Release Day Review! Total Control (11th Hour #2) Jackie Ashenden!
Total Control - Jackie Ashenden

 

 

The 11th Hour is made up of men and women who are no longer deemed fit to serve their country, but still need to fight a war. They work in shadows, keep their secrets—and follow their hearts . . .
 
Helicopter pilot Kellan Blake has always hated being told what to do, so being discharged from the army for insubordination doesn't come as much of a surprise. What does surprise him is that when he joins up with the elite, underground 11th Hour squad instead, they send him straight home. The nest of vipers that calls itself his family is the next target for the team’s tech unit, so he’ll either have to brave their traps and deceptions himself—or watch his sweet, shy friend Sabrina walk into them alone . . .
 
Sabrina’s no femme fatale, but since there's no one else with the tech skills to get the info they need, she’ll put on a party dress and take one for the team. But whoever decided she should pretend to be Kellan’s new fiancée hit a little too close to home. How can she concentrate on a dangerous mission when she's worried about giving away what she really feels for her loyal, passionate, smoking hot partner? At least she isn’t likely to blow their cover. Until she’s in the line of fire, and neither Kellan's demons nor his heart are hers to tame . . .
 
Praise for Jackie Ashenden’s Dirty for Me
 
“An intense scorcher of a story that is sure to delight fans and win her a legion of new devotees. . . . Unforgettable.” —RT Book Reviews, Top Pick

“Tension and heat pervade the frequent sex scenes . . . Readers will eagerly anticipate future installments in the series.” —Publishers Weekly 
 
“Explosively sexy.”  —Heroes & Heartbreakers

 


I just went on another thrilling mission for the 11th Hour team. On the Total Control mission, I joined Kellen and Sabrina as they fought their way to discovering the truth about Kellan’s father and Sabrina’s place in his family.

 

Kellan and Sabrina are strong characters that easily grabbed my attention and I just had to find out what happened between these two because for them achieving their happily ever after is a heart tugging, soul wrenching journey that was anything but smooth or easy. Blindness and a refusal to accept the changing emotions between them keep this couple on an emotional rollercoaster throughout their mission, and let me tell you that I don’t think I have ever been around two more stubborn characters than these two.

 

The fast paced and thrilling story keeps the adrenaline pumping and the suspense building throughout the story as Kellan and Sabrina go to some elaborate lengths to get at the truth, but there undercover game adds to the tension of their relationship as it starts to change the dynamics of their long standing friendship, so there was never a dull moment to be found.

 

The second book in the 11th Hour series is quite an emotionally explosive but sexy and daring story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. The best friends turning into lovers for this couple was filled with intense emotions and electrifying chemistry that I could practically feel as they poured from the pages. Needless to say, so far I am really liking this series, so I can’t wait for Hard Night to be released in November.

Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart – writing romance. She particularly likes to write dark, emotional stories with alpha heroes who've just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines.

 

She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she's not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.

The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

This is book #2, in the Tate Brothers series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this amazing series in order.

 

Lucas wants to keep Grace safe.  If there is anyone who can do this, he can.  Since they already have a history of tragedy between them he feels it prudent to keep his distance from her emotionally.

 

Grace knows that Lucas the means and training to keep her safe physically.  What about her heart?  She has already known tragedy and loss.  Is it wise to find herself attracted to the same type of man again?

 

This book moves at a fast pace.  I like the growing tension and how it is laid out.  The characters clash and the temperature rises.  Makes for a sexy slow burn, but they belong together.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only, by Netgalley and its publishers.

4 STAR New Release Review! The Undercover Billionaire (The Tate Brothers #3) by Jackie Ashenden!
The Undercover Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

 

 

The Tate Brothers were raised to protect what is theirs…

Navy SEAL Wolf Tate is on a mission of vengeance. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to infiltrate the lair of his arms-dealing enemy—and rescue the mother he never knew. To do this, he’ll need more than his father’s fortunes or his brothers-in-arms. He must find a way to kidnap his enemy’s daughter for leverage. There’s just one problem: She is also one of Wolf’s closest friends—and the only woman he’s ever loved…

For years, Olivia de Santis has been waiting for Wolf to take her in his arms and make her dreams come true. But she never imagined that he’d sneak into her bedroom one night…and take her as his hostage. Olivia knows she should resist him—and stay loyal to her own family. But how can she deny the burning justice of Wolf’s mission, and the blazing desire in his eyes—even if giving into the heat of the moment can put her in grave danger?

 

 

 

The Undercover Billionaire is an extremely intense read that has so many twists that I had trouble trying to decide what was true and what was lies, so I had a thrilling time to figure it out. Olivia and Wolf had lots of steamy chemistry and a very rocky romance building in the middle of a tremendously difficult situation that not only kept the couple on pins and needles but the readers as well because their happily ever after will take a lot of work to overcome some emotional turmoil based on past beliefs.

 

The suspense builds throughout the story, keeping readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation and with every truth revealed or every step taken forward this couple seems to take two steps backwards which adds lots of tension and keeps things quite interesting.  And what a conclusion to the Tate Brothers series this book turned out to be, because I was holding my breath waiting for the final truth to be revealed and whether Wolf would finally see beyond the past.

