Holiday Favorites! Jingle Boots : Rope and Ride ON by Em Petrova


Jingle Boots
Rope and Ride ON

Winter Blog Blurb

Good girls go to Heaven. Bad girls go to Vegas. Especially when they’re alone on Christmas.

When Veronica finds herself on her own this holiday, she does what any sassy young female would do—she calls up her bestie and lures her to Vegas with plane tickets. What could be better than hitting the clubs, having a few too many and…getting your twerk on?

Cutter would rather trade his boots for one of those feather Vegas showgirl outfits than spend Christmas at his big brother’s. But when he does the bump ’n grind on the dance floor with a sexy little filly with the mouth of a trucker, he knows he’s about to get lucky. Except he’s too much of a gentleman—isn’t he?

Veronica will take standing beneath the mistletoe with the blue-eyed, sable-haired cowboy over Aunt Lenora’s fruitcake any day. After all, he’s so darn good at tying knots—with pretty much anything. With only a few short days together, and her friend occupied with two hunky waiters, she has nothing to lose. Except Cutter’s getting a little too intense for just a short fling. Good thing he doesn’t know her real name…

Winter Blog Review

Not wanting to go to her aunt’s place in England for Christmas, Veronica does the next best thing, books a trip for two to Vegas and convinces her best friend Julie to go with her. When Julie hooks up with two guys they meet in a club, she is approached by an honest to God cowboy. One who’s mere scent sends her thoughts to the bedroom and him naked.

Cutter comes to Vegas to be with his brother and his family for Christmas, but staying in their home quickly loses appeal with screaming kids and the couple fighting. So he quietly leaves and gets a room at a hotel. He decides on a club not in his hotel and meets a sassy beauty who quickly perks his interest in more ways than one.

His eyes crinkled at the corners as he stared down at her. The world did a loop de loop around her, and she didn’t think it was due to the remaining effect of the alcohol. She might not pass a sobriety test at the moment, but she was clear enough to know she was wildly attracted to this man.

“You wanna walk?” he drawled, indicating the crowded sidewalk ahead of them.

“Yes.” She needed more time to get her mouth to line up with her thoughts. Both were a little scrambled right now.

“I like your boots. I think I’d like them better under my bed.” She clapped a hand over her lips, her eyes flying wide.

Cutter was laughing again, a deep rumble that threatened to rip more naughty things out of her mouth.

“I’m sorry,” she said.

He brushed his arm against hers as their bodies naturally drew together like magnets. Goosebumps spread over her arm, and she raised the coffee to her lips again. The sooner she was sober, the better.

“Don’t be sorry. Tell me about Roni.”

She did a mental somersault. Who had told him about the name she had secretly used for her inner diva? The one who would sass her mom or have one too many—

It came back in a rush of techno music and flashing lights. She had given that as her name.

For a moment, she wondered if she should set him straight and then thought differently. What happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas, and she had no intention of seeing this man when she left. Why not let him call her Roni?

A light display caught her eye as they passed one courtyard. A tunnel was created from lights, with flashing swans at the end.

“Oooh, look!”

He gave her an amused quirk of his lips. “Wanna go in?”

“Duh!” Oh Lord, she still had too much rum flowing through her veins. She took several deep swallows of coffee.

At her side, Cutter’s shoulders moved with his laughter. “You’re an entertaining woman, Roni.”

She straightened and owned the name. That persona wouldn’t care about appropriate behavior, so why should she? They moved into a tunnel of lights so bright she had to blink. The red, white, and green seemed to go on forever, and by the time they spilled into a bigger light display with animated light-up figures and animals, she had finished her coffee.

Cutter reached for her empty cup and dumped it in the nearest trash bin. “You live in Texas.”

Her body hummed at the memory. Drinking always made her horny, but the man at her side… Whooeee, he could rival the male strippers in this town. The cowboy part of a show— on stage taking off boots, hat, Wranglers.

She decided it was best to stick with the truth about herself. After tonight, she may never see this man again, but if she did, she didn’t want to be called out on lies. She nodded and quickly decided that was the wrong action for her still-woozy head.

