Review: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L Armentrout

Stone Cold Touch
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: October 21st, 2014


Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay.


When I first started this series, I was completely enthralled with these characters. After reading, “Stone Cold Touch”, I’m even more in love with Roth than I was in the first place. Layla seriously needs to make sweet Demon love with this guy. I couldn’t have been happier with this book. Jennifer did it again keeping me up all night long because I wanted to see what happened next. Now I have to wait for “Every Last Breath” and I need it like yesterday!

When we left Layla in “White Hot Kiss” she was devastated at losing Roth. When we return to her, she is mourning him even more. She has grown ever closer to Zayne and honestly I was not happy. She doesn’t belong with Zayne. I get the whole warden concept and how they want to protect everything, but it comes to a point where Back the heck off! Layla slowly starts seeing a change in her powers. Things are even more wonky than they were before and then Roth returns.

ROTH FREAKING COMES BACK! I literally squealed when I read the very page that he returned. Jennifer has a way of making her characters more than they seem and that is exactly how she makes Roth. I loved him in the first book and I loved him even more in the second. Roth comes back on another mission for the Boss. Everything changes quickly. Things are revealed and you have that “Oh crap…” moment and you’re left holding your breath.

Layla is torn now between the boy that she has loved since forever and the one that she can be herself with. She really comes into her own in this book. She starts exploring more of her demon side. She gives that side of her more of a chance. This really shows her growth. This growth doesn’t feel rushed either. Her personality is gradual and grows as the book goes on, it’s not sudden. I loved the introduction to witches in this book. I thought it gave a great new element to the supernatural in the story. Honestly, Zayne for me is a great guy. I really do like him, but I feel that he’s got more of that best friend/brother feel to him.

This love triangle is believable and one of the best ones that I have seen. Each has the potential to be hot and steamy and some scenes really leave you panting for more. I can't wait to see what Jennifer does in "Every Last Breath". Will Layla fall completely for Roth (which I'm really hoping for) or will she go with the safe route (in my opinion)? This series has definitely grown fantastically. It's an enticing story that is a bit outside the normal boundaries. The length is just right and it doesn't feel long and overbearing. It's just the right about of crazy!

Review: Tyler's Undoing by L.P. Dover

Tyler’s Undoing
Author: L.P. Dover
Published: October 6th, 2014


**Steamy, romantic suspense novel by NYT and USA TODAY Bestselling author, L.P. DOVER. Find out what happens in the conclusion to Tyler's story.**

She's what he wants ... but she's also his undoing.

Through mutual understanding, Tyler's secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end. It's a decision that not only saves their friendship, but it's one that will change his life forever.

For the past couple of years, Tyler Rushing has been known as one of the UFC's most memorable and sexy heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the fame he so deserves. He has everything he could ever want until Kacey Andrews walks through the door of his gym, wanting nothing to do with him. Keeping his eyes off of her is a challenge; there's an innocence about her that draws him to her, and he's not going to stop until he makes her his. Little does he know that Kacey Andrews isn't a stranger. She's a part of his world; he just doesn't know it. It's a secret she's worked hard to keep hidden.

Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who's hated among the MMA elite ... her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she's brought back into it when Tyler's relentless battle for her heart wins her over, drawing her in. The only problem is that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler has a decision to make, and it's one that can possibly destroy his and Kacey's life ... forever.


I received this book in exchange for honest review. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

After I read “A Fighter’s Desire”, I was so interested in Tyler’s character. I thought there was so much more to his character and I had already fallen in love with him. Tyler is all about the ‘perks’ of being an MMA fighter. He’s all about the women throwing themselves at him. Of course there are moments where I was like “Seriously Dude! Get your crap together!” When we first met him, we knew he was all about Gabriella. He was torn about his feelings being that she is the little sister to his best friend. I wouldn’t wait to see that relationship unfold in this book, however I was so wrong.

