Blog Tour – The Architect by Nikki Sloane

 

He’s drafting plans to seduce you.

 

The Architect by Nikki Sloane is now live!

On the surface, my new boyfriend is a stiff, buttoned-up architect. He plans every detail of his life while carefully maintaining the walls he’s built around his heart. But when the biggest project of his career pulls him away, Clay’s solution is both temporary and unconventional. It even comes with a name–Travis.

This handsome stranger is sweet and thoughtful. He’s only meant to be a stand-in, to fulfill my sexual needs under Clay’s watchful direction, yet these two men couldn’t be more different. The one thing they share? Well, I guess that would be me.

One gets off on my pain, the other on my pleasure, and it awakens a desire none of us knew existed. But it can’t last.

Eventually I’ll have to choose.

And it’s going to destroy us all.

New Release – Out of the Wild by Jessica Walker

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Out of the Wild
Author: Jessica Walker
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 29, 2020
BLURB

The rules say we can’t touch each other, but rules were made to be broken.

It’s been seven years since our plane crash landed. What started as 47 passengers has quickly dwindled to 32, and now that Christa is pregnant we risk losing her too.
If she had followed the rules none of this would have happened. Men and women are not to be alone together, prohibited to touch and sex is the ultimate taboo. I followed the rules, why couldn’t she?

I am determined to save her, even if it means leaving camp in pursuit of civilization. Even if it means travelling with Cade, the only man I’ve ever been tempted by.

The climate I can endure, the terrain, survivable, but the rules? They are one forbidden touch from being broken forever.

EXCERPT

It has been years since the crash, and still I wake every morning with the jarring sense of falling. Christa places her palm on my back for reassurance and I roll over to face her. It’s not yet morning and I can barely make out her features in the moonlight. Her face is fuller and so is her abdomen, but we haven’t said anything to the council yet.
“Go back to sleep Lena,” she whispers, and I flip back to my side, used to following her directions.
I am mad at her and worried for her, but mostly I am determined to save her. It’s the not knowing how that keeps me awake.
There is a rustling in the shelter across the way, and I suspect that Cade is unable to sleep tonight too. I think about crawling out from the familiarity and warmth of the space I share with Christa and clicking my tongue against the roof of my mouth three times. It’s the code we use when the four of us want to sneak out of camp. Only Christa is too tired now and Tanner never leaves her unless Cade or I are there to protect her.
Maybe Cade can hear me thinking because I watch as his silhouette moves from the shelter and down toward the water. Christa groans as I pull away from her and follow him. When I reach the water’s edge I have to skip over three smaller rocks to reach the large curved boulder that rises above the rest. I sit close to Cade so the two of us can whisper. We can’t risk waking any of the others. There are strict rules about men and women being alone together.
Rules that seemed silly—until Christa got sick.
“You shouldn’t be here,” he says, keeping his eyes on the smooth flat surface of the water in front of us.
I don’t care that he wants me to leave. I can’t bear the thought of lying still until the sun rises. So instead, I say what we both know.
“She’s getting noticeably bigger.”
I don’t have to look at Cade to know that his brows are pinched together, and his mouth has formed a tense, firm line. He gets quiet when he can’t quite work something out. Usually I wait him out, but this time I can’t because I know that like me, he doesn’t know where to start.
I trace my hands along the rough edges of the boulder. Below, the water has rubbed it smooth, but on top where we sit, it has the texture of gesso, layered heavily with a palette knife.  The uninvited memory of things from before is unsettling. I wrap my arms around my knees, so as not to feel it.
“They never should have—”
“But they did,” I say, cutting him off.
Cade inches away from me on the rock, as if being too close to me is dangerous. I don’t take it personally, even though just a few weeks ago his hand brushed mine in this very spot and neither of us pulled away.

Review – Titan by Shantel Tessier

44415669. sy475

Titan; Dark Kings #1 
(An interconnected series)

by: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A sinful read that will hit all of your wicked cravings. Not for the faint of heart, so if mafia, dark, and very steamy romance isn’t for you then I’ll keep Titan all for myself.

