Fate Book (Fate Book Series #1) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

My Rating: Four stars !

Series: First book in the Fate Book series

Sex Scenes: Yes.

Subject: Falling for a Stranger...

A New Adult, Contemporary Romance from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff.
Dakota Dane is about to tell a lie she’ll wish she hadn't. Because her lie is dangerous, sexy, and just showed up on campus, angry as hell and looking for her...

Ugly duckling Dakota Dane has a new boyfriend. He’s male-model gorgeous, built to perfection, wealthy, and smart. He is also a lie. As in, 100% fabricated. Does it matter that Dakota has a perfectly good reason for making him up? Not really. Not when Dakota’s made-up boyfriend shows up in the flesh.

So is she crazy? All signs point to maybe. But the walking, talking enigma with the deadly vibe isn’t about to give her any answers or let her out of his sight. And with college just around the corner, Dakota fears her dreams of a bright future have just collided with a dark rabbit hole…

My Review:

This one was an Amazon freebie and totally worth it!

Dakota is young and unhappy, her life isn't going as she planned, she needs to changes things up but she never thought things could get so out of control with one little lie.

Her whole experience is hilarious, she has no idea whats going on and she drives herself crazy trying to find out how he is there.

This book is super fun and the story line captures you, I couldn't wait to see what happened next.

The sexual tension between the characters is good and also really funny because of the absurdity of it all.

How can you know how you feel when you don't even know whats going on, and if the guy is real or you are just going crazy !!!??

Can't wait for the next book !

Big Rock (Big Rock #1) by Lauren Blakely

My Rating: Five stars !

Series: First book in the Big Rock series. NO cliffhanger 

Sex Scenes: Yes.

Subject: Falling for your best friend.

It's not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It's definitely the SIZE of the boat too. 
And I've got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big c*&k.

You might think I'm an a*&hole. I sound like one, don’t I? I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse.

Guess what? You haven't heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind. 

The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.

And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering orgasmic cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets.

But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her.

What the fuck have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?

BIG ROCK is a standalone, dirty romance novel written from the guy’s POV by NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

My Review

I've had this book pending for a while since it was Book of the month in my book reading club on January, so here I go !

I loved them from the start.... scratch that the first few lines of the book left me thinking, okay he is an a*#@#@hole so that's that... BUT he really surprised me, not only when he described his best friend, but by the way he took care of her, he was a gentleman.

Him being set on not falling in love was regular guy stuff and he fell so hard and so fast that there's was no going back.

Charlotte was the cutest character and by the way he described her ... damn ! like she was perfection in a little package and We all wish to be seen that way by a man.

The couch scene....

Not even words for that, the sex scenes in general were crazy ! He is such a hot guy, the sex between them is SO GOOD!

I don't want to spoil anything, but just overall a fun sexy book and he was a romantic after all, he just had some BIG equipment !

Blackbird (an Online Romance) by Fran Seen

My Rating: Four Stars

Series: Well its part of the Online Romance series but the books are not connected. 

Sex Scenes: Yes.

Subject: Online Romance, love in a Romeo and Juliet kind of way !

What do a full-blooded Cherokee and a law student have in common? A Wi-Fi signal, their shared morbid interest: cemetery porn, and familial obligations keeping them from meeting. 
Six years ago, I met Blackbird on an internet forum, drawn in by our shared interest: cemetery porn. We chatted every single day, until Blackbird vanished, leaving no indication he ever existed at all. 
Armed with only a name and mailing address, I journey to Cherokee, North Carolina, home of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, to discover if Blackbird is alive. What I uncover in the land of blue smoke is beyond anything I imagined, and the faceless stranger on the other side of my computer screen is a harborer of puzzling secrets and unsavory truths. 
Should I sever our connection for good? 
Or should I stay and weave my way through Cherokee culture and tradition, in hopes of unearthing the man behind the keyboard?

My Review:

I got this book by the author for an honest review and even though it wasn't as good as LoneWolff it was an Amazing book !

The Characters in this book are closer to each others age, and they don't have all those lies from the beginning which made it easier at first.

They seem to connect really good, but I missed the getting to know each other, and by that I mean that I was hoping a little more insight as why they fell for each other.

That being said, I loved Blackbird character, he was strong and sexy, and she literally fell to his feet (which was hilarious BTW).

The Sex scenes were crazy good, he was such an animalistic guy that there's no way in hell not to love him !

