Rock has watched Adele Sparks for some time now. She’s a cleaner, and there’s not one thing he doesn’t know about her. Anyone who comes to his clubhouse, he has checked out, and she’s squeaky clean. Adele’s not like any woman he’s ever known. She doesn’t try to flirt with him, nor does she judge the club. He wants the curvy cleaner, and he’s going to have her.

Adele likes Rock, the impressive Prez of the MC that she works for. She’s overheard the women talking about him and what he can do in the bedroom, but she doesn’t believe it. After all, she’s been married before, and the only orgasms she’s experienced were at her own hand.

Then Rock tells her what he wants. He wants her naked. He wants her thighs wrapped around his waist as he takes her hard. Pleasure like she has never known is within reach.

But can she keep her heart in check? After all, there’s no way a man like Rock will want forever—or will he?

Sam Crescent does it again with The Biker’s Desire, the sixth book in her fabulous Curvy Women Wanted series.

I loved the characters in this one. Rock took me by surprise. For a big bad biker he was really sweet and funny. The best thing about Rock was how he wasn’t afraid to show his feelings for Adele. Now, I always end up falling in love with the, let’s just call them anti heroes, that Sam Crescent brings to life in her books. Let’s face it, though. Most of them get off to a rocky start, but not so much with Rock. I fell in love with him on the first page. He really was my dream man. Adele was great too. She started off as a strong woman and remained that way for the entire story. I like it when the heroine knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to say it.

I loved how richly the characters were described in this book. It helped to give them life in my imagination. Sam Crescent kept the drama low in this well put together plot with only a few tense moments in the plot. I liked that aspect since it left more pages for the sexy times that this author happens to write so well. It’s a hot story that was engaging and very well written, as well.

Damian Denton lost the mother of his child because he could never love her. That guilt won’t go away, and he can feel it eating away at his soul no matter what he does. His only hope is to find someone deadly enough to kill him.

Mia Banks doesn’t want to ask Ivan, the father of her child, for help, but she has no choice. If she wants to survive, she will have to beg him. But when a man crashes into Ivan’s office, her life changes forever.

The moment Damian sees the beautiful Mia, he knows without a doubt that she belongs to him. Taking Mia and her son away, Damian is determined to do everything different. He’s not going to scare Mia with who he is or who his family is.

But with the revelation of a secret brother the Dentons are no longer united. They are separated, and that makes them weak. There is someone waiting to rid the world of Dentons for good, with this fresh danger, can Damian keep Mia and their children safe?

I was captivated with this fourth book in the Denton Family Legacy. Sam Crescent did a good job in spinning this page turning story.

There was a lot happening in this romantic but lively plot that kept my attention. Damian Denton had been spiralling downward since the mother of his child took her own life in a previous book. All of that changed when he met Mia and fell in love with her on the spot. This book also found the Denton family in turmoil and facing the biggest trial of the series, so far. The story was sexy and super suspenseful with some big twists for the series. There was a lot of dialogue from Gabriel and Gideon and even Uncle Rick who turned out to be an actual bad arse. I can’t wait to see who gets the next book!

When Marley Richards finally finds her way into Andy Calhoun’s bed for one unforgettable night, it was everything she’d ever fantasized about, right up until he spoke four little words that shattered her dreams. “It was only sex.” He also gave her more than a broken heart.

Marley was the one that got away, but when Andy discovers the secret she holds, he begs her to let him back into her life. However, Marley has a list of demands for Liberty Spring’s Sheriff, starting with cooked breakfasts, foot rubs, and unreciprocated orgasms. While meeting Marley’s demands, Andy discovers the simple pleasures of laughter, fun, and holding his woman close.

But someone in Liberty Springs doesn’t want Marley and Andy together. A string of incidents place both Marley and the dreams Andy is building around her in mortal danger. Andy must keep Marley safe, continue to win her heart, and find who the culprit is before it’s too late.

Kaliana Cole added another great Liberty Springs novel with The One That Got Away.

This book had everything! It was easy to get pulled into the mystery of this plot. A real romance had been brewing between Andy and Marley for a long time. Just when the future was finally looking bright for the couple it became obvious that someone was still out to get Marley. That’s when Andy had to take charge like the true alpha male he has been all along. Now, let me tell you, Kaliana Cole knows how to write a red hot love scene or two.

