Sara Ney & Meghan Quinn - Love Sincerely Yours audiobook review


Dear Mister...**strike out** no, too formal.
Hey there sweet cheeks *strike out* no, too forward.     

To whom it may concern,
Full disclosure; before we move forward with this email, I would like it to be known that I have consumed an adequate amount of alcoholic beverages to intoxicate myself tonight. Three margaritas, two shots, and one beer—because it was free.
I think it’s important to be open and honest with your co-workers, don’t you?
So here I am, being honest. Drunk but honest. Or just drunk with lust? You decide.
I like you so much it’s clouding my judgment and making me do things I never would sober. Like write this letter.
I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. Your bark is worse then your bite, and you don’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.
And as long as we're being honest, that navy blue suit you wear? With the crisp white shirt? It really makes me want to loosen your tie and show you who’s boss.





My Audio Review

Ooh, boy! I loved reading this book and so listening to it was a second read through for me and honestly, I think I loved it even more than the first time!  I felt like I picked up things I may have missed the first time due to the way the narrators read this story. You know, kinda like when you watch a movie for the second time. And I really enjoyed the way Ava Erikson and Alexander Cendese brought Peyton and Rome to life! While I don't love the way he does a female voice, I can get past it and enjoy hearing him as Rome.  He's quite animated and I like his deep voice. I enjoyed the way the chapters flip POVs and therefore the narrators rotate reading chapters.  
I like how Peyton looks past Rome's gruff exterior and sees the man he hides from others.  There is a draw to him that her friends don't understand.  Writing to Rome as LSY allows him to open up to her and I really enjoyed the way their relationship develops.  Work comes before everything else so the buildup is a slow burn and the foreplay is HOTT! The chemistry these two have are palpable and I ADORED their sexy banter!  This book had all the feels and while I liked reading it, I can't recommend the audio version enough! Either way, don't miss out on this delicious read! 

Like a goddamn ray of sunshine, light streaming behind her from the window, a halo shining above her pretty head. 
Her lying, beautiful head. 
Dark hair, wavy and glossy, down around her shoulders, the rich color picking up red from the sun. She’s holding a glass—it’s poised at her lips and she’s about to take a sip—when our eyes meet. She lowers it, her mouth parts, and her smile spreads. 
Until I scowl. Then, her face morphs from happy to concerned in a second. Damn right she should be concerned. 
I nod. 
She nods. 
My eyes trail down the front of her and I note her dress—it’s baby blue, wrapped and tied at the waist, and shows off her curves while highlighting her legs in those sexy-as-shit heels. 
Stop thinking about her curves and legs. You’re not here to admire her. 
The pile of gifts in the corner pisses me off, bringing me back into the present, back to my rage, and has me lifting my arm; crooking my finger. 
Peyton’s brows go up at the same time her head cocks and she pokes a finger into her own chest. “Me?” 
“Yeah. You.” I know she can’t hear me, but I say it anyway—and if she’s any good at reading lips, she’ll haul her ass over here right quick. 
Her cup is passed. Skirt gets smoothed out. Chin tilts high. 
She heads over. 
Good girl. 
“Follow me,” I order her when we’re on the outskirts of the room. When we’re clear across the office common area, I pivot to face her. 
She’s shorter, even in heels, so I have to dip my head to glare at her. “Want to tell me exactly what the fuck is going on in there?”

She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets, and fancies herself British. She lives with her husband, children, and her ridiculously large dog. 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

She might want me too; but she's not giving in that easy...

