Where romance finds the light
In the heart of Louisiana, the most powerful people in the South live behind elegant gates, mossy trees, and pleasant masks. Once every ten years, the pretense falls away and a tournament is held to determine who will rule them. The Acquisition is a crucible for the Southern nobility, a love letter written to a time when barbarism was enshrined as law.
Now, Sinclair Vinemont is in the running to claim the prize. There is only one way to win, and he has the key to do it — Stella Rousseau, his Acquisition. To save her father, Stella has agreed to become Sinclair’s slave for one year. Though she is at the mercy of the cold, treacherous Vinemont, Stella will not go willingly into darkness.
As Sinclair and Stella battle against each other and the clock, only one thing is certain: The Acquisition always ends in blood.
If you are looking for a story that is so wrong that you can not put the book down then this is your story.
Stella is walking innocence, and that is what makes Sinclair Vinemont want her even more. She has fire and is smart and knows there is something in her town that is not right. So when Sinclair shows up at her house and demands that she leaves with him all hell breaks loose. But when he threatens her family she feels she has no choice.
Sinclair knows when he walks out of the house with Stella that her life will never be the same again, but he has no choice. His life is not his own, but he refuses to back down. Stella is his savor but he will do what he has to and not show weakness towards her.
I will be honest, this is a messed up book. Sometimes I wanted to put it down and run away from it. I couldn’t believe what was going on at some points. But at the same time, you have to know what is coming next, you have to know if there is redemption for these characters.
Yes, this book does end on a cliffhanger and what a cliffhanger it is. But with all of these books being in KU it is well worth reading all of them. Or just purchase the box set. I loved this story and have reread it multiple times.
Lucius Vinemont has spirited me away to a world of sugar cane and sun. There is nothing he cannot give me on his lavish Cuban plantation. Each gift seduces me, each touch seals my fate. There is no more talk of depraved competitions or his older brother – the one who’d stolen me, claimed me, and made me feel things I never should have. Even as Lucius works to make me forget Sinclair, my thoughts stray back to him, to the dark blue eyes that haunt my sweetest dreams and bitterest nightmares. Just like every dream, this one must end. Christmas will soon be here, and with it, the second trial of the Acquisition.
If you have read the first book then you know you are re-entering into a world that is not nice or beautiful or kind. This is a world that will get you killed. If you’re lucky it will get you mauled and give you nightmares, and that is if you are lucky.
Stella has made it through the first steps of the Acquisition and it was so much harder than anyone even Sinclair thought it would be. When you start reading this book we come in with Stella at Lucius’s plantation after the first trial. With the second book, we focus more on Lucius and Stella and their relationship or lack thereof.
In this one, you get a better sense of who Lucius is and what he is after. Stella is in a dark hole and is trying to find a way out. Family secrets get revealed on both sides hers and Sinclair that makes her life so much harder. Will she find a place in all of this?
I loved this book as much as the first. And could not wait to go to the last one to see where all of these characters finally ended up.
The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father’s life. Now I know the stakes. The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did. But this knowledge hasn’t strengthened me. Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?
We are finally at the end of our journey with Sinclair and Stella and having been through the last two books you should know it is going to be one hell of an ending.
So now the ending of the Acquisition is coming and Stella is finally going to find out what will come to her end. Sinclair refuses to tell her what will happen or who will be there. But she knows the players now and wants to make a plan to ruin them all. But will Sinclair help her?
Sinclair has planned for this ending all his life and he will win. He wants to be king and he plans for Stella to be his queen- the winner of everything. But will things go as planned?
This is the ending you have been waiting for! I have been waiting for it for so long and finally, it is here. Loved it!
About Peep Show
A person who gains pleasure from watching others naked.
He lives across the street from me. My window looks straight into his bedroom.
At first, I try to look away. But after I see him f*cking, I’m addicted.
The way he does it is primal.
He gives in to his instincts.
He’s a ripped, tall, strong and dominant monster… And I want him.
I can’t look away.
He’s going to give me something worth watching.
But I don’t know if I can leave it at that.
I think soon, I’m going to want the tattooed, dark, muscular stranger all for myself…
My god I love Miles!
This book takes your breath away. I mean really. I felt for all of these characters the way you would for anyone. I absolutely loved this story. Even though all the pain they put each other through, and damn did Miles mess up a lot, I was still rooting for him.
Bebe is a tragically beautifully written character that is put through so much that I was really waiting for her to break. Some were at her own hands, but when it came to what Miles put her through I really thought this was it. But she is a tough bi$ch. Loved that.