“I work for my father’s construction business.”

He grasped her hand and brought her fingers to his lips. “A construction business, hmm? These feel silky soft to me.” As his bristly five o’clock shadow tickled her flesh, a spear of want hit her. Along with a vision of him licking spilled rum off her fingers.

Oh God, she was going to do something bad again, wasn’t she?

She curled her finger around his jaw and went on tiptoe just as he leaned close.

“I’d like to taste you again. Do you feel like spilling your drink all over your body, sweet thing?” The way he drawled thing sounded as thang. Her heart tripped.

She felt herself nodding. “I’m clumsy like that.”

“Good. Let’s make it a date then.”

While nothing happened that night they sure made up for it later. A holiday with enough heat to burn down the hotel. However Cutter knew he wanted more than just Vegas. The question was did Roni?

A quick sizzling read, that makes me want more of these characters. Not only Roni and Cutter but Cole, his children and Julie too!

My Review of Controlled Burn – Firehouse 5 Book 2 by Em Petrova


Controlled Burn
Firehouse 5 Book 2
Em Petrova



Fire Chief Pearce Johnson has been struggling with his attraction to fellow team member and special ops guy Mitch Morelli. In the sauna, long looks turn into a steamy self-love encounter. Pearce runs home and tells his wife of fifteen years all about it— resulting in a five-alarm blaze between them.

Ellie has always suspected her husband craves another relationship with a man. When he brings Mitch into their fantasies, she encourages Pearce to explore this newfound sexual link even as she longs for the big Italian firefighter to visit their bed. But taming two firemen might be tougher than she thinks.

Mitch can’t get enough of his rugged chief, or Ellie’s femininity. But on the job, his boss pushes him away and purposely avoids working with him. Wounded, Mitch is finished trying to see his lover’s point of view, until one perilous event makes them all wake up and realize love is too precious to ignore.


KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 KoboLogo AreLogo


Em Petrova writes some of the hottest scenes and this book is full of them right from Chapter 1.

Pierce is beginning a relationship one that could destroy his career. More importantly it could impact his marriage, he just didn’t know if it would be in a good or bad way.

Ellie knew this day would come years ago when Pierce confessed he was bisexual. With Pierce’s confession of wanting a relationship with Mitch, she is now squirming in anticipation at the thought of being with two men.

It was difficult to find a passage I could share because of all the explicit sizzling sex in this book but this was a favorite scene when Pierce tells Mitch of his wife’s request.

Pearce whirled, jamming a hand through his very short, dark hair as he did. “Dammit, Mitch, you know what I meant!”

“Do I? Seems strange to me. Alone, I’m good enough. But here, you’re afraid to even be around me. Partners. We’ve always been a team, man. Now I think you’re ashamed to call yourself a friend.”

“That’s not true.” Pearce’s voice shook. With anger or emotion? Mitch narrowed his gaze and tried to read him.


“You know why things need to be kept quiet. I need this job to support my wife.”

Mitch cringed a bit at the mention of Ellie, whom he’d never want to hurt for all the world. “That’s right. Ellie…”

“Yeah, Ellie— the same woman who asked me last night to bring you into our bed!” He pitched his voice low, the furious tones coming out as a harsh rasp.

A spike of passion struck Mitch, spearing him to the floor. He licked his lips. “She wants that?”

“Hell yes! But we shouldn’t be speaking of it here, and you damn well know it! Now get out, get dressed and fucking meet me outside.
Petrova, Em. Controlled Burn (Firehouse 5 Series Book 2) (Kindle Locations 665-676). Kindle Edition.

While there is a good story here with the firehouse at the center, there is sex or thoughts of having sex on almost every page. There is no gradual to this relationship, it takes off at top speed and stays there. Panty melting and some hold your breath action as well. I would have liked a bit more ‘getting to know you’ especially when Pierces brings Mitch home the first time.

My Review of Em Petrova’s Ridge – Rope ‘n Ride Book 3


Rope ‘n Ride Book 3
Em Petrova



Grab the popcorn—someone is about to get slapped or kicked on this episode of Rope ’n Ride.

