The Risk, Xtreme Heroes #1 by Skye Jordan - review


The Risk
Xtreme Heroes #1
by Skye Jordan

Blurb:

Former Olympian turned physical therapist to the elite Julia Bailey knows all about pushing the limits. But when a sexual harassment suit costs her a dream job—not to mention her reputation—she takes on the biggest risk of her life. Rehabilitating the X Games’ most notorious bad boy might be just what she needs to secure the funds for her own treatment center. Problem is, the only kind of recovery her new client is interested in is under-the-covers freestyle—gear optional.

Daredevil snowboarder Noah Hunt is a rock star—on and off the slopes. A recent accident might have him down, but he’s far from out. He doesn't care what the sexy therapist with the sweet curves says. He’s got sponsors to impress and trophies to collect, and taking things slow and steady just ain't his style. A little dirty talk and a sizzling night later, Julia learns just how fast and hard he likes to play. Too bad for him, his heart goes all in, and one wrong move could cost him more than just his career.

Review:
The cover alone is worth checking out this book! But, what's between the covers....a super-sexy, fun, fantastic story that had me reading non-stop from beginning to end.

Noah & Julia steam up the pages and practically melt all the snow in Tahoe. Julia is a physical therapist, hired to get Noah back on the slopes after major surgery. Noah thinks he knows what he's doing with his rehab, but, Julia is the best in the business ad won't let him get away with anything..she has been there...done that...and doesn't take crap from anyone. For once there is someone who doesn't pull any punches with Noah, he may not like what he hears, but at least Julia's honest.

Skye Jordan starts a new series off with a bang! This book was fantastic and I can't wait for the next one.

Author:

*I am a New York Times Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my more … sexually heated … works.
My Skye Jordan novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.
And, yes, even love. Because even as Skye Jordan I’m just a happily ever after kinda gal. (Or, in some cases, happily for the foreseeable future.)

Add to Goodreads


Blurb

He wants the world and the admiration of everyone in it. 
Sean Taiden, the inconspicuous drummer of Reckless Beat, is sick of living in the shadows of his bandmates’ success. He’ll do anything to gain the recognition he deserves. Even if it means dancing in a music video to the Reckless track that drives a knife into his broken heart whenever he hears it. The saving grace is the tempting choreographer who may be the one person able to distract him from the agony his life has become.

All she wants is the peace that comes with solitude.
Melody Jenkins knows all about fame. She knows enough to determine she doesn’t want a part of it anymore. After quitting her professional dance career, she set up a quiet studio and focused on starting a new beginning away from prying eyes. Until a sexy drummer strides into her life, making her crave something she can’t have while also pushing her to expose secrets she can’t bear to reveal.

Conflicting aspirations and one inextinguishable passion.
She needs to hide from the world she once owned. He wants to rise to the top, proving to himself and his friends that he’s always been the heartbeat of the band. Caught between what they need and what they want, Melody and Sean have to decide which is more important—their individual plans for the future or their feelings for one another.

Her Soldier's Touch by J.M. Stewart - Review



 Her Soldier’s Touch

 by J.M. Stewart



Blurb:


Experience has taught single mother Rachel Madison that the only person she can truly rely on is herself. But what she wants most in the world—to give her son the life she never had growing up—means she must put her faith in a man who once walked out on her.

Retired from the service, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Colten Taylor makes a detour to Phoenix to bury his brother. Nobody is more surprised than he is to see Rachel waiting for him at the airport. He regrets the morning he walked away from her, but coming from an abusive home taught Colt to put limits on all his relationships—especially this one.

So when he discovers he has a son, Colt knows this is a chance to prove to himself he’s not a chip off the old block. Turning his life around doesn’t come naturally, though. Then a drug dealer crops up from his brother’s dark past, threatening their son and forcing Colt and Rachel to face their demons … and each other.





Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: Crimson Romance
Word Count: 70, 000
Release date: March 16, 2015
ISBN: 9781440581373
ISBN-10: 1440581371


Excerpt:


“Maybe I do it to protect you. Did you ever think of that? I don’t do relationships, Rach. You’re better off finding someone who can give you what you need, because I’m not that man.”

That damn stony wall made her want to hit him just to see him react.

She clenched her fists. “Coward.”

Colt’s head jerked in her direction. His gaze seared into her as he studied her.

“I don’t need your protection.” She glared at him. “I’m perfectly capable of looking out for myself.”

