***REVIEW** Taken by Ava Delany

Taken by Ava Delany

Author Winnie Schafer attends a research outing to a fetish club. Between her size and the unusual people and acts, she doesn't exactly feel like a princess. But when she takes refuge in a fairytale room with sexy young adult author, Mark Vaughn, all her dreams might just come true.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is book 4 in the Fetish Club Series by Ava Delany. I started on book 3 then straight to book 4, I must go back to the start and read them all!

I enjoyed this one. Winnie is a curvy lady, who feels that other women are prettier than her. So when she visits the fetish club with a couple of other writers for some research, seeing the club owner Jaqueline makes her a tad jealous. 

I liked Winnies character, she seems a vernice lady, funny and sweet. And she obviously has something going on as her friend Mark seems to have had the hots for her for quite some time! 

You see a lot more of the scenes of the fetish clubs rooms in this book, some really nice, some...well.. a little strange lol! But each to their own! Another good one from Ava :D 

***REVIEW*** Thousands of Mornings by Amanda Leigh

Thousands of Mornings by Amanda Leigh

A collection of original photography and poetry.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

I haven't read a poetry book in along time, I do own one which I go back to every now and again, it houses some of my favourite poems. But this one by Amanda Leigh is now going to stay on my Kindle permamently, and no doubt I will go back to this one time and time again!

All of the poems were really good, and the photographs Amanda had taken herself too were beautiful. Very simple photographs, but I really liked them.

There were 2 poems in particular that stood out to me. Here they are:
(both poems are copyright of Amanda Leigh, she has given me her permission to use them)

The Horses

Cool wind flying through your hair.
You hear the loud steps.
You run faster.
The steps get louder, you see the place you want to be.
You slow down.
The steps aren’t as loud.
The wind isn’t as cool.
You’re close.
You then slow to a stop.
The steps and the wind stop.
You are thirsty, and you see an astonishingly beautiful, clear lake.
You then go there slowly.
Bending down to take a sip, you feel the fresh cool water trickling down your dry throat.
You see another who looks thirsty.
Walking over to them, you nudge them on the back.
They look at you, and you gesture toward the lake with your head.
You and the other walk over there, and you are content and you are happy.
You are home.

I Love The Way...

I love the way we are when we’re together.
The way you hold my hand.
The way you sing me to sleep.
The way you wipe away the tears that I cry.
The way you kiss me before we say goodbye.
I know we’ll be together forever.
Our love will never die.

I thought these 2 poems were beautiful. 'The Horses' sounded just right, so natural. 'I Love The Way...' is very sweet, and I would love to think everyone gets to feel this way in their lives, I know I do.

A fantastic book of original poetry and photographs by Amanda, if you haven't read it already, grab yourself a copy!

***REVIEW*** Blackened by Christina J Loren


Blackened by Christina J Loren

When it comes to life as a vampire, Damien has it all figured out—until his conscience kicks in, and his lover steps out.

Damien loves every aspect of his life as a vampire, except feeding time. That's when his conscience decides to turn on, and he must face his dark cravings—alone. He had it all under control until Nathan disappeared one night. Damien's control is slipping on the beast inside, and he needs Nathan now more than ever. If only he didn't suspect his lover of betrayal.

Two battles must be fought. One of the heart, and one of the soul. Will Damien's fear become a reality, and the urge to kill blacken his heart before Nathan can bring him home?


This is the third book in the Turned Series. 

I enjoyed this one just as I enjoyed the first two, although maybe this one a little more.
I liked the fact that this one had more of a story in it. Nathan is hiding something and Damien has the idea he is playing away. But Damien has other problems, he is starting to feel rather guilty about drinking from humans, and is trying to do something about it. Where will things go, and what will happen when Nathan finds Damien passed out in the street?

*** REVIEW*** Eternity by Christina J. Loren

Eternity by Chrsitina J. Loren

Even vampires need boy toys...

