Heights of Desire (Heightsbound Series #1) by Mara White @authormarawhite #review




A woman who has everything meets a man who can offer her nothing but trouble.  They meet and oh so quickly IT happens. I loved the way the author had the sense of taboo involved here. The characters were well written as was the language. I loved that I felt a level of intellect when reading Kate, her husband Robert and Sarah. As for Kate’s love Jaylee, he was written superbly. His language was real, not written in a way that reflected ignorance or an uneducated person. He spoke in some slang and was also portrayed with a level of intelligence. I have read a few books that have had really bad language and when trying to decipher the characters I felt lost. 
Kate Champion, a forty-two-year-old, married mother of two, leads an enviable upper class life of luxury. Jaylee Inoa is a twenty-two-year-old, second generation New York Dominican with close ties to the Heights and the gangs that run them. A very unlikely union is set up. In MY opinion Kate doesn’t recognize that her heart is with Jaylee. His love, trust, and most importantly the ways he can see their future is pivotal to my love for him. Kate gets caught up in him, there is a connection, she does things she never would have done before. Her husband Robert (whom I hate with all my heart) is a lawyer. It doesn’t take me long to see that all he wants is to win.  He is a master at staying cool. There are times when I was yelling to Kate in my head. It was so manipulating at times too hard to read.
Being a New Yorker born and raised I loved reading the scenery. I am so biased when it comes to New York based books. I enjoy the landmarks and the expressive people. There was one character Sarah, who was Kate’s college friend who was just that. She blew me away in every single scene. There were times where I loved her boldness. There were also times where I thought to myself, that is just what I would have said.
I love to read books that have characters that I relate to, am similar to, or want to be similar to. This book has everything I love. The authors represents all sides of the characters here. She has a great feeling and caring mom in Kate. There is the element of humor and that Sarah, well she is a queen to me. I cant even speak about Jaylee cause he is so real to me. Words can not describe how his loyalty took control of my heart. The Robert character pissed me off so bad, so that is the tell tale sign of a great author!
Kate grew up with a privileged family. They are so stuck up they wont even visit her in her neighborhood. She has a sister that she never sees because of the strain. Overall she is written as a very lonely woman. When she meets Jaylee it changes. She meets his family in a short amount of time so seeing the love had to hurt her, although she never said so. There is a loyalty in Washington Heights. When she learns that his father is in prison and he supports his Mom, Grandma and Sister Janinie, she falls deeper. I did too. His name is unique; Janet is his mom and Elias is his Dad so in English it is translated to Jaylee. What a perfect combination.
I urge you to read this book! It is loaded with angst, which I adore. When I got to the 90% point I was just looking at the darn Kindle. It was hard to see the ending, BUT there is a book 2 due out early this fall. Being I have a huge Dominican family and spent a lot of time in Santo Domingo and Puerto Plata I related so much more. I really want more of their type of family. Something I am more than anxious for.
So I had to search for a few songs that I think scream Jaylee to me. I also have a …

Tumbleweed by Julia Bramer #Review #giveaway

tumbleweed 22033057




I have to admit that when I read the blurb for Tumbleweed, I was NOT expecting it to be as dark. I love dark and this was NO exception. The author totally blows my mind with this one! The characters are wonderful but nothing compared to the plot. The story centers around one young photographer Hayley who I loved. She was free and very sexual. When her relationship with Mikel, a famous and wealthy Spanish soccer player goes wrong she goes a little crazy. Mikel was the catalyst for her change. It takes Hayley to exotic places. She encounters rich socialite Celine and her husband Jack Luck. I loved this part of the story!

HOT in here Blanche tumblr_m6eem8nNsk1qkuabbo1_400

After leaving Hayley goes to Egypt. She feels safe and has two tour guides both named Mohammed. She comes up with nic names by splitting their names up. Mohammed’s girlfriend is Nubiti, she comes back in a way I was not at all expecting.


Hayley learns so much about their culture, scenery and photographs many places. Where Hayley goes wrong is, in MY opinion, when she decides that the sexually repressed should be corrupted. Hayley sets out almost immediately to lure the boys into having sex. YES it was hot!

condoms tumblr_ll39ahfJh41qiy7sxo1_500

She planned this and has a camera bad loaded with them!


All the while the political corruption, Mubarak and some awful people start the darkness. Baba is Mohammed’s father and he hold Hayley and abuses her. It is dark, nasty, raw and unbelievable to read. So much more than I was expecting!

