A cowboy can’t resist a damsel in distress

Brad Anderson, the bullwhip master, has guarded his heart ever since a certain redhead broke it. After attending the wedding of his best friend, Master Anderson decides to find his own happy ending. However, it seems Fate has different plans when he finds himself protecting a damsel in distress.

Will this cowboy at heart ever let down his guard long enough to allow true love to flow in? Find out what happens when love and loyalty meet Fate head on.

* A portion of the story Includes the short "Stud Poker" part of the retired anthology, One Night in Vegas. It is important part of Master Anderson's journey.

Who Doesn’t love a sexy cowboy? Now make that sexy cowboy a Master Dominant and give him expert skills with a bull whip and an amazing since of humor and I think we will all fall in love !!

I love that Red decided to tell this part of the Brie series from Master Anderson’s point of view. It was a great change and a chance to fill like we were getting a little closer with this sexy as heck Dom. We get to see what this wonderful man is thinking and feeling and start to realize that even sexy scary Dom’s have insecurities and hurt emotions. I think this book just made me fall a little more in love with one of my favorite Masters. I can’t wait to read the next installment from Tono’s POV !!

*Note – This series needs to be read in order to be able to follow the story line.

She falls madly in love with the romance of the city, enjoying the delights of its secret BDSM society. Brie is then transported to the wickedness of the isle, where Master will play out his own private fantasies…

Wow….. Red Phoenix did it again….. I should no before I even start a book in this series that my feet are going to be knocked right out from under me….. But oh what a good knock down it is.

In this book we get to travel along with Brie and Thane on their honeymoon and oh what a honeymoon it is. I mean this is one sexy D/s couple after all right ?!?! But once back home the real world intrudes and we are left wondering what will happen. Leave it to Red to have us pulling out our hair at the end of a book and waiting to jump right into the next one.

I absolutely love every single book in this series so far. But be warned you have to read this series in order. This way you can grow with the characters and fall in love with them and begin to look at them as family just like I have.

Holy Snikerdoodle this was a good book !!! I really don’t know where to start here was so much packed into this book. But it was fantastic. We get to see how much Brie and Thane have grown as a couple and boy is it a lot since their first meeting. In this book Brie travels all over the world helping her friends and having some sexy time to go along with it.  We get to go through some tough times with the couple too as they deal with issues from Thane’s past. There are even some times you will wonder if the couple will make it through.

This book had my emotions all over the place. I was jumping for joy, crying in despair, and wringing my hands in worry. But through it all the love of this couple was shining through. Red Phoenix took over my world while reading this one. I didn’t want to do anything but keep reading so I could see what would happen next. This was another fabulous book in the series !!!

Review for Fury by Jenika Snow

fury

SYNOPSIS:Fury took Angelina because of revenge, but the longer she’s with him the more he wants her. He never thought he would be the man to use a woman as leverage, but when that woman is the daughter of the notorious Sal Cardona, a man that hurt his MC, Fury will go to any length.

Angelina Cardona ran from her mafia family just a few months ago, but she’s never felt safe since then. When she wakes up after being drugged and taken from her home, she fears her father and his men have found her. But something dark rises inside of her when she sees the man that’s taken her is the Bleeding Mayhem President, Fury. She wants him, even if he won’t let her go, and even if he’s is just as dangerous as the mob.

Fury knows he’s in deep where it concerns Angelina, and he won’t let her walk away when it’s all said and done.

REVIEW:This is another fantastic story by Jenika Snow. This, not quite a short but not quite novel length, is about Fury, the president of Bleeding Mayhem  MC and Sal Cardona’s daughter, Angelina. What started out as an act of revenge turned into so much more for Fury and Angelina.  Off the charts chemistry!  SIZZLING!!!

Great story! Excellent, beautifully erotic bedroom scenes. It’s everything I’ve come to expect from this amazing author. I can’t wait to read more!

Review for Hard by Jenika Snow

hard__11878.1457487919.300.450

 

SYNOPSIS: Corbin has been called many things: cocky, dirty, a manwhore. And he never denied any of them. He likes women, all shapes and sizes. But the one girl he wants, the one he’s known for a decade, and the most genuine person he knows, is his sister’s friend. Being with her would cross a line.

In the past Izabella has watched Corbin go through women like they were flavors of ice cream. And despite that she still wants him, but compared to the women he goes after she’s as plain as they come.

But when she’s stranded at a bar, she finds herself seeking out Corbin’s help. Maybe it’s the liquid courage, but she’s not going to stop herself from being with him, not when he clearly wants her, as well.

The only problem is what will happen once morning comes?

REVIEW: I have recently been introduced to the books written by this author and I’m hooked. Jenika Snow writes amazing steamy, sexy, complete short stories. This book is about Izabella Heart and Corbin Grant, friends since they were 15 years old. Both want each other but she thought he always wanted the women with perfect bodies, which she thought she didn’t have. Since he discovered his feelings for Isabella, Corbin was afraid to ruin their longtime friendship. Maybe fate has other ideas?

