Before Sin by Nana Malone & Minx Malone

A man's face is obscured by his hands as he takes off his t-shirt. He has lots of muscles.Book: Before Sin

Series: Sin Duet prequel

Authors: Nana Malone, Minx Malone

Release date: 22nd May 2018

Main character: Matthias, mysterious young man and a deadly genius.


They say love is all around.

Yeah, for everyone but me.
It sounds crazy, I know. Breaking News: badass bodyguard for the nation’s top security firm doesn’t know how to talk to women.

That’s it, folks. I have no game. Luckily my newfound family at Blake Security accepts me exactly as I am.
But there are things in my past, secrets, that I’d do anything to protect them from.

Why you should read it: This writing duo are really at the top of their game. The prequel was short, but from the outset it intrigues and makes you want to keep finding out more. Who is Matthias? What happened in his past that altered him so much? Will he ever find peace? What’s the deal with the Family? How can this hunk of damaged maleness be a virgin??? All the answers to these questions will be answered – I’m sure, but I need to know everything right NOW!

What you may not like: Not much to hate on here – it’s very short – it whets the appetite for book 1, Sin. I would advise you to have Sin cued up after finishing the prologue, as you’ll be drawn in completely.

Rating: 5/5 for a promising start to the series. Will anyone manage to capture Matthias’s cold cold heart? Stay tuned…

Blog tour – Melt For You by J.T. Geissinger

64CFC999-F035-4B3B-9109-8B7B23CF7E81Book: Melt For You

Series: Slow Burn #2

Author: J.T. Geissinger

Release date: 15 May 2018

Main characters: Joellen Bixby, office wallflower and suffering from low self esteem. Cameron McGregor, her new sexy, annoying neighbour who pushes all the buttons.


Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday – with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks.

Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type – at all – but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.

Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man – and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.

Why you should read it: I’m a huge fan of J.T. Geissinger – she writes funny, multi-faceted characters with flaws and lots of personality. I loved Burn For You so much that it was a no-brainer to read Melt For You when I had the chance. The story was engaging, touching and had me swooning in places. The chemistry between Joellen and Cam really had me invested from early on. It went deeper than boy meets girl and it gave a nice twist to the trope. It also delved deeper into serious themes, such as self-esteem and self-loathing and how it’s never too late to combat these issues.

What you might not like: In the main, I liked Joellen. I felt for her most of the time, but then at other moments I had to ask myself whether she was really 36 years old?! She behaved like a child for a lot of the book and while it completely exasperated me, I understood that she had her issues and that made me try to understand her behaviour. To live without any positive reinforcement is happily not something I’ve experienced, so I tried to empathise with her on that score.

I did however have a slight issue with some of her internal monologue:

These people should work for the CIA! I turn the shower on full blast, go into the closet, and crouch down beside my dirty-clothes hamper, feeling like a refugee fleeing from a totalitarian regime. Which really isn’t too far off the mark.

Really? Your situation is comparable to those currently fleeing for their lives? Okaaaaaay. Not dramatic at all! So, I may have wanted to slap her at times, but apart from that I liked Joellen. Truly. Heroines can’t always kick butt and be self assured, (but if I’m honest, I prefer them to).

Rating: 3/5 for a funny (mostly provided by Cam), sexy (also provided by Cam) read. Preferred book one but this one is an enjoyable romp if you don’t mind a pessimistic heroine with myriad issues.



Blog tour: Deceived by Elisabeth Naughton

DECEIVED high res cover

Book: Deceived

Series: House of Sin #2

Author: Elisabeth Naughton

Release date: 15 May 2018

Main characters: Natalie James, Luciano Salvatici


Some doors were never meant to be opened…

I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world.

But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought I loved. The man I once foolishly trusted. The man who, despite his lies and deception, I continue to crave.

