Unequaled BT Banner

Kerry has hated Rhys from the moment she set eyes on him. They’ve never had an encounter that didn’t end with them both enraged. Paired up at his brother’s wedding, their clashing personalities come to a head and a daring wager is made. Rhys agrees to submit to Kerry for a single evening if she will do the same. Considering the sexual flavors Rhys has enjoyed in his past, it’s one bet Rhys is sure he can’t lose. But Kerry has a few secrets of her own and her plans for him land Rhys in a place he never expected, the arms of sexy Italian solicitor, Asher D’Ettore.

Asher becomes an obsession Rhys can’t shake. His alpha ways and confident mannerisms render all of Rhys’ usual charm useless. With his hard-earned reputation in the media spotlight, Rhys is forced to make a choice between his public persona and true love.

WRRT Banner Excerpt

Awareness of Asher’s presence at his side never left Rhys. Not for a second. As he’d predicted, the warehouse where unsanctioned matches were held was packed to capacity five minutes after they arrived. The sound of fists cracking against flesh filled the air. People cheered and groaned with each blow depending upon which side their money rested.

The winner drew more applause than jeers when it ended. The arm raised in victory was covered from wrist to collarbone in an intricate tattoo. Shaggy blond hair dripped with sweat.

“I believe I have seen that gentleman somewhere before.” At Asher’s statement, Rhys looked closer at the man in question. He turned his head in their direction, almost as if he could feel them discussing him. Rhys dipped his chin in acknowledgment when their eyes met. Kurt returned the gesture.

“You have.” Rhys’ remark came out sounding dry. “He works the door at Affinity.”

With a silky chuckle, Asher shrugged. “I suppose it is good I am not as memorable as you.”

Turning an incredulous look on Asher, Rhys scoffed. “Are you kidding me? I haven’t been able to wipe you from my mind since setting eyes on you.”

Asher’s eyes shined with mirth. “I meant because of your title.” His gaze dropped to Rhys’ mouth before returning to his eyes. “In every other way, I am extraordinary.”

Don’t I know it, Rhys thought, resisting the urge to readjust himself.

“Next up we have Knox Collier. I hope everyone has their bets in.” The announcement caused the crowd to push forward. Somehow, Asher ended up at Rhys’ back in the crush. His brother’s familiar form ducked through the doorway of the cage.

“I would know you were related even if no one said as much. The two of you look very similar.” The sound of Asher’s voice floated over Rhys’ shoulder. The heat of Asher’s skin seeped through his shirt.

“Huh. I’ve never thought about it.”

Asher was close enough that Rhys could feel his nod. “The difference is in the countenance. Yours is charming smiles.”

“And Knox is hard,” Rhys finished Asher’s thoughts with a nod. “He had to step into the role of adult at a young age. Rigid living is all he knew before his wife.”

“So your parents are gone?”

Rhys nodded. He wasn’t ready to have that conversation. Luckily, Asher didn’t push for more. He shifted even closer behind him. “My money is on the other guy, by the way.” Asher’s lips brushed his ear when he spoke.

He didn’t touch him in any other way. Rhys’ body reacted the same as if Asher had stroked his shaft. In an attempt to call his body under control, he eyed the man in question. His hair had been shaved into some strange design on one side of his head. In spite of his odd appearance, he seemed every bit as fit as Knox. However, Rhys knew the truth. No one was as vicious.

“You’re betting against my brother?”

A low sounding laugh fell from Asher’s lips sending a vibration straight to his already weeping cock. There wasn’t a chance in hell of Rhys reeling in his lust. “Not with actual money. Only verbally. The other fellow has a good thirty pounds on him. Not to mention, his reach is longer.”

It was true, but Asher had never been to an underground match. He’d also never seen Knox fight. A smile tugged at Rhys’ lips as Asher’s breath fanned across the side of his neck. “What if we make it a wager then?” Rhys suggested. Turning his head, he brought Asher’s face into his line of sight. “If my brother wins, I get to see you again tomorrow night.”

Asher’s expression never changed but his eyes darkened. “If he loses, you have to come home with me tonight and allow me free reign over your body.”

Damned if Rhys didn’t hope Knox lost. Lowering his gaze to Asher’s mouth, he lingered there for a moment before answering. “You’re on.”

The bell rang. Rhys turned away. The awareness of Asher lingered. Knox bounced on his toes a moment before clipping his opponent across the side of the head. The crowd pressed closer to the cage in their excitement. Asher’s chest came up against Rhys’ back. Even with the thunderous cheers and jeers going on around them, he could hear Asher speaking to him quietly. “Are you hard for me?”

The horde shuffled forward as Knox’s opponent landed a blow to his shoulder. Asher used the momentum to his advantage, allowing his hips to cradle Rhys’ ass long enough for him to feel his desire. Rhys’ skin tightened as chill bumps rose on his skin. Electricity surged between them. “Answer my question,” he demanded, showing the alpha side Rhys could not resist. “Are you hard for me?”

