Disheveled, UCC Saga #1

disheveledIf you’re a fan of Eva Lenoir’s writing you’re sure to enjoy Disheveled as much as her other books. If you’re a first time reader of Lenoir’s, well, you’ve picked one hell of a story to start with. Disheveled is one of those books that you can kick your feet up with a glass of wine by the pool or curl up on the couch for a day of reading. This would be a great book to share with your girlfriends or book club. A quick well rounded read with romance, witty banter, lots of humor, and a few sex scenes with enough heat to have you fanning your cheeks. Dia and Cole are the focus of the first book in the UCC Saga but the book is filled with more characters you’re going to want to know more about and I for one am really hoping that Eva plans to give each and everyone of them their own book.

Dia and Cole have been roommates for years and have enjoyed their close friendship, but lately things have seemed a bit off. Cole, ever the playboy lawyer, is surely running out of women he can sleep with in the DC area. Dia on the other hand seems more concerned with running her art gallery than finding a boyfriend. Couldn’t have anything to do with the fact she has had feelings for Cole for a long time could it? When Dia decides to try out a dating site, Cole isn’t exactly happy about it, but like any overprotective roommate and friend would do, he tells her to set up a profile without her picture to find a man who will appreciate her and not just her looks. Dia finds herself falling for her own faceless suitor who seems to know her secret fantasies and desires and draws her into a couple rendezvous that left her reeling. (They left me wanting to be Dia, that’s for sure.) The only problem Dia has is this person, her mystery suitor – well, he’s still not Cole. She feels guilty for not telling him about the situation too, but she knows he’d probably blow a gasket at how dangerous it was and how stupid she was for putting herself into the hands of a stranger.

In love and friendship, things aren’t always what they seem though and we learn that maybe, if the timing is right, everyone can get what their heart wants and have their happily ever after. Cole and Dia are no exception and you’re going to want to lock both of them in a room so they will open their damn eyes and see what’s waiting right in front of them. A little side note, you’re going to be racking your brain for weeks after reading this trying to figure out what UCC stands for. Don’t bother. Eva won’t crack and you’ll never figure it out. Just enjoy the book and patiently wait for the second book in the UCC Saga. I know I am.

Defining Us, 69 Bottles #6

Zoey Derrick’s 69 Bottles series is one of my favorites, that’s no secret. Defining Us, the 6th and last of the series was by far some of the best writing that Zoey Derrick has ever published. Eric and Calvin, aka Peacock and Mouse, have been the members of 69 Bottles that have been quietly sitting back in the series and waiting for their time to shine. I fell for both of them in the first book and I will admit asked Zoey with every book after “So when will Calvin and Erik get their book?”.  Let me tell you, the wait was well worth it.

Calvin is a man haunted by a painful past filled with unspeakable horrors all because of a father who could not accept a gay son. For years he played the role of the heterosexual playboy taking woman after woman. What people saw was what he wanted them to see. What he thought he should be. What he was forced to be. If only he could as easily pretend his feelings for his best friend and bandmate Eric were only of that, friends. What he feels for Eric goes beyond that, but something in him won’t let those feelings come to the surface and certainly not out to the public eye.

Eric came out to all the members of the band in the last book and everything changed for him and his relationship with his best friend Calvin. They have both skated around their feelings for each other for years and now Eric is tired of fighting it. He wants Calvin and knows he won’t be happy until they are together. What Eric finds out about Calvin’s past explains the constant push he gets from him, and it may be enough to keep them apart forever.

I cannot begin to explain the emotional hangover you’re going to have from this book. There are very few authors out there that can write M/M and keep you engaged beyond the sex. There are even fewer authors out there that will hint at the social, emotional, and physical atrocities that the gay community faces. Zoey Derrick not only touched on the subject, she jumped in head first and made sure that the reader had no choice but to join her. Defining Us was heartbreaking, inspirational, uplifting, romantic and so damn sexy at the same time you won’t know whether you want to cry or take a cold shower, sometimes both at the same time. A story for everyone, a story of true love overcoming all obstacles and being loved for who you really are.

I could go on and on about Defining Us, but once you’ve read the first 5 books in the 69 Bottles series, you will be jumping at the opportunity to read Eric and Calvin’s story.

If I could give this 10 stars I would, but I will settle for the 5 that I can. Bravo Zoey Derrick, you are a simply amazing!

