Russell!!!!! Yes yes yes yes. Once again, Ms. Bailey has given us a hero who has earned my heart. I have been waiting for Russell’s story since, Chase Me. We have watched Russell love Abby from afar. His friends want him to declare his love to her, put them both out of their misery and I thoroughly agreed with them : )

 

Russell has friend zoned himself with Abby, the love of his life. He believes he isn’t good enough for her, for you see, Russell is blue collar and thinks that unless he can provide Abby with the material things in life, then he is unworthy of her love. His Abby was raised in luxury and her money intimidates him. Abby is stronger than Russell gives her credit for, she is handling a situation that is breaking her down both mentally and physically. For reasons of confidentiality, Abby is unable to share with her friends why she’s working endlessly, both night and day.

 

Watching Russell struggle with hiding his love of Abby, being there for her and doing anything in his power to make her happy endeared him to me. My heart hurt to see him continuously fight those around him and his own pride as he fought his feelings for Abby. Once Abby realizes that she has feelings for Russell, she decides that for once in her life, she will go after what she wants. Russell doesn’t stand a chance, mwahahahahaa.

 

Tessa is famous for her dirty talking Alpha heroes and in Russell, she didn’t disappoint. Russell is an Alpha male with a sensitivity that made me fall in love with him from the very beginning of Make Me. The love scenes between Russell and Abby were heart pounding, erotic and sexy. I eagerly, impatiently, anticipated Russell and Abby’s story, not only was Make Me worth the wait, Russell goes into my list of top three Tessa Bailey heroes.

 

We catch up with couples from the other books in the Broke and Beautiful series throughout Make Me. Ms. Bailey makes sure that the couples are integrated into the story line without them taking over. It is why I love her books, we get to read about previous characters we’ve come to love without forsaking the existing characters. I hated for Make Me to end as I have such a love for Russell but it was definitely a very satisfying, sizzling and emotional read. Thank you Tessa, for writing such a great hero in Russell and ending out the series with a bang.

Caroline Preston and her friend enter New York City’s famous BDSM club Serve with the intention of checking out the debauchery within.  Caroline is a serious journalist determined to hate everything the club stands for.  She is driven by the fact that her brother wants to turn the family’s famous magazine into a read for the sexually adventurous. Caroline is not ready to see her family name become synonymous with sex!

 

Jonah Briggs is the proud owner of Serve.  He takes his job very seriously.  It is his job to make sure Serve is a safe environment for those who love to take their sexual proclivities to the next level. When he spots the beautiful Caroline at the bar he is drawn to her.  This is something that has never happened before and he wants to explore the reaction.  He will have his hands full convincing Caroline to give him a chance.  Jonah may open her eyes to a whole new world.

 

Tessa Bailey has the sparks a flying high between Caroline and Jonah in Owned By Fate!  I’ll be honest I wasn’t so sure I was going to like this book from the blurb.  There are a lot of BDSM club books out there today and they were starting to run together.  However, I was pleasantly surprised by Ms. Bailey’s first foray into the Serve world.  There is a great solid story behind Owned By Fate.

 

Jonah and Caroline have scorching chemistry from their first meeting and it only gets hotter throughout the book.  Caroline and Jonah are both proud people looking for acceptance so you can guess they are going to butt heads regarding the state of her family magazine and his club.  I found this part of Owned By Fate to be both intriguing and sexy.  It’s a compelling, delicious treat.

 

Tessa Bailey turns up the heat in the boardroom and beyond in Owned By Fate.

Series: Kinkaid Wolf Pack Trilogy #1
Published by Self Published Genres: Erotic, Gay, Paranormal

As the only son to the Alpha of the KinKaid pack, it is Evin KinKaid’s destiny to marry, become Alpha of his pack, and continue the KinKaid bloodline with full-blooded offspring.  But, there is one problem, Evin is gay.  Once Evin’s secret comes to light, his father banishes from the pack for being a disgrace to their bloodline.

 

To appease his father, Mason Thorne II has given up on his dream of music and to down play his gay lifestyle.  Instead, he is being groomed to take over as CEO of his families multi-million dollar company.

 

An unforeseen car accident causes Evin and Mason’s paths to cross.  Sparks instantly fly and a relationship evolves.  However, the past refuses to allow the couple to live happily ever after.  Will Evin and Mason’s love survive?

 

I found Bloodlines to be a great novella that grabbed my attention from the start and held me tightly until the very end.  The plot is filled with non-stop drama and passionate M/M love scenes.  The characters are very well-written.  I was hanging on the edge of my seat with pure excitement with the turn of each page.  I so love M/M romance where the main characters are not confused about their sexual desires.  Instead, their concerns revolve around how their sexual preference plays a key part in their everyday lives and the continuous battle against the obstacles they faced because of it.  I love the courage of Evin and Mason as they stand their ground as individuals and as a couple.  This is one tale not to be missed.

 

Bloodlines is the first in the KinKaid Wolf Pack trilogy and it packs a massive punch!

At the age of twelve when he rescued her from a tree, Cammie Masters vowed that one day Keanu Raine would be hers.  Years later when Keanu returns to town, Cammie is even more determined to stake her claim.

 

Keanu Raine is a member of an elite firefighter unit called the Smoke Jumpers.  Keanu also has the capability to blow out a fire, produce flames, and take them back into his body.  At the request of his grandfather, Keanu returns home to uncover who has been deliberately starting deadly fires.  Keanu gains more than he bargains for when he runs into a hot little red-haired beauty who instantly steals his heart.

 

Now, the killer has set his sights on Cammie, will Keanu be able to stop him before he claims Cammie as his next victim?

 

FireStarter is breathtaking novel filled with thrilling suspense, a host of magical elemental abilities, a blazing hot romance, and some very dangerous twists and turns that will eagerly have you turning page after page to see just how the plot will unfold.  Keanu is a handsome Native American stud who displays an alpha-like persona to the core.  Cammie is a strong-willed, fierce, and witty heroine who keeps Keanu on his toes.  I so love when the leading female is equally matched to her male counterpart.  It makes for some intriguing dialogues and blistering sexual encounters.  The couple’s courtship is swift and passionate with several comical undertones, which adds a spicy mixture to the suspenseful storyline.  All in all, a very good read.

 

FireStarter is book one in Elle Boon’s SmokeJumpers series and what a dynamic start.  I cannot wait to see what Ms. Boon has in store for her next installment.

Make Me is the sequel to Bloodlines and should be read in the order of release date.

 

Have you ever wished that your favorite characters storyline to continue after their happily-ever-after?  If so, then you are in for a treat with Make Me.  Evin and Mason are once again featured as the main couple in the second book of the KinKaid Wolf Pack trilogy.  This time around the threat to the couple’s happiness comes from a rival werewolf pack who is determined to overthrow Evin’s Alpha leadership of the KinKaid pack by any means necessary.  Evin is a force to be reckoned with when he discovers his home vandalized and Mason missing.

 

Will Evin be able to maintain control over his pack?  Is Mason’s life in danger from an evil foe?

 

Make Me is just as hot and thrilling as its prelude novella!  Jessica Lee has a natural flowing writing style that makes you jump right into the storyline and keeps you captivated into the final words have been read.  I am happy to see the continuation into Evin and Mason’s lives with book two.  For me, it is always a joy for the main characters in a novel that I loved to be featured in different plot rather than being portrayed as secondary to new characters.  The combination of romance, love, and suspense crafts Make Me a great read.  Enjoy!
