button synopsis

7 years ago

From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires.

Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him.

There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.

Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight.

Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two, Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive, is present day on, and the expected release date is early Fall 2015.

button review Alex's

Once again Ann Mayburn has lit the fires of love, lust and submission with lots of pitfalls along the way.  Having read the other Submissive’s Wish books, I’ve seen the unhappy Alex and have wanted him to find some happiness.

This book takes us to the past and tells us the story behind the Alex we have seen.Alexandr meets Jessica while she is working at her Uncle Peter’s Pub in Ireland. She has heard of his reputation with the ladies and has no desire to become a notch in his bedpost.

Alex never expected to be so attracted to someone and when Peter hires him and his crew to keep her safe, he is determined to keep his distance so he wouldn’t break her heart.

Jessica, inspite of her protests, is attracted to Alex.  She becomes friends with her bodyguards, teaching them English and telling them about her life before her parents died and she came to Ireland.  Alex’s repeated rebuffs get to her and she resigns herself to the fact that they would only be friends.

One of my favorite scenes takes place on the anniversary of the death of Alex’s stepmother and step-sister. Dimitri is with him and meets Jessica for the first time when she brings over biscuits and gravy for dinner.  They settled in to drink and exchange stories of sexual escapades and near the end of the night this happens.

Instead of cowering from Alex’s anger as most men would, Dimitri wiggled his eyebrows.

“Aww, come on. You heard her, one of her fantasies is two men at once…and another couple. Imagine watching Jessica eat another woman’s pussy while you fuck her. Like I said, you lucky son of a bitch.”

Shaking his head, Alex couldn’t help but laugh even as he wanted to yell at his brother to stop thinking about Jessica like that. Dimitri was too charming for his own good, but Alex liked to see his brother happy like this, especially tonight. What was normally an evening spent drinking until they passed out had instead become one of the best nights Alex could remember having in a long time.

Jessica turned in his arms, then glanced up at him, and smiled, her beauty devouring his heart. She reached up and traced his lips with her fingertip, the velvety rasp of her skin against his lips making his cock throb. When her eyes crinkled as she giggled over something, he sighed, knowing she was going to feel like shit in the morning. Funny that it was usually him and Dimitri who passed out drunk on this grim anniversary. Instead, for the first time in many years, they were a little buzzed, but not smashed into an alcohol-fueled oblivion.
“Alex,” Jessica murmured while petting his goatee. “Did you know, when you talk in Russian, it makes me wet?”

Dimitri choked on his Scotch.

Alex blinked down at her, wondering what the hell he was getting himself into. “My voice makes your pussy wet?”

She nodded slowly, her eyelids growing heavy. With a sleepy grumble, she moved until she was curled up in his lap, her body resting heavily enough against his that he realized she would pass out soon. Then she nuzzled her face against his throat, her nose and lips brushing his skin and leaving a burning path of sparks everywhere they touched.
“You smell so good. I want to rub myself all over you so I can smell you on me.” His skin beneath her lips grew sensitive, and the heat of her breath tested the limits of his self-control. Her husky voice was the distilled essence of debauchery as she whispered, “Wanna to know a secret?”

“Da. I mean yes.”

“I think you’re the most amazing man I’ve ever met, and I want you so damn bad, dream about you constantly, but you don’t want me and that sucks.”

His heart gave an odd thump, and his chest actually hurt. Knowing she probably wouldn’t remember their conversation tomorrow, he brushed her hair back from her face. Her smile was beautiful, but sleepy, as she beamed at him. “I tell you secret. I do want you.”

From this point you need to have a fan and plenty of fluids to keep you hydrated. I laughed and cried, my heart ached and my pulse raced, I even panted a bit, OK a lot!
The gradual build of the relationship and Alex introducing Jessica to BDSM was so damn erotic and sexy.
We even get to see the other Russian Doms in this series as younger men, which was a bit weird having read the other books. It all comes together nicely though.
I was expecting this cliffhanger and trust me it doesn’t hurt any less by knowing the next book isn’t too far away.

 

FIVE CONTENTED PURRS for this heartrending beginning.

button About the author

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

My Review:

This novella was a gift from the author/publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Have you ever just wanted a short read that packs the heat?  Well this is it.

