Reagan
My husband and I know how to fight. We perfected the art when running against each other for Congress. But that fighting revealed a passion for each other that we couldn’t deny. Battle lines were erased as enemies became lovers. But now we’re in the fight of our lives – we’re battling a smear campaign as he runs for governor. And again, we find ourselves drawn to do what we do best. I won’t be controlled, even by the man who owns my heart. But as tensions escalate to a boiling point, I discover there is one place I like checking my defiance – the bedroom. As Jude takes his dominance over me to a new level, I discover that submission can bring me to places I’ve ever known.

 

MY REVIEW:

Dirty Defiance by Chelle Bliss & Brenda Rothert
Jude & Reagan
BACK AT IT AND HOTTER THAN EVAH
5 Stars

Who knew there was more to these exquisite characters? Who knew that a run for the Governor’s office would be so demanding? Chelle and Brenda, that’s who!! This continuation of Jude and Ray’s life is stressful and exhilarating all at the same time. It was fun to revisit them and see where life has taken them and will be taking them.

Jude is still the brooding alpha Marine, only this time he’s running for Governor. Trying to win the election and keep his marriage in tact are like trying to sew two pieces of Jell-O together. Virtually impossible! He knows what to do, but not how to do it. Now we sit back and wait!

Reagan is seeing things a little bit different now that she’s not running for any seat. She’s a “working girl,” but still finds time for her handsome hubs, that is until he assumes she’ll put his career ahead of hers. Never assume!

Tempers flares, feelings get hurt, and scandals are a plenty. This story was fun and witty yet intense and passionate. These characters fit together well, but face some huge hurdles along the way. It was a quick read, but packed with an excellent storyline. The pacing is perfect, the writing style flawless, and the tension thick. I absolutely enjoyed my time back with Jude and Ray.

Review: Dirty Bastard by Jessica Clare

36141682

Billionaire roughneck Knox Price finds himself twisted by desire for a yoga teacher in this new romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Dirty Scoundrel.

Knox Price has always fallen short in comparison to his brothers. Boone is the ambitious one. Clay is the nice one. Gage is the handsome one. And Knox? Well, he’s the cynical one. The odd man out in the ultra-wealthy but rather unique Price family. It’s not that Knox hates people–it’s that humanity always disappoints him. When you become an oil-rich, Texan billionaire overnight, people treat you a certain way. Just once he’d like to meet someone that isn’t dazzled by his wallet.

Then, he meets struggling yoga teacher Lexi Brandon. She’s weird. She’s unpredictable and tends to say strange things. She lurks in the bushes and dresses in all black. She loves when people cross the street to get away from her. Lexi’s definitely not his type, but she’s also the first one to ever truly see him and not just another rich, dirty Price.

And that’s…fascinating. But how do you catch the interest of a woman who goes out of her way to be odd? When an unexpected surprise throws them both for a loop, Knox decides it’s time to get down and dirty, abandon the rules, and be who he truly is–a bastard.

  

MY REVIEW

Dirty Bastard by Jessica Clare
Knox & Lexi
I KEEP FALLING IN LOVE WITH THESE GUYS
5 Stars

Wow… I mean… WOW!! These Roughneck Billionaire boys just keep getting hotter and hotter. Just when you think you know them and what they’ll do, they surprise you. I don’t know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt!

Knox is your discreet, prankster type. He’ll put ketchup in your beer and sit back and patiently wait the show. He’s wise to the gold digging women out there and prefers his life to be as uncomplicated as possible. Wait till he meets Lexi, shit’s about to get real.

Lexi (short for Meredith – lmao) is yoga instructor. A good one, but business isn’t always so “busy.” Maybe it’s her “charming” personality. She’s a recluse and prefers her solitary lifestyle. Don’t mistake me; even though she’s a hermit, her one liners and zingers are amazing… she made me laugh out loud multiple times.

The best part about this story is that it has all the elements to perfectly round it out. There’s suspense, love, sex, humor, and the writing style is flawless. The pacing is fast, the dialogue flows nicely, and the characters are entertaining. I loved it!

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.

Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the ‘naughty parts’ of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.

After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own – stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.

