About Book 1:
Carter

A surreal experience like no other.
Heart pounding, explosive, electrifying role play.
Snatched during an unsuspecting moment and whisked off to an exotic location is what we provide for our exclusive client list at Longshadows. Absolute discretion guaranteed.
The formula is always the same. Give the client exactly what they’re looking for. No more, No less. A pure hedonistic escape from the monotony of everyday life.
I know how to read a woman’s body language, the subtleties to ensure maximum satisfaction.
It all changes when I see her. Something in the way she’s looking up at me, a hunger far beyond the physical.
I’m not even allowed to know her name, but when she stops me at the door before I leave and whispers, “I’m Kat, Kathleen Le Fleur” those words burn hot into my memory.
I don’t do girlfriends, but for the first time in my life, I need to find her…. F*ck the rules!

Kat

An experience.
A mind-blowing, heart-pounding, once-in-a-lifetime experience. And I signed up for it.
Steal me, take me away to a destination of my choice
And I wanted it.
What the hell do I have to lose, other than my inhibitions?
I’ve never come close to experiencing that level of intensity. Raw, masculine power.
I’m hooked. I have to see him again, I’ll do whatever it takes to find him.
He’s more, so much more.
I can’t get enough.
I’m aching, craving one more taste, touch, anything!
But something tells me it’s over.
For one of us.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this latest book by Natalia! Kat just finds out that her boyfriend of 6 months is living a double life, her job is not what fulfilling, and her family wants her to move back to Arizona. So when her friend tells her about this company that “kidnaps” women and makes their fantasies come true. Kat is a little weird-ed out but has nothing to lose so goes ahead with it. Little does she know it might just be the biggest experience she ever has. Kat and Carter do not have a “normal” get to know you relationship in this book, and I think that is what keeps this book so interesting. You really have no idea what is going to happen next. I would highly recommend this book. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Book 2:
Amy

A Bird in a Gilded Cage-
That’s me.
Mansions all over the world.
More money than you could spend in a lifetime.
Yachts, luxury cars… Did I mention my unlimited black card?
To the outside world, I’m living the dream.
But money can’t buy what I desire most- Love.
I’d give up everything, If I could experience the chance to look into a man’s eyes and know.. I’m all he’ll ever need.
Then I met Camden.
Sure, we met under unusual circumstances, but nothing about my life has ever been usual.
I know I signed up for a fantasy, an experience..
but where do I sign up for forever?

Camden
Sexual ecstasy. An experience of a lifetime.
The thrill of being captured. This is what the exclusive clientele at Longshadows are guaranteed.
I aim to please, and I never miss.
But when I meet my next client, I’m shocked.
She could buy the whole damn town if she wanted.
She may have been born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but she’s so much more than that…
Gorgeous. Intelligent. Innocent.
And looking for the one thing money can’t buy.
She needs me… She fell for me hard.
But what she doesn’t know is she’s the only one I’ve ever needed too.
I just hope it’s not too late.

My Review:
Another hit for Natalia. This is the second book out of the Longshadows Company Series. This is an awesome series and I have really enjoyed both stories.

About this Book:
Him:
I saved her from a fate many would believe was worse than death. But, I’m no hero. Far from it.
I’m saving her for myself, which might be an even worse fate.
Her:
He’s dark. He’s dangerous. He’s the most attractive man I have ever laid eyes on. Everything about him says villain but I can’t help but think that maybe there’s a hero deep inside.
He’s kept me apart from the others for a long time. No one is allowed to touch me. Few are allowed to even set eyes on me.
I arrived here just before my sixteenth birthday. But soon, I won’t be a little girl any more.
How much longer will I be safe? And is safety all that matters?
My Review:

Holy Crap! DD does it again. Warning: this is a DARK book with a few triggers so if you don’t like DARK or you have triggers STAY AWAY. Pay attention to authors warning and don’t read the damn book and then give a bad review because it wasn’t to your liking on how dark it is.