Tilting his chin, Rhys cut his eyes at Asher as he made his admission. “I’m probably going to have a permanent limp.”

Asher’s lips twisted into a sinister grin. “Good. I’m going to fuck you. You’re never going to forget it.”

When was this goddamn fight going to end?

Veronica – ☆☆☆

Unequaled is book 3 in Charity Parkerson’s No Rival series and can be read as a standalone (I have not read the previous books).

The start of this story drew me in and I connected with Rhys who is a good guy, sexy, confident and an MMA fighter. By 30% was crying tears of frustration for Rhys. I quickly hated Kerry and Rhys’ brother Zane. For me it came across like the people around Rhys kind of felt like they knew better than him and I wanted Rhys to tell them to shove it.

The introduction of Asher to the story is a very hot scene, just what I love to read. I liked the way they started to come together as a couple but I felt this story went from lust to love in the blink of an eye. I would have liked more build up and more time with Rhys and Asher as they got to know one another.

Overall this is a good read and I’d recommend it. I’m hoping there will be more stories in this series.

 

Mary – ☆☆☆☆

Rhys is a sexy MMA fighter who just won the championship title. Now he has to go home for him brother’s wedding. Knox, Rhys older brother is marrying Mandy, the woman Rhys loves but she chose Knox. So he will have to move on. And with Kerry, a woman that he clashes with every time they see each other. She has a bet for him and he will not back down from a challenge. This challenge will surprise him but it will be just what he needed. This is a really great story that will leave you breathless. This is a first for me from Charity Parkerson and I loved it, can’t wait to read more from her.

Chasing Perfection Vol. 1 by M.S. Parker Blog Tour

Chasing Perfection RDB Banner

They all think they can sleep their way to the top – blondes, brunettes and redheads. That is, until they meet me. My name is DeVon Ricci and I’m an asshole. At least they all seem to think so. But I don’t give a shit because they never last long. Two or three weeks tops, then they’re gone. Not that it matters. There’s always another talent waiting to take a seat on the casting couch, but I’ve yet to find what I’m looking for. I know what I want and I won’t settle for less. I’m always chasing perfection.

The embodiment of the American dream, DeVon Ricci had come to America from Italy when he was a teenager and then, with hard work and perseverance, had worked his way up in a cutthroat industry to emerge as the head of one of the top talent agencies in Los Angeles. Now it looks like he has everything he could ever want, except for the perfect woman.

Shelby – ☆☆☆☆

This was a very quick, fast paced read.

DeVon Ricci is the owner of Mirage Talent Agency, and has an ego to rival ANY Alpha Male character I’ve ever read. Krissy is a smart, strong, stubborn attorney from NYC who is looking to make a life in California. She comes to Hollywood to interview for a position in Mr. Ricci’s company… but the interview process is ANYTHING but “normal.”

The characters drew me in, the writing kept my attention, and the chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS!

This story had some steamy scenes, it has a bit of humour, but mostly it hooked me in and I can’t wait for August for the 2nd installment!

 

Shannan – ☆☆☆☆

I am new to these characters, I never read the Club Privé Series.

I immediately found this to be a page turner. DeVon Ricci is the bad boy womanizing alpha we all want to hate, but can’t. Krissy Jensen isn’t the typical virginal helpless woman that the alpha usually goes for.

I loved the buildup of chemistry between the two. It leaves you wanting so much more to happen. I can’t wait till volume 2. Picked up Club Privé #1 while I wait for the next installment. M.S. Parker will definitely be added to my TBR list.

 

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆

This is a quick, hot read, which promises a great deal from this new series from Ms. Parker. I recently read, and reviewed her Club Privé series, and was delighted to have news of those characters too. I will be looking out for the books as they come out, so that I get the full story as it unfolds.

I really enjoyed the introduction to the lead characters – one perfectly wicked and one wonderfully sassy, both hot and both intelligent. The way that play each other is fun to read and, wow, how I wish that I had Krissy’s confidence. There is definitely a great story developing in these plot lines. When things take off, the heat is going to endanger my Kindle.

 

Angie – ☆☆☆☆

From the author who brought us Club Privé, which was amazing, we now have Chasing Perfection. This is Krissy’s story that was in Club Privé. Krissy wants more than just being a boring lawyer in NY, her dreams are to go to the west coast. When Krissy goes to California for her interview she is nervous and excited. Boy was she in for a big surprise! Her second interview wasn’t supposed to be until the next morning, however, DeVon Ricci, owner of the Mirage Talent Agency, decides not to wait until then. WOW is all I can say. The lengths DeVon goes to for some things are just crazy. The chemistry between Krissy and DeVon is off the charts even though he is a total jerk, hot jerk none the less. This will be another awesome romance series and I can’t wait for the next installment!

WRRT Banner Excerpt

I had just popped the tab of my Diet Coke when the door opens. Like déjà vu, Liam enters the locker room, except this time I am sitting with my legs crossed and fully clothed.

