Synopsis

From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new spin-off duet from the Dirty Billionaire Trilogy. Are you ready to get dirty again?

Desperately seeking rich, famous, single guy with a giant cock to make my lying, cheating, should’ve-been-born-dickless ex-boyfriend realize what he’s just lost.
Oh, and I give great head. Just sayin’.

No man in his right mind would answer that ad.
Except thousands did.
My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton’s playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.
Cue my look of shock when one of Hollywood’s hottest new bad boys, Cavanaugh Westman, comes knocking at my door and drops his pants to prove that he does indeed have a giant cock.
What he doesn’t have is an explanation for why he disappeared from my life without a word three years ago, only to show up on the big screen two years later, killing bad guys in action flicks.
Now he wants me again.
What the hell do I do now?

Review

OMG!!! You can’t end it like that. What am I suppose to do til I can get my hands on the next one? The wait it going to kill me. *rant over*

I really enjoyed the Dirty Billionaire series, but Meghan has really stepped it up with Dirty Girl. It just has more of everything that I loved about that series and something else. While you don’t have to have read Dirty Billionaire to enjoy this series, the main character in Dirty Girl is the sister of Billionaire Cray Karas. It might just give you more of an idea of their relationship and a few other things that are not explained fully in this story.

But seriously, if you love second chance romances that has lots of fireworks then you should totally read this. As so as I saw the covers I couldn’t wait to read this series. And then that blurb. It mad me laugh and what to know more. There is just something so additive about Meghan’s writing that I’m instantly draw into the story, that it’s over before I’ve even realized it.

I’m in love with the characters and the story and can’t wait to see what will happen next. Please hurry along I need Dirty Love now.

Synopsis

We’ve all been that girl.

Maybe you did a little social media stalking to check him out. Maybe you just drove by his house to see if he was home. Maybe you took it a step further and followed him once or twice.

We’ve all gone a little crazy over a guy before.

I went a little crazy. That’s how Archer Ware ended up tied to the bed. I should probably feel bad about it, and maybe once I get what I want, I will. But right now he’s mine, and that’s all I care about.

This isn’t the forced submission story you’re used to. Valentina will stop at nothing to have the man she wants, and Archer can only take what she gives.

Warning: This book contains an obsessed heroine at threat-level red, a sexy billionaire with a secret of his own, and a story so hot, firefighters can’t put out the flames.

Not responsible if firefighters show up looking to help you out.

Review

I’m not really sure what to think about this story. While it did seem a little bit over the top and unbelievable it was still an enjoyable story.

I was just getting into when the POV changed. I don’t mind dual, triple or even multi POV when it adds more depth to the story. However with this story and the POV change, I was just reading the same story from the other main characters perspective. I was hoping that the story would continue from the hero’s POV, but it didn’t.

After that I didn’t really care what the characters did next. Shame really; it could have been a good story otherwise.

Review

OMG!!! That ending was just… How could you do that to me. My heart is still racing. I kind of guessed what was going to happen, but still. The writing and the story just drew me in. I never wanted it to end.

I’m in love with both of the main characters and can’t wait to read more of their story. Despite coming from different backgrounds, they seemed to really hit it off and there was still a ‘real’ element to their relationship. And let’s not forget the sex. It’s very fan worthy hot.

However I need the next book like now.

Synopsis

Luke Garrett, a young oil mogul, can’t get his business counterpart to return his calls after a deal goes bad. After making every effort to contact the man, Luke decides to kidnap his former partner’s son, Alex, to gain the man’s attention to their shared problem.

Alex Parker is celebrating his eighteenth birthday by getting drunk with his best friend–and studiously avoiding the debutantes his father tries to throw Alex’s way. His night of revelry is cut short when he finds himself a houseguest of a rather unconventional abductor.

