Truth large button

Welcome to the Truth by Sherri Hayes Book Tour! I’m so excited to share my review of the third book in this wonderful series.


About the Book


For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring.There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.

Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer?

As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known.

My Review


My Rating: 4 Stars

“Feeling her body pressed to mine, seeing the trust in her eyes, was a high I couldn’t explain. Her trust meant more to me than any other gift I’d ever been given, and I hoped I’d never lose it. She deserved everything in life, and I wanted to be the one to give it to her.”

Since finishing Need, I have been anxiously awaiting this third book in the series, and I was not disappointed.

As in the rest of the series, Hayes tells the story from both Stephan’s and Anna’s POVs, and she does a lovely job. The characters’ voices are so clearly their own. There is no mistaking whether it is Stephan or Anna speaking, their perspectives are so distinct, and yet the story still flows smoothly. The prose is uncomplicated and inviting.

Anna and Stephan’s story is one of healing, trust, and perseverance. I’ve enjoyed watching their relationship progress through all three books, and until I looked back to the first, I had forgotten just how far they have come. The path has not been easy and it will continue to be difficult. In Truth, we see the relationship deepen, the connection strengthen, and the sexual chemistry heat up. Anna is no longer the completely destroyed young woman she once was, but still depends on the security and safety Stephan’s presence provides. What becomes much clearer however, is that Stephan needs Anna perhaps as much as she needs him.

I would recommend reading the first two books in the series before reading Truth. This is a relationship you will want to experience from the beginning. It’s sensual and kind, complicated and dark, warm and safe. This is a book of contradictions: can this strict Dom really be the one to continue to heal this broken young woman, and give her everything she needs and deserves, including the truth? I am anxiously awaiting book #4, the conclusion to Stephan and Anna’s story.

5 Star Book Review: HER WISH, HIS COMMAND (Dominating BDSM Billionaires Erotic Romance #3) by Malia Mallory

July 12, 2013 Adult, BDSM, Book Review, Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, Erotica, Novella/Short Story 0



Title: Her Wish, His Command (Dominating BDSM Billionaires #3)

Author: Malia Mallory

Publication Date: June 3, 2013


My Rating: 5 Stars




About the Book:

Doctor Anna Foster may just get what she wants: sexy fellow researcher Jonah Granger. She’s been in love with him for years, but Jonah has always been more interested in work at his family’s business, Granger Pharma, than romance. Now that they’ve admitted their attraction, Anna may even be able to tell him what she really wants: to submit to him.

But Granger Pharma faces a hostile takeover. Sensitive data and samples are missing from Anna and Jonah’s lab; it may be corporate espionage. Everyone is under suspicion and, and they’re even beginning to question each other. Anna must discover the truth if she’s going to save both her job and her relationship with the man she dreams of serving.


My Review:

Another fabulous read from Malia Mallory! A continuation in the Dominating BDSM Billionaires Series, Her Wish, His Command is continuation of the previous books, but we get new characters. (And we get to go to Marcus and Tabitha’s beautiful wedding with them!) Though it’s a continuation of the series, the story can be read as a stand alone.

The central characters, Anna and Jonah, are co-workers, scientists at Granger pharmaceuticals. Anna has always had a thing for Jonah, and when they are forced to share an office space, things immediately heat up between them. The tension is fantastic, and the reader doesn’t have to wait long for things to boil over. They share a mutual attraction and plenty of *cough* “chemistry” (haha, science joke), but the quiet and often insecure Anna has a hidden to desire to be a submissive, and the relationship challenged Jonah has no experience as a Dominant. This deliciously sexy story follows the couple as they find their way towards common ground in the bedroom. This couple seems to have a tendency towards hot, quick sex in public places; and I like it! Fantastically written, sensual, and sizzling hot sex scenes, and the prospect for a real and fulfilling romantic relationship make this a couple to root for. In a short time, Mallory easily creates relatable and complex characters and an emotional and engaging romance.

