Series: Winston Brothers by J.L Beck & Stacey Lewis Includes: The Baby Arrangement 📖Review📖, The Baby Mistake 📖Review📖, & The Baby Contract (Coming-Soon)
One: I don’t make mistakes
Two: I’m never going to settle down with one woman
I’m the fun brother, the jokester, the one who’s never serious…
At least, not until I lose the biggest influence in my life.
Now I’m spiraling out of control, so much so I spent the night after the funeral drowning my sorrows. First in the bottom of a bottle…then in the body of a blonde bombshell who looked at me like I could make all her carnal dreams come true.
Spoiler alert: I did.
I don’t remember her name or what she looked like, but now she’s consuming my every thought.
It doesn’t help that my brother selected a brand new intern with a banging body and blonde hair that makes me think of her to be my assistant for the next six weeks.
I spend my days trying not to bend her over my desk and make her mine…
And my nights dreaming about the girl who got away.
Everything changes when the secret she’s been hiding comes out……and I realize I made a huge mistake.
**This is book two in The Winston Brothers Series, however, it can be read as a standalone, separate from book one, The Baby Arrangement. Though, we do recommend you read that book first since The Baby Mistake does contain spoilers from The Baby Arrangement. It’s baby making, alpha loving, Kindle fanning romance, so prepare yourself with a towel. HEA included.**
Ryker is the second son of the Winston family and now it is his turn to fall in love. Ryker is having a very hard time with his father passing and not doing a good job of hiding it. So when he meets a sexy and sweet blond at the bar the night they put his father in the ground all bets are off for him and her.
Ava is celebrating her new job and is taken out by her friends to do just that. But when she sees Mr. Serious across the bar the sexual tension is felt by everyone. Ryker and Ava end up at a hotel and have a blast. But when Ryker wakes up Ava is gone and they both have no idea who each other are.
But when Ava finds out who her new boss is two weeks later, and he doesn’t remember her. Ava is heartbroken.
These two have a lot of things to get over and through. I loved this story and the characters. Ava and Ryker are WONDERFUL characters and need to be read. It was nice to see Reed and Fallon also. I can’t wait to see where J.L and Stacy take us next. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
Series: House of Sin by Elisabeth Naughton Includes: Forbidden, Deceived,📖Both Reviewed📖 & Undone (Coming-Soon)
by Elisabeth Naughton
Publication Date: April 24, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin…
He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist.
I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.
I know he is a threat. He’s entwined in a dangerous world I don’t understand. But that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.
Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.
I need to discover what he’s hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin…
This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret. This is a big story that can’t be told in only one book so there is a cliffhanger – but never fear, book two releases three weeks later. The release schedule is as follows:
This is my first Elisabeth Naughton story and I LOVED it. I love darker books with a hint of mystery and this one has it. Luc is an enigma that I can’t figure out yet. He is the soon to be head of his family The Salvatici Family. He doesn’t want to be, he hates his family and wants out. But sees no way to make that happen. His brothers are harder and meaner than him but he is the oldest and so will take on as the head of the family.
When Natalie James walks in for a job he knows there is something off and tells her no. But his brother Gio finds that he wants her. So Natalie finds herself in the middle of the Salvatici family.
The thing I love the most about this book is you have NO IDEA what the hell is going on with this family. I mean you think you do, because the modeling and females coming and going, so you go straight to human trafficking, but once you start reading and get more into it, you find there is so much more into this family. And why Luc is so damn scared of his father.
Natalie is the idea of what Luc wants if his life would have been different. He has done everything he could to keep her away from his life but no matter what he did, she wouldn’t leave. I loved that about her. She is strong, stubborn, sexy, and just what Luc needs in his life.
I am so excited to see what is next in this series. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Some doors were never meant to be opened…
I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world.
But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought I loved. The man I once foolishly trusted. The man who, despite his lies and deception, I continue to crave.
He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me.
Lost forever in his wicked House of Sin…
This is the second book of The House of Sin series. You have to read the first book Forbidden
Deceived is well titled for this book. We kind of start back where we were in the last book. Natalie is waking up from being drugged and is trying to figure out what the heck Luc has done to her. Needless to say, she is not at all happy when she finds out what has happened while she was out.
Luc has done some things he is not happy to have done to keep Natalie alive and hopefully safe from his family. He is doing everything he can to make her submissive to him and the families. But he soon learns that she never will be that way. These two have to come to terms with their new lives and become a team or they will both die.
This book is full of emotions, betrayal, friendship, broken promises, and love. Man, I loved it. This is one of those books where you are so afraid to read it because you have no idea where you will end up. And when you start reading it you can not put it down. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review. I am so excited to read the next book!
About Elisabeth Naughton

4 1/2 Stars!!
It has taken me about a day to come to terms with what I read with this book. Aashna is a new author and I was extremely happy to have read her debut book.
Unravel is a book that you get a little bit of information about, but omg is it so much more. Vienna Roy and Kingston Sharp are complex characters that you don’t get a handle on until the end. But you have to stick with this story and it is oh so worth it.
I would have given it a full 5 stars but the ending kicked my a$$. I didn’t see that one coming. I am so excited to read and see where the next book takes us. If you have time, this is a book to read. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
Aashna K is an up and coming author, who loves writing about love.

I was a good girl.
I loved Zeus in the first book. I mean he had such a wonderful presence, and he took such great steps for King that I mean you had to love him. But who knew that the love affair he would have would be this one. And it starts so far in the past with letters that you get a different part of Zeus.
I love Lou Lou. She kicks a$$ and takes names. Even going through chemo she is so strong. We see Lou Lou grow up from a church-going young woman to a teenage rebel that wants Zeus like nothing else.

This is my first Stasia Black story and from the very first page, I was hooked. I love reverse harem stories but dystopian and apocalypse stories are a hit and miss for me usually. But this story is freaking awesome.We meet Audrey and her brother trying to get to Nomansland where woman are supposed to be safe from men. In this world, there is barely any women around and the men have gone nuts. When Audrey and her brother are attacked by some men she runs and gets caught by Nix and his men.
Nix brings Audrey to the town he lives in. This is where they are keeping to as many traditions as possible. But one of the new ones they have is the lottery, one woman to every five men. They do this every time a woman is introduced into the town. This is so she is protected, and the human population can continue.
We have Nix, Mateo, Danny, Graham, and Clark each have their own past and each has their own problems. But they all want Audrey and all want to make sure she is loved and taken care of. But Audrey does not make it easy on any of them. And when she finds herself in the middle of something dark and scary in the town she is new to, she doesn’t know if she can trust the men she knows little about.

This was violent, bloody, romantic and EXCELLENT!!!!Lorrie, Goodreads Reviewer
I loved seeing such a merciless couple in such a delicious way. I absolutely could not put it down.Renee, Goodreads Review
What a deeply darkly decadent blood thirsty duo!Gaynor Jones, Goodreads Review
I loved Rosalina Maria. She was trained to be the boss when her dad passed away and she does that. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and that is the way she was trained. But when her father and mother are killed in an accident she is brought home to take over. What she doesn’t expect or is trained for is to be told that nobody will work with her because she is a female. So when Anthony shows up to “help” her, she doesn’t take too kindly to it.Anthony is sent to “help” but he never thought he was to work with Rosalina. So when these two meet the chemistry is off the hook. I loved it.
This is a very enjoyable story.