Human errand boy Jason was sent for one purpose: seduce Damien Meade.

Damien Meade is a fledgling vampire who's learning the ropes and falling in love with his maker, but there remains one problem: he can't resist the sexual games his sire plays.

With toy in tow, Damien leads the man back to the apartment where Nathan is waiting to join in the fun. 

This is book 2 in the Turned Series by Christina. Again, I enjoyed this one just as much as the first.

In this story, it's been a while since Nathan turned Damien. They've had a small falling out, so Nathan sends Damien a gift, a young blue eyed guy! As Damien take shim home to have some fun, Nathan appears, and what was a promising night between vampire and human, turns into a fully fledged threesome. And a new vampire is born!

Hi there!

I've been around a little more this week, mostly I have been catching up on some blog stuff, sorting out the posts for the Blogoversary etc. It's been another glorious week weather wise here in Newcastle, we only had one day aof rain, and that only lasted a couple hours really. Heavy thundery showers planned for today though :/

I have read and reviewed Veiled by Ava Delany. My review is here.

I have also read and reviewed Turned by Christina J. Loren, you can find the review here.

This week I have finished my book buying ban!!! 2 whole months! My post is here.

And Jorja Lovett was here answering my 20qs this week. Check it out here.

TV/movie wise, we've not watched much really, just been ploughing our way through Sons of Anarchy season 3 on Netflix :D I honestly think I love Charlie Hunnam more and more each time  I watch it!! I attempted the first episode of Downton Abbey, but I'm not sure if it's for me :/ Any of you guys watched it?

***REVIEW*** Turned by Christina J. Loren

Turned by Christina J. Loren

Nathan thinks that Damien is easy prey. He stalks him right up until the point Damien turns the tables.

Damien wants to be like Nathan, he's aching to be turned. But when Damien's plan works and he finally has Nathan right where he wants him, Damien awakens a craving far deeper than just a thirst for blood. And Nathan is there to satisfy every urge.

This is book 1 in Christinas Turned Series.  I quite enjoyed it!

I dn't read many M/M books, but I liked the story behind this one. Vampires are great, and these 2 were brilliant. I loved the cocky-ness of Damien, he seemed to know just what to say and just how to get Nathan to do what he wanted him to. I quite liked Nathan too, but really want to move onto the next book as I'd love to read more about him.

That was the only downside, teh book wasn't really long enough to get a good background on the characters, but there is always books 2 and 3 to read :D

*** REVIEW *** Veiled by Ava Delany

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

Veiled (Fetish Club series book 5) by Ava Delany

Secrets are a way of life for thriller novelist, Jacob Carter, and the local fetish club is full of them. Angeline, the sexy woman he's never seen without her black mask, hides some dark secrets behind the ebony wood. When the mask falls away, they begin to see that sometimes unveiling a secret is the real fun.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. Here it is:

I really enjoyed this short from Ava, a wonderful sexy story, but a beautiful one too. I loved the fact that Jacob decided to go back to the Fetish club without his mask, in the hope of seeing Angeline without hers too. They have a great scene in the Roman bath room, and when Jacob accidently removes Angelines mask, he see's why she refused to take it off. 

She runs off,  but a few days later,a sfter trying to figure out what to say, Jacob finds her, and tells her just how much he loves her. A very romantic story indeed :)

Well done Ms Delany, I will be going back to the start now and reading the rest of the Fetish Club series!

20 This or That questions with.... Jorja Lovett!!

Hi guys! Welcome back!

Today Jorja Lovett is around answering my 20 qs, see what she has to say :)



Food
Sweet or savoury? Definitely sweet. Given the chance I'm pretty sure I could survive on chocolate alone. If I wasn't diabetic, I think I could too :)
Salad or sandwich? Sandwich. Salad is a side dish as far as I'm concerned lol
Macdonalds or Burger King? Hmm I prefer the taste of Burger King I think. Unfortunately for my waistline they've opened one just across the road. Thats torture!
White meat or red meat? I eat a lot of chicken but a well done steak is my idea of food heaven.

Entertainment
Bon Jovi or Guns n Roses? Bon Jovi. I prefer their songsand their lead singer is a lot prettier to look at. So much prettier :D
Movie or book? That's a toughie! I own as many DVDs as I do books. If I've read a book and it gets made into a movie, I usually prefer the book to be honest.
Movies or TV shows? Total TV addict!
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? Harry Potter. I never really got into the Lord of the Rings.
Damon or Stefan Salvatore? I started off as a Stefan fan (I don't go for bad boys) but I think Damon has overtaken him in my affections. Stefans too much of a softie for me!
True Blood or Vampire Diaries? True Blood! Where else do you get to see Joe Manganiello naked and growling? My idea of heaven!!
Friends or Sex and the City? As much as I loved Sex and the City, Carrie was a whiny bitch. So I'm going with Friends because it appeals to my sense of humour. How you doin'? ;) I'm doin' fine baby how you doin'! I love Friends too, and I love Joey!
Star Wars or Star Trek? I love the early Star Wars films but I'll go with Star Trek. I watched the old stuff and enjoyed it as much as the new films. Plus, I had a huge crush on Wil Wheaton in TNG.

Random
Dominance or submission? I'm a control freak so I have to say dominance.
Kisses or hugs? Can never get enough kisses!
Bath or shower? I prefer a bath if I ever get peace to have one. Preferably with a book and some choccies. Now I'm not a bath person, but that sounds like a nice peaceful time!
Call or text? I like a saucy text :O
Date night: stay in or go out? We don't go out very often, so when we do we make the most of it. I love having an excuse to get dressed up. Me too
Singing or dancing? Karaoke scares me to death so I'll go with dancing.
Vanilla or kink? A little bit of both :D
Cotton or satin? Slinky satin for me please.

Anything you'd like to add, or anything new you'd like to tell us about while you're here?

Thanks for having me. This was fun! My latest news is that the second book in my series, The Wild Irish Wolves, is coming soon. 'The Wolf on the Run' is the follow-up to 'The Wolf on the Hill' and will be released Oct/Nov.


I've also just signed a contract for an exciting new series with Total-E-Bound, so watch this space!

Keep up to date with what's happening via my blog
 
Thanks for coming by Jorja! i must get started on Wolfie book 1 
(I know I know, I'm sorry!!), in order to catch book 2 when it 
comes out! And congrats on the new series, looking forward to it!

Bon Jovi Concert.... Take 2, in Glasgow!! July 3rd 2013

So a bit late I know, but on July 3rd 2013 we went to the second Bon jovi concert this year :) This time my sister came with us too. Here's how our day went.

The day before the concert (2nd), my sister stayed over, and guess what..... found out that night that she's pregnant!!! So joyous news straight away!!!

The next morning my aunt came round at 10 to watch the kids, and we left when Darren picked us up at about 10.45am.

We stopped off once on the way there, and I think it took us around 2 1/2 hours to get to Glasgow from Newcastle. The drive was fine, I think we were just so excited lol!

We parked, then went for something to eat at a nearby pub. Burger and chips, and it was really nice,. I had a bottle of Smirnoff Ice (which I've not drank since I was about 18 lol), and then a 'woo woo' cocktail!

We went straight into Hampden Park and got our place at about 4pm (after Darren had to go move the car as we didn't realise we parked in a permit only area :/), and sat on the floor for a while with a drink of pop and took some photos.

 This is me and my sister. Love this photo :)

And heres my sister in her tour top, trying to hide her face! :)

'Of Kings and Captains' were supprting Bon Jovi again, and they aren't too bad actually! But the other support band 'We Were Promised Jetpacks' were awful, I'd be very happy to never see them again!

