Review – Fearless by Ivy Fox

58363364. sy475

Fearless; The Privileged of Pembroke #5 
(#2 within a duet, #5 within a series)

Publication Date: August 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Ménage/New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Ivy Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Staying up late to read Fearless was sooooo worth it!! The angst, the emotion, the steamy love triangle…this book has all the feels.

Fearless is exactly what a love triangle/ménage should tackle when it comes to the deep soulful emotions, twisted up feelings, and gut wrenching angst. So often a throuple jumps into a relationship and it’s happy from the get go. I understand throwing out reality and it’s a fiction world, but there is no relationship, no matter the amount of people that are in it that is super easy, so I love that Ivy tackled the heart of every relationship, especially one that involves multiple personalities.

Elle, Chad, and Saint all revolve around each other and have for years. Elle and Chad have been friends since kindergarten, while Chad and Saint developed a relationship later on. While it was originally Chad that was the glue between the three of them, not only being attracted to both, but also forcing the three of them to hang out, things changed and evolved, like teenage hormones do. Elle and Saint couldn’t stand one another sensing the other as competition for Chad’s affection, but as we come into Fearless that all comes to a head as they make Chad decide, choose one of them because they no longer want to share. When Chad can’t and won’t, Saint and Elle turn towards each other both in heartbreak and comfort and their once rivalry turns into something a lot more like love, but did they really make the right choice in cutting out part of their threesome?

It’s crazy how close hate and love walk that fine line, but Saint and Elle find out just how much they have in common while Chad slowly falls apart. Even while this couple grows together, which I LOVED how much Saint grew as a character, having a part of their original throuple gone gnaws at both of them and neither of them know how to get back what they had before everything fell apart.

Chad delves into some deep, dark places inside himself. He’s never been without Elle as his best friend. The growth he goes through, learning who Chad is without his sidekick, without someone to take care of, even without Saint to feel like he needs to correct all the time. Chad pulls out the version of himself that actually was buried deep and it’s one that the three of them needed more than they ever realized.

Elle goes through more ups and downs than anyone in this book, however, she’s probably the strongest person out of them to handle it and survive it, but she loves that she has support to lean on when the going gets tough. No matter what age she is, one of her guys was by her side to hold her hand or hold her tight, right when she needed it, but Elle was always strong enough to set things right and that is why this ménage works so well.

Lastly, Saint. Although, I would never put Saint last. He was pretty much everything in this book. His character growth was through the roof. He was sweet when needed, yet domineering when he had to be. He was caring and thoughtful, but his outside shell still screamed thug to those who didn’t know him. He was becoming the glue, that connecting middle piece, and Saint was everything Elle and Chad needed to complete their lives.

The intimate moments are crazy hot, no matter who is involved, but while they are also steamy, they also crack open emotional moments too. Nothing happens without purpose.

Since the Pembroke world is all interconnected the Grayson brothers are also dealing with their own chaos during this book, but Elle’s story is written in a way that it’s a complete standalone from her brothers. I will also say the same thing about Maya’s story. Everyone connects at some point in time, but don’t worry if you aren’t caught up yet, it will all make sense when you eventually read those books.

Review – What We May Be by Layla Reyne

58197197. sy475

What We May Be 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: August 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/MMF-Menage/Thriller/Crime-Mystery Romance

Author: Layla Reyne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I love cross-genre reading, especially cross-genre reading that is done well. What We May Be is a crime mystery, MMF romance that kept me on the edge of my seat and completely blew my mind on the twist of an ending. A total, “I did not see that coming”, flew out of my mouth which makes the best mystery books. Add in the sensual side of this already great plot and I was a total goner.

Trevor, Sean, and Charlotte live in a small, university town and while they all fell in love with one another back in college, Sean left shortly after devastating the other two. Trevor and Charlie remained best friends, but never took their relationship to the love affair it was without Sean in the mix. Sean now returns after a  decade gone to consult on a current murder case, but he only plans to stay in town for as long as the case takes. Trevor and Charlie are willing to have his help as long as it takes to catch the killer, but they can’t take the hurt of him leaving again. Lines are drawn, but slowly erased as things heat up both in the case and the past is revealed, but could it be too late to save what they could have had?

Every layer unfolds in the best thriller kind of way. Solving the case takes everyone’s talents and with a killer on the loose no one appears to be safe. I loved all the twisty bends and details added to make this suspenseful and emotional all at the same time.

Waaaaaay back in the day I was a mystery fanatic and this brought me back to a time when I devoured that genre, but those didn’t contain the romance aspect I am addicted to now. What We May Be contained both of those ingredients along with lots of tropes I really love in the reading world. This book is an excellent read, especially if you love reading thrilling books with spicy love scenes splashed in every so often.

