Club Secrets USA Book 1
Layla Wilcox (Author)
David Hauser is home on break from college. David is getting ready to go to medical school. While in his bedroom, he goes to use an old computer and discovers it is logged into a porn site. David is shocked to learn that some of the naked photos are of the beautiful and sexy neighbor, Andrea Whitney. She is his mother's friend, and David used babysit for Andrea's children. David has had a crush on her, since he was fifteen years old. While David is enjoying Andrea's photos, his mother walks in on him. Very embarrassing. David learns that Andrea frequents a place called Club Secrets and is on her way there. He goes there in hopes of meeting up with Andrea. Once at Club Secrets, David discovers a very different scene than he is used to, but he does find Andrea. David helps Andrea out, when she is drunk, harassed by a man, and in a scary situation.
This is book one of three in the series. Andrea is a woman who is exploring her sexual side. David makes his way through the clubs, in each book. I liked that David is a gentlemen, but has a naughty, dirty side. I loved his answer to what his medical specialty would be. Hilarious! This is a very steamy and fast read. A fan may be required while reading this story.

The Billionaire Biker's Bitch 1 (An Alpha Billionaire Romance)
Layla Wilcox (Author)
On her way out for a girls' night, Claire Davenport is pasted by several bikers. One biker comes way too close to her and seems to checking her out. Later down the road, Claire see the biker again and notices the writing on his shirt. (I personally love it by the way.) While dancing she is approached by a sexy stranger. Claire has a sexual encounter with him without getting his name, but he asked her first name. I love when he calls her "little one". As he walks away, Claire notices the back of his shirt. Claire starts her new job soon as a receptionist, while she finishes her master degree.
Alexander Harriman is a billionaire CEO of Harriman Motors. When he gives the welcome speech to the new hires, Alexander discovers the girl from the club, Claire is one of his newest employees. The company has a policy of no employee relationships. He invites Claire to come over with her employee manual/rules in one week. Alexander is used to being in charge and getting what he wants.
Alexander is an alpha male with a sweet side. Claire is a feisty, strong woman. The sexual chemistry and sex scenes are hot and steamy. The last scene was great with the shirt that Claire buys. I can't wait for the next book to see what is next book for Claire and Alex. I love how these two seem to feed off each other. I think that everyone could use an Alex in their life. Yum.

Caustic (Dark Romantic Suspense) (Dark Desires)
Morgan Black (Author)
Skye Kellan is called to her dying grandfather's bed with a final request. He wants her to find her twin sister, Leia, and bring her home. Leia has been missing, since she check out of the mental institution. Ellis Waters knew Leia, when they were both patients at Connecticut Psychiatric. Skye tracks him down to see if Ellis might know where Leia is. Together Skye and Ellis go looking for Leia. They hope to find her, before someone else more deadly does.
This story has a lot of suspense and mystery. Many of the characters have secrets and dark pasts that they want kept buried or don't often share. Many of the twists and turns I didn't see coming. Often I thought I knew what would happen next, but I was usually wrong. I loved both main characters, Skye and Ellis. I would like to know what happens in the future for them, if they are able to move on from their pasts and find happiness. I feel that they each deserve that. This book left me desperate for more (like; what happens next, is there a HEA, etc.) I wish that I could say more, but that would give away the story. I recommend that you read it, because you won't be disappointed.

Shane and Jackson are also interested in Tessa. When she goes to investigate a strange noise, she discovers the two men in a tent. Tessa hears them in the throws of passion. She decides to stay and watch. Very juicy! Jackson and Shane show Tessa what it feels like to share and to watch. I love when Jackson show Tessa how to play the card game, Strip War, in the middle of camp. Tessa has a hard time staying quiet with these two (separately and together). Shane and Jackson are dirty talking, alpha males. The scenes with Jackson and Shane were hot and steamy. I loved the way the story ended with a hea. What girl won't want two sexy men all to herself?!

