Leather & Lace: Trident Security Book 1

 

18+ Kristen Anders is starting her life over again after divorcing her
cheating husband. An author of several ‘vanilla’ romance novels, she spiced
up her latest one involving BDSM and it became a best-seller. Now she’s
researching the subject for her follow-up book and manages to get a tour of
the elite, private sex club, The Covenant, and runs into the one person she
never expected to see there.

 

Devon “Devil Dog” Sawyer is intrigued by a cute brunette he meets at a
friend’s Irish pub and does something he hasn’t done in over twelve years.
He asks her out on a date. While it might seem strange to most, Devon’s
only relationships since he was twenty-four have started and ended in the
same place–a BDSM club.

 

What was supposed to be a single weekend of mutual pleasure and dirty sex,
turns into something more. But while they fight their growing connection, a
killer has Devon in his sights and Kristen may end up as collateral damage.
Will they survive with their lives and hearts intact?

all, more hot and steamy romance!
51ivYomr5HL._AC_US160_.jpg

 

Twelve years ago, eighteen-year-old Ben ‘Boomer’ Michaelson’s world had
fallen apart. Not only had his best friend, Alex Maier, been killed, but
Alex’s family had perished as well, including his seventeen-year-old
sister, Katerina. The car accident occurred less than thirty-six hours
after Ben and Kat had declared their love for each other, leaving him
devastated at the loss of the only woman who’d ever held his heart in her
hands.

 

After spending the past twelve years with her father in the Witness
Protection Program, Kat finds herself all alone in the world. The last
thing she wants to do is put her high-school sweetheart in danger, but he’s
the only person she has left who she trusts with her life. They need to
find out who is after her and why. She just hopes they are both still alive
when the mystery is solved.

 

Ben, now a former Navy SEAL working for a private security company, is
shocked to find his new client is a ghost from his past. He knows he can’t
refuse to help her, but when it’s over, he will have to let her go. She
deserves better than the man he’s become.

 

Will Ben and Kat survive? Or will he once again have to bury the only woman
he’s ever loved?

Shelby Whitman beat cancer several years ago, but the resulting physical
and emotional damage left her feeling like less than a real woman. The
comfort she found in the BDSM community brightened her world again,
however, she kept the Doms at a distance. Play was fine. Relationships were
not. And that was fine until Master Parker caught her eye. Now, her cancer
has returned and she refuses to be a burden to anyone…especially the one
man who has crawled his way into her heart.

 

Parker Christiansen has craved the perky sub for as long as he can
remember, but Shelby has refused to negotiate a scene with him and he has
no idea why. When he finds out she is secretly going through chemotherapy,
he insists that she move in with him. She needs a Dom to take care of her
and he is more than up for the task.

 

Can Parker convince Shelby that he loves her no matter what and if they
only have this time together, they should make the best of it?

Topping the Alpha: Trident Security Series Book 4
51S32egi0IL.jpg

Trident Security operative, Jake Donovan, has been a member of the BDSM
lifestyle since his teenage years. Starting as a submissive, he eventually
became a Dom, but a brutal incident, years ago, changed Jake’s life
forever. Unable to shake the ghosts of his past, he’s avoided giving his
heart to anyone for sixteen years. Until Nick.

 

Navy SEAL, Nick Sawyer, knew it was probably a bad idea to get involved
with his brothers’ friend and employee, but there was something about Jake
that drew him in. While his brothers also owned a private BDSM club, The
Covenant, Nick never understood what attracted people to the lifestyle. He
had nothing against it, but it just wasn’t for him. Until Jake.

 

An old missing person’s case has Jake running to rescue a teenage girl and
Nick volunteers to watch his back. But when things go awry, Jake must
confront his past, before he can ever think about a future…one that,
hopefully, includes Nick.

Amy’s Review:

5 STARS!!!!!

I stop everything to read a new release from Vivian Winslow. I love this series and all the characters. I couldn’t wait to read about Poppy’s story. Through the rest of the series you get to see Poppy a lot and get to know her but she is one of those characters that you always want to know more about. Why she is the way she is or what made her that way. Well Wild Poppy answered half of my questions about her and there is another one to come!!

