Book one in the sexy and scintillating new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!
There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.
The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have.
Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.
Book two: Shameless Now Live!
PROVOCATIVE: causing annoyance, anger, or another strong reaction, especially deliberately?.
When Nick 'Tiger' Rogers first meets Faith Winter at a gathering at her winery his intentions of getting to know Faith are one of deception, he believes Faith has something to do with her fathers sudden death albeit a heart attack but as the plot thickens and there's more investigations by Nick you are left wondering did she? didn't she?.
Nick is a sharp lawyer, aka tiger and Faith is an artist who also inherited her fathers winery. Both have 3 things in common, the sudden death of their parent by heart-attack, Nick lost his father and faith lost her mother, both disliked said parent and both parents were cheaters.
Nick is investigating his fathers death and believes there is fowl play with the questionable written cheques to Faiths mother and Faith is fighting off debt collectors for unpaid bills that her mother never paid, both mysterious in their own way, Why was Nick's father writing cheques and why was faiths mother not paying bills when she had money? Mysterious.
Nick is the only one in this plot investigating his fathers death and all the mystery surrounding it while Faith blindly enters into a relationship unawares of the lies and deception and what is going on behind the scenes.
lust and love can allow you to be blinded by the truth, is Nick being blinded as he begins to fall hard for Faith or is there more to find out. Faith comes across as innocent enough, worrying over the winery that her father loved while allowing her love of painting and art take a back seat until her new found relationship with nick inspires her to paint again.
This is one of those stories that slowly unravel but still leaves you hanging and you feel like it is only just on the tip of warming up while doing so but there's no denying this is a sexy and suspenseful read.
Pure curiosity would drive me to read book two in this duet, it was too slow going and lacking of drama for me to enter into it for any other reason so hopefully that will change.
I pick her up and set her on the counter, spreading her legs, my hips settling between her knees, hands on the lace bands of her thigh highs. “Then again,” I say, my fingers sliding up her naked thigh, to rest just at the edge of her silk panties, “since I’m such a bastard, if you tell me it’s not enough, I might not care. But I’ll try to be polite about it all.”
“Polite?” she asks, giving a choked laugh, her hands covering mine on her thigh. “You?”
“I’m so fucking polite,” I say, “I deserve an award for proper manners.” I stroke the silk between her legs, her spine arching as I do. “I’ll carry your bag for you,” I continue. “I’ll hold the door for you.” I lean in and press my cheek to hers, mouth at her ear. “I’ll make you wet,” I say, shoving aside her panties and stroking the slick heat of her body, my reward in the soft moan that slides from her lips. “I’ll let you come when I’m ready for you to come. I’ll even warn you right before I rip your panties off.” I grip the silk in my hand and yank it away, shoving them in my pocket before settling on one knee in front of her. “And now I’m going to lick you in the very spot you want me to lick you but I’m not going to let you come.” I lean in, and run my tongue along the exposed skin just above the lace of her hose, then caress a path to her s*x, where I pull back just enough to allow my breath to trickle over her, my c*ck so fucking hard it hurts.
She makes a sexy, desperate little sound...

The second and final book in the sexy and tantalizing White Lies Duet from New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa Renee Jones.
Nick "Tiger" Rogers, sought out Faith Winter with revenge as his agenda. He made her his obsession. He seduced her. He made her want him. He made here trust him. And then he trusted her. He wanted her. He loved her.
But now, the lies will be exposed, the truth revealed.
Hearts will be broken. Lives shattered.
The truth. The passion.
The SHAMELESS obsession.
I’m kissing her, drinking her in and this time, and unlike the kiss by the refrigerator, I don’t hold back and neither does she. Our tongues connect, stroke, battle…but it is one I will win. I will demand everything she has to give me. I want her free will. I want her as exposed as I vowed to make her, and it’s not to prove she’s a killer. It’s for me. For the man in me who not only wants to own this woman, I will. And when she tries to resist, when I sense her trying to withhold even a piece of herself, my hand covers one of her breasts. My fingers stroke her nipple with delicate, sensual touches that become rougher and rougher.
She pants into my mouth, and satisfied that wall she just tried to put up has fallen, I nip her lips, lapping at the offended area before I pull back, fingers still tangled in her hair. I yank at my tie and unbutton the last two buttons still intact, but I don’t move away. Not yet. I kiss her again, hard and fast, and while the resistance is gone, the taste of challenge remains on her lips, but it will soon be submission. She just doesn’t know it yet.
My hands go to her hips and I lift her off the counter and pull her to me, molding every soft perfect female part of her to my harder body, one hand cupping her sweet little ass. My lips linger just above hers, and damn it, there is this deep ache in me for this woman that is unfamiliar, unwelcomed. The lies I’ve told her are a fist in my chest that I reject. I have to know the truth and it’s not a truth someone just tells.
I squeeze her ass and then draw back and smack it, testing her, feeling out the depth of those nerves she showed me, her comfort level with where I might take her. Making a judgment on where I think she wants me to lead her. She doesn’t jolt with the impact. She doesn’t act shocked or angry. She leans into me, her body already submitting to me even if her mind has not, her hand covering my hand where it covers her breast. Her message is clear: She wants the kind of escape I’ve just offered. She wants me to push her to go to places that consume, to leave room for nothing else but the here and now. No fears. No nerves. No emotion, of which I hope like hell does not include guilt.
Whatever particular sins she wishes to escape—and to me emotions that control us are sins—she doesn’t just want someone to f*ck. She wants that invisible something that she believes I can give her. After two years of trusting no one, she’s chosen to gamble on a man who’s here to expose more than her passion. If she is guilty of murder or blackmail, or both, I’m a master in every sense of the word. If she’s innocent, I’m a bastard in every sense of the word. I kiss her again, and this time there is anger on my tongue, accusation, my own lies, and maybe hers.
And when I pull back, my anger, my own torment over my actions, her trust, her possible sins and mine, have shifted the mood between us. Intensity that wasn’t there moments before pulses between us, a living thing, a band wrapping us, pulling us closer but in a dark, volatile way. Her hands grip my arms, fingers flexing into my skin. Our breathing is ragged, heavy. I scoop her up, aware of how naked she is but for her thigh highs and her high heels, aware she is mine to own now, and mine to destroy if I so please. And she doesn’t know it. There is something powerful and arousing about this idea that I’m pretty sure makes me a sick f*ck, and I’m accusing her of being no better, she just doesn’t know it. But I reject the guilt that pierces a tiny part of my black, steel heart for her and her alone. I’ll make being owned feel so good for her.
I carry her to the living room, but I don’t take her to the couch. I take her to the rug in front of the fireplace and lower her to her feet in front of me. She reaches for me, and damn, as much as I crave those hands on my skin, I resist and catch her wrists.
“You touch me when l say you can touch me from this point forward.”
Her eyes flash with defiance. “And if I don’t agree?”
“Then I don’t touch you.” I walk her to me, her elbows bending, arms resting between us. “We both know what you want from me.”
“Which is what?” she demands, a hint of vulnerability in her voice that I find sexy as hell.
“An adrenaline rush. The kind that pushes your limits but comes with a burn for more tomorrow, not with the regret your nerves fear I’ll give you. But your hard limit pushes for just that. It says, all or nothing tonight. It says, go there now or there is no chance to go there later. I won’t go there now just to live up to your hard limit.”
“I didn’t set sexual limits. I set a time limit.”
“If you didn’t have a sexual limit, you wouldn’t have gotten spooked earlier and you wouldn’t have gone untouched for two years.”
“That two years has nothing to do with us tonight.”
“It does to me. You have limits. Someone broke them.”
“I don’t have limits tonight.”
“Except one night. And that creates a limit for me. I won’t take you too far and find out it’s too far, too late, to turn back time. Consider that my new hard limit, added to my promise to make you want more than tonight. Because I do.”
“If you plan to treat me like a delicate flower, this ends now.”
“I don’t do delicate flowers, sweetheart. Cowering females don’t get me off. But you aren’t that, and you do. You get me off, Faith. But submission isn’t weak. It’s fearless. It’s pleasure. But it’s also trust.“