I love the Ashwood Falls Novels and this one set in that world is just one more to love.

Once Logan has Reagan in his arms again he knows he can’t let her go.  So to solve her problem he calls his Marshall Connor and has him do some research on her now deceased mate Mason.  When he catches her trying to leave to protect him and his pack he tells her what he found out. That leads into one of my favorite scenes.

She jerked back as if surprised by the information. “I never knew.” She sagged and wrapped her arms around her middle. “I was too busy dodging his fist.”

“And plotting your escape.” He softened his tone and reached out to her. Relief washed away some of his tension when she didn’t pull away. “Come inside. I have a few sentries keeping a watch out.”

Without warning, she hugged him tight. Closing his eyes, he held her to him, relishing in feel of her body against his. No matter how mad he’d been over the years, he still loved her.

Framing her face in his hands, he kissed her. A low growl vibrated from her as if the shewolf approved. Need rocked through him and he tore his mouth from hers. Without a word, he linked their fingers and tugged her toward the bedroom.

Easing her down on the soft mattress, he gazed into the depths of her desire-filled eyes. The flame they once had flared to life as if waiting for the moment when they would reunite. He ran his knuckles down her cheek and she shuddered. “I’m not going to let you go this time.”

“I should have fought harder to mate with you, or at least told you what had happened.” Her hazel eyes watered.

“The past is behind us. I don’t have the strength to push you away or to hold my wolf back from making you ours, forever.”

Realization lit up her features. A shimmer of hope formed in her expression. “Then don’t.  I’m yours. I’ve always been yours.”

Everything gets really hot and steamy from here.

Logan and Reagan have quite a bit to overcome and solve and Lia, as always, has us guessing until the end.

While there were editing errors I cannot judge them since this is an ARC and I hope that the final copy will be corrected.

I give this novella five contented purrs.

I hope Lia has more plans for this world.  I would hate not see it again.

Sneak Peak Review!! If You Can’t Stand The Heat by Taryn Kincaid


IfYouCantStandTheHeat Cover

IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT
By Taryn Kincaid

 A hot and spicy, sizzling contemporary foodie romance from Fated Desires Publishing’s new “Give Me a Taste” special line, releasing 2/24/15. Available for pre-order now!

This book was a gift from the Author/Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

 BLURB:

 Derek Dunne is a Cordon Bleu-trained food critic for the prestigious New York Monitor, whose scathing review of a popular Italian bistro has driven away all but the most loyal neighborhood patrons.

Lucrezia Serafina DiCicco is a clumsy business school drop-out, working as a chef and scrambling to keep her family’s restaurant afloat, after her father develops diabetes and is banned from his kitchen for his own good.

Now, with The Monitor folding, Derek is searching for his next career path and longing to get back to his first love—cooking—while Lu is desperate for an influx of cash to save the struggling restaurant…even as her father puts his foot down about non-family employees.

Derek and Lu embark on a marriage of inconvenience to save the restaurant. But can Lu ever really trust the man who nearly destroyed her family, once noted her initials spelled “LSD,” and her food was like a “bad trip?”

Or will it be their hearts on the chopping block?

MY REVIEW:

The print version of the NY Daily Monitor is done. TV, Radio, and internet is their future, but not Derek Dunne’s.  The top food/restaurant critic has other ideas and they don’t include critiquing anything.  He’d trained as a chef, but life took him down this road. Now it’s his time to cook and create his own specialties. The question is where.

After a scathing review by Derek Dunne, Il Sapore dell’Amore is going under.  Lu DiCicco took the restaurant over from her father because the stress of running both kitchen and business end of the restaurant is detrimental to his health.  Lu has no culinary training and now is struggling to keep the restaurant afloat.

The latest crisis avoided by her cousin and employee, Glory who apparently has a thing going with the owner of La Dolce Vita, their dessert supplier. In spite of Lu’s attempts to fire her, Glo insists that both she and Gino (Lu’s brother) will work until things are right again. That’s what family does.

One of my favorite scenes is the excerpt and more here’s a bit more.

“Oh. Sorry.” He stuck out a hand. “Derek Dunne.”

Her jaw dropped on a shriek of horror that could have been heard in Queens. She glared at his palm as if he’d suggested she nibble rat poison from it.

