You are never too old to find yourself...
No Strings Attached (Pink Bean Series Book 1) - Harper Bliss

No Strings Attached (Pink Bean Series Book 1) - Harper Bliss 

 

I really thought this was interesting.  I don't read a ton of Lesbian fiction.  I just don't come across a lot of it, but I really enjoyed this one.  We have a non-transitional heroine in the fact that the she's 44, recently divorced with two kids, and just realizing (or should I say acknowledging) that she's attracted to women. 

 

She meets a woman who, despite a less than stellar first impression, is someone she's attracted to.  This woman, Robin, tells our heroine, Micky, that she's looking for a no strings attached affair and Micky is willing to go along with that.  But things get more complicated that either one of them bargained for.

 

Even though we have a lot of differences, I found Micky to be really relatable.  I was rooting for her.  It could not have been easy to come out at her age and tell her family that she had partly been living a lie.  Robin's character grew on me.  I didn't much like her in the beginning but by then end, I thought that she was the perfect partner for Micky.

 

The book centers on a coffee shop called the Pink Bean, and I loved those secondary characters that came along with it: Amber, Micky's best friend; Josephine, the young barista;  and Cheryl and Kristin the couple who owns the Pink Bean.  They along with Micky's family really helped round out the story.

 

Overall, I like the book.  It was sweet, hot, and memorable.  I definitely will continue on with the series.  I was able to get this one on audio through my library and the phenomenal Angela Dawe was narrating so that was an extra special treat.

Review: Midnight Target by Elle Kennedy
Midnight Target (A Killer Instincts Novel) - Elle Kennedy

http://witandsin.blogspot.com/2017/04/review-midnight-target-by-elle-kennedy.html

 

Midnight Target hits the ground running and never lets up. Emotions are high, sexual tension runs hot, and the action is top-notch. As the final book in the Killer Instincts series, the stakes are bigger than ever with the full force of Jim’s mercenaries and Noelle’s chameleons all out for blood when Jim is critically wounded. Elle Kennedy definitely knows how to send her badass heroes and heroines off in style, and this is one hell of a satisfying end to the series with almost all of our favorite characters getting a moment or two to shine and not one, but two sexy-as-sin romances taking center stage.

Cate Morgan grew up in a gilded cage, a prisoner of her maniac grandfather until she was found by her father, Jim. Cate’s cut from the same cloth as her father. She’s a thrill-seeker, someone who – even as a teenager – knew she wasn’t cut out for a normal life. But Jim wants her wrapped in cotton, and his overbearing protectiveness pushed her away. Now a photojournalist on assignment in South America, Cate’s life takes a turn when she snaps a photo of a supposedly dead drug dealer. With killers hot on her heels, she has no choice but to call her father. And when Jim’s wounded rescuing her, Cate is forced to work with David “Ash” Ashton – the one man she wants nothing to do with. Ash broke her heart, and nothing makes her madder than the fact that she’s still attracted to him.

Ash has had it bad for Cate for years, but he knows he can never have her. Their difference in ages and the fact that he’d never do anything to lose the respect of Jim, the man who gave him a chance, a job, and a home, makes her off-limits. But with blood running hot and danger around every corner, the sexual tension between them is about to boil over. Cate and Ash are two people clearly meant to be together, and I loved the flashbacks that showed their history, built up the tension, and had me rooting for these two to get together. It isn’t easy for them. Ash’s loyalty to Jim means he tries to push Cate away, and he hurts her in the process. But readers can see how completely head over heels he is for her, and the fact that he’s so totally in love with her just melted my heart. They come into their own both as individuals and as a couple in Midnight Target and their growth is fantastic to watch.

As previously mentioned, there’s a second romance in this book and it’s the one I’ve been waiting for: Liam Macgregor and Sullivan Port. For the past few books Ms. Kennedy has been ramping up the tension between these two smokin’ hot mercs and I’ve been dying for their story. It’s been two years since Liam and Sully last saw each other and when they reconnect…holy smokes. Attraction, longing, anger, fear, and love are all intertwined and bottled up in each of the men. Their confrontations are insanely hot and you could power a whole village with the emotional charge from their scenes. Every minute Ms. Kennedy made us wait for their love story was absolutely worth it because Liam and Sully rocked. The angst, raw desire, and pure want between them packs one heck of a punch and I stayed up way too late reading Midnight Target because I could not put the book down until Liam and Sully got their happily ever after. Nobody can mix passion, anger, and love together quite like Elle Kennedy, and Liam and Sully are perfect examples of her talent.

