. . . smokin' hot books from the tame to the taboo!


I read, rate, review and giveaway books in all genres, but I'm partial to smokin' hot romance reads. Join me in my reading adventure! 

 

The Pleasures of Winter - Evie Hunter THE PLEASURES OF WINTER reminded me of a steamy version of the swashbuckling movie, ROMANCING THE STONE… I loved that movie!

When Hollywood heartthrob and notorious womanizer, Jack Winter and reporter, Abbie Marshall find themselves in the middle of a rainforest after their private jet crashes, that is when the games between the unlikely pair really begin!

I wanted to like Abbie, but she made that really hard, especially in the beginning of the book. She wanted Jack to see her as a serious journalist, but she ended up making herself looking kind of like a brat with a sense of entitlement. That is how I expected Jack to act, since he is the famous one on the Hollywood A-List.

Their time in the rainforest lasted barely long enough for Jack to realize that Abbie calls to his inner Dom and for Abbie to realize she needs someone like Jack to teach her all the discipline that has been missing from her charmed life. After have a taste of the pleasures that Winter has to offer, Abbie realizes that her fiancé, William, just won’t do for her any longer. In an interesting twist of six degrees of separation - actually, less, Abbie is unknowingly paired up with Jack the Dominant in a series of online chat sessions to ease her into the BDSM lifestyle. In person, Jack continues to play it cool and Abbie is the one running after him like a good little sub; in that respect, I felt that the balance of power was greatly tipped in Jack’s direction and I would have liked for Abbie to have maintained more of her natural spunk. I felt that her desire for Jack bordered a bit on obsession, but I suppose that is a quality Jack found appealing.

THE PLEASURES OF WINTER was an entertaining read that definitely leans towards the fluffy side of “the lifestyle.” I will definitely be reading the other books in this series as they sound equally as interesting and sexy as this first book in the series.

Ruin - C.J.  Scott For a quick read, RUIN packs in a whole lotta drama!

It’s the classic story line of the small town sheriff’s daughter who is also a “good girl” falls for the vagabond bad boy.
I'm not perfect. Not by a long shot. If my parents knew what I got up to at college, they'd be horrified. I've slept with more guys in the last three years than I care to talk about. I've smoked God knows what, I've skipped class, and last month I woke up in the gutter without any underwear. See? I'm not fucking perfect!
Well, just to be fair, I think most parents would keel over if they knew what their kids got up to in college – there are some things a parent just never needs to know and that would be one of them.

I fell in love with Ben right away. He’s a good guy with a bad boy stigma attached to him and I think he’s just perfect for Kate Bell. She’s not a good girl, but everyone thinks she is… kind of ironic, isn’t it? Ben and Kate both have secrets, Ben’s secrets just happen to be pretty earth shattering. One of his big secrets was really no surprise to me, but despite the predictability, I quite enjoyed the journey.

I will definitely be checking out the follow up book in this new series to see where life takes this sexy young couple.

Pinch of Naughty - Gem Sivad What a cute little quickie!

PINCH OF NAUGHTY was an unexpected delight! I must have missed it in the blurb, but I wasn’t expecting a Historical Western Romance, but that is exactly what I got and I really enjoyed it.

Eleanor Lacey got shafted in the love department. So, when she is forced to flee her hometown in the wake of a scandal, she decides that hooking up with Cyrus Burke, the richest man in the state of Texas, is a good idea. Although she comes from a reputable family, she has taken a position as the maid, cook and bed partner to the man of the house. Cyrus is everything you would expect – he’s gruff, suspicious and demanding and he’s not looking for a wife because they are good for nothing that he doesn’t already have access to in his life. Eleanor isn’t like any of the other housekeepers he has employed in the past and this little fact has Cyrus more and more intrigued every day. She is sassy and spunky and has no time for love, so they are on the same page in that department. So, watching the love-resistant pair fall for each other was incredibly entertaining.

If you are looking for a quickie that burns up the sheets, then, PINCH OF NAUGHTY might be the novella for you!

Rush Me - Allison Parr Although I had to suspend reality a bit for RUSH ME, I loved it nonetheless.

What’s the first thing a group of professional athletes think when a single girl crashes their party and then comes back the next day to “get her scarf”? Of course, they invite her in, welcome her with open arms and tell her to pull up a seat and join them in a game of poker… Errr… OR They call security because they think she is a stalker wanting to get in on some professional athlete action. Yeah, I am with Ryan’s cynical line of thinking on this one, but all his NFL playing buddies take a liking to Rachael immediately like she’s been around all along. Maybe I’m crazy, but that’s the “suspend reality” part – I am sure that all famous people have to be cautious of the “stage-5 clingers”.

