 Book three in The Donovan Dynasty trilogy.

His erotic demands test everything she believes…

When the fearless, larger-than-life Nathan Donovan becomes her boss, Kelsey Lane’s life is turned upside down. The multimillionaire wants her by his side, but his demands don’t end there.

Kelsey avoids romantic entanglements, especially with overwhelmingly dynamic men like Nathan. But she quickly discovers his attention and sensual desires ignite something deep inside her, leading her on a journey that tests everything she believes.

The youngest, boldest of the dynamic Donovan brothers, Nathan is accustomed to getting what he wants. And he focuses his attention on the smart, sexy Kelsey Lane. He quickly discovers she’s unlike any woman he’s ever known.

She meets him, desire for desire, getting deep inside him, destroying the barriers he keeps around his heart. He wonders, though, if she’s willing to give him the one thing he demands…

This book had it all. Hostile takeover, Dom, and Subs. If you liked Fifty Shades or even if you didn’t you just might want to give Boss written by Sierra Cartwright a try. Boss is the 3rd book in the Donovan Dynasty. It would also be my first title and book that Sierra Cartwright has written that I have read. But that didn’t stop me from reading and enjoying Boss.
Nathan Donovan was a workaholic and the others in his family are trying to show him that there is life outside of work. Until he meets Kelsey and he found that she is one woman that could handle him in the boardroom and most certainly in the bedroom.
The Boss is steamy and the chemistry between Nathan and Kelsey smokes up the kindle. I will recommend this book to any reader whose likes to read about Dominates & Submissive.

My rating: Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden star

Publisher: Carina Press

Publication Date: April 24, 2017

Print Length: 120 pages


A Cascadia Wolves novella

Megan Warden, Seattle’s devoted Enforcer of the Cascadia pack, knows that she has a mate. Somewhere. She’s just never found him. Then there he is at her cousin’s wedding. Megan isn’t just drawn to the werewolf’s masculine, head-spinning scent – she’s consumed by it. He seems so perfect, there has to be a catch…

With a successful practice in Las Vegas, Dr. Shane Rosario has lived outside the pack since he was born. Raised to hide his wolf in shame, he always assumed he’d marry a human.

Until Megan. Shane thrills to the ease with which she wears her wolf, and he craves ever inch of her. But the idea of forever could be impossible. He’s not willing to abandon his human life – even for a mate.

Something’s got to give. Because this time, even destiny may not be enough to bind them.

Lauren Dane didn’t waste any time in getting directly into the action. In Bonded Pair, Megan had to put up with a lot, traveling with her family to a wedding, to meeting her mate who had serious issues.
Shane was a successful doctor, who by right was a werewolf. Growing up he had to hide what he was to appease his mother. Not knowing what he was missing until he met his mate. But even meeting his mate didn’t solve years of abuse by his mother. Yes, Shane had mommy issues. If he can’t stop deny who and what he is, he will lose the best thing that ever happened to him.
Bonded Pair was fast passed and didn’t skimp on the romance. It had a strong character development to the point that you could relate to the struggle these two had to go through to be together.

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers Book 2)

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers, #2)Blood Freed by Traci Douglass

My rating: Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden star

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Series: Blood Ravagers #2

Publication Date: January 19, 2017

Characters: Dex, Elizabeth “Liz”


Elizabeth “Liz” Frost has always been the wild one. But now, with a niece or nephew on the way and her promise to become half of the new psychic Oracle team for the Blood Ravagers Biker Gang, she’s ready to turn over a new leaf. And what better way to start than by answering the call when gang leader Dante needs help? Her mission: to travel cross-country to get the information the gang needs to complete the Oracle Binding Ceremony. Should be easy, right? Except for the incredibly tempting lone-wolf shifter named Dex who’ll be her riding partner and protector on the journey.

Dexter “Dex” MacCallahan is tasked with guarding Liz Frost, one of the gang’s beautiful and bewildering new psychics. Dex can’t refuse the mission, but there’s one small problem. The time of his Rut is approaching, a rare occurrence where male wolf-shifters must physically bond with their chosen mate or face certain insanity and death. It could cost him not only the new life he’s built, but also his battered, scarred heart.

