Blog Tour: The Contract Series by Melanie Moreland

 

The Contract
(The Contract Series Book 1)

Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.

Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.

Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract — fiancée instead of PA.

What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?

Sparks.

That’s what happens.

Can the power of love really change a person?

Will they survive the contract?

What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

Review: 4.5/5 Stars

This is the first book that I have read that was m/f in a long time, and it did not disappoint. The story is mainly from Richards POV with Katherine’s POV thrown in a few times. Richard got passed up for promotion, and he doesn’t take that too kindly, so he wants to switch jobs, but in order to work for the company he wants to he has to change who he is, and boy does he need to change. Richard and Katherine enter into a contract, and as they say the rest is history.

I will start by saying that I wanted to punch Richard in the face like hard core, punch him. He started the book off being an ass. Granted I get why he was upset, but even after what caused his upset, he was still an ass. I’m not going to lie, I truly wavered between a 3 and a 3.5 star review, but as the story goes on, Richard mellows out which was a redeeming quality to me.

Katherine also know as Katy, was a good match for Richard, even though they started the relationship for both her and Richard’s gain. Although if I was her, Richard would have been cussed out so many times, but she took the high road. More power to her.

Although there relationship started as a farce, they went through the ups and downs as a couple that were in a committed relationship. They had there moments where Richard was sweet and where Richard was totally douche, which after Katy stopped working for him in the office she didn’t take it. She called him on his bs.

I also enjoyed the supporting characters and watching Richard turn into a decent man. This was a great read and I would definitely recommend it.

Review: 5/5 Stars

This was a cute quick read, even though I felt it could have been the epilogue of The Contract, but I get that sometimes the author thinks  they are done writing a story, but either the characters or the fans want more.

In this story we see a softer more protective side of Richard and it was endearing. Nice add on to the series.

Even though I know the baby’s name I will play along.

Ne’Vaeh Duchess VanRyan.
(I think it has a nice ring to it lol.)

Release Day Launch: Irrefutable by Kimberly Bracco

Title: Irrefutable
Series: Apprehensive Duet, Book 2
Author: Kimberly Bracco
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Release Date:  May 20, 2016
Quinn Taylor had a plan, and it didn’t include Alex Conway. 


With Quinn’s decisions no longer her own, her friends questioning her judgment, her life spinning out of control; she’s not sure about anything she once believed in. Alex has found something to believe in – Quinn. He knows what life is like without her and it a life he no longer wants to live.

Just when it seems things can’t get any worse, chaos ensues leaving them both out of time and out of options. Should Alex try for Quinn’s love without a guarantee in sight? Will Quinn be able to marry one man, to save herself, while knowing it will destroy the one man who truly loves her? Their lives are about to be flipped upside down – one way or another. Will they have the strength to work against life’s obstacles and find true happiness together? Can Alex get Quinn to see she’s about to make a huge mistake? Can he show her a side of love that’s irrefutable?


Can I trust him? That’s the biggest question I need to answer before I can say a word about the driving force of this wedding. A wedding that’s supposed to take place in less than eight hours. For two years I thought of Alex as this amazing man, the man who was going to change my world. I let him in—I gave him parts of me I never gave anyone else, and I’m not just talking about sex. Alex got further in than anyone else since my time as an immature teenager, and it ended in a lot of confusion and hurt. My walls are my safety net; I put them there for a reason. No one had ever gotten past them, and I thought that’s how it was always going to be—until Alex.

But Jordan made it in too. I tried to hate him, but it didn’t work. Jordan isn’t my enemy. How can I hurt him? He’s stood by me through everything my dad has done to me. He may not know the full weight of my father’s threats, but he’s still been my rock through it all. When everyone else had something negative to say about what we’re doing, Jordan had my back, to the point of being willing to marry me to save me.

review[1]
4.5/5 Stars

I’m a big fan of Ms. Bracco. Her characters come to life off the pages, even if I want to slap the hell out of the female leads. We meet Alex and Quinn in the Uninhibited series. Their characters where so great together I was rooting for their book. When I got it in Fallacy, I was like oh shit that’s what I’m talking about.

