Eyes on You

Wolf Henrikson had been waiting on a potential meeting but was stood up. He will be alright with the situation especially when he meets Olivia. He will save her from a bad date and whisk her off, and thing will only heat up from there.

Olivia Foster wanted the date from hell to end but she wasn’t able to be saved by her friend. Then she will get saved by a man who will have her wanting more, even though they had just met. Olivia will follow her feelings which will lead her down a path she never thought to follow.

Eyes on You is a novella in the series Blasphemy by Laura Kaye. Wow is the word when you read this. It was steamy and will make you wish you had Wolf in your life. I really thought Laura Kaye did a great job with this novella.

Wolf’s character was a dream man. He was protective, funny, hot and knew how to work his body and his partners. He was also kind and thoughtful to help someone in need. He was one of the masters of the club and his kink was voyeurism. Now with the kinks that are part of the club voyeurism has to be the least threatening one that would cause any harm to one person. The scenes between Wolf and Olivia are very steamy and written well. I liked Olivia’s character for taking a chance on the wild side. She had once expressed a fantasy to an ex and he laughed at her. That broke her desire to tell others. I liked that with Wolf she felt safe with him to express her desires.

Now I said the author did really well with this novella, but there would be one thing I would change and that would be the length. There is a conflict within the book with her ex-fiance and I kind of wanted more on that story line. I think there was potential to write more which would create more tension. Though for the novella it was well placed and gave enough satisfaction with the solution.

The next story to this series will be coming out this September.

Some Girls Don’t

Some Girls Don'tSelena Durrum was back in her hometown to give a speech. She was nervous, but not because of the speech. It was because she would see Jarrod who had been the love of her life. When she sees him for the first time in fifteen years she knew that there was the fire and love they shared but Selena did not want to be trapped.

Jarrod Weston was a firefighter and loved what he did. Though Jarrod was never complete since Selena had left him. With Selena back only for a couple of days Jarrod knew not to get reattached but it will be hard as he still loved her.

Some Girls Don’t is the second book to the series Outback Heat by Amy Andrews. I liked this novel. It was very fast paced and entertaining to read.

Selena’s character is a driven career woman, it was all she wanted. I liked that about Selena but that meant she had distance herself from others especially in the relationship department. I wanted her to realize that keeping a hold on Jarrod didn’t weaken her. She had lived her life and to be with him would truly make her happy, she could have it all if she gave it a chance. Jarrod’s character was also a driven man and I liked that he was stubborn which could be a problem. Although when he was around Selena he turned back into a seventeen year old who had been in love with her.

What made this very fast paced was the amount of sex that was in the book. It is explosive between Selena and Jarrod. They are full of fire that is great for chemistry but they tend to butt heads together and say things before thinking. Though even with all the bumps in the road I was definitely cheering for Selena and Jarrod being together.

I am reading the third book next.

Dane

DaneDane MacKenziew was back home after ten years. He will be surprised when he sees the woman he had loved was back home as well. Dane will immediately feel their connection that never disappeared, but he will quickly find out that Charlotte was hiding something.

Charlotte Munroe had left her home town at eighteen and it took her ten years to come back home. She thought she was safe there as she knew the man she loved was nowhere around, but that will not be the case. Her first and only love will be back and she is shocked that he wants her back.

Dane is the first book to the series The Mackenzie Family by Liliana Hart. Alright, so first off I really love series that involve a good size family because that lets the author write many stories and who wouldn’t love hunky men. Well I am sad to say that I wasn’t thrilled with the story. This was one of my first novella’s I read from Liliana Hart, and although she can write good sex scenes that is all there was to the story. I wanted more out of these characters.

Warning I am going to be giving away the plot in case you want to read this novella. So, it drove me crazy that Charlotte who had been in love with Dane at eighteen just welcomed him back after some really hot sex. In the book she was not wanting to give the man a second but she quickly let him back into her life. If this was a novel that would be okay because there would obstacles they would have to get threw to get to that happy ending. Now with Dane’s character you get that he wants her back but why did he wait ten years to do so? Then the big bombshell, which was pretty easy to guess, he finds out he has a nine year old son. He wants to be part of his son’s life. Now I would think he would be furious with Charlotte, she kept his son from him for nine years which was a long time. Well he was angry for about a second then he has sex with Charlotte again.

Alright, so from all of that I really don’t think I will be back to this series. I might try something else from the author, perhaps a novel instead. Only time will tell.

