Synopsis

Will Middleton has no clue how much I want him.
He looks at me like I’m an angel,
And all I can think about is how he would look tied to my bed.

He’s the perfect gentleman.
Amazing considering he’s related to The Spencer Ryan.
He is everything Spencer is not. Sensitive, considerate, and unassumingly handsome.
I’d like to show him that’s a good thing.
But he broke my heart once,
and I don’t know if I can let him do it again.

Mags Goldsmith is a beautiful, confident heiress and she seems to want me.
Although she really shouldn’t. I’m not what she needs.
She’s a goddess. And when I say goddess,
I mean erotica writing siren, who knows more than one use for a riding crop

Everything I thought I knew about her has been rewritten,
And now she’s got me tied up in knots.
She’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more,
I just have to prove I’m worthy.

This is not your average British romance.
It’s a tale of second chances, strap-ons, and of course sex oranges,
All bound up and tied to a bedroom door.

My Review

Will, what can I say? I’ll be honest. It took me some time to get into this book. I was expecting something different. And, different it was.  Will turned out to be fantastic.  Will and Mags had a relationship years ago and Will still has feelings for Mags.  If you’ve read Spencer, Will is quite the opposite. He’s vulnerable and sweet, but quite surprising.  Mags and Will are quite different so I understood Will’s insecurities.

I truly enjoyed reading about Will and especially enjoyed the changes that came from both of the main characters.

It was fun to reconnect with characters from Spencer and to see how they were sprinkled into this gem. So yes, you still get some Spencer in this book.

This story brings fantasies and trust to life. It’s a second chance romance with humor, laugh out loud moments and plenty of exceptionally well written sex scenes.

Kerry has has done it again with her latest 5 star read.  So get to it, get your copy today!

5 Stars!

#Review -Caught in the Flames by @KaceySheabooks

Susi Reviews Caught in the Flames

by Kacey Shea

b1271-cif_frontcover_lores

 

Callie Gordon is more than a little obsessed…

I love firemen.

Heroic. Selfless. Brave.

Not to mention the uniform with those damn sexy pants…I can’t get enough.

Imagine my surprise when local fire captain, Chase Matthews, wanders into my yard on moving day. I’ve hit real estate gold. Hot as sin with that all-knowing smirk creates an instant spark. Welcome to the neighborhood never looked so good.

But dating a firefighter isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Chase keeps me at distance even when I attempt to break down his walls. A friendship with the nosy eccentric woman down the street reveals there’s more to Chase than he’s willing to share. I’m playing with fire and bound to get burned.

Secrets unfold.

Truths are brought to light.

Can I handle the heat? Or will my love for this man prove that sometimes even good girls have to burn down the house?

Caught in the Flames is a standalone contemporary romance and intended for adult readers due to explicit content.

Firefighters… another man in uniform that brings me to my knees. I have to start off by telling you that this is my favorite of all of Kacey Shea’s books. I have had the pleasure of reading her first series, Uncovering Love.  That series was real, heartwarming, sexy and enjoyable.  But this book, it totally rocked!

As a reader, I have enjoyed watching Kacey’s talent as a writer flourish.  This standalone hooked me from the start.

Callie, the female lead is an awesome, independent and caring young woman.  She is one character I really enjoyed reading about.  She wants to find love and loves firefighters. Yeah, I totally understand her predicament.  She even lives near the fire station.  Convenient, eh?  She is surrounded by two amazing, funny and wonderful friends, Jill and Alicia.  They are the ones that help keep her balanced.  All of these women are well written and perfectly scripted into this book keeping the story light, entertaining and fun.

Callie loves chocolate and she meets this gorgeous firefighter named Chase with the rich chocolate colored eyes.  Everything about him is pretty damn perfect. Longing for an ideal relationship, Chase seems to fit the bill until trust issues arise.  (No spoilers)

Callie also meets a new woman in her neighborhood.  Kiki, the cat lady who seems to lose her cat Silas often, winds up becoming one her best friends. Her years, wisdom, mutual love for firefighters and advice, prove to be priceless for Callie.

Then there is Ash.  Oh Ash. I have such a soft spot for this other firefighter hottie.  Don’t be fooled by his full name, Ashley or his choice of cars.  Ash turns out to be quite the man in this story.  Sorry, but you’ll have to read the book to meet Ash.

There is jealousy, a little bit of crazy, and plenty of laugh out loud dialogue to keep you reading this book in one sitting.  The sexual innuendos between Chase and Callie made me giggle and enjoy those initial moments between the characters.  And the sex, well… it is hot!

