New Release ~ 4 Stars for Wicked Games by Kel Carpenter!

Title: Wicked Games
Series: Queen of the Damned #2
Author: Kel Carpenter
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2018

 

So…as it turns out, I really am Lucifer’s Daughter. Hell’s Heir. And—you guessed it—the next Queen of the Damned.

 


But what if I don’t want to rule?

With the imp in hiding, and Josh gone from this world, I still wasn’t safe. Not by a long shot. Dear ol’ Dad didn’t just pass on his legacy and mark. He also passed on all of Hell’s problems, and that means his enemies, are now mine.

Fortunately for me, I have the Four Horsemen, my banshee best friend, and a pissed off raccoon on my side.

But now I have the beast to contend with. My psychotic, possessive, and downright scary alter-ego was dead set on having the Horsemen, not only at my back, but in my bed. As if learning to control the flames of Hell wasn’t a hard enough job by itself.

Would it have been too hard for Lucifer to write a handbook before he died?

My Review

4 Stars!

Wicked Games picks up where Lucifer’s Daughter left off, with Ruby in danger. The action picks up but the romance slows down. After reading the first book, I was having a hard time finding the whole reverse harem thing (which I’m not a fan of, by the way), but it is more than evident in Wicked Games. However, it’s a bit angsty and, while hot, it is slow to develop. The Four Horsemen protect Ruby and there are definite feelings of some kind burning between them, but there is no resolution in this book. We’ll have to wait for the next book for more.

The writing is very good. The story is unique and interesting, not something I’ve read over and over like some paranormal romances. Again, I’m not a huge fan of the whole reverse harem thing, but I can admit it works in this situation.

I am looking forward to reading the next book and highly recommend this series as a whole. (This is not a standalone)

She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

Blog Tour ~ 5 Stars for Chaser by Kylie Scott!

 

 

 

Chaser (1)Given his well-earned bad boy reputation, Eric is having a tough time scoring.. When single Jean moves to town, she seems heaven sent by the sex gods. Only problem is, she not only wants nothing to do with him, but it turns out that she’s pregnant.

Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric Collins, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labour during a snow storm and her car slides on some ice, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.

There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?

 

 

My Review

5 Stars!

This book! This freaking book! I am completely enamored with Eric! This book gave me all the feels and then some.

I have to be honest here. I have never read a book where I have felt so much for a character. In the previous books in the Dive Bar series, Eric has been portrayed as the irresponsible playboy, which he was. There is no question about that. However, the loss of his unborn child affected him more than he let on. So, now, Eric gets is book and his story is told and my God it was so so so good!

So, I get that Eric is this playboy, all arrogant and irresponsible, but his friends and family’s lack of faith in him was cringeworthy. Seriously, Nell was a straight up B to him, about him and behind his back. I kind of wanted to punch her face. The entire book is told from Eric’s POV and being in his head is both difficult and amazing. He is complex and yet simple and I just felt for him so much.

This entire series has been great, but this book stands out as a shining star! I dare you not to fall in love with Eric!

“The only thing more humiliating than a guy falling asleep face-down in my crotch would be if he died there… Oh my god, is he DEAD?”

All I wanted was little old-fashioned romance. After a parade of Tinder disasters who think chivalry is giving me a pearl necklace on the first date, I made a pledge: until guys step up their game, this girl is off the market.

But one bottle of chardonnay later, and my drunken rant has gone viral. I’m the most famous person NOT having sex since the Jonas Brothers put on their purity rings. A men’s magazine has even put a bounty on my (ahem) maidenhead: fifty Gs to whoever makes me break the drought.

Be careful what you wish for… Now my office looks like an explosion in a Hallmark factory, I’ve got guys lining up to sweep me off my feet – and the one man I want is most definitely off-limits. Jake Weston is a player through and through. He’s also the only one who sees through the mayhem to the real me, but how can I trust he’s not just out to claim the glory?

And how will I make it through the strike without scratching the itch – especially when that itch looks so damn good out of his suit?

The thrill of the chaste has never been so sexy in the hilarious, hot new romantic read.

About the CSA Case Files Series

Crest Security Agency (CSA) is run by Gavin Crest, a retired Marine Master Sergeant. He has personally selected his own former military team members, both men and women, to configure a seamless Special Operations Capable (SOC) unit. Working together on investigations, domestically and abroad, each team member will find their niche in life and love.

