~ REVIEW: Outlaw’s Kiss (Grizzlies MC #1) by Nicole Snow ~

91FjR-Jr2aL._SL1500_SynopsisAN OUTLAW’S KISS SEDUCES, CONQUERS, AND NEVER LIES…

MISSYThe dirty little secret dad left in the basement was supposed to be our salvation. Guess nobody told him you don’t take cash from killers without savage consequences.

Now, the Grizzlies Motorcycle Club owns my sister and I. We’re only alive because the rugged hulk with the piercing eyes who won’t stop ordering me around says so. He saved us, but he’s also an enigma I don’t understand.

Why does he keep calling me his old lady? Is he really the light to our darkness? And why the hell can’t I stop thinking nasty, shameful things about ending up underneath his wicked tattoos and crude lips?

BRASS

I claimed her on impulse, and all my brothers laughed. Didn’t know I’d end up with a smoking hot spitfire who looks at me like I’m the devil himself.

I expected my reputation to crack, but my damned mind’s going with it. She’s got me questioning my own club and asking myself every single day how long I can keep my hands off her.

It was only pretend, a way to keep her safe. But I can’t ignore the very real brutality, corruption, and danger stalking us. Just like I can’t forget the storm in my blood that won’t stop howling ’til she’s wearing my brand and bracing for my kiss.

Play time’s over. Missy’s gonna be my old lady – no more faking it – and nothing’s standing in my way…

The Outlaw Love books are stand alone romance novels featuring unique lovers and happy endings. No cliffhangers! This is Brass and Missy’s story, first in the Grizzlies MC series.

daniell review 5 star aWith her father’s death, Missy is now the sole caregiver for her teen sister, Jackie. She isn’t sure how she is going to support them both with no job but is hoping for a miracle.  Then she recalls her father’s last cryptic words about something he had hidden in the basement of their house and hits the jackpot when she finds a stash of thousands of dollars.  Missy doesn’t know or care where the money came from, only that it is her and her sister’s way out of the desperate situation they faced.The Grizzlies’ MC want the money that the cartel paid to a traitor for information about their club and don’t care about taking out the traitor’s two innocent daughters. But Missy catches the eye of Brass, one of the MC members, and he decides to save her and Jackie’s life by claiming Missy as his.  Missy is thankful that she and Jackie are still alive but is going to have to come up with a plan to get away from Brass and the rest of the MC.

But the more time she spends around Brass, the more Missy realizes he has done to protect her and her sister. And the chemistry between Missy and Brass is smoking hot and it isn’t long before they give in to their desire for each other. But the Grizzlies MC is in a lot of turmoil within their club and with the cartel. Will Brass be able to continue to protect Missy and Jackie from all the shit raining down on him and his brothers? Will Missy be able to embrace the MC life and want to be Brass’ old lady for good?

I loved this book!! I have read countless MC books but I felt this one was a bit more dark and gritty than others and I loved it. Both main characters, Brass and Missy, are fantastic. Missy is a strong heroine who didn’t whine about her situation and didn’t let any of the badass bikers walk over her. Brass is a hot and sexy biker ready to protect his woman at whatever cost. Loved the banter between these two and the sex is panty-melting hot! This is the first book I have read by Nicole Snow but most certainly won’t be the last!!

SynopsisHeart Mates (Pull of the Moon, Book 1)

Witch plus wolf? They’re allergic. Except no one told their hearts.

Shifters and witches? Forbidden on pain of death. Might as well stick a fork in a light socket. Yet those are the kind of sparks witch princess Sophia Blue
feels when she meets wolf shifter Noah in her aunt’s bookstore.

But Sophia is stuck. Her aunt is missing and Noah, the last person to see her, is Sophia’s only hope. If not for that and her aunt’s new, cute little
doggie, Sophia would run as far as she could from the sexy, hard-hewn alpha.

Noah’s stuck too. Before disappearing, the aunt hit him with a hex gone horribly wrong—he’s the doggie. By day he’s fifteen pounds of yippity-yip, and with
five anti-alpha wolves nipping at his heels, that’s deadly dangerous. Only Sophia can help him, but she has lost her magic.

