Release Date: November 6, 2018

Re-released in a second edition with new content.

For psychologist Leo Meyer, peace and comfort come through strict discipline and order. It’s one of the reasons he was chosen by Julian Lodge to be the Dom in residence at his club. His time there has been a near-perfect existence filled with a daily routine free from the chaos of emotional attachment. With the exception of his brief relationship with Shelley McNamara, that is. She may have been the only woman he ever truly loved, but he was confident he had put her out of his mind until she walked into his club on the arm of another man.

Shelley McNamara is tired of waiting for her new life to begin. After finally finding freedom from an abusive marriage, she is eager to discover who she really is. After her encounter with Leo Meyer, she knows that the first thing she wants to explore is the lifestyle he exposed her to during their brief time together. She’s been promised her new Dom will be an excellent fit, but she can’t imagine anyone could fill the hole left by Leo. Until she sees Master Wolf.

After a devastating injury forced his retirement from the Navy SEALs, Wolf has been restless and lost. Hoping to reconnect with his estranged family in Dallas, Wolf accepted a new job working for Julian Lodge. His first assignment is training a beautiful woman named Shelley. Her fiery nature unlocks feelings he didn’t know he was capable of after a life spent in combat. The closer they become, the more certain he is that she is his ideal mate. The only catch is that her relationship with Leo may not be as resolved as they both believed.

Just when Shelley believes the looming shadow of her deceased husband has finally cleared away, a dangerous killer arrives at her door seeking retribution. Leo and Wolf will have to put their grievances aside, leverage all their training, and work together to keep her safe and claim her heart.

This series has a formula that just does it for me each and every single time. It just works. Lexi sure knows how to write one deliciously sinful menage, and this one definitely didn’t disappoint. I also loved the crossover of series here between the Texas Sirens and Bliss. For those that love Bliss like I do, you’ll be excited to see Logan make an appearance here. But of course the stars of the story are Leo, Wolf and Shelley.

Leo has always had a thing for Shelley. Unfortunately Shelley has always been the woman that he wanted but couldn’t have. Shelley may not be happily married, but she’s still taken. When he finally puts his heart on the line and takes a chance, she turns him down and changes the course of their relationship. Now her husband is out of the picture, her life has been tilted on its axis through everything she’s been through, and she’s still desperately in love with Leo that looks right through her. Enter Julian with his solution; a Dom to introduce her to the lifestyle…who also happens to be Leo’s younger brother.

I love the relationship development in these books. There’s always the one man that’s all in and then there’s the broody one. Wolf was all in the second he laid eyes on Shelley. He knew she was the one and he’s determined to make things work. He also knows that the only future they have is if his stubborn brother finally sees the light. Shelley was a wonderful heroine. She certainly gives as well as she takes. And with two Doms like Leo and Wolf, let’s just say she takes a lot. Uhem.

There’s also the added element of suspense with the plot against Shelley’s life and plenty of action to spice things up. That made this already deliciously addicting read a quick paced page turner. Another fantastic addition in what’s now become my guilty pleasure series. Huge rec if you enjoy a well written MFM.

Review: Lost In Bliss by Lexi Blake

LOST IN BLISS
Series: Nights In Bliss #4
Genre: BDSM Romance, Romantic Suspense
Author: Lexi Blake
Release Date: September 25, 2018

Re-released in a second edition with new content.

Laura Niles walked out the door and never looked back. As she left Washington, DC, her career was in ruins and her love life decimated. Her desperate flight eventually led her to Bliss, Colorado, where she managed to find a new home and a little peace. That will have to be enough because Laura cannot imagine finding happiness without the men she left behind.

For five years, Rafe Kincaid and Cameron Briggs have searched for the only woman they ever loved. When she disappeared, everything became crystal clear. For one night, everything had been perfect and instead of embracing what they had found, they let it all slip away. They had let worries about their FBI careers and what others might think destroy the most precious gift they had ever been given. Now they have finally tracked her down, and they want answers.

Laura is shocked when her former loves show up in her new home. When the full force of the FBI arrives with them, Laura knows that the quirky little town is in for a rough ride. The killer that ruined her life has been watching and waiting for the opportunity to strike again. For Rafe, Cam, and Laura it’s time for second chances — to stop a monster, and to reclaim everything they lost.

AMAZON

But maybe love was a lot of different things. Maybe love was a word that defied simple explanation.

Know what I love more than a delicious second chance romance? A second chance romance where the man makes the mother of all mistakes and then have to grovel his way back in. Make that two men instead of one, add in a tough as nails heroine with just the right amount of softness to her, and wrap it around one action packed story and you’ve got yourself a winner!