“Get out!” she barked. “Get the hell out of my restaurant and don’t come back. Ever.” Her breath hissed between her teeth, but the wretched reviewer stood his ground. Or rather, sat his bar stool. “Don’t make me call the cops, buster.”

“Then have a drink with me.”

“I’d rather jump from an airplane without a parachute,” she snapped. “Now. Get. The. Hell. Out.” She snatched his drink off the bar—an icy martini, of course—and tossed what remained in his face, olive and all. To his credit, or nerves of steel, he barely flinched. Alcohol dripped from his classic nose and well-defined jaw down his neck, dampening his collar, and the olive skittered the length of the bar. She took a swift glance around the restaurant to see if anyone else had noted her uncharacteristic abuse of customer. Yeah. Right. Not when the despicable Derek Dunne had ensured a near-empty house.

He swiped at his face and throat with a cocktail napkin. “Maybe I deserved that.” He held up a hand, as if to ward off another blow. “Maybe I didn’t. The food wasn’t exactly stellar that night. Or the night I returned to see if the first service was a fluke. Hasn’t been much better this week, either.”

“Reminding me of your acid review isn’t going to help your cause—whatever the hell that might be. And I still want you out of my restaurant.”

Unbeknownst to her or the staff, Derek has come back to eat several times since his review.  Most recently the last three nights.  When he asks to see Lu he gets a lot more than he bargained for and so does she.  *Fans self* (reason in the excerpt.)

Derek proposes a solution to her problem, he would be her Chef.  Which raises another more critical problem, her father doesn’t allow anyone but family in the kitchen.

Can Lu marry Derek to save the restaurant, does she want to?

Will Derek marry Lu to get the career he wants, a chef but none of the administrative duties of owning the restaurant.

And then there is the attraction they have for each other, where’s that heading?

The interaction between these two is funny, frustrating and steamy. I loved the internal battles going on in each of them.

When you top all this off with a traditional Italian father and family, fireworks or clear sailing, you pick. <evil grin>

This is another must read from Taryn Kincaid! Bravo!

I give this book five contented purrs!

I am really looking forward to more of this Give Me A Taste series from Fated Desires Publishing!

EXCERPT:

She brushed her hands on her apron and straightened her shoulders as she strode toward the bar. Not in the mood. So not in the mood. As if the hunky stranger had come here looking for a hook-up, rather than to send back his too-salty pasta fagiole or rubbery calamari or register some other grievance.

She looked a fright besides. The moon might resemble a pizza pie but amore did not live anywhere in the restaurant anymore, except in its name. As that bastard Derek Dunne had pointed out in his review. Vicious…but truthful, she had to admit.

As she approached the customer, she positioned herself with her back to the mirror over the bar, so she didn’t have to gaze at her sorry reflection. At least no one else was at the bar to gawk at her frazzled condition.

The man swirled a pool of condensation on the burled wood with his index finger. Strong hands. No rings, she noted. Up close and personal, his looks were even more devastating, the essence of hearty masculinity radiating raw, contained power, his body taut with muscles beneath a finely-tailored suit that stretched across broad shoulders, his blue eyes intense enough to put her in a near trance. She gazed at his long, blunt fingers playing restlessly on the bar and imagined him sliding them across her heated flesh. Making her wet. Thrusting inside her. His thumb stroking her clit until it swelled, the pleasure so unbearable he had her writhing with passion, screaming for release.

Holy cannoli! What the heck was wrong with her? Was she that desperate? Yeah, probably. And yeah, he looked that good. Good enough to eat. With or without whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Oh, yeah. That image helped cool down her roaring libido. Not.

Suppressing a shiver, she cleared her throat. “I’m Lu DiCicco. You

wanted to see me?

