 antagonize me cover

I wanted what she had, she had what I wanted. With her long blonde hair and her legs that never ended, she had him, but I wanted him.
We can’t always have what we want, and sometimes that’s the way life is meant to be. Sometimes destiny places other people in our path, a path that should not be mixed. But also sometimes, just sometimes, the paths cross, causing an explosive reaction.
Tanner was my crush. A crush that I’ve had since I first laid eyes on him. But now he’s dating my friend… my beautiful, flawless and perfect friend.
Then out of nowhere Kyrone bursts into my life, taking me over bit by bit. I don’t know how to feel about that. I don’t know what to do. He frustrates me. He annoys me. But most of all, he makes me smile.

Meet TL

T.L. lives in Brisbane, Australia with her 2 children. She started writing because of her love of reading. She used to doodle with ideas when she was younger, but never wrote too much. Her life dream is to be a full time author. If you ask her if she is like her characters, she says, “I am like both of the characters from my two book series. I think I have put a bit of myself in both….Krinos tends to say things without thinking, I do the same. She also rules the roost, and I do the same in my household.” Her celebrity crush is Chris Hemsworth, she loves chocolate ice cream, her biggest pet peeve is nails on a chalkboard., and she is not a fan of having her photo taken. She loves being part of the Indie Book world, and has made some amazing friends along the way. But, she acknowledges she could never do what she does if it wasn’t for the bloggers that pimp her and the fans that support her and read her books.

You and I Together by Melissa Toppen

You and I, TogetherYou and I, Together by Melissa Toppen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story of Anna and Bentley continues in Book Two of Melissa Toppen's trilogy.

One night wasn't enough and as Bentley's club expansion in Seattle gets underway, Bentley finds every opportunity to return to Chicago to be with Anna. She is his addiction, he can't get enough. As he expresses his feelings for her, and she must come to grips with her own heart, Anna's past creeps up on her. Past hurts and relationships surface and create a lot of drama. While she deals with her own issues, she is faced with Bentley's past as well. Can this man who has been with countless women, has money, wealth and power possibly, truly love her? Her insecurity grips her and things come to a head explosively in Book Two.

These two characters are so strong yet stubborn you just wanna bop their heads together. It's almost comical how the secondary characters are so flaky or flighty against the two strong leads. I love Shira, she definitely plays a huge role in this book. I was left wanting to hear more of her and Ethan's story I hope I get to in Book Three. (hint hint lol)

REVIEW of Fueled Desire by Julie Morgan

Fueled Desire (Southern Roots #3)Fueled Desire by Julie Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought Fallen was good but I love Southern Roots series!! Each book keeps getting better. So after Book One, I HATED Abby Masters. Seriously, she was that girl you wanted to slap Hard, in the face, with a brick....for all the shady stuff she pulled. So at the beginning of Fueled Desire, I was happy she was leaving town. Then Clive walked on that plane and I forgot my anger for Abby and my attention was drawn to this hilarious, bold, sexy man in a kilt. I tried really hard to stay pissed at Abby (especially for scoring Clive) and I was happy he busted her chops and gave her a hard time. As Clive was making me laugh (and other stirrings), I softened for Abby as her own history unfolded. I felt like I really got to know these characters. Julie Morgan is fabulous at drawing you in and making you feel. If you were like me and hated Abby, you just might change your mind by the end of this book. One thing is for sure, I wanna go to Scotland!!! I will be on the lookout for men in kilts and not ignore anyone on the plane. Never know, I just might get lucky! Can't wait for the next book!!!

BOSS by Tara Oakes

BOSS (Chianti Kisses #2)BOSS by Tara Oakes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

At the end of Book one, you get a sense that there is more to Dom's business than meets the eye and definitely doesn't want to tell V. Dom is the epitome of macho and if he would just trust that V is not Baby V anymore and quite grown up, a lot of problems could be avoided, but then we wouldn't have such a great story! I loved the twists and turn this book took as we learn more about the history of both families and how it relates to present day. Old grudges die hard, or not at all in simmer in the background. I can definitely see more storylines and spinoffs in this series and I can't wait to read them all!

Embracing My Submission by Jenna Jacob

Embracing My Submission (The Doms of Genesis, #1)Embracing My Submission by Jenna Jacob
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

read collaboration books featuring Jenna Jacob and this is the first book I read solely written by her. I was really excited to read this book because I loved other books she was a part of and wanted more. I was not disappointed, in fact I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself crying at more than one point in the book. So much to the point, I stopped reading to "friend" the author in hopes she would accept and I could tell her she made me cry...bug ugly tears.

Julianna aka Emerald is a trained submissive and CPA by day. She works at Genesis, a BDSM club under the watchful eye and protection of Drake. Drake is a Dom and Trevor is his slave. Emerald is unclaimed, un-owned and miserable as a result. She works the front desk of the club greeting the guests as they arrive for play at Genesis. All these faces coming to seek their pleasure and punishments at the club and Emerald is left alone longing to be claimed. She has dreams at night of her dream Dom and a Guardian Angel that seems to cheer her on in her dreams. When Mr Dream Dom walks into the club one night, I was so happy for Emerald.....but that couldn't be it, I wasn't even 30% into the book....and it wasn't FAR from it!! And I hate spoilers so I will leave it there. This book gutted me. Don't get me wrong there is plenty of HOT sexy scenes to make your panties wet, but the emotions in this book made me a fan for life!!! This book sealed the deal for me. There is no doubt of Jenna Jacob's individual storytelling talent. I can't wait to read Book Two!!