Lex is a dark man. He was raised to be that dark man, his father made sure of that. But when he gets his sights set on Holly he knows what he wants and it is her. Holly is an innocent girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. But she sees the best in Lex and wants to bring light to his dark.
There is not a part of this book I would change. You need the madness in this book to get to the light. I spent hours reading this book and did not like to be interrupted while I was. I cried, laughed a little, and just greatly enjoyed this story of two very destroyed people that deserved happiness at all cost.
You don’t have to have read the other books before reading this one. But if you want to know the others stories then I would read them

About this Book:
She’s a marked woman

Penny Waters has a seven million dollar bounty on her head.

VC Solutions, a powerful cooperate conglomerate, knows someone stole their classified documents, they just don’t know who. But it’s only a matter of time. Once they track her down, they’ll unleash the fierce assassin hired to kill her.

Unless Penny gets to him first.

Just one last kill, and he can go on with his life

Zane Celick is convinced that his only worth in life is to kill. Sure, he’s good at it, but every pull of the trigger comes at a high moral cost. When VC Solutions offers him seven million dollars to assassinate a cyber terrorist, Zane sees a way out. With that kind of money, he could retire for good. When he falls hard for a beautiful woman, he’s more eager than ever to take out this last kill, collect his millions, and stride into his bright future.

Two exquisitely damaged people, bound by explosive secrets

From the moment Zane and Penny meet, the sizzling chemistry between them can’t be denied. Penny was only trying to spy on her assassin, only now, she finds herself caught in a romance so forbidden she can’t resist.

But their budding relationship is tainted by the secrets they keep. Secrets, that when revealed, will blow up in both of their faces.

My Review:

A woman (Penny) just trying to get answers about her brother Ben’s death which she thinks is murder. Ben worked for a world known company VC solutions. When she decides to break into VC and steal their information she becomes number 1 on their hit list. Zane is called in by VC to do a hit for 7 million dollars and Penny is whom they want him to kill and get back the information she stole.
When Zane and Penny finally get together the story really gets going. I really enjoyed this book and the concept the author put together. It took a bit for me to get into, but I am so glad I stuck it out. Good book and I would highly recommend it.

Star Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

About this Book:
I’m no princess. He’s the anti-prince-charming. This is our happy ever disaster.

Anastasia

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.

Bastian

She’s my nemesis. My addiction. My weakness.

My obsession.

I used to tell myself I hated Anastasia Bell – for being poor, for not worshiping 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, f**ed-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…

My Review:

OMG, this book BROKE me. So let me start at the beginning. I have been waiting for this one for a while. So when I started reading this book I was wondering what the h*ll was going on. But once you get into it (doesn’t take long) holy crap! Even the back and forth (the past to present) just makes this book better.

Bastian breaks my heart in places, and in others, I just want to smack the crap out of him. But in the whole book, I love him. This man is so torn for every emotion he has that he just doesn’t know how to process them and I love that.
Anastasia thinks her love life is so broken that she has given up on all men. Every one of them has left her someway somehow. Ana is asked to come back to the Castle Estate to help her father out and that means being in Bastian’s cross hairs again.

These two and all other characters make you crazy with all these emotions and you don’t want to put this book down. I am so hoping for more from this story (it does not end in a cliffhanger) but I want to know about the others.

About Book 1:

She agreed to play. She agreed to be mine.
I won’t let her change the rules of the game.
Violence has always been part of my life. I was angry as a child, underchallenged and neglected, with no outlet for my dangerous rage.
Years have passed, and I’m no longer a victim of my own aggression.
I’m in control now.
A control that many seek to surrender.
Just like her.
My Pet.
The beautiful blonde who agreed to submit to my will.
She agreed to be kidnapped and locked away until our contract is over.
She’s here to play a role.
But her defiance seems too real, her terror too honest. Watching her struggle is bone-chilling.
She’s getting to me like no one ever has before, seizing a heart that cannot love.
Or so I thought…

My Review:
I loved this book. It kept me reading from beginning to end and never disappointed.
This is a book of mistaken identity, kidnapping, BDSM, Stockholm Syndrome and eventually some kind of love that works for these two.
This is a gritty and sexy book that could not be put down. I loved the rawness that was in it and the plot twists in it. This book is awesome and needs to be read. Of course, if any of these idea’s bother you DON’T read this book. I personally have read a lot worse, and to me, this one is not that bad. With the chemistry these two have for each other it just works. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review