The season finale of the Calhoun’ rodeo reality show ends with Ridge being stood up by the woman he loves and humiliated on national TV. If that isn’t bad enough, an old knee injury has him wincing every time he gets on the back of a bronco, making it difficult to put winning scores up on the board. But he’s determined to shake off his streak of bad luck—and all these marriage proposals from fans pouring in now that the show has aired.

Kashley grew up with the Calhouns, playing hide and seek in the cornfields while their fathers talked ranching. And she’s been in love with Ridge…well, forever. He’s never noticed and she’s too shy to make any attempts, but when she sees him struggling after his breakup, coming to his aid is a no-brainer. Which lands her on a whirlwind tour of rodeos, where she’s falling more for him while struggling to rein in his self-destructive behavior.

The cameras love to catch Ridge losing his cool, his family is riding him to cut it out and he can’t keep his eyes—or every other body part off Kashley. Then a secret is revealed that has him going after her ex even as his own ex pops into his life again. Between the drama, his old injury and Wranglers that fit too tight after being around the woman he shouldn’t toy with, Ridge is fed up. Plus he couldn’t be in love again so soon, right?




Ridge is just so volatile, his pride has taken a major hit after being stood up at his planned engagement dinner. Now he is short tempered with anyone that mentions Anna’s name. On top of that his knee is injured and he is trying to hide it from everyone.

Kashley’s been in love with Ridge forever although he hasn’t a clue. Like most childhood friendships he doesn’t really see the woman, just the child. She’s out to change that, she is determined to help him with his injured knee and his anger. If that puts her in the friend category forever, so be it.

Neither of them expected the heat that would explode while traveling to the first Rodeo of the season. Here’s a peek as they get on the road to the first Rodeo of the season.

A heavy weight settled over him. Everything seemed so fucked up right now. He was in the middle of pushing out a big sigh when the truck door opened and Kashley bounced onto the seat, bringing her beachy scent with her.

She took one look at him and frowned. “Uh-oh.”


“I know that look. Is your knee hurting you?”

“You obviously don’t know my look, because the knee’s fine.”

“Really?” She jiggled up and down, causing her breasts to bounce too.

He glanced away. “Yeah, it’s looser today. Not as stiff.”

“Must be the turmeric working its magic.” She reached over and closed her fingers around his knee. Extreme heat rocketed up his thigh, and his cock stirred. He pushed her hand away gently, not wanting to cause a fight before they’d even pulled out of the driveway.

She opened her mouth to say something, but Buck appeared at the driver’s window with a shit-eating grin. “You ready, Ridge?”

“Ready as ever. Eager to get on the road. Why do we have to caravan anyway?”

“You know it’s for the cameras. So they can zoom in on your scowl before you flip them the finger.”

He did so now, his middle finger touching Buck’s nose. He slapped his hand away and tapped the side of the truck. “Safe journey. Don’t get any speeding tickets.” He looked past Ridge to Kashley and waggled his brows at her.

Before Buck had taken a step away from the truck, Ridge said, “What the hell was that?”

Buck gave him a crooked smile. “Nothing. Just a little code for Kashley.”

Ridge swung her direction, and she wore a pretty blush over her high cheekbones. Her blue and brown eyes sparkled, though. “Is this true?” he asked her.


“Dammit, you’re telling me everything before we even get out of Tulsa. Get your seatbelt on, because it’s gonna take us two-point-three minutes.” He turned the key, revved the engine and stepped on the gas.

She squeaked as the truck launched down the driveway. “Why don’t you have a holy shit handle, Ridge?” She flailed around to find something to grip.

“Got ripped off.”

“By whom!”

“Wynonna. She didn’t like my driving, and you know she’s strong as a bull.” He reached over and yanked her seatbelt, tightening it across her chest. Kashley’s breasts bounced as they careened down the gravel driveway and made a right turn onto the highway.

“Slow down now,” she said.

“Not until you tell me what Buck was doing with that eyebrow code thing.” Shit, she was really bouncing around. Maybe he should slow down. Her breasts seemed ready to pop from her tank top.