I could spend pages going on about Liam and Sully because they rank right up there with Jim and Noelle when it comes to favorite couples of mine, but it’d be remiss of me not to mention the action outside the two romances. The mission is personal this time for all the characters and the upped stakes definitely kept me engaged. Ms. Kennedy isn’t afraid to make things dark and gritty, and with a drug lord targeting first Cate, then the entire team, the suspense is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. The world these mercs and assassins live in is bloody and grim, but it makes the characters and romances shine all the brighter in contrast.

Midnight Target has raw passion, high stakes, boundless energy, and two powerful love stories. It’s a stellar read fans old and new of the Killer Instincts series are sure to enjoy. Every obstacle the protagonists face is worth it when there’s an ending as satisfying as the one in this book. I loved Midnight Target and I cannot wait to read it again and again!

Book review : Fast connection
Fast Connection - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

March 29- 30


After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan--the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.

When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.

He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.

Review : Dominic has left the military and is discovery is Bisexuality he goes on Grinder and meets Luke they have sex and then mostly Luke kicks him out but Luke is in need of more of Dominic and they hook up again Luke has two Kids and his son is friends with Dominic sister which Luke finds out and then ghosts Dominic until Dominic goes over to his house and talks to Luke so they start a friends with Benifits thing until Dominic has a date with someone and Luke isn't happy they have sex and Luke tells him he wants to date him. Dominic's family is having money problems and Dominic offers his money to his family but his father only takes it if he owns half of the shop . Dominic wants to be an Emt and Luke tells him to go for it his family finds out he's Bi on thanksgiving because some douche was spreading rumors . when Micha and Adrianna go missing to a convection Luke and Dominic get in a big fight and they barely speak after they find them . Luke gets in a fistfight with Dominic's dad and Luke and Dominic break up on Christmas Dominic's family paid for EMT classes . Luke goes to Dominic's dad and offers to help with the landscaping for the shop and when Dominic finds out they talk make up and have sex . The ending was cute there was a big party for Dominics birthday I loved this book so cute and sexy .
Quotes:
Garrett: Who would want you to serve them food? Dominic: Shut the fuck up. I didn’t text you for examples of your stunning sarcasm and subzero personality. Garrett: Right. You asked me how to use Grindr. While you’re apparently handling food. Dominic: Your point being…? Garrett: Just tell me exactly what you want. Dominic: School me on Grindr, fool. Worth the app subscription? Garrett: You’re hesitant to spend $3.99 a month. Dominic: You suck at being my gay friend, my man Garrett: … Dominic: ;) Garrett: It’s worth the download. I assume you’re not out yet, so use a picture of your abs on the profile. Give face pics after messaging someone if you’re serious about meeting them. You look like Chris Evans, so they’ll respond with thirst. Don’t meet a murderer.


The picture came ten minutes later, and I nearly swallowed my tongue. Staff Sgt was fucking Captain America.



If dude showed up wearing a mask and carrying a hammer, I was out. A serial killer didn’t answer the door. Well, I didn’t think so. Luke was even hotter in person. Strong jaw, good cheekbones, and eyes so pale blue they reminded me of icicles.


It had been cool the first two times, but now I was about ready to shoot Hamilton myself.


Blue eyes met mine and went wide. Nicky was Adriana’s brother. Nicky was Dominic. Dominic Costigan. I’d been fucking the older brother of my son’s girlfriend.


“Let me explain this first. If I just wanted to fuck, I’d get back on Grindr and find some twink who likes to bend over. I like having sex with you, but I also like making you sandwiches and reading whatever dumb shit you message me every day. So shut up and let me get you clothes.

Micah sat across from me, tapping away at his phone and ignoring my existence. I’d bet my house he was talking to Adriana. “Are you and Adriana sexually active?

