BOOK REVIEW: Burn (Blood & Roses #3) by Callie Hart

Bodybuilder

SYNOPSIS

Sloane

I’m not safe.

I haven’t been safe for a while now.

I ran to Zeth for protection, but Zeth is in danger himself. With Julio on one side, and the leader of the Widow Makers MC on the other, the smartest thing to do would be to run. I’ve been running long enough, though.
This is the closest I’ve come to finding my sister in two years.
I can’t back down now.

Zeth

My right hand man’s being tortured in the basement.

The guy who tried to buy Sloane’s virginity is burning rubber in our direction.
My psychotic boss is on a mission to find me, and the girl I’m supposed to be keeping safe has landed herself right in the middle of all of this.
Just another breezy weekend in the Californian desert.

What could possibly go wrong in the next 48 hours?

REVIEW

ASHLEY’S REVIEW: 5 STARS

Burns is the third installment in the Blood & Roses’s series.

WHOA!! Twists and turns and SO MANY new revelations that I couldn’t find a decent place to stop reading, so I just had to finish Burn in one day! This series keeps getting better and better with each installment!

Characters that were talked about in the first 2 books are finally brought to light and then there are new characters and plots brought into the dynamic that we have yet to learn about!

Anything and everything could go wrong in the search for Alexis, Sloane’s sister. Zeth had the rescue all planned out and everything was going smoothly, until Sloane shows up unwelcomed. Now he has to deal with the fall out and make Julio Perez believe that Sloane, now with the alias of Naomi Hawthorne, is just his hooker for the “event” that Julio is having. Will they be able to pull this off and not get caught?

In between all the craziness and new dilemmas, Zeth and Sloane’s relationship is budding even further!

“You’re on emotional lockdown. When you’re around me, you do everything and anything you can to not feel anything whatsoever…” -Sloane

“…And you’re not the girl stupid enough to let me do anything. You’re the girl stupid enough to not see what’s standing right in front of her.” –Zeth

I had so many WTF just happened moments in this book, that I was constantly on the edge of my seat waiting to read what was going to happen next!

I CAN NOT WAIT to see how the rest of their relationship unfolds!

AUTHOR

Callie Hart is the author of the Deviant series. The first book, Deviant, titled after the series, was released in February 2014, and the following instalment, Fracture, is set to be released  on April 7 2014.

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and moulding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.

BOOK REVIEW: Fracture (Blood & Roses #2) by Callie Hart

21417329

SYNOPSIS

Zeth Mayfair is pretty much the very last thing I need in my life. And yet with every breath I take he becomes more engrained in every aspect of it:

He has a key to my house.

He knows where I work.

He dumped his strange, mentally traumatized housemate on my doorstep and has driven off into the sunset in search of my missing sister.

I want to forget him. Want to change the locks and blot out his face, scourge his very name from my memory. The problem is that I also need him. I need him more than I need air to breath, and I can’t be without him now.

He owns me.

He torments me.

He’s fractured me

REVIEW

ASHLEY’S REVIEW: 5 INTENSE STARS

Fracture has it ALL! Action, suspense, mystery, humor, oh and crazy hawt sex!!! 😉

Fracture is the second installment in the Blood & Roses’s sereies and starts off where Deviant left off…

On the “relationship” side of things, there seems to be a shift between Sloane and Zeth. “Something…something is passing between us.” Sloane is trying to deny this pull between her and Zeth. Their “relationship” is only about sex; he shows up whenever he wants it and she gives it to him, end of story. But is that all it is? “…you gave yourself to me back at my apartment; I’ve never done it before, but I gave myself in return…”

He owns me.

He torments me.

He’s fractured me.

On the business side of things, there seems to be a “power change” going on for Zeth…he’s finding out that he might be on the outs with his “boss” Charlie and he has to figure out why. “Could be something from last week or ten years ago that’s turned Charlie’s eye against me, but whatever this thing is that’s soured his favoritism of me, I’m just finding it a little hard to believe.”

Plus, he has to find Alexis, Sloane’s sister, and he knows right where she is. All he has to do is convince Slone not to interfere with his plans. Can he save Alexis without involving Sloane?

