Review for Fury by Jenika Snow


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 Only His by Jenika Snow

only his


SYNOPSIS: There’s only one man Gillian’s loved, and it’s the man that used to be married to her mother. The years have gone by, and her relationship with David is closer than ever. But what she wants from him she knows she can never have.

David stopped Gillian from getting assaulted seven years ago. After that his feelings for her changed into something dangerous. He loves her, would do anything for her, even if that means following her and making sure she’s safe.

He isn’t ashamed in what he does, because it’s all in the name of love. But when another man takes an interest in Gillian, David knows he can’t stand by and let that happen. But when Gillian finds out David’s all but stalking her, can he stand the thought that she may want nothing more to do with him? Will the betrayal be too much for her?

REVIEW: I love the writing style of this author. This dark romance has an extreme over-the-top alpha that is basically stocking his best friend/former stepdaughter because he needs to keep her safe. He’s in love with her and she’s in love with him but neither knows how each other feels. The sparks fly when the truth is revealed!

This is another great short story by this amazing author.  I can’t wait to read more.

Review for Painkiller by Jenika Snow


SYNOPSIS: Rosie’s the only girl he’s ever loved.  Rebel’s no good for her, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting her. He parties too hard, doesn’t care if he does well in school, and fights far too much. But it’s who he is, and no one can change that. But God does he want to be good enough for Rosie.

He’s the only boy she’s ever loved.

They call him Rebel, and the nickname suits him well. Rosie’s known him nearly her entire life, and they are the total opposite. She’s a bookworm, studies hard, and wants to get into a good college. Rebel could care less about any of that. But he’s always been there for her, no matter what, and they are as close as two people can get, but just as friends … or can there be more?

REVIEW: This is a step brother romance.The bad boy and the nerdy, sweet girl. SIZZLING! It was a good quick read but I had a problem with one little detail in the story. They may both have been adults and 18 years old but they were still in high school. That’s just a little too taboo for me. If that weren’t the case, I could’ve enjoyed the story much more and it would’ve been a 5-star read.

With that being said, I will still continue to enjoy the AMAZING short stories written by this author and I look forward to more in the future.

Review for Hard by Jenika Snow



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

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

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 of The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen


The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen
Published by: Samhain Publishing
Publication date: July 7th 2015
Genres: Erotica, Romance


Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut. After hitting a wall with her dream career, she’s back in her hometown, living a life as monotonous as swimming laps in the neighborhood pool.

Being surrounded by her perfect brothers is a painful reminder of her failure to launch. The last bonfire of the summer is an ideal way to let off steam, especially when she runs into Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.

Since the day Dean met Jamie, he’s loved her beauty, talent, and smile that lit up the whole damn block. But dating isn’t an option. She has a bright future ahead of her, and he refuses to chain her to his—helping run the family business that’s barely staying afloat.

A “what-happens-in-Vegas” weekend was supposed to get their craving for each other out of their systems. But neither counted on the past repeating itself, drawing them together in even hotter and dirtier ways and dangling the possibility they might both be able to get exactly what they need…

Warning: A friends-to-lovers twice over story that contains some hot ’n’ heavy kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who knows how to use his hands. It may also feature a few practical jokes—only the fun kind, of course.






Jamie Matthews and Dean Trescott had been friends since high school. She wanted to be a fashion designer and he wanted to be a photographer but those were the dreams of teenagers. He ended up working for the family business as a mechanic and she ended up working as a swim instructor. He never thought he was good enough for her and he didn’t have anything to offer her. She came from money and he didn’t. He never wanted to hold her down or make her stay in town when she was destined to go to bigger and better places. For the past six years they’ve had a sort of push and pull relationship. He’d pull her in just a little then push her away but always wanted to remain friends. This last time was it for her. She’s finally decided to move on!

A beautiful friends to lovers story. There was misunderstandings, friendship, love and the most important thing was the self-discovery. The connection between them almost felt physical, it was so strong. Their chemistry was off the charts and the sex was smokin’ HOT! This is book 2 in the Portland Rebels series and can be read as a stand alone. I can’t wait to read more from this amazing author.

A Saints Salvation - Book Cover


Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he knows was meant to be his.
Petty Officer Angelina Jones’ life changed the moment Saint saved her life. She survived the blast but now has to deal with the fact that she will never be whole. Knowing Saint received a ‘Dear John’ letter, Angelina has no intention of being his rebound romance. She needs to be loved for herself. She needs to forget about the one man she knows was meant to be hers.

They each try to find someone to help them forget.

But what does fate have planned for them?

A Saints Salvation - Teaser 1


A Saints Salvation - Teaser 2


Nick quickly took advantage, pressing his hand deeper as he raised her up, her ass on his forearm. Angelina squirmed, rubbing against him. Nick bent and sucked a nipple into his mouth, teasing it through the silk. He slid a finger in and out of her heat, lightly rubbing her clit with his thumb. Angelina moaned and tightened around his finger. Pressing her close against him, Nick increased his thrusts. Nick bit her nipple and was rewarded with a cry as Angelina clamped down, drenching his hand as she came apart in his arms.
She placed her head against his shoulder, shivers running through her while her arms and legs tightened around him. Nick pulled his hand free from her warmth and licked his fingers clean, making smacking noises as he did.
“Pig.” It was so low Nick barely heard the comment. Nick chuckled as Angelina giggled in his arms.
“Did you want another glass of champagne?” Angelina shook her head and squirmed against him. Nick squeezed her to him, enjoying the feel of her, despite the tightness in his groin. “Are you ready for dinner? Or shall we just head straight to dessert?”


Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago
Saint is serving in Afghanistan when his heart is broken over a ‘Dear John’ letter. Everything seems to get worse at that point. Normally a happy go lucky kind of guy he seems to have lost his optimistic view of life. The only thing that stirs his interest is ‘Doc’ a female medic assigned to the FOB. Not wanting anymore entanglements, he ignores her. He knows that he needs to go home to find the place he belongs and bring back the man he was.
Angelina ‘Doc’ Jones
She had the hots for Santiago but everyone knew he’d been dumped. Doc didn’t want to be the rebound. She joined and became a corpsman against her parent’s wishes, knowing just that she had to serve. When the grenade changed her life, she needed reassurance and someone to love her despite her disability.

Character Interview with Nicholas Santiago


1. Who is Nicholas Santiago? Please tell us about yourself. I’m a Marine. You can tell from my last name that I’m of Mexican descent on my dad’s side. One of the reasons I’m called Saint. The other is the tattoo I have. ‘Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future’. I’ve always been more sinner than saint.I’ve always wanted to be in the service and the Marine’s just called to me. My mom says I was born to be a Marine. She doesn’t always mean it as a complement!

2. What event shaped your life the most? Seeing that grenade come toward me. My life flashed before my eyes. I thought that was the end.

3. What is your greatest fear and your greatest weakness? My greatest fear is not finding who I am again. War changes you and I don’t like who I am because of it. I know I can find my way back. My greatest weakness? Being vulnerable to love again.

4. What drew you to the Angelina? She’s so capable yet has a vulnerability about her. I love her sassiness. She won’t put up with any of my bullshit.

5. How has Angelina changed your life? She made me realize that love can’t be denied.

6. What do you plan to do about the attraction between you? Only as much as I can persuade her. I won’t force her, of course, but I can be extremely persuasive, especially when I want something and I want Angel.

7. Is there a moment that haunts you? The fact that I wasn’t able to protect Angel. She says I saved her life, but I should have been the one hurt. She worked to save us all every day and I feel as if I failed her.

8. What keeps you going day after day? Pure grit and stubbornness. It’s part of my genes.

9. What would you never do? Turn my back on Angelina or my family and friends. They are why I do what I do.


I love a good military Romance. This is a short but complete story of two injured soldiers, Nick and Angelina. They both need someone to hold onto during these trying times. He’d received a Dear John letter and she didn’t want to be his rebound. I love a good military romance. This is a short but complete story of two injured soldiers, Nick and Angelina.

A Saints Salvation - Author Photo


Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.
Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.
An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.
A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty five years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

Fun Facts:
The name was changed less than two weeks before publication!
A Saint’s Salvation was inspired by my son’s tattoo
His tattoo says ‘St. Nicholas’ – the original name of my book
A Saint’s Salvation took me eight months to write!
The name of A Saint’s Salvation was my editor’s suggestion
The teasers were made from photos from Afghanistan
The Marine in the teasers is my son
He only gave me permission to use his photo because he loves me
He only gave me permission if I cut off his head! LOL

5 LOVE TAP Review of His Plaything by Ava Jackson


His Plaything ebook cover

Add to Goodreads


Warning: If you can’t handle a Navy SEAL with a filthy mouth, and a huge cock who wants to turn you into his plaything, this isn’t the book for you. Carry on.

An ass you could bounce a quarter off of.

That’s the sight that greets me of my new roommate as he f*cks a blonde on the kitchen table.

That’s right before I get an eyeful of his giant cock. Cue wet panties.

Oh, and did I mention he’s a Navy SEAL?

One semester. That’s as long as I have to last—and then I’m gone, graduated, off into the real world.

But can I survive that long without becoming … his plaything?

Her Plaything Teaser


My heart still pounding, I pressed my back against the door, as if trying to hold the thought of Nixon at bay. But no matter how pissed I was—at myself, at that manwhore and his horrible suggestion—I couldn’t stop thinking about his body. I couldn’t stop picturing him taking me. The sharp snap of his hips as he thrust in his long, thick cock up to the hilt. All his muscles rippling as he pounded into me with everything he had. His long, sinewy back, his washboard abs, his tight ass…


I could feel his eyes tracing every curve. Hell, I could practically read the dirty thoughts running through his mind.

* * *

She whimpered, and I almost moaned in response. Oh, fuck—one hit and I was addicted. I wanted to pull that sweet little noise from her lips again and again.

As soon as I started to read the “About the Book” section, I was hooked and I couldn’t put it down if I wanted to.

  Warning:  If you can’t handle a 
  Navy SEAL with a filthy mouth
  and a huge c*** who wants to 
  turn you into his plaything, this
  isn’t the book for you. Carry on…

Yeah! That was a challenge I couldn’t pass up and I was not disappointed.

NOTE:  this is my first foray into the “stepbrother” romance.  These two share absolutely no blood and are far enough removed from any actual step-relation that it doesn’t feel weird.

I completely enjoyed reading this book. It is a well written, very erotically sexy romance with the perfect amount of adult humor, that was over way too quick.  Ava Jackson definitely knows what she’s doing. Looking forward to reading more from this very talented author.