Nordic Lessons by Christine Edwards @ceerotica #Excerpt @BookieNookie



Nordic Lessons by Christine Edwards

Elora is a cultivated Londoner visiting her brother in Oslo, Norway. With her brother away on business, she decides to do without his permission and borrow his classic Jaguar to take in the sights. But when she pulls over to the side of the road to take pictures, the car won’t start up again. In a blind panic, Elora has nowhere to turn, until a warrior of a man stops to help her. A massive, handsome hunk of a man, clad head to toe in black leather.

Elora has never encountered anyone like Mikkel. As much as he frightens her, she realizes she is out of options. Then comes the exhilarating journey home on his custom ride, and Elora falls hard for her knight in leather armor, an alpha male eager to teach her the rules of Dom/sub relationships. Mikkel is head of his motorcycle club, and in the days that follow, Elora becomes increasingly entangled in the culture of bondage, bikes, and club rivalries. But how can Elora fully commit to a man whose world might as well exist on another planet?

  Soul Seduction

Excerpt:A surprised gush of breath leaves my lungs as his hands grasp each of my bare, chilled thighs to give a possessive squeeze before he dismounts.

“Enjoy the ride?”

I dismount with his assistance, quickly remove the elastic and sift my fingers through my braid, setting my red hair free once again. With my heart still pounding fiercely like a Japanese Taiko drum, I tell him—and I know I’m gushing—“Yes, there’s such a sense of power being on your motorcycle. Although I have to admit, I’m relieved that you’re the one driving. It seems like it would be far too much power for me to handle between my legs.”

Oh no, oh shit!

I watch his expression change the second the unintended double entendre leaves my lips. His eyes are smoldering, his breathing is more rapid. A perfect mask of male lust stares down at me. He’s absolutely stunning. His huge, hot palm reaches forward to glide through my hair, firmly cupping the back of my bare neck. He leans down several inches, closing any distance between us.

In a thick whisper, he says very slowly, “Oh, I have no doubt you can handle all that power perfectly, Elora.”

Muffled, thumping sounds of rock music engulf us as we become lost in each other’s eyes.

The heady moment is broken when he suddenly lets his eyes slide shut, drags in a deep breath, and changes the subject. “You’re proving to be the ultimate distraction, min skjønne. And I’m not easily influenced. We need to move now, we’re already over an hour late.”

Without another word, he grabs hold of my hand and turns to climb the steep flight of wooden steps. I glance out over the parking lot. Not a space to be had. There must be over a hundred people here.

He stops before the solid black door and turns to face me, his warm fingers threading confidently through mine. “I’m tending bar tonight, Elora, but I’m gonna place you right in my line of sight and introduce you to some quality friends. That work for you babe?”

“That’s fine, Mikkel.”

He lowers his body down farther to whisper against my parted lips, “My girl’s so fucking sweet.”

His girl? Yes, I absolutely adore that.

Meet Virginia (A Southern Series (Book 1) by Angela March @AngelaMarch3 #Review


review Image14 polaI really liked this debut; the solid plot, the characters and the family. For Virginia, her family is the root of all evil in her world. It seemed like I was wanting to know more and the bits of the past were given out in little crumbs. I always appreciate a long book and this had some meat to it. When Virginia leaves the city for her small town it is under the premise to help her family business. Structure wise there was a little edit needed for this. It seemed like she had plans but nobody knew what they were. All this poor girl got was opposition from all angles. She left her ex live in boyfriend Eli behind. There is a history there but it isnt too clear until about 70% but Eli was mediocre in the bedroom. Why was she with him? I dont know. So no spoilers but I never found out why she was with him. Ten years is a long time for that.
smiles question mark
In an all to familiar scenario, meeting Eli cause he is a contractor, now planning the family Bar Costello’s expansion, she meets Boone.

For the character of Boone, he was just right. I enjoyed his dialogue and even though he was younger, he had excellent communication skills. I dont know many men at 24 years old that would handle their business, working and their personal life the way he did.

Virginia’s Mom Sophia, her brothers Tony and Jimmy were all equally lacking in the communication department. All combined were the reason for Virginia to pop xanax and drink way too much Jack Daniels. I myself never have and yet while reading I longed to see what her fascination was with the amber colored liquor. No I never found out either.

smiles cocktails

Things were left off in a sort of cliffhanger, which I am not a fan of. Book 2 better come soon. If not for those kindle readers search the book for Boone scenes they are some of the juiciest I have read. Enjoy

Facing Me by Cat Mason @cat_mason_2014 #review



review Image1
“Everyone has a story my pages are just a lot darker than most.” 