“I just wanted to make sure you were all right,” Liam says in his ridiculously sexy voice. Jesus, what is with this guy?

“Yes, why wouldn’t I be?” I ask, sounding maybe a little harsher than I had planned.

“My father was very rude. I wanted to apologize for his candor,” he says, all debonair and provocatively. “I think my uncle Matty has a huge crush on you.” He chuckles.

“He’s old enough to be my father,” I say bluntly, with a little disgust.

“Ouch! I won’t tell him you said that.” He winces.  “You’re really not interested, though?” he asks and I just shrug.

“Yeah, really.”

“It’s just that most of the girls who work here would be jumping at the chance to land my Uncle.” Liam just exudes sex in everything he says. I want to yell at him, “You have got to be kidding me, stop talking and fuck me already!”

I feel my face turn hot at my thoughts and turn my head away from him.

“Well, Mr. Tarseta, I am not like most girls,” I say, not looking at his black lust filled eyes.

“I am seeing that.”

“What is that supposed to mean?” I shoot back.

“It’s that you flirt just enough with patrons, but not enough that you are advertising something is for sale.” He steps further into the room and sits next to me on the bench. He’s close, close enough I can smell his expensive cologne, and holy fuck does he smell good.

My breath hitches and I let out a gasp as I feel the heat radiating between us. “Mr. Tarseta, I’m not for sale,” I say, taking a drink of my Diet Coke, my mouth suddenly very dry.

“Ms. Troy, everything is for sale for the right price,” he says low, almost in a whisper. I stand, feeling the need to put some distance between us.

“That is your opinion, but I assure you that there is no number large enough that can buy me,” I tell him still avoiding those black eyes.

“So you are saying that nothing can buy you, nothing at all.” He stands, inching his way closer. I feel the electric sparks bouncing off of me.

I swallow hard as the smell of him fills my nostrils, I feel him watching the hollow of my neck.

“I am not a possession to be bought, Mr. Tarseta. Besides, why would you want me anyway, you have tons of girls just itching for you to own them.”

“Well, first off…” He lets out one of his low sexy chuckles, “I don’t ever remember saying I wanted you.” Ouch, now that hurt. I feel about two feet tall. He stands there cool as a cucumber, while I’m a hot mess of nerves and lust.

“I didn’t mean to insinuate that you did…” I stutter, trying desperately to repair this very embarrassing moment. I turn to my locker to look for something, anything to distract me. I find my phone and pretend to read a text, also trying to pretend he is no longer in the room.

“Second, Ms. Troy, if I did want you, I would have you.” He leans down close to my ear, so close I can feel his hot breath. Okay, that’s it, I am not a toy for you to play with.

“Well, I guess it’s a good thing you don’t want me, because I assure you, Mr. Tarseta, you would not have me if you did,” I snap, slamming my locker door. With a huff, I walk around the bench to avoid having to touch Liam as I exit the locker room. What nerve, what an arrogant asshole.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆

This is an interesting book to read as it pulls together a mafia based mystery, a girl making her way through college, a playboy, and obviously, a hot romance. The prologue is clever as it sets everything up, but then we seem to veer off the subject for a while. I enjoyed the bar scenes, as Harper is wonderfully sassy and unaffected by the craziness around her. It was maybe a little too neatly packaged in places, and seemed to end rather hastily, but it was a good read – solid 4*

 

Angie – ☆☆☆☆☆

Harper Troy isn’t making much money at the little diner she works at, so when she hears people on her college campus talking about The Guardian, a gentleman’s club, and how much money you can make. Harper decides to go and apply. The minute Harper walks in the door and looks around she knows that The Guardian is way out of her league and turns around to leave. Matty Tarseta stops her and convinces her that she is just what the place needs. The Guardian is nothing but hot rich men, the women working there are all after a sugar daddy and every other woman is their competition. Harper isn’t there to find a sugar daddy or anything else; she just wants money for college. Then Liam Tarseta walks in. Drawn to his dark eyes, Harper knows he is nothing but trouble and always with a different woman. Liam wants Harper and he won’t stop until he gets her. Liam has never been told no, until now. Harper wants him but knows she can’t have him; he only wants to put another notch on his bedpost. Liam wants his “Petal” and he is willing to do whatever it takes to have her. This book is such a roller coaster ride at times, at times you want to slap the crap out of both Liam and Harper and then other times you just want to hug them. The chemistry and sex between these two characters is so smoking hot. The book was enjoyable, I wish there was another one maybe about Harper’s brothers or maybe even more into Liam’s family but it was a great standalone.

Characters: Well written and likeable
Sex: Hot and steamy

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆

Harper Troy needs to earn a decent amount of money so she doesn’t have to take out more student loans, so she applies at The Guardian an upscale bar where the waitresses wear little more than a bandana.

In walks Liam Tarseta, the son of the boss, and Harper immediately gets a case of the hots. Knowing that messing with anyone right now, especially the boss’s son, is a bad, bad thing, she does her best to ignore Mr. Hot and Bothered.

