DIRTY DEEDS by SE Jakes
Dirty Deeds - S.E. Jakes
Cillian is an operative for a deep agency in the government. He is looking for a man who betrayed his SEAL team. Mal is an ex-SEAL also looking for the same man. They meet in a club and, unknown to Cillian, Mal has been following him. Why? What happens if the truth comes out?

I loved this book. It is hot as Cillian and Mal IM each other revealing secrets and desires. It's hot when they meet in the club. I like them both, but I never saw the ending coming. Saying I was shocked is an understatement. I'm not sure if the ending is a cliffhanger or not. I will have to find the rest of the books in the series. I have to know what is going on.

JUSTICE PREVAILS by Morticia Knight
Justice Prevails (Sin City Uniforms #3) - Morticia Knight Beau, a homicide detective, is on a case which looks like there may be a serial killer in Las Vegas. He meets Austin, an IT for the department, at a bar where Austin has gotten himself in trouble and is sloppy drunk. Beau sees Austin home then contacts him later to make sure he is okay. Austin is with Beau when he has to question a suspect 3 hours away. Austin goes with Beau, and they spend the night up there. An idea comes to Beau while spending time with friends which then causes Austin to get into trouble. Will Beau be able to save Austin? Will he crack the case? I enjoyed this story. It seemed as though it needed a little fleshing out. It seemed short to solve a murder and fall in love. I liked Beau. Austin took a little time for me to warm up to as he was a flake though lovable. Beau and Austin seemed to be a case for opposites attract. I look forward to more in this series.

LOVE LETTERS, VOL. 1: OBEYING DESIRE by Ginny Glass, Christina Thacher, Emily Cale, and Maggie Wells
Love Letters Volume 1: Obeying Desire - Ginny Glass,Christina Thacher,Emily Cale,Maggie Wells

An anthology of four stories with BSDM as the focus.

 

The first story A IS FOR ASSIGNMENT by Ginny Glass has Lane, a police psychologist, working undercover with Detective Cameron Isley to break a drug ring at the local BDSM club. One night she dominates. The next he does. Things go too far, and they cannot think of the other without remembering the night she dominated him at the club. But will they break the drug ring? I liked this story. I liked Lane and Cameron. He is too used to dominating others that seeing him fall submissive under Lane's hands is good. I liked that both kept thinking of their session. I also liked that both decided to be honest when the time comes to talk.

 

Second is B IS FOR BONDAGE by Christina Thacher. Rachel goes to Marc to learn how to be a good submissive so she can gift her submissiveness to her boyfriend, Danny. Turns out Rachel and Marc break the rules. Danny is no dominant but an abuser. When Rachel goes to her final lesson, the truth comes out. Will Marc like the truth? I liked Rachel for her shyness. I liked Marc because he tried to follow the rules and not get involved with Rachel. When she comes for her class after Danny finds out, I liked how Marc showed Rachel her bruises did not change his feelings. I also liked that he puts the brakes on but Rachel has a mind of her own.

 

Next comes C IS FOR CURIOSITY by Emily Cale. Hilary works as the receptionist at a BDSM club where Mistress Rebecca works. Trying to find a private space, Hilary inadvertently walks in on Mistress Rebecca's session. After the session, Mistress Rebecca tells Hilary she must be punished for breaking the rules. Mistress Rebecca gives the punishment to Hilary. Hilary responds beautifully to Mistress Rebecca. What happens when the one time is done? I enjoyed this story. I liked that both were afraid of being fired for their behaviors. Hilary's curiosity was refreshing as was Mistress Rebecca's feeling for Hilary. I liked Hilary's eagerness and her recommendation. It was a twist Mistress Rebecca was not expecting.

 

Last is D IS FOR DETAINED by Maggie Wells. Sherry has to go back to her hometown to clean out her parents' shop. Not having good memories of the town makes it hard for her. While there, Deputy Tyler comes in thinking she is a criminal. He is also the only boy who said no to her during high school. He now makes up for it. Will Sherry forgive him? I liked this story. Sherry finally finds out why Tyler said no. They explore what they could have had and find out they like it. It was fun watching Sherry goading Tyler. I also liked that Tyler has plans for the future which include her.

 

Each story had its own special hotness. I will have to see if more volumes were written in this series.

THE PERFECT STROKE by Jordan Marie
The Perfect Stroke - Jordan Marie

CC has a one-night stand with Gray. She knows nothing about him, and he's glad she does not know who he is. A few days later Gray's car breaks down as he is driving to a meeting. There is a garage almost next to his broken down car which he goes to for help. Turns out it is owned by CC but he does not recognize her in her work gear. She recognizes him and is put out that he does not recognize her. Eventually he does and starts chasing her. When she finds out why he is in town, she tries to stay away but he won't let her. Both are starting to have strong feelings for the other but won't let the other know. Can they work it out?

 

I loved this story! I laughed so hard tears streamed down my cheeks. I skunk scene and the resultant scene after that were the funniest I have ever read! I could picture it all. I loved CC (Claude, Claudia). She was so strong and able, not going to let Gray (Grayson) get away with anything. Gray is wonderful. Even their fights were fun to watch. Somehow, they both managed to get what they wanted.

 

The secondary characters of Gray's family were great. His mother, Ida Sue, is a hoot! I loved her outspokenness. I loved that she ruled over a family that was just as crazy as she was. Their hearts were as big as Texas. I am so glad I will have the opportunity to read more of this family and Ida Sue. The villains got what they deserved. I loved that scene when Ida Sue gave them their comeuppance. Cannot wait to read more.

TEMPEST IN EDEN by Sandra Brown
Tempest in Eden - Sandra Brown

 

Shay's mother marries Ian's father. They meet in the bathroom as Ian is stepping out of the shower. Shay is a nude model while Ian is a minister. She teases, taunts, and tempts him tenaciously. He keeps showing his ministerial side and proving Shay right. Eventually he acknowledges his feelings for Shay, and they begin seeing each other. When emotions are about to explode one night, Ian asks Shay to marry him. While life is good for a while, Shay takes a job and Ian blows up. Will they make their way back to each other or go their separate ways?

 

I enjoyed this story. Shay just keeps on getting under Ian's skin as he does hers. It was delightful to watch their differences make them more attracted to each other. Shay had her doubts about the two of them together, but it works until she takes the job. I understood Shay's reaction. They never talked about her job before they married. Ian was judgmental towards her job and, as a result, her. Shay is a good, generous person. She sees needs and finds ways to meet those needs. She does it without Ian telling her this is what a minister's wife does. She is spot on and able to step in when Ian is not there. I liked her a lot. Ian needed his behind kicked once or twice.

 

This book was written in 1983 when romances were getting hotter. The love scenes did not end at the bedroom door but instead went into the bedroom. The language was getting away from euphemisms. This is a book that goes from the tame stories of the early 1970's and back to the more realistic books of today. This is part of the history of the changes of romance novels. The story is as contemporary as anything today, but it shows the evolution of romance novels. A choice read!
