Power Exchange & Safe Word (Power Exchange, #1 & #2) ~ A.J. Rose

                           From the moment Detective Gavin DeGrassi steps into the world of BDSM to solve the brutal slaying of Dom George Kaiser, his course is not his own. Mesmerized by the context in which the victim lived and the images of the lifestyle seared into his soul, Gavin must find a way to navigate these unknown waters. With his personal life in upheaval due to marital trouble, and his professional life uncertain with the assignment of a new partner, Gavin needs all the help he can get understanding the case.

Enter Ben Haverson, a psychologist and a well known Dom. With Ben’s help as a consultant and attention to Gavin's own murky truths, Gavin delves deeper than he ever thought he would into the world of restraints and paddles. Forced to scrutinize his true nature and his innermost desires, Gavin has a choice: keep the fear of submitting at bay, or dive in and solve the case with the knowledge he gains. When another victim is discovered, Gavin’s choice is made for him, and he’s pulled headlong into the deepest, most emotional journey of his life.

Unfortunately for him and Ben, a killer has noticed, has taken stock, and has set his sights on the D/s pair. Can Gavin outwit him, or will his first exchange of power be his last?


Everywhere Detective Gavin DeGrassi looks he’s reminded of his attack by the Breath Play Killer. It’s in the house he lives in with his partner and Dom, Ben Haverson. It’s in the sympathetic yet pitying looks he receives from his fellow detectives when he returns to the force after a year-long hiatus. It’s in the suffocating coddling of his entire family, and the relentless reporter demanding an exclusive of his ordeal.

Most of all, it’s in his lack of submission to Ben, who isn’t convinced Gavin’s recovered enough to trust the power exchange between them.

The miraculous recovery of two teen boys from a twisted kidnapper gives him heart, and Gavin's determined to prove he can handle anything despite increasing strain between him and Ben, painful nightmares, and panic when anyone touches him.

But his next case is too close for comfort: a friend and colleague found raped and murdered in a fate chillingly similar to what could have been his own, and this killer isn’t stopping with one cop. As the body count rises and taunting souvenirs are being hand-delivered to Gavin, he faces a frustrating lack of leads, a crushing need to prove himself, and a sinking suspicion the imprisoned kidnapper’s reach is further than originally thought. A miasma of uncertainty and fear threaten to suffocate him when he asks a question with which he’s overwhelmingly familiar: what happens when a victim is pushed too far?
Combined review.. Both had a great plot, plenty of suspense, very engaging mysterious undertone, packed with action and was majorly Hot!

Power Exchange:
Definitely enjoyed reading about Gavin's struggle with coming to terms about his sexual preference and his need to let go and immerse himself in the BDSM lifestyle and Ben was more than anyone can ask for with his knowledge and desire to help Gavin through all that... The story line was slow to start but really didn't annoy me much until when the obvious was not so obvious to Gavin.. Really the story line was based on Gavin and Ben but the underlying investigation was just as prominent as everything else laying the ground for his marital issues and introducing secondary characters. So when Gavin was just plain blind to it all I was a bit peeved.. Other than that the intimate and dominating scenes were just HOT. Need to read Safeword and see where it takes Gavin & Ben..

Gavin finally stands up for himself! even though there were a few moments he was way to Dramatic... Everyone got what they deserved and there were some seriously Hot scenes... I thought the murder mystery storyline behind this one was SOOO much better. Ben I felt finally opened up and Gavin's family were well out of their shell and as supportive as they could be. The Epilogue was nice and gave closure to it all. And this cover is gorgeous I just had to mention that!

The Professor's Plaything ~ Normandie Alleman

The Professor's PlaythingThe Professor's Plaything by Normandie Alleman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Twenty-one year old Colette Ellis has done plenty of daydreaming about Professor John McGill, but after a spur-of-the-moment decision to seduce him in his office turns her fantasies into reality, she is left longing for more.

She soon learns that this handsome academic can be as firm as he is passionate, and when her bratty behavior earns her a sound spanking she sees a side of him she never expected. Before she knows it, the beautiful young woman finds herself tied up at his mercy, naked, exposed, and more aroused than she could have ever imagined. As she grows closer to him, she cannot help but wonder how long this can last. Could John come to see her as more than just a naughty coed?

John has never fallen for a student… until now. There is something different about Colette, something that brings him alive in a way he has never felt before. Can he dare to hope that she is after more than just a fling?