About Captured Innocence (CSA Case Files #1)

Be captivated by this USA Today Bestseller and drawn into a world filled with passion and intrigue!

When former Marine, Connor Ortega, was ordered into the offices of Crest Security Agency on a Saturday morning, he didn’t expect the latest case to hit so close to home. A submissive has been murdered in a particularly vicious manner and to bring her killer to justice, he must go undercover. Not hard to do considering he’s already part of the BDSM lifestyle.

Lauren Bailey, a local vendor of bejeweled erotic implements, lives vicariously through her clients due to her fear of bondage. When Connor’s dominant side can’t resist trying to ease her anxieties, she accepts his proposal and agrees to his one stipulation…keep things casual.

When the killer sets his sights on Lauren, Connor is forced to rethink their relationship. He has the training it takes to catch a murderer, but does he have the courage to escape his inner demons and capture Lauren’s heart?

About SINFUL RESURRECTION (CSA Case Files #2)

The USA Today Bestselling series continues with a breathless tale of sin, intrigue, and love…

Sins of the past have been resurrected, predetermining their path to love. Can they overcome the treacherous obstacles set before them?

Jax Christensen likes his life just the way it is. He has his work, his club, and the occasional naked submissive to take his mind off everything else. He doesn’t talk about the past, as there is no point in reminiscing about things that cannot be altered. His chest has an empty hole where his heart used to be, but he’s grown accustomed to the constant pain. It’s become the only thing that reminds Jax that he’s alive.

Emily Weiss has never forgotten the one and only man she’s ever loved. She’s hidden for two long years in an attempt to protect Jax and herself, desperate to try and stay one step ahead of those who want her dead. She has information that could destroy the United Nations. Unfortunately, they want to eliminate her first. Emily’s exhausted and wants more than anything to feel safe once more. That was how she felt in Jax’s strong arms and she longs to be there again.

When Jax sees that Emily has risen from the grave, his heart and soul are full of anger and regret. He’ll never forgive her lies and deception. He will, however, keep her safe. He hates her for what she’s done, but he doesn’t want her death on his conscience. He’ll protect her and then walk away.

Secrets are revealed and the danger is more sinister and deadly than anyone could have guessed. Jax and Emily are forced on the run and the passion they once felt for one another burns even hotter and brighter the second time around. Jax doesn’t know how he’ll walk away this time or if he even wants to. Emily is determined to expose a high-level official within the United Nations and walk away unscathed. She wants a second chance with her first love — even if it kills her.

About RENEWED FAITH (CSA Case Files #3)

Is it possible to renew one’s faith in love? Find out as the CSA Case Files series continues with another gripping tale of passion and intrigue…

Injury ended former Marine Kevin Dreier’s enlistment much too soon, leaving him with unwanted pins and screws in his right leg to serve as a constant reminder of what he’d lost. Being a team member of Crest Security Agency, however, gives him a sense of purpose and accomplishment. The determination that makes him good at his job is the same drive he’ll need to win over the woman he wants in his life.

Taking charge of her destiny, Elle Reyes has spent the last year working hard to make something of herself. She’s found a reputable place to live, saved a little money, and even secured a managing position at a club. She’s finally safe, content, and in need of nothing more, but she knows she wouldn’t have been able to turn her life around without Kevin’s assistance.

When Kevin loses a family member, Elle is convinced this is her chance of returning a favor and repaying a debt. Accompanying him to visit his family and offer support, she is faced with the reality that warm and loving homes are real. She’s torn between what she knows to be the truth and the tempting hope that something more exists.

Upon their return, Kevin’s current case crosses paths with Elle’s past. Secrets and lies encircle them as a killer ups the stakes in a cat and mouse game meant for only one winner. When time runs out, Kevin intends to be the last man standing — in life and love.

About CAMPAIGN OF FAITH (CSA Case Files #4)

Political campaigns don’t always go as planned…

Lach McKinnon, a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team Leader, was involved in a highly publicized and politically sensitive mission that went critically wrong. He has always taken responsibility for the three lives lost, though he keeps his guilt locked away. Becoming a team member of CSA has relieved him of similar assignments, however things haven’t really been mundane.