Just when I thought the story was going in one direction, Kacey totally changed it up and I am so glad she did.

I won’t spoil this review for you if you haven’t read this book yet.  But, Caught in the Flames is a brilliant grab some wine and read in one sitting book.

I gave this book 5 stars!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

#Review At That Moment by Scarlett Hartgrove @CristolKlear

Susi Reviews At That Momeny by Scarlett Hartgrove

ff88e-at-that-moment-front-rgb2b252812529

 

Cara Mears has a good life…simple, satisfying, and safe. 

 

She owns a successful company, has loyal friends, and a decent relationship, and has convinced herself that this is enough.

 

This is a life she knows how to navigate.

 

Enter Dylan Madigan, her long-time movie-star crush, devastatingly handsome, arrogant, and famous.

 

At that moment, everything changes.

 

Their seductive and romantic journey begins, exposing their vulnerabilities, testing their resolve, and leaving them emotionally naked.

 

The bigger-than-life movie star turns Cara’s life inside out and upside down, but is it for the better?

 

What happens when dreams actually become reality?


My Review

 

Compelling, addictive and sexy!

I’m a sucker for a well written romance.  A talented author is one who can make their story come alive in my mind.  At That Moment, Scarlett Hartgrove’s debut has all of the elements I admire in a romance and her brilliant story came to life just like a motion picture.

 

At That Moment is filled with brilliantly written “moments” that entice, enthrall and enchant the reader.  Scarlett created characters that I loved from the very first “moment” I met them.  Cara is my favorite and the most relatable for me since I found we shared so many common interests.  Dylan,  Wow!  I know I immediately fell for him just like Cara.  There is much to love about him.  After all, it’s not every day that you get to meet your movie crush, much less develop a friendship with him.  The cast of supporting characters was perfect.  They added and aided in keeping the dynamic flow of this story alive.  They kept the light parts light, offered humor, love  and support when the main characters needed them the most.  They were extremely important in keeping Cara focused as well.

 

As a reader, I pictured every moment in this exquisitely written book.  The details and descriptions were brilliant.  At That Moment,  takes the cake with flawless characters, exquisite and vivid locations and an exceptional plot.

This story is one I highly recommend.  It is a romance that will hook you, make you smile, swoon, I know I did, feel some angst, make you mad, and truly feel the love.

I am anxiously awaiting book 2.

I gave this book 5 stars!

I love the beach, cooking, gardening, sweet tea, cats, good books, music, and warm, sunny weather.

Someday, if someone remembers me as a kind, compassionate, and strong person, I will have lived the life I always wanted.

Synopsis:

 

Carly Reynolds doesn’t have much faith in men. She no longer trusts her heart to lead—not after doing her so wrong. Raising her sons alone, Carly must learn to stand on her own. But she’s stronger now, wiser, and determined to move forward.

 

Derek Taylor, the sexy tatted drummer for Three Ugly Guys, doesn’t have much time for women, except to hook up and get off. He’d rather focus on writing music and living the career he’s always dreamed. Fate may have other plans.

And when strange things start to transpire Carly must face the reality that her past has come back to haunt. Can the woman she’s become dare to hope for love again? And which man will win her heart?

 

Uncovering Hope is the third and final book in the Uncovering Love series, but it can also be read as a standalone. Contains adult themes and explicit content and is intended for mature audiences.

My Review

Do you enjoy reading books in a series?  Well, I do.  I love books in a series because once I become invested in characters, the anticipation of reading more about them is thrilling.  Uncovering Hope is the third book in the Uncovering Love series by Kacey Shea and the one that truly touched me the most.

Kacey Shea has created a dynamic cast of characters which are all part of the three books in her series.  In this book, Carly Reynolds, Tate’s sister is the main character.  This is her story. Readers will discover why she lives with her brother Tate and his fiancee.  Her emotional backstory comes to life as well revealing so much more.

One particular character introduced in the second book, Derek the drummer from Three Ugly Guys is back and trust me, you will love him.

Carly is a single mom of two boys who works as a nurse with cancer patients in a hospital.   In this book a handsome doctor enters her life as well. Hmmm…. Hot sexy rocker or hot steamy doctor? Life isn’t fair when it comes to making decisions right?

As a I mentioned, this book touched my heart as well as made me laugh many times.  Derek the drummer brought on the sexy and the lines that made me chuckle.  He is one sweet/sexy talker. Surprisingly, he proved to be so much more than expected and for that, he is my favorite character.

