Flashback Friday: Mustang Wild (Wild, #1) by Stacey Kayne

What it’s about
With the deed to her land and a kid brother to protect, mustanger Skylar Daines shouldn't have tangled with the likes of Tucker Morgan. But his stolen kiss scatters her senses and, quicker than a whirling dust devil, they're wed! To her relief, Tucker's keen to fix the marital slipup--and then he tells her the deed she holds belongs to him, and him alone. Maybe she shouldn't rush to have their marriage annulled. No man, no matter how good-looking, is going to swindle Skylar out of the one thing she yearns for most--a home.

Crista says:
5 Stars!! I was hooked on this book by the end of the first chapter, and it stayed with me (literally on my person) until I finished it! 

This is a story about a proud, capable, talented woman who's femininity has been hidden and discouraged by her father for as long as she can remember. Skylar was a breath of fresh air, and the way that she proved herself to be loyal and steadfast to her younger brother had me cheering for her from the very beginning of this book. Tucker was so much fun! The way he shows Skylar he loves her made for many "ahhhh" moments. 

This book has it all. I was laughing one minute, choked up the next, and as the bullets were flying was hanging on to my seat for dear life. This is the way westerns were meant to be and I can't wait for the second in the series.

Karla says:
5 Stars! Just an old-fashioned wonderful romance. Not a lot of steam, but very sensual and passionate, great couple chemistry! 

Skylar is a strong women, determined to claim what is rightfully hers, and wants to build a future for herself, and her younger brother Garrett. They meet up with the Morgan twins, Tucker and Chance, real men; scrumptious, strong, protective, just what I like in my heroes. All four of them are part of the story, but the romance centers around Skylar and Tucker. The attraction between them builds, and he woos her with words and kindness. He's a real romantic, so sweet and such a charmer. Skylar and Tucker were a match made in cowboy heaven! 

I really enjoyed the interaction between all the characters, and how the brothers formed an attachment to Garrett and treated him like he was one of their own. You could feel the four of them growing into a family long before they realize that's what they had become. 

Very well written with great dialogue, some anxious moments, lots of romance, and our hero, Tucker, coming to the rescue in a big screen moment. The way he takes care of Skylar will bring tears to your eyes. SWOON! 

Mustang Wild is a truly enjoyable read that you will have a hard time putting down!

Never Let You Go (A Modern Fairytale) by Katy Regnery

What it’s about
In this modern retelling of Hansel and Gretel, thirteen-year-old foster children Griselda and Holden escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity, and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot. Tragically, one of them makes it to safety, but the other is left behind.

Ten years later, Griselda’s boyfriend drags her to a fight club grudge match, and her world is turned upside down when she watches Holden step into the ring.

Though the connection between them is fierce, bitter regret, simmering rage, and a tangle of physical and emotional scars lie between them, just as dangerous as the white water of the Shenandoah.

Never Let You Go is a story of fear and hope, defeat and survival, and two people—once profoundly broken—who discover that love is the only thing that can make them whole again.

Crista’s Review

4 stars! Never Let You Go by Katy Regnery is another brilliant addition to this clever series that modernizes classic beloved fairytales. 

This book is a modern look at the tale of Hansel and Gretel, and henceforth deals with kidnapping, child abuse (not sexual), and significant neglect. It was a very difficult story to read, but the love story is one of such endurance and commitment that it was worth the emotionally difficult read.

Never Let You Go tells the story of Holden and Griselda, two children living together in a foster home. At the tender age of 10, they are abducted, held against their will, and forced to endure verbal assaults, physical abuse, and hard labor at the hands of a psychotic religious zealot. The story opens as the children, now 13, are executing a brave escape attempt. Unfortunately, they are separated and Griselda escapes while Holden is captured once again by their tormentor.

The love and commitment that these two children have for one another is astounding. For children who have never had a true family, they become a family of two and vow to stick together no matter what. When they are separated, the loss is so profound that their hearts are forever broken.