In this book, we meet Kacey. Kacey is kind-hearted, loyal and strong. She knows the ‘type’ of guy she wants to stay away from, but sometimes that doesn’t always work. Her best friend Bree is awesome and I loved the introduction to her character. She was meddlesome, but she wasn’t over-bearing. She only wanted what was best for Kacey. When Kacey meets Tyler, she is drawn to him but she knows that she needs to stay away. She has he own secret that needs to stay a secret.

She knows about Tyler’s ways and tries to brush him nicely. He starts to show another side to himself. She starts bringing out the “MAN” in him, not the playboy that everyone knows him to be. The only problem is the secret that she is harboring and if Tyler would really understand why she kept it from him.

In this book, we see the return of Gabriella, who I instantly loved, but she and Tyler have come to terms amicably. This was a little disappointing because I thought they had so much chemistry, however I got over it! We see the return of Ryley who I know has more to him and I can’t wait to read his story. We see the ever hated Kyle Andrews and what game he starts to play. We see another side the character Paxton that I found really, really enjoyable.

In this book, you will see betrayal, humor, romance, sarcasm, and hatred. I found it extremely enjoyable and will definitely read it again. Everyone should take the trip into the world of these characters. Definitely take the time out to read the first two novellas, “A Fighter’s Desire” and then pick up “Tyler’s Undoing.” You will not be disappointed!

Review: A Fighter's Desire by L.P. Dover

A Fighter’s Desire
Author: L.P. Dover
Publish date: July 28th, 2014


**A Fighter's Desire is an introductory prequel novella to the Gloves Off series. If you love sexy, MMA fighters you don't want to miss out on the hardcore, tap out action with my twins, Ryley and Camden. They're ready to get down and dirty on the mat.** The conclusion to their stories will be coming soon in their full length novels.

Two is always better than one.

What would you do it you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures that offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round? 

I was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. They only problem was that if you didn't pass their test on the first night, then you didn't proceed to the next round. They loved a good fight, and that;s what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.

Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them ... or so she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn't refuse, but she knew it wouldn't be easy to win. However, it was on that she was going to enjoy.

**Second installment

When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they would only break her heart.

Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.

Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.


I received an ARC of A Fighter’s Desire for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. At first I was worried but I really liked the concept behind it. Please remember when reading this that this is just the introduction to the characters. There have been many books about fighters that I have read, but this one was a bit different. This book is two stories in one. However, the characters from each story are in the other. If I had to choose my favorite of the two, it would be the second story. I don’t know if it is because the characters in the second story had a little bit more growth or if the story behind it was much better. I’ll try to do this with no spoilers.

Part 1:

The first story was about Ashleigh, Ryley and Camden… Ashleigh, our female lead and our twin MMA fighters, Ryley and Camden. Yes you heard me right, TWINS! I was so intrigued. Very intrigued. I couldn't wait for the Wham, Bam, Thank you Ma'am... but it didn't come! There was romance and sweet talking and then it was like, "Nope, no thank you." I was a little disappointed. It wasn't the big happily ever after that i was looking for. I was not expecting the behavior of either twin; either of them. One I wanted to punch in the face... multiple time and the other I was falling for.

I thought this first story was more rushed and thrown together for lack of better term. The characters didn’t really seem to grow and from what we saw I thought they could have been developed so much more if they were given more time. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed this first story. Would I get the twin action that seemed so likely to happen? You’ll have to read to find out! (wink, wink).

“What Camden said … is it true? Are you actually worse than him?”

Ryley sighed and took my hands in his, pulling me back to him. “At first I was,” he admitted. “I’m the one who brought the women to him to help him cope. I’m the one who led him down that path. I confess I’m not the nicest guy and I sure as hell have never given a damn about anyone, but I can honestly say that how I’ve been with you right here and now is who I really am.”

“So after you take me home tomorrow you’ll go right back to the way you were?”

         He kissed my palms and smiled. “I don’t know yet, that all depends on you.”

