Release Date: Oct. 18, 2013
My Rating: 4 ★★★★☆

Synopsis:

Letting go is sometimes the only gift love has left to give.

Sera arrives in New York to help Lindál, but a vampeen attack brings her face to face with two men and changes her life forever.

Diego Savage lives up to his name.  Cynical, rebellious and a womanizer, he doesn’t believe in the trinities at all. Only a handful of people know the truth about his scarred heart and terrible past, and it would take a miracle for him to change.  A miracle, or someone like Sera with her special gift.

Blake Harvey, dedicated NYC police lieutenant, takes one look at the tall, supple woman with the crystal blue eyes and glowing skin and knows his life is about to change in ways he can’t even define, but his body is already responding to with a power that is hard to deny.

The bonding has begun…

Warning:  This story features two super hot alpha heroes, multiple sex scenes, including anal sex, MM sexual play, and MMF sex.  Do not read this book if frank sexual language and sex scenes offend you.
No non-humans were harmed except for large numbers of Grimoré, who died with satisfactory squeals…

My Thoughts:

WOW! This one starts off with some serious steam, sweat and scorching M/M/F sex.  Once again I didn’t put it down until I was done. Sera’s Gift may be the hottest, sexiest, and most heartwarming of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed that the Trinities from the first two books played a big part in this one. The story flowed really well from the first book to the last I got to reconnect with Beth, Mia and their guys and fall in love with Sera, Blake, and Diego.

Sera is “called” to Earth to help her brother and she does. What no one but she and Lindál knew was that by using her abilities to save him Sera would be exiled to Earth. She never understood why her brother loved it here, but she was about to learn. Her first night she meets Diego and Blake in a very tense situation. Sera learns to love and live fully through Diego and Blake.

I learned so much about Diego, in the first two books he comes across as a player and self-centered. He was but there was a very good reason for it and that reason just plain broke my heart. Once he gives himself to something he does it all the way. That’s exactly what he did with Sera and Blake, due to that love and surrender he was hurt the most when Blake made the decision he did.

Blake is the typical cop, but accepts the situation as best as he can. He gives his best shot until he blames his partners for the price he had to pay. It was difficult to work through the issues with him, Sera and Diego, but I loved that they worked it out on their own and came together.

I was very happy and satisfied with the ending. I do wish there was going to be more in this series.

Review: Taken By Him

Taken by HimTaken by Him (The Billionaire’s Club #2) by Red Garnier
Pages: 112
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Review Source: Publisher
Pub. Date: May 28, 2013
My Rating: 2.75

Synopsis:

The Billionaire’s Club: The wealthiest, most powerful men, not only in Chicago, but in the world.  They are used to having whatever they want, whenever they want it.

Luke Preston is the ultimate playboy among his billionaire friends.  Every bad girl in Chicago has surrendered in his bed.  Some good girls, too.  But when he ends up in the hospital after an assassination attempt, his friends suggest he take a long vacation to recoup, regroup and lay off the women until the man is caught.  However, when Luke lays eyes on the stunning brunette across the beach, she inspires every dark, erotic thought his mind can conjure.

Peyton Lane has always been serious and responsible and she’s determined to have some fun for once in her life.  And that means a deliciously, sexy affair with a stranger while she’s on vacation.  So when a blond Adonis named Luke crosses her path at the Cancun resort, she’s determined that he will be the one. But Peyton gets more than she bargained for when Luke introduces her to a passion unlike any she has ever experienced and she discovers that behind that charming smile are secrets and a beautiful, damaged soul.

My Thoughts:

This was a light and very steamy read. It’s a sexy story about a vacation fling and two people finding the love they didn’t know they needed. I liked both Luke and Peyton well enough, but the story is so short there wasn’t much depth or character development. The sex scenes were really well written and very hot. The HEA is believable even if it felt a bit rushed.

Taken By Him is the second book in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone. If you’re looking for something sexy and fun that won’t take up a lot your time this is one to read.

Review: Mia’s Return

Mia's ReturnMia’s Return (Destiny’s Trinities #2) by Tracy Cooper-Posey
Pages: 95
Publisher: Tracy Cooper-Posey
Source: Publisher/NetGalley
Release Date: Oct. 4, 2013
My Rating: 3.5

Synopsis:

Alex has a past he’d rather no one learns about…until Mia returns.

Ten years ago Alexander hungered for Mia Menendez and for a single day they had indulged that passion before tragedy struck. Now Mia is back, but she thinks Alexander died ten years ago, and no man has been able to stir her heart since. The truth could kill her.

Wyatt Whitacker, demon hunter, hates Alexander and all his kind.  But one look at Mia and her pulse-stopping curves and his scarred, angry heart begins to melt and his body to rouse in ways he’s long forgotten.

