Review: Dating Trilogy by Alexandra Bishop

THE DATING TRILOGY is finally COMPLETE! Read the entire series from beginning to end now!

 

About DATING IN THE DARK

Call center girl by day and…this is the part where I say I do something super mysterious and exotic by night. Yeah not so much.

With the big 3-0 looming its ugly head around the corner my best friend and my married and very pregnant sister have decided that I need a life. One that includes the opposite sex. Or else continue on, and become the old spinster they say I am.

It was all in jest until they set me up with a blind date. Literally.

Speed dating. In the dark. With a stranger. What were they thinking?

Fifteen minutes, that’s all you get to find the man of your dreams. Oh yeah, that’ll go over about as well as a nun in a strip club.

Playing along might not be so bad. Besides, what’s the worst that could happen? It’s not like I’ll actually end up falling in love.

Review:

What can go wrong with speed dating in the dark?  A lot actually.  Tinley is a lowly call center girl by day and a lonely woman at night.  When her friends sign her up for a dating in the dark event she doesn’t have high hopes.  Her assumption is correct until her final date of the evening.  She doesn’t expect the fireworks or the connection in a 15 min conversation.  When she finally meets her speed dating prince charming she is floored and cannot believe who it is.  As she opens her heart to him, she soon realizes she doesn’t know him at all and he can break her heart with one action.

I really enjoyed this book.  I was a bit skeptical of the premise but as I got into the story I really started to love Tinley and Marek.  She is relatable in her insecurity and he is the epitome of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.  Their love story was fun and full of drama.  As their story deepens so do the chances they take.  When one mistake will alter their lives forever so will the one secret he is keeping.  Alexandria Bishop does a top notch job in drawing in the reader with her first book in this trilogy.

About SINKING IN THE SHADOWS

The Dating Trilogy continues with Sinking in the Shadows…

She wasn’t looking for love.
She wasn’t looking for a happily ever after.
But Dating in the Dark gave her both.

Or so she thought.

Now with a broken heart and an unexpected surprise she doesn’t know if she’ll ever find her way back to both again.

Sinking in the Shadows is the second book in The Dating Trilogy and should be read after Dating in the Dark. Tinley and Marek’s story concludes in Loving in the Light.

Review:

Tinley is heartbroken.  Marek lied and now it was over. She knew things with him were too good to be true.  Who really finds love at a speed dating event? When love is at stake is it really over when the other person won’t let go?  Can Tinley find her way back to him even while she is harboring her own secret?

In this second installment of this addictive trilogy, we find Tinley heartbroken over Marek’s lie.  She is hiding her own secret that she can only tell her sister.  As she tries to move on, she can’t help but cling to the idea of Marek.  Tinley is still such a relatable character.  Every woman has questioned herself because a loved one has let them down or hurt them.  She realizes what she really wants in her life and what she has to do to get there.  We are left wondering will they get their happily ever after or will life crumble all around them.

About LOVING IN THE LIGHT

The Dating Trilogy concludes with Loving in the Light…

He came into her life when she least expected it. Stopping her from watching her life pass her by to loving every minute of it.

She got everything she didn’t know she wanted but now it’s all being threatened.

Now she’s left in a world of uncertainty with more questions than answers.

Loving in the Light is the third and final book in The Dating Trilogy. It should be read after Dating in the Dark and Sinking in the Shadows.

Review:

Marek has become so important to Tinley she doesn’t know if she can ever live without him.  As she faces that possibility, she must do everything she can to keep herself and those around her together.  Can Tinley and Marek finally have their HEA?  Or will the world have another plan and separate them forever?

This was a great ending to this trilogy.  All of the questions are answered and everything you want to know is put into this final book.  Tinley and Marek’s story concludes the way it began on a sweet and dramatic way.  I am hoping that another book with Marek’s sister, Giselle, will be headed our way or with Tinley’s best friend, Dakota.  There is a lot more to this group of people then we have seen.  If my previous reviews, have enticed you then you need to pick this trilogy up today.  Believe me, when you pick up the first book you won’t want to put it down until you’ve read the final page of the third book.