Entwining its way into Anna and Jonah’s sexy romance is the ongoing corporate espionage subplot. Important information an research is stolen from the labs at Granger Pharma, security is breached, and another attempt is made at Marcus’ life. Though the romantic story reaches a satisfying conclusion, the future of Granger Pharma, as well as the professional futures of Marcus, Anna, and Jonah hang in the balance. I can’t wait to read the next story!

About the Book:


The pumps are red satin with a peep toe, a shiny black contrast heel, and a ruffle detail at the vamp. The cat eyeliner with exaggerated lashes and the red lipstick on my porcelain face make the forties inspired look reach perfection.
I enjoy being a pin-up model…

C. Michelle’s vibrant debut novel, Pinned Up is full of snappy dialogue, edgy humor, and a lot of heart. This fun look into the world of a modern-day pin-up model is one wild ride!

Twenty-five-year-old Nina Moretti lives a double life of sorts. She’s a victim advocate during the day and as a side gig, lives out her 1940s fetish as a pin-up model in San Francisco, California. While she may not “do” serious relationships, she has fulfillment in her work and hanging out with her best friend, Kade—the greatest sidekick any woman could possibly want. All is well in Nina’s hectic, but satisfying life…

That is, until she meets Josh, a stunningly handsome man who has a notorious reputation as a ladies’ man. For his part, Josh is reluctant to commit to any woman, largely due to his loving, yet overbearing mother. Nina, however, sparks his interest in a way that no other woman has before. As they navigate the pitfalls of romantic entanglement, both come to realize their pasts are intertwined in ways they could never imagine. Perhaps, they have more in common than just their fear of relationships. What are two people afraid of commitment supposed to do?

My Review:


My Rating: 4 Stars


Pinned Up is a modern contemporary romance with a vintage pin up flair. Filled to the brim with vivid description, romance, some steamy sex, and a bit of angst, it’s an enjoyable read.

Among the book’s highlights is the author’s ability to set a scene. I have never been to San Francisco but Michelle’s detailed description took me right there, I had not just a feel for the city as a whole, but the San Francisco that this colorful cast of characters exists in.

Speaking of characters, I really liked this cast as a whole. Nina is strong and passionate, if not a bit stubborn. Her vintage edge adds a little something extra. Josh is sexy and smooth, with a witty comeback for everything. They each have a past (that could potentially come back and bite them in their collective asses), and offer each other the chance to finally move forward. The reader is given multiple POV’s and inner monologues, which I completely appreciate, though I would have liked for their inner voices to be more distinct and individual; at times they blended together. NOW I get to the part of the review I’ve been waiting for: I get to talk about KADE. Kade is Nina’s (aka “Cheesecake”‘s) hilarious (and I think rather sexy) best friend, confidante, and brother from another mother. He adds such a fantastic spark to the story! He’s raunchy, hilarious, clever, and caring, and I would love to read a whole book just about him.

Kade’s Motto: “Being normal, reserved, and proper in monotonous. I have too much essence to be dull.”

So, we have a great setting, a diverse and interesting cast of characters, a bit of romance paired with a side of angst, and then come some surprising twists and turns that really bring this plot to life, providing intrigue and intensity. Overall, this is a quirky, romantic, exciting, and enjoyable read.

My Review:


My Rating: 4 Stars


I considered not writing a review at all, and just including this quote from the book:

“You said you only want me?”

     “Well, I do.”

     “It doesn’t seem that way.”

     “It’s common etiquette… You say the name of the girl your dick’s in. It’s good manners.”

Because for me, that single quote from the story The Girl Next Whore 2 made the book. Never mind the rest: a collection of brief, raunchy and erotic stories, showcasing “The Wingman’s” sexual prowess and debauched sense of humor;   full of drunken hook-ups, bathroom sex, spanking, threesomes, and the general disrespect and debasement of women.

