What do you do when things don’t go According to Plan? For starters, you trick, deceive, and lie to the very person who ruined your best laid plans.

Welcome to the world of Shelby Stewart, P.I., who’s been hired to find Harrison Grant. To complicate matters further, her ex-partner, ex-lover, ex-everything Tank shows up looking for Harrison as well, albeit for a very different reason. Harry is the prime suspect in the grisly murder of a call girl, Lulu, in L.A.

That wouldn’t be so bad, but Tank plans on staying at Shelby’s house, and makes it obvious he’s quite willing to help her heat the sheets, again. Shelby knows that sex with Tank is dangerous, fast, and sometimes a little dirty. Now is not the time to become side-tracked. Besides, this job could launch her company into a whole new stratosphere, so it’s imperative she remain focused.

Frustration becomes Shelby’s newest partner as she makes plans to out maneuver Tank in their parallel quest. Tank, on the other hand, is always one step ahead of the game—and is not what, or who, Shelby thought.

The danger might be hot on their tails, but the sex is even hotter... strip pool, anyone?

In Shelby's line of work, elements of danger, secrecy, and deceit are to be expected. Spying on cheating spouses and apprehending bail jumpers is what pay the bills for this small-time private investigator. However, when her own cheating ex comes barreling back into town on the back of a Harley, danger, secrecy, and deceit become part of her personal life instead of just her professional one. It isn't long before complications between the case she's currently working on and her confused emotions for Tank converge leaving Shelby's heart, mind, and body at war.

From the moment he met her, he knew she was the one, but his profession had him doing something he never thought he would do. But now, Tank is ready to start-over with Shelby and right the wrongs that broke them up in the first place. He vowed to never lose her again, but this time he may not have a choice.

Fast paced with great emotional quality, this story keeps you on the edge of your seat with lots of plot twists and scorching love scenes. Shelby and Tank's physical chemistry is off the charts sizzling and undeniable from the moment they touch, but they are also each other's own personal brand of kryptonite. Shelby loses focus and distracts too easily while Tank loses his temper and becomes much more aggressive where Shelby is concerned. Part of me didn't like the lack of bodily restraint Shelby had when Tank comes back into town after the big hurts she suffered. It's clear early on in the story that there is a lot of baggage for them to sort through, which is why the relationship was never easily severed, but a bit more resistance now and then would've made it more believable.

I really appreciated that both Shelby and Tank's perspectives are given and nothing too revealing was allowed until it became necessary as part of the plotline. That being said, there were a few times it was hard to fully connect with the emotional turmoil the characters were going through; however there was a nice hum of suspense from the beginning. With the way the story wrapped up, there is potential for more in the future and I sincerely hope Ms. Edwards decides to write it with the same humor, mystery, and erotic romance that really makes this a fantastic read and re-read.

Daring to tell the truth will change the rules of this game forever.

Party Games, Book 2

When her friend deserts her at an exclusive Sydney house party, Miki Drummond retreats to a corner to observe the insanity. Watching life go by is something she does well, especially after the hell her marriage put her through.

She never dreamed she’d reconnect with not one but two blasts from her high school past. And she never expected their heated gazes to bring her body so easily back to life.

Grant Rogers and Dayne Pierce never forgot Miki. Ever. Past experience tells them to tread slowly and carefully, but that plan flies out the window when they’re all dragged into a game of Truth or Dare. Something’s up, because Miki repeatedly chooses to take a shot rather than reveal her obvious pain. Time after time.

Waking up hungover in a strange bedroom, Miki is caught in an electrically charged moment with two men who offer her unimaginable pleasure, who seem determined to keep her suspended in sweet torment—permanently.

One night of pure fantasy is all Miki dares to take, but come morning the hard truth is that walking away isn't an option.

Rhian Cahill has written a steamy romance with lots of humor and passion, and terrific characters.

This is part of the Party Games series and it focuses on one very hot game of Truth or Dare. I enjoyed watching as Miki went from observer to participant, and getting very drunk along the way. I like Ms. Cahill’s very adult version of this timeless party favorite, and the intriguing consequences of it all.

Miki Drummond is recovering from a bad marriage, and has put herself on the shelf. But with the urging of her friend, she has decided to face life again, and start living it to the fullest. She just didn’t expect it to include her two high school crushes. I enjoyed watching as she decided to give the three of them a try for one night of pleasure, not knowing if there could ever be more, but taking the chance anyway. She is smart, and stronger that she believed she was. I really enjoyed watching as she finally realized that her late husband had never cared for her, and was able to finally put that part of her life behind her.