This book was right up my alley. It was exceptionally well written and loaded with a fast paced romance, exciting mystery, and some big surprises for everyone in the Liberty Springs world. Andy and Marley had plenty of emotional depth and like the previous couples in this kinky series there were a few BDSM scenes. This book also closed a long running thread about one Liberty Springs troublemaker while at the same time catching my interest with a couple of intriguing characters that I am hopeful will be getting their very own books.

I really enjoyed reading The One That Got Away and look forward to whatever comes next from this author.

Shaalon knows she made a mistake, but she never thought she’d be sacrificed to an alien. Thrust in a cell with a blood thirsty male of Xerra’s warrior class, she expects a terrible death. Bracing for the worse, she never expects to see hope in his eyes.

Cayylen wanted a warrior’s death, not the disgrace of an execution. With a single sun cycle left to him his last request is to fuck the daughter of his enemy. He never expects his request to be honored, but the moment he looks in Shaalon’s eyes he realizes she is his mate.

The strength he gains from finding his woman is enough for him to break free, but he refuses to let her go. War has been coming for a long time, but will taking his woman hostage be the tipping point the warriors need to fight the system trying to end their lines.

I enjoyed reading this short, but romantic and steamy, fantasy story.

At first it was the tense and seemingly hopeless romance that captured my attention in this book. I really liked the characters, Cayylen and Shaalon and the strength that they both had to stand up for the right things in life. It made them more easy to relate to as sometimes it can be hard for me to really connect with the characters in a novella. The author did a great job with pulling me into the story and not just with the sizzling sex. Another nice aspect is how some previous characters from this intriguing series had brief cameos in this one. That really grabbed my interest and had me wanting to read the other two books in this Sci-Fi / Fantasy world.

This book was a great short read that filled my afternoon with pleasure just reading it. It was a nice romantic, passionate and exciting story that flowed easily and left me interested in the coming war on planet Xerra. I loved the hope and romance that was at the heart of this story.

As for a quick fantasy romance I can recommend this novella to anyone.

Although he doesn’t understand why his brother chose to bond with a human female, Noah agrees to be the official cyborg witness at the birth of the cyborg/human couple’s first son. When he arrives on the human space station, he finds himself face to face with a female pilot, an unheard of occupation for a female on the cyborg home world of Terras Five. Hailey’s cute, she’s sassy, she’s sexy and she doesn’t automatically defer to him just because he’s male. Noah finds that combination irresistible.

After a night of amazing sex, Hailey heads off on a reconnaissance mission with her squadron, and Noah arranges to spend a little more time in the human world to get the sassy redhead out of his system. But when her ship goes missing, it’s up to Noah to use all the tricks of his cyborg heritage to track her down and rescue her.

Anne Kane captured my attention with this sexy Sci-Fi/Fantasy story.

Taming the Cyborg was a fast paced book that had me completely immersed in the plot that flowed smoothly from beginning to end. It was exciting and romantic with characters that I adored. Noah was a Cyborg who fell boots over heart in love with a sassy red haired human fighter pilot. Hailey was a spitfire who knew exactly what she wanted. I loved her strength and independent spirit. There was a romantic vibe when Noah immediately rushed off to save his little warrior woman. Of course, they had a few bumps to make it over but by the end of the story the author had me craving my very own bossy Cyborg to sweep me off of me feet.

I really enjoyed this short story and absolutely recommend it to anyone.

Humiliation burns through Zwyk as he comes to the realization his bride has left him standing alone at the altar. When something seems too good to be true, it usually is. He should have known someone as vivacious as his bride-to-be would never settle for a paper pushing, XBox playing geek like him. While his heart isn’t exactly broken, his pride is wounded, and his confidence has taken a hit.

Rory hates that she had to tell Zwyk her sister has run away instead of marrying him. Well, she hates the pain her sister caused. She can’t exactly say she’s sorry the wedding is off. Maybe now she can make Zwyk see what’s been right under his nose this entire time — her.

This was another great book in the Intergalactic Brides Series from Jessica Coulter Smith. Rory and the Alien Groom was a short, sweet and very sexy fantasy romance that had me captivated from page one until the end.

