I’d like to preface this review by stating that Marata Eros has been one of my favorites since I read A Terrible Love. I’ve been completely hooked on her writing ever since. The webs she weaves with her words simply blows me away every time.
Club Alpha is no different.
A prologue powerfully written with so few words.
The diversity of characters in Club Alpha so refreshing
The mother of all “Holy S***! I didn’t see that coming” moments
Suspense written so well that you feel as if you’re watching a scary movie ~ where you cover your eyes but peek through your fingers because you have to know what happens next, even though it feels like your heart is going to beat right out of your chest.
A proper, well-spoken H that you can’t help but fall in love with.
An h that you hope with all that you have gets her happy ever after.
Along with a cast of characters that make Club Alpha a fantastic read!

She’s ready for even more.…

When Abby West discovered her submissive desires, she felt like she was born anew. But lately, her Dominant husband hasn’t been the demanding Master who once fulfilled her every passion.

Nathaniel knows that Abby belongs to him completely, but even he can’t ignore the pleasure on her face as they get to know their new BDSM group. They’ve invited Nathaniel to guide their group to a new level, and he’s promised to show them the way, even as he recommits to fulfilling his beautiful submissive wife’s every desire.

Nathaniel and Abigail are back. We’ve read about their involvement in BDSM groups and Abby’s fantasies are expanding to include public viewers. We watch how Nathaniel and Abby cope with this change. We experience their fears with them and their doubts in being “enough” for one another. How they bring out the sensuality in scenes captivates me as well as how Nathaniel always has a purpose or lesson for Abby in their scenes and when she’s collared. I was hoping for more family interactions as it seems they have loads of alone time while their children are with their nanny. How Nathaniel and Abby work together in ensuring safety for their groups proves their level of dedication to their friends and that everyone feels comfortable. Their communication is at a level that they feel comfortable speaking their minds but are also great listeners as well. They feed off of one another’s suggestions and problem solve effectively as a team. Give this a try and find your next book crush!

Against the Ropes by Jeanette Murray


Against the Ropes by Jeanette Murray

Published October 6, 2015


Book Details

The author of Below the Belt continues her First to Fight series with a novel of one Marine’s battle to come out on top—in life and love…

As a troubled teen, Gregory Higgs channeled his energy into boxing instead of breaking the law. The ring gave him purpose and something to strive for. So did the Marines. Combining the two seemed like a natural fit.

Another natural fit? Reagan Robilard, the sweet athlete liaison who keeps all the fighters out of trouble and manages their PR—a job that gets more challenging when someone digs up the truth about Greg’s not-so-shiny past after equipment is vandalized at the gym.

Even if it wasn’t her job, Reagan can’t let Greg take the fall. Because passion doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to matters of the heart…
ibooksbn-nookamazon buttonkobogoodreads button


Greg is on the Marine boxing team and Reagan is the teams liaison. Reagan is escaping from her family that cares little about what she dreams for her future and Greg is doing his all to forget his past. Greg is sweet and gentlemanly at the speed in which he approaches Reagan.  They want a solid foundation for a relationship, so this aspect I enjoyed a lot in this novel. Against the Ropes ebbed and flowed for me. The vandalizing suspect is at it again, with no culprit in mind. Those moments would hike up the excitement as would the alone moments between Greg and Reagan. Other moments were fluffy and redundant; the constant practicing, the description of Reagan’s attire. I wanted more answers in terms of the suspect and I wanted Reagan to stand up for herself sooner than she did. Overall this was a good read, and Greg is easy to swoon over. Give this a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 3.5 stars

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera.
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players.
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.
I’d date an athlete.
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it. It never is.

One King’s Way by Samantha Young


One King’s Way by Samantha Young

Book Details

The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street returns to the bar where it all began with Braden and Joss for a white-hot new novella full of passion and drama.

When he’s not working at the club, Craig Lanaghan looks out for his mother and little sisters. So when it comes to women, all he wants is a good time. But once Rain Alexander walks into his life, there’s no denying that this woman could be worth much more than a one-night stand….

Rain’s lifelong regret is having left her sister Darcy alone years ago with a guardian who turned out to be abusive. So when Darcy’s boyfriend publicly humiliates her in a cruel way, Rain’s overprotective instincts kick in and she follows him to Club 39—where she meets a guy who just might be her perfect match.

