Synopsis

I’ve never been afraid of the dark…but that doesn’t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can’t have, but I should’ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world.

Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes.

Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side.

Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg.

It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden.

I just didn’t expect to like them.

Review

This book is all kinds of naughty and I love it. I love that the author took a risk with this story and was brave enough to introduce the reader into a forbidden world of darkness and ones’ darkest desires.

Bric, Quinn and Smith, while all different to their own right, really brought story together. There was just something about their unusual friendship that made me want to keep reading. I wanted to know what their deepest secrets were and why they did things they way that they did. It was exciting to find at the real reason.

Then comes along a surprise in the form of Chella, and now we have one very interesting story indeed.

Oh My! I was not expecting the coupling to go the way it did.

Then the ending was really something all together again.

But like I said, I’ll do anything to get my next fix. Even if it costs me my life.

Or changes it forever.

Review

Enter one junkie that will do anything to get her next fix; even going to the ‘Boss’s’ house to ask where her dealer/boyfriend is. Add to the mix one OCD drug dealer and what we have is one very interesting and captivating story.

Truthfully I wasn’t sure how this story was going to go or whether it would even work. I was just expecting some drug lord to keep supplying the junkie with her drug of choice and then use her as his personal whore. But what I got was so much more than that.

The author has created these wonderful and deep characters of Miri: the junkie and Jag: the Boss, that I never wanted their story to end. I was so captivated by everything that was going on. For some strange reason they just work for me, even if it should go against everything.

Now I’m intrigued to find out will happen next because that ending has left me begging for my next fix.

Synopsis

Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she’s a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O’Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend’s possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he’ll end up falling for her himself.

Hammer has buried his lust for Raine for years. After rescuing the budding runaway from an alley behind his exclusive BDSM Dungeon, he has come to covet the pretty submissive. But tragedy has taught him that he can never be what she needs. So he watches over her while struggling to keep his distance. Liam’s crafty plan blindsides Hammer, especially when he sees how determined his friend is to possess Raine for his own. Hammer isn’t ready to give the lovely submissive over to any other Dom, but can he heal from his past and fight for her? Or will he lose Raine if she truly gives herself—heart, body, and soul—to Liam?

Review

One dom to love was a very interesting story and didn’t go the way that I expected it to. But in some ways I’m grateful for that. It’s not very exciting if I discover the big ‘secret’ right at the start of the story.

For the first book in the series there was lots of character development and back story to keep the reader guessing. But in some points along the way I was wishing for just a little bit more of the characters past to better understand their decisions. It would have also helped to know who’s point of view I was following. At the start it was a bit confusing but I got there in the end.

That being said, I can’t wait to read the next book to find out more.

Synopsis

A one-night stand. That’s all Ashlyn Shepherd is to me.
I’ve spent the last five years trying to convince myself that statement is true.
But saying it doesn’t make it so.

She’s the one who slipped away in the middle of the night. The one who—after only one night together—took my heart when she left. Literally, she’s the one who got away.

I hate the way she consumes my every thought, even after all this time.
I hate the way I dream of her every night.
I hate the way I look for her in every crowd.
But mostly I hate how I can’t forget her. Not even a little bit.

We were separated by cruel circumstances and now fate has returned her to me. But everything has changed. She isn’t that carefree girl I met five years ago.

I see so much pain behind her eyes. So much uncertainty. But one thing remains unchanged.
I still want her.

She. Will. Be. Mine.

Review

I enjoyed this book more than the first book in the series, but I still felt like there was something missing from the story. I think I was enjoying it so much, that I want to know more about the characters. Their story was over just as I was beginning to fall in love with them.

Panty Dropper is Ryan and Ash’s story. Ryan is the older brother of Emma from the first book, and she also makes a brief appearance at the start. It was nice to see that she is still happy. Ryan comes across as one strong alpha male and likes to get everything that he sets his sights on, this includes Ash. Although despite this, I liked how Ash didn’t just bend to his will so easily.

In the end Ryan and Ash make one very cute and happy couple.

Synopsis

Arranged marriage? Check.

Cocky new husband? Check.

It’s a marriage of convenience—one I’m determined to keep strictly professional. I can’t be stupid enough to fall for this sexy playboy’s charm or advances. I have to be strong, even if he is my husband.

Except he has a huge cock with an even bigger ego, and his main goal in life seems to be getting me to stroke both. The arrogant bastard is like sweet, sugary candy for my libido. I know he’s bad for me.

But I want to devour every wicked inch of him.

With his sexual prowess and experience, I know he’ll be explosive in the bedroom. And since we’re stuck together for the foreseeable future—keeping up this marriage charade long enough to turn the company profitable again—I deserve something to look forward to at the end of a long workday, right?