Dayne and Grant are two very sexy hunks, and both are determined to win Miki’s heart. They are best friends, business partners, and housemates, but the only woman they have ever wanted to share is Miki. I enjoyed watching as these two gorgeous men discovered that Miki made their lives complete, and that no other woman could ever be what she is for them: lover, friend, soul mate. I loved watching their campaign of romance, working to win her over, and knowing when to sit back and let her come back to them in her own time.

This is a story of reunion, ten years in the making. It is also a story of coming home, and Miki, Grant and Dayne make the most of their time together in every way, whether it is hot and steamy bedroom antics or fun and romantic adventures at the beach. This is for all those readers who like their romance in threes, and spicy hot. One warning, though, you’ll need the tissues and the ice in equal measure.

Amy Dooley is no one’s fool. She knows Slade is out of her league. He’s slick, rich, and sexy as hell. Trouble with a capital T. There’s no doubt in her mind his interest in her won’t last longer than it would take for him to get her into bed. Slade’s insistent and finds ways to bring them together, and Amy doesn’t know how long she can keep pushing him away. Or if she really wants to.

Slade Jacobs hasn’t been able to get Amy Dooley out of his mind since the night he met her at his friend’s wedding. Of course, that could have something to do with the scorching kiss they shared. He needs to explore the desire he feels for her. Since she won’t see him willingly he has to get a little creative in finding opportune moments to run into her.

Growing up with four brothers is never easy, but Amelia “Amy” Dooley used them as the ultimate test whenever she wanted to get serious about anyone. If her brothers approved then the guy was worth it, but if they didn’t….well let’s just say bloodshed could happen. But after meeting Slade Jacobs at her best friend's wedding, all bets are off. He may be well out of her league but she still wants the man behind the suit. Will waiting be enough for these two, or will the social ladder get in the way of a happily ever after?

For Slade Jacobs, not getting his way isn’t something he swallows easily. The more that Amy turns him down, the more she turns him on and just makes his attraction even hotter. She just has something about her that calls to him, but damn if he could get her to understand that. After a tricky game of truth or dare, will Slade finally get everything that he wants from Amy, or will she keep pushing until walking away is the only option?

This was a great book by a new to me author, Rita Sawyer. The plot was interesting and the sex hot. I would have liked to see Amy's behavior a bit on the more believable side. There were times when she seemed like a great character but then she would become a bit too trashy for the flow of the book and that tended to throw me off. Still, the attraction between her and Slade was immediate and sent sparks from my eReader, and the struggle that ensues was entertaining to watch unfold. I will definitely be on the lookout for other works by Rita Sawyer, since this book had such great promise.

Calleigh Kennedy has been having graphic, carnal dreams night after night. She eagerly gives herself to a mystery dream lover who knows her body better than she does. She wakes every dawn both sexually sated and frustrated, and the dreams are growing in intensity.

Tragedy calls Calleigh home from France, but her return isn't what she expected. Everyone knows her, but she has only dim memories of her past there. The biggest surprise is Keven Cheevers, her delicious neighbor who stirs the most savage need inside her. The craving to get naked and ride him until they both pass out is becoming difficult to control. Problem is Mr. Scrumptious talks about some pack, its territory, and how it’s her destiny to lead them, as if he thinks they’re wolves or something.

Ready to hightail it back to Europe and put as much distance between herself, Keven, and Crazy Town as she can, Calleigh comes across a letter written by her grandfather. Its contents shake her to the core: her heritage has been kept a secret, and her life up until then, a virtual lie.

The person she thought she was, she isn’t. The person she’s to become, she doesn’t know. And a race from the pages of paranormal fantasy that she’s destined to lead has just become...her reality.

For Calleigh Kennedy the forest has always been a place of solitude and comfort growing up. Until her parents sent her away to school in Europe, she spent as much time as possible in woods with her friends. After coming home for her grandfather’s funeral, the last living relative she had, the comfort of the woods again calls to her. The comfort only comes during the day because at night she has been having the most erotic dreams about faceless man in these very same woods. When she comes to find this man can he explain why she has been dreaming about him and why she finds the same comfort with him that only the woods could bring her?

She has finally come home. For Keven Cheevers his intended has finally come back and yet she has no idea who he is and why she feels the things only he can make her feel. Keven knows, he has always known, and yet now he has to find a way to make Calleigh understand without pushing her away. Can he keep his feelings at bay long enough to make her fall in love with him or will his wolf come out and force the issue?

It took a while to get in the groove of the book, but once I did I was until the last page. I’ve read several other books by Jennifer Cole and each one has a unique style to it that made me want to read it again because it was so good. I did feel that the ending was a bit rushed, but Ms. Cole didn’t leave any loose ends which was nice. I would like to see this story as part of a series, since many of the other characters were people that I would like to follow up on. The plot line and dialogue never felt rushed and it seemed as though the author allowed the characters to tell the story instead of steering them in the direction she wanted.

