Two years. That’s the amount of time I’ve wasted lusting after Wyatt
Douglas.

He had me the moment he roared up on his bike and flashed his charismatic
smile my way. I wanted to jump on, wrap my arms around him, and ride off
into the sunset.

Then my brother introduced him as his friend and crushed my short lived
happily ever after.

To make matters worse, we work together at World Class Wrestling and our
storylines are intertwined. I have a strict rule I’ve always adhered to;
never mix business with pleasure.

But with each moment we spend together, avoiding that carefully drawn line is becoming more difficult.

There’s an ongoing rumble between my heart and my head. Which one will win out in the end?

Ronnie Gunn is one gutsy and determined woman who works at World Class Wrestling. She’d met Wyatt Douglas two years ago and has secretly had a huge crush on him. The moment he got off his motorbike and showed his charismatic smile and good looks, she was hooked. Jess, her brother and Wyatt’s best friend, throws cold water on her short-lived notion of any kind of romance. Things are made awkward when they have to work together with the wrestling storylines entwining. First rule, don’t mix business with pleasure; however, Ronnie finds this increasingly difficult when they spend a lot of time together.

I liked Ronnie’s fearlessness but underneath it all, I could understand why she was harbouring such strong feelings. Wyatt is equally attracted to Ronnie and has wanted her just as much, although he knows she’s stubborn and would build up any walls allowing him to be with her. Furthermore, Wyatt’s full of confidence and determined to fight for her. The only thing these two have to worry about is Ronnie’s brother, Jesse. He would be none to happy about his little sister and best friend getting together. Gosh, the chemistry and sexual tension was like a pressure cooker waiting to explode between the two!

Rumble is the second book in the Wrestling duet and despite being a stand-alone, I would highly recommend reading Tussle first. Jesse Gunn’s brother, Ronnie and his lady love, Lilah make cameo appearances. These two fabulous characters were in Tussle, so it was great catching up a little and finding out how life was treating them. I love the World Class Wrestling theme. It brings something different to the vast amount of sports romances out there plus it was back down memory lane, watching wrestling on a Saturday afternoon with my dad when I was a child. Mr. Chance yet again shows his diversity and you could tell from his words that sport is his passion.

I was enthralled from the first page right up until the very last one. Rumble had everything to keep me entertained; funny, romantic, steamy and slow burn. The characters are well-developed and definitely have that likeability factor. I wanted to know where the author would take me and a couple of surprises along the way were a welcome addition to the story. Such an epic thrilling read, I even played the group mentioned in Rumble just to get into the participants moment. We all know this is a sport where they like to make a grand entrance. A very enjoyable story and worthy of the five stars given.

TheMister-Banner.jpg

Beautiful and mysterious she possessed little more. . . Than a dangerous and troublesome past.

THE MISTER, the highly anticipated new love story from #1 New York Times bestseller E L James is available now!

the mister hi res 1.22.19.jpg

London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? And can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

I can’t recommend reading and listening to The Mister at the same time enough. In fact, there was a moment when I had to recharge my earphones and ooh boy, did I miss the sensuously aristocratic voice of narrator Dominic Thorburn. And Jessica O’Hara Baker did a very fine job indeed narrating the female protagonist’s feelings, her cadence and that of others. James has been very adventurous mixing Maxim Trevelyan’s thoughts in first-person and Alessia Demachi’s story in third and I won’t even start on the excellent character development!

The author’s combined two complete opposites from totally different walks of life and not just made it work, she nailed it! Another detail which grabbed my attention was the truncated sentences which for me, made a lot of sense since the young lady who would rock Maxim Trevelyan’s world has a couple of problems understanding our idioms and adages. James’ carefully-worded prose knitted together with an original plot put me at ease, seeing as I had no idea what to expect. I’m a glutton for the Fifty Shades series…but this book, well, apart from having a fairy tale ring to it, I can honestly say is it was beyond my expectations.

Fast-moving if not distressing, the prologue opened up my appetite for more. Then when they meet, I had to smile because the scenario was in effect, unusual. Maxim has it all. Or does he? A constant pleasure-seeker, he’d never had trouble finding female company and despite being sorely tempted to have his way with Alessia, he does have a moral compass. Nonetheless, he can’t take his eyes off this lass with a beguiling talent, and she rather likes what she sees, too.