Genre: New-adult Contemporary

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26246266-blossoming-flower?ac=1

Blurb:

In the wake of the collapse of her father’s business empire, Flor, the gorgeous

twenty-one year-old daughter of disgraced former Brazillionaire Gustavo de Lima, is

forced to forge her own path in life.

Flor decides that none of it—the private jets, the vacation homes and the luxury

cars—were real. Or at least they really didn’t matter. The only thing that’s real for

Flor is her love of horses and her desire to go to veterinary school.

Heading into her final year of college, Flor seeks out the help of an unlikely

benefactor to secure a summer internship working with horses. Arriving at the

secluded Belo Horizonte ranch, Flor is awed not only by the majestic beauty of the

place, but also by handsome cowboy and skilled horse trainer, Collin Taylor. Yet

nothing is quite as it appears on the surface.

When the hidden past is revealed, will love end up blossoming for Flor?

Blossoming Flower - teaser 1.1

Excerpt:

Flor throws herself into work the next week, trying her best to forget about

that touch. She does what she can to keep Paco and his inviting eyes at arms’ length

as well. What for? She chides herself. In case Collin accepts her invitation for coffee?

Even she has to laugh at that. But what then?

It’s only ten weeks until she leaves for Smith. Ten weeks isn’t a lot of time,

but when you’re young, it’s certainly long enough to try to get to know someone.

“Are you interested in coming over tonight?” Paco asks Flor as she helps him

sort out semen samples in the lab.

She closes the door to the small fridge and smiles. “To watch a movie?”

He chuckles and removes his gloves. Leaning toward her he says, “I was

thinking along the lines of wine and music. But if you prefer a movie . . . .”

Flor shakes her head.

“No to the movie?” Paco asks, running his hands through his thick hair.

Flor watches, mesmerized by his smooth manner.

“I don’t get it, Flor. One moment, I think you’d like to get to know me, then

the next, you act like you don’t.” He steps toward her. She remains frozen, his gaze

holding her in place, her eyes watching his gorgeous lips move.

What did he just say?

“Usually I can tell when a woman is attracted to me, but you, I get mixed

signals.” He reaches out and runs a finger along the back of her hand.

Nope, not even a flicker of electricity. Flor looks down and doesn’t answer. But

still she’s extremely attracted to him. Her panties are wet, and it’s a struggle to

control her breathing.

The Argentinian draws his long finger up to her chin. “You are incredibly

beautiful, Flor,” he whispers. His face inches closer to hers, his blue/gray eyes

searching hers. He wants permission and a part of her is screaming to give it as

much as it’s screaming for her to leave. She closes her eyes and parts her lips,

knowing it won’t feel right. She wants him to realize it too.

Paco’s lips are as soft as she imagined them to be. He reaches his hand

around her neck and pulls her body to him, his tongue entering and searching for

more. It feels better than Flor even imagined when she lay awake touching herself,

picturing him covering her body with his mouth and tongue.

All of a sudden she’s on fire. Flor reaches up, her hands on either side of his

face. Their kiss deepens as his hands begin to roam, slowly unleashing the desire

she’s felt since she first laid eyes on him.

The kiss feels incredible. He’s truly an expert at reading a woman. His tongue

traces her lips before biting down softly on her bottom lip. The sensation travels

straight down to her sex, pulsing with need. That’s what this is now. Pure,

unadulterated need. He sparked it in her, and now he’s stoking the fire with every

touch, every kiss.

As Paco’s lips travel down her neck, she catches their reflection in the

window. The image of them together with her in his arms, makes her stop. She

wrenches herself out of his embrace.

“I’ve got to go,” she whispers.

Before Paco has a chance to respond, she’s already out the door. When Flor

nears the house, she stops and leans against a large magnolia tree, slides down the

trunk, and hugs her knees to her chest. Flor tries to push the image of her and Paco

out of her head. He’s not the one she wants. It’s Collin.

Why these men and why now? She laments. In the few short weeks she’s been

here, she’s allowed herself to be consumed by longing for one and being pursued by

another. Is this karma? Flor wonders. The moment she determines she doesn’t want

to fall in love or become entangled in anything the universe puts not one, but two

desirable men in her path. Although one doesn’t seem to want her back.

Flor stands slowly, watching bees flit from flower to flower on the low

hanging branches. No one thing or person is worth the energy at this point, she

resolves. She’ll do as she pleases and let the chips fall where they may.