Synopsis:

What we were…

Sean found love once, with his college roommate, Trevor, and Trevor’s best friend, Charlotte.
The missing piece, Sean made it possible for Trevor and Charlotte to find love too.
But then Sean left and took the love with him.

What we are…

Now an FBI agent, Sean is back in town, ten years later, to investigate a murder.
A case that pits him against his ex-lovers—Charlotte, a local detective, and Trevor, a literature professor sucked into the Shakespearean mystery.
Everyone guards their hearts, but before long, desire sparks anew the feelings that burned hot a decade ago.
That still burn true.

What we may be…

Love is within their grasp again, but as the killer escalates, it’s more than just their hearts and futures on the line.
Sean, Charlotte, and Trevor will need to work together to solve the case.
If they can’t, lives will be lost and pieces of their love gone for good.

Reluctant Lumberjack; Cocky Hero Club
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 1, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second Chance/Menage Romance

Author: Lynn Burke

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is a second chance at love story, with very real feelings attached to a MMF triangle.

Twenty years ago Nolan was at the center of two potential love interests. The crazy thing about it is those interests are between two best friends who happen to be Liam and Charlotte. Liam is very openly gay and Charlotte is on the plus size for girls. Both received their share of bullying in school and instantly took to each other in an instant kinship. They have been friends for over thirty years and nothing could get between them, well almost nothing except Nolan.

When they were high school seniors Nolan had a brief affair with Liam and also with Charlotte. Torn between the two and never wanting to choose between them or wanting them to break up a friendship he left, but after twenty years he’s back in town. Could they all make amends? Could they all be more?

When Nolan first returns, all three of them didn’t want to hurt the other and were willing to set aside a potential forever to give their friend a shot. It’s a sweet angst for them to eventually get what they want and a wonderful friendship at the heart of what they all desire.

I love the friendship between Liam and Charlotte and how selfless they both are to each other. The steamy times between the two men are hot, but then when all three of them come together it’s time to turn up the air conditioning because it’s FIRE!

Synopsis:

You met Nolan, Bridget’s handyman, in Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland’s smash hit BRITISH BEDMATE, and now it’s time for his HEA…

Twenty years ago, I loved a woman.

Twenty years ago, I also loved a man.

And twenty years ago, rather than choose, I abandoned them both.

Now, I’m living a lonely life, luckless in love and unwilling to confront the truth of what I left behind.

Captured in Ink; Montgomery Ink, Boulder #4.5 
(A standalone novella within a series)

Publication Date: January 26, 2021

Genre: Contemporary ménage romance

Author: Carrie Ann Ryan

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The best outcome in triads lately, at least for me, come down to the right mix of steamy and practicality. I love when the throuple takes their time to talk about what they are jumping into and the ramifications of it before people start getting hurt. Don’t get me wrong, I love lusty times as much as the next person, but I also appreciate the careful consideration and respect that goes into the thought process of this kind of relationship just like a couple would. The depth of the characters and meaning behind the story goes a long way towards wrapping around my heart when the author takes the time, plus, the steamy intimate moments are that much better!! So thank you Carrie Ann, Captured in Ink is the best of both worlds.

Ronin and Julia are already married when Ronin’s old flame comes back into his life. Once part of a triad before he was married Ronin knows they aren’t exactly easy and Julia is now the center of his world he doesn’t want to do anything that will screw that up. However, adding a third to their marriage is something they have been discussing and having Kincaid walk back into Ronin’s life opens more possibility to making that possibility a reality. First things first, Ronin and Kincaid have to work through their past heartache before they jump into anything that could ruin what Ronin and Julia have in their stable marriage. What could this mean for the triad if they travel down this path? Happiness or destruction?

EXCERPT

Jeremy pulled off his coat and slid his arms around Lydia, burying his nose in her neck. The strange sense of being perched on the edge of the world, obscured in white and disconnected from everything abated with each breath, the tick-tock of the mantel clock tracking a different kind of time.
“You’re wet!” Lydia squealed. “And stubbly!”
He didn’t stop. Her squirming turned to a tense freeze, then a slow melt in his arms. She stayed in place, he knew, because she sensed his need.
That was love. Real love.
Mike walked into Jeremy’s line of vision, carrying two open beers, one ready to hand to Jeremy. Ice-blue eyes met his, powerful and knowing. Something deeper than relief took over Jeremy’s cells as he stood there, Lydia touching him, Mike in the same frame, too.
His people. He had his people. That’s all he really needed.
“Hey,” Lydia said softly in his ear. “What’s wrong?”
Jeremy shook his head and just inhaled deeply. The change of plans was welcome. Christmas had come early to the small campground in Maine. He cradled Lydia’s face in his hands and kissed her, the taste of her tongue a tether, holding him in place, keeping him from tipping over the edge and into the pale, snowy abyss.
As the kiss deepened, he felt Mike’s hand on his shoulder, heard the cackle of Madge’s ribald comment, smelled the heady scent of burning wood.
And he was home.
Really home.