All great books have wonderful supporting characters and Kacey did a brilliant job writing them and sprinkling them in this book.  They each bring a unique touch to the story making it so special. If you read the previous books, you’ll find out what happens to the rest of the gang.

Be prepared to laugh out loud, keep a tissue handy for some tears, and you may even blush.  Trust me, Derek knows sexy!

I’d love to tell you more but, I don’t do spoilers.  One click this book today!

 

I gave this book 5 stars!

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

My Favorite Lines

“So, I’ve got to know.  You ever fantasize about playing nurse and patient? ‘Cause I feel a cold coming on.”  His poor attempt at a cough has me laughing.  “You never stop, do you?”

“You’re in a rush, Cinderella… your clothes gonna disappear if you’re not home by midnight? “Cause I wanna be around for that.”

“No dumbass. I have a sitter and I promised her I’d be home by midnight.”

“Right. Kids.”

“Watch it kid.”  I select one of the selfies and caption it. “Like the new haircut? Had to get in line withe my brother from another mother, Luis.  Who else wants in? #fuckcancer.”  I ask for Luis’ account so I can tag him.

“My, my, my! Lookie what we have here. Mama’s been holding out on me.”  He lets loose a long whistle.  “Dear God, woman!” How many dicks does one person need?”

“I need to hear you say yes, Carly. Yes that you want more.  Yes that you want me. Because I’ve never wanted anything more than I want you right now.”

Blog Tour – Review/Excerpt & Giveaway – Unconventional (The Manhattanites #4) by @AveryAster

Unconventional BT Banner

 

Unconventional

 

 

From the NYT Bestselling author of The Manhattanites series and for fans of such films as Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Wild Things comes a ménage romance posing the question; can two men share the same woman forever?

They are the best of friends and the greatest of lovers. Two men and one woman, searching for fortune and fame, bound together by an eroticism their money and power can’t buy them. Luigi, the romantic alpha hunk. Rocco, the exotic bisexual. Jemma, the insatiable beauty who possesses them both.

From their first rendezvous in Milan, the three set out on a wicked course, jet-setting from the kinky underground sex clubs of Berlin, to the lavish palaces of Moscow, to New York’s high society in pursuit of pleasure. They have only each other to care for. That is…until a baby comes along and changes their destiny. But which of them is the father? And will they continue their poly relationship or give in to convention?

Excerpt

Three Months Ago Isola di Girasoli,

Mediterranean Sea

 

On top of the cliff, overlooking the blue sea, I grabbed my boyfriend’s hand, pulled him to my side and asked, “Ready, bello?”

Rocco’s short nails grazed my skin. He’d been biting them all week. He always did when he was nervous.

“Jemma is going to say yes…” he whispered in my ear.

“Sì, of course she is.”

A few days before, we’d selected the spot.

He’d suggested, “This is where we’ll ask her to marry us,”

I’d agreed.

The view, the place… so magical and perfetto.

Inhaling deeply, I smelled the briny air filled with the faint sticky aroma of sunflowers. The ground was covered in them, and Isola di Girasoli had even been named after them. Growing on vivid green stalks, their bright yellow faces open, reaching up to the white sky for warmth and light. They were gleefully rooted about, almost as if cheering us on.

In a way, Rocco and I were similar to those flowers reaching for something—nourishment and love.

We got down on our knees, and the warm soil pressed under my legs. Glancing up at the woman we loved, we each took her hand.

Jemma Fereti. Tall. Striking. Ours. We called her dolce because she always tasted like tiramisu when we kissed.

As I studied her finger, the one I’d put the ring on, I thought about us…

For me, taking Jemma as my bride, and Rocco as my groom, meant forever. My life spent searching for intention would soon be complete. Together they made up my everything.

For Rocco, our union symbolized something he’d yearned for: a family. Hopefully for Jemma it would mean peace after her year-long battle with breast cancer.

“Amore, go on. Ask her.” Patience wasn’t Rocco’s virtue.

“Give me a minute—”

In private, we’d talked about the day for the past few months. We’d picked out the perfect engagement ring: a Tittoni Gems of Distinction twelve-carat pink diamond, a custom-made work of art from Manhattan for Jemma. And two simple gold bands for Rocco and myself. We’d planned the vacation: a week alone on the island, getting time away. Only the three of us. This was one of Jemma’s favorite Mediterranean locals. She’d grown up there with her royal friend, Prince Massimo Tittoni, who ruled over the small country.