Phoebe Dunaway is a United States Senator’s daughter. She can be relied on to do what is expected of her. From raising her sister after their mother died to overseeing her mother’s legacy foundation, Phoebe has steadfastly been the responsible one in the family. Now aiding her father in his quest for the presidency, she finally realizes that ignoring her own needs might not be in her best interests.

Lach is given a VIP Personal Security Detail — protect Phoebe from a potential threat against her father’s bid for the White House.

Unexpected danger lurks around every corner and Lach must face his past demons if he has any hope of keeping Phoebe safe.

About RADIANT SURRENDER (CSA Case Files #6)

USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne delivers a riveting story about love evolving from the darkness…

The darkness within…

Gavin Crest has always pushed himself to the limit. After twenty-three years as a Marine Master Sergeant, he built his security agency from the ground up. He also has a predilection for the darker side of sex. He’s done it all–except the one woman he can’t have, an innocent who deserves more than a man whose soul is tainted with darkness.

Becomes his only ray of sunshine…

Jessie Miller has worked for Gavin Crest for years–and loved him nearly that long. She offered herself to him, body and soul. When he refused, she walked away, head held high and vowing to cut him from her heart. So why is Gavin on her doorstep, insisting that she trust him with her life?

And leads him into the light…

After a cold-blooded killer who’s threatened his team members proves the FBI has enough evidence to put Jessie in jail for the rest of her life, Crest has no choice but to save her. Once he’s with her, he can’t keep his hands off her. As passion rises and a killer closes in, he’ll have to prove her innocence, protect her, and risk his heart forever…before it’s too late.

About REDEEM MY HEART (CSA Case Files #7)

USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne has concluded the CSA Case Files series with a redemption story unlike any other…

Nightmares of the past…

Ryland had lived his life as the world’s most sought-after assassin by numerous clandestine government agencies. He’s been the best of the best while not making apologies for the contracts he’s executed. That was all taken from him when his obscured past was exposed by the malicious actions of a former employer, forcing him into an early retirement.

Dreams of the future…

Fallon Canna was a gifted profiler for the FBI with one goal–to figure out what made Travis Bowers tick. It had become an obsession to unravel why a promising young Marine had turned into a skilled killer for hire. Her fixation becomes personal when a piece of classified information crosses her desk that just might shed light on why Travis Bowers became known as the notorious Ryland.

Restoring reality…

Ryland has done his best to blend in with society, but it’s a punishment worse than death. He’s been passing the time of his seclusion with visions of a beautiful blonde who only wants inside of his mind, so he’s skeptical when Fallon suddenly appears in his kitchen in the dead of night. He’s more than willing to see where their attraction takes them, but there’s an unspoken inquiry in those blue eyes of hers that could only end in heartbreak–because a woman can’t redeem a man who doesn’t have a soul.

Read an excerpt from LIE TO ME

Wednesday rolls around way too fast. I have a whole evening with Savannah. It’s been really nice these past four days that she’s been out of my life. Yet, the whole time, I’ve been craving the way we snip at each other.

I need help.

I cut my engine outside her building and look up. Apparently, she lives up on the first floor and faces out toward the road.

Is she looking at me right now?

Why I feel the need to get out and buzz her apartment, I don’t know, but somehow, I find myself getting out of the car and walking toward the building. I stop at the front door, realising that Heidi told me what floor Savannah is on but not the number. Or she might have told me, and I just didn’t listen.

This is a great start.

I’m about to call my sister when I see Savannah through the glass, walking down the stairs to ground level.

Fuck me.

Has she always looked like that?

She’s wearing a pair of dark blue skinny jeans and a grey off-the-shoulder shirt, but she looks sexier than any other woman I’ve ever seen in a little dress.

Why don’t I like her again?

Her steely eyes, looking even more prominent with the colour of her top, warily eye me. Our last encounter wasn’t exactly pleasant.

She opens the door and smiles. “Hi, Kent.”

My back stiffens. “Savannah.”

“Are you sure you don’t mind taking me tonight? I can Uber.”

And there it is. This is why she fucking bothers me so much. I feel like telling her to call a fucking Uber then. She always sounds so unsure of herself, like every tiny thing a person does for her is some massive inconvenience. Why?

“It’s fine,” I spit.

