Wine Country is about to catch fire in The Billionaires…

 

Calista Fox has a hit with The Billionaires! Rogen, Jewel and Vin make for one hell of a fiery read! The Billionaires take passion to new heights as they discover the truth behind their family’s feud and their feelings for each other.  The Billionaires is an erotic feast! However, it’s much more than just hot sex there is an excellent story built around Rogen, Jewel and Vin’s sinfully delicious attraction and the emotional obstacles standing in their way.

 

The backdrop of The Billionaires is beautifully described by Ms. Fox. She takes the reader into wine country and makes you feel like you’re about to have the tasting of a lifetime. I really enjoyed Jewel’s fierce personality, Rogen’s sensuality and Vin’s uncompromising hunger.  Ms. Fox gives us three strong characters that are determined to fight for each other and everything they believe in.  Rogen and Vin will bewitch the reader as they seduce Jewel.  There are plenty of titillating sexual situations but romance is the star here.

 

I am Joyfully Recommending The Billionaires for the month of April. I cannot wait to read the next books in the series.

ROCK STRONG by Virna DePaulRock Strong by Virna DePaul
Series: Rock Candy #1
Published by Self Published Genres: Contemporary


 

Abby Chan is a rising cellist with her heart set on playing for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.  As a way to pay off her Juilliard School of Music education loan, Abby takes a summer gig playing the cello on tour with a well-known rock band.  Abby expects to work hard; however, what she did not anticipate is to fall head over hills in love with the lead singer, Liam Collier.

 

Liam Collier is the lead singer for Point Break, the world’s hottest rock band.  Liam is known for living in the fast lane by partying hard with countless, nameless, beautiful women.  However, that all comes to a crashing halt the moment he set eyes on Abby Chan.  Now, all he can think about is having a passionate, monogamous relationship with Abby.

 

Rock Strong is a sweet romance showing how opposites attract to form a fascinating, lasting relationship.  Abby is a total contrast to Liam.  Where Liam is outgoing and lively, Abby is aloof and quiet.  However, together they are a dynamic couple that will bring a smile to your face as you get to know and fall in love with them.  I so enjoyed watching Abby blossom into a confident, respectable woman who innocently drives Liam to admit his true feelings to himself and to her.  There are some rocky times; but, by the end, Liam and Abby find a way to overcome their obstacles.

 

Rock Strong is a great start for the Rock Candy series.  I cannot wait to get my hands on the next installment.

ROCK DIRTY by Virna DePaulRock Dirty by Virna DePaul
Series: Rock Candy #2
Published by Self Published Genres: Contemporary


 

Dominique “Nikki” Lorenz is determined to escape her past.  As the heiress to her mother’s magazine empire, Nikki is always in the limelight and sometimes the tabloid makes her out to be an uncontrollable, distressing girl.  However, with the upcoming release of her new shoe line, Nikki will finally make a respectable name for herself.

 

Tucker Benning is the drummer of a famous rock band, Point Break.  Tucker is flabbergasted and secretly heartbroken when his lead singer cancels their world tour due to his upcoming wedding plans.  With nothing to do and nowhere to go for the summer, Tucker decides to embark upon a spur of the moment sexual escapade with a beautiful, classy woman that he meets in the airport.

 

Whereas I truly enjoyed book one in this series, Rock Dirty does not work for me.  The chemistry between Nikki and Tucker is super-hot; however, I did not feel the connection between them.  At times I found myself wanting to hit Tucker over the head for his offensive conduct but in the end, he redeems himself in my eyes because he realizes his behavior was based on jealousy.  Add in Nikki’s mommy issues, and I am not sure how this couple manages to make their relationship work.  Nevertheless, their affection for one another wins out and they form a deep, meaningful connection.

 

Rock Dirty can be read as a standalone.  Regardless, of my less desired opinion of this book, I still look forward to future reads within this series.

DOUBLE TROUBLE by Erosa KnowlesDouble Trouble by Erosa Knowles
Series: Men of 3X CONstruction #7
Published by Self Published Genres: Contemporary, Erotic


 

Twins Blaine and Donald O’Connor have loved only one woman and she is Belinda Moore.  A negative event impacted their love affair causing Belinda to disappear from their lives.  Fast forward to sixteen years later, now Blaine and Donald have a second chance with Belinda and this time the twins are determined by any means necessary not to allow her to slip through their fingers this time around.  Will Belinda reopen her heart to Blaine and Donald or is all hope lost?

 

Double Trouble is the seventh story in Erosa Knowles’ Men of 3X CONStruction series and can be read independently.  The twins, Blaine and Donald, are definitely a handful for Belinda.  As adults, she does not have a fighting chance against the dynamic duo because this time around, Belinda cannot simply disappear from their lives.  The sexual tension between Belinda and her men is intense and mega hot.  While it was easy to guess the mastermind behind the trio’s troubled past, I still found Double Trouble to be an intriguing read that held my attention until the very end.
