An Interview with Roxy Sinclair Co-Author of Trapped in His World ~ A Review

There is no escape... 
I was only supposed to be his replacement secretary for one week. Now he has me trapped in his world of twisted and dark desires. I try to get away and I can’t – but the question is – do I really want to? 

Navia Watson is struggling to survive. She has just left school and can’t hold a steady job. Just when she feels that there is no hope, her best friend makes her an offer that she can’t refuse. All she has to do is be a temporary stand in secretary for her friend’s position as the secretary for some billionaire for only a week. One week for some quick cash – how hard can it be? She is in for the surprise of her life when she walks into Jason Black’s office. The dark, sexy billionaire quickly pulls her into his web, one that she can’t unravel herself from. His piercing eyes call to her very soul and the darkness lurking in their depths entices her. 

She suspects that the man is dangerous, but she could never have imagined the depth of the mysteries surrounding him. By the time Navia discovers his true nature, it’s too late for her salvation. Even if is she could leave him, there’s no way he will let her go. She is his and she is not sure she really wants to get away. 

This is a dark romance novella with NO cliffhanger. Intended for audiences 18+ and not for the fainthearted. Contains situations some readers might find objectionable.

Please be aware that Trapped in His World is a dark novella and may not be to everyone's liking. That being said I am a tiny bit torn on my feelings for the book. I understand it is a novella (69 pages) and a writer cannot fit everything that needs to be said in that short amount of writing. To me the characters were pretty well developed, especially Navia, But Jason wasn't quite there. The whys & wherefores of his personality didn't come until the very end. I think if I knew more about why he was like he was in the beginning of the story, I would have given the review 5 "keys"

Navia is a shy young woman who is also a bit down on her luck in the job dept. until her best friend suggests that she covers for her while on her honeymoon. At the wedding, Navia has a brief encounter with a mysterious dark man who turns out to be the man she will be working for temporarily. Jason takes an immediate liking to Navia and can't get her out of his head. They begin a very intense sexual relationship where Jason is so overpowering & Navia is so insecure and shy... can this relationship become more?

In the end, Navia becomes more out spoken and Jason "calms down" a bit so they sort of balance each other out and made the story better. If you are looking for a quick & sexy read that takes a walk on the dark side....then Trapped in his World is the book for you!

A quick chat with Author Rocky Sinclair

Please tell us a little about yourself…. 
I currently live in New York City. I went to college at NYU, and now I work for an investment company in human relations, but I really want to be able to fulfill my dreams and work full time as an author. 
I write mainly in the romantic suspense genre, which includes bad boys, as well as dark romances and stepbrother romances. I also write action packed romances and mafia romances. 

How/when did you decide to write? 
I decided to write back in high school when I was on the school newspaper. I realized I loved writing but was too scared to pursue it back then. 

What is one thing about you that your readers would find surprising or never guess about you? 
That I am one of the shyest people you will meet! Even if I don’t come across like that based off my writing. 

Tell us a little about your latest book/release/WIP? 
My latest book being released this week is called Entitled: A Bad Boy Romance. I have co-written it with Danielle Slater. It’s about Devlin, a bad boy, and Ayron, the woman he meets. She can’t fall in love with him, but at the same time, can’t let him find out who she really is. Ayron of course does not meet him by chance—she was hired to watch over and counsel Devlin. And all of this was orchestrated by none other than Devlin’s father! 

What’s one thing that you enjoy most about writing? Least? 
I like being able to create new characters and provide emotion in a story. It makes the reader feel like they are right there beside them (or in their heads, depending on the point of view). The thing I enjoy the least is waiting for readers’ reactions to my book. It’s just so scary to experience! 

Who is one of your favorite authors that you enjoy reading? 
I love reading Stephen King—a man who needs no introduction. I love his story telling abilities. I want to be able to get there. Maybe one day I will! 
Quickie Questions 

Milk or Dark chocolate? 
Milk chocolate for sure 

Coffee or tea? 
Neither! I Only drink water. 