Bearded Lumberjack in Hat holding a big Axe on Shoulder Review
I've been anxiously awaiting this book and let me tell you... it DID NOT disappoint! I was excited to get Miles’ best friend, Sam’s story.  Maggie came into his life unexpectedly and knocked him off his feet. He was immediately drawn to her and I found myself smiling to myself and laughing out loud at their meet cute.  They didn’t know each other but they were drawn to one another.  Poor Maggie had a rough go of it and was trying to prove something to her ex.  Sam got caught up in her pursuit.  Not that he was complaining! I enjoyed the ease they had with one another and when they put two-and-two together and learned who they were, they had to reevaluate some.  But Sam didn’t let that deter him from getting to know Maggie and spending time with her. Their story was sweet, sexy, fun and exciting.  I was so caught up in their story that I didn’t even highlight very many passages because I was loving it and totally in the moment! I also enjoyed the chapter titles, they were cute!  I think you’ll also fall for this book hook, line and sinker! Be sure not to miss out and grab your copy! 
“Maggie,” I state, my voice deep in warning. “Stop worrying about Sterling and live in this moment. We are in the middle of a hot spring, surrounded by rocks and mountains and snow and nature and…life. Your ex should be the last thing on your mind. You should be taking this all in.” 
 “I am taking it all in,” she snaps back defensively. 
 “But are you? Are you really?” I stare deep into her eyes, not in judgment but in understanding. “I know you have a plan, but sometimes plans need to be forgotten so you don’t miss out on life.” “Life? Like right now? With you?” she says the words slowly like each one is a sweet she’s tasting for the first time. 
 “Hell, maybe,” I reply, my voice growing deeper from the darkened look in her eye. “You seem busy living for a fictional future. Maybe it’s time to stop turning the pages for a bit.” 
 The corners of her lips twitch as she watches me for a breath. Her tongue darts out to wet her lips as she pulls her bottom one in with her teeth. She turns around to prop her arms on the rocks, her eyes taking in the scenery all around us. She exhales heavily and then turns to sit on her knees in front of me. 
 My eyes take in that luscious body of hers, curvy in all the right places and smooth like velvet. Leaning in until her face is only inches from mine, she says, “Kiss me, Sam.” 
 “What?” I ask with a laugh and pull away from her, assuming this must be her idea of a joke. 
 She bites her lip and narrows her eyes with determination. “Kiss me.” 
 “What are you doing?” I shift nervously in the water to put more space between us. I swear to God, the temperature of the water has just risen ten degrees. 
 Lifting her shoulders, she replies, “I’m living life in the moment.” 
 “But you want your ex back.” A fact she shouldn’t need to be reminded of. 
 “I do…someday.” Her eyes wander down to my chest. “But he’s not here tonight. And you’re a short-term kind of guy, and I’m a temporarily single girl. So why don’t we live in the moment right now…together?” 
 “You don’t want this,” I reply with a shake of the head, gulping down the contents of my glass in one swig. I set it down and hoist myself up on the edge of the rocks, needing some cool air to clear my head. 
 “I think I do,” she replies, lifting her brows at me. “I know I do. I’ve wanted it since the day we met.” 
 “It’s true. Why do you think I threw myself at you in your fishing hut, Sam?” 
 My body roars to life at that memory, of her body close to mine, of feeling her in my arms and tasting her perfect lips. Maggie could kiss. Even in her haste, she knew how to kiss. 
 Maggie moves closer to me like a tentative cub tracking its first prey. She kneels between my legs, and I tense when she runs her hands up the outside of my calves. “You’re a good guy, Sam. You may not be a long-term kind of guy, but that’s not what I’m looking for from you anyway.” 
 Her hands roll over my quads, shooting a zinger right up my groin to my cock. I reach down and grip her hands harshly to stop their movement. “What are you looking for exactly, Maggie? Be very fucking specific.” 
 Her long black lashes are wet from the steam as she looks up at me and quirks her brow as she replies. “I’m asking for no-strings fucking.” 
 “Jesus Christ,” I growl and have to force myself to look away from her. She looks way too fucking hot right now in that little black bikini, her breasts pressing together from the position of her hands on my thighs, and her blue eyes wide and innocent. My dick develops its own heartbeat as it presses into my board shorts. 
 How did this evening turn into Maggie seducing me? I’m fucking nine years older than her, for God’s sake. I should be the one seducing her. But all of a sudden, she’s the alluring bait dangling right in front of me, and I’m a fish who hasn’t eaten in weeks. 
 I look at her with pleading eyes. “Your brother will kill me.” 
 She smiles a sexy smile, that dimple in her cheek ever present. “Miles doesn’t need to know about my sex life.”

Stacey Kennedy - Perfectly Inappropriate review

I looooooved this book! Olivia has had a rough go of things and with the help of her friend, she decides to do something daring and completely different. She joins a BDSM dating app and doesn’t know what to expect.  Noah and Olivia were perfectly matched.  However, they received more than they bargained for! I loved the interactions between these two.   Their story was epic and the chemistry palpable.  This was a hot, sexy story but it also came with ALL. THE. FEELS.  I couldn’t read this book fast enough.  If you’re looking for a  believable story with heart, heat and perfection, this is the story for you!  Do yourself a favor and grab this book. I can’t recommend this book enough! 

A woman scorned and a politician with a wild side connect online—and explore their hottest fantasies in the flesh.

Olivia Watts knows that her problems are painfully average. She got engaged, and her fiancĂ© cheated. She gave up on her dream job—street photographer—and settled on a more practical one: graphic designer. She scrimped and saved to buy a home, only to realize how empty it was. So when Olivia hears about an exclusive dating app that matches subs with highly trained doms, she does something she never thought she’d do in a million years: She signs up. The last thing she expects to find is a man whose sizzling touch reawakens the woman she used to be. . . .

Noah Grant has no time for relationships. His sole purpose is to win reelection. That’s why he pays a premium to the discreet app that satisfies all his dark desires. But after sweet, innocent Olivia is vetted and arrives for their week together in his penthouse, it’s blatantly clear that she’s running from her demons. Noah’s more than willing to be her escape—until their emotions get tangled up in their games. Now, to become worthy of Olivia’s heart, Noah will have to prove that he’s more than a fantasy.