SYNOPSIS

Former heiress Ashe Pembroke can’t believe her life has turned into a freaking cliché, a modern day Cinderella living under the thumb of her ruthless stepmother, hated by her perfect stepsister, and treated as a servant in her own home. Then on her worst day ever, she meets Sebastian Bradford, a handsome prince charming if ever she’s seen one. Their chemistry is hot and instant. But imagine her surprise when he brings along his hunky spec ops lover, Elijah, who issues panty-melting orders in a deep voice like smooth cut velvet. Suddenly her life—and she—is turned upside down in ways she never, ever dreamed of!

The sex is ridiculous. Exciting and…well, just plain mindblowing. The two men are clearly madly in love with each other, and it’s rubbing off on her in all the best ways. They treat her like royalty, and cater to her every sexual fantasy while indulging in a few of their own. As she gets to know Sebastian and Elijah, she finally understands the power of true love, and begins to fight for her freedom. She desperately wants to accept the unique life they are offering her. But is it really possible to fall in love with more than one person at the same time, and together have a happily ever after?

Ever After
(A standalone)

Review Rating:This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1368-6.jpg

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An erotic take on the Cinderella story with a menage twist. Ashe, Elijah, and Sebastian bring this old fairytale to life in a new way.

Elijah and Bastian are long time lovers who occasionally participate in MMF, MFM or other orgy type bedroom activities, but their love for one another always remains steadfast. These two lovers have talked about adding another partner, if or when, they ever met someone that they both had a connection with, but neither have ever felt that emotional connection with any of the people they have invited into their bedroom, that is until they meet Ashe.

Ashe is living the Cinderella life, but her wicked stepmother and sister are even one step more wicked and straddling the abusive line. Meeting Elijah and Bastian is the only sunny spots on her dark days and keeping them a secret is the only way to any kind of happiness.

The three develop feelings both separately and together as a throuple, but sometimes things don’t always go your way, especially when you are basically a prince in the modern world.

This story has lots of twists and turns as the powers against them are quite dastardly and the throuple tries to stay ahead of the plot against them.

For as dirty as the scenes could get, I enjoyed that the emotional connection took longer to evolve, while keeping true to the whole Cinderella theme.

Review – Bound Together by K. Webster and Nikki Ash

54499169. sy475

Bound Together; Torn and Bound Duet #2 
(#2 of a duet)

by: K. Webster and Nikki Ash

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This duet deserves so many stars it is a shame that I have to stop at five. Bound Together is intensely passionate, full of sarcastic wit, loaded with emotional depth, and is a true must read.

First of all, Bound Together is hot, hot, hands down the hottest book I’ve read in 2020🔥. Secondly, the characters are full of so much depth, you will be able to connect with each and every one of them at some point on their journey to happiness. The overall message of no labels, while so very important in romantic love, also applies to other aspects of our lives. We love to place labels on everyone and put them in a box and Ashton (still one of my favorite characters) has the toughest time coming to terms with this concept. Don’t worry, he’s still seeing his therapist about it.

Torn Apart gives us the beginning stages of how Drew, Braydon, Mia, and Ashton all know one another, how their lives tie and weave together in a tangled knot of emotional mess. Bound Together begins right in the heart of this tangled knot, with Drew and Braydon on one end and Mia and Ashton on the other and the two sides trying to figure out how they can not only stay friends, but if there could be more.

There were so many heart swelling moments throughout this entire book. Not only were the four of them learning how to navigate their relationships, but they were also trying to steer their family, school, jobs, friends, basically everything that we all have to deal with on a daily basis and I think that is why this book was so emotional. It was so real, which touched my heart all the more.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster and Nikki Ash comes an angsty, new adult, why choose romance.

Oh, look, Ashton Carter destroyed his life—again.

Dad’s disappointed in me.
No shocker there.
But with them, it’s worse.
We’re torn apart and I’m responsible for the shredding.

Selfish.
Liar.
Unworthy.

I’ve made a mess of it all.
I’m not sure it’s even fixable.

Four broken hearts…
Anyone got any tape?

I may be self-destructive and have sucked them into my mess, destroying everyone’s lives in the process, but I’m sure I can fix it.

It’s gonna take focus and determination, both of which I’m sorely lacking.

I’m a spoiled boy who’s used to getting what I want.
In this case, I want them. All of them.
And I sure as hell won’t stop until I succeed.

Not until we’re bound together by…
Me.

Authors’ note: Bound Together is a full-length mature, new adult, why choose romance between friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, with a bit of taboo thrown in. This story contains MF/MFMM/MM scenes. It’s the epic conclusion in the Torn and Bound duet. Torn Apart must be read first.

Excerpt

“Truth or Dare?”