He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me.
Lost forever in his wicked House of Sin…

Why you should read it: This is the second book of this exciting series and if you enjoyed Forbidden, you’ll be dying to know what happened to Natalie when she woke! The pace of Deceived was good – the sparks were flying between Luc and Natalie – honestly, their lack of effective communication fuels a lot of drama and misunderstandings that may have you shouting at your kindle. The action is constant and although there are lots of questions still to be answered, we find out a lot about who Natalie and Luc are as characters – I like Luc much more in this book. He is well-rounded and determined to keep Natalie safe at all costs. It’s a very sexy read – the majority of the book is simmering sexual tension due to the pair’s standoff. HOT.

What you may not like: There’s a lot of discord in the book – so if you’re looking for a lovey-dovey book with insta-love, you’ll be disappointed. This is erotic suspense with complex characters and there’s still so much to learn. There are baddies aplenty and intrigue at every turn. I want more!

Rating: 4/5 for an exciting and frustrating read! I need closure on this series!

Cover reveal: As Dust Dances by Samantha Young

A woman, bathed in light sits with her knees drawn in to her chest. Her face is hidden.(Cover designed by by Hang Le.)

Coming 7 August 2018.

Once upon a time Skylar Finch was the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band. But fame made her miserable. When years of living a lie suddenly ended in tragedy, Skylar fell off the map.

Eighteen months later she’s sleeping in a tent in a cemetery in Glasgow, making just enough money to eat by busking on the streets. She manages to avoid recognition, but not the attention of one of Glasgow’s ambitious A&R executives.

Killian O’Dea works at Skyscraper Records, Scotland’s most successful record label. Raised by his uncle and owner of the label, Killian’s upbringing would have been devoid of affection entirely if it wasn’t for his loving sister. Killian is unflinchingly determined to bring the label more success than ever, and the young homeless woman who busks on Buchanan Street is going to help him do that. Her music speaks to him in a way he refuses to over-analyze. All he knows is that if it can touch his dark soul, it’ll set everyone else’s alight.

Skylar makes it clear that she doesn’t want to sign with him. But when she experiences the dangerous reality of a woman sleeping rough, Skylar has no one else but Killian to turn to. An undeniable connection forms between them. But Skylar doesn’t want the career Killian is trying to forge for her, and when her past comes back to haunt her Killian will be faced with a decision that could ruin him. He must either free Skylar from his selfish machinations and destroy everything he’s ever worked for, or lose a woman who has come to mean more to him than he ever thought possible…

Blog tour: Straight Up Love by Lexi Ryan

75798B9A-487A-47AF-BE78-F4F208A39BBCBook: Straight Up Love

Series: The Boys of Jackson Harbor #2

Author: Lexi Ryan

Release date: 8 May 2018

Main characters: Ava McKinley, teacher about to lose her job, divorcee and desperate to become a mother. Jake Jackson, her best friend who loves her madly.

For my thirtieth birthday, I’m giving myself the one thing I want most: a baby. Sure, this would be easier if I had a husband – or even a boyfriend – but I refuse to be thwarted by minor details. When I drunkenly confess my plans to my friends, they convince me to ask Jake Jackson for help. Jake, the best friend who’s been there for me through thick and thin. Jake, who also happens to be smart, funny, ridiculously good-looking, and the winner of all the genetic lotteries. So when Jake takes me up on my request – with the stipulation that we get the job done the old-fashioned way – I’d be a fool to decline. The only problem? I don’t know if I can separate sex from all the things I feel for this amazing man. If I can’t keep my heart under lock and key, I risk losing the relationship I need the most. Jake has his own reasons for granting my baby wish. But when I discover his secrets, it could mean the end of us. I have to choose – run or stay and fight for love.

Why you should read it: I really do love Lexi Ryan. She invests so much time and energy into her series to create multi-faceted characters. Straight Up Love was no exception – I enjoyed revisiting Jackson Harbor – it’s so vividly depicted that I feel like I know it. Its inhabitants each have their own characters and I’m looking forward to delving deeper. The chemistry between Ava and Jake was off the charts (once they finally woke up!) and it was an angsty and romantic story.