I could not put this book down! This isn’t like any other book I’ve ever read! It really has you reading into all the finer details, so you don’t miss anything! It’s not just about the “mind-blowing sex” (but that is an amazing part of it;) ). There is so much more to this story!

I can’t wait to read more of Sloane and Zeth’s story!

LOST IN ME

The last thing I remember is having drinks at Brady’s and trying to avoid eye-contact with my life-long crush—the gorgeous, unattainable Maximilian Hallowell. They tell me that was a year ago, but I have no memories of anything since then. What I do have is this ring on my finger that Max says he gave me, and this much-thinner body I’ve dreamed of most of my life. Aside from a case of retrograde amnesia, everything seems almost…perfect.

But the deeper I immerse myself into this new world of mine—planning a wedding to a man I don’t remember dating, attempting to run a business I don’t remember starting—the clearer it becomes that nothing is as it seems. Do I have the life I’ve always wanted or is it a facade propped up by secrets I don’t even know I have?

I need answers before I marry Max, and the only person who seems to have them is the angry, tatted, sexy-as-sin rocker Nate Crane. And Nate wants me for himself.

FALL TO YOU

Torn between two men…

When I woke up after the accident, I couldn’t remember anything from the last year—including my relationship with Max Hallowell or anything about Nate Crane. Now my memories are returning, but instead of answering my questions, they’re leaving me with more.

The man who broke my heart and wants to be my future…

Max is all I ever wanted, and now he wants to marry me. He’ll do everything he can to fill my life with love, family, and security. I need those things now more than ever. But can I trust him?

The man who stole my heart and wants to let me go…

Nate never made me promises, and I never asked him to. I’d been on the rebound, looking for a distraction, and he made me feel beautiful and wanted when I needed to feel those things most. He says he has to let me go, but what if I can’t let go of him?

With every revelation and every passing day, I feel more like Alice down the rabbit hole. I’m falling. Who will catch me?

ALL FOR THIS

What if you would never remember the day you made the most important decision of your life?

That’s what they’re telling me about the day of my accident—the day I put on Max’s ring and chose him over Nate. I’m counting on the wisdom behind a decision I don’t remember making.

Max is amazing—sexy, sweet, and kind. I was starting to believe happily-ever-after might be in my future after all. Then the unthinkable happened and my world imploded. If I’m going to make this work with Max, I need my missing memories, or at least answers from about those five days before my accident.

But what does my future hold if those answers aren’t anything like I imagined?

Stan

SYNOPSIS

Stan

I had plans, big plans, but all that changed the night Bel Evans darkened my doorstep.

Stan Remington is the go-to man. What he doesn’t know about Onslow means one of two things: it doesn’t exist or it hasn’t happened yet.

And when it comes to Onslow, for Stan, being an only child means a guilt-riddled sense of duty to help out at his parents’ caravan park every summer of his life: same old town, same old story.

Until Belinda Evans.

The wild and insipid doctor’s daughter who spends summer holidays with her family at Remington’s Caravan Park, but she’s not Stan’s problem; that is, until she sabotages his planned weekend escape. Now Stan finds himself not only caretaking the caravan park on his own, but responsible for Bel as well.

Just the two of them.
Under the one roof.
For one long, long weekend.

In a world built by mundane routine and small-town boredom, this summer promises to be anything but boring.

BLOG TOUR, INTERVIEW & BOOK REVIEW: Captivated: Seize The Night by Tiffany Reisz

Captivated Banner

Captivated cover

SYNOPSIS

Double the passion and seduction as New York Times bestselling author Megan Hart and international bestselling author Tiffany Reisz weave two provocative tales about power, bad-boy lovers and secret desires!

LETTING GO by Megan Hart

Colleen goes to the same bar every night and orders the same drink: a whiskey, neat. She doesn’t drink it, though. Jesse the bartender notices the beautiful, sad woman who keeps to herself. Until one night when she lets go and lets him in. And after that, Jesse has only one mission–to show her one night is only the beginning.

