When it comes to family, Ian Dare gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. Until one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him dealing his half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.
Riley Taylor believes herself immune to domineering men – until charismatic Ian Dare turns a simple kiss into an all-out assault on her senses and she discovers she likes his brand of control in the bedroom. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything.
This is the first book in the Dare to Love Series and if you haven’t read any of Carly Phillips’s books you’re missing out. Just from looking at the cover I could tell this series was going to be a little different from her others that I’ve read. Usually her covers are bright and airy and so are the stories within, which I love. This book delved into a little more dominant character, which was an interesting change. She always writes a HEA and this book was no different. The characters were very interesting, I especially love the independence of Riley and hooking up with Ian was AWESOME! Ian was dominant and possessive enough that it made him sexy as heck. This book had a nice well written story line, and I loved getting to know Ian’s immediate and extended family. I can’t wait to read their stories in the upcoming books. I’m off to read book 2, so look for that review in the coming days.

Morgan O’Malley has seen a lot of kinky things as the hostess of a cable sex talk show. But she’s never met a man like Jack Cole before. A self-proclaimed dominant, he’s as alpha as a male can get—and good for Morgan to have around when an obsessed stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her.
Until he made her beg for it.
Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence because, slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what’s more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it—and starts to crave his masterful touch. A willing player in Jack’s games, Morgan knows that his motives aren’t pure, but she has no idea how personal they are…
At some point in time last year, I came across Shayla Black and this series. So, I decided why not. I’m looking for something new and original. Let’s see what this author has to offer!
Morgan run a sex show on TV and decides to do some real life research on BSDM. Except, when she meet Jack she wants to experience it all with him. However, life threw her a curve. She has a stalk who is attempting to kill her.
Jack is in the security business and decides that in order for him to keep Morgan safe that he will have to keep her safe personally. So as these two attempt to figure out who is stalking her, she also has to figure out how to deal with the sexual chemistry between her and Jack. Simple right……… ha! Jack has his own secret and it is a secret that has to do with Morgan!!!
I liked this book. It has some fun suspense to it, wrapped around the BSDM culture and some fun twists and turns. I would like liked to have had more angst. There was a good amount of suspense to the book, just not enough angst for me! I needed more of that to put it over the edge.
Grandpa though……. He was down-right funny! His antics were bold and right in your face! Normally, I would like someone who was gammy, but come on. A grandpa who came right now and told you his thoughts, bahahahaha! I’m not going to tell you what he did, but trust me you will be laughing when you get there!

I thought it was too late. I thought our story had already been written.
College sophomore Brooke Anderson thought she had it all − a loving family, her sexy high school sweetheart, a supportive, quick-witted best friend and dreams of being the next hotshot reporter for the Washington Post.
Fate had something else in mind when Brooke collided with the devastatingly handsome upperclassman, Rich Davis. Rich was cocky, conceited and arrogant. He was everything that Brooke didn’t want, but Rich never gave her the option. He had already made the choice to be, at the very least, her friend. Would Brooke accept this egotistical man’s friendship? Would she choose to want more? Would it be too late if she did?
Fast forward nearly ten years. Brooke’s life hadn’t played out quite as she had envisioned it. She was suffering from the heartbreaking loss of her mother, her high school sweetheart was long gone, and her dreams of the Washington Post had turned into a career at a small town paper. Brooke decided it was time to follow her dreams. If she couldn’t be happy in love, at least she could be happy in life.
Brooke’s dreams brought her to the lobby of the Washington Post where fate intervened once again as she collided with none other than the devastatingly handsome Rich Davis. As her potential employer, Rich now seemed off-limits. Brooke wanted her successful career more than a chance at love. But, was it really her choice to make, or was it beyond her control?
Maybe my story is, in fact, Unwritten …
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend or at least has some fun plans! I’m in Florida for my brother’s wedding and it is beautiful outside. The ride down was supposed to be 15 hours and it turned into 19 hours! Many people have said, “Why don’t you drive?” The answer is that my husband won’t fly BOO!!!!! So I drove with him and it was horrible. I slept and read most of the time, since he won’t let me drive. He says my driving his horrible. And I think his driving is horrible! He drives under the speed limit whereas I tend to drive above the speed limit and I don’t look like a tourist when I’m in Miami. I fit in with the rest of the drivers, BAHAHAHAHA!!
So on the way down I re-read Bared to You by Sylvia Day. Read the Rocker Who Holds Me by Terri Anne Browning and made it half way through Uncovered by Emily Snow. Hopefully I can get caught up on some reading while I”m down here. As most of you know my position at my previous job was eliminated and having been searching for empoloyment since. While unemployed I officially open my jewelry company and I’m in the process of making all the designs for it. You can find pictures of my designs on my personal FB page: Melissa Page. So soon, I will be blogging, running a jewelry company and working a 40-hour a week job! I better hurry up and get down a schedule because I refuse to give up my reading!!! I cannot give up searching for my next book boyfriend!!!