Release Blog Tour For Exquisite Danger by Ann Mayburn with my Review


Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing (November 25, 2014)
~Synopsis~
Some people think my boyfriend, Smoke, is a total biker psycho, a natural born killer who will destroy anyone who threatens what he considers his. They wouldn’t be wrong, but he’s so much more than that. For the first time in my life I know what it’s like to be completely and truly adored by a man who loves me for exactly who I am, a high functioning autistic with more personality quirks than there are stars in the Texas Hill Country night sky. He’s the dark salvation I never dared hope for, my beloved fallen angel who is trying with all of his wicked heart to save me from what seems like an entire world bent on either killing me or a fate worse than death.
We’re headed to the Denver, Colorado chapter of the Iron Horse MC, chasing after my narcissistic, junkie mother who decided to steal from some very bad men leaving her two daughters behind to pay the price for her betrayal. My twin sister, Sarah, old lady to the Iron Horse MC president, is looking for my mother as well, but Sarah’s gone rogue and has no one to guard her back which worries me deeply. To further complicate matters, there are traitors in the Iron Horse MC who are working with my mother, not only helping her to escape but also informing my enemies of my every move.
The odds are stacked against me, but I will do whatever is necessary to protect those I love, and with Smoke at my side, I just might make it out of this mess alive.
                        ~My Review~
First let me say, this book is not for the faint of heart.  It is very descriptive and no holds barred in every aspect of the book.
Smoke and Swan are an explosive couple to say the least.  In this book we get to meet Swan’s family, both immediate and extended.
As the search continues for her (birth) mother and twin sister Sarah, the tension builds higher and higher.
There are very intense scenes where I was holding my breath, praying, crying and gripping my kindle so tight I’m surprised I didn’t snap it in two.
As always when Smoke and Swan come together the sex is somewhat frenzied, fiery hot and steamy as hell.  Much fanning and cold drinks were my rule of the day.
The “nice” excerpt below is one of my favorite conversations between Smoke and Swan.
Bravo, Ann.  You’ve done it again.  I wait (im)patiently for the next in this fabulous series.
Five contented PURRS for this book.
~Excerpts~
(Naughty and Nice)
 Nice
Resting my cheek on Smoke’s chest I absently stroked the sparse hair on his arms, humming to myself while I enjoyed my post orgasmic bliss. I felt so connected to him, so loved, and I was
trying with all my might to avoid thinking about the day to come. The small, scared, dependent part of me my father had tried so hard to destroy wanted to spend the rest of the day hiding here
with my man, but I knew Smoke would never allow that.
Sure enough, his muscles flexed beneath my cheek as he sighed. “Time to get up, sweetheart.  We have a brunch we need to get to and a traitor to catch.” His perfect, bronze skin gleamed in the sunlight, and I let out an appreciative sigh as he stood. He really was too fucking hot for his own good.
“You think one of them is a spy?”
“The old ladies?”
“Yeah.” I walked into the bathroom to quickly wash the remains of our activities away with a brief shower.
There was silence while I cleaned up, and by the time I came back, he was looking at his cell phone with a frown, busily typing something.  Whatever he was reading wasn’t making him happy if the anger coming off of him was any indication, and I tensed as well, my body reacting to his non-verbal language. I watched him
begin to pace, and my pulse picked up, throwing off the lingering afterglow from good sex. The only time my man paced was when he was struggling to hold back some strong emotion, usually rage.
Fear tried to worm its way further into my heart, but I concentrated instead on getting dressed in a pair of cute jeans, with elaborate stitching on the back pockets, and a lovely orange and pink bra that matched my panties. When he growled, I turned my back and tried to apply my lip gloss with a shaking hand, before giving up and watching in the mirror as Smoke paced behind me.  When I’d first met him, I would have wanted to stop him from pacing, to try to calm him down, but now I knew him well enough to realize that this was his form of downloading. For Smoke, his ground-eating strides somehow soothed him, so I left him alone and slipped on my wrist cuffs, admiring the gleam of silver in the sunlight coming in through the partially opened shades and sheer, white curtains.
A harsh sigh escaped him when he finally stilled and met my eyes in the mirror. “It’s not outside the realm of possibility that one of them may be a traitor.”
As soon as the word traitor left Smoke’s lips, memories of my father lecturing me on how traitors were the lowest of the low, the scum of the earth, raced through my mind. If there was a rat among the old ladies, I was gonna find her, fear of meeting new people or not. I would find a way to get through this and bring us a huge leap forward in my efforts to get this fucking hit off my head, and bring Sarah home. With this in mind, I turned back to look Smoke in the eye and he grinned. With his words, the training from my dad kicked in, and I gave him a slow nod as my mind shifted from ‘Swan, the woman’ to ‘Swan, the battle-trained survivor’.
