Just some fun. Just one night of reckless, harmless, wild fun.

That’s what I told myself the night I hooked up with quite possibly the sexiest guy I’ve ever known. Only, I didn’t want to KNOW him. Life is a series of temporary situations, or so it’s always been for me. A future revolves around the next move, but I’m still the type to live in the moment on a seldom occasion, consequences be damned.

Unless that moment happens to be unknowingly landing in bed with my brand new stepbrother. The universe is a mean, twisted jerk. And one consequence is that I have to be around him and get to know him. The worst consequence is the fact that Maverick Sterling, the infamous playboy who can’t possibly be tamed, is really hard not to want more of once you’ve had a taste. So long as I’m not stupid enough to fall in love, it shouldn’t be a big deal. Right?


My life has been blissfully simple for a really long time. I have a routine. I have friends. I have family. Yet everyone seems to have less and less time, since they’re all sort of trying to be adults or what the hell ever. I blame them for the fact the only girl to ever ditch me without a backward glance is suddenly under my skin. I blame my father for the fact she’s a new fixture in my life. Not that I knew that before I got a little overly friendly with my new stepsister. I mean, what are the odds? It shouldn’t have been possible.

But it happened. It figures the one girl I can’t get out of my head is the one girl who doesn’t want to be with me. At least in my head she’s the only girl who doesn’t want to be with me, because I tend to be arrogant like that. The point is, now she’s everywhere I turn, yet she’s marking a line in the sand that she thinks I really won’t cross.

Obviously she doesn’t know me at all.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 review by Kassa 

Damn you CM Owens! I never ever thought you could write a book from Sterling Shore that would manage to make Loving War wobble on its first spot. And I NEVER EVER would have imagined that it would be MAVERICK who lets it wobble.
While reading the other books of Sterling Shore Maverick wasn’t my favorite. I wasn’t even remotely interested in his story, because all he seemed to be was the jokester. Of course he was business savvy like they all are, but it never seemed something more going on in his brain than woman and booze. 
Yeah, I couldn’t have been more wrong. This book gave me aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall the feels. I laughed, I cried, I swooned and I fell in love with Maverick and Salem. I FELT so much while reading this book, I can’t even put it in words. I just KNOW. I don’t want this series to end. I NEED to know how the life of these characters goes on. 
The character developments in this book were impressive. I mean, they developed and at the same time we learned what they hid from the others during other books. The REAL person behind the jokes and booze. I loved how the author was able to give Maverick a deepness and side I never would have expected. 
Thank you for another great read of the Sterling Shore Series. Only two are left and I really don’t want it to end.

She lost him once…

Years ago Samantha made a mistake and lost a chance at something real with Maguire O’Connor. Now that she’s living in Holly again, she knows seeing him is inevitable. But the last thing she ever expected was to take him on as a client.

But someone from her past followed her back to Holly with a sinister intent. Now Maguire will do whatever it takes to protect the woman he intends to claim as his forever.

🌟🌟🌟🌟REVIEW by Kassa

Reading one of Katie Reus’ books is a no brainer. I have a standing preorder alert for her new releases and was never disappointed. I couldn’t even decide which of her book would be my favorite, because I have so many that I like. 
That being said I still am wary each time I get a new one of hers in my hands, because, how could she possibly hold up to the high standards she set for herself with her previous books? 
How could a novella like this hold up to her novel length paranormal books that I love?
With these thoughts in mind I dove in the Christmassy setting of “It’s me again, Baby” set in Holly where Christmas is all year round. I really liked the other books in this series, so I wasn’t too concerned about this one being a disappointment.
And of course she delivered on spot! With only a few words the author managed to build the setting, characterize the persons and make me fall in love with them. Even though it is a short novella, the characters were better build than some others in full-length novels I read. They lived and breathed and I was so glad how everything turned out in the end. It was perfect. 
Well, almost perfect. As I said before it is “only” a novella and because of that too short. The characters are so nice and I wanted to stay with them longer. Way longer. 
The writing style was easy to get in and supported the plot perfectly. There were no mistakes, plotholes or other things that would have lessened my reading joy. 
If you are looking for a quick and easy read you can enjoy without having read the other books in the series, this one is a recommendation. Even though It is part of a series, it can be easily read as a standalone and I really recommend it if you haven’T read a book of this author before. It is a good start before you get sucked in in all the other great books Katie Reus has already published!

Title: Lily

Series: A Force of Nature Fairytale #2

Author: M.A. Horst

Genre: Standalone Erotic Romance

Release Dates: May 15, 2017


Lily has been born into wealth, and with that comes a certain responsibility. She has been promised to Hail, who has just taken over Royal Industries along with his
brothers and cousins. The Royal family screams power and money and they’ll
destroy anyone who stands in their way of acquiring more.

Hail is more forceful and unyielding than the preppy son of a greedy bastard Lily took him for. Everything about him is dominant. When his eyes lock with hers sparks fly instantly. Lily belongs to Hail and there’s nothing she can do but honor
her grandfather’s promise.

Just one look at Lily and Hail is determined to own her in every way. He doesn’t want her obedience just because she’s honoring a promise. He wants her obedience because she craves to please him.

The force of nature might just be too much for the delicate Lily.


🌟🌟🌟🌟by Kassa

I have to say, after reading Poppy I was really curious, how the author would pull all the novellas off when the topic was the same for each and every one: A member of the Flower Family has to marry a member of the Royal Family, because of an old contract. 
Poppy was good. Lily is better. I was really astonished to see how the author managed to pack the different characters in only a few lines. On a few short pages there is character development, fear, angst and love. It’s insta-love, so if you don’t like that sort of thing these novellas are NOT for you. I liked it, because it made an entertaining fast read that still holds some meaning. 
I loved how Lily showed a backbone. In the beginning she was this timid girl, eager to please her parents to spare her sister from the same fate, but the insta-love changed all that and it was awesome!
The writing style was easy to read and supported the story. It was easy to tell the main characters apart, because their voices were different from each other. There were no plotholes or inconsistencies that would have lessened my reading fun. 
I can’t wait for Rose’s book and will wait impatiently for the next one, hoping the author can keep up the quality

REVIEW TOUR : Rescue Me by Sara Schoen



by Sara Schoen


Mia Daniels is running away.

She’s leaving her family, her job, and her life behind, all to get away from her past. With no plan, she packed her suitcase and took off for a town where she thought she’d be safe. She should have known she wouldn’t be safe anywhere…

Gage Greystone is running from his family name.

His family has owned the town for generations, but he doesn’t plan to take it over from his father. He has a dream to save others; from the treacherous hiking trails or from themselves. Maybe that’s why he’s so attracted to the newest resident of Escape, Mia. She seems to be silently begging to be rescued. From what, he doesn’t know, but he’ll do anything to rescue her.

But this rescue may be impossible for the decorated emergency serviceman…

🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW by Katie 

Rescue Me is the first book in the Escape from Reality series and I really liked this story – the synopsis intrigued me so I was really looking forward to starting it and I wasn’t disappointed. I thought that the story was really well written and flowed nicely and although it was on the shorter side it still had a full bodied story to it. There was only one small part where I would have liked a little expansion but by mentioning it would be a big spoiler – but even so I still thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the characters. Mia was a great character and I did feel sorry for her. She was desperate to get away from her past and was slowly starting to rebuild her self-confidence. Gage was a great alpha male. He wasn’t going to let Mia shy away from relationships because of her past and he was a true gentleman. I enjoyed reading about their relationship and would happily have read a longer story about them – they had great chemistry and it was a really nice story line! I’ll definitely be looking forward to more stories in the series! This is also the first book that I have read by this author so will be looking to read more from her in the future

REVIEW TOUR : The Perfect 1 by Cory Cyr

Title: The Perfect 1

Author: Cory Cyr

Genre: Urban Erotic Romance

Release Date: March 31, 2017 

Jensyn Parrish was one of the world’s most gorgeous supermodels, dubbed the “Perfect 10” for most of her career. Thirteen years ago, a horrific car accident left her face disfigured. Suffering the loss of her beauty, career, and self-worth, she seeks a life of quiet seclusion in Hawaii.

Lincoln Bass, a New York best-selling author and adrenaline junkie, has no idea what he could possibly have in common with his brother’s friend Jensyn. After suddenly being impaired with blindness at only twenty-five, his life is forever altered. Independent, headstrong, and ever the daredevil, Lincoln is stricken with the certainty that if he wants to continue writing, he needs help.

Two people damaged by circumstances of fate…

Disguising who she once was becomes a difficult task for Jensyn. Her only job is to help Lincoln finish his book. But boundaries are somehow obscured and fiction becomes their reality.

🌟🌟🌟🌟REVIEW by Alexa
OMG! I loved this book so much more than I thought I would – and I had thought it sounded very intriguing to start with. It was full of angst – but in a good way… It really made you think – what if something like this happened to me?! How would I handle it? It was a gut wrenching, emotional story that was SO much more than just a romance.

I really felt for both of the characters – they each are going through a painful life journey and they manage to come together, help each other fight and find their way out of the darkness (both literally and figuratively in this case).

I thought it was very well written as I was feeling the pain of both of them as they each struggled to find their way. Although I think we got more depth and insight from Jensyn’s character than Lincoln’s as it was mainly told from her POV. However, I really admired how Lincoln knew himself and was determined to fight for their love despite Jensyn’s fears and misgivings.

I know I have a couple of other books by Cory Cyr sitting in my TBR pile on my Kindle – makes me think I should dig them out and give them a read!

🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW by Kassa

I wanted to read this series when I discovered the great covers on cover reveal day. I knew even though the books are “only” novellas that I have to read them and maybe even purchase paperbacks since they are just so pretty. This is what a great cover can make me do!

Poppy was the first book in this series and the first book of this author I have read so far. It was a fast paced read which is not unusual for a novella, but the author managed to pack such a character development in these few pages that I was literally speechless. I loved how real Poppy seemed, how timid and shy in the beginning and outgoing in the end. How she fought for herself and the things she believed in, the things she deserved and got them. 
The timeline of the plot was short but adequate for the things that took place and I wished the book was longer just so that I can stay a little bit longer in that fairytale world. I can’t wait for the second book and the rest of the series to come to me.
The writing style of the author was really good. I was sucked right into the story and could easily picture characters and surroundings in my head which made it easy for me to get sucked right into the story.

BLOG TOUR WITH REVIEW – Reckless Devotion by Jennifer Domenico

Title: Reckless Devotion

Author: Jennifer Domenico

Genre: BDSM, Erotica

Cover Designer: Wicked by Design

Editor: Mad Hatter Press

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR 


He’s a dom, she’s not even a little submissive. It shouldn’t work, but they can’t walk away from each other.

Boundaries will be crossed, trust shattered, secrets revealed. Both need to give up control. Both need to find middle ground.

When it’s easier to walk away, there’s only thing strong enough to bind them together.

Reckless devotion.

🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW by Alexa

Okay, so I am a big fan of GOOD BDSM books and this one definitely qualifies as that! This book had all the elements that I love in a good read – an alpha male, a strong woman who also enjoys alpha males, well written scenes and holy hot and sexy times! 

This would have been a 5 star read for me with the exception of the fact that it is basically half a book and ends in a CLIFFHANGER!!! I detest cliffhangers and when I signed up to read the ARC of this one there was no mention of it being a cliffy ending – no bueno for me on that. Not cool – however I see now that the blurb has been amended to state that it is a cliffhanger and that the second book comes out in June… Soooo, if you are like me, I would suggest waiting to read until book 2 comes out and read all together so you don’t get the rage feelings that I am experiencing at the moment – LOL! Just kidding – but seriously it affected my enjoyment of the book as I could see it coming when the book was almost at 100% and there was no ending in sight…

So final thoughts – great book, highly recommend – just hated that it was a cliffhanger. Will be looking for book 2 to see how it all ends!

One day, many months ago, Jennifer Domenico went to sleep and a beautiful love story played out in her dreams.

When she awoke, she felt compelled to write it down. So she did. The result was her first novel, Turn Towards the Sun and a writing career was born.

Ms. Domenico lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with her very Italian husband, a dog that adores her, two cats that tolerate her, and a wicked sweet tooth.