Her Wolfen Destiny would make a great addition to any reader’s shelf of keeper books, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Leo Laporte and Scott Schaeffer are teammates on the ice and roommates off it who also share women. They’ve been coming into Kelly Chase’s bistro after games for months, and they know they want her. As the attraction grows, the men realize they want more than a one-night stand—they want forever.

Kelly’s not so sure. Yes, she wants both men, much to her own mortification. But a permanent ménage relationship? That’s taking giving her heart away to a whole new level, and a chance she’s hesitant to take. Then Leo is injured and Scott’s on the trading block, and she realizes this may be her only shot at true, everlasting love.

There are so many questions swirling around inside Kelly’s head. Can she believe in Leo and Scott’s love? And will her business and her reputation survive once people find out she’s with two men?

Leo and Scott share many things in life. Starting goaltender positions for the Buffalo Intimidators hockey team, a luxurious penthouse, women, a love for Kelly's Bistro, and an easy friendship with it's owner. However, over the course of the last few months, Leo and Scott have decided that they want more from the voluptuous Bistro owner than just mere friendship, but how do you approach a slightly shy, self-conscious woman and tell her that her forever is with both of them?

Kelly is in her element when working at her Bistro. Her tendency to be a bit obsessive compulsive about cleaning and cooking works well for the business and she works hard to maintain those high standards. She's also all too aware of the hockey playboys that come in and do a little flirting with her while they dine after home games. She refuses to give in even a little since she can't afford to lose her restaurant or her heart.

The guys do their best to impress upon Kelly their seriousness now that they've decided she's the one, but nothing is that easy. Their “Operation Seduction” works well enough in the physical sense, but they didn't expect the emotional and society aspects to be quite so intrusive and neither did I.

This story isn't your typical after one night of hot sex leads to a happily-ever-after. There are barriers, and lots of exciting sex scenes with two gorgeous guys who complement each other very well in the looks and personality department. Tall, dark, and handsome Leo with an aggressive alpha-male attitude, while Scott has a charming personality and golden-god looks to match. In between all that male goodness is Kelly with her curvy figure and girl-next-door personality, which I found to be very appealing heroine traits in this story.

There are a few abrupt scene changes that sort of impeded the overall flow of the story, but I still found the story well-written. Throughout, there is much talk of Kelly's infamous “Intimidating Apple Pie”, which the guys just love to eat and use as foreplay, but even better is that the author included the recipe at the end of the story for reader's to enjoy however they like as well. Great story, great characters, and great start to a new series. If you like ménage romance stories, you'll enjoy this story!

Feisty and gorgeous Megan Shaw is a leading lycan physician ordered by her alpha to uncover the mystery of a DNA virus plaguing her kind. But when her alpha also orders Dominic Mercer and Reyes Rodale to protect and guard her from a nefarious vampire…all hell breaks loose.

While Megan tries to stay focused on the medical quandary, a competitive game is afoot between her two tempting and arrogant protectors—a game of seduction and intrigue.

Together, they discover that being ravished by unrelenting passions and chased by a terrorizing evil can be more tantalizing than any of them had ever bargained for.

This story is so hot, nothing will bring the fever down!

BUT...this is just what the doctor ordered. Two gorgeous and sexy shape-shifting protectors with stamina in spades. Who wouldn't have a fever? Just a warning: Wear heat resistant clothing before reading this story.

Morgan Fox continues to impress her readers with this scrumptious series, filled with intrigue, suspense and hot seductions. I can hardly wait until the next book. We were introduced to the lovely werewolf doctor in the previous books in this series. Already suspecting who her mates are, I was already anticipating the release of this saga, looking forward to seeing this erotic romance unfold. I absolutely could not set this book down.

At this time, our previous villain is finally dead, but this is not the end by any means. No, it seems we now have an even more vicious killer to worry about. With Megan Shaw being the leading physician with the clues to help the werewolves finally beat this evil, she needs some serious protection. Thus she is thrust into the arms of her potential mates, Dominic Mercer and Reyes Rodale. These sexy and mighty protectors not only heat up the pages, they make a reader “sigh”.

The eroticism is wonderful and the storyline is intriguing. I found myself completely caught-up in the lives of our characters and understanding each of their dilemmas.

Each book in the Moonlight Shifters Series maintains its consistency of being a good bedtime story for the one wanting some sizzle in their fantasies. Ms. Fox has made us aware of each character to the point of comfortable familiarity in each book. I feel as though I can relate to Megan and I was excited to see why these two strong men wanted to deny the mating heat for so long. But as in all good romance books, we find ourselves utterly Ravished by the Moon right along with these fascinating mates.