Micah jolted in his chair and dropped his phone into his half-eaten bowl of popcorn. “Dad!” “What?” “You can’t just… blurt out questions like that. You have to lead up to it.” “Says who?” “Says, like, everyone.”


I was falling in love with Luke Rawlings, and I hoped to do everything I could to make him fall with me

She thinks it’s fucking hilarious. She also said you have a nice ass. Dominic: Damn right i do

Luke: I have a thing to tell you. Dominic: if you break up with me, i’ll shank you Luke: Micah asked me about you. Dominic: what about me? Luke: If we’re banging. Dominic: wut Luke: His exact words were “dating”.

“No, Dominic. Thank you.” He kissed me again before dropping another against my forehead. “For not giving up on me, and for making my life so fucking full.

Book review Strong singnal
Strong Signal - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

March 28-29

I was counting down the months until the end of my deployment. My days were spent working on military vehicles, and I spent my nights playing video games that would distract me until I could leave Staff Sergeant Garrett Reid behind.

That was when I met him: Kai Bannon, a fellow gamer with a famous stream channel.

I never expected to become fixated on someone who'd initially been a rival. And I'd never expected someone who oozed charm to notice me—a guy known for his brutal honesty and scowl. I hadn't planned for our online friendship to turn into something that kept me up at night—hours of chatting evolving into filthy webcam sessions.

But it did. And now I can't stop thinking about him. In my mind, our real life meeting is perfect. We kiss, we fall into bed, and it's love at first sight.

Except, like most things in my life, it doesn't go as planned.

Review : Garret is a solider on his last months until deployment when he's playing a video game and gets killed he looks up the guy and he's a twitch streamer his name is Kai . I love Kai he's adorable Kai has social anxiety and rarely leaves his apartment him and Garrett start talking and flirting. Garrett finds out Kai was a cam boy and they start kinda sexting and skype sex it and was sexy as fuck so Garrett goes to see Kai and it doesn't go as well Kai shuts the door he panics then he Kai text when he's on the other side of the door Garrett ends up falling asleep and Kai wakes him up and ends up kissing him and then end up having sex they have a lot of fun and Kai tells Garett about his social anxiety . Garrett comes out to his family and they want to meet Kai but Garrett explains to them about his anxiety so when Garrett and him were video chatting he meets Garrett's sister and mom it was so cute . Garrett is taking a job out of state and he wants Kai to come with him and when Garrett is gone looking at a house to rent Kai went to a doctor and he goes to Garretts mom's house and says he's coming with Garrett yes I'm so happy for them I love this series it's so cute and sexy .
Quotes:
He was a slim, pale skinned, onyx-haired youth with expressive blue eyes and a very pretty mouth. Almost too gorgeous to be real.


Holy shit. I’d just had my face owned by a hot little twink.


There was no question that he was gorgeous. The inky black hair spilling around his face, bright eyes, wide mouth and that adorable upturned nose. And his body was just as amazing. On the thin side but really fit. Sometimes when he stood up in front of the camera, his pants slid down a little and I got an eyeful of hipbones and the barest hint of pubic hair.


Oh hey, I spend my life online playing video games, I never leave my apartment. I also used to jack off on camera for money, and those videos are everywhere online. Nice to meet you.


He was probably off risking his life every day and I was hitting on him. I should be arrested. Or prevented from speaking to people.



I received a new message from G. Holy shit. There was a picture attached. One. And I nearly spilled my oatmeal all over my lap, because Jesus fucking Christ on a cracker, the guy was smoking hot. The picture was clearly a candid shot. He sat sprawled on a cot, wearing nothing but camo pants—the light beige ones—boots and dog tags. My mouth went dry, and I set my bowl down before I dropped it, leaning forward to get a better look. He had aviator sunglasses on so I couldn’t see his eyes, but he had thick, messy brown hair shot through with sun-bleached gold. And muscles. Like, lots of muscles. I whimpered. If this was

Sir, what’s your emergency? Oh, nothing, just about passed out watching my online Army boyfriend beat off. Sir, please don’t use this line for non-emergencies. Have you seen my Army boyfriend? You’d have a heart attack too. Sir, I’m hanging up now.

Let’s see how flexible you are.” “I’m really fucking flexible,


“Kai,” I said softly. “Will you hug me?” He kissed me.
