4 KINK Review 

Lauren Blakely offers a playful spin on forbidden romance between employer and employee aka parent vs nanny.  What’s better than a single dad?  A single dad who chooses to focus on family.

This one will be a satisfying read. It proves you don’t have to have sex written in every chapter to be a hot romance.  The Sexy One is guaranteed to melt your insides like a warm chocolate chip cookie.   

What do I love about The Sexy One? Abby and Simon’s inner monologue. It’s invigorating to read a romance when the characters exert so much energy denying the fixation they have with each other.  

The dual POV’s have a perfect butterfly effect. It makes your heart flutter each time you turn the page and read how they attempt to nip their desire in the bud.   It’s comical and quirky.    

Every so often you come across a moment of pure delight reading a true romance.  You read a romance where the characters try desperately to deny the craving and yearning to be together.   It’s like getting a peek behind the curtain in what happens when you refuse to act on your desires.  It’s the cold showers, the cotton underwear, the rattiest clothes ~ all in an effort to forget the pleasure the body wants.

Update your TBR list with The Sexy One and add a bit of sweet romance to your bookshelf.   It’s an addictive and sensuous read that seduces the heart.   Its sexy, modern and intoxicating with the perfect single dad.   


The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely ARC Review


From the NYT Bestselling author of MISTER O, comes a sexy new standalone romance…

Let me count the ways why falling into forbidden love is not my wisest move…
1. She works with me every single day.
Did I mention she’s gorgeous, sweet, kind and smart?
2. She works in my home.
Playing with my five-year-old daughter. Teaching my little girl. Cooking for my princess. Which means…
3. She’s the nanny.
And that makes her completely off-limits…But it doesn’t stop me from wanting her. All of her.


The other nannies in this city don’t call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention, the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around.

I can’t risk my job for a chance at something more…can I? But I don’t know how to resist him much longer either…

With all the heat, heart and humor readers have come to expect, this newest standalone will make you laugh, swoon and feel like you’re falling in love!

4 KINK Review 

Lucas Monroe is the textbook definition of a perfect gentlemen.  I am in love with the man who is there when you need him.  He is the one you call and the one who is dependable.   Maxie Sullivan married the wrong man. For years, Lucas has been living with guilt and a sense of loss because his heart wants what he can’t have.

Lucas has been forbidden to confess his undying devotion to Maxie.   Instead, he chooses to distance himself from Maxie but remain close enough to be available when needed.   Thank goodness he has the support of his best friends and business partners to convince him to follow his heart.     He has been unhappy and maybe a little resentful for years.  In those years, he has channel his frustrations into making his company successful and women.

While Lucas, Maxie and his parents have suffered a grievous loss, it’s one that has mark their lives with the ability to love again and move on.  It was crushing to see how much Lucas suffered at the hands of dubious acts committed by his brother and supported by his parents.

Opportunity makes it possible to profess their love to each other and they take bold steps to be together despite their family disapproving.   However, I did expect more action from Lucas  when trouble came knocking on Maxie’s door because of  her husband’s betrayal.  A powerful billionaire with the contacts and money could have done a lot more and quickly.

This series is swoon-worthy, sexy and thoughtful.  The billionaire men are vulnerable and smoldering hot while being alphalicious protective.  Going Down Hard is the perfect mix of passion and erotic romance.



“Something smells incredible,” Lucas said, his voice growing closer.

He entered the room, his big body filling up the kitchen despite its substantial size for a Manhattan apartment. She looked him over through lowered lashes. Though it was a workday, his wardrobe choice consisted of a pair of faded jeans and a black tee shirt with the Blink logo. He looked as delicious as her cookies, and she wanted to take a bite out of him.

Her thoughts stopped her in her tracks, and she felt her face flush. But his gaze was focused on the tin of treats, and he didn’t notice her heated cheeks or her traitorous hormones. He walked over, picked up one hot, melty cookie, and devoured it in one bite.

“Mmm,” he said, closing his eyes and swallowing with a satisfied groan.

Her girlie parts tingled. Yep, that’s how she chose to think of them. If she got any more specific, she’d be blushing more and in deeper trouble than she already was.

“Good?” she managed to ask.

“Delicious. You’re a woman of many talents,” he said, the compliment warming her.

“Thank you.”

A smear of chocolate sat on his lower lips. Unable and unwilling to stop herself, she stepped closer, reached out, and ran her finger over his mouth, transferring the chocolate from him to her.