SEIZE THE NIGHT by Tiffany Reisz

Four years ago, a night of forbidden passion between Remi and Julien, the heirs of two powerful and competitive horse-racing families, led to a feud that is threatening to ruin both farms. Now Remi must find Julien again, but when she does, her need for Julien is just as strong and just as forbidden.

BOOK REVIEW: 4.5 STARS

Tiffany did an amazing job of taking one of the most famous tragedies ever written, and turning it into a  funny, sexy, romantic novella – without the drama! We love reading books without drama, they’re refreshing and good for the soul. We also love reading books about second chances, and this was definitely a second chance for Remi and Julien.

When they met 4 years ago, they had an instant connection.  They talked as though they’d known each other forever, and their chemistry was undeniable . But then, things got a little complicated. Yet strangely, those same complications were the ones that got them together again.  When Remi tracks Julien down, the connection is most certainly still there.

Remi is a cool character. She’s smart, decisive, and strong, and goes after what she believes in, which I love in a female lead.  Julien we get to know through the eyes of Remi and instantly we can see why she fell for him all those years ago.  When he reveals the reason he disappeared from Remi’s life it is totally unexpected, and only makes us root for them both even more.

We laughed out loud with Merrick’s comments. He was probably our favorite character in this book (although – hard choice!) And his boss/employee relationship with Remi was hilarious. They were constantly joking and taunting each other, yet underneath the jokes it was clear they genuinely cared for one another.

It would be wrong to say we forget how good Tiffany is, because we don’t.  But this book was a brilliant reminder of just HOW good she is.  It was also the perfect taster for The King, the 6th book of her Original Sinners series.  To say we are excited would be an understatement.

Favorite Quotes:

“She paused when Julien Brite stepped into the doorway of the living room.  “I have to say,” Julien began, a crooked smile on his face, “I’m really glad my parents arent here right now.”  He wore jeans and a plain T-shirt, no shoes, no socks.“

“Julien kissed her like he’d die if he didn’t, like he hadn’t been kissed in a decade, like he had a gun to the back of his head and had been ordered to kiss her as if his life depended on it”

“Perfect moment #2 – Julien took her to the Musée de I’Orangerie where they stood in silence holding hands as they stared into the deep blue of Monet’s Water Lilies.”

*** This review was written with my dearest friend Scarlette Drake! We both love Tiffany’s books and I invited her to write the review with me. It was so much fun!! 😉

INTERVIEW

Hello Tiffany, thank you so much for agreeing to do this interview, it means a lot to us. We loved Seize The Night.  Firstly, can we say that Seize The Night was such a sweet, sexy and amazingly funny retelling of such a tragic shakespearean story. The fact that you managed to transform this story into something fresh and new was really amazing.  Who knew Romeo and Juliet could be so much fun!

So, we’d like to ask a few questions. Here we go…

1. We loved the introduction you wrote for Seize The Night. You said you went for a long bike ride, which we think it’s awesome! We love bikes! What kind of bike do you own? and do you always do that for inspiration?

I’m so glad you loved “Seize the Night.” It’s definitely one of my favorite stories I’ve ever written. Harlequin had asked me to write a second Cosmo Red Hot Read after they loved my first one, Misbehaving, so much. I wanted to do another Shakespeare play since Misbehaving was an erotic retelling of Much Ado About Nothing. I picked Romeo & Juliet because I knew it well and it had a great forbidden love theme. But I didn’t know where to set it. These days in the U.S.A. there isn’t a lot of family feuding going on. Not the sort of family feuding that has real consequences. While I was out biking (I have a 3 speed red Townie bike) in the Central Kentucky countryside, I saw a horse farm. One of the most quoted lines in Romeo & Juliet is Mercutio’s famous curse, “A plague on both your houses.” So I thought…”Houses? No. HORSES.” Horse-racing families are still dynasties. They’re families that are also businesses. And with so much money to be won or lost, there are very serious, although rather blue-blooded, rivalries among the famous Thoroughbred farm families. So I made Remi/Romeo the daughter of one famous family and Julien/Juliette the son of an another.

 2. So you certainly made it seem fun taking a classic tale and twisting it – and in a way you were writing fanfic again! If you were to do it again in future, which classic tale would you choose to give the trademark Tiffany Kink?