Scarlet and Tate both looked at Roman, who regarded them levelly, as if it were totally normal for an NSA budget analyst to propose that they play a sleepover game.

Scarlet realized she was tapping her foot again in time with the song. Part of her feared the earworm would become permanent, something she’d hear in her head forever. She sat up in the tub.

“You know what? I’m in. Why not? This whole thing is already ridiculous.”

“Dares might be a little hard, given our limited space,” Roman said. But Scarlet had an idea. A very, very dangerous idea. Maybe it was because her most vivid memory of Truth or Dare had been the time she played it at her friend Veronica’s house, on a night when Veronica’s twin brother, Viktor, was also having a sleepover, making it a coed sleepover.

“Tate, I dare you to take off your shirt,” Scarlet said. Both men looked at her, and the looks they gave her were intense…the looks predators gave their prey.

“You’re supposed to ask him ‘truth or dare’,” Roman said slowly. Scarlet let out a noisy sigh. “Tate, truth or dare?” “Truth,” he said with a smirk.

She rolled her eyes. “Okay, fine…have you been practicing your ménage sex?” Tate ran his tongue over his teeth. “I’ve had a few threesomes.”

“Two girls? Two boys? One of each?”

“Ah ah ah, you already asked your question.” Tate waggled his finger at her.

Oh, we’re going to play it like that, are we?” She shook her head in mock disgust, but her body was warm with burgeoning arousal, and it looked like, seemed like, the guys were also ready to play the game the sexy way. Not that she’d really doubted that. There had been this underlying sexual attraction between the three of them since the first day they met at headquarters.

“Roman,” Tate said. “Truth or dare?” “Dare.”

Tate looked back and forth between her and Roman. “I dare you to kiss Scarlet.” Yes! Yes yes yes.

Scarlet sat up, even as Roman slid off the side of the tub, kneeling on the floor and facing her, his hands braced as he leaned over.

Just before she closed her eyes, Scarlet’s gaze met Tate’s, and in that shared moment, she knew that this would only be the first kiss of the night.

Roman continued to be a surprise, one constant stream of contradictions. He never acted the way she expected, and this kiss was just one more example of that.

He was a fairly staid, serious man, but in this moment, he kissed her with a roughness, a passion, that quite simply took her breath away.

One minute his hands were braced on the side of the bathtub, the next they were tangled in her hair, pulling it just enough to tingle, then burn. He pressed her lips apart, their tongues stroking, tasting.

One of his hands released her hair and he gripped the back of her neck, keeping her lips against his when she started to pull back. Not because she wanted to stop but because she needed air. She was light-headed. And horny.

She was really fucking horny.

Roman gave no sign of being even close to finished. Until Tate cleared his throat.

“Am I going to get a chance to play?”

Read Kay’s Review: Necessary Pursuit

 

Excerpt:

Oscar had found the pack of cards in the kitchen’s junk drawer, which, as anyone with any sense knew, was where a pack of cards should be. Luca had sheepishly admitted to playing poker on phone apps, but he had never played with other people.

“Then you were playing the cards, not the table.” Oscar shuffled and set the deck on the table in front of Selene.

She tapped it with two fingers and Oscar arched a brow.

“I see you, Dr. Tanaka.”

“I try to replicate the power of the sun for a living.” Selene adjusted her glasses in a sexy librarian way. “You think I’m scared of taking risks?”

“It’s like watching sexy American TV,” Luca said, glancing back and forth between them.

“You think we’re sexy?” Selene asked. “I mean, me too. Obviously Oscar is sexy.”

Luca blushed. “Yes. I mean, you’re both… It’s…” He stared at the cards as Oscar dealt. “Remind me of the rules.”

“Straight poker. Five-card stud. Nothing wild. Keeping it simple this first round. Selene, deal out the chips.”

Selene gave them each ten sauce packets, also gathered from the junk drawer.

They glanced at their cards, discarded, took more, and placed their bets. To his surprise, Luca raised, then raised again.

“You must have a very good hand,” Selene said.

Luca glanced at each of them. “I build and design bombs for a living. Maybe I am simply taking a risk.”

Oscar whistled and slapped the table. “It’s going to be a game of who has the biggest nerd balls.” He pushed the rest of his hot sauce packets toward the center of the table. “Too bad for you two, that’s me.”

“Call,” Selene snapped.

Selene had a flush—all hearts. Appropriate.

Luca had three of a kind.

Oscar lay his cards out. “Full house, tens, and queens.”

Selene drummed her fingers on the table, anxious for a rematch. It appeared his nuclear scientist was competitive. “Deal.”

She won the next round, but he’d bet conservatively, losing only two hot sauce packets. On the third round, Oscar folded, losing only one in the process.

By the fourth hand, he still had most of the packets in his bank and was humming “The Gambler.”