Rachael is a down to earth kind of girl and maybe that’s what the guys see in her. She is grounded and has absolutely no interest in securing any private time with the ‘Almighty Ryan Carter – Pro-Athlete’. *Eyeroll* He is so full of himself to even think she is attracted to him! She has more important things to think about than a dead-end romance. *Snort* Oh yeah? Like what? Eventually they can’t deny the chemistry they feel.

RUSH ME is a new adult, sports themed contemporary romance. Snatch it up if those things appeal to you – it’s entertaining and sexy and you’ll be rooting for Rachael and Ryan all the way until the end!

My favorite quote from the book – such great words to live by:

Even with the lows, there’re all those highs. And isn’t that better than a life of mediocrity?

A Moment (Moments, #1) - Marie Hall A MOMENT is one of those books I have had for a while and I just got around to reading it. If you have it, then consider this your call to action! It’s a great book! If you don’t have it, then you have absolutely no excuse, because it is currently FREE at Amazon (as of 8/31/13) .

A MOMENT is sweet and emotional and there is a lot going on with the characters in this book.

Liliana Delgado is lovely. I just want to hug her! She has the weight of the world on her shoulders. After a one-night stand at the tender age of fourteen, she finds herself pregnant and all alone. As the single mother to an autistic 7-year-old living with her sick mother – she is responsible for everyone in her household AND she still manages to get an education. Love is something she just doesn’t have time for, but fate has other plans for her.

Ryan Cosgrove is a tortured soul. His demons are dark and cloying and they prevent him from seeing his life for what it is: a gift. He has a lot of heavy issues to deal with, including bouts of depression, rage, despair, but most recently, love – this is a new emotion for him, but he does not feel worthy of the ones he loves.

In A MOMENT, we catch a glimpse of the man Alex Donovan is. Alex is Ryan’s cousin and Liliana’s best friend. He is protective to the core and deserves better than the hand he has been dealt. Like Lili and Ryan, he has had to shoulder the burden of far too much in his relatively young life.
Ryan isn’t pretty, he’s rugged. All man. There’s nothing soft about him, but it’s no less sexy. Alex may have the market cornered on country-fed, down-home yummy, but Ryan is the kind of guy who makes a girl feel immediately safe and vulnerable and sexy, especially when his hot gaze is all over you, like his is on me right now.

Together, Ryan and Lili find their way in the big bad world and ultimately get their HEA, but hopefully, their story is not over and we will get to see a little bit of them in Alex’s book that is due out soon, called RIGHT NOW. I am anxious for that “country-fed, down-home yummy,” Alex to get his happily ever after.

Claimed in Canada

Claimed in Canada - Christine Edwards
Welcome to the Yukon
A Land of wild beasts
and wilder men.


Praise Jesus for that!

Violet, a researcher who has been blessed with the opportunity to study wolves in the Canadian Yukon, is beyond excited. Apart from the wolves, Violet soon realizes there’s a lot more to be excited about that involves an animal of the human variety. Violet finds herself to be the object of affection for not one, but two very dominant and very determined men; Luke and Damon.

Luke is a logger and all rugged male. Upon their initial brief but interesting interaction, Violet senses there is something very different than she has ever encountered in any other man - Luke has a commanding demeanor that excites and unnerves her at the same time.

Damon, the surgeon is polished perfection. Any girl would be lucky to have him and he is safe, right? Just because he offers financial stability doesn’t mean he is the right man for her.

I loved CLAIMED IN CANADA. It’s a sexy spin on the typical stories of Domination and submission that line the bookstore shelves these days. I am really looking forward to reading more of author Christine Edward’s work, hopefully in the near future.

(Christine, if you read this – Go Cougars! lol… College of Charleston is my Alma mater too!)

Eighteen at Last - Gretchen de la O  photo rollercoaster2_zps07b71afd.gif

Yeah, a roller coaster… an emotional roller coaster. That’s exactly how I felt while reading EIGHTEEN AT LAST; it was way more emotional than I expected it to be.
Sometimes I can’t believe Wilson’s only seventeen. She seems so much older.
Yes, Max, haven’t you heard that girls mature faster than boys? I believe that is a scientific fact (sounds good anyway) – that is why you feel like you are on the same level, because mentally, you are ☺.

