Objection (Legal Affairs, #1.1)Objection by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, what a delicious treat Sawyer Bennett has in store for us with this series.

“Objection” is the first instalment of Sawyer Bennett's new law series "Legal Affairs" and boy did it start with a bang. There’s definitely no gentle introduction to this storyline and I loved it.

If I Return (The 12 NA's of Christmas)If I Return by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I simply love Sawyer Bennett's Off Series so I waited as long as I possibly could to read this Christmas novella from her.

What started out as a sweet story soon turned into a steamy holiday romance and although one part freaked the bejesus out of me it certainly spiced up my day.

I must admit to preferring Sawyer's other books but don't be put off by me. Sweet Christmas stories don't float my boat but I can't deny this was a well written and thought out piece from Sawyer.

4 Star Review: Ruin (Ruin, #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Ruin (Ruin, #1)Ruin by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I did it, I survived Ruin but not before checking if there was a HEA though. Phew, this was one emotional read. Yes, there was pain but there was also beauty both through words and actions as Wes and his little lamb try to survive the shadows that hang over them.

I loved Gabe probably the most in this story so I can't wait to start Toxic to get to his story.

This is a really well written and thought out book. At times it was perhaps too wordy but that may be attractive to other readers.

It was a bit of a strange story though and a little far fetched but hey, this is book-land and anything goes, right?!

I must admit, stories about (view spoiler) are not really enjoyable to me as I find them quite emotional and gut-wrenching but this didn't over-shine the story and I was able to fully appreciate the book despite it's heavy subject matter.

Reaper's Legacy (Reapers MC, #2)Reaper's Legacy by Joanna Wylde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well after being blown away by Reaper’s Property, I was wondering how much of an impact this second instalment would have on me and I’ll tell you…. THIS BOOK IS BLINKIN’ AMAZING!!!!!

I loved the first sentence, I read it and said to myself “yeah, bring it on”. I was turning the pages on my kindle so fast I thought it was going to overheat although I’m surprised the story itself didn’t cause it to go up in flames a time or two.

If there was ever a book that warranted more than 5 Stars then this is it. Joanna Wylde has created an amazing series with fabulous characters and I am so addicted to it that I’m shaking with anticipation for the next instalment.

Off Chance (Off, #5)Off Chance by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sawyer Bennett has created an amazing series in the “Off” books. Who can resist so many hotties being fired at you from Sawyer Bennett’s fingertips? Can you imagine what it’s like inside Sawyer Bennett’s head with those steamy storylines swimming around waiting to be written!!! I have loved each and every one of the “Off” books and Off Chance was no exception. I did find myself slightly distracted by the book cover though, and it took quite a bit of willpower to get back to the story and to stop staring at the gorgeous Flynn aka Derrick Vargo.

Flynn Caldwell, an unpredictable and emotional firefighter fire fighter, yep ladies Sawyer Bennett went there, comes across Rowan Page in a desperate situation and after rescuing her he soon finds out that she has lost everything and everyone in her life. Determined to help Rowan, Flynn offers her his help and support which Rowan reluctantly accepts. Faced with needing to turn her life around again, Rowan is determined to succeed but insists to Flynn that it has to be on her own terms.

I was delighted to see the return of the previous “Off” characters, especially Nix who’s relationship with Rowan was entertaining if albeit brief. I did find myself slightly frustrated with Rowan though and I know what you will all say, her background made her behave insecurely, blah, blah, blah but she still rattled my cage. That said, Flynn was the perfect character to complement Rowan’s pain in the arse-ness!!!. This book was an obsessive read and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and despite Rowan’s neuroses I came to love her in the end.

4 Star Review: S.E.C.R.E.T. (Secret #1) by L Marie Adeline

S.E.C.R.E.T. (Secret, #1)S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having read S.E.C.R.E.T. Shared (Secret #2) first, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Cassie’s story and follow her through her own “steps”.

Having found herself working in a café after her world falls apart, Cassie life is put on hold for 5 years while she comes to terms with the loss of her husband.