She glanced at the gooey substance, hesitated a fraction of a second, and slid her finger into her mouth, licking off the remainder of the treat. Maybe it was her imagination, but she could swear she tasted Lucas on her tongue. She knew damn well she felt him low down in her sex. To hell with embarrassment, thanks to Lucas all she could do was feel.

His heavy-lidded gaze locked with hers. “Maxie,” he said on a groan.

Her breasts tingled at the low rumble in his voice. Like the other night, she was playing with fire. But unlike the other night, she was feeling stronger and more in control. Just the fact that she had a job interview emboldened her and gave her strength, more like the Maxie Sullivan she’d been before Keith manipulated and warped her mind.

“Lucas.” She whispered his name.

“Walk away,” he said, his body taut and vibrating with what she knew was the same desire shooting through her veins.

“I can’t.”

His gaze darkened. “Then run before we do something you’ll regret.”

IRRESISTIBLY UNDENIABLE by Zoey Derrick (@zoeyderrick) ~ ARC Review


Irresistibly Undeniable

Author: Zoey Derrick

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: October 10



Irresistibly Undeniable by Zoey Derrick


From Best Selling Author, Zoey Derrick, comes a brand new standalone novel about getting a second chance.

She was his best friend’s chubby sister.
He was the star football player.
It never made sense that he would want her, but he did.

It’s been ten years since Dyson Cole walked out of the barn after taking Ireland McKidd’s innocence with him.

Another notch in his belt.

Then he was gone.

Ireland has lost everything she’s ever cared about. She’s trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart, when the last person to obliterate it barges back into her life – literally.

Dyson has everything – money, power, sex appeal – a real life Adonis and women line up outside his door. But he’d gladly give up his whorish ways for the one woman he walked away from.

She’s wrecked, broken, a shell of the girl he once knew.

He’s incapable of ignoring what she means to him.

She’s irresistible.

He’s undeniable.

4 KINK Review 

Irresistibly Undeniably is a story that will leave you feeling good.  And it makes you anxious to read the previous books about Cami and the 69 Bottles crew.  While the previous standalones may be a bit spicier with D/s and ménage elements, this story appears to be less risqué. However, it does not lack the heat and erotic spice in the sex scenes department. 

When Ireland’s childhood friend reenters her life, determined to win her back, she long to discover why he left while wanting to rekindle the love she briefly had and lost in the same day. As a reader I did not get the full picture why Dyson’s family move away.  This bit of information may have proven useful why Dyson wanted forgiveness from leaving all those years ago.  Why he drop his last name? At one point in the story, I thought his family was in a witness protection program.  All this information remains  a mystery.

The emotional depth Dyson demonstrated toward Ireland ranged from sad to suspenseful. One moment we have a sizzling romance only to lead to a surprising twist. The plot of the story swiftly moved from rekindling an old flame to a much deeper anguish.  Ireland made me crazy with “running away” and “needing some time”.  We have a man who truly loves her, wants her forgiveness and shows so much realism with heartwarming tenderness. Don’t miss this sweet and romantic story about the power of family, friendships and second chances.

Book Review: THE FIX UP by Kendall Ryan (@kendallryan1)

the-fix-up-kendall-ryanFrom New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

My tempting, and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.

It’s not just that we’re friends, he’s also cocky, confident, and British, which means he’s a walking aphrodisiac.

But lately he’s been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I’m not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.

And then we start working together, and that’s when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I’ve harbored for him disappear, because there’s no way this can end well.

The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I’m stuck between a rock, and Sterling’s very, very hard place.

Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.

But I’ve been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I’m not about to be cast aside like yesterday’s underwear when he’s done having fun.

Sterling’s never been told no, and he’s not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he’d fight so dirty.

4 KINK Review

In case the cover was not enough to sway you, The Fix Up is a shocking sweet romance I didn’t expect with a dirty talking British lawyer .    I have always had an obsession with British male characters.  So, as soon as I heard about The Fix Up I knew I would be dedicating myself to a stimulating and spicy read.

The story centers around Sterling Quinn, who has suddenly inherited a million-dollar estate from England. To the world, he is a manwhore living the good life.  But in reality he is a dedicated son taking care of his ailing mother.  When news surface he is the heir to millions, he suddenly faced with the opportunity to take care of his mother properly.   But it’s just one catch:  He has to marry within six (6) months.

