5+++ Stars
I am truly at a loss for words on how to truly express how much I LOVED this book! I love all of Vicki Green's work but Trusted was by far her Best Work yet! I must warn you that you will need Kleenex for this one.

We learn a bit about Pearl from the Forgiven, Bo & Stormy's story, and she's an unselfish, loving, caring free spirited person ready to help anyone. She decides to do something different, so she buys a bar. She's gutsy in my book.
Well, from the moment Pearl sets her eyes on Harley she feels this insta-attraction and can't get him out of her head. Even though he is her employee, that does not discourage her to get to know him better and truly see why Harley is so mysterious. As we see the interaction between Harley and Pearl you can feel the sexual tension and it has me talking to my Kindle "just give in for crying out loud"!! Despite Harley trying to keep to himself and not get attached to anyone wherever he goes, he cannot deny that he actually wants to set roots where he is at and wants a life with Pearl. As Harley actually opens up to Pearl, you get a glimpse of the sad, unjust and painful past and you understand why he is the way he is. He doesn't feel worthy to be loved but Pearl makes sure to show him that he is worthy and more, of love and happiness!! We get to see what the future brings them and how their love for each other helps them to endure trials and problems. 
All round a beautifully written book that once you start reading it you will not want to put it down. Thank you Vicki Green and I cannot wait for what else she has in store  for us!

Blog Tour - Little Black Book by Tabatha Vargo & Melissa Andrea


Title: Little Black Book
Author: Tabatha Vargo & Melissa Andrea
Release Date: June 30, 2014
My name’s Sebastian Black, and I want to buy you. I could have any woman I want, but I choose you.


Here’s my offer…

I’ll put your name in my LITTLE BLACK BOOK, and when I want you, I’ll call you. When I call, you’re going to come, in more ways than one. It will be mutually pleasurable for both of us.

There are only two rules:


If you do either, I’ll remove you from my book and payment stops.

Do we have an understanding?


The blurb for this book really intrigued me, it doesn't give you much, just enough, to make you want more! Once I started reading I didn't want to stop.
Both of the main characters, Sebastian and Rosslyn aka Roz, have dark pasts. The way they live their lives shows that.  I thought that Roz was a strong female character.  With all she had been through and her current situation she did her best to keep her and her brother safe.  Sebastian uses the women in his Little Black Book so he can stay away from love but still have sex.  The women in his little black book are nameless to him, besides the cartoon character nicknames he gives them.  They come together because Roz has no other choice and she is Sebastian's Jessica Rabbit.  They learn a lot about each other through their abnormal relationship and they both ended up with more than they had wanted in the beginning.  
There were definitely some hot scenes in this book, but that is something you can expect with Sebastian Black!  I ended up loving both Sebastian and Roz as characters and I would love it if they got another book!  Little Black Book was the first book I've read from both of these authors, and after reading this one I will be sure to check out their other books!

Sebastian Black, oh, Sebastian Black, damn the man is sexy as Hell! How can you read that synopsis and not One-Click immediately? Find a comfortable spot to sit, dive in and make sure to have a spare pair of panties on hand.

Mr. Black doesn't do love, he doesn't do attachments. He assigns his women names of cartoon characters and never bothers to learn their real ones. If they start to get the look of love in their eyes, they're done. Cut off and erased from the book. 

Rosslyn has been dealt a shitty hand in life. Struggling to take care of her younger brother a job at Clive's, Sebastian's club, is a Godsend to her. But the enigmatic owner doesn't want her at his customer's beck and call, he wants her all to himself.

Throw in some cat and mouse, a little bit of drama, suspense and lots of sexy time and you have a winning book on your hands! I loved Little Black Book. I was totally wrapped up in this book and fell more for these characters in each and every chapter. A great read by this pair of authors, Tabatha Vargo and Melissa Andrea. It is a standalone, no cliffhanger. 

Now go to amazon, go directly to amazon, do not pass go, do not collect $200. One-Click and make a date with uber sexy Sebastian.
~ Review by Erin

Let me start off by saying this book was Sizzling Hot! From the beginning of the book's blurb until the very last word of the book it had my full, undivided attention.

