Review: His All Night by Elle Wright #NewRelease #MCRomance

The Blurb
In relationships, Calisa Harper has clear rules: no expectations, no commitments, no one gets hurt. She doesn't need a diamond ring to bring her happiness. She just needs Jared. Fine, fit, and ferocious in bed, Jared is Calisa's ideal combination of friend and lover. But the no-strings status they've shared for years is about to get very tangled.

Jared Williams is the kind of man most women long for: sexy, successful, and ready to settle down. He knows convincing the commitment-phobic Calisa that forever is nothing to fear won't be easy—especially when his ex turns up with a daughter she never told him about. In a heartbeat, Jared and Calisa's passion goes from fiery to fragile. He wants to hold on to the love they share but is terrified that their next night together could be their last. 

My Review
Book two in the Edge of Scandal series is downright titillating. And emotional roller coaster which had me chuckling, crying, and wanting to smack a person or two.

Cali is fiercely independent and wants no man to restrict her, not even Red, her longtime friend with exclusive benefits. From book one I wondered how these two could’ve had such a volcanic sexual relationship, but never taken it further. Time and circumstances change all things, especially relationships.

Add in an adorable child, a sick uncle, and a best friend on bed-rest and the story holds just the right amount of drama and emotional turmoil to keep the pages turning.

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

I give this book five out of five shot glass shaped chocolate bars.

Spotlight: Only Wheat not White by Varsha Dixit #ContemporaryRomance #Giveaway

One randomly chosen winner via rafflecopter will win a $50 Amazon/ gift card.

GENRE: Contemporary  Romance

What if following your heart means failing your family? Eila Sood leaves India for the U.S., hoping to unite her family and mend fences with her estranged older sister. She soon learns that her sister’s intercultural marriage, which outraged their parents, has hit rock bottom. To help pay the bills, Eila accepts an accounting job at a strip club, working for the fascinating yet infuriating Brett Wright. As their friendship and mutual desire builds, Eila chooses keeping family peace over following her heart. After Brett misinterprets her fears and accuses Eila of prejudice, his ex-girlfriend steps in to offer solace. Eila realizes that whichever choice she makes will rip her life apart. What will Eila choose? Love of her life or a life ruled by tradition? Fall in love with love, in this steamy saga from a best selling romance author.



“Hey!” Eila flared. She heard Brett inhale sharply. He shot from his chair and was beside her in seconds. “What happed to you?”

Eila stiffly draped the scarf around her head again. “I got mugged last night.”

Eila failed to see Brett’s hands curl into fists. He was angry, very angry at the person who had done this to her.

“Are you okay?”

Eila merely nodded.

Running a quick hand through his hair he sat down on the chair next to her. “You are a trouble magnet,” he growled.

“So the mugging is my fault?” Eila’s expression bordered on incredulous.

“I didn’t say that.”

“No, you just implied it.” Eila shot to her feet. “I just wanted to thank you for saying a few things in my favor yesterday. And I’m sure if you hadn’t, I still could’ve managed just fine.”

“I’m glad you aren’t hurt.” Brett let Eila see in his eyes what he was really feeling. His blue eyes met her dark ones steadily. An intense emotion flashed in his eyes.  “Obviously your mouth is working, so I’m guessing you are okay,”

“You are unbelievable!” Eila retorted, putting her glasses back on.

The sneer staged a comeback. “I know.”

“It wasn’t a compliment,” she snorted.

“I know that too.” Brett nodded mockingly. “I have a job for you. I need an assistant.”

“Bartenders need assistants?”

“No, restaurant owners do.” Brett sat back in his chair and looked up at her. His face was serious.

Eila asked perplexed. “Who’s the owner?”

Brett watched Eila. She wore fashionable but conservative and pale colored clothes, her hair was always neatly clipped in a long, glossy ponytail but Eila could not contain her impulsive, unrestrained and unaffected personality. She reminded him of windy meadows, gusting rains and trees burdened with blossoms. Brett crossed his arms across his chest and the shirt tightened, which flattered his buff torso.

“You’re looking at him,” he said.

Dear Bloggers

I’d like to take this moment to apologize for not coming to your blogs as often as I used to. Life has gotten so busy, that it’s all about organizing and prioritizing and sometimes you have to make the hard decisions and cut some stuff out.

It’s not that I don’t like coming to your blog for the entertaining or informative things you have to share, because I miss that aspect. It’s all about time.

I do stop over every once in a while, but I usually don't leave a comment to let you know I was there, but I was.