After reading Irrefutable, I’m still happy they got a story but only because of Alex. I do not like Quinn, at all, and that’s bad because she’s the lead. I wanted to like her and maybe at the end I could tolerate her, but that’s only because of Alex.

Alex is that perfect man, well mine anyways. He supported Quinn even after she tore his heart out and stomped on it. That man still had hope for the woman he loved, but that woman did not deserve him.

Ms. Bracco takes you through a journey with this book, she paints the picture and it comes together fabulously. It’s the journey of finding yourself, for both Quinn and Alex, although I don’t think Alex had far to look. When they came out on top, I was happy for them until the next chapter coming from Alex’s point of view. I swear that chapter broke my heart, then when the next chapter came from Quinn’s point of view, I was giving high fives to Ashley in my head. Because I swear she said what needed to be said.

Irrefutable is an emotional ride, I was happy, sad, angry and pissed off. (Last two mainly at Quinn.) It was a page turning, and if I were reading it as a life story, I would want both Quinn and Alex to come on top, if only for Alex’s sake.

 

Kimberly is a stay at mom of four crazy beautiful children. She lives in New Jersey with her husband of ten years and enjoys every minute of her never dull life. She loves a good book that is impossible to put down and you will mostly likely find her reading in her downtime, unless of course, there is a football game on.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

I’m going to say this first, you really need to read the first two books in this series. If you don’t you will be confused and want to know what the heck happened with Spencer and Jami. (Really bad thing is I bought the first two books and did not realize it until after I finished this book, so I need to do some catching up.)

Spencer and Olivia both have their own addiction and problems, but one thing is clear, they are meant for each other and realize that they need each other to get through their rough patch in life.

The raw emotions with Olivia almost had me in tears, the struggle was real and though I don’t know anyone personal there are people out there who does what Olivia did.  J.C. painted a picture of a troubled woman, but one who knew her short comings and was seeking help for it.

Spencer he was the type that I felt didn’t care. I mean, like I said I didn’t read the first two books, but when he was trying to make it work with Olivia, I saw the change in him. It was great and he too was seeking help for his short comings. Got to love a man who is willing to try and make himself better.

Overall great read though with the epilogue I was with the two women on did I just miss something and I read the entire book. Can’t wait to read more in the series. Well after I catch up on the first two books.

BURN BROTHERS OF INK AND STEEL

Burn (Brothers of Ink and Steel #2)

Genre: M/F, New Adult Romance

Synopsis:

Liam Knight, a sexy panty-melting, hard-bodied streetfighter and renowned tattoo artist, is rising up the ranks of the UFC Middleweight Division, but he’s about to get knocked out by his past.

Quinn Kelley is a semester away from becoming a college graduate when her mother’s death sends her spiraling, forcing her to go back to her hometown and a past she can’t outrun.

Nearly a decade ago, Liam and Quinn fell in love while surviving on the city streets together, but they were torn apart by one irreversible night. Now each has moved forward without the other, but like a tattoo on the heart, absolute love creates a lasting burn.

Quinn has kept a tight rein on her emotions, but with the passing of her mother, the foundation she’s built begins to crack. Will seeing Liam again crumble her fortress to the ground, uncovering the flame that still burns? Or will it extinguish the fire forever?

Liam’s tough exterior and resentful demeanor hides more than a wounded heart. He’s tormented by guilt over what happened to Quinn—and the secret he kept, even from her. But revealing his secrets would require unearthing the all-consuming monster he keeps caged in the darkest part of his soul, the one that threatens to devour him.

When they’re given a second chance, will they let go of their fear and pride and let the flame between them become one?

Or will the heat burn them both?

Burn_teaser_2

Excerpt:

One more hour before Josh shows up.

Maybe he’ll get distracted with Sophie and Charlie—his beautiful new family. Then he can call and apologize for missing it, and I can say, Better luck next time.

Damn I hope that happens.

I shade with snow-white opaque, platinum and charcoal and finish off the edges.

I’m actually thankful to Quinn for walking in on me this morning—I could’ve fucked up my hands bad and would’ve had to cancel this session—and doing this is the best therapy I could give myself.