Sebastian Black's appetite for no strings attached sex consumed him like the need for air to survive. He picks the ones that he wants added to his Little Black Book but under the name he deems them worthy Bambi, Wilma, Betty...
As you get to know Sebastian you come to see that he is a man tormented by his past demons that will not let him go and I will say once you realize what they are you will end up shaking your head and hoping it's not true. His way of coping with those demons is getting lost in nameless women that he controls as he pleases. There is one woman that is constantly in Sebastian's life and that is Victoria "Vick" and you see why she is and why he feels he can't let her go. When his eyes land on Roz working there at his club he knows he's met his match - "Jessica".
"Her thick-lipped smiled kindled something deep in my groin-a tiny spark ignited and made my balls ache."  
Roz's life has not been easy and she has gone through a lot at a very young age and is still going through it, making tough decisions that not only affect her but her little brother as well. I loved the banter between Sebastian and Roz as well as when Sebastian goes Alpha on Roz at times, to let her know that he's the one calling the shots not Roz's "smart mouth".
You will feel like you're on a roller coaster of emotions when reading this book because it's more than Hot Sex - which I will NEVER complain about, but there is an story within these sizzling pages! Thank you Tabatha Vargo & Melissa Andrea for a Hot, Steamy, Sizzling story and maybe we can get a novella on Sebastian & Roz or better yet, another book :-)

Tabatha Vargo
Tabatha is a sweet tea sippin', front porch sittin' kind of girl from South Carolina. She loves old, historical anything, wind chimes, and all things romantic. She is the mother of an 8 y/o rockstar/princess and the wife of her very own Prince Charming.

When she isn't writing, she's texting book ideas to herself.



Melissa Andrea

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try.

Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn't be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter's will always be my greatest accomplishment.

I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don't have a big family, but I'm close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.

4 things you should know about me: I'm very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5)



Blog Tour - Uncontrollable by Shantel Tessier

Loyalty will be tested

Hearts will be shattered
Lies will be told
Secrets will be revealed
Slade and Samantha’s story comes to an end. Will their love get them through what they never saw coming?





 #1 Undescribable


#2 Unbearable





5 Suspenseful Steamy Sucks You In Stars

From the middle of Unbearable till the end, hints continued to unravel that foreshadowed Uncontrollable was not going to be sunshine and rainbows for Slade and Samantha. Shantel Tessier did a fantastic job leaving us, as readers, satisfied with how things wrapped up but at the same kept us hooked and anxious for more. We saw a few new characters in book 2. Tate was introduced - mmmm Tate. Tatted, muscular, bad boy whew! He is a great secondary character addition as he brings attraction and intrigue; only glimpses are offered into the make-up of who Tate really is. As well as Missy, sweet broken Missy who guards her heart as strongly as the forces at Fort Knox. Now in Uncontrollable Mrs. Tessier does it again, adding more characters to the mix expanding elements of suspense, drama, romance and highlighting growth in relationship dynamics, both among friends and couples.
Speaking of relationships, I have been hooked into Slade and Samanthas since book 1. From their banter, their chemistry and holy fire extinguishers needed, their sex is wam bam fan me down man HOTTT!!!!! Yet, I love how over the course of this series their sex continues to crackle with sparks but we see more of the passion and emotional connection between these two. There is romance and there is raw leg clenching F**king and also playoff revs up your horny meter scenes.
I want to watch you as you lay there helpless. You cant move, you cant see. All you can do is imagine what Im going to do to you. He pauses, and I let out a long breath. Let your imagination run wild, Angel, he adds, and I can almost hear the smile in his voice.
I was already a fan of Mitch and Holly, and then cheered on Courtney and Josh in book 2, now I am completely crushing on both Tate and Parker. The dynamic between Slade, Tate and Parker hook, line and sinks you as a reader. They are the 3 best friends that anyone could have (cue the song in your head!). They are macho yet have a weakness for women, they are serious, yet big kids at heart and funny.
Wait? Parker says with a frown. Why didnt you want me as an assistant?
Because you would be trying to hump every damsel in distress, Tate adds laughing.
The biggest common denominator between this terrific trio is all of them, without a doubt, are loyal and have each others backs. All the drama in this book will keep you on edge till the very end. You will want to slap some characters, you will shout, grip your kindle tight and may even have to walk away to grab a glass of wine. But wow, does the suspense, the sorrow and of course the sex suck you in.
Just when you think Samantha and Slade are on a smooth course, bumps pop up from every angle. Whereas I felt we saw a larger growth in Samantha in Unbearable, I strongly believe in Uncontrollable we see the biggest transformation in Slade. He allows us to see more of his emotions yet remains a dominating protective sex god in the bedroom but the partnership between him and Samantha is more evident. I didnt think I could fall in love anymore than I already was with Slade but Mrs. Tessier you proved me wrong. When Slade Long isnt wetting your panties, or making your legs squirm, he melts yours heart
“…no matter what road we would have taken, whether it was an easy one or a harder one, we would still be laying here right, right now at this very moment. Because my love for you is greater than anything else in this world. nothing could have stopped me from loving you.
Some of the drama was all over the place, however that helped the story play out all the way to the close. I couldnt predict the way the next scene would unfold. The way Shantel Tessier goes about finishing this series will satisfy you to the highest power. Dont be sad because technically Slade and Samanthas story is over, be happy we have gotten to read it and send Mrs. Tessier thank you cards after thank you cards for bringing us Tate and Parker next :D :D :D More of all our favorite characters and most importantly more of Mrs. Tessier's realistically fresh, funny, steamy, passionate writing!!!