Liam Tarseta is intrigued. Harper stands out as a brunette in a club full of blonde waitresses. Not only that, she’s told him “no.” “No, I won’t have a drink with you”, “No, I won’t go out with you”. Just “no.” What’s a guy to do? Pull up his designer jeans and get his charm on.

Lust, misunderstandings, love and forgiveness all play a vital role in this book. This is the first book I’ve read of Ms. Nichols but I’m eager to read more.

 

Shannan – ☆☆☆☆

I didn’t know to expect with this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Harper Troy is an average college student looking to make money. She takes a job at the Guardian, a well-known gentleman’s club owned by the Tarseta family. Liam Tarseta is a head-turning drop dead gorgeous bachelor who is at the Guardian regularly. There is that unspoken chemistry when the two lock eyes. Harper refuses to be swayed by his bad boy charms and Liam doesn’t want more than a night with Harper.

I found it to be a roller coaster ride of emotions. The chemistry between Harper and Liam is off the charts. My hope that there is more about the brothers, I really enjoyed reading about them.

I like that Liam had to fight for what he wanted and it wasn’t easy. I know this is listed as a standalone but I would love to see more from the secondary characters. Overall a good read.

I live in Iowa with my amazing, supportive husband. He is my rock and my king, and treats me like all woman should be treated. (Like a spoiled Queen) I have two miniature dachshund’s that are my babies, and they love to keep me company when I am writing away on my next WIP.

I’m about to publish my 6th book, and can hardly believe how my life has changed. I’m called an author, and still can’t believe it. I’ve met some amazing women on my journey so far, and have learned so much. (Sometimes the hard way.) I’ve been like a sponge soaking up all the information I can on how the publishing world works. It’s been a rollercoaster ride so far with its ups and its downs.

No matter what, I will never regret anything I’ve done. You can’t succeed if you don’t try, and if you don’t try you won’t succeed. One of my favorite quotes “If the dream is big enough the facts don’t matter.”

Some other info about me, I love my family, friends, wine and anything caffeinated. I also love writing HEA. For the same reason I won’t watch a movie that I know will make me cry, (with the exception of Steel Magnolias) I will never write a book without a HEA. There might be a few twists and turns, a cliffhanger or two. But ultimately my stories will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. For me, reading is entertainment, a way to escape this crazy insane world. If a book leaves me feeling sad, mad or gut wrenched, it is not for me. There is enough gut-wrenching sadness in this world, I don’t need to read about it too.

I started writing 3 years ago, and have no plans on stopping. So keep your eye on me because with the help of some amazing people and my wonderful fans, this girl is going to be on the New York Times Best Seller’s list someday.

The worst moment of Micah’s life was when Ella nearly died in his arms. Her miraculous recovery should have been the start of their future. Unfortunately, a new demonic heritage, the Shadow Agency’s corruption and Julian, the vampire who turned Ella, are testing their relationship.

Ella has forgiven, but not forgotten, the fact that Micah once plunged a dagger through her heart. Everything with Micah is passion, excitement and an uncontrollable desire to explore his body in a variety of very satisfying ways. But as buried secrets, ongoing lies and murderous deceptions pile up, Ella is reminded that she and Micah’s relationship was based on a curse. In order to forge a future together, Ella and Micah will have to face down their personal demons—and prove that love and trust are more than just words.

Angie – ☆☆☆☆☆

This is the second book in the series, if you haven’t read Dark Cravings and Dark Innocence you should read those before reading Dark Secrets. Micah and Ella have been together several months and things are getting tense. They each wonder if the bond between them is the only thing keeping them together or if they really would be together without the bond. Julian is once again causing issues and so is Richard. Micah is keeping secrets from Ella and she is devastated, she fears he has cheated on her when that is further from the truth. These two must learn to trust each other and their feelings for each other in order to not only survive but stay together. This was an awesome story yet again! It is my new favorite paranormal series and I can’t wait to read Castro’s story next!

Angela – ☆☆☆☆☆

I’m freaking speechless. I don’t even know where to start. Dark Secrets is the continuation of Ella and Micah’s story and it may be even better than Dark Cravings. There is so much that goes on in this book that I don’t even know where to begin. I had to check the blurb to make sure I don’t reveal any spoilers and now realize I can’t talk about most of the stuff I want to talk about because it could really spoil the book for those who haven’t read it yet. UGH! That is seriously frustrating.

Getting the easy stuff out of the way, the sex between Micah and Ella is even HOTTER this time around. They’ve spent enough time together and have learned what the other likes, so ALL the right buttons are pushed. Seriously hot! But the sex wasn’t the only thing that nearly made my Kindle go up in flames and yes, you’ll have to read it to understand that. Both Micah and Ella learn some painful truths in this installment of the Dark series and their love is tested more than once in this book. I won’t lie, I was concerned as the end of the book neared and I didn’t see how Ms. Pryce was going to be able to resolve the situation in time. It seems that each time they get one loose end tied up, another one (or two) seems to unravel. While there is some resolution, there are still unanswered questions – this is a good thing because that means more Micah and Ella!