About Book 2:

I will break every single rule to make her mine.
My life has always been defined by the extreme. I don’t balance – I’m an all or nothing kind of man.
Doesn’t sound healthy? It sure as hell isn’t.
Giving in to my cravings has almost ruined my life before and I’m not going to let it happen again.
That’s why I need rules. A strict regulation to keep my head in place.
Once a year. A different girl each time. No exclusivity – no addiction.
Laura is fueling my hunger like no girl ever has before.
But she’s not on the menu.
Taking her is against the rules.
Keeping her could ruin me.
…Or finally appease the monster within me.

My Review:

Linnea May has become one of my go-to authors! These books are just freaking awesome. WARNING: there are triggers of BDSM and mild kidnapping if you read this book you will understand. Laura is a young/virgin girl that is just trying to make life better (ya we hear that a lot) she is working 3 jobs try to pay off debts from college, her mother’s cancer and just trying to live day to day. When she is waitressing at a gala she is noticed by Ryan a very handsome and noticeable man. Ryan is a self-made billionaire. He doesn’t like to be in the public eye and hates galas. When he comes across Laura, someone so different then he has ever met. He wants her right away, he craves her right away, and he knows this is bad for him. He does not do this. He has a retreat once a year, where he gets a woman from an escort service and does what he needs/wants to her and then goes about his business the rest of the year. Having someone “normal” would mess that all. But he can’t get over her, he has to have her. When Laura is offered a proposition by Ryan she has no idea what she is walking into. She has an idea, of course, it is all there in writing. But when emotions (even after only 24 hrs) come up after so much sexual charge, what do you do with that. Now that is where the story really begins. This book is HOT sexy, dirty, sad, lovely, and just wonderful. I didn’t want to put this book down and thank goodness I didn’t have to!I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Book 3:
Others see the devil in me. All she sees is her perfect match.
They call me a prodigy in the business world. Rich, powerful and cunning. At 29 years old, I’m running an empire, built from scratch.
The political realm is next. I want my voice heard and my name on the ballot.
But my character credentials are lacking.
I need a woman at my side, under contract. Someone with a pretty smile for the public eye, to make me look like a trustworthy, loyal man.
Ann Porter is the woman I want for the job.
Her heart is just as violent as mine, her mind sharp and cunning.
Her body willing and begging to be broken – ready to bend at my will.
She has the potential to get me where I want to be – or to destroy everything I’ve worked for all those years.
She’s the perfect risk.

My Review:

As always Linnea brings her A game with this one. Two totally different people drawn to each other for one thing- submission and domination. Ann is the perfect companion for Jared. I loved these two characters and how they interacted with each other. This story is a must read and a one-clicker. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Book 4
I want real fear. Real submission.
She’s giving me all that –
and taking so much more.
I’m the last son. The one who doesn’t matter. I was never meant to inherit my family’s wealth, but my brother’s gutless betrayal left me as the one holding the bigger fortune.
Now, with money to my name and the looks to match, women see me. They want me.
But they don’t know me.
I savor a very specific kind of leisure pursuit. I buy women to lock them up and make them submit to my will.
But this time, I want the real thing. Real fear, real submission.
Someone special, who doesn’t play a role.
Someone like her.
A luscious lamb, curves all in the right places, and eyes so deep, I’ve lost myself in them before we even exchanged a single word.
She doesn’t know what’s coming. She doesn’t know that she’s going to be mine, my captive, my submissive, my possession.
For as long as I please.
But something is wrong with her. She’s twisted, with a soul just as broken as mine.
She’s not playing by the rules, and that makes me want her that much more

My Review:

I really hated to see this series end! Though I have to say what an ending it is. I was wondering what happened to Ruby from the last book as we met her with the beautiful red jacket. So in this book that is whom we get the story from. I love her thinking and how strong she is. She goes into this “contract” with full thinking and knowledge of what might happen of course she NEVER thought she might actually get kidnapped for real. Loran has wanted the real thing for a long time. A submissive that gives everything to him, the fear, the fight, everything. But he doesn’t bargain for Ruby. These two characters bring out the worst and best of each other. Such a great book! I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About this Book:
I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.

