About CD Reiss:
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine. _21A6258_pp-fb

My Review
 5 Stars

BROKEN EDGE by CD Reiss is book Three in The Edge series. This continues the story of Caden and Greyson. Since Caden and Greyson story started in earlier books in this series, I do feel you need to read them first.
Wow this has been a page turner of a series. Reading everything that Caden and Greyson are going through and seeing how strong Greyson is turning out to be. This books opens up more questions for me and I know the next book is the last one so that should give me my answers. This is definitely a 'edge of your seat' series. Can't wait for the next installment!

Blurb
 
At first, his words were harsh and his touch cold.
I knew he was a dangerous man and he could destroy me if only he wanted to.
 
That’s not what he wanted though. 
It’s so easy to get lost in the touch of a man who’s powerful and unattainable. 
A man who wants for nothing … except me.
Soft touches and stolen glances made my blood heat and my heart beat in a way I never knew it could.
 
Yes, it’s easy to fall into a haze of lust and desire.
But there’s a reason his reputation is one of a heartless man.
And I should have known better.

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!

Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

My Review:
5 Stars
   Heartless by Willow Winters is book Two in the Merciless series.  This continues the story of Carter and Aria from the previous book,  Merciless.  I strongly feel you need to read the previous book first before reading this one.
Carter is for sure a dark hero who starts off cruel toward Aria while trying to fight his feelings for her. Aria is fighting her feelings of love and hate toward Carter.  They both have personal issues and along with the other family members it is causing problems that they have to fight through.  This series is a dark one that keeps you on the edge of your seat reading.  It does leave us with another cliffhanger so that we can continue their story in the next book. 
Exciting read for sure!

Excerpt

I bolt upright on the couch, Calder’s name still on my lips. Thunder booms and lightning flashes, briefly illuminating the dark room just as Calder rounds the coffee table. Crouching next to me, he brushes my hair away from my face, his hand warm against my clammy skin. “Are you okay? I just walked in and freaked when you called out my name. You sounded terrified.”
 
“I must’ve fallen asleep.” I lean into his comforting touch as I pick up my phone from the coffee table. “What time is it?” I mumble so he thinks that’s why I’m checking the screen. It was a dream. Celeste didn’t send any more texts. I exhale in relief.
 
Thunder vibrates the windows and Calder shakes his head as he slides his hand into my hair. “I can’t believe you slept through all this racket.” Pulling me forward, he kisses my forehead, then quickly looks at me with a worried gaze. “You’re trembling.”
 
“It was just a nightmare.” Taking a steadying breath, I offer a wry smile. “I was dreaming about Celeste.” 
 
He instantly scowls. “Now I see why you called it a nightmare. Wonder why she’s starring in your dreams after all this time?”
 
I sigh. Now that I’ve cut off all communication, I might as well tell him about her text. “She tried to contact me today.”
 
His expression hardens and his whole body tenses. “You didn’t respond, did you?”
 
“Only to tell her not to contact me anymore.” I don’t need a lecture. It’s over and done.
 
“Good,” he says, visibly relaxing. “The last thing we need is Celeste returning from the dead. All hell would break loose.”
 
“I completely agree.” Wrapping my hand around his wrist, I adopt a calm expression and search his gaze in the darkness. “Are you okay?”
 
“I’ve just been spending too much time in my own head.” He quickly scoops me up in his arms, his hold on me especially tight.
 
“What are you doing?” My heart races as I grip his broad shoulders. Keep holding me tight, Calder. Promise to never let me go, no matter what.
 
“Apologizing,” Calder murmurs as he nuzzles my neck while carrying me upstairs. The thunder rumbles in a low bass and the rain rushes against the windows as we enter our darkened room.
 
I’m surprised that he doesn’t lower me to my feet but instead sets me on the edge of our chaise lounge near the window. Lightning flashes as he towers over me and tilts my chin up. The churning of the storm just outside the window amplifies his heated gaze, spiking my adrenaline. As he begins to tug off his tie, I keep my gaze locked with his and wait for him to speak, but he doesn’t say a word. He loops his tie around the scrollwork at the top of the lounge’s back, then shrugs out of his jacket.
 
I’m so mesmerized as he unbuttons his dress shirt, that my gaze devours every inch of his gorgeous body as he peels the shirt away. From his six-pack abs to his broad chest, I’ll never get tired of burying my face against his warm, muscular frame. For now I don’t mind the silence between us. He’s here. That’s all that matters. We’ll work through this.
 
When he lowers himself to his knees in front of me, my hand instantly traces the inked raven feathers curved around his left shoulder and down his bicep. “I love this raven wing so much,” I say in a quiet voice. “I think it’s wonderful that others will be able to appreciate this masterpiece in Alana’s book, and that you’re a man of your word.”
 
Capturing my hand, he presses his lips to my palm in a slow tantalizing kiss. I take a shaky breath, trying not to get too emotional at how much he makes me feel with just a simple press of his lips to my skin. But he does. Every time, he melts me.

My Review:
5 Stars
Blood Rose by P.T. Michelle is book 8 in the "In the Shadows" series.  This is the story of Calder and Cass.  This can be a standalone book but Cass and Calder did meet in previous books (I think they are GOLD SHIMMER and STEEL RUSH) that I haven't yet read. 
This book picks up with Cass and Calder looking to be married.  Calder is still dealing with his new found family that he doesn't want anything to do with since what their father (his father too) did to his mother.  Between personal issues, doubts and fighting the past bumps in the road are happening through their relationship but they are heading towards their happy ending.
Really enjoyed this book and now really want to go back and read the previous ones!

BLURB:

Aiden Dwyer, a Queens construction worker, doesn’t know a salad fork from a dessert fork, unlike his best friend from college, Sebastian Parker, a privileged son from a blue-blooded Manhattan family who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Seb’s always got Aiden’s back. The same can’t be said for Seb’s little sister, Bea, who finds pleasure in mocking Aiden for his lack of social standing.

A permanent fixture in New York City gossip columns, Beatrice (Bea) Parker is known as “The Park Avenue Princess.” But nobody knows that the pillar of young Manhattan society has an alter-ego on an online dating site for “discreet singles.”

Lying dormant under all of their jokes and teasing is Aiden and Bea’s unrequited desire for each other. When he discovers Bea’s greatest secret, Aiden risks his friendship with Sebastian to fulfill her fantasies and make his hunger for her a reality.

Warning: This epistolary novel contains flirtatious banter, double entendres, interfering parents, a heroine who leads a secret life, and a hero who could have everything he ever wanted if he plays his cards right.

Breaking-Mr-Cane-PRINT-FOR-WEB
KANDY
 
I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I'd tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.
The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand--thought everything was perfect--but in the blink of an eye, he was gone, leaving me with no choice but to pretend that what we had never existed.
 
CANE
She was off-limits to me, but I pushed the boundaries anyway. Now, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, my career slowly but surely slipping out of my grasp, and ghosts from my past returning to make things much more complicated.
My love life had never meant so much to me until I met Kandy.
After being knocked down and left stranded, any sane man would have stayed far away, but I wasn't sane--not by a long shot.
I knew reality was harsh, and the universe had all the odds stacked against us. Despite it all, nothing was going stop me from making her mine again.
And if someone tried, they were going to have to go over my dead body first.

Excerpt:
Like he’d promised, he was waiting for me up front. He was standing in front of the exit with his hands tucked in his pockets and a pair of sunglasses covering his eyes, like he’d just arrived. I spotted him before he could see me, and my heart sped up several notches the closer I got. Seeing him, reminded me of when I was a little girl and was looking at him for the first time. Though I was hopeless, the sunglasses shielding his eyes and his bad boy demeanor did something to me—whirled me up inside and drove me crazy. He looked around for a moment like he could feel someone watching him, and when he was facing my direction, he put on a warm, welcoming smile, pulling the sunglasses off. He opened his arms and I dragged my suitcase on it’s wheels, rushing into them. I hugged him hard and squeezed so tight. This hug was exactly what I needed. No questions, just outpouring love. My parents would have hounded me first, questioned me later, and maybe hug me after making the same “mistake” twice. And that was a big maybe. But Cane was no mistake. He couldn’t be. Why would he have been brought into my life, if we weren’t meant to be something? It didn’t make any sense. There had to be a reason for this. There had to be happiness at the end of our story.

My Review
5 Stars
BREAKING MR. CANE by Shanora Williams is book Two in the Cane series. This continues the story of Kandy and Cane. I feel strongly that you need to read the previous book 'Wanting Mr. Cane' to understand their story. This picks up with Kandy starting her new life at college and with Cane trying to deal with the aftermath of their hot relationship. Neither can forget the other which leads them to each other of course. I am so in love with this series! I just can't wait for their happy ending...yes this book does leave us with a cliffhanger to set up up for the next installment.

FREED
Fall for the missing Ward sister…
Juliette Collins is privileged and isolated from the world by her over-protective father. She thinks she knows the truth about her history until a file in her father’s safe reveals she has sisters she never knew about. A family she’s never met. Betrayed, she realizes there’s a life waiting for her outside the walls of her daddy’s New York City penthouse and Juliet is determined to live it. Against her father’s wishes, she heads to a small beach community to meet her siblings… and finds herself way out of her depth instead.
In the personal protection business, Braden Clark thinks nothing of taking on a job to watch over a city girl in town for the summer. If her father wants to know his daughter is safe, it’s no problem and an easy way of earning a paycheck. Except Braden doesn’t count on falling for the sheltered Juliette. Watching her experience her firsts, getting an apartment, finding a job, meeting up with her lost sisters, soon Braden’s brand of protection becomes a little too personal. He’s mixing business with pleasure and lying to a woman he’s coming to care deeply about.
Sexual attraction burns bright between them and Braden is by her side as she finds herself, her family, and what it means to love... but what happens when she discovers his secret? That he’s been paid to watch over her all along?

My Review
 5 Stars
FREED by Carly Phillips is book three in the Rosewood Bay series. This is the story of Juliette Collins and Braden Clark. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone if you choose to do so. Juliette only had her father so she thought until she happens upon information that she finds her mother is still alive and she has two half-sisters. Juliette father has been somewhat controlling of her keeping her in check with his health issues. But she breaks away to go see about her new found family. Braden is dealing with his own issue with his father who has Alzheimer and the family PI business. So when a well off man asked him to take a job looking after his daughter he thinks this will be easy and a way to help him and the business. But the women he is to watch is Juliette and she is anything but easy for him.
Loved reading their story and seeing Juliette finally meeting her family.

All I wanted to do was love her.
 
I couldn’t break her when she’d finally been put back together . . . when she was finally mine.
 
I was a coward, a bigger a**hole than her ex-husband, a more selfish pr*ck than her brother.
 
But London didn’t know that.
 
She only saw me as the man who would give her the world, the man who owned her heart.
 
And even though the confession burned the tip of my tongue and begged to be spit out and set free, I couldn’t do it.
 
Not yet . . . I needed to hold on to this lie for just a little while longer to keep her safe.

You fight through your tequila-induced haze, trip over his designer suit crumpled on the floor, and run.
After all, you’re 1500 miles from home. It’s not like you’ll ever see him again.
 
Unless you’re me. 
 
Fast forward six months and I somehow find myself in the middle of a bet with Mr Tall, Dark, and Tattooed that includes me owing him four dates. Four dates with an arrogantly charming man who I know little about, what could possibly go wrong?
 
Oh, I don’t know, maybe falling asleep in his arms on date three and realizing I’m in love with a man who doesn’t even know my real name.

HOW THE EARL ENTICES Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 Anna Harrington

 

“You are not a gentleman.” Her words were so soft that they were nearly lost beneath the rain pounding against the roof. “You are despicable.”

She held her breath and stood her ground, waiting for him to unleash his fury on her. It was what Vincent would have done. Just like her brother-in-law, would this stranger have enjoyed hurting her?

But instead of a harsh warning—or making good on his threat to tie her up—he forced a tight smile and turned back to mutter into the fire, “So much more than you know.”

He was quickly lost in his own thoughts, but Grace knew he was still aware of her and every move she made. If she attempted to run, he would pounce before she reached the door.

Entering her bedroom, she hesitated in the doorway. Part of her contemplated defying him and closing the door anyway. Would serve him right! But something in her gut told her not to press him. So far he’d kept true to his word and not attempted to hurt her, and the last thing she should do was provoke his anger. The night was half over now; by dawn the storm would be weakening, and then he’d be gone. She only had to wait him out.

Even knowing that, though, her fingers trembled as she shrugged out of the wet coat, then reached for her dress and undergarments in her dresser. The room was dark, and the shadows hid her from view, yet she took repeated glances over her shoulder to make certain he still kept his distance, still standing at the fireplace with his eyes focused on the flames.

