SYNOPSIS

RYAN

After two years undercover, Detective Ryan Clark is tasked to the job he’s been waiting for. Ryan, together with undercover operative, Mick Gallagher, could very well be the men responsible for bringing together the biggest drug bust in Australia’s history.

The seemingly sleepy coastal town of Fremantle, has become a hotspot for a newly formed drug syndicate, which threatens to flood the market with high-grade coke through the ports.

Settling into his new locale, scouting out the local haunts, Ryan finds himself coming back to the same coffee shop. The attraction to Blondie, the local barista, has him puzzled. He knows it’s not just one-sided.

She’s trying to keep her distance.

It only makes him want her more.

WILLOW

Willow Asher left it all behind. Not by choice.

After two long years, she’s finally getting somewhere. Willow has a busy café a stone’s throw from the beach. It’s her pride and joy, and her buxom business partner, Gabby, is the closest thing to family to speak of.

Although Willow’s past still plagues her thoughts, she’s determined to one day have her happily ever after. Just not yet.

What she doesn’t need is the complications of Mr Sexy-Brown-Eyes, who seems to be drinking more and more coffee.

She doesn’t want the questions.

She’s still trying to get her story straight.

 

Enjoy the excerpt!

The curvy redhead behind the counter warmly greets everyone like their old friends, winking and smiling, her iridescent hot pink lipstick unmissable. Her silver nametag bears the name ‘Gabby’.

“Well, it’s a good morning now,” the redhead says, her hazel eyes sizing me up when I move to the front of the line. She smirks, and readies her hand on the register. “What’ll it be, honey?”

“Large flat white, thanks.”

“That’s four dollars, please.”

I pay, and she hands me my change, her hot pink fingernails grazing my outstretched palm. The redhead slides a piece of paper across the counter and a small hand from behind the machine takes it. Apart from the noise you wouldn’t even know someone was there with the cups piled high on top.

A flash of messy blonde hair dashes out from behind the machine. “Is that take,” she says, and her jaw goes slack as her pretty eyes scan from my chest up to my face.

“Huh?” I say, leaning in closer to the counter, taking in an eyeful of her petite body, golden tanned skin against the stark whiteness of her tank top. I don’t miss the growing blush that’s spreading across her freckled cheeks either.

She shakes her head and briefly closes her eyes as she huffs out a breath. “Sorry, take-away?”

“Nah, think I might stay?” I say and nod. Yep. Definitely staying.

“Um, sure. Take a seat,” she says and turns to her colleague. “Gabs, can you give him a number?”

“Oh, honey. I’ll give this one a number alright.”

I chuckle, and take the number on a metal stand that she hands me. Blondie gives me a tickle of a smile and then returns behind the machine.

I lazily wander to the only vacant chair in the corner, and wait impatiently for blondie to deliver my coffee.

I’ve got a fuckin’ good feeling I’m gonna enjoy this assignment.

My Review

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

I have been a massive fan of Miss Weis for close to a year now, and I love how she always manages to make me laugh and swoon with her romance novels. This author has a very down-to-earth way of telling her stories and she has a certain knack of creating strong, believable characters who you wish you could sit down to have dinner with sometimes. So yes, I always recommend her books to lovers of romance, and “That Night With You” is just as enjoyable as the other novels written by Miss Weis.

I will not go into that many details about the actual storyline of this novel, because the synopsis tells you a lot already, and I will do my best to not give you any spoilers, either.

Have you ever had a romantic or sexual encounter that you think back on years later from time to time? Do you sometimes wish that things had turned out differently? I believe that we all have regrets in life, and Madison Barnett is no different: when she was a 19-year-old student, she made a very un-romantic decision: having a one-night-stand in order to get rid of her virginity. I know, it is a bit shocking, BUT so very realistic – at least to me. On this fateful night, she meets a man, Harry, and, unbeknownst to him, he manages to make such an impression on Madison that no man since Harry manages to make her fall in love.

When Madison is hired to work at a very prestigious architect firm Parr & Associates, she is shocked to find that her boss, Hayden Parr, reminds her so much about her one-night-stand, Harry. What is Madison to do now? Wait and see if Hayden brings up the past himself? Or confront him and risk making a complete fool of herself?