She folds her arms, carefully because her fractured arm hasn’t healed. It does take away a little of the dramatic flair she was going for. “Do you need to take a nap before we go?”

“What?”

“You’re cranky.”

“You’re too polite.”

“Being polite is a bad thing?”

I flex my jaw. “Yes.”

“Fine. Get in the car, and take me.”

The intent behind her words is clear; however, I hear it completely different and laugh.

She rolls her eyes. “Don’t be a knobhead, Kent. Take me to your parents’ house, I mean.”

“Knobhead. I’ve not heard that one in a while.”

Savannah takes another long breath. “I really don’t know why I thought accepting a lift from you would be a good idea. In fact, I didn’t. I stillthink it’s a bad idea.”

“You always follow through with bad ideas?”

“Tonight, I am.”

Fuck yeah. I love this fighting side of her. It’s like, when I rile her up enough, the cover slips, revealing the real Savannah. I’m not sure if she’s hiding something the way Freya was.

“You should work on that. I don’t do anything I don’t want to.”

She tilts her head to the side, fire and determination in her eyes. “Oh, you wanted me to come tonight? And you wanted to be the one to pick me up?”

“You’re hot when you’re angry, Savannah.”

Actually, she’s hot all the time. It’s just, right now, she’s the whole package.

“You always use bullshit like that to deflect from someone calling you out?”

“You’re the first woman to call me out.”

“Why doesn’t that surprise me?” she mutters.

“Do you want to argue on your doorstep all night or get to my parents’ for dinner? I’m cool with either, just checking to see which way you’re leaning.”

She drops her arms, one still bound tightly in a splint. “I’m hungry.”

“Excellent, let’s go then.”

Review Tour ~ 4 Stars for Needing Him by Kennedy Fox!

 

 

 

 

Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor.
Hardass, brooding, and all business.

Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor.
He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor.

Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night.

After all, some rules are made to be broken.

They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning.

*A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!*
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.

My Review

4 Stars!

The sparks they are a flyin’ when brooding Evan Bishop meets his match when he crosses paths with ER doc, Emily. The Bishop Brothers series just keeps getting better.

This was a really good book. Evan Bishop is the eldest Bishop brother, a true Southern gentleman and a sexy as sin physician. Unfortunately, outside of his family, his job is his life. Emily attends Evan’s brother’s wedding with a friend. She meets Evan, they flirt, she uses a fake name, one thing leads to another and it’s all good because it’s one night and they won’t see each other again. Right? Wrong.

I enjoyed everything about the book. The characters, the story, all of it just sort of sucked me in and kept me flipping pages until the end. And what a great ending it was!

You really want to get to know Evan Bishop!

I won’t let him manipulate me with sex. He must not be that smart if he thinks that’s actually going to work. I said those things in the heat of the moment and because I really needed to fucking come, but that doesn’t mean I meant it. Hell, I would’ve told him the sky was purple if that meant he’d give me what I needed.

 

Regardless, that was really damn hot. The way I yelled at him, and he yelled back, and then we just attacked each other. Every moment of our first night together has replayed in my head since it happened, but now… angry Evan is the one who will haunt me in my dreams. Angry Evan is hot and demanding and knows just how to tease the fuck out of me. I almost hate him for it. Except I could never hate a man who knows how to worship my body like he does.

 

But God, does he really have to be such a controlling asshole?

 

I scoop my scrubs and shoes off the floor and adjust my just-fucked hair. Once my top is on, I search for my panties. When I don’t find them on the floor, I shake out my scrub bottoms, but they aren’t there either. What the fuck?

 

Panic starts to surface at the realization that I lost my damn panties. Shit, shit, shit.

 

My pager beeps, and it’s painfully obvious I’m going to have to put my pants on without them. Quickly, I finish getting dressed and push my shoes on before grabbing my lab coat and the soiled shirt and flying out the door.

 

I throw Evan’s shirt in the trash before anyone can see me and ask questions.

 

Rushing to the nurses’ station for an update, I look around but don’t see any commotion or people scrambling like normal. “What’s going on? You paged me?” I ask, trying to catch my breath.