Sweet Filthy Boy

Sweet Filthy BoyMia Holland was done with her college graduation and with two of her friends they went to Las Vegas to celebrate. Mia was ready to let loose which meant a possible one night stand. Though Mia chose the wrong guy for a one night stand because Ansel Guillaume wanted more. If Mia was honest with herself she wanted more as well and she was going to take that chance with him in Paris.

Sweet Filthy Boy is the first book to the series Wild Seasons by Christina Lauren. I really liked this book. This was one that I sat down and just read, not taking any breaks to stop reading.

Mia’s character was a young woman who was contemplating life after graduation. She didn’t want to go to Boston, it wasn’t in her heart. I liked that she took a chance even though it was one heck of a chance. It is a brave person who just ups and leaves their home to another country. Now Ansel’s character was a Frenchman who wanted that romance and lust and he will get it with Mia. For me Ansel was a mystery at times. I sometimes felt he wasn’t really showing his true self but that was because he was so busy at work, and everything for them is very new. I liked that you did get to know him more.

The chemistry was explosive between these two. This book has a lot of sex and I mean a lot of sex. Being with Ansel seemed to bring out a playfulness to Mia especially in the bedroom. The chemistry doesn’t seem to be going anywhere even when a problem happens.

So I got all four books to the series since I saw that they were available to check out. I couldn’t resist. I am reading the second book next.

Gillian’s Island

Gillian's IslandGillian Marlboro is the maid of honor in her sisters wedding. Gillian loves her sister and wishes her the best but it was a lot of work. Gillian was looking forward to relaxing on the boat but things will get dangerous when a storm will have them stranded on the island. Gillian was scared but she had Jamie to help her get through the worst of it.

Jamie Foster was the best man in the wedding. He was envious of his best friend and wanted that happy ending. When he meets Gillian he hopes that there could be more but was insecure as he was very smart and not fun like his frat brothers. Jamie will be surprised when Gillian will want him but he will have other things on his mind, like how to survive.

Gillian’s Island is the second book to Sex, Lies & Wedding Cake series by Cat Johnson. I liked this novella and unlike the first story in the series this one had more detail and I felt that this was a complete story. Now did I love it, no, but it was a good quick read and very steamy.

Gillian’s character was the responsible one and I liked that she stepped out of her comfort zone and took a chance with Jamie. She was the opposite of the wedding party but she was like Jamie at least with being responsible. Jamie was very smart and not that frat boy like his friends. He would be the guy that you would want on a stranded island.

The scenes between Gillian and Jamie were pretty intense and very steamy. Though what else would happen when a group of people were stranded on an island.

I am reading the third and final story of the series next.

New Orleans

New OrleansRose Thayer was the maid of honor for her best friend.  She arrived in New Orleans expecting the usual wedding events but she will find herself being sent to the bachelor party as a stripper to find out if the groom will cheat.

New Orleans is the first book to the series Sex, Lies & Wedding Cake by Cat Johnson. Alright, I liked the novella for the most part but I felt that the author could have a lot done more. The transitions between the scenes were too quick, and it seemed that I was missing pieces. I wanted more to the story, for her to flush out the characters. I wanted to know more about Rose and Tim, but all we got was a strange situation and sex. Still there were funny moments, I just wanted more.

I am going to continue with the other two books of the series as I am curious about what will happen next.

‘Tis the Season to Be Kissed

Tis the season to be kissedTamara was spending New Years Eve alone at a friends cabin as she didn’t want to make a mistake and sleep with a guy which she had no future with. Tamara will be surprised when Luke, Georgia’s little brother, comes to the cabin. Instantly Tamara will be tempted and will fight hard to keep away from Luke.

Luke was home after nine months and just wanted to relax. He will be surprised to find someone else at his parents home, though surprise will quickly turn to lust when he sees Tamara. Luke will do his best to seduce Tamara and to let her know he was looking for more than one night.

‘Tis the Season to Be Kissed is a novella by Amy Andrews. This is a quick and steamy book which was fun to read.

I thought that Luke was sweet. Yes he wanted to have sex with Tamara but he was also wanting more. He was also making their night fun. He had that sense of humor you wanted in a guy and even though he was five years younger than Tamara you knew that he was more mature than others his age. I liked Tamara’s character. She was having a pity party but she wasn’t really depressed. She just wanted more out of life, especially her love life. I liked how she let herself have fun and trusted that this time the guy would be leading to more.