What you may not like: Did I mention it was angsty? Well it is – turned all the way up to eleven! I loved the characters but Ava’s obtuseness at times really exasperated me! The guy told her how he felt, yet she spends half of the book wondering how he feels?! They were quite dumb at times, considering they’re best friends and all, but it did make the HEA that much more satisfying! There’s plenty of family secrets that are about to get cracked open so I’m definitely sticking with the series.

Rating: 4/5 for an engaging and addictive read. Stick with it and you will be rewarded.

Favourite quote:

“Do you think . . . I mean, should we get screened or anything? For infections or whatever?” I step back and force myself to take a breath and remember I’m not going to rush into this. Slow the fuck down, Jackson. This is a marathon, not a sprint. “I’m okay with that if it would make you feel better.” She nods sharply. “It seems like the responsible thing, right? I mean, I haven’t been with anybody since Harrison, so they’re not likely to find anything but dust up there, but—” I cough to cover my laugh — not at the dust joke so much as my shock that she hasn’t been with anyone since Harrison. And she’s planning to sleep with me. I won’t let myself think that means more than it does. “I don’t think vaginal dust mites are a thing, so you should be good.”

I Dare You by Ilsa Madden-Mills

E85F0724-59E2-4537-92BE-54FE144C7224Book: I Dare You

Series: The Hook Up #1

Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills

Release date: 29 April 2018

Main characters: Delaney Shaw, student and self-confessed nerd girl who’s nursing a broken heart. Maverick Monroe, big man on campus, football star wo has his heart set on Delaney.

Plot: Delaney Shaw is no-nonsense, moxie-filled and a card-carrying nerd. She’s also licking her wounds from finding her ex in bed with her arch-nemesis. Determined to focus on her studies and stay away from all athletes in future, she is puzzled and intrigued to receive a text from someone who seems to know her already, and who would like to know her in the biblical sense too!

Her curiosity is piqued – they banter back and forth easily, talking about anything and everything, but she’s not sure who the mystery texter could be. Meanwhile, in her real life, she’s still resolved to stay away from athletes despite the attentions of a certain footballer called Maverick Monroe. They may have shared a moment a long time ago, but no way is she making herself vulnerable to yet another player.

Mav Monroe has always had a thing for Delaney – he may have blown his first chance, but he’ll be damned if he makes the same mistake twice. Now she’s finally single, he launches a devastating charm offensive. Will she be able to withstand his advances, will she ever get to see the man beneath the swagger? Will Delaney ever be ready to risk her heart again for the chance of something special?

Why you should read it: This was a super sweet and funny story that ended far too quickly! The was banter, slow-burning romance and plenty of drama to boot. I adored the main characters – they were so cute together and their back stories were sad but didn’t dominate their present. There were plenty of sweet moments when both characters showed their vulnerability and became very well-drawn. I adored this book – what can I say? It was exactly what I wanted to read having come off a very intense and heavy book.

What you may not like: Muffin the baddie – we never get to find out what motivates her to be such a cow, but I suppose that’s not important – she just is. She’s a pantomime villain who will make you boo and hiss. Other than her, I didn’t find much to dislike, it’s a great read you can finish in one sitting (I did!) and it will make you feel good all over!

Rating: 4/5 for an entertaining and heartwarming tale. Can’t wait to see how this series will develop. Can I just mention that cover? Oh my Lord. The bar in covers these days is getting HIGH!



Blog tour – Forbidden by Elisabeth Naughton

FORBIDDEN high res coverBook: Forbidden

Series: House of Sin #1

Author: Elisabeth Naughton

Release date: 24 April 2018

Main characters: Natalie James, woman on a mission to find out how her best friend died; Luciano Salvatici, enigmatic CEO of Covet, a successful magazine and keeper of dark secrets.