“I think you’re done, man. Why don’t you go take a look?” I tell him.

He slides off the chair and goes up close to the full mirrored wall. “Holy Fuck! It’s incredible!”

“Happy you like it.” I smile and begin cleaning my area.

“Man, it’s a fucking masterpiece.”

“Thanks.”

“Aren’t you afraid if you continue fighting in the MMA, you could hurt your hand so bad you wouldn’t be able to tat anymore?” he asks.

Wow! That statement hits too close to home.

“I don’t mean nothing by it—you’re a hell of a fighter—could become a world titleholder,” he continues. “But you’ve got an amazing talent right here.”

“Thanks.” It’s just another subject and another question I don’t have an answer for.

After he leaves and my station is all cleaned up, I walk out into the waiting room.

“He was a happy customer,” Adrienne chirps.

Adrienne has been working for me since I opened the place. She and her longtime girlfriend live in the apartment above the shop. They’re great people.

“Josh just called. He’s on his way,” she says.

“Great,” I mutter and then look around at what I’ve built: black walls with red trim and black and red checkered flooring with a Persian area rug welcoming clients to sit on the black leather sofas. My artwork hangs on the walls … they’re good, but these pieces aren’t parts of my soul. Those are colors I’ve only ever let one person see. After her, I pulled the dark shades down over those windows.

“Want to talk about it?” Ade shakes me from my daze.

“No thanks. I definitely do not want to talk about it.”

“Are you going to talk to her about it?”

When I look over at her, she has her arms folded across her chest defiantly. Her spaghetti strapped dress shows off her colorful, flowered arm sleeves.

“You’re going to get on my case too?” I accuse.

“Well, you know there are no secrets here.” When she tilts her head to challenge me, the light reflects off her silver chin post. “I think fate is giving you a lucky draw from the deck, and you need to play your cards right. You’ve been pining after her for as long as I’ve known you.”

“Ade—” I begin.

“I’m not finished speaking. This is do or die, Jack—where you find out if she still has a thing for you or not. Maybe then you can get on or move on.”

“Jesus Christ, I hate all of this free advice!” I sweep my fingers through my hair.

“Free advice just means you have a family that cares about you,” she quips.

At that moment, the buzzer rings, announcing someone has opened the door behind me.

Shit.

“Welcome to The House of Ink and Steel,” Josh announces.

“Hi there!” Adrienne coos with the biggest smile. “You must be Quinn. I’m so excited to meet you.”

“Thanks.” She sounds unsure and distrustful.

“This is Adrienne, she’s been working here for forever,” Josh says.

“Oh yeah! Since Liam opened the place.”

“It’s impressive, Liam.”

When Quinn says my name, I feel as if I could melt.

“Would you like the tour?” Josh asks her when I don’t answer fast enough.

“I’d love it,” Quinn says. “You know, I’ve watched you on Ink Master.”

She’s still talking to me.

“Really? You watch that show?” I finally turn to face her.

“Well, only when you’ve been a guest judge. Guess I’m partial to your work as an artist.” She bites her lip and her gaze drops to the floor.

It’s her shy look. Her I-want-to-hide look.

“Come on, I’ll show you the alcoves.” Josh takes her arm in his. “Talon and Ryder do quite a lot more work around here than he does.”

As he leads her through the place Adrienne comes close and whispers in my ear, “It’s going to be alright, Liam. The universe has a way of working things through when it’s the right time.”

“At least one of us believes that.”

“Don’t be so cynical,” she scolds. “You just got handed a second chance.”

Before I can shoot her a dirty look, Josh and Quinn come back through the lobby. “Let’s get some lunch,” Josh says. “I’m famished.”

I give Adrienne a kiss on her cheek. Even though she’s just frustrated the living hell out of me, I know she cares.

We step out into the parking lot.

“I like the family SUV look you’ve got going on here,” I razz Josh, who used to drive a sleek Gillette Vertigo around. He still has it, but now he also owns a souped-up (with all the safety features) Chevy Tahoe. It has a pink flowered car seat in the back, which I’m sitting next to, along with the toys I had to push over to make room for my ass. A purple sippy cup sits in the drink holder next to Josh.

