❋NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: The One For Me by Sydney Landon❋



the one for me cover

The New York Times bestselling author of Watch Over Me delivers a steamy new novel of irresistible attraction in her popular Danvers series.

Mark DeSanto has never denied himself anything—especially in the bedroom. Rich, attractive, and successful, men envy him and women desire him. But when a sweet, guileless beauty faints at his feet, he suddenly finds himself wondering if it’s time to look for something more lasting…

Until her divorce, Crystal Webber never knew what it was like to follow her heart. Now she wants to experience all life has to offer. So when she catches a glimpse of Mark DeSanto in the halls of Danvers International, she’s instantly infatuated—and eager to join him for a walk on the wild side. Fainting at his feet wasn’t her plan, but at least it got his attention…

But for the first time, Mark wants to take things slow, which—considering the electricity between them—may take far more willpower than he’s ever had.

Mark & Crystal
5 Stars

So this installment into the Danver’s menagerie is a little different than the rest. Wanna know why? It’s hotter, it’s sexier, and holy freaking hell is it ever dirty! I have love this series from get-go. Sydney’s books are always so well rounded… Sexy alpha, head-strong female, a dilemma, a solution, and a kickass climax. I’m not gonna sit here and blow smoke up your ass, if you’re checking this book out it’s because you already love Sydney like I do. What I will do is tell you right from the start you’ll be captivated with Mark DeSanto and his jet black hair and Crystal Webber and her quirky banter! Good luck not laughing out loud or wiping tears away!

Crystal comes from a bizarre home. We met her mother back in another book, the title escapes me at the moment, but that woman was a total jerkface back then and believe me you she doesn’t get any better in this one. Crystal struggles to please her Mother, but can never quite get there. She makes some dreadful decision based on shit other people want and finds herself in some pretty sticky situations. When an illness lands her in Mark DeSanto’s life, you can bet your ass that things are going to change.

Mark’s life has been anything but simple and he likes it that way. He lives life on the edge. Different women grace his arm and bed regularly. His business comes first and he’s a very hands on kind of guy. His childhood wasn’t much better than Crystals. His parents pretty much ignored him. Drinking and partying their life away on his dime. When he meets Crystal, well, he can’t quite figure out why he’s so compelled to take care of her or why he can’t stop thinking about her or why the thought of her without him doesn’t seem to be an option. Just talking about this is putting the goofiest damn smile on my face.

The supporting character cast is enormous as usual. All the chickies, all the Danver’s men, and those miserable parents on both sides. I really wanted to beat the crap outta of those parents. I mean who really treats their kids or family that way? Why would Mark or Crystal put up with it for so long? Damn Sydney, you’re killing me. One character that stands out to me is Denny, Mark’s cousin and driver. This guy will have you rolling on the floor, laughing your ass off. Very cool dude!

I really enjoyed this one. I even think this may be my favorite Danvers novel. The pacing kept me enthralled and never left me wanting to skip around. The dialogue flowed with efficiency and so much stinking humor I must have highlighted like an insane amount of the banter! Those “tweets” back and fourth were superb! The tension was a great build and that climax, Wowza! I loved it immensely.

One lie. One act of revenge. One obsessive love.

I was only fifteen when I sent the love of my life to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Rafe Mason, rising MMA star, my brother’s best friend, and the guy my foolish heart yearned for. The guy my foolish heart won’t forget even now that eight years have gone by. But now he’s free and only wants one thing: me at his mercy.

And I am.

I’m a prisoner on his island, held captive by his deviant desires, bound by his justified fury. Even worse, I’m a hostage of my own treacherous heart. But the lie I told eight years ago is ricocheting, destroying lives and altering the course of fate. Neither of us saw it coming.

The violence and death. The betrayal. The utter destruction that leaves us in ruins.

How can a single lie cause so much devastation? Redemption seems impossible because neither of us can undo what’s been done. I belong to him as much as he belongs to me, and we’ll fight for each other or go down in flames trying.

Includes Torrent, Rampant, Fervent, and Vagrant. Intended for mature readers who enjoy a dark romance with a lot of suspense, disturbing themes, and a HEA. Not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned.

