It’s ok.” His breath tickled the hair on my forehead as he whispered – so close. “It’s going to be ok. We’ll figure this out.”

I tipped my head back to look him in the eyes, the hood of my coat falling off. “Will we?”
“We have to.” He said it with such conviction, I had no choice but to believe him, but I suddenly seemed to have forgotten how to speak. I couldn’t force my mouth to form words. All I could do was stare into his eyes as his arms warmed me and his smell reminded me of long summer days on the beach – fresh and warm and happy. His eyes made me feel like I was both drowning and saved at the same time.
I wondered what his lips would taste like. Would they be cold from the biting night air? Or would they be as warm as his embrace?
As if he was reading my mind, his gaze dropped to my lips and he swallowed, his Adam’s apple bobbing. I gasped. No fucking way.
I was done lying to myself and pretending I wasn’t hot for teacher. This insane situation was definitely becoming more complicated because of my new inconvenient feelings. I never in a million years expected that teacher might be hot for me too.
My thoughts 💭
I enjoyed this book! Harlow and Easton find themselves in a crazy situation that they know they need to get out of. They end up working together to find a solution and getting to know each other along the way. They had amazing chemistry and they’re my favorite of the series! I definitely recommend this for a some good chemistry, a little mystery & blackmail and a touch of student/teacher.

People say I ruined his life. Except, he’s the one who irrevocably broke me—my heart, my body, my soul…my will to live.

“Waiting for your next victim?” a cool, dark voice asks from my left.

“What do you want?” I ask without turning around. His voice alone sends shivers down my spine. God only knows what seeing his smug smile and sharp jaw would do to me right now.
Stupidly, I let my guard down tonight. Every single fiber of my being is telling me to run, but I refuse—partly because the thought of making a scene in front of all of these people has my skin feeling tight and itchy, and also because I refuse to give him the satisfaction of seeing me run away… again.
Sterling leans in, his breath tickling my neck and his body warming mine. “I’m just saying. Dressed the way you are, you must be looking for a good time. And I can’t help but wonder…” He trails off, skimming his nose down the column of my throat before scraping his teeth against the sensitive flesh where my neck and shoulder meet.
“Stop it!” I pray for my voice to come out firm and commanding, but seeing as God abandoned me long ago, I sound raw and needy. Which is a lie. I am a lot of things in regard to Sterling Abbot—angry, frustrated, hurt—but definitely not needy.
I try to shoulder-check him, but he bands an arm around my waist and pulls me in closer, bringing my back flush with his front. The feel of our bodies pressed together has my heart slamming against my ribs as arousal and disgust battle for dominance inside of me.
Judging from my roiling gut and damp panties, it’s a tie.
“I don’t really think you mean that, little mouse.”
My thoughts 💭
I liked this book. It does touch on some sensitive subjects so beware. Emmy thinks she’s getting a fresh start but someone wants to make sure that doesn’t happen and that she pays for her sins. Sterling was so frustrating but he got better as the story went on. I liked Emmy, I thought she was a little naive but super sweet. The supporting characters were amazing and gave Emmy the type of surroundings she needed. I recommend this book.

Blog Tour/ARC Review: The Virgin Hunt Games by Mel Teshco


by Mel Teshco
Publication Date: January 18, 2021
Tropes: Forbidden Love, Off Limits, Overcoming Odds
Genres: Adult, Entangled: One Handed Reads, Erotic, Paranormal, Sci-fi, Aliens, Romance

Melody Simmons desperately needs to fill her bank accounts with credits that could help her family climb out of near poverty. And in the Virgin Hunt Games, that means enticing as many hunters as possible to bed her. The downside? Billions of viewers from all parts of the galaxy would be watching her fall from virtue with avid interest.

Alien Damon Banscott despises everything about the Virgin Hunt Games. Except the fact he can now legally destroy his enemy in the games. He is in this only for revenge. Then Damon sees one of the beautiful hunted and, for a moment, his heart stops beating. He’ll fight to the death before allowing another hunter to touch and deflower Melody.

But while the hunters get more credits by pleasing their captive mate sexually, the hunted women received more by finding their pleasure with any of the hunters who weren’t their assigned mate.