Bon Jovi were a little late taking to the stage, about 20 minutes late I think, but when they arrived they sure arrived!!! The concert was fab, the crowd were much better than at Sunderland too.

  1. That's What the Water Made Me
  2. You Give Love a Bad Name
  3. Raise Your Hands
  4. Runaway
  5. Lost Highway
  6. Whole Lot of Leavin'
  7. It's My Life
  8. Because We Can
  9. What About Now
  10. We Got It Goin' On
  11. Keep the Faith
  12. Superman Tonight
  13. In These Arms
  14. Captain Crash & the Beauty Queen From Mars
  15. We Weren't Born to Follow
  16. Who Says You Can't Go Home
  17. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
  18. Bad Medicine
    (with "Pretty Woman" and "Roadhouse Blues")
  19. Encore:
  20. Wanted Dead or Alive
  21. Have a Nice Day
  22. Livin' on a Prayer
     
    Note: Phil X was filling in for Richie Sambora.

    The concert was great, and as the Jon Bon walked around the Golden Circle bit we got to see him again, nowhere near as close as last time as we were just normal standing this time, but still good! The set was only on for under 2 hours, so not as long as last time, but I still enjoyed it. Check out some of the pics:
     
    Courtesty of Darren Jobe

     Afterwards we ran down infront of the stage to get some photos of the licence plate sign:

     My other half infront of the sign, wearing his new tour top
    Me and my sister infront of the sign (getting pushed out of the way though as they were dismantling it straight away!)
     
    The drive back seemed to take ages, and we were all so tired, so the next day the kids stayed off school! 

    Hope these guys come back next year! With Richie this time though!

BREATHLESS PRESS PRESENTS HAYE DEBORAH DIDDLE BY SJ THOMAS 19th June 2013

BREATHLESS PRESS PRESENTS HAYE DEBORAH DIDDLE BY SJ THOMAS 19th June 2013 

Title: Haye Deborah Diddle

Author: SJ Thomas

Genre: Naughty Nursery Rhymes

Heat Rating: 3

Publisher: Breathless Press

Formats Available In: All eBook formats

Word Count: 22,890

Blurb: Step into a world where the greatest adventure of all is desire.

When Deborah Diddle leaves her quiet village to escape a forced marriage, she soon comes across Haye, the most seductive and mysterious male she has ever seen. Haye offers to teach her about the desire she craves, but he is not of the mortal world, and to know his touch Deborah must face the challenges of his forest; a world of bizarre and fantastic creatures, seductive temptations, and dangerous enemies.

Will Deborah succeed and win Haye? Or will she succumb and lose both herself and the male who stirs her body and soul...

Book Links:


Excerpt:

"Mmm, I could teach you about life, little Deborah Diddle, teach you all about the best bits, as you put it. Give you a taste of the desire you seek. But you would have to face my forest first. The apple will allow you to enter, but there will be challenges, things that will test you."

"And if I fail these challenges?" Deborah asked in a breathy voice.

Haye's expression tightened with menace. "If you fail, you would be trapped in there forever."

With a shiver, Deborah closed her eyes. To risk that much? Opening her eyes again, she looked up at him. "What would be my reward if I win?"

His expression softened, his lips twisting into a seductive smile. "If you win, if you defeat everything in your path, then I will be waiting for you as your reward."

Now it was Deborah's turn to tilt her head, appraising him. "And what makes you worth such efforts, sir?"

A surprised look crossed Haye's handsome face and then he stepped even closer, his expression growing dark and heated. Deborah held her ground, though she was unsure whether instinct was telling her to run or stay.

Haye stopped only a hairsbreadth from her, his height forcing her to crane her neck to look up at him. Deep in his eyes a fire burned and Deborah could feel it spreading across the space between them, fanning a flame inside of her.

"I'm the best you could ever have, little girl. I could show you things that you would never dream about in your darkest fantasies. Do things to you that would make you scream in pleasure. I could teach you everything about passion, lust, and desire you could ever hope to know. If you are worthy of me."