“Wouldn’t have it any other way,” he admits with a shit-eating grin.

“I’d love to meet your family.” Quinn smiles over at him from the passenger seat.

“I can make that happen,” he tells her.

Soon, though, Josh drives the scenic route around Lake Calhoun.

“Look!” He indicates the colorful snow kites gliding over the frozen lake. Before anyone protests, he pulls into the recreation area’s parking lot.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve seen those,” Quinn says. “It looks like a kaleidoscope.”

“Good thing we’re all dressed warmly. Let’s get a closer look.” Josh turns off the engine. “I could use the fresh air too.”

This is turning into more than lunch. Before I lose my cool, I try to get back into the state of mind I had when I was tatting the guy’s arm.

“Sounds good,” Quinn says, and that solidifies it.

We all walk out to the lake’s edge. There’s so much going on here, even in the middle of February, and it reminds me why I love this city. Vendors are serving hot cocoa and warm, freshly baked pretzels; kids are running around in full snow gear, and of course, there are the snow kites. A snow kite looks a lot like a windsurfer, only it’s built to stand and sail on ice. The colors remind me of a hot air balloon festival, when hundreds take to the skies.

“There must be close to fifty of them,” I say.

“Have you ever tried it?” Quinn asks, and I realize she’s talking directly to me.

“No. I’d fall flat on my ass.” I smile.

“Yeah, and break it, then I’d be the one carrying you home.” Josh laughs.

“Asshole.” I shove him lightly. “You know, Connor’s into it. Has his own kite and everything. He’s good at it.”

Josh asks Quinn, “So, where are you living these days?”

“Georgia. I’ve been there the past few years.”

“Do you like it?” he prods.

“It’s hot and humid in the summertime, but the winters aren’t so bad.” She shrugs. “I sort of like the storms that blow through.”

She didn’t really answer his question.

“It’s really cool you two became such close friends.” She stares off dreamily at the kites.

“Yeah, I put up with him,” Josh quips and shoves my shoulder. “You two entertain each other for a second, I need to use the loo.”

I’m going to kill the fucker. I have no idea what to say! And obviously neither does she, as we both just stand there, painfully uncomfortable.

“Adrienne seems sweet,” Quinn finally says.

“Yeah, she’s cool.”

“How long have the two of you known each other?”

“Since I opened shop six years ago.” I watch a novice kiter fall on his ass. I know how you feel, buddy, I think.

“Six years is a long time,” she says.

“I guess.” I just shrug my shoulders. I’m now plotting the ways I’m going to kill Josh. “You never did finish telling Josh if you liked living in Georgia.”

“The people are really nice. I love the southern hospitality and big smiles. The people make you feel really welcome.” She continues, “I’ve made some great friends.”

“But?” I say, while I crane my neck towards the bathrooms.

“But …?”

“It’s an easy question, do you like living in Georgia?” It comes out more rough-edged than I intend it to.

“Yes, I do,” she snaps back at me.

Perfect, I’ve made her angry.

Trying to save this conversation, which is already a train wreck, I try, “I’d miss the winter too much, I think, to live down south.”

“I miss the winter, the smell in the air and the prickly feel of the cold on your face,” she says, then slowly states. “I’ve been thinking for a while now about … maybe … moving back up into this area.”

It’s a big city, but not big enough. “Would your boyfriend go for that?” FUCK! Way to be subtle. And I don’t even want her to answer that! “You know, Josh is taking a long fucking time. I’m going to walk by the bathroom and see what’s taking him so long.”

I walk away fast, hoping she’ll forget that I asked her anything. Now I’m getting pissed off because I’m acting like a fucking teenager!

“Wait, I’ll go with you,” she says, catching up.

Without paying her much mind, I throw open the door of the men’s bathroom and walk inside, calling Josh’s name. When I get no answer, I come back out.

“Did you see him?” I ask.

“No.” She looks at me like I’m nuts. “Maybe he had to go to the car to get something.”