Fast-forward 10 years and the stage is set for an unbelievable chance reunion for these childhood friends and destined lovers. When Griselda and her abusive boyfriend attend a bar fight, she has no idea that Holden (now a hardened and rage-filled fighter) is one of the fight participants.

The chemistry between Holden and Griselda have little to do with attraction (although there is lots of that), and everything to do with the commitment they made to one another when they were 10 years old. It’s as if when they are reunited, their broken hearts are mended and the world in which they live is put back into alignment. The reunion of Griselda and Holden and the time they spend together in the remote cabin are the most memorable parts of this book.

Unfortunately, their reunion is not an entire happily-ever-after. Both Holden and Griselda are in destructive relationships with other people at the time of their reunion. Many obstacles must be overcome, and unfortunately those obstacles proved to be a bit too much for me. It’s as if everything that could possibly go wrong does, and their happiness is delayed over and over again. It is for this reason alone that I knocked off one star.

Besides that one complaint, this book was simply amazing. I loved these characters and the romantic in me stood up and cheered when they FINALLY get their fabulous ending. I love how this author leaves this couple at the end of the book, even though it’s a bit of an over the top fairy tale ending. 

However, for fans of romance, the ending is a sure pleaser and one that few readers will have complaints about. This is a highly recommended read!

An Obsession with Vengeance (Wanted Men #3) by Nancy Haviland

What it’s about

Maksim Kirov is a mobster who gets what he wants, both at his posh gentleman’s club in Hell’s Kitchen and in the bedroom. Sexy, dangerous, and obsessed with control, he’s risen through the ranks to become a highly respected leader in the tight-knit Tarasov crime syndicate. He rules with an iron fist…until he meets Sydney Martin.

The Australian-born Sydney is determined to refuse Maks’s advances, despite their electrifying chemistry. The owner of a neighboring nightclub, Sydney rules her own domain. But when a deal with a Mexican drug cartel goes terribly wrong, she has no choice but to turn to Maksim and the Tarasov organization for protection. Could giving in to their intense attraction be what saves both Maks and Sydney? Or will their all-consuming passion—and her shocking secret—destroy their lives?

In the hot and scandalous third installment of the Wanted Men series, lust and loyalty clash in New York’s mob underworld.

Release Date: 7/21

Dorsey’s Review

5 Tortured Hero Stars! I am completely hooked on this series and these characters!! 

I've been anxiously awaiting Maks' story, and I totally loved it!! 

Maks is a highly respected leader in the Tarasove Crime Syndicate. He's also brooding, sensual, and beautiful. I completely loved Maks and his back story, all that he endured as a boy at the hands of his abusive father broke my heart and it hurt for him. Where women, those he considers family, and children are concerned, he is truly a gentleman. But, he's also brutal, as in BRUTAL, when he needs to be. The poor guy still feels guilty for his part in hurting a woman he's grown to care a great deal about, due to his actions in The Salvation of Vengeance. I loved that he felt deeply about what happened, it showed he has a conscience, real emotions and feelings.

Maks and Sydney met in The Salvation of Vengeance, and he was instantly drawn to the beautiful, classy, yet aloof club owner. He has been ruthlessly pursuing her every chance he gets, even as she seems to have zero interest. Nevertheless, Maks takes every opportunity to engage in verbal sparring matches. Sydney IS attracted to Maks, but she has other priorities, mainly her twelve year old son, Andrew, that Maks doesn't know about....not to mention she's weary of his well deserved “manwhore” reputation.

When a secret Sydney has been keeping blows up in her face and brings danger to her and her beloved son Andrew, she has no choice but to seek protection from Maks. With the backing of his organization and his mentor Russian Crime Boss, Vasily, Maks and Sydney create charade to keep her safe. While the charade brings Sydney and Maks closer, and seems to be working as it should, another enemy, a much deadlier unknown enemy, is stalking Sydney. Lots of action! 

Maks and Sydney were great together, and she and Andrew were just what he needed, but never realized he did. Maks is just so sexy, the perfect tortured hero, and Sydney is a woman strong enough to stand beside him. I absolutely loved this story, and can't wait for more Wanted Men!!!!

