Loved by You (Tropical Heat) by Sophia Knightly

Review:

Loved by You (Tropical Heat Series, #5) - Sophia Knightly

 

Fate tends to make an appearance at just the right time.  There are moments where life can become unbearable, but then fate sneaks up to tap you on the shoulder and turn life in a whole new direction.  Piper and Roman have a history.  What began as young love matured into broken hearts. Life pulled them in different directions, but a chance meeting could be a new beginning for a love interrupted.  Ms. Knightly showcases humor, heart and a hint of mystery in Loved by You.  Sometimes crazy, but always delightful and that makes it irresistibly entertaining.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

DIRTY, RICH ONE NIGHT STAND.

 

That's all it was supposed to be. Her. Him. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye. He's a stranger. And yet, he's not. She knows him even though he doesn’t know her.

He's the powerful attorney, now world-renowned after coming off the trial of a century which was publicized across the country. And I'm one of the reporters that sat in his courtroom.

I watched him, studied him, got to know him from afar which isn't hard since I know his exact brand of confidence, arrogance, and wealth.

I know his type. I've dated his type. Which is why when I happen to come face to face with him, when sparks fly and heat simmers between us, I know what happens if I say "yes" to Reese Summer. 

I know he'll taste like sin and sex, even before he kisses me.

I know he'll feel like pleasure and passion, even before he touches me.

I know he'll demand more than I wants to give, and yet, because I dare to give myself to him, the result will be deliciously hot.

I know that I will not leave his bed without being utterly, completely sated. 

And I know that I will leave the next morning anyway.

And so, I do. 

And so, he follows.

And as chase begins my question becomes: Is Reese Summer THE one or is he really just a dirty, arrogant lie that should have stayed a one night stand?

REVIEW:  DIRTY RICH ONE NIGHT STAND BY LISA RENEE JONES

 

Dirty Rich One Night StandDirty Rich One Night Stand by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Dirty, Rich One Night Stand is exactly the type of read I've come to expect from Lisa Renee Jones. Fearless, Seductive and Larger than life. This is an author that knows how to push the envelope without detracting from the story. There's always a mystery waiting in the wings. Whether it be a dangerous game of cat and mouse or a seductive tango of love, readers are never disappointed when Ms. Jones is at the helm.

EXCERPT

 

“You’re as perfect as I knew you would be,” he says, his voice managing to be both sandpaper and silk on my nerve endings, as he adds, “and almost as naked as I want you to be.”

The idea that he has wanted me as much as I have wanted him does funny things to my stomach, but more so, delivers an unexpected wave of illogical vulnerability. This is sex. The end. I don’t want or need to feel anything more. I want and need him naked and fucking me now, fast, hard. That’s safe. Desperate to find that safe place, to shift the control from him to me, I push to my toes, my breasts molding to his chest, and press my lips to his lips. They are warm, and he is hard everywhere I am soft.

And his response to my kiss, the answering moan I am rewarded with, is white-hot fire in my blood that he ignites further with a deep, sizzling stroke of his tongue. He slants his mouth over mine, deepening the connection, kissing me with a fierceness no other man ever has, but then some part of me has known from moment one that he is like no man I have ever known. Which explains why he is everything I want. And nothing about this night is what I expected, any more than this man is anything I can control.

But there is something intensely arousing about the idea of trying.

As if claiming I am reaching for the impossible, he molds me closer, his hand between my shoulder blades, his tongue playing wickedly with mine, but I meet him stroke for stroke, arching into him. He cups my ass and pulls me solidly against his erection. He wins this one. Now I am the one moaning, arching into him, and I welcome the intimate connection. I burn for the moment he will be inside me.

But I also want him to burn for this just as much as I do, and I need to touch this man. Really, really, need to touch him. My hand presses between us, and I stroke the hard line of his shaft. Reese tears his mouth from mine, pressing me hard against the pillar supporting the window again, and when his hands leave my body, when his palms press to the concrete above me again, I sense his withdrawal is about control. I was winning. I confirm that as reality when our eyes lock, and the dash of fire in his eyes is lit by one part passion and one part challenge.

