HARD by Scott Hildreth 

I found Scott Hildreth through the Facebook group “Romance & Erotica Author Faternity”. I’ve purchased many of Mr. Hildreth’s books, but have never found the time to read any of them. I had a small break and decided to dive in and start his Biker MC Romance series (otherwise know as the FFMC series) and I’m seriously regretting not diving into these books sooner.  So, here is my review of the first book in this series…

HARD

by Scott Hildreth

Ok, normally MC books are not my first choice. But my friends kept telling my how good this series was. So, a little down time inbetween the books I normally gravitate to, I started Hard, the first book in Scott Hildreth’s FFMC series. I could not put it down once I started. 

Peyton is the perfect woman for Nick/Crip. I had to chuckle at their initial meeting. I don’t know of any other book that could have pulled off a great story with that meeting. I’m still sitting here shaking my head as I think of it. And there were some twists in this book that I was not expecting. 

I don’t know that MC books will now be a go to for me, but I’m definitely hooked on the FFMC series. I’m eager to start the next book to see where this group of men go next. Rough is next on my list.

THE WRIGHT MISTAKE by K.A. Linde

 

 

 

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.

He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.

The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.

A second chance might destroy us both.

Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

MY REVEIW

This is the first book I’ve read by K.A. Linde. That said, even though this is NOT the first Wright book, it can be read as a standalone. This book does deal with some serious issues, alcoholism and domestic abuse, but it’s not the entire focus of this book.

The road to Julia and Austin’s romance is definitely a rocky one to say the least. Austin has alcohol issues and Julia has a major secret. It was interesting to watch the interplay between these two and their friends and family just added to everything. Julia needs to come clean with her secrets and Austin needs to face his issues. Things do come to a head and reading the ensuing results had me eager for the final results.

The Wright Mistake was a book I really enjoyed. I think I need to go check out the past Wright books now.

Blurb:

I’m Matt Hadder.
I’ve been called ruthless, savage—even brutal—by the men and women who work for me. And I’ve earned my reputation.

Wonderland Inc., a party planning organization for every major player in the world, is Oz, and I’m its Wizard. I can make anything—drugs, prostitutes, deals—appear for a night and disappear just as quickly.

This doesn’t make me good or bad—it makes me essential.

Wonderland Inc. was my life, until a beautiful contradiction of innocence and impurity, obedience and rebelliousness named Alex Little stepped in and turned both of our worlds upside down.

Welcome to Wonderland, Alex.
A place where everything appears normal.
But we’re all mad.

Tiny Tease:

“It is. It’s just…jarring.”

“You don’t find it natural?” I asked, putting a hand to her back and making her step closer. The pleasure girl moaned and writhed, her skin a flushed rose of arousal as Spade continued to play with her. Lou Diamond had joined them now too, feasting on her breasts and stroking his cock while kneeling on the plush red couch behind her opened leg.

Alex shook her head and nodded at the same time, her every nerve ending buzzing with confusion over what she’d been taught was appropriate, and the very opposite way she felt.

“That could be you,” I whispered, leaning into her back and grazing the shell of her ear with my breath.

She shivered—for about a millisecond—before bounding away and turning to meet my eyes, panic stark in hers. “Me? Do that? Like…right here? In front of people?” she stuttered. “No. No. Um, no.”

Excitement shot down my spine at her anxiousness. “No?” I questioned, careful to keep my tone reproachful. I wanted her to feel pressured—just to see if she could withstand it.

After a brief pause, she confirmed with a curt, determined shake of her head. “No.”

At six foot six and two hundred and seventy pounds, I was nothing short of physically intimidating. I was impressed by her backbone.

“Okay,” I agreed easily. Her eyes widened, and her plump lips parted. I took pleasure in her surprise.

My Review

WOW! This is a total turnabout from what this duo has written in the past. If you are after a rom-com like they have written before, then this may not be the book for you. That being said… I thoroughly loved this book. I was drawn into the sometimes not so pleasant world of Wonderland Inc. and enjoyed every minute of it.

Matt Hadder is sometimes a very bad man, from some peoples point of view. Alex was dressed as a rabbit for a child’s party when she meets Matt for the first time. After that, everything just flows and progresses. The relationship that develops between Matt and Alex is passionate and very solid.

Alex in Wonderland is a stupendous dark romance. I’m eager to see what Max & Monroe come up with for their next twisted fairytale.

KISS MY BOOTS by Harper Sloan

 

 

 

image001In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

Tate returns to his childhood hometown to start his life over and get a second chance at happiness. He might not remember Quinn from the summer vacations that he used to spend on his PawPaw’s farm but all it takes is one glance, and he can’t get the raven-haired beauty out of his mind. Can two people who have stopped believing in love take a chance to find it in each other? Or will the pain of the past prove too great a hurdle to conquer?

My Review

Oh wow! I’ve always liked second chance romances. But this has got to be one of my favorites now. I love that Tate finally is able to return and win back the woman he has loved for years. I cheered for every demon Quinn worked to overcome. Tate and Quinn, together is nothing short of amazing.