Enters Camryn Palmer, a public relations expert task to help Sterling find the perfect wife.  Suddenly Sterling and Camryn are too busy hanging out as friends. However, complications unfold as they throw sex into the mix.

Kendall Ryan has been treating us with sexy book titles about swoon-worthy alpha males for some time.  The Fix Up is no exception.  Since Sterling is a divorce lawyer, it’s no surprise the idea of marriage and love is a no-go. But he is motivated by personal reasons that makes him the perfect guy.  He stole my heart when he staged his apartment for the sole purpose of seducing Camryn.  What man is NOT SEXY when he is making dinner, dusting and vacuuming to impressed his date AND caring for his mother?

It’s simple: Go ahead and one click this steamy, erotic  page-turner.  Hold on to your knickers, because The Fix Up is filled with sizzling sexual tension from its first sentence that will keep you up in the wee hours of the night until the last page.  An awesome read.

I twist the doorknob, and finding it unlocked, let myself inside.

Sterling’s place is compact, but modern and classy. It suits him. After a quick glance around the living space, I spot him on the balcony outside, just beyond the glass doors at the far end of the living room. He’s facing away from me, his hands gripping the railing, his head bowed.

My smile from moments ago is gone. Seeing him like this—looking distraught—brings the reality of our situation crashing back.

Sterling suddenly turns and we lock eyes. A thousand emotions are revealed in his eyes, but mostly there’s anger. There’s also a sadness in his gaze that I’ve never seen. It’s haunting.

I swallow a lump in my throat, wondering what’s going on.

“Sterling?” I ask, slowly approaching the balcony.

It’s beautiful—plush pillows and twinkling lights, and a chilled bottle of white wine all nestled together in a romantic picnic for two.

He lets out a heavy sigh and runs one hand through his hair.

“This is beautiful,” I say since he hasn’t spoken, hasn’t even moved from the spot where he’s rooted, and his stony silence is killing me. “Are you okay?”

“Just fine,” he says curtly, his gaze looking past me.

He doesn’t seem fine. He seems off. Why go through all the effort if he’s just going to act sullen and withdrawn?

And what could have possibly changed in the twenty-four hours since we last spoke on the phone? He seemed so excited—like he hadn’t a care in the world. Now it seems he doesn’t want me here.

“If this is a bad time, if tonight doesn’t work . . .” I trail off, my voice suddenly shaky.

“The meal’s already prepared.” He brushes past me, headed toward the kitchen.

Unsure what to do, I follow behind him.

He’s acting like an asshole, and I suddenly feel so stupid for getting all done up tonight. I’m not going to stand around and embarrass myself by begging for his attention.

“You know what? Never mind. This was a bad idea, anyway. I’ll see myself out.” I turn and head for the front door, anger and rejection dueling inside me.

It takes all of three seconds before Sterling’s long strides catch him up to me by the door. His grip around my wrist stops me. “Wait.”

I turn and face him. I’m halfway between wanting to flee and staying to hear his explanation.

He releases a heavy exhale. “I received a phone call just before you arrived.”

With him so near, the combination of his clean soap and his spicy cologne intoxicates me. Memories of our intimate dinner rush back. But apparently tonight is not meant to be a repeat. Waiting to see what he’ll say next, I inhale and hold my breath.

When he doesn’t continue, I ask, “Is everything okay?”

5 KINK Review 

If you want dark, dirty and delicious, M. Never’s Decadent After Dark is your mecca! When I saw Jett was getting his story, I was all on it like a chocolate chip cookie monster.  We learn about the journey between Jett and London in a seductive and dangerous tale of dark yearning.  Jett is a hero to inspire amazing wicked dreams and London is the strongest female character who is not afraid and accepts the life she lives. After learning about her past, your heart will soar with her happy ending.

Whether you want to indulge in M/F/M or F/F, or a good ‘ole (insert spoiler here), Elicit will provide a boundless variety that will have you curling your toes and craving for more.

The best part of Jett’s story is the fact that you get to experience the before and after of Ellie with Kayne.   If this is the last of the Decadent After Dark series, I may be a little teary eye.

Elicit was amazing and delivered everything I want. It was an easy read and tailored to all the warm spots I expect to tingle when I read this series. Don’t miss Elicit. It’s filled with everything a dark erotica romance reader needs for a one-hand read.