Then an evil mage from Sophia’s past shows up with murder on his mind, and all Noah’s instincts shout to protect the woman his misguided heart thinks is
his mate.

Warning: Sinfully sexy alpha thrown together with a hot witch in a small town. Sass, sparkle, a meddling aunt, snafus, growling, fighting, and oh yeah,
sex. Might want to get up to date on your shots.

Excerpt

Sophia, looking for her missing aunt, seeks alpha wolf Noah at beta Mason’s garage.

“I don’t know where Noah is. How could I?” Yet even as Sophia spoke, that snarl of awareness curled up her nape.

Mason said, “He phoned just a minute ago. Said you named him Kin—”

“—someone to help,” a bass voice thrummed from the dark depths.

Sophia spun. That masculine voice, vibrating with power, plucked a long string of deep, throbbing need.

A man emerged from the blackness, gliding into the sharp white light. Her entire belly turned inside out.

Crane-her-neck tall. A smooth prowl, all muscular grace, extraordinary strength and endurance. A fall of black hair over a high, regal brow. He was total
alpha—powerful, deadly and sexy as hell.

Her eyes widened, her jaw dropped and her heart beat hard against her ribs as her hormones plonked “Endearing Young Charms”—and then exploded. Not really,
but the full-body shiver and the rush of hot need through her veins was anything but mild.

He stopped a few feet from her, standing with breathtaking stillness. Werewolves were usually ruled by their aggression, so the man’s cool composure was
even more striking.

Definitely a were, though. His honed jaw was textured by the rough black morning-after-sex stubble all male wolf shifters seemed to have. Her body splashed
with a hot me want of desire.

Their eyes met.

Power shows in the eyes. This man had power, and to spare. She was stunned by irises of pure silver around pupils which opened to her like velvety black
pools. She fell in and happily drowned.

“Noah, finally,” Mason said. “I found Marlowe, but he’d already gotten rid of the…” He cut Sophia a glance. “The thing. I read the kid the riot act, made
him do some work around here and sent him home.”

“Good.” Noah’s answer was for Mason but his gaze was still locked on Sophia. He took a step nearer, his eyes flashing. “You’re Linda’s niece.”

“Yes.” Nervously, she fingered her pearls. Those gleaming silver eyes knocked her off-balance, drilling into her very thoughts. She sucked in a breath, got
a lungful of hot male and nearly imploded when her body zinged like every hormone she had was shouting alleluia.

Damn it, no. He was a shifter. Worse, he was pack alpha, bound to be mated. An ex-witch slavering after a mated alpha?

Smiting was happening for sure.

He glided another step closer, his muscles sliding easily under his skin and clothes. He raised his hand and caught her fumbling fingers, stilling them.

The warm pads of his fingers pressed against her skin were stunningly sensual. Her lips fell open because she was having trouble breathing. She blinked at
him.

He lifted her hand from her pearls and brought it to his nose. Finally those remarkable eyes closed as he inhaled. A tiny, appreciative smile curved his
lips, as if he were enjoying the bouquet of a fine wine. “You smell amazing.” His voice rippled with a low, sensual growl.

Her body responded with “Endearing Young Charms”. Boom-boom.

When his lids lifted, his gaze had gentled. The wolf within was very strong, but the man controlled it utterly.

A half step closer, him or her, she wasn’t sure who. Their auras kissed. A thousand butterflies jigged inside her. Pure male heat rolled over her skin,
edged with virile, wild magic. A tremor hit low in her belly. If she leaned in a fraction of an inch, she’d touch him, flesh-on-flesh…she swallowed hard.
Touching him might be like completing an electrical circuit, and she’d be the one fried. “Look, I’m trying to find my Aunt Linda.”

His gaze dropped to her mouth as she spoke. “She owns the bookstore.”

“Yes.” Under that silvery gaze, her lips felt too full, throbbing. The word was hard to form. She licked.

