Tempt Me Like This By Bella Andre 99 cents
Tempt Me Like This: The Morrisons (New Adult Contemporary Romance) (Volume 2) - Bella Andre

As one of the biggest rock stars in the business, Drew Morrison can have anything—and anyone—he wants. Only Ashley Emmit, who has joined his tour to work on a college research project, is completely off-limits. Drew promised her father that, once the tour was over, he would send her home pure and untouched by the rock ’n’ roll world. But he has never been so tempted by anyone in his entire life. How is he going to make it through this tour without giving in to the urge to drag her into his arms and kiss her breathless?

Ashley has always lived by the rules. But from the moment she meets Drew, none of those rules make sense anymore. Not only does Drew’s music affect her deeply...but she’s never wanted to kiss anyone so badly. Not that a magnetic star like Drew would ever feel the same way about a brainiac like her, of course. And even if he did, she knows from painful experience that two people as different as they are simply don’t belong together.

But when the attraction between Drew and Ashley burns hotter every moment they’re together on the tour bus—and they begin to share their deeply hidden and emotional secrets—will either of them be able to resist temptation? Or could giving in to their feelings lead them straight toward a love they never saw coming...

Werewolf Nights - Mari Hamill


    Werewolf Nights was an interesting read! One of my favorite parts of this story was the setting! Wereville kind of reminded me of Star's Hollow from Gilmore Girls, if it were overrun with paranormal enthusiasts, that is. It was small town America, where everyone knows your name and every detail of your life, and it had a very rich history of some pretty fierce werewolf legends. I loved that the whole town adamantly believed in the existence of werewolves and werewolf hunters, and they celebrated it with gusto.


  I thought the legend of Wolfern was almost Shakespearean, a tragic sort of love story. It made it conflicting on how I felt about Wolfern in the present, as I almost pitied him and his endless search for his true love. I actually found him to be one of the most interesting characters in the story! I also really liked Greg, so their inevitable connection only intrigued me further! I never really connected with Catherine. I didn't dislike her by any means, but I also never really got invested in her either. While I did feel bad for some of her circumstances in life, I felt as if there was just something missing from her that really pulled me in. But Greg and Wolfern easily gave me two characters to be actively engaged with, and the plot was strong.


   I also thought the addition of filming a movie in this quirky town, while all this werewolf chaos was happening, added a whole new level of interesting. One you're a few chapters in the things are happening at a steady pace which made it effortless to keep flipping through page after page to see what would happen next. All in all I enjoyed this story, it reminded me of a more old school approach on werewolfs, with a more compelling plot line of man struggling with an inner wolf, like Wolfman or Silver Bullet. It was a nice change of pace from the more new age smexy Alpha pack stories that are all I see anymore,



   I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Review - The Bourbon Kings
The Bourbon Kings - J.R. Ward

What is mostly amusing and predictably cheesy in the BDB series is not so tolerable in a contemporary, real world setting.

Review - Asking For It
Asking for It - Lilah Pace

Emotionally complex and intense, really well done. Vivienne is a smart, thoughtful woman exploring and working through the trauma that defined her early in her life. She meets Jonah, and together they take the exploration to the next level but suddenly the stark honesty of their relationship causes it to change and they both realize they want more. Watching the two of them peel back their emotional scars is riveting and heartbreaking at the same time. Can't wait for the second book since

a HEA remains just out of their reach

(spoiler show)

*This book is most certainly not for those with non-con/dub-con/sexual assault triggers (less)

Review - A Gentleman In The Street
A Gentleman in the Street - Alisha Rai

This wasn't a bad book, it just wasn't the book for me. I liked Akira: supremely in charge of her life and sexuality. The sex scenes were pretty over the top and well done (definitely adventurous, so kudos for that!). But I thought the conflict was thin and didn't drive the story quite enough. I mean, I understand that family can scar you but to make that the whole problem? I guess I just didn't 'buy' it. I took another chance hoping to find something enjoyable outside my usual genre choices and bombed out again..ah well.