We walk together out into the parking lot, until we’re standing in the empty space Josh’s SUV had been parked in.

“Okay … that’s weird. You know, I’ll just call him.” She fumbles through her coat pockets. “He may have gotten a call from … Sophie … my phone isn’t here. Oh, shit! I just remembered, Josh asked if he could borrow my cell phone when his battery died. He must not have given it back to me.”

“I’ve got mine.” I feel my jacket’s inner lining and find only a piece of paper.

Sorry, Liam. Josh made me do it. Adrienne

I close my eyes as the reality of what Josh just pulled off becomes completely clear.

“That asshole!” I look around the lot, hoping it isn’t what I think.

“What is it?”

“He drove us out here, left us on purpose, and stranded us further by confiscating our fucking phones!” I’m fuming.

How the fuck could he do that to me? What the fuck would make him think this was a good idea?

I hear a soft giggle beside me. I peer over to see Quinn trying to stifle her laughter behind her mitten-covered hand.

“It isn’t funny!” I state. “It’s a five mile hike back to my place.”

That doesn’t stop her. Her response grows from a giggle to an all-out laughing fit.

“He didn’t even fucking feed us!” I growl.

But her eyes still sparkle when she laughs, and it sounds so good and beautiful I can’t help but get sucked into it.

“You think it’s funny?” I reluctantly smile at her.

She nods with tears in her eyes.

I have to hand it to him, this is definitely one way to force us together.

My Review: 4.5/5 Stars

Burn just about broke my heart. The feels in this book were heartbreaking.

Liam and Quinn had a really rough childhood, but they stuck together through it all. Until one fateful night where Quinn’s world shattered.

It’s been ten long years and Quinn’s back in town and Liam doesn’t no what to do. On one hand he still loves her and on the other his heart is still broken because she left him.

You read about how the Brothers of Ink and Steel came to be in Dare, but you learn all the gory details in this book. You go back and forth between 2005 and 2015.

I absolutely loved Burn, though I could have did without a certain scene or two. There is nothing left to the imagination as you read the tale of true love and soul mates.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Genre: M/F, MC Romance

Synopsis:

Must read: The Diary of Bink Cummings Vol 1 & 2 previously.

Tests, life is full of them. The world is constantly putting you through them to see how much you can take before you break. Before you are no longer who you are. Before your world dissolves around you. How long you can stay strong and overcome the obstacles.

It’s no secret that Big and I butt heads. It’s no secret that I not only dislike my mother, I hate her because she hates me. But can these people break me? Can they push me to the edge of insanity, ready to jump?

Having stayed and moved in with Big, I was living the life I never even knew I wanted. Every day was filled with promise, warmth and unconditional love. Until the day, it wasn’t. Until the day it all changed and I quickly learned what I’m made of, thanks to the truths behind many years of painful secrets.

It only took a single day for my world to never be the same. One day to change me forever. One day for revelations. One day I’ll never forget.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

I don’t even know where to begin with this review. That’s saying a lot, so I will begin at the beginning.

Eva “Bink” Cummings is this bad ass biker chick. I mean she takes no shit from anybody, tells Big what she feels without a care that he is the President of the Sacred Sinners. She basically gives no fucks and I love it. She grew up in the life, but wasn’t a member of the club if that makes sense. She just turned thirty, she has no man and no kids, but she doesn’t let that stop her from doing her.

Her mother hates her and she hates her mother. I mean the stuff that went down with her mom was just damn. Her mother did her dirty in this book.

Her father and brothers are apart of the life and they love it as well. She also has another father figure, Gunz. I liked him, he took no shit, but at the same time he was putty in Bink’s hands.

Then we have Big. OMG, what is there to say about him, everything. This is the man you do not want to cross even on one of your good days. He has no problem cussing you out, whooping your ass, or pulling a gun out on you. It’s that real. Hell there is a scene that just confused the hell out of me because maybe I missed the explanation later on in the book, but this man rode home on his bike after taking care of some business and he was not himself. That’s saying a lot.