Let the games begin…

My thoughts 💭


I liked this book. It had an erotic hunger games vibe but with aliens! Melody and Damon had plans before entering the games but their attraction pushes them slightly off course but it’s worth it. I definitely recommend reading this.


Mel Teshco loves to write scorching paranormal, sci-fi and contemporary stories. Not easy with five cats, two dogs and a fat black thoroughbred vying for attention, especially when Mel’s also busily stuffing around on Facebook. With only one daughter now living at home to feed two minute noodles, she still shakes her head at how she managed to write with three daughters and three stepchildren living under the same roof. Not to mention Mr. Semi-Patient (the one and same husband hoping for early retirement…he’s been waiting a few years now…) Clearly anything is possible, even in the real world.

Release Blitz/ARC Review: His By Fiona Murphy

Title: His: Dominic
Series: Sabatini Family #1
Author: Fiona Murphy
Genre: Contemporary Mafia Romance

Release Date: January 1, 2021
Any minute I’m going to wake up from this nightmare. Being tied up and thrown in the trunk of a car doesn’t happen in real life. Except the silk tie around my wrists feels very real. And my father, Johnny Conti, the head of the Outfit, is telling me to be a good girl—that I’m to be the wife of the man who tied me up and has me over his wide shoulder. 

Some women might swoon over gorgeous Dominic Sabatini with his blue eyes, dimples, and muscled body in a silk suit. Not me. Those are just distractions from who, what he really is: a ruthless killer with blood on his hands and ice in his veins.
There is no way Dominic could actually want to marry me. A virgin, curvy, buried in an all-girls Catholic boarding school for most of my life and seventeen years younger than him. He’s marrying so far beneath him it’s absurd.
No to all of it. Tomorrow I’m going to marry the man of my dreams, a nice, kind accountant. I’m going to have the safe, boring life I’ve always longed for. I have to escape this nightmare. But Dominic growls I belong to him and he keeps what is his.
This a mafia romance with dark elements. 
While this is the first book in a series it is a standalone and does not end in a cliffhanger. 

My thoughts 💭


This was an enjoyable read. Regina thought her life was going to go one way but her father has other plans. Dominic doesn’t like being told what to do but once something or someone is his he keeps it no matter what.This book was steamy with a little drama and I definitely recommend!
It hits me. I’m not getting out of this. I won’t be able to get away from Dominic Sabatini. Not today, a month, or even a year from now. If somehow, some way I got away, he’d find me. I have no idea why instead of scaring me, the realization thrills me. 

No, no. Fear shakes me out of my reverie. I can’t just give up. There has to be a way. There is always a way, isn’t there? 
I startle at the knock on the bathroom door. 
“Regina, get moving. I’m starving. I want to grab something to eat then get back on the road.” 
Looking down at the dress, anger at Dominic and myself fuels me. Today was supposed to be my wedding day, this is my wedding dress. I refuse to make this easy, for either of us. 
Hands shaking, I put on the pretty white lace bra and plain cotton white briefs. Forcing my fear down, I slip into the white dress. 
When I open the door, Dominic is standing by the door leading out of the room, carrying his leather duffle. His eyes go cold. “Change.” 
“No.” I’m defiant, refusing to back down from the dark energy vibrating around him. 
He drops the duffle and crosses the room in all of three steps. A hand goes around my throat and my stupid body betrays me, going instantly limp against him. “Take it off or I will.” 
I shake my head as much as I can. I blink and holy fucking crap, his other hand finds the neckline and tears it from my body. We’re both breathing hard and fast. The hand around my neck lets me go and fucking shit, I stumble into him. His hands wrap around my arms as he catches me close, his mouth at my ear. Hot air is sliding down the skin of my neck and I can’t fucking breathe. 
“You are mine. You belong to me. I can make you tremble in ecstasy or fear. The decision is yours.”
Due to commitment issues I have lived in many different cities and my favorite is Chicago but I have managed to settle into Austin and perhaps my commitment issues are behind me. 