After she’d changed into her dress and wrapped a shawl securely around her shoulders, she blew out a deep, silent breath of relief. Both at finally being properly dressed and that the stranger hadn’t moved from where she’d left him.

Her hands fumbled with putting up her damp hair as she emerged from the bedroom, with two hairpins between her lips. Grudgingly, she mumbled around them, “Thank you for not—”

He glanced up from the fire as she stepped from the shadows, his face fully visible in the firelight.

She halted in mid-step, her breath catching in her throat at the intensity of his stare as it trailed slowly over her. Not lasciviously, not predaciously—she’d expected that. Instead, he gazed at her in an assessing manner, a look filled with such deliberate aloofness that she couldn’t help but see the arrogant reserve beneath, the cool detachment…

At that moment, a long-forgotten memory rushed over her like a tidal wave. She placed him in her mind, as clearly as the moment she first saw him over ten years earlier at that crowded ball in London, and she shuddered.

Ross Carlisle, Viscount Mooreland, heir to the Earl of Spalding…

Dear God—so much worse than a stranger!

Breaking Mr. Cane, the gripping, steamy follow up to the bestselling forbidden romance, Wanting Mr. Cane, from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shanora Williams is LIVE!

Breaking-Mr-Cane-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg
KANDY
 
I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I'd tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.
The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand--thought everything was perfect--but in the blink of an eye, he was gone, leaving me with no choice but to pretend that what we had never existed.
 
CANE
She was off-limits to me, but I pushed the boundaries anyway. Now, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, my career slowly but surely slipping out of my grasp, and ghosts from my past returning to make things much more complicated.
My love life had never meant so much to me until I met Kandy.
After being knocked down and left stranded, any sane man would have stayed far away, but I wasn't sane--not by a long shot.
I knew reality was harsh, and the universe had all the odds stacked against us. Despite it all, nothing was going stop me from making her mine again.
And if someone tried, they were going to have to go over my dead body first.

My Review:
5 Stars
BREAKING MR. CANE by Shanora Williams is book Two in the Cane series.  This continues the story of Kandy and Cane.  I feel strongly that you need to read the previous book 'Wanting Mr. Cane' to understand their story.  This picks up with Kandy starting her new life at college and with Cane trying to deal with the aftermath of their hot relationship.  Neither can forget the other which leads them to each other of course.  I am so in love with this series!  I just can't wait for their happy ending...yes this book does leave us with a cliffhanger to set up up for the next installment. 

 

The Rule Breaker by Cat Carmine


 
 
Title: The Rule Breaker
Author: Cat Carmine
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
 
Release Date: July 12, 2018

Blurb
 
He’s the bad boy … but I’m the one breaking all the rules. 
 
I’ve always been the quintessential good girl. I don’t just follow the rules — I write them. As an advice columnist, I’m always telling people how to not screw up their lives. 
 
So you’d think I’d know better than to bang some random guy in a bar bathroom. 
 
Nope. Apparently not.
 
Now I’ve got even bigger problems, though. Because it turns out that wasn’t just some random guy. It was Tyler Grant. Rich. Playboy. Devastatingly gorgeous. Oh, and the publisher of my new dating advice book. 
 
All my instincts are telling me to run like hell. It’s what I’d advise anyone else to do. 
 
Nope. I’ve had a taste, and I’m hooked.
 
Now I’m calling him at ungodly hours and showing up at his house drunk and begging for sex and tacos. In other words, breaking every rule in my own damn book.
 
Of course, you don’t have to be an advice columnist to know a bad boy and a good girl are never going to work out. Someone’s going to get their heart broken. 
 
And my guess? It isn’t going to be him.

My Review
5 Stars
The Rule Breaker by Cat Carmine is the story of Tyler Grant and Emma Holloway.
Emma is a blogger / advice columnist who has now written her own book called 'Miss Emma's Rules for Dating: A Guide to Modern Relationships'. While out promoting it she happens to meet a hot guy and has casual sex with him thinking a mistake...but one she won't see again. But who does he turn out to be none other than the publisher of her new book.
This book was just a joy to read and see how their love story would play out.