An officer wearing a black slicker leaned out to buzz the front gate as rain fell in blinding waves.
I shot Frost a panicked glance. “I swear I only called for an ambulance.”
“Dearborne PD,” a voice boomed over the intercom. “Open up.”
Frost hung his head. A wry smile curved his lips. “Officer Osborn. What an unpleasant surprise.”
“You know him?”
“Indeed.” Resolve hardened his face. He snagged a remote from one of the tables, pointed the thing toward a console on the opposite wall. A buzzer sounded and the outside gate slid open. “I’ll handle this.”
“But you’re not—”
“Change your robe,” he said. “You’re covered in blood.”
Frost chucked the remote aside and stepped into a walk-in closet. Moments later, he emerged shoving his arms into a sleek black trench coat. He started for the hallway and had almost disappeared entirely, but he paused. Only his gloved hand—the one gripping the wall’s edge was visible. He leaned over so his head and shoulders were peeking from behind the wall, and shot one last meaningful look in my direction. The mysterious apology again. Then he came back over to me, and gently framed my face with both gloved hands. His pleading eyes were warm and hypnotically blue as his thumb stroked my cheeks.
“You will stay, Miss Reed.”
Who could think when he had me on smolder? “I…ah…”
“Promise me.”
Damn it. “Um, okay.”
Triumph radiated on his face once he stepped away and disappeared down the hallway.
I started wearing the carpet out the moment he hit the stairs and the more I paced, the louder my conscience screamed. No question about it. I was going straight to hell.
Karla's Review

4.5 Stars! A unique, complex, absorbing read! 

Tanya Holmes has quite the imagination, I can’t recall reading anything quite like The Darkest Frost and it was a refreshing…a real page turner! This is going to be a nice treat for fans of the paranormal genre, it certainly was for me! 

First few pages in, I wondered where the heck this story was headed, few more after that it had me raising my eyebrows, not in a bad way, more like…wow, this is really good! I’m not even going to get into the plot , because it’s necessary for the reader to find their own way through it. The story is told from multiple points-of-view, and in the case of Denieve, in first person, which can be somewhat confusing initially, but then it all falls into place. I found it to be a well-constructed story that grabbed hold and didn’t let go!

Denieve Knight is a delightful character; headstrong, sympathetic and funny, a character I could see myself wanting more books constructed around. Braeden Frost might be dubbed “Dr. Death”, but in my book he’s “Dr. Hot”…melted me right into a puddle of goo! He’s brooding, distant, and in the eyes of the public is an alleged murderer, yet, there is something about him that that makes him vulnerable and you can’t help but feel sorry for him and fall hopelessly in love with him. 

The chemistry between Denieve and Braeden is sizzling, and the eventual sexual intimacy is smokin’ hot! The author’s unique prose makes it some of the most sensual and passionate hanky panky I’ve ever read…you feel it all over…right down to your toes! The sex doesn’t consume the story, but when the two of them go at it…PHEW!

It’s no easy task to write a story with a darker theme with an underlying tone of humor that blends well together, but the author manages to do just that. It’s not over the top comedy, but through some of the character’s self-assessments, most particularly Denieve, the wit definitely comes through. I found myself chuckling throughout the book as her mind wandered with random thoughts, and when she reprimanded herself for some of her actions. 

I’m not a fan of cliff-hangers, but it’s not uncommon in this particular genre for the overall arc of the story to continue from book to book. You won’t get an HEA at the end of The Darkest Frost, but I wasn’t bothered with how it wrapped up, I’m just dying for more! While not a complete story, it was still a satisfying one, and in all fairness to the author, she does warn readers that the story will continue in the next installment. 

If you’re a fan of paranormal books where humor blends together with the serious, then this is the book for you. She’s not quite there, but close, and if Tanya Holmes can keep up the momentum, she could give some of the top authors in this genre a run for the money. I’m certainly hoping this is a series and genre she will continue to explore after the conclusion of The Darkest Frost!