A sharp breath left her at his words. This close, he overwhelmed her, his silky voice and male presence wreaking havoc with her senses, and as she looked up into his eyes she felt herself being pulled toward him like a moth to the deadly flame. This male was living temptation, danger and damnation, sex and desire, in one mouthwatering form. In truth, he was everything Deborah had been looking for.

Not even realizing what she was doing, Deborah leaned closer, raising her hand to touch him, but her fingers passed through him as if he were made of air. She snatched her hand back, and looked up at him in confusion.

A mocking smile now played on those masculine lips. "I have no physical form in your world. If you want to touch me, girl, if you want my hands on your body, you will have to come to me fully." He held out the apple. "If you dare."

Oh, how she wanted his touch! With merely a look and a few seductive words, Haye had evoked more desire in her than any of her encounters with Rolf. She could barely imagine what being kissed or touched by him would feel like, but she knew it would be beyond anything her world could ever give her. In that moment Deborah knew she would risk all to experience it.

Raising her chin in a defiant gesture, she grabbed the apple from him. "I believe, sir, that you are an arrogant ass. But as you are also the most desirable man I have ever seen, I will take your challenge." She raised the apple to her lips, pausing before taking a bite. "When I see you next you'd better be as good as you say."

I received a copy of this book from one of the authors (Allie A Burrow) in return for an honest review!

Here's my short reviews on each story:

For One Night Only by +Allie A Burrow ★★★★★
I loved this story. The scene in the train was one hot ride! But I loved how quite obviously Mark and Kate loved each other. Allie done well writing this story of 2 people in a long distance relationship,  I think she captured their longing for each other perfectly :)

Over A Dead Body by +Leona Bushman ★★★★
I quite enjoyed this story. I liked the start of the story, how Riker was automatically thought to have been the killer, and how it just so happened to be his ex who was called in to the scene ;) The sexual tension in this one was high between the 2 characters, and eventually you see where that tension takes them! 

Red, Whites and Blues by Mickey J Corrigan★★★★★
Fantastic story :) I loved how this one literally got straight down to the dirty. Rolling around in the sand, naked with a hot stranger, what a way to spend your day! But I got goosebumps during the last few paragraphs. Those last paragraphs were my favourite, very sweet indeed :)

Leave Taking by +Angelica Dawson ★★★★★
A hot short from Angelica. I liked this one, the passion between husband and wife was huge. I can't begin to imagine what it is like not to see your other half for long periods of time, but if the reunion is anything like what these guys had, I'm sure all those who have moments like this, always enjoy it :)

First Date: The Italian Colonel by Jessabelle Jones★★★★★
This was another quick story, but a good one. The Colonel was a damn fine Italian, who seemed like the type of guy who could stop hearts in an instant! Great sex scenes in this one too, I liked the truck scene ;)

Majors Minah by +Raven McAllan ★★★★★
Wow. Ms McAllan has a way with words, and certainly has a way with her historical romances ;) I really enjoyed this and would love to read more of Minah and Olivers life together. 

Knock Out by Natalia Petrovskii★★★★
A lovely story about Nicole and Ryan. Both like to spar with each other in the gym, until one day, even though Nicole thinks he's an arrogant pig, Ryan changes things and kisses her. There starts a lovely relationship, and plenty of secret sex :)

A Chance at Love by +Shelli Rosewarne ★★★★
Suzanne is told right at the start that her brother has been killed in action, which devastates her and her brothers friend Aiden who came to give her the news. Aiden stays over as he can't get straight back home, and Suzanne sees and opportunity to feel something more than just pain for a while. a lot of sex later, a beautiful love story arrived :)

Taking Command by +Zara Stoneley ★★★★
Jade and mike meet again, him a good friend of the family, 6 months after a wild night of passion together. Now at first I was like 'wtaf! Shes gonna drug him!' But when you see she doesn't its all good :) a good story from Zara!