Even though he’s angry and scared, Alex is drawn to Luke, whose plan falls apart when his attraction to Alex generates a change of heart. Luke can’t do anything else but turn himself in to the police, much to Alex’s dismay. Alex doesn’t want to lose his chance at something great before it even begins.

Review

I was really enjoying this story and then before I knew it, it was over. It was way too short for my liking. This story felt like it was more an opening to the rest of the book or that it could have been fleshed out a lot more.

I did like Luke and Alex as a couple, even if it was a bit forbidden. The only this that I didn’t like about their relationship was the insta-insta love. There wasn’t enough development in their relationship for them to be even reaching the ‘L’ level. But that could just be me.

Overall it was an enjoyable quick read.

Review

I must say that I have never really fallen in love with the MC romance genre. All the books that I have previously read; except for one author, just didn’t quite catch my interest. So when I saw that Pepper Winters was writing an MC romance, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it or not.

However the thought of not reading one of Peppers books after all the previous ones I have read and loved was enough to tempt me to read one more MC novel.

And OMG!!! I’m so glad that I did. The FEELS, the angst; it was just pure Pepper magic. Arthur ‘Kill’ Killan was the prefect MC president. So dark and mysterious, yet something softer was always just below the surface.

I shall never again underestimate the power that this woman. Just by arranging the letters of the alphabet onto the right words, she is able to create something truly magical. I never rated Pepper less than 5 stars and I guess I won’t be starting anytime soon.

Synopsis:

“I tried to play a game. I tried to wield deceit as perfectly as the Hawks. But when I thought I was winning, I wasn’t. Jethro isn’t what he seems—he’s the master of duplicity. However, I refuse to let him annihilate me further.”

Nila Weaver has grown from naïve seamstress to full-blown fighter. Every humdrum object is her arsenal, and sex…sex is her greatest weapon of all.

She’s paid the First Debt. She’ll probably pay more.

But she has no intention of letting the Hawks win.

Jethro Hawk has found more than a worthy adversary in Nila—he’s found the woman who could destroy him. There’s a fine line between hatred and love, and an even finer path between fear and respect.

The fate of his house rests on his shoulders, but no matter how much ice lives inside his heart, Nila flames too bright to be extinguished.

Review:

Pepper Winters has done it again. Second Debt totally destroyed me and everything that I believe Jethro was. In this book we finally get to see a bit more of the ‘real’ Jethro and how he came to be. Yet it is only a little bit, Pepper won’t give you everything at once. And for that I want to hate her. But how can you hate an author who keeps giving you five star reads? I just can.

This only be the second debt of five, but by god I don’t think my heart could take anymore. It was pure torture just reading what the characters were going through, let alone having to actually do the debt.

Second Debt was more of an emotional look at the Jethro and Nila and how they were developing their relationship despite everything. I don’t know how they get up each day. knowing it may be there last. I just couldn’t do it.

Another cliff hanger ending. I knew it was coming but still the way it happens is always shocking. I want to throw my kindle out the window. But then I think how will I read the next one? So I keep it by me and pray that the next one in the series comes soon enough. I need more right now.

Synopsis:

The name’s Aeron Lore. And you are…? Such a pleasure to meet you, sweetheart. Is that a southern accent? Gorgeous.

You fucking bitch.

Why so surprised? I control a billion dollar fortune. I control the news. Give me five minutes and I’ll control you, too. If you could read my mind, you’d probably call me perverted. Unnatural. Manipulative. But I’ve learned to blend in, to be funny and charming. A predator in a designer suit.

I have no conscience. No shame in taking the things I want. And what I wanted was for Leontine Reeves to sell me her boutique tech firm so I could exploit the f**k out of it. Maybe exploit the f**k out of her, too, because desire haunts me in shades of scarlet, and I desire Leo most of all.

I never meant for this to be a love story. I fought it kicking and screaming, the same way Leo fought me. Now we’re bleeding into each other, making a mess. A chaos. There’s no control here. And what do monsters like me do when control leaves the building?

We attack.

