Dirty Wife Games follows Hyun, who you would have first met if you read Dirty Bride Games. This book takes place in the present time after she escaped from the Marino brothers and their twisted game. But now she has another psychotic man after her, and this one isn't going to stop until he gets what he wants.

Let me just say that this book can be read completely on it's own and there's only one very small cameo from a character from the first book. But with that being said I did sort of compare the two stories and I found this one a little lacking. There wasn't much craziness until the end, which I was fine with at first, but then when it all came up it felt sudden and not like it went along with the story. 

Hyun and Drake were okay characters but I was never able to connect to them. My big issue was that this story jumped around a lot. From POV to POV after only short excerpts from a character and also between the present and the past. I am not a fan of stories that jump back and forth, and this one did it a lot. Just my own personal preference to stay in the present. 

What saved this story for me was the sexiness, and the shocker that comes at the end. Hyun and Drake had some great sexual chrmistry and every time they were together my eyes were glued to the page and reality left my mind. Then at the end everything was tied together really well and it made me appreciate this story more than I had in the beginning so I really liked that. Plus I love when a book can give me a really good shock. 

Overall, I did enjoy the reading experience that came from this story and I'm glad I got to read it. I think this will be a good introduction to the Indecent Games series if you're not yet ready for the truly insane story that this author can come up with.

Beauty and the Beastly Billionaire . . .

Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone. Yet his brothers insist he take a greater role in the family business. They've hired him ten personal assistants—and Eli sent each one packing as fast as possible. But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.

Isabella Sawyer's employment agency can't afford to lose Eli Crane's business. Her plan: to personally take on the role of his PA, and secure her reputation with the wealthy elite in Chicago. But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won't rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .


Standing, she smoothed her hands down her pants and flipped her hair. She had planned to quietly finish her work and leave without seeing him again. No such luck. And no hiding that she was heading his way when her heels clicked along the concrete floor.


The kiss had happened. The button incident had happened. There was no taking it back. Regardless of how either of them felt about it, she was going to continue working here. So. She would deal with the here and now.

For His Eyes Only

FHEO available now

A night he can’t forget

Five years ago, Nick Markovic found himself consumed by his quest for vengeance. The one time he managed to find peace was in the arms of Hayley Dalton. Being with her was like bathing in sunlight, and he ached to feel that again, but he couldn’t. He gave his oath to Hayley’s cousin Desiree, his partner at McKay-Taggart and Knight, that he’d never let his darkness infect Hayley’s innocent world.

A spark she can’t put out

It was years before that Hayley offered everything she had to Nick. After that one amazing night, all she wanted was to be his forever. Unfortunately, Nick’s reaction was to walk away from her and never look back. The warm and caring man she’d discovered was gone, and after Des’s death, he’d only grown colder. But when Hayley finds herself in mortal danger, she’s forced to seek protection from the man who broke her heart.

A flame that threatens to consume them both

Haunted by the women he failed, Nick can’t allow himself to grow close to Hayley again. Running to stay ahead of the powerful forces that endanger their lives, they travel from the lush Garden in London to the glittering lights of Rio. As the threat against her becomes clearer, he realizes that to keep her safe he must confront the demons from his past, even if it costs him a future with the woman he loves.

Nick went back to staring at the report. “Hayley’s not mine. She was Desiree’s cousin. Now she’s my client.”

Who had been tired the night before and that was why she’d said the things she’d said. This morning she’d seemed much more sensible. After she’d had some sleep and a shower and had straightened herself up, she’d been quiet and seemingly reflective. She was very likely embarrassed by what had been said the night before.

I would get safety from murderers and I would get orgasms. I’m sorry, Nicky, you’re going to tell me how that’s a bad deal for me.

He was going to make sure she understood that his protection wasn’t based on whether or not she slept with him.

Because he wasn’t sleeping with her. He couldn’t hurt her that way again.

“So she was your old lover’s cousin,” Owen mused. “The lover you weren’t exclusive with and who wouldn’t marry you. The pretty girl who looks at you like you’re the sun in the sky is her cousin.”

“She looks at me like she would look at man who can save her.”

“I can save her.” Owen’s eyes lit up, his brows waggling. “Maybe she’ll look at me like that.”

Anger flared through his system. “Don’t you dare. I told you I would take care of her.”

His arms crossed over his big chest and Nick knew he’d been had. “Well, that answers the question with more honesty. You can pretend, but you like the girl. And if you honestly don’t then you need to know that the boys got a good look at her last night. If she’s going to be hanging about, she should be ready for some serious male attention.”

“What are you talking about?”

