Michel’s Review

It’s always a delight to read anything written by Kylie Scott. It is an extra bonus when her latest novella is set in the Stage Dive world and we get to re-visit some of our favorite rockers and yes that includes the one of a kind percussionists that doles out dating advice while parenting his puppy. Alas, the Stage Dive members are not the stars of this novella but one of their security team agents, Ziggy Thayer, has been hired to protect their neighbor, plus size super- model Mae Cooper. While Ziggy is all kinds of hot and can rock a suit, he is also good at his job. He’s her to protect Mae.

Mae has a stalker who has been sending bloody gifts that are raising all kinds of warning flags. The stalker has escalated from threatening letters to threatening gifts. Ziggy believes this is only the beginning and wants to find the person behind the threats. Although He loves protecting Mae but would rather put his hands on her a different way. She has won his heart with her down to earth personality and great sense of humor. Why anyone would want to hurt this beautiful soul is beyond him but he knows there are all kinds of crazies in the world. It’s his job to neutralize the crazy.

Mae and Ziggy are dancing around what they really want to do with each other. When the threat is finally eliminated… watch out because these two are going to bring down the house.

Once again Kylie Scott wrote a delightful novella and created fun-loving, likable characters that make the Stage Dive world even more delightful. She added her special blend of snarky humor and sarcasm while also maintaining a sexy romance. I loved it!

Closer is a fun, fast paced novella that will keep the reader fully engaged and entertained.

Excerpt:

I’d had bodyguards before. But only for events like fashion week or a big shoot. Just for a limited amount of time. My contract with Ziggy, however, was open ended, dependent on the heart in the box situation. Once he’d grilled me about what the police were doing (investigating my entire life), my routine (I don’t really have one. It’s consumed by work), and my calendar for the next few days (I’d freed up time to finish unpacking and then back to work on my lingerie line), he drove me to the gym. There was one I used a couple of times in the apartment building, but I generally do better with some active encouragement and guidance.

Guess Ziggy approved of my Land Rover because he gave it another one of those almost-smiles. I, however, continued to receive the full professional cold front face. This was definitely going to take some getting used to.

“Who’s your shadow?” asked Kwana, my awesome trainer.

I paused mid-lunge, my breath coming hard and fast. “My bodyguard, Ziggy. You like him?”

“He’s pretty. Don’t stop, keep moving.”

“Yeah, yeah.”

“You don’t usually have one of them around. Have you been getting hassled or something?”

Kwana stood with her arms crossed, all lean muscles beneath brown skin. Since we were in an open area at the end of the main part of the gym, Ziggy waited over by the wall, just out of earshot. He stood with his arms loose at his side, his gaze constantly wandering a circuit from me—around the room, over to the exits, and back again. Always on alert.

“More a precaution than anything,” I said.

No matter how much I liked Kwana, no one outside my inner circle needed to know about the incident. The fewer people who found out about the gross cow heart and knife the better.

There’d been no further news from the police. Though it was never likely they’d track down a suspect and charge that person the next day.

Case closed, hooray!

New Release and Review: Darkest Sinner by Rachel Van Dyken – The Dark Ones Saga- Book 5 – A Standalone Paranormal Romance

Darkest Sinner - RB banner.jpg

Darkest Sinner, an all-new standalone paranormal romance by Rachel Van Dyken is LIVE!

DarkSinner_eBook_HighRes.jpg

I’ve always known pain. Existence. Night.

Made a sinner.

Without a soul to keep me tethered to the world I so desperately want to be a part of but am damned to rule…

Life isn’t living.

Not when everyone sees you as enemy number one, King of the demon race and yet something much more… powerful and sinister pulses beneath the surface of my skin.

It started when I met her, the power surging under my fingertips like the cruel universe was finally answering my screams at night for something more.

And just like that, the memories come, only I don’t know if they’re mine or someone else’s entirely.

Long ago, I made a bargain with a god.

A soul for a soul.

I spent thousands of years without this awareness and now?

Everything I touch turns to ash.

