Dirty-Talking Cowboy (Kinky Spurs #1)

DirtyTalkingCowboy_Banner

Emma Monroe has returned to River Rock, Colorado, after the death of her grandmother. Now she’s inherited a farm full of abused animals and she’s working as a waitress at the local hotspot, Kinky Spurs. The last thing Emma wants in her life is a man, as she’s still recovering from a recent heartbreak. But when a sensual and powerful cowboy, Shep Blackshaw enters her life, Emma begins to want things she shouldn’t.

Shep knows sex shouldn’t be on his mind. He’s got a world of responsibility on his shoulders. He’s attempting to save his late father’s cattle ranch, Blackshaw Cattle Company, from foreclosure. But Emma’s heated reactions to his touch make ignoring her impossible. She’s the perfect distraction to make him forget that his father’s company is a sinking ship.

While their nights only heat up, soon emotions become tangled into the mix. Shep’s not only giving Emma the hottest nights of her life, he’s also healing her heart. With every encounter, she forgets her heartbreak. With every naughty adventure, she stops mourning the life she left behind. And with every dirty word whispered from Shep’s mouth, she stops thinking of all the reasons why she shouldn’t fall for him. But when the past comes to claim Emma, she’ll need to choose between the life she thought she wanted and the life she’s grown to love with Shep. How will she say no to forever with a dirty-talking cowboy.

The Blurb- (1)

I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

This is the first time I had read this author and any of her books,but i can say wow!

As the first book of the series, this is a good way to introduce the characters.

For the main people in the book, and the story line, it is a wonderful and such a H-O-T way to meet.

The emotions of Emma and Shep was really something to read about. Yeah, the way the thought and how they are attracted to each other was so hot, but you can see how much Shep, cared for Emma. It was so effing sweet that there are times that it made me tear up. I especially love the lines. They were so full of knowledge, that somehow, if you were in their shoes, you will definitely understand where is person is coming from.

There might be a light BDSM, but, the focal point to the story is there. Trust. Once you have lost it, it would be hard to win it again. No matter how hard you tried, a broken glass can never be whole again. The cracks are there to remind us of the past mistake.

I look forward to reading the next book of the series.

The Blurb- (2)

Emma spun on her heels, opened her mouth, then promptly closed it. All sadness fled in a millisecond.

Leaning against the doorframe, Shep wore only his jeans, no shirt in sight. Oh my fucking God. Dream Shep had nothing on the real thing. Anyone could tell that Shep worked hard for a living. He didn’t seem the type of man that would spend hours in the gym, indicating his job was the reason he was built for hard labor. His wide shoulders, squared chest, gloriously perfect six-pack with deep ridges made for exploring fingers—all of it was mouthwateringly hot.

His voice deepened into a low rumbly tone. “Darlin’, you really need to stop looking at me like that.”

She lifted her gaze to his potent stare. Heat rose to her cheeks. “I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be sorry.” The side of his mouth curved, like he knew the power he had over her. “I happen to enjoy watching you eye-fuck me, but you’re making it hard for me to be a gentleman.”

Her knees weakened, heart raced. How tempting it was to engulf this fiery passion burning between them, not run from it. And how confusing was that? No more casual sex, wasn’t that what she said? She knew where relationships like that ended up, nowhere good. Yet, her mouth parted, and out came, “What if I don’t want you to be a gentleman?”

Something fierce crossed his expression then, darkening his eyes. He stepped forward, bringing all that strong manly heat in close. He smelled of rain and wood and all that was perfect in this world. He dipped his head, and all she had to do was reach out and touch him. “What exactly do you want from me, Emma?” His lips were right there. His naked flesh, right there. “Do you want me to take control of you and roughly take what’s mine for the night?”

His sexy smile revealed a horrible truth. She nearly melted into the floor. “Oh, dear Lord, I told you about my dream?” Please say no. Please say no.

