Can you risk it? RISK ME by Bella Love-Wins & Shiloh Walker IS NOW LIVE!
Everything happened in the blink of an eye.
Less than a week after LeVan and his mother walked into the boutique where I worked, he and I were together.
Although there were few secrets in this small town, we tried. And probably failed. It could’ve been that the rumor started right there in the boutique when I took his hand and held on for too long. It didn’t matter. For one week, I spent every spare moment with LeVan. I’d sneak out of the house every night Mother was on one of her continual drunken benders.
The cat was away, so this mouse got out, and boy did I ever play.
But it was more than that.
What LeVan and I discovered was that we weren’t just playthings to each other.
We were in love.
Love at first sight.
Love at first touch.
And our first kiss was nothing but magic.
Then I gave myself to him completely.
And he did not take the gift for granted.
LeVan treated me like a princess.
Tonight, it was our one-week anniversary since the day in the boutique.
I loved it when his voice got all rough like that.
LeVan Vanderbilt had a voice like sweet cocoa, thick and rich, almost excessively so. It only got rough like this because of one thing…me.
I absolutely loved what I did to him—and what he did to me.
I loved him, period.
The weight of his dreads fell toward me, rubbing against my bare chest as he kissed a path lower, lower, lower…
When he pressed a kiss to the short, neatly-trimmed hair at my mound, I closed my eyes with a moan and reached for him.
“Not yet, pretty lady,” he said, nuzzling me.
“You’re a tease.”
“And you love it.” He bit my clit. I shivered at the sensations, hot and cold chills licking their way up my spine as he licked his tongue straight into my core.
He growled against me and I knew—I knew—that if I could just touch him, he’d stop this and put his hands, his weight on me, thrust inside me and put an end to this never-ending ache.
But he’d pinned my wrists to the bed and now, as I arched my hips up to meet his mouth, I moaned again, need driving me to the edge.
“Come for me, baby doll. Come on, Thea…let me feel it.” I came.
It wasn’t like he gave me a lot of choices.
When it came to my body, he owned me completely and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t coax out of me.
And just when I thought I had everything I could ever need, we were ripped apart.

I really thought it was a good introducing for the series. I never read the first series with Michael, and Claudia, which is called Crossroads. I do own the first book just haven't read it yet. There really isn't a whole lot to review about this one. Even though it does set up the new series, that looks like it's going to be interesting. In the new series it's going to be about the children of Claudia and Michael, as well as their Uncle Davin, whom is going to be there guardian.
In this book we find out that the new series is going to deal with trying to find out who are taken some missing teens and why. The main characters will be Uncle Davin, ( whom I really love, because his super funny), Zach, and who I will be the main character and that is Lucia. And from what I read about her already is that she's going to get herself in a lot of trouble, because she reacts before she thinks. I really believe that because she has a big heart and what's to help the people she loves.
I already started to read the first one in the series but my review won't be up until my part of a book tour that I am taking part of. So you'll have to wait until the middle of the month to find out what I thought about the first book.
This is book #11, in the Black Knights, Inc. series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment & understanding of the series itself, I recommend reading these in order.
Emily & Christian are at one another's throats on more than one occasion. It is becoming the norm. The chemistry between them is boiling and wanting to explode.
Christian knows he is hot for his co-worker. He tries very hard to deny it to himself, as well as others. When they have to work together to get home from across the pond, it may be more than the team can take.
Such a sexy and sizzling story. I love the banter and the heat between the main MC's. There are more favorites from the series inside this book as well. Add in another suspenseful plot - and it is a super read. I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is a historical record of the rise of the Knights Templar, but the author tells us in his opening notes that he writes it in the form of a novel to make it more engaging than many historical accounts tend to be, and in this he largely succeeds, though it sometimes slips into academic treatise. Even then it holds interest. It gives a detailed history of a time before we had the European countries as we know them today, when they were small duchies that would eventually form the nations of Europe.
It is well researched and provides maps of the European continent as it was in the year 1080 A.D., when the Holy Roman Empire covered much of the land. One of them is a close-up of the county of Portucale, which will become the country of Portugal as a result of the history about to be told. This history begins with a decree from Pope Urban II in late 11th century that gathers various factions of rabble together and calls them Holy Knights, then sends them off to do a land grab in the Arabic countries because Christians believe certain locations to be theirs by God's will.
There is more detail to the political situation with Turks killing pilgrims and access to sacred sites beset by Bedouin raiders as well as payments demanded since 1065. In just the first couple of chapters, the causes and reasoning behind the Crusades becomes clear and is told in a way that holds interest.
The book is professionally notated and would make a great reference source for anyone looking for information on the rise and background of the Templars or the history behind the Crusades. I personally found it fascinating and an enjoyable way to increase my knowledge of this area of history.