His pupils dilated until his eyes were pure black, riveted to her mouth. “You’re the gor—the woman in the picture.”

What had he been about to say? Gorilla? Gourmand? Gorgeous? “What picture?”

“Your aunt has a photograph of you.” He released her hand to slide a finger under her chin.

All her breath expelled. Without oxygen, she let him tilt her face to one side, then the other. The throbbing in her lips intensified.

His lids lowered, lazy with promise. “Your nose is longer than I expected.”

Wow. Just what a woman wanted to hear. “Thanks.”

“It’s a good nose. Honest. Elegant. I like it.”

Instantly the throbbing was back, but she pushed it away, mirrored it by stepping back. “An honest, elegant snout is still a snout.”

He followed her. “Your nose is unique, like your scent. Exotic. Deeply enticing.”

He was right on top of her. She stared up into eyes glowing between lids slit, not in suspicion, but heavy-lidded with intent.

The intent to kiss her.

SPEAKING OF THE DEVIL

Releases 4/27

SpeakingoftheDevil.v1.Amazon

Set in the same world as the bestselling End of Days series comes the darkly comedic stand-alone serial spin-off, Days of New.

Clark St. James, self-professed man-candy with pink hair and duct-taped boots, didn’t ask to be the leader of the Nephilim clans or to have ancient angel magic contained in the unwanted tattoos on his arms. And most importantly, he didn’t ask for the holy angels to get their panties in a twist and ravage the earth during an angel civil war.

Instead, Clark is making lemonade out of life’s lemons. With vodka. And a splash of whiskey just because.

It’s up to the Descendants of Enoch—an order of humans meant to protect the holy angels while on Earth—and Clark’s Nephilim to set this destroyed world back on its axis. The angels in Heaven are busy repairing their city and rebuilding a new form of democracy. In Hell, everyone is adjusting to a new form of leadership after Clark killed Lucifer, prince of the fallen.

Technically, it was an accident. But people keep forgetting that.

Just when things were beginning to get boring, someone starts murdering Descendants in very…unique ways. Ways that incriminate Clark. But there’s always a calling card beside the bodies: a single burnt black feather. And Clark only knows one fallen angel that got crispy fried.

Apparently Lucifer is back. And he’s pissed off.

SYNOPSIS
******This book is intended for mature audiences, over 18 years of age
This book is a sequel, Book 2 in the Chianti Kisses series.

Everybody expects something of Dom, they have his entire life. His family expects HIM to lead, provide, and support them. His company and employees expect him to keep their business successful, intact. His wife, V, expects him to be the beST man he can be.

And then there are the expectations of his father and his “associates.”

Dom’s father, although long past, had left unfulfilled expectations of his own. Everything he built, bled for, killed for… died for, was left in Dom’s hands.

Dom tried to change things, set things straight, atone for the sins of his father and father-in-law. But, it hasn’t been easy. Many others benefitted from his business dealings, and aren’t willing to loose them so easily.

Emilio Rizzo has vowed to keep things the way they were. He’s waged a war to take full control from Dom, with no concern for the toll it will take on everyone involved. Innocents will be harmed, lives will will be taken, and hard-earned progress will be lost unless Dom steps in and fights the way he was born to.

Someone will be disappointed. Will it be his family, his employees, his father, or his beloved V, when he becomes…

BOSS.

~ REVIEW X3: Agonize (Senses Series #7) by Xavier Neal ~

91rBahOitZL._SL1500_

SynopsisTony Reed has always felt second best. To his family. To his best friend. To every girl he’s dated. But when Lex “Lix” Jones, an indie rock star, convinces him to let go of his inhibitions and have a little fun, Tony quickly has a critical decision to make. Are they meant to live in a world of passion together or should he be left alone to agonize?

michele review 5 star aHoly hot sex Batman! If you thought Logan Kellar was hot, wait until you read about Tony! You may find that he’s even hotter than Kellar (Don’t tell him I said that though 😉 )

Grab your fans ladies; you’re going to need them!