Even my own immortal friends fear what I am.

Everyone but her. The day to my night.

Part of me doesn’t want to know what I am.

But it’s too late, too all-consuming.

Darkness is coming.

That darkness, I’m afraid. Is me.

Michel’s Review

Darkest Sinner by Rachel Van Dyken is the latest release in the Dark Ones Saga. It can be read as a standalone or in series order. I would highly recommend reading the entire series because the paranormal world is already established and many of the key players have been introduced in previous books.  The Dark Ones have been assigned certain roles in the modern contemporary world. They are the protectors and keepers of the balance between good and evil. What happens when the balance has been rocked and is going off kilter. It can upset the balance and change the roles of each protector. This could redefine the world as we know it.

Timber, the king of demons, is losing his borrowed soul. He is reaching the point of no return when he meets the new waitress in his bar. The moment he meets Kyra he feels a connection that could either completely destroy him or restore his diminishing existence.

Throughout the ages these two souls were meant to be together. Will they find a way to make it work before it’s too late? Read the book!

I thoroughly enjoyed Darkest Sinner. It was brilliant how Rachel Van Dyken intertwined two ancient civilization religions and mythology to blend into one. I highly recommend this book!

Dating Series – Book 2

By Monica Murphy

Blurb:

Working at Bliss Lingerie, Sarah Harrison deals with all sorts of—interesting clientele. Yet no one sparks her interest more than Jared Gaines, the ultra-rich, ultra-sexy businessman who frequents her shop, buying delicate little “gifts” for the women in his life.

But one day, Jared sends her a gift from Bliss. Then another—and another. So when Sarah walks into his office demanding to know why he can’t stop sending her gifts, he makes her an offer she somehow can’t refuse: be his fake girlfriend for the weekend while attending his brother’s engagement party.

Next thing Sarah knows, she’s in San Francisco, pretending to be in love with Jared. Not that it’s a hardship. Once you get the man away from the office, he’s much more relaxed. Sweet. Funny. Even…thoughtful? Oh, and sexier than ever, of course.

Their pretend relationship feels very real, very quickly. Soon Sarah’s in over her head. Could what she and Jared share turn into something real? Or is it all actually…fake?

Excerpt

 

“Mr. Gaines,” I say, pasting on my best customer smile when he lifts his gaze to mine.

His dark brown eyes flash with an unfamiliar gleam and my breath catches in the back of my throat. “Back so soon, I see.”

“You know I can’t resist you, Miss Harrison.” His smile is slow. Wolfish, if that’s really

a thing. I read it in a romance novel once, thought it was kind of silly, but right now, it’s working for Jared.

His entire demeanor right now reminds me of a predatory creature. His face is all hard lines—stern, straight nose, granite jaw, sharp cheekbones, steely eyes. Yet his mouth, his lips are soft. Full. Lush.

Kissable.

Shaking my head at the wayward thought, I return his smile, trying my best to remain

polite. Professional.

“Is there anything in particular you’re looking for this afternoon?” I’m surprised by how steady my voice is, considering I feel like my insides are sloshing back and forth, like I’m on a boat in the middle of the ocean.

“You don’t have anything pulled aside for my appointment?” He raises a single brow, the expression on his face practically daring me to say no.

Well, guess what? I’m about to say it.

“No, I didn’t pull anything aside.” I shrug when he glares at me. “You never told me the nature of your visit.”

He glances about, making sure no one is around, I’d assume. And lucky for him, there’s no one in the store currently. It’s the middle of the week, early afternoon. We normally don’t get too many customers at this time.

We are the only two people in here. Even Marlo has disappeared.

“Perhaps you can show me some of your newer items,” he suggests.

“I can do that.” All new arrivals are at the front of the store, so we’re in the right spot. I lead him to a table showcasing our latest bra and panty design. “Celestial is the theme for spring into summer.”

I point to the bras made of thin, sheer netting and pink silk, tiny pale pink stars stitched in a scattered pattern across the tulle fabric. They leave nothing to the imagination, and the panties are the same.