 

I was highly anticipating the release of The Undercover Billionaire as I really wanted to know how everything would work out for the 3rd Tate Brother and I have to say that I was certainly not disappointed as it kept me glued to the pages with some stunning twists and turns and some very intense emotional turbulence.  These three brothers is one of those series that has readers falling for the hero and since each of them are special in their own way, I really loved them all and I could not tell you which would be my favorite.

New Release Review! Raw Power (11th Hour #1) Jackie Ashenden
Raw Power (An 11th Hour Novel) - Jackie Ashenden

 

 

They fought for their country. Now they fight for you. 

To find the people lost in the shadows, you need the men who live in them. The former soldiers of 11th Hour are unaffiliated, unacknowledged, and definitely illegal. They protect the innocent, destroy the guilty--and capture hearts along the way . . .

Rugged, skilled, and hard-bodied, Jack King's whole life was the Marines until an injury left him discharged from active duty. But he finds a new purpose when he's recruited by a special unit that employs ex-military to do very special jobs. Yet he's not impressed when his first assignment is babysitting the pretty, perfect daughter of a politician--especially when she's far from the angel she appears to be . . .

Callie Hawthorne hates politics, and she hates playing the part of a senator's goody two shoes daughter even more. It only gets worse when her father decides she needs a security detail 24/7--and the bodyguard happens to be the most insanely hot guy Callie's ever seen. Still, she's not going to be ordered around just because of some half-assed threat to her father. . . . But when it turns out her dad's no angel either, Jack has to kidnap Callie in order to protect her. And as danger closes in, he'll need all his considerable talents to keep them both alive. The greater challenge will be to keep his hands off her . . .

 

 

 

Jake and Callie electrify readers with passion and determination in the first book of the brand new 11th Hour series.

 

The characters are strong, compelling and easily hook readers on their story as they struggle to find their way through a roller coaster of emotional turmoil and conflicts which continuously plague Jake and Callie. Not only do they have to find a way to get a handle on the situation but they fight an undeniable attraction that has them engaging in some hot and steamy embraces.

 

This story is fast paced and full of surprising twists that keep readers on the edge of their seats with danger and thrills. Jake’s unhappiness with the assignment adds to the confusion of the situation and he tries to determine just where the danger to Callie is coming from and when he does, he faces a couple of major decisions that will impact both his and Callie’s future which adds to the suspense and anticipation of the story, ensuring that readers want to know every last detail of this explosive relationship.

 

Jackie Ashenden has a gift for creating powerful, raw and thrilling stories that are full of enthralling characters that grab my attention and refuse to let go. She brings her worlds to electrifying life which makes it easy for readers to imagine each and every scene and feel as if they are part of the story taking place. I was completely caught up in Raw Power from the very beginning and I can’t wait to read the next novel in the series.

 

 

Raw Power is the 1st book in the 11th Hour series.

 

The 2nd book – Total Control is set to be released on June 26, 2018.

Recent Release Review! The Wicked Billionaire (The Tate Brothers #2) by Jackie Ashenden
The Wicked Billionaire: A Billionaire SEAL Romance (The Tate Brothers) - Jackie Ashenden

 

 

The Tate Brothers were once orphans and they have been raised to do one thing only: protect what is theirs.

As a trained sniper and Navy SEAL, Lucas Tate found the courage to distance himself from the wealthy, wicked patriarch who adopted him. Instead, he’s devoted his life to the elite band of brothers from his unit. So when the widow of one of his former comrades finds herself in apparent danger, Lucas makes it his job to protect her against all enemies. . .and not let her out of his sights.

Grace Riley feels overwhelmed by Lucas's presence, but the cold-eyed marksman will do anything to keep her safe. Soon the special attention he pays her becomes a wild romantic distraction
one that troubles Grace, since Lucas was so close to her deceased husband. Still, how can she resist Lucass intense, ice-blue stare? All she knows is that a life without strong, passionate Lucas is one not worth living. Can Lucas can find a way to honor his former brother-in-arms by saving Grace. . .and loving her, too?

 

 

 

The second Tate Brothers book is an intense and passionate read that kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end. Lucas and Grace are solid, compelling characters that both have some emotional issues that has them shying away from love but they can’t help exploring the chemistry that burns strong and hot between them. Readers can easily relate to both characters and can’t help becoming caught up in their story as Lucas fights to protect Grace.

 

The plot is complex, faced paced and multi-layered as it also includes an enemy that seems to have it out for all of the Tate Brothers as well as the bad guys that are after Grace which makes the story full of adrenaline pumping suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seats as bad guys, surprising twists and emotional turmoil fill the pages.  

 

This is the first book in this series that I have read and I had no trouble picking up on the overall plot that involves all three brothers, so the books can be read out of order. While this is the first book in this series it is not the first book by Jackie Ashenden, so I wasn’t surprised that I really enjoyed reading The Wicked Billionaire and of course I am going to have to go back and read The Dangerous Billionaire while I am waiting for The Undercover Billionaire to come out.   

 

 

 

The Wicked Billionaire is the 2nd book in The Tate Brothers series.

 

#3 The Undercover Billionaire is due to be released March 27, 2018.

 

The Wicked Billionaire is available in print or ebook at:
