The highly anticipated and epic conclusion to the Chasing Red duology

"Red," Caleb whispered. "Do you know how I felt when you left me?"

I looked into his eyes. The emotion I saw in them, the intensity, and the tenderness filled up my throat.


"I felt ruined. Because, Red, every time you break me apart, you put me back together. And I always come out better than before."


"So," he cupped my face, stroking my cheek with his thumb. "Ruin me."


Always Red gives the reader an honest portrayal of the myriad of emotions we struggle with while discovering First Love.

Isabelle Ronin’s Always Red is brimming with poignant scenes that will have you crying one second and cheering the next.  Caleb is the man all women want to fall in love with.  His feelings for Red are intense and the way he expresses them will make you swoon.  At one point I was thinking, “Damn he’s good.”  How can you not fall in love with him?! I did.

Veronica is such a strong character.  She has such a challenging time overcoming her issues but she wants to so bad for herself and Caleb.  I love her boldness.  She does not back down even when people are trying to pin her in a corner.  The scenes between her and Beatrice-Rose, Caleb’s former bestie, and Caleb’s mother are my favorite.  At her age, it’s rare for someone to have the staunch backbone that Red has.  She is the perfect woman for Caleb! He’s a wealthy guy used to getting what he wants.  He needs a woman that will stand up to him and tell him like it is.

Always Red captures your heart and doesn’t let go.  Be prepared for one hell of a story, packed with romance and a bit of treachery.  Always Red is the second book in a duology you must read Chasing Red first. You don’t want to miss a second of this series.

Published by Sourcebooks Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

THEY SAID SHE WAS GOING TO BE MY RUIN...
THEN LET HER RUIN ME.


He had everything—wealth, adoration, a brilliant future. Until one chance encounter changed everything.
The moment Caleb Lockhart spotted the mysterious woman in her siren red dress, he couldn't tear his eyes away.
For the first time in his life, he wanted something. Something he knew he could never have.
The unforgettable stranger he dubs RED.


Chasing Red is torturous in a good way.  Author Isabelle Ronin’s Chasing Red is a sexy, angsty romance that leaves the reader begging for more.  Caleb isn’t quite ready for Veronica “Red” Strafford.  She’s a fiery woman that surprises him at every turn especially when she say’s no, which she does a lot.  Red doesn’t know how to take Caleb either.  It’s hard for her to handle his generosity and the wildness of his world.  Caleb allows her to find another piece of herself that she’s kept buried.  Watching both characters grow while learning about each other is fun.  Caleb and Red are two puzzle pieces that slowly find a way to fit together.

 

Chasing Red is full of multi-dimensional characters, some good and some bad. It’s fun finding out which are good and bad.  Chasing Red is quite addictive with its feisty heroine and fierce hero.   I couldn’t get enough of these two and their endearing romance. The cliffhanger is killer and will have you screaming for more.

Series: The Billionaires #2
Genres: Contemporary, Erotic, Menage

What do you do when you have not just one hot boss, but two? And they both want you?

What will it take to make her theirs?

Bayli Styles leaves California wine country behind for the bright lights of New York City, in search of fame and fortune. However, fame and fortune are a little further out of reach than she had hoped, so to supplement her meager modeling income, she seeks a hostess position at Manhattan’s hottest new venue, owned by billionaires Rory St. James and Christian Davila. Bayli gets much more than she bargained for when both devastatingly handsome and magnetic men make her blood sizzle…and offer her the guiltiest of all pleasures—themselves.

Bayli is the perfect solution to the two problems currently plaguing entrepreneurs Rory and Christian, professionally and sexually. She’d make the ultimate “face” for their current joint venture, but both men are thinking beyond business and waste no time seducing Bayli into their brand of double pleasure. In the end, the threesome will put it all on the line—their bodies, their hearts, their souls—either destined for failure, or for the redefinition of true love.