CLAM JAM by RC Boldt

REVIEW 



CLAM JAM 

by RC Boldt

If you love rom-com, you MUST read this. Clam Jam had me rolling. I mean really… Did Ry really think pretending to be gay would win the girl? Oh, come on. Comedy gold ready and happening. Ry and Maggie are perfect together. But the things Ry comes up with to dissuade any guys interested in Maggie, my side still hurts. This is the 3rd book I’ve read from RC Boldt, and I have yet to be disappointed. She has become one of my automatic click authors. Whether it’s the more serious side, or the fun of her rom-com, RC Boldt is one of my favorites.

Dr. ERotic by Max Monroe

Dr. ERotic
by Max Monroe

Blurb:

Dr. Erotic.

That’s what they’ve decided to call me, Scott Shepard, the head of St. Luke’s Hospital Emergency Department.

Just thinking about it makes me smile.

As the new face of the reality docuseries, The Doctor Is In, I plan to take his power and recognition right to the streets of New York City and into the pants of willing women.

Well, that was my plan.

 Until her—feisty, beautiful, and addictively sexy Harlow Paige.

A gossip columnist that just loves writing about yours truly, she’s everything I thought I never wanted and then some.

She drives me crazy.

Problem is, she doesn’t want to be anything when it comes to me—not friends, not lovers, not even adversaries.   

God, I love a good challenge.

Get ready, Harlow. Love is contagious.

My Review

Max & Monroe have done it again. (And I still don’t care who they are. Especially if they keep writing like this.) Harlow and Scott’s journey has been fun to watch. And per the teasers you may have seen, pancakes do play a recurring role in this book. The banter between Scott and Harlow will leave a stitch in your side. Sexy, hot and funny is par for the course for Max Monroe. 

UNTIL SAGE by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Meet Sage & Kimberly in Until Sage by Aurora Rose Reynolds
NOW LIVE!
Sage.jpg
Blurb
Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar. 
Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on. 
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.
But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken. 
until sage 413.jpg
EXCERPT
“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?”
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”
“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side.
“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”
“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”
“Am I?”
until sage 420.jpg
My Review
Sage Mayson may be the adopted son of Nico and Sofie, but he is a Mayson through and through. And Sage has found his #BOOM with Kim. There certainly isn’t a dull moment with these two (and the rest of the Mayson family). Plus throw in some twists from Kim’s biological family and Kim’s own illness. The book does bring up some things that happened in Until Ashlyn, but I truly feel Ms. Reynolds gives just enough info that you won’t feel lost if you haven’t read Ashlyn’s book, but not too much that ARR fans will be irritated with repeat information. Sage and Kim’s story is full of an alpha male, an independent woman and a whole crazy supportive group of family and friends.

OUT OF THE ASHES by RC Boldt

 

Title: Out of the Ashes
Author: R.C. Boldt
Genre: Contemporary Military Romance
Release Date: May 9, 2017
Blurb
Phoenix /fēniks/: (in classical mythology) a unique bird
inhabiting the Arabian Desert that burned itself on a funeral pyre before
rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle.
 
This isn’t mythology, it’s war, and Hendy is left in the
hands of Hell’s cruelest gatekeepers.
 
His team is killed before his very eyes, and despite his
efforts to save them, he’s captured and subjected to merciless torture—losing
virtually every piece of his identity but his pulse.
 
After his rescue, he returns home from Afghanistan, saddled
with facing the daunting task of healing his physical scars as well as the
invisible ones—his emotional demons.
 
Dr. Presley Cole isn’t one to shy away from a challenge.
Embarking on a new journey, she makes it her mission to prove to Hendy that his
life isn’t over; that he’s worthy of love.
 
Because sometimes even a phoenix needs help to rise…
My Review
5 STARS!!!
I’m not sure I can find the words to say how much I loved Hendy and Presley’s story. I know Hendy is a fictional character but I truly believe how Hendy felt about his scars is how many feel. And women, no matter the size, like Presley, have issues with how they themselves look. But I love the strength of these two together. Some issues may have just grazed upon, and my heart broke for what Hendy endured. Beautiful, funny, heartfelt book. Now that I have found RC Boldt, she is another author I will automatically one-click.

LOST RIDER by Harper Sloan


LOST RIDERBy Harper Sloan 
I haven’t read a “cowboy” story for probably close to 20 years. Just the type of story that really hasn’t appealed to me for quite some time. I ALMOST took a pass at this book, but it’s by one of my all time favorite authors. And I have to admit, I really enjoyed it. 
Maverick had a very rough childhood and left town, leaving the girl he loved behind. But when he comes back, oh how I hated that jackass. He was rude and nasty to Clay, Quinn and especially to Leigh (of course the jerk didn’t recognize her either). But I believe a lot of that had to stem from the reason he was back in town.
Maverick and Leighton have a magical love. Strong and independent in each of their own rights, but together… they are so much more!
My favorite side character was Marybeth Perkins. I really wish there had been more of her in this book and I truly hope to see more of her in the rest of this series. When she grabbed Maverick’s ear… smh. 
Now I’m impatiently waiting for Clay and Quinn to get their stories.
