I went into this knowing it would have too much explicit sex for my liking…and so I wasn't pissed off about that.  I also fast-forwarded through them some, and that helped, too.  I do have to give the narrator's props for reading these sex scenes out loud, because wow, they were raw.  Also some props for the Author, for always keeping it real with the way she writes her sex scenes.  (I suppose I can let it slide the couple times she referred to a vagina as a sex…serious pet-peeve of mine.) 

 

While I had some issues with the MC (Blair is one f'-ed up chic) and the believability of the story...I think, overall, I liked how different this story is…it wasn't cliched like a lot of New Adult/Contemporary Romance stories out these days.  The fate of the love triangle will leave you wondering just which direction it's going in, right up until the very end.

 

Will I read more from this Author? Maybe…

College Boys (Men of Holsum College #1) by Daisy Harris Review
College Boys / Diva and the Frat Boy - Daisy Harris

When soccer star Chris Fischer moves next door to an openly gay classmate, he doesn't realize the wall between their rooms will be so thin he'll hear his neighbor's every move. But soon he and Peter become friends, and Chris is intrigued—imagining what happens on the other side of the wall. Active on the Queer Student Council, Peter Cohen wishes he wasn't so damn hot for his straight neighbor. He can't tell if Chris is flirting or in denial or what, but Chris's innocent overtures lure Peter into flirtation that throws his world into chaos. Peter doesn't want to date a closet case, but he desperately, passionately wants Chris. Soon Chris must choose whether to run away from his new feelings or embrace a relationship with the guy he loves. And Peter must decide if he can give his heart to a guy who hasn't yet figured it all out.

 

Review

 

 

This is a hot and sweet romance. It is a great tale of falling in love and takes particular care with showing how someone comes to understand their sexuality varies and there is no one correct way.

 

We get to see Chris' process while Peter supports him. There is a sweetness to this romance and you will believe in how in love they are.

 

Peter is a great character and we could have spent more time with him outside his relationship and relationship angst. Chris is a great guy as well.

 

I love the message of finding community in the book.

 

A nice start to a new adult series.

Review: Dirty Games by Samanthe Beck
Dirty Games (Tropical Temptation Book 4) - Samanthe Beck

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

 

Samanthe Beck takes readers on one deliciously naughty tropical getaway in the aptly-titled Dirty Games. While this book has sun, fun, and enough steam to delight anyone looking for a fast and hot read, there’s also a healthy dose of emotion that gives the story heart and makes you want to come back for more.

Quinn Sheridan is a hardworking actress on the verge of making it big, going from popular TV actress to blockbuster movie star. The only problem is, after recovering from a knee sprain she is out of shape and only has six weeks to get into a skintight leather cat suit. When her agent sends her to paradise, it’s not for fun, but for hardass trainer Luke McLean to get her video game heroine-ready. Both Quinn and Luke had me from the get-go. Luke may be strict, but he’s also caring and compassionate. He’s got a good heart and he’s very good with his hands, which makes him a pretty drool-worthy hero. He’s been burned by Hollywood in the past and has no desire to get sucked into Quinn’s world. But there’s something about the spirited, determined actress he can’t help but be drawn to. Quinn is no spoiled diva, but someone who has worked hard to get where she is and who has very real emotional problems that comes from having an addict twin and a mother who enables him. There were times that my heart just broke for Quinn. I loved her mix of strength and vulnerability. She’s not used to being able to count on someone and that sometimes leads her to making mistakes. Her romance with Luke is fast-paced, but the situation Quinn is in means she has to open up relatively quickly to him which breaks down some of his walls in turn. Sparks fly between the two of them from the start, but their trainer-client relationship and all that goes with it means that getting involved is a terrible idea. Terrible idea or not, the sexual tension between them is hot as hell and when that tension boils over… Well, this book isn’t called Dirty Games for no reason.

Dirty Games is has a great mix of passion, fantasy, and emotion. It has all the sparks and sass I’ve come to expect from Ms. Beck’s work and I hated it whenever I had to put the book down. All in all I adored Dirty Games and I cannot wait to revisit Quinn and Luke!

Release Day Review! Wolf Tales 11: Anton (Wolf Tales 11) by Kate Douglas
Wolf Tales 11: Anton - Kate Douglas

 

 

Tala and Lisa, both in the final stages of pregnancy, are kidnapped and become pawns in a terrible plot to assassinate the president of the United States. 
 
Unwilling to concede to the kidnappers’ demands, the men summon Anton for help. Devising a daring rescue plan, the über alpha calls upon the pack to lose themselves in an erotic encounter like never before. Drawing on their sexual energy will enable him to outmatch even their strongest enemies.
 
But Anton’s plan requires a sacrifice even the wizard didn't intend to make.

 

 

 

WOW! Anton is thrilling and sinfully sexy!

 

The wolf shifter world has an original, complex and dynamic culture that sets it apart from other shifter worlds and Kate Douglas brings it to brilliant life with well-written words and multifaceted, sexy characters that draw readers in and keep them coming back for more. The stories are super-hot and make wet dreams seem like child’s play in comparison, unless of course your wet dreams include the Chanku characters.

 

All the previous characters compose multiple scenes of the book which keeps readers hopping and enjoying some sizzling sex scenes. The book is full of emotional turbulence that runs a gauntlet of feelings as the characters overcome adversity and experience joy. Anton, being the pack alpha, really pulls readers into the story with his mysterious and strong personality, of course all of these characters have strong personalities, which provides lots of stimulus for readers.

 

The book starts off with one red hot scene and then immediately takes readers on a thrilling ride as suspense as a dangerous enemy sets the Chanku on a perilous journey that pulls them in different directions and has them dealing with some very difficult decisions and even the goddess, Eve has to lend a little assistance which keeps readers on the edge of their seat.

 

The stories is the Wolf Tales series really need to be read in order if you want fully enjoy the experience, but at the same time as long as you have a good understanding of the Chanku world you can enjoy Anton’s book if you’ve missed the previous one. As for me, reading this book was one steamy experience that had me glued to the pages and I really can’t wait for the re-release of number 12.

Review: Cain (Out of the Cage Novel, #1) by Lane Hart
Cain (An Out of the Cage Novel) (Volume 1) - Lane Hart

Lane Hart does it again! It was a gripping story full of angst, drama, nail-biting moments, sweet yet passionate scenes, sexy and funny men. In short, all I could ever ask for in a story like this. 

I loved the friendship and banter among the three main males. Cain, Knox, and Ivan grew up together in a sort of “foster home” for homeless kids. The downside? They have to surrender their lives to a mafia mob leader as soon as they come of age. Their relationship was easygoing and relatable; each of them was true to their character from start to finish and as the reader I could understand their dilemmas and way of thinking. Gabby, the only woman of the group, may have sounded too innocent at times but that was completely understandable; she didn’t really have much life experience as she joined the men at a very young age. The fact that they all had each other’s back without even saying it out loud gave the story that feeling of tenderness and warmth. 

My only cavil (blame it on my pickiness and personal preferences) is that it was kind of hard to get past the idea that the two main characters were of a certain age and there was no fumbling, no silly experiencing, no funny or imperfect loving scenes. However, their romance was both raw and honest and if I'm being honest with myself (and when I was able to overlook what I mentioned earlier) then it all made for a phenomenal read.