This is the second part of the white lies duet.
Well after finishing book one, curiosity won out along with the hope that book two would have more speed.
I discovered who was the real murderer of Faith s mother and Nicks father, all secrets are revealed but alas it was very slow going with a heck of a lot of dialogue.
In theory the plot was interesting but it dragged on and I was losing interest numerous times despite the hot scenes.
Curiosity killed the cat so they say.
A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland
The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.
Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.
The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.
The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
"Your the colour in my black & white world".
The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.
Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all.
I loved this book, it was funny and hot in all the right places.
Drew came off as egotistical at first but that doesn't last long as you begin to swoon at his sexy ways, his dirty mouth and off the cuff comments with Emerie. He's a hot suit divorce lawyer who has relationship issues after being burned by his ex wife and as a result only has male clients, its like he's on a mission to seek justice for all men who has been wronged in marriage.
Emerie had just started a new business as a relationship councillor, she's been in love with her professor now friend for years, she even moved across state and into the apartment next door when she found out he was single again but that was short lived when Baldwin got another girlfriend, he never gives her the inclination he feels the same way, parading his one night stands or new girlfriends around her while also giving her hope by taking her out for dinner and calling at her apartment, its the typical example of unrequited love.
Drew Jagger has had a series of bad New Years eve's but the one where he finds a stranger in his office with her skirt round her ankles threatening Krav maga skills just may be the turn around and end to his bad New Years eves he needs and a new beginning for both of them.
I loved these two characters, the banter, the chemistry, the Witt, the sassiness, the hot moments that develop and the plot is one of those that has you hoping for a happily ever after to come after the drama.
Great read I loved the writing style told in dual pov's and looking forward to reading more from Vi Keeland.
I listened to Egomaniac on audio, the narration was good and I stayed engaged in the plot.

