                                  RELEASE BLITZ                                             BRUTAL SIN by EDEN SUMMERS

 

Title: Brutal Sin
Author: Eden Summers
Series: Vault of Sin #3
Release Date: 7th August, 2017

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS:


Falling in love will be brutal.

Bryan is ruthless, heartless, and more than a little proud of his notorious reputation, until his bad attitude threatens to strip him of the one place he can’t live without. His sanctuary. The Vault. The exclusive club is the only place he feels at home, and he’ll do whatever it takes to reclaim what is his. Even if it means asking for help from the woman who landed him in trouble in the first place.

Pamela may have become weak-kneed over Bryan’s talented hands once before, but this self-empowered widow isn’t stupid enough to want more from the sanctimonious ass. Nope. At least that’s what she tells herself before he turns up at her café, offering to refresh her memory on his skilled fingers and filthy words in exchange for a favor.

He needs her to set things straight in the Vault. She needs him to satisfy the cravings of fulfillment she’s been missing. It’s a match made in hedonistic heaven, until hostility turns to lust, and lust into passion, capturing them both in an emotional web neither one of them want to be ensnared in.

Warning: This is an exhibitionist’s playfield and a voyeur’s delight, but dominance always rules. Throw in teasing, torture, and a gag or two, and you’ve got yourself another night of debauchery within the carnal walls of the Vault of Sin.

REVIEWED BY TRACEY LOU ON BEHALF OF KFF

The third instalment of this series landed on my kindle and I cannot tell you how excited i was. Here was i wondering how the patrons and owners of The Vault  of Sin had been faring after all this time.

Bryan Munro was the third business partner of the trio and this was his story–also known throughout the club as Brute. Why, you ask? I would say because of his detachment to the women he pleasured, his arrogance and his fear of commitment.

Pamela is one of the patrons of the Vault who is still mourning the loss of her husband. The one man who could fill all her sexual demands and the pleasures of her mind and body. Coming to the club was her way of trying to find that fulfilment again and to her disappointment, she was finding it hard in finding that someone to sate her hunger.

About to give up and dissolve her membership to the club,someone came up with the most perfect solution. Mmm I wonder what it is? The sexual chemistry between these two characters was smoking hot. Her body was so attuned to his that he only had to come near her for her body to react. He in turn could read her body language like the expert he was. He was so confident in his pursuit of her I don’t think any warm blooded female would deny him anything; me included!

This was a story about overcoming issues, battling insecurities and finding the one person you can’t live without. I gave this book 4 stars as I felt the author could have added more to this story. It took me a little while to get in to and when I did, it was coming to the end. After reading the first two books in this series which I absolutely loved by the way, I felt this book just lacked that something I had found in the first two.

• SYNOPSIS •

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.

*** Spoiler warning ***

Mila, Cole and Andrew. This is a story about three people but this is not your typical run-of-the-mill love triangle. Cole is an artist, he met Mila at a party thrown by her mentor. Mila is a successful businesswoman, she is strong, guarded and fierce. She was raised by her mother who reads tarot cards for a living. Andrew is Mila’s business colleague, he is her rock and provided her a shoulder to cry on at the lowest point in her life. He is her best friend but he also has more to his past.

The initial attraction between Mila and Cole was obvious right from the start, they date, fell in love and got engaged. They thought their strong bond was enough to resist temptation and withstand any opposition from families and friends but they were wrong. On the day they were supposed to get married Cole disappeared. Mila met Andrew that same day at a bar when she was drowning out her sorrows from being ditched at the altar.

Eight years on and Mila is now a very successful businesswoman and Andrew stuck by her side as her loyal best friend and as a work colleague. The sudden appearance of Cole throws her out on a loop. All these years she bitterly tried to forget what he did, she wanted nothing to do with him and yet she needs to know why it happened. And one night whilst hanging out with Andrew she sees him at a different light. Will she give Cole a chance to explain why he did what he did? Will she finally look at Andrew not only as her best friend but the man who she can spend the rest of her life with?

I am quite impressed with the author’s style of writing and how she weaves Cole’s art and incorporates it into this brilliant tale of drug addiction, betrayal, loyalty and friendship. Turning the first page is like looking at a blank canvas.  As you keep on flicking through the pages you see the author’s words turn into strokes, swirls and splatters of colours. By the end of the story you look at the whole finished product as a masterpiece, a work of art. Rarely does a book create such vivid imagery inside my head. Some of the sex scenes between Cole and Mila are visually stunning and memorable. I strongly urge you to read this book you surely don’t want to miss out on this one!

5 glittering stars for Ms. Larsen!

She’s the one thing he won’t give up on

The calls started a year ago. I needed an easy release, and he was there, for a price. One call turned into two, and before I knew it, I was falling for the voice on the other end of the line. When he shows up and introduces himself as the newest firefighter on the island, I’m terrified…at first. As the mayor, the last thing I need is a scandal. But Riley won’t take no for an answer, and I’m finding it hard to refuse him.

He’s a distraction she can’t afford

Kate, the mayor of Temperance Falls, has a naughty little secret. Except I’m not so little and a hell of a lot more than just naughty. A year of weekly phone calls with our identities disguised has left me craving more. Being together could ruin everything she’s worked for, but there’s no turning back. Now that we’ve actually met, now that I’ve had a taste, nothing will stand in my way of making her mine.

Every London Hale book can be read in any order, or as a standalone.

Looking for something quick, filthy, and taboo with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating? Sinful Distraction delivers.