Review: Sinful Empire by Meghan March

The Mount Trilogy concludes with Sinful Empire!

What’s mine, I keep, and that includes Keira Kilgore.

It’s no longer enough to have her in my debt. No longer enough to own her body.

I want something more.

She can try to resist, but I’ll never give her up.

Nothing will keep us apart.

Not her. Not my enemies. No one.

Her debt will only be paid one way—with her heart.

Sinful Empire is the third and final book in the Mount Trilogy.

Review:

Lachlan knows Kiera is his.  But, when someone tries to take away what is his permanently he can’t deal with it.  Losing her is not an option.  Though being honest with her will be one of the most challenging things he has ever done.  Kiera knows she is falling for the one man she swore not to tolerate.  But when her life is on the line who will save her in the end?  Will they be able to love one another or will they finally combust?

This was a terrific ending to this trilogy.  Kiera and Lachlan finally find their stride.  They have both learned to bend toward each other and accept the feelings they have for one another.  Nothing pushes that better than a good near tragic end.  Through this book you really feel the suspense.  Knowing something is coming but not knowing when or how.  This was probably one of the best page turners Meghan March has written.  It was hands down the best of the three books.  Which is saying something because this trilogy was sexy and suspenseful all throughout the course of the trilogy.  Overall, this was a fantastic story, book and trilogy.  I hope you all will run to pick up Meghan March’s Mount trilogy.  I can’t wait to see what is coming next with Meghan March.

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

New Orleans belongs to me.
You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t.
My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met.
I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt.
To have her in my debt.
She doesn’t know she caught my attention.
She should’ve been more careful.
I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her.
It’s time to collect what I’m owed.
Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount.

The Mount Trilogy continues with

Defiant Queen…

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .

 

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira’s story concludes in Sinful Empire.

About For 100 Nights:

Avery Ross is living a dream. After struggling all of her life to make ends meet, a chance meeting with a powerful, darkly handsome man has catapulted her into a dazzling new world of penthouse luxury, elegant parties, and a wild, consuming passion with her billionaire lover, Dominic Baine. Nothing is out of his reach in business or in pleasure, yet the only woman he wants is her. Nick sweeps her to sensual heights she has never dared explore, commanding her body the same way he commands her heart. Yet Avery knows the fantasy she’s living cannot last.

 

With dark secrets and a dangerous enemy haunting her past, Avery must find a way to trust Nick with the truth before it destroys everything they share. But Nick is harboring secrets of his own as well. And when they come to light, Avery will be forced to decide if the love she feels for Nick is strong enough to endure a betrayal she may never be able to forgive.

Don’t miss the bestselling first book in the series, FOR 100 DAYS – available now!

Review:

Just when Avery feels her life is coming together with Nick her past comes roaring back.  Her love affair with him so far has been dominated by her choices.  But, when her past threatens her future with Nick she must make decisions without him knowing.  Can Avery find a way to trust Nick while protecting him?  Or will betrayal shatter their love and forever change the two of them?

I loved this book.  It was swift and passionate.  Nick and Avery’s characters really have a lot of added depth in this follow up to 100 days.  Avery’s life has changed irrevocably.  With that her boundaries are tested.  Though she loves Nick she also fears what he doesn’t know about her.  The twists and cliffhangers in this book are abundant but that just makes you want to turn the pages even faster to find out what happens next.  This book can be read without reading For 100 Days, but I would recommend reading that first.  It will give you a basis on where the characters were before this book.  If you are a Lara Adrian fan, you will love this book.  I have previously read her Midnight Breeds series, but with this series I have truly saw the immense talent Lara Adrian has.  You will not regret picking up this sensual sequel.

Review: For 100 Days by Lara Adrian

Happy Sunday!  Today I am bringing to you an erotic contemporary romance that is perfect to start for a Valentines day treat.  For my full review keep reading.  Keep an eye open this week.  I have lots of awesome reviews and Valentine’s day treats coming up!

30038074Book Blurb:

Pleasure has a price . . .