Together, Dex and Liz must search for the information they need before his old nemesis and a rival gang annihilates all they hold dear. But when the simmering chemistry between them boils over into searing hot passion, will they risk losing their hearts to save the ones they love?

If you haven’t read the first book in the Blood Bound series I advise you stop right here and read Blood Bound first. Blood Freed continues the saga. But in this story, we have Elizabeth who is the other half of Anna. But whereas Anna was the more reliable twin, Liz was the flighty one.

But where is the fun if you can’t be different. Whereas the first title of this series had more drama. Blood Freed is more action packed and full of sexual tension as the two main characters of Dex and Liz story unfolds. This story had a hidden meaning a moral if you must call it. That you can accomplish just about anything if you just believe in yourself.
I will recommend this story to all paranormal enthusiast.

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


From the moment American Sabrina Sullivan sets foot on the new dig site with her Irish archaeologist husband, a destructive brew of natural and supernatural forces conspires to break their bond. The most destructive force of all is the inexplicable sexual energy relentlessly pulsing between her and her new boss—her husband’s best friend—making her want things she shouldn’t. When her marriage begins to crack, Sabrina is faced with the most difficult choice of her life—reach across the chasm of mistakes to hold on to the man she loved enough to marry or forge a new life with the man who has been hers forever.

This was my first time every reading a Sophia Ryan novel. So, I went into reading Only Forever only knowing that the description sounded interesting. I got past the first chapter everything was going fine. Then I got past the second chapter with me all on board. Only Forever was a hot journey from discovering that no matter if an ocean separates you from the one person you were mint for, that fate or destiny will always find some way to bring you together. But, not before they have a little fun with you first.

As young children, they both were told that their soulmate was out there. One was told that a blue light was their destiny and the other was told they future lies in Ireland. So, the story opens with American Sabrina Sullivan blissfully married to her Irish archaeologist husband. Now, nothing could split them apart because but what the oracle told her has finally come true. Or did it. It only took one millisecond, just a touch really to figure out that yes, the Oracle was correct that she would find her soulmate. However, the man that she married wasn’t he.

Only Forever, was a hot read from beginning to end. The plotline captures you with the tale of two lost souls destined for each other, but where reasonability and metaphoric ideas collide.

I like that Only Forever, presenting me with the chance to immerse myself in my not so realistic beliefs for the few hours it took me to complete. After reading, I don’t know who I was sorrier for; the husband, Sabrina or both. It’s a hard choice to make, deciding for the known or take a leap of faith and go with the unknown. I can tell you though it was a pleasure to see how the story unfolded.

Book one in the Were Chronicles series.

Marissa Boyd finds herself drawn into a world she can never be a part of, complete with an Alpha wolf who takes whatever he wants. And he wants her.

Marissa Boyd knows, as a non-shifter, she doesn’t belong in Pack territory. She braves a visit to attend her sister’s mating ceremony and meets the shifter who will change her entire life and beliefs.

His desire to claim her is strong and his wolf won’t be denied. He’ll have her as his mate even if he has to fight to teach her the meaning of belonging to an Alpha. Even if it is Marissa’s feelings of not being good enough for him that he must battle.

This book was first published on April 20th, 2009. But when it comes to reading a paranormal romance about were-shifters and strong Alpha men, I am all in. And with a doubt Pack Alpha the first book in a 15-part series, written by Crissy Smith didn’t disappoint this reader.

Marissa wasn’t thrown out of her pack more so that she was driven to leave. See, Marissa was a non-shifter and to her old pack that wasn’t heard of. Driven out of her pack, to allow her sister to thrive, Marissa didn’t know any other life except the one she was shown. So, what a surprise, while attending her sister’s mating ceremony and meets the shifter who will change her outlook on life.

Gage Wolf is used to defending his pack. And when his wolf sets his eyes on Marissa, his wolf won’t be denied even if it’s because of Marissa thinking that she’s protecting him.