Dash Hennessy is the hottest bachelor in the country, looking for love in front of an audience of millions… He just wasn’t supposed to pick ME!
I just landed my dream summer gig: working as a production assistant on TV’s smash-hit reality show, Ever After. Two months of sun and fun at the beach? Sign me up! Until the moment I come face to face with this season’s bachelor, racing’s bad boy Dash - aka, the mysterious hottie I just hooked up with at a creepy motel off the I-80.
Can you say, awkward?
Dash is sexy, charming - and totally off-limits. But the chemistry between us is way too hot to ignore. He’s playing to win, and he’s got his sights set on the prize: me!
Soon, the action is heating up off-screen. But between ratings-hungry producers, back-stage drama, and twelve of the most cutthroat glamazon contestants known to womankind, I’m in way over my head. Can I find my happily-ever-after, or will it be lights, camera, heartbreak?
The Bachelor gets a rom-com twist in Katie McCoy’s hilarious, sexy new read!
Delectable Dash. This hot Bachelor had me swooning,laughing and finishing with a happy sigh.
I'm not a fan of reality show reads but there wasn't an ounce of cheese present in hot bachelor & I loved it.
Great characters, Dash and Paige first meet on a flight, Paige has a take no shit attitude and her first impressions of Dash with stewardesses fawning over him and his laughable chat up lines don't go down well with Paige.
Through bad weather and turbulence their flight ends up at a completely different destination to where they need to be.
Paige and Dash need to get to New York.
Paige has to arrive at her new job on the set of a top reality dating show as a PA, the show needs someone right away so if she's a no show there's no job.
Dash is also on route to New York, there's just one problem there's only one hire car left.
Paige and Dash end up sharing the same car. The chemistry is sizzling and they stop over at a hotel and just when things were heating up Dash receives a call and within minutes disappears in a helicopter leaving Paige hoping her handsome stranger will use her number and call her.
It's a small world!
The dating show takes place in the Hamptons and Paige is not only in charge of three of the beautiful girls who are set to meet the shows bachelor but she is to assist the bachelor to when needed and it doesen't take a brainiac as you read on who the suitor on the show is going to be and about to climb out of the limo. Yep, Dash, Paige's handsome, hot stranger.
Dash isn't cocky, he's fun,flirty, honest and his back story as a race car driver and his motives for doing the show is heartwarming.
I liked both characters and really enjoyed the plot, both characters predicaments in the story was entertaining, Dash had to date girls with Paige looking on while trying to steal small moments with each other, the chemistry they both had and attraction was hot.
A contract is a contract, Dash has to continue with the show and Paige needs the job. The timing of cupid sucks for these two, but it does eventually lead to a swoon-worthy hea.
I started hot bachelor and read it straight through I was so hooked.
My first book by this author and I would definitely read more. Recommended rom-com told in dual pov's.

Yes, that’s really my name.
The irony is not lost on me.
I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.
Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.
And why would I want to?
One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.
No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?
How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?
Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.
I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.
Hearing what they tell me.
Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.
My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.
Wow, If there ever was a book that I could point and say try that, it takes your mind for a spin, this is it!
DEVIL is like taking an adventure in a dark mansion, you open one door to discover something, then open another to discover something else and all the time your waiting for something to sneak up on you and say GOTCHA!
A psychological thriller, could you class it as romance? I'm not sure but there is romance within, in its own dark and twisted way.
I want him to squeeze and punish me. Thrust into me and cause the skin to break as the rock tears into me. I find beauty in pain and darkness because of the horrors that bestowed me in the light.
This is the story of Evi, the story begins in one of her sessions with her psychologist, she is being taken back in time to a traumatic experience. Dead people in her family home, a knife wound to her stomach, waking up in hospital and not remembering anything.
Sexual urges, a history of abuse, the story unravels slowly in a creeping way keeping you o edge.
Your taken on a journey through the unfathomable and dark mind of Evi as she tries to figure out what is real and what is fabricated, what is past, what is present and it's enough to make the hairs on your neck come to attention.
Can a flower blossom in dry earth where nothing grows?
There's twist and turns shocks, discoveries and disclosures, I cant even begin to sum this book up other that recommend you take a trip through the darkness that is the mind of Evi end enjoy.
"My past has me by the throat . I'm in a choke hold, gasping, begging for air."
He closes the space with another step towards me
"I want to pull a little peace of heaven down just for you so you feel the beauty in the world."

I’m an animal, a member of the Sin City Outlaws motorcycle club that isn't capable of human compassion. So I’ve been told anyway.
Raven is my club’s prisoner. I’ve been ordered to break her. It should be easy given my violent history. But being this close to a woman—this woman—for the first time in a long time, is like sharing company with the demon Lilith herself.
She’s my perfect toy. Filled with a dark rage. Blessed with perfected beauty. Sinfully sweet and wickedly divine. Everything about her solicits the demons inside me
I want to hear her screams. I want those big, dark eyes looking up at me—silently begging me for mercy. I want to be her heaven…and her hell.
My desire for her is forbidden. My infatuation is illicit. I’m betraying my club.
And if the wage of my sin is death, then this woman is going to get me killed.
4, Nobody is un-redeemable stars
Raven; kidnapped as a girl, caged, starved, made into a weapon, taught to kill or be killed.
Machete, the enforcer for Sin City Outlaws, a man of no mercy who revels in torture techniques and the effects, until Raven.
Raven is captured by the MC, taken to a bunker and Machete is the one who has to get this tough nut to crack so they can find out the whereabouts of her trainer and previous captor Cross.
Machete's attempts at getting information from Raven fail, he is drawn to her darkness that matches his own and the man who you wouldn't think is capable of love begins to fall.
We were two insane people stuck in a sane society. Little do they know we're more dangerous together than apart.
Illicit is a delightful dark read with two wrong people couldn’t be more right.
I enjoyed the journey, the characters, the hotness, the danger and the action everything I love in an MC read.
Told in dual pov's and leads to a hea.
To those who ride or die! No matter how crazy the ride may get.

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Words destroyed me.
“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”
“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”
“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.
Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.
In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”
The ultimate showdown. Mother versus Father. Nature versus Nature. Heart versus sole.
Part two following on from the Darkest Sunrise and book one must be read first.
This story is amazing! Aly Martinez has written a beautiful heartwarming story that will pull your heart through a shredder, heal it then just for kicks make you laugh out loud.
An amazing rollercoaster read.
A mother who lost her son only to find him again , a father who was given a son only to lose him and in the midst courts, custody cases, anger, two people who cant fight their love for oneanother and a sick little boy with a heart condition.
The Darkest Sunrise is like a soap opera playing out before you that you can't help but feel apart of and feel every raw and heartwarming moment it entices.
I laughed, cried and loved every unforgettable moment in this Duet.
Highly Recommended Read told in dual pov's with characters that steal your heart, make you laugh, share their pain and celebrations on a journey that began with darkness.

