My Netgalley splurge continued this week, with a few more approvals added to my growing pile. First was Base Instincts, by Larissa Ione, which is a new M/M story in the Demonica universe. I really enjoyed this series and am looking forward to reading this novella.

25880767The second was Fangs for the Memories, by Molly Harper, who is one of my favourite authors for a good laugh. This is a novella in the Half-Moon Hollow series which I have really enjoyed.


Based on a recommendation from a friend, I picked up Coming In From The Cold, by Sarina Bowen, which is currently free on Amazon Kindle. I haven’t read anything by this author but I value my friend’s advice and it was free, so why not!

24917521Finally, I was browsing the bargain bins at a large department store this week and found All Fall Down, by Ally Carter in hardback on special, so I grabbed that, too. First time in a long time I have actually purchased a physical book for myself, but this has been on my TBR list for a while and the cover is so pretty!

Here is my haul from this week. Late post this week as I’ve had a house full of sick people 😦

Granted Netgalley requests

Granted Netgalley requests

I got a bit carried away on Netgalley this week  – Absolute Lovers by S.J. Hooks, Everybody Rise by Stephanie Clifford, and Are You Still There by Sarah Lynn Scheerger. Quite an eclectic group.


Purchased from iBooks

Because I hadn’t read the first book from S.J. Hooks, I purchased Absolute Beginners from iBooks using pretty much the last of my birthday gift voucher. I’m a big fan of her free works online, so am looking forward to this series.


Purchased from Amazon

Finally, I received my Amazon pre-order of Wingmen by Daisy Prescott, which I bought because it was only 99c on Kindle and I wanted to read one story in it which – sold separately – was $3.99.

So that’s it for this week. Whew! Keep an eye out for my reviews of these in coming weeks. So what new books did you pick up this week? Let me know in the comments.

Need, by Sherri Hayes

8 Aug

Format: ebook

Published: July 26, 2012
Publisher: The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House
Back cover blurb:
As Brianna comes to terms with the realization that she is no longer a slave, she must figure out what she wants for her life. Forgetting her past isn’t an option. It is an integral part of who she is now, and it will forever shape her view of life. The one thing she knows is that she cannot imagine her life without the man who saved her, but can she be what he needs?

Stephan never imagined falling in love with the woman he rescued, but the thought of her no longer being part of his life is physically painful. The scars from her past continue to haunt her, and he is helpless to stop them. All he can do is try to help her work through the traumas of her past. Can he be everything she needs and help her move on?

The two must figure out how to navigate not only their relationship with each other, but also the outside world. A friend from Brianna’s past shows up where she least expects them, and Uncle Richard continues to enforce his well-meaning agenda to get Brianna more traditional help. As forces, both friend and foe, threaten to tear them apart, Stephan and Brianna have to navigate the turbulent waters and find what they need in each other.

My review:
Excellent sequel to Slave, in which Brianna and Stephan continue to develop their relationship slowly as she recovers from her time as a sex slave. This book has more intimate scenes than the first, as Brianna gradually becomes more comfortable with Stephan’s advances, but I think I enjoyed the intrigue even more. The mystery surrounding Brianna’s past deepens and becomes less clear-cut, and I began to suspect many other characters may have had a part in her abduction. The ending is a perfect cliffhanger, setting up the third installment due next year.
My rating: 5/5

Virgin Daiquiri, by Moira Rogers

10 Jul

Format: ebook, 37 pages

Published: December 12, 2008

Publisher: Changeling Press

Back cover blurb:

Caitlin Carlson, the only non-witch in the powerful Dumitrescu line, needs to lose her virginity, and fast. A family legend about a pure soul with prophetic visions has put her first in line for a good, old-fashioned sacrifice, and visiting Last Call seems like the perfect way to head off her one-way trip to the altar. Buy a drink, go upstairs, have sex. Simple. Virgin Daiquiri: Looking for a first lover. Being a demon isn’t as easy as it used to be, especially with the dwindling number of corruptible souls in the 21st century. Luckily for Leofric, he’s never been particularly concerned with corrupting enough innocents to earn a promotion off of the mortal plane. But when a virgin wanders into Last Call and stirs up competition among the younger demons, Leo finds himself tempted to rethink his stance on mixing a demon’s business with a woman’s pleasure.


