One Taste (The One #1)

From K.A. Berg and T.E. Black comes a story of the forbidden desire—a story so delicious you’ll need more than One Taste.
Sebastian – 
I live a good life. I’m successful, the CEO of the advertising firm my father built from the ground up.
I’ve been deemed a god in the sheets by the female population of New York City and have the equipment to match. Life is great. 
Until my social life messes with my professional life. I’ve become a frequent flyer on the gossip pages—a detriment to business. Just as my perfect life is starting to crash down around me, I meet her. 
All I wanted was a taste, but I got much more than I bargained for.  
Devin – 
Seven years is a long time, but it’s good to be home. 
I’ve missed this place and the people in it. I’m living with my best friend, I landed a great job as an Interim CEO which will look great on my resume, and I hooked up with a hot guy I met at a bar. 
Life couldn’t get much better. 
That is until I report to my first day at my new job and standing behind the desk waiting for me is the man I spent a sex-crazed night with. 
He devours me with his eyes letting me know things between us aren’t over. Except, he doesn’t get to make that decision; I do. But, I no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to stop this disaster from happening.

One Regret (The One #2)

Sebastian – 
Who would have thought the woman who consumed me after only one night would wind being the new Interim CEO of my company? It was my sister’s doing, but it doesn’t change that she’s here, right in front of me. She wants nothing to do with me, and I want nothing more than to claim her, make her mine. 
All I want is to worship her like the queen she is, but she’s more interested in fighting the attraction between us. 
Too bad for her I can play this game better than her, and I play to win.  
Devin – 
Life just got a lot more complicated and one night of fun has turned into regret real quick.  Sebastian Brooks stole a small piece of me our night at the hotel, and I haven’t been able to take it back as hard as I’ve tried. 
I want to be with him, but I’m not sure if what I stand to gain is more than what I stand to lose. 
What will happen if I choose him over everything I’ve worked for? He’ll still own a company, but I, however, could be committing career suicide. 
I want him so badly. I want us and the way we fit together seamlessly, but there are many reasons why we shouldn’t do this. 
The doubts linger in the back of mind, and when unforeseen circumstances crash into us, it leave me questioning everything, yet he keeps me coming back.

One Love (The One #3)

Sebastian – 
Devin warned me what would happen if we kept sneaking around together, but I was sure I could control it.  
I was being selfish when it came to her. I wanted her and that was it. My mind was set and I was on the path to winning her heart, until everything blew up in our faces.  I caused pain to the one woman I promised to protect, and now I have to figure out how to make it all right. 
There’s nothing worse than seeing the look of fear on her face as the seriousness of our reality falls down on her instead of me. One thing no one counted on, though, was just far I’d go to save her. I’d walk through fire to keep Devin from living out her worst nightmare. 
Devin – 
I’ve never felt so many emotions for one person before in my life. Love. Anger. Sadness. Jealousy. It’s all there. It’s a constant up and down when it comes to Sebastian and me. He’s confident he can fix it all, while I’m still trying to get over my own fears.  
Except those fear become reality in the most terrifying way.   We’ve been through things most people only read about. 
All we want to do is love each other, but someone else has other, more gruesome, plans for us.

{Review} Suck

Suck by Nikki Belaire
Suck, Bang, Blow #1
Read June 2020
4 stars


Reece Diavolo. They call him The Devil behind his back, and when the vicious mob boss sees the bride at his cousin’s wedding he decides there won’t be a marriage after all that day…because now she belongs to him.

Macy Shaw. They call her The Mouse to her face, and when the goodest of good girls learns her blackmailing fiancé has disappeared she’s relieved…until she realizes her savior is even more dangerous than the groom.

Author’s note: Suck is short, sweet, and dirty, filled with all the best parts of a romance for a fun two-hour read. No triggers or cliffhangers and a guaranteed happily ever after.


I loved Suck so much. I don’t how the author did it but despite only been a novella the story is in no way lacking in quality.

Our hero, Reece comes into save the day by stopping an arranged marriage between his cousin and Macy all because we wants her. It may seem a bit dominating, however he is so sweet with Macy. The real people she needed saving from were her parents, they were all for themselves never mind what their daughter wanted.