The chemistry between Rain and Craig is explosive, but Rain is out for revenge, and refuses to be sidetracked by flirtation. As things between them heat up, she’ll have to make a heartbreaking choice between giving in to the man of her dreams or putting her sister’s happiness first….
ibooksbn-nookamazon buttonkindle_ukkobogoodreads button


Craig is a one night stand man. A realist. Rain wants a man to think the world of her. A romantic. This is a novella, so their story moves quick, but not horribly so. The time line is overall fitting and the push and pull made it realistic. I could see these characters as my friends. I wanted to join them for a pint, or a glass of wine. There were swoon worthy moments along with moments of intense frustration and hurt. Craig’s realization of watching one while they sleep had me in tears. We get appearances from some of our favorites in previous Dublin Street installments. I look forward to future Dublin Street novels to catch more of Craig and Rain. Give this a try and find your next book crush! Rating: 4 stars

Book Details

Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man—Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

Burdened by a lifetime of horror and heartbreak, amateur fighter Trace doesn’t want to want Ember. His deep self-loathing keeps him from having any meaningful relationships, but Ember is an itch he can’t scratch. The two push and pull, slowly crumbling their walls, seemingly brought together by fate, because the turmoil that haunts their pasts is interlinked in undeniable ways. But can these two fighters finally lay down their arms?

In Beautifully Damaged, L.A. Fiore delves into deep scars and lets love and forgiveness uncover redemption.
amazon buttonkindle_ukgoodreads button


Beautifully Damaged was a thoroughly enjoyable story by ‘new to me’ author LA Fiore. The main characters, Ember and Trace were endearing and in the moment I was captured by their story. The writing was good and there were points in the plot development that I thought were incomplete, but came full circle by the end. Trace is damaged by his past which he won’t open up about but the reader truly gets a feel for how it has formed his present.
What I liked: the second half turned up the suspense and mystery. What it was missing for me: the “feels” which could have made the book more memorable and a little love overkill.
I enjoyed Beautifully Damaged in the moment, but felt there was just a little something missing that would have made the story more memorable. There is nothing like a story that lingers in the mind of the reader long after the final page is turned and Beautifully Damaged had almost all the ingredients to make it one! I will be picking up the rest of the series to see where this author takes me. Give this a try and make Trace your new book crush!! 3.5 Stars

Book Description
Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.
Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!
When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.
It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.

Amazon| Smashwords


Author Kahlen Aymes brings us a new book crush in Alex Avery and he’s met his match in Angel.

Their story is slowly revealed and builds through the pages with mystery, suspense and a sexual chemistry that singes the pages and the anticipation of what’s to come is delectable.

That was a deliciously naughty pool she should have jumped into head first if she didn’t have her wits about her. As her back story comes into play it becomes a little more understanding why she slowly waded in.
Angel and Alex’s banter is snarky and hilarious! The tensions builds so thick you can cut it with a knife! The writing, flow and development of this book were refined. Give this a try and meet your new book crush! I look forward to continuing Angel and Alex’s story! 4.0 Stars

I absolutely enjoyed this book. It was recommended to me by a friend when I had hit the blahs with reading of late. So much of the same old, I needed something to give my passion for reading a pick me up. Hollywood & Vine was a refreshing cleaver, entertaining and well written story! Even the subtly of the title I enjoyed and it left me with a little smirk. What I liked: the characters, the storyline and the dialogue. What I didn’t like: the slower pace at times and the length. It could have been a little bit of a faster pace without sacrificing any of the good stuff. Josie is a character that at first I wasn’t sure I was going to like. She didn’t seem too deep initially, but the more I got to know her through author Olivia Evans, I found out hope much I loved her; strong, stubborn but frustrating as well. Anders was the stereotypical Hollywood playboy who was at the same time aggravating, arrogant, and endearing. Let’s not forget handsome and super sexy too. Their relationship was not all sweet and sappy, which I appreciated. It was a ride filled with drama, insecurities and all! I loved the banter in this book. Anders and Josie’s conversations felt so real, I could have been watching them on the big screen. The writing style made me, as the reader, feel like I was a part of the story. I also LOVED Madison and the back and forth she and Josie had throughout the book. Their quirky friendship is the type that every woman would be lucky to find! Give this a try and have a full-out Hollywood Book Crush! 4.0 Stars