“The lads talked it over last night and decided there’s no dibs on this one. They all saw her at pretty much the same time. They looked over that dead body and saw her walking in the hall and that was when the fighting started. We all sat down and decided no dibs on her. She’ll get to pick. You should know that Sasha and Jax have decided if she picks either of them, they’re willing to share. I don’t play that way. That’s something I do know about meself. No need for you to be telling me that tale. If there’s going to be some sharing in the bedroom, it’s going to be the traditional kind between a man and a woman and her stacked best friend. That’s what I say.”

“You tell those boys to stay away from her or they will be dealing with me. They will not like to be dealing with me. I will put up with many things from them. They can poke all the corpses they like. They can punch each other. I do not care. They touch Hayley and I will be caring.”

“Wow, now you do sound Russian. A scary Russian. Still, I think if you don’t want the girl, shouldn’t she be allowed to choose? Think about it. It could be fun.”

“Are we talking about the lost boys and their battle for the new chick?” Kayla strode in, her hair in a high ponytail. It bounced as she walked, a testament to her seemingly ever-sunny personality. “I had babysitting duty last night and they kept talking about her even after lights out. Bad boys. I had a plan though. I think we make them compete in a beauty pageant. Hayley gets to judge.”

“I’m judging a beauty pageant?” Hayley followed behind Kay, and both women were followed by Charlotte Taggart and Penelope Knight. It looked like Hayley was rapidly being accepted by the women on his team.

That was not necessarily a good thing. The women on his team could create chaos like no others.

“That sounds like fun,” Charlotte said with a smile. “I think we should require Speedos for the bathing suit competition. No boring board shorts. If Hayley’s picking a lover, she needs to see some booty.”

Hayley stopped, her cheeks going the sweetest color of pink. “Wait. What?”

Penelope put a hand on her arm. “They’re teasing you, dear. Don’t worry about it. The lads will be very polite. Though you should expect some suitors while you’re here. Especially if you come down to the dungeon.”

Now he was the one flushing. “Excuse me?”

Hayley shook her head as she joined him at the table. “It’s nothing. I was just talking to the girls. Did you get the report? Penny said the Dallas office had found something.”

He was all too aware that they weren’t alone. Damon and Ian walked in with Brody Carter and Walter Bennett. The four men settled into chairs as the women joined them. Nick held out a chair for Hayley. He would have to remember that he couldn’t leave her alone for a minute or someone would be whispering in her ear, giving her ideas she shouldn’t have.

Like visiting The Garden on a play night.

It wasn’t happening.

Dark Protector

Title: Dark Protector
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017

From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood.

I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong. Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.

But everything comes with a price, especially second chances for a man like me.

Killing for her was easy. It was living for her that turned out to be the hard part.

Author's Note: This is a full-length romance novel. Explicit violence and hot sex included. HEA, no cheating.

Conrad is the Mafia's go to guy when they need a mess cleaned up. He's a hitman loyal to the highest bidder and he's okay with the life he leads. Until that life takes the girl he cares about, even though they've never met. Charlie has been his since he started watching her at her florist shop, even if she doesn't know it. But after his enemies kidnap her because of him he knows that once he saves her, he's not going to let her go. 

Dark Protector was a very fast paced story and I loved that it never stopped that momentum it had from the beginning. Right from the first chapter we're kept on this race of murders and kidnapping, and the whole story was very intriguing. 

I really enjoyed seeing Conrad with Charlie, and it was great that she could surprise this hardened killer. I liked both characters and I felt they suited each other really well. One of Conrad's friends made an appearance too and I hope there will be more to come from him. 

Bottom line, this was a great book. It's not very dark so I think anyone that likes a fast suspense to read will enjoy this one.

Title: Silenced
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2017


Haunted by a photographic memory, I couldn’t escape the worst night of my life.
The blood they shed.
The pain they endured.
The evil that still walked free.
It was all I saw. Those memories, my childhood—the images.

Silenced and scarred.

But nothing lasts forever.
Torment turned to blinding rage. Hate sought revenge, which pursued death.
Then there was life.
The moon.
Rylee Anderson.

I had to choose...

Silenced is the heart-wrenching story of Killian, who's life was changed the night he saw his parents murdered. The same night he stopped talking and walked away with scars on his face. He was moved in with his aunt when no other family could take care of him and that's when his life changed yet again. When he met Rylee.
"If I could, I’d steal the moon from the sky. I’d still the earth and keep it from turning into day. I’d stay here with you, taking to you, listening to you…kissing you."

