Lauren Blakely - Sinful Longing - Book Review (ARC)


Publisher: Lauren Blakely Books, 2015.
Genre: Erotic romance/ romantic suspense.
Length: 300 pages.


Lauren Blakely delivers the perfect balance of intrigue, suspense and sizzle. The book almost went up in flames! Pull up your skater socks to prepare for this one.

Colin Sloane’s ‘what if girl’ is Elle Mariano. She’s smart, sexy, generous and caring, but she won’t give him anything more than a blissful moment of shared pleasure here and there. It’s not enough. Colin wants into her life, and he’s going to get to her heart through her body. 

Elle is powerless to resist the gorgeous tattooed bad boy. She has her life sorted, and there’s no room for a relationship with a man who has a past. The kind of past she can’t deal with, again. Will she be able to conquer her fears? And will outside forces prove to be too detrimental to a relationship between the two?

Erin Noelle - MILF-Wrong Kind of Love - Book Review (Review Copy)



Publisher: Erin Noelle, 2015.
Genre: Erotica.
Length: 310 pages.

Grayson Daniels is reluctantly back in Georgia after spending ten months studying in Spain. His mother is marrying Grayson’s best friend’s father after two years of them carrying on an affair behind his wife’s back. Yep, his first and only father figure is a chump. He’s less than pleased with his mother, betraying her friend like that, too. At least it will be official when he calls his best friend, Adam, Bro’.

Mia Sullivan is understandably full of flaming anger at wasting twenty years of her life on a lying, cheating piece of scum. She’d never take back getting pregnant in high school, though. Adam is the best thing that ever happened to her. He has encouraged her to take out her anger in the gym and pursue her passion for painting. She is thriving for the first time in years.

When Grayson’s mother kicks him out of home, Mia and Adam gain another housemate. Grayson isn’t the boy she used to know. He has grown up and filled out. Resisting his charm is impossible. He has decided he wants her and she can’t stop from wanting him. She knows it’s not forever, but if they can keep it under wraps she’s going to enjoy it while it lasts. As long as Adam doesn’t find out.


I love Erin Noelle’s writing style. She immerses the reader in her worlds getting us totally engrossed and empathizing with the characters. How could this possibly end well? There are so many intertwined relationships going on, it’s a tangled web these characters weave.

Even though Mia watched Grayson grow up, he has changed. Living abroad has matured him and a man’s body is vastly different from a teenager’s. Mia, herself has become a gym junkie, lost close to twenty pounds and gained back her passion and vibrancy. She is a gorgeous woman. Grayson is mesmerized by her, her banana pancakes, her painting, everything about her. She struggles with the morality of the situation, Grayson is more black and white. They are both consenting adults and ‘good to go’ as far as he’s concerned.

My heat rating on this story is definitely close to nuclear. This pair are insatiable. The lust isn’t overdone or out of place, though. They are carrying on a whirlwind affair after all, but not at the expense of a developing tender, more intimate connection. It’s totally feasible that these two are drawn to each other, the attraction is well crafted with plenty of humour added in. 


But then there’s always Adam. I honestly didn’t know how the author was going to make this work out. The story begins with a sneak peek of the end. The inevitable is a constant tickle of anticipation as you read along trying to figure out how it’s all going to fall into place. As lust turns to love I got more and more anxious about what was going to happen. So much happens!

I loved going along for the ride on this one. So clever. Reead iiiiittttt!

About The Gilded Cuff

Every passion has its price . . .

Journalist Sophie Ryder has been following Emery Lockwood’s story since she was a little girl. There has always been something in his haunted eyes that she couldn’t resist and now, when she’s certain he holds the key to solving a string of kidnappings, she’ll do anything to speak to him. Even if it means venturing deep into the seductive world of the Gilded Cuff, a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island’s Gold Coast and Emery’s personal playground.

From the moment Sophie enters his shadowy, sensual domain, Emery Lockwood knows this tantalizing new little sub was meant to belong to him. However, Sophie wants more from Emery than just pleasure . . . she wants his past. And that is something he isn’t willing to give—no matter who is asking. But every moment he spends with Sophie, Emery feels his control slipping and he knows it’s only a matter of time before he surrenders to her heart, body, and soul.

Read Along – The Gilded Cuff Ch. 13-15

Short Overview of Chapters

This set of three chapters opens with Sophie, the investigative crime journalist finagling having sex with the brooding, sexy, and reclusive billionaire Emery Lockwood. She has just given him his family back after his ears of self-exile and Emery is feeling incredibly close to her. He wants to complete the bond that’s been forming between him and Sophie and now is the perfect time. She gives into her submissive nature and lets him gently dominate her in bed to their mutual satisfaction. 

While Sophie and Emery are getting intimate, Emery’s resident hacker and technology expert, Cody Larson is secretly tracking a bugging device that he found in the house after the assassin/kidnapper broke into Emery’s home to taunt him. Cody follows the bug’s signal to a local bar in town and is drugged and kidnapped by the man he is tracking. When he wakes up, the man tortures him for information about Sophie and Emery and then rigs the old warehouse where he has Cody tied up, to explode after he leaves. 

Hans, Emery’s bodyguard and Cody’s friend, realizes that Cody has been kidnapped and he wakes Emery and Sophie up telling them the bad news. Emery calls his two best friends from childhood Royce and Wes to come and watch over Sophie while he and Hans go rescue Cody. 

