5 stars for HOT PROTECTOR by @LynnRayeHarris 🚨🚨🚨 ON SALE FOR $.99 AT TIME OF POSTING🚨🚨🚨

Sophie is on the run for her life. She got mixed up in a Russian businessman who happens to be a killer and human trafficker. The only person she knows that can help her is Chase. Chase is military and part of the HOT Team, he is on R&R until a knock at his door at three in the morning. At first he doesn’t recognize Sophie until she tells him her name. She’s his stepsister, her mom married his dad. And he has hated her ever since. He thought she was the spoiled princess because his dad adopted her but wouldn’t even give Chase his last name. At first he thinks she’s just being dramatic until his place is set on fire. They go on the run but his guys can’t help him because it’s personal. She had a thumb drive that she mailed to Paris and they have to get to it before the Russians do. She is curvy and has always been told she needs to lose weight but Chase makes her feel sexy. He says to her “You’re gorgeous. The only ugly people are the ones who tell you that you need to change to suit their definition of beauty.” I thought that was the sexiest thing any guy could say.

Sex, fast paced action, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. They have a rough start in the beginning but Chase sees past her insecurities and finds the beauty in her. The sex will set your reader on fire!

4 stars for THE RANCHER’S UNEXPECTED BABY by @LeslieNorth

Lena is a new horse trader and five months pregnant. When she accidentally gives away a hot tip, she gets fired. Maxwell owns Cooper’s Ranch and is wanting to sell to the Arabians. He hires Lena because she’s good at her job and it’s his baby she’s carrying. Maxwell has this notion that the sell must be made by him. When the Arabians don’t want Lena working on the deal, he leaves her out of it. But when a better deal comes through, because of Lena, he turns it down. Will he lose her and the baby to his own stupid actions?

Stubborn cowboy. Sex. And a surprise pregnancy. I know this is part two of this series but there was no mention of the other Cooper brothers. Lena is sweet and Maxwell is just slightly self centered.

5 stars for SEDUCTION IN SESSION by @ShaylaBlack & @LexiBlake

Connor is a CIA agent, one of the Perfect Gentleman, a group of boys given that name in prep school, and one of the President’s best friends. Lara hires Connor thinking he’s an ex vet down on his luck but really he’s there to shut down her blog site and see if she’s a threat to the President. What he doesn’t know is that she could also be a threat to his heart.

I loved Lara, Connor not so much at first. Connor will do anything to get the job done. Even if it hurts the one he comes to love. Excellent story with sex, lies, and suspense.

4.5 stars for WINTER TAKES ALL by @MillyTaiden

Juliet loves cold weather. She works for a firm that measures the snow in Alaska. Trevrick is a wolf shifter and supposed to be the alpha. But an incident years go had him running away and living in a cabin away from everyone. When he is in a cave meditating and an avalanche happens, something falls right into his lap. He takes the bundle backs to his cabin and realizes it’s a woman and his mate. Trev doesn’t believe he deserves a mate and keeps pushing her away. Juliet knows about shifters but Trevrick doesn’t know she does and he’s afraid of scaring her. She gets kidnapped and Trevrick finally goes to his father, the Alpha, and asks for help. Can he forgive himself and build a life with Juliet?

Wolves, humans, hidden treasure, and misunderstandings. Very sexy with a tough female and a wounded soul of a wolf. I just didn’t care for when one thing ended with Juliet and then when it was Trev’s turn he’d go through what happened again. I know it was both their versions but I thought it was needless. The story was still very good.

Such a sweet story about a little boy wanting a wife for his dad. This is another pen name for Janelle Denison aka Erika Wilde. This is a little different than her others. It’s not as explicit but it is still sexy.