I have enjoyed reading from a very young age and it wasn’t long before the children books bored me and I read the books my mother enjoyed Stephen King and Dean Koontz and I didn’t sleep without the light on until I was about ten. 
I came across my first Harlequin by accident and it was love at first read, no one died and happy endings? It was a whole new world and I loved it. 
I wrote my first story at eight and everyone died, of course. Since then I would like to think I’ve gotten better and now I’m writing the happily ever afters I first fell in love with, with some hot sex thrown in along the way. 
As a plus size woman myself, I have started writing the stories I always wanted to see myself in but never did. And now I’m ecstatic to give BBWs the happily ever afters with hot Alphas I want to read.

Some risks are more dangerous than others…

Judd “Judge” Scott lives a simple life running a successful business with his cousin, Deacon. As a bail bondsman and bounty hunter, he’s good at what he does.

He never expected Trip to come home and resurrect the Blood Fury MC, reopening old wounds. Being asked by the new prez to fill his late father’s boots as the Sergeant at Arms should be a hard no for Judge. Not only are they some pretty big boots to fill, but he also has too much to lose if things go sideways. Besides it risking his bail bonds business, he’s worried history will repeat itself and Judge wants to avoid ending up in prison, or dead, exactly like his father did. Even so, he reluctantly takes the spot as the club’s enforcer and wears his old man’s colors on his back.

Despite having no interest in a woman complicating his life, he’s intrigued by the young mother who shows up in town with her little girl. However, once Judge learns why she’s come to Manning Grove, he finds he has no choice but to get involved. And that could create more complications than they’re worth.

Note: Blood & Bones: Judge is the third book in the Blood Fury MC series. As always, this book has no cheating, no cliffhanger and has an HEA. It’s recommended to read this series in order.

My thoughts 💭

I would like to say that I would also be calling Jeb Daddy! 🤣 I enjoyed reading this book! Goldie (Gina), Nico, Mitch and Jeb are perfect for each other.

Review: Lilith’s Pride by Everly Taylor

Length: August 21, 2020

Published: 147 pages

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited


Lilith. My name brings fear and images of a dark seductress out to claim the souls of men. In reality, I’m a woman scorned by her husband for being too sexual. Okay, yes I went on a murdering rampage after being tossed to the side by him, but a woman can hurt can’t she?

Well Adam can take his vanilla ass somewhere else. I know what I like and I have been enjoying it for millennia while he died with his balls still blue and unsatisfied.

Now my endeavors are put in jeopardy as the council calls me before them to question a series of deaths they believe I’m responsible for. Just because I like to fuck, doesn’t mean I like to kill. Anymore. For Hell’s sake, I haven’t consumed a soul after sex in eons.

I’m left with two choices, give in and be sent back to Hell, or find out who is responsible for this darkness they accuse me of?

Oh, what is the Queen of Seduction to do?

My thoughts 💭

This was an interesting read. I liked it but I would’ve liked to have a little more backstory on Lilith’s past. Besides that I thought the book was hot and the characters had amazing chemistry. That cliffhanger has me ready to read the next book!

Release Blitz/ARC Review: Love In The Wild by Emma Castle

Title: Love in the Wild
A Tarzan Retelling
Author: Emma Castle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 28, 2020
A Sensual, Powerful, And Thought Provoking Tarzan Retelling 

Eden Matthews stumbled upon the discovery of a lifetime while photographing wildlife in the deep in the heart of Africa… 
A gorgeous god of a man living in the wilds of the African jungle among a family of gorillas… 
When he saves her life she’s compelled to uncover the man’s tragic past and the fate which led him to grow up in the wild. 
But Eden soon learns she can take man from the wild, but she can’t take the wild out of the man… 
When her savage savior soon shows her just want he wants of her…her sensual surrender, she finds she can’t resist him teaching her how to love…in the wild.
Screams. Gunshots. A mighty roar. Deafening silence. 