He turned his body fully toward her and copied her stance, folding his arms across his chest. “All right. You really want to know what I’m thinking? Telling me you want me because our son needs his father wasn’t what I hoped you’d say. I wanted you to tell me you wanted me. But, I know damn well I have no right to want that, for exactly that reason … I walked out. And, for the record, I didn’t tell you all that stuff that night to scare you. I was being honest.”

His body heat radiated against her side as he closed the distance between them, stepping into her personal space then taking another step, until his scent of soap and man washed over her and his firm body brushed hers. His voice lowered to a husky murmur, his breath whispering across her cheek.

“More than I should have been. Those eyes of yours pull things out of my mouth I shouldn’t say. You’re my ultimate weakness, sweetheart.”


Review:

First off, can I just say...drool worthy cover! The cover alone made me want to know what was between the pages!

Colt arrives back home for his brother's funeral with the idea that he could take care o business and leave soon after. After seeing his brother's best friend and his former lover, Rachel, Colt changes his mind and decides to stick around for a bit. Rachel thinks she wants nothing to do with Colt, but, in her heart she knows that he deserves a chance to be a father to their child. Can they both move forward and forget where they came from?

I found this book to be a sweet-n-sexy read, with just the right amount of conflict, confusion, and reconciliation. This is the first time I have read anything by J.M. Stewart, and I will be keeping my eye out for more.

Shade: The Last Riders #6 by Jamie Begley - Review & Giveaway




Shade
The Last Riders # 6
By: Jamie Begley  
Releasing March 16th, 2015
Young Ink Press


Blurb


Want, need, pain, and joy were emotions Shade had never known existed before Lily. He knew the first time he saw her face that she was going to change his life forever. The thing he hadn’t expected was how hard it would be to hide who and what he was from her. 

Each step he took out of the shadows revealed more of himself, until only one secret remained. Shade arrogantly believed he could help heal the wounds from her past, but now it was his own past that was trying to tear them apart.


To keep Lily, Shade would have to use the very skills he had been trying to hide from her. The skills that made him a killer … a soulless monster. 




Review:

Before we even get into the book itself...yes, there is some repetitiveness in this book from all the other Last Riders books....BUT, it is from Shade's perspective and that (IMO) gives us a totally new story!

Shade has been my favorite character through out the entire series, so to read this book from his perspective, gives me a whole new insight into the Last Riders and his & Lily's relationship. It is like reading a brand new story (yes, I know some fans have complained) I loved every second I spent reading this book.

We truly get to know Shade and how his mind works in this book..and I just loved that...and Shade! The previous books for me were a great fun read, but this was just freakin' fantastic! Thank You Jamie Begley!

Want Me: Dark Obsession #2 by Cynthia Eden - Review

Want Me
Dark Obsession #2
by Cynthia Eden



She doesn’t play it safe…
Sophie Sarantos has a weakness for dangerous men. She doesn’t like safe lovers—she likes men with a wild, rough edge.  But Sophie may have attracted a lover who is too dangerous, even for her.  Someone is stalking Sophie, slipping into her home, watching her day and night. The stranger seems to know all of Sophie’s darkest secrets, secrets that should never be revealed.
Out of options, Sophie turns to ex-solider Lex Jensen for protection. Lex is part owner of  VJS Protection, Inc., and Sophie hires him as her bodyguard.  She thinks Lex is one of the “good guys” out there, but she couldn’t be more wrong.
He doesn’t play at all…
Lex has his own secrets. Dark, deadly secrets.  And as his feelings for Sophie grow, Lex knows that he is going to have to stop pretending to be a gentleman and, instead, he’ll have to show Sophie who he really is. A man trained to kill. A man too used to evil. A man who will take any risk…as long as he can claim Sophie.
Because there is one thing that Lex wants in this world…one person he desires above all others…Sophie. And no one will hurt her, not on his watch.

Review:

Although Want Me is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. But, I highly recommend you read book #1 Watch Me (click to see my review).

Sophie is a tough, in your face, take no shit, lawyer with a habit for loving bad boys. Lex is a super sexy man with a dark past and a protective streak a mile wide. Sophie knows she is being stalked and hire Lex and his company to protect her. Can they keep their relationship proffessional? Sophie wants to but Lex doesn't.

Once again Cythia Eden takes us on a fabulous rollar coaster ride of intrigue, suspense, and of course lots of hot lovin'. Another book I read from begining to end without stopping (well, I may have stopped for a snack break) I just couldn't put it down!

I look forward to reading book #3 in the Dark Obsession series, Need Me. I just downloaded it last week....
