“What the hell is so funny?” I lick up the column of her exposed throat.
“The look on your face.”
“Glad to amuse you, babe, but you won’t think it’s quite so funny when I punish you for your little stunt.”
“Whatever you say. It was innocent.”
“Innocent? You’re in a bar in a strange city, with some of the craziest girls in the world, looking like a fucking sex kitten, and you call that innocent?”
“You think I look like a sex kitten?” Her voice goes low.
“Absofuckinglutely. Hottest girl in this room. The hair, the body, the outfit... Every guy in here, with the exception of our friends, wants to fuck you. Lucky for me, that’s my job. And when I get you alone, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”
Her eyes grow hazy with lust, and she licks her lower lip. “Can you tell me more about this punishment?”
 I move her to a dark corner and pin her against the wall. “Stop looking at me like that, Ember. I’m not above fucking you against the bathroom wall.”
“Ummm, sounds like fun. What else.” She taunts me, and I grow hard against her pelvis.
“You like that? You want me to talk dirty and tell you I want to eat your fucking pussy until you beg for mercy for leaving me tonight? Make you come silently against my mouth, fingers, and dick while we’re in a house full of people?”
“Yes, I want that. I want you any and every way I can get you.”

NEW REVIEW: Consolation Duet by Corinne Michaels

Title: Consolation
 Author: Corinne Michaels 

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

 Holy Freaking Cliffhanger, Batman!! The story and plot, although a bit predictable, was a decent read. Natalie is pregnant with her miracle baby and, and her husband,Aaron, is killed in an overseas mission. Aaron's best friend, Liam, steps up to make sure Natalie is taken care of. They fall in love. There is guilt and anguish on both their parts that they must work through. It's quite a quaint little story...until the end. WHAM! Out of left field cliffhanger.

The writing and character development of the main and minor characters are strong enough to make me read the second book, Conviction.


Natalie needs to live for her daughter. She needs to learn how to move forward and live after her husband dies. How does she move on and forward when all she has know and loved is Aaron? How does she move on when a piece of her is gone?

I shouldn't want this.
But I do.

I shouldn't be this comfortable in his arms.
But I am.

I should make him leave and put some distance between us.
But I can't.

Liam was Aaron's best friend. He was at her wedding. He came to her house, spent time with her husband. She shouldn't be having these feelings. The only problem is sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants.

Liam was just there to help Natalie. To be there for her. One day turned into the next and he was a constant in Natalie's life.

I swore I would look after her if something happened, but no one told me I'd fall in love with my best friend's wife. I need to walk away before I'm in too deep.

Corinne Michaels knows how to write a book that's not just a story but a journey. And that's what this is, a journey, Natalie & Liam's journey. She makes you feel what Natalie is going through. Her every thought and emotion. What emotions Liam struggles with each day. And the ghost they both are fighting.

All these emotions are exactly what you feel at the end. I'm not going to lie the cliffhanger was BIG but the shock factor was there so you felt all these emotions right along with these characters.

This book is a MUST READ!

Title: Conviction
 Author: Corinne Michaels 

Genre: Contemporary Romance 


 Consolation was a believable story with a cliffhanger plot twist that seems could only happen in fiction. I was emotionally invested in the story so I was compelled to read Conviction. Corinne Michaels was able to take an "only in the movies" story line and complete it with completely believable human reactions and emotions.

Aaron, the presumed dead husband, is alive after all. While he was away, his dirty little secret came to light. Natalie, Aaron's wife, had to completely re-evaluate her relationship with Aaron. She saw it for what it truly was, including her faults as well as Aaron's. Liam, Aaron's best friend, had to decide if he was going to fight to keep Natalie or bow out gracefully.

Conviction ended well. It was a book that showed life is messy, but livable.
 ***If you haven't read Consolation then you MUST read that first.***

This book was highly anticipated after we were left with that HUGE cliffhanger.

Natalie was finally moving on with her life. She found love after never thinking it was possible. She moved forward after having a mother bomb dropped on her. Now she comes face to face with another shocker. How will she move forward from this?

"I need a minute. I need a few of them. I love you, but I have to go."

Liam has found the one person he never thought he would find. The one person that completes him, makes him whole. But will she pick him in the end.

