Synopsis:

Amy Norton is on a mission to prove herself as an Investigative Journalist, but her over-protective father hires a bodyguard to accompany her during her investigative work, and she’s furious. Things only get worse when she realizes the bodyguard is the guy she mistakenly approached on a blind date the night before. She was all over the man and embarrassed herself, big time. The last thing she wants is to have him obstructing her investigation, gorgeous though he is.Undercover Investigator, Sebastian Armitage, is amused and fascinated by the situation and sets out to charm the pants off the hot-headed Ms Norton. She is one sexy lady, and he wants her. Before long they embark on a red-hot affair, but how is Sebastian going to point out that she’s going about investigative work the wrong way, while keeping her sweet?

 

Review:

Seems Amy is the master at finding herself in funny and embarrassing situations. The first one being after she agrees to go on a blind date with a contact of hers, Roger. Seems fate had other plans and most definitely wanted her to be put into the path of Sebastian instead. Not that he minded one bit.

It all starts with Amy wanting to do an investigation piece – a way to prove herself as a real journalist – on a missing Ghost Hunter show presenter. Gossip puts possible occult reasons at play but Amy wants to find the truth for a scoop of her own. Working at her fathers company has its drawbacks as she feels she has to work twice as hard to be seen as competent. She doesn’t want any favoritism, just wants to prove herself a good journalist. Hopefully this big break will give her that, well if she cracks it that is. Seems her father has a few stipulations for her though. The first one being whom she has to answer to she can deal with but the second one not so much. Seems he thinks she needs a minder/bodyguard on this case. She doesn’t want a minder or to be slowed down because of one but reluctantly agrees figuring it can’ be too bad. Well that’s what she was thinking until he walked through the door and she realized she’d meet him the night before in a bit of an embarrassing way. Seems she was getting flirty with a contact of hers over the phone and when he asked to meet her for some no-strings fun she (along with her boss giving big thumbs up) agrees to go along for her first blind date. I think you can imagine what might happen next. Starts with a comical fall into a lap, goes straight into the whole banter as if she’s known him a while and finishes off by saying she can’t wait for some no strings fun. When realizes she’s with the wrong guy though, mainly because she spots the correct one further down the bar, she just makes a run for it. New shoes got her into trouble and she’s hoping they won’t stop her escape. Seems Sebastian isn’t so keen to let her disappear without a trace though and goes up to the guy in question to subtly ask about whom he’s waiting for. Gets a pleasant surprise the next day when he finds out she’s the daughter of the guy who hired his firm for a bodyguard duty. Not something he usually does anymore as he tends to stick to the investigation side of his firm but fate again seems to have put them in each other’s paths so he’s not going to knock it.

Embarrassment aside its soon a fun road trip ahead with possible ghostly tales along the way. Seems Amy is a bit of a scaredy-cat and drama queen rolled into one. When she feels betrayed she just goes full speed ahead into attack mode but soon starts to realize that’s not the best way to act. The mystery of Quentin takes more of a back seat throughout as the story revolves more on the connection slowly building between Amy and Sebastian and the situations they find themselves in. The sexual tension is seen a mile off and its not long before the no strings deal is back on the table. Fan me down how hot were they together! More of a steamy romance read than mystery solving. Even though that’s still in play its really just a means to an end to get the pair of them somewhere alone together. Comical and spicy read throughout so all good fun though. One thing you learn straight off is that she doesn’t like being lied to or feeling like she’s been played. Something Sebastian should really take note of since he hides the fact he’s not really just a bodyguard. Can their ‘no strings fun’ turn into something more? Only time will tell but its looking good for now.

She wasn’t part of my original plan for revenge, but one glance at her and I was entranced. I followed her for weeks, observing her habits.

It’s only a matter of time before I have her where I want her…

on her knees and at my mercy.

Soon, there will be no secrets between us.

Review

Well this starts out as a misguided plan of revenge for pain and anger that Zack just couldn’t deal with. It’s revenge he seeks against Kyle for taking away his chance to deal with his father. His parents were in an abusive relationship that soon spilled over to him at a young age. He had a lot of twisted anger built up inside, anger that needed to find a different release before it took him down too far to come back. His need for revenge stops the moment he sees Lana though. One look and he was a goner. She soon becomes a new type of obsession. One he longs to keep for years to come. Soon they will no longer have any secrets but for now the only way to get close to her is to use a few small ones. He can tell she’s been hurt, broken even, but he wants to put her back together again. She in turn is making him into a better man. The one he was meant to be, but the longer he holds off from telling her everything the harder the fall will be when everything comes crushing down.