Just when everything in my life is falling apart, I find a chance to turn it around–to step into someone else’s glittering world, if only for a little while. I become someone new, no longer the woman defined by an ugly past, but a woman freer and bolder than myself. A woman who isn’t afraid to explore every passion, even at its darkest, with a mysterious and seductive man who believes my mask is real.

Handsome and commanding, enigmatic and irresistible, billionaire Dominic Baine is an obsession I cannot afford and should not risk. He ushers me into consuming new pleasures and addicting new desires, until the line between my real life and the fantasy one I’ve stolen with him begins to blur.

I know I cannot keep my truth from him. I know my past will not stay buried forever. But before I can make it right, everything comes crashing down. I have deceived this powerful, dangerous man . . . and now there is a price to be paid.

Review:

Just when Avery’s life is falling apart an opportunity falls in her lap.  What she doesn’t expect is to literally run into one of the hottest men she’s ever met.  Dominic Baine is used to getting anything he wants whenever he wants.  All he wants is Avery and her trust for him to provide all the pleasure she wants.  What she doesn’t count on is the price that pleasure will cost her.  Can she handle all that he wants or will she hold back everything to protect her heart?

I have read Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series so I am familiar with her writing and storytelling ability.  What I didn’t know was that she is a fantastic contemporary erotic romance writer.  Avery and Nick are incredibly complex and interesting characters.  Their sexual attraction is felt through all the pages.  The reader will fall head over heels in this book.  The pages will burn up with the steamy scenes.  The splash of intrigue and deception within this book adds a wonderful depth to what could have been a strictly sex filled book.  Overall, I loved the story and its characters.  Everyone reading this will want to fall right into Nick’s bed and never leave.

Review: Real Good Man by Meghan March

rgmbanner

 

real-good-man-amazonFrom USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new duet. We’ve all had the bad boys, now it’s time for a Real Good Man.

Fall for a woman over text messages? No way in hell.

Reality can never be as good at the fantasy, right?

Wrong. It’s better.

Banner Regent is smart, funny, and she’s so far out of my league, she might as well be royalty.

I’m a mechanic from Kentucky. She’s a New York City party girl.

We were never supposed to meet, but one text started something neither of us saw coming.

How do you seduce the woman who already has everything?

Show her what it’s like to be with a real good man.

Real Good Man is book one of the Real Duet. Logan and Banner’s story will conclude in Real Good Love, releasing January 17, 2017.

Review:

Who knew a text from her best friend from a number she didn’t know would lead Banner to a good man?  Banner is used to New York City men.  She has yet to meet a good man that was also a New York City man.  She has been texting Logan since her friend texted her from his phone.  When Logan agrees to meet her when he visits New York their relationship changes.  But when Banner needs a change and happens to move to where the one good man she’s met lives will she be able to change her way of thinking about relationships and learn that the good man she has is the best man for her?

I LOVED this book.  The title of this book is deceiving.  Though Logan is a good man he is also an alpha in all the sexy ways.  Banner is the perfect match for Logan.  Even if Banner is the epitome of a city girl her feelings for Logan really surprise her and her view of all of her relationships.  As the story moves along so do the characters.  They move and grow with the story which is incredibly important with a story like this.  Not to mention the sex scenes are steamy.  Logan is definitely good in all the right ways.  He will be in your dreams way after you’ve finished this story.  I can’t wait for the rest of Banner and Logan’s story.  If its anything like this one it will be sexy, steamy and fun.  Meghan March has done it again.

rgm-teaser-11

Excerpt:

Finally, fifteen minutes after we said we’d meet, Logan Brantley walks into the tapas bar. Every curse word known to woman—and several I make up on the fly—flash through my brain.

This isn’t fair. Logan Brantley is even sexier when he’s not dressed in camo and carrying a big gun. More than one head swings in his direction. Women flip their hair and uncross and re-cross their legs as he steps up to the hostess stand.

A shaft of possessiveness lights up inside me, right along with nervous energy and my pounding heart. Back off, bitches. He’s not here for you.

I hear the low rumble of his deep drawl when he speaks to the hostess. She gestures in my direction, and he turns. Piercing blue eyes find me at the table where a lone water glass sits in front of me.