His jeans shrank a little.

“I… Ridge!”

He’d done it— her top had worked down enough that he caught a hint of her bra.

Red. Satiny.


He let off the gas and drifted for a long way before the truck hit a more normal speed.

“Good thing it’s flat here. Maniac.” She threw him a look that told him that she’d actually enjoyed his antics. Well he’d known that about her, hadn’t he? She was a thrill seeker, always in the most jacked-up trucks with the loudest engines and the biggest tires.
Petrova, Em. Ridge (Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 3) (Kindle Locations 597-631).Kindle Edition.

This story just gets hotter from here. Then of course there are the Buckle Bunnies and the ex-fiance to help screw things up. I really enjoyed this book the Calhouns are growing up one at a time. I can’t wait for the next book!

My Review of Ryder – Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 2 – By Em Petrova

Ryder Book 2

Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 2
Em Petrova


Summer Blurb

Ryder Calhoun would rather face down an angry bull than commit to a relationship. And that’s exactly what every woman he encounters seems to be after. He’s a championship bull rider, and his family’s reality show is a big hit. He’s not into gold-diggers or Buckle Bunnies who are after the prize—him.

Joy Humphries is rodeo royalty—her dad is a big name in bull riding and she knows what the life’s all about. She also knows men like Ryder Calhoun. Strong, capable and reportedly dashing between the sheets, though Daddy wouldn’t let her hook up with a rodeo man even if she wanted to. But the more she’s around Ryder, the more she thinks he might be different. Or is that all an act for the cameras?

Ryder can’t complete a thought that doesn’t have Joy attached to it in some way. He doesn’t care if she’s slapping his face or letting him kiss her silly—just being around her is enough for him. Trouble is they can’t escape the camera crew, and her father seems to pop up around every turn. There’s also a not-so-little problem with her distracting him in the arena, and he needs these wins to help his family.

Maybe he should just give up on Joy, because the only thing worse than falling for a forbidden woman is doing it in front of reality TV cameras.

Summer My Review

I really can’t imagine having cameras following me day in and day out. The Calhouns have made it work, albeit with some reservations. As this tale unfolds, we get a bit more into the rodeo side of and also see more of life on the ranch.

I love Joy, she is feisty and quick witted, a perfect foil for Ryder. Her home, a ranch, where her father coaches up and coming bull riders, hoping to find the next champion. A favorite scene is in the beginning of the book, when Joy first meets Ryder.
She stopped dead. Face-to-face with the hunky cowboy. The blonde stood in front of him, toying with one of the patches on his shirt right over his pec. The cowboy looked past the blonde and directly at Joy.

Her heart gave a weird wobble. He’s not that great. I just have a weakness for cowboys because they’re forbidden.

“Riding bulls must be so hard,” the blonde said.

Rolling his eyes, the cowboy lightly grasped her wrist and pulled her hand away from his chest. “It’s not like painting your nails.” He looked at the pink claws on the hand he was holding and dropped it.

Joy found the urge to laugh irresistible and let it roll up her throat.

The cowboy looked straight at her and his eyes creased— God, they creased so adorably— and he pushed by the blonde to reach Joy.

Shit, now she was stuck. She’d been caught listening and there was no getting away from this cowboy even if she could uproot her boots from the dirt.

Now that her mind had caught up to her libido, she realized she knew him. Recognized him from TV. “You’re on that reality show Rope ’n Ride.”

He groaned so low that she wondered if she’d imagined it. There was a lot of noise around them.

He reached for his hat brim and gave it a tug. “Ryder Calhoun.”

“Joy Humphries.”

He blinked at her slowly. Then he let his gaze drop from her eyes to her lips and back to her eyes. She had her mother’s lips, too—“ kissing” lips some guy had once told her.

“Humphries. Are we talking rodeo royalty?” His drawl was back, deeper than before and doing brand new things to her body. The energy between them zapped her in all the right places, but she couldn’t act on it.

She nodded. “My father’s Thunder Humphries.”

“Damn, should I bow to you or something?”