Well, if you want the answers to these questions, you will have to read the book. *wink*

I might as well confess right away that I am harboring a massive girl crush on Madison! Yes, there is such a thing as a girl crush, dear readers. Madison is sweet, ambitious, strong-willed, yet also rather shy when it comes to the opposite sex. In the beginning, she has some self-esteem issues, but I really like how she, through her encounters with Hayden, grows into becoming a very mature, feisty woman who goes after the things she wants. There were times, while reading her story, when I felt completely crushed on her behalf, and I just wanted to give her a hug – so yes, I like Madison very well indeed.

As for Hayden: he is the perfect match to Madison in many ways. He has been hurt in the past, thus preventing him from putting his trust in other people, and I really like his honesty and him being upfront about his intentions with Madison. He is quick-witted, a clever businessman, but, more importantly, the fact that he searched high and low for Madison after their one-night-stand so many years ago completely melted my heart. It speaks of a very strong character. This does not, however, mean that I did not find him to be a bit of an idiot sometimes – because I did – and I was actually very unsure about how this book would end until I read the epilogue. So I applaud the author for keeping me in the dark until the very last page.

But I can already hear your question: Why not give the book 5 stars, then? Well…In all honesty, my reasoning for this is Hayden: although he possesses many positive character traits, he confuses me a lot. What I mean to say is that he can be hot one minute, then cold, and he acts like a boyfriend even when he makes it quite clear to Madison that he is not after a real relationship. I never felt completely satisfied with his reasoning, I suppose, because the things he said did not always match his actions. Call me crazy, but I have to be honest here: A man who changes his mind a lot about what he wants can be a bit of a turn-off for me. Nevertheless, I do think that Hayden redeems himself in the end, and this book is definitely one of my favorites of 2014.

As always, I am in love with the storytelling skills that Miss Weis possesses: you will find that there is plenty of wit, laughter, romance, as well as a cast of quirky, funny secondary characters in her books. But Miss Weis is trying something a little bit different this time, and that concerns the sex scenes: because they…are…hot! I mean, hot-as-sin hot! Most definitely guaranteed to make your panties combust! So keep the fan ready, my friends: you are going to need it.

There are always some serious issues being dealt with in this author’s books, and it is the same with “That Night With You”. To me, the love story of Madison & Hayden is about trust – trust in other people, but most definitely also about trusting in yourself; you can overcome past issues if you let go, overcome your fears, and, lastly, allow your heart to feel again. Nothing is more important in life than love.

“Strike” (Spark Series #3) by Jennifer Ryder – My Review

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000031_00006]

Title: “Strike” (Spark, #3)

SYNOPSIS 

Fast. That’s how I like life, especially my two great joys: bikes and women. I’m committed to exclusively riding one, but not the other.

Until April.

A sexy-arse freelance photographer who’s travelled the world, and doesn’t do long walks on the beach or romantic candlelit dinners. She enjoys running with the bulls and food spicy enough to make your hair fall out. If that weren’t enough to get me hard, she rides a mean mother of a motorcycle.

I’ve gotta have a taste of this wildcat.

~Spencer (Jones)

I don’t do fast. Not anymore. I’ve got my career, my independence, and since I fled Spain to come back home I promised myself that I wouldn’t be put second—or third, for that matter—again.

Then I meet pretty boy Spencer.

He’s smooth, oozing the most potent pheromones probably known to modern science, and he’s making a move on me. One kiss was almost enough for my promise to dissolve.

My head says no—my treacherous body screams yes. I’m gonna make Spencer work for it. Make him fight for the chance to have me, because I know that deep down I’m worth it.

~April MacIntyre

 

*The book can be read as a stand-alone, but it is best to read after the first two in the series, as the main characters in Spark and Spike continue to appear in each book in the series.*

My Review

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

 

If you, like me, are a reader who loves being surprised by characters, I do believe that you will love “Strike”. I had no idea, going into this book, that I would fall so hard and fast for Spencer Jones, but Miss Ryder had me so intrigued by this MX rider from the very beginning. He is so different from who I initially thought him to be.

We all know what it is like to only do what other people expect us to do – and how many of us long to break free of them. As in Spencer’s case, I do not think that it matters how old you are before you find the courage to spread your wings and try to fulfill your dreams. And I think it really comes across in this author’s writing.