The bonding has begun…

Warning:  This story features two super hot alpha heroes, multiple sex scenes, including anal sex, MM sexual play, and MMF sex.  Do not read this book if frank sexual language and sex scenes offend you.
No non-humans were harmed except for large numbers of Grimoré, who died with satisfactory squeals…

My Thoughts:

Another sizzling erotic romance that I didn’t put down until the end; which came way too soon.  This is the second book of the Destiny’s Trinities series and they must be read in order.

Mia has loved Alex since she was 16 and only shared one unforgettable encounter with him, but she has never forgotten him. No man has been able to move her the way he did. Imagine her shock when she sees him across an elevator and he runs from her. I loved the way she got his contact information. Telling Alex and trying to convince herself she just wants to see him and know that he’s happy and she’ll leave leads to the introduction of the next evil character into the story.

Alex is a man tortured by his past behavior and actions on top of having to leave Mia. He can’t refuse her request to talk. After he rejects her and she runs of course he goes after her. This is where Wyatt shows up and pretty much saves them both. The journey toward the bonding is an emotional and healing one. All three must face past hurts and fears of what they will become.

The characters are well developed and the story flowed nicely from the first book into this one. I’m again left waiting for the third novella. The ending is a cliffhanger and again I wish it had been longer. I recommend this series to anyone looking for well written and very hot m/m/f sex in all its wonderful varieties.

 Book Description:

Business partners, Smith and Brock share their fortune, success, and they share their women. A healthy competitive streak built MDR Software into a multi-million-dollar enterprise, and their on-going bets continuously raise the stakes. The current proposition: an arranged ménage encounter through the sex club, Castle Dolce Vita. The prize: a sexy kitten, Kyra.

While the two wealthy, powerful men are enough to pique Kyra’s interests to fulfill the Pact of Seduction and live out her ultimate fantasy, a bet forged between the men comes with an intriguing promise. Her pleasure is now part of their wager.

Soon, Kyra fights against her desire for the men as she struggles through the complications of a ménage relationship. Of course, the men take their bets seriously and are determined to show Kyra that in this game of seduction no one loses.

My Review:

This is a really good, really HOT read. I was thrown right into the story and the first steamy and intense ménage scene from page one. I was engaged in the story from start to finish. I liked all three of the main characters and found them to be believable, especially Kyra.

Kyra just wants to fulfill a fantasy and enlists Smith and Brock to help. She isn’t looking for anything deeper or lasting. Unfortunately she didn’t count these two being as hot, alpha and irresistible. When it came to protect herself and avoid living the life her mother did with her father Kyra has to rip her heart out and walk away. Lucky for her the “boys” would have none of that 😉 I want my own Brock and Smith, these guys are good at everything they do and when they decided they want Kyra they aren’t letting anything stand in their way.
I’m really pleased with the ending. The only problem is that, once again, I’d have loved to have more of these three. Although Bet On Ecstasy is the third book in the Pact of Seduction series it can be read as a stand-alone. I plan to go back and start the series from the beginning.

If you’re looking for a quick read that has emotion, well developed characters, oh and plenty of steamy, hot and good ménage sex this is definitely one to pick up.

Review: Beth’s Acceptance

Beth's AcceptanceBeth’s Acceptance by Tracy Cooper-Posey
Pages: 107
Publisher: Tracy Cooper-Posey
Review Source: Author/NetGalley
Release Date: Sept. 20, 2013
My Rating: 3.5 Stars

Description

Can she accept the destiny being thrust at her?

For weeks, the darkly sinful Zachariah, her favorite customer at McGinty’s, has been raising NYC student Beth Siegel’s pulse, driving her crazy with need.

Neither can she keep the tall, blue-eyed mysterious Luke who haunts the library stacks at her day job, out of her mind or her sweaty, desperate fantasies.

Fate hands Beth a startling destiny: to bond with both of them—a bond formed via sex. Sex with either one of them would have been fabulous. Together? Irresistible.

But fate is a two-edged sword and the bond comes at a price. Luke and Zack are not what they seem, and the world as Beth knows it not quite the real deal. Can Beth accept the price the bond will ask of her?

Warning:  This story features two super hot alpha heroes, multiple sex scenes, including anal sex, MM sexual play, and MMF sex.  Do not read this book if frank sexual language and sex scenes offend you.
No non-humans were harmed except for large numbers of Grimoré, who died with satisfactory squeals…

My Thoughts:

It was sizzling erotic romance that I didn’t put down until the end and I can hardly wait for book two. This is a quick read that has well developed characters.

Beth has lusted after Luke and Zach for weeks and when they come together it’s intense, explosive and oh so hot. Beth accepts the situation remarkably well, almost too well to be believable, but I prefer that to over wasting time with that in a novella.

