New Release Review! More Than Pleasure You (More Than Words #5.5) Shayla Black!

 

 

I am in Hawaii visiting confirmed bachelor Stephen Lund and guess what? He's trying to convince Sky Ingram that their hot but temporary engagement should be a forever one! Enjoy and don't forget to add MORE THAN PLEASURE YOU - book #5.5 in the More Than Words series by Shayla Black to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…

 

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever?

 

I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. After he delivered an ultimatum to either get over his transgressions or get out of the family business, I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take.

 

When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancé. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.

 

 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

 

 

 

Confirmed bachelor and son of a successful billionaire, Stephen Lund has to decide if get over his father’s transgressions or get out of the family business and he decides to use a temporary getaway in Maui to do just that. Skye needs someone to play her pretend fiancé at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding. But soon the pretend engagement begins to feel real and Stephen is confronted with the reality that their lives are irrevocably changed and the decision he had to make is now one where he has to choose between returning to the life and wealth he’s always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened his heart.

 

A whirlwind romance that is sweet yet poignant and full of passion and anticipation. The characters are strong, compelling and easily captures readers by the heart as some heavy duty emotional turmoil flows from the pages. One believes the other is too good to be true and the other is a workaholic, so when trouble strikes it’s obvious to Skye that she needs to kick Stephen to the curb and handle things on her own, no matter how much it hurts. Suspense builds as the reader wonder if this couple will be able to overcome their differences and reach their happily ever after. The story is on the fast side as it is a short one but this story hits right in the heart as the author brings these characters to vivid life and the conclusion to this passionate and sweet romance is so very swoon worthy.

Blog Tour & 5 STAR Review with Excerpt! Devoted To Love (Devoted Lovers #2) Shayla Black!

 

 

He was sent to guard her body…but he’s determined to steal it—and her heart—for his own.

 

An all-new sizzling contemporary romance about an alpha bodyguard protecting his small-town Texas siren from lethal danger—from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black.

 

https://onceuponanalpha.com/

 

 

 

Good Morning, Readers! Guess what? I was recently attending a wedding where the sister of the bride met this sexy, friend of the groom and sparks started flying and danger came calling! Enjoy and don't forget to add Devoted to Love by Shayla Black to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

He was sent to guard her body… he didn’t expect her to steal his heart.

 

Her sister’s wedding was hardly the place to find a hook up, but after one look at friend-of-the-groom and special operative Josiah Grant, small-town Texas beauty Magnolia West immediately fell in lust. After a stunningly sensual night together, Maggie is prepared for the two of them to go their separate ways. After all, she’s not a happily-ever-after kind of girl. But Josiah—and danger—change her plans.

Josiah isn’t looking for love…but Maggie rouses his body and stirs his heart like no other woman. She’s got a rocky romantic past, and a smart man would steer clear. But when the murder quotient in Kendall County rises and all signs point to a mysterious group nearby who have been harassing Maggie’s family, he can’t leave her unprotected—especially when he realizes he’s fallen hard for her.

 

As tension mounts and the menace closes in, Josiah will do anything to prove to Maggie that their love is real…but can they stay alive long enough to share it?


 

 

Her sister’s wedding is hardly the place to find a hook up, but after a stunningly sensual night together, Magnolia West is prepared for them to go their separate ways. He isn’t looking for love, but Maggie rouses Josiah Grant’s body and stirs his heart. A smart man would steer clear, but the murder quotient in Kendall County is rising and all signs point to a mysterious group who have been harassing Maggie’s family, so he can’t leave her unprotected.

 

Following these two strong, vivid characters on their tempestuous journey to their ‘happily ever after’ is one entertaining read that stirs passions, stimulates the mind, arouses emotions and captivates hearts. The chemistry between Josiah and Maggie sizzles with electricity from every page and makes for a lot feisty and fiery encounters whether they butting heads or engaging in steamy intimate moments which keeps things real interesting throughout this volcanic romance.

 

The plots is fast paced and full of thrilling ‘keep turning the pages’ suspense that keeps readers glued to those pages. The group that Josiah feels is responsible for the deaths in the County gives off some seriously freaky and slimy vibes that readers can practically feel radiating from the pages (good thing good vibrations from Josiah and Maggie eclipse those) and readers really become caught up in all the intrigue. Rollicking emotions, passionate encounters, stunning twists, fancy footwork and a sexy overprotective male ensures that readers can’t put this stimulating and entertaining read down.

More Than Words #5.5 More Than Pleasure You - November 12, 2019.

 

https://www.shaylablack.com/books/more-than-pleasure-you/

 

 


Maggie was shocked to feel her hand tremble when she put her fingers in Josiah Grant’s massive palm. He’d been more than nice to look at, and she’d already entertained more than one fantasy about how hot he might look out of that sharp charcoal-gray suit. But now that she was actually going to touch him, her brain felt in eminent danger of short-circuiting. How the devil would she manage if he actually kissed her? Peeled off her clothes? Thrust his hard cock—which should be large, given the size of his hands—inside her?

 

She’d combust on the spot.

 

“Sure,” she managed to murmur while seeming somewhere between cool and detached. It was her signature move.