The Taming of the Shrew is tailor-made for a kinky retelling. Although I might make the “Shrew” male and the tamer a Dominatrix. Genderswapping gives new life to these older stories.

3. You switched gender roles from the way they were in the original story.  Did you see this as another way of ‘modernising’ it?  Or was there another reason?

I love the older woman/younger man dynamic. And I’ve always liked the name Julien. Plus my mother is an office manager and she has a quirky male assistant so it made perfect sense to make Remi/Romeo a little older and make Mercutio/Merrick her oddball second-in-command.

4. In Seize The Night, the characters are beautiful, we had quite a difficult time choosing our perfect dream cast, but we came to a really hot selection. We’d like to know who are your dream cast for Remi, Julien, Merrick and Selena.

They’re all in my heads. I don’t have any actresses or actors picked out. Remi’s a buxom blonde so maybe Kate Upton? Julien’s only 21 but I can see someone who sort of looks like Eddie Redmayne playing him. I’d cast a famous Bollywood actress for Selena—maybe Sonakshi Sinha. And one of my readers said her dream Merrick was Jurassic Park-era Jeff Goldblum, ie Dr. Ian Malcolm. Since this a dream cast, we can get creative and go back in time to get 1993 Jeff Goldblum.

pizap.com14143680277901

5. As you know, we collect book boyfriends, it’s a huge collection now, and all your characters are in our collection of course, including Nora Sutherlin. We’d like to know who is your ultimate book boyfriend and why he’s the ultimate. And as great as they are, you aren’t allowed to choose your own creations! (even Søren!)

My ultimate book boyfriend? Oh my. Probably Hercule Poirot. I love love love Agatha Christie mysteries and have had a crush on her famous Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot for years.

BOOK REVIEW: Baby, It’s Cold Outside: It’s a Tangled Christmas Carol by Emma Chase

21412502

SYNOPSIS

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling indie authors Jennifer Probst, Emma Chase, Kristen Proby, Melody Anne, and debut author Kate Meader come together to write a sizzling romance anthology.

Outside it may be frosty, so turn the heat way up with these stories of desire!

Can a determined woman executive and a playboy billionaire survive being stranded together in a snowstorm? Jennifer Probst depicts an encounter almost too hot to handle…

Drew and Kate play an encore to Tangled in this sexy take on a “Christmas Carol” by Emma Chase. When a Christmas Eve argument condemns Drew to a troubled night, three dream women teach him that no gift could be more tantalizing than Kate…

With Kristen Proby, ski slopes are quite delightful. Grace Douglas is sure she’ll never learn to ski, but instructor Jacob Baxter could teach her lessons of a different kind…

Can a southern California transplant survive Montana’s deep snows?Melody Anne, author of the bestselling Andersons series, melts the icy drifts completely away with the heat between sexy Hawk Winchester and brand-new teacher Natalie Duncan…

What could be hotter than a firefighter? Kate Meader shows how, as Brett Farraday and heiress-turned-tattoo-artist Lucy Cochrane discover, nothing ignites holiday flames like rekindling a lost love…

REVIEW

5 STARS

Having the chance to read more about Drew is the best thing in the world – or like the best christmas present I could have asked for (Thank you Emma!!!) I think I will forever worship Emma Chase for writing the best book boyfriend ever! With every book or excerpt or anything I read about Drew and Kate, I fall more and more in love with him, their relationship and everything related to them. I simply can’t get enough of Drew Evans!

stephen-amell-cassandra-jean-holiday-photo-with-maviThis is a christmas story, of course, and it has everything that I’ve come to love about Emma’s books: it’s funny, sexy, and it gives the urge to kick Drew in the balls. Yes, I wanted to kick him so hard that I had to write it in the review, but he is a wise man and he prevented a christmas disaster.  I won’t say much about the story because it would be a huge spoiler – you will just have to find out for yourselves.

Drew and Kate are great for each other. Little James isn’t so little now and their family is as beautiful as always. They know how to balance their family time, their parental duties and of course,  their sex life. Which is, as always, super hot and sexy.

I know I asked Emma for more and now I have more, but I want more and more and more because like I said, I can’t get enough of Drew Evans.

