tag17My name is Cale Kinley and I’m a fucking Virgin

Well, with the exception of my tongue. The countless things I can do with my tongue are bound to leave you breathless and begging for more, but more… is something that I can’t give. It’s a choice. My choice.

There’s a reason for that. A very good reason, and that reason is her.

Riley.

She’s the only woman that I want to bury myself deep in. The one woman I have wanted since I was old enough to fuck.

I never got my chance though, because she left. She had no choice and it stung like hell. But I couldn’t let her leave without telling her how I felt. I wanted her to be my first and I didn’t give a shit how long I’d have to wait.

It’s been six years and now she’s back and sexier than all hell. Just the sight of her stops my damn heart from beating. I want her and for more than just having her as my first.

I’m determined to have her in every way possible. She thinks this is still a game; that I’ve already given myself to countless women. What she doesn’t know is that I have a lot of willpower.

When I want something as badly as I want her, I don’t let shit stand in my way. I’m going to prove that to her. There’s just one little problem I need to take care of…

Three Broken Promises (One Week Girlfriend Quartet) by: Monica Murphy

Three Broken Promises

A Novel (One Week Girlfriend Quartet)

by Monica Murphy

New Adult, Erotic Romance

Blurb:
Breakout New Adult sensation Monica Murphy returns with a hot new contemporary romance—a heartfelt story of second chances, forgiveness, and redemption.

Commitment. That’s what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin’s done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitress job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn’t enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny’s death, about not going to Iraq, but I can’t keep living this double life.

I love him desperately, but he’s got so many demons, and if he can’t open up to me now, then he’ll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I’m out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.

Review:

Plot: 4. While the blurb of this book gives a very simplistic idea of what’s going on in this story, trust me when I tell you there is so much more here. This story has a more complex plot dealing with Jen’s desperation to escape her family’s grief over the death of her brother and Colin’s almost crippling grief over Danny’s death. I don’t want to give too much away, but trust me that it’s even better that described!

Sex: 4. Oh the buildup in this book. I didn’t think these two were ever going to pull their heads out of their butts and get to it. When they did, someone should have called Smokey the Bear because they were igniting sparks all over the pages. The chemistry between Colin and Jen was almost tangible. Each and every scene was passionate, meaningful and most importantly, believable – perfectly executed. I think I sighed audibly on more than one occasion.

Overall: 4. I read this in a couple of hours without stopping. This was not by choice, but due to the fact that I couldn’t put it down. Reading this story was intense. I was instantly drawn to these two characters and I couldn’t help want to scream for them to get out of their own heads and just open up to each other. The fact that they are both so obviously in love with each other, fiercely protective of one another, but both still wracked with grief over secrets they carry and over the death of their loved one was a journey in emotions for me. This story felt so realistic and ripped my heart out at times over Colin’s noncommittal stance and Jen’s desperation for him to just love her. Ms. Murphy has written a wonderful story that I hope you do not miss out on. If you’re a fan of a “tug at your heartstrings” romance novels, Three Broken Promises is for you.

Review: Capture & Surrender (Market Garden #5) by: L.A. Witt and Aleksandr Voinov

Capture and Surrender
Market Garden #5
By L.A. Witt
M/M, Erotic Romance
Riptide Publishing

Blurb: Ever since his partner died, Frank has resigned himself to staying single. He wards off the loneliness by spending time with friends on the paintball field and running his high-end brothel, the Market Garden.

After one of his most lucrative rentboys quits, Frank is thrilled when a gorgeous replacement walks through the door. A former US soldier, Stefan is hot, bold, and perfect for the Market Garden’s clientele, especially those with a thing for camouflage and drill sergeants. He’s perfect for Frank, too, except Frank has a rule about not getting involved with his own rentboys.

During a frisky game of paintball, Stefan makes it clear that he doesn’t care about the rules. Not the rules of the game, and definitely not Frank’s refusal to get involved. He captures Frank on the field using stealth and cunning, and makes it clear that he’ll do anything to keep a hold of him off the field too.

Review:
Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a fabulous book only to realize it’s not a stand-alone, but actually one in a series? I was beyond excited to find out that this gem of a story is book 5 in the Market Garden Universe series.

The Market Garden is a London club that caters to the better-off. Businessmen and bankers come here to relax and indulge in their every whim and fantasy, and Market Garden offers it all in top-shelf quality: threesomes, voyeuristic pleasures, domination, ropes and camo and leather. Men of every stripe, color, and nationality deliver these high-end services—everyone has their reasons to sell sex. And it’s the hottest sex in town.