HE CAN TAKE THE HEAT.
Hot, hard-bodied Sixten Rapp is a former SEAL who’s raring to begin his brand-new civilian life. He and his Navy “brothers” start a security firm that offers the kind of services only a team of military-trained professionals can provide. But nothing prepared Six for his new client: an innocent woman on a mission to improve thousands of lives. . . unless someone takes hers first.
CAN SHE HANDLE THE FLAMES?
Dr. Louisa North knows time is against her as she tries to create a “miracle” medical treatment for a disease with no known cure, until she creates a sample so powerful that the wrong people want to use it as a chemical weapon. At first, Six is unwilling to accept Louisa as his client. But soon he realizes that the danger is real and that there’s much more to this plain-Jane scientist…including a burning passion between them that neither of them can resist. And now that an enemy is on Louisa’s trail, Six will do whatever it takes to protect her―or die trying.
"I just never saw stars Like I do with you"
Under Fire is the first book in a new exciting series by Scarlett Cole, filled with suspense and action, oh & hunky ex forces guys.
Ex military service man Sixton; AKA Six and his best friends from his school years have served in the forces together, saved lives and money for their future and now having all left the forces together have gone into partnership with their own security firm.
One of their first jobs is security at a charity event where Louisa, a scientist is a speaker for the evening on behalf of the research company in her bid to raise money for the research into the cure of Huntington's disease, something close to home for Louisa AKA Lou with the loss of her father.
Six and Lou hit it off straight away and she finds she is at ease around him instead of having her usual anxiety and in days to follow bumps into Six again where a friendship develops.
Louisa is a shy, timid person, she doesn't like crowds or being around people, she has her own laboratory were she works and prefers to be alone. Louisa has many issues along with traits of OCD which is how she realised someone had moved things in her lab.
Lou goes from thinking she's being paranoid to then needing the help of Six and his friends when someone breaks into her house.
Under Fire is a great and interest plot with likeable characters, steady paced and although there's action, Russian gangster involvement and danger there's no gruesome detail or overkill on bloodshed. (pardon the pun ;-)
It is what it is, A good action romance with entertaining believable scenes, great characters,hotness and cherry on top, leads to a hea.
* Downside for me; Under Fire is told in third person, so it's more like a story for e.g this sentence; THIRD PERSON: As Louisa walked into the room and scanned her surroundings.......
My preference is always first person you feel more connected to the characters with their thoughts and feelings and also alternate pov's per chapter is easier to follow.
e.g FIRST PERSON: As I walked into the room, I scanned my surroundings.....
That's my only negative of this book and that's down to personal preference.
Recommended read for those that love action hero's saving a damsel in distress & Six is one hot lovable action man

Chloe’s scarred face makes her the school’s freak.
Her reflection is a constant reminder of how she got them.
The man who scarred her haunts not only her dreams, but also her reality.
Some nightmares don’t go away in the daylight.
Two men stand up to save her from the nightmares.
Both are men of the mafia, waiting behind a door she doesn’t want to open.
Amo the soldier and Lucca the underboss.
The Beast and the Boogieman.
Who will she choose?
Previous books to be read first. Not a standalone.
Chloe is the girl who seems afraid of her own shadow, her secret haunts her. Was she really in an car accident? what really happened that night she woke up in hospital with scars, her dad changing and unable to look at her.
I'm enjoying this young mafia series that's within a school setting and Chloe is still a mystery to me although I have just finished this book. I'm looking forward to the next book now that I have a bit more background on Chloe, Amo and Lucca and presume all will be revealed.
These are Chloe's thoughts told in third person and most of the scenes have already bee told in previous books with a few extra and it leads up-to what I hope is Chloe getting more acquainted with Lucca or Amo, I don't care at this point this girl needs someone to help her get her confidence back and a backbone. .
Chloe as a character?; I'm on the fence, although I know something bad really happened to her, I still found her a to be an overly timid and whiny character also annoying, whereas previous female characters had a bit of backbone.
looking forward to the next book, Amo has become protective and head over heals in love with Chloe, hes protected her in school and fallen for her and Lucca is the scary bad guy, Nero's brother who is older and second in command in the mafia and someone Chloe although afraid of him can't help but feel drawn to him, so which way will it go, I'm looking forward to seeing how it all play's out.
*I Listened to this book on audio which I found exaggerated Chloe's whining and the male sneer voice the narrator sometimes spoke in reminded me of the witch from the wizard of OZ. I did not enjoy this audio compared to previous books with a different narrator and tried to concentrate on the plot, I also prefer first person not third.

I will always finish a book by these two authors with a wtf did I just read face but I can’t help it, it's my guilty pleasure, it's exciting, I like the shock factor, the unpredictability and the unexpected.
Benny now Benjamin or Monster returns with a new friend equally as sick, with his own fetishes and his own darkness.

Another gripping,gritty and cringing read and I loved it.
Looking forward to the next book.

Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend her school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now Samantha has to live with them. The problem is that she doesn't care at all: about them, about her friends, about her cheating boyfriend, or even about her parent's divorce. But maybe that's a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.
Highschool drama,hormones,bitching, boys, cheating and homelife it's all going on in Samantha's life and fallen crest high.
Samantha or Sam finds out her mum has been having an affair moves in with the guy who also happens to be the father of popular party guys Logan and Mason Cade then she finds out the man who raised her isn't her dad at all and her boyfriend has been cheating on her for two years with her best friend.
Sam numbs herself becomes hard, she immediately bonds with the Cade brothers as their future step sister and becomes one of them in their antics but she's not one for wanting to be popular so doesen't want anyone to know in her school.
Sam grows close to Mason, there's a few hot scenes to fan yourself over and the drama is ongoing in Sam's life, interfering parents, the school elite with their own drama's ex best friends and bitchiness, basically it's like a soap opera and it was good watching everything unfold.
I think there's eight books in this series with Sam, Logan and Mason so not sure if I will read them all, it was a good slow burn romance/highschool read but I prefer series's with the focus on different characters in each book.
Four years after the tragic death of his brother Joe, Sonic Idols drummer Si Delaney still struggles to cope with what happened to the man whose shoes he subsequently filled.
A forced hiatus from touring unleashes feelings he's tried hard to push aside, and Si knows he needs to seek forgiveness before he can ever truly move on. Determined to make amends he sets off in search of Joe’s fiancée, Allie.
Can Allie help Si to realise he wasn’t to blame for the tragedy, or will he forever feel like an imposter in Joe’s place?
Such a sweet ending & a heartwarming story.
I was pulled into In His Place straight away the sadness of Si's brothers death, Joe was a drummer in a band set to make it big only he never made it, leaving behind a brother who idolised him, his parents and a fiancé.
Si was also a drummer but was studying at the time of his brothers death and had chosen a different path,his drumming and music was something he enjoyed but not his career choice Si left that to his brother.
Following his brothers death Si was persuaded by the band to take Joe's place and little did he know at the time he would also end up wanting to fill his brothers shoes with the woman he left behind to.
Allie had been Si's crush since he was 16 but he loved her like the sister she was going to be and hid his feelings.
Allie lost the love of her life the boy she met on holiday that turned into more than a holiday romance, Joe was her soulmate and she couldn't move on she blamed herself for not being there the night he died until Si years later visited her, guilt had eaten at both of them for not being there for Joe and each of them thought one blamed the other through unsaid words in a time of grieving that eventually got to be said.
In his Place is a heartfelt and heartwarming read, the progression to Allie and Si finally giving in to their feelings and following their hearts instead of being consumed with guilt was moving and an emotional journey.
Si isn't the typical rockstar character I've read about in other rockstar reads, I mostly prefer cocky,arrogant characters who change when they meet the one but Si is sweet from the start, yes he's a single guy so he loves the ladies but he's also a family guy with his parents, he's loving,caring, honest and you can't help but fall in love with his character and cheer him on hoping he finds love.
Told in dual pov's and leads to a hea, a perfect Sunday read, no angst,drama, or violence not as hot as I prefer but the plot didn’t fall that way to justify lots of sex in this story. This is the second book in the series but can be read as a standalone.
Lisa J Hobman writes this series set in the UK it's refreshing as a British reader to read from an author who's characters and the location is also in her home country when so many writers from other countries like the UK build the plot characters etc around the U.S. so In His Place was a pleasant change and nice reading about familiar locations and phrases.

To break a heart is easy.
All you have to do is reach in, wrap your blood covered hands around it, and pull.
This happened to me.
Two hands, both red as my hair, did this exact thing.
Tore it away like it wasn’t made for me.
Maybe it was his to take?
Because years on, with those same blood red hands, he still has it.
In his hands.
And he won’t give it back.
But the real question is, do I want it back.
He is dangerous, uncontrollable, and downright sexy.
I fell for it all, but in the end, he didn’t catch me he let me fall.
Lotus’ eyes were red, her hands bunched into fists. Blood covered my clothes. She looked me up and down then demanded to know how the blood got there—she wanted answers. Answers I couldn’t give her, they weren’t mine to give.
Walking away, I heard a thump. The noise was loud, so deafening, it echoed around this quiet house. Walking back to her, I noticed she was on the floor. Lotus’ head was down, and there was a mass of curls covering her face. She also had her hands tucked under her stomach.
What was she doing?
Was she okay?
I walked over to touch her, to make sure she was all right. The moment my blood-stained hand touched her, she stood, and moved away quickly from my grasp. Then Lotus stared at me, black mascara streaked like rivers down her cheeks, but she no longer shed tears.
Lotus straightened, placing her hands at her sides and both feet in line. Her mask came up, and she was going to hide from me. I knew it. She had done this before and I hated it. It destroyed me every time she did it. Like she was trying to take something from me, that wasn’t even mine to begin with.
I wanted all of Lotus, and, most of the time, I had all of her.
Was it unfair I never told her certain things? Maybe it was.
It was for her own good, though. To protect her.
Lotus’ breathing grew harder. I listened, and it became as loud as a train that rushes through the station at peak hour.
Her mass of curls flowed down over her shoulders, and I wanted to run my fingers through them, the same hands that were now covered in blood.
Looking down and turning my hands over, I realized I needed to wash them. When I left, my hands were covered, but somehow, they have become drenched in blood. At the time, all I knew was I needed to get back to her, so I had no time to clean them—I should have made time—and now I know better.
Looking up again, I noticed Lotus’ mask was fully in position. I wouldn’t be able to break it. Now was not the time. But how could you do that to the love of your life?
She was everything.
She was my everything.
We were the best lovers.
Then we turned.
To the scorned lovers we were now.
There was no denying it, our love could light up a fire unlike any others. But, our love could also scorch everything it touched. The highs were high, so unimaginably fucking high, like jumping from a plane—the adrenaline, the rush—it would sear through my veins.
Then the lows—mean, evil, hate. We didn’t hit a low like some did when they had problems. No, we scorned each other in every possible way to make the other feel as wretched as they could. The whole thing turned into some sort of twisted game.
Who could love the hardest?
Then, who could make you fall the hardest?
Sometimes I thought it was me—that was until today—now I believed it may have been her who fell the hardest.
Maybe she was better at hiding it than me. Because of the look in her eyes. How her green eyes turned a shade darker, her lips lost their color, and her hands fell loosely by her sides.
She listened—I thought she understood.
Maybe she didn’t?
She must have, though, because she walked out taking all the highs and lows with her.
And my fucking soul as well.
That was the problem with loving someone so hard, so fast, so uncontrollably. It was bound to fuck with you. Screw you over, and tear your soul to shreds.
Lotus Vein was my high, but she was also my low.
Plus, she was everything in-between.
We were mad,crazy,uncontrolled lovers who found our way back to one another. Let's hope we don't destroy each other.
Once again TL SMITH has blown me away with her cryptic words, a captivating plot and characters who are immersed in each and you find yourself immersed in them too. TL Smith has the ability in her writing to pull you along with the characters through the angst,hurt,pain and joys and you just have to sit back & enjoy.
Two people who were better off apart than together Lotus & Orion were drowning in secrets and unspoken words their passion for each other the main driving force in their relationship.
Lotus is a second chance romance told in dual pov's. Throughout Lotus I kept thinking about the tv series breaking bad with Orion involvement in creating his own drug and things that take place in the plot.
Orion and Lotus's Love is all consuming, years later, even apart their love hasn't changed.
One touch. One taste it's never been enough.
It was our downfall.
We drowned in each other so badly that the outside world wasn't our problem but it was when we stepped into it seperately.
Lotus has moved on but her thoughts are never far from Orion who she hasn't seen since the night she left as he stood with blood on his hands and unanswered question, letting her go was all he could do to protect her.
Orion returns, his plan is to leave the secret world that tore them apart and get Lotu's back. Secrets have to be revealed and changes have to be made.
I need her like the frosty air. Even after all these years, all the deaths, all the distruction. It's always been her. Always.
A gripping plot with a dark edge, hot passionate sex scenes, suspense, twists and turns and revelations. Lotus is an exciting and gripping read.

