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.

An agent broken
MI6 agent Damon Knight prided himself on always being in control. His missions were executed with cold, calculating precision. His club, The Garden, was run with an equally ordered and detached decadence. But his perfect world was shattered by one bullet, fired from the gun of his former partner. That betrayal almost cost him his life and ruined his career. His handlers want him to retire, threatening to revoke his license to kill if he doesn’t drop his obsession with a shadowy organization called The Collective. To earn their trust, he has to prove himself on a unique assignment with an equally unusual partner.
A woman tempted
Penelope Cash has spent her whole life wanting more. More passion. More adventure. But duty has forced her to live a quiet life. Her only excitement is watching the agents of MI6 as they save England and the world. Despite her training, she’s only an analyst. The closest she is allowed to danger and intrigue is in her dreams, which are often filled with one Damon Knight. But everything changes when the woman assigned to pose as Damon’s submissive on his latest mission is incapacitated. Penny is suddenly faced with a decision. Stay in her safe little world or risk her life, and her heart, for Queen and country.
An enemy revealed
With the McKay-Taggart team at their side, Damon and Penny hunt an international terrorist across the great cities of Northern Europe. Playing the part of her Master, Damon begins to learn that under Penny’s mousy exterior is a passionate submissive, one who just might lay claim to his cold heart. But when Damon’s true enemy is brought out of the shadows, it might be Penny who pays the ultimate price.
This is Book 6 in the Masters and Mercenaries Series and what can I say but O.M.G. Wowza! I was hesitant about this book because Book 5 was quite disappointing for me, but when I start a series I’m committed to finishing it regardless of the outcome – this book was AWESOME, totally a 4-star read for me!! I finished this book and loved everything about it. The only problem I had with it was that it’s based in London and the word “arse” gets on my nerves, so I substituted ass where appropriate..LOL. Even though it was based in London we still had all the McKay-Taggart guys and girls in it, which I really love the flow of the characters through the entire series. This book had such a happy ending for me I almost cried. The main characters were amazing, strong and awesome! The plot line was really good and kept you on the edge of your seat and guessing ~ I had trouble putting it down to sleep at night! The next book in this series is Book 7 A View to a Thrill which comes out TODAY, what I’ve learned of the main characters it’s gonna be interesting! You’ll definitely want to read this series in order and trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
I did not read books 4.5, 5.5 or 6.5. The main characters of these books were not really discussed or described to be interesting to where I would want to read a “short” book about them. I highly recommend this series and you won’t miss out on anything by skipping the short books, well, maybe a little sex but there’s enough in the main books to keep you going.

An ‘Enjoying the Chase’ novella.
Twelve overgrown man-children, sixteen hours, and a whole lot of liquor. Just how much fun can be had in one night?
Join Nate, Ashton and their friends on a wild night out on the town.
This was a funny novella. It is the night before Nate’s wedding to Rosie and Ashton shows up to take Nate out for his bachelor party. I can’t even begin to explain what happens in it because I feel like it would give it all away. I will tell you this though, I was laughing from the 1st chapter to the last. I even had to stop and tell my husband about various scenes throughout the book. There was even a part that said this bachelor party should be “The Hangover Part 4” and I agree! The humor in this book was right up there with “The Hangover” movies, because it was definitely “One Wild Night!!” And I’m positive that the next morning people were going to be cringing when they remember what they did. Or for some of them, they will be regretting their decisions, BAHAHAHAHA!!! And if they don’t remember, there are always the videos that were going up on YouTube. Even Nate’s dad and soon-to-be father-in-law got down and crazy. Heck, I think they were the CRAZIEST!!!! Kirsty Moseley is a talented author and nothing fell short in this novella. This is a MUST read series!!