Having Jemma’s hand in marriage was all Rocco and I ever desired. Over the past few years, we’d loved each other as a thruple. Our special togetherness had been all her doing.

Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined an open poly relationship with one woman and another man working out. Certain jealousy and games would poison the affair, but it hadn’t tarnished our lovemaking in the least.

That is till now. Rocco yearned for more, and frankly, so did I. Especially when Prince Massimo granted the Poly Marriage Act, legalizing the rights for those who loved openly to wed.

“Dolce…we’d like to ask you something…” I got the words out. I wasn’t one to talk much. Regardless, Rocco had insisted it come from me. After all, I’d been with Jemma for almost a year before we’d met him.

My boyfriend was the well-spoken one. The one in touch with his feelings. The man who’d glued the three of us together in ways which went beyond the boundaries of sex. He was the first and only man I’d ever had sex with, and I liked it. Oh, God, I fucking loved it! I loved him.

“My amore—” Uncertainty quivered in Jemma’s voice. My left hand reached deep inside my pocket. I pulled out the diamond and held it up to her, sparkling in the sunshine, and asked, “Will you marry us?”

With a smile, Rocco’s face beamed.

Her mouth dropped open, asking, “Huh?”


 

My Review

Unconventional is the first book I’ve read by Avery Aster.  I am happy to report that I loved it.  This book had all of the elements to keep me hooked.  You’ll find love, passion, lust, moments of sadness and happiness as well as a polyamorous relationship.  Yes, there is a lot going on in this book.  This is the 4th book in the series and while I haven’t read the others, I was able to follow along and understand the characters.  Avery did a wonderful job of introducing them and providing background at the beginning of the book.

The characters in this book are lovable.  Jemma, the female protagonist has survived cancer.  She’s a business woman who loves two men.  Yes, two men who are equally delicious and unique.  So as the title of the book states, their relationship is “unconventional” but wow, just wow.  Rocco and Luigi both bring their own personalities and love into this particular relationship.

Unconventional was a quick read and one that I truly enjoyed.  I’ve read several other books that include M/M relationships in the past but this book and its unique story have made me see love in a different light.

I don’t want to spoil the book because it is too good not to read.  I highly recommend this book.

Steamy, sexy, witty and overall a delicious read.

I gave this book 4 stars!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I love to read trilogies and The Chasing Fire Trilogy immediately skyrocketed to the top of my 2015 favorite books list. You see Ann Marie and Amy created this amazing series that captivated me from the very start.  Their muse or inspiration for their male protagonist Hudson, was David Gandy.  Enough said. Wow! I’m a Gandy girl and I will tell you, he is the perfect Hudson.   Trust me, this is a series I am sure you will love.

Reclaim Me is the final book in this trilogy. This book picks up where the last book leaves you, hanging and full of angst.  Alessandra and Hudson are in France.  Harper, Allie’s best friend has flown to meet her there.  And, the arrogant French ass Julian is back with his own agenda for Allie and Hudson.

Once back in Chicago, Allie and Hudson have plenty to deal with.  Julian is making sure Allie complies with his plan.  Many revelations are made along the way.  Lets just say, life becomes more complicated for Allie and Hudson.  (no spoilers)

Allie wants to protect Hudson and Nick while Hudson wants to protect Allie.

Hudson continues to be the commanding alpha male I love so much while still showing a lighter and more humorous side.  Look out for some fun and sexy text messages along the way too. Hudson also knows how to romance his lady.  Yes, Hudson even dabbles in poetry. He will stop at nothing to show his love for Allie.

One of the reasons why I enjoyed this book so much is because all of the secondary characters stand out.  We learn more about them and ultimately love them more.  They truly play important roles in Hudson and Allie’s lives. They help to make this story complete.

Nick, Hudson’s brother is on the right track.  And, if you made the same prediction I made in Release Me, you’ll be thrilled to learn more about his personal/love life in this book.  His relationship with Hudson is stronger as well.  I loved the sibling bonding, especially a certain bow tie scene.  I’d love to read more about Nick in another book. (Please)

Collin, Allie’s assistant proves to be a great friend too.  He’s always had Allie’s back and turns out to be an invaluable and trustworthy employee as well.

Harper, the bff.  She’s sassy and full of life. I’ve always loved her and I was excited to see how her personal life unfolded as well. Let’s just say, Harper and Allie have similar taste in men.