Riding Out the Storm by Natalia Petrovski★★★★★
I liked this one. Anna and Kyle both have to take shelter in a cabin somewhere when a storm comes in while they're on a training exercise. Anna has always known Kyle was a good looking dude, and certainly finds out just what he's capable of when they're alone together... freezing cold.... and need a way to keep warm ;)

All in all I give this book 5 stars! I've already read some works from some of these authors, and like them, now I've found more authors too watch out for! I really enjoyed it (even though it took me a while to get through as I've been kinda ill quite a bit recently), and look forward to reading more stories from these authors :)

Anything you'd like to add, or anything new you'd like to tell us about while you're here?
I'd love to hear from you!


I have a new story out with Breathless Press in the Ad-Dick-tion Anthology vol. 3. It continues the love story between my heroes Eran and Paul that I began in Ad-Dick-tion vol. 3.
PAUL'S MISTAKE




Paul has no doubts. He wants Eran in his life. But can Eran, a young man from an abusive background, come to terms with his fears so he can have a future with this man he loves?

EXCERPT

The technician looked around, a smile spreading on his friendly face. He patted the soft case he carried. "Excellent. This should only take a few minutes."
Paul held the door open and motioned to the living room. "TV's over there." A noise from the kitchen startled him. "I'll leave you to it," he murmured when the man opened his case. He found Eran in the kitchen already dressed. He didn't meet his gaze and Paul leaned against the doorframe as his lover concentrated on making the coffee.
"I thought you were going to wait for me," he said after a moment, wondering at Eran's change of mood. The playfulness was gone, replaced by a troubled expression. Eran lifted a shoulder as he added grounds to the coffee maker and Paul noted his tousled hair and wrinkled shirt. He'd been in a hurry to dress.
He sighed inwardly when he thought of a possible reason, and crossed the room and pulled Eran back against his chest. Eran stiffened, then relaxed into his arms.
"I won't let anyone hurt you," he said against Eran's neck.
"I know. I just felt at a disadvantage, if something were to happen…"
They both looked up at a guffaw from the living room, and exchanged a smile when the tech called out, "Found the problem! Be done in a jiff."
Eran blushed slightly. "Okay, I may have overreacted here, but with Gary out…"
Paul tightened his hold. "Gary won't jeopardize his parole by coming near you," he said, hoping it was true. Eran's brother-in-law had gone to prison for battery of both Eran and his sister when they lived with him. As their father had done before Gary. Paul swallowed his anger. It wouldn't help Eran at all.
He glanced across the room at a polite cough from the doorway, but wouldn't let Eran go when he tried to step away.
The tech looked embarrassed. "Um…changed the cable box. Short in the wiring."
"Let me get you a check." Paul put his lips against Eran's ear. "Stay right here."
He went to the desk in the living room and wrote a check for the amount on the bill, then showed the technician out the door. He couldn't help chuckling as the man scurried down the drive as if glad to be going. Paul returned to the kitchen and looked at Eran where he leaned against the counter, arms crossed over his chest.
So beautiful. Eran's ink black hair brushed his chin, framing a delicate face and enormous blue eyes holding an unexpected sorrow. Paul walked up to him and tugged the slim, strong body of the man he loved into his arms. He planted little kisses along Eran's jawline. "Tell me what's wrong, baby."
Eran's chest rose and fell on a deep sigh. He nudged Paul back but wouldn't meet his eyes. Paul braced. Eran could be stubborn and he'd have to keep his head. Their few arguments had ended with him heartbroken and Eran in tears. The boy had grown up in fear and pain and it would take more than frilly words from him to make it all better.
Eran gave a short laugh. "So pathetic. You left the room and I heard him out here, and I felt five years old again with Father drunk in the kitchen." His voice shook and he bit his lip, eyes downcast. "Why can't I forget? God, you made a big fucking mistake with me."
Paul made his tone purposefully light, though his heart ached. "Yes, I did. I should have ignored the door and pinned you to the mattress and fucked you breathless." Encouraged by Eran's watery laugh he slid an arm around his waist. "What do you say we change and take a run around the park? Clear that fluffy head of yours."
"You saying I'm an airhead?"
"Only sometimes, lover. Come on."
Eran resisted when Paul tugged on his sleeve. Paul planted a hand on either side of his waist, trapping him against the counter. Pain knifed through his heart at the regret and sadness showing on his lover's face. "Tell me what you're thinking," he urged.

