About the Author:




Amber Malloy dreamed of being a double agent but couldn’t pass the psyche evaluation. Crushed by despair that she couldn’t legally shoot things, Amber pursued her second career choice as pastry chef. When she’s not writing or whipping up a mean Snickers Cheesecake, she occasionally spies on her sommelier. Amber is convinced he’s faking his French accent.


Amber loves to talk to her readers and can be found at www.ambermalloy.com



Heads up for a couple of things before I get to the story by story breakdown:

  • Sexily explicit. This feels like a "duh" but just to be extra clear...
  • Great, if you like... Brown beauties with coke bottle figures, men who lavish them and squirting. There's all kinds of positions, and places. I like how it's not drawn out sessions; There's several instances of “wish I could've lasted longer but...” and that unable to hold it back passion is HOT. 
  •  All of these stories switch POVs between the man and woman.
  • All of the stories are straight, one man and one woman. I was honestly really disappointed. I don't think BW + BW/WOC get enough attention or stories. I have to admit, this is my biggest complaint.
  • The food comparisons for skin tone is prevalent. I know it's problematic AF when white people, but given Amber isn't and the majority is pussy eating related, I just want to give a heads up for BW who can't/don't want to read books including such descriptions. Further reading on the subject can be found here:

  • I've been informed video interracial porn uses phrases certain racial  phrases that I'm uncomfortable even repeating. Thankfully, none of that nonsense here. Here's the best least problematic example I found to share from Yo, Is This Racist? 

Story by Story Review:


  1. The first story, The Guardian, threw me for a loop with what was happen. I know two high school flames are locked together in a safe house while one sells a casino. It was hot, but what they were talking about? Not a clue. Just enjoy it. 
  2. High Art, the second story following a painter and her deceased benefactor's husband is my second favorite and it's a really close, almost tied for my absolute favorite. But more on that in a min. I LOVED Bebe's painting style and subject matter, A+. And her social skills are not a gimmick. How she met the “what's wrong with you questions?” head on and her “if that's what you mean response”, A+. I also have a soft spot for the deep throating scenes. The only thing that still bothers me is WTF happens next?! Are they okay together? They broke or what?!? This open ending is irritating and it's best for me not to think about it more. 
  3. Beauty & The Boxer is the third story and my FAVE. Like want a full book following their next steps kind of favorite. It's starts off as the morning after with The Boxer telling The Baker what whirlwind they went through together the night before. They immediately hooked me and I loved how the story unfolded. Her worry about sitting on his face? The baking show competition? Money worries and goals? Being the “black sheep” of the family status? Her retro style and insecurity? Their relationship? Just ALL the LOVE. They are so adorable and sexy and I am SO in their corner. 
  4. Run, Pussycat, Run is the final story in this collection. Set in the mob days of Old Las Vegas in the clubs featured in The Guardian during their glamours heydays. I will admit I had slight problems following this one as well, the logistics...it just seems like so long, and so bad and so easy to get out of trouble. But everything else, them being a long standing couple and fighting for each other? D'AWWWW

Adjustment
Lick - Kylie Scott

 Evelyn had plans for Vegas.  She was going to find a hot guy and lose her virginity all over again.  That is not exactly what went down.

 

David has been through a lot.  As a famous rockstar, he gets what he wants.  Only this time, what he wants may walk away.  

 

This is a great story about true love and how is can happen quickly.  I loved the characters and their interaction.  Even the other characters in Stage Dive series are funny and worth reading.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Release Blitz - Wicked Wish




WICKED WISH
The Wicked Horse Vegas – Book 2
By Sawyer Bennett
Release Day August 11



Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.

Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.

Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.

Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

EXCERPT:

Want another drink?” I ask Micah as he lounges on my couch and takes the final swallow of his scotch. He flew in about an hour ago, and we’re waiting for Jorie to arrive to go out to dinner tonight. My nerves are on edge. I definitely want another drink.

Nah, man,” Micah says as he pushes up from the couch and moves to take his glass back into the kitchen that opens straight from the living room. “Tonight’s not about getting drunk. It’s about hanging out with my two favorite people in the world.”

I smile at him and nod, my stomach clenched.

But just so you know,” he says with a laugh. “Jorie’s my first favorite, you’re my second.”

As it should be,” I reply, and hope that sounds casual enough.

Micah rinses his glass out and sets it on the counter. As he walks back into the living room, he says, “And besides… I figure tomorrow night, you and I are going to hit the town, right?”

You know it,” I say as I push up from the chair, head straight to the wet bar, and replenish my vodka. There is not enough alcohol in the world to get me through this weekend. I take a healthy slug as soon as I cap the bottle.

Dying to go to The Wicked Horse,” Micah says with excitement in his voice. “Want to meet Jerico, too. He and I have been emailing about testing out some more of my designs in his club. Plus, you and me, dude… we haven’t had a woman together in a long time. Your stories about the stocks… we’ve got to hit that, man.”

My shoulders tighten and my gut rolls with nausea. How in the fuck I am going to weasel out of this is beyond me, but I’ve got to figure something out. I don’t want another fucking woman other than Jorie.

Walsh?” Micah says in question, and I turn to look at him. “We good with going there tomorrow night?”

Damn straight we are,” I say with a smile. “A night of debauchery for the both of us.”