I was only a small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected me and kept me safe as best he could.

Until I left him.

I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him again. I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.

My Review:

This story is a love story unlike any you will read. It starts with two young children and brings you to them when they are adults. I don’t think there was an emotion I didn’t feel while reading this story between Jay, Robin, and John. This is a beautifully written tragic love story that I am so happy was written. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review. And my honest opinion is to go buy/borrow/steal this book and read it is as soon as possible. Willow did an amazing job with their love story.

On a side note. I have this beautiful sign on my wall and it reminded me of this story. “Every love story is beautiful but ours is my favorite”

About this Book:
Cross

I’m the guy whose name brings fear into the hearts of even the hardest men. They call me Cross, because I’ve killed enough men to fill a cemetery, and I never saw any problem with that. Until a woman I hardly remember brought my eleven-year-old daughter that I didn’t know existed, to my doorstep and left her for me to take care of.

At first my daughter was a complication I didn’t need, but now I’ll do everything I can to raise her right. I’ll even stay away from her hot-as-sin guidance counselor Roxanne, who makes me feel like I’m twenty again, and not pushing forty. Which isn’t to say I wouldn’t show her what a real man can do with a woman like her.

Roxie

My father was the president of an outlaw MC, and until I turned twenty-one a world of bikers, mayhem and crime was all I knew. Then a rival gang destroyed it all, killed my family and everyone I held dear, and made me the property of a brutal, ruthless man. I ran away, got an education, and haven’t looked back.

Now I’m the guidance counselor at a small town junior high school, my old life so far behind me it might as well be someone else’s past, and I was happy to leave it there. But then I met Cross, the bad boy biker father of one of my wayward students. He makes me yearn for the life I lost, crave all the excitement that used to be my everyday. Makes me want to be a bad girl again, if only for one night.

But I won’t go down that road again. It doesn’t lead anywhere good

My Review:

I read the other MC books by Lena and I have to say, I LOVED this book and can not wait to see where this group goes. Yes, I did have to go back and make sure I was reading the first book since Cross does take you “back” in time to when things happen with his daughter. But that is due to the last set of books with the Viper’s guys. But you DO NOT have to read those books to highly enjoy this book.
Cross is a wonderful father for as much as he wants to get involved. Lily understands what is going on and just wants her father to be safe and live a “normal” life. So when she starts acting out at school and is sent to the new guidance counselor who happens to be Roxanne. Cross has no problem becoming a hands on father.
This is an emotional story from the very first page to the last page. I loved it and was so intrigued with the characters I really could not put the book down. Great book and diffidently one to read!

About this Book:
When two broken souls come together, it’s an exploding volcano of passion. Can they survive the intensity?

When I’m assigned to write about the football team’s winning streak for our college’s paper, I can’t believe it. I want to write about hard hitting, thought provoking topics, not interview the biggest manwhore on campus.

And Cole James truly is an asshole, but he’s also so damn sexy that it curls my toes. And there’s more, something beneath the arrogant facade he presents to the world, something that calls to me, makes me ache. Makes me want to soothe his pain, kiss it all away.

Yes, he’s an asshole but I have issues too. We might be each other’s saviors… if we don’t break each other first.

My Review:

This book is just freaking awesome. These two characters are so wonderful and have such chemistry I couldn’t put this book down.

About this Book:
I need a wife. She needs money. It’s a gamble, but one month will solve both our problems.

Unimpressed with my billionaire playboy ways, my father has given me an ultimatum — settle down and get married before the investors’ meeting of Gaston Pharmaceuticals, or I’m out the door. Yeah… he’s a dick but he holds my future in his hands, so I need to play nice, for a while.

One problem is that the meeting is only a month from now. The second problem is that I’ve never dated a girl I liked well enough to spend an entire night with, let alone a month. So my best friend and I process my dilemma the best way we know how — by getting mind-blowingly drunk.

And just like that, I wake up in Vegas with an epic hangover… and a wife.