Eden jerked awake as the nightmares broke through her sleep. She gasped when she found herself unable to move. Was this another nightmare? She glanced wildly around the room, trying to make sense of where she was, and found herself staring into the brightest blue eyes she had ever seen. The mud-streaked face from her nightmares was real. 
She gasped again and tried to pull away. He held tight a moment before loosening his grip, clear disappointment in his eyes. 
Eden scrambled back, and something behind her tumbled across the floor. He sat up and moved around her to collect whatever it was she had disrupted. In the gray light of early morning, she saw him put pieces of skinned mango on a leaf that was bigger than his two hands cupped together. 
He grunted, chuffed, and even whistled at her as he held out the mangoes. Eden stared at the food, her stomach grumbling on cue at the sight of the fruit. His mouth curved into a smile, and he nodded to her in encouragement. She reached across the space between them and took a mango, trying not to stare at him. Much of the thick mud from earlier had fallen away to expose his body to her view, but his face was still darkened with it, making it hard to fully see his features aside from those wildly blue eyes. 
The trauma of yesterday was still in the back of her mind, but she could now focus on her mysterious savior, this wild and strange forest god. And a god he was. There was a mighty strength to his limbs, and he had a noble bearing that held her fascinated—and more than a little frightened. She was helpless against this man. If he desired it, he could take whatever he wished from her. Yet he gazed upon her with gentle eyes and offered her mangoes. 
She took another piece of fruit and was floored by the devastating effect his responding smile had on her stomach, which suddenly filled with butterflies. 
“Thank you,” she said, only she felt silly doing so, since it was obvious he didn’t understand her. She bit into the fruit and sighed at the sweet taste. He watched her eat two more pieces before he finally ate one himself. Then he reached for something on the floor and held it out to her. 
Midday sunlight caught on the bright gold of a long necklace. It was an ancient-looking necklace with a huge diamond pendant hanging from the center. 
“Oh my God . . .” 
She was almost afraid to touch it, but he pushed it into her hands before she could refuse him. He curled her fingers around the necklace and patted her closed hands with a tenderness that left her feeling breathless. 
“Thank you. It’s beautiful.” She stared at the necklace, and he watched her expectantly. Eden did the only thing she could think of and put the necklace on. He grunted and smiled, as if satisfied with her reaction, and then he opened the trapdoor in the center of the room. He turned, exposing his back to her, and pointed at himself. 
It looked like she was going for another ride. She climbed onto his back, more aware than ever of the heat of his body between her thighs, but the dried mud that coated his body was staining her clothes, and she prayed she could find her way to a river or stream or even a pond to get washed up. 
He began the descent, and when their feet touched the ground, he let her off his back. The wild man held out a hand to her, and she took it. It was strange to feel connected to this nameless mystery man, but Eden was beginning to trust him as he led her through the jungle. Besides, what choice did she have? 
After about half an hour, at least by Eden’s guess, she heard the roar of a waterfall and her heart leapt. She might be able to clean herself off and get something to drink. She glanced back down at herself and cringed at the mud and blood staining her clothes. 
The wild man took her straight to a large pool at the base of the waterfall, which poured over a mountainous area nearly two stories tall. The sight was breathtaking. The waterfall was as clear as glass, cascading into a frothy whiteness that settled into gentle ripples across a wide pool that was clear as the sky above. 
“Is it safe?” she asked as the man took her to the edge of the water. “I know you can’t understand me, but—” 
He turned to face her, his gaze solemn and his lips parted as he whispered one word. “Safe.” 
It was almost a hoarse grunt, as though he hadn’t spoken in ages, perhaps ever. Yet she recognized that word, and her world spun as she realized that she might have a chance to communicate with this man. 
“You know English?” 
He nodded uncertainly. 
“How much can you speak?” 
He held up his hands and shrank them together in the air. 
“Okay, how much can you understand?” 
His hands widened apart. 
A flood of questions filled Eden’s mind, but right now she had to focus on more pressing needs. The kind that pressed against her bladder. 
“I need to use the . . . Wait, you probably don’t understand what a restroom is. I need . . . privacy?” As embarrassing as it was, she squatted down, miming her intentions. 
He nodded toward a clump of trees. 
“Stay close,” he said in a hoarse whisper. 
Eden went over to the bushes and did what needed to be done before she rejoined him at the water’s edge. 
“Is it deep? I can swim. I’m just worried.” 
“Deep, yes. Safe.” He removed the gold leaf crown from his head and set it down in the grass. Then, without warning, he untied the strips of leather that held his loincloth on and dove into the pool. 
Eden had a brief but glorious glimpse of his muscled ass as he disappeared into the water. A cloud of mud circled around where he had vanished, sullying the pretty blue water. Eden waited for him to come up, wondering what he looked like beneath the layers of mud. But long seconds passed and he didn’t come up. 
Had something happened to him down there? She took off her hiking boots and socks before hastily wading into the water and diving under to search. 
Her heart thundered against her ribs as she dove beneath the surface, trying to find him. She opened her eyes, searching, but all she could see was a blue haze and white bubbles from the waterfall. She surged back up to the surface for air and then shrieked as something curled around her foot and pulled her back under. 
Water covered her head, and she reached down to claw at whatever had grabbed her leg, but it was already gone. She swam back up to the surface with visions of crocodiles and snakes in her head as she sucked in a lungful of air. The water beside her churned, and the wild man’s face appeared. He shook his head, and his long dark hair whipped around his face. He ducked below the water again and came back up, allowing Eden her first glimpse of his face unmarred by mud. 