The story progresses from when Killian and Rylee are young and then skips five years after they turn 18 and have a bit of a falling out. I liked that we got to see their relationship prgress from childhood friends to more and it was really intriguing to read. I honeslty don't think I've ever read a book that was that involved in the main characters' younger years, but I'm a fan of how this author did that.

I do have to say though, the book lost my interest just a little after that time jump when I was trying to pick back up with the characters and their lived. Though for Killian, his character wasn't much different. 

I don't want to say too much about this book because I feel like it's something best experienced without too much prior knowledge of what's to come. What I will say is that I think if you can handle a little darkness, then this is a story you really need to pick up. It was captivatingly haunting to watch these character grow together in the wake of destruction and I'm so glad I got to experience their story.

She turned back to him. “You seem to have a good deal of stamina.”

“Amelie…Mistress, I don’t think you’re getting’ that I seriously find you not hard on the eyes.”

She bent closer, as intended for this part of their session, some of her fair falling on his chest in another caress. She did this letting her amusement show, if not all of the emotion she felt at his compliment.

“I wonder, mon chou, if you think you can butter me up with compliments.”

“I don’t know. Maybe. Though not sure why I’d bother since I didn’t give you one and you just made me shoot a huge-ass load the like that have never come from my cock.”

“And he gives another compliment,” she said through a smile.

“You earn it, I’ll say it, he replied, his lips twitching. “That is, if I’m physically capable of speech.”

She was still smiling when she reached out a hand and delicately traced circles around his nipple.

His eyes darkened.

Her good humor increased.

“You’re of course aware I should do something about you being so audaciously cheeky.”

Another darkness crossed his face. “What?”

“I shouldn’t allow you to be cheeky with me.”


“Impudent,” she explained.

The look fled. “You mean, in uppity, hot-chick speak, a wise-ass.”

Amelie couldn’t help it, she laughed softly.

“She’s got a pretty laugh, too, to go with that pretty accent,” he murmured and she saw his eyes on her lips.

I could get lost in this one, she thought. Lost and never found.


Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Chasing Christmas Eve Cover Reveal

 From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes the next sexy, standalone novel in the Heartbreaker Bay series...


Meet cute...

Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.

Make merry...

Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself... just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spencer immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?

…and hope for a miracle.

Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime


The bathroom door opened, and even better than his fantasy, Colbie emerged from a cloud of steam, her willowy body wrapped in one of his towels, her exposed skin gleaming and dewy damp. Her hair had been piled on top of her head, but wavy strands had escaped, clinging to her neck and shoulders.

He couldn’t tear his gaze off of her. There was just something so uncalculated about her, so . . . natural and easy. She was like a beacon to him, which was both crazy and more than a little terrifying.

Clearly not seeing him against the wall, she moved with an effortless grace to the suitcase she’d left at the door. Bending low enough to give him a near heart attack, she rifled through her things, mumbling to herself that she should’ve researched more about how to be a normal person instead of how to kill someone with an everyday object.

“Do you kill a lot of people, then?” Spence asked.

“Motherforker!” she said with a startled squeak of surprise, whirling to face him, almost losing her grip on the towel.

Five days a week, Spence worked out hard in this gym. Mostly to outrun his demons, but the upside was he could run miles without losing his breath. But he lost his breath now.

And that wasn’t his body’s only reaction.

Royally Screwed

Title: Royally Screwed 
Series: Royally Book 1
Author: Emma Chase 
Publication: October 16, 2016

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you. 

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn't bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants. 

Dating a prince isn't what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.

There's a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they've traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven't chopped anyone's head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner. 

But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

This book was just brilliant I loved everything about it it was a bit like Cinderella but Prince Charming is even sexier an he as a smart hot mouth an this story is way more hotter then the Fairy tale Prince Nicholas know how to make a woman melt an he made Olivia melt just with his voice an once she seen him she couldn't get enough but there first meeting wasn't as perfect as she would of liked he was a bit of a knob but Olivia as been through enough an can handle herself very well she's a New Yorker an as been dealt a few crappy hands in life but she keeps her chin up but Nicholas's life isn't al that rosy either he as a lot of pressure in his life he is the next heir to the throne an his Grandmother can be pretty hard on him an he goes along with it but when he meets Olivia plans don't go the way they should 

Again Emma Chase as done an amazing job of giving me another sexy guy to drool over an not just any guy a Prince an I just loved him Prince Nicholas is so sexy I couldn't get enough of him the story was brilliant I loved how he was with Olivia he was so madly in love with her an she was the same they make such a great couple then u have Prince Henry OMG he is a lil manwhore an is so cheeky but cute I m dying for his story 

There isn't anything that I didn't like about this book I d highly recommend it it made me laugh in parts an I did get a lump in my throat in parts to the characters were really as well the story had a great flow the duel pov was great I love a male pov getting into there head an knowing what there thinking is good once I started this I hated putting it down I was hooked straight away but I knew I would b Ive enjoyed al of this author's books I m looking for more of this series I can't get enough xxx 

Olivia is struggling to keep her mothers pie shop open. Which isn't easy when she doesn't have the help she needs and she's beyond stressed out. So when an arrogant, too good looking, man comes into the shop and suggests she sleep with him for money, she's done. She throws a pie in his face and tells him to get out. So she never would have guessed that he'd return, or that he'd be a Prince with a very serious proposition for her. 