Seeing Poppy at a younger age was really different. I know her as this older, stronger person and to see her before she was that woman was nice. Seeing the pain and struggles that started out her life’s path to the woman she is in the rest of the books made me feel more connected with her. My heart broke for Poppy several times while reading. The way her family did her is unthinkable. I’m glad I got to know Poppy before this book. I know that she survived and made it through regardless of the struggles. And I also see the pattern as to what she put her daughters through in the previous books.

This is a must read series for me. I feel invested in each one of their lives and I can’t wait for the next book to get more insight to Poppy.

 

Author Bio:

Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job and her incurable wanderlust. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years.

New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of fashion, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her eating at the newest restaurant in her beloved Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach.

Blog Tour w/ Review: Uncovering Camila by Vivian Winslow

Book: Uncovering Camila

Author: Vivian Winslow

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Synopsis


Camila Cohen is a highly ambitious and driven third-year NYU law student who works as a part-time bartender to help pay her way through school. She prefers no-strings attached relationships, afraid that anything serious could get in the way of her goals. But when chef Eliseo Perez ditches her for a job in Miami, she realizes even a casual arrangement can leave you feeling burned. Just as Camila’s close to accepting a position at the high-powered law firm of Sullivan & Moore (more appropriately known by its initials, S & M), her uncle Arthur, the head of the Cohen Real Estate dynasty, makes a proposal that compels Camila to question the career path she’d always assumed would be right for her. As she attempts to balance her busy final year of law school with her bartending job, what should have been a random Tinder date for a hot hook-up leads to something unexpected. Meeting the incredibly brilliant and handsome Marshall James forces Camila to face her greatest fears and realize that creating a life for herself means making decisions that could potentially hurt the ones she loves.

Amy’s Review:

4 Stars!!!!

I get so excited when I see a email from Vivian Winslow informing me of a new book. I have been following her since her first novella released and get excited to read her newest releases. All her books are about very strong and independent women. Women who take no shit from men and can do it without a man. I love women like that. Camila was no different. She had her life in motion and didn’t need a man to fill up her time. She was okay with how things were. That is until Marshall shows up.

Thanks to Camila’s cousin she meets Marshall. Tall, dark and handsome, he is smart as a whip and is the perfect match for Camila. There are a lot of ups and downs, moving forward and moving backwards but in the end it all comes together. And let’s not forget the amazing hot sex these two have. OMG! They are on fire together. HOT!