She smiled and shook her head. “Maybe it’s you I should bow to. A big-time TV star.”

This time his groan was unmistakable, and she got the feeling he liked his position as much as she liked being the daughter of a famous bull rider. She never could be sure if people liked her because of who her father was or for herself.

“I’d kiss your hand, but they’re both full,” Ryder said.

She remembered the burger and lemonade. “Yeah, I’d better eat and get back to work. It was nice meeting you, Ryder.”

When she started walking away, she wasn’t surprised to find him keeping step with her, but unlike the last cowboy, she didn’t mind this one. Which was dangerous.

“Back to work? What are you doing here in Austin?”

“Helping my father. He’s coaching a few rising stars.”

“Ah.” The short response gave Joy the feeling he didn’t like having more competition, let alone ones coached by Thunder Humphries.

“Why aren’t you in the PBR? You’ve got what it takes,” she said, navigating around a cluster of guys standing in the way talking.

“Hmm, your father is a founder of the PBR, right? Are you selling memberships like Girl Scout cookies now?”

She laughed again— she couldn’t help it. Being back where she belonged made her feel so free and happy. And she liked having Ryder there. His body heat washing over her side made her skin prickle, but most of all she liked what she saw under his sexy exterior. So far, he’d revealed his disdain for a silly Buckle Bunny and his fame.

Maybe this cowboy had some substance.
Ryder (Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 2) (Kindle Locations 191-228). Kindle Edition.

There is a lot of family drama going on, and hostility toward the constant cameras. Finding time to be alone with Joy is one of Ryder’s goals, so he needs to get creative about it. Of course trying to keep it a secret from Joy’s father is a challenge as well. After all, he doesn’t want his little girl with a rodeo cowboy. Of course there are also the ever present Buckle Bunnies, they can give a girl cause to doubt her cowboy’s word. All that and a mix of sizzling hot sex, and maybe even a sniffle or too.

My Review of Buck – Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 1- By Em Petrova

Buck - book1

Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 1
Em Petrova


Summer Blurb

It ain’t easy being a rodeo reality star—especially when you’re expected to marry your ex.

After a TV network approaches the six Calhoun family members about doing a rodeo reality show, they jump on the opportunity for even more income needed to keep their ranch in the family. But now that Buck’s knee-deep in film crews, he wishes like hell he could un-sign his name from that contract. Having his personal business aired is no damn fun, and America doesn’t know his fiancée broke things off with him.

Channing loved Buck the moment she spotted him on top of his powerful horse. But she’s had enough of his cool, emotionless personality and she wants out. Only she signed up for this reality series, and she needs that cold hard cash to keep her brother out of the hands of the thugs he owes for gambling debts.

For Buck and Channing, pretending all is well is difficult. Keeping their hands off each other is impossible, and throwing the film crews off their horny scent is a challenge that’s becoming fun. Channing is starting to view Buck in a brand new light. And he sees her true colors when she finds a way to help the whole Calhoun family. Maybe she really will get that wedding ring and his last name.

Summer My Review

Nothing like a reality show to add stress to everything. With an obnoxious cousin trying to take their ranch the Calhoun’s have rallied together to but it back from him. Channing has her own issues. With a gambler brother who owes more than he can pay and wondering if her relationship with Buck is only really good sex.

Then we have Buck’s  calf roping partner, Asher. His wife ends up in rehab leaving him with their two young daughters to take care of.  This causes a lot of stress on the main money maker, the Rodeo. A favorite scene is with Channing taking care of the girls and they escape from the motel room.
“Where the hell did they go?” She’d gone into the bathroom for two minutes and come out and they were gone. Nobody had a key but her, so it wasn’t possible that Asher had come looking to take his little girls to breakfast.

A muffled giggle sounded, and she whirled. “The little shits are outside!” She was only wearing a bra and panties. Hell, were they even dressed? She grabbed the first thing she saw— Buck’s T-shirt, and threw it on while jerking open the door. Two little dark-haired imps stood on the sidewalk like the twins from The Shining. At this point, they seemed as evil.