Here’s the thing, if you’re easily offended by this type of humor, this book is not for you. But if you don’t mind being slightly offended while you’re slightly turned on, chances are you’ll enjoy the book. I’m not proud that I found this book hilarious, titillating, and at times even insightful and philosophical (stay with me here, I know it’s a stretch):

“My parents taught me that if you want to be good at something, practice makes perfect, and I heeded their advice the only way I could- through dirty sex with random whores. Ah, the school of hard knocks. I’m better for it.”

#AskWingman Tips and Tricks


Creepin’ Advice For Men

If you take a girl on a date and don’t make a move she doesn’t think you’re nice, she thinks you’re gay.

The reason a girl gets dressed sexy, puts on uncomfortable heels, and spends a night buying expensive drinks instead of sitting in bed drinking cheap boxed wine is to get fucked.

Follow her into the bathroom. Even if she slaps you, kicks you in the balls, and has you arrested she’ll respect you for trying.

A spanking doesn’t have any sexual effect on a girl unless you leave a hand-print on her ass.

A woman’s orgasm isn’t physical, it’s mental.

Girls are torn between their sexual need to be treated like a whore, and their emotional need to think too much about it. What I’m saying is fuck her hard, spank her, pull her hair, choke her and call her a filthy little cum slut, then afterward eat Sushi and watch Netflix.

Eat em’ for twenty then you could fuck em’ for two, that’s how you get the stud status.

Don’t forget to cuddle because the more comfortable she is, the more likely she is to let you put it in her ass.


For The Ladies…

Stop thinking so much… You’re a girl, every guy wants to fuck you.

You’d be happier, and more guys would buy drinks for you, if you left certain friends at home.

Every time you have the urge to have an independent thought you should have anal sex to take your mind off it.

Just because you want to be a fuck buddy doesn’t mean you have to be a whore.

You have Pussy Power, so to get what you want all you have to do is not put out. In other words, pussy power is about doing nothing.

The only reason women get fucked over by guys is because they don’t realize the power they have over guys.

No straight man wants to be just your friend. Being just friends with a girl is like jerking off without letting yourself cum.

Sucking dick without swallowing is like taking your dog for a walk and not picking up its shit.

5 Star Book #Review: SURRENDER TO ME by Ella Jade

July 2, 2013 Adult, BDSM, Book Review, Book Tour, Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance, Erotica, Favorite Books 3



Welcome to the Surrender to Me by Ella Jade Book Tour! I hope you enjoy my review 🙂


About the Book:


 What happens when a Dominant falls for his not-so-submissive attorney?

Martin Abrams, owner of Master M’s BDSM club, has become unfulfilled with his lifestyle. Ever since his sub, Gracie, left to marry her true love, Martin has lost his way. Living the life of the head Dominant in his circle isn’t as appealing as it once was. Something seems to be missing.

Sassy lawyer Arianna Covington relocates to New York City after a humiliating divorce. She’s looking for a fresh start when she agrees to become Martin’s exclusive attorney. She’s intrigued by his domineering personality and wants to know why women kneel at his feet.

Their attraction is undeniable despite Ari’s initial beliefs that she will never submit to Martin’s desires. But Martin is up for the challenge. Arianna is more than he ever imagined in a woman. He vows to claim her heart, with or without the games. Who will surrender first?

Featuring Cade and Gracie from Make Me Stay.

Content Warning: contains explicit language and graphic sexual content

My Review:


My Rating: 5 Stars!


” ‘I’ll never kneel before you.’ Her sweet breath caressed his lips. ‘Just so you know.’

His dominant side begged to break free.

‘Is that a challenge?’

‘Just a fact.’ She smiled as she removed her hand from underneath his and placed it on top.

Ah yes, Master M is definitely up for this challenge.


I absolutely love this book; an unlikely but heartfelt and sexy romance, sensual BDSM, and an emotional journey towards submission, compromise, understanding, and ultimately love.

I adore the main characters in this story. Ari and Martin may have very different expectations for relationships, but they are willing to put that aside and attempt to build a future together, in spite of the obstacles. He’s a Dominant, and she is NOT a submissive. Their journey shows the trust it takes to venture in to the unknown in an an effort to find a love that can only exist on middle ground. Not only does Martin push Ari’s limits of submission, she pushes his limits as a man.