Temperance Falls, such a busy little island. You’d think after 6 books I’d be tired of reading about this small island.  Most definitely not, I don’t know how London Hale keeps doing it, but this series just keeps getting better.

Riley and Kate meet through the telephone sex line he works for. Once a week for over a year the calls keep being made and a bond is established. One day Riley, knowing who Kate really is introduces himself to her and reveals who he is.  This one meeting sends the pair of them spiralling through the best Temperance Falls book to date.

“The things he’d said over the phone tonight had been everything I’d been too scared to consider.  And he’d been right—we had a crazy connection that would no doubt only grow more explosive in person.”

Sinful Distraction was sexy and sweet.  Riley had the mouth of a sailor one minute and then the voice of an angel the next. Unlike large cities Temperance Fall cares about the residents there and this is very apparent in this entire series. Discovering how far Riley would go to prove to Kate he was committed, made this book for me.  At times I truly could not read quick enough.  Sinful Distraction was a feast for the eyes and the mind.

“I’m just so worried you’re going to regret us.”

Intriguingly the author leaves crumbs near the end of each book showing the reader who the next couple will be.  I really cannot wait until the next Temperance Falls book is released.

You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you’re the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay’s head spin, you’ve earned the right to your confidence.

When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it’s not a suggestion–it’s an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don’t make it okay.

But I have to admit, she’s got talent. She’s creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can’t help wanting to know everything she thinks. I’ve never met a more talented chef. And I’ve never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.

There’s only one way this push and pull can end.

With her in my bed, begging for more.

It’s no secret that I thoroughly enjoy this author’s books. They err on the side of perfection and Cocky Chef is no exception. I picked one fault with this book, a silly thing that bears no mention in the grander scheme of things. Fans will devour Cole and Willow and if you’re new to JD Hawkins, you won’t look back. Thankfully he has a great back catalogue to tuck into.

I kind of like the cover, it is in keeping with all of Mr Hawkins books. Simple and pleasing to the eye, I think this is what initially draws the reader. Then the blurb, it’s not hard to envisage Gordon Ramsay – only hotter, way hotter. Cole Chambers is the epitome of arrogance to begin with. When faced with the young chef Willow from Idaho I asked myself who exactly the cocky chef was. She exerted a flash of arrogance when they first met and kept up the steady strong woman persona throughout the book. Cole’s temperament was more explosive than Willow’s, she kept her down to earth character throughout. Both characters had been stung before, both in very different ways. Cole had to climb his own mountain with his trust issues and eventually he sees what the reader sees in Willow.

What I especially liked about Cocky Chef was the distinctive imagery that JD Hawkins imparted upon the pages, within his scenes. While it is certainly true that this author can write a scorching hot scene, of which there are many in Cocky Chef, it is also true to say that this man’s words can feed the soul too. My mouth salivated with some of Cole and Willow’s kitchen scenes. The knowledge taken to write such depth about food is quite something. Again, a book full of class and flair. If you are looking for a ‘smutty’ read you won’t exactly find that in Cocky Chef, once again JD Hawkins proves that a title and a cover should not be judged. His written word is impeccable, as always.

But…this book did not light a fire under my butt. Cocky Chef didn’t excite me as much as previous books had. Yes, the story is as fresh as one can be, the characters and plot developed almost perfectly. You can see the acts playing out in formation. And I think this is the problem. I know what I’m getting when I read a JD Hawkins book. There are no rough edges, it’s as contemporary as contemporary comes. No surprises. I didn’t feel much emotion in this book when reading, except perhaps a little happy when Cole and Willow find their way. The struggle didn’t seem insurmountable. Dare I say it – an easy read. For many this is fine, but Cocky Chef didn’t have the edginess I would have liked.

Still, it’s a highly recommended read, as are all JD Hawkins’s books. You certainly won’t be disappointed picking up Cocky Chef, even if just to lick that cover!

 

 

EXCERPT:

She lets out a sigh of relief, but my cock hears something different in her gasping exhale. I bring my thumb slowly to a speck at the side of her mouth, fingers resting on the round perfection of her jawline. She stills under my touch and catches my gaze, time slowing with the deliberateness of my movements.

I brush the speck, but don’t pull away. Instead, I bring my thumb back across those ever-pouted lips, tracing their dip and fullness, letting her feel the texture of hands rough and scarred from a lifetime in kitchens, our eyes locked together in a moment of anticipation, emotions raging like an angry sea against the dam of the distance between us.

Her lips part slightly, I feel her shortening breath on my hand, and I push my thumb between those juicy, perfect lips, fingers pressing against the base of her ear. Her gentle gasp breaks the silence, before she closes those soft lips around my thumb, the sight of them pressing against my skin making my cock full against my pants. Her teeth gently squeezing my nail, tongue flickering as I push the finger inside the hot wetness of her mouth.

My other hand already on her waist, I pull her toward me, press her lithe body up against mine. Those magnificent hips swaying and rubbing against mine, her weight shifting onto me, breasts heaving, nipples so hard now I can feel them through that sweater dress.

“You’re fucking incredible,” I growl. Prelude to pulling her toward me, my finger in her mouth still, angling her head so I can taste the tenderness of her neck, run my sensitive tastebuds down the taut muscles, follow the path that leads me to the front of her chest. Quiet moans getting louder as I run my tongue down the softness of her cleavage, her dress my enemy now as I pull it down and bury my teeth in her breasts.

“Oh God…” she moans. “Cole…”

I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.

I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.

Until I left him.

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