After finding a notebook left behind in the café by Pauline Davis, Cassie hesitantly dips into it only to be shocked by what she finds: records of her sexual encounters or “steps”. Closing the book quickly, she waits for Pauline to return to retrieve her errant booklet.

When Pauline returns she is Matilda who Cassie later finds out is part of S.E.C.R.E.T. a society created to liberate women’s sexuality by granting them their sexual fantasies. Cassie is hesitant by Matilda’s offer of assistance but eventually contacts her and soon her own “steps” begin.

Each of Cassie’s “steps” are with extremely sexy men in extremely hot situations but again I enjoyed Jesse, the tattooed pastry chef, the most and was glad his story continues with Cassie in book 2.

The culmination of Cassie’s steps sees her biggest adventure but will this mean a HEA for Cassie, you’ll have to read the book to find out!

Secret Shared (Secret, #2)Secret Shared by L. Marie Adeline
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Copy received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Ok, rapid summary: A S.E.C.R.E.T. society that aims to re-build women’s confidence by providing sexual fantasies with hot men. What isn’t there to like???? Add in a sexy love interest for each of the main characters and you have a delicious erotic romance story :)

I had not read the first book prior to starting S.E.C.R.E.T. Shared but I did not have any difficulty getting straight into this story. Although it would have been preferable to have read book one prior to starting this, the author did provide an in-depth summary of Cassie’s story to date to allow readers to read this as a stand-alone book if necessary.

This book focuses on the continuation of Cassie's story after she had completed her S.E.C.R.E.T. STEPS. Cassie now has to decide what happens to her next. Does she leave S.E.C.R.E.T. or continue on to another role within the organisation?

Dauphine is the next recruit requiring the help and assistance of the ladies of S.E.C.R.E.T. Having found her boyfriend in a compromising position with her best friend and who subsequently writes a book which has an indirect link to her, Dauphine wallows in her own self-pity for years before she comes across Cassie whose confidence with the opposite sex intrigues her. After disclosing her background and involvement with S.E.C.R.E.T. to Dauphine, Cassie becomes her Guide through her own STEPS.

Starting out on her journey through S.E.C.R.E.T., Dauphine faces her fears and conquers them whilst living her sexual fantasies until she questions one of the STEPS she is faced with and is forced to question whether she is willing to continue her S.E.C.R.E.T. experiences.

I really enjoyed this book so much that I will go and purchase the first book to live Cassie’s story in more detail.

I did it!!! I finally read On Dublin Street!!!! And..... I really liked it, yay for me!!!

Off Course (Off, #4)Off Course by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the Off series and couldn't wait for Off Course's release.

What can I say about Cillian *sigh*, a pierced, tattooed musician who is Irish. Girls, this one will have your heart racing!!!! With his tough guy exterior and heart of pure gold you're likely to fall in love with him before a quarter of the way through the book!

The story had a sensitive undercurrent which Ms Bennett handled well and gave the book a thought provoking edge to it.

I can't wait for the final story in this series. I will miss interacting with Sawyer over each new hot alpha male she introduces to us in the Off series but no doubt I will find her other books as equally captivating. Keep up the good work Sawyer <3 br="">

What can I say but I love Linc!!!!!

Following the release of an article written by Ever Montgomery where she spills the beans about Linc's life from an "off the record" interview Linc decides to take action against Ever and demands retribution by making her spend 6 weeks with him following his every move. Soon Ever realises that she has misjudged Linc and she too gets swept off her feet by his endless charms.

Everyone should read this series!!!!

Everyone needs a Horse!!!!

This book is brilliant and an absolute must read. I love MC based books and this one was another treat. Horse is to die for and Marie's character complimented him perfectly. It was nice not to have an irritating female alongside an alpha male for a change.

Horse's dark and sinister side compared to his caring and loving side was dee-lish <3 about="" all="" amongst="" br="" can="" friends.="" fuss="" i="" my="" the="" understand="" was="" what="">
The storyline was interesting and kept me focused throughout and the steaminess was just the icing on the cake.