What could one little taste hurt?

Review

OMG!!! How can you just end the book there? Am I missing a few pages or did it really just end there? How am I suppose to wait for the next book now?

This story starts were the previous book ends. So if you haven’t read vol 1, don’t bother reading vol 2 cause it won’t make any sense. Plus it will just ruin a good story.

This story has pulled me in hook, line and sinker and now I never want it to end. Noah and Olivia are perfect together, if only they could see what us readers could see. I just love all the characters that the author has created in this perfect little world.

Please just give me a next book now, I really what to find out how things work out.

Review

Wow, oh wow! This was one roller coaster of a read and I enjoyed every minute of it and I didn’t want it to end. I was expecting something totally different for the story based on reading the blurb. More a long the lines of playboy wins over the girl just to get what he wants. What I got was so much more than that. And I’m glad for it. I love a surprise when I’m reading.

I found myself falling in love with the characters and the story so easily, that time just flew by and before I knew it I had finished the story. I should have known that there would be a cliffhanger but this one… Oh its really left me stumped as to where the author is going to go next.

Bring on the next volume like stat…

Review

After the cliffhanger at the end of Dirty Girl, I couldn’t wait to get my hands of Dirty Love. And it didn’t disappoint. Dirty Love starts where the previous book ends; and what an ending that was. I was really feeling for Greer. But I still wanted her to end up with Cav. There is just something about him that makes him so lovable.

Yet the secrets just keep coming and some of them where massive and some were totally not what I was expecting at all. But I loved them all just the same.

I was glad that Cav and Greer got their happy ending because when they are together, I swear my kindle was going to melt.

Synopsis

My best friend’s little sister. That’s all Emma Briggs is to me.
I keep trying to convince myself that statement is true but it’s a lie.

It’s her face I see every time I close my eyes.
It’s her touch I yearn to feel.
It’s her lips I long to kiss.
It’s her cherry I want to pop.

We were separated by time and distance, but now she’s back in my life. And everything has changed.
Every. Thing.

She’s no longer that kid tagging along behind me. The special bond I’ve shared with her–for as long as I can remember–has become something so different. Something so forbidden. Something so hot.

Desire is telling me to do it–to pop her cherry. It would be so easy to give in and take her because she’ll feel so good.

My best friend’s little sister is all grown up. And I want her.
She. Will. Be. Mine.

Review

I’m a little bit on the fence with this book. On one hand i did enjoy it, but there are just some things that were missing for me to really love it. I was really drawn in by the synopsis however I was expecting something I little but different from the story.

Ben and Emma’s story didn’t really feel as forbidden as it could have been. Sure they were snicking around but there was no real ‘I wonder if they are going to get caught’ moment. I big getting caught moment just wasn’t there for me. It just seems second nature in these types of stories.

Also I felt like we never really got to know what their friends thought of their relationship or what Emma’s parents thought. They were worried about what would happen when everyone found out but the other characters opinions were never heard. I believe it would have added more depth to the plot.

Overall an enjoyable and quick read.

Review

Q and Tess! I loved been back in their world. I was so excited when I found out that we would be getting more of their story and have been counting down the days since.

Married life seems to be suiting the couple very well and they have settled into a happy existence until Q starts to question his life and maybe wanting something else from Tess. I was wondering what else she could possibly give. She already has Q captured heart and soul. But when Q reveals what he wants I think I did a little happy dance. I was so happy for them.

Je Suis a Toi is Pepper at her best. I loved everything about this story and her writing never ceases to amaze me. A must read for lovers of this series.

Synopsis

I’m the best operator in the entire agency. The plum assignments—always mine. So when an American heiress goes missing, I’m the guy they call to get her back. Rescuing Collette Stanford is my mission. What I do to her after that is purely up to me, as long as she makes it back to the States in one piece. I’ll kill the bad guys, get the girl, and get a little taste of what the heiress has to offer. None of this is negotiable. I’m Cash Remington, and I never miss.

Content Warning: This standalone novella stars an alpha male who never misses. It’s full of sex and violence. It’s an erotic adventure, not a romance, and is not “safe.” If you’re cool with these caveats, enjoy!

Review

Right from the get go this book is off to a flying straight; no lead up to the action. The first paragraph has Cash sky diving into enemy territory on his mission to save a missing heiress. And from there is never stops. Page after pages is filled with action. And let’s not forget the heat between the main characters. Yes, it’s pretty hot.

I did like the twist in the story from the author. I was waiting for something, but I wasn’t expecting that.

If you like romance stories with plenty of action in and out of the bedroom then I would recommend that you give this series a go.