This is a standalone ménage romance with an HEA by Calista Fox. (Book 2 in the Lover’s Triangle Series)

The Billionaires: The Bosses takes the reader on a sensual journey.  Bayli is an ingenue looking to make it big in New York.  The chance meeting with Rory St. James and Christian Davila changes her life.  She is soon introduced to their high society world, their delights in the bedroom and oh how she likes them.

The Billionaires: The Bosses is a sexy tale.  Rory and Christian are an interesting match.  They are heterosexual but enjoy ménage relationships.  In their public life, they work well together as a chef and businessman.  The plot is interesting.  The idea of Bayli hosting their cooking show with Rory works well as does the suspense portion of the story.  However, it was easy to figure out who the villain was.  The adventure getting to the end was entertaining.  The Billionaire: The Bosses is a fun romp.

Format: Audiobook


 

Faith is head-over-heels in love with her boyfriend, Donovan.  But when she walks in and finds his best friend, Parker, in their bed, she assumes the worse and bolts.  What she doesn’t realize is that Donovan and Parker – brothers in every way but blood – are both in love with her and have been planning this seduction for months.  The two of them always knew they would end up sharing a woman, and Faith is the perfect woman for them.  Now they just have to be a bit sneaky if they hope to convince her to listen to them and perhaps even open her heart and give a relationship between all three of them a try.

 

Keeping Faith is seriously hot!  Author Kris Norris knows how to crank up the heat in this snowy mountain setting as two sexy-as-sin men put their hearts, souls, and bodies into claiming their woman.

 

Donovan and Parker are closer than brothers.  They were best friends as children and suffered a trauma that ended up linking them forever.  Though Donovan and Faith have been lovers for a year, Donovan has always known that in order for them to get a happily ever after, Parker would have to become part of their relationship.  Worried about scaring her off, he doesn’t tell her this from the start, which leads to the big misunderstanding in the very beginning of the book.  While it strained credulity that after a year of dating Faith had no idea Donovan and Parker were brothers (never mind closer than), and the Faith/Parker part of the love story wasn’t as strong as it could have been in a longer format, Keeping Faith works because the characters are charming and the sex scenes are seriously hot.  Faith, Donovan, and Parker are all likeable protagonists with good chemistry that makes the story move at a fast pace.  This is an erotic romance, heavy on the erotic, and Ms. Norris delivers.  Donovan and Parker utilize all their sensual talents to win Faith back, making this one read or listen that’ll keep you warm all winter long.

THREE WISHES by Sean MichaelThree Wishes by Sean Michael
Series: Rainbow Island #1
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: BDSM, Contemporary, MM

James, Guard, and Damien run a luxurious retreat where BDSM scenes flavor their guests’ vacation.  The clients request a fantasy and the trio set out to ensure every requirement is met.  At one time the threesome were lovers, but that was before a horrible accident left James in a wheelchair and Damien wracked with guilt.  Their love is longer a factor as far as James is concerned.  The other two are desperate to repair the damage if only they could.  Nowadays Rainbow Island is simply business, nothing more.

 

The first client they are expecting is Benji who’s been modeling since childhood.  Desperate to break free and start a fresh life Benji requests a master at tattoo and piercing to take control.  Simple if the master is strong enough to crack the stubborn shell the submissive has built.

 

As for the second fantasy Quinn secretly yearns to be dominated in a medical setting.  Ironically his partner Pierce is a doctor, but Quinn fears that his lover would be disgusted by his fetish.  Quinn is hoping to get the kink out of his system – with a stranger.

 

Finally, there is Alan and his longtime Dom Roman who has set up five specific scenes for the feisty submissive.  The scenes are geared for Alan’s pleasure.  Surely nothing can go wrong with the lovers exacting wishes.

 

The first book in the Rainbow Island series is a well crafted, intensely sensual storyline.  Three Wishes offers three stimulating fantasies and a snarled threesome relationship.  A clever mix of erotic BDSM and love wrapped up in Three Wishes.  All the hiccups, miscommunication, and romance lovers could desire.  Painful revelations and eye opening possibilities abound in Three Wishes.