Sun 7th July- Sat 13th July

Hi guys.

I haven't been around this week much at all as I have a raging chest and throat infectfion, and have lost my voice :( so I've pretty much been watching tv and doing sod all all week.

I read and posted my review of The Orgasm Project by Doris O'Connor, you can find the review here.

I'm still reading Serviced, but I'm halfway through the stories now and enjoying it. Dan Browns Inferno has been chosen as out book for July in my Babycentre book group so I hopefully will get to that soon.

As for TV/movies, I've watched wuite a bit this week with being poorly. I watched '21 Jump Street' (with Chinning Tatum looking as fit as ever),  I watched Disneys 'Up' for the first time (its so sad), I watched half of '#People Like Us', which was alright. Me and the other half have finished Sons of Anarchy season 1 and are now busy watching season 2, and I hav ebeen catching up on my (should I really admit this?)... Teen Mom 2 that I've had recorded on the Sky+ box since like forever!

+Aimee Duffy was in my hotseat answering 20 qs this week.

Hope you guys have had a better week than me!

*** REVIEW ** The Orgasm Project by Doris O'Connor

The Orgasm Project by Doris O'Connor

What's a girl to do when her best friend confides her inability to orgasm? Set up the Orgasm Project of course, and Maria knows just the guys to do it. Her hot as Hades brothers might be full of themselves, but at least they're safe. What can possibly go wrong?

Anastasia wants the ground to swallow her whole when she meets the twins. How embarrassing can this be, even if the gorgeous hunks set her knickers aflame with just one look? 

Jake and Carter know their mate when they see her, and nothing is going to stop these cougar shifters from claiming her. Their night of passion leads to discoveries neither one of them is prepared for.

Has their bite awakened a monster or their destiny?


I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. 

Oh boy was I excited when this turned up in my inbox :D 

Now, of all the books I've read so far, no one can write shifters like Ms O'Connor can! I love her shifter stories, and this one was just as good as the rest! I freakin loved it, and those boys...well... they're a damn hot couple of guys ;)

I loved the fact that Maria set her friend up with her 2 hot brothers, but what made it special was the fact that Ana couldn't enjoy sex with anyone until these 2 came along. You'll find out why when you read it, I'm not going to spoil it for you!

Ana was a great character. I liked the way she trusted her instincts with Carter and Jake, even though part of her kept asking 'what are you doing with these 2 guys you don't know!'. It all worked out though didn't it :D 

I liked Maria, she had sass, and I'd like to read more about her, maybe Doris will carry on the series? I hope so!

Now, onto these 2 hunks of gorgeousness. Jake and Carter, well what can I say about these 2? They are damn fine... and sexy... and wild... and wow I'm getting flustered thinking about them! Lucky Doris having these guys in her head all day ;)

I loved this story, and would definitely recommend to everyone!

Well this week I haven't read much at all (again!), but I did read and review His Guardian Withc by Angelina Rain. Check out my review here:

I've started reading Serviced Anthology, and have recieved a copy of The Orgasm Project from Ms O'Connor which I am hoping to get to real soon ;)

TV/Movies this week has been more of Sons of Anarchy with the OH. I watched a couple of movies, Life as We Know It (with the ever gorgeous Josh Duhamel! *swoon*), and Friends with Kids, which was alright.
