Lost in You ; Master and Mercenaries – The Forgotten #3 (Series)
by Lexi Blake (Author)

This review is from: July 29, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

I have been head over heels in love with Lexi’s books for years and even more so with the storyline that has involved Theo Taggart and The Lost Boys. The books revolving around the evil Hope McDonald plot has captivated me from the very beginning and the Forgotten series is, I feel, some of Lexi’s best writing. In Lost in You the series comes to a tipping point where agencies collide, secrets are revealed, people make huge revelations and the tide begins to change.

As I began this novel, I was overcome with joy at everything that happened just in the first few chapters and Lexi continued to not disappoint as the book continued. This book will go down as one of my favorites. This is saying a lot because I have loved each book in the Forgotten series along with every book in her Masters and Mercenaries series, but this one is just everything!!

As a huge fan of her work I know the dedication Lexi puts into each book and the fans will pour over each moment like I did. Some will gasp in shock and others will clap in glee. What I want to say (since I don’t want to give spoilers away) everything happened as it should have and now I wait in great anticipation for the next Lost Boys book for it will be epic.

Lost in You is a tale that is emotional, super steamy, and still so riveting that the story grabbed me right from the beginning and held me until the very end. Throw in the snarky, funny characters that I absolutely adore and I was hooked!

Robert and Ariel have been dancing around each other for years, but they both have been holding back for their own reasons. Ariel has secrets about her past and Robert is afraid of his unknown past and the beast that lies within him.

With their current mission as a fact finding mission only, Ariel has been sent along to help weed out the traitor that has been giving out their secrets and ultimately their whereabouts on every mission up to this point. Ariel is a psychologist and should be able to pin down who the traitor in the midst is while working in the field alongside everyone, something she hasn’t been able to do while sitting in one on one sessions with each man. She’s also looking forward to some one on one time with the man who has been circling her personal space, Robert. The only problem is, could he eventually catch up to his past and leave her sitting alone wanting him in the present.

Robert has wanted Ariel from the first moment he met her. What he fears is the beast that comes out in the nightmares he suffers while he sleeps. He would never want to harm the woman he’s come to care about, but the more time he spends with Ariel, the harder it becomes to stay away. Once he has a taste of her he never wants to let her go, but when his past walks through the door, he might not have a choice.

New Release – Bossy Brothers: Joey by JA Huss

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Bossy Brothers: Joey
Series: Bossy Brothers #2
Author: JA Huss
Genre: MMFM Erotic Suspense
Release Date: July 29, 2019

BLURB

Six years before my phone rang and changed my life forever, I made a mistake.

I met a girl, we had some fun, and then we had a baby. And I fell pretty damn hard for my daughter. I was going to be there. I was going to give her everything I never had. I was going to have a family.

And then her mother disappeared and took my baby with her.

And now she’s done it again. Because that call that changed my life was from my five-year-old daughter asking me if I knew where her Mommy was.

Then came the lawyers. And the demands from her super-rich, super-powerful messed-up family. And the little fact that my ex didn’t just “disappear” she was “presumed dead”.

I don’t live a traditional lifestyle and I’m not in a traditional relationship.

But I can pretend if I have to.

And that was the plan when my two “best friends” and I decided to hire “professional liar” Brooke Alder to be my fake fiancée.

It’s totally gonna work.  As long as MY super-rich, super-powerful, messed-up family doesn’t get in the way.

Bossy Brothers: Joey is book two in the Bossy Brothers series and features a delicious, burning hot, MMFM, surprise-baby, fake fiancée story with a twist that proves committed couples don’t just come in two’s, mistakes can be a good thing, and for some people, non-traditional love is exactly the kind they should fight for.