The reason behind the bonding and what they will have to face is gripping and fresh. This is my first read by Tracy Cooper-Posey and was pleased to get a well written and thought out story. I’ll be reading more of her work, especially the next two books expected in the Destiny’s Trinity series.

Review: A Touch of Lilly

DarkerReview/adults/over18

A touch of LillyA Touch of Lilly by Nina Pierce
Pages: 192
Publisher: Aspendawn Books
Review Source: Publisher/NetGalley
Release Date: Jun 30 2013
Rating: 3.5

Description:

Ex-Chicago detective LILLY D’ANGELO has a secret she doesn’t share with anyone. A master of the one night stand, she’s given up ever finding a soul mate and thrown herself head first into her career. That is, until she captures the wrong alien. Kidnapped and sold into the sex slave trade, she’s shipped into deep space. Barely escaping with her life, Lilly now travels the galaxy working as a bounty hunter using her secret talents to bring down criminals and seeking revenge on the one male who ruined her life.  

Agent DALLAS SAWYER works for deep space’s version of the FBI. After a disastrous mission that left several of his team members murdered, a president executed, and Dallas near death, he’s determined to take down the assassin targeting government officials. When a sexy human female gets between him and his goal, Dallas and his alien partner find themselves on the receiving end of a passionate night they won’t soon forget and a proposition that may very well blow up in their faces. 

 Because in deep space … true love can happen with just a touch.

My Thoughts:

This is definitely a very HOT erotic romance. It also has a good story that was delivered well. On top of the good ménage smex there’s action, mystery, and insight into the emotions and motivations of the characters.

Lilly has a special ability that she sees as her personal albatross. It has caused a lot of trouble in her life; the least of which was the kidnapping and attempted smex slave incident. She has come to terms with the fact that she’ll be alone forever with one night stands here and there. What she doesn’t expect is to run into Dallas and Thaegan. Lilly is drawn to Dallas and he is able to resist her and get past her shields to the vulnerable woman inside. In return Lilly helps Dallas come to terms with a traumatic event and loss in his past. I really like Dallas; it took me a bit to warm up to Thaegan.

The one thing that bothered me was the need for the glossary. I went back and forth too much in the first chapter. The terms could have been handled within the story and it would have been much less distracting.

ARC Review: Feather Light

Feather Light

Feather Light by Lorenz Font
Pages: 257
Publisher: The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House
Review Source: Publisher/NetGalley
Release Date: October 10, 2013
My Rating: 3.5 Stars

Blurb:

Parker Davis has conquered three major American cities and is the new ‘it’ man in massage. He earned the nickname ‘Feather Light’ for his sensual touches, tender caresses, and soft voice eliciting an almost orgasmic release. Clients from all over clamor for his services and his clientele are growing by the minute. Business is at its peak, which makes Parker a busy man who has no time to deal with problems, let alone dwell on his blindness. With his declining vision, Parker has to accept his limitations and the changes brought forth by this disease, but he is not ready to relinquish the last control he has left. He is still the master in his bedroom.

Kelly Storm, a Hollywood actress, will do whatever it takes to get some much-deserved peace. Being famous has its perks, except the little privacy her popularity afforded her is slowly eating at her. With the paparazzi hounding her every minute of the day, and her personal life under constant scrutiny, Kelly wants a semblance of normalcy wherever she can get it. Under the urging of a close friend, she agrees give Parker a try.

Their first meeting is nothing she expected. Kelly finds comfort in his gentle probing and the spellbinding experience guaranteed to keep her coming back for more. Parker knows the woman on his table is special. He feels her vulnerability with his fingertips and her smooth curves leave a burning ache inside him.

One night of steamy passion is all it takes to know that they wanted each other in more ways than one. Kelly hides in heavy disguises, making it impossible for Parker to know her true identity. What secret is Kelly keeping and will she trust Parker enough to tell him the truth? Will Parker see beyond Kelly’s lies to show her what a future with him holds?

My Thoughts:

This was a nicely paced enjoyable read about two people with a few issues to deal with. I was happy with the fact that it focused on the relationship between Parker and Kelly. Don’t misunderstand there was some angst but nothing that had to do with anyone being in danger or chased in any way. That was fairly refreshing.

Parker has to deal with his increasing blindness and face the fact that he really hasn’t dealt with it no matter how hard he pretends to. I liked him a lot, but thought he went way OTT when he found Kelly’s true identity. I won’t spoil it, but it was tough to read and forgive him, which I felt Kelly did way too easy. I understood why Kelly kept her fame a secret. She wanted to be loved for the real person she was, not the one on the big screen. I think she should’ve divulged this little tid bit sooner; maybe Parker wouldn’t have gone so far off the rails. The knowledge of who Kelly was brought everything to a head and the two of them had to face their issues and do it on their own.

Overall, this is a heartwarming story with some wonderfully hot and steamy sex scenes and a happy ending 🙂