“Deal,” Selene snapped. “Wait, I’ll deal. You’re cheating.”

“Don’t get too worked up, Tanaka. It’s just poker. Now, if we were playing spades…” Every game of spades between him and his siblings had ended in violence. Every. Single. One. Always followed up by one of them yelling, “I will never play cards with you again!”

Selene dealt, and Oscar’s smile had grown in time with his pile of hot sauce packets. He was waiting until Selene realized something she’d missed.

“I raise…” Selene trailed off as she finally noticed she was out of “money.”

“You have to fold?” Luca looked up from frowning at his cards.

“Socks,” Selene said.

“Strip poker.” Oscar sat up, staring across the table at her to try to read her mind. She glanced at Luca, then back to him, and shrugged slightly.

“What is strip poker?” Luca asked.

“You bet with your clothes. You lose and you have to take off something.”

Luca cleared his throat and tugged at the front of his shirt.

The bi guy who grew up in a nutso religious cult was probably wishing he was a thousand miles from here.

“Let’s not.” Oscar picked up some sauce packets, prepared to pass them to Selene.

“If she keeps losing…will she, will you, take off all your clothes?” Luca asked.

“Those are the rules,” Oscar said, grinning when he realized Luca wasn’t as averse to the idea as he’d assumed. “But you’d have to take off clothes as well.”

“If I lose.”

“Oh, you’re going to lose.” Oscar let the hot sauce packets spill from his hand back onto his pile.

“In or out, boys?” Selene asked.

Necessary Pursuit; Trinity Masters #12 
(Interconnected within a series)

by: Mari Carr and Lila Dubois

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

While this is book twelve in the Trinity Masters series, this was my first time visiting this particular world. While I’ve read both authors separately, I’ve had this writing duo on my TBR for awhile and now that I’ve finally had a chance to dive into their suspenseful menage series I’m kicking myself for waiting so long. Necessary Pursuit is full of smexy, steamy times, but it is also an international pursuit of catching and taking down all the bad guys.

It is almost scary how the authors whip up all of the intellectual knowledge to add into this book. Their search history must throw up all the red flags…but seriously… We have a physicist, a bomb engineer, and a computer hacker in this romance trinity. These three do joke throughout the story that they sound like a comic book evil group, or what they know would make them perfect super villains. The intelligence between them is so high, that it is funny and I’m glad that the authors use humor throughout the book to showcase it.

They also are very aware of the danger that surrounds them, but stop to appreciate the quiet moments and use that time to appreciate each other. I think because of their jobs, and also because they are on the run, they are very aware that life is short so they use their time to their advantage.

Mari and Lila do a wonderful job piecing together the three characters and showcasing their strengths. How they lean on one another and draw strength off each other when they each need it. That is so important in any multiple partner relationship so no one person is left out.

Overall, this was a great book, especially considering this was my first adventure into this Trinity world. I already have more on my TBR list to go back and catch up and I’m looking forward to it.

Synopsis:

Oscar has no desire to join one of the two secret societies issuing him invitations and he sure as hell isn’t interested in an arranged menage marriage. They say you can’t die of a broken heart, but he almost did.

Deadly circumstances throw sexy physicist, Selene, and a dangerous man with a price on his head in his path. Now he’ll do anything to keep them safe.

All they have to do is evade a serious threat from a religious cult, defuse a bomb, prevent a war between the Trinity Masters and the Masters’ Admiralty…oh…and stay alive.

New Release – Mountain Delights by Vanessa Vale

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Mountain Delights
Series: Wild Mountain Men #2
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Contemporary Western/Ménage Cowboys
Release Date: November 5, 2019

BLURB

If you liked Bridgewater County, you don’t want to miss this hot new series full of wild mountain men!

Hailey Taylor knows ski racing, and it’s paid off, because she’s a champion. The top of her game. Until she wiped out last season and blew out her knee. Her body may have recovered, but her head’s not back in the game. Meeting Lucas Mills doesn’t help, because the instant connection they share is just too good to ski away from. And when Lucas is game for getting his best friend in on their bed sport? Hailey’s ready to play.

Lucas is in love with Hailey. He’s all in, from the first moment he sees her. But he knows he’s not perfect, not with his PTSD from being deployed. He wants to make sure she’s got someone watching out for her, besides him. Because the one thing he’s learned between war and the murder of his sister, bad things can happen.

Cy Seaborn’s dad is a piece of sh—work. He walked away from his family when Cy was a kid, forcing his mom to work two jobs to make ends meet, to leave their house and live with his grandparents. He hasn’t heard or seen from him since. Until the man falsely admits to killing Erin Mills—his best friend’s sister. Cy has no idea why his father did it, and neither do the detectives working the case or the reporters who’ve been hounding him. He’s wary. Jaded.

