Alice is on her way home after leaving her family when she meets him. The man who kidnaps her and locks her in the basement. While she’s losing her will to survive, we meet the rest of her family. They have no idea where she is. Bodine is our main heroine. She finds the first body and soon the killer sets his sights on her …
This is such a mixed book for me. On one hand, I love romantic suspense. I was heartbroken reading Alice’s story. Bodine’s story is more hopeful. She reunites with a childhood crush and the romance between them is beautiful. They have great chemistry. The problem for me, is that there are too many stories going on. There’s Alice. The killer has a few scenes. Bodine and Callen. Her brother and his romantic interest. The mother and grandmother have big scenes. It split my focus between all the stories and things get muddled. I am also surprised by the head hopping. It threw me out of the story a few times. The twists are also predictable. Even with that I HAD to finish the book. I HAD to know what happened to Alice. Her story is just heart wrenching! I’m also really glad Bodine and Callen found their happy ending. This is an intense romantic suspense that I would highly recommend.
Casey is a detective but she has a secret, she's killed a man.
That's the opening line of the blurb. How awesome does that sound? I couldn't wait to read this book. Casey and her friend, Diana are both in the cross hairs of dangerous. Diana finds out about this town that is in the middle of nowhere, not on any map, and is supposed to be for people who want to dissappear. When they arrive, they find out a detective is just what they needed because there's a killer on the loose. Who's telling the truth? Are these residents victims or criminals?
This book is told from the point of view of Casey and I think that really brings the mystery to a great peek. She has no idea who to trust and everyone, EVERYONE, has a secret. Even the hot sheriff that is both annoying and compelling. There's a sweet romance between them that I wish became a bit more heated. There are a couple of things that Casey does that made me roll my eyes. It's the only reason for not getting 5 stars. She's a cop with a traumatic history some of her reactions to things just don't make sense such as the guy following her in the parking lot. She assumed and ignored, really?! There is so much amazing in this book though. Rockton is such an interesting idea. I love the characters, they all have depth and secrets and shadows. The mystery is fantastic! I was stuck between two characters on who is the killer. Luckily, it is one of the two.
If you love romantic suspense then City of the Lost is going to be a highly recommended read!
Death by dick? Really? I couldn’t stop the giggle. Then I read the blurb and I HAD to read this book!
Kyler has an abusive father and ends up running from the law. He thinks he killed a hooker and the FBI thinks he’s a terrorist. Kyler ends up in the Cox Club. The sexy construction worker aka undercover FBI agent Seamus is on his tail. Literally. A romance is brewing that may compromise everyone’s safety.
This is the second book in the series. It can be read a standalone but I highly recommend the first book, The Devil’s Cum in His Eye. That said, wow! Just wow! Death by Dick blew me away! I instantly liked Kyler. He’s been through a lot in his young life. My heart broke for him. Seamus, the gorgeous redhead with the adorable funny father, is an instant love for me too. I like how they had the attraction at the beginning but there’s a beautiful slow build up as they get to know each other. When the romance switches to sex … so. Freaking. Hot! Add that to the mystery of who the real terrorist is. I had a suspicion and I was correct but it was awesome how it all unfolded.
If you like sexy mystery with lots of hot nude guys and action, you have to read Death by Dick. Seriously, read this book. That orgasmic rating is no lie.

Widowhood is not quite what Sarah, former Lady Northenly, expected. A comfortable pension and quiet retirement seems attractive after ten years of staid and childless marriage, but estate solicitor William Burke has other ideas. Marrying again and to a commoner such as Burke are both out of the question until a mysterious death and attempted poisoning throw Sarah and William closer together than either one had planned.
This is an interesting period piece that cleverly illustrates the complexities of class distinction and the workings of estate law in a time gone by. Add in a little murder mystery, a heroine who is no shrinking violet, and an intelligent hero with experience in both the bedroom and the courtroom, you have a rather fresh take on a typically predictable and straight-laced historical romance. While the story is intriguing, some of the language is puzzling, particularly in the bedroom scenes where the outcome is obvious but the 'action' curiously choppy. However, readers can overlook this if sizzling graphical sex isn't their thing; and since this is the kick-off installment of a series, we may yet see more titillating escapades from what is shaping up to be an unusual crime-solving duo.
Stay tuned for the next exciting episode, same time, same channel!
This is the third book in the series but it can be read as a stand alone. Dan Stagg has become a victim of the war on terror but he wakes up and it’s placed on a top-secret mission ...
This is my first time reading this series and it starts with Dan in the news. A victim in a terrorist attack but he doesn’t find himself in heaven or hell. Instead he’s in a hospital bed with his sexy nurse Luiz. They have a great repertoire. I instantly like Dan. Not just because he’s a soldier and a hero but his personality. There is a bit of backstory glazed over from the previous books but not reading them didn’t deter from this story in any way. The romance between Luiz and Dan is actually glossed over and I see why. He isn’t the main focus, actually romance isn’t the main focus at all in this story. It’s pretty much just sex with Luiz. There’s also Merek and Reeve and Kieran and Jackson and Oz and Joshua and Dakota and Lukas and they hinted at Oliver. Wow, this guy has a ridiculous amount of stamina. Dan had a plethora of sex partners but they are all cardboard, which is a shame because Dan himself has so much personality. The sex wrestling is pretty hot though.
The suspense/action is excellent. There’s an entire web of plot twists with enough action to keep the book an enticing read. I wouldn’t call it a romance. Or even put it in the romance category. It’s an action book about spies and terrorists that has a very horny main character.
Still In The Ring is entertaining. I’d read more in this series and I’d recommend it!

