Faelan is a passionate Master with a hidden past that holds him hostage.
Having his heart recently broken, he accepts the challenge of keeping Brie safe and vows to protect her by
But when a curvy little sub catches his eye at the Haven, he is forced to choose loyalty over love.
His allegiance lies with his friends at The Center, and the time has come to prepare their rescue of Rytsar Durov—one of their own
It’s so hard to believe that we are up to book 14! It’s been quite an amazing journey with Brie and Sir Thane Davis. Not to mention all of the other wonderful people we’ve met along the way, mostly yummy doms like Master Anderson, Tono Nosaka, Marquis Grey, and of course our favorite Russian dom, Rytsar Durov, who’s now in a bit of trouble.
Hopefully, you’ve all been reading the series since book one, because there is so much going on! I’m not going to give away too much here as I don’t want to ruin the experience for anyone, but you really should get this series. It’s just that great!
I will say, Mary…definitely gone off the high dive board and into that deep end. I was a wee bit disappointed that we were introduced to Kylie and didn’t get very much of her. (You’ll have to get the book to find out!) But, I gained a whole new respect for Faelan in this book. I was hot and cold with him previously, but it’s the Brie-spell! And Ohhh The End! Thank goodness we don’t have to wait too long to find out what happens!
“I have selected a rather self-indulgent request tonight. You see, there is a sub in the audience I’ve had my eye on for a while. Tonight, I will be playing out her fantasy…”
He pulled out the note and read it, making a few changes in the wording. “This sub would like to be tied up so she is completely vulnerable to my favorite instruments.” He saw Kylie perk up. Staring directly at her, he continued, “She also stated ‘I want to know his Dominant touch and not be able to do anything about it.”
Kylie stared at him with a stunned expression as the other subs in the crowd looked at her with envy.
“Would you step forward and join me?” Faelan asked, holding out his hand to her.
Kylie’s eyes widened, but she didn’t make a move.
Faelan cocked his head and smiled, waiting patiently.
Kylie approached him, looking like a deer caught in the headlights. He kept his gaze on her, making sure they didn’t lose eye contact. When she was close enough, he took her hand to pull her to him.
The moment their skin touched she audibly gasped.
Leaning in, he asked in a low whisper, “Do you really want to scene with me tonight or should I let you go?”

I’m a big fan of menagè books, especially when it’s two guys, what’s not to love about that? When it’s two guys who are already in a relationship with each other? Well….then it has to be really good for me to be interested in it. I know I’m probably one of the few women who don’t get off on MM books, but that’s me.

His task might well be deadly. He sure can’t afford to get involved with a woman—especially his captivating neighbor. Although he hungers to be near her, to enjoy her clear laugh, her easy friendship, and the peace she brings wherever she goes, a relationship is absolutely out of the question.
Why won’t his heart obey orders?
New York Times bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, is happy to introduce a new Wicked Horse club in Las Vegas and you’re cordially invited to attend the grand opening…
As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.
Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.
As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.
I’m Maxon Reed—real estate mogul, shark, asshole. If a deal isn’t high profile and big money, I pass. Now that I’ve found the property of a lifetime, I’m jumping. But one tenacious bastard stands between me and success—my brother. I’ll need one hell of a devious ploy to distract cynical Griff. Then fate drops a luscious redhead in my lap who’s just his type.
Sassy college senior Keeley Kent accepts my challenge to learn how to become Griff’s perfect girlfriend. But somewhere between the makeover and the witty conversation, I’m having trouble resisting her. The quirky dreamer is everything I usually don’t tolerate. But she’s beyond charming. I more than want her; I’m desperate to own her. I’m not even sure how drastic I’m willing to get to make her mine—but I’m about to find out.
This book is the first in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.
This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers or cheating. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)
Sybella Gandry knows what it’s like to fight for something she wants. Her entire life has been a battle. But will one night of passion with a stranger threaten everything she’s worked so hard for?
She hoped her first meeting with the Alpha Council wouldn’t turn into a problem—but if it did, she was prepared to deal with it. The one thing she wasn’t anticipating was a wild night of passion with the male who was her fated mate the night before. She’d learned early on that having a mate with her position within the park just wasn’t possible.
Laird Connors is an Alpha’s Alpha and he’s very used to getting his way. So, true to his nature, when he meets his mate he wastes no time in showing her exactly who she belongs to—or so he thought. His little cat tries to run, but nothing will stop him from claiming what’s his.
Cooper Nelson’s SEAL career was cut drastically short when an explosion left him almost completely deaf. With so much of his pride and self-worth tied to the profession he loved above all else, Coop struggles in his nearly silent new world, his future seemingly bleak…until Commander Hurt badgers him into volunteering at the Riverton School for the Deaf. There, he meets teacher Kiera Hamilton, who opens his eyes—and his heart—to a love more fulfilling than any job could be.
Ten years his senior, Kiera can’t believe Coop would ever be interested in anything long term, but he patiently proves her wrong. And she’s not the only one enamored with the sexy former-SEAL—her impressionable first-grade students are enthralled with the man, especially Frankie. The troubled young boy flourishes with each of Cooper’s visits, which only makes Kiera fall harder.
As he learns ASL, connects with the students, and gets closer to Kiera, Coop’s happier than he’s ever been…until an attempted abduction at the school threatens to take away everything that makes his new life worth living.