This book deals with so much addiction, drug overdose, phobia’s, love, sex, complicated love, self-loathe, and emotions that you don’t usually deal with. But man it is so worth it to read.
This is a must read story. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.💖💖
About Their Spoiled Brat:
We want someone we can call our own, someone who will be our Brat.
Sharing is caring they say, or at least that’s what the Wright Twins say. Three’s never a crowd when it comes to these brothers and when Stephanie Sander’s answers their AD on a dating website, they know they’ve hit the jackpot.
Twin Alpha’s set on making every girl’s fantasy my reality. Selling my virginity was never an option until it became the only thing I had left. In order to stay in school, I needed to come up with money, and a lot of it. One date with the Wright twins and I would be set for a while, until I met them, and let them bring me back to their mansion for some drinks.
One drink led to another and before I realized it they had me in their bed, whispering dirty words in my ear. They wanted to own me and make me theirs and the worst part was I wanted to let them. I wanted to be their spoiled Brat, who did all the dirty things they desired.
There was only one pesky little problem, one thing that I failed to tell either of them: I was a virgin, and I wasn’t sure that either of them would still want me once they found out.
This is a great book. Stephanie is in need of money to finish her degree after her father is being sued and is about to lose everything. When Ryder starts messaging her and makes a date with her she never expects his brother Hawk will also be there.
This is a wonderful M/F/M book and three is never a crowd in this one!

About Always Wanting
My name is Abigail Summers, and I’m addicted to sex. Yes, you read right. I’m a woman that craves… no, needs to have a man take my body on a daily basis. If I don’t have sex at least once a day, my body shakes from withdrawals, my stomach cramps with unbearable pain, my sexually hazed mind goes haywire, and I become extremely irritable and a major bitch. This isn’t a lifestyle I’ve chosen for myself. It’s a struggle I deal with every single day.
I don’t do relationships, because what man wants to be stuck knowing his girl may be out having sex with some random guy if he’s not available? You may think this is something that I can control, but I say screw you; you’ve never been in my shoes before.
The cravings may be something I can’t control, but I’ve learned to embrace them. I’ve tried the sexual addiction support groups. I’ve tried curbing my appetites. I’ve been shunned, criticized, ridiculed, and called every nasty name under the sun. Well, I say fuck all you judgmental assholes. I’ll have sex with who I want, when I want, where I want. Embarrassment? That’s a thing of the past. This is my life now, and those that don’t like it can go straight to hell.
But then he came along and screwed everything up. Colt Maverick. For once in my life, I want more, crave more from one guy. A guy that’s sweet and doesn’t match my hard interior. A guy that looks at me like he wants to eat me alive and claim me as his own. A guy that will most definitely not be okay with my addiction. A guy that I want over and over again, not because my body demands it, but because I demand it.
I now have a new addiction. But will he be enough to satisfy my uncontrollable desires?
About Bare Yourself
My name is Tegan Zander, and I like to… bare myself. Yes, you read that right. It’s not just me I want everyone to see, but also the lucky person I’m with at the moment. No, I don’t go around whipping out my junk and pulling up skirts to flash all the Joe Blows around. Give me some credit; I’m a bit more discreet than that. Barely. No, I like to be watched while fucking. I like knowing someone else is in the room, getting off on what my partner and I are doing. This is my sexual vice, and I fucking love it.
What I don’t do is relationships. I have too much fun in my bachelor life. I don’t want to be tied down to one woman when there are still so many out there to explore.
Willow Bennett was just a woman I helped on the side of the road. Nothing more, nothing less, even if her hot little body demanded attention from mine. I did my good deed, kissed those sweet lips, ground my jean-covered length against her softness, and left, expecting to never see her again.
But then, there she was, in her short skirt, tank top, and flip-flops, looking sexy as hell. She didn’t know it yet, but she was my next plaything. I was going to expose her along with me. I was going to show her just how good it could be if she lost her inhibitions and let me put her on display.
I don’t do relationships, but with this girl, I just might… expose my heart to her.
About Watching Mine
My name is Nathan Reines… and I’m a voyeur. Yes, I like to watch people have sex. Witnessing the desire on their faces as they writhe in pleasure makes my blood hotter than the hottest flame. There’s nothing more erotic than seeing their bodies tighten and tremble as they balance on the edge of ecstasy. It makes my dick as hard as fucking steel.
I’ve never been tempted to have a lasting relationship with a woman—why get involved when watching from the sidelines is so fucking hot? But from the first time I watched the woman in the apartment across from mine, I knew she was different. She teases me with her soft touches and gentle caresses. She tempts me with her silent moans and sexy whimpers. She excites me, and makes me want more than I ever have before.
