My wife.

I love saying those words.

She’s mine, and if she thinks I’m going to let her run without tracking her down and bringing her back to where she belongs–with me–then she’s about to be introduced to a new reality.

Because I’ll fight dirty to give her the happily ever after she deserves.

I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends.

Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99% of women on going home with me.

Do I sound like an asshole to you?

That’s because I am.

And guess what? It works for me just fine.

Or at least it did.

Until I met her.

Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.

Only one problem.

She wouldn’t tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.

Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy–the sweetest, rarest of all pussy–and I need it again.

So what’s an asshole to do?

I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.

And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

I did it. I married a billionaire.

My reasons are my own, but the last thing I expected was to feel owned.

I may have taken vows, but I’m still determined to be me.

Now his rules are taking over my world, but I’m not the kind of girl to just obey.

There’s only one problem: I might actually be falling for him…

I have no idea how this marriage is going to go, but holding onto a piece of myself while succumbing to his dirty pleasures is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.

Book Review – FIRE LICKED by Allison West



I enjoyed the characters of this story quite a bit, especially sexy, dominant Jules  –  but I felt the book lacked some substance.  It had a good premise, but unless they were going to get into solving the crime that occurred, that part seemed to just be off topic and more fluff or filler than anything.  I would have enjoyed it more if they had somehow been in on figuring out the mystery if it was going to be written into the book at all.

Lexa Mae has left her home in South Dakota after a break-up with her boyfriend to vacation and have some relaxing down time in New York City.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t turn out that way exactly because as soon as she checks into her hotel, chaos starts.

Jules Sinclair is drawn to the sexy woman that opens the hotel room with only a towel wrapped around her when he is ordering the evacuation of the hotel.  He takes her under his wing and gives her some clothes and a place to stay after she is left with nothing after an explosion at the hotel.  He also has to take her over his knee and teach her how to behave!

A HOT friends-to-lovers romance that inspires you to keep believing in forever even if you hit some speed bumps along the way!  Great characters!

Being up close and personal wreaks havoc on them both and they find it impossible to keep fighting this attraction.  Will they give in and enjoy each other or will Ethan keep pining after his ex and letting forever slip past again?

Book Review – RAVENSDALE’S DEFIANT CAPTIVE by Melanie Milburne



I enjoyed getting to know Holly & Julius!  Even though they each detested the other on sight, the chemistry that poured off of them when they were in the same room was electrifying!

Julius Ravensdale likes his privacy and likes to be left alone so he can bury himself in the work that he loves.  He agrees to bring Holly on board as a temporary helper to his housekeeper, but he’s not overly happy about it.

Holly Perez needs this job with Julius to avoid winding up somewhere she doesn’t want to go, but she comes in with a feisty, take no prisoners attitude because she’s not willing to roll over and be at any man’s beck and call.

Even though they rub each other the wrong way from the start, neither of them can seem to turn their back on the unusual attraction they are feeling at the same time.  Will they act on their desire?

I really enjoyed this book!  It’s a fast, easy read and Travis and Reilly are both genuinely nice people, so it’s a pleasure getting to know them.

Travis Christensen is the goalkeeper for the NHL Dallas Stars team.  He’s rich and handsome and doesn’t care what outside people think about him, so he’s living his life wild and free.  His coach and team aren’t happy with the media storm he creates though, so they bring in an image consultant to turn him around before they are forced to bench him.

Reilly Martin has never met a  project she couldn’t make squeaky clean, so she’s ready to get started and isn’t going to take let his attitude slow her down.

When they set eyes on each other and sparks fly, they know they’ve each met their match.  Will Reilly be able to get Travis straightened out enough for him to keep playing hockey?  And will Travis be able to convince Reilly that she’s not just a distraction to him?

She had a small amount of cash on her, and there was no telling how much longer she’d have access to her credit cards before they were put on hold. She called a cab company, then got out of the car, tossed the keys and cell phone beneath the seat—since her father could track that, as well—and manually locked the door.

Within minutes, a taxi pulled up to where Samantha was waiting. The driver was a friendly young girl in her early twenties, and she was counting on the other woman to find her just the right place to celebrate her first night of freedom. A place where no one knew her or would judge her or would expect her to be the good girl she’d always been.

“My name is Angie.” The girl glanced over her shoulder to the backseat with a friendly smile. “Where can I take you tonight?”

“To your favorite bar in the Chicago area.”

Angie’s brows rose in surprise as she took in Samantha’s designer purse and high-end attire. “Are you sure about that? My favorite bar is a far cry from The Aviary,” she said of the upscale lounge where the wealthy went to mingle and be seen. “The place I hang out at is a bit on the…unrefined side,” she said with a laugh.

Samantha grinned. “That’s exactly what I’m counting on.”

Lots of excitement in this book.  We know from the beginning who the bad guys is, but there is a lot of suspense as we try to figure out if they are going to be able to get away from him or not.

Nash Adamson is a former Navy SEAL, who is trying to overcome some personal loss in his life when he gets a call from his high school girlfriend’s mother asking him for help.  Maisey has evidently gotten mixed up with a major drug lord and is in danger.

Maisey Blake fell for Vincente Rodriguez’s lines and thought he was her long awaited Prince Charming come to claim her at last.  Little did she know that he was already married when he married her after finding out she was pregnant with the child he is desperate for.

