Until We Meet Again…

blurbuntil we meet againA Club Alias Crossover

Justin, Kenton, and Nico did their job—catching and putting away the trafficker who had been kidnapping young women all over the state of Tennessee. But with all the money the bastard made from selling women as sex slaves, and lawyers as dirty as his bank accounts, Javier Flores was set free.

Frustrated and out of options, the Nashville boys call me, Brian Glover, a BDSM club owner and mercenary.

After a couple of difficult missions, I’m ready to get back to what I’m good at—eliminating bad guys and making it look like an accident. Plus, I’ll jump at any chance to spend time with Clarice, my best friend with benefits who meets me on all of my jobs.

Will this be the mission Clarice finally admits she wants more than friendship? Or will I have to wait… Until We Meet Again?

Happily Ever Alpha Kindle WorldauthorkdrobKD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom, who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a Senior Editor for Hot Tree Editing. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her very own real life romance.

Um, EXCUSE YOU MRS. ROBICHAUX. How dare you give me this masterpiece without a proper ending? I need their HEA. I give this book NEGATIVE 5 STARS because it’s not done!

Ok, I’m being dramatic. Sue me. This book was more than five stars. It was short and sweet and I may have fallen just a little (ok, a lot) in love with Brian. He’s full of contradictions and I freaking love the giant. The title maybe should have given it away but it didn’t so I want more.

I’m usually a bit hesitant about BDSM club books. By hesitant, I mean I don’t read them. I have to look things up because I have no idea what they’re using, or the sub culture is just too much for me, or the guy is into voyeurism and I like guys that are too alpha to let their women be seen by other guys. BDSM clubs just aren’t my kind of kink.

Usually.

I have the first Club Alias book on my kindle, but haven’t read it yet because of my hesitance of BDSM. I’ve read books with it before, and I’ve liked them, but I don’t usually willingly read a book about it (I suck at reading blurbs!). Plus with all the new releases, I kept pushing it off. But, now that I’ve read this book, I NEED to read the rest of the series. I need to know more about Brian and Clarice. I need it. I’m like that Spongebob meme right now (you know the one so don’t pretend like you don’t). I also need their HEA, which I’ve heard they’re going to get, but obviously I don’t have it in my hands right now.

Like it should be. If I beg, will it come out faster? Please?

I loved reading this because it was all in Brian’s POV. It was so fun to see someone so tall (6’8″, hubba hubba) be so deeply in love with Clarice, be so gentle with her, yet also be a Dom. He loves her, and trusts her, to switch with her. He trusts her with info on his jobs, which I think I love more than anything else. It’s so different than the “I can’t tell you but it’s for your protection” thing. This book was short, sweet, and sexy, so I’m going to make my review short and sweet too (but not sexy). Go get this book, because you will LOVE it. This was my first KD book but it won’t be my last!

Until Mallory by Ella Fox Review

blurbuntilmalloryMallory McDonald might have bitten off more than she could chew when she moved to Nashville. That could be because the temporary rental she’s in is a dump, or it might be that the police just kicked in the door of said rental and came in with their weapons drawn.

Officer John Wright is stunned to realize the girl standing in front of him with her hands up is the former neighbor he’s pined over for years. Now that he’s finally got her within his sights, he plans never to let her go.

mallory2.jpg

Every time I read one of these books, I swear it’s my favorite. They literally just keep getting better and better. My standards for writing and love stories have also gotten higher. Ella Fox created a story that was so sweet, so beautiful, and it fit right in with the Maysons.

John is a cop who moved away from Chattanooga to escape the feelings he’s had for his neighbor for over two years. He wanted to take her out, treat her right, but his neighbor’s strict grandmother refuses John access to the woman who stole his heart after a brief meeting.