My review:

Oh, yes! This is why I started reading this series. I may even like this one more than the first book… it’s just perfect. Hawt, tender, sassy and with sufficient backstory that I feel I know these two, even in the short time we’re given with them. Leo might have to join my (rather long) fictional boyfriend list 😉

My rating: 5/5

Tequila Sunrise, by Moira Rogers

8 Jul

Format: ebook, 37 pages

Published: October 17, 2008

Publisher: Changeling Press

Back cover blurb:

Werewolf Evelyn Smith loves her boyfriend, Kieran. Some people find it odd that an alpha female would choose a weaker mate, but Evelyn is willing to ignore her occasional cravings for submission when the reward is a fulfilling life with a man who loves her. Kieran Rhys doesn’t mind the mocking jibes of his pack, but knowing the woman he loves has needs he can’t meet drives him crazy. After months of coaxing, he’s finally convinced Evelyn to accompany him to Last Call. If he can’t give his lover what she needs, he’ll find someone to help him. Tequila Sunrise: Looking for domination. Unrequited love has been hard on Zack Elliott. Even if the object of his desire returned his feelings, she’s a fragile human whose body couldn’t withstand the force of his needs. Evelyn and Kieran seem like the perfect solution, especially when he realizes the one thing they need is the one thing he’s been holding back for far too long–absolute domination.


My review:

Hmm, better than the previous book but not as good as the first in the series. This at least had a bit more backstory so we understood the motivations of the characters, but some parts squicked me out a bit and I had to keep reminding myself that they were wolves more than humans.

I felt sorry for Zack and see there is a side story featuring him. It would be nice for him to have a happy ending.


My rating: 3/5

Hurricane, by Moira Rogers

6 Jul

Format: ebook, 36 pages
Published: September 19, 2008
Publisher: Changeling Press
Back cover blurb:
Artist and witch Fiona Logan hasn’t had an orgasm since a bitter ex cursed her five years ago. Whenever she gets aroused, bad things happen. Now, she’s come to Last Call in hopes of gaining an audience with–and help from–its owner, a powerful wizard named Benito D’Cruze. If anyone can break the curse, it’s him. And if he won’t come downstairs to meet with her, she’ll bump and grind until his bar caves in from the backlash. Hurricane: Contents under magical pressure. Experience required. Ben doesn’t get involved with patrons… not even the hot, sexually frustrated ones. But when a lush looking blonde threatens to wreck his bar with her curse and her need, he decides it’s time to take matters–and her–into his own hands. After all, even if he can’t break the curse, he can certainly ease her frustration. And what powerful wizard doesn’t love a challenge?
My review:
This one didn’t grip me as much as the first book. Maybe it was the magic, or maybe it was that the characters didn’t have ANY backstory prior to hooking up so I didn’t feel a connection to them. I still like the premise of a supernatural bar where you can get anything you need, so I’ll keep reading the series. Next up is a threesome – oh my!
My rating: 3/5

Just Gotta Say, by Laura Kaye

24 Jan

Format: ebook, 65 pages
Published: September 28, 2011
Publisher: Decadent Publishing
Back cover blurb:
Callie Davis stumbles upon two of her three male roommates in a surprising, molten-hot midnight tryst and discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. Desire to play with them grips her, and she can’t stop fantasizing about having multiple men, particularly her three long-time best friends.Callie is thrilled when a guys’ night out gives her the perfect opportunity to recreate her fantasy, with the help of a threesome porn video and a bag of sex toys. That is, until Lucas, Jack and Noah return early and catch her in the act. More than anything, the guys want to make her fantasy come true. But Callie has a secret, and she can’t help wondering if being with all three men will risk the future she’s always wanted with one of them.

As three strong sets of hands caress and undress her, Callie surrenders to desire, because sometimes you just gotta say…yes.

My review:
*stares slack-jawed into the distance, blinking rapidly* OMG, Laura! That was erotica with a capital E! I don’t think I can review this without venturing into NSFW territory, but suffice to say one word: Foursome. ‘Nuff said. *blink* Awesome foursome. *blink*
My rating: 5/5

Fifty Shades Darker, by E.L. James

15 Sep

Format: ebook
Published: September 15, 2011
Publisher: The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House
Back cover blurb:
Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house.

But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.

While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

My review:

Christian Grey is so addictive, it is no wonder Ana Steele can’t stay away from him for long. The man is sex on a finely tailored stick, and reading about him should come with a warning about the likelihood of becoming excessively hot and bothered. And desperately in need of ice cream.

Fifty Shades Darker begins just where E.L. James’s first novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, left off, with Ana and her Fifty apart and miserable. Thankfully, they don’t stay that way for long.

Ana opens her eyes to the possible pleasures awaiting her in the Red Room of Pain, but the darkness of the title places numerous obstacles in the couple’s way. One of these obstacles comes from an unexpected quarter, leading to a truly shocking ending for the book.

James’s writing is fast-paced and descriptive, and she infuses her characters with a lot of humor. As with the first book, some of my favorite exchanges were the e-mails Ana and Fifty fired back and forth, which epitomized the flirty, fun side of their relationship.

I could not put this down and, after that cliffhanger ending, cannot wait for book three.

My rating: 5/5
