Synopsis:

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.

When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.

Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.

I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.

Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.

That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.

It’s the call I’m terrified to make.

I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.

Review by Christine:

Thrive by Aly Martinez is an emotional tale with all the “feels” you look for in a second chance at love story. This is the second installment in Aly’s Guardian Protection series and it’s so different from Singe but ties in perfectly.

Jeremy Lark hasn’t seen or heard from Mira York in 17 years when he lost everything with a single choice she made. Mira York has had a rough life because of a choice she made and has been trying to get out of her choices ever since and with one phone call everything gets turned upside down.

I loved how everything about this story wasn’t perfect. Mira didn’t listen to Lark. Lark showed his frustration with Mira. Both of these characters are fighting emotions that are being brought to the surface from years ago. So much has changed in each others lives but their connection is undeniable. 4.5 Stars for Thrive by Aly Martinez

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

Review by Paula:

Nathan loves watching other people have sex. But the neighbor woman just something about her makes him almost want more. Emberleigh goes to a club and can’t stop starring at the mystery man and loves getting him turned on. Will they finally meet and what will happen when they do?  Very hot steamy read that you will need a cold shower after reading! 4 sexy stars

Portrait of romantic couple

Blurb:

My name is Nathan Reines… and I’m a voyeur. Yes, I like to watch people have sex. Witnessing the desire on their faces as they writhe in ecstasy makes my blood hotter than the hottest flame. There’s nothing more erotic than seeing their bodies tighten and tremble as they balance on the edge of ecstasy. It makes my dick as hard as fucking steel.

I’ve never been tempted to have a lasting relationship with a woman—why get involved when watching from the sidelines is so fucking hot? But from the first time I watched the woman in the apartment across from mine, I knew she was different. She teases me with her soft touches and gentle caresses. She tempts me with her silent moans and sexy whimpers. She excites me, and makes me want more than I ever have before.

For two years, I refused to give in to my curiosity. That is, until fate took things in her own twisted hands. Now that I know what it’s like to experience Emberleigh in the flesh, there’s no damn way I could ever go back to simply watching.

Although this is book 3 in The Consumed Series, Watching Mine may be read and enjoyed as a STANDALONE.

Tyler
Tahoe. Badass. SEAL. Player. Powerful. Jerk. Available.
All words used to describe me for the past ten years. Wrapped up in the war, running and gunning constantly, has taken its toll on me. My next assignment is supposed to be a break, something to aid in taking the edge off; help open a new base in the miniscule, coastal, Florida town of Bronze Bay. A non-deployable position, I can work-out, decompress, and handle the mundane tasks of structuring a new SEAL command. Or, in other words, enjoy my free time with the tanned, toned, country women of the south.

Mission accepted.

Falling for a southern belle wasn’t supposed to happen. In fact, it’s more stressing than any challenge in my sordid past. Especially when she uttered the words, “I am a virgin.”
Someone cover me, I’m going in.

Caroline
My first memory is in an airplane over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. My daddy sitting beside me and my heart full of joy. When I was sixteen, I made my first solo flight over those exact same waters. My daddy owns and operates the little airport in Bronze Bay, so my eyes have been skyward for as long as I can remember. Things like men and college, never appealed to me. My days are spent waitressing in my Mama’s diner, counting down the hours until I can head to the airport.

Then the SEALs came and changed everything. Big, brutal, jerks, forcing themselves into our little slice of paradise. Demanding use of our airport. One man in particular, aiming to take more than I’m ready to give. He is beautiful. Magnetic. Strong. Convincing. For the first time in my life, I’m flying in a different, exhilarating way. Keeping it isn’t going to be easy when merely looking at the man makes me think of four words.

Foxtrot. Uniform. Charlie. Kilo.
Bless my heart, I’m in trouble.

Wild Fury by Lindsay Cross


Wild Fury (FURY Security #1) by Lindsay Cross

Cover Design: Kari March Designs

Release Date: February 1, 2018

 

Synopsis

She’s been in love with the same man since she was a little girl— but that man’s been broken beyond repair.

Tomi was forced to leave Cole years ago… but even with a new boyfriend, she can’t seem to let go. Working under a new employer, she struggles to forget her old life— but the situation she’s landed herself in is worse than the one she left. Her boss is a sex trafficker, and after she discovers what he’s done, he takes her hostage to sell so she can’t turn him in.

She runs to the only one who can save her; a military man harboring both affection and hate.

A deadly lethal ex-SEAL, Cole doesn’t know how to love, only how to fight— his entire life is a war he can’t win. When Tomi comes back into his life, desperate for help and targeted by an internationally known killer, Cole won’t say no to protecting the one that got away.

Cole can’t trust Tomi, but his heart longs to dominate her… completely.

Together, Tomi and Cole team up to take down the sex trafficker and set the slaves free. But Cole longs for complete control, and his dominant behavior is too much for Tomi to handle. Yet learning to let go and ride through the pain is a steamy and thrilling experience for Tomi, nearly as thrilling as learning to dodge bullets.

Cole and Tomi are destined to be together again. But in order to survive the danger, they’ll have to fight back— hard.

**

An erotic and dark romantic suspense novel, Wild Fury is the first book in the brand-new FURY Security series by author Lindsay Cross. A Navy SEAL military romance that’s sexy, suspenseful, and tells the story of a second chance at first love.

I’ll stop at nothing to own her.

I’m a collector of dolls.

All kinds of dolls.

So beautiful and sexy, they become my art.
So perfect and flawless, my art galleries are flooded by the wealthy to gaze upon my possessions with envy.
So fragile and delicate, I keep them tucked away for safety.
The dark and torrid tales of Drayton’s Dolls run rampant through the rich and famous, and all but a few are true.
Normally I share my dolls for others to play with or watch on display.

But not my special doll.
No, not her.
Ivy is the most precious doll of all.
She’s mine. All mine.

*Scoundrels & Scotch is a dark billionaire romance. If you don’t like a splash of shock, a dash of taboo, and a heavy dose of sex, then don’t take a sip of this TOP SHELF cocktail.

SCOTCH_dolls2

Review by Victoria:

If you like those of so delicious yet oh so taboo stories, have I got one for you! Alta does it again in this kinky addition to the Top Shelf series!

Ivy is a waitress at the Spiked Rose, a high class club that provides more than just a stiff drink. That is, until she gets fired. One mistake could cost her family the financial support they need. Luckily Victor Drayton steps up to be her knight in shiny armour.
Victor Drayton, a senoir member of Spiked Rose, is also a world renowned artist specializing in shows of the taboo and sexual nature. He spikes peoples curiousity in the darkest ways. His Dolls are known for their appeal and special abilities. Could she really become a Drayton doll though? Does Ivy have what it needs to be a Doll?
This exciting read is filled with passion that will spark from our darkest of thoughts. Alta brings out the inner temptress in us all that we tend to shy away from. Embrace the darkest parts of sexuality and explore. Victor will guide the way with his art that pulls more and more attention to this taboo side. It’s a ride you won’t regret. 5 stars!
