and soon becomes the target for a rogue shifter. Can Sophia save Zach before it is too late or is it Zach who needs to save Sophia?

REVIEW

Once again a brilliant continuation to the Stanton family saga.  Sophia is the head-strong, female version of her twin Derry (prior to him meeting Jess) and can hold her own with any man. Zach, however, is not any man.  Considering himself a misfit, a freak of nature, he refuses to believe that the connection between himself and Sophia is what it is. Fate is a fickle thing and even harder for a scientist to come to terms with.

The characters are fantastic and work so well together to give an entertaining, thrilling and sometime amusing tale. It is great to see all the Stanton’s back together.  Lilah and Gavin are having twins, Edward and Molly are happily engaged, Derry and Jess have their own surprises, and Asher is blatantly in love with Sam but refuses to acknowledge it…can’t wait for his story!

Zach is a pivotal character in the ongoing battle between the Stanton’s and Tomas Nagy as they fight for the good of the Shifter world and I look forward to seeing how this plot will progress in the next story.

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.

MIDNIGHT’S KISS by Victoria Zak & DL Roan

YOURS FOR THE WEEKEND by Lana Williams.

UNDERTONES by Xyla Turner

SUMMER IN PARADISE by J.D. Monroe

COWBOY IN PARADISE by Hildie McQueen

FRANKLIN’S HEART by Olivia Gaines

A GAME OF HEARTS by Tigris Eden

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.
