Such a decadent read! I’ve read this a number of times because it’s just one of those books that you wouldn’t be able to help yourself from visiting and revisiting. It was funny, at times romantic and sexy as hell. I had no expectations whatsoever when I requested this book from Loveswept. Man, what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. Easily one of my favourite erotic romance reads this year.

So we’ve got a couple of characters who had known each other since they were in high school. You can say they pretty much grew in the same affluent circle. But both veered in the opposite directions growing up. Dawn is a rebel through and through. Just like any teens, she rebelled against her family but not for the absence of a cause. She was made to become a black sheep when nothing ever pleased her father. She was not one to conform (even though she tried her hardest at first). Rory, on the other hand, lived to please his family. As such he became successful while Dawn struggled in her career.

Several years later, their paths meet again when Rory, now a billionaire was tasked to buy off the current tenants on the coastal and touristy town of Haven. Dawn did not make his job easy, but as these stories go, their reunion was ripe with sexual tension that neither could deny, let alone stop.

I love Dawn. She’s an independent woman who was dealt with some bad cards. But that didn’t stop her from living and pursuing what she wants out of life. Her store was struggling so when Rory made her an offer that a normal person couldn’t refuse, Dawn didn’t jump in head first. She’s upfront, candid, and she fights for herself. It would’ve been easy to lean on Rory (who was a billionaire, of all things) but she didn’t. She lived the life she wanted even though it almost cost her dearly.

This book is fire, y’all. It sizzles in the romance/sex department. Dawn and Rory’s chemistry was off the charts aided by a humorous banter and plenty of attraction on both sides. It almost made me cry, too. There’s a very touching note at the end about the author’s cat that almost did me in. Lol. Y’all, if you’re on a lookout for an outstanding romance reads, please consider this book. It was absolutely amazing!

[702]: Guarding Mr. Fine by HelenKay Dimon

Funny, sexy, and a whip-smart follow up to an already enjoyable series.


Guarding Mr. Fine
by HelenKay Dimon

This series gets better and better with each installment, you guys. I’ve been loving everything that HelenKay has been giving us! I was especially looking forward to reading Seth’s story because he was hilarious in the previous books. I knew that there’s more to him other than the smart ass CIA agent we’ve come to know and he didn’t disappoint.

In here, he’s tasked to guard the newly appointed US consul general in Munich. However, he knows that it’s a cover for something else because no one knows anything about the guy. He seems to have come from out of nowhere. There’s something mysterious about his background and the real reason why someone inexperienced like him got the job. Not only does Seth knew next to thing about this guy but he’ll figure out soon enough that Rick Fine knew him in more ways than one.

One of the things that I look forward to when I read a romance novel is the serendipitous meeting of the main characters. Admittedly, their meet-cute wasn’t so cute. They went from 0-60 in a blink of an eye. It was kind of hot! They met at a bar and hit it off so well that they ended up having a tryst in the shaded part of the club. They thought it was a one-off thing, a one-night stand without sleeping together. But they had another thing coming since Ric knew a bit more about Seth than Seth knows about Rick. Their history is for you to find out, readers.

Rick Fine was sent to investigate the apparent suicide of the former consulate general. But the investigation is only a front for why he was there. As usual, there’s never a dull moment in this installment. Aside from the sleuthing that the boys were involved in, the romance will also have you engrossed. There’s a battle of egos and dominance between the two that heightens their chemistry to a fever pitch. What else could I ask for, right? Seth is a man-of-the-world kind of guy. He doesn’t have a commitment phobia per se, but he’s smart enough to know that a relationship between two CIA agents is not realistic nor it is advisable. So yeah, he’ll do what he can to sabotage his feelings towards Rick. There’s also that history thing that I mentioned above. Whatever it is, Seth has to learn to forgive and forget if he ever wants their relationship to foster.

Overall, HelenKay has been hitting all the right notes with her books. I keep saying I need to read more books by hers, but it keeps slipping my mind. Well, adding the rest of her books on my wishlist for future downloads when I’m in need of something fun, fast, and sexy.