Are you ready to melt into a heated drama? Why not be Ravished by the Moon yourself?

Life isn’t easy for a modern-day dragon shifter. Unlike those wuss werewolves, dragons can’t just shift and go for a run through the nearest forest. They can’t go flying on a whim. Forget about scared villagers slinging arrows; these days it’s Neighborhood Watch zealots with AK-47s. Then there’s the whole sex issue. Try telling the little cutie at the local Starbucks that a soul-shattering orgasm might end in bed flambé.

No, being a dragon shifter kinda sucks. And for Tyson, it’s even worse—because he’s suddenly in heat. Bad news for the stranger he spies running along Bondi Beach. Ty instantly recognizes Sera as his mate. Now he has to convince her, while also dodging the psychopathic dragon hunter on his tail. Scorching sexual persuasion should do the trick. Hopefully. Because if Ty doesn’t join with his Fire Mate before his heat cycle finishes, bad things will happen. Lots of bad things.

"The release of the Fire Mate. Powerful. Consuming. Incinerating."

Ty has long awaited the arrival of his Fire Mate, but he couldn't have imagined it would happen during his heat cycle and inspire all sorts of complications and unexpected trouble from a little old lady. Regardless, the dragon wants what it wants and the time to claim Sera must be now or else suffer some very inconceivable consequences. There's just one problem, Sera is human and as Ty battles his inner dragon instincts, he must prove to her that some things are possible like dragons and love.

Sera has long felt like the odd ball in any group. Her closest confidant is the Komodo Dragon she cares for, her primary priority as a zoologist. However, from the moment Ty literally knocks her off her feet, Sera battles a growing desire for someone she readily considered hers even if she couldn't understand why. It isn't long before her priorities change and she finds herself caring for a different kind of dragon all together and one she never even thought existed.

This is a combustible story with one of the hottest dragon shifters out there! The kick-off is instant and engaging from the first page with an extremely sexy nostril-flaring dragon shifter and a slightly introverted zoologist. Guaranteed there are sexy times ahead for this pair, hot enough to turn sand into glass.

Although there is potential to expand a bit more on Sera's history, the instant gratification aspect of this story left me with a no-nonsense read that has me quickly searching out for the next in the series. It's sure to be a hit among paranormal romance readers and most especially those with an attraction to dragons. There is no mistaking Lexxie Couper's writing in this story -- it is definitely hot, hot, hot!

With an evil, virus-infected werewolf/panther on the loose, twins Ryken and Luken McCree are sent to collect and protect the enticing Tabitha Burns, the best friend of their alpha leader's mate. But bringing Tabitha back to McCarthy Ranch in one piece may prove to be more of a challenge than expected.

Sexual chemistry blazes hot enough to bring the three of them to the gates of blissful pleasure, but secrets are soon revealed that could change everything between them.

As lust and passion soar high, precious time is quickly running out. With a snarling evil close at their heels, and the approaching pull of the full moon clawing at their backs, everything they desire could lead to the destruction of all they hold dear.

Double Trouble never sounded so yummy!

With sexy werewolf twins claiming their lifetime mate, this story absolutely sizzles. Morgan Fox has a sure-fire winner with this shape-shifter romance series. Twice the “hotties” always means twice the fun in this suspenseful and sexually explosive fable. Watch out gals, some HOT fantasy material coming your way.

Tabitha is Brie Ferguson's best friend and is now a target for the viral shape-shifter who hates Brie. Brie panics and asks the gorgeous twins Ryken and Luken McCree to please get to Tabitha and protect her before the evil finds her. Alpha leader and Brie's mate “Sebastian McCarthy” has one major request for the rowdy twins, don't have sex with her. But how can the twins resist, especially when they realize Tabitha is their mate?

Tabitha, on the other hand, knows nothing about shape-shifters and is shocked when the twins find her and practically kidnap her to save her life. Tabitha cannot figure out why it is she is so attracted to both of the twins, especially when their personalities seems to be so different. And the twins? Well they are still a bit upset that they have to share a mate, after-all they have been sharing everything their whole life, and they really hoped to have a mate all to their selves. But with danger dogging their every turn and mating heat demanding that they claim Tabitha, How can this story not be anything but fun, sexy and adventurous?

I cheered these characters on. I needed a cold shower after reading these hot, erotic exhibitions. Morgan Fox has continued to spin a tale that tantalizes the libido and speeds up the heartbeat as these racy love scenes continue to explode on paper.