The writing is clean, smooth, beautiful and engaging, I was captivated by the entire story. Sensual and deliciously titillating BDSM scenes, an emotional love story, and just enough drama and humor combine in this lovely book: a few fantastic hours of escape, where I smiled, shed a few tears, and basked in the afterglow of a happily-ever-after.


” ‘I have an incredible Master.’ She hugged him. ‘Thank you.’ 

‘For what?’

‘Helping me figure out who I want to be’.

‘Who is that?’ He played with the ends of her hair.


That one word warmed his heart. In his past, many had belonged to him but no one had ever possessed him the way she did. He may have been the Master, but she held all the power.

She had his soul.”

About the Book:


Too Sexy for His Stetson

By: Mal Olsen

Anguished over his father’s lack of morals, Deputy Blade Beringer struggles to conquer self-doubts. When he and his K9 partner Rambo arrive in the mountains of northern Idaho, Blade is faced with a band of white supremacists, a homicide investigation, and a murder cold case, not to mention the task of training a gorgeous blond rookie.

Trainee Brandy Wilcox is bent on clearing her mother’s name of a wrongful murder conviction. While working the homicide investigation with her sexy new training officer, she discovers a connection between the victim and her mother’s case. The two deputies struggle to resist their mutual attraction and abide by the no-fraternizing rules, but passion blazes and teeters on the brink of love. With a killer targeting them and danger lurking at every turn, Brandy doubts their love can blossom, especially when she puts Officer Skip Coogan—Blade’s best friend and father figure—at the top of her suspect list.







My Review:


My Rating: 5 Stars


I LOVE BLADE! I’m pretty sure I was doodling his name in my Trapper Keeper ALL through second period and missed the entire class!

Too Sexy for His Stetson is the perfect mix of sizzling hot sexual chemistry, tender romance, and heart-pounding action and suspense. Blade and Brandy come together, each with their own dark past and offer each other the chance at a better future. BUT, their romance is against the rules; and let’s face it, challenging the rules only makes things HOTTER.

I truly enjoyed both of these main characters. Blade is the perfect combination of dangerously sexy but honest, trustworthy, Levi and Stetson wearing western hero. I love a man who protects his woman at all costs. Especially when the woman is like Brandy: strong and independent enough not to need his protection, but feminine and vulnerable enough to need HIM.

This action-packed thrill ride kept me glued to the pages, through all of the twists and turns and up until the unexpected conclusion. Add compelling and relatable characters, a touch of humor, plenty of danger and intrigue, and throw in sexual tension and heartfelt romance, and the result is this fantastic read.

“He groaned, clutching her tightly to his body, as she slid down onto his heat. She took all that he had to give. In return, she surrendered, completely. Never has she felt so close to another human being.

When they climaxed, the world spun in a beautiful kaleidoscope of warmth and joy.


Blade blew out a suppressed breath and kissed her neck. Sighed into her hair. Her chest still ached, but no pain pills could stop the kind of hurt burrowing into her core. She wanted something she couldn’t have. She wanted to trust someone other than herself. She wanted that elusive thing called love.

*I received a complimentary of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.




Brandy’s trigger finger twitched. A bead of sweat tickled its way down her backbone. She was inexperienced, off duty, and miles from her truck, which sat near a trailhead in the mountainous wilderness of northern Idaho, and the intruder she held at gunpoint probably had seventy muscled pounds on her. 

 She studied the cowboy’s sweet-as-honey, wicked-as-sin smile through the sights of her department-issued Remington semiautomatic rifle. From his pose on the rickety porch of the old log cabin, he assessed her right back. His full lips tugged across Crest-white teeth, exposing a small but sexy gap between his central incisors.

He tipped his head toward the jimmied-open window. “I know this looks bad, Ma’am, but I can explain,” he drawled out “Ma’am” again.

“Deputy Sheriff Brandy Wilcox. Keep your hands where I can see them.”    