A Spy without a Country
Simon Weston grew up royal in a place where aristocracy still mattered. Serving Queen and country meant everything to him, until MI6 marked him as damaged goods and he left his home in disgrace. Ian Taggart showed him a better way to serve his fellow man and introduced him to Sanctum, a place to pursue his passion for Dominance and submission. Topping beautiful subs was a lovely distraction until he met Chelsea, and becoming her Master turned into Simon’s most important mission.
A Woman without Hope
Chelsea Dennis grew up a pawn to the Russian mob. Her father’s violent lessons taught her that monsters lurked inside every man and they should never be trusted. Hiding in the shadows, she became something that even the monsters would fear—an information broker who exposed their dirty secrets and toppled their empires. Everything changed when Simon Weston crossed her path. Valiant and faithful, he was everything she needed—and a risk she couldn’t afford to take.
A Force too Strong to Resist
When dark forces from her past threaten her newfound family at Sanctum, Chelsea must turn to Simon, the one man she can trust with her darkest secrets. Their only chance to survive lies in a mystery even Chelsea has been unable to solve. As they race to uncover the truth and stay one step ahead of the assassins on their heels, they will discover a love too powerful to deny. But to stop a killer, Simon just might have to sacrifice himself…
This is Book #7 in the Masters and Mercenaries Series. I hope it’s not the last because I thoroughly enjoyed the entire series, but if it is I’m ok with it because the ending was PERFECT. From the first book these characters were introduced in I knew I loved ‘em, but I never thought they would be put together. WOW, what a combo they are together. Simon is so prim, proper and British (I mean seriously, who doesn’t love a British accent on a man) and Chelsea is as hard as all get out ~ I LOVED them both! When I found out they were going to be together I was on the fence about them being together. I knew I LOVED each individual character but just didn’t think they could pull off a relationship, boy was I wrong! They had a rocky go of it but in the end they pulled it together and had a happily ever after.
I would definitely recommend reading this series in order, and I think you’ll love it as much as I did.

New York Series Book 4
Cami and Ziporah are two girls that couldn’t be more different if they tried. They met as college roommates, forging a friendship that became a lifeline when tragedy struck.
Now as Cami opens herself to reclaim her sexuality, including the possibility that she is a sexual submissive, her fear of the unknown threatens to keep her chained by the past forever.
Ziporah has always been Cami’s champion, reassurer, her safe place, and she is determined to take this erotic journey side by side with her. What starts out as supporting a friend just may end up showing Z that she and Cami may not be so different after all.
When Evan moved to New York City on business, the last thing he expected was to have two untrained subs on his hands. Each woman appeals to him in different ways. They pull at his emotions with their vulnerability and challenge his Dominance with their spunk and wit. Evan never dreamt that as he taught their bodies to submit, his heart would be brought to submission by theirs.
Warning: This book contains graphic language, BDSM elements, F/M/F ménage
Oh my goodness I LOVED this book!! If you aren’t familiar with Lainey Reese this is the 4th book in her New York Series, which just came out a few days ago, and like the others she knocked it out of the park for me. I read this book in a day because I couldn’t put it down, I had to find out what happened and then I couldn’t sleep when I finished it at 12:50am (thanks Lainey)!
The warning on this book says BDSM elements and F/M/F menage; hhmmmm. I know they put warnings on the books so you can be prepared when reading but here’s my take. The BDSM elements were commands, flogging and nipple clamps, very mild. The F/M/F menage was not what I was expecting at all. The sex was HOT, but the two females did not engage in any activity with each other, which I was really glad because they were so close they could’ve been sisters and that would’ve freaked me out.
The storyline was great and the friendship between Ziporah and Cami was amazing, add an AWESOME man in the mix and HOLY CRAPOLA you’re up till the wee hours like me…LOL! I loved Evan and the way he treated the girls equally, and the text messages…they had me laughing out loud and waking my husband up, again, thanks Lainey!
Here’s one of the text messages:
Evan: the taste of you lingers on my tongue and I’m craving you like an addict….
Cami: If the taste of me is still lingering on your tongue…I’d say you forgot to brush your teeth. ew.
This book can be read as a standalone but I would highly recommend reading the entire series as they are all GREAT, I’ve actually read all the books multiple times.