But there are so many hurdles to overcome in this slow burn romance. Present-day subjects such as social class, wealth versus poverty and the protagonists’ cultural differences were told fittingly. But the illegal goings on…deary me, it’s harsh stuff to stomach. Also, reading about Alessia’s plight broke my heart in two. Talk about flipping the pages isn’t in it! 80% in and all I yearned for was getting to the end just to find out if they’d have their HEA.

On a lighter note, the banter’s fabulous. Of course, being the upper-crust Brit that he is, doesn’t stop Maxim from holding back with a few choice phrases, meaning he spends a good part of his time explaining the definitions to Alessia. It all felt very natural to me. Once I got to know him; his true feelings, I wouldn’t have expected less of him.              

A pleasant surprise was the pieces of music chosen to accompany Maxim and Alessia’s journey of love and trust, and an even more gratifying experience was listening to preludes and piano concertos being played in the background while listening. Maxim’s eclectic taste in music comes forth so strongly that it made me want to investigate further. I didn’t have to though. One of the gals at KFF excitedly sent me the Spotify playlist link after copying the URL by hand, knowing I’d love it. Bless her.

Anyone who knows me well is aware that I’m a sucker for contemporary romance and James has delivered. The Mister is a passionate and angsty love story and albeit long, I didn’t want it to finish. Touches of the Brit wit were oh-so-very welcomed and watching her characters’ relationship grow was an utter joy. Her descriptive writing concerning London and its surroundings and the landscape in Cornwall, made me feel like I was there. And now for the finale! Hmm…Erika, could there be more where this came from? I sincerely hope so. Bravo and thank you for giving me hours of enjoyment.

BLOG TOUR ~ THE RULES OF BURKEN by Traci Finlay

“This book captured me from the start! The Rules of Burken reveals the chilling secrets behind a childhood game, and I’ve never been more disturbed by what the human mind can do.”

–Colleen Hoover, New York Times bestselling author

The Rules of Burken, an all-new thriller packed with secrets, lies and a dangerous game from Traci Finlay is available now!

The Rules of Burken_ebook.jpg

Twenty-four-year-old Charlotte Stahl would do anything for her older brother, Ian. After all, he’d done everything for her growing up.

He played Burken with her—a hide-and-seek game they made up as kids.

He comforted her when their mom deserted them.

He raised her when their dad went to prison for murder.

To Charlotte, Ian is the only reason she’s still alive—he’s her rock. So when Ian asks her to play Burken in the isolated woods of Cadillac, Michigan, Charlotte feels she could use the nostalgia and agrees. Besides, they haven’t played this game since childhood. Burken—it’s the one thing that never changes …

…until Ian threatens to kill her in the middle of the game.

More than the rules have changed as Brother turns to Predator, Sister turns to Prey, and she’s navigating the forests of Northern Michigan on foot with nothing but the clothes—and a target—on her back.

If Charlotte wants to stay alive, she knows she has to untangle the web of her haunting past to find out where things went wrong, and at what point she lost sight of reality. With no other choice but to reopen old wounds—and with Ian hot on her trail—Charlotte learns that sometimes evil has to manifest in order for good to succeed. Which makes her wonder…

Is Ian really a monster? Or her savior?

This debut novel had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning of the story and by the time I finished reading it I felt like I just got off from a rollercoaster ride. This is an impressive first attempt by the author and I am hooked.

Charlotte and Ian are siblings and Ian has always looked after her. At the age of twenty-four, Charlotte is still very close to her older brother who has been her rock ever since their mother walked out on the family when she was only eleven-years-old. A few years later, their father was convicted of a horrific crime and Ian gave up his college scholarship to take care of his sister. He’s an over-protective but creepy older brother to Charlotte, and she is totally clueless of his scheming.

Nikka, Charlotte’s new friend, has also an older brother Jack. These siblings grew up in the foster care system, passed from one family to another and they learned how to trust only each other. Their relationship can’t be any far more opposite than Charlotte and Ian’s seemingly ordinary but messed up family tree.

“The truth will set you free, but sometimes… you have to set yourself free from the truth.” 

This psychological thriller is written in first person narrative and one that will screw with your head. Two pairs of siblings: one brother is a master manipulator and the other is caring but doesn’t know how to express it. Ian’s character is especially a very interesting study of human behaviour; the psychology of the twisted mind, he is amazingly sharp, fascinating and a master manipulator.

Fast-paced with a tightly woven plotline, I just couldn’t put this book down. I felt sorry for Charlotte for being the only normal one in the family, but it gets tiresome when she can’t see the forest for the trees. Her budding relationship with Jack gives her the push to grow a backbone and maybe just maybe clear the scales from her eyes.

