Review [Captivated] (Crossfire #4) by Sylvia Day


















Title: Captivated By You (Crossfire #4)

Author: Sylvia Day


Reviewer: Juewelz



After what felt like forever in book years, we finally got our Gideon back. I was so excited to read Captivated by You because we were told the story will continue and focus on Gideon and his issues/past. As much as I like Eva as a heroine I was getting tired of her.

What I like about this book:
I loved that Captivated by You just like the other books in the Crossfire series picks up right where Entwined left off. This series is so easy to follow. I dont feel like I need to read the previous books fully to catch up since things continue so smoothly. I was able to read the last few chapters of Entwined to get caught up. The angst, hottness and drama that we crave in the Crossfire series is turnt all the way up in Captiv … Read more

Review: [Strictly Temporary, Vol. 1] by Ella Fox
















Title: Strictly Temporary, Vol. 1

Author: Ella Fox


Reviewer: Midian




Why, hello, Exton.

You guys, something you can always count on is; if the book is by Ella Fox, is going to be HOT AS FUCK.
I can’t even tell you how much I loved Exton, the guy is awesome.
And while the heroine was not my cup of tea (and this is not news, seriously) I liked the story enough that I didn’t care about the things that annoyed me about her.
The story.
At the beginning, I felt kind of homicidal, because what was done to Fulana was, simply put, horrible. What annoyed me is that, she kept pushing Exton away because of her past experiences. And let me just clarify this, this particular scenario annoys me every time, not just in this book, because I’ve read this before, you know, something bad happens to one of the characters and they start measuring everybody else with the same ruler, and I hate that, I will always hate that, because not everybody is the same.
What happened to Exton was horrible too, but he chose to move on from it. Does he trust everybody? No. But he won’t let that affect his future, and that is something he is trying to get through Fulana’s stubborn ass head, godammit.
The steam factor, as I mentioned before, is off the charts, because this is an Ella Fox book, she can make a nun do hot shit.
I can’t wait to read the next installment in the series because this were shit will hit the fan and I’m dying to know how our heroine is going to handle that, because it will determine if I will hate her guts or like her lol.

About Strictly Temporary

Just a Small Towne girl…

Raised on fairytales and dreams of true love, Arden Winger left for college with a smile on her face and a happy, hopeful heart. Fast-forward seven years and that small town is behind her, but not the baggage she’s been carrying since she left.

Just a city boy…

It’s not that Exton Alexander had anything against relationships—he just never had the desire to try. Not necessarily jaded, Exton considered himself a realist. Little did he know, the one woman that would change everything was about to rock his world. This Alpha male knows the second he lays eyes on her that Arden is special– now he just has to work past her defenses.

Strictly Temporary is Volume One. Volume Two will arrive in February. Arden & Exton’s story will be resolved in book two- but the temporary series will continue after that with different characters.


#SmutBookFridays Review [The King] (The Original Sinners #6) by Tiffany Reisz

The King

TITLE:  The King (The Original Sinners #6)

AUTHOR:  Tiffany Reisz

RATING: lips20pxlips20pxlips20pxlips20px 1/2



VIVE LE ROI! Long live the king.

The King is the 6th overall book in the Original Sinners series and the 2nd book in the prequel series The White Years, and this one is all about the King of Kink, Kingsley Edge, long may he reign.

“He saw a building, old, gothic, crumbling, like he was- awaiting a rebirth. And people filed into it with secrets. They needed him, they needed his protection, needed his knowledge. They needed to kneel. They needed a King. He heard their cries of ecstasy, saw their hunger and devotion. He would take them all and give them to one more worthy. He’d never seen anything so beautiful in his life. A promise made long ago…a promise he would keep. A King must have a kingdom after all.”

The King follows roughly the same timeline as The Saint and we are introduced to our infamous king at a time before he has acquired his kingdom. Søren has just re-entered his life with a special request. He needs King’s help but his help is not without a price, and this time Kingsley is not going to let the man he loves slip away from him again like he did all those years ago. When Søren shows up at Kinglsey’s house it’s … Read more

Title:  Spend the Night: The Hotel Collection Episode #1

Author:  Elizabeth Lee


Reviewer: Nic



Nic’s Take:  I am going to make this quick since this released early and I haven’t had that much time to work on reviews.  This book was fantastic.  It was thrilling, sexy, fun, easy to read, and had me wanting more.  I love serials for the most part and when I saw that one of my fave authors was writing one I was definitely excited.  I think the one thing that is truly different about this one is that we get two point of views in the book but one is of the main character Hannah, and the other is just “Him.”  You might ask, who is “Him?”  Well, guess what, you don’t really know.  We do get some clues that have me thinking it is either one of two characters in the book but still not really sure.  Knowing Elizabeth, she could totally rock our world and it end up being neither of the ones that I think it will be.  Anyway, I think everyone should go get this book today and give it a go.  The next episode is planned for early Feb.  I want every one of you reeling in anticipation over what happens next with me!  ;-)

Happy Reading Peeps!