Lana had been through a lot with her past boyfriend. He was her first everything so will always hold a part of her. You are just trying to figure out what happen to make them break up. You might have lots of theories but the answer is much sadder. With being a bit of a computer geek she progressed in school and college quickly. It means that she’s not so great in social environments due to experiencing them at such a young age. College at 15 isn’t really good for meeting people. She comes across as still a bit insecure with how she reacts when Zack gives her a compliment. Its like she can’t see herself like he can but he’s more than willing to keep repeating himself when it comes to her. Funny how she longs for a dominating man to protect her at the beginning when looking at her bosses relationships with how they act. Little did she know at the time that she did have her alpha male, he was just in the background waiting for his moment to come and claim her. He may be a little bit of a stalker but he doesn’t want to hurt her. Only get closer because he sees her as his. From the moment they kiss it pretty much seals the deal for both of them. They are linked from then on, going down a road unsure of how it will end. You are just keeping your fingers crossed it won’t end.

Hot spicy chemistry between them that grows slowly. Zack knows he needs to take his time so he won’t scare her off but some things are just far too tempting. All I’ll say is ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?’ Lets see if it can be brought home because when he starts to show his kinkier side that’s when the fun really starts. Oh my! Lets just say when he gets her on a swing he makes it very clear whom she (specifically what body part) belongs to. Hold onto your hats because its about to get kinky in the best way.

They are perfect for each other as they are bringing out the best in each other and mending what’s been broken. How far will they get in their relationship though before the bubble bursts? Everything he’s ever done led him to her so he wouldn’t change it. You know he needs forgiveness for his sins and I have to say he does get it with what he does at the end. Keeps you hooked right from the start with how it will all play out. Great read and style of writing from start to finish.

Exclusive Content Excerpt:

 

Who is she? My eyes narrow as I take in the red haired nymph on the dance floor. Studying her movements, I notice she’s graceful and fluid, yet sexy at the same time. Watching her hips sensually sway to the slower tempo and grind to the thumping bass has my teeth clenching and my heart pounding wildly in my chest. I fight an instinctive urge to rush over, take her in my arms and never let her go.

What the hell is wrong with me? I’ve never had this reaction to a woman before. Usually they’re just a means to get off – a nameless, faceless hole to fuck. I use them hard and fast, bringing them extreme pleasure and pain because one isn’t as good without the other.

I’m tempted to slide behind her and let my hands roam over the gentle curves of her hips then slip around her waist to pull her flush against the front of me. There’d be no mistaking the effect her body has on me. She’d wiggle her ass against my cock, teasing me, then flick her eyes over her shoulder with a small playful smile on her shiny red lips. My fingers would slide down the soft material of her dress to skim along the bottom edge, trailing over her silky thighs. She’d tremble from my touch, proof she wants me too.

Merely thinking about it has me fighting the overwhelming urge to carry her off and have my wicked way with her. I want to see her cuffed to my bed, whimpering and begging for my tongue or hard cock.

She returns to the table in the back corner of Quake, a popular club in Boston, with her friends. Her cheeks are flushed pink from dancing and her hair falls around her shoulders in a sexy disarray of waves.

My eyes scan the faces of the people she’s with. I know the names and have background information on them all. I’m well acquainted with some, more than others. I grimace as my hand rubs over my stomach. It was only weeks ago that I had a knife buried to the hilt in my gut and I was at death’s doorstep. Seeing the person responsible causes anger to burn through my veins.

Taking a deep breath I flick my gaze back to the living red haired angel. Immediately, I feel a sense of calm wash over me. She’s the only new face amongst them and now that I’ve seen her – no other matters. I have to find out who she is. I need to learn all I can about her.

Her eyes scan the room as if she can sense the heat of my stare. I smirk knowing she feels it too. This pulsing attraction between us is powerful and it needs to be explored. It will be explored. When I set my mind to something, nothing stands in my way.

Her hands smooth down the material on the back of her dress before she sits. She awkwardly tugs down the bottom to provide as much modesty as possible, but the short length leaves a good portion of her long sleek legs exposed. I can tell she’s uncomfortable and I smile at her modesty. There’s a sense of innocence about her I find extremely attractive.

Round after round of drinks are ordered by her friends as I stand here, studying her every move, slowly sipping a beer. Watching her tongue make a slow trek around the rim of her margarita glass, licking up all traces of salt has me mesmerized.

She throws her head back laughing and her long red hair tumbles past her shoulders.

What would her hair feel like trailing over my bare chest if she bent down to kiss me while riding my cock?

I need to know who this precious angel is. Seeing her tonight isn’t a coincidence. Fate placed her in my path for a reason.

Standing to the side of the bar, my shoulder braced against a white stucco pillar, my casual body language conceals the hurricane of emotions she’s stirring up in me. She’s an unexpected twist in my well thought out plan. I can’t wait to get to know her.

Let the games begin…

Book Review: ‘Doctor-Patient Confidentiality Volume Four’ by Eme Strife

Title: Doctor-Patient Confidentiality Volume Four

Published: 21st December 2014

Publisher: (Eme)nded Publishing

Author: Eme Strife

Facebook: www.facebook.com/emestrifeauthor

Synopsis:

Two very different people.
One scandalous proposition.
Endless possibilities…

***

My eyes burn.

Really badly.

They’ve been burning since yesterday morning, ever since my eyes landed on what was inside that damn folder. And they continued to burn through today’s morning practice and all my classes.

And they’re still burning now, probably even more than they were before as I stomp through the main hallway of the surgical center.

“Excuse me, Miss, you can’t go through there,” I hear a female voice call after me, but I don’t stop.

“Miss, office hours are over. You cannot go in there!” she repeats.

Her words still don’t stop me. I can’t stop. Not when I’m cranky and pissed off and the very cause of my crankiness and anger is right here in this building. I hear her shuffle behind me, presumably to chase after me. But I still keep going.

I didn’t sleep last night. I couldn’t. At all. Not even for a little bit. And now my feet won’t stop moving. My fingers won’t stop twitching. And my fucking eyes won’t stop burning behind my glasses.

I ride up the elevator and bend into a familiar corridor, practically stomping the entire way there, and I push the door open without a second thought. My eyes immediately land on my target.

Dexter fucking Frost.

Review:

Well we left off with Ramona in Doctor Frost’s arms after she stumbles into him. It’s at this point she pretty much has an out of body experience as she has no idea how to react with the situation she’s suddenly found herself in. He is clearly there as a guest and with one look at her outfit he knows exactly why she’s there. And putting it mildly, he’s not happy about it. I’m getting a bit of a jealously vibe coming off him from then on when other males are around or it may be a bit of a alpha male pissing contest as to who can claim her. With Doctor Frost definitely wanting to be that male. She likes his hand on her at one point and then wants it gone the next. The mix of emotions running through her mind is high enough without his condescending attitude that comes her way. He goes right for the kill with saying people wouldn’t want to find out about why she’s there. Its funny how he first says that her brother Danny wouldn’t like it. Its like he’s under the impression that they are close and he gets a bit confused when she pretty much laughs this off, definitely a story there. Well that’s before he mentions her grandmother. Its here we see her anger full force – hello slap! Hope it hurt his face as much as her hand. Doesn’t stop him from pursuing her and wanting to be her ticket home though. One she is favour of to escape the likes of creepy Mitch, but when Mindy shows up she’s not sure what to do. From the look on Mindy’s face only one option is correct. Seems her and Dex go way back, something that annoys Ramona and then she’s annoyed that she’s annoyed because she shouldn’t be thinking about him that way anyway. Like I said, very mixed emotions whenever she is within a few feet of this man.

Well I was right with my theory about how she would be hired to work with Rainbow escort agency. Now the ball has most definitely started rolling. Much more interaction between both Ramona and Doctor Frost this time around which was great. His condition for keeping quiet about why she was at that party is the start of where the fun is going to begin. Can’t wait to see when she will crack. He temps her like no other and the more dominating he acts around her the more she just wants to jump him. Well submit and have him take her anyway he wants her. Which if he’s hoping is going to be very soon. Oh the chemistry is there and I loved that we finally got to see more of a back and forth relationship starting with them. He can get on her nerves very quickly and she’s not afraid to tell him where he can stick his words. Well the afraid/turned on feeling does come rushing back but not until Monday rolls around when she storms into see him. Sexual tension rising to boiling point the longer they talk/argue. I so wanted him to back her up against the wall to kiss her – she would not have complained. Though I’m pretty sure he wants her to come to him. All about her submitting to what is going to happen. Well from book one we know where they are headed and now we are one step closer to seeing how it all unfolds. So lets get ready to see the delectable sexy doctor in action with the woman he’s clearly wanted from the moment he met her. Looking for a new secret sub perhaps? Lets see if she fits into the roll for him. Let the countdown begin.

Synopsis:

Two very different people.
One scandalous proposition.
Endless possibilities…

***

My feet are immediately frozen in place, almost as if they’ve been physically cemented to the floor. My legs feel foreign, like a pair of oversized ice blocks, their weight suddenly too heavy for the rest of my body.

A surge of ice shoots through them and flares throughout the rest of my body, making an especially notable impact as it slithers through my spine, and I know it’s not because of the onslaught of cold wind now blowing over me.

Icy blue eyes keep me paralyzed and mute for several moments, and I swear my voice just left with the last gust of wind that came my way.

I feel my eyelids stretching themselves to the point of discomfort in an effort to accommodate the quickly-widening eyeballs within them. I’m even unable to blink as I behold the tall, imposing man standing at my grandmother’s doorstep.

This is the third book in this series.

Rated 17+

Review:

Now things have started to get a bit more interesting. You start with Ramona being somewhat shocked by Dr Frosts appearance at her grandfathers memorial, even more so when its clear her grandmother doesn’t know him. What’s more interesting is that Liam and him seem to know each other and not in a friendly way. There has to be an interesting story between them. I can just tell that Liam is going to be some kind of snake with the vibe that’s coming off him but will have to wait and see.

So after the emotional day Ramona has had all she wants is to sleep but when she comes across some letters her grandmother has been hiding that’s the last thing she can do. Seems she needs money more than ever and not just for her medical expenses. This reason alone leads her to make a decision that will lead her down a road she never thought she’d go. While going down this road she bumps into another side character and this helps create a good sub plot within the main story. Nicole a work colleague might have just the answer she’s looking for with the money front and Rainbow is the key. Love the interaction between them with how she is trying to get her so far out of her comfort zone to even be able to consider this. So far out that she has to talk herself round at one point to see it through. Its at this point where we bump into a certain someone with blue eyes and I have a feeling I know she’s going to catch his eye from then on. She may get the job but I have a feeling it will come with only one client. One that might want to keep her but we will have to wait and see. Angry eyes or smouldering eyes, I can’t decide what she’ll see. What ones do you think he will show first?

Much more interaction between characters this time around, which I liked more as you are starting to see it evolve into something interesting, especially with the sub plots. Cliff hanger ending again but that’s the style of the series and if you didn’t think he was going to appear while she was at a certain type of party then you must be blind. This may be a recurring theme though that she always bumps into him at the end. Hope it changes up a little or it may be a bit repetitive.

Book Review: ‘The Auction’ by J. R. Gray

the-auction

Title: The Auction

Published: 22nd February 2017

Author: J. R. Gray

Twitter: @booksbygray

Synopsis:

Stark is too old to be selling himself, or his services. He’s too set in his ways, too piled in grief, and well…it’s been too long. But when your best friend is a big demanding drag queen, and hosting the event, it’s impossible to say no. It’s one night, he convinces himself, and then he can get back to his reclusive life.

Scotty can handle the club for one night. It’s Christmas Eve after all, and the auction is for charity. If she saw her ex she could deal with it, she hoped and it wasn’t like she had to bid on anyone. But when she comes back from the bar she finds her best friend had other plans, and now she has a date with a mysterious dominant.

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2017 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – An erotica romance. Lets take a stroll into the world of a Dom/Sub relationship and an auction that turns out to be the best place to find the one perfect for you.

It’s Christmas Eve and Scotty’s best friend Cheri drags her along to an auction at the BDSM club that she used to frequent quite often with her ex Tanya. Seems she hasn’t been back to the club in a few years due to how that relationship ended. Tanya was her Domme at the time and she messed her up in quite a lot of ways with how she treated her. She doesn’t really want to face her, mainly because she hates to admit that she still has some pull over her after all these years. The auction itself is a little different as you are bidding to buy an evening of play with a Dom, Domme or Sub, all proceeds going to charity. She has no intention on bidding on anyone but humours her friend by at least looking. Well looking at the male side of the list because she can’t bear to see Tanya’s name. You never know she may be tempted as she is bi, well just to look anyway. Seems Cheri has other ideas though from the look on her face when she gets back to their table. It appears she has brought someone using her paddle, now its up to Scotty to decide if she wants to go through with meeting him.

Stark has turned into more of a recluse then ever since the death of his wife years before and it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. His best friend and brother in law Matt (aka Pinky the drag queen) ropes him into being sold for his Dom services for one night. He goes last and hopes that it’s not a complete disaster. He might get sold but he never gets to meet the woman who brought him and leaves it to Matt to get some answers about her. At first he thinks she is a newbie and has no interest being someone to train her into their world but when he finds out whom she used to belong to he gets an idea as to why she hasn’t been to the club in a while.

What starts out as some innocent emails soon turns into dinner. Seems its like riding a bike with how easy they both fall back into the roles they haven’t played with in a while but with that comes its own problems and fears. From bad past experiences on both sides they are struggling at first to see how they want to continue. It can just be dinner but from the heat that builds throughout the evening you know they both want and need more. More they will get if panic attacks and a need to stay inside don’t keep holding them back. They both need to want to make it work to get what they really want out of this. She longs to be submissive but in the right way this time by being looked after properly by her Dom, something that Stark really wants to do. If they can both stop running away when the pressure and fears get too much then they might find they have found what they have both been looking for.

Loved the scenes they create whether at his place or the club, you can see quite quickly how much chemistry is between them. You also get an impression that them meeting might not have been purely by chance with how perfect they are at fixing the other. Cheri is a feisty character that is very loyal to her friend and I loved Matt/Pinky no matter who he was at the time. Creative colourful characters, ones you would want in your corner. Entertaining throughout with a good mix of romance, spice and kinky fantasies.