Leather or lace? 

Hard & Fast or Long & Slow? 
Long and Slow 

Favorite junk food? 
Oreos—those things are SO addicting! 

One thing (object, not people) you can’t live without? 
My laptop—don’t know where I would be without it. 

One unusual item in/on/around your workspace? 
Dwight bobblehead from The Office. Whenever I think I can’t do something, I make his head bob usually in an up and down fashion and it motivates me even more. 
Favorite adult beverage? 
Malibu rum!


Roxy Sinclaire writes steamy, suspenseful romantic stories as the main genre, and this includes a variety of different topics. Some of these include dark romances, action packed romances, mafia romances, and many more. She currently works in customer relations in New York City, but is trying to fulfill her passion in writing and eventually have her dream job become a reality.

Reckless Heat by Lynn Raye Harris ~ Spotlight & Giveaway

Reckless Heat 
A Hostile Operations Team Prequel

Reckless Heat
He’s my best friend. He’s everything I ever wanted. And he doesn’t know how I feel. I have three weeks left to tell him before he leaves this place forever…

There’s only one way I know how to do that. I have to give him what I’ve never given anyone. I’m going to ask him to be my first… Matt Girard is the guy every girl wants. Rich, handsome, and popular, his future is brighter than the sun. Evie Baker comes from the wrong side of town. She loves Matt desperately, but he only sees her as his tomboy best friend instead of the young woman she’s blossomed into. Until one fateful night when a reckless dare changes everything…


'I’m still coming to terms with this, still trying to figure out what it means for Matt and me. As if there is a Matt and me.
There never will be now.
I pinch the bridge of my nose and work on breathing. “He said we’ll always be friends, that he’ll stay in touch with me.”
Julie sighs. “Well, that’s something anyway. And he probably will. The two of you have been friends forever.”
“I don’t want to be friends.” I clutch my fist to my chest where it hurts so badly. “I want him to feel what I feel, Jules. I want him to ache for me, to need me…”
My throat hurts. I can’t tell anyone else this. But Jules understands.
“I know, Evie.”
I close my eyes and roll my head around on my neck, easing the tension. “Three more weeks. He leaves right after graduation.”
I still have another year to go before I graduate. I mean, I’ve always known I’ll spend my senior year at Rochambeau High without Matt Girard—but I thought he’d be at LSU, close enough to come home on weekends. Close enough to visit if Mama lets me borrow the car sometimes.
He would realize someday what I already know—that we’re meant to be together. I’ve always been certain of it and I’m willing to be patient.
But how is he going to do that if we never see each other anymore? What if he meets someone else? What if he forgets me?
I have to do something before I lose him forever. But I don’t know what…"