I loved seeing the Baron girls and Poppy included. I can never get enough of them and it’s always exciting to see a glimpse of how things are turning out for them and their families. I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Sexcerpt
Camila turns her body to face Marshall. Lifting her hand, she runs a finger down the side of his face. He catches her hand and trails kisses around her palm. From there he runs his tongue up her index finger and sucks. He continues to suck on her fingers relentlessly, each one stirring her craving for sex even more than the last. She smiles to herself. This dare will be far easier than I thought.
She sits astride Marshall on the bench, careful not to tear her dress. “You sure about this?” He asks.
“Why do you ask?” Camila rubs his cock from outside his trousers. “You want to hear me say that I want to be with you?”
“Yeah, I do,” he replies before crushing his lips against Camila’s. Like last time, this kiss blows her away with its intensity, as he alternates between tender caresses and biting her bottom lip. Unlike last time, there’s an undercurrent of desperation behind it because they both know the weekend will end and their City lives will resume, where neither one will be able to touch the other. Somehow that prospect of it ending before it even begins drives them further into the moment, passion superseding all reason and doubt.
Camila doesn’t speak right away. She wants her kisses to speak her desire for her. For her tongue to find his and to stroke it the way he stroked her pussy that morning in her apartment. She brings her hands to his face, gripping him with the intensity of a lover who’s saying both hello and good-bye. It’s truly liberating to own this level of freedom with someone knowing that the present is all they have. She can feel his erection grow and press against her cunt, growing slicker with every kiss and lick against her lips. Camila draws his left hand under her dress so he can feel her desire.
Marshall moans into the next kiss, taking her deeper as he buries two fingers inside of Camila. She cries out silently, only a jagged breath shattering the stillness around them. Time has literally ceased to exist in this moment between the two lovers as they continue to climb toward their mutual pleasure. Camila lowers the zipper of his pants, freeing his cock. Marshall hisses as she begins to stroke him. What he wouldn’t give to feel himself inside her warm mouth right now. He groans as he bites down on Camila’s lips, remembering how it felt when she took him deep inside her. He starts to penetrate Camila faster. He wants to fuck her this way and so many others right here on this bench. How perfect and poetic to have someone like Camila on the Baron estate where he’d lost his virginity to Dahlia, the eldest of the twin daughters, all those years ago in the pool house. To bring such light to a place that represents so many memories from his past fills him with such a sense of peace he doesn’t want it to end.
Marshall takes out his fingers and licks them before putting them in Camila’s mouth. She sucks on them hard. The idea that these fingers were just inside her pussy drives her further into her lust. She lowers herself over his cock, prepared for how deep he would go and how far it would stretch her. This time her eyes are open, watching the look of pleasure on his face as she takes him fully.
His moan is louder than it should be, but neither of them cares. She rides him slowly this time, with greater purpose than before. Each time, she wants to feel him deep inside her, and he wants to savor it too. Marshall pulls Camila tight to him, burying his groans into her mouth, his kisses conveying a warmth and gratitude for tonight, for that morning in her apartment, and for feeling so fucking good at this moment.
He buries his face in her breasts as he continues to thrust into her. Her cries match his. Both are so close to coming, but neither of them is ready to. The reality after the fact will hit them both, and they want to push it away as long as they can. Marshall wraps his arms around her tighter, unable to edge any longer. “I’m going to come,” he whispers.
Camila nods as she rides him harder, lifting herself off, and slamming down so she feels it in her G-spot. She draws a deep breath, finally reaching that deep abyss as Marshall stops thrusting and lets himself go.

Blog Tour/ Review: Beautiful Distraction by J.C. Reed

 
★★  Beautiful Distraction is LIVE! ★★ 
Only $2.99 or Free on KU

I wish I could stop this one moment, capture it, because I know it won’t last. Because a guy like him doesn’t stay in a woman’s life. He breezes through and leaves only havoc behind.

From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed, comes a new standalone novel.Kellan Boyd always gets what he wants—except that one infuriating city girl who bumped into his new chick magnet sports car, dared to call him a jerk, and threw his pity check in his face.

Fast forward three months later.
When Ava Cross suddenly knocks on his door in the middle of a storm, soaking wet and in dire need of help, he’s determined to settle old scores and finally get her between the sheets where she belongs.

Ava knows Kellan is a complex man with a dark past and a wild reputation he can’t deny. Forced to stay, Ava begins a desperate search for the truth about the one man she wants to despise and quickly discovers that the passion she feels for him isn’t just deep…it’s dangerous to her heart.

Kellan is a beautiful distraction. When the traps of her own weakness stand in the way, Ava is faced with one choice only: peel off the layers of a man who’s a wild cowboy at heart.

Author’s note – Beautiful Distraction is a full-length, standalone novel with no cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Jessica’s Review

4 STARS

There were so many things I really liked about Beautiful Distraction! I laughed quite a bit over the banter and situations Ava found herself in. JC Reed brought the heat with Kellan. He is strong, mysterious and not very forthcoming. As Ava and Kellan have one misadventure after another, you can feel the tension rising and it’s only a matter of time before the lid blows off. Mandy is everything a best friend should be. She’s a hot mess, pulling Ava out of her shell and into the world.

Beautiful Distraction was a fast paced, easy book to get into and enjoy. Although there were parts at the end that felt a bit rushed and tied up a bit too quickly, it didn’t take away from the overall feel and story. I look forward to the rest of the Boyd brothers and their adventures. I’m hoping that Mandy gets her story as well.