Warrior (First To Fight Book 1)
Nicole Blanchard (Author)
Warrior is a story about love, second chances, struggles (both mental and physical), family, and so much more. This book takes the reader on a wild ride through every emotion. I found myself crying one moment and laughing the next. The reader will feel sadness, angry, fear, happiness, and love. This is a book unlike any other that I have read lately, in the best possible way.
After time spent in foster care, Olivia was adopted as a young girl into a loving family. Her older brother Jack is very protective of Olivia. One of Jack's best friends is Ben. As a teen, Olivia has a crush on Ben. They shared a kiss, before he went into the military. Ben felt that he would never be good enough for Olivia. He calls Olivia, his sweet spitfire. Ben loves her hair and when she gets fired up / feisty.
While home on leave, Ben see Olivia again. They share an incredible night together, before he deploys overseas. Both of them know that they can only have the one night. What they share is very special. When they part the next day, Ben tells Olivia that he knows that he can't ask her to wait for him, but he hopes that she will.
Ben comes home a changed man from his experiences, what he has seen, and his injuries. Olivia has changed also (death of family, her own struggles, being attacked, a child with health issues, etc). Olivia is a fighter and a survivor. When Ben comes back into Olivia's life, he wants to protect and keep her and her son safe. Olivia is not sure if she wants to open her heart to Ben again. She is afraid to be hurt again.
Ben and Olivia are both fiercely loyal and protective of their family. They both have vulnerabilities and fears/demons (like most people). Due to these fears / demons, their are (other twist and turns) events that happen, not for the good in the story. But Ben and Olivia learn to trust each other again for their family and find their happily ever after.
This story is told in the POV of both Ben and Olivia. It will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through. I hope that I did this story justice with this review, because I LOVED it. I just hope that I expressed myself completely. I highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to the next book.

Seduced (At The Marine Masquerade Ball)
Jamie Klaire (Author)
Rose goes to the military masquerade ball. She looking for some fun (adventure). Rose knows what will happen if her father finds out what she is doing. She seems to feel braver with the mask on. Rose daydreams/fantasize about a man, that she sees there, with chocolate, brown eyes. Later Rose has a dance with the man. Soon Rose and her mystery man end up in a room behind the curtain while the ball keeps going. These two never speak to each other or remove their masks.
I did enjoy this story, but I wish it was longer. I'm greedy that way. I would have liked to know that the story continues for these two (with what they shared). Overall, I did like the mystery of it all. It is a steamy, sexy read.

Boned on Bluecreek: A Back Roads Novella
Moxie Darling (Author)
Boned on Bluecreek is the second book in the series. This book can be read as a stand alone. There is a follow up or insight on Clover and her men, Eustace and Jim.
Willow Spencer decides to go to West Virginia to visit her friend, Clover, after receives a letter from her. Clover has been living in the backwoods and asked Willow to come there. Willow will be working as a nanny for a widow with three children. She is a hippy / wild child with a free love attitude. Willow is instantly attracted to Teddy.
Teddy is still reeling from the death of his wife and not sure how to interact with Willow or his children. Teddy doesn't really talk and is very standoffish to Willow. She tries to get his attention without much success, until she looks to another for some sexual attention. Teddy doesn't like that very much, and things change between them after that.
Willow is a woman who just wants to be loved for who she is. Teddy is a man who is not sure how to move on with his life. These two help each other grow and change in positive ways. They both discover the other person's sensitive side and vulnerability. Teddy and Willow each had fears and doubts, but they accepted the other for who they were (flaws and all).
This story still has the extremely, steamy sexual scenes and expletive language like the previous book, but it is so much more. This is a more complete story, in my opinion. This book has romance with a happily ever after. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I loved Willow and Teddy together. I loved that you got to know and understand the characters more. I loved "The Band-Aids" and "A Well-Read Book" concept or analysis. I have many favorite quotes, too many to list. One of my favorite quotes is:
"You Kiss me like you're on fire." "Because you make me burn."