  Fighting Dirty - Blog Tour Cover    
Fighting Dirty by Lori Foster is the final book in her addicting and wicked hot MMA-themed Ultimate Series. Check out the excerpt below to see just what we mean. Happy reading! 
“Jesus, Quick. You’re a freak of nature. You know that, right?” 
Armie Jacobson, known as Quick to his fighter friends, ignored the complaint and threw a few more jabsthen a solid body shot, making Justice, a six-foot-five heavyweight, double over. Stepping back, Armie flexed his hands, bounced on the balls of his feet, and waited. 
Unfortunately, Justice only put his hands on his knees and sucked air. 
Frowning, Armie removed his mouthpiece. “Seriously? Come on, dude. Let’s go.” 
“Screw you.” Schlepping back to his corner, Justice grabbed up a water bottle. He doused his head and chest, and then started chugging. 
Aware of others watching, Armie said nothing. Everyone worked out, trained and sparred in the rec center, but lately, whenever he did, a dozen or more people stopped to watch. He didn’t mind an audience. Hell, he couldn’t be a competitor if he did. For the most part he paid no attention. Once he got in the cage, he went into a zone and the world receded. 
But this insane ogling shit, like he was a damned sideshow, bugged him big-time. 
A trickle of sweat tracked down his temple from his headgear, and he swiped a forearm over his face. His muscles burned and more sweat soaked his chest, abs and rolled down his spine. He was figuring out what to say to Justice to get him back in action when he picked up her scent. The faint perfume cut through the rec center air, thick with the smells of sweaty men working hard. 
Trying to look casual, Armie stared at Justice but in his peripheral vision he saw her striding across the room. No mistaking that long-legged gait, or that longer dark hair. He swallowed, frozen. 
“What?” Justice asked, sounding both suspicious and ridiculously alarmed with the way Armie had locked onto him. 
Armie shook his head – and thankfully Merissa disappeared into the hallway leading to the offices. 
Releasing a breath, he looked toward the clock and frowned. Yeah, they’d been at it for a while, maybe longer than he’d intended. His cardio was better than most, definitely better than Justice’s, the big lug. 
Armie walked over to him. “You need to get more gas in the tank.” 
“Go fuck yourself.” 
When Armie grinned, Justice eyed him warily. “Stop it.” 
That switched his grin to a frown. “Bitchy much?” 
Justice slouched against the wall and glared back. “You shouldn’t be able to grin, you prick. You should be as tired as me.” 
A natural trainer, Armie took pity on him. “You’re a lot bigger.” As a six-foot tall middleweight, Armie stood five inches shorter and weighed a lot less than Justice. 
“Lotta good it does me.” 
Squatting down in front of him, Armie said low, “People are watching, so stop whining.” 
Justice’s gaze slipped past him and he groaned. 
“Yeah, the big dogs are here again.” Damned nosy bastards. Ever since he’d signed with the SBC, the powers-that-be had been scoping him out like their newest lab rat. “Stand up, go another two minutes with me, then we’ll call it quits.” 
Huffing out a breath, Justice lumbered to his feet. “Freak of nature,” he muttered again, but he followed Armie out to the center of the ring, and he did his best. 
His best was nowhere near good enough against Armie. 
But then, they fought for very different reasons. 
Twenty minutes later, fresh from the showers, Armie was ready to head out. The mid February weather left frost on every surface, so he tugged on a stocking hat over his still wet hair and pulled a thick hooded sweatshirt on over his clothes. Carrying his gym bag, he entered the main area cautiously. This late in the day, the mats were now cleared. Miles and Brand took their turn mopping with sanitizer. Many of the lights were turned down and only the core group of friends remained, clustered together in conversation. 
The SBC heads were gone, and better still, he didn’t see Merissa anywhere. She’d probably just been dropping off paperwork for her brother, Cannon, who owned the rec center. 
Relieved, Armie started for the door. With any luck, he’d manage it before someone stopped him – 
“Hey, Armie.” 
Damn. After a slight hesitation, he turned to where Denver, Stack and Cannon all stood together. “What’s this? The three Married Musketeers?” 
Stack, who’d only married a month ago, reeked of satisfaction. “Aw, he’s jealous.” 
Yup. But since he’d die before admitting it, Armie said, “Nope.” 
Denver, still a newlywed himself, grinned. “Probably lonely too, poor guy.” 
Very. Groupies, orgies, and random one-night stands could only take a guy so far. He had a rep for sexual excess, and that’s what the ladies wanted from him. That, and nothing more. 
Checking the time, Armie said, “I could be lonely with three very nice ladies if you yahoos would let me leave.” 