Review [The Importance of Being Alice] (Ainslie Brothers #1) by Katie MacAlister

The Importance of Being Alice (Ainslie Brothers, #1)

Book Title: The Importance of Being Alice (Ainslie Brothers #1)
Author: Katie MacAlister
Rating:  1/2
Reviewer: Jenn






What a fun, light read!

The Importance of Being Alice centers around Alice Wood and Elliott Ainslie, two strangers sharing a suite on a European river cruise. Alice has just been dumped by Patrick, the man she was planning to take the trip with and marry. Now she’s decided to pick up the pieces and enjoy the trip, even if she’s doing it alone. Elliott is an up-tight English Baron with a very large overbearing family, and when Patrick calls to give him his ticket for the cruise Elliott accepts thinking it will be an escape from his family so he can get some work done. Neither expects to find the other as they start their journey but it may be the best thing to happen to them both.

I really enjoyed the dual POV’s of the story and really found myself liking Elliott. He is wound so tight and seems completely consumed by work and family duties, but once he starts letting Alice in, he really becomes a wonderful character. Alice is definitely the very opposite of Elliott; she’s spontaneous and adventurous and she’s definitely a lot quirky!

Their story was fun, with some unexpected surprises for the two of them. It was definitely an enjoyable read with quirky characters, fabulous and witty banter, good chemistry and even kinky sex clubs.

I look forward to reading more from Katie MacAlister when I’m in the mood for light, fun characters to make me smile.

I was provided with a complimentary copy for review for SMIBookClub.

Cover JacketRBK Book Cover Final (11.89 x 8.5) Synopsis Her name is Emery Shaw…Emily Sanders…Emma Simpson…Ericka Smith.
Her family was well off, she ran. They looked for her, she hid. They found her, she ran again. Tragedy strikes, she gets even.
The fact is, she doesn’t know who she is, she tried to run, to hide and make a life for herself, but that backfired. No one knows her except her best friend Rachel, if that’s even an adequate word for what they are to each other. Rachel helps her build a life for herself below the radar, which is fine until the unthinkable happens knocking Em out of her unfeeling cocoon. When her house of cards comes tumbling down she runs again, until the one person who can change her mind finds her.
Due to adult situations, language and possible scenarios that may be difficult for some readers to handle, take a breath before you start this one. It’s gritty and not pretty. Nothing is pretty here. Whiskey is a good thing.

Falling Away – Chapter 9 Excerpt

“Jax, I can’t,” she breathed, placing her hands on my chest. “I . . . ,” she stammered, “I don’t exactly dislike you anymore, but this isn’t a good idea. As much as I’d like to give in, I can’t be that girl.”
“What girl?”
She stared at me. “A one-night stand.”
My fists tightened around her shirt. So that was what she thought I wanted?
My voice hardened. “What makes you think you’d be a one-night stand?”
“Because you’re Jared Trent’s brother. Because you’re young. Why would you want more?” she asked, her tone light. “I’m not trying to be prissy, okay? You get to me. I like the way you feel. I’m just not ready for this.” Her lips pursed, and she started to rise, but I pulled her back down.
“Ready for what?” I bit out, getting seriously fucking annoyed at her assumptions and the fact that she compared me to Jared. Two minutes ago she’d had her arms and legs wrapped around me.
Her eyebrows shot up, challenging me. “This,” she spat out, and dug into my pocket, pulling out my knife. “It’s been digging into the back of my thigh since I sat down. Why do you have so many computers? Why do the cops let you get away with anything? What do you do to make a living? And why do you carry a knife, Jax?”
My chest filled with delight at her anger. She was getting ballsier by the minute.
I shot her a smirk. “Because it’s quiet.”
And I almost laughed at her arched eyebrow. She was asking why I carried a knife, and I just answered why I carried a knife instead of a gun.
She averted her eyes, but I caught the annoyed expression as she raised the knife up to her face, studying it. She hit the button, and the blade shot out right between us.
I had only a moment to wonder what the hell she was doing before I reared back, seeing her jab the knife into my space.
“You think you scare me, don’t you?” she taunted, holding the blade to my neck, playing with me.
I sucked in a few quick breaths and let out a startled laugh as my heart slammed against my ribs. Well, this was new.
I swallowed, meeting her triumphant little smile and leaning into the blade, feeling the sharp, cool steel bite into my neck. “You want to play? You don’t know how to play my games, Juliet.”
And I snatched the knife out of her scarred hand and brought it down to the hem of her shirt, slicing it up the middle.
“Jax!” she screamed, fumbling with her now useless T-shirt as I threw the blade onto the floor. “What are you doing?”
Grabbing her around the waist, I stood up, whipped her around, and planted her in front of the window looking down onto the backyard full of partiers.
I wrapped my arms around her shaking body and growled into her ear from behind her, “God, Juliet. You think I just wanna fuck? You think I wanna keep myself hidden and mysterious, because it’s my play to get women into bed? Huh?” I pressed. “No, baby. I could fuck ten different girls tonight if I wanted to. I don’t want to do that.”
Her chest shook, and she squirmed against me, probably scared that we could be seen out the window.
“So, what do you want?” she cried. “If not a one-night stand?”
I closed my burning eyes, and buried my lips in her hair. “I want to terrorize you,” I confessed. “I want to cut you without drawing blood. I want to break you.” I pulled her into me. “And then I want to fuck you.”
From the moment I laid eyes on her I had wanted to break her out of her shell. I wanted to see her undone, and I wanted to take her over. For how long, I didn’t know, but I knew it would be for more than one night.
I also knew it wouldn’t be forever.
Her breathing slowed, and she stilled, staring out the window. I straightened behind her and peeled off the T-shirt she was holding closed.
“Jax,” she whimpered, turning her face to me. “They can see us.”
Reaching around, I turned her chin back toward the window. “They can’t see you. The window’s tinted.” The shirt, sliced up the front, fell down her arms and spilled to the floor. “But you can see them, Juliet,” I pointed out, gently running my hands up her bare arms. “They drink, they laugh, they have meaningless conversations about what’s trending on Twitter.” I paused and dug my fingers into her hips, pulling her ass into me and breathing into her ear, “And I’m so jacked up I want you so bad.”