My Review:

Colette's fantasies of seducing her Professor turn into reality when she impulsively throws herself at him while working on a research project.... She definitely wasn't expecting her actions to back fire on her, John took her by surprise in so many ways!!!!
The steamy story is fast paced with more of a contemporary romance feel to it..
Not what I was expecting but an enjoyable quick Insta Love read!

Inflame (Explosive, #3) ~ Tessa Teevan

Inflame (Explosive, #3)

Easy going soldier Kale Montgomery, a self-proclaimed ladies man, has no plans of settling down, especially not with his best friend- the sexy, sassy schoolteacher Lucy Dawson. Their relationship, though unconventional, is mutually beneficial, and they wouldn't have it any other way. Friends with benefits? Casual lovers? Whatever you want to call it, they’re having fun, in and out of bed, and to them, that’s all that matters. At least that’s what they think, but how long can you spend in someone's bed before you find they're also infiltrating your heart?

As their casual fling with no strings attached progresses, it's not long before they realize they're both in way over their heads. One fateful night changes their lives forever in ways they could never have imagined, giving them the push to finally admit that maybe, just maybe they want more than they’ve let on. Their mutual attraction rapidly intensifies as it shifts from burning lust to unrelenting want, need, and possibly even love. Suddenly the idea of settling down doesn't seem so bad. In fact, it sounds pretty damn perfect.

Just when things seem to be falling into place, past pain and renewed insecurities rise to the surface and threaten to smother the flames of their passionate relationship, reminding them both why they’ve always kept the idea of love at arm's length. Will Kale and Lucy realize that what they've been waiting for is each other, or will the blazing whirlwind of their feelings burn out too quickly, causing it to all go up in smoke?

5.. Need to Stock up on some Kale STARS!!!

This was a friends to lovers story that won me over from the very first chapter.. These two met in the cutest way and didn't ever hide their attraction towards one another.. Due to some secrets in their past they were both OKAY just being "Friends with Benefits". An over due reunion with a night of pent up lust & passion led to an un planned pregnancy.

Kale has ruined me for any other Baby Daddy Hero's.. He was total perfection and undoubtedly irresistible.. He was sexy, charming, funny and protective.. He had some Demons to overcome which was his only flaw because he tried to bury them deep.. From the moment he found out Lucy was having his baby he made it known they were in it together!

Kale and Lucy were made for each other.. They just didn't know how to tell the other, but once they started opening up it was smooth sailing. When Kale came up with the name "Sprout" I fell for him hard and that just kept happening over and over again!
"Yeah, Sprout. I figured since I planted the seed, you've got a little Kale in there. Sprout only seems fitting, and I don't want to call it an "it" anymore, So Sprout it is"

The funny foodie and garden jokes had me laughing out load and I couldn't stop the giggles when he came up with "JAM"
"I'll do my part and make sure you eat lots and lots of Kale"

 Inflame packed some serious Heat the Connection between them was off the charts HOT....
Kale and Lucy get an A+ !!

Loved both Epilogue's and can't wait to see what Tessa Teevan has in store for Xavier and the Wellington brothers..

Devil's Game (Reapers MC, #3) ~ Joanna Wylde

Devil's Game (Reapers MC, #3)

Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies—the Reapers—using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger—a man who isn't afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn't afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.

I JUST Can't get ENOUGH of this series!!!!

They're gritty, crass, sexy, raw and just plain addicting Loved IT....

Liam and Em's story runs simultaneously with Ruger and Sophie's and it was a Brilliant addition to the series!!

We met Liam in Reaper's Legacy and boy was he a contradiction... He kidnapped Em in order to look out for one of his brothers and I for one wanted to rip has ganoids off with my bare hands. How Could He!?!?!.. They'd already had a friendship of sorts although under false pretenses (on both their end). Liam had a tough childhood and was taken in by the Devil's Jack MC at a very young age.. He's the one sent in to finish the job and was being groomed to take over..
He was Super Sexy and Sweet but he had me going in circles. Through out I didn't know whether I wanted to Pummel him or rip his clothes off and pounce on him or maybe hang him by his balls but then thought what a waste might as well hump him..

Em was an amazing heroine - She's the MC's Presidents daughter! Born and Raised a Reaper enough said.. She was smart, strong and definitely a fighter.. We got to see her vulnerable sides but she never come across as needy or whiney. She still held her V card but knew how to use her sexuality to her advantage.