Part 2:

As for the second story, I was much happier with the characters and how they grew. They were given the chance because we had meant them earlier. I thought the storyline was much better and I liked Gabby so much more than Ashleigh. She seems like she has more to her and I really want to see her more throughout this series. I thought she was a more grounded individual. She is sassy and smart. She knows what she wanted and even though it may have seemed like it, she didn’t want to lead anyone.

As I seemed to get closer to the end, I was uncertain of where everything was going. I really thought it was going to end in a completely different way. When I finished and I got to the end, my exact feelings, “What the Hell just happened?!?” I was a little discouraged. However, when I saw I was going to see Tyler again, I calmed down.


Breathing hard, I stepped out of Tyler’s reach and started for the door, much to his dismay. “Why are you here, Gabriella?”

Keeping my back to him, I paused with my hand on the knob, and blew out a heavy sigh. “I told you. When I want something, I get it. I wanted to see you.”

“You’re walking a dangerous line, Gabriella. I don’t do relationships, and I don’t plan on starting … even if it is with you.”

I glanced at him over my shoulder. “Well, then I guess it’s a good thing I don’t want one with you either. Look, Tyler, I’m only here for the weekend. If you want to see me again you know how to find me. No strings, just you and me.”

Overall, I was happy. I was pissed off. I was confused and I shook my head plenty of times. I think I actually screamed at the book at one point. I’m really looking forward to the next books and hoping that everything will come together. I don’t think I even care if it’s in a bad way or a good way. I need more closure than what we were left hanging with. I can’t wait to see more development in these characters because I really grew to enjoy them even though it may seem like I didn’t. This book is definitely a winner and should really be read by all!

Review: Stay with Me by J. Lynn

Stay With Me
Author: J. Lynn
Published: September 23rd, 2014


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You and Be with Me comes a daring tale that pushes boundaries . . .

At 21, Calla hasn't done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should.   She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she’d left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla's business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona.And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal... and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she's got to deal with the pain of the past -- and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn't give them her mom. 


I have read all of Jennifer’s books and I’m never disappointed. I never turn down her books. As soon as Stay with Me was available to pre-order, I did it. When I started Stay with Me, I knew I was going to be in for a ride. Cam is still my favorite character that she has created and unless something changes, I think he will always be my number one book boyfriend. When she introduced Jax I almost gave up on Cam. Calla and Jax’s story is one of my favorites. She proved in this story that not everyone is perfect in looks and that they aren’t everything.

Calla’s back story is started in Be With Me. She is a friend of Tessa’s. She lies to her friends because she is ashamed of her past and family. How she got the scar on her face isn’t told to us until Stay with me. She is a quiet girl that admires from afar. She doesn’t try to draw attention to herself. After realizing that her mother has destroyed everything that she has built up, she has to return to the one place she never wanted too… Home. When she returns, she finds a hot guy that she has never seen before.

Jackson, or Jax is taking care of business in Calla’s old town and is immediately all up in Calla’s business. She doesn’t know why or if she wants him to be. She has drilled in her head that no one would want her because of her marred face. She hides herself because of it. Jax goes about his business and makes it his business to help Calla in everything that she needs to do. He gives her a job when he knows she needs it. He hides things that he knows will her hurt her, but he makes it his job to know that he is there for her. Jax is smooth, sexy, heartwarming and sarcastic. He knows what he wants and goes for it. He’s protective and that just makes him even sexier in my opinion.

Calla is on a mission to fix things in her past and her future. Jax is there to help and she needs to learn to let him in. I thought this was a great story about how appearances don’t mean everything. It proved that just because your face may be marred or if you have demons in your past, doesn’t mean you aren’t amazing on the inside. I loved this book and Jax came very close to taking about Cam’s #1 book boyfriend status. Take a gander and you’ll love this book as much as I did. You won’t want to put it down.