“What do you want me to do?”
“Easy, mama bear. I don’t need you clawin’ anyone’s face off.”
That brought me out of my cold space a little bit and I shrugged. “I’m going to do what has to be done.”
Still smiling at me, he nodded, and the light caught the hints of amber in his eyes, turning the irises to the color of melted chocolate. “I know you will. But for right now, just check them out. The traitor could be acting independently of her old man as well, so if a woman seems real unhappy with her man, she might be a suspect. Or if she seems really happy with everything, that might trip your female ESP as well.”
“My female ESP?”
“Yeah, you know, that chick intuition shit. Look, we don’t have time to sit around and bullshit right now. If we did I’d still be fuckin’ you instead of talkin’. Damn woman, I can’t seem to be around you without wanting you beneath me.”
Heat rushed through me, and I squeezed my thighs together to try and stop the initial ache of arousal. “Okay.”
My voice came out in a high-pitched squeak that made him chuckle. Not knowing what the day would bring, I chose a loose, long-sleeved, pink, silky shirt with a tight, white tank top beneath that, which was also a waist holster. As I got dressed, I waited for Smoke to come molest me, but he remained on the bed and focused on whatever he was texting. A renewed sense of purpose filled me, but there was also a growing sense of loss at being away from the safety Smoke provided me. He was the only person here I trusted, and I wasn’t a big fan of being in unfamiliar environments, even if he would be there with me.
“Baby, what’cha thinkin’ so hard about?”
Before I could stop the words, I said what I was really thinking. “I don’t want to be away from you.”
He sighed and looked up, watching me as I hid a variety of weapons. The weary look left his face and a slight smile curved his lips. “Make sure you don’t go through any metal detectors.”
Strapping a sheathed throwing knife to my forearm, I glanced up and raised my eyebrows.
“Ha. Ha.”
“I’ll be there, but you’ll be on your own with the women. If I hung out with you, it would be totally out of character.”
I placed my handgun into its holster on my waist before securing it in place and tugging my shirt down.
As I moved this way and that in the mirror to make sure the gun couldn’t be seen through the tank and shirt, Smoke laughed. “Does that thing have a laser sight on it?”
“Of course. Never hurts to have that little bit of extra help, but I don’t use it much. If I relied on it, I’d be a shitty shot at night.”
“Wouldn’t you worry that the laser would show them where you are?”
“Not really. When I shoot, I shoot to kill.”
“Baby, sometimes you scare me.”
“Ditto.”
Naughty
I was still lost in my own fantasy world when the door to my side of the truck was jerked open, and I was snatched out before I could tumble to the ground. Smoke ignored my shriek and grabbed a blanket from the backseat before carrying me over his shoulder to the back of the truck. He took the gate down, tossed the blanket onto the bed of the truck, then perched me on the blanket, all while speaking in Spanish to someone on the phone. Judging by his tone, it wasn’t a happy conversation, but he gazed at me with lust and not anger. He wasn’t pleased with whoever he was talking to, and it made his movements somewhat harsher than usual, more dominant.
I liked that.
He put his hand over the cellphone and said in a stern, no-bullshit voice, “Take your pants off and play with that sweet pussy for me. Fuck, the thought of being the first to do all these dirty things with you and knowing that I’m gonna be the only man you’ll ever have inside of you, makes me want to give your greedy body every inch of cock it wants, and then some. I own that golden cunt.”
I moaned loudly, and arched my hips up at him, begging him to touch me as he seduced me with his raw words. I wanted to argue that I belonged only to myself, but that wasn’t true. Smoke owned a piece of me now, not just my libido but a bit of my heart and soul. I should’ve been freaked out, but I also realized I owned a part of him as well.
I looked into his dark eyes and studied his face, and found a dizzying amount of desire mixed with rougher, darker emotions. I deliberately made a great production of taking my clothes off, putting everything I’d learned while working at a strip club to good use. My moves were controlled, the dip of a shoulder to draw his gaze to my neck, a slight arch to my back that pushed my butt out.
His voice faltered for a moment then picked back up as he traced his fingers over my bottom. The tremble in his fingertips as he stroked me made me want to drive him crazy. This man loved me. It was evident in his every caress, his every glance, and his every territorial move. Smoke was one hundred percent alpha male, and his need to assert his dominance over me never failed to turn me on. He put his hand between my shoulder blades and pushed me down, then propped my butt up so I had to curve my spine to accommodate his silent demands.