Bink’s is Big’s old lady though she doesn’t want to admit it. The third book basically ties up loose ends from the previous book. Questions are answered that I swear I kept saying ‘well when am I going to find out.” Bink’s bad bitch is on full force in this one.

There is hot sex, bad biker men, love and family.

My only problem with this book was Bink’s attitude and mouth and that she wouldn’t tell Big how she felt. I swear I wanted to jump in the book and shake some sense into her.

Another than that, this was an awesome read and I can’t wait to read Big. I hope it has his POV in it.

Blog Tour: Capture by Penny Reid

Heat (Elements of Chemistry #3)

Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

One week.

Manhattan apartment.

Super-hot ex-boyfriend.

What’s the worst that could happen?

It’s been nine months since Kaitlyn Parker has seen or heard from Martin Sandeke—nine months and five stages of matter. She’s lived through the worst of first-love heartbreak, and is most certainly stronger (and less likely to hide in science cabinets) than ever before.

But now Martin is back. And he wants to be friends. But he’s sending mixed signals to the Bunsen burner in Kaitlyn’s pants. Will Martin re-capture Kaitlyn’s heart? Can Kaitlyn and Martin ever be just friends? Or, despite an abundance of chemistry, are some bonds just too unstable to endure?

My Review: 4/5 Stars

Capture was a perfect ending to the series. Although I never thought they should have separated at the end of Heat.

After the split Kait has come into her own. She realized the path she was on wasn’t the one she wanted. She knows it has everything to do with her week spent with Martin. He opened her eyes to her true passion.

After sometime apart Martin comes back into her life. She’s hesitant at first, but soon caves to his wishes. She spends one week at his house and now she’s more confused than ever about where they stand.

Martin’s not done with her and he will do anything in his power to get her back.

I was upset with Kait. If she would have just read the interviews that Martin held, so much time would not passed. I was with Martin’s decision at the end of Heat, though I think their separation benefited both of them.

Kait because she followed her dreams and Martin because he needed to let go of the hate he had for his father. I don’t think they would have accomplished those things if they were still together.

I’m a little sad though because their journey is over.

I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Reid.

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

Genre: M/F, Erotic Romance

Synopsis:

Young investigative reporter, Cait Shaw, is not happy about her new assignment; investigating what she deems to be a “seedy” part of Chicago’s more questionable businesses. But her editor seems to have a personal vendetta against the elusive Mr. Justice, leaving Cait with little say in the matter.

Cait is especially shocked and conflicted by her attraction to the irresistible charms of Liam Justice. Liam is like no man she has ever known and she is totally captivated and unprepared for the sinfully erotic, passionate affair they enter into.

As her world is turned upside down, Cait must cope with her growing affection for Liam and his shadowed past.

Excerpt:

“There’s not going to be anything gentle about tonight, darlin’,” he rasps against my mouth. “I’ve waited all day for you, and watching you dance with those other men, letting them touch you, I’m going to punish you.” My body quivers at his words. “I’m going to fuck you so hard you won’t be able to walk tomorrow.”

Holy shit!

The sharp bite of arousal causes my stomach to clench in reaction as he grips my hand and pulls me through the apartment, not saying another word.

The bedroom door closes with a soft click behind us as Liam continues to grasp my hand as if he’s afraid I’ll run if he releases me. He looks down, nailing me with his intense blue gaze, and my breath catches.

“I have to call downstairs,” he murmurs.

“Okay,” I breathe.

His eyes are fervent as his gaze holds mine. He releases me, and I finally break eye contact, moving across the room to stand before the doors that open out onto a balcony.

“I’m upstairs.”

I turn to find him watching me as he talks on the house phone. I turn back to look out the darkened window. I feel awkward, not knowing what I should be doing. Undressing? I’m out of my depth here. I don’t have experience in this type of situation. Are men put off by a woman’s lack of sexual knowledge? The thought that it might, flames my self-doubt, and I look back uneasily at Liam as I hear him say, “I’ll talk to you in the morning.”

He sets the phone down on the bedside table. Then he crosses the room in long strides, pulling his shirt up and over his head, tossing it aside.

Holy hell!