She was kind of a weird character for me, at first she was so weak and absent from her own life, and then she just took over the seduction like a lioness...Only to run away like a scare little kitten.

Both of them had a hangup about who they were supposed to be in life and who they really wanted to be... but they found a way to figure it all out.

Alexa Riley: Trailer Park Virgin, The Virgin Duet & My New Step-Dad...

Well, I started with one of Alexa Riley and couldn't put them down so, first stop:

Trailer Park Virgin
Rating: 5 stars
Rick's been raising little Gracie for the past five years. She even calls him Daddy, but recently things have started to change, and that name has started to have a whole different feel to it. 
Ty's lived with Rick since he lost his parents in a car accident. Then Gracie came into their lives and the world seemed to light up, but the brotherly feelings he once had are now long forgotten as little Gracie has turned into a woman. 
Gracie doesn't know what to do with her feelings for Rick and Ty: the two men who once felt like a father and brother to her. They've been her whole world since her mom skipped town, leaving her all alone in a trailer park. But something has to change. She wants them both, and she'll have them one way or another. 

My Review

All of the books are super taboo, that being said the first one is about a stepdaughter (who’s mom was never in the picture… so don’t worry) and her step- father and step- brother.

The sex scenes are dirty and good, I Just loved it! 

I didn’t need any more storyline it was just good smut.

My New Step-Dad

Rating: 5 stars
I shouldn't want him, but I do. 

I've got one week to get through until my mother’s estate clears, and then I'll be free to go. 

All I've got to do is keep my hands off my new step-dad, Bruce. But that's easier said than done. 

I shouldn't want her, but I do. 

I can't remember the last time I touched a woman. Heck, I can't remember the last time I touched myself. But ever since little Sophie showed up, I can't think of anything but claiming her. 

Forbidden love and secret obsessions will have you begging for the climax. 

Warning: You can beg all you want...Bruce won't be forced. 

My Review

The second book was about a stepdaughter too (in this case mom died before he even met her), so she moves in with step- daddy and things get CRAZY!!!

This book was probably my favorite of the three, the sexual tension is perfect and the almost sex scenes drive you insane!!!!

The Virgin Duet
Rating: 4 stars
A gorgeous, obsessive, billionaire alpha. 

A curvy, sassy bombshell from the wrong side of the tracks. 

Both virgins... 

When Becs and Bray make an arrangement, they have no idea what it will lead to - sexual desires and lust that cannot be contained. 

Will Bray let chaos rule his perfect world? 

Will Becs let love into her cold heart? 

Will Kindles ignite from the sexual heat? There's only one way to find out... 

Warning: Flaming Kindles may cause serious injuries. Please read responsibly

My Review

Last but not least, this book was about some billionaire that falls for a regular girl, but he has some issues and has to get over them to be with her. 
And both of them are virgins, which we know from the title.
This book has a little bit of action and the story line is more developed than the other two.

Overall the three books are fast reads and have some steamy sex scenes, if that’s what you are in the mood for,  give them a chance.

Biker's Bride: A Bad Boy Romance (Demons MC) by B.B. Hamel

My Rating: Five Hot Stars

Series: Maybe and MC Demons series? please say yes !!

Sex Scenes: Yes.

Subject: Death, Motorcycles, hot bikers, MC.

I never wanted to be owned by a biker.
I’m a good person, a normal college girl. But when I witness a gang murder, my future hangs in the balance.
Nobody can save me. Except maybe the cocky a**hole from my past.
Ford Cook is a hard man. He leaves waves of violence and broken hearts everywhere he rides. His tough body is covered in tattoos and muscles, and he doesn’t care how many skulls he cracks to get what he wants.
And in order to keep me safe, he expects me to become his bride.
Now I’m claimed by the man who left me so many years ago. I hate him for what he did to me, but I need him to save my life.
Even though my new husband is an arrogant bastard, I can’t help but stare at his ripped body. He knows what I’m thinking, and he’s going to make me say it.
I want him, but I hate him so much.
I’m not sure how long I can take it. I need to play the part of a biker’s bride, or else get handed over to the people that want me dead. 

My Review:
I got this book for an honest review by the author, and B.B. this is the first non stepbrother book of yours I've read and I LOVED IT !

As always, the strong, hot, dark and mysterious main character was
He was bad and he wanted her in a crude sexy way.
The way she "fought" it was funny, like.... yeah girl we know you can't last long!!!