From a young age, Ian and Charlotte had always played the Burken, a darker version of hide n’ seek, and it’s only when you read further along that you find out why Ian always pushed for it. This author successfully creates complicated characters, some are sympathetic, some are screwed-up and some are just pure evil. Ian and Charlotte’s childhood game becomes a deadly sport that will give your heart a complete workout. An adrenaline-pumping adventure with no need to go to the gym. Highly recommended!

“Nope, the game’s not over,” he says and suddenly releases my hands before standing.
“What?” I say to his knees.
“It’s not over,” he repeats harshly, like I’m not the co-creator of this game.
I sit up on my elbows and pull a twig from the pesky strand of hair that’s cupping my face again. “What do you mean? Of course it’s over, that was the third round. Have you forgotten how to—”
He reaches down and grasps my upper arm, heaving me up. “Listen very carefully,” he whispers, as if the trees might be listening. “I’m giving you one more chance. I’m even going to give you a head start. But I’m warning you.” His grip on my arm tightens, and he pulls me closer until his breath hits my ear. “Don’t let me catch you. Because if I catch you, I will kill you.”
Okay, that was never in the script.
“And, for the record, if I get back to the house and you’re there, I will murder you. Do you understand?”
I finally look at him, scanning his eyes for a twinkle, any sign that this is just a huge prank and at any moment he’ll burst out laughing, pointing and saying stupid things like, “You should’ve seen your face!” or, “You thought I was serious?” But his eyes dart back and forth between mine with threats I haven’t seen since we were at the barn with Trevor during The Night That Never Happened.
I mean, I’ve never seen his eyes like that.
He digs his nails into my arm. “Do you?”
“You’re going to kill me… Is this a joke?”
“It’s not a joke,” he whispers. “Do you understand?”
I absolutely have to break eye contact. “I—I’m really confused.”
His hand goes to my throat, and his fingers slide in the blood he’d dripped on it. But it doesn’t hinder him from pressing against my jugular, my windpipe, and now I’m officially and rightfully scared, and eye contact, it is.
“I said, do you understand?” he says a lot more calmly than his hand at my throat says.
I nod.
“Good. Now listen carefully. I’m going to let you go. And you have ten seconds before I hunt you down. This is round four, got it? This is a bonus round, wherein the loser dies. And don’t—”his voice lowers to a diabolic decibel. “Don’t let me find you at the house.” At that, he releases me.
I should’ve just eaten my orange. Shouldn’t have done this.
“Ten.”
I should feel indifferent. Every milestone in my life has been haunted by some form of loss and betrayal—if it wasn’t our mom leaving, then it was the death of my best friend and the incarceration of our father.
“Nine.”
But this is Ian, the only person I have left. This is shock in its purest form, and I’m no longer tempted to laugh at him. I stare instead. I blink twice. Take a step backward. Another.
“Eight.”
Then I’m gone. I don’t know where I’m going, but as those ten seconds dwindle down, a sinking awareness that Ian is dead serious swarms like a nest of bees in my gut.
Ian is chasing me now, I know it.
I knew I shouldn’t have played

When a dangerous conspiracy threatens to tear them apart, he’ll have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House. He’s worked his whole life to become the leader of the free world—attending the right schools, marrying the perfect bride—all to aid his campaign. He didn’t realize someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous position—one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The one thing he can’t risk is Elizabeth Matthews.

From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection. Serving as his campaign manager and then his press secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain unrequited. Still, she’d thought they were friends, so when he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And when she realizes he’s done it to protect her, nothing will stop Liz from standing by his side—not even the men who would use her as a weapon against him.

As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor and passion in each other’s arms. When the ultimate villain shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Liz’s hands shook as she turned the lock, shutting herself alone in the library with Zack. This was likely the single stupidest thing she’d ever done, but after years of pining for and being in love with him, she couldn’t walk away without knowing how a night with him would feel.She should be in her bed right now, trying to find sleep. But she’d seen the light on and known he’d be here. Like a freaking moth to a flame, she’d found herself leaving the safety of her bedroom and walking right into the predator’s den.

Trembling, she turned now and looked at the only man she’d ever truly loved. He needed her tonight. She saw it in his stare, in the way he clenched his fists at his sides. How much character and willpower had it taken him to allow her this choice? She admired him even more for finding the strength, especially since she’d long suspected that under his façade of intellectualism and perfect manners, he hid a beast.

Tonight, she would find out if she’d been right.