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

Just then, the elevator doors give a slight hiss as they open, and Jorie is standing there. She looks fucking amazing, wearing a dress done in large black-and-white zebra stripes that’s loosely belted around her waist and comes down to her knees. She’s got on a pair of sexy-as-shit taupe heels to go with it and my mouth waters as I take in what they do to her legs. Hair in that sleek, angled bob that hangs halfway in between her jaw and shoulders, and that thick crop of bangs straight across her eyebrows make her green eyes brighter than ever.

I swallow hard and try to appear casual.

Her eyes go immediately to Micah, and she gives a squeal of excitement. He rushes to her, picks her up, and swings her around. The skirt of her dresses rises a bit in the back, and I look away guiltily.

God, I missed you, squirt,” Micah says with a choked voice. My guilt intensifies over the naked display of love and affection he has for his sister.

Jorie’s voice quavers with equal love. “I missed you, too.”

She hugs him hard and looks over his shoulder at me. Her eyes are wary and nervous.

When Micah releases her, I step up and casually say, “Got a hug for me?”

It’s a shameless move to touch her, but not something that would raise Micah’s eyebrows. I’ve hugged Jorie a million times over our lives together growing up.

It’s good to see you again,” she says to me as she walks into a very brotherly hug. I make the mistake of inhaling her scent, and I’m hit with a jolt of lust for her.

After we quickly release each other, she steps back and surveys my apartment as if it’s her first time. She told Micah we met for breakfast one day, but he sure as shit doesn’t know I’ve fucked her on almost every piece of furniture in this apartment. He’ll never know she went to her knees right where we’re standing in front of the elevator and swallowed every drop of cum I gave her.

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

I have an overwhelming urge to fake a stomachache, a migraine, a goddamn stroke for all I care at this moment, and beg off from this entire weekend.

Instead, I put a smile on my face and tell them, “Come on. We’ve got prime seats in Moulineaux tonight. I’ve not eaten there yet, but heard it’s amazing.”

Jorie smiles back at me before turning to hook her arm through Micah’s. She leans over and puts her head on his arm as she’s too short to reach his shoulder. They both stroll into the elevator.

This night can’t get over with fast enough for me.

Wicked Wish (The Wicked Horse Vegas Book... Wicked Wish (The Wicked Horse Vegas Book 2) - Sawyer Bennett

This story is one of my favorite tropes....best friend's little sister!  

Jorinda "Jorie" Pearce was basically raised by her older brother, Micah, since her mother died during childbirth and her father worked all the time.  When her father died when she was 17, Micah put his life on hold until she was of age.  All her life Micah's best friend, Walsh Brooks, was always around and it was natural that Jorie always had a crush on him.  

Fast forward....Jorie has been married for 8 years to Vince and living in LA.  Vince just told Jorie that he wants a divorce and he wants her to move out...the reason...she sucks in bed.  Feeling dejected, Jorie heads to her hometown, Henderson, NV, where her best friend, Elena lives to crash at her place.  After telling Elena the whole story, Elena suggests they head to Las Vegas and go to the Wicked Horse, Las Vegas where Jorie can get some of her self esteem back.  They are having a masquerade event and it would be perfect...she wouldn't have to reveal her self and she can test out the waters.  When they enter and look around Jorie is drawn to this guy who is setting up some unique type of machine.  He asks for any woman interesting and chooses Jorie.

Walsh Brooks has been in a rut lately but this woman with the peacock mask has him beyond excited.  Things get hot and exciting VERY quickly.  All too soon, something happens and Walsh quickly realizes this woman is actually Jorie, Micah's little sister....Why does she have to be the best woman he's ever been with?????!!!!!

Now the fun begins.  Jorie didn't realize it was Walsh, but she has just lived out a life long fantasy by being with Walsh.  Walsh is freaking out because he just broke the cardinal law....leave your best friend's sister alone!  Problem is, neither of them want to stop!

These two were so hot and so fun together.  Even though they both only wanted this to be a purely physical relationship, feelings quickly started coming into play.  Just when things were looking perfect...all hell breaks loose when Micah finds out.  It took some time for all hurt parties to get past their issues before Jorie and Walsh could have their happy ending but it was worth it when then finally did.

If you are looking for a fun, hot read...pick this up!  Such a great series!

Super Sikh, Vol. 2: Viva Las Vegas - Eil... Super Sikh, Vol. 2: Viva Las Vegas - Eileen Kaur Alden

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley

 

Just when you realized you need something you didn't know you needed.

 

 

 

Super Sikh, aka Deep Singh, goes on to vacation in America because he wants to visit Graceland.  Then he gets thrown into a TSA holding cell.

 

This comic is just so wonderful.  Super Sikh battles Group X, which is a comic version of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and so on.  I say comic because there is a slight Boris and Natasha feel to them.  This does not mean that the creators of this comic have overlooked the misogyny that is connected to such groups.  It’s just there is a humor here that is quite fun.

 

Deep Singh’s trip takes him to Las Vegas as well, where he steps in to help a young woman.  This is the only slightly false note.  Not his helping her, but her reaction, even taking into account Singh’s good looks.  She doesn’t act stupid or anything.  Additionally, she is aware of the weirdness of what happened.  I can’t really say any more without giving away spoilers. 

 

It’s actually quite a lovely book.  I love the characters – including the rats and the car rental guy.