Early Review for "Her Hot Number" by Talia Hunter

Her Hot Number
Author: Talia Hunter
Release Date: October 20th, 2014


One bad boy billionaire, plus one sexy geek equals one hot fling... It's a travel nightmare for mathematician Caylee Reynolds. It's bad enough that her luggage was lost en route to her conference, but when she arrives at the Australian resort and learns that she's also lost her reservation, Caylee’s ready to break down. Then things get even worse. The resort is owned by Blake Sampsonthe bad boy who once took everything from her...  Blake thought he’d left his troubled past far behind him. Then the sexy-but-proper math guru he’s never been able to forget walks into his lobby. Hoping to show Caylee he’s changed, he offers to share his suite. Except the attraction between them only grows in such close quartersexponentially.  Even though Blake’s incredibly successful—and hot—Caylee’s not sure she can risk her heart again. Not after the way he destroyed her trust when he disappeared years ago. But if she's wrong in her calculations, she could lose everything... 


I was given the privilege of ready this book early from the author. This was the first book that I had read by this author and I loved it. Before I say anything about the book…. Holy HOT Cover!! Its definitely something to look at! This book starts off with the leading lady, Caylee, having major travel problems. What she goes through is definitely everyone’s worst fear when it comes to traveling. Having had similar issues coming I was totally able to empathize with her.

Insert a man from her past that even though she didn’t want to remember him, she did. When she sees Blake, she is instantaneously brought back to the heart ache she felt when he left suddenly. Being the owner of the hotel she is staying in, he over hears the troubles that she has gone through and tries to rectify the situation. She reluctantly lets him help and hopes she doesn’t regret it.

There was fun and light hearted banter between the two which I loved and added to the chemistry. In this book, you get to watch the two characters grow closer and leaves you with the growing question of “Will it work out?” This book was a quick, fun read and I recommend it to everyone. I couldn’t put it down and I would love to read more about these two.

Review: Rules of Protection by Alison Bliss

Rules of Protection
Author: Alison Bliss
Publish Date: August 26th, 2014


It's rule breaker Emily Foster's birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she's entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.

When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can't have.

Jake's as hot as he is infuriating, and she can't help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake's determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she's determined to get into the right ones-his.


I just had the pleasure of reading, “Rules of Protection” by Alison Bliss. I have to say that I was so happy with this author’s Debut novel. I couldn’t stop laughing throughout the whole thing. There was just enough seriousness, laughter, romance, and sassiness to make the book awesome.

This book is perfect if you are looking for a romantic comedy that has just the right amount of suspense in it. You really won’t be disappointed when you pick it up. The onslaught of characters that she brings to life in this book makes you wish you have a sexy FBI agent looking after you all the time, a fun-loving, maybe a bit inappropriate ‘Cowboy’ backing you up, and new family members just there to listen.

Emily is a sassy, fun loving, pain in the ass. She witnesses something that everyone hopes they never would stumble across and her life becomes crazy in the matter of minutes. She continues to go through a hurricane of emotions between hating her now body guard Jake Ward, loving him and every inch of his body, scared out of her mind because she isn’t in control of her life anymore, and just pissed off in general. She is a great character even though she can be a bit arrogant and ungrateful. When she slowly starts opening up to Jake, there is that little nagging feeling that he doesn’t care about her the way she cares about him.

Jake is a sexy, protective FBI agent and I want to take him home with me. LOL!!! At first when I met him I was like ‘oh here we go, another hot guy well fall instantly in love with’, but when I found out he was a law enforcement officer; I said “Where do I sign up?” Jake, may be over protective, but he takes his job seriously. He is sarcastic and antagonistic in a way. He tries to make Emily see he cares for her, but she just aggravates the hell out of him.

Jakes friends were a completely different story. They were so fun-loving that I want to just go to a bar with them. They added so much humor to the story. They really gave a lot to story. They showed that Jake had another side. We can’t forget Jake's family. They were definitely the people that I would want there by my side if shit hit the fan.

Without giving much more away, you should really read this book. Will all their hard work pay off? Will the two finally realize their feelings for one another? You'll have to read this book to find out. I seriously could not put it down. I wanted to keep reading. I cannot wait for the second book in the series.