Liz had no illusions. He was capable of breaking her heart into a million pieces, and she’d try not to let him. But even if she only got one night with this man, she would take it because she would rather live with foolish regret than stubborn ignorance.

“Elizabeth.”

His voice hummed in the quiet room, caressing between her ears, vibrating through her body. She flushed with arousal.

This was it. This was happening.

She’d wanted him the moment they’d met, but he’d been forbidden. Now, he stood in front of her with his broad shoulders and his dark hair. Not a president, but a man. Herman—at least for the night.

Liz tried to steady her breathing as she crossed the room to him. Finally, she had permission to touch him the way she’d always wanted. Of course she’d heard him say tonight would be his way all the way, that it wouldn’t be tender, but she wanted one sweet moment she could cling to later before her man turned beast.

She stopped in front of him and reached up, brushing her fingers against the sliver threaded at his temples—the only sign that he was aging. Naturally, it made him even more attractive.

He caught her hand, clasping it in his big one. “Be sure.”

That was Zack, always putting others first, even when his whole world was falling apart. Even when he needed so desperately for himself.

Tonight, she was here for him in every way. Liz hoped with all her heart he understood that.

She would cling to him through the bittersweet hours until dawn, memorizing every touch. Tomorrow they would go back to their corners, and the turmoil would start again. It would be worse because she would know exactly how good it felt to be in his arms. But their passion could only be temporary because he was right, any chance they’d had at a future had died the day Joy had. After her murder and three long years, how could they ever hope for more?

“I’m sure,” she murmured. “I want everything you have to give me tonight.”

My first book by this author, this romantic thriller standalone is just up my alley, and a definite page-turner from the first chapter to the last.

Alta Johnson aka Birdie is a forest park ranger in Colorado, an introvert who ran away from a traumatic past. She is not much into people and would prefer the company of her best friend, Benny, a German Shepherd who is always by her side. When a woman goes missing in the park, she meets Cas and Chandler who take over the case. Her quiet existence soon turns into a whirlwind of surprises; emotions that are dormant for ten years start to resurface. Her life might be in danger or is it her heart that she needs to protect this time?

Cas Matthews is an ex-Marine and was recruited by his friend Chandler to work a special case with the FBI. His self-imposed solitude has served him well ever since his last deployment. Memories still haunt him every night and he doesn’t trust anyone but when he meets Birdie, unfamiliar feelings bubble up and start to crack the thick armour guarding his heart.

I love the fast-paced and seamless plot of this romantic thriller. Cas who is dark, brooding and volatile is the perfect match for the broken but tenacious Birdie.

“Like a siren’s call, her deeply buried darkness sang to my own. But was it a call to protect her from experiencing pain and fear again, or a luring of her dark passion that’s been waiting for the right spark to ignite the building want inside?” 

Written in dual points of view, the story of Cas and Birdie is a perfect combination of suspense, mystery and steamy romance. The author’s narrative style will keep you guessing who the bad guy is right until the last chapter and I thought I had it all figured out but I was proved wrong. The main characters are so engaging and I love that Benny, Alta’s protector plays quite a significant part in her life. This was a quick read for me and not because it is lightweight, but because I couldn’t put it down. I would also love to hear Chandler’s story; in fact, John deserves his own book too. Dang, the men in this tale are all so delish. Can I have all three, please? I highly recommend this book!

“Stay away from me, Lady.”

Her eyes met mine, daring her to push back. “What? I didn’t mean—”

“I’m not the man you think I am. I’m an asshole with more control issues than they can diagnose. I’m not a nice guy.”

“But I’m safe,” she whispered in a voice so fragile, it chipped at my resolve to stay away for her sake.

Fuck, that weak voice cracked every restraint I had. All she wanted to be was safe, and that was the one thing I could offer. “No one—I repeat, no one will touch you while I’m here. That is a fact you shouldn’t question.”

Her tight shoulders dropped, her lips parted in a relieved sigh. There was trust there, trust I hadn’t earned yet, but still she gave it—to me, a nobody.

Fuck it.

Narrowing my eyes, I crouched directly in front of her, inching closer until her back pressed against the brick hearth. Inches from her nose, I inhaled each of her shaky breaths, savoring the heated fear that pulsed off her as her eyes darkened with lust. She needed to be scared of me, to run in the opposite direction.

Still I dared another inch closer, hoping she’d push me off, praying she wouldn’t.

I slid a hand around the hot skin of her delicate neck.

“I don’t know how to be gentle, Lady,” I growled.

Her breath hitched at the minuscule squeeze of my fingers around her throat.

