Her Wicked Ride by Tilly Greene




Blurb:
Brian Mulligan fixes cars. He rides a Harley, is covered in tattoos and has spent time in jail. Since being released he’s tried to live a clean life, but he’s a bad boy with women, very bad and terribly sexy. Bondage, domination, and so much more, are his preferences when playing with the ladies, and there have been a variety until the last one. 

For the first time, he had to work for a yes. All summer, they’ve had fabulously wild no-holds-barred sex, but one morning everything changes. With chaos in the garage, a cup of coffee in hand, and a half-naked Sherry Gonzales in his lap, his eyes are opened to wanting more with her. Brian’s solution is to go on a date, their first date. 

The night starts out fine. They get wicked on the back of his bike before the nights takes a turn, but for the good or bad? 

Note from Author: Her Wicked Ride, a contemporary erotic romance + D/s and tattoos, is 24k words and this is its first release.

My review:
Another sweet and sexy read from Tilly Greene.  I am conflicted. I loved the hero a bad boy trying to be a good man and dealing with being in love for the first time.  I wasn’t so thrilled with his leading lady.  Sherry didn’t strike me as submissive just a pushover.  I like my leading ladies with a bit more spine.  The story is good and has some great secondary characters that I would love to find out more about.

Give Up the Ghost (Phantoms #2) by Kelly Moran



Blurb:
Sometimes the only way to find love is to face death...

Paranormal investigator Kerry Baker has seen it all. But nothing in her work with the Phantoms team prepares her for the most terrifying ghost of all―seeing her doppelganger. Rumored to be a foreshadowing of one's death, the spectre shakes Kerry to the core...sending her into the arms of her best friend and fellow Phantom cast member, Paul Leake, for comfort.
Until a kiss changes everything.
Paul has been in love with Kerry for ages, unwilling to compromise their friendship. As their investigation in a ghost town grows more intense, however, so does the chemistry between Paul and Kerry. With her life in danger and their jobs on the line, giving into their attraction couldn't be a worse idea―and yet they can't bring themselves to stop it. Even if it kills her...

My review:
This is better than the first one!  I loved this book.  Kerry is strong and a bit damaged and who wouldn’t fall for the sexy geek Paul.  This is a fun friends to lovers tale with a fab mystery.  I recommend reading Ghost of a Promise (Phantoms #1) first so you can get a feel for the way the Phantoms team works but you can read this stand alone.  I couldn’t put it down. Go get this book.

Witches Be Burned (Magic & Mayhem #2) by Stacey Kennedy



Blurb:
In Stacey Kennedy’s steamy paranormal romance novel, a rookie guardian sworn to combat the undead risks life and love in a world of violence, witchcraft, and seduction.

Nexi Jones has lost her family, she’s been stripped of her guardian duties, and she’s still learning the ins and outs of white magic. At least she has Kyden, the smoldering hot elite guardian who’s been there for her every step of the way. But just as Nexi completes her training, tragedy strikes the Otherworld when a fellow guardian is murdered by a group of rogue vampires. Ready or not, she and Kyden trek into the Earthworld to hunt down a killer—and Nexi alone will be put to the ultimate test.

Although Kyden knows that Nexi must fight her own battles, his guardian instincts are raging as he struggles to keep her close. The ruthlessness of these vampires is like nothing he’s ever seen. And at their helm is the Black Witch Astoria, a demon with one burning desire: to shed Nexi’s blood in the name of vengeance. What troubles Kyden even more, though, is the warlock who covets Nexi’s heart. Let the devil do his worst . . . all Kyden can do is love and protect Nexi until his last breath.

My review:
Do you want to take a screaming roller coaster ride through a world with witches, werewolves, vampires and other supernatural creatures exist?  This is not your everyday paranormal fantasy.  Stacey Kennedy has created a fantastic world where the impossible happens with astonishing regularity. Witches Be Burned is a believable tale with politics, back biting and romance .  Witches Be Burned is the second in the series but can be read stand alone.  The prolog gives you the high points from the first book.  So, strap in and get ready for a fun ride.

50 Ways to Ruin a Rake (Rakes and Rogues #1) by Jade Lee



Blurb:

Mellie has a plan…

Mellie Smithson is trapped in the country with no suitors and no prospects on the horizon except, perhaps, the exasperating—although admittedly handsome—guest of her father. She's looking for any excuse to go to London to meet more eligible men.

Trevor has a problem…

Trevor Anaedsley's grandfather has cut off his funds until such time as he gets engaged. Trevor escapes to the country—ostensibly to visit his old tutor, Mr. Smithson, but actually to duck his creditors—where he meets Smithson's lovely daughter, Mellie. The obvious solution is suddenly before him—but the lady has ideas of her own, and Trevor's going to have to measure up…

My Review:

This is said to be the first in a series and it can be read standalone but we meet up with Radley and Wendy from What A Groom Wants (Bridal Favors #4). 
Trevor is a future Duke.  He has been taken to task by his Grandfather the current Duke who has ordered him to find a wife and has cut off funds until he gets engaged.  Mellie Smithson is the bright daughter of his tutor, a wealthy mill owner and scientist. She wants to go to London to find a husband and he needs a fiancé. The plan isn’t perfect but it sure is fun.   
Jade Lee writes a fun, smart historical that will keep you turning pages.