Aiden Chesterfield needs Camaron. In his own book, that I really adore, he comes to the starring role in a good way. What I like about book series is the continuation of other characters. I dont like cliffhangers that leave you drooling until the next book. This is a series and so far book one was about Gray and now this is about Aiden, book 3 will be Hunter. That is the one I am drooling over and cant wait to read!

This book goes through changes within Aiden and Cam’s (Camaron) relationship. The entire back-story for these two characters is finally out. So we learn that Hunter was the protector of Aiden and the details will shock and amaze. Aside from this story, which I wanna squeal about, but I cant! What I will say is Hunter is my hero! He is all that! The best personality, sense of humor and he is hot. What else is there?  Hunter is my hero!

The Gray and Daisy are another couple that make me laugh. She is the funniest pregnant girl ever! Its been years for me and I dont remember the whole hormone thing but I laughed for her!

The plot for this take a few twisting turns that I think the author likes for shock value! There is  a threat of course Tad is looming. WOW another shocker with that. Just read it.

Seriously show Hunter some love! We want Chase we want CHASE! CHASE and HUNTER please and TY

Now for some quotes that I deem necessary to post!

“Now that it’s done, can you tell me why orange blossoms?” Chase asks, walking in the room with ointment and bandages. “Orange blossoms mean eternal love, I googled it  location 294
Cunter Cunterfield?” Hunter jumps to his feet  Well, it’s ‘Fill her ass Friday’ here, let me make you purr.” location 665

 Here’s the married spooner to sing some sappy shit to his wife.”  Hunter shouts into the mic. Jumping down location 760

“Careful, Cunter, I may have to enforce a bacon ban while on the bus.” I say, standing up from my seat.  location 1475

NOW for title headers this is the absolute best!

Grand Theft Pork And Fork Stabbings! News At Eleven.Read more at location 2257
Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one and some of them just fucking stink.” Cam shrugs,location 2332

“Even though I know he’s straight and that Henry is fuckin’ with him…  I still gotta say Hunter isn’t helpin’ his case by runnin’ after Henry, begging for a blowjob, while wearing a bikini top.  When a girl finally nails him to the wall, I’m going to enjoy watchin’ this shit play out.” Aiden laughs, location 2464

“Get my ass out of Buzzkill USA, and take me to Macon, Big Man.  I’m cravin’ peaches, and not the kind from fuckin’ trees.” “Macon rhymes with bacon bitches, now bend over and touch your toes I’m goin’ in with dry hose!” location 2585

Karma by Nikki Sex #Review @NikkiSexAuthor


Karma 18274130

best of the yearreview Image1

It’s books like this make me wanna scream 5+stars unbeatable nothing better #teamAndre For starters this book shows a lesson in basic respectability. When Marcy sees the $100 bill on the floor of the casino her mind goes into overdrive. Off the bat she says she is a single Mom, has a loser ex husband, is basically living hand to mouth, and has the decency to remember her upbringing and tell the Texan cowboy he dropped it. When he tells her that he wishes it was the only thing he lost at the casino he tells her that this is a reward for being honest. She is floored because that is a lot of money for a casino worker. We learn that author creates Marcy as a good girl who lives by the rules.

Karma Quotes-3

That said she is thankful for the little she has and he daughter Katie. I love the way the author creates Marcy and then goes further to explain things about her and Vegas. So we know in Vegas it is not easy for a divorced Mom to find a cheaper place to live or even a room mate that doesnt have a drug problem, is a stripper, or a prostitute. All of this starts a SLOW moving chain of events in Marcy’s life. Just think to yourself how many times you heard “Your mother raised a great boy, girl, insert name here**” THAT is Marcy and she is seemingly fine with the bad hand she is dealt. She is thankful she had a great Mom and since cancer took her Marcy has tried to rebound. She is grateful for her child even though Trent (insert every bad name for a penis you can =here) is a loser in every way imaginable, he gave her Katie.

  1. (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

There is the next character that I LOVE and now I will explain Andre Chevalier. He is a dream, older, built, sophisticated man speaking with a French accent while inserting moi wherever he can. That alone just makes irresistible in every way. This man can charm your panties right off you before you are aware that they are falling down you leg. For this character I will use the word PERFECTION. Why? well he is a relationship and sexual counselor. Yes he knows a woman’s body and he teaches couples what is wrong with their sex life, love life, and shows them how to fix it. He does have another power aside from melting panties, he has the greatest intuition ever. He meets Marcy and his mind goes to his security expert and friend Mike Thompson. He thinks to himself, Mike and Marcy would be great. Then he thinks their names sound good together. He immediately decides to offer Marcy a job, this is the dream job she has always wanted so she is given a time and told to call by 9am and if not the job isnt hers. He doesnt really need her. He has a job but more one he has created for her. He seems in her a woman who needs a break. Andre wants Mike, his security team leader to interview and approve Marcy. Andre is so confident that Mike will be smitten with Marcy. I was too. That is the best part of this story!