Zwyk was unlucky in love until his fiance left him standing at the alter on his wedding day. He finally met the love of his life and the perfect mate in Rory. She was the little sister of the runaway bride so naturally this caused him to hesitate about jumping right back into another romantic entanglement. Luckily for him Rory didn’t have the same qualms. She was already halfway in love with the sexy purple alien. She just had to convince Zwyk to give their relationship a chance. Their romance hit a few snags here and there but Rory was persistent until Zwyk finally realized how short life can be and decided to take another chance with Rory.

I sure did love this story. As usual, it was wonderfully written with engaging characters and an entertaining plot. I enjoyed the hot sex scenes but most of all I truly liked Rory and Zwyk. I love strong heroines who know what they want and go after it. In this case it was Rory who made the first move even though she was rather innocent. I loved her tenacity.

I must admit that I’ve never been all that interested in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre, but I’ve read every book in this series. Jessica Coulter Smith has become one of my favorite authors. I look forward to reading many more books in the Intergalactic Brides Series. So for what it’s worth I happily recommend this book, and the series, to everyone.

Zanar has made himself a home on Earth, where he owns Stardust Bar, popular with both aliens and humans. There’s only one thing missing from Zanar ‘s life. Despite his best efforts to impress the human females he meets, he’s still without a mate. At the age of twenty-six, it isn’t dire for him to pair off and start a family just yet, but he’s lonely and ready to settle down. The last thing he expects is for Celeste to come into his life and turn it upside down.

Celeste is back on Earth, after having been abducted by an alien race five years ago. She’s spent those years as a slave on the planet Vaaden, where she had a precious daughter with her owner, Pynder. But when Pynder dies suddenly, his parents swoop in and snatch Sophie from Celeste’s arms before banishing her from their world. Celeste will do anything to get her daughter back, but falling in love with a bartender — or anyone else — was never part of the plan.

This was a great Sci-Fi/ Fantasy romance. The way that Jessica Coulter Smith was able to bring the characters to life in my imagination had me hanging on every word until the end.

The best part of this short romance was the emotions and amazing characters. I loved Zanar the sexy alien bartender. He was just so sweet and really cared about Celeste and her daughter. Zanar won my affection right away. I liked Celeste very much because she was strong and easy to relate to. This author always does an awesome job on the world building by giving her characters some real life struggles to overcome. For Celeste it was starting all over after being held captive for five years on an alien planet. She never let adversity define her and didn’t want to be seen as a victim. Yet even with her incredible grit and determination, it would’ve difficult for her to get her daughter back had it not been for Zanar.

I am a huge fan of this author’s writing. Her creativity and world building is exceptional. I adored Zanar and Celeste, and loved the small cameos from some of previous couples in the Intergalactic Brides series. Lastly, I loved the naughty sex scenes. Those are always a bonus for me.

This sexy fantasy romp had just about everything needed to make it a fantastic reading experience for this happy reader.

Vampire and werewolf loathe each other. The only thing they agree on is that Tempest is their mate–and they’re not sharing.

A prophecy will force Tempest, a twenty-first-century witch, to choose between them. As the half-brothers vie to win her heart, they teach her about spanking, the way pain heightens pleasure, and the ecstasy of multiple orgasms.

A vampire can’t survive without his fated bride. A werewolf dies if he loses his mate. Their future rests in Tempest’s hands. Which one will she choose?

I loved this great paranormal menage book!

I’ve recently become a devoted reader of Kryssie Fortune’s books. This one is is a stand alone story although it is connected to the Scattered Siblings series. I loved the idea of half brothers Elias and Seth being mated to the same female and their love for their witch helping to heal a bond that had been torn apart by betrayal. Tempest was feisty enough to take on both of her supernatural mates but first she had to find her hidden strength. Of course, there was the trouble with a prophecy that was seemingly insurmountable and a formidable enemy added into the mix.

The characters in this book endeared themselves to me because fate had not been kind to any of them. It was Elias who tugged at my heart the most though. I loved the sexy menage sex scenes too. This was one very hot story! It was fast paced and loaded with action, as well.

Kryssie Fortune did a fabulous job on this book. Her writing was amazing and the dynamics of this supernatural world promise many exciting books to come for my future reading bliss. Meanwhile, Hades has more redeeming to do so that I can get my hands on the next book soon.