I’ll leave tomorrow if that’s what you really want me to do, Luc. I won’t fight you on it. I just hope…” She hesitated and looked down at where I held her, but when her eyes slid back to mine, I saw the dampness in her gaze. “I hope someday someone makes you see yourself the way I see you. I’m just sorry it couldn’t be me.” She gently pulled her hand from my grip, and I let her because I suddenly couldn’t breathe.

Plot: Natalie James has taken time out of her safe, small-town existence to find out exactly what drove her friend Elena to a drug overdose. Something doesn’t add up – she knows her friend and drugs were never her vice.

She plans to infiltrate Covet, the magazine Elena worked for, but she has to get through to the intractable Luciano Salvatici first. He’s intimidating, dismissive and he sees right through her ruse. She’ll have to find another way. But how? Natalie’s mission will take her on a mysterious and possibly deadly journey and she will have to get closer to Luc. Does she stand to lose more than her heart in such a dangerous game of cat and mouse?

Why you should read it: I love Elisabeth Naughton – she really does romantic suspense so, so well. This story is full of intrigue, sex and adventure. I really didn’t know where the story was headed and was happy to give myself over to the storyline completely. The dual point of view narrative gave a greater insight into each character and the reader is left in no doubt about who they are as people. I was rooting for them but I couldn’t see how they would extricate themselves from the tangled web of deceit.

What you might not like: This is a trilogy. You should know this going in. There will be cliffhangers and a slight gap in between book releases. If you don’t mind waiting then start this series as soon as possible! It’s steamy, it’s sweet and it’s suspenseful. If not, maybe wait until the series is complete (June 2018).

Rating: 4/5 for a strong start to the series. I have questions, I want to know what will happen next and I’m totally invested in Natalie and Luc.


This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret. The release schedule is as follows:

She’s no princess. He’s no prince. Then again, they never wanted a fairy tale.

Cassie Allbright takes no prisoners. A half Cuban ball-busting attorney, she’s too tough to admit what she wants in bed. But tough is the only way to cut it in her high-powered firm, and Cassie doesn’t need a knight in shining armor. And she definitely doesn’t need Patrick Dunham – an arrogant, chauvinistic man-whore with a knack for pissing her off.

Bound to the helm of his family’s publishing house, Patrick is shackled to a life of power and wealth he never wanted. Seduction is his only distraction—his nights of pleasure always temporary, because happily-ever- afters are not for him. But while luring a woman into his bed has always come easy, the high-and- mighty Cassie has never succumbed to his charms.

Their verbal sparring turns to foreplay, but instead of scratching an itch, it only whets their appetites. Patrick gives Cassie a taste of what she’s secretly craved, and Cassie’s dark desires
stir up things Patrick never knew he wanted. Enchanted, he offers to fulfill her most dangerous fantasies. She agrees, with an iron-clad escape clause: her heart is off-limits, and so is his.

Funny thing about hearts, though. They have a way of ignoring the fine print.

Warning: This book isn’t for the faint of heart. Disclosure includes angry, vying-for- control hate sex and one steamy weekend in Miami. Ready? Break the caution tape and proceed.


“I’ve always loved your spitfire attitude.”

121F5BB3-0F58-49DE-BADA-3F25F1EE3B47Patrick’s voice cut through the night. Cassie stopped and whirled around. He was standing at the doorway to the bar, his arms crossed like a bouncer or a Greek god.

“Have you now?” Cassie cocked her brow and placed a hand on her hip. “Well, you’d love me in bed then. I’m a spitfire there too.”

The words popped out before she could stop them, but she didn’t regret it. For once, she wanted that bastard to know the chance he’d passed up. Because she might never have been in love and had dated some serious losers, but damn it she knew how to make a man moan.

Patrick dropped his hands to his sides and quickly closed the distance between them.

“Prove it,” he said.

“Prove what?”

“That you’re a spitfire in bed. Unless all you can do with that mouth of yours is talk.”

It took everything in her not to snarl. He was baiting her, seeing how pissed off he could get her, like he always did.

Screw the consequences. She’d had enough of his attitude. This time, she was calling his bluff.