Again, the author took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. There were moments that I was smiling so big that my face hurt and moments when the emotional devastation a character felt was so strong, I couldn’t help but hurt for them. Oddly, the never-ending stream of upheavals that Micah and Ella have to address in this book never felt contrived or forced to me. I’ve read books in which it felt like the author had a checklist of plot points they seemed compelled to include, thus making a storyline feel forced. That was so not the case here. Ms. Pryce creates a story that is action-packed, sexy as sin, and entertaining from beginning to end. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

Ella Grey’s life sucks. A half-breed vampire, she does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He’s hot, dangerous and knows it. He’d be just Ella’s type if he weren’t likely to kill her the moment she put a toe out of line.

A chance encounter with a succubus changes everything. From the second the succubus’ spell washes over them, Ella and Micah are helpless to keep their hands off one another. The sex, when it’s not leaving them on the verge of death, is earth shattering and for the first time in ages Ella is connected with someone on a level she’d feared lost forever. But a dangerous prophecy has been set into motion, and if Ella’s not careful it’ll pull her straight from Micah’s arms and into the deepest bowels of the underworld.

***UPDATE 3/31/14*****
I wrote my original review first thing after reading the book. I feel like I should update this review because I could NOT stop thinking about this book all day and all night after I wrote my review. I could still “smell” the blood, I could still “feel” Micah’s touch. I just couldn’t stop feeling/thinking about this book. This very rarely happens to me. Yes, I have read lots of books and loved them and even had book hangovers but for some reason this book just DID something to me. It was my first book by Madeline Pryce and it will not be my last. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and any and all other books by Madeline.

Half vampire/half human, demons, and hot steamy sex, how could you not love this book!!! From the first chapter you could tell that Ella and Micah had the chemistry and man did it only get more intense after that! I love the love/hate relationship that they have and it just works for them.

Characters: Ella and Micah’s chemistry was apparent from the start and I felt like I was right there in the book with them!
Sex: Holy hotness the sex was so good in this book
Religious: NO
Would I recommend to others: HELL YES!!
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Paranormal/Erotic/Romance
Would I read more by this author: No doubt about it…yes

I am so mad that it took me so long to finally make time to read this book. Oh, it was sooooooo good. Dark Cravings is the first book in the Dark series and the beginning of Ella and Micah’s story. You know the old saying, “it’s a fine line between love and hate.” Well that is Ella and Micah’s relationship as the book opens.

Ella is a half-turned vampire still working for the Shadow Agency – an agency whose sole mission is to eliminate vampires and other demons. The only reason she’s still breathing is because her family helped to found the agency and she’s one of the best Shadow Hunters they’ve had in years – and that was before her acquisition of the supernatural skills that accompanied her partial transformation. In a word, Ella is bada$$. She is one of the best female lead characters I have read in a long time when it comes to paranormal romances. Those she cares for, she cares for deeply and her loyalty and protective instinct toward them borders on suicidal at times.

Of course, with such a strong female lead, you absolutely must have an equally strong alpha male lead. And Ms. Pryce succeeds in this challenge superbly as Micah is the perfect yin to Ella’s yang. The chemistry between the two is staggering. Even when they hated each other you could feel the pull between them, so it was no surprise to me that when they were finally compelled to mate, it was intense. Oh to have been a fly on that hotel room wall. Four days? Really? Although we are only treated to snippets from their first encounter (they were under a spell and couldn’t remember it all), they certainly make up for it each and every time thereafter. I don’t have a word for how hot the sex was.

But Dark Cravings isn’t all romance and erotica; the book also has some serious action going on and there are definitely some underlying storylines that I look forward to reading more of in future installments. I am ashamed to say that until now, I have only read one of Ms. Pryce’s Ellora’s Cave Quickies. But that is soon to be rectified as I am about to indulge in a Madeline Pryce reading binge. Up next is Dark Innocence and I am so looking forward to reading Hannah’s story. I cannot wait to devour the rest of the Dark series as this author can weave a wonderful story that balances erotica and paranormal romance perfectly.

Dark Secrets Teaser4

Dark Innocence Cover

Hannah Grey will do anything to escape the tortured memories haunting her. Every breath brings back the pain, the fear and the unbearable knowledge that she’ll never be the once-perfect girl everyone thought her to be. When the self-destructive fog of drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex starts to clear, Dante, a lion shifter sexier than sin itself, emerges through the darkness ready to rescue her for the second time in so many weeks.

In the safety of Dante’s embrace, Hannah allows herself to become the woman she’s always wanted to be—smart, sexy, capable and empowered. His every touch electrifies. His hot, hungry kisses set her senses ablaze. As Dante masters her body, Hannah finally finds the strength to master her fears.

Perfection shatters as threats from a mysterious vampire escalate from anonymous phone calls to violent encounters. When Hannah’s enemies unite, placing both her and Dante in mortal peril, she’s going to need her newfound strength to face the coming darkness and save the man she loves.

