Review: The Tutor

The Tutor The Tutor by K.D. Grace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was definitely the something different that I was looking for. Love this story and it took sexy to a whole new level!

You know with KD Grace to expect the unexpected and The Tutor definitely carries on in the same vein. From a gorgeous cover, which immediately attracted my attention, came a story like no other. Seeing that one of the characters in this book suffers from haphephobia, following a childhood trauma, I couldn't wait to experience just how the two main protagonists would work around this condition.

Kelly Blake is a writer and moonlights as a sex tutor. Having helped many people understand the complexities of sex and all that it entails, she finds herself drawn in to help sculptor, Alexander "Lex" Valentine, who finds himself unable to touch or be touched by anyone without being sick or passing out. At his PA's insistence, Lex agrees to meet with Kelly and although drawn to her, he struggles to see how she can help his condition, without making matters worse. Despite a hesitant start, Lex soon finds that there are other ways to be with Kelly without actually being with Kelly.

Their working relationship and tentative friendship initially struggles but a public grand gesture by Lex makes Kelly's future take a dramatic turn as she finds herself living with Lex in order to escape the paparazzi. With an unbreakable bond, the duo start to find ways of helping each other and to alleviate their mutual sexual tension. Lex starts to trust Kelly and in doing so finds himself able to get closer to her until he forces himself to make contact with her, albeit briefly, and before he's violently sick.

I really enjoyed the voyage of self-exploration that Lex and Kelly find themselves on. They have both suffered in their pasts but Lex more so as he tries to find the answers that his nightmares are trying to direct him towards.

As expected with KD Grace's books, the sexual encounters are not of the norm but no less expressive or fulfilling for readers. Despite not touching each other, the emotions and sexual encounters experienced were extremely erotic and beautiful and readers will definitely feel the power of sight over touch.

This is definitely a recommended read if you're looking for something a little different.

Yet another wonderfully poignant story by Freya Barker.

With an overall more timid but no less thought-provoking feel to it, A Change in Tide carries readers along a wave of emotion as you experience Mia’s struggles with PTSD and the daily, painful reminders of the life she once lived.

Jared’s has lived his life to the fullest with fame, money and women aplenty but now he finds himself wanting something totally different out of life and new neighbour, Mia, unwittingly holds the key to his future.

Review: Dead Bodies Everywhere

Dead Bodies Everywhere Dead Bodies Everywhere by Jade C. Jamison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We’re back in Winchester but for once, life for Nicki isn’t a bed of roses!

I love this series with a passion and could re-read each instalment again and again. Nicki Sosebee is a larger than life character and her free loving attitude towards men may at times have been extreme but her love for Sean anchors her in her times of need, and boy does she have her fair share of them! Despite being on book #11, I find myself still wanting more from this amazing series and with so many questions still left unanswered, I hope that readers don't have to wait long to get to the bottom of them.

SPOILER Still separated from Sean *insert sobbing here*, and recovering from her brief time dating Hunter, Nicki is still crashing with her friend Brandy and her once fun-filled life now seems in tatters as she finds herself clinging on to the things that one meant the most to her. Lost in her own life story, Nicki feels isolated and alone, especially without her Sean and her Napoli family by her side.

Whilst still working for the Tribune, and late evenings at a local pharmacy, Nicki continues to juggle her investigations alongside earning a living and in doing so, uncovers yet more sordid revelations from the underbelly of society but this time multiple dead bodies are involved.

Having struggled to uncover any links to the meth business, and previous prostitution ring, and to link them to Cecil Montgomery, Nicki continues to uncover yet more evidence which shows that corruption in the town she loves is rife. From police corruption *is he or isn’t he - Det. Nathan Wright???* and with half of the town owned by Cecil Montgomery, it starts to look like Nicki’s digging is beginning to pay off but is what she is uncovering the reasons behind why the bodies are stacking up? Now assigned to reporting the crime news for the paper, Nicki has a front row seat as the identities of the bodies are revealed and a sinister message is unveiled.

Nicki continues to work with investigative blogger, Janice Beaker, and together they try to piece together the evidence they uncover but as suspected, each turn they make seems to lead to Cecil Montgomery. Sean continues to assist Nicki but even he starts to feel the pressure of what they are uncovering and the once intrepid duo are together becoming overly prominent in the eyes of the wrong people.

With every instalment, my heart breaks a little more for Jesse. Head over heels in love with Nicki, he tries to find a girl to help him to move on from his feelings for her but when it looks like he’s finally found someone to care for him, he once again finds himself spurned.

So, will Nicki tie any of these crimes to Cecil Montgomery? Will she ever find out who Blackie is? Will she end up with Sean or Jesse? Has Nicki endangered herself and Sean by continuing with her investigations? And, WTH ever happened to Carlos? I guess only time will tell! END SPOILER

5 Stars Review: Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites #1) by Avery Aster

Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites, #1)Unscrupulous by Avery Aster
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC provided courtesy of Avery Aster in return for an honest review.

Who wouldn't love this book. It has a big daddy, an anaconda and vajazzling and no I've not been drinking and mixing up my porn and wildlife programmes!!!

Set in a world of fashion and high end living, this book quickly sweeps you along into a lifestyle most could only dream off. Taddy Brill is a stunning wealthy socialite and add in Warner Truman, with the physique of an American footballer, and the scene is set for a hot, sexy, dirty and above all else, loveable storyline. Both self-made millionaires, they work hard and play even harder.

The supporting cast is fabulous especially Kiki, Taddy's Mormon executive assistant who's naivety and innocence results in extremely entertaining situations.

Taddy’s besties come in the form of Vive, Lex and Blake all of whom have an interesting story to tell in their own right. I’d love to explore a relationship between Vive and Warner’s brother, Sheldon. Now that would be explosive!!!! Although, books could spin off from any of the supporting cast as they are all equally delicious.

This book takes you from Manhattan to St Barth’s and the South of France for the Cannes film festival so hold on to your seats, sip your champagne and enjoy the ride.

If you love your erotic romance mixed with humour and a splash of quirkiness then this book is for you.
