Secrets Exposed Secrets Exposed by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gosh, this series is good. After two Walker Brothers books, we step back in time and see how Lindsey and Mark's relationship, both business and pleasure, came about.

For a 0.5 into to the series, this book packs a punch and it has you on the edge of your seat throughout; that is when you're not fanning yourself from the sizzling connection Lindsey and Mark have when they're together.

This book, although part of a series, could be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading books 1 & 2 first as they set the scene.

If you like books about ex military/security/hired protection alphas then this series is for you, although this 0.5 instalment also ticks my law firm boxes as well.

Review: Dangerous Secrets

Dangerous Secrets Dangerous Secrets by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I simply love this series and each book gets better and better.

Not only do you have a gorgeous new book boyfriend in each instalment but the stories are complex and full of twists and turns to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Compared to other books I've read recently, you really get to feel the emotions between the main characters and its easy to get swept along with the storyline.

This book tells Julie's story with Luke Walker, ex Navy SEAL. Julie is a divorce attorney whose latest case spells danger for her and those around her. It falls to Luke and his brothers to keep her safe and to help her find out who is trying to harm Julie and to uncover the secrets of those involved.

I'll definitely read more by this author. She sets out a good, balanced storyline and adds depth and steaminess to suit all palates!!!

Review: Hot Secrets

Hot Secrets Hot Secrets by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book and found myself glued to it right from the first page.

I've been searching for a story with a gripping storyline for a little while now and this has it all: hunky alpha/caveman male lead, suspense, intrigue, mystery and a vulnerable female who needs saving!!!

Royce is brought into Lauren's life by her father but immediately upon meeting her for the first time he realises it's where he wants to stay, forever.

Royce, unsurprisingly, has two gorgeous brothers ready on the wings to take this series on and I can't wait to read more about Luke and Julie.

Review: The Story of Us

The Story of Us The Story of Us by Lesley Jones
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I know I'm in the minority here but this book completely missed the spot for me. It was just too unbelievable for words and contradicted itself throughout. I wanted to stop reading it but I managed to finish it and I hated the ending.

Parts of the story I loved but to many problems were resolved by sex. There were also lot of grammar and punctuation errors in it throughout which really need correcting.

It was weird the way the story with Cam just ended and how Georgia, despite being unconditionally in love with Sean, would behave the way she did.

This book has really made me feel so frustrated and forced me to over analyse every detail which for me took the shine off the story.

Review: Finger Bang

Finger Bang Finger Bang by Jade C. Jamison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Orgasmic Meditation and Blaze Donahue... yes please!!!

Well this was something a little different from Jade C Jamison and I loved it. The story premise alone captured my imagination but add the book's cover and I was sold.

Kaylee is a introvert as a result of her strict upbringing so when her friends suggest travelling to Boulder for a session in OM she is horrified. I mean, who could relax with a stranger playing a tune on your private string section! Despite her friends' pleas, Kaylee is determined to sit this wild idea out but when Blaze steps in and offers her a one-on-one OM session Kaylee reluctantly agrees.

Kaylee has always had a crush on Blaze but assuming herself to be off his radar as she has never openly flirted with him, until now, when the two realise that their feelings for one another are mutual.

The story continues with Blaze and Kaylee getting to know each other better.

For me, this story was a little light on substance. It was a really easy read with no real twists and turns so it's an ideal story when you're looking for something a bit lighter. And yes, I did Google OM lol!!! Blaze is a real sweetheart though and makes you go all gooey inside!

Review: The Singer

The Singer The Singer by Elizabeth Hunter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After loving the first book in the Irin Chronicles series, I had high hopes for this book but sadly, for me, they did not materialise. The book, although still continuing the story of Malachi and and Ava just didn't capture my imagination as much as The Scribe.

I felt The Singer was just too complex at times that it made it almost boring. There were just too many characters coming thick and fast in this book which made reading it, for me personally, slightly exhausting.

The story continues with Ava's trying to recover from Malachi's apparent death and she flees with Damian to find other Irina's to help her to understand her new found magic and to come to terms with her loss.

The scribes continue to try to find out where Ava came from and why Volund is so hell bent on capturing her and why Jaron trying to protect her.

For me, the last 30% was the most enjoyable part to this book but sadly it didn't make me want to continue with this series.