Once a courtesan, not always a courtesan. It’s time to move on, and who better to do it with than a rake?
Theresa Kyle, ex-courtesan, will not kowtow to any man in marriage, let alone an odious ex-pupil. When the man rejects her refusal of his proposal, she reluctantly agrees to seek help.
Jamie, the Earl of Weston, is in a fix of his own. The marriage mart is not for him, let alone a compulsory wedding due to the machinations of his mother.
A mutual friend seems to have the perfect solution. The earl and the courtesan—what better way to foil those who want to see them married against their wills?
Alas, the best-laid plans go awry, for neither had expected to fall in love. Needless to say, as far as Jamie is concerned, being a member of the aristocracy comes in handy when you need to bend the rules to your will. Convincing Theresa, however, may well be harder than winning over the ton.
Trace Davidson is determined to protect Christie from her ex-husband who has ordered a hit on her from his jail cell. Trace will do anything it takes, including putting his own life on the line, to make sure Christie survives.
Salvatore Reyes of the Jimenez Cartel intends to make sure his ex-wife never makes it to the witness stand to testify against him.

Intimate relationships haven’t worked out for Chelsea. She feels like a freak because of her secret desires, and because of her poor body image, she doesn’t believe herself lovable.
Slade Taylor, the Dom at Sensations who introduces her to impact play during one erotic night at the club, is everything she’s ever dreamed of. Handsome, charming, and in control. Slade also has been unlucky in love, but would a man like him be interested in anything beyond this experiment with her? Is it possible Chelsea has finally found the man of her dreams?

My childhood was stolen by a monster. I’ve forgotten what love feels like. What happiness feels like. What hope feels like. I am numb.
He’s possibly as damaged as I am. Maybe even more. Scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. He doesn’t speak. He doesn’t smile. He hides in the woods like an animal. I should be scared of him. But I’m not. He’s the only one that has ever made me feel. And I want to make him feel, too.
Jada Michaels has been lusting after Detective Ryder Lemaster for two years, but failed to get more than a passing nod from him at the police station.

After he tries to dissuade her by making a bet and losing, Jada agrees to let Ryder tutor her in order to attend a private party with all the suspects invited as guests.

To his astonishment, and hers, she responded without fail to every hard slap and every dominant demand. But after losing his wife to cancer, he swore off relationships and refuses to let his need for Jada go any further than their short foray into the investigation.

As Drew’s feelings for Shelby grow, so does the danger. From the streets of Dallas to Austin’s high-tech business world, Drew and Shelby play a game begun twenty years before—a game they will win, or die trying.

Star Struck, a sexy, standalone fromNew York Times Bestseller Laurelin Paige is live!
She uses her fame as a wall around her heart, and only he can tear it down.
Seth Rafferty knows Heather Wainwright’s type.
Leggy and blonde. Yeah, he knows the drill.
He’s been a Hollywood production designer far too long to have patience for A-listers with a superior attitude. Beautiful women with a chip on their shoulder are a dime a dozen.
Which is why his obsession with Heather makes no sense. Nothing about her is attractive.
Except the vulnerability under the sass. The honesty under the attitude.
So when wrap-party flirting gets carried away, Seth doesn’t stop it from turning into a sizzling night of passion. Too late, he realizes, one night isn’t going to get her out of his system.
On to plan B: uncover the real woman under the diva.
Soon Heather will find out that Seth isn’t just a simple carpenter she can use and lose without consequences. He’ll play the part of the builder, but it’s her walls he intends to break down.
In typical Laurelin Paige fashion, we have a fun, enemies to lovers read in Starstruck. I honestly wasn’t too fond of the main character, Hollywood actress Heather Wainwright. But as we get further into the story, we find out that she is using her rather stuck-up behavior as a shield to hide her past.
Enter Seth Rafferty, Heather figures he’s just a set builder and rather beneath her. Seth decides not to correct that misconception and to teach her a lesson. You can all see where this is going yeah?
A rather fun book with some moments that had me smiling.
USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