Turn Over by Violet Paige Book Review


Violet Paige has become my go to author for sports romance.  It’s sexy, spicy, extra spicy, heartwarming and sweet.

With the start of Fall, it can only mean football and love.   What happens when a CMT songstress gets knocked up by ESPN’s resident hottie? You have a flag thrown on the play!  Turn Over is a steamy story of love, music and football.  In the game of life, it’s about career versus love.

When false claims of paternity rears its headliner troubles for Luke, his team’s front office call in a public relations liaison to help spin Luke’s bad boy image into a more acceptable and positive light.  After all, his job may be jeopardy.   One night, at a charity event he does not want to attend, in a tux he does not want to wear – He is hit with a bolt of lightning – name Alexa Wilde.

To the world Alexa is country’s reigning American Sweetheart.  However, Luke quickly finds out she wants to be dirty and capable of pure unadulterated lust-filled romps in bed.  And there are many.  As a reader, if you are ok with characters shedding responsibility, you will not be disappointed and very much aroused.   In an effort to keep their high profile image intact, they plot and scheme private trysts while trying to keep it hidden from the public.

When I started this heartwarming story, I knew it was going to be a treat.  Prepare yourself to be charmed and emotional invested.  You will fall in love with Luke and Alexa.  The romance is full of sexual heat and heart-stopping romance.  Turn Over is well written with the common theme of bad boy meets good girl and makes her dirty.  You have many moments of tenderness and dreamy love scenes to make your heart sing with happiness. It’s a feel good romance with some angst I didn’t expect. A great twist to the outcome of the story

It’s a story about the pressures of being a professional athlete and a famous performer.  It’s a page-turner to make you cry tears of happiness. I can’t say enough about the characters.  Luke is a total womanizer with perfect swoon-worthy moments.

SWEETEST TABOO by J. Kenner (@juliekenner) #netgalley review


sweetest-taboo-comp-10In this irresistible Stark International Novel, J. Kenner ups the ante on Dirtiest Secret and Hottest Mess, proving once again with the S.I.N. series that she “may very well have cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them” (RT Book Reviews).

All eyes are on us . . . and there’s nowhere to run.

Everyone has their own ideas about Dallas Sykes: He’s a reckless billionaire, a devilish playboy, a man who gets whatever he wants the minute he wants it. But I know the real Dallas behind the money, bravado, and power—and he’s completely, blissfully mine.

We carefully guarded our secrets, and in each other’s arms we sought refuge from our dark past. Our pain became our pleasure, our control within the chaos. But we could only hide from the truth for so long.

Now we’ve let loose our inhibitions and are ready to face the future. And no matter what people think or say, coming clean is its own sweet reward.

Sweetest Taboo is intended for mature audiences.

My review

Source: Advanced Reader Copy kindly gifted by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review

4 KINK Review 

The secret is out of the bag. And by now, as a reader you know the taboo subject is a “stepbrother” romance.  This series is so much more than a taboo romance between step siblings.  To fully understand the dynamics, I have created a family tree of sorts:

Dallas Sykes – Eli’s nephew adopted as his son

Jane – Lisa and Collin’s daughter until his parental rights were severed

Collin West – Jane’s biological father, Lisa’s 1st husband

Lisa – Jane’s mother currently married to Eli, 2nd husband

Eli – Lisa’s 2nd husband adopted Jane after marriage to Lisa and adopted Dallas, his brother’s child.

By law, the adoption of Dallas and Lisa makes them legally brother and sister.  There you have it ~ the beginnings of the dirtiest secret.

The mystery of the kidnapping deepens in the final installment of Dallas and Jane’s story.  While Dallas is busy trying to connect the dots, Jane continues to be harassed by a stalker who is determine to keep her away from Dallas. Since the scandal broke of their secretive taboo relationship, both of them are thrown in a social media frenzy while dodging the real secrets from their kidnapping past becoming exposed.

The woman who tortured Dallas and Jane in captivity is back.   Dallas created Deliverance to find the culprits behind their secret kidnapping while dealing with the scandal of falling in love with his “sister” Jane.  While Dallas and Jane refers to Lisa and Eli as mom and dad, it does become a little awkward to wish for a happy ending with these two.  The only thing to keep you from feeling guilty over the taboo subject is the idea they are not related by blood.  If you are okay with that scenario you will not have any problems championing their happy ever after.

