My Review
5 Stars
Undefeated by Helen Hardt is Parts 13-15 in the Blood Bond Saga. This continues the story of Erin Hamilton and Dante Gabriel, so you should read the previous books first before starting this one.
Dante has gone to the underground to confront the women that held him hostage but of course Erin, Jay and River are following him too. Dante powers are getting stronger due to his bond to Erin. But this book takes them to testing everything that they have build up to.
This whole series has been a page turner keeping you on the edge of your seat and wanting more from them. I am a fan of Ms. Hardt's writing and this series sure proves why I am a fan.
Loved it. 
 

 

SLAY: RIVALRY by Laurelin Paige

 
SLAY: RIVALRY (Slay Quartet #1) by Laurelin Paige Release Date: June 4th
 
   
 
 
Blurb Edward Fasbender is a devil.
He's my father's business rival, a powerful, vicious man who takes what he wants and bows to no one. I only took the meeting because I was curious. I thought he was going to offer me a job.
But that's not what he's after at all. His proposal is much more intriguing, and I see an opportunity. An opportunity to turn the tables and bring down the devil.
I've gotten in trouble playing these games before. I know when the risk is too great, when the stakes are too high. I know how to be cold and strong-willed and destructive. I know how to withstand dominant men with arrogant charm and rugged features.
Yet I can't resist taking on Edward.
And I can't resist the pull he has on me.
Soon I'm not so sure which side of the battle I'm standing on--if I'm the warrior meant to slay,
Or the one who will be slain.
 
About the Author With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however.
When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.
She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

Blurb

Wallowing in grief for too long can be hazardous. It’s why I allowed my brother to talk me into accepting a new client.
Our security firm needed the money, and the endorsement from a famous director could steer our company to new heights.
Then his daughter walked in, the woman I’d be assigned to, and I knew I’d made a huge mistake. 
She was a spoiled socialite who only cared about herself.
She pushed every button I had, frayed every last nerve.
I said things I wasn’t proud of.
I pushed the boundaries of propriety.
But how else was I supposed to protect her from the threats against her family when she insisted on being reckless?

My Review
5 Stars
The Assignment by S. Nelson is the First book in the Massey Security Duet.
Owen and Ford Massey are Ex-Marines who have went forward to open a Security Company.  The brother's have agreed to take on Walter Dessoye as a client.  Mr. Dessoye is a famous director who has received threats on his family.  So Owen and Ford are to be security detail for his daughters Emily and Cara.  Owen who is more the easy going brother of the two is assigned Emily who is a quiet, by the book girl who like to help out a charities.  Ford who is the more uptight, by the book, no patience for the unruly things or people has to be security for Cara.  Cara changed from the sweet girl to the party girl who is into everything and doesn't want to be monitored nor appreciates her fathers security detail...Ford.  Cara just wants to live her life and starts to push at Fords nerves to retaliate.  In this book it sets up the tone of relationship and in the next book I would think would lead to more romance in their relationship.
This book doesn't finish their story so we will be getting another installment shortly...I can't wait.  Ms. Nelson is one of my go to authors.  I can never put her books down and always looking for more from her.

Survive a plane crash. Get marooned on a deserted island with a dirty, damaged alpha-hole. What could be worse?
 
Alyona
 
They say there’s a fine line between love and hate.
I believe it.
Brash sure lives up to his nickname.
Impetuous and rude, the billionaire hotel developer can’t possibly offer me anything but a much-needed paycheck.
Except, everything changes when our plane crashes.
Not only do we have to face the dangers of this tropical island, we must also endure our growing attraction to each other.
 
Brash
 
The spoiled, self-entitled mafia princess isn’t all she appears.
Beautiful and alluring, Alyona also possesses an innocence that calls to something long buried.
That’s risky for a man like me and a woman like her.
I’m a dirty bastard at the best of times, and this isn’t the best of times.
The perils we face are pushing us together.
And keeping things professional is no longer an option once I’m set on making her mine.
We’ve survived a plane crash, but can we survive the island with our hearts intact?