[696]: Wait For It by M.O’Keefe

From sizzling chemistry to boring compatibility.


Wait For It
by Molly O’Keefe

Tiffany and Blake’s meet cute wasn’t so cute. It was contemptuous to start, possibly even explosive. It’s the reason why I was chomping at the bit to read this installment. Because there’s no other romantic device I love more than the enemies-to-lovers trope.

By the first few pages, it was not as earth-shattering as I’d hoped for, unfortunately.

Blake has had to clean up for his brother all their lives. Phil was very good at leaving a trail of brokenhearted, and more often, abused women in his wake. So when Tiffany and her kids came into the picture, he was there with a cheque book ready to buy her off so they may disappear from their lives. Thinking of her kids and the need to flee her abusive husband, Tiffany took the money and ran towards a fresh start. Only it didn’t last long as Phil found them again picking up where he left off.

So the explosive meeting between Tiffany and Blake fizzled practically from the very start of this book. Which is disappointing because that was the main draw for me. It was like meeting two different characters. I can say, however, that separately, Tiffany and Blake are admirable in their own ways. But as a couple, I thought they went from having sizzling chemistry to boring compatibility.

It’s when they added sex into the mix that did it for me. Tiffany has all but lost her libido during the course of her married life with Phil and who could blame her? Phil was verbally and physically abusive so any inkling to indulge in carnal activities left her feeling cold. Blake thinks he can light up her fire again (and he did). But the sex, I found, was gratuitous and awkward at times so I didn’t find it steamy to say the least.

 The underlying lesson of this book is that you can’t buy everything; not happiness, not love, and especially not trust. Blake had to find that out himself. Though he had very good intentions, his method of atoning for his brother’s sins was messed up. You can’t erase traumatic memories of abuse and desolation by money. Tiffany was the hard lesson that he had to learn. Tiffany had some learning she had to do as well. Mostly, independence and courage. This installment could’ve been good but I had a hard time digesting the sexual dynamics between these two. Frankly, it left me feeling cold.

Bodhi McKnight has always had everything handed to him on a silver platter: fame, success, money, girls. The raven-haired, blue-eyed hottie is the son of Hollywood A-listers, and when he’s asked to join the boy band Virtuous Paradox, his star shoots even higher. But so do expectations, leading Bodhi down a destructive path of addiction—until a drop-dead gorgeous guardian angel shows him her sizzling brand of tough love.

When Bodhi ends up in rehab, he doesn’t expect to meet someone as cool and down-to-earth as Kimberly Gordon. Although he’s enjoyed the company of beautiful, charming women before, none of them have tried to get to know the “real” Bodhi. But Kimberly isn’t fazed by his stardom. She’d rather go horseback riding, teach Bodhi to play guitar, or ask him about his feelings. Soon Bodhi realizes he’s fallen head over heels for her. He just hopes that he’s strong enough to protect what they have from all the pressures and temptations of the outside world.


I usually stay away from books with detailed drug use. My stomach can’t handle the deliberate physical and mental destruction the characters put themselves through. When I got the notification from Loveswept about this book, I was instantly filled with dread; and with a title like, “Blow”, I sort of had a sense of what I was signing up for. I’ve read quite a few of Heidi’s books in the past and have enjoyed them for the most part. Unfortunately, and in my humblest opinion, I found this to be not of her usual writing.

Blow is a series opener about your atypical rock band romance (of the sex, drugs and rock & roll variety). I’ve read a number of them in my lifetime because I’m a fan. They’re my go-to when I’m in need of a quick, fun read. That’s why I didn’t hesitate to download a copy but as I’ve said, this was not of her usual caliber. The one glaring thing about this book was the relationship. It went from 0-60 right off the bat. And while I generally don’t have a problem with that, I had a problem with them using each other. I mean, Kim should’ve known better. As a caregiver/assistant therapist/counselor, she knew that a relationship with a patient is wrong. Heck, some therapists don’t even recommend a relationship soon after a stint in a rehab period. So for her to jump right in didn’t sit well with me.

