Review: The Duke of Seduction

The Duke of Seduction The Duke of Seduction by Darcy Burke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

THE DUKE OF SEDUCTION by Darcy Burke is book 10 in The Untouchables series. This is the story of Lavinia Gillingham and William 'Beck' Beckett, Marquess of Northam. I have read the previous books (and loved them) but feel this can be a standalone book if you choose to do so.
Beck when he was younger fell in love with an older women who didn't return those feelings and it hurt him allot. So much so that he has taken to not give his heart out again but lives somewhat to himself but he sees enough of the ladies who hang in corners with no one interested in them. So even though he doesn't want to test love again he still has a romantic side that ends up going under the name of 'Duke of Seduction' pens anonymous letters about the women he feels could use his 'help'. Which had lead to a few being engaged and really seen to by the town instead of wallflowers of sorts. Beck takes on Lavinia who ends up with so much attention but for her this isn't what she wants. Lavinia is a bluestocking who does want to marry someday but only to someone who loves her and she loves them....but with this Duke of Seduction interference she is being the object of everything but what she wants.
I am such a fan of Ms. Burke and this book just proved again why I always look for her books...just loved it! Could not put it down until I finished it.

Review: Blood and Secrets 3

Blood and Secrets 3 Blood and Secrets 3 by Rose Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blood & Secrets 3 by Rose Harper is book 3 in The Calvetti Crime Family series. This continues the story of Carina and Mateo. I do feel strongly that you need to read the previous books 'Blood and Secrets 1' and 'Blood and Secrets 2' first.
Book 2 left us with Carina dealing with some shocking things along with Mateo. Both dealing with the outcome and working toward settling things. Their feelings for each other working towards an end goal. But their story doesn't end yet and I hope with the next installment in their story comes soon. This is a dark romance so there may be somethings in this book/series that isn't for everyone...but overall for me I have enjoyed it greatly.

About CD Reiss:
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine. _21A6258_pp-fb.jpg

OVER THE EDGE by CD Reiss is book Four in The Edge series.  This continues the story of Caden and Greyson, so I do feel you should read the previous books to fully enjoy this one.
With this book it takes us to the end of this series with Caden and Greyson.  I truly feel the series name 'The Edge' has been the correct one!  This series has kept me on the edge through out their story and waiting for the next one in this series.  I would highly recommend this series since it is so captivating.  I hope to read more by this author soon...loved this series

Review: Art of Survival Part One

Art of Survival Part One Art of Survival Part One by Monique Orgeron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Art of Survival by Monique Orgeron is book 5 in the 'A STERN FAMILY SAGA' series. This starts the story of Catherine Stern and how she became who she is today. If you have been reading the series you have been introduced to her as the family matriarch. Catherine life has not been easy and with this book we start to learn what all she has been through and now what she is going through. Catherine story is one that I have been wanting to read since book one in this series. So I couldn't put it down and read it til I was done...but her story does continue into another book (waiting patiently). Your heart goes out to her and how strong she needed to be throughout her life. Along with her children she has a man that she is totally in love with and he with her...but their are still problems that keep Catherine from claiming her happiness.
There maybe a few trigger line stories for those who are sensitive to certain story lines. It hard to put into words how you feel about this book...it takes you through so many emotions but overall it just a very good story that you will want to read. Loved it and hope to read more from this author soon!

Review: Barefoot in the Dark

Barefoot in the Dark Barefoot in the Dark by Suzanne Enoch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Barefoot in the Dark by Suzanne Enoch is book One in the Samantha and Rick Series. This is the story of Samantha Jellicoe and Richard Addison. But Samantha and Rick had meet in a previous book called 'A Touch of Minx' from the Samantha Jellicoe Series I believe. I have yet to read that series but when researching to see when they meet, it would appear to be that book. Either way this was easily a standalone book, but I did enjoy it enough that I want to go back and find the book in the Samantha Jellicoe Series. This book has Samantha and Rick dealing with his family, a possible ghost, his Castle in need of work and Samantha trying to be a reformed 'cat burglar'....all the ingredients for a great story. Really enjoyed reading this book....couldn't put it down.

Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper




Title: Kiss My Ash
Author: Leddy Harper
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 9, 2018



Blurb

Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.

He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal.

Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.

But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to hide it.

Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?

Genre: Contemporary Ménage
Release Date: August 14, 2018



Blurb

Her deepest desire might be too much for her to handle…

When twenty-one-year-old Saylor Fielding spends a tiny fortune from her new trust fund on something she’s always wanted, she’s not prepared for the consequences that follow.

Her father goes ballistic about her reckless spending and when she refuses to tell him – because she really, really can’t tell him – how she spent the money, he sends her away for two weeks to live with his three favorite engineers, Finn, Reid and Jax in the middle of the desert. She is to clean their house, do their laundry and cook for them.

That something Saylor has always wanted… just happens to be Finn, Reid and Jax. And they have no idea the highest bidder at the Troika charity auction competing to spend a night with them is their strictly hands-off boss’s daughter in disguise.

All Saylor wants to do is finish her two-week sentence and escape unscathed with her secret intact, but they take one look at her and now she has to face their kind of consequences…


Publisher’s Note: This is a steamy, reverse harem love story.

Excerpt

“Come,” Reid said, and she followed him without hesitation. He led her to a narrow bench, definitely not wide enough to seat her whole backside. “Sit.” 
She lowered herself onto the seat and she had called it right, half her ass hung over the side of the bench. Finn and Jax stayed where they were, watching her. Reid moved behind her and she turned her head to follow him.  It was only then that she noticed the strange apparatus positioned behind the bench, something similar to a catheter on a pole. A feeling of trepidation rose in her belly. Her gaze flitted nervously to the three men. She didn't want to disappoint them and since she had never done anything like this in her life before, she had no idea how not to fail them.
“You're going to be amazing,” Jax said softly, detecting the shadow that visibly marred her features. She nodded and offered him a weak smile. From behind, Reid pulled on a pair of latex gloves. When he lifted and released the latex against his skin, she jumped at the sound and a surge of wetness spilled from her. Her nipples popped out. She didn't mistake the men’s soft husky groans at her body's demonstration.
“Ready?” Reid asked. She nodded, not daring to turn around. She clenched her thighs and fisted her hands. And yet everything about those initial moments seemed to have aroused her in a way she didn't think she could be. “Relax, little swan,” he said. She tried and couldn't get her muscles to loosen up at all. “The coldness you're going to feel is just a little lube, all right?”
She closed her eyes and jerked when Reid touched her untouched hole. He prodded and poked and she knew she wasn't making it any easier for him to go deeper than the tip of his finger. “Don't fight me,” Reid said so softly she barely heard his words, but she clearly heard how she affected him. How gaining access into her tight little hole was turning him on.
 Her gaze opened on Finn and Jax and she licked her lip to see their cocks, tearing at the heavy fabric of their jeans. Reid applied generous amounts of gel to her. After a moment he said, “I'm going to insert the nozzle into your ass now, little swan.” She froze at the first contact of thin plastic edging at her. She wasn't ready for this. She started to panic. 
“You know why we're doing this, don't you, Saylor?” Jax asked. She didn't answer, she wanted them to tell her again why they were doing this to her. What the end result would be.

My Review
4 Stars
Their Boss's Daughter by Chloe Kent is the First book in the Auction Nights series.  This is the story of  Saylor Fielding, Finn, Reid and Jax.
Saylor has always had a crush on Finn, Reid and Jax, so when an opportunity comes up where she can enjoy them she takes it.  But they didn't know she was their boss's daughter so their encounter was quick until her father found she spend a large sum of money that she won't account for.  So her father makes her go to Finn, Reid and Jax to stay for two weeks as their 'maid' and other awful jobs they have.  But their surprise at who she is doesn't slow their feelings.
Hot exciting read for sure!