I was enthralled with this tale and look forward to seeing what the evil characters were capable of. The secondary characters are interesting and supply the reader with enough stimulus to want to see more of their stories unfold. There were a few places where this story could have detailed the event a bit more, but over-all I loved this book. Again I say, this is becoming one “must-have” series. So are you Enticed by the Moon yet? If so, I suggest checking out this fun fable. You might just feel the Pull of the Moon in your fantasies!

Even for a Zetithian, Tarq Zulveidinoe's sexual prowess is legendary. Believing it's all he's good for, Tarq sets out to perpetuate his threatened species by offering his services to women across the galaxy...


Lucinda Force is the sensitive dark horse in a self-absorbed family, repeatedly told that no man will ever want such a plain woman. Lucy longs for romance, but is resigned to her loveless lot in life—until Tarq walks through the door of her father's restaurant on Talus Five...

The first two chapters made me want a box of tissues and a bull horn with a side of fried chicken and chocolate pie. Ms. Brooks totally ensnared my emotions when she took turns introducing me to Tarq and Lucy and the problems that beset them. Both hero and heroine have some serious issues with no one to save them or turn to, except each other. It’s how they help each other out and what they discover about one another along the way that made me alternate between giggles, sadness, indignation, hope and total joy. Stud is like the stock market with its ups and downs but there’s a guaranteed payoff at the end.

Why would I want a bull horn? To blow out Lucy’s father's eardrums and tell him to stop treating her way he does in the story. He’s not the villain but he certainly could be. Lucy is more like Cinderella in that regard. And Tarq is as imperfect a Prince Charming as one could be. In fact, I wanted to hug him because he needed a Princess Charming to show him that he’s worth more than he thinks. I think that’s what endeared his character to me the most. He had poor self esteem and confidence issues along with something else that was seriously holding him back. However, the one thing that both Lucy and Tarq are not, are quitters. These two fight the only way they can to reach for the dreams that other people believe that are impossible for them. All they needed was one chance. One opportunity to show them the way and it was so romantic that they found it in each other.

The reason that I wanted the chocolate pie is because Lucy is a great cook and it sounded like her pie would be chocolate nirvana. As for the fried chicken, that’s an inside joke that I’m not sharing. I get the biggest kick out of Ms. Brooks’ sense of humor and it’s still strong and present in this latest adventure for a Zetithian male.

Another yummy aspect of Stud besides Tarq's purring, was the sex. Of course it’s written well, and those scenes were fun, energetic and plentiful, but there’s more. There was meaning and it evolved. How? The author was brilliant in allowing a reader to see their emotions change from lust, to fledgling trust and hope, to seduction with future dreams in mind. It sounds so simple but it wasn’t because neither Tarq or Lucy were on the same page most of the time. They were awesome in bed but both wanted more from the relationship without realizing that they both already wanted that same level. One could argue that all they had to do was communicate but once I understood what internal struggles bedeviled them, I could see that communication was easier said than done. It provided wonderful emotional conflict.

A great thing Ms. Brooks did was give both the hero and heroine chances to shine and show off what they are really good at. Lucy is a lot stronger than she thought and she has an opportunity to show her fortitude and gumption. Tarq’s turn had him acting a role that reminded me of Daniel Boone and Man Vs. Wild. I was quite impressed, even more so when I found out that the author did some serious research and all those cool things Tarq did were actually possible to do in real life – mostly. Now if I could find some Snard in real life, I’d be either really happy, or in a lot of trouble. *vbg*

Once again, Ms. Brooks populated her story with imaginative and intriguing alien species that spiced up the plot and character action. Of them all, I was the saddest for Vertigan. My secret wish is that he’ll someday have his own story where he’d be in a relationship that fits his species’ needs. What a challenging story to write that would be but I’d bet, oh, so hot. As it is, I thought he and the others were well developed, entertaining and a credit to the tale.

The final chapter of Stud was undiluted romance with satisfaction and happiness just oozing from the pages. There were wonderful moments where all the best things finally happened and all the loose ends were tied up in a sweet and delightful way. I loved the optimistic future they planned and how all their dreams were coming to fruition. It couldn’t happen to a nicer couple.

Stud is filled with emotional candy that makes reading an addiction. The depth of human emotions that Ms. Brooks explored in this book was very poignant and effective. It touched my heart and made me feel. The great thing was that it wasn’t melodramatic or depressing. It was empowering and righteous while being naughty and adventurous all at the same time. Ms. Brooks delivers romance and fills each chapter with page turning events that entertain and amaze. I just adore exploring her universe of the Zethithian men and look forward to more happily ever afters in the future because they’re Snard-elicous!