Emilee and Titan grew up together, but weren’t necessarily friends. Titan had feelings for her for numerous years, but during school Emilee actually belonged to Bones, Titan’s best friend, and even though what they had was never a true relationship, it was an ownership which made her untouchable to anyone else. It’s been a few years and Emilee and Bones have been over since she left town, but now she’s back and this time Titan is ready to make his claim.

Emilee left Vegas and everything about it; friends, family, and hookups years ago. When her father suddenly dies and her mother’s illness requires her to return the last thing she wanted to do was to run into men she knew from school, the Dark Kings. When her life begins to spiral and she has no one left to turn to, except the one man who wants everything from her.

The Dark Kings don’t hesitate to kill, they are possessive, so don’t dare double cross them. They have worked hard for their kingdom, but every king eventually needs their queen to help them run it all.

Titan is full of very smexy moments and lots of twists and turns. I found it helpful to have read Code of Silence prior to reading Titan. It introduces you to the Dark Kings and the world they grew up in, along with Emilee and her friends which are also a huge part of this Kingdom world. The Kings are very close friends, more like brothers, which you get a peek into each ones history and know more intimately as each book continues. I know I’m looking forward to this series continuing.

Synopsis:

TITAN
I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.
A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.
I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.
I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.
Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.
Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.
And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.

EMILEE
When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.
But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.
Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.
One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.
I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.
“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.
I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.
He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.
What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.
But was it for nothing?

Review – Hot and Sexy by Erika Wilde

Book cover for Hot and Sexy (Some Like it Hot Book 1) by Erika Wilde

Hot and Sexy; Some Like It Hot #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Erika Wilde

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Another steamy, smexy hit!! If I’m looking for a well crafted steamy read I know I can always count on Erika Wilde for that story.

Jo has been working alongside her brothers for the past two years as a PI. She takes the occasional bounty hunter case which helps fund their office and that is what lands her in front of Dean Colter who claims he is the wrong man. That isn’t something she has heard before, not. Although, on their trip back things begin adding up that places enough doubt that Jo does begin to wonder if Dean isn’t guilty of the crime and that is when the adventure really begins.

Dean hasn’t had a vacation for several years and just when he was ready to leave for a long over trip, he’s handcuffed and put into the back of an SUV. Not exactly the trip he was expecting, but with the beautiful woman escorting him up front, he decides to make the most of his time and win her over.

Hot and Sexy is both a smexy good time and good mystery to solve.

Synopsis:

She has him right where she wants him…

Joelle Sommers is very good at her job as a PI and bail recovery agent, but she’s definitely out of her element when she arrests sexy businessman Dean Colter in a case of mistaken identity. Because unlike her usual fugitives, Dean is cooperative, accommodating, and hot as sin . . . and not at all guilty as charged.

But this bad boy isn’t so innocent either, and she finds it increasingly hard to resist his seductive charm, and their mutual attraction.

After years of working himself to the point of having no life outside the office, Dean Colter is in the mood for an adventure. But being kidnapped by a gorgeous bounty hunter—one he discovers is into bondage, to boot—isn’t exactly what he had in mind. Still, it doesn’t take long for him to realize that being a willing captive has its advantages.

Jo might be the one with the handcuffs, but Dean’s about to discover the key to unleashing the passionate, uninhibited woman beneath the tough, stubborn facade. And when he does, all bets are off.

A sizzling addition to Blakey’s Gift series that is dirty and flirty, delicious and decadent all rolled into a hot new read.

Review – So , That Got Weird by Amelia Kingston

48424838. sy475

So, That Got Weird; So Far, So Good #1 (Series)
by Amelia Kingston (Author)

This review is from: December 22, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

So, That Got Weird checked off all of my reading wish list requests. It is full of witty moments, has a ton of heart, and contains lots of smexy time to steam up your reading device or burn your book pages through the night.

While the central theme is having football jock Austin Jacobs help an intellectually awkward Elizabeth Wilde (I love the ironic name btw) out of her socially awkward shell and into her sexual goddessness, the underlying theme is really intimacy.