Shockingly this is my first Emma Chase book. I have a few other of her on my tbr but I've never gotten around to them. I am definitely going to try to rectify that situation very soon though because I loved her writing. She made it very easy to believe in this made up country and a fictional Royal family. 

These characters were well written and I easily got engrossed in their lives. I loved that Nicholas wasn't some stuck up, rick Prince that would be a brat when he didn't get his way. Instead he was hard working and cared about the people in his country. He and Olivia were perfect together and I liked seeing her let go of her independence just a little. She didn't let Nicholas control her but she would give in sometimes and let him take care of her. It was great to see her being taken care of instead of being the one taking care of everyone.

So here's my issue with the book. Emma Chase made it way too good! Now I'm just left wondering where the hell my Prince is to come sweep me off my feet. It's not fair that this isn't real.

Book 2 is February 21st! Pre Order now.

Title: Riveted
Series: Saints of Denver Book 3
Publication date: February 14, 2017

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.

Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael's life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that's become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she's going hunting for him...even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it's time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he's all wrong for you.

I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but holy wow Jay Crownover is one amazing author. She has a unique ability to take a simple storyline and turn it into something spectacular. She somehow subtly entwines real life issues into her stories and I am in love with how she does that. 

Riveted follows Dixie Carmichael as she tries to find her forever person. She's sure that the one she's supposed to be with is the big and brooding Church, but he doesn't seem to want her back. Not one to chase after a man, she gives up and enters the crazy, and sometimes too ridiculous to believe, dating game. 

But Church needs her help with his long overdue family reunion and Dixie can't deny him. The two head to Church's hometown of Lowry Mississippi where Church hasn't stepped foot for over a decade. He prepared himself for all the obstacles he thought he would face back in his hometown, but what he didn't prepare himself for were the feelings Dixie invokes in him.

Church is a character that has really intrigued me in the past because of his quiet intensity. I'm a sucker for a Hero like him and he was exactly what I wanted him to be. He kept his issues bottled up and wouldn't let people in until Dixie came around and forced him to face his past. I found them perfect together because she had the ability to make him smile when nothing else could.

Dixie was a very interesting character to read about. She wasn't overly happy to where it got annoying but it was easy to always be smiling because of her. I have no clue how Jay pulled off writing the complexity of her character because I can barely even describe her while also making sense. She was happy and cheerful so much of the time but there was also the underlying emotions of her wanting someone to be there for her. I really liked that she had so much going on and it made her very intriguing.

Overall, I definitely recommend this book and this author if you haven't read her before. Riveted can easily be read as a standalone but I hope you'll read the other books in the series since they're just as good. And fans of the Saints of Denver series will be very happy to know (if you didn't already) that Poppy's story will be next!

This book was brilliant. I really enjoyed it. I was dying to know aghast was holding Church back from being with Dixie (I just luv that name). Dixie is such an amazing girl she sees the best in everyone and everything. Life hasn't been easy for her but things could always be worst. I really liked how she was so up beat even dealing with Church and his broody ways. I don't think I could of spent so long loving someone without getting even a lil bit back. But she would do anything for Church. 

Like I said I was dying to know more about Church. I knew he was in the army with Rome and then Rome helped him with job. But there was something about this sexy strong man that had me wondering why he couldn't let go with Dixie. She was the woman that turned everything from dark to light. Church's past wasn't very really a happy one he lost a lot of people that he loved and this was his reasons for signing up and getting away from it al. It's also the reason he didn't go home as soon as he was back in America. But know he had to go home and deal with the people who had missed him so much at home and he had to turn to the person who he didn't want to get close to Dixie.

I really enjoyed this book. The story was really good. I wanted to know how things were going to go with these two very different people. I 've luvd this series so much. The characters are just brilliant. It was great to get a little but our Poppy and Wheeler. The end of epilogue had got me dyin for there book. I just know it's goin to amazing. I feel like I 've been waiting forever for it. Overall I really enjoyed everything about this book. I would highly recommend it.