My Andre

hottie olivier


My Mike

hottie jason statham images (2)


and last is my Marcy




NOW for Mike. He lost his wife before they were able to have a child to cancer. He is extremely focused on work. He is a great guy, great brother, uncle and most of all son. Another spoiler her- his mother is treated well. So you know if they treat their mother well they will do the same for a wife. hhmmmm Trent never saw his mother, she lived in Florida and he could care less. Tells a lot about his character.

bad boy words

I loved every single page of this book. I want to scream about the “lessons” that Andre teaches Marcy, but it MUST be read. If ever there was a book that has great lessons for both men and woman this is it. I want to say that one little choice by Marcy starts a slow moving chain of events that creates the BEST book for me this year. I want everyone to read it. It has the relationships, the lessons in sex, the steam, the love and most of all the KARMA.

Beyond Repair by Chelsea Camaron (Daddys Girls series) @chelseacamaron #review


I loved this series. The first book was just the beginning. The second Salvaged was so emotionally charged. I felt it for weeks after I was done. Full Throttle was a little edgy and more dram than the others. Now I get Beyond Repair and this was the steamiest work that Chelsea Camaron has produced. I know I read and devour all of her books. So The ending of the last left us thinking about Harrison (Harry) it left an awkward pause. Now that being said, I knew the next was going to feature my Harry. BINGO here he is. Harry’s entire past comes out with the hauntings and all. So he is not running away as much as starting over.

When things ended with Tiffany it was dished out sort of one sided. I will say when she shows up in this book it didn’t take long for me to see redemption. I knew her acting the way she did was not her, the real Tiffany. I have had all these characters in my head for all these books and I know them. Therefore I saw redemption and Tiffany hooking up. It was a feeling that I had from Full Throttle, I sort of knew that this Southern Belle was not evil.

It was very deep when Harrison was involved with Sophia. I know for a fact the surface was for display, and there was a lot underneath on both parts. A big reveal there too. I totally got Sophia and why she never wanted to get involved with anyone. My heart broke for her after the reveal too. Not going to say a word other than unexpected!


What happens between these two people is deep. This is her most erotic work ever. I will swoon over Harry for many months to come.The best part and I am NOT sorry if it is a spoiler but there are piercings involved. YEP not only Harry, but Tiffany too. Scream a four letter word with me! I was blown away by this one!



I know you will all totally gobble this up and I am thrilled to call Chelsea a sister and friend. So please support her and read the books, all of them! When you do post a review and if you tweet me the review I will do something special for you!

Unscrupulous The Manhattanites by Avery Aster #review @averyaster


This is the second in the Manhattanites series. The book states it is a stand alone DONT believe it. You MUST read book 1. Dont cheat yourself and skip it. I am screaming it!

03a5a-smiley_megafon_zpsfd3433d5 ]

So here I go…onto the reasons why I love Warner Truman. He is one of the richest men on the planet who has a good upbringing. Surprise surprise, no divorce, no abuse, and no drama. That is refreshing. So this spa and hotel  mogul has a past relationship that is sad, but turns him into a charity philanthropist.  No spoilers.  

At the end of book 1 he encounters Taddy Brill. He knows Mademoiselle Red. What he does not know is that she is Taddy. Then bam bingo he is hooked. He goes a long time sniffing for the tuberose scent. When he snuffs he out OMG! She is stunning, and very confident. Taddy Brill is under Warner’s skin. He wants her and he is determined to get her. 


What I love is the way that Taddy is described and written. She is an amazing woman who is so strong and independent  You will love her even more when you peel back all of those layers. It is a very deep and emotional book. This woman is a fierce friend who will stop at nothing to help Lex, Vive and Blake. She is the most loyal boss to Kiki her assistant. That is the other reason I love her. The tale of Kiki is almost as good as the way she cares for Birdie, Lex’s Mom. 99297-bigswoon lots of steam

The next book better come fast because this series is so hot it is a best seller for sure. The romance and sex Oh my! It is naughty and romantic at the same time. It is thought provoking in a very good way!
