Runaway (Sexy Lawyer): A One to Chase Prequel (One To Hold)
Runaway (Sexy Lawyer): A One to Chase Prequel (One To Hold)
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars! Runaway (prequel to book 7). A fast & steamy one-night stand at a wedding!, 3 Sept. 2015
“I’d like to have you for breakfast,” he says, turning to me with a cocky smile.”

Books in The One To Hold series are stand-alones, but most enjoyed if read in order:
Part 6.5: Runaway
Book 7: One To Chase

Runaway, an Amazon freebie, is the prequel novella to the 7th book in the One To Hold series. Story takes place at a wedding attended by 35-year old tatted attorney Marcus Merritt and Amalie Knight, Amy, a 25-year old who abruptly left her job and boyfriend in Paris to return home to Chicago to work in PR/marketing.

Meeting up at the bar, they realize they have something in common; both are bored and why not have a one-night stand with some raw sex against walls and furniture. Hot and heavy, but before they know it their time is up…. To be continued in book 7.

It’s hard to rate novellas but I enjoyed this fast-paced and sexy interlude so I am rating it 4 stars! I am looking forward to their full story in book 7, One To Chase.
“It’s crazy and reckless and wild.”

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 ½! The Lessons (stand-alone), book 1 (2). 30-year old virgin hires sex surrogate, but didn’t expect a tatted PhD student, bi, 3 Sept. 2015
“He did not need him to be an Adonis. A pre-screened disease-free surrogate with a p*n*s would do the job well enough…”

Books in The Forbidden series are stand-alones, but most enjoyed if read in order:
Book 1: The Lessons
Book 2: Untitled

The Lessons (book 1) opens up to 30 year old marketing executive and virgin, Natalie Reese, LeeLee having reached a milestone. After years of putting herself last she has moved across the country to start fresh with a new career. Also on her long list of “things to do before I turn thirty” is “cashing in her v-card”. She has scheduled time with a therapist and a sex surrogate to take care of that.

Nothing could have prepared her for PhD student and sex surrogate Ryan Andrews, tatted, soccer player and biker who has overcome much and is looking to graduate at the end of the semester. Having had a brief encounter with Natalie at the library beforehand he knows she is off-limits and he even tried getting out of becoming her surrogate.

The story goes onto follow Natalie and Ryan as he sets out to, in a clinical way, rid her of her hymen, but fails miserably. Their attraction is palpable and in the forbidden, clandestine relationship that forms, painful pasts, secrets, deceit and villains are revealed while allowing for many funny moments courtesy Natalie.
“Yes, I called him mine. He’s put his mouth on my v*gina, and I was feeling a little territorial about the whole thing.”

NATALIE REESE, LeeLee: 30 years/College grad/Marketing exec/Brown hair/Brown eyes/Orphan/Virgin/Glasses.
Eight words to describe Natalie Reese, LeeLee: Quirky, funny, organized, considerate, sweet, nurturing, insecure and OCD.

RYAN ANDREWS: 30 years/PhD student/Sex surrogate/Brown hair/Blue eyes/Orphan/Tattoos/Soccer/Handicap.
Wait until you know a little more about Ryan Andrews. I predict he’ll wrap himself around your heart. Eight words to describe Ryan: Loyal, caring, smart, focused, survivor, responsible, charming and lonely.

The Lessons is a mixture or forbidden romance, sexual tension and hilarious situations. It ends on a high, but chances are we can catch glimpses of Ryan and Natalie in book 2 Ryan’s best friend and little sister.

Entertaining plot! Sidesplitting dialogue! Endearing hero! Quirky heroine!
“No twist of fate was going to get between Ryan Andrews’s c*** and my v*gina.”

Excellent story-telling! Engaging plot! Mysterious and to-die-for hero! Sweet romance meets the dark side.

Loving the White Liar
Loving the White Liar
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars! Loving the White Liar (stand-alone). A candid look at loving a man with ADHD!, 3 Sept. 2015
“You’re my best friend,” he said tearfully, “my lover, my strength, my reason for being, which I never thought was possible. I never thought there was anyone for me.” He was openly crying as I looked down at him.”