My eyes greedily devour every inch of his hard, muscular perfection. The fierce hunger in his eyes, almost savage in its intensity, spikes my desire, creating a raw need that hits me like a physical blow.

When he reaches me, he pulls me roughly against the length of his body as he wraps me in his arms and his spicy male scent. His mouth comes down on mine, and his tongue is forceful as he pushes it into my mouth. His kiss consumes, possesses and sucks every ounce of doubt from my thoughts. Our passion is almost tangible, and I strain to get closer as he grips my bottom, squeezing firmly. I smooth my hands across his broad shoulders, down his arms, loving the feel of his hard muscles as I run my hands over his firm chest.

“Fuck, Cait,” he gasps against my lips. When he lifts me up into his arms, I press my mouth to his neck and suck against his skin. I nip and bite as he crosses the room to lower me beside the bed.

“Fucking clothes off. Now!” he snarls as he jerks the duvet and top sheet off the bed.

Our eyes lock as I hurry to pull my dress off as he slides his jeans and briefs down his legs, his erection springs free to stand tall and proud.

I still, my mouth going dry. He is so freaking beautiful, I can’t take my eyes from him.

When he grips his erection and pumps his hand along the length, I look up to meet his knowing blue gaze.

“Is this what you want, darlin’?” he asks with a lascivious smile.

I swallow with difficulty. “Yes,” I breathe.

He walks slowly, purposefully toward me.

“On your knees.”

Author Interview:

Why did you become a writer?

I have always had an amazing imagination and writing became an outlet for that.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go? Why

The location changes frequently. Right now, I would love to go to Greece or Italy. I’m not sure why exactly, but it probably has something to do with the way the lifestyle of the people who live in those countries is depicted. And the wine. I’ll be honest, the wine is a big draw. The incredible history connected to those countries is also alluring. It would be amazing to walk among ancient Roman ruins or the Greek Parthenon.

If the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow would you be ready?

Uh… no. I think if the zombie apocalypse happens, we’ll all be toast.

If you could meet anyone past or present, who would it be?

That is a good question, I’ve thought about that one before. I would love to meet family members I grew up hearing about but never met because they were gone long before I was born.

Where do you see yourself three years from now?

Still writing and enjoying every moment of it!

What is the one thing your readers don’t know about you, but you wished to share?

Now that’s a hard question. There are so many things I could share… Naughty or nice? Ok…um… I have never flown in a plane. I will never fly in a plane. I am terrified at the thought of flying in a plane.

How I think I’ll ever get to Greece or Italy, I really don’t know.

My Review: 4.5/5 Stars

I am going back to the idea that there is a conspiracy going on here because the ending of dang near all the books that I have been reading lately have had a flipping cliffhanger. Now in the back of my mind as I am reading Seeking Justice is that somebody is going to find out the truth and they aren’t going to like it and the person telling the lie is gonna get it.

Boy was I right, but hot damn the book just stopped right there. I honestly wanted to cry. Now to the review.

Caitlyn works at a magazine company and her boss wants her to go undercover working for Justice. She is nervous from the beginning because she finds out that Justice House is also a sex club. Kinky I know right, but it’s not all that her brain has conjured up for her.

Justice runs a tight ship, but his employees are loyal and like him. They have all mainly been with him since the beginning.

Seeking Justice was a master piece. It kept you engaged in the story and when Cait met Justice, holy smoking hell. You can feel the chemistry between them from the moment they meet. In the beginning Justice is an ass, but what’s a man to do when he wants something he knows he shouldn’t go after.

As the story goes on, you know the inevitable, as Justice would like to say, is going to happen and boy when it does. OMG they heat up the sheets. Although I kept asking myself when in the hell is he going to be tender and loving about it? To me it didn’t always have to be rough, you know a little TLC would have been great.

There wasn’t anything else about the book that I didn’t like except some sex scenes and the ending. Oh no that’s not true. I honestly wanted to know what was going through Justice’s mind through out the entire book, especially to know his naughty thoughts.

I hope to beans that there is another book in the works and if so and Mrs. Jacks you hear my pleas, please, please have it out really soon.
