Review: ★Sanctum★ by Lexi Blake

Sanctum (Masters and Mercenaries, #4.5)Sanctum by Lexi Blake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This novella was like the perfect quickie; not quite as long as you’d like it, yet oddly satisfying.

I really can never go wrong with a book by Lexi Blake, and this one was certainly no exception. I have been absolutely in lust with the Masters and Mercenaries series from the very first book, The Dom Who Loved Me. While many of my favorite characters from the past books made an appearance, this novella can easily be read as a standalone.

Eighteen months ago Ryan Church lost everything; his business and his millions. Distraught and facing jail time for a fraud that he didn’t commit, he doesn’t feel that he can uphold his end of the contract with the beautiful submissive that he’s fallen in love with. So he does the only thing that he feels is right – he lets her go.… Read more

Tuesday Man Candy

Well my darling dirty birds, today is Tuesday, which according to my Dirty Girl Calender has been officially deemed as Man Candy Day. So let me present you with all the deliciousness that is Eric Belanger.
I mean, I ask you, who can resist that face? I think I found my go-to casting for pretty much any hero with dark hair and blue eyes. YUM!
The best part?
He looks even better with less clothes on 😉

 

 

 

 

 

Why do I have a sudden have an urge to go swimming??

ARC review: Blaze of Secrets by Jessie Donovan

Blaze of Secrets (Asylums for Magical Threats, #1)Blaze of Secrets by Jessie Donovan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

What did I think? I’m still not quite sure…

I didn’t love this one, nor did I hate it either. It had all the makings to a great book for me, the writing was good, the characters intriguing, steamy, with fantastic world building. Yet somewhere along the way, it just fell flat. Not enough for me to put it down, but enough that it did take me longer than usual to finish it. I tend to rate books based on how unputdownable it is for me. While I was curious enough to finish it, I had no problems putting it down for a while to go back to it later.

My first love is PNR, considering the series that first sucked me into the wonderful world of books was Black Dagger Brotherhood. So I have a bit of a soft spot when it comes to PNR and discovering new authors.… Read more

Review: Sinister Kisses (SKALS) by Adriana Noir

Sinister Kisses (SKALS, #1)Sinister Kisses by Adriana Noir
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars



“Death is the only thing that could ever tear us apart, and even that would fail. Somehow, some way, I would find you.

ALL ABOARD!The crazy Train!

Calling all passengers! Calling all passengers!
This is your final call to board the crazy train, destination…fuck if I know!

Please be advised that you may find parts of your journey disturbing, fucked up, and probably unlike any other ride you’ve ever taken.

I would like to take this time to introduce you to your fellow passengers.
First, let’s meet Taylor

No need to apologize just yet Taylor…or do…whatever. Passengers are advised to attempt and disregard her sporadic crying, apologizing for shit she didn’t really do, and for just generally being a naive girl that will act like a wounded puppy for the duration of our trip.

Let’s now move on to Sebastian, shall we?… Read more

Savage Rhythm by Chloe Cox

Savage Rhythm (Club Volare, #6)Savage Rhythm by Chloe Cox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

You’ll burn baby. You’ll burn. For me.

So it’s really no secret that I love a good BDSM romance. Know why?

While the dynamic between Declan and Molly is that of a D/s, I’d call this book BDSM lite :). It was a sexy romance, but there wasn’t heavy BDSM elements like you’d find in say, Cherise Sinclair or Kallypso Masters. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the hell out of it. Because I have definitely found me a new author to read. This was my first book in the series, and I’ll definitely be going back to read the rest of them now. I’m hooked!

Declan is the lead singer of Savage Heart. A few months ago, after an incident in Philadelphia that’s shrouded in mystery, caused Declan to throw out his best friend and lead guitarist, Sorren, out of the band.… Read more

ARC review: Reckless by Skye Jordan

Reckless (Renegades, #1)Reckless by Skye Jordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ Panty-melting Stars







If this was passion, it was more intense that anything she’d ever felt. Overwhelming. Obsessive. Dark

So if my inner dirty girl had an imaginary interview with the characters of this book, wonder what it would go like?
Well no need to wonder, because I’ll appease your curiosity.

All character quotes came directly from the book, I’m not that creative 😉

ME:
So Jex, you’ve just been screwed over yet again by a beautiful woman that used you for your connections as a famous stuntman in the movie industry. How does that make you feel?

JAX:
I’m so sick of this bullshit.

ME:
Uh huh…Uh huh…I can understand that. Do you think it has something to do with the fact that you tend to pick your women just based on the fact that they’re good looking? OK, no need to glare at me…moving on.… Read more

ARC review: Maverick by Anna Cruise

MaverickMaverick by Anna Cruise
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The ocean was an extension of myself, the only place where I could find solace and peace. And even though I’d lost my best friend to it, I couldn’t let it go, couldn’t turn my back to it. I couldn’t exist without it.

There was something in his voice, in his eyes, something that hinted there really was more to him than the public persona I’d read about. He was damaged.

If I’m being honest here, what initially drew me in to read this was the hot cover. What? Like you’ve never done that! Please!

I was so happy to find that this book was filled with more depth than I had when I was choosing it. 🙂

Kellan Handler is a professional surfer. It is all he’s ever dreamed of doing, and the ocean is the only thing that is able to give him peace.… Read more

“You’ve got your way, the way you are and the way you are with the ones you care about. And that tells me, a man gets in there, you give that to him, the children you give him, that man will be all kinds of lucky. And I’ve decided we’re gonna see if that man is me.”

Well, Ava & Luke and Sadie & Hector still hold first place for my favorite Rock Chick couple, but I have to admit that Ally and Ren definitely came in at a very close second.

I can’t say that this was my favorite book in the series, but I will tell you that it was a fantastic conclusion to the series.

So what was my favorite part of Rock Chick Revolution, you ask? I have a one word answer for that: REN.… Read more

Release Me (The Stark Trilogy #1) by J. Kenner

Release Me (Stark Trilogy, #1)Release Me by J. Kenner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Damien Stark is just one of those dark, quiet types. He’s like an iceberg, Texas. The deep parts are well hidden and what you do see is hard and a little bit cold.”

Well what can I tell you about my thoughts on this book…

seems to be an adequate description.

I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it. To be honest, I’m having a hard time remembering anything about it and I just finished reading it.

I never really connected with the story, or the characters. I suppose you can say it was a case of ‘been there, read that’.

There was Nikki:

Nikki is a former Texas beauty queen, currently working for a company that is looking for Damien Stark’s investment. Thankfully she wasn’t an excessively naive virgin, but she still gave me an eye roll or 12 through the book.… Read more

I want him to own me. I want him to do whatever he wants. I want to give in to my own shaking need and trembling desire. I want him to show me what I’ve never known.

So…uh…yea…Dawson was Delicious. As for the rest of the book? *long suffering sighs*
Let me just take you on my emotional journey through the tear-fest (not mine) that was this book.