“What if I don’t want gentle?” she breathed.

“What do you want?”

Light brown brows pulled together in thought, but her hazel eyes stayed locked with mine. “You.”

Forbidden fruit never tasted this sweet…

The world knows Samantha Brooks as the violin prodigy. She guards her secret truth—the desire she harbors for her guardian.

Liam North got custody of her six years ago. She’s all grown up now, but he still treats her like a child. No matter how much he wants her.

No matter how bad he aches for one taste.

Her sweet overtures break down the ex-soldier’s defenses, but there’s more at stake than her body. Every touch, every kiss, every night. The closer she gets, the more exposed his darkest secret.

She’s one step away from finding out what happened the night she lost her family. One step away from leaving him forever.

OVERTURE is the first novel in a brand new series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren.

Where on earth do I begin! I pre-ordered Overture since the synopsis not only sparked my interest, but the very thought of reading a forbidden romance revolving around a nobel instrument such as is the violin…well, I was sold. And I have to say as a frustrated musician, Warren’s research into and knowledge of the finer points of music is outstanding. So, when it hit my Kindle in the early hours of the morning; I picked it up and that was that! Everyone started to move except me! Those curious looks thrown my way went ignored. I’d begun the book and had no wish whatsoever to put it down, but was it worth supporting long faces and grumbles. No doubt about it!

The plot works up to a crescendo of incredible intensity. And if it were ever possible, between the staves and the sacrifice for pitches of perfection, secrets one could never have imagined lie. Answers to questions are masterfully convoluted evoking a sense of unrest and not just for the reader. Samantha’s wants to know more. Setting out on a quest to conquer the man she’s loved for what seemed like forever, I must say her resourcefulness to draw attention to herself worked wonders.

Young, talented and determined, Samantha has yet to take the world by storm. She’s been schooled to study, has dexterity and stamina in abundance despite lacking in a few life skills. I have no wish to divulge the reasons why she’d been overly protected by her guardian; however, I couldn’t help but fall hard for this lass whose innocent demeanour I found such a becoming trait. In contrast, I think there’s much more to be said about her sad childhood.

‘Growing up isn’t about learning something new. It’s about unlearning the fairy tales you believed as a child.’ 

For me, Liam is the perfect gentleman. Ex-military, gorgeous, commanding and quite a bit older than Samantha, he’d cease to be her ward when she reaches legal age. Liam’s is torn between love, guilt and duty. His oh-so troubled soul stirred my emotions and I thought if anyone deserved happiness, it was him. Unfortunately, what I wanted and what the author had in mind were completely different things altogether. You won’t hear me complaining though.

“I’m not fighting demons, sweetheart. I am one.” 

Regardless of the age difference or the complex situation they were in, I never felt uncomfortable with Liam and Samantha’s inner thoughts which believe you me, they are titillating and heart-wrenching all in one.

“Then how do you think of me?”
‘My greatest pride and my deepest regret.’
 

Now, whether you like cliffhangers or not in my honest opinion, Liam and Samantha’s story just has to go on because firstly, I didn’t want the book to finish and secondly, goodness me…the intrigue. Being left up in the air often gets the better of me but for once, my only desire was to get my hands on the follow-up, Concerto. Coming in the middle of May, it couldn’t come sooner. Newbie to Warren’s writing, while chatting to book buddies about this book, many of her novels have been recommended to me, so it’s highly likely I’ll be pushing them to the top of my TBR list. Beautifully written, Overture is a without a doubt, a must-one-click. Bravo!

Excerpt

“I’m going to tour the country. The world. I’m leaving, Liam.”

He looks away. “Christ.”

Unease moves through me. “Did you really think I wouldn’t come back?”

“I don’t know why you would want to.”

“Because I care about you.” Liam is six feet of pure muscle and hard will. There’s no way someone like me could go up against him and win. Except that when I take a step closer, he tenses. Another step and he goes still as stone. It gives me a sense of power, enough that I take the final step. “I care about you even though you’re controlling.”

There’s only an inch between the ruffle of my blouse and the flat of his abs.

“You think I’m going to apologize for keeping you safe?” he mutters. “You think I give a damn that you’re mad at me as long as you’re in one piece? That’s the only thing that matters.”

“Because you think of me like a daughter?”

He shakes his head slowly, not breaking eye contact. “No.”

“No?” I whisper.

RELEASE BOOST ~ THE FORCE OF NATURE by S.L. Scott

S.L. Scott’s brand new romantic suspense stand-alone, FORCE OF NATURE is now available!