For two years, I refused to give in to my curiosity. That is, until fate took things in her own twisted hands. Now that I know what it’s like to experience Emberleigh in the flesh, there’s no damn way I could ever go back to simply watching.
Wow! I really enjoyed this story💓 This is the third book in this series but in no way do you feel like you are missing anything. Although it is always nice to have back stories, you do get what you need to keep this story going.
Nathan loves to watch people. Mostly people having sex. So when he sees the girl across the way doing just that and he can’t get her out of his mind, he knows he is in trouble.
Emberleigh is a student, med-worker, daughter and a girl who has some dirtiness and secrets inside her. So when she meets Nathan things start getting steamy and dirty fast.
This book took me to a couple places I didn’t expect. The sex in this book is beyond most things but written very well. I loved the characters and their personalities. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review💞
About this Book:
I’m going to destroy these cocky doctors.
In the town of Goat, Oregon, the two gorgeous doctors who run the Clinic of Love don’t just provide medical care.
Nope. These doctors are notorious for their bedside manner, if you know what I mean. Women come in desperate for a good time, and leave extra-satisfied.
I’m a reporter. Doctors like Declan Wilde and Blake Thorpe give the entire medical profession a bad name, and I’m determined to expose them.
Even if their washboard abs cause my girl-bits to spontaneously combust.
Even if I really want to make an appointment with them, and I would love a special treatment of my own.
This story is going to get written. I will destroy these cocky doctors.
We’re playing with fire.
Six years ago, I had a smokin’ hot one-night stand with two firefighters. Then I find out they live in Goat, Oregon. My new hometown.
The chemistry between us is just as strong as ever, and I can’t resist feeding the flames.
Falling in love? I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Never again.
There’s only one thing I want from Sean and Nick.
I want to hit their hydrants. Handle their hoses. Slide down their poles.
No promises. No lies. Just raw passion.
But things are about to get complicated. Goat’s in crisis. An election is tearing the town apart. An arsonist is on the loose. And the spark between us is growing to a blazing out-of-control inferno.
We’re about to get burned.
About Filthy Commitments
It was never supposed to be real. Like they say, never say never…
The last thing I wanted was to get serious, hence the need for a sub I could also use as my fake wife.
From the moment I laid eyes on her, the attraction was instantaneous. I should’ve known that could only mean trouble.
Her body succumbed to mine so easily. The rapture of taking her to heights she’d never known, exhilarating.
Could real love come out of a fake relationship?
Lies beget more lies. Guilt, pain, and regrets go hand in hand with lies. They would surely be the death of the love we stumbled upon.
In the end, there were choices. None of them would come without consequences. None of them would be painless.
Okay, so I really enjoyed this book. I have read many of Michelle’s books and this one is up there in how much I liked it. But I will say this, it did get a little old with how often the lies had to come out. We knew from the beginning what had to be done between Jett and Asia with the contract and what commitments where they had to play the happily married couple. But what got me is the constant “guilt” both felt in this book. For how much guilt they felt this book would have been shorter if they had just come clean and told people (family) what is real. So other than that (the constant guilt feeling) I really did enjoy this book.

About Lover Wanted
I’ve touched every inch of his raw masculine body. He makes me reach heights of ecstasy I’ve never known. I can scream his name in pleasure, but I can’t fall in love with him. Why? He’s my boss, and even though my job is unusual, that’s a no-no.
Hi, I’m Kim and I’m about to be homeless, so what’s a girl to do? Browse the Casual Encounters section of Craig’s List, of course. Why not have a night of passion to help me forget my troubles for a little while?
What I didn’t expect to find was a life-changing job opportunity.
Passion beyond any expectation, a ridiculously hot boss, and getting paid to let a different stranger watch us blow each other’s minds. Right, that’s the catch, but what could possibly go wrong? Plenty – my boss doesn’t believe in love, has some deep dark secrets, and… yeah, I think I’ve already fallen for him.
This has all the makings of not ending well… or does it?
Maybe I should just stick with the sweet Adonis of a cop I just met. He seems like the safer option, but I just can’t stop thinking about my boss. The one who piledrives me to spectacular oblivion a couple of times a week. While a stranger watches.
Ah, hell. All bets are off. Especially the safe ones.
I have to say I was a little hesitant with this book. I mean I get needing money, but to go so far as to having sex with a stranger in public kinda put me out, almost like it was real. I know stupid right? But I was really surprised with this book and really enjoyed it. It was so well written and the story was so good between Mike and Kim that I couldn’t put it down. I can’t see what Rylee comes up with next!