Channing dragged in a deep breath, almost asphyxiating herself on the exhaust from an idling truck and trailer not far away. At that moment, one of the competitors, Chip, came around the corner of his truck and spotted her. She wasn’t wearing pants. Was this how mothers felt? If so, she didn’t relish the thought of starting a family.

“Get your little bodies in here,” she whispered angrily to the little girls, who just laughed as they ran inside.

“Howdy, Channing.” Chip lifted his hat to her.

“Hi, Chip.” She couldn’t turn around— Buck’s T-shirt probably wasn’t even covering her ass. Sliding her foot to the side, she did a funny shimmying step back to the door. But she’d forgotten her key inside and Asher’s spawn had locked her out.

Frustration lit her fuse and she turned to pound on the door, uncaring about Chip looking at her ass and bare legs. “Let me in! Montana, Maddie! Open the door!”

More giggles.

Yep, she was definitely going to figure out how to remain childless for the rest of her days. If quiet, kind Asher produced hellions like these, she couldn’t imagine what a Calhoun child would be like.

Not that she’d ever find out anyway. She and Buck were not getting married. Well they might have to stage a wedding but there definitely would not be a marriage license.

She groaned and pounded her forehead on the door twice. “Dammit.”

“Dammit!” one of the girls said from inside. The other one squealed and repeated it.

Great. Now I’ve corrupted them. No, they’re probably plotting to exhaust me, then kill me in my sleep.
Buck (Rope ‘n Ride Series Book 1) (Kindle Locations 1606-1628).Kindle Edition.

Lots of emotional ups and downs for everyone not just Buck and Channing. Lots of sizzling hot sex in spite of the insecurities. I just had to keep turning the pages to see what kind of a twist would happen next.

Release Blitz with Giveaway and My Review – Em Petrovas’ Ropin’ Hearts

  Ropin’ Hearts
 Boot Knockers Ranch #4
 Em Petrova
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
  Release Date: June 9, 2015


SummerBlog Blurb

It’ll take more than ropes and whips for this cowboy to keep his bratty woman in line.

At twenty-three, Bree Roberts is ready to sow some wild oats. The perfect place to start? The neighboring spread—The Boot Knockers Ranch, where twenty smokin’ hot cowboys deliver sexual therapy to women. The problem? The entry fee is more than she’s made in a lifetime.

Only wanting to explore, she figures her tanned, toned legs will be her ticket to ride. Except Ty keeps kicking her off their land. Then she begins to suspect the reason why. He likes her.

If Ty spots that little vixen wrapped around one of his cowboys one more time, he’s going to throw her over his knee. Trouble is, she’d like it. Catching her participating in the ranch’s notorious, semi-clad Cornhole tournament is one thing, but when he finds her under their resident Dom’s whip, enough is enough.

Ty won’t throw a naked woman out of his bed, namely one who deserves a spanking, but showing Bree the rewards of sex mixed with a little emotion leads to trails neither of them intended to tread.

Warning: Contains a spitfire cowgirl who excels at breaking the rules, and a cowboy who lays down the law—and a firm hand on her ass cheek.

SummerBlog My Review

This book was a gift from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Holy Moly! This book was so hot the words practically flamed off the pages.  I am extremely surprised that my kindle didn’t melt.

The story of the Cowboys of the Boot Knockers ranch continues with a feisty neighbor who’s curiosity may just kill the cowboy. Bree is a spoiled brat wanting to rope a boot knocker and Ty is the boot knocker aiming to tame her.

Bree’s antics and Ty’s responses while sizzling, funny and at times frustrating as hell were well suited to their personalities.  I am not putting a favorite passage as I can’t find one doesn’t have at least a smidgen of red hot in it.

My advice is to grab a couple gallons of ice water, turn the air conditioner on high and dive head first into this book!

I’m almost afraid to see what Em comes up with for the next one, as this series has gotten progressively hotter. This one will be hard to top.

It’s all in her head. Until she falls into the hands – and hearts – of two cowboys.

Sexual dysfunction. The words make Sybill cringe, but after one too many failed relationships, she has to face reality. Her O-button is broken, big time. Sick of sitting on the sexual sidelines, she books a week at Boot Knockers Ranch. If a passel of rugged cowboys vying to bring her bliss can’t get her off, nothing will.