Mallory has lived with her strict grandmother since she was three years old, and has tried to adhere to her grandmother’s rules. She was always a good girl. She met John and felt an instant connection with him. She always wondered why he never asked her out, never realizing he tried to. A month after John left Chattanooga, Mallory’s grandmother passes away, leaving her on her own. She works her butt off before deciding to move to Nashville, where John is, and try to connect with him.

And they connect in an explosive way. I thought Brandon and Asher moved their women into their houses fast, but I seriously think John wins. And Nico wins his bet- you’ll get the reference if you go grab the book. (Nico has lots of bets…)  And I freaking LOVE that John has a cat with an attitude. My list of swoon-worthy alphas is seriously single dads, men with pets that they treat like prince/princesses, and guys with tattoos. (Can you guess who my favorite Mayson brother is?)

I loved and adored this sweet story. Mallory is the absolute cutest, and John is so freaking swoon-worthy. He is so adorable, and hot, and everything. I’m going to stop babbling now, and let you go pick up the book yourself, but SERIOUSLY it’s 5 stars.

reviewuntilrayne2.jpg

Loafers, you are one sneaky lawyer. Seriously. Nick seriously caught the book curse from the Mayson brothers, takes one look at gypsy traveler Rayne Summers and he’s gone. Predictable, staid, safe Nick Stevenson, who wears loafers to a bar, sees Rayne and learns about a darker, more possessive side of him that he’s never known before. Rayne Summers has been traveling around since she was little. Her parents home schooled her so they could travel, and left her to her own travels when she was eighteen.

Rayne truly believes she’s not meant to settle down, that she’s supposed to travel the world and find her own way. Nick thinks she’s just scared of being abandoned. Although Nick does want to travel and see the world he’s missed out on, he still likes being dependable. He’s earned his respect from the Mayson crew, except Asher still doesn’t like him obviously, and he’s learned how to deal with a woman who’s scared. You just push her until she agrees.

Alpha-Male-Syndrome. AMS.

Nick doesn’t look like he’d be suffering from AMS, but he is. And Rayne loves that he’s got hard edges to his loafer and glasses wearing side. He’s got layers (I will not make a Shrek reference-even if it kills me) and Rayne enjoys peeling them back, all the while trying to convince herself that she’s going to leave. She’s cute like that. Nick, being oh-so-smart, doesn’t comment on this. He quickly moves Rayne into his house, makes room for her in his life, and slyly makes her fall in love with him.

Like I said, he’s sneaky.

Their chemistry is off the charts, and the connection they have is amazing. I love how completely opposite they are, and how he’s alpha specifically for her. Basically I love this book. I love how sweet Nick is, in everything he does, but he’s also all possessive about Rayne, to the point others are shocked about his behavior. And I love how Rayne finally accepts them together. This book is sassy, sweet, and safe.

5 Stars Elle! I loved your contribution! Can’t wait to read more of Elle’s work!

Until Brandon by Natasha Madison Review

blurbuntil brandonRead about Brandon and Aurora story in this Kindle World Novella.

Kindle World of NYT Bestselling Author, Aurora Rose Reynolds. Happily Ever Alpha, a new Kindle World, will debut April 3, 2018.

Brandon
Anytime I heard someone speak of the boom, I laughed.
Surely only crazy people believe they can fall in love as soon as they lay eyes on someone.
I thought it was all in their heads until the moment she walked into my office asking for a job.
The instant my gaze locked with hers, I knew she was mine, and I would do anything in my power to protect her.

Aroura
I never thought I would be applying for a job at a strip club, yet there I was.
When the stunning owner offered me a job, I thought taking off my clothes would be the most nerve wracking thing.
When I walked in the next morning, I found out I wouldn’t be stripping, I’d be working side by side with him.
It doesn’t make sense for a man like him to desire a woman like me—a woman with baggage and a past.