The story of Wilson and Max’s forbidden love affair picks up where the first book, ALMOST EIGHTEEN left off. Wilson is still sweet and semi-innocent in the month leading up to her eighteenth birthday – you know the day they can get down and dirty without Mr. Max getting arrested for having sex with a minor? Yeah, eighteenth birthday = really big day! They continue their steamy sessions of heavy petting… and licking… but they do their best to keep their romance on the down-low, but were they sneaky enough to keep their shenanigans secret? I know, but I'm not tellin'.

I loved Wilson, I felt like she had this sweet disposition that made the "girl-next door" title perfect for her. This is kind of how I pictured the Wilson we grew to love from ALMOST EIGHTEEN… the virginal Wilson:

 photo kate_upton_elle_hot_magazine_10-480x620_zpsc892771d.jpg
Bringing his lips to mine, he kissed me like I was a drug he craved more than life.
Thank God! They FINALLY did it! But after a few rounds of doing the nasty, Wilson goes from the good girl next door to a wanton little hussie…
 photo tumblr_m3g9d3zwzq1rvpsb7o1_400_zpse2f0e17e.gif
Ok, well, maybe not quite a slut, but let’s be honest here… SHE DOES NOT MAKE GOOD CHOICES AFTER GETTING UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH DICKIE! It’s like the penis made her stupid too! OH LAWD! Stupid is contagious! I was really disappointed in Wilson’s behavior once she left Max’s family home after they had sex, but honestly, without the drama, it wouldn’t have been as interesting. Predictable outcomes are never very exciting.

Oh Gretchen! Why do you torture us so? A cliffy? Boooooooo! Ok, so the dreaded cliffhanger isn’t terrible, but I am still counting down the days until the release of the third book, BEYOND EIGHTEEN. October 2nd is right around the corner, but I am keeping my fingers crossed for an ARC… *HINT* *HINT*

Almost Eighteen - Gretchen de la O, Eunice Ortegon
Close your eyes and remember what it was like to have your very first schoolgirl crush on your hot young teacher. Having trouble? No worries, Wilson Mooney can help take you back to those glorious days, but the difference is that Ms. Wilson Mooney was actually fortunate enough to have a little taste of her hunky teacher.
They always say teachers shouldn’t touch their students. What a heap of steaming crap. Please, touch me all you want. How do you think he kept me coming back to my government class?

Every girl needs a little incentive to keep her going back to those boring old government classes – the educators of the world would do well to write this down: EYE CANDY MAKES CLASS INFINITELY MORE INTERESTING! Especially the boring ones…

ALMOST EIGHTEEN captured my interest immediately! The story contains elements that can generally lure me in, like forbidden love, a wounded main character and a virginal heroine, but the dynamic characters and amusing story are what HELD my attention.

Our heroine, Wilson is the quintessential innocent, teenaged girl, but nicer. She has had a lot to deal with in her relatively short life, so the fact that she still has a positive outlook on life is amazing in and of itself. The only thing that keeps her going back to her government class is her sexy, young teacher, Max Goldstein. Wilson basically spends her days (and nights) fantasizing about Max… err… Mr. Goldstein. So imagine her delight when she discovers that she and Mr. Goldstein will be in Aspen on the same weekend – of course, she can only dream that their paths will cross. Ha! She has no clue that her fantasy is about to become reality!

I loved Max, but the adult in me wanted to slap him upside the head for putting himself in such a predicament to begin with – GAH! Men and their penises can be so stupid!! I wanted to scream: KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS – HELL-O STATUTORY RAPE! On the other hand, the teenaged girl in me wanted him to quit messing around and to just rip those fucking panties off already!

Max was in a no-win situation. Damned if he does it and damned if he doesn’t.

I loved this book and I've GOT to see what happens next, so, I'm jumping straight into the next book, EIGHTEEN AT LAST, because Dammit! My name is I ♥ Bookie Nookie and I'm jonesing for some of that barely-legal, cherry-poppin’ action!


P.S. Love the cover – I am a big fan of butterflies & the kissing faces (yes, go ahead & go check out the cover again, it took me a minute too) are sheer genius ☺

Steal My Heart - Lisa Eugene What happens when you combine a dirty old hobo and an obsessive-compulsive clean freak? Pure Magic!

STEAL MY HEART is a winner! Author Lisa Eugene combines a bit of humor with a healthy dose of steam and ends up with this romantic treasure. I love it when the most unlikely characters turn out to be a match made in heaven.

Nurse Maggie Lawson is truly fanatical about cleanliness; in fact, I would say it pretty much runs her life. The inner dialogue Maggie has with herself is hysterical; she’s a total nut and I loved her for it! A prime example of her nuttiness upon her recollection of an adventure she had with her BFF, David, to the “grocery store of genital goodies” also known as a sex shop:

He’d teased her mercilessly because of the wig and dark glasses she’d insisted on wearing, and repeatedly assured her that she looked like the only weirdo pervert in the store, especially after she’d spent a great deal of time questioning the manager about the most efficacious ways of cleaning and sterilizing the device she’d reluctantly purchased. After being referred to the manufacturer, she’d finally gotten some answers, and had even made suggestions that he assured her would be added as an insert with the product. She’d been thrilled to offer her expertise on infection control.

When Ex-Navy SEAL, Gabe Masters stumbles into Maggie’s life dressed like a dirty old hobo, she had no idea her boring old life would never be the same - *thank God!* Gabe is all rugged and hot, bossy male, I mean, come on! He’s an Ex-Navy SEAL *RAWR* Enough said! Although they are both intent on denying their mutual attraction, I knew it was only a matter of time. Maggie and Gabe have unbelievable chemistry… I just knew they were going to get it on like a house on fire once they dropped the pretense of disinterest. At first, I felt a little bit sorry for her when her prefect and pristine little world began to crumble like confetti around her – but WAIT! Confetti is fun! Being dirty is fun! Gabe and his dirty boy ways are exactly what Maggie needs in order to learn how fun being dirty can be and I can't think of a better way to illustrate that than with one of my favorite scenes:

“Hmmm…no shower?” He frowned sternly, acting appalled. But his lips twitched with amusement.
“Gabe, please, no teasing…” Her hips started to rock against the finger that dipped into her, and she groaned at the feel of his stiff shaft against her hip.
“But Maggie, we’re so sweaty and…dirty.”
She wanted to kill him…maybe after. “Gabe!”
“Is it okay if we’re dirty, Maggie?”
A wicked smile played on his lips, and Maggie had the feeling he wasn’t speaking literally. Oh shit! Her nipples pebbled hard and her hips bucked.
“Well?”
Her brain was malfunctioning. “What?”
“You want it dirty?” He swirled his finger inside her.
All she could manage was a weak nod.
“Say it.”
“Oh God...Gabe.” She could barely get her tongue to work with what he was doing to her.
“I want to hear you say it.”
“Gabe…”
“You don’t get it if you don’t say it.” He brushed his wet tongue up her neck, inciting a riot inside her.
“I…I want it di…dirty.”


STEAL MY HEART was such a sexy and fun read, filled with quirky humor and laced with a little mystery - an excellent combo in my opinion. This is the second book I have read by author Lisa Eugene and I haven't been disappointed thus far. You can bet I will be stalking her shelf to see what she has in store for the future!

Price of a Kiss - Linda Kage Author Linda Kage kicks up the steam and masterfully weaves a unique story of forbidden love in PRICE OF A KISS. It was just the kind of teasing and pleasing romance I crave and it made me giddy with excitement; I never wanted it to end!

I’m talking about Mason Lowe, that guy you keep sexually harassing with your eyes.

Reese should have known from the moment she set eyes on Mason Lowe that it wasn’t going to work, because, let’s face it, she doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to men and he’s just about the hottest piece of man candy she’s ever seen. She’s still reeling from the fact that her long time boyfriend actually tried to kill her, so why should she think this would be a match made in heaven?

He sells his body for sex.

*Blink. Blink * Say What? Repita, por favor? Talk about dousing the flames of passion with a bucket of ice-cold water, that is totally NOT what a girl wants to hear when she’s drooling and daydreaming about her future husband… well, okay, maybe not husband, but he’s definitely worthy of some really steamy make-out sessions.

A gigolo? No, no, no… That has GOT to be a rumor. Can’t be true, can it? Well, just in case, Reese crams her desires deep down, because that’s a whole bunch of drama she definitely doesn’t need at the moment.

Well, hold on there Miss 'Holier-Than-Thou'; let’s not get out the pitchforks just yet. Gigolo or not, it’s not really fair to pass judgment on another until you know their full story. Reese soon discovers, Mason’s life isn’t all black and white, he is just playing the hand he was dealt – too bad the devil was the dealer and his hand was laced with fire and brimstone.

PRICE OF A KISS was an entertaining read and contains all the elements I enjoy in any romance – a little mystery, great chemistry between the characters and an interesting story line. I am definitely a fan of author, Linda Kage. I quite enjoy her style of writing and from the other books I have read, they are all very consistent and of great quality; so, when I pick up one of her books, I am fairly confident that I will love it! This sexy, new adult themed story is no exception!