 
 
 
 
Excerpt
 
The current was strong and pulling us away from the wreckage. I kept my arm around Aly, lifting her face. I creased my forehead, trying to work out our flight path. Where the fuck were we?
An ice-cold shard of panic pierced the pit of my stomach. I tried to ignore it. Fucking impossible. For the first time in my life since I was a child, events had overtaken me. Were out of my control. And there wasn’t a damn thing I could do other than try and survive.
Aly moaned and I whispered, “I’m here. You’re safe.”
She shivered and I held her close to share my body heat. Not that there was much of that. I was chilled to the bone.
I looked around again.
We were surrounded by nothing but rolling waves.
Stay calm. I repeated the words to myself like a mantra.
Hours passed, it seemed, although I wasn’t sure. I felt completely disoriented.
Aly had passed out again; I kept checking her pulse. My eyelids grew heavy and I wanted to doze off, but we’d be separated.
The sound of splashing.
A pod of dolphins had arrived, eyes flickering with curiosity.
“Hey, guys,” I managed to rasp. “Come to rescue us?” I laughed at the absurdity of my question.
With a wave of their tails, they left in obvious pursuit of some lunch.
The current took us further and further away from where the plane had gone down.
More splashing.
Rhythmical this time.
I swept my gaze around again and a slow smile of relief spread across my face. I let out a whoop. The sound I’d heard was the noise of waves hitting the barrier reef to an island. I could just see it in my peripheral vision.
I kicked my feet so frantically my shoes came off. Using the arm not holding Aly, I swam hard, fighting the current that was sweeping us parallel to land.
Kick, kick, kick.
I spotted a break in the waves and managed to propel us through it into the calm waters of a lagoon.
My lungs burning, I kept swimming until my feet touched the sandy bottom.
With the last vestiges of my energy, I heaved Aly out of the water onto the shore.
I turned her onto her side and tilted her head backwards. Then, totally wrung-out, I collapsed next to her.

A secret society.
A forbidden crush.
And an unsolved murder...
 
Emily Danes expected the tough classes at Campbell College, one of the most exclusive and prestigious universities in the world. She expected the ivy-covered halls. She expected the money.
 
She didn’t see Wolf Astor coming.
 
Obscenely wealthy, socially connected, and heart-stoppingly gorgeous, he’s everything she ever dreamed of in a man.
 
He’s also a total prick.
 
But at a place like Campbell College, there’s no escape. Not from Wolf, and not from the secrets hidden behind the graceful facades of the campus.
 
With every day that passes, she’s drawn deeper into the underbelly of the wealthy and privileged at Campbell: a secret society known as the Skulls & Thorns.
 
And with a murderer loose on campus, she’s running out of time to escape.

Excerpt
 
Pulling my two heavy textbooks for this class out of the stack too, I arrange everything nicely. Just as I am getting my brand new pencils ready, I am startled by a loud bang. My desk mate drops his books on the countertop and sits down, looking at me askance.
I startle to realize that it’s the blond Greek god I ran from only yesterday. Tall and broad-shouldered, he wears his black denim and dark blue tee shirt incredibly well. He knows it too, judging by his posture. He perches on his stool and crosses his arms, expectant. Perfectly unkempt sandy blond hair, dark brows spread wide over the darkest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, a patrician nose, two incredible cheekbones, and the most expressive lips… 
This guy is fucking hot, excuse my French.
Which are currently smirking at me. I knew hot guys back home in Prineville. Mostly I avoided them, truth be told. But this guy is on another level. He is so dazzling that he could work in television… and bad tv just so happens to be my weakness. 
Being around this guy is enough to make me rethink the bright yellow tee shirt dress I am wearing. I want more than anything to tug the hem down and smooth my hands over my black tights, but I don’t.
Instead I blush, fumbling to introduce myself. Sticking my hand straight out and tossing my messy blonde hair back, I try for an authoritative voice. “I’m Emily Danes.”
At the front of the classroom, the professor clears his throat, ready to start talking. My eyes dart to him, but then he reaches for his bunch of tissues again. Glancing back to my partner, I see him eye me up and down in a totally unsubtle way.
At last, he leans forward and shakes my hand. His skin against mine is hot. I bite my lip, refusing to let a little thing like instant animal attraction do me in.
“I’m Wolf,” he says, his voice low and gravelly. He looks me over once more. Then he arches a brow, his smirk deepening. “Did you find all of your panties last night?”
My cheeks instantly go the exact color of a ripe tomato. I lick my lips and frown. What am I supposed to say to that?