Bodhi was only too weak to resist, of course. He ignored his doctor’s advise and gave in to the basest of his instinct. In the real world, theirs was the kind of relationship that has disastrous implications. But since this was fiction, of course they found a way to work through it.

The characters seem to have dichotomous personalities as well. There’s the calm exterior that they use in public that becomes explosive once unleashed. I found it weird. But I suppose their characterizations are very realistic in that way. We all have a front that we let others to see. This couldn’t be any truer with Kim and Bodhi.

Over all, I think I’d like to follow this series despite my misgivings. I’ve only known Heidi for her M/M romance, so this being of the hetero variety is a novelty for me. I’m looking forward to knowing the rest of the band and whomever else Heidi has in store for us.

Rating: DNF


I’ve not DNF’d a book in a long time because I didn’t believe in the practice. I believe that I’m doing a disservice to the authors who worked hard at their craft. But after a considerable time, I’ve also learned that I cannot, in good conscience, allow my TBR pile to grow bigger because I’m stuck reading a book for weeks at a time. Such is the case with The Swan Riders.

I read The Scorpion Rules a month or so ago because I got this sequel for review. And while I struggled with that book as well, I somehow managed to get through it just fine. It wasn’t the most amazing thing I’ve read but it was passable, at least. I had hoped that The Swan Riders will redeem it all for me, though. I rooted for it to get better. But after a few weeks of trudging along, I could no longer do it.

I had an overwhelming feeling of apathy with this book. It was unbelievably slow, sterile, and clinical. Greta as a human left me cold. Greta as an AI left me feeling hopeless. I just didn’t have it in me to be gracious and patient. I was bored and wishing I was reading something else. And it wouldn’t be fair if I couldn’t give it the attention it deserves. I had to abandon this one.

This book made me rage. Romanticizing rape is never okay. And if you tell me that “fantasy rape” is not romanticizing rape, don’t. You’re wasting your breath.

“Mr. Romantic isn’t as dark as some of my characters. James Fenici is dark. Merc is dark. Hell, I think Ford is probably darker than Mr. Romantic. So that’s why there’s no trigger warning in my blurb. This isn’t a dark book and if you think it is, you missed the point.” (from the page, End of Book Shit).

The author writes that readers who will find this book to be dark will have more than likely missed the point entirely.  And I’m okay with that. I don’t care if your book is something that’s not written with my taste in mind. What I care about is the level of patronizing superiority to assume that you know what would and wouldn’t set your readers off.   I’ve read some pretty fucked up Erotica in my life but nothing could ever be this level of fucked up. The man, “Mr. Romantic”, likes to exercise his dominance with fantasy rape. He’s physically and verbally abusive. And yet, the author decided not to put a trigger warning on her blurb, because, like she said, this is not dark. But who are you to decide?

Mr. Romantic has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. He grated on my nerves from the get go. I enjoy dominant characters from time to time, but I was not ready for this man. Ivy Rockwell is the fly trapped in his web. And if there’s anything I hate more than asshole characters it’s the doormat heroines that plays opposite them.

The only thing that matters to me is rescuing my sister from the drug-cooking cult that once enslaved us both. I’ve run cons my whole life, and I’ll use my body to get whatever I need. Max Daniels is the last connection I have to that world, the one person reckless enough to get involved. Besides, now that his brothers have turned on him, he needs me too.

The deal was supposed to be simple: a place to hide in exchange for rescuing my sister. Now he’s my prisoner. Totally at my mercy. But I’m the one captivated. Enthralled. Doing everything he asks of me until I’m not sure who’s in control.

We both crave the heat. The more it hurts, the better. But what if Max wants a different life now, to leave the game . . . to love me? I thought I knew better than to get burned. Now I’m in too deep to pull away. And the crazy thing is . . . I don’t want to.


