RELEASE DAY REVIEW ~The Wright Brother by K.A. Linde~

Title: The Wright Brother
Author: K.A. Linde
Release Date: February 28, 2017
I'd dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?
Her smile was magnetic, and I just wanted to kiss her. I mean…I’d wanted to kiss her all night. But sitting there, in front of the last lit house, with Christmas music playing in the background and her smile radiating joy, there was nowhere else I’d rather be. That thought hit me so suddenly and I didn’t even know why.

I put my truck into park, leaned over to her side of the car, and pushed my hand up into her dark hair. She froze, silhouetted by the light display behind her. Her eyes locked with mine, green meeting brown, and her eyes widened with surprise. She breathed out softly, and I could feel her pulse ratchet up at my touch.

This was the girl who had pulled me across the room at Sutton’s wedding, like a magnet finding its pair. This was the tension that I’d felt when we first spoke. Here was the world of desire and lust that had clouded both of our minds ever since our first kiss.

My face was only inches from hers. I wanted to take what was mine. I wanted to claim her mouth and then her body right here in the cab of my truck, like we were young, wild, and carefree.

But, instead, I couldn’t seem to stop staring at her.

She laughed lightly to try to defuse the tension. But it wasn’t possible, and it was a feeble effort.

“Are you going to kiss me?” she whispered boldly.

I didn’t need any further prodding. I crushed my lips against hers. It was like striking a match. Our lips moved against each other, desperate with the need to get closer, to have more. She opened her mouth for me, and I brushed my tongue against hers. The groan that emanated from deep in the back of her throat made my dick twitch. Our tongues volleyed for position. She was just as aching for attention as I was.

I heard the click of her belt buckle, and soon, she was pushing her body closer, moving over the divide of my truck. My hands fell to her ass, and I effortlessly hoisted her up and into my seat. She squeaked in shock but didn’t break contact. Instead, she straddled me and let her hands wander across my chest.

My hands never left her ass because, damn, did that woman have an ass. She was grinding up against me, and I moved into a full-blown hard-on at her ministrations. She must have realized what she was doing to me because, when she swiveled her hips in place, she moaned against the feel of my dick.

In that moment, I didn’t give a shit that we were acting like teenagers, parked outside of a stranger’s house, bucking against each other for just an ounce of satisfaction. I was ready to strip her bare and fuck her until she forgot every word to every Christmas song and only remembered my name.

That was, until she rocked back just a little too hard, and a loud honk erupted from the hood of the truck.
The Wright Brother is the kind of book where you grab the bottle of white wine you've been saving, shut off all internet, put the do not disturb sign on your door and get ready to devour. Holy cow! KA Linde has always been a favorite of mine. But good grief she has given me a new forever book boyfriend. JENSEN. IS. MINE. You hear that, other readers? Back off. This deliciously, dirty-mouthed, seductive-eyed man is EVERYTHING that I love. Does he make mistakes? HELL YEAH. But like a grown man, he cops to them and wrights :) his wrongs.

Then there's Emery. She's so damn adult (for the most part). I'd like to be her when I grow up. She knows what she wants. What's best for her. And when to call Jensen on his sh**. Her temperament and levity, along with Jensen's charisma and endearingness come together and create a perfect storm of a wickedly sexy novel wrapped in tension and humor.

By far a massive must-read for me. KA Linde has hit it out of the park with her new Wright series and the set up for the next book... GAH! I cannot wait!!!

Happy Reading!

EXCERPT ~Blush for Me by Kristen Proby~

Title: Blush for Me
Author: Kristen Proby
Series: Fusion #3
Release Date: March 7, 2017
New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland's hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn't afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she's forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie hasn't been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn't think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he's got a handle on what life can throw at him and he's not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can't forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?
Damn Kristen Proby and her deliciously sexy men, quirky strong women, and scintillating stories. Well, I guess I really shouldn't be cursing her, she's delivered yet another freaking winner. Her Fusion series, is quickly becoming my favorite and that's saying something after her With Me in Seattle series. Blush for Me started off a little quicker and sexier than the other two books in the series. Mac and Kat have such a palpable chemistry, it would be categorized as suffocating if I didn't wallow in it and love it so darn much.

Kat brings a witty liveliness to this book that really had me quite envious and and in love with her personality. Then there's Mac... Sigh... I would fight to the death to call dibs on this man. He's just the quintessential book boyfriend. I might even go as far as to escalate him to book husband. That's a big step for me. My commitment issues are screaming, but Kristen Proby has somehow created the man I'd be willing to take the plunge for. Too bad he's fictional, such is life. But these two together, steam up the pages, and just simply made me swoon SO. FREAKING. HARD. at every turn. The cavity I go from their sweetness was definitely worth it.

