Frostbite (Last Call #5) by Moira Rogers

Kelsey Almeida has lived every one of her lifetimes in relative silence. Her voice is a lure, one that can overcome the strongest of wills. Magic has enabled the Siren to live a normal life…except when it comes to sex. When she’s aroused, no charm can obscure the call of her voice.

Frostbite: Looking for a partner immune to supernatural seduction.

Nothing pierces the icy cool of Cain’s armor. A reaper can’t afford to be swayed by human emotions, even if he still has human needs. Kelsey’s voice heats his blood, but it’s the pleasure of unraveling her secrets that threatens to melt his self-control–and his heart.

I liked this one better than any of the other Last Call books I’ve read lately.

Again…this is super short. Super short.

This story had more relationship development than all of the other stories with the exception of Kamikaze. I wanted to know more about the characters, especially Cain. As always, the limitation of the short story format and the bar only location really restrained the story.

Tequila Sunset (Last Call #4.5) by Moira Rogers

Detective and werewolf Zack Elliott visits Last Call to satisfy his need to dominate, but it doesn’t satisfy his unrequited love for a woman he can’t have. Still, he’s managed to keep his desire for her under control until a chance encounter in their apartment building sends him back to the bar for relief. Iris has spent the last two decades living a strict life of self-denial as New York City’s only demon social worker. She lives in fear of the power inside her, and the dark needs that tempted her down a dangerous road before. But love and need are leading her down that path again, and her only hope is to give in to the man she loves and trust that he’s strong enough to keep her safe from the darkness inside.

Sadly, I liked this one the least our of the entire series! Zack was a favorite character from a previous “book” in this series (Tequila Sunrise) and I was hoping for his story. But damn, there was too much anticipation, I guess.

So, to recap the 1st meeting with Zack: Continue reading

The Theory of Attraction (Science of Temptation #1) by Delphine Dryden

Camilla can set her watch by her hunky rocket-scientist neighbor who jogs past her window each day. She relishes each glimpse of his shirtless abs, and is dying to see more. But it’s hard to connect with a man who doesn’t seem to know she exists…

Ivan feels at home in the lab, not in social situations. When he finally approaches his attractive neighbor, it’s not for a date–he wants tutoring in how to behave at an important fundraiser. Ivan doesn’t expect the chemistry between them to be quite so explosive, and is surprised when Cami actually accepts his proposal to embark on a series of “lessons.”

Cami soon discovers Ivan’s schedule isn’t the only thing he likes to be strict about–he needs to be charge in the bedroom as well. She’s shocked at how much she comes to enjoy her submissive side, but wonders if a real relationship is in the equation…

I loved this book. Simply loved it. Review in process. I may edit this review later.

I’m having a problem with this review because I enjoyed it so much that I don’t want to sound like a gushing teenaged fangirl. Bare with me, please.

Sienna Jensen had no plans to return home when she graduated college last spring—after all, her dreams lie in California. But when she discovers her grandmother’s Nashville home has been foreclosed, and the new owner has started the eviction process, Sienna has no other choice but go back to Music City. And she comes face to face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she’d see again. The man who now holds the deed to her grandma’s estate.

Kamikaze (Last Call #1) by Moira Rogers

Zoe Bennett is an inexperienced werewolf in the grip of her mating cycle. With no pack and no mate, Zoe must brave the supernatural crowds of Last Call, the bar where your drink order tells everyone what you need. Kamikaze: Werewolf in heat, looking for a temporary mate.

The chase is on, and security specialist Connor O’Malley intends to win, if only because the sweet young woman at the bar looks unprepared for what the night might bring, in and out of the bedroom. Little does he know that, when he catches her, he may not be satisfied being just a temporary mate.

Very cute and very short story. In all honesty, this is little more than a single sex scene…but it is a hot sex scene.

As a freebie, this was wonderful and I don’t have much to say. I loved the connection between the H/h.

As a short story, it’s pretty well developed. The author did not try to shove a lot of plot into this very short product.

As a “book,” it leaves a lot to be desired. The story is well written with interesting characters. I would love to know what happened to the two characters when they left the Last Call bar…and that desire for more info does leave a bit of a damper.

Their Virgin Captive (Masters of Menage, #1) by Shayla Black & Lexi Blake

Brothers Gavin, Slade, and Dex, fall hard for Gavin’s new secretary, beautiful Hannah Craig. The oil executives know they must give her time to get to know them before she can choose one . . . who will seduce the virgin and keep her for his own. But when a dangerous predator begins stalking the small-town beauty, they work together to protect her, abducting Hannah and spiriting her to an isolated hideaway. Once alone with her, none of them can contain their burning desire. Though Slade and Dex don’t mind sharing, Gavin’s tragic past has put distance between him and his brothers. Now, they’re hoping that not only will Hannah love them back . . . but maybe mend their fractured family.

After overcoming her initial fears, the men teach her wild pleasure she’s never imagined. She grows closer to each, their devotion melting her inhibitions. Hannah finds herself embracing love with all three men—and hoping she can heal Gavin’s wounded soul. But her new found happiness turns to terror when her stalker finds her. Will Gavin, Slade and Dex lose their woman to a menace that threatens everything they hold dear, or will they finally unite to make Hannah theirs forever?

Now I’m starting to feel like the dirty old grumpy lady of reading, lol.

***Warning: dirty language ahead***

I was really excited to finally get a chance to read Their Virgin Captive. I mean, really really excited. A friend gifted this book to me and I literally did a happy dance. For some reason my husband found this both amusing and slightly concerning, lol.

Sadly, my excitement didn’t last too far past the first chapter. There was…just too much chatter about absolutely nothing and not enough sex for an erotica. I mean…this is a ménage! Why is no one getting DP’d until the very end?? (See, I told you it made me feel dirty, lol.) I was reading this like, “Why am I reading a ménage with very little ménage?” And except for the spanking at the beginning the sex scenes weren’t that great. Well, I liked the first and second ones a lot more than the final one. The final one felt way too forced (and it was the only one with DP).

Two Old-Fashioned Men (Old Fashion Man #2) by Laylah Roberts

Photobucket
Some of the characters from An Old-Fashioned Man are back!
Meet two of Heath’s brothers, Cam and Kent, as they meet the woman meant to be theirs.
Bryony Andrews has never had much luck-with men or jobs. She’s down to her last few dollars when she drives out to the Double J ranch in a thunderstorm to ask about a housekeeping job.
Cam is ecstatic. He thinks Bryony is the woman they’ve been looking. The woman to make Kent smile again. He and his brother enjoy sharing their women, and Cam sees Bryony as a woman they could keep. Forever.
Kent had sworn off woman after his last experience with a cheating ex. But sweet Bryony filters through the hard shell he’s placed around his heart.
Bryony’s ecstatic to have a job, but can she handle her incredibly sexy, handsome employees and their very old-fashioned views on how to treat a woman.
Includes things that may offend some, including light BDSM, spanking, anal play.

Well, I’m not sure what I was expecting. This is the second domestic discipline book I’ve read. It was…ok. I think was expecting more sexual innuendo, more impact play and more punishment.

It was a cute m/f/m story for the most part. The guys were overprotective (as expected) and the heroine was a damsel in distress. Not too much to work with.

The ex-girlfriend angle was…unnecessary.