A Therian Agents Romance



Turner jumped off
the bed like her kiss had burned him. Riley looked up at him, confused. Had she
done something wrong?
He paced the small room and raked both hands through his hair,
the movement causing the muscles in his arms to flex and strain against the
thin fabric of his t-shirt. His face had gone pale, and there was a faint sheen
of sweat on his forehead.
“Are you okay?”
“No, I’m not fucking okay,” he bit out, pinning her
with a fierce gaze.
She drew back, not prepared for the intensity she saw behind his
silvery blue eyes. He looked as if he were ready to consume her with his next
breath, which wasn’t all that unlikely considering he was a lion.
“Sorry,” she whispered, as if she had made the
accusation out loud.
He scrubbed his hands over his face. “You’ve done nothing
She crawled off the bed and stood, making her way towards the
door. “I shouldn’t have asked you to lie down with me. Whatever this is
between us, it’s best we—”
He had her pinned before she could blink, his hard body pressed
against her, palms flat against the wall, trapping her. “You have no
fucking idea what’s between us.”
His voice was thick, heavy with need, and she shivered in
Holy hell the man was sexy.
“Then tell me,” she whispered.
She didn’t think it was possible, but his expression darkened
even more. A look that made her insides melt.
He was close enough that his breath tickled her lips. His gaze
slid down to her mouth as he brought a hand to her throat. His thumb caressed
the area where her pulse seemed to beat with a life of its own. He dipped his
head and ran his lips over down her neck, nipping gently at the spot his thumb
had been.
A soft moan formed in her throat. He barely touched her and yet
her entire body trembled with need.
“Turner.” She could hear the plea in her voice,
demanding more.
A growl, more animal than human, resonated from his chest.
“My lion wants to mark you.”
“Mark me?”
He nodded slowly, his gaze returning to hers. “Make you my
“Oh.” She didn’t know what else to say. The idea sent
a thrill of excitement down her spine. His animal wanted her, but by his
reaction, she knew the man in him wasn’t too keen on the idea. “And that
makes you mad?”
He tilted his head and studied her. “It just complicates
“Because of my father.”
He nodded, and she thought for a second he would back away.
She placed her hands on his chest, willing him to stay. “It
doesn’t have to be complicated. I’m not looking for anything long-term. To be
A small laugh rattled in his chest, and he gripped the back of
her neck, placing his forehead against hers. His other hand tightened around
her waist, drawing her closer to him. She could feel the thick length of him
pressing against her stomach. 
He let out a harsh, drawn out breath. “What do you
want, Riley?”
Arching into him, desperate for his touch, she ran her fingers
down his chest, stomach, until she was cupping him boldly.
Her whole body trembled as she gave voice to her desire.
“You. I want—”
His lips descended on hers before she could finish, devouring
her mouth until they were both breathless. There was an element of something
dark, dangerous, almost feral in the kiss, and for a moment, she wondered if
she should be afraid. As his tongue swept into her mouth again, the thought
She shouldn’t be having these feelings, but there was no more
denying them. She was head over heels in lust with Turner Payne.
His fingers slid into her hair, tugging her head back, so he
could rake his tongue along her jaw and down her neck.
She ached to have him inside her, to feel his hands and mouth on
her body. “Please.”
Effortlessly, he lifted her arms around his neck and scooped her
up, carrying her to the bed. When he placed her down on the mattress and stood,
she whimpered at the loss of contact between them.
He pulled his shirt over his head and tossed it on the floor.
“Is this what you want?”
All she could do was nod and watch as he slowly unbuckled his
belt. Her mouth watered, and she swallowed hard as his pants dropped to the
floor. His cock strained against the fabric of his boxer briefs and she could
see the delicious length of him. She’d seen his glorious body before, but never
with the intention of what they were about to do, and she felt her cheeks burn.
“Take off your clothes, Riley.”
The dominance in his voice made her thighs
clench. She obeyed, acutely aware of the way his gaze followed her every
movement. Stretching her shirt over her arms, she discarded it on the floor.
She kneeled before him, one the bed, in her bra and panties. Her knees shook
and it took all her strength to stay there, as his eyes roamed over her body.
