ADORED Synopsis: A man who gave up on love Mitch Bradford is an intimidating man. In his professional life, he has a reputation for demolishing his opponents in the courtroom. At the exclusive BDSM club Sanctum, he prefers disciplining pretty submissives with no strings attached. In his line of work, there’s no time for a healthy relationship. After a few failed attempts, he knows he’s not good for any woman—especially not his best friend’s sister. A woman who always gets what she wants Laurel Daley knows what she wants, and her sights are set on Mitch. He’s smart and sexy, and it doesn’t matter that he’s a few years older and has a couple of bitter ex-wives. Watching him in action at work and at play, she knows he just needs a little polish to make some woman the perfect lover. She intends to be that woman, but first she has to show him how good it could be. A killer lurking in the shadows When an unexpected turn of events throws the two together, Mitch and Laurel are confronted with the perfect opportunity to explore their mutual desire. Night after night of being close breaks down Mitch’s defenses. The more he sees of Laurel, the more he knows he wants her. Unfortunately, someone else has their eyes on Laurel and they have murder in mind.

My Review 

3 Stars 

I enjoyed this short but sexy read by Lexi Blake. 

The story is about Mitch and Laurel. It's a story of forbidden romance with Laurel being his best friends sister. Mitch doesn't think he is good enough Laurel and try's very hard to distance himself from Laurel but fate seems to have a way of drawing them together. 

What I liked about this book was the element and drama that ran through out the story. It helped to keep me interested in the story. It's a fairly short read so I read it fairly quickly. 

Overall a hot, sexy read with added drama thrown in. 

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Blog Tour- Yours forever by Joya Ryan




yours forever cover



About Yours Forever: For fans of J Lynn, Jodi Ellen Malpas and Sylvia Day comes the final book in the Reign trilogy. This is an all-consuming, raw and powerful love story that seduces, surprises and stays with you. Playing at forever is a dangerous game… Torn between two men and surrounded by secrets, Lana is forced to make an agonising choice. But what – and who – does she really want?

Review 

5 Stars 

This is the final book in the series and  I absolutely loved it. I have really enjoyed this series. 

The story picks up where book 2 ends and Lana is torn between Jack and Cal. She is in love with two men who both have different qualities and doesn't know how she will choose between them. I'm not going to say much more about the plot as I don't want to give too much away. 

What I liked about this story was not only the romance element but the drama and the bit of mystery that the author throws in.  There were lots of twists and turns and it did have me guessing which way it was going . I have to say that  the author was very brave for the ending but for me I think it was perfect. I was on one person's team all the way through I won't say who because it might give away the plot. 

I read the story in one sitting as I found it compelling and wanting to know what happened next.  The characters were great. Lana really came out of herself in this book and who wouldn't find it hard to choose between two sexy alpha males. 

Overall a great sexy emotional read where the author takes you on a roller coaster ride. This will be a series that I will revisit and I look forward to future books by Joya Ryan. 



Exclusive Excerpt: Now you’re worried about me?” I scoffed. He hit me with a dark glare and stepped forward. “I’ve always been worried about you.” I wanted to yell and scream and tell him he was full of it. Because he’d watched me cry, heard me beg—beg—for him to stay, and still turned away. The memory sickened me but it didn’t change the outcome. I’d begged for him. Something a weak person would do. I hated being weak. Tried so hard to feel anything but that single emotion. Which was why Jack was the best kind of sinful pleasure. Because in one breath he made me feel strong—and in another he made me beg. Only he could cause a war between two such powerful emotions. But I couldn’t give in now. My father was gone, my world wrecking like a slow moving train collision and I was on the brink of snapping under the pressure. “I’m done with you,” I whispered. Wild heat flamed like melting obsidian behind those electrifying eyes. He pushed the chair that separated us out of the way, toppling it over onto the soaked grass and the force made mud splattered on my ankle. Jack stepped into the newly open path and didn’t stop until the tip of my nose brushed against his wet chest. He pinched my chin and lifted my face to the rain. I stared up at him, eyes fluttering from the drops of water hitting me. His gaze was ensnaring and his expression burned me up as he looked down at me, haloed by the gray sky and thick blanket of rain. He was an angel. A stark, beautiful angel of darkness. “Say what you need to say,” he rasped. “Be done with me if that’s what you want.” His hips shifted, pressing into my body and I bit back a moan. “But I’m nowhere near done with you.”