One phone call changes everything and I’m forced to realize that until Brandon, I might have had it hard, but with him I will have it all.

review
untilbrandon1

Holy. Crap. That’s it. That’s my review. I’m obsessed with this series, but Brandon is definitely one of my favorites. This was my first Natasha Madison book but it won’t be my last! (She just released a single dad book so you KNOW I’m reading it ASAP!) Brandon definitely learned from his dad and the Mayson crew on how to treat a woman, but I think he may hold the record for fastest move in date. Brandon and Aurora move at light speed but in the best way!

Brandon is Mike’s, November’s Dad, step-son that we meet in the novella Second Chance Holiday. You would never be able to tell he isn’t Mike’s blood though. And nowhere in the book does he say “step-dad” (though there is some background as to how Mike became Brandon’s father) which I love.

Aurora’s parents died in a car crash, leaving her to raise her teenage sister by herself. Due to trouble Cassie got herself into, Aurora tries to work at the club as a dancer, but meets Brandon instead. (Like Brandon was gonna let her work there after seeing her. Pffffft). From the moment they meet, Aurora gets the “Brandon fog” though she doesn’t use those terms. He moves so fast, she’s left spinning in circles trying to keep up.

Plus, Brandon gets some help from Cassie.

I LOVED this book so much! Natasha really captured the essence of the Mayson crew, even bringing in Kenton for a sneaky appearance, and made it so effortless falling in love with these three. And she gives us double epilogues which basically means I love her forever. Ugh, I’m sleep deprived and crying because I loved this story so much. It was sweet, fast, and almost like a single mom book, since Aurora is raising Cassie, though they have a true sister relationship.

And Brandon gives Cass the same treatment he got from Mike: so much love but with a stern hand. I’m surprised she didn’t have to sign a contract *wink wink* (Please read this so I don’t look like such a weirdo writing that reference. Thanks). Ok 5 stars and ice cream!

untilsunrise2.jpg

Not going to lie, even a little bit. I had another book I wanted to read today, because I’ve been waiting months for it to come out… and then the Happily Ever Alpha crew released a day early and I dropped everything to start reading… It’s 3AM and I’m up reading!

When I first heard this story was going to be titled Until Sunrise, I really didn’t get it. Most titles in this crossover series are pretty obvious- not this one. Once I got into it, I knew why it was. And I FREAKING LOVE IT! Luka has a dirty, foul mouth that goes well with his previous player ways (though he wasn’t that much of a player), and Michelle has some serious issues with men and has a crazy case of RBF. Together, sunrise means something special.

Though I commend them on their dedication to sunrise, I’d stab someone who wanted to meet at sunrise. I think I could give Ashlyn or Chelle a run for their money on morning grumpiness.

Michelle isn’t looking for her boom, in fact she doesn’t even believe in it. She’s just looking for a guy to fill some of the loneliness she feels. Luka takes one look at her and knows shes the One for him. His father fell in love with his mother in a split second, and told Luka the story (which is super cute by the way and absolutely amazing) so when Luka saw Michelle, he knew. He wasn’t afraid, but excited about the fact he found the love of his life. Chelle was a little less excited about the feelings she felt.

And Luka comes off as crazy, and I love the homicidal tendencies Chelle tends to have towards him. I totally get it. How Michelle talks her self off the ledge, many times, is absolutely fantastic.

I smiled through the entire reading of this book. Luka’s nickname for Michelle is so sweet, and his over the top alpha is awesome. He tries understanding Michelle, giving her the support she needs, but he also doesn’t back off. And Michelle gives it right back to him when he’s being too much (yes feminism!)

All the drama in this book comes from Chelle and her fear of being hurt by Luka. While I would have liked a little less craziness from her, I still loved this book.

Thank you Sarah!!!

until leo2

Guys, I’m a big blubbering mess right now. Until Leo is part of the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle Worlds Crossover, along with 15 other authors. When I heard Leo was going to get a story I was jumping up and down, literally. From the moment Aurora Rose Reynolds originally had him freaking out about his cheating ex, I’ve wanted his story. And now I have it and I’m never giving it back. I’ve said it once, and I’ll keep repeating it because it’s true: single parent books get me. Every. Single. Time. This wasn’t my first Rochelle Paige book (it was my second-still writing the review for her Blythe College series) but I know for sure, it will not be my last.