April and Spencer’s first meeting is different, interesting, fun, and sexy. I loved it! At first, I felt that April seems to be so carefree and all about having fun, but then I stopped my reading and started to reflect on it…And the more I thought about it, the more determined I became to get beneath the surface of this feisty photographer. No woman, I believe, is that free of a spirit, not in the real world, I mean. There has to be a story behind it, and I immediately wanted to uncover it.

April wanting to keep her relationship to Spencer a secret had me worried quite a bit. You see, I can definitely understand her reasons, but I immediately thought that a happy outcome would not really be realistic. Because these kinds of secrets usually have a way of making themselves known – and always at the worst possible time! Still, I kept hoping for the best and simply enjoyed how these two characters got to know each other better.

As April & Spencer’s relationship progresses, I was absolutely convinced that they belong to each other. I really love how April just takes charge and goes after the things she wants. She is feisty, sexy, smart, and funny. Oh, and adorable, too. The fact that she is all those things makes her perfect for Spencer: she shows him what life should be all about, and her supporting him in every way makes him realize that he truly has the strength to go after his dreams. And, in my opinion, he needs a firecracker like April as his woman.

As for Spencer: well, he…is…HAWT! Oh, my goodness! Phew! Like I stated above, I did not believe that I would become so in love with him…But I love his sensitive side…his humour…his dirty thoughts…Oh, and his man-whore past? It is quite easy to understand why he acted that way….He is not perfect, of course, and I actually think that he should insist upon coming clean to Mac in more firm way, but I can understand his reasons for not doing it. The fact that he lets April set the pace of their relationship even though he is saddened by not being upfront about everything, makes him perfect BBF material in my eyes. It is just a joy getting to know him and realizing what a sweet, genuine guy he has become since “Spike”. I love being surprised by characters, and Miss Ryder has certainly fulfilled that wish.

The fact that April is making Spencer work really hard to earn her affections? Well, first: poor guy! Second: it gives you some great insight into April’s character, and as we learn about her past heartaches, it actually makes sense! Moreover, it teaches Spencer that there is more to a relationship than the sex – at least, there should be – and even though it may seem old-fashioned to some, I really like it. It also builds a lot of anticipation and tension – and, wow, this author really had me squirming in my seat! You can most definitely feel how much Spencer yearns and aches to make April his.

Overall, I really enjoyed this installment in the Spark series. April and Spencer complement each other perfectly. Whereas April is always about taking chances, even risks, Spencer knows when it is time to slow down a bit when necessary – at least, that is how I feel – so there is a great balance in their relationship. There is not a single scene in this book that seems off or over-the-top. The conversations between all the characters are genuine and lifelike – not unrealistic, annoying or stilted – and the pace of the story is smooth – not too fast, not too slow.

Both April and Spencer learn that in order to move forward, it is necessary to let go of the past. And what their love story tells me is this: You have to reach for their dreams, no matter what other people want for you, and even though you will face countless troubles, they are easier to overcome when you are not alone.

My final note before finishing this review will be about the writing. In my opinion, Miss Ryder has a gift: she creates such realistic, honest, and genuine characters. Furthermore, this author incorporates wit into even some pretty heavy situations, and I love how she can make steamy and sexy scenes fun. Her words make me sigh, laugh, cry, and swoon. When I read her books, I never want to get to the last page…and when I do reach “The End”, I immediately want to read them again.

There you have it: my honest opinion on why I believe this book deserves five stars. I hope you enjoy Spencer & April’s wild love story. And be prepared to have your panties combust once or twice…*wink*

GreetingsFromSugartownCover

Title: “Greetings From Sugartown” (Sugartown #2.5)

Author: Carmen Jenner

Genre: New Adult Contemporary/Erotic Romance

Release Date: 9th September, 2014

SYNOPSIS

Life in Sugartown hasn’t always been easy, not for an ex-con like Elijah, and certainly not for Ana, who grew up desperate for a way out.

Meeting Elijah changed all that; Elijah changed a lot of things.

You’d think that after three years together and the worst behind them that life would be a walk in the park, but Sugartown’s sexiest couple may be about to face their biggest obstacles yet.

Between failed marriage proposals, a trampy ex-lover and a tempting new biker, Sugartown is suddenly not so sweet.
They’re head-over-heels in love. It should be simple—but it rarely is.