“They hide nothing.” He holds up a pair of brief-cut panties, turning them this way and that. Every time he holds underwear in those big hands of his, I melt a little inside. I don’t know why he affects me like this.

“You’re right. They don’t,” I agree, grabbing a thong and flipping it over to the thin

string of lace that makes up the backside. “But they’re terribly sweet.”

“Sweet?”

I glance up to find him watching me. “Sweet yet sexy,” I counter, my cheeks going hot

from the way he’s studying me so carefully.

“You like the celestial theme?”

I nod. Press my lips together so I don’t say something I regret. Like, I love this theme, or Do you want me to model the panties for you?

Yeah. That’s a bad idea.

Michel’s Review

Fake Date by Monica Murphy is the second book in the Dating Series. This delightful contemporary series takes place in Carmel-by-the Sea, California, an upscale seaside small town.  This series features a group of young, dynamic women working in the designer boutique shops and cafe’s finding love at the most unexpected moment in their lives.

Sara Harrison has worked for Bliss Lingerie, a high end boutique for years. She has worked her way up to becoming a personal shopper for some of their upscale clients. One of those clients is Jarod Gaines, a wealthy businessman buying gifts for the women in his life. He makes her uncomfortable but also gives her goosebumps at the same time. When he starts sending her gifts and flowers she feels like he’s crossing the line. When he propositions her to be his fake date it’s almost impossible to refuse.

Her impressions of Jared change as she gets to know the closed off man beneath the surface. There’s more to his story. Sure he might be the biggest jerk that hit the planet. He may be a bit creeper/ stalkerish, but underneath the surface is a clueless man who just needs to bring down the walls that hold the real Jarod prisoner.

I going to be absolutely honest, at first I absolutely hated Jarod. He creeped me out in many ways until he started letting his guard down. Then once he did it was obvious he’s a clueless man that doesn’t deal well with his emotions. What kept me invested in the book was Sara and her girlfriend posse. Their dating advice and texting codes reminded me of how wonderful girlfriends are in the scary world of dating. They are the sound boards, protectors, instigators, cheerleaders, drinking buddies, and therapist all wrapped up in margarita’s and chocolate at the perfect moment.

In the end I fell for Jordan and realized he was just a guy who needed love.

I can’t wait for Jarod’s  baby sister Candice to get her story in the upcoming book Holidate. Holidate by Monica Murphy will release on October 15, 2019.

She’s a firm believer in happy endings, though she will admit to putting her characters through angst-filled moments before they finally get that hard won HEA.

Synopsis:
As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.

Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.

As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible. When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her.

Michel’s Review

One of the things I love best about author Sawyer Bennett is her diversity. Every one of her series is completely different and has an authentic feel in every book while still having the Sawyer Bennett brand. Her latest new series is in the romantic suspense genre and is loaded with action packed suspense and slow burning passion. Code Name: Sentinel is the second book in The Jameson Force Security series.

Cruce was a former member of the Secret Service when he retired and moved to Jameson Force Security. The President of the United States calls him for a favor. A favor that he can only entrust to Cruce and the Jameson Force Security.  His niece, Barrett Alexander, is a scientist working on an energy project that will change the world. This top secret project has placed her in danger and the source of danger is unknown. He wants Cruce to protect Barrett personally and the Jameson Force to find out who is being the threats.

The closer Barrett gets to the finish line the higher the danger escalates. Crude is forced to take drastic measures to protect her life. He needs to get her out of DC and away from Jameson headquarters. The perfect solution is hiding out on a private island posing as rich newlyweds. Being on a secluded island together is a chance for both of them to see work isn’t the most important thing in their life and down time is necessary. Taking these drastic measures and precious moments will lead falling in love while still changing the world. But first they need to eliminate the danger.

Sawyer Bennett created an action packed romantic suspense that kept me fully engaged until the very end. I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet moments as much as the moments charged with danger. The characters came to life and jumped off the pages. I can’t wait to see what comes next for The Jameson Force Security.

About the Author:

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
