My Thoughts⇜ 

 

I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama.  Everything about this clicked with me.  I loved it.  That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...

 

Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov).  Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.

⇝Sex Factor⇜  Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…

Destiny on Ice (Boys of Winter #1) by S.R. Grey
Destiny on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 1) - S.R. Grey

S.R. Grey’s DESTINY ON ICE is an amazing start to the Boys of Winter series.  Hockey star Brent Oliver spent too much time partying this summer.  As a result, his team assigns him a live in life coach, Aubrey Shelburne, to get him back on track.  Interesting enough, Aubrey just happens to be the same woman he woke up to this morning after the party at his house the previous night.  This contemporary sports romance primarily takes place in Las Vegas and Minnesota.  It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences. 

 

I like Brent.  He has a lot of pressure on him being the son of hockey great Billy Oliver; a two-time Stanley Cup and two-time Conn Smythe trophy winner.  He is the captain of the Las Vegas Wolves and dubbed “The Golden Boy.”  His two friends and line mates, Nolan Solvenson and Benjamin Perry  are his partners in crime.

 

Twenty four-year-old Aubrey is pretty conservative due to her career as a life coach.  She needs to set an example to the high profile clientele she is assigned to.  She stops in Minnesota to visit her sister Lainey to help celebrate her twenty-first birthday Wouldn’t it figure, the one night she decides to let loose she ends up waking up next to her new client.  Talk about awkward.  The two have a pretty crazy start.  Literally, they both think the other is insane.  Their conversations are very amusing.  They face some interesting situations and have great chemistry.  I love their bickering and how they try to get on each other's nerves.

 

They are admittingly attracted to each other, but they are off-limits to one another.  Well in theory anyway.  I felt bad that due to Aubrey’s confidentiality agreement, she couldn’t talk to anyone about her situation, especially her sister.  The Area 51 scene was amusing.  I enjoyed the plot.  It had stimulating twists.  The characters are lovable and well developed. I love how the story ended.  I enjoy S.R. Grey’s writing style.  This was the first book that I have read by her.  I definitely plan on continuing to read this series.  I am looking forward to Nolan’s story, RESISTANCE ON ICE.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

THE SUMMER GAMES: OUT OF BOUNDS by R. S. Grey
The Summer Games: Out of Bounds - R.S. Grey

Brie has made the Olympic gymnastic team and 2 months before the games Coach Winters is hospitalized. His son is chosen to take over from him. He is young and attractive and Brie has trouble staying away from him.

I enjoyed this story. I liked the alternate points of view between Brie and Erik. They are well defined characters with strong opinions. I like how they learn to be vulnerable and open up after many fights and misunderstandings. Once they are on the same page, it seems they are able to work together.

The secondary characters were fun. Lexi is educating them all. Rosie gets her first boyfriend at the Olympics. Molly has her first love at home waiting for her return. Erik's grandfather is cute.

The story is intense. It's well done and developed. I look forward to more books in this series.

The Allure of Julian Lefray
The Allure of Julian Lefray - R.S. Grey

I liked this. It was fun, it was sweet, it was hot in places. It was a quick easy read for me but I wasn't 100% into the story.

 

It was nice following Josephine's journey from relatively unknown fashion blogger moving from small town Texas to the Big Apple in the hopes of finding her dream job. Little did she expect to find love along the way.

 

Julian was pretty cool, too, though I didn't feel we got to know him as well as we did Jo.

 

Lorena was my type of girl (minus the drugs of course), she was fun, told it how it was and didn't particularly care who she upset in doing so and was very into her fashion designing by the end.

 

I'm not that into fashion but it was nice to see Josephine's journey unfold.

REVIEW: Unveiled: Laid Bare 2
Unveiled: Laid Bare: Volume 2 - S.R. Grey

Summary

Lucien and Dahlia can’t stay away from one another, so, why fight it? Giving in to their feelings, they vow to start anew. However, a surprise visit from Lucien’s mysterious cousin, Selene, puts a damper on the passionate reunion.

Who is this disarming woman? Is she like Lucien, something … different? And why is she so set on getting Dahlia out of Lucien’s life?

Faced with Selene’s disapproval, Lucien finds he is forced to unveil more of his power to Dahlia, thus placing her in a perilous situation.

The Laid Bare story continues, but not without a cost to all those involved.


Volume 2 of the Laid Bare novella series

Steamy Romance/Paranormal Romance

 

 

My Thoughts

3 ½  Heart rating: Good Book

3/5 Sensuality: There Is Sex, but Nothing Explicit

3/5 Heat: Sizzling

 

In this second installment, we pick up from exactly where Exposed: Laid Bare Volume 1 ended. Dahlia and Lucien are trying to figure out if they have a future.

 

I enjoyed this installment more than the first one. Maybe because we get more answers and we’re not left totally in the dark. Finding out what Lucien was made sense and I liked it. He wasn’t what I was suspecting but I liked that twist.

 

I am still curious about him and now his cousin, Selene. I really liked the scene where Lucien tried to transfer his energy to Dahlia, then having it back fire on him was interesting to watch. I want to know more about the butler. He seems like an interesting character.

 

Still, I couldn’t help but feel like information was being glossed over. Like if only it was a few more chapters longer….

 

This is why I shouldn’t do novella’s, i’m a sucker. In one sense, the author baby fed us some information but there’s more questions that need answers. And just when I felt like I was really getting into the novella, it ends >_<

 

AGH! 

 

However, the author once again has pulled me in, much like the lure Lucien had on Dahlia, and I want to know more. I need to know more. On to the next installment: Spellbound: Laid Bare 3 XD