GOODREADS

AMAZON UNIVERSAL | AUDIO | PAPERBACK 

 

Winter Nobleman is complicated. To say the least.

It was supposed to be simple. Go to Paris, find a client’s daughter, and close a multi-million-dollar deal. Easy. Then I meet her. Stormy blue eyes, quick wit, and the secrets she keeps on the tip of her tongue make me forget my mission for a moment, or six, and why I’m in Paris in the first place—to bring her home.

Distracted by her beauty, I fail to notice the others lurking with missions of their own.

Bennett Everest is the twist I never saw coming. Talk about perfect timing.

He steals my breath the first time I see him and breathes hope back into my heart. He’s a giant in my eyes, a king among men with patience and love to share in spades. Six foot three. Whiskey-colored eyes. Solid gold on the inside.

Despite the dirty deeds of my past, he sees the person I am meant to be and not the person I have become. If the lies don’t kill us, will the truth set us free?

When you hear the name Everest, you immediately think of that big ol’ mountain, right? Not me! When I hear that name, I think of those gorgeous men that have a starring role in author S.L. Scott’s novels. This one features the youngest Everest sibling, Bennett.

Bennett Everest. Rich beyond his wildest dreams, movie star good looks that have women noticing him wherever he goes. Add charming and witty and what you got is a lethal combination of a man. Ladies, beware!

Winter Nobleman is stunningly attractive, mysterious and in a timid way, lonely. Even with a father and brother, she had never felt so alone as she did right now. Finding herself in Paris, the city for lovers, there was nothing romantic as to why she was there.

When Bennett and Winter first met, he was there for one purpose only. To bring Winter back to New York City and back to her family. A million dollar deal was at stake which Bennett did not want to lose, but all that changed as soon as he saw her sitting outside a little cafe in Paris… And to say that neither one of them had felt that instant attraction would be a lie.

Winter had secrets. Secrets she was unwilling to share with Bennett. There was an air of mystery about her. She was but a pawn in a game being played by evilness. Would she be able to put her trust in Bennett and let him help her or would she send him back home to New York alone? Although he was going nowhere without her, he had to gain her trust so that she would return with him. There was no other option for him.

I’ve said little in this review, yet there is so much more I would love to tell you but without giving too much away, I’ve given you a little tease instead. I highly recommend this book by this great author. Every time her stories reel me in and capture my imagination. They bring intrigue, suspense and passion written with such flair. The story flowed throughout and kept me on tenterhooks the entire time. I wanted Winter to get her happy ending. I was so rooting for her.

EXCERPT

The pale color of the lace highlights a sheen as if the sun-kissed her skin, and I can’t stop myself. “Fuck, you’re beautiful.” The smile I receive in return is magnificent. Her surprise at my compliment shocks me, though.
A whispered, “You’re so hot,” leaves her lips. Her hands on my sides urge me back on top, so I move, kissing her again and appreciating the taste of her mouth, her skin, and the way she moves under me. Her body begs for more, and I start to memorize what makes her moan.
A kiss to the lips.
The spot behind her ear.
My hands on her waist.
Fingertips dipping under the lace and teasing.
Her breasts are firm and a good handful. I’d venture to guess a cup size, but it doesn’t matter.
It.
Doesn’t.
Matter.
The thought races through my veins, and I start to digest it. The size of a woman’s tits has always been something I catalogued for entertainment, out of curiosity, and to engage my brain and not just my body. It’s the same as every woman staring below the abs I work so hard to maintain to check out what the good Lord gave me.
But with Winter, it’s different.
Like our time together, this just feels good. She feels good. With her, it’s not a race to the finish. She’s savoring my kisses to her neck and taking the time to kiss mine. She doesn’t want a quick fuck before she ducks to catch a cab home. No, this is different.
New.
Better.
I don’t want this feeling to end although I don’t think I can wait much longer before I explode. I ache to be inside her, so I whisper against the round of her breasts, “Do you want to—”
“Yes. God, yes. Please.”
Lifting my head up to see her face, I smile. “I like you begging for me.”
“I’d like you between my legs.”
“I thought that’s what we were talking about?”
“Your mouth first.”
“First, huh?” She drives me fucking wild. As if I couldn’t get harder, she opens that sexy mouth of hers and makes a request. Confidence is a turn-on. “I can arrange that.” I slip under the covers and tug her legs until she’s flat on her back.
Through laughter, she says, “You’re so bad, Bennett.”
“But I’ll make you feel so good.”