Sky of Dreams, Passionate Hearts book 1

sky of dreamsUsually a writer of wickedly erotic stories that sets fire to the pages, Jenna Jacob takes a step into the genre of contemporary romance with Sky of Dreams, the first in her new Passionate Hearts series. Jacob has blown me away with a heart felt thrilling journey into the hearts and lives of two very damaged people both finding their ways back home. With a full cast of very strong characters you can easily step into the world of Connor, Iowa that Jacob has built. Kaitlin Grant and Sky Whitefeather are combustible when in each other’s presence but it’s the tangible and timeless love for each other that drew me to the story.  The action and suspense kept the story fast paced and impossible to put down. In typical Jenna Jacob style, the story plows into your mind from the first page and takes you on a ride where every one of your emotions is played on until you’ve reached the last page.

For those of you who are fans of Jenna’s other series, don’t fret, even with the contemporary romance tag, you still get a satisfying amount of scenes that will make you bite your lip and wish for a Sky Whitefeather all your own. No one does “steamy” like Jenna Jacob.

I look forward to what Jenna Jacob has in store for the rest of the characters she’s so teasingly left us wondering about. Simply a brilliant piece of work from and amazing author brave enough to step out of the comfort of her normal genre.

The irresistible woman stirs up emotions he longs to forget and rekindles desires that might burn him alive.

Instruction (Instruction Trilogy #1) by L.M. Pruitt

51nC8wBAA6L._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_Taylor Allerton is a socialite and party girl, but she has brains. She is the owner of the hottest club around, and she is becoming quite successful.  Needing an accountant, she meets the highly recommended Namir Adeem, who at a young age has moved to the top of a Manhattan accounting firm. Taylor is attracted to the handsome young man who is successful in the corporate world, but inexperienced in the bedroom.  She decides to make him an offer he can’t refuse when she volunteers to be his instructor.

Despite being totally different people, Taylor and Namir have quite the chemistry.  She definitely does not lack in worldly knowledge.  Namir, however, was the studious type. He constantly had his nose in the books in order to graduate early, start a career, and gain his family’s approval.  Partying and dating were never on the agenda. When guided by the sexy Taylor he proves that he is still a committed student.
I know L.M. Pruitt from her Winged series, and became a huge fan.  The Winged series definitely had its steamy moments so writing an erotic romance was not a huge leap. Instruction is sexy, but it has substance. What transpires between the two was meant to be strictly sex, but it is apparent there is potential for something more. I can’t wait to see what happens between them in the next book.

Excerpt:

“I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve had to dissuade a woman in a bar.”

He barked out a laugh. “Ms. Allerton, I’ve spent more time in libraries and schoolrooms than in drinking establishments. I’ll confess, if you hadn’t intervened, I’m not sure how I would have handled your friend.”

“Look, I’ve already decided to hire you, so you really don’t need to continue plugging your education.”

“I assure you, that’s not my intention at all.” He coughed and scratched the side of his nose again. “I’m simply trying to inform you, as delicately as possible, that I am not used to this sort of… open culture.”

I stared at him, working to process his words. “I’m sorry, I’m not really following what you’re saying.”

“When I say I lack experience in certain areas, I mean I… lack experience.” He leaned his head back and closed his eyes. “You do not achieve the success I have at my age without making some sacrifices along the way.”

“Oh.” As the full impact of his words sank in, my eyes widened involuntarily. “Oh. Oh, God. Now I’m even more sorry about Kennedy and how she acted and what she said and–.”

“You don’t need to apologize, Ms. Allerton. You have been beyond professional in every way.” He opened his eyes, tilting his chin down and studying me with a slight smile. “At least you have while in my presence.”

“Well, thank God we can’t get in trouble simply for having dirty thoughts.” I crossed my legs and laughed. “Although it’s probably only me having those thoughts.”

He sat silent for long minutes before clearing his throat. “You would be wrong, Ms. Allerton.”

I lifted my brows, tilting my head to the side. “Oh?”

“I hope this won’t impact our professional relationship but since you are being honest, so must I.” His gaze shifted to mine and I sucked in a breath. “I find you very attractive, Ms. Allerton.”

“In the spirit of continued honesty… my friend was right.” I picked up my glass, taking along sip of watered down tea. “I want to fuck you.”

“As flattering as I find your statement, I doubt it would be very good for you, all things considered.”