 

As they reached the dance floor, the party tune faded away, replaced by Ed Sheeran crooning that he’d love the woman in his arms until he was seventy. As Josiah pulled her close and began to sway to the slow beat, she peered up at him. Her lashes fluttered, along with her heart. She sucked in a breath. God, she had to stop being such a nervous idiot. He was a man. She was a woman. This would probably be nothing more than a fling she’d enjoy the hell out of.

 

But looking into his eyes, she wasn’t so sure. They weren’t blue or green or brown or even hazel. They were more unusual. They were a glinting gray with a thick fringe of lashes against tanned skin. That gaze, along with the buzz of his brown hair, made him look somewhere between exotic and dangerous. And he was staring right at her, looking entirely serious.

 

Mercy, what was it about this man?

 

He swallowed like maybe she got to him, too.

 

“So . . .” She searched for a conversational topic to cut her nerves.

 

“So . . .” He smirked in return.

 

“You actually can dance. I’m impressed.”

 

He let loose a laugh. “See? I’m a lot of things, but a liar isn’t one of them.”

 

Josiah glided them around the floor effortlessly, turning her under his arm, reeling her in closer, then settling his hot fingertips in the middle of her bare back before he caressed his way down her spine and placed his palm close to her ass.

 

Lord, he felt good. Maggie tried not to imagine how his fingers would feel skimming her whole body with that soft, unhurried stroke. “Tell me . . . Were you in the service, like Cutter?”

 

Josiah shook his head. “CIA.”

 

Wow. “That sounds dangerous.”

 

“The mortality rate was higher than, say, for an accountant.”

 

“Why do I get the feeling that’s an understatement?”

 

He simply shrugged. Okay, he didn’t want to talk about it. Or couldn’t. She respected that.

 

“How long have you worked for EM Security?”

 

“About a year. I signed on because I wanted to learn from the best. Then a few months later, Caleb Edgington retired. Thankfully, his sons have proven anything but amateur. What about you?”


Since he’d done important things like save the world, he would laugh a million times at what she’d chosen to do with her life. At least he’d never guess. It wasn’t as if a guy like him would ever read an Azalea North novel. In fact, no one had figured her secret out yet, not even her sister.


“I’m . . . on hold right now. Shealyn has this big life to lead, and now she’s married. My grandparents are needing more help as they get older. Papa fell last week. Thankfully, he wasn’t hurt, but Granna can’t lift him. I barely can. And she can’t remember to take her medicine half the time. They’re little issues, at least right now. But they’re going to require more care in the coming years.”

 

“What about your mom? Can she help?”

 

Maggie bit back something pointless he wouldn’t understand and she’d probably regret. “She lives in Costa Rica with her husband and my ten-year-old half brother.

Up until the last few months, she really hasn’t been in my life. We’re, um . . . getting to know each other.”

 

“You didn’t grow up with her?”

 

She shook her head. “Long story.”

 

Hopefully, he’d read between the lines. In her book, it was a closed subject. She still wasn’t entirely sure how she felt about her mom. A few conversations didn’t erase a whole childhood of resentment, but Maggie wasn’t the sort to hold on to hate. And it wasn’t as if her youth in Comfort had been terrible.

 

“What about your parents?” she said to fill what could become an awkward silence.

 

“Long story, as well.”

 

In other words, he had secrets he’d rather keep, too. Fine by her.


The silence she’d been trying to avoid fell between them. Surprisingly, it wasn’t awkward at all. But it was tight, full of awareness. She could feel herself yearning to be closer to him. But what blindsided her was his desire for her. It hung so thick in the air it was almost tangible. Like a blanket, it wrapped around her, warmed her from the January chill that blew in under the tent. It left her no doubt what he thought or wanted.


The song ended. Neither one of them moved, simply stared. Those wicked fingertips of his prowled their way up her bare back again, making her shiver, before gliding down in a barely there caress.

 

“Josiah?”

 

“How much longer do you have to stay at the reception?”

 

Half dazed, she scanned the room. Her sister was wrapped in her husband’s arms on the opposite corner of the dance floor. Granna and Papa had already retired. Brea, bless her, had finally managed to calm her stomach enough to enjoy the festivities. The rest of the guests had either left or kicked off their shoes, started their third drink, and gotten ready to party.


“Not another minute. Are you planning to take me to bed?”

 

He cupped her cheek, looking like he wanted to kiss her. Instead, he backed away, teeth gritted in restraint—for now. She had a feeling that moderation wouldn’t last.

 

Josiah took her hand. “Yes, I am.”

My Review
5 Stars
Devoted to Love by Shayla Black is book Two in the Devoted Lovers Series. This is the story of Magnolia West and Josiah Grant. I have read (and Loved!) the previous book and you do see where Magnolia and Josiah meet at the end of that book, but I feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Magnolia and Josiah hook up at the wedding both thinking a quick hot encounter but it ends up being more. Magnolia's grandparents and near by other farmers are having some trouble from a group of people in something of a cult. So Josiah and his team ends up staying to see if they can help out. While Josiah is busting the case on the cult he is also working on his feelings for Magnolia, something he didn't expect but no something he can walk away from. Magnolia was the happy ever after women but the more she is around Josiah the more that might be changing.
This was a hot suspenseful read...Loved it!
