Review – Part-Time Lover

Part-Time Lover (Standalone)
by Lauren Blakely (Author)

This review is from: May 27, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

This was a couldn’t-put-down-sizzling-buildup-yummy-kind-of-read.

I don’t know if it was the early summer heat, the holiday weekend, or that Lauren Blakely just gets better with each book I read.  Part-Time Lover checked off all of my boxes for a cozy up on the couch and do nothing kind of day. Christian and Elise were a fabulous pair and I loved reading every minute of their story.

Elise has been hurt by love before. Married and now widowed the walls around her heart are tall and thick. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to have fun, it’s quite the opposite. Her friends adore that she lives by a carpe diem philosophy, but living life to its fullest doesn’t mean she has to fall in love. She has her career on full speed and nothing stands in her way when she wants to achieve her goals.

Christian loves his life. Retired at age twenty-eight, fit and healthy. The world is his oyster for plucking. He might be a bit bored now that he has nothing to do, but luckily a job offer comes along where he can put his bilingual skills to use and he’s fortunate enough to decide what it is he wants to do next in his life.

What neither Christian nor Elise expected was for fate to intervene on their behalves. When Christian’s family business needs the kind of help that only a woman can provide and Elise’s business needs the kind of expertise that Christian has in spades…well…what’s better than a business deal with a little bit of pleasure on the side? No harm in them getting what they both want, besides it’s just business.

Pack your bags for a whirlwind adventure overseas. Fall madly in love with Christian and Elise in Part-Time Lover.

New Release – Mr. Masters

Title: Mr. Masters
Author: T L Swan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 27, 2018


He was powerful, older and my boss, a lethal combination.
Job satisfaction has taken on a whole new meaning.

When I lied on my resume, I didn’t expect it to matter.
I mean any child would love me; I was born to be a nanny.
I applied for a position working for a woman, or so I thought.
But Julian Masters is definitely all man…the kind you dream of licking chocolate from.

The first day was bad. The kids were the sporn of the devil and I spied through a window and caught him doing something obscene….and equally fascinating.

The second day was worse, he caught me snooping in his bathroom cabinet in my skimpy pyjamas and all hell broke loose.

On the third day, I ran over him in a golf cart.

And by day four I had decided that I wanted that chocolate…all of it.

Melted….on me.

But intelligent, widowed Judges don’t fall for ditzy nannies.

Or do they?

His handsome brow furrowed. “This discussion is at an end. You will do as you are told, for your own safety and protection. If you continue to argue, I shall deal with the matter in a more direct manner.”

“What do you mean?”

His lip quirked in a smile of pure, toe-curling sensuality. “I mean I shall put you across my lap right here and now, lift that skirt you are wearing, and spank your truly delectable bottom until you see things in a more measured light.”

“You…you would hit me?” Lee was incredulous, shocked at this sudden and unexpected turn. Had she escaped one violent maniac just to fall into the hands of another? Surely even she couldn’t be that unlucky. She peered into his features, searching for any hint of menace or cruelty. There wasn’t any, and bizarrely, she was not frightened of Raffaele Sabbatini, even now. Quite the contrary, in fact. Something in his words, in his quietly confident, authoritative expression, caused her pussy to clench. Christ, was she actually wet?

“I would never hit a woman. I said I would spank you. That is quite different, and I will do so if it is necessary to keep you safe. Do I make myself clear, Miss Gallagher?”

“I… I…” Lee gaped at him, lost for words.

“Do I make myself clear?” he repeated, his tone softer now.

“Y-yes. Perfectly clear.” Lee resisted the impulse to call him sir, maybe even salute. And she knew, without a shadow of doubt, that she had lost this argument. That she would lose every argument with this man if he employed such tactics.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, what am I thinking? He wouldn’t…

But he would. She knew he would. And worse, she would let him.

“Okay.” Her voice was little more than a croak.

“Okay?” Again, he lifted that sardonic eyebrow.

“Yes. Okay. I’ll come to your house.”

He inclined his head in polite acknowledgement. “I am relieved, naturally. Though I confess to a slight edge of disappointment. I would have thoroughly enjoyed spanking you.” He shrugged and offered her a smile. “Another time, perhaps.”

After a terrifying encounter on the idyllic island of Capri, Lee Gallagher has no option but to accept help from a handsome stranger in a crimson Maserati. Sophisticated and drop-dead sexy, Rafe Sabbatini is a knight in shining armour fit for the 21st century.

Lee’s a loner, and fiercely independent. She came to Capri to paint. She’s not looking for a relationship, and certainly not one that involves finding herself tied to the bed of a sensual Latin lover.

But Rafe proves hard to resist. He wants the shy English woman he found by the roadside and he’s determined to have her. She’s been hurt. She’s scared and alone but Rafe knows just how to get past her fears to release the sensual woman beneath.

Rafe’s practiced, knowing touch easily overcomes her defences and promises to fulfil all Lee’s fantasies. But even as she surrenders to the stern commands and dominant loving of this enigmatic stranger she has secrets of her own, and a past which is fast catching up with her. Can Rafe protect her when danger threatens their fragile relationship.