The story line is really intriguing, I'm currently in love with Sons of Anarchy, and this book was right up my alley.

The different bikers, each with a crazy way and personality made me feel in a real MC.

Caralee was a little weak for me as a character, she came up strong at first but then kind of gave up and just gave in to Ford and the club controlling her, I DONT blame her !

Sugar Daddy, by Sawyer Bennett

My Rating: Five (this book was crazyyy good) Stars

Series: Yes, book #1 in the Sugar Bowl series

Sex Scenes: Yes.

Subject: Secret, Lies and Love.

Release day: my 24th

Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free! 


Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner.

The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the naïve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever.

My Review:

I got this book for an honest review on Netgalley, I already knew I would read it just based on that amazing cover, then I saw it was a Sawyer Bennett book, and the blurb just captured me!

The characters are AMAZING, they all have some secrets in their pasts and that makes them even more interesting.

Sela starts as a broken girl but once she finds a new purpose she transforms herself into this strong captivating woman.

That is what attracts beck, he sees the strong facade and then gets glimpses of what's behind.

The energy between them is huge from the start and we get to see her change once again when she begins to free herself from her demons, but some of those need to be faced and reality comes back knocking on their fairy tale's door.

The book has a strong message about overcoming your fears and insecurities, even though in her case it was a huge trauma, she was finding a way to move on.

The sex scenes are just crazy good ! But everything kind of gets tainted by all the lies, I caught myself getting mad at her at times, like... NOW TELL HIM ! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE.!!! 

I guess that's what makes this a great story, the book allows us to connect with the characters on a deeper level.

THAT ENDING !!!!! I was screaming at my kindle, yeah I got so caught up with the book that I didn't even realice it was almost over until I turned the page and there was NO MORE !!!!

I need to know what happened !!!!

Can't wait for the next book.

Raw and Dirty by Violet Blaze

My Rating: Five Stars
Series: Yes, book #1 Bad Boy's MC Trilogy.
Sex Scenes: Of course YES!
Subject: Love, crazy good sex and MC business

Make nice with the President of the Alpha Wolves Motorcycle Club.

Yeah right.

It was what my job description called for—I just never realized exactly how nice I needed to be.
I certainly never expected to find myself twisted up and tangled in the raw, dirty world of an outlaw motorcycle club … or in the sexy, tattooed hands of the man in charge.

Royal McBride is a jerk—but a jerk with a swoon worthy accent, a big bike, and big … well, other things.

I didn't think falling in love with him would threaten my life. His life.
That we'd both risk losing everything we hold dear.

The mayor's daughter … an outlaw MC president.
It's a match made in heaven … a match tested in hell. (less)

My Review:

I got this book for an honest review by the publishers and I recommend!

If you love MC stories this is the book for you! I haven't read anything else by the author and I have to say I fell in love with her writing and her characters.

Lyric is just trying to do her job and she meets Royal and nothing will ever be the same.

I got captured by them on the first chapter ! I love when that happens, they had this kind of funny and steamy first interaction. Usually when a books has that, I get hooked and can't stop reading, it's really an important thing in a story.

The sex scenes are extremely good and raw,maybe not for everyone.

She starts as a strong, independent woman, but at the end it kind of looks like she is leaving everything behind, can't wait for the next one.

Yeah, I need to know what happens, that's how you know you've got a good story.

Tested by Her Web Master (Web Master #2) by Normandie Alleman

My Rating: Four Stars

Series: Yes, book #2 on the Web Master series

Sex Scenes: Yes, lots of BDSM play.

Subject: D and S relationship what happens after the Happily ever after.

He's my addiction, my love—my life.
He's my Dominant—my everything.
He's changed me, and I never want to go back.

But now, he's asking for too much.
Going too far.
It's out of my comfort zone--not who I am.

I'll swallow my pride and face my fears
But something tells me he has ulterior motives for this extreme request, 
and I will get to the bottom of it. 

That is, if I can pass his test.

My Review

I got this book for an Honest Review by the author and I was really excited to read about what happened next for  Sophie and Quentin.

The reason I chose the subject of the book as "What happens after the happily ever after" is that this book was exactly that.
It reminded me of the last movie in the series Before Sunrise, "Before midnight", when we realice that the characters we loved aren't perfect and happily ever after is so much harder to achieve that what we wanted to believe.

I still enjoyed the book, the sessions between them, and the ones between Sophie and BA were amazing, and I confess I had a nagging feeling about BA ( will not spoil!!!!).