Blog Tour / Book Review – SURRENDER MY LOVE – Melissa Foster


4 1/2 STARS!

It should really be unbelievable when you read these stories where they are magically in love within a few days or a few weeks, but *sigh* it just works with some people.  Leesa & Cole are just magic.  They light up a room when they are around each other.  Such a cute couple.

Annalise Avalon’s world fell apart a few months ago, and she needed to get away and recoup herself after all the investigation is over, so she goes to visit her friend Tegan in Peaceful Harbor.  She quickly meets Cole and is drawn to him immediately even though she knows she shouldn’t be.

Cole Braden is a top orthopedic surgeon in his hometown and is surrounded by his extended family.  He is taken with Leesa as soon as he sets eyes on her and doesn’t want to take any excuses as to why she can’t go on a date with him.

Will Cole be able to help Leesa put her life back together and convince her that it should be there with him, or will she still go home and take the new job being offered to her in Baltimore?

Surrender My Love
The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #2:

Love in Bloom: The Bradens #14
By: Melissa Foster

Releasing January 13, 2016
World Literary Press


Annalise “Leesa” Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush—and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.

A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

Blog Tour / Book Review – TO ONE HUNDRED – Melissa Blue


3 1/2 STARS!

I enjoyed getting to know Eva & Grady and all of their supporting characters, but I felt like the book ended too soon.  We got the back story all aired out finally, and then it was just over.  Maybe they’ll continue in another book?

Eva March met a guy online and really connected with him.  They talked for 4 months, then before they could arrange to meet, life did it for them!

Grady Addison can’t believe that the woman he has been pouring his heart out to for months is now a student in his classroom.  He doesn’t date students!  What is he going to do?

Will they be able to resist each other after the connection they have had online?

Title: To One Hundred
Series: #DirtySexyGeeks #1
Author: Melissa Blue
Genre: Adult Romance
Published: January 7, 2016
When they met online they were equals…Then she walks into his classroom.

For four months Eva March shared almost every secret with a handsome stranger. It was easy when she didn’t have to meet his gaze in real life. The online flirtation was fun. She could be a strong, put-together woman without a sordid past. Most importantly, he’d never know the truth.

Grady Addison takes his job as a professor seriously. He doesn’t sleep with co-eds, much less his students. Eva doesn’t even fit his leggy, peppy blonde requirements, but he can’t walk away now. He’s spent too much time fantasizing about her, her smile and the way her eyes darken when she thinks of her past.

And her past is a problem. The secrets she hasn’t yet told him could end his career and for Eva, her life could just come crashing down…again.


“ If you are not into Geeks, after reading ‘To One Hundred’ you will be a Geek lover for sure. You will discover Geeks make great lovers. Waiting for the next one in this series!!!”-Goodreads Reviewer

“This was an interesting story! I am not a “geek” and I don’t know anything about the “geek”world, so this was sort of an inside look into the “geek world”-The Smutbrarians 

“This book was fun and super hot!! I can’t wait to see what else comes from this series, since it seems to focus on the 4 main men in the book! I’ll definitely be buying the next in the series!!” -Alpha Book Club

One night, they could have one night where the complications didn’t matter. Right? Didn’t mean there would be more. For months she’d wanted to know Grady, in the flesh. Would they still spark, laugh and have an easy comfort between them? The consequences seemed so far away when she couched their circumstances in that light.
Maybe the inner debate was all lies to appease her conscience, but Eva grabbed her purse and followed him out of the coffee shop.
He revved his bike’s engine when she stepped out onto the sidewalk. She shook her head and walked over to him. “Let’s just announce to the world I’m leaving with you.”
Grady’s eyes were still guarded but he smirked. “Didn’t think you’d see me.”
He’d parked right outside the shop. She couldn’t have missed him. “Where are we going?”
His hands tightened against the bar handles. “To meet my brother Wade.”
Her heart shot into her throat. “What?”
His smirk somehow deepened. “You want the truth about him. I’ll let him tell you.”
She stuffed her hands into the back pockets of her shorts, trying to appear relaxed even though a storm of butterflies fluttered in her stomach. “What exactly will that do?”
The smirk dropped away from his lopsided smile. “It’ll get you on my bike, your arms and legs wrapped around me. Outside of that, we’ll play it by ear.”
All he needed was a James Dean leather jacket to perfect the bad boy statement. Then again, maybe not. He was lethal enough without one. “So you’re done being the kind, understanding nice guy?”
His smile transformed into a grin that promised a multitude of wicked things. Yeah. No jacket necessary. “You have to admit, it was wearing thin.”
Grady offered her the helmet. Taking it spelled trouble in all languages. Jumping on a motorcycle with a guy who wore a smile that had no good intentions behind it…Yeah. But the facts were different with him. He wasn’t just her professor. He didn’t prey on her vulnerabilities. And most importantly, he hadn’t made her feel broken once.
Eva took the helmet, fastened it and then climbed onto the back of the bike. She wrapped her arms around his chest. One could say she copped a feel as she ran her hands over his stomach. The soft cotton shirt hid taut muscles, but now she could feel every ridge. His stomach jerked beneath her hands.
“Eva?” he asked, his voice low and tight.
She leaned forward until her mouth was at his neck. “Yeah?”
He revved the engine again. “You might want to hold on really tight.”
She locked her fingers together. “I know.”