"Loving you was never the issue. It's keeping you when you're not mine to have."

Corinne Michaels takes us on another rollercoaster ride. I couldn't turn the pages faster enough to see the outcome. What was Natalie going to do? Was this going to be a messy love triangle?

"I think I was always yours to have. I'm just hoping you'll see that soon."

All those emotions you felt reading Consolation were all there. Corinne pulls you in keeping you captivated from page one to the very last page.

Natalie is such a strong willed woman. For everything that life has thrown at her she has survived. An inspiration to other woman. Liam is just a sexy Dreamboat.

A great conclusion to this perfect duet.

NEW REVIEW: Love is Louder by Antoinette Candela

Title: Love is Louder 
 Author: Antoinette Candela  
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Love is Louder Cover

When does love fall apart? Do you see it? Do you feel it? Can you save it?
When two worlds collide it sets off an unlikely chain of events, creating temptations and feelings that did not exist and changing the course of two random strangers. A crumbling marriage to a successful husband, A man fighting to keep his family together, Two people looking to reconcile and bury their past lives. Lives comes together that would never have been, where one secret will turn their worlds upside down. What happens when the truth is finally exposed? Will both sides end up hurt and alone? When does love reappear? Do you see it? Do you feel it? Do you fight for it? Love is beautiful. Love is quiet. Love is ugly. Love is Louder.

 I really liked this book! I began reading it expecting a typical angst filled romance of a woman torn between two men. I was SO pleasantly surprised to quickly read otherwise. This book has a complex plot with characters that have true depth. Nothing feels contrived or forced.

There are three main characters whose lives are mysteriously intertwined through one pregnant woman (Meadow) killed by a hit and run driver four years prior. Mason, Meadow's sister, seems to be the perfect all American man. Brie is the married woman he has serious chemistry with. James is Brie's unfaithful husband. Before the end of the book, I was actually feeling compassion for James, even as I disliked him. Invoking those feelings in a reader takes serious talent from the writer.

There are several minor characters that are vital to the development of the book. They have been just as deeply developed as the major characters and are much more than mere "extras".

The book ends with many unanswered questions, but in no way leaves the reader feeling cheated. I'm looking forward to the sequel.

One Night
by Lorhainne Eckhart
Series: Kate and Walker: Deadly Dangerous & Desired Series
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 30, 2015

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Lorhainne Eckhart brings you ONE NIGHT, A high-stakes suspense and sizzling, red-hot romance!

A blind date goes deadly on a night she’ll never forget!

     He’d died and gone to heaven.
     Then the cold reality bit him as he stared at the naked woman—who had the curviest ass he’d ever seen in his twenty-eight years—next to him. Kate was lying on his bed, and her breathing was light. He wondered if, in fact, she’d fallen asleep. What the fuck was he thinking, screwing a woman he should be protecting? He didn’t even want to think about all the ethical boundaries he’d just crossed. He ripped off the condom and walked across the hall to the bathroom to dump it in the garbage. When he strode back into the bedroom, the bedside light was on, and Kate had crawled under the comforter.
     He stood before her, naked, and she sat up, running her gaze over him. She wasn’t shy, and he could tell she appreciated what she saw. But then…hell, look at her! She had a pair of tits that could make a man howl, and her ass gave him enough to hang on to. She wasn’t a toothpick, she was a woman: curvy enough, strong enough that she could take him and keep up with him. He didn’t want to worry about a woman breaking under him.
     There were times like now when he just wanted to ride a woman hard. It was satisfying. He didn’t want soft and easy. His life wasn’t made that way. He wasn’t made that way.
     “No regrets,” he said to her. He didn’t ask, because the last thing he wanted was a woman having second thoughts after all was done.
     “None, you?” she asked him, sliding her knees up and wrapping her arms around them.
     He could smell her from where he was, and he felt himself hardening again. There were times when he could walk away satisfied after having a woman, but there was something about Kate and the way she watched him, so seductive and sensual, that stirred something in him. She wasn’t asking for a commitment. She had offered him her body, and he had taken it.

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart’s books have been described as Longmire meets old-school Dallas, and she recently received the 2013 Readers’ Favorite Award for Romantic Suspense for her title Lost and Found. With over thirty five titles under her belt, her big family romance series have become a fan favorite.
