She loves romance that isn’t afraid to be awkward and uncouth, and thrives on flawed characters with big hearts.

I have read all of Ashley’s books. I really didn’t think she could surprise me after reading the [book:Blame It on the Shame: Complete Series|34626730]. That was a dark series and brought a lot of emotions forward good and bad.
Then you have the Duet [book:Complicated Hearts|33235918], [book:Complicated Hearts|34670193], which you should probably read before you read this story since you will get the beginning of Preston and Kit. But like Ashley does say you don’t HAVE to read them.
So on to this book, again holy shit. Preston is an asshole in the finest ways. He is a gambler a compulsive one at that. But he is a broken man and when a man is broken they do stupid shit.
Kit is beautiful in everything she does. But she has had a crappy life. But she wears her heart on her sleeves and will love with all her heart.
These two people have no reason to be in a relationship BUT they are and you have to read this book to find out why. I will not give anything away. But I will say that if there is one book you read this year it HAS TO BE THIS ONE!

Begin as you intend to end. That was my motto.
It was how I had always lived my life.
From the moment my roommate, Mitch, and I arrived back at his childhood home on the Second Chance Ranch, things became clear.
He wanted April. I wanted them both, and I always get what I want.
But something is different now. It feels like everything is on the line, and I’m terrified to crash and burn.
Getting what I want isn’t going to be so easy this time around. Mitch has to finally come to terms with the fact that he’s in love with me, and while he’s doing that, we have to convince April to fall in love with both of us. We have to step up and prove that despite all our faults and problems, we are worthy of that love.
It’s a lot, but I begin how I intend to end. With Mitch beside me, April between us, and both of us as her Daddies.
There are a lot of roadblocks along the way, but I’m determined to get my happy ending. And I always get what I want.

This is my first Rayanna Jamison story and I loved it. This is the second book in the Second Chance Ranch Series but I did not know that. And I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. This story is strictly about Brody, April, and Mitch. Although you do get the last three characters from the last book in this one, but nothing that you have to worry about knowing.
Brody and Mitch have been friends and sometimes lovers for the past twenty years. Brody and Mitch are both Doms when separate in their love lives but together Brody is top dog and Mitch switches. When Mitch and Brody go to Second Chance to help out they show up at the same time as April. These three have instant chemistry and connection.
April can tell that Brody and Mitch have a deep connection and doesn’t want to intrude on that. But the boys show that she will not be in the way. Brody becomes an instant Dom for April and Mitch. But Mitch is struggling with his sexuality. He isn’t gay, but he knows he loves Brody more than just a friend. And now adding April into the mix he knows he has to come to terms with what he wants.
This book is wonderfully written. You have three people that want a relationship but have never tried this type before. You have someone struggling with his sexuality and his friends/lovers wanting to help but knowing that he has to come to terms on his own. You have April wanting something like a Dom and a Daddy but having insecurities with herself on doing just that.
This is just what I needed to read right now. It isn’t a fake romance, it is a “real life” like book. With lots of problems, but with characters working it out. LOVED IT!! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
“Have you ever had a Daddy before?”
The question confused me, and for a moment I thought of my own Dad, before understanding that That wasn’t what he meant. “Not..not like that,” I stammered, blushing profusely. I had never even considered a Daddy figure, but at this moment, God, I wanted one.
“Not like that, huh? You’ve never had a Daddy to snuggle and spoil you , and spank you soundly before tucking you into bed?”
I shook my head, finding myself wishing it was time for dinner instead of time for breakfast. Wanting everything Mitch was offering.
Except that he wasn’t offering. Or, was he?
Even when his giant hand cupped my ass, I wasn’t sure I hadn’t imagined the whole exchange.
My panties were drenched. My chest was heavy, and my breathing was soft but labored.
If it wasn’t real, it was some fantasy.
“I can be your Daddy.” He whispered the words I didn’t even realize I longed to hear.
“I can as well.” The booming voice with its Yankee twang, surprised me and I turned to see Brody filling the doorway. His wide stance filled the French doors, and his arms folded over his chest. The look on his face that lacked tenderness and bode no argument.
I felt the change in Mitch without looking at him.Brody snapped his fingers. “Two daddies are better than one , little girl. Come upstairs with us, and we’ll show you.”

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)

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!