Finding out Quentin wasn't that strong and perfect was like realizing your parents are the tooth Fairy, but it had to be done, since stories are about real people, and real people are not perfect.

I really think she overreacted, if you love him, then you get why he did what he did, and then you fight for him.

On the other hand, her choice is what would probably make them or break them.

Last but not least, the sessions in the book are on the masochist side so if you don't enjoy that kind of kink then this is not the book for you.

Beautiful Secret (Beautiful Bastard #4) by Christina Lauren

My Rating: Five Stars

Series: Yes, book #4 on the Beautiful Bastard 

Sex Scenes: Of course YES!

Subject: Falling in love and surviving

When Ruby Miller’s boss announces he’s sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she’s shocked. As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she’s professionally up to the task. The part that’s throwing her is where she’ll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside—and staying in a hotel with—Niall Stella, her firm’s top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.

Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they’ve built up fall down? 

My Review
I LOVED this book, the characters were perfect, and in my opinion I wouldn’t change a thing!
Some people might find Ruby Stalker-ish but not me… I remember falling in love when I was younger and doing the exact same things she did, knowing everything about the guy and fantasizing about different scenarios where we would meet and kiss and more.
She made me laugh so much, the awkward way in which she tried to act normal around him.
He was Mr. Darcy, it was a perfect way to describe him, the innocent way in which he approached sexuality blew my mind, and it was sooo good! I had no idea I would be attracted to that and I surprisingly was!
Because of what I just mentioned, the Sex scenes were so different, they enjoyed every little bit of foreplay and they connected in a deeper level.
We get to watch him free himself bit by bit; he changes so much as a character that by the end of the book we don’t recognize this sexual man he has become.

I guess what this book gave me other than an amazing love story was that we might be afraid to let go of the things we know, and what we are used to, but sometimes the reward of doing that is as great as finding your other half.
Finding real happiness is not a small thing, if you are unhappy you have to change it.

Beautiful Beloved (Beautiful Bastard #3.6) by Christina Lauren

My Rating: Five Stars

Series: Yes, book #3.6 on the Beautiful Bastard 

Sex Scenes: Of course YES!

Subject: Love and relationships after the babies.

In Beautiful Stranger , finance whiz Sara Dillon met the irresistibly sexy Brit, Max Stella, at a New York City club. Through the series we’ve watched them learn to balance commitment with their less than private brand of playfulness. In Beautiful Beloved, Max and Sara take it to the next step. But the question is: Will they be able to find a balance between the wild sexcapades they aren’t ready to retire, and the demands of parenthood that come along with their new Beautiful bundle of joy? Parenthood: it’s not for the weak of heart.

My Review:

Well, it's been a while since I read about this crazy group of people, and I missed them!

I've had this book on my to-read list for too long! So don't tell anyone but I'm thinking beautiful bastard marathon for the next days !

Back to the book, we get to read about Sarah and Max again, their life has changed radically, a baby shifted them out of their comfort zone and they can't seem to find a way back.

I really enjoyed this book, the way the author describes parenthood is funny and real, I am not a mother yet but I've seen friends struggling with the same things.

Probably the most important message this book has given me is that even tough a baby changes everything in our everyday life, it doesn't mean it should change who we are as a person, our desires and wants are still the same, we just have to figure out a new way to accomplish them.

The Baller: A Down and Dirty Football Novel by Vi Keeland

My Rating: Four Stars 
Series: Nope
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Subject: Sports and love.

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all. 
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. 
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. 
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players. 
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football. 
I’d date an athlete. 
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date. 
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.
Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for. Turned out, I was that girl. Simple right? Let’s face it. It never is. There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… 
And this one is ours.

My Review:

This was a fun story to read !
I finished the book in one night, Brody was an amazing character, fun and super sexy.
Like everyone, he had a past and that made him more real to me.
Delilah ( AMAZING name BTW), was a strong woman, who thought she knew what she wanted, that was till she met him.

The MVP brought back some memories she wasn't ready to face just yet, but he also just might have been exactly what she needed.

This book is a easy going love story, yes there is trouble in paradise as always in a good romance book, but there's nothing they can't overcome.

The characters had great chemistry and I connected easily and laughed and cried with them through the book.

I was expecting the well known assh*** that then realices he was in ove with the lady all along, but he actually never behaves as a douche, so he is the PERFECT BOYFRIEND in my book.