Remembering what he wanted from me, I spread my legs the slightest bit and slowly ran my fingertip over the wet slit of my sex. Smoke went silent behind me for a long, long moment. When he spoke again, his voice had a rough edge to it that hadn’t been there before. I stared at the bed of the truck with unseeing eyes, my imagination painting vivid pictures of my man standing behind me, trying to concentrate on business while I tempted him with pleasure. The control that I had over Smoke with my body ramped my desire higher as I tried to entice him to touch me…taste me.
I teased myself and him, swirling two of my fingers through my arousal before sinking them slowly inside of me. I startled when Smoke grabbed my hips, but it was only so he could arch me further and spread my legs wider, leaving nothing of my body hidden from him. He stroked the back of my thigh with one hand, his voice becoming nothing but a rumbling sound in my ears as I reveled in his attention. My fingers felt good inside of me, but his cock would feel so much better.
“Touch me,” I whispered.
Evidently I said it loud enough so that Smoke could hear me, because a second later he spanked my bottom hard enough to sting. I almost jerked my hand away from my pussy in surprise, but his hand cupped over mine. He moved my fingers inside of me, using my hand to touch my pussy the way he wanted me to. I gave myself over to him completely, my bite-bruised breasts crushed to the blanket and my ass feeling heated in the cool air.
When he was satisfied that I was playing with my sex as he’d silently instructed, he removed his hand for a moment and unzipped his pants to free his thick erection Then he ran his thumb near the entrance to my body, coating it with my arousal. I tensed when that thumb began to spread my natural lubricant up to my anus, but he just played with me, toying with my body until I was trying to get him to sink his thumb into my bottom. A naughty pleasure tightened my sex, and I groaned as he slowly breached my rear entrance with his thumb, which felt gigantic.
I tensed, not sure if I liked this sensation. It was weird and uncomfortable and…ohhhh, God… Smoke was smacking my hand away so he could press his rock-hard shaft against my pussy. His thumb turned from a distraction to an erotic thrill as he slowly sank into me, now speaking in English. I had no idea what he was saying, too caught up in the press of his almost unbearably thick dick breaching me where I needed him the most. The feeling of coming together was bliss, and I moaned from deep in my chest. When he went to pull out, I squeezed my inner muscles and earned a rough, choking sound from Smoke, followed by a snarl directed at the person on the phone.
“Baby, bite down on that blanket,” he whispered to me. “I don’t want this dirty fucker Hustler listening to you. You get too loud and I’ll stop fuckin’ you.”
I managed to gather the blanket, and hoped it was clean as I bit down on it. Personally, I didn’t give a shit if Hustler heard me. I’d seen him getting a blowjob by a pretty, but world-weary woman. Hustler could kiss my ass about me making any noises. It felt good to moan my pleasure into the cloth, and I had no doubt that Smoke—he loved gagging me—was getting off on the sight. Evidently, I had a bit of an exhibitionist streak because the idea of Hustler on the phone getting turned on by our fucking made my pussy clench. Now, I’m not saying I’d touch Hustler, ever, but I wanted to do anything and everything, as long as I did it with Smoke. A decadent shiver went through me at the sheer naughtiness of what we were doing, and I began to rock back onto Smoke’s devastating cock, enjoying the slow burn as he stretched me.
He stood still and let me experiment, his thumb still playing with my bottom. My eyelids slowly closed, and I became lost in the nothingness, my entire being focused on what kind of sensations I could coax from my buzzing nerves while rocking my hips back into Smoke. Soon, I was making little, pained noises into the blanket. There was a place on the upper part of my pussy that felt really, really good when he stroked over it in a certain way. The ridge of the crest of his shaft was pressing into me just right, and I shuddered then grunted.
I barely moved a few inches with each roll of my hips, trying to move to maximize that wonderful, hard tingle I got with every short stroke. It almost felt like he was rubbing my clit from the inside. Another hard moan escaped me, muffled by the blanket, then both of Smoke’s hands gripped my hips hard enough that it sent bright sparks of pleasure/pain surging through me.
“You like that, my naughty girl? When my cock strokes you right…there?”
I cried out as he shoved roughly into me, pressing hard on that spot and making my whole body shiver and shake.
“Yeah, you like that.” His chuckle was that of a smug, self-satisfied male. “We’ll have to see if I can make you squirt for me sometime. But right now, I need to fuck you before anyone else calls me.”
With that he pulled all the way out until the bulbous head of his dick stretched the entrance to my sex, a cry of distress leaving my lips before I could stop it. He laughed again, but the sound turned into a growl as he began to fuck me, harsh thrusts that rocked the truck with his movements. One of his hands left my hip and wound into my hair, pulling back hard enough that I couldn’t help but scream out my pleasure.