“Brandy?” Impervious to the deputy sheriff title, he straightened and angled his dusty black Stetson over his forehead so the brim shadowed his cool-water eyes. “Name like that could make a man real thirsty.” 

Brandy had heard just about every come-on in the book, but never from a trespasser on the business end of her rifle. She calculated his over-confident grin, the twinkle in his eyes, the tilt of his head—blond curly hair no less. A sensual package that promised a ride on the wild side—if one was so inclined. Which she was not.

Yet something primal tugged deep in her stomach.

Bracing the Remington more firmly against her shoulder, she steadied her aim and revved up her grit. This guy was banking on his wild smile a little too heavily. What he needed was some taming.

“Okay, drop ‘em.”

When he lowered his arms, she said, “Not your hands, your pants.”

For several beats, he stared at her like he hadn’t heard.

“Lose your Levis,” she urged again. She had no desire to shoot him, but she didn’t have handcuffs on her and she wasn’t about to chance his getting away. If it came to a footrace, his long muscular legs could outrun her in a heartbeat. But he couldn’t get far stomping barefoot in his skivvies through the mountainous shale-scabbed terrain. Not that making a break for it was something she intended to let him try.

“Excuse me? You want me to strip?” A trill of elation noticeably brightened his whisky-smooth voice. His expression bounced between “this is my lucky day” and disbelief.

“You got it. And while you’re at it, you can get rid of the shirt too.”

The fine lines defining his too-blue eyes crinkled as his expression turned sultry, and charisma dripped off his broad shoulders like summer rain over mountain granite.

Charisma, hell. That would get him exactly nowhere with her. “Necessary precaution. I wouldn’t want you trying to mosey off.” Not before she could engage an on-duty deputy to make an arrest.

She may have looked as young and inexperienced as she was, but she was physically and mentally tougher than her feminine five-foot-four frame suggested. She could outshoot and outthink every cadet in her graduating class at the police academy.

Revenge had a way of empowering a woman.

Despite her upbringing, she’d beaten the odds. She was making something of herself, and she wasn’t about to be intimidated by this guy and his toothpaste poster-boy smile, nor the blond, sweat-soaked curls straggling across his collar. Or the pumped biceps stretching the fabric of his shirtsleeves.

“I’m still waiting.”

“You’re serious?” He eyed the lettering on her I’m a Redneck Woman T-shirt, a fifty-cent find at Goodwill. “I usually like to get to know a woman a little before taking my clothes off and having a good time.” The dazzle of his smile cranked the charisma meter several notches higher.

“I can assure you, you won’t be having a good time.” Smart ass.

“That’s debatable. I’m already enjoying this more than you can imagine.”

Too eagerly, his fingers began tugging open his shirt buttons, revealing a deep triangle of bronzed skin dusted with tawny chest hair. More sun-kissed eye candy than she was ready to cope with.

As he slid buttons through buttonholes, her gaze skidded to a stop on abs honed like corrugated steel. She tore her glance upward only to meet those unnerving eyes, speckles of light glinting in the azure pools.

As he reached for the fastener on the waistband of his slim-fit 510’s, the heat blooming on Brandy’s cheeks slid south. Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea after all. Still, he couldn’t run far in his underwear. Seconds ticked by. Golden sunbeams gleamed off beads of sweat on muscles she didn’t really want to notice, but her attention was completely captured by the liquid heat trickling down his chest. She worked harder to convince herself the quiver in her gut came from adrenaline not feminine hormones. At any moment, her survival instincts and training would take over and stop this ridiculous sensual reaction to him. “Turn around and take off your boots.”

“My boots?” The first sign of indignation crept into his voice. “Brandy, Honey, I think you’re making a big mistake. Did you ever hear of fairness in apprehension?”

“You sound experienced.” Obviously, this wasn’t his first tangle with the law. “Have you heard of justification of lethal force? Consider yourself lucky that I didn’t shoot first and ask questions later. Now turn around and get to work on those boots.”