Review:

Where to start? This book is not at all what I thought it would be. I was expecting something a little different and for that reason I am left wanting more. It wasn’t as dark as some other books that I have read, but in saying that it is still no ‘hearts-and-flowers’ love story either. Yes there is a love story in this dark twisted world.

I felt that the story was a bit slow, yet for some reason I keep waiting to read to find out what would happen next. I really can’t explain it. The story was still gripping enough to keep reading despite the pace the story was going for me. Maybe because it was in the male POV and I don’t get to read many of them.

Oh the definitions at the start of each chapter were also something different by the author and very entertaining. It gave a great insight to the story and characters.

The main character, Aeron was an interesting one to say the least. There was just something different about him that I wanted to keep reading to discover his secrets. And what a secret it was. Totally didn’t see any of the ending coming. That was a nice little surprise by the author.

Review:

Reading this series is like returning to a group of old friends that you haven’t seen in a long time. After finished reading the previous book in the series, I couldn’t wait to read the next one.

Fletcher and Bayler’s story was really enjoyable. They were really well matched and were perfect for each other. Both are scared of commmiting to a relationship so they come up with their own rules to label their ‘relationship’. Just when everything seems to be going perfectly, they start to have ‘real’ feelings for each other and both are too scared to tell the other for fear of losing each other and what they have together.

Men are always going to look at women, but the only ones we truly see are the ones we love

While I felt some of the story was a little flat and was not really needed, it was still an enjoyable read and everything flowed smoothly.

Again this story is a flow on from the events in the first book in the series, so it was good to see all the characters from the first two book again. They had more to the story line and you get to see them develop more. While this story can be read as a standalone, it is more enjoyable to read the book in order.

Can’t wait for the next one in the series and to see how the rest of the group fall in love in the city.

Review:

Oh man! What can I say that will do this book justice. I just don’t have the words. Everything about this book is spot on. Nothing was out of place and I loved everything about it.

Alexandra, the naughty king, is one determined guy who goes after everything that he wants. Failure doesn’t seem to be an option for him.

However Margo, the feisty princess, is exactly the same. Nothing stands in her way and she is determined to stand up to Alexandra and not be the ‘doormats’ that he is use to dealing with.

When these two clash, man was there fireworks going off everywhere. I loved reading all of their exchanges. It was just so entertaining.

Plot, story line and secondary characters were also great. Can’t wait to see more from everyone and is waiting to find out were everything will go from here.

Oh and that ending. It’s going to kill me til I can get my hands on the next installment.

Synopsis:

“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… screwed up to want something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs do make a right.”

Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do.

He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.

This is a story of eroticism, horror, and sweet tragedy. It contains graphic scenes, but there’s always light in the darkness.

#1 Tears of Tess ~ my review
#2 Quintessentially Q
#3 Twisted Together

Review:

I just don’t think that I have the words to do this book justice. I mean I’m still trying to get my head around everything that happened. This book was just one huge emotional roller coaster.

I just couldn’t put it down and when I did, I soon wanted to be reading it again. Somewhere in this dark twisted world I fell in love with Q and Tess, two equally twisted and damaged character. I left everything that they felt. Pepper paints such a vivid world with her writing that I’m instantly transported to another world.

Quintessentially Q is so dark and twisted, but I loved everything about it. It was the perfect continuation of Q and Tess’s story. After everything that they went through in Tears of Tess, I was hoping for a happier story. But it was not to be. I didn’t want things to get worse, but they did. How is it possible for someone to go through so much and have to do it all over again. My heart wept for Tess.

Q is also much darker in this story and we get to see some of what he is capable of but I know he can still go darker. You can see glimpses of it but it’s never enough.

Quintessentially Q is the perfect sequel and I never wanted to end. Yet at the same time I did because I wanted see Q and Tess have their happy ending. However the author stole that from me too. Loved the epilogue by Pepper. Alas I will have to read the next book to find that happy ending.