All three are scarred. Damaged, outside and in. Lucas wants it all, but doesn’t think he’s enough. Cy’s not worthy of a woman like Hailey, tainted by his father’s bad blood. And Hailey? The only commitment she’s known is to her sport and all that’s gotten her is loneliness and injury. What if they let her fall? Can her heart recover?

And most of all…with a murderer roaming Cutthroat, will they survive?

Read Kay’s Review: Back In Bliss

Excerpt:

“Holy shit.” Logan practically beamed at the thing that looked like it could eat her. “Seth! Seth, get in here!”

He went to the door and yelled for Seth again.

Seth ran in, his eyes wide and his body covered only in a towel. A little towel. A tiny white towel that contrasted with his tan skin and had been wrapped over ridiculously muscled hips. He had those notches, the ones she’d always been sure some artist Photoshopped onto male models because no one could be that perfect. His dark hair was wet, curling above his shoulders. Moisture clung to his every muscle and, holy hell, he had a lot of them. They hid underneath his perfectly tailored suits.

Georgia forgot about the crazy-ass creature that had come straight out of some danger-in-the-wild documentary and watched the two gorgeous predators who had invaded her room.

She pulled the covers up to her neck, aware that she didn’t look anything like they did.

“Maurice.” Seth took a step forward. “Wow. How the hell long do moose live, man? It’s totally Maurice. You can see where Hiram tried to take him down. There’s a scar on his nose.”

Logan moved in, too, and she could see the easy way the two men related. For a moment she saw the kids they had been, friends forever. God, she’d never had a friend like that.

Logan opened the window and she heard a loud chuffing noise. “He kicked Hiram in the groin. It was a damn lucky thing the man already had three kids because I heard nothing worked the same after. Hey, boy. You remember me?”

Another huff and she was about to believe the thing knew how to communicate.

Seth looked over at her, his eyes glinting. “We don’t get a ton of moose around here. Maurice is a legend. The people of Bliss say that if he shows up at your place, you’re blessed. Meant to be here. He’s the welcoming committee.”

Logan laughed. “What no one will tell you is he’s a total snack whore. If you leave a Snickers bar on the porch, he will show up lickety-split. When Laura finally got comfy, I snuck some chocolate onto her porch so she would feel welcome.”

“I’m glad she stayed. I heard she got married,” Seth said.

Logan nodded. “Got a kid now. That’s why I’m here. Her husbands need some paternity leave. I heard it’s a girl.”

Their shared history was right there, a palpable thing between them. It was almost as though she could reach out and touch it, feel the warmth of it. Logan and Seth felt like a family.

What was she doing here?

Once again, like most of her life, she was the outsider. Even among her brothers, she’d felt it. Chase and Ben had each other. Mark and Dare had been tight. And she and Win had been so far apart in age that they couldn’t connect on a brother-sister level. She’d been alone. The only child whose mother wasn’t up to snuff. The only one without money when the tide had turned.

Logan looked down at her, his eyes softening. “Georgia, I’m sorry about last night. I didn’t mean a word of what I said. To either of you.”

She nodded, feeling awkward. They were here in her bedroom. It was a bit surreal. She turned her attention back to the moose.

“So it’s not something that’s going to attack?” She kept the blanket around her neck. Yeah, that was another way she was different. She wasn’t gorgeously perfect like them. She’d tried the whole diet thing, and she wasn’t cut out for it.

“Maurice is a sweetie, but I won’t lie. The first time I saw him, I peed my own damned pants and ran screaming for my mommas,” Logan said on a laugh. He reached a hand out, pressing it against the screen, his eyes misting like he was reaching for his past. “He won’t hurt you. He wants to say hello. And he probably smelled the bacon. Shit. My bacon.”

Logan turned and took off at a dead run for the kitchen.

Seth touched the screen, too. “Hey, Maurice. Thanks for the welcome.”

When he turned back to Georgia, he sported the sweetest smile. He jumped onto her bed, not a hint of self-consciousness on his face as he settled in beside her. “How did you sleep? My bed’s better, by the way. It’s huge. Built for three.”

“Good for you and whatever ménage you choose to invite. Could you go away so I can get dressed?” Last night seemed like a dream, and more than a little like a nightmare. God, what had she been thinking? Seth wanted her to tempt Logan into a ménage? He was insane. She was insane for not immediately walking out of the cabin and hoofing it to Malibu and the safety of Win’s minicastle where she could make like Rapunzel. She would barricade herself in and then keep her hair cut because she was done with men.

He smiled, an intimate thing that threatened to curl her toes. “I thought we settled that last night.”

She sighed and wished she was strong enough to not look at that towel, praying it would flop open and she would get a good view of what Seth had down under. Maybe it was small. Like tiny.

Did it matter? He was the sweetest man she’d ever met. He was kind and good. She wasn’t about to reject him because he had a small penis. It wasn’t like sex was all that awesome anyway.