Hugh had planned to sit out this week’s rotation of sexual therapy, but when he spots sultry Sybill, he pulls rank. His bone-deep urge to possess her isn’t enough to coax elusive orgasms out of her body, though. And his resolve to give the lady whatever she needs wavers when she shyly makes a mind-blowing request.

Riggs stepped aside when Hugh muscled in to claim Sybill, but he jumps at the chance to fulfill her ultimate fantasy—a threesome. But once they come together, all barriers are stripped away, exposing his love for the one man—and woman—he’d break every last rule to make his own.

Warning: This ain’t your daddy’s ranch. Contains cowboys administering sexual therapy to frustrated ladies—and each other. Fresh batteries recommended. You’re gonna need ’em!

I saw this on sale and I had to buy it. You know I have one-clickitis so that was no big surprise. I have read other books by this author and with a new one coming out soon, what better time to start the series from the beginning. I do that so rarely.

So I dive in, not knowing quite what to expect other than it was going to be hotter than hot, based on the warning in the blurb. Well folks, I was swept away into the story from the first page. I love the mantra, that they kind of compete for the women and push voting buttons, to light up their chairs. You get an immediate sense of fun and competition that lightens the mood away from the problems.

The Master of the Games, Hugh felt a connection with Sybill even before she went on stage. So in spite of being off for the week, he puts himself in the game. His goal to win this “sexy secretary” away from whoever had been chosen for her. As questions were asked of her, Hugh presses his button for her. So does his friend Riggs and the man she was supposed to be with, Damien. Both other men end up stepping down but Riggs did so with an attitude. He really wanted Sybill.

Having won her, he thought her problem of not being able to orgasm would be easy to solve. This was not going to be the case.
I’ve been hard pressed to find a non sexual favorite passage but here is one of my favorites. It occurs while Sybill is sobering up from a couple glasses of wine and runs into Riggs.

“I read your file. Says you’re a molecular biologist.”
She gave an enthusiastic nod that made her pale hair slither over her shoulders. He distracted himself by taking another sip of his coffee, barely able to keep from wincing at the flavor.
“What exactly do you do?” he asked.
“I fiddle with information mostly. Create testing for pharmaceutical companies about the effects of drugs on humans and also animals.”
“So you gather the information about the human bodies other people play God with.”
“Yes, just as you want to do with the horses.”
They smiled at each other, the link between them undeniable. He finally dropped his gaze to the coal-black coffee he held. “You know, my mother was ill for a long time. First lupus then lots of kidney and heart problems from the disease.”
Sibyll leaned over the arm of the chair and rested a hand on his biceps. “I’m sorry to hear that.”
He scuffed his knuckles over his jaw. “I appreciate it. Anyway, sometimes the side effects of the drugs were much worse than the symptoms. And sometimes she took drugs to counteract the problems created by other drugs.”
Sibyll pursed her lips in a sympathetic expression. “It happens.”
After drawing another sip into his mouth, he could barely swallow it.
“Why are you trying to drink that coffee if it’s that bad?” Amusement danced in her eyes.
“You know, you’re right.” He set the cup down and leaned against the chair back, crossing his ankle over his knee. Several minutes passed between them in silence, but it was far from uncomfortable. The glazed look she’d worn from the wine dissipated, replaced by the calm face of an angel.
“Everyone has a struggle in life, it seems,” she said softly.
Riggs studied her. More than once he’d had a woman spill her history of heartbreak or abuse. It sometimes purged and the woman was able to move on. He had to tread carefully, but he had to know. “What’s yours?”
Sibyll shot him a long look. “Hugh thinks I can’t ask for the things I want.”
Electricity shot straight to Riggs’s fingertips. He clenched them. “And what do you want?” The sparks between their gazes were a phenomenon all their own. He’d only experienced such a thing with Hugh.
Setting aside her empty mug, she turned completely lucid eyes on Riggs. “I want that threesome. With you.”