Let me just tell you there was some serious petting , fondling and creative non penetrative action going on.. Liam AKA Hunter and Em had some smoking HOT chemistry!! These two were made for each other.. Liam needed a strong as nails woman to keep him grounded and EM needed a total ALPHA she could respect. I laughed, I grumbled and I cheered through out.. Can't wait for Picnic's tale..

 Liam is another Hot Biker - Hunk that has been added to my shelf with a touch of sweetness that will melt in your mouth!!!

Fate's Edge (The Edge, #3) ~ Ilona Andrews

I won a copy on Goodreads Firstreads...
But since I'm OCD with series I went ahead and read the first 2 before even attempting to 
read this one..and good thing I did :)
The characters intermingle briefly but nicely.
I have to say I really like this series. It was the first I have read by this Author Duo and I will definetly read more by them..(Kate Daniels oohhh yea) 
The characters are all blended great between the different books and you get to cheer for them all over again. Kaldar and Audrey were funny and witty through out the book and each 
had their fears to work through but when it came time to work together for a common goal they were great together. you got to see Kalder the matchmaker finally meet his match... 
 It was good to see George help Jack overcome his insecurities through brotherly love and humorous banter..and Gaston mature to a dependable alley...
The villians are true villians you just want destroyed and are on the edge of your seat until they are
Cant wait to see more of this world!!!!

It Ain't Me, Babe (Hades Hangmen, #1) ~ Tillie Cole

It Ain't Me, Babe

Sinning never felt so good… 

A fortuitous encounter. 

A meeting that should never have happened. 

Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever… 

Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free. 

Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again. 

River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight. 

Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away. 

Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go… 

What a PHENOMENAL read!

This MC book stood out from the rest and has definitely landed a spot in my top favorite's...
Right from the very first page...Unique storyline, Sex & Steam and off the Charts action!!!

Loved loved loved Styx and Mae!!!
Destiny and Fate were front and center with these 2 they were made for each other..

Styx was one super yummy badass Prez... His speech impediment only made him more dangerous since he was taught from an early age that a disadvantage was overlooked when one was feared...
Sooo hence the Hangmen Mute was feared and respected...

 photo 4622378_zps00c58781.jpg

Salome was raised in a radical cult... That took advantage of their woman.. Made them fear the outside world and used this fear for their own sordid perverse needs and prophecies.
She managed to escape and was brought right to Hades backyard.

 photo 8863373c-d2b0-4a9c-9812-95f4839fccd2_zps61186bac.jpg

I did not want this book to gave me chills at times while reading just knowing, that lifestyle does exist.. It enraged me at how these cults could manipulate and abuse young women..
I was sucked in and needed to see justice in some form...

 photo 7275137_zps72199900.gif

I loved where Tillie Cole took me with this story and I need to see more of these hardcore motherfuckers fall hard for these broken females..

Had to bump up due to the Authors Note... And sooooo happy I did!

Uncovering You 2: Submission ~ Scarlett Edwards

Uncovering You 2: Submission (Uncovering You, #2)

I have survived the worst. I have come out of the darkness with my sanity intact. 

Now, I get to meet the monster holding me here. For the first time since my captivity began, I get to meet Stonehart. 

Whatever he wants, I'll be ready. The collar may be tight around my neck, but I will not be a prisoner. 

A prisoner has no choice. A prisoner has no purpose. 

But a concubine, on the other hand? She always has a choice. 

And today, I choose to fight.

I'm about to have heart palpitations from the rage I'm feeling right this moment.. This is PURE TORTURE!!! **SHOUTING**SHAKING FIST IN AIR**

So we started off with this beauty in the first installment and a hint of who the sadistic mystery KIDNAPPER was..

 photo bb29d27d841caf5da4bb2f2ff05f360a_zps63af447e.jpg

Lilly is hell bent on figuring out the why's of her predicament!!!
What is it that Stonehart wants to accomplish by all of this..

 photo ed696c49e29a357efe9257cd5aff97fa_zps8d7d6636.jpg

Damn..... Stonehart is emotionless, coldhearted and just plain mean!!
He has not given an inch what so ever and has beat Lilly to the punch EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

 photo bf5a6e08032fe73393970ff550286a45_zpsff138149.jpg

He won't relent until she's Completely HIS, Broken and at his MERCY... The only thing Lilly has left is Her Sanity which she's grasping at and her need to Destroy Him..