Dark Innocence picks up where Dark Cravings left off and is about Hannah and Dante. I loved Dante in book #1 just because he said “darlin’” – that word just melts my heart! This novella sheds light on Hannah and all she has gone thru and is going thru. Dante just makes your heart melt, he is so loving and caring and when he shifts you actually can “feel” it, well, at least I can. Madeline is such a gifted writer, she draws you in and keeps you right there in the moment.

Characters: Dante is so loveable and protective and just made you want to have your own lion! As much as Hannah and her reckless ways got on my nerves I loved her anyway, I know why she was doing those things but I still wanted to slap her LOL!
Sex: Holy hotness the sex was so good in this book. At one point I had to step away from the kindle I was getting so hot!
Religious: NO
Would I recommend to others: HELL YES!!
More than one book in the series: Yes and I can’t wait for the next one! HURRY PLEASE MADELINE!!!!
Genre: Paranormal/Erotic/Romance
Would I read more by this author: No doubt about it…yes

 

Angela – ☆☆☆☆☆

Oh my goodness that was hot! I want to know where I can find my very own lion. Ms. Pryce can write some sexy vampires but I think that Dante just might exceed them in sexy points and not just because he’s hot.

In Dark Innocence we find Hannah not coping well with life post-Lizbeth’s abduction. She’s trying to numb herself with alcohol, drugs, and sex. Unfortunately her eidetic memory makes any reprieve short and her actions just add another guilt-laden memory to her suffering. Fortunately she is able to call Dante to help her out of her most recent predicament as they have remained in contact since he helped rescue her. That Dante is the only person in her life who knows the depths to which she has sunk, yet still comes to her aid when she calls only adds to the feeling of safety his presence instills in Hannah. It is the manner in which he handles Hannah that increases his hotness quotient exponentially. He is gentle with her when she needs it but is not afraid to deal out a little tough love and it is this tough love that helps her to get her life back under control – no more alcohol, no more drugs, no more men … well, only one man. May I say that I loved Hannah’s attempted seduction? I would still be laughing were it not for the nail-biting situation Hannah found herself in immediately afterwards.

As the danger Hannah faces intensifies she finds herself under Dante’s protection and, even more importantly, under Dante! Thank you Ms. Pryce for making Dante a lion shifter! Everyone knows that cats love their cream and Dante is no exception … oh my that man sure made my kitty purr. I appreciated that Dante spent so much time being intimate with Hannah, engaging in some serious foreplay, and made sure she was ready before they finally went all the way – and you’ll have to read the book to know exactly what I’m referring to.

As with Dark Cravings, there is a lot of action as Hannah finds herself the target of a stalker. And despite the fact that she has been sheltered from the dark side of the world by her family for much of her life, with Dante’s help, she finds her inner strength and proves that she has Grey blood running through her veins too. Again Ms. Pryce writes with just the right balance of erotica and paranormal romance. I’m looking forward to reading Dark Secrets next.

Mr. X by Clarissa Wild is Now Available

Mr X RDL Banner

He’s come to kill me.

I’m a user and abuser of my own body. In the darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.

Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.

I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X; the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

*Author Note: This is not your average romance story. Some people will kill for love.*

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, breath depravation, strong language, drugs and alcohol, and graphic violence, which may be considered triggers.

Mr X Teaser2

WRRT Banner Excerpt

Walking to the bed, I try not to pay attention to her. Try not to notice her fearful eyes and shaking hands as I tear the blanket away from her. I hold up the gun and point it at her.

“Are you going to kill me now?”

“Yes.”

She swallows, tears flooding her eyes. I refuse to let it get to me.

“I understand …” she murmurs. “Please, let me watch the sunrise.”

“What?”

“The sunrise. I want to see it one last time.”

My mind suddenly stops working. Baffled. That’s what I am. This one thing she asks of me peels away the layers of protection I built around myself long ago. The request is one that I didn’t expect of her, even though I know her so well. I never imagined she’d still want to watch it come up. Memories long forgotten, but the desire to repeat past experiences still linger. She is still that same person.

Only in a much more fucked-up way.

I shake my head and sigh again. I jerk at the ropes, undoing them quickly, as I don’t want to waste any time. I refuse to let this get to me. I have a job to do. This needs to be done, end of story. She needs to die. I will be the one to pull the trigger.

Mary – ☆☆☆☆☆

Mr. X is a dark story that is filled with pain, hatred, deceit, lust, revenge and yes, love. Jay works in the local strip club. It is what she has chosen, drugs and addiction will lead you down a dangerous path and sometimes you get a second chance. But when the second chance is Mr. X, do you really think it is better? Mr. Z has been sent to kill her by a person who has taken a hit out on her. Mr. X works for the organization and killing is what they do. While Mr. X loves the thrill of the kill, listening to their screams and begging him not to kill them, to him it is almost a pleasurable as sex itself. So when he gets to Jay, he takes her captive to keep others in the organization from killing her. Now they are hiding because he is hunted as well as she is. Jay has a plan, get Mr. X to think she has accepted his protection until the time is right for her to escape. Their past will surprise you but it will help you understand why Mr. X is the way he is. When the time comes, will she be able to leave him? Can Mr. X ever let her go? What will she do when she finds out who put the hit on her?