Courtney Glass is the wild child that has the worst taste in men and it finally catches up with her. She is accused of murder but she knows it was a setup and she’s afraid the real killer will target her next. The only one who believe her are family and a very attractive detective that grunts more than talks. Can Will unravel the mystery before it leads to Courtney’s fatal end?
This is the second glass sisters book. The first one was fabulous and you can find my review here. Courtney is my favorite of the two sisters. She’s just trying to live her life as a stylist and can’t seem to find a man worth even a penny. When she meets Will she’s attracted and she enjoys teasing him but when he teases back he blows her away. As they fight their attraction for the good of the case, the mystery deepens. I love the suspense. I also like how Courtney deals with her problems by running away. It just feels like a natural thing to do for her. The ending is freaking fantastic, both action and sweetness. I do wish there was more heat though. I think Will and Courtney could have been amazing in that department instead of good. The Glass Sisters series had proven to be a romantic suspense must read! I’m going to go find out what else this author has released.
Fiona is an artist working for all manner of law enforcement to draw suspects with such realism. She’s tired of it though, the pain in the eyes of victims, the stories of the hurt. She’s convinced herself to leave all that behind her but not before taking one last case. Jack has himself a serial killer but he can’t prove it and the only woman to survive has a bad reputation. Together can they catch a killer and heal each other?
I’ve only read one other Laura Griffin book and I enjoyed it. This one, wow, fabulous! I love Fiona. She’s an artist who has serious talent with victims and I love her personality. She wants to help but the toll it’s taking on her emotionally is becoming too much. She’s determined to move on but for some reason she can’t resist the sexy, honest good guy Jack. Jack is not giving up. He refuses to let a killer get away with taking so many innocent lives and then they catch a break, a witness. When that witness goes missing he finds out Fiona is literally on the killer heels. The suspense is fantastic. I mean top-notch, edge of your seat stuff. The romance is beautiful. I do wish it had more heat thought. They really have a great chemistry with each other up to a point. The secondary characters are also entertaining. I’m excited to read Fiona’s sisters story.

Shelly dated Stan a while ago but when she found him on a date with another women she called the whole thing off. When she’s become the focus of a stalker the only way she can keep her daughter safe is to get Stan’s help. He works at a security company and he’s never gotten over what could have been with Shelly.
As Stan protects Shelly the heat between them grows until their about ready to combust and trust me, you’ll be hot right along with them. Although Stan’s family is nice they seem unbelievable. They accept her too quickly and I really wish there had been some tension in there to make it more realistic. Maybe one of them is upset by the danger Stan is in or something. I really love how the mystery plays out. I had my suspicions but the journey to get there is fabulous! The bad guy isn’t really competent. He kidnaps her, doesn’t tie her up, doesn’t lock doors or windows. It makes him feel very cardboard. Still, Shelly grew and toughened up as she tries to survive and that gives her a whole new side that I love. The ending is satisfying and feel good.
If you love romantic suspense than I highly recommend Loving a Hero.

The Devil’s Cum in His Eye. Really? I’m torn between laughing and scoffing but it did totally catch my attention. This is a story about Coburn who works three jobs to raise his kid alone. The mother left when she found out Coburn is bi-sexual. He is a cop during the day, stripper on the weekends and an erotic author at night. Then he wakes up one morning to find a dead body in his bed. Someone’s out to frame him but who? When the detective believes his innocence they start a forbidden relationship but can they explore anything with a killer on the loose?
Wow! Hands down one of my favorite books! This is reminiscent of a gay version of Gilmore Girls. The relationship between Coburn and his son Tom feels so real. I like the angst between them but also the love. Luke is the sexy detective that believes Coburn is innocent but he’s not sure if that hunch is from between his legs or in his chest. I like the conflict going on. They both felt the attraction but also reluctant to start anything. This book is definitely not boring! I like how it didn’t drone on and on but kept things quick paced and interesting. As the mystery unfolds I am totally stuck to my seat. I had to find out what happens! And…no I did not get the killer right but when Coburn figures it out, I did suspect. The race to save (you know who) is frantic and really well written. I can feel Coburn intense fear and panic. Then we come to the end where I absolutely cried when someone (not saying who) died. Oh my God, so freaking sad and yet that death just cements the growing relationships going on. Seriously, this is such an amazing book. And it looks like it’s going to be a series! Score!
If you like fast paced mystery and seriously hot sex, you have to read The Devil’s Cum in His Eye. Don’t let the title fool you, this is a romantic suspense gem.

Getting shot hurts. No one knows this better than Rachel. She refuses to be a target so she hires Wyatt and Dieter. She never expects to fall for them or have to deal with an enemy so dangerous it may be the end of her.
Thrilling suspense combined with paranormal and Greek mythology. Yeah, you cannot go wrong with that. Rachel is an amazing character! I instantly liked her. Wyatt and Dieter are sexy, muscular and totally making me drool. The suspense is twisted with paranormal elements, some humor and seriously hot sex. The world building is beautifully done without being too complicated. This series continues to reel me in and I am one happy fish if I get to read more about these sexy couples.
Their Weapons Maker should be at the top of your tbr pile!