Leo was introduced in the Until series in Nico’s book, and this is his story. He is a cop who meets Carrie at a daddy-daughter class to help teach father’s how to do their daughter’s hair. Carrie is the teacher for the class, and the minute Leo sees her, he believes in the boom. Until then, he had always thought the Mayson’s were full of it when they talked about it. Carrie immediately falls in love with both Leo and Lynn (who’s ovaries don’t explode when they see hot guys with kids? I mean seriously.)

They move fast, and he takes a few pages from the Mayson brothers, but Carrie seems to move along with it just fine. Their love is fast, but so utterly amazing. I’m a blubbering mess because I am in absolute love with Leo and Carrie. And it’s even cuter because Carrie’s father met her step mother when her step mother taught her father how to do Carrie’s hair. I’m sure there’s a literary term for this somewhere, but I’m sleep deprived since I stayed up all night to read this book.

I absolutely devoured this, and I’m giving it 5 bright, shining stars because it deserves it. And there’s only one epilogue (can I petition for another one?) but it made my heart so happy to read. Carrie’s love for Lynn and Leo is so pure and amazing, and Leo loves Carrie HARD. And he goes so alpha so quickly, I got goosebumps. God, I love this book.

This book, and the rest in the series, release April 3rd… TOMORROW SO GET YOUR KINDLES READY!

review
finderskeepers2

Ok, I’m so going to contradict myself here. Remember my post about things I hated reading about? One of those things was abuse… Well, I just read this book that contains non-consensual situations, and freely states what it is, but I still loved it. I think one of the things I liked was that the author didn’t gloss over it, or say it was something else. Jensen is a bad guy, who thinks of Charlotte as a possession to do what he pleases. However, I was sucked into this book from the prologue, and I couldn’t stop reading. At all. I need to remember to read warnings better… I still would have read this book though. (I think we all have exceptions to our rules… except cheating!)

ANYWAYS

This is the story of Charlotte Benson, pixie, a thief who makes a rookie mistake and is captured by Jensen Holm, a criminal and a collector. He collects beautiful things, and when he catches Charlotte trying to steal something from him, he decides to collect her too. He’s not used to women not wanting him. And he’s not used to being so possessive over one woman.

Poor criminal is still learning…

Jensen slowly comes to terms with his feelings for Charlotte, including the *spoiler* regret he feels over how he treated her in the beginning. I also like the fact that he knows what he did to her, and how it was wrong, and he tries to make up for it, in his Jensen way. And Charlotte has a sense of humor despite what she’s going through at the hands of Jensen. Neither Jensen, Charlotte, nor the author make light of a non-consensual situation. It is not a joke. But it is a part of the world Jensen and Charlotte are apart of so it was in the book.

This is the story of Jensen finding his humanity and Charlotte coming to love his humanity, and his darkness.

This novel is extremely dark. Seriously dark. It has trigger warnings all over the freaking place. Definitely one of the darkest I’ve ever read. That may help me wrap my head around Jensen’s treatment of Charlotte in the beginning, and if not accept it, move on from it. I’m not Charlotte, though, so I really don’t have to accept it. This book also moves extremely fast. Jensen gets over his criminal-minded crap fast. They fall in love, fast. Jensen kills a lot of people-fast. I got the book in the morning, and finished it by the end of the day.

By the end of the book, my heart fell in love with the characters BJ Bentley created, and I fell in love with this book. It was so good. Their love is darkness. Their love is criminal. This book is not going to be fore everybody, but if you can make it past the super ugliness it gets so much better! So…

Can I have the next book?

P.S. DOUBLE EPILOGUES!! (We all know how much I love those…)