A Tragic Love Story
Charlotte Dennis’s mission was clear: distract and misdirect CIA operative Ian Taggart by any means necessary. If she failed, she would never see her sister again. With her training, it should have been simple, but after one night in Ian’s arms, she knew that saving her sister would mean losing the man of her dreams.
Ian was tracking a terrorist when he met the beautiful American daughter of a Russian mobster. His instincts told him Charlotte was trouble, but his body craved her like a drug and his heart would not be denied. She took his ring and his collar. For once he was truly happy. But as he closed in on his target, her betrayal cost him his mission while her sacrifice saved his life. As she died in his arms, Ian vowed he would never love again.
A Dangerous Reunion
For six years, Charlotte has thought of nothing but returning to her husband, her Master. Working in the shadows, she has devoted herself to earning a chance to reclaim her place in Ian’s life. But forgiveness isn’t a part of Ian’s vocabulary.
Nothing is more important to Ian Taggart than his new mission. But the information he needs is firmly in the hands of the woman who betrayed him. To catch his most dangerous prey, Ian will have to let Charlotte back into his life. As the hunt takes them to some of the world’s most exotic locations, the danger grows and their passion reignites.
Will Ian forgive his wayward submissive…or lose her again?
This is Book 5 in the Masters and Mercenaries Series, and you will want to read them in order. Don’t let the first line of the synopsis scare you away from this book ~ it’s not tragic and it’s not sad; however, it was a 3-star read for me. I’m not sure what I can say without giving away everything, but I was very upset at the end of the book. I loved the main characters and their story but I felt it ended abruptly and I’m sorry but that really ticked me off! I was invested in the characters (all of them) and the plot line (rogue CIA agent) and then it was like all of a sudden the book ended. I wanted to know what happened after the mission was over, how the characters got back into mainstream living or you could’ve given me that before the mission was over, I would’ve been happy with that too. Don’t let this book discourage you from going to Book 6 because it made up for my aggravation of this one. I still loved the series, so I kept reading.

Her submission fulfilled her
When Eve St. James married Alex McKay, she had her whole life ahead of her. They were the FBI’s golden couple by day, but by night Eve gave herself over to her husband’s world of Dominance and submission filled with pleasures she came to crave.
His betrayal destroyed her
Worried for her safety, Alex left Eve behind to tackle a dangerous mission. But Alex never suspected that Eve was the real target and her security is destroyed by a madman. By the time he rescues her, his wife has been changed forever.
But when her life is in danger he is her only hope
Unable to heal the damage, Alex and Eve are still trapped together in a cycle of pleasure and misery that even their divorce cannot sever. But when a threat from Eve’s past resurfaces, Alex will stop at nothing to save her life and reclaim her heart.
This is Book 4 in the Masters and Mercenaries Series. In case you are wondering there are currently 6 books in the series and Book 7 will be out August 19, 2014!! Yippee skippee, I am super excited for the 7th book to come out. You will want to read these books in order as there is a definite mysterious plot going through all the books and if not read in order you’re probably going to be lost. I love to read a whole series at once, but I have to say that this book in the series was a little slow for me. I found myself thumbing through a lot because they were still chasing the rogue CIA agent and you could see up front what was going to happen on the next page, no suspense. I liked the dialogue with the crew from McKay-Taggart, which is the name of the company that everyone works for, and by this book everyone has been introduced into the series and have their own little thing going so that helped a lot. The main characters were so-so for me, I really looked forward to what was happening with the other characters.

Liam O’Donnell fled his native Ireland years ago after one of his missions ended in tragedy and he was accused of killing several of his fellow agents. Shrouded in mystery, Liam can’t remember that fateful night. He came to the United States in disgrace, seeking redemption for crimes he may or may not have committed. But the hunt for an international terrorist leads him to London and right back into the world he left behind.
A Woman Looking for a Future…
Avery Charles followed her boss to London, eager to help the philanthropist with his many charities. When she meets a mysterious man who promises to show her London’s fetish scene, she can’t help but indulge in her darkest fantasies. Liam becomes her Dom, her protector, her lover. She opens her heart and her home to him, only to discover he’s a man on a mission and she’s just a means to an end.
When Avery’s boss leads them to the traitorous Mr. Black, Liam must put together the puzzle of his past or Avery might not have a future…
This is Book #3 in the Masters and Mercenaries Series. I have posted the links for Books 1 & 2 at the end of this post. You’ll definitely want to read them in order, and you won’t be disappointed. This book had me at the name Liam, haha don’t you just love that name in a book though. He didn’t play a big part in the other books but what he did play I loved so I was glad he got his own book. I LOVED the story of him and his new found love Avery. She was so sweet and he was so hard but she softened him so much it was wonderful to see. This was another 4-star read for me. This book had a little more dialogue than the others, I thought, and was a little more intriguing with putting the puzzle pieces together on their mysterious Mr. Black (rogue CIA agent) from the other books. I’m not a mystery kinda girl but this book had me going to the end in no time. I was sucked in and couldn’t stop reading till they got to the end and solved the mystery in my head. Reading about Liam and Avery will have you swooning in no time.