My God. 
She couldn’t have guessed what lay beneath the heavy coats of mud. The chiseled features of a god matched his muscled form. There was a slight cleft in his chin, and the tan skin of his face made his blue eyes glow even more brilliantly. It was difficult to look away from his face. Dark shapes colored his shoulders. Tattoos? They looked tribal in design. She’d never been into tattoos before, but they only added to the mystique of this man. 
He swam slowly around her, his lips curved in a playful smile, then suddenly splashed water at her. Eden gasped and instinctively splashed back at him. He let out a deep, rich laugh that made her melt. They swam and played, not quite touching each other, but close enough that she was aware he was completely naked. Eventually her skin began to prune, and she realized that she was drenched in her only set of clothes. 
Now exhausted, she started to go back to the shore, but the man caught her hand and motioned for her to swim toward the falls. She followed him and blushed to the roots of her hair as he climbed out of the water and onto a small rock ledge, leaving nothing to the imagination. Then he vanished behind the waterfall. She gripped the smooth rocks at the base of the ledge and pulled herself up, finding it easier than she expected. Then she followed him behind the glass-like curtain of water. 
The cave behind the falls was deep and dark, and she could barely see the outline of the wild man ahead of her. 
“Wait! I can’t see.” Her voice echoed all around her despite the roar of the falls behind them. 
A warm hand caught hold of hers, and she was pulled deeper into the darkness before they stopped. Her feet touched something soft. Animal fur? She knelt and touched it. Yes, it was, but what kind she couldn’t tell. Hands touched her shoulders, pulling lightly at her clothes as though to remove them. 
“Wait . . . What?” 
“Too wet,” he said in a low voice. “Animal skins need to dry.” 
“Skins? Oh, my clothes.” She glanced around, not quite able to see him clearly. Maybe it would be okay to take off her clothes in the dark? Eden hesitated a second and then peeled off her clothes, even her panties. 
“Sit,” he urged, and she did, tucking her knees up to cover her body. 
“Hey, do you have a name?” she asked the tall, warm man sharing the darkness with her. 
“Thorne? Just Thorne? No last name?” Eden tried to see his face as he knelt down beside her on the bed of furs. Her heart jumped in nervousness at what he might do next. 
“Son of Keza,” he added quietly. 
“Is Keza your father?” 
“Mother.” The word was spoken with a fierce tenderness. 
“Is she here? Does she live with you?” 
There was a long silence. “No. Thorne left. Thorne see them sometimes.” 
Eden nearly jumped when she felt a hand touch hers. Thorne stroked a fingertip over her knuckles, the gentle touch exploring and soothing rather than threatening. 
“Sleep,” he said in the mantle of darkness. “Thorne protect.” 
Eden knew she shouldn’t lie down in her undressed state, nor should she bury her face in the furs and start to rest. But the makeshift bed was soft against her bare body. It was only late afternoon, but she was indeed tired. She was a little cold, but Thorne soon wrapped the furs around her, and she could smell an inviting masculine scent clinging to them. His scent. Clean man and waterfall with a hint of mango. It was a scent she would dream of for the rest of her life, just as she knew she would dream of this wild forest god.
My thoughts 💭
I really enjoyed this Tarzan retelling!Thorne and Eden’s chemistry is amazing. I enjoyed all the characters. The jungle demands vengeance for a wrong committed against it and Thorne was more than willing to help since the fool decided to touch what was his. This was a sweet but definitely steamy read! I was hooked from beginning to end, I definitely recommend.
