coz-en (kuz-uhn)
verb
1. trick or deceive.
• obtain by deception.

She was named most appropriately.

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.

She has never failed.

A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.

Nothing is ever that easy.

Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.

The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.

But at what cost?

 

 

Who can you trust is one of the major themes in Bethany-Kris’ latest release, Cozen. Who can you trust with your heart and most importantly your life?

Cozen Taylor is the most famous thief in America. She’s looking to retire when she gets roped into one final job which turns out to be the largest and most dangerous of her career.

Sargon Makri is a hardened killer with no allegiances.  He is a lethal bodyguard who recently found himself protecting one of the deadliest criminals in the U.S. His life is monotonous until a sexy waitress upends his life.  He wants her…he wants her bad…it’s just too bad his boss wants her as well.

Cozen is a highly entertaining read.  I found it a fast, fun exciting romance.  I particularly enjoyed the thrilling intrigue.  The sparks between Cozen and Sargon are swift and scintillating.  I loved that Cozen is such a badass in her field of expertise. It was great that she never shrunk under the daunting circumstances of the heist. She was determined to never rely on Sargon to save her.  If you are looking for sinfully erotic sex, steamy romance and excellent storytelling plus one heck of a twist then Cozen is for you.

Series: Dragon Men #5
Published by Self Published Genres: Fantasy, MM


 

Colton Lanx was born among the stars.  Knowing of no other life Colt joined the Exploration Guild to become a certified navigator.  He loves to travel through the universe where he believes he belongs.

 

From the moment Colt was assigned to his latest posting the captain took an instant dislike of him.  Passing close to the planet Dragait takes precise calculations which Colt has input.  Apparently, the captain doesn’t trust his calculations and re-enters his own.  Colt’s father was born on Dragait and it seems the son will be dying there as the ship becomes locked in the planet’s gravity field and begins to break apart.

 

An escape pod saves Colt’s life, but it also changes his life in every way possible as he comes face to face with King Zeir Dragonfire.  Suddenly the navigator’s future is no longer among the stars. Colt will be forced to choose between what his head is telling him and what his heart yearns for…

 

Mate Call returns readers to the sensual, stubborn Dragon Men series.  Honorable, intelligent Colt has his life interrupted in ways he’d never imagined while at the same time King Zeir discovers his past was a lie.  Both characters have life altering decisions to deal with in this challenging drama.  The well balanced storyline keeps everyone on their toes.  Extremely satisfying from beginning to end, Mate Call has everything an entertertaining story needs with a complicated romance, hot sex, and a handful of troubles to overcome.  It took awhile for Mate Call to arrive, but definitely worth the wait.

ALPHA’S PRIZE by Renee Rose & Lee SavinoAlpha's Prize by Lee Savino, Renee Rose
Series: Bad Boy Alphas #3
Published by Self Published Genres: Erotic, Paranormal


 

 

College student Sedona is kidnapped while on vacation.  A vacation she did not get permission to go on.  As an Alpha’s daughter and a shewolf she is a hot commodity.

Carlos Montelobo is the Alpha of his pack but he’s not exactly in charge.  Carlos’s pack has an independent council.  This council takes it upon themselves to lock him in a room with Sedona…while she is in heat.

The council is determined to bring new blood into their pack.  Carlos’s pack suffers from dwindling numbers due to inbreeding.  The council have their plan and it doesn’t necessarily include Carlos’ opinion.

Carlos and Sedona are thrust into an intangible situation.  They try to fight their intense attraction but it’s futile because their wolves have decided what they want.  Is it possible for Carlos and Sedona to have any kind of relationship under these circumstances? Will they have the opportunity to find out or will the council’s plan interfere?

Alpha’s Prize is a hot paranormal erotic novel.  Things get heated quickly as you can imagine.  While the sex is sizzling, I enjoyed Carlos and Sedona’s relationship outside of the sex.  The pack politics were interesting but became derivative at times.  I found myself getting tired of hearing what the council was thinking.  The secondary characters were quite fascinating.  I wish I had read the earlier books in the series first.