Loving the White Liar is Hilary A Monroe, Hil’s story how she came to be and had to cope with being in a relationship with man with ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder).

While doing laps in the pool at her apartment complex travel agent Hilary meets a charming neighbor woodworker Jayden Monroe, Jay. They both feel an attraction; flirting leads to dating which quickly leads to a deep friendship and much more. But along the way their relationship plateaus Hil not understanding why. There are signs… subtle at first; white lies Jayden not have had any successful relationships…

It turns our Jayden has a secret; He has ADHD. Naļve, ignorant and unprepared Hil forges ahead with their relationship. The story goes on to follow them in sky-high ups and rock-bottom lows as she discovers what dealing with ADHD truly entails. Needless to say this causes both stress and strain on their relationship.

It’s a candid look into the complexity of ADHD. That said contrary to what I expected this is Hil’s journey. Jayden had already been proactive with his condition, structuring his life is such a way that he was functioning. I have so much respect for him.

JAYDEN A. MONROE, Jay: 27 years/Woodworker/Dark brown hair/Purple eyes/Tattoos/ADHD.
Jayden Monroe, Jay has overcome so much and learned to function in a very intolerant, fast paced society despite his ADHD. There was nothing that bothered me about what he said or did. I felt there were mitigating circumstances for everything. Nine words to describe Jayden: forthcoming, insecure, loving, temperamental, focused, determined, proactive, hard-working and lovable.

HILLARY A. MONROE, Hil: 27 years/Travel agent/Marketing/Auburn hair/Blue eyes/5’5”.
There were times Hilary A Monroe, Hil angered me. Her immaturity, ignorance, insensitivity and poor timing caused more stress on their relationship and Jayden’s health. For me this was HER journey of growth. In the end I forgave her. Eight words to describe Hil: Loving, sweet, immature, ignorant, naļve, thoughtless, determined and loyal.

Loving the White Liar is an intense mixture of romance and angst. Though my heart broke a couple of times it is a heart-warming life story of hope and love. As mentioned Hil frustrated me at times with her ignorance and inability to see the big picture, but she came around and I forgave her. Plus that ending more than made up for any angst. It was perfection through and through.

Candid and insightful story-telling! Thought-provoking plot! Oh so sweet hero! A beautiful message of love and hope!
“Playful Jayden was adorable. Nervous Jayden was endearing. Affectionate Jayden was beautiful. But this Jayden... this Jayden was molten.”

Price: £2.89

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars! Rule, book 3 (3). The conclusion to alleged mobster Antonio Spinelli & Theresa Drazen’s songs of Corruption!, 3 Sept. 2015
“There are too many ways to die.”

Songs of Corruption is the whirlwind saga of alleged mobster Antonio Spinelli and Theresa Drazen. It’s a sequel series to Songs of Submission and Songs of Perdition and thus most enjoyed if read after and in order:
Book 1: Spin
Book 2: Ruin
Book 3: Rule

In Songs of Corruption book 1 and 2, heiress, socialite, part-time script supervisor and former head of accounting Theresa Drazen, Tink aka Contessa met a man who rocked her world and gave her an excuse to break out of her good-girl-mold. Attorney, business owner and “alleged” mobster, money launderer and murderer Antonio Spinelli, Spin aka Capo wasn’t looking to complicate his life, but Theresa intrigued him.

With little in common and much to lose they couldn’t seem to stay away. Story went on to follow Antonio and Theresa as they dealt with their attraction and got entwined with the darker side of Hollywood’s organized crime, corruption and politics until it all imploded…

Rule (Book 3) opens up to the aftermath of book 2’s explosive ending. Antonio and Theresa have been through so much yet nothing could have prepared them for the battles ahead. It’s a raise against time with traitors, villains and enemies plotting to destroy them with family and friends looking on powerless to help.

Follow them, in their against-all-odd’s love, as they set out to rule their future tainted by their pasts in a high-stakes game of cut-throat politics colliding with ruthless organized crime for Songs of Corruption.