Audiobook review to come. Bring it baby. More Sebastian York means heaven for me! ❤

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: APHRODITE’S CHARMS by Julie Kenner

aphroditescharms

charms

SYNOPSIS

From New York Times, USA Today and international bestselling author Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner) — Aphrodite’s Charms contains all four full-length novels in the bestselling Protector (Superhero) series of paranormal romances. 

This bundle contains the full text of Aphrodite’s Kiss, Aphrodite’s Passion, Aphrodite’s Secret, Aphrodite’s Flame (each book is available for purchase individually as well as in this bundle)

Aphrodite’s Kiss: 

Zoe Smith might look like your average, ordinary elementary school librarian, but she’s about as far from normal as a girl can get. Because Zoe is descended from a line of superheroes … and as her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she has to decide if she’s going to embrace her heritage (including the X-ray vision and her extraordinary senses) or submit herself for mortalization and be that average, ordinary girl.

Considering how lousy she’s done so far on all the Council-imposed tests, chucking the whole superhero thing might be very best thing … especially when she realizes that sexy, private investigator George Bailey Taylor is convinced that Zoe is one-hundred percent “the girl next-door”.

An ex-cop turned PI, George Bailey Taylor’s had one hell of a life being bounced around from foster home to foster home. All he wants now is a normal life with a normal wife in a normal neighborhood. And when he meets Zoe Smith, he’s certain she’s the typical American girl.

Except she does have an overprotective brother who seems able to appear and disappear at will. And a creepy cousin who’s always lurking about. And why does everyone in her family pretend to actually talk to the pet ferret? With her super powers, Zoe can do just about anything … except make Taylor fall in love with her.

For that, they’re both going to need a different kind of magic …

Aphrodite’s Passion: 

Mortal Tracy Tannin has always felt like the most ordinary girl in the world, especially since she’s lived her whole life in the shadow of her Hollywood superstar grandmother. But when she finds an antique belt in her grandmother’s attic, everything changes. Suddenly everyone wants Tracy—or maybe they just want the belt.

Superhero Hale is more than happy to do his job protecting mortals. But get emotionally close to one? Absolutely no way. Which is why he’s thrown a bit off his game when he suddenly finds himself craving the mortal woman he’s been assigned to protect. But that must just be the effect of the magical belt he’s supposed to retrieve, right?

Because there’s no way that a guy like Hale can fall for a girl like Tracy.

Or is there?

Aphrodite’s Secret: 

Shapeshifter Jason Murphy spent six years captive to the most notorious Outcast in the Protector world—Hieronymous Black, who also happens to be Jason’s father. Worse than his is the distrust that his absence put between him and the love of his life, Lane.

Lane knows only that the father of her child disappeared just moments after she told him she was pregnant, and she’s spent the last few years struggling as a single mom. Now Jason’s determined to win back his family.

But to do that, he’s going to have to face his father one last time. And he’s going to have to tell Lane the truth—and hope that this time she’ll see him as a hero.

Aphrodite’s Flame: 

Mordichai grew up under the shadow of the baddest bad guy out there—Hieronymous Black—and he’s used his power to conjure fire to help Daddy Dearest in numerous nefarious plots. But he’s reformed now—and just in time to meet the woman of his dreams.

Isole Frost believes Mordichai when he says he’s truly reformed. Trouble is, she also believes that Hieronymous truly wants to give up his dark ways and join the good guys.

He may be the man of her dreams, but she’s sure that he’s wrong.And when they’re forced to work together, they’re either going to prove that fire won’t mesh with ice—or that the inevitable result is a whole lotta steam!

BLOG TOUR: A Need So Insatiable (Hearts #1) by Cecilia Robert

SYNOPSIS

“You’ve owned me from the moment I walked into that music room. You’ve wrapped yourself in my heart and mind. I can’t get you out. I don’t want to.” ~ Rafael Van Rees

Sophie Fisher’s life is on fire. If she’s not ducking around corners or slipping out of windows to escape the debt collectors her father’s death has left knocking on her door, she’s dealing with her rebellious, fifteen-year-old sister, Lilli. And, as if that’s not enough, Rafael Van Rees crashes into her life—literally—bringing with him a past the public has no idea of. Can she unravel his mysteries before he unravels her, or will his presence finally force her to face the demons she’s trying to outrun?