QUOTES:

Friggin’ unbelieable
Out of all the places Mandy could have taken me,
she’s just managed to find the one place with the one guy
I hoped to never see again.
Judging from the way he acted, almost kicking me off

his property, he was pissed.
Like, really pissed.
Like I-had-no-sex-pissed.

Who says a wild heart can’t be tamed?

For years, I lived for the job and let it control me. Violence was all I knew. I protected, killed, and served. My name is Blake Evans, one of the best undercover cops in the country. I thought I was about to live a quiet life on my ranch in Wyoming until an old friend showed up and changed everything. He brought me her, Hadley Rivers, country music sensation and the one woman I couldn’t have. I didn’t want her but she had me completely roped in.

My job is to protect her, to keep her away from some psycho who wants her for himself. However, there’s more to her story than I was led to believe. I promised to keep her safe and I won’t back down . . . even if I have to die trying. I can’t let him have her.

Review: One Simple Mistake By Deanndra Hall

One Simple Mistake (Citadel, #1)One Simple Mistake by Deanndra Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh My Hotness!

This is my first book by Deanndra Hall but it won’t be my last! I found myself quickly drawn into the complex dynamics between everyone. I know this is book one of the spin off series, so I will be going back and reading her other series, Love Under Construction. I think it would have made it easier to place who is who, and quicker for me to delve into the story of Doug and Vivian. That said, I was fully able to figure out who went with who & by chapter 2 I was fully engaged.
Doug is complex, hard working and struggling with being in love with someone he can’t have. Vivian has tried to find love and been left behind by everyone. The person she is desperately in love with happens to be married to her boss and friend. When an embarassing encounter gives Vivian and Doug a moment to bond, they hope to find what all of their friends have. Along the way, they must learn to trust each other and themselves. Along the way there are missteps and mistakes, things to work through and accept.

I loved how open Deanndra’s characters are. They weren’t perfect, cookie cutter copies. The story line is unique and stayed floating around in my head and heart for days after reading One Simple Mistake. I am so thankful I took a chance and opened this book!!!

Spotlight and Interview: Jake (The Baxters Book 4) by L. Ann Marie

jack

Amazon

Jake’s been working with the Baxters since they were on SEAL Team 10. That’s more than ten years. He’s watched their kids grow up and his other team members and coworkers getting married.

He wants all of that too. He’s sick of picking up random women and one-night stands. He wants a family and he wants it yesterday.

 *Content Warning: includes graphic language and sex. Intended for mature audiences 18+

EXCERPT (HOT):

I never seduced a man, but I’ve read enough romance novels to know how to do it and I’m going to try. I know he wants me, Mitch says I need to let him know I’m ready. That’s the plan. Before the party he’ll know that I’m ready and we can go to the party relaxed. I’ve had enough sleepless nights. I don’t really know how to take care of myself so I can get through a night. How do you ask a question like that? I even tried to Google it. I’m not waiting anymore. I want relief like the books I read say it can be. Mitch handed me a book, but it’s about men, it doesn’t tell me a damn thing about me. I read the whole thing twice, but I don’t have any experience to apply it to.

The floor shakes and I know he’s on his bike and he’s home. I’m nervous and excited all at the same time. I meet him at the door and he kisses me like I’m leaving on a trip. I love it. When he stands we’re breathing heavy and smiling at each other. I pull him to the couch where I have our drinks ready, but he says he needs to have a clear head for a meeting later.

Damn! ‘The party is off?’ He pulls me to his lap and tells me no, but he needs to talk to some people there. That doesn’t sound so bad. I feel like I’m on a roller coaster with my emotions spiking and falling. I smile at him and go for broke. ‘I planned on seducing you before the party but find that all my plans are jumbled in my head.’

He looks serious. ‘I have no problem waiting until you are sure.’

‘I’m sure. I’m not willing to try satisfying myself another damn night. I don’t know how to get to where I can sleep.’