After waking up married to the smoking hot indie rocker Lex, Tony’s life changes forever (one, he now has an unlimited amount of sex ::fans face:: ). Though Tony decides to stay married to the hot rocker to help her with her situation, he starts to develop some strong feels for her that he never expected. As they spend more and more time with each other, he starts to realize that there is more to Lex then what she lets people see.

With Lex’s insecurities about love, Tony has to find a way to prove to her that he wants her to stay around for good. Will Tony be able to show her that he loves her for who she is and now what she pretends to be, or will her insecurities run to deep for her to believe him?

These two were made for each other, here’s to hoping that Tony can make her see that as well!

As I’ve said before in previous reviews for this series, I just LOVE how Xavier is able to tell the characters story, and involve the reader as well. The characters talk to you as if you were there right with them (I’ve found myself responding to them a time or two 😉 ). Xavier does such an amazing job of building the characters, and ever the sub characters so that you fell like you know them.

If you haven’t started reading this series yet, what are you waiting for? You’re missing out on an amazing group of characters!

christie review 5 star aHoly smokes!!!! I thought my Kindle was going to explode! HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!! I always think Xavier’s books can’t get any sexier, but she always proves me wrong, time and time again! Agonize is Tony’s story; he is Maxx’s best friend and the male version of her. He comes across as somewhat of a nerd, but he proved me wrong! Who knew underneath he was a hot sex god???

Agonize was somewhat different than the other books in the series. Readers are introduced to a new character, Lex. Let me just say Agonize starts off with a bang and doesn’t let you out of its clutches until the last page was read. Without spoiling anything, Tony wakes up in Vegas married. It’s a marriage of convenience, but Tony has a hard time remembering that as he begins to develop deeper feelings for his new wife, Lex. She is the polar opposite of Tony. She is a major risk taker and is the life of the party. Can marriage between two opposites turn into something real? Read on to find out!

Xavier is a genius at pulling me into her story by connecting me with her characters. Again, I was the confidante of both characters. This is one of my favorite things about Xavier’s writing, and it never gets old! I like knowing the characters deepest thoughts, feelings, and fears! Readers are always given just even juicy tidbits of the secondary characters in her novels that whets your appetite. Then, when you meet them in their own books, you get to know their deep, dark secrets, and some are explosive! Tony is no different. He comes across as this straitlaced, responsible, average guy who happens to be sexy and hot. But, this average guy persona is an illusion. He’s just as much a sexy, alpha male in the bedroom as Logan and C.J. are! And, Lex, is more than she appears to be too. She comes across as a sexy, confidant, fun-loving woman, yet underneath she’s an insecure girl just looking for love. She and Tony are so different, yet when they are together, they’re just perfect!

Xavier Neal just keeps surprising me with each book she writes. She gives me something different in each book and keeps it fresh and new. And, as usual, she keeps me waiting, may I say very impatiently, for the next book in the series!

daniell review 5 star aTony is a character we meet early on in the Senses series but now we get to know him even better and boy is he full of surprises!!

Tony is tired of being second best. Second best son, second best guy to Logan Kellar with Maxx.  During a weekend in Vegas, Tony finds himself married to the sexy lead singer of an indie band.  He doesn’t regret it though because he has finally found someone that is all about pleasing him and making him happy. 
Lex needs a Green Card to stay in the US and marries Tony in Vegas. She knows this isn’t a real marriage, but who says they can’t enjoy the benefits of living together. She is the good time girl, not true wife material.  But when Tony treats her as his real wife, it becomes more difficult to tell her mind that it is only temporary…or is it?  Has Tony finally found someone that will put him first?  Will Lex realize she is worthy of love?
This book is a shockingly hot read and I loved every minute of it!!  I had no idea that underneath Tony’s nerdy exterior is a smoking hot alpha male!  I loved him as Maxx’s best friend but I always believed he was pretty tame.  I was soooo wrong! Lex fit right into the group and is a great addition to the series. As with the other books in this series, Xavier includes the reader in the experience which makes for exciting and entertaining reading. I look forward to more in this series!!!