A Leopard's Path (Ashwood Falls #5) by Lia Davis




Blurb:
Stolen from her family as an infant, Ana Darwin-Andrews has to piece together her past and present. Her whole life is a lie. There’s only one man she feels she can trust, but even he has secrets.

Kieran Michaels keeps a tight lid on his past, but the Onyx Alpha knows his darkest secrets. Kieran will stop at nothing to destroy the rogue before the past is reveled. Ana can never discover his hands are as bloodstained as their enemy’s, because life without her is not an option.

My review:
This book will be so much better if you have read the earlier ones in this series.  
Ana was stolen away as a baby and raised in the enemy camp.  She has recently come home to her true father and family.  Along with her came the spy who is her true mate but for some reason he is putting off their mating and she has about had it.  Sure there is a war going on and she has yet to reveal all that she can do but she is only following the paths she was raised with.  She may never truly fit in but mating with Kieran could only help right?
This wasn’t my favorite of the Ashwood Falls books but it wasn’t bad either.  I like Ana but Kieran didn’t do a whole lot for me. I really want Jareds book and this sets that up; hopefully soon.

Show Me the Honey: Sweet & Dirty BBW Romance by Cathryn Cade




Blurb:
When a small town cafe owner is grabbed by a rambling biker looking for nearly a million in stolen cash, she must convince him to let her go. But finding out he has the wrong woman only makes him more determined to hang onto her ... this time for all the right reasons. 
Lindi Carson has no time for romance in her life--not when she's scrambling to make a success of her Coeur d’Alene Lake shore café. She's barely keeping her head above water when biker Jack Moran hits town, sure she knows where to find nearly a million in stolen cash. When Jack grabs her, Lindi must convince him he has the wrong woman. 
But Jack's not the only one after the money, and someone is willing to kill to get it. With murder lurking in this idyllic resort town and a dangerous MC on the prowl, Jack must persuade Lindi she belongs not only under his protection … but in his arms. He'll use every ounce of his rough charm to get her, but he may have to battle old ghosts to keep her there. 
Can he convince her that love's sweetness is worth the sting? 
A Sweet & Dirty BBW Romance 


Can he convince her that love's sweetness is worth the sting?

My review:
Do you like alpha, sexy, dirty talking guys with a bit of swagger?  Then you will love Jack. Jack is an interesting character.  He has a lot of characteristics that normally would set me off but they are offset by a sense of honor and the fact that he can and does apologize when he is in the wrong.  Lindi is a young woman forced to grow up way to young.  She is naïve in some ways and ancient in others but in the end the bad boy just does it for her.
This is a fun, fast paced read that I devoured in one sitting.  Grab a tall cold drink, a fan, and get ready for some seriously sweet & dirty romance.  I am looking forward to Keys story as he really intrigued me.

Interview With an Accidental (Accidentally Paranormal Series) by Dakota Cassidy



Blurb:
“Sweet Baby Jesus in booty shorts! Marty, Wanda, and Nina are back!”New York Times bestselling author, Robyn Peterman. 

National bestselling author of The Accidental Dragon, Dakota Cassidy is puttin’ on her tiara, sharpening her fav hot pink pen, and kicking her feet up on the desk to ask the hard questions. Get the inside scoop on all the hot, sexy cast members in this free, uproariously funny interview with the girls of her Accidental series. Find out who’s doing what to whom and more, as Dakota hosts the interview of the decade!

Dear Readers, It’s been seven (seven!) years since the release of book one in my Accidentals series, dear readers, and now, on the cusp of releasing book ten (hold me!), I figured it was high time I put together something that would not only help new readers jump into the fray several books in, but also help me remember what I wrote way back when. (Hey, I ain’t gettin’ any younger, and my brain is stuffed full of makeup tips and reality TV trivia.) 

So I called up my pals Nina, Marty and Wanda, who schlepped all the way out to my home in Oregon—with a few other fan-fave characters in tow, for Interview With an Accidental. During an intimate interview by moi, you can meet the ladies who have been mainstays in all of my Accidental books—if Nina lets anyone get a word in between all her, um…colorful commentary.

Grab a cocktail and enjoy a gabfest with the girls, as well as a bonus chapter from my next book, Accidentally Aphrodite—for the low, low price of free! That’s right. FREE! Consider it my way of saying thanks for keeping me company on these crazy Accidental adventures. May you join me for many more!

My review:
For those who have yet to experience the craziness that is the Accidentally Paranormal Series by Dakota Cassidy she has put out this free book to get you caught up as she enters a new phase with the gals of OOPS. I really have to wonder about an author interviewing her characters and taking backtalk (Nina) from them.  If you haven’t read the Accidentally Paranormal Series(you really should) by Dakota Cassidy then this should help you catch up just in time for the next in the series Accidentally Aphrodite.