Overall, a true winner and must-read. Kristen Proby proves once again she can do no wrong, and deliver the epitome of swoon-worthy and devourable books again and again, with Blush for Me. If you don't read it, you have my sympathies and angry stares, you'd be missing out for sure. As for me, I'll be idling by with my one-click finger read for the next in this saucy, sexy and sassy series!

Happy Reading!

“You look like you’re feeling better.”

Mac. That’s Mac’s voice in my ear. A shiver runs through me as I turn around and look up, way up, into his green eyes.

“I am,” I reply and take a sip of my wine. Was he that good looking on the plane? “I didn’t realize you were attending this conference.”

“You had other things on your mind earlier,” he says smoothly and motions for the bartender. “I’ll have what she’s having, and another for her as well.”

“What if you don’t like pinot?” I ask and tilt my head to the side.

“I like it all,” he says with a wink.

Oh my.

“Do you know many people here?” he asks, nodding toward Sally who has moved on to chat with another group of people.

“A few. I’ve not met most of them in person, unless they were up in Washington or Oregon. How about you?”

“Same,” he says with a grin. “This is my first conference down in Napa Valley. And it’s off to a great start.”

“Right.” I laugh and shake my head. “Dealing with a crazy chick on the plane is exactly the best way to start your trip.”

“It is,” he says and looks me dead in the eye. “She wasn’t that crazy. She was scared. There’s a difference.”

“Well, she’s fine now.”

“I’m glad.” His lips tip up into a smile and my stomach clenches. He has a dimple in his left cheek.

I want to lick it.

I take a sip of my fresh glass of wine and smirk to myself. Perhaps Mac fits the sexcation bill.

“What just went through that gorgeous head of yours?”

“I’m not drunk enough to tell you yet,” I reply honestly. Mac’s eyes widen briefly, and then he simply smiles at me.

“There’s a lot of wine in this place.”

“Thank God for that.”

A few hours later, after chatting with many people, new and those I already know, including Mac, he escorts me up to my room.


But when we reach my door, he leans in and kisses my cheek. Just the cheek. I frown up at him.

“This is supposed to be a sexcation, not a fucking dating game.” It’s a grumble, but I’m shocked to hear it actually leave my lips, rather than stay in my head where it’s supposed to be.

“A what?” Mac asks.

“Nothing.” I shake my head and pull my key card out of my handbag. “Good night.”


“Yeah.” I look back at him and sigh a little at the sexy dimple in his cheek and the way his shirt pulls against his shoulders as he leans on the doorframe.

“I’ll see you in the morning.”

“It’s already morning,” I remind him.

“It won’t be too long, then.”

RELEASE DAY REVIEW ~Dirty Filthy Rich Boys by Laurelin Paige~

New York Times bestselling author, Laurelin Paige introduces an all new Dirty Filthy Rich World, with Dirty Filthy Rich Boys, a FREE prequel novella - Available Now!

Title: Dirty Filthy Rich Boys
Author: Laurelin Paige
Series: Dirty Filthy FREE Prequel
Release Date: February 27, 2017
When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

Because when dirty, filthy, rich boys play, they play for keeps.
This novella is right and wrong in every way. Dirty Filthy Rich Boys introduces the Dirty Filthy Duet by Laurelin Paige. Based on that specific information, you can expect Ms. Paige to bring her onslaught of screwed-up, yet miraculously endearing/exciting characters that make high demands of their readers. They demand to be understood, when sometimes it's hard to They demand to be fought for, when you may not know which way to fight just yet. And they demand to be championed. Laurelin Paige doesn't write easy characters or stories. I admit, there are parts in this short story, that made me hesitate. Made me take pause as a reader and debate whether I should finish it. But what I know is that Laurelin Paige never fails to give me the story I could never have imagined, and never knew I needed. 

For that reason, I say give it a chance. It may test your sensibilities, but the flash-forward gave me all the information I needed to get me more than hyped up about the forthcoming duet. Sabrina seems to have come into herself, and I know she's going to be just as wily of a heroine as I like, and it'll be anyone's guess as to how this twisted web Ms. Paige has created plays out. It won't be easy, but I know just like this tempting prelude, it'll be seductive, trying, and most likely amazing.

Happy Reading!

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