**I don't buy a book based on the cover...okay sometimes I do, but in this case I wanted to give the cover illustrator a shout out...whoever you are, great depiction on the overall feel of the story and Dr. Braeden Frost!**

Recommended Freebie ~ Limited Time Offer: Falling for Nick by Joleen James

What it’s about
It’s taken Clea Rose ten years to get over the one night she spent with bad boy Nick Lombard—a night of teenage passion that produced her son, and sent Nick to prison for murder. Now, with her life finally back on track, Clea’s about to marry a wonderful man and leave town for a promising career in New York. The last thing she expects is Nick’s return and the intense feelings he stirs within her.

Sent to prison for a murder he didn’t commit, Nick Lombard comes home to the tiny town of Port Bliss to attend his mother’s funeral, but he doesn’t count on running into Clea. Seeing her reminds him of everything he’s tried to forget, and everything he longs to remember. When Nick learns Clea is about to marry the man who sent Nick to prison, he knows he must stay and fight for the family he was forced to leave behind.

Against all odds, Nick and Clea must find their way back to the summer they were young lovers on the beach in Port Bliss, realizing that together their love is strong, strong enough to survive anything, even the web of lies that separated them ten years ago.

 Karla’s Review

3.5 Stars!! I fell for Nick, but in some respects the story fell flat!

For the most part, this was a pretty good read with characters and a plot that I was invested in. Overall it was not unique, but had enough twists, turns, angst, and heart-ache that it held my interest. The writing was very simplistic, and I think if the author had ramped it up a bit, it would have set it apart from other books with this similar theme. She has potential, that much is clear. However, I will say that the author shocked me with a revelation concerning Nick, and I had no idea it was coming. I love when that happens!! Good job Joleen James!!

Considering the journey that the reader goes on with these characters, an epilogue would have wrapped the book up nicely, and pushed this to a 4 star read. It ended a little too abruptly for me, and when you have issues as these people did, I think it's only fair to the reader to give them more in the way of an HEA. Still, I would recommend this book, it's definitely worth taking a look into. 

This was enjoyable freebie from a new-to-me author and I will definitely be checking out her other books. 

Random thought here, I think this could be a brother's series, because Billy definitely piqued my interest and I think he would have a pretty good story to tell. Just my opinion...are listening Joleen James?!

A Lot Like Love (FBI/US Attorney #2) by Julie James

What it’s about

The FBI wants her cooperation. As the daughter of a billionaire and the owner of the city's top wine store, Jordan Rhodes is invited to the most exclusive parties in Chicago. But there's only one party the FBI wants to crash: the charity fundraiser of a famous restaurateur, who also happens to launder money for the mob. In exchange for her brother's release from prison, Jordan is going to be there—with a date supplied by the Bureau.

Agent McCall just wants her. As the top undercover agent in Chicago, Nick McCall has one rule: never get personal. This "date" with Jordan Rhodes is merely an assignment— one they're both determined to pull off even if they can't be together for five minutes before the sarcasm and sparks begin to fly. But when Nick's investigation is compromised, he and Jordan have no choice but to pretend they're a couple, and what starts out as a simple assignment begins to feel a lot like something more.

 Karla’s Review

5 Stars! Another engaging, smart, witty, sexy, fun book by this talented author!

What I like about Julie James' style of writing is the snappy dialogue, the strong female characters…and of course their sexy male counterparts. Jordan and Nick have terrific chemistry...combustible! Jordan’s a wine connoisseur with her own shop; Nick’s an FBI agent who knows one wine, Zinfandel. She samples wine the conventional way, swirling, swishing and spitting, he wants to pour and taste… in a most unconventional way. Very sexy and so much fun. 

Some of the characters from Something About You are along for the ride, but we also get to meet some terrific new characters, namely Kyle who looks to be the focus of her next book. I’m hoping that Wilkins, a man who really knows women… gets one of his own…a book and a woman, that is.