EXCERPT:

I don’t pay much attention to what I’m throwing into my suitcase as I pack. Some of the clothes are still in their dry cleaning bags. I’ll manage a few work outfits out of all this stuff.

I’m pretty pissed. After three weeks apart, Jude took off on me and won’t answer my calls or texts. I missed him like crazy, playing the role of doting politician’s wife while he campaigned.

He knows how much I was dreading that fucking interview and photo shoot for a magazine spread about our home life. Even with the cleaning and decorating help his staff hired, I had to make sure everything was just perfect myself. When a photographer is coming into your home, you have to make sure every last thing is on point.

But I gladly did all of it for him. He’s only home for two days before he hits the campaign trail again, and I’m livid that he fucked me and hardly said two words to me before storming out of here.

We agreed before we got married that nothing would ever come between us. Not politics, not my father—our marriage comes first.

But today his fucking ego came first, and I’m not waiting around until he decides to come home.

I’ve been sidelining my work for months now, focusing on helping Jude instead. And that’s been hard for me, because I’m passionate about my work. I’m the US Congress liaison for The Lancet Foundation, an organization founded two years ago to advocate for bipartisanship.

Jude and I have become the poster children for crossing party lines to find common ground. As Congressional opponents, we should have been enemies. For a while, we kind of were. But I quickly fell for him, seeing that what brought us together was more important than what we disagreed about.

I didn’t drop out of the race because of our relationship, but because the revelation about my father’s secret family made me reevaluate what was really important to me. But I’ve taken lots of hits from women’s groups within the Democratic Party for stepping aside for my man.

Fuck them. They don’t know me, and they don’t know us.

I add a couple pairs of heels and my travel makeup bag to the suitcase, zipping it closed. When I pick up my phone, I see a text from Julia, my assistant. She’s booked my flight and arranged for me to be picked up in DC when I arrive late this afternoon.

I’ve been pushing this trip back for weeks, prioritizing Jude and his campaign. No more.

#Review – Swallow Me Whole by @gemmajames80

39324700

Sadie Sawyer wants to learn how to blow a guy.

She’s my sister’s best friend.
The girl I’ve known since grade school.
The girl I’ve always considered off-limits.

She’s the girl that crawled under a table in a bar one night and changed everything between us. Now the brain in my pants is more than willing to step up. The rules are simple.

No kissing.
No screwing.
No falling in love.

But the more I let her use my body in the name of experimentation, the more I know being friends isn’t enough. Is it too much to want it all with her?

The taste of her lips.
The sweetness of her innocence.
The chance to earn her love.

I might have a real shot with her…if her douchebag ex and my past don’t ruin everything.

Swallow Me Whole is a friends-to-lovers standalone romance. Full-length at 77,000 words.

MY REVIEW

Swallow Me Whole by Gemma James
Sadie & Ashton
LOOK OUT DOUGLAS FALLS
5 Stars

What an endearing and complex tale. Sometimes when you think you know where a stories going, you’re blindsided by a plot twist. So sit down, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!

Sadie is caught up trying to please all the men in her life when she should be focusing on herself. She has a cheating boyfriend, a domineering father, and a bestie who tries to push her to be her best and make decisions that aren’t necessarily for “her.”

Ashton is known to be the town “manwhore,” and doesn’t even want to think about commitment. Until an incident with Sadie leaves him with his mouth hanging open, his pants undone, and his mind and other things blown!

The supporting character cast is small but I just have to say something about Sadie’s father. This guy needs a high five in the face with a chair. Jeeze man… family first!

This is a quick read, a standalone… I know I know.. Gemma James (The Queen of Cliffys) wrote a standalone… well, she did and it was fantastic. The pacing is fast, the dialogue flowed, and the characters are comical and endearing. Loved it!

Gemma James

Gemma James is a USA Today and Amazon bestselling author of a blend of genres, from new adult suspense to dark erotic romance. She loves to explore the darker side of human nature in her fiction, and she’s morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy, from deviant sex to serial killers. Readers have described her stories as being “not for the faint of heart.”

She warns you to heed their words! Her playground isn’t full of rainbows and kittens, though she likes both. She lives in Oregon with her husband and their four children–three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