Logan had a big penis. She’d felt it rubbing against her when he’d kissed her like there was no tomorrow. She thought about Logan’s penis a lot. More than a lot.

Nope. She wasn’t going to reject anyone based on penis size. She was going to reject them because she wasn’t about to get her heart broken again.

AUTHOR BIO

Marie Skye is your average career driven woman by day, and a hidden lover of all things dirty by night. Or, as she likes to say, professional by day; author whore by night.

Army brat, and now just a brat. She currently resides in Austin, TX where there really is a difference between breakfast burritos, and breakfast tacos, but she really doesn’t know what the difference is.

If it’s dark, and full of inappropriate material. She’s attracted to it. She prefers making her character’s work for their happy ever after, if they get one, and she has no problem making sure they endure every obstacle to try to get there. She’s known as not having a filter, and if she’s asked for an opinion, be prepared to get a response that’s most likely a mixture of sarcasm and bluntness.

She also has a soft side, and volunteers her time to support Elephants, as well as not attending any events that has elephants in their acts. She also loves sloths, and cute kittens, and prides herself on being able to quote the entire series of Friends.

Marie is the type of person that can be friends with anyone, but if you have cake, you’re pretty much her best friend.

Review – Back In Bliss by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak

46762635. sy475

Back in Bliss; Nights in Bliss #9 (Series)
by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak (Author)

This review is from: September 2, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

For fans of this series, people were waiting for Logan Green to finally get his HEA. I was one of those people as Logan became a character that was near and dear to my heart. I fell in love with Bliss almost a decade ago and I love rereading each book as it’s like revisiting an old friend.

Back from the beginning, Logan was the goofball, never wanted to grow up or take anything seriously, but also so super sweet you couldn’t help but like the character. In a town full of menage pairings, BDSM, killings that equated to large body counts, a nudist camp, alien encounters, and other strange events I’m sure I’m forgetting, Logan was the eternal optimist among the strange and bizarre. Known for his famous line of “Please, don’t tell my mom’s” when Logan usually did something dumb or found himself in trouble, that particular quote always put a smile right on my face.

Everything changed when that innocent trouble turned to brutalization and Logan was traumatized from the events that occured when he discovered the world wasn’t exactly nice and heroes don’t always spring to life like in the comic books he used to read. I think I can say it broke every readers heart to see Logan change from the lanky kid to the hardened man, but it was the necessary transformation that lead us to the Dom he became in Back In Bliss.

As much as I missed his goofy smiles and comedy relief, his hardcore Dom was uber sexy. Logan finally came into his own and like a lot of Bliss stories he wasn’t alone in finding romance.

Seth Stark is Logan’s best friend. Every summer Seth returned to Bliss to spend the summer with his grandfather, but more importantly he spent it with Logan. At some point in their youth they realized they wanted to find a woman and share her together. It was a thing that just was, like knowing you wanted children or not. However, things progressed a little differently than Seth had planned and when they didn’t attend college together or even spend the last few years of their lives together, Seth, being the planner that he was, began to move the chess pieces anyway and counted on Logan playing along. He wasn’t quite prepared for the changes in Logan or even for hurricane Georgia.

Georgia Dawson is in love two men. The Prince in a suit – Seth and the Beast in khaki’s – Logan. They both are different and both of them make her heart melt. The only problem, Seth wants forever and Logan only wants right now. These men were best friends, how could this ever work if she is only viewed as a play thing. If Seth has his way she’d be a china doll taken out and used on occasion, she’s been there, done that, she wants more from him. She also wants Logan for more than just a few days, but he doesn’t seem willing to give it. How can she bridge the gap between these two men who seem to need her? She’d give them anything if they only work together.

Georgia sets about to bring these two men together, Logan hopefully to heal his old wounds and Seth down to a level where he gets out of his own head once in awhile. She falls in love with the town, like we all have at one point or another. Lexi/Sophie does a great job through Georgia’s eyes introducing us to Bliss locals, hangouts, and customs. While through Logan’s tortured past memories we get glimpses of who he was and meet his friends/families and even new children living in Bliss as well.

Back In Bliss is a homecoming, a healing, and a sensual loving relationship between people who really care for one another. I’m so excited that Lexi is updating and bringing this world into her other ones and I can’t wait to see what happens next in one of my favorite towns.

Excerpt:

“Why don’t you smile?”

Chase shrugged. “I don’t know. Just how I was born. So where’s the dragon tattoo?”

Now she was the one smiling. Smart-mouthed bastard. Yeah, that was kind of sexy. “Hey, I was fucked up before it was cool. This is my fourth hair color this year. I was bright yellow two months ago, but someone called me Big Bird.”

His hand came up, barely touching her hair. “I like Cotton Candy better.”