 

Fiona looks at me like I’ve gone crazy. She swallows and lowers her eyes before bringing them back up to look at me. She witnessed the heated argument back in the trauma room, and now she looks uncomfortable as hell. “Dr. Bishop asked me to page you. He wanted me to tell you that your break is over and to get back to work.” I can tell she’s uneasy delivering the news, but that doesn’t stop the anger from brewing inside me.

 

The vein in my forehead is about to burst, but I remind myself to play it cool. For all they knew, Evan sent me on the break to calm down, and now I’m the one looking like a slacker.

 

“Okay. Thanks.” I pinch my lips together to prevent any further words from spewing out of me. No one can know that Evan and I are…whatever the hell we are. Considering I came to this hospital to make a name for myself all on my own, the last thing I need is people thinking I sleep my way to the top.

 

Crap.

 

“Dr. Bell,” Evan barks from the other side of the room. He’s holding a pile of charts in his hands that are no doubt from the huge fire incident that just unfolded.

 

Taking a deep breath, I put my lab coat on and dig my stethoscope from the pocket and wrap it around my neck. We have to act impartially to each other publicly, but hell, I didn’t realize how hard it’d be now that we’re together.

 

“Yes, Dr. Bishop?”

 

He doesn’t even look up at me when I approach him, and I hate that it irritates me.

 

“I need you on beds seven through fifteen until the next shift rotation, then finish these charts before you leave.” His head tilts up, his lips in a firm line as he piles the stack in my arms. “I also need an update on the Brauer kids once an hour.”

 

Swallowing, I adjust the charts in my arms to prevent them from falling. I won’t let my pride get in the way of doing my job, and if charts are what I need to do right now, then I won’t make a scene. At least not in front of everyone. However, once we’re alone, I’m going to give him a piece of my mind for treating me like a damn intern again.

 

“Absolutely. Anything else, sir?” My tone is laced with fake sweetness, and he doesn’t flinch a beat at it.

 

“Yes, actually.” He takes a step forward and dips his head until his mouth hovers over my ear. “Make sure those charts are done correctly before you leave. I’ll be looking through them extensively.”

 

“Of course.” I grind my teeth, wishing I could give him a piece of my mind right now.

 

“And since I know you’re going commando, I won’t ask you to perform any oral procedures.” He winks before walking away, making my blood boil.

 

That asshole stole my panties!

Cover Reveal ~ Arrogant Devil by R.S. Grey!

Are you ready for ARROGANT DEVIL? We are so excited to reveal the cover of this next release from R.S. Grey! Check it out below!

 

 

About ARROGANT DEVIL (available May 10th)

Everyone in Cedar Creek, Texas, knows Jack McNight is an arrogant devil. Physically, I get it: he’s tan and fit, with coal-black hair that’s clearly been scorched by hellfire. Oh, and his personality? It burns just as hot.

When I show up on the doorstep of Blue Stone Ranch, I’m run-down and rockin’ my last pair of underwear. I’m hoping for a savior, but instead, I find him.

My opinion of Jack is marred by a dismal first impression, but his opinion of me is tainted even before I arrive. He’s heard I’m a spoiled princess there to take advantage of his goodwill. To him, I’m more trouble than I’m worth.

Our button-pushing banter should get under my skin. His arrogance should be a major turn-off. Problem is, devils are known to offer their own form of temptation.

Every one of his steely glares sends a shiver down my spine.

Every steamy encounter leaves me reeling.

Sure, it could be the Texas heat messing with my head, but there’s no way I’ll survive the summer without silencing him with a kiss and wrestling him out of those Wranglers.

Who knows…going to bed with the devil might just be the salvation I’ve been looking for all along.

My Review

4 stars!

Being a teenager is hard. As a teenage girl, being friends with a teenage boy is never, ever easy. AJ and Evan’s story is emotional, angsty and engaging. Told in dual POV and alternating between past and present. If you have read my reviews, you know that is definitely not my favorite story-telling style. Although, Len Webster did a pretty good job with it without overdoing it. She used it as a plot driver to give us a better understanding of the dynamic between AJ and Evan and what led to the betrayal.

This was not a quick read, but then none of Webster’s books are. There was plenty of emotion and angst. I enjoyed the characters of AJ and Evan and their story was good. I am excited to see how their story continues. Oh, did I mention this is not a standalone? Don’t get all crazy-like, the book is good enough that it will leave you wanting more.