Alpha’s Prize is a scintillating read.  If you love Alpha’s this is the book for you!

WOLF HOLLOW by Nikki JeffordWolf Hollow by Nikki Jefford
Series: Wolf Hollow Shifters #1
Published by Self Published Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Suspense


A REBELLIOUS OUTCAST
Cocky. Coy. Wolf shifter. Tabor is the hollow’s only half-breed, scorned and forbidden to use his powers. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there’s more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog to the council.

A DUTIFUL PUREBLOOD
Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a sexy, hotheaded half-breed.

AN ATTRACTION THAT THREATENS THE FUTURE OF THE PACK
Bewildered by the deceptively proud and surprisingly sensual Sasha, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can’t resist the charismatic half-breed even as predators threaten their pack and the elders pressure her to breed with a pureblood.

In a fantastical post-apocalyptic world, where only the strongest survive, sometimes trusting the heart is the bravest act of all.

Author Nikki Jefford takes readers into a post-apocalyptic paranormal world featuring sexy shifters, heady emotion and lots of pack politics.  Wolf Hollow introduces readers to Tabor the cocky outcast with a chip on his shoulder and Sasha a leader in the making and only pack pureblood shifter.

As the last remaining pureblood Sasha is a member of the packs’ governing council.  She’s expected to be a great leader and most importantly procreate with a respectable pureblood from another pack to strengthen the Wolf Hollow Shifters.  Sasha wants to become a great leader like her parents but she doesn’t appreciate the pressure to mate with a pureblood from members of the council and the pack.  When she begins to have feelings for Tabor the packs half breed outcast her heart becomes divided between duty and love.

Tabor knows exactly how the pack feels about his other half.  Tabor is part wolf and part wizard. He knows the council will never approve his and Sasha’s mating but he’s determined to find a way to be with the woman he loves.

Wolf Hollow is an interesting read.  Ms Jefford does a good job of creating this post-apocalyptic world where the wolves are dominant but secluded,  humans are the enemy, and evil lurks around every corner.  I liked both Sasha and Tabor. They definitely get off to a rocky start but their chemistry heats up fast. Wolf Hollow has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I like the fact that Wolf Hollow is unpredictable. I was never quite sure what was going to happen next.

NATE by Celia AaronNate by Celia Aaron
Series: Dark Protector #2
Published by Self Published Genres: Suspense
Celia Aaron does dark mafia romance like no other.  I’m completely in love with Aaron’s irresistible dark heroes.  I had the good luck to pick up the first book in Aaron’s dark mafia series, Dark Protector, on my birthday.  It was the perfect birthday gift.  I have been counting down the days  until I could get my hands onNate ever since.  In Dark ProtectorNate brought the laughter and lightness to the dark romance.  It was impossible not to fall in love with his cocky humor.

 

Nate’s story picks up five years after the events in Dark Protector.  Nate is now the head of the Genoa crime family.  He’s all set to weed out certain aspects of the business, work with the Irish, and fight a war with the Russians.  He never expected his life to be turned upside down by a beautiful woman.  He definitely didn’t count on the girl he took in five years ago coming back from boarding school a beautiful woman determined to seduce him.  Sabrina has seen her fair share of violence and bloodshed.  She is prepared to seduce the man she’s always loved and enter his dangerous world whether he likes it or not.  Sabrina turned out to be much stronger than I anticipated.  I really enjoyed her fiery attitude.  These characters were so much fun.  I could not get enough of the sexy banter between them.

 

Nate combines scorching romance, a possessive Alpha male, and white knuckle action expertly.  My only complaint with Nate is it was over to soon.  I think I could’ve read about this couple for days.  Nate and Sabrina are just so damn Hot!  Celia Aaron’s dark mafia romances are an addictive adrenaline rush and I cannot wait to read another one.  I’m excited to be including Nate in my picks for September’s Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Reads.  If you love a dark hero with a wicked sense of humor, danger lurking around every corner and titillating romance then Nate should be your next purchase.
