JOKER’S WILD by Renee Rose is LIVE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

HE KIDNAPPED ME. HELD ME PRISONER. 
I knew Junior Tacone was dangerous.
I worked for him once taking care of his mother.
I thought when the job was over I’d be safe.
Out of his awareness. Out of his reach.
But his brother took a bullet and Junior chose me to be his nurse.
So I’m his prisoner, trapped in his beautiful house, subject to his rule.
And it seems he’s developed a thing for me.
Which means he may never let me go…

Note: This steamy stand-alone romance is the fifth in USA Today bestselling author Renee Rose’s Vegas Underground series. No cheating, no cliffhangers.

This is my first book by this author and I’m sure it won’t be the last. This is book number five in the series and features Junior’s story. This can be read as a standalone although I wish I read the other books first because I felt that I needed to know the dynamics of the Tacone family.

Desiree is an ER nurse, she is tough and good at her job. She is divorced and got full custody of her son but her ex-husband took their little boy and has disappeared. She’s still searching for her son and trying to get by with life. Unexpectedly she finds herself holed up in Junior’s house caring for one of the injured brothers. Her conflicting emotions towards Junior put her knickers in a twist, literally.

Junior is the eldest of the Tacone siblings and is in charge of the family business whilst their father is away serving a long prison sentence. When one of the brothers was wounded in a gunfight they have no option but temporarily hijack Desiree’s time. He has met her before and there has always been that attraction between them.

Told in dual points of view, this mafia romance is a quick and easy read. Junior and Desiree’s chemistry is obvious from day one. Actually, it was more of lust at first sight and bonking each other from the first chapter right until the last. This pair’s relationship packs a lot of heat not only from gunfights but more from their trysts in the bedroom, kitchen, foyer, etc… you catch my drift?

I love Desiree’s sassy personality and realistic attitude towards life. Junior’s surly demeanour is justified when you learn his back story. Desiree is the perfect match for his persona, her feisty character balances out his brooding hotness. Although this is a mafia romance, there isn’t a lot of dark drama. The other brothers are quite involved in this book too, and give you a glimpse of how they interact with each other. I admire Junior’s commitment to his family but when he realises he has to make life-changing choices, he gets the job done and gets his girl. Or maybe he waits a bit and then gets his girl. A quick entertaining read that will make you want to read more of the Tacone brothers.

REVIEW ~ BRAZEN (Brazen Duet) by M. Malone & Nana Malone is now available!

BRAZEN, M. Malone & Nana Malone’s first book in the Brazen Duet is now available! Scroll down for Emma’s fan-freakin’-tastic review!

Wham, bam, thank you ma’am? That’s my motto.

There’s no room in my life for anything more complicated than a one-night stand. I’m a bodyguard. It’s easier to put my life on the line when there’s no one worrying if I’ll make it home for dinner.

But then the one woman who made me want more waltzes back into my life needing my protection.

Despite our explosive chemistry, we can’t go there again. What happened in Vegas, has to stay in Vegas.

Except the marriage vows neither of us remember.

The heir apparent to one of the world’s largest perfume companies, Hailey is driven to prove to the world that she has what it takes. Having locked herself and her heart away since one amazing weekend in Vegas years earlier; she has no time for frivolous activities or time wasting. If only whoever is trying to kill her could get the memo, Hailey would be super happy.

‘All kinds of a man. He’d been the only marker I really had for what a man was. But there was something about him now. Something even more self-assured.’ 

Oskar Mueller team player and part of Blake Security, (yes, The Blake Security from the Winston Isles. Yummy Alpha Men) is front and centre in the epic story that is Hailey and her deadly shadows. Only they have a history and that history is far more complex than anyone, especially for the reader, understands.

The hurt is still very real for one and yet both are still forcibly attracted to one another. Magnets would have an easier time staying away from each other than these two. As is always in the case for these writers, there are so many questions that need answering. Why is Hailey’s mother the way she is? Why is her father so protective and secretive? Why does Hailey’s own brother loathe her so much? And who in the heck would want to kill a lab geek who just mixes up perfumes?

Oskar and Hailey are so very different. Different in every way that counts, doesn’t matter though, not to them because they love each other fiercely and when the walls come-a-tumbling down, their simply eyewitnesses to the chemistry their bodies have been fuelling ever since they last were together. Our major players aren’t the only ones feeling the lust chemical; I just wonder how that one will work out.

‘…I inhaled. Sandalwood. I sighed and immediately relaxed. I love that smell. The moment I was wrapped in his arms, I felt like I was exactly where I belonged.’ 

I have always respected how these authors create families. It rarely comes from people who share blood. As we move further into the twenty-first-century, family has taken on such a broader term and authors the world over are reflecting real society into their books. This makes me happy and content to read such books. Family and lives are no longer just fluid, no two people are ever the same (even identical twins are different).

One more comment about this book though, what the heck was that cliffhanger ladies? Do you know what you’re doing to me? Thank goodness, the next one is out very soon. Jeez. I have come to the most obvious conclusions: either of these two cannot pen a book and not have me clinging onto the edge of my seat and suffering from awful palpitations. Wick authors, evil, devilish. Please, do not ever change! Kudos on another great one.

How the hell did I, the perpetual bachelor, end up accidentally married in Vegas—to my client?

As soon as I find out who’s trying to kill her, we’ll get a quickie divorce…or will we? I was never supposed to be married. I was never supposed to fall in love. I was never supposed to put her in danger.

But now that she’s back in my life I wonder if some things shouldn’t stay in Vegas.

To keep her I’ll have to fight for her. Good thing I’m brazen enough to do just that.

So before I delve into this review, I would just like to point out that this here book did not finish on a cliffy, but more of a continuation. So let’s just agree that this is part one of an ongoing story.

Jase Cross was commanding, austere and somewhat scary. However, look beyond that and you will catch glimpses of something else. What you may ask? Jase and his brothers are not good guys. They are notorious bad boys whose reputation proceeds them and follows them wherever they go. The selling of illegal drugs, killing people or have someone else do that for them. And on top of all that, they have the local law enforcement in their pocket.

Bethany was the youngest of two. She was sad, lonely and in mourning for her sister who was gone forever. Cruelly murdered and no one seems to know why or have any answers. So what do you do when no one has answers? You go looking for them yourself. And this is where this story begins and how the two main protagonists come together.

A single glance was really all it took. As soon as Jase clapped eyes on Bethany, he desired her. Fiercely and passionately. And he always got what he wanted. He had something she wanted and he wanted something only she could give him. She needed answers and he had different ideas; have his wicked way with her. And what he did to her was definitely decadent and extremely wicked. I will let your imagination run with that one *Wink*

Who knew that her treacherous body would betray her. He knew! So while he was giving her answers, at the same time he was looking for answers himself because he knew that neither he nor his brothers had anything to do with her sister’s murder. Without feeling left out, I also had questions of my own. Who killed her sister and why? And where was this relationship going to go?

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were easy going and connected well. It was well-written and flowed easily. As for the *Play* this couple enjoyed, I’ve learnt something new today. Haha! I sincerely hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next instalment of Bethany’s and Jase’s story.

 

Meet Willow

I actually started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read smut and I read EVERYTHING. I would read a book a day — sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. And I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have so many fans. And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I’ll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my two littles (Jax who’s two and a half and Evie who just turned one!) during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a fan and it makes me want to push through and keep writing. And I do. I promise I won’t stop!

If you enjoy sexy as f*ck and dangerous men getting into trouble for the women they fall for, then you’ll love my books. I like my action hot and my bad boys hotter. And I don’t hold back on either one in my writing.
