Marcie Reynolds never knew that an incorrect number phone call could impact her life with such pleasure.  One minute she is leading very dull, non-existing lifestyle comprise of exhausting long work hours and much needed sleep; then, in the next instant, she is caught up in a very naughty love affair with a stranger over the phone.

 

Jonathan Sutton is positive that he had dialed the correct number; however, after a second try he gets the same sexy, sultry voice telling him that he has the wrong number; it was well worth it to hear her voice once again.  Without hesitation Jonathan draws her into simple conversation and things quickly heat up from there to the point where desire is the star of their countless phone exchanges.

 

If you are in need of highly sexual play novella that will have you squirming around in your seat with a couple who has yet to meet; but, are leading a very heated love affair then Jamallah Bergman’s novella is just what the doctor ordered.

 

Unfortunately for me, Sorry…Wrong Number leaves a lot to be desired.  While, the sexual foreplay is very passionate and lustful in nature; the interaction between Marcie and Jonathan lacks a strong emotional connection, especially when a third person is introduced into their sexual relationship.  It was just hard for me to wrap my mind around this act itself and I am huge fan of ménage a trois storylines.  I just could not see an emotionally connected couple handling the situation the way it was handled.  Nevertheless, I was able to complete Sorry…Wrong Number once I got pass my personal issue with the storyline itself.  Although, the couple does have a happily-ever-after, I felt the overall plot was all about the hook up stage and nothing more.

Get ready...things are going to get hot. Liz and Peter can't think of a sexier, more fun place to get married than the Greek Islands. And they're not the only ones looking for a steamy holiday, cruising into the sunset. Their friends, family, and even wedding planner and cruise director are on their own searches for some satisfaction on the waves...

“Rock the Boat”

Wedding Planner Gwen Austin has been single since the death of her husband a couple of years ago. She thinks it might finally be the time for her to have a little fun but it’s hard not to remember him as she arrives in Greece; it was their dream destination after all. This is her first destination wedding and she intends to make it unforgettable for the happy couple. Santos Michaelides definitely plans to make this voyage unforgettable for Gwen. Gwen turns him on like no other and distracts him from his true job. Santos has the power to destroy Gwen’s perfect planning. He is undercover on this trip investigating one of the guests for insurance fraud. Gwen and Santos spark flames aboard the Aphrodite. Can Santos find the criminal without wrecking Gwen’s perfect wedding plans?

“Rock the Boat” is a sexy story that revolves around more than just the hot couple. For Gwen this is about letting herself have fun again. She needs to realize that it is okay to move on with her life and share it with someone else. While Gwen and Santos both claim their fling is a no strings attached affair, it doesn’t take long for them to realize they may not be able to control their feelings. I liked this relationship. Santos is the perfect suave gentleman to show Gwen what she’s been missing in the bedroom. 

“Making Waves”

When Kendra Kirk and Flynn Kavanagh boarded the Aphrodite to attend a wedding, they were only looking for fun. How unfortunate for them to realize they are on this trip together. After all who wants to be stuck on a boat with the woman who prosecuted you for a crime you didn’t commit or the criminal who turns you on. Kendra was doing her job when she went after Flynn even though she thought the case was circumstantial. She hates how he makes the long forgotten places in her body come alive. Flynn can’t stand seeing the woman who ruined his life but he can’t seem to resist her either. What happens when opposing sides collide on a weeklong wedding cruise? The heat gets turned up…way up!

“Making Waves” is filled with steamy sexual tension. I loved Kendra and Flynn. Their situation seems so hopeless but the attraction between them will not be denied. Their story is filled with so much pain, anger and want. They have both been put in a horrible situation and watching them handle it is half the fun. When Kendra and Flynn finally stop denying their feelings, it’s explosive.

Heat Waves is a sizzling erotic feast. While the stories had their ups and downs for the most part I enjoyed them. I really like the way the stories were told. Both stories are on a consecutive timeline. As you read the second story it filled in missing pieces of the first. I liked this, however, sometimes I felt like things were gone over twice. I’m so happy the continuing story was all cinched up nicely at the end. I thought both couples were fantastic. I know this is an erotic story but I actually enjoyed the story behind these characters more than the actual sex. Susan Lyons brings the reader sweet stories with characters that are easy to relate to.

The Callahan boys have been ostracized since childhood by the town they live in. The history between their parents and their maternal grandparents is sordid and that relationship has deferred to them since their parents death. The boys were willed their parents land but their grandparents want it back in its rightful owners hands.

Rafer Callahan is known around Sweetrock as another one of those bad Callahan boys. He left town to join the marines after being accused of murder. There has never been any doubt that he would be coming back to claim his inheritance no matter the difficulty he has getting it. There is something else he wants that resides in Sweetrock but he knows he shouldn’t claim Cambria Flannigan. 

Cami Flannigan has been in love with Rafer almost her entire life. She even loved him after he was accused of brutally murdering her sister. Cami has complete faith in Rafer’s innocence and has always been willing to stand up for him. Now that she’s all grown up and living back in Sweetrock it’s hard to ignore her feelings for Rafer. One snowy night brings about a night of passion they will never forget. Will their night together bring dire consequences? It seems someone holds a deeper grudge towards the Callahan’s and doesn’t want to see them happy. This person is ready to take away whatever Rafer loves—making Cami a target. Can Rafer protect the woman he loves?

Midnight Sins is a spicy romance with a killer plot. I must say I really enjoyed Rafer and Cami’s story. I think they make a very special couple. Their relationship has tons of emotion and heat. I was absolutely pulled in by their feelings for each other and the heady circumstances that brought them together. Rafer is definitely an alpha male and he brings plenty of sexy to this story. I love that Cami’s no push over either. I found the back story to be unique and intriguing. I cannot wait to find out more about what happened to the Callahan boys parents and see if any of my suspicions are correct. There are several errors and discrepancies throughout the book. The timeline at the beginning is a bit confusing. I felt like I was missing something at one point. However, I don’t want to dwell on it too much. Yes, it’s bad that there are errors but for me it doesn’t affect how much I liked Midnight Sins. None of these errors seemed as offensive as some I’ve seen in the past. Rafer and Cami’s romance is hot, heavy and immensely satisfying. I am looking forward to the next book in this exciting series.