Review [Raze] by Tillie Cole



Title: Raze

Author: Tillie Cole



amazon AddtoGoodreads

AHHHHHHHHH!!! why did it end. I want more.

you know when you see a book and you know it will be good? well how about when you know a book will blow your mind? Tilie Cole has done for me.
Every since i read “ It Ain’t Me Babe” this lady has quickly jumped into my favorite authors list. Her stories don’t just captivate you but they truly break and heal your heart back together.

Raze Teaser 3
I initially thought this was going to be really dark boo and hello I’m all for the dark reads…lol but it turned out to be so much more. Its one of those books you will finish in one sitting… or like me at 5 in the morning type. I seriously couldn’t put it down. i kept telling myself that i would finish the next day but my heart did not want to leave my broken man Luka aka Raze.

Raze Teaser 1
Raze and Kisa are meant to be with each-other but Jealousy, hatred, and power has driven them apart. Kisa and Raze have know each-other since they were babies. there is something that set them apart. they are soul mates. they experienced first love, first kiss and a lot of other firsts. But jealousy of others drive them apart.

Raze, is such a strong minded person yet he is so broken. I tend to fall in love with broken men but I just feel so strong feeling about Raze. I believe it’s his will to live that just made me fall in love with him. Everything he overcame not just for Revenge but for Freedom.

Raze Teaser 2

Kisa, she is just a fighter. I loved her. Then come the asshole of and crazy ass Alik. i just wanted to kill him myself. This man was truly sick. Like put him out type of sick. i hated him with a passion.

Alik and Raze were somewhat alike in a lot of things yet so different in so many levels. Raze is just an amazing individual while Alik is a sick bastard.
Every time I see Tillie writing another it makes my heart hurt in a good way of course. because i know she will destroy me with how amazing her books are.

i would to ally love a novella about Kisa and Luka. These two characters have made their way into my heart.

Anyone looking for something different… something that will thrill you, break you, heal you, make you fall in love… this is the book you need to read. This is not just a fighter book… this book is about true love, about soul mates, and happiness.
Absoultely recommend this book and Tillie Coles other books.

Heartlines Synopsis:

front onlyHeartlines is not a standalone book. It is only meant to be read after first reading Thirty Seconds To Die and Terrible Lies.

Sometimes in battle surrender is the strongest move of all.

Release Day Blast & Giveaway [A Necessary Sin] by Georgia Cates


We would love for you to join us in celebrating the release of A Necessary Sin by Georgia Cates!


Title: A Necessary Sin (Book 1 of The Sin Trilogy)
Author: Georgia Cates
Release Date: December 29, 2014


Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, an organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge’s son Sinclair—until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She’s always known this undertaking would place her life in danger—she never imagined her heart would be as well.


Sinclair Breckenridge’s POV:

“I’m in the business of boundaries and limits. I’m aware of what mine are and how far I’m willing to go to get my job accomplished. It can include lying and sometimes stealing.” I wait a moment for driving the last nail into the coffin. “And perhaps the occasional killing.” “How do you feel when you do those things?” “Powerful.” I purposely choose that word because it’s the one she used to describe how she felt when she brought Duff to his knees. I want her to see just how similar we are. She watches out the window for a minute before speaking again. “Do you like the way it feels?” I can’t lie. I get a high from it. “Very much.” Another minute passes. “Okay.” What? “Just … okay?” “Would you like me to be horrified?” she asks. “I can do that if it would make you feel better or improve your opinion of me.” She’s no fucking Pollyanna. So I guess there’s no reason for her to pretend to be. “No. Okay works for me.” I’m not sure if I should be disturbed by her lack of appall. It feels like a double standard to be shocked by an absence of dismay. My God, has the pot met the kettle? “I wish I could get inside your head.” “No, you don’t,” she says. “My mind is a dark place to be.” I think I may have met the perfect woman. In her eyes, I’m not a monster at all.