It is with my utmost and heartfelt regret that I’m writing this review. If I’m being honest, my real feelings go deeper than dislike. I had so many problems with this installment – mostly centered on the major characters. Frankly, they did some things that I didn’t agree with and the stuff they pulled on each other was despicable. Regardless of how the story went and no matter how satisfying that ending was, I couldn’t get past my initial revulsion. This is why I’m not cut out for angst or anything resembling dark erotic tales. It reminded me of how I felt about Tiffany Reisz’ The Original Sinners novels and A.N. Roquelaure’s Sleeping Beauty series. My curiosity got the better of me on that one.

In case you’re not familiar with this series, the second book ended with Max and Joan/Olivia on the run from the MC gang that Max used to lead. Having barely escaped death, Joan drove to Florida where she knew her aunt would be able to fix  the bloodied and beaten Max. Her plan of rescuing her sister from the hands of a sadistic drug lord was temporarily on hold – at least until Max recovers from his wounds. But Max was bent on revenge so Joan had to literally handcuff him to make sure he doesn’t escape. This did not bode well with Max. Thus begins the agony of watching a twisted foreplay before my eyes. While some would find it erotic, I found it painful to read. They were borderline abusive and toxic; so much so that it made me feel uncomfortable.

There was also a scene that I couldn’t bear to read. I’d rather not say what it was, but I wasn’t a fan. I skimmed that part mostly because I really hated it. At that point, I debated whether or not I should continue. Truth be told, I haven’t DNF’d a book in a couple of years, so I was not about to let this book change that. I persevered but my face had a permanent grimace the whole time I was reading it. Personal feelings aside, Molly O’Keefe captured Max and Joan in all their broken glory. They’re both determined, albeit, self-destructive; guilt-ridden but their hearts are in the right place – at least when it comes to protecting their families. It takes patience to be able to endure them, and unfortunately, they caught me at a time when I was feeling a bit less generous.

Despite my abhorrence to this book, I’m very excited to read the next one which is, hopefully, Tiffany and Blake’s story. From what I’ve read so far, these two are a ticking time bomb. Everything I Left Unsaid is, arguably one of the best NA series out there. I hope this review will not deter you from reading the books because you would be missing out on stories that are true, gritty, and heartbreaking.

We played our roles, told each other lies.

But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. We’re face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real.

We still have secrets—but so much is crystal clear:

The thrilling danger.

The raw, naked desire.

The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.

Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he can’t shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now it’s my turn, if only he will let me.


The end of Everything I Left Unsaid just about killed me. I can’t even imagine the pain of reading this book the first time it came out. To have to wait just to find out what happened next is a torture I’m lucky enough not to have endured. Sometimes, it pays to be unaware and I’m glad I was a latecomer to this series. Like I mentioned in my review of the first book, I had to fight the urge to pull an all-nighter because Ms. O’Keefe’s ending was torturous, to say the least. And so, I devoured this installment with the same fervor I did with the Everything I Left Unsaid.

In here, we find Dylan and Annie coming to terms with what they need from each other and what they have to do to move forward. Annie’s past will thankfully be behind her at the beginning of this novel. Dylan, however, still had a lot of shit to deal with. First and foremost, the burden of his missing brother that will threaten everything he cared for. And he’s yet to reconcile the fact that he can’t see himself ever forgiving his father who’s practically near death. The past is rushing up to collide with his present in possibly the most devastating way. Unless he can somehow stop it. 

This felt like a prolonged ending of the first book and an introduction to the third  (Burn Down the Night), which is Max’s story. He’s Dylan’s older brother who, unfortunately, couldn’t escape the life their father forged for him. But we’ll learn that Max did everything he could to give Dylan a fighting chance at a better life. Though it would seem that Dylan has succeeded, he’s never fully escaped. Because the criminal clutches of that motorcycle club Max belonged to is far-reaching, revengeful, and they never forget.

Annie and Dylan’s relationship finally moved forward in this book. Dylan had a few moments of self-flagellation and pity party which drove me insane. The martyrdom didn’t suit him, which made me want to kick his ass every time he thought Annie deserves better (I’m sure she did, but come on.). I’m also happy that Annie stood her ground. She wanted Dylan to have a semblance of a relationship with his father regardless of how tumultuous it had been in the past.  So she made sure he understood how important it was for her to stay put so she can care for him.