With a J Kenner book, you know you will get tortured characters, scorching sex and the dirtiest talk imaginable.  Dallas is known as the KING OF F8ck after all.  So when you have sex scenes off the charts in almost every chapter, you will not be disappointed.  I only have one issue with the final installment.  The actions of the villain took place twice. (no spoiler zone) The first time okay, the second time not so much. It was a little farfetched for me to get on board with the events taking place twice. However, it does not take me out of reading through the suspense elements.

Surprisingly, we get another visit from Damien and Nikki.  So, I will repeat my mantra: there is no such thing as too much Damien and Nikki. 


Sweetest Taboo by J Kenner



S.I.N. Series by J Kenner




Dirtiest Secret by J Kenner Book Review From the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes the provocative first Stark International Novel—the beginning of the S.I.N. series.

It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.

The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.

Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.

Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.

We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.

Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.

No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter.

Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control.

Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all.

Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right.

Hottest Mess is intended for mature audiences.

Blog Tour with ARC Review: LYRIC AND LINGERIE by Tracy Wolff and Katie Graykowski


Authors: Tracy Wolff and Katie Graykowski
Release Date: September 27, 2016

From New York Times Bestselling author Tracy Wolff and International Bestselling author Katie Graykowski comes a sexy tale of love, laughter and lingerie …

lyricandlingerie-200x300Lyric Wright is an off-beat astrophysicist whose life is falling apart around her. After losing her fiancé to a hula dancing astrologer and losing her dress to an ill-fated leap of faith, she’s sure there’s nowhere for her life to go but up. At least until she sits down on a trans-Pacific flight next to the one man she never wanted to see again—the boy she’d lost her heart and her virginity too back before she’d learned that friendship and football don’t equal true love.

Broken down quarterback Heath Montgomery is on a plane ride to nowhere. Dodging the phone call he’s certain will end his professional football career for good, he might be Texas bound, but he knows there’s nowhere for him to go but down. But that’s before his childhood best friend and confidante plops back into his life wearing nothing but duct tape and a bad attitude. Determined not to lose her again (especially since he isn’t sure why he lost her the first time) and desperate to outrun his own shadowy future, Heath sets out to take Lyric on the ride of her life. Too bad she only dates men who actually know what her butterfly nebula is … and can find it without the help of a star chart.

Add in one passive-aggressive flight attendant with delusions of couture, a cherry red car with a crush on Neil Diamond, an over-protective sister with a black belt in Krav Maga, two parents determined to marry their spinster daughter off to the hometown hero no matter the cost, and a whole lot of lingerie popping up in all the right places at all the wrong times and you’ve got an unforgettable love story that fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson won’t want to miss!

4 KINK Review 

Lyric & Lingerie isn’t just another romantic comedy. It’s a fresh, funny and intelligent gift.   Lyric Wright aka Dr. Lyric Wright is an astrophysicist who becomes “fake” engaged to star Quarterback Heath Montgomery of the Fort Worth Wranglers as a result of the ‘most outrageous tale’ to help her farther recover from heart surgery.

We have a captivating romance with perfect supporting characters. I loved her mother, Livinia and sister Harmony. Heath is a childhood friend who dated her sister. However, this time around, the sister that is setting his heart ablaze is the Agent Provocateur wearing and very literal Lyric.  Imagine Sheldon from Big Bang Theory as a woman dating the sexy Quarterback. Now you got it!

Heath uses trickery to seduce her. Lyric may be the smartest person on the planet outside of Steven Hawking, but when she succumbs to the seduction, she is most definitely NOT a book worm devoted to cosmic supernatural black holes.

As I read this clever romance on a flight from D.C., I begin to shake with laughter of tears trying to NOT laugh out loud. The passenger across the aisle from me looks at me with a “WTH” look as if I am crazy. Lyric & Lingerie is sneak up on you funny. I have one phrase for you to check out: The Keurig Majora. If this zinger doesn’t seal the story perfectly to make you continue to read, you have no funny bone. Please feel free to comment and tell me that the moment when Heath and Lyric reconnect is the most epic flight ever.

about the author




Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.

Tracy Wolff also writes as Tessa Adams




Katie Graykowski.  I write romantic comedy with lots of heart. I like scuba diving, Mexican food, chocolate cream cheese frosting, movies where lots of stuff gets blown up, and sparkly things. I have a husband, a daughter, and three K-9 kids. I’d love to hear from you. Shoot me an email at