Release Day Blitz - Where I Belong by J Daniels

Title: Where I Belong
Series: Alabama Summer #1
Author: J Daniels
 Release Date: June 30, 2014


When Mia Corelli returns to Alabama for a summer of fun with her childhood best friend, Tessa, there's only one thing keeping her on edge. One person that she’d do anything to avoid.

Benjamin Kelly. World’s biggest dickhead.

Mia hates him with a fury and has no desire to ever see him again. When she decides to start her summer off with a bang and finally give away her v-card, she unknowingly hands it over to the one guy that excelled at making her life miserable, learning a valuable lesson in the process.

Always get the name of the guy you’re going home with.

Ben can’t get the girl he spent one night with out of his head. When she leaves him the next morning, he thinks he’ll never see her again. Until he sees her lounging by the pool with his sister.

Mia is determined to hate Ben, even though she can’t forget him.

Ben is determined to prove he’s not the same guy he used to be.

What happens when the one person you wish never existed becomes the one person you can’t imagine being without?


You know, I've never wanted to be pulled over and frisked until I read this book and met Officer Benjamin Kelly. Now I can't help but think a road trip to Alabama might be in order...on the off-chance that Ben (or even Luke) might be on duty. Men in uniforms. Yummy. Am I right?? 
Mia Corelli has grown-up a lot since she was last in Alabama. She's shed some weight, lost her glasses and is virtually unrecognizable. That would explain how she ended up going home with the one man she hoped to avoid during her summer vacation - her bestie's big bro, Ben. Ben Kelly can't keep his mind off the gorgeous woman that rocked his world and then left without giving him her name. He's happily floored when he finds her again by the pool at his parent's house. But Mia wants nothing to do with Ben, not after the torment he put her through when they were kids. Ben is desperate to change her mind. Mia is determined to hate him forever. Who will win?
First of all, let me say that I was incredibly lucky to get to beta-read this book, because J. Daniels is a friend of mine. I loved it in it's early stages and I adore it now. Where I Belong is a funny, sexy and very sweet summer read, that hits all the right notes. Mia and Ben had excellent chemistry and I was rooting for them from a get-go. Ben is an awesome mix of kind, gentle and alpha. There's none of that asshole alpha personality that we see so often, and that's the way I like my heroes. The secondary characters - particularly the delightfully dirty-minded Tessa - gave the story extra punch and laughs. There's a couple of extra things that I'd love to tell you about but are better left unsaid - I'd hate to spoil it. I clicked through page after page, desperate to keep reading - even though I had read it before. Now I'm done and I'm a little disappointed. I have to wait for the next book? How unfair is that? Until then, I guess I'll just plan my visit to 'Bama. And think of ways to get frisked by a hot man in uniform. 
Where I Belong is the first book in the Alabama Summer Series and can be read as a standalone, no cliffhanger.