Kendall Ryan - Hunky Heartbreaker review and excerpt

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a new story in her Whiskey Kisses series… Everything’s bigger in Texas. And that includes Duke Wilder’s sexual appetite. Together with his twin brother, he runs a whiskey distillery, and when their business takes off—suddenly he’s got it all. Success. Money. Family. But he doesn’t have a woman to share it with. When Valentina storms into his life, her presence is only supposed to be temporary. She’s a feisty attorney hired to help clean up his company’s recent legal mess. He never counted on her being the one to turn his whole world upside down. After spending most of his life living in the shadow of his brother, Duke has something to prove, and he’s not about to let this distraction get in the way of his plans, no matter how hot things get.

 **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**  



My Review

I love getting sucked into Kendall's worlds! This was a really fast-paced, quick read for me and I couldn't consume it fast enough.  I loved how this story was a little different from her norm. The heat between Duke and Valentina was quick and escalated quickly.  However, it still felt realistic.  I was lost in their story and enjoyed seeing  their interactions. The chemistry between them was palpable through the pages.  A little legal trouble for Luke and Duke brought something entirely unexpected for both Duke and Valentina.  I enjoyed the ease they had with one another and even though they had a whirlwind romance, it held my attention and I couldn’t read this book fast enough! If you like sassy heroines and sexy heroes then be sure to grab this book! 

  “Good morning, darlin’. Could I interest you in some breakfast sausage?” 
 The woman turned, her long, dark curls swinging around her shoulders. A look of disgust quickly washed over her face as her eyes locked on my bulge. 
 “Ay dios mio, you’ve got to be f#cking kidding me,” she muttered, immediately taking her briefcase from the counter and marching to the front door, her red-bottomed heels clacking loudly on the hardwood. 
 “What’s the matter?” I asked, stumbling after her. 
 “Last time I do a favor for a friend,” she said under her breath, slamming the front door shut behind her. 
 Favor. Friend. Beautiful woman in a pencil skirt. Charlotte’s hotshot lawyer friend from Los Angeles. 
  Oh f#ck. 
 “Hey, uh, Valencia, wait up!” 
 I burst through the door to find her paused on the top step of the porch. She turned sharply to look me dead on, the fire in her eyes enough to burn me straight through. 
 “It’s Valentina,” she spat, crossing her arms and cocking her hip to the side. 
 “Valentina, right. My mistake. Listen, I’m really sorry about all this. We were out late last night for—” 
 “For the opening, I know. I was supposed to be there, but something came up at work. So instead, I got my ass onto a last-minute redeye to make it in time for our meeting this morning, but clearly you had other things in mind,” she said, her eyes flitting to my quickly-softening cock before turning again to leave. 
 “No, please, don’t go. This is completely unprofessional, I know—” 
 “That’s the understatement of the century.” 
 “But I promise, if you give me a chance, we can turn this meeting around.” 
 “Is it still a meeting when one person shows up with his dick out?” 
 “Oh, trust me, sweetheart, if my dick was out, you’d know it.” 
 “Sure, as long as I brought a magnifying glass with me.” 
 I paused, standing up a little straighter. She squared her shoulders, and our eyes locked, the tension between us thick enough to cut with a knife. 
 If we were going to make this work, I knew I had to be the one to budge. But dammit if this woman didn’t make me want to blow my lid. 
 “Look, I’m sorry. Please stay. If not for me, then for Luke and Charlotte.” 
 Valentina sighed and put a hand on her hip. 
 “Fine. Put some goddamn pants on first, and then we’ll talk.”

J.D. Hollyfield - Exquisite Taste review and excerpt

We are so excited to be bringing you the release of EXQUISITE TASTE by J.D. Hollyfield. If you love your romance with a side of naughty humor, then this is the book for you--be sure to grab your copy today!

He was a dare she couldn’t walk away from.
She was a game he was determined to win.
Jensen Stone was thriving in her first year of college. So thirsty for success she could already taste the achievements on her lips. Nothing would get in the way of her dreams, not even the social pressures of pledging. Until one night, she finds herself in the lion’s den of sorority row, accepting a dare she knew she couldn’t complete.
Damien Cross was bored. He no longer craved the dominance and control he had swirling in the palms of his powerful hands. He was determined to walk away from the empire he'd spent the last ten years building. What he didn’t factor in was the unexpected distraction. He might be angry at her inconvenient timing, but the urge to break the new toy dangling in front of him was all consuming. It wouldn’t hurt to play one last time.
One night. His rules.
Will she obey his demands to fulfill a dare?
Or will she realize his dark tastes are anything but exquisite?