Review: Burn

Friday 9 May 2014 No comments
Burn Burn by Callie Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hmmmm, Zeth is almost human in this one, God I love that man!!!! He's cocky, he's arrogant, he's more than an alpha male, he's more than a caveman, he's simply..... ZETH!!!!

"Have you seen me, sweetheart? I look like a fucking Abercrombie and Fitch model." Oh, the smug, smug bastard. "No you don't! You look like a fucking criminal. And you are a fucking criminal." "A criminal who models for Abercrombie and Fitch?"
Obviously, Burn picks up after the Fractured cliffie with Zeth and Sloane brought together inside Julio Perez's house after Sloane ran for her life along with Lacey who she's left in her father's care.

Sloane has found herself fleeing from one terrifying experience though right into another one but with Zeth at her side she can only hope that they will find her sister and escape from Julio's house.

For me, Burn is the best book so far in the series. It was nice to just spend time getting to know more about Sloane and Zeth and finally getting to see behind Zeth's hard-man persona.

Sloane is simply helpless against Zeth's "charms" and assumes that Zeth only wants her in his life for one thing (which let's face it, who wouldn't want to just fcuk Zeth when he drops by unannounced) but is she mistaken and does this enigma of a man want more than fleeting, but extremely hot and passionate, times together?
I'm not just beer drunk on him. I'm fucking tequila drunk. Sideways. Gone. Blind with how badly I need him. Want him.
This book introduces the reader to Rebel once again and I must admit that I had to refresh my memory where this character is concerned. The ending sets the scene nicely though for more on this MC Pres. Who the fook would have thought we'd have ended going up in the MC club direction with this series, not me that for sure, but thank the Gods for Rebel.

This series is simply amazing and it's just getting better and better. This story flowed so well and I read it pretty much non-stop to see what happens next in Sloane and Zeth's lives. I was glad that Callie gave us an extra chapter at the end of Burn because the cliffie it finished on would have driven me insane, as it is now, she has just whet our appetites for more!

4 Star Review: Three Rivers (A Gateway to Love, #1) by Chloe T. Barlow

Three Rivers (A Gateway to Love, #1)Three Rivers by Chloe T. Barlow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A love borne from tragedy, secrets and lies is a love that will face challenges but ultimately its biggest challenge will be one of survival. This book tells such a story as it meanders just like it's Three Rivers towards happiness and salvation.

Althea has loved and lost but unexpectedly she finds happiness in her late husband's best friend, Griffen. After finding out she was pregnant a short while after losing Jack, Althea throws her life into her work and raising her son and remaining a loyal wife and widow in honour of Jack's memory.

Review: Carnal Desire

Carnal Desire Carnal Desire by K.T. Fisher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh-emm-gee!!!!! What an epic ride!!! I'm exhausted but in such a good way. I loved this book so much.

Okay, here it is, I've been in a darkened room and now feel strong enough to write this review!!!

This series has me so torn, normally it's clear which alpha character I am drawn to the most but in this book, I just don't know. I love Angel but then again I love Ink..... and Cowboy, Ice, and what about the mysterious Justice! Elle for me summed up Ink perfectly though:
Oh my. Ink, shirtless! Damn!
Oh, so many delicious hunks to choose from. Anyway, I've gone off at a tangent, again, back to the story....

After the shocking cliffie at the end of book one when it is revealed that Eve isn't safe to return home, the story picks up with Angel who is left wondering how he can protect Eve when she's so far away from him especially with his brother in close pursuit. Still injured, Angel immediately heads to the UK with Ink and Cowboy in an attempt to protect Eve before it is too late.

On her flight back to the UK, Eve meets Elle and immediately befriends her but it is Elle who stumbles across Angel, Cowboy and Ink and the four rush to save Eve from danger. Ink is immediately swept away by Elle's beauty and Ink does what Ink does best and adds a good dose of hot and heavy to the storyline!

Anyway, the story progresses with lots of twists and turns which will tie you up on knots before slowly unravelling you towards the book's conclusion.

There appears to be a third book in this series but after the way book two ends, with no obvious cliffie, I wonder what direction it will head in.

I will definitely re-read this series and will hopefully be less traumatised the second time around, well enough to enjoy the ride in a more relaxed manner!!!