EXCERPT

JOEY
They’re on the loveseat facing the window and in profile from my view. Huck is down on his knees, head between Brooke’s legs. She’s gripping his hair, head thrown back, eyes closed, and her plump mouth open to allow the moans to escape.
Huck reaches up, grabs the front of her sundress, and drags it down so her bra is exposed. He does that again with the bra, and her tits bounce out. All the while he’s licking her pussy.
One hand grabs one breast and squeezes. Hard. Hard enough to make Brooke whimper. And the other one slides between her legs.
He fingers her as I watch, my dick getting hard at the sight of them.
Footsteps on the stairs make me look over my shoulder. Wald comes up around the banister. Saying nothing, but looking me dead in the eyes.
He licks his lips and I turn back to keep watching.
Wald’s hands slide around my hips and his chest presses into my back as he reaches for my already hard cock beneath my slacks.
“Wald,” I say. But it’s so soft, I don’t think he hears me.
Lie. It’s a lie. He hears me.
They planned this.
He and Huck planned this on the way over.
Wald grabs my hand and reaches for his dick, placing my palm over his growing hardness under his pants. He squeezes himself using my hand to do it and I fucking moan. I can’t help it.
Then he’s kissing my neck, whispering, “Come on, dude. Play along. You know you want to,” in my ear as he begins to unbuckle my belt.
I suck in a breath of air, thinking up a reason why I should stop him.
But there’s no good reason. We’ve already crossed the line again.
Where did I really think this day would end up?
I brought a girl in. I let them both have their fun. And I had mine too. Then I gave her a ring and bought her a house and told them they were staying here with us.
I can say it’s all for Maisy. And that might still be true.
But this is the real me, isn’t it?
This is the reason why I never settled down. Why I let Charlotte leave me behind the day Maisy was born. Why I never came back here to the city where I was raised. Where my brothers still live.
It’s because I have always wanted more than I have.
I’m a selfish, greedy motherfucker and that’s never going to change.
Wald has my zipper down now. I’m still holding his cock through his jeans. He’s hard, and I’m hard, and there’s no way we’re not doing this.
He pulls my cock out and starts to jerk me off. Leaning his chest into my back. His lips kissing my neck.
“Come on,” he says.
I turn my head a little. I can feel his breath on the side of my cheek. His lips drag along the stubble of my jaw until he catches the corner of my mouth with his teeth.
Brooke is moaning in the other room and I turn my head back to watch. Huck is climbing up her stomach, kissing it as he unbuckles his belt and gets his pants open. He pulls his cock out and fists it, her looking up at him. He takes her hand and wraps it around his shaft and gives her a little push. A little encouragement.
Brooke begins to tug on him, their eyes still locked together.
Wald squeezes my dick, reminding me who I’m with right now.
I lean into the doorjamb. My right hand behind me, squeezing Wald’s dick as he gets his pants undone and pulls himself out. He hands it to me.
That’s the only way to describe that move. He takes my hand and places it over his cock and I automatically begin to mimic Brooke as she jerks Huck in the other room.
She’s got her mouth open now. Still looking up at my friend like he’s got all the answers.
Wald’s hands are on my hips. He presses forward until his cock is rubbing up against my ass. One hand slides down along the diagonal muscle of my waist and grabs my balls.
I suck in a breath of air and close my eyes. Holding in the moan that wants to escape.
But Brooke is giving Huck a sloppy blow job and I want to watch it.
So I open my eyes and see Huck staring back at me.
“Come here,” he whispers.

New Release – Convicted by Kristi Pelton

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Convicted
Author: Kristi Pelton
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2019

BLURB

Nothing in life has ever come easy for the boy from the other side of the tracks.  

A mother that left. A father that hit. A brother that protected.

They say everything happens for a reason.

Joss Hess has spent his entire life looking for that reason.

After nearly killing a man and barely avoiding prison, Joss finds himself sentenced to 18 months on Briscoe Ranch, where certain things are expected.

Hard work. Manners. Responsibility. Respect. Worst of all—anger management and restraint.

If he fails, Joss will be sent back to the state penitentiary to serve the remainder of his sentence.

One road block stands between Joss and his freedom: Ren Briscoe

Raised by ranchers, Ren Briscoe has been around men her entire life.

Home on summer vacation, she quickly realizes that Joss Hess is unlike any man she has ever encountered before.

She hates everything about him…his filthy mouth, arrogant attitude, the way he makes fun of her purity ring and her boyfriend. Mostly, she hates him because no matter how hard she fights it, Joss occupies her every thought. He may be the convict serving his sentence; but the real prisoner is Ren.

AUTHOR BIO

Just the fact that someone may be reading my ‘bio’ thrills me. What does one say in an author bio? Well, I LOVE to write! Sometimes characters talk to me in my head (in a non-psychotic way) and I have to get what they are saying out on paper! So, here we are!  J

I am a part-time juvenile probation officer and full-time wife…but I spend the majority of the time helping my two favorite, college-aged sons navigate through life and hopefully become the best humans they can be.

I am a huge fan of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Oregon Ducks and the Chicago Cubs! (I have a dog named Wrigley)

I’m terribly addicted to music—ALLLLL kinds and driving in the car with the sunroof open and radio turned up helps the creative juices flow.

I am deliciously addicted to queso and cupcakes; but even with that…I like to slowly kill my body with Crossfit. I’m annoyingly sarcastic.

People ask me ‘what has been your favorite book to write’—I would have to say my original series. (I think it sold 100 copies)  J   Someday…I may have to tweak them a bit because my heart was poured into those books—but they need help!  Slick was my Amazon best seller…but every one of them mean something to me.

In the end, I truly believe life is taken way too seriously by most…I say enjoy every moment, have an adult beverage and READ!! Cheers….