My Review

I've had J.D. Hollyfield on my TBR for awhile now and I've got her books on my kindle, waiting their turn, but this was the first book I've read of hers and I couldn't put it down! I completely devoured this read. Jensen marches to the beat of her own drum.  She doesn't let anyone tell her what to do. But I loved how her mouth gets ahead of her. It got her into a little predicament, but she was determined to get out of it! The chemistry between Jensen and Damien was palpable through the pages ...  this book was hot and steamy! She was nothing like what he was usually attracted to, but there was just something about her  And what started out as one thing, turned in to so much more.
I enjoyed the dynamics between the characters and the things that made them the way they were.  I was captured by this couple and this book had some twists and turns I definitely didn't see coming!  Now I'm anxious for the next book!  I can't recommend this book enough! Grab your copy today.


I caress the bare flesh of her neck with my thumb, my voice dropping an octave. “Tell me, what would you do if I pushed you against this door, pressed my lips here…” I press into the spot just below her ear. “And stroke my tongue exactly where your pulse is beating erratically?”

I take a slow step toward her, closing the gap between us, and she retreats one step back. “You know what that means?” I press harder over her vein. “The way your heart rate has picked up? The way all five senses yell danger, yet your endorphins are letting off a hormonal sensor that screams curiosity even louder. You’re not one of those girls, but the fact that you haven’t bothered to fight me off yet tells me you may want to be.”

Her lips part and I get the sudden desire to shove my tongue inside her mouth. I take another step forward and get the pleasure of her body pressed against mine. I smile at her loss of confidence as she gasps, realizing her mistake. She shuffles back, and I follow step for step until her back hits the door and I have her cornered. My head dips and goose bumps rise over her skin beneath my fingertips as my warm breath coasts along her flesh.

“I’ve had my hand around your neck for over a minute and a half now,” I whisper against her earlobe. “You haven’t even screamed for help, nor tried to fight me off. Haven’t even shown a bit of defiance for someone who isn’t into ‘sick petting shit.’” I end with my mouth a hairsbreadth from her neck, her pulse so erratic, I almost feel the vibrations on my lips. Her breath quickens. If I wanted to take this farther, she’d let me. No questions asked.

​But she’s far from what I need.

​Jensen tilts her head slightly to the side, allowing me better access to her neck, and I release her. She stumbles back and falls limp against the door at my brute action, but I don’t bother to help steady her. “As I said, no.” I take a step to the side. “Goodnight, Ms. Jensen.” I reach for the door, enjoying the fire that ignites in her emerald green eyes.


​My grip tightens around the handle as my dick rages with need. Twice, she’s had the nerve to speak to me with such a tongue. Her mouth pisses me off, but the thought of punishing her for it turns me red hot.

I need her gone.

I throw the door open, and she jumps. “That I may be, pet, but I’m an asshole who has no room for the plain likes of you. Just as you said, your unlikeliness to survive one night in this club is the reason why applying would be nonsense. Go home, back to your pampered life. Return to whoever allowed you to borrow their dress, which looks horrendous on you, and forget about your silly dare. You’ve wasted enough of my time. Out.”

My words are harsh, but they do the job. I’ve driven her mute. If she’s smart, she’ll stay that way and leave my office. At least read the cold look on my face. No one, even a child like herself, insults me in my own club.

​“You can try to offend me all you want, I don’t give a shit. Trust me, you aren’t anything to call home about either.”

​I laugh. “I’m deeply wounded, but I haven’t gotten to where I am by being nothing to call home about.”

​“Well, you disgust me.” She crosses her arms over her chest, making her breasts more appealing.

​“Noted. Out you go.” I place my hand on her back to help her out, but it gets shoved off.

​“Do not touch me.”

​Strike three. My hand twitches, fighting off the need to grace her ass with a good smack. Teach her a lesson for being so disobedient. “You’re really testing my patience,” I grit out between clenched teeth. “I suggest you leave before I have you escorted out by your hair.”

​Her mouth drops instantly. It wasn’t my intention to speak that harshly, but my temper is at its breaking point. If I don’t get her out of my sight, I can’t be responsible for what I might do.

​“You know what? With pleasure.” She turns and steps outside my office, spinning back. “Have fun burning in hell, son of Satan.”

​“I most certainly will, Ms. Jensen.”

​And then my vision of her is cut off by the door slamming in her face. My heart rate picks up, my hands at a small jitter. Lifting my palms, I wipe the stress from my face and walk back to the mirrored window. After a few moments, I see her storm through the crowd, then turn and lift her middle finger to the window. I laugh at her courageousness—which is so unlike me. No one has attempted to speak to me like that in a very long time.

​Not three minutes later, a knock sounds as the door opens. “Damien, the girl’s being put in a cab.”

​“Good.” I turn away from the window and head toward my desk. “I want to know the location of where she’s dropped off. Then I want to know everything about her.”

​“Damien—” Fredrick hesitates, trying to argue, but I cut him off.