~Author Bio~
  Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of  West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist,   a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan   Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
   From a young age she’s been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that   often  was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she   discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless   stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
   Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.

Release Tour! Touch of Desire by Lia Davis with my Review


Touch of Desire (Ashwood Falls, #4.5)

 

TouchOfDesire72

By Lia Davis

Released November 18th

Blurb:

As the wolf senior enforcer, Torin Fisher’s job is to protect the pack and each of its members. That includes the beautiful submissive wolf, Cora Rivers. He’s known for a while she belongs to him, but he decided to wait for her to come to him willingly. Since her brother’s death, he’s watched her withdraw from the Pack little by little. Tired of sitting by watching her suffocate her wolf, he decides the time has come to claim her.

Cora Rivers is no stranger to pain. Just as she comes out of her mourning over her parents’ brutal murder, her brother—and best friend—suffers the same horrifying death. Grief cripples her and in attempt to learn to be independent, she inadvertently stifles her wolf by not letting her out to play on a regular basis. When Torin Fisher, begins the mating dance, her only choice is to run.

Together they have a chance to not only release her wolf, but find the connection and future they both deserve.

My Review:

I love the Ashwood Falls series and I loved this added glimpse.

Cora is suffering from nightmares of being chased by and caught  by Mutants (half human/half shifter beings), in the same way her parents and more recently her brother had ultimately met their deaths.  On top of all this her wolf has withdrawn and she cannot shift.

With the help of her former Alpha she gets a job, designing the new security that would encompass the Ashwood Falls and MoonRiver dens.

In her new position she must work with Torin, a dominant male who knows she is his mate.  He has been very patient so she can work through her grief but knows he must make a move.

A favorite passage in this book is when Cora is getting ready for a date with Torin.
Cora picked at her water bottle. “I can stay….”

“No way. You’re not getting out of it that easy. It’s about time you gave into Torin. I mean, the male has been chasing you for the last few months.” Jasmine tried to hide her smile behind the bottle. She failed terribly when it came to teasing Cora about Torin.

“Well he isn’t leaving much room for me to run anymore. Working on the security system means also working with him.” She sighed and leaned against the counter. “I don’t know how to handle him. He’s so much male and dominant.” 

Jasmine laughed. “You don’t handle a male like Torin. You tease, love, and bite him.”

This book is well written with laughter, angst, tears and fear.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Five contented Purrs for this book!

Excerpt:

The familiar scent of spring lilies invaded Torin’s senses, enticing and alluring. His wolf began to pace and whimper when the man made no move toward the door their female stood behind. Why would she seek him out here of all places?

The door to the new temporary computer central opened, and the scent intensified. Turning toward the entrance, he met the stare of his mate and instantly grew hard. Whether Cora knew she belonged to him or not, he remained uncertain. He’d known since she’d come of age at eighteen. Though he had every intension of claiming her, he and his wolf had to wait until she came out of her grieving period over the loss of her family.

He ground his molars together and inhaled deeply through his nose. Felix and his band of fucked up minions were going to pay. Someday, somehow. Torin was going to be there to witness the fall.

Straightening fully, he studied her. Strawberry blonde curls fell in unruly waves around her shoulders as if she rolled out of bed. Maybe she had. He roamed his gaze over the rest of her. She wore a faded pair of gray sweatpants and a pink tee with a coffee stain above the hem. His cock hardened even more, pressing painfully into the zipper of his jeans.

She held onto their eye contact for only a brief moment, but long enough for him to see the distress and sadness she fought to hide from the world.