Title: Bullets & Bonfires
Author: Autumn Jones Lake
About Bullets & Bonfires:
The one man she’s always wanted is now the sexy sheriff of their hometown.
Battered but not broken, grad student Brianna Avery returns to the childhood home she abandoned four years ago. With her abusive ex behind bars, Bree needs the summer to relax and recover before returning to school. But her overprotective brother decides she needs someone to babysit her in his absence, and he picks the one person guaranteed to drive her nuts.
She’s the one woman he can’t have.
Telling Bree no has never been easy. Four years ago, Liam Hollister did it to preserve his friendship with his best friend—Brianna’s brother. Now, no matter how she tempts him, he’s determined to do the right thing. As deputy sheriff of their rural area, Liam is torn between protecting Brianna and wanting her for himself.
Take a risk or lose the chance.
Spending so much time alone together challenges them both. Old feelings and hurts resurface immediately. With each hot, sweaty day it’s harder to deny their attraction.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer.
Bullets and Bonfires is a friends to lovers story, and it’s a best friend’s little sister story. I typically try very hard to avoid most of the common tropes, mostly because I have read them so much, and because they are usually overplayed. However, the blurb for this dragged me in, so I read.
We have the small town sheriff, Liam who is charged with keeping an eye out for his best friend’s little sister, Bree. Of course we all know where this is leading. But Bree has just gotten out of a pretty bad abusive relationship, and he’s in jail. He’s also got an angry brother. So we know things are going to start spicing up. I really liked the relationship between these two because Liam is such an alpha. Plus, there are lots of bad guy moments for us to savor for those of us who like suspense.
My only complaint is that the beginning was a bit confusing as to what exactly was going on, other than that, a very enjoyable read.
Autumn believes true love stories never end. She’s easily amused, a procrastinator and loves romances with true alpha heroes who cherish the sassy women they fall in love with. Her past lives include baking cookies, slinging shoes, and practicing law. Playing with her imaginary friends is her favorite job so far. Autumn prefers to write her romances on the classy side of dirty, and she’s a sucker for a filthy-talking, demanding alpha male hero. The bigger the better.
After Billionaire Aiden Walker lost his entire family in a tragic plane crash fourteen months ago, he wanted nothing more than to be left alone, so much that he fired his entire staff in exchange for his solitude.
To make it worse, he mourned his loss by drowning himself in booze at a small bar on the wrong side of town, where the local bartender became his only friend.
So just when he thinks life couldn’t get any worse, one of the families involved in the tragic accident, which also took their son, is determined to ruin him with a lawsuit that could take his sprawling Savannah estate.
Lexa Patterson has been ignored by her parents since her brother’s death and was forced to deal with the pain alone until she meets someone who is worse off than her.
When Aiden leaves his friend’s bar drunk, he crashes his motorcycle and ends up in Lexa’s ER which proves too tempting when she finds out who he is.
She has to get to know him but knows if she tells him who she is, she’ll blow her cover.
The two fall into bed, but will her lies destroy any chance for love once Aiden learns who she is?
Here’s the first thing you should know: this is not a fairytale. Happily-ever-afters are fables, and Prince Charming is a sweet little lie.
I know all this because he taught me.
Once upon a lifetime ago, the rich, arrogant, sinfully gorgeous, and tragically broken dark prince of the Hamptons was my tormentor. My darkness, my shameful attraction, my all-consuming, forbidden temptation.
I hate Sebastian Crown because nine years ago, for one night, I was stupid enough to think I loved him. And I’ve been paying for it ever since.
Except now, he needs me to help him save his empire.
…And he’s not taking no for answer.
She’s my nemesis. My addiction. My weakness.
I used to tell myself I hated Anastasia Bell – for being poor, for not worshipping the ground I walked on, for looking at me like she pitied me for being me.
When the rest of my world always told me yes, she was the ever-provoking no.
She thinks I’m a monster – a tragic, fucked-up, broken beast.
She doesn’t know the half of it.
Because she can’t begin to know the crimes of my past, or imagine the things I’ve done to her behind the scenes since she left this place.
Years ago, I thought breaking her would fix me.
I was wrong.
Now I’ve got her in my sights again, and this time, I won’t be letting her go. Even if it means we both go down in flames…
I have to say it. I find the romance market completely oversaturated with fairy tale remakes, which kind of drives me nuts. My annoyance is followed by the secret baby romance, (and all of the many baby-centric romances, makes me evil, I know!) the lovers-to-friends, billionaire takes a virgin, followed closely by anything virgin. So, what I’m trying to get across is that it takes a really special book for me to choose one of these, hence Beautiful Beast.
We have Sebastian Crown, our beast of the tale. He’s a total jerk. 9 years earlier, he humiliated and broke Anastasia Bell and ran her out-of-town. Now, she’s back, and it’s not for the reason she thinks.
Bastian is the rich guy living in a castle and Ana is the poor gardener’s daughter who Bastian lives to torment. But he has his reasons for running her out-of-town, and he has her reasons for bringing her back. Both of them are broken, can Bastien be saved?
I really enjoyed this take on Beauty and the Beast. Bastian is a complete and total jerk, but through going back and forth from when they first meet at childhood to the present, we get to see just what drives Bastian’s behavior. A wonderfully sexy take on the classic fairy tale! And Hello! Just LOOK at who is on the cover! Mmm I’m having a meltdown myself!
Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Aubrey Irons enjoys writing about bold, sassy, and intelligent women and the hot, cocky, and quite typically forbidden bad boys who love and lust for them. Gripping stories, guaranteed happy ever afters, and LOTS of heat.
In the real world, Aubrey is kept plenty entertained by her own favorite bad boy husband, their two adorable kiddos, and the world’s most ill-behaved puppy.
