Stripped by Tara Wyatt

Review:

The first in a sexy new series from Tara Wyatt!
Detective Sawyer Matthews isn’t just having a bad day—he’s having the worst day. His hunt for the criminal who killed his team member has stalled and now… he’s got to play nice with his new, totally unwanted partner. It’s not that she isn’t qualified, or that he doesn’t like her—it’s because he knows what she looks like naked. So very, very naked.
Brooke Simmons finally landed her dream job working for H.E.A.T, an elite undercover detective squad, and she’s not giving up simply because she had a one-night-stand with her sullen—but undeniably sexy—new partner. They’ll just have to keep it professional. Easier said than done, considering their first case requires Sawyer to infiltrate a drug cartel operating out of a male strip show. Watching him do his best Magic Mike impression every night isn’t just hot—it’s torture.  
Sawyer doesn’t need any distractions, yet his attraction to Brooke is explosive and he can’t resist going for round two. Or three. Or four. But as their investigation progresses and danger mounts, they’ll have to put their jobs, hearts, and lives on the line to fight… for each other, for survival, and for justice.

My Review
4 Stars
Stripped by Tara Wyatt is book One in the Blue Heat series.  This is the story of Sawyer Matthews and Brooke Simmons. 
Sawyer is having to deal with the lost of his partner and friend who was killed.  Sawyer has been trying to locate the person that killed him…so finding out he is being assigned another partner is upsetting enough.  But it gets worse….he has a one night stand with his new partner.
Brooke is excited to be a part of the H.E.A.T, an elite undercover detective squad but the one thing that she does take her back is that her partner is a one night stand she had.
Neither Sawyer or Brooke thought that they would see each other again after that one night but now they are having to cross over to be work partners.  Can these two work past the desire for each other that still is between them?
Really  enjoyed reading their story.

A Standalone Novel

Excerpt

“Are you my guardian?” she quipped, trying to keep things light as she tipped her head slightly, studying his tight, serious expression. “I want to be.” His voice was serious as hell. His tone rubbed her in the most intimate way, her body swaying toward him. “Jake.” He reached out a hand to cup her face, his calloused fingertips rough against her skin. So intense were his features, so erotic was his touch, his protectiveness cloaking her in heat. Her nipples even puckered into tight points of need. “If I had my way, nobody would be able to take advantage of you, because they’d have to go through me in order to get to you.” Her face warmed at his words. “That’s sweet of you to say.” “I’m not feeling very sweet. In fact, I’m feeling pretty damned protective.” He was, and she liked it. A lot. His fingers skimmed her cheek as he spoke. “I was lucky enough to find you again. I want a chance to see what could be between us,” he said, taking her off guard. But God, she wanted that, too. Despite her brain telling her they needed to tread carefully, that they had a little boy to protect, her traitorous heart still wanted more. His blue gaze bored into hers, causing her heart to pound hard in her chest. “I know things are complicated right now, but how many people get second chances?” “Not many,” she agreed, knowing how lucky they were. “So wouldn’t we be foolish to waste the opportunity?” Breathe-AN.jpg

Pr*ck Charming by Madison Faye

Review:

 
 
 
Title: Pr*ck Charming
Series: Royally Screwed #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
Release Date: May 21, 2018
Blurb
 
He’s the most notorious bad boy in royalty.
The kind of man your mother warns you about.
He’s not the man you get drunk with, or get tattoos with.
He’s not the man you wake up naked in a hotel bed next to.
Oh, and he’s definitely not the one you accidentally marry.
Oops
 
 
Rough, wild, uncivilized and filthy. The tabloids like to write all sorts of shit about me, but some of it’s pretty spot on. Like the tattoo I’ve got you-know-where?
 
Yeah, that one’s true.
 
I wasn’t looking for trouble that night, but I sure found it in her – Princess Faith LaFleur. If I’m the notorious bad boy, she’s just as infamous for being good, sweet, innocent, and untouched.
 
I saved her from a tight spot, but it all gets fuzzy from there. Fuzzy, close, kissing, tattooed, a couple of “I-do’s”, and a whole bunch of naked from there. And the next thing I know, I’m waking up next to the last girl on earth I should have anything to do with.
 
Because that sweetness comes with a whole big helping of sass, and there’s more fire in her than I ever saw coming. Oh, and throw in the fact that her father’s behind a plot to take my crown and steal my kingdom, and we’ve got ourselves what you might call a situation.
 
The world will tell me that this is wrong, and that I should walk away.
 
…Not a chance.
 
First, I made her my wife. But now, I’m going to make her mine.

I have read the previous books in this series but feel you can make it a standalone book.

But on one night he goes to a bar to enjoy his old life one more time when he sees Faith. Faith is the good girl out for one night of fun being a bad girl. When Cole comes over and saves her from some bad guys she instantly knows who he is. Her father has been trying to bring down the bad boy Prince so she really should stay away from him….but he talks her into enjoying the wild side with him. But the next morning her wild girl isn’t so wild and she is finding out she did more than have fun.
Great Quick Hot Read!