Reece and Macy’s story is really sweet, but also steamy. Glad they got their HEA

“Angel, I’m…” The word sorry is right there on my lips, but instead of saying it, I slam them against hers before either of us can react. Angel’s muffled protest is trapped between our mouths, and her palms fly to my chest as if to push me away. Only she doesn’t. Her fingers curl into my shirt, those sharp nails digging into my skin.
My control breaks. My hand dives into her hair, twisting it around my fingers. We kiss harder, ignoring the fact we’re in a public parking lot. And when she moans into my mouth, I lose it and push her against the car.
“Stop.” Angel breaks the kiss, her chest rising and falling with labored breaths as she pulls away. Her fingers press against her swollen lips as if they will somehow erase the feel of mine.
They won’t. Because like it or not, when I want something, I get it. I wanted out of this mess, so I made her an offer that would make history.
But now…
We’re going to rewrite it.
However, Angel has to be handled carefully, so I play the apologetic asshole role with gusto.
Stepping back, I rake a hand through my hair. “That was out of line.”
She crosses her arms over her chest. “You think?”
Sighing, I press my thumb against my temple and throw out a final Hail Mary. “Look, what do you have to lose? A crappy apartment and a worthless job?”
For some reason, that seems to get to her, and she relaxes the grip her arms have on her chest. “What’s in it for you? And be straight with me this time. No more of this half-answer crap. I want the truth.”
“A story.”
Angel raises her eyebrows and glares at me.
I roll my eyes. “And money. Look, I don’t care how much a man has, five-hundred-k is five-hundred-k.” It’s the truth, something I didn’t mean to throw out there, but my master plan is going down in flames pretty fast.
“That’s another half-answer,” she accuses, and then twists around to walk away, but I catch her arm and spin her back around.
“Fine, you want the truth? You don’t get to where I am in life and not step on a lot of toes along the way, sweetheart. Some were by accident, and others were very much on purpose.
Somebody didn’t like what he saw in the mirror I shoved in front of his face and decided to take it out on my ass. If I don’t get some cash flow soon, I’m going to lose everything.”
An awkward second of silence quickly turns into five. Then ten. Just as I’m about to do something drastic like speak the name of a man who should never be used as a bargaining tool, she sighs.
Wait, what?
“I know I’ll live to regret this, but I can’t argue that half a million would change my life.”
“So, that’s a yes?” I ask, slowly. “You’ll do it?”
“Yes. Provided you guarantee the DNA test will prove I’m Alexandra Romanov, you’ve got a deal.”

“Oh, well, if the concern is about me screwing my boss on his desk, you can rest assured, I’m fully capable of not doing that again.”
He narrowed his eyes. “You know that’s a lie.”
“I’m not lying. I don’t need you between my legs. Especially if your handbook frowns upon it.”
He ran his tongue over his teeth and sucked on them as if sharpening the retort he was about to make. He pressed the privacy button on his desk and stalked toward me to grab my neck with one
large hand. “If my handbook flat out denied you of it, I’d still be there because it’s where I belong. And you damn well know it.”
“Then, stop talking about it and prove it.”

Author: Alyssa Turner
Genre: Dark Reverse Harem Romance

Collared, kept, disciplined, worshiped…and shared. 
The sound of a whip licking the floor should cause her to tremble. The whistle-hiss of it cutting the air should tell her to run. The pin-prick kiss of leather should make her wince. These would be normal reactions, but Samantha Hunter couldn’t go back to being normal if she tried.
She’s become a prized pet and her Master, Oleg Balashov, is a king among kings in the BDSM world.  He’s broken his promise to join two Mafia dynasties in an arranged marriage. Now a woman is dead, and he owes a debt. He’ll keep Samantha, the woman he loves, safe even if it means placing her in the care of his oldest friend.
Dr. Henri Gerard is an expert with a knife. It’s his own scars that never seem to fade, and he is not alone. Sharing a scene is nothing new for him or his brother Doms of Club Duval. When one is made whole by the perfection of absolute control, the others feel gratified to witness it. But never, not once, have any of them shared a woman’s heart. 
Is there room for two Doms to love one submissive? It won’t be easy…good thing Samantha likes things hard.

Blowing out a deep breath, I swipe my ripped thong and shredded thigh highs off the floor and race back to the bathroom, shoving them into the trashcan under the sink. Too bad the dress won’t fit in the bin too, but I can’t leave the gown behind either. That would be too tacky. I slowly twist the knob, peeking out into the hallway. Unsure if I’m relieved or disappointed the corridor is empty, I shake my head. Trying and failing to mute the emotions swirling in my brain as I tiptoe across the black hardwood. I don’t know why I’m trying so hard to be quiet but silence seems appropriate. I grab the monstrosity and my heels off the living room carpet and sweep toward the door. Only about twenty feet and I’ll be outside. Maybe one of the guards I saw last night will loan me his phone to call an Uber and I can go somewhere that’s not here.
“Good morning angel.”
Reece leans against the counter with a coffee mug in one hand, watching me with considerable amusement. He’s panty-wetting gorgeous, if I was wearing any, with the wicked grin lighting up his handsome face. He looks like a model posing for a photo shoot, and every single woman I know would buy whatever it is he’s selling no matter how much it costs. I avert my eyes to keep from staring at his broad chest or the six pack resting so sleek and defined above his gray sweat pants.
“Good morning.” I tug against my improvised dress. “I hope it’s okay I’m borrowing your shirt. I promise to return it. I’ll wash–”
“Where are you going?”
I grin too. Casual and carefree. Saving my meltdown for later. When I’m home alone.
Although I’m not sure right at this exact moment where home actually is. “Walk of shame. Isn’t that what you do after a one-night stand?”
Something shifts in his stance and his expression. A hardness that makes me shiver. The satin fabric rustles from my shaking arms, and I resist the urge to step back when all I want to do is step closer. Yet in another instance the irritation is gone and he smirks. “Because you know so much
how one night stands work?”
He’s teasing. But my cheeks flame hot anyway. Yes, I’m a stupid, inexperienced virgin who let booze and humiliation and desire cloud her judgment. But I boss up and accept my mistakes.
Move on without regret or request anything more from him. “Thanks for everything. Really. You were great when I needed a friend and I–”
“What are you going to do with that?”
Ignoring my awkward attempt to convey gratitude, he nods toward the gown draped over my arm.
“Burn it.”
Damn. I shouldn’t have blurted out something so childish and immature. Yet, all he does is nod. Seeming to wholeheartedly approve of my idea.
“My thoughts exactly.”
The clink of his cup against the granite countertop sounds as harsh as my breath when he holds out his hand. Uncertain what he wants—what to do—so I just stare. He just frowns, mad at me, but I’m not sure why.