He lifted his hand, gently dragging his knuckles across her cheek. “Ah, but I happen to like that dream you had and shared with me.” He slid his thumb across her chin, tilting her head up to stare deeply into his gorgeous eyes. “You still haven’t answered me. Do you want me to kiss you slowly, savoring every little bit of your mouth?” His thumb brushed across the plumpest part of her bottom lip. “Or shall I punish you with my kiss, making you regret that you ever turned me down?” The heat of his body sizzled against her as he leaned in closer, his warm breath across her mouth. “Tell me, Emma, shall I tie you up with my ropes like I already have? Do you remember what that felt like? Did you like it, sweetheart?”

“You know I liked it,” she managed, breathless.

His grin was pure sin. “You’re right, I do know that.” He dragged his knuckles over her flushing cheek again, seemingly touching her soul-deep. Her mouth parted, breaths became heavier when he ran the pads of his fingers slowly down her arms, the power he exuded like a wall of strength in front of her. “Tell me, Emma,” he finished.

The words nearly fell out of her mouth. She wanted to experience his brand of passion. She got the feeling if she let go with him, he’d deliver where others had failed. Almost as if he’d take away all the pain, all the confusion, and silence her fears.

Her mouth parted to say, Make me forget it all. The words died in her throat. Her fears were bigger and stronger than her desire. She’d been fooled by one man before. The icy cold reminder still splintered her heart, there and unavoidable. “I can’t,” she said softly.

“You can’t.” There was no disappointment in his voice, only firmness. “Then I can’t.”

He took her hand into the strength of his, and she slowly opened her eyes, her breath catching at the contained power in his expression.

Shep breathed sex and passion, and the danger of him presented itself to her. Causal sex was one thing, but she got the feeling Shep didn’t do causal sex. He was pure emotion, total connection, and all intimacy. He’d wrap her up emotionally and take everything she had, and when he was finished with her, he’d demand more.

With his eyes locked onto hers, he led her from the bedroom. Once in the hallway, he turned to her, leaned in, and placed a soft kiss on her forehead. “Good night, Emma.”

She could finally breathe again. “Good night, Shep.”

Then with that blazing-hot gaze pinning her to where she stood, he shut the bedroom door, leaving her, and all her thoughts, alone in the quiet hallway.

The 13th book of the series…

It is the most powerful redemption book that I have ever read that Ms. Grant have written. After Phelan and Aisley’s story, I thought that was the best redemption..since Aisley was a focal point, then it was Dale. But I was wrong.

The King of Silvers, Ulrik, topped all of them.

It was a heartbreaking journey. From book one, up to this book. The tears I have shed each time his past was shown with the previous books, I wanted to get the the whole story…however, reading parts of it, and reading the whole thing from his POV hurts more.

The emotions, both past, present, and the future are combined to in this book. It is hard to form words when you can feel the tears falling down on your cheeks. There is too much emotions in the book that you would like to be in it, just to ease the pain of the people I am reading.

A book like no other, Ulrik’s story takes us in a whirlwind of emotions. Each page is full of doubt, betrayal, revenge, a thirst of power…but most importantly, it teaches us that love does heal. All you have to do is accept, to forgive, and to realize that each person has a different way to protect the people around them.

Brava, Ms. Grant! This is one amazing book, and I cannot wait to read the others.

I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

After a long while I have finally finished this book. It took time, but i enjoyed reading this book.

Bearing His Name

Has this quality that you would like to be mad at the same time cry because of the events. Still it was a good way to follow after “Bearing His Sin”.

Owned by the Lion

Will make you say “I told you so…” and then some. The story was simple, the ending was so satisfying. I am actually looking forward to the next story of this anthology.

No Need Fur Love

I love the writer, but somehow, I feel something missing in this story. It was too fast and, there were parts that I long for something more. I would leave you guys to judge this one.

Over all, it was a book worth reading. Each story continues the previous one, with out really being disconnected to it. The charm is there.

 

 

Guardian of Darkness (Darkness, #7)

37648035He saw her die in a vision…

Before five years ago, Gabriel had never met Vega, but he knows how she’s going to die. He knows he’ll be involved… unless he can make sure they never meet, never cross paths, so that his vision will never come true. So he left his pack behind, joined the Stavros pack and was determined to never let that future play out. To never meet her at all. Fate had other plans—and she walked right into his life when he least expected it. For the last five years he’s avoided Vega whenever possible even while trying to keep an eye on her. But when she gets cagey with her pack and disappears, he has no choice but to follow her. Now, circumstances are forcing them to work together and he’s determined to protect her against any threat. If that means dying for her, he’s more than willing to. But she doesn’t want his protection. If anything, she’s determined to prove she’s stronger than everyone thinks.