There new attraction for each other would be put to the test when a visit from Marissa old pack members attends the mating ceremony.

Pack Alpha was a short read but packed a lot in that short time frame. A great book and an excellent start to a series.

Sinful pleasure and forbidden desire rule in the first part of #1 bestselling author Lora Leigh’s novel Only Pleasure, previously published in trade paperback and now exclusively in ebook format.
.
Since Chase Falladay came to her rescue two years ago, Kia Stanton has never been able to forget the powerful man or the kind of life he leads. So two years later when she runs into Chase and his friend, Khalid, and leaves with them that night, she knows exactly where it is all heading. However, little prepares her for the smoldering pleasure she feels in the arms of two men. After years of holding back, Kia is finally able to find freedom…as Chase and Khalid possess her body with forbidden sensations…

When it comes to doing anything, there is always a first. With Lora Leigh latest title Pleasure, which comes in three parts, but still give you the inflammable romance that you come to know from Lora Leigh. In Pleasure Part #1 it just the introduction to the main couple, the trouble of turmoil of Kia Stanton.  when she made, it known that her husband was a member of the BDSM club and that he and another member almost force themselves on her. It was up to Chase Falladay to get the club out of the public eye.

Now two years later after a nasty divorce and her reputation in ruins. Now, after years of denying herself, Kia is finally able to find freedom.

The 1st segment of Only Pleasure was a great introduction to the main characters. You didn’t have to wait long before Chase and Kia acted on their feelings.

This book has it pros and con. The pro was it ended just like a cliffhanger, it gave you time to digest what you read, also since I was reading this close to bed time anyway, I felt it ended perfectly. The con is I don’t like cliffhangers. That is the only trouble I had with this book. But then again maybe it wasn’t a problem with the book and just a problem with me having time management issues.

The Pleasure Dome – where the sex is out of this world…

Forced into retirement, Captain Soledad Scott, a former warship captain, has decided on a new career as a mother. She’s come to the Pleasure Dome where a computer-matched male will donate his sperm the old-fashioned way and make her dream of motherhood come true. But Sol’s worm-hole dyslexia sends her to Room 990 instead of Room 660.

Commander Gabriel Merriweather, half-breed Chakkra and master empath with the Diplomatic Corps, awaits his sterile playmate of the evening. When she arrives and orders him to pleasure her as if he were the paid sex toy, Gabe willingly complies. But the next day he learns that the woman isn’t a Dome employee, but a maternity client who has stolen his sperm and disappeared.

Sol can’t believe that the man she just spent the night with is the very man who destroyed her warship career. What will he do if he discovers that she’s carrying his child? Unwilling to find out, Sol decides to disappear.

But is the universe big enough to hide her from him?

Did you read the synopsis? The synopsis made the book worth reading. Right? Not! That was all to the book. They met, they had hot sex, and that was the end of the book. But really, Captain Soledad Scott was forced into retirement and doesn’t know what else to do. Until her sister came up with the bright idea that now that Sol is retired she have a baby. So off she goes to the: Pleasure Dome.

What I didn’t find believe is that Sol knowing that every time she goes off planet she suffers from worm-hole dyslexia didn’t accept the assistance from the Pleasure Dome droid too make sure she arrives at the right room. So she ends up…. you guess it the wrong room.

 Commander Gabriel Merriweather went to the Pleasure Dome to unwind from an unsuccessful mission. He went to the Pleasure Dome to seek pleasure from a sterile playmate. But when Sol arrives barking orders, he played along.

That’s when the cat and mouse games began. The morning after Gabriel learns that Sol wasn’t the person he hired but actually a fertile client. So, now Gabriel must find Sol to retrieve what belong to him.

Don’t get me wrong, I did get some enjoyment out of the book. But to be honest that enjoyment was over shadowed by how unrealistic the characters were behaving.  But even though I didn’t find Gab and Sol story that pleasurable. There was some character that I wouldn’t mind reading about for instance Sol’s sister, now there is a book that is wanting to be told.
