Abigail is a young 20 something who’s just about to start a new job. A beautiful party girl, she doesn’t expect to see an old friend when she steps out of a club. Not just any old friend, but her dad’s best friend Jerry. Abigail hasn’t seen Jerry since she was in high school, and she’s surprised…because now that she’s old enough, she’s having new thoughts about him.

Jerry, who’s going through a divorce, and is about to turn 50 wasn’t expecting to bump into Abigail. Abigail is intrigued by Jerry, and happy that he’s back in town. But Jerry is too much of a golden boy to try anything with his best friend’s daughter, even if she is the right age.

Just how far does Abigail go to get what she wants? Can Jerry keep his calm around Abigail, or will he give into her charm?

This is Romance with My Dad’s Best Friend, an erotic short that explores a realistic look at taboo relationships and sexual encounters. This page turner will curl your toes and bite your lip with the steamy tension, and will certainly satisfy you until the very end.


A quick read about a brief encountered taboo (somewhat…) affair about Abby a twenty something woman and her dad’s best friend since college.

Like I said slightly taboo, but overall not a bad just a quick kinky fantasy kind of read that could be read rather quickly. The ending was open ended and ok that seemed to be opened ended slightly… Like each of the main characters had more to do and say but separately in a different story or may be more of their own…

$25 Gift Card Giveaway, Excerpt and Review of Cheaters Anonymous by Lacey Silks



We’re both addicted to sex, just not with each other.

High school friends – nothing more.

That was our promise to each other, because let’s face it, infidelity spreads like a disease.

Everybody cheats.


And it’s easier to remain friends than hurt the only person you ever cared about – or so we thought.






Excerpt: Chapter 1

“What the hell is that?” The new patient in the ER had an erection almost the size of a man’s arm. It tented the sheet covering him, and I thanked my lucky stars that I wasn’t on the front lines in the triage area. I could still hear the giggles from behind a curtain.

“This one’s yours, Jules. I’m not touching that with a ten-foot pole.” My co-worker and best friend’s humor didn’t escape me. The two of us were working the graveyard shift, and from the look of it, Chris was not going to help. In fact, bringing all the nurses’ attention to the patient may have only hindered any progress. Fortunately, she decided to leave. “I’m pretty sure I have a patient who needs an enema. I think I’d rather work that end than the one you’ll be working on.”

I highly doubted that. Chris worked the male nurses better than strippers did metal poles.

“Everybody out!” I pointed my finger to the door, but no one moved. Their heads were peeking one over another, trying to catch a glimpse of the patient’s prominent injury. My mind was already running amok as I wondered what the heck was underneath that sheet. “This is not Grey’s Anatomy, people, so unless you’re helping I don’t want to see you.”

They finally scattered back to their duties. On Saturday nights, or should I say Sunday mornings, we usually got the weekend party leftovers, and most of our patients were passed out drunk, stoned, or heavily medicated. Comprehension in any of those states was minimal. This guy on the bed in front of me was totally out. His face was covered in paint – green, red, yellow, blue, you name it and it was there. What kind of a party had he gone to?

I peeled back the sheets with hesitation. The rest of his body was painted in the same mix of colors as his face. My gaze rested over his hip, where underneath the smeared paint I could make out the black lines of a tattoo, though its shape remained mysterious. I wondered whether the patient had any clothes on when he came in. I sighed and removed the sheet down to his knees. The nurse beside me had her mouth completely open and was focused on what first appeared to be a cannon – a huge cannon made of a cylinder that imprisoned the patient’s enlarged penis.

“Holy crap!” I said under my breath. How do you get your cock stuck in a pump?





This is the 6 years later after the story of Scar AKA Nick and Julie’s story in When Things Go Wrong.
There is more than one type of addiction…
“Cheaters Anonymous” is another word for the addiction to…
What happens when life gives you a second (ok this should be labeled as a third) chance at something…
“Who are you, and what have you done with Scar?”
“I am a man who’s made too many mistakes and has been given a chance to correct one of them. Please don’t rob me of that chance?”
But Julie has a problem… An addiction to … One that has caused her to question things (relationships) in her life.
And Scar has a commitment issue or does he?
“This will be difficult for both of us. You’re the last person I want to hurt Jules and I need to make sure that I commit to this with every last fiber of my being. I want to be everything you ever imagined a good man to be and since I’ve never been one it makes it hard to gauge what it takes. I want to give you all that I have and all that I am I just don’t know how. At this moment I need to make changes in my life to continue this. And their big ones. And if I’m not successful I may lose you before I even have you.”
But they must trust each other.
“My track record with relationships isn’t exactly perfect.”
Will they get their HEA?
Well written, enjoyable and captivating read that will have you turning pages to see how the story unfolds.
The only downside is that some sections it seems like it was just little too drawn out to find a resolution and conclusion to what will happen next…
The storyline was sometimes unpredictable as well as predictable…

Review of My Stepbrother: The Dom by Arabella Quinn

25036377My Stepbrother: The Dom

by Arabella Quinn

**A Stand-Alone Full Length Stepbrother Romance with an HEA**

I’d never been to a sex club before. Hell, before I saw the new erotic romance movie, I didn’t even know what BDSM was. I was that naïve.

Mix together a few shots of alcohol, my dangerously adventurous girlfriend and a dose of curiosity, and you had the recipe for a very crazy night.

That’s how I ended up inside the sex club.

How did I end up being schooled in the arts of BDSM by my sinfully sexy stepbrother?

Now that was just pure madness.



This is partly taboo but also different….

Ava’s friend has dragged her off to Club Sanctuary for an experience that she wasn’t sure what she was getting into…

Afraid at first but intrigued by the idea… After that first visit that she came back three more times…Cloaked in a mask…

What Ava didn’t know was that her stepbrother, who was also wearing a mask was the one that was Master Royce at the Sanctuary …

At home during the holiday, Ava discovers that Master Royce was actually her stepbrother Cole…

They decide to play it off and not going after what they emotionally want and need… That is until a family vacation that …

What will happen when Ava’s father walks in on them and …

(The rest of this review may be a spoiler but it must be stated since like I have stated in the above that this slightly taboo but different )

Overall this was different where Cole’s mother see something is that is going on and finds out that Ava’s father is being rather vindictive in causing problems in the end ultimately both of Cole’s and Ava’s father ….

Interesting and good to point but it may or may not be something for everyone… The story is told in both POVs for well rounded story…

Review of Dirty Little Secrets Series by Alex Elliott

alex Elliott


What’s your dirty little secret?

For Xavia Kennedy it was freedom. Escape from a pastel painted life ruled by an American dynasty and headed by a formidable foe. One wanted to escape. Her family. X has a plan. Get serious and get the hell out of Bean Town. Away from the pretty people and boring as hell lives.

Then she met him. Smooth talking and gorgeous. All it took was a dim hall.

He called their hook-up a mistake.

No problem. She walked away without a name, just an impression. That was the hottest sex she’d had minus the actual sex. After one Nantucket party too many, Xavia ends up cutting bait and heading to D.C. She hops aboard the crazy train as the newest intern to Bennett Stone.

Or Senator Stone as he’s known on the Hill. He’s more than Cosmo’s sexiest congressman. He’s complicated. A mystery.

Ben doesn’t date. He’s got his own dirty secrets.

But where X is concerned, there’s one he’s willing to share.

If she agrees to his terms.

In his bed, it’s way. All she needs to do is learn to stop arguing.

Impossible when she finds out the connection they share runs too deep to put aside, and she begins to fear the secret under the secret that’s left unsaid.

Goodreads :


There a bunch of parts where I glanced over reading it since it contained in my opinion a lot of political hullabaloo… Once may twice is fine but there was bunch of it in this story…

Different & interesting with Dual POVs & Steamy heated scene …heavy on the BDSM aspect.

Included a mix of expected and unexpected twists…ending will have the reader wanting more but I wouldn’t call it a cliffhanger….

Overall an ok story that may not be for everyone.

I wasn’t thrilled with the first book and this one wasn’t any better… The dark sadistic erotic isn’t something that I get into reading (that made it a challenge…) X doesn’t know who to trust  while in DC and Bennett where shall I go with that …

Overall slow and there were parts that seemed drawn out long to see the fruition…

“Straddle me, sugar,” he said in a
sandpaper voice, all grit.
Willing to go where she knew she
shouldn’t tread, she did what he asked, throwing
one leg over his lap, knees sinking into the leather
cushion on either side of his denim
clad thighs. His hands went to her hips. Slid down
farther, where he stopped. His
fingertips touched her flesh. Using his thumbs, he
stroked the front of her thighs,
undoing her. Shivers traversed her arms and legs.
Her sex pulsed.
He inched her skirt up, working
until the fabric bunched around her waist. When cool
air struck the back of her thighs, one side of his
mouth quirked up. He appeared pleased
with himself for exposing her panties.
“I’ll give you exactly what you
crave,” he said and ripped the thong from her body.
Tiffany sucked in a breath. He
threw the tattered silk to the floor with his right hand
while flicking her clit ring with the forefinger of
his left. “Nice adornment.” He tugged on
her piercing, giving her the right amount of
pressure. “But you need me to scratch your
itch, don’t you, baby?”
She’d come too far to lie about
what she needed now. Nodding, she whispered,
He chuckled, and the sound was a
flashpoint of sensation added to the slow stroke of
the fingers he’d slipped between her crease.
She leaned forward, hand resting on
the top of the sofa by his head, and kissed him.
While their tongues tangled, he rubbed her, his
other hand going to her hair where he
tugged the clip, releasing the long strands. They
tumbled down her back in time with his
palm curling around the base of her neck, claiming
Oh, she liked the way he took
possession. Everything feminine inside her needed the
pure maleness of him.
Tiffany nibbled at his bottom lip,
pulling scant inches from his mouth. “You make me
burn,” she admitted.
“The feeling is mutual,” he said
and plunged a finger inside of her.
“Ahh, yeah,” she uttered her
He shoved his finger deeper.
“You’re so wet.”
Her hand went to his bulging
crotch. She squeezed him through his jeans. He
groaned. With nimble fingers, she unbuttoned his
fly, freeing his thick cock from the
denim. When the heavy head rested in her palm, she
smiled. He was fantastic, and she’d
known from past experience he’d be commando.
Wrapping her fingers around the
base of his superb erection, she began to pump him.
“Hell, yes,” he said and fingered
her in earnest, inserting another. His thumb pressed
hard against her clitoris, sending heated spikes of
sensation through her body.
She moaned, spreading the silken
pre-cum leaking from him with her fingertip and
licking her lips. Tiffany wanted to taste him. Put
her lips over the crown. Skim her
mouth along his shaft. Take him down the back of her
throat. She swallowed, knowing
the feeling when she took him inside her pussy would
be even better. She needed to
experience her sex stretched over the head of his
dick again. The fiery invasion. The
awareness of being totally filled when he pressed
into her tight channel.
Her chest heaving, she mumbled,
“Sorry, sugar. We’ll have to settle
for this,” he said. Declan removed his fingers from
her body and tugged her hips down on him before he
placed his steel between her
feminine folds. “Slide your sweetness along the
length of my cock.”
Oh, God.
She was so slick, she easily made the glide up and down, her chest rubbing
against his.
In the next instant, he splayed his
large hands across her ass, pulling her against him
even tighter. This was good, sex without
penetration, something she’d never done
before, and the delicious sensation had her nipples
pebbled hard against the material of
her bra, but when he flicked out his tongue,
everything got better. She moaned and gave
him access to her neck, where he wasted no time and
tickled the hollow of her throat
before he nipped at the soft flesh with his teeth.
She shivered.
“There you go.” The vibration of
his deep voice sent a wave of pleasure across the
canvas of her flesh. Every part of her body hungered
for his touch. He slapped her ass.
She jumped and lost her
rhythm—taken aback. “Faster,” he demanded, and she didn’t
have time to consider if she liked the swat or not.
He spanked her again. “Move your fine
She complied, sliding herself up
and down. He slapped her ass once more, but this
time the sensation sent a buzz to her
already-stimulated clit. The joy spreading across
her caught— a wildfire.
“Again,” she uttered in a breathy
“Like that, do you?”
God help her, she did.
What happens when a bad boy who meets with a prissy assistant who forgets his name…, two years later after their last encounters?
In depth well written characters, enjoyable storyline and hot steamy sex scenes made this an Oh My Goodness deliciously good read.
Love the writing style of London, it is one that grabs the attention of readers to captivate and makes any story she writes a great read.
Overall I can honestly say that this is 4.5 star read.

Auctioned To Protect by Doris O’Connor – Excerpt and Review

Title: Auctioned to Protect
Genre: Erotica, Contemporary, BDSM
Long Blurb:
undercover cop Mike Anderson does not submit to anyone, let alone a pint sized
bundle of curves with a Mistress Complex, who stands for everything he despises
about BDSM.
Thrown into
a world where the rules make no sense to him, he has to rely on his instincts,
and they all scream one thing—submit to His Lady.
Simpson is one of the most feared Mistresses at Club Spectrum and she has a
score to settle. Mike’s atrocious behavior needs addressing. If only she wasn’t
so attracted to the big hunk of a man, and he didn’t prove so utterly
responsive. As she explores his boundaries through Shibari and Knife Play,
Scarlett can’t help but get emotionally involved.
freely given is a gift she treasures, but can she trust Mike to stay around
once the case is over? When danger comes knocking, will Mike be able to protect
her, or will this end in tragedy?

Bookstrand /  Goodreads


“Fuck, you feel so damn good
around my dick, Scarlett. Look at us. Look how I stretch your tight hole.
Jesus, baby, tell me this is as freaking good for you as it is for me.”
Scarlett dug her finger nails
into his shoulders in answer and clenched around him, and Mike roared. He
pulled out and thrust back in again, ramming her into the wall, as she hung on
for dear life. Pain mixed with pleasure so intense she couldn’t breathe, couldn’t
talk, just hung onto his big shoulders and took all the passion he gave her.
Here was a man brutally
taking his own pleasure and sending her body sky high in the process. When he
pulled out of her and dragged her over to the sink, Scarlett bit her lip so
hard she tasted blood. Mike kicked her legs apart and then slammed back into
her from behind. This position drove him deeper than before and when he reached
around and stimulated her clit at the same time, Scarlett saw stars. Her whole
body tightened in ever closer spirals of pleasure that started from deep inside
her core. Impaled by his hot member, his harsh breath in her ear, one hand
digging into her hips, the other mercilessly fingering her swollen clit, he
pushed her toward a mind-splintering release. Higher and higher she climbed,
and when Mike grasped one of her legs and shoved it over the edge of the sink,
the move sent her over the edge.
He yanked her torso up and
pulled it up against his chest, allowing him to sink deeper still into the
clasp of her body. Ripples and waves of pleasure crashed over Scarlett, and she
let her head fall back and gave herself up to the sensation rocking her body as
Mike increased his tempo even more. Every forceful thrust lifted her off her
toes, and Scarlett came a second time, or was it the third. Sensations merged
into one, fire raced over her skin, and she screamed his name when he grew
bigger still inside her and then grunted his release into her shoulder, and
warmth spread deep inside her.
Mike lowered her leg with
them both still joined as intimately as two people could be, and he locked his
arms next to hers on the sink. By the time her breathing had slowed down enough
to speak and her hazy vision cleared, Mike was slowly slipping out of her. She
tightened her muscles to keep him in for longer and he groaned and rubbed his
morning stubble across her neck. It left delicious tingles in its wake and
Scarlett moaned her contentment.
Their gazes locked in the
mirror and Mike smiled. Scarlett’s heart turned over in her chest at the open
affection she saw in his azure eyes that seemed to bore straight into her very
“Good morning, My Lady. I
guess this beats coffee first thing.”
* * * *
She was so fucking beautiful,
staring back at him with her huge green eyes, and her fair skin flushed from
the force of her orgasms. A primitive sense of ownership grabbed him by the
throat and squeezed the breath out of him, and he shut his eyes and nuzzled
into the soft skin of her neck. A shudder went through her when he licked the
rapidly beating pulse point and nibbled his way up to her ear. Scarlett ground
her ass against his thigh and he groaned into her neck.
“You’re so fucking wet for
me, baby.”
Scarlett turned around in his
arms and gasped when he sat her on the edge of the sink and spread her legs
wide. He dropped on his knees and inhaled against her wet slit. Scarlett’s
intoxicating musk mixed with his own scent and he watched in fascination as
their combined juices slowly trickled out of her pink flesh.
His cock signaled its
interest briefly and Scarlett smiled down on him when he looked up.
“Have I broken you?” she
Mike laughed.
“Hardly, My Lady. Give me
five and we’ll be ready to go again. In the meantime…”
He bent his head and
delivered butterfly kisses along the incredibly soft skin of her inner thighs.
It was one of Mike’s favorite places to linger on any woman, especially just
after they’d come. Hot, sweet, and intimate, it called him to indulge, and he
blew against her slit, causing an allover body shiver, as her clit contracted
in front of his eyes.
“Mike, please… I’m so close
again… Oh…yeees.”
It was all the encouragement
he needed. Using short shallow strokes he cleaned her cunt, until no traces of
their earlier encounter remained. He rubbed his beard-roughened chin across her
clit, and placed her legs over his shoulder when she started to tremble.
Scarlett’s fingers dug into his shoulders, and she pushed her hips up in a
seeming effort to hurry him along, but Mike had his own plans.
He’d been far too rough on
her earlier, regardless of how much she had been with him in the moment.
Regardless of how much she seemed to have needed that brutal release. Besides
he was fast getting addicted to the needy little moans and sighs she couldn’t
stop from escaping. The way her fingernails scored his skin and her breaths
grew choppier until her body tensed and her pussy clenched and unclenched,
trying to draw in his tongue as her cream gushed into his waiting mouth.
He tunneled his fingers into
her channel and her greedy little cunt clamped down on the digits, as she came
in a series of delightful little tremors. Mike pulled out his wet digits and
gathering up more of her cream as he went along, circled her anus and pushed
“Yes, there, take me there.”
Scarlett clawed at his skin
and his semi hard dick roared into action. He added another finger to stretch
her, and Scarlett bucked against him like a wild thing.


“Easy, baby, I’ve got you. I’ll
make this so fucking good for you.”
Glutton for punishment would be a good description
for Doris… at least that’s what she hears on an almost daily basis when
people find out that she has a brood of nine children, ranging from adult to
toddler and lives happily in a far too small house, cluttered with children,
pets, dust bunnies, and one very understanding and supportive husband. Domestic
goddess she is not.
There is always something better to do after all,
like working on the latest manuscript and trying not to scare the locals even
more than usual by talking out loud to the voices in her head. Her characters
tend to be pretty insistent to get their stories told, and you will find Doris
burning the midnight oil on a regular basis. Only time to get any peace and
quiet and besides, sleep is for wimps.
She likes to spin sensual, sassy, and sexy tales
involving alpha heroes to die for, and heroines who give as good as they get.
From contemporary to paranormal, BDSM to F/F, and Ménage, haunting love stories
are guaranteed.

Firstly this is the first book I read in this series and it is one that can be read separately without being too lost or confused of what is going on. Doris O’Connor does a great job writing a series but not having you reading in order (make sense…).

Fiercely against the idea of BDSM and his sister being “slave”… Mike goes undercover but why, you have to read about that one.

He is one that I didn’t expect to win over the idea of being a sub and submitting to Mistress Scarlett but Oh goodness…The heat the mind games…

Overall a great read that will have you turning pages wondering what is next…

Living in Sin (The Escort Series, #1) by Isabel Lucero – Excerpt, Review & Giveaway


Title: Living in Sin
Author: Isabel Lucero
Genre: Erotic Romance
Publication Date: January 1, 2014


**This story contains graphic sexual content and strong language. Intended for mature audiences only.**

Jace Jamison is every woman’s fantasy. He’s a mysterious businessman willing to sweep you off your feet, a tattooed bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a sexy friend you want to take that next step with. Jace is everything and anything you want him to be. He’s a highly paid escort.

But nobody knows who Jace really is; the man whose dad abandoned him, whose brother was killed, and who had to take care of his mom at a young age. At the age of nineteen, he was living in Sin City, ready for a life away from stress and struggle.

Adrienne has been having a sexual drought since she broke up with her boyfriend. Even then she wasn’t getting fully satisfied. Being an event planner, she’s constantly working at numerous events. Several times she’s seen a man she can only refer to as the God-like creature at her work functions. He’s devastatingly handsome, tall, and has beautiful eyes, but he’s always with a different woman. The last thing she needs is another player in her life.

After a few chance encounters with Jace, her best friend convinces her to just get some good sex out of him and not worry about who she’s seen him with. But what happens when she finds out that he isn’t dating these women because he wants to, but because he’s paid to?

Keeping his job a secret from Adrienne seems easy at first, but when she begins meeting people he knows in his escort life, and they begin getting closer, he knows he has to tell her before someone else does.

When their worlds entwine, and confessions are made, will they be able to work through it? Will she be able to push aside his sins and focus on the good in him? Will Jace get what he’s never had? A woman who wants him despite what he’s done. Or will living in sin cost him what he never knew he wanted?

*An erotic, contemporary romance*

*Book one in a series, but can be read as a standalone.*

Something noteworthy is that Isabel loves to hear from her readers. Never hesitate to get in touch. She’s always willing and ready to talk about anything. If you enjoy this book, she encourages you to not only let her know, but let the world know. Goodreads, Amazon, book blogs, groups, etc. She understands that word of mouth is the best form of promotion.

This is one of those books that I can best summarize as Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo Vegas Style… (Sorry…but that about sums it up in one sentence)… and where Jace choose the lifestyle…

Where Jace goes long in life being life a male escort for the last several years trying to better his income. But along the way he meets Adrienne but she wasn’t one of his clients and knows NOTHING about his profession. She just thinks he is a player since she has seen him at several events that she has work since she is an event planner…

My problem with the book was Adrienne seemed like a miss goodie two shoes that when the sexy scene (sorry this may classify as a spoiler but I have to explain the three and half star rating and this was a HUGE problem I had with the book…) she had a hood ring over her clitoris. That is where I had the problem with it seemed extremely out of character in my mind…

There was some minor other problems with spelling but that could be since it was complimentary copy and didn’t go thru the editing process yet.

Matter of Choice by R.M. Alexander – Excerpt, Review & Giveaway


Title: Matter of Choice
Author: RM Alexander
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 21, 2014


Some promises can’t be kept.

Shannon Winters’ picture perfect marriage is in shambles after a car accident left her husband an amnesiac. The commitment to vows he doesn’t remember making keeps her fighting while covering up the parade of other women and a spectacle of bad behavior. Her career as owner and manager at a successful boutique hotel alongside the Hudson River keeps is her refuge, but, at thirty-seven years old, what she craves is the bond to be repaired.

Even twenty years after high school, Triston Keyes continues to be haunted by the memories of the girl he’d lost, the only woman he’s ever loved. When he meets Shannon during a vacation, he finally has the chance to apologize. It’s the only hope he has if he ever wants to fall in love with anyone else.

Sparks rekindle between them, and Shannon struggles to find a reason to stay true to a broken marriage which is quickly crumbling as she gravitates towards the forgotten love.

Until her husband pleas for her to come back.

But when the depth of betrayal is revealed, Shannon must choose her vows-and her beloved hotel-or to remain true to her heart; while Triston must fight to keep the past from catching up to his future.

Both know nothing is a matter of luck, but a matter of choice …

“I think you’re underestimating my commitment here.”

“I think you’re getting ahead of yourself.”

“Am I?” He leaned forward, his knuckle cupping her chin as he edged it upwards and softly pressing his lips against her mouth. Her every fiber wanted to fight him, to push him away, but their skin pressed together felt too good, and she melted into him.

Slowly, they parted, her voice hoarse as she spoke. “We shouldn’t …” She couldn’t bear to open her eyes. She didn’t want to see the expectations and hope she imagined to be shimmering in his gaze, or reveal the shame and uncertainty she knew was in hers.

He pressed a finger against her lips, leaning forward to whisper in her ear, his breath intoxicatingly warm. “Don’t say ‘we shouldn’t’ anything. Open your eyes sweetheart, look at me.” He paused, and she could feel him back away. Setting her jaw firm, her lids eased open, staring into his gaze a mere inches away. “It was one kiss Shy. That’s all. And I won’t go further than that until you’re ready. But to make it clear, I love you. It might seem impossible, it’s been years and we haven’t spent much time together since I came to the Grande. But I realized this afternoon, when I took a jog down that path we walked… I loved you in high school. Honestly, truly loved you. I screwed it up. But the love never really went away.”

Shannon is committed not only to her job and to her husband as well. A husband she seems to think is having amnesia problems… But is he really??

Tristan, Shannon’s high school sweetheart, makes a visit to the hotel that Shannon owns…

Things begin to unravel…feelings from the past are opened once again…
What will happen?

My thoughts this book is a complete contemporary story that I kinda guessed what was going to happen, who, where and such. This is a predictable story at least to me.

There was no “kink” per-say… There was no sex scenes just an all-around contemporary story that was slow in some place. To me there was no WOW factor in it… There was places in the book where I wanted to reach in give one or another character a DiNozzo cause of they were acting STUPID in my honest opinion…

I am going to add that when you make a vow to someone and their behavior is contradicting with it LEAVE don’t stay as long as Shannon did that is really ridiculous in my mind…There is a saying ACTIONS speak mountains to the unspoken word.

The Dumont Diaries (The Dumont Diaries #1-4) by Alessandra Torre – Review

The Dumont Diaries (The Dumont Diaries, #1-4)A full-length book from the miniseries readers RAVED about!

Lust is a dangerous thing. It can make you believe things that are not real. It can seduce your mind and lead it blindfolded to the cliff that will be its demise. 

What would you do if you could leave your life? Wake up one day and be someone else?

I signed the contract. I left Candace Tapers and her slutty, strip club life behind, abandoned every part of that life with one hesitant swipe of my pen.

The agreement was clear:
1. Sex
2. Photo ops
3. No romance

“I need a wife. I am not signing up for romance, or affection, or a full time job. I will not love you. I will have no use for you other than sex and photo ops.”

Sex with Nathan was easy. More than easy. Panty-melting, can-never-get-enough HOT. I had begun to think that I could live this new life, showered in luxuries, orgasms, and diamonds.

Then I started tripping over secrets.

Disclaimer: The Dumont Diaries contains a strong alpha male, super hot explicit sex, and twists and turns that might cause unnatural heart palpitations. This book does not contain BDSM elements.




Alessandra Torre is an exciting new author who astonished the publishing world with the success of her first novel, Blindfolded Innocence. Initially self-published, the intriguing romance and erotica title quickly rose to the top of the charts on Kindle and Amazon where it attracted the interest of major publishing houses. Currently available on Kindle, iBookstore and Nook, Blindfolded Innocence will be available in print in through Harlequin Publishing on January 25, 2014.

Torre’s captivating story about a young intern’s sexual awakening has won praise and rave reviews from numerous critics, bloggers and book reviewers, including the acclaimed Dr. Laura Berman. In her recent article “35 to Read After 50″ in Everyday Health, Dr. Berman recommended Blindfolded as a must-read for book enthusiasts searching for a new fix after Fifty Shades of Grey. The book has also received high marks from readers on Goodreads and other literary web sites where fans frequently remark they can’t wait for a Blindfolded sequel.

Momentarily stunned by the book’s rapid success, Torre resumed her daily writing routine and published ‘The Girl in 6E’, an erotic thriller that explores the hidden fetishes men covet and the life of a female recluse who battles an overwhelming desire for murder. The Girl in 6E will be released in Summer 2014, as a hardcover novel, through Redhook, an imprint of Hachette.

From her home near the warm waters of the Emerald Coast in Florida, she devotes several hours each day to various writing projects and interacting with her fans on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