  EXCERPT: “I take it you found out about me joining the trainee program at Sanctum.” “I don’t think it’s a good idea. I don’t think it’s professional for the two of us to be at the same club together. I count on that club, Laurel. The few friends I have in life are there.” “All right. I’ll let them know I won’t be coming anymore.” She took a deep breath and there was a hollowness to her expression he despised. It was only there for a moment and then her face was a polite blank. “Do you need anything? Coffee? You skipped lunch. I could get you a sandwich.” “Just like that? You’ll leave it like that? I expected more of a fight out of you.” She shook her head. “I didn’t join to cause you harm or to take something away from you. I joined because I wanted to explore that side of myself. Since you’ve made it plain that my presence takes away from your enjoyment of something you need, I’ll leave.” How did she do this to him? She’d had him in knots since the moment he’d met her. “Could you give me a couple of minutes to catch up? I didn’t even know you were interested in the lifestyle.” Now her inner brat made an appearance, those pretty blue eyes rolling. “Of course you did, Mitchell. That’s a complete cop out and unworthy of you, counselor. If you’re going to defend yourself at least do it properly. You’ve known I was interested in D/s since the moment you hired me.” He had. He’d found books by Sanctum’s resident authors, Amber Rose and Dakota Cheyenne. Silly pen names for Serena Dean-Miles and Laurel’s sister-in-law, Bridget Daley. Bridget was the one who had sparked Laurel’s interest, though he’d rather thought it had all been a means to an end. “I thought it was really me you were interested in.”

Review- Bite by Nick Louth

Bite




The most gripping thriller you’ll ever read, Bite is a breath-taking ride of a novel, a high-concept conspiracy thriller about a virus outbreak and a man who will never give up the search for his missing girlfriend.
Tomorrow should be the greatest day of Erica Stroud-Jones's life. In just 24 hours this brilliant young scientist will present her secret work to a conference in Amsterdam - research that promises to revolutionise the battle against a deadly tropical disease. Millions of lives could be saved; a Nobel Prize beckons.
Arriving to watch her are sceptics and rivals, admirers and enemies. Erica's own eyes will be on sculptor Max Carver, her American new love to whom she will dedicate her achievement.
Tomorrow never comes.
Erica vanishes during the night. Max, desperate, terrified, sets out to find her, descending into an underworld full of malice and cunning. But even he is shocked by the dark terror he finds in the heart of the woman he loves.

My Review 

3.5 Stars 

It's a big statement to say this book is the 'most gripping thriller you'll ever read'. However I did enjoy the book.

It took me a little while to get into the story but once I did I was hooked and wanted to keep reading. There were parts that I got a little confused and had to re-read to make sure I understood what happened. The plot was very good and there were plenty and turns into the story. It seemed to flow well at the times when I knew what was going on. I liked the chapters which were based in Africa that I found interesting also. The characters were great in the story and the author developed the characters well that I felt that you got to know them well. The female lead Erica was a great strong character. I also liked her diary entries in the book. I think this book would make a great beach read for holiday's. Overall a great enjoyable read.

*I received an ARC from the Little Brown Book Group in exchange for an honest review.

Blog Tour- Salvation and Secrets by L.A Cotton




Title: Salvation and Secrets (Chastity Falls Series Book 2)
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary
Release Date: April 17th

~ Synopsis ~
Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing.
Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets.
Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more.
Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, he’s determined to protect her—at all costs.
Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good?
Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

My Review

Warning this review may contain spoilers for book 1.

I was looking forward to reading the second book in the series and learning more about Ana and Jackson.

The story starts where book 1 ended with Ana still trying to get over Jackson leaving her. It's the new start of a school year and Ana is trying to move on with her life. We get more of Paul in this book who wants more than friendship from Ana and in this book he become a real friend to Ana and someone she can really depend  on .

It was good that we got to hear Jackson's POV in this book. You could finally get to see his perceptive and can see how he struggles with his loyalties. I can't say that i fully agreed with all of his actions at times.

Whilst I enjoyed this second book, I couldn't get into to as much as I did book 1. The last 30% was great and I hooked. I look forward to seeing where the story goes in book 3 as i fear there are still lots of obstacles for them both to overcome.

Cover Reveal- The Offer by Karina Halle

We are very excited to announce a brand new stand-alone from NYT Bestselling author Karina Halle!








She thinks he's an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she's an uptight prude.
But he's about to make her an offer she can't refuse.

Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola’s perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.

Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She’s struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she’d be at age thirty-one.

Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It’s pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn’t mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.

But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.

She might just lose her heart.

                                               Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble...