I swear, with each turn of the page, the heat went up several notches. I now understand why there is a warning with the blurb. The dynamic between Hugh and Riggs when coupled with helping Sybill reach her goal, made even breathing difficult.

I did some giggling at the antics and drank lots of cold drinks. A personal fan and cold showers were definitely required for this read. Of course you could also go with your BOB.

Release Day Blitz!!!! Fevered Hearts by Em Petrova with my Review & Giftcard Giveaway




Title: Fevered Hearts
Author: Em Petrova
Publisher: Samhain
 Release Date: March 31, 2015



When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.

Product Warnings 

Men who wield big saws know how to care of business—in bed and out.


My Review
 Once again Em Petrova has held me captive in a story.  This one not only revolves around two friends, Ward and Liam, and Liam’s wife Ivy, but their businesses as well.  When Ward and Liam reunite they are still keeping secrets. Their respective businesses are being attacked by Environmentalists against the harvesting of trees.  Although the replanting should have happened and they are working to correct that.  They find the threats escalating as they all get closer…and I do mean closer, they haven’t told Ivy anything, not personal or business related and this had me biting my nails.  Surely grown men can communicate with an intelligent woman.
One of my favorite scenes is between Liam and Wade as they contemplate merging businesses.
“Just that one?”
The teasing note captured Ward all over again. Fuck, he’d fall for this man time and again if only to hear that intimacy in Liam’s voice.

Ward huffed out a laugh to cover his overwhelming want. “Shut up, ass. I was thinking that you have problems here at Mattson and Bose Timber has problems too. What if we combine them?”

Liam shook his head. “What are you talking about? Making our problems bigger is what it sounds like.”

“I’m talking about throwing everything into a pot and stirring it together. It makes sense. I need help in the office, you’re in the office. I need to fulfill contracts, you need the contracts.”

“How the hell would that work?”

“A merger. We work together. We don’t make any legal changes, but we start a sort of co-op. Lean on each other.”

Liam scuffed his knuckles over his jaw, and the rasping sound raised every hair on Ward’s body. “And we take on each other’s problems too.”

“That’s right. Such as the planting problem.”

“And the wife problem.” Liam’s words were solemn.

Ward jerked. “What do you mean?”

“I mean,” Liam said slowly, a far-off expression claiming his rugged features, “that I have a wife who needs to be satisfied, and you have a cock that works. Until I get mine in working order again—if I can, that is—we’d form a merger.”

Ward shoved his chair back so quickly that it shot into the wall. “What are you fucking saying?”

Liam relaxed back in his wheelchair, looking more comfortable than Ward had seen since returning home. “I want you to make love to my wife, Ward. Show her that she’s beautiful and sexy and important.”

“It will make her feel important for her husband to give her to another man?” Ward’s mind spun, and he wondered if he’d really been the one to take a blow to the head, not Liam.

But the thought of touching Ivy’s sweet little curves, of tilting her face up and staring into her eyes before kissing her tender lips, did things to Ward’s insides that he couldn’t begin to name.

“By giving her pleasure through you, it would show I care, yes.”

Ward smacked a palm off the desk. “You can’t mean it. You’re high on painkillers, aren’t you?”

Liam folded forward and dissolved into laughter. “No. I’m dead serious, man. I’m asking you for help in satisfying my wife until I can take over.”

“Why don’t you do the things you can to make her happy and give her pleasure? Finger her, lick her pussy. Hell, compliment her on those gorgeous legs.”

Nodding, Liam seemed to contemplate what he was saying. “I can do that. And I will.

But I need some time to get back into the game. In the meantime…”

“Ivy would never go for something as screwed up as this.”

Liam placed his hand over Ward’s, meeting his gaze. “She will. I’ve seen the way she looks at you.”

“What way is that?” Ward’s stomach rose and fell twenty stories in a matter of seconds.

Turning Ward’s hand over, Liam threaded their fingers. The warmth of the caress, the gesture itself, was Ward’s undoing. “She looks at you the same way I do.”

Something has to give but who and/or what.

Five contented purrs for Em!!

I really want more loggers PLEASE!