(As an Ian Somerhalder fan, I loved the bar scene. Just saying. 🙂 )

Prepare yourself for a thrill ride through Chicago.  You’ll find adventure,  love, angst, humor, hope, romance, revelations from the past, friendship, an adorable puppy, and lots and lots of steamy sex in this final book.

Will Allie and Hudson find their happily ever after?

reclaim me teaser 1

Writing this review was bittersweet and difficult.  I didn’t want Hudson and Allie’s story to end and at the same time, I wanted to share the story with you.  But, I can’t spoil it.  You will have to get the book/series and read for yourself.  You won’t be disappointed.

I loved all of the books in this series. However, Reclaim Me is my favorite. The intensity of their love, their passion and unwavering pursuit for a happy ending makes this such a spectacular read.

So if you haven’t started this series, one click it today.  Happy reading!

 

I gave this book 5 steamy stars!

Release Day Review & Giveaway – Just One Lie by Kyra Davis @_KyraDavis

Happy Release Day to Kyra Davis!  Just One Lie is live.

Susi Reviews Just One Lie

Just One Lie Kyra Davis

 

The long-awaited follow-up novel to the runaway New York Timesbestseller Just One Night—which Publishers Weekly gave a starred review and proclaimed, “Davis skillfully creates an uplifting story in which sex is presented both as freedom and as a metaphor for power, and where raw chemistry is the clear winner over bland complacency.”

In the instant international sensation Just One Night, sensible Kasie Fitzgerald unleashed her passions—and found herself—through an explosive affair. In Just One Lie, we meet Kasie’s wild and tortured sister, whose impulsivity and lack of self-control has set off a chain of events that changes her family forever.

Melody Fitzgerald is the opposite of the “perfect” daughter. The lead singer of an indie rock band, she is impulsive and creative, with a rebellious streak that both defines her and becomes her greatest enemy. Her lover, the enticing and unpredictable Ash, shares her free spirit and penchant for trouble. On the face of it, he seems to be her perfect match.

So why is she so drawn to her soft spoken, reliable drummer, Brad Witmer? How can a man who wears polo shirts and reads the financial section of the paper be of any interest to her at all? And why on earth does someone like that appear to be so captivated by her?

Before she knows it, Melody finds herself on a path of self-discovery, passion, and affairs of the heart. But will a dark secret from her past derail it all? Or will its exposure be the very thing that unburdens her heart and allows her to seek a future with the one man who loves her completely?

My Review

Just One Lie is the third book in the series that started with Just One Night.

I’d like to start my review with this, Kyra is an amazing writer.  Her stories are brilliant.  She finds a way to make the reader think about life.  At least for me, I found myself thinking about decisions that people make and why they make them.  Her characters are unique and that is one of the reasons I enjoy reading her books.  Mercy, Ash and Brad were different and special for different reasons. Honestly, I didn’t expect this series to take me on such an emotional journey with these beloved personalities.

This story can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the entire series.  This book is Mercy (Melody’s) story.  After reading Just Once More (novella), I was excited to learn about the infamous Melody. Mercy (Melody) is Kasie’s sister. She’s the sister Kasie thought was dead.  Reading about how and why Melody was “dead” was heartbreaking.  However, reading how she battled on with life was totally worth it.

This book takes readers back to 1999.  This back in time is significant in this story. Mercy (Melody) reunites with Ash, a badboy dreamer from her past who helped contribute to her “death.” The reader gets to relive some of those tragic moments that ultimately lead to Melody becoming Mercy.  We learn the truth about her parents and trust me, you will be as upset and I was when you read that part. Mercy also meets Brad, the sweet and charming good guy hottie and drummer.  Both men stir feelings in Mercy’s heart and ultimately both men help her move on, grow, and live.  Talk about having to make a choice, Ash or Brad?

Mercy proves to be one bad ass woman.  She is strong, loving, talented and quite amazing.

The last chapters in this book were my favorite.  Mr. Dade and Kasie make their appearance in this book and I found those moments welcoming and they completed Mercy’s life.

Brad and June are back too.  But, you’ll have to read the book to find out about them. (my favorite moments)

Kyra, this book was awesome.  You stirred all of my emotions along the way.  You made me think, made me cry, upset me and ultimately, made me smile.  Your steamy scenes are also… Whoa…. Kyra can write sex!

I want to say so much more in this review but will keep it spoiler free for the readers.

I highly recommend this book, this series to all.  Kyra will quickly become one of your favorite authors.

I gave this book 5 stars!