This was Second Chance Romance meets Criminal Minds and I devoured it in one sitting!

Five years ago Laura was a profiler with the FBI and her profile on a notorious serial killer landed her in his sights. Barely surviving her capture, she ran as far away from DC as she could. She had nothing to come back for with her career in ruins and the two men that she fell for having made a choice that ultimately almost cost her life. She’s settled in Bliss and she’s making a life for herself, but she’s never moved on from the two men she left behind.

Rafe was an elegant bird of prey, whileCam was a huge tiger stalking his next meal.

Rafe and Cam have been searching desperately for the woman that left them for years. When they finally catch wind of her at Bliss, nothing can keep them away. Unfortunately, the serial killer is hot on their heels and determined to finish what he started five years ago.

This was such an addicting read! If you’re a Criminal Minds fan like me, you’ll be just as glued to the pages. The author gives the reader just enough of a peek inside his head to truly hook you. And while the sizzling hot romance takes place, so does the investigation and hunt for the ruthless killer.

Of course you get the quirky people of Bliss along the way. And I get my female version of Ian Taggard with the sassy Rachel.

When Callie goes into the hospital, I’m going to tell those doctors to put all the drugs they have into her epidural. All of them. And don’t you even talk about a silent birth. There’s nothing silent about birth. It’s loud. First there’s the screaming because of the contractions, and then there’s some man whining about me breaking his hand. That wasn’t what I wanted to break that day, let me tell you.”

I really enjoyed this book. I loved Laura’s strength and vulnerabilities. She’s survived something horrible, and while it left both internal and external scars on her, she’s still an incredibly strong woman. She doesn’t take any bull, especially from the two men that come in guns blazing determined to win her back.

I loved the balance of sweet and rough with Cam and Rafe. And while there’s nothing sexual in their relationship, their bond was evident. Lost In Bliss was a sizzling MFM menage with plenty of feels and even more suspense. We also get to see the story with Holly, Alexei, and Caleb develop further. I can’t wait to get my hands on their book!

Review: Two To Love by Lexi Blake

TWO TO LOVE
Series: Nights In Bliss #2
Genre: Erotic Romance
Author: Lexi Blake
Release Date: May 1, 2018

Three lost souls

Growing up in the eclectic, small town of Bliss was wonderful for Callie Sheppard. She loved everything about it, except for the lack of potential romantic partners. She only went wild once in her life, sharing a perfect weekend in Dallas with two incredible men she never thought she would see again. When they parted, she was left with a hole in her heart she feared would never be filled.

One romantic weekend

DEA agents Nathan Wright and Zane Hollister were thrilled when Callie agreed to spend the weekend with them. Just days away from a long, undercover assignment, they considered this passionate affair to be an ideal way to spend their last days of freedom. They never expected to fall in love. Leaving her behind was the hardest decision of their lives.

An unexpected reunion

Six years later, Callie is preparing to break in a new sheriff after Rye Harper walked out on the job. Her heart skips a few beats when the man walking through the door is none other than Nate Wright. Nate and Zane have come to Bliss, but their time undercover has left them broken and scarred. The boys are determined to win back Callie’s heart. But when the criminals they took down come seeking revenge, Nate and Zane may have to save the strange little town of Bliss before they can reclaim the woman they love.

AMAZON

We won’t be polite with you. There won’t be anything staid about the way we fuck you. You’re ours. We’ll take you when we want, how we want.”

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; I’m obsessed with these re-releases. I’m not sure how I’m only discovering now, considering I’ve devoured Lexi Blake’s entire backlist. But better late then never, I say. And as much as I’m enjoying her titles under Sophie Oak pen name, nothing stokes my fire more than the Nights In Bliss series. There’s just something about this deliciously kinky series with its added element of suspense that just does it for me.

Callie Harper was a character that caught my attention immediately with book 1. There were hints about a man from her past, and I couldn’t wait to learn all the kinky details. And lo and behold, but the woman was hiding not one, but two men in her past. Two incredibly sexy men that she hands her virginity to in one amazing weekend that her friend Stefan helped to set up, only to never hear from them again.

Nate and Zane are about to go on a career making undercover assignment for the DEA, and while they know they can’t have anything with the beautiful woman that immediately steals their heart, they can’t help but fall for her anyway. Only to sneak away in the early morning to never see her again. But when the assignment that they invested years into goes all kinds of wrong, they need a place to escape. And what’s better than the sleepy town of Bliss where their old friend Stefan still resides. While Zane broods and hides away at their house, Nate becomes the new town sherif. But nothing prepares him for the quirkiness of the town or the potency of his feelings for the woman still residing there that he’s never gotten over.