He holds my hands and lifts my chin so I look at him. ‘We can get you satisfied so you sleep for the night.’ He’s smiling.

Dammit! I pull my hands away and move onto the couch. ‘How do I get you to make love to me?’ I sign mad. He laughs, making me pissed.

He turns my face to him again. ‘Just ask.’ He lifts me up and carries me to my bedroom so fast now I’m nervous and excited again. When he puts me down he stands back and signs. ‘If you get scared or it doesn’t feel right you have to tell me. You need a way to let me know if I’m not looking at you or your hands can’t tell me.’ He’s watching me, but I didn’t think this through. I shrug and put my hands up because I have no idea. ‘You’ll want to tell me no, and then yes, you’ll feel things you’ve never experienced and want things you can’t express. You trust me enough for this, but I need to know when something doesn’t work.’

I nod and think. ‘Pinch?’

He laughs. ‘That will work, depending on whether you’re a hellcat or not.’ I don’t know what to say to that, so I just look at him. He bends and kisses me again. Everything leaves me until I feel his hands moving to my shorts. I match his movements and unzip his pants. I feel his vibration against my head and touch his face. He pulls back. ‘I moan because it feels good for your hands to be on my cock.’ I nod. Keeping my hand on his face, I slide my other hand over him and squeeze. He does it again, closing his eyes halfway. This is what the books call half-mast. I do it again and he pulls my hand away. “If you keep that up I’ll never make it in you.” I read and look at his eyes. He’s happy. I can’t help but smile. I have control over his body. I’m feeling pretty good until his hands move and my shirt is gone. That was damn quick. I’m excited and breathing heavy as his hands move up to my breasts. Holy shit, this is way better than my hands. I’m undressed and on the bed, and I can’t remember getting here. He makes my head dizzy with kisses and his hands on me.

Jake

I’m not going to make it. She’s making sounds deep in her throat. She’s beautiful, just as I imagined, with curves in all the right places. I want to look at her, but I don’t think she’ll let me get away with that. She has no hesitation in me seeing her body and hasn’t taken her hands off me. I’m talking to her, but I have no idea if she understands. With her hands on me I’m close to losing it. I pull her hands away and she opens her eyes. “I’m going to get you ready for me, Sam I am. If you need me to stop pinch me.”

She nods, but her eyes are glazed and she’s panting. I kiss her lips and make my way down her beautiful fuckin’ curves. She’s going to love this. Taking her heavy tits in my hands, I squeeze and suck her nipple in. She cries out that low pitched sound and my dick jumps like it’s trained for it. Her hand holds my head to her, letting me know she likes this. I skate my hand lower and she lifts her hips. Fuckin’ nice. I can’t wait anymore. I kiss down to where my mouth needs to be. She’s got a small patch pointing me to her folds, sexy as hell. When my tongue swipes her clit she’s lifting her hips off the bed with that sound that’s driving me fuckin’ nuts. I spread her legs and taste her from the bottom up. I am so fucked. I know I won’t ever get enough.

With her hands on my head I miss my hair. I know she’d be pulling it. I moan and she presses my head down harder, making me smile. I slide my finger in her. She lifts her hips again and her noise is louder and longer. Fuck. I need to get her to keep still, but I’m not stopping to teach her now. She’s moving with my finger and tongue and I let her get there her way. Her body tightens up and I slide a second finger in, getting more sounds. She’s squeezing my head hard, making me work faster. I fuckin’ love it. Her body starts shaking and the noise is different. I lift my mouth off her and she cries out, pushing me back to her pussy. I like that she wants more and add a finger, stretching her open for me.

She lets out a wail, making me smile. I keep pumping my fingers in her, feeling her grabbing onto them. I slow my tongue down and move to taste her. Fuck! I’m ready to come with just her taste. When she calms I move up her so I can see her face. She looks like she’s surprised and dizzy all at the same time. I kiss her lips and pull away. “Next time I want to watch you come. It’s fuckin’ sexy as hell.”