“What about my Miranda rights? Or the proposition that a man’s innocent until proven guilty?” he asked even as he followed orders and pivoted, presenting her with a view of his equally impressive backside.

But rather than shucking off his well-worn snakeskin Justins, he removed his shirt and slowly slid his belt through the loops, making a sensual striptease out of the movements.

The cotton fabric of Brandy’s T-shirt dampened, and her concentration started to wane. Not because the temperature was flirting with triple digits and the August sun had bullied every cloud from the sky. The blame rested on blue eyes that had messed with her thermostat.

She cleared her throat. “The arresting officer will read you your rights. For now, I’d get to work on those boots if I were you.”

 “You want to separate me from my boots, you’re going to have to do it yourself.” His back still to her, he planted his scuffed heels firmly on the cabin’s splintered porch boards and glanced over his shoulder.

“On the other hand, if you’re really interested in seeing what’s under my jeans, I’m all yours, Honey. I do love a redneck woman.” 

Her heart hammered against the fabric of the particular T-shirt she wished she hadn’t selected that morning, which was clinging to her chest like shrink wrap. The Gretchen Wilson song title had made her laugh out loud when she’d come across the tee on the bargain table at the Goodwill store, and because it was a ridiculously outrageous tag for Brandy Wilcox, she’d bought it as a joke.

As she pondered her purchase mistake of the year, wind-tossed grit scratched her throat. Expelling a slow, controlled breath, she dipped into the pocket of her jeans for her cell phone. “You have the right to remain silent in the face of any questions that might be put to you.” With hardly a waver in her voice, she added, “Do you understand?”

For untold sun-blistered seconds, he exercised his right to remain silent. She steadied the rifle, her finger alongside the trigger, and flipped her phone open with her free hand. Glanced down to read the screen. The blank, dead screen.

In the pristine silence, the sound of a zipper rasped.

Lord. Way too much sinewy, masculine muscle made her insides twist. The heat index rose to equator level. Before Mr. Totally Ripped revealed the answer to the age old question “boxers or briefs,” Brandy choked out, “Hold it right there.”

Jeans hanging low on his hips, he swiveled and faced her. “So, Brandy, what are you doing roaming around out here all by yourself?”

She narrowed her eyes and tightened her grip on the rifle. “Maintaining my sharp-shooter’s status.”

A muscle in his cheek twitched. “Maybe you should put down that rifle before you accidentally kill someone. Namely me. It would be ill advised for a deputy to shoot a suspect merely on probable cause. That could get said deputy in a lot of trouble. Guaranteed.”

“If I take you down, Mister, it won’t be any accident, and it won’t necessarily kill you.”

His tongue played sexily over the sweat collecting on the indentation above his upper lip. “You’re that good, huh?”

Double entendre intended—she was sure. Definitely too sexy for his Stetson.

“Good enough to put a hole in your hat and a crease in your skull without turning you into a pulseless, non-breathing suspect. I don’t think you want to chance that. It would smart a whole lot. Guaranteed.”

“That’s some mighty big talk for such a little lady.” The grin that tilted the corner of his mouth irritated more than intimidated her.

 “A little lady with a big gun that could put a crease just about anywhere I choose.” She lowered the barrel of the rifle and set her aim in the vicinity of his zipper. “That’d smart a whole lot more. Absolutely guaranteed.”

It warmed her heart when he came to his senses and reined in his smile.

About the Author:


Mal Olson writes adrenaline kicked romantic suspense. She enjoys skydiving, ski jumping, SCUBA, hang gliding, big wave surfing, car racing, mountain climbing—that is, vicariously through her characters, who are always kick-ass, and often boss her around rather than allowing her to spin her stories the way she intends. (She did, however, personally engage in zip lining this past summer.)