You made the rule, Bella, yet you are the first to break it. That’s not real fair, don’t you think?” I don’t even know how to answer, even if my voice is able to work right now.
Running his hand through his hair in frustration. “How am I supposed to ignore you when you are looking at me like that?” I know he’s trying to provoke me, and I can’t do this. I need to stay strong.
“I think we are finished here.” I stand from my seat and immediately realize that was a stupid move.
“I get to say when we’re finished.” Tate stands and is not more than a foot from me, speaking in a deep sensual voice. “Why did you ask me to flirt with you, Bella, tell me what’s going on inside that beautiful head of yours.” His hand comes up and takes my face in it, slowly tilting my face to look at him, stroking my cheek with his thumb.
“Why did you try to tell me how big your cock is?” I blurt out, losing all rational thought with him touching me so sensually.
“Because I need you to know what you’re getting yourself into. You are confusing me, Bella. I don’t know what you’re trying to say. What do you want me to be to you, tell me? Am I your boss, a friend, or the man who you want more from? You can’t send me these mixed signals and expect me to say nothing. I’ve spent years doing that, and I’m not sure how much longer I can do it.”
I’m panicking, and I know I need to say it’s all a misunderstanding, that all I see is the big brother he has always been, but I can’t bring myself to do it. I can’t lie.
“I want more,” I whisper. My heart is racing at the way his eyes are on fire. I’ve never seen him look so hot.
“I’ve always wanted more, but we can’t because…” I try to say it, but my words are swallowed by Tate’s mouth taking mine.
His lips demand attention from me, the kind that you can’t ignore and is all consuming. I know this can’t happen so I need to take what I can before I have to walk away. Both his big hands are on my face and one sliding around the back of my neck, pulling me tighter as our mouths thrash together and suck the air from each other’s lungs. My body now flush against his, I can’t stop my hands from grabbing hold of his white coat like I’m never letting go. I’ve dreamed of this moment for so long, I
can’t believe it’s happening. All my doctor fantasies are rising to the surface, trying to beg for more.
To be honest, they’re only Doctor Tate fantasies, there’s never been anyone else. Tate starts to slow his kiss, and a soft sigh slips from my lips as he pulls away.
“Bella,” he groans. “Fuck, Bella, we…”
“We can’t do this, Tate.” I pull back quickly and stumble over the chair behind me. Tate grabs me around my waist to steady me.
“Breathe, Bella. It’s okay.” He tries to bring me closer again. I reach to his chest and push him back as I step backwards
My panic has my body now firing on full alert.
“Damn you, Tate, why did you do that,” I whisper angrily. “You’re my boss and my brother’s best friend, for god’s sake. Shit, I need to leave.” As I start to head to the door, Tate is in front of me before I can even get close.
“Like hell you’re leaving just yet. We need to talk about what just happened. What’s been happening for years,” he growls.
“Nothing, nothing’s been happening, and nothing will continue to happen.” I stand there getting angry that I can’t run.
“Bullshit! You can’t tell me you just felt nothing. You wanted that as much as I did. Have the guts to be honest.” He stands there with his fists clenched, when I can tell all he wants to do is reach for me.

“I was just playing the game, you know, like you do with all the other doctors and nurses in this hospital. Isn’t that what you enjoy? Tasting every meal in the smorgasbord?” I can’t believe I just said something so hurtful in my panicked state of trying to hide my emotions.
Tate just stares at me and steps to the side, opening the door.
“If that’s what you believe then I suggest you leave. See you on the ward tomorrow, Doctor Garrett.
Message received, loud and clear.” He walks past me with his shoulders a little drooped.
“Tate, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean…” Before I can finish, he’s already walking away.
“Please close the door on your way out, Doctor Garrett.” He then continues to walk into the bathroom in his office and shuts the door.