I’m happy with the resolution of Annie and Dylan’s story. I’m ready to move on to Max. I’m not gonna lie, I’m terrified too because Max’s story sounds like a road trip to Angstville. If I haven’t mentioned it before, I’m really glad I found these books. It made me realize that not all NA are created equal. This series is definitely one of the good ones!

[623]: HIM by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

him


I’ve been chomping at the bit to read this book since I got wind of it from Quest Reviews’ blog. I’d forgotten about it for a few months until the book resurfaced last week while I was wasting valuable time browsing Goodreads. Holy Hannah. *fans self* Hockey players. Gay hockey players. Gah-huh.

RYAN AND JAMIE

Since they were teens, Ryan and Jamie has attended a hockey summer camp where they learn to hone their skills on the ice. Ryan has always known that he likes boys more than girls. And he’s always been the rebellious, ballsy type who does everything to get what he wants. It just so happens that he wants his best friend, Jamie. He’s been in love with him for years. One drunken, horny night, he propositioned Jamie. After making good on a bet that he’d lost, he severed all contacts with him because he felt that he forced himself on his very straight BFF.

Years later, their respective schools are about to face off in a hockey championship equivalent to Final Four. When Jamie’s team lost, Ryan could not accept the fact that he’ll never see him again. He’s always regretted the friendship that they’d lost and the radio silence that he initiated. And since he wants to get Jamie out of his system once and for all, he’s going to do whatever it takes to do just that. Even if it means teaching at the same camp for six weeks where it all began.

SECOND CHANCE, FRIENDS TO LOVERS

I mean, who doesn’t enjoy this type of romance, right? Combine that with the hotness that is Ryan and my Kindle practically burst into flames. This is also about Jamie’s realization that he may have been lying to himself all these years. But it wasn’t a gradual thing. He didn’t suddenly realize he was gay because he couldn’t get it up with the girls. Ryan was more like an intense static electricity for him. As soon as he saw him, he knew deep down that underneath the lust was something so much more.

Ryan is a tattooed fantasy come to life. He’s aggressive, persistent, crass, and an honest-to-goodness bad boy of your dreams. Above all, he’s courageous who’s ever so willing to face the reality of who he is and would not wait for fate to intervene. I love that about him. He’d rather face the world with honesty than wait for the rug to be swept under him.

I adore the friendship and the eventual relationship between them. They had each other’s backs from day one, but they’re also very competitive. Their banter was hilarious, but man, they’re hotter when they argue.

Speaking of hot, the sex scenes are guaranteed to get you reaching for ice-cold water so you can douse yourself. My face was permanently on fire not because I was embarrassed, but because reading the sex scenes felt like rubbing ghost chili on your face: painfully hot.

IN RETROSPECT

This writing duo perfectly captured all the emotions of love between best friends. The insecurities, the doubts, and the joy of realizing they reciprocate your feelings. It’s also about finally figuring out who you are and what would make you the happiest in the grand scheme of things. It’s not always an easy decision, but if you’re honest with yourself, the rest will fall into place.

There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself – and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice, the most important of my life. Drew already made his –in fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville. Alone. Well, sort of alone….

What I’ve come to realize is that old habits die hard and sometimes you have to go back to where you began, before you can move ahead.

TWISTED picks up two years after Tangled’s end, and is told from Kate’s POV.


So here we are back for more. This time, through Kate’s point of view. This isn’t a rehashing of what had happened in Tangled, but a continuation of their story. I’m not going to lie, if it wasn’t for the eventual resolution of their story, I would be leaving a scathing review. But since I was able to take more good than bad, I decided to give it a middle grade.

Once again, we’re treated to the hilarity of Drew’s twisted view of the world and life in general. The sex is hotter than ever and even more adventurous. They can’t get enough of each other and Drew seems to be showing signs that he’s really changing his ways. So why then do we find Kate broken hearted at the beginning of the story? Well, you’d have to read it, of course.

THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE

Gah. I saw it from a mile away. I saw the minute that these two used miscommunication as a conflict device to perpetrate angst. Kate, what was so hard about saying, hold up, hold up. What the fuck are you talking about? No. You need to listen to me first before you go and hire a stripper to purposely hurt my feelings. Did you not learn your lesson from the first book?

 And Drew. Your mistrust is so unfounded. Kate was not the one who had different girls every night before you guys met. She was the one who was in a relationship for years. She wasn’t the type to cheat, you dumbass! How in the world did one plus one equal to Kate cheating? Without even due consideration to the type of person Kate is, you went and fucked it all up again. Sighhhhhhhhh. I swear if it wasn’t for your hotness, you’d have been minced meat by now.

IN RETROSPECT

These two had their own shares of immaturity and foolishness, but such is the reality of a relationship that had a stormy beginning and was patched up by office furniture to begin with (don’t ask). I can’t really blame them for that because we’re all mad when it comes to love. I did say they made up for it in the end. And that’s the best thing about Emma Chase’s stories. She paints flawed characters in a light that we can all – unfortunately – relate and see.

[619]: Tangled by Emma Chase

840045


Last week, I had the brilliant idea to jump start my Spring cleaning early. When I set that plan into motion, I knew I need some mindless fun to listen to while I tackle the job. I decided to check out the first book to Emma Chase’s Tangled series. Four audiobooks later, my walls are freshly painted, my pantry is now organized, and my foyer is sporting a new look. Besides the inconvenience of laughing mid-stroke (painting. Painting, guys) while I was doing corners and edges, I had such a great time listening to all four books. They’re not perfect but highly entertaining, nonetheless.

All the books are told in first person narrative which worked splendidly well because we get a perfect sense of the person speaking. Drew, for one,  was such a candid speaker. Being in his head will either make you laugh like a hyena or swear he’s the most stupid man in the world. In any case, he was fun all through and through.

Tangled, #1: The Drew and Katherine Show

This book started off with Drew practically on his death bed with the flu. He then takes the reader on an introspective journey as to why he is the way he is. He is, for all intents and purposes, your cookie-cutter successful man in New York City who has the lay of the land and ladies falling at his feet. He lives by a set of rules which includes not sleeping with anyone at work. When he met Katherine at a bar, he was freshly er, blown. So you can just imagine the kind of playa Drew is. He has no scruples, to be honest. But he’s about to meet his comeuppance when he sets his sights to Kate.

GOD’S GIFT TO WOMEN

Ughhhhhh. As much as I hate this stereotype, there is a small part of me who can’t get enough. Drew is such a male specimen, but he is the worst. And I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t think there is one woman on this Earth who is powerful enough to change him. Don’t get me wrong he’s not all that bad at times. He’s such a softie when it comes to his niece. His interactions with her are too adorable for words. I also like his relationship with his sister, his parents, and his friends. But he’s such a dog when it comes to the women unfortunate enough to cross his path.  Then Kate came along and ruined all the fun. He thought it was going to be easy. He thought his charms were enough to win her over. So he chased her. And when he caught her, it was a supernova event.

WHEN THINGS WENT SOUTH

Being the idiot that he is, he went and fucked up his relationship with Kate. I’m not gonna go into specifics, but just know that he’s a dumbass. So then he tries to win her back by annoying the living shit out of her. When all else failed – and this is when I went, huh? – he hired someone to redecorate his home office to win her back. Duuude. I love me some ergonomic chairs and all, but let me tell you, that’s not going to win you back my affection. I mean, are you for real?! Anyway, I thought it was stupid. Lol.

IN RETROSPECT

But hey, don’t let that stop you from reading this book (and checking out this series). Like I mentioned above, this is all good fun. It’s hilarious, crass, and holy Hannah is it ever hawt. Read it for the laughs. Read it for the sex. Whatever your motivations are, don’t read it because you’re looking to nourish your intellect.  Ha.