Characters are well developed and the story line was smooth and complete. The sheets were on fire! I can’t wait to read more from this fantastic author.

Review for Tanks Property by Jenika Snow

tanksproperty__24775.1458767351.300.450
SYNOPSIS: Tank loved Bunny, but she ran from what they could’ve had. Now, years later, she’s still the only woman that holds a spot in his heart. A member of The Brothers of Menace MC means he’s had to move on and focus on the future. But when he finds out Bunny and his sister, Lila, may be in trouble, he’ll go to any lengths to make sure they’re safe. 

Bunny’s abused past made her leave the only man she’s ever loved. But everything since then has been void of life, and she knows it’s because she doesn’t have Tank. He’s the only one that’s ever made her feel like she deserves more. 

But when they’re finally together will the past keep them apart? With a psycho after them, Tank knows Bunny is the only woman that was meant to be his. That means he’ll walk through hell if he has to in order to make her his.

REVIEW: Tank is newly patched with The Brothers of Menace. His sister Lila shows up, unexpectedly, with a baby. She’s running from her abusive ex-boyfriend, Spike, from another MC. Lila is also afraid Spike will go after her friend Bunny. Bunny and Tank had a thing years ago and she broke his heart. He’s still upset at the way she left but still loves her and will do anything to protect her and his family.
One thing a reader needs to remember while reading MC Romance is that these men are not law-abiding citizens. They may love their women and their families but they do what they have to to stay living the life. This Book has a great story line and great characters. SIZZLING! Another fantastic short to add to a growing list of five star reviews.

Review for Takin’ the Reins by Jenika Snow

takinthereins__97667.1459907358.300.450
SYNOPSIS: Jace Sterling works hard and plays harder, especially where it concerns the opposite sex. Women are his weakness, and he doesn’t try to express self-control when it comes to getting what he wants. But then he sees Lexi, a woman much younger than he is, and she has his full attention. He knows he just has to have her. 

Lexi has wanted Jace since she was younger, but he’s over a decade older than she is and has never given her a second glance. When she returns to town after college and runs into the Sterling brother, the feelings she thought she’d buried come rushing back. 

When a minor car accident puts Jace and Lexi back into each other’s lives, Jace knows he won’t walk away again, not when Lexi is the first woman to spark more than arousal in him. Everything he thought he knew about himself gets turned upside down where it concerns Lexi. 

Can one young woman tame a notorious Sterling brother? 

REVIEW: Let me start out with how HOT this short is! Make sure you bring your fan because Jace Sterling can dirty talk with the best of them. Jace is one of three Sterling brothers. They work hard and play harder but having watched older brother Travis find “the one” Jace was getting lonely. When he sees Lexi Baxter at the bar, after not seeing her for years, he wants her…BAD! 

Jason and Lexi are steaming up the pages of this book. Another great short by Jenika Snow. This author is a master at pulling you in and telling you a story with an epilogue that makes it all complete. I can’t wait to read more.

Review for Surfacing by Daniel Stephens

surfacing

SYNOPSIS: Used to luxurious, high-profile city life, Chris’s world is shattered when tragedy takes his husband and young son. Seeking a life free from pain, Chris returns to his grandfather’s cabin on the shores of Wolf Thorn Lake, Maine. When Chris meets Jake, the earthy young man who resides across the lake, Chris faces his most challenging decision yet. Does he continue his life alone, or does he risk his heart and the potential of love he sees illuminated in Jake’s warm eyes? A young man running from pain, a rural free spirit with the ability to heal, and a wolf who haunts the shore-line of Wolf Thorn Lake illustrate the endurance of the human heart, the capacity to learn how to love again, and the heart’s ability to restore even the most wounded of men.

REVIEW:  I really liked this story. It is about a man who has lost his partner and child at the same time and he is trying to find himself again. He can’t do it in the home they built together so he goes to his grandfather’s cabin. He meets the people of the town and they all are so happy to have him there. They welcome him like family. One in particular has an eye for him, Jake. Jake is a great guy but pushes too soon and Chris runs back to the city fighting his feelings for Jake.

Jake is lost without him and hopes that Chris will figure out what he wants and come back to him.

This is a great story about love, loss and a second chance of love. It shows us how hard a loss can be and how someone has to have the strength to pull them back together. The author did a great job of showing the inner turmoil the main character was going through. He wanted to let Jake into his life but he still loved his husband and child so much.

I highly recommend this story.

Review for Third Strikes a Charm (The Lobster Cove Series) by Nicci Carrera

thirdstrikesacharm.jpb

SYNOPSIS:  Super student Cara Cruz made it all the way through her prestigious MBA program only to choke on the last final. Ordered by her advisor to take the summer off and clear her head, she’s home in Lobster Cove for some fun before retaking the exam. If she fails a second time, she will lose her dream job offer in Chicago. Meanwhile her best friend happens to be her ex-boyfriend’s mom, which means close contact with the man who broke her heart. Twice. This time she’ll protect her heart no matter the cost.

Ex-major-league baseball pitcher Jason Ward blew his money, his elbow, and his love life. Now at home taking care of his mom and working on a new life plan, he wants Cara back, but he already struck out, didn’t he? Maybe not, and now his mission is to win her back without telling her the truth about why he really came home.

Winning at love will be the only play that counts.

REVIEW:  Cara returns to Lobster Cove in the hopes of having some fun and relaxing before she has to redo her last exam for her MBA. She is happy to be able to see her best friend, Francie who happens to be her ex-boyfriend Jason’s mom. So of course they will see each other. You can tell from the start that they are both still in love with each other but having had already 2 strikes against them they are very leery to see if the title is true – Third Strikes a Charm.

When Cara discovers her true passion is helping people in a home for elderly people she decides to change her presentation for her final exam. She organizes a group outing for the home in Lobster Cove and everyone that goes has an enjoyable time. She wants to give them some semblance of a real life.

Jason wants to start dating Cara again but with her around to see his mom he doesn’t know how to start. Cara’s mom suggests she make herself scarce so Jason can court her.  He gets up the nerve to ask her out on a date and it goes well.

Unfortunately time is against them, because Cara is soon called by her professor to retake her exam sooner so she can go to work in Chicago ahead of schedule. She is disappointed to have to leave so soon. Jason thought he had all summer to date her and work on their relationship.

Cara presents her idea of the new and improved home for elderly people and her professor says it is great. She passes the last exam with flying colors. She wants to make it a reality. She has no money though. Jason has become a great cook and wants to help her out.

They put their heads together and try to see if they could do this together. Family and friends pitch in and it seems her dream is more than a dream. She will have a place for her aunt to be and also residents of Lobster Cove’s loved ones can move there and be taken care of.

This is another edition to the Lobster Cove series and I loved it just as much as the others I have read.  Cara and Jason have loved each other all along but things kept getting in their way. When she returns home she realizes Jason hasn’t moved on and neither has she. Although they both have secrets they need to share with each other you know that they will have to come clean if their relationship is to work.

I highly recommend this book.

Review for The Backdoor Billionaire’s Bride by Roz Lee (Billionaire’s Brides Book 1)

Backdoorbride1

 

SYNOPSIS:  Ford Adams had led a charmed life, but if he doesn’t figure out how to make the equivalent of a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, and sell a boat-load of them, he and his mother might find themselves flipping burgers. Determined not to let that happen, he’ll need all the help he can get–especially from his sexy new business partner. If he can get her to take a chance on his crazy new idea, then maybe he can convince her to take a chance on him.

Becky Jean Parker’s life has been anything but what she’d imagined it would be, but she’d been content until a recent turn of events once again left her no choice. Unless she wants to wallow in bankruptcy for the rest of her life, she’ll have to go along with her new business partner’s insane plan and pray he knows what he’s talking about. The only thing crazier than Ford’s plan to sell sex toys is her attraction to him. Typical of her life, she’d had no choice but to fall for the one man she can’t have.

REVIEW:  I loved the main characters from the beginning. Ford and Becky Jean had such chemistry but both fought their attraction. Becky Jean because she thought Ford was attached and gay with a partner name Ronnie. Ford because he knew he wanted to leave once the year was up getting the company ready to sell.

Ford had been gone from his hometown of Butte Plains, Texas for a long time. He took a stroll through town and noticed in disappointment most of the familiar stores were closed and boarded up. It was turning into a ghost town and Adams Manufacturing was the only thing holding the place together.

Becky Jean was always on edge with him because she was waiting for the day he would sell the factory and move back to New York, where he has a business with his best friend, Scott.

Ford is a designer that is what he is good at and Becky Jean is the marketing expert that he needs to put the factory back on the map. When he designs a new adult toy, they are both holding their breath and hoping it will be the miracle they are looking for. Little did they know how well it would do or what kind of demand they would have.

Ford got to know his employees in the time he was there and found that the employees could make whatever he put in front of them. He started to feel comfortable designing things he wanted to design and not for someone else like his firm he owned back.

This is a wonderful story that had me scratching my head and busting out laughing at Ford’s antics a few times. I loved the fight in Becky Jean to keep the factory running not only for herself but for the people of the small town. I loved the stubbornness of Ford. He didn’t want to admit that he loved designing his own products and then seeing them come to life. They were a powerful couple together, if they would just cross that line.

This unfortunately is an everyday occurrence and happens more than we all know. Companies are closing because work can be done cheaper somewhere else. I really enjoyed this first story in Roz Lee’s new series. I can’t wait to read more from her.

I highly recommend it.