Unlike the others, Cannon didn’t laugh. “Seriously? Again?” 
Why the hell did his best friend have to sound so disapproving? And if he knew why Armie had made those plans, he’d probably be pissed as well as disapproving, because it was thoughts of Cannon’s little sis that he worked so hard to obliterate. Not that a foursome would accomplish much beyond taking the edge off. His obsession with Merissa seemed to amplify by the day. 
Copping an attitude, Armie shrugged. “Yeah, really. Unless you have something –” Or someone “- better for me to do?” 
“As a matter of fact, that’s why I wanted to talk to you.” 
Well hell. He hadn’t figured on that. Armie ran a hand over his hair. “Then let’s hear it.” 
“Yvette wanted everyone to come over tonight to hang out and visit.” 
Armie adored Yvette. She was perfect for Cannon and a real sweetheart. But damn... “Who all will be there?” 
With a very knowing smile, Cannon said, “Everyone important to us. So don’t miss it.” 
Double damn. Merissa definitely counted as important. 
Armie didn’t want to, but with all the guys eyeballing him, how could he refuse? “What time?” 
Armie scowled. “What do you mean, now?” 
“Now, as in you don’t have time to do anything else, so forget it.” 
Justice came dragging out, his faux-hawk hair still wet, his goatee in need of a trim, and his cauliflower ears worse than ever. He shoulder-bumped Armie as he passed. “If you hadn’t been determined to cripple me, maybe you’d have had more time for playing.” 
“Wuss,” Armie accused with a grin. 
“He has a point,” Brand said as he pushed a mop bucket toward them. 
Miles, giving one last swipe of the mat, followed him. “Keep pushing that hard and you’re liable to hurt something before the competition.” 
“I still have two months.” Two months of freedom and he’d spend it however he wanted. Sure, Armie knew there were established training methods, but they weren’t for him. Never had been, never would be – no matter who he fought for. 
“This isn’t local fighting anymore,” Denver reminded him. 
As if he’d forget. 
“Carter Fletcher isn’t a slouch,” Miles added. “You might not walk through him like you do the local guys.” 
“They call him Chaos for a reason.” Brand frowned. “I’ve seen him fight and he’s unpredictable.” 
Yeah, so his first opponent was supposed to be a stud. Big deal. Armie shrugged to show he didn’t really care. Not that long ago the SBC, the most widely known MMA organization, had run him to ground and all but coerced him into signing on with them. Cannon had helped with that, pushing him to take the next step since he’d already demolished all the records in local venues. 
It was a big step, too, something all the other guys had worked for. The SBC paid a lot more and offered incredible name recognition. Their fighters traveled the world to compete. 
But Armie liked being low key; it was a hell of a lot safer for multiple reasons. If it wasn’t for Cannon – 
“He’ll do fine against Carter,” Cannon said. “And don’t worry about his training. Armie motivates differently, that’s all.” 
Always, no matter what, Cannon had his back. As the only other person to know why he’d avoided fame and fortune, Cannon understood. They weren’t related, but they were brothers all the same. 
Which was the second biggest reason he couldn’t, shouldn’t, crave Merissa the way he did. Cannon protected those he loved. 
And he loved his sister a lot. 
“It’s getting late,” Cannon added. “Don’t want to keep Yvette waiting.” 
Glad for the switch in topic, Armie pulled out his phone. “Guess I better make some calls and let the ladies know I won’t make it after all.” 
Stack looked at Denver. “If it was anyone but Armie, I’d think he was making it up.” 
“Lonely,” Denver confirmed. 
Armie walked away knowing they were right.


The long awaited release of Armie's story is here and it has absolutely lived up to all my expectations! Armie has been a fan favorite character in Lori Foster's Ultimate series since the beginning. 

When you look up "bad boy" in the dictionary you will find a picture of super sexy Armie. All along I have thought that image of Armie has been a facade and boy was I correct. The reasons behind the image he puts out will leave you in such an emotional wreck. Merissa (Rissy) has known all along there was a great guy underneath all those sexy muscles and attitude, she just had to find a way to get him to show his true nature. Armie won't allow himself to love, he thinks he is not capable, he believes himself so unworthy of Merissa that he has run from her each & every time.

Armie & Rissy's story was so worth the wait, the way Lori Foster has written their story brings all the build-up from the previous books into a perfectly well rounded story-line and gives us fans the best book in the entire series!

*Received an ARC from the Author in exchange for my honest review

And don’t miss the previous books in the Ultimate Series!