ANTONIO SPINELLI, SPIN aka CAPO: 35 years/Italian/$$$$/Attorney/Biz owner/Alleged mobser, money launderer & murder/Black hair/Black eyes/6’.
Antonio Spinelli, Spin aka Capo stole my heart and it was my pleasure to the see him shaped by his youth and past adapting to his circumstance to become the man he needs to be. Eight words to describe Antonio: Captivating, loyal, commanding, conflicted, enigmatic, elusive, possessive and ruthless.
“He paused there, eyes half lidded with pleasure, and pulled out slowly. “All of me.”

THERESA DRAZEN, TINK aka CONTESSA: 34 years/American/$$$$/Heiress & socialite/Former head of client accounting/Part-time movie script supervisor/Red hair/Blue eyes/Petite & curvy/Jonathan’s sister.
Theresa Drazen, Tink aka Contessa is coming full circle with her past present and future. Eight words to describe Theresa: Poised, compassionate, smart, ambitious, loyal, gutsy, restless and graceful.
“I trusted him to protect me, but not to protect himself for my sake?”

Rule blew me away with its intensity and complexity. It’s full circle on so many levels I am utterly speechless. It offers the very best of sex, danger, intrigue, angst and suspense. Be prepared not to get everything wrapped in a pretty bow, yet the ending was all them, full circle, songs of perfection.

Effortless storytelling! Breathtaking plot! Intense sex scenes! Larger-than-life Antonio Spinelli! Brilliant ending! Epic saga!
“Yet I sat on a throne before a kingdom of possibilities.”

Sugar Baby Beautiful
Sugar Baby Beautiful
Price: £2.49

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars! Sugar Baby Beautiful (stand-alone). LIGHTS-CAMERA-ACTION! Young waitress is swept off her feet by Hollywood royalty!, 3 Sept. 2015
Sugar Baby Beautiful (stand-alone) opens up to waitress and call center operator Felicity Harper being coerced into attending a Sugar Baby party in the Hollywood Hills. Her two gold-digger friends and roommates, Mark an Cleo have reaped the benefits of such arrangements for years while Felicity <b>struggles to make ends meet. At the party she makes the best of her night by finding the mansion’s music room and playing the grand piano.

Hollywood producer, director and writer, heir to a fortune and Hollywood royalty Theodore J. Darcy, Theo hears Felicity play and is mesmerized. He has come to break up the party annoyed with his brother for opening up his home to gold diggers.

Theo is intrigued by the young musical genius despite meeting her at such a party. He pursues her relentlessly and they agree to no-questions-asked sex. Felicity is swept off her feet in a blockbuster romance and sex-scapades with the larger-than life and infamous Theo. But she does not want a long-term relationship, more on why to unfold, and so she sets a cap on their time together.

While they are both consumed by their intense attraction, sexual needs and chemistry the inevitably deadline, is creeping in. Like any good movie their picture-perfect arrangement must have an end, but not before the culmination and climax produces secrets, lies, deceit, heartbreak and more…

THEODORE J. DARCY, Theo: 31 years/$$$$/Heir/CEO/Director/Writer/Producer/Black hair/Green eyes/6’3”.
I’m still pining after Theodore J. Darcy, Theo. In fact I am creating a new alpha hero shelf for him. He is the in-control EASY-GOING alpha. Never for a second did I doubt his imposing presence and commanding ways, but his laid-back personality lets Felicity have free reigns. That said as he was falling I sensed his need to not so much possess her but to make her his.
“Sometimes it felt like he was taking out his frustration with me on my body, while other times when he was gentle with me it felt like he was asking me why.”

FELICITY HARPER: 24 years/Waitress/Call center/Honey-brown hair/Hazel eyes/5’9”.
Felicity Harper is another strong heroine courtesy J.J. McAvoy and kudos for creating another such unique heroine. As strong as swoon-worthy as Theo was, Felicity always held her own and in many ways she controlled the development of their relationship or rather her stubbornness and fears did - until Theo took charge.
“So I do what I do best and try to run. But he’s a runner so he so he always catches up to me.”

Sugar Baby Beautiful with its thought-provoking plot is every bit the rollercoaster romance the setting calls for, all the way through the shocking second/third act and Hollywood ending. Lights - Camera –Action!

Spellbinding plot! Effortless story telling! Soul-searching passion! Larger-than-life, easy-going alpha hero! Captivating, I-want-to-be-her heroine! 6-stars shelf.