This is a dark read and if you like that kind of story, then please read this one, it is worth it. I have read many stories from Clarissa Wild and I love her writing style and I loved this one too.

 

Diana – ☆☆☆

2.5- 3 Stars!

Dang. Dang. Dang. I’m so disappointed that I couldn’t connect to this book. It had PROMISE, I’m frustrated. This is a story I should’ve LOVED, sadly I just didn’t. There’s tons of suspense to keep you on your toes, but for me it was all predictable. (I might be the minority here, it’s probably me not the book.) It felt repetitive and childish. Ok enough about what I didn’t like.

For dark readers, I think most will love this story. A sadistic captor out for revenge. What’s not to love with a captor story? There’s twists and turns that will leave you gasping, I’m sure. (I knew it was coming) I don’t know, give it a try. There isn’t enough reviews to read, so I’m confused, thinking it’s just me. Or maybe I’m just sad that I didn’t love this.

This is definitely for dark readers!

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser12

WRRT Banner Excerpt

That First Kiss by J.C. Valentine

His finger stroked the inside of her thigh, seeking higher ground as his thoughts rolled forward. Piper’s eyes trained on his face, hanging on his every word. “I didn’t intend for things to get as heated as they did, but as soon as I touched you, I needed more. I couldn’t help myself. You possessed me.”

The glazed look in her eye told him that she was remembering that night as vividly as he was. Placing both hands on the cushions on either side of her body, he hemmed her in, bringing their faces so close that when he spoke, his lips grazed hers. “The way you danced that night, pushing that sweet little ass of yours against me. It’s haunted me, Piper,” he whispered.  “You need to understand, I tried to resist you, just like I have been trying to resist you, but you drive me crazy. When I’m with you, it takes everything in me to stay away. All I think about, all I dream about is burying myself inside you.”

Piper licked her lips and Tate zeroed in on the tiny movement. “I want to suck those plump lips into my mouth,” he murmured. Shifting, he brought his knee up so it rested on the couch alongside hers and hovered over her. Her face was flushed and her chest rose and fell heavily. She wasn’t unaffected.

“You need to leave,” she said weakly.

Tate chose that moment to drop his head into the crook of her neck, nuzzling her. She smelled faintly of roses, and his cock jumped at her soft, feminine scent. “Do you want me to leave?” he asked softly.

He could feel her softening beneath him, her breath coming out in shudders as he skimmed his lips lightly up her neck to her ear, where he licked the pulse beating rapidly beneath her sensitive skin. “Yes.”

The single word left her on a stilted breath, only solidifying his need to get inside her. “I don’t think you do,” he murmured. With sure hands, Tate grabbed the backs of her thighs and yanked her toward him, seating her firmly beneath him on her back with her legs spread wide.

His Wicked Games by Ember Casey

Shannan – ☆☆☆☆

This one started a little slow for me, but once it got going it really got going. Hot Sexy little read. More than the typical billionaire book. There was sex, but there was romance too. Lily is feisty and knows what she wants. Will Calder stand in the way of that? Good Read!

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser2

Fierce by Clarissa Wild

Mary – ☆☆☆☆

I loved this story. Autumn is on the bus headed to her first day at college, being the nerd and proud of it, she is a little afraid of the big world outside the bus. When she talks herself into getting off the bus, she is hit with a big gust of wind coming from a leaf blower. And her always unruly hair now has leaves stuck in it. She tries to avoid looking at the people around her but she looks directly into a beautiful pair of grey eyes and she can’t look away. The grey eyes turn out to belong to Hunter Bane, bad boy, sex god and gorgeous. Autumn wants to know more about him and her best friend Evie doesn’t like him and wants her to stay away from him. He seems to be pulled to her and the sparks fly when they touch. He has secrets and if Autumn learns them, will she run from him? Can he protect her from what he is doing? This story is a great way to spend your time, a nerdy girl and a bad boy with a few twists that you will not be expecting. I love Clarissa’s writing style and looking forward to her next story.

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser3

That First Kiss by J.C. Valentine

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆☆

Piper Donovan needs a job – bad. She’s running on fumes and if she doesn’t get this job, she’s done for – no choice but to head back to Alabama. She had left that small town with no intention of ever going back there to live, she was meant for the big city and with any luck, she’d stay here.

Tate Larson needs an assistant, or a keeper, either way he needs help. Some people may think he’s unreasonable, rude and downright nasty, but in his opinion, everyone should have the same work ethic as he does — and want to wait on him hand and foot.

Piper gets the job and goes out with her girls to celebrate, and catching the eye of the hottie with the body and takes him up on his invitation to for hot sex in the women’s bathroom.