A beautiful wife. A fun wife. A caring and creative wife.

Now, all I have to do is convince her to stay married to me. I make her a promise. In four short weeks, we’ll quietly annul this farce and go our separate ways. I’ll get my life back. She’ll get hers plus some cash.

There’s just one little complication. I think I’m falling for her. As luck would have it, she hates my guts.

My Review:

I know it has probably been said in other reviews, but here goes. What happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas (haha). In Alice Ward’s new book that is somewhat true. Talen and Dani do get married in Vegas but they also live in the outskirts. If you have lived in the Vegas area you know that once you leave the strip it is a whole nother area, so once they left that casino and wedding they could have left that all behind. But Talen needed that marriage and in her own way so did Dani.
This is a great book and I really enjoyed it. I was happy to have read it and am happy to give my honest review. Read this book! And if you can one click it. It is diffidently worth it!

About Book 1:
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.
He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.
The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.

My Review:

Wow. This is my first Mary Catherine Gebhard book and all I can say is WOW! This book is so much more than just a romance novel.This book is about two people fighting their way to each other (maybe) with so many people against them. Beast is a very complicated man that has fought his way to the top and wants to keep it that way. But now that he has Frankie he doesn’t know where to go now. Frankie has no idea what she has gotten into when she takes her fathers place for his debt. But she finds it is not what she thought. I loved this book and could not put it down!

About Book 2:
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind.
Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be—but it was perfect.
The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.
Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.
Now I know better.

My Review:

I will say there was a lot of this part of the book I did not see coming. Of course, I won’t tell you what those parts are but man there was some OMG moments. Those are parts of the book that I love. Keep me surprised! I really am happy I waited to read the first book till this one was out, man I would have been on pins and needles to read this one. This book answered a lot of questions from the first book and took the story to a whole nother level. Loved Beast and Frankie’s love story. It is diffidently their own. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my own review.

About this Book:
From Wall Street Journal and USA Today Best Selling Author Vivian Wood

It started innocently enough. Beautiful Harper gave Sean those eyes… those eyes that meant, yes, take me. But Harper didn’t know Sean’s secrets… She didn’t know that he liked it rough.

More than rough. He liked to dominate. To punish. To degrade. It was the only way that the black hole in his soul wouldn’t swallow him up.

He would push her a little too far, and she would run. They all ran, eventually.

But that’s not what happened… when he put his hands around her throat and squeezed, Harper moaned. When he told her to stay away, she didn’t listen, misbehaving until she got spanked. When he took out the handcuffs, there was excitement in her eyes, mixed with a little fear.

The doe-eyed redhead liked it. More than that, she wanted it. She said so, time and again.

That’s the thing about sexy strangers, though… you never know what they’re hiding. And Harper is carrying a burden so heavy that even Sean’s secrets pale in comparison.

My Review:

Holy sh$t! What a book. Addiction is so much more than just about two people and sex. This story is about two people with major problems but find themselves together and are able to forget those troubles even for a night. But as we all know we can never forget or runaway from our issues.
This story is freaking wonderful and I could not put it down. I can’t wait for the next one!

I won’t let her stay a virgin for long.
We may not be able to put a stop to their feud.
But we can become each other’s dirty little secret.

What happens when the secret grows too big?
When the secret is not one, but two babies in her belly?

My Review:

Yea I wasn’t too thrilled with this book at the beginning. But once I got into it, I started liking it more and more. I will say that it isn’t the best work of Jess. I liked her others more. And I think it was because the characters seem to force the chemistry issue for a bit. And I didn’t like that. But after a bit, they seem to find their steam. And Bae was kind of a bitch sometimes.

About this Book:
I never expected to fall for a younger woman, but she’s all I think about.

She knows how much I want her, too. That’s why the beautiful tease is trying her best to break me.

Like being caught in the riptide, she’s impossible to resist.

And no matter how hard I try, I can’t stay away.

She’s completely wrecked me.

My Review:

Pretty damn good book. The beginning makes you take a step back, just due to the pettiness of the girls. But that quickly gets put aside when Riley and Brody finally make a go at it. This is a must read! I voluntary read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