BLURB
The night I met Greer Palmer was no coincidence.
The plan was perfect.
Everything was in place. All I had to do was get her attention and the rest would take its course.
What I didn’t plan was my reaction the first time she spoke.
“Are you okay?”
Three little words…
That’s all it took for her to steal my breath and shatter every thing I’d expected.
She was supposed to be a spoiled socialite, a pampered princess, an elite heiress— anything other than the striking beauty that blew my misconceptions to pieces.
One kiss and I became obsessed.
One night and I became addicted.
One month and she became my world.
Suddenly, my plan wasn’t so perfect.
To her, I am sunset kisses, whispers of seduction, and promises of forever.
It’s all a lie…
I’m Lawson Hall.
My name and reputation speaks for itself as one of the most successful architects in the industry. Conceited, arrogant, egotistical, ruthless— I’ve earned it all.
In reality, I’ve bided my time, done my job, and waited my turn.
Now is my chance.
Greer thinks we met by accident, but she’s wrong.
Once the lies are exposed, will the truth be enough?

       

EXCERPT
“Don’t.” I pull her closer, brushing my lips against hers. “You want to know something, ask.”
She nods and resumes scraping lightly on my cheeks.
“Here’s another tidbit of information. I’m in no rush to introduce you to my brother. He’s a lady’s man, and he’ll have no problem trying to snatch you from right under my nose. I’m not an idiot and know a good thing when I find it.”
She giggles, the sound breaking any tension from earlier.
“You’re ridiculous.”
“I’m smart.”
“If you had a rough day, we don’t have to go out.”
“I’m tempted to keep you here like this, especially looking like you do. But I thought you wanted to meet your friends for drinks.”
“What’s wrong with the way I look?”
I make a point to sweep my eyes slowly over her face, neck, shoulders, and chest, stopping when I hit her low-cut neckline. “Your tits are about to burst out of your top.”
“They are not!” She swats me playfully.
I cock an eyebrow at her. “Pretty sure every man that sees you tonight is going to think the same thing. Do me a favor and don’t make any sudden movements.”
“Now, you’re being silly. This top doesn’t show that much cleavage.”
To make a point, I lean in and skim my lips along the edge on the fabric, stopping at the lowest point and darting my tongue out to touch her skin. She inhales sharply.
“Now, do you see my point?”

  Fat Cat Liar by Ahren Sanders is the story of Greer Palmer and Lawson Hall.
Lawson was all about getting ahead in the family business..nothing was off the table. Lawson was also a hard love him and leave him guy where no commitment was his commitment. When Lawson works on learning all he can about a possible business deal he doesn’t stop at using the man’s daughter…Greer. Lawson has never met Greer but assumes she is a hard-nosed Social-light and a easy mark to get information out of. Lawson moves into an apartment across from Greer where he stages needing help moving in a bed. What he doesn’t except is for her to be a down to earth beautiful women who cares for others. Her first words to him showed that. The more he gets to know Greer the more he starts to change into someone that is good enough for her but he also has dug himself into a whole. Greer doesn’t play off being rich or having a powerful father…in fact she tries to keep that low key since she has been hurt by people using her before because of it. So Lawson finds that he might have total changed but will Greer believe him?
I so enjoyed their story…I couldn’t put it down until I finished it!

PIECE OF WORK by Staci Hart

Review:

POW-ReleaseBlitzcover-powPiece of Work, an all-new sexy romance from Staci Hart, is LIVE!

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.
His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.
You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.
But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.
And maybe my heart.

FILTHY GODS by R. SCARLETT

Review:

 

Filthy Gods (American Gods 0.5), an all-new Sexy Romance by R. Scarlett is AVAILABLE NOW!!

 

 

Prelude in the American Gods series.
Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them.
And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.
As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.
The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.
Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.
I’d sworn I’d never give him the upper hand, until…
The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?
He just discovered it…and now he has all the power.

My Review
5 Stars!
Filthy Gods by R. Scarlett is book 0.5 in the American Gods series. This is the story of Nathaniel and Juliette.
Nathaniel and Juliette are both at Yale but they are the two top students of their class. They are both comparative and enemies in school. Nathaniel is the rich boy who has it all where as Juliette was in foster care fighting for her place at Yale. Juliette has to work two jobs at first jut to stay at Yale then over the summer she takes a job at the Hawthorne Country Club. While working there she soon learns that Nathaniel mother owns the hotel and that Nathaniel is there. He makes a bargain with her that he won’t tell the other students at Yale that she has to work if she agrees to be with him so that they can work their distraction of each other away.
I am a big fan of Ms. Scarlett’s writing and this book just proved again why I am such a big fan.
This book had to be read in on sitting…couldn’t put it down…loved it!