Be still my beating heart! Now, down to the nitty gritty.

Plot: 5. Ok, I’ll try to do my best and not give away too much. I thought I was walking into an erotica novel and walked out after having read a love story. Yes, a LOVE story. Frank, the owner of Market Garden, has vowed to stay out of relationships since losing the love of his life and most certainly isn’t screwing around with one of his employees. Until, Stefan walks in. Stefan is an ex-US soldier, 100% alpha male, the hottest new employee at Market Garden and he’s gunning hard for Frank. Things heat up when Frank asks Stefan to join him and some of his buddies in a kinky game of paintball. This story is about more than a few guys capturing each other and playing “Dirty Prisoner of War” on the field. It’s about wanting something so bad, finding out it will never be the way you want it to be and having to either walk away or create something different altogether. The story touches on sensitive subject matters and handles them with great care. I was very emotional reading this book and will admit that I shed a few tears over it.

Sex: 5. Hot. Hot. Hot. I mean c’mon the book is about a pimp and a male hooker. Of course it’s going to be hot. The “Dirty Prisoner of War” games that were played on the field were super hot and really scratches the voyeuristic itch. There are some really intense scenes that are not just erotic, but I’m going to say are damn romantic. Seriously, they were and were described in amazingly graphic detail. Yummy!

Overall: 5. Three words —I loved it. I really can’t say a whole lot more than that. It was written perfectly, amazing plot and hot sex. I read this book a couple of days ago and I’m still on a little bit of book high from it. It really touched me and that is what tips the book from the Good Read category to the Great Read category. While this book can be read as a stand alone, do not miss out on this book or any of the others in the series.

Quid Pro Quo (Market Garden, #1), Take It Off (Market Garden, #2), If It Flies (Market Garden, #3), It Fornicates (Market Garden #4) and Capture & Surrender (Market Garden #5).

Review: Grime and Punishment (The Brothers Grime #1) By: Z.A. Maxfield

GrimeAndPunishmentJack: Grime and Punishment

The Brothers Grime #1

by Z.A. Maxfield

M/M, Erotic Romance,

Blurb:

The Brothers Grime is Jack Masterson’s way of helping people in crisis after disability ends his career as a firefighter. Jack’s people get to a scene long after the physical trauma ends. They don’t solve crime or rescue the victims. They help people move on. The new job is all Jack wants or needs, until he gets the call about old flame Nick Foasberg’s suicide.
Ryan Halloran’s cousin Nick has been on a downhill slide for a long time. Despite that, Ryan does everything he knows to help. Ryan only understands part of what happened between Nick and Jack in high school, but after Nick’s suicide, Ryan agrees both he and Jack need closure. They work together to clean the scene and despite the situation, heat flares between them.
Jack is keeping a painful secret and fighting his attraction Nick’s look-alike cousin, Ryan. Ryan calls himself a magnet for lost causes and worries Jack might be the next in a long line of losers. Despite his misgivings, despite the past and the mistakes they’ve both made, Jack gives Ryan something to look forward to, and Ryan gives Jack a reason to stop looking back, in Grime And Punishment.

Review:

Plot: 4. I just have to say that after reading the description of this book, I was IMMEDIATELY interested. Who really thinks about what happens at a crime scene once the body is taken away? How the hell could I not be interested in a book that touches on that subject and is an erotic M/M novel? This dirty little tale is about wounded ex-firefighter, Jack, whose ex-lover, Nick, tragically commits suicide. Jack and Nick have a horrifying painful history and Jack decides the best way to gain closure on that part of his life is to clean the scene, not only for himself, but for Nick’s cousin, Ryan, as well.

Sex: 4. While there are only a few scenes in this book, this is a case of quality vs. quantity. The author does a wonderful job of inciting sexual tension in both the characters and the reader. I was practically begging for them to take the next step and when they did, it was hot as hell. I’m not sure I’ll ever look at stairs quite the same way. HA! There is a perfect blend of angst, tension, passion and sex that is weaved perfectly into the story.

Overall: 3. I enjoyed the hell out of this book. I couldn’t put it down and had to read it in one sitting, much to the chagrin of my family. I felt many emotions while reading this book and I easily connected with the characters. The storyline of the book flowed smoothly and was very well written. I have no idea how the author is going to expand this series, but I’m eagerly anticipating book two!