“Do you want me to teach you?” I hadn’t even known the thought was in my head until the words were echoing in the room but it was instantly an obsession. Slowly, I began sliding around the booth toward him. “I will—as much as you’re willing to learn.”

He dropped his gaze to the table, shifting restlessly. “You should check on your friend.”

“You didn’t answer the question.”

“It was a highly inappropriate question, Ms. Allerton.”

“Still not an answer.” I leaned closer, my mouth a half inch from his. “Do you want me to educate you or not?”

His lips parted on a sigh. “Yes. I do.”

“Wonderful.” I leaned back, pretending not to see the disappointment flash across his face. “We’ll start tomorrow.”

No Prince Charming (Secrets of Stone #1) by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue

no princeClaire Montgomery is on a team that has the task of fixing PR nightmares, and because of his brother’s recklessness Killian Stone is in dire need of their help. When he brings the team into the Stone Global Corporation he doesn’t expect Claire or anyone else to get through the walls he has erected. There is a lot at stake when they both realize they each have secrets that could expose them. .

Claire’s life reminds me a little of Cinderella’s. Her boss is about to become her stepmother. She is unsure of Andrea’s sincerity where the love of her father is concerned. There are no delusions of her future stepsister; Margaux is a manipulator who has a sense of entitlement. Killian Stone is gorgeous and successful.  On the outside it appears he has the world at his feet, but deep down there is something lacking. He lives in fear of his own secret, but something about Claire makes him want something different than the life he is leading.

No Prince Charming is hot; don’t let the title fool you, Killian Stone can be as charming as they come when he wants to be! I loved everything about Claire and Killian. I couldn’t wait to see their story unfold, and I couldn’t put the book down. Payne and Blue will hook you with this sexy, sophisticated, and romantic read. I am ready to see what the couple will face in the already released novel titled No More Masquerade.

“Once upon a time, there was a girl who dressed up and went to a big party at the palace. When she was there, she met a prince. They danced and fell in love…”

Damn good line. Too bad I don’t believe a word of it anymore.

My name is Claire Montgomery…and I’m not a princess. I’m a fighter. I worked hard to earn my place on the emergency image repair team for one of the biggest public relations companies in the country. We’ve been called to the renowned Chicago headquarters of Stone Global Corporation, where it’s our job to clean up a heap of the Stone family’s filthiest laundry. Our success will be the biggest victory of my career. I’m on my game. I’m ready.

Why doesn’t “ready” include a contingency plan for Killian Stone?

My name is Killian Stone…and they call me the “Enigma of Magnificent Mile.” That’s just the way I like it. Elite tycoons want into my bank account. Their wives and daughters want into my pants. They’ll all do anything for a piece of the enigma—until a crack in the castle is too huge for anyone to ignore. What they all don’t know is that I’m thrilled about the fissure. Their fascination with the scandal means nobody will look at the bigger secret of the Stone family. I’m safe.

Until Claire Montgomery walks through my doors.
Her honesty, her bravery, her humor…they pull me in, a prism against the gray walls of my tower. I’m captivated. For the very first time, I long to shed the enigma. To share my secret. But what the hell will that get me? Even if she fits the slipper I offer…I’m no Prince Charming.

The Dahlia Trilogy (The Gilded Flower Series, Books 4-6) by Vivian Winslow

dalia trilogyDahlia’s twin sister Lily has found love. It seems Dahlia is on track for her own happily ever after too, but she failed to think of the past that could come back to haunt her.

Dahlia is a socialite who has some major issues. I think she’s learned a couple of things in her short life; money can’t fix everything, and it’s really unfortunate you can’t choose your parents. Dahlia strikes me as a character that has her fair share of fun, and rebellion, but is trying really hard to grow up.

Winslow’s Gilded Flower Series are a group of erotic novellas.  There is more to them than sex, though there is plenty of heat, there is an actual story that is full of emotion. Her characters show the darker side of being born into a prominent family. I felt bad for Dahlia’s character because it is obvious she is starved for love, but it just seems to elude her.
You do not have to read Lily’s Trilogy to read Dahlia’s story; it can stand alone. However, there are returning characters and I recommend reading the previous stories first. Winslow leaves us with a bit of a cliffhanger as to where Dahlia’s future is going and how it is going to intersect with her friend Vi’s. I am looking forward to learning what happens next.