With these two men she wasn’t Callie, the shoulder to cry on, the responsible one. With Nate and Zane, she was a lover, a sexy vixen who took two men at once and left both of them satisfied.

I loved Callie’s sass and the way she didn’t just roll over and take Nate’s grumpiness of dealing with the quirky town and it’s people. I also loved the way she wasn’t afraid to give as good as she got. I certainly didn’t expect for the broody and broken Zane to be the sweet and easy one in the menage, but man did I love the sparks between them. I loved watching Nate fall deeper and deeper under the spell of the town and Callie. And while this was an MFM coupling, I still loved the bond he had with Zane. Even if my inner perv did want them to get it on at times. What? Like you wouldn’t.

I thought I loved the first book in the series, but this one was even better. I already can’t wait to see what the next one brings and to see the domineering Stef finally brought to his knees by a woman.

Two To Love had everything; fun secondary characters, a great story with some action packed suspense, and of course some steamy menage action. I couldn’t get enough of it!

Review: Triple Trouble by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

She wasn’t looking to fall in love with one man. Never mind two.

Juliet Reece grew up in the shadow of her seemingly perfect older sister, Margo Reece. While Juliet’s wealthy, blue-blood parents dealt with infidelity, Juliet fought for normalcy. Now she’s the bassist in Warning Sign, a band on the rise, and she finally feels like she’s making space for herself in the world. It’s her time to shine, and she’s ready to have fun and focus on her career.

Until Randy “Sparks” Pruitt nearly blows up her life. Literally.

She can’t stand the guy. She definitely hasn’t fantasized about gripping a handful of his hair and – no. Not happening.

Then there’s Tristan Eves, Sparks’ new friend. He’s the exact opposite of Sparks. Playful. Naughty. Arousing.

Suddenly, she’s on the verge of something wilder than she’s ever experienced before. Two seductive men, hers for the taking – if she can handle the heat.

If double trouble is dangerous, watch out for the power of three…

It shouldn’t have made sense. Shouldn’t have worked. This was an activity meant for two, right? Three should’ve been a crowd. Except she couldn’t have imagined it any other way than exactly this.

Do you see those pathetic looking things in the corner over there? That, my friends, is my poor overworked ovaries waving the white flag of defeat. This book went and did them in. They put up a good fight but at the end the combustible chemistry between Juliet, Randy, and Tristan was just too much for them. May they rest in peace, the poor f*ckers. But damn, what a way to go.

She was light and heat and the smoky hint of salted caramel in a rich coffee. A man wanted to savor her for a whole night.
THIS man wanted to fuck her blind and make her breakfast in the morning.

Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott are the magicians of dirty. Magicians, I tells ya. These two wrote a book so dirty, it put dirty to shame. It’s like triple dirty. Ha! See what I did there? But I digress. Where was I? *pause for dirty visual of one particular book scene*
And I’m back!

It’s not often I read a book that has this much sex in it that I connect with. Because mostly I get tired of all the sex and find myself craving more story. What? Even perverts have standards dammit! Don’t look at me like that. I will admit to devouring each and every single deliciously dirty scene in this book and absolutely loving it. Why? Because it had fantastic characters and wrapped around an amazing story that together with all of the dirty made for one spicy little read.

I love that no matter what they write, the characters all interconnect. If you’ve read Rocked and met Harper Pruitt, then you’ll recall her quiet and unassuming brother, Randy, roadie to Warning Sign. Tristan is the sexy chef that was also introduced in the Lost In Oblivion series. And Juliet? She’s the younger sister of Margo Reece, who you’ll remember from Destroyed. And if you haven’t read Lost In Oblivion, no worries, you won’t be lost. But you’ll appreciate this series so much more if you have since it is the sexy spin off. But I digress again.

Randy has been the roadie for Warning Sign for years, and been practically in love with the band’s beautiful bassist, just as long. But aside from sniping and growling at him for wrong lighting and the almost disaster at the one show that Randy still blames himself for, she never paid him the time of day. Enter Tristan, chef, playboy, and Randy’s best friend and roommate. When the chemistry between Tristan and Juliet is too much to deny, Tristan doesn’t miss his friend’s feelings on the matter. And what should have been equal parts dare and invitation soon begins to turn into more than either of them ever expected.

We own you tonight.”

Sweet mother of all that’s holy, this book was freaking hot. HOT. If you’re looking for a healthy balance of story and hot sex, look no further. You’ll get that in spades. But fair warning, I’d advise you have plenty of ice, batteries, or your significant other on hand as you’re reading. Otherwise some side effects might ensue…