While Sophie and Emery’s friends wait for Emery to return safely, Wes’s little sister Hayden arrives and convinces Royce and Wes that they, along with Sophie need to go after Emery since he’s in more danger than they thought.


Favorite Lines

- She wanted to melt into him, merge with the passion he drew forth from her, and be the wild, wanton creature he summoned with his smile, his kiss, and whisky-rough whispers of what he was going to do to her. Bad things. Deliciously bad.

- A lock of burnished gold hair fell into his eyes and lent him a boyish look, not like that of the hardened wealthy recluse who’d insisted he’d never let her inside his heart and soul. That wounded man had vanished. The man above her in bed was fresh with passion and emotion. His hazel eyes were warm as honeyed chestnuts and his lips were just as sweet as he murmured sweet nonsense.

- “Shit, he’s in shock. We’ve got to get him out of here.” Hans grabbed Cody’s body and with a mighty heave, lifted him up over his shoulder in a fireman’s hold.

“Get him to the hospital and come back for me,” Emery said as he checked his own gun and eyed the open door where the only source of light slithered out from the shadows.

Hans paused, hesitation and wariness in his gaze. “Emery…”

“Hans, we always knew it would come to this. I’m not asking you to save him. I’m telling you. So get the hell out of here.”

In that silent moment, Hans studied him with a mixture of pride and regret. After twenty-five years, this could be the end of the line and they both knew it.

“See you on the other side, Emery.”

- A silent scream tore through his mind at the thought of never seeing her again. What he wouldn’t give for one more touch, one more smile. To see her silver eyes looking at him with passion, with something more, something he’d been too afraid to hope for. It was the only thing that mattered now, to see the love shining from her eyes. Was dying really like falling asleep? He was barely aware of drifting away.


Fun Facts and Challenges in writing these chapters:

- There were a lot of fun things about writing this set of chapters. First I got to write the full love scene between Emery and Sophie. It included lots of BDSM but I keep it fairly light since Emery isn’t a very strict Dom and Sophie is only learning to be a submissive. One of my favorite little parts is when Emery strips her down to nothing but then he puts his red tie around her neck as her only item of clothing. It’s sexy and flirty and all too fun! I also loved writing Sophie’s vulnerability here. She reveals her physical scars that she has been hiding from Emery since the beginning of the book. These scars are wounds she got when she was cut by a serial killer years ago that she was trying to expose to the police. They’ve always bothered her and made her a little shy since she doesn’t feel as beautiful or perfect. Emery tells her scars are a sign of strength.

- One of the challenges of these chapters was writing Cody’s kidnap scene. He is take by the evil Antonio, the man who kidnapped Emery and his twin brother Fenn when they were children all those years ago. The tough part of this scene was the torture. I’d never written a torture scene, but Antonio’s character is truly evil and dark and he needed to do something despicable and horrifying to put Emery in danger when he came to rescue Cody. I was a bit squeamish writing the scene but I knew it was necessary to write it the way I did.

- One of my favorite parts of this set was writing the rescue scene with Hans and Emery finding Cody in the warehouse just moments before it blows up. What I love about this scene is that it reveals the depth of emotion between Emery and his loyal bodyguard. Hans has been protecting Emery for twenty-five years, ever since the day he escaped the kidnappers and his parents hired Hans to keep him safe. There is a loyalty, a brotherhood between the two men that can’t be broken, even in the face of impending death. Hans takes Cody’s body to carry him outside and Emery needs to stay inside to find clues about the kidnapper, knowing he might not make it out in time and he tells Hans that they always knew this day might come. I think these types of scenes are incredibly powerful and really give the characters something beyond the simple romance for readers to root for.


Book 2 The Gilded Cage is available now!


About The Gilded Cage

C.L. Parker - Playing Dirty - Book Review (ARC)




Publisher: Randon House Publishing Group, Bantam, 2015.
Genre: Erotic, Contemporary Romance.
Length: 236 pages.

Oh yeah. This book is goooood.

Cassidy Whalen and Shaw Matthews hate each other’s guts. Cassidy thinks Shaw is a playboy given a free ride to the top. Shaw thinks she’s a frigid ball-breaker with a stick in an unmentionable place. These top sports agents work for the same company. They’re supposed to be on the same team, but they bring out a competitive streak in each other that’s about to get fierce.

Their bosses are pitting them against each other to win the contract to represent star quarterback, Denver Rockford. Whoever gets Rockford to sign also gets a partnership in the firm.

These two take competition to another level, willing to play dirty to get the deal. I mean, holy hot sex up against the wall in the rain. He asks her if she’s afraid of heights! I’ll let you figure out that one on your own. *fans self*

Cassidy is a control freak in need of someone to take over the reins for a while and give her some reprieve, but she also needs to be cherished and adored.

Shaw has had to be cunning and self-reliant to get where he is. He’s used to going without to get where he needs to be. What he’s not used to, is having his wants and needs hijacked by a woman.

They’re overflowing with determination to prove themselves and adamant in their denial of any feelings below the surface. The push and pull between them is highly entertaining. It’s all about getting points on the board and gaining an advantage over the other, until it threatens to become more.

What a fabulous bunch of supporting characters. So many interesting personalities I hope we’ll get to know more about.

Aargh, the cliff-hanger. I am extra thankful for this because I want more! This book is funny with the heat level set to sizzling. I can’t wait to read on.