My Review
5 Stars
SEASIDE SERENADE by Melissa Foster is book 9 in the Seaside Summers and 8 in the Love in Bloom Series.  This is the story of Brock Garner and Cree Redmond.  I thought his could be a standalone book.
Cree and Brock are attracted to each other but a misunderstanding stands in their way until it cleared up.  This was a cute romance that was a joy to read...no real drama.  Ms. Foster is one of my favorite writers so I always know I am getting a great story by her.
Quick and Easy Read.

Excerpt:

Earlier this year, Mr. Thaddeus Middleton had realized he’d been placing all his attention on the same pool of ladies. The outgoing ones, the flirtatious ones, the ones who had known him for so long that every one of his dances was promised within moments of stepping foot in a ballroom. Such evenings were fun, but got him no closer to his goal. Worse, he might have spent the past decade skipping over all the most interesting women. Thad had immediately declared this season the Year of the Wallflower. By dedicating at least half of each evening to ladies he’d never danced with before, he’d met countless new friends… and no potential brides. But just because there had been no fireworks so far didn’t mean he was on the wrong track. In fact, the season had barely begun, and he’d already witnessed two unlikely love matches. Didn’t fortune come in threes? He turned a slow circle, paying close attention to those in the margins. Although gentlemen carried no dance cards, Thad kept careful track. He still had a handful of unclaimed sets. Some young lady here tonight might be the one to spark the fireworks he sought. There. An excited tingle of anticipation rushed through him. Dark brown curls, gorgeous brown eyes, dusky pink lips, an enticing combination of soft skin and lush curves wrapped in a gauzy roses-and-cream evening gown. He knew her name: Miss Priscilla Weatherby. They had been formally presented during her come-out four or five years ago, but hadn’t spoken since. Although a reasonably familiar face at society gatherings, Miss Weatherby rarely stood up for more than a quadrille or two and tended to guard her company. As such, her name had never been linked to gossip—or bandied about much at all. She was almost as much a fixture as the gilded columns and crimson ropes partitioning the ballroom. Not today. He rolled back his shoulders in determination. After being on the shelf for five years, Miss Weatherby had likely tired of being overlooked by unimaginative lordlings. If she had never danced a waltz, why, Thad would be honored to be the first to ask. He strode in her direction with confidence and good cheer. Even if no spark marked the occasion, at least they would get a dance out of it, and possibly a few laughs. Miss Weatherby might well become the most memorable set of the entire night. When he reached the pilaster whose shadow half-concealed her from view, Thad swept a glorious bow. “How do you do this evening, Miss Weatherby? Dare I hope room remains on your card for a dance?” She gazed back at him with a fathomless expression. “Why?” He blinked. “Er, because this is a ballroom. For dancing. The food might be wretched, but the orchestra is lovely. Unfortunately, it is impossible to dance a quadrille by oneself, so I wondered—” “I know what dancing is,” she interrupted, her dark eyes locked on his with amusement and heat. “Why would you want to do it with me?” Thad moved closer with interest. Now that the conversation had taken such an unprecedented turn, he wasn’t certain he wished to waste a thirty-minute set marking out the steps of a quadrille. Conversing with Miss Weatherby would be leagues more diverting. “We needn’t dance,” he said at once, and gave her a full smile. “I’m happy to promenade, if you prefer.” There was no sense hiding how intrigued he’d just become. Thad did not believe in playing games. Part of being in the right place at the right time meant not ruining the moment by feigning indifference. She tilted her head. “Did I do something to make you think I’d be interested in perambulating about a ballroom on your elbow?” “Er,” Thad said brightly. “That is…” “Or did you come here because you judged me to be a wallflower, and therefore desperate for the attention of some impossibly handsome gentleman with courtly manners and a contagious smile?” Impossibly handsome and courtly manners sounded wildly complimentary. Thad suspected it was not. “Er,” he said again. “Only a fool would believe all wallflowers—” “Only a fool,” she interrupted, “would assume a woman not dancing must be heartbroken over a lack of suitors. Perhaps the woman received plenty of offers and simply said, ‘No.’ Just like this.” Miss Weatherby stepped away from the pilaster and into the light, her upturned chin and plump lips suddenly close to his own. “No.” With a flutter of eyelashes, she turned and walked off. Thad stared after her, thunderstruck. Their encounter had been more sledgehammer than spark, but one thing was certain: Only a fool would overlook a woman like Miss Weatherby.