He stalked toward her, and, when he got within a foot from her, she retreated a step. Then Keegan flattened a hand on his chest. Torin glanced down at the leopard’s hand, then met his stare. “What’s up?”

Keegan chose to answer him telepathically—a skill the former Alpha shared with all the enforcers and sentries. I know she’s your mate, but she needs time.

I’ll give it to her, but she needs….

She needs to heal and become independent. If you push her, she’ll run.

Torin let out a low growl, then focused on Cora. She watched them as if expecting an attack. Sighing, he dropped his shoulders and held out his hand. “Good morning. What has you so upset?”

“Just a dream. What are you doing?” She indicated Alec and the five-screen computer system.

After a quick glance over his shoulder, he studied her closer. Her attention focused on Alec and the monitors. “He’s trying to figure out the new security layout, but he’s not having much luck.”

“Fuck you, Tor. If it was easy, they wouldn’t need me and Dane to work on it,” Alec growled.

Torin laughed. “He’s having so much fun. You should stay and join us.”

“I think I will.” Cora pushed past him to stand next to Alec at the computer.

Torin stared, shocked her sudden change in mood and interest in what Alec was doing. A low growl rumbled from his chest. He meant it as a joke, not expecting her to give her attention to another male. His wolf paced and snarled, demanding Torin grab her and leave the building.

Review of Delicate Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan


DI cover

 

Fated Desires Publishing, LLC, October 14 2014, 257 pages, ebook

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

A sexy, bearded tattoo artist meets his match and the sparks fly!

Blurb:
On the wrong side of thirty, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy. Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her–in more ways than one. Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.

My Review:

One of the things I absolutely love about the Montgomery Ink series, is that there is always more than one thing going on.

In this one, Austin and Sierra have many hurtles to overcome to continue there relationship, once it gets started that is. There are many everyday life experiences that are explored and some really surprising ones as well.

As Austin and Sierra get to know one another and Sierra faces her fears and her past as a very hot, very steamy relationship blossoms.  Austin’s past makes a few appearances and many of the cast of characters, in my opinion, needed their asses kicked.  I just don’t know what order….

It is also nice to see other characters from the novellas.  Shep and Shea (Ink Inspired) come to Denver for a visit kinda.

We also meet Callie, Austin’s apprentice.  Oh let me not forget the whole Montgomery Clan!

I couldn’t put this book down and in fact read it twice to be sure I got all the pertinent information before I reviewed it.

One of my favorite passages from the book and there were many I assure you, is right after Sierra meets Austin for the first time.

Seriously?  That bearded mountain of a man thought he had the right to judge her?  What right did he have to sneer at her and look down on her with those gorgeous blue eyes, and make her feel like she didn’t belong in his shop?

Wait.

Gorgeous blue eyes?

I laughed and cried and wanted to kick some ass in this one and totally needed a cold shower with the steamy sex scenes.  I can’t wait for the next one in the series. Totally Hooked!

Five contented PURRS for this latest from Carrie Ann Ryan!

My Review:
I started this series in the middle somewhere, and I really cannot get enough.  I now own, I think, the entire series and I have to go back and read them in order.

I loved this book the emotional exchange between Maddox and Ellie is palpable as is the love they have for each other and their adopted daughter, Charlotte.

In this book they are faced with different emotions brought forth by outside influences.  First in trying to help a couple with the loss of their son, and later with the fear that their daughter had been kidnapped.  The way they share through the mate bond shows how strong they can be when they help each other deal with the outside emotions.

A favorite passage:

“No one is in trouble.  Well, you’re going to be grounded a bit,” Maddox said, and Charlotte wiggled between them.

“Grounded?”

Ellie met Maddox’s gaze and nodded.  “Yes, baby, grounded.  You can’t leave without telling an adult.  A lot of people who might have been needed elsewhere were taken off their shifts to help find you.  That’s not saying it wasn’t worth it because you know all of us would do it again to make sure you were safe.”

“How grounded?”

“No TV or cookies for two weeks,” Maddox answered.  “You can play with your cousins because you’re a wolf and you need the pup play, but only at our house during that time.”

I cannot wait for the next book in this series.  I know Carrie Ann has been hinting at the next one, so hopefully it won’t be too long a wait.

Once again Carrie Ann Ryan has earned 5 contented purrs from me!