Her debut novel Shadow of Deceit, released by The Wild Rose Press in 2012, is an edge of the seat romantic suspense-thriller set in Milwaukee and parts of northern Wisconsin. A couple of her favorite reviews came from Beverly at The Wormhole, who said, “Wow! This one has it all! Non-stop action, hot and sexy characters, betrayal, smokin’ romance, and a thrilling plot–” and Gothic Mom’s Book Review, which stated, “In the 150+ books that I read per year, there are very few that receive a five star rating. Shadow of Deceit did just that. Non stop action, sexual tension, an adventure that had me on the edge of my seat…A fantastic book that had me from page one…”

Olson also offers two short stories. Danger Zone, which has spent months in the Kindle top 100 free romantic suspense category, is a guaranteed fifteen minute pulse pounder where two strangers survive a rock ‘n roll landing on an icy Milwaukee runway and chase a could-be terrorist into the danger zone. Me and Brad, a feel good romance, features an irresistible K-9 and was ranked in the Kindle free top 100 list for months in the Contemporary Romance category.

About the Book:



Book One in The Dark Hart Chronicles

By: Alexandra Anthony

When personal assistant Savannah Wood lands a dream job with up and coming rock star Nick Hart, it seems too good to be true. He’s devastatingly handsome, reserved and charming…but he has a secret he’s determined to keep.

Their attraction to one another is immediate and Savannah is determined to keep a professional relationship between them. She’s been burned before and has no desire to reopen old wounds.

The lines between professional and personal begin to blur when Savannah finds out Nick’s secret: he’s a century old vampire with a painful past. He’s also hesitant to open himself up to her, yet they find their temptation to one another is stronger than either can resist.

The paparazzi, a string of murders and cryptic, ominous letters threaten their budding relationship. Will their attraction and love be enough to keep them together…or will it tear them apart?

*This is an erotic, romantic book. It contains sexy vampires, graphic language, adult content and situations that aren’t for the faint of heart. Consider yourself warned.*





My Review:


My Rating: 5 Big Stars!

“His voice tapered off and the intensity between us hummed. His fingertips inched closer until they brushed against my wrist softly. The moment our skin met, a jolt of scorching desire darted through me. I’d never had this sort of response to a man’s touch before. It was exhilarating… and equally terrifying.”

And this is only the first touch… it only gets hotter from here.

Here it is: I am utterly, devastatingly, and hopelessly in love (AND LUST!) with Nick Hart. Not only is he a devilishly handsome and sexy rock star, complete with a body to die for, an illuminating smile, wit, charm, and even humility, he is a vampire. A dark, possessive, yet emotionally vulnerable, in touch with his humanity, sexually brilliant vampire. Here’s my incredibly difficult dilemma: he is hopelessly, head-over-heels in love with Savannah Wood; and she is perfect for him. Beautiful, smart, cheeky, with equal parts toughness and vulnerability, and an amazingly easy acceptance of Nick’s dangerous, immortal nature, I certainly don’t stand a chance. A girl can dream right? Oh, and I will…

“His fingers gripped my chin softly, looking me in the eyes. ‘Honestly, I don’t give a shit what anyone thinks. I’m tired of playing around because I want to know every inch of you. And once I know it, I want to learn it all over again. Repeatedly and frequently.’ “

I loved this book. I absolutely can not get enough of Nick and Savannah. I relished in the evolution of their relationship; the initial slow build fraught with electric sexual tension, the first touches, the fantastic first sexual explorations. When Nick’s condition comes to light, it gets much more intense. Extreme emotion and trust come to the forefront as the couple fights to break down their barriers and come to terms with what is quickly becoming undeniable: they love each other and can not live without one another. And through it all, the sex only gets HOTTER! These two are so hot together, and the scenes have so many layers: fantastically erotic, emotionally intense, and unforgettable.

“I could do anything to you like this… you look so fucking beautiful. You’re completely at my mercy.”

Though I was totally engrossed in Nick and Savannah’s consuming relationship, throughout the book there is the undercurrent of an outside threat. Just as the danger is named, the book ends and I realize this story is just beginning, and I am absolutely desperate for more.

“So I’m telling you I love you. And I fucking need you. I want you here with me, Savannah. I don’t want us to be apart. Ever.”

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
