About LISTEN TO ME:

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

Review: Kiss The Flame by Christopher Rice

Kiss the Flame - Review & Excerpt Tour Banner

 

We are so excited to bring you the Review & Excerpt Tour for KISS THE FLAME by Christopher Rice!! KISS THE FLAME is a standalone novella that combines the worlds of THE FLAME and his novel THE SURRENDER GATE, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights.

Kiss the Flame - Cover

Amazon eBook ** Amazon Paperback

 

Portrait of beautiful blond girl with glowing candle in hands on dark background, praying on Christmas time, traditional Christian holiday

About KISS THE FLAME:

In a standalone novella that combines the worlds of THE FLAME and his novel, THE SURRENDER GATE, New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice returns you to a mysterious candle shop in the New Orleans French Quarter where the scents of passion provide the courage to embrace your heart’s desire.

Are some risks worth taking?

Laney Foley is the first woman from her hard working family to attend college. That’s why she can’t act on her powerful attraction to one of the gorgeous teaching assistants in her Introduction to Art History course. Getting involved with a man who has control over her final grade is just too risky. But ever since he first laid eyes on her, Michael Brouchard seems to think about little else but the two of them together. And it’s become harder for Laney to ignore his intelligence and his charm.

During a walk through the French Quarter, an intoxicating scent that reminds Laney of her not-so-secret admirer draws her into an elegant scented candle shop. The shop’s charming and mysterious owner seems to have stepped out of another time, and he offers Laney a gift that could break down the walls of her fear in a way that can only be described as magic. But will she accept it?

Light this flame at the scene of your greatest passion and all your desires will be yours…

Lilliane Williams is a radiant, a supernatural being with the power to make your deepest sexual fantasy take shape around you with just a gentle press of her lips to yours. But her gifts came at a price. Decades ago, she set foot inside what she thought was an ordinary scented candle shop in the French Quarter. When she resisted the magical gift offered to her inside, Lilliane was endowed with eternal youth and startling supernatural powers, but the ability to experience and receive romantic love was removed from her forever. When Lilliane meets a young woman who seems poised to make the same mistake she did years before, she becomes determined to stop her, but that will mean revealing her truth to a stranger. Will Lilliane’s story provide Laney with the courage she needs to open her heart to the kind of true love only magic can reveal?

 

 

 Review:

Laney has always been attracted to her Art History teaching assistant, Michael.  Though she longed for him she didn’t think he would ever look at her twice.  That is until the day after a confrontation in class with another student prompted him to ask her out.  Laney has reservations about this but decides to take a chance.  But, fear holds her back from going very far with him.  This leads her to the mysterious candle shop where she will meet two very strange people who will change her world forever.

This is my first Christopher Rice story.  This will not be my last.  I have totally fallen for his writing.  I loved that in such a small story he could draw us into the characters lives and gave us a little taste of characters connected to some of his other books.  I loved Laney and Michael’s love story.  It brought in a sense of realism that many people could relate too.  In such a short story, Christopher Rice manages to masterfully intertwine romance, eroticism and paranormal.  In this one story I can see why he is so successful.  If you are a fan of paranormal, romance and steamy sex scenes you need to pick up this story.  I know I will be going out and picking up more Christopher Rice books ASAP.

Triple Review: Catch Me, Play Me and Dare Me by Jennifer Probst

Happy Sunday!  I have a great treat for you today.  I have a triple review.  I am reviewing three of the four novellas in Jennifer Probst’s Steele Brothers series.  These three stories exude sex, love and BDSM in an entertaining and thoroughly panty melting way.  For all of my reviews be sure to keep reading after the book blurbs.  Have a great Sunday!

CatchMe(Final)Book Blurb:

Rick Steele has avoided relationships since he caught his fiancée cheating, but when his friend refers him to the exclusive agency, FANTA-C to experience the night of his dreams, he’s not prepared for his emotional and physical reaction to his date. Tara shows him a raw passion and honesty he’s never encountered. For the first time, Rick wants more than one night, but he needs to catch her first…

Tara Denton escaped a brutal past and needs one night with a stranger to get beyond her sexual and emotional limitations. On the brink of recovering her strength and independence, she wants nothing to do with a relationship. But Rick Steele does more than rock her body…he rocks her heart. Tara has to make a choice, but is she ready to get caught?

