Hard For My Boss by Daryl Banner 4 Stars!
Hard For My Boss - Daryl Banner

Trevor, the young summer intern, is totally SCREWED.
Working at Gage Communications is an opportunity of a lifetime.
But will Trevor be able to handle it? Or will he succumb to the tension?
The tension is in his pants, by the way.
Between a heavy workload and a hunky, controlling boss, Trevor's summer just got a lot hotter and harder than he bargained for.

 

Review

 

Turns out I am a huge Daryl Banner fan, I love the wit, rom com, and character driven romances between great heroes. Oh and sexy times that while pretty frequent are always written out the personalities of the couple and the nature of the relationship and therefore never feel rote.

I tend to dislike his titles a lot and what more exact settings. This is true for Hard for My Boss which is a porn written in a day tile. And really doesn't give this gem of a love story the launch it deserves. 

This is another great romance with an age difference and a class difference. It has the oh dang you are my boss conflict as well. Ben and Trevor are lust dazed and while it is a bit over the top we can really see that they adore each other and that is what makes this book so special. 

There is a lot of rich suitor fantasy in this book but it is balanced with Trevor who just doesn't take any crap and is so charming and Ben who, well, worships and values Trevor. 

We have a great best friend for Trevor (the jabs between them are so funny!) and easy to sneer at "villain."

This book is a very very good time! Pick it up!

Review! Finding Hawk (Branches of Emrys #3)Brandy L. Rivers!
Finding Hawk - Brandy L. Rivers

 

 

Armed with her father’s journal and his hawk pendant, Jacinda journeyed to Wanatoga to follow the clues to stop the evil hunting her bloodline. Before arriving at the reservation, she lands herself in a new batch of trouble.

 

On watch for proof of a plot to abduct and murder Others, Chatan spots a striking redhead he’s immediately drawn to. As he watches, Josephine’s goons capture and before he can make a move, she escapes and runs.

 

Luckily, she doesn’t run far, goes straight to the nearest Motel, that happens to be owned by his aunt. Without revealing his own secrets, he convinces her staying is the safest option and he’ll help her find what she’s looking for.

 

Jacinda’s escape only frustrates Josephine who hasn’t given up on capturing the powerful caster who got away.

 

The elders look for a way to stop the murders. An old story ties Jacinda and Chatan together while her search nears the end.

 


Wow! I just discovered that more Others exist in a place of magic, the Wanatoga reservation where Jacinda meets Chatan and takes us all on a dangerous and exciting journey as they find romance and go up against a formidable foe.

 

While all the new characters and previous characters are strong, compelling and easily draw you into their world, Jacinda and Chatan are the hero and heroine in Finding Hawk which is the third book in the Branches of Emrys series and they charismatic and courageous and their story is so very exciting. Their romance is sweet but full of issues that stem from emotional turbulence and an evil foe that has colored Jacinda’s past making her reluctant to let anyone in her life much less someone that feels so connected to. The chemistry between Jacinda and Chatan is undeniable and the attraction burns hot from every page but this relationship is one that keeps readers in suspense throughout the story.

 

The fast paced and undeniably thrilling story practically vibrates energy from every page as it keeps readers glued to the pages not only because of Jacinda and Chatan’s budding romance but Jacinda’s journey to defeat one foe has brought her to the attention of one an enemy that Chatan and his family has been trying to put an end to, so there are plenty of twists and turns to keep readers on their toes. And that’s not to mention all the intriguing magical events that help Jacinda discover more about her destiny and the fight ahead of her.

 

Okay, I have to tell you that this part of Chatan and Jacinda’s story ends with quite a spectacular battle and a nightmare but their complete story doesn’t end here so now I am on my way to read the next part of their story, Chasing Dove…I am so excited.