Both Austin and Elizabeth suffer in their own ways from this seemingly harmless, but also very emotionally charged, word. Intimacy seems like a romantic concept, but it bleeds into everyday life. Friendship, family, acquaintances, basically everyone you meet. At what level do you establish a level of intimacy – or allow someone into the depth of your personal life – and how much do you allow someone the reigns to the emotional harm they can do to you with that knowledge? With that word, both Austin and Elizabeth have struggled with intimacy in their personal life.

Austin is an orphan. He has spent a lot of time in the foster system, but thankfully not in any harmful or physically damaging homes. All Austin has ever wanted was to be to liked, to be wanted, to be loved. On the surface he’s a pretty package that wears a mask. He’ll be whatever you want him to be so he’s adaptable to his environment. People like him and that is something Elizabeth craves, fitting in. However, Austin keeps people at a distance. He never lets people in, he doesn’t date, and he doesn’t do intimacy. That is until somehow Elizabeth gets through his gates of steel.

Elizabeth has never felt normal, not even within her own family. She’s perfected invisibility, but underneath her cool exterior is a fiery woman with a big brain that has trouble shutting off. Her anxiety makes her awk-weird and her monetary status makes her seem aloof, but her life is anything but full and rich. She’d do just about anything to feel normal, even hire a tutor. She’s never had a boyfriend, she’s never really had any friends, frankly she doesn’t really know how to people. When she decides to approach Austin to tutor her in sex so that she can at least get over feeling awkward while on a date, she does her homework in picking the best man for the job. No intimacy involved, just statistics.

While Austin should feel shocked to get propositioned, he’s intrigued. Elizabeth isn’t like other girls and the longer he spends with her the more he’s drawn to what hides under her baggy clothes and cool exterior. He knows she’s not looking for long term just like he’s not looking for a girlfriend. He knows nothing last forever, so this arrangement is perfect, until he suddenly realizes she’s everything he never knew he needed.

Both Elizabeth and Austin are broken, but piece by broken piece they help heal and repair the damage that has been done to them by others and without effort they really help one another. So, That Got Weird, while a steamy romance is also quite beautiful – a real caterpillar to butterfly transformation story. I love ending my year with such a fantastic book!!

Blurb:
I might still carry my V-card, but I know exactly what I want in a man. Smart, charming and oh-so-skilled. Too bad I haven’t found him yet.

But maybe he’s found me. .

Because when my charming, laid-back, next-door neighbor discovers a secret list I keep, he volunteers to work through every single item on it. .

Including the last one — at the end, we walk away and stay friends. .

I say yes to his offer, and that’s when I discover another side to him. .

A side I adore. A side I crave. He’s commanding, intense, and everything I’ve ever wanted. .

But as we check things off one by one, I find myself breaking the most important rule of all. And I have no idea what it will do to my heart.

Excerpt:
I broke the hold he had on my hip. I spun around and took a few steps backward to the kitchen counter, feeling naughty, daring.

From a few feet away, I stared at my friend with new eyes, drinking in the cut of his jaw, the fire in his eyes, the expanse of his hard chest.

My eyes roamed over him. He was fully dressed, but fully revealed too. The outline of his arousal was visible through his pants. Thick and firm.

My mouth watered as I stared at the shape of it.

But tonight I wanted something else.

Something for me.

I didn’t need to start at the beginning of my list. The first three items set the tone. I’d cross them off as I worked through the others.

I knew where to start.

“Okay, then. Now that we’ve tackled the rules of engagement, I’d like to try number four, please.”

Read Kay’s Review: Iron Crowne

Excerpt

“Why should I sleep with you?” I cross-examined the witness. It was the only way to manage Byron.

He considered his cup as if committing to his goal, then studied the way my finger tapped the counter as if choosing a strategy, then pondered my face as he decided on his tactic.

“Because you’re wet already,” he said with a deep knowledge of what aroused women looked like. “Because you want what I can give you. Your head hasn’t even acknowledged it, but your body knows.”

