The first book I’ve read by Kylie Scott and definitely, not the last. 

25671827Weddings are supposed to be happy occasions. A day where two souls pledge their love and fidelity before their family and friends. For most people, that is the case–not for Lydia Green. Moments before she was to say “I do,” a video of her soon-to-be-husband in an uncompromising position appeared anonymously on her cell phone. 

Vaughan Hewson hadn’t expected to find a disheveled run-away bride crying in his bathtub, but then again, life had certainly thrown him some curve balls. Sexually attracted to the stranger and rather intrigued, Vaughn had no idea he’d just met the one woman who would claim his heart.

Dirty is book one in the Dive Bar Series written by Kylie Scott. It’s so good. So raw. So emotional. So funny. And..oh so dirty! Vaughn and Lydia’s chemistry is combustible. This story will keep you up at night eager to find out what will happen next. The characters are screwed up and dysfunctional, yet totally loveable. I can’t say enough good about this contemporary romance. It had it all.

Happy Reading!

THE DUKE WHO RAVISHED ME

Author: Diana Quincy

Pub Date: April 17, 2018

Publisher: Random House Publishing Group-Loveswept

Romance: Historical Romance

Synopsis:

Adam Fairfax, the Duke of Sunderford was known for his sexual transgressions. He cared little for meaningful relationships. TheDukeWhoRavishedMe-FINAL-e1523924309831Instead, he was content with his devil-may-care lifestyle. Imagine his surprise, when the unexpected happened. The last thing anyone, including “Sinful Sunny,” expected was that he’d lose his heart to twin seven-year-old girls their strong-willed governess, a woman with a secret past.

 My thoughts:

In my opinion, THE DUKE WHO RAVISHED ME, is a story of hope. Reader’s first introduction to Adam Fairfax is as an excessively spoiled duke with little regard for anything but immediate gratification. As the story evolves, Ms. Quincy exposes the inner turmoil of this broken man. Perhaps, his biggest secret being that he has a heart. Isobel Finch is a multi-facet woman hiding a huge secret. Seemingly rigid and stern, I believe that Adam was the perfect match for her. Their seething banter and highly sexual chemistry was bound to implode. And, it did.

Happy Reading!

THIRSTY

Author: Mia Hopkins

Pub Date: March 13, 2018

Publisher: Random House Publishing Group-Loveswept

Romance: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

Life hasn’t been kind to Salvador “Sal” Rosas, aka “Ghost.” 9780525478638As a gangster, “Ghost” has paid the price for a life on the streets, spending most of his time taking part in criminal activities which rewarded him with five years of imprisonment. Now released from prison, Sal longs to retire into a life away from the gang. Given a new opportunity to learn the craft of brewing along with a chance at happiness with the one woman who owns his heart, Vanessa Velasco, Sal is in for the fight of his life.

My thoughts:

Thirsty is the first book in Mia Hopkins Eastside Brewery series. Written in first person point-of-view, Ms. Hopkins, treats her readers to the intimate thoughts of Salvador Rosas. Raw and emotional, I found this novel to be enthralling. When viewed through Sal’s eyes, readers get the unique opportunity to see the epitome of a man. Strong. Tough. Hard. Tender. Anxious. Scared. All facets of Salvador Rosas were stripped bare.

Happy Reading!

My thoughts:

Well-known for her erotic romances, Opal Carew excels at writing a torrid story of sexual domination. Any reader that enjoys second chance romance may want to consider HIS TO COMMAND. Hot. Steamy. Sinful. HIS TO COMMAND is a story about redemption and the emotional journey to trust again.

AFTERBURN/AFTERSHOCK is a contemporary romance overflowing with intense passion. Available individually or as a conveniently combined book bundle, readers will delight in this powerfully seductive romance. Believe me-you won’t want to put this sizzler down.

AFTERBURN/AFTERSHOCK features the story of Gianna Rossi, a strong-willed businesswoman determined to make a name for herself. A lot changed for Gianna in two short years-she’d obtained her dream job and she’d lost hope in ever laying her eyes on Jackson “Jax” Rutledge again. SylviaDay_2n1-284x450On the cusp of securing a major network deal, Gianna’s job is in peril after Jax walks in on her business deal. Sparks fly and their chemistry oozes off the page.

Not only do I believe Sylvia Day is a master storyteller, but apparently, Passionflix does, as well. If you’ve never heard of this movie channel that features romances based on popular best-sellers, do yourself a favor and check it out. It’s a romance lover’s dream come true. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. In the few short months since its inception, Passionflix has produced both AFTERBURN/AFTERSHOCK and HOLLYWOOD DIRT, penned by Alessandra Torre.

Regardless if you read or watch AFTERBURN/AFTERSHOCK, this love story is 5-stars all the way. My advice would be to enjoy the juicy read and then indulge in the steamy video version. How can you possibly resist double the deliciousness?

Happy reading! Happy viewing!