My Review
5 Stars
One Night of Passion by Erica Ridley is book Three in the Wicked Dukes Club Series. This is the story of Thaddeus 'Thad' Middleton and Priscilla Weatherby. I have read the previous books (and Loved them!) but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Priscilla wants to be independent but also wants to go on adventures and travels with her father. Priscilla's father also took to traveling just has his father did. But she has to go through hoops that are in place to get that independence. Priscilla must attend at 3 weekly events, have no scandals, to not marry and when she turns 25 she will inherit the money she feels will help her goal of being independent and to travel.
Thad feels that its time to marry and goes forward to meet the women that is to be his..."The One". But the only person he is attracted to is Priscilla who is the opposite of what he thinks he wants in a wife and he sure that she can't be the one for him. Priscilla knows that Thad would be the perfect husband for her if she was looking for one and goes forward to turn him away and resist her feelings. When Thad is encouraged by his friends and family to looking further into getting to know Priscilla he start to become aware that she might just be what he always wanted.
Loved their story and this series!!!

Concerto by Skye Warren is book Two in the North Security Series. This continues the story of Liam North and Samantha Brooks, so you really should read the first book 'Overture' to fully enjoy their story. This book picks up where we were left in the first book with Samantha leaving the security setting she was in to go on tour. Liam is still dealing with his feelings for Samantha along with wanting to keep her safe during her tour since danger to her is closer than ever.
Liam is a great book boyfriend and although Samantha was young she is a stronger character, even the secondary characters where great. Loved this book and Ms. Warren's writing.

Cover Designer: Bookin' it Designs

Billionaire CEO Zander Morgan hates to lose. To anyone. He also hates the fact that he is well-known for the architectural design app he created years ago and not for his more meaningful skills as an architect. This year, he is going to up the ante. The Architectural Award only comes out every three years and this year nothing is going to stop him from putting his name on it. With the designs he has for The Rink, he’s sure the award will be his…So long as he can keep his sexy little poker-playing opponent to stop her petition.
Jade Devereaux loves her job as a landmark preservationist. Preserving history is important for all generations—if only she could get her landlord to agree. Receiving notice that The Rink is going through a large overhaul, she comes up with a plan to stop renovations. It is, after all, the same building her parents got engaged in forty some years ago. It is a place where her mere existence was created.
Jade already lost her mother and with her dad now dying too, Jade is more determined than ever to do anything to honor her parent’s love story. Learning that the tall, dark and handsome man she plays poker with is the same man who is going to renovate the building, gives Jade a run for her money.
Already having a crush on Zander—he’s definitely a five-card stud—and finding out he’s the one that has plans to destroy part of the building, has Jade going all in. Will her attempts to stop construction push Zander to fold? Or is it possible that by saving her parent’s love story, she’s also making her own?

Love by Design by Ashley Bostock is book 4 in the Irresistible Billionaires Series.  This is the story of Jade Devereaux and Zander Morgan.  I haven't yet read the previous book but felt it could be a standalone book.  Zander is a wealthy CEO who created a architectural design app that is very popular but what he really wants to be known for is his architectural designs.   Zander feels that if he can get his designs noticed for The Rink he could possible win the Architectural Award.  Jade is a landmark preservationist and very passionate about preserving landmarks.  When she learns that The Rink is going to be going through changes in its design she of course is upset.  
Both Jade and Zander are very passionate about their sides but there is also the growing passion between the two.  Can these two work out a solution to have both of their goals and their passion?
Really enjoyed their story.

Blurb Edward Fasbender is a devil.

He's my father's business rival, a powerful, vicious man who takes what he wants and bows to no one. I only took the meeting because I was curious. I thought he was going to offer me a job.

But that's not what he's after at all. His proposal is much more intriguing, and I see an opportunity. An opportunity to turn the tables and bring down the devil.

I've gotten in trouble playing these games before. I know when the risk is too great, when the stakes are too high. I know how to be cold and strong-willed and destructive. I know how to withstand dominant men with arrogant charm and rugged features.

Yet I can't resist taking on Edward.

And I can't resist the pull he has on me.

Soon I'm not so sure which side of the battle I'm standing on--if I'm the warrior meant to slay,

Or the one who will be slain.

   

About the Author With over 1.5 million books sold world wide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author.

She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however.

When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