Review:

Rick has avoided any kind of real relationship since coming to Las Vegas.  When his friend suggests he use an exclusive service called Fanta-C he is skeptical.  When he meets Tara and realizes she needs his dominance to help her get past her limitations due to the brutality that she has experienced.  Through his dominance, Tara experiences a sensuality, safety and love that she has never experienced.  Rick realizes he doesn’t want this to be just one night, but Tara isn’t ready for more.  Will Rick be able to convince her she needs him as much as he needs her or will she keep running?

I really enjoyed this story.  It was entertaining with some very steamy and sexually exciting scenes.  It has a lot of the BDSM in there but it shows you one side to that sexual lifestyle.  Along with the sex is a great story of love and connection that any woman would want to have.  I recommend this book for anyone looking for a good story with a panty-melting edge.

PLAYMe(Final)Book Blurb:

Professional gambler Sloane Keller is tired of dating weak willed men and longs to meet a man who challenges her dominant personality and forces her to submit. As the Queen of Cards, she’s used to making her own rules and craves the excitement of Vegas. But her inner heart cries out for someone who can be her match, both inside the casino and in the bedroom.

As the new dealer in town, Roman Steele is burnt out on women looking for a quick penny and a man to follow. He craves a woman with fire in her soul and a keen intellect who can challenge him. When his brother recruits Madame Eve to help, Rome is amazed at the complicated woman he gets to spend the night with. But when the evening is over, will she be gutsy enough to offer him forever?

Review:

Sloane has never been able to find a man to meet her needs.  She just wants to be able to let go of her power.  Rome sees Sloane and realizes she is all he has ever wanted.  A woman to dominate with needs to let go of the strength she constantly has to have.  With Fanta-C they meet for their one night of sexual expression.  Sloane is unsure whether she wants more than one night.  Rome makes it his mission to convince her that she needs him dominate her to free her.

I loved Rome.  He is strong and knows and loves a strong woman.  Sloane is a fantastic character.  She is a wonderful example of a strong independent woman who threatens men because of her strength.  With her and Rome they set fire to the sheets and their love story is one that I personally loved the most.  With the BDSM component used in a different way from Rick’s story it really shows how different expressions of love and sex can change a person’s life.

DAREMe(Final)Book Blurb:

As a military leader back from the war, and the youngest of his two dominant older brothers, Rafe Steele struggles with a secret. He craves surrender in the bedroom under the controlled hands of a Dominatrix. When his brothers offer him an experience through the exclusive agency, FANTA-C, he jumps at the chance to experience one perfect night. After one experiment, he’s sure he’ll be able to move on. But he never counted on Summer Preston to strip down his walls and make him want more so much more…

An elementary school teacher with a girl next door, fresh face, Summer is constantly barraged by men who want to take care of her, but she longs to meet a strong man who can handle her dominant ways in the bedroom. Trapped in her own storybook life, she books a one-night stand to finally experience her fantasy. But she never counted on Rafe Steele to push her boundaries in both the bedroom…and her heart

Review:

Rafe has always been in charge.  But, unlike his brothers he has secretly always wanted to be dominated in the bedroom.  When Rafe is set up with Summer by Fanta-C he is a little skeptical.  She looks too innocent to be a Dominatrix.  That is until he meets her at her room.  Summer rocks his world.  Though Rafe and Summer have a hot and world changing night he is unable to accept what he wants and is very afraid of what his brothers might think.  Unfortunately, that is not good enough for Summer.  Rafe must decide whether he wants to follow his heart or hide behind his fears.