When Shiloh Anderson’s ex left her stranded in a bar, with no clothes, no car, and no money, the last thing she expected was to have a one-night stand with the sexiest man she’d ever seen. But the soldier left more than just a lasting impression with her, he left her pregnant.

Sergeant Drake Edwards is a lot of things, but he’s never been an asshole. Until the nameless woman from his one-night stand sends him an email claiming to be pregnant with his baby. Demanding a paternity test seemed reasonable enough to him, but he didn’t count on how damn stubborn she could be.

When Drake is injured and is forced to return home, he’s brought face to face with Shiloh once more, and her beauty nearly takes him to his knees. Facing death changes a man, and Drake is determined to do whatever it takes to claim his baby—and the woman he can’t stop thinking about.

Sergeant’s Secret Baby was a wonderful book that had me captivated from page one.

Life had taught Shiloh Anderson some very hard lessons. When her bad news boyfriend ran off with everything she owned and left her stranded in small town bar that was when things started looking up for this very independent girl. She found herself befriended by a friendly bartender and then knocked up by his sexy Army Sergeant brother after a smoking hot one night stand. Drake Edwards didn’t forget the mysterious beauty he hooked up with the night before he shipped out to complete his last tour of duty. However, he was stunned when she contacted him a few months later to break the news that he was about to become a daddy. He did not take it well, at all. He made a big mistake that would later have him working very hard to earn Shiloh’s trust.

This book wrecked me. It was heartbreaking in that I could feel Shiloh’s frustration as fate seemed to be conspiring against her. She had nearly given up on anything good ever happening in her life. She faced blow after blow and still worked so tirelessly to provide better for her baby. So when Drake came back into her life and wanted a relationship it really was nearly impossible for her to put aside her pride and accept his help. For his part Drake was actually a good guy which in the beginning it didn’t look that way. He was relentless in trying to do right by Shiloh and the baby.

I loved this story. The writing was perfect as the author unveiled a believable relationship that began in lust but then gutted my emotions as the she provided a window seat to watching this couple slowly take that fall into love. I will be recommending this one to all of my friends.

At Master’s hands, Lola went through hell. She was rescued, and she healed her body, but she never healed her mind. Everywhere she goes, Sinner is constantly concerned that something will trigger the darkness inside her. She can’t do that to the man she loves, and right now she can no longer be the woman for him. She has to find the woman that is strong enough to deal with what happened to her, so she can have a future with Sinner.

Sinner can feel Lola pulling away from him, and he doesn’t know what to do. He loves her more than anything, so when Lola tells him she’s going, it takes every ounce of strength he has not to keep her locked up. If he loves her enough, he has to let her go.

Being in Piston County without Lola kills a part of Sinner. He cannot sit around and wait, nor can he go and force her back to him. So, he leaves the club and heads out to the Chaos Bleeds: Nomad Chapter. It’s the only way.

Some relationships don’t follow the same paths. Not everything is easy. Can Lola and Sinner’s love survive the space that her mind clearly needs?

Sam Crescent strikes again! Sinner’s Possession is the ninth chapter in the fabulous Chaos Bleeds Series. I’ve read and loved them all but this one is definitely the best book yet. It’s incredibly captivating, emotionally raw, and a page turner all the way.

Sam Crescent is one author who never lets me down. This book was complex with a gripping plot and wonderfully rich characters who tugged at my heart. Sinner and Lola were a fantastic main couple who went through a lot of turmoil. Lola had been kept prisoner and raped by the evil Master/Andrew but she still hadn’t fully moved past the horrible experience. She needed to the freedom to face her fears on her own so she left Sinner and her Chaos Bleeds family. Sinner was a really impressive biker hero. He never tried to control the situation. He let Lola go because it was what she needed. He left his club family and rode Nomad with some old friends while waiting for his woman to come back to him.

This is where the story got even more intriguing for me because I am really hooked on the series. I remember in the first book that not all of the Chaos Bleeds MC was ready to settle down in Piston County. The Nomad crew were the wilder ones who rode out on their own. Well, now Sam Crescent brings them back in this special book. Let me tell you that these guys are a special breed who really need their own books. Especially Lucius who absolutely tore me up in this story. Sam Crescent left me crying and craving for a next chapter with Lucius.

This author is a perfect master at hooking readers with a vivid world, the absolute richest characters and fast moving exciting drama. I did not put this book down for anything, and I already want the next one now.