Imagine both their surprise when Piper shows up for her first day on the job and the hottie is none other than Tate Larson, her new boss. Tate can’t believe his luck — sure he’d been thinking about her since their hook-up but that doesn’t mean he wants to work with her. Piper doesn’t want to work with Tate any more than he does with her, but for different reasons. The hottie from the club has been replaced by an irritable a$$ that makes her want to hop on the first bus back to small town, Alabama.

Jump aboard the crazy train that tells the story of Piper and Tate. Lots of real life scenarios mixed with misunderstandings, denials and lust.

This was the first book that I’ve read by Ms. Valentine, but it won’t be the last.

Slow Burn by V.J. Chambers

Shannan – ☆☆☆☆

3.5 stars

There are so many twists and turns in this one, I loved it. I love the “real” feel Chambers gives her characters. This kept me questioning if they ever were truly going to get their HEA. Love the action wrapped around a love story. Definitely going to check out the other titles from Chambers.

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser5

Layers Deep by Lacey Silks

Shannan – ☆☆☆

I had high hopes for this one but it fell flat for me. If you are going to paint the main character as a strong female, keep her a strong female throughout. It seems like she lost some of her edge half way through. Don’t get me wrong it was very well written and the sex scenes were hot! I need to see where this one goes I will be picking up book #2 in the series.

 

Mary – ☆☆☆☆

OMG, WOW what a great story. Allie is a police detective with a painful past that she and her mother fear every day. Tristan owns a personal securities company that specializes in other types of protection and rescues. Allie wants to work for Tristan to help rid her of the problem from her past but she is attracted to Tristan from the moment he steps into the Police auditorium looking for a new hire. And Tristan wants Allie. He follows her, knows about her past and needs her help to rescue someone from his past. Can she work for him without falling for him? Will he keep her when he learns her secret?

**THERE IS A KILLER CLIFFHANGER** and I was screaming NO! you can’t end it at this point. I need more now! This is a first for me by Lacey Silks and I loved it. I can’t wait for book 2 (Layers Peeled). Great job Lacey!

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser6

Learning Curves by Olivia Rigal

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆☆

This series (two episodes are provided) is set in Paris and starts at a Cookery School; already two major pluses for me. There is an amazing amount of detail about all of the characters, which submerges you into their world very quickly, and had me worrying and smiling in equal measure. I was a Peter shipper, until the elderly landlady Caroline uncovered some of his proclivities. Now I am not so sure… will have to get the next book to find out how it all turns out! This is a fun, steamy read, with something for everyone.

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser7

Can’t Shake You by Molly McLain

Veronica – ☆☆☆☆

Can’t Shake You is an excellent example of a small town traditional romance. It was a joy to read. Good build up lots of story and different characters, a bit of mystery with realistic drama.

The romance and steamy scenes between Josh and Carissa is sizzling hot but there is more to story than just their relationship. This is romance for grownups and I loved it so much I’ve already purchased Can’t Hold Back (River Bend #1.5).

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser8

His Indecent Lessons by Sky Corgan

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆☆

This is the first in a series – which splits depending on what you would prefer to read – erotica or BDSM – which I think is a clever idea, and can give you twice as much of the characters, if you like them. The first introduces us to Skylar. She is newly enrolled in college and ready for an adventure. Possibly unwisely, she falls for one of her professors, who agrees to give her private lessons in sex. Combine this with a high school friend who is desperate to take things further and Skylar gets into all kind of tangles! There are a whole host of ethical issues which she wrestles with too, which are interesting to observe.

This is a fun, sexy romp, which starts Skylar on a voyage of discovery.

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser9

Sorority Pledge by Daizie Draper

Shannan – ☆☆☆☆

Review done on books 1-6.

Sorority Pledge follows Addison throughout of her journey of finding herself. She has a desire to submit, she is a submissive in search of a Dom. Addison is sure she finds the perfect person to fill that role. Logan knows he has a darker side deep within, but he tries to keep that part of himself hidden. The six books follow Logan and Addison as they find their new positions in a D/s relationship. It’s naughty, it’s erotic, it’s kinky, it’s fun, it’s sexy. Good read! There are four books within this series that I must go get!

 

Red Hot Obsessions Teaser10

Rae Omnibus by Blair Babylon

Angie – ☆☆☆☆☆

This box set is jam packed with hot alphas, hot sex and hot women! I really enjoyed Billionaires in Disguise: Rae. This book was about Reagan who was flunking a class in college and needed to find a good paying job since her scholarship was going to be pulled. Rae’s friends tell her to go to the Devilhouse, she can make $2,000 a week there. When Rae’s friends take her there for a party and to introduce her to The Dom, she has no idea that the blonde hottie SHE banged up against the wall was THE Dom. This was an awesome series book and it kept your attention the whole time and made you want to keep reading. I loved Wulf and how humble he was and how he just wanted to be loved for him.

Characters: Well written and easy to relate to on most levels
Sex: Hot and steamy
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Box set
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes
