Keeping Her Wet by M. Robinson

Keeping Her WetKeeping Her Wet by M. Robinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I heard that this author was bringing back couples for a little sexy action? I was all in. I downloaded this baby as fast as I could and Holy Hotness!!!! This anthology is mega hot and mega steamy and Gahhhh!

10 short novellas, 10 steamy encounters with some of my favorite couples. I say some because there were a couple of duos who were unfamiliar to me. But hey, they're not now because I got slammed with steam. I'm downloading the other books of these couples because...Damn! I loved every bit of every scene.

All I can say is get this now if you are looking for something to get you in the mood or just for a little bit of spice in your bedroom! Trust me these trysts are wow!

The Preacher's Daughter by Shelly Morgan

The Preacher's Daughter (Rough Riders MC #1)The Preacher's Daughter by Shelly Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 cliff hanging stars

Talk about hot and edgy, this book had me hooked from the start. Engaging and loveable characters made it such an easy read; with a bad a** biker and a ‘good girl’ gone wild I was hooked.

Angel and Torq were so easy to get lost in. Angel with her passion for living the life she wanted rather than the life she was told to; and her fiery temper was quite the combination. Torq, well I love a bad boy biker and he had this down to a T; his attitude and alpha male persona were such a turn on. I loved the cat and mouse game he and Angle played, the sexual tension between them was palpable.

This book evoked so many emotions, anger, fear and lust were ever present throughout the story, and the cliff hanger ending….well thank you very much for that!! I’m not sure how I’ll last until the next instalment, so author Shelly Morgan I do hope you are busy writing.

THE TATTERED GLOVES by J.L. Berg

About THE TATTERED GLOVES

Head down. Don’t look up. Never make eye contact. Those were the words I lived by growing up, the words that protected me in an unsafe home. But words are only letters and eventually even they couldn’t keep his hands off me.
Hoping to leave behind the shattered life of my past, I find myself in a boring, small town, with an aunt I’ve never met and at a school I loathe.
But soon I learn, not everything in this world is as black and white as I’ve determined. Sometimes those we are so quick to judge often need a second, third or even fourth time to make a first impression.
And often, there are friendships and even love waiting just around the corner, if we are brave enough to take the first step.
Am I brave? Or will I hide behind these tattered gloves of mine forever?

★★★OUR REVIEW★★★

As I came to end of Willow Fairchild and Sam Shepherd's story, I found myself quickly flipping to the the prologue of their story. I had come to a realization. Not only did the prologue resound within me, but also I was about to embark on a journey of two beautifully written teenagers story where their hurt became my hurt and where their healing became mine too. Why? The author best describes what the story is about: hope. "In our darkest hours, sometimes, even the weak could find the light."

Both Willow and Sam have experienced a tragedy. Both are tragedies that fundamentally changed them both. But what happens when two changed souls meet? The speed of this story is slower but I do believe it is for impact. Beautifully, quiet words and symbolism a plenty made me tear up in some places and smile quietly in others. This being my first read from this author and reading her first novel in this YA genre was truly a pleasure.

I leave you with this question I've asked myself many times now after I've read the last page...that is when you read this story cause guess what, you will want to. Were the tattered gloves a savior to both Willow and Sam?

West by Em Petrova

   
Amazon: http://amzn.to/2k1ECJD
It's hard to resist a bad boy who’s a good man. But that’s exactly what Malou Bullers, M.D. is trying to do. While working as the rodeo doc, she turns a blind eye to the bulging biceps and Wrangler butts that pass by. Except for one cowboy—and he’s worst of all. West Calhoun is a womanizer, plain and simple. The tie-down roper and reality TV star is never seen twice with the same woman. When he’s not busy on his family’s growing ranch or trying to keep the TV cameras on his good side, West has his eyes on that big win. But he’s distracted by the eccentric new-age rodeo doctor. After a one-night stand with Malou, he’s hooked, but convincing her that he isn’t with a dozen other women might be more challenging than taking on a herd of angry bulls. Meanwhile, a new TV producer is luring West with the promise of a spinoff show and big money that will help his family. But with Malou avoiding him, he’s got troubles that won’t be helped once her secret is revealed, sending West into a tailspin. Can she walk away from the best man she’s ever known?
  EXCERPTS: Her voice was too raspy. That he could affect her this way went against everything she knew about herself. She was a strong, independent woman, not a twittering Buckle Bunny looking for a meal ticket. He did a push up on the wall around her, pressing a kiss between her brows. “Later.” Then he walked away, leaving her hot and sweaty and too turned on to form a complete thought. The only thing she knew for certain was she couldn’t walk away from West until she finished whatever was between them. If she didn’t, she’d never shake him.  
*******************************
  “Let’s get on the road. The sooner we get there, the sooner I can drive you crazy.” With that, she sashayed to the door and slung her duffle strap over her shoulder, leaving him to get the rest. When she threw him a wink, he rubbed a hand over his face. “You’re gonna make me regret this.” “Yes, I am. Let’s hit the road, cowboy.” ABOUT THE AUTHOR:   Em Petrova was raised by hippies in the wilds of Pennsylvania but told her parents at the age of four she wanted to be a gypsy when she grew up. She has a soft spot for babies, puppies and 90s Grunge music and believes in Bigfoot and aliens. She started writing at the age of twelve and prides herself on making her characters larger than life and her sex scenes hotter than hot. She burst into the world of publishing in 2010 after having five beautiful bambinos and figuring they could get their own snacks while she pounds away at the keys morning, noon and night. In her not-so-spare time, she is fur-mommy to a Labradoodle named Daisy Hasselhoff and is a world-class editor who has worked with USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors.

Portland, ME Series by Freya Barker

Series: The Portland, ME Series
Novels: From Dust, Cruel Water, Through Fire and Still Air
Author: Freya Barker 
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural, Women's Fiction
“"From Dust" by Freya Barker is one of those special books. One of those whose plotline and characters remain with you for days after you finished it.” - Jeri's Book Attic - From Dust
"This book touches on some very serious subjects and really tugged at my heartstrings, but nevertheless, it was beautifully written. Be prepared to go through a lot of tissues, because Cruel Water is a tear jerker for sure!" - Author Maureen Mayer - Cruel Water
"Through Fire was another beautiful novel by Freya Barker. One thing you can always count on is to truly feel the book, and relate with the very real characters she creates." - Author Harlow Stone - Through Fire
"In my opinion, there is nothing better than a Freya Barker book. With her final installment in her Portland, ME series, Still Air, she does not disappoint. From start to finish I was completely captivated by Pam, Dino, and the entire Portland family." ~ Author RB Hilliard - Still Air
Pain punished her.
The bottle numbed her.


Guilt kept her trapped.

In the dark alley of a pub, the words “Please don’t” take hold of her heart and break the silence she seeks. Thinking herself beyond redemption, she tentatively grabs on to the slim thread of hope that unfolds inside of her. 
Holding her secrets close, she can’t resist the comforting draw coming from The Skipper. The unconditional friendships it offers, the protective roof it provides, and the spark that its owner ignites in her—melting the frost off her heart, and slowly stripping away her resistance.
His life flows from one crisis to the next. Under the pressure of competition crowding him out of his family’s pub and the need to protect his children from the ruins of a bad marriage, he barely breathes. That is until a mane of strawberry-blonde hair and a set of big, pale blue eyes, shake him up.
He never expected the shadow of a woman he finds on the floor of his washroom to bring him the air―the balance and the light he’s been missing.
**Due to some content of a sexually explicit nature, this book is recommended for a mature audience only.**

Innocence marked her…

Violation crippled her… 


Love left her raw…
The life she carefully rebuilt is challenged when she is confronted with the sins from her past. The carefully applied protection is at once ripped away, leaving her exposed and vulnerable.
Her single night of indulgence with the silver-eyed stranger is only the beginning. He sees right to the heart of her and she is unable to ward off emotions that have been deeply buried. With the sting of betrayal still fresh in her soul, she’s surprised to find herself opening up to the honest integrity of the sharp-eyed, rough-looking biker.
When he lost everyone who mattered, he was left without roots and learned to be content simply living in the moment. Completely unprepared for the feisty blonde bartender with old pain marring her clear-blue eyes, he questions his own rules of detachment, as she unwittingly finds a way under his skin.
Appearances deceive and when the masks fall away, revealing deep, dark secrets, there is nothing left but to hang onto each other and survive the storm.
Violence corroded her… Obedience defiled her… Fear kept her chained… Freedom is hard to embrace when she’s never learned to trust. Yet in the span of a second, she grabs a single opportunity and runs toward it. Straight into the sanctuary of a pub at the end of a wharf. She doesn’t understand the concept of friendship. She’s never felt the connection of a relationship. She’s as innocent as the driven snow and yet tainted with corruption. Still, she finds herself surrounded by people who accept her, without even knowing the first thing about her. But one of them is determined to dig deeper. He treasures his friends, yet he’s steered clear of committed relationships. He likes his life comfortably predictable and entirely controlled. Until it isn’t. For months he’s avoided interacting with The Skipper’s newest addition. Perhaps realizing that once he looked deeply into those liquid brown eyes, he wouldn’t be able to turn away. When his present and her past puts them both on the brink of change, they are forged through fire as one.


Deprival haunted her…
Regret troubled her… 
Silence left her detached... 
A life in the service of others is both penance and a blessing. She soothes her personal hell by pulling victims from theirs, helping them on their path to survival; never finding her own.
When a crippling blow finally evaporates her last hope, the temptation to give up is strong. Still, she can’t find it in her to turn her back on those who need her: the innocent, whose rescue is her perpetual goal. 
He was blind, but now he sees how his family has sifted through his fingers. The reality hits hard when his son becomes a stranger, slipping deeper into transgression. Concern has him call on the one person he fears will see his own failures all too clearly. A woman he’s kept his distance from for his own protection.
What appeared to be an incompatible pairing, turns out the unyielding bond needed to heal them all.
Freya Barker inspires with her stories about 'real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