Rafael Van Rees prides himself on being in control of his destiny, music and women. As far as he is concerned, his past is a black cloud in the distance–until he meets Sophie, that is, and his world spins out of control in more ways than one. He knows the darkest sins and secrets eventually reveal themselves, but when it comes to Sophie, he’ll stop at nothing to protect her from his past. Even if it kills him.

A note from the author:

I’m a big fan of beautiful covers. I also believe that covers go a long way in getting a book noticed by buyers. I love ALL my covers, but sometimes it’s not easy for me to find an image that gives me the feel for the story. Sounds pretty weird, huh?..LOL

In the last few months, I’ve changed the cover of A Need So Insatiable twice, trying to find the right feel for the book. Recently, I did a small poll between the current cover (the model in a suit)  and an older version (the couple). As much as the majority loved the brooding male on the cover, they also loved the one featuring a couple. I decided to go back and change it to see how the response would be. I’m quite happy with this one too, I love the male model’s expression.  Plus, just look at how he’s holding her, and where her hand is on his neck? **swoon**

Hope you all like this new cover.

EXCERPT

. “Did you need something?”

“Just this . . .” I frame her face with my palms and brush my lips on hers. She sucks in a breath, her eyes fluttering shut. She grabs the front of my shirt as she sags forward, like her legs can’t hold her up anymore. Slipping one arm around her waist, I pull her curvy, soft body flush against my hard one, my lips still on hers.

Fuck yes! The buzz is still there. We were both young when we shared our first kiss, but this. This is different. Time hasn’t erased the connection between us. My heart recognizes her, beating to a rhythm that’s only hers.

Pulling back, I stare at the face that has lived in my head for years. Haunting me. Comforting me. Her eyes slowly open, and she blinks, looking dazed. She presses her fingers on her lips.

“You kissed me,” she whispers, as if it’s the most unusual thing. Does she not get kissed often? Her lips were made for kissing, and I can’t get my greedy eyes off them.

I tip my head to the side. “I did,” I say, pressing my thumb on her bottom lip, inching up to the labret. Her mouth parts slightly. I could kiss her again, slip my tongue past those delectable lips. Taste her. Really taste her.

“Goodbye, Sophie.” I drop my hand and turn to leave, then stop. “Nice tattoo, by the way. A butterfly.” I emphasize the last word to get a reaction. Nothing.

“Mr. Van R–Rafael. Do we know each other?”

Christ, the way she says my name has every part of my body straining, wanting to hear her say it again.

“Do we?” I lift a brow.

Her frown deepens, and her bewitching eyes, smoky after the shared semi-kiss, narrow at me.

I’m not about to tell her. I need to find out why she can’t remember me first. “Drive safely, Sophie.” I turn, and stride back to Simone’s music room. I feel her eyes on my back, my shoulders, my ass. I let her have her fill. I’m not going to deny her–and me–this chance. I’m selfish, but hey, she needs the image to go along with the kiss. Right before I turn the corner, she takes a loud, deep breath.

Damn right, Butterfly.

EXCERPT

Suddenly, his hand is on my arm, pulling me back around. “Don’t go.”

I look up. My breath catches. He’s looking at me intensely. Desire and desperation in his eyes.

How dare he?

He steps forward, slowly pushing me back against the wall. I should shove back, walk out of here and leave him behind forever, but for some reason, I can’t move.

His heat rolls through me. His scent hits like a drug. And most of all, the sheer overwhelming presence of him keeps me pinned in place. Strong. Determined.

Hungry.

My eyes flutter shut and I breathe him in.

I hate him.

“Please…” I whisper, and even I don’t know what I’m asking. For him to let me go, or turn me around and fuck me right here up against the wall, like the very first time.

He dips his head closer, until I can feel his breath, hot on my cheek.

“I’m sorry,” he whispers, his voice rasping. “I’ll let you go. But this isn’t over. Not by a long shot.”