Amusing banter, sizzling sexual intimacy, a strong-willed heroine who stands on her own, a sexy alpha hero who wants her flat on her back, throw in a some suspense, and you've got yourself another first-rate read in this entertaining series!

What it’s about

Except her.

If pleasure is a game, play to win. 
After their mind-blowing encounter burns out of control, the lovers crave more. If they escape the deadly threats surrounding them, can Maksim overcome his past—to offer Cat his future? Only then will she tempt him with what he really wants: her, all tied up with a bow.

Dorsey’s  Review

5 Dios Mio Sexy Stars!

He's filthy rich, impossibly handsome, and simply irresistible. He's Russian Mafia Boss and a politician. Maksimilian (Maksim) Savastyan prefers his playthings tall, obedient, and blonde to fulfill his specific needs.....that is until the icy cold Russian meets his match in a disobedient young Latina, whose sexy little body tests his legendary restraint.

Cat is a 22 yr old student who cleans houses for the wealthy in Miami, and she was not always so desperate and poor. Cat actually comes from a good affluent family, but circumstances has her fleeing her home and now she's just trying to survive. It's time for her to move on (again) as soon as she gets enough money together....and she has to keep running, her life literally depends on it!!!

When a good friend, who happens to be a high class extremely expensive escort, can't keep a date, she talks Cat into taking her place. Cat accepts with much trepidation the one time only offer, because it's time to leave town and the money this "date" will provide will help her do that.

Maksim is definitely not a man to play with and the sweet young thing who just entered his world is nothing he is used too!! She not only definitely does not meet his strict "criteria" she actually has the gall to do the exact opposite of everything he tells her!!
"I knew I was fucked from the moment I first got close to you. He tightened his grip, I saw you had freckles on your nose and your eyes were the color of new pennies, and you smelled like pleasure itself."
What follows is a test of wills that will make you smile, and at times chuckle. You just know these two belong together, there are a lot of misunderstandings, lack of communication skills (especially Maksim), and both of them understandably have major trust issues. Nonetheless, you'll find yourself cheering this lost couple on!!!
"I'd never felt safer with a man...or cheaper. How could he be so tender, so praising? Then so cruel?"
I was so excited that Savastyan and Natalie, from The Professional, had cameos, and to see their story continue with their wedding. All in all, a great addition to the series, and I'm looking forward to getting Dimitri's book next....hopefully. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!!!

What it’s about
Cover by Jay Aheer

Can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

As the sole offspring of the Democratic United States president and his political operative wife, Trevor Moga was raised in an environment driven by the election cycle. During childhood, he fantasized about living in a made-for-television family, and as an adult, he rejected all things politics and built a highly successful career as far from his parents as possible.

Newly elected congressman Ford Hollingsworth is Republican royalty. The grandson of a revered governor and son of a respected senator, he was bred to value faith, family, and the goal of seeing a Hollingsworth in the White House.

When Trevor and Ford meet, sparks fly and a strong friendship is formed. But can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

Pre-order at: 

The voice was so quiet Trevor barely heard it over the running water. He flipped around, wiped droplets from his eyes, and blinked in surprise when he saw Ford standing outside the glass shower door.
“Is the invitation to stay still open or did I blow it?” Ford bit his upper lip and looked at Trevor from underneath his lashes.
A lightness filled Trevor and he couldn’t contain his smile. “You haven’t blown anything yet, but if you take off your clothes and get in here, I’m sure we can fix that.”
“Okay,” Ford said with a soft laugh.
Trevor quickly grabbed the soap and scrubbed up. He was rinsing off the suds when the door opened and Ford stepped inside.
“Glad you decided to trust me,” Trevor said.
“I’m not sure I do.” Ford shrugged. “But you made a good point about having enough ammunition already.” He gulped. “And I really wanted to stay.” He met Trevor’s gaze and whispered, “Tell me I’m not making a mistake.”
The vulnerability in that question, the desire to trust, tore at Trevor’s chest. He wrapped his arms around Ford and pressed his mouth to Ford’s ear. “You’re not making a mistake.”