“If I slide my fingers between your legs right now,” he says, “are you wet for me? Are you ready for me?”

“Why don’t you find out for yourself?” I dare him, testing him, pushing him.

This tight end is at the top of his game.

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

NOW LIVE: JAGGED EDGE (ARSENAL) BY CARA CARNES



 

Jagged Edge

The Arsenal, Book 1

by Cara Carnes

Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense


Blurb


Mary “The Edge” Reynolds is the most sought-after back office operative around-
the creative genius pulling the ultimate bad-asses out of impossible situations.

She’s never failed on a mission, and she’s not about to fail on the most important
mission ever-keeping her newly designed security system safe. Relying on
others isn’t in her nature, but the newly formed Arsenal is her only hope for
escape when she’s kidnapped.
She is the Edge.
The Edge never breaks.
Never quits.
Dylan Mason and his brothers have put everything on the line to form The
Arsenal. When the paramilitary arena is rocked by Edge’s capture, he’ll do
whatever it takes to get the fearless operative back, but his wary heart isn’t ready
to handle the vulnerable woman buried beneath the hardened shell. Getting her
back was simple. Keeping her and her “security system” HERA out of enemy
hands is another story.
Together they must hunt down the faction behind her capture and subsequent
torture to keep HERA from becoming an unstoppable terroristic threat. What
they uncover could destroy them both.

 Excerpt



“Bravo, Charlie has eyes on two packages. Repeat, two packages secured.” The gun lowered. Black marks ran below pasture green eyes and down across a firm, square jawline. Dark hair so brown it was almost black hung in disarray around the man’s handsome face.

Mary knew that face.

Relief washed through her. The sensation struck like a tsunami. Dizziness assailed her. Her stomach roiled, but she didn’t have the energy to puke.

Exfil.

She’d survived.

Two packages secured. The man’s words ricocheted through her.

No. No. No.

“Three.” She rasped the words.

Intense green eyes settled on her, then returned to Glenn, who’d stood.

“Get on your knees,” the man repeated to her fellow cellmate.

“It hurts,” he whined.

“Not telling you again.” The threat hung in the room, a fourth presence Mary suspected would overpower the man cowering beside her.

“Three,” she repeated. Her throat burned and throbbed with the effort she expended.

The man released his grip on the rifle. It settled against his side from the strap wrapped around thick, muscular shoulders. And arms. Mary trembled when he reached into a pocket and pulled out a water bottle.

Long legs ate the space between them until her tunneling gaze saw only thighs. He palmed her chin. “You’re safe now, Edge. We’ve got you.”

REVIEW:  ALMOST ALWAYS (ALMOST) BY CHRISTIE RIDGWAY

 

Almost Always (Book 2)Almost Always by Christie Ridgway

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


In order to find our strengths, we must face our weaknesses. Never have I come across more powerful words than that statement. Almost Always is a proclamation of those words amplified. Ms. Ridgway speaks to the heart and mind with the courageous journey of Griffin Lowell. His adventurous spirit and inquisitive mind has taken him all over the world. His experiences have broken his heart, opened his mind and haunted his dreams, but his greatest challenge is born from writer's block. One women is determined to change all that and maybe find a little adventure of her own. Jane and Griffin learn the value of facing fear while following the heart and end up delivering a little balm to the soul.

Almost Always - Ebook

 

 

 

 

Jane Pearson needs a job and daring war reporter Griffin Lowell needs someone to insist he get to work on his memoir. His literary agent hired the bookish blonde and while Griffin would prefer to hide from his painful memories in drunken beach parties and busty bikini girls, prim and proper Jane is becoming more sultry and sexy—to his eyes—by the day. Maybe she’s the distraction he needs…

 

 

But Jane has a way of getting what she wants, and soon he’s sharing secrets and then they are trading sizzling kisses. And then…summer nights, a moonlit beach, the sound of waves crashing on the sand, all come together to heal what’s broken and maybe create something entirely new and almost impossible to believe can come true—a happy-ever-after.