“That’s—” I was going to end in a denial, but my nipples were hard. “—not relevant. You and I don’t make sense.”

“That’s correct.” He gulped tea. I left my cup on the counter, refusing the challenge. “We are a disaster. You despise me too much to want a relationship and just enough to turn you on. And from what I can tell, you don’t want to get involved enough to force an ethical quandary. So, if you agree in principal, I have a proposal.”

Agreeing in principle meant revealing how badly my body ached for him.

Disagreeing meant never satisfying that ache.

“I agree in principal.”

“My proposal is one night. One full night…”

I could commit to that, and I was about to when he continued.

“…where I own your body.”

“Wait.”

“You let me own you when we fuck. You come when I say. You obey me without hesitating. That’s what you want and you know it.”

My cheeks prickled, radiating the heat of my shame.

“No, then.” I pushed my cup away. “It’s never been like that. I’ve had three long relationships and a couple of flings but never—”

“—really enjoyed it.”

It was all lies… even when he spoke the truth, he lied.

 

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

A heated enemies-to-lovers novel. Whew! This book will keep you warm with the cold nights rolling in! Iron Crowne is well written and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Who will come out victor in this war on love? You will burn through the pages to find out.

Olivia Monroe is hardworking, follows the rules and has never lost a case, ever.

Both Olivia and Byron play to win. When they agreed to a brief affair, neither one anticipated losing. The rules were simple, yet also very complicated. Feelings have a way of doing that even when you agreed not to fall in love.

Review – Overnight Service by Lauren Blakely

Overnight Service; Always Satisfied #4 (Series)
by Lauren Blakely (Author)

This review is from: October 24, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Brilliant, witty, and full of steamy fire, this is classic Lauren Blakely that was unputadownable!!

Josh Summers is full of swagger and possesses a ton of sexy confidence that makes him a yummy, sexy, suit wearing fiction boyfriend. As one of New York’s top sports agents he needs lots of confidence for his clients, but he also keeps that rolling over into his personal life, he oozes a smooth talking sinner. It’s probably one of the reasons Haven Delilah has trouble keeping away from him. Who wouldn’t?

Haven is competitive, she’s been a gold medalist after all, but now she’s Josh’s competition and he loves to win. She occupies his headspace way too much, for lots of reasons, but winning when she offers up a bet is just one of them. He wants to win at all things when it comes to her, he just isn’t sure some of them are healthy obsessions.

Can he have the job and keep her too? Perhaps if there is lots of hate sex involved.

Overnight Service is fun, super steamy, and a standalone in this great series.

This review is from: January 17, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

This is a collection of steamy, contemporary stories that revolve around love and the song that inspired it. Personally I felt that some songs were more up front with their musically titled theme than others, but maybe it could have also been that I knew some songs better than others. Regardless, like any anthology I was drawn to certain stories more than others, but overall, the anthology holds something for everyone and for the price you can’t go wrong.

MixTape is packed with excellent authors and lots of steamy romance. Here are just a few of my personal favorites:

“Say Yes”-Elle Kennedy

Have you ever attended a wedding hoping for a quick hookup? Well, Emilia was away for a weekend wedding and she was definitely swiping left and right. Her perfect match, a man named Dirk (really Dirk?) Well, he was the perfect walking wet panty dream, which was perfect for her one night stand. The only snag in her perfect plan was when the bride introduces her (the next morning) to the groom, who just so happens to be none-other than Dirk (yeah, she knew that name spelled trouble).

“Say It First” Nikki Sloane

When Anna Douglas made it big in Hollywood, she didn’t really stay connected to people back home. It wasn’t that she was a snob, it was that she wasn’t connected before she made it big, so when a friend request popped up from Jamie Campbell, one of the most popular guys from high school, she couldn’t resist accepting. Months and conversations later they have become each other’s best friend, but could it be more? With hectic schedules and never declaring anything but friendship is it time to move beyond the chat room?

There are several others that were delicious and full of extra steam and I hope you pick up this anthology for yourself so you can read each and every story to discover just how much fun reading MixTape was.