Will they make it down the aisle to the happy ever after they deserve? Or are some relationships just destined to fail?

My Review

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

If there is one Australian author who understands how to make me laugh, cry, shout, and swoon, it is Miss Jenner. I have loved her Sugartown series from the very beginning, and I am more than thrilled to say that being back with Elijah Cade & Ana Belle in this latest installment has been absolutely fantastic!

This couple has had it difficult from the beginning, to say the least, and even though they love each other more than anything, their pasts are still lurking in the background, waiting to rear their ugly heads again. And the question is if they can find a way to move forward, once and for all, instead of always waiting for a bomb to explode.

Elijah, who holds a very special place in my heart, is, however, ready to take their relationship to the next level – and no, I will not reveal what that is, sorry – but he feels rather insecure about how Ana will react. He continues to doubt her wanting to stay with him, and he is filled with a lot of insecurities about himself as well.

Ana, on the other hand, has definitely become stronger in many ways since her attack a few years back, but Elijah’s cagey and rather suspicious behavior makes her doubt if she will ever really be enough for him! And so the roller coaster starts again…

Now, I cannot write this review without mentioning how much I really like how Miss Jenner shows us a more mature side to her writing skills this time. Please do not misunderstand me: there are still plenty of great laughs in this book, and some really embarrassing, yet endearing, moments, too, and I would definitely not be without them, but it honestly seems to me that there is a more serious tone of voice to this book than we have seen before from Miss Jenner.

Both Elijah and Ana have grown up a lot since we last saw them, and I really enjoyed seeing how they have evolved in many ways. Furthermore, due to the hardships they have to endure this time, they finally realize the ways to be strong for one another – whenever it is necessary, of course. Meaning: they are still pretty nutty, and so adorable that you will never get enough of them, but they come to understand the truly important matters in life. That is how I feel, at least.

I think I have mentioned this before, but one of the best ways to explain if I have truly loved a book is if I keep thinking about it days after I have finished reading it. I miss Elijah and Ana so much right now, but I still feel that their turbulent love story has come to a perfect end. But why am I not giving the book five stars? Well, to tell the truth, I wanted to see a bit more suspense, or angst, as Ana and Elijah are confronted with the fact that her attacker is back in town. In short: I would have liked seeing a few more scenes when Ana is forced to confront her issues some more. It is so difficult writing this review without giving you any spoilers, and I am sorry if you feel confused about my reasoning. Read the book, and then make up your mind – reading is, after all, subjective!

“Greetings From Sugartown” has become a favourite book of 2014 for me, and like I stated above: there are lots of laughs, drama, and angst as is the case with the previous books in the series. Oh, and some very steamy and hot sexual encounters – phew! They will definitely make you tingle in all the right places. Need I say more? No, I think not. *wink*

If you have been a fan of the Sugartown Series from the beginning, just like me, I am absolutely positive that you will love being back with the whole crazy gang again! I loved practically everything about this book – especially some of the funnier moments when Holly and Jackson make an appearance – and I loved seeing Elijah and Ana finding faith and trust in each other. They are, plain and simple, perfect for another – but they are not perfect themselves. However, that is what makes them seem so real: it is so easy to relate to them because life is messy out in the real world, but there is always hope that things will fall into place. And that is a comforting thought…

Miss Jenner, you have done it again! I loved being back in Sugartown, and even though I am sad to leave – for now, at least – I am uplifted by the thought that I can always come back: because I know that I will read your books many times in the years to come. ❤

My Review

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

As you all know, I have been a major fan of Miss Winters from the beginning, and I will read anything this amazingly talented author writes. I was, however, a bit worried this time, because I did not think that the plot – a 600-year-old debt a prestigious family has to pay another family – would work in this modern society that we live in. But my doubts became nonexistent as soon as I had read the first page: this author knows exactly how to tease, tempt, and tantalize her readers with her powerful words. Yes, her stories are unconventional, to say the least, but that is part of the reason why I love them so much.

Nila Weaver is the young, successful, and sheltered woman who on the night of a major breakthrough as a professional designer is introduced to Jethro Hawk. Unbeknownst to her, his family holds incredibly power over hers and she finds herself gravitating towards him despite his peculiar behavior.