Liquid courage should definitely have been on the menu. Why didn’t I order a drink?

Because I’m an idiot. Because I thought I could handle this.

Now my heart is hammering so loud, my voice will probably be inaudible, or even worse—quaver when I speak.

Logan walks toward me with long, sure strides. He’s taller than I realized. And broader. And bigger. Everywhere. He’s wearing a black Henley that stretches across his chest, leaving no doubt of the fact that the man is built. And his jeans. Jesus. They’re worn and snug in all the right places.

The picture I found was clearly not recent, and it’s not just the fact that his brown hair is longer and shaggier. He’s one of those men who age well.

Logan stops in front of me when he reaches the tall bar table. He says nothing as his gaze drops to the toes of my boots and drags up every inch of my body.

“You’re a hard woman to find.”

Review: His to Have (Claimed #2) by Jade Sinner

Our final steamy story for this Smutty Sunday will be a bit reminiscent of 50 Shades of Grey with a twist.  The Claimed series is definitely an outside of the box set of stories.  His to Have has the steamy sex, BDSM and a mystery man that pushes the heroine just the way she needs.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

31375098Book Blurb:

Victor
She’s every man’s wet dream. Every night on the TV, broadcasting the news with her tight skirts and tits in front of the world.
I’ve sat back and watched as she thinks she runs the world, directing everyone and everything. But her time is up. I’ve planned this for too long.
She’s mine and I plan to have her—all of her.

Erika
I’m content. My career is going places. My marriage is safe. I don’t want anything to rock my world, until I have no choice. Until Sir.
Now it will never be the same.

Review:

Erika has her life and career in line.  She feels everything is safe.  That is until Sir comes into her life.  He will teach her both pleasure and pain.  Can Erika let go and let Sir rock her perfect world?  She will need to open her mind and body to someone she’s never seen before.

This was definitely a sexy book.  Jade Sinner does a great job with their short sexy books.  This is the first of their foray into BDSM.  It was also written in a way to make it appear Erika didn’t know the person “Sir”.  That was quite inventive.  You will learn who Sir really is and the extra level that is going on with this story.  I won’t spoil that for you but it definitely added a great addition to this steamy story.  This has been yet another great Jade Sinner book.  I hope I have been able to show you that Jade Sinner is one set of sexy storytellers.  That you will not regret reading.

 

Review: Mine to Have (Claimed Series #1) by Jade Sinner

The next two reviews I have for you today are going to be the most unconventional.  You will definitely have to think out of the box.  That being said they are still very sexy and steamy.  Mine to Have will take familial relations to another level. Just an FYI…they are NOT actually blood related.  So take a sigh of relief.  I wouldn’t read a book if that were the case.  For my full review (hopefully I haven’t lost you) keep reading after the book blurb.

30140575Book Blurb:

Max…

I didn’t ask for any of it. I didn’t want any of it.
I had a life. A playboy reputation and money to burn.
But then it happened…all the things I didn’t want…
Most of my family gone—taken by a distracted driver.
My father’s multi-billion-dollar conglomerate thrust upon me.
And her, Lacy, my niece (sort of), in need of a guardian.

Here’s the moral of this story (the only one): life doesn’t give us what we want.
Or does it?

Three years later…Lacy’s an adult and right under my nose, almost literally. No longer a girl, she’s a woman with sexy curves and a way of taking over my every thought. I know it isn’t right—she calls me uncle—but then again…maybe it is time for life to give me what I want. After all, she was given to me. She’s mine to have.

Review:

Max never asked for the responsibility of raising his niece.  She isn’t actually his niece but when his stepsister and the rest of their family died he was needed to step up to take care of her and his father’s business.  Three years later, his niece is all grown up and he wants more from her.  Though she may call him uncle she will soon realize they are more than that to each other.

This was probably one of the more difficult Jade Sinner books for me to read.  Though I know in my head they aren’t truly related they still have that familial relationship.  Now, if you can step back and ignore that part this is quite a steamy read.  The sex is hot and definitely creative.  I will be honest though and it does take some effort to forget the uncle niece thing but once you do it is definitely one very erotic story.