Can I propose that we as bloggers get together and start a demonstration to the governments of the world so that time can be extended? It would work, don’t you think? Time was created by humans so it can be changed by us, too. 

Ah, well. Maybe one day.

I’ll keep catching you on the blogosphere, but not as often as I, or maybe you, would like.

See you soon (or not)

Nana Prah.

Review: Static by S.K. Anthony #UrbanFantasy

The blurb
Kevin Pierce is a teleporter, a ladies’ man, and a loyal friend. Or so he thought.

As a genetically altered Luminary, he helps the government bring down some of the most dangerous criminals. Not very challenging if you have his special abilities. But when a group of rebel Luminaries attacks his Organization the fight for survival begins.

One shattering event after another tests the depth of his relationships, his sanity, and his powers. Emotionally torn, Kevin must choose carefully where his loyalty lies. In the middle of all the unexpected chaos he gets the biggest shock of his life when he’s faced by a betrayal he never saw coming. Angry, injured, and ready to even the score, Kevin goes Static . . . 

My Review
I’ve waited a long time to read this story. The snark had me laughing throughout. All balanced with action, a bit of romance, intrigue, and of course kick assism (I know it’s not a word, but it suits the book).

It was great to meet up with Annie and Nick (I love him). Kevin brought a cool dimension to the story with his teleportation and new ability. If I talk about the events that unfolded I’d be giving away spoilers and I won’t go there.

I will say that Ms. Anthony has a knack for torturing a reader. Some parts were so sad I couldn’t believe she’d written it in, and yet they made the story flow.

I purchased this book from Amazon (on my birthday which was awesome).

I give this novel four out of five cupcake shaped chocolate bars.

Box sets…Yay or nay?

I love this series. Unfortunately the bundle
doesn't include
the first book - which is AWESOME.
 I love a great bargain and when I buy a box set of books I know I’m definitely getting one. But I have one tiny problem with them. When reading a book in the set it never seems like it’s going to end. 

 After reading for an hour I’ve only gotten through 2% of the series? What? So it seems to take me longer to read it even though it really doesn’t.

Even when I’m reading the most fantastic books in the world, I’m talking novels that will make me cry when then finish only because they ended, I still want to see that the book won’t go on interminably.

I bought book 1 first. When I fell in love with
 it I bought the box set. Best investment ever.
Back in the day, before I got my beloved Kindle (moment of gratitude silence), I had the same issue. While reading I’d always look to see how many pages I had left to read. Not sure if it’s a habit or an aspect of my undiagnosed personality disorder, I’ve extended it to my Kindle reading adventures.
Unless the box set contains a book that I really want to read and I know I’ll read the whole series, then I’ll skip the set and go for the single read.

What’s your opinion? Are you a box set buyer? More importantly, reader?

Review: I Dare You by Farrah Rochon

The Blurb

As a wild child, Stefanie Sutherland-Thomas never backed down from a dare. But the responsible, low-key role she has grown into as a widowed single mother and Army nurse has her feeling stuck in a rut. When her best friend challenges her to do something daring while on vacation, Stef picks up the gauntlet. Her mission: to have a one-night stand with a random island hottie. But Stef gets the shock of her life when she discovers her casual hook-up isn’t some random stranger; he’s her brother’s boss! 

Dustin “Hawk” Patrick knows a thing or two about taking risks. The ex-Navy pilot gambled by striking out on his own and now owns one of the fastest growing helicopter shuttle services in the Gulf South. But now everyone wants a piece of his business. Desperate for a reprieve from the pressures of work, Dustin uses his best friend’s wedding in Turks and Caicos as an opportunity to engage in a stress-free fling. Until he discovers his hot island angel is his best friend’s sister—in other words, off limits. But after just one taste of Stefanie’s passionate kiss, Dustin knows he can never let her go. 

When it comes to love, will Dustin and Stefanie dare to let their desires take control? 

My Review
I swear, every book in this series gets more amazing than the last. I was waiting for Stefanie’s story to unfold right after reading Stefan’s (her twin brother). Longing for it actually. A military ER nurse can only have a fabulous story line. And she does.

One thing I really enjoyed about this novella was that it started out hot and heavy, simmered for a while as a friendship grew between Dustin and Stefanie and then it blazed again. A wonderful romance.

I’m so happy I have book five on my Kindle to jump into.

I purchased this book from Amazon.

I give this book five pineapple shaped chocolate bars.