Storm Damages (Storm Damages, #1) - Magda Alexander STORM DAMAGES makes good on the title’s promise of mass destruction as a trail of broken hearts are left in the wake of billionaire, bad-boy, Gabriel Storm’s travels all over the world.

Elizabeth Watson is a smart woman. Everything she has ever wanted is within reach, all she has to do is pass the law review and her dream of securing an associate position at her law firm is pretty much a done deal. Her future is secure. Well, it WAS secure until the day Gabriel Storm entered the picture as one of the bigwigs on the opposite side of a half-billion dollar business deal. She knows trouble when she sees it. He’s rich. He’s hot. He’s determined and he is accustomed to getting everything he wants. Lucky for her, he has decided Elizabeth Watson is what he wants. Elizabeth has no intentions of getting tangled up with Mr. Storm; she gives him a wide berth steering clear for the sake of her future at the firm; she knows fraternizing with the opposing team will likely get her booted from her current position and black-balled in the law community. Undeterred by her resistance to succumb to his charm and commanding presence, Gabriel persists in pursuing her with a vengeance.

I like the taste of potent things in my mouth—coffee, brandy, a woman’s honey.

◉ₒ◉ Um… Okay… Hmmm… What was that about Elizabeth’s intentions? Yes, well, we all know that the road to hell was paved with good intentions. Elizabeth talks a good game, but she’s delusional to think he would ever retreat. I have to give it to her; she was doing a pretty good job of holding her own, right up until that panty-ripping first kiss. I suppose I’m not kissing the right men, because MY first kisses usually just involve a little tongue and maybe some on-top-of-the-clothes-groping, but my panties always remain intact. (Me = Jealous!)

STORM DAMAGES was hot! I’m definitely a fan! I have to warn you; there is a bit of a cliffy – not so terrible that you will go insane, but enough of a cliffhanger that I have actually threatened bodily harm to author, Magda Alexander if she doesn’t produce the next installment, pronto! Let’s hope for her sake that book 2 release date is just around the corner.

The Winning Season - Alison Packard A sports themed story plus a bad boy hero and a sassy, no-nonsense heroine equals a stellar combination in THE WINNING SEASON!

I must admit I am kind of a sucker for the ‘famous bad-boy falls for the average Jill’ type story. Isn’t the bad boy to romance readers like apple pie or better yet, baseball is to Americans? I think that is a pretty accurate assessment.

As a life-long fan, Kelly Maxwell is blissfully happy in her dream job as the publicist for the professional baseball team, the San Francisco Blaze. The stars have aligned and everything is just perfect… that is until The Blaze acquires Dodgers bad boy, Matt Scanlon. Although Kelly can admit that Matt is a super-sexy specimen of male perfection, he is kind of a publicist’s nightmare. With all his hard partying and womanizing, he has done a pretty good job at owning the title of “bad boy.” On top of that, his attitude sucks, he won’t do interviews and he doesn’t play well with others. The chip he sports on his shoulder is large enough to rival Mt. Rushmore, but with all that said, he has his reasons.

The more Matt refuses interviews, the more the media wants an interview. Kelly is a tough chick; she has to be tough in this male dominated industry. If she want’s to keep her job, she’s going to have to change her tactics in order to get through to him, but she’s not going to compromise the respect she has earned by being his door just to feed his ego. Maybe he’s not looking for that at all, maybe he just wants her to see him for the man he really is, not that bad boy that got him traded to begin with. The sooner Kelly realizes he is a changed man, the sooner she will get what she wants, but the real question is: What exactly is it that she wants from him?

The chemistry between Matt and Kelly is undeniable and watching them fall was such a satisfying and sexy adventure. If sporty romance reads are your thing, THE WINNING SEASON is a home run that’s sure to hit the spot!

Love Exactly - Cassandra Giovanni, E.S. Tom This was love exactly as it was supposed to be, slow, sweet, and agonizing in its perfect way.

LOVE EXACTLY is a sweet fairy-tale romance complete with a handsome prince that every girl dreams of finding some day.

Emma is a nobody, okay, well, that’s not entirely true. She’s an aspiring author with a penchant for music and a budget for cheap coffee. Who knew that a 99¢ cup of coffee could lead a girl to finding the man of her dreams and a life filled with happily ever afters? I must have missed THAT memo!

Evan, on the other hand, is a “Rock God” with a bad boy image and a heart of gold. *Mark down 3 points for him* One look at Emma was all he needed, he was a goner and totally smitten with this down-to-earth beauty.

LOVE EXACTLY will make your dreams come true if you are jonesing for a love-at-first-sight, bubblegum romance. It’s light on the steam, which makes it perfect for romance lovers of all ages.