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) by Shannon McKenna
In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) - Shannon McKenna
In My Skin is the third book in The Obsidian Files series, and we catch up with Luke who was kidnapped in book one. He managed to escape by himself, but is so very alone, as he can't remember who he is, or who he needs to contact. This was done deliberately to ensure that the 'bad guys' couldn't get any information from him, but it's left him in a bit of a bind. He has a plan to put it right though, which lands him firmly by Dani's side.
 
The majority of the book is dedicated to Luke and Dani, with the others only appearing briefly. However, they are all together at the ending. Luke is a wonderful combination of being literal, being naive, and being strong alpha-male. Dani is, for the most part, a strong and sassy heroine with her own issues, but I also found her annoying at times. There were times when they SHOULD have talked about things, but instead, they had sex. Lots of sex (although I don't think as much as Noah and Caro did, so that was one bonus).
 
The story was well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I enjoyed the pacing, and the transitions from one scene to the next were smooth. Not everyone gets a happy ending, although I am hoping for a miracle! Hopefully I will find out in a later book.
 
If you want a contemporary, science-fiction romance, then I can definitely recommend this.

Wheels Up (Out of Uniform #4) by Annabeth Albert
Wheels Up (Out of Uniform #4) - Annabeth Albert

Wheels Up is the fourth book in the Out of Uniform series, and spend some time with Dustin, Dylan's big brother.

 

Dustin is bisexual, but his family doesn't know. Just as he is about to come out to his family, Dylan beats him to the punchline. Dustin then gets a whole heap of family pressure dumped on his shoulders. His dad wants grand-kids, after all! Plus being a SEAL hasn't always been the best situation to be in if you're gay or bi, so Dustin has stayed firmly in the closet. He has his 'special' time with an online friend though, and that is more than enough for him... or maybe not.

 

Now, I'm not American, and I'm not in the Forces, nor do I know of anyone who is, so the whole fraternisation rules are new to me. That being said, wow! After seeing how distracted Dustin became, I can sort of understand the no relationship part, but to have that enforced to such a degree you can't even be friends??? And I didn't get the enlisted part of it - sorry! However, that didn't stop my enjoyment of this story one iota.

 

I think my heart broke so many times reading this one. The need to be with each other, the wanting to show people, the absolute necessity of keeping it quiet. Dustin and Wes put paid to so many preconceptions - why is it always the big guy who is the bossy top? Big guys need cuddles too! And to be fair, I can see them needing someone else to take charge of them, after being in charge of others for so much of the time.

 

So much steam, so much heartbreak, so much worry, and so much hope. You get a HFN, which I just hope will be enough. Can't wait to read more and find out. There were no editing or grammatical errors that interrupted my reading flow, and I was thoroughly engrossed from start to finish. Absolutely recommended.

On Point (Out of Uniform #3) by Annabeth Albert
On Point (Out of Uniform #3) - Annabeth Albert

On Point is the third book in the Out of Uniform series, and we learn more about Ben and Maddox, who have been known to the reader since Zack and Pike's book.

 

They have been best friends for years, but things have been weird between them lately, and neither of them knows how to make it right. You find out what happened through a series of flashbacks, from both points of view, so you can see the situation for both of them.

 

Oh my goodness, I wanted to give Ben a hug - even knowing he'd push me away! He has been so hurt in the past, and it is affecting his judgement of the present and the future. For Maddox though, he will try. Maddox is a dream of a character. He is tough and gentle, hard and soft. He is a S.E.A.L. who dreams of owning his own bakery, and gets excited about trying new recipes. You wouldn't think these two would match, but they do, if only Pike would let them. Of course, it doesn't quite go according to plan, but they have plenty of steamy fun times on the way.

 

One thing I love about these books is previous characters aren't forgotten. Through cameo appearances, the reader finds out just how they're getting along. Brilliant!

 

There were no editing or grammatical errors that interrupted my reading flow, and I was thoroughly engrossed from start to finish. I am loving this series, and this is definitely my favourite so far. Absolutely recommended.