New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, brings the heat and heart in a brand-new series of sexy standalone novels, starting with SIN...
Damien Fox lived up to his name.
Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.
Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.
And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.
I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.
He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.
Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.
Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.
One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox...
(SIN is book one of the Vegas Nights series. Each book in this series is a standalone novel.)
Fan me down, This is one Fox I would gladly be hunted by.
Damien fox certainly lived up-to his named sake, his reputation proceeded him, cunning devious,swarve,cocky, a hunter with a perfected craft at getting what he wants.... Until Dalhia.
Dahlia Lloyd is sassy,sarcastic,smart, sexy, confident and nobody's toy to be played with.
Emma Hart doesn't do things by halves, Sin is a brilliantly balanced read, when I laughed, I laughed hard, when the Sex scenes hit, I needed a plunge bath, when the sadness came I was grabbing a tissue. Brilliantly written with great and interesting characters and I couldn't put it down.
About the plot:
Damien Fox on the order of his father was to buy Dahlia's business The Scarlet letter and was told to do whatever it takes to get it.
Dahlia had recently lost her Father, previously lost her mother so at the age of 25 she was the sole owner of The Scarlet letter, a busy bar in Las Vegas & the place where she had many memories of her parents.
Dahlia and Damien first meet when through his persistence Dahlia agrees to meet him but assures him his visit would be fruitless and she has no intention of selling the bar.
Sparks fly when Dahlia and Damien first meet and not in a good way, Damien is the type of guy who rubs her up the wrong way with his cockiness arrogance and you know straight away this is going to be one interesting relationship.
Damien is instantly attracted to Dahlia but this strong willed woman is no pushover and for once Damien Fox has met his match.
I loved it, great characters and secondary characters who were all captivating and interesting, Told in dual pov's, Sin is everything I love in a contemporary romance, hotness,angst,humor a great plot that leads to a hea.
Looking forward to more in this series.

We were to broken hearts, we'd collided somehow, someplace,somewhere. We made sense.

The light and dark side of him are at constant war, but he is letting his darkness reign.
She is trying to find peace, and she will soon be far enough away to find it.
Discovering that his boss owns her, showed him how little he knew her.
Knowing all about him only makes her want to hate him.
I’m a fu**ing made man.
I’m just fu**ing trailer trash.
ANOTHER HOT AND EXCITING ADDITION TO THE SERIES
Vincent is a made man, born of Italian blood & set to make his way up the ranks of the mafia.
Lake is the daughter of a foot soldier within the mafia and best friends of Vincent's sister Adeline.
This isn't your typical girl begins to fall for best friends brother type of read this is best friends brother making a claim on what he wants and what he wants is lake.
Lake has dreams of going away to college, she lives with her dad and also stays with her mum and stepfather she has hidden years of mental abuse by her step father and step sister from her father and all those that truly love her, she wants to escape the nightmare and also be free from any mafia links of her father, she no longer wants to be owned or controlled by anybody.
lake discovers that her father owes the mafia boss a lot of money through gambling and to rescue him from a death penalty she surrenders her college fund and in the process becomes indebted to the mafia and her dreams of college are a distant memory.
Vincent comes to lake's rescue more than once and the two become close. Vincent is a man-whore a single guy with a reputation who also loves the mafia life and the power, until lake he had never seen himself with a girl more than one night and fights his desire for her until he can't fight anymore.
Vincent is an alpha male,bossy,demanding,dangerous but has a softness when it comes to lake.
Lake doesn't want to be owned by anybody and the fight to make lake his is on.
I love these characters the possessive alpha males the man banter, I also love the closeness of the girls in this series, Adeline, Chloe,Elle and Maria.
The plot begins with lake at school being bullied by her step sister and all the characters in this series so far are in there late teens, so not the usual mafia type read with Nero,Vincent and Almo all in the lower ranks of the mafia family as sons of higher Boss's.
Fans of LJ Shen would also love this series.
Contains fan yourself hot scenes, action,angst and has a hea