Club Heat series Bk 2

by Silvia Stancil

Paranormal Erotic romance
Published By: Evernight Publishing
Published: Mar 20, 2013
ISBN # 9781771303279

Blurb:

Janika Lexus has been working at Club Heat in Soul City long enough to know the ropes. She knows her way around town and if there’s one thing she’s discovered, it’s that the seemingly peaceful Soul City is no walk in the park.

As if there weren’t enough paranormal threats, rumor has it that the metropolis has been invaded by Fire Vampires, a terrifying species of vampire that holds allegiance to no other, said to originate from hell itself.

There’s only one way for a human gal to get any kind of safety in Soul City—Janika must pick a pack of shifters as her mates in order to win their protection. And despite her rigid commitment to never commit, Janika can’t help but wonder if she’ll end up winning the heart of Lance, who seems to stand apart from the pack in a way she hasn’t yet unraveled.

Be Warned: menage sex (MFMMM), multiple partners, orgies, anal sex

Review:

Plot: 3. This Romance on the Go novella revolves around Janika, a young bartender in the town of Soul City Florida – a city ran rampant with just about every kind of paranormal being imaginable. There are vampires, werewolves, shifters, and other demonic creatures. Looking for protection from said creatures, Janika decides to become a pack mate with a group of Tiger Shifters. Of course they’re not your average shifters, they’re ridiculously hot and sexy. Mmmm… the best kind!

Sex: 4. In order to become a pack mate with the Tigers, Janika decides the best way to be come a pack mate is to bed all of the members. Did I mention there are four members? Woo Hoo! The sex was ridiculously dirty and including all the things you imagine would happen with four guys in one girl – oral, anal, double penetration – the works.

Overall: 3. While normally, I don’t find short stories all that great, this one actually worked for me. The plot was original and surprisingly, I connected with the characters. I think I would enjoy seeing this book expanded into a series. It was hot and heavy from start to finish and kept me turning pages.

Review: Wanting the Neighbor’s Daughter By: Sam Crescent

WTND2__41770.1374104968.300.450Wanting the Neighbor’s Daughter

Romance on the Go series

by Sam Crescent

Erotic Romance, MF

Evernight Publishing

Blurb:

Luke Reynolds desires his neighbor’s daughter, Kimberly. His feelings for her have grown over the years he’s known her, and now she’s twenty and he can’t deny her anything.

Kimberly has had a crush on her neighbor for a long time. He’s a womanizer and he’d never look at her twice.

One weekend house-sitting for her parents, both of their lives are about to change. Neither knows about their true feelings, but after this weekend Luke and Kimberly will not have a choice. Can their love survive her father’s wrath? And can Luke wait for Kimberly to make her his?

 

Plot: 3. Oh the old taboo of a younger woman wanting the sexy older man, made even more taboo by him being the next door neighbor who is famous for one-night stands and going through women like Kleenex. Kimberly is a 20 year old college student who has been asked by her parents to house sit for the weekend. Kimberly couldn’t be more excited about the request and is hoping to get a little alone time with her hot neighbor. Luke Reynolds has lusted after Kimberly since she was too young to touch is wickedly excited about getting to know Kimberly and proving to her that he is done with his old ways. After Kimberly catches him and his “flavor of the week” having sex, he realized that no other woman does it for him like Kimberly and he’s ready to make a commitment and settle down with the woman he has loved from afar for the past several years.

Sex: 4. The few scenes in this novella are very hot and very descriptive. This is quite a dirty book and left me feeling satisfied.

Overall: 3. While the story line isn’t that original and is a bit predictable, I still found it entertaining. It does exactly what a Romance on the Go novella is supposed to do – satisfy your need for a lunchtime quickie.

Review: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell by: Melissa Kendall

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
Romance On the Go
By Melissa Kendall
romance, erotic, gay, military,contemporary,mm, coming out 
Evernight Publishing

Blurb:

Sergeant Jason Holt and his boyfriend Sergeant Patrick Wentworth have been in a secret relationship for almost ten years. When the daily paper brings news of the repeal of the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, they think their prayers have finally been answered. Yet things aren’t always as easy as they seem, with not everybody at work supportive of their lifestyle and even their parents skeptical. Will they finally be able to be out and proud? 

Review:
Plot: 5. This Romance on the Go novella centers around enlisted men, Jason and Patrick. Together since their first year at West Point, this story details their ten year relationship before, during and after the “Don’t Ask. Don’t Tell policy is established by the government.

