Can't Always Get What You Want
by Chelsey Krause

Can't Always Get What You Want
add-to-goodreads-button31

Sophie Richards is guarding her heart. She lost her first love five years ago and she has never truly moved on. At the insistence of her best friend she goes on a blind date with her best friend's boyfriend's partner, Brett.

Brett Nicholson is surprised to receive a phone call from Sophie inviting him to a concert. He's more surprised about agreeing to go out with her. Shockingly, they realized they have great chemistry. Soon, he wants more. He wants them to continue building a relationship together. Yet, Brett doesn't understand what's holding her up from doing the same. 


I was very excited to read this book. The beginning of it got me intrigued. However, some of the choices Sophie made through the book had me shaking my head. I couldn't understand why she was treating Brett that way.  I thought Brett was very understanding and a great guy despite Sophie hurting him with her silence. Her indecision to move on took away some of her likability.  Brett did surprise me with his ultimatum. I want to say I understand why he did it but I felt it was completely out of character for him.


“I want you to want me more than anyone else in the world. I want to be the first person you think of in the morning, and the last person you think of when you fall asleep. I want to be the man of your dreams. You’re already the girl of mine.”

Romancing the Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club #5) by Jessica Clare

Romancing the Billionaire

Violet DeWitt has nothing to do with her father's last wishes. While he was alive he didn't care much about her, so she has no intentions of getting involved in whatever crazy hunt he has planned for her. Worse, she has no intention to contact the man that hurt her a decade ago.

Jonathan Lyons jumps at the chance to get back into Violet's life. It seems Dr Phineas DeWitt, his mentor and Violet's father is helping him from the grave. He must convince Violet to follow the trail her dad has left for both of them. Jonathan is expecting not only to find the prize but to convince Violet that he's the only man for her. 

Romancing the Billionaire is a cute story. Violet and Jonathan made a good couple. I did feel that the miscommunication was over the top. Especially after ten years have passed and Jonathan never really kept tabs on her and suddenly, she is the most important thing for him. Overall the story was enjoyable and Jessica Clare is a solid author.

"When I'm with you, I feel whole again."

Affliction (Knights Rebels MC #2) by River Savage

Affliction

 
Sylas "Sy" Dean is a mystery even to his MC brothers. He is the loner, broody, with a hard exterior owner of Ink Me, the tattoo business part of the Knight Rebels MC.  He doesn't let anyone in. He learned that life can be hard and it's better if you don't depend on anyone else but yourself.  When he meets Holly for the first time, he knows she is a danger to him. She is a ray of sunshine to his darkness. She is full of life and he knows going there might be his downfall. 

Holly likes what she sees when she looks at Sy. She wants nothing more than to break down those walls surrounding him. She's not looking to settle down, just have some fun with him.  When her wish becomes true, her life becomes nothing but complicated. However, a terrible act against her lands her in the hospital loosing herself in the process.  Only Sy could bring her back but Holly might never be ready for it.

I was very pleased with Affliction. I liked both characters from the moment they were introduced in Incandescent. Holly was vivacious and smart and Sy was the brooding alpha who doesn't want to fall but when he does, he falls hard. It hurt me when Holly lost her innate happiness and I was glad Sy was there for her, knew how to make her come back to life, to him. 
Affliction had less action than Incandescent, it was a little darker but not less interesting. It's the story about how love and trusting the right person can heal you.
I seriously can't wait to read River's next book.

Sale Blitz!
Gypsy Brothers Series by Lili Saint Germain



Seven Sons (Book One) *See where it all began*

*Please note this book is dark romance and deals with serious themes including rape, violence and murder.*
This story unfolds over seven volumes approx. 25 - 30,000 words each.

My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge.

But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

Blurb
Red & Wolfe (Part One)

When Sarah "Red" Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she's brokenhearted. Worse than that? She's broke. Her boyfriend recently left her - for a tatted-up hottie with a dick - so she's stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there's no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.

James Wolfe is not Red's grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won't take "no" for an answer, and he doesn't mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him - and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym "W."

Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of "W."

Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.






Excerpt
"Red?" I push her gown down a little further and close my mouth over her breast, working her nipple with my lips. Caressing it with my tongue. I'm rewarded by a soft moan that goes straight to my cock. I need to be inside her, despite knowing I don't have the time.

I pull the covers down and slide my hand up her shin, then up her thigh. She's warm from sleep. Her skin feels like burnished velvet. My fingers brush her pussy and she lifts her hips. She wants it. I love the way she always wants it.

"Race."

I love the way she says my name: a mew.

"I'm going to fuck you with my fingers," I say, leaning near her face. "Then you'll go to sleep again."

A dreamy smile floats over her lips. She nods a little, pressing her head into the pillow.

I slide a finger into her. She's hot and tight, softer than silk. I can feel her clench as I pump into her. She's wet this morning. So fucking slick. I stroke in and out, painting her pussy, using my fingertip to smooth warm lines around her swollen clit.

I'm rewarded by her crying out.

"Say my name."

I still my hand. I can hear my blood rush in my ears. Race. Say Race.

Her hands grab at my wrist. "Race."

I allow myself a brief grin. It's undiluted satisfaction. She knows - or at least suspects - I'm James Wolfe, but she's still in my bed.

"Say 'Race, please.' I like to hear you beg." I push another finger into her. Her body quivers. "I like to feel you jump."

I stretch her with a third finger and slide my thumb over her clit. I'm moving slow. So slow.

"Race, oh God - yes. Please."

"That's right, sweetheart."

Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When Sarah Sullivan’s pe
rfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home. At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while. Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts. Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?


And if you can't get enough...




There is only one thing in life that professional pastry Chef Priscilla Westcott values more than baking and wine, and that’s honesty. A quality she soon learns that her marriage lacks when her husband runs off with their next door neighbor. Divorced and alone, Priscilla is determined to make changes in her life. She decides to approach her new goals like one of her beloved recipes. Surely with a little time, a dash of patience, and measured planning she can whip herself—and her life—back into shape. However, when a new—and utterly delicious—neighbor takes up residence in the house that ruined her marriage, Priscilla fears that her careful world will fold faster than a deflated soufflĂ©. Trent Walker knows what he wants and his sweet, sassy neighbor is at the top of the list. He’s certain that the chemistry between them would be explosive, but Priscilla fears that an affair with him, however hot, could be a recipe for disaster.