Because You’re Mine by Claire Contreras Publication Date: July 12th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Because You're Mine AMAZON

When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it's easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news.

They're the ones with experience. The ones with secrets. The ones that exude sex just by saying your name.

From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn't just bad news. He was the headline.

My opinion didn't change on our second meeting.

Or our third.

But my head and my heart are at war.

He’s too mysterious, too gorgeous, too wild, and now, he wants me. I should run far away. So why am I racing toward him? I’m totally going to get burned. I know it. A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed. He'll make ashes of me.

I never wanted a wife. Until I met her.
All my life I've been a lone-wolf. My favorite things are fast cars and a glass of brandy after a long day.
Things were perfect. Until my father reminded me he controls my inheritance.
If I don't bring a wife to the next family vacation, he's cutting me off.
I hate having my hand forced...
But I've got a plan.
I asked my assistant to find me the most non-wife-material girl he can dig up.
Once I parade her in front of my father, he'll be begging me to divorce her.
I'll keep my inheritance without having to change my life for anyone.
It seemed so easy.
Then I met her.
She's everything I never knew I wanted.
And when she finds out I picked her because I thought she'd never fit into my world...
It'll break her heart.
This novel contains a hot alpha billionaire who NEEDS a wife. He won't rest until she's locked down with his ring on her finger. NO cheating, lots of kindle-melting actions, and always a happily ever after!
                   
EXCERPT
 
“Hi,” I tell the receptionist. “I’m here for the intern program?”
The receptionist doesn’t answer at first. She’s too busy staring off at the far corner of the lobby. I follow her gaze, turning to see two men in deep conversation. One, the older one, looks vaguely familiar. The younger one looks angry, and a lot like the older man, and also… well. I can tell why the receptionist is distracted. Because damn, that man is built.
He has to be, what, 6’4”, 6’5”? And all lean muscle, too. Not body-builder huge, but the sort of guy who could unexpectedly lift you single-handedly and drag you in a fireman’s carry to the nearest bed. With those sharp biceps of his, the cut jawline and razor cheekbones over his perfect bow lips, I could imagine a thing or two to do in bed with him.
Just then, as though sensing my gaze—or maybe the receptionist’s—he turns. I catch a glimpse of dark, sharp eyes. The kind of eyes that could pin you in place with one glance, while he went to work spreading your legs open, bending you over a desk…
My cheeks go hot, and I whip around. Somewhere behind me, I catch a distant shout, and then a door slams. Only then does the receptionist tear her eyes away, back to me. She smiles once, apologetically.
“Just spying on the family drama,” she says with a laugh and a little flutter of a sigh that doesn’t convince me. Sure. Drama. That’s why you were eying Mr. Hunky over there like a fresh cut of steak. “That’s Mr. Quint and his son, Jasper,” she clarifies, in response to my blank stare.
Oh. My eyes widen. That’s why the older man looked familiar. Antoine Quint—I’ve seen his photo in about a thousand magazines, usually in those Magnate of the Year type features, but occasionally in the Rich Older Men (And Their Hot Wives) type categories too. With a father like that, and a mother like the bombshell I’ve seen pictured on Antoine’s arm at red carpet photo shoots, it’s no wonder his son—Jasper—is so distracting.

So him and his cousin/assistant comes up with finding the less perfect women for a pertain marriage to to make is so that his father wants him to 'divorce' her. Which enters Dee into the mix of being that women. Jasper thinks Dee would be perfect with her Walmart look, poor and looking to get a internship with his company. Dee at first wasn't on board but in need of this internship and with the promise of a letter of reconsideration she can't say no.

My Review
5 Stars
EDGE by ANNA BROOKS is book Three in the Guarding Her series. This is the story of Quinn and Wes. I have read the previous books, but feel this can easily be a standalone book.
Quinn is a young pop star who has a stalker so much so that they needed to call in a body guard. This is were Wes enters into her life. Wes who is still sore from a breakup goes in with the misconception that Quinn will be just another diva pop singer who his business usually guards. But he finds himself with someone who is totally different and he is instantly attracted too... Quinn also feels the attraction. But Quinn has other issue besides the 'stalker' her Aunt Gail who is also her manger. Quinn has a mixed up relationship with her Aunt that works to impact her relationships and career.
Enjoyed reading their story!

Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.

He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal.

Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.

But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to hide it.

Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?