A Bear's Protection
Roxie Noir (Author)
Cora is a young woman, who is leaving her friends and family behind, to move across the country to get away from a stalker. She has decided to move to the shifter state of Cascadia. Cora feels that this move is a new start for her and hopes that she can feel safe again. She is a feisty woman with a vulnerable side.
Ash is a police officer, who takes his job seriously. Hunter is a veterinarian. Ash and Hunter have been friends since they were teenagers. They are bear shifters and are a mate pair. Ash and Hunter are looking for a woman to complete their triad. They truly love each other.
When Cora speeds into their lives, Ash and Hunter are both hooked / smitten. They know that she is the woman that they have been waiting for. Cora is not looking for love, but she feels an instant connection / reaction to both men as well. When things start to happen with the stalker, Cora doesn't tell the men everything. Ash and Hunter tell Cora that they can protect her. They feel very protective and a little possessive of Cora. I loved that Cora could count on the two men, when she needed them the most.
This is a very hot, steamy read. It is my first shifter story, but I loved it. The men are extremely sexy together and with Cora (hot sex scenes). I have read other stories by Roxie, and I am never disappointed. This story has romance, action, suspense and great characters.

Selena Kitt (Author)
**I received this arc book in exchange for an honest review.**
I am a huge fan of Selena Kitt's books and step books (in general), so I was not disappointed by this latest book. This story has a wide range of emotions and elements. There is of course forbidden love, but also danger, betrayal, manipulation, tragedy, love, and sex. The story of Conrad "Beast" and Tilly has many twists and and turns with secrets that come out along the way. Tilly fell hard for Beast as a teenager. He left to serve in Afghanistan. Tilly didn't think that she would see Beast ever again. When Tilly's mother is diagnosed with cancer and is dying, Beast is asked to come spend time with Tilly and her mother. While under the same roof, Tilly realizes that Beast has changed and that she still has feelings for him. The sexual chemistry and tension between these two are intense. The sex is hot and steamy. There is BDSM in this story, an alpha male and a club. I like that Selena Kitt lets you get to know or see into the these two characters. I felt that I could understand them, because we got to know their strengths, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, fears, dreams, etc. It made me root for them to have their happily ever after. I felt that I could understand them, because we got to know their strengths, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, fears, dreams, etc. It made me root for them to have their happily ever after. I feel like I went through every emotion with Beast and Tilly. I cried also. I do recommend this book.

Russian Enforcer's Royal Engagement
Nic Saint (Author)
5 steamy stars!!!
Russian Enforcer's Royal Engagement starts off with a bang, literally! Then add in a panic room filled with sexual tension and chemistry.
Diana Petrov is attending her brother's wedding in the kingdom of Montinia, when the palace is rocked by an explosion. Terrorists rush in and hold everyone hostage. Diana escape to a panic room with a sexy stranger that she had noticed earlier, not by her choice. Jack, aka Prince Jacques, tries to keep Diana in the room and safe. He is used to being in charge from his background in special forces. Diana is feisty and the two argue. She wants to have someone take care of her or protect her for a change. Because of who Diana's family is, men don't think that she needs to be taken care of. After they become intimate, Jack instantly feels protective and possessive of Diana. Jack decides that he won't let anyone hurt Diana. He makes Diana feel safe and feel other things that she hadn't felt in along time if ever. The terrorists force Diana with Jack to exit the panic room by threatening to shot her family. It is discovered that the terrorists were there looking for Diana. Jack tells the terrorists that they are engaged, so Diana and Jack will be able to stay together. Diana discovers through these men, who she really is, her real family tree and her family fortune. The terrorists take a lot from Diana ($ hint) She is lost and torn regarding Jack. Diana is in loving with a Prince Jack, but feels she is not good enough / not in his league. Jack convinces Diana to stay a little longer and more trouble follows.
It does turn out great and I hope that you read this book. I loved it!! I appreciated that Nic Saint let us see all sides / facets of the main characters (Diana, Jack). We get to see their hope and dreams, their fear, and struggles (I feel anyways). I highly recommend this book. I believe that these characters could be real.
