4.5 stars for THE RELENTLESS HERO by @AngelVane

Julian is an ex SEAL and has followed Mena to Kenya. She has a fellowship at a Tribunal Museum. Julian is getting restless and starts working for TIREDS, a agency that’s helps the government. They are starting their lives when Mena is kidnapped by one of the most wanted criminals in Africa. Julian goes through hell to find her but every time he gets close, something happens and she’s taken again. Can Julian save her before she disappears for good?

Good story with lots of action and suspense. The past comes back just as they are finally happy. This is the second book in the series and I didn’t read the first but still knew what was going on. There is a little cliffhanger, that may tie everything up in the next one.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti comes a new story in her Dark Protectors/Rebels series…

Tabi Rusko has a simple to-do list: Rob a bank, steal a recording, set up a lucrative factory, and survive the assassins on her tail. Sure, she’s a demoness with the cunning and instincts that come with her species, but she’s always spent more time exploring than training, and her fighting skills are okay at best. One sexy man, a human cop no less, is responsible for her being stuck in a small hick town and forced into a human anger-management group that’s crazier than her. To make matters worse, his dangerous blue eyes and hard body leave her breathless and ready to rumble, and his overbearing attitude is a challenge a demoness can’t refuse.

Evan O’Connell just wants to enjoy his time out of the military by policing a small town and hopefully pulling cats from trees and helping old ladies cross the street before he succumbs to the disease plaguing him. The last thing he needs is a stunning, too sexy, pain in the butt blonde casing his bank and causing a ruckus everywhere she goes. There’s something different about her that he can’t figure out, and when she offers him immortality in exchange for her freedom, he discovers that isn’t enough. One touch of her, a whirlwind beyond his imagination, and he wants the Vixen to be his forever, as soon as he takes care of the centuries old killers on her tail.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

4 stars LURE OF OBSESSION by @LisaKessler

Melanie is one of the nine Greek muses who have been reborn in mortal women. Mel is the muse of Tragic Poetry and an English teacher at the high school. When Mel comes home to find her roommate/sister ( one of the muses ) dead at the bottom of the stairs, she calls the police. Nate is a detective and when he meets Mel, strange things start happening to him. After a tragic accident, Nate wants nothing to do with relationships but something draws Mel to him. When it becomes obvious that someone is after Mel, Nate takes her security very seriously and moves her in with him. Will Nate let Mel into his heart or will he always stay alone?

Good story but some of the dialogue seemed wrong to me. Tragedy, sizzling sex, and not really a cliffhanger but sort of continues to the next one. Not for sure if that makes sense.

Getting served divorce papers was not how I planned spending New Years Day.

I probably shouldn’t have gone to my favorite bar and gotten wasted trying to drown my sorrows.
I definitely shouldn’t have spent the night passed out in the bed of the bartender’s daughter, Gigi.

And the absolute last thing I should have done was let my guard down and start having fun. Now I’m thinking of her all the time… fantasizing about the things I want to do to Gigi.

I’m in the middle of the best hockey season of my life. I need my head in the game and my focus on the playoffs – not playing house with the gorgeous bartender who makes me feel more alive than I have in years.

Finding someone new so soon after a failed marriage isn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever done.

But it just might be too late. I’ve been checked hard into the boards, right off my skates, and I’m not only spinning out of control…

I might just be falling in love all over again.

Mac is a billionaire and just bought the Players Club, an exclusive BDSM club. He wants his friends wife to remodel six rooms because she works for Stephanie and he can’t get involved with her. Stephanie shows up for the meeting instead and has some great ideals for the rooms. Stephanie has wanted Mac since she met him over a year ago. Mac only does one night stands with subs from the club. He had a marriage that ended badly and he has sworn off relationships. There is a masquerade party at the club and Stephanie wrangles an invite out of Mac. This is where Stephanie gets her first taste of a dominant man.

They decide to have an affair until the rooms are done in two weeks, then they walk away. Stephanie has fallen for Mac and Mac has too but he’s afraid she’ll want babies down the road and he can’t have them, so he breaks it off. But quickly realizes he can’t live without her but will he be able to win her back?

So good. BDSM. Some smoking hot sex scenes. Two very strong willed people who only let their walls down for each other. I love Erika Wilde’s books and always look forward to reading them.

5 stars for DARE TO TEMPT by @CarlyPhillips

Damon is the star quarterback and when drug tested, he tests positive for PED, performance enhancing drugs. He’s suspended and plans to fight it because he would never take anything that would hurt his career. He hires Evie, a private investigator. Evie will not fall for the playboys lines and concentrate on working his case. When Evie’s ex shows back up, Damon convinces her to move in with him, for her protection. Seeing as they are very attracted to each other, they decide to have a fling. While trying to figure out who framed him, Damon will do whatever it takes to keep Evie in his life.

Excellent romantic, sexy story. You’ll see some familiar faces and need a cold shower after this book. I love this series and can’t wait to see what happens next. A playboy who never plans to settle down and a woman who has been burned by men and decides to take a break from them.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble

She’s the solution to his problems.

Love is the last thing they expected to find.

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard – and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

3 stars for VIOLCA’S DRAGON by Leilani Love

Violca is raising her four younger sister after the sudden death of their parents. Chase is a dragon shifter and is sent to see if the sisters are the witches prophesied to save their kind. From the first time he saw her picture, he knew she was special. Violca is trying to raise the sisters as normal as possible until someone tries to take them. Chase and Violca will protect the girls no matter what.

At first this story was really good and then it was like whoever edited it just quit. All the characters dialogue ran together. The part with Scott, Chase’s friend, and Kati, Violca’s little sister, was not something I even wanted to contemplate. Secrets, dragons, and panther shifters.