“Yeah, don’t expect sweet.”

There it was, that hint of a smile that made her want more. “I think you could be very sweet if someone handled you the right way.”

“What if I don’t want to be handled?” The question came out on a flirty huff. God, was that really her voice? Was she flirting with this Dom like she could take him on?

The smile deepened, bringing out ridiculously sexy dimples. “Oh, you want to be handled, sweets.”

She kind of did. But she was still afraid. “I don’t think I could stand to be tied down.”

“How about a male hand on your body? Could you handle that? No ropes. No cuffs. But I would have to put hands on you, and not in that ‘I’m your dad’ way the other guy did.”

Honesty. Lots of honesty. “I don’t know how I would handle it. I know I didn’t like the thought of you servicing me. When you walked up, it felt like I was hiring you or something. I didn’t like that.”

He softly brought the pad of his index finger to brush her nose. “Picky sub.”

“I know what it feels like to be used. I don’t want to use you.”

A single muscular shoulder shrugged. “We all use people. It comes down to how we use them and whether or not they’re okay with being used. How are you going to get what you need if you don’t use someone?”

“It feels wrong.”

“Are you being honest with me about what you want? Is this a plot to trick me into marrying you?”

She rolled her eyes. “No.”

“Then we’re good, sub,” he promised. “You want to play a little in a safe environment with someone who’ll give you some space. I’m cool with that.”

“What do you get out of it?” She needed to know that there was an exchange.

“Ah, you’re a clean-slate girl. Well, sweetness, what I get out of it is the sight of what I think is going to be a spectacular ass. And when I turn in later, I’ll have something to masturbate to.”

She felt her eyes flare. Well, there was honesty for her. “I think you could find someone to help you out.”

He grimaced. “It would be harder than you think. Not a lot of women appreciate my sparkling personality. And besides, I think I’m going to be faithful for the night. I doubt you’ll let me have you, so I’ll pretend.”

The idea of him lying in bed, his hand on his cock while he thought about her, made her breath catch. And still she had to push. “Why me?”

He was silent for a moment, as though deciding how honest he should be. “Because you’re vibrant and different and you’ve muted your glow, but I think you could light up this room if you let go. I would be using you a little, too. I don’t do many good things. I’m basically selfish. Maybe I want to feel good about myself for once.”

She wasn’t giving him credit. She was judging him the way she expected to be judged, on the outside without a single thought to what was happening in his head. She’d looked at his gorgeous body and expected him to not have a soul, much less one as screwed over as hers.

“We could try. You could try to touch me.” She could handle that surely.

“Why don’t you touch me instead?”

New Release – Their Rebellious Bride by Vanessa Vale

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Their Rebellious Bride
Series: Return to Bridgewater #1
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2019

BLURB

Welcome back to the Wild Wild West in 1885 and the town of Bridgewater, where one cowboy—one husband—is never enough.

Young, beautiful and idealistic, Tennessee Bennett longs to marry, but only for love. Unfortunately, her father intends to marry her off to the first wealthy man who will have her in order to pay his gambling debts. When his plan takes a murderous turn, Tennessee finds herself alone and penniless on the streets.

Best friends James Carr and Jonah Wells have watched, and wanted Tennessee for two years. Gentleman to their bones, they have done the right thing, waiting for her to grow into a woman old enough to wake to their touch. But when he discovers Tennessee is in danger, James knows they’ve waited long enough. The rebellious woman will be claimed and awakened to passion by not one husband, but two.

The Bridgewater way of one woman marrying two husbands is unknown to Tennessee, but the heat between them is undeniable. She learns that her men will do anything to protect her. But protection—even passion—is not love, and Tennessee is not willing to give up the one thing she truly needs in a marriage.

Can the three of them discover what truly is at the heart of their marriage before it’s too late?

This standalone book has characters introduced in Their Brazen Bride, book 8 in the Bridgewater Series.

AUTHOR BIO

Marie Skye is your average career driven woman by day, and a hidden lover of all things dirty by night. Or, as she likes to say, professional by day; author whore by night.

Army brat, and now just a brat. She currently resides in Austin, TX where there really is a difference between breakfast burritos, and breakfast tacos, but she really doesn’t know what the difference is.

If it’s dark, and full of inappropriate material. She’s attracted to it. She prefers making her character’s work for their happy ever after, if they get one, and she has no problem making sure they endure every obstacle to try to get there. She’s known as not having a filter, and if she’s asked for an opinion, be prepared to get a response that’s most likely a mixture of sarcasm and bluntness.

She also has a soft side, and volunteers her time to support Elephants, as well as not attending any events that has elephants in their acts. She also loves sloths, and cute kittens, and prides herself on being able to quote the entire series of Friends.

Marie is the type of person that can be friends with anyone, but if you have cake, you’re pretty much her best friend.