Sex: 4. There are quite a few scenes in this book that were pretty freaking hot! They start early on (page 5 to be exact) and definitely satisfied my craving for some camo-wearing M/M action. This book really got me going and did not disappoint.

Overall: 4. I feel that the author did a fantastic job portraying what I can only imagine homosexual men and women in the military must feel like. This novella was really quite touching. I can’t imagine what it must be like to not be able to express your feelings for the person you love, to have to hide in fear of physical abuse, losing your job and worst of all, losing family and friends. This novella addressed all of those topics in such an honest and respectful way and I am so glad that this author had the balls to address such a sensitive subject. For this, I salute Ms. Kendall, as well as all of our enlisted men and women – gay or straight. THANK YOU!

Blurb:

A man who thinks he has what he wants.
Bran Johnson always knew he wanted to be a Marine. What makes it even better is longtime gal pal TK is now stationed at the same base. Unfortunately, Bran is having a hard time dealing with his feelings when he realizes that TK is considered a hot commodity on base. Worse, he finds himself taking a backseat to her admirers.
A woman who always wished for more.
Tess Keller has loved Bran since they were in high school. The former football captain always treated her like a friend so she tried to move on. Unfortunately, he’s in her business constantly now. One passionate argument leads to more than either of them expected. Tess knows it isn’t going to last because Bran is never going to settle down. So, to save face, she suggests they stay friends, only with the side benefit of being sometime lovers.
A Marine determined to win at all costs.
Bran agrees to the friends with benefits idea just to keep himself close to Tess. She might think he’s not around for the long haul, but this is one Johnson brother who knows exactly what he wants…and just how to get it. And what he wants is Tess in his bed and in his life forever. Nothing will stop him, not even Tess herself.

Plot: 3. While this is not the most original plot ever written, it was wickedly entertaining. I loved that Tess was a tough girl. (I do NOT enjoy books with weak women.) She has a smart mouth and gives as good as she gets. Bran deliciously sexy, wildly possessive and was so sweet that he gave me a toothache. Sigh…possessive soldiers are so drool worthy! Anyway, I loved the chemistry between these two. It was electric and had me dying for them to get it on already!

Sex: 4. Oh the first time they finally hooked up I was squealing with delight. It was as hot as I had hoped it would be. There isn’t a lot of sex in this book as the novella is only about 80 pages, but it was just enough to enhance the story and keep it a perfectly blended balance of sex and story.

Overall: 4. This book is wonderfully written and thoroughly entertaining. I absolutely loved the tension and the angst that Tess and Bran felt. I felt it too. My only complaint, which is really a compliment, is that I wish it was longer. I feel that this story could have been even better had it been 250-300 pages. Maybe that’s just my wishful thinking and secretly begging the author for more. It was such a great story and I can’t wait to read more!

Next book in the series is Tempt Me then Touch Me.

Review: Feel the Rush by Kelsie Leverich

FTRcoverFeel the Rush

A Hard Feelings Novel

by Kelsie Leverich

Blurb

The New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement continues her sizzling series with a new novel of a plan that goes awry—in the arms of a soldier….

Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful—and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads. It’s time to find Mr. Safe….

Army captain Reed Porter lives for the thrill—an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not on his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid.…

As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?

Review:

Plot: 5. I love a hot military romance. What was really interesting about this one was that Meagan and Reed have a past—a hot one. Years before, they had a one night stand and fate/luck whatever you want to call it, brings them together again. When Meagen’s best friend gets transferred to a different base, Meagan decides that a change of scenery will do her some good and maybe she’ll be able to find a “safe” man. Guess who her new neighbor is. Yes, the ridiculously sexy, thrill-seeking hottie, Reed Porter. While Meagan remembers him, but he doesn’t remember her. The feeling of watching lovers reconnect was amazing.
Sex: 4. I was able to quickly connect with the characters, I was able to really “feel” the build up to the inevitable. (It’s a romance novel. Of course there is sex in it!) I loved the well-paced the story was and how the sex got progressively hotter and hotter. The scenes were believable and intimate and had me blushing at times.
Overall: 5. Mrs. Leverich really knows how to weave a believable and well written story. The story had me laughing in places, holding my breath at times and wanting to throw my Kindle across the room once or twice. Meagan and Reed seemed so familiar to me, like old friends or neighbors and I was rooting for them, despite the twists and turns that they had to deal with. Several new characters are introduced and I can’t wait to see who the next book is going to be about.