 “I often felt like a kitten brought up by two tigers. Never permitted my own claws to form or teeth to sharpen.” (Nila) 

Because of her overprotective father and brother, she is rather naive, but that is only in the beginning of the story. She soon learns that she has to become stronger, more resilient, if she is to continue to live, and survive, under the ever watchful eyes of the hawk.

I really love how Nila evolves from a shy, insecure woman to a feisty, strong minded cat with claws. She is forced to make the best of the situations she finds herself in, and I admire her strength and tenacity. But my heart also bled for her from time to time…To find out that your life is forfeited before it has ever really begun must be devastating, and I really hope that Nila’s fate will change as the story progresses in the (hopefully) near future.

“My life was never mine. My destiny was already written. My story began the night he came for me.” (Nila)

As for Jethro Hawk…To say that I found him to be very mysterious and intimidating would be an understatement! He is a bit of a conundrum, actually, and even though I cannot say that I will ever envision Jethro as a hero – trust me, this man is far from one! – I admit that I, so far, feel very intrigued by him.

“Men like me morphed into predators in sheep’s clothing. We preyed on the weak with no apology, and everything landed in our fucking laps.” (Jethro)

As the story progressed, I caught myself becoming more and more interested in the man hiding his true nature from the public eye behind the facade of his lineage, and the debt that follows every firstborn son that is born is such an interesting and different plot. I honestly cannot wait to uncover all that is Jethro Hawk in the future.

“You live in a fairytale, princess, and I’m about to destroy it.” (Jethro)

With all books written by Miss Winters so far, you will have to prepare yourself to be slightly disturbed by some of the things she forces her characters to go through. I always sit back and wonder how she comes up with her stories, and I must confess that the twists and turns of this first installment in the Inherited Series has left me quite speechless.

Both Nila and Jethro are bound by a kind of curse, in my opinion, and even though they should not be feeling other than like a prey and hunter, forced to be on opposite sides, they cannot deny the strange, but very alluring, sexual attraction that burns brightly every once in a while when they are together. And how is that even possible? I have no answer for you…and that is why I am so fascinated with this book!

You may ask why I feel compelled to give this book 5 stars, and the answer is really quite simple: it is because of the author’s writing abilities! I keep telling you how enthralling and captivating her books are, and how her words know how to weave a magical tale shrouded in heartbreak, devastation, and mystery – and even light banter and joy. Her female characters are vulnerable, but are forced to find an inner strength they do not even know they possess until fate makes them go through some horrific events, and even though this particular male character has yet to show any redeeming, and humane, traits, I am more than positive that Miss Winters has a plan, and that she will, eventually, let us see some different sides to Jethro that we do not expect him to own.

Who knows what will happen? Not me, that is for certain. I am actually not a great fan of serials, for various reasons, but I must confess that this one already has me hooked, and I cannot wait for the next book. I will try to be patient, however difficult it might be for me, and I heartily recommend this book to all the fans of dark romance novels out there. I am absolutely certain that you will become equally invested in the fate of Nila and Jethro just like I have become.

Excerpt: Debt Inheritance: Meet Jethro & Nila

 

ONE – Nina’s POV

Huge disappointment, Ms. Weaver.” His cold glare sent a snowstorm wiping away the bonfire in my belly. “I’m done playing games, so cut the bullshit. Time to begin the day.” His voice gave no room for interpretation. A cold draft shot down my back.

My brief reprieve from debts and horrible Hawks was over. I’d been shown something I desperately wanted, but denied it because I failed to please him.

“You could teach me…show me how…” I couldn’t make eye contact with him. Mortification painted my cheeks for both admitting I was clueless and asking a monster to coach me.

Jethro laughed. “You think that will save you from what’s coming? Was that your little plan? To make me fuck you in the hopes I might feel something for you?”

TWO – Jethro’s POV

 

I stood up slowly, clicking my tongue. “Ah, ah, ah, Ms. Weaver. Don’t take that tone with me. You’re the failure. You’re the prisoner. You take what I give you. You do not assume to have any say or authority. That includes listening to everything I deem important to tell you.” Ghosting to a stop in front of her, I murmured, “Is that quite understood?”

I flexed my muscles, welcoming back the soothing chillness of control. I hadn’t liked stepping outside my confines of civility. Things got messy when silence was disrupted. Things got rushed when tempers rose and curses flowed.

And I didn’t want to rush her undoing. I wanted to savour it. Devour it.