She’s writing her own future…

Vega isn’t the same moody teenager who came to live with the Stavros pack all those years ago. With college behind her, she’s been recruited by a division of the government’s supernatural Black Ops. Trained and more than ready for her first mission, she doesn’t expect Gabriel to crash her assignment. To save her cover, they pretend to be a couple. But soon lines are blurred and neither can deny the incendiary attraction between them. As they race to stop a man who wants to sell out their people to the highest bidder, they find themselves fighting for a future together. With time running out, she has no choice but to rely on the irresistible male who’s turned her world upside down. Unfortunately, in order to save the woman he loves, Gabriel has to give her up.

The Blurb- (1)

This was one book that I was not expecting to happen. However, it does not mean that I was not happy about it…I am amaze how this turned out.

Vega, the daughter of a very powerful alpha, and a vampire that hold equal power. If you read the series, you will know how she came about. I love her since she was introduce. She was the one thing that made Lyra go back to Finn, and it was the start of the series. Who would have thought that she will have her own HEA.

As for Gabriel, I have to go back and read the rest of the books to remember where I read him the first time. I do love him in his own book. It gave him the chance to understand who this man.

The other charterers in this book, the new ones, I am waiting if Ms, Reus will spin a story for them. Especially the older sister of the ally of the Stavros pack. I would love more stories about those Dragons. And of the other shifters in this world.

Thank you!

A Duke Like No Other (Playful Brides #9)

36048635General Mark Grimaldi is devoted to his service for the Crown, risking his life and giving up everything for his career.

A Duke Like No Other is a Regency spy caper with Valerie Bowman at her best as husband and wife match wits and may just fall in love in the process.

The Blurb- (1)

I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

This is the 9th book in the series. And of all the books this was something that I was not expecting.

However, it did not erase the fact that is was a very touching book. They say that love has it limits. But with this book, no matter the distance, the reason, and the circumstance, if each person truly love each other, it will not hinder true happiness.

For every page that I read, you can feel how much suffering Mark and Nicole felt, during and after they were together…I wanted to shout at Mark for his reasoning, but, how can I? As for Nicole, I admire her. I truly admire such a woman, and the pain of her husband’s words wounded me too.

The twist of the book was an irony, but it turned to be a good thing too.

All in all, it reflects today’s status quo. Some may not care, but other’s do. It is up to the person on how to deal with the events happening around them.

As I close this review, I am once again awed on the writing of Ms. Valerie Bowman. The depth of the emotion her characters shows the reality of those couples that are apart not because they do not love each other, but on some reasons that they are unable to go thru.

I gave this a four star rating.

Blood Mate

Blood Mate

by Mina Carter

Genre:

M/F, Paranormal, Military

38843555.jpg

Blurb:

Escaping from the Project comes with a price: the life of another.

Once a soldier, Toni is now less than human. A blood-infected subject, aka vampire, she lives to serve the command of the powers that be, but that hasn’t stopped her looking for a way out. But the only way the Project will let any of them go is in a body bag… until a lycan unit escapes and her boss offers her a deal. Bring in a lycan and she goes free.

Can she trust his word? Can she afford not to if there’s a chance she can escape and live again? Can she… when the Lycan she’s supposed to bring in becomes her very reason for living?

He was a soldier, until the project got hold of him. Now he’s a monster created in a lab.

Darce is this close to escaping his creators—until another of the Project’s experiments stops him in his tracks. Not because she has the power to hold him, but because he instantly recognizes the impossible. The vampire female is his mate.

Allowing her to bring him in is his only choice—and possibly the last mistake of his life. Enemies or lovers, it doesn’t matter. When they discover that the Project is hiding yet more secrets, they must work together to bring it down…or die in the attempt.

Product Warnings : Contains a cocky wolf who won’t take no for an answer, an ice-queen losing her cool and a pack full of hunky werewolves bent on rescue. With added zombie spidermen.