I enjoyed Rafe’s story.  It was a unique twist.  It really brought a different aspect of BDSM.  With Rafe being the Sub and Summer being the Dom was an interesting view point.  I really enjoyed the different perspectives and it was sexy and entertaining.  Rafe’s dilemma of being honest with himself and his brothers was one that I think could be relatable to many people.  I think after reading about Rome and Rick, Rafe’s story was refreshing and steamy.  Jennifer Probst has done a fantastic job with her Steele Brothers series.  With her strong alphas and sexy fems, women and men who read these stories will fall hard and definitely find the BDSM aspects intriguing.  I know I want to run out and get a pair of handcuffs today 🙂

I Do (If Only #3) by AJ Pine

Happy Saturday!  Today I am bringing to you a very sweet and sexy story.  I Do by AJ Pine is the third book in her If Only series. All of these books can be read as standalones.  You will love the multiple stories of the four couples featured.  It will give you faith in love that can overcome almost anything.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  I hope you are having a wonderful and enjoyable weekend.

IDo_Final CoverBook Blurb:

Sometimes you have to trust your heart to find out what home really means.

Duncan McAllister is marrying Elaina Tripoli tomorrow. Except–he’s missing. Jordan, Noah, Griffin, Maggie, and Miles arrive in Greece for the festivities to find frantic messages from both the bride and groom. Noah and Griffin set off to find Duncan while Jordan, Maggie, and Miles try to salvage what should be a day of celebration before the wedding.

But the Americans have their own baggage. Noah’s got a surprise planned for Jordan that has to go perfectly. Griffin’s keeping life-changing news from Maggie. And Miles–well, he wasn’t looking for love on this trip until a Greek sous chef named Alex rocks his world.

The race is on for Duncan to make it back to Elaina before she decides not to take him back at all. For Noah to make sure his monumental plan goes off without a hitch. For Griffin to tell Maggie the truth without losing her. For Miles to admit that letting himself fall in love is worth the risk.

Happily Ever After waits at the finish line…if the four couples can make it on time.

Review:

Duncan is marrying Elaina.  Noah has a surprise for Jordan after their best friends get married.  Griffin has important news to tell Maggie.  Miles meets a very sexy man on the flight where he is an uncomfortable fifth wheel.  What can happen will happen when this is supposed to the happiest times in their lives.  Can their love over come these hurdles or will things end tragically?

I really liked this story.  I don’t normally like to read a series out of order, but this book was an excellent standalone that makes me want to go back and read about Noah and Jordan’s beginning and Griffin and Maggie’s start also.  This love story really was a bit of a story with a comedy of errors mixed in.  From Duncan’s airport mishap to Noah’s spoiled surprise to Griffin’s important news coming out at an inconvenient time.  These all made them very relatable and made you love them even more when they made up for it.  I also, liked the women.  They are all strong with a fantastic love for their men that shines through all they do even when they are mad at them.  I truly felt this was a realistic love story for all involved.  It was touching and brought a lot of issues that most couples have into a story where happily ever after is obtainable.  I would totally recommend this book for all who want a great love story.

Happy Release Day: The Play by Karina Halle

A troubled Scottish rugby player who doesn’t play by the rules.
A vivacious man-eater who’s given up on love.
When it comes to Lachlan and Kayla, opposites don’t just attract – they explode.

Kayla Moore has always been comfortable with her feisty, maneating reputation. At least it was fine until she hit her thirties and saw her best friends Stephanie and Nicola settle down with Linden and Bram McGregor, leaving Kayla to be the odd one out. Tired of being the third wheel with nothing but one-night stands and dead-end dates in San Francisco, Kayla decides to take a vow of celibacy and put men on the backburner.

That is until she lays her eyes on Linden and Bram’s cousin, hot Scot Lachlan McGregor. Lachlan is her sexual fantasy come to life – tall, tatted, and built like a Mack truck. With a steely gaze and successful rugby career back in Edinburgh, he’s the kind of man that makes her want to throw her vow right out the window. But Lachlan’s quiet and intense demeanor makes him a hard man to get to know, let alone get close to.

It isn’t until the two of them are thrown together one long, unforgettable night that Kayla realizes there is so much more to this brooding macho man than what meets the eye. But even with sparks flying between the two, Lachlan can’t stay in America forever. Now, Kayla has to decide whether to uproot her whole life and chance it all on someone she barely knows or risk getting burned once again.
Sometimes love is a game that just needs to be played.