Large. Hot. With a pump of sexual tension.
When the barista next door teams up with a slick ad executive in this sweet standalone novel from USA Today bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt, they both get a taste of unexpected love.
Terri Cooke wishes she could give Mick Wentworth a piece of her mind. The infuriating stud muffin walks into her coffee shop every morning expecting his regular order at 8:57 on the dot, without ever acknowledging Terri’s presence—except for staring at her cleavage. And yet she can’t deny that Mick Wentworth has an animal magnetism that’s stronger and richer than any espresso . . . which explains why Terri says yes when he suddenly, inexplicably asks her out.
After the morning coffee run, Mick’s day is all downhill from there. His family’s marketing firm is dysfunctional in more ways than one, so to save the business, Mick desperately needs to impress their newest client. When he learns that Terri’s a fan of their trendy product, he tries to get inside her head. It doesn’t hurt that she’s the barista he’s been lusting after for the past five months. But as things heat up with Terri, Mick finds that a little steam is just the jolt he needs to turn his whole life around.
Don’t miss any of Jamie K. Schmidt’s seductive novels:

NECESSARY EVIL | SENTINEL’S KISS
“A turbo-paced, gritty, highly sexual thrill ride.”—Bestselling author Jamie Beck, on Necessary Evil
The Club Inferno series
HEAT | LONGING | FEVER
“A fabulous series that’s hot enough to set your e-reader on fire . . . Club Inferno is one playground you’ll never want to leave!”--USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy

“A fun and sassy romance you’ll want to last forever.”--New York Times bestselling author Claudia Connor
This standalone novel includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title. (less)
My fist book by this author, & I'm so glad I took the plunge.
The cover: Although I like the cover of this book I don't think it represents the character Mick who was not a smoker and seemed younger and more clean cut.
Terri & Mick first meet when Terri works in a coffee shop and Mick is a regular.
Mick is the typical suit with no manners and Terri is the sort of person who is rubbed the wrong way by his actions especially when he clicks his fingers to get her attention.
What starts off as a hate relationship turns into pleasant fantasies, Mick thinks Terri's sassy attitude is hot while Terri just fancies the pants of him. The dancing around each other lasts for 6 months until The coffee shop does catering for Mick's company and they begin to spend time with each other instead of the quick awkward early morning greetings.
Stud, although Mick comes across as a playboy in the beginning, a rich and handsome guy who can get any woman he wants you discover as the plot progresses there's more depth to Mick, he's dedicated to his business, has family issues with his deceptive mother and father and a brother who can't keep it in his pants.
Terri, I liked Terri, a down to earth woman, unable to work the job she trained for in marketing she's working two jobs that suit her in hours so she can take her older sick brother to appointments, she works to pays bills and for her sick older brothers treatment.
A big marketing deal with a gaming company has Mick a little out of his depth until he discovers Terri is a gamer and knows her stuff.
This is one of these stories were good things happen to good people and bad ones get their just deserts.
Stud is hot in all the right places, has humor and is balanced out perfectly with the drama and other things that take place, so you never reach any dips in the plot and interest is piqued throughout.
I have some knowledge of the gaming world but for someone who doesn't some parts in the plot talking about characters, expansions packs and how the game works could lose a readers interest, that I found was the only negative.
Stud is an enjoyable hot read with great character's and told in dual pov.

Eight years ago, Cole Van Buren left me at the altar without a single explanation. My heart’s been at a standstill ever since, the anger keeping me from moving on. Keeping me from seeing the man who’s been right in front of me all this time…
Andrew’s been the friend I needed, the one constant through the hardest times of my life. But one night, the lines blur and we’re tipped into something more. Just when I’m ready to explore what we could be…
My ex comes back.
Cole says he didn’t come to get me back, but I should know better. The answers he dangles overhead are the ones I need to finally let go.
Except there’s no such thing as closure, only a past that wants to pull you backward.
A cycle we can't break. A story without an end.
An entrancing read by Veronica Larsen.
I was completely captivated by the writing style,the creativity,the plot and the curiosity of how this story of Mila was going to play out. What started as a straight forward woman jilted at the alter, a woman unable to move on and still in pain even after eight years turned into a spiders web of unanswered questions, revelations and decisions.
So in love looking forward to marrying the man who was her whole world Mila stood in the church without a groom and now eight years later still has no answers until Cole suddenly returns.
Mila had tried to move on with her life she has a best friend Andrew who she also works with and they first meet when in anger Mila goes out to purposely have a one night stand with a stranger only she spends the night crying on his shoulder.
Drew and Mila had been friends ever since but recently things began to shift and they were on the verge of something more.
This is where I thought Oh no this is going to be a love triangle, don't get me wrong I love those I like the angst and torturous decisions the characters have to make but this wasn't like that at all for any reader who looks at love triangles with dread.
The Edge of us is a captivating story one that takes you on the journey with the characters, deals with healing, broaches on the subject of addiction, pain and unworthiness, it's a read that gives you hope for the characters as it progresses and has you sighing happily when it reaches the happily ever after.
An enjoyable read told in dual povs. No heavy drama, angst or cheating The Edge of us is a story you can feel a part of and get engrossed in.

Someone once told me that happiness is fleeting.
I can see now that he was right. I’m trapped in a black hole of darkness I can’t seem to crawl out of. My twin and my lover want each other dead and I’m pregnant with a baby I don’t know how to protect.
Ryland says he will do anything to get me back, but how do you trust the man who almost killed you? When every option before you comes at a cost, how do you choose the right path?
People say that history has a way of repeating itself. Six years after the fact, my father’s actions are still haunting me. When I learn about an old debt yet to be settled, everything changes. It might not matter who I trust anymore when my every breath brings me one step closer to the end of this twisted game.
A BRILLIANT FINALE FOR BRIGHTON AND RYLAND
ECHO to be read first
From finishing Echo and the cliffhanger finish I couldn't wait to jump into Stutter. I am loving A Zavarelli's books having just read all the mafia series.
Ryland and Brighton's relationshiop was founded on lies and revenge on Rylands part he had a plan but plans changed when he started to fall in love with Brighton and revenge didn't seem so important anymore.
In Stutter Ryland is desperately miserable and wants the woman he loves back in his life and will do anything to get her.
Another gripping read filled with suspense,danger, twists and turns and off the charts hotness. The plot has the mafia feel although Ryland has no involvement in organised crime he is simply a ruthless business man with an Alpha possessive streak and now trying to make amends for his wrongdoings.
I am more than happy with the outcome of Ryland and Brighton's roller-coaster journey to their hea and I look forward to more books by A.Zavarelli
recommended read told in dual pov. I listened on Audio and the narration is brilliant.

Jordan Steele’s life began when he was ten. When he was taken from his parents and a house that was never a home. When he met his brothers, the other lost and abandoned boys in his group home. When he learned what friendship and family and love looked like.
Now he’s made good, touring the world with the band he and his brothers formed in that crowded group home. No one but his found family really knows the man under the fame and fortune, the scars he hides behind the rockstar lifestyle. Until he sees her through the windows of the National Ballet, dancing, and suddenly the world doesn’t seem so dark.
Aleksandra Artemov ticks all the ballet boxes. Father a legendary Kirov dancer. Check. Prepping since birth for classical ballet. Check. Compulsive control over the food she eats. Check. Principal dancer at The National Ballet of Canada. Check. But what she craves is freedom.
She craves Jordan.
Everything about him should terrify her. His size, his tattoos, his edge. But he doesn’t. He stirs her very soul. Jordan has nothing but himself to offer her, and he's never been good enough for anyone. Can he figure out how to face his own demons before he loses his light for good?
This is how the famous rock-star viewed himself. Jordan had come from an abused background and endured how no human being should be treated let alone a child. The story does not go into full details of Jordan's abuse and does not involve sexual abuse but gives you an idea of how he was treated before he was rescued and put into care.
Lexi is a ballerina with issues of her own, an abusive father who once was in the ballet until an accident and pushes Lexi to be where he never got in his career.
I loved both of these characters both humble,likeable and lovable. Jordan is a rocker with a soft heart who battles with his worthiness to be loved and you can't help but melt at some of the things he says and does. They first meet when Jordan see's Lexi dancing in the studio and he watches her through the window and keeps returning to watch her dance.
"Lexi just twirled into my life and she's like a light I've been living without. But I'm terrified that my darkness will dim her somehow".
Jordan reclaimed is a beautiful and heartfelt story with great secondary characters, I loved the fact that Jordan shared a home with his band-mates, they had all been in care together, they were family and took care of each other.
I'm looking forward to reading about more of these guys and hopefully getting a glimpse of seeing how Lexi and Jordan continue on their journey.
Told in third person, relating the experiences of the characters alternately. As a reader my preference is always dual pov's, first person because you get into the thoughts and feelings of the character, feel more connected and it took me a while to get used to the writing style told like a story but I finally adjusted and enjoyed it.

He’s got every reason to be cocky . . . until a female cuts him down to size.
I’m Dallas Easton, the best goaltender in the league. I make a damn good living playing hockey, and with women falling at my feet wherever I go, why not enjoy it? I get whatever I want, whenever I want—that is, until I come across the one player who gets the best of me on the ice.
When I try to pummel the dude, all hell breaks loose. Imagine my surprise when the helmet comes off to reveal a woman underneath. And not just any woman, but the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen.
Callie Davis is the complete opposite of the puck bunnies I usually go for, a good girl with sick moves and a selfless streak a mile wide. I need to make amends, but she dodges me at every turn. It doesn’t help that Callie’s brother hates my guts, or that my agent thinks she’s bad for my career.
But I could care less what they think. I can’t let our little run-in on the ice be the end of our story. Because when I set my sights on something, I won’t rest until I score.

Another great read from L.P Dover
This is the second book in the series and with little snippets from the lives of the other players and Dallas's sister, I am definitely looking forward to more in this series.
Blocked features Dallas who is a player on and off the ice and has a reputation with the ladies. Then there's Callie the sister of one of the players, Callie is a nurse and first meets Dallas when her brothers rope her in to a practice on the ice, Dallas thinking she's a guy loses his temper with her and they nearly come to blows until realizes the person behind the helmet who keeps getting the puck past him is a girl.
Callie has grown up with brothers and has seen all of them go through girls and recognizes a player when she see's one. Dallas is instantly drawn to Callie and tries everything to get her to talk to him but she's a tough nut to crack.
Blocked is an enjoyable story, everything I love in a contemporary romance and you don't have to be a fan of ice-hockey to read this series, each book has been focused on the main characters and the issues at hand.
I loved the characters Callie was sweet and like-able their were a few hot moments and I thought the book was balanced out great with no dips as you can sometimes get in some books, I was happily turning the pages. I have enjoyed every book I have read from L.P Dover.
I will definitely read more in this series and look forward to it.
Told in dual pov's, no heavy drama and leads to a hea. Can be read as a standalone.
